We Believe in Santa Claus

Young children believe in Santa Claus. That’s a good thing.

After the age of seven children stop believing in Santa Claus, or so we think.

At that age the Santa Claus story is replaced with a new one: the legitimacy of our democracy.

Yep, it’s about that age – six or seven – when children go to school and are made fun of if they still believe in Santa Claus.

Not to worry, though, a new Santa Claus story exists for them to learn.

And this Santa Claus story, the legitimacy of our democracy, is the Santa Claus story that rarely gets demolished.

This is when children are indoctrinated into the purity of America, its leaders and its “pristine” democracy.

Hagiography runs supreme in first grade.

This is when your first grade teacher tells you the basic lies of America.

George Washington threw a silver dollar over the Potomac river. He didn’t. The Potomac River is 1100 feet at its narrowest. That is more than three football fields.

It is safe to say that Drew Brees himself couldn’t throw a silver dollar across the Potomac.

George Washington never told a lie. He did.

America is always the good guy. She isn’t.

The rest of the world are barbarians. They’re not.

Nevertheless, most people harbor and cherish these lies throughout their entire lives.

They don’t want to know the truth.

And every day, especially on Sunday morning, these lies are hammered home upon the American psych on the daily news shows.

Is it any wonder that Americans will sign up in droves when a national calamity occurs?

It isn’t.

Just a few minutes ago I was watching Whitney Webb talk to Glenn Beck about the corruption in our United States government.

I respect what she says, but she doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of convincing my friend Johnny.

Johnny is college educated.

You would expect Johnny to see through the veneer of lies that propagandize the American people daily.

He doesn’t.

Not only does Johnny not see through the bullshit, he doesn’t want to see through the bullshit.

Johnny still believes in Santa Claus.

Johnny wants to believe in Santa Claus, so when Whitney Webb comes around and tells a story contrary to that, Johnny gets angry.

Hey, Whitney Webb is the bad guy.

Johnny doesn’t want his fantasy world disturbed.

He wants to believe in the honesty and integrity of American government.

He watches those old Jimmy Stewart movies, like Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington, and he believes it.

He believes that anyone can be President of the United States.

He doesn’t want to know that we are ruled by a Harvard-dominated oligarchy.

He will bury his head in the sand against all evidence, and say: I think I think our country is still pretty good.

Forget about the runaway homelessness.

Forget about teen suicides out of control.

Forget about rampant drug abuse.

Forget about mass shootings on a weekly basis.

Forgot about inflation out the ass.

Forget about our out of control empire that killed 4,000,000 in Vietnam, another 2,000,000 in the Middle East.

It doesn’t matter that Johnny is getting hammered economically by our corrupt leaders.

He’s fully committed to the Santa Claus story.

Why shouldn’t he be committed?

He’s been propagandized on a daily basis for his entire life starting in first grade when he was told the lies about George Washington.

That’s right, Johnny. You keep believing in those stories.

Logical Killings

You’ve heard the term senseless killing.

Every time we have a mass murder, like the one in Nashville recently, you hear a tele-boob state that this was a senseless killing.

No, my friend, it wasn’t a senseless killing at all.

It was a totally logical event.

It made total sense.

OK, I get what you mean.

But actually, I don’t get what you mean.

You mean by senseless killing that the act was irrational, that a normal person wouldn’t do that.

In that respect, you are 100% correct.

A normal person like you wouldn’t do that.

Unfortunately, the people who are doing these killings are often not deranged at all.

Yes, it is true, some people are hearing voices.

But all too often, the person is not hearing voices.

But even if they were hearing voices, everything right now that I now say to you would still be true.

What is going on in a mass shooting is that the killer is enraged about their condition in life and simply wants to get some payback on somebody.

Why is this occurring?

It’s important to ask this because these mass shootings didn’t occur when I was a boy.

They just didn’t.

So what has changed in the last seventy years.

What has changed in the last seventy years is the social contract we have with each other.

When I was a boy, you did not have the massive polarization of wealth that you have today.

There was a social covenant that we had with each other in which we agreed not to rip each other off.

Hence, there was a greater equalness in wealth.

Consequently, you did not have so many people financially distressed as you do today. There were unions. There were protections. There were mechanisms in place both legal and social which ensured that people got a more equitable stake in the game.

This is important because a person’s financial health is directly correlated with their mental health.

When the family’s financial health goes down the tubes, all sorts of social ills arise.

You get increased drug use, you get increased sexual abuse, you get increased physical abuse, you get increased homelessness, you get increased crime, and the list goes on.

It’s not a coincidence that we have more teen suicides, more depression, more anxiety.

Add in to this mix the lousy celebrity culture, gambling at your local convenience store, violent video games, degrading music, cheap gossip, mindless pressure inducing standardized testing, creepy pornography a click away, TikTok, dehumanizing social media, and you get a vile sulfurous stew.

Yep, it smells like a rotten egg.

And that’s because it is.

People are hurting.

People are lining up at food banks.

Think of these increased social ills as bubbles in a boiling tea pot.

When you increase the heat in society, and heat is the pain, heat is the financial stress, you get more bubbles or more social disease.

A really big bubble is synonymous with a mass shooting.

Keep increasing the heat and you keep increasing the number of mass shootings.

It’s simple physics.

It makes total sense

It’s totally logical.

It’s not senseless at all.

A Bad Brand of Political Discussion

The other day Tucker Carlson told us that Greg Gutfeld had surpassed Stephen Colbert in the ratings.

Apparently this is the first time that a cable show has defeated a network show in the ratings.

We are supposed to celebrate.

Are you worried?

You should be.

As a conservative let me say this, Gutfeld is one of the most inane shows I have ever seen in my life.

If this is the future, count me out.

Through his show, Gutfeld dumbs down the American public.

His sarcastic comedy is a cheap substitute for serious discussion.

Moreover, Gutfeld recruits people into the political process who should never be there in the first place.

Politics should be boring, boring, boring.

We want it boring so that people who don’t know what they’re talking about, people who don’t read books, will go away and focus their time on the Kardashians.

By making politics exciting and funny, Gutfeld recruits clueless boobs into the voting booths.

These people will be enticed into thinking that they know the issues.

These people will then actually vote.

Gutfeld is not giving us an intelligent alternative to Stephen Colbert, he is replicating Stephen Colbert for a different group of people – conservatives.

This is bad news for us.

We don’t need any more Stephen Colberts, John Stewarts, Bill Mahers, or people of this ilk.

Nor do we need more Greg Gutfelds.

We actually need none of them.

When you watch these shows, you don’t learn anything new. All you learn are jokes.

These shows don’t cater to the truth; they cater to the cheapest quick gimmick that will gain laughs and applause.

Instead of experts or people who know what they’re talking about, you get pseudo experts in the form of Gutfeld’s friends.

You also get SNL type skits, lots of chuckling, jokes, and sexual innuendo.

It’s a morning zoo type atmosphere producing a wall of sound designed to entertain, not inform.

The Important point about all this is that legitimate criticism of establishment ideas is not even permitted. For example, both sides in the political debate nonchalantly accept without pause that Putin is the bad guy when it comes to Ukraine. Gutfeld isn’t challenging Colbert about Putin’s nature; he is opposed to sending billions to Ukraine.

Well, hold on a minute, shouldn’t Gutfeld be talking about why Putin is invading in the first place? Shouldn’t he be talking about NATO’s encroachment into Russia’s sphere of influence? Shouldn’t he talk about Ukraine’s violation of the Minsk Accords? Of course he should, but he doesn’t.

Maybe Putin isn’t the bad guy.

Uh oh, danger, Will Robinson, that’s an unapproved thought!

Both Gutfeld and Colbert both turn politics into a sporting match.

What you are watching is the Kansas City Chiefs versus the Las Vegas Raiders.

Both shows will oppose each other on every issue.

There will never be any common ground.

But what if both sides are wrong?

Perhaps the right move for Gutfeld is not to oppose Stephen Colbert on a particular issue with the cheapest of arguments, but to jettison the battle altogether.

Or better yet, to agree with the other side.

Let’s look at a particular example.

Why is it necessary for Gutfeld’s guests to reflexively oppose student loan relief?

Why not bring on educators, university presidents, and experts on education who can explain why tuition costs escalated so rapidly, and what schools did with the money.

Why why not just ask questions?

Young people on the right should not be herded into the cattle pen of mindless reflexive opposition to everything a Democrat says.

Nor should young people on the left be herded into the cattle pen of mindless reflexive opposition to everything a Republican says.

Both should be encouraged to ask questions and to gravitate toward the truth that the answers to those questions reveal.

A Republican party is not made stronger by opposing everything that the Democratic Party stands for.

Nor is a Democratic Party made stronger by opposing everything that the Republican party stands for.

Both Gutfeld and Colbert weaken the electorate by inviting you to mindlessly oppose the opposition.

They do it through jokes and stunts.

You don’t win a contest by relying on tricks.

You win a game by consistently hitting solid shots.

Democracy only works with an informed electorate.

Gutfeld and Colbert do not substantively inform the electorate.

Let me illustrate exactly how their shows do damage.

To begin with, both Gutfeld and Colbert are owned by Corporate America.

Essentially then Corporate America is foisting mob rule on the American electorate through Greg Gutfeld and Stephen Colbert.

Let’s say that in a world without comedians controlling politics there is an issue in which ten million people care enough to educate themselves. Let us suppose that those ten million people are divided evenly according to their political persuasion. There are five million people on the right, and there are five million people on the left.

Suppose on this particular issue though, eight million people believe that we should choose X as a solution whereas two million people believe we should choose Y as a solution.

Enter Gutfeld and Colbert who mob up fifty million people on each side to mindlessly oppose each other.

Suddenly the disparity dissipates. There are now 58 million people who believe that we should choose A as a solution whereas 52 million people people believe that we should choose Y as a solution.

The politicians will now look at the polling data and say that it’s pretty close to a tossup as to which solution should be chosen.

America is deeply divided, the politicians will now say as they do nothing.

Corporate America has now once again controlled the politician’s mind. Of course, Corporate America already owns the politician, but now Corporate America has made it much easier for the politician to do whatever Corporate America wants them to do given that opinion is pretty much divided.

Moreover, since Corporate America controls both shows, Corporate America can shift opinion by controlling the show’s availability, content and focus. For example, Corporate America may decide to tell Colbert to back off an issue while allowing Gutfeld to go crazy. Thus an 8 million to 2 million disparity in favor of Colbert might be converted to a 8 million to 32 million disparity in favor of Gutfeld!

This is the danger of Gutfeld and Colbert and the brand of political discussion they offer.

It doesn’t work for you; it works for the people who control the media.

The people who take the time to read books and keep informed about the issues whether right or left are rubbed out and tossed to the side of the road by the ignorant, raging mob – all in the name of democracy.

America the Mobster

Have you ever wondered why we don’t have much more inflation than we do in the United States?

Our government has been printing money like crazy, and has been for sometime, so why don’t we have more inflation?

Our government has been printing trillions of dollars for all sorts of stuff – for war, for COVID-19, for foreign aid, for electric vehicles, for green energy, for the military. Shouldn’t we see more inflation?

Along those lines, how is it possible for the dollar to become stronger against other currencies? Why is the dollar stronger? You would think it would be weaker than ever?

Well, the two phenomena are related, and they have to do with America’s role in the world. 

America is the top mobster in the world. We are the new King Louis. We are the Sun King.

Just as the Sun King was a ruthless thug and a parasite upon France, America is a ruthless thug and a parasite upon the world.

Ask yourself this question: How is it possible for America to run trade deficits for decades and be stronger economically?

What precisely are we giving the world in return for all these products the world is selling to us? After all, we don’t make much anymore. Yes, we do export grains and oil, but not much else on balance.

Well, we are giving the world dollars and other countries are using them.

Yes, but why are they doing that?

They are doing that because the US is currently the world’s reserve currency. In other words, America is printing money for the rest of the world.

Yes, but why would the rest of the world agree to that? What is ultimately backing this up?

Power and force.

The United States is currently the wealthiest and strongest country in the world. We have the strongest military by far, and we use it liberally.

We destroy nations like Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. We do it whenever it suits our fancy. And, if we want a nations’ resources, we either confiscate it directly through our military, or we foment an internal rebellion – as we did in Indonesia.

The United States of America uses its military and its financial power to take a cut of every country’s resources in the world. 

We are no different than King Lous or Kim Jung Un.

We are ruthless. That is the basis of our power.

We are the new Peaky Blinders. Other people work for us. We are like those Soprano characters who sit around the union job site and do nothing. Or we are like John Friendly in On the Waterfront.

Why does the world put up with this?

Unfortunately, humanity naturally gravitates toward power.

There may be a minority in each country who do not like this arrangement, but too bad. The leaders of these other countries are bought off by America. These leaders are the thugs that America props up around the globe. They answer to America.

So if the citizens of Haiti or Indonesia don’t like the working conditions that America sets up for them, America will suppress these workers through one of its dictators.

America is a mobster.

America enslaves Third World nations through its military and financial power.

America also runs protection rackets around the world.

For a small fee America will not totally destroy your country. What is that fee?

More often than not that fee is foreign aid in which you agree to purchase goods off US corporations.

Or America will make you a loan either directly, or through its puppet the IMF.

Naturally, you will have to pay that back. 

But of course you will never be able to pay that back because a stiff portion of that aid will go into the dictator’s pockets.

Your poor country will be helplessly mired in debt.

Your currency will then  be ruthlessly devalued.

Your people will begin to hoard American one-hundred dollar bills to protect themselves against inflation. America likes this because that makes the American dollar stronger. That enables you to sell more of your slave labor exports to America.  

In time, your country becomes dependent upon these slave labor exports.

If you try to stabilize your currency, your exports will go down and you will suffer.

If you decide to not sell your slave labor exports to America in order to make your nation better, the US through the CIA will send agents into your country to overthrow your leader In favor of a thug who is more amenable to what America wants.

Do you get the drift here?

America is forcing the rest of the world into slave status. We are no different than Rome.

It’s a racket.

It’s like paying a mobster a cut of all your labor.

Oh, did I forget to mention that America Capone compels all nations to buy and purchase oil with US dollars. And if you don’t you’re toast. If you try to circumvent the racket as did Gadaffi and Hussein, you’re a dead man.

Congratulations, world, you now exist to make the fancy robes and slippers that  King Louis will adorn himself with.

I Support the Founding Fathers, Old and New, Those Traitorous Insurrectionists

Are you one of these people who condemns the January 6 insurrection?

Are you a wimpy, wussy bitch like Sean Hannity who condemns the invasion of the Capitol?

Not me.

Are you sick and tired of these pseudo-conservative cowards who constantly egg people on to do something about the unfairness in society, and then, when the people act, condemn what they do?

Why should any of us condemn what those brave insurrectionists did on January 6?

Do you condemn the American colonists and the Founding Fathers for standing up to the British?

They would’ve been hung, you know, by that tyrant and motherfucker, King George, if they had failed. That’s what British monarchs did.

They also impaled their insurrectionists on poles outside the city of London up until the 1800s, not too long ago.

Oh, you say, it’s not the same thing. You can’t compare the Founding Fathers and the insurrectionists on January 6.

Oh, yes, it is the same thing.

It’s exactly the same thing.

That’s why I don’t condemn what the insurrectionists did.

Yes, I know the protesters were goaded into entering the Capitol building. I hear you, babe. They were.

Nevertheless, they were breaking the law. Even though it was a set up, they were breaking the law, and they knew it.

So fucking what?

The American colonists who rebelled against the British were breaking the law also.

Newsflash! The British were the law in America in the early 1700s.

The American colonists were not rebelling against a foreign invading force.

The British were America.

The joint was called British America.

There was no United States of America at the time.

What the people who entered the Capitol building on January 6 did was the same thing that the American colonists did against the British: they were rebelling against the existing law and order.


If you are going to condemn the insurrectionists on January 6, then you must also stand against Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and, yes, even the scoundrel, Alexander Hamilton.

You can’t have it both ways.

If you are going to condemn the insurrectionists on January 6, then you must condemn the Boston Tea Party.

That’s what that little wussy bitch, Sean Hannity, doesn’t understand.

That’s what that other coward, Tucker Carlson, doesn’t understand.

They fall all over themselves in condemning the insurrectionionists on January 6.

We must renounce violence, they speak in grave, measured tones.

Is that a fact?

Did George Washington renounce violence, Sean Hannity?

Did Thomas Jefferson renounce violence, Tucker Carlson?

Did James Madison renounce violence?

Did Alexander Hamilton renounce violence?

Did Betsy Ross renounce violence?

No, they did not. So why do Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity renounce violence?

Wait a minute, here’s Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah Winfrey says in low measured tones that we must renounce violence. Her puppets nod approvingly.

Wait a minute, Oprah. Did Nat Turner renounce violence?

No, he did not. He led a slave rebellion. Would you prefer that he have renounced violence, as you recommend, and become a coward in the face of injustice?

I doubt it.

So then why do Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson renounce violence?

Could it be that they are, after all, corporate stooges who are more interested in their own pocketbooks.


They renounce violence and denounce the January 6 insurrectionists because they want to keep their television shows. They don’t want to risk anything for American freedom.

They are stone cold cowards hiding behind their mommy’s skirt.

They are betrayers of the American experiment.

I support the insurrectionists 100%.

I am glad they invaded the Capitol building.

They are not American villains. They are American heroes.

That fucking Congress and those fucking elites stole an election. Moreover they betrayed the American people.

They stole the election for Joe Biden just as they stole the election for George Bush 20 years prior. Ha ha, Democrats. Ha ha, Republicans.

Our leaders have been betraying the American people for the last 100 years.

We’ve had nonstop war in this country. We’ve had outsourcing of jobs.

We have inflation out the ass. We have homeless rapidly filling our cities. Drugs and crime abound. Instead of well paying jobs we have gambling, celebrity culture, cheap gossip, and tattoos.

Instead of quality education which encourages students to think critically and learn, we have standardized tests which encourages rote memory and blind obedience. Is it any wonder that children are stressed out? Teen suicides are on the rise. Preteen suicides are on the rise. School shootings are now the norm.

We have had nobody sticking up for us.

Why would I want to go against those people who had the guts to do something about it?

I’m not going to fall over myself trying to condemn them. I’m going to announce my support for them.

They are not the ones who should be in jail. The ones who should be in jail are the very representatives who betrayed American values and who sold their souls to Corporate America.

There, I said it. And I’m not apologizing.

Fuck you, Sean Hannity, you amazing coward.

Ditto to Tucker Carlson.

What Goes Around

In many respects a country is like a person living in a neighborhood.

Just as a person has to have good relations with other citizens in the neighborhood, so must a country.

If a person misbehaves and hurts other people, payback is sure to follow.

This is called karma.

Others might say that what goes around comes around.

Or, you reap what you sow.

This is good old fashion common sense.

Needless to say, everybody knows that it’s true.

These rules apply to a country as well.

If a country misbehaves and plays tricks on other people and other countries, blowback and retribution is sure to follow.

Never has a principle applied more than to the government of the United States of America.

Our CIA since its inception has played dirty tricks on the citizens of the world.

Retribution and compensation is sure to follow.

In fact, it already has happened.

Our problems with Iran can be traced back to 1953 when Dwight Eisenhower and Allen Dulles launched a mission to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran.

Similar hijinks and their attendant repercussions followed in Guatemala, Indonesia, Vietnam and, many other countries of the world.

The United States through the CIA has obsessively interfered with the politics of every single country on the globe in order to benefit the wealthy elite in the United States and Great Britain.

It is the people of the United States who shoulder the repercussions.

We lost 58,000 soldiers in Vietnam.

Many hundreds of thousands of soldiers were wounded physically and psychologically.

We suffer massive immigration on our southern border because our wealthy elites refused to give the people of Central America a stake in the game.

We lost millions of jobs in manufacturing to Indonesia and Southeast Asia because our elites brutalized those countries in order to create sweatshops.

Our country has become awash in cocaine and heroin courtesy of those Third World countries our elites have subjugated.

This is the price of Empire.

This is what regular people understand:

When you help others you help yourself.

This is what is not taught at Harvard:

When you hurt others you hurt yourself.

Either our leaders don’t get this or they do get this.

If they don’t get this they’re not qualified to lead.

If they do get this but refuse to heed its truth then they’re not qualified to lead.

A country is like a person.

Now imagine what would happen to you if you played tricks on your neighbors.

What would happen to you if you spied on your neighbors, slashed their car tires, and set out poisons in their yard to kill their pets?

You know what would happen. Sooner or later they would figure out that it was you that did it, and then they would get rid of you.

This is the position that our leaders are putting us in.

Increasingly these leaders are educated at Harvard and the Ivy League.

They need to go.

They are either too stupid or too evil to rule.

Conspiracies Do Happen

If everybody over the age of five has a birthday party on their birthday, on any particular day of the week, there will be 16,438,356 birthday parties. If 1% of those parties are surprise birthday parties and 90% of those surprise birthday parties are pulled off successfully, that will amount to 147,945.2 successful conspiracies pulled off every single day of the week into eternity.

Now, someone needs to tell the main stream media that conspiracies are possible, because they don’t believe conspiracies are possible except, of course, when they lie to us, or when it’s convenient for them to believe in them.

Lies and the Alpha Male Gorilla

There are two theories of history that I want to talk about. There is the social view of history, and then there is the monetary view of history.

The social view of history says that humanity changes in response to social events and social inequality. The monetary view of history says that humanity changes in response to the alpha male gorilla’s lust to fill his belly and get laid.

In our society today and in the societies of the past, the alpha male gorilla rules. We haven’t been able to escape the influence and rule of this particular creature.

Let’s cut to the chase.

The reason we went into Vietnam was because the alpha male gorilla wanted to dominate Southeast Asia so that he could fill his belly with rubber, latex, palm oil, and oil and gas deposits. There was also the prospect of slave labor in the future. These are your modern-day sweatshops that make lots of money for the pigs at Nike. In addition the alpha male gorilla was going to make a lot of money fighting the war necessary to secure the joint.

Alpha male gorillas love war. They love making money off jeeps, helicopters, bullets and all the rest of the stuff that wars require.

That’s the world we live in.

Of course, war is generally not palatable to the American people, principally because they have to risk their lives to fight it, and so there is therefore the need to lie.

This is what our leaders do.

And so they have constructed the social view of history to make you feel better about yourself.

Our leaders, who are owned and controlled by the alpha male gorillas, are shielding you from the brutality of the alpha male gorilla.

Thus, we didn’t go into Vietnam in order to satiate the alpha male gorilla’s lust. We went into Vietnam in order to save democracy.

Why, those citizens of Vietnam who have a standard of living one tenth of the average American, if left to their own devices, would one day grow strong enough to march down Main Street in America and kill you.

Those Vietnamese were then positioned in the media as savages by our leaders.

Worse, they believed in sharing wealth, which is of course anathema to the alpha male gorilla.

In reality, those average Vietnamese were no threat at all except in the sense that they wanted a stake in the American game.

They didn’t want to be oppressed anymore.

They didn’t want to be bullied anymore.

They had already suffered two hundred years of that from the French.

Needless to say, the alpha male gorilla couldn’t have cared less about weaker competitors, especially whiners who got in the way of profits.

And so the Vietnam war was fought to preserve decency and the “American Way” as have been all the other wars in humanity.

Instead of the American way, it was the British way, or the Roman way or, the Greek way or, the Egyptian way, or the Assyrian way.

The alpha male gorilla lied then as he does today.

Over the past several millennia, the alpha male gorilla has learned how to lie even better than before. He uses the media to foist upon you the social view of history.

The social view history talks a lot about movements, class warfare, poverty and such.

It’s a mask.

It’s a mask that exists to prevent you from seeing the truth.

What makes it worse is that there are professors in academia, and quasi-professors in the business world, who work for the alpha male gorilla, who appear regularly on television to sell you this false social view of history. They speak about the social forces that they believe are responsible for our wars and our predicaments.

But when they speak of these movements and forces, they speak vaguely and never fully track the social inequality back to the alpha male gorilla. Generally they substitute a convenient bogeyman as the culprit. In our time that bogeyman is Russia.

Russia represents evil; Russia represents communism; Russia represents barbarianism.

And it’s left at that. Nothing is explored further than that. That’s the endpoint. Russia is evil. That’s all you need to know.

As to why Russia is evil, forget about it.

Many times, a false flag is constructed by the alpha male gorilla to justify American intervention abroad.

The alpha make gorilla’s henchmen who dress up in suits, who speak well, never question the false flag. They legitimize the false flag by discussing it, but never in terms of whether it is valid or not. The validity of the false flag is never questioned.

No, what is discussed is America’s response to the false flag. Many of these henchmen, men like Zbigniew Brzezinski, would talk about the need for America to show force.

The world needs to see a show of force, Brzezinski used to say.

The validity of a false flag will never be discussed, not on national television. Any American who questions the validity of the false flag will be dismissed as a kook and a conspiracy nut.

This constant browbeating of the American people makes it tougher for us to solve our problem of eternal war.

The people who work for the alpha male gorilla have skills. They are glib. They dress up in nice suits to fool you. They know how to make jokes at the right time in order to dismiss critics who get too close to the truth. They have an amazing command of the esoteric yet irrelevant facts of history.

Having a command of esoteric facts is equated with intelligence and wisdom.

Many of these glib people come from the Ivy League.

When you attend the Ivy League, you are groomed to join the alpha make gorillas who are firmly in charge of the Empire. You don’t have to join the alpha male gorillas when you attend Harvard, but they hope that you do. And when you attend the Ivy League, they will introduce you to many alpha male gorillas. And you will be thrilled.

And you will lie.

You will lie because they will reward you if you do lie. You will be given speaking engagements. You will be given the opportunity to publish a book. You will be given access to television. You will have a first class ticket on the jet. People in first class get meals. People in first class get on the jet first, and they get off the jet first.

If you do a good enough job, you will be given a trip on Air Force One and perhaps an invitation to a State Dinner.

By the time you get to that level, you will have lied so much that you won’t even know you’re lying anymore.

Here’s the kicker.

Many of these people, people in power, believe that lying is okay if it serves to accomplish what they perceive to be a good thing.

So they are in favor of American leaders lying about the Lusitania, lying about Pearl Harbor, lying about the Gulf of Tonkin, lying about the World Trade Center, and lying about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Their prime example is Hitler and Nazi Germany. They will pound their their fists upon the table and say that Hitler had to be defeated. They will never tell you why, and they will never tell you that it was American corporations in conjunction with German corporations that supported and fueled Adolf Hitler. Nor will they tell you that they, the glib boys, represent knuckleheads who were handpicked by the knuckleheads at Versailles who created the conditions which enabled Adolf Hitler to rise.

These glib sleek-dressers subscribe to the notion that the American people are too stupid to comprehend honesty and the truth.

Now, you see, that kind of advice defies the lessons of honesty that my mother taught me.

Yes, it’s true, you can be honest to a fault, but in the long run honesty works. Even if it hurts you in the short run, honesty works.

Our alpha male gorillas and the henchmen that they hire do not believe that. They are liars and they embrace it.

And until we convince them that their doctrine is wrong, that it is not okay to lie, we will be lost – and engaged in perpetual war.

And that’s the way it is.

The Value of Honor

Right now, right at this moment, I am watching a ceremony on television that I watched as a child when I visited Washington, DC.

I am at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and soldiers are walking through the ceremony.

The soldiers are immaculately dressed, and they perform admirably.

It is a beautiful ceremony, but I must guard myself to not take the wrong lessons away from it.

Washington can seduce you when you visit there.

There are many memorials and monuments worth seeing.

They represent the history of our country, and it is a country that we can be proud of.

But these monuments also have the power to destroy.

Many of these monuments were built by Americans of a different generation who did not think the way we now think.

Our country has drifted far from its religious underpinnings.

When our antecedents built memorials, God, and all the good that God represents, was foremost in their minds.

The power of Caesar was not.

And yet, the white marble, the vastness of the buildings, their sheer weight and size, can so be easily misconstrued as to what these monuments represent.

Lincoln was a godly man who was not so much concerned as to whether God was on his side but whether he was on God’s side.

His memorial must convey that.

As must the others.

But we are not of Lincoln’s era.

Nor that of the Founding Fathers.

And so these monuments have taken on a different meaning.

They are now a catalogue of sites that Americans check off as part of an indoctrination program into America’s might and power.

Our news media forever crows about America as the most powerful nation on earth.

As do our leaders.

The President of the United States is regularly feted as the most powerful man on the face of the earth.

Did Lincoln shower himself with such illusions?

The monuments are now part of the supporting cast to justify our Presidents’ decisions on waging war around the globe.

The monuments sanctify us, purify us, justify us.

But that was not their intent when they were first constructed.

Monuments and memorials do not exist for war. Nor do they exist to create heroes.

Nor do they serve as a pretext for vengeance or domination.

They exist to deliver a message.

Those men who sacrificed their lives as in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are talking to us.

They want to tell us something.

They are asking us to dedicate our lives to forging a better world than the one that took their life.

As Lincoln said in the Gettysburg address:

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
