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.

Hello!!!

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.

Yes.

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.

Sincerely,

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.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley

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.

Sincerely,

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.

Baseball Belongs to You

So what do you think about the tomahawk chop in Atlanta?

Rob Manfred, the Commissioner of Baseball has weighed in on this issue.

Danger, Will Robinson.

Baseball belongs to you.

What do you think?

Is the tomahawk chop insulting to Native Americans? Has there ever been one Native American who has fallen into a state of anxiety and depression because the citizens of Atlanta were engaging in the tomahawk chop?

Have any Native Americans been admitted to your local behavioral center center with a diagnosis of logo-gesture anxiety?

It’s difficult for me to believe that a Native American would be any more aggrieved by the tomahawk chop then I would be if people engaged in a forward sword thrust which my ancestors most certainly engaged in when killing each other.

There is no issue.

It’s a bogus issue brought up by the elites to socially reengineer society, to take all the fun out of your life, to make you heel to their command.

They snap their fingers. and you bark.

They couldn’t give two flips about Native Americans. And they proved it when they broke every treaty with them and slaughtered them.

Remember, the people who are in power today were put in power by the people who were put in power by the people who were put in power by the people were put in power back in the day.

They are all cut out of the same cloth from one generation to the next.

If you’ll notice, nobody said a damn word about Minnesota fans dressing up with Viking helmets.

During the Cowboys game today against Minnesota, there was no outrage at all when a sports personality blew that giant cattle horn to begin the game.

Isn’t that disrespectful to current day Norwegians and Swedes?

You see, our elites pick and choose what they want to be outraged about.

How about the Boston Celtics?

Why aren’t we getting rid of their name?

What’s the difference between a Celtic and an Indian?

They both came out of the woods.

In fact, we all came out of the woods if you go back far enough.

Well, you see, when you start talking about the Boston Celtics, why then you’re getting a little bit too close to the power center where the elites live.

Now, those elites who live in Cambridge, they love their Celtics. They aren’t going to give up their name. Nor their leprechaun.

That’s their name. That’s their logo. It’s your name that’s the offensive one. It’s your logo that is punishing people.

That’s the game they play.

When they aren’t ruining sports, when they aren’t making your life miserable, when they aren’t telling you what to eat and what words may be spoken, they are barking down the house in which you live.

Where you live is urban sprawl that is desecrating the environment.

Where they live has always been there.

From the beginning of time.

Your house destroyed what was once a lovely meadow.

Their house has always been there.

Except when it wasn’t there.

In fact, their house is only there because those noble elites who talk down to you slaughtered the Pequot Indians in the early 1600s.

But that’s okay because that happened then. And they have conveniently moved their transgressions into a part of the brain that they refuse to acknowledge.

What’s important is what’s going on now. And what’s going on now is that the citizens of Atlanta are demeaning Indians by engaging in a tomahawk chop.

Forget about the stolen lands. Forget about the broken treaties. Forget about the induced genocide by cooping Indians up on reservations.

What’s important is the tomahawk chop.

Harvard graduate, Rob Manfred, the Commissioner of Baseball says he supports the citizens of Atlanta.

I don’t believe that for a second.

Rob Manfred is an agent of the empire who in time will destroy baseball. He will walk down every avenue he can to inject politics into sports.

He takes his orders from the elites. If he is conciliating, it is only because he fears the immense power of the people who want to maintain their traditions and who have greater common sense than he does.

Still, he is a dangerous man.

By even discussing the issue, he puts the issue on the front burner.

Axiom: It doesn’t belong there at all.

As a matter fact, Rob Manfred has no authority at all to dictate anything in baseball.

Like his Ivy League predecessors, he’s a court jester, a village idiot, a babbling dunce.

It’s your sport, not his.

It doesn’t belong to him. It doesn’t belong to Bart Giamatti. It doesn’t belong to Bowie Kuhn. It doesn’t belong to Harvard University. It doesn’t belong to the Ivy League.

It’s your sport.

Baseball belongs to you.

Kensington Avenue

Have you seen the videos on YouTube of Kensington Avenue in Philadelphia?

I was truly shocked.

It’s something out of a science-fiction movie.

No matter how bad you thought the homeless situation was in the United States, Kensington Avenue is far worse.

Of course, I always knew that it was a challenged area.

Even when I was in my late teens and took the train down to Center City Philadelphia, I could see the poverty.

But Kensington Avenue is on a whole new level today.

I think I get it now. I think I understand the plan that our elites have for us.

In the days when I was a boy people who were mentally challenged were given an opportunity to live a safe and structured life within a mental institution.

That option exists to a far lesser degree.

Our elites have decided instead to construct open air mental hospitals that stretch for miles.

They just didn’t tell us they were going to do that.

I suppose the elites can’t figure out any way to make money off the incarceration of the mentally challenged.

Yes, it must be that because their rip-off insurance companies don’t want to pay for outpatient psychological services either.

So they have allowed the mentally challenged to live a homeless life on the streets of Philadelphia and nearly every other city of United States.

Now, you would think our elites would jump at the chance to make money off the mentally ill just as they’ve managed to make money by warehousing criminals.

But they have decided instead that they serve little purpose.

So they have created a self-cleaning mechanism for eliminating them from society.

Out on the streets, the mentally ill are sure to die a quicker death.

Somehow this must suit the economic interests of the elites as almost nothing comes to pass in our society today unless a corporation can make some money off it.

If there are no profits to be made, well, that’s tough luck, Charlie.

So why is it that our elites don’t invest in mental hospitals? Don’t corporations stand to make a bundle by warehousing them?

Well, they could make a few bucks, but there’s probably more bucks involved in destroying an entire community.

Having the mentally ill and homeless out on the streets increases the need for more police and more public services.

Plus, having the homeless purchase drugs is good money.

A little prostitution wouldn’t hurt either.

It contributes to the apocalyptic effect that keeps people on edge, in fear and more likely to ask the government to fix it.

A healthy community means less crime. Less crime means less prisoners for the corporate prison racket. Less crime means less money for the welfare plantation racket.

Thus the open air mental hospitals that exist on Kensington Avenue and in nearly every other city in United States.

Not giving proper care to the mentally ill is good for Corporate America.

That’s what counts in America.

The Big Slide

How did the big slide in America occur?

It occurred before our eyes without us even knowing it.

And we did it to ourselves. It wasn’t done without our help.

It began of course with the generation preceding World War II. This would be the generation of my grandfather, the World War I generation.

They truly lived in the America that was, the America that is currently referred to as racist and bigoted.

They would have no ability to survive in our world today. They would not understand it at all.

It was about this time – in the early 1920s – that our elites got together and began the grand transformation of America into a neo-feudalist state modeled on the feudalist state of old.

Our elites of course never liked the American experiment.

The American experiment gave regular people a window.

It wasn’t just a window for people to excel and live a good life; it was a window of revelation demonstrating to regular people that they were just as good as the elites.

The elites viewed this revelation as dangerous.

What really galled the elites was that the American experiment was working. Not only was America prospering, it was prospering above and beyond the old system of Europe.

This is why America became a beacon to the world. This is why people came to America.

To combat this, European nobility, particularly British nobility, began their attempt to rope America back into the feudalist mindset of thinking.

It was always the dream of Cecil Rhodes to get America back into the fold.

He was enabled in his quest by his newly enriched friends, the social climbing robber barons, and of course, his friends at Harvard University.

Harvard University has never been a friend of the American experiment.

From day one, Harvard has worked against average Americans and the idea that regular people are just as important as so-called elite people.

Harvard was more than willing to help Cecil Rhodes corral Americans back into the royalist fold.

Harvard embraced the Rhodes scholarship. Harvard embraces the Rhodes Scholarship today. When Harvard had its 350th anniversary, who did Derek Bok, the then president of Harvard, invite as a vital speaker to his ceremony? None other than Prince Charles.

Harvard is an elitist institution.

Its grandiose graduation ceremony where the wealthy elite congratulate themselves in opulence while homelessness (that Harvard engendered) abounds is a national embarrassment.

Harvard leads the Ivy League. It is the oldest school in the nation. It is older than our Constitution.

The Ivy League exists to train the officers of Corporate America.

Corporate America runs America and Harvard controls Corporate America.

Corporate America is comprised of not just corporations, but foundations, associations, thank tanks, major media, sports leagues, major entertainment, and of course the government.

It is that Corporate America fueled by Harvard University and the Ivy League that has engineered the demise of America.

As I said, they did it before our eyes. And with our help.

They did it through a series of crises that they created.

They created WWI, they created the Great Depression, they created World War II.

They have created every debacle since then.

These crises gave them the opportunity to further increase the power of the federal government, to take control of America’s businesses, to foment nonstop war abroad, to exploit other peoples, to dumb down the population, to weaken the population through drugs, gambling, cheap gossip and crummy celebrity culture.

They did it slowly and they did it in a very insidious manner.

Who would object? After all the leaders were solving a crisis.

To keep any skeptics at bay, their attempts at solving these crises were always wrapped within a cocoon of lies.

Subtle conments like Franklin Roosevelt being a traitor to his class was a pervasive lie intended to convince Americans that the government was on their side.

Of course, Franklin Roosevelt was not a traitor to his class at all. Franklin Roosevelt expanded the government through the Great Depression and World War II and in so doing transformed a small racket, the government, into a humongous racket from which his friends profited enormously.

His successors, particularly Dwight Eisenhower, fought a Cold War, created by the elites, engineered by the elites, to give us the current military industrial complex. That Dwight Eisenhower would warn us about the military industrial complex is a joke. Dwight Eisenhower was the military industrial complex.

How did our elites prosecute the Cold War?

First by creating a bogus bogeymen of communist domination, a force that had to be defeated.

Second, capitalist imperialism through exploitation and domination of other peoples. These efforts principally engineered by Allen Dulles with the full backing of Dwight Eisenhower, were anti-Christian and antithetical to the principles of the Founding Fathers.

The big lie was that Dwight Eisenhower was our friend. The big lie was Dwight Eisenhower himself.

Here was Dwight Eisenhower, a war hero, who won a war, World War II, that our elites were responsible for in the first place, who was now continuing that war against the evil Soviet Union.

The sad truth is that it was the United States that was the aggressive nation around the world.

It is so today.

All our major problems that we face today, the immigration from Central America, the enmity with Iran, the enmity with Venezuela can be laid at the feet of Dwight Eisenhower, our friend.

Ike overthrew Mosaddegh in Iran in 1953. His crime? He nationalized the British oil fields to give his people opportunities.

Ike overthrew Arbenz in Guatemala in 1954. His crime? He wanted to take a small amount of uncultivated land and give it to the peasants.

Ike played tricks and games with the Indonesians in the 1950s because Sukarno wanted to take a third way between capitalism and communism. Ike set the table. Finally in the mid 60s Sukarno was overthrown so that the United States could steal the assets of Indonesia for greedy pigs like Forbes Wilson of Freeport Sulphur. Our CIA helped Suharto, Sukarno’s replacement and our thug, kill 1 million of his opponents. CIA officers who helped Suharto are not ashamed of their actions.

The goal of our leaders has never been to help the people of the world or the people of the United States; it’s always been about exploitation for the purposes of profit making.

We didn’t go into Vietnam in order to help the people of Southeast Asia. We went into Vietnam in order to establish a presence, a beach head, in order to control the vital resources that the region possessed.

Of course, we already had the Philippines as a base from which to stage our operations, but Vietnam would give us a beach head on the mainland.

There were enormous assets in minerals, oil, and agriculture to be controlled. Latex, rubber, oil, gold and copper. The largest copper and gold mines were known to be in New Guinea.

It was vital that the United States control the region. This is how it was sold to my parents and grandparents. The thinking was that what was good for Corporate America was good for the citizens of the United States. That was another lie.

If we could save Vietnam, we could prevent the whole region from going communist. It was called the Domino Theory.

The problem with that theory is that it wasn’t necessarily so. The people there weren’t so much communist as they were nationalist. They wanted to control their own destiny. They wanted a piece of the pie. They didn’t want to be exploited.

Had we given them a stake in the game, we would have avoided the problems that we face today.

Of course, that was never the game plan of Allen Dulles and Dwight Eisenhower. Their goal was exploitation and domination. Why would we think otherwise? Dwight Eisenhower was Douglas MacArthur’s right hand man in the Philippines. It was plain enough for him to see that United States was never going to give Filipinos a stake in the game.

And so our elites moved in. They used every evil and malignant trick in the book to get their way. One of their favorite stratagems was to buy a dictator with money, have him spread the money to his cronies who would then control the population.

The United States owned legions of them around the globe. Machado, Batista, Trujillo, Baby Doc, Somoza, the Shah, Marcos, the list goes on and on.

This worked for a while until the people realized that they were being exploited.

Some rebelled, others never bought in from the get go.

One rebellion resulted in the Vietnam war.

Ike set the table there too.

The Vietnam war was tremendously damaging to the psyche of the United States and its people.

It produced a cynicism and distrust of our leaders which was well deserved.

It was more clear to the people that our leaders did not have their best interest at heart.

Concomitantly Americans began turning toward drugs. Baby boomers were young and willing to experiment. Disillusioned veterans were also willing to experiment. This was aided and abetted by our Central Intelligence Agency which helped import drugs into the United States. Yes, that’s right, our CIA made a deal with the drug lords in Southeast Asia to import drugs into the United States in exchange for them helping us in Vietnam.

Unfortunately, for the American people the weaker you are, the less able you are to fight back.

It didn’t take too long before the United States corporations began outsourcing jobs to these newly exploited nations.

What a winner for the elites. They now owned many servile countries around the globe to which they could export US labor.

They could not only break the backs of labor unions and the people of the United States of America, they could make a windfall of profits by paying people in Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines, not to mention Central America peanuts for jobs that used to provide living wages for United States citizens.

As a result, many people in the United States lost their well paying jobs. This occurred across all sectors of industry in the United States.

A line worker at GM in 1970 could make about $75,000 per year in today’s money without a college education. A current Starbucks barista can make $30,000 a year if they’re lucky.

This produced a general lowering of standards for the American family. When the family is weakened financially, the family is weakened spiritually. This then produces social ills such as crime, drug use, drug abuse, spousal abuse, child abuse, psychological turmoil and a lower level of education

These changes occurred slowly before our eyes.

To combat this, our government did not stop outsourcing of jobs, nor did it make any serious attempt to curtail the drug trade. Those were money makers for the elites.

Our government gave us Band-Aids. They gave us gambling. They gave us cheap gossip. They gave us celebrity culture.

If a patient is in pain, a good doctor tries to find the root cause and fix that. A good doctor doesn’t give morphine and walk away.

Our government gave us morphine.

In addition to these worthless Band-Aids, the government permitted corporations to continue their ravaging of the American workplace.

Chief executive officers and their henchmen were permitted to control the board room so as to enrich themselves wildly beyond anyone’s dream as far as compensation packages were concerned. Not only did they give themselves exorbitant salaries and golden parachutes, they also awarded themselves millions of shares of stock. In essence, they raped the shareholder.

This continues to this day.

The focus then became to get rich,and most of the baby boomers being young got suckered into this movement.

The elites took advantage of our greed and desire to be rich in order to fuck the American republic.

We did it to ourselves.

We were blind.

This is why Oliver Stone made the movie Wall Street. He wanted to demonstrate the sickness in American society, what was wrong with American society.

We all watched Wall Street and thought it was a great movie, but it was a movie. We were busy making money and dreaming of getting rich, so we continued along our merry way.

As we moved through the 1980s and into the 90s we were seduced by Ronald Reagan, his successors and the concept of free trade. We became even more anti-communist. We fully bought into the evil empire that was Russia.

We didn’t see outsourcing of jobs as a bad thing. It was all sold under the lie of free trade. Free trade was looked at as anti-communist and anti-elitist, not for what it was, free imperialism.

Plus – the media controlled by the elites had thoroughly demonized the labor unions as corrupt.

We didn’t see the good in the Teamsters, only the bad.

We wanted the Teamsters gone.

Free Trade was embraced.

We didn’t see the damage that free trade was doing to the United States.

It was only when political correctness came into being under Bill Clinton‘s administration that we first began to get an idea that we had been had.

One could start to see where the elites were heading with all this.

Never to be out done the elites cleverly distracted us with the World Trade Center bombing. Once again we got roped into believing that yet another enemy of America was attacking us.

We responded by going whole hog into the Middle East. We never asked any questions. It was clear that these Muslims were attacking us because they didn’t like our way of life. We never asked what they would know about our way of life. We just bought the lie.

Many Americans buy into this lie today.

Am I losing you?

We now live in an Orwellian world. The elites lie with impunity. They rig elections openly.

The apotheosis of their lying nature finds itself in the coronavirus pandemic. From the beginning the elites have lied to us every step of the way.

Legitimate criticisms are censored. Flat out lies are told.

The COVID-19 crisis is being used to reengineer society, but not for the betterment of man, but for the economic benefits of the rich.

Our elites, our crony capitalists, hide behind Karl Marx and use him as a shield.

They have no desire for a grassroots socialism.

Oh, no, what they are after is a much bigger game – fascism.

Welcome to the New World Order.

We did it to ourselves.

Sincerely,
