Soviet Weaponization of Psychiatry

Grove City College economics professor Mark Hendrickson writes an important piece on Soviet dissidents and the weaponization of psychiatry. He doesn’t get into this phenomenon, but on the college campuses and elsewhere in Amerika dissent and minority points of view are being suppressed, censored, shouted down, banished, and soon probably those unfortunate people may very well be put into psychiatric hospitals and said to be “mentally ill.”

The National Security State’s Useful Idiots in the Media

It really is sad to see professional journalists acting as government propagandists, i.e. de facto bureaucrats themselves, on behalf of an agenda at the expense of the truth. And we see that a lot now in Amerika especially to do with pathological Trump hatred. And I am not a Trump supporter, as many people here know.

Quite a few writers have now channeled Paul Craig Roberts with the moniker he has assigned to the mainstream Press as “presstitutes,” referring to mainstream news media chumps letting themselves be used by “anonymous intelligence sources” or “unnamed government officials” (or by people who are named) to advance an agenda at the expense of actual investigative reporting or being the “adversarial” Fourth Estate they are expected to be. That is, challenging assertions of bureaucrats and corporate flunkies, demanding answers, investigating the issues.

Instead, the news media have been plagued with activist do-gooders who have been brainwashed into believing that suppressing the truth about stories and merely repeating what bureaucrats tell them without question is “good journalism.”

But sadly, while some of the news media really are dishonest and intentionally promoting “fake news,” as I wrote about in my article on that a few months ago, I think that many of them are also just plain dumb, ignorant and/or gullible sheeple. It just never occurs to them to check what an “important source” in the bureaucracy tells them and that he might be lying to them. And as far as ignorance is concerned, like the population in general, many of them are just ignorant of history, science, economics, and did not have effective training in or encouragement of having critical thinking skills. And now with the “snowflake” generation, emotion is everything and thinking is suppressed.

Regarding the world-wide hatred for Donald Trump and the drooling drive to get rid of him, former CIA analyst and political activist Ray McGovern notes how investigative journalist Robert Parry may have had strokes and died because the “prostitution of the profession he loved so much” (journalism) may have been “too much; it’s just too much, too much.”

McGovern quotes Parry from a late article prior to Parry’s death:

More and more I would encounter policymakers, activists and, yes, journalists who cared less about a careful evaluation of the facts and logic and more about achieving a pre-ordained geopolitical result –and this loss of objective standards reached deeply into the most prestigious halls of American media. This perversion of principles –twisting information to fit a desired conclusion – became the modus vivendi of American politics and journalism. And those of us who insisted on defending the journalistic principles of skepticism and evenhandedness were increasingly shunned by our colleagues … Everything became ‘information warfare.’ …

Ironically, many ‘liberals’ who cut their teeth on skepticism about the Cold War and the bogus justifications for the Vietnam War now insist that we must all accept whatever the U.S. intelligence community feeds us, even if we’re told to accept the assertions on faith.

Sad. And Parry said that Trump hatred “had become like some invasion of the body snatchers,” a great analogy, in my view. However, in some cases there has been intentional dishonesty. But in other cases, there are members of the Press who are extremely infatuated with governmental powers, probably because they were raised to worship the government like a god, or like their mommy and daddy.

Besides my article in August on “fake news,” I also pointed out how what we have in the media is not the “liberal media” (although yes in the social agenda of many of them), but the government media. Not just journalism media but others in the academia and “intelligentsia” who promote and glorify the State and its god-like powers.

For example, Glenn Greenwald pointed to court historian Douglas Brinkley’s fawning interview of Barack Obama, and that “journalists joyously dance with top officials, swing on their tires, are creepily grateful when they’re sprayed in the face by their squirt guns, and play fun beach games with the very campaign officials they’re ostensibly covering.”

Yech. And as I further wrote in that earlier post, some examples provided by Greenwald have included Bob Schieffer kissing up to former NSA directer Michael Hayden, and Bob Shieffer hatchet-jobbing Ron Paul on foreign policy. And Scott Pelley’s “13 uninterrupted minutes of drooling propaganda” interview of Obama defense secretary Leon Panetta, how Wired manipulated chat logs to aid and abet the government’s persecution of Army whistleblower Bradley Manning, and Diane Sawyer and Brian Ross’s anti-Iran fear-mongering (things haven’t changed much).

Back to Trump. So besides Trump’s being rude and oftentimes insulting people like Rosie O’Donnell and Megyn Kelly, he has also criticized the national security state and elitists in Washington, especially during the 2016 campaign. And those apparatchiks there didn’t like that.

The real news has been that elements within the FBI and DOJ and their media sycophants including the Washington Post made up this “Trump-Russia collusions” and Trump-Russia “hacking and manipulating the 2016 election” in order to frame Donald Trump and to get rid of him. The same elements in the FBI and DOJ also falsely exonerated Hillary Clinton in her corruption with her email scandal and Clinton Foundation. And there is plenty of evidence to back that up, while there is no evidence to this day that proves “Trump-Russia collusions” in changing election results.

But the news media have been reporting otherwise, haven’t they? That is because they shill for the national security state, the same national security state that reads their emails, listens to their phone calls, S.W.A.T.-raids their homes or hacks their computers if their reporting goes against the grain of the apparatchiks of the national security state. Why do the media shill and propagandize? Because they are True Believers? Or because they are extremely gullible and naive and believe what FBI or CIA agents tell them?

But also because they are agenda driven. For example, the gun control agenda, in which they will only play sound bites of quotes by Elizabeth Warren or Nancy Pelosi (“How many more people have to die until we finally wake up?” “We need stricter gun legislation,” etc., etc.), but never or rarely quotes by people pointing out “Well, if someone there had been armed he or she could have taken out the shooter before those remaining 54 people could be killed,” “Gun-free zones attract the shooters because they know no one is armed who could shoot back,” “Criminals don’t obey laws against assault, murder or rape, why would they obey gun laws?” etc. You know, those rational points that the mainstream media don’t want people to hear because such points refute the irrationality of emotion-based anti-self-defense arguments.

And this anti-Trump obsession is not new. So far, the media in collusion with the national security state have still not taken down Donald Trump. There just is no evidence against Trump to prove what he has been accused of. And now people are pointing to Michael Cohen, a proven liar and sleazebag, as though his testimony is actually reliable or respectable.

But the national security state with the aid of news media colluders did take down a sitting President, and an awful statist at that, just as Trump is. It is very possible that what the mainstream media had been reporting on Watergate and the burglary is not the true story behind the story, and in fact it might very well be that Richard Nixon was set up by the national security state with that Watergate burglary and cover-up. CIA goons such as E. Howard Hunt participated in the burglary. Nixon had been trying to thaw relations with Russia and China, and the national security state didn’t like that one bit. And they had media helping to take down Nixon, including Bob Woodward.

And we see it now how Trump is trying to thaw relations with Russia, and the sycophants of the mainstream media huff and puff in their devotion to the national security state and its dependence on conflict, belligerence, and living high off the hog on taxpayer dollars.

Although, this mainstream media pathological hatred of Trump is like never before, apparently. It seems like mostly a personal thing. They just don’t like him. Well I don’t like him either, but I still think the truth is important.

The Brainwashed College Punk-Snowflakes

Walter Williams on college indoctrination. The youngins are basically against free speech, except for themselves. They are fragile “snowflakes” yet they are punks at the same time. Many of them shout down speakers they don’t like, and believe that actual physical violence against ideological opponents is acceptable. So, “freedom of speech for me but not for thee” narcissists is what many of the kids are now, along with many of their professors. And the colleges are turning them into stasi by encouraging them to turn someone in to college administration officials or even police for “hate speech,” i.e. dissenting points of views.

Merely Unhinged? Nope. Literally CRAZY? Yup.

The conservatives and nationalists are bad enough, with their anti-immigration and anti-free market ignorance and idiocy, and their mystical “American Exceptionalism” religion. But the people on the left are beyond “unhinged.” Many of the people on the left are literally crazy people now. It’s not just “irrational” and “hysterical,” but demented, deranged, loony-tunes.

Paul Craig Roberts says that the “presstitutes” have abandoned journalism for political activism. But that’s nothing new. Way back in 2009, I wrote, “today’s journalism schools are no longer teaching the students and future news writers and editors and anchors, reporters and producers to seek answers to who, what, why, when, where and how. Now, a career in journalism means being an activist, and a do-gooder. Use your role as a reporter to show what a good thing it is to have everything done by the government, and smear and crush anyone who criticizes that agenda.”

As Roberts made reference to, the “liberal” media are actually getting their fans and fellow Trump-haters to protest the firing of attorney general Jeff Sessions! Rachel Maddcow is leading the charge. They are organizing protests all over the country to defend the racist, fascist drug warrior Sessions, the anti-immigration police statist Sessions, and the thieving corrupt “civil asset forfeiture” crook Jeff Sessions! And they’re doing all this because they HATE Donald Trump! So, they’re beyond “unhinged,” “irrational” and “hysterical” now, these people are just plain NUTS! They are literally crazy people.

At least the anti-immigration idiots on the other side are just ignorant, but not particularly crazy. But the people on the left? And this is thanks in large part to their dumb teachers in the public schools, a.k.a. government schools, and their college professors who, without government tax-thefts and government hand-outs to the colleges, would not be working at colleges and universities. Can you image if the schools and higher education were all run on the free market? We would not have the beyond stupidity we have now. We have a society of psychologically unstable people, thanks to government-controlled education.

The schools and universities are literally brainwashing the young with utter nonsense, made-up mythologies and fanatical dogmas, such as “transgender” in which if someone who is a male but thinks he’s a female is a female and others must be compelled to agree with it. And now someone who is age 69 wants to be legally viewed as 49 because that’s how old he feels.

And the youngins are being brainwashed to obediently follow the acceptable, politically correct ideologies of race-obsession, gender-obsession, sexual perversions and the necessity of intolerance and silencing those who are not on the race-obsessed, gender-obsessed, sexual perversions bandwagon.

Not just intolerance, but the young now seem to be trained to act violently against others. On the college campuses these same people are silencing and shouting down and in some cases physically assaulting those with whom they disagree.

The antifa-like mob who charged Tucker Carlson’s home this week are another example of the craziness. Not only do they want Carlson and other conservatives censored, as has already been the case via Twitter, Facebook and Google, but the deranged lunatics are going to the victims’ homes, harassing their spouses and children, posting their addresses online, and those of the victims’ siblings as well.

As Thomas DiLorenzo wrote on LRC blog,

This of course is just the latest episode in the Bolshevik Left’s attack on free speech, taking their cue from the late German Marxist Herbert Marcuse (a “celebrated” academic after coming to America, naturally), who popularized the notion in commie/Leftist circles back in the ’60s that only “the oppressed” (i.e., fellow Marxists) deserve tolerance and free speech, and “the oppressors” (people like the evil Tucker Carlson, or Yours Truly) do not.

The tactic of appearing at peoples’ homes to terrorize their families is right out of the Obama “community organizing” handbook, inspired by Obama/Hillary Clinton idol and inspiration Saul Alinsky and originally used by the union goon movement, but now part and parcel of Democrat Party strategy in general.

So, going to people’s homes. Carlson’s wife was there and called 911. One of the deranged mobsters was actually attempting to ram the front door and did cause it to crack. Do you think that if “protesters” go to someone’s home and criminally threaten the people inside with an attempted break-in that maybe the ones inside should assume that their lives are really in danger, and should shoot at the marauding invaders? It may have to come to that.

George Wallace was of a similar mentality to those anti-freedom mobs, but in some ways Wallace had the “fighting back” attitude backwards. Wallace said, “when we get to be the president and some anarchist lies down in front of our car, it will be the last car he’ll ever lie down in front of,” and he probably was serious. Except he was the thug who was being protested. He wasn’t someone who just spoke his ignorant mind (like Carlson), but was a public official who wanted to impose his anti-freedom ideas onto others. In those times, protesters really were protesting government thuggery.

George Wallace actually was a “racist.” As governor and Presidential candidate he wanted to have a governmentally-imposed segregated society, at the expense of private property and freedom of association, and including not allowing black students to enroll in public, taxpayer-funded schools and universities. But in the 1960s and ’70s did the protesters go to George Wallace’s home and try to break into his front door? Nope. Although he was shot and paralyzed by a wacko loony-tunes, not particularly by someone who expressed opinions about racism or politics.

But now, the “anti-racists” are just brainwashed with race-obsession ideology. Their protests are now irrational and fanatical. They are going to the home of a TV news host and threatening violence? He’s not even a government official.

And while “protesters” accuse Tucker Carlson of being a “Nazi,” a “racist” and a “hater,” he is the one who actually has political opponents, minorities and controversial figures on his TV show and interviews them to hear what they have to say. But the fanatical crazies on the left only want to SILENCE! their opponents. (Who’s the real “Nazi” now, hmmm?)

And many of these crazy, unhinged hysterical fanatics really believe that Donald Trump is also a “racist,” and a “Nazi,” because they don’t even know what those words really mean, or what Donald Trump’s actual views are, because they don’t read, or pay attention to the news. They are just hysterical.

The hysterical loony-tunes don’t know that Trump supports transgender bathroom laws, affirmative action laws, and favors single payer healthcare and “taxing the rich”  because he himself is an ignoramus just as they are. And you would think that these people on the left would support Trump and his love of eminent domain (government theft of private property), given how much they love the government being empowered to steal private property from others. But I digress.

Anyway, so these people on the left are not only very ignorant and irrational now, but also very dangerous and threatening. They do not seem to understand that their right to free speech (but not violence) is protected, but they also have to respect other people’s right to free speech.

Violence should never be tolerated. Can you imagine all the marches and protests that Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. had during the 1960s, if all those people went to the homes of “racists” (who actually were racists at the time, like George Wallace) and threatened them, such as the politicians who were passing Jim Crow-type of laws, and so on?

But now with so many of the young people being trained to act hysterically and violently by irrational high school teachers, college professors, news media activists and social justice warriors, they go after TV news people like Tucker Carlson, but they don’t criticize or protest the CIA, Pentacon, the DEA and IRS (i.e. actual criminals working within government violence), and they are protesting the firing of Jeff Sessions, the very racist government thug they should WANT to be fired! Nutsos!

The Package Bombs Sent to Democrats: Not a False Flag?

Regarding the package bombs apparently being mailed to the Clintons and the Obamas’ homes, to George Soros and CNN, Thomas DiLorenzo wrote yesterday on the LewRockwell.com blog:

Another Non-Bomb “Bomb” Discovered . . .

. . . near a business owned by yet another unhinged, hysterically Trump-hating Democrat, this time Robert DeNiro in NYC. I note that the LMS (Lying Media Scum) are now calling these things “suspicious packages.” Surely the people who fabricated the lie that a Supreme Court nominee once ran a drug/gang-rape ring when he was 16 would not stoop to a stunt this low, would they?

UPDATE: This Just In: LMS now reporting another “suspicious package” near the residence of Joe Biden. The Trump-hating FBI is on the scene to investigate and get to the bottom of this. (Unless of course it was the same Trump-hating FBI, the people who concocted the “Russia investigation,” who planted the “suspicious packages” in the first place). Will the FBI shoot and kill a “loner” who they claim to be the culprit with no witnesses in another alleged “confrontation”? Will they then tell us that his computer showed that he frequented “right-wing Web sites”? Will they immediately bury him at sea, bin Laden style?

And now this morning, CNBC reports that a 56-year-old suspect has been arrested.

Investigators were examining a white van plastered with stickers carrying Trump’s name and the presidential seal, according to MSNBC. The network said authorities were looking at “right-wing paraphernalia” found at the scene.

But as I was writing yesterday, who would actually benefit from fake bomb-packages being sent to Democrats just weeks before a big election? WHY would a Trump supporter send those kinds of things to Democrats just weeks or days before a big election? Would Trump and the Republicans actually benefit from such a dumb act? And anyway, we already know that Trump-hating bureaucrats and former bureaucrats with the FBI, DOJ, and CIA have provided enough evidence to show that not only did Trump not “collude with Russians,” and that no Russians (or anyone) “hacked the election,” but that those bureaucrats criminally abused their spying authorities to spy on the Trump campaign to try to dig up dirt on Trump as well as to try to frame Trump in a non-existent “collusions with Russia” or “hacking the election” scheme.

So as I was writing yesterday, false flag much? So, a lunatic apparently loves Trump and is intelligent enough to put some kind of devices together to make it look like they could explode, but is so dumb as to not see that Trump or Republicans could not possibly benefit from such a stunt? Sorry, this one doesn’t pass the smell test, if you ask me.

Speaking of false flags, Washington’s Blog had this great article with example after example of governments implementing false flag ops, especially our beloved U.S. government in Washington, and really for the sake of justifying ever-increasing tax-funded military budgets, national security budgets and bureaucracies, and so forth. The parasites in Washington will always grow in their power and their fiefdoms, and the police state they love to tyrannize their own people with. Sick.

Washington’s Blog notes how the mainstream media (i.e. government media) will not report on any of these false flag matters. They are mostly mouthpieces for the Bureaucracy. Many of them are extremely gullible and naive and they will believe anything that bureaucrats tell them, without any questioning or investigating.

Many of the media are also brainwashed with the political correctness nonsense of today that they are as obsessed with race and gender as the college professors and snowflake students. With today’s news media, it’s not nearly the case in getting actual thorough news reporting out to their readers and viewers.

In fact, race-obsession political correctness is so important at the aforementioned NBC, they are fine with Megyn Kelly leaving NBC with the remainder of her $69 million contract rather than allowing her to “get away with” making some innocent comment about wearing blackface on Halloween. But reporting on false flags or government corruption? (Only if they’re Republicans, of course. And the dishonest media report on “right-wing” violence but rarely left-wing violence. Did you see this huge list of violent attacks or threats against Republicans just in the past few months?)

Anyway, regarding the lack of reporting on false flags, ABC News did report on Operations Northwoods and Mongooose, after those false flag ops or proposals were de-classified.

As Bradley Manning has stated, and he’s correct about this, everything should be de-classified. The government doesn’t “own” any of the information it keeps. ALL government information belongs to the public, and is in the “public domain.”

As Judge Andrew Napolitano wrote, “In the clash between government secrecy and public transparency, the Framers placed a value judgment in the First Amendment . . . An informed public is more likely to make better decisions than an ignorant one…In a free society, knowledge is superior to ignorance. Politicians who would criminalize publishing the truth should be voted out of office.”

Those who say, “Well releasing ‘classified’ information to the public compromises the security of military personnel overseas” are ignorant, authoritarian sheeple who believe the propaganda that gubmint tells them, as repeated word-for-word by the stenographers in the mainstream media (i.e. government media). The actual truth that was revealed at Manning’s kangaroo trial was that not one person was killed, harmed or threatened by Manning’s release of documents to WikiLeaks.

The government intentionally over-classifies information anyway, to hide its own criminality, its incompetence, and its corruption.

Anyway, even if it might be the case that an actual deranged moron in Florida who loves Trump and hates Democrats sent those fake bombs to Democrats, the case is still hard to figure out. It’s just not believable to me, with all the facts of the case thus far.

More Cognitive Dissonance with Republicans and Talk Radio Ditto-Heads

In last night’s scream fest brawl debate between Elizabeth Warren and her Republican challenger Geoff Diehl (that they wouldn’t let Independent candidate Shiva Ayyadurai participate in), once again the Rethug Diehl shows more cognitive dissonance.

According to the Boston Glob, “The debate also highlighted the stark differences between the two candidates on a range of issues, including… the Republican-passed tax cuts (Warren called them a giveaway to billionaires and giant corporations, while Diehl defended them as a boon to the Massachusetts economy)…”

But at one point, according to the Globe,

During a testy debate on taxes, Warren and Diehl talked over each other several times, with Warren charging that Republicans were targeting Social Security to balance the red ink caused by the Republican-backed tax cuts. Diehl said that was a suggestion by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

“I am not a Mitch McConnell Republican,” Diehl said. “I am a Massachusetts Republican that has worked with Democrats and Republicans.”

Warren quickly cut in. “Sorry, so when was it exactly that you called out Mitch McConnell on this and said you were opposed to a trillion-and-a-half dollars in tax cuts for billionaires?”

“I think I’m doing it right now,” Diehl shot back, talking over the Cambridge Democrat. “I think I’m doing it right now, Senator Warren.”

So, when Diehl says, “I am not a Mitch McConnell Republican … I am a Massachusetts Republican that has worked with Democrats and Republicans,” I think he means he’s a Republicrat or a Demopublican. (Or perhaps he’s a Rethuglicrat, who knows.)

And when Warren asks when Diehl “called out Mitch McConnell on this and said you were opposed to a trillion-and-a-half dollars in tax cuts for billionaires?” Diehl’s response is, “I think I’m doing it right now,” and he repeats that so we know he is against tax cuts, “I think I’m doing it right now, Senator Warren.”

So, he’s either for the tax cuts as the article on the debate pointed out, or he’s against the tax cuts. Another Romney.

And more cognitive dissonance from radio ditto-heads as well. Yesterday on Sean Hannity’s radio show, Hannity was pointing out polls and criticizing the Indiana Libertarian Party candidate for U.S. Senate, Lucy Brenton, for allegedly taking votes away from Hannity’s favored Rethuglican challenger, Mike Braun, in their challenge against incumbent Democretin Joe Donnelly. (The two Establishment party candidates included Libertarian Lucy in the debate, by the way.)

Awww, poor Hannity, he doesn’t like third party challenges, just like the fascists in Massachusetts who won’t let the Independent candidate Shiva Ayyadurai participate in the debates between Liz Warren and Geoff Diehl. Just another sign that, like the other hypocrite talk radio blabbermouths, Hannity is just another shill for the Establishment. We can’t have third parties elbowing their way in. God forbid.

Republican challengers like Braun and Diehl want to get a seat at the table, but what we need is someone who will get into Washington and knock the table over! I think that Trump was in some way one of those people — and previously, Ron Paul tried to be.

And also, I looked online at Indiana Libertarian Party candidate Lucy Benton‘s views and she’s very good on most issues. However, her stand on “illegal immigration” is the only one that’s not good, a bit mealy-mouthed, not particularly “libertarian.” She is concerned about immigrants getting here to get on welfare. The libertarian answer, and the real moral and practical answer, is to completely abolish the entire welfare state system, especially the racket that is run out of Washington. “Conservatives” never support that. They are as much welfare statists as the Democrats.
