The “Social Justice” Mob in Amerika

You probably remember the case of Michelle Carter, the young high school student who through phone calls and texts urged her boyfriend to kill himself, which he did. She was convicted of involuntary manslaughter based on her words alone. She was a mean, nasty girl, and for that she was convicted of manslaughter. Carter then appealed to the Massachusetts Supreme Court, which upheld the conviction! So now she appealing to the U.S. Supremes.

Hmm. As I pointed out in this post, if someone’s meanness and verbal “bullying” can be made criminally responsible for someone else’s suicidal death, then how about other forms of speech? Such as a  bitter campaign speech by a candidate who calls others terrible names, or a “hateful rant” on a blog or Facebook, something a possibly “vulnerable” person reacted to by then committing suicide?

But now there is a new case, and in Massachusetts no less, of a terrible, nasty b*tch girlfriend urging her boyfriend to commit suicide, which he did. They were both Boston College students. Like the Michelle Carter case, this young “girlfriend” sent the boyfriend tens of thousands of texts, such as “go kill yourself,” etc. After he killed himself by jumping off a parking garage just hours before he was to graduate last May, the girlfriend then fled to her home country of South Korea.

In the Michelle Carter case, the two were taking antidepressants. Dr. Peter Breggin had testified during the trial regarding the effects of antidepressants. He has a whole resource page on just that case with several links to his articles on that. And I have written about the psychiatric drugs and their being contributors to worsening depression, suicide, aggression and violence, more recently on the Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade suicides.

So far we haven’t heard whether the two Boston College students in this new case had been taking any psychiatric drugs. But he had severe depression, supposedly. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was taking antidepressants and, if so, that the drugs worsened his depression, as Dr. Peter Breggin has testified and written about extensively. But it may not be the case, so we’ll see.

In any event, the subject of psychiatric drugs is not what I’m writing about here. This post is more about speech, and freedom of speech.

In the case of the two Boston College students, the girlfriend in the new case, Inyoung You, is being charged with involuntary manslaughter. Just for being a verbally mean b*tch. But being a verbally mean b*tch isn’t a crime. So I think there is something else going here with the Suffolk County, Massachusetts DA Rachael Rollins.

DA Rachael Rollins is one of those “social justice” prosecutors who will selectively prosecute or not prosecute someone by taking the suspect’s socioeconomic background (or race) into account. She states: “If the person presents with mental health issues, substance use disorder, homelessness, or poverty, we’re going to pause just for a moment to see who is this person in front of us … Before branding someone with a criminal record, we just want to pause if they have some of those characteristics.”

Among the suspects she has chosen not to prosecute so far: 11 assault or assault and battery charges. One suspect was accused of punching his wife in the face. In another case, a lady jogger was assaulted and suffered a fractured skull and traumatic brain injury.

And so I’m wondering if the charging of a verbally mean girlfriend with involuntary manslaughter, but not charging physically violent criminals, is a part of a subtle, longer-range scheme to go after speech, not as much “mean, bullying texts” but as a stepping stone to eventually criminalize so-called “hate speech.” We already know the activists want to do this. They already have been doing this.

Of course, “hate speech” is subjective. The leftist mob will not want to go after me if I criticize nationalism, flag-worship, organized religion and the military. (But I’m sure the Archie Bunkers out there would go after me for such “hate speech,” no?)

No, the “hate speech” will be determined by the “social justice” crowd, and by law, anything considered to be “racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic,” anti-LGBTQ+++, but not anti-Christian, or anti-conservative, or hatefulness toward non-irrational leftists. Do you know what I mean?

So, will we be more like Germany, in which the modern “hate speech” gestapo invades people’s homes and steals their property, accusing them of making “threats” and “inciting violence” merely for expressing unpopular views such as about LGBT people?

And now, in a recent survey of millennials, according to Reason, most of the young people support censorship of “hate speech” that is “hurtful or offensive,” and support censorship “in universities or on social media” as well as legal crackdowns on news outlets who publish or broadcast “biased, inflammatory, or false” information.

But thanks to the moonstream media now, actual evidence-backed truthful information is now considered to be “false” information or, as the brainwashed sheeple like to say, “debunked conspiracy theories,” simply because its sources are from alternative media, such as about Ukrainians meddling in the 2016 election.

If the millennials had their way, they would censor that Red State article, and the Politico and New York Times articles linked there, so that the general public would still not know the truth about Ukraine. The ignorant activists would censor former CIA official Ray McGovern and former NSA official William Binney’s articles that went into their own forensic work regarding the DNC computers and McGovern and Binney’s debunking the “Russian hacking” conspiracy theory promulgated by the entire moonstream media and all the little twitterbots and Fakebook snowflakes on the Internet.

So are we looking at a future in which the truth is labeled “false” and censored while the real fake news is presented as “truth” when it’s really just a bunch of propaganda?

First there were the crazies including Marxine Waters telling people to stalk conservatives at restaurants and malls and harass them. And now, the obsession by the Trump haters to remove him from the White House has gone from bad to worse, from the Russia-Mueller crusade to the current impeachment craze.

We have a lying, Soviet apparatchik-wannabe Adam Schiffty who lies and makes up stuff, he runs committee hearing by not allowing the Republicans to ask witnesses questions and he is literally coaching the witness in testimony!

“Witness tampering” much, Shiffty?

Outside of politics in Warshington, on the “social justice” front, we now have speech codes, college campus diversity conferences and implicit bias training, requirements on college campuses to know “emotional risks” of events.

So while the “social justice” activists have been promoting silencing those with a point of view that’s different from theirs or not accepting of transgender activism, at the same time the “social justice” activists are promoting actual physical violence against innocent people as long as the violence is committed by allegedly members of “oppressed” or discriminated-against groups and against anyone who is targeted as “racist,” “nazi,” “white supremacist,” etc., sans any due process, even if the angry mob knows nothing about their victim.

Gee, let’s elect more “social justice” activists to District Attorney or state attorneys general, and to other legally powerful offices to create such an Orwellian dystopian society. You bet.

This is truly a mob-rule society now.

Is Civil War Coming to Amerika?

A Georgetown University poll indicates that 67% of the voters polled believe that civil war can break out at any time in the U.S., because, it seems, there is a lot of anger out there.

That is, a civil war like that of 1861-1865. Yeah, THAT “civil war.”

Donald Trump has been saying nasty things for years, and he elicits anger in people including his supporters and those who apparently despise him.

Now, I can see how after 8 years of Obama and seeing the hostility from the braindead media with their constant lies and propaganda as well as the irrationality on the college campuses, that conservatives can be easily manipulated by Trump’s vitriolic rhetoric.

And because of the mass media propaganda against Trump and the rise in violent groups such as Antifa and the “Democratic Socialists” who believe in violence and coercion and government guns to carry out their schemes, we see a lot of social conflicts out there.

And I can see how some people don’t like being “deplatformed” by snowflake fascists who are intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them, the hunger of various sadists to go after the non-“woke” and get them fired from their jobs or banished entirely from “woke” society, or hearing Mark Zuckerberg attempt to defend freedom of speech and diversity of views on Fakebook while at the same time promoting only government-approved propaganda as being non-fake news.

But civil war?I don’t know about that.

Actually, the ones who would probably start a “war” and start shooting and bombing would be the ones whose views show that they believe in aggression, force and coercion as a means to an end.

For example, the Bush wars (on foreigners, not domestic) were wars of aggression started by the elder President Bush in 1991 and then the junior George W. Bush in 2001 and 2003.

And more recently Donald Trump believes in aggression, force and coercion in carrying out the drug war, his tribalistic war on immigrants and his trade war.

And then there are the people on the left who want to impose their socialist and communist policies with government guns. They may be even worse, given that they are feverishly working on disarming all law-abiding civilians and making them defenseless while at the same time promoting only government police and military (and non-government criminals) to have firearms.

But I still don’t think that Amerika is headed toward actual civil war. Unfortunately, a lot of people now are addicted to their stupid little gadgets, their iPhones and smartphones, and they can’t put it down and stop staring at the thing for two seconds. So many people now are addicted to the idiocy on social media, which is a place of extreme hostility, ignorance and anger on both sides.

So, it’s really this social media phenomenon that is causing the social conflicts to be exaggerated and why 67% of the voters polled think that civil war (not just civil unrest, but civil war) is coming.

Unlike an actual “civil war,” civil unrest is when we see Antifa gathering at a “Straight Pride” event and throwing urine bottles at police, and so on. But that’s not a “war.” A war is when various people in some area are armed with guns, semiautomatic rifles, bazookas, cannons and bombs firing all those things at other people in some other area, and vice versa, and it goes on for a while, with masses of dead people on the streets and so on. That’s a “war.”

But are we seeing any indication of that? Occasionally there are Antifa and white supremacists maybe getting into fights. And are there even any more of those kinds of events than there were say 10 or 20 years ago? 40 years ago we had groups such as “Weather Underground” bombing and shooting people. There are isolated incidents here and there over the years. (However, what we have had over the past 20 years have been Americans joining the largest criminal gang in the world and going over to Iraq and Afghanistan and murdering thousands, hundreds of thousands of innocent people in those areas, as the aforementioned George W. Bush did start two wars of aggression against the people of those countries and he’s still walking free. But obviously that hasn’t been a “civil” war.)

When I go outside into the center of town or into the stores, etc., I don’t see hostility, anger or hatefulness. Just regular people going about their business, and store clerks being their usual nice and friendly selves. On the public transportation there are people talking to others they are with, just regular conversations, or what I see are most people by themselves and mostly staring down into their stupid little electronic gadgets, totally oblivious to their surroundings. Now, it is possible that they are on social media getting a dose of vitriol, anger and hate in the stupid little Twitter and Fakebook things they look at — but otherwise, I am not seeing any signs of an actual “civil war” brewing. Are you seeing otherwise?

However, when the 2020 election comes around and if the ignorant fascist Trump wins despite the propaganda campaign against him, or if the shrieking bitter old hag Elizabeth Warren wins then we probably will see some trouble after 2020. But I still don’t think it will be an actual civil war. The conditions in society are not anything like they were in 1860. And also, many people now are too Xanaxized, hypnotized and subdued by their addictions to stupid electronic gadgets and social media.

So, everybody just cool it.

It’s Like an Orwell Novel in 2019 Amerika

Well, it’s been a tough couple of weeks, and I’m trying to get my brain working again. I’ll try to make some comments here on some of the recent annoying events in USSA Amerika. The Democrats are a joke. But the Republicans are also a joke. Let’s call the whole thing off. Can we cancel the 2020 election? Can we dismiss Trump because he really is a fascist, and dismiss those crooks and psychopaths in CONgress because they also are fascists and communists? I still like Lew Rockwell’s 30-day plan. It’s from 1991 but still applies today, and always.

What’s been going on? Libertarians and conservatives seem to be promoting Tulsi Gabbard, maybe for her allegedly antiwar views, even though she’s for “Medicare for All,” she’s an hysterical climate alarmist, she’s for a government-mandated minimum wage, she’s for reparations, i.e. she’s a left-wing kook. Plus, she criticizes the “endless wars” that are in the name of serving Raytheon and other merchants of death, yet she continually adulates her “brothers and sisters” in the military and praises their perpetrating those “endless wars”! She also says that the U.S. military should be to fight al Qaeda, who “attacked us on 9/11,” but she never says what led to that attack, i.e. what the U.S. military had been doing to the Middle East in the decades prior to that time. I think libertarians and conservatives just like Tulsi for her looks, quite frankly.

The Democrats, led by Hillary Rotten Clinton, have been going after Gabbard for some reason, calling her a “Russian asset,” just as they are calling The Donald a “Russian asset.” What Democrats really didn’t like was that Trump criticized the endless wars that Obama continued to make endless, and Trump criticized the national security state during the 2016 election, and the Obomber apparatchiks such as James Clapper, Comey and John Brennan didn’t like that. So they schemed and connived to make up a dossier against Trump to use as a reason to illegally spy on his campaign. And the national security establishment in and out of power have been trying to derail Trump’s presidency and 2020 campaign. And Lindsey Graham and his fellow national security state worshipers are now stalling in their duty to investigate the illegal origins of the Russia-collusions probe. They’re ALL criminals!

So, the “Democrats” really oppose the basic premise of “democracy.” If an election doesn’t go their way, they make things up and if they don’t want to actually assassinate him they will attempt to impeach him. So now while the “Russia-Russia-Russia” stuff takes a temporary recess, it’s Ukraine-Ukraine-Ukraine. We have the corrupt Adam Schiffty conducting hearings behind closed doors, in secret, banning Rethugs from the hearings, because obviously he has something to hide. And House Spooker Nancy Lugosi knows that there is no real evidence from a phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president to prove anything criminal, especially when the White House released a transcript soon after the accusations arose. I think members of the House Freedom Carcass are trying to censure Adam Schiff for his naughtiness. Especially when he reads aloud a made-up and slanderous conversation supposedly between Trump and Ukraine president. I can’t believe he actually did that. Schiff should be impeached, not just censured.

And the Democrats are pro-war now? During the 2000s the Democrats and their media and show-biz cohorts were constantly protesting George W. Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Harry Reid and Pelosi had that all-nighter pajama party, remember that? But, as soon as Obama became President and continued the wars, the occupations and the bombings and drone strikes, so much for Democrats protesting. Crickets.

So, they really weren’t antiwar during the Bush years, they were just anti-Bush, just as they are now anti-Trump. No principles involved at all with these political hacks. They just hated Bush because he “stole the 2000 election in Florida.”

But the hypocritical, partisan Democrats  are no different from the Republicans and CONservatives who protest Democrats’ tax-n-spend welfare statism but are nevertheless welfare statists themselves.

And this thing with Sean Hannity’s criticism of the “deep state,” that is sometimes referred to by those people as the bureaucratic or administrative state, which is sort of true. But the “deep state” is really the national security state, the CIA-FBI-DOJ-NSA-military-industrial complex. Hannity LOVES the national security state. And as I’ve said before, if it was the Bush DOJ and FBI going after the Obama campaign with fraudulent FISA warrants to spy, Hannity would be on the side of suppressing any investigation of all that and would probably be on the side of the Bush apparatchiks, in my view.

And now we have Willard back in the news! Willard Mitt Romney, calling for Trump to be impeached and going by some secret Twitter account to give himself “likes” or whatever the hell he’s doing. Typical sleazebag, FOS Willard. Yes, that Willard Romney, the one who as governor of Massachusetts raised taxes and fees by hundreds of millions of dollars, and in his 2012 presidential run said regarding taxes that “everything is on the table,” including raising taxes on the wealthy, and who supported the Wall Street bailout while receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, received government subsidies for his Bain Capital, the one who colluded with Ted Kennedy to concoct a mandatory health insurance scheme for Massachusetts that was the model for the whole USSA Amerika, the one who said he supports the 2nd Amendment while at the same time opposes the 2nd Amendment, and Willard the fascist drug warrior, yes, that Willard Romney.

So, while Romney Willard has been critical of Trump for “Russia collusions” that never happened, and now wants Trump impeached for non-crimes with Ukraine, I’d like to know why there was never an investigation over why, as he was leaving as governor of Massachusetts, Romney had his staff remove computers and destroy hard drives from their office computers? What was he hiding and covering up? Was it the detailed information and emails regarding their concocting RomneyCare to impose on the people of Massachusetts? So, in my view Romney is just another criminal government scumbag, and when in March of 2016 he was criticizing Trump in that big speech as a “phony,” a “fraud,” a “fake,” and a “con man,” Willard was really talking about himself!

And would those talk radio sheeple please stop saying that while Romney is a “RINO,” a “Republican in Name Only,” he is nevertheless a “decent” guy, NO, he is NOT a “decent” guy, he is INdecent, a sleazy, corrupt, dishonest, BAD guy! Romney is the one who should be impeached!

You see, it’s the existence of that Leviathan apparatus in Warshington that attracts the worst of the worst to get that kind of illicit power and that enables the criminality and empowers the criminal element of society to “legally” steal from their neighbors and otherwise tyrannize innocent people. Again, decentralization is the real solution, and Rockwell’s 30-day plan is still a good idea. But it can be done in fewer than 30 days. Rothbard explains how and how not to decentralize. And that is what we need, so we can stop having to call this place, “USSA, Amerika.”

Ignorant and Brainwashed People with Power: They Suck

Ignorant and brainwashed people with power really suck. First we have a 12-year-old girl in a Kansas school arrested and taken away in handcuffs, and now threatened with a year in jail for gesturing with her hand like a gun.

Because of government school “zero tolerance” policies, education bureaucrats and “resource officers” are a major threat to innocent children and compromising the students’ futures as well.

According to court records as reported by the New York Post, the girl “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities…”

No, she didn’t do that. She was just kidding around. But government employees tend to not have a grasp on reality. And government school employees generally have lower IQs and so they think that 2+2=5 and in is out and up is down, etc., as we have seen through the years.

These kinds of situations are happening all the time now in the schools, as the teachers and administration bureaucrats are terrorizing and traumatizing little kids and having them arrested and harassed by government police, for no good reason. John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute is constantly providing one example after another in his articles.

What needs to be done is parents have to turn the tables on these government criminals, by having them charged with threatening minors, child abuse and terrorism, child endangerment, for starters.

And it isn’t just the schools. In Fort Forth, Texas, a police officer is charged with murder for shooting a lady in her home while he was outside her bedroom window, without having identified himself or waiting for a response from her after he shouted at her for no good reason. You’ve probably heard about this one.

But what actually caused this incident? A “concerned” neighbor called police because he saw the lady’s front and side doors left open “for several hours,” according to the New York Times. Apparently there were lights on in the home.

Now, if the neighbor was “concerned,” why couldn’t he just go over to the open door and maybe say, “Yoohoo, hello in there, everything all right?” But nooooo, even though there was no indication that the home was broken into, or that there was any criminal activity going on in there, the “concerned” neighbor goes and call the police!

So, I don’t know if the neighbor is just dumb and has no common sense or what. But this is another behavior we have been seeing over the years now, in which neighbors call the police on some innocent people, on moms inside the house because their little one is outside playing in the yard “unsupervised,” or calling the police on 5- or 10-year-old kids who are walking alone along a street on the way to a friend’s house.

I think the answer to those problems is: Don’t call the police!!

The problem of no common sense and people compromising the lives and liberty of innocents is going on all over the U.S., and in Europe as well.

In France, the fascist President Emmanuel Macron is imposing facial recognition technology for ID to use various services including bank accounts, even though a hacker took only an hour to “break into a ‘secure’ government messaging app” during the 6-month experimental phase, according to the U.K. Telegraph.

In France, no choice and no consent are required. Why does the government have anything to do with people’s private bank accounts? It’s the same thing here, by the way.

This fascism and government surveillance/tracking/intrusion/violation of lives and privacy are more reasons why decentralization is the solution to most of society’s ills, including Internet insecurity. Why do people want the government to either run or be in control over THAT? Everything the government operates or controls turns to crap. That’s true in the U.S. as well. And the more centralized the regime, the worse it is, like in Warshington, D.C.

So, France sucks. And so does the U.K., in fact. Talk about being against democracy! They had a Brexit vote over three years ago, in which the majority 52% voted to leave the EU while 48% voted to remain. They had a democratic vote, but they do not respect it.

If England really does become truly independent, then I hope the other European countries can follow. In the U.S. we need at least one state to leave the “union,” which has been a coerced and involuntary association from the very beginning, especially since the end of the mid-19th Century war by the U.S. government against the seceding states. We have an extremely dangerous and tyrannical regime in Warshington, and, as the Declaration of Independence states, it is the “Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…”

We can’t rely on the criminal parasites and gangsters of the U.S. CONgress to let go of their little power-wielding fiefdoms and their unearned extravagances, so it’s really up to the people of the states to separate and become independent. You see, the centralized U.S. government having so much power and control over 300,000,000+ innocent lives removes the ability of the people to “vote with their feet,” because there’s nowhere else to go, really.

If the people of the territory can decentralize, then they can vote with their feet. People are already doing that. For example, many of the people of New York were not able to afford all the tax-thefts imposed on them by the regime in Albany, so they left NY for other states such as Florida.

The people in Hong Kong get it. They want their independence, and their freedom. They want to separate from the authoritarian tyrants in China, but the regime in Beijing doesn’t want to leave them alone. Alas, various U.S. sports figures are openly siding with China. What’s up with that? And they call those siding with the Hong Kong protesters as “misinformed.” Humph!

Incidentally, I listen to Bloomberg Radio and in the morning they have “Daybreak Europe,” in which the news anchors are based in London and most of them are British. WHY do they insist on pronouncing “China” as “Chiner”? Is there a reason? Didn’t they go to school? Didn’t they learn how to pronounce “China”?

Anyway, in Spain, their Supreme Bureaucrats have found separatists guilty of sedition and sentenced them to 13 years in prison. So, along with Chiner, the Spanish rulers don’t get it either.

People have a right to their freedom and independence, i.e. they have a right to not be enslaved by ruling bureaucrats.

I wish the U.S. bureaucrats in Warshington would get that. (I wish that all the millions of American sheeple would get it, as well.)

And just look at how entrenched U.S. bureaucrats hate democracy so much that when they lose a presidential election they use the “national security” apparatus to go after their winning opponent, spying on his campaign and then infiltrating the White House for more spying, and making stuff up and using an entire “special counsel” to investigate nothing for 2 years.

And when that doesn’t work the entrenched apparatchiks take one presidential phone call and use it to make more stuff up, calling for impeachment based on one phone call even though their target and his office released the transcript, and then the commissar leading the charge, Adam Shiffty, deliberately lies and makes up a conversation as he’s reading it in an official Congressional hearing and making people think it was the actual phone call in question!

So the obedient robots of the moonstream media are just following along as they have been for 3 years, repeating the whole false story word for word, because they don’t know any other facts, only what bureaucrats tell them. The government’s groupies in the media don’t do any actual investigative research, they just act as government stenographers.

So, while the Adam Shifftys and the “news” media make stuff up, when Joe Biden’s actual threats and pressure of Ukrainian government officials are proven by video of Biden himself bragging to a crowd that he did that, the media ignore that!

Speaking of brainwashed people with power, why do ignorant fascists have to ban things, like plastic straws? How is banning plastic straws going to “save the environment” (or “Save the Whales,” the polar bears, or whatever)? There are plenty of terrible garbage items besides plastics in the oceans, and on land as well.

The problem is not that people are using plastic straws. The problem is that people are littering! There are already laws on the books against littering! Why don’t these hysterical environmentalist crusaders go after the litterbugs? (Oh, they ARE litterbugs! Or many of them, I’ll bet.) Perhaps Project Veritas can follow the loudest pro-straw-banning environmentalists around and see if they are the litterbugs.

Some people just like to have a lot of power and order others around and be control freaks. And Donald Trump is one of them, by the way.

Religious Cults in 21th Century Amerika

Just recently I had written a post on the brainwashed climate fanatics and how that is a cult, or a religious cult, in which the cultists call for censoring (or jailing, or killing) skeptics or scientists who have a different assessment of the climate situation other than the one the cultists are brainwashed with. And I also mentioned the transgender movement which is itself a cult in which some forms of speech are also censored such as correctly referring to a biological male as “he,” etc.

Another example of a religious cult is the worship that many people have of the State, or specifically the centralized U.S. government in Washington. That took a turn for the worse after World War II with the Cold War national security state in Washington that was already a religious cult by the time it felt so threatened by President John F. Kennedy’s wanting to dismantle the Cold War apparatus of “national security” and encourage peace and free trade, that the national security state had to take out JFK. That national security state cult has controlled “America” and the U.S. government ever since.

Finally we had someone in Donald Trump who was willing to at least criticize the national security state and wanting to “drain the swamp,” even though in his cognitive dissonance Trump at the same time worships the military and government central planning. Go figure.

But, as long as Trump even questioned, for instance, the legitimacy of the wars in the Middle East, combined with his politically incorrect rhetoric, the Establishment including the national security state in Washington couldn’t have that. The Washington religious cult and the enforcement of conformity and obedience to the centralized authority was being threatened. And the now entrenched PC culture in Washington was also threatened.

So, in the tradition of J. Edgar Hoover the apparatchiks made use of the FISA spying authority and made up stuff about Trump to “leak” to the news media wing of the government, and the whole “Trump-Russia collusions” false narrative and the Mueller investigation went on for years.

And don’t forget late last year that “anonymous” source from within the White House who allegedly wrote that New York Slimes op-ed in which the Slimes said s/he was a “senior official in the Trump administration” who was admitting to sabotaging the Trump agenda.

So the “Russia collusions” false narrative didn’t work, and immediately after the Mueller Report found “No Trump-Russia collusions,” “no there there,” the apparatchiks then went on to demand Trump’s tax returns, with no actual crime they suspected him of and no initial evidence and reasonable suspicion, in their next fishing expedition. (Due process, in case you didn’t know, isn’t the fave of religious cultists who point at someone they don’t like and falsely accuse him of something.)

So now the national security state comrades, in their drooling brainwashed obedience to State authority and worship, are abusing their access to information in the White House to falsely accuse Trump of whatever they can come up with to try to get rid of him, without having to do what their predecessors did to JFK. I’ll bet they can take ANY phone call between Trump and any other foreign official and make use of some innocent, routine thing Trump might have said, to then falsely accuse him of some egregious violation of the Constitution. So this time they have used his conversation with the Ukrainian president.

We can see how brainwashed people are, such as many in the news media who are reporting as fact what Adam Schiffty read in the Committee’s hearings with the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire, even though Schiffty just made it up, his portrayal of Trump as a mob boss demanding a quid pro quo, which the actual transcript does not show. The “news” media including the morning news reader on Bloomberg Radio yesterday morning referred to Trump as asking the Ukrainian president “to dig up dirt” on Joe Biden, which is what Adam Schiff said (the made-up script) but not what Trump actually said (according to the actual transcript). And the government groupies at NPR were doing that too.

So all throughout the news media we had “Trump-Russia collusions,” repeated by government-worshipers who just take the word of government officials as The Word never to be questioned or challenged with no investigative reporting necessary. And now we have the Trump-Ukrainian president phone call, and Adam Schiff’s made up version that “news” media are repeating. And we have members of Congress calling for “impeachment” of Trump now, and for made up stuff.

This is how brainwashed many people are now, throughout Amerika, in the State cult. But that cult isn’t just on the part of anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-freedom people on the Left, but on the part of many who are defending Trump as well. And I have said it before, but Sean Hannity is the worst of the worst when it comes to propagandists for the State and specifically the national security state in Washington. If the political parties were reversed, and it had been the Bush FBI and DOJ who used FISA spying authority to spy on the Obama campaign in 2008 and all that was surfacing in 2009-2010, I think that in such a case Sean Hannity would be defending the FBI and DOJ apparatchiks and participating in suppressing information in the same way that all the leftist “news” media have been suppressing the facts and pushing lies and propaganda since Trump was elected. And Hannity would be cheering on a hypothetical “witch hunt” against Obama using made up stuff, in my view. Just like with the Bush Jr. war in Iraq. And the rest of them on conservative talk radio and Fake News Fox News.

If you remember after 9/11, some people such as Harry Browne and others brought up the likelihood that there wouldn’t have been a 9/11 if the U.S. government had not started a war against Iraq in 1991 and imposed sanctions and no-fly zones that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians by the year 2000.

In response to that valid claim, plenty of people in America including Hannity would label the truth-tellers as “blaming America” for 9/11 or “joining with the enemy,” etc. That is because people who are brainwashed to love and adore and worship the national security state in Washington, including the military, cannot accept the possibility that what the government and military had been doing for years or decades was morally wrong, criminal, and evil. They just cannot fathom that, so they attack the truth-tellers.

The worshipers of the national security state include most of those talk-radio ditto-heads, including Hannity, Dennis Prager, and Rush Limbaugh. I have heard them defend the U.S. military’s bombing of Korea and Vietnam and mass murders of hundreds of thousands, as well as the atomic bombing and mass murders of hundreds of thousands in Japan. We hear them constantly saying how “pro-life” they are, “it’s immoral to kill one innocent human being,” and so on. Yet they rationalize the government’s murders of innocents, based on the government’s lies and propaganda. They were obediently believing of the Bush administration’s propaganda, and were all in on the “war on terror,” in Afghanistan and Iraq.

It’s a part of State worship that many people are brainwashed with on a daily basis from their earliest days in school, pledging allegiance to the flag, i.e. obedience to State authority. They have been conditioned to be True Believers in the real god, the State. And it is this cult of “American Exceptionalism” which is why so many people dismiss the ideas of decentralization as “fringe” thinking. (Decentralization is necessary to restore our freedom.)

So the America Cult that is a part of the government-worship cult is another example of religious cults in America.

Another religious cult is the vaccine cult. Yes I am going there. This is one in which the “news” media repeat all the pharmaceutical industry promotions as “news,” and in which people say that the “science is settled,” and this or that has been “debunked,” even though it hasn’t been debunked. People are derogatorily called “anti-vaxxers” by the vaccine True Believers even though most of the so-called “anti-vaxxers” are ex-vaxxers because they saw with their own eyes what vaccines had done to their kids.

All the totalitarian crapola despite the fact that the flu shot is as little as 10% effective, vaccines and their aluminum or mercury adjuvants have been proven to negatively affect health, moods and behaviors via their causing neurological disorders, and the federal government (that many people worship for some reason) has paid out over $4 billion in compensation to families for vaccine-related injuries.

And the measles hysteria. Are you serious? Local and state governments are mandating possibly harmful vaccines based on pure hysteria and ignorance. They’re removing exemptions and really forcing it on the people! Talk about a totalitarian society in Amerika!

In the old days, like in the 1960s and ’70s when I was a kid, parents had “measles parties,” in which they intentionally let their kids get the measles so they could develop natural lifetime immunity, whereas in these later years the medical establishment (that many people worship as well, which is why it’s so closely aligned with the State that people also blindly worship) says people can instead have vaccines and they’re fine. Well, no they’re not.

And we know it’s hysteria when people are treating the measles like ebola, even though measles is not that serious, it’s like a bad cold or flu but with spots. Rarely does anyone actually die from the measles. It’s not something to be that upset about and panic over.

See Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center on the measles. And Sharyl Attkisson on what the news isn’t saying about vaccine-autism studies.

And we know it is a cult when major Internet platforms and social media are censoring non-Establishment sources of information on vaccines, “de-platforming” bloggers and businesses, and taking down people’s blogs and websites. All in the name of ignorance and hysteria. Yes, that’s a “cult.”

One example of a very well done blog that was taken down was Jon Rappoport’s blog, that WordPress.com took down, probably because of his writing on the vaccines. Here is his new blog, that I have been linking to recently.

I know there are those who don’t want to think of themselves as “brainwashed” or as a part of a “cult.” Oh, well. Sadly, there are many people who need to be deprogrammed. And that is what we have now, in 21st Century Amerika.

While I don’t think I would ever move out of the U.S., because I hate to travel as much as Peg Bracken hates to cook, I nevertheless found this article by Mark Nestmann informative. The article describes Congress and the criminal IRS’s war on overseas Americans. The gubmint in Washington will still go after your earnings and wealth even if you move out of the U.S. The thugs in Washington are greedy, corrupt thieves and muggers who live high off the hog by enslaving the labor of the people. This is why the most wealthy U.S. districts are the areas directly surrounding Washington, D.C. They are gangsters, racketeers, and hooligans. As long as you still vote, you are enabling them, quite frankly.

Have We Advanced Farther Down the Road to Soviet Amerika?

The “Trump-Russia collusions”-“Trump and Russia hacking or manipulating 2016 election results” (that never actually happened and was all made up) seems to be an ongoing agenda by the national security state (a.k.a. “deep state”). This time a CIA spook with an anti-Trump agenda is exploiting a phone call with Trump and Ukrainian president involving alleged “quid pro quo” (which it wasn’t, according to the actual transcript) regarding Joe Biden’s son being investigated or not investigated, and using it as an excuse to make up more stuff and have members of the political class and the government-lapdog media endlessly repeat the hearsay, lies and propaganda toward removing Trump from office.

I think that Congressliar Adam Schiff is the worst of the worst when it comes to Soviet-wannabe government liars. They probably have something on Nancy Pelosi, who knows that a House impeachment of Trump will not get a Senate conviction, because the evidence that is available does not back the assertions of the CIA “whistleblower,” and that such a farce will only strengthen the chance of a Trump reelection. And now, after saying she also was against a Trump impeachment, Congressbimbo Tulsi Gabtard is now for a Trump impeachment. It was a botched joke.

What bothers me is the “Intel (sic) Community” changing the requirements for whistleblowers from having to have direct, first-hand knowledge (or evidence?) of improper (or illegal) behavior of other spooks or superiors, to being able to use second- or third-hand hearsay, rumor and gossip as is the case with the current allegations against Trump of pressuring foreign leaders to do something as a “quid pro quo” for political expediency.

So I’m not sure if all this is merely just an anti-Trump crusade or perhaps a part of a larger agenda to soften due process requirements against anyone who is accused of something. Particularly in the political world (which seems to be a large chunk of what Amerika is all about now, certainly not the economic or voluntary-exchange world).

For example, just as the flunkies of the DOJ, CIA and FBI made stuff up about Donald Trump to try to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election and if that didn’t work then make stuff up to try to take down the Trump presidency, in that regard the apparatchiks made stuff up about Brett Kavanaugh to derail his getting on the Supreme Bureaucrats. And don’t misunderstand me, I think that Kavanaugh should never have a judicial appointment given that his lower-court rulings show what a dangerous anti-America anti-due process police-state ignoramus he is. But, anyone who is accused of something has a right to require the accuser to bring forth evidence against the accused, regardless who the accused is. Trump, Kavanaugh, or you or me.

This is especially a cause for concern now because of the “Red Flag” laws already in place or that are being proposed all over Amerika. That’s mainly to do with the gun control lobby, hysterical snowflakes who can’t understand that it is the gun control laws and gun-free zones we already have in place that are disarming peaceful, responsible citizens and making the people defenseless in the event of a crazed shooter who doesn’t obey gun laws or any laws for that matter. The hysterical snowflakes just can’t seem to get through their damn noggins.

So now the hysterical snowflakes are acting as useful idiots for the police statists who want to have a government armed to the teeth ruling over a totally disarmed civilian population. This is the way that communists like “The Squad” can ram their agendas through and they will enforce their wealth-confiscation and industry-seizures at the point of a government gun against the enslaved and helpless population. Martial law? Civil unrest? In America? (Some people think I’m way off, or that I’m “paranoid.” But that is because they don’t know history.)

But the “Red Flag” laws will enable anyone to accuse anyone else of anything, particularly such victims who do not support the agenda of police state, industry-seizure and wealth-confiscation, i.e. slavery of the people by the elite political class. This is the real reason why “Red Flag” laws and all the greedy and power-hungry minions of the political class have all the voices of the mainstream corporate media on their side, repeating the propaganda over and over and over.

Don’t believe the propaganda, everyone. Just assume they are lying, or they are covering up the truth (or they are spreading false information because they are ignoramuses and/or brainwashed sheeple). And especially they do not have your interests at heart. If they did, they would be promoting freedom, freedom for you and freedom for me, and that necessarily means the dismantling of the federal regime apparatus, a full and complete decentralization of this whole territory, at the very least.

What Is Going On With This Ukraine Phone Call Stuff?

U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe explains how the “whistleblower” complaint against Donald Trump regarding his phone call with the president of Ukraine is based on hearsay, “second- and third-hand” information.

An article on the Federalist explains how just last month the Intel (sic) Community secretly eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings.

So the Intel Community’s flunkies in the mainstream media, many Democrats in Congress and even some Republicans including Willard Romney are pushing for impeaching Trump based solely on that phone call, and based on inadmissible hearsay “evidence.” Rep. Adam Schiffty read a fake transcript that he implied was the real one to fabricate a false narrative. Now that’s a scumbag.

Trump was not doing anything illegal, unconstitutional, unethical, or treasonous, in his phone call with the Ukrainian president. According to the Examiner, these are the main points of what Trump said:

I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people … The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.

I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.

Meanwhile, the Democrats in 2018 asked the Ukrainian government to cooperate with the Mueller investigation of “Russia collusions” which never existed. Huh? The pot calling the kettle black?

Joe Lauria comments about a phone call between “Victoria Nuland, then assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, and Geoffrey Pyatt, then U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, that then Vice President Biden played a role in ‘midwifing’ the U.S.-backed overthrow of an elected Ukrainian government soon after that conversation.” Good one, Plugs.

And Caitlin Johnstone writes about the mainstream media defending “whisltleblowers” but ignoring actual whistleblowers.

The actual whistleblowers of our time include Bradley Manning (now known as Chelsea Manning), John Kiriakou, William Binney, Thomas Drake, Edward Snowden, and many others who are never defended or celebrated by the MSM, because they are not communists or apparatchiks of the national security state.

Now, I loathe Donald Trump and disagree with most of his awful socialist and fascist policies, but these scum in Washington are so bad and dishonest in their outright lying. The “news” media are real propagandists now.
