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.

Julian Assange May Have Had Leakers’ Info Taken by His Torturers

Retired USAF lieutenant colonel Karen Kwiatkowski has an update on the tortured Julian Assange. Among other things, She writes:

Julian Assange is reported to very thin, very sick and being treated at this point, as little more than a “lab rat” by his state doctors and interrogators at Belmarsh.  Word is that his encryption key ring (with his private keys that unlock his various public keys) has already been extracted, under physical duress, cold, light and noise torture, food deprivation, BZ variants, some experimental, and now that he is very physically weak, PCP.  The arrests have started and they won’t stop until the injured parties –mainly the US government – have satisfied their bloodlust.

And she warns leakers to “take cover – legal, physical, operational and otherwise.”

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.
