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.

The “Fourth Estate” Are Now Slaves of Crazed U.S. Government Psychopaths

Paul Craig Roberts says the end of accountable government is close at hand. And he’s right. Roberts observes that the CIA has so much control over the “news” media and government-approved explanations of events that most of the mainstream news media is a farce.

And,

What is astonishing about the CIA’s destruction of Julian Assange is the silence of American law schools and bar associations, the silence of universities, the absence of student and labor union protests, the absence of any protection of Assange’s rights from courts as the last news organization willing and capable of holding governments accountable for their crimes is destroyed openly in full view of the law schools, intellectuals, bar associations, courts, and print and TV media.

The CIA’s control over explanations is as complete as the control Big Brother has in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984.And this doesn’t bother the citizens of the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Europe.Only a few individuals speak out for Assange, and they, too, are demonized in turn.

In fact, I was listening to a talk radio show today, and the two co-hosts are still referring to that dreaded phone call between Donald Trump and the Ukrainian president as “Trump looking to dig up dirt on a political opponent,” Joe Biden, which is not what that phone call in question was. That was what Congressman Adam Schiffty said it was, when he read his made-up version of the phone call. The White House released a transcript of the actual phone call, and it did not show that Trump was looking for “dirt” on political opponents.

The moonstream media is a puppet of the national security state, the CIA and the military. They are not the “liberal media.” What a joke that is.

Also today Gary Barnett writes that the real news is what is not in the news. He points out that we have not been hearing anything about the Jeffrey Epstein case, or about what the U.S. government is doing to Julian Assange. He also notes the silence of non-government-approved news regarding 9/11 for the past 18 years.

I don’t know if it’s the news editors and news radio and TV producers who take direct orders from the Pentacon and the CIA, or they are so well trained by the time they get their high-up news-control jobs those editors and producers just censor based on what they have been conditioned to believe the government would approve. The control the U.S. government has over “news” (i.e. propaganda) media is amazing.

When it comes to events and issues in which people contradict the official government narrative, such as 9/11, they are called “conspiracy theorists” and so on. The same thing goes for the climate issue, in which people are labeled “deniers” by the obedient closed-minded crusaders who believe that science is “settled.” In fact, those aforementioned liberal talk radio people I heard today also frequently use the phrase, “debunked conspiracy theory” when it comes to the Russiagate or now the Ukrainegate issues. Are they that dumb? Or are they just extremely dishonest anti-truth propagandists?

And finally, Ben Norton writes about about journalist Max Blumenthal being arrested by Warshington’s anti-freedom of the press gestapo, as relates to his political reporting on Venezuela. (Kevin Gosztola has an article on that too.) Blumenthal had been exposing the Venezuelan opposition crackpots who are supported by regime-change fanatics in Warshington.

I think the “national security” (sic) state in Warshington, the moonstream media, those statists and parasites inside the beltway, they are very sick and deranged people. Liars, propagandists, and apparatchiks. They are sick.

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.

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.

Two Cults of the Modern Dark Ages: Climate Change and Transgender

This week included a major school “strike” for the climate fanatics, in which school students skipped their classes to attend events all over the country. The young people are experiencing anxiety and depression now because of being terrorized by their elder climate fanatics such as Alexandira Ocasio-Cortez, who say that we only have 12 years before we’re all dead from climate change.

“The world is going to end in 12 years.” No it’s not, you morons. People have been saying these things, from “The Coming Ice Age” to Global Warming to “Climate Change,” for decades and decades.

But the truth is that the main goal of the fanatics is the expansion of government, the further centralization of government power, the further empowering of government to steal more from their neighbors via government-imposed redistributionism, and based on envy and covetousness, and that’s really it, people.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow brainwashed dupes were themselves kids during the mid-2000s when Al Gore was warning people with his climate alarmism that included “An Inconvenient Truth” that was shown in classrooms throughout America. He and his cohorts should be charged with terrorism, and child abuse as well.

And Al Gore and his fellow Climate Crusaders are so concerned about the environment that they fly around in planes going from conference to conference, polluting the air from city to city to city. By the way, after being shamed into adding “green upgrades” to his 10,000+ square-foot home, the Gore home’s “footprint” is worse now than it was before he added the “green upgrades”!

Many people now are brainwashed to believe the climate change ideology, and they really are genuinely a cult of fanatics. They are religious crusaders who want to censor or call for the jailing of those who bring up inconvenient facts that refute the fanatics’ claims and repeated propaganda, not just jail for the “deniers” but death as well.

On Meet the Press, Chuck Toady had a one-hour special discussing the “Climate Change Crisis,” but didn’t invite anyone with an opposing point of view. Why, we needn’t even bother with the “deniers,” so what’s the point of including them? We know the truth already. Right, Toady?

And there are those who say that, well 97% of climate scientists agree with the Climate Change ideology (which isn’t true, by the way), and all the news outlets tell us about “Climate Change” and so it must be true. Well, a lot of people (like, maybe a billion or more?) believe in the Bible and Biblical scriptures, but does that mean the Biblical scriptures are really true?

The mass media repeat things over and over and over, so it must be true. Like, “Trump-Russia collusions,” and other things as Paul Craig Roberts pointed out, including 9/11, bin Laden, Saddam’s “weapons of mass destruction,” and so on. No, just because millions and millions of people believe something and the mass media and government bureaucrats repeat it over and over, that means nothing, and it doesn’t mean the propaganda is true. It does mean that a lot of people are gullible and easily manipulable. And it is getting worse today as government-controlled education stomps out the kids’ critical thinking skills and indoctrinates them with nonsense.

So, if you are someone who refuses to hear the opposing arguments and instead calls for censorship, calls for jailing or death to “deniers,” then yes you are a “crusader” and a part of a religious and fanatical “cult.”

One of the cult crusaders making her views known was this little 16-year-old climate groupie from Sweden, lecturing the rest of us. Lecturing the previous generations. She’s brainwashed. According to Wikipedia, she has an opera singer mother and an actor father. After she was first exposed to the Climate Change propaganda, “she became depressed and lethargic, stopped talking and eating, and was eventually diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and selective mutism,” says Wikipedia. Besides training their little girl to be a manipulative whiner and a shrill demagogue looking toward the Oscars, I wonder what else her actor parents did to her, psychologically? The climate cult fanatics have given her Asperger syndrome, obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and selective mutism, apparently. And shame on the greedy corporate green cronies who are exploiting this kid and her childhood as well.

Anyway, there are thousands of scientists who do not sign on to the fear-mongering propaganda. “Science is settled” means that it is settled by consensus. But there is never a legitimate consensus when scientific inquiry and testing and retesting of data are resisted. Actual science is important. And evidence is important, too. The “evidence” the cultists use to “prove” their points mainly consists of computer models that are often shown to be wrong.

Another example of a society-wide brainwashed cult is the transgender movement. Yes, it is a “cult,” in which the rational people are not allowed to refer to someone who is a biological male as “he” or “him” and are accused of “misgendering” when in actuality it is people who are calling an actual male “she” or “her” who are misgendering. It is a cult when the brainwashed ones call for jailing people who “misgender” others (i.e. referring to someone with the correct gender pronoun).

There are actually people who when they talk to someone or introduce themselves with their name they also add a quick “he/him” or “she/her” to make sure the other person knows for sure what their gender identity is. I’ve seen people who are clearly female, for example, putting “she/her” on their Facebook or Twit profile. Really? You’re definitely female, it’s obvious with your looks and your name, but you have to make sure that others are given more information so that they know for sure that you are female? (This isn’t a “cult”?)

The transgender cult now includes Republican governors of U.S. states, such as Massachusetts and New Hampshire (the “Live Free or Die” state), signing bills to outlaw “conversion therapy,” which doesn’t just include “electric shock therapy” but also includes merely helping someone deal with the insecurity of gender identity issues.

When government officials outlaw certain conversations between a doctor and patient, or between a psychologist and a client, yes, we are talking about a “cult” here.

And then there are the many parents now, especially in the U.K., who are brainwashed to believe that if their child shows interests or behaviors of the opposite sex that therefore the parent should encourage the child to BE the opposite sex, give the kid hormones and eventually surgically mutilate the child to “become” the opposite sex. And we’re talking about parents starting their gender-confused kids in such a process at the age of 4 or 5! Those parents and the “doctors” who go along with these rituals of psychosis really ought to be charged with child abuse. They are ruining their children’s lives and their futures, certainly much more than “climate change” ever could. And the transgender cultists are becoming CPS nazis as well in the U.K., stealing kids from parents who refuse to comply with the transgender religious cult.

The truth is, that we’re not allowed by law in Massachusetts and New Hampshire (the “Live Free or Die” state) to say, the truth is most kids who experience an interest in being the opposite sex are merely going through a phase and will probably grow out of it at some point, says a Johns Hopkins psychiatrist. Someone who is or thinks he is “transgender” most likely has unresolved emotional issues from one’s childhood, issues that need to be resolved (which is now illegal in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state — have I mentioned that?).

But the fanatical rage of what’s “in” these days, like the transgender movement, has taken over rationality just like “climate change” and other issues of panic and hysteria that also includes the hysterical anti-Iran propaganda and the anti-immigration movement.
