Further Leftist Hysteria and More Reasons to Abolish the Supreme Court

Occasionally the Neocon Review has an informative article. This time the Review writes about a recent New York Times-published accusation about Supreme Bureaucrat Brett Kavanaugh from his much younger years.

The allegation, Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly write in a New York Times story adapted from their forthcoming anti-Kavanaugh book, is this: “We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.”

It looks like Pogrebin and Kelly’s new book is a reaction to Molly Hemingway and Carrie Severino’s book, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court. But I could be wrong.

But in the Review article, we learn that

The book isn’t released until Tuesday, but Mollie Hemingway got a copy, and she writes on Twitter: “The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event.” Omitting this fact from the New York Times story is one of the worst cases of journalistic malpractice in recent memory.

Hence the “New York Slimes.” Now, frankly I couldn’t care less whether the activists impeach Kavanaugh or smear him or libel or slander him. As a lower court judge, Kavanaugh rubber-stamped many police state abuses, and his reading of the Fourth Amendment shows that he has not read the Fourth Amendment. Kavanaugh has stated that the Fourth Amendment “allows governmental searches and seizures without individualized suspicion when the Government demonstrates a sufficient ‘special need’ – that is, a need beyond the normal need for law enforcement – that outweighs the intrusion on individual liberty…”

So, Kavanaugh sees things in the Fourth Amendment that just aren’t there, in the same way a drunk sees pink elephants. Can you see just how far government judicial bureaucrats will go to excuse and rationalize the government’s criminal violations of the right of the people to be secure in their persons, their houses, their papers, and their effects?

Kavanaugh is a judicial rubber-stamper of the surveillance state, Gitmo, the War State, and the CIA, and really a corrupt apparatchik of the bureaucracy and the national security state. Kavanaugh and the other Justices (sic) on the Supreme Parasites wholeheartedly reject the principles of liberty of America’s founders. So why do we need those bureaucrats?

As Ryan McMaken of the Mises Institute has referred to them, the Supremes are the “American version of the Soviet politburo.” But liberals and conservatives need them to aid and abet those political activists’ shoving their social agendas down our throats!

And the reason that Dr. Christine Ballsey Ford and the others were attempting to smear Kavanaugh at last year’s confirmation hearings was not because they are concerned about his statist, police-state views. Those people on the left couldn’t care less about civil liberties. Just look at all the intrusions into our civil liberties imposed on innocent people by Obama with ObamaCare, NDAA, the drug war and his being the “deporter in chief.” And look at all the intrusions each and every one of the current Democrat candidates for President wants to impose on us. Forcing all of us into a one-size-fits-all Medicare for All scheme, confiscating firearms from people who have not harmed anyone, and more tax-stealing.

No, what the people on the left are hysterical over is abortion! That’s all they care about, along with their obsessions with race and skin color and their brainwashed sexual-perversions agenda. But no, it’s abortion. They are terrified that the Supreme Soviets in Washington will overturn Roe v. Wade. Which should be overturned because it’s a BAD decision.

The activists on the left are after Kavanaugh or any other possibly anti-abortion judge is because they have been brainwashed to believe that abortion is their “Rite of Passage,” and that all those millions and millions of girls and young women MUST have an abortion i.e. kill their offspring as a Rite of Passage. Generations now of women are brainwashed with this sick anti-human social agenda.

As Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a founding member of “National Abortion Rights Action League,” or NARAL, wrote in his and his group’s psy-opping the Supreme Court in the 1970s to get them to rule favorably in Roe v. Wade,

We aroused enough sympathy to sell our program of permissive abortion by fabricating the number of illegal abortions done annually in the U.S. The actual figure was approaching 100,000 but the figure we gave to the media repeatedly was 1,000,000. Repeating the big lie often enough convinces the public. The number of women dying from illegal abortions was around 200 – 250 annually. The figure constantly fed to the media was 10,000. These false figures took root in the consciousness of Americans convincing many that we needed to crack the abortion law. Another myth we fed to the public through the media was that legalizing abortion would only mean that the abortions taking place illegally would then be done legally. In fact, of course, abortion is now being used as a primary method of birth control in the U.S. and the annual number of abortions has increased by 1500% since legalization….

I am often asked what made me change my mind. How did I change from prominent abortionist to pro-life advocate? In 1973, I became director of obstetrics of a large hospital in New York City and had to set up a perinatal research unit, just at the start of a great new technology which we now use every day to study the fetus in the womb. A favorite pro-abortion tactic is to insist that the definition of when life begins is impossible; that the question is a theological or moral or philosophical one, anything but a scientific one. Fetology makes it undeniably evident that life begins at conception and requires all the protection and safeguards that any of us enjoy.

Why, you may well ask, do some American doctors who are privy to the findings of fetology, discredit themselves by carrying out abortions? Simple arithmetic: at $300.00 a time 1.55 million abortions means an industry generating $500,000,000 annually, of which most goes into the pocket of the physician doing the abortion. It is clear that permissive abortion is purposeful destruction of what is undeniably human life. It is an impermissible act of deadly violence. One must concede that unplanned pregnancy is a wrenchingly difficult dilemma. But to look for its solution in a deliberate act of destruction is to trash the vast resourcefulness of human ingenuity, and to surrender the public weal to the classic utilitarian answer to social problems.

So, it’s all about abortion. The people on the left are obsessed with abortion and killing their offspring. They will lie and make things up, about medical statistics, about judicial nominees and government judges.

I hope that, if another Justice (sic) retires or dies in the next year or two, Trump will this time nominate Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett. In her own nomination hearings for the lower court, Judge Barrett was the target of an anti-religion grilling by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Shady Pines). Feinstein said that Judge Barrett’s decisions may be too influenced by her religious “dogma.” Barrett is a religious Catholic.

Wikipedia indicates some of Judge Barrett’s decisions have so far been pro-Second Amendment, protecting the Fourth Amendment, not protective of a police officer’s “qualified immunity,” and not favorable to Title IX (involving the  egregious violation of a male student’s right to due process in a sexual assault allegation).

I really hope that a Supreme Bureaucrat leaves the High Court so that we can get an Amy Coney Barret nomination, and watch the fireworks, see the hysterical abortion fanatics make fools of themselves just as they have been doing regarding Brett Kavanaugh. Such a nomination will drag those lefty wackos out of their respective psychiatric hospitals and give us some good entertainment, that’s for sure.

So, we are getting it from all sides of the statist coin here. The leftists with their sick agendas and political correctness fascism, and we are also getting it from the so-called conservatives with their police-state fascism as well.

We really need to completely abolish the Supreme Court and restore the Tenth Amendment. And we need to get some kind of movement going in which if government orders you to do something you don’t voluntarily agree to you just don’t do it, and there are no consequences, because you have not harmed anyone by not following the government’s fascist orders (including participating in “Medicare for All”), and at the same time, if the government prohibits you from doing something or owning or possessing something that is not a harm to others or is not anyone’s else’s business then you just have it anyway and there are no consequences, because your disobeying the government’s prohibition of this or that has not harmed anyone.

Get rid of the Supreme Court. It is truly one of America’s and freedom’s worst enemies.

USSA Amerika in All Its Glory

It seems that everything in Amerika is politicized. With the social activists and “social justice” warriors wanting to silence and “demonetize” those who have a different point of view, and trying to impose a “social credit” score like in China, every aspect of every day life will be politicized and Amerika will be a Soviet 2.0 (if we’re not already there).

The idiots who run Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Google, and Micro$oft have no clue of history, so they are setting out to aid in the tyrannizing of Amerika.

And this seems to be what all or most of the Democrats running for President want to force on us. Trump is just as bad. And ignorant.

Socialists believe in the empowerment of parasites and bureaucrats and the coercion and the enslavement of others. Democrats fit that mold. (But then, so do the Republicans!)

For example, “Medicare for All,” which isn’t that much different as regular Medicare and Social Security. Workers and producers can’t opt out. Employers and workers must do what bureaucrats order them to do. There is no choice in the matter. No freedom.

And Laurence Vance once again points out that Republicans are just as much socialists as their Democrat opponents in the Republicans’ support for Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, SCHIP, “Earned Income Tax Credit,” and Medicare Part D (prescription drug program). All socialist programs.

Even the Libertarian Partly has gone downhill since the Ron Paul-Harry Browne days, with their support in the last two Presidential elections for Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, the pukeworthy “social justice” warriors and interventionists from the Rethug party.

But everything in Amerika now is politics-obsessed and government-obsessed. Only government can solve problems (even though government is mainly the cause of most of the problems!), and the worst of the worst climb up the political ladder to grab that POWER! As soon as the 2016 Presidential election was over, immediately the news media robots were discussing the 2020 election! Doh!

And look at the current bunch of Democrats. Or rather, DON’T look! Yech! Take Elizabeth Warren. Please. She lies on her law school employment applications to fraudulently get work at Harvard, at the expensive of actual minorities who didn’t commit acts of fraud in their applications. Warren lied to the voters of Massachusetts during the last election, promising that if reelected she would stay the full 6-year term as Senator and wouldn’t run for President. The minute she won reelection last November she announces her run for President. We should call her “Liawatha,” no?

And is she a communist who wants the government to run all the industries? Envy, Inc. Warren also gave us the “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,” whose stated purpose is to weed out fraud. (How does a known fraudster weed out fraud?) The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a Democrat money-laundering racket. Did you know that?

And then there’s Kamala Harass, who giggled and replied, “Well said” this week to someone calling Trump “mentally retarded.” And then she tries to lie her way out of it.

Tulsi Gabbard pointed out Harris’s 1,500 marijuana arrests, and that she “blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” and that she “kept people in prison beyond their sentences” for cheap labor.

Also as a California prosecutor Harris arrested and jailed the parents of kids who missed too much school, and laughed about that, too. If I were a psychiatrist, I would love to have her in my office and find out, you know, what happened in her early childhood. I think there are probably similarities among all these parasites, shysters and psychopaths.

And, oh yes, here’s a real doozie. “Beto” O’Rourke, who puts baby poop in his wife’s food, and does “Psycho” scenes when she’s in the shower. And fantasized about murdering children. These people are sick degenerates.

“Mayor Pete”? The one who criticized Trump for getting out of the Vietnam War, but didn’t criticize the war itself? And the warmongers in Washington (which he strives to be, if elected) who sent 58,000 Americans to their deaths for no good reason? Nothing to say about that.

Speaking of the warmongering psychopaths in Washington (which all those Democrats strive to be), there was apparently a “secret meeting” planned with Donald Trump and Afghan Taliban officials to be held at Camp David, but because of a suicide car bomb attack that caused the death of an American soldier, Trump and his minions cancelled the meeting. They were to have an agreement with the Taliban but the Taliban were reluctant because they don’t recognize the “stooge government” in Kabul. (What about the “stooge government” in Washington?)

Now, the American soldier who died as a result of the bombing did so for the same reason that all the other American soldiers died in Afghanistan or Iraq (and Vietnam, etc., etc.), because they shouldn’t have been over there in the first place. They have no place being there, and the U.S. government had no good reason to start either of those two wars over there.

As the aforementioned Laurence Vance has stated, the U.S. government can eliminate the risks involved in U.S. troops being in places where they do not belong: just get the hell out of there. It’s not complicated.

But Democrats are just as much warmongers and foreign interventionists as the Republicans. They both suck.

But I don’t know whether the bureaucrats of Washington really want to end that Afghanistan war that they started for no good reason, and, given the U.S. government’s record of false flags, war crimes and shenanigans in other countries, it wouldn’t surprise me if the recent car bombing was really a CIA false flag. Now, I’m not accusing anyone, just saying it wouldn’t surprise me.

If it was a false flag, then it would be because the bureaucrats really don’t want to leave Afghanistan. Just look at all the boondoggles for the American military contractors and construction contractors, and the CIA opium fields and all the profits with the drug trade. I mean, who would want to give that up? (The criminals and gangsters of Washington, that is.)

And then there’s Secretary of Belligerence State Mike Bombpeo on all the Sunday shows, Chinese phone books and all, giving lots of sickening propaganda. When he and John Bolton speak, I just assume they are lying, like the other warmongers of the U.S. government.

Speaking of the Sunday talk shows that I hear on Bloomberg Radio, I couldn’t believe all the propaganda and lies yesterday. Chuck Toady with “Meet the Press” and CBS Fake the Nation were the worst.

If the economy is good by a year from now and Trump hasn’t started any new wars that his awful minions Bombpeo and Bolton seem to want to do, and the Democrat candidate still wins the 2020 election, it would be because of so much propaganda in the news media, probably combined with the shutting down of alternative media that the “SJW”s want to do.

Either way, Republican or Democrat, Trump or Liawatha, it’s Soviet 2.0. Perhaps the Libertarian Partly might actually consider nominating a libertarian this time. Or perhaps not voting is the best solution.

Orwellian: Washington, DC Will Determine Who Has “Mental Illness”

Jon Rappoport has this excellent analysis of calls for a new agency to determine who is mentally ill or mentally unstable and thus may not have a gun. Once diagnosed with “mental illness,” psychiatrists will give these newly diagnosed “mentally ill” people psychiatric drugs, so that they probably WILL become violent! Doh! (Is there anyone more “mentally ill” than our typical Washington bureaucrat? Just askin’.)

The Epstein Case: Was/Is He a Nutso?

Paul Craig Roberts asks, “Was Epstein murdered in order to protect members of the elite? Was Epstein switched out by the Deep State and a dead person of similar appearance left in his place?”

It appears that Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged child sex trafficking ring has involved many, many high-profile people such as allegedly Bill Clinton and George Mitchell, as “clients” or “johns” or whatever word you want to use.

My theory is that Epstein started very early on in his alleged scheme to ensnare high-profile people into his child sex ring, and to use blackmail involving their sexual encounters with under-age people to keep the high-profile victims trapped in the scheme. I don’t even think the money is the main reason, but that he is (or was) a sicko who gets off on doing that to bigshots. Why? Who knows. Perhaps he was motivated by envy that those people were so successful. (Was he a leftist?) Perhaps it was just a sick power trip. (He wanted to “seed” the human race with his DNA?)

So, if he was switched and taken away, it would be because many of the high-profile people either are a part of or have connections to the so-called deep state, i.e. national security state. Perhaps he was taken away to be tortured by CIA or CIA-associated thugs to get the information as to where his blackmail material is located? If the “deep state” apparatchiks have been in on Epstein’s scheme, then I would guess that they came upon it later on, not that he began as himself a part of the “deep state” to blackmail high-profile people.

So I see comments on blogs and articles out there with people saying that the national security state is taking itself down, and that’s a good thing.

On Trump’s Solutions to Mass Shootings

Here is my latest article on Activist Post, On Trump’s Solutions to Mass Shootings:

August 6, 2019

More mass shootings again. In El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

So once again Donald Trump and his fellow politicians are turning to more fascist proposals to solve the issue of these young people shooting up places and killing people. More gun regulations, background checks and “Red Flag” laws, none of which will help to prevent the violent episodes.

The dysfunction going on now is mainly a result of government intrusions and government interventionism in the first place, so just how will more government intrusions and interventions solve any problems? They won’t. Bureaucrats will only make things worse, as they are now.

Why would we want to trust government agencies and their government databases to do background checks on people, when the bureaucrats and enforcers themselves are not entirely trustworthy and not particularly competent? The El Paso alleged shooter bought his gun(s) legally, and last year’s Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz also passed a background check.

The FBI were given a heads up by the Russian government on the Boston Marathon bombers, the Tsarnaevs, but the FBI did nothing with the information. So much for “Red Flag” laws.

But “Red Flag” laws will help disgruntled co-workers or ex-workers, or spouses going through nasty divorces, or neighbors who don’t like a particular neighbor, to report targeted individuals to the government or to the police.

We already have “Zero Tolerance” laws in the schools, in which teachers and staff report a kid to the police (not to the principal’s office, but police) who has carved a pastry into the shape of a gun or points his finger and says, “bang, bang.” And sheeple neighbors now report a lone child, playing outside or walking along the street, to the police and police arrest the kid’s mother at home for being “negligent.”

We have those things now, because society in Amerika is dysfunctional, irrational, and many people are quite ignorant and their critical thinking skills and common sense have been suppressed or punished by the authoritarian enforcement of political correctness in the schools.

Just read through any of John Whitehead’s columns from the Rutherford Institute, and you’ll get a good sense of the police state in the government schools and in Amerika.

Trump mentioned the Internet and video games in his press conference this week. What are we going to do, ban video games and censor the Internet? Big Tech SJWs are already censoring those they feel are “triggering” or are guilty of “hate,” mainly those whose political or social views the Big Tech censors disagree with. And we know how crazy some of those tech people are now.

So now in addition to censoring, the tech authorities will use “Red Flag” laws to report “suspicious” activity to the police, giving police the users’ IP addresses and access to their social media accounts, and so on. Get ready for The Purge, everyone.

But what is causing these young people to go postal at the government schools, at shopping malls or movie theaters? I’ve already discussed the connection between psychiatric drugs and these shootings. I know, the killer is responsible for his own actions, but the drugs are having the effect of numbing their judgments and self-control.

But police don’t or won’t “go there” because either they like Big Pharma’s exploiting people’s problems in the name of greedy profits, or, as was mentioned in this article regarding Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza, maybe police are like the state of Connecticut’s bureaucrats who refused to release Lanza’s medical records, denying a parents rights organization’s request “because ‘it would cause a lot of people to stop taking their medications’.”

And Donald Trump mentioned the video games, like taking them away will change anything.

In this article, I wrote about Adam Lanza:

Regarding Adam Lanza and his incessant video game playing, there are several articles online which seem to be distorting or exaggerating his use of violent video games. For instance, this Guardian article states that Lanza was obsessed with mass murder and listed only violent video games based only on some items police actually found in the Lanza home, while this Techdirt article clarifies that he also had non-violent video games such as Dance Dance Revolution, and it was that video with which the article claims Lanza actually was obsessed. This Hartford Courant op-ed agrees based on witness interviews that Lanza’s real obsession was for the non-violent video games, especially Dance Dance Revolution.

So, Adam Lanza was most obsessed with his non-violent video Dance Dance Revolution, but he didn’t exactly go into the Sandy Hook School and dance for the kids, did he? Nope.

And I also wondered whether Adam Lanza may have been “brainwashed,” like from video games:

connections between the recent mass killings and implications of government-infiltration of media and use of drugs to “trigger” violent behavior in people, some of whom have claimed no knowledge of their even having committed violent acts.

Which should not be too hard to fathom, by the way, given that we now know that the NSA has not only collected video gamers’ chats, buddylists and geolocations but also NSA agents themselves participate and role-play in games and discussions as a means of extracting personal information and metadata and recruiting informants, specifically in Xbox Live and World of Warcraft. We also know that governments have instilled their propaganda in these video games.

And I think Trump said something about video games “desensitizing” the kids and young adults to violence and murder. But what about the military? Since the early 1990s especially the U.S. military has gone over to the Middle East, bombing and shooting and mass killing, especially in Iraq, murdering or causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocents. And the death and destruction was revitalized when the George W. Bush started new wars against Iraq and Afghanistan, and to this day their drone bombers, and Obama’s drone bombers, and now Trump’s drone bombers continue to murder mostly innocent people.

Talk about “desensitized”! The U.S. military intentionally desensitizes and suppresses the consciences of military members.

And Trump also said something about looking at “mental illness.” Why do Trump and others want to disarm people who are supposedly “mentally ill” and make them defenseless? We already have sitting ducks in the “gun-free zone” schools and other mandatory “gun-free” places — why put targets on the backs of “mentally ill” people?

And who is to decide who has “mental illness”? Local law enforcement, some of whom are Iraq War vets and who have PTSD? Psychiatrists? Yeah, right. I would trust the average psychiatrist to determine who is mentally ill as far as I could throw him.

Like in the old Soviet Union (and the United State), those who criticize the Regime in Washington will be diagnosed as having a “mental illness,” as will those who continue to use correct-gendered pronouns, those who identify as Christian or conservative or those who homeschool their kids. You get the idea, and it’s not too far-fetched. We know how brainwashed many people are now in today’s culture of nonsense, irrationality and pathological political correctness.

But the police state in Amerika has grown exponentially especially since 9/11, with little children being terrorized by sicko perv molesters and gropers at the airports, and being made to fear every little thing. The government schools are terrorizing the kids into fearing that the end is near with climate change extinction. The schools are indoctrinating the kids to accept “transgender” as a normal aspect of life when it is no such thing, and the kids know this deep down.

The kids are intentionally being made by the government schools to be confused about gender and sexuality, they are being labeled with made-up diseases and conditions such as “ADHD,” “ADD,” “PhD,” and told they are “autistic,” when in fact they are just normal, growing kids. So, we have a lot of them, mainly boys, who are being tormented by an increasingly dysfunctional and corrupt society. This in addition to their brains being poisoned by pharmaceutical drugs such as Xanax and Zoloft and Adderall, and the vaccine adjuvants such as aluminum are also interfering with their normal brain development.

My conclusion is that government has played a large role in these societal problems. Government schools, government-Big Pharma colluding, government’s invasions of other countries for no good reason and murders of innocent foreigners, government’s own violence and intrusions into the lives and liberty of its own people in the United State of Amerka.

So, the solution includes getting rid of government schools. End the wars and occupations abroad and the police state at home, dismantle the national security state, and end the government’s support of the pharmaceutical industry. Those things would help us out a lot.

Trump’s Authoritarian Military Worship Day

You probably heard about Donald Trump’s military parade and all the authoritarian sheeple he had there cheering him on. Jacob Hornberger has a very good post on that. Among other things, he writes:

Americans today praise the signers of the Declaration as patriots. But I will guarantee you that their government didn’t consider them to be patriots. They considered them to be terrorists, criminals, and traitors. If the government had won, the rebels would have been long forgotten,

What about the British troops? Not surprisingly, the government exhorted the British colonists to support the troops. They pointed out what Trump pointed out yesterday — that it is the duty of the citizenry to support the troops because they are protecting the nation and the freedom of the citizenry.

And in fact, it has been estimated that about one-third of the British colonists did end up supporting the troops during the Revolution. They sided with their government and cheered the troops as they tried to put down the rebellion by killing the British citizens who were doing the rebelling.

The British revolutionaries, on the other hand, absolutely refused to support the troops. On the contrary, they chose to shoot and kill the troops. They wanted the troops to surrender and return to England so that they could establish their own nation, one that would not be a military nation like the one against which they were rebelling.

So, who were the real patriots — the ones who supported the troops or the ones who shot and killed the troops? In the movie The Patriot, which starred Mel Gibson, the answer was that the patriots were those who are willing to stand up to the wrongdoing of their own government, which sometimes means standing up to the government’s troops.

And I also have some thoughts on this.

In my view, it is a shame that so many people in America are bamboozled and duped by propaganda for decades now to “support the troops” regardless of all the criminal wars of aggression and violence wrought by U.S. military overseas, and for no good reason. The authoritarian nationalists continue to defend the murderous rampages of the U.S. military, such as in their recent acquittal of murder of the Navy SEAL Gallagher.

And the people on ditto-head radio are making me pull my hair out with their extreme cognitive dissonance. They are just like the leftists they constantly criticize: They LOVE government authority! Especially men in uniforms, like military and police. I think they literally get aroused by all this.

In my view, given what Trump-loving authoritarian neanderthal sheeple they are, if Rush Limbaugh, Dennis Prager, Sebastian Dorka and Sean Hannity were around at the time of the American Revolution, they would have reported on the rebels and turned them in to the “authorities.” Why? Because these loonies are nationalists. The people who were nationalists back then were the loyalists who were loyal to the regime.

And ignorant nationalists at that. They are also part of the Lincoln Cult, as Thomas DiLorenzo would put it. Just the other day I heard Sebastian Dorka say that 600,000 people died in the “Civil War” in the name of “freeing the slaves,” when that is just not true. They died in the name of restoring the centralized power apparatus in Washington. They died in the name of punishing secessionists who wanted to leave a union. They died in the name of being forcibly brought back into a union involuntarily that they wanted no part of.

And they died in the name of enshrining the imperial U.S. President Lincoln and all subsequent U.S. emperors. (Although JFK was beginning to break out of that mold, but the national security state’s assassination of Kennedy re-secured their authority over the people.)

In fact, James Bovard has an article now on the similarities between Lincoln and Trump. (Authoritarian sheeple love them both.)

And also, the conservatives and nationalists in Amerika should please shut up about Colin Kaepernick and his not liking a flag on a shoe that Nike was going to produce. “Aww, poor Colin Krappernick,” the ditto-heads whine, “he feels triggered by an early American flag…boo-hoo…”

Yet, these same nationalists are triggered if they see or hear about someone “desecrating” an American flag or engaged in flag-burning as a protest. Did you see Candace Owens’s tweet, belching out her anti-First Amendment tirade? “If I were President, the punishment for burning the U.S flag would be the renunciation of citizenship. No jail time, no fine— simply one year to liquidate your assets and get the hell out of our country.”

Talk about someone who does not understand why the First Amendment was written! And she responded to the Dear Leader, who tweeted the day before: “All in for Senator Steve Daines as he proposes an Amendment for a strong BAN on burning our American Flag. A no brainer!” (Talk about someone with a “no brainer.”)

So these are authoritarian nationalists and collectivists who worship a flag and who identify with a strong authoritarian State and its military. You can’t get much more un-American than that.

D-Day and the Greatest Generation (Of “Whoremongers”)

In a review of Mary Louise Roberts’s 2013 book, What Soldiers Do: Sex and the American GI in World War II France, Laurence Vance writes about the “Greatest Generation” of U.S. soldiers who invaded Normandy, France on “D-Day” and who “liberated” the French from Nazi occupation. Apparently, those U.S. soldiers were mainly motivated by their sexual desires. “Romance, prostitution, and rape.”

Here is an excerpt of the review:

What Soldiers Do begins with an introduction and ends with a conclusion. In each case, the port city of Le Havre in Normandy is mentioned. In the introduction we read that in 1945, a year after D-Day, thousands of American GIs in Le Havre were waiting for a boat home. The mayor of the city penned a letter to the American regional commander complaining that “the good citizens of his city were unable to take a walk in the park or visit the grave of a loved one without coming across a GI engaged in sex with a prostitute.” At night, “drunken soldiers roamed the street looking for sex, and as a result ‘respectable’ women could not walk alone.” “Scenes contrary to decency” were taking place “day and night.” In the conclusion we read that “GIs were emboldened to believe the nation was theirs for the taking.” In garrison towns like Le Havre, the GI’s “disregard for French social norms meant they had public sex with prostitutes and assaulted women on the streets.”

According to the author, What Soldiers Do “explores how sex was used to negotiate authority” between the United States and France. It focuses on the “three kinds of sex between GIs and French women during the US military presence: romance, prostitution, and rape.” These subjects make up the three sections of the book. The book concludes with almost 80 pages of notes, including many French sources, followed by a very detailed index.

Roberts explains that “with very few exceptions the GIs had no emotional attachment to the French people or the cause of their freedom.” The Normandy campaign was billed as “an erotic adventure.” Sexual fantasies about France motivated “the GI to get off the boat and fight.” However, “such fantasies also unleashed a veritable tsunami of male lust.” Once aroused, “the GI libido proved difficult to contain.” Roberts maintains that “sex was fundamental to how the US military framed, fought, and won the war in Europe.” She contends that “this book presents GI sexual conduct as neither innocent of power nor unimportant in effect.” Military historians, including Stephen Ambrose, “have largely ignored the sexual habits of American soldiers.”

Of course, the way I see it, there wouldn’t have been a World War II and a rise of a Hitler had Woodrow Wilson not decided to needlessly take the U.S. into World War I which extended that war and caused all sorts of further problems.
