On the Choice Between Two Anti-Freedom Fascist/Socialists

Many conservatives, Republicans and libertarians are saying that we had better vote for Donald Trump or the whole country is going to be a third-world hell-hole, and many liberals, Democrats and progressives are saying that we had better vote for Joe Biden or the whole place will be ruled by white supremacists, racists, nazis, etc.

Well, they’re all wrong, and I wrote this post in February 2014 that I will repost today, and thought you might find it of interest. (The one video included is no longer there, and there might be one or two links that don’t work.)

Hmmm. Which Lying Shyster Should I Vote For This Time?

February 2, 2014

Some people seem to think that I’m a real drag when it comes to my criticisms of society, America’s decline and elections. There are those who look forward to the next election so they can go to the polls really believing they will make a difference.

Uh-uh. You’re just wasting your time. And if you want to continue living in a fantasy world, that’s up to you.

Liberty activist Judy Morris has this blog post titled, “Voting Doesn’t Matter Because All Elections Are Controlled by R and D Big Money, Big Banksters, Big Corporations and Big Defense Contractors.” And she goes on explaining just how these elections don’t matter, how democracy is a majority voting to make use of the State’s police powers to take other people’s stuff, how the two major parties in control shut out challengers to the status quo, and how the corporations and fat cats are really buying the elections. But then she goes on to make suggestions on changing campaign funding laws and encouraging support for third parties. So she’s being very realistic until the very last three or four paragraphs, which just didn’t make sense to me.

I especially liked Ms. Morris’s comparing Dinesh D’Souza to the billionaires the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson, George Soros et al. D’Souza has recently been attacked by the fascist Obama DOJ for campaign finance violations because of a mere amount of $20,000. Yet, the Kochs and Adelson and their hack organizations threw tens of millions of dollars down the drain to fund the loser, Willard Romney. Obviously, the only reason Obama’s corrupt and criminal DOJ is going after D’Souza is because of D’Souza’s film 2016 on Obama.

Morris writes:

By law, an individual can only contribute $2,500 to a candidate. Even if ordinary folks could afford a $2,500 campaign contribution to a candidate, which they can’t, the lion’s share of political money comes from PAC’s, special interests, banksters, defense contractors etc. and these are the folks who own and control the RNC and DNC machines.

While the Huffington Post reported that the 2012 presidential election cost $2 billion,Politico reported that the cost of the 2012 presidential and congressional elections was $6 billion, here. Open Secrets, an organization that specifically tracks political money, also reported that the 2012 presidential and congressional elections cost $6 billion, here.

It’s clearly evident that the rich and powerful hijacked and now own our election system. The RNC and DNC machines are nothing but money laundering machines for special interests.

If an individual voter can only contribute a maximum of $2,500 to a candidate and if Denesh D’Souza is being prosecuted for his role in a puny $20,000 campaign finance fiasco, how is it that the Koch Brothers can legally pony up a staggering $400 million and casino magnet Adelson can pony up $100 million to influence election outcomes?

Most recently, this corporate financial influence in elections can be seen in the ObamaCare and anti-gun rights propaganda being pushed by the Soviet NFL for the upcoming Super Bowl. Here is Alex Jones on that:

But for elections, one of Judy Morris’s solutions is to “ban all fund raising by anybody except the candidates and they should only be allowed to raise money from individual voters.” But all that has some First Amendment problems, because really individuals and groups have a right to spend or waste their money on whatever they want.

But Ms. Morris’s suggestion to vote for third parties is not practical, as those parties or candidates who are anti-State and pro-freedom do not seem to get the attention they deserve or are silenced by the ones in control of the process. The ones in control are those members of the U.S. CONgress and all their minions all across America who love power and are NOT going to give it up voluntarily. They will not vote to loosen election laws to make life easier for third parties or anti-Establishment candidates.

And the Rulers in control, such as “Speaker” Boehner and Mitch McConjob and others will not vote or support policies which advance freedom. Sooner or later, people are really going to have to accept the truth of the matter.

And regarding the idea of using elections to reverse the trend of ever-growing government intrusiveness and criminality, I wrote in my March, 2010 article, November, 2010: More Rearranging of Deck Chairs (with a follow up just recently here),

When Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, the “conservative” president not only didn’t cut entire cabinet-level departments as promised, he added three new cabinet-level departments. After cutting taxes, a year later Reagan signed what was then to be America’s biggest tax increase. Reagan also signed one deficit-laden budget after another, and during Reagan’s presidency, the National Debt skyrocketed along with all the regulations and bureaucracy he promised to cut.

Following the 1994 “Republican Revolution,” the federal government continued to grow out of control, and, after 2000, the younger President George W. Bush’s “compassionate conservatism” – i.e. more socialist redistribution of wealth schemes – and expanding the military industrial complex only fed Leviathan much more.

Then, in November of 2010, mainly because of the passage of ObamaCare the voters elected many new Republicans to Congress. Some of the candidates pledged to repeal the Affordable (sic) Care Act, a.k.a. ObamaCare.

Well, it’s 2014 now, and have they repealed ObamaCare?

However, we do have a proposal now by three U.S. senators to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare.

Ooooh, another Republican plan to replace socialism and fascism with fascism and socialism.

Senators Richard Burr, Orrin Hatch and Tom Coburn present several aspects of their own version of government-controlled medical care. But it is not a free market health care plan. It just changes a few aspects to make it a little less intrusive, a little less socialist on the surface but the government still controls things by telling individuals and businesses what they may or may not do.

You see, with the unrealistic conservatives, Republicans and “libertarians,” political compromise is the solution. Not the solution to better medical care, just the solution to help politicians get themselves reelected. Sadly, the naive and the gullible just can’t seem able to get that.

So, as far as this new Republican plan to replace ObamaCare with the same thing but with the deck chairs rearranged, many conservative and Republican sheeple are all for it. For example, the clueless conservatives of the New York Post editorial board conclude, “GOP candidates heading into their campaigns this fall now have a genuine alternative that would offer universal ­coverage.”

“Universal coverage”? Is that even possible? Who the hell but socialists and communists talks about “universal coverage”? (Is there even universal coverage in Cuba? In Venezuela? England? Was there in the old Soviet Union?)

Avik Roy of Forbes says this is the “most credible plan yet,” when no, it is NOT the “most credible plan.” The most credible plan is to get the government out of medical care completely! Roy also says that this new Republican plan raises taxes, and “that’s a good thing.” Doh!

And there’s a congressman from Georgia who is running for the U.S. Senate, and he says that his background as a physician gives him credibility in going on to help to repeal ObamaCare. Yeah, that attitude sure helped with Sen. Bill Frist, MD. And what has Rand Paul, MD done? Nuttin’!

Laurence Vance explains the Republicans’ history of support for government-controlled medical care. Vance concludes by noting that the real constitutional alternative to government health care is medical freedom. And that’s it.

And Jacob Hornberger explains even more specifically what a genuine free market in medical care would be. That means repealing ALL the socialist and fascist governmental intrusions into the lives of the people. (And such repeals would apply in every other area in which these greedy, corrupt government bureaucrats intrude themselves. Everything!)

But worse, and more depressing is that this new RepublicanCare is dependent on 2014 elections, or more likely dependent on 2016 elections. By that time, America will already be a full third world country. Get rid of damn ObamaCare NOW, for crying out loud!

So, as we saw from the 2010 elections, elections don’t matter. And legislation doesn’t matter. It’s all a scam.

Hmmm. By the way, let’s take a look at the aforementioned U.S. Senators Burr, Hatch and Coburn campaign finances for 2009-2014 as given by OpenSecrets.org:

Not that any of that means anything. So people need to face it that these elections really are meaningless.

As Murray Rothbard observed,

…first, left-liberals, in power, make a Great Leap Forward toward collectivism; then, when, in the course of the political cycle, four or eight years later, conservatives come to power, they of course are horrified at the very idea of repealing anything; they simply slow down the rate of growth of statism, consolidating the previous gains of the Left, and providing a bit of R&R for the next liberal Great Leap Forward….

And these elections are meaningless because when we can dig up one or two “good” people who mean well, when they get in there to “repeal” stuff, they will not really repeal anything. They get addicted to the power that such governmental authority gives them. They now get to tell people what to do, and have their orders enforced by armed goons, and they love it. Better than drugs.

I hope that soon people will really see what a sham central planning and federalism are. The whole scheme is really a criminal scheme in which some people use the armed power of the State to take from others, and that’s it! And it is an apparatus with which the psychopaths amongst us satisfy their cravings for power and control over others. If you want to believe otherwise, then I guess you prefer to be gullible.

Ron Paul Video Censored by YouTube: “Covid Whistleblowers Expose Narrative As ‘Total Fraud’”

YouTube has taken down a discussion by Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams, titled, “Covid Whistleblowers Expose Narrative As ‘Total Fraud’.” Luckily, someone has uploaded the discussion to BitChute. YouTube is in the tank for Big Pharma and the fascists at YouTube can go “F” themselves, as far as I’m concerned. They suck.

Robert Wenzel at Target Liberty wrote:

YouTube censored Wednesday’s “Ron Paul Liberty Report “discussion of two former insiders challenging parts of the coronavirus narrative.

The episode featured a discussion of comments by former Chief Science Officer at pharma giant Pfizer, Dr. Mike Yeadon, and a former official at the CDC, William Crews.

You will be astounded that it was censored by YouTube.

And be sure to listen to the end where Dr. Paul explains why we are heading in the direction of fascism rather than the old Soviet-style socialism.

Wenzel included a screenshot of the message that included telling Dr. Paul that the video violated their “Community Guidelines.” Hmm, I guess telling the truth violates YouTube’s “Community Guidelines.” Who knew?

This is the video, now on BitChute:

COVID Scamdemic: Was It Really Planned?

Washington Post fossil Bob Woodward is now suggesting that Donald Trump “played down” the COVID-1984 scamdemic. Trump responded that he didn’t want to cause panic, because there was no reason to panic. He was right.

NIH bureaucrat Fauci also downplayed the virus and had written this article in late February, in which he wrote that “the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza…” He was right.

Several studies reinforced that assertion, including a Stanford study concluding that COVID-1984 has “an infection fatality rate of 0.12-0.2%,” and a University of Miami study in April.

But while Trump rightfully “played down” the so-called virus to avoid panic, there WAS panic incitement, hysteria and fear-mongering promoted by government apparatchiks and their media groupies.

Besides for TV ratings and selling failing newspapers, some of the propagandists terrorized the sheeple so the masses would fear going to the polls on November 3rd to vote in person, out of fear of getting what really is a flu or bad cold for most people but made into Ebola or the Plague by the panic-inciters.

Why would they do this? Perhaps because scaring people into wanting mail-in voting in order to make it easier to cheat, so the ballot handlers can mark up Trump ballots and then have an excuse to throw them out. (The very gullible will probably think that’s far-fetched.)

Do you believe the fear porn? “Infectious,” “spreading,” ” social distancing,” “droplets.” Over and over and over and over. “More testing” (to achieve more false positives), “contact tracing” (to invade people’s private lives better). This is nuts.

The hysteria was further reinforced by Neil Ferguson‘s bogus modeling predicting 2 million deaths from COVID-1984, that was all exposed as a fraud. Yet, the media continue to keep the hysteria going.

Keep on believing, folks. Be a True Believer in the fraud and scam.

The virus, similar to the flu virus each season, affects the same groups of people that the flu affects. Already very sick elderly people, those with serious preexisting conditions and illnesses, and the obese. (Take better care of yourselves, lose weight maybe?)

Jon Rappoport linked to this article from Time a few months ago, describing the 2017-18 flu season and how the hospitals were overrun with patients, overflowing into waiting rooms, etc.

Now, we don’t act hysterically and irrationally each flu season out of fear of getting the flu, do we? Again, if you think my “downplaying” the COVID hysteria is out of line, then you are too influenced by propaganda, and need to be de-programmed. Get to it.

So, to make COVID worse than it was, to continue the hysteria and panic, the wacko governors intentionally forced COVID patients into the nursing homes without separating the COVID patients from the other residents. Those governors need to be charged criminally with murder, or at least manslaughter.

And with the panic incitement, part of what we had was terrorized sheeple reacting to having cold or flu symptoms, thinking it was the Plague or Black Death and that they 100% were going to DIE, rushing to the hospitals, and the extremely incompetent “doctors” in the hospitals putting them on ventilators even though the panic-stricken didn’t need to be put on ventilators, and it was the ventilators that made these people worse off and in some cases killed them.

Dr. Mercola wrote of a whistleblower nurse in New York hospitals who explained how the incompetent “doctors,” mainly the younger ones, the residents, tampered with ventilators and had zero bedside manner, no compassion.

Besides whatever actual deaths have occurred, government bureaucrats have been cheating, making things up and intentionally exaggerating the death counts.

The corrupt CDC changed its guidelines for all the nation’s doctors and hospitals to mark as a “COVID-19” death anyone who had died of other illnesses such as heart disease or kidney disease but happened to test positive for coronavirus, even though they died of the other illness. Coronavirus “Task Force” apparatchik Dr. Deborah Birx confirmed this cheating and lying.

On their “provisional death counts” weekly updates page, the CDC admits: “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”

So this “200,000” deaths of COVID-19 thus far is a lie. The real number is 12,000 up to now. The rest of the people died of whatever illness they already had but happened to have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The whole thing is made up. There was never any need for illegal government-ordered lockdowns and fascists ordering businesses closed without due process, ordering people to stay inside, mask-wearing orders, “social distancing,” no need to cancel the Boston Marathon, sports events, the St. Patrick’s Day parades, Fourth of July, the symphony orchestra concerts, no need for “remote learning” in the schools, sticking long swabs up people’s nostrils only to get false positives and false negatives, invasive Orwellian contact tracing, no need for ANY of this fascist society-destroying crap!

I know, we don’t want to believe that our government rulers would intentionally lie to us, or their complicit media stenographers as well. But, that is what they have been doing.

In a subsequent post, I will attempt to tie all this in with the police killings of unarmed black men and riots, the arson and burning down businesses, and the election cheating going on now.

KGB Defector Explains in 1985 the Four Stages of Marxist Revolution, Going on Now in USSA

Robert Wenzel writes:

I have often stated that it is Marxists-Leninists, skilled in power strategy and tactics, that are behind the curtains of the current unrest in America.

Here is remarkable detail of what that strategy looks like.

This video clip is G. Edward Griffin’s 1985 interview with KGB defector, Yuri Bezmenov, who explains the four stages of the Marxist-Leninist strategy for taking over a country from within.

Got that, this interview took place 35 years ago? You will be amazed and what he says and how it parallels what is currently going on in the United States.

And he comments:

You can also see why I warn that those who side with BLM, etc. will not see things turn out for them in a positive fashion in the end. We are in the midst of a major league power game and those without deep knowledge of what is going on are dupes that will be dispensed with when they are no longer needed.

I hasten to add I doubt Russia is behind it. It is the Marxist-Lenninst brew perhaps with some techniques picked up from the old USSR. But it is homemade Marxist-Leninists who were able to take over key sectors of the US structure, in particular government-funded education, with help from the Frankfurt school and postmodernists. But they are on the advance now. The world is a complex place and it can not be known for sure how things will play out. It is not an easy game they are playing especially in a major complex country like the US where resistance and counterrevolution can sprout up from many different directions. That said, it is remarkable what the Marxist-Leninists have accomplished so far in America.

Toward the end of the interview in the video, Bezmenov notes that the Marxist academics, the college professors who promote Marxism to help advance the “Revolution,” the media propagandists and useful idiot intellectuals, are no longer needed after the heist of the society is successful and they will be “lined up against the wall and shot.” (Those are Bezmenov’s words, not mine.)

Here is a comprehensive article from Wikipedia on mass killings under communist regimes.

And when you don’t conform, obey and comply with the Regime, and if you criticize the Regime and express any signs of independent thinking whatsoever, if they don’t kill you they will declare you insane and throw you into psychiatric prison.

Another 9/11 Anniversary

I wrote this post a year ago on the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks in 2001. So, now it is the 19th anniversary today and I am reposting this. It gives information that, if you are still very young, your parents and teachers probably didn’t give you about 9/11, and if you are older it gives you information that the brain-dead, zombie government-stenographer mainstream news media also didn’t give us, and they still don’t.

Post from a year ago:

Today is the 18th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center, the Pentacon, and in Pennsylvania. Where was I on that day? Well, I was here in this same apartment sitting at my table doing some writing and my father (now deceased) called at around 10 am saying that their trip that they were going to go on that day was canceled and he told me why. Hmm.

The government’s propaganda began immediately on that day and after. 99% of the news media were the White House press spokesmen. There was no discussion of the attackers stated motives, or the history of U.S. government and military’s invasions, bombings and occupations of the Middle East in the 10 years prior to that time. Anyone who did mention those things was labeled “Anti-America,” or “blaming America” for the attacks. Sean Hannity has been especially bad in that regard ever since that time. He is the worst of the worst as far as apparatchiks for the national security state are concerned. I just thought I’d mention that.

However, given that Hannity and all the other radio ditto-heads are accepting of the idea that actual U.S. government FBI, CIA etc. abused their powers including FISA spying in the Russiagate fiasco, maybe now some of these obedient worshipers of the national security state can at least consider the possibility that the official 9/11 narrative isn’t what the government has been telling us for 18 years. (But, I am not holding my breath.)

So, I’m sure that a lot of people reading this post will just skim it and not really take it seriously or click on any of the links for further information. This is because they are satisfied with what the government and its spokespeople of the mainstream media have been telling us since September 11, 2001. All these things they haven’t heard about must be merely whack-job “conspiracy theory” and all that. But there are still some people who are open to the truth.

In the years prior to the attacks, Congressman Ron Paul had several times warned that the U.S. government’s interventionist policies and war that it started against Iraq and elsewhere and Iraqi sanctions would cause blowback and retaliation within our shores. (And the response? Crickets.)

Addendum: For information on the U.S. government’s pre-9/11 sanctions on Iraq throughout the 1990s and their effects, see Jacob Hornberger, Sanctions: the cruel and brutal war against the Iraqi people, and James Bovard, Iraqi sanctions and American intentions: blameless carnage?

It’s amazing just how brainwashed so many people can be by daily propaganda, watching the TV news, listening to chickenhawk warmonger conservative talk radio, and so forth. “Al Qaeda.” “Osama bin Laden,” and “Islamic” were words that people heard over and over and over, but they rarely heard about Saudi Arabia and blowback.

I don’t know what else to write so I will post links to some new and old articles on the subject, and maybe some videos.

James Bovard on the 9/11 Commission, a bootlicking national disgrace.

Paul Sperry from the New York Post writes this week how Robert Mueller helped Saudi Arabia cover up its role in 9/11.

Related to that, a year ago “28 Pages,” which documents Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11, had an exclusive article on FBI telling a counterterrorism agent not to help 9/11 victims build their case against Saudi Arabia because that might harm U.S.-Saudi relations. (Doh!)

Prior to 9/11 the FBI were told by the Bush Administration to lay off the bin Laden family and Saudi connections to terrorism.

Paul Craig Roberts writes today:

Over the years I have reported the findings of scientists, engineers, and architects that indicate that the official story is false.I had an open mind for two reasons.One is that having been an engineering student, I could tell the difference from a building falling down from asymmetrical structural damage and a building blowing up.The other is that having been involved in policy issues in Washington for a quarter century I knew that such a humiliating defeat suffered by the world’s only superpower at the hands of a few Muslim terrorists would have brought instant demands from the White House, Congress, and media for investigation into how every aspect of the American national security state failed simultaneously on one morning.Instead the White House resisted the 9/11 families demands for an investigation for one year and never delivered a forensic investigation.Instead, the country was given a 9/11 Commission Report that was merely the government’s official story of what happened.No heads rolled.No one was fired or even reprimanded.To hold no one accountable for such a massive failure and humiliating defeat is not a believable response if the official 9/11 story is true.

Washington’s Blog: Everything we’re doing now was planned before 9/11. And Washington asks, Will the mainstream media ever report on the numerous admitted false flag terror attacks? Many examples given. And another post about U.S. government’s foreknowledge and aiding and abetting the terrorists.

The Guardian: Osama bin Laden had ties to CIA

David Ray Griffin asks, Where is the evidence that Osama bin Laden had responsibility in 9/11? (Remember, Hannity et al. have been complaining ad nauseam, and rightly, that people accusing Trump of “Russia collusions” do not have any evidence, and so on. Evidence is important.) The FBI’s 10 most wanted list included Osama bin Laden because of the African embassy and USS Cole bombings, but NOT because of 9/11 because they had no evidence linking the two. Further info from the Muckraker Report. Read Griffin’s book, Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive?

In 2009 the Daily Mail asked, Has Osama bin Laden been dead for 7 years?

An early 2002 Dan Rather CBS News report on bin Laden’s serious illness:

A December, 2001 Fox News story, still online: Bin Laden already dead.

Of course, how could Osama bin Laden have been killed and thrown out to sea by SEAL Team 6 in 2011 if bin Laden had already died in 2001 or 2002? Paul Craig Roberts again with some questions.

Another question to ask is what caused the helicopter crash in Afghanistan that killed several SEAL Team 6 members who were involved in the Osama bin Laden “killing” just a couple months before that.

And Paul Joseph Watson on the Bin Laden fable shortly after he was “killed” in 2011. While Steve Watson explains the U.S. government’s history of fake bin Laden tapes.

Former CIA asset Susan Lindauer, a whistleblower who was railroaded and labeled a psychiatric case by USGov, explains more truth about 9/11, and the missing security tapes for the World Trade Center.

Here is an interview in which Lindauer tells about her experiences:

James Corbett with an hour-long discussion on who was really behind the 9/11 attacks:

And here is a video documentary from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth explaining the evidence that explosions brought down the World Trade Center, and not the fire caused by planes crashing into the buildings:

I admit it. I’m a “truther.” That’s because the truth is important. And as the late Justin Raimondo wrote, the opposite of a “truther” is a “liar.”
