Is This Why Otto Warmbier Was Killed ???

Please read this, and then decide for yourself:

Disposable Americans

We are now disposable (i.e., intended to be used once, or until no longer useful, and then thrown away):

Disposable Americans shows the impact of extreme capitalism on children; on the poor and the sick and the elderly; on people of color; on women; on workers, especially young Americans; and on all average Americans, including the middle-class and those just above and below, who make up  90 percent of us, and who have become increasingly disposable to the minority at the top of the wealth distribution.

Note well that "our" governments and the corporations we charter are directly responsible for this situation. If we want this to change, We The People must take responsibility for MAKING things change.


When do we start, and can it be done without violence? What do you think?

Should Illinois Be Dissolved ???

More bad news from the Land of Lincoln:

Illinois is like Venezuela now, a fiscally broken state that has lost its will to live, although for the moment, we still have enough toilet paper.

But before we run out of the essentials, let's finally admit that after decade upon decade of taxing and spending and borrowing, Illinois has finally run out of other people's money.

Those "other people" include taxpayers who've abandoned the state. And now Illinois faces doomsday.

So as the politicians meet in Springfield this week for another round of posturing and gesturing and blaming, we need a plan.

And here it is:

Dissolve Illinois. Decommission the state, tear up the charter, whatever the legal mumbo-jumbo, just end the whole dang thing.

We just disappear. With no pain. That's right. You heard me.

The best thing to do is to break Illinois into pieces right now. Just wipe us off the map. Cut us out of America's heartland and let neighboring states carve us up and take the best chunks for themselves.

EXCELLENT IDEA !!!

But there is one big problem - who would want it? There's nothing there except massive debt and a LOT of unemployed people.

All states eventually may face this dilemma. It's time to realize that the federal government has allowed this country to be strip mined and gutted to such an extent that it no longer can function ... yet STILL all they seem to be able to get done is to waste more money on the military and to satisfy the demands of the Israelis.

Here's my alternative plan - stop ALL military spending, cut off ALL support for Israel, and START fixing the United States. NOW !!!

Nothing less will do.

Bring Back Our Constitution

Here is the most important argument before us today:

The president, following a practice of his predecessors, has appropriated and further delegated the war-making power - which belongs to Congress alone. This has created a constitutionally impermissible condition where the power to declare war has passed into the hands of those responsible to wage war. 

There is no faster route to destruction of our republic than the path we are currently upon, where unelected Pentagon officials have been ceded a constitutional power reserved for the Congress.

It's alarming that this argument is being made ONLY by a few former members of Congress, such as Dennis Kucinich, and by a small minority of current members, such as Senator Rand Paul. "Our" Congress appears to be a wholly owned subsidiary of the military-industrial-banking-information-prison complex and the nation of Israel, neither of which has any respect for our Constitution or laws.

Bring back our Constitution, or our nation shall perish. And DO NOT allow these clowns to amend or replace it. It can work just fine as is if they would let it.

Inches From A New World War ???

This is your fault, Clinton Democrats. You created this, and if our species is plunged into a new world war or extinction via nuclear holocaust, it will be your fault. You knuckle-dragging, vagina hat-wearing McCarthyite morons made this happen.

& & & & & & & &

Clintonists have been working tirelessly since the election to manufacture these new Cold War tensions. Stephen Cohen, easily America’s foremost authority on US-Russia relations, has warned again and again that the political pressures being placed on the Trump administration to maintain escalations with Russia without conceding an inch has placed our species in a situation that is in some ways even more dangerous than those we faced at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. If Kennedy had had to negotiate that crisis while being pressured by his entire country to keep escalating tensions with the USSR without yielding an inch, there is no way any terrestrial life would have existed beyond 1962. The Clintonists (along with their neocon buddies on the other side of the aisle) are responsible for creating those pressures.

I doubt truer words ever were written.

But here's the part I don't get - once the Russian missiles were removed from Cuba, why didn't the Pentagon get their nuclear war with Russia? Don't say "because they got the Vietnam War instead", because that was a poor substitute for what they really wanted and have never stopped wanting - world domination.

Our Corrupt Political System

Handel beat Ossoff. You can read about it here:

http://www.politico.com/interactives/2017/georgia-special-election-results-2017-ossoff-handel-race/

Some observations:

(1) US Representatives represent their districts. No money from outside the district should have been allowed in this election, and certainly not $50 million.

(2) Why should this have been a more valid referendum on Trump than the fact he won the presidential election?

The Republic is dead. Long live The Empire.

Cut Him Open Already

An Ohio coroner, abiding by family wishes, has performed an external examination instead of a full autopsy on the body of the US student who was held prisoner in North Korea for 17 months and sent home in a coma.

The Hamilton County coroner’s office was conferring with doctors at a Cincinnati hospital who treated Otto Warmbier, 22, before reaching any conclusions about his death a day earlier, investigator Daryl Zornes said.

Investigators were reviewing radiological images and awaiting additional medical records requested by the coroner, Zornes said.

He declined to estimate how long it would take for the coroner’s office to complete its inquiry. Preliminary autopsy findings had been expected on Tuesday or Wednesday.

There was no immediate word from the family about why relatives declined an autopsy, which may have shed more light on the cause of the neurological injuries that left him in a coma.

The US "Health" Racket

The health insurance industry, for the most part, is the Mob painted over with a veneer of legitimacy. They're a protection racket. The Mob got people to pay by offering "protection" for your restaurant or store, and would burn it down if you didn't pay up. With the insurance industry, your body is the store, and as all flesh is inevitably weak, your store will eventually burn down, taking your financial stability with it unless you pay the insurance middleman in full. Nice health you got there, be a shame if something happened to it. That's only if they don't turn down your claim because of a typo on your claim form, which is hardly rare. I had ICU nurses telling me insurance horror stories that made one wistful for the ringing sound of guillotines in the town square.

Does War Make Us Secure ???

Over the past several weeks, US military actions within Syria have been less and less ISIS-centric, with a handful of operations targeting Shi’ite militias in southern Syria, and even shooting down a Syrian government aircraft over the weekend.

This isn’t just the US idly getting into one-off fights in the course of a war they’re already fighting in Syria, but rather is reflective of a push by White House officials, with multiple National Security Council members looking at the Syrian War less as a fight against ISIS and more as a chance to pick a fight with Iran.

The US "National Security Council" is mis-named. They ought to be called the "Israeli Security Council", since they continually put Israel's interests ahead of our own.

And the US Congress ought to be renamed the "Israeli piggy bank and chief enabler".

War in general does not make us more secure. And war for the benefit of Israel definitely makes us INSECURE.

Rabbi Wants To Poison Palestinian Water ???

The foreign ministry of the Palestinian Authority (PA), Sunday, demanded the arrest of a Jewish Rabbi, who called on Israeli settlers to poison water used by Palestinians in hundreds of towns and villages across the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian national office for the defense of land and resistance of settlements warned of the dangers and consequences of such calls.

In its weekly report, it explained that Rabbi Shlomo Mlmad, the chairman of the so-called Council of Rabbis in West Bank settlements, called on settlers to poison Palestinians through their water supply, which came to light by the Israeli organization ‘Breaking the Silence’.

Group member Yehuda Shaul said, according to WAFA, that the aim behind poisoning water in the West Bank is to push Palestinians out of their towns and cities in order to allow settlers to take over Palestinian lands.

Signs Of Imperial Decline

Here is a GREAT essay by Charles Hugh Smith:

Identifying the tell-tale signs of Imperial decay and decline is a bit of a parlor game. The hubris of an increasingly incestuous and out-of-touch leadership, dismaying extremes of wealth inequality, self-serving, avaricious Elites, rising dependency of the lower classes on free Bread and Circuses provided by a government careening toward insolvency due to stagnating tax revenues and vast over-reach–these are par for the course of self-reinforcing Imperial decay.

Sir John Glubb listed a few others in his seminal essay on the end of empires The Fate of Empires, what might be called the dynamics of decadence:

(a) A growing love of money as an end in itself.

(b) A lengthy period of wealth and ease, which makes people complacent. They lose their edge; they forget the traits (confidence, energy, hard work) that built their civilization.

(c) Selfishness and self-absorption.

(d) Loss of any sense of duty to the common good.

Glubb included the following in his list of the characteristics of decadence:

— an increase in frivolity, hedonism, materialism and the worship of unproductive celebrity (paging any Kardashians in the venue…)

— a loss of social cohesion

— willingness of an increasing number to live at the expense of a bloated bureaucratic state

Historian Peter Turchin, whom I have often excerpted here, listed three disintegrative forces that gnaw away the fibers of an Imperial economy and social order:

1. Stagnating real wages due to oversupply of labor

2. overproduction of parasitic Elites

3. Deterioration of central state finances

Hypocritical Californians Build Their Own "Trump's Wall""

Here is their "rationale":

Caltrans is building a taller, stronger wall in San Jose to stop homeless individuals from returning to an encampment.

Caltrans has repeatedly cleaned up the large encampment under I-280, but the homeless keep returning.

While this new solution has some homeowners pleased, it is generating a lot of anger in the community.

Laura Nunez, who has lived on Macredes Avenue in San Jose most of her life, said everything changed on her street when homeless people began using the rickety chain link fence at the end of the block as a doorway to their encampments along I-280.

“Every time Caltrans would come out and repair it ... as soon as they left they cut a hole in it and they just use that ... that was their main access point to go in and out,” said Nunez. “We’ve had to live with their garbage. We’ve had to live with drug paraphernalia. The kids haven’t been able come out to play.”

Most Americans Are NOT Zionists

An unprecedented poll reveals the gaping void between American identification with Israel and the official positions taken by both major political parties.

A majority of American adults – 70.3 percent – do not consider themselves Zionists when defined as "A Zionist is a person who believes in the development and protection of a Jewish nation in what is now Israel." Only 24.9 percent say, "I consider myself a Zionist" while 4.8% provided other responses.

http://original.antiwar.com/smith-grant/2017/06/19/poll-americans-arent-zionists/

So ... why are we allowing Zionists to control our foreign policy, destroy sovereign nations in the Middle East, and drag us into conflicts which risk nuclear war with Russia?

I'll say it again ... Israel does not need our help. If what they are doing is G-d's will, He will make it happen, regardless of what we do or don't. And there is NOTHING in the New Testament which says that Christians should do anything in these conflicts except to keep out of His way.

Let me remind you again of the order of battle at Armageddon:

On the side of GOOD:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Revelation 19:11-14 KJV

On the side of EVIL:

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Revelation 19:19-20 KJV

The dead in Christ who were sleeping in the grave will be raptured when the final trumpet blows. Since this will occur before the Battle of Armageddon, it's possible they will be part of "the armies which were in heaven". But the Bible does not say this directly.

Therefore, it appears that every LIVING person at the battle (with the exception of Jesus) will be fighting on the side of EVIL. This includes the US Army, the US Navy, the US Air Force, the US Marine Corps, all NATO forces, and anyone else foolish enough to join the beast, the false prophet, and the kings of the earth ... and this includes ISIS and the Zionists.

We are being deceived into thinking that the battle between the US and ISIS is a battle of good vs. evil, when according to the Bible it represents two faces of the same evil being drawn into the battle of Armageddon.

All earthly forces are evil, including those who call themselves "Zionists". Get this through your head.

Do NOT take the mark, do NOT worship the image, do NOT go to this battle, and do NOT support those who do.

National Bird = Skynet

Yesterday I watched part of National Bird, a movie about the US killer drone program. You can read a bit about it here, and you can watch it on Netflix:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2017/06/national-bird.html

I like Errol Morris, but he has a talent for boring you in the first ten minutes (or less) of his movies, and then keeping up the lack of excitement for the next hour and a half. If you can make it through all of National Bird in one sitting, you're far more patient than I am.

The movie describes an information gathering and human termination system which is world wide. It can find anyone, anywhere and kill them any time of the day or night. Maybe it doesn't work yet in the BRICS countries, but it will once they let it in ... or construct one of their own.

Another thing the movie makes clear is that the system's top-level controllers don't give a damn about humanity. They kill alleged terrorists, innocent bystanders, and civilians of all ages and stripes, especially unarmed military aged boys and men. And they also devour their own operators (e.g., drone pilots and those who track the targets), many of whom suffer from PTSD during and following their tours of duty.

The "national bird" system IS Skynet. And it doesn't require the machines to become self aware. Its high-level controllers already have proven themselves to be ready, willing, and able to target and kill humanity with or without the assistance of a malevolent AI.

And unless we stop them, they will.

Epistemology is defined as the theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope. Epistemology is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion.

Apartheid Is Alive And Doing Well

What is apartheid?

  • a policy or system of segregation or discrimination on grounds of race
  • segregation on grounds other than race

Here is an example:

Israeli bulldozers flattened a village inhabited by the ancient Palestinian Bedouins, a tribe that has lived on the land for thousands of years. Israeli authorities have systematically run the indigenous Bedouins off of their land to pave the way for Jewish-only settlements.

Source - http://www.mintpressnews.com/israel-demolishes-palestinian-village-114th-time-seven-years/228991/

Fortunately, Israel is no longer the UN's "punching bag", so these Bedouins will just have to disappear ... up in smoke, perhaps.

By the way, did I mention that Nikki Haley is an idiot?

The Young Have Become The Old

A new study conducted by researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore looked at more than 12,500 people’s exercise habits by having them wear fitness trackers for a week. When they separated that data by age, they found something alarming about teenagers.

“Activity levels at the end of adolescence were alarmingly low, and by age 19, they were comparable to 60-year-olds,” says the study’s senior author, Vadim Zipunnikov.

The Putsch Against Trump

Here are the latest observations by David Stockman:

"They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice ... You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

The Donald has never spoken truer words, but also has never sunken lower into abject victimhood. Indeed, what is he waiting for – handcuffs and a perp walk?

Just to be clear, "he" doesn’t need to be the passive object of a "WITCH HUNT" by "they".

If Donald Trump had any kind of presidential strategy and propensity to take command, he would have had all the intercepts of Russian chatter gathered up weeks ago. He would then have had them declassified and made public, even as he launched a criminal prosecution against Obama’s hit squad – John Brennan, Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett – for illegally unmasking and leaking classified information.

Such a course of action would have crushed the Russian interference hysteria in the bud.

Stockman is right. Trump should have arrested Comey, Brennan, Rice, and Jarrett. His failure to do so reveals his weakness and will lead to his removal.

All Trump has to do is ENFORCE THE LAWS OF THE US. That's his job, and also the best thing he could do for the country at this point.

Why Are We Messing With Russia ???

The Russian Defense Ministry blasted the U.S.' shooting down of a Syrian regime fighter jet as a "massive violation of international law" and said it will begin treating U.S.-led coalition jets flying west of the Euphrates River in Syria as targets.

The ministry's comments Monday came after a U.S. Navy fighter jet on Sunday shot down a Syrian fighter jet that had dropped bombs on Syrian rebel forces who are fighting ISIS in the country.

It was the first time the U.S. has engaged in air-to-air combat in Syria, signaling an escalation of the conflict. It is is also the first time an American aircraft has shot down any other country’s aircraft in air-to-air combat since 1999 during the Kosovo air campaign when a U.S. Air Force F-16 shot down a Serbian Mig-29.

Russia, which is backing the Syrian government regime in its civil war against rebel forces, slammed the U.S. action as a violation of Syria's sovereignty.

I would have no problem reopening the tribunal at Nuremberg and trying members of the US Senate for war crimes. Maybe THAT would get their attention.

True Source Of The Cold War

From the Philosophy of Metrics website:

Back on September 30, 2015 I published a piece titled "The Bretton Woods Origin of the Cold War". In the article we reviewed how Harry Dexter White, the American leading the Bretton Woods negotiations in 1944, used counter-espionage tactics to trick the British and Soviets, along with other allied nations, into accepting the use of the USD as the international reserve currency.

British economist John Maynard Keynes and the Soviets were expecting to be using a true international currency called bancor as the unit of account in the new international monetary framework. The British were tricked into signing the agreement but the Soviets caught the play and refused to sign, which set off the tension which eventually evolved into the Cold War.

Source - https://philosophyofmetrics.com/democrats-against-the-international-banking-interests/

You guessed it - the first Cold War started because of the US desire for world domination.

And not surprisingly, the second Cold War has its roots in the very same thing.

The Russians became a "threat" because they foolishly demanded (and still do) to be treated as equals, which the US will never do.

A Different Kind Of Father's Day

Here is a Father's Day message from a former US Marine who became a Vietnam War conscientious objector:

... this is Father’s Day, and there is a strange long cultural blood link through fathers to sons to fathers to sons to fathers down through the millennia that occurs to me now.

When I turned from being one of the “few good men,” my father, although he didn’t agree with my refusal since he felt it could lead me to jail, supported me completely. He understood that conscience supersedes blood, and that a father’s love means never sacrificing anybody’s son on the altar of old men’s wars or that of a savage God demanding grotesque sacrifices. For that and many other things, I celebrate my father today. He was a rare man and I was a lucky son.

Someday soon, I hope, sons and daughters around the world will celebrate their fathers for not sacrificing them to the gods of war, those fiends who sit in government offices throughout the world, knives held high above their victims as they await the word from on high to plunge it deep and watch the blood flow.

That will be a very Happy Father’s Day, a different kind of Sunday than the one we hear now, and have been hearing for eons. It will require revolutionary non-violent resistance, the refusal to shed others’ blood. It will be born of disobedience.

Quote For The Day - June 17, 2017

"I have been told by reporters that they will not report their own insights or contrary evaluations of the official 911 story, because to question the government story about 911 is to question the very foundation of our entire modern belief system regarding our government, our country, and our way of life. To be charged with questioning these foundations is far more serious than being labeled a disgruntled conspiracy nut or anti-government traitor, or even being sidelined or marginalized within an academic, government service, or literary career. To question the official 911 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary. In this way, of course, questioning the official story is also simply and fundamentally American."
Karen Kwiatkowski, LTC (retired)

The same principles apply to the Sandy Hook incident. To question its official story also is fundamentally American. So-called "conspiracy theorist" Alex Jones understands that, but his many critics do not.

Shame on them.

How Much Does The Gig Economy Pay ???



That's not nearly enough to live on, in ANY country.

Are US Governors Committing Treason ???

It appears they are. Here is why:

After President Trump rejected the Paris Climate treaty, which had never been ratified by the Senate, the European Union announced that it would work with a climate confederacy of secessionist states.

Scotland and Norway’s environmental ministers have mentioned a focus on individual American states. And the secessionist governments of California, New York and Washington have announced that they will unilaterally and illegally enter into a foreign treaty rejected by the President of the United States.

The Constitution is very clear about this. “No state shall enter into any treaty.” Governor Cuomo of New York has been equally clear. “New York State is committed to meeting the standards set forth in the Paris Accord regardless of Washington's irresponsible actions.”

Cuomo’s statement conveniently comes in French, Chinese and Russian translations.

“It is a little bold to talk about the China-California partnership as though we were a separate nation, but we are a separate nation,” Governor Brown of California announced.

I would have no problem with arresting Governors Cuomo, Brown, and others for treason, because that is exactly what they are doing.

Whether or not Trump stays in office, the breakup of the US is not far off.

Are you happy now?

Will US Civil War Be Fought With Proxies ???

Here is a VERY insightful essay by Bernie Suarez:

For anyone keeping track of the current deep state war this is a heads up warning of things that appear to be on the horizon in America as the road to Civil War 2.0 moves closer to reality. The Associated Press just put out a story that circulated within the corporate mainstream media which portrayed militias as the good guys and empathized with them. I believe this is a major red flag because this is something the corporate mainstream media especially the Liberal Left mainstream media never does. In fact for years, especially during the Obama years we've seen militia members portrayed as domestic terrorists by the Left. Armed groups which stands for America and the Constitution have always been a threat to the Liberal Left because this is opposed to the global order they want. I'm reminded how the corporate mainstream media demonized the Cliven Bundy family and the Bundy Ranch supporters as "domestic terrorists". From Oklahoma City bombing and Timothy McVeigh all the way to the Oregon standoff with Ammon Bundy and LaVoy Finicum, those associating with or said to have associated with the "militia" have not fared well in the eyes of the mainstream media.

So naturally we should look to this recent very rare positive portrayal of the militia by the mainstream media with extremely high suspicion. As I describe in the video below, when the Liberal mainstream media who hates Trump so much and is determined to bring down America starts to speak positively about the militia and begins to describe situations in which the militias will be needed this is cause for suspicion and concern that there is a much deeper agenda going on here than meets the eye.

He's got a very good point. The distinction between freedom fighters, proxies, and terrorists is a very fine line, one the US government knows how to cross and recross with impunity. Something's up, and I doubt it will be good for We The People.

Collision At Sea

As a former Officer of the Deck on two US naval vessels, my heart goes out to the families of the lost and also to the idiot(s) who caused this collision:

The U.S. 7th Fleet said in a statement that the crash damaged two berthing spaces, a machinery room and the radio room. Most of the more than 200 sailors aboard would have been asleep in their berths at the time of the pre-dawn crash.

This is a WARSHIP, right? The crew stands watch in rotating groups, and no more than half of the 200 sailors would have been in their bunks. Many should have been on watch.

And why was this warship so easily damaged by a collision? Are they now made out of tin foil?

The only excuse for a collision at sea is an intentional ramming, and that only happens in time of war. Are we at war with the Philippines? I don't think so.

The Nuclear Energy Disaster

To date, nuclear energy (both military and civilian) has proven to be a disaster.

The US nuked Japan twice, and is itching to do it again ... this time to Iran, Russia, China, and/or North Korea.

The on-going disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear site quite possibly is an extinction level event:

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/06/12/40-year-plan-stop-leakage-fukushima-already-failed/

On the other side of the Pacific Ocean, nuclear waste from the Hanford site is leaking freely into the Columbia River:

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/06/14/radioactive-waste-flowing-freely-columbia-river-theres-no-money-stop/

And even though no one can agree what to do with the spent fuel at every operating reactor site in the US, it continues to be generated in ever greater quantities. Some even want to build more nuclear plants, thereby generating more waste.

If we want to continue living on this planet, we MUST stop our military adventures and START cleaning up our nuclear mess. This is AT LEAST as important as the climate change issue, and perhaps even more so.

No More Patriots ???

There was a time when liberals and conservatives both agreed on one thing. They both used to love their country. Though they differed on what values and policies would be best for their homeland, they still had that shred of common ground.

That’s clearly no longer the case. Across the Western world, you’ll find that even moderate liberals are often uncomfortable with terms like “patriotism” and “nationalism.” As for the far-left, they now view these terms as poisonous and archaic. That’s because they want the whole world to be one big happy family, where borders are meaningless, people can freely move from one country to the next, and no society is inherently better than another. They preach diversity, but they want the world to be blended into one drab monoculture that falls in line with their beliefs.

This subject brings up an interesting question - if the majority of people in North America now hate the United States, then what is our military fighting for? A nation which soon will no longer exist?

I addressed several aspects of this topic in my book No More Patriots. It still is available in the Kindle store, and it's definitely worth a look:

Read it before it's banned.

Back To Afghanistan ???

Trump Administration officials familiar with the decision-making process say that the Pentagon will be sending “almost 4,000” more US ground troops into Afghanistan soon, with the official announcement on the deployment likely to come as early as next week.

To do what, exactly? And for whose benefit?

Nobody in Afghanistan is a threat to me or anyone else in the US. I see no reason why we should send more of our kids there to be traumatized and get their limbs and junk blown off FOR NOTHING.

Surveillance - Good Vs. Bad

Here is an observation by humanitarian Kathy Kelly:

Over the past 7 years, I’ve noted a steady increase in U.S. surveillance of Afghanistan. Drones, tethered blimps, and complex aerial spying systems cost billions of dollars, apparently so that analysts can “better understand patterns of life in Afghanistan.” I think this is a euphemism. The U.S. military wants to better understand patterns of movement for its “High Value Targets” in order to assassinate them.

But my young friends in the Afghan Peace Volunteers, (APV), have shown me a life-giving kind of “surveillance.” They conduct surveys, reaching out to the neediest families in Kabul, trying to establish which families are most likely to be hungry because they have no means to acquire rice and cooking oil.  The APV then work out ways to employ widows to sew heavy blankets, or compensate families that agree to send their child laborers to school for half a day.

Bad surveillance - anything sponsored by the US government, Facebook, Google, and their ilk.

Good surveillance - much of what is done by We The People to keep ourselves alive.

In spite of the vile posturing about philanthropy spewing from Mark Zuckerberg's pie hole, there is daily evidence that Facebook is NOT a force for good in the world. It's just another tool of corporate state oppression.

The Destructiveness Of Amazon

Amazon continues to gobble up the world:

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/16/wal-mart-drops-4-percent-kroger-dives-12-percent-in-premarket-on-amazon-whole-foods-deal.html

Dear DOJ: Amazon is a FAR more destructive force than the imaginary Russian election hackers. Is what they are doing legal? Even if it is, is this what we want "our" economy to become - a few giant corporations and a zillion starving small businesses?

Is Brexit Dead ???

Hmmm ... looks like The Empire doesn't have to worry about the UK's defection after all:

Great Britain may be an island, but economically it is the most interconnected country in Europe: The financial center in London, the country's carmakers, what's left of British industry and even the country's infrastructure. France delivers electricity, water sanitation facilities in southern England belong to Germans and large airports such as Heathrow are owned by Spaniards. One quarter of the doctors who keep afloat the NHS -- Britain's comparatively deficient health care system -- come from the Continent.

The promise of Brexit was steeped in ideology from the very beginning, a fairy tale based on dark chauvinism. The Spanish Armada, Napoleon, Hitler and now the Polish plumbers who allegedly push down wages -- when in reality they ensured that, after decades of lukewarmly dripping showers, the country's bathrooms gradually returned to functionality. Brexit was never a particularly good idea. Now, following the most recent election, Brexit is defunct. That, at least, is what a member of Theresa May's cabinet intimated last weekend. "In practical terms, Brexit is dead," an unnamed minister told the Financial Times.

The will of the people has been quashed in the US, France, and now in the UK. And all it took was the willing support of the whores in their respective MSM and legislatures.

Jeez !!!

Derangement On The Potomac

Great analysis by former OMB Director David Stockman:

The horrific shooting spree on the practice field of the GOP’s congressional baseball team happened early in the morning, but it was hardly the end of Wednesday’s madness on the Potomac.

As it happened, the former was apparently another random eruption by of one of America’s sicko lone wolves – a wretch in the same league as South Carolina church killer, Dylann Roof. Notwithstanding that the latter had littered the nether regions of the Internet with racist rantings while the former was apparently a prolific Never Trumper left-winger, neither represented a real threat to the nation’s equanimity – even if they did bring a savage rain of violence to bear on those unfortunate dozens caught in their immediate line of fire.

Not so for the 325 million American citizens who were pounded upon during the balance of the day by the allegedly "sane" Imperial City officialdom which rules the roost in America.

Specifically, we have in mind Janet Yellen’s hideous presser in which she declared "mission accomplished" and that the US economy is blessed with "solid fundamentals" that are getting ever stronger. And in the same vein of unreality, there soon came the Senate’s 97-2 vote to smack the Donald in his ample jaws and impose even more sanctions on Russia, thereby bringing the nation another step closer to the brink of war and bankruptcy.

Let us unpack this. The American people are being brought to ruin by three institutions that are mortal threats to liberty and prosperity. To wit, the Federal Reserve, the military/industrial/surveillance complex and a sinecured Congress that is burying unborn generations in debt – even as it sanctimoniously presumes that it is doing god’s work by servicing the beltway racketeers who keep it perpetually in office.

I strongly suggest you read the entire article. Stockman appears to be one of the few sane economists left in the US.

Do Not Watch "A Good American"

There is a new 9/11-related movie out named "A Good American". You can watch the trailer here:

http://agoodamerican.org/trailer

In spite of its promise, this film is based upon a serious flaw - namely, the impact of two jetliners plus the resulting fires could NOT in this universe have caused the destruction of WTC1 and WTC2 in the manner we all saw with our own eyes.

The official story of their disintegration is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE. That's why the powers that be destroyed all the evidence before it could be examined.

So what's the point of watching another bogus movie which seems to have the goal of persuading you that 9/11 was not an inside job ... WHEN IT CLEARLY WAS ??

Jeez, this is all so damn stupid.

Illinois Is A Failed State

The state of Illinois is in serious trouble -

(1) They cannot pay their highway contractors:

(2) They cannot pay their pensioners:

(3) And now they cannot even cover their lottery payouts:

It may be just a coincidence, but this is the state which gave you Obama ad-Dajjal, Hillary Clinton, Rahm Emanuel, Al Capone, and the Chicago School of Finance - all of which have been a blight upon humanity.
