Film treatment of Wisdom's Maw [Far Gone Books, 1996] is 100% complete

At the behest of a notable film producer/executive producer, I have been urged to synopsize this tale which combines psychedelic aspects of the CIA's Project MK-Ultra and its effect on the Sixties. All screenwriters' advice, and that of synopsis weavers, is to "keep the synopsis true to the voice of the original work."  ...and, boy howdy, have I.

Wisdom's Maw will be one of those "two hours that will change your way of thinking."

View trailer here.

While some infidel sleepin

While the infidel sleepin
All the bombs we got is outta sight

After kneelin time
With the soulful cleric

That go-BOOM! when it thrown through the air

Well we been around the world
Now we dug into Washington, too
Oh! wit' all my travels, as jihad unravels
I found this sniffin glue

While some infidel sleepin

While the infidel sleepin
All the bombs we got is outta sight

Iz got the mosque on the corner
Many rug inside
Got all the cooz he need 
Got his sponsor as bride

She got the shapely niqab
He got the Taliban waist belt
And under the burqa
She got another

Oh! Muzzie, make me dinner 

While some infidel sleepin
[In] they material life
While the infidel sleepin
All the bombs we got is outta sight...

 Political Assassination – Terror or Plots?
International Politics

by SARTRE – December 8, 2015

How come the really bad guys never get assassinated? In the past this question would not have the same relevance, but since the New World Order engulfed the planet, individual crowned heads have been relegated to ceremonial functions. For Americans the triple play of JFK, MLK and RFK, 1963 -1968 years proved to be a watershed. A compelling argument that the NWO put into motion the final stage of their master plan, after these shootings, add additional credence.

The official fairy tale that Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray and Sirhan Sirhan acted alone has been so completely disproven that only a “low information” kool aide drinker or a hard core establishment flag flyer buys the psyops. Without re-litigating the legal record, the most sensible arguments question if any of these three pigeons were the actual shooters. 

Much like the anti-intellectual culture that flows from academia, public agencies and the corporatist media, which states that Global Warming is settled science; the mere discussion of the facts and evidence in these assassinations is decried, as being advanced by dastardly conspiracy whack cases.  

Real history tells a different tale. Wikipedia has its problems as a source; however, their List of assassinated American politicians is a useful overview. Not to be undone, Wikispooks compiled a list on US/Foreign Assassinations since 1945. Even from a preliminary review, it is incontrovertible that governments are in the business of eliminating opponents or dangerous threats to their power. Childish versions of prescribed narratives of historic events that are taught in government schools or pronounced in the mass media are usually suspect and often unbelievable. 

The important lesson is not to resolve the contested involvement of a lone killer, but to examine the actual pretext behind the events and plausibility of a well organized planned operation to eliminate a risk to the supremacy of the elite system.

Individuals are no longer the movers and shakers as in Napoleon’s day. Today, the coordinated globalist matrix is so prevailing that most countries have lost their influence and certainly their independent sovereignty.  

With the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, World War I was ignited. The Habsburgs royalty certainly did not possess the same political dominance as Bonaparte. In a most significant manner the act of murder in Sarajevo was the beginning of the end of European monarchies. Followed soon thereafter, the Imperial House of the Romanov was eliminated with the Russian Revolution.

What is often missed in the sanitized versions of the deceptive history taught in schools and universities is that the real czars of world dominance continue their consolidation of global controlled Kingship would be abolished or at least democratized as a constitutional and ceremonial function.

The ending of the first half of the twentieth century saw the victory of the most destructive wars ever fought, won by the real rulers of the planet. Openly the formation of the United Nations pushed countries to accept a template for world governance. Illuminati, or whatever term you want to use to describe the cabal of force behind economic, military and legalized carnage, took control of international institutions and dictate policy agendas. 

Now ask yourself the crucial question. If terrorism is a strategy and tactic of radical extremists, why is the fraternity of Illuminati sociopaths still living? No one is so secure or safe from  a dedicated assassin willing to die in the commission of the deed. 

The two attempts on Gerald Ford and the gun shot wounding to Ronald Reagan illustrates the point. Sara Jane Moore and Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme were not prototypes of trained assassins, but they were certainly Charles Mason groupie freaks. John Hinckley Jr., on the other hand, brought a sinister connection between the Bush and Hinckley families.   

Under the suspicious circumstances of the death of William Colby, a sinister CIA legacy of intrigue comes full circle. Add into the mix the much covered “accident” that caused the death of Princess Diana might be interpreted as a case study in royal terror. And finally, the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II certainly provides ample grounds of a political plot behind the gun fire.

Analyzing the specific details of each instance is not the most important task. The focus should be on why the Illuminati bloodline families are not at the top of the terrorist list. If the world was really in the grips of systemic terror, one needs to ask, why the assassins are so dumb in picking their targets.

For centuries the Rothschild Bloodline consistently heads the list of satanic globalists. Their American counterpart and junior partner has been the Rockefeller Bloodline. In the ultra extreme circles of manipulating earthly outcomes, sharing the blood of demonic DNA places the primary responsibility for global evil in the hands of metaphysical monsters. 

Note that the laws of sovereign countries or judicial international courts exempt the power elites from their crimes against humanity. What other pursuit of maintaining an unjust society should the slave hordes expect from this diabolical system?

So where are these scary anarchists? Back in the early years of the last century, besieged humankind understood the nature of the mega powerful. In the twenty first century, the study of genuine history is relegated to comic books. 

The terrorism that does take place is primarily sponsored and fits the playbook of globalist designs. False-Flag Terror: A Historical and Analytical Overview offers a most descriptive account of the methods used to build a culture of permanent fear in the minds of the uninformed. Evidence of misdirection and use of patsy stooges is embedded into the policy of plausible deniability. Bilderberg propaganda leads to official policy implementation. The European Union is a direct result from Illuminati influence. Brussels is a hot bed of terrorists for a reason. If the suicide bombers were all radical Islamists, why are the technocrats of the New World Order still enjoying their privileged positions in their international jihad against traditional Western Civilization?

Case in point, the infamous George Soros, is a protected made man in the ultimate crime syndicate.  Kurt Nimmo cites in, Soros and State Dept. Funded Group Claims Most Terrorists in the U.S. are White.

“A George Soros and State Department funded organization, the New America Foundation, has released a report that states white Americans represent the largest domestic terror threat.”

Such a designation is a code term for goyim. A seasoned observer of the historic record knows that the Illuminati cult has more in common with the Talmud than the Gospels. In George Soros, you have the epitome of evil incarnate. So where are all those dedicated Sunni Islam ‘Wahhabists” when it comes to greeting Soros? Surely, the security around Soros is not hardened against a fanatic jihadist. 

Oh no, the kosher zealots that are protected from the consequences of the terror they underwrite are the Khazars. The art of political assassination has been perfected by the intelligence agencies, which all serve the globalist agenda. The essay, ISIS - Intelligence Agencies Creation and Asset, describes the working of the deceivers. 

When a termination of a quarry is deemed unsuitable for the circumstance, character assassination usually works. However, make no mistake; the ultimate goal is the demise of the useless bottom feeders. And who are the enemies of the globalists? Everyone; but those the Illuminati select to serve their interests. 

Back in the pristine days of human conflict, capture the flag was the way to win a war. Living in the current singular interdependent international community of a Trilateral Commission organism, produces the quest for the supra elites to achieve Transhumanism. The global war that is progressing is not one of terror, but it is one of eradication. 

The assassins that are knocking at your door will not be wearing a burqa or even a SWAT vest, but are garbed in a William Westmancott suit fitted at Savile Row in the City of London. When governments answer to the globalists and ignore their own citizens, recognizing the real terrorists should be self-evident.

Nevertheless, the phony war on terror continues to feed the 24/7 news cycle with more fabrications and lies. Only when the top echelon of globalists becomes fair game to the blowback from their assassinations will the phony terror and false flags cease.

The central banksters system of financial debt enslavement is the primary vehicle for continued chaos and unending warfare. The world became cultured, or so we are told, with The Death of Dueling. Sadly, recourse for a transgression of honor is no longer civilized. In its place is organized assassination by those, who dishonor the rest of society. This is the forbidden history you are prohibited from learning...

 Syrian refugees beginning to arrive in New Orleans
International Politics
by Sabrina Wilson
Posted: 11/14/2015 2:19 PM

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The flood of refugees migrating from the terror in Syria and Afghanistan has begun to have a trickle effect in the New Orleans area.

 

"We had served two families, we're expecting one more soon, and we do not know how many more, but we expect more," said Martin Gutierrez of Catholic Charities, which is part of the Archidiocese of New Orleans.

Catholic Charities has targeted services for helping refugees.

 

"So it's a matter of uniting the families, which is something that the church really promotes, obviously. Some of them don't have relatives and we try to help them become integral parts of our communities," Gutierrez said.

 

But some have argued against the U.S. accepting Syrian refugees, fearing terrorists might slip through the cracks. We turned to former New Orleans FBI chief and anti-terrorism expert Jim Bernazzani for insight on whether that's a legitimate concern. Before coming to New Orleans, Bernazzani worked to  ramp up the nation's anti-terror strategies after 911.

 

"If I was in charge of ISIL, logistically I'd take advantage of this situation and put my people in, into the United States," Bernazzani said. "Now with that said, the FBI is on top of this big time with our Joint Terrorism Task Force and we have what's called a Terrorist Screening Center that these individuals will be run through."

 

But make no mistake, not every refugee seeking admission to the U.S. would face such scrutiny.

 

"It's going to be the 18- to 45-year-old male for the most part," he said. "It's a percentage game. It's not fail-safe, but it's a percentage game."

 

Still, as more of the refugees take up residency in the New Orleans area, Bernazzani discourages fear.

 

"These are just people from another country trying to escape misery by virtue of a civil war," he said. "We had our own civil war, and so I wouldn't be worried, but I would be vigilant," he said.

 

As local humanitarian agencies continue to serve refugees from Syria who find their way here, "there are multiple background checks that are done on these families and it is part of our  Christian faith to welcome the stranger," said Gutierrez.

 ADDRESSING BARBARA HARTWELL’S COMPULSIVE ATTACKS
Privacy

by Howard Nema
HowardNema.com
November 9, 2015

I have learned through friends that Barbara Hartwell has been maliciously attacking and spreading lies about me. She claims I have not deleted her work, when I have, long ago. Aside from this post there is not one article, link or video on TRUTH TALK NEWS or HowardNema.com that I have not deleted. Yet she continuously attacks me, tries to discredit me and even was so lame as to publish my real name, as if it is a secret. 

Oh, heavens to Betsy. I have mentioned my REAL name, Howard Nemaizer on air many times and use Howard Nema simply because it has been my stage name as a musician and it is easy to remember. There is no great “deception” or alias. I don’t know if I can say that about BH, but I don’t attack others and normally ignore inaccurate rantings. BH ‘s obsession with trying to discredit me should be very revealing to those who know me and my work; and now the absence of any of the material BH claims I refuse to remove should set the record straight.

But BH keeps stalking me and posting disinformation. Like the fact I was asked to do a local radio show on UNITED FM RADIO by owner Keith Mutch, who saw my appearance on WAPJ and invited me to do a weekly 3 hr show. It had been a year since I did any live radio and I agreed. We did several shows before I quit due to owner Keith Mutch’s shock jock style attacking residents, many I know in town, which caused great conflict and guilt by association with some of my friends here in Torrington, who informed me that Keith was convicted of felony arson. I don’t need people like Keith Mutch in my life any more than I need Barbara Hartwell in my life. In any case, BH benefited far more from our association than I did, despite her lies, cries of outrage and crocodile tears. 

You see, I QUIT long before BH posted that I was a radio host on UNITED FM. Get your facts straight, Barbara if you are going to accuse people, unless facts and truth no longer matter to you. I remember when I thought they did. Your actions make me question everything you have ever confided in me with and everything we discussed on radio shows. You revealed your true self by attacking me. And I am sorry we ever met, Barbara. Honestly, much as I thought I knew Barbara Hartwell, I clearly did not know her at all. 

But I know her now and I know her game: By their fruits shall we know them. This is the only and final response to BH. There has been much omitted from her attacks like the money I gave her and took her in when she faced homelessness. Barbara Hartwell lived at my home rent free in “squalor” for six weeks eating fried shrimp and filet mignon provided by yours truly. There are lots of questions Bab’s refuses to answer publicly.

BH BITCH

Why isn’t Barbara with her own family on Thanksgiving?

Why won’t her OWN family help her?   She has a son who refused to help her until I left her on his doorstep in  Hyde Park, NY, as a last resort.  He was FORCED to take her in.

And why did she turn on me,  after claiming to be so desperate and on the verge homelessness  then complain how I displaced her when she was going to be thrown out on the street?

I think she thought she had found another sucker to pay her bills.  Her vindictive attacks are as relentless as her pursuit of  “donations”.

My wife didn’t like the idea at all, but she went along with it and we took Barbara in.

In those 6 weeks she didn’t lift a finger to help around the house and even disobeyed wishes to make her presence living in Our home a secret from my in-laws and neighbors, who ultimately informed my landlord, by which time my wife was already quite sick of Barbara and her non-conformity of house rules:  smoking in the house, spilling coffee and wine and leaving tobacco and cigarette butts all around Our property.  It was as if we were the help and she was paying us to be her housekeepers instead of giving her free room and board.

Did I mention that I moved her stuff from Maine to Connecticut for free, in a van I rented and paid for.  The expenses of the move came close to $400...

 CISA Systemic Domestic Spying
Privacy
stop_cisa.jpg

Technology in cyber space is designed to be the instrument of a totality surveillance society. Secretive methods, back doors, observation and collection of data have been in place for decades. CISA is the latest legislation authorization agreement that provides liability exemption for law enforcement and spooks to conduct their systematic assimilation with the codes and functions of technological development for the intended purpose of efficient monitoring of electronic communication.  

Coercion for compliance from any resisting tech giant will provide the government with the brute force to muscle their way past any remnants of Fourth Amendment Bill of Right protections.

The fact that there is so much enthusiasm in Congress to further gut civil liberties comes as no surprise but is frightening that the push back is so weak. 

Senate overwhelmingly passes historic cybersecurity bill is reported by CNN accordingly, “It took several tries, but on Tuesday the U.S. Senate approved a measure to help American companies work more closely with law enforcement to fight off hackers. The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) overwhelmingly passed with a vote of 74 to 21.”

The S.754 - Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 summary is provided online.

(Sec. 3) Requires the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Defense (DOD), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to develop and promulgate procedures to promote: (1) the timely sharing of classified and declassified cyber threat indicators in possession of the federal government with private entities, non-federal government agencies, or state, tribal, or local governments; (2) the sharing of unclassified indicators with the public; and (3) the sharing of cybersecurity threats with entities to prevent or mitigate adverse effects.

As with so much of the language used by government to sanitize the real functions of providing legal cover for unlawful practices by passing additional unconstitutional laws, CISA is a true Trojan horse. Regretfully, your virus protection will not protect your computer content or privacy. 

This is how the mainstream media is framing the “so called” intent and purpose of the legislation. U.S. Senate approves measure to help companies work with law enforcement to fight hackers.

“The bill calls for "real-time" sharing. Companies in a hurry might not wipe the data enough before law enforcement gets it, expanding how much they know about Americans.

Those jumbles of code known as "cyber threat indicators" could still be revealing about Americans' daily lives.

DHS isn't allowed to wipe personal data if another agency, like NSA, objects.

And even though law enforcement is only allowed to collect "cyber threat indicators," cops can use them to investigate "an imminent threat of death," bodily harm, economic harm and "terrorist" acts.

"It creates the wrong impression about what this bill does," said Jeff Greene, a top policy attorney at Symantec who wants that language cut out of the bill.

Perhaps most importantly, companies that share too much -- and accidentally harm their customers -- are protected from lawsuits. A key provision in CISA is the complete elimination of liability for companies that share data. Last week, U.S. Senator Rand Paul warned, "It makes your privacy agreement not worth the paper it's written on."

The Presidential campaign for Rand Paul falters not because he is wrong about defending personal liberty, but because so many Americans are oblivious or reconciled to the treason of the District of Criminal political class. Disconnect is obvious and grows worse with each passing year and little ever improves. Actually, it is hard to remember when the last time a true victory came out of the Federal government.

CISA is a prime example of public apathy in an environment of voluntary Facebook disclosure using the countenance of “PC” algorithm censorship.

Objection to additional violations of privacy measures that confuse the masses, while empowering the authoritarians further is expressed in the reasoned position by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Their assessment is spot on in, EFF Disappointed as CISA Passes Senate.

“The conference committee between the House of Representatives and the Senate will determine the bill's final language. But no amount of changes in conference could fix the fact that CISA doesn't address the real cybersecurity problems that caused computer data breaches like Target and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

The passage of CISA reflects the misunderstanding many lawmakers have about technology and security. Computer security engineers were against it.  Academics were against it. Technology companies, including some of Silicon Valley’s biggest like Twitter and Salesforce, were against it. Civil society organizations were against it. And constituents sent over 1 million faxes opposing CISA to Senators.”

If so many tech companies and factions express their opposition to this draconian legislation and can be ignored so easily, how can average Americans protect their most personal information? Well, the most basic common sense safeguard is to be extremely guarded with any aspect of your life that is freely placed online. 

In an age of computerization germinating into an artificial intelligence matrix of human replacement, the cause of maintaining the essence of individual identity may well require carving out a wilderness reclusive retreat. However, how many people will drive their range rover with GPS tracker and an iPhone to their secret hideaway?  

Most people are acclimated to the socialization of popular culture. Addicted to smart phone trivia is a prime exemplar of technology gone awry. Nevertheless, the notion that devices are neutral and are not often designed to embody intrinsic dehumanization is a foreign concept to the trendy crowd. 

However, that is exactly where high-tech corporatists are herding the sheeple into the pit of self-induced conformity and submission. Here is where the security hysteria of government imposition tyranny becomes routine in a society that has lost all self-respect. 

When Edward Snowden warns that “The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything”, CISA encodes an unconstitutional legality for a domestic spying integration with tech companies and ISP providers that expedites the collection and storage of electronic digital data on ANYONE. 

This is the operational purpose of despotic agencies that once were charged with legitimate foreign intelligence gathering that has redirected their capabilities on their new enemy “Patriots”, now called domestic terrorists. The hidden translation in their ciphers is that citizen dissenters are the targets of their echelon antennas and dishes. 

The use of StingRay, an IMSI-catcher (International Mobile Subscriber Identity), is a controversial cellular phone surveillance device that fits nicely under the CISA umbrella. Now that it is disclosed, IRS possessed Stingray cellphone surveillance gear, documents reveal; isn’t it convenient that CISA will indeed facilitate sharing for the benefit of added government control. No doubt DHS can be trusted? RIGHT . . . just like the IRS did not target conservative groups.

People need to get serious about the number one threat from the terror coming out of their own government. Congressional arrogance and Senate hubris in passing CISA has become the new normal. Close behind are the likes of Facebook, who may be the secret force behind the surveillance bill “CISA”. 

  • All privacy policies effectively null and void. Companies can share any private user data with the government, without a warrant, as long as the government says it is being used for a “cybersecurity” purpose.
  • In exchange, companies are given blanket immunity from civil and criminal laws, like fraud, money laundering, or illegal wiretapping (if a violation was committed or exposed in the process of sharing data).
  • Data is shared with a wide array of government agencies, from the FBI and NSA, to the IRS and local law enforcement. Many of these agencies have been breached within the last year and have outdated security systems, opening up the doors to even more cyber attacks.
  • Companies that play along can get otherwise classified intelligence data from the government, including private information about their competitors. 

This is the future of the total surveillance state. Those corporatist companies that actively seek to extract the substance of personal identity for use as a marketing asset need to be exposed and punished for their betrayal of trust. When Mark Zuckerberg once called Facebook users “dumb f*cks” for trusting him with their data, he exposed himself for the scumbag that he is. 

Technology of personal privacy destruction is a curse. Marry that engineering with the insatiable appetite of the NSA Spying on Americans, and you have a formula for a system of individual identity obliteration. 

Establishing and instituting legitimate cybersecurity is a function of inventing and fostering the actual solutions to protect the nation, its businesses and the public. Rewarding a corporate accord for disclosing real time information to the DHS with blanket liability immunity is one additional step towards a complete Fascist union. 

Even if the Fourth Amendment is not a top priority for government worshipers, the dehumanization of one’s own dignity should give pause for anyone who still has the ability to look in the mirror. CISA only protects the power establishment as it exposes and exploits your inner most secrets.

 The FBI & Hillary’s e-mails: A Lois Lerner precedent?
General News

by New York Post editorial board

October 26, 2015

The fix was in: Lois Lerner will walk away scot-free.

On Friday, the Justice Department closed its two-year investigation into the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status and decided to charge . . . no one.

This, when Lerner admitted the IRS had singled out righty groups, but blamed the “absolutely inappropriate” actions on “front-line people” — that is, lower-level folks. And then refused to answer more questions by pleading the Fifth.

Questions about, say, her orders to hold up applications from any outfit with “Tea Party” or “patriot” in its name.

In a letter Friday, Justice told Congress: “We found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.”

In other words, exactly what President Obama ordered up — er, predicted. Back when the “investigation” had barely started, Obama told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there wasn’t “even a smidgen of corruption” in the case. On “The Daily Show,” he explained that the “real scandal” is that the IRS lacks the budget to do more audits.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a member of the House Oversight Committee, notes: “Here’s a lady who systematically and for a sustained period of time targeted people for exercising their most fundamental rights, their First Amendment free-speech rights. … The chief investigator, the chief lawyer assigned to the Justice Department to evaluate this, was Barbara Bosserman — a maxed-out contributor to the president’s campaign.”

“So it shouldn’t be any surprise the Justice Department said there’s nothing wrong here. But the American people know that there is.”

Wondering what the FBI probe will conclude about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private account and server for all her State Department e-mails? Well, Obama already told CBS’s Steve Kroft that it didn’t make for a “national security problem. . . I can tell you that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.”

If the Lois Lerner case is any precedent, the FBI might as well wrap up its Clinton probe right now.

 All out Warfare on Political Correctness
General News

tcheader.jpg

 

by SARTRE – August 25, 2015

The bastion of Totalitarian Collectivism is based upon a culture of political correctness. Before authoritarians impose their rigid formulas for shaping and defining a false reality, the ground needs to be prepared for molding public opinion. The details and narrative of mind control works best when people have already adopted an urbanity of collective singularity. The nature of “TC” is the next level beyond political correctness.

Peer pressure may be expected during school adolescence but part of growing up requires a level of maturity to distinguish between facts, moral conduct and social values arrived at through sound and rigorous intellectual scrutiny. The primary source of mental malady comes out of media. As the media covers their daily inventions from papier-mâché substance from toilet paper sagas the public sinks deeper into the fog of war. The conflict that pervades the minds of the remaining rational thinkers becomes a struggle for survival.

Analyzing the merits of the dished out information from the media barons, is an experience like being put on the “Strappado Wrack” of political torture. While these media outlets share the spotlight that places the focus on the intended outcome, the strings of propaganda are being pulled by government intervention in the reporting process.

Rarely are the barbs of establishment mass medium used as an attack on the ruling elites. When a lonely threat rises out of the “PC” orthodoxy, the reams of paper used to put down a rabid dog come at no expense. Protecting the appointed order is the purpose behind professing the conformity of compliance.    

Eradication of dissent is the supreme use of applying political correctness to the national consciousness. One way or the highway has become stick to your side of the center line or get run off the road. Meaningful political discourse is almost impossible in an environment where socialized purity has become a fatal blood disease. The Sepsis condition caused by an overwhelming immune response to accepting a fictitious version of certainty is a terminal infection.

A glaring example of the beginnings of an upside down world is outlined in Political correctness has replaced British Politics! It is noteworthy that the two primary totalitarian European regimes of the twentieth century were engaged in their own versions of ideology dogma.

So how did it all start? Political Correctness started in a think tank (called The Frankfurt School) in Germany in 1923. The purpose was to find a solution to the biggest problem facing the implementers of communism in Russia. Why wasn't the wonderful idea of communism spreading? Read the short history here, the full history and purpose here or watch a 22 minute documentary here.

The Frankfurt school recommended (amongst other things):

  •  the creation of racism offences
  • continual change to create confusion
  • the teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
  • the undermining of schools and teachers' authority
  • huge immigration to destroy national identity
  • the promotion of excessive drinking
  • emptying the churches
  • an unreliable legal system with bias against the victim of crime
  • dependency on the state or state benefits
  • control and dumbing down of media
  • encouraging the breakdown of the family

It was no coincidence that the same themes of cultural destruction affect the British Empire after the “so called” victory over fascism. The cultural Marxism that emerged in the post war era has an undisputed record of causing the decline and destruction of Western Civilization.

Missing in the conformist and accepted version of recent history is the role and influence of the tribal architects of de-constructing traditional values and Christian heritage. Admitting the linkage of the war on humanity with the tenants of “Political Correctness” is a crucial step in the bitter struggle to overcome the movement to stamp out the free exchange of knowledge and backdrop of our common bonds.

In a series of videos from Red Ice Creations, entitled Minority Rule: The Rise of Political Correctness is an unfinished documentary directed by the late Byron Jost (A Line in the Sand). The focus of the documentary is the role of the organized Jewish community in creating political correctness. Interviewees include Dr. Kevin MacDonald, Dr. E. Michael Jones, Dr. James Sanchez, and Canadian free speech activist Paul Fromm.

Review the evidence and ask who exactly benefits from the devastating dismantling of our European legacy? A “PC” culture is not compatible with individual freedom or social liberty.

The last fifty years has seen the acceleration of attacks on all aspects of Western thought, morals and political discourse. In a New Yorker essay, Not a Very P.C. Thing to Say, Jonathan Chait is quoted: “The PC movement has assumed a towering presence in the psychic space of politically active people in general and the left in particular.

From the BBC, Anthony Zurcher comments on the substantial danger in allowing a “PC” culture to sack the landscape in, A political correctness war that never really ended.

“Chait defines this new political correctness as mainly an internecine war among liberals, where "more radical members of the left attempt to regulate political discourse by defining opposing views as bigoted and illegitimate". It is at its heart, he says, illiberal and anti-free speech.

Among the examples he cites of modern-day PC extremism are calls for white males to "check their privilege"; trigger warnings on articles and college curricula; small slights called "microagressions" that, taken together, create a hostile environment for the unempowered; demands for inclusive language for trans-gendered persons; and protests that have prevented controversial lecturers from appearing on university campuses.”

Sincere traditionalists defend free speech, but the war against true American values and a rational way of life was started by the very pseudo intellectuals, who are converts to the sick and demented collectivist handbook written in a Marxist language and implemented by the monolith media and education indoctrination structure.

The natural counter weight to such an endemic perversion can be seen in the Donald Trump phenomena. “PC” is grounded in culture but is realized in economic despotism.  

 Donald Trump vs. Davos Man appears in The Economic Populist.

“Trump’s economic policies and theoretical framework challenge the Establishment’s basic operating assumptions to the core. The Establishment economic policy is globalist neoliberalism. They want to decrease the importance of national borders and national sovereignty in order to make the world safer for international finance and commerce, hence their support for mass immigration and sovereignty compromising “free trade” deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Trump’s opposition to “free trade” deals and open borders and unabashed advocacy of economic nationalism directly challenges the Establishment consensus in a way that no other candidate dose. All the major candidates in both parties with the possible exception of Bernie Sanders actually take Establishment neoliberal presumptions for granted.”

Trump, the person is not the issue, but his economic nationalism is at the core in the clash against the “PC” war against civilization. The Radical Reactionary column, Playing the Trump Card for Political Correctnessaddressed the initial reaction to his candidacy. Since that time excitement has transitioned into a movement. The “Silent Majority” that gathered to attend the Mobile, Alabama rally understand that the enemy of the nation is the mindset that talks tolerance, while advocating and promoting the elimination of all that is worth preserving and defending.

Jeff Crouere writes in the Christian Post, Donald Trump Wins in Battle Against Political Correctness.

“America today is replete with cowards who are afraid to "tell it like it is." Fortunately, one of the rare truth tellers is running for President. Let's see if the American people want the truth or if they want to maintain their belief in fiction, supported only by politically correct lies.

Today, our problems are so severe, it is time for not only tough talk, but, more importantly, strong action. Political correctness is a very serious affliction that has done incredible damage to our country. It will eventually destroy America if it is not pulled up by the roots and finally eradicated.”

Are you one of those cowards who are so timid to think about, much less, discuss the origins of the “PC” doctrine? Progressive academia is a sewer of tribal censorship. The stakes cannot be higher. The very survival of our society is being shattered by allowing the “PC” proponents from going unchallenged.

The enthusiasm for Trump recognizes leadership and guts. To paraphrase Douglas MacArthur, there is no substitute for results.

For any citizen who has retained even the most modest level of brain cells, you must see the truth in the Trump statement: “You know, this country is so politically correct. Nobody wants to take a stance on anything."

Now you know this is the prevailing posture for professional politicians, but what about you, your family, neighbors and fellow workers? There is no escape from the combat. The totalitarian collectivists are dedicated to your destruction. You are neither a victim nor a bully, but a target for elimination. Act accordingly at your own peril.

 Todd Brendan Fahey interviews ''American Pie'''s Shannon Elizabeth
General News

Interview of June 18, 2015; published August 20, 2015

We all remember her as the "foreign exchange student from Czechoslovakia" in the smash hit American Pie; though not directly responsible, she has caused more untidiness in the bedrooms of adolescent males and grown men than...well, probably than any girlfriend or wife has ever accomplished.  Actress Shannon Elizabeth recently wrapped up the filming of Swing Away--a golf comedy with romance and heart--and which has been produced by my 30-year pal George Elias Stephanopoulos, who I met while in a "semester-abroad" program at University of London-Union College in 1985; an attorney by day/indie movie powerhouse somehow in his other hours, Mr. Stephanopoulos successfully optioned the world's bestselling golf novel, Golf in the Kingdom--written by Michael Murphy, who founded Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California--an enclave of meditation, psychedelic exploration and goings-on which are likely Classified.  Golf in the Kingdom was optioned by Clint Eastwood and explored for a decade; then purchased by Warner-Brothers and sat upon for years. From pen to theater audiences, 40 years would pass.

Invited to the isle of Rhodes, Greece in May for 11 days by George Elias Stephanopoulos, I was privileged to interview the cast of Swing Away--an exceptional group of minds, which include several of the most-acclaimed actors of Greece; an incredibly talented Scottish actor/comedian/singer-songwriter and the incomparable John O'Hurley (Seinfeld's recurring "J. Peterman"), a lightning-quick mind and who I will deem now a genius.

*All (or most...) photos and videos taken on and around the set of Swing Away are proprietary by contract, and hence the delay in mine reportage of these wonderful days, "hanging out and Dancing With the Stars."

                   --------------------------------

Todd Brendan Fahey Interviews Shannon Elizabeth

[Hi Todd - Sorry for the delay. Been catching up since coming back from Greece.]

Todd Brendan Fahey: Please introduce and describe your character in Swing Away
Shannon Elizabeth: My character is Zoe Papadopoulos and she’s a golf pro on the LPGA tour who gets suspended for bad behavior and escapes to visit her grandparents in Greece to regroup and find herself again while riding out her suspension.

How did you learn of this movie, and what made you interested in portraying the role of Zoe?
The film was brought to me over a year ago by the producers. I met with a previous director and then Michael Nickles who came on board as our final director and fearless leader. I read many rewrites of the script and once Michael came on board and got his hands on the script, I was sold. I also had the pleasure of meeting Manos Gavras in LA over a year ago and his involvement and passion for the project and working with me made me excited to work on the film too. It’s always good to work with good people who have a similar vision as you do for the project. 

Are their any parallels to your own life which you could bring/draw upon for the development of the character of Zoe?

There are many parallels to this character and my own life. I am a very competitive tomboy type of girl, just like Zoe. I played professional poker and competitive tennis growing up. So the athlete has always been a part of me. I also am a very passionate person with an occasional temper, just like Zoe. I’m also a caregiver, nurturer type. So playing a role who gets to help people and take care of the village and this little girl was such a nice change from some of my past roles. I felt like I was getting to play something much closer to who I am. 

Director Mike Nickles made a point in his interview with me, that he is happy to allow actors (generic, both male and female) to bring to the script ideas which would make a better movie; please tell of some examples that you witnessed of this occurring while shooting Swing Away

Michael was always open to hearing our ideas about what the character might say or do in any situation if we wanted to change things a bit. He was very collaborative. Especially because there were daily rewrites being done and sometimes things needed to be cut down. So he was always considering all opinions on what was important to the character or storylines and what wasn’t. 

This being a movie with a cast of predominately Greek actors (and being produced by Greek-American and Greek producers/investors), what did you see in the performances of the Greek cast which was unique and different from your previous experience with actors?

It was a lot of fun for me to be able to work on a film where a lot of the dialog was in another language, including my own. I was able to watch the passion that comes through in the Greek actors when they’re speaking Greek and what they do with their hands and voice when they speak. It really helped me when it came time for me to say my lines in Greek. 

Of young performer Viktoria Miller, who plays golf prodigy Stella, please describe your experience with her--both as characters and as humans on- and off-set.

Victoria and I became very close. If I had a daughter I’d imaging her being just like Victoria. She’s an absolute love and a very bright girl. You could see her constantly watching us and registering things in her mind and then implementing them as an actress. Her memory is incredible. What she was able to do by the end of the movie was very evolved from the beginning, just from immersing herself in the experience. She’s got a very bright future ahead of her no matter what she decides to do.

Thanks so much!!

Shannon Elizabeth

 Trump's call to end abuse of US birthright citizenship divides GOP
International Politics

By 

Published August 22, 2015  FoxNews.com

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call to end birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants has refueled the immigration debate and spilt the GOP field and legal experts who question whether such a change is possible.

Trump’s plan goes after the 14th amendment, which grants citizenship to essentially anybody born in the United States. But he is particularly focused on stopping pregnant women from illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border for the purpose of having a child or an “anchor baby,” which reduces the likelihood of the parents being deported.

Trump announced his plan Sunday, calling the amendment the country’s “biggest magnet for illegal immigration.” And he continues to suggest that his lawyers think the amendment might not withstand a court challenge.

“I was right,” Trump, the billionaire businessman and top GOP candidate, said Friday night at a rally in Alabama. “You can do something, quickly.”

However, other candidates and legal experts are split on the issue.

“Trump thinks ‘our country is going to hell.’ Well, there is likely little more than a chance in hell that we are going to amend the Constitution,” Jessica Levinson, a law professor at Loyola University of Los Angeles, said Wednesday. “Amending the Constitution is one of the most serious things that lawmakers can do. Therefore the path to doing it is rightfully arduous. I would put the chances … as beyond a longshot."  

To be sure, changing the Constitution, the supreme law of the land, would require a two-thirds vote in Congress, then ratification from three-fourths of state legislatures. It could also be changed through a constitutional convention in which at least 34 states convene to vote on an amendment, which would then need ratification from a minimum 38 states.

Trump since announcing his candidacy in mid-June has made illegal immigrants from Mexico a top concern and has suggested several solutions -- including a wall along the southern border and the change to birthright citizenship...

 ''ANTHRAX TORIE'' STRATEGIC DISINFORMATION AT THE PENTAGON
International Politics

by Todd Brendan Fahey

Seven days prior to events which would set the world on-edge, newly-hired Pentagon spokeswoman Victoria "Torie" Clarke offered an equally startling admission to Agency France Presse wire service, but which received scant attention within U.S. media sources.

Ms. Clarke-- having been lured back into government service by pal Mary Matalin on Vice President Dick Cheney's staff, from a high-paying post as Manhattan office director for the venerable public relations firm of Hill & Knowlton--the former PR chief to Senator John McCain and one-time George Bush (the elder) staffer would divulge to foreign media that the United States, via the Pentagon and the shadowy Defense Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, would begin producing a new and potent strain of anthrax bacteria, and that such plans had been in the works since 1997. The source of the anthrax was to be from Russian stock, and, according to Ms. Clarke, would be used "purely for defensive measures."

 

The new strain of anthrax, engineered by Russian sources, Clarke purported, would be used to test the effectiveness of a newly-developed vaccine in the United States. "We have a vaccine that works against a known anthrax strain. What we want to do is make sure we are prepared for any surprises, for anything that might happen that might be a threat," she said.

Clarke presented this information on September 4, 2001, via a Department of Defense news briefing; when asked directly as to whether the United States, through any agency, was developing or producing anthrax bacilli, her response, repeatedly, was, "no."

The DoD issued this update recently to Ms. Clarke's news briefing: "the Department of Defense Cooperative Threat Reduction Program is funding a collaborative research project on anthrax monitoring with the State Research Center for Applied Microbiology in Obolensk, Russia. In August 2001 the State Research Center applied to the Russian Export Control Commission for a license to transfer the anthrax strain to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. The application is currently pending a decision of the Russian Export Control Commission, and the U.S. government will seek Russian approval of the export license."

One week after this news conference, three hijacked airliners slammed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon buildings, killing an estimated 3,100 civilian and military personnel. Shortly thereafter, white powder began to appear on the desks of prominent politicians and at news broadcast stations--most notably at NBC and American Media, headquarters of The National Enquirer tabloid--and bearing strikingly identical handwriting, each dated "09-11-01" and proclaiming the message, "Allah Is Great."

Incredibly, despite airport videotapes of Middle Eastern men boarding the various hijacked jets, and what with the messages contained on and within the anthrax envelopes and the fact that hijackers Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi had taken flight training lessons at a private airfield very near to American Media's headquarters, Boca Raton, Florida, and that al-Shehhi had rented a room in a condominium owned by the wife of American Media (National Enquirer) publisher, news reports filtered out for weeks, attempting to convince the public that FBI profilers had determined the anthrax exposures in New York, Connecticut and Florida to be the work of a "right-wing loner"; anonymous FBI sources, through the Washington Post, offered that a "popular West Coast right-wing organization" was under specific scrutiny.

Domestic critics of the government would counter that the style in which the dates were penned on the envelopes containing the anthrax spores could not be that of a person of Middle Eastern descent, which would use a script akin to: "01. 09. 11."; government sources bandied back that, the sources probably thought ahead and disguised the script. Nobody knew what to believe, and the investigations into the anthrax exposures were not (and are still not) being made known to the American citizenry.

The American public didn't bite on the "right-wing loner" theory, with no proof offered, no suspect produced, and in light of a New York Timesarticle, citing weapons expert William C. Patrick III, a U.S. microbiologist active in germ weapons design during the late 1960s. The Timesquoted Dr. Patrick as saying, of the batch sent to Senator Tom Daschle (D-SD), "he had learned details of the federal inquiry from a senior investigator. The Senate powder, Mr. Patrick said, was quite potent and capable of sailing far through the air to hurt many people.remarkably free of extraneous material. `It's high-grade,' said Mr. Patrick, who consults widely on making germ defenses. `It's free flowing. It's electrostatic free. And it's in high concentration.'" ("Contradicting Some U.S. Officials, 3 Scientists Call Anthrax Powder High-Grade," William J. Broad, 10/25/01)

Pressured by the Times report, newly-installed Director of the Department of Homeland Security, former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge, announced that the type of anthrax found at all locations corresponded to a perfect genetic match to one (1) specific stock of anthrax bacilli, known as "the Ames strain," developed at the US Department of Agriculture's veterinary lab, Ames, Iowa, in the 1930s, and stored currently only at an Army biochemical research facility in Ft. Detrick, Maryland, which it is said produced via budget cuts and layoffs scores of disgruntled employees and whose inventory procedures and security was, in recent years, notoriously lax.

Within days of the failed government trial-balloon, samples of the anthrax sent to office within National Broadcasting Company and to Sen. Daschle proved what most "right-wingers" feared most: The Anthrax Was Ours.

But We Weren't Supposed to be Producing Anthrax

On December 12, 2001, media scrutiny of international treaties and U.S. law forced the U.S. Army to make an embarrassed admission: contrary to government propaganda, which had it that the U.S. had ceased producing or storing anthrax, according to terms of treaty signed by President Richard Nixon, 1969, substantial stocks of anthrax bacilli were, in fact, being stored at Dugway Proving Ground, Tooele county, Utah, with "limited quanties" still being produced, toward "defensive research" against possible airborne attacks by hostile sources. Army sources at the Dugway facility reported to FBI that all stocks of anthrax were secure and accounted for, following a thorough inventory. The same could not be said for elsewhere.

International media--tipped off by British sources at a biochemical warfare research facility in Porton Down, Salisbury, England--were informed that an investigation was underway at Porton Down, of stocks of a unique form of anthrax sent to that facility via the U.S. Army, Ft. Detrick. From the Porton Down admission, not only was it acknowledged that the U.S. government was exporting anthrax abroad, but via the "FBI's interest in a CIA contractor" who worked at the Porton Down facility, the Federal Bureau of Investigation began, as is its charter and scope, to investigate the Central Intelligence Agency, on grounds of domestic terrorism. Porton Down was later cleared of involvement in the U.S. anthrax outbreaks, after all stocks were accounted for, but not before British involvement laid the U.S. clean with a very black eye.

And still, according to the London Telegraph, and despite Tom Ridge's admission that the Florida and New York samples were identical and were that of "the Ames strain," held only at US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases, Ft. Detrick, Maryland, FBI persisted in reporting that it "believes the attacks, which have killed five people, to be the work of a domestic terrorist, although they have not ruled out links with Osama bin Laden and his al-Qa'eda network."

The highly-milled, "weaponized" anthrax which killed five known persons, sickened dozens of others, and to which perhaps even hundreds were exposed, was not Iraqi, nor Soviet in origin. Martin Hugh-Jones, a biological researcher from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, was quoted by the UK's New Scientist that, "while many laboratory animals are immunised with the vaccine now being given to thousands of American troops are exposed to anthrax, many are still killed by the Ames strain."

Both Soviet and Iraqi researchers favored the "Vollum strain," isolated in Oxford, England, in 1930; Gulf War-era weapons inspectors in Iraq found samples of the Vollum strain at Iraq's Al Hakam plant.

And still, according to New Scientist, "the White House reiterated last week that all anthrax mass-produced in the US was destroyed after 1969." ("Trail of Terror," Debora MacKenzie, 10/24/01)

But the White House and the Pentagon were lying. And whether by error, leak or design, the United States Government had killed five of its own citizens domestically. Torie Clarke's statement to Agency France Presse had not been valid and true: we were not "looking to procure" a stock of Russian anthrax; we were already making it, with spores bred from a stricken cow in Ames, Iowa, in secret, illegally by international treaty, and with faulty safeguards toward our citizens' safety.

Meltdown at the Pentagon: OSI Leaked from Within

On February 19, 2002, news reports began running hot and fast that the Pentagon had created formally an agency through which to "influence opinion" abroad; the Office of Strategic Influence (OSI), as it was to be called, would be run by retired Brigadier General Simon "Pete" Worden--an eccentric character, with heavy ties to former Reagan Cabinet member Frank Carlucci's Carlyle Group, given to answering his staff in fluent Russian and a master of practical jokes (hence, some say, OSI's acronymic similarity to the fictional "Office of Special Intelligence" in the 70's TV series, The Six Million-Dollar Man).

Associate Press reporter Sally Buzbee broke the story officially, citing as her source: "a defense official said Tuesday on condition of anonymity." Within minutes, the AP report had circulated to top-of-the-bar news on the popular Yahoo News site, and, moments later, was disseminated via FreeRepublic.com, where the general consensus was one of extreme discontent.

According to the AP story, "State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said the department was aware of the Pentagon office but declined to discuss its functions." Deputy Director of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, addressing the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics in Washington on the day of the leak, declined comment on the report. Clearly, the Departments of State and Defense were caught off-guard and uncomfortable in addressing the issue before consulting with their superiors: Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush.

While many activists and journalists stationed themselves before their keyboards with reactions to the news, Insight magazine managing editor Paul Rodriguez sought to ferret out the source of the leak. His conclusions, which are his own, but which are impressive and which have not been answered, in now-49 days of continuous inquires, by the subject herself, point to FreeRepublic.com poster and Pentagon Deputy Director of Public Affairs Victoria "Torie" Clarke. It is surmised by those who know Ms. Clarke that the strong-willed, militarily-challenged new-hire felt threatened in her public relations position by the emerging Office of Strategic Influence, to be headed by a military General. Knowing "Torie" Clarke, as I do, such a disclosure is perfectly in keeping with her character, as a power-hungry ladder-climber and self-proclaimed "statist neocon," but I'll leave this angle to Mr. Rodriguez and his staff at Insight.

And although the Pentagon "officially" closed its Office of Strategic Influence one-week-to-the-day post-leak, with the nation nearly dead-square against such a proposal, the facts herein are ugly and indisputable:

1) The Pentagon, despite its protestations of ignorance, lied to the American public about its stockpile and continued production, however limited, of anthrax bacilli.

2) The White House either lied to the American public about the aforementioned Pentagon activities, or was ignorant of the Pentagon's operations and is, therefore, negligent in its executive oversight capacity of the Department of Defense.

3) The Pentagon's disinformation campaign--contrary to reports that it began on February 19, 2002, was already in motion on September 5, 2001, and Victoria Clarke, as Deputy Director for Public Affairs was its "go-to girl" on "the anthrax question."

4) Should "Torie" Clarke retain her position at the Pentagon, President George W. Bush will have committed a mockery of his promise of a "leak-free Administration," to be offered alongside his breach of promise in re: signing John McCain's Campaign Finance Reform and his opposition to "amnesty" for illegal aliens--a foetid buffet, served, as always, on the finest of bone-China to the "grassroots," in 2004, and earning him a place alongside his father, in the "read my lips" Hall of Shame.

 Was Tariq Aziz The Coalition's Mole?: Independent Media Scooped London Telegraph
International Politics

Todd Brendan Fahey has beaten the mainstream press to the punch yet again. 

Find below his Sianews.com report on U.S. Iraqi Asset Tariq Aziz, and then see the "mainstream" press confirm it a month later. 

Tariq Aziz Fingered Saddam Hussein for Death

by Todd Brendan Fahey
03/23/03 01:13 AM

Confidential Intelligence sources now report that Tariq Aziz, long-time aide to Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and nominal "Vice Premier" of Iraq, was the finger-man behind the U.S. bombing raid on Hussein's safe-house.

Aziz was reported to have defected to Northern Iraq and/or Iran early in the U.S. campaign, by various news networks, including Fox News and MSNBC. The "defection" is now being viewed as a ruse by the Pentagon's disinformation outlets, to protect Aziz against repercussions by Iraqi insiders.

According to sources, Aziz divulged whereabouts of his boss in exchange for guarantees by the United States for his own personal survival.

Developing...

The only Christian in Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath Party Cabinet, and a vehement spokesman and champion of Hussein throughout the Gulf War of 1991, Mr. Aziz has held a rocky relationship with Hussein over the past 12 years. Demoted, fired, rehired, shuffled around and reassigned from and to various positions within Hussein's party hierarchy; the subject of abuse by Hussein's two sons--both believed to be dead--; Intelligence sources, speaking upon condition of anonymity to SiaNews.com, assert that Aziz accepted offers of personal security guarantees by the U.S. State Department and Department of Defense as early as March of 2002, in exchange for details leading to a "quick demise" of Saddam Hussein...

Fahey, a strategic writer stationed in South Korea, has served as aide to Central Intelligence Agency agent Theodore L. "Ted" Humes, Division of Slavic Languages, and to the late-Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief Lt. General Daniel O. Graham; to former Arizona Governor Evan Mecham (R-AZ), former Congressman John Conlan (R-AZ) and others.

The Mainstream press was just five weeks late with this story.

Was Tariq Aziz The Coalition's Mole?

Saddam's trusted foreign policy adviser may in fact be the Iraqi spy who provided the intelligence responsible for the cruise missile attack on the Iraqi dictator's bunker in southern Baghdad in the opening salvoes of the conflict.


By Con Coughlin

04/27/03: (Telegraph) Saddam Hussein's security chiefs placed members of Tariq Aziz's family under arrest shortly before the start of the war to make sure that the former Iraqi deputy prime minister did not defect to the West, The Telegraph can reveal.

Concerns about the fate of his family - in particular his eldest son - if he surrendered to coalition forces was Aziz's primary concern during the lengthy negotiations that finally resulted in his decision to give himself up at the end of last week.

"Tariq was still terrified of what the remnants of Saddam's regime would do to his family if he surrendered to us," said a Western security officer. "Even if Saddam were dead, he knew that there were still Ba'ath Party loyalists who would want to exact revenge on his family."

As part of Aziz's surrender terms, coalition commanders agreed to place the Iraqi politician's immediate family under the equivalent of protective custody to ensure that they were safe from revenge attacks by Saddam loyalists.

But yesterday the favourable surrender terms agreed between coalition commanders and Aziz prompted speculation that Saddam's trusted foreign policy adviser may in fact be the Iraqi spy who provided the intelligence responsible for the cruise missile attack on the Iraqi dictator's bunker in southern Baghdad in the opening salvoes of the conflict.

Intelligence officials have claimed that the information they received that allowed them to target Saddam's bunker came from a "senior official" within the Ba'ath regime, and as one of the leading members of the ruling Revolutionary Command Council (RCC) Aziz would have prior warning that Saddam was planning to hold a meeting at one of his heavily-fortified bunkers.

"You get the feeling, now that Aziz is safely in American custody, that he will be getting re-acquainted with people he has known for quite some time," said a former CIA officer who specialises in Iraq.

"The information that enabled the coalition forces to target Saddam in the opening hours of the war could only have come from someone like Aziz who had access to Saddam's inner circle."

There has been intense speculation about Saddam's fate since the attack on the bunker in the early hours of March 20. At first it was reported that Saddam had been killed in the attack, then it was suggested that he had suffered non-life threatening injuries that had been treated by a specialist team of Russian doctors.

Coalition officials appeared to confirm that Saddam had survived the initial strike when they bombed a restaurant complex in central Baghdad on April 7 at which the Iraqi dictator had been seen arriving with his younger son, Qusay, and other Ba'ath Party officials.

At the end of last week, however, President George W Bush said he believed that Saddam had either been killed or critically injured in the March 20 attack, and paid tribute to the "brave soul" who provided CentCom with the intelligence that enabled the attack to take place. Asked if the Iraqi spy was still alive, Mr Bush replied: "Yes he is. He is with us. Thank God."

Whether or not Aziz was responsible for providing intelligence about Saddam's whereabouts during the conflict, there is no doubt that the Iraqi dictator had become deeply suspicious about his deputy prime minister's intentions.

Relations between the two men had become strained in the aftermath of the Gulf war in 1991 when Saddam became concerned that Aziz, who was then his foreign minister, enjoyed too much popularity among Iraqis as a result of his well-publicised international diplomatic activities.

As the only Christian among the Sunni Muslim clique that controlled the Iraqi Ba'ath Party, Aziz has always been regarded as an outsider since he came to Saddam's attention in the 1970s for his staunch anti-Communist views, which he regularly aired in the columns of al-Thawra (The Revolution), the Ba'ath Party newspaper that he edited.

In recent years Aziz had been sidelined following his appointment as deputy prime minister, although he managed to retain his position on the all-important RCC, the Ba'athists' main decision-making body.

The only reason that Aziz managed to survive this period is that Saddam continued to rely on his expertise in foreign affairs, where his urbane charm enabled him to make an impact in countries that were eager to develop lucrative trade ties with Baghdad.

In the late 1990s, when Aziz failed to persuade the United Nations to lift the sanctions imposed on Iraq at the end of the Gulf war, Saddam briefly imprisoned the politician's eldest son as punishment.

In the weeks preceding Operation Iraqi Freedom, Saddam ordered the detention of several members of Aziz's family following suspicions that he was preparing to defect to the West.

When, shortly after the conflict started, however, Washington officials dropped heavy hints that the Iraqi official had defected, Aziz appeared before journalists in Baghdad angrily denouncing the claims, saying that he would "rather die" than be taken into custody by the Americans.

Aziz's surrender is undoubtedly an enormous propaganda coup for coalition commanders as he would never have contemplated surrendering if he thought there was any chance that Saddam or his two sons, Uday and Qusay, could continue to pose a threat.

Indeed, given his proximity to the regime, coalition commanders will be hoping that Aziz will be able to provide them with details of the fate of Saddam's family.

Whether he can bring any light to bear on the all-important issue of where Saddam's weapons of mass destruction arsenal is located is another matter.

Throughout the 30 years that Aziz worked for Saddam, he was never a member of the Iraqi dictator's inner circle and it is unlikely that he enjoyed a detailed knowledge of Saddam's biological, chemical and nuclear weapons programmes.

Pat Buchanan: If GOP has no room for The Donald's followers, it has no future

by Patrick J. Buchanan - August 14, 2015

In the Cleveland debate, Donald Trump refused to commit to support whomever the Republican Party nominates in 2016.

Trump would be wise to maintain his freedom of action.

For there is a plot afoot in the Washington Post Conservative Club to purge Trump from the Republican Party before the primaries begin.

“A political party has a right to … secure its borders,” asserts the Post’s George Will, “a duty to exclude interlopers.” Will wants The Donald “excommunicated” and locked out of all GOP debates until he kneels and takes a loyalty oath to the nominee.

“Marginalizing Trump” carries no risk of “alienating a substantial Republican cohort,” Will assures us, for these “Trumpites” are neither Republicans nor conservatives. Better off without such trash.

The Post’s Michael Gerson says “establishment Republicans” must “make clear that [Trump] has moved beyond the boundaries of serious and civil discourse.” He loathes the Trumpites as much as Will.

Trump’s followers are “xenophobic,” Gerson tells CNN. They have a “resentment of outsiders, of Mexico, of China, and immigrants. That’s more like a European right-wing party, a UKIP or a National Front in France. Republicans can’t incorporate that.”

But if the GOP has no room for Trump’s followers, it has no future. For there simply aren’t that many chamber-of-commerce and country-club Republicans.

Gerson mentions with disgust the U.K. Independence Party and France’s National Front. What do those parties have in common?

Both are anti-New World Order. Both arose to recapture the lost independence and sovereignty of their nations from the nameless, faceless bureaucrats of Brussels, those EU hacks who now dictate the kinds of laws and societies the Brits and French are permitted to have.

What motivates these folks is not all that different from what brought the farmers to Lexington Green and Concord Bridge and inspired colonists to stand by the original Tea Party boys in Boston.

New parties arise and outsiders are drawn into politics to fill voids and vacuums created by the failure of incumbent parties and politicians...

 Fox News Ratings Based Upon Newspeak
General News
James Hall – August 12, 2015
silver-datalab-gopfox.jpg

Fox News Ratings Based Upon Newspeak

Political conservatives with a high degree of business savvy are able to see through the facade which Fox News has become. The recent orchestration of the Republican presidential debate was a huge ratings success hitting a record 24 million viewers. The early debate gained 6.1 million eyeballs. The contrast between the two venues could not be greater. The high level of discourse among the seven second tier candidates far surpassed the P.T. Barnum spectacular, which was scripted as an episode of desperately seeking jumbo. The GOP establishment elephant was center stage, but the RINO’s suffer from myopia as they disrespect grassroots conservatives.

The business of mega media political productions rakes in the loot. Yet, the Roger Ailes version of “Wag the Dog” screenplay using a frenzied crowd of spectators as a backdrop exemplifies that entertainment values trump substance dialogue. The lesson that was grippingly vivid is that the network motto, We Report, You Decide no longer applies, especially when the objective is to bushwhack opponents that may pose a threat to the Jeb Bush dynasty.

The good news is that the theatrics backfired with genuine conservatives. The righteous anger towards the establishment is real and deep. No matter what one thinks of Donald Trump, the attention galvanized that opposes open borders and destructive free trade agreements has lifted this campaign cycle to substantive issues.

Fox News sunk to an all-time low that will linger and discredit their brand for years to come.

Mark Levin has it correct. FOX NEWS, MEGYN KELLY ‘HOSTED A NATIONAL ENQUIRER DEBATE, NOT A REPUBLICAN DEBATE—OWE AMERICAN PEOPLE AN APOLOGY’

“Levin objected to the format where in which we heard six or seven minutes each from the ten candidates, and a third of the time the Fox moderators dominated the event. Fox brags they had 24 million viewers, he pointed out, but he concluded that it amounted to an “embarrassment as far as I’m concerned… while the New York Times and CNN praised the event, I considered it an exploitation of the process, which is supposed to inform the American people. Not gotcha questions, not gossip… I think the American people are owed an apology.”

Pat Buchanan made a simply profound appraisal in Taking Down The Donald.

“When did that become the job of a “moderator” who is supposed to be more of a referee than a middle linebacker?

Who decided to turn the first Republican presidential debate into a two-hour version of “The Kelly File”?”

That’s exactly why sincere Americans need to turn their backs on the propaganda and newspeak of the mass media whose mission is to protect and serve the financial corporatist elite. The 9:00 PM debate was not a high water mark of journalism, but was a giant step into the quicksand of disgust and distrust.

While informed activists understand this viewpoint, the vast majority of the spoon feed serfs will hold onto their flimsy world view of political choices that are pushed down their throats. The columns, Donald Trump Won’t Win A War Against Fox News provides stats that should disturb any thinking person.

“According to a March Quinnipiac poll, 80 percent of Republicans say they trust Fox News either “a great deal” or “somewhat,” as compared to 16 percent who say they trust the network “not so much” or “not at all.” Those numbers are almost identical to the high marks Democrats give MSNBC and the other news networks.”

The destructive notion that any of the media conglomerates can be trusted to tell the truth is symptomatic of the sickness that prevails from a society boasting a government school education, a culture based upon television programming and an electorate that votes on the basis of celebrity recognition.

Now in a free enterprise system, making money is not a crime. The Tree of Liberty forum post suggests that the big show has financial rewards.

“Yesterday, nj.com reported on the New Jersey governor’s $250,000 ad buy on Fox News, and, today, the same source reported on an additional buy via Christie’s super PAC, America Leads, bringing the governor’s total to $1 million in Fox News advertising.”

What is amazing from a debate format, hosted by broadcast and cable networks is packaging the hyped up drama and injected controversy is the model for marketing of a presidential debate reality show that has more in common with an episode of House of Cards, than a serious dialogue on issues.

Personality has obviously become more important than debating the future of the country. In the Marshall McLuhan media age “The Medium is the Message”, and now in the tweeter environment, the initial public reaction is based upon the slimmest of intellectual acumen.

It is noteworthy to cite that Facebook partnered with Fox News to put on this theater of the absurd. Breitbart offers the point of view that, The genius of Roger Ailes: How FACEBOOK/FOX GOP Debate will revolutionize media economics.

“The Facebook co-sponsorship increased interactions on the Fox News Channel’s Facebook page view by 74 percent from a typical day in July. The 10 million Facebook video views were up 190 percent compared to the daily July 2015 average.

By broadening Fox’s audience, which skews conservative, with Facebook’s users, who skew liberal, Ailes demonstrated that on-air news can thrive from a connected and mobile-screen experience.”

How far this country has fallen since the orderly, informative and substantive debates dating back to the last century when the League of Women Voters provided the organization. From their October 3, 1988 press release, Withdraws Support from Final Presidential Debate.

"It has become clear to us that the candidates' organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity and honest answers to tough questions," Neuman said. "The League has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public."

Into this void, the likes of Fox News jumped in with both feet. Show business replaced honest News reporting.

 ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIME ACCOUNTS FOR OVER 30% OF MURDERS IN MANY STATES
International Politics

by Tom Tancredo
August 8, 2015

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump deserves credit for forcing all 17 Republican candidates to talk about the social costs of illegal immigration, but it is not “Trump’s issue.” We will be making a fatal mistake if we let the media discuss it that way.

As Ann Coulter has pointed out, this is the most critical issue of the 2016 race because this is the issue that will define whether or not there will even be an American nation recognizable as the “home of the free and land of the brave.”

But illegal immigration is not “Ann Coulter’s issue” any more than it is “Tom Tancredo’s issue.” It is America’s issue — not only because it will define America in the 21st Century but because it also defines American elections and who will be voting in elections in 2020 and beyond. It also illuminates the power of the mainstream media to keep issues off the national stage.

Think of illegal immigration this way: If the liberal media can keep illegal alien crime out of the “kitchen table debate,” they can keep any issue out of the debate. And they will if they can get away with it. For those reasons, illegal immigration is much more than an issue of public policy; it is the poster child for media malpractice.

The media’s attempt to suppress public awareness over illegal alien crime and the effects of illegal immigration on American workers’ jobs and wages is nothing less than censorship on a massive scale. We need to start talking about it in those terms and hold the media accountable for the lack of ethical standards.

The mainstream media – including, sadly, major segments of the presumably conservative media, like the Wall Street Journal — are working overtime to keep the American public and the American voters in the dark on the scope of illegal alien crime. The murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco exposed only the tip of a massive iceberg, and the media establishment is desperate to avoid dealing with the iceberg underneath.

Let’s look at a few numbersYou haven’t seen them in the New York Times, Atlanta Constitution, or the Miami Herald, nor have they been featured on NBC Nightly news or CNN. So, the average American is blissfully unaware of them.

  • Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%.
  • During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.
  • That 38% represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643...

 Mark Frauenfelder: The Algorithm of Geek
General News

by Todd Brendan Fahey
RealitySandwich.com


He was that kid in the fourth grade and you could always get the answers from him on a test; he knew what made the mood ring work (“Thermochromism,” of course: “They use it in baby bottles, so your little brother doesn’t scald his lips if yer Mom loads it too hot…y’know, just because she’s yer Mom doesn’t mean she knows everything…”).  By high school, he’d be able to give advice to the cheerleaders as regards relative efficacy (and side effects) of IUDs vs. The Pill: Just because he read a lot.

You’d see him from time-to-time—on a lacrosse field, where he was probably team captain (and you were only sitting nearby, killing off a beer and getting a tan); or after graduating…he’d be cutting up ClipArt for a ‘zine he was making in a tony loft high above the stank of Skid Row, and you’d bump into him on the way to score acid from another flat-mate in the next room.  He’d always smile.

You knew he’d hit it big—and he did, like when he got a gig writing for Playboy magazine…for five or six years; that he married the prettier sister of Christy Canyon was just to be expected.  He’d get you backstage passes to the O’Farrell Theater, too—but he couldn’t join in for that Board Meeting in Palo Alto or Menlo Park or wherever.  Something in his DNA, was what you had always suspected.  As drinks the Irishman, Mark Frauenfelder just always had it: The Algorithm of Geek.

unnamed-6

Todd Brendan Fahey: You seem to be that kid who brought something new to school every week, and whom other kids grouped around to check out the New, Cool & Weird.  Am I off in my assessment?  If not, tell us about when you first began becoming aware of this aspect of your being; what “new shit” were you discovering before any of your other youthful peers were?  And how did this lead to the novelty bent that is bOING bOING/Boing Boing?

Mark Frauenfelder: Probably 1974, when my dad brought home an HP, I think it was an HP 65 program called “Calculator”—it was a calculator that used these magnetic cards to load programs into it, and I remember it came with a moon-landing program—a simulation—and you would enter the amount of fuel that you wanted to use up as you were trying to land a lunar lander on the moon without having it crash into the surface of the moon…in other words, to get a soft landing.  I was just fascinated by that.

I think around that same time was when the first issue of Kamandi, by Jack Kirby, came out, and that’s when I started falling in love with comics.  Before that, I was just reading things like Richie Rich and Archie and wasn’t really that interested in superhero comics, and then when Kamandi came out it changed my whole view of what comic books could be and what they could accomplish.  I really loved it.

And so those two things, I think—computers and comics—that kind of steered my life in that direction.  After that, I was really into things like Edgar Rice Burroughs and Frank Frizetta; uh, shortly after that I started working at a comic book store and discovered underground comics at a pretty early age, loved the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers and everything that Robert Crumb did, and that was, ah, you know, that was the beginning of a long love of alternative media and technology and other geeky things.

The craze of “‘zines” [Definition: Largely pulp, but sometimes embedded on floppies, indie journals, which ran the gamut of interests and fetishes] was the rave amongst twentysomethings of the early- to mid-1990s.  One of the standouts, surely, was bOING bOING, which you created and which I was turned onto by a pal who was living in downtown Los Angeles at the time, while I was living in Santa Barbara.  What inspired you to “start your own magazine” and what differentiated bOING bOING from the dozens/hundreds of other ‘zines which became assembled in the seminal ‘zine-list magazine Factsheet Five?

I learned about zines from an article in a 1987 issue of The Whole Earth Review (http://www.wholeearth.com/issue-electronic-edition.php?iss=2057) This issue was themed “Signal” and it was edited by Kevin Kelly. It was basically the prototype for Wired magazine, which Kevin co-founded in 1993. I was a mechanical engineer in San Jose at the time, not really liking my job, and this issue blew my mind. One of the articles was about zines written by Jeanne Carstensen. I was astonished by how many zines were out there. from the article I learned about Factsheet Five, a directory of zines. I ordered a copy and when through it was a highlighter, ordering dozens of zines by mail directly from the publisher. When I got them I was hooked. They were funky, and eclectic, and loaded with crazy outsider information. It inspired me to start self publishing. I made one issue of a zine called Important Science Journal, which was really just Crowleyania, Fortean phenomena, and secret societies. Then I did two issues of a mini-comic called Toilet Devil (Koko the talking ape calls people toilet devils when she is mad at them). Later that year my wife Carla and I decided to start a zine about cyberpunk, indy comics, brain technology and high weirdness. We named it bOING bOING because there were a few other zines out there with sound effects for names (HonkBlab, etc) and we liked that.

Can we agree–or, do you feel that, as I do–the advent of the World Wide Web in 1994 took most hipsters minds off of indie print publications and subsequently sucked the life straight out of “the ‘zine movement”?

Yes, I agree. It happened to me, but the full story is a bit more complicated. I was happy running bOING bOING as a print zine, but in 1994 the two largest independent magazine distributors went bankrupt, owing bOING bOING about $30,000. So the Web became a much more attractive option as a way to publish. There are no printing costs, mailing costs, or inventory costs. The zine world still exists, but it’s nothing like it was in the early 90s.

bOING bOING and Mondo 2000 are cited, correctly, as being two of the seminal engines of cyberpunk–that forward-thinking, irreverent vision of “what life can be if we decide to make it so.” Rattle on, if you’d please, about the human crossover between these two great publications. Cast, character, friendships, enemies, alliances. Just go buckwild.

The predecessor to Mondo 2000 was a magazine called High Frontiers. Carla and I came across it when R.U. Sirius and Queen Mu were hawking it at a Timothy Leary stand-up show in San Francisco in 1985 or 1986. It was the poster-size second issue – with a 17″ x 11″ bright pink cover. It had a drawing of Art Linkletter’s head, saying “Kids Do the Darnedest Drugs.” It also had a 3-eared Mickey Mouse holding some blotter LSD with the CIA logo on it. It was one of the coolest magazine covers I’ve ever seen and it still is. RU was this grinning hobbit-looking character with a floppy hat with a Andy Warhol button on it. Queen Mu was a very delicate blond woman with Stevie Nicks clothes and granny glasses and she a permanent blissful smile and didn’t say much. I bought a copy and it made me fall in love with the idea of magazine publishing. Somehow I found out that RU and Mu were hosting something in Berkeley called the High Frontiers Monthly Forum and so Carla and I started going to those. They were great. Rudy Rucker did a reading for his novel Wetware at one event. He was and is one of my favorite authors. He’s the most cyberpunk of all the cyberpunk authors, because he thinks about how technology affects human relationships...

 Playing the Trump Card for Political Correctness
International Politics
donaldtrumpmakeamericagreat.jpg

Playing the Trump Card for Political Correctness

The hideous disgust, that so many American have for politics, has raised its wretched head once again. The culprits are familiar. The tactics are well established. And the source of the slime comes out of a pathetic nihilism that is known as “Political Correctness”. The cultural assault that has turned political dialogue into an authoritarian inquisition lies at the foundation of much of what is wrong with public life. Free Speech does not exist for those, who presume to challenge the sacred tenants of totalitarian assimilation. Any society that punishes someone who opposes the mythical postulates that racism, equal rights and a collectivist world view is dangerous. When the only allowable viewpoint is dictated by Marxist comrades, coexistence is not possible.

The dikes of civil dialogue have been undermined with a vicious attack and in a detestable manner that is the very definition of mean-spirited. Pray tell, the “PC” crowd is the epitome of hypocrisy and deceit. In their perfect government economic world, the very idea of conducting useful and productive business is abhorrent to worshippers of these disturbed redistribution proponents.

Thus, the mere notion that a non politician could be considered as a viable candidate for public office gets the gullible moveon.org true believers dancing to the tune of the Soros manipulators, who perfect the gatekeeper strategies to eliminate any real competition to the status quo.

So under such circumstances, it would be expected that Donald Trump will become the latest target of the New World Order cabal of demonic commissars. How dare the “Donald” take exception to the singular narrative of progressive doctrine and expose the ugly underbelly of open borders.

In his presidential announcement, the politically incorrect candidate defines the nature of the struggle. Donald Trump Transcript: ‘Our Country Needs a Truly Great Leader’ lists his pitch and call to action. Such moxie is taboo in the establishment corridors of the bi-partisan party club. So the expected firestorm coming out from confronting careerist scoundrels illustrates that his is hitting a raw nerve. The established order; from gutless politicians, to media whores and pseudo pundits have declared war.

National oblivion is a cardinal objective that is transforming America into a third world cesspool. A sure sign that his message resonates with ordinary citizens come out of familiar fellow travelers, Hollywood Mocks Donald Trump's Announcement That He's Running for President.

“Donald Trump's Tuesday morning announcement that he's running for president was quickly greeted by jokes on social media from many in the entertainment industry.”

Contrast this attitude with his support from the grassroots.

After taking second place in the latest New Hampshire polls, Trump is also claiming the silver in Iowa -- where he traveled hot off his announcement -- claiming 10% of support among likely caucus-goers, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.”

The disconnect between a traditional conservative society and the brave new world of autocratic “No Tolerance” has never been wider entering this presidential cycle. Add to this mix the rip snorting attacks against Carly Fiorina for daring to expose the wicked queen of sleaze, Hillary Clinton. The mere notion that a woman would turn on her gender over policy issues just cannot be allowed, since keeping the purity of the autocrat message overrides personalities and ideological differences.

Only allegiance to the merging of America into the global NWO hegemony is permitted. Both Trump and Fiorina are not elected officials looking to advance a career that typically requires selling one’s souls to international finance and global governance.

Imposing and enforcing a rigid compliance to the didactics of “Political Correctness” is the supreme prime objective in selecting a President. In order to run for the privilege of occupying the oval office, the purity of message must be adhered to during the selection charade.

Just the notion that a candidate will speak the truth about illegal immigration translates into a campaign of scorch earth carnage. What Trump's Poll Numbers Mean argues.

“We can’t predict what the information context will be in various states right before Republicans vote in primaries. We can say that by then it will depend on recent events and on the orchestrations of party actors -- with favored candidates reaping positive publicity.”

On this last point, regarding positive publicity, who can dispute that the entire arsenal of mainstream media is focused on blowing Trump out of the waters before his traction, based upon public discontent, builds.

Add to this pressure cooker the onslaught terminations from NBC, Univision, Macy’s and a vivid portrait of revenge and fear emerges from the establishment. Such a controversy only exists because Trump is using anti-establishment rhetoric in his campaign and his message is falling on eager ears of sincere nationalists.

The alleged lunacy, in reality is a factual assessment that the Mexico regime is turning America into a dumping ground for undesirables is both fair and a truthful contention. An outcry that any discussion that criticizes or condemns a policy or practice that is fundamentally destroying the nation is sophistry or outright subversion.  

Nonetheless, that is exactly the “PC” environment that exists in the popular culture.

When the anointed lackeys are instructed by Alfonso Aguilar, a Republican who leads the American Principles Project's Latino Partnership, GOP candidates urged to condemn Trump, he is playing into the hands of the social engineers, who have destroyed any heritage and sound principles for an orderly society.

"The time has come for the candidates to distance themselves from Trump and call his comments what they are: ludicrous, baseless, and insulting," Aguilar said. "Sadly, it hurts the party with Hispanic voters. It's a level of idiocy I haven't seen in a long time."

One need not like Trump as a person or a candidate to acknowledge that Aguilar’s admonitions are systematic of the decay that has institutionalized the country. Allowing unlimited migration into our country produces the exact results that Trump articulates.

Yet, the drumbeat is to isolate Donald Trump to the pit of irrelevant punishment because he has the guts to tell the truth to a public yearning for straight talk and bold action.

That’s the reason he is so dangerous to the globalists who have conquered our Republic. Just analyze the subtle slam at Trump from the New York Times.

“Mr. Trump could unite the most vituperative, fact-averse denouncers of President Obama (he was a champion of the "birther" camp that questioned whether the president was actually born in Hawaii); the many upwardly aspirational people who have attended his motivational speeches or purchased his business books; and at least some golfers who have played on his courses. It seems a stretch to think he will generate much support from the wealthy Republican establishment: Even in New York City, business leaders have long held Mr. Trump at arm's length.”

Adding more fuel to the firestorm, the Daily Caller reports in, Legal Experts: NYC Mayor Action Against Trump ‘Not the American Way’ that commissar NYC mayor Bill de Blasio pushes the “Political Correctness” doctrine into extreme mode. Even Alan Dershowitz says enough is enough.

“The city was reviewing all of Trump’s contracts. Now civil liberties advocates are striking back at the mayor’s proposed action, which Dershowitz said was “plainly unconstitutional.”

They point to a landmark 1996 Supreme Court ruling that overwhelmingly declared it was unconstitutional to tie governmental contracts to a person’s beliefs.

“The city says, ‘We don’t want to renew it because we don’t like your speech.’ That would presumptively violate the First Amendment,” noted UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh in a DCNF interview. “The statement by the Mayor is a real danger to public debate,” he said, charging it would set dubious precedent for all city contractors, big and small.”

Welcome to the outer limits of civilization. The radical left authoritarians are the foe of the American experience that has offered an opportunity for inclusion to assimilate into a framework of opportunity and responsibility.

In the Political Correct society of “I see a racist behind every tree”, you have a breed of intellectual cripples, who do not have the ability to think, much less accept truth over fiction.

American is rapidly failing on all levels and there is no political solution to reverse this trend without a total repudiation of the “PC” culture.

It is because of this reason that Trump is relevant. Listening to the cowards in the Republican Party establishment is settling for de Blasio light, awaiting the next sellout of time-honored values.

Ignoring the nature of the cultural war on logic, facts and truth, guarantees defeat in the battle against the “PC” socialists. The empty dream of the rule of the proletariat has always been the invention of the financial elites to disguise their actual direction behind class warfare.

Using Trump as a scapegoat is pitiful. If extremists of any ideology accept the false dogma of zero tolerance, they are the real racists. For genuine lovers of liberty, keeping the stars and bars in historical context becomes a banner of defiance against “Political Correctness”.

 Welcome to Hillary Island, a Pleasant Little Police State
International Politics

by Olivia Nuzzi
June 13, 2015
TheDailyBeast.com

For the first big speech of her 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton turned a little-known strip of New York into a serene summertime autocracy, pleasant and creepy at the same time.

It’s an odd sensation to be sitting on the back of a golf cart, holding on for dear life, as a member of Hillary Clinton’s security team—bald and meat-headed, his blazer straining to remain stitched around his bulky arms—speeds like O.J. Simpson in order to deliver you to a secure location. This can happen, I now know, if you happen to make the mistake of walking down the wrong pathway—of a public park—on your way to a Clinton speech.

“Get in!” he barked. Then, a sigh: “Not your fault.” That’s just the way things are around here.

Here would be Hillary Island—formerly Roosevelt Island—a strip of land located in the middle of the East River between Manhattan and Queens that some 10,000 New Yorkers call home. More specifically, here is Four Freedoms Park—a grassy island enclave named for the Four Freedoms FDR spelled out in his 1941 State of the Union speech: Freedom of speech, of worship, from the want, and from fear—where the Clinton team has assembled a red and blue stage, in the shape of an H, for her to pace on as she delivers her first major campaign speech.

Clinton formally declared her candidacy for the Democratic nomination almost exactly a month ago, in April, with a 2:15 video. “Everyday Americans need a champion,” she said then. “And I wanna be that champion.”

Since that time, Clinton has not been heard from much as she has traveled around, talking to some voters and ignoring questions from the media and trying to seem as normal as possible despite being anything but. Saturday’s event was designed to highlight her champion-ness by contrasting her with the New Deal Democrat, whose Four Freedoms she has attempted to mimic with her own “Four Fights,” the economy, families, campaign finance and national security...

 Games Politicians Play (or: "Psychopathy in High Places")
International Politics

The career political class is the quintessential predatory clique. If you remember and understand any aspect about politics, let it be the nature of the people who devote their lives to a band of thieves. Forget about the seeming dissimilarities in ideology, the political culture maintains a common conduct. Ignore the rhetoric that resembles opposing viewpoints, the club of controllers protect each other. And if you ever believed in heroes and are still waiting for a savior, your disappointment will eventually turn into despair. What sustains the process of government is the deception of its vice and the refusal of the public to admit that the game never changes...

 Urban Military Martial Law
Privacy

by James Hall
May 2, 2015

Are you ready for a “Long Hot Summer”? The prospects for urban riots are hyped as a breach of domestic security. The mass propaganda media does not waste a moment to ratchet up the tension and fear that torching neighborhoods will come to a community in your area. If people were able to apply critical thinking, they would realize that local incidents are being managed to increase and spread discontent nationwide. That asphalt jungle is paved with assault vehicles moving into place before your own eyes. The purpose is to manage disorder with the imposition of military tactics. As urban fires burn, advocates of an authoritarian police state implement their master plan for the final destruction of America...

 COURT: WARRANTLESS CELLPHONE TRACKING NOT ILLEGAL SEARCH
Privacy

BY CURT ANDERSON 
May 5, 2015

AP LEGAL AFFAIRS WRITER

MIAMI (AP) -- Investigators do not need a search warrant to obtain cellphone tower location records in criminal prosecutions, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday in a closely-watched case involving the rules for changing technology.

The Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, overturning a three-judge panel of the same court, concluded that authorities properly got 67 days' worth of records from MetroPCS for Miami robbery suspect Quartavious Davis using a court order with a lower burden of proof.

In its 9-2 decision, the 11th Circuit decided Davis had no expectation of privacy regarding historical records establishing his location near certain cellphone towers. The records were key evidence used to convict Davis of a string of armed robberies, leading to a 162-year prison sentence...

The following originally appeared in High Times, November 1991

Preface 

There was a time in my life, late Spring of 1990, when I found myself worrying about the little things: the car that had been in my rearview mirror for several miles and many odd street changes, or the sonar blip somewhere in the bowels of my phone line to which I could set my watch, or whether this turn of the ignition key would be the last move I would ever make.  My then-literary agent–William Stankey, whose representation I shared with Hunter S. Thompson–used to kid me about it: “God damn, your phone is fucking lousy!  They’ve got you bugged from here to gone!”  And according to persons I trust and who have intimate familiarity with such things, yes, “they” did and had, and is why I fled Los Angeles in the middle of the night late that year and have been discrete with mine address ever since.

In 1989 I had stumbled upon “Captain” Al Hubbard from having read the two seminal nonfiction works surrounding the origins of LSD: Acid Dreams and Storming Heaven.  Neither satisfied nor satiated with the thin chapters in each, I set out for myself the goal of knowing more about this mysterious force than anyone alive.  Through the aid of a professor at University of Southern California, the late Dr. Paul Gillette, who knew of my…interest in LSD, I would soon gain the phone number of Dr. Humphry Osmond, a Scottish psychiatrist who had turned Aldous Huxley onto mescaline and which inspired The Doors of Perception; Dr. Osmond would, for his own reasons, turn me onto the phone numbers of everyone who had ever been associated with Alfred M. Hubbard, and this article would complete itself in late-1991.

The journey went on and I would write a novel, Wisdom’s Maw, that was and still is considered untouchable by New York’s “literary mafia” (to cop a phrase from Timothy Leary, whom I interviewed several times by phone and finally in person in 1992).  According to Bill Stankey, every publisher in New York had read the manuscript and all deemed it “subversive and potentially libelous,” and so with middle finger upturned, I formed my own small press imprint, Far Gone Books, and published it myself in 1996.  This is a flashback that should make RealitySandwich readers smile.

You will not read about him in the history books. He left no diary, nor chatty relatives to memorialize him in print. And if a cadre of associates had not recently agreed to open its files, Captain Alfred M. Hubbard might exist in death as he did in life–a man of mirrors and shadows, revealing himself to even his closest friends only on a need-to-know basis.

They called him “the Johnny Appleseed of LSD.” He was to the psychedelic movement nothing less than the membrane through which all passed to enter into the Mysteries. Beverly Hills psychiatrist Oscar Janiger once said of Hubbard, “We waited for him like a little old lady for the Sears-Roebuck catalog.” Waited for him to unlock his ever-present leather satchel loaded with pharmaceutically-pure psilocybin, mescaline or his personal favorite, Sandoz LSD-25.

Those who will talk about Al Hubbard are few. Oscar Janiger told this writer that “nothing of substance has been written about Al Hubbard, and probably nothing ever should.”...
