To Kill an American

You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.

So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is . So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)

"An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.

An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as "native Americans".

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and/or for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. Americans welcome the best of everything...the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best services. But they also welcome the least.

The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America.

Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It's been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages---including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

Free Men Act Free--and are Not Marked

A rousing essay, but let's not confuse an individual American citizen with his government that is misusing his tax dollars and misbehaving around the world in his country's name. A brave American doesn't buy into arrogance--even an American form of triumphalism. America is only good as long as its humble and moral not just because it has the "America" brand label applied to it.

Free Patriotism or Coerced Patriotic Correctness?



1. If we were patriotic we'd impeach Bush/Cheney for the immoral occupation of Iraq for corporate profits from gullible tax payers and oil revenues they instigated by LYING to us in 2003. Motions to impeach these scoundrels are in Congress now. 4, 000 dead and 60, 000 wounded Soldiers for a corporate war for profits are high crimes that make Clinton's sexual antics look trivial in comparison, yet we impeached him out of our sex-obsessed Puritanism that hypocritically winks at violence.

Bush/Cheney did not invade Iraq for ANY of the reasons often cited. If they did as soon as Saddam was toppled the Iraqi Army would have been rehired back immediately as we did in Panama as we promised if they did not resist us. That was the plan. Ask LTG Garner who was denied the money he needed by the Bushies. Read Trainor/Gordon's book, Cobra II.

Bush/Cheney did a bait n' switch on us to have their corporations take over governing Iraq so they could siphon money from the tax payers and get the oil for themselves. Its an OCCUPATION RACKET. Occupying Iraq is a huge feeding frenzy for quack "security" and services companies to get-rich-quick using "war" as the ka-ching to open the American taxpayer's cash register.

R. Stephen Hanchett writes:

The war in Iraq can be best understood as an enormously profitable swindle. Bush even signed an executive order at the very beginning of the war making the companies engaging in racketeering immune from prosecution. We're now in the fifth year of the of what has become one of the most expensive and corrupt wars in American history, and yet the Bush administration has not litigated a single case against a war profiteer under the false claims act.

More than 70 American companies and individuals won up to $8 billion in contracts (many of them no-bid) for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan over the first two years. They kicked up to the family boss (George Bush ) a little over $500,000 in campaign contributions the first year alone, to help keep him in power. A year ago, an audit by the inspector general found no evidence of work done or goods delivered on 154 of 198 contracts. Detailing all the graft and corruption involved - in Halliburton alone - would probably take volumes, though we know that Cheney's stock options in Halliburton rose from $241,498 to over $8 million in only year. Meanwhile, Iraqi production of oil has plummeted, making both the oil companies and their partners in crime the Saudis, fabulously richer.

Americans need to face the FACT that Bush/Cheney are WAR CRIMINALS and don't even dare play that knee-jerk, you-are-a-liberal crap on me; Hillary Clinton & Hubby have about 100 MURDERED PEOPLE connected to them that they need to go to prison for. Barack Obama better have competent security because there's nothing she wouldn't do to become President.

Having said all of the above, you the reader are faced with a truth--Bush/Cheney are even more evil than the Clintons and need to be tried. Bush/Cheney have murdered 4, 000 American servicemen and wounded 60, 000 more. Don't let them get away with it because they hide behind the American flag.


The Democrats believe that if they impeach Bush he will go to war against Iran, declare martial law and cancel the 2008 elections ie; he is emperor Nero reincarnated who would burn America before being punished for his miss-deeds.

R. Stephen Hanchett writes:

Article Two of the Constitution outlines the powers of the presidency, and the final section reads: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Notice that it doesn't say that the Congress can remove officers of the executive branch for high crimes and misdemeanors if they feel like it - it specifically says that they "shall be removed." It is an imperative and a Constitutional obligation that Congress remove corrupt officials from our government, in the event that the Executive branch refuses to do so.

It is significant that this Constitutional obligation for Congress to impeach, try, and remove corrupt officials is not listed under Section 1, which lists the powers of Congress, but under Section 2, which lists the powers of the executive branch. The founding fathers purposely included this section as a vital check on executive power, and as a way of warning the executive branch that even though they have been given the power to enforce the laws, they themselves are never above the law. It was their way of both warning the president and obligating the Congress to enforce the rule of law. It was their way of ensuring that everyone remained equal under the law.

It follows that if Congress refuses to do its duty, they then become co-conspirators in breaking down the rule of law. Sometimes you have to do the right thing simply because it is the right thing to do. The Constitution was written by people who pretty much knew what they were doing. They certainly weren't perfect, and the Constitution isn't Holy Scripture, but it established a framework for maintaining the rule of law and resolving political crises. Believing in the Constitution means having the courage, not only to defend it, but to do what it says. It involves a certain measure of faith. Our political leaders talk a lot about the Constitution, the trouble is, they don't seem to have any faith in it.

Political parties have come and gone, been up and down, while constantly changing their positions throughout the history of the Republic. Only the Constitution is the same. Our government is so caught up in the political game that they have forgotten that their primary obligation under the Constitution is to maintain a government accountable to the people and accountable to the law. Democracy and the rule of law are two sides of the same coin, and you can't deface one without making the other side worthless. A government that's not accountable to the law is no longer accountable to the people either.

There is a grass roots movement for impeachment in America because people can feel their government slipping away from them. That we continue to escalate a war, which most people know has been a tragic mistake from the beginning, is symptomatic of the contempt that our government has for us. The American people understand that if we have been left to choose between two corrupt political parties, both of which refuse to obey the Constitution and uphold the rule of law, that we no longer have any meaningful role in selecting our government. A corporate aristocracy has assumed that role, and our new Constitution is their bottom line.

2. Placing cutesy ribbons or whatevers diverts attention away from our duty as Americans to not tolerate a fascist dictatorship in the executive branch becoming our form of government in violation of our Constitution.

3. Drastic reforms are needed to defend our nation that will not take place by lemming, Tory "Patriotic Correctness" fascism over the status quo. They include:

a. Actual physical border wall at our southwest manned by military servicemen

b. Denunciation of whatever lies Bush has told others about any North American Union that destroys the sovereignty of the U.S.

Satanist Traitor Bush's NAMU Map


Bush Perverted the Republican Party's Symbol to Satanic 666 Inverted 5-Pointed Stars


Original G.O.P. Mascot Pre-2000

Current Corrupted G.O.P. Symbol

Did you know that the Republicans changed the stars in their official elephant logo to three stars downward in the year 2000, the very year in which Skull & Bones George Bush was "elected" President? This Republican logo is the traditional elephant logo as this book front page cover demonstrates. The book is entitled, "The Pictorial History of the Republican Party", by Beryl Frank, published in 1980. As you can see, the stars on this elephant logo are the same as the traditional stars on an American Flag. On the GOP's official website the stars are facing downward. Click here to see. GOP.com

In witchcraft the pentangle is used with the "head" of the star pointed down, illustrating man worshiping Satan. When pointed down it also becomes the face of the goat. Satanists use a pentagram with two points up, often inscribed in a double circle to emphasize the exclusion of God, and sometimes with the head of a goat inside the pentagram. Why would a nation based on Christian principles install as its leader someone who was a member of a secretive satanic cult called Skull and Bones? After 8 years of leading our country deeper into the squalid sewer of torture and political corruption, it seems a little late to be asking such questions. But for the record, my understanding is that the stars were inverted and turned upside down when Bush was appointed president. They weren't like that before.

The Pentagram & the Pachyderm

The elephant/flag symbol on the left is the official icon of the GOP/Republican party. The red and white bars and three white stars on a field of blue are supposed to represent the American flag. But there's a problem. The stars are inverted, and instead of pointing up they point down. In that sense, it is the representation of an upside-down American flag.

There's no criminal penalty because it's considered free speech. Still, it's technically illegal to represent an American flag with the stars upside down.

The law entitled "Respect for the Flag," U.S. Code Title 4 Section 8(a ) reads "The flag should never be displayed with the union (the stars represent the union of the states) down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."

There is also section 8 (g) "The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature" That would supposedly include superimposing the American flag upon any design, picture, or drawing of an elephant.

And section 8 (i) reads: "The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever."That would certainly include using the flag to advertise your party affiliation. It seems pretty peculiar that the same party that every year tries to ram through a constitutional amendment to criminalize flag-burning and other desecrations, are themselves openly disrespecting the American flag in at least three different ways at once, and in countless millions of mailers, websites, and bumper stickers. But when is the last time you saw an American burning the American flag? Since there's no law criminalizing political hypocrisy, Republicans might do better pushing through a constitutional amendment against it, thereby killing two birds with one stone.

The interesting thing about a star is how easily it can be turned into a satanic pentagram. When it's pointing up it's a star and a symbol for good. When it's pointing down it's a pentagram, a sign of evil. "Let us keep the figure of the Five-pointed Star always upright, with the topmost triangle pointing to heaven, for it is the seat of wisdom, and if the figure is reversed, perversion and evil will be the result." Franz Hartman Magic, White and Black. (1895).

"A reversed pentagram, with two points projecting upwards, is a symbol of evil and attracts sinister forces because it overturns the proper order of things and demonstrates the triumph of matter over spirit. It is the goat of lust attacking the heavens with its horns, a sign execrated by initiates." Levi Eliphas Transcendental Magic, its Doctrine and Ritual. (1855)

The 5-pointed star is a symbol for man, and the points were originally associated with spirit and the four elements - earth, water, fire, and air. When the point or head of the star is facing up it's symbolic of spirit ruling over matter, and when down, it symbolizes humanity overcome by our most destructive instincts like greed and violence. Facing up towards the heavens we are under God's authority, and when reversed, under the devil's rule.

In witchcraft the pentangle is used with the "head" of the star pointed down, illustrating man worshiping Satan. When pointed down it also becomes the face of the goat. Satanists use a pentagram with two points up, often inscribed in a double circle to emphasize the exclusion of God, and sometimes with the head of a goat inside the pentagram.

Another website points out how "Symbologists (like that idiot Robert Langdon in "The DaVinci Code") agree that the five pointed star, or pentagram, is an ancient symbol for the number "6". Let me spell this out. Three pentagrams (on the Republican elephant) equals 666. This is the symbol for my arch-enemy, Satan, or his minion, the Anti-Christ. Why in the world would our symbol have the emblem of Satan on it?"

Why indeed. Why would an American president go around constantly flashing the devil's salute? Why would a 'Christian nation' install as its leader someone who was a member of a secretive satanic cult called Skull and Bones? After 7 years of leading our country deeper into the squalid sewer of torture and political corruption, it seems a little late to be asking such questions. But for the record, my understanding is that the stars were inverted and turned upside down when Bush was appointed president. They weren't like that before.

It should also be pointed out that using the elephant as a luck charm is a custom rooted in the Hindu religion of pagan India, where the god Ganesha, the elephant-headed son of Siva and Parvati, is worshiped as the god of good luck. The British overlords of India imported this pagan superstition into the west during the 19th century in the form of various good-luck elephant knick-knacks that became all the rage. The front story is that the Republican Party adopted the elephant symbol because of some obscure cartoon that appeared in Harper's Weekly in 1874. But the truth is that the elephant god Ganesha had already been established in the west as the pagan symbol of good luck. One thing more - the other representation of the same good-luck god Ganesha is the SWASTIKA, the symbol adopted by the National Socialist German Workers (NAZI) Party in the 1920's. The elephant god Ganesha bears the characteristic mark of the swastika in his hand.

The most remarkable thing about Bush's state of the Union address (beside the fact that he never admitted to the drastically deteriorating state of the union, as he was Constitutionally obligated to do) was his mindlessly cheerful disregard for all the suffering and death he has caused - and is still causing. As one blogger put it, "Bush seems almost pathologically detached from any real understanding of the effects of what he says and does. If you're him, that's probably a good thing. If you're anybody else, it's horrifying."

We live in a shallow, consumer-based society, and we are taught to focus on style rather than substance. We judge by the most superficial standards rather than considering their real effect. We see a leader who seems very cheerful and personable, and the fact that he's bankrupted the nation to enrich his class by torturing and murdering about a million Iraqis doesn't sink in. We look at a pagan Nazi elephant branded with three satanic pentagrams, and think it probably some innocent mistake, that perhaps it's more fashionable that way. We flock to hear a messianic candidate who says he's going to bring us all together and do great things, though he never gets around to saying exactly how and what. The advantage of only looking at the surface of things is that you never need to find out what's really going on. It makes life easier and less complicated in the short run, though it turns out badly in the end.

U.S. Military Satanic Symbols? Say it Ain't So! (It is So)

A Sailor writes:

"You know, the inverted stars reminds me of something I noticed long ago about USN ranks. Line officers wear upside down stars above the gold stripes on their dress coat sleeves and shoulder boards. Also, E-8 -- E-10 enlisted rank badges have inverted stars too. I've always thought this looked stupid and unprofessional, like somebody made a mistake, but I've also long suspected that there was more to it, since it's obviously intentional. Every time there has been a suggestion to turn the stars right side up, the idea has been shot down by the USN uniform board. Remember that the USN has an almost incestuous relationship with the English RN. We always copy everything they do, even our uniforms are virtually identical to theirs. England is the home of Freemasonry, and the assholes who run the Navy are usually hardcore Anglophiles. Could it be that there is a Masonic connection between our navy and theirs? I don't know for sure, but I suspect that the Navy brass is made up of Freemasons.

Check out these pictures of USN rank insignia:"


c. Laws passed that ANY attack on the U.S. by covert means be FULLY INVESTIGATED by an OBJECTIVE NON-U.S. GOVERNMENT AGENCY with PUBLIC OVERSIGHT BEFORE any retaliatory military action be taken; ALL evidences film, video, audio collected by U.S. citizens WILL REMAIN IN THEIR POSSESSION as a bulwark against criminal elements in the U.S. Government launching attacks against our citizens and/or covering it up using excuse of secrecy etc. Agencies can get COPIES of attack evidences but NEVER will they confiscate the originals whose contents WILL BE DISPLAYED TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC


d. Deletion of the President's 90-day war powers act which has been abused continually to get us stuck into never-ending wars that feed war profiteers

e. Elimination of the Bankers printing our money supply and charging us interest on it; CONGRESS should print our money not any greedy, immoral bankers


A commentator writes:

"This is absolutely right on target, right down the line. I agree 100% with every point. (I only recently just heard about the sham machinations that have changed the already too short 700-mile wall to a still shorter wall till finally it is now a joke, a 130-mile 'virtual wall,' which will still take 'years' to 'build,' whatever the hell that means.)

The whole world and national situation is becoming closer and closer to looking like Orwell's 1984."

Free Men Will Not Tolerate Being Marked


Aaron Russo warns us that America is being led into a fascist police state with a National I.D. card and eventual 666 "mark of the beast" with a RFID chip in the citizen's forehead. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Illuminati secret society member, Baron von Rothschild as he is known by some, or more properly as Amsel Rothschild, was reportedly quoted as saying the following political altruism back in the 1800's;

"Give me control of the economics of a country; and I care not who makes her laws."

We have a simple answer for him and his secret society, FUCK YOU.

"There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country -if the people lose their confidence in themselves - and lose their roughness and spirit of defiance."

FREE MEN DO NOT PLACE TRACKING DEVICES ON OR IN THEIR BODIES. (See movie; "Enemy of the State" with Will Smith and Gene Hackman)


A Brave American does not sit idle as his government directed by Bush administration Marxist-Leninist Leo Strauss neoscoundrels robs others of their freedom (imprisonment, death) in places like Iraq by military incompetence that tries to bomb rebels from the sky and kills innocent civilians who then become rebels who do things like put ads in papers to kill Americans. The corrupt U.S. Congress just passed illegal laws granting Bush the ability to treat anyone who opposes his evil bullshit an "enemy of the state" as the American people drone on in AmeroFascist lock-step. A Brave American realizes we have in SecDef Don Rumsfeld a false disciple of mental firepower bombardment who refused to place enough physical troops on the ground on the still very large planet Earth to block Osama bin Laden's escape from Afghanistan into Pakistan and to stop looting in Iraq after we toppled Saddam or provide the money to rehire the Iraqi Army veterans to restore governance--as we promised--who did as we told and didn't fight us when we invaded. Bush has destroyed the only stability mechanism keeping Iraq together, the Iraqi Army unleashing 3 violently opposed religious factions while building comfortable permanent bases full of Americans who look like they have no plan on leaving.

Let's hope in upcoming elections that another "9/11" false flag attack or convenient wag-the-dog war in Iran doesn't deter a bunch of Brave Americans from removing phony conservatives like Bush neocons from the Congress/Senate and later on elect a real President who represents the American people instead of appeasing the naive, great falling away "fundamentalist christians" while actually doing the bidding of the major corporations and secret societies.

THE CORPORATION: Psychology of Sociopaths

The original 23 chapters of the documentary, THE CORPORATION in order, here's a playlist:


Let's start living up to this claim of courageous American behavior for right by a social movement to understand who we are and our place in the world and then live accordingly. Lieutenant General James Gavin in 1968 in his book, Crisis Now came to the conclusion that America needs to reorganize its social fabric with corporations run by WE THE PEOPLE not THEY THE CORPORATIONS. Its time to live up to his egalitarian vision.


Moral Compass


"Belief in democracy does not mean simple lip service to the ideal that all men shall be free and shall continue learning how to govern themselves. It means strong self-discipline in behalf of this ideal."

--Brigadier General S.L.A. Marshall, 8 May 1958
St. Bonaventure University

The Brave American knows he has no more than 100 years of life but chooses to live life treating other people in the same dilemma with the maximum thoughtfulness and benevolence possible because he knows a higher being made us in the first place so EACH ONE OF US HAS HIGH VALUE PERIOD and expects us to do the best we can. The Brave American chooses to not live for the here and now and take from others because its the right thing to do even if there is no reward waiting for him in the next life. The Brave American knows that he himself and everyone else has a dark side which will result in misdeeds but chooses to resist these urges and not waste his limited years of life doing orchestrated evil. His life's goal is to be self-sufficient as much as possible so his energies can be directed to help others around him with candid and courageous truth telling combined with innovative ideas. The frontier and farmer American exemplifies this ideal that needs an urban and suburban equivalent. He realizes all money is, is a symbolic promise to get a desirable human behavior, nothing more. Money cannot buy happiness that must be felt within your own mind that comes from a fulfilling life interacting with other people along a moral compass.

Truth #1: The true political spectrum is CIRCULAR not linear

Current False Linear Political Spectrum



People are Good ........................... People are Bad

The problem is that if you take liberalism to its logical end without any rule of higher law morality, you get COMMUNISM, an alleged utopia of everyone being equal or in the other direction FASCISM, an alleged utopia of one man rule because everyone cannot be trusted. The problem is in BOTH end states, the people have to be FORCED at gunpoint to either share everything with everyone with a small minority "supervising" or to give up everything to a single man dictator.

Since both extremes are about FORCE and end up in both cases with TYRANNY, the political spectrum is really NOT linear but CIRCULAR since in the end whether you are going left or right (people are good or people are bad) BOTH DIRECTIONS LEAD TO THE SAME ROTTEN CONCLUSION: TYRANNY! Whether one is liberal or conservative is actually a "flavoring" or attitude that creates a bunch of words that can seduce the ("sheeple") people into thinking good things are happening when they might not.

Proposed True Circular Political Spectrum

Freedom vs. Control is THE central issue

Liberal vs. Conservative Attitudes/Flavoring are just on left or right of the Freedom vs. Control Circle. Staying at the top of the circle is the hardest; man's fallen nature pulls down institutions towards control and slavery. Right now, America has slipped down to NATIONALISM due to the un-elected influence of the Neocons on/in the Bush administration exploiting post 9/11 attack fears of the populace. The Bush administration has no respect for the rule of law and has violated the American Constitution for over 5 years without any public accountability and censure. Large corporations have "stacked the deck" against small companies as the post-WW2 militarization of the American economy has gone unchecked and spiralled into corruption and incompetence. Small federal elites try to handle the 300 million people and 3, 000 mile long nation's problems and the general public are told to shut up and stay out, when an "America's Most Wanted" TV show of known terrorists would result in them being round up quickly as in WW2 when German spies/saboteurs tried to operate here on U.S. soil. Clearly we are headed to FASCISM and loss of civil liberties in the name of "American Security".

Total Control

* Anarchy is disqualified because it is not a form of government. When anarchy begins to forment in lawless societies, a vacuum forms and left or right wing "flavors" of tyrants immediately take control.


A defense writer observes:

"The idea that the political continuum is circular rather than linear is not a new one. It has been posited for as long as I can remember; and is certainly true, if Communism and Fascism are two opposite poles on a linear political spectrum. There is much more that is suggested in the preceding discussion; but I confess that I am unable to follow most of it. I will further confess to confusion about some other aspects of the broader discussion of the nature of political disciplines; and I am a Political Scientist by training (University of Michigan and Georgetown University Graduate School) and upbringing (I was raised in a civil service household in Washington, D.C.).

I do know that while the assertion that Communism and Fascism are essentially similar is true; but that the popular and traditional conception that they represent opposite (Left and Right) poles on a linear spectrum is totally false. It is, as far as I can tell, an invention of the Communists used for propaganda purposes, and parroted (along with much else) by a slavishly loyal (and willfully ignorant) press and academia for generations.

The concepts of a political Left and Right originated (to the best of my knowledge) in early modern France, where the Parliament had organized seating along political lines, with the Socialists on the left, and the Monarchists on the right. The labels "Left" and "Right" thereby came to be associated with Socialism and Monarchism, respectively. Inasmuch as there are few Monarchists active in Western political circles today; one might question I there even exists a political Right in our country. Perhaps we have a contest between the political Left and Center, with the Right having long since disappeared (this is the part that I am unsure of).

That gets us to the question of Communism and Fascism, and the true nature of the latter. Communist, media, and academic propaganda notwithstanding, they are very similar, both occupying the LEFT side of the political spectrum. They are both outgrowths of, and subsets of, Socialism. Although we often misuse the word Fascism to mean anything authoritarian, or of which we disapprove, it is, in fact, a type of Socialism. Nazism (the National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party) was avowedly Socialistic. All of the great Fascists in history, like the Communists, were Socialists first. Communism and Fascism are both brutal, ruthless, and impossibly destructive totalitarian utopian fantasies that are prone to the murder of tens of millions and the enslavement of hundreds of millions. Both are based on fear, envy, and hatred of an "Other", with Communism focusing these emotions against imagined "class enemies" while Fascism focuses these on imagined "national enemies". What then is the distinction? It is much more subtle than is usually imagined. Communists avow the elimination of private property, with ownership of all property, wealth, and power devolving directly to the state (and its agents); while Fascism, in contrast, upholds a nominal right to private property, but only under the control of the state (and its agents). In both cases, all wealth and power, and in effect property itself, devolve directly or indirectly to the state; but under Fascism, the state fosters the illusion of private property (is it really private, after all, if ownership confers no real control). In contrast to both of these doctrines, modern Western societies are completely different, upholding true and meaningful private ownership of property, unless you don't pay your taxes (then you find out who really owns it).

Another distinction mistakenly posited below regards the nature of the ruling structure (a despotism versus an oligarchy). There is no inherent difference between the two on this score. They both tend to involve both, with despotism generally emerging as dominant in both.

Finally, the opening assertion that the rejection of the role of divine authority in politics and law tends to lead to the excesses of both Communism and Fascism is correct; not because there necessarily is a God who must be thus honored, but because that belief, whether true or not, holds all political doctrines to an ethical and moral standard outside and above themselves. It thereby exerts a (highly imperfect, but nonetheless real) controlling force that curbs the worst excesses to which the law and politics are susceptible. In the absence of the prevalence of this view, political doctrine is free to hold itself as the highest standard of morality and ethics, in effect, becoming a religion in its own right (even if Godless); and the true power of both Communism and Fascism lay in the fact that they were religions, religions that defined morality and ethics, and with no constraints on the use of deadly force against infidels or apostates. Some argue that Islam is like that today, differing from Communism and Fascism only in its recognition of God, but a God that resides within its religious/political framework, not above it. I do not know enough about Islam to assert an opinion on this; although this does seem to be true for some Muslims (hence the popularity of the term "Islamo-Fascism")."

A defense consultant notes:

"Absolutely concur!

BTW, the Libertarians, libertarians, Constitutionalists, etc. have been saying this for decades."

The TRUTH is never popular among us humans; lies are more comfortable and pleasant. This is why it takes LEADERSHIP, truly unselfish men who know the truth to convince the people to do the right things and not continue on the path of destruction.

Fascism by humans even with tortured Church backing is not moral

You will shocked to learn Hitler's Nazi fascist regime came to power because he was supported by allegedly good "Christian" protestants and mainly Catholics. The TV mini-series "Holocaust" showed that the Nazis were mostly Catholics which explains why that show will never be aired on national prime time TV ever again. The protestants are guilty, too because Martin Luther was full of anti-Jewish "Christ Killer" non-sense, too. True Christians that have the Holy Spirit in them will study the entire Bible to arrive at their belief systems, false christians just pick/chose from the Bible what suits their prejudices. The Bible clearly shows that the Jews/Israelites are God's chosen people and remain so even though they along wit the Romans (non-Jews) killed God himself, Jesus Christ on the cross 2, 006+/- years ago. While today's fundamentalist churchians realize this and are pro-semitic, they have adopted the same nation-state worship of Nazi Germany with their America-can-do-no-wrong idolatry as embodied by Hitler wannabe, NeroBush, whose family ties directly to German corporations that led to WW2 and the slaughter of 6 million Jews in death camps to feed their war machine. Today's false christian fascist scapegoat is the "raghead" Islamists who must be in their twisted eyes slaughtered for the sake of humanity; which plays right into the hand of the devil who wins either way.

When the Operation Paperclip German scientists came over to the USA they brought with them the disease of occult and false-christian fascism to create our own "black" projects underworld that continues to the present day. However, many folks are anal, linear type of thinkers who assume that the only way German fascism can perpetuate is if say von Braun has a son and he buys into it and has sons etc. etc. Not true. THE IDEA is what counts and it can spread rapidly without needing any kind of royal/satanic physical human body lineage, though if you need one, you have the NeroBush crime family. The German WunderWeapon IDEA is now today's "Revolution in Military Affairs" (RMA). Its simply snobby scientists and corporations saying their Cainlike FIREPOWER gadgets are all we need to win wars and we don't need to empower the unwashed Abels through low-tech MANEUVER, even though WW2 beat them by taking the land their labs needed to make their WunderWeapons.

If you read the web page on fascism and its next part on American fascism, you will see that America has indeed become a fascist nation headed towards a police state.

Fascism is not practical in the end when it brings us all to ruin

Replace "Jews" with "Liberals" and you will see the connection. Our failure has been to not fully understand and convey to the American people that blind obedience fascism simply DOES NOT WORK and brings humans to ruin every time its employed. They think that it does work if you are in a war or a bar fight. With this trumped up "terrsm" threat they still think giving military fascists a blank check is going to get the most efficiency needed to win, when the truth is, that CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM is needed to improve war means just like any other human endeavor to as much as possible stamp out errors. We did this in WW2 and we won, but it took men willing to lose their careers to blow-the-whistle on stupidity to get it corrected. The recent repudiation of NeroBush fascism in the mid-term elections shows the American people are starting to realize there ARE more ways to solve problems than signing over responsibility to a dictatorship. Much work remains to be done and after the mess in Iraq is over we can't sweep this all under the rug; we need a truly thinking and seeing moral values based military or we will not be around come the 22nd century.

Understand Fascism


This is the fable of the Pied Piper.

Social unity through a fascist dictatorship is efficient and feels wonderful. The problem is when you do it using MEN; human beings, total power corrupts and before long internal scapegoats are sought to kill (Jews, Liberals etc.) and when that's not satisfying to snobbiness, external scum are sought to be eliminated (wars).

The point here is the IDEA of fascism/dictatorship IS UNSOUND FOR FALLEN HUMAN BEINGS TO LIVE BY. The best government and civil society combination we can attain in this life is a THINKING AND QUESTIONING POPULACE WITH A LIMITED REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT WITH CHECKS/BALANCES where the opposition view to ANY issue is respected and considered. Groupthink stops working when its based on the wrong idea and the fascist/dictator mentality cannot take constructive criticism to correct this fatal path as we see with the NeroBush regime. Patriotism should mean INTEGRITY and morality that self-corrects the nation-state; this means you cannot worship Germany or America as automatically right because God has allegedly given them a blank check and a mission. To do otherwise and give your nation-state a blank check thinking your unthinking and uncritical devotion to FALLEN HUMAN BEINGS is indeed fascism that always ends up in disaster, not efficiency. The fallacy of the U.S. military blind obedience narcissistic culture is the root cause of our military failures to adapt in wars we have lost. In other words, human fascism doesn't work on a large-scale (nation-states) or on a small-scale (military organizations) and is a recipe for disasters.

American Fascism


To summarize; unbridled capitalism fed by the industrial age leads to wars and economic disasters--what do you expect when greedy men run things? We lost control of the American government with the direct election of Senators and automatic federal income tax in 1913.

FDR to save America's free thinking way of life has to implement mild fascism to defeat extreme German fascism. After the war, the Liberal Democrats as time goes on forget about the free-thinking parts of FDR and continue to support mild federal fascism, while the Conservative Republicans, who were always fascists increase the power of corporations while importing occult German WunderWeapon secret labs and secret government elites. So really our corporation-supplied choices are either mild fascism that may not do military conquests prefering internal social engineering (Democrats) or extreme fascism that wants an American empire through military conquests, and a police state here at home under a generalized false churchian religion and dictator of the U.S. (DOTUS) NeroBush (Republicans).

Social or Military Fascisms are not the answer

At the end of WW2 it was decided by the government that a permanent military industrial complex making war machines would remain because it would be too late to turn from plowsheares into swords in a nuclear bomb age. Plowsheares (Abel) social fascism vs. Swords (Cain) military fascism have been the corrupt choices presented to us ever since. Butter vs. Guns are not our only choices. A third choice is needed that doesn't line the pockets or puff up the egos of anyone, and that would be the Libertarian option of an America steered by WE THE PEOPLE not THEY THE CORPORATIONS as outlined in this Brave American proposal. If WE THE PEOPLE are in charge by direct involvement through our state government controlling our senators with THINKING and CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM at every level in every organization, we can be conditionally patriotic not unconditionally fascist. What this means is we must have the direct involvement of Americans in every aspect of government starting with 2 years of national service in a police, nursing, conservation, government and military option so we get Abel-like people into power who are not after ego, money and power for narcissistic self-validation. We need common-sense folks who will call BS what it is, BS. After 2 years of national service, these folks can stay in a reserve status if opting to be leaders to counteract the smug, mandarin attitude "lifers" in government service now. Reserve leaders with a civilian life and occupation must sit on the Joint Chiefs of Staff and offer alternatives to military practices other than expensive cash cows like a handful of overly large aircraft carriers for example. Reservists who simply want to get the job done will realize we need 100 less expensive aircraft carriers made from container ships to control the surface of the earth's oceans from enemy subs, aircraft and anti-ship missiles; just like FDR realized and forced the USN to do before WW2 began so we could win the war. The All Volunteer Farce composed of lifer egotists has failed us miserably in war, as it should whenever we try to foist dirty jobs off onto our weakest segment of society.

Universal Service will Get Non-Egotistical, Adults into the Military



The Brave American refuses to be a part of the 70% of all adult Americans using legal or illegal drugs that fuels the border incursions taking place all over our country. He chooses to live life sober and find and make his happiness that is real, not drug induced. He drug tests his kids and insists they be the same. If he drinks alcohol or smokes its in moderation short of becoming drunk or a chain smoker. He does not gamble at casinos to fund organized crime because he is content with the money he has and if he wants more, knows he must work for it. The Brave American gets in the best physical shape that he can before reaching 18 at least one time to set his adult fat cell count at the optimum amount so his adult years are lived with the best body possible. The Brave American realizes aging is caused by the rays of the sun, stays covered, uses sunscreen. The Brave American chooses to get all the sleep his body requires even if it means lowering his life expenses to meet his job income's work hours to get the time his body needs to restore itself. The Brave American drinks milk and exercises at least one hour a day, preferably walking, biking (ideal would be a pedal generator that charges 12v deep cycle batteries) and weight lifting.


The Brave American insists that the government orchestrate a national health care system emphasizing PREVENTATIVE medicine. Until this happens he provides it to himself and his employees in his small business.




The Brave American realizes learning and thinking is FUN because our universe is full of wonders even in its fallen state, and uses the internet to make web pages to reflect his learning. He realizes the current Dewey-based public educational system is designed to make learning a pain so as to create status quo compliant "sheeple". Instead of teaching social conformity, the Brave American home schools his children but has them engage in afterschool sports/clubs to maintain social interaction. The Brave American insists on a total reform of the American public school system to one where creation is taught, thinking encouraged by all school work done using HTML web coding and desktop computer ease of correction, A, B, C, D, F grading that flaunts zero-sum thinking replaced with 100% mastery learning based on group cooperation and success as the goal. The school system should teach how to operate and repair cars, homes and small businesses. The Brave American teaches his children these things hands-on regardless.


National Service


The Brave American realizes he owes at least 2 years of his life to America and gives this service through military, police, medical, church or forestry work. This will show our young people there is more to life than the narrow prejudices of their 50 mile radius or less home area circle of peers and relatives. 2 years of national service will not only make them take responsibility for themselves and their actions, it will provide a lump sum of money to go to college and buy a car with. National service will also show the older generation that the younger generation has actually put back into the nation and developed some loyalty. The Brave American parent is not naive however, the current volunteer U.S. military is run by narcissistic egomaniacs who order weak economic co-dependants to their deaths in wheeled trucks. He does not join nor have his children join the U.S. Army or marines until such time that national service or a culture of professional excellence takes over and removes the current criminally incompetent from positions of authority. Brave Americans call on a national requirement for citizenship that every American do 2 years of national service. This unconstitutional BS that "felons" (anyone who increasingly gets into minor legal trouble doing something society frowns upon and wants to blackball for the rest of their life) can have taxes taken from them but cannot vote must end. Whatever "felony" these people have done wrong, they are made to pay it back and they are brought back into the fold as fellow citizens not made into social outcasts for the rest of their lives.




Brave Americans have a basement or safe room with 2 weeks + supply of food and survival gear to ride out any natural or man-made disaster. If the disaster must be fled from, they have an escape package ready to go in their car and a non-major highway route to a safe location planned and rehearsed. Every Brave American has learned some form of martial arts and has at least a .38 revolver hand gun in the home to defend it from criminal attack. Home construction in the U.S. must turn away from fire risk wooden structures towards concrete and underground types that can also resist adverse weather effects. We must wake up and realize life here on earth is a science fiction movie not a country bumpkin anti-technology western. Our earth is moving at 66, 000 mph around the sun through hostile space. We need to wake up and realize we are all living on a giant "spaceship earth" whose atmosphere though protective is still lethal if we are without shelter.


The Brave American turns in to INS the names and whereabouts of all illegal aliens he encounters.

OFFICIAL CONGRESSIONAL DOCUMENT: Confronting the Threat at SW Border of U.S.


The above report from the U.S. House of Representatives goes into great detail on the severe threat attacking our southern borders...this report damns any foolish notions of a "virtual" fence being considered to nullify the will of the American people that our border be PHYSICALLY CLOSED.

He demands that the State and Federal governments physically close our borders and stop all illegal infiltration before a saboteur sets off a WMD device and wipes out a major American city killing millions of people.  


Brave Americans know the earth is going to be hit by major environmental disasters and insist that ISO container shelters be bought and be ready in the thousands to be "mini-Noah's Arks" to save millions of Americans when a major destructive force hits. Brave Americans know that the current federal government is run by small selfish elites who have themselves covered in major disaster but are content to watch the rest of the American populace die by the thousands when a disaster strikes.   


The Brave American wants a HALDANE Board of military reformers to advise Congress on ALL military affairs to counter the schemes of the corrupt generals and corporations and think-tankers (MICC-TT) who believe in push-button wars through mental gadgetry executed by underlings they look down upon in the military narcissist caste system and to start getting professionals promoted to lead our armed services using inspired MANEUVER once national service injects some adult citizens into the military. Excellent MICC-TT Documentary: "Why We Fight" videos



This is an excellent film explaining the MICC-TT and also slams the RMA PGM mentality as the utter failure it is. It starts with Eisenhower's amazing warning of the MIC at his farewell speech, goes into 9/11, the neocons, you name it! Spinney has his finest hour explaining how the volunteer force creates compliant sheeple to go do foreign wars for empire building tyrants, how corporations concoct programs and Congress/military just go along with whatever they say is needed....

REVEALS that Eisenhower chickened out at last minute...really wanted to say Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex (MICC) but didn't want to anger some representatives he got along well with etc.

Film also points out we should add Think Tanks (TT) to MICC, as some of these unelected groups like Leo Strauss-inspired PNAC are now exerting immoral influence upon our national course.

Truth #2: The MICC-TT = Military, Industrial, Congressional Complex with Think Tanks has ruined America's Defense

"Why we Fight" is the most important film to come out in decades and should be seen by all Americans. However, at the end it falls flat on solutions to reverse the MICC-TT take-over of national defense.

1. 1913 Perversion of U.S. Constitution robs citizens of control over Senate

Before 1913, if you didn't like what was going on in Wash DC you could take the day off and go to your STATE CAPITAL ands demand action; Senators were appointed by STATE REPRESENTATIVES and went to DC on a CONDITIONAL BASIS. If they misbehaved, we could call them back.

WE THE PEOPLE LOST our country in 1913 to THEM THE ELITES (special interests) and have been dying ever since. If we do not fix this, we are finished.

"the true backers of the Seventeenth Amendment were special interests, which had had great difficultly influencing the system when state legislatures controlled the Senate. (Recall that it had been set up by the Framers precisely to thwart them.) They hoped direct elections would increase their control, since they would let them appeal directly to the electorate, as well as provide their essential political fuel - money."


Now with the alleged "democracy" of directly electing Senators we "float" them out to DC for years at a time and they become little emperors as the States capitals talk about BS local politics like pig farm zoning etc. NATIONAL ISSUES ARE NOT UNDER DAILY SCRUTINY BY ANYONE WHO WILL INTERACT WITH THE CITIZENS. This is how a MICC-TT mess gets built; THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA CANNOT BE INVOLVED WITH THE DAILY DETAILS if they have to stop what they are doing and go to DC which 99% cannot do. THIS IS NOT WHAT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WANTED.

The illegal Federal income tax on paper money the Federal Government had private bankers print for us backed by nothing closed the deal leading to our imprisonment. The first step to get out of this hole we let evil men dig to be our graves is to REPEAL THE 17TH AMENDMENT since its UNCONSTITUTIONAL and 10 states never voted for it.

2. The Volunteer Military Attracts the wrong kind of people to make a quality force that chooses sound equipment

Dr. Norman Dixon in his book; "On the Psychology of Military Incompetence" explains how weak ego people flock to militaries with set routines and offer them chances to order folks around to fill inner voids in their lives. Weak, economic co-dependants are their victims with lesser rank they order around and play "From Here to Eternity" games. Details:


We need to create a professional military force composed of ADULT WARRIORS who call a spade a spade and are there only to get the job done to defend America, not get money for middle class lifestyles or to be an egomaniac narcissist.

If America is to survive into the 21st Century we are going to have to fix these systemic ills.


A former Army officer writes:

"Although I have never believed that the so-called 'military industrial complex' poses any threat, I think this movie looks very interesting. The most insightful comment is the last one by Chalmers Johnson that, 'nowhere is it written that the American Empire continues on forever.'

This President is pursuing policies which if left unchanged will speed the decline of the American empire and bring a quick end to our superpower status leaving the Sino-Russian alliance and its Islamic proxy states to dominate all but North America. This decline is being accelerated not merely by his fiasco in Iraq, which is wasting away an increasing amount of American blood and treasure, but by his efforts to destroy 75% of our nuclear arsenal of which he has already succeeded in destroying 55% since taking office!

In fact, his amnesty bill if implemented will likely lead to civil war within a matter of decades as the Mexicans in the U.S. Southwest attempt to obtain autonomy from our country if not independence to form a Republica del Norte in federation with Mexico."


Small Business


Brave Americans when they leave their period of national service, start up their own small family business BUILDING THINGS that compete successfully against foreign companies and by choice use their profits to pay a FAMILY WAGE for all their employees as soon as possible. This will enable one parent to stay at home to home school their children and prevent them from being corrupted by the current public education social conformity system. Full health care benefits are the next company goal--in the final analysis all we have is each other. If we as Americans do not take care of our fellow citizens their fall into self-destruction spiral is going to bring us all down eventually. If China is beating our price, we tighten our company belts and reduce leader's salaries and/or build a better mousetrap. We never outsource to have things built by foreign country sweat shops. The Brave American chooses to shop at the small family business over the major corporation store whenever possible.

Social Fabric Math


It is my contention that employers must in exchange for the 40-hour work week of an (1) employee provide him enough money to keep him alive, safe (no one terrorizing him by protection payments or criminal activities nearby), dry, rested (at least 8 hours of sleep) and fed (at least 3500 calories a day) in his own place to live with privacy. This should be a conscious decision of basic human decency we as a society should make as how our social fabric is to be. I'll call this individual wage. It's not nearly as decent as the previous family wage that employers used to pay their employees so they could provide for a complete family unit of the previously described parameters with the company of a wife and perhaps 2 children so that man could be a well-adjusted and happy member of society. Very few American employers pay family wage and many refuse to even pay individual wages, and our decaying society is proof positive that its having a destructive effect on America.

If decency is not enough justification, then consider cause-effect utility. If the employee is sinking into debt and despair, he is going to self-destruct; stop working and providing that 39 hours a week of labor. That's correct, employers often deliberately insure that the employee never works 40 hours so they don't have to pay him full benefits. I have worked such 39-hour-a-week jobs where after paying for rent I had no money for food because the rest of my money went to gas and constant repairs of an old car to keep me from going to and from work. I had ZERO disposable income. I was working at a restaurant for a national chain making $BILLIONS that while they refused to share their profits to me so I could even have my own apartment, fortunately I could eat while at work to stay alive. Those who work at jobs where there isn't food for employees are not so blessed.

Now you could say, FIND A BETTER JOB THAT PAYS MORE, to which I ask, what if there are no better paying jobs?

Moreover, why should ANYONE have to suffer a slow death at minimum wage? Why should we allow ANY employers to abuse other human beings in this way? Living with wages that are not enough to keep one alive in a decent manner but a problematic survival subsistence level is a low poverty class. Living decently is "middle class".

Let's not be naive that any rational argument for human decency and pragmatism is going to sway the malevolent, evil assholes who run America. The self-declared Illuminati that run the allegedly "free" world want about 6 billion out of our current 7 billion to die as-soon-as-possible to make the world easier for them to control. Destroying the middle class in America is one of the goals of the Illuminati so there will be no one with any disposable income to fight them anywhere--be it activism or at city hall--much less running for elected office. The Illuminati goal has been making everyone low class and struggling to make ends meet as witnessed by the Rockefeller's backing of the absurd feminist movement in the 1960s in order to get women into the work force to provide employers the excuse to pay everyone less instead of the previous family wage. Having Americans lose their homes and fall into despair so they having nothing to lose and riot is exactly what the Illuminati want by forcing an economic collapse so a lot of people can be gunned down and others placed into concentration FEMA death camps. Perfect cover to go after the moral intelligentsia who oppose the Illuminati's Nazi plans.

First, a Reality Check

If you work 39 hours at $7.25 your raw pay is $282.75 per week. 4 weeks = $1131.

Now deduct 20% for taxes, social security etc.: and you subtract $226.20 so really your take-home pay is $905.

Now how far are you going to go with $905 a month? You should already know the answer to this question, but let's make it painfully obvious so no one can duck the truth.


The first requirement for human beings to survive on the still very deadly Planet Earth's terrain and weather is shelter. Now you could live homeless and live in a tent but each day you go to work you have to shower, shave and be dressed in clean clothes in order to fit in with American society. Maybe you stop in at the YMCA on the way to work and on the way back? What if there is no YMCA?

So you need a place to stay. Let's be as upbeat as we can. We will say that you rent a 1 room apartment for $400 a month. This leaves you with $505.


You have to get to and from work or no money flows and nothing follows. If you have a car over 10 years old even though you own it, you might be paying for huge repair bills like a new transmission for $700 at a shot. So to avoid this, say you are buying a new economy car and making a monthly car payment of $200. This leaves you now with $305.


This car will not be purchased on bank credit unless its fully covered by insurance in case of a crash so they get all their money back. Subtract $100 a month for full coverage car insurance. You now have $205.

Now if you don't see right away that $205 is not enough money to live on after you have paid rent and car expenses, you must have blinders on.


We have to fuel the car. Say you have to travel 15 minutes from your apartment to work and back for a total of 30 miles each day. If your economy car gets 30 miles to a gallon, that's 1 gallon of fuel @$3 a day for 5 days = $15 a week. 4 weeks = $60 a month. You now have $145.


A loaf of bread at Wal-Mart is $1. Cheese is $2 for a pack of 25 slices. Balogny $3 for 20 slices. A gallon of milk is $4. A 5 pound bag of rice is $5. A bag of noodles $2. A box of cereal $3. So if you live on dry cereal/milk for breakfast, sandwhiches for lunch and rice/macaroni for dinner at $20/week for 4 weeks = $80. You now have $65.


If you have to pay for your water/trash that is dependent upon how much water you use plus a flat rate fee for trash pick-up, say $35. You now have $30.


To make that apartment dry you need electrical or gas heat. To have lighting in the evening you need to power light bulbs or else use candles--which incur their own costs. If you live alone and come straight home after work, and either watch TV to be mind-controlled or turn a light on to read a book, your heating/lighting bill each month could be as low as $50 each month. You now have $(-) 20. You have no money.


You cannot afford a telephone. If you did, you'd be down another $30 a month. $(-)50.


Assuming you already owned a computer, you cannot afford internet service. If you did, you'd be in the hole another $30 for a running total of $(-) 80 in the red.

Remember, this is the goal of the Illuminati--for you to be isolated and unable to reach out to anyone around you as you live your life in quiet despair/desperation and slowly die.

Health Care

The minute you fall ill, your marginal, subsistence level life collapses. A few weeks of missed work and you are evicted from your apartment. Then you are sleeping in your car. When it's repossessed by the bank because you failed to make a few payments, you are living on the street--unless you have kind friends who will let you stay with them until you get on your feet. If somehow you recover your health, if you stroll in to work stinky and dirty, you will be fired. Now try to get a new job without clean clothes and appearance because you have no place to live.

If your health completely fails from a serious illness like from eating the junk food you could afford, say a cancer, you will simply die--which is exactly what the Illuminati want.


Now you might say at the point that you fall ill or lose your job you can go to welfare and the government will keep you together somehow as a safety net. There are sure a lot of people filling up homeless shelters these days. It doesn't seem that welfare helps you unless you are black or some minority the Illuminati wants to keep around as a class of violence-prone malcontents to justify their increasingly Nazi-like police state.

A Solution: Decent, Living Individual Wages for Every Worker

It is my contention that every corporation and employer should pay every worker $10/hour and have them work 40 hours each week to insure they live a decent life as a matter of human decency that we as Americans stand for. If we don't stand for this, we are shit. We are not a great country and we should stop pretending that we are. Great people and great countries act like decent people--not assholes. Here is my social fabric math: <

40 hours @ $10/hour = $400. 4 weeks x $400 = $1600.

Subtract 20% taxes etc. = (-) 320 = $1280

Rent (-) $400 = $880

Transportation (-)$200 = $680

Insurance (-)$100 = $580

Fuel (-)$60 = $520

Food (-)$80 = $440

Water/Trash (-) $35 = $405

Electricity/Gas (-)$50 = $355

Telephone (-)$30 = $325

Internet (-)$30 = $295 Remaining

Health Care (-)?

IMHO, everyone should serve at least 2 years of national military service and get veteran's health care for the rest of their lives. Giving up 2 years of your estimated 70 years of life for the good of the nation-state is a fair exchange.

To obtain a driver's license, one must pass a drug test. Drug use must not be allowed as it would break the budgetary bank of someone on a tight less-than-$10/hour salary.

Summary: $10/hour for Everyone is NOT Too Much To Ask

$10/hour would provide a roughly $300 safety cushion for people to either save some money or to buy better food for a more healthy lifestyle.

Some may say the additional $2.25 cost per hour per person would result in employers being unable to have as many employees. This is lying bullshit. It would take 3 and 1/3 x employees getting the $2.25 pay boost just to pay for 1 x $7.25 minimum wage person from scratch. So here are your choices:

4 x employees miserable struggling to get by @$7.25/hour who are:

going to be late for work, not-give-a-damn-because-the-employer-doesn't-give-a-damn-about-them, not put out their 100% effort because they are frustrated, who are going to die from drug overdoses and car crashes because their life sucks and they cannot afford safe cars that require car maintenance/repairs

3 x employees who are happy and secure @$10/hour who are:

going to be on time because their job respects them as human beings and is not exploiting them, will work the extra 100% to compensate for not having the 4th person if everyone was being paid shit, who are going to eat healthy because they can afford it, and not die in car crashes because they can afford an oil change. In a zero sum game, I don't think that 3 people working harder cannot compensate for a 4th person working weakly as in the 4-people-getting-paid-shit-wages scenario.

Zero Sum for Costs

Indecent: 4 people @$7.25 for 39 hours = $1131 a week

Decent: 3 people @$10 for 40 hours = $1200 a week


Differential = $69 = ie; essentially the same

If an employer can't cough up a mere $69 to pay 3 people decently then he is a piece-of-fucking-shit as a human being--and an American.

In fact, let's say for some BS reason the employer apologist insists he must have that 4th person's labor. Ok, we will play with their BS and prove it wrong. Take that mythical 4th person's 40 hours and divide them equally over the 3 people getting individual living wage: 13 hours of time-and-a-half over-time for each one. This would mean $10.00 plus a half of $5 for a total of $15/hour for each of the 3. That's $195 for 3 people or $585 total. The cost of a 4th person working 40 hours at $7.25 is $290. $585 - $290 = is just $295.

Must have Same Man-Hours

Indecent: 4 people @$7.25 for 39 hours = $1131 a week

4 x 39 hours = 156 man-hours of labor

Decent: 3 people @$10 for 40 hours = $1200 a week

Plus Time + Half @$15 for 13 hours = $ 585 a week



Differential = $654 = 2 x employees @$7.25 slave wages

3 people paid decently can do the work of 4 paid like slaves at the cost of 6 slaves.

Or here is where it gets interesting....

4 people paid decently @$10 who do not exceed 40 hours = $1600 a week are actually less costly than paying 3 people @$10 + $15 overtime. In other words, if you must have 4 people's 40-hour a week labor, then hire a 4th person at $10/hour.

The bottom line here is that if you treat people like shit to skimp a mere $2.25 per hour, all you can hope to pick up is a 4th person's mediocre labor for every 3 people you screw-over--who then will also offer lackluster performance. 3 people who are paid with respect can be expected to work with respect and stay with the company that has first shown them some loyalty and decency. The Golden Rule? Remember this? The monies saved not having to constantly retrain people who are replaced in constant turn-over would also pay for the $10/hour decent wage rate.

Conclusion: To Hell with the Illuminati

That's right--to hell with these assholes and their little secret society orgies. Let's start living like men--and not their door mats. This is our country, not theirs. We can begin by demanding a standard of social fabric decency of a living individual wage of $10/hour. The corporations can cut into their bloated executive salaries to pay for the $2.75 wage increase from $7.25 to $10.00/hour. Not a big fucking deal to corporate profits that are created by the employees. Yes, the founders of a company create the golden goose that lays the golden eggs. Does this mean they deserve to be paid like kings and the people generating the wealth with their toil treated like shit because they were not gifted to be creative or be selfishly ambitious and ruthless? Sure, founders should be paid more in a decent proportion to their employees BUT NOT AT THE COST OF THEM BEING TREATED INDECENTLY. The minimum, non-negotiable standard must be that no human being working for the company gets treated like shit, period, EVER! Living wages for all employees FIRST as a non-negotiable. Anything afterwards can be considered for executive compensation.




The Brave American pedal bikes to work to get his physical conditioning and not pollute the planet with fossil fuel emissions. If the distances are too great he restricts his commutes to just 5 days a week. The current gasoline-powered car is unsafe and should be replaced by diesel engines that burn lower volatility fuel and can by their compression type of operation use fuels like cooking grease and bio-diesel to eliminate our need for fossil fuels from hostile, foreign countries that result in our corrupt politicians sending our military Soldiers into unjust wars to take.

Technology > Diesel - Biodiesel - Overview

An Aerospace engineer writes:

"There is an Oklahoma businessman visiting Brazil and other SA countries to find out how they are producing biodiesel from soybeans at the price they sell it. Apparently it is a growing effort to replace the ethanol which has a 1/3 lower heat of combustion then gasoline (because an alcohol is a partially oxidized hydrocarbon) rather than a greater heat of combustion."


The 40, 000 Americans dying each year in car/truck accidents must be stopped. The Brave American wants tractor/trailer trucks to stop driving inefficiently and unsafely across the country's vast distances and instead to be moved by a national 300 mph mag-lev train system that drops them off at major city hubs to drive then only intra-state distances.



The 300 mph high speed train system would decongest our skies above from unsafe tube and wing passenger airliner planes.


These should be replaced with slower take-off and landing speed Burnelli designs that are safer and crash-worthy.


Short take-off and landing Burnelli jet airliners can take-off straight from small city airports and fly at 500 mph speeds straight to their locations, eliminating the commuter plane having to feed passengers to major airports where there are longer runways for large tube & wing airliners. All small private planes and helicopters have recovery parachutes to prevent the majority of fatal accidents that befall them when pilot, engines and airframes fail.




The Brave American refuses to buy gas hog SUVs and does not operate his economy (hybrid electric-diesel ideal) car at least for 2 days a week. On the road, he stays away from unsafe tractor/trailer trucks. Brave Americans car pool and plan trips so stops are made along the way to effect shorter trips. Brave Americans want a national curfew on all fossil fuel car use on every Monday to drastically reduce CO2 emissions NOW before global warming turns America's shores into a giant Katrina-style disaster zone.


When the Brave American gets a sizable savings he does not go on vacation, he buys solar, wind and pedal generators to power a bank of 12v deep cycle batteries to create a Zero Energy home.


When he washes clothes in a machine he does not afterwards use a dryer, he hangs them on a hanger and drip dries them which also eliminates any wrinkles and the electrical use of an iron.




Americans must consciously chose to buy durable, reusable goods. If the current corrupt corporations will not make durable goods like cars that do not break down by planned obsolescence design weakness then a small family owned company needs to step up to the plate and offer a safe, durable hybrid-electric economy car that will last. Packaging of materials must be recyclable to reduce the waste and trash generated by Americans. For example, a jar of mayonnaise should come with a handle so after its emptied it becomes a drink cup. Instead of using cameras which use film and chemical developing, use digital cameras that take photos electronically. There does not have to be "winners and losers"; those making inefficient and unsafe means need to CHANGE and provide the better items.




50% of the air pollution Americans create that's warming the entire planet with disastrous effects is caused by our cars/trucks, 25% our homes and 25% our factories. We can cut out 1/7th of the 50% from cars/trucks by having a fossil fuel vehicle curfew every Monday. 25% of the pollution caused by our homes can be solved by everyone going to zero energy self-sufficiency means. Inner-city and inter-city trains powered by wind and solar electricity can further reduce the car/truck pollution problem far better than waiting for the perfectly clean car to be developed and replace the millions of current dirty gasoline cars in use.  




The Brave American dreams big ideas and lives them; he does not sit and wait to die just because the world we live in cannot be perfected. Jesus (God when he visited us here himself) was a carpenter. Technology is what God wants us to do not sing songs and wait to die. The 300 mph train system would enable all Americans to inexpensively travel throughout the country on foot with just a backpack as can now be done in Europe to gain an appreciation for culture and a sense of who we are. Another option would be to park your economy car on the 300 mph train and then at your destination drive it short distances. Some will criticize the Brave American social movement for slowing down consumerism but this conscious choice to reduce pollution and conserve resources into a better use of our energies like 300 mph trains will INCREASE economic activity except it will be in an earth and human character friendly way.


Brave American efficiency and innovation would free up the resources and be wise to put a genius like Burt Rutan in charge of our space program to clean up all the orbital debris from disposable booster rockets circling overhead as well as get a safer and economical means to go into space and back.  


Government Reform


The Brave American realizes that our founding fathers wanted the people to be involved in ALL aspects of national life by having local State legislatures temporarily elect their 2 Senators sent to Washington D.C. In this way, national issues can be debated at the state capital building with the direct participation of the people. The current direct election of Senators every 6 years "floats" them to D.C. where they have been captured and corrupted by special interest groups and the amendment of 1913 setting this in place must be reversed.   Immigration

The following picture is from a protest rally in London, England and shows the weak egos of some Islamics who need to be surrounded by others in a sub-national group. These folks seem more skilled at staging protest rallies than creating jobs and constructive activities for themselves. If they thought they were right with God, they'd shut the fuck up and be content that they are going to heaven and get 29 virgins etc. The inconsistent script of their religion doesn't only teach personal quiet example, but that everyone in Islam must unite under a one-world government dictator and at threat of death become Muslim or be an underling. What bothers their weak egos is that most of the world doesn't buy into their death cult BS and seem pretty happy, too. Its not jealousy its ENVY. They see what we have and want to destroy us for it.

Notice all the self-sufficient, Bruce Wayne individuals coming together! (of course, they don't need to come together, the group doesn't exert any peer pressure to make them do anything like we know happens with suicide bombers etc.).

So are these folks the 1% minority of trouble-makers that need to be kill/captured?

Well? Are they are?

OK, let's say they are not the 1% but the mythical 99% Islamics some say just want to live in peace in the west but perhaps are just pissed off?

READ WHAT THEIR SIGNS SAY. Look at their tolerance in action!

For more pictures from the same "PEACE-LOVING", "TOLERANT" Muslim event:


We believe in free speech. However, the signs above are not free speech they are CRIMINAL, VERBAL ASSAULT advocating people to commit murder. If you go into a crowded theater and yell "FIRE!" when there is none, an act that could cause people to die in a panic---its a criminal act that can get you punished.

Likewise, free speech advocating MURDER over mere insults over religion is exactly the kind of crying "FIRE!" in a public gathering that should not be tolerated. ALL of those people in that gathering---A SUB-NATIONAL GROUP....should be arrested, tried and if found guilty deported from England as disqualified to be citizens in that country or any western country. Violent religious intolerance cannot be tolerated. If they said on their signs, "Hating Islam Makes you Scum" that would be intolerance but not necessarily violent intolerance and would be allowable. But saying to "BEHEAD" or that "9/11" attacks are justified etc. are grounds to have you kicked out of the nation-state.

Absolute freedom of speech is ANARCHY...that's being able to yell "FIRE!" in a public gathering which is clearly wrong. Some Libertarians might say letting people blow off anger is a good thing and we should tolerate even violence talk. If Japan attacked us and FDR did nothing I'm sure protesters would have marched. I'm sure some of their signs had said "Invade Japan!". However, that's OK because its saying we should take REASONED violent action in self-defense from an actual attack. From the tower of Babel, God instituted nation-states to keep a handle on the passions of men from creating a one-world government where everyone is mixed in together at the expense of truth. VIVA LA DIFFERENCE! And the power of difference is that those that cannot mix SHOULD LIVE SEPARATE AND APART from each other. When these folks are living together CONFLICT is sure to follow. "Insulting" Islam is not grounds for war and since the teachings of Islam say it is, disqualifies this religion as allowable in western societies. Common sense tells you that if you have no loyalty to the nation-state you live in, GET OUT and live somewhere where you can be a wonderful Muslim all you want. This is the best way to keep your alternative point of view on the world "radar screen".

In a recent poll in Great Britain 50% of the Muslims did not think of themselves as British citizens but "Muslims living in Britian". 25% thought they were British citizens but their guidance came from the Mosque not #10 Downing Street or Parliament.

Both of these categories of belief are intolerable, don't you think they should be expelled from England? If they are to live in the nation-state they have to live by the rules of society, if they refuse they should be expelled from society.

VIOLENT INTOLERANCE of a religious view is within a nation-state an act of SUB-NATIONAL WAR (would it make you feel better Scott, if we call it INDIVIDUAL-SUB-NATIONAL WAR?), INSURRECTION, UNJUSTIFIED REBELLION. You pick the negative term.

If it means that its time for the American experiment to face the fact that all beliefs CANNOT mix peaceably in defacto anarchy, then its time to grow up and admit individual freedom is not a panacea and doesn't work with Islam.


The Great Falling Away: How Churchianity Embraces the Anti-Christ

"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because most people don't want to admit they don't have the courage to do anything about it. Most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all"

-- Michael Rivero

Flash back to late 1980...

America was on the ropes; a nation that couldn't do anything right, with selfish people who were hell-bent on eating, drinking and being merry as around the world our hostages were held by Iranian rebels and we were unable to do anything about it. The Soviet communists had taken over Afghanistan that we know now was our baited trap, but our assistance to the rebels wasn't working against the formidable Russian military.

I was in high school at the time and was a new-born Christian attending a fundamentalist church that was snobby and critical of everything especially the "liberals" who had sold America out to a one-way, trip to hell. President Ronald Reagen had just become president and was restoring the nation's confidence that it could actually do something. After high school, I joined the marines and was in boot camp when Egyptian President Sadat was assassinated and Libyan MIGs were shot down by Navy F-14 aircrews. America was beginning to get its confidence back.

After infantry training, I began attending a hyper-fundamentalist college and Reagen sent the Airborne into Grenada to stop a communist take-over there with the marines following up as clean-up. We didn't do squat, my marine reserve unit wasn't called up and the next day an entire marine battalion headquarters was blown up by a mere single suicide driver in a truck bomb. Reagen didn't do anything to avenge the Beirut massacre and this was very troubling to the fundamentalist churchfolk. He wasn't conservative enough. Who we know now was the Leo Strauss disciple "neo-cons" were not running the Presidency and had to limit themselves to small, behind-the-scenes actions to prop up false democracies around the world with rich rulers taking orders from Washington. Invading Moslem countries was not in the playbook then. Iran-Contra money diversion to rebels in Nicaragua is one example of what Reagen would tolerate. But the U.S. defense budget did get to grow by huge leaps and bounds and the neo-cons became very rich men in a prepare-for-war, doomsday racket.

Meanwhile, I had graduated from Bible college and was on active duty in the USMC as an officer when again the U.S. Army Airborne was sent in to take-down Panamanian dictator Noriega who was defying the cabal in Washington with his drug running profiteering. It was no surprise that again it was the Army Airborne that held the line-in-the-sand to deter Iraq's Saddam Hussein from invading Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Army in mechanized tracks expelled his forces from Kuwait. The USMC as a WW2 re-enactment club of foot-sloggers from wheeled trucks simply was not then and is not now up to the task of either small, sub-national conflicts or large nation-state wars because its filled with pride, arrogance and hubris embedded in a bureaucracy instead of a profession of adults with consciences who admit to problems and solve them. Instead of changing, the liberals were blamed; had marines been more marine-like the guard's tiny M16 5.56mm bullets would have somehow became cannon shells and exploded the truck bomb in Beirut, had the corps been "more highly trained" somehow their bodies sitting on their asses at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina would have grown turbofan engines and taken flight to Panama; had marines been "more tough", they could have swam through and exploded the sea mines blocking the 4th MEB from landing on Kuwaiti beaches. The USMC populated mostly by white southern red-necks was just parroting the excuses they make for losing the American civil war in 1865; that their "drinking, cussing and smoking had made God mad at them" and not the Union's superior operational art that blockaded them from outside armaments, denied them the Mississippi river and Sherman's flying columns destroying their logistical means to fight. Like the fundy Christian churches, the rank & file of the USMC want a canned formula to follow without having to be ACTIVELY INVOLVED THINKING and living by conscience; they believe the WW2 marine-corps way of ad hocery by mindless individuals who struggle for self and peer validation in a blind-obedience outfit and no preparation beforehand by doctrine, operational art, tactics and tangible equipment to stack-the-deck in our favor beforehand was necessary. If things went wrong it WAS YOU--THE INDIVIDUAL'S FAULT not the Church or the USMC.

Satanist Clinton should be Resisted because he is a Satanist traitor--not because he's with the OTHER POLITICAL PARTY: evil should be opposed on PRINCIPLE not on us vs. them

The Clinton years only added to the hate-liberal, scape-goating of the fundy Churchians and snobby marines. By having convenient scapegoats to demonize, there was no internal constructive criticism of the systemic practices taking place and the Church like the USMC did not grow in virtue for that day when they'd "have their day-in-court" so to speak: the day when they'd be running the show. There was no Francis Schaeffer due diligence of what tangible things that would be done to reform once in charge, just get rid of the liberals and all would be well.

In American bi-polar politics, A must be opposed by non-A called B, and to defeat Clintonista perpetuation through former Vice President Al Gore, a stark contrast was offered in the form of anti-liberal, allegedly "Christian" George W. Bush, son of the former Reagen VP and one-term President George Herbert Bush. Though he didn't get the popular vote we prayed God would nudge the balance in the Supreme Court to him to finally for once--the long-suppressed Christian folk would have their REAL CONSERVATIVE President. Bush appeared to be kind of stupid but with a nice guy persona who we hoped would grow in the job by surely the influx of truthful information reaching him. Meanwhile in the allegedly Christian right, the knives came out and liberals were massacred left and right in the public arena with shows like O'Reilly's "Factor" and Limbaugh's radio rants. America would finally get its act together with real conservatives.

Evil Vice President Dick Cheney is the actual President of the United States; pussy George Bush was too scared to even appear before the 9/11 whitewash commission without Dick

Former CENTCOM commander, General Tommy Franks $$$ cashed-in big-time thanks to the "war on terra"; notice his illegal "salute"; where are the AR 670-1 1SG/SGM outward appearance nazis when you need them?

The horrors began right away when it soon became apparent that Bush was not getting true information but had surrounded himself with neo-con yes-men bent on creating wars-for-profits. There would be no reform of DoD to get rid of outlandish farces like the USMC foot sloggers and the RMA precision firepower bombardment mentality followed by troops in trucks to do Clinton-era peacenik nation-building in favor of efficient military excellent means through tracked mechanization combining of arms. Bush and company while having a patriotic correctness outward falsade were the neo-cons of old who were content to feed the populace baloney about how great the nation America was while lining their pockets and favored contractors with money. The military, industrial, congressional, think-tank (MICC-TT) complex went into over-drive but the boogie-man threat wasn't there like the Soviet Union of old. The neo-cons knew during their out-of-power years that a "new Pearl Harbor" was needed to scare Americans into giving them a free hand to do super-power bullying around the world.

So these criminal elements within the U.S. government staged the false flag terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 blaming 19 Saudi Islamic suicidists for diving airliners into buildings even though 6 turned up alive and there was no evidence linking CIA-directed mastermind Osama Bin Laden to the attacks; the fundy Churchians now had a new demon to hate replacing the Soviet communists; Islamists--and the "flagheads" were perfectly comfortable with whatever immoral brutal schemes the neo-cons conjured up to kill "ragheads". All the years of pent-up anger and frustration at the liberals and Islamists like those who dared spit on their tin-god of nation-state America were now going to get their revenge. It was if these hate-mongers were set-up to lash-out on cue when the pendulum swung their way.....because they have no internal moral integrity to act on principles, all they wanted was for their cultural faction to get into power. All those years grinding their axes, the Churchians had refused to accept that it was the American CIA deposing Iran's elected leader in favor of puppet the Shah who secret police brutalized the Iranians that lead to the anti-Shah "blowback" that put the Islamists into power. There is no constructive self-criticism in the fundy Churches because THEY HAVE NO CONSCIENCE. And this is what is so dangerous and must be addressed right now.

"...For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple."

--Romans 16:18

I had always known something was just not right in all the fundy Christian churches I attended over the years. If you didn't wear a tie they immediately assumed you were "unsaved" for example. Every Sunday, there'd be Fanny Crosby songs and altar calls for folks to get saved, yet we were all supposed to already be saved by the one time act of God taking human form and dying in our place on the cross 2008 +/- years ago. I know now that these churches operate a SALVATION RACKET--the more folks you bring in on Sunday and Wednesday nights, the more MONEY $ that goes into the offering plates and full-time Church workers. The suspicion that most churches are just rackets for folks to get a living from a social service (make people feel they are safe in a bureaucratic institution where they don't have to stand on their own two feet and make moral judgments, just follow the formula!) is true because if they preached the Bible at face value, they'd not be building extensive buildings and empires. Most people don't even know that the CHURCH IS THE PEOPLE--not the BUILDING. Churchbuilding-ianity is a place where OBJECTIVE THINKING is not encouraged only subjective beating one's self up for "not measuring up" as a Christian--exactly the same introversion in the USMC for never being "marine enough". At no point do you say, "I'm a Christian, let's get on with our mission".

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

--2 Timothy 1:7

If you constantly think you are not saved or worthy enough you are living in FEAR. If you constantly HATE everyone and everything you don't have love. If you cannot be OBJECTIVE about things you lack a SOUND MIND.

Military Snobbery 101: Who Packs YOUR Parachute?


The power points, Who Packs Your Parachute??? demonstrates the right attitude we should have towards the TEAM mates and their tasks needed to achieve a function.


WHY did it take a glamorous part of the team having a near-death experience for him to value the less glamorous, team-mate and his function?


A profession is a place where EVERYONE acts according to their CONSCIENCE and NEVER tells the boss what he wants to hear if its a lie. What matters in ANY given situation is the FACTS not the rank, badges or social class of the person.

"Pride" is not based on WHAT THE ORGANIZATION is doing. If the organization is moral, then all is well. If the outfit is evil, then your actions support evil. There is no INTERNAL moral compass in this.

Eliminate the Sergeant Major Axis-of-Assholes

"I never saw a SGM that was worth a shit. I take it you haven't either."

-- Vietnam combat vet

So if we really think who packs parachutes are important we'd do more than just say "Hi!" we'd functionally change the U.S. military into a PROFESSION where ALL tasks and task-doers are valued so there isn't any snobbery in the first place.

And what we're saying is this; EVERYONE in the enlisted ranks as they climb in rank can and are expected to become officers and could become the top officer in the service. No more of this senior enlistedmen with no place to go walking around and being non-tactical, assholes like CSM Pendry below. Sergeant Majors are incompetent, non-tactical, assholes without any moral compass or moral conscience we do not need, this rant by fucktard Pendry who tries to blame liberals for 8 years of republican Bush evil fuck-ups is proof that that rank and idiots like him should be eliminated from being created in the first place. J.D. Pendry is a retired U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major (AKA: incompetent outward-appearance asshole) who writes for Random House. He seldom beats around the bush--he just makes excuses for the Bush!

A Command Sergeant Major's (Fascist) Perspective, or "The Axis of Idiots"

Jimmy Carter, you're the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home, and then lacked the spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people hostage. You're the runner-in-chief.

Bill Clinton, you played ring around the Lewinsky while the terrorists were at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia and then you ran from it. Your weak-willed responses to the USS Cole and the First Trade Center Bombing and Our Embassy Bombings emboldened the killers. Each time you failed to respond adequately, they grew bolder, until 9/11.

John Kerry, dishonesty is your most prominent attribute. You lied about American Soldiers in Vietnam. Your military service, like your life, is more fiction than fact.

You've accused our Soldiers of terrorizing women and children in Iraq. You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time, the same words you used to describe Vietnam. You're a fake. You want to run from Iraq and abandon the Iraqis' to murderers just as you did the Vietnamese. Iraq, like Vietnam, is another war that you were for, before you were against it.

John Murtha, you said our military was broken. You said we can't win militarily in Iraq

You accused United States marines of cold-blooded murder without proof. And said we should re-deploy to Okinawa. Okinawa, John? And the Democrats call you their military expert!

Are you sure you didn't suffer a traumatic brain injury while you were off building your war hero resume? You're a sad, pitiable, corrupt and washed up politician. You're not a marine, sir. You wouldn't amount to a good pimple on a real marine's ass.

You're a phony and a disgrace. Dick Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanamo of being Nazis, tenders of Soviet style gulags and as bad as the regime of Pol Pot, who murdered two million of his own people after your party abandoned Southeast Asia to the Communists. Now you want to abandon the Iraqis to the same fate. History was not a good teacher for you, was it? Lord help us! See Dick run.

Ted Kennedy, for days on end you held poster-sized pictures from Abu Grhaib in front of any available television camera. Al Jazeera quoted you saying that Iraqi's torture chambers were open under new management. Did you see the news, Teddy? The Islamic Nazis demonstrate real torture for you again. If you truly supported our troops, you'd show the world poster-sized pictures of that atrocity and demand the annihilation of it.

Your legislation stripping support from the South Vietnamese led to a communist victory there. You're a bloated, drunken fool bent on repeating the same historical blunder that turned freedom-seeking people over to homicidal, genocidal maniacs.

To paraphrase John Murtha, all while sitting on your wide, gin-soaked rear-end in Washington. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ Feingold, Hillary Clinton, Pat Leahy, Chuck Schumer, et al ad nauseam: Every time you stand in front of television cameras and broadcast to the Islamic Nazis that we went to war because our President lied, that the war is wrong and our Soldiers are torturers, that we should leave Iraq, you give the Islamic butchers - the same ones that tortured and mutilated American Soldiers - cause to think that we'll run away again, and all they have to do is hang on a little longer.

American news media, the New York Times particularly: Each time you publish stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence gathering methods, you become one United with the sub-human pieces of camel dung that torture and mutilate the bodies of American Soldiers. You can't strike up the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy my country. Actually, you are more dangerous to us than Al Qaeda is. Think about that each time you face Mecca to admire your Pulitzer.

You are America's 'AXIS OF IDIOTS'. Your Collective Stupidity will destroy us. Self-serving politics and terrorist-abetting news scoops are more important to you than our national security or the lives of innocent civilians and Soldiers. It bothers you that defending ourselves gets in the way of your elitist sport of politics and your ignorant editorializing. There is as much blood on your hands as is on the hands of murdering terrorists. Don't ever doubt that. Your frolics will only serve to extend this war as they extended Vietnam. If you want our Soldiers home, as you claim, knock off the crap and try supporting your country ahead of supporting your silly political aims and aiding our enemies.

Iraq is an un-necessary occupation for corporations to make money off U.S. taxpayers with a false security racket and to get oil companies access to cheap oil they can sell at high prices due to the "security situation in Iraq".

No liberal made Bush & Company refuse to rehire the Iraqi Army and government workers back as we promised them; ask LTG Garner. No liberal makes the Army and marines drive around in wheeled trucks asking rebels to detonate land mines on roads they cannot avoid because of their incompetence to use tracked tanks capable of going cross-country. So-called "conservatives" keep on buying the Clintonista peacenik Stryker and Humvee trucks to line their pockets and fill American body bags...

The U.S. military needs to rid itself of incompetent Tory Fascist fucktards like Pendry who are unable to THINK critically about what we are doing whether its morally or tactically sound; he's too eager to kill ragheads using our lower-ranking young people as cannon-fodder.

If you stay in you damn well better grow in your professional knowledge as a warfighter and you will open your blue-collar, narrow-minded zero sum thinking ways and become an officer or you will leave. Its high time we stop subsidizing tyrants in the ranks.


Ditto that with the USMC; at no point do you accept where you and the organization is objectively and start meeting the challenges around us head-on by ADAPTATION. Because this would mean the destruction of the organization as a perfect formula myth; the system--the non-thinking people could be lemmings to and not have to have active consciences to be morally accountable for; it was all a kind of MORAL AUTO-PILOT. And its not just the fundy churches and robotic marines that want to believe lies that their organizations are "it"--its now a national delusion held by at least half of Americans that America's shit doesn't stink. Its called FASCISM. In the military, its called MILITARISM. For an industrial economy its called CORPORATISM.

Americans don't want to think. They want a canned formula to follow guaranteed to work. Then off-the-clock they are free to drink, smoke, snort cocaine, whatever etc. under the safe umbrella of the mother/daddy organization they belong to: be it the church, the corporation or the government sector agency like the military.

Its all based on HATE.

You could call it snobbery and it is, but at its root is HATE. Its all very clear to me now. All the so-called "conservative" organizations I have been a part of are based on HATE; hate for others masquerading hate for one self. I have never felt this way about myself. That's why I'd always look around me and wonder, "Why are they CRYING that we didn't shoot well on the rifle range?" We had young men in TEARS because the drill instructor had scolded us for not being the best shooting platoon at Edson Range (named after a marine WW2 hero who committed suicide). The whole platoon was in tears and self-loathing that "they would not BE MARINES" because the DIs would flunk them out!!! There was ZERO THOUGHT that maybe the EXTERNAL CAUSE-EFFECT REALITY reasons why we were shooting so poorly was:

1. the people supposedly teaching us were assholes yelling and screaming at us

2. we had our knees resting on pavement without knee pads during dry-firing practice

3. this climate of fear without KNOWLEDGE meant the fundamental secret of shooting to squeeze the trigger and let the gun fire unexpectedly while holding sight alignment/sight picture was not understood by all so we were shooting badly not getting center mass target hits

If the whole boot camp experience was to torture us and weed out the "unworthy" why not just spend a week and treat us like actual POWs with torture and get over it? Determine what BS rite of passage existentialist torture crap would once-and-for-all, "EARN" us the title of "marines" and get it over with ONE TIME. That might at least make some sense, but that would mean an organization from then on not in love with itself that could be borged into on automatic pilot. You'd have to STOP HATING then, and be adults and that's not what the hyper fundy Churches or the USMC or the existentialist U.S. military or the Bush America is about. WE WANT TO BLINDLY HATE. Just like the liberals want to blindly LOVE--but in an opposite direction.


The stunning conclusion to all of this is that the hate-filled conservatives finally got their wish to take over America, and then lacking salt power over the many years of hating the liberals and ungodly they have corrupted the entire country with their own patriotic correctness decay. Corporation-run Bush has brought on the disasters of 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq with nuclear strikes against Iran in the offing. The USMC was given a maneuver axis to take to Baghdad but instead they got clobbered in their wheeled trucks by mere Iraqi rearguards with AK47s and RPGs, and only by the miraculous initiative of U.S. Army Colonel Perkins with armored tracks were we even able to reach Baghdad.


You have today people who allegedly delude themselves as being Christians say there's NOTHING wrong or evil about Bush whose 8 years of constant EVIL is clear and undeniable. Its like all those years not being in power have blinded the hyper fundies to such a degree that NOTHING Bush could ever do would make them reject him. Bush goes around showing the devil's horn salute. He lies constantly about everything. He calls the U.S. Constitution who he is supposedly sworn to defend, "a goddamed piece of paper". He has got over 4, 000 of our Soldiers murdered and 60, 000 wounded. Over 650, 000 Iraqis have died so American corporations can get rich off occupying Iraq. Yet NONE of this sets off alarm bells in hyper fundy "Christians". Bush is KILLING RAGHEADS. That's all that matters. Those "fuckers who held Americans hostage in Iran, who blew up our marines, who terrorize our citizens are going to pay". Its to them a "holy" war. Violence is in, sex is sin.

Former Sailor Steve Cook makes some profound points about this:

1. The phony conservatives refuse to attack liberal actions when done by their anti-christ Bush so its really not the actions they are against on principle that violates a moral compass, its strictly US vs. THEM; if its THEIR SCOUNDREL CORRUPT ACTIONS ARE AOK; ie they just resent that they were not in power all these years and now are making up for lost time becoming self-versions of what they hate

2. When you point a finger THREE FINGERS point back at YOU. Very good American folk wisdom!

Good article, Mike, you make a lot of valid points. I know exactly what you mean about the so-called "conservative" (bowel) movement, it is dead in the water. Today's "conservatives" aren't even really conservatives, just as you rightly pointed out that many self-described Christians aren't truly Christians. These are just labels, anyway. The so-called conservatives have no internal criticism or peer review; their only means of dealing with problems is to blame everything on liberals, which is a cop-out and an excuse not to put their own house in order, which is a shambles. That fat douche bag Rush Limbaugh is a perfect example: he lambastes liberals, but hardly ever criticizes Republicans even when they support the same policies as Democrats. It's hypocrisy, and people like him have no credibility with me. There are lots of people like that on both sides.

Don't be shy about pointing out real conspiracies which do exist. Labeling dissenters as "conspiracy theorists" is just another cop-out for weak-minded people who "can't handle the truth" (just like marines). Most people are afraid of the truth, like that quote by Rivero says, because they are afraid to face the problem and take corrective action. So they "shoot the messenger" in order to relieve their own guilty conscience about lacking the moral courage to do what's right. "Patriotic correctness" is the right-wing's equivalent to the left-wing's "political correctness": a means of shaming anyone who dares to point out the shortcomings and inconsistencies of the ruling class. Phony patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels, a cloak to hide behind and conceal their crimes. Wrapping themselves in the flag has always been a favorite tactic of the liars and thieves who hold public office. It's amazing more people can't see through such transparent, self-serving bullshit. Americans are mostly ignorant of history and politics because they like it that way. Ignorance is bliss, and gives people an excuse to do nothing. Just like the three monkeys who hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil. I know a lot of people who fit in this category. They think that Dubya is a great guy, just because he isn't a Democrat.

I agree with you that organized religion is a racket--and tax-free, too. Look at all the frauds who are televangelists. It amazes me that people fall for those faith-healing bullshit artists who live high on the hog from money donated by well-meaning but gullible people. I'm not religious, but having studied various religions due to intellectual curiosity, I have to say that according to what I've read of Christian theology, Jesus' death on the cross saved mankind from damnation, and therefore there's no need to go to church and put your money in the collection plate. I don't even see the necessity for baptism. I also don't understand why some Christians hate the Jews for calling for Jesus' crucifixion: Would they prefer that he hadn't died, in which case they wouldn't be saved from eternal damnation? Their "thinking" is very illogical, to say the least. According to their religion, it all happened according to God's plan, so Jesus died on the cross because God wanted it that way. If I can understand that, why can't they? You're right that the church is the people, not the building, just like America is the people, not the politicians. It is amazing that so many conservative retards don't hold Bush and his cronies accountable for their betrayal of the U.S., but instead want to blame Clinton, even after 8 years of Bush, six of which took place with a majority GOP Congress. I guess they forgot the old saying that when you point the finger of blame at someone else, you have 3 fingers pointing back at yourself. Or if you prefer biblical phrases, "Take the beam out of your own eye before you worry about the splinter in your neighbor's." The problem is, American society is fundamentally materialistic, self-centered, and focused on individual pleasure, instant gratification, and stabbing your neighbor in the back to get ahead. This is deeply ingrained in our national psyche, for better or worse. "The masses" are lazy and ignorant, and I don't see that changing. I see it as a failure of leadership. I don't think the masses of people will ever be more than lemmings. That's just human nature. We need leaders with integrity, instead of the corrupt pieces of shit who are robbing us blind, like Cheney giving his corporate buddies no-bid contracts so they can all get even richer off the backs of the tax-payers.

You're a good guy, Mike. It's a shame that you aren't a general instead of an LT, so that you could really do some good for the Army. But we both know that, with a few rare exceptions, only corrupt shitbirds get to wear stars on their collars. It's the same in every branch of the military. I don't know how you've stayed in uniform all these years without going crazy. The shitty way the Navy treats its Sailors, especially enlisted, drove me nuts and soured me on any thoughts of a military career, even though I thought I would be a lifer when I joined up. My negative experiences with the Navy really dampened my patriotic spirit until I realized that their idea of patriotism was a lot different from mine. Knowing what happened to those sailors on the USS Liberty was a big wake-up call for me. I couldn't believe the Navy and the government betrayed our men like that. What sorry motherfuckers they are.

People who Have Moral Compasses that Don't Point North? Or do they just not have a compass in the first place?

The inescapable conclusion is that many of my friends and associates I have known all these years in churches, military units and my Bible college MUST NOT BE ACTUAL CHRISTIANS, but CHURCHIANS. People with hate using these organizations as psychological crutches so they can live on a "moral autopilot" dictated by some father/mother figure. I conclude this because when you really become a Christian the Holy Spirit begins to instruct your CONSCIENCE not dumbs it down. Your moral clarity increases not decreases. Thus, for someone to be a Christian with the Holy Spirit inside them to not see a damn thing wrong with clear, anti-christ-like evil of President Bush these last 8 years you must conclude they are not saved at all. This should terrify them and I sincerely hope it does so they get an understanding of what Christian faith is and get the pardon that actually energizes their conscience that stands apart from any human bureaucracy that's based on what that person truly thinks is right to think and do = a moral compass. The fruits from Bush are so evil some have concluded he might be THE anti-christ himself; time will tell if he leaves power or stages yet another false flag 9/11 operation before 2008 is over.




The point is REAL Christians have their MINDS ON, their CONSCIENCES are in effect AT ALL TIMES! The whole point of being a Christian is to understand your moral-legal predicament before God and to redress it by accepting God's pardon. In the hate-filled, snobby fundy Churches you are NEVER off-the-hook and empowered to get on with the mission by an adaptive organization. The "great falling away" predicted in the Bible is clearly bitter people angry for not being a part of the mainstream of American life getting even with the liberals and other scapegoats in an orgy of "pay-back". You still have fucktards writing NOW that we are in the mess we are in today because of THE LIBERALS--as if 8 years of Bush evil had nothing to do with it! That's pretty damn sick.

Future Warning

Iran's leader shares same group clubhouse sign as NeroBush, as does the French President and King of Jordan...all one happy Satanic family!

As if this wasn't bad enough, that the conservatives had their way and botched it horribly eager to start WWIII in the middle east; there are now signs that the major tele-evangelists like Pat Robertson have been corrupted with evil ALL ALONG as they have been seen showing devil signs.

Say it Ain't So: Televangelist Pat Robertson with Masonic Lion Paw salute


Kenneth Copeland

Benny Hinn

Amy Grant

What this means is a concerted conspiracy (yeah, I know) by Satan to set us up for the ultimate bait & switch by sending us wolves in sheep's clothing and when its ripe to pull-the-rug out from under us, expose them as his agents. WHHHOOPS! Now Christianity looks very, very foolish and corrupt, discrediting the Christian Gospel message.

What Happened To My Country?

by Steve Osborn

I grew up an American, and proud of it. I was taught in school about the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and Bill of Rights. My brother was a Merchant Marine Officer during the war and had three ships sunk beneath him. We beat the Nazis, the Fascists and the Japanese and made the world safe for democracy. After the war came Nuremberg and the assurance that things like the holocaust could never happen again. The Marshal Plan helped to rebuild the shattered portions of the world. America, Democracy, compassion and help. It was good to be an American. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were sad, but necessary to end the war and save lives, we were told.


We read George Orwell's 1984, which could happen in Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, but we could never have thought police and endless war here in the United States. Then came the Cold War, McCarthy, Korea, and later on Vietnam. My service time crossed those wars, but I thanked my stars I didn't have to fight in them. I was at Bikini for the Hydrogen Bomb tests in 1956, which taught me the unthinkable horror of nuclear war.


Vietnam taught us the danger and folly of going to war on a false pretext. Tonkin Gulf was to be a lesson to us all, as was the intended impeachment of Nixon for violating the law and the Constitution. We wouldn't let that happen again; no president was ever going to spy on his own people again, or persecute people who didn't agree with him or his policies.


Yes, the United States was a nation of great wealth. A nation that took care to see to the freedom and well being of its citizens, and welcomed the downtrodden foreigner to the new land. It was a nation that pioneered the exploration of space and gloried in the advance of science. I was proud to be an American!


My God! What has happened to my nation? My nation that no longer pays more than lip service to its Constitution and Bill of Rights, which have been a beacon to the world for over two centuries. My nation that unilaterally discards treaties that were the hope of a world of peace, guided by law and diplomacy. My nation that will wage a war of aggression against a far off nation that was no threat to it, but that has lots of oil. My nation that gives all of its wealth to the rich and is satisfied to leave its citizens to starve, homeless, unemployed and sickly.


What happened to that Constitution that so wisely divided the government into three separate units, to provide a system of checks and balances against any one branch usurping power? How did we wind up with a President that refers to the Constitution that he swore to protect and defend as "just a goddamned piece of paper," and a Congress that seems willing to rubber stamp any giveaway the President demands? How did we find ourselves with a Supreme Court that will set aside the Constitution in favor of unlimited presidential power for the duration?


Now I live in an America I don't dare leave for fear of being spat upon, shot, bombed or kidnaped. I am looked upon as a citizen of a rogue nation that has no concept or respect for any law except bullying and strength. I need a passport even to visit Canada, which was to be our sister nation with open borders forever. I must expect to be required to show my "papers" at any time, to any official. I must accept that the government can break into my house and rifle my belongings and papers any time it wishes on the thinnest of excuses and it is not even required to let me know it has violated my home and my privacy. I must accept the fact that the government can listen in to my private conversations, my phone, my e-mail, can probably read my snail mail if they wish and can put a gag order on anyone who has information on me so I may not even be made aware that I am being spied upon. George Orwell's absolute dictatorship has crept in to my home and my life and thrown out my beloved Constitution and Bill of Rights. The difference between the United States, Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy is steadily and inexorably diminishing and the people are letting it happen while they remain paralyzed with fear. Fear incited by the gang that runs the White House and their cronies in the propaganda ministry that used to be our last bulwark against tyranny; our once free press.


So now my pride in America is for our past; my sadness for our present; my fear for our future. I am no longer proud to be an American, but I have no place to go.

Why The Direct Election Of Senators May Have Been A Serious Mistake, And One That Helps Explain The Supreme Court's States' Rights Views


Friday, Sep. 13, 2002

Federalism - the allocation and balancing of power between state and federal government - has emerged as a central concern of the Supreme Court under Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Slowly, but steadily, the Rehnquist Court has been cutting back federal powers, and protecting state's rights. Many have wondered what the Court is doing. Why are the Court's five conservatives - the Chief Justice himself, along with Associate Justices Sandra Day O'Connor, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, and Clarence Thomas - creating this new jurisprudence of federalism? The Amendment calls for direct election of U.S. Senators. It's a change that has in fact proved anything but democratic. And it is a change whose aftermath may haunt the Twenty-first Century.

Concerns About Federalism, Especially Post-September 11

Divisions of power are rooted in our Constitution. Experience had taught the Framers the dangers of concentrations of ruling authority, resulting in their ingenious template of checks and balances, with divisions and distributions of power. Ultimate power in a democracy resides with the people. We are not a pure democracy, however, but rather a confederated republic (one that features, as well, county and local political subdivisions). Thus, while there is national sovereignty, there is also state sovereignty. Power has been so divided and spread for one reason: to provide for and protect the highest sovereignty - that of each individual citizen. Only fools reject the wisdom of this founding principle of defusing power. Yet from the outset there has been debate regarding the appropriate allocation and balancing of these powers. The debate has focussed on not only whether a particular matter should be dealt with at the state versus the national level, but also on how these allocations are adjusted from time to time.

Of late, for example, along with laments for those who tragically lost their lives during the September 11th terrorist attack, there has been widespread concern with new realignments of federal/state powers that have followed in the name of homeland security.

Column continues below ? Most significantly, as I discussed in a previous column, Washington is assuming powers that have only previously existed during a Congressionally declared war.

Creating the United States Senate: The Framers' Bicameralism

Unsurprisingly, the Revolutionaries were not very impressed with most aspects of the British model of government. They rejected parliamentary government, with its king or queen and three estates of the realm (lords spiritual, lords temporal, and the commons).

But one feature of the British system, the Framers did borrow. That was bicameralism - a word coined by Brit Jeremy Bentham to describe the division of the legislature into two chambers (or, in Latin, camera). The British Parliament had its House of Lords as the upper chamber and the House of Commons as the lower chamber. Citizens selected members of the House of Commons. The members of the House of Lords, in contrast, were those who had been titled by a king or queen (lords temporal) and the archbishops and bishops of the Church of England (lords spiritual).

Loosely basing our bicameral legislature on this model (minus the lords, both temporal and spiritual), the Framers created the House of Representatives as the lower chamber, whose members would be selected directly by the people. And with almost unanimous agreement, they determined that members of the upper chamber, the Senate, would be selected by not directly, but by the legislatures of the states. Each state would have two Senators, while Representatives would be apportioned based on population. James Madison was not only involved in structuring the system, but was also a keeper of its contemporaneous record. He explained in Federalist No. 10 the reason for bicameralism: "Before taking effect, legislation would have to be ratified by two independent power sources: the people's representatives in the House and the state legislatures' agents in the Senate."

The need for two powers to concur would, in turn, thwart the influence of special interests, and by satisfying two very different constituencies, would assure the enactment was for the greatest public good. Madison summed up the concept nicely in Federalist No 51:

In republican government, the legislative authority, necessarily predominate. The remedy for this inconveniency is, to divide the legislature into different branches; and to render them by different modes of election, and different principles of action, as little connected with each other, as the nature of their common functions and their common dependencies on the society, will admit.

The system as designed by the Framers was in place for a century and a quarter, from 1789 until 1913, when the Seventeenth Amendment was adopted. As originally designed, the Framers' system both protected federalism and ensured that relatively few benefits would be provided to special interests.

The Cloudy Reasons Behind The Seventeenth Amendment

Before the Seventeenth Amendment the federal government remained stable and small. Following the Amendment's adoption it has grown dramatically.

The conventional wisdom is that it was FDR's New Deal that radically increased the size and power of federal government. But scholars make a convincing case that this conventional wisdom is wrong, and that instead, it was the Seventeenth Amendment (along with the Sixteenth Amendment, which created federal income tax and was also adopted in 1913) that was the driving force behind federal expansion. The Amendment took a long time to come. It was not until 1820 that a resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives to amend the Constitution to provide for direct elections of Senators. And not until after the Civil War, in 1870, did calls for altering the system begin in earnest. But forty-three years passed before the change was actually made.

This lengthy passage of time clouds the causes that provoked the Amendment to be proposed and, finally, enacted. Nonetheless, scholars do have a number of theories to explain these developments. George Mason University law professor Todd Zywicki has assembled an excellent analysis of the recent scholarship on the history of the Seventeenth Amendment, while also filling in its gaps. Zywicki finds, however, that received explanations are incomplete.

Two Main Seventeenth Amendment Theories Don't Hold Water On Examination

There have been two principal explanations for changing the Constitution to provide for direct election of Senators. Some see the Amendment as part of the Progressive Movement, which swept the nation in the late 1800s and early 1900s, giving us direct elections, recall, and referendums.

Others, however, believe the Amendment resulted from the problems the prior Constitutional system was creating in state legislatures, who under that system were charged with electing Senators. These problems ranged from charges of bribery to unbreakable deadlocks.

Deadlocks happened from time to time when, because of party imbalance, a legislature was unable to muster a majority (as necessary under the 1866 law that controlled) in favor any person. The result was to leave the Senate seat empty and leave the state represented by only a single Senator, not the Constitutionally-mandated two.

What about the "corruption and deadlock" explanation? Zywicki's analysis shows that, in fact, the corruption was nominal, and infrequent. In addition, he points out that the deadlock problem could have been easily solved by legislation that would have required only a plurality to elect a Senator - a far easier remedy than the burdensome process of amending the Constitution that led to the Seventeenth Amendment. Fortuntely, Professor Zywicki offers an explanation for the Amendment's enactment that makes much more sense. He contends that the true backers of the Seventeenth Amendment were special interests, which had had great difficultly influencing the system when state legislatures controlled the Senate. (Recall that it had been set up by the Framers precisely to thwart them.) They hoped direct elections would increase their control, since they would let them appeal directly to the electorate, as well as provide their essential political fuel - money.

This explanation troubles many. However, as Zywicki observes, "[a]thought some might find this reality 'distasteful,' that does not make it any less accurate."

Should The Seventeenth Amendment Be Repealed?

Those unhappy with the Supreme Court's recent activism regarding federalism should considering joining those who believe the Seventeenth Amendment should be repealed. Rather than railing at life-tenured Justices who are inevitably going to chart their own courses, critics should focus instead on something they can affect, however difficult a repeal might be.

Repeal of the amendment would restore both federalism and bicameralism. It would also have a dramatic and positive effect on campaign spending. Senate races are currently among the most expensive. But if state legislatures were the focus of campaigns, more candidates might get more access with less money - decidedly a good thing.

Returning selection of Senators to state legislatures might be a cause that could attract both modern progressive and conservatives. For conservatives, obviously, it would be a return to the system envisioned by the Framers. For progressives - who now must appreciate that direct elections have only enhanced the ability of special interests to influence the process - returning to the diffusion of power inherent in federalism and bicameralism may seem an attractive alternative, or complement, to campaign finance reform. Profession Zywicki likes this idea as well, but is probably right in finding repeal unlikely. He comments - and I believe he's got it right -- "Absent a change of heart in the American populace and a better understanding of the beneficial role played by limitations on direct democracy, it is difficult to imagine a movement to repeal the Seventeenth Amendment."

A Liberal's Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives ...by Michael Moore

To My Conservative Brothers and Sisters,

I know you are dismayed and disheartened at the results of last week's election. You're worried that the country is heading toward a very bad place you don't want it to go. Your 12-year Republican Revolution has ended with so much yet to do, so many promises left unfulfilled. You are in a funk, and I understand.

Well, cheer up, my friends! Do not despair. I have good news for you. I, and the millions of others who are now in charge with our Democratic Congress, have a pledge we would like to make to you, a list of promises that we offer you because we value you as our fellow Americans. You deserve to know what we plan to do with our newfound power -- and, to be specific, what we will do to you and for you.

Thus, here is our Liberal's Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives:

Dear Conservatives and Republicans,

I, and my fellow signatories, hereby make these promises to you:

1. We will always respect you for your conservative beliefs. We will never, ever, call you "unpatriotic" simply because you disagree with us. In fact, we encourage you to dissent and disagree with us.

2. We will let you marry whomever you want, even when some of us consider your behavior to be "different" or "immoral." Who you marry is none of our business. Love and be in love -- it's a wonderful gift.

3. We will not spend your grandchildren's money on our personal whims or to enrich our friends. It's your checkbook, too, and we will balance it for you.

4. When we soon bring our sons and daughters home from Iraq, we will bring your sons and daughters home, too. They deserve to live. We promise never to send your kids off to war based on either a mistake or a lie.

5. When we make America the last Western democracy to have universal health coverage, and all Americans are able to get help when they fall ill, we promise that you, too, will be able to see a doctor, regardless of your ability to pay. And when stem cell research delivers treatments and cures for diseases that affect you and your loved ones, we'll make sure those advances are available to you and your family, too.

6. Even though you have opposed environmental regulation, when we clean up our air and water, we, the Democratic majority, will let you, too, breathe the cleaner air and drink the purer water.

7. Should a mass murderer ever kill 3,000 people on our soil, we will devote every single resource to tracking him down and bringing him to justice. Immediately. We will protect you.

8. We will never stick our nose in your bedroom or your womb. What you do there as consenting adults is your business. We will continue to count your age from the moment you were born, not the moment you were conceived.

9. We will not take away your hunting guns. If you need an automatic weapon or a handgun to kill a bird or a deer, then you really aren't much of a hunter and you should, perhaps, pick up another sport. We will make our streets and schools as free as we can from these weapons and we will protect your children just as we would protect ours.

10. When we raise the minimum wage, we will pay you -- and your employees -- that new wage, too. When women are finally paid what men make, we will pay conservative women that wage, too.

11. We will respect your religious beliefs, even when you don't put those beliefs into practice. In fact, we will actively seek to promote your most radical religious beliefs ("Blessed are the poor," "Blessed are the peacemakers," "Love your enemies," "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God," and "Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."). We will let people in other countries know that God doesn't just bless America, he blesses everyone. We will discourage religious intolerance and fanaticism -- starting with the fanaticism here at home, thus setting a good example for the rest of the world.

12. We will not tolerate politicians who are corrupt and who are bought and paid for by the rich. We will go after any elected leader who puts him or herself ahead of the people. And we promise you we will go after the corrupt politicians on our side FIRST. If we fail to do this, we need you to call us on it. Simply because we are in power does not give us the right to turn our heads the other way when our party goes astray. Please perform this important duty as the loyal opposition.

I promise all of the above to you because this is your country, too. You are every bit as American as we are. We are all in this together. We sink or swim as one. Thank you for your years of service to this country and for giving us the opportunity to see if we can make things a bit better for our 300 million fellow Americans -- and for the rest of the world.

From Zeph Daniel


Hi Jeff -

O, my heart aches. I love John Kaminski's work, but he has a blind spot, and I'm going to help resolve it, I hope.

I am a Christian. I am a minister to a non-traditional congregation of lambs, that is, real Christians...those not hiding as satanists behind Jesus' Name and right wing politics. For the record then, GEORGE W. BUSH IS NOT A CHRISTIAN. NEVER HAS BEEN, AND I HOPE HE WILL BE.

Luciferians love to hide behind Christianity. Satanists (Freemasons) infiltrated the churches long ago. They always planned on bringing in their New World Order (New Tower of Babel) through the established churches, which are little more than Bait and Switch operations for Satan and Satanism. This is a great victory for evil because, on the one hand, these buffoons totally discredit Jesus so no one seeks him, and 2) warmongers and evildoers can hide their lust for death, destruction and filthy lucre behind the covering of the church. Win win!

Bush is Skull and Bones, which is Satanism. You can't be a skull and in Christ, just like you can't go left and right at the same time. Two completely opposite systems. Skull and Bones is one wing of the Brotherhood of Death. Also connected to all secret societies...those who go to war as a human sacrifice to their god, Lucifer. Anyone who is for the war in Iraq is NOT A CHRISTIAN, though the entire church seems to be salivating on the upcoming bloodbath!


"What would Jesus do?" Our kingdom is not of this world. Jesus came as a sword, and Biblically, that simply means Truth. You, John, are a sword, and the pen is mightier than the sword. The light of Christ, the Truth of Jesus, cannot exist where there is worldliness, warmongering, greed and the need to push the weaker down so the bully-thugs can rise up. That is tyranny...and if right-wing so-called "Christians" are bringing that to bear, then let us call them what they are. Criminals. Satanists. Selfish, bigoted, greedy warmongering thieves who can't wait to see people other than themselves or their skin color, bleed and die on TV.

Being in Christ is not the same as practicing religion. The true religion, according to Lord Jesus is to help the widows and orphans and to keep yourself unspotted from the world.. The Lord fights our battles, and since our Messiah has come, we do not engage in worldly battles, and don't even consider ourselves nationals so much as being bondservants of Christ, first and foremost. It matters little what country we are born into--the Lord delivers us, not the country, or our jobs, or any hopes or dreams we have in this world. Our love and consolation, if you will, is not of this world. George W. Bush's reward is in this life, most certainly not the next one, unless he truly repents which includes changing affiliations.

This world is passing away--there is no way a Christian man would let loose TOTAL PAIN AND DESTRUCTION OF CHILDREN unless he really wan not a Christian but indeed was Satanist. Satan loves doing the most harm to the most innocent--as he, even if you take Satan as an archetype of evil in the human heart LOVES human suffering, war, famine, strife, disease and anything that causes pain to humans. So the Satanist is a traitor to the human being, in exchange for riches, power and literal sacrifice to his "god". So he, Bush and others like him, sells out millions of people, and he gets to be immune and rich. His conscience then is defiled, and he actually might believe himself to be a Christian and that he is "liberating" the Iraqi people. That's hogwash, all he will do is further enslave them, then gallop onto Syria, Iran, or N. Korea to keep the Imperial fervor alive--to conquer the globe for Manifest D. the One World Luciferian Order...the festering sore on the earth for generations!

I pray for Bush to repent and serve the Lord. I encourage everyone to pray for the lost and fallen and deluded and evil, as world leaders seem to be these days. We're here to pray for them even if they do us harm. Not to be comforted in their evil, but to be convicted of their wrongdoing, tormented so that they might change, or at least know that they will reap what they sow--maybe not on my timetable, but the Lord's. These warring evildoers believe they are superior and therefore exempt from reaping their just desserts, just like Adolf Hitler, Stalin and others...yes many of us die, but they too meet the same fate, and I would rather be a lamb than a serial killer. Interesting that the Protestant church in Germany at the time of Hitler's rise was all behind "the new boy" and Hitler was certainly an occultist.

When you are dealing with the regime that brings the Satanic Rite of War, you are dealing with human sacrifice to Lucifer, and of course the spoils, your reward for doing so. The world is corrupted by this system in one way or another. Just like Mike Jagger said, "...who killed the Kennedy's--when after all, it was you and me." That's a true statement, and the reason I'm born again in Christ. Jesus is the only way out--we are all partially responsible for what's about to happen in Iraq. That is why we need a messiah.

God bless you, John Kaminski...please do not confuse phony religion and the satanic covering offered therein as having anything to do with the lambs of Christ...

Our Lord said this: "Because they hated me, they will hate you. And they hated me without cause." Oh, how they hate people like me in the churches! All of us, well, our little Remnant, is hated because we expose the phony baloney so-called "Christians" by our walk, by our presence, by our existence. By our separation from worldly pursuits etc.

Jesus was gentle and powerful in his earthly ministry. Jesus might tell us now to resist war and focus instead on yielding to God and praying for those who have lost their way. Jesus is not the way of war, that's man's folly--his way is peace. His way is love.

It grieves me to see His Name used for war--evil, wicked men will do anything to rape and pillage if they can get away with it. That's why in America we had a Constitution. I say HAD...those same Bible thumping morons allowed the wolves in sheep's clothing to shred it. And now, Katie bar the door--war without end...just as the Brotherhood of Death is taught to do in their Skull and Bones circles.

The upshot is this: I'm not welcome in "church," John...I'm sure they wouldn't want you there either. I've been invited to leave every time I told them about the real Jesus, and THAT exposes the lie of right wing extremism, Nazi-style conformity, and of course, the voluntary lobotomy process of lapping up thought-control sermons designed for unity and compliance...and now, of course, these policies pay off BIG...war with total support of the lobotomized idiots who call themselves "Christians"--don't just look at Bush.

Hal Lindsay told me (by way of television) that I am a terrorist sympathizer if I don't want to launch 3000 missiles into Baghdad! Falwell and Robertson told me that Bush is led by God, therefore I should shut up and bow down. I was told that if I put a No-War sticker on my car, my windows will be broken and tires shredded. If I don't want to shoot fish in a barrel (adding to the million or so children we already murdered in Iraq), the entire TBN network says I'm a terrorist who ought to be interned. Talk show hosts are calling for us to be muzzled and detained as enemy combatants. Other "Christian moralists" like Lindsay Graham are wanting "Christian" Bible-Thumper AG Ashcroft to imprison the brave protesters who have volunteered to be human shields in an effort to save lives. The human shields are demonstrating Christlikeness, so far as I'm concerned.

To me, it is un-American and un-Christian NOT to express your opinion, as this is the way our God-given system works. Nope, the bully thugs, thanks to the churches, have gotten the moral high ground to slaughter the entire Middle East!

Do not confuse Jesus and Satan...The Satanist always hides behind Jesus, but usually his actions are warlike, criminal and greedy. The lambs, those truly in Christ, don't wage war and usually are on society's hit list, i.e. Martin Luther King comes to mind. Now, Bush could change, and we are praying for that.

You have no idea how much it hurts to have the press call Bush the most faith-based president in history, or the holiest president we have ever had. It's so backwards. Terribly backwards...or supernaturally backwards, which means PERFECTLY BACKWARDS.

I know how you feel, John. But imagine how I feel! This is my God they're blaspheming in order to kill innocent children...I'm weeping today over all of this. I don't know what to do, I just know to pray.

May the Holy Spirit bring us comfort today. Lord, please protect the children of Iraq.

A concerned citizen writes:

"It's hard to bring the super-elite deviants/criminal sociopaths that run the world to justice since they often control the means of Justice which include the armies, intel agencies, the courts, the judiciary, the alphabets, local and national politicians, government bureaucracies and the police.

For many of these scum, justice will only occur as they reach the end of their disgusting but super-privileged lives. And then justice from on high will be dispensed with lightening speed. However, due to the apparent creeping populism that is starting explode worldwide, some might find it occurring much more rapidly.

As certain sociologists and criminologists have reported, deviants who break the law and commit the most serious felonies imaginable come in all races, cultures, social standing, occupation and rank.

Early on these sociopathic and typically sexually perverted sociopaths are recognized and selected out by high echelons in the ruling power structure i.e. 'establishment' as long as they meet at least certain base criteria. They must come from an establishment family with a long lineage of criminal power, i.e. players in the system with a proven track record; or they must have shown 'controlled' criminal sociopathy which is the ability to operate as chameleons in most public situations, able to put on a good con or front while concealing their complete lack of any human conscience. The controlled sociopathic doofus or physically recognizable buffoon that looks absurd, talks absurd, has a long record of being compromised sexually and/or is a pedophile or rapist and has no soul is often selected for high profile bureaucratic positions in law enforcement as a sort of private inside joke to the ruling super-elites. It is like watching their trained dog piss on the public's leg (quite entertaining to them). Between pissing episodes the dog oppresses the citizenry and even orders murder ops, all rationalized under the false cloak of so called 'national security' which translated means 'protecting the super-elites asses' (it never had anything to do with protecting the security of the USA).

The 'controlled and concealed' sociopath of high intelligence can be selected out and promoted high within bureaucracies where they can be used to do the dirty deeds that the ruling elites deem necessary. The ruling elites also use 'perpetual war' as a way to recruit and promote sociopaths that have proven they can and will kill with no hesitation or regrets. Special operations soldiers who have been easily conditioned to be cold blooded killers because they are sociopaths with no souls are selected out and often promoted to serve as highly paid privatized mercenaries. Many of these folks are sociopaths and cold blooded killers that won't hesitate to murder anyone if they are handle a special 'signed finding'. The ruling super elites of the shadow government are especially selecting pedophiles and rapists to do their dirty work, since this type of criminal sociopath tends to relish abusing government power on behalf of the ruling elites to keep populism from spontaneously erupting, like is in Egypt now and many European Nations who have been ripped off into bankruptcy or near bankruptcy by off shore based banksters of the ruling super elites.

Unfortunately it is very, very difficult and often impossible to ever bring these most serious sociopathic criminals and murderers to justice when they hold high positions of authority and influence in government, including congress, state legislatures, military bureaucracies, intel agencies, law enforcement and major international corporations. These sociopathic perverts in high positions of power in government, the alphabets, the police, the military or intel are provided with a 'get out of jail free' card by the ruling super-elites of the shadow government because they do their dirty work for them with no hesitation.

If one doubts these truthfulness of these hypothesis above, all one has to do is consider the history and deeds of the Meese, the Klintons, Reno, Napolitano etc. and all the other sociopathic criminals used by the ruling super-elites of the shadow government to do their dirty work with no hesitation or remorse.

The super-elites of the shadow government are playing a very dangerous game in trying to institute their one world global government or New World Order of the Ages. They are going for broke in their mad rush to get this done. Here's why. The big boys who run the whole shebang are old and near death. The sociopathic luciferian toad who has killed over a million innocent civilians is getting very old and death approaches as it does for all very old people, no matter how rich and powerful. This is also true for his controller and their associates which together can be counted on two hands. These super-elites deviants that run the shadow government are steeped in the occult and believe that if they can just stay alive long enough to seat the antichrist lucifer as god in the temple at Jerusalem they will become gods too (this is why they are obsessed with controlling the 'holy land'). They believe that they have been promised this as long as they complete the NWO task as lucifer ordered. So they are desperate to do whatever is necessary to get this NWO in place before they die. These super-elites of the shadow government that rule the world through offshore based international merchant banking, big oil, illegal narcotics and weapons trafficking are entrenched in the occult. Some come from families entrenched in it, some are recruited into these occult organizations such as the oto as they move up the shadow government food chain. The masons have been reputed to be recruiting grounds for some of these inductees.

But there is a little problem that is starting to become a very big, unmanageable problem for these super-elite shadow government rulers. It is called the world wide web (internet). Never in history has there been such a massive world wide exposure of the deviance and crimes of the ruling super = elites or the actual composition and methods of their structure. This information is like throwing water on the wicked witch of the east. Result? Creeping world wide populism that is the greatest threat the ruling super-elites have ever faced. Their time is running out and they are starting to feel cornered.

To counter this they are instituting more engineered weather and natural catastrophes via HAARP, using MK Ultra shootings, targeting police and military, instituting false flag terror, turning up HAARP, GWEN and all the psychotronic weapons against the people, increasing the mind kontrol via the TV subliminals. They are also increasing all the misinformation from the controlled major mass media, owned and run by five major international news corporations, three of which are defense contractors (all are controlled by the CIA as in 'operation mockingbird').

These super-elite sociopaths that run the world are simply running out of time. When their backs are up against the wall like never before they will become increasing desperate and murderous, easily resorting to use of biological weapons, engineered plagues, chemtrail spraying to destroy the food chain and contaminate the water, etc. But time is quickly running out and these criminals may die before they attain their goals that their bloodline families have dreamed of and plotted for many, many years.

The peoples of many nation states are learning the truth and are hopping mad, and many will not take it any more. It may only be a matter of time before the fires of populism spread out of control all over the world no matter what weapons are brought against them. And every new attack on the populace appears to have a counter reaction 'back at them', as the saying goes 'what goes around comes around'.
