Mark Iannicelli Denver Revolutionary

Mark Iannicelli
The heart and soul of any revolution is found in the people who find the courage to stand up to the power of the state and cry out for justice. Such a man is Mark Iannicelli. Mark’s crime is to quietly and consistently inform the citizens of their rights. For this the state have brought the full force and power of their kangaroo courts with the aid of the Denver puppet police. Mark must be silenced, the status quo must be maintained.

Trump fever is the new Antisemitism

Mostly because he got the vote of the Angry White Males who are stymied in their goal of making America a permanently white dynastic order. Which includes their version of Christianity and excludes all other people. Think they like Minorities who are White? The only white majority they’re going to accept is the White Anglo Saxon Protestants and even then those who are “jnokd” which is a country club elitist acronym Just Not Our Kind, Dear.

What’s so special about a handgun that shoots black teenagers with impunity? It’s standard issue for police officers.

Celebrated lynchmobster and justice miscarriage George Zimmerman put his Kel-Tec PF-9 handgun up for auction. Today the cheapo “pocket nine” nine-millimeter with which Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin with impunity sold for a quarter of a million dollars. A portion of which Zimmerman pledges will go toward countering the Black Lives Matter movement which arose when Trayvon’s lynching went unpunished.


Gag-zette has “comments disabled for this story”

Maybe it’s because people who are god-damned sick and tired of the Gazette taking the Right Wing stance of always giving the Pigs a blanket amnesty for any crimes they commit.  Typical wingnut behavior. Nothing to see, citizen, nothing to see. The story now is that they took him to a hospital. Probably after beating him to death. “Him” being Jeremy Thompson.     And the people who have learned, through many many many many Deaths In Custody and the typical coverup efforts would demand the Gazette and all other LameStream Media outlets actually grow a set and actually ask real questions rather than just covering up for their darling pigs.

RIP Jeremy Thompson, 45, murdered by Fountain Pigs

Colorado Springs Pig Department are assisting in the usual coverup.    Fountain Pigs said he was uncooperative. The usual meaning of that is “didn’t bow down and kiss their collective Gestapo ass” and yes, I am biased about how the Nazi rat bastards do these murders. Oh, and they “found him dead in the cell” too. Just like their Mommas taught them. Gang up on the prisoner, in a cell where there’s no witness other than their Fellow Pigs and yes, that includes paramedics… the El Paso County Coroner is of course going to exonerate his Fellow Pigs. Nothing to see, Citizen, keep moving, nothing to see here… Literally, as they haven’t even put the victims picture up in the Tame Ass Mainstream so-called News.
 
It’s standard operating procedure.


Commercialism 101

“buy one, get one free..” Translation into Real Language: The regular price is more than twice as high as it should be and you’re being gouged. Rectally and with a blunt instrument. Political Science is a perfect mirror for that concept, as the same methods of persuasion are used in both disciplines.


Donald Chump pretends to be Holy Roller

One quote is that “the art of the deal” is great but he prefers the Bible.  Yeah. As I recall the “Deal” book, he did confess nay, brethren, boast about ripping people off. The Bible instructs you to be righteous by demonstrating, start to finish, that people are just not getting it right. The “holy” men of the Bible are examples of just how degenerate people can get.  Especially when money and power (is there really a separation point between the twain?) are at stake. And it does also point out that stealing isn’t nice. Makes the point clearly. And that’s only one starting point. I’ll add Mr Donald to the list of people who, if they visit a church I attend (or anywhere else for that matter) I shall sit as far away as possible.

To the assmunches who did the DDOS attack

We sure are sorry we frightened you so much you dropped a Spam Bomb on us. Were we coming too close to your imaginary power base? Don’t worry, wordpress has the tools to fix this and you can do something else which is equally stupid somewhere else.

More US Navy Piracy and other Racist Pig Actions

revengeArrrhh this be a bump of a prior theme, that of the US Military and specifically the Navy committing acts of Piracy such as their seizure of the Morning Glory, a privately owned oil tanker which was transporting its cargo Which Unfortunately For The Shippers came from a region of Libya which is not in the direct control of The Empire. So the REAL Neighborhood Bully (Reagan fans can suck it) robbed the owners of the cargo and the Fox Propaganda Team proclaimed those owners to be Terrorists. The picture is a National Lampoon issue called “The Revenge Issue”.  And shows a Racist picture of a clearly Arabic man being punched in the face. Why? Because OPEC nations had demanded a fair price for their product.

Insightful photos of Hillary Trump

Hillary TrumpI’ve been laughing at this photo for so long now that I’m not certain it is a photoshop mashup. It may be possible that Hillary and the Donald share the same face. Their only difference is gender, maybe. Hillary feminists are counting on their candidate’s inherent maternal instinct to subvert her just one of the boys warhawkish temperment. I’m not convinced sociopathology reflects gender. If we want a bonafide benevolent mother, we might start with one that hasn’t authored mass infanticide.

Speaking of consumer protests…

Like the Buy Nothing Day.. On December 12th 2014 NPR aired its Wall Street Journal Report (and WSN is published by Fox which constantly bad-mouths and trash-talks NPR and would never run a full NPR news item) that American 99%ers owe it to the 1% to go back into debt.
The item said that most Americans had cleared their credit card debts.
This is not to say that Most American Debt had been cleared. It actually states that The Vast Majority Of Debt In America is owned by a very tiny minority. Perhaps the much maligned (by WSN and FOX) notion of The 1%, hmmm? And these uber-rich actually declared on a news medium they despise (NPR) the 99% somehow owe the Wall Street Fat Cats a return to debt slavery. I’ll finish this real soon. For the nonce, please enjoy the little teaser. The WSJ on NPR was explaining a bit about the Federal Reserve interest rates. Seems a margin of debt that’s hard to define or delineate is necessary to the cash flow which those of us from whom the cash flows already realize that the flow is constant and upstream. We’re paying their debt so they don’t have to do so.


I’m having a little issue with consumerism/marketing

As is everybody. I don’t watch TV very attentively. But it’s still there and a loving God in His infinite wisdom and mercy somehow neglected to give me earlids, so I can’t insulate myself from it and still remain in modern society. Who in the world now has not seen that lizard representation of an insurance company? Just for instance. They’re branding us. and that’s their exact word for it. When I was a kid branding was usually an exclusive term about livestock. Branding a calf is your way of declaring ownership.

Guaranteed stinky breath

There’s a great big commercial hoo-hah going on about putting whiskey in hamburgers. On a quick religious notion, they already put cheese and bacon on them so it’s a double anti-kosher. And the specific whiskey is corn likker. Moonshine or Bourbon, whatever you call it. Bourbon is just moonshine that’s been aged (and they paid the tax) and moonshine is just raw bourbon. And it does more than make you stupid.

Obama Hiroshima visit not first time US president returns to scene of war crime

We’re told President Obama’s visit to Hiroshima will the first by a sitting US president. Hiroshima being where America demonstrated its first atomic bomb. Ranked by scale of civilian casualties, Hiroshima has multiple sister cities who could share the honor of being sites of the greatest single day attrocity beneath US bombers. Travelogue wise, if there isn’t a sign saying “Washington slept here” obvously everywhere has a first for American presidents, so what makes Hiroshima newsworthy? Let’s agree as the objective of Oppenheimer’s Manhattan Project, Hiroshima was the most calculated. Nagazaki was the reproductive test serving as reprise for the international stage. Obviously President Obama’s next visit should be to Nagazaki as proof that paying tribute via presidential visitation doesn’t amount to an apology, expression of regret, or even recognition of a lesson learned. The gesture may be a nod to self-reflection but it’s not guilt. What Obama is doing is taking a bow. The imperial pageant of unending curtain calls, for an old show called gunboat diplomacy.

Harriet Tubman to be on the $20

YESSSSSSSSS!!! Although some loudmouth right wing hate freaks disagree. Maybe Trump’s stupid mouth is going to spout something about his fellow land-thief Jackson will be kicked off the currency. Me likey very muchly!
 
And not just because he was selling Cherokee land while the Cherokee nation were actually fighting alongside him in the Creek Wars/slash/Shawnee Prophet Tesquatana’s war. Washington Post editorial was that Tubman never fought for Capitalism or Free Trade. Bullshit. She put her ass on the line for Real Freedom for human beings who were traded as property. And Jackson was a slaveholder. Hey, some people like the author of that editorial have a great void in their lives that they can only fill with racist crap and hatred. These are the ones who oppose all non-white immigration but say they’re not racist. The ones who like Trump believe that they have a legal and moral privilege and duty to deport all Muslims. Including those whose families have been in America as long as Jackson’s family.

women and the draft

Up until a week ago women were excluded from the draft (as in Selective Service, just to avoid confusion. Sometimes I’m accused of being too much detailed but if I went to glib short statements people would bitch about that too so I’ll go with with being condemned for doing a good job rather than a poor one.) But there was a lawsuit, several in fact but the one in question was brought by women because it is discrimination. It’s all discrimination anyway because obviously personal wealth does count.

Special Ops Warrior “Charity”

The big-pigs who sold us the War at the cost of all our budget allocations for generations to come, want us, the ones who are to be responsible for the monster deficit, to pay their bills as  a “Charity” for the college education of the children of the men sent to kill and be killed for the profits of the Big-Pigs. Why don’t the Big-Pigs pay the money? They make Beaucoup Bread off other people dying, so the Fat-Cat RichBitch chickenshit chickenhawks ran up the bill, the God-damned self made bastards ought  to pay it themselves. Maybe by paying their share of the taxes. They make the money and like General Electric take every loophole to evade paying a measurable fraction.  They sell the War itself with slick advertising, then sell the equipment, the forks for the mess hall, shoelaces, buttons for the uniforms, bullets and guns and everything imaginable EXCEPT their own blood or the blood of their nasty coward piglets. Well?

It was bound to happen… KISS went mainstream.

Is this the end? KISS is playing at a rodeo in Cheyenne Wyoming. Headbangers around the world go into mourning. It’s a cheerleading  concert for Our Boys in The War.
 
OK so maybe it’s not as shocking as Arlo playing at a Trump rally would be. Somehow I get the idea that it’s like the time I went to Arbor Daze celebrations in Euless and the Monkees, Three Dog Night and other hippie bands played in free concerts. I was glad to hear them perform live, but… It was in the middle of a field next to the library in Euless Texas.
