Propaganda alert: Who named the Russian missile Satan?

Answer is easy, it’s not anybody in Russia…  More Like The Terror Cartel In The Arlington-Langley-K Street Axis of Evil.But of course the Usual Suspects tell a different story, one they made up in their tiny little available brain cells. Mind, Russia never nuked anybody. The Grand Club of Nations who have nuked is exactly one. Ours. Allegedly ours. We’re supposed to call it “ours” although nobody I’ve ever met has actually shown ownership. Anyway, this is a straight across copy from Space4Peace Bruce Gagnon. Enjoy. Read more »


“Angel Dad” and other Snotzi Lying Racist Scum.

DumFux Snooze Nutwerks is providing a “statistic” that 30% of U.S. homicides are committed by immigrants. That means, if it was true…(remember, we’re talking Fux News here, consider the source) 70% would be by Citizens. Minutemen, Klan, MAGA disciples, read the truth. Learn to read. I know the Trump Disciples can’t read very fast so I’m typing this really slowly. At least some of them are semi-literate,  they read the propaganda to the ones who can’t. You know who you are. In the immortal words of Joe Wilson: “YOU LIE!”


Yemeni people in Yemen treated like Homeless PEOPLE in America

The criminal Elitists don’t care less (or more) for Yemeni people than they do for American people. There’s a bill being pushed in the Colorado Legislature, to be voted on TODAY, “the Right to Rest”, to stop jailing and dehumanizing People who don’t have homes. There are elitist pricks who want to take the vote away from people who rent rather than own. The lie they tell is that tenants don’t pay property taxes. But,,,, where do the landlords get the money to pay property taxes? Real Estate rentals are a big moneymaker, otherwise there wouldn’t be any investment in doing so. The land barons didn’t create the land, they didn’t take a single square foot of land from the “savage” but they sure did hire, at other people’s expense, soldiers to kill the natives and imprison any who weren’t murdered. They got it “dirt cheap”, they’re still doing it here and abroad, and they can blacklist people, many of them soldiers who were instrumental in expanding the Empire in Iraq and Yemen and Saudia and Israel and all the other Puppet “democracies” where all human rights are leased on a day-to-day basis. Don’t support the Puppet Masters? Say so aloud? You won’t be allowed to even rent a home.You won’t have a place to lay your head and if you insist on surviving they’ll throw you in jail, and they’ll force you to work essentially for no wages to “pay your debt to society”. They’ll say “love it or leave it, but to another jurisdiction which is owned by the same cowardly lazy so-called “Elite” thieves.


Tillerson is out. Too Moderate. Not psychopathic enough.

Doesn’t get any simpler than that.


Right to Rest Law…

Today, as I was going with Miss Johnnie to her orthopaiedic office -I saw crews taking the life-supporting humble belongings from the camps of the poorest people in Colorado.  If you can’t get into shelter you don’t have any rights to property or to Life Itself. Dare to fight back, the PIGS will shoot you IN the back. There’s a measure in the Colorado Legislature that will be voted up or down tomorrow. The effete Wealthy Elitists who don’t care about the guns they sell to impoverish people around the war, are more embarrassed by People, many War Veterans, not so much them being dispossessed and impoverished, but they’re embarrassed that the survivors of the Wars the Corporate Thieves And Murderers used to gain their money…. the veterans and others are VISIBLE. The Local Churches like Focus on The Family and New Life applaud and preach to their congregations that the homeless people deserve to be exterminated.

Presidential Math 101

And here I was thinking Bush couldn’t count past ten without taking off his boots. Trump in Pennsylvania stated he created 300,000 jobs. The number of American People is 330,000,000. More or less. Aside from his not having any of his economic agenda accomplished,  330,000,000 ÷ 100 =3,300,000 three hundred thirty million divided by one hundred (1%) equals three million and three hundred thousand.     3,300,000 ÷ 10 =330,000 (.1%) three million three hundred thousand divided by 10 equals three hundred thirty thousand , one tenth of one percent.  330,000 is MORE than the 300,000 number cited. Aside from him pulling the original estimate out of his or perhaps his friends ass,  that’s a dismal statistic. But who was dumber, him or all the supporters who also didn’t do any math before cheering?

Army papers say planned coup of Russia/slash Putin

Army document: US strategy to ‘dethrone’ Putin for oil pipelines might provoke WW3. Senior DIA, Air Force and Army officials admit that NATO expansionism and US covert interference in Russian internal politics may trigger “next global conflict”.

USA Today Weekend Op Ed says to not take Florida Teens seriously

Because kids who were thrust into the front line by a second-amendment idiot aren’t smart enough to realize that it’s all for their own good. Or something similar. God strike me down if I’m stupid enough to pay $1.50 to find out. Sometimes, many times, it’s wise to judge a book by it’s cover.


A silent tribute to the judicial reform martyrs


There’s a Music Awards show on Sunday, the commercial asks ‘who will win?’

anybody who doesn’t watch the show… that’s who. Compared with some of the other stuff it’s downright light-hearted or maybe light headed.


How did Edward Jones investment bank get assets of more than $1 Trillion?

That’s what they ask on their commercials. The real answer is they’re thieves who have raided the treasuries of the U.S. and other economic Corporate Governments, including being a huge beneficiary of the Obama bailout of the richest bitches in America. Remember that? The poor were scapegoats for the breakdown, people who control less than a percent of the U.S. wealth? Scapegoat doesn’t ring accurately, according to the Law of Moses the scapegoat is let free. The only Jewish sacrifice that involved the animal surviving the ceremony. Edward Jones and the rest of Capitalism are thieves. Plain and simple. The U.S. government has been creating wealth for the Already Wealthy since before the Corporate State was actually called the U.S. and bailed out the Rich, and ONLY the Rich, ever since the Mayflower Compact. And as always, the Capitalists will LIE about their sources of support. The wars started or joined into by the U.S. government were organized slaughter of the Peasant Army (and other ‘services’) slaughtering other Peasant armies around the globe to deprive the other Corporate Governments of the resources controlled by those Corporate Governments. Theft and Murder and we’re supposed to support and celebrate it. We’re commanded by the propagandists to teach our children to swear allegiance to The Corporate State. We’re told to never tell our children the TRUTH. The Corporate States of America call that treason.


Small-minded legislature and AG and Governor removed all tenant’s rights..

For the past two months we’ve been dispossessed, living in a motel. It eats up our funds and all because of greed at the hand of our former landlord. We had paid rent for 17 years, in cash, but on a month to month basis, and he put us out with no regrets on his part. Because he could get 55% more rent. Dude needs to have a Damascus Road event in his spiritual life. This kind of action is being copied all across Colorado. The legislature decided to remove all tenant’s rights. Alles Sieg Heil am der Uberfuhrer Trump! Alles sieg heil am der UnterFuhrer Suthers! All hail the greedy rat bastards like Jim Newell, Slumlord extraordinaire! We actually, over the past 17 years, paid off his mortgage and more, got years of neglect and having to fix mostly by ourselves and at our expense every repair he wouldn’t do. Didn’t give a written explanation of why he did it that way. And of course the Noble State courts or cops won’t do anything about any of it. Rich Bitches like Newell have things their own way, and fuck anybody who isn’t wealthy. The punk has a Stagecoach rental business too, if he treated his horses the same way he treats the tenants, he’d be up on charges for Animal Cruelty.


Terry Maketa gets free pass on his crimes, just like every other pig EXCEPT…

…except for the piggies who had their cases tried in the Street Court. And got their ticket to Hell expedited. Soon or prolonged, they all go to Hell. I don’t have to do anything to them, they gather their arrogance, murders and other crimes to their nasty little hearts, each day becoming more of a harsh burden, the weight of it makes their existence more onerous and as they’re taking their last gasps of air, they know they are bound for their date with Satan. There will be their Satanic Chaplains Ed Maxwell, Donna Mills, Bill Winter, Gino Geraci, Jerome Nixon, Larry and Jan Loser, Robert Ofee, Manny Hays, Bob Paige, Bill Payton, Tim Shaffer, Carl Nelson II, all of them. any of  them, comforting the Pig’s family with lies about how noble daddy or grandpa was and they’re certainly in heaven and  they, the chaplains, are going to Hell with all the other piggies. Maketa and the paid-off “prosecutors” and judges will join their comrades in Hell, soon or many years from now.

City planning ‘homeless roundup’ to make themselves pretty for Olympics parade?

There’s hoovervilles all over town but most prominently on the likely route for such a parade. Got to hide that dead and rotting pachyderm in the antechamber. Don’t want the Capitalist “leaders” who make money from killing people overseas and especially in America to have to see the results, in human form, of their greed economy, now, do they? Make the pampered athletes trained and clothed and fed and housed by tax money, taxes funded by War Profiteering look as bad as the policies already are?


Billy Graham died, t-Rump lost his mind, stupidity abounds

In other words, the only news in that opening is Graham joined with eternity. t-lump lost his mind a long time ago. He just piled stupid on top of ignorance and his disciples are calling for more. Armed teachers, MORE guns in schools? Here’s an alternative scenario… The Republican Party could pull their long-time support for the NRA, Heritage Foundation, Ku Klux Klan, and other race-wing lunatic fringe uber-violent domestic TERRORISTS. That’s not bloody likely, mate.


When you can’t actually drive a car and know the rules but do it anyway..

When you can’t actually drive a car and know the rules but do it anyway.. They first take a lot of your money and if you don’t bother to learn to pay your tickets and/or not learn to drive right, they start arresting you. Zero tolerance really. But you can buy a gun and walk into a school and just light the place up. No requirements at all. The NRA makes their members buy those stupid bumper stickers that say “I’m NRA and I Vote” and other crap written by oversized infants like Cheney or t Rump or Teddy Potty Panties Nugent and their ilk.. and you pay dues. And they make the members swear to learn the safety rules, formulated by billions of man-hours worth of experience, BUT the only part the NRA actually enforces is Paying Your Dues. They use that money to buy senator, representatives and presidents and governor and cop and judges and prosecutors… to make certain that anybody who wants a gun and buys it can have it. Rules? Oh, once you shoot somebody they’ll prosecute, if you’re not rich, like Cheney, for instance.. You can act all kinds of crazy about how you want to kill people, prance around your yard waving guns and still keep the god-damn guns. Completely. And when you blow 17 kids into the next life the NRA and their paid-off officials put more money into propaganda that justifies (to them) giving really stupid people guns.


Just like Ft Worth and Here and other Lynch ‘Law’ locales…

Sort of like here and Ft Worth.. not really.. the “sort of like” statement softens the hard truth. Our mayor here, Suthers, was the Gestapo Uberfuhrer aka Attorney General of Colorado and made damned sure the PIGS never get punished for their crimes, especially murders of “fleeing suspects” and prisoners. Coward scum killed Michael Marshall, an mentally ill inmate who was killed in November 2015 by Denver Sheriff Dept and John Walter in 2014 in Fremont County murdered by Sheriff Officers Corporal Maas and Hudspeth and Sgt Greene with the help of the Correctional Health “care” corporation and Fremont County paramedics… and the Attorney General’s office. Marvin Booker in a jail office because he came out of his cell without putting on his shower shoes. Fucking pigs, in all cases. If your loved one dies in a jail in any state but especially Colorado, you can bet a thousand percent of your ass that the Pigs Did It, Deliberately and for the purpose of pure Powertripping. And Suthers made it easy for them. There’s a pattern of the Cop Establishment paying PUBLIC MONEY, to buy off the Pig ass-holes so they never get charged of a crime. If a PIG gets killed the Sheeple canonize the PIG as though he was a saint.


Veterans Affairs budget on CSPAN right now.

They’re temporarily raising funding, but Rep Phil Roe R Tennessee is talking cutting (redirecting) Appeals. Meaning anybody who is screwed by the Privatization Dr Roe also advocates, doesn’t get an appeal.  Then there’s the Really Big Dead Elephant Stinking Up The Parlor…. Stop the Fucking Wars and the rest will fall into place. Rep. Tim Walz D Minnesota is questioning the numbers. 4 billion emergency funds and a 20 Billion shortfall. Some more repetitious advice from ME… Stop the Fucking Wars. None of the wars being fought right now, the 800 U.S. offshore Military Bases, not one penny of it is actually defending America.

Alternate title: How do I get outta this Micky Mouse Outfit…

Lost Angels Times reported on a gang problem at Disneyland. No, really. Social Clubs, hard-core Disney fanatics with annual passes, roaming around wearing biker style colors. Rumble Jackets. Like Hell’s Angels, Bandidos, Sons of Silence only… Well, you have to see it to believe it… I thought they were grinning me. Yuppies Drool!


and then there’s this…

Hackernoon  reports that there is now the global deficit (debt)  currently well over $233 Terabux (for those inexperienced with my particular one-man patois, that’s a Trillion Dollars. The U.S. budget is allegedly 1 trillion.) estimated 270 terabux. According to Bloomberg. Which has one feature I don’t. People can’t just go on the Bloomberg sites and troll. I don’t have the imagination to think up shit like this. For the further record, just in case the rabid credit consumers, investors and such, “credit”  which should be called “debit” is really overstated. And debit as in “debit card” which means money you actually have, is denigrated as undesirable. One ‘credit’ investment firm runs commercials with the tag line “don’t get mad, just invest the money you don’t have into our treasure horde” essentially saying anybody who doesn’t get on board is envious. And no, that’s not the same as Jealous. Jealous means you believe somebody is macking on your stash. Envious means you’re macking on somebody else’s stash.  I give free english lessons for those bigots and racists who say everybody has to learn english but don’t do it themselves. You’re Welcome. Anyhow, there’s another very respected Capital Thief bank claiming a trillion dollars in assets, mostly because they got their own collective ass bailed out during the last crash. The people who lost everything by investing in their scam didn’t get the bailout. Just the billionaire bigpigs, like Trump. Just one example. Scared yet? Read on… Read more »


Russian team banned, go to Seoul and get to compete anyway

I guess the Team USA feel the only way they can win is if the Russians don’t compete. Here’s my take.Awwww… ‘merican athletes don’t get the competition eliminated so they’ll have to actually earn any victory. Team USA, you can do your gig better than I do. Not that I give three quarters of a fat rat’s left testicle, it’s GAMES. If you ever do something worthwhile in life, something that actually makes a difference to the world or the U.S. … Remember summer games 1972? I do. The U.S. basketball team lost by a couple of points to the Russians in what the Team Crybaby U.S.A. say was a bad call from the referees, so they as a team refused to take the Silver medal and still do. Get over yourselves, REAL pro basketball teams have the same thing every week. They don’t spend the next 45 years whining about it. Grow Up already. I’m going to put this on the NotMyTribe blog here in Colorado Springs.

another nazi pig bites the dust

As Homer put it. El Paso County Concentration Camp guard got his head blown off. Too bad. He looks like one of the Pigs who beat me up while I was handcuffed. But since they ALL look alike, and they make their appearance as close to each other as possible, so their victims can’t  readily identify their attackers. Sure sign of Fascism. Pigs don’t like the designation, too bad. They did it to themselves. They don’t protect anybody except their billionaire Masters. When they beat somebody down, they tell you they’re better than you, but since they have to do their violent crimes in a GANG, have to hide behind an anonymous badge and clothes and their Fellow PIGS, just like the Gestapo, they prove to their victims what vicious nasty chickenshit punks they (the PIGS) truly are. Their Masters pat them on the head and congratulate them for their “Courage”. Yeah, PIGS, lick those Bankster boots. You’re just uniformed Slaves yourself. May your recently deceased buddy will greet you at the entrance of Hell.


and the stocks go down, as the floods go up…

Infrastructure on the coasts, gone. Bull Market, stampeding down the path, leaving their droppings… everywhere… for those who don’t recognize the Sunday School song, “the rains come down and the floods go up
and the house on the Rock stays put”
alternating with
“and the house on the sand falls down!”
Infrastructure on the middle, in the mountains, terminally fucked. What next? For the answers to these questions, tune in next week for the next episode of Dope.


Something to resist and how to do it…

The Air Farts and Army and really all the ‘services’ have a shortfall in the longwar plans. For a couple of years after the conquest/invasion/liberation of the Iraq and Afghan peoples, those deployed or on U.S. bases doesn’t matter, reserve or National Guard as well, who had finished their enlistment contract Only The Fucks In The White House And Pentagon and Congress invoked a clause that they can keep you in the Military for the rest of your life if the ‘mission’ needed you. So they were a) ramping up the recruiting and b)red-lining discharges. Now, many will ask, as they often do “Jonah, what the Hell are you talking about?”

“Trump calls for unity” in SOTU

Yeah. Fascist dogma is all about unity. Every dictator in the world demanded or still demands that the entire population agree with him and offer(ed) incentives like an “enemy” nation “threatening” him and his host country, and of course offers the incentive of “Or get put in jail or killed” option. Usually makes the people conform to dress and conduct codes like
