#VanillaISIS, Y’AllQaeda, YokelHaram, al-Shabubba waging YeeHawd. Har har there but for the grace of an IQ go you.


So where’s the solidarity? Yes the Bundy rancher insurrection is a fight for settler colonial privilege, Yes the hunter-soldierers are reenacting the Okies land rush of the Indian Territories. Yes this Cabelas militia is waging #YeeHawd against the gub’mint for every wrong reason. Such as, the God-given right to despoil the commons, and such as. But NO these paleoammosexuals are not “terrorists”. They can’t even pack their own lunch. What they are are dumbass carbon-bigfoots. Their hillbilly occupation is a sidearmed rebellion. That said, the camo-twits have declared war on the US government. That’s closer to the barricades than you’ve ever ventured.

Under cover of stupid, they’ve brought guns. It’s unbecoming but the strategy has averted a shutdown thus far. Guns speak truth to power in the language power understands. And the oafs are trying to protect the people’s land from the BLM. That’s your wet dream for stopping pipelines, fracking, and ecocide. Of course these yokels want to facilitate the plunder of nature, but that’s no different than the corporate media. They’re not villains, they’re the shills.

Please stop complaining that if these white privileged jerks were black they’d get the whipping they’d deserve. What are you, cheerleading for a violent authoritarian response?! Same as with rioting fratboys, you don’t have to love them, just don’t call for their smackdown. The police need to ease up with the heavy hand, not spread the brutality with equal opportunity.

Same as the drunk fratboys, these “patriots” have zero political awareness. They are no emergent right wing, they’re not fascists. The Bundy posse is to political movements what the Westboro Baptist Church was to activism. No resemblance. Poisoned apples to oranges.

Cliven Bundy, like Donald Trump, is a distraction from the real fascistm long firmly entrenched.

Of course these poachers should be run off public land, without a federal show of air suppremacy. Don’t echo the call for imperial airstrikes. Instead of igniting a Waco, let’s wait the yokels out, slap them with fines, expropriate their gear and put them in jail. Setting a forest fires should be severely punished. But don’t let me hear supposed anti-government social media pundits cry for the ass-kicking of these wannabe-brighter insurgents.

A regime which terrorizes the have-less with drones and death squads and war has no business defining what is and isn’t terrorism, least of all the push-back.

#NotMyRevolution #FuckYou. First they came for the dumb yokels, but I was not a dumb yokel so I said nothing. It’s not without irony that the point of Martin Niemoller’s lament escapes you.

Baby Doc Duvalier back in Haiti…

No, really, the ex-dictator is back. Maybe he’s hoping to steal some more, only this time there’s no Haitian money to take.
Perhaps from the international aid to Haiti? Negotiate a deal for a U.S. air base perhaps? Of course in the middle of a rigged election where, just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, there are U.S. soldiers at the polls with machine guns to make sure nobody votes for an unapproved candidate. keep order.
And what of his private goon-squad “police” Les Tontons Macoutes? (French for eater of fools, a boogieman figure)

And the announcement that Wikileaks is about to receive Swiss Bank records, a favorite place for Corporate Dictators, such as the Duvaliers, Cheneys and Bushes to stash stolen assets.
And then, courtesy of Austin Texas online underground newspaper The Rag, contributing author Jason Flaherty

Lewis Lucke, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Agency for International Development (US AID) was named U.S. special coordinator for relief and reconstruction after the earthquake. He worked this job for a few months, then immediately moved to the private sector, where he could sell his contacts and connections to the highest bidder. He quickly got a $30,000-a-month (plus bonuses) contract with the Haiti Recovery Group (HRG).

HRG had been founded by Ashbritt, Inc., a Florida-based contractor who had received acres of bad press for their post-Katrina contracting. Ashbritt’s partner in HRG is Gilbert Bigio, a wealthy Haitian businessman with close ties to the Israeli military. Bigio made a fortune during the corrupt Duvalier regime, and was a supporter of the right wing coup against Haitian president Aristide.

Gee, what an amazing coincidence, “Aid” profiteers in Haiti getting huge contracts, guarded by U.S. Military and….
With ties to the Duvaliers. One of whom just flew home, to pick up the pieces of his own profiteering business.
After bankrupting the People of the nation he claims to love, first by stealing all the assets of the country, then leaving the PEOPLE of Haiti under harsh economic sanctions set to be in place until They paid HIS bills,

Brought them down to such a level of poverty, while he and his piglets were living the high-life in France, that a relatively minor earthquake had and still has the potential to destroy them completely.
What a true Patriot this fellow must be!

Our Phine Phreaky Phriend Pastor Phred Phelps Praises AZ shooting

Just when you thought that ALL the roaches had crawled out of their cracks in the wall on this…
 
Now, what do you suppose would happen if another group, say a more left-leaning group, wanted to give the American Child the Right Wing murdered an Honor Guard? Showed up to give like Military Honors to Christina Green, age 9, in a non-intrusive ceremony, with a 21-gun salute (actually, 7 rifles fired simultaneously three times) And let’s then say that one of the Honor Guard became so Unhinged at the massive hatred spewing from the Godless Lips of Pastor Phred? And, as soldiers often do, takes aim….

Would Pastor Phred accept his death as being God’s Wrath upon HIM for inciting bloodshed in the world and particularly in America?

His hate-rallies were just one more “point of light” to use the Fascist GHW Bush campaign slogan, in the sparkling array of bonfires, burning effigies, burning books, burning churches, burning Heretics, that have erupted across America and partly on the the direction of GHW and his Retarded Sons, and partly on the direction of Sarah Palin, and the rest of the DumFox morons, and… on the direction of Pastor Phred.

They want to light America on fire, well, they might just have done it this time.

Their assumption, as always, was that Liberals are pussies, weaklings, Easy Targets.

If they believed for an instant that there would be any resistance, any return fire, they would cower in their bunkers alternately reading Mein Kampf and the Bible, listening to Propaganda Radio waiting for Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh telling them it’s safe to come out.

I don’t know the protocol for State Funerals if a Federal Judge was murdered. I don’t know, either, if he was ever in the military. That would guarantee an Honor Guard at his goodbye-party.

“Capital” Punishment, forced compliance with Money-Worship.

If, as a Corporate Lawyer and somewhat friend suggests, Capital were the be-all and end-all for progress, economically, politically, technologically, and even spiritually, why then is Participation Made Mandatory? The Capitalist PIGS go after not only nations who opt for a more socialist economy, but communes within the Capitalist CONTROLLED countries.

Communal economies such as Anarcho-Syndicalism are brutally repressed, Unions are Brutally Repressed, by taxpayer funded State Manifestations of Power, like the Ludlow Massacre. The PIGS who murdered the 4 students at Kent State had loaded submachine guns, (M16A1) simply because earlier that day they were “negotiating” with a Teamster strike. At gunpoint. Since the guns weren’t pointed at the Corporate Faction in any of this, it’s patently obvious who exactly the Ohio National Guard were representing.

Their Rich-Bitch Owners.
If, as the Capitalists assert, it’s their own initiative, their own industry and entrepreneurship which gained them their riches, and anybody who takes government handouts is a Welfare State Junkie…

Why then don’t they “just say no” to the Welfare State subsidizing THEIR INDUSTRIES far above and beyond what pittances are accorded the Public at Large.

Instead huge amounts of Public Money is spent to ensure that the Public never rises in power. The People are kept down, especially the Working Class, by Police and Military and Court so-called “authority”, Union activity and other organized and coordinated collective action groups which benefit the individual workers above the Corporate Masters, criminalized and punished, yet so-called “revolutionaries” organized by the Corporations to protect the status-quo of Corporate Hegemony, both at home and abroad, like the so-called Tea Party so-called “patriots” not merely protected by the police and military but actually encouraged?

If the Capitalists had such hegemony, not only the right but the Duty to bring every nation and every person on earth under their dominion, if it were really patently obvious, as they insist it is, why would they spend more than half the Government Budgets of the United States, the states themselves and local “authorities” to FORCE compliance at gunpoint?

Why would it be necessary to send soldiers to other countries, to force those countries to obey the Capitalist Ideal, and why would it be necessary to lie and call such forced compliance “freedom”?

Teabag solution to AfPak gun shortage

TeaBags, Militia, Minutemen… get off your “Patriot” arse and donate your rifles to the Army. Uncle Sam needs YOU(r rifles)!
You silly bastards say you bought them, and keep buying more, for the “defense” of America, right? Against OTHER AMERICANS of course.
But the Army says it needs more high powered rifles, you know, the ones that you buy to make yourselves feel less pathetic and weak and victimierrr ummm.. “More Macho”.(strong hint: you can’t buy manhood… if you could George Bush and Karl Rove and Glenn Beck would have already bought up all the available supply.) My cousin Hank was assigned to a detail burning a warehouse filled with New, still-in-the-packing-grease AK47s in Iraq after GulfWarz One.

One of several. They put Willy Peter (W. P. = white phosphorous) which burns hot enough to melt concrete,throughout the warehouse.
For the longest time the Russians were practically giving them away, $50 to offset shipping and handling + a promise that you would use them to make trouble.

People sell them at gun shows starting at $200 apiece.
Usually, the Pentagon pays premium prices for essentially Garbage. Like the M16. I fired that one in the Air Force. Piece of Shit doesn’t do it justice. One reason was the M1 Garand and it’s derivatives, like the M14, could chamber and fire Russian ammunition. Which is a couple of microns shorter in the shell than the American .30 caliber. More or less. The shell is smaller, the slug isn’t. Bottom line, if a GI captured an AK in the many many many Non-Declared Wars like VietNam, Algeria,, Korea, etc.
It would be extra weight to carry around because once you popped off the remaining shells in the magazine, your Government Issue .30 cal rounds wouldn’t fit the chamber.

Russian ammo was a subscription-only service.

Part of the selling points for the M16 was that nobody else’s ammo fit it. You buy the rifles for an ungodly expensive price, then you sell the immortal souls of all your soldiers to Colt Arms for the Purina Gun Chow.

So, now, the Army in it’s Infinite let-us-buy-bullshit Financial Wisdom, discovers they need new guns. Those of you who bought Korean and Algerian era M1 and M14 rifles for cheap once the Army had Reduction In Force measures and dumped them onto the Surplus market, you know those rifles still worked and still DO work perfectly for their assigned tasks. Which is of course Killing People. There’s a bunch of Mausers, in the same caliber used by the AK, made for trade to the Spanish Civil War, you can buy for 25-40 bux apiece if you buy them by the hundred lot. Still work perfectly. The Afghans and the Pakistan traders had a field day with them using them against the Soviets. Probably about half the sniper rifles being used against the Invaders and Occupiers oops I mean “Liberators and Nation-builders” are of that grade.

Mauser, unlike Colt, NEVER made anything that was a cheap piece of shit.

The Army was paying (in 1979) $700 per each for M16 rifles new in the package.
Colt made a “killing” on them and by selling them to our “satellites” like VietNam and the Puppet Shah Mohamed Reza Pahlavi. The marketing line: You want Our Military Support, you buy Our Hardware.

Didn’t work for those WW2 mess kits, you know the ones? They were designed to fit on your web belt rather than any practical functionality. They’re an oblong almost ovoid shape instead of round, which would be an actually intelligent piece of engineering. The War Department also bought about 10 of them for each GI during the war. You can’t cook in the skillet portion of it, well, you can, but it will wind up making the GI chow taste even worse. Because of the shape, uneven heat distribution.

Soldiers in Algeria and VietNam would buy the French mess kits which are actually round. Thank God for a nation whose National Pastime is cooking.

The appropriate answer to “Who shit in YOUR mess-kit?” well, the War Department did. Before they were even made.
And the same with the rifles.

So, all you “Patriots”, do the Right (wing) thing. Give the Army your AK47s that you bought for cheap on the surplus market, and your M1 and M14 rifles you bought the same way. You got several Taxpayer Subsidized price breaks on them. Don’t forget to give them your shells. Purina Gun Chow is mighty expensive.

Otherwise the Army will do what they usually do and get Ripped Off by the “defense” contractors. Ripped off for OUR tax money.

You remember Taxes, right? The stuff you’re opposed to even though the Military you love so much is the main drain on Tax money? Yeah, THOSE taxes.

I plumb reckon, however, that you ain’t gonna also ENLIST or anything like that. How foolish of me to actually consider the notion that you ChickenHawk Losers would do something like that. You prefer to hang around in America, waving your machine guns and threatening American Liberals. Because your ChickenHawk Propaganda leaders at DumFox Noose Nutwerx assured you that Liberals are unarmed and also weaklings. Guess it’s easier trying to make war on people you think won’t shoot back, RIGHT?

Summation: You sorry bastards want a war, you want to kill, but you don’t want to give YOUR service or YOUR money over to the maintenance of the Wars of Conquest which benefit none but your Corporate Masters. So for the first time in your miserable misspent lives, do the Right Thing and send them your guns.

It’s the least you can do. Your kids will breathe easier knowing that Daddy isn’t going to get into one of his Screaming Fits about Liberals and accidentally (or perhaps not) shoot them.

It’s much easier to breathe when you don’t have bullets in your lungs.

The TeaBag threat

People who say they have an exclusive right to define the constitution of the united states, say that they further have a right and indeed a duty to KILL anybody, Americans included, who is “an enemy of the constitution” must I be Repetitive, why, yes I must, the Constitution that they’ve declared themselves to be the sole authority on defining, and the Mobs they incite chant these threats repeatedly while carrying Loaded, charged (round in chamber) firearms, that is a THREAT.

The TeaBags are led, organized and financed by the Bush-Cheney-Palin Cartel, cheered on by the CheneyBush Corporation’s Propaganda Division, Fox News and Clear Channel, and the specific threats they have made include targeting the President of the United States, any Senators or Representatives who defy Their Royal Decree that there be absolutely no Health Care, Environmental, Workplace Safety, Energy, Financial or War Powers reforms. And the broader general threat is against anybody who does not join them in condemning the Democratic Party outright.

That’s a very real threat. The mobs they incite carry and display loaded, charged firearms within range of (from our local perspective of their favorite gathering place, Acacia Park) roughly a quarter of the population of Colorado Springs.

Modern firearms have a range of about 2 miles even if they’re not precisely aimed there. Within that two mile radius are about 10 public schools, 5 private schools, 30 or more churches, each with a day care center, about 3 dozen more day care facilities, City Hall, the main Police Station, shopping centers, the City Bus terminal, and not only Acacia Park, also America The Beautiful Park, several others, hospitals, Nursing homes, the college.

Everything within this circle is a potential stopping place for a bullet discharged from Acacia Park.


Some of the Rightards have these bumper stickers and tee-shirts that say “Gun Control means hitting what you’re aiming at”. They get them from the NRA. An organization that aside from collecting dues from them, and providing propaganda for them, actually has Safety Rules. Like, don’t load your firearm until you’re ready to use it, don’t fire into crowds, (a quarter of the city population is a LARGE crowd) or for that matter at people in general, don’t point your weapon in the direction of people, which, again, would be everybody within that circle, don’t chamber a round until you’re ready to fire, keep the safety on.

How many of them actually follow the rules set by Their Own Organization? The statistics on Accidental Shootings in the United States give a fair estimate…

In 2002, there were 30,242 firearm-related deaths in the United States, including 17,108 (57%) suicides, 12,129 (40%) homicides (including 300 deaths due to legal intervention/war), and 1,005 (3%) undetermined/unintentional firearm deaths.
CDC/National Vital Statistics Reports, Vol. 53, No. 5, October 12, 2004, p.77.

For those with short attention spans or other reading difficulties, 300 of the 30,242 gunshot deaths in 2002, America were actually adjudicated as “self defense”
3 and a half times that were Accidental and the rest were murders and suicides.

More than 700 women every year are shot and killed as victims of domestic violence in the United States, representing 20% of all female homicide victims.
Homicide Trends in the US. Intimate homicide and Homicides by relationship and weapon type. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2002.

For those TeaBags and other Racists who insist that “Honor Killings” are only done by Muslims.
Ladies, how safe do YOU feel with both an insecure Husband and an unsecured Firearm in YOUR house?

Injuries from fierarms, non lethal…

In the United States, more than 16 cases of nonfatal, unintentional gunshot injuries occur for every unintentional shooting death; nonfatal firearm assaults outnumber gun homicides by a ratio of 4:1. In contrast, firearm suicide attempts result in death in approximately 85% of cases.

Kellermann AL and Waeckerle JF. Preventing Firearm Injuries. Ann Emerg Med July 1998; 32:77-79.

16,000 accidental gunshot wounds. 50,000 intentionally inflicted wounds.

And there’s no statistics on how many times a firearm goes off accidentally and doesn’t actually hit somebody.
I shot a bullet
into the air
it fell to earth
I know not where.

So, WHO, exactly, within that circle, isn’t threatened when the Hate-Filled TeaBags are there with their guns?

But it’s “paranoid and delusional” to think in those terms according to one of our frequent detractors.

One of the divisions of their Hatred Corporation is called the “Minutemen” and are as the name implies, always ready to start discharging their firearms at a moment’s notice. They’ve also pushed their way into getting a state law passed in a Neighboring Arizona state that will Arizona remain nameless Arizona, which effectively makes it illegal to be non-Anglo or non-white, and boast publicly that they have an angle on 11 other states for similar statutes. Including Colorado.

They’ve also demonstrated their casual disregard for human lives, even those of American Citizens, have committed several murders the most noted one being a nine-year-old girl in Arizona. Far from censuring or attempting to disband these Rogue Racists as the threat to public safety that they actually are, the police in Colorado and Arizona and Texas actually encourage them.

That’s far from harmless, and it’s not Paranoid or Delusional to point out that they’re not harmless.

Illinois legislators urge National Guard to patrol Chicago, Constitution says no

Things you learn while cleaning out your spam folder. Get bigger breasts. Get a bigger penis, get a scholarship to the Police Academy. (???) cash in on your GI bill, join the Army, get compensation from the Nigerian Government for being a victim of a Nigerian scam, just give them all your identification and a valid bank account they can Clean out errr.. transfer the funds to… Classic Viagra, not just regular Viagra, no SIR! It’s CLASSIC and of course goes well with whatever dope makes your breasts bigger. AND… The Chicago Police have been offered from two Illinois Legislators assistance in the form of National Guard troops. OK so that was on the way to the mail folder on Yahoo. But the story is legit.

Now, neither the Chicago Police nor the Illinois National Guard are especially warm to the idea.

Mostly because it’s a really stupid idea and sounds a whole lot like political grandstanding..

The Klan often make such offers. Just not to the South Side of Chicago (the baddest part of town and if you go down there you better just beware of a man name of Leroy Brown..) because they themselves knew better and though they’re given to grandstanding stunts they ain’t that crazy.

Don’t get me wrong, they ARE nut-jobs, just even insanity has an upward limit.

One thing the Chicago Superintendent of Police said rings a huge bell, honks a big horn and in general makes a grab for your attention.

The police, says the Super, have to function within the Constitution of the United States and have to recognize human rights, like to a fair trial and actual proof of guilt before arresting somebody. Or at least after arresting somebody.

America is not a “white” nation

Well now… an apparently Southern person wrote in response to an article about the Tea-Baggers and Other Klan Affiliates espousing Hate Crimes against black American PEOPLE, under the banners of the Failed Confederate States, that “you are an Idiot” and saying something about the “palling around with terrorists” badly disproved Tea Party Rhetoric. And then saying that the Southern States will secede along with Alaska. And of course all Southerners are going to agree to this, Right? Allow me to remind you of a few things…

The South has changed quite a bit since you Racist Retards decided you were going to take your toys and leave, miffed because a Yankee from Illinois of Mixed Race (what, you didn’t hear that part in Texas History? Abraham Lincoln was from an ethnic group called Malargeons, and was often said to be Negro. Of course, in Modern Southern classrooms the Lies from the Last Secession movement about States Rights are more prevalent than saying it was about race) was Elected President and was going to attempt a major bit of Reform which put Human Rights above property “rights” in the case of the “right” to keep Human Beings as property. The secessionists won’t have the votes to do it. Same reason they didn’t have the votes to stop America from electing Barack Obama to be President. America isn’t a “white” nation and neither are any of the states.

What would you do, Secessionists, to force the Black and Hispanic AMERICANS in “your” states to either join you in secession or get out?

Would you get the White Sheets out of grandpa’s closet and ride out lynching anybody who didn’t go along with the idea? That’s what the Confederacy did the first time, and the only reason they could get it to work TEMPORARILY was the fact that the blacks were held in slavery and deliberately kept ignorant, not allowed to learn to so much as read on pain of beatings and death. They were also kept unarmed. Do you seriously believe that you’ll be able to peddle that same kind of shit today? Take all the Tea-Baggers in Texas and descend on ONE Black American enclave, maybe Polytechnic Heights or Stop Six in Ft Worth, maybe South Oak Cliff in Dallas or 5th Ward in Houston. Or the equally hated-by-the-Tea-Party-and-other-Klan-groups Hispanics, the ones who your Stupid Loudmouth Leaders Beck and Limbaugh were confidently predicting would vote against Barack Obama because the Fox News Retards calculated them to be every bit as stupidly racist as the Tea-Baggers. Go to Segundo Barrio in El Paso with that shit.

Tell them you’re taking over completely in Texas. See how long you would last. Try the same thing in Birmingham Alabama, see how far you get with that.

See, in order for your “we’re going to take all our toys and go home” snivelly little Tantrum to work, you would have to have unanimous support. You won’t get it.

Just like you didn’t “get” the idea that 70 MILLION Americans voted against your Racist “white is right” Platform in the last election.

Maybe you were counting on the Ignorance Factor, well, even with the deliberate sabotage of Public Schools in Texas and the rest of America ever since there WAS such an animal as Public Education, people aren’t as stupid and racist as you hoped in the last election, where once again I have to remind you 70 MILLION Americans rejected your Racist Platform. The Commonwealth of Virginia rejected your Racist Platform.

But you believe that somehow you’re going to unite all the people of the South and do it under the Confederate Hate Flag?

Sir or Madame, YOU truly are an idiot.

NOLA Ku Klux Koverup.

“A culture of deception and secrecy” sounds so very much like the Klan. Except for a couple of crucial divergences, The Klan has defectors at a rate that’s an order of Magnitude above the percentage of Cops who’ll actually testify against their fellow Pigs
And they wonder why their Fellow “Heroes” get killed and assaulted so often
Could it be that somebody who has fallen afoul of their Ku Klux Kulture knows damned well that he’ll never get a REAL legitimate hearing in a court where the Cops, the Judge, the Prosecutor and if he’s not Rich the Public Defen Pretender belong to the same Old Boy Clique and the “guilty until proven Innocent or a sufficient bribe is paid” rule is in full force?

That such a person might not be so weak that being tortured and imprisoned and chained and beaten and threatened would be sufficient to make him “respect” the PIGS, and that he might acquire a firearm and just blow some pigs face through the back of his piggy little skull?

Maybe it isn’t what the cops deserve, after all, their victims, at least the one trying, convicting and sentencing them in the street isn’t actually dead, so it’s not exactly “eye for an eye”.

Perhaps, you know, being smacked in the face with a club while you’re handcuffed and called “crazy” for objecting to such treatment at the hands of some Truly Sub-Human Uniformed Retards would tend to make one disregard such niceties.

It might not be what the cops deserve, per se… but it is exactly the kind of “justice” they themselves dish out.
