White mass shooters are not terrorists. They present no pretext for retaliation. Remember, the Global War On Terror?

Stephen Paddock sniper nest in Mandalay Bay Hotel Las Vegas
Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock is not a terrorist. That’s not because you or anyone is a racist for thinking only darker-skinned Jihadists are terrorists. “Terrorism” is a bureaucratic contrivance, as in, The Global War On Terror. It means nothing, but apparently provides legal justification to enforce American global hegemony with military strikes on “supporters of terror”. Of course it doesn’t. It’s artifice. Naturally the public wants to see the charge of terrorism applied equitably to all mass murderers who terrorize the public. Like they want to see police brutality applied liberally to white crime suspects not just black. Like they want to see children charged as adults when the media is fomenting their anger.

Terrorism is a semantic contrivance. It’s how we denounce US adversaries and their desperate means to counter our asymetric military superiority. Our bombs don’t terrorize, their hand delivered bombs do. The Nazis accused resistance fighters of being terrorists.

“Hate Speech” is another contrivance. Priests used to be allowed to burn parishoners for it, priests called it blasphemy. Secular indignants avoid calling it heresy. The Enlightenment was supposed to mark the west’s transcendance of the fear of heretics. Hate Speech is how Americans dismiss unsavory opinion. Fortunately the courts have struck down hate speech laws for what they always were, violations of the First Amendment, but the concept is still a litmus test by which the public wants to pin the ears of irritating speakers.

Likewise the term “genocide”. THAT’S a crime only other nations commit. And only when retaliation suits our agenda. After Rwanda, the UN contrived that charges of genocide mandate international action. As a result, genocide doesn’t mean genocide unless somebody wants to invade. Oil interests are currently eyeing Burma.

Terrorism, hate speech, and genocide are real things, but they are real offenses of which our government is far more culpable than you, or the random deviant individual white male mass shooter.

Does it matter then, if individuals are accused of terrorism when the state is not? I’ll offer you two examples of other contrivances. Conspiracy and racketeering. Both are heavily trafficked by our corporations and government, but easily applied to people whose enterprise authorites want to deem criminal. I just witnessed the trial of two legal reform activists, charged and convicted of both counts. When the law applies to you and not to those enforcing the law, it’s time to stop cheerleading for the prosecution.

Stephen Paddock terrorized, but who do you really fear now that he’s dead –another random white man with too many guns? I’ll wager you’re afraid of the too many guns, their too wide availability, or the purveyors, who keep assault rifles legal in the US to obfuscate the mass manufacture of guns for international arms trafficking. The weapons industry terrorizes.

Judged by intent, the common wife beater is a terrorist. No question, but see? The distinction is unhelpful. How about we call Stephen Paddock a SNIPER. He was that. The Route 91 concert venue was his paramilitary free-fire zone. Paddock may now hold the world record for most American citizens sniped, but his feat pales as uniformed North American white male snipers go.

US Global War On Terror finally drops pretense of not being war on Islam

We’re AT WAR WITH THE ISLAMIC STATE! ISIS being not merely al-Qaeda in Iraq or Mesopotamia or the Levant, depending on who’s spinning your translation, but terrorists bent on establishing an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria! Someone is going to get an advertising award for the ISIS brand, though it sounds like an episode of Ad Men pitching a concept for Get Smart. What exactly is the West’s objection to an Islamic Califate? We already support the Jewish califate of Israel which has a regular record of far greater atrocities. If Americans are upset by the beheading videos attributed to ISIS it’s because ally Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow its frequent and similarly executed spectacles to be broadcast publically. Well, at least President Obama has abandoned the irrationality of a Global War on Terror, in favor of calling what critics have always known it to be, a War on Islam. When we’re finally candid we can admit we are defending Western imperialism from the forces who oppose usury, exploitation and slavery.

US Global War Of Terror destabilization operation opens the ball in Venezuela


To “open the ball” is a dance expression the US cavalry borrowed to describe the initiation of a military engagement. Against Native American prey this usually meant to wake the village by firing into the teepees. The US has long been covertly trying to destabilize Venezuela, but recent developments indicate they’re escalating “opposition protests” to Syrian proportions. Tunisia and Egypt may have been more spontaneous than the US-coordinated “Color Revolutions” along the former Soviet Bloc and in Iran, but the rollout of Arab Spring into Libya and Syra was entirely US-EU covert ops. With renewed “populist” uprisings cementing the encirclement of Russia, the US has detonated unrest in South America, determined to push the Venezuelan government to extremes. Next the UN will decide someone has exceded the bounds of human rights violations, ignoring of course the real Goliaths of that game.

War memorial to Global War On Terror, aka War on Islam For World Resources now logging “Horn of Africa” casualties

By now you’ve read elsewhere that many of the wounded soldiers being medivac’d to the US surgery hub in Germany are coming from parts unknown more specifically not-known to be US-declared war zones. Their flight origin is only revealed as “Horn of Africa”, but it’s telling isn’t it? US disrespect for foreign sovereignty means not even uttering the nation states involved. USG spokesmen know, for the geographically challenged, calling it the Horn can obfuscate the spheres of disputed influence stretching from Somalia, for you Blackhawk Downers, to Mali, where three US special ops were recently killed with their prostitute attaches, while the corporate media breathed a collective “huh?” Thankfully US adversaries in Mali had the better sense not to string the American bodies from bridges like pre-Falluja’d Fallujah, or did they? NATO’s media cameras weren’t there to exploit it in any case. Basically the Horn is where US AFRICOM has yet to beat back the continent’s last Islamic protectors as the Western serial rape of Africa drops its pretense that strangulation isn’t the final act.

You get your weather forecast at the grocery store DUH!

My Grandpa, 27 year veteran of the Army, was also a staunch Democrat mostly because of Roosevelt and his emergency actions to stop the Depression from destroying America. As bad as it was, it could have gone worse. I know a lot of our (ahem)”conservative” readers, those who drew the assignment of trolling the weblog today, are screaming at their monitors right now just from that. Now, don’t y’all worry none, boys, you’ll get more to holler about presently.
He was in the Civilian Conservation Corps, the ones who at public expense did the necessary work to keep the Heartland from turning into a desert, and cleaned up other little “mistakes” visited on the ecosystem by Mechanized American Mercantilism. That’s my nouveau mot du jour.
Grandpa was assigned on a dairy farm. With a bunch of others, one of whom was from some city and had apparently never become acquainted with farm life. And who complained about caring for, cleaning and milking the cows. Since cattle lay belly down to sleep at night, often in their own feces, you can’t just lead Bossy to the barn, slap a bucket under her and starting pulling teats. Hell to the No Sir.
You have to wash those teats first, especially in a setup with a milking machine.
Ol’ boy was understandably not very happy with that. Wished the cows gone in fact. Grandpa asked him “what would you do for milk then?” and he said “Why, I’d just go to the store and buy it.” Enter NOAA and the National Weather Service. Both of them proposed to be cut by the “conservatives”.

No, seriously. It’s been echoed up and down the Right Wing Talking points by now so I’m not sure which one exactly said it first. Bachmann perhaps Who represents a Dairy district by the way.

But they’re searching for things that cumulatively wouldn’t cut a tenth of the deficit, because they’re not going to dare breathe the Subsidies to The Rich in the form of the Police and Military State.

A “Sacred Cow” as it were. Which is a misnomer as is “scapegoat” as used in the vernacular “they made him the scapegoat”.
Let’s roll with those a few moments

For instance, the Wealthy “scapegoat” food stamps and public housing and point to privately subsidized enterprises like Soup Kitchens and the Salvation Army. Cut a check to the mission every other month, so they think, Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am nobody goes hungry.
Ummmm… not so… Aside from the Privatize Everything mentality causing most of the problems in the economy today, the very little spent on soup kitchens and missions doesn’t even go to a red hot two percent of the people who need help just to Not Freakin’ Starve In The Streets.

Then there’s the National Weather Service. The Lunatic Fringe want to cut it because, “people would just get their weather from weather.com or Weatherbug”….

Uhhhh…. not only didn’t your cheeseburger and fries not magically appear at your McFatFood restaurant, there were many middlemen such as, oh, let’s see, the Earth used to grow the potatoes and the grains and other grasses the cattle ate, and so forth…

Weatherbug and weather.com and your Corporate Media weather forecasts all came from THE NATIONAL OCEANIC and ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION and distributed, free of charge actually, by the NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, The satellites used to monitor the weather, the weather stations across the globe, the people who told you about global warming… (and you stupid bastards really hate that part, don’t you?) all of them including NASA, originally set in place so that your Giant Shipping Industries and the Military who “acquire” your supply contracts from, shall we say “unwilling” business partners like say, every country in the world who are forced into selling the goods and services of their nations at a price YOU dictate… could have accurate weather and other information necessary for your Corporate Dictatorship to function.

Just another way for Wall Street to get their money for free at public expense.

Buy our elephant repellent, write us a blank check…

There’s an old joke about an “Elephant Repellent” that’s guaranteed to keep elephants away from you.
When it’s noted that there’s not an elephant for hundreds of miles around, the punch line, from the person who has already taken the money, “See how well it works?”
So, this weekend the Homeland Insecurity Thieves conned many Americans, bigger than shit. Told us there was “credible evidence” Friday morning of three recent travellers from the Middle East who were supposed to make car bombs and make them go BOOM and kill up a whole buncha people and we have to be diligent and keep looking for these guys even though there’s no picture, no names, just “beware of Arabic looking fellows” and other racist crap. We’re supposed to profile every dark skinned individual, look at every dark person as a potential murderer. What are we supposed to do, dial 9 1 1 every time a Negro enters the general area?
I mean, it sure sounds like that’s the general “non-racist” intent, right?
But anybody who notices that the threatened by unknown, un-named anonymous Terrorists and tipped off by an anonymous snitch… man, that’s mighty convenient ain’t it? And the threat never was carried out, my what a surprise… but the High Paid Liars at Homeland Security get to say “See? we prevented a terror attack and did it so well that you don’t have to know any of the details, not even how much we got paid to skin you gullible bastards outta your bread errr ‘protect you’, yeah, that’s the ticket”.
It’s called “selling a Hog”, people. It’s one of the oldest confidence games there is.
The government is taxing us to build super-secret Magic Invisible Shields to keep out the giant fire-breathing mutant flying earthworms.
You say you’ve never seen any of those giant fire breathing mutant flying earthworms? See how well it worked… now pay up….

They hanged Pinocchio and let Gepetto walk… 12/30/2006

As is so often true in death penalty cases. From 1979 til 1991 he was propped up by mostly the Reagan Regime as a counter to the Iranian revolution. Who are also the chief “witnesses” against him in the matter of killing a few thousand Iraqi citizens. With their active involvement. Their active PAID involvement, because they a) don’t work cheap and b) don’t actually work. “They” being a cast of villains like Reagan, Bush the Elder, Ollie North, the Miami Cuban Cartel, Richard Secord, Donald Rumsfeld, Admiral Poindexter, traitors and murderers all. Selling stolen arms for stolen money and getting Americans killed in the process, like the Marines in Beirut. (Lt Col North, three words, Ollie… Semper… Fi… Bitch)
They got several times as many people killed by their Other Puppets, like the Salvadoran death squads, the Contras, the Medellin Cartel, to bring more people into Capitalist Slavery in the name of “Freedom”.
And they’re still sending their brainless minions to kill for their own profit.
Any of y’all soldiers assigned to read our blog, dudes, get smart and desert. Split, boogie, depart, sortez… Get Out Of The Slaughter Machine. Your Military is owned by the same Rich Bitches who owned Saddam’s Army and financed al Qa’eda. They don’t give a rat’s ass about your lives any more than they did the 2800 they had killed on 9/11 or the 300 Marines they had murdered in Beirut or the uncounted thousands of Nicaraguan priests, nuns, nurses, doctors, teachers, orphan children and other civilians they “liberated” with American-bought bullets to the heads.

They won’t give any more of a damn about your lives than the lives of the Iraqi and Afghan civilians they had you murder. If it comes down to a choice of them facing the hangman themselves or scapegoating you the way they did their Other Puppets, you’ll be stretching the rope.

It’s just the way the coward bitches do business. Ollie North has been rewarded for his selling out “his fellow” Marines by being paid several million dollars a year to LIE for his whoremasters, on a Fox News show. Gunny Bob Newman has a similar Whore deal for much less money on Hate Talk Radio. If either of them were to actually, for the first time in their sorry worthless misspent lives, MAN THE HELL UP AND TELL THE GOD-DAMN TRUTH, they would be sold out the way their Masters sold out Manny Noriega, Saddam Hussein, Osama, the top level financiers of the Medellin Cartel…

Betraying your countrymen and your oaths is Okey Dokey with them, but betraying the Whoremasters isn’t permitted.

“as long as it keeps us safe”

Today the big story is that it’s September 9th. Whoop di diddly doo.
Also, there was an alert which caused Washing Tundy Sea and New Dork to be, how shall I say it, under no-rights martial law. And they got at least one FumDuck to say “I don’t mind as long as it keeps people safe”. The tip on which they were operating has still so far yielded no identification of the three terrorists who are allegedly right now allegedly stalking the streets of America waiting to blow people up. This sounds like a case of “If we can’t get a REAL terror threat, we’ll invent one and hope enough Americans are too stupid to catch on.”
While a real threat manifested itself, the Terrorist Hunt over the past decade has bankrupted America chasing shadows and allowed the infrastructure to rot and Corporations to poison, break down and just basically destroy America in the pursuit of their god the Dollar Bill. They even call it “The Almighty”. To the point that a simple error blacked out San Diego and a few other choice locations for 12 hours.
So, where are all these Right Wing FumDucks standing on the issue of Government Measures Which Actually Protected America? Like OSHA and the EPA and maintaining safe roads, waterways and levees?
Oh, yeah, “Nanny State” and they shall have exactly none of it.
Wonder if the Moron who told the NBC News reporter that “as long as it keeps people safe” can be persuaded to say how he feels about that?
Something on the lines of “Well, the Nanny State protections didn’t prevent the Massey Energy mine explosion or the BP disaster from killing workers, now did it? Proof that it doesn’t work!” which is the standard Right Wing Rant. Never mind that their party has steadily sabotaged worker and environmental protections for 3 decades. Hey, where’s all those good paying jobs that Deregulation was supposed to bring us?

Probably jammed up Ronald Reagans dead rotted arse with the rest of his stupid shit.
The “Texas Miracle” was mostly from new FEDERAL jobs in Texas and the rest, well… Jobs that are temporary, pay minimum wage and are so unsafe that 5 construction workers die each week in Texas in preventable accidents. Thank you deregulation Anti-Nanny State activist Freaks.

They’re still pressing forward with building new McMansions in a town where about 10 percent of the available real estate is VACANT, building them on top of a Toxic Waste Dump. That’s right across three roads and a creek from me. al Qa’eda doesn’t have to dump poison into America’s water, the Corporate Masters do it by the hundreds of tons every day.

But, hey, as long as it “keeps us safe”.
Moron.

Homeland Insecurity Budget Report: My prediction: More Government Terrorism

Homeland Security and their associates such as the Military, Police and privateers like Blackwater Xe are the REAL Terrorists, who have robbed America blind and then stole the seeing-eye dog.
Using in typical extortionist manner, threats from Other Gangs to shake us down, “You don’t pay us the protection racket money, we won’t be able to keep the Others from shaking you down”.
It’s called “selling a hog”.
They’ll say we’re “safer” from foreign attack but need more money to be poured down their insatiable gullets in order to “stay ahead of” people who as described in other Might-Makes-Right Wing propaganda are so “inferior” that they couldn’t possibly be a threat.
They’ll try to insert racist fears, more profiling of darker skinned people with funny names.
And of course dismiss any accusations of “racism” as being paranoid.
Crazy, in other words. Anglo Terrorists like the Minutemen and Tea Party “patriots” have killed more Americans than Spanish, Black, Indians, Muslims, Arabs… Not just with their Direct Actions where they gun down “liberals” or “mixcans” like they did in Arizona, Tennessee, other places…
But with indirect murders such as slashing all safety and environmental regulations, at the request of their Billionaire Masters, poisoning our water and air and ground, pharmaceutical Corporations demanding more regulation on native herbal treatments, the medicine of choice for the poorest of the poor, and less regulation for their Murder Conglomerates. Less subsidies of REAL health care and more subsidies for drugs like Zyprexa, which has been known, and acknowledged by Eli Lilly, the company which puts the shit out, to kill people… for over a decade. And they still push it.
Poisoning our food with re-writing legislation that now punishes organic farming and ranching practices and favors, once again, Billionaires who collectively own Trillions of dollars worth of toxic farms.
Shooting laborers who demand a fair price for OUR product, our labor. It’s been on-and-off IN THE U.S. but spending Homeland Security resources to enable a consistent war against labor in Puppet Dictatorships like El Salvador, Colombia, Guatemala, Panama, Costa Rica, Iraq,

Then having to spend even more money to keep the relatives and friends of the Murdered And Tortured Ones from exacting revenge on the Corporate BigPigs.

The lying bastards will say it’s money well spent, but they’ll need to keep spending it, and increase the spending.

Spank a Vet with a warm fuzzy Attaboy

For those who think that the Peace people dishonor the veterans, think a bit on what the most prominent campaigns has to offer in the way of humiliation. One of the “new and improved” corporate motivational methods is called “peer recognition” because research showed that workers don’t want to actually be, you know, adequately paid for our labor which enriches our bosses and impoverishes us. No, we want the empowerment of “recognition” for our good deeds. Say (and this happens far too often to be hypothetical) you have an innovation that saves your company many times your annual salary. What does the boss do to reward you?
 
First he patents your innovation and declares it corporate intellectual property, then gives you an award ceremony where he more or less pats your head and tells you “Attaboy!” which those English speakers who own dogs might recognize. There’s even an award letter, usually hand-written by your supervisor, saying “Attaboy!” and sometimes a Warm Fuzzy, which is a recognition pin that looks kind of like a piece of pocket lint or a dust-bunny from under a desk. How special, right? Your peers get to recognize that your contribution made the boss wealthier and as a reward you get treated like a dog in front of God and everybody. In the Military, the ultimate enforcement arm of the Corporate Empire, you get something called a “medal” or a “service ribbon” and there’s even a medal for not getting arrested for a year. Seriously.

This type of manipulative behavior is as old as the idea of organized military. A pay and benefits raise would be a lot more meaningful than a piece of brass or maybe silver with a recycling value of maybe a buck. But gosh darn it, that would be Too Expensive. So the Corporates, the sole beneficiaries of Military Action, get to go even further with the “Thank A Vet” campaign, they get their publicly subsidized (corporate welfare) non-employees to do a really dangerous job, people who are being robbed of THEIR essential rights and freedoms in the name of making Americans (or at least their corporate owners) Free (to take all the resources of the subjugated nations and kill anybody who resists) tend to fight back. Throw airplanes at “our” buildings and such.

Add in that the equipment the military uses, at great public expense and huge private profits to the Corporates, is usually dangerous in itself. Take Depleted Uranium, (please) which makes a steel shell more massive in less space. Those of you who understand ballistics would appreciate that and those who don’t, study it. It’s simple Newtonian physics. With a titanium tip and an explosive charge it can go through any armor. “Terror” groups who are targeted by, say, American or British tanks realize this and if they can obtain an intact round (one that didn’t get smashed or exploded) will re-load it and send it back. The uranium, the heaviest naturally occurring element, has value especially in small pieces to be used in a “dirty bomb”. (The Corporates, natural born and then trained Terrorists themselves, unleash “dirty bombs” on Americans every damn day, witness the Toxic Waste Dump “Gold Hill Mesa” being sold as median priced McMansion real estate right here on the West Side of Colorado Springs.)

It’s also poisonous in the same way that mercury, lead and white arsenic are poisonous. A whole list of metals heavier than iron in fact.

Instead of paying the soldiers who contracted DU poisoning in the past few wars, the Publicly Funded enforcement arm of the Corporates, the Pentagon, denounced them as frauds, malingerers and punished them.

Thanks, Vet!

The same with Agent Orange. The Army investigators and lawyers (in Colorado that’s pronounced “liars”, true story) said something really scary about that, and it’s scary because it’s true. “The Military uses a vast array of chemicals to maintain the ‘safety’ of the bases” and coupled that with the truly chilling “there’s no significant difference between those exposed to Agent Orange and those soldiers who were not, in relation to cancers.”

True. Agent Orange is a weed killer, on base they can’t afford to have high brush, grass, weeds and trees. So they poison them. They also can’t have animals wandering around, snakes, the rodents on which the snakes feed, skunks, foxes, cats, dogs, or the local equivalents Bugs too. And of course birds. A bird being hit by an aircraft can seriously ruin the day for the pilot. And cost the Corporate Overlords a pretty penny for each (not really, the Corporates who gain the most from Military Action pay the least taxes, it’s the Taxpayers who pay).

And that parenthetical statement says a lot…

See, the “Thank A Vet” campaign, much lauded as Corporate Generosity, there’s a reason Corporate gift-giving is so well documented.

Because they don’t actually “give” the money or services. They deduct them from their taxes. Then do like they did in August and whine, snivel and wring their hands over the Deficit.

The “Thank A Vet” program, the “You are not forgotten” POW flags that line the pockets of Ross Perot and his butt-buddies like John McCain, publicly funded, most of them double-dipped public funds because they’re sold to municipalities. Can you think of a single government building that isn’t flying one of those retarded flags? And it’s based on a lie too, the Hanoi government turned over all the prisoners of war they were holding back in 1975. Notwithstanding all the Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Jean-Claud van Damm, Sylvester Stallone and other non-veterans-who-portray-soldiers-in-the-proud-tradition-of-Ronald Reagan-George Bush-and-John Wayne making a lot of money providing the propaganda that sells the flags.

Speaking of “double dipping” and George Bush, as in Bush the Elder, when he attained the presidency he ended “double dipping” meaning getting both CHAMPUS and Medicare benefits. Way to Thank A Vet, George!
My grandfather who had recently passed away had told me that I should have stayed in for the full twenty years because the Military would take good care of me in my old age. Yeah, right.

His widow, my Grandma, died penniless in a nursing home, her Social Security and Medicare benefits signed over to the home. Way To Thank A Vet, Reaganite Sucks!

The current wrangling over whether or not the Workers who EARNED the benefits of Social Security, SSI, Medicaid, etc… should actually receive them, with the theme that only the Rich deserve or even need to have leisure, discretionary income, health care, all the goodies that separate the industrialized world from the Third World… and the rest of us only need a warm fuzzy Attaboy!

George Bush the Chimpleton, by the way, actually went one step further in demeaning the people we’re supposed to pat on the head and tell them “Good Boy! Who’s a good boy? You’re a good boy, yes you are!”

He actually rubbed the head of a double amputee veteran in a photo-opportunity propaganda session at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

The veteran was a Black man as well, the racist connotations of rubbing the head of a black person are well known, but it’s so God-damn Plantation Ignorant that even people in TEXAS don’t do it.

Keep your thanks, I’d rather have the money due me. I didn’t stay in the military long enough to get anything but a free grave when I die, but my very poorly paid service to the Corporations in the private “workforce” (they don’t even call us Human Resources anymore, how’s that for recognition?) wherein they tore my right foot half off while taking 5 times what they paid me, that in itself earns entitlements Due Wages. Just, you know, I realize I ain’t going to be paid.

Soylent Green is PEOPLE!

No evidence to hold Sabar Lal Melma in Guantanamo, but enough to kill him?

Image of Melma undarkened and flipped to shed menacing demeanorHard to imagine we’d come to look at Guantanamo as a lesser evil. Gitmo held terror suspects without charges, indefinitely, secretly, and tortured them, to death sometimes. At least they and their families back home were safe from the pretext of a drone strike or special ops night raid. The targeted assassination of released 5-year Guantanamo alumn ISN 801 Sabar Lal Melma in Afghanistan raises the question: what constitutes enough cause to send a death squad after a suspected illegal combatant? The US didn’t have the evidence to bring charges against Melma, who was finally released in 2007 after an outpouring of Afghan voices vouched for his innocence, yet the US military retained suspicion enough to send NATO commandos into his home this weekend to execute the former detainee in front of his kids. It would seem if Obama has a problem with Guantanamo, it’s that illegal rendition and imprisonment is not extrajudicial enough.

George Bush trusted and funded the Pakistan Military…

Even though they killed far more citizens of Pakistan than all resistance groups combined even if you count in the Chair Force Office Warriors with their drone strikes as Insurgent actions rather than Propping up the Pakistani Puppet.
So, little recent (like, this morning) revelations that the compound taken out by the Navy SEALs was on a Pakistan Military Base, one thought being that our relationship with their Army should be re-evaluated.
How honest and in depth is that revelation going to be? The Chimpleton and his not-as-stupid father had lots of contracts in oil-field construction and maintenance given to the bin Laden family, administered no doubt by Halliburton KBR. Their tame puppet military was given carte blanche to slaughter “their own” people, much like Saddam Hussein was given a similar license until his oil franchise invaded the Corporate Domain of another U.S. owned “sovereign” Puppet Dictator. The way the U.S. Army was given Carte Blanche to take out “their own people” if they happened to wear dark skin and have Native Tribal affiliations.
The compound was described a few times as being a multi-million dollar affair. That would be big money anywhere, but in a country known for (American) Corporate Wage Slavery more so.
That leads to a “what if” situation and it not only reflects bad on the current administration, but all the way back to Reagan. And in particular the Father and Son Bushwacker team. And Generally Betrays-us who was just anointed Feudal Warlord of the CIA.

Are we to believe that “fiscal conservatives” who would bean count Americans out of our very existence, saying that Health Care, pensions and even the obscenely low Minimum Wage are far too expensive for “us” to maintain, would somehow miss a multimillion dollar compound built basically on THEIR private stomping grounds and guarded (only) by The Pakistani Army…

Is Generally Betrays-us now poised to sell out his Pakistani connections so they don’t snitch him off? Like other operations against (former) Puppet Dictators like Manuel Noriega and Saddam Hussein…

Were he and the rest of the Pentagon crew blowing smoke, as they usually do, lying about maybe, you know, KNOWING where the body or the living person of Usama bin Laden was all this time, because they were paying his rent and his security guards to keep him there until it was convenient to ‘have him killed”?

Did the Navy, who unleashed the SEALs to do the murder, know for the past 8 years where their Dehumanized “target” was? And were content to have so many of “their own” privately owned, publicly funded Seamen and Marines slaughtered to keep up the pretense?

The first and most important piece of evidence is “did the suspect have a motive?”
Yes, they did. They announced beforehand that they wanted this war in order to maintain American (and British, until they could figure a way to screw the British Mob) Corporate Mafia in complete power over the entire economy of the world. Not just oil but they made the blatant point that Oil reserves being privatized rather than owned by sovereign nations was essential to that goal.
Motive: Check

Means: Oh yeah. They had a blank check. Check

Alibi: Hell no. Check

But what about that long-standing “We’re always the good guys, our Military Officers would never sell out the soldiers under their command like that, nor the American Civilians” bullshit?

A history of being Morally above such actions: HELL NO! Check

Should I bother to sneer at their alleged Humane Treatment of the Conque errr Liberated peoples in all “our” wars…. what do you think? Check

Lucy, you got some ‘splainin to do….

Right Wing “lone wolf” murderers

Their Whoremasters like Sarah Palin and the rest of the DumFox crew still refuse to admit that they urge people to KILL (they have to have other people do it because they’re too frightened to murder people themselves). Usually it’s male wannabee hitmen like Jared Loughner, Jim Adkisson, von Brunn, Scott Roeder, Tim McVeigh, Terry Nichols, Erik Rudolf, Local Retard Gary Faulkner and the occasional physically female like Babykiller Shawna Forde, and they have a few other things in common.
They’re usually part of local cults, not exactly “lone wolf” like the Right Wing Hate Media claim. They usually go after people they consider weaklings. And they perceive their Fox News Whoremasters to be speaking literally when they rant and rave and foam at the mouth about a “War” against any form of Non-Fox Thought. Like Sarah Palin urging her demented Disciple Jared Loughner to murder 6 people in Tucson. Lou Dobbs urging Shawna Forde and her crew to Murder (yet another) nine year old American Child. If Gary Faulkner had succeeded in killing some Pakistan citizens, most likely including children, in his Rambo-inspired fantasy quest to take out the ALREADY DEAD Osama bin Laden, who among the Hate-Mongers would take the credit for sending yet another Hate-Filled Wannabee Holy Warrior/Crusader to MURDER HUMAN BEINGS for their political agenda?
The Freakin’ Bureau of Incompetence practically admitted that bin Laden is dead. They published a “wanted poster” that had Somebody Else As The Picture and said as their excuse that nobody has any verified pictures of Osama bin Laden since 2002. So how would the dumbass even know if the Fellow Child Of God who he would end up murdering was actually bin Laden?

There’s a growing consensus, just not among the Right Wing Hate Media, and their really Stupid Cult, that Osama bin Laden is largely a creation of the Warmongers, a boogyman set up to draw heat away from the real players.
And that he isn’t alive today. According to his “profile” and the Hate-Wing Media sure does love them some profilin’, say there should be MORE profiling, usually on Racial lines… (but they’re not racists at least according to themselves) he’s a glory hound. A narcissist. (like the dumbshits the DumFox crew turns loose on Usually American Targets) who thrives on media attention, playing center stage, a ham, always wanting the spotlight. He would play Juliet if he couldn’t get the role of Romeo, just to guarantee the star credits.
Somebody who wouldn’t go nine years without having his picture taken and published and verified.

That doesn’t prove the theory that he was an actor hired by the War Industry to provoke a war which is paying them very handsomely.
It goes a long way toward debunking the purism and dogma that passes for “information” from the so-called authorities. “Thou Shalt Not Question Fox News, for they are Holier than thou”
Speaking of “Dog”ma, and socially retarded trailer trash, “Dog” the Bounty Hunter said last summer that he could deliver Osama bin Laden within 6 weeks.
Wouldn’t HIS Whoremasters actually want him to deliver on such a project? Or would it be too high profile a guaranteed failure for them?

Corporate personhood: unintended consequences

  • yes/no: are corporations persons?
    Are Corporations composed of shareholders?
    Do Corporations act on behalf and with the explicit consent of the shareholders?
    Has the corporation, with said consent, used any consideration of value including the intellectual property of the corporate officers or of salaried employees or contractors ever made statements supporting the Death Penalty or joined as paying members any organization supporting the Death Penalty?
    Do they accept without question the definitions of Capital crimes including giving false testimony which results in the death of another human being, killing for money, treason?
    Of the shareholders holding a majority of the stocks bonds or other assets of the corporation, do ANY have stocks in Advertising AND firearms corporations AND Data/Software Corporations which publish movies or video games glorifying violence?
    Do any of the corporate Persons advocate the notion that firearms are necessary for self defense?
    Have any of the corporate persons made statements advocating lenience in the cases of persons condemned to death as accessories to capital murder, such as the “getaway driver”?
    Does the corporation support acts of retaliation against the perpetrators of 9/11?
    Does the Corporation support such acts even against nations which were NOT the perpetrators, such as Iraq, Iran, Palestine, Afghanistan?
    Combine the answers with facts such as Advertising for guns, like SUV ads,
  • are directed to people who feel powerless and victimized,
  • that firearms are used by Americans in either accidental or intentional homicides which are NOT self defense many times more than any adjudicated cases of Self Defense,
  • that the violent movies and video games teach that killing is not only acceptable but fun,
  • and NewsCorp and its subsidiaries such as FOX News and the Republican and Tea Parties are guilty of many more capital murders Every Year than the number of victims of the WTC attacks.
  • NATO vows to investigate leaks of their kiddie-porn…

    Actually NATO/ISAF are vowing to investigate reports of civilian deaths, 64 (updated while I was typing earlier) in recent days. NATO, in their TYPICAL LYING MODE, said that their operations killed an unknown number of “insurgents”. You know how the U.S. and NATO turn a civilian into an “insurgent”? THEY POP A BULLET INTO HIS SKULL. AND IF THE “INSURGENT” IS BEING NURSED AT HIS MOMMA’S BREAST THEY GET TWO “INSURGENTS” WITH ONE BABYKILLING BULLET. Does that sound unnecessarily harsh? Hmm? To borrow a trench expression from another long-ago war being fought for the same God-Damned imperial cause, was it “over the top”? Ask yourselves this question, M’kay?
    IF THE LYING BASTARDS DON’T KNOW HOW MANY “INSURGENTS” THEY KILLED, THEN THEY ALSO WOULD NOT KNOW THEIR NAMES, AGES, POLITICAL STATUS OR WHETHER THEY WERE ACTUALLY INSURGENTS, NOW GOD-DAMN WOULD THEY, M’kay?”

    All y’all “Back the Badge, Support the War No Matter What, Big Brother is Always Right especially when they’re WRONG” Morons who just made your legs break when your knees automatically jerked to the Right, while standing to attention, making the stiff arm Bellamy Salute undt mach mit der Sieg Heil,

    I bet you’re saving this picture so you can, late at night, look at it and give yourselves the inspiration you need to spank your tiny little monkeys.
    NATO, true to form, is probably going to pursue all those who reported child deaths and kill them. And then convict them of insurrection later.

    Take four of those Stupid Magnetic Walmart Special $1.93 Instant Patriot Yellow Ribbons and a copy of this picture, and stick them up your SUV.

    “conservative” Pentagon budget includes NASCAR

    No, really, the “Conservative” TeaPotty and Republitards have voted to continue funding sponsorship of NASCAR teams as part of their “Recruitment” budget.
    Yep, get the kids into the Murder Machine any way they can. So-Called conservatives don’t even care about their own kids. Much less anybody elses’ kids.
    Hell, they see a kid and they reach for their AK 47.
    Why do Republican TeaTard Minutemen Klan Militia members Hate American Kids?
    Why do they hate the English language so much that they continue to call their greedy overfed herd of Hogs “conservative” when it’s obvious they conserve absolutely NOTHING?
    Leaving alone “patriotism” and “freedom” and “morality” and “family values” and Christianity.
    Just a bunch of babykillers as far as I can see.
    Why don’t the NASCAR drivers go into the military, seein’ as how they’re so all fired up about going to other countries, taking everything from the people and killing anybody who objects? (especially the kids, them Republicans sho’ does love them some babykilling) Couldn’t possibly be that they’re not healthy enough, they brag all the time about being Professional Athletes. Then again, so does Rush Limbaugh’s equally Chickenshit brother David.

    Guess they’re as skilled at lying as they are at being Gutless Wonders.

    The Memorial Park Grenade and Drugs

    The CS Fuzz Dept isn’t squeaking very loudly about the grenade they found at Prospect Lake a couple of days ago. There’s ways to make a booby trap from a hand grenade, take one and set it down, prop a rock onto it and set the rock on a small stick, so the rock will fall off if the stick is disturbed, lots of ways to make the stick fall out. Test the rig to make sure. assemble it and extract the safety pin then leave, and never go back. That doesn’t seem to be the case with the Lake Grenade. But it’s Apparently a U.S. Army hand grenade of which there are several types, standard enough in triggering style, weight and size of the device, many made by an Israeli based firm called LGB Ltd. The cops would have a database on who supplies them. NOW… Drugs.

    The numbers are numbers of deaths attributed to various causes.,
    Tobacco 435,000,
    Diet/Lifestyle 365,000,
    Alcohol 75,000,
    Accidental exposure to toxins 55,000
    ALL Illicit drugs, direct and indirect 17,000
    Aspirin, Tylenol, Midol, Motrin 7000
    Cannabis 0

    Some results omitted, like prescription drugs. Homicide, Suicide and Gun Related deaths naturally overlap. But there’s Innkeeper laws that hold bartenders responsible if they allow an intoxicated patron to drive away.

    There’s homicide laws that hold the supplier of the drugs responsible if the product causes the death of a user. Charge would be Murder actually. Somebody building a home-made grenade or gun would be charged with various wordings of Making an Infernal Device.

    Manufacturers of small arms, hand grenades, rifles, pistols-Not liable. Tobacco manufacturers-not liable

    Fat Food Restaurants who encourage patrons to eat more calories in one meal than they need in a week, and discourage walk-up or Bicycle up Business (try riding a bicycle in the Drive Thru lane at McToxins, they’ll call the pigs on you, and the Pigs will gladly serve their Corporate Masters) Not Liable. Prescription drug overdoses and accidental mis-dosing and toxicity, Bayer, Baxter, Abbott, Lilly, … not liable.

    The manufacturer of the Prospect Lake Grenade… not liable.

    The corporations who put out the small arms also put out propaganda designed to provoke, incite and prolong wars, mass murder actually, yet they’re not liable.

    Their Propaganda Protectors at (worst offender, there are others) Fox HateSpeech Networks make sure they get to sell their Death Products AND create the market for them, uninterrupted by any silly little old laws like Thou Shalt Not Kill.

    United States religious leaders can incite their followers to wars with impunity, tell their followers that the sixth commandment actually doesn’t include wars or death penalty, Because They Say So and if you question their holy word you’re an antichrist and a blasphemer. They tell their followers that if somebody dies while killing for them, in their Holy Crusade, that person goes immediately to Heaven to enjoy the blessings and adoration of God and all His host.

    Somebody saying a mirror image of that same statement AGAINST the “crusaders” is judged as a terrorist and can be (according to the U.S.A.P.A.T.R.I.O.T.A.C.T. imprisoned for life or murdered based on the whim of a Military “justice” Tribunal or simply the command of the military leaders.

    What wonderful wonderful wonderful leaders we have that they can make such decisions on our behalf and punish us if we don’t agree.

    One law for the Corporate Rich and a regime of strict obedience imposed on everybody else.

    And they call Liberals “elitists”.

    Drone targeting data… is it as flawed as THIS?

    It’s not just in the middle east, it’s what “we” do here too…
    The brutality is endemic to the system, every action of Cop Meets Citizen, here, or abroad, is taken under the assumption that the Citizen is the enemy, and must be subdued, brought under “our” control.
    Whether a citizen in his home or a whole nation.
    This from chat:
    23:58listening to the scanner…
    Pigs are fixin’ to jump into an apartment, armored up…
    23:58The dispatcher said that “last time we had to tase him”.
    23:59 and that nobody in the house likes cops (the CSPD and EP Co Sheriff refer to that as a B.O.L.O “Be On the Look Out”)
    23:59 Imagine that, a gang of uniformed thugs holds somebody down, beating him and torturing him, in front of his family, and they wonder why nobody likes them.
    00:00 Actually they DO know, but they think their guns and gang will keep anybody from doing any retaliation, just like their foreign policy.
    00:01Oderint dum Metuant, let them hate us as long as they fear us.
    00:02Caligula and Nero’s motto.
    00:02
    What wonderful people they worship as heroes!! And they want to export that kind of “freedom” everywhere in the world. Freedom to obey.

    Then they get all weepy and wringing their hands when people fight back.
    Like the famous line from War and Peace:

    “why, they’re shooting at me… ME, who everybody loves!”

    But wait… there’s MORE…
    Here’s an update on that police call…
    something extra special…
    You’re gonna love this.
    The dispatcher was sending in the cavalry, armed and loaded for a massive fight..00:46
    The person they had tasered and had the advisory about…00:46
    was the man in Apartment B.00:47
    And the call they were responding to was in Apartment A.00:47

    Across the complex from each other.
    How many times have similar “oopsies” happened in Afghanistan and Iraq?
    Using similar techniques, technologies and the cops are recruited straight out of the military.
    What kind of odds does that make that Drone Strikes are even targeted at the right addresses, the right towns even?

    What proof or even evidence do we have that the Military Intelligence services, operating in foreign lands where, unlike their “para-civilian” stormtroopers here, they haven’t had the “suspected” terrorists in custody, haven’t interviewed them, and don’t have any experience of having been physically at the address of the people they’re killing?
    Wikileaks has answers, that’s why Wikileaks is under attack from the piggoes.

    In Tennessee, ACLU = Terrorists

    The Memphis Homeland Security fusion center has a map listing the Tennessee ACLU as a “Terrorist Event.” Compound that with what a ranking senator (R-AL) has called the “ACLU DNA.” It goes beyond semantics when the label of terrorist means by executive order suspects can be detained without charges, indefinitely and without an enforceable standard of human rights. Think twice about those giving credence to Vice President Biden’s categorization of Wikileaks as more terrorism than journalism. On the lighter dark side, the CIA has set up a Wikileaks Task Force (WTF), prompting comedian Andy Borowitz to suggest the more apt Stop Terrorists From Uniting (STFU).

    TSA and Pentagoons play same lame blame game

    TSA of course saying that people being angry about their Neo-Gestapo (betcha thought I was gonna say “nazi” huh?) thug tactics would cause delays.
    And not their Thuggish heavy-handed State-Sponsored Terrorism. The people, you see, have no right to resent being treated as criminals with no evidence. Guilty until proven innocent.
    Then blame anybody who acts any way non-docile or non-subservient for the punishment THEY, the Gesta errrr… Noble Defenders of freedom CHOOSE to inflict on other people. There’s a counter-terrorism standard employed and enjoyed by every dictatorship, including the U.S. Military “free” puppet governments, (not just the Nazis, although they’re the ones most famous for it) where they would round up local civilians in areas where a “terrorist” attack had occurred and simply execute some of them, and made sure to tell the survivors to blame it on the actions of the Resistance Fighters.
    That’s the TSA tactic. Also, the Pentagon/State Department Gesta tactic for dealing with Wikileaks. Kill the messenger. Never mind that it’s not the REVELATION of their many murders and miscellaneous misdemeanors, mayhem and malicious malfeasance that’s caused their shared TSA/DoD/DoS/DoJ problems.
    It’s the actual commission of their multiple misdeeds that caused the problem. If they didn’t want the name surely it would have been easier to avoid that by not playing the game.
    The best way to avoid gaining an undesirable reputation as a Babykiller is simply not actually killing babies.

    That way you can point out, hey, no actual dead babies, no babykilling.
    But a bunch of dead babies and other Former Humans chewed to pieces by the weapons of ones Armed Forces is bound to rouse suspicions.

    Pullout from Afghanistan? not for another 3 years..

    BBC had a story “An hour away from Kabul, despair grows as NATO discusses exit…” Meaning, the BBC is required to report that the war is a positive thing for Afghan people so they focus on government officials who got their jobs handed to them by the American and British Conquerors and Occupiers errr “liberators and nation builders” and will, justifiably, have their heads handed to them by people who had friends and family (anybody in Afghanistan) Murdered, raped, imprisoned and tortured by the NATO Occupation forces.
    And the reader/listener is supposed to take pity on these poor, sad, wretched pathetic Traitors who sold their own people to the invaders as a means of gaining Puppet Local Dictator status. Awwwwww…. Shed a fake tear with me, Glenn Beck showed us how, put Vicks Vapo-Rub under your eyes…
    On the other hand, if 3 more years of the Mightiest Empire on earth wouldn’t be enough time to build up a sense of safety in the Karzhai Puppet Regime, how long WOULD it take? Analysts who aren’t in the pay of the Pentagon say there’s no way, and that if the occupation succeeds it could only be by being Permanent.

    Finally, in other news, Oceania has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia.

    Jeep declares war on intellect.

    They’re sponsoring Call of Duty:whateverthehellnumber : BlackOps.
    In the Jeep commercial they show screenshots of a Black Jeep SUV in some tropical location that exists only in the imaginations of the designers of the game, who never got closer to actual war than speeding up as they passed the Army Recruiter’s office on their way to a College Republicans meeting.
    Call of “Duty”? BlackOps is not very discrete code for Murder, Kidnap and Torture, in other words, REAL terrorism funded and backed by a massive military industrial complex. Of which the manufacturers of Jeep are a proud member-group.
    BlackOps is not anybody’s “Duty” it’s a pleasure romp for people who enjoy killing and enjoy torture and enjoy the feeling of helpless victims fearing them. The sick bastards who play the game on their computers in their Moms’ basements and fantasize killing are only slightly less sick than the ones who go out and commit the actual Murders, kidnaps and tortures. Or the political bastards who order the Terroristic BlackOps strikes.
    Games like that destroy your own capacity to think rationally, it’s a downward spiral into being the formerly human equivalent of a mechanical drone. THEY push your launch buttons and aim you toward their target, as intelligent and free and human as a simple bullet.

    While the rest of the world celebrates Armistice Day…

    We have Veterans Day, or, as I like to put it, “your recruiter lied to you and society used your entire childhood to condition you to accept that, so to make up for getting screwed like that we’ll have a postal holiday and a parade for you”.
    Just, you know, don’t actually expect those benefits they promised you BEFORE you signed the enlistment or induction papers, and try to keep in mind as every politician with access to a microphone is praising your decision to “serve the country”, that the renaming of the day as Veterans Day was a deliberate ploy to try to ease the sting of the use of United States soldiers, led by Doug McArthur, Dwight Eisenhower and Patton, to fire on an encampment, daily parade and daily petition to President Hoover to actually honor the promised benefits to Spanish War and World War 1 veterans.
    Instead Hoover gave their pensions to Investment Bankers, like his party and their TeaBag affiliates are promising to do AGAIN, only now they’ve got Social Security to give to the Investment Bankers along with them.
    They’ve also got enough RepubliFascists who ran under the false flag of Democracy selling your benefits to the Banksters under the equally false flag of “Bipartisanship”.
    But, you’re supposed, under the agenda set by these Thieving Murdering Bastards, to remember your fallen comrades… instead of remembering your LIVING Comrades, and yourselves, and your families, who are getting bent over the Proverbial Sink and preparing to be ass-raped by the Thieves once again.

    Piñon Canyon slowly being conquered by Imperialists

    It’s not just apparent, it’s Elephant-in-the-parlor obvious that the Pentagon assumes they own not only every square centimeter of Foreign lands conquered by their Legion of Doom Imperial Stormtroopers. Every square centimeter in America too.
    Ed has put together a short collection of videos pointing up the planned assault on Americans by American Military, something that wasn’t available a century and a half ago when the Imperial Storm Troopers wore blue uniforms with yellow stripes on the legs and rode horses as they murdered Americans to take the land. The first I’m posting, actually the middle of the series, he takes the “fightin’ words” the TeaBag racist scum use. Points out that the Tea Potty really doesn’t defend the rights and freedoms of Individual Citizens, rather, they defend the Privileges of Corporate “citizens”.
    If the ranches in Piñon Canyon were owned by Halliburton, maybe?
    And
    The prequel to the one above this.
    And
    And the last of the series, in its proper order.

    Why haven’t the Tea-Bags, ever so ready to protest the “unconstitutional confiscation” of the sole privilege of providing Health Care from the Private Sector, meaning: No Medicaid, No Medicare, No CHAMPUS, No CHAMPVA… NOTHING but “If you’re poor and can’t afford health care, then F.O.A.D.” similarly protested the confiscation of private land by the Biggest part of the “Big Government” they so vehemently denounce, the Military and Police State apparati?

    Some of the whiners bitch, piss and moan if you use “obscene” words, by their definition, to describe what they do to us, so the first part of that acronym,”F.O.A.D.” the word “fuck” has to be unwritten, and you have to guess that from the rest of it, “Off And Die”.

    See, they can do it to us, royally and consistently, but we’re not allowed to use the word “fuck” to describe them fucking us like that.

    We’re also not allowed, you know, to point out the vast similarities between their party and the Nazi and Fascist parties, but, hey, Momma always said, Nazi Brownshirt Stormtrooper is as Fascist Blackshirt Stormtrooper does”.

    If they ever get off their High-pocritical Horse about being called names that adequately describe their actions and policies, that would be a step toward regaining any respect they once enjoyed.
