Auf Wiedersehen, Miss American Pie

You might find some solace in the fact that a country with a partial electorate this gullible and people in positions of power this insane and/or manipulative…

Pizzagate

…is going to get what it deserves. But the question came up regarding this prediction when I was discussing it the other night:

Travis Getty, “Here’s How the US Empire Will Devolve Into Fascism and Then Collapse — According to Science,” Raw Story, 7 December 2016:

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/12/heres-how-the-us-empire-will-devolve-into-fascism-and-then-collapse-according-to-science/

[a Norwegian professor at the University of Hawaii and Transcend Peace University, Johan Galtung] predicted in his 2009 book, “The Fall of the American Empire — and then What?” that the U.S. was plagued by 15 internal contradictions that would end its global power by 2020, and Galtung warned that phase of the decline would usher in a period of reactionary fascism.

American fascism would spring from its capacity for global violence, a vision of exceptionalism, a belief in an inevitable and final war between good and evil, the cult of a strong state leading that battle, and a cult of the “strong leader.”

Galtung said all of those elements presented themselves during the Bush era, but he fears fascist tendencies could sharpen under Trump as those cultists lash out in disbelief at the loss of American power.

The sociologist identified unsustainable economic, social, military and political contradictions that would eventually topple the U.S. as a world power.

“What’s going to take its place?”

What indeed?

While a portion of this is nothing new, the point is I had not carried my thinking quite far enough. The point? There are people in government who don’t just want to cripple the federal government; they want to completely destroy it.

They want to set up Ted Cruz’s Dominionist/Seven Mountains kingdom, reflecting more Saudi Arabia than true Sharia Law, though certainly there are elements of legislating the bedroom that would fit with this nutty element’s intrusion upon what occurs between consenting adults. This while ignoring what occurs in the military between a non-consenting adult and a rapist. Since this works in the favor of multinationals who are waiting their turn to run the world, it continues and the loony tunes march toward inverted fascism and/or fascism seems inevitable. Imagine the Saudis controlling the Taliban and you get the idea with the difference being a Western spin with Jesus instead of Mohamed on the war banners.

This is because only a state–and then only a powerful one–could possibly present an obstacle to direct corporate control of the planet.

And that is largely because the intelligence community is just following orders. Nur nach Befehlen. Can you hear me now?

Way Down We Go

It’s obligatory, isn’t it? I was going to go with a different title, but apparently Caitlin Sweet, et al, beat me to it, referring to the deserving portion. Instead you get a step away from that with a Kaleo lyric from a song containing a similar phrase.

ME, ME, ME

Let me get the personal crap out of the way first. The party that decided it would be fun to screw me over in 2010-2011 got their asses handed to them last night. Am I gloating? Only a little.

But then I’m not looking for housing in Canada {again}, planning mass protests, or even sharpening my hacker skills either.

WHAT HAPPENED?

I see three or four different issues here.

JOBS

A very quick but interesting rundown on manufacturing job losses in the US and where they occurred by Andrew Flowers over at Nate Silver’s FiveThiryEight. Note how well it matches the red you may have seen on your various e-screens last night. In 2008, Edwards was the only candidate talking about poverty. After he dropped out, there was no candidate talking about poverty. And, so, eight years later the working class gave Washington, DC the finger. I’d cheer except of course I see several problems with Trump bringing back manufacturing, assuming he even intends to do so.

Automation is one. Even if there were a manufacturing boom in the US in a few years, much of it would be automated. Sorry, Joe the Widget-Assembler.

Two, there would be the unattractive choices of either lowering minimum wage {which Trump has already suggested he wants to do} or raising pay so that people can buy whatever it is being manufactured. Of course, they could also reduce the requirements to get loans in order to afford the stuff. You know, what almost destroyed the world economy back in ’08.

This is a recipe for a second Great Depression. But don’t get too worried yet. I will explain how this is going to be President Pence anyway, with Trump sticking his head in every few months shouting at people and screwing things up until he disappears again to do whatever he can to build his fortune further.

GOP HILLARY HATE

The Republicans have done such a great job of painting Hillary as a radical liberal {she really, really isn’t even a moderate one} while joining her at bible study for decades and decades that they couldn’t pull it back…assuming they really wanted to. The Bushes may have publicly endorsed her, but I wonder who they really voted for in the booth.

I’m still hearing this ridiculous mantra. “Never-you-mind we’ve had solid pro-business running things since Carter. Trust us, they want to tax you to death. And we can’t steal your money as quickly if it goes to the gubberment first.”

THE DEMOCRATIC STRATEGY

The saying went, “Bill Clinton took a step to the right and the Republicans in Congress took three.” So the Dems decided to keep stepping to the right to watch the GOP fall off the cliff.

Except the working class didn’t give a shit about the rest of that. Didn’t care about Trump’s personal baggage. Didn’t care that he was a racist. DC failed working people. Here’s a guy talking negative about NAFTA. F— the Times and MSNBC, they aren’t helping either and are stuck on shit like who gets to use which bathroom while these non-working working people are struggling to pay bills. Maybe I should have gone with “It’s the Economy, Stupid.”

In essence, given the choice between a Republican in name and a Republican in policy only, they chose the former. The Democrats also abandoned the unions in order to move that far right. Turns out Wall Street does have immense influence over media but when people are pissed off enough they don’t listen to it. Wall Street provides cash, but it doesn’t actually vote. This fact should give us hope but look what we wound up with.

At the last moment, the Republicans fell to the ground and the Democrats were the ones who went over the cliff. This is what they get for abandoning people and embracing multinationals. They forgot where their strength came from.

AND FINALLY TRIBALISM

Read: Racism and xenophobia. Watts {see the first link up top} covered this. It is very likely in the genes and that makes sense if you think about human history. It would be nice if we started surviving via cooperation, but there’s those hardwired things in the head again.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

Right. The Republicans have control of it all for now. It will be the Pence-Ryan show. Repeal Obamacare. Maybe try to repeal or mess with gay marriage, we’ll see. More corporate welfare in the guise of creating jobs {again, multinationals make money by providing services while eliminating jobs and paying less for those that remain; they are the real enemy}.

Trump is going to find out, probably very, very rudely, that he isn’t in charge, not really. What will he do? Hard to say, probably have a meltdown.

The racism and poverty problems will be exacerbated. Trump will have his fingers in his ears and it won’t be him running the show anyway. There will be months of disconnect between what Trump says and what Pence is doing, providing much confusion.

Wars will continue and maybe we’ll even have new ones. In other words, the status quo.

BBD – Why So Slow?

…the most heinous and evil force of the [21st] century.


Since moving to Maricopa county things have been a little different than the past. Now, narrative plots perpetrated by the US intelligence community and the two primary fraudulent political parties have no resolution. They are specifically designed so that I am offered the bad and worse choices of ether guessing how they will resolve {and then they will resolve differently which would serve to undermine my credibility} or to force me to reveal personal information of others and myself which will then make that information fair game for further intrigues.

This is another reason why the blog has been slower than in the past. I’m currently in the middle of a glacially-paced plot involving the murder of a HIV-positive white supremacist who was having rufie parties involving young {sometimes reportedly under aged} men and boys of color. He is also apparently connected to the Arizona GOP and, given the cameras and Internet setup at his home, probably international criminals {I’ve heard German, Russian or both} which means likely also a CIA asset and/or FBI informant.

Imagine profiting from sex videos feeds on the dark web while infecting the poor Mexican and black communities with AIDS. While HIV is not the death sentence it once was, that is for people who can afford the medicine and many poor people cannot because we got Obamacare instead of single payer.

Additionally, he sold heroin and other drugs, so he was probably a DEA CI as well.

That’s all I care to write about it for now. Except his name and these details have been thrown in my path for two months. Two months prior to his murder. Imagine if I’d investigated any of it. I’d be a suspect.

And so another Langley ploy to try to frame me for something I had nothing to do with unfolds.

The History of Slime, or, You’re Next, Sister

As noted below, this is mostly an expansion on the previous post, in this case magnifying power’s practice of demonizing groups for its own selfish ends. We really need to start considering the huge implications of 21st Century COINTELPRO, MHCHAOS and how, when these programs are active, things really are not often what they seem.

BACKGROUND – THE JEWISH CONSPIRACY

Probably the famous/infamous case of maligning an entire group of people is that of anti-Semitism. But where did the “Jewish conspiracy” originate?

From a forgery, a book called The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion, first printed in Russia in 1903. Henry Ford printed 500,000 copies in the US in the 1920s and Hitler made it standard in schools starting in 1933 despite having been exposed as a forgery in 1921.

Though anti-Semitism predated the book, it gave anti-Semite groups something to hold up as evidence of evil intent by Jews the world round. This sometimes persists even today.

BACKGROUND – MALIGNING AFRICAN AMERICANS

Though the FOX crowd loves to point out how long ago the Civil War was, etc. the problems associated with racial bigotry continued far later. The best example is, after WWII, both the Veterans Administration and Housing & Urban Development gave white veterans inexpensive housing. African American veterans were denied this and essentially sent to ghettos.

This is where two noxious myths came from. The first, whites pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps when it was really a social program. The other being that war is good for the middle class. It was, in that very narrow sense, only because the wealthy and corporations were taxed at would-blow-Bill-O’Reilly’s-mind levels. This was not just a result of paying down the war debt, but was widely accepted as a way of preventing another Great Depression.

The irony here can be found in both myths. The anti-reparations crowd really doesn’t get that they have benefited from white “reparations” after WWII. The pro-war crowd has disconnected itself from taxation and redistribution of wealth downwards in order to maintain a healthy society.

It only gets worse from there. The reporting of the late Gary Webb, though often maligned also as saying something he didn’t, that is it was an act of racism as well as greed, was probably accurate. We can see the same where Afghanistan and Honduras are concerned. Stealing the heroin from Russia and then increasing the output while running death squads and maintaining military bases after ousting Zelaya makes that pretty clear. Lest you think this is all about the US, it isn’t. Investors in Honduras infrastructure include China, Japan, the UK, and some EU countries.

Given all that, it seems not only likely that it was more kicking of the poor while they’re down, but also much, much larger and systematic than when Webb reported on it. We are not only the real power behind the big drug cartels, we also coddle international banks who launder their money and fund terrorism. This is why so many stories about the minutiae are for many purposes a waste of time to write and read. If you cannot see the big picture, what’s the point of arguing about one or two of a thousand symptoms of the same disease that is power and its tendency to abuse?

This is all about power; not party or philosophy. Purely mercenary and selfish, it is foolhardy to look for power figures who oppose what they clearly all support.

For example, though the Clintons like to brag about getting 1 million people off of welfare, there are several things that do not really indicate that this was necessarily a good thing. Where do the people who cannot eat and cannot find a job wind up? Automation, outsourcing overseas, and productivity, AKA overworking people, mean that there aren’t enough jobs to go around, and due to higher demand, don’t pay enough to rescue the economy from itself.

Then there is support from the private prison industry for Hillary right now. We are the most imprisoned country per capita on the planet. Is it any wonder when there is money to be made that this happened?

The system itself creates situations where the choices are bad and worse. And so lots of people wind up circling the drain and getting labeled as “Superpredators,” a term Hillary Clinton herself used referring to African American teens.

Then you have Barack Obama who, as I stated in the previous post–and this one is really a continuation of that one–released 600 prisoners and didn’t even make a dent in the statistics. We incarcerate more than that in a day.

Identity politics, though less offensive than Trump’s blatant racist remarks or Cruz’ friends’ calls for internment camps for atheists, is in effect the same without the insult added to the injury. At least on the larger scale; I’m quite certain that there are those who work for them engage in the same kind of bigoted language. The assumption that because candidate X is this or that means that they will favor this or that is a false one.

Trump’s comments serve to draw voters to Hillary and drive voters to the GOP at the same time. Dividing us is the goal here, lest half of us show up in the Financial District in Manhattan, the other half on the Mall in DC, demanding a new New Deal.

BACKGROUND – ISLAMOPHOBIA

Horrific education, a favorite thing to get cannibalized in order to shove money instead to places where it seems to wind up in the pockets of politicians, bureaucrats, bankers and brokers, has lead to an unbelievably ignorant public. Most don’t know the simplest things about Islam. How much worse when they don’t even get reminded where Al Qaeda and the Taliban came from?

Surveys also show that people who do not know any Muslims personally are more likely to think they are all violent and prone to terrorism. We can call this the ‘boogeyman’ effect and leave it there, I suppose. In war, and this is a war of a kind, more financial than cultural despite what you would read in right- and leftwing leaning outlets alike, demonizing the other side is part of it. This is where most of it comes from.

But, there is a problem. Though the most recent big news attack {as far as I know, I’m busy writing this right now}, the one in San Bernardino, did involve a couple who were Muslim. And despite stories like this one, where the real motive may have been to rob a train {something so-called fiscal conservatives and war hawks alike can understand and get behind: Piracy}, it’s the meme, the image that sticks with most people. Think of it this way:

“News said another shooting was done by a Muslim or a black. Lesson: Avoid Muslims and blacks.”

We are a pattern-matching-for-survival species, and that is what happens in the heads of many people. The nuances, the root problems, the specifics, don’t matter to them. Simpler to avoid and either allow, or push, leaders to spy on all these people and limit their freedoms. Never mind the specifics indicate that it doesn’t help, that these WASPs are also included in these dragnets, and that the potential for financial, personal and political abuse is not only likely but already reported on in some instances.

THE POINT – ADDING LGBTQA TO THE HITLIST

While my story is complicated in many ways, the bottom line is they hoped, and still hope, to push me to violence in order to both silence me on being a witness to illegal activities and to start building the same kind of “forgery” that implicates gays in the same way that they have done to African Americans and Muslims. That’s it.

And despite what you might see on the cover of OUT magazine’s anniversary issue {could you imagine putting Reagan, who appointed one SSM justice, or Cheney, who supported SSM before Obama and Clinton, on that cover?}, Barack Obama and the people who work for him were all on board with that. Clearly. It is impossible that it could be otherwise. See either Wicked Game or my IAMA on Reddit for more on that.

This is why I say we cannot afford to elect another Republican {nor stealth-GOP Libertarians} nor Democrat {nor “Independent” Bernie Sanders who counts FBI and CIA, with two of the worst civil and human rights records in US history as social programs} to be elected.

That leaves Green Party for me. As far as voting goes, the only hope I see–and it will not be a panacea by any means–is to get third parties their 10% of the vote in order to start breaking the stranglehold that the two thoroughly corrupt parties and their false choices present.

The political spectrum looks like this:

+++G+++Ctr+++++DR

Where, wedged just between the D and R, is Hitler. They’ve so filled our heads with left-dread, that we now see anything near the center, much less to the left of it and less far than these two are to the very far right, as some terrifying thing that must be avoided.

I’m terrified now, aren’t you? And they’ve had it all for a long time. We can do better, but only if we get desperate enough to stop choosing the lesser perceived weasel.

Deep State, Deep Shit: The US’ Cold War at Home

PREFACE – Who am I addressing?

Some folks may wonder why I don’t spend more time and energy talking at or railing about the Republican party. It is because I think they are utterly unreachable, so far gone off the cliff that there is no hope whatsoever of reasoning with or instilling reason into their leadership.

For example, the GOP, and it’s sometimes controlled/sometimes renegade splinter group the Tea Party, spend a lot of time railing about the strawman “Sharia law” being enacted on US soil. While being an incredibly stupid thing to believe on the one hand, it seems pretty clear that people like Ted Cruz want something exactly like that, or more accurately, what the House of Saud has: a theocratic monarchy in which everything and everyone is “owned” by the monarchs. This is called Dominionism in the US, and is some Zionish perversion of Christianity. Cruz literally thinks it is his destiny to become King of America. God wants him to steal all your shit. It is precisely what they spend so much time railing against “over there” that they typically want to do here.

And Trump has helped to bring their blatant disregard for human beings out into the open. Nothing stealth about it anymore.

Related to the anti-LGBT and anti-women’s choice, one can imagine horrifying scenarios in which corporate mercenaries round up people our new self-appointed Second Coming deems deserving of that. It makes for a great “scarrative.”

But…

But the Democrats and Barack Obama signed off on the NDAA that allows DoD to hold indefinitely without evidence or legal procedures anyone, including US citizens, on suspicion of terrorism. The historical track record of such legislation always goes one way: More abuse than actual security.

But also…

Note how the end result is the same, but the packaging is different. Do you see that? The Democrats won’t publicly call you faggot or baby-murderer, and may not even be that discerning about who they lock up. But your odds of being caught up in the dragnets that insane politicians and bureaucrats, along with their friends in the public sector, deem needing locking up, will be locked up.

And at the same time…

The rhetoric of the Democrats is different. The policies are not in that they all seek to cheapen human life and rights for personal financial and power gain.

EXAMPLES

Robert L. Dear, Jr.

The New York Times has mostly surprised me, and Washington Post has somewhat followed up on Dear’s background. He does, actually, seem to be the Joe Dirt version of Ted Cruz. Seems to be, anyway. I assume this requires little explanation. Dear on the one hand frequently used religion as a weapon and as a defense for his actions. He had many online indicators of this over the years.

Richard Fausset, “For Robert Dear, Religion and Rage Before Planned Parenthood Attack,” New York Times, 1 December 2015:

nytimes.com/2015/12/02/us/robert-dear-planned-parenthood-shooting.html

But “the Left…”

First we had the interrupted planned attack at the University of Chicago. In this case, it was an African American who was upset about the murder of one or more African American teens. Understandably upset, but, had he succeeded, would merely have worked against, not for, what he hoped to achieve. At least I think so.

Michelle Broder Van Dyke and Tasneem Nashrulla, “Man Allegedly Threatened To “Execute” White Students At University Of Chicago: In an online threat that prompted the university to close on Monday, federal prosecutors allege the 21-year-old suspect also threatened to kill “any number of white policemen” who responded,” BuzzFeed, 29 November 2015:

buzzfeed.com/mbvd/university-of-chicago-cancels-classes-in-response-to-fbi-war

Second…now please stop reacting emotionally for a moment, hold the kneejerk outrage, and ONLY consider what this story implies to your average white person lacking critical thinking skills.

Joanna Walters, “Fetal abduction: brutal attacks against expectant mothers on the rise in US: Experts fear easy access to news and information online has contributed to rise of the crime, in which perpetrators seek to claim others’ fetuses as their own,” Guardian, 2 December 2015:

theguardian.com/us-news/2015/dec/02/fetal-abduction-attacks-expectant-mothers

What are the memes? The images one is left with? And what effect could that have on people on the fence? Do people generally go by statistics, or anecdotal evidence when making decisions?

I think it is obvious. If you are trying to win hearts and minds about reproductive rights or refuting Trump’s black-on-black crime statements, this story also does not help.

NOW FOR THE REALLY HARD PART

What if I told you–open mind, please–any of those three stories above could have been due to pushing people who already had similar beliefs, but not necessarily to the point that they would act on them in these violent ways–over the edge? You probably are turning me off right now. You are probably assuming it is not possible, that this suggestion is crazy.

Hold the phone, please. Research is showing that, for example, when we are distracted, words like “bye-bye” can actually result in more “buy-buy.” Yeah. When we are not alert to what is going into our heads, stuff can get in there that we would just as soon did not when we get our bank or credit card statement.

Derick F. Davis and Paul M. Herr, “When bye bye becomes buy buy: How homophones affect consumer behavior,” ScienceDaily, 20 November 2013:

sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/11/131120081102.htm

How much more so then, when we aren’t even aware–despite it being confirmed by both the Federation of American Scientists and the Department of Defense–that has been possible for decades to send subliminal messages in one direction, from the device to a human being, without the need for implants or any of that typical “tinfoil hat” stuff. It’s right there, in print, in FOIA.

It’s actually not that complicated and might just be this simple:

https://mccoyote.wordpress.com/v2k/

And DoD clearly reacted to growing pressure and knowledge that this technology and underlying scientific principle {simply put, the Frey effect}, exists and works. They took down the V2K definition from their website and later issued two info memos on the same day circumventing accountability for abuse in both.

Step back. Step outside yourself. Look at the larger picture. What is the result of these three stories?

Voting for Hillary or Cruz. Radicalizing the parties and mobilizing the respective bases in order to ensure these two very similar choices appear lightyears distant from each other, even though they both serve big banks and other multinationals.

You can even disregard–but do so at you peril–the possibility that covert operations were involved in any of those three stories and still see that these kinds of stories get exploited by political opportunists. The implied message is that they really care about the underlying issues when, in reality, it is far more clear that they care more about helping themselves and their rich and powerful pals at the expense of everyone else.

Is the end of mass incarceration, especially as related to the private prison system and for-profit subcontractors, anywhere in sight? Obama recently released 600 prisoners. The very next day, in my small county alone, they arrested 50+ people in drug raids. It gives the appearance of Democrats fighting back again the crappy drug war and the Republican image of cleaning up the communities, when it is really all about exploiting people, people driven to extremes just to avoid debtor’s prison, home repossessions, and things like bankruptcy due to medical bills.

The older example, again. The Ground Zero Mosque traced back to the CIA and FBI. Thought the reporter considers this a GOP operation, I rather see it as both GOP and DNC. Antiwar people, like myself–and I worked on the project briefly in late 2009–would also likely be mobilized to fight for the group’s right to build it. But it was really about 2008 and 2010 elections, not the issue that it appeared to be. It was there to manipulate people, not help one single goddamn thing.

Matthew Phelan, “The Ground Zero Mosque Was an Inside Job,” Gawker, 11 September 2014:

blackbag.gawker.com/the-ground-zero-mosque-was-an-inside-job-1633321283

And that is what politics here have come to. Professional wrestling or football, where no matter who “wins,” the rest of us all lose.

NO ONE ELSE TO SAY IT, WISH THERE WERE

I know. I know because both of these shit parties wanted to add LGBTQ to the hitlist, the watchlist, the “of course they’re terrorists” list by harassing me and ruining my life permanently. The advantages, if you can calm down and think like the psychopaths who think up these plots, are obvious. You can pick off minorities, drive a wedge between them and the general WASP public, as they have largely succeeded in doing with African Americans and Muslims; and, you get to add more justification to your security/spying contracts by writing thinktank white papers making the case for LGBTQetc as security threat by citing instances where you secretly caused the terror attacks you are now citing. Kind of like Dick Cheney quoting himself via Judith Miller except the attacks were “real,” they were just surreptitiously provoked.

What are you to do? Write my {GOP} reps and say, “Hi, I’m gay. Could you help me?” Did it anyway, but that party doesn’t see much interested in civil liberties. Had to find out the same was true with Democrats the hard way.

IN CLOSING

I know rightwing terrorists are far more prevalent than leftwing. I am living, in so far as I can still call myself alive, proof of that. That’s not the point.

The point is that Democrats are just as likely to pull the rug out from under you as Republicans are, all the while smiling in your face and talking a good game for which they don’t lift a solitary goddam finger.

Simply put, we need to focus on ending this Cold War, let the dust settle, to see where things really stand. Our domestic “intelligence assessments” are muddled due to big money, liars, and, yes, covert operations designed to sway public opinion. Isn’t that the umbrella under which all these other problems stand?

Psychopaths who know us better than we know ourselves can manipulate us. Mass surveillance is one part of that and why we should not consider voting for anyone who supports it.

The Stanford Research Institute received CIA funding, and Dr. Melges published work about using drugs and hypnosis to create “disassociative states,” i.e., induced schizophrenia. One of Melges’ partners on these experiments was a doctor named Leo E. Hollister, who first dosed Ken Kesey with LSD as part of an Army experiment in 1960. He later admitted to author John Marks that he conducted drug research for the CIA. Marks’ 1979 book, “The Search for the Manchurian Candidate,” contains numerous such revelations about other government researchers.

In other words, the doctor who cared for Lang in Santa Clara was a senior figure at one of the CIA’s top institutional grantees.

“If TPP is ratified, people in the Pacific-Rim countries would have to live by the rules in this leaked text,” said Peter Maybarduk, Public Citizen’s Global Access to Medicines Program Director. “The new monopoly rights for big pharmaceutical firms would compromise access to medicines in TPP countries. The TPP would cost lives.”

OREGON SHOOTING

What came out of it? Guess.

The drug lobby is pushing for more drugs to “fix” our shooter problem:

Joe Khalil, “Issue of Mental Health Part of National Discourse Again Following Oregon College Shooting,” Fox 40 Sacramento, 2 October 2015:

http://fox40.com/2015/10/02/issue-of-mental-health-part-of-national-discourse-again-following-oregon-college-shooting/

Despite the obvious in some/not all cases, but especially Columbine, that some of these people were well-drugged at the time they went postal:

Dan Roberts, “Every Mass Shooting Shares One Thing In Common & It’s NOT Weapons,” Ammoland, 1 April 2013:

Eric Harris age 17 (first on Zoloft then Luvox) and Dylan Klebold aged 18 (Columbine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado), killed 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves. Klebold’s medical records have never been made available to the public.

http://www.ammoland.com/2013/04/every-mass-shooting-in-the-last-20-years-shares-psychotropic-drugs/

Supporters of the drug lobby are pushing for more gun control:

Matt Vespa, “Obama Says Gun Violence ‘Is Something We Should Politicize’ In Statement about Oregon Shooting,” Townhall, 1 October 2015:

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2015/10/01/obama-says-gun-control-is-something-we-should-politicize-at-oregon-shooting-presser-n2059996

And supporters of the gun lobby are pooh-poohing drugs and calling for more guns to protect ourselves from the crazies:

David Edwards, “Less than 90 minutes after Oregon shooting, CNN analyst suggests school’s ‘gun free zone’ to blame,” Rawstory, 1 October 2015:

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/10/less-than-90-minutes-after-oregon-shooting-cnn-analyst-suggests-schools-gun-free-zone-to-blame/

Less than two hours after massacre at Umpqua Community College on Thursday, CNN military analyst Rick Francona suggested that the shooter had chosen the location because it was a gun free zone.

Note that this is a win-win situation for our criminal elite: More guns or drugs = more kickbacks; less guns and drugs means more control since only cops and mercenaries will be armed and more “crazies” for all of us to fear so we’ll be begging armed sadists to protect us. More drugs means they can ignore your opinions because there’s something wrong with you or you’d agree with their greedy warmongering actions. Perfect recipe for fascism no matter how you slice it.

CIA

Additionally, the 3-D chess move that really gives away CIA’s involvement with the shooting, regards 4Chan, one of those places where members of anonymous would hang out because literally everyone who uses it is anonymous except for the administrator.

Jason Silverstein, Larry Mcshane, Nancy Dillon, “Madman kills nine, injures seven after shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon,” NY Daily News, 2 October 2015:

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/shooting-oregon-umpqua-community-college-article-1.2381711

Several message boards noted the shooter may have revealed his plans Wednesday night, in posts on the website 4chan.

“Some of you guys are alright. Don’t go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest,” one post reads.

“happening thread will be posted tomorrow morning…so long space robots…Will post again in the am. 10 min countdown. Won’t say more to much to prepare (sic)”

4Chan is therefore a government target due to association with Anonymous.

And let’s not forget the sockpuppets. Recall again NTrepid’s system reported on by Barrett Brown:

Patrick McGuire, “Why Is Barrett Brown Facing 100 Years in Prison?,” Vice, 31 January 2013:

http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/why-is-barrett-brown-facing-100-years-in-jail

Alongside Abraxas and Cubic on those tax filings is another company called Ntrepid. According to Florida State’s records of corporations, Richard Helms is the director of that company. In 2011, Barrett’s work helped lead the Guardian to their report that Ntrepid won a $2.76 million-dollar contract from Centcom (U.S. Central Command), to create “online persona management” software, also known as “sockpuppetry.” To break it down in plain English, online persona management was created to populate social networks with a bunch of fake and believable social media personas to “influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.”

Ntrepid also has a product they call Tartan, that’s detailed in this internal presentation hosted by the Wall Street Journal. In Ntrepid’s own parlance, they describe Tartan as a program that can “Analyze illicit organizations and less structured social networks by identifying: Ranks of influence within human networks… [and can] end the use of [online] aliases.” Clearly they are looking to dismantle the smoke and mirrors that groups like Anonymous maintain, by hanging out in chatrooms where they do not need to identify themselves officially, with many private communications happening at once. This creates a difficult to penetrate den, where people can easily hide online. Evidently, Ntrepid is seeking to pull all of that apart with Tartan.

What they really mean is

1} Create phony online consensus as a means of creating peer pressure in order to achieve the goals of the Deep State/military industrial complex.

2} To identify whistleblowers so that the criminal elite can continue manipulating and stealing without hiccups.

Let’s get something clear. The purpose of the 2nd amendment was never for hunting, nor was it for protecting your home from burglars. It was always to prevent illegal seizure of your property by the government, as a check on Congress’ standing army in case tyranny should take over. At the time British soldiers were well in the minds of the framers. They had taken over homes as if they owned them, much like the House of Saud does in its own country. And, like how Blackwater behaved during Sandy:

Jamie Wilson, “Mercenaries Guard Homes of the Rich in New Orleans,” Guardian, 12 September 2005:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2005/sep/12/hurricanekatrina.usa

What they leave out is how they broke into homes, threw furniture in the street, and set up headquarters and sleeping quarters wherever they damn well pleased.

Jeremy Scahill, “Overkill: Feared Blackwater Mercenaries Deploy in New Orleans,” DemocracyNow, 12 September 2005:

http://www.democracynow.org/2005/9/12/overkill_feared_blackwater_mercenaries_deploy_in

Yes, that’s right. And they also alleged that they had been deputized. And another key point is that these Blackwater guys said that they were given the authority to use lethal force, as well as the power to make arrests. And when we asked them about this use of them in the United States, they said that they believe that we’re going to see a lot more of this and that this is a trend. So, I think that this is a very, very disturbing development that we are seeing here on the streets of New Orleans, Amy.

And let’s not forget the unconfirmed words of the American Sniper:

Terrence McCoy, “The ‘unverifiable’ legacy of Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in American history,” Washington Post, 30 July 2014:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/07/30/the-complicated-but-unveriable-legacy-of-chris-kyle-the-deadliest-sniper-in-american-history/

“…He and another sniper traveled to New Orleans, set up on top of the Superdome, and proceed to shoot dozens of armed residents who were contributing to the chaos.” The magazine said one conversation participant said Kyle “claimed to have shot thirty men on his own,” while another said Kyle and the other killed 30 between them.

Of course, they primarily mean black people trying to eat.

This was not a lone wolf shooter but rather the employee of an organization that engages in drug running, mass murder and surveillance, torture, protecting corporations who fund terrorism, assassinating and making political prisoners of journalists, and has lied about every one of these things.

OPiuM for Political Hacks

Today, John McCain was going batty over China and “cyber.” This is not so much any sign of sincerity, but rather a variant on the old politician trick made famous by Nazis {but only because they used it to perform genocide} and neoconservatives because Michael Ledeen codified it in neocon writings.

The basic idea is to ascribe to your opponents your own worst attributes. Nazis accused Jews of killing children. Neocons accuse everyone else of voter fraud. It’s to get out ahead of any revelations as to the truth of their own involvement in the same. To a weak mind, subsequent reports of those having made those statements actually being the ones doing it may sound like tit-for-tat.

So it likely is with the Office of Personnel Management hack. The amount they scream about China is directly proportional to the amount of time they spend in bed with it.

As noted somewhere in the long tweet thread from the previous post and noted in the post before that, the GOP created their own CIA which was in part the actual CIA. They have the same capabilities and since CIA officers can freely moonlight on Wall Street in their free time what they are up to during that time is anyone’s guess.

But how to make the OPM Hack possible? They had to leave a backdoor, which is what the intelligence community keeps asking for more of. Just as making the American people as ignorant–and therefore pliable–as possible, one must first gut education funding, they prevented funding from going to protecting the identities and personal data of most covert employees of the US government. Blackmail and extortion–that is, threatening someone’s family–are all quite possible once you have this data.

Congress was warned about the possible problem, failed to provide funding to fix it. Here:

IT News AU, “OPM Chief blames hack on decades of infosec underinvestment,” 18 June 2015:

itnews.com.au/news/opm-chief-blames-hack-on-decades-of-infosec-underinvestment-405392

And does anyone really believe that we are at ‘war’ with China? It’s effing preposterous. This is George W. Bush’s “favored status” nation. Crooks always need a boogeyman in order to distract you when they pick your pocket.

The point of the op was several-fold. First, you have the very private dirt on new FBI agents just out of the academy. Should they ever get the silly idea of actually doing their jobs–already apparently soundly beaten out of the older, existing variety–you can threaten or blackmail them into not doing that. Second, you can recruit more agents into your GOP-CIA and DNC-CIA shadow organizations in order to further subvert the law and the American people while shoveling as much NATSEC money into your own pockets as possible.

And China will play the fall-guy for you. Why not? It’s not as though we haven’t been hacking the hell out of them too.

Of course none of this will see the light of day for decades. Instead we have Obama making absurd statements like the one about deeds following words. Does he get the irony? I think he does, I just don’t know how he reconciles his ability to sometimes eloquently state the right thing to do and then do the opposite, knowing that the effects will be catastrophic down the road, playing ye ol’ kick the can, the game that is becoming ever more dangerous to play.

GOP will share, or have already shared, the data with the Democrat spymasters as well, you can be sure. This is part of keeping it quiet, sharing the loot with the other crime family. They will then divvy up the people they find a use for like a football draft. The battle between two shit-eating species of vulture will pick over the bones of their kills, whether that be the middle class, the country or the planet. There will be no suitable-for-the-masses solution to climate change so long as CIA exists and these two parties are dominant.

This was, despite our friendly standing with China, treason. But it’s not treated like treason when you have the right friends and already keep the Department of Justice’s tiny, shriveled gonads in your freezer.

Now, we are only hearing that we need more cyber-police {the old Michael Hayden call for ‘digital Blackwater’}, because politicians are in reality more concerned about what you know, what you think, than protecting a single goddam thing. By not protecting things, they get more kickbacks. It really is that simple.

They won’t use any additional powers that we hand them to fix what’s broke, but rather figure out how to screw the American people further. It’s just what they do.


Guess what kind of people are not in the OPM database.
