The US Government Is a Criminal Racket Writ Large

2 days ago

“A certain type of person strives to become a master over all, and to extend his force, his will to power, and to subdue all that resists it. But he encounters the power of others, and comes to an arrangement, a union, with those that are like him: thus they work together to serve the will to power. And the process goes on.”  
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
The political class is made up of those that seek to gain power over others due to either an attitude of superiority, an inflated ego, a desire to advance a personal agenda, or a misplaced concern for the wretched majority that they believe through power can be molded to their way of thinking. These political types are of many stripes, but among them rest an evil core, that group that

The Elite Controllers Fear the Individual and Individual Intelligence

6 days ago

This once great country of America has gone through many changes, and these changes, while implemented by the design of its true rulers, are not understood by the huddled masses that have been taught to accept mediocrity as desired normalcy. The ruling class fully understands that the only way to control people, and to finally control the world, is to stifle individual excellence by creating a society that refuses to think. This has been accomplished through planned conflict, the instilling of fear, the total control of education by the puppet state, by building dependence through public welfare, and by dominating most all positions of power in a myriad of state, corporate, and important intellectual appointments.
“At its root,

Chain of Command Theory Leads to Total Collective Tyranny

10 days ago

“For the greater good”: the phrase that always precedes the greatest evil.” 
~ Jakub Bożydar Wiśniewski
My first experience with the chain of command was when the Army drafted me into slavery during Vietnam. This particular dogma was demanded from the outset, and the reasons for this concept were immediately apparent to me. I knew that I would never adhere to such nonsense, as the entire premise was based upon complete control of the individual through intimidation, while imposing impossible bureaucratic headwinds meant to dissuade any from seeking relief from injustice or abuse. In other words, do as you are told, follow orders, and obey all “superiors,” which leads to tyranny over the majority.
Any chain of command is meant to

Why Oppose War?

13 days ago

War is the greatest plague that can afflict humanity, it destroys religion, it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge is preferable to it. ~ Martin Luther
How could any decent human being not oppose war? War is the scourge of mankind, it is the destroyer of entire civilizations, and if taken to the ultimate test, will be the destroyer of all living things on earth. The logic of this statement is not accepted by those who foment and prosecute war, and it is not understood by the masses of common people that support the aggressor state due to false patriotism and statolatry. The worship of the state in this country has reached levels that are beyond the bounds of sanity, and this could lead to a perilous end.
I have

The Real News Is What Is Not in the News

24 days ago

“Only those who do not wish to see can be deceived.”  ~ Dianna Hardy, Saving Eve
It has been said that hidden truths are unspoken lies. There are plenty of lies in the mainstream news today, whether it is related to politics and politicians, to important events, to war, to economic trickery and deceit, and on and on, but what about the truths that are hidden from view? These are lies as well, but these lies hold dark secrets, as lies of omission are the most sinister of all.
In the distant past, fooling the general population was a more difficult task. People for the most part were more skeptical than today, and could not be bombarded with lies and trickery via a controlling media source. While politicians have always been

War, Economic Ruin, and Liberty Destruction Will Never End

October 4, 2019

“Sneaky and underhanded, the Federal Reserve has been sucking the life blood out of the United States since 1913. Like a black widow spider, it weaves a web of corruption and deceit. Unknown to its prey, the FED’s bite is poisonous, deep, long-lasting and brings financial upheaval and misery to Americans.” ~ Jim McCarthy, The Money Spiders, the Ruin-NATION of the United States by the Federal Reserve
Do any of the common people ever question the driving force of corruption, financial destruction, and war that is the basis of most all United States domestic and foreign policy? Do any understand that those who control the money control the entirety of government and commerce? Do any understand that wars of aggression cannot be

Concerning Government and Mainstream Media

September 16, 2019

“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.” ~ Adolf Hitler
And so began the task! In order for the powerful to control the masses, a compliant populace is required. Those who hold the real power over the political class and media have been successful in their efforts to gain this control. This has always been, and given the human condition, will most likely always be. If only it were not so easy to fool the crowd, all could be

Fictitious Markets, False Economics, and the Reality of Fraud

September 10, 2019

In the past, there was a belief in the logic of the market, but no science of reasoning concerning the stock market was ever fully legitimate, as logic requires a market free from outside interference. Fast forward to today, and the manipulation is so extreme that little if any honesty is evident, and only fraud remains.
This stark reality should alarm investors, but many if not most, continue to rely on black magic economics as espoused by the mainstream media, those like Paul Krugman and his ilk, and a cadre of other Keynesian followers. As a rule, Keynesian or not, when it comes to market conditions and predictions, economists are always wrong. This is so due to the manipulative and bogus aspects of the Federal Reserve driven

The Myth of Democracy

September 6, 2019

“Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” ~ H.L. Mencken, Notes on Democracy
Democracy, simply put, means mob rule. In other words, it is the hoard of masses practicing collective stupidity. It is a worthless and dangerous effort that leaves the stench of failure wherever it is implemented.
The actual definition of the word democracy is government by the people, or a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the

US Sanctions Are Meant To Cause Deliberate Human Suffering

August 24, 2019

“To see others suffer does one good, to make others suffer even more: this is a hard saying but an ancient, mighty, human, all-too-human principle [….] Without cruelty there is no festival.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morals / Ecce Homo
Why do powerful governments revel in their ability to cause human suffering in order to bring about a desired political change? The West, led by the United States, has become the initiator and prosecutor of purposeful pain and suffering, and is continuing to advance policies that breed anguish and hardship against the innocent in many countries. These innocent, many of them children, are left starving, left without medical care, and are forced to live in fear due to the horrible

21st Century Politics

August 14, 2019

“A certain type of person strives to become a master over all, and to extend his force, his will to power, and to subdue all that resists it. But he encounters the power of others, and comes to an arrangement, a union, with those that are like him: thus they work together to serve the will to power. And the process goes on.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
This process referred to by Nietzsche is the process of one class gaining power, money, and control over another. This is the goal of the political class and those who run for high office. For those few elected who do not aspire to this goal initially, they soon succumb to the irresistible lust for power and self-importance, either voluntarily, by threat, or by pressure from their true

Evil Killing by the US Relies on Willful Indifference

August 7, 2019

“I come and stand at every door But none can hear my silent treadI knock and yet remain unseenFor I am dead for I am dead
I’m only seven though I diedIn Hiroshima long agoI’m seven now as I was thenWhen children die they do not grow
My hair was scorched by swirling flameMy eyes grew dim my eyes grew blindDeath came and turned my bones to dustAnd that was scattered by the wind
I need no fruit I need no riceI need no sweets nor even breadI ask for nothing for myselfFor I am dead for I am dead
All that I need is that for peaceYou fight today you fight todaySo that the children of this worldCan live and grow and laugh and play
– The Girl Child” ~Nazim Hitmet
This week marks another horrible anniversary of the two single largest

The Technocratic State is the Mortal Enemy of the Individual

August 2, 2019

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche
The idea of the “group” is the scourge of mankind, for when crowds gather, the individual disappears. When groups form, insanity is the result. This is the reason that the tyrannical state continually supports the group over the individual. This is the reason that the state promotes divisiveness, and pits group against group. This strategy weakens the whole of the masses, as all the strength of liberty resides in the individual and individual critical thought. Should the individual be

War Is the American Way of Life

July 16, 2019

“Kill one man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill them all, and you are a god.” ~Jean Rostand– Pensées d’un biologiste
How has a nation that boasts of being a bastion of freedom and liberty become the most prolific killer of on earth? This question will immediately enrage most Americans, and not in any moral sense of remorse for the innocent victims around the world, but due to a false sense of exceptionalism and backward patriotism.
To do any legitimate study of U.S. aggression would take one back to the very beginning, but the past 120 years have seen the continued slaughter of innocents as a normality of the American way of life. I say this because the masses have for the most part

US Navy Seal Acquitted of Murder

July 5, 2019

“The joy of killing! the joy of seeing killing done – these are traits of the human race at large.” ~Mark Twain, Following the Equator: A Journey Around the World
Why do men gain delight in killing? Why do they not question their actions before it is too late? Why do some men kill and then regret it, while others revel in it? While those who murder are always wrong, some are lied to by the state, and are fooled into believing in a false cause. But those who continue to kill, and justify this killing due to the orders of others, are evil. Those who do so without conscience are soulless.
The news today is that another American soldier charged with murdering a captive during an unconscionable war of aggression, has been acquitted

The Predictable Fate of Julian Assange

May 30, 2019

“Withholding information is the essence of tyranny. Control of the flow of information is the tool of the dictatorship.” ― Bruce Coville
No truer words were ever uttered, but the American herd will likely never understand the monstrous risk and extreme danger in what is being done to Julian Assange. This is a travesty that is gaining strength every day due to the now dictatorial powers wielded by the current political class under the pretense of “law” and “justice.” The law is tyrannical, and the dishonest justice is self-serving for the benefit of power and control.
The fate of the heroic Assange is in the hands of the very people who need him silenced in order to protect their state secrets. The preservation of tyranny depends

Will an ‘Apparent Suicide’

April 19, 2019

This title is not meant as a prediction, although considering the history of the fate of dissidents against the state, it needs to be considered. The life and story of Julian Assange has all the markings of a pre-determined outcome, but absolutely nothing should be accepted without scrutiny. The destiny of Julian Assange, a true modern hero, is uncertain to be sure, but with his arrest and state incarceration, and an almost assured extradition, his future seems bleak.
Many have called for the death of Julian Assange, including members of Congress. There was always the risk that he would be murdered, but instead he has been in a prison environment for the past seven years in Ecuador’s embassy in London. Now he is being held in

Why Would the US

March 25, 2019

“War serves only the warlords and the graveyards!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan
The term “unwinnable war” is a strange and ambiguous notion used most often to describe fake reasoning for not winning a war. This seems absurd to me, and at the same time insincere. Lately, I have heard this term used often in personal correspondence sent to me, and in the published writings of others concerning past wars. Mainly ex-soldiers, politicians, and other purveyors of war use this term in order to shield themselves from the shame of losing. But was the real intent ever to win?
After the fact, the unwinnable war theory always seems to surface, as if war should not be fought if it is unwinnable.  Does this mean that war is just a game? Do the U.S.

Conscription Is Slavery

February 25, 2019

It was a stressful evening sitting in front of the television set on August 5, 1971 with my parents, brother, and sister. It was very quiet and the mood was somber, as my family worried about my fate. The horrible program looked more like a bingo game show than what it actually was; a possible two year sentence of slavery to the state during the Vietnam War. If chosen in this lottery, I was to be drafted into the Army. Irony at this dark level is like a macabre nightmare, especially for the young and naïve.
If my number were drawn early, I would be ordered to report for “duty” the following spring. We were huddled together with fingers crossed, anxious in hopes of being there until late in the night, but unfortunately we did not

“I Ain’t Marchin’ Anymore”

February 22, 2019

War and killing are now as American as apple pie. Little thought of the victims of U.S. aggression is evident. This lack of compassion for human suffering at the hands of the political and corporate state, and the complicit military, is a travesty. It exposes widespread apathy at a level that belies imagination, and uncovers the glaring lie that Americans are exceptional.
The exceptional ones are those who stand against war and tyranny, not those who salute a flag that represents the murder and slaughter of innocents. Worshiping the purveyors of war is no different than worshiping war itself, but this distinction is lost in the brainwashed minds of those who hold the state up as a god. When support of war and those who prosecute

Leftist Politics of Racism and Sexism

February 15, 2019

The words racism and sexism as used today by the left and the mainstream media are a psychological scam. The real meaning has been destroyed in favor of politically correct lies meant to frighten and deceive the simple-minded masses. Those seeking to divide us are pathological by nature, and they use these terms as weapons. Those individuals and groups who rely on this tactic are spreaders of a societal disease for the single purpose of fulfilling a political agenda. There is no caring or honesty evident, and no real compassion exists. Only anger, hostility, and hatred are pursued. These are the tools of division used by pretenders, those postmodernists who purposely propagate separation instead of unity in order to promote

Collectivism Through Indoctrination

November 5, 2018

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche
Sometimes one has to be blunt. Considering human behavior, there is no other way, unless mediocrity, apathy, and stupidity are what are sought. Humans regard themselves as the most intelligent of all creatures, but reality seems to contradict this assumption. The human condition is disturbing to say the least, this due in large part to the fact that logic and independent thought are not often evident, especially in the crowd. Murder, war, torture, divisiveness, hatred, perversion, self-mutilation, thievery, rape and rampant ignorance are all evident, and yet humans consider

The Constitution

September 21, 2018

“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
Once again I have been reminded that September 17th was Constitution Day, the federal observance of the ratification of that power giving political document. How unwarranted to honor this piece of parchment that was used to vastly increase federal power. In fact, it was prepared in complete secrecy behind locked doors, with armed guards for security during the process. Given that the members of the constitutional convention were drafting what is now referred to as the “law of the land,” a completely new governing system, the total secrecy and reasons given for that secrecy have never proved valid in my opinion.

Lies Cannot Hide the Dark Side of Reality

September 1, 2018

John McCain died Saturday, August 25, 2018. As expected, he is being lauded as a great American hero, is being called a special man, and being praised for his exemplary service to his country. More accolades are forthcoming, and the praise for this man coming out of Washington DC and its complicit media is rather sickening. In many cases, it is coming from the mouths of very suspect and evil political players. This is reprehensible.
Sometimes the truth hurts, but the truth is what matters the most. That is why it is of such great importance for all of us. Hiding from reality is not only shirking responsibility, but can be very harmful to what is right and just.
So who was John McCain? Most know the McCain portrayed by the media;

“All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.” ~Benito Mussolini
Mussolini was not the originator of hatred of free markets and laissez faire, or of Fascism, a description more suited to Thomas Carlyle, but he was certainly the true father of Fascism. His ideology and opinions are key in any effort to understand real Fascism, the embodiment of the current U.S. political system.
The United States of America, regardless of the misguided belief by the masses that this is the land of the free, is undeniably by strict political definition, a Fascist oligarchy. Yes, there are some aspects of democracy, socialism, communism, and Marxism, but Fascism by the few is the ruling political ideology of today’s America.
