What Is Left To Be Trusted?

What we read?
What we hear?
What we see?

When we can only trust that which is without question,
know then what is true – and what is to be believed.
When there is nothing left but undoubted answers,
all that will remain is what was written to follow.

Sing me a song, you’re a singer
Do me a wrong, you’re a bringer of evil
The Devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you’re a taker
So it’s on and on and on, it’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
The lover of life’s not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
the sooner you’ll know that you’re dreaming
So it’s on and on and on, oh it’s on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell, fool, fool!
Well if it seems to be real, it’s illusion
For every moment of truth, there’s confusion in life
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
And it’s on and on, on and on and on….
They say that life’s a carousel
Spinning fast, you’ve got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they’ll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh no!
Fool, fool!
You’ve got to bleed for the dancer!
Fool, fool!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!

An Open Letter to Google/YouTube

August 4, 2017

(Attn: legal@support.youtube.com)

Censored, Blocked, and Banned: An Open Letter to Google/YouTube
(Censorship: Google Bans and First Draft Coalition[s])

My account, (Verified Channel) WindHarps (which has been online since September of 2007), is in Good Standing (0 copyright strikes/0 Community Guidelines strikes).  Moreover, the entire channel and all uploaded videos reflect dedication, inspiration, and devotion to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  Yet, it is essentially Blocked, overall. For instance, my most recent/Featured video (I’ve Been) Searchin’ So Long: Chicago (Rains) has been locked at 522 visits for two months – even though it is known, for a Fact, that various friends from other blogs, social sites, and personal relationships have been visiting/watching.  Further, in total relation, virtually every video at WindHarps Videos has experienced or witnessed an abrupt, absolute cessation of (Counted/Analytic) views during the same period.

Crucially revealing, this has happened numerous times over the last ten years – which also resulted in various (similar) letters sent to you via Fax, Email, and Feedback.

Why?  Do you have a problem with individuals who focus on God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit?  But no, since there are so many others who succeed on YouTube in the same vein it must not be that (as a core).  Is it something else, like Politics (past and present)?  Is it because of a ceasing of Advertising ($pending money) through AdWords for promotion?  Is it connected to the First Draft Coalition? Or, is it all (Holy Trinity, Politics, and Censorship) working together?

Whatever your (actual) reasons, a Resolution is sought – without my offering any compromises to permanent values or dedications.  The WindHarps channel and all related videos can be Unblocked and/or taken out of purposely effective obscurity (manually relegating content to pages 172, for example) should you choose, altruistically (as a matter of what is simply righteous – even in business models), or just technically (as a matter of the least levels – of business ethics).

(These factual statements have also be sent by way of Feedback).
Finally, forward this communication to any appropriate departments.

Addendum: How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet
to Manipulate,
Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction.

[O]ur NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, . . . and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

In fact, the discussion of many of these techniques occurs in the context of using them in lieu of “traditional law enforcement” against people suspected (but not charged or convicted) of ordinary crimes or . . . those who use online protest activity for political ends.  The title page of one of these documents reflects the agency’s own awareness that it is “pushing the boundaries” by using “cyber offensive” techniques against people who have nothing to do with terrorism or national security threats.

The broader point is that . . . these surveillance agencies have vested themselves with the power to deliberately ruin people’s reputations. . . .

[This] amounts to targeting citizens for expressing their political beliefs, resulting in the stifling of legitimate dissent.

Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations.”  Who would possibly trust a government to exercise these powers at all, let alone do so in secret, with virtually no oversight, and outside of any cognizable legal framework? : “Strategic Influence and Disruption.”

Whatever else is true, no government should be able to engage in these tactics.

Spies Seek to Control the Internet

The ability to manipulate the results of online polls, artificially inflate pageview counts on web sites, “amplif[y]” sanctioned messages on YouTube, and Censor Video Content judged to be “extremist.”  “Ability to artificially increase traffic to a website” (GATEWAY) and “ability to inflate page views on websites” (SLIPSTREAM).  “Amplification of a given message, normally video, on popular multimedia websites (Youtube)” (GESTATOR).  (As evidenced, “Censor[ing]”/blocking is often explicit, in reality).

GCHQ has Tools to Manipulate Online Information

Capabilities to boost views of YouTube videos, or to boost the circulation of particular messages are also detailed.

Snowden Docs Reveal Spies Snooped on YouTube and Facebook

The government can tap into the cables carrying the world’s web traffic at will and spy on what people are doing on some of the world’s most popular social media sites, including YouTube.  British cyber spies demonstrated a pilot program to their U.S. partners in 2012 in which they were able to monitor YouTube in real time and collect addresses. Called “Psychology A New Kind of SIGDEV” (Signals Development), the presentation includes a section that spells out “Broad real-time monitoring of online activity” of YouTube videos, URLs “liked” on Facebook, and Blogspot/Blogger visits.  The monitoring program is called “Squeaky Dolphin.”  “Governments have no business knowing which YouTube videos everyone in the world is watching.”

In their own image,
Their world is fashioned.
No wonder they don’t understand.
Science, like nature,
Must also be tamed
With a view towards its preservation.
Given the same
State of integrity,
It will surely serve us well.
Art as expression,
Not as market campaigns
Will still capture our imaginations.
Given the same
State of integrity,
It will surely help us along.
The most endangered species,
The honest man,
Will still survive annihilation.
Forming a world
State of integrity,
Sensitive, open and strong.
Wave after wave will flow with the tide, and bury the world as it does.
Tide after tide will flow and recede, leaving life to go on as it was. . . .


A Sign of the Times: Biblical Values (Sold Out)

November 5, 2012

Yes, we are at a “crossroads.”

At this critical point in history, where corporate/moneyed elites have purposely led us to a brink and are taking every deceitful measure to take us further (as a means to reshape the world, pre-FDR, etc.), this (Ad Campaign) is, indeed, a definitive sign of the times.

Biblical Values or Elite Principles?

“Biblical Values”?

To see Billy Graham on the stage siding and colluding with Romney (thus all relating destructive ideology) in the name of Christianity – Jesus – God is to see weakened flocks (beaten down in relentless measures) sold into present markets via modern marketing pens –
as Jesus’ main focuses (New Testaments) are sullied to extremes.

“Biblical Principles”?

Matthew 21:12 
Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying
and selling there.  He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.

They have been there (here) since antiquity, those who purport to know the Spirit (and its callings) – while leading/swaying from the most advantageous pinnacles.  And, since then, a message of warning has exclaimed: “they are not to be followed, for all who are led by them will only be drawn into ever-barren deserts – as pawns to be used for digging their sand.”

Billy Graham: “I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles. . . .”

Romney: They “believe the Kingdom of God will arise from . . . a political figure who will also be their spiritual leader.  They believe there will be a one-world government ruled by this god-king.  He will be a prophet and high priest of the Mormon faith, ruling the world from America.”

Matthew 10:16 
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves.
Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Those who refuse to listen, in (corrective) guidance, will never hear.  Those who are assured of their sight, in spite of what is alternatively shown, will remain blind.  And, many of the same will speak (preach) of God’s intentions, while never having served, heard, or met His Spirit – thus their words (and directions) should be (and will be) discarded.


The Crest of Hope

August 13, 2012

[May, 1998]

In nativity,
Hope clings to safety;
Its Lifeline is a chord, bedded and awash by the sea.
Without projection,
A Drifting eludes the tides of uncertainty.
In Creativity,
Hope floats, surfaces –
As Uprising floods draw near.
The womb is abandoned –
As the Creator’s thirst overwhelms fear.
Here,
Through affirming admissions,
When Fluid,
When Faith guides –
Hope labors, then delivers ascension.
Follow.
Let it Breathe.
These sails swell with Awakenings.
What is possible when One Believes?
Nature.
Nurture.
Horizons rain possibilities.
The cresting waves may set us Free?
If cast aside,
A veiled anchor drags the Radiance
With the depths of dormancy.
To be drenched in the Rapture of Reality –
Or to be dry with bitter complacency.
Another time?
Another life?
Maybe?

Reflections: Rich Passages Through Needles

August 5, 2012

(Romney’s Gods Problem)

Matthew 19:24
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

The key is a question: Why?  Without understanding why (where various paths are available for realization), one may acknowledge this passage, yet, never actually care about, or learn (or live) the message – as (a cored) truth.  Thus, for most of them, those who do not righteously seek, and those whose silver-spooned existence since birth has deprived (both by choice and obscured nature) even their imaginations of what the burdens are, of what those burdens lead to for the poor, their paths are essentially predestined in opposition – to discovery, to the answers.

In further exemplification, the latter denials (still) serve to fulfill the most destructive self-serving delusions (and repercussions):

Matthew 21:12-13
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all
them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew
the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them
that sold doves,
And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called
the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

In the present, a rich” “den of thieves” persists in maliciously premeditated mockery – but not only in “house[s] of prayer”; for now, their soullessly hoaxed ideology (as if a religion in itself) has been firmly planted (“that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”) in media and coordinated governmental campaigns worldwide.  To them, as they believe, their time has come.  To those on the outside (of earthly mansions), watching, suffering, and rising (spiritually), many know that this very history was written of – thousands of years ago.  While witnessing the onslaught, their beliefs and convictions (in sacred justifications) will also never falter through these prophesied progressions: out of great tribulation,”  “Here is the patience and the faith” – “in their foreheads” (though, at certain times of calling and duty, also written on their sleeves).

Desperate Man Commits Suicide After Shocking Foreclosure Mistreatment

“Here’s the shocker: right at the start the Rousseaus came up with proof that the bank had received the payment and had cashed the check.”

Here’s the Truth: these mafia-type actions are nationwide business models, systematic, institutionalized (“like an assembly line”), and robo-signed (with ENRONish smiles: “Screw grandma, we’re getting that house.”).

Imagine if the same method had been applied to Norman Rousseau over a car loan.  Aside from the constantly modified interest rates and incessant fee scams, down to the last eight months of payments everything was spot on from Normon: never missed a payment/never late/always had “proof.”  Then, out of something planned, everything just kept, somehow, going wrong – for him.

First, the “bank misapplied [his] payment.”  Next, the bank lost (shredded) a payment – three times in the last eight months of the loan.  Then, the bank continued losing (shredding) every element of Normon’s “proof”: the cashier’s check receipts, certified mail from him with returned signatures from them, certified mail from even his attorney, documentation that they were cashing the checks, and so on (“like an assembly line”).  Finally (in the process), the bank started sending out repossession trucks.  Norman screamed to many authorities, local, state, and national: “Will anyone help me?  This is an outright scam!  I am being robbed!  This is like the mafia!  I have ‘proof!’”

But, no one stepped forward who could help – because the systematic actions were blind-eyed and covered – all the way to the White House.

Yes, that would be one level of nationwide (wink-wink) fraud.  Yet, we are talking about millions of people’s actual houses/homes.

Remember Dimitris Christoulas?  Remember this Buddhist?

At some critical juncture, during all of the manufactured crises, may as many as possible have finally seen, realized, and experienced – enough.

Foreclosure Fraud?  Obama Looks Forward

And when President Obama turned to Larry Summers and his apprentice Timothy Geithner and other Wall Street hacks to manage his economic team, it showed that “Hope” and “Change” really meant “Business As Usual.”


Solidarity: #Occupy Wall Street – Everywhere

October 15, 2011

Jubilant protestors react to the news that Bloomberg backed down (at least temporarily) in their fight to continue the OCCUPY WALL STREET! movement (with a base at Zuccotti/Liberty Park).  “Sanitation” was a blatant ruse Hosni Mubarak would have used (and everyone knew it):

When the Tahir Square protest took place in Egypt, the (eventual) supporting cry was (in essence) “We are all Egyptians now!”  When Americans/U.S. citizens decide to “Walk Like an Egyptian,” it’s time to blanket the media outlets with paid-off hacks/actors like Erin Burnett (“Seriously”: CNN/Fox = same) and Rep. Peter King (“Do Not Allow Any Legitimacy For Wall Street Protests, Or It Will Be Like 1960s Again”), then follow that up with an excuse via NY (billionaire) Mayor ( “Trying to Destroy Jobs”) Bloomberg to Sanitize the park — in order to shut out/down their “Walk.”  The world (and beyond) has been watching all of the revealing actions.

Re: “Does anyone know . . . how they ARE managing sanitation?”

Clearly, the NY protesters were, and are, “managing” the sanitation situation in an honorable fashion.  For instance, they have even coordinated their own clean up crews.  Yet, would you have asked the same question (for debate) if Hosni Mubarak had actually used the “sanitation” angle/tactic?  If he had done so, the world would have known that it was a ruse to undermine the rising protest.  That element (sanitation) is a red herring.  For curiosity, it works as a fleeting question.  But, as a focus, it only serves to fulfill the propagandistic goals of those who wanted it  (the question) to be central.  Refer to “12 Most Absurd Laws Used to Stifle the Occupy Wall St. Movement Around the Country.”  In that article you will see “measures the authorities are using to discourage, deter and crack down on peaceful protests.”  Of note, among other obvious “roadblocks,” 9) No Potties: “Occupy Dallas protesters have been walking a half-mile to use the nearest toilet since they started camping out in Pioneer Plaza because they could not afford the $1 million permit that would have allowed them to bring in a Porta-Potty.  Now, that is commitment!”

Ask yourself, is needing a $1 million permit reasonable?  Or, is it part of a blatant goal to “discourage, deter and crack down”?

Here, there is (supposed to be) a 1st Amendment: “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  When “Absurd Laws” or sabotaging “measures” are put forth in such a manner as to obviously override the latter, it is time to stand up and speak out – even more.  Further, during those times in which the clarity of the abuses (absurdity) becomes absolutely clear, it is crucial to not give validity to their methods by asking the very questions that the saboteurs provided as a means to undermine the dissenting movements.

Stand like Jesus and Gandhi.  Speak like MLK.
Walk Like An Egyptian.


Re: What Happened to Change We Can Believe In?

October 24, 2010

Re: (Frank Rich’s) What Happened to Change We Can Believe In?

Aside from midterm talking points/apologetic slants which obscure warranted levels of intense criticism (leading to actual “change”):

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . telling us to “look forward, not backward” – after instilling the “forward” as what would be on election day, instead of the opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . blocking the  release of a second set of torture photos – after promising the opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . human rights, as he continues the same abuses of his predecessor, with excuses of “possible future threats” (based on Minority Reports?), and information gleaned through torture – after inspiring a hopeful opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . bailing out Wall Street, without prompting a restoration of the Glass–Steagall Act, or providing relative relief to all the commoners who were purposely plundered – after portraying himself as a special interest opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . making secret deals with corporate executives, selling out the Public option, then signing a Mandate – after campaigning on the opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . “the dark cloud cast by” his willingness to defend extensions of unemployment checks, but not a National Jobs Program with teeth (i.e., one that is not $50 billion compared to $700 billion and loaded with even more Cheneyish tax cuts) – after attacking Bush II as his opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . failing to get his (supposed) party to use the slightest of backbones in letting the Bush II tax cuts expire for the wealthy – after guaranteeing the opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . appointing a Deficit Commission, dead-set on gutting Social Security as “austerity”/”self-sacrificing” measures (put off until December to guard the midterm results) – after championing privatization’s opposite.

“President Obama, the Rodney Dangerfield of 2010, gets no respect for” . . . refusing to implement a moratorium on foreclosures – after reams of documents and fifty state attorneys general make it certain that those Institutional denials of conspiratorial Fraud actually seal the opposite.

So, yes, within this “relentless drag on a chief executive who promised change we can believe in,” there is a “fatalistic sense that the stacked economic order that gave us the Great Recession remains not just in place but more entrenched and powerful than ever.”  And, within this environment, who gets “punished” “for bad behavior”?  The “Professional Left.”   But, “Should those [Other] forces prevail, an America that still hasn’t remotely recovered from the worst hard times in 70 years will end up handing over even more power to those who greased the skids.”  True, “[President Obama] sometimes looks as if he’s fronting for the industry.”  Yet, “Voters [somehow] are . . . failing to give the White House credit for its . . . successes,” and “finding it guilty of transgressions . . .” (since the “White House is hardly innocent”).  As a result, how could there be an Enthusiasm Gap?

Foreclosure Fraud? Obama Looks Forward

October 23, 2010

FDIC Called On to Put Bank of America Into Receivership

KEY: “The banks that are foreclosing on fraudulently originated mortgages frequently cannot produce legitimate documents. . . .   Now, only fraud will let them take the homes.  Many of the required documents do not exist, and those that do exist would provide proof of the fraud that was involved in loan origination, securitization, and marketing.”

It’s the ENRON Dominoes: They need to repossess – in order to cover the Total Fraud – and to keep the Fraudulent Cycle/Accounting going.

Foreclose on the Foreclosure Frauds?
(No Chance with President Obama.)

“HUD reviewed the ‘paperwork’ problem to see whether it threatened the banks – not the homeowners who were the victims of foreclosure fraud.”  “[T]he Justice Department has not convicted a single senior officer of the large nonprime lenders who directed, committed, and profited enormously from the frauds.”  “Note the language: ‘mistakes,’ ‘errors,’ ‘processes’ (following the initial use of ‘paperwork’).  No mention of ‘fraud,’ ‘felony,’ ‘criminal investigations,’ or ‘prosecutions’ for the tens of thousands of felonies that representatives of the entities foreclosing on homes have admitted that they committed.”

In short/general: What about War Crimes, torture, and worldwide fraud as perpetuated from the Oval Office?  [T]he administration is focused on ensuring future compliance, rather than on looking back.”

But, aside from particular invasions, the torture (like the other War Crimes) was purposely directed and authorized under manipulated veils – documented memos written after-the-fact, for example – as a means to achieve political goals.  Remember the Nuremberg Principles?  “[W]e have not found any evidence at this point of systemic issues in the underlying legal or other documents that have been reviewed.”

There is a volume of undeniable proof!  How could you be so acquiescent?  Don’t you understand that these repercussions will reverberate throughout history – that others will take the abuses as a model?  “When the word ‘systematic’ or ‘systemic’ is used in this context, [we are] not saying that there couldn’t be significant real problems that affect real people in a very, very real way.”

Aside from the utter lunacy and hypocrisy of those responses (which, again, undoubtedly leave us open to escalating future ramifications), will you at least do something to counter the resulting fascist state of our economy?  “This is not a problem for [us] to fix.  This is a problem for the banks and servicers to fix.  They can fix it as fast as they feel like it.”

Too Pig to Jail? Exactly.

Update (2012):And instead of really, at the heart of this, being about accountability and punishment it seems like frankly a political whitewash during an election year.  So it makes the Department of Justice look good.  It makes the attorneys general look good.  The banks are happy because they are going to get all the credit for this settlement while receiving money from the taxpayers.  Really the only big losers are the taxpayers and, of course, the homeowners.”

Boycott Google: Save Net Neutrality

August 10, 2010

Google-Verizon Pact: It Gets Worse: “The proposal is one massive loophole that sets the stage for the corporate takeover of the Internet.”

Action: Boycotts of Google’s search engine (and/or advertisements).  Pledge to use another search engine (and stick to it) from now on, until Google changes its stance.  This will take time.   But, if enough people make the move, it will get results.

Bottom line: Once again, we are being sold out — by, from, and to corporate powers.  Do you see Obama on stage making fierce pledges to save or protect Net Neutrality — no matter what?  Not a chance.  It’s the same scenario as with the Public Option.  As a result, WE have to make the difference.

Google and Verizon Attack Net Neutrality

[Remember when AOL grew so big that they felt they could get away with charging $24.95 for dial-up connection speeds – while even MSN was sticking with 21.95?  It was the beginning of the end of their dominance.  They are now a shell of what they used to be.  The script also applies here.  Google has lost touch with its core, and is selling us out.  With boycotts growing exponentially, their dominoes may also begin to fall – as they should.  Google can reverse the present course, or face the consequences of a new one.]

Do you believe in speaking Truth to Power – no matter what level of stature the powered hold?  Do you believe in Fighting the Good Fight – without backing down, regardless of the level of evil you may face?  Do you believe the First Amendment is a cornerstone of our country – and that it is on the verge of being nullified in a series of final (corporate) steps?  If so, Stand Up Now – while your Voices can still be Heard.

An Open Letter to Michael Moore

March 22, 2010

The Worst Thing About the Health Care Law That Passed?
It Bootstraps the New Homeless (An Open Letter to Michael Moore):

To Michael Moore, a (former?) champion for the commoners (03/22):

“Thanks to last night’s vote,” an Individual Mandate without even the slightest of a Public Option is a Reality.  “Thanks to last night’s vote,”
it will be a Criminal Act if we do not buy a private policy from a corporation – whether or not we can afford one.  “Thanks to last night’s vote,” during a Second Depression, we will have to spend 8% of our income toward coverage.  But, we are not allowed to call that a new TAX (for those making less than $250,000).  Yes, “It’s truly a banner day for these corporations.”  As a result, many millions of us who were cheering you on for years are wondering why you are so enthusiastic over the flogging we (regular people/progressives) suffered on Sunday evening?  This was not a “Canadian-loving,” “independent,” Victory.  As written months ago, this was something the last administration would have rammed through.  Remember those “13 problems with the current health care bills” you and Rose Ann DeMoro organized last September?  The list remains – unfulfilled.  Remember calling this bill a Joke?  It still is (while a more proper term would be “Hoax”).  What happened to you?  Is this the answer? : “Pass it because, if President Obama takes a fall on this one, I don’t know if he’ll be able to get back up.”  Now, you toe the party line — for politics’ sake?  “A good night it was — important little steps were taken to bring our country into the civilized world.”  Mr. Moore, most of the other “steps” within were not “little,” and they set us a major notch toward a total corporate state.  Is that (accepting another broad redistribution of the bootstraps-mentality for the commoners by way of fascistic coercion) what you are presently considering as necessary modes of becoming more civilized?  Before Rep. Kucinich succumbed, he also had a list:

If this is the best we can do, then our best isn’t good enough and we have to ask some hard questions about our political system: such as Health Care or Insurance Care?  Government of the people or a government of the corporations?”

As opposed to yours, his is only inches away from being fulfilled (“Thanks to last night’s vote”).

Regretfully,

Update: You and MoveOn.org are teaming up to promote “Capitalism: A Love Story.”  03/25: “MoveOn.org is launching a huge new campaign to take back democracy from the corporations and lobbyists.”

Considering the last two posts, and the timing of this letter/association, my head is still shaking.


MoveOn Sells (Us) Out (Again)

March 15, 2010

MoveOn.org organized against Rep. Kucinich.  Why?  Because he [was] standing up to this administration’s/the corporate democrats’ insurance company giveaway (unneeded bailout).  View “Is This The Best We Can Do?” – and, remember the following statement, for it is one which should ring in every American’s ears: “If a mandate was a solution, we could try that to solve homelessness by mandating everyone buy a house.”

MoveOn allied itself with a (sold out) center (NDC) – so far to the right that it would be considered republican/conservative in the year 1996.  They are now agents/actors of/for the elite establishment (status quo).  Any waves their organization purports to make will henceforth be highly projected – yet, only result in ripples (as intended).  MoveOn asked ‘Which Side of History Will You Be On?‘  We responded: “May as many members of that organization as possible wake up to what this revealed, then renounce their associations – in Droves.”  “Kucinich [wasn’t] holding out for a boondoggle, or a minority vendetta.  He [was] staking a claim for a policy most people [wanted]” [the Public Option].  If a majority of the Majority had as much spine . . . ?

(The same reactions apply to any of the other groups who threatened those of us who were fighting against this Health Care Sham.)

Update (it’s over): On 03/17, Rep. Kucinich’s switch marked the end.  There will be an Individual Mandatewithout a Public Option.  We supported people like him and Sen. Sanders for standing out.  They failed us by not following through.  Soon, people “will be herded like rebellious cattle into a ‘mandated’ slaughter by way of corporate pens (Policies).”

POLITICS (The Democrats Need to Call This a WIN!):
Dennis Kucinich: “We have to be very careful that the potential of President Obama’s presidency not be destroyed by this debate.  And I feel, even though I have many differences with him on policy [Ring a bell? :  “Policy Differences“], there’s something much bigger at stake here for America.”

POLITICS (The Democrats Need to Call This a WIN!):
(Even) Michael Moore: “Within days, the House of Representatives will vote to pass the Senate health care ‘reform’ bill.  This bill is a joke.  It has NOTHING to do with ‘health care reform.’  It has EVERYTHING to do with lining the pockets of the health insurance industry.  It forces, by law, every American who isn’t old or destitute to buy health insurance if their boss doesn’t provide it.  What company wouldn’t love the government forcing the public to buy that company’s product?!”  Yet, “Pass it because, if President Obama takes a fall on this one, I don’t know if he’ll be able to get back up.”

Again: Let us not accept pure spin, while we’re being sold out, as
“the good.”  Let us not forget that what was absolutely possible –
in a present tense, is now referred to as “the perfect” –
in a past tense.

Update II (Hidden Reality Confirmation):
NY Times Reporter Confirms Obama Made Deal to Kill Public Option

Response to Miles Mogulescu: Your work reveals what should be Front Page news, nationwide – resulting in a long-term scandalous exposition.  Yet, of course, it won’t.  Since the Reagan era, objectively independent and investigatory journalism has been erased so far from the mainstream that the few controlling conglomerates would finally proclaim victory, openly – if the internet (and alternative venues like Democracy Now) were somehow quelled.  This confirmation of another grand, secret deal (in a series) exposes the sheer level to which the public was “bamboozled” and “punked.”  On stage: “I’m a champion for the common people.  Corporations, lobbyists, and power brokers will not tell me what to do.”  Backstage: “Ladies and gentlemen (of the corporations, lobbyists, and power brokers), tell me what you are wanting to do.  Then, after a selling period (mixed with some populist posturing) I will make that happen.”  Norman Solomon, Zero Public Option + One Mandate = Disaster: “a stunning, deeply structural transfer of humongous power and wealth that would greatly boost the leverage of an already autocratic corporate state.”  Exactly.


God Speaks to Palin (Without Notes on Hand)

March 8, 2010

Palin: “Regarding the notes on my hand, and whether or not it revealed my true level of, uh, what’s that word (?) . . . intellect (!), at first, ‘I didn’t really have a good answer, as so often – is me’ (ya know, muttonhead, etc.).”  “But then somebody sent me the other day, Isaiah 49:16. . . .”  “Eureka!  Obviously, God had to write on His hands, as well!  ‘I’m like’ yoo-hoo and ya betcha, what darn tootin ‘good company!'”  God (attempting to speak to her, for the first time): “Sarah, can you hear me?  Sarah?  Geez, not much going on in here.  Oh well, I’ll just speak louder and louder.  Sarah, the Bible is full of metaphorical and allegorical language.  If I said I would write your name, as well as all the names of those who actually follow me, on my forehead – do you think it would be meant literally?” Palin: “I think God just spoke to me!”  Friend: “What did He say?”  Palin: “The Bible is literal, throughout.  And, unlike 99% of others, I actually follow Him!  He even uses Post-it notes!”  God: “Note to self: Don’t get angry; think of it as trying to teach a moose.  Sarah, you missed, and twisted, the entire message.”  Palin: “He just spoke to me again!”  Friend: “Really?”  Palin: “Something like the Beatitudes were twisted as progressive messages – that we missed Jesus’ neoconservative intent.  We should look to Glenn Beck for an update!”  God: “I don’t think I could get through to this one with a follow the bouncing ball teleprompter.”

God Does It!

[Update: God: “The next time I send you back there, maybe you’ll get a life (with a clue).”
Sarah Palin: “Don’t Retreat, InsteadRELOAD!

Sarah Palin: “Ya betcha (wink)!”
God: If this one becomes president, I may initiate the Second Coming.”]


Free Speech for People – Not Corporations

January 21, 2010

Free Speech for People

“On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations are entitled to spend unlimited funds in our elections.  The First Amendment was never intended to protect corporations.  This cannot stand.  Sign up to protest this decision and protect our democracy!

Free speech is for people — not corporations.”

Greg Palast: “Would . . .  Chinese landlords have an interest in buying the White House for an opponent of government spending such as Gov. Palin?  Ya betcha!

Thom Hartmann: “Benito Mussolini invented a new form of government where corporations ran the government – he called it ‘fascism.‘”

Keith Olbermann: U.S. Government for Sale:

Murray Hill Incorporated is Running for Congress

National March For Campaign Finance Reform

SCOTUS: Justice Stevens’ Dissenting Opinion

Move to Amend Petition


U.S. Media: Palinesqued Into A Current Affair

November 23, 2009

Frank Rich reflects on a bandwagon: “Palin is far and away the most important brand in American politics after Barack Obama, and attention must be paid.  Those who wishfully think her 15 minutes are up are deluding themselves.”  She may be a “brand,” but the issue is a relating nationwide scam – crammed down our throats and forced into our eyes at every turn.  How could those “15 minutes” ever end when the dominant media serves to propagate this joke upon us as if they have no journalistic responsibility regarding the credibility of a subject being reported on?  According to Bob Cesca, it’s a (hidden) reality show.  Media Matters for America’s Jamison Foser tagged it as an infomercial (without notice).  Yet, our Secretary of State bowed down to what is actually a puppeted clown by stating that she is open to having coffee with her.  In doing so, legitimacy was bestowed – needlessly and shamefully.  Palin is not an elected official.  She is a propped-up, talking points, mouthpiece-for-conservative-propaganda Celebrity.  Stages given to her for voicing opinions on foreign policy, or any substantive issue, are ultimately insulting to all who are trapped within range of the following “news” cycle.  How could this be?  And, how could this charade continue growing?  The answer is that our prevailing media organizations, while sharing culpability with governmental desires, have sold us out – and into a land of “A Current Affair.”

Update: In public: No criticism of Limbaugh’s or Beck’s “retarded” references; absolute (staged) outrage at any Democrats who might have ignorantly used the reference.  In private: “Can we keep this soon-to-arrive baby hidden for a while?  You know, it’s just politics.  Maybe I can secretly adopt before anyone finds out?”  After birth: This is my “retarded baby.”  What does this represent?  A celebrity figure in narcissistic overdrive with political aspirations who is fully willing to use a disabled baby – as a Prop – over and over and over.  It is Greg Stillson’s character from the Dead Zone, with the story slightly altered.  In this one, Sarah Stillson makes the cover of Time, over and over and over, but, she does not end up in a lonely motel room.  She ends up, as planned,  becoming a multimillionaire through speaking engagements, which she cannot get through without crib notes on her hands (Teleprompters are off-limits because they still require focused, in-the-moment, thought – and minuscule translation/coordination).  Further, through all the covers and cover stories, she is never called out by the major media for her utterly contemptible transgressions, low-level acting abilities, or total failure in even being able to defend the very basic of scripted talking points.  Then, finally, based on the latter “objectivity,” she is able to run for the highest office on a platform to “Lift American Spirits” – fulfilling the greatest Mockumentary our country has ever been subject to.

True and Minitrue: Reality May Be Kidnapped

November 17, 2009

True and “minitrue”: For many years the public was smothered from the utmost abuses of those who wished to “doublethink” them into “perpetual” political, ideological, and spiritual wars.  A specific goal was to obfuscate reality to such a point where the common people would end up following each shifting wave – blindly.  They would be kept so caught up in manipulated emotions that fact-based/knowledge-seeking instincts would be overridden.  Thus, the targets would never discover their primary weakness, or realize a controlled blindness.  Every previous boundary of objectivity and decency would be surpassed.  Truth was to be redefined and legally-opinionated incessantly – with a premeditation toward society’s eventual acceptance of the “minitrue.”: “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.  And while you’re studying that reality . . . we’ll act again, creating other new realities. . . .  We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”  Even regarding nonpartisan issues, instead of instilling wholesome certitude and fortitude in the populace, the most obscene accusations would be imparted to incite a never-ending cycle of Fear: “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.”  Later, the evolutionary echoes continued to a crescendo: “Well, Mayor, how are you going to feel when it’s your daughter that’s kidnapped at school by a terrorist?”  And finally, it culminated in an atmosphere where, for many unknowing multitudes, their “Freedom” had indeed become their (hidden) “Slavery.”

Conservative Bible Project Cuts Out Liberal Passages: “As of 2009, there is no fully conservative translation of the Bible. . . .”  (“Liberals will oppose this effort. . . .”)  “[T]he insane hubris of this really staggers the mind.  These right-wing ideologues know better than the early church councils that canonized Scripture?”


Blessed are the Meek or To Hell With the Poor?

August 11, 2009

An Article for All Times: Is It Now a Crime to Be Poor?
“It turned out that Mr. Szekely, who is an ordained minister and does not drink, do drugs or curse in front of ladies, did indeed have a warrant — for not appearing in court to face a charge of ‘criminal trespassing’ (for sleeping on a sidewalk in a Washington suburb).  So he was dragged out of the shelter and put in jail.  ‘Can you imagine?’ asked Eric Sheptock, the homeless advocate (himself a shelter resident) who introduced me to Mr. Szekely.  ‘They arrested a homeless man in a shelter for being homeless.’”

Wholly Related: Do the crime, pay for the time, as in $90 a day
“Sheriff Joe Arpaio . . . makes prisoners sleep in tents in 100-degree-plus heat.  Earlier this year, he announced that inmates would be charged $1.25 per day for meals.  His decision followed months of food strikes staged by inmates who complained of being fed green bologna and moldy bread.”  “Sheriff Arpaio, who makes inmates wear pink underwear to increase the humiliation factor, also taps prisoner accounts.”  “The money was to be collected by seizing cash in their jail accounts or by filing lawsuits.  The proposal also would have denied parole to those who could not make payments after being freed.”  “’It makes no sense to release people with $25, a bus ticket and $40,000 in reimbursement fees,’ she said.  ‘Saddling people with thousands of dollars in debt is contradictory to helping someone become a functioning member of society.”‘


A “Godless” Jesus?

March 28, 2009

Whoever Jesus Was, He Wasn’t A Petty Partisan

Like Todd Wilkinson, many are sickened by the ongoing (and escalating) hijacking of every core precept within our originating belief system.  (Years ago, Yusuf Islam expressed the same about his.)  Current (U.S.) society is unceasingly blanketed with renewed perversions of sacred text, which seek to institutionalize Social Darwinism and Orwellianism – in Jesus’ name.  (“This is an impressive crowd, the haves and the have-mores.  Some people call you the elite.  I call you my base.” It’s not torture when we implement all the darkest historical practices.  It’s “enhanced interrogation.”)  Indeed, “they are quick to persecute those who disagree with their politically-informed interpretations of scripture,” since an exclusive agenda must be rationalized – to whatever extremes are necessary – in order that the “fittest” of the “chosen” may continue to update the rules.  In their eyes, the meek may inherit the earth, but only as tillers of the soil.  Ever-expanding lawns of heavenly mansions will need to be cultivated, and the lowest-level subjects/servants will be content – but only after they finally accept these predestined provisions.  (12/25/2009)

I’ve Been to the Mountaintop (MLK 1968):

“All we say to America is, ‘Be true to what you said on paper.’  If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over there.  But somewhere I read of the Freedom of Assembly.  Somewhere I read of the Freedom of Speech.  Somewhere I read of the Freedom of the Press.  Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the Right to Protest – for Right.”
