Joe Biden admits he’s Republican

JOE BIDEN thinks he can sway voters by saying he’d consider a Republican as his vice-presidential pick. Then he explained about choosing a running mate: “W盈彩彩票ver I would pick, were I fortunate enough to be your nominee, I’d pick someone who was simpatico with me, who knew… what my priorities were and knew what I wanted to do. We could disagree on tactic, but strategically we’d have to be on the exact same page.”
 
How’s that for truth in advertising? Biden thinks he might be on the exact same page as what’s supposed to be the other party. HA.

Just when you’ve supposedly seen it all… yes, it’s Trump again.

This will make the Alt-White people scream like a monkey being sodomized with a shovel. It’s like constipation… ‘No Shit’ I’ve a feverish imagination but don’t inflict it on civilians. I couldn’t make this up if I dropped all my scruples. And took a bunch of drugs. He said it while looking around at the California Fires, the parts where he could stand without being incinerated. Which begs the question, why is this bastard not in a cell awaiting justice? The guy contracted AT GOVERNMENT EXPENSE (taxpayers, not tax and draft dodgers like You Know Who…) to build a ‘resort’ meaning ‘casino’ in Puerto Rico and couldn’t complete the task. Now, I know he didn’t ever put his tiny hands to shovel, hammer or military rifle but he was The Leader/Boss whatever excuses for himself getting more money from ‘his’ projects than all the people who DID work on ‘his’ projects… Come on, this guy went bankrupt on CASINOS which are infamous for getting the last laugh consistently. Does any sane person really believe he should be allowed to give his infamous s..t midas touch to all life on our increasingly fragile world? it ties in neatly with the following paragraph.

And in the past month he ordered the BLM to give federal lands to ‘energy’ meaning ONLY fossil fuels. What was quietly not discussed was and still is giving all the Tribal water rights, ordered by the Supreme Court when Roosevelt was president, as being the right and first consideration to the Tribes… 110 years ago and that’s Teddy Roosevelt. So the Natives and everybody in America gets to drink mining and oil company waste forever.

Trump has crossed a line I would never have thought possible. I could expect and explain it if what was tweeted had been said by somebody in the terminal stages of alcoholism.

Hamilton the Musical lionizes the real Benedict Arnold of the Am. Revolution

盈彩彩票USA currency heros and villain
OUR GUILDED AGE OF GREED AND NARCISSISM is naturally going to recast Alexander Hamilton in a heroic light. Though he adorns the ten dollar bill, Hamilton was neither a president nor a founding father. The first secretary of the treasury was rather the nation’s founding banker. Not a Mr. Drysdale safe deposit banker, its loan officer.

Hamilton believed the nation’s currency should belong to a private bank and be loaned to the public, at interest, compounded so the debt could never be paid off.

Every schoolchild knows Jefferson hated Hamilton but the reason was always obfuscated by federalist triviality. In fact Jefferson believed the fruit of a nation’s productivity was supposed to be distributed to the people. Hamilton insisted it go to a bank which need share only the crumbs.

Hamilton the Rat Bastard betrayed America’s founding fathers who sought to escape the Bank of England’s talons. Its loans were not only usurious, the bank’s discretion to expand or restrict credit enabled it to create financial crashes so as to seize the public assets proferred as collateral. Though the original colonies had benefited by printing their own currency in the past, Hamilton convinced George Washington that instead of the nation printing its own currency, a bank should do it, so the 100% profit of printing money could be spread among private shareholders, not the American public or their legislature.

Any schoolchild could grasp the unfairness of the contract which Hamilton imposed on what would have been a prosperous people. The national debt is still binding today. Its abolition and everyone’s emancipation could be just one big school walkout away.

Hence the constant indoctrination.

That’s what makes Hamilton: an American Musical all the more pernicious. Because it’s aimed at children. Its theme of How History Will Remember You is an ode to infantile angst, while obviously innoculating their childish allegiance to mature scrutiny. Hamilton is High School Musical league, with the pretense of being historical. Parents are agog because they think there’s substance behind the interracial rap voguing and vapid graphic novel dialog. It’s the same excitement parents showed for Harry Potter Middle Earthian dreck because at least the kids are reading.

Before the revolution the American colonies prospered with their own currency. Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson visited England and saw the poverty and squalor where they expected to see the shared bounty of the world’s most powerful empire. The “Bank of England” was sucking England’s economy dry and soon a law was passed to mandate that the colonies subjugate themselves to the same perpetual loans. That’s what prompted the American War of Independence. The Tea Tax and No Taxation Without Representation are perfidy. Why is school-taught history so boring? Because it’s a fabrication to hide the truth.

Jefferson, Franklin, and Madison opposed the yoke of debt slavery, while Hamilton’s cohorts and banking agents kept reimposing it. When President Andrew Jackson paid off the national debt in full, he bankrupted the bankers! Abraham Lincoln paid for the War of Rebellion by printing Greenbacks. Their success was sabotaged by the banks and international finance got its hooks in again.

What an odd coincidence that the portraits of each of those foes of national debt, depicted on US currency denominations, face the same direction, while the Arnold of all Benedicts grins back at them.

Today kids are learning a valuabe civics lesson. Government won’t do anything for people, without a gun to its head.

盈彩彩票OH THE IRONY. But Poe’s Law probably governs in high schools too. For the same reason irony doesn’t compute on social media: adolescent frontal lobes.

I don’t have much use for guns myself, but it’s obvious to me that when the corporate media gets behind a public issue like gun control, it can’t be in the people’s interest. AT ALL. Since when have even Big Dems supported anything righteous?

The news usually blacks out calls for social reform. Unless it’s the common people you’re asking to disempower, not corporate hegemony. Today the press is platforming the protests with live feeds and biographical highlights of the youthful petitioners. This is MANUFACTURED DISSENT. Nickelodeon suspended its television programming to accommodate, in essence, a protracted commercial break. A young person’s choice to “walk out” from school today is not rebellion, it’s conformity. To the astroturf. Get a load of the profiling of the Florida students, portrayed as movement organizers! Their role more resembles contestants for America’s Got Talent: the Protest Edition.

The #March14 school walkouts across the country only confirm the mendacious education our children are getting.

Gee kids, when you graduate, to no job, no health care, no environmental protections, no economic rights, maybe even no 盈彩彩票, AND a leveled playing field of NO PRIVILEGE for any of you, you kids are going to need guns.

Saudi ruler of impoverished tribal lands won’t share oil riches with own cousins

Saudi Arabia is a land of abject poverty, dominated by whichever tribal warlord claimed to hold the deed when the British started tapping it for oil. While the common inhabitants are subjugated under crushing poverty, fundamentalist Islam, and repressive injustice punctuated with beheadings, Saudi “royals” require gold plated escalators to descend from their jet planes. Now the “crown prince”, dubbed MbS, is consolidating power by arresting his fellow royal billionaires, accusing them of corruption. Isn’t that rich? Corruption defines feudal kleptocracy. As supplies of oil near their end, the robber barons get ever greedy about the last drop. Did you wonder why the Al Saud windfall wasn’t shared with the poor? Now they want to cut out their own relatives. No honor among thieves. Thereby settling the oxymoron of Saudi nobility.

Syria neoliberal invasion ad campaign casts chicks with guns but no helmets

THAT’S RICH. When they’re not bombarding western viewers with contrived photo-ops of camera-facing toddlers, victimized by Asad’s bombs never ours, the neoliberal propagandists are fishing for left-leaning sympathies with “Freedom Fighters” who Americans could not should not leave behind. Meet the West’s own Femen ForWar, Kurdish anarchist insurgents, one even dubbed “Angelina Jolie”, who are photographed in action, with wide smiles in sniper’s nests, looking like they’re otherwise hanging in 盈彩彩票room detention. I’m surprised we never see the lighting crews or makeup artists reflected in the shattered glass, but what we don’t see in plain sight are HELMETS. Apparently only real soldiers need those.
 
There’s even a Chicks-with-Guns meme gone viral of a bareheaded Freedom Fighter breaking into a huge grin after narrowly escaping a sniper’s bullet. One man’s insurgent is another man’s freedom fighter. Western media’s freedom fighters are your Freedom Fries.

Five former leaders of the free world say YOU should pay for disaster relief

盈彩彩票Presidents Carter, Clinton, Obama, Bush, and Bush
THAT’S RIGHT. Five US ex-presidents, so-called most powerful men in the world, who each did their most to expropriate the public wealth for the super rich, who denied you healthcare, job security, infrastructure, a clean environment, even peace, every last POTUS son of a bitch, now think the rescue of America’s refinery capitol should be at your expense. Never mind that your taxes will already pay to rebuild Houston. These still-shilling salesmen-in-chief want whatever extra they can squeeze out of the American little person in the name of Christian Charity.

POW-MIA. Not forgotten or forgiven.

The POW-MIA flag used to represent a renegade popular sentiment that our military wasn’t taking seriously the American soldiers left behind in Vietnam. Now the same flag flies from the flapoles of federal buildings like VA facilities. I think the cultural fixation on foresaken warriors is a Freudian reflection of our nation’s moral conscience. Indead our better self is a Prisoner Of War. Likewise Missing In Action. America you ARE forgotten, and I’ll add not forgiven.

“On Saturday, your state will march for truth” says the invite. Hahaha SO true.

盈彩彩票What’s wrong with protests being mobilized to demand transparency and full investigations into government misconduct? At face value, this weekend’s March For Truth seems like a perfectly earnest response, much like the March For Science sought to highlight public disdain for policies that deny scientific knowledge. Except the “truth” these organizers are trying to galvanize presumes to demonize Russia as perennial adversary and reboot the Cold War. This “truth” aims to differentiate itself from the “fake news” as the pot innoculates itself from Kettle Black. This is pro-war propaganda trying to pass as grassroots consensus, to out-truth the Truthers. The problem with Democrats steering grassroots protests is that they are the corporate war machine. The 2016 election transplanted the machine’s figurehead with that of a DOOFUS. But Trump is too much dilettante berzerker for practical purposes. Now warmonger propagandists have to work extra hard to manufacture public consent. Weekend marches are being mobilized in every state, as they say, but indeed on Saturday the STATE is marching to trademark TRUTH, to march Americans off to war with Putin to continue to destabilize the Middle East. Real truth would lead a populace to peace, not war. This is a Democratic Party march for propaganda.

Obama presidential library won’t even be a library. It’s a $500M thumbdrive.

HAHA Barack Obama’s proposed presidential library, which will 1) eat into valuable Chicago open space, 2) cost $500 million, and 3) close a major commuter thoroughfare, won’t even be a library! Obama’s presidential papers will be stored elsewhere; his commemorative library will only offer digital access to his records. That’s essentially what you can do from 盈彩彩票. Hey Obama, check out the internet!

Smokey Bear wants to prevent fires, does he belong to your resistance?

盈彩彩票So there’s a t-shirt being pitched by the alt-mod-left, who want to coopt the anti-Trump rallying cry RESIST. It’s Smokey Bear with his head down and fist raised, invoking the Black Panther salute made iconic at the 1968 olympics. Except his fist is on FIRE, and it’s Smokey. WTF. Is he resisting putting it out? Smokey Bear’s singular catch-phrase is about YOU, PREVENTING FIRES. As usual, he’s holding a shovel, a reminder that fighting forest fires is essentially ditch-digging. So what is Smokey resisting? The urge to douse the fire burning up his hand? The image reminds me of the innanity of moderate democrats. Both “Smokey” and “Bear” have long become euphemisms for cops. This Smokey wants to embed with your resistance crew. Knock him out with a shovel.

Fukishima aka Japan’s Chenyobl… and what does it mean for Colorado?

Well, it’s heating up. With the easiest way to measure and describe “radiation” : Heat. Temperature. Caloric Index. Right now it’s at the level to actually light concrete on fire. I was going to subtitle The Japan Syndrome but that whole China盈彩彩票 Syndrome schtick is outdated by several decades. Melt a hole through to China盈彩彩票, yeah. So I restrained myself from including it. There’s amerikkka’s very own ticking time bomb right outside of Dallas. At Glen Rose. You might say, as I sometimes do when I forget to use quantum logic, you know, the core of any unit of mass, time, space and energy being at the same place at the same time (it just seems redundant) and to mangle a line from Huxley, everything belongs to everything else. But I digress. The fastest shorcut not involving quantum theory is there are no significant mountains between here and there. The Rolling Hills, the exact name thereof, is where the reactor is, at Comanche Peak. If you go southwest you have Ranger Peak, the highest geologic feature in Texas east of the Pecos and named after the Texas Rangers, cops not baseball, had an incident with the Comanches in which for a change didn’t involve getting the Rangers slaughtered. They’re not as bad-ass as they portray themselves. And that’s not in the way. The Llano Estacado, “Staked Plains” but they’re no barrier. Maybe for riding a horse or walking, but for airborne fallout, nah. And Comanche Peak has started experiencing seismic events. This was discussed when several events happened, Haiti, Fukishima, Deepwater Horizon,and the Upper Big Branch Corporate Mass Murder of 29 miners. All of which, including the Comanche Peak reactor, have ties to Halliburton, Bush and Donald Trump, the Koch family and the Corporate Big Pigs are talking much smack about releasing all of these bastards from the fetters of “unwarranted safety regulations” including and especially for the Fracking companies… who apparently broke the substrate in North Central Texas to the point there is measurable and sometimes palpable (no need to get out your dictionary it’s “able to be felt by the human body”) earthquake activity all over North Texas. Which the Frackers say is impossible. They simply have to lie.

And their Big Pig comrades like Trump and Don Blankenship and Bush and Cheney and Perry and Doug Lamborn and basically their entire rat-bastard families tell us that it’s none of our business and included in the proposed destruction of all regulatory measures, they’ll have police and courts prosecuting and imprisoning citizens who dare ask for details of what is done to our water, air, basic ability to walk outside without getting radiation poisoning… Just like they’ve been doing, essentially, only now it’s on the way to being official. We’ll be prosecuted for exposing or trying to expose THEIR crimes. They all try to act all “tough” and “macho” about it but they’re essentially coward bitches who hide behind the Peasant Army and the fascist police and courts.

The richest bitches in America are poised to make it illegal to even ask for information on the pollution they’re spreading into our air soil and water. Deregulation, it’s called. While Fukeshima burns, and everywhere between Comanche Peak to Cheyenne Mountain is about to become an uninhabitable desert for millions of years. All to make a profit for them.

Their deep bunkers won’t do them a bit of good either. They’ll get their Roentgens rationed and die more slowly and in a lot more pain.

That isn’t a good thing, because we’ll be subjected to it too.

While I’m in a corrective mood, you might have noticed that I have different spellings for the Russian (Ukrainian)  and Japanese reactors because they’re not english words and you get to read it as phonetics, you lucky persons you. The alternative option is to learn Japanese and Russian. Which I haven’t.

Political transparency is for meddlers

Vladimir Putin apparently hacked the presidential election. So say intelligence pundits estranged by Tump’s Washington brain-trust transplant. True or not, what they’re saying is that bringing transparency to the election process and the behind the scenes emails which affirm its undemocratic nature, is meddling. What a laugh to hear DNC operatives say they feel “sucker-punched” that their off-the-record slurs of condescention were made public. And of course of meddling in another country’s elections.

Yeah, so if Aleppo is Syria’s Stalingrad, which are the Nazis beating a retreat?

The West’s covert proxy insurgency against Syria has suffered a major defeat in Aleppo. Social media is deluged now with cries for help, “this may be the last you hear from me” being the latest meme to drum up popular support for increased military intervention. Aleppo is being compared to Stalingrad. Funny, because the Nazis famously lost their attempt to take that from Russia. What a delicious bit of irony that. Cities ravaged by bitter urban warfare have plenty of antecedents. I suspect corporate journalists suppose their readers are as historically illiterate as they. Stalingrad was a reversal or fortune and that’s what the US war machine hopes to make of Aleppo. Our human shields are crying their hearts out online, stuck where we put them, on our firing line. As refugees, we don’t want them. The humanitarian disaster is our creation. US covert ops out of Syria! US covert bloggers out of Syria! You want to help the children of Aleppo? Adopt them. It’s the least you should do after getting their parents and siblings killed as your human shields.

A gratuitous snarky product review.

Google, who invade every part of your computers and shopping and personal behavior and then sell it to whichever government or other corporation who has the bread to buy it, has a new version of Geany or Siri which controls Every FUCKING Bit Of Your Life if you buy it. It also costs you a hundred bux real yankee money. Say what? You don’t have any profit of your own for giving the data somebody sinister, anonymous far more efficiently than the Anonymous movement.. is PAYING Google for YOUR data which YOU not only provided for free but actually PAID Google for the privilege of Making More Money For Google?
If you’re especially wealthy and pay even more for Google to NOT sell your data to anybody except for some government or other corporation who can over-ride the agreement (hereafter referred to as “blackmail”) to just anybody Google decides is worthy of YOUR private information.
Sideways talking Yoda-wise am I, but surprised seriously sold life of yours has been by Google?

Further, and this is creepy beyond belief, unless you’re granted the gift to figure this or believe somebody you may or not trust. But if you try to contact Google Help you get shunted to a forum of peers, and the ones who are supposedly expert in diagnosing problems with YouTube or Facebook etc…
admittedly (by the same experts) are volunteers. So, in real English, that means Google, arguably the richest corporation In The World, doesn’t actually PAY their workers. Between that and selling the personal data of everybody who uses any of their services, especially the ones for “free” that would explain why they’re so rich. I mean, sell data they didn’t generate or buy from anybody, and have millions (Maybe) of the software version of Unpaid Slaves doing all the maintenance … a Virtual Reality Sweatshop…

Then, there’s (you can find this on a Google Forums thread called “Fuck Google”, go ahead… google it)
a small group of people who write english with a slighly Indus Valley flavor, and only one name apiece, and can all be contacted 24 hours a day. Seriously. That’s the claim they make. I guess their brief moments not chained to their computers would be spent in meditation on the Great and Wonderful Google ohmm ohmmm ohhmmmmm…

On the other hand they’re actually computer generated personalities. Which is the probable next name for Artificial Intelligence.
If you don’t sign out entirely from say, youtube, which is no longer automatic, they took away the button that says “Sign Out” so what you do is go to your browser preferences and erase History and Cookies and be thorough about it… Because you don’t actually know which google properties don’t have the word “google” in the names… If you don’t do that you’re giving them your information Even If You Never Use Google Again…

Meanwhile, the device that’s uploading all this neat-o shit that they value enough to harvest and get all pissy about you NOT giving your data to them for free or more like YOU PAY THEM TO TAKE YOUR DATA.. Even if you don’t buy their crappy and creepy Hundred Dollar Personal Assistant Device, you bought your computer, internet connection and electricity, didn’t you? If you have a Microsoft or Apple or Android device, you paid for the Operating System and they have restrictions on how you use the software you bought.

They’re considered to be the AntiChrist which isn’t actually called AntiChrist in the book of The Revelation to Saint John the Divine.

Dubya Bush sings The Battle Hymn of the Republic like he’s dancing on John Brown’s grave.

“He captured Harper’s Ferry with his nineteen men so true.
He frightened old Virginia till she trembled through and through.
They hung him for a traitor, they themselves the traitor crew.
But his soul goes marching on! — Glory, glory, hallelujah…

 
It wasn’t the Lord who trampled out slavery. It was abolitionist John Brown. The song which roused Union forces as they marched in the Civil War was JOHN BROWN’S BODY. The lyrics were retooled by Julia Ward Howe as “Mine eyes have seen the glory”, rededicated to God, because Osawatomie John Brown was a domestic terrorist don’t you know.

Former president George W. Bush may have been drunk as he danced on the somber occasion of the memorial to the Dallas police killed by modern avenger Micah Johnson. But Dubya, alone among the traitor crew, let us see the true spirit of mockery that Howe’s makeover propaganda represents. Servicemen gave their lives for an honorable cause while their rulers converted their anthem, an appreciation for a true moral example, into praise for entrenched higher authority.

Today our leaders let fellow unrepentant war criminals bite their thumbs at us fools. The old abolitionist’s unquenched passion should haunt us still, if we weren’t robbed of his memory: “John Brown’s body lies a-mouldering in his grave–”

John Brown’s body lies a-mouldering in his grave.
John Brown’s body lies a-mouldering in his grave.
John Brown’s body lies a-mouldering in his grave.
His soul goes marching on!

Those are the Goddamn lyrics.

Haha. Black Power Rogue Blacklisted? Don’t they mean Micah Johnson was White-listed?

盈彩彩票
Propaganda hub Daily Beast has a bullshit article about how Dallas cop-killer . They mean “whitelisted” don’t they? It’s a laugh, but they interview a KEN MOORE of the COLLECTIVE BLACK PEOPLE’S MOVEMENT who claims a “tipster” asked him to vet Johnson for an unspecified black power organization. Moore uncovered a discharged-for-stealing-panties story (very likely another record fabricated by the DOD post-Dallas to distance themselves from Johnson) and returned a verdict of “unfit for recruitment” which Moore brags shut the modern Nat Turner out of the entire movement. Hmm.

Even if we are to believe that anti-establishment groups trust a clearinghouse to approve their members, Moore dropped this curiosity: As the Dallas shootings happened, the CBPM sent out an alert about the “non-sanctioned shooting” of cops. Are we to believe that Moore’s CBPM nows ahead of time which killings are “sanctioned”? No organization that talks to reporters or files tax returns can sanction killing, obviousy the CBPM informs for law inforcement. Ken Moore didn’t crawl out of the woodwork to talk to this reporter, the article states that as the Dallas shootings unfolded, Moore was speaking at a Black Lives Matter rally in Fort Worth TX.

Modern Nat Turner insures Dallas cops cannot assail Black lives with impunity

盈彩彩票Chris DornerWas ANYBODY going to stop the unfettered lynching of people of color in America? Did President Obama ever deliver anything more than a eulogy? Few police officers are being convicted or even indicted. Videotaped killings of black men by lawmen have become so common, those disseminating the videos are being accused of harboring fetishes. People expressing offense online are being shamed for being clicktivists, though clearly the only fuels firing public outrage are the videos. Meanwhile Black Lives Matter spokespeople have become so jaded they ridicule the efficacy of street protests. And now everyone is condemning the lone direct action taker.

The killing of any human being is terrible, but the retaliatory killings of police in Dallas could have been prevented. Not by expecting minority communities to stomach further and unending extrajudicial assassinations, but by having police curb their racism and use of lethal force. Or of course by disbanding militarized police departments. Public officials can’t even broach that conversation. Do we expect the police state to dismantle itself?

Self-styled black revolutionary Micah Xavier Johnson, a typical PTSD-hardened Afghan vet, put “suicide by cop” to the service of his embattled community and avenged the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. He didn’t shoot their actual killers, but he didn’t hit innocents either. Johnson targeted America’s systemic enforcers of inequity, hitting twelve police officers, five of whom have now died.

Let’s note those cops weren’t “protecting the first amendment rights” of a spontaneous protest of the Sterling and Castile murders, but were harassing and detering demonstrations. The officers could have chosen not to, and hopefully, their comrades in other cities, molesting other legal assemblies, may now choose to stand down, because now authoritarian bullying has come in the line of fire.

There is poetic justice for those who would decry “Blue Lives Matter”. If they’re going to pretend it, let them feel the oppressive threat of violence which black lives bear. For one evening, in a small corner of Dallas, Texas, police brutality faced a comeuppance.

For now Johnson’s act is being condemned as an atrocity, as a massacre even, though obviously his victims 1) met every standard of belligerent adversary, 2) were armed, and 3) outnumbered him. Let’s concede that Johnson is a credit to his military training. He confirms how our soldiers could so murderously rapage through our war zones against lesser equipped combatants. Johnson’s motive echoes that which provoked US atrocities overseas, seeking revenge against civilians, exacting collective punishment for deadly IEDs.

If we acknowledge the violence with which African Americans are oppressed, and the mendacity of its apologists and enablers, can we condemn violent resistance? International law accords oppressed peoples the human right to resist.

Slave rebellion leader Nat Turner is recognized today as a hero, but was exhaustively vilified in his day because he killed slave owners, indescriminate of old or young. Whites retaliated and killed many more blacks. More violence follwed from abolitionsists and Jayhawkers, all of it lamentable. But slavery didn’t end because we willed it.

Because this era’s history is written with erasers, our victors’ primary tool, Micah Johnson will probably never be praised for heroism.

Johnson will join fellow effaced cop-killer Christopher Dorner. A previous African American reservist vet who was immolated alive, killed instead of being apprehended, lest an investigation benefit from his testimony about why he could no longer bear LAPD corruption in 2013.

From Dorner’s “manifesto”, before Michael Brown, Ferguson and Baltimore:

“Those Caucasian officers who join South Bureau divisions (77th,SW,SE, an Harbor) with the sole intent to victimize minorities who are uneducated, and unaware of criminal law, civil law, and civil rights. You prefer the South bureau because a use of force/deadly force is likely and the individual you use UOF on will likely not report it. You are a high value target.

“Those Black officers in supervisory ranks and pay grades who stay in south bureau (even though you live in the valley or OC) for the sole intent of getting retribution toward subordinate caucasian officers for the pain and hostile work environment their elders inflicted on you as probationers (P-1?s) and novice P-2’s. You are a high value target.

You perpetuated the cycle of racism in the department as well. You breed a new generation of bigoted caucasian officer when you belittle them and treat them unfairly.

Mikah Johnson’s last words we only know through the spin of Dallas police, the same people who decided not to wait him out, nor to smoke him or gas him out from hiding in a public parking garage, but instead to send a robot with a bomb and M.O.V.E. his ass like every other black nationalist revolutionary.

No, you murdurous assholes, Johnson didn’t “want to kill all white people.” He wanted to kill white cops. Just like Dorner, he wasn’t a threat to the public, he was a threat to the police state. You cops ensured Mikah Johnson didn’t live to dictate “confessions” and you even obliterated his body like Osama bin Laden. Drawn and quartered essentially, to preclude memorializers being able to center on an idol to build a resistance.

You and I may grapple with what to think of Johnson’s personal rampage, but the state knew immediately his was the selfless heroism they fear most. As with bin Laden, they knew his apprehension must be terminal.

Lest I be misunderstood, I do not promote armed insurrection, sedition or murder. I cannot. But I will not condemn Micah Johnson.

I need not agrandize him either. Taken without his revolutionary ideology, Johnson was an ordinary mentally wounded veteran like many others. Homicidal vets with PTSD are at the core of our epidemic of police brutality. Our law enforcement teams are full of OIF and OEF soldiers who got their start shooting up cars at checkpoints and acting out racist genocide to their heart’s content.

It’s not a new problem, the US has always had active warzones feeding veterans into 盈彩彩票lessness for those who couldn’t cope and filling government jobs for those who thrived. Beside policemanship, a very common job for discharged soldiers has always been the post office. Rembember the rampaging gunman problem we used to call “going postal?”

America’s racism problem may be transcended by a succession of church services, but class struggle is not a hearts and minds operation. Fascist rule and its army of the rich are not going to be wished away by militant nonviolence. That’s as likely as counting on the tooth fairy.

Worrying that acts like Johnson’s will provoke increased authoritarian repression is an expression of privilege provided by someone aclimated to a tolerable status quo, clearly a white perspective for whom black lives matter not enough.

Until all of us share the plight of the average Syrian refugee, trapped in our capitalist frontier war zones, none of us are shouldering an equitable burden of the police state.

That’s why it is more than black lives that matter. The middle class greivances of Occupy Wall Street are only a class removed from Black America’s suffering. We’re still talking about privileged Americans who support a grander racism that drives our global exploitation of all peoples.

I don’t have any faith that an arc of history bends toward justice in this corporate dark age. For my own sense of what’s right, it’s important to recognize Micah Johnson and Christopher Dorner for who they were, flawed, maybe very minor, aspiring Nat Turners, who wanted to strike against today’s slave masters and their brutal blue foremen.

Open an older controversy

Sometimes I check the news stories to see if Eric is all right. Of course, the local newspropaganda outlets are pretty much all wrong all the time. Like this one issue from a few years back, a Council Critter name of Daniel Chacon took issue over Tribe not bowing down to his Royal City Council. The “free” press proved themselves to be the watchlapdogs of the local establishment. With no further ado, the first thing that comes when we’re searched on Google is this ridiculous video that calls Eric “cowardly” for supposedly “attacking” our beloved Civic Leader D. Chacon. In His Absence. Come on, now. That’s, to use a W.W.One trench slang, over the top. Seriously, how do you “attack” somebody without him being there? You would think that the minions of the local propaganda outlets like KOAA and the Gazette would at least TRY to learn how to use the English or any other language before, you know, using the language. I know, the incident took place years ago. But that’s what the search engine comes up saying every time. Calling some squirrel-like humanoid or human shaped squirreloid or maybe a person sized hemorrhoid a name, like crybaby fascist lackey (I think that’s what I wrote when this was actually new) is not an attack. An attack is when you strike somebody with a body part or other object. Somebody call whine-one-one because we need the hyberbole police and a waa-mbulance The cops behind whom Mr Chacon and his fellow lackeys hide attack people all the time. Usually when such a person is handcuffed. That’s my English lesson for the day, I hope the Chacon crowd can understand. I as always am “larnin’ all them yankees to talk english good like me” To the best of my knowledge the Shitty Hall folks only speak English, and that poorly.
You’re welcome.

Jack Graham says environment toxic

Meaning the “business envirornment”. He apparently feels that too much regulation is making the Corporate Bigpigs a little bit Not As Rich as they believe they deserve, and by golly he’s going to represent the Big Pigs and screw any of us poor folks who have to endure shit like radium, uranium, lead, mercury, petroleum products, smog and so forth in our soil, our water, our air, our bodies and those of our children. Also he apparently he feels the disenfranchised former union laborers are making too much money, and the Corporate Investors DESERVE many times the reward for their backbreaking efforts to go to an air conditioned office and count money all day than those dirty stinkin’ laborers who actually make the products and services the Corporates sell. Yeah, lazy bums, thinking that just because our labor puts exactly ALL the money into the bank accounts of the idle rich, means we could or should expect at least a living wage.

Of course he wants us to believe that he’ll represent We the People, but did you ever notice that fat chance, slim chance and no chance all mean the same thing?

Bunch of God-damn parasites. Hey, boss-man, pick your own damn cotton, bitch. See if you and your lazy ass sow and piglets can have their privileged lifestyle if you had to actually earn the money yourself.

 

Independence Day

Not quite the July 4th holiday. More like the commercial hit movie of that name about an Alien Invasion being repulsed, from 1996.

For those unable to do simple math, that’s 20 years ago. So The Army (which army? you may ask) is using the success of the film as a recruitment advertisement. Yes, dear readers, even in the culture of fear created in part by the Pentagon, as a service to their Rich Masters, the army and so forth and so on find it necessary to spend taxpayer bread making ads to let people know they can get a job killing people.

Because, you know, some of us might forget that such an opportunity exists.

 

 

Happy (International) Labor Day

Because the official one will be (a) months away and (b) it’s going to be a party for office workers more than laborers. All the bars and restaurants and stores will be open. THEIR employees ain’t going to have the day off.

But since this is also a Communist holiday, and of course in Northern Europe an ancient celebration of spring, well, I can’t really write about it without being called a commie. Too bad.

It doesn’t bother me any. Communism as an economic structure has been continuously practiced for more than a century and has proved more stable than Capital. In just my lifetime we’ve been subjected to recession after recession or as the Wall Street Elitists (not the same thing as being elite, just thinking that they are) “market corrections” more times than I have kept count thereof.

the “corrections” actually put more control of resources into fewer pockets/hands/bank accounts and especially if there’s massive bail outs. The ones who engineer these “corrections” know full well what they do. Nice for them, but for those who have been repeatedly impoverished by the same scam being perpetrated over and over and over… shit, we don’t even have to participate in the scam to be steamrollered.  Although Steam Rollers are kind of outdated, the name lives on as a verb.

 

And as the first sentences said, the Corporates have taken Labor Day and are selling us a shadow of what it is supposedly the meaning of actually celebrating Labor and our contributions to the world.

Try to have a good time anyway. Sometimes it actually works.

 

 

 

 

Oh you are so going to feel the burnie

Remember all those highschoolers and college students activated for Obama 2008, subsequently thoroughly BURNED OUT by the zero yield of Hope or Change for all their effort? It’s happening again on campuses across the country and yes it’s hard not to celebrate their optimism this time around again, even though they’re backing the same corporate party and same promises that have always corraled leftward idealists for the capitalist slaughterhouse. What tragic irony that their catch phrase is “Feel the Bern” because who is going to be feeling that pun ultimately? I’ll cheer them on because good intentions should always be rewarded, but I’m going to start calling their candidate BURNIE.
