Soon I Shall Tell You





Speaking of Politicians…

We know what American politicians love best – WAR. These maniacs see everything as a YOU AGAINST ME proposition. War on Poverty… War on Drugs… War on a Virus… Mostly war against some nation with a GDP far less than the monetary value of the bombs dropped on them, blowing them up so we can have a sense of “victory”. Politicians know that using WAR is a war to quash dissent. People question the loyalty, patriotism, even the SANITY of anyone who asks WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
What a deadly way to live! Here is a book I believe EVERYONE should read! It tells, bluntly, who we as a nation are AND WHY WE HAVE GONE TO WAR almost non-stop since we began as a nation!

War Is A Racket Announcement

FROM MOJO BROS. PUBLISHING: Two-Time Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Smedley D. Butler’s famous essay on the horrors and futility of war – now in a facsimile edition. Peeling away the patriotic veneer used to win support for war, Butler tells why we go to war, who is behind it and who profits.
This book contains a FACSIMILE of the 1935 original. And more!
In the 1930s, a cabal of Wall Street businessmen, alarmed by what President Franklin D. Roosevelt was doing to spur the economy, planned to remove FDR. The plan – known as The Business Plot – called for rallying disaffected WW1 Veterans under a military leader who could unite them. That man, these plotters thought, was the retired Maj. Gen. Butler. They tried to win Butler to their cause with a promise of making him the a national dictator. They could not have been more mistaken! This book has a section showing Butler’s role in revealing this treasonous plot.
In an ALL-NEW forward, we tell the story of those times and – for the first time ever! – present recently declassified documents from Smedley Butler’s FBI file!


HERE YESTERDAY… HERE TODAY

April 5, 2020

Social Media has taught me one important thing:
when the threat of death faces people on a daily basis…

Taking DMT has changed people more than this feeble outbreak (and no, it’s not an epidemic here).

Nothing changes.

The TDS still think Trump is the font of all evil.

Withers still howl: “SHE WON BY 3,000,000 VOTES!”

Berners still believe a fraud who sold them out 4 years ago won’t do it again.

At 7pm each day, people who fancy themselves THE RESISTANCE loudly cheer their government enforced confinement.

People still think those who disagree with them are stupid.

People still call for UNITY while attacking positions they oppose.

Congressman Schiff wants to impeach Trump again.

The Newly Woke still think shouting “SOCIALISM” and “GREEN” will improve things.

FOX viewers and Rachel Maddow fans still feel superior to each other.

The Home of the Brave still quivers in endless fear.

The Land of the Free still demands a LEADER.

As always, BLAME is immediately assigned – based on one’s prejudices.

Jesus-Christers still exploit anything that comes down the pike to end abortion.

Vegans still denounce omnivores.

Politicians still exploit any crisis for personal gain, regardless of the damage they cause.

The “RISK TAKERS” of Wall Street still demand and get “bail-outs.”

Celebrities still think they’re important.

Interest Groups still compete for top victimhood status. 

The Middle East Maniacs still riantly revel in their traditional hatreds, killing as they have for over 70 years.

Obsolete Belief Systems withstand all pestilence like Neolithic monuments, outliving the events that birthed them.

American Mass shootings go on and on and on.  

People still say “I’ll start that diet Monday.”

Al Franken, without a trace of irony, GROPES for a comeback.

Newt Gingrich and Kathy Griffin and Hillary Clinton all continue to labor under the delusion that their slurred babbling has even a modicum of relevance.

Madonna still cannot see that she has all the youthful sex appeal of a platter of refried beans.

Every unverified claim by any Gyno-American is still absolutely true if you hate the accused.

That NY Times’ has-been Maureen Dowd still slathers on make-up like she’s Emmett Kelly.

Joe Biden has yet to learn that he’s in the 21st Century.

Jeff Bezos still wants MORE.

Sen. Schumer still lectures us in the sanctimonious tones of a rabbi who was defrocked for embezzling.

The Obamas still wag their finger at, and scold, a minimum of nine people a day.

History shows us humanity never changes.
This pandemic – one of thousands people have endured – verifies it.
We’re who we always were. And always will be.
And, of course, I’m still the smartest person in the room.
As is everyone else…

Speaking of things that NEVER CHANGE

MORE TIMES BULLSHIT
Here’s THE LATEST TOTAL BULLSHIT about the pandemic from The NY Times. From the April 5, 2020 edition:
CHRISTINA DIES

BULLSHIT:
How they describe this article about a “celebrity” famous for HAVING ONCE BEEN FAMOUS:
“This obituary is part of a series about people who have died in the coronavirus pandemic.”

NOTE: “IN the coronavirus pandemic”… NOT: BECAUSE of the pandemic. That, of course, includes EVERYONE who dies now. It’s like the rooster who believes he made the sun rise.

REALITY:
“Her daughter, Lucinda Zilkha Francis, said she had been suffering from several autoimmune disorders, including relapsing polychondritis, for approximately two decades. On Friday, her family learned she had tested positive for the coronavirus.”
“Her medical conditions were often debilitating: ‘It’s hard to plan a new album when you don’t know if you will make it down to the end of the street from one day to the next,’ she told Time Out New York. But in recent years, she had recovered enough to begin traveling.” (THE 19th PARAGRAPH!)

Remember: WHO THE HELL’S GONNA READ
THE SECOND PARAGRAPH?

===

This unfortunate person was THE WALKING DEAD.
A head-cold would’ve sent her to the ER.
And NOWHERE do we see that Coronavirus MADE HER ILL.
NO mention in the article WHATSOEVER of COVID-19, the disease.
Just the now-ubiquitous unquestioned claims from FAMILY MEMBERS.
Conflating NOVEL CORONAVIRUS with COVID-19 is how these bastards DELIBERATELY INCITE TERROR… for financial gain.
That is what makes this DIABOLICAL.
The Times is not alone in this deception.
I have even heard “news” people breathlessly refer to CORONA-19

If you allow yourself to fall for this LETHAL BULLSHIT then you have been WELL-TRAINED and yes, you are COMMITTING SUICIDE.

If doctors give people a placebo cornstarch pill and tell them it has specific “side effects” including hives and a fever, many who take the
pill WILL GET HIVES AND A FEVER.

NOCEBO SIDE EFFECTS

From That RADICAL CONSPIRACY-FILLED Magazine… THE SMITHSONIAN.

This is how the mind/body works.
And now we’re FLOODING people full-time with
DIRE HORROR stories
of this new disease.

BRILLIANT fucking move…



 

A New LOW For The NY Times…

April 1, 2020

Who The Hell’s Gonna Read
The Second Paragraph?

Second Paragraph

FEAR PORN

Ok. I am ANGRY. Thoroughly angry. I write these words in New York, the self-proclaimed EPICENTER of the Covid-19 outbreak. So would it surprise you to know that based on the latest numbers (April 1, 2020) out of ALL the people here only TWO GODDAMN FIFTHS OF ONE FUCKING PERCENT have tested positive for CORONAVIRUS?
Showing not just his lack of basic math skills but an appalling lack of vocabulary, New York City’s Mayor, one Bill DeBlasio (neé Warren Wilhelm) calls the Big Apple “The Epicenter of America’s Epicenter.” The City-Wide rate of infection? Also TWO GODDAMN FIFTHS OF ONE FUCKING PERCENT.

Additionally, we recently learned that the little elderly man suddenly everyone’s hero, Anthony Fauci, has been lying in public about Coronavirus. He has a PRIVATE position and a PUBLIC position. We’ve heard that before… While Fauci solemnly issues dire predictions of gloom and doom to satisfy the FEAR PORN requirements of TV news, he’s been giving much less ominous stats to medical journals – read by a small fraction of the public:
Fauci Lies

QUOTE: Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has repeatedly cited more jarring figures in public. For instance, Fauci declared in March 11 congressional testimony that the current coronavirus “is 10 times more lethal than the seasonal flu,” which would be about 1 percent. His testimony generated news headlines that blared across the internet and television news, and it remains frequently cited today.
But among his learned colleagues in academia, he has provided the more conservative analysis.
“[T]he case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%,” Fauci wrote in an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine on March 26. “This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of COVID-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.” 

You got that? Remember, Fauci is just shy of 80 years old. Doctors from his generation were DELIBERATELY TRAINED to scare people so they will, in desperation, LISTEN TO AND FOLLOW THE DOCTOR’S ADVICE. They are the same old people who were trained to HIT grown people just before administering an injection. That was supposed to dull the pain of the needle but it was a power trip. How are TWO pains medically better than ONE pain? And I will leave aside what the newly-“woke” idiots don’t know about this wicked midget: HE IS STILL SEETHING OVER NOT HAVING GOTTEN A NOBEL PRIZE FOR HIS SLIPSHOD WORK IN THE AIDS CRISIS. 

So all this media panic is counter-productive AND LETHAL. Fear and Stress STOP THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. Scaring people IS THE SINGLE WORST THING WE CAN DO NOW.
STRESS
Why does MEDIA scare people?
One picture speaks a thousand words…

money

And this bring us to THE NY YORK TIMES

At the Times, they LOVE stories of priests dying from this thing.
Here is TODAY’S dead priest story:
Dead Priest
NOTE: Today’s priest not only weighed over 300 pounds, looking at his picture…

BUT THIRTY-FIVE PARAGRAPHS DOWN – after the obligatory accusation of COVID-19 being RACIST… we learn this about the 49-year old man:
“He suffered from chronic bronchitis but was relatively young, and it did not seem unusual when he developed a cough.”

Over THIRTY GODDAMN PARAGRAPHS DOWN. 
“Who the hell’s gonna read the second paragraph…”

☞ So an obese man just under 50 years old… who has a chronic respiratory condition SO BAD THAT COUGHING IS NORMAL FOR HIM… USUAL FOR HIM… died after getting an ACUTE RESPIRATORY DISEASE. What the hell did they expect?
And the Times uses this to exacerbate the panic… Just as they did with Italy at the start of this thing.
And the Times KNOWS this or they would not have buried the priest’s medical conditions so far down in the story. That is EVIDENCE OF A GUILTY MIND.
The priest may well have died WITH Novel Coronavirus but it is a stretch to say that he died BECAUSE OF IT.
Jumping up from behind and yelling STICK ‘EM UP at this poor afflicted man would have likely sent him to the hospital in a near-death state.

That is how the media WHIPS UP FEAR. Now here’s the most disgusting part:
For the duration of this disease outbreak – THE TIMES HAS TAKEN DOWN ITS PAYWALL.
They are patting themselves on the back over that, claiming it is a PUBLIC SERVICE. But in reality WITH ALL THEIR FECULENT CLICK-BAIT STORIES THEY NEED THE PAYWALL DOWN TO RAISE THEIR NUMBERS AND THUS INCREASE ADVERTISING RATES NEXT TIME THEIR CIRCULATION CALCULATIONS ARE MADE.

The NY TIMES is DELIBERATELY scaring as many people as possible FOR THEIR OWN FINANCIAL GAIN using FALSE INFORMATION even though scaring people is LETHAL.

Damn These Bastards


STILL AT IT

Pizzarelli Obit

First: “The guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli, his son and frequent musical associate, said the cause was the coronavirus.”

That’s a MEDICAL SOURCE? Would you suspect, perhaps, that this unfortunate man, at age 94, MAY JUST have had some, oh…, underlying health problems? Here’s what we find out ALMOST 20 PARAGRAPHS LATER:

“Mr. Pizzarelli continued to perform into his 90s, even after a stroke and pneumonia led to hospitalizations in 2015 and 2016 and left him debilitated.” – emphasis added

Left. Him. Debilitated.

So a frail man, almost 100 years old, stricken by the ravages of age, falls ill and dies.
BUT LET’S ASCRIBE HIS DEATH TO CORONAVIRUS AND GET THOSE CLICKS UP!

Who The Hell’s Gonna Read
The Second Paragraph?

Have these people NO CONSCIENCE?

I Told You So!

July 9, 2019

Yes, I told you so. God, those are
such delicious words!

As I predicted, egomaniac billionaire TOM STEYER is – shock! – running for president. This just came in from Reuters:

Screen Shot 2019-07-09 at 3.27.27 PMHere’s what I posted back in January of 2018, following a newspaper article which I published in December of 2017:

“It turns out we were… right back in January when we said that all you people across the nation who signed the phony IMPEACH TRUMP petition promulgated by billionaire Tom Steyer got played for saps. Not only did Steyer drop the whole thing after millions of people signed on, gleefully giving him their name and address, but now it turns out that – as we said at the time – this was all a ruse to get a voter list to hit up for donations in an upcoming presidential run.
“Early this month news leaked about an ANONYMOUS AD for campaign aides that ran on the website LinkedIn. Those ads got traced right smack back to good old Tom Steyer – who needed that gaggle of petition-signing suckers in order to launch his 2020 run for the White House.
“All you who signed his petition, watch your in-box over the coming months. And see what you brought down on us by following someone who traded on your Trump Derangement fears. Steyer was someone you never even heard of, but you supported him because he played on your jejune liberal fantasies of impeachment. You fell for Steyer’s bullshit because you stupidly believed that anyone claiming to be the enemy of your enemy is your friend. It’s a game that works every time. So the next time some billionaire pops up from nowhere and acts all “resistance-y” about people you dislike, try paying a little more attention to the motivation. We see now the hazards of a politically untested billionaire running a campaign based on playing your emotions. The proof of that sits in the White House right now. So for the 2020 election try this for a change: THINK.”

CLICK HERE for the original December 2017 article warning people that Steyer’s impeachment petition was nothing but a way to compile a sucker list so he can run for president…

Billionaires are INSANE. This is all we need to know about billionaires: These are people who once had $800,000,000… and it was not enough! They needed MORE! That’s as good a working definition of a crazy person as we can get.Billionaires

GREEN is the Color of MONEY

February 26, 2019

I write this for all the people frightened of… CLIMATE CHANGE.

When Global Warming scares you, I mean REALLY scares you… congratulations! You have been well-primed and now… you are ready for the plucking.

People in FEAR have turned themselves into an easy mark for those people selling us a stockpile of useless products and reams of bad legislation – all because they will promote these things as “GREEN” and “good for the environment.

Leading this charge to manipulate us, we find one Michael Rubens Bloomberg – an elderly single man who portrays himself as an “environmentalist” while maintaining SIX homes on TWO continents and listing his hobby as… HELICOPTER FLYING. He also zips around the globe in a private jet just to get away for the weekend. Does this sound to you like a person who has any concerns whatsoever about his carbon footprint? Does he sound like a person who really gives a shit about the environment? Should this man be lecturing us? Hell, Bloomberg cannot even pronounce the word “environment,” saying instead: “en-vie-er-min.” Yet Bloomberg will spend hundreds of millions of dollars to tell YOU how to live and who YOU must vote for in order to “save the planet.”

“Environmentalist” Bloomberg Dumping Pollution Into The Air and Wasting Fuel To Enjoy His HOBBY

Don’t fall for this bullshit.

Don’t act like a sap; a tool of these rich people.

Allow me to drop some reality on you:

Anything we do to fight off climate change will only make things worse.

We caused climate change. We cannot “fight” it. Everything wrong with the planet today began as somebody’s brilliant idea to improve the world.
It never works out. Ever.

We have almost 8 billion people on the planet, nearly all of whom live in opposition to nature. THAT caused climate change. In order to live in the style which most of us call “comfort,” a style that ignores the natural cycles of the planet, we have spewed untold tons of pollutants into the air and the water. This will never get fixed by those same 8 billion people who caused it. Basic Rule: Everything we do to improve things ALWAYS makes things worse. History shows this with crystal clarity. Yet of all sublunary creatures, only we Human Beings insist on “improving” the planet. As if the planet needed our help! If that doesn’t define delusional and egotistical, what does? And that very delusion created all the problems we now face. How can the minds that did this to us and to the planet seriously expect to correct it?

Let’s face it: With the current situation, we see nothing less than planet getting rid of a major threat. By threat, I mean we meddlesome, intrusive HUMAN BEINGS.

Humans can do absolutely nothing to repair the imbalance we caused in the biosphere… unless we get into harmony with the planet. Good luck with that! It gets dark at night? You live in the dark till morning. You want to travel 2,000 miles? Prepare yourself for a monumental trek. Get hot in the summer and cold in the winter. No more pernicious, destructive tommyrot about “conquering nature” or “taming the wilderness.”

But we know this will never happen. Modern humans will not drop everything and live in harmony with the environment like the Kalahari Bushmen or the few remaining unsullied tribal communities in the Brazilian Jungle. Yet nothing short of that will work. Not buying a hybrid car… not building a massive transcontinental railroad network (making the required steel will alone result in horrendous environmental damage)… definitely not putting more nuclear power plants on line… none of that will help.

The FEAR now implanted in people comes from nothing more than marketing hype.

Yes, this FEAR comes from marketing, deliberately, callously, and cold-heartedly devised to scare us into buying useless things at best, toxic things at worst.

You want to do some good? Ignore the hype and concentrate on local projects and goals that you can make workable. You have a factory where you live that spews poisons into the air and/or water? Go after them. You see black smoke pouring out of an apartment building’s chimney? Go after them. Do the small things like that, things at which you can succeed, and you will make real change. Do the possible. Don’t dissipate your energies on some chimera about “saving the planet.” Saving the planet? I cannot think of a more perfect example of grandiose thinking, which psychiatrists list as a prime symptom of narcissistic personality disorder.

Let go of the FEAR.

This FEAR provides nothing more than a gigantic distraction. Because of the fear, people worry needlessly about the unattainable and ignore the practical. All while getting beaten up by rich people with something to sell us.

I for one will not be lectured on the need to conserve water by some rich schmuck with four swimming pools.

I will not be scolded over the need to cut back on fossil fuel use by an etiolated, schoolmarmish billionaire who takes a helicopter to go just 30 miles from Manhattan to Westchester.

I will not be harangued about the evils of take-out Styrofoam containers by some mollycoddled trust-fund baby who dines on Maine lobster flown to her mansion that morning on a private jet.

Spending your hard-earned money on GREEN shower-heads and GREEN light-bulbs and GREEN automobiles and “LOW CARBON” shampoo and “ECO-FRIENDLY” remote controls for your energy-eating electronic gadgets (Yes, there is such a thing) won’t put the slightest dent in the situation. But that’s the name of the game. Get us all in FEAR over the environment and then slap GREEN or LOW CARBON on useless things to buy. So many people fall for this bushwa that news reports call GREEN products and GREEN MARKETING a “growth industry.”

Flashback To An Earlier Marketing Craze

Buying these products does nothing more than provide a simulacrum of alleviating the problem. It adds up to nothing more than feel-good poppycock; puffery designed purely to separate us from our money while providing the illusion of taking beneficial action. Marketers spend billions getting us to think that buying those baubles and gimcracks from them allows us to do a good thing. This is a shuck, achieved with flimflam and deception. A con game. In short, it is pure Madison Avenue. Remember back in the 1980s when the advertisers relentlessly hawked OAT BRAN – exploiting the FEAR of fatal heart attacks? Everything had OAT BRAN in it – until the craze was proven baseless. Oat bran… same as today’s GREEN-this and GREEN-that. Only now instead of your heart, they throw the whole damn planet at you. Marketers can always find something to pull of their hats to scare us into spending money… Exploiting FEAR is their sole job. Let go of this fear and you kick the pins out from under their scam. Until the next Oat Bran comes along.

Don’t. Be. A. Chump.

Men! Are you LICENSED TO CARRY? 

Yes, we all agree that Sexual Harassment of women is a very real thing that must be stemmed. But now Sexual Harassment has become a euphemism for rape. And we get such idiocy as this comment from NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio: Let me be clear, every single person who has the courage to come forward with a sexuaharassment complaint deserves to be believed.” No investigation? No trial? No questioning of the complaining witness? Allegations are now taken as fact simply because the alleger has… a vagina? That is the sign of a Witch Hunt, men, and now we see open season on The Pernicious Pale Penis People. Everything bad… is YOUR fault.
Sooner or later, some poor schnook is going to be attacked for… carrying a concealed penis in his pants. You know that’s coming.  So men: why be at risk of getting charged with carrying a concealed penis? To forestall such lunacy, here’s the OFFICIAL CONCEALED CARRY PENIS PERMIT! The permit will fit in your wallet, so don’t EXPOSE YOURSELF to trouble! Never leave home without it… the card, that is.

How You Got Played – A Message To Gullible New Yorkers

December 18, 2018

Of all glad words of tongue or pen, the happiest are these:
“I TOLD YOU SO!”

Back when New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ignored the NY State Open Meeting Laws and subverted the public review process to ram through his same-sex marriage bill, many people cheered him. They cheered, even though Cuomo abused his power, because Cuomo did something they wanted. We too supported same-sex marriage (it’s a simple matter of equal protection under the law) but we opposed the underhanded, sneaky, and illegal way in which Cuomo did it. And at the time, we issued a gardyloo to the people who supported the criminal methods employed by Cuomo: “If you cheer Cuomo for subverting the law to do something you like, don’t come crying to us when Cuomo subverts the law to do something you don’t like. And he will.”

So here we are with the Amazon deal, a corporate giveaway deal in which Cuomo made a secret agreement behind closed doors without any public review to give the richest company in the world AT LEAST THREE BILLION DOLLARS of our tax payer money. The details were worked out in secret and we still don’t know the extent of the agreement. Why not? Because as parties to the deal, NY Gov. Cuomo and NYC Mayor deBlasio actually – unbelievably! – entered into confidentiality agreements with Amazon. You know, the kind of deals that Pres. Trump’s lawyer just got sentenced to three years in jail for proffering to women.

Worse than last time, Cuomo was so heartily emboldened by the cheers for his duplicity and deceitfulness, that along with ignoring the NY State Open Meetings Law, this time Cuomo completely avoided the Uniform Land Use Review Process. Under ULURP, as it is called, the process must go through rigorous public review. Key participants in the ULURP process include the Department of City Planning, the City Planning Commission, local Community Boards, the Borough President, the Borough Boards, the City Council, and the Mayor. And every step of the way with ULURP demands rounds of public hearings at which citizens are given ample time to speak. We had none of that.

Why did Cuomo feel comfortable ignoring ALL public participation in a massive and costly new development? That’s easy: All this happened with the Amazon project because so many people encouraged Cuomo to violate the Open Meeting Laws when it came to their own pet legislation. You, the people who cheered Cuomo over his stealth ramming through of same-sex marriage, told him by your applause that you approve of his dictatorial, despotic, imperious, underhanded methods. You should have demanded that Cuomo obey the law back then. Instead… you EMBOLDENED Cuomo to violate the law this time and to do it in an even worse manner.

To add insult to injury, the subterfuge in the same-sex marriage case that so many people cheered… was not even necessary. The Supreme Court soon made same-sex marriage the law of the land. And they did so PUBLICLY. Not in the sneaky, sly, unethical, dishonest, and devious way that is, clearly, Cuomo’s Way.

At the end of November, NY City Council Speaker Corey Johnson had this to say about the secrecy surrounding the Amazon deal: “I don’t think there is any defense to subverting the public review process.” This statement, of course, is in blatant conflict with Johnson’s position when Cuomo subverted and sabotaged the public review process for something Johnson supported. In fact, at the time Johnson praised Cuomo’s furtive, sneaky wheeling and dealing to ram through the Same Sex Marriage Bill: “Cuomo is a master player at the inside game,” Johnson noted back then, praising the governor.

So to City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and everyone who, in 2011, encouraged Cuomo to violate the law and in fact cheered him for doing so: THANKS. The admiration you showered on Cuomo when he broke the Open Meeting Laws EMBOLDENED him and led to his doing it again – but this time he did it in a bigger way and with something you don’t like. And now you have the nerve to act outraged because Cuomo subverted and undermined the Amazon process? Where the hell were you with your outrage when your outrage was needed?

Gullible Animated


BTW: New Yorkers, it is now clear that you are not the only chumps so easy to sucker. It turns out we were also right back in January when we said that all you people across the nation who signed the phony IMPEACH TRUMP petition promulgated by billionaire Tom Steyer got played for saps. Not only did Steyer drop the whole thing after millions of people signed on, gleefully giving him their name and address, but now it turns out that – as we said at the time – this was all a ruse to get a voter list to hit up for donations in an upcoming presidential run.

Early this month news leaked about an ANONYMOUS ad for campaign aides that ran on the website LinkedIn. Those ads got traced right smack back to good old Tom Steyer – who needed that gaggle of petition-signing suckers in order to launch his 2020 run for the White House.Styer Ad For Blog

All you who signed Styer’s petition, watch your in-box over the coming months – and see what you brought down on us by following someone who traded on your Trump Derangement fears. Steyer was someone you never even heard of, but you supported him because he played on your jejune liberal fantasies of impeachment. You fell for Steyer’s bullshit because you stupidly believed that anyone claiming to be the enemy of your enemy is your friend. It’s a game that works every time. The suckers always fall for it. So the next time some billionaire pops up from nowhere and acts all “resistance-y” about people you dislike, try paying a little more attention to the person’s motivation. We see now the hazards of a politically untested billionaire running a campaign based on playing to your childish emotions. The proof of that sits in the White House right now. So for the 2020 election try this for a change:
THINK!


Want to start yourself on the way to getting free from people who play on our fears? This book was written just over 100 years ago, but it still holds true today.
I wrote the new introduction that sets the book in its context, as I show how it applies to the current reign of terror in which corporate media controls millions of people. This book starkly exposes the way the manipulators of fear seek to hold onto power by any means necessary.

I Must’ve Slept Through The Revolution…

May 20, 2018

Times Square NYC Post-Cold War


During the cold war, millions of Americans lived in fear of the USSR taking us over. 

Whenever I’d meet such frightened people I would ask: “And what exactly will Russia do with America once they take us over?” 
Here is what I was told: 
We will have masked police with machine guns in our streets… 
The government will tap all our phones and read our mail…
News will not report events, but will tell us just what government wants us to think…
Journalists who don’t fall in line will be prosecuted for telling the truth…
Our water will be poisoned…
Our votes won’t count…
An elite will control the economy…
Protest will be stifled or controlled by a handful of people…
Secret Police will infiltrate private groups…
We will live in a constant state of war overseas…
We’ll have no medical care…
People will be forced to work three jobs just to survive…
Government will ignore our complaints…
Millions of Americans will be in prison…
People will starve as those in power get richer and richer…
Government will be shrouded in secrecy for “security” reasons…
Hmmmm.
I guess Russia DID take over America after all.

HOPE and THE BIG CON

NOTE: This will likely be my longest blog post to date. It demands the space because the issue involves every aspect of our lives…

“It is not yours to finish the task, but neither are you free to set it aside.” – Rabbi Tarfon, Pirke Avot 2:21

“For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business.” – T.S. Eliot

In 2016, the presidential election day arrived at the culmination of a staggeringly lengthy 19-month election cycle. Exposure to this lengthy, drawn-out process, played out as a TV show every day, warped the minds of many people – people who now find them selves unable to accept the election results or let go of the process. They still argue over an election that the people decided well over 500 days ago. Corporate news media encourages this obsession, as newspapers and TV shows deliver a steady stream of excuses for the democrat losing the election: Russia, Fake News, The DNC, sexism, Comey, Anthony Weiner, Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein and on and on ad nauseam. A new excuse pops up every few weeks, the latest (as of this writing) being that women were somehow bullied into voting for a particular candidate by their husbands.

This fixation with the past presents a stark deviation in the way our politics normally operate. With this essay, I will lay out, for all to see, the way in which our political system works to distract people… to con people.

Party politics has become the tool employed by the Powers That Be to divide The People and make sure that we dilute our deep power as we squabble endlessly about the next election.
By letting Party Politics take our attention away from the NOW and focusing instead on the next election, many people have permitted themselves to live in an imaginary future; a future created by advertising people and campaign professionals.
In Party Politics, nothing holds more importance than the next election. How many times have we been told, “Sure I believe in Third Party candidates. But… THIS TIME THE ELECTION IS TOO IMPORTANT!” No matter what the issue, the Party refrain is always “This is not the right time.”
With Party Politics, issues mean absolutely nothing. Democrats join Republicans to gut banking regulations and to wage war.  Only the FUTURE matters. We always hear promises for the future. By focusing our attention on the future instead of the present, we allow ourselves to get suckered into sheepishly accepting any current situation.
Well here’s a newsflash: The future never comes. The time is always NOW.

As Lewis Carrol wrote:
“The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday – but never jam to-day.”
“It must come sometimes to ‘jam to-day’,” Alice objected.
“No, it can’t,” said the Queen. “It’s jam every other day: to-day isn’t any other day, you know.”
“I don’t understand you,” said Alice. “It’s dreadfully confusing!”

And once we allow ourselves to get confused, we make ourselves like a prairie chicken to a circling hawk – ripe for the picking.

Hope and the Con Artist
Placing our focus on some future HOPE is the keystone of every con game. All con games rely on filling the scam’s “mark” with the hope of an imagined future payoff. Without this fake hope, nobody can con you. With it, anyone can – and will – con you.  Whether the payoff is 45% return on investment (Ponzi) or flipping congress (party politics) the surest sign of a con job is that it turns our heads away from now and aims us at an imagined future.

We have no power in the future. We only have power now.

So when we have our attention manipulated away from NOW, we willingly give up any power we have. When we see an unjust condition that outrages us, to shout “NEVER AGAIN” (meaning in the future) is meaningless compared to “IT STOPS NOW”. “Never again” means we accept it now.

Although it may sound counterintuitive, I believe that the worst advice we can possibly follow is KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE. Looking unwaveringly at some future result creates a distraction that takes our focus off the NOW. To combat this, we need to deal with WHAT IS and not that which we have been fooled into imagining will come sometime in the future. You see something you want to change? Work to change it NOW. Do what you need to do NOW and do it without the lust for future results. As T.S. Eliot noted: “For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business.” If you fail, you fail. Big deal. But you didn’t divert your attention to some nebulous time far away that never comes. You did your work to change things here, now. Where it counts. This will take some work on our part. Earlier this month, striking teachers in Oklahoma received this startling news: “PRESIDENT OF OKLAHOMA’S LARGEST TEACHERS UNION CALLS FOR END TO STRIKE; SAYS THE FOCUS SHOULD SHIFT TO MIDTERM ELECTION” (AP, Apr. 12, 2018). Just as the teachers started getting solid results, the union shifted them away from NOW to next November and some vague future.

Spotting A Con Artist
All con artists have one thing in common: The con artist will always, relentlessly talk of the future so that you will not examine what’s happening now. This holds especially true for the political bunko artist. Example: Remember Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign theme song? “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.”
And what did Franklin Roosevelt use as a campaign theme song? “Happy Days Are Here Again.”
FDR concentrated on NOW. Bill Clinton, who time has revealed as a con man (Remember “Slick Willie”?) clearly wanted voters to ignore what he does NOW and keep thinking about the future.
And what happened to that person in 2008 who ran on “HOPE AND CHANGE”? Remember how that turned out? It was all a whimsy, an illusion because HOPE AND CHANGE mean different things to each one of us. And that is what the con artist does; gets us each to see what we want to see instead of reality.

How We Limit Our Power
All scams, from the politics of “hope” to mega-lotteries, hinge on yanking us out of the present and into a future time that simply won’t ever come. I have known a great many people who really believed: “When I’m rich and famous then I will be happy!” It became the driving force in their lives. And some of them got their wish… only to discover that they are still the same damn person they always were – only now they have money and people know who they are. Several of these people killed themselves upon attaining their goal.

I knew a woman who wanted to be a writer. Not because she enjoyed writing. Not because she had something special to say. She wanted to be a writer because she saw a whole imagined future blossoming from her literary efforts. She had it all laid out, refined over years of dreaming: She would write a novel. Her book would get published (after a bidding war among the big publishers). The book would receive glowing, rave reviews. The press would herald the arrival of a new literary lion. The book’s movie rights would sell for a record-setting price. She would be rich and famous. And then… her family will finally respect her and envy her. She will be… somebody.
Does it come as a surprise to you that over the years this woman started several projects but never finished a single one? With such high stakes as she imagined hanging in the balance, with her imagined future-self depending upon the perceived success of her writing, she made the act of setting words to paper a task daunting beyond belief. Her “hope” limited her ability top do the one thing she claimed to want to do. She stymied herself by making the responsibility of writing into something overwhelming. She just could not do it. One of the last times she and I spoke to each other, I asked her a simple question: “Do you want to be a writer? Or do you want to be a rich and famous writer? Because those are two different things.”

The Lottery Con
Lotteries – especially the so-called “mega” lotteries – rely on people harboring outlandish hopes for their future. The state, through its unremitting lottery advertising campaigns, fill the mind with these future hopes, making them seem within reach. As noted, this focus on the future is the surest sign of a con job. And people buy the tickets knowing that the odds of winning are against them and despite the fact that stories of the ruined lives of lottery winners are legion. I knew one such person. He snagged a substantial amount of lottery money in the 1970s – it, as he hoped, it changed his whole life: Marriage. Home. Popularity. Everything he thought he wanted he got. And when the money ran out… so did his wife and his “friends”. Unable to maintain the house, he lost that too. The lottery – even though he’d won it –  just didn’t turn out the way he’d… hoped.

Hope and Fear
Along with stressing HOPE for the future, another sign of a con job is a morbid fear of the future:
“32 Million People Would Lose Coverage If Law Repealed!”
“Congress To Cut Social Security & Medicare After Passing Tax Plan!”
“Missile Test Shows North Korea Can Hit All Of U.S.A.!”
“U.S. Life Expectancy Declines For The First Time since 1993!”
“Sea Level Rise Will Flood Hundreds of Cities in Near Future!”
These actual headlines instill dread – and dread becomes the fertilizer required for the planting and growing of fake hopes. If you find yourself carrying this dread ask yourself who instilled it in you. Then ask what is in it for them.

A Lively Example
Consider the con artist in the Broadway musical “The Music Man.” In the early years of the 20th Century, “Professor” Harold Hill comes to River City, Iowa. He scouts the town for something, anything, to exploit for his own ends. He latches on to something new happening now – the town of River City has gotten its very first pool table. And he uses this pool table to turn the attention of the town away from now to the future. Hill gathers together some people and points out the pool table, asking them if they are aware of a great danger – “the caliber of disaster indicated by the presence of a pool table in your community.” He then relentlessly and with great energy paints a bleak and disastrous future for the town, all because of the pool table. Hill fills the townspeople with the fear of a total breakdown of the social structure in River City among… THE CHILDREN. Hill even invokes patriotism in the cause of protecting the town from the menacing, threatening, treacherous pool table. All to protect… the children.
Then, after letting the citizens of River City chew on this for a couple of days, letting their imaginations run wild, Hill conveniently offers them a solution to their imagined ills. A solution that paints a rosy future for the town and its precious children. A solution that will fill his pockets with money.
And there we see the Big Con’s trifecta of HOPE/FEAR/AN IMAGINED IDYLLIC FUTURE. The people of River City will… take back their town and their problems will be solved. For the con artist, the parlay of HOPE/FEAR/IDYLLIC FUTURE remains highly profitable to this very day.
Why do con artists bring up the children? Because (can you just hear it?) “The children are our hope for the future.” Which politician fails to use this scam? I always think of the Music Man and the devious Prof. Hill when I hear the endless yammering of today’s politicians who say we must elect them… for the children.

Planning
None of this is meant to knock normal planning and scheduling in life. That’s what we do to arrange an orderly and well-regulated existence. We make plans in the name of efficiency and, when dealing with others, to maintain common courtesy. This type of quotidian preparation is a far cry from basing life on imagined, desired events that we whip up into importance beyond all reality. Thinking “when I’m rich, then I’ll be happy” or “If I elect Candidate Floogleman, then the nation will be great again” is ridiculous. Normal planning is practical. The future planning of the con artist is just other fanciful. It’s the difference between being practical enough to catch a flight on time, and some chimera about a future which somebody deliberately planted in your head for his or her own purposes. The former gets YOU somewhere by your own efforts. The latter gets SOMEONE ELSE somewhere through your exploited efforts. Efforts that they planted in your mind.
Planning is about realistic goals. Saving money for a house, for instance. Not an illusion like “when I get that house then my life will be perfect.”
Politically, realism means voting for a candidate with whom you agree, instead of voting for a candidate who offers no more than fear-based slogans about the future. Beware silly promises for the future like things like “we’ll take the country back” or “no more crime in the streets”…
Don’t let promises for the future take your mind of life now. Labor organizer Joe Hill knew how easy it was to manipulate people with promises. As Hill wrote in the song THE PREACHER AND THE SLAVE:

You will eat, bye and bye,
In that glorious land above the sky;
Work and pray, live on hay,
You’ll get pie in the sky when you die.

Joe Hill knew…

Practical Action
A few years back, on a hot July afternoon, I began shivering. I felt so cold! To remedy this, I went to the window to lower the AC and discovered it was not even on. Immediately I went to the medicine chest for the thermometer and took my temperature. To my horror, the mercury registered a tad above 103º and I went straight to the hospital. I didn’t allow myself to be distracted by somebody saying, “Someday we will have better thermometers!” Or “Next year we will take back your temperature!” I took direct action and that action saved my life. Yes, I spent eight days in the hospital mostly in intensive care – but I did what was needed NOW and did not piss away my life hoping for an imaginary future when things would somehow be better.
THAT is why I am alive today to write this…
