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!

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!


Bill Clinton Elbows His Way Back Into The News

June 6, 2018

Old Bill Clinton has once again forced his way into the news, peddling another ghost-written book – a novel this time. Every washed-up politician has a book or two out. Who suspected we had such literary talent galumphing around in our sleazy politico pool? This output of books reminds me of these words from Tolstoy:  “If you asked someone, ‘Can you play the violin?’ and he says, ‘I don’t know, I have not tried, perhaps I can,’ you laugh at him. Whereas about writing, people always say: ‘I don’t know, I have not tried,’ as though one had only to try and one would become a writer.”

This time, in media interviews, the oafishly riggish Clinton fancies himself a champion of abused women – well why not? He created so many of them. Bill’s escapades with reluctant women landed him in court, forcing him to dip into Hillary’s bulging Cattle Futures investment fund so he could pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to his victim Paula Jones. Christopher Hitchens once wrote about how he’d have so loved to have heard that particular conversation between the Clinton Co-Presidents…

Ah, how I miss Hitchens. Although he fell out of favor with liberals (an extremely easy thing to do) he sure wielded a keen pen.

We can find some of the most shatteringly vitriolic words ever to come from the pointed pen of Christopher Hitchens in his writing about Bill Clinton’s fawning, obsequious, toadying, unctuous, arrogant, and flat out false words at the funeral for the execrable Richard Nixon.

Not only did Clinton refer to Nixon’s DREAM OF WORLD PEACE – tell that to the nations he carpet bombed – but Clinton demanded that we no longer criticize Nixon for anything that is merely a part of, and not the totality of, Nixon’s life. Meaning no more critical thinking about the only president so feculent and crooked that he had to resign.
So, talking about Nixon’s hatred of Black people and Jews, or mentioning his use of the IRS to, in his own words, “screw our enemies,” gets squelched because we’d be taking these foul, abhorrent incidents out of the context of Nixon’s whole life. We must, of course, remember that the man had a puppy…

To Clinton, Nixon stands tall as a brave seeker of truth and peace who played the role of a loving grandfather – meaning, presumably, that Nixon didn’t wire tap and slander his grandchildren.

Bill Clinton demands context? Okay. Try this for context: All the horrible things Nixon did in the course of his entire political career, from his Red-Baiting beginnings to his final yearnings to vaporize the people of Vietnam by dropping thermonuclear weapons on them, to his denouncing Peace Activists as “bums,” to his using bag-men to pay off his covert squad of thugs who committed burglaries at his behest, all this outweighs anything good Nixon may have done.
If you can stomach 6 minutes of verbal ipecac worthy of Uriah Heep, watch and listen as Bill Clinton mythologizes a severely mentally ill man who put the whole world at risk, a man who saw the presidency as a weapon with which to destroy all the people who had ever dared to cross him, a man who lived life in a toxic bubble of sycophants, paranoia, and rage in which the rule of law meant nothing but a minor inconvenience… and contorts him into a peace-loving adorable ol’ grampa – and then arrogantly claims to say all this on behalf of the whole nation. meaning you and me.
And as usual, Bill Clinton manages to find time to focus on himself…
Yuck.
