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!


Frightened People Simply Do NOT Get It…

“A western New York law firm slapped with a ‘cease and desist’ order by the state for continuing to allow employees to report to the office amid the COVID-19 pandemic is suing Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state Attorney General Letitia James for alleged abuse of power.
“HoganWillig PLLC said executive orders Cuomo signed in March that restricted business activities violated the U.S. Constitution, while James’ “scare tactics” claims that the firm would face civil and criminal penalties should it not adhere to the orders violates the firm’s rights under the Equal Protection Clause, according to Wednesday’s complaint in the Western District of New York.”

Back In 2018, I WROTE THESE WORDS IN THIS FORUM:

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.”I Told You So

QUOTE: “Do governors have inherent power in an emergency to craft regulations that carry the force of law? The answer is no. The Guarantee Clause of the Constitution mandates a republican (lowercase “r”) form of government in the states. That means the separation of powers into three branches, each with a distinct function that cannot constitutionally be performed by either of the other two. Since only a representative legislature can write laws that carry criminal penalties and incur the use of force, the governor of a state cannot constitutionally write laws.”


This Just InBELOW we see why we should never have allowed FEAR-MONGERING ignoramus POLITICIANS and BUREAUCRATS to run the response to a disease. LET EXPERIENCED DOCTORS do it. And by that, I mean REAL doctors, not some vain, lying, popinjay who devoted the past 40 years to snagging a Nobel Prize – and who happens to have a medical degree he studied for back when John F. Kennedy was president. You know, like the creepy, ghoulish “Dr.” Fauci, the man responsible for millions of AIDS deaths. If that man was a compass he’d point in all directions at the same time. The truth has no meaning for that lunatic:

Virus Loses Potency

Click For Story

QUOTE: ROME (Reuters) – The new coronavirus is losing its potency and has become much less lethal, a senior Italian doctor said on Sunday.

“In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” said Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan in the northern region of Lombardy, which has borne the brunt of Italy’s coronavirus contagion.

Zangrillo said some experts were too alarmist about the prospect of a second wave of infections and politicians needed to take into account the new reality.

“We’ve got to get back to being a normal country,” he said. “Someone has to take responsibility for terrorizing the country.”

The government urged caution, saying it was far too soon to claim victory.

Do you see what’s happening in Italy? A DOCTOR, an actual WORKING PHYSICIAN, says that the virus is gone.
THIS is what VIRUSES DO. They DISSIPATE.
Italian POLITICIANS, though… URGE CAUTION – because they don’t know WTF they are talking about and they NEED to keep the bullshit crisis going. How else they gonna look like heroes? That’s how bureaucrats work. How many times have you heard police and prosecutors get in front of news cameras and solemnly say, “This is the most HEINOUS crime I have ever encountered?” With politicians, FEAR is their thing. Why? Because the sheep among us fall for it time after time after time. And now, at 7pm every night, THE SHEEP CHEER their own goddamn confinement.

Look: I live in New York. The Governor here was soooooo busy appearing on CNN, where he would ARGUE WITH HIS MORONIC TV ACTOR BROTHER, that he never even bothered to read the damn NY State PANDEMIC PLAN!
Flu-like diseases… DISSIPATE. Unless, of course, YOU CONFINE THE WHOLE POPULATION and then you send these people out all at once to get infected by EVERYTHING in the air. What a yotz Andrew Cuomo is. This is the man who just the other day gloated about reopening NY City: “That will be my claim to fame.”
My. Claim. To. Fame. Good god! It’s ALWAYS ABOUT HIM. Cuomo is the mental midget who ISSUED AN ORDER that nursing homes filled with vulnerable elderly people MUST take in Covid-19 patients:

Click Image For Story

From ABC NEWS: Residents’ relatives, health care watchdogs and lawmakers from both parties cite problems with testing and transparency that have prevented officials — and the public — from grasping the full scale of the catastrophe.
And they are second-guessing a state directive that requires nursing homes take on new patients infected with COVID-19 — an order they say accelerated outbreaks in facilities that are prime breeding grounds for infectious diseases.
“The way this has been handled by the state is totally irresponsible, negligent and stupid,” said Elaine Mazzotta, a nurse whose mother died [in April] of suspected COVID-19 at a Long Island nursing home. “They knew better. They shouldn’t have sent these people into nursing homes.”

Then, after almost SIX THOUSAND HELPLESS, ELDERLY, INFIRM NURSING HOME PATIENTS DIED OF COVID-19 because Cuomo ORDERED the homes to admit highly contagious sick people… this heartless Bacciagalupe HAD THE TEMERITY, THE GALL, TO… BLAME THE NURSING HOMES FOR OBEYING HIS ORDER!

This reminds us of the boy who killed both of his parents, then begged the court for mercy because… he was an orphan.

BUT IT GETS EVEN WORSE!

Secretly, undercover, Cuomo slipped into the NY State Budget… a LAW (by TOP DOWN fiat) GRANTING NURSING HOME EXECUTIVES IMMUNITY FROM CIVIL AND CRIMINAL LIABILITY IN THE CASE OF COVID-19 DEATHS. The fact that they gave this bastard’s campaign a million dollars had NOTHING to do with it, right? Unless the spineless democratic legislature in the State House rescind this Stalin-Sized order, all the politically-connected murderers will get off SCOTT FREE.

NEOTENY




Don't Be A Sheep

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. Can you take an honest look at the state of the nation today and… doubt that?

Click this Image To Read About The Book

In today’s America, fear addiction runs rampant. News media and politicians thrive on creating and sustaining fear. There is no reason to live your life in fear. Wake up to the way orthodox religion & Other “Powers That Be” control the population THROUGH FEAR. An invaluable treatise, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to lead a free, independent life. A life WITHOUT FEAR… Some people will no doubt be offended and shocked by this book’s stance against organized religion seeking to control our lives. This book bravely exposes the way the manipulators of fear seek to continue their hold on us and hold onto their power by any means necessary. The new introduction puts the book in its historical context and shows why it is still relevant today.

Review Excerpt: “This book explains in crystal clarity HOW and WHY unconscionable individuals and organizations saturate others with FEAR every single day. It’s been going on as long as people have been thieves and hungry to steal the freedom and goods of others. We are barraged with FEAR TACTICS daily by those who eagerly take money out of our pockets; usurp the freedom from our lives and keep us as slaves by clouding our thoughts with FEAR.” Read more HERE

Democrats Hate Democracy

Look: I know full well that Senator Sanders is a fraud who found a chance to goose up his career when he saw young people attracted to Occupy Wall Street – so he cunningly glommed onto the OWS agenda and publicized it as his own. Unprincipled, yes, but shrewd.

I know Sanders has spent years all but ignoring his $174,000 a year job in the US Senate, preferring instead to enrich himself by peddling books of bromides published via multi-million dollar corporate deals; deals he made while on the taxpayer’s payroll.

I am aware that the Sanders history shows us that aside from his corporate deals, the man has been the consummate failure; a politician with no singular achievement at which voters may point with pride to say HE DID THAT.

I also understand that like the hapless Hubert Horatio Humphrey, and the emotionally needy adult-child William Jefferson Clinton, all that Sen. Sanders EVER wanted in his life was to become the President of the United States. About such driven candidates I can only repeat the warning of the late Christopher Hitchens: “[P]eople should be distrusted who are running for therapeutic reasons, because the Presidency doesn’t calm those demons, as [Bill Clinton] has already proved.”

I get all that.

But in spite of it all, I firmly state that
calls for the old mountebank to leave the
race for the democrat nomination are
UN-AMERICAN and ANTI-DEMOCRATIC.

Like it or not, Sanders qualifies for the office and he has wide support. That gives him EVERY RIGHT IN THE WORLD TO RUN.

You don’t like that? You say it damages your preferred candidate? Well, if one old demagogue running for the nomination can kill off your preferred candidate, then quite clearly your candidate, I believe the correct word is, “sucks.”

I will say it again: Sanders has every right to run. In fact, I will go that one better: I prefer a Pres. Sanders over a Pres. Biden. Why? From where I sit, it looks like Joe Biden only entered the race so that his avaricious, grasping family can climb back onto the Obama/Biden-Era gravy train, which they obviously see as their incontrovertible right. And so, in a classic case of ruthless (and heartbreaking) Elder Abuse, the Biden Clan have pushed a clearly fading old man into running for the presidency one last time. Should Biden win, I can see that family all over the map, wheeling and dealing from Yucatan to Ukraine, in the style of their pals the Clintons and the Rodhams. The hell with that!

Biden Family Rich

America has already endured one disorientated, doddering president who served as a front for others. And we’re STILL paying dearly for those Reagan years.

At least with Sanders we have the luxury of knowing that:
1) he’s only personally corrupt – as his “book” deals show, and
2) as president HE WON’T GET A DAMN THING DONE.

That second point alone appeals to me. Right now, We The People have more than enough laws and acts and agencies mucking up our lives. Let’s give America a 4-year breather (if the old coot lives that long). To take that break, we need what Sanders alone offers: an ideologue incapable of compromising with anyone, and who thus can fulfill the quintessential role of the anarchist: bringing governmental “progress” to a full stop.

For Sanders to do this, because of his advanced age, he will need a similar goofball for his Vice President to take up for him should Sanders go to that great “Corrupt Book Deal In The Sky.” For his running mate, I’m thinking, oh… Bill O’Reilly. Hey, why not? After all O’Reilly’s a genuine HARVARD GRADUATE like Ted Cruz and Henry Kissinger and Al Franken. He’d be absolutely perfect, another Sanders-esque blowhard who can’t get along with people so he too, if he steps into the presidency, won’t get anything done.
Sanders O'Reilly

Now, does the foregoing mean that
I will vote for Sanders?

For one thing, after 2016, I don’t vote for democrats because they and their Super Delegates rig elections and, as the current calls for Sanders to drop out of the race show, democrats utterly despise and disdain elections. They call this “UNITY”…

In politics, UNITY means “DO IT MY WAY OR SCREW OFF.”

[As an aside, because small-minded people invariably bring this up: I don’t vote for republicans either. For over a 100 years now the government has gone from democrat control to republican control to democrats to republicans and on and on with the result being… precisely where we are now. A pox on both their houses. Instead, I find a candidate whose policies tally with my own, and cast my vote while heeding the words of a true Socialist, Eugene V. Debs, who said, “I’d rather vote for what I want and not get it than vote for what I don’t want and get it.” Are we all clear on this, boys and girls?]

In 2016, after democrats screwed Sanders with his pants on, the old relic had FOUR FULL YEARS in which to build a third party. With his enormous mailing list and donor base, building a new party was more than a pipe-dream. He could have done it. But did the inept, sniveling little codger do that? Nope. Instead, THE OLD FART WENT AND SIGNED A LOYALTY PLEDGE THAT ALLOWS THE DNC CHAIR TO SELECT THE NOMINEE. Loyalty PledgeSo, dear democrat voters, by signing that pledge Senator BS showed that considers your vote MEANINGLESS. And you want me to cast a vote for such a putz? Not on your tintype, and Sanders probably owns one… of himself.

Next, and just as important, I NEVER EVER VOTE FOR MILLIONAIRES. That alone is a deal-breaker and there is no getting around it or talking me out of it. Especially not by saying Sanders is just a “small” millionaire and other politicians have far more money than he has. No soap, toots. That’s as asinine as claiming that a woman who is 3 months pregnant is really NOT pregnant because other women are 7 months pregnant. Throughout history millionaires have proven themselves to be seriously bad news for the working people. Anyone who votes to put rich people into political office forfeits the right to whine about our government not helping the working people. You vote for the rich? Then you asked for it, baby. Vote for millionaires, and you get JUST WHAT YOU DESERVE, meaning the class system we have now – but what’s worse, you stick the rest of us with it too. So thanks for nothing.

Thus, Sanders The Senescent loses me on two counts: he’s a crooked democrat who supports their corrupt election rigging and he’s a multimillionaire. But even though I could never vote for such an obvious fraud as Sanders, I will enthusiastically stand on the battlements with a broken beer bottle in my clenched fist to defend his right to run. That’s… DEMOCRACY. Democrats ought to try it sometime.

Up Date

This Addendum From Scott Ross

I would add three further marks against Sanders:
1) Against the urging of his own legal team, and in the face of tens of thousands of petitions from HIS SUPPORTERS, he did not, would not and – one assumes – at his core COULD not challenge the obviously corrupt 2016 primaries of the Hillary-run DNC;
2) his craven and foolish embrace of the Democrats’ asinine and dangerous Russiophobia; and
3) his campaign’s foreign policy adviser is Matt Duss, a former Center for American Progress employee who despite his alleged “progressivism” is nearly as reactionary as She Who Must Be Elected.
Those issues ALONE would keep me from casting a Sanders vote in 2020. That he thinks the organization that fucked him and disenfranchised (and demonized) his voters and all independents the last time will, miraculously, PERMIT him, whatever his final vote or delegate counts, to become the nominee suggests monumental self-delusion, at best. If Sanders can’t even stand up to the demonstrably corrupt DNC (cf., Iowa and the current hilarious Biden “surge”) who WILL he stand up to? Presumably, no one.

Never Trust A Cold War Liberal (Reposted)

February 11, 2020

THIS NEW QUOTATION, FROM THE SENILE SENATOR BS,
MAKES IT NECESSARY TO REPOST:



14611160_10202360169643397_7715071107652487310_n

 

Never trust a “Cold-War Liberal”
They are war-happy.
You can spot them by the repeated warnings they issue about Russia and China.
Mostly Russia.
Cold-War Liberals live in the past.
In a dangerous past.
But to them, in their old age, in their dotage, it is a glorious past.
They are elderly now and the past is all they have left.
It is who they are, because it is who they were.
They cannot look forward.
This is not a game.
The world needs new ideas and new plans.
The end result of the vaunted “thirty years of experience” Hillary Clinton’s “Withers” cite for their candidate is… precisely where we are right now.
The people who put us here, right here, where we are right now, did it deliberately and they will not change things. This is what they want.
Unless we got here by accident, in which case, that much-touted “thirty years of experience” means absolutely nothing.
And if you want to see change: YOU ARE A SOCIALIST TOOL OF PUTIN AND CHINA!!!!
You know you have heard this empty imprecation again and again.
So how can you expect change from someone who denounces change?
See how cold-war senility works?
They got away with that garbage in the 50s and 60s.
These old people saw their dead parents doing it.
So the Cold-War Liberals need to re-live their youth.
But their youth has evanesced.
It is no more.
It is gone.
Elect a Cold-War Liberal aching to recreate her or his heyday of youth and potency, and there will be war, misery, and blood. These old people need war, misery, and blood to feel alive again.
The day of the Cold-War Liberal is over.
THIS is what the exemplary, much-admired Cold-War Liberal had to say about war:
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. This much we pledge–and more.”
That means regime change.
That means war.
That is from a liberal hero.
55 years ago.
We step back to those days at our own peril.
The world is different now. We cannot attack with impunity.
People hit back.
Remember that:
People hit back.

UPDATE:

Now the NY Times reports that Hillary Clinton, in a secret speech revealed by WikiLeaks, has announced her passion for SECRET WARS (click here).
She touts the joys of “covert-intervention,” to use the NY Times euphemism.
Covert-Actions. 
CoIntelPro was covert action
Installing the Shah as dictator of Iran was covert action
Killing Salvador Allende was covert action
Overthrowing Guatemala was covert action
The Bay of Pigs was covert action
The bloodthirsty School of the Americas was covert action
LBJ’s Operation Chaos was covert action
Sabotaging the Democratic Primary was TYPICAL covert action
Henry Kissinger is covert action personified
And Mrs. Clinton LIKES THIS?
Wants MORE of it?
Is she insane?
The Times writes: “Mrs. Clinton gave a tough-minded, realpolitik answer to the question of how to handle a problem like Syria. If the best chance of success was to act secretly inside that country, she made clear, she had no problem doing that.”
Oh… She has no problem doing that? How lofty of her.
Unfortunately for this elderly
termagant THE WORLD HAS A PROBLEM WITH YOU DOING THAT, you war-crazy maniac!
Mission Impossible was TV FANTASY. Not a Foreign Policy Primer.
I will not vote for more wars.
Especially secret wars. You know, like NIXON IN CAMBODIA which led to this:

1971

This is a democracy, despite what this Cold War Neoliberal thinks.
As to the Times: saying her call to secret war is “tough-minded, realpolitik” is not journalism, it is editorializing. You are putting lipstick on that pig.

How much more NIXONIAN will Clinton reveal herself to be?
She may well take the White House, this bloodthirsty Cold War Neoliberal, but not with my consent.

new-nixon

FURTHER UPDATE:

Late in October, Tim Kaine CONFIRMED that Hillary’s first action will be to ask Congress for unlimited war powers.
As with all neocons, which the Cold War Liberals have spawned, Hillary actually believes that in wartime the nation will unite. She is a big step into the past. Cold War Liberals are in their dotage now and should just take the gold watch then go home to their republican grandchildren.

ALTERNATE HISTORYThis jingoistic fantasy from 1947 presents the sort of INSANITY Cold War Liberals still have orgasms over. To this day these senescent twits obsess over Russia. We still hear to this day, for example, that it’s those crafty Russians who somehow whipped up racial animosities in America, bringing about lynchings and Jim Crow. 

A classic piece of vintage paranoia from 1947 – the dawn of Harry Truman’s Cold War. Just two years earlier, Soviet Russia was our ally. Then suddenly, they became The Evil Empire bent on taking over America. This comic book presents a wild fantasy on the theme of America falling to the dirty commies. A valuable look at a moment in history, painstakingly restored digitally and enhanced! No other version looks this good!
A must for understanding the roots of today’s lingering fear and hatred of Russia and the Russians.
It all traces back to our government’s Post-War need for a perpetual enemy in order to “unify” the people and keep America on a permanent wartime military footing. As we see to this very day, in the Pentagon’s bloated and ever-expanding budget as well the constant saber-rattling of elderly politicians and the more aged of the Baby Boomers… it worked all too well.

A Civil Question About Brexit

February 6, 2020

It’s over. It’s done. IL FINITO. After a seemingly endless period of hemming and hawing, Britain has finally said ADIEU to the European Union. Well, we all knew this was coming. My question about this state of affairs is a simple one: Now that the Brits have left, when will the other European countries started bombing them? When do the invasions commence? After all isn’t that what happened in our own history when some Southern states left the American union in the 1800s? It always struck me as odd that a nation built upon seceding from England would go berserk when some of its own states wanted independence. What is the United States, the Mafia or the Central intelligence Agency? Once you join you stay in for life? Forever? You can’t leave? Why not? Even Ireland now has divorce. Cutting its ties with a “parent” nation is how this country was founded. Should we not have honored the Southern states request to do the same? The damage the Civil War did to the nation remains with us. We see it almost daily in the news.

In terms of carnage the American Civil War ranks right up at the top of the list, at #1 as our most brutal, bloody conflict:
405,399 Americans died in World War II.
25,000 died in the Revolutionary war.
The death toll in the civil war stands at 620,000.
America suffered 50,000 casualties at Gettysburg alone.

There had to have been a better way… Suppose President Lincoln and the Congress had said to the Confederate States of America: You want to set up shop on your own? Okay. We see your point. You’re free to go. Nobody understands better than us the concept of breaking ties with an existing government that you find disagreeable. We once wrote an entire document based just on that notion. It’s called Declaration of Independence: “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve political bands which have connected them with another…” So, yeah, we really do get it. Been there done that, right? So hasta la vista, Bubba. See you around campus. Um, there’s just one more thing. About those slaves…

You want your slaves? Go for it. But just remember this: as a sovereign nation you’ll have to have treaties with us. And we simply won’t sign treaties and buy your products if they result from slave labor. So good luck with your cotton harvest. It won’t do you a bit of good. Our factories will never use it. We will outlaw slave products and get cotton elsewhere. We can also live without peanuts very well, bless your heart. Oh, and we have treaties in place around the world which you will no longer be party to. So we will make sure that no other nation deals with you until you bestow full freedom and citizenship rights to those slaves.

Can you imagine what that would have been like? This is pretty much how the world convinced the repressive South African government to get rid of their odious apartheid system. And, while we’re on the subject, that was more of a plan than Lincoln had. Oh, sure, he delivered his Emancipation Proclamation. But that only freed slaves in the states that rebelled, and the CSA did not recognize the USA so the proclamation was a feeble gesture at best.

All Lincoln fixated on was “saving” the Union come hell or high water and nothing or nobody mattered. As Honest Abe wrote to newspaper man Horace Greeley on August 22, 1862.

“I would save the Union. I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution. The sooner the national authority can be restored; the nearer the Union will be ‘the Union as it was.’ If there be those who would not save the Union, unless they could at the same time save slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save the Union unless they could at the same time destroy slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union.” (Emphasis in Lincoln’s original)

Now I ask you: Does that sound like a man who passionately wanted to end the horrid, unspeakable practice of using human beings as farm machinery? Not to me it doesn’t.

Europe has a barbaric history of almost constant warfare and invasion among its constituent societies. I did not refer to “nations” because war in Europe was a way of life even before the continent had nations. All the borders of the various European countries represent places where warring factions got tired of fighting each other and grudgingly worked out a truce. Till the next time.

Just think of the millions of soldiers and civilians who died in the so-called World War that started in 1914 and ended in 1945 (with 20 years off after 1918 to regroup). About 125 million got wiped out. In THUD’S own family, during the first part of the war my own Grandfather fought in the German Cavalry while his American Brother-in-Law fought “Over There” with the Allied Expeditionary Forces. And they loved each other! How twisted is that? It’s like the tales of brother fighting brother in our own Civil War. Twisted, yes, and utterly pointless.

The part of the 20th Century European bloodbath we call World War 2 killed off a staggering 3% of the entire world’s population. That’s as much as the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic wiped out. Something had to be done about that. The EU was it. The whole point of the European Union was to bundle all the historic European enemies together with a common monetary unit so there would, theoretically, be no financial profit from invading and conquering each other. That’s how little they trusted each other even at the end of the 20th Century.

So now after coy hesitation, Britain has pulled out. Already there’s talk of them returning to the fold – just as the CSA would very likely have eventually returned to the USA. But whodathunk that Britain would want to go back within a few months? Maybe bombing and invading is not necessary after all… whodathunk…




Since we’re tinkering with history here,
how about this?

A classic piece of vintage paranoia from 1947 – the dawn of Harry Truman’s Cold War. Just two years earlier, Soviet Russia was our ally. Then suddenly, they became The Evil Empire bent on taking over America. This comic book presents a wild fantasy on the theme of America falling to the dirty commies. A valuable look at a moment in history, painstakingly restored digitally and enhanced! No other version looks this good!
A must for understanding the roots of today’s lingering fear and hatred of Russia and the Russians.
It all traces back to our government’s Post-War need for a perpetual enemy in order to “unify” the people and keep America on a permanent wartime military footing. As we see to this very day, in the Pentagon’s bloated and ever-expanding budget as well the constant saber-rattling of elderly politicians and the more aged of the Baby Boomers… it worked all too well.
