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!


Best Casting EVER!

June 10, 2020

Today I sing the praises of a rarely-honored class of working person: The Casting Director. Matching the right performer to a given part takes luck and insight and, often enough, inspiration. Throughout Show Biz history we have seen marvelous, CLASSIC work by casting directors:

Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce

Barbra Streisand as Fanny Brice

Hattie McDaniel as Mammy in Gone With The Wind

Speaking of GWTW… This is Brilliant Casting

Then there is the unexpected: Taking A Chance On a “Cutsie” Television SitCom Actress…

So many more examples flood into my mind: Robert Preston in The Music Man… Putting Laurel with Hardy… Judy Holliday in Born Yesterday… All prime examples of casting work.

But for me, the winner of the all-time best piece of casting goes to either the unnamed genius of a Casting Director of, or Stanley Kramer, the producer of, 1963’s all-star comedy extravaganza: It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Why? No mere photograph will suffice. First a foreshadowing:

OUCH! Not only do my ears ache, but every bone in my body aches just to know the name of the unsung genius who listened to Ethel Merman singing and posed the question, “Can you imagine THAT coming out of… your MOTHER-IN-LAW?”

IMAGINE NO MORE! Here we go!…

In one fell swoop, whomever ’twas who cast Merman in this rôle nailed exactly how billions of married men feel. Listen to that husband! When brutalized by the World’s Worst Backseat Driver, he feebly mutters, “You’re right. You’re right.” Sigh…

Years later La Merman took a crack at killing Disco:

But for me, because of MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD, Merman is always and forever the quintessential termagant, shrew, harridan, virago, harpy… unrepentant battle-axe. Filled with certitude concerning the ineptitude of the man her daughter brought home and married.
This is the one performance that made men all over the world heave a sigh of relief and say, about their life, “Things could be worse.”
And once again, cinema communicates around the world…

While original “Road Show” release of this film ran three and a half hours, the film underwent ruthless cutting by theater managers, all to get in more showings. The standard theatrical version ran two hours forty minutes. Home video releases added some footage over the years. Not long ago CRITERION put together the most complete version extant clocking in at three hours and seventeen minutes – including some recreations with location stills accompanied by the original audio.

Is it a wacky comedy? Or is it a scathing look at American capitalism? Who cares! I just love that horrid Mother-In-Law!

If you can’t handle over three hours of visual and verbal abuse at one shot, try one of the trailers:

Frightened People Simply Do NOT Get It…

Some People Get It

Click for Story

“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:

Cuomo Criticized

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!

Cuomo Blames Nursing Homes

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.

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

Take a trip through time with MOJO BROS. BOOKS as we look back at an assortment of slightly bawdy Bar Napkins from years gone by. BevNaps of this sort became a fixture at the 1950s Suburban Cocktail Party, and their ribaldry was part of the charm associated with long-stemmed cocktail glasses, the swirling of Gin, Vermouth, and ice, the leer of comedians like the famed Groucho Marx – whose own like of Bawdy BevNaps we proudly feature in this volume. While considered tame by today’s standards, these items tickled the funny-bone of generations who lived before “R” and “X” rated movies routinely streamed into the home. Yes, to some these will seem sexist, maybe even offensive. What can we do about the overly sensitive? Those features are precisely what makes these items so quaint and nostalgic.

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?

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.

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.

Take a trip through time with MOJO BROS. BOOKS as we look back at an assortment of slightly bawdy Bar Napkins from years gone by. BevNaps of this sort became a fixture at the 1950s Suburban Cocktail Party, and their ribaldry was part of the charm associated with long-stemmed cocktail glasses, the swirling of Gin, Vermouth, and ice, the leer of comedians like the famed Groucho Marx – whose own like of Bawdy BevNaps we proudly feature in this volume. While considered tame by today’s standards, these items tickled the funny-bone of generations who lived before “R” and “X” rated movies routinely streamed into the home. Yes, to some these will seem sexist, maybe even offensive. What can we do about the overly sensitive? Those features are precisely what makes these items so quaint and nostalgic. So come on back to a time when we laughed at the “Battle of the Sexes” and didn’t hire lawyers to sue people over making gently risqué jokes.

Don’t Be A Mark

February 15, 2020

You think these people have changed since 2016?
The smirking fair-haired chap below is democrat stalwart RICHARD GEPHARDT – one of the founders of the Democratic Leadership Council, along with the odious Clintons and the world’s biggest hypocrite, that major pot-head Al Gore who helped wage the war on… pot smokers.

Click For Article

THESE are the behind-the-scenes “Leaders” democrat voters support out of sheer ignorance, hatred, and baldfaced stupidity. And by “support,” I mean anyone in that party. If you participate in this nefarious group of neo-liberal money-grubbers YOU are part of the problem. Unless you honestly believe that electing democrats will make things better. In that case you may be well served by having a psychiatric team look into your symptoms…
(AND NOTE THAT IN 2016 WE WERE STILL TALKING ABOUT “SINGLE-PAYER”. Since that time these con-artists moved the whole conversation from Single-Payer to Medicare For All – which will leave the insurance companies in charge and still bankrupt millions of Americans annually, so they can apply for Medicaid just as the democrats start to dismantle the program. Thanks, saps! By demanding Medicare for All instead of SINGLE-PAYER, you helped Gephardt KEEP HIS VILE PROMISE TO THE INSURANCE EXECUTIVES.)

Cuomo Medicaid copy

THIS is the classic 1940 study of Con Artists – including politicians. Reading this book will show exactly how today’s millionaire democrats so easily shifted the conversation from SINGLE-PAYER healthcare to MEDICARE FOR ALL which is run by insurance companies. Medicare is USELESS without private insurance. And the Drug part is ALL run by insurance companies.
The hallmark of a con is that the marks REFUSE TO ADMIT THEY WERE CONNED.
And so today people justify their healthcare gullibility with such inanities as: “Bernie’s got a WRITTEN bill that’s CALLED Medicare but it is really SINGLE PAYER.”
The guy who sells the Brooklyn Bridge also flashes written documents… it’s an essential part of any con.
BTW, THE BIG CON is the book that writer David S. Ward plagiarized for THE STING. The case was settled in favor of the writer of The Big Con.

Up DateWell THAT didn’t take long… See below for an example of how a self-deluded mark suckered by “Senator BS” excuses his call for Americans to TURN IN people who work with the EEEEEVIL Russians. It’s no big deal because… IT COULD HAPPEN TO ANYBODY. Guess that whole McCarthy Era was just a minor glitch… Coulda happened to anyone…

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…

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.

BE AFRAID!!!

February 3, 2020

Right now, the Centers for Disease Control estimates up to
26,000,000 flu cases this season in the USA alone
with up to 25,000 deaths.

If flu got a fraction of the coverage our hysterical media now
devotes to Coronavirus, maybe people would take
greater care. But the name of the game is
INVENT NEW FEARS to control the sheep…

Remember when Zika Virus was going to wipe us out?
Remember when EBOLA came along?
Remember that people were afraid to get
into elevators – lest THEY DIE?
I go back far enough to remember
the SWINE FLU hysteria.
These things always fizzle out,
but they deliver big ratings
for TV “news” programming.
So here we go again.

One Of My More Popular Posts…
Updated To Reflect Current
“Liberal” Lunacy

Brought To You By The John Birch Society

What sour, negative, scared people conservatives were in 1965. Alas, after listening to this LP, and 11 others from the same company (see link below) it’s clear to me that today’s liberals have become just like the conservatives of yesteryear who they hated so much: Using childish nicknames to disparage political opponents… calling for the impeachment of every elected official they don’t agree with… hysterical about The Kremlin plotting to take over America… demanding the blacklisting of anyone merely accused of some “heinous” crime… shouting “TREASON!” when they hear an opposing point of view. I find it ineffably sad.

This LP set the template for today’s hysteria-laden politics. Back in 1965 cuddly, avuncular actor Walter Brennan recorded a screed to warn about how commies and beatniks are plotting to take over America through LBJ’s War on Poverty. That record was called HE’S YOUR UNCLE, NOT YOUR DAD, released by KEY RECORDS, the show-biz arm of the far-right JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY. Here is how the record is described on the back cover:

“Hilarious, yet completely factual, this record album finds Walter Brennan throwing a million-candlepower floodlight on the evils of imported and duty-free collectivism in our nation. Then, it brings into vivid focus the brave moves we must make if we are to preserve the dream of our founding fathers to save our constitutional Republic from the man-made nightmare it is becoming.”

So about this nightmare… exactly how will the commies destroy the United States? According to Brennan and his writer, they will accomplish this nefarious nightmare plot through (are you sitting down?)… Area Codes and Zip Codes! Yup. Area Codes and Zip Codes are a commie plot devised in the WATTS GHETTO by Adam Clayton Powell! (Then Brennan slyly shifts gears to praise PATRIOTIC NEGRO AMERICANS – he even names two! – so it’s ok. No bigot he.) Brennan then launches an attack on free-spending “DO-GOODERS.” I never got that about conservatives. To them, doing good is bad? Yes. Because then, as now conservatives hate poor people. The poor are spongers. The poor are loafers. They are all welfare cheats riding high. For a while there, I thought I was listening to a Mitt Romney speech from 2012, or a Bill Clinton “End Welfare As We Know It” con-job (remember “The Era of Big Government Is Over”?), Or Pres. Obama slashing the food stamp budget by almost $9 billion – not a political Neanderthal from crying voters1965. Here, in an LP undoubtedly owned by the disgruntled parents of today’s conservatives and neo-liberals alike, you will discover the seeds of our current whining form of politics – in which adult babies CRY when their preferred candidate for office loses. The fact that such deeply immature people vote explains a hell of a lot about the present state of our nation.

A few years after recording this diatribe, Brennan refused to support Richard Nixon for president, claiming Nixon was a “do-gooder” liberal. Nixon! Nobody escapes Brennan’s angry conservative stereotyping and vituperation. So we get Welfare queens with 16 illegitimate children. African “head-hunters” populating UN delegations. Farm worker unions are all controlled by Castro. Of course, Castro was installed by our own State Department, according to the delusions presented here. No mention of Batista, the corrupt dictator who raped and pillaged the island of Cuba. No. Instead we hear about the Free Cubans Castro overthrew. Brennan knew Batista was good because… his corrupt regime repaid American foreign aide with 20% interest. All this man cares about is money. At times Brennan’s harangue sounds more like a psychotic accounting lesson than a man talking about “The Greatest Country In The World.”

Naturally, since this record is a product of the John Birch Society, international communist plots abound, abetted by what Brennan calls lazy student beatnik agitators. It may seem funny today, but overall this exercise in political rage and hate makes Archie Bunker sound like St. Francis of Assisi. And then, today, look at all the “liberal” hysteria over Russia and how Putin controls the White House… Plus ça Change, baby…

Listen as Brennan reveals that the LBJ administration is, according to “sworn affidavits,” filled with IDENTIFIED COMMUNIST AGENTS. How does Brennan know this? Sources include “ACCORDING TO THE GRAPEVINE.” It’s a riot! And today, it calls to mind the utter lunacy of so-called liberals like Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and Charles Schumer, always announcing some new BOMBSHELL political disclosure that invariably fizzles before the end of the day. With Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer, these “bombshells” all comes from “reliable unnamed sources”… When did these once-liberal Baby-Boomers morph into their conservative grandfathers? How did that happen? WHY did it happen?

Back to Uncle Walt… What would a right wing paranoia festival be without a rant against France? I’ll refrain from quoting that. It has to be heard. And get this… THIS WAS SOLD AS A COMEDY ALBUM. You know, like Woody Woodbury, Lenny Bruce, or Bill Cosby… So how are the jokes? Although the carefully chosen audience guffaws with wild abandon, most all of the alleged zingers just made me cringe. Witticisms like, “What did Italy ever give us? The mafia.” Yikes. He even tells a Jewish joke but, being essentially a coward as all conservatives are, he changes them to “Dutchmen.” I guess Brennan’s writers knew better than to screw with Jews.

PATRIOTIC TWADDLE

And what, I ask you, would a zany rightwing screed be without those homey but totally bullshit little stories that Paul Harvey once specialized in? This record does not omit them. For just two examples Brennan makes the utterly false claim that George Washington, as a result of his sacrifice to the nation, died broke. Old George was the wealthiest man of his time and at his death left an estate worth over $19 million dollars in today’s dollars. We should all be so broke. Brennan also tells the nonsensical story that Martha Washington had to melt down her silver tea service so the new nation could make coins. While there is no evidence whatsoever that she did this, what if she did? For a woman married to the richest man in America to give up her teaspoons hardly qualifies as a sacrifice. Now, had she given up all their slaves, THAT would have been a sacrifice for it would indeed have broken them financially.

MONEY IS ALL THAT MATTERS

This fixation on money and riches in this record is typical of the Goldwater republicans. As Brennan sums up his philosophy, he actually says that Life is merely a chase to get money to come in. How bloody sad! We all know that Life is so much more than that. But the creators of this thing dwell on money. This is all Brennan carps about: all the money being “wasted” on “do good” efforts. We get dollars and cents from him but nary a trace of compassion for the “loafers, spongers, welfare cheats, students” which all poor people must be. Stripping money out of government programs is justified, according to Brennan, because The Founding Fathers didn’t want a free ride. Tell that to their slave labor… In the world of this record, stealing money from the poor is designed to HELP them. But it is clear that what we have here is plain old greed, pure and simple. They crave the money in exactly the same way today’s conservatives DROOL when they think of the $2.7 Trillion surplus in social security. And yes, Brennan says that social security is a way to steal your money. This, again, is not limited to conservatives. Mrs. Clinton, in her disastrous 2016 campaign, promised to MEANS TEST Social Security while slashing its payments to elders. And she’s considered a liberal! How did we come to this state?

All the now-standard conservative and neo-liberal bullshit memes are here. This record is the acorn from which a rotted oak tree grew and now throws its feculent shade across the land.
