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…

Decoding The Cult Of Thunberg

September 23, 2019

Ok. We need to differentiate between
CRITICISM and ATTACK.

So many people see a child and right away their BULLSHIT DETECTOR goes on the fritz. Well, pay attention, because today we’re getting heaps of manipulative bullshit from the child Greta Thunberg. The people who handle her have clearly seen to it that she is EXTREMELY WELL TRAINED in the art of deflecting criticism. With that in mind, I shall dissect her cheap rhetorical ploys.
Overall, Thunberg has been well-coached in the use of TWO FALLACIES OF LOGIC:

1) She opens her speeches with the fallacy of logic called POISONING THE WELL – by denouncing in advance anyone who takes a critical look at her, as A HATER.

2) Then, after characterizing all who dare question her as mean old adults, Thunberg employs the fallacy of logic called AD MISERICORDIAM. She does this by first saying, with voice quivering, “I’m JUST a child!” – an odd statement for a normal 16-year old. After that, Thunberg recites a list all her supposed infirmities: Asperger’s Syndrome… ADHD… OCD… Eating Disorders… High-Functioning Autism… and this winner: SELECTIVE MUTISM.
With Selective  Mutism, Thunberg suddenly loses the ability to speak to anyone outside her family. How convenient that she gets stricken with this “condition” whenever she is asked serious questions that challenge her narrative.

It’s all typical DEMAGOGUE bullshit, and if the gullible people who fall for it ever heard an adult speaking like this – someone like, say, oh, Donald Trump – they would denounce the speaker in a New York minute. Because they would listen critically.

People have fallen for this routine over and over.

Bana Alamed, the manufactured child savior of Syria, comes to mind.

As does the doe-eyed child who called herself Nayirah.

kuwaiti-nurse-nayirah-gives-a-fabricated-testimony-to-the-congressional-human-rights-caucus-us-congress-washington-dc-10-october-1990

Claiming to be a nurse from Kuwait, Nayirah went before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990, during the run-up to the Iraq Invasion. There, this child delivered completely fabricated testimony about Iraqi soldiers wrenching new-born babies from incubators (children again!) to die in agony on a cold hospital floor. Millions of Americans uncritically swallowed up that patent nonsense, and as a result thousands of people died and uncounted more were maimed and/or left destitute in a pointless war. This child’s parents (she is the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, then the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States) in conjunction with script writers from the American PR firm Hill & Knowlton, turned this girl into a war criminal at the age of 15. Those who fell for it are equally complicit. And to this day, nearly 30 years later people keep falling for this tactic.

More recently, starting in 2014, we saw the horrific case of Devonte Hart and the rest of the children in his “extended family”.

Devonte Hart hug

At the age of 12, Hart’s popularity peaked when he was photographed doling out hugs in the streets of Portland, OR, at a protest over the lack of an indictment in the notorious Ferguson, MO shooting case. At the time, I told people who fell for this obvious baloney that it was all a set up. Looking at many photos, more than that one famous one, showed it was clearly a manipulated event. For pointing this out, I was denounced as, you guessed it, a Hater and a Racist.

180328212418-hart-family-exlarge-169

Needless to say, I heard no apologies from those credulous people later, in 2018, when the whole sordid story came out. It turned out that a pair of heartless adults who acted as parents had used Devonte and a bevy of adopted kids to carve out a career for themselves by expertly shuttling the children from one public tragedy to another, all in the name of “Social Justice.” At each location, Jennifer and Sarah Hart would fabricate media glurge in the form of sappy, but reassuring, “interracial” Kumbaya photo-ops complete with tears and hugs. This scam came to an abrupt end when the manipulative women who had amassed this politically correct minority “family”… brutally killed all the children in a gruesome murder/suicide. Reporters investigating the family – only after the murders – uncovered more than a decade of abuses committed by Jennifer and Sarah Hart.

Hart Mugshot

Sarah Hart’s mug shot December 27, 2010, arrested for misdemeanor domestic assault and malicious punishment of a child.

The children, it emerged, were routinely beaten and starved when not on display to serve the whims of the adults. Why didn’t reporters investigate the family before this hideous ending? After all, records existed documenting the assaults on the children by the two women. The whole story was there for anyone to see. IF they bothered to look. So why did the story not come out in the press until it was too late? Because of… The Children. Anyone who dared to apply critical thinking to the obviously fishy situation prior to the mass murder was immediately denounced as a racist and a child-hater. See the pattern? It’s about squelching thought and discussion.

The immediate public acceptance of anything, no matter how idiotic, that issues forth from the mouth of a pint-sized Charlie McCarthy IS PRECISELY WHY the people controlling Thunberg have gone out of their way to use a child for their purposes. Children, properly trained, act as shields for their controllers as surely as the National Rifle Association provides cover for politicians. Children inhibit open and frank conversation, and conversation of any sort is the last thing a demagogue wants.

Judging from the jaw-dropping admiration children inspire, they are granted immunity from criticism – after all, they’re so cute. And honest. And far too many adults swallow it without giving what these children say a moment of critical thought.

That’s why this game pops up again and again and again. After “The Angry Greta Thunberg Show” has run its course, and it will as surely as you can say “David Hogg” or “Emma Gonzalez,” we shall undoubtedly be treated to another seemingly precocious pubescent pipsqueak filling the void with a Life-Or-Death message. In terms of marketing, having a malleable child deliver the pitch is the next best thing to finding a puppy that speaks. Woof Woof, y’all…

Paper Moon


With Thunberg, once again, FEAR gets trotted out – and once again through a child – so that you and I will get manipulated into UNCRITICALLY ACCEPTING a line of BULLSHIT that is used to sell us things we do not need. In this case, any product labeled GREEN. It’s the same way people not that long ago fell for OATBRAN in everything – and before that CHLOROPHYLL. Buy GREEN or… we will all die!!!
This kind of marketing works, especially when marketeers use children to pitch the horrors facing us. That technique, especially invoking THE CHILDREN, is an old –  dare I say VENERABLE? – technique. Why? Because… it works. Here is a perfect example of the way a swindling demagogue manipulates people through fear. Note the many appeals to the heart, from patriotism, history, morality, fear and… THE CHILDREN.

The more you know about THE MERCHANTS OF FEAR and their methods, the less likely you are to fall for their line of bullshit. Here is a book, written 100 years ago, that explains this. I have written the introductory material for a new version.

EXTRACT FROM AN AMAZON REVIEW:

Please, everybody! Grab up a copy of UNMASKING FEAR! and read it!
Why? This book explains in crystal clarity HOW and WHY unconscionable individuals and organizations saturate others with FEAR every single day, which tactic is not new, it’s been going on as long as people have been thieves and hungry to steal the freedom and goods of others. This book was penned in 1919, and while the clothing styles have changed, the innards remain the same!
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. In 1919, Lloyd Kenyon Jones framed his arguments against the rules of early twentieth century organized religions, and how they frightened many away from independent thinking by threats of devils and hellfire, but hypocritically altered their policies when parishioners backed away. Was God wrong when the Church said that anesthesia was the ‘work of the devil,’ and if so, why did God change his mind? I would ask in 2018, are all of the Catholic people who went to hell for eating meat on Friday stuck down there forever, even though the meat thing is no longer considered a sin, or did somebody make a mistake? Or, perhaps . . . eat a steak..?

2001: A Mistake Odyssey

June 17, 2019

As we near the 50th Anniversary of the moon landings, we will see an increase in the number of articles about Stanley Kubrick. Some will claim he faked the moon landings (ever see the film MOONWALKERS? Few did…). Many articles will write about Kubrick’s landmark film “2001: A Space Odyssey”. All the articles describing this film will get a crucial point dead wrong. With that in mind, I repost perhaps my most popular (judging by the viewer hits) blog post.
(The original is HERE)

Why Is This Hard To Get?
2001: A Space Odyssey
Has Only THREE Sections.

2001space004

The film 2001: A Space Odyssey is
divided into three sections:

1) The Dawn of Man
2) Jupiter Mission
3) Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite.

That is it. Just Three sections. Yet many people mistakenly write that it is in FOUR sections, with the second section not named. This from the prestigious WikiPedia:
“The film consists of four major sections, all of which, except the second, are introduced by superimposed titles.”
Wrong. Totally wrong.
There IS a title introducing the “second” section, but that section is not what they assume it is. The second section is clearly labeled “Jupiter Mission”. The lack of a title before the moon travel sections INDICATES that this is NOT a new section. Despite the machinery and space ships, this is STILL the Dawn of Man. This is why Kubrick makes his stunning leap ahead in time from the apes right to the modern humans. Do you see it? It is crystal clear. So, why do so many people make the false assumption that there is a second section immediately after the Dawn of Man but before the Jupiter Mission? Why do they insist it is an unnamed section AFTER the Dawn of Man? Does it offend them to think that even here in the 21st Century mankind is still primitive? Still in our dawn?

About that flight to the moon let me say it loud and clear: THAT IS NOT A SECOND SECTION. IT IS STILL THE DAWN OF MAN. Kubrick even WRITES IT OUT for people and they still miss it. The section with the apes and the scenes showing the human on his trip to the moon ARE BOTH HAPPENING IN THE DAWN OF MAN. The whole point of the jump-cut from the ape-men to the space shots is that WE ARE IN THE SAME PLACE. We are STILL the same creatures… The time between the two ages means nothing. It is the most brilliant cut in cinema history (so important that I won’t use the word “movie.” You can’t get more important than that.) Shots in the moon section confirm this, because they so richly echo the ape scenes – including the scene of the two rival “tribes” (American, Russian) in conflict over the watering hole as they drink. Can it be any more clear? We are still the same apes, despite the veneer. Look at the moon flight part again and you will see several echoes of the ape scenes. Many are quite funny!

Want further proof? Look at the world around you today. Can you see why Clarke and Kubrick say despite our feelings of modernity and superiority that we are STILL in the Dawn of Man even though it is the 21st Century? Do we seem all that civilized to you? Can you see why the writers/filmmaker show that the Dawn of Man covers a period of millennia?

It is simply a baseless assumption to say the film unfolds in 4 parts, with the second unnamed.
Folks, we are STILL living in the Dawn of Man.
And we will be judged harshly for it by history, should there even BE a future for humans.

WAR IS A RACKET!

Click Image For A Preview Of This Book!

Two-Time Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Smedley D. Butler’s world-famous essay on the horrors and the futility of war. Peeling away the patriotic veneer always used to get people to support war, Butler reveals – as only an insider can – why we go to war, who is behind it and who profits.

This edition contains a FACSIMILE of the original 1935 edition. And much more!

At the height of the Great Depression, a gang of Wall Street businessmen, alarmed by what President Franklin D. Roosevelt was doing to spur the economy, decided to overthrow the government and remove FDR. The plan – known as The Business Plot – called for rallying disaffected WW1 Veterans under a leader who could unite them. That man, these plotters, thought, was Maj. Gen. Butler. They tried to win Butler to their cause with a promise of making him the new national leader. They could not have been more mistaken!

This book has a special section detailing Butler’s role in revealing this treasonous plot. And for the first time, we present recently declassified documents from Smedley Butler’s FBI file!

Together with Butler’s original essay, this look at The Business Plot paints a more full picture of one of history’s great men.

A piece of vintage paranoia from 1947 – the dawn of Harry Truman’s Cold War. Just two years earlier, Soviet Russia was America’s trusted ally. Then, suddenly, they became The Evil Empire bent on taking over America.

What would they do with us once they got here?

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.

If You Vote… You Can’t Complain

April 5, 2019

A look at our current political free-for-all, from over 20 years ago…

Something to chew on during the never-ending presidential campaign, a campaign designed to wear you down. I, for one, will not pay attention to the parade of self-deluded candidates till the Summer of 2020. If at all…

The last of our 19-month fear-filled election cycles left millions of people addicted to fear. When it ended they couldn’t let go. They still argue about who “really won.” Millions of adults actually CRIED and sought therapy when their preferred candidate lost. And now they are at it again.

Nothing good comes from these exercises in masochism. Unless, of course, you sell “news”:

“It may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS,” Les Moonves, late of CBS said about the 2016 race. He called the presidential campaign a “circus” full of “bomb throwing,” and said he hoped it continues. “Most of the ads are not about issues. They’re sort of like the debates. Man, who would’ve expected the ride we’re all having right now? … The money’s rolling in and this is fun. I’ve never seen anything like this, and this going to be a very good year for us. Sorry. It’s a terrible thing to say. But, bring it on, Donald. Keep going,” said Moonves.

The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in…

This is why media whips up election fever so damn early. To sucker YOU into paying attention.

Yes, I know: It’s the most important election ever. The future of the planet depends on this election. And… THE CHILLLLLLDREN… Blah blah blah.

Pure marketing flummery.

You want to drive yourself nuts? Gai gezunterhait.

As I said above, I will not give these candidates any of my time till the middle of 2020, at the earliest. Most won’t last that long so why bother? I have better things to do.

END THE FEAR

Elections are all about FEAR. They are all about SCARING THE HELL OUT OF YOU.
People in FEAR don’t think straight. That’s why all the politicians will work you over with one phony crisis after another. A book written 100 years ago still applies. I wrote a new introduction to this volume that shows just how right this book is. FEAR is the great controller – and in America, since Harry Truman’s Cold War, we’ve been spoon fed one horror story after another. People raised in the Cold War times STILL SOIL THIER PANTS OVER RUSSIA. It’s too pathetic to be funny.

Malcolm and the “Liberal”

March 8, 2019

New York Radio Station WMCA, March 10, 1960.
The Barry Gray Show.

——–

   A fascinating 41 minute radio discussion from the start of the 1960s – almost 60 years to the day from today, as I post this. In this interview, Malcolm X shows himself to be a composed, persuasive, and persistent educator – not the wild-eyed violent terrorist that corporate media so desperately tried to make him out to be.

Radio Personality Barry Gray – Who Invented The Call-In “Talk” Radio Format

   Listen as Malcolm engages a white liberal who, for some reason, saw him as a threat. Worth noting that by the time interviewer Barry Gray died, in 1989, he was deemed a conservative. The discerning listener will no doubt hear the roots of that “conversion” in his rebuttals to Malcolm X.

   This interview provides a perfect example of what happens when an intelligent, well-informed person stands up to the typical liberal. In the face of cogent, lucid, and reasoned argument that shatters their façade, liberals invariably become zealous, hard-core conservatives. This is why I never trust self-described liberals. They will gut you every time if you don’t fall in line. These, of course, are the same people who crow endlessly about DIVERSITY and UNITY. Always remember what UNITY really means:

Has Anyone Ever Said: “I believe so strongly in unity that… I will do it YOUR way”? Ha!

   Barry Gray had once been known as a staunch foe of the very same right-wing McCarthyism that has, today, become a virtual religion for liberals who descend to shouting “TREASON” at everyone who disagrees with them. Revealingly, in this interview, Mr. Gray throws an unsubstantiated treason allegation at The Honorable Elijah Muhammad – based upon nothing more than a smear piece in a newspaper.

   File this under: Plus ça change… 

================================

Phil Ochs warned us long ago:

“Liberals are 10º to the left of center in good times but 10º to the right of center when it affects them personally.”

2019 PRODUCTS OF THE YEAR!

January 1, 2019

Yes, I am already ordaining Products of the Year. And no, I have not been paid for this.

The Pernicious Pale Penis People

First of two items selected, is a nifty little thing now necessary for all men in this current age of Neo-Puritanism where the least little double entendre tossed off at a party by a man can lead to life-threatening consequences and INSTANT labeling as a SEXIST RAPING monster. Thanks to the new crop of Mrs. Grundy blue-noses and politicians who take the pandering position that ALL ALLEGATIONS ARE FACT, we are headed back to that 1970s perverted form of faux-feminism that labels all heterosexual activity as rape – and worse yet, the age-old Madonna/Whore complex. Anything a man does can fall under this insane rubric developed by NY Times film critic Manohla Dargis: RAPEY. Yes, the John Wayne character kissing the Maureen O’Hara character in The Quiet Man strikes this bizarre person as, well, look what she wrote: “It’s exquisite; some might call it rapey.” Employing the FOX “news” trick of claiming that “Some People Say” in order to hide a writer’s own opinion, Dargis attempts to distance herself from her own statement. It is that whacky.
This sexual insanity happens in America every couple of generations. It is nothing more than America’s perverted version of the fictional Vulcan time of 
PON FARR but in reverse.

Yes, we all agree that Sexual Harassment of women is a very real thing that must be fought. 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 sexual harassment 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 snatch? That is the sign of a Witch Hunt, men, and now we see open season on The Pernicious Pale Penis People. Everything bad… is their 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.

FEAR FEAR FEAR!!

No doubt about it, the Powers that Be, through their highly paid “news” readers, among others, want us all to live in a state of never ending fear – it is a control thing and it is not new. Only the means of disseminating the fear have changed.
Using fear – coupled with hollow patriotism – to manipulate people was satirized in the play and movie THE MUSIC MAN. Look at the way the con-man whips up fear among the ignorant people and then leaves them hanging. Later, he will propose a solution. One that will, of course, line his own pockets. Behold!

Interestingly enough The Music Man takes place in 1919 – a time in American history steeped in fear. It was the age of the Palmer Raids, about which our school children are never told. It was the time of excruciating fear of… RUSSIA. As the book says, “there is nothing new under the sun.”

Also from 1919 come this little book that exposed the methods used by The Powers That Be to keep us in a constant state of fear so we may be easily controlled and, to mix metaphors, milked like mullets.

Click this Image To Read About The Book

The classic 1919 book now reissued with new introductions by… guess who (Ok. By ME!).
There is no reason to live your life in fear! Wake up to the way orthodox religion and 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. The new introduction puts the book in its historical context and shows why it is still relevant today as it was ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO when first published. Because they are still doing it today. This is a direct quotation from a New Year’s Day 2019 email from that supposedly Maverick/Liberal/Socialist politician Bernard Sanders about the 2020: “Not to get you too nervous, but the future of our country and the world is dependent upon which side wins that struggle.” What the hell is TOO NERVOUS? This is a scare tactic, pure and simple. And it is a clear sign of grandiose thinking. THE WORLD DEPENDS ON THE ELECTION? Grandiose thinking is a prime symptom of Narcissistic Personality Disorder – a term bandied about all too often today but one that is exemplified by that inflammatory statement from Comrade Sanders.

We still need UNMASKING FEAR.

As one reader notes: “By resurrecting and presenting again this slim volume ‘Unmasking Fear’ Eliot Camarena, along with his perceptive preface, exposes and dissects fear, this most useful tool in a propagandist’s playbook. In this small book are big ideas that show a clear but narrow path to developing the necessary attitude and finding the necessary tools to rip the mask from the face of fear and place it where it belongs: Firmly. Under. Foot.”

Ok. I’ll keep going. Another reader notes: “Please, everybody! Grab up a copy of UNMASKING FEAR! and read it! Why? This book explains in crystal clarity HOW and WHY unconscionable individuals and organizations saturate others with FEAR every single day, which tactic is not new, it’s been going on as long as people have been thieves and hungry to steal the freedom and goods of others. This book was penned in 1919, and while the clothing styles have changed, the innards remain the same!”

Laugh All You Will… Giuliani’s Right Again

August 20, 2018

    Remember the last time everyone laughed at Giuliani? It happened when he said that conflict of interest laws exempt the president. As it turned out, when the laughter and derision died down, that Giuliani stated the law correctly. The president, vice-president, members of congress, and federal judges do indeed enjoy exemption from these laws.

    And now, leaving the field of legalities, Giuliani has stirred the pot once again by making a statement that any freshman learns on the first day of Philosophy 101: there is no such thing as THE truth. That this seemingly controversial declaration comes as a shock to TV news media personalities does not surprise me. Over the years, I have spent a great deal of time with TV news media personalities and I assure you that these people will never get hounded by MENSA to join up (unless that elitist crowd needs publicity). Further, they have almost no awareness of the world outside of their studio and their insular community. In conversation, they display a glaring ignorance about the very events they purport to cover. On the whole, only one thing interests them: getting ahead in the TV news media personality business.

What Is Truth

    Did you ever play the party game of telephone? Then you know that the simple act of saying something and having people repeat it to others inevitably results in the message getting hopelessly garbled. Does that mean the people who change the message deliberately lied? And this happens at a party under stress-free conditions. Let us begin with the basics: Truth consists of that which people agree on as real. Any trial lawyer, such as Giuliani, can speak of the sheer unreliability of eyewitness testimony. As testimony goes, it always ranks as the least dependable evidence available.

CLICK IMAGE FOR STORY

     People who think they know “the truth” of any matter have closed minds. They comprise the fanatics of the world. Talk to somebody who… KNOWS and you will see what I mean. Such people confuse what they believe with truth.

     Four or five people can relate quite different accounts of the same incident without any of them lying. All can tell the truth as they see and understand. No two stories may match up. Yet the people do not lie, nor do they speak mistakenly. We all understand the world around us through the filter of our prior experience. We each determine truth based on what we know and bring to the event witnessed.

    “There is no such thing as the truth. The world does not exist independently of those who witness it. Because the world exists precisely between the world and its witnesses. Just as the sound of a drum is the relationship between a striking hand and the drum skin. If there is no skin on the drum it doesn’t make any sound.” Alan Watts, philosopher. Watts goes on to discuss the indisputable relationship between the seen and the one who does the seeing.

    I knew a person outraged by all the prostitutes parading brazenly in my neighborhood. He saw them everywhere. One evening, I took a walk with him. He grew more and more outraged with every block. And soon I saw clearly that he saw any young woman in a short skirt as a prostitute. This man knew the truth. No matter what the situation, he always knew. And he continued this way right up to the day of his suicide. He simply could not live in the world he saw. His truth killed him.

    Believing in the existence of an objective truth makes as little sense as believing that photographs show reality; that pictures don’t lie. Only a fool, a religious fanatic, or a lunatic will claim to have a perfect and completely objective memory combined with unerring skills of observation. People who know denounce all who remember things differently as liars. They know that only a liar will contradict THE truth. No other explanation can suffice for the absolutists who know THE one and only truth. Think… Capt. Queeg.

    Getting back to legalities and testimony, consider the courtroom oath. While the text will vary from state to state it includes, in almost all cases, a variation of an imposing question that asks if the witness will swear that “the testimony which you will give to the court, in the issue now trying, shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”

    When asked if you will deliver such testimony, the correct answer is, of course, NO. Such an oath sets an impossible standard. Nobody knows the whole truth. We only know what we experienced and even then we color it to fit our own concepts and feelings. To reply to such a question properly, we can only promise the court to answer questions honestly and relate events as we recall them.

    Try this: Go to a party and then, a year later, ask everyone who attended to tell you what happened at party. See what you learn about the party… Now imagine asking the same people about more important events under the stressful conditions of a trial or an official interrogation or deposition.

    Giuliani makes a completely valid and time-honored point – and to deny it says way more about the people who laugh at him than they may wish to reveal.
