An Exercise of Extreme Arrogance

Reading headlines in this day and age can be disturbing to any intelligent soul, but on occasion, the sheer stupidity of the headline causes one to pause. Today on Drudge, one headline states: “Iranian military boats veer dangerously close to US warship.” Of course, this came from Fox News, the mainstream leader in warmongering headlines.

One would have to think that this must have happened just off the U.S. coastline, maybe in New York harbor, right? Wrong, it happened just off the Iranian coastline, in the Strait of Hormuz, a strait that borders Iran. It is used as a travel route by oil tankers, but the U.S. sends it’s warships there against and in defiance of Iranian law. Iran requires that prior permission be granted before any warship enters the strait, but this is ignored by the U.S. military.

To put this in proper context, if Iran illegally patrolled directly off the east coast of the U.S. with its warships, patrolling from New York to Florida, and a U.S. vessel came close to that warship, Iran headlines would read, “U.S. military boats veer dangerously close to Iranian warship.”

The Strait of Hormuz connects the Persian Gulf with the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea. At its narrowest point, the strait is but 21 miles wide, but the width of the shipping lane in either direction is only two miles, separated by a two-mile buffer zone.

Twenty one miles wide means that a U.S. warship traveling exclusively in the shipping lane, and we all know they travel outside that boundary, would be less than ten miles off the Iranian coast.

Does that mean, as it should, that heavily armed Iranian warships should have the right to travel ten miles off the U.S. coast? Of course not. That would be ridiculous, just as it is ridiculous for the U.S. military to claim that right directly off Iran’s coast.

This is asinine, and beyond comprehension, but the ignorant and apathetic American citizen will automatically consider Iran aggressive, without even having a clue where the Strait of Hormuz is located. Even with that common knowledge, many Americans would still assume that the U.S. has the right to go anywhere and in any country on earth it wishes, simply because the U.S. is exceptional.

My title of “An exercise of extreme arrogance” is in this case, a gross understatement!

Is It Just Me?

I rarely if ever write about the political process or politicians, as I consider the process itself to be ludicrous, and politicians to be the worst among men. With that said, here goes.

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that the next presidential election is looming, and the two “top” candidates chosen by the real controllers of this country, are Satan’s puppets in the likeness of clowns? Every four years, we all have to put up with the circus like atmosphere that surrounds what is said to be the most important election in the world. But how can the most important election in the universe come down to the new rulers of the planet being either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton? Each election, I am truly amazed that the lowest form of humans rise to the top, and seemingly, no one seems to notice that the joke is on them.

When speaking of Donald Trump, the terms fascist, hypocrite, liar, a user of the system for personal gain, and a comedic ignoramus, come immediately to mind, but considering evil, he pales in comparison in my opinion, to his rival, Hillary Clinton. When I think of this woman, someone I have been familiar with since before I left Arkansas in 1985, she has been involved in countless scandals that involve everything from drug running, war mongering, thievery, corruption on a grand scale, and murder, just to mention a few. The actual list is staggering.

Please under no circumstances, think that I adhere to the idiotic notion of voting for the lesser of evils. I never vote, and I think the process is a fool’s game, and nothing less than a recipe for disaster.

But isn’t it telling of the total ignorance and apathy of the indoctrinated masses when this is what is considered the most important event of the time. This is when the American society at large selects their master and king for the next four years, one of two of the most despicable humans in the entire country. If it were not so horrible and dangerous, it would be laughable. But it certainly is not funny.

For those who participate in this absurdity, get out there you sheep, and throw yourselves in the camp of one or the other of what can only be considered as nefarious slime. And then run to the polls with exuberance at the chance that your candidate will win the game! But while reveling in self stupidity, it might be wise to build your bunker.

The Deafening Silence Of Apathy, And Inevitable War

Today, the western world “weeps” for France. Yesterday, and still, it “weeps” for those sister countries facing an influx of immigrants, immigrants that are for the most part victims of western policies. Tomorrow, for whom will the west weep? I can say with some assurance that no tears will be shed for the plight of those being brutalized by the west under the orders of the United States and its political arm of enforcement, NATO.

In the scheme of things, Americans are backward, and instead of reality, they see only what they want to see, regardless of the horror that is just on the other side of the mirror. For most of the entire U.S. population, collective apathy is the driving force of opinion, and truth be damned. This attitude is convenient for the ignorant masses who revel in their false belief that they as a group are exceptional, simply because of where they were born. “American exceptionalism” is a self-aggrandizing myth, and the U.S. is exceptional mostly due to the fact that the controlling powers have driven this country to become the most evil nationstate on earth today. While the average individual citizen is not evil and is not committing heinous acts directly, he is complicit in the carnage due to his blind support of the state. This idiocy is now called patriotism. A more bastardized misunderstanding of that term could not be more evident.

Bold statements you say? Not really when one considers the scope of the American empire and the reach of its military industrial complex. Most all nations on earth, with few exceptions, fear the U.S. This fear is legitimate, as the U.S. attacks countries worldwide through raw aggression while clinging to the insane lie of national defense. In fact, it is executing murder, torture, and occupation worldwide, while enriching those war profiteers who sponsor the political system.

This behavior is intentional, and very dangerous. We are now on the verge of a new world war caused by those who control this U.S monster. The American masses who will be most affected by such an event, seem powerless to stop it, but would they even if they thought they could?

Make no mistake about it, wars and aggression by the U.S. and its allies are for nothing other than to achieve profit and power. The desired result is not peace or spreading democracy, as if actually spreading democracy would be anything but a disaster for all inflicted with such a corrupt system.

In this modern world, the most proficient killers are not common criminals, but the state itself. The agents of force behind the killing are lauded as heroes, and worshiped as protectors. The fact is that those in the military who do the bidding of the state are not defending the citizenry, but are simply enriching the government and its controllers who profit greatly due to war. This enrichment is certainly in dollars, but also in power. In order for this orchestrated war effort by the state to be successful, the people must be made to be afraid. That fear leads to a false trust in the state, and the ensuing gain of power by the state always leads to a loss of liberty.

Any number of human lives are sacrificed for the good of the power elite. It is not the politicians, or the generals, or the heads of defense companies, or the bankers whose lives are on the line. It is not their children on the front lines of battle either, it is always the children of others.

War is, and always has been, only for the sake of profit and power. Those in power are in control, and they are rich, while the rest are simply considered fodder for the purpose of perpetual war.

Pledging Allegiance (To the state) Requires the Mindset of a Slave

Allegiance: “the loyalty of a citizen to his or her government or of a subject to his or her sovereign.” (

For those who joyfully recite the “Pledge of Allegiance” to the flag and nationstate, it might first be instructive to understand that the author of this state worship pledge was a nationalist preacher who was a devout socialist. To read the pledge and not realize this is stark reflection on the so-called educational system of this country.

I am almost ashamed to admit that it took me until the age of 16 years to come to the conclusion that pledging allegiance to a flag and state was reprehensible. I certainly had doubts before that time, but did not take action against reciting such nonsense until later. That was not an easy thing to do, especially given my shyness at this age, but I was so compelled to never participate in such slave-like behavior, that I stood up in front of the entire student body of my high school, and refused to ever say the pledge again. I never have since, and that was in 1967. It took a little longer to do the same with the awful “National Anthem,” but that is another story.

I was reminded of the pledge lately, so I went back to research some of the negative and positive comments about this subject. This was very telling indeed. There are those conservatives who think the pledge is sacred of course, because state worship among the warmongering right is obvious. The left, on the other hand, normally have the same reverence for this atrocious pledge, but in many cases for different reasons. With that knowledge, it then became apparent to me that the biggest objection for the past several decades is the state mandated insertion of “under God.” What?

The basis for total contempt of this communistic pledge should lie in the fact that it was, and still is, an attempt by the state to control and form the minds of impressionable children. The language “under God,” does not change that fact. It is nothing less than a formula to train the young to grow up as state worshipers and good little nationalist citizens. All this of course is guised in the form of false patriotism, but that fakery has worked masterfully in the indoctrination of school children since 1945.

Collectivist minds always gravitate first toward the well being of  the “community,” and that thinking is meant to destroy individuality and self reliance in favor of the group. That is backward, and is the reason for this welfare seeking society that believes they are owed something at the expense of others.

We now live in a fascist oligarchy that is steeped in socialistic ideology. That could never have happened in a free society based on individual effort and talent, and any belief in self responsibility. The Pledge of Allegiance is just one step in the process of the complete indoctrination of children by the state into a belief system that allows for collectivist thinking over the individual. Ending the practice is the only sane solution.

Are Domestic Military Operations A Preparation For Martial Law?

I left this morning on my way to my office and encountered several military vehicles on the roadway. These were armored Humvees with active machine guns mounted in the turrets on top of the vehicles. Once I made my way closer to town, I saw military helicopters flying low and overhead in and around town. This was obvious support for those armed soldiers heading to the silos. That is imposing to say the least, but it is an atrocity against liberty. Domestic military operations, whether masked as training or not, should never occur.

I live outside a small town in central Montana. It is a remote region, but unique to this part of the country, especially in Montana and Wyoming, is the fact that hundreds of nuclear missile silos are scattered everywhere. I can barely drive more than a few miles in any direction without encountering these missile centers. There are 250 silos in this area, and they are virtually everywhere, one is even close to my home. This is very disturbing.

But also in the news this morning was the story about a tyrannical military “training” operation that will be implemented in seven Southwestern states at the same time. This military invasion is called Operation Jade Helm, and will be a realistic military operation set to begin in July, and last 8 weeks. 1200 elite soldiers will participate. Some are to do these “exercises” undetected among the residents in designated areas in states including Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado.

We already have militarized police, but in the future, probably the not very distant future, the military will not only train domestically, but will become a constant force around the country. These steps leading up to this have been incremental over quite a number of years, especially since the 9/11 events and coverup, but now it has become apparent that the government and military plan is to control the civilian population of this country by force.

Will Martial Law be the end result in what is now already a police state? I think so.

Intellectual Dishonesty Abounds

Apparently, many continue to argue very complicated issues without addressing the real facts, and without looking inward. These arguments then are fallacious, which is purposeful or based on total ignorance.

I do understand the issue of terrorism after years of research, and I realize that only the informed can honestly address this subject without prejudice. Most conversations are skewed toward isolated hate, cultural or religious ignorance, or false nationalism. Neither is useful, and can only bias any legitimate discussion.  In most of America, the talk concerning terrorism is completely dishonest, and lacking in objective truth. It is one sided, and all causation is ignored.

“Choosing words carefully” is always important, but does not guarantee the validity of the argument being presented. This is especially true when that argument is singularly targeted toward one conclusion without the benefit of fact or reason, a very common tactic in opinion pieces. Relativism generally rules the day.

Considering these parameters, any discussion about terrorism should include all terrorism and all participants. I will preface my statements by saying that all terrorism is heinous, evil, and unholy, regardless of the identity of the perpetrator, whether individual, group, or nation state. The problem with most is that only isolated terrorist acts, those committed by U.S. politically designated terrorists, are considered. Abominable acts of state sponsored and state sanctioned murder for political, monetary, and geopolitical reasons are ignored, and these are normally covered up by propaganda based on the false notion of “national defense.” In other words, U.S. wars of total aggression against countries that have never attacked, or even had the ability to attack this country, are never considered terrorism by the mainstream. Why?

Most of the identifiable Middle Eastern terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, the Taliban, IS, and most other so-called “freedom fighters,” especially in Syria, Libya, Ukraine, and Iraq, have been funded and armed by the U.S. This is now not arguable. In addition, waging brutal and aggressive war against nations that have never attacked us has caused massive blowback in the form of increased terrorism. In other words, the “War on Terror” (actually War of Terror) causes terrorism, and that is a planned and sought after response.

Why is occupation and mass murder committed by the U.S. government considered “God’s work,” while all other acts of politically motivated murder considered terrorism? Terrorism is terrorism, period! Try wearing the shoes of those innocent families being bombed daily by U.S. drones.

The Telling Nature Of A Dishonest Quote

I was sent this quote by a friend today:

“The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.” — Theodore Roosevelt

First, one has to understand the nature of the man behind the quote, and the time in which it was uttered. Theodore Roosevelt was a politician bent on power, he was the ultimate Progressive, he was a protectionist, he believed in high taxation of success, he was a believer in total executive tyranny, he was a warmonger, and he was a murderer. This of course is the short list of his evil ways.

As to what things would destroy America:

It is helpful for one to actually understand Teddy Roosevelt in order to analyze what he means in the above quote. “Prosperity at any price” might mean one thing to you or me, but to Roosevelt, it meant anyone using the free market to succeed, and having the audacity to be an aggressive competitor who was working for profit.

As to “peace at any price,” even the idea of peace offended the crazed warmongering Roosevelt , who was instrumental in creating his own private military force to slaughter innocent Spaniards in a war of aggression that went as far as the Philippines. He loved war and killing the entirety of his miserable life, so of course obtaining peace would never have been his desire.

“Safety-first instead of duty-first” was Roosevelt’s way of  expounding on his belief that all individuals were owned by the state, and that duty to the state was an all important necessity of life. His thinking, or lack thereof, simply exposed his contempt for freedom, and his love of nationalism and loyalty to the state apparatus.

“Love of soft living” is an interesting addition to this quote. Teddy Roosevelt if nothing else was a man of action, and had no use for relaxation or soft living. The problem with his particular thinking on this matter was that his idea of proper living was one of total control of others through regulation and force, and killing anything that moves. He loved to kill, and reveled in the slaughter of animals and men alike, with very little if any distinction.

Finally, Roosevelt said the destruction of America could be affected by the “get rich quick theory of life.” Really? Wars of aggression, federal destruction of the monetary system, horrific government regulations of all industry, high taxation, and an otherwise massive amount of corrupt government interference in the entire economy will not bring down America, but those who choose voluntarily to gain wealth as fast as they can will lead to the demise of this nation.

Most would read this quote and applaud at what would normally be perceived as the great knowledge of an important man and president, when in fact it is nothing more than the rhetorical dishonesty steeped in the cesspool of a twisted mind.

God Is On Our Side!

“The War Prayer” by Mark Twain

“O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle – be Thou near them! With them – in spirit – we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved firesides to smite the foe. O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it – for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.

With the recent “passing,” if only it were so, of Veteran’s Day, there is a lot to reflect upon about the evil horrors of war. More telling, is the reverence still afforded those who prosecute wars of aggression for the fascist corporate state apparatus that is the United States government, its military, its big financial system, and its war profiteering corporate sponsors. Don’t worry however, because the flags of the nation state are flying, the glory of war propaganda is rampant, and God is on our side!

Most of those, and there are few, who truly oppose war and all the carnage and destruction it brings, tend to concentrate the blame from the top down. I am guilty of this myself, but it is time to set the record straight. Yes, the cowardly president and his minions in Congress, as well as those generals who run wars, do start and prosecute these wars of aggression, but could they accomplish their unholy killing sprees in other countries without the support, whether active or implied, of those citizens who support war and those soldiers who do the actual contract killing? Of course not.

It is easy to blame Bush, Obama and all the other scum that foment and start wars, but how could any war happen if the soldiers did not show up? How could politicians gain support for their wars if the people refused to allow it? How could those same politicians who continue to promote and prosecute war stay in office if no one voted for them, or better yet, did not vote at all. As I have always said, if no one voted, then no one would be elected.

It seems so simple, and in theory it certainly is, because at any time, all U.S. wars and occupations could be ended immediately if the people simply stopped supporting these evil acts. If the soldiers refused to fight and kill others on orders, no war could go forward, and the military industrial complex would crumble into bankruptcy. What a wonderful world that would be.

But in most circles, it is blasphemy to condemn or even ignore the soldier or veteran in this country today. In fact, it is considered blasphemy in most places to not openly show respect and support for any active or inactive person in the military. If ten thousand people, or many more, are gathered together at a sporting event, and are told to stand with their hat off and their hand over their hearts for a national anthem that is nothing but a salute to the state and its killers, it is likely that all will immediately do as instructed, and without question. Even if a few do not feel right in that false worship, they generally will stand at attention anyway for fear of being exposed as a non-believer. It is certainly a pathetic display of a serf-like society steeped in a brainwashed and blind worship of the god that is the state.

But never fear because God is on our side! Apparently he is not on the side of any others on earth, including all those innocent children being slaughtered by the U.S. empire, unless the country they happened to be born in is now aligned with America. Germany under Hitler was once the murderer of millions, and according to U.S. doctrine, God was not on their side. Now it is an ally of the U.S., so God, according to the political gospel,  has changed his mind, and is now also on their side. One is never to ask questions when God is on their side.

If God was really on our side, as Bob Dylan sang about so long ago, then all wars would end, and all the senseless killing would cease!

Forced Detention Of Any American With “Respiratory Illness” Now Legal

“Those who do not move do not notice their chains.” ~ Rosa Luxemburg

On April 4th, 2003, the Bush Administration put Executive Order 13295 into law. That order was supposedly signed in order to “protect” citizens due to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome or SARS. It allowed for “providing for the apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.” This executive order in effect allowed for the “legal” capture and quarantine of American citizens for any number of diseases as described in that order. What is now very telling is that Ebola was specifically noted in Bush’s order. That was over 11 years ago!

This past July, Obama signed into law an amendment to Bush’s Executive Order 13295, that changed one paragraph of that original order. That change redefined the parameters for forcible capture and detention and mandatory quarantine of citizens by government officials. Instead of just a long list of diseases noted in the original order, Subsection b was replaced by Obama’s executive order amendment dramatically broadening the scope of the government’s reach.  It now reads:

“(b)  Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.  This subsection does not apply to influenza.”

This new loose and broad interpretation, due to adding “syndromes” instead of syndrome, expands to almost infinity the “legal” reasons that the government can demand mass quarantine of individuals or groups of individual Americans. The change seems subtle, but it is not, and is a very dangerous use of language, and one that allows for the quarantine floodgates to be opened by government at will.

This was done specifically for the Ebola Virus, but has the added effect of granting future quarantine rights to the federal government that are almost unlimited. Anything deemed a health concern, with the exception of influenza, can now be subject to this all encompassing executive order, which means that any and all Americans can be forcibly detained and held captive on the say so of any government health official, including any police officer. The adverse implications of this totalitarian order are staggering to say the least.

This is power seeking at its worst, and none should submit to this dictatorial order that allows well people, or anyone with a sniffle, to be treated as slaves, and effectively caged at the whim of the federal government or any of its agencies, including the abhorrent Center for Disease Control (CDC).

This is just one more step, albeit a big one, in the state’s efforts to fully control the masses of sheep in the U.S. The same U.S. government that now claims the right to capture and detain any American for virtually any sign of sickness, whether evident or not, is the government that created and patented a deadly strain of the Human Ebola Virus years ago.

What is really going on behind the scenes of the so-called surprise outbreak of Ebola? Where and how was it actually introduced? Who stands to gain power or benefit monetarily from an Ebola outbreak in this country? Why is this virus being used as the new fear mongering tool of government and the mainstream press? And why all of a sudden has the threat of yet another pandemic consumed this country? The answers to all these questions and more should be demanded by us all because this could be a way for the government to affect Martial Law without actually openly declaring it!

What If The Most Evil Government On Earth Purposely Planned And Created Ebola?

I must admit that my first thought about every catastrophe, with the exception of natural disasters, is that the government is either responsible entirely, or complicit in such a manner that these catastrophes could not have occurred without the hand of government. I have rarely been proven wrong. Cynical, you bet, but cynical due to a vast amount of research and fact that points to this conclusion.

This possible pandemic called Ebola is no different. Since the Ebola scare began, which was very recently, I wondered why things were being done in the manner they were being done. I was never surprised by the government’s reaction to this new threat, but that reaction raised many questions, even initially.

The progression of events was confusing to say the least, but given the past history of this government, nothing was unexpected. Patients who positively had been diagnosed with Ebola were allowed to come into the U.S. to be treated in local hospitals. Why? People traveling from western Africa where this deadly virus supposedly was spawned were not stopped from entering this country. The Ebola infected gentleman who came directly to the U.S. from Liberia without any scrutiny was allowed after examination to wander among the public, thereby possibly spreading the disease. He just died this morning, but no explanation has been given for the lax security, or what appears to be a purposeful effort to cause panic.

According to the mainstream news, the Ebola virus only surfaced in March of this year, but as is normally the case, that assessment is an outright lie. Yesterday, I read the patent information for the Ebola virus that is held by the United States federal government. Yes, the U.S. government created years ago, and then patented a gene for the Ebola virus, a virus that was actually discovered decades ago. The Human Ebola Virus patent tells its own story, at least for those willing to take their heads out of the proverbial sand.

The brilliant Butler Shaffer at Lew Rockwell made a valid case against the federal government and its history with the Ebola virus, and outlined some of the reasons for this falsely advertised new virus.

“For those who reflexively chant “conspiracy theorist!, conspiracy theorist!” whenever their well-conditioned ignorance is exposed to questioning, go to google and type in “patent for ebola virus” and see what appears. If one can survive the shock of seeing behind the Wizard’s screen, the question should then be asked: “why would the federal government spend so much time and money creating, and then patenting, a gene for the ebola virus?” What productive ends would be served by such efforts? The answer might be found in the following multiple choice options: [1] to create another “threat” that could be used to “protect” people; [b] to create another excuse for sending the military to other parts of the world [e.g., Africa] where the virus – and oil? – might be found; [c] to provide a reason for the government providing billions of dollars to Big-Pharma for research; [d] to justify more restrictions on both domestic and foreign travel; [e] to justify the creation of regional “quarantine” centers where “suspected” infected persons might be isolated; [f] all of the above.”

9:56 am on October 8, 2014 by Butler Shaffer

These statements and questions are not only prescient in part, but based on solid evidence. This should alarm everyone in America, and this obvious false flag attempt by this heinous government should be exposed for what it truly is, a planned and covertly orchestrated attempt to achieve an agenda meant to control the U.S. population, to support more war, to steal more natural resources of other countries, and to provide monstrous profits to those corporations who stand to benefit from this depraved government coup!

The Human Ebola Virus did not suddenly appear this past March, it was discovered long ago, and the patent sought by the U.S. government for an Ebola strain began over seven years ago. This deadly virus was most likely engineered for use as a U.S. biological weapon, among other things, and is now being used so the federal government can gain control over us all. The implications of this are staggering, but just how far will this government go in its effort to achieve total dominance over the population? How many will have to die or be put in isolation before the rest of the masses acquiesce to total state control? How long will it be until there are extensive quarantines affected by this police state and widespread Martial Law?
