you may have heard that the FBI has classified so-called conspiracy theorists as domestic extremists who are one 9/11 blog away from going on a shooting spree. after a trio of mass shootings, it's clear why the document was leaked when it was. the FBI wants you to forget that they are smearing the beliefs of two thirds of the American population as "conspiracy theories," force ridiculously implausible "coincidence theories" down your throat, & conceal the fact that they are seeking greater powers of intrusion into social media & encrypted communications using the rationale that MOST Americans are dangerous - even as they admit in their own leaked document that one of the reasons these "theories" are spreading so extensively is that powerful interests are repeatedly caught doing illegal things in secret!
the Five Eyes just finished throwing a tantrum over the fact that tech companies aren't coughing up the secrets of their encryption yet - this is a concerted effort to force them to crack the code. after all, who knows what we're plotting when 'they' aren't looking? _we_ certainly don't.

Helen of desTroy and Ryan the Last American Vagabond analyze the ideological crime scene that is (was?) Grand Theft American Dream - what happened here, & can the pieces be put back together again? the fallout from neoliberalism is painfully obvious for anyone who's ever driven through a mid-size American city, and cannot be shut out no matter how many fireworks we set off or how much "woke" self-flagellation we engage in. at a certain point we can no longer blame propaganda for pulling the wool over our eyes - when you Want To Believe, any altar will do, even the flimsiest CNN Potemkin Village.

When members of Congress swear their oaths of office, they pledge to uphold the Constitution. While it's easy to get confused - they spend most of their subsequent work hours dialing for dollars & virtue-signaling - passing laws that don't violate the constitution is actually their job. When they do violate the constitution, they're committing treason, which i've heard comes with some pretty nasty penalties, but i wouldn't know anything about those. i'm just an innocent American citizen speaking up for my right to boycott criminal governments (aside from my own, which unfortunately it's impossible to boycott while living in, or i would...). just think, 3/4 of the Senate has openly admitted to treason through their votes - i certainly wouldn't want to be in their shoes should someone decide to enforce the penalties for such things. not that there's any danger of that happening.
i realize expecting the government to do the right thing is like expecting unicorns to erupt from one's posterior every time one passes gas, but the least they could do is not explicitly betray their oath of office. right?

Americans are setting off more fireworks than ever on the Fourth of July, flexing their patriotism even as the Social Justice memory hole engulfs ever-larger swaths of US history. What started with confederate flags & Robert E Lee statues has now taken the 13-star Betsy Ross flag and even Thomas Jefferson, without whom we wouldn't have the Declaration of Independence - and, the media asks, would that be such a bad thing?
No wonder people are setting off fireworks. They don't buy this garbage, but nor do they support the right-wing "USA! USA!" jingoism that has passed for "patriotism" for decades. Their real feelings lie somewhere between the two, probably contain conflicting emotions, & thus must be drowned out by loud noises & explosions at all times, lest they be forced to engage in that most hideously unAmerican of pastimes, meditative introspection.

from the "1984 was not an instruction manual" department...

If you want to control a person's thoughts, control the words they use. By bending the meaning of key terms, the ruling class is able to create a reality in which dissidents are forced to verbally tie themselves in knots in order to express what were once quite simple, straightforward and powerful ideas. The loss of precision is often fatal, turning messages that once packed a punch into weak statements larded with necessary qualifiers. Iconic concepts like "freedom" are watered down through years of cynical PR initiatives such that, as in Orwell's 1984, the word becomes so warped as to be equated with "slavery."
Don't believe me? While i was uploading this video, Trump declared _another_ "emergency"...

NATO was founded 70 years ago to "contain" communism as embodied in the Soviet Union. This means it has lived nearly 30 years past its expiration date. Without an enemy to keep it in check, NATO has metastasized in a way that would turn any cancerous tumor green with envy, growing with leaps and bounds even as its raison d'être faded into memory. It now contains more than twice as many countries as it did when formed, some of which abut Russia's borders, and seems to exist for the sole purpose of provoking Russia - and extorting tribute payments from its component countries, with a hint that something nasty could befall them should they fail to cough up 2% of GDP. Anyone who smirks at this suggestion need only research Operation Gladio - the real mission NATO covered for, which continues to this day. Any countries that got out of line - leaning a little too far to the left, say, or (in more recent years) calling out the war crimes of one particular non-NATO US ally - might suddenly find themselves victim of a terror attack (spoiler alert: there's no "might" here - it never fails). "That's a nice country you got dere - would be a shame if anything happened to it..."

update: a Sandy Hook father has reportedly killed himself while i was trying to upload this video. last week, he was in Florida visiting families of the Parkland kids. So either you believe suicide is actually a pathogen or viral contagion of some kind, transmittable via bodily fluids, or you admit there is something sinister taking place here.

Last summer, 28 survivors of the Parkland high school shooting visited survivors of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake in New Zealand, ostensibly to bond over their shared experience of tragedy and mass death and to gain converts to their cause of gun control. New Zealand, a country where gun violence is essentially unheard-of, experienced its worst-ever mass shooting earlier this month. Now, two Parkland students have reportedly committed suicide by shooting themselves in the head.

to quote one of the most famous Parkland survivors, I Call BS.
There is no way that a 19-year-old girl who can barely handle being in a classroom due to PTSD from the shooting she survived picked up a gun and shot herself. Women - especially young women - don't use guns to commit suicide except in the rarest cases, and the suggestion that the survivor of a mass shooting had guns at home just waiting to be used in her suicide is ludicrous. We don't know the identity of the other "suicide," but he has allegedly also shot himself in the head in an act which flies in the face of logic, common sense, and human nature.

US to China: how dare you spy on our citizens? That's our job!
When you've devoted decades & billions of dollars to crafting the perfect police/surveillance state, only to have some Wanzhou-come-lately show up & out-spy you, clearly you're going to be a bit peeved. But let's not start World War 3 over it, shall we? After all, Mossad has been out-spying US & China for decades.

So-called "color revolutions" like those of the Arab Spring seem to unfold in such a formulaic manner it almost seems their participants are reading from the same script. Spoiler alert: they are! It's called "From Dictatorship to Democracy," and it was written by Gene Sharp of the Albert Einstein Institute (you can read it here https://www.aeinstein.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/FDTD.pdf).
The formula for a nonviolent regime change - replacing that pesky elected leader or anti-US strongman with a compliant puppet of the western ruling elite - is relatively simple, and focuses on uniting disparate dissatisfied groups into a unified protest force, then turning that force against the leader, forcing him into an untenable position (on which massive foreign media attention then focuses). Police crackdowns are triggered by rooftop snipers shooting at authorities or into the midst of nonviolent demonstrations. Professional victims appear as if from nowhere with tales of unspeakable atrocities committed by the regime. And all this action is tagged with a color or symbol to mark it as part and parcel of an easily-to-understand "revolution" - brought to you by the CIA, the NED, USAID, & various other front groups that specialize in taking down governments.

Following a few dozen cases of measles in the northwest, US lawmakers are preparing to introduce federal legislation to close the philosophical and/or religious loopholes that currently allow parents in many states to exempt their children from the full CDC vaccination schedule, while YouTube and Facebook have declared they will unilaterally censor "anti-vaccination" content. Why? If these people who question the wisdom and safety of universal vaccination are loony conspiracy theorists, surely all the forces of scientific progress need to do is address their arguments, point by point, debunking them, convincing doubters, and sending the converted "anti-vaxxers" to their doctor in shame.
Yet this does not occur. Instead, vaccine skeptics are demonized as "anti-vaxxers," and the WHO declares them a threat to world health on the same level as ebola. How is this possible? Introducing legislation to close the loopholes is a tacit admission on the part of Big Pharma and the CDC that they do not have the answers to vaccine skeptics' questions. Concerned parents are reframed as unthinking monsters - worse - a threat to Society Itself - just because they question a few elements of a commonly accepted "truth."
This is the same treatment inflicted on so-called "holocaust deniers" - scholars of history who in their research have found certain "facts" about the World War II internment of Jews do not add up. Instead of addressing their arguments, however, orthodox historians have chosen to smear them with a broad brush, accusing them of "denying" the historical fact of the entire event - when not a single one (aside from the neo-Nazis whose image is used as shorthand for any and all questioners) denies the Nazis rounded up Jews and put them in camps, where many died. The reality of the situation is horrific enough, but there is another layer of "facts" that fail to bear up to the most cursory scrutiny, and it is these that are called into question by people like David Irving or Germar Rudolf - respected scholars in their fields who will never work in American or European academia again, thanks to the guardians of the narrative's utterly un-scholarly reaction to questioning. Rather than engage in open debate - as scholars tend to do on literally all other subjects - they categorically shut down inquiry with accusations of "holocaust denial" and even criminal charges in several European states. This can only be because they are aware they do not have the facts or evidence to support their theories. Legislation is capitulation.

Until 48 hours ago, Tulsi Gabbard was an extremely rare creature - a principled politician with a seemingly-intact spine operating within Congress. Alas, she blew that illusion right open on the ignominious set of the View, unable to stand up to the ignorant bullying of hate-blimp Megan McCain on her views on Syrian president Bashar al-Assad - a man she met with personally during her fact-finding trip to Syria in 2017.

(Silver lining - i was going to contribute to Tulsi's campaign - now i don't have to! but if anyone reading this has her ear, tell her to fire whatever moron is running her campaign - i'm reading it may be her sister? it seems her strategist left last month - & hire someone who is ideologically on the same page & also has a spine. otherwise you're gonna get creamed.)

All is not lost - she could theoretically bounce back by admitting she made a mistake or just, you know, not making another one along those lines. It's not as if she voted to get the US into a bunch of unconstitutional disgusting evil wars or anything. which brings us to our next topic...

Bernie Sanders is back, hoping we'll have forgotten how he threw us under the bus in 2016. As this video was processing, i learned he hired a Clinton-adjacent strategist to run his campaign, so we can safely put to rest any thoughts he might have changed either.

Ilhan Omar's "anti-Semitic" tweets criticizing the outsize role of the Israeli lobby in American politics were neither anti-Semitic nor remotely controversial, and the insane overreaction of both Democratic Party leadership and members of the Lobby proves her point better than she could have hoped to do alone. AIPAC and its ilk are lobbying groups - by definition, their purpose is to get money to congresscreatures in order to elicit the desired legislative behavior. It's as Pavlovian as it sounds. By attacking Omar, AIPAC and Israel's army of hasbara trolls (more than half the Twitter users attacking Omar, especially those claiming to be from her district, are obvious sock-puppet accounts, likely being run out of Tel Aviv) proved she was right. The arrogant, hubris-bloated Lobby sees no reason it should not continue operating with impunity - while Democratic leadership cravenly proved it would rather appease a foreign government that holds the purse strings than stick up for one of their own, even when that "one" is a Muslim woman of color, a winner of the intersectional identity politics sweepstakes.

Democrats have revealed what we knew all along - all this identity politics talk was just divide-and-conquer rhetoric, and what really matters is - as Omar said herself - the benjamins. Good luck getting people to vote for your morally-bankrupt asses in 2020.
Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is sabotaging an entire generation's attempt to reform the rotting husk of capitalism, poisoning the well for future activists and dashing the hopes of an entire generation with her sloppy, fake, spineless half-measures, abandoning her campaign platform before she was even sworn in, & allowing unseen forces to sand off what rough edges remain. And Rashida Tlaib is looking more like a sellout every day, content to screech-to-impeach but remaining silent where it matters. Somewhere in Congress, there is a room full of the spines that have been checked before lawmakers are allowed to enter the legislative chamber.

In which we question the seemingly nonsensical tendency of the Fake Left (Antifa & its allies) to attack moderate figures with broad appeal - Tucker Carlson being the latest victim, the only television presenter who has spoken out against endless neocon war and therefore a much-needed bastion of sanity in the rabies ward that is the mainstream media - it's obvious these people aren't interested in any genuine social progress. They never target Wall Street, or the military-industrial complex, or any of the real oppressive powers in America. Instead, they offer the disenfranchised a pressure release valve by diverting their anger and frustration toward "lesser evils" even while making the Left seem toxic to the politically-unaffiliated, killing two birds with one stone.
What would have happened to Tucker Carlson's wife if the "protesters" had gotten inside his house? Are we looking at French Revolution Part 2?

Drug addicts and criminals are the only class of people it's still considered morally acceptable - even laudable - to oppress in America. Certainly, criminals should experience consequences for their actions, but the way our society defines "crimes" means there is a horrific amount of collateral damage involved in the execution of 'justice.' Unfortunately, our need to believe that justice is being done leads us to shy away from examining the realities of the system, lest we see how unjust it actually is.
Diversion programs for addicts are an improvement over the 'throw away the key' policies of the past, but they're also ripe for abuse, as evidenced by the recent scandal in California that exposed the practice of 'body brokering' wherein rehabs trade patients for exorbitant 'finders fees' & huge insurance payouts for urine tests. These rehab facilities are enormously expensive and rarely offer scientifically-proven treatment, instead throwing the patient to the 12-step wolves and blaming them when they don't get better through this modern-day faith healing. If this was being done to anyone other than drug addicts, Americans would be up in arms. but who cares about a bunch of junkies, amirite? (as overdoses surpass all other accidental causes of death in this country - we all know at least one, whether we choose to admit it or not)

The so-called #Resistance's unconditional love for the FBI is at best Stockholm Syndrome and at worst suicidal. The FBI has dedicated itself since the 1960s to destroying leftist movements, and when Robert Mueller led the agency under George W. Bush (and later Obama) he continued this tradition, bringing COINTELPRO into the modern age with the help of the PATRIOT Act. Mueller's crimes are legion, yet all seems to have been forgiven by liberals who see him as their St. George slaying the great orange dragon of Trump. The post-election protests to #protectMueller in the wake of Jeff Sessions' firing were a hideous joke that could only come from the Deep State - whether the FBI itself or the CIA or some contractor tasked with dreaming up Onion-level psyops. In a country that's supposedly the richest in the world yet where 2/3 of residents can't come up with $500 for an emergency expense, the idea that we should focus on "protecting Mueller" and his joke of a Russiagate investigation is astronomically stupid. Mueller's track record shows it is in fact liberals who need protection from Mueller, who (among a laundry-list of other misdeeds) had snipers positioned on Houston rooftops in order to take out Occupy protesters in case they got a little too rowdy. Yet the brainwashed fake-left has been led to embrace this sociopath in the hopes of getting rid of the president they're told is the second coming of Hitler crossbred with Satan and lightly sprinkled with Mussolini.

tl;dr - Mueller literally wants you dead, liberals. Why would you want to protect him? Trump is the symptom of a problem that has been taking shape in American politics for a very long time. Mueller represents the forces driving that problem, even more than Trump does.

The fascist death cult backing the American military-industrial-surveillance complex has been busy. In order to defuse the opposition, they have had to commit all sorts of crimes - not just against humanity, but against the English language. "Antisemitism" no longer means hatred of Jews - it has been redefined, increasingly in the legal sense, to include criticism of Israel. The goal is to put anti-war activists on the defensive - to force us to spend so much time defending ourselves against allegations of antisemitism that we never get around to actually protesting all the ziofascist wars the US has been roped into.

The facts remain: these wars in Syria, in Yemen, in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, all the undeclared conflicts in Africa, none of these benefit the US strategically. Yet the US continues to volunteer its services as Israel's eager pitbull, continues to shovel billions of dollars in aid to a government that violates international law on a daily basis, continues to allow this government to meddle in our political affairs, even while American citizens struggle to put food on their tables and roofs over their heads.

Criticize this state of affairs and you are labeled antisemitic.
This is adding insult to injury. Ziofascists and their allies have ripped us off; contributed to our intellectual, moral, and physical decline; propagandized us to the brink of incoherence; and rendered our country an international pariah - now they want to smear us as bigots as well? This is unacceptable. We will not be silenced.

We stand for peace and justice. This is not a controversial stance, but the forces of greed, hypocrisy and violence have made it so - they are too cowardly to debate us in an open forum and must resort to deception and subterfuge. Ziofascism is a repugnant ideology, rendered even more so when it uses ordinary Jews as an ideological human shield. If we ever want to achieve world peace, we must address the zionist elephant in the room.

Nikki Haley recently revealed she is clairvoyant. What a cool skill for a diplomat to have! Divining with absolute certainty that if chemical weapons are used in the Syrian province of Idlib, it will be President Bashar al-Assad who was responsible, Haley makes it painfully clear that when Trump finally grows a pair and fires her belligerent ass, she has a future with Miss Cleo on the Psychic Friends Network.

Facebook is taking on the duties of the infamous East German Stasi, the secret police that had an informer on every block. Not content with merely hiring tens of thousands of new fact-checkers to patrol users' content, Facebook has incentivized users to report each other for sharing "fake news," knowing full well that the tool would become a means for the grinding of axes and the downranking of articles with which one disagrees. It's like Zuckerburp saw an episode of Black Mirror & thought "ok, i like it, but not dystopian enough." If we can't resist this gallop toward totalitarianism, we really can't call ourselves a "resistance."
(not that we'd do that anyway, now that the word has been coopted by proto-fascists who'd rather hammer away at Trump than engage with the real issues that created Trump)
Everyone knows at this point that FB is a totalitarian nightmare, yet we're all still on it. Mass migration to another platform must come before the elections. Get your friends to migrate with you - it's no fun starting over on a new social network without your friends, which is one of the reasons we're all still feeding Schmuckerberg our data. So far i like minds.com for the destination, but i'm open to suggestion. What platforms do you use that don't suck? Preference given for a.free b.decentralized c.encrypted - but we need to GTFO FB now. They're partnering with financial institutions and healthcare providers now. that means access to your bank balance and all your STD tests. i don't need to point out how scary that is. or do i?

Wicked Witch of the UN Nikki Haley claims that if anyone uses chemical weapons in the coming battle to retake Idlib, she knows it will have been Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. Where her newfound psychic abilities came from she has not explained, but rumor has it she was rejected from the Psychic Friends Network for advising too many callers to bomb Damascus &/or dedicate their lives to the Zio-Fascist Cause. Meanwhile, Assad just wants to run his country without interference from the US, the belligerently drunk fratboy of geopolitics, holding nations hostage with its ballistic incontinence as it looks for a spot of land to plop down a military base like a clutch of parasite eggs.

Neoliberalism represents the nadir of global capitalism - the bottom of the barrel for all but the .01%. But communism doesn't sound so great either- certainly not in a large, diverse nation with so many conflicting interests. The problem with our system now is not necessarily capitalism itself but in how it has been applied as the Solution to Everything. Capitalism is great for business, for building a framework to support technological innovation, for building up a nation's industrial base...but not so great as the foundation of a culture. After all, who would you rather spend a night with, a banker or a philosopher? But who's collecting fat checks and who's barely scraping by? Our culture is doomed unless we put things in perspective. Capitalism is a dead end without a rich cultural tradition that values artists, imagination, innovation of all stripes.
Neoliberalism makes a virtue out of greed because it is morally empty - not only are your fellow humans mere means to an end, but the value of everything is determined by what you can get someone else to pay for it. This is a race to the bottom. We have lost sight of the great thinkers of the Enlightenment - the philosophers who brought us out of the dark ages and who were at that time highly respected for their role in framing a new kind of society. Now, a student announcing he'd like to major in philosophy at university is laughed out of the room. Again, who would you rather have a drink with - John Stuart Mill or J.P. Morgan?
Imagine if our politicians were philosophers - thinkers, problem solvers, people who dedicated their time to finding solutions to the complex issues facing modern humanity - instead of, well, politicians - greedy, venal, morally bankrupt, looking out for #1?
Capitalism has its place - in the boardroom, in the stock exchange, in the shopping mall. But it's no foundation for a functional society.

We have reached Peak Outrage. Americans are so alienated they are desperate to find strong feelings anywhere, even in taking offense on behalf of some imaginary third party. Witness the packs of pod people cheering for the deplatforming of Infowars because - they think - of Alex Jones' comments about the Sandy Hook school shooting - comments they have never heard, on a show they've never watched, about an event they stopped caring about years ago. If this is the best we can do as a species, it is time to throw in the towel.

Farewell to John McCain: traitor, warmonger, fraud, sanctimonious scumbag. Not a war hero, not a "maverick," merely a bloodthirsty lackey of the zionist ruling class. The women and children of Syria and Iran will sleep better at night knowing he is six feet under.

Has capitalism lifted the world out of poverty, or did it just pull its usual scam of stepping in at the last minute and taking credit for the work of someone/something else? Fun fact: those who protest that America's economy is a disaster because it's not REAL capitalism, that a REAL free market would be positively utopian! are no different than those who whine that the excesses of Stalinism and Maoism can't be blamed on communism because those regimes weren't REAL communism. These economic theories are great in theory, but as soon as humans get involved, the notion of a "perfect" free market flies out the window to land on the same trash-heap of history as "perfect" communism, both ideas unworkable by all but the most "perfect" human beings.
The answer, as usual, is something in between - a hybrid with elements of both socialism and capitalism - but don't tell that to the rabid Randian ideologues running the US economy into the ground. As neoliberal austerity dines on the last vestiges of our humanity, Americans have lost the ability to understand anything more nuanced than brute force.

Why are liberals cheering on Brennan, Comey, Mueller and other Deep State hacks? Haven't the FBI and CIA devoted massive amounts of manpower to infiltrating and destroying the organized Left through COINTELPRO and CHAOS among other operations? Have they all gone insane?
Hypocrisy and memory loss are two of the primary symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), a contagious hysteria afflicting liberals of the trendy/shallow persuasion who wear their ideology as a fashion accessory but have never actually read a book (or even a long web article) on the political views they claim to hold. Because they've adopted their ideals as a package, they don't have the capacity for nuanced argument and instantly revert to shouting and attempts to deplatform. TDS is making rational debate extinct and giving real liberals (like us!) a bad name.
