Reassessing The "Special Relationship"

I urge you to watch and listen to the video embedded in this essay:


If after doing so you are still an unconditional supporter of Israel, there is something wrong with you.

By the way, Ms. Weir answers (at least in part) my question whether SCOTUS is an Israeli sock puppet:


Apparently Justices Brandeis and Frankfurter were just that. And if they put their "Zionist" oath above their US Constitutional oath, one has to ask what the US gets out of this "special relationship" other than getting bent over a barrel and screwed by Israel every time they please.

I also urge you to watch and listen to Ray McGovern's talk at the same conference:


Pay special attention to what he says about the murder of Rachael Corrie.

If after doing so you are still an unconditional supporter of Israel, there is something seriously wrong with you.

And what McGovern says about Fallujah near the end of the video is particularly interesting. Israel murders beget blowback which begets a shameful massacre.

Still Attacking Wedding Parties

You may be aware that the US military, especially the drone forces, have been attacking wedding parties. Here's one example:


And now here's an example of the same mentality (if you can call it that) at work here in the US:


There is something horribly wrong with the US and the police who are supposed to be protecting us. Day after day, there are more and more reports of police going berserk and needlessly injuring or killing people. In this instance, twelve people were attacked by police because one of them was carrying an open container of booze.


I'm not at all worried about guns owned by citizens, but I'm really starting to get concerned about the guns and other weapons being used by police. They can kill you and then say they were "just following proper police procedure".

This has to stop.

The Murder of Jesus Was An Act of Censorship

Here is an interesting perspective on the murder by crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth:


The US government and corporations like Google now are in the role played by the Sanhedrin, Pilate, and Rome.

And we Christians are in the role played by Jesus.

Hillary This and Hillary That

Here's another puff piece in The New York Times which constitutes free political advertising for Hillary Rodham:


She got 4+ years of free travel for campaign purposes while occupying (without any meaningful outcome) the office of SOS, and now she's getting constant free political advertising from the MSM.

So much for that "vast right wing conspiracy" bullshit. It looks to me more like a "vast left wing conspiracy".

Actually she's a craven whore for big money, and the left/right wing nonsense is just opium for the masses.

Sooner or later, our wealth will be taxed directly

You should read this report on the coming wealth tax:


The simple way out: repeal the 16th Amendment to the US Constitution. Then direct taxes would have to be equal, just as the Founders planned [see Article I, Section 9, Part 4:  No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken.] Doing so would quash the ObamaDon'tCare tax too.

However, the bastards at the top would find a way around that somehow; so we're screwed.

I will bet you a coke and nuts that Hillary Rodham will push through this wealth tax if and when she gets elected, which gives us yet another reason not to vote for her.

Abandoning Our Heroes Again

Here is an excellent report about how the US Navy has abandoned the personnel who were sickened by the nuclear accident at Fukushima, Japan:


They are not alone:

As often as not our government officials callously toss those heroes aside. The list is long and dates from the Bonus Army of jobless World War I veterans attacked in 1932 by the Washington, DC, police [and the US Army] for demanding compensation for wartime service, to the Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who suffered neglect and shoddy conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as recently as 2007. There are plenty of stops in between: The Vietnam vets never properly compensated for exposure to Agent Orange; Gulf War veterans who waited 17 years for Congress to acknowledge the reality of Gulf War Syndrome; and the 9/11 responders who waited eight years for whatever the budget cutters in Washington were willing, in their generosity, to dispense.

What the Navy did during and after the Fukushima accident was criminally negligent, and the people who made these decisions should be held accountable.

I'm personally sick of watching how Hollywood portrays the Navy and NCIS to be so wonderful, when the reality is quite different.

The Ruling Class Has Stolen The American Dream

America's middle class and poor class are now less well off than their counterparts in other countries:


We fell from our lofty perch because the 1% of the 1% of the 1% engineered our fall for their benefit. They have turned us into worthless objects in our own country, and so far we have done little or nothing to resist their theft of the American dream.

Why is that?
