Herr Mueller: by what name should we address you?

When the head of the secret police took charge, the people of the fair land looked the other way. A veteran of war in the service of his country, he was well trained for the task that he was assigned. Police work came natural, and his talents were well suited to collecting information about members of groups that were enemies of the State. When he was put in charge of the secret police he involved himself in the tracking down of potential opponents to the Fatherland. His methods became infamous. His orders were followed with total obedience. And the carnage that ensued, will never be forgotten! Or has it?

Raising the Debt Ceiling Avoids the Spending Addiction

The latest example of political hyperbole is that the U.S. Treasury is ready to default on its debt. An actual examination of the underlying facts is that the relative purchasing value of the currency has long ago swindled debt holder in U.S. Bonds of their promised returns. A default defined under this definition is part of the equation. Repudiation of the entire debt obligation is the real fear. Contrary to all the public scare tactics that the financial world will stop turning, the Federal Treasury has ample revenue to pay the interests on bonds and notes that come due. The essential issue is whether the new bond lenders are willing to roll over the debt that is coming due and keep the shell game going.

Public Propaganda Pundits

Lord Haw-Haw is alive and well.  He takes to the broadcast microphone everyday.  You know his name.  Actually there are many talk show Nazis that preach their doctrine of the ‘State Makes Right’.  But before you think that nothing has changed from when – Talk Radio has Mellowed – was written, you probably have not been listening to the AM air waves lately.  Talk Radio has become worse.  The Goebbels’ school of broadcast propaganda has graduated to a new level of insufferable anti-intellectualism.  The plastic flag has replaced reason and the evil Islamic fascists have become worse then the blood sucking Jew.  America resembles the bastion of a goosestep global blitzkrieg ready to pounce on any foe that opposes the Reich of the Fuhrer.

Dissecting U.S. Elections – the People vs. the Pols

rinoselection

The establishment has an entrenched interest in convincing the public that their vote in elections actually decides who is selected for public office. That same power elite runs and controls both Republican and Democratic political parties. Only a neophyte or a delusional idealist believes that the voting cycle reflects the will of the people. When reform candidates engage in the primary process, hoping to win the nomination from either of the two major parties, they face the stark reality that playing ball with the money bundlers means obeying the directives of masters of the universe. These overlords own politicians, especially those who continue in office by winning predetermined elections.

Woman of the Year, or is it?

hillbong

The game of presidential politics is often described as musical chairs.  Actually it is more like “Pop Goes the Weasel”.  Since national elections have proved to be irrelevant, tweedledum and tweedledee charades, what’s the point in getting worked up over the next cycle?  Well adjusted minds know that the next presidency will just be another administration that wastes the country.  Another ‘Croissant Kerry’ run would drive the electorate to riot.  A McCain march will never get fundamental troops to get in line.  What will the parties on both sides of the same coin do?  When in doubt call in the consultants and pollsters . . .

To Conspire or Not to Conspire, – That is the Question?

conspiracy

Recognizing that the great bard himself asked this timeless question in another form, why do so many avoid it, today? When Hamlet spoke the famous soliloquy “To be, or not to be, that is the question . . .”, he was contemplating suicide. Modern day Shakespeare’s could update the doubt of personal existence to encompass all of society. Why do the aggregate of masses deny confronting the record of power politics, that shapes and determines the future of our collective reality?

Media Coverage of Identity Politics

Cartoon-Puppet-Media-600

By any traditional standards of accomplishment, Barack Obama has failed miserably. This assessment is not based upon any particular ideology or partisan politics, just on straight pragmatic results. Furthermore, if you watch or read any of the accounts from the establishment media you would think that the black messiah would shuffle into a second term on the strength of his vocal talent. Singing sweet melodies appeals to those lacking in intellectual skills to assess and judge reality from rhetoric. What is striking about the tenor of the political debate is that the face of the country now wears a socialist mask that the masses love and demands even greater expansion.

George W. Bush “Born Again” Foreign Policy

israelchina

Leave it up to God to judge Dubya’s soul, but for the rest of us mere mortals assessing his politics is not just sport, it is essential survival protection.  The loony left is taking delight in his recent troubles.  True to human nature, the rat pack has suspect motives, even when outrage is the fitting response.  As usual, the bleeding heart utopians fail to understand the game that is playing itself out.  Their idea of a villain is that bad old conservative President.  Their kind of hero is that lip biting, “I feel your pain” philanderer.  A womanizer is the next best thing to having a woman President.  Well, here we go again!  Wrong on all counts.

John O. Brennan: CIA Drone Director

JohnBrennan

Well, Barak Obama got his wish on the second try. With the confirmation of John Owen Brennan by the Senate, the CIA has a new director from their own ranks. “Brennan’s 25 years with the CIA included work as a Near East and South Asia analyst, as station chief in Saudi Arabia, and as director of the National Counterterrorism Center.” He proudly attests, “I’m neither Republican nor Democrat. I’ve worked for the past five administrations.” Imagine a non-partisan spook as D/CIA. If this development is intended to restore confidence in the agency, just what kind of organization will emerge from a careerist covert agent at the helm?

Groupthink in Service of Government

governmentgroupthink

If the human race survives into the future, the history of the current age will be entitled – A Love Affair with Authority. As the 21st century unfolds, the existential struggle between group worship of government and an inherent autonomy revolt against a popular culture of state obedience seems to forecast doom for civilization. By any measurable standard of success, the prospects of rescuing a society based upon human dignity and natural law is vanishing in a technocratic system of coerced compliance and punitive punishment. The limits of individual behavior are severely restricted to the requirements of the State and the willful confines of self-induced conformity.
