Trumped is the New F*cked ☀ Tell "the Don": "Go Trump Yerself"

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 23:13:00 +0000

 Trumped is the New F*cked    Let's try this new Trump-bot: "ISIS really needs to take Donald Trump out. If ever there were an ugly American ISIS needs to take out, it's Donald Trump." Jest kidding, you know sarcasm... out to a ballgame, please. "Trumped" is destined for curse-word infamy, right up there with "fucked", "hosed", "fubar" and "impaled on a micropenis."  One really bright prospect of the "Trumpocalypse": now one can categorize and identify all the loose-screw, a$$holes and supremacist nutbags in the local neighborhood, the media, and Washington DC. Place a big red "T" on their a$$es, for future reference. These are the folks who would round you up and put you in a concentration camp, break all the windows on command, all the while claiming how "great" their version of "security" is...  History may not repeat itself exactly, but it does crawl up into a mobster Tower, sends other people's kids to war and then smacks you in the head with a sack of gold coins. "Go Trump yerself"... "go get Trumped" ... "Trump-off". Such rich additions to our English vernacular! Don't even get us started on the Spanish... jajaja.  sopoʇ ɐ sǝɥɔoN sɐuǝnq ❤ ☀Donald Trump’s Destruction Isn’t Funny AnymoreIf you can live with this bloodthirsty hate, you have no right to call yourself a patriotBy Jon Reinish • 08/11/16 We are here.We have arrived here. Donald Trump last week called for Russia to hack Hillary Clinton and commit rogue state espionage against a political leader. That was treasonous in my mind. That was beyond all reason. America reeled. He has thrown such insanity at us repeatedly that it’s become normalized.Mexicans are rapists. Muslim Americans and refugees alike are terror threats. Women should be punished by law for seeking to end a pregnancy. Build the wall. Round up Latino American families in the night like rabid dogs.This was all most foul. This week it got worse. On Tuesday, August 9, Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s nominee to be leader of the free world, outwardly promoted “Second Amendment” solutions against Hillary Clinton: her body, her campaign, potential judicial nominees.There is no gray area. This is exhorting gun violence. This is pushing his followers to take up arms and inflict harm. Grievous harm. Civil war.Say no. If you are sane, if you stand with life, if you care about this nation, our character and our survival, this is when you get off the sidelines and say no. This is the line in the sand. Our psychological Maginot Line has been breached.There is no middle ground here. This is where you look into the abyss, into the Day of the Locust, into this Helter Skelter, into this proposed mayhem and make a choice and say no.Today’s comments are not banter. They are not theories. This is real. There is no turning back. He is saying there will be blood. I’m horrified.No longer can any worthwhile American say, “But the candidates are the same.” No. It’s not a lesser of two evils. There is one evil. And it is Trump. There is no cover. You can no longer and say, “He’s a business guy.” Or, “I’m bothered by Hillary’s emails.” Or, “They’re all the same.” Or, “He doesn’t mean it.” Or, “He’s an entertainer.”He means it. He made that crystal clear today. He is calling for internecine war. He is calling for all-out Armageddon. He is calling for battle—beyond this election. This cannot be ignored.I don’t want to hear that this is a breath of fresh air, he’s not politically correct, or let’s let Donald be Donald. Donald is antithetical to our character. He’s dangerous to our safety. We must stop Donald being Donald at all costs.It’s black and white. It’s alpha omega. It’s a stark choice.If you vote for Trump, you validate this. There is no grey area. It’s now all or nothing. Make no mistake. If you support Donald Trump, you condone this. You are okay with what he says and what he stands for. You agree with him. You agree that Latin Americans should be rounded [...]

America Chews on Conspiracy Bits, As CIA Wars Rage On Around the World

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 20:35:00 +0000

America"Celebrates" Murder of a US President, While "Conspiracy Theories" Consistently Poo-pooed by Mainstream Media   While the world stands back in horror and wonder at our American ability to thrive in a self-fulfilling fever of war & terror, our media & leadership seems to have conditioned us to accept the "celebration" of mind-boggling crimes, such as the murder of a beloved President, the bombing of NYC & demolition of skyscrapers, while proclaiming how "great & enduring" our society is.Notice how nearly every broadcast and article on this 50 year memorial of JFK's murder call in to question the very existence of "conspiracy theories" while avoiding the actual evidence itself:http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2013/1118/50-years-after-JFK-conspiracy-theories-of-all-sorts-thrive-in-America-video allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/kQ60igvIZfY" width="420">We've noticed how nearly every broadcast an interview in the past two weeks begins & ends with the "single shooter conspiracy" which realistically, seems the most implausible of all. Oswald & Ruby both embroiled in CIA, mob, military, KGB, mix it all in to the insanity which has girpped the nation for 50 years now.The Warren Commission on inspection is a flawed and convenient band-aid on justice at best, almost certainly a cover-up of Orwellian proportions.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2510642/Bobby-Kennedy-immediately-suspected-CIA-brothers-death-majority-Americans-believe-conspiracy-theories.htmlThe real-world facts remain what has unfolded since JFK was murdered in the most public manner: The CIA has grown & thrived, with a Texan family called the Bushes having their name on the headquarters, having seized the Presidency themselves (twice), embroiled the nation in global wars both covert & extreme, under whom a massive terror network has arisen, the war machinery now acceptable as our primary culture.War, war, war, Strangelovian, Orwellian, whatever label you may put on it, war will always be the industrial killing of other human beings, in a value system which can be summed up as "by any means necessary." This is who we have been mind-warped, conditioned, terrorized into being, celebrating, proclaiming our rightness.Yet the festering wounds in the fabric remain unhealed, poisoning the bloodstream of the entire planet. We are incensed over NSA snooping on our computers, but accept the CIA puppeteering the government & economy. In fact, since "Covert Affairs" had it's series finale last night, the night before JFK's assassination, we can say we love our CIA "storytellers."http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/11/kennedy-assassination-conspiracy-oswald-cuba allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/6DLFmVGvm5g" width="560">The JFK conspiracy is just the surface "scab" on the vast SECRET government and corporatist war history which remains hidden beneath the surface of our "American spectacle."Perhaps the greatest "smoking gun" of the new millennium is the demolition of World Trade Center 7 (WTC7) on Sept 11, 2001. A 47-story super-structure which housed the CIA, which was NOT hit by any planes or bombs, yet collapsed in molten free-fall, with no explanation, or media coverage. In fact, notice today, the media will not even mention its existence.This is the "conspiracy" that refuses to be buried, or chopped up & shipped off the China with the rest of the evidence.http://rememberbuilding7.org/ allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/-r6xZyKlla0" width="560"> [...]



Killing Kennedy: Solving the Forensic Puzzle of USA, Amidst Love, War & Insanity

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 22:49:00 +0000

"Killing Kennedy" and "Parkland" memorialize the 50 year old assassination of a President of the United States, but fail to address the immense, festering conspiracy which still poisons the culture of the American war-spy machine. War, corruption, profiteering, destabilization, continue at accelerating insanity.The Warren Commission kept these autopsy photos secret, in fact it appears some of the autopsy materials were made to disappear, or were substituted. Not even Attorney General Robert Kennedy had access to them for years! Why? Sherlock & co. say, because one can clearly see the entry wound was in the throat, and massive exit wound from back top of skull. Which means Oswald didn't do it.FBI Agent with evidence states the obvious, JFK was shot in the throat, from the front.  allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/VSXQYvm57YM" width="560"> Sherlock and co. say:  Explore the Dealey Plaza Google Maps here: http://goo.gl/maps/XZYQwZoom in all the way and click "Street View" go to 454 Elm St, at the base of the steps of the Grassy Knoll. See the dude standing next to the storm culvert?

Cara Delevingne in WonderLand: Beautiful, Weird & Wild

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 17:55:00 +0000


Proem     
by Octavio Paz 
translated by Eliot Weinberger  


   At times poetry is the vertigo of bodies and the vertigo of speech and the vertigo of death;
   the walk with eyes closed along the edge of the cliff, and the verbena in submarine gardens;
   the laughter that sets on fire the rules and the holy commandments;
   the descent of parachuting words onto the sands of the page;
   the despair that boards a paper boat and crosses,
   for forty nights and forty days, the night-sorrow sea and the day-sorrow desert;
   the idolatry of the self and the desecration of the self and the dissipation of the self;
   the beheading of epithets, the burial of mirrors;    the recollection of pronouns freshly cut in the garden of 

Epicurus, and the garden of Netzahualcoyotl;
   the flute solo on the terrace of memory and the dance of flames in the cave of thought;
   the migrations of millions of verbs, wings and claws, seeds and hands;
   the nouns, bony and full of roots, planted on the waves of language;
   the love unseen and the love unheard and the love unsaid: the love in love.

Syllables seeds.

A Nation of Sheeple Can't Make You Bleed! =^.^=

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 20:15:00 +0000



"The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in and keep step and obey in silence the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of the good citizen not to be silent."
 -- Charles Eliot Norton

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
 -- Bertrand de Jouvenel




"It demands great spiritual resilience not to hate the hater whose foot is on your neck, and an even greater miracle of perception and charity not to teach your child to hate."
 --  James Arthur Baldwin



"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. . . Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem." 
 -- Howard Zinn, "Failure to Quit"




"I am done with great things and big things, great institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny invisible molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which if you give them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man's pride."
 -- William James



War & Women's Power: Principles of World Peace

Sat, 15 May 2010 03:20:00 +0000

Paulo Coelho’sDeclaration of Principles 1] All men are different. And should do everything possible to continue to be so.2] Each human being has been granted two courses of action: that of deed and that of contemplation. Both lead to the same place.3] Each human being has been granted two qualities: power and gift. Power drives man to meet his destiny, his gift obliges him to share with others that which is good in him. A man must know when to use his power, and when to use his gift.4] Each human being has been granted a virtue: the capacity to choose. For he who does not use this virtue, it becomes a curse – and others will always choose for him.5] Each human being has the right to two blessings, which are: the blessing to do right, and the blessing to err. In the latter case, there is always a path of learning leading to the right way.6] Each human being has his own sexual profile, and should exercise it without guilt – provided he does not oblige others to exercise it with him.7] Each human being has his own Personal Legend to be fulfilled, and this is the reason he is in the world. The Personal Legend is manifest in his enthusiasm for what he does.Single paragraph – the Personal Legend may be abandoned for a certain time, provided one does not forget it and returns as soon as possible.8] Each man has a feminine side, and each woman has a masculine side. It is necessary to use discipline with intuition, and to use intuition objectively.9] Each human being must know two languages: the language of society and the language of the omens. The first serves for communication with others. The second serves to interpret messages from God.10] Each human being has the right to seek out joy, joy being understood as something which makes one content – not necessarily that which makes others content.11] Each human being must keep alight within him the sacred flame of madness. And must behave like a normal person.12] The only faults considered grave are the following: not respecting the rights of one’s neighbor, letting oneself be paralyzed by fear, feeling guilty, thinking one does not deserve the good and bad which occurs in life, and being a coward.Paragraph 1 – we shall love our adversaries, but not make alliances with them. They are placed in our way to test our sword, and deserve the respect of our fight.Paragraph 2 – we shall choose our adversaries, not the other way around.12A] We hereby declare the end to the wall dividing the sacred from the profane: from now on, all is sacred.14] Everything which is done in the present, affects the future by consequence, and the past by redemption.15] Dispensations to the contrary are herewith revoked.Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland Beams Yoko Ono's Wishes into Outer SpaceFrom a Smoldering Edge of Your "SuperMax" Society:Nature Awakens War-Mad "Machine Monkeys" Too LateOnce Pristine Planet Overrun by Industrial ExterminationBravo Zulu Dandelion UnitChronoCorps Orbital SynchLab OMEGAhttp://CosmoCorps.orgLessons from the Last Half Century SOS from the midst of the mind-control Matrix commonly called "America."

Obamas to Get Busy in the White House: Obamalicious!

Fri, 21 Nov 2008 02:37:00 +0000

Presidential ParticularsPresident Obama Fun Facts11.November 2008, 13:05From Washington to Lincoln to Kennedy, the Presidents of the United States have not only been the most powerful men in the country, their personal lives have also endured endless scrutiny, becoming the stuff of national myth. Choosing to run for president is therefore akin to baring your soul to 300 million Americans. WELT ONLINE English News has some of the latest gossip on the next POTUS.Obama's life story is markedly different from all U.S. presidents before him, and the differences go far beyond his skin color. He is also the first president born outside the continental United States (he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii), and the first to have been a constitutional law professor by profession.But did you know his career ambition as a child? What his favorite food is? What his name means and where it comes from? What his nickname was in high school?The U.S. president inevitably serves as a role model for children in the United States and beyond. Hospitals across the country, as well as in Obama's father's Kenyan hometown, have already reported a dramatic uptick in the number of baby 'Baracks' born.Keep on reading for more fun facts about America's 44th President.Personal Life-Obama was born August 4, 1961.

U.S. vs. John Lennon: Truth & Healing to Stop the War

JOHN LENNON DOCUMENTARY TO SHAKE UP THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPEEXCLUSIVE: Yoko Ono on John Lennon and the FBIBy JONATHAN KARLJohn Lennon's perceived "threat" to the U.S. government is the highlight of a new film that documents his transformation from pop idol to political activist and offers a fresh look at this former Beatle's career."The U.S. vs. John Lennon" will be released later this month. Yoko Ono cooperated with the filmmakers, opening her archives of rarely seen footage of the couple's fight for peace."One thing that brought us together was the fact that both of us were rebels in so many ways," she said.And that's something he didn't always share with his bandmates, who were reluctant to join Lennon as he spoke out against the Vietnam War, said Ono."He is the only one who really wanted to do something about it when he was a Beatle," Ono explained.Star Watched by the FBILennon's rebelliousness may have come at a price. In the 1970s, Lennon was convinced that government agents were watching him. As it turns out, he was right.Almost 20 years after his death, the government released the FBI file on Lennon, which included nearly 300 pages of text. One document that went from the FBI to the CIA reports that Lennon planned to take part in a protest at the 1972 Republican National Convention.South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond seized on that, suggesting to President Nixon's attorney general that Lennon's visa be terminated.A few weeks later, Lennon was given 30 days to leave the country and was notified that his visa had been terminated because of an old drug arrest in England."I think that the world really loved the Beatles for being charming and sweet," Ono said. "But some people did resent the fact that they were no more the sweet, nice, charming boys."Ono and Lennon did not want to leave the United States, and a legal battle ensued.In 1976, after the end of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal, Lennon won.The judge in the case wrote that the British singer's battle to stay in the United States was a "testimony to his faith in the American dream."http://www.theusversusjohnlennon.com/site/trailer.htmlJohn Lennon's Anniversary to Become One of 'Worldwide Healing'John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono made a call to transform her former husband's anniversary into a day of worldwide healing, by apologizing to everyone who suffered from violence and war. Ono also thanked the people who have given her comfort through the years since Lennon was gunned down.In a full-page advertisement in yesterday's New York Times, Yoko Ono urges readers to mark the anniversary by apologizing to those who have suffered because of violence and war. "Every year, let's make December 8th the day to ask for forgiveness from those who suffered the insufferable," writes the musician's widow, who signs the letter with the name Yoko Ono Lennon.John Ono Lennon, MBE (born John Winston Lennon, October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980) had one son, Julian, with his first wife, Cynthia; he later married his second wife, artist Yoko Ono, and they had one son, Sean. John Lennon was murdered in New York City on December 8, 1980 by a deranged fan, as he and Ono returned home from a recording session; he was, and continues to be, mourned throughout the world."Know that the physical and mental abuse you have endured will have a lingering effect on our society," she writes in a portion of the letter directed to victims. "Know that the burden is ours." "Forgive us."Lennon was usually considered the "leader" of The Beatles, as he founded the original group, inviting his art school friend Stuart Sutcliffe and McCartney to join; McCartney in turn invited Harrison. But most group decisions were democratic, with the unwritten rule that if any member objected to an idea, the group wouldn't pursue it. In 2002, the[...]



Coretta Scott King's Legacy of Social Change

Coretta Scott King's funeral in AtlantaPublic viewing will be held at Georgia CapitolNation/WorldFebruary 3, 2006BY ERRIN HAINESASSOCIATED PRESSCoretta Scott King at home in Atlanta shortly after her husband, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was slain. Her funeral is Tuesday in suburban Atlanta, but the family hadn't released details on a burial site Thursday. (1968 Associated Press photo)To offer condolencesCards can be sent to the King family at:The King Center449 Auburn Ave. NEAtlanta, GA 30312ATLANTA -- Coretta Scott King will be given a public viewing in the rotunda of the Georgia Capitol at the governor's invitation, her family announced Thursday in a measure of how far the South has come since the civil rights era.The King family announced funeral plans for the widow of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that include a viewing at the Capitol on Saturday; another viewing Monday at Ebenezer Baptist Church, King Jr.'s longtime pulpit, and a funeral in suburban Atlanta on Tuesday at the 10,000-seat New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, where the Kings' youngest child, Bernice, is a minister.King, 78, died Tuesday at an alternative medicine clinic in Mexico where she had sought treatment for ovarian cancer.Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue's offer of a viewing at the Capitol was in stark contrast to what happened after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.Then-Gov. Lester Maddox, a fiery segregationist, refused to close the Capitol for the funeral and expressed anger over the flying of state flags at half-staff. Perdue has ordered that all flags on state property fly at half-staff until Coretta Scott King's funeral.The King family has not released details about the burial. However, the family may bury King at the South-View Cemetery in Atlanta, said Winifred Hemphill, the cemetery association's president.South-View is a historically black cemetery founded by former slaves in 1886. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s parents and maternal grandparents are buried there.Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was originally buried there but now lies in a crypt at the King Center near Ebenezer Baptist. However, the tomb is only a single-person crypt, Hemphill said.We Can Still Change AmericaThe Legacy of Coretta Scott KingBy Rep. CYNTHIA McKINNEYFebruary 1, 2006When I first heard the news about the death of Coretta Scott King I was at once both shocked and saddened. Although Mrs. King belonged to her children and cousins and nieces and nephews, she also belonged to us--the American people and the family of black people all over the world.When she was alive, there was a sense of comfort. Mother King guarded us, protected us; she helped set this country free when she picked up Martin's cross.I was given the privilege of speaking at this year's Martin Luther King ceremony at Ebenezer Church. Due to illness, she watched the proceedings on the television, not able to be there with us. Our love went out to her then and it does so now. I love the King Family as do we all. Her vision and Martin's vision moved our country forward.In 1963 Dr. King spoke of Stone Mountain, Georgia. I now represent Stone Mountain, Georgia. Change is possible in our country. It is possible for people of conscience to come together and move this country forward.What Mrs. King embodies will not be extinguished. She is our Queen Mother. And we should spend this day reflecting on her life, her legacy, her spirit, and what we will do in our lives to further Martin and Coretta's vision for our beloved community.My condolences to all the members of the King family; and to Martin III, Yolanda, Dexter, and Bernice.In every sense of the word, they were our first family and now we look to the children to wear the family's mantle.http://www.counterpunch.org/mckinney02012006.htmlMama Corett[...]



Top NASA Scientist Warns Global Meltdown is Here!

Tue, 31 Jan 2006 00:56:00 +0000

Top NASA Scientist Warns Global Warming Is Here, Claims Censorship by Bush RegimeJan-29 2006NASA's top climatologist accused officials President Bush's administration of trying to keep secret a warning he issued about potentially catastrophic changes in Earth's climate caused by rapidly rising levels of greenhouse gases. Do you think global warming is a real and present danger?Dr. James Hansen, 63, of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia University's Earth Institute published a paper last month entitled Is There Still Time to Avoid 'Dangerous Anthropogenic Interference' with Global Climate?In lay terms, Dr. Hansen's title asks whether there is still time to avoid the potentially catastrophic effects of global warming and other climate changes brought on by increasing levels of greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere."I present multiple lines of evidence indicating that the Earth's climate is nearing, but has not passed," what Dr. Hansen describes as "a tipping point," a point "beyond which it will be impossible to avoid climate change with far ranging undesirable consequences.""The changes," Dr. Hansen warns, "include not only loss of the Arctic as we know it, with all that implies for wildlife and indigenous peoples, but losses on a much vaster scale due to worldwide rising seas."At first, the respected scientist notes, losses of Greenland's ice cap in the North and Antarctica's ice cap in the South will not be rapidly apparent -- because of increases in snowfall and deposition of snow with thickening of some ice sheets.But those compensating variables are only temporary, Dr. Hansen warned. Soon, the balance will tip, dramatically, even catastrophically; and potentially irreparably.A resulting global temperature change of two to three degrees Celsius would cause a rise in sea levels on the order of 25 meters, or 80 feet.One review of Dr. Hansen's work in Sunday's Washington Post describes Earth's temperature as having risen one degree Fahrenheit during the past three decades; but concludes that warming of four degrees Fahrenheit over the next century "imply changes that constitute practically a different planet."The Post goes on to quote Dr. Hansen as saying in an interview that, "It's not something you can adapt to," and that "We can't let it go on another 10 years like this," he warned. "We've got to do something."Perhaps as distressing as Dr. Hansen's scientific conclusions were his allegations that officials of President George W. Bush's administration had attempted to prevent him from making his conclusions public."They feel their job is to be this censor of information going out to the public," Dr. Hansen said of administration officials, according to Sunday's New York Times.The Times went on to quote Dean Acosta, deputy assistant administrator for public affairs at the space agency, as saying that Dr. Hansen's description of his report sequestered is "not the way we operate here at NASA," and adding that, "We promote openness and we speak with the facts."In its report, the New York Times quotes Dr. Hansen as saying that, "Communicating with the public seems to be essential, because public concern is probably the only thing capable of overcoming the special interests that have obfuscated the topic."http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/29/science/earth/29climate.htmlIs There Still Time to Avoid "Dangerous Anthropogenic Interference" with Global Climate?Dr. James E.
