An Essay in Hopelessness

aa-Colombia-city An aim of this laudable patch of the internet is to give people in the United States some faint idea of the lands to their south. It is hard slogging. I can think of few ideas more tenaciously and lovingly held, more treasured and more satisfying to the North American mind than that Latin American countries are primitive hellholes like Detroit. Inspiring the slightest doubt of this seems virtually impossible. It would be easier to persuade Pat Robertson that Allah is the one true god. http://www.fredoneverything.net/Colombia.shtml

Libya Then and Now: An Overview of NATO’s Handiwork

aa-Libya - caskets In 2011, as the entire world watched the Arab Spring in amazement, the U.S. and its allies, predominately working under the banner of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), militarily overran the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. The peaceful civilian protesters they claimed to be intervening to protect were not really what the US and its cohorts presented to the world. Many of these so-called "protesters" were armed, and when this became apparent they eventually began to portray themselves as "rebel forces." These so-called "rebels" in Libya were not a military force that emerged spontaneously for the most part, but an insurgency movement cultivated and organised before any opposition activities were even reported in Libya. http://www.globalresearch.ca/libya-then-and-now-an-overview-of-natos-handiwork/5415563

Where to Find America’s Biggest White Pussies

aa-race - racial makeup by age Politico recently discovered that demographics and race really, truly matter, and ran a huge article expressing their enlightenment (and burnishing their anti-white bona fides). One of the featured maps helpfully reveals where in the Land of the Twee you can find the biggest white male pussies. Oh, and the most hypocritical, too. This is what the electoral map would look like if only white men had the vote. In such a world, Democrats would be lucky to win student council seats. However, there are a few (unsurprising) regions where ankle-grabbing, pillow-biting white males would continue voting for the party that hates them and wants them dispossessed from the country they built. Washington, Oregon, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts: If it’s hypocritical, sanctimonious white male pussies you want as neighbors, these are the places to be! All you’ll need to settle there is a taste for soy latte and white skin (d’oh!), although rumor has it Somali refugee status will get you there too. http://heartiste.wordpress.com/2014/11/21/where-to-find-americas-biggest-white-pussies/

Rogue President

aa-Obama - my work is done here The unanswered question is how the Obama amnesty will be remembered by history. His aides think that it will be seen as a second Emancipation Proclamation. Today, in 2014, after an influx of perhaps 50 million in 50 years, legal and illegal, no longer from Northwest Europe, or Europe at all, but Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, of every race, color, creed, culture and language, we seem less a nation than some mammoth Mall of America. An economy, but not a country. Running in 2008, Obama said he intended to become a "transformational president." With this decision, he succeeds. He has accelerated and ensured the remaking of America. http://www.creators.com/opinion/pat-buchanan/rogue-president.html

The Need to Escape Collapsing Empires

aa-expatriate Jeff: What prompted you to seek another country as an alternative to your existing country? Ron: For a start, the corrupt American legal system and the lawsuit and asset seizure threat to honest wealth, property, and savings helped motivate me to take a job in Canada. I’d had enough of the US’s closed, two-party monopoly system, where voting and every election has become a government sacrament celebrating our own enslavement without any chance by the citizens to impact government domestic, economic, or foreign policy. In America, we have a rapidly increasing militarized police force often so corrupt and out of control that recently the government of Canada warned Canadians to limit the amount of cash they take to the States. We have lost our patriot vision and now operate more like an incompetent banana republic than a constitutional republic under the rule of law. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-21/need-escape-collapsing-empires

Lavrov Accuses West of Seeking 'Regime Change' in Russia

Russia's Foreign Minister Lavrov speaks during a news conference after a meeting with his Saudi Arabian counterpart al-Faisal in Moscow Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the West on Saturday of trying to use sanctions imposed on Moscow in the Ukraine crisis to seek "regime change" in Russia. His comments stepped up Moscow's war of words with the United States and the European Union in their worst diplomatic standoff since the Cold War ended. "As for the concept behind to the use of coercive measures, the West is making clear it does not want to force Russia to change policy but wants to secure regime change," Tass news agency quoted Lavrov as telling a meeting of the advisory Foreign and Defense Policy Council in Moscow. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-21/need-escape-collapsing-empires

The Obama Amnesty

aa-immigration - Uncle Sam i want u to get used to it Contra the predictions of imminent collapse, the federal government is now reporting record tax revenues and the our expanding federal deficit means little as long as the dollar is secure as the world’s reserve currency. Some believe that other powers are rising to counter American influence, particularly Russia. Yet the entire Russian stock market is worth less than Apple (as are Singapore and Italy.) And the United States has overtaken Saudi Arabia and is now the biggest oil producer in the world. Put simply, the pax Americana continues and Bismarck is proven correct - "There is a special providence for drunkards, fools, and the United States of America." The terrible truth is that the decision to essentially hand over the country to a foreign population is being done from a position of strength. The ruling powers of the country have made the conscious decision that they can tighten their control by electing a new people. The new Third World "American" population will be willing to accept lower living standards and the transfer or resources from labor to capital. At the same time, the multicultural Left is far more concerned about attacking European-Americans and transferring their wealth to nonwhites than seriously confronting structural inequality. Socialism has been replaced by racial socialism and both "Right" and "Left" are aligned against the remnants of Middle America. http://www.counter-currents.com/2014/11/can-we-stop-pretending-yet/

NWO: Martial Law in the Soul

aa-Dees - new world order When we think of the "New World Order," we imagine loss of freedom, martial law and dictatorship. This focus distracts us from the true spiritual character of the NWO. The enemy is already within the gates. We don't need to fear solders and guns as much as our own animal nature, our greed, vanity and lust, which the NWO does everything to foster. Are we free? If not, what stands in our way, guns or our incessant desires? The NWO uses our desires to enslave us. Our penury is spiritual. We are beggars always looking for the next handout, addicts craving the next hit. http://henrymakow.com/2014/11/nwo-martial-law-in-the-soul.html

Torture, War, and No Consequences

aa-torture - waterboarding good one During the Bush era, I disliked him as much as anyone else in America. However, I could never jump on the bandwagon of "Bush and Cheney should be in the Hague!" This was mostly because I was more concerned with the horrible things they had enacted, rather than in satisfying some vengeful bloodlust. Last year, while reading Glenn Greenwald’s With Liberty and Justice for Some, I suddenly - finally - realized why people who start wars, and permit torture should be punished. Our entire society is set up to respect war criminals from Barack Obama, back to Henry Kissinger, and beyond. It dismisses their crimes, and it codifies their acceptability through that negligence. http://original.antiwar.com/lucy/2014/11/20/torture-war-and-no-consequences/

Sharyl Attkisson vs. Obama’s Police State

aa-Big Brother - 5-17-14 If the revelations of Edward Snowden didn’t convince you that we’re living in a police state, then Sharyl Attkisson’s book, Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington, is the clincher. Indeed, it is more convincing insofar as the reporting that came out of Snowden’s disclosures never definitively demonstrated how such powerful technology in the hands of unrestrained government has led to the targeting of political opponents by government officials. In Attkisson’s book, the ultimate Orwellian nightmare comes true. http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/11/20/sharyl-attkisson-vs-obamas-police-state/#.VG8-mVdf95E.email

The Myth of the Golf Nazi

Forward For most of history, being a hereditary aristocrat was a good job. The only catch was the old concept of noblesse oblige, which suggested that people of wealth, power, and influence were honor bound to defend the general public. Today, however, it’s more prestigious to be a victim of the majority. That seems to release you from any nagging worries about aristocratic responsibility. Being an actual victim, though, is still no fun. So the best thing is to be recognized as a member of a hereditary victimocracy. The president, for example, is a victim-by-blood, as illustrated by New Yorker editor David Remnick’s bestselling 2010 biography, The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama. Remnick pleased his intended audience by interspersing thrilling chapters about heroic civil rights protestors in 1965 being beaten on the bridge in Selma, Alabama with admittedly less thrilling chapters about the young Obama building sand castles on Waikiki Beach. http://takimag.com/article/the_myth_of_the_golf_nazi_steve_sailer/print#axzz3JjB8sxzN

All-Out War in Ukraine: NATO’s ’Final Offensive’

aa-map of Ukraine There are clear signs that a major war is about to break out in Ukraine: A war actively promoted by the NATO regimes and supported by their allies and clients in Asia (Japan) and the Middle East (Saudi Arabia). The war over Ukraine will essentially run along the lines of a full-scale military offensive against the southeast Donbas region, targeting the breakaway ethnic Ukraine- Russian Peoples Republic of Donetsk and Lugansk, with the intention of deposing the democratically elected government, disarming the popular militias, killing the guerrilla resistance partisans and their mass base, dismantling the popular representative organizations and engaging in ethnic cleansing of millions of bilingual Ukraino-Russian citizens. NATO’s forthcoming military seizure of the Donbas region is a continuation and extension of its original violent putsch in Kiev, which overthrew an elected Ukrainian government in February 2014. http://petras.lahaine.org/?p=2014

No One Told You When to Run, You Missed the Starting Gun

aa-American Dream - is over I stumbled across two mind blowing charts yesterday that had me pondering how generations of Americans had frittered their lives away, spending money they didn’t have  on things they didn’t need, utilizing easy to acquire debt, and saving virtually nothing for their futures or a rainy day. We are a nation of Peter Pans who never grew up. While I was driving home from work, one of my favorite Pink Floyd tunes came on the radio and the lyrics to Time seemed to fit perfectly with the charts I had just discovered. We were all young once. Old age and retirement don’t even enter your thought process when you are young. Most people aren’t sure what they want to do for the rest of their lives when they are in their early twenties. Slaving away at your entry level low paying job, chasing the opposite sex, getting drunk, and having fun on the weekends is the standard for most young people. But you eventually have to grow up. Because one day you find ten years have got behind you. No one tells you when to grow up. And based on the charts below, tens of millions missed the starting gun. http://www.theburningplatform.com/2014/11/20/no-one-told-you-when-to-run-you-missed-the-starting-gun/

Congress is Irrelevant on Mass Surveillance

aa-Congress - monkees So the pro-NSA Republican senators were actually arguing that if the NSA were no longer allowed to bulk-collect the communication records of Americans inside the U.S., then ISIS would kill you and your kids. But because they were speaking in an empty chamber and only to their warped and insulated D.C. circles and sycophantic aides, there was nobody there to cackle contemptuously or tell them how self-evidently moronic it all was. So they kept their Serious Faces on like they were doing The Nation’s Serious Business, even though what was coming out of their mouths sounded like the demented ramblings of a paranoid End is Nigh cult. The boredom of this spectacle was simply due to the fact that this has been seen so many times before-in fact, every time in the post-9/11 era that the U.S. Congress pretends publicly to debate some kind of foreign policy or civil liberties bill. Just enough members stand up to scream "9/11? and "terrorism" over and over until the bill vesting new powers is passed or the bill protecting civil liberties is defeated. https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/11/19/irrelevance-u-s-congress-stopping-nsas-mass-surveillance/

America Watches in Stunned Disbelief as Afghanistan Jails Two Failed Bank Executives

aa-banksters - w uncle sam on wall street Spot the banana republic: Nation #1 spends and issues tens of trillions in taxpayer funds and debt, crushing the growth potential of future generations, just to bail out a banking sector full to the brim with criminal "riggers" (as today's settlements once again prove), where bubble mania was so pervasive not a single bank would have survived absent a global central bank bailout, and where bank executives wouldn't bend over for anything less than a million. Nation #2 just sentenced two senior officials of a bank that collapsed under (a measly by New Normal standards) $1 billion in debt to 15 years in prison each for embezzlement and fraud. Nation #1 is, of course, the US (or any other western nation).

Neo-Feudalism Has Officially Arrived -- Congressman Suggests Building a Moat Around the White House

aa-serfs and peasants good one Faced with an increasing number of White House intrusions that led to the resignation of a Secret Service director, a congressman on Wednesday suggested that maybe a moat should be erected around the president’s home. The suggestion was made by Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, at a House Judiciary Committee hearing. With hand gestures, Cohen suggested a moat roughly six-feet wide may be "attractive" and "effective." Joseph Clancy, the acting director of the Secret Service, didn’t dismiss the suggestion out of hand. "Sir, it may be," he said. Clancy said the Secret Service and the National Park Service were discussing ways to ensure security along with access to the White House for the American people. In case you aren’t familiar with Steve Cohen, I covered his fascist tendencies in the past. Recall the post: Rep. Steve Cohen Calls Tea Party Republicans "Domestic Enemies" on MSNBC. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-20/neo-feudalism-has-officially-arrived-%E2%80%93-congressman-suggests-building-moat-around-whi

The Microaggression Farce

aa-race card In November 2013, two dozen graduate students at the University of California at Los Angeles marched into an education class and announced a protest against its "hostile and unsafe climate for Scholars of Color." The students had been victimized, they claimed, by racial "microaggression"-the hottest concept on campuses today, used to call out racism otherwise invisible to the naked eye. UCLA’s response to the sit-in was a travesty of justice. The education school sacrificed the reputation of a beloved and respected professor in order to placate a group of ignorant students making a specious charge of racism. The pattern would repeat itself twice more at UCLA that fall: students would allege that they were victimized by racism, and the administration, rather than correcting the students’ misapprehension, penitently acceded to it. Colleges across the country behave no differently. As student claims of racial and gender mistreatment grow ever more unmoored from reality, campus grown-ups have abdicated their responsibility to cultivate an adult sense of perspective and common sense in their students. Instead, they are creating what tort law calls "eggshell plaintiffs"-preternaturally fragile individuals injured by the slightest collisions with life. The consequences will affect us for years to come. http://city-journal.com/2014/24_4_racial-microaggression.html#.VG3xVQiiXIA.email

Meet the Warmongering Billionaires Who Will Spend a Fortune to Influence the Next President

aa-Sheldon Adelson Saban and Adelson are on opposite ends of the mainstream (and narrow) political spectrum. Adelson is a casino mogul who bankrolled the 2012 presidential campaigns of GOP candidates Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. Saban is in the entertainment business and is a major Democratic Party donor. But when it comes to U.S. foreign policy and Israel, Saban and Adelson take many of the the same positions, displaying an eagerness for war with Iran and a desire to keep the U.S. alliance with Israel rock-solid. "There’s no right or left when it comes to Israel," Saban said in what news reports called a joking reference to the moguls’ seating positions at the conference where they spoke. But the quip was more than just a joke. It was a nod to how the Democratic and Republican parties are united in singing Israel’s praise, backing its military actions and voting to give the country $3.1 billion in U.S. military aid annually. If Adelson’s and Saban’s chosen candidates in 2016 get their way, that unity will shine through during the presidential campaign, with the debate being reduced to who would support Israel the most. http://www.alternet.org/meet-warmongering-billionaires-who-will-spend-fortune-influence-next-president

Social Media -- Freak Show for the Anti-Social

aa-social media troll There is a widespread misconception that the new media represents an increase in freedom, democracy, and even objectivity for the simple reason that the social media that drives it lacks a paymaster and participation in it is voluntary. After all the only "currency" changing hands is an exchange of "likes," "shares," "thumbs up," and comments. But the idea that the new media is somehow socially, politically, and morally neutral is an obvious absurdity. Since its advent we have seen increasingly extreme and aberrant ideas (gay marriage, "White privilege," etc.) gain traction in our culture, not to mention stupid people becoming famous at a much higher rate. Despite the old media's blatant cheerleading for corporate interests, it also had to conform to popular tastes to some extent in order to sell its media products to the masses. Now that media companies make their money through hits n' clicks, and by attracting viral traffic through social media, the general public can be ignored in favor of the relentlessly on-line public. These happen to be two radically different entities. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/11/social-media-freakshow-for-antisocial.html

This trend is usually greeted with pessimism and hand-wringing by race realists, but at some point it will almost certainly create a surge of racially conscious white political power.

And It's Gone: Ukraine Admits 'There is Almost No Gold Left in the Central Bank Vault'

aa-banksters - 10-19-13 Back in March we reported of a strange incident that took place just after the Ukraine presidential coup, namely that according to at least one source, "in a mysterious operation under the cover of night, Ukraine's gold reserves were promptly loaded onboard an unmarked plane, which subsequently took the gold to the U.S." Needless to say there was no official confirmation of any of this taking place, and in fact our report, in which we mused if the "price of Ukraine's liberation" was the handover of its gold to the Fed at a time when Germany was actively seeking to repatriate its own physical gold located at the bedrock of the NY Fed, led to the usual mainstream media mockery. Until now. In an interview on Ukraine TV, none other than the head of the Ukraine Central Bank made the stunning admission that "in the vaults of the central bank there is almost no gold left. There is a small amount of gold bullion left, but it's just 1% of the gold reserves." http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-18/ukraine-admits-its-gold-gone .

The more the neocons and politicians such as John McCain and Lindsey Graham escalate the rhetoric, the closer we come to war. As the U.S. government now embraces pre-emptive arrest and detention of those who might someday commit a crime, the entire cadre of neocon warmongers should be arrested and indefinitely detained before they destroy humanity. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/11/16/next-presidential-election-will-move-world-closer-war-paul-craig-roberts/

The Siege of Julian Assange is a Farce

aa-Julian Assange The siege of Knightsbridge is a farce. For two years, an exaggerated, costly police presence around the Ecuadorean embassy in London has served no purpose other than to flaunt the power of the state. Their quarry is an Australian charged with no crime, a refugee from gross injustice whose only security is the room given him by a brave South American country. His true crime is to have initiated a wave of truth-telling in an era of lies, cynicism and war. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/11/17/siege-julian-assange-farce-john-pilger/

The CIA Won the Midterm Elections

aa-CIA - man walking on logo And so it goes. Feeble congressional attempts to rein in and establish some accountability relating to the out-of-control intelligence community are now dead. Worse still, the likely acceptance of a GOP perception that the United States is experiencing a national security failure as it confronts a broad array of intractable foreign threats fits in neatly with the Clapper warning about a "perfect storm." Budgets will rise and concerns over extraordinary measures being used to confront the menace will be placed on the back burner. How long will it be before we again start referring to the "global war on terror?" http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/11/no_author/the-cia-won/

Smoking Mirrors

There are companion waves of self interest and larger than all of them are the waves of anger at the outrageous injustice being played out by the monsters of our times. There’s so much going on behind the scenes. There is so much that is dark and dreadful that has been kept under wraps and carried out under wraps or in spite of whoever might know or not know because ’they’ are so secure in their freedom to do whatever they please, or WERE secure. However... as day follows day, Mr. Apocalypse is tearing the concealments away. You can see it happening! You can see it; can’t you?

The ’USA Freedom Act’ is a Fraud

aa-Big Brother - is watching good one The "Freedom Act" is quite free with its Orwellian redefinition of common words to mean the exact opposite of what they have traditionally meant: for example, the bill defines a "selector" in such a way as to permit NSA to report a dragnet order collecting everyone’s VISA bill as a single order targeting specific alleged terrorist outfits - when, in the real world, it would legalize surveillance of over 300 million US citizens. No wonder Deputy NSA Director Richard Ledgett says that under the terms of the bill "the actual universe of potential calls that could be queried against is [potentially] dramatically larger." http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/11/16/the-usa-freedom-act-is-a-fraud/#.VGn3Me42bpw.email

Even though Cosby and I grew up a mere 10 miles from one another-me in a brick suburban row home and he in North Philly’s brutal Richard Allen housing projects-there were no blacks in my neighborhood. Everyone around me was either Irish or Italian, and as far as I knew, they were all Catholic. I knew that black people existed in theory, but I don’t remember ever meeting one until I was at least eight. http://takimag.com/article/americas_rapist_dad_jim_goad/print#axzz3JMNwlcR4

The Jewish Establishment

aa-jewish establishment in america by Joseph Sobran (1995) It's permissible to discuss the power of every other group, from the Black Muslims to the Christian Right, but the much greater power of the Jewish Establishment is off-limits. That, in fact, is the chief measure of its power. Explicitly "Jewish" organizations like the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League enforce a dual standard. What is permitted to Israel is forbidden to America. This is not just thoughtless inconsistency. These organizations consciously support one set of principles here -- equal rights for all, ethnic neutrality, separation of church and state -- and their precise opposites in Israel, where Jewish ancestry and religion enjoy privilege. http://www.sobran.com/establishment.shtml

Back in Anbar, U.S. Troops Face an Uphill Battle

aa-Iraq - mission accomplished The return of U.S. ground troops to the Anbar Province, the site of some of the bloodiest battles during the last U.S. occupation of Iraq, threatens to bring those US troops directly into contact with ISIS. Indeed, though the Pentagon downplays the risk of any incidents, saying the troops will remain at "fixed sites" inside Anbar, such an incident may be inevitable, with ISIS controlling more than 80 percent of Anbar, and doubtless keen to inflict U.S. military casualties. The very sites the Pentagon is current considering are a series of bases as yet untaken by ISIS, and in the past ISIS has shown remarkable effectiveness in moving against such bases with both infiltration and bombing attacks, inflicting large Iraqi military casualties. http://news.antiwar.com/2014/11/12/back-in-anbar-us-troops-face-an-uphill-battle/#.VGRovZRmSTk.email

Russia’s Vulnerability to EU-U.S. Sanctions and Military Encroachments

aa-Russia and US struggle The U.S.-EU sponsored coup in the Ukraine and its conversion from a stable Russian trading partner, to a devastated EU economic client and NATO launch pad, as well as the subsequent economic sanctions against Russia for supporting the Russian ethnic majority in the Donbas region and Crimea, illustrate the dangerous vulnerability of the Russian economy and state. The current effort to increase Russia’s national security and economic viability in the face of these challenges requires a critical analysis of the policies and structures emerging in the post-Soviet era. http://www.globalresearch.ca/russias-vulnerability-to-eu-us-sanctions-and-military-encroachments/5412884

All signs point to war with Russia. USA, EU, and Ukraine are doing the same thing Russia that England, France, USA, and Poland did to Germany in 1939. They do not want peace, they want dominance. If war does come, it will go nuclear quickly. The West could not defeat the Taliban. How are they going to beat the Russians, a highly trained, and motivated military? Putin is right, just as Hitler was in 1939!

Russia to Dispatch Long-Range Bomber Patrols Over Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean

aa-Russian military planes While the West is seemingly eager to once again restart the military escalation, if only in rhetoric for now, surrounding the east-Ukraine conflict, leading to a report that the "European Union and the U.S. will weigh further sanctions against Russia’s economy and Ukrainian separatists, after the reported movement of tanks, artillery and combat troops into eastern Ukraine", Russia has chosen to change track completely and give the U.S. a dose of its own cooking, by bringing the military threat next to the borders of the U.S. itself. As cited by RIA and Bloomberg, yesterday Russian Defense Minister Shoigu said that "his country’s military will start conducting regular long-range bomber patrols along Russia’s borders and over the Arctic Ocean." It gets better: while Russia has repeatedly denied it has moved its own troops into east Ukraine contrary to western press reports over the past week, it is making it quite clear it will soon move bombers just off the coast of the U.S.: the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-13/russia-dispatch-long-range-bomber-patrols-over-gulf-mexico-caribbean

My sources tell me that Putin is simply waiting for the cold weather to hit Europe (which we are starting to see now) before he announces price increases and really puts pressure on the European Union. So to a large degree, world currency markets, metals markets, and energy markets, are in the hands of Putin, and the question is, when will he make his move and strike a blow against the West? http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2014/11/13_Putin_Is_About_To_Rock_The_Gold,_Oil_%26_Currency_Markets.html

'Pimp Fascism' Rebootyed

aa-video - Rhianna I've never really seen what all the fuss is about Rihanna, who is apparently the world's biggest pop star or thereabouts. Her music is...yawn! But she's a chick, so the quality of her choons is probably a matter of secondary importance. Her success must be based mainly on her looks and vibe, but even here I can't quite see it. She has a juvenile-looking face that probably appeals to paedos, plus what looks like a serious underbite and rather too capacious a forehead for her chosen profession. It's very hard being a pop star of colour, especially if the "colour" is Black, due to White privilege and racism. No, don't laugh! It's true! ...At least if you're a pop star. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/11/pimp-fascism-rebootyed.html#more

Black Tuesday -- The War Party Won

aa-American Empire - banana republic The robots and day traders greeted last Tuesday’s Republican election sweep with another kneejerk rally because the GOP’s new Capitol Hill dominance will allegedly be good for investors. Would that there were any real investors left--but, in any event, what the election really did was populate the Imperial City with a huge new phalanx of neocons and hawks. In a word, the War Party won. This means that the Warfare State will prosper, the budget deficit will again soar, more government shutdowns will materialize and the day of fiscal reckoning will come that much sooner. How that is good for investors is hard to fathom. But never mind. The casino previously known as the stock market trades one day at a time based on the monetary juice and word clouds emitted by the world’s central banks. This new Wall Street casino anticipates no future, remembers no history, discounts no risks and discovers no honest prices. It is a hothouse colony of the central banks. To be sure, once upon a time the prospect of escalating war and blood in the trenches caused markets to tank. Investors knew that cranking up the war machine meant higher taxes, currency inflation, capital market dislocations, economic regimentation, trade disruptions and productive asset destruction. They down-rated the value of current profits accordingly. But we are in a different world today--an unreal one where government debts are massively monetized and wars are fought on the far side of the earth with high altitude bombers, sea-launched cruise missiles and drones piloted from the Nevada desert. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/11/david-stockman/black-tuesday/

Secessionist Movements in America Refuse to Die

aa-secession - flag ripped nearly in half In Texas it’s, well, predictably Texan, where many dream of establishing a government based on limited powers and Christian values. Secessionist wannabes in the state have used many tactics over the years, from ignoring federal laws to setting up "embassies" in places like Washington and London during the 1800s. But the secessionist group du jour is surely the Alaskan Independence Party (AKIP). With 15,255 registered members, the AKIP is the third largest political force in Alaska and was joined at one point by Sarah Palin’s husband Todd. As in Texas, this party has a heavily libertarian agenda saying that "considering the moral, educational, and economic decay of the U.S., Alaskans who hold themselves to a higher standard might very well decide to at least maintain an arm’s length distance from a country in decline." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/06/america-secession_n_6116040.html

The $9 Billion Witness: Meet JPMorgan Chase's Worst Nightmare

aa-banksters - not jailed but protestors are She tried to stay quiet, she really did. But after eight years of keeping a heavy secret, the day came when Alayne Fleischmann couldn't take it anymore. "It was like watching an old lady get mugged on the street," she says. "I thought, 'I can't sit by any longer.'" Fleischmann is a tall, thin, quick-witted securities lawyer in her late thirties, with long blond hair, pale-blue eyes and an infectious sense of humor that has survived some very tough times. She's had to struggle to find work despite some striking skills and qualifications, a common symptom of a not-so-common condition called being a whistle-blower. Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported - more on that later) to keep the public from hearing. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-9-billion-witness-20141106

When Pat Buchanan described the American Congress as "Israeli-occupied territory" in the run up to the first Gulf war, he clearly underestimated the problem. Although Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban didn’t mean to underscore and enlarge Buchanan’s point, this they surely did at the first national conference of a new pro-Israel lobbying group, the Israeli-American Council (IAC), where the two multi-billionaires appeared together on stage.

If Everything is Just Fine, Why Are So Many Financial Experts Forecasting Economic Disaster?

aa-Depression 2.0 - now in color good one The parallels between the false prosperity of 2007 and the false prosperity of 2014 are rather striking. If we go back and look at the numbers in the fall of 2007, we find that the Dow set an all-time high in October, margin debt on Wall Street had spiked to record levels, the unemployment rate was below 5 percent and Americans were getting ready to spend a record amount of money that Christmas season. But then the very next year the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression shook the entire planet and everyone wondered why most people never saw it coming. Well, now a similar pattern is unfolding right before our eyes. Once this false bubble of hope runs out, all of our lives are going to dramatically change. http://www.silverdoctors.com/if-everything-is-just-fine-why-are-so-many-financial-experts-forecasting-economic-disaster/

The Prospect of Nuclear War

aa-internet troll Just as I hold the dishonesty of presidents, government officials, presstitutes, police, and banksters to account, I hold the dishonesty of trolls and their ilk to account. In several columns this year I have pointed out that Washington’s consistent and aggressive lies about Russia and Putin’s intentions, Washington’s coup in overthrowing the elected Ukrainian government and installing Washington’s puppets, and Washington’s whipping up NATO into a military frenzy against Russia are reckless and dangerous actions that could lead to nuclear war. Trolls portrayed this concern as the ravings of an unbalanced person who had fallen victim to forebodings of doom and distrust of his government. Nuclear war, they said, is irrational and therefore could not happen, and doomsayers should be ignored. This despite the facts that neoconservatives are advocates for nuclear weapons and their use. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/11/11/prospect-nuclear-war-paul-craig-roberts/

Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Has Seized $904 Million in Private Property Through 'Civil Asset Forfeiture'

aa-asset forfeiture Obama is trying to rush the confirmation of his new Attorney General through the Senate before the newly elected Republican majority takes over. But there are plenty of reasons why Senators on both sides of the aisle should have great pause before approving Loretta Lynch. In recent months, much has been written about the concept of "civil asset forfeiture," in which police routinely steal billions of dollars worth of private property without even so much as criminal charges. As it turns out, Loretta Lynch is all for it, and her US attorney’s office has benefited from it to the tune of nearly a BILLION dollars. http://www.blacklistednews.com/Obama%E2%80%99s_AG_nominee_has_seized_%24904_million_in_private_property_through_%E2%80%9Ccivil_asset_forfeiture%E2%80%9D/39092/0/38/38/Y/M.html

Bread, Circuses and Bombs -- Decline of the American Empire

aa-American Empire - statue of liberty and military It seems there were a few visionary thinkers in the late 1950s who foresaw the dire course our former Republic was setting. Their writings were a prophecy and a warning. There was still time to change course and avoid the pitfalls that led to the Roman Empire collapse. In Brave New World Revisited, Aldous Huxley warned against allowing a few amoral men using propaganda, scientific advancements, technology, brainwashing, and economics to control and manipulate a willfully ignorant populace into a dystopian dictatorship. The Soviet and Chinese dictatorships of the late 1950s are long gone, but Huxley foresaw how modern propaganda techniques would be used by the state to drown the masses in a sea of triviality, irrelevance, and consumerism. "In their propaganda today’s dictators rely for the most part on repetition, suppression and rationaliza­tion - the repetition of catchwords which they wish to be accepted as true, the suppression of facts which they wish to be ignored, the arousal and rationaliza­tion of passions which may be used in the interests of the Party or the State. As the art and science of manip­ulation come to be better understood, the dictators of the future will doubtless learn to combine these tech­niques with the non-stop distractions which, in the West, are now threatening to drown in a sea of irrele­vance the rational propaganda essential to the mainten­ance of individual liberty and the survival of demo­cratic institutions." http://www.theburningplatform.com/2014/11/09/bread-circuses-bombs-decline-of-the-american-empire-part-two/

Veteran's Day Requires a Rethink

They appeal to our patriotism to sucker us in. We are told we are fighting to "preserve freedom" when the opposite is actually the case. So how should we regard veterans? Certainly, a few are heroes, but usually in a bogus cause. I think we have to regard them as dupes and mercenaries. We have all been duped for a very long time.

It Begins: German Bank Charging Negative Interest to Its Customers

aa-bail-in - very good cartoon We’ve already seen this at the institutional level: commercial banks in Europe are paying the ECB negative interest on certain balances. And large investors are paying European governments negative interest on certain bonds. Now we’re seeing this effect bleed over into retail banking. It’s starting with higher net worth individuals (the average guy doesn’t have half a million euros laying around in the bank). But the trend here is pretty clear- financial repression is coming soon to a bank near you. It almost seems like an episode from the Twilight Zone... or some bizarre parallel universe. That’s the investment environment we’re in now. Bottom line: if you’re responsible with your money and set some aside for the future, you will be penalized. If you blow your savings and go into debt, you will be rewarded. http://www.silverdoctors.com/it-begins-german-bank-charging-negative-interest-to-its-customers/

Beauty and the Beast

aa-Monica Lewinsky The reason I mention this is because my stop was just after New Haven, where Yale University, once a great institution, is now hounding the former head cardiologist for sending a love letter to an Italian researcher-a woman, as it happens-who now accuses him of sexual harassment. (As I’ve written countless of these things, perhaps I should turn myself in.) The newspaper that prints only what fits its politically correct agenda devoted a front page to this matter last Sunday. The doc was suspended for 18 months but the women want him out for good; now he has reportedly stepped out again and "decided not to return" to his post. Imagine if Rochdale or Rotherham had happened at Yale. I wonder whether they would be covered by the paper-as it would present race and ethnicity versus feminism. http://takimag.com/article/beauty_and_the_beast_taki/print#axzz3IgkZ8zWn

aa-Berlin Wall - fall of Twenty-five years ago this week, the Soviet empire in Eastern Europe was collapsing. The Berlin Wall had been breached. The Communist East German government was literally swept away by the storm tide of history. It was also the most dangerous moment the world had faced since the 1963 Cuban missile crisis. What would the Soviet leadership do? Just graciously give way or use its huge Red Army and KGB to crush the uprisings? Interestingly, in a raw exposure of shameful historical enmity, Britain’s prime minister Margaret Thatcher and France’s president Francois Mitterand both called Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to urge him not to allow German reunification. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/11/eric-margolis/the-fall-of-the-wall-almost-started-wwiii/

Jerusalem Post confirms Israel knew USS Liberty was American A 2004 transcript of an Israeli military tape published in the Jerusalem Post supports the unanimous position of the survivors and many high-ranking US officers that Israeli forces knew the USS Liberty was an American ship, as they attempted to sink it. (re: the subject of starting WW3 or attempting to)

Mikhail Gorbachev learned that no good deed goes unpunished. On the other hand he may, if he is lucky, live to see the collapse of the US.

A White Woman Walks Through a White Part of Town and Gets No Catcalls

aa-feminism - stop oppressing me good one A hilariously droll response to that Shoshana Roberts catcall-baiting (s)troll through the heterodusk community was recently uploaded to YouTube. It features an attractive white woman taking a 10-hour walk through predominately white Auckland and having her experience recorded by a companion operating a concealed GoPro camera. Other than the white PUA flashing some game, and a flabby beta foreigner asking her for directions, she manages to walk the entire city unmolested by white men with active sex drives. Lesson of the tape: White men don’t catcall. If you are a woman who secretly wants catcalls to feel attractive to men, and you don’t care about catcaller quality or courtship skill level, your best bet is to have a steatopygic ass stuffed into [screw]-me jeans and a parade route through Harlem during work hours. http://heartiste.wordpress.com/2014/11/06/a-white-woman-walks-through-a-white-part-of-town-and-gets-no-catcalls/

The Fundamental Problem With Man-Hating Feminists

aa-feminism - angry woman Normal, psychologically healthy women (read: pretty women), intuitively grasp that men and women are very different on and under the hood. They may not know the evolutionary reasons for the differences, or care to know, but their acceptance of men as men permits them to behave in a more charming feminine manner, and to appease men’s desire (or avoid inciting it when necessary) because it’s fun and exciting instead of an "injustice" that must be raged against. Feminist spite and resentment towards men comes from a place of studied ignorance and, in some instances, envy of male sexuality. I think a lot of avowed feminists are ugly broads who secretly yearn to possess the liberated and unencumbered sexual joy that is the birthright of men. http://heartiste.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/the-fundamental-problem-with-man-hating-feminists/

Ron Paul: 'We Don't Have A Democracy -- The U.S. Political System is a Monopoly'

aa-Republicrats - sheeple All hope isn’t lost, however; according to Paul, American politics can still be changed if individuals intent on third-party ideas introduce their ethos to the current establishment. Americans can "fight to get rid of the monopoly of Republicans and Democrats," Paul said, or "try to influence people with ideas and infiltrate both political parties." http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-07/ron-paul-we-dont-have-democracy-us-political-system-monopoly

PM Fund Manager: U.S. Will Start WWIII to Avoid Admitting Gold Reserves Are Gone

aa-gold - Chinese buying gold Time is starting to run out for ability of the U.S. to keep kicking the can of collapse down the road. I really believe that the full-on intensity of the recent intervention in the precious metals market is the most obvious signal of time expiring. China has been accumulating physical gold at a stunning rate and now some research indicates that China’s Central Bank may have accumulated significantly more gold than anyone previously thought. China has most likely maneuvered itself into owning the world’s largest stock of gold, which is where the U.S. had positioned itself after WW2. China has done this to a large degree by buying massive quantities of western Central Bank gold. We’ve come full circle, only with China in the Midas throne this time around. Eventually the world is going to revert back to a gold-backed currency system. When this happens, the U.S. will be required to demonstrate that it possesses the amount of gold that it reports to own. The only caveat here is that the U.S. will start WW3 before it’s forced to reveal the truth about its empty gold vault. That’s how broken our system really is. http://www.silverdoctors.com/pm-fund-manager-us-will-start-ww3-to-avoid-admitting-gold-reserves-are-gone/

Central Planners are in a State of Panic

aa-bail-in - very good cartoon They are trying everything and anything to create market validation for their policies, watching with trepidation as their favored economic metrics fail to respond to all of their frenzied efforts. They are so far over the tips of their skis right now that there's nothing they won't do. They've summarily thrown granny under the bus because they have this idea that negative real interest rates are the cure. The cure for what? The massive amounts of debts and imbalances their prior policies caused. So savers are punished in the pursuit of policy. You know, 'for the greater good' and all that. They've spurred the greatest wealth gap ever in US history, greater even than at the extremes of the Great Depression, apparently without the slightest concerns for Plutarch's ancient admonition that "An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics." They've even gone so far in Europe as to now force negative nominal interest rates on savers, dispensing with their usual slight-of-hand of letting inflation steal from each unit of currency in their system. When you're panicking, there's no time for subtlety. http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88617/central-planners-state-panic

50 Percent of American Workers Make Less Than $28,031 a Year

aa-serfs and peasants good one The Social Security Administration has just released wage statistics for 2013, and the numbers are startling. Last year, 50 percent of all American workers made less than $28,031, and 39 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000. Every avenue of prosperity for the middle class is under assault, and there does not appear to be much hope that this will change any time soon. And the truly frightening thing is that this is about as good as things are going to get for the middle class. As if things weren’t already bad enough for the average American worker, we are rapidly approaching the next major wave of our long-term economic decline. http://www.silverdoctors.com/50-percent-of-american-workers-make-less-than-28031-a-year/

Why is There No Affirmative Action for Jews?

aa-Jews - is it good for the jews As every schoolboy know, Jews have been to the forefront of civil rights, diversity and Affirmative Action from Day 1. The ACLU, $PLC and various other Jewish pressure groups have assiduously examined employment statistics and developed complex mathematical formulae to determine each ethnic grouping's appropriate representational level. But never for themselves. And this of course is entirely attributable to the legendary altruistic, selfless pursuit of the common good that we've come to associate with Jews. The worry themselves sick about justice for blacks, Muslims, lesbians, Hispanics, women but never for themselves. Well dammit, if they won't do it for themselves, then I will! And I'm starting it here and now. Common justice demands it. They have waited, mute but hopeful, for long enough. So here's my plan. As for every other minority an examination of Jewish representation will be undertaken at all our enterprises and institutions, and, applying the prevailing formulations, the appropriate Jewish representation level will be calculated. http://henrymakow.com/2014/11/affirmative-action.html

Another Fake Bin Laden Story

aa-Osama bin Laden RT, one of my favorite news sources, has fallen for a fake story put out by the Pentagon to support the fantasy story that a SEAL team killed Osama bin Laden, who died a second time in Abbottabad, Pakistan, a decade after his first death from illness and disease. This fake story together with the fake movie and the fake book by an alleged SEAL team member is the way the fake story of bin Laden’s murder is perpetrated. Bin Laden’s alleged demise at the hands of a SEAL team was a propaganda orchestration, the purpose of which was to give Obama a hero’s laurels and deep six Democratic talk of challenging his nomination for a second term. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/11/07/another-fake-bin-laden-story-paul-craig-roberts/

Empire vs. Peaceful Living

aa-American Empire - statue of liberty and military It’s time for the majority of people in the United States to realize what the federal government really is; the most violent, out of control, destructive entity on earth and is by far the greatest purveyor of suffering the human race has ever experienced. Countries require an equilibrium to continue to have peace and stability within them. Factors such as shared social and cultural lineage, religion, language and more. That is why you see so much chaos in the "countries" of the Middle East, Africa and South America. The boundaries on the map do not accurately reflect those shared social and cultural bonds, they were carved out by imperial powers over the course of centuries of colonialism. The reality is that the United States should most likely be two or three countries with autonomous legal authority to their own. Perhaps North-Northeast, the South, Midwest-West. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/11/no_author/the-most-violent-destructive-entity-on-earth/

None Dare Call It a Defeat: The U.S. in Afghanistan

aa-Afghanistan - good battle scene By now, the longest war in U.S. history has cost some $1 trillion, maybe more. No one can properly account for the billions and billions of US dollars flown into Afghanistan and Iraq and dished out to the natives - or the numbers of Afghans killed. For Washington's allies, like Canada and Britain, the war has been a total waste of lives and treasure ... Forget all the phony claims about "mission" and "nation building." This has been yet another dirty little colonial war that is better forgotten - and never repeated. So this war will simmer on, at least until Washington finds some face-saving way out of the mess in the Hindu Kush. If the U.S. was wise, it would simply quit Afghanistan. But power, like opium, is highly addictive. So America's longest war will drag on and on. http://ericmargolis.com/2014/11/none-dare-call-it-a-defeat/

Land of the Free Watch: Wall Street Can Now Disable Your Car When You're Driving on the Freeway

aa-car - driver Imagine this scenario: You’re on an important trip miles from home and stopped in traffic, but before you can continue on your way, your car shuts down. You’ve got enough gas in the tank and no mechanical problems. But you’re stranded far from home because you’re a few days late on your car payment and the lender won’t let you drive until the debt is paid. If this sounds like part of a dystopian future in which repo men are now cyborgs, it’s not. It’s happening today and becoming a big part of the new automotive landscape. Car dealers and automotive lenders are targeting those with poor credit by installing GPS-based kill switches, or starter-interrupt devices, on the cars that they sell. The New York Times recently reported that about 2 million cars are now outfitted with such kill switches in the U.S., which is about one-quarter of subprime car loans, and creditors are not shy when it comes to remotely disabling cars whose owners are behind on their payments. http://www.alternet.org/subprime-lending-car-buyers-fueling-bubble?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

Lessons of the Midterm Elections

aa-Rand Paul - sitting between israeli and US flags The lesson of Pryor’s defeat should be clear enough: the neocons play hardball, and only playing harder ball is going to bring them down. Whether Sen. Paul and the small but growing noninterventionist caucus can assimilate this tutorial in time to avoid disaster for themselves and the country is an open question. Who will stand against the War Party when it comes to the question of World War III in the Middle East? Sen. Paul - who’s spent the last few months kissing up to the Israel lobby? I’d like to believe it’s likely, or even a real possibility - but, like the Senator, I’m a realist, so I’m just going to sit back, chill out, and watch the drama unfold. http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/11/06/lessons-of-the-midterm-elections/#.VFzkT-MwzC8.email

A Tale of Two Nations: Democracy in Israel, Depravity in Britain

aa-Jewish hypocrisy - good quote The Israeli journalist Benjamin Pogrund has laid it on the line: "Israel is a Jewish state because that is the will of the majority; this will not change." Millions of Jews around the world will applaud that sentiment. I applaud it myself: Israel is a genuine democracy. But imagine a White journalist saying this: "Europe is a White Christian continent because that is the will of the majority; this must not change." How would most Jews react? With horror, of course. What’s good for Jewish Israel isn’t good for White Christian Europe, which must open its borders to the world and abolish itself in a flood of non-White, non-Christian vibrancy. The Jewish vision for Europe is simple: it must undergo a "transformation from monolithic ethnic-based nation-states into heterogeneous nations built on citizenship." Those are the words of Barbara Lerner Spectre, an energetic Jewish activist who works hard to keep Sweden at the forefront of that transformation. http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/11/a-tale-of-two-nations-democracy-in-israel-depravity-in-britain/

Electoral Prisms and the Case for Secession

aa-secession - flag ripped nearly in half Meanwhile, the great wheel rolls along... crushing in it’s path all it was allegedly designed to safeguard. Gone are the lofty ideals or noble intentions held by the inventors - the machine now only exists to sustain itself, and it will burn through every last crumb of the people’s liberty and treasure before it comes to a sputtering crash. No one can agree on plan of action or who should carry it out - and the only near universal truth at this point - the one thing that pluralities of Americans can align with - is that we hate the bastards running the country - and the sons-of-bitches who vote for’em. Which side? Doesn’t matter. U.S. citizens are no longer united by beliefs, goals or principles. We have never, in all our lives, seen such a compelling argument for the dissolution of this nation. http://www.theburningplatform.com/2014/11/06/electoral-prisms-and-the-case-for-secession/

The FBI: America’s Secret Police

aa-FBI - surveillance top secret Suffice it to say that when and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America: how a nation that once abided by the rule of law and held the government accountable for its actions has steadily devolved into a police state where justice is one-sided, a corporate elite runs the show, representative government is a mockery, police are extensions of the military, surveillance is rampant, privacy is extinct, and the law is little more than a tool for the government to browbeat the people into compliance. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/11/john-w-whitehead/the-american-secret-police-2/

Debt on Wheels

aa-debt bubble Soaring auto sales are not so much a sign of a strong economy as they are an indication of financial hanky-panky. We saw this same type of fakery play out in housing between 2004 - 2006, when prices went through the roof due to a mortgage-lending scam ("subprime") that crashed the stock market and sent the economy reeling. Now the bigtime money guys are at it again, writing up auto loans for anyone who can sit upright in a chair and scribble an "X" on the dotted line. As a result, car sales have surged to over 16 million for the last 6 months. (A full 7 million more than the low point in January, 2009.) And it’s not hard to see why either. The finance gurus are packaging these sketchy subprimes into bonds, offloading them on eager investors, and recycling the profits into more crappy loans. It’s a perfect circle and it won’t end until the loans start blowing up, jittery investors head for the exits, and Uncle Sugar rides to the rescue with more bailouts. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/11/05/debt-on-wheels/

aa-Pearl Harbor - attacked from a distance On the morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese planes, launched from aircraft carriers, attacked the American fleet at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, sinking or heavily damaging 18 ships (including eight battleships), destroying 188 planes, and leaving over 2,000 servicemen killed. Up until then, however, Americans had overwhelmingly opposed involvement in World War II. They had been thoroughly disillusioned by the First World War. http://jamesperloff.com/2014/11/06/pearl-harbor-roosevelts-911/

The Middle Class is Collapsing in the United States

aa-American dream - George Carlin In 1970, general tuition at the University of Pennsylvania was $2,550 per year, roughly 33% of the median household income at the time ($7,559). Bear in mind this was at a time when most households were still supported by a single income. By 2012, however, general tuition at the same school had risen to $42,734-over 86% of the median household income ($49,486) at a time when many households had become dual income. This means that the price of a piece of paper from university went from 33% of a single income to 86% of two incomes combined. This is unbelievable cost increase that illustrates a very clear divide that’s forming in the West. Yes -- inflation exists. It’s hidden. It’s long-term. But it exists. And over a period of years... even decades... it changes the very fundamentals of civilization. http://www.silverdoctors.com/new-study-the-middle-class-is-collapsing-in-the-united-states/
