Fake George Washington

Double1030332

Young George chopped down a cherry tree and confessed when confronted by his father because he could not tell a lie. His father, impressed with his son’s honesty, pardoned him.

That’s what we are told. Typical fake news. Or fake story in any case.

George’s father, Augustine, a wealthy owner of a tobacco plantation worked by slaves, belonged to the Virginia gentry. He didn’t really pardon his son, but went into shock on hearing that his first born was smitten with truthfulness and died shortly afterwards. Apparently Augustine never got around to asking his son why he chopped down the tree. The question never appears in the (fake) story.

George, who couldn’t have been more than 11-years-old at the time, would have told him, ”To get at the cherries.”

Influenced by his father, George went on to become the first president of the USA. He started the trend among presidents that we can still witness today; treat people like expendable laborers or soldiers, avoid the truth and be willing to chop down any growth to get at what you want.

Champagne and Crumbs

ManyCrumbs1030231

Champagne for a few, crumbs for the many.
Was this really the plan?

*

The business of weapons fueling wars
sung as necessity by keyboard whores.
Injustice dressed in many names
to parade, distract and entertain.
Truth wearing shackles, designer chains,
behind sparkling bars in a rusty game.
Beauty finds ways to light the cracks
to guide the steps of sharpened facts.
Life nourishes love’s basic power
uniting hearts to storm greed’s tower.

Dear Citiizen Deluded

Fobittio1_2357

We have all been deluded, duped, conned or fooled at times. All of us. Even the smartest among us. It’s embarrassing, not to mention painful when our gullibility or naivety gets slapped with reality.

There’s now over 3000 architects, engineers and other professionals who, by applying the laws of math and physics, prove that the World Trade Center buildings 1, 2 and 7 must have fallen as the result of demolition. The buildings didn’t fall due to fire, but were brought down by explosions.

Let’s forget these professionals and bring forth a child. The one within you. Look! Look with the eyes of a child and think of a metal paperclip! The child knows that steel doesn’t collapse. It twists, bends, curves and leans but it doesn’t collapse. You knew that when you were eight-years-old. Just as you know that a cloth doesn’t cut; wood doesn’t flow, water doesn’t burn and a raw egg doesn’t bounce. Look at the steel-structured buildings coming down! Are they falling; twisting, bending or curving? Or are they collapsing! What do you say, kid?

Dear Citizen Deluded, the longer you wait to listen to the child within you, the more embarrassing and painful it will be. And the longer you will remain a prisoner of a delusion, a refugee from the truth.

Saving Injustice

BarbedwireHeart5_3740

People who buy from businesses paying slave wages
support slave wages.
The ”savings” of low-priced products
come from the stolen labor of the workers.
The small change ”saved”
helps form the links
in the chains
binding the workers,
and the buyers as well,
into a system of exploitation.
The ”savings” help pay for injustice.
When the buyers realize
that they get what they pay for,
they complain
(whine mostly)
and point their finger in every direction
except the correct one,
the one directed
at themselves.

Common Dreams – Poison Nightmare

Klaique7_9804

Common Dreams is dealt with here as an example of the hidden forces—third parties, fifth columnists or simply wolves in sheeps’ clothing—supporting the suppression of the people in the name of progressiveness.

Common Dreams is a daily web-based news channel that ”has been providing breaking news & views for the progressive community since 1997.” It’s stated mission: ”To inform. To inspire. To ignite change for the common good.”

It ain’t necessarily so!
Common Dreams is, by its own definition, a failure. Change has not favored the common good. On the contrary, the past twenty years has seen the 1% and their billionaire commanders become steadily wealthier and more powerful while everyone else has experienced degradation on all levels, particularly increasing poverty, declining freedoms, spreading wars and a deteriorating environment. Common good should have fired Common Dreams years ago.

Common Dreams doesn’t deal with its failure, but implies with silence that negative change has occurred in spite of its efforts. The progressive community readily embraces this implication due to the views provided by Common Dreams which, as we shall see, functions as a branch of the prevailing order while pretending to be in opposition.

This is clearly evident in the recently published article titled, ”Need for Diplomacy More Clear Than Ever After North Korea Claims H-Bomb Test” (Sept. 3). It reads like a message from the Pentagon telling us that unpredictable North Korea threatens us with nuclear weapons. The ”progressive view” criticizes the president’s unhinged policy of fighting fire with fire and begs instead to promote diplomacy.

While the article quotes the president’s view, ”North Korea’s words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States”, it fails to mention how the US has continually provoked, threatened and intimidated N. Korea with military exercises and maneuvers in the air (B-52s and such), the waters around the little nation and military build up in S. Korea. Not to mention economic warfare euphemistically called sanctions.

N. Korea has never threatened anyone, has no bases or forces outside of its territory and has never been engaged in weapon conflict since its country was pounded to rubble by the US 70 years ago. The US on the other hand has military bases throughout the world and has and is bombing and killing people in multiple countries. N. Korea makes one, and only one threat, if attacked, it will retaliate with every means at its disposal. It meets threats and provocations by demonstrating some of its means.

Common Dream, for all its progressive talk, falls in line with msm to paint a picture of two equal forces where the the much much smaller and relatively weaker one (of the two equals) threatens the gigantic military monster. The little country half way around the world from the big one has the audacity of placing its country right next to the warships and under the air forces of the big country.

The ridiculous notion that the 98 kg mountain of muscle from the wrestling team feels threatened by the 67 kg nerd on the chess team finds eager believers when presented through the disinformative lens of the msm with the ”progressive” news alternatives adjusting the focus. This little-victim bad guy in confrontation with big aggressive savior plays like a broken sound loop on American psyop tunes. Haven’t the occupied, suppressed and persecuted Palestinians been portrayed as equal and threatening opponents to the poor (sob, sob) Zionists who have a right to defend themselves. Wasn’t the mighty US military machine forced to kill millions of Vietnamese to liberate them?

How, by the way, has Common Dreams dealt with Israel? Basically, it hasn’t except to copy official views. Not even when the South Africans declared that apartheid in Israel is worse than it ever was in their own country did Common Dreams seem to notice or think it worthy to include in their ”breaking news.” Last year when close to 3000 scientists and engineers proclaimed that the World Trade towers could not have fallen as they did because of fire, but must have been brought down by demolition, Common Dream didn’t seem to hear that explosive information. Perhaps the fact that the scientist employed the laws of physics and the rules of mathematics to prove their case discouraged Common Dream from mentioning it to their progressive readers. These same scientists plus others who have joined them will make a similar presentation on the 11th of this month. Would anyone care to wager if news from this (AE911Truth) event will reach subscribers through Common Dreams?

Besides the nonsense about ”talking truth to power” (See: Liberals on a Power Trip) Common Dreams constantly, usually in passing, refers to the USA as a democracy. True to its critical progressive image, the democracy wears a qualifying label such as weak, fragile, threatened, damaged, etc. but democracy it is. It is not! The USA is a Plutocracy, a rule by the richest. Everyone, well almost everyone, knows this. The phrase ”money talks, bullshit walks” is a truism among the citizens. The election circus is merely a reality show to prop up the rotting illusion of democracy. Common Dreams enthusiastically takes part in the circus as cheerleaders for progressive clowns. This ”democratic” circus results in 500 or so millionaires (1%ers) occupying the government (Congress) headed by a board of billionaires with a chief puppet at the chair. Democracy!

Like a true parasite Common Dreams not only saps the intellectual strength of its readers, it gets them to pay for it as well. Every month or so it spends about five days groveling loudly for donations. The cries get all the more desperate for each day of the campaign until the last one as on the past Friday,
”You care about independent, progressive media. You care about the truth.
That’s why we urgently need your help. There are only a few hours left to raise the remaining $8,000 we need.”

And then… that’s it. They publish again on Monday as though nothing happened, never mentioning the results of the campaign, never thanking the contributors. They do this every time. Isn’t this strange? Or is it just me? I guess I don’t understand the behavior of progressives igniting change for the common good.
