HAVE THE 9/11 CONSPIRACY THEORIES REACHED THEIR PEAK? It is difficult to define the exact moment when the popularity of the 9/11 conspiracy theory reached its peak, but it must have been in 2006. If we look at its decline, however, three dates stand out: July 22, 2004, the day when the 9/11 commission released its final report , February 3, 2005, when Popular Mechanic published a 5,500-word article dismantling the allegations of the movement, and 21 August 2008, date of disclosure by the National Institute of Standards and Technology of the last part of a study of sixteen million dollars devoted to the causes of the collapse of the twin towers and a third skyscraper from the World Trade Center which was not hit by a plane. It takes more than facts to put down a conspiracy theory, of course. In many ways, the fascination with these theories has more to do with the receptivity of the audience than with the precision of its details.After each of these publications, the popularity of the 9/11 conspiracy theory continued to oscillate between ebb and flow. Nevertheless, their response to the challenges presented by these reports shows how conspiracy theory proponents review their arguments and battlegrounds-or rather, do not change them-when confronted with new facts. [embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjMLkxaif44[/embedyt] A conspiracy plot? The article in Popular Mechanics may never have been published without a $ 3 million national advertising campaign commissioned by an eccentric millionaire to promote a self-published book called Painful Questions. The advertisement postulated that the World Trade Center had been destroyed by a controlled demolition, that no plane had ever touched the Pentagon, and raised a number of questions: the heat from the fires in the twin towers was Is it high enough to cause them to collapse? The cavity in the Pentagon big enough to fit an airliner? The editor of Popular Mechanics says that when he saw the ad, he said: “As Popular Mechanics, we’ve been writing for a hundred years about what happens when planes crash on the ground, or how we build skyscrapers. So, let’s answer those questions. ” The magazine selects the most interesting and serious conspiracy theories and replies through interviews with over seventy experts from aviation, engineering and the military. The article states that all the so-called scientific evidence of government involvement in 9/11 is based on botched research and, to a large extent, manipulated and fallacious reasoning. The article remains the most-read report ever published in the magazine, with more than 7.5 million hits. “We were the first to take the assertions of conspiracy theories seriously, and to address them very directly,” said Meigs. “The reaction was so overwhelming and scary that it was a great lesson about how these groups work and think.” Among the answers was an article by anti-Zionist conspiracy Christopher Bollyn, who claimed to have discovered why the engineering magazine appeared for a hundred years was involved in a government plot to stifle the crime of the century: a young researcher on the team The newspaper, Benjamin Chertoff, was a cousin of Michael Chertoff, the Secretary of National Security at the time, and the magazine was looking through its article to whitewash the perpetrators of this criminal plot. It did not matter that Chertoff was not in post during the preparation of the article, or that Benjamin Chertoff had never met the man whom he admits to be, possibly a distant cousin. For conspiracy, the mere mention of this link was enough to pass the article to the trap. “It was interesting. A bit scary for Ben, I think, but also pretty comical, “says Meigs.”You see the picture: let’s say someone at Slate is a relative of Dick Cheney, and he shoots” Hey, I need a hand: we’ll all get to work to smother the mass murder on most important of American history. You follow me?” The article in Popular Mechanics expanded with interviews with more than 300 sources and eyewitnesses and became a book, ‘Debunking 9/11 Myths.‘ David Ray Griffin responds in 2007 with his own book, Debunking 9/11 Debunking, in which he reiterates theories that he believes have not been refuted adequately, says that Popular Mechanics has refuted only nonsense, and reiterates the charge of attempting to camouflage Chertoff. It is interesting to return to Griffin’s response, which illustrates a typical reaction of conspiracy theorists to refutations. 19 minutes or 1 hour 19 minutes? One of the angles on which the theory is based is that the American hunt was quite capable of intercepting any of the four hijacked planes on 9/11 and avoiding attacks. The article in Popular Mechanics notes that in the ten years prior to September 11, there was only one intercept by Norad of a civilian aircraft in North America: the Learjet of the golfer Payne Stewart. It took an hour and 19 minutes to intercept him, before he finally crashed. Based on the first reports, which misinterpreted the official crash report, the conspirators presented the Stewart case as proof that Norad normally needed only 19 minutes to intercept a civilian aircraft. “It’s a much debated issue,” Griffin told me. It seems that someone has fiddled with the truth here. I do not know what happened, but I read enough about it to know it’s not true that it took so long. ” And the other material evidence that dismisses the interception theory, including the NORAD recordings, which painfully and painfully detail the chaos and confusion that prevailed in American air defenses that morning? Griffin’s answer: The tapes were probably manipulated using morphing techniques to counter the voices of government officials and give the illusion of chaos staged, according to a scenario set by the government. It is no wonder, he says, that after 9/11 the historical documents are revised to fit the official version. “For its followers, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy,” says Meigs. “As such, it is immune to any possibility of rebuttal, much as if you were talking to the most obtuse Marxist or extremist fundamentalist creationist. They will have an answer that looks like it’s coming down from the sky to any argument you can make. “The other article of faith of the conspiracy theorists is that it was not necessary that the conspiracy was very large. In Crossing the Rubicon, Michael Rupert writes that it was not necessary to orchestrate on September 11 more than twenty people with a complete anticipatory knowledge of the attacks, all “held in silence by draconian oaths”. If we count all the people and institutions accused of having been involved in the conspiracy, the number is growing out of control. It should include the CIA, the Department of Justice, the FAA, Norad, American and United Airlines, Fema, Popular Mechanics and other media outlets, local law enforcement agencies and the United States. State in Pennsylvania, Virginia and New York, the National Institute of Standards and Technology and finally-and perhaps above all, the 9/11 commission. A band that runs in a loop Of the so-called conspirators of this plot, few play a role as prominent as Philip Zelikow, the executive director of the 9/11 commission. University and career diplomat, his resignation was required in 2004 by representatives of families of 9/11 because of a presumed conflict of interest, because of his role on the transition team of George W. Bush. Zelikow recused himself from all aspects of the investigation relating to the period of his participation in the transition team. For the conspirators, it was enough to discredit the entire report of the commission. “I play a prominent role in their demonology, but people themselves do not feel like crazy,” says Zelikow. They are often people who in many ways seem very sincere, caring, and patient. They just have an obsession. ” The obsessive nature of conspiracy makes it very difficult to discuss or debate with the most extreme followers. “They do not really listen to you,” Zelikow said. You say something and opposite, the band is running in a loop. ” In 2007, a conspirator confronted Zelikow in public with the “revelation” that many of the hijackers were still alive. Zelikow replied that the 9/11 Commission had verified these allegations without being able to corroborate them, but that they had not been able to include in the final version of the report each of the conspiracy theories that had been refuted. The answer of his interlocutor was to repeat his accusation. Another conspiracy tactic is to focus on minor points of disagreement and exaggerate the importance of contradictions that are often easy to justify in overwhelming pieces of evidence , such as phone calls made by victims of embezzlement to their families, where they describe them. Griffin (The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions) book writer, for example, states that the phone calls, the transcripts of which were made public as part of the 9/11 Commission’s investigation, were counterfeited using “sound morphing” techniques at the same time. Abuse members of families. Nevertheless, some conspiracy theorists have abandoned some of their most difficult allegations, such as the idea that no airliner struck the Pentagon. “They focus on what’s going on around the World Trade Center, where they cling to some of these engineering hypotheses today refuted with some care,” says Zelikow. Conspirators The most effective provider of these assumptions is Richard Gage, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. In March 2006, Gage heard Griffin say on the radio that some firefighters were providing evidence of controlled explosions at the World Trade Center. Gage was stunned. “I could not even walk to the office. I had to park, “he says. The next day, Gage tries to attend a Griffin conference in Oakland. But the room, planned for 600 people, is full, and he must be content with a retransmission via the Internet. A few weeks later, he created a PowerPoint presentation on this theory and started preaching to his coworkers. Two months later, he launched Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and soon became a full-time campaigner, spreading the message that the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s investigation into the World Trade Center was a deception, and that an “independent” investigation was necessary. The petition he launched today bears the signature of 1,500 architects and engineers graduates or approved and is considered one of the most convincing leaders of the movement. Like Griffin, Gage says the NIST’s three-year, $ 16-million survey by almost 100 NIST investigators and staff and independent experts and consultants is part of of a criminal enterprise of concealment. “We are calling for a federal grand jury investigation of the chief investigator and his first deputy,” says Gage. Anyone who has put his name on these reports must be investigated. ” Of dozens of items peer reviewed were written, confirming all the official account, but they are spread in the same way. Gage and Griffin refer to the movement’s own peer-reviewed article published by former BYU professor Steven Jones and Danish scientist Niels Harrit. “Debating the speed of walking hobbits” Knowing that traditional controlled demolitions would have been audible throughout lower Manhattan if they had actually taken place on September 11, the conspirators were forced to find in support of their central thesis a rather obscure scientific explanation: the demolitions were carried out using an incendiary compound called nano-thermite. Jones and Harrit argue in their article that they have found traces of thermitic reactions in dust particles found in the World Trade Center. For Griffin and Gage, the work of the movement has been validated following the traditional method, but the peer review process of the article is suspect (the editor of the newspaper resigned due to the publication of the article without his permission, for example, and one of the peers who revised the article is a 9/11 conspirator who speculated that the passengers of the four flights are in fact still alive, and live on the accounts money in Swiss). “Since they cannot attack the scientific evidence, they are attacking the peer review process,” says Gage. So that they attack the scientific demonstrations. “Popular Mechanics and others took care of the scientific aspect. At some point, however, discussing science, theory, and ideas is a futile exercise, since the assumptions of conspiracy theorists are not rooted in any consideration of reality in the broad sense. “It may sound bad,” says Erik Sofge, one of the contributors to the Popular Mechanics article and casual contributor to Slate.com. “But, in fact, it’s like debating the speed of hobbits.” Editor’s Notes; There is a Youtube video where consistently timed explosive sounds were taking place. There is also an abundance of video and audio of firefighters describing explosions. Wouldn’t they know? I don’t know if the videos are still there, several videos have been pulled by YouTube. But, the more compelling question is ‘why would all these architects and engineers risk their jobs and reputations? Especially Steven Jones-the man has a stellar career and educational experiences behind him. But, if you’ve got a plane with autopilot and a building of the same size and structure as the two towers, just repeat the experiment and let’s see what happens.
Introduction W. Cleon Skousen’s ” The 5000 Year Leap” is a wonderful book that provides 28 principles related to the rights,freedoms and responsibilities of the individual and that individual’s government as expounded by our ( American) Founding Fathers. This treatise will explore Principle 9 ( Skousen, W. Cleon. ” The 5000 Year Leap,” pp. 131- 139). The Principle under discussion The Ninth Principle explores the safeguarding of our rights. God has revealed to us certain principles of Law through the agency of the Ten Commandments ( pp.131-2). In a nutshell, these commandments include serving and worshipping God alone, honoring our neighbor, respecting our neighbors’ situation, honoring our parents and setting aside a day of rest, worship and recommitment to the observance of the Divine Law ( pp. 132-33). Our rights and responsibilities The rights we enjoy are safeguarded by the duties that God has enjoined on each one of us to follow, both public duties and private ones. Public duties are enforceable by the State and the States’ law enforcement. When these duties are ignored, these entities are empowered to impose penalties on the transgressor to both deter future transgressions and to discourage the general public from ignoring their own responsibilities ( 133-4). Private duties are ” principles of private morality” that exist between an individual and his or her Creator. They would bolster and encourage their performance of their public duties and yet only the individual may meet those duties through self- discipline ( 133). Anglo- Saxon and Israelite precedents The Israelites and the Anglo- Saxons both personalized public transgressions through the possibility of repayment ( the Anglo- Saxons would have called this ” wergild,” or financial compensation for the harm done by one person to another). For the Anglo- Saxons, a fixed financial penalty would be incurred for an injury or death. The Israelites would impose repayment in kind for financial loss ( deliberate murder would be punished in Israel by execution of the offender). The Israelites and Anglo- Saxons both held God’s Law to be immutable. Any kinds of laws that they would pass would be in accordance either with the ancient body of ancestral laws ( also held as unchangeable) or the Law as revealed in the Ten Commandments. Reparations, of course, were a legal and private matter between the offended, the offender and law- enforcement. Reparations by the state ( tax- payers paying compensation for the crimes of others) would be an encouragement rather than a deterrence to crime, as a thief could blithely tell his or her target that the government would restore the stolen property in terms of cash value anyway ( 136-37). These are basic, simple Laws of Nature and Nature’s God that are rewarded in their simple observance. All laws that are valid are laws that are built upon the basic cornerstones of revealed Law and reason. When people look to their own duties, they find their rights being reinforced as well as protected through the observance of those duties. Safeguards for individual freedoms On the final page of this particular chapter, we see how the State can abuse the freedom of the individual by passing oppressive laws to enrich the few and to keep the many in want. Our Founding Fathers had the wisdom to see that sovereign authority needed to be taken out of the hands of the oligarchs and into the hands of the people. Only then are we assured that our ancient rights would be protected by those who could easily be in be a position to abuse their power ( 138). We surely do have rights that are tempered by responsibilities to ourselves, our neighbors and our God. We must not have an unbalanced view that will put rights over responsibilities ( that leads to a breakdown in social institutions and restraints on unlawful behavior), or responsibilities over rights ( that will lead to State tyranny and public persecution). Our view ought to be a balanced one that sees our rights and responsibilities supporting each other. In this way, perhaps we can return to working on realizing our Founders’ vision of this land as a ” city on a hill” and a ” light to the nations.”
You say you aren’t going to get mad reading this. Since when has the whole dialogue about “White Supremacists” and Fascists been so popular in the media?
When it comes to the criminal justice system in this country, I think we can all agree that there is a big problem. Not only are the jails and prisons filled to the brim with “criminals”, but there is also a large disconnect between crimes that get committed, the people who get caught, and the people who are set free. At the end of the day, the criminal justice system in this country is hard to understand and truly define. Crime in this country has gotten out of control, but in a roundabout, circular type of way. There are countless citizens running around shooting people in schools, at concerts, and in other public, seemingly safe, places. Then, there are people who are at the top, like business owners and CEOs of large companies who are engaging in criminal acts such as tax evasion, insider trading, and more. Lastly, there are street criminals that are engaging in drug dealing, burglary, theft, murder, rape, etc. At the end of the day, it is confusing to define what a crime in this country actually is, and why there are certain criminals who get put in jail, and others who are set free. LAWS This country is made up of many laws. Some of these laws work and some of them don’t. And, while some of these laws might not seem to make sense, there is no doubt that they are enforced and must be followed. Day in and day out, laws are constantly being enforced upon the citizens in this country by police officers. And, the purpose of these laws are to keep the citizens in this country in line, and to also, ensure a safe and secure place for us all to live in together. But, if that is true, then why are there still so many crimes being committed today? Why, with all these laws we have in our country, are there are so many heinous crimes that involve violence and hatred still occurring? Crimes such as school shootings, murder, and child abuse. Are these laws that we have today even doing us any good? It is true that many of the laws in this country were put into place for a reason. There are many laws in place that do make this country better, and there to stop people from doing things that they should not be doing. But on the other hand, there are also many laws in this country that are not rooted in any type of reality, and are not important in any sense of the word. Who Created The Laws You might ask yourself, who even created these laws that we live under today? And the truth is that some of the laws in this country were put in place by lawmakers who were attempting to make positive change. The problem is that sometimes, the intended change they were attempting to make never occurred, but the laws still stayed in tact. In a sense, a lot of the laws that we have today are not relevant to the society that we live in. And many of the laws that we have today don’t even begin to touch upon the real and actual problems that we all face on a day to day basis. Now, I am not here to advocate for more laws, but I am here to tell you that many of the laws that we all follow are not relevant to our daily lives, and that is where the problems really start to creep in. For instance, a few years ago, it was illegal to buy, sell, or use marijuana. There were cases where people were caught using marijuana by the police, and they were put in jail for years. There have also been many cases of people buying marijuana and being charged and put in jail. Now, if you are in favor of marijuana legalization or not, that is not the point here. The point is that marijuana is now legal in the state of California. That means that everyone who was previously put in jail for marijuana use is now in jail for a reason that is invalid. Did the people who are in jail for marijuana possession or use actually commit a crime if there is no law pertaining to the “crime” they committed? There is truly a disconnect between laws and our reality. RIGHT & WRONG You might want to ask, why would a law ever be put into place that would later be changed or altered? And, if laws are based on right and wrong and what is just and unjust, then why would a law ever change? Here’s an example of what I am referring to, if it is wrong to torture a child today, then why would it be okay to torture a child tomorrow, and vice versa? Alas, there is a reasoning behind all of this, and it is not as fair in any sense. The laws change for two reasons. The first reason is based on the lawmakers themselves. Based on what the lawmakers of the current time want and prefer, the laws will reflect those notions. This preference for certain laws over others also pertains to what politicians want and what big business owners want. Each of these group of people determine the laws for that period of time. Another reason why laws change is because laws are created and made based on what makes money and a bigger profit. In the case of marijuana legalization, there was no way to tax marijuana in the past, which is why it was illegal. Now, there are ways to tax marijuana and sell it in the marketplace, which is why you will now be seeing more and more states legalize marijuana. It’s really just as simple and clear cut as that. The Damage Of The Criminal Justice System Let’s change gears and discuss the mental and emotional damage of the criminal justice system. Aside from the fact that the entire system is unfair in a lot of ways, there is another side of the coin that many people fail to recognize, and that pertains to what happens to the people who have been incarcerated and then get out. Now, this is a very important topic to think about because it affects every single one of us. With the criminal justice system working the way that it does today, it seems that more and more people are being put in jail or prison. What this means is that one day, these people will get out and be let out on the streets. Now, will these people be able to get jobs after they have been set free? And, how mentally stable are these people once they get out of jail or prison? You must remember that many of these people do not have families waiting for them once they get out, or a cushy job and warm home to go to. A lot of these people have no choice but to go straight to the streets once they are set free. They will then have to find a place to live, a job, and a support system along the way. It’s truly a struggle, to say the least. It is said that the recidivism rate is extremely high in this country. The recidivism rate is the rate in which newly released prisoners go back to jail or prison. In all actuality, it’s no wonder that this rate is so high in this country, how is anyone supposed to get back on their feet with nothing to their name, and not even a place to call home? Something needs to change, and it needs to change fast. FALSELY CONVICTED There are also other factors to take into consideration within the criminal justice system, and one of these factors include people being put in jail under false pretenses, as well as people running free that committed serious crimes. The truth is that there is no question that certain juries might not convict the right person. And, if someone has enough money, they can hire a great lawyer and get a much lighter sentence than someone who is only able to afford a public defender. So, you might want to ask yourself, if someone cannot afford an amazing lawyer, should they be punished? If you think about that question for longer than two seconds, the answer is no, everyone should be treated the same, but that is unfortunately not the case with the justice system in this country. Those who are able to hire great lawyers get less time, and those who are able to come to court in a nice suit get less time, etc. The unfair discrepancies based on income and wealth go hand in hand. THE GLORIFICATION OF CRIME There are some people who believe the reason we have so many criminals in jail and prison at the moment is because of the glorified criminal lifestyle in this country. Everywhere you look these days, all you see is people breaking the law and being glorified for it. Whether you watch a movie, a television show, go on the internet, check social media, or read the newspaper, it seems that crime is being glorified. While this might not seem completely obvious to the naked eye, it is a fact, and it happens every single day. Take music videos for instance, the majority of music videos, especially pop, rap, and rock music videos completely and wholeheartedly glorify crime. Some of the crimes that these music videos glorify include fighting, drugs, underage drinking, and even rape and prostitution. A lot of these music videos make illegal activities look fun, interesting, and cool. And in a way, it’s no wonder why so many young people are committing crimes, they are just doing what they see on their screens. Crimes Being Shown On Television And In Movies Crimes being shown and glorified is true across the board. How many modern top grossing movies don’t have any violence in them? The answer is, not many. And if you don’t think that fighting glorifies crime, you are wrong. Fighting is not only illegal, but is damaging to society in a lot of ways. Fighting ruins relationships between people and breeds negativity. Moreover, there are countless highly-rated television shows focusing on murder and insanity, such as the popular television show Dexter. You also have extremely well-acclaimed shows such as Game Of Thrones constantly showing fighting, violence, murder, and even incest. THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM IS BROKEN When all is said and done, yes, the criminal justice system in this country is broken. There are more people in jail and in prison now than there ever were before. Not only are there people committing horrible crimes, but there are also people being released from jail and not having anywhere to go. There are laws being enforced that are not relevant to the life in which we live today, as well as dangerous criminals running free, because they have the money and resources to do so. The sad fact is that there is not much that we can do except stay especially vigilant, aware, and educated, as well as follow the laws that have been set forth, no matter how ridiculous they may seem. The more that we educate ourselves and our children to what is really going on in this country, the better off we will all be.
State of the Union much more entertaining than Obama could hope for. They sat United in their state of dis-Unity. Given their orders by the billionaires who run the UN, (the ones Forbes doesn’t even publish), they get ready to jump on the immigration issue and wail against the truth. State of Dis-Union More, more, more,..(how d’ya like it? How d’ya like it?) Pete and Re-Pete got in the boat. Haven’t seen this before . Haven’t heard it either. These are the people who don’t think you mind living on a spindle. Why shouldn’t they? What does it take to get you mad? Uh, oh. Here come the feminists, the dreamers and the race-baiting bitches and bastards. Shouldn’t a said nuthin’. Well, once again, another State of the Union with the doggies on display, with the anecdotal point makers, eggcederee, eggcedere. This time, the Democrats play the side that doesn’t cheer, wants no part of the message, wants to show the sullen faces. And of course, the rhetoric about walls and immigration was red meat for the left. Racist, racism, race. The Democrats are the bigger players for our corporate masters. They’ll play out this race lie for all it’s worth. And, what is it worth? Murder and mayhem. An infrastructure that has been stretched for decades, schools and hospitals that take in fee-free folks, obliterating what an emergency room is, and totally changing the dynamics of schools. We are racist, though the population has doubled with immigrants in a few short decades. The US takes in 14X more people than the next country, (Canada). If they were the real humanitarians they professed, they would try to stem the flow of refugees where they originate. Nooooo. The war budget says no. The corporations and banks say no. They would try to institute demilitarized zones in the countries we’re always involved in, for whatever reason, oh yah, terrorists. So, they bring them here? Then, they try to demonize the people who worry about the great European cultures that built this country?. (Don’t say anything or you’re a racist.) They quietly just drop a lot of these people in places with no vote, no discussion, no media attention. This is all their doing. They are committing a silent genocide against European cultures. We Europeans fight for America, that’s why we defend the flag over some extremely questionable moral dilemma. We fight the real enemy; this fraudulent group of people called the Federal government. That’s why they demonize us every way they can. And so, the next day, the NYT, Washington Post, Buzzfeed, Slate, Root, Globe, CNN, MSNBC, etc.,etc. Referred to Trumps’ crowd as the ‘alt-right’ and ‘white supremacist.’ One would like to ask if they know what ‘supremacist’ means. Yes, despite what we see day after day after day in our cities, they see no crime. We’re all seeing things. We are. We’re seeing facts. These rags don’t know the difference, so we’ll say opinions. We’ll say the people keeping the numbers are just stating opinions. Oh, but what if it’s you’re rag that’s saying it? Well, here’s a few of the lesser known, the defenders of the faith, who aren’t ‘White Supremacists,’ they are Americans, founded on American principles, allowing immigration, but not to the point it disturbs those principles, or the security of the nation as a whole: Opine One/ Opine Two ..another on cities Opine Three Opine Four Opine Five Opine Six Opine Seven Opine Eight Opine Nine Opine Ten Opine Ten Opine Eleven Opine Twelve Opine Thirteen Opine Fourteen Opine Fifteen Opine Sixteen Opine Seventeen Opine Eighteen Opine Nineteen How far will these murdering corporate communists go? They’ll go all the way unless you boycott them, speak up and create the whale. Defy them at every corner. Consolidate and band together as Americans. ‘God Bless the United States of America?’ Yes, but their god is Satan. Over and out.
Boston Police Department is racist! Bazinga! WCVB is on the story, always shouting racism, never doing their homework. The Boston Police are racist. Channel 5 wants to make sure more officers are targeted for murder. There’s always one of these stories, yet there are several others that are never told and, because they want the majority “white” audience to feel like they are racist. Do you personally feel racist? Are you responsible for slavery? Crime? Who hires who? The law? Well! I think it’s out of most of our hands. The ones pointing the finger are the real problem, aren’t they? No, because they have an abundant staff of black people? Well, you’ve been tricked, over and over. You’ve been played, sukkah. You a fool-yes, you are, if you believe what they’re telling you, and good people, innocent people, are getting hurt and becoming victims. It’s nice to be young and idealistic. Let’s just make sure the cause is right-the cause is just. But, I’m a conspiracy nut, so what do I know? Well, I can show the proof over and over. It just seems the other side doesn’t even need it. They get to toss it out on accusations alone. Why would they do that? Isn’t the press and the public trust for ‘innocent until proven guilty?’ They used to be. They used to tell two sides. That was before they became big conglomerates. So, you’re getting your news from elitists, (and they pay those monkeys on the screen big bucks to tell those lies, don’t they Maria?), and you trust it? I remember seeing black BPD officers in the 60’s. They were welcomed by the public. They were trusted. They were respected. So, what’s going on? Why the lies? Your inaction is costing you and it is costing you big time. I think you had better wake up. Now, let’s get to the bogus stories: https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.documentcloud.org/documents/2158964/full-boston-police-analysis-on-race-and-ethnicity.pdf It’s “very disturbing,” they say again and again. It’s racial profiling they say, again and again. What is very disturbing to me is that they are making claims and not doing their homework. This isn’t a one-off kind of thing. They do it repeatedly, every time they can. They repeat every day, all day, for weeks. They want to make sure you know that YOU ARE RACIST. Now, there’s enough news out there, God knows, you don’t have to repeat, repeat, repeat. But, the bigger these media empires get, (and they have gotten quite big), they have an agenda. But, why? Why are they pushing these sorts of things? Isn’t it quite obvious that they are not stopping racism, they are creating it? Creating it! And the ACLU loves it, and the NAACP loves it. There’s bound to be some money coming into their coffers now, isn’t there? You see, they have nice buildings and offices in every major city, and how do you think they maintain them? What is also disturbing is the FBI now has a system for accounting for hate crimes and crimes by race. Basically, what it does, it re-defines crimes so some lame ones are more important than serious ones and vice versa. It’s a system of control. I said, it’s a system of control. I said, it’s a system of control. You getting it autotrons? I said, it’s a system of control. It’s, (how do I put it?), a system of creating factual lies. Is that sinister? Should any lefty want that? Because, I’ll tell you where it stops; it is effectively, a manufactured propaganda system. We used to feel sorry for the Russian people because of that. I know, I’m a conspiracy nut. But, tell me, why do those huge banking empires have a meeting with politicians from all over the globe every year? Is that for their health? Then, there are the others they have with wealthy corporate interests, every year, (ALEC and the Kochs). They are on our dime, why are we allowing it? They don’t care! What gives them the power to do it? You don’t seem to care either! They have a plan, idiots. They are conspiring, idiots, you don’t have to reach here, do you? “Gee, two or more people get together and concoct a plan, doesn’t happen. You’re a conspiracy nut.”–George Carlin. I would say wake up. They lie. Their lies are having consequences. There are no conspiracies, just truths you don’t know yet because they are disguised by lies. It’s either that or it’s a sin of omission. I love the media, for that, because they prove what I say over and over. Nice! Let us get to those all-important bought-and-paid-for statistics, they may tell the truth, but, the truth just doesn’t get told about them. Well, the above mentioned news station likes to start off with “Very disturbing?” They should have analyzed the analysis, that’s what a good reporter would do. The initial part of it tells how they came up with subjects and time frame, (10 years ago.). Twenty-six percent never filled out reports so they excluded them and that is all we know about them, and certainly not their race. It is the strangest piece of analysis I ever saw because it looks intentionally quizzical. It makes a strong statement. Then, they step it back. Step it back. There several places the report turns itself into a sham, no good. Does WCVB like the race issue? Over and over and over, they have stories about race but never deliver the proof, never tell both sides, and more importantly, never tell the outcome when the outcome isn’t to their liking, (the more than not hoaxes), and never reveal the race of the perps unless it’s obvious or they are white. Does that sound racist? I’m just asking because I would bet my bottom dollar it is. You can’t beat racism with more racism. But, organizations like the Black Congressional Congress, the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, National Association of Black Journalists, (on and on), think that you can. Haven’t seen it. Haven’t seen it once in my lifetime. You? So, it’s only natural to believe something is up with this, but if you say so, you must be a racist. It’s a real bad circle jerk. http://www.wcvb.com/article/racial-slurs-found-in-two-incidents-at-needham-high-school/14108070 http://www.wcvb.com/article/bc-students-staff-march-to-condemn-racism/13060112 http://www.wcvb.com/article/racist-social-media-posts-spur-probe-at-weston-high-school/13267799 http://www.wcvb.com/article/college-ends-season-for-soccer-team-over-offensive-and-racist-costume/13145463 What is racist and offensive is relative, unless you care to make an issue of it. Then I can show you Black Lives Matter, several on-line blogs, cited by the MSM over and over, and several other “black,” no other, just “black” organizations making several and doing several offensive acts of racism towards white people. But, it makes no sense. It is as if only “white people” are racist, and it’s mostly against “black people.” Yes, let us reason: If we’re so racist, why are we just seeing all these stories now? Why can’t we go back 10 or 20 or 30 years and see the same re-occurring stories? If Flint, Michigan is only half-black, isn’t racist towards the non-black citizens to say bad water is systemic racism against black people? http://www.wcvb.com/article/massachusetts-official-to-kneeling-patriots-dance-monkey-dance/12467436 How much does it pay, WCVB? I’ll say something racist, but, I mean, I need real good money. http://www.wcvb.com/article/racist-hate-filled-videos-prompt-investigation-at-brookline-school/13981558 Perhaps this is a legitimate story. I just doubt it because we only got one side of it and all the last ones “hoaxes.” http://www.wcvb.com/article/school-racial-slurs-sexual-comments-made-towards-student-mother/13623360 Sins of omission: This was a rap song being sung by two students, who were accused of racism because the song had the ‘n’ word in it by two black students. Get me in the news, mommy, get me in the news. Who made the song commercial and put it out for sale? Are they racist too? I’m not getting this. The accusations about phone calls was ‘a’ phone call. Naturally, the other side of the story is blatantly missing, and it appears to be another scapegoat being flayed for the agenda. Where is WCVB when the Black Congressional Congress is calling republicans ‘Pink Elephant?’ The one-way, half a news story falls so far short of journalistic integrity, it stinks to high heaven. But! If you don’t mind lying to millions of people, get right in front of that camera! Now, I could have gone to CBS, (also bogus), or NBC, (incredibly bogus), but then, I wouldn’t be doing my research. Did you ever hear that word over at your station, Ed, Maria, whoever? Research? Really? But, let’s get to that disturbing report: The analysis begins by telling us how they came to use the numbers and how the analysts used it to arrive at their conclusion(s). Out of the starting gate, they seem to suggest they’ve got some good evidence. Later, they don’t really seem to suggest it at all. Reported in late 2017, the data is already 7+ years old, claiming that there is no good data since. Still not having enough data for an annual view, they use 3 years of data (?)(p.2) The data they used was based on FIO, (frisk and investigate). 75% of the reports had no data whatsoever, so they didn’t use them. 75%! (p.3) 26% of the FIO officers filled out no report. (p. 3) Roughly 4% of the officers doing FIO work rendered nearly half the reports! (p. 3) The vast bulk of reports were filed by white officers (ii). The report uses hypotheticals as to the nature of Boston neighborhoods and crime. (p.27) Nearly half of the reports, (43.8%), were filed on known gang members and felons by a relative few officers, (4%). The analysts state they have to take a disparate approach to the data by using some far-out “probability models.” (pp. 8-19) The analysts focus on some statistics that really don’t prove to be helpful one way or the other by identifying officers’ age, rank, and employment status, detective or not, street beat or gang squad. The use of these probabilities do not seem clear at all. The report cites very little or no reports filed by black officers (?). (p.16) One gang member could represent up to 249 investigations! (p.5) White officers range very close to 3X the number of black officers yet the analysis does a very poor job of pointing that out, and do not account for it in the numbers at all. (p.6). White officers performed drastically more FIOs than other minority officers. They also searched more white suspects than minority officers. 135% more, really blowing away the question of bias (p.21) And, finally, the last paragraph of the report says it all: “Unfortunately, the research cannot determine whether the identified patterns were generated by bias or other processes of racial discrimination in BPD FIO practices. The data do not unravel the individual decision-making process of BPD officers who are engaged in FIO encounters, we can only observe differences that require more extensive and different types of study. Further research is necessary to understand the factors and processes that influence the observed disparities.” Observed disparities? Really? The data is bogus and the roundabout analysis of the Rutgers geniuses tell us a whole lot of nothing. I could keep on adding to this, I think the disparity itself comes from the black officers, not the white officers, since we know already know that black juries will not convict black defendants. Is that an inconvenient truth? For WCVB it is. A hundred-to-one , I could come up with data such as this to the reverse. Well, Maria, NAACP and ACLU, one thinks you need to restate your assertions. But, knowing how corrupt the system is, who can tell how many unfair practices have been put in place because of bogus data? But, since ‘let me make this clear,’ (another well-used phrase this year), with the current climate, if you aren’t telling the truth about racism, you are adding to it. You are the problem. You are the racist.
November 20, 2017 Everything is volatile. Everything is subject to change. But does it ever seem the changes are good? liable to change rapidly and unpredictably, especially for the worse. “the political situation was becoming more volatile” synonyms: tense, strained, fraught, uneasy, uncomfortable, charged, explosive, inflammatory, turbulent; How much can the most alert person take? Case in point: My own following of the stock market. Even with the data in front of my face, for the most part, I don’t even see it. I have been following certain stocks since the beginning of the year but, now I’m lucky if I have a handle on half of them. Along the way, I swapped a few out for others, but forgot to check their price at that point. Now, as we get near the end of the year, I’m missing the original price on a lot of them, (probably the critical ones). They were probably big losers. The ones I have left are half and half. Big winners, big losers. This is the stock market for people who assume that companies grow at a steady pace. Are they still around? I’ll research that later. So, it’s a draw. In this crazy world, I cannot afford a draw. Can you afford a draw? What is the solution in this world for being alert 24/7 for the things we need to be alert 24/7 for? My belief is the solution is 1 or 2 more yous to keep track of the stuff you can’t keep in mind all the time. What happened here? I don’t know, but maybe I can find the data somewhere in my huge mess of data. Why is it high tech has made things more volatile and less beneficial? Now! How about everything else? How about the account updates I get every week from multiple websites, all in nice small print? Updates to mortgages and insurance and utility bills, with eye-straining confused language? How about all the appointments that come and go and get rescheduled? How about the ones that change their rules, whatever, and then your account gets shut down or you get charged for things you didn’t want? Hey, you got that project done yet? Your boss wants to know. How about all the outside things you must do on doctor’s orders? Don’t forget to brush your teeth. The trash is full again. You gonna make that poor dog cross her legs all day? The days of the corporation have made it much more impersonal and time-consuming; Press ‘1’ if you would like to dance, press ‘2’ to just stand there, there are several callers ahead of you even though we have workers from all over the world. How about the missed communications while you were waiting for an operator? Oh, geesh! Another traffic jam! What happened to work-at-home? Did you get that inspection yet? You may get a fine. Don’t forget the mail, and pick up some more bread. You still have to get the wash done, but the washer is broke. By now, you know you must be superhuman in terms of alertness. But, that’s not enough because, even if you are very alert and cross all the t’s, you will run in to many, many others who make mistakes for which you have to bite the bullet or spend an incredible amount of precious time trying to correct. It’s either one of two things; 1) The biggy big management people and corporate heads are more than ignorant of the ‘little people’ in this matter. or… 2) They do know and that’s part of the plan. Think about it slave. Think about it. You may find some time out there in the interstate parking lot. How is it that companies talk about making life easier and instead, it continually gets more confusing and complex? Two hundred year-old laws are still on the books. We always conjure up the past in order to repeat the worst of it. Think slave. Think. It is possible to get beyond this insanity. All you have to do is make peace with the people next to you. When I look a lot at the division on YouTube and the local news continuing to drudge up the worst to keep the corruption game going, it is obvious that may be really hard. But, if you really are modern-if you really want change-why are you carrying signs bought for you by the same-said people and creating division? Think about it slave. You hate to think this; ‘I should drop the sign and join the other side.’ But, right now, it’s the best remedy. You can always address the other concerns later. But, maybe you wouldn’t have to.. Think about it.
Chaos rules the world. It is not good. Chaos is a benefit to some. Not us. Make a decision in your own mind to find common ground with everyone who is different on most things. Find it with your enemies. Just find it. Let me see. How do we get from chaos to reason? I’m not going to break any IQ scales with this, but I believe we all have to start getting along. How can it not be easy to see this? Also, how can it not be easy, and I mean, real easy, to see that that’s exactly what the powers that be don’t want. If you can’t see, drop a comment below and I’ll help you. Go look at some news casts back in the 80’s, 90’s, early 2000’s. Was there any daily talk about the white supremacists? black supremacists? refugees and border people, even? There was some. I mean, there was SOME. It wasn’t a daily thing like it is now. Then we elected a black guy as president and things went whoosh. Think about it. Think about every left candidate who’s going to stop raising ire in the Mid East. All of them. How many actually do it? None of them. For the younger people, who I would want a better life for, all colors, races, creeds, etc., you can go along with these people who are spinning your wheels. I can tell you now, there’s a scratch in the record and no one is willing to move the needle. This is a cat door. Only you can make it the doors to the Cathedral. There are no ideological hard lines here. There is the truth. What do the courageous do? They seek it no matter what side or to whose benefit. That’s virtue. That’s sacrifice. That is what would not be easy for anyone. Only 2 ways to go. Over and out.
“Virtue Signaling,” Just Another Part Of A Larger Problem. “You’re talking a lot but, you’re not saying anything.” – (Psycho Killer, Talking Heads, 77). “Why don’t they do what they say? Say what you mean. One Thing Leads To Another.” – (One Thing Leads To Another, The Fixx, Reach The Beach, 1983) “Subtle innuendos follow, must be something inside.” – (Adam Ant, Goody Two Shoes, 1982). All songs – http://www.songfacts.com. (Relative then. Relative now.) Virtue is virtuous. The left accuses the right. The right accuses the left. The Boston Globe says a journalist from the Spectator came up with it.¹ The Spectator guy gives himself credit.² Someone else says it was first coined way back in ’04.³Everyone has a stick in their craw over the way the last guy or girl was using it, and whom or what the definition truly fits. I say, ‘who threw mud in the water?’ It’s a nifty term, it’s more descriptive than I would put it. I would call it plainly, “false virtue.” It all lends itself to the blurring of the lines that has taken place in America, over and over again. It has led to the double standards, hypocrisy, one-way streets and narcissism, ‘there’s what’s good for me and then there’s everybody else.’ It has led to the same crime calling for different convictions. The big believable screen is telling us lies or leaving out pertinent information. Politicians and talking heads make insinuations and then talk about them as if they were true. This is the establishment-your government=media=Hollywood=sports=corporate=repeat, repeat, repeat=judicial=purgatory in which all the cops are criminals, and all the sinners saints. This is they. This is them. But, wait-that was yesterday. Today, we talk of the cops’ heroism. Yesterday, we worshiped the First Amendment, today the Veteran, like never before. It depends on what the expediency of the day can contribute to the Big Plan.4 Today, what is bad may be good, depending on how our ‘corporate’ media wishes to view it. It is definitely trial-by-media and the courts are just an extra sideshow. There is something very dangerous taking place, and I would particularly ask the men, the women, the five races, the religions, the conservatives, the liberals, the Millennials and Boomers and X’ers, and Yada, yada, yada. Please take notice; your “shadow” government has created the very divisions they hoped would take place all along. And of course, we now have different applications of morality, ethics, laws and justice. Therefore, a bad person can be redeemed, and a good person made bad. Historical figures can go from heroism and importance to irrelevant, or a pariah. You, who probably know much more than I, are a revisionist, (bad), while I can be a revisionist, (good). We can have a statute of limitations or go back a lifetime. To them, it depends on the day and the narrative they are going for. Payday is coming up and I know you got the memo. The fiat bankers have been angling for control of this country since its birth. The death grip has been tightening starting with the years following the Civil War and the years of the Industrial Revolution. Banks and Robber Barons accumulated unprecedented wealth and power, leading up to the two World Wars. They have been slowly taking control of the government. It’s lucky for all us little specs that, at particular times, not everyone has wanted to play ball. I mean, guys like Louis McFadden. (love that guy). But they are still working on the same thing, the wealth is more concentrated than ever, and they are very close: a World Government-A big center of power by which you will all be controlled. Of course, I’m a crazy conspiracy nut, so, help me with the sane people who are are happily proclaiming it and writing about it in the MSM. Explain them. And, most are the go-along-to-get-along types. Most are helping them, their masters. There are people who are “virtuous,” but there are those that would like to blur the lines; blur the virtue, blur the differences of so many things. But, back to the virtuous virtue signalers. First, let us take the attacks of the Dems, all racially-aligned groups, the media, and our lovely popular movie and sports stars when now-President Trump stated that we must ‘stop the violence at the border.’ Hillary, to her talking heads to CNN, to stars Eva Longoria and every single star of Latin descent and sports stars galore seized upon it to make candidate Trump a ‘racist.’ What Mr. Trump said was actually true; there was a crazy amount of violence at the border. Movies were made about it, Juarez was the murder capital of the world, and gangs became a regular part of the American landscape. How does that make Mr. Trump ‘racist?’ It doesn’t. You would to conceive it in your own mind-and, then, we know something about you, don’t we? We know that you have a one-sided way of deciding in your own mind what is true. That you had to conceive it entirely without evidence. Then you proclaim it over and over. You make yourself a Savior of the Races. Nope. You are taking a selfish stance beneficial to yourself, or those who fund or represent you. Isn’t that what Hillary has done again and again? One had to know she would do it. I was already buh-bye. Amazingly, an unprecedented number of people jumped on board. Let’s talk about them. First-the Latino factor-self-serving-Period. Second-White people be racist-It’s all about the African Americans. Third-anything at all that seems like it could be discriminatory is all about the black people. Fourth-people wanting a better life. Too many numbers here to go that deep. All those “old white men” may have started talking about social justice warriors and virtue signaling. The SJWs tried to turn it on the conservatives. (Still trying). I watched a debate between Jorge Ramos, (Univision) and Jared Taylor, (white supremacist, racist, segregationist, nationalist, (etcetera, etcetera, and etcetera.) I mean, (American Renaissance), and it was quite interesting to say the least. Mr. Taylor seemed to make Mr. Ramos look like a Latin Supremacist, a racist, a segregationist, self-serving and selfish beyond the pale, (pun intended), caring about his own people and not giving a damn about European Americans, their land, or any of their interests as being American. Did I say seemed? He did. That’s because that is what Mr. Ramos is. He is a self-server of La Raza, (“The Race.”) There are way too many examples to cite. But one of critical note is Colin Kaepernick. Oh boy! Is he a good one? And how about all the sexual accusers? Maybe I’ll be able to point out how these lovely virtuous people don’t really care about the country or it’s countrymen, but about their own quest for power, to erase the American identity, and make it either their land, or a no man’s land, believing they have every right.* But, I’ll get to that issue. Let’s go to Colin. Colin Kaepernick was applauded by the media and fellow sports stars, and took a risk, saying he would do what he had to do to draw attention to ‘racial inequality.’ I read a brand new blog trying to shed light on this as a black man, so I’ll give him a shot here: There has been much tuhdoo about Colin Kaepernick and “virtue signaling.” Here is the opinion of one such, and a new guy on the block, so we welcome him: Matt Infald.5 What can I say? Where should I start? Like Mr. Ramos, it appears he sees things in “Univision.”6 I have no qualms with his first few paragraphs. After all, a lot of conservatives repeat what other conservatives say simply because it is negative towards liberals. He says, we don’t know what they really mean until we can equate them to actions. Good. Rather than take issue with his statements against President Trump, I’ll say what he says, what he does, is debatable. The Ohio governor, (Republican), would like him to know there’s another half of the country, but that half just wants him gone. Every time he has stuck his neck out, from top to bottom, the democrats are looking to take his head off. I’d have to review tapes of Obama. I do not believe he was under such relentless, consistent, attack…Establishment darling that he is. Kaepernick! Kaepernick! Well, Matt goes off on Mr. Trump, how he’s a Castro-styled blowhard (?), and self-aggrandizing. All those who voted for him are lobotomized, conspiracy-theorist, victims. I had to think back to Obama’s inauguration where all the white people who voted for him said he was for everybody, while all the black people thought he was just for them, and they laid all their expectations out that way—to which Obama was one huuuge disappointment. He believes Trump does not care about the flag, he doesn’t care about vets, he doesn’t care about the country, and he is the epitome of “virtue signaling.” Really, Matt? Matt cites his criticism of Senator McCain, which is correct. Mr. Trump had no room to talk, there. He called the country Third World, and said it is going to Hell. He’s right, Matt. The evidence is massive. He may not care about the country, but, I have a feeling he does. I believe, even if doesn’t do a professional job, he’s out there doing what is required. He pretty much financed his own campaign. He is foregoing the salary. His agenda seems quite aggressive. Perhaps he didn’t start out caring. Now, I think he does and he has to. I think if you haven’t done much for the country yourself, you’re not in a position to talk about it. He does call soldiers’ parents. He does honor his countrymen at the Cemetery, (Arlington National), and he honors the holidays along with every American. Nah, he’s not the epitome, Matt. Can we move on to Colin? Well, Matt says that Colin was just exercising his ‘First Amendment rights,’ and he thought if we loved America, we should see no problem in burning the flag. Matt says he was just protesting racial inequality. First, Matt, where was that First Amendment, when the alt-right, or whoever was trying to speak. Let’s say White Supremacists, even. Well, I heard several anti fa and Black Lives Matters supporters shout them down saying they had no right to speak. In the wake of Beyoncé’s rude entertainment at the Super Bowl, those White Supremacists, or whoever they were, probably saw all the black people wiping their bottoms with the flag. You know, I didn’t see President Trump doing that, Matt, did you? They probably saw all those green,black and red flags being waved. I didn’t see the White Supremacists waving those flags, Matt. Did you? You want the Confederate Flag down? Take those down. Also, they felt, rightly so, that his protest was misguided; wrong forum, debatable reasons, escalated from a police to a national issue. And, they would be right. First, we know, in the numbers, police kill many more white people-they just don’t have a fellow racebaiter around filming. They believe in justice. Definitely, two or three videos clearly showed police officers going way over the line. What I didn’t see was any indication whatsoever it was because of their race. Sometimes, when we talk race, we have to talk the truth, whether it benefits our side, or not. Next, would be the fact that black folks have done much better in this country than any other country by FAR. Not a little. By FAR. So, the question is: How can this country be so racist?** Every reason ever cited is a problem from within, not on the outside. But! If conservatives don’t like it, they can move to a country that doesn’t allow flag burning. Right, Matt? First, why should they leave a country they love? They aren’t complaining, Matt. Colin is. You are. What we know and you know, (unless you’ve had a lobotomy), is that the protest was disingenuous, and for more than one reason. Tell me, why is the virtuous Colin, who himself stated he was taking the risk, he was sacrificing for his people, now suing the NFL and trying to get his job back?????? What is virtue signaling? Well, to me, it’s when you say or imply how genuinely concerned you are, so much so, that’d you risk a career, as in Colin’s case. But, the country-haters got some blow-back. Too, bad. Now, you want your First Amendment rights? They were never against that, in case you’re still not getting it. They are against it being so untrue, just so untrue. They are against the false altruism. They are against people taking a family sport and turning it into a political grandstand like Beyoncé, like Colin. He’s not a hero. I guess he doesn’t really care about your plight as much as he said, because now he wants his job back. And finally, most of us, and I would agree, that the alleged plight is bogus to begin with. I can’t speak for President Trump but I can say Colin is a much better example of “virtue signaling,” -“Of false virtue.” Next, the sex scandals, another abysmal example of the “alleged” virtuously, brave women. The media, on and on and on, about “brave women.” Really? Good corporate maneuvering because they are either completely ignorant, or in absentia, or both. News flash: Anyone with two cents of power abuses it. Sad, but true. We aren’t talking just about women. This country is littered with its victims. In fact, it is a much bigger, monolithically bigger, problem that would be worth highlighting. But, back to the ladies: Being molested, or assaulted and speaking out years, indeed decades, later about it is not too brave at all. Maybe the first, not any other. You see there has to be risk. The ladies were not only not willing to risk, but now they are seeking reward! Bogus, bogus, bogus. That is virtue signaling. What brave women, who wouldn’t risk their job, and Colin, what a brave person who wouldn’t risk his job. So, there had to be many, many other victims to come. It still doesn’t address the larger issue of the abuse a multitude of people, man and woman, suffer behind company walls. Much, much more damaging, played out daily by the thousands, (a guess). It doesn’t get you elected though, does it? Even if one employee manages to speak up for another, it goes hush-hush. The extent of the problem hasn’t even been touched. “In the twentieth century, it almost a joke in the Western world to use words like ‘good’ and ‘evil.’ They have become old-fashioned concepts, yet they are very real and genuine. These are concepts from a sphere which is above us. And, instead of getting involved in base, petty, shortsighted political calculations and games we must recognize that a concentration of evil and a tremendous force of hatred is spreading throughout the world.” -Solzhenitsyn.  https://www.bostonglobe.com/ideas/2015/12/24/virtue-signaling-and-other-inane-platitudes/YrJRcvxYMofMcCfgORUcFO/story.html  https://www.spectator.co.uk/2015/10/i-invented-virtue-signalling-now-its-taking-over-the-world/  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtue_signalling  N.W.O.  https://medium.com/@mattinfald/colin-kaepernick-the-flag-fetish-and-conservative-virtue-signaling-49b2caab81a  White Racist/ Brown Racist  “Warning To The West”, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, First Edition, 1976, p.43.< datetime=”2017-11-12T21:11:43+00:00″ (anyone of such virtue may give up their personal land and personal rights may be so inclined.

You Have Been Warned: A Book Review of “Warning To The West,” by Alexander Solzhenitsyn. The Warning. I don’t know what else to call this book review as Mr. Solzhenitsyn was rather a prophet in terms of his many observations of the laxity and conflicting viewpoints in the West. Also, and I shouldn’t mention, but I will; It was always this viewpoint of having it both ways in this country that I have been taking issue with in this blog. You can’t condemn someone and then shoot the messenger if he/she does it to you. Your condemnation becomes one of ill-effect. The answer in this country is to have it both ways, which is more expedient to the agenda-but it’s quite bad for justice, the law, morals, politeness, respect, etc., etc., And let’s not kid ourselves. How easy it is to see that now. It’s not, ‘Let’s work a plan.’ The plan had been worked on already and, the truth of the plan is not one a democrat, or a conservative, or a republican , or one anyone in the average citizen arena would like. It’s an elitist plan that has taken shape like a spider web slowly being built around us. It terms of the merging of nation, education, religious, institutional, corporate and finance, it is almost complete. That is correct; it is all-encompassing. What a shame it is that the young have been so easily goaded into believing a whole lot of lies spun to make the good guys look like the bad guys. But the young should not be ashamed of themselves. I believe this was done to each successive generation-according to the plan. The Anti fa thinks they are doing good? Chasing down fascism? What fascism ? Maybe 1000 guys? The media is covering for them. Is that because they cover for the good guys? The media all seem to be reading from the same script no matter the channel. They are all on the same team…they are the most-watched news channel because they are all the same channel. Get it? Like “state run” television . Solzhenitsyn is trying to tell the West something: There is a competition going on with West, and the West is losing. The West is losing it’s bearings . It’s moral compass got lost. The distinction between good and evil has become very blurred in the country, and, at that time, (1976), Solzhenitsyn didn’t see it getting better. Détente was always a position where the West became lax and the Soviets jumped two points ahead. The interviewers posing questions to him in the book seem to be put off, (if you will), by the answers to certain questions. The tone implicates that the man is saying this out of love for the original idealism of the nation’s Founders, which he seemed to know quite well. (Sorry, you will have to read for yourself. It’s not a very large book.) A Warning to the West: Brute Honesty. The book is based on speeches and interviews given to the media, and educational roundtables of sorts. You get the idea from Solzhenitsyn’s approach that the listeners have come to hear pure glowing reviews of the West. Instead, he tells of the great promise it holds, BUT, is showing tendencies and symptoms that had his beloved country slip into the hands of such tyrants as Lenin and Stalin. You see, you need that to turn neighbor against neighbor. They needed to birth violence out of their need and frustration. (Can anyone see this happening today? ) The losers were the Russian people. They suffered at the hands of an ideology that thought of people as disposable tools. And, it was an ideology that Lenin wanted Pavlov to perfect on people! This is the system of control that REAL communism believes. It was not about a union of people. It was not about workers’ rights. It was about CONTROL. Period. Now, when Stalin came into the picture, he was a man who made Lenin afraid. To make someone as evil as Lenin call you a beast, you must be really, really, really evil. You must be someone who carved themselves out of the womb of hell itself. Lenin did everything he had to in order to gain power, no matter how vicious….as did Mao, Pot, Minh, Castro, Amin, the list goes on and on. Now, I could expound on the Venezuelan leader who defied Bush and the West for a bit,. But, his approach was more socialistic in nature. It did not include the Pavlovian concepts of the above leaders. It did, however, run into problems because it’s revenues were based on very few resources and commodities. The West wanted to make them suffer and they did. Such an example is one where elitists tell you how they play ball. They do it as they’ve always done it: You go along to get along or you die. This is another thing Solzhenitsyn warned about: Totalitarianism. A lot of historians and pundits bring up Hitler as an example but, Hitler was a bad example. The Nazi Party was still subservient to the international cartels, who were the ones who really allowed WWII to continue, until it let them frame the narrative going forward. It was truly they who were the real winners of WWII. Solzhenitsyn says he wanted to defect to the American side , as did many he knew. He also wanted to warn them about the true Russia. But, they were not there, and Solzhenitsyn tried to escape anyway—but, he was seized by his own guys and off to the Gulag. But he didn’t know at that time, or even the writing of this book., that the Americans and British purposefully stayed out of Berlin, so that the Russians soldiers could go in and loot, rape, murder and plunder the city. All of a sudden, look! Russia seized up Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia , Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria and Albania. And all of Eastern Europe; East Germany, (not a country before WWII), Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova. Then, turned around and started fighting the good guys in China and North Korea! Now, how did that happen? Does anyone think the West didn’t know what was happening? Since they had inside people there, since Roosevelt and Churchill were both arming Stalin to the teeth as well as plowing him with money for their own infrastructure, (which they kept and made the slave labor build). Do you really think the West didn’t know? Though they gave reasons for not going into Berlin, they didn’t hold water and no one pressed. The war was over. People were coming home.. There was a new narrative: Communism. There was also more government. A private cartel in America, who engaged in foreign affairs became a federal public outfit known as the CIA. Also, there was a need (?) for a complex designed solely for the defense(?) of the United States; the Pentagon. Yes, communism was the feared thing. Yet, one wonders why the US then let in so many Russian Jews? (the reason given; they were running from Stalin. Again, doesn’t hold water), Why didn’t they go to the newly formed Israel? You see, a lot of them were spies, with well-formed networks, (and still today they claim they were running from Stalin! amazing…with the media behind them…amazing.) The Nuclear secret came right out of Los Alamos to the Soviet Union.. People did question,(McCarthy), as the fear of Communism in America came to fever pitch, fallout shelters were being built, drills were conducted, new secret war rooms were being built underneath the ground. There is much, much more in the way of questions that made no sense. But, this is about Solzhenitsyn’s book and the poor fellow, (genius though he was, indeed), did not know of these things. He did later, and he wrote about them later. It’s funny how those books never saw the light of day…in fact deciding his return to Russia for him. They were very Successful books in the East. The Soviets honored no détente, as he pointed out, on SALT treaties, Cuba, dissidents. Also, the West, as a free and opinionated society, and no real experience of Communism were living in an illusion, he thought. Russian proverbs come out: ‘Catch on you will, when you’re tumbling down hill.’ The Soviets signed several agreements with several countries. According to Solzhenitsyn, they did not keep a one. And every country, upon becoming Communist, became merciless to its own people. It follows then, that he has heavy criticism s of the West in his speeches. He loved the freedom in the US and Great Britain. But, he saw the people as not taking stock of that freedom; what it cost and would continue to cost if they weren’t vigilante. He thought it a disgrace, YES!, way back then, that the press was not held accountable. In fact, he thought they were helping you fall asleep at the wheel. He praised Kennedy and Eisenhower, but said they didn’t do enough. You can tell, for sure, he sees the problems that freedom can present if you don’t hold people accountable or do things for the right reasons. If a Senator wanted to get re-elected, he/she would praise another détente as a peace maker, someone who could now hold authority on foreign affairs. But, nothing was ever honored on the Soviet side. Another Russian proverb: “when it happens to you , you’ll know it was true.” He also warned of helping the bad guys over Roosevelt’s poor decisions; “Don’t call a wolf to help you against the dogs. Fight the dogs yourselves. For once the wolf devours the dogs, he will devour you as well.” Speeches to Britain. The shortest piece covers his speeches and interviews in Britain. He was just as critical to them as he was the United States. He thought the West became soft and weak. The wanted much more to appease the dangers than face them. But, he tries to deliver the message softly, saying how human nature is full of riddles and contradictions—it’s very complexity engenders art. One thing he said was critical to the nature of contradictions was to make a clear distinction between good and evil. You are either good or you’re not. You are either evil, or you are not. There is nothing in between and the blurring of the lines helps the free person fall into Communism. What can be judged soundly without these principles? Solzhenitsyn says that without them, people become like animals, manipulating one another while the state becomes the final arbiter. He notes that Progressives seem to see them as “laughable,” and “old-fashioned” but being Progressive doesn’t mean you should lose your moral compass, your compassion or your empathy. He found lots of critics from the left and noted most of the criticism was from what people wanted to believe and certainly not the truth. End Synopsis. What I concluded from this book was that , the warnings, now 32 years old, have shown their ugly faces even more if people would just open their eyes. Every trouble that could befall a free society did just that. We focus on our jobs. We try to shrug off news that doesn’t fit the American profile, one that worked in the 50s and 60s. We place full trust in our leaders no matter what we seem to say about them. Solzhenitsyn knew what to do; he suffered for his beliefs; he was thrown into the pit; he endured way more hardship than any human should ever face just trying to be a free man. He warned you, not out of distaste for this country. He warned you out of the desire to see each person live their life more their own way. He wanted that to spread. Every single symptom he mentions, I see over and over again today. Therefore, I would state the same things; embrace the very real differences between good and evil because it is the way the human separates himself from the animal. Write truthfully. Do everything with integrity. Don’t pit yourself against your fellow man, but applaud his achievements and expect him/her to do the same. I would say to question every motive put forth. Change the difference between the truth and the false reality presented to you. And, finally, read this book! Over and out,. Always with great intention, Philabustah.
