Third world capitalism - 25 April 2017

By protecting employees from being fired for not earning their pay, by encouraging peer pressure against people who improve their contribution to their companies by doing work that their job descriptions don’t specify, labor unions discourage labor.  They were necessary a century ago, but now legislation in the United States provides protection against the exploitation that’s driving people to the United States of America from the United States of Mexico, people whose presence among us is illegal because their poverty trips their efforts at jumping legal hurdles.  We need those people’s competition.

But we have people calling themselves Democrats while preaching the corruption that permitted Camelot Kennedy’s family to build a monetary fortune first by bootlegging, and next by collecting union dues from people driving their bootlegging trucks for legal purposes after the repeal of prohibition, essentially bribing people like Jimmy Hoffa.

That’s the single largest factor against our economic growth in the global economy.


Zuckerberg’s social Zionism - 24 April 2017

Herr Drumpf and Cheap Chuck Trivial Todd, one of the two main MSNBC anchors, have similar manners.  Both say “that’s alright” or “that’s okay” when they’re talking to or about people with whom they disagree and touch the ends of their index fingers with the ends of their thumbs to emphasize the importance of their particular notions.  One could ask whether they’re also alike in their notions concerning Israeli/ISIS disinformation.

But the “that’s alright” and “that’s okay” disinformation suggests that they are.  It’s like the Pharisees calling themselves Christians saying they forgive people they judge to be sinners.  The same “evangelical” hypocrites support capital punishment.

Whether Herr Drumpf is Presbyterian or Judaic is only academic.


Earth’s oldest profession - 23 April 2017

Of course Herr Drumpf, who married one fashion model and fathered another, tried to defend Bill O’Reilly.  But a deeper and broader problem is that it’s part of the “populism” that supports Fox News evangelism and the Roman Catholic Church.  O’Reilly punctuated that by shaking hands with the Pope the day Fox News fired him to preserve its hypocrisy, as the Pope preserves his organization’s hypocrisy, equally transparently.

And denying climate change is another example of populism.  We the people decry climate change while we buy SUV’s, as we decry sexism while we call high heels feminist, and praise JonBenét Ramsey’s parents.  Populism is capitalism.

It’s the commercial consumerism that inspires us to be our own worst enemies.


Mixing maniacal messages - 22 April 2017

Jon Ossoff is like Heehaw Hillary and ISIS.  His demeanor, whatever he says, defies credulity.  He’s like Neil Gorsuch and Herr Drumpf but lacking their levity while his profundity is populist partisanship.  Such indications of insincerity indicate sociopathic personality disorder, as Heehaw Hillary’s paranoia indicates schizoid personality disorder, the sorts of psychosis ISIS “inspires.”  And, also like ISIS, Ossoff is Judaic.

It’s like Bill O’Reilly shaking the Pope’s hand the day Fox News fired him for sexual harassment.  The Pope heads a pharisaical organization that protects criminal molestation of children while it preaches loving children.  A question is who would wish to shake a hand Cardinal Law has kissed.

Bigotry is bigotry.  Sectarian religion is bigotry.  Sectarisme” is French for bigotry.  Sexism and partisanship are bigotry.  So, evangelical sports fans, think about it.


Reality imitating reality - 21 April 2017

The people who pay for any country’s government are the people of the country.  So, if Mexico pays for Herr Drumpf’s wall, the cost will be to the desperately dreaming people of Mexico.  They’ll pay as the dreamers of Cuba pay for Camelot Kennedy’s “sanctions.”

And the people of each country pays for their country’s wars, not only by taxes their government levies against them, but also by fighting and dying.  But we the people of the United States speak of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as though they were heroes.  The question is whether media or government pundits lead us.

And Herr Drumpf’s Presidency suggests that the answer to that question is that media pundits govern our government by leading us.  We elect to our government people who speak to us as media pundits speak to us.  So we think Herr Drumpf is sincere.


Getting to behave - 20 April 2017

Herr Drumpf, after calling China a currency manipulator while he campaigned for the Presidency, now has asked why he would call China a currency manipulator while he needs China’s help against North Korea.  Herr Drumpf’s question was one more indication that he doesn’t do what his supporters says is “telling it like it is.”  What Herr Drumpf does is lie, proving himself a “lying sack of shit,” obviously and conspicuously.

And his lying and bellicosity is a Camelot Kennedy crapshoot.  Kennedy’s hypocritical arrogance perpetuated the motives for the sixties civil rights and war protests and nearly perpetrated nuclear war.  And Drumpf’s random crap makes him another loose cannon scattering the United States in all those directions.

And his anti-Arabic anti-Semitism is part of his ignorant bigotry that will keep the wall he’s promised from being as effective against Mexicans as the “great” wall of China was against Mongolians.


Jim Jones jihad - 19 April 2017

A positive result of Herr Drumpf’s Presidency is that the three main cable TV news networks are paying little attention to Loudmouth Limbaugh.  Herr Drumpf, whether or not he’s on OxyContin, has far more entertainment value than Loudmouth Limbaugh.  Entertainment value, besides buying votes, is what buys ratings and sells advertising.

But the problem is that Limbaugh can’t launch missiles while Drumpf is and also is dropping bombs.  And, whether or not Drumpf is Jewish, he and Judaic Jared are helping Yahoo Netanyahu use ISIS to promote radical Judaic terrorism.  Netanyahu is also now in the shadow of Herr Drumpf’s glare but also has nuclear weapons.

No one is more “conservative” than Yahoo Netanyahu.  He’s promoting conserving the murderous bigotry of invading the “promised land” in the name of God.  The tea party is capitalizing on Lincoln’s accepting civil war to conserve our union of states.  But the primary mission of Israel is to reinstate the tower of Babel.  It’s no social affair.


What do you call victory or peace? - 18 April 2017

Officially “MOAB” is an acronym for “massive ordinance air blast,” but colloquially it’s an acronym for “mother of all bombs,” and Moab in the Torah is a son of Lot’s.  The Torah says that, while Lot was hiding on a mountain after the fire and brimstone bombardment of Sodom and Gomorrah, one of his daughters complained of no men being available to give her a child and made Lot drink himself unconscious and conceived Moab with him during the stupor.  And the Torah says that Moses ordered the slaughter of his wife’s tribe generations later because descendants of Moab asked one of them to curse Israel.

A generation after Puritans colonized Boston to free their religious expression, they hanged a woman on Boston Common for not quaking from being a Quaker, and Richard Nixon was a Quaker.  Nixon withdrew the United States military from its invasion of Vietnam, but people from then to now ignore that, and blame him for the invasion.  A Hispanic Harvard philosopher warned against ignoring history.

“Jihad” is an Arabic word meaning struggle, and Muslims use it to refer to efforts to defend them against that sort of thing, but people inflicting that sort of thing on Muslims say that “jihad” means holy war.


Dingdongs and duels - 17 April 2017

Now, politicians both Republican and Democratic, are berating Herr Drumpf for flipping from his campaign promises to their campaign promises that flopped.  Heehaw Hillary, referring to what flopped her campaign, is doing what media and government pundits call doubling down.  And they’re praising Herr Drumpf’s CIA director for his speeches against the First Amendment.  WikiLeaks isn’t counterintelligence.  But ISIS obviously is.

Pompeo is promoting the partisanship of Panetta.  Panetta deployed the SEAL’s to perpetrate the Abbottabad bin Laden fraud.  And Pompeo is making the claims that Sadist Hussein had weapons of mass destruction look like an honest mistake.

We’ll see if Herr Drumpf turns Pandering Priebus and Bigot Bannon into Hamilton and Burr.


Spinning the truth - 16 April 2017

Jesus and the Buddha preached that nothing is more important than compassion.  Herr Drumpf preaches that nothing is more important than winning and that winning is making someone lose.  But, since sports are humanity’s favorite entertainment, using the word “humanitarian” as a synonym for “compassion” defines “hypocrisy.”  Ask yourself whether compassion or winning is more important to you.  Ask that this Easter.

And ask how Herr Drumpf is President.  His “base” is in the Bible Belt, the home of most people saying that owning “guns” is “a God-given right,” people like Hypocrite Huckabee.  And bombing some buildings in Syria ignores ISIS, and killing 94 fighters in Afghanistan is token resistance to ISIS, and ISIS mainly supports bellicose Israel.

Yahoo Netanyahu is laying low while Herr Drumpf and ISIS do his dirty work.  And United States cable news is producing propaganda for them that includes slandering the Qur’an.  The Qur’an forbids any killing for any reason other than self-defense.


Show and reality - 15 April 2017

Where’s Sean Penn, “considering the involvement of weapons of mass destruction,” in this stuff about Drumpf and Assad and Putin?

He flew to Iraq to support Sadist Hussein, who tied the hands of thousands of Iraqi people behind their backs before killing them and burying them in mass graves, with their hands as he’d tied them!

Perhaps Herr Drumpf, considering his propensity to capitalize on drama, would like to replace Pandering Priebus with Punk Penn.


Nazi Jewish bankers - 14 April 2017

Bloomberg, one of the many media financial disservices spewing hogwash to the masses, said on its website that the United Airlines Chief Executive Officer is “botching response to furor.”  The reference was to “social media” response to UA calling police thugs to drag a Vietnamese doctor from a flight to give one of its employees the seat for which he’d paid.  Focusing more on words than on deeds has become normal.

And that silly CEO has responded to the continuing furor by calling his response messaging, while the media are complaining that the botching was that his first two “messages” contained no “apology,” as though his apology would be sincere.  Calling hogwash apologies is part of the message that university “communications” courses deliver to “students” of “public relations.”  That “re-accommodation” was criminal.

And consider reaction to “Tokyo Rose” using mass media to spew hogwash to United States military persons attacking Japan.  While her targets showed more sense than to swallow that hogwash, the United States government violated the First Amendment to the United Constitution, to imprison a person it said may have done that.  And consider the message our “interning” peaceful Japanese conveys to peaceful Muslims now.


Worldwide weapons of massive mendacity - 13 April 2017

Herr Drumpf and Judaic Jared, putting Syria on a back burner to fake trying to take out ISIS, are taxing voters billions of dollars for augmenting Israeli disinformation, forcing us to buy the hogwash they spew, as Assad spewed poison gas.

Abraham was a Mesopotamian and a Syrian before he settled in Hebron with wealth he acquired by saying his wife was his sister to keep people from killing him to take her for the fairness of her appearance!

Was Leonard Bernstein, when he said that “God made Tina Turner to teach other women how to walk on high heels,” thinking of his Jewish mother?

Herr Drumpf will dump Bigot Bannon only because Bannon includes Judaism in his bigotry!

So consider the term “Jewanka.”


Promise and land - 12 April 2017

A difference between Spanish colonialism and British colonialism was that both claimed Christianity while worshiping mammon while the Spanish were more Judaic.  The Spanish conquistadores went to South America for gold and destroyed all the pagan temples and religious artifacts they could in the name of God.  British pilgrims befriended many of the natives of North America, and British didn’t damage Hindu or Buddhist temples in India, or loot them.

British colonists behaved in North America and India much as Roman colonists behaved in Jerusalem.  The pagan Roman governor of Jerusalem ordered Roman soldiers to crucified Jesus for the Judaic leadership of Jerusalem’s natives.  But Christians are now blaming the Romans.

And note that “Christ” is a Greek word because Alexander forced his language on his empire before it died because he did.   


Big Benjamin and Jihad Judah - 11 April 2017

Pertinent to Tillerson’s saying that Herr Drumpf won’t focus on Syria before he’s defeated ISIS is the question of whether Yahoo Netanyahu’s buddy Judaic Jared has told either Tillerson or Drumpf that ISIS is an Israeli counterintelligence operation.  And pertinent to the question of the significance of ridding the Whitehouse of Bigot Bannon is whether the pundits asking the question are considering that Gary Cohn, Drumpf’s chief financial advisor, is also Judaic.  Ridding the Whitehouse of Bannon may help Jews and African Americans but increase the tax of terrorizing 1.6 billion Muslims.

The price of each of those missiles that hit that Syrian airfield is nearly two million dollars.  The cost of calling a fifth of the human population of earth terrorists to support radical Judaic terrorism is for more fiscal and physical damage than al Qaeda has done.  And the craziest part of all that is that 2.2 billion Christians support Judaic terrorism.

Christians have allied themselves with the killers of Christ as the United States has allied itself with the nation from which the American Revolution freed them.


Blatant bipartisan bigotryBlatant bipartisan bigotry - 10 April 2017

Andrew Jackson, Herr Drumpf’s favorite President, was Commander in Chief not only for the trail of tears but also for the battle of the Alamo.  The trail of tears was his ignoring the United States Supreme Court to kill more than a thousand natives of this continent by driving them from their homeland.  And the battle of the Alamo was a suicidal effort to drive Mexicans from their homeland to make their homeland a state.

So Herr Drumpf’s supporting Israel’s driving Palestinians from their homeland shouldn’t surprise us.  And neither should media and government pundits’ saying that removing chemical weapons from Syria will “keep them out of the hands of the terrorists.”  Unlike manufacturing nuclear weapons, manufacturing chemical weapons is easier than building missiles to deliver them, and our mass media are under Judaic control.

But the freakiest part of all that is that the United States government ostensibly separates church from State while calling Israel, which officially and openly calls itself a Judaic state, a democracy.  And we might well remember that the Alamo was a church and that Texas was part of Mexico during the battle there.  Now it’s a state of the United States and displays the Ten Commandments on the grounds of its capitol.


Mammon and murder - 9 April 2017

The ISIS/Israeli alliance is against everyone while the Jordan alliance is with anyone’s victims.  Herr Drumpf and Judaic Jared, whatever hogwash they spew at us, are plainly part of the ISIS/Israeli alliance, and so are CNN’s Blitzer and Tapper and MSNBC’s Mitchell and Todd.  Rejection of people seeking refuge from ISIS emulates the trail of tears Andrew Jackson, Herr Drumpf’s favorite President, advised.

The strife between Kushner and Bannon is between two brands of bigotry Herr Drumpf supports.  And the strike against Syria is more for ISIS than for what Herr Drumpf called “God’s children.”  Hypocrite Herr Drumpf worships only his delusions of his grandeur.

And, since Judaism defines bigotry, Bannon is essentially an ally of Kushner’s.


Dialing down 9/11 - 8 April 2017

Herr Drumpf used King Abdullah as a prop for slandering Obama.  And, at the same time, Herr Drumpf decried gassing “little babies,” as though he hasn’t done everything he can to refuse refuge for those babies, in the nation over whose government he presides.  Both Abdullah and Obama recognize that ISIS isn’t Islamic while Herr Drumpf persists in swallowing the ISIS hogwash that it is with the media he correctly calls fake.

And Fox News also distracted from the tragic actuality of the Syrian gas attacks to complain about Obama, partly by airing war monger General Jack Keane undercutting Nikki Haley’s protest by saying it was words with no relevance, and Haley works for Herr Drumpf.  Abdullah and Obama are an alliance for common decency.

And CNN, “the most trusted name in news,” did the same by airing former CIA and FBI and NSA official Philip Mudd doing the same after Mudd bragged about working for Condoleezza Rice and praised her demand for fairness and balance.


The mercenary haters - 7 April 2017

A difference between Herr Drumpf and Fake News Flynn and Tricky Dicky is that Nixon’s crookedness wasn’t commercial.  Herr Drumpf is a “business man,” and Fake News Flynn took hundreds of thousands of dollars in “lobbying” fees from the Turkish government if not from the Russian government, and the Watergate Commission gave no indication that Dicky’s trickiness was for money.  And neither was it racist.

Nixon’s Vice Presidency preceded Camelot Kennedy’s hypocrisy, and his Presidency preceded the effect of the migration of “Southern Democrats” from the party of Jefferson Davis to the party of Jefferson Davis in response to it, the migration that caused the corruption that eventually perverted the Republican Party into being the “tea party.”

And part of that perversion is the tolerance of Bigot Bannon.  We might ask why the complaints of either the party of Jefferson Davis or the party of Abraham Lincoln aren’t more vehement.  And we’ll find the answer in a mint julip or a cup of tea.


Picking what’s slick - 6 April 2017

Propaganda Putin, mostly by “leaking” facts, meddled with our 2016 election to our Presidency.  Yahoo Netanyahu, through Judaic dominance of our mass media, meddled with that and much else that we the people of the United States do.  A question is how any of that deprives us of common sense or violates the freedom to express bigotry that the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees to all here.

And another question is whether Joel Chandler Harris was a bigot.  Uncle Remus is an African American adult telling stories to a European American child.  And one of them is of a white rabbit beating a tar baby for not being congenial to him.

It’s a trap, but the rabbit escapes from the trap, by tricking the fox who set it.


The Bible from Judas to Paul - 6 April 2017

Let’s think about the Gospels saying that Jesus celebrated the Passover the evening before his crucifixion.  The Torah says the Passover was God sending an angel to kill all the first-born children of Egypt for what Pharaoh ordered other adults to do to Israelites.  And the Gospels also say that Jesus said that harming a little child would be worse for a man than throwing him into the depths of an ocean with a millstone around his neck.

Now let’s think about John calling himself the disciple Jesus loved.  John’s Gospel is also the only Gospel that says Jesus called himself the Christ.  And Matthews’s and Mark’s Gospels say that, upon a request from John or his mother that he and his brother have thrones beside Jesus’ throne in the Kingdom of Heaven, Jesus told John or his Mother that they didn’t understand what he was trying to explain to people.

Jesus tried to teach universal love.  And John was one of the few of Jesus’ disciples the Epistles mention.  The notion of a Christ or a Messiah, the notion that a descendent of David would resurrect people, is an interpretation of Old Testament prophesies of God anointing a descent of David’s to resurrect the Kingdom of Judah.  The Pharisees were a Judaic sect that promoted that and the Crucifixion.  Saul of Tarsus was a Pharisee.


Huffing and puffing - 4 April 2017

And so the nonsense continues.  Sunday, ABC’s “anchor” Martha Raddatz interviewed former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and current Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, and listening to the three of them was like listening to the three stooges.  Raddatz showed them tweets and ignored anything either said that disagreed with her reason for showing the tweets while neither of them followed the lead of her questions.

The core of the question of whether Putin interfered with our election is how gullible are we the people of the United States, and our media and government pundits depend on our gullibility as much as does Putin, and too often we tragically are their stooges.

And that’s despite our having the World Wide Web to crosscheck their nonsense.


Knowing who the enemy isn’t - 3 April 2017

Whatever Camelot Kennedy thought of Hitler, he was dead wrong about the future of international politics, saying that the British would fight to the death to prevent Indian independence.  Success of Gandhi’s political effort was largely by British recognition that the overhead of colonialism makes it commercially unprofitable, and Hitler spewed his colonialist nonsense in Mein Kampf to elicit alliance with the United Kingdom, and of course failed in that fool’s errand.  Chamberlain may have fallen for Hitler’s ploy, but Churchill eventually recognized the economics, and nearly fought Hitler to the death.

And now we have Herr Drumpf trying to make America great again by failing to accept the inevitability of economic globalization as Hitler said it depends on colonialism.  And Herr Drumpf is also trying to sell the United States out to Yahoo Netanyahu’s effort at controlling the global economy by controlling the mass media of the United States.  And moving our Israel Embassy to Jerusalem would declare war against 1.6 billion Muslims.

And that problem began when Churchill and Truman pushed the United States to call the Zionist terrorist organization Irgun the government of Israel.  9/11 was a response to The United States government’s support of Israel’s effort at colonialism.  Think.


How Israel is selling ISIS - 2 April 2017

Hitler emulated Judaism.  He fictionalized a race of chosen people, and used that fiction to support his effort to kill for land, and he used mass media to promote his propaganda after he used his propaganda to commandeer the media.  But his effort backfired after he failed, when Christians discovered what he had done to Jews and reacted to it by the compassion Jesus taught, and set aside reasonably blaming Judaism for his Crucifixion.

But both ignoring the forests to attend to trees and ignoring trees to praise forests are normal for humans.  A pundit interviewing the United States Ambassador to the United Nations asked her Thursday whether she was comfortable with the coming weekend.  She replied that she was, and she asked him whether he was referring to her meeting with a Chinese government official, and he told her he was referring to the Final Four.

And John King, CNN’s Chief National Correspondent, mocked her responsible reply and said her priorities were out of order because she was new in her position.  And King “converted” to Judaism to marry Dana Bash, the Chief Political Correspondent for “the most trusted name in news,” and Christian churches sponsor softball teams.  We the people of the United States seriously need to put order priorities beyond trivial bigotry.


Ignorance and integrity - 1 April 2017

China is famous for opium addiction.  But the reason is that Great Britain sold Pakistani opium to China to compensate for a trade deficit that arose from British demand for Chinese tea.  And now we the people of the United States are blaming the people of Mexico for our opium addiction and for our trade deficit with Mexico that has arisen because the poor people of Mexico willingly accept less remuneration than we demand.

And, of course, our commercial mass media are ignoring all that, because their ratings would fall with the denial of the populace, our refusal to take responsibility.  Imagine our couch potato populace standing up to tanks as that Chinese student did in Tiananmen Square or to rifles as those students did at Kent State.  And look who’s our President.

The First Amendment to our Constitution gives Facebook the power to solve all the problems or our democracy.  But we the people use it to support the unreasonable rationalization of our other mass media.  And politicians suck up to such for votes.


Anti-social anti-Semitic networking - 31 March 2017

MSNBC’s Yuppie Kornacki, Cheap Chuck Trivial Todd’s warmup act, heiled Herr Drumpf Tuesday by praising his debating against Heehaw Hillary.  And, that day, Cheap Chuck, while interviewing a former chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee concerning Herr Drumpf’s collusion with Russia, called him a hammer and said his reason was that he was like Hank Aaron.  A more appropriate reference, considering Herr Drumpf’s Judaic son-in-law’s spearheading our relations with anti-all-others Israel, might be to Charlemagne’s grandfather Charles the Hammer, who hammered Moors.

But the CNN/MSNBC Blitzer/Mitchell axis has no interest in referring either to history or to religious scripture concerning the problem of relations between Judaism and Islam in general or to the facts of Herr Drumpf’s collusion either with Russia or with Yahoo Netanyahu.  Marxism was part of Hitler’s complaint against Jews and also why he tried to invade Russia when history told him he wouldn’t succeed.  Herr Drumpf is German.

So the Blitzer/Mitchell axis is calling Herr Drumpf anti-Semitic while ignoring that more than 95% of Jews alive today descended from German Jews and that Kushner is Jewish and that far more Semitic people are Arabic than are Hebraic.


Sons of guns - 30 March 2017

The trouble with Hitler wasn’t that he was wrong about Judaism but that he was wrong in how he tried to deal with the problem.  Jews controlled Germany’s mass media, from before World War I until Hitler began killing them during World War II, as they control the United States’ mass media now.  But Hitler tried to deal with the problem by treating them as the Bible says the Israelites tried to treat the people indigenous to Canaan.

Hitler says in Mein Kampf that the Arians are God’s chosen people.  Anthropologists say that the Arians originated in the Caucasus and are the reason people who now call themselves white formerly called themselves Caucasians.  But they migrated from the Caucasus west as far as the English Channel and east as far as India and assimilated with other people wherever they went and haven’t been racially distinct for millennia.

If you doubt that Jews control the United States’ mass media now, note that CNN is our “most trusted name in news” and that its chief anchor and its chief political and national and pentagon and legal correspondents and the anchor of its show it calls The Lead are Jewish, and note that MSNBC’s two main anchors are also Jewish and that one married Jewish banker Alan Greenspan and look at the news magazine staffs and at Hollywood.


Collateral international surveillance - 29 March 2017

The intelligence war is distracting from the terror war, and combatants in the intelligence war are factions in our government, and two of them are the Republican chair of the Intelligence Committee of our House of Representatives and the highest-ranking Democrat on that committee, and focal to their dispute is whether or how one of our Presidents surreptitiously surveilled another, to learn of the other’s working with Russia.

Herr Drumpf, whether or not he’s working with Russia at the expense of the United States, has made the United States government seem to be a bunch of buffoons, to the governments of other nations, from Russia to England.  And that’s distracting from the huge problem of how to deal with ISIS that Herr Drumpf said was his primary priority if it isn’t healthcare.  Let’s remember how Jessica Lynch earned her Purple Heart.

Now our mass media mainly are reporting the failure of the American Health Care Act and the possibility of people like Chelsea Manning eavesdropped on a candidate for our Presidency by listening to a conversation between him and someone thousands of miles away.  And, concerning the refugees from Syria and the land Israel is illegally occupying, they’re focusing on Herr Drumpf’s xenophobia.  They need a grip.


Making the diamond district great - 28 March 2017

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews is raising its hogwash head again.  It’s saying that now, during the time of Passover, we should give special consideration to contributing to the “poor people” of the Judaic welfare state our government is subsidizing.  Passover is the annual celebration of the Judaic claim that God murdered all the firstborn children of Egypt for what the government of Egypt did to the Israelites.

Perhaps weirdest in that is that Christians claim that Jesus said that the kingdom of God is of children.  But that Christians also claim that Jesus celebrated the Passover the night before his crucifixion is one of the many Pharisaical contradictions in the Bible.  Quite conspicuously the Pharisee Saul of Tarsus perverted Jesus’ message.

It’s like filthy rich African American Soap Oprah marketing to middle class European American women in the United States of America while saying helping destitute African children go to school in Africa gave her maudlin mercenary life its meaning.


Preaching presumptive pretention - 27 March 2017

The blame game continues.  Republicans blame Democrats for the failure of the present form of the American Health Care Act while Democrats blame Republicans.  Pundits generally agree that no Democrats would have voted for it while about two hundred Republicans would have, and that puts the blame squarely and fairly on the Democrats, but arithmetic is irrelevant to pundits.  And Democrats are saying the Republican failure is Herr Drumpf’s for failing to lead the Republicans by their noses.   That says either that responsibility has no relevance or that we’re a dictatorship.

And now Herr Drumpf is buying into the approach Lindsay Graham recommends and calls collapse and repair.  That’s a bet that Hillamneycare shall self-destruct, what since its enactment it’s been doing because of problems the American Health Care Act would have solved, but no act can “explode” partisanship.  A question now is whether Herr Drumpf or Hillamneycare is most likely to drive partisanship to our self-destruction.

But, despite all the legislation and committees in our huge government and our litigative society, pharmaceutical companies are selling snake oil and side effects on TV while media and government pundits routinely slander twenty percent of humanity.


Big bang bigotry - 26 March 2017

I believe in God because of reason and find that, when I understand things, I enjoy them.  And I understand that I don’t understand how consciousness can ever not have been or ever can stop being.  Scientists now are saying that European Americans’ average life span has diminished and that they’re trying to understand why.  My guess is that the reason is that we can buy drugs and side effects that drug companies push on TV while others depending on Hillamneycare can’t.  And I understand drugs to be the reason Herr Drumpf tweeted that wiretapping nonsense at 6:30 a.m. on a Saturday.

Camelot Kennedy’s diary heils Hitler.  That, and that he took humanity to the brink of nuclear destruction to make “the other fellow blink,” suggests why reasonable people might have conspired to kill him.  And Herr Drumpf might well understand from that reasoning that he may be in danger of the same fate.

But the weirdest part is that both Christians and drug addicts support him.


Anti-Semitism - 25 March 2017

Now London.  A guy terrorized London, and Scotland yard said that what he did was terrorism, and our media and government pundits are saying that means that ISIS must have either done it or inspired the guy, and they’re again calling ISIS Islamic and calling what the guy did radical Islamic terrorism.  Jumping to conclusions is one process, and leaping to prejudices is a process into it, and it all depends on deliberate ignorance.

And it all depends on ignoring the facts that Islam is a development of Christianity and that Christianity is a development of Judaism.  And it all depends on ignoring the fact that the scripture that defines Judaism is far more murderous and bellicose than is the scripture that defines Islam.  And Christians’ ignorance is most influential in it.

And, of the six most popular religions, Hinduism and Buddhism and Daoism are the most peaceful, and Judaism is the least popular but drives the two most popular partly through its dominance of CNN, the news network we the people trust most.

Kim - a 1901 novel

Were all on Earth claiming or denying any sectarian religion to set aside their bigotry long enough to read this book carefully, they would lead the rest of us to understand and enjoy one another, and stop waging war.


The Red Tent - a 1997 novel

This is a beautiful book, a song from the spirit of bold-faced truth, selah.


Philomena - a 2013 film

A danger of this wonderfully accurate presentation is that other poor people might regard the heroine’s continuing loyalty to the Church as promoting such.  Saul of Tarsus suckered Jesus’ disciples into perverting Jesus’ ideals into the mammon mongering and power grubbing we now call Christianity.  And that perversion intimidated that poor woman and keeps intimidating countless others into paying to burn candles in fear for God’s eternal goodness to goodness.


Oranges and Sunshine - a 2011 film

This is a love story.  British and Australian government conspired to kidnap about 130,000 children and ship them from Britain to Australia for agricultural and sexual slavery.  This movie depicts the heroic efforts of one loving woman standing against all odds to return those children to whatever remained of what they’d loved.

What we the people of the United States call Jacksonian democracy was President Andrew Jackson’s telling the Governor of Georgia to ignore the United States Supreme Court’s support for the unalienable rights of the natives of the eastern side of this continent and kidnap many thousands of them and send them to the western side of this continent.

Decades after kidnapping the children, the British and Australian governments apologized to the children they’d kidnapped and enslaved and raped, but the United States government has never apologized to the thousands of men and women and children they kidnapped and killed by what reasonable people call the trail of tears.


Wrong is Right - a 1982 film

Every politician or soldier, every media executive or producer, every news media anchor or reporter, every sexist or racist or nationalist or Republican voter or Democrat voter, every Yankees fan or Red Socks fan and every other bigot picking one side against all other sides, for no reason other than putting his or her interests above all others’, without regard to history or common decency or other facts, should see this presentation and go back to school.


Modern Times a 1936 Film

Suddenly we live in a time long past the political issues of this film.  We have risen from all that to a complacency that has us calling communication tweeting and sexual companionship hooking up.  Such is how Greece and Rome fell.


Catch a Fire - a 2006 film

This film implies that white communists fronted Nelson Mandela and that he was sexually promiscuous, more than forty years after J. Edgar Hoover used the same approach against the junior Martin Luther King, and less than three years before Dirty Harry implied that a white soccer player saved South Africa.


Nixon - a 1995 film

This film begins with the correct caveat that it isn't the whole truth and may wholly misrepresent any truth, and the next screen quotes the evangel Matthew quoting Jesus, implying that Nixon sold his soul.  CNN calls Oliver Stone a controversial director, after his wife has turned the American Broadcasting Company's evening news into an all Advil Oprah drug opera, like Stone's movies.

Whether or not Nixon told his mother to think of him as her faithful dog, a fact Stone tries to soap or drug is that Nixon ended Johnson's insane war.  History allows no excuse for either Nixon's hubris or stones.  Or Hirohito's or Truman's or Kennedy's or Hoover's.

History allows no excuse for Hitler or Netanyahu.  Democracy needs objective reporting from ABC to Hollywood.  Stone is at least as contra-factual as Nixon.


Avatar - a 2009 film

The weirdest thing about this film is that nearly every mass media critic said its point was commercial technological superiority.  The point fair watchers find from this film is that technology should serve democracy, not superiority or demagoguery, not alienation.  Families risk death to flee Mexico to pick fruit for the free and legally republican citizens of the United States.

And, instead of welcoming them, the people too lazy to do such work create laws to keep them out.  They say that those people who can't afford immigration lawyers should not be allowed to attend their tea party.  They call fruit pickers drug dealers to get them out of their faces.

America, the land illegal immigrants stole from its natives, allows a population that sucks up to advertizing that it should be all Advil, while calling people not on Face Book degenerate.


Network - a 1976 film

Netflix, a generation after this film appeared, bills it as a prediction.  What it is is a fact of human life, recognizing that Jewish gold and Arabic black gold are no different in their effect on the ecumenical economy, the power of abstraction to make humans value hubris more than their lives.  It sold Archie Bunker and Tide as it sells Oprah Winfrey and Tylenol.


The Devil's Arithmetic - a 1999 film

The Israelis should remember the holocaust when they do what they're doing to the Palestinians.  Arithmetic is that the Israelis keep building settlements while the United States tells them to stop building but never to dismantle.  The "com" in compassion means with, and so compassion is a two way street and not a path of vengeance, and the Palestinians are more Semitic than the Israelis and neither German nor Egyptian.  Nothing is more holy than home, and God made the land three religions call holy the homeland of  people of many religions, long before crusades or jihads or the unprovoked Jericho slaughter.  And the land of the free calls the Israeli theocracy, Irgun terrorizing Fatah, democracy.


The Celestine Prophecy - a 1993 novel and a 2006 film

The novel is one of the few books whose promise bore out so poorly from its beginning that I couldn’t finish reading it.  And the film was more inane, beginning with someone saying he was a history teacher responding to someone saying he was an archeologist saying that the early church had buried the title prophecy in the 6th century A.D., by suggesting that Franciscans might have done it.  Francis began his life in the 12th century A.D.

The title prophecy says that the present millennium shall begin with people’s recognizing the violence that has pervaded history and stopping it.  Instead, the new millennium has begun with the historical inaccuracy of the Da Vinci Code making it the most selling novel of the first decade of this millennium.  But maybe we can take hope from that.

The prosperity of the last decade of the second millennium after Christ caused the recession of the first decade of the third millennium after Christ.  We hope that that might force teachers and students and everyone else to work for all living for awhile.



The Ten Commandments a 1966 film

This film begins with its producer saying its basis is scripture and historical documents and that Moses’ accomplishment was to free people from slavery   Next, the film misquotes the Torah and says Pharaoh’s daughter named him Moses because she drew him from water.  “Moses” is from Egyptian for “son”.

Dan Brown admits The Da Vinci Code to be fiction and still has nothing on Cecil B. DeMille for hogwash misrepresenting the Bible and history, and so we have to ask why this film raised no Roman Catholic outrage.  We’re thinking that maybe it’s sexism, since nearly no female character in it shows any purpose other than to fawn over men to give them sons or suck.  But the next question, after how the Motion Picture Association of America ignores its violence to rate it G, is why no Judaic outrage.  We’re thinking the Chosen might still be choosing the golden calf over the Ten Commandments, with help called Christian. 

The Bible says  the Israelites did to the Midianites, the people it says took Moses in and gave him their king’s daughter, worse than what Egypt did to them and worse than what the Nazis did to the Jews.  Maybe Israel let the film slide because it glosses over that and what Israel keeps trying to do to the Palestinians.


On the Trail of the Assassins - a 1978 book

The author, Jim Garrison, Orleans Parish District Attorney, the only person to prosecute anyone for the assassination of J. F. K., is as crazy as Ann Coulter and the persons he accuses, if he wrote the book.  The book falls apart in many ways incidental to Garrison's hubris or paranoia.

One way is by its inclusion of the terms “false sponsor” and “sheep-dipping”.  The people Garrison tracked must have been sheep-dipped false sponsors, as he must have been on the other side of the coin his book flips like dice.  The people he accuses range from the CIA to Johnny Carson, as though that huge body of people could have kept such complicity from the huge body of people with whom they associate, and so on to all of Earth.

Another way is in its assignment of motive, a factor essential to any prosecution in court.  Garrison would have us believe that hundreds of people in a dozen government agencies conspired against Kennedy on the basis of their belief that he was going to prevent the war in Vietnam.  Besides the question of why anyone wouldn’t like that, a fact is that Kennedy sent more troops to Vietnam than Eisenhower had.  We suspect a more obvious motive for that assassination, far beyond New Orleans.

Kennedy killed those people at the Bay of Pigs, by changing the original CIA plan and refusing to accept responsibility.  Kennedy changed United States relations with the Soviet Union from checkers to the verge of nuclear destruction of all life.  So, a few genuinely concerned persons at top levels of the Soviet and United States governments killed him to prevent that destruction.  The false sponsors must have been after the fact.   

I have no doubt that the assassination was a conspiracy, as we agree that Oswald couldn’t have done all the shooting.  But the human resources management of the deed must have been more constrained, leaving the smoke and mirrors the book sells to people as crazy as Garrison.


Idocracy - a 2005 film

This film predicts a future when people try to grow crops with Gatorade, where the hero saves the world by watering the crops.  In the present, people calling themselves environmentalist are trying to save the world by putting corn into gas tanks, while people around the world are starving.

That hero's name is Not Sure, while in this day and age people claiming to be smart say they're not sure, when truth they know is that they simply don't know.  Those people are the people who say we should do something for the people of Darfur while saying we shouldn't have done anything for the people of Iraq.  They are people like Mitt Romney and John Kerry, like Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon.

Those people are the people who put criminals above persons, who haven't had a chance to choose life better than crime and say their choice is compassionate, liberal.  As this film indicates, those people are already taking their world into the dust this film predicts.



Across the Universe a 2006 Film

The Beatles are a microcosm.  Kids sing about holding hands until they acquire power, and then they let go of their friends’ hands and their own minds, for what Solomon called vanity.  Like Greece and Rome, the United States were a world power before they alienated their kids in Birmingham and Vietnam, and those children turned their nation into an escape from everything.

The Beatles said they named themselves for the Beatitudes, before they turned to drugs, or after they rode them, to compromise, for fame.  Now, Lennon is dead, and McCartney is white bread, and the First World is all Advil.  Now, Lenin is dead, while Liverpool and the Irish suffer.  Viva Las Vegas, the ways of the world.

Irish and Iraqi suffer for no reason beyond the I in their names, as Israel suffers for no reason more than that humans prefer bigotry and drugs to the Ten Commandments, from the diamond minors in South Africa to the diamond merchants in New York, to you inactivists.


The Cotton Club - a 1984 film

My favorite lines in that film are from a white couple entering the club.  The white man says, “At least they don’t let niggers in here!”  The white woman asks, “They don’t let them into their own club?”

So Richard Gere gets billing over Gregory Hynes, two decades after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and now two more decades have passed, making more than forty years.  Bootleggers like the Kennedy’s owned Harlem in the roaring twenties, and now the Clintons have moved in!  How long, O Lord?

Now we’re engaged in a great civil war, to see whether Obama can run the Clintons out of Harlem, and the Whitehouse.  Cotton is white, while pickers are black, and now black has another fight to pick.


The Order of the Phoenix - a 2007 film

Harry Potter answered a question most of us think impossible.  The way to world peace is through the understanding that is friendship.

Nearly everyone claiming a religion claims it as a superstition, although every founder of every remaining major religion argued mainly one point, the sharing essential to prosperity, loving one’s neighbor.

Terror isn’t Islamic, as it isn’t Mosaic or Christian.  Terror comes from such as Crusades and Jihads.  Terror is in what Joshua did and in what Osama Bin Laden is doing and in what Hitler did and in what Israel is doing.  It's in what every bigot does, and it won’t stop until all of us stop trying to blame it on Moses or Muhammad or Jesus, on everyone but ourselves. 

It won’t stop until we stop making excuses to covet our neighbors’ land, until we stop perverting the teachings of the founders of our religions from the Rishi’s to Muhammad, into ignorance of them.

Only then shall we have something worth fighting for, and stop fighting.  The essential weapon for peace is not secret.  It’s plain.


The Last Hangman a 2005 film

Tolstoi said, in War and Peace, that the cause of the Napoleonic Wars was the first French corporal.  This film says the same, that the cause of killing is rationalizing some excuse for it, be it vengeance or following orders, or supporting one’s country, or one’s family, or oneself.  This film also says that we’re all in that craziness together, but it does not loudly enough say that, were each of us to refuse, it would all stop.  Snail darters would die of their own accord, and they and all else could rest in peace.  That Pierrepoint fellow was not the last hangman.


Meditation XVII - a 1623 sermon

John Donne, not Jack Kennedy or Ernest Hemingway, said this:  "No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."


The Wind that Shakes the Barley - a 2006 film

This film shows that Ireland and Iraq are similar far beyond the fact that the names of both countries begin with "Ir" when written in the Roman alphabet.  Ireland means anger land, and anger dominates both countries.  And so does greed.

When an Irishman told us that the strife between Catholics and Protestants in his country has nothing to do with religion, we didn't understand.  This film explains.

And neither is the strife between Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq religious, and nor is Israel.


Eight Men Out a 1988 film

Consider the operant steps in this plot.  A team conspires to throw the World Series because its members think they’re underpaid.  Late in the series they decided not to throw the series because the bookies aren’t paying them.  None of them considers his family’s welfare until a thug for the bookies threatens to kill one’s wife.  A judge a salary offer before accepting responsibility for correcting all that.  A kid asks one of the players to say the mess ain’t so about baseball.  Joe, it was so in all professional sports then, and it’s so now.


Palestine: Peace, not Apartheid a 2006 book

Although Mr. Carter writes from the point of view and with the tone of his claim to Christianity, sometimes uses words and phrases particular to popular expression of persons calling themselves Christians, and occasionally points out facts particular to such persons, this book is nearly all factual.  That is, rather than expressing opinions, it mostly points out circumstances and events verifiable through public records.  Yet, it has a reputation for being controversial.

Of course the reason is that few people bother to differentiate between facts and opinions, because most people are as opinionated and biased as some say Jimmy Carter is, and few people bother to research public facts, much less see for themselves, as Mr. Carter has.  In fact, if the book has any shortcoming, it’s that Mr. Carter doesn’t succinctly point out the most significant facts defining the situation.

Those facts are: that Israelites or Israelis have been oppressing Philistines or Palestinians since the battle of Jericho, an onslaught with no provocation whatsoever; that Israelis have killed far more people and broken far more promises than Palestinians have; and that the 1967 Israeli state was not one nation until 1949.

Moreover, if that former head of government of the United States of America were to carry religious metaphors in defense of the United States of America, he might have pointed out how David defeated Goliath’s superior physical size.

Now, Israel has nuclear weapons and air superiority through military aid from first world nations, as European nations took superior weapon technology on the Crusades.

So, now, Islam is continuing Saladin's jihad, against the world whose trade center is now Wall Street.

All a president needs to do to stop the terror is be fair.

Smart is truth, beauty.


The Sound of Music - a 1965 film

This film, set at the beginning of World War II, screened at the beginning of the United States presidency's escalation of Truman's advisory mission in Vietnam into a full scale war Nixon would would end.

Three years earlier, West Side Story screened, asking the same questions.  One film is about nations, while the other is about gangs while the only difference is scale, while presidents have ignored the politics of both.

Both films, in retrospect, should cause us to ask why they didn't change humanity's prospects.  That is, we should ask why we care more now about American Idols than about the ordinary people of Iraq or Darfur.

Both films have iconic weaknesses.  In one, a poor nun saves a family of aristocrats, and the other's title suggests that west is better than east.  But the two share an eminently importantly iconic question.

How do you solve a problem like Maria?

The Time of Your Life - a 1948 film

This film set the theme for the best of Hollywood since.  We had a problem with its epitaph, when the bar owner took the sign out of the window inviting folks in to be themselves and tore it in two, saying that enough is enough.  But then we remembered that integrity is always exactly enough and shouldn't need a reminder!  What's your dream?


Shinea 1996 film

Nothing is more important than music.  Nothing is more important than the harmony of inspiration.  This film says that.

The horror of the holocaust lives on, from the horror of the captivity.  This film tries to deliver a lesson to the Germans and the Egyptians, and the Israelis, all of us.  The holy land is hardly holy, despite how the sun shines on Karn Hattin.  Why don't Christians visit the Mount of Beatitudes?

In the sixties, when the great society sent millions of Americans to kill Vietnamese doing nothing but trying to live their lives as best they could, a popular song borrowed a melody from Rachminov s second piano concerto and assigned it the lyrics “When I was young, I never needed anyone.  Making love was just for fun.  Those days are done.”

Rachmaninov’s third piano concert is more difficult to play than his second while his second, played more in the film, is more sweet.  And popular music is more sweet now, in the war on terror that has made Bethlehem a combat zone.  How is Christ's birthplace in the shadow of death?

Astrology, psychology, stars and butterflies, what life comes down to is common sense.  This film is quite lovely.


somewhere i have never traveled, gladly beyond - a 1931 poem

A Harvard poet wrote that poem between the two world wars, between his imprisonment in France for driving an ambulance and German imprisonment of France for nothing.

Films we find near to that poem are The Painted Veil and The Tiger and the Snow.  Both films show what love between two people should be, as they show what love is.

Imagine Nero walking the Great Wall, if you wish such as that.  We all must remember that our enormous room is a small roe's chest.  Otherwise we cannot love.



Paradise Road - a 1997 film

"Oh, my dear, that's one to tell your grand children. . . .  Don't worry:  I love God, even though I sometimes don't know what he's doing. . . .  Love is like a flame; it burns and is visible to all. . . .  None of us will ever leave Sumatra. . . . Amen."


Bound for Glorya 1943 autobiography

This book is exactly an autobiography.  Other works in that genre try to explain the effect of the life in question on others’ lives.  This book tells succinctly how Woody Guthrie grew to produce his effect.  Woody and his story are works of dynamic integrity.  We need to listen, closely.

Woody Guthrie was communist, in the sense that we all should share God's bounty.  He was not a Marxist or a Leninist or a Stalinist.  Nor was he a Washingtonist or a Jeffersonist.

Nor was he an Amerigo Vespugian or a Paulist or any other kind of excuse for a name.


Reflections of a Cold Warrior and From the Shadows 1996 memoires

Both authors were at the top level of the Central Intelligence Agency.  One planned the U2 project and the operation Kennedy turned into the debacle at Bay of Pigs.  The other, recruited into the agency from college during the Johnson administration, worked his way up to directing the agency during the first Bush administration.  But the first declines to blame Kennedy for the mess he made, and the second hardly mentions the former Director of Central Intelligence who appointed him to that position while President, making both books smoke screens for coversion.  But any competent CIA analyst could synthesize truth from the details.


Jude the Obscure - an 1895 novel

"Because we are too many."


Babel - a 2006 film

With great technical and aesthetic prowess, this film shows how cheap and cowardly and stupid humans have become, the abstraction of the word “humanitarian”.  Many of its details and time lines don’t work together, but neither do many humans attend much to what’s in their faces, rationalizing private greed against public concern.  Journalists and politicians and doctors and lawyers keep trying to take advantage of the weakness of humans trying to be as suicidal, self-destructive, as they are.  One of the twelve tasks of Hercules was to kill the Titan Antaeus, the difficulty being that Antaeus regained his strength whenever he was down to Earth.  The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences keeps proving itself Herculean.  But most important are our children.  Note the dedication.


The Milagro Beanfield War a 1988 film

This was a Sundance production.  It’s set in New Mexico, the state of the united ones whose flag represents the sun.  Its theme is the power of the people, and it shows how humans can unite for the best of their life and love, against the power of humans who unite for smaller selves.

But it waves a rabbit dead to excuse firing to frighten humans.  Beans contain as much protein as animal meat, leaving killing cattle less practical than killing trees for golfing.  Humans eat like pigs, but we work harder at it.

This film promotes considering the lilies of the field, while it promotes eating sparrows.   It does not pass through the eye of the needle.  But it helps.


Hollywood Ending a 2002 film

In this film, Woody Allen closes his career by admitting the cause of his success, that he has catered to hypochondriacs, people who seek only pity.  Aristotle pointed out the technical difficulties of the staging of his time, and the French called those limitations an ideal and adhered to that absurdity long after Shakespeare freed the rest of us, and long after Eisenstein offered us Shakespeare’s best wishes, and now their pride is in ennui.  Cinema, at its best, goes straight to our hearts by opening our eyes, not by giving us more weak excuses.  In this film, Allen admits he has nothing on Eastwood.  And cinema is still beginning.  To show, to move.  Just see.


The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter a 1940 novel

Richard Wright said that Ms. McCullers accepted blacks.  More recently, linguists have called the non-white grammar and diction of blacks the “negro non-standard dialect”.  African Americans no longer wish to be called Negroes, and Ms. McCullers did not accurately represent their dialect.  But she did faithfully represent the lonely hearts of the down and out!  Can Mick ever rediscover her music?


The Last Samurai - a 2003 film

What’s the difference between a protagonist and an antagonist?  This film is a story of redemption, a story of love for the best and worst of us.  If one can divorce oneself from merchandising and violence, this film is beautiful.   In its beginning, the protagonist is a soldier who failed to die in battle, a person dead of his past and living without future.  In the end, his horse’s head is above his, as he bows to “the peace all of us seek and few of us ever find.”


Sister of the Road - a 1937 novel

This is another beautiful book. The man who wrote it must have been in love. Maybe a little as Mark Twain must have been to write Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc.


War and Peace an 1869 novel

Tolstoy, while fathering thirteen children with a woman he married when she was half his age, is mostly about his love for her.  The last hundred-some pages of the book he wrote while she bore most of them try to justify the book otherwise, as an essay on war regardless of peace.  And, maybe so, he died leaving his wife, the mother of his children, to justify his thinking.  Many of us live and die that way.  We ignore our life.
