When a person asks the CIA for employment, the
CIA’s first response is to tell the person to tell no one of the
request, but now we have people working for TV news networks and in
government positions to which we the people elect them, bragging about
their CIA affiliation, for cash or credibility.
And now we have “former” CIA officials
and other government and media pundits arguing for the appoint of Gina
Haspel to direct the Central Intelligence Agency.
They’re saying that her waterboarding
is excusable because she was only obeying orders when she commanded its
So a question is what’s more justifiable,
appointing CIA analyst Gates to direct the CIA and promoting him to
direct our Department of Defense, appointing political Panetta to direct
the CIA and promoting him to direct our Department of Defense,
appointing political Pompeo to direct the CIA and promoting him to
direct our Secretary of State, or promoting a “former Black Op’s
commander” to direct the CIA on TV.
My knowledge of the CIA recruiting process is
from my having requested it for myself after working for the Defense
Intelligence agency and learning the Ayatollah Khomeini was correct in
calling our embassy in Tehran a nest of spies.

Media and government pundits talk about
“politics” and “policy” as though they have no substance.
To argue for or against substance, when
they have no substantial argument, they call it poor policy or politics.
That’s like calling communism ideology,
while ignoring that policies of political leaders of nations calling
themselves communists ignore the substance of the ideology of communism,
the substance of sharing.
The purpose of all that punditry is to
distract us from actuality, and the purpose of that is deceit, of the
kind we call propaganda.
Consider that the word “abstraction”
originated from Latin meaning out of touch and that Greeks say Hercules
had to hold the Titan Antaeus off the earth to strangle him.
Being down to earth restored Antaeus’

Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs.
He said that we can’t worry about
abstract considerations like self-esteem until we satisfy concrete needs
like food and shelter.

Conspicuously, Dirtbag Drumpf is willing to
maintain his monetary wealth by any means necessary, and his means are
deceit to maintain his political power.
Compare that to Malcolm X, who called
for keeping the promise of the unalienable rights to all people by any
means necessary, while his means were mainly by telling the truth to
make us free.
One means Dirtbag Drumpf is deploying
is promoting the racism of his electoral “base.”
After the Ku Klux Klan burned Malcolm’s
family’s home in Nebraska, the congregation of the Baptist church where
his father was a minister helped his family buy a house in Michigan, not
knowing that a statute in that little Michigan town proscribed African
Americans from owning homes there.
The town forced the family to sell back
the house, and European Americans killed Malcolm’s father by pushing him
beneath a trolley car on his way home from church, after the family
moved to Michigan’s capital.
And, because police called the death
suicide, their insurance company refused to pay.
And next the state of Michigan decided that
Malcolm’s mother’s working three jobs to support Malcolm and his
siblings, put the children into separate foster homes and put their
mother into what Dirtbag Drumpf would call a mental hospital, because of
her despair from losing her husband and children.
And Dirtbag Drumpf complains about
having to build his billions on the few millions his father left him.
So define “dirt bag.”
Responsibility and consequences
13 March 2018
One factor pundits are ignoring in the
question of Dirtbag Drumpf’s competence in the “art of the deal” is the
difference between negotiating for money and negotiating for peace.
One difference is that, if a negotiator
violates terms of a monetary contract, the other negotiator can
retaliate by effectually ending the contract by violating other monetary
terms, and then going about business as he previously did, with little
But, if Killer Kim resumes shooting
nukes, Dirtbag Drumpf can retaliate only by making the people of North
Korea suffer more than Killer Kim is making them suffer.
So, as Jerk Johnson did against Vietnam,
Dirtbag Drumpf is jerking us out of the box of common decency and into
his box of sadistic perversity.
And another example of perversion of
our democracy is Sessionist Sessions’ suing the State of California for
trying to give illegal aliens due process of law.
The rule of law of our democracy is
congress legislating, and our Supreme Court balancing the power, not
And a function of the first amendment is t

But our media pundits, to preserve the
partisan perversity of government pundits, are ignoring all of that.
So we need to do our own research.

Sessionist Session’s suing sanctuary cities is
but one more example of Dirbag Drumpf’s dodging due process of law.
It’s an effort by the United States

rid us of them.

to justify it by pointing out that some “illegal immigrants” have
committed crimes other than immigrating to escape the horrors of their
Most of those people are illegal only
because they couldn’t afford a lawyer in their homeland.
And, generally, citizens of the United
States commit more crimes than do those people.
But we may teach them to be criminals.
An NFL player is promoting himself over
the dead body of a kid whose parents buried him in a jersey with the
football player’s name and number on it.

shooting,” and “school shooters” generally are kids whom other kids have
alienated from their teams and other company.

Dirtbag Drumpf says eligibility for
immigration to the United States should require skills and not only
One question we might ask is how he can
think that the unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness should
depend on whether one has skills.
And another we might ask is what skills
he’s taught to his children improve our general welfare.
And the main question to him is how his
skills help any families not his.
But many of us might reply that money
mongering is a valuable skill.
Those are we the people who play the
lottery and go to Las Vegas on vacation to try to “win” enough cash to
go to a beach and lie on their backs doing nothing.
They’re the people who think that
pursuing happiness is antithetical to earning one’s living.
Common decency would leave those people
in Las Vegas with happens there.
That would end Las Vegas.
And yet we the people deprecate productive
people, people from or in what Dirtbag Drumpf calls shithole countries,
people desperate to pursue their happiness by doing for wages we the
people think demean us work we think is beneath us.
We, with Dirtbag Drumpf, say those
people are robbing us, by increasing our real income, by doing jobs we
refuse to do.
Asses are more productive than those
citizens of the United States.

Similarly, media and government pundits tried
to deprecate George Herbert Walker Bush because his father had banking
interests in Germany, during Hitler’s rise to power.
Actuality is that Judaic bankers
controlled German banking then, and that’s part of why Hitler tried to
kill all the German Jews, who also controlled German media.

A friend of mine killed is father.
Mike, my friend, was a Vietnam veteran
living in a van in a gravel pit.
His father, a police officer, pointed a
pistol at Mike’s head and told him to be respectable.
So Mike took the pistol from his father
and shot him with it, and a court called Mike guilty but mentally ill
and sentenced him to prison, for the duration of prison psychologists’
calling him mentally ill.
That was about four decades ago, and

On my current trip through the Mikra, what
Christians call the Old Testament, I again today came across one of its
may assertions that God will pass the iniquity of the fathers onto the
third and fourth generations.
And I thought of a guy I know who calls
himself a philosopher, and I remembered that he told me his father was a
Christian who spent eleven years in our Army, and that the son of the
guy I know asked his father for permission to stab him with a table
knife while they shared a pizza.
So a question I have is whether both
fathers tried to browbeat their children into their form of fanaticism.
That father also told me both that philosophy
is a way to find a way to make the world a better place and that belief
in free will is compatible with determinism while determinism is belief
in the universality of cause and effect.
And I also heard him, responding to his
son’s saying his mother did something for him and expressing gratitude,
arguie that he and not his sons mother did it.
The son calmly told the father some
details of the event.
Despair brings disparateness, and desperate
disparateness is the foundation of bigotry, and bigotry is the
foundation of war.

Fox News’s show “Outnumbered” is four women
making a show of arguing Fox News’ notion of “conservatism” to a man,
and one of them argued a few days ago that the reason for the delay in
granting Kosher Kushner top secret security clearance is that he hasn’t
been through the process, because he isn’t a politician.
The reason for the delay is that the
investigation has revealed that he may be as corrupt as Dirtbag Drumpf,
and Dirtbag Drumpf couldn’t pass such a background and couldn’t receive
top secret security clearance, but he has access because he’s President.
That’s the problem.
Kosher Kushner, whether or not he has security
clearance, has access because his father in law is Dirtbag Drumpf.

Greedy bigotry is popular in the United States,
and much of the cause of that is that most citizens of the United States
call themselves Christians, and the definitive scripture of Christianity
is the Bible.

scripture of Judaism, and the primary tenet of Judaism is that God
prefers descendants of Israel to all other people and promised to help
them kill for land with descendants of Judah first in the order of

officials freed them and promised them the land.

Before presiding over the United States’
government and building a half-million-man military force to kill what
he called little yellow people in Vietnam, Jerk Johnson taught Mexican
immigrants in an elementary school only for them in a small town in
southern Texas, and he was a Democrat.
Hypocrite Huckabee was a Baptist
preacher, before he ran for that presidency while calling owning
firearms a God-given right, and he’s a Republican.

Republicans what they’re trying to progress or conserve and which of
them care about children dying in schools.
