 “The people that are actually fleeing via the sea that are on tremendously unseaworthy dinghies — most of the time without life jackets, without enough food or water — are in extreme danger, and they cannot always be rescued.” — Laurence Bondard of SOS Méditerranée, a humanitarian group that rescues migrants at sea

Oh, people raise their hands and say, “What are we to do? It’s too big. Too many social justice issues. Too much. What can Americans do?’

Funny stuff, the disgusting Libya now that Clinton and Obama and Biden destroyed that country. Oh, too bad the Beady Eyed Biden and His Elite East Coast Ivy League Goy and Jews in his Administration are just as putrid producing.

This is the dying Empire, and those former Empires, despicable and murderous, for sure. Trillions wasted on hypersonic missiles and the endless million dollars for each US “soldier” deployed for a year in another country. Dispicable the pigs that are cops beating nuns and peaceful protesters trying to protect land, soil, air, life — beating all around the world for those of us with those ovaries and testicles to protest the high crimes of the elite with the rumble of governments that are prostituting for shekels who deploy the many armies of repressors.

Guts, like Paul Watson and whales:

You can’t show this video to US children, because it’s not part of the Empire’s narrative, not part of the curriculum, because then we’d have to show land defenders, in this country, Turtle Island, pounded, pepper spayed and beaten to defend water and land:

There is a deficit of humanity in these Democrats’ zombie bodies, inside the so-called leaders’ hearts, all part of the devils that comprise all the rotten people in charge, shepherding along the Neoliberalism of Clinton-Obama-Biden. The Bush Family and the Bush administrators in those shit hole administrations, all war criminals. Same in Nixon and Reagan and Carter and Ford and LBJ administrations. Trump? The epitome of Jerry Springer Candidates, and there are many already in the Senate, Congress, in state houses, on local boards. Oh, JFK, Jr, murdered by CIA because he was against the military industrial complex, against imperialism and colonialization and war.

JFK almost ended Cold War and Cuba blockade in 1963, filmmaker Oliver Stone tells RT in EXCLUSIVE interview
The US blockade of Cuba and the Cold War with the USSR could have both ended in 1963 had President John Fitzgerald Kennedy not been assassinated, filmmaker Oliver Stone said in an exclusive interview for RT’s Going Underground.
Stone spoke to RT’s Afshin Rattansi from Cannes, where his new documentary ‘JFK: Revisited: Through The Looking Glass’ premiered. The film relies in part on interviews with JFK’s relatives and recently declassified documents about the 35th US president.

This despicable country, all those deplorable people, from Gates-Kissinger-Hillary-Trump and all the way through the East Coast Elite Ivy League trained Economic Hitmen, and those snake charming redneck conservatives, all of them, deplorables. There are man deplorables, many more than the Clinton declaration, or what Mitt Romney stated, too — the 47 Percenters: May 17 2012, “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what … who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

Ahh, those 47 Percenters. More like 20 percent of the USA fails to pay taxes, depends on huge government contracts for roads, buildings, space toys, military, and all the infrastructure to make billions and millions. Those are the ones dependent upon we the people’s labor, sweat, taxes, fees, fines, surcharges, penalties, add-ons, tolls, interest charges, balloon payments, PayDay loans. Hoarders.

“Global Witness records the highest number of land and environmental activists murdered in one year – with the link to accelerating climate change of increasing concern”

Shockingly, over half of all reported killings last year occurred in just two countries: Colombia (peaking at 64) and the Philippines (rising from 30 in 2018 to 43 in 2019). Globally, the true number of killings was likely much higher, as cases often go undocumented.

These killings include the murder of Datu Kaylo Bontolan, murdered in the Philippines after opposing illegal mining in the area. A Manobo leader, he was one of many indigenous people killed in 2019, asserting their right to self-determination and protecting their ancestral lands from those looking to exploit their natural resources.

Mining was the deadliest sector globally with 50 defenders killed in 2019, with agribusiness remaining a threat, particularly in Asia – where 80% of agribusiness-related attacks took place.

There have also been increasing threats and attacks in Romania, including the killing of Liviu Pop. A ranger working to protect one of Europe’s largest, primeval climate-critical forests, Liviu was shot and killed after protecting trees in a country where organised criminal gangs are decimating these forests.

You will not see action at all from both sides of the feces heap. Nope. These motherfuckers have gone on long ass paid recess, and they are the criminals, no?

Her recent piece in Time magazine is headlined I Lived in My Car and Now I’m in Congress. We Need to Solve America’s Housing Crisis.

Last week, Congressmember Bush introduced the Unhoused Bill of Rights, which she describes as “the first-ever federal legislation to declare the civil and human rights of unhoused individuals, particularly the right to sit, stand, sleep, or eat in public without fear of harassment or criminalization.” Earlier today, Congressmember Bush tweeted “5 AM. This morning felt cold, like the wind was blowing straight through my sleeping bag. Since Friday—when some colleagues chose early vacation over voting to prevent evictions—we’ve been at the Capitol. It’s an eviction emergency. Our people need an eviction moratorium. Now.”

 Christopher Smith—The New York Times/Redux

Optics, man, and even dying children in the desert along the Tortilla Curtain, La Frontera, none of those realities and column inches and TV shots expedite National (sic) Guard (wimps) and the DoD and the ATF and the Border Patrol and millions of others to actually set up safety nets. We are that dying mass of cancer. But murderers, nonetheless.

We — the 80 Percent in USA, 90 Percent Collectively Globally — are the nobodies, useless eaters, useless breathers, useless breeders.

Galeano, Eduardo, R.I.P:

The Nobodies

Fleas dream of buying themselves a dog, and nobodies dream of escaping
poverty: that one magical day good luck will suddenly rain down on
them—will rain down in buckets. But good luck doesn’t rain down
yesterday, today, tomorrow, or ever. Good luck doesn’t even fall in a
fine drizzle, no matter how hard the nobodies summon it, even if their
left hand is tickling, or if they begin the new day with their right
foot, or start the new year with a change of brooms.
The nobodies: nobody’s children, owners of nothing. The nobodies: the
no ones, the nobodied, running like rabbits, dying through life,
screwed every which way.
Who are not, but could be.
Who don’t speak languages, but dialects.
Who don’t have religions, but superstitions.
Who don’t create art, but handicrafts.
Who don’t have culture, but folklore.
Who are not human beings, but human resources.
Who do not have faces, but arms.
Who do not have names, but numbers.
Who do not appear in the history of the world, but in the police
blotter of the local paper.
The nobodies, who are not worth the bullet that kills them.

Remembering Eduardo Galeano, Champion of Social Justice & Chronicler of Latin America’s Open Veins

Its most basic material activity is a war against the living world, and as life is destroyed, the war must spread. The spread is not just geographic, though that is both inevitable and catastrophic, turning biotic communities into gutted colonies and sovereign people into slaves. Civilization penetrates the culture as well, because the weapons are not just a technology—no tool ever is. Technologies contain the transmutational force of a technic, creating a seamless suite of social institutions and corresponding ideologies. Those ideologies will either be authoritarian or democratic, hierarchical or egalitarian. Technics are never neutral. Bright Green Lies 

Go here, look at the choices, and go to Raj Patel. Here. My interview of the fellow, who is just out with another book, Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice

Just take the time and hit that link above and listen to yours truly talk with him a long time ago — 57 minutes worth on my old radio show. Five down on the list.

He’s on Democracy Now, talking about a new book, and the concept is that Capitalism has caused for 600 years biotic, spiritual, physiological, economic inflammation. The diseases of Predatory/Casino-PayDay Loan Capitalism, the perversion of a few elites controlling not just the gold and shekels, but futures of billions of people. They do this through inflammatory methods, through the process of weathering us, especially the poor and blacks in this country, and elsewhere.

They are more than just felons, these whites, who enlist a few Uncle Toms and Tio Tacos and others from other racial groups and ethnic and national origins. They are perversions of humanity. Those several million years of evolving as hunters and gatherers, before the death spiral of civilization occurred at the Fertile Crescent moment when pastoralists and others were then locked out of their traditional lands. Those human skills and traits we have to relearn. Call it New Neo-Tribalism. Forced to dance for food, or fornicate for food, that’s what the controllers did. Whatever these elites believed then was their God Given right to dominate “the tribes,” the First Nations, the Original Peoples.

With the seeds of money and armies, with Empire in their eyes beginning with the Romans, sure, and now, the flagging deplorable nation of USA, we have seen the wanton destruction of our own DNA through the ages of Industrial and now Digital imprisonment.

Here is one big take on how destructive and suicidal Capitalism is:

Bright Green Lies

There are so many topics and realities that are hitting planet earth and human kind in a rapid pace way, like the Gatling Gun of 2021:

See the source image

But instead, every system is in decay, and most of that decay has been orchestrated recently and at the dawn of Capitalism and with their royal perverts called the Barons — Robbers and the Murderers and the Rapists and the Despoilers. Pick a country, and then go back and see how perverted the British Empire was, or Leopold, and what he did in the Congo, or the French in Viet Nam. Just be smart enough to know what epigenetics is, how generational trauma and generational learned and adapted and biological methods of murdering ecosystems, cultures, indigenous populations, languages, and tribes and families is carried forth, on and on and on. This system of elites controlling, of a few corporations (financial institutions, i.e. banks like JP Morgan Chase or financial Mafiosi, like BlackRock and Blackstone) dominating, search on your own to learn how those people at the top and the middle managers are indeed the spawn of their forefathers’ disease of murder-rape-despoilment-theft-occupation-colonization.

Raj Patel and I talked about his book, the Value of Nothing. That is the rub, no, how capitalism puts no value on the most valuable things, like family, community, health, welfare, nature, trees, wetlands, mangroves, coral reefs, meadows, savannas and such. Well, the value capitalists put on those places and things are tied to extraction, and the thievery and extortion and the scorched earth warring capitalism which is consistently unfolding on society after society.

The disease is the systems of oppressions and control, and the learned helplessness and forced and planned/perceived obsolescence. Fear wins out, for sure, since the pitchforks and tar and feathers should have been rolled out in the millions of gallons and in the tens of millions in terms of those garden tools to end the murdering and the thieving and the raping.

Propaganda wins out, too. Neil Postman wrote a book that was published in 1992 which is more relevant now than ever: Technopoly

Neil Postman calls technopoly. In his 1992 book Technopoly, Postman defines it as a “totalitarian technocracy,” characterized by “submission of all forms of cultural life to the sovereignty of technique and technology.” It embodies the arrogant sense of solutionism in technological innovation, man’s new theology, under current industrial civilization. Making problems, as the authors here show, the industrial human’s use of technology, also including biotechnology, has been destructive, rather than restorative, toward the living world. (Source)

Then there is Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis:

Paperback Cosmopolis : A Novel Book
“Look at those numbers running. Money makes time. It used to be the other way around. Clock time accelerated the rise of capitalism. People stopped thinking about eternity. They began to concentrate on hours, measurable hours, man-hours, using labor more efficiently.”
― Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis

And so it goes, so many people left with no tastebuds in their mouths, because they are not conscious of the stink and the feces fed to them from the elite, or their captives, like a Biden or Trump, who is no elite, but a billionaire none the less.

For now, I could rant for hours, yet here, a poem, with more meaning to some, but truly to me, at this moment, than all the manure piling up each nanosecond as time is dictated by the morass of media run by the beady-eyed ones, the perverse, and you know their names if you do a Forbes 1000 search of those companies’ heads, or the Forbes look at the 2,700 billionaires. Each one is less than human, and quickly, even the millionaires and multi-millionaires who might have had half a soul, they too are greedy and now looking at us all as useless breeders, eaters, breathers and doers.

The Legend of Yatagarasu, the three-legged crow and its possible origins

From yours truly,

Are Crows Scary Or Just Scarily Smart? : Short Wave : NPR

Grandfather Told Me to Watch for Crows – By Paul Haeder

centimes, coins collected near Saint Germaine en Laye

old butter crock, near sagging shed, my stash

all those bike rides through cobbled rain

baguettes and batards for the family

boulangerie runs for mom, big pot of marinera

salad, and the pan, bread of life

I kept the change


old lady gave me croutons

to feed ducks, but the crows came

followed me home on my Junker bike

three speeds me racing through town

up hills where crows lifted easily

I spread the crunchy bread particles

crows tipped down for a munch

spoke French in their caw-caw language


the coin cache was once-a -week seemingly

fewer and fewer, so I moved the crock

to my window, outside, where snails,

escargot fist-sized mother of all snails,

climbed the slick ceramic at dew hours

snails I collected for my sister’s garlic

concoction, we celebrated the gourmands of Paris


I looked for crows at French school, and when

famille took the VW bug to the Rivera, three Kids,

mom spoke French, the old man German speaker, too

I watched crows at the docks, crows cracking open clams

crows at cemeteries my sister took me to with her Kodak

the black birds, those crows, smarter than the street cats

and mangy dogs kicked around by angry butchers

crows somersaulting for sinew, entertaining port-sipping

old fellows and grannies three sheets to the wind


those centimes were diminished by a factor of 10

the crows, I observed, took one, and returned

with bits and pieces of marble from the quarry

a jigsaw puzzle of amazing marble on the roof

above my bedroom, the exchange from me

the sucker and the corvids, full of French pennies

somewhere where the murder ended bird dusk dives


I spoke with a PhD at UW, in Seattle

gift of crows was his lecture

crows that would shit on a husband’s

black Mercedes, and bring bras to the lady’s

kitchen geranium planters

but that black Audi – old man squirting birds with hose

old lady gifting crow with meats and dry cat food

and even if they moved cars around, the shit plunged onto the old

man’s car every morning, the sign, and bras from distant

clotheslines throughout Copenhagen, lifted as bird gifts

to the kibble- gifting Danish lady


in West Texas, I drove like a bat out of hell

all the time, late, on this dirt road to the prison job

where I taught, my old jacked up Toyota pick-up

filled with books and essays, and the crows at one bend

where chili and onion trucks peeled out

where corn kernels spilled from grain trucks

my first near collision, one crow, ducked, as I traveled

over his road perch, and I stopped, he looked around

kept pecking at corn, and again, and again

one or two crows, ducking, as I drove over

for an entire semester, I skimmed over them

they laughed, caw cawing in border Spanish


I was in Arizona, no more centime-stealing corvids

but now Hopi and Navaho buddies, aunties’ legends of crow:

wisest of birds, at first colored white, friends of buffalo

caw-caw-caw overhead when hunters

with sharp spears and arrows came to kill

buffalo stampeding and tribes starving

so one day, a young hunter dressed as a buffalo

mingled with the herd, then

crows came, “caw-caw-caw, hunters are here”

all buffalo stampeded except the one

crow landed on the boy buffalo’s shoulder,

“caw caw, leave or you’ll be killed”

and the boy grabbed him

and the tribe wanted to do something with white crow

so they tied his feet to a stone, burned him, but the straps

burned through, and crow lifted, now singed, black


Or, Snow Owl’s version: How Crow Gave Fire to the People

When the Snow Spirit did appear, all the people and animals were freezing and a messenger was selected to go up to kijilamuh ka’ong, The Creator Who Creates by Thinking What Will Be. The messenger was to ask The Creator to think of the World as being warm again so that they would not all freeze to death.

Rainbow Crow was chosen to go and he flew upward for three days. He got the Creator’s attention by singing beautifully, but even though he begged the Creator to make it warm again, the Creator said He could not, because He had thought of Cold and He could not unthink it. But He did think of Fire, a thing that could warm the creatures even when it was cold. And so He poked a stick into the Sun until it was burning, and then gave it to Rainbow Crow to carry back to earth for the creatures. The Creator told Rainbow Crow to hurry before it burned all up.


I sang the dirge under breath as a dozen

crows tiptoed, paraded around dead brother crow

in a parking lot near a beach, and I held cars

at bay, asked my friend to stand in their way

to have them circle away from the funeral

corvid ceremony, a delight for me

those ideas I grasped, when I read,

 Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?

Frans de Waal said, “Are we open-minded enough

to assume that other species have a mental life?

Are we creative enough to investigate it?

Can we tease apart the roles of attention, motivation, and cognition?

 Those three are involved in everything animals do;

hence poor performance can be explained by any one of them.”


hang gliding years ago off Steptoe Butte

the wheat of the Palouse like a choppy

verdant sea, my glider new to me, circling

and turning, to extend the ride…

two crows, near my glider’s leading edge

right off my tip, cawing and cawing

then with flick of tails, down, turned

upside down, at my right wing tip

gliding with me, then, above, behind

upside down all the way as if to say, “nothing doing

polyester and aluminum helmet head slow poke”


the crows are there in ancient-new battles

men and children and women

exploded apart, or just left whole with death

concussions, and dogs come from the shadows

crows swooping, hopping from body to body

shiny buttons from uniforms gouged away

the eyes of those facing heavenwards

pulled out by grandfather crow

taken whole, taken to another place

huge brambles where piles of orbs

are pushed up, toward heaven


crows holding séances

waiting for the last glimmer to milk over

devouring what is left of sight

vision, some hope or love

some human frailty at the hour of death

fear and turmoil, eyes crow eat

as if to take souls forever into them


each new crow generation galvanized

to the dead humans

alive again, toward heaven, as a gift of crows

clownish and smart

devilish and forgiving

crows and their shiny objects

tricks like tobogganing down hills

or getting drunk on fermentedpyracantha

fire thorn berries gobbled up

just to see what it’s like to be human 

sad in our cups, forever believing

we are above when in fact

we are here, with the crows

Crows love cheeseburgers. And now they're getting high cholesterol.

Marx emphasized, “namely, that its own colossal productivity would bring capitalism to its knees, by making socialism followed by communism both materially possible and logically necessary” has turned out to be false (so far).

You have to give it to capitalists, man:

  • Bezos wants to buy NASA
  • gene editing of embryos, via CRISPR, is a growing stock investment
  • So who actually owns the world? As always when it comes to such overarching questions, we need to follow the money. That involves looking at inventory, specifically at the world’s largest banks to establish who the shareholders are and thus who really calls the shots:

Bank of America Shareholders

State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, FMR (Fidelity), Paulson, JP Morgan, T. Rowe, Capital World Investors, AXA, Bank of NY Mellon.

JP Morgan Shareholders

State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, FMR, T. Rowe, AXA, Capital World Investor, Capital Research Global Investor, Northern Trust Corp. and Bank of NY Mellon.

Citigroup Shareholders

State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, FMR, Paulson, Capital World Investor, JP Morgan, Northern Trust Corporation, Fairhome Capital Mgmt. and Bank of NY Mellon.

Wells Fargo Shareholders

State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, FMR, Berkshire Hathaway, Capital World Investors, Wellington Mgmt, AXA, T. Rowe and Davis Selected Advisers.

Goldman Sachs Shareholders

State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, FMR, Wellington, Capital World Investors, AXA, Massachusetts Financial Service and T. Rowe.

Morgan Stanley Shareholders

State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, FMR, Mitsubishi UFJ, Franklin Resources, AXA, T. Rowe, Bank of NY Mellon e Jennison Associates. Rowe, Bank of NY Mellon and Jennison Associates.

Bank of NY Mellon Shareholders

State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, FMR, Davis Selected, Massachusetts Financial Services, Capital Research Global Investor, Dodge, Cox, Southeastern Asset Management.

As you can see, the pattern goes on and on. The upshot of all this is that the eight largest financial companies in the United States are controlled by just TEN shareholders with FOUR companies involved in every single decision that’s made. That’s without mentioning dealings in tax havens such as the Cayman Islands, Monaco or Liechtenstein. Even more shocking is the fact that the US Federal Reserve is comprised of 12 banks represented by seven board members, some of whom are representatives of the “big four”.

In other words, State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, and FMR have a controlling influence on US monetary policy without oversight or democratic safeguards to speak of.

Here is a list of some of the companies controlled by the “big four”:

Alcoa Inc.
Altria Group Inc.
American International Group
AT&T Inc.
Boeing Co.
Caterpillar Inc.
Coca-Cola Co.
DuPont & Co.
Exxon Mobil Corp.
General Electric Co.
General Motors Corporation
Hewlett-Packard Co.
Home Depot Inc.
Honeywell International Inc.
Intel Corp.
International Business Machines Corp
Johnson & Johnson
JP Morgan Chase & Co.
McDonald’s Corp.
Merck & Co. Inc.
Microsoft Corp.
3M Co.
Pfizer Inc.
Procter & Gamble Co.
United Technologies Corp.
Verizon Communications Inc.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
Time Warner
Walt Disney
Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation
CBS Corporation
NBC Universal

The “big four” also happen to control the vast majority of European companies listed on the US stock exchange, and also have an influence over the largest financial institutions in the world such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. It goes without saying that the names of the families that control State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, BlackRock and FMR never appear anywhere. (Source)

Dr. Pierre Kory, Ivermectin (Let’s help end the pandemic.)/COVID and the lung damage: Updates from the Ivermectin world/COVID long-haulers and the management approach

Dr. Kory gained international fame when he went to the US senate and asked for the approval for the Ivermectin for COVID. Since then, INH has changed their position from against Ivermectin to neither against and nor pro Ivermectin – a neutral position is still a better position to allow physicians to use it without fear. Similarly WHO has started reviewing Ivermectin’s efficacy for COVID as well.

Here’s Dr. Kory’s biography

Dr. Pierre Kory is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Critical Care, and Pulmonary Medicine and is also a Testamur of the National Board of Echocardiography Exam. He recently served for 5 years as the Medical Director of the Trauma and Life Support Center at the University of Wisconsin where he was an Associate Professor and the Chief of the Critical Care Service. He is considered a pioneer and national expert in the field of Critical Care Ultrasonography and is the senior editor of the widely read textbook “Point-of-Care Ultrasound” which is in its 2nd edition and has been translated into 7 languages, having won the President’s Choice Award for Medical Textbooks from the British Medical Association in 2015. Dr. Kory also ran a busy pulmonary practice in New York City for almost ten years and has also lectured on and published numerous peer-reviewed articles in two other areas of clinical interest and expertise; 1) the use of therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest and 2) the efficacy of intravenous ascorbic acid in the treatment of severe infections and septic shock.

He has also previously served for three years as a Program Director of a Fellowship Training Program for doctors specializing in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and has won multiple major Departmental Teaching Awards at each institution in which he has served as faculty. More recently, he became one of the founding members of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance ( composed of 5 national/international critical care experts that devised a COVID-19 treatment protocol called MATH+ and he also served as an emergency volunteer during the early COVID-19 pandemic in New York City, NY where he spent 6 weeks attending the main COVID-19 ICU at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that “the war” against the coronavirus “has changed” in newly reported internal documents evaluating the threat of the delta variant.

“Delta is different than previous strains,” reads a slide in a CDC presentation dated Thursday.

The presentation is circulating within the CDC as the agency considers new public health messaging around vaccine effectiveness and the risk of breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated people. Such cases are still rare, the agency said, but are slightly more likely to happen with the delta variant than with other coronavirus strains.

The slides were first obtained by The Washington Post on Thursday and subsequently obtained by NBC News and The New York Times

They offer a clearer picture of why the CDC announced earlier this week that people in certain high-risk areas should resume wearing face masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated, and hint that the agency may be reevaluating other community strategies to mitigate the pandemic, which is now regaining strength in every state. 

The good news is that the CDC believes vaccines prevent over 90% of severe illnesses in people who contract the delta variant. Researchers have always understood that some people, particularly the elderly or the immunocompromised, might catch COVID-19, even if they are fully vaccinated. The point is to control the spread, and prevent serious illness and death.

20 July 2021

Dear Sirs/Mesdames,

Official sources, namely EudraVigilance (EU, EEA, Switzerland), MHRA (UK) and VAERS (USA), have now recorded more Injuries and Deaths from the ‘Covid’ vaccine roll-out than from all previous vaccines combined since records began.

EU/EEA/Switzerland to 17 July 2021 – 18,928 Covid-19 injection related deaths and over 1.8 million injuries, per EudraVigilance Database.

UK to 7 July 2021 -1,470 Covid-19 injection related deaths and over 1 million injuries, per MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.

USA to 9 July 2021 – 10,991 Covid-19 injection related deaths and over 2 million injuries, per VAERS database.

TOTAL for EU/UK/USA – 31,389 Covid-19 injection related deaths and almost 5 million injuries reported so far in July 2021.

Nota Bene: It is important to be aware that the official figures above (reported to the health authorities) are but a small percentage of the actual figures. Furthermore, people are dying (and suffering injury) every day from the injections. Bear in mind, the official figures are obviously higher at the time of writing (21 July 2021) than on the cut-off dates shown above i.e. 7 July 2021 (UK), 9 July 2021 (USA) and 17 July 2021 (EU/EEA/Switzerland).

This catastrophic situation has not been reported by the mainstream media, despite the official figures above being publicly available.

The Signal of Harm is now indisputably overwhelming, and, in line with universally accepted ethical standards for clinical trials, Doctors for Covid Ethics demands that the ‘Covid’ vaccine programme be halted immediately.

Continuation of the programme in the full knowledge of ongoing serious Harm and Death to both adults and children constitutes a Crime Against Humanity/Genocide for which those found to be responsible or complicit will ultimately be held personally liable.


Governments worldwide are lying to you the people, to the populations they purportedly serve.  

The figures above demonstrate that the mRNA vaccines are deadly. 

Yours faithfully,

Doctors for Covid Ethics

18,928 DEAD, 1.8 Million Injured (50% SERIOUS) Reported in European Union’s Database of Adverse Drug Reactions for COVID-19 Shots

Never before in modern, or even ancient history, have governments around the world acted in unison to force a medical procedure upon all their populations, and silence all dissenters who try to sound the warning alarm, which include tens of thousands of doctors and scientists.

Federal Lawsuit Seeks Immediate Halt of COVID Vaccines, Cites Whistleblower Testimony Claiming CDC Is Under-Counting Vaccine Deaths

America’s Frontline Doctors filed a motion to stop the use of Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) COVID vaccines for anyone under 18, anyone with natural immunity or anyone who hasn’t received informed consent.

Afghanistan was a war of lies, sustained by the powerful US and British media. President George W. Bush, a man of deep ignorance, launched this war to cover being caught sleeping by the 9/11 attacks.

“there are increasing signs that medicines play a key role in the falling life expectancy in the United States and stagnating life expectancy in the European Union. We’ve seen big scandals around Vioxx, Rofecoxib, a simple painkiller. The medication for diabetes: rosiglitazone, Avandia. Countless medications have cost hundreds of thousands of people their lives. It just keeps on going. You would think that after all of those tragedies the rules would be tightened. They’re not. In fact, they’re being relaxed”.

Max Forte, Zero Anthropology: Overall, I genuinely appreciated this film and sympathized with its main speakers and their arguments. I feel compelled to rate this film 8.5/10.

A study (pre-published in the journal, Hospital Pediatrics) reported hospitalization rates “greatly overestimate the true burden of COVID-19 disease in children.” Summing up, the study’s authors logically noted that their findings clearly illustrate the need to perform similar retrospective chart reviews for COVID-19-coded adult hospitalizations and overall mortality.

Based on the disparity in voting on the illegal racist and immoral US blockade on Cuba for the  last 29 years, we say to US Imperialism that their condescending lectures on democracy now  more than ever fall on deaf ears. The only thing more ridiculous are geography lessons by  Christopher Columbus.

We must demand  that the African Union strips Zionist Israel of its observer status. (Source)

The catch-phrases “transnational criminal organizations”, “humanitarian assistance” and even “disaster relief operations” are worn-out euphemisms for the neo-colonial presence of the US Empire and its European allies in Guyana and throughout the region.

Good bye, Glen Ford, of Black Agenda Report. Another voice of reason, resting in power/peace:

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. Because they control the minds of the masses, they have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power… If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”  – Malcolm X

Profundity coming from these blogs many times ends up in the recesses of very troubled and discerning minds. There are literally millions of blogs, and the millions of gigabytes of copy coming out of the world daily is astounding. Too bad we don’t spend as much time building, growing, serving, healing and educating. Instead, we are trapped in our own morgue, and we look to the ice cold boxes (if your community is lucky enough to have those refrigeration units)

There are no national, televised, 24/7 CNN shows drilling down into the crimes and murders and continuing criminal enterprises of the military industrial complex a la capitalism and USA Terror Networks. No parsing deeply the Biden or Trump or Whathaveyou administration in this shit-hole, with policy after policy, killing the people, the planet, the hope for any peace. Imagine, the lies about Cuba and revolts, and lies about Nicaragua, coming from these Icy-Ivy League Corporate Elites, and then, dare they condemn their other masters, Zionist Israel? What sort of sanctions do we get on Zionists involved in spying on the world, including USA, or their nuclear missile program, or their hacking into nuclear power stations? What sort of sanctions? Never. And don’t count on popcorn hours being facilitated by real interesting documentaries or fictionalized accounts of the horrors of these billionaires in Israel, or wherever. Nope.

Narcissistic, consuming everything around it, the mechanistic mind, as the system of beliefs with this desire, insists upon itself as the center of all things. Any identity developed from this ideology becomes one based on destruction, thus doomed to be a repetition of reversals “in a reversal society,” as Mary Daly remarks. The death of the flesh—indeed, what Luce Irigaray describes as “the murder of the mother”—becomes life for the self, with destruction as creation, emptiness as fulfillment. It can be characterized by what Erich Fromm analyzes as necrophilia, being “the passion to transform that which is alive into something unalive,” “the exclusive interest in all that is purely mechanical.” (Source)

 Technological fundamentalism, a term used by David W. Orr in his 1994 analysis, discussed by Robert Jensen in his 2017 book The End of Patriarchy, has been deployed for describing this ideology against biology and ecology. Technology, although substituted for the sacred, is killing the living world, civilization being its consumer.

Seen in the example of bright green environmentalism, the authors critique this dependency, which, in the increasing enslavement to the machine, seems a tell-tale sign of desperation, not hope.

“Unable to separate can do from should do,” Orr writes, “we suffer a kind of technological immune deficiency syndrome that renders us vulnerable to whatever can be done and too weak to question what it is that we should do” (336). At its most basic, there seems to be a failure to see boundaries, as one becomes only more obsessed with breaking them, including everything in nature to be dominated.

That is the sickness of the White Civilization, like a virus, pushing this disease of “throw it away now, out with the old, in with the new, and if we can improve anything, then go for it” mentality. We have that sickness deeply ingrained, since schools (K12) are rubbish, controlled by rubbish peddlers. We have state agencies controlled by rubbish peddlers of the Eichmann Variety. Entire universities in the thousands peddling rubbish. This “a means to an end,” is, of course, the Bezos way, since he is a fool in a phallic space can, paid for by you and by me. He will pay off more rubbish peddlers, i.e. NASA, to equip his perverted class with orbiting spas in the sky. Club Med? Shit, think Club Orbiting Cosmos.

And it is all rubbish, really, when we have ZERO people in the mainstream or even semi-mainstream willing to call a spade a spade. No real gutsy language, no name calling, none of that in today’s watered down or just plain looney media. We need motherfucking funny and hard ass people railing, brother, slamming, sister.

The audacity of the King of Death, Phillip Morris, declaring: “Philip Morris wants cigarettes banned in the UK by 2030”

Tobacco giant's stock falls on report of potential new cigarette regulation

According to the World Health Organization, smoking — including inhaling smoke second-hand — kills more than 8 million people each year. That compares with about 4.1 million recorded Covid-19 deaths to date.Philip Morris International, which was separated from New York-listed Altria (MO) in 2008, has invested $8 billion and hired dozens of scientists and technicians to develop lower-risk alternatives to cigarettes, including its flagship IQOS product, which heats rather than burns tobacco.

“Quitting is the best option, but for those who don’t, science and technology has allowed companies like ours to create better alternatives to continued smoking,” Gilchrist said. The company wants to generate more than 50% of net revenue from smoke-free products within four years, up from about a quarter currently.

During the night of July 26-27, the Cuban Embassy in France was the object of a terrorist attack perpetrated by two individuals who threw three Molotov cocktails, causing a fire on the façade and entrance of this diplomatic mission.

Cuban diplomatic personnel were not injured, but material damage was noted.

Terrorist acts such as this one are encouraged by the US government’s campaigns against our country, inciting actions that resort to violence.

The Cuban Embassy strongly condemns this criminal and terrorist act perpetrated against the Cuban diplomatic representative and personnel credited in France.

During the interviews, he assured that the US government identified the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic as an opportunity to reinforce the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba and to apply measures of maximum pressure against the Cuban government and people, through incitement to violence and disorder in an attempt to justify a military intervention.

The Ambassador highlighted the many messages of support and solidarity received at the diplomatic Mission from political representatives, intellectuals, trade unionists, supporters and Cubans living in France.

The criminality of these people, these Boris Johnson pukes, it is never really critiqued hard, now, not in the dead-end Press:

Offenders guilty of anti-social behaviour should be in “fluorescent-jacketed chain gangs” publicly paying for their crimes, Boris Johnson has said.

Launching the government’s crime plan, which has been criticised by campaigners for the extension of stop-and-search powers, Johnson also called the controversial tactic “a kind and a loving thing to do”.

Look what happens when a dude confronts another multimillionaire piece of shit, Tucker Carlson —

The worst human being': man confronts Fox News's Tucker Carlson – video |  Media | The Guardian

And then, more wasted human flesh, commenting on this, and saying, no, famous fucking criminal people like Tucker and any number of slugs, should never be politely called out in public. This is how the rich work it:

Meghan McCain may be fine with going head-to-head on The View, but that doesn’t mean she wants to see that happen anywhere else. On today’s episode of the ABC talk show, the co-host slammed a recent confrontation involving a private citizen and Tucker Carlson in a fishing store, disagreeing with the other ladies who deemed the spat justifiable.

“I think it’s a very, very slippery slope,” McCain said. “I know how much people don’t like Tucker Carlson. People equally don’t like Meghan McCain and Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin and Whoopi and Sara. When you’re putting your opinion out there, you’re making yourself a target.”

The co-host then got personal, sharing that she and her husband now have to “talk about what restaurants” and “neighborhoods” they feel “comfortable” at with their infant daughter. She then shared a bit of empathy for Tucker Carlson’s wife, who once had to barricade herself from protesters.

“This isn’t normal. I think any rationalization that this is normal or should be accepted in the United States of America is not only indecent, but it’s beyond the pale of any expectation of any kind of decorum in a society like the United States of America,” McCain concluded. “Anyone who tries to rationalize it is gross. That man should apologize to Tucker Carlson.” (Source)

Now, I have no idea what this stupid show is, how these overpaid, idiotic hosts run it, and who McCain is (John McCain’s evil spawn?), but this is how the elite work — it’s all protected, gated-community, lawyering up colonized fascist thinking. Ahh, shucks, can’t go out and verbally slam any number (in the millions) of leaders of, spokespersons for, and workers of the military-pharma-banking-prison-surveillance-real estate-investing-AI-education-media-fossil fuel-resource destroying-lobbying Complex? Would these elites and their prostitutes rather have this below? Hmmmmm.

And who would dare take Boris Johnson to task, with this fucking inane statement — “If you are guilty of antisocial behaviour and you are sentenced to unpaid work, as many people are, I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t be out there in one of those fluorescent-jacketed chain gangs visibly paying your debt to society. So you are going to be seeing more of that as well,” Johnson told reporters.

Imagine, visualizing this: the antisocial mentality AND behavior of the elite, of the Boris Johnson types, all of their paymasters, all of them, stealing from the public coffers in broad daylight, getting into those jumpsuits, and, yep, Orange is the New Politics for Politicians, and those leaders of the Complex listed above.

So, this sick morgue of a society run into the ground by Capitalists is coming up short on life-saving, cheap and inexpensive and out-of-the-ER-ICU treatments, but darn, no more booze? We’ll fix that!

Shelves nearly empty of beer at a supermarket in as shoppers purchase supplies amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Yep, booze at home increased during the first 15 months of planned pandemic, and then, now, with bars and restaurants (opening up) selling the deadly stuff, we have shortages, much of it linked to no glass bottles, not caps, and no glue for labels — Fucking Capitalism and Transnationalism:

As the U.S. continues to grapple with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the non-health burdens that’s never seemingly let up, even as the virus itself has ebbed and flowed, is supply shortages. A shortage of shipping containers and the complexities of supply chains during the pandemic have resulted in heavy delays and shortages on everything from  furniture  to  chlorine  to shellfish over the course of the last year and a half. And now, some states are facing a shortage of one of the products Americans tend to lean on in times like this: alcohol.

Every second of every day, the blustery bumbling (planned) of countries privatizing everything and letting the revolving door ruin not only cities, but entire nations, on display wherever you go for your fake news; however, no show on TV, or on the internet going for broke, calling out the mindlessness and mindfulness of this rape of the people, planet and prosperity. It is all a pack of lies, and the liars control the medium and the messages and the schooling and the corporate law. It is their world, all packed with the most perverse judges, most little of little man complex District Attorneys, packed with the oppressors and subjugators in and outside or city, county, state office/employment.

The reality for me is that I was terminated unethically and wrongfully from a nonprofit social services poverty pimping outfit, and I fought them for both a wrongful discrimination event through Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries, via age-gender discrimination case; and then I had to fight them — the terminating nonprofit — for the measly unemployment benefits owed me. I won on the last account, and the BOLI event is in the backlogged and understaffed pipeline of this state’s dying safety net arena. Every day I look for and apply to jobs, and I get some interviews, sometimes two for one position, but alas, this is the Eichmann Show, the simple minded show, where people (all women thus far) are in the social services game, judging me, and I know I interview well as well as have the credentials to do any of these jobs, but these people, these K12 colonized people, and those with fucked up college degrees, many of them are more than just leery of the old socialist guy with more college education than what they have. They are discriminating against me, a, white guy, b, old white guy, c, old very radical white guy, d, very prolific and unabashedly pro-client but anti-supervisor old white guy. Imagine, two jobs a week the Oregon Unemployment office demands I apply to, in this county, Lincoln, with few and far between jobs, and I expect they want me to eventually apply to a hotel to be a linen guy. Not that this job is unworthy of respect, but again, I am qualified for any number of social services jobs, education jobs, editing and planning jobs, but they are not HERE, in this Oregon Coast County with high poverty, higher unemployment, higher housing costs, and higher levels of ZERO housing.

Bloomberg columnist highlighted what we’ve been seeing in the job market, but no one wants to openly talk about: “people 55 and older [are] leaving the labor force.” 

The number of people over the age of 55 who are participating in the workforce is down by 2 million, compared to pre-pandemic levels. The Great Recession of 2008 didn’t even result in this huge of a loss of senior, experienced workers. 

Not that I have much respect for Bloomberg or Forbes, but here,

Anyone who’s been actively searching for a job has likely noticed that advertisements call for candidates with only about three to five years of experience. It’s rare to read a job listing that specifically calls for an applicant with more than 30 years of relevant experience. The liberal usage of lower-end titles, such as “associate” or “analyst,” coupled with the requirements of certain technologies, software and systems, seem to say that veteran workers need not apply. 

Jobs have steadily been moved to lower-cost states in the U.S. and to other countries. It’s a salary arbitrage. The position that was once based in New York City or San Francisco is now located in a city or country that is less expensive. The salary offered would be much lower. An experienced person may elect not to move her family across the country to take a job that’s about 40% lower compared to what she’s earning. Eventually, her job would be eliminated and replaced by a lesser-paid person in the other location. (Source)

Oh, that great example of putridity, American style, sucker born every second, smoke and mirrors, faux society, la-la land, Disney, will sell out again:

“Capital and corporations are not loyal. They are not people. They don’t have emotions. All they care about is the bottom line and that’s why the move is gonna happen,” said Fernando Guerra, a political science professor at Loyola Marymount University. “The existing 2,000 employees, it’s not better for them cause half of them, or more than half, will lose their jobs and many will decide not to go over.”

The Disney move is to gain $600,000,000 in tax giveaways, no unions, and a redneck, conservative, non-activist state mentality. Sure, one quarter hat tip for Abigail but in reality, again, these rich people need to be taken to task — Capitalism is all about Protecting Polluters, Criminal Bankers, Perverted Rich, Tax Dodging millionaires, Dream Hoarders, Crime Syndicates. It doesn’t matter if it is golden (rainbow) shower Trump or pedophile Prince Andrew, all of them, criminals, protected by media, lawyers, the laws they write to feed more and more workers into their human squashing machines.

Abigail Disney, heiress to the Walt Disney Company, argued Tuesday that the U.S. economy is in an “upside-down structure” in which some people are constantly working “to make ends meet,” while wealthy individuals are “sitting on their rear ends” while “not paying taxes.” 

Disney, a longtime proponent of a federal wealth tax, said in an interview on CNN’s “New Day,” said it “really is time for wealthy people to ask themselves some hard questions.” 

The granddaughter of Roy Disney and grandniece of Walt Disney said there has been a “long, long many generations ethos” in which wealthy families have taught their children to take advantage of the tax system in order to protect their assets.

So, again, all this news, all the inhumanities, all the planned collapses, all of it, daily, and, it does reach to me personally, and those babies in the ice cream freezers, that is the USA, right from the bottom of the morgue blood pool, to the top, where a hero, like Daniel Hale, faces Julian Assange time —

Daniel Hale Letter to Judge Liam O’Grady

The deaths of the two men sparked protests in the days that followed, symbolizing for many Yemenis the human cost of U.S. counterterrorism operations in their country. Thousands of miles away, at the U.S. military’s base in Bagram, Afghanistan, Daniel Hale, a young intelligence specialist in the U.S. Air Force, watched the missiles land. One year later, Hale found himself sitting on a Washington, D.C., panel, listening as Salim’s brother, Faisal bin Ali Jaber, recalled the day Salim was killed.

As Fazil recounted what happened next, I felt myself transported back in time to where I had been on that day, 2012. Unbeknownst to Fazil and those of his village at the time was that they had not been the only ones watching Salem approach the jihadist in the car. From Afghanistan, I and everyone on duty paused their work to witness the carnage that was about to unfold. At the press of a button, from thousands of miles away, two Hellfire missiles screeched out of the sky, followed by two more. Showing no signs of remorse, I, and those around me, clapped and cheered triumphantly. In front of a speechless auditorium, Fazil wept.

This is how Amerikkka runs, criminal judges, and putting an environmental lawyer on house arrest for 600 days, and then found guilty by Chevron Judge? There will be no blasting of the judicial system, of capitalism, of these white devils from Ivy League to all the other Top Rot Law Schools. Because those with a voice box, those on TV, know they fear losing millions and being locked up in censorship or no job hell.

Six members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus sent a letter Tuesday urging U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to immediately review an ongoing legal case involving human rights lawyer Steven Donziger, who has endured more than 600 days of house arrest related to his efforts to help hold oil giant Chevron accountable for its Ecuador disaster.

U.S. publisher rejects random lab-leak theory of COVID-19

Special: Battle Against Novel Coronavirus

Existential evidence suggested the possibility of a coronavirus biowarfare attack launched by Washington more than the lab-leak theory, said Ron Unz in a review article published on the Unz Review website in late May.

China had been hit by various viruses right when the country was locked in a growing conflict with America for years, noted Unz, the website’s editor-in-chief and publisher.

Additionally, the outbreak of COVID-19 “appeared at the worst time and place for China,” referring to the Lunar New Year holiday with a travel rush, and the major transit hub of Wuhan in central China with a huge volume of passengers, said Unz, who believes the timing of the emergence of COVID-19 is “suspicious.”

“300 American military servicemen had just visited Wuhan as part of the Military World Games, providing a perfect opportunity for releasing a viral weapon,” he noted, calling the scenario “a strange coincidence.”

“The characteristics of COVID-19, including high communicability and low lethality, are absolutely ideal in an anti-economy bioweapon,” Unz said, adding it’s odd to speculate that a Chinese lab would release a virus perfectly designed to damage the Chinese economy

To Protect Ourselves From Bioweapons, We May Have to Reinvent Science Itself
In June 2012, a team of researchers from the University of Wisconsin published a paper in the journal Nature about airborne transmission of H5N1 influenza, or bird flu, in ferrets. The article changed the way the United States and nations around the world approached manmade biological threats.

This was not the researchers’ intent.
The team had altered the virus’s amino acid profile, allowing it to reproduce in mammal lungs, which are a bit colder than bird lungs. That small change allowed the virus to be transmitted via coughing and sneezing, and it solved the riddle of how H5N1 could become airborne in humans. 
The U.S. government initially supported the work through grants, but members of Congress, among other critics around the world, responded to the publication of the research with alarm and condemnation. A New York Times editorial described the experiment and similar research conducted in the Netherlands, eventually published in the journal as “An Engineered Doomsday.” So the researchers agreed to a voluntary moratorium on their findings. In October, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy announced that it would halt funding for research into how to make diseases more lethal — so-called “gain-of-function” studies — and asked anyone doing such research on deadly diseases to cease and desist.

Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, head of the US Central Command, said, “The United States has increased airstrikes in the support of Afghan forces over the last several days, and we are prepared to continue this heightened level of support in the coming weeks if the Taliban continue their attacks.”

The vessel for propaganda is the cauldron of the fearful, and we see it play out daily, in soft porn ads, in the Holly-Dirt junk on the streaming urine factors, i.e. Netflix, Amazon Studios, Hulu, and in the big lies, as Americans end up stiff arming the dictates of US Patriot Act I, II, III. Vaccine Passport. Digital Gulag Chips.

Mark Twain, who was a fierce opponent of the efforts to plant the seeds of empire in Cuba, the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, wrote an imagined history of America in the twentieth-century where its “lust for conquest” had destroyed “the Great Republic…[because] trampling upon the helpless abroad had taught her, by a natural process, to endure with apathy the like at home; multitudes who had applauded the crushing of other people’s liberties, lived to suffer for their mistake.” (Chris Hedges, source)

Imagine, all the long-term disabilities signed into law for vaccine injuries, for all the drug injuries created by those billion dollar companies (right, a joke, I know). Round-up Ready Disabilities? You betcha, will we see citizens of those countries in those areas the USA hates (Syria, Somalia, Libya, and Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Haiti, et al) get reparations, with all those USA led sanctions and life-killing embargoes, life-destroying structural violences, will they be able to get those Disability Payments? Shit! Diseases of those mountaintop removals, fossil fuel emissions, all of those injuries caused by C with a Capital Corrupt-Capitalism, is Beady Eyed Biden signing those disability payments into law?

The announcement came as the president marked the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act in a speech at the White House Rose Garden with Vice President Kamala Harris. It also comes as the long-term symptoms of the virus, what some call “long Covid,” shapes up to be a major public health issue. 

“We are bringing agencies together to make sure Americans with long Covid, who have a disability, have access to the rights and resources that are due under disability law,” Biden said during his remarks. (Source)

Wikipedia Propaganda: Early life and education — Wendy Sherman was born in Baltimore, Maryland, to a Jewish family. Her father, Malcolm Sherman, was a Marine originally from Philadelphia. While she was in elementary school, her family moved to Pikesville, Maryland, and Sherman attended Pikesville High School. Sherman attended Smith College from 1967 to 1969, and graduated from Boston University in 1971 in the field of sociology and urban studies. In 1976, she earned a master’s degree in social work from the University of Maryland. She subsequently began her career as a social worker, before going into politics.

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, the most senior Biden administration official to visit China to date, met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng in the port city of Tianjin. But China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs blasted Washington with a salvo of six statements that accused the U.S. government of trying to “contain and suppress” China, attacked the U.S. as the “inventor of coercive diplomacy,” and alleged that the root of the deadlock between the world’s two biggest economies was because some Americans see China as “an imagined enemy.”

Oh, the Beady Eyed Biden, man, it never stops: “Biden’s Crime Chief Had Screaming Red Flags on His Financial Disclosure Form; Senators Ignored Them”

What happened on July 20 with the 56-44 vote in the Senate to confirm Kenneth Polite (pronounced Po-leet) to head the most powerful criminal law enforcement office in the United States, the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice, is a cautionary tale that should concern every American. Despite Polite owing more than $1.5 million in debts according to his financial disclosure form and public mortgage records; paying over 18 percent interest on an outstanding balance on a credit card; 19.99 percent interest on a personal loan; and now accepting a job where his income will be slashed by about 77 percent – not one Senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee asked a single question about this man’s bizarre financial picture during his confirmation hearing on May 26 or in written questions that followed.

Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, Chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee. Durbin took to the Senate floor on July 20, the day of the full Senate vote on Polite, to give a glowing endorsement of Polite.

Polite hails from the law firm of Morgan, Lewis & Bochius, which has plenty of red flags itself. Polite was a partner there earning approximately $877,500 in 2020. His job at the Justice Department will pay less than $200,000 annually. Morgan, Lewis has, for decades, provided legal representation to the Wall Street mega banks. Polite’s financial disclosure form reveals that JPMorgan Chase was one of his clients over the past year.

JPMorgan Chase has racked up five felony counts brought by the Justice Department in the past seven years, including two felony counts brought just last fall. The bank admitted to all five counts. In September of 2019, the Justice Department charged that traders at the bank were running a racketeering enterprise out of its precious metals trading desk. That case, brought under the RICO statute, which is typically reserved for organized crime, is still ongoing at the Justice Department. (Source)

To explain why, we develop a theory of the “boomerang effect” to understand Mark Twain’s “natural process” through which foreign intervention increases the scope of domestic government and erodes citizens’ liberties from state coercion. The underlying logic of the boomerang effect is as follows. Preparing for and engaging in foreign intervention provide a testing ground for intervening governments to experiment with new forms of social control over distant populations. Under certain conditions, these innovations in social control are then imported back to the intervening country through several channels that expand the scope of domestic government activities. The result is that the intervening government becomes more effective at controlling not only foreign populations but the domestic population as well. Under this scenario, the preparation and execution of foreign intervention changes domestic political institutions and the relationship between citizen and government. Domestic freedom from interference and coercion by others erodes or is lost altogether as the state gains power over citizens.

It has recently been noted that “[t]oday US military operations are involved in scores of countries across . . . five continents. The US military is the world’s largest tenant landlord, with significant military facilities in nations around the world with a significant presence in Bahrain, Djibouti, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Kyrgyzstan, in addition to long-established bases in Germany, Japan, South Korea, Italy, and the UK.” The U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) is also currently carrying out various military-related activities in at least twenty countries in the Middle East and Central and South Asia, meaning that “the US has some kind of military presence in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, U.A.E., Uzbekistan, and Yemen.” This presence is not a recent phenomenon, as the U.S. government has been actively engaged in military intervention in the Middle East for over three decades with no end in sight.

Iris Varela spoke about the history of the Bolivarian Revolution and explained in detail how the economic blockade in her country works. The PSUV lawmaker concluded with an invitation for participants to visit Venezuela for the inauguration of a similar project in Caracas; “we’re opening a university to teach people reporting and social media skills, we’re cordially inviting the youth of the union federations in Chapare to come and coordinate an exchange with the Juventud PSUV, maybe in August a group can come here, and a group from here can go there. Our Bolivian brothers will always be welcome to the country of father liberator, Simon Bolivar. We need to strengthen education and build cadres who can defend revolutionary processes.”

Nieves Colque, one of the young members at the school today said of the classes, “This school of ideology and anti-imperialism helps us to grow, it’s nourishing.

Then, of course, water, fire, flood, death by a million safety net cuts, and then the Olympians are the networks, getting — how many billions does NBCV get for these absurdities, the Olympics, by 2023? $7.7 BILLION!

What we’re witnessing right now play out in Tokyo is unparalleled in the political history of the Olympics. And you’re pointing the finger in the right direction, when we think about the International Olympic Committee. The saga in Tokyo has exposed an International Olympic Committee that openly disrespects the will of locals, that brushes off inconvenient facts from experts, like medical experts, who have long been saying these games are a terrible idea. And the IOC tends to prioritize its profits over all else.

Meanwhile, the Olympics tend to kneecap democracy, undercut democracy, in ways that you describe, with the very prime minister essentially reduced to a contractual supplicant to the International Olympic Committee, with no power to decide whether to cancel or not. And you’re seeing also that everything is very vulnerable to things like COVID-19 and also, I think, climate change. So, when the International Olympic Committee arrives in the host city, it’s this parastate-type organization. But what we’ve seen time and time again, and now in Technicolor in Tokyo, is that it’s also a parasite on the host city.

There is a lot of money sloshing through the Olympic system. It just tends to slosh upwards into pockets that are already filled. NBC gives about 40% of the International Olympic Committee’s revenues. And overall, in terms of the Olympics, 73% of the revenues for the International Olympic Committee come from broadcaster fees. And I think that helps explain why they’re perfectly content to have a made-for-TV event without all those people in the stands. Of course, they’d prefer to have them in the stands, but even if they don’t, the money continues to flow into their coffers. NBC has announced that even though these games are hit with the pandemic and people won’t be in the seats, this could well be the most profitable Olympics ever for NBC because of ad sales and other measures.

The corporate sponsors provide another 18% of the revenues for the International Olympic Committee. And I think we’re seeing a really interesting divide between the corporate sponsors right now. On one hand, the sort of long-term, worldwide partners that fork over these nine-figure fees to be associated with the five rings, they’re basically playing the long game, with the exception of Toyota, which of course has strong base in Japan. The local sponsors, domestic sponsors — by which, by the way, they raised more than $3 billion from local corporate sponsors in Japan, more than ever before — they’re in a much trickier position. And I think that’s why you’re seeing Toyota basically say out loud that the Olympics have become a toxic property inside of Japan.

So, there’s plenty of money to be had. It just tends to shuffle to the International Olympic Committee, to broadcasters, to the corporate partners, as well as to real estate interests in the Olympic city. — Jules Boykoff

Oh, the great dysfunctional USA, Capitalism, etc. Think: Nazi Merkel and others in her cabinet blame the deaths of hundreds in Germany as a result of recent flooding on, oh well, “climate change and climate unpredictability . . . .”

Imagine that, the mayor of the town said:

“We have had floods in this area for centuries. We have asked for help to mitigate the floods. We have had governments not responsive to the needs of people. Blaming climate change on incompetent and heartless neoliberal governments, on the excessive hording of money, the waste and corruption of trillions, stolen, given to billionaires, to the military complex, and other Corporate and Financial Complexes, then stating these German lives could not be saved because ‘climate change is so unpredictable, and just get used to it” serves the people the words from which to raise pitchforks, juice up the Molotov cocktails, grease the shotguns, tie the ropes and sharpen the guillotines for hanging and beheading deservedly so against the elite and their bed-fellows, the Eichmann Mentality, and the fascist leanings of Capitalism. This is the response of these people who go to climate change talks, who shuttling around the world in jets for Davos and World Economic Forums, for the bootlicking foisted upon us all to the murderers, the BlackRocks’s and Blackstone’s and World Bank and Goldman Sachs. You dictate those who did not get the chemical jab of Corona Capitalism will have lesser value in society, and then those smug ones who have succumbed to the pressure for yearly or twice-yearly boosters, they too will allow the rich and fascistic governments to make excuse after excuse as governments and towns go bankrupt, and all life saving services and community rights, vanish.”

Well, he didn’t say that, of course, because I made it up and politicians do not speak about capitalism as the ultimate evil. However, one German mayor was in tears about the loss of life, and said it could have been prevented with a government and localities working together to mitigate floods. Whether once in a hundred years, or otherwise.

So, we follow the way of “Israel” — We have given up as people, this unending multi-billions in profits, mercenary, war profiteering profits these companies are stealing from the taxpayers. Like the Military industrial complex, the Big Pharma and Private Medicine industrial complexes are eating our souls. And the rot-gut corporate media and those that echo the prevailing narratives, well, they too eat our souls.

“It’s a dynamic situation. It’s a work in progress, it evolves like in so many other areas of the pandemic,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “You’ve got to look at the data.”

Last week, Israel’s health ministry reported a decrease in the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine in preventing infections and symptomatic illness. But it added that the two-dose COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer with partner BioNTech still remained highly effective in preventing severe illness.

The decline in efficacy coincided with the spread of the Delta variant, now the dominant strain in Israel.

Israel is administering third doses of the vaccine to immunocompromised people, including those who have had heart, lung, kidney or liver transplants and cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.

Pfizer and BioNTech said on Friday that the United States had purchased 200 million more doses of their vaccine to help with pediatric vaccination as well as possible booster shots.

Here a local older woman, trying to make sense of the lock-step pro-lockdown, pro-mask, pro-anticivil liberties mentality of Oregonians, and their editorial boards:

Copy of my Letter to the Editor of the Eugene Register-Guard; it has been received but not published — I usually get pleasure from wordsmith Don Kahle’s clever articles. However, in his July 16 column he encouraged incentives to get more citizens injected with an unlicensed, unapproved experimental gene procedure to lessen symptoms from a viral disease with a better than 99% recovery rate for most age groups.

A review of history is needed. In 1986, Congress passed a law that allowed pharmaceutical companies ZERO liability from damages from their vaccine products. The PREP act is the latest iteration which gives drug companies immunity from damages caused by their vaccines.

The Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System was established in 1990 by the CDC and FDA to monitor damages and deaths caused by vaccines. Although the system is voluntary and underreported, as of this writing, VAERS data showed a total of 463,457 adverse events from all age groups following COVID vaccines, including 10,991 deaths and 48,385 serious injuries since Dec. 14, 2020. Serious injuries include myocarditis, pericarditis, paralysis, neurological disorders, blood clots, irregular menstrual bleeding, and more.

Drug companies are poised to earn billions of dollars from vaccine sales, mostly paid for by our taxes. “Safe and effective” is a marketing slogan and is inaccurate. Mr. Kahle, I urge you to do investigative journalism regarding germ theory vs. terrain theory. Rather than promoting pills and injections, it makes sense that public health funds should be spent on improved sanitation, hygiene, nutrition and exercise guidance for individuals and communities and to promote decentralized, regenerative, organic agriculture on a global scale.

It’s easy to say to this person that this opinion letter to the editor will not be published since the newspaper (sic) will deem the information as faux, false, and dangerous. This is the way of the present, and no matter how “alternative” or “left” the rag, those old hippies are indeed fascists, one and all, in many cases, in this case, with the Corona Capitalism. Sick stuff, capitalism crunched all up in Big Media, Big Lies, Big Propaganda:

“Shooting Rats in a Barrel”: Did the Red-hunt Win?

These years, 1947-1950, established the ground rules that remained in force for the decade that followed. Most institutions, from the government through the unions and universities to the American Civil Liberties Union (yes, I said the American Civil Liberties Union), declared Communists unwelcome. Among the means used to exclude them were loyalty oaths, often including the phrase “I am not a member of the Communist Party or any other organization which…” It became glaringly obvious, that employers, in particular universities, would shy away from hiring anyone who might be attacked as a Communist; a reputation as a student radical was thus enough to make one a bad bet for an academic job; so student radicals became (in a few short years) very scarce. University administrators would occasionally say, if asked, that there were no Communists on the staff; but they hoped they wouldn’t be asked. The FBI and the Red Squads of state and some local police forces kept files on thousands. They had a reputation for exceeding legal restraints in interrogation and for keeping very dubious material in their files; later research bears this out. They cooperated (when it suited their own agenda) with employers who were cleansing their staffs. This put them in an ambivalent relation to the federal government in particular. The FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover, while nominally responsible to the Attorney General, sometimes cooperated covertly with Congressional exposés of government agencies.

Most universities wouldn’t even let left-wingers speak on campus under auspices of a student group! Paul Robeson, Howard Fast, and Dirk J. Struik are among those banned by administrations in the early 50s. By the late 50s, the invitations had dried up.

It was further established that one could be imprisoned for Communist Party activity itself, at least if one were a leader: the Supreme Court upheld in 1951 the conspiracy convictions against the CP officers under the Smith Act. The government maintained concentration camps in which it could incarcerate thousands of dangerous people if it declared a national emergency to exist, and everyone knew whom they considered dangerous. (These camps were invented by the “liberal” senators in 1952 in an attempt to show voters that they were just as security-conscious as the Right. But though they originated as a mere tactic, they were not merely on paper, they existed physically. I was told this in casual conversation in 1955 by an acquaintance who was employed at a federal prison — a prison, it happens, where I became an inmate five years later. The story would be better if the guard had looked me up and said hello to me then, but — sorry — we were no longer in touch.)

These words from Davis to Chris Hedges are just the same today, for MANY of us, who have been marginalized, Google Searched into the Poor House:

Though you see the remnants of the former academic left still, though some of us were never fired, though I return to the United States from my exile frequently, we are gone,” he said. “We did not survive as we were. Some of us saved our skins without betraying others or ourselves. But almost all of the targets either did crumble or were fired and blacklisted. David Bohm and Moses Finley and Jules Dassin and many less celebrated people were forced into exile. Most of the rest had to leave the academic world. A few suffered suicide or other premature death. There weren’t the sort of wholesale casualties you saw in Argentina or El Salvador, but the Red-hunt did succeed in axing a lot of those it went after, and cowing most of the rest. We were out, and we were kept out. — “The Origin of America’s Intellectual Vacuum”

Finally, read David Rovics’ blog, and he is now in Denmark playing live crowds. I feel badly for him, he being accused of antisemitism, and he is being doxxed, and his Wikipedia has been changed but “crowd-souring” folk.


Confessions of an Ecumenical Leftist

It seems a ridiculous thing to have to say, but I think intellectual discourse is generally a very good thing, rather than something to be stopped at all costs.

I’m realizing that most people who come across something I wrote don’t seem to have read anything else I’ve ever written, and haven’t listened to my music.  This post is going to be especially personal, so it’s important that you have some idea who I am first.

I’m 54 years old, and I’ve been some kind of an activist since I was 12.  I learn a little more with each passing year on Earth, but lately the pace has accelerated, along with everything else.  I was raised by musicians, and I became one myself early on.  When I started writing songs about different social movement activities and notable moments in history from around the US and the world, I started meeting more and more people from everywhere, and touring everywhere, too.  As a songwriter and performer I’ve been able to participate in social movements on an ongoing basis in a dozen or so countries, spending most of my adult life on the road, doing that.

Although the campaigners may be few, I have seen these campaigns work again and again.  You spread enough rumors, they dominate the narrative.  There are already people updating my Wikipedia entry to inform people that accusations of my alleged antisemitism are “in the news.”  Of course, they’re “in the news” because there have been news stories written about the campaign against me — not because any serious person has ever accused me of antisemitism, with any basis for their claim, aside from failing to find the antisemitic bits in a book, and wanting to talk to people with disparate viewpoints who may have deep insight into how we might prevent a fascist future in America, regardless of anything else.

Of course, Wikipedia and Google and the rest are propaganda and government run and ZIonist outfits, for sure:

Indeed, already in 2007, researchers found that CIA and FBI employees were editing Wikipedia articles on controversial topics including the Iraq war and the Guantanamo military prison.

Also in 2007, researchers found that one of the most active and influential English Wikipedia administrators, called “Slim Virgin”, was in fact a former British intelligence informer.

More recently, another highly prolific Wikipedia editor going by the false name of “Philip Cross” turned out to be linked to UK intelligence as well as several mainstream media journalists.

In Germany, one of the most aggressive Wikipedia editors was exposed, after a two-year legal battle, as a political operative formerly serving in the Israeli army as a foreign volunteer.

Even in Switzerland, unidentified government employees were caught whitewashing Wikipedia entries about the Swiss secret service just prior to a public referendum about the agency.

Many of these Wikipedia personae are editing articles almost all day and every day, indicating that they are either highly dedicated individuals, or in fact, operated by a group of people.

In addition, articles edited by these personae cannot easily be revised, since the above-mentioned administrators can always revert changes or simply block disagreeing users altogether. (Source)

Headline: “Sean Penn won’t return to ‘Gaslit’ set unless all cast and crew get mandatory Covid vaccinations”

a man looking at the camera: Penn stars as Attorney General John Mitchell in the political drama, 'Gaslit'.

On Saturday, Rolling Stone published a major scoop: Actor Sean Penn traveled to northwestern Mexico to speak with Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera — “El Chapo” — the notorious leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel. It was El Chapo’s first (and perhaps last) press interview as a free man. At the time of the visit, El Chapo was a fugitive in hiding, but the day before the article went live, Mexican marines, with support from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Marshals, captured him after “a fierce gun battle.”

Mexico’s Attorney General Arely Gomez has said that Penn’s face-to-face meeting with Guzmán “was an essential element” in the operation that led to the fugitive drug lord’s apprehension.

Look at these two multimillionaire sell-outs. White as the bare ass of an Irish baby, but they will tell the Haitians how to live, run their lives, etc. Here he is below that in Israel, loving that Israel aid (sic).


On his first visit to Israel, American actor and humanitarian activist Sean Penn declared that the work of his nonprofit J/P Haitian Relief Organization has succeeded largely because of its cooperation with volunteers from IsraAID-The Israel Forum for International Humanitarian Aid.

“The indirect impact of IsraAID is that everything that JP/HRO has accomplished would not have existed without the inspiration and support that they provided,” said Penn, the keynote speaker at IsraAID’s November 30 conference in Tel Aviv, “Can Haiti Grow? Haiti and Israel Partners in Recovery and Development.”

Following the program, IsraAID introduced Penn to representatives of eight Israeli startups that offer technologies in agriculture, water and solar power to developing nations.

Israel & Colombia: Mercenary Allies – Part 2
By Dan Cohen –For Colombians, a different Israeli is well-known for his role in the death squad rampages that have plagued the country since the 1980s. While Eitan was advising President Barco, an Israeli mercenary named Yair Klein arrived in Colombia and began training narco-paramilitaries in how to defeat the FARC insurgency.

Israel & Colombia: Mercenary Allies
By Dan Cohen — On April 6, 1984, a group of men dressed in police uniforms arrived at the home of Milcíades Contento in the town of Viotá, Colombia. Contento was a peasant, communist and member of the Patriotic Union (UP), a newly-formed experimental political party born out of the 1985 peace negotiations between the conservative President Belansio Betancourt and the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. The men seized Contento, tied him up and dragged him away.

New Investigation Reveals Role of Israeli Operatives in Colombia’s “Political Genocide”
By Dan Cohen – Known as the “Red Dance,” the systematic murder of the Patriotic Union remains one of the most extreme cases of political violence in Latin America and new evidence suggests that it was concocted by one of the most decorated spies in Israeli history. BOGOTA, COLOMBIA — On April 6, 1984, a group of men dressed in police uniforms arrived at the home of Milcíades Contento in the town of Viotá, Colombia.

Fuck Penn, fuck them all, supporting ANYTHING coming out of murderous Israel.

These two fuckers, Leonardo and Sean, combined net worth on the books, that is, a la scum-bucket lying Internet, err, $300 MILLION, but they, like the other felons in their elite perverse pool, use offshore accounts, have devalued valuable land, and a million financial scams that would make the Swiss blush.

Shmuley Boteach to honor Sean Penn

This is who Penn is, and now, everybody, he states, must be forced to have the fake vaccination for his shit show:

“He who is greedy of gain troubles his own house, but he who hates gifts will live.” —Proverbs 15:27

“As a rabbi, I am particularly grateful to the Adelsons.” —Shmuley Boteach

Shmuley Boteach promotes himself as “America’s rabbi” and “the most famous rabbi in America.” A man of many hustles, he has inserted himself as political liaison to far-right pro-Israel casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, close confidante of Senator Ted Cruz, spiritual guide to Michael Jackson, pal of Oprah Winfrey, soulmate of Eli Wiesel, buddy of Senator Cory Booker, star of his own reality TV show, and bestselling self-help author of Kosher Sex. This month Boteach scrambled between a meeting with Donald Trump, whose candidacy for president he recently endorsed, and a ritzy gala for his own organization, thrown on the solemn Holocaust Memorial Day, at which he bestowed special honors on the former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson and Yoko Ono, among other dignitaries.

Boteach has also managed to leverage his wide-ranging connections into a gig as a columnist for the New York Observer. The weekly newspaper is owned by Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, touted by her father as among his closest political advisers. Jared Kushner’s father Charles is a wealthy real estate developer and convicted felon who has contributed to Boteach’s non-profit, the World Values Network, known until recently as the Jewish Values Network.

These white monsters/devils are who the Holly-Dirt elite run with —

Over the weekend, the United States and other members of the so-called Core Group threw their support behind Henry, who will become Haiti’s seventh prime minister in four years. Monique Clesca, a Haitian pro-democracy advocate based in Port-au-Prince, says despite the polarization and turmoil in the country, it is ultimately up to Haitians to find a political solution. ​​”It is not up to the United States State Department to tell us who should be the prime minister of Haiti,” Clesca says. “It is offensive. It should not be done. It is unacceptable.”

MONIQUE CLESCA: My thoughts, in hearing — after hearing Ned Price, is, they haven’t talked to us. They haven’t — how can — such arrogance of a State Department spokesman to say they are speaking on behalf of the Haitian people. No, I believe the Haitian people are able to speak for themselves. And we have been speaking for ourselves for the last three years during this crisis, demonstration after demonstration. How many demonstrators have been killed? No one listened to what we’re saying.

And now what we’ve been saying is, “Let us pause. Let us sit down. And, Haitians, talk together, come together and find a solution.” It’s not going to be like magic that it’s going to be done. There is such polarization. There is such mistrust. But we must do this. (Source)

Here is an amazing pushback on the Jewish-run, Democracy Now —

DAHOUD ANDRE: Yeah. I want to point out first that this is exactly three years since the major uprisings that happened in the country in 2018, July 6, 7th, when the IMF had demanded that Haiti, the government of Haiti, raise fuel prices. And some of these prices were doubled. And the puppet government that Jovenel Moïse headed, they did this in the middle of a soccer game between Brazil and Belgium. And the idea was that Brazil would win and that it would be euphoria, and the people wouldn’t mind. They wouldn’t notice. They wouldn’t be — they would be celebrating Brazil’s victory. And fate had it that Brazil lost shamefully. And immediately after the game ended, uprisings all over the country. So, it’s important to note this date, this anniversary, and that Jovenel Moïse would be killed on this anniversary.

But also, I want to point out what Kim Ives is calling the revolutionary forces of the G9 and Jimmy Cherizier, these are criminals. These are people that are responsible for killing, massacres in poor neighborhoods in the country. These are people — and a lot of people find it amazing, unbelievable, that Kim Ives and his newspaper, Haiti Liberté, would be defending, trying to make people believe that these are revolutionaries — these are the people who are throwing 78-year-old elderly folks off of buildings, burning them alive — that these are the people who are going to save us.

The audience should understand, yes, Martelly was handpicked by the Clintons as a puppet, as someone who would do their bidding and join the campaign. It was obvious that the Clintons, Bill Clinton, who was running the CIRH to supposedly rebuild Haiti “back better” — same slogan that Joe Biden used in his recent campaign — that they would find that this is the person who would be — a degenerate, someone — I know that this program has done much about Martelly, so I don’t want to even go there. But what is important is that Martelly handpicked Jovenel Moïse.

And Jovenel Moïse, who was a crook, an indicted, fake entrepreneur, was put in directly by the U.S. government again. And in that position, he was a reliable puppet to, first, Donald Trump, to the point that he betrayed Haiti’s historic relationship with Venezuela in recognizing Juan Guaidó as legitimate head of Venezuela. And Jovenel Moïse had the nerve to say that with the most recent legislative elections in Venezuela, he would not recognize them because there was not enough popular participation. And this is someone who, by their own numbers, got about 500,000 votes in a country of 12 million people.

So, I need to say that the Haitian people loathed Jovenel Moïse and Martelly, the PHTK government, because they are the tools of the United States, to impose the will of the United States on the people. And they arm these street gangs. They finance these massacres in the poor neighborhoods, that are supportive of, I should say, President Aristide, the Lavalas government. And they just felt — and this was Martelly’s position — he clearly said, so long as the heavyweights — meaning the United States, the U.N., the OAS, the Core Group — supported him and Jovenel Moïse, nothing could happen to them. And this is what we have seen: the support, the unequivocal support, of the United States to the PHTK government, who was killing the Haitian people and stealing the resources of the country.

So, the largest health care system in Arizona, Banner, is forcing ALL employees to jab-up, by November, “or look for new work.” So, as one health care system goes, all the health care systems go. Mask up, Johnny Boy. This is how these culprits go.

The planned pandemic itself (and the global military deterrent exercise called “quarantine”) has only accentuated the gravity of a crisis that puts the crisis itself in crisis (by highlighting only the consequences, one can see a new and more ruthless transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich of the world, making it possible to disappear even the middle class worldwide; for under the logic of acquired debts, whether at the individual or national level, the whole world is facing an economic drain unprecedented in world history: in 2020 alone, the global unemployment rate exceeded the rates of the “great depression”, the product of a worldwide bankruptcy at all levels, for the exclusive benefit of transnationals and gigabanks, causing the debt to reach, in that year alone, 23 trillion dollars, bringing the global debt to 282 trillion, that is, 355% above the world’s GDP. This means that the world is leveraged three times over its own production, with no hope of a quick economic recovery, since production itself (and also services) are, in many countries, paralyzed; the “pandemic” continuity will only provoke new tax burdens on already unbalanced economies; for the global “economic health” to recover and not be “contaminated” with defaults, the health of the world’s population will be sacrificed.

A world does not enter into crisis by itself but because the collapse of its vital principles is what unleashes the loss of all the basic references of its own systemic consistency. If capitalism needs crises to accelerate its own dynamics of dispossession and destruction -known as development- what does it mean that we are in crisis, when the crisis has become a way of life?

I spoke with a 74 year old in a parking lot at our local food co-op. The Subaru still had that “Biden” bumper sticker, right near the exhaust pipe (man, the image of Joe Biden and Donald Trump next a spewing exhaust pipe and hot catalytic converter just don’t go away). I asked the lady why, after saying hello, with all that Biden has proven to any leftist who voted for him that Biden is as a bad a demented hombre as the rest, she would still have the insipid bumper sticker plastered on the old station wagon. She said it was her spouse’s car, that it was his idea. She and I talked about forest issues, how bad the Oregon state is, like a Florida transplant, Jew or Goy, with a hundred cancers removed from the face. She was disheartened, but felt she still had to have hope, citing Winona LaDuke. Citing the concept that we old timers have to fight and we will lose and lose, but it is for the lesson, the under girder to build momentum for younger and younger generations.

I emphasized that usually, a discussion, or my comment face to face with someone about a Trump or Biden bumper sticker, would illicit stupidity, either from a logger or from some ex-hippie or neoliberal liberal, to the point of most definitely bringing up Trump or Obama in their argument — “At least he isn’t Trump/Obama.”

That is the most meaningless statement yet, from so-called liberals, “anything is better than Trump.” There are of course hundreds of like sayings coming from the mouths of hard-core democratic party adherents. The so-called ex-hippies are the worst of the lot.

WINONA LADUKE: You know, this is a new pipeline project going in, but they’re crossing like 69 rivers, and 22 of them with this thing called the HDD, which is a super phallic, horrible drill system, the high direction drill — horizontal direction drill. And so, what happens is that they’re drilling like underneath the rivers, and they hit an aquifer, and they shoot out into — or they hit a seam that shoots out into the river, in some spring that they didn’t know about, and all of a sudden you’ve got a bunch of, like, toxic bentonite, all kind of crazy stuff at the bottom of the river.

And, you know, the thing is, is like the Shell River is a pristine river, crossed five times by Enbridge, hit by industrial agriculture like R.D. Offutt. And it has the largest mussel population in the Upper Mississippi River. It has this huge and beautiful mussel river, hence the name Shell River. And those guys don’t last through frac-outs, you know? Just the Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Interior, you know, all of these agencies are looking aside as Biden seems to approve the tar sands pipeline. And you can’t do both.

WINONA LADUKE: Yeah, sadly, Deb Haaland has not stepped up on this. And the Biden administration certainly has chained her to their position. You know, it’s tragic. You know, there’s no federal environmental impact statement on this project. It wouldn’t pass the climate test. It’s exactly — it’s even bigger than Keystone. So, if Keystone wouldn’t pass the climate test, why would this pipeline pass the climate test, let alone the water impact? This is a fifth of the world’s water. Enbridge is in the middle of the water wealth of our territory, you know, the heartland of the water. And the Army Corps of Engineers and Department of Interior, no agency has stepped up to protect the waters of the people of Minnesota, the Anishinaabe, trust responsibility, nor any of the waters of this territory.

And, you know, it’s so disappointing that the Biden administration is throwing Indigenous people under the bus, the water under the bus — you know, there’s no new water — and that everybody is tolerating more and more arrests, as if, you know, that’s how it goes these days — we just keep arresting people because we think our project’s a great thing. You know, I’m so disappointed in the Biden administration, in Deb Haaland, you know, in every agency. I’m so disappointed that they are destroying our planet so a Canadian multinational can make a buck at the end of the tar sands era. (Source)

I was asked to appear on What’s Left?, a podcast put on by three fellows, all identifying as socialist, and all concerned about the shut down of critical thinking, alternative narratives and questioning. In many cases, What’s Left? could be questioning the scientism of today’s Corona Craziness, and then looking at the madness of the Lockdowns, and then for sure looking at the censoring of medical treatments — life saving ones — by mass media, left media and by so-called leftists.

A great idea turned into a regular twice-a-month discourse with a guest and these three dudes — Eduardo, Kenny and Andy.

Here, recent shows:

  • JUL 17, 2021 — Biden’s Sleight of Hand in Afghanistan
  • JUL 10, 2021 — Abolish the Police! I Mean, Defund the Police! Never mind, Fund the Police!
  • JUL 3, 2021 — Haeder’s Reimagining Sanity – Batty Bioweapons, 5G, Star Wars
  • JUN 26, 2021 — The Lowdown on Higher Ed
  • JUN 19, 2021 — Secret Societies and the New World Order
  • JUN 13, 2021 — What is the New World Order?

Even Kenny was interviewed a while back on the show — What’s Left? interviews Kenny Zepeda on his journey from Guatemala to the United States and from liberal reformist to socialist revolutionary. Previous What’s Left? Episodes Kenny on revolts in Chile and Latin America Kenny on Climate Change Nicaragua and Fake Socialism What’s Left? Kenny Z.: The Revolutionary Road

Their first episodes dealt with myriad of issues — beginning August 2018

  • Sacrificing Everything for Nike
  • Prison Strike 2018!
  • Interview with a Pro-Capitalist Anarchist
  • What’s Left of Abortion Rights?
  • Is the U.S. Turning to Fascism?

As teachers, Andy & Eduardo have been dealing with lockdowns and Zoom doom rooms for educating (sic) youth. They are dealing with fellow teachers who have taken the Covid-19 pill that has turned them into Covidians.

They are concerned about the censorship of leftists who might question the bioweapon theories, or promulgate them, citing USA DARPA and other nefarious actors in higher ed, industry, etc.

The Jab, Star Wars, and the Bubble Net of Digital Gulags

In the new world, it is not the big fish which eats the small fish, it’s the fast fish which eats the slow fish. — Klaus Schwab

That was May 22, 2021. The episode was great, far-ranging and with my own brand of frenetic fervor, and, alas, it was taken down from YouTube:

Pulled from YouTube”: Mantra of Our Age by Paul Haeder / July 13th, 2021

I am of the opinion that people have the right to decide whether to accept vaccines or not, especially since these are experimental vaccines … My concern is I know there are risks but we don’t have access to the data … We don’t really have the information we need to make a reasonable decision.

— Dr. Robert Malone, “Inventor of mRNA Interviewed About Injection Dangers“

Now, I will give readers the entire interview I did with them, via email, here, to give the reader a decent look at three very different men and their narratives, their avocations, their work now, and what makes them tick as socialists-Marxists.

Hear no Evil, See no Evil, Speak no Evil by Gavin Mayhew

They have moved into the Fourth Industrial Revolution to what is a new world order?

For me, I was asked to handle the ungainly topics of DCovid-19 as a bioweaponized monster, possibly put into the world intentionally by USA, and then 5G and 6G, what that means to public and environmental health, and then tying in the militarization of space as part and parcel part of the pogrom.

What's Left? (podcast) - Eduardo Abarca & Andy Libson | Listen Notes

Now, I believe Andy at first gravitated to me because I am an unapologetic communist, and that is a refined term in some sense since I’m not espousing a communism that has been bastardized by USA, by the media, even by some history.

Tolerance is another buzzword, and for all those gigs I worked where I questioned the management, the deans, the presidents, provosts, the managers, the editors, et al, well, this country is propaganda central, wink and a nod, smoke and mirrors, and triangulating those who doubt the goals of management and the leadership — triangulating us out of the discussion, the discourse, hence, the death of critical debate/thinking/questioning.

Now, I don’t see on What’s Left?, 163 episodes, a deep look at some of these shenanigans, in the world, and not just Rogue State USA. Israel.

That in a nutshell is the death knell:

Here, a far-ranging discussion on Israel and on the Covid program:

Listen to  Julianne Romanello, Gilad Atzmon, and Jason Bosch go deep into “ideological and spiritual thoughts that have turned our world into an open air prison.” This sort of show, well, scrubbed, and right along the lines of looking at this concept of “chosenness, and then at the work of Leo Strauss, Athens & Jerusalem, Noahide fundamentals, the origin of Zionism and many other crucial topics most intellectuals insist to avoid…”

Better Dead Than Red Sticker & Decal - Ballistic Ink

These are the times, but they were the times for me a long time ago, when I was 13, questioning cruise ships knocking over coral reefs, or bulldozers destroying the Sonora, or the Vietnam War narratives, and it just continued every place I ended up as a worker: the people “in power” are lunatics, for the most part. On one level, sure, let’s do some trauma informed care, but in the end, this society’s underbelly  — USA, Canada, UK, Europe and Australia — has to be questioned!

Education, since all of us are educators, that is, with the What’s Left? reference, is amazingly entrenched in indoctrination and deadening of critical thinking:

Check out an interview of Andy on Left Lockdown Skeptics — “Fighting lockdown in California: A US teacher speaks”

Q & A for Paul Haeder

Paul Haeder: What is “What’s Left?” and how did it come about?

Eduardo: Oh golly… I think, for me, it started back in 2017 in the aftermath of the “Unite the Right rally” in Charlottesville as I was attempting to politically make sense of the times and debate a childhood friend of mine on a public social platform. I had watched many Oxford debates before and wanted to do something similar. I really thought my friendship was on the line. Fortunately, Andy had come along at that time and shared with me he was interested in taking our own café political discussions online. So, we had a long conversation about the idea of “What’s Left?” and it’s intention. Something we both agreed on early on was to have open, honest discussions about our personal politics and ideas. We wanted to create a space for alternative points of view that challenged the mainstream Left. We had noticed there was a growing tribalistic way of thinking on the Left that seemed to cancel all deviant political discourse. Hence, “What’s Left?” came into being.

Andy: Eduardo and I started “What’s Left?” 3 years ago.  For me, I had been politically frustrated at not having an outlet for discussing my own political ideas and thoughts that came up as events happened.  At the same time, I watched YouTube channels on groups of friends who would get together and review movies or video games.  They seemed to have fun doing that and I approached Eduardo about trying to do the same thing but with politics.  I have always enjoyed talking with Eduardo and I trusted him to be passionate and honest about his beliefs (just as I was trying to be).  It has been both rewarding and fun despite YouTube’s censorship nonsense.

Kenny: I joined the show a couple years ago. I first joined Andy and Eduardo in a conversation about the events unfolding in Nicaragua in 2018. From then on, I participated as an occasional contributor regarding Latin America related topics until I was approached to contribute on a weekly basis.

PH: “What’s Left?” is composed of three hosts. Can each of you share your background?

Kenny: I’ve been a restaurant worker and a manager at a small mom and pop restaurant in San Francisco, CA. most of my working age life. I grew up in Guatemala until the age of 12 when we emigrated to California. Much of what has informed my road to Marxism has to do with lived experiences such as migration from Guatemala to the U.S. A , my father’s dealing with immigration and eventual  deportation, attending public school in San Francisco, entering and dropping out of UC Berkeley, growing up around sex work, growing up in a U.S. backed military dictatorship in Guatemala among other things. The search for answers that actually make sense has shaped my life and led me to Marxism.

Eduardo: I was a “cross cultural kid” having lived in México with all of my tías/tíos, abuelitos and primos, then as I got older went to public school in San Francisco, CA. I would study in San Francisco then spend my rather long summers back home. It was an atypical Latino experience of back and forth. I cannot say I had the common undocumented Latino experience for most families in the USA. I mean most families are not crossing the border over skies multiple times a year. So, it shapes one in a way. But I would say my 18 years as a Jehovah’s Witness had the most impact in my life. I would read forbidden literature late into the wee hours, be curious of all things deprived of me and learned never to trust ANY person, organization or ideology claiming to be the “right way.” I will say it fulfilled my desire to be of service to others. It was just an awful sort of service of conversion. Although, I did teach many illiterate people how to read over that time. I found another way to fulfill that void when I witnessed the massive anti-war protests of 2003 and joined the school walkouts. From there it was joining many Lefty movements and campaigns, such as supporting progressive candidates. I think my skills as an organizer and activist of rallies and protests, though, were sharpened by Occupy Wall Street and protests against GMO companies. Those experiences have influenced the way I think and do things. If I had to label myself, I would say I am anarchist-leaning-syndicalist-Leftist-libertarian. If you have an issue with that mouthful, too bad.

Andy: I am a school teacher in San Francisco (who lives in Oakland).  I have been teaching science (physics and chemistry) for over 20 years.  I have been a Marxist for that long as well.  I have been in socialist organizations and active in my union over that time.  Currently, while still active in my union, I am pretty much a solo communist trying to find a political community to work with.  “What’s Left?” has been a big part of rebuilding that community.

PH: What for you are some of the more compelling topics and issues you all have covered?

Andy: I think the one episode that stands out for me is our interviews with Eric Lerner (part 1 and part 2) challenging the notion of the Big Bang as a theory that explains our current universe.  This was such a surprising issue for me and uprooted a core premise of my beliefs in an area that caught me completely off guard.  At the same time, it explained the nagging sense I had that there was some real problems with these things like dark matter and dark energy.  So these episodes, for me, symbolize the way my world has been continually shifted and uprooted as I take this political journey with Eduardo and Kenny.  It also symbolizes my attempt to use truth as my North Star, not ideology.

Eduardo: Oh there are so many. But I think I’ll go with what has recently changed me in many ways. The topics around the Internet of Things with Alison McDowell, and, what I call “my COVID journey”, the reopening schools debate as well as the vaccines. It’s been a rollercoaster and re-traumatising being rejected and attacked on a personal level from friends on the Left who disagree with everything we have recently discussed. I also realize we have to discuss unpopular topics or say more than “We oppose Trump!”.

Kenny: For me, the show has been instrumental in processing and dissecting a number of topics, but most especially everything related to the pandemic. I’ve been particularly captivated by the fast encroachment of tech into our lives and the implications it will have for dissenting working class voices.

PH: What topics would you like to cover in the future on “What’s Left?”

Kenny: I’d love to continue covering relevant topics to fellow workers, in ways that are accessible and not elitist, in the hopes that we can spark interest in thinking outside the parameters chosen by our ruling class. I would definitely love to continue tracking the implementation of the techno-fascist world being built in the name of social justice with rhetoric of inclusion. I’d love to continue processing the implications of current events outside the mainstream manufactured narratives.

Andy: “What’s Left?” has really been a labor of love, and we have pretty much been able to interview the people and cover the subjects we want. I would say that I hope that it can increasingly become a locus of organizing for me as I try to build a community of parents, teachers, activists and even students who are prepared to join me in fighting the implementation of the 4th industrial revolution in education. I also look forward to the day when Kenny

Eduardo: We have to continue covering on-the-ground worker’s experience and any significant mobilization. However, if it’s slow and there isn’t much going on currently, I’d like to delve into more labor history and revolutions. Hopefully that will inspire more workers to organize.

PH: Your channel has experienced a lot of censorship with YouTube taking many of your videos down and threatening you with “community strikes”. How has this affected your channel? How has it affected you personally?

Eduardo: The ruthless censorship of YouTube and big social media platforms is outrageous. I don’t understand how we can criticize China and North Korea for their censorship when we have it going on here as well. The recent strikes on our channel have been eye-opening. I just don’t get why it hasn’t been for others. I wish our channel could reach more people. Unfortunately, we started at a time when the play of algorithms has been used against us. On a personal level, sometimes it feels discouraging because I imagined we would reach more people. Andy and I discussed from the beginning, though, that our intention wasn’t to gain “followers” or “subscribers” for popularity contests. I just hope our political conversations reach more folks as we see people really relieved to have found us when they write to us on our blog. They feel connected and not so alone anymore.

Kenny: I suspect that regardless if we are straight up taken down, the algorithm gods will manage our content’s diffusion. In my perspective, this is only the beginning of the even more dystopian doctored sense of ‘reality”. YouTube’s censorship hasn’t affected me personally in any significant way. At least not now. I expected it in some form or another. It does shed some light into the fast approaching dystopian future. The censorship and political isolation in my community is another story.

Andy: YouTube’s censorship is bullshit. It has definitely been a disruption to getting our message out on YouTube, but from what I understand, even without the censorship, YouTube’s ‘algorithm’ has kept our channel in check. But, I think one good thing about it (if you can call it that) is that it has forced me to really challenge my beliefs in pushing me to speak my beliefs in the face of censorship or isolation. Of course, I want our channel to be seen by more people, but not at the expense of us staying true to our vision of “What’s Left?” is a place where people can speak honestly. So, I am going to stick with honesty and let YouTube decide for themselves if we can do so there. If not, I am content with the idea that we will find other places to have our discussions.

 PH:  Given the sort of culling of discussion and debate and information flow back and forth being by the elites, What would you tell students who might ask you why all the websites and podcasts and videos are coming down.

Andy: As a teacher, my political focus has always been on organizing and talking with other adults (co-workers and parents). The best way to help students organize is to be a model for them in my pursuit of getting us adults to wage a fight for our collective liberation. I have found this road a difficult one, but I do not think I can teach my students anything about the fight for our own liberation unless I engage in that pursuit with my fellow workers right now. I do talk with students who ask me about my beliefs but I rarely use the classroom as a vehicle for getting my politics out there, although I will facilitate discussions when they come up to see what students’ ideas are.

Eduardo: I think there are enough great episodes from Black Mirror to ease the conversation into the idea that we are increasingly approaching a dystopian future if we don’t organize to intervene. From there, I would share and facilitate discussions around the culling of our political freedom of speech. But I think it goes beyond the classroom. So many educators want to contain or effect change within the confines of the classroom. We have to organize together alongside them to create the change we want to see.

Kenny: I’m not a teacher/educator. I’ll sit this one out.

PH: If you were stuck with a stranger on an elevator and could only talk briefly, how would you describe the core of your political beliefs?

Kenny: I’m highly suspicious of power and strongly believe in the power of community. I think capitalism rewards antisocial behavior and it’s inherently coercive. Capitalism cannot be contained  with legislative reform as advocated by liberal ideology. I think we live in a world technologically capable of sustaining organized human life and only a socialist revolution can and must take over the wealth workers create for the good of the masses and away from the truly privileged few. Capitalism, through its inherent violent and competitive nature, cannot bring about a world of peace and abundance for the masses. Only a revolution that suppresses wage slavery and other coercive and destructive mechanisms of capitalism can change the course of the cataclysm ahead of us. The profit motive must be obliterated out of production. What we produce must serve life, NOT  profit.

Andy: I am a Communist. I believe the collective working class is the only force that can make a revolutionary change of our current system, Capitalism. Capitalism is the organized theft of our labor by a minority and is at the root of virtually all the problems we see in society today, war, racism, sexism, environmental destruction and the deep isolation and alienation all workers feel. The only way out of this is a socialist revolution that eliminates the profit motive for production and establishes  worker’s rule through mass working class democracy.

Eduardo: I am an anarchist-syndicalist-Leftist-libertarian-anti-capitalist. I don’t claim to have the answers. I don’t know what is the best approach. I am skeptical of many things. But what I do know is that the current system that we are living in isn’t working for us. It’s detrimental and we are going to suffer greatly if we don’t put a stop to this system. I believe we have to organize as workers and see that the Leftist identity politics isn’t getting us anywhere. We can’t be shutting down or shutting out other people because of their political positions. We have to challenge them and we have to continue sorting it out together… but by working together.

PH: Are you a pacifist, and if so, why, and if not, then what, and why?

Eduardo: I want to say yes. I dream of a world where our revolution could be achieved in such a way. Unfortunately, I am struggling seeing how that could become possible. The capitalist class and all people with power have waged violence on us. They have started this fight and are willing to massively destroy us if we don’t defend ourselves. I still have a lot of conflicting feelings over this topic.

Kenny: “For the oppressor, peace is the absence of a response to their violence.” I think history has been sanitized to make us believe fundamental change arrives through Disneyfied  slogans and appealing to the morality of the oppressor. Capitalism is inherently violent, and it attempts to have a monopoly of violence in the hands of the police/military  and other coercive institutions. If we pretend to rattle the cage of power, we have to be ready to respond to the unleashing of the institutions built to protect a violent system. We have to be able to contend with their monopoly of violence. My mother taught me to exhaust all the means necessary to avoid violence, but she also taught me some abusers can only be pushed out of the way by punching them in the face when you must.

Andy: No. I believe we will ultimately need to be armed to liberate ourselves from Capitalism. A class war will be necessary and I do believe violence has a role in workers’ experience of liberation (such as anti-colonial struggles or anti-occupation resistance).  We live in a system where two great classes are in opposition to each other (Capitalist and Worker), and we live under their violent boot every second of every day that Capitalism exists.  This system will require violence to uproot it.  The better we are organized, the less violence required, but we must recognize our struggle as a war if we are to understand both the stakes and the seriousness of the struggle we are engaged in.

PH: Where do you see the world in 20 years?

Andy: I believe in the possibility of working class revolution, but currently I don’t believe we will make it happen in time.  I think Capitalism is headed to its 3rd global war which will embroil China, United States, Russia, Europe, and India as the major players in a life and death struggle to see who will control the globe (and secure maximum profits, resources and markets for itself).  Unless stopped (and I believe working class revolution is the only way to stop this inevitability), we will have a war that will go nuclear and kill billions and likely destroy the world enough to push all of us back into feudal existence at best.  I think some of the sci-fi depictions we see in “The Road” or “Mad Max” are pretty good descriptors of where things are headed.  That’s what I see for us in the next 20 years unless we do something to stop it.

Kenny: I think we need a global workers socialist revolution with the most decisive battle happening in the economic north. The U.S., the world’s dominant hegemon,  is being challenged and will continue to be challenged as it overextends itself. All empires suffer a violent end. The U.S. threatens to bring the entirety of organized human life down with it. Cooperation in capitalism is only a tenuous illusion. The illusion of cooperation will be exposed as the major powers come into a competitive clash under the pressures of dwindling resources and markets.

Eduardo: It’s unfortunate that I don’t think the world will get any better if we don’t do something about it now. My view is quite grim. Alison McDowell has been on our show many times and has shown us how fast the fourth industrial revolution is accelerating. I fear we are losing a part of ourselves, our humanity. But I think we each have to continue this lucha one step at a time.

PH: Define what it means to be a human?

Eduardo: To be human is to be of service, to think, to understand we are linked and interconnected. In the USA there is a strong selfish individualistic culture. Where I am from people live together communally as families and neighbors for years, if not forever. I fear we have lost that in many ways here. I think we can only come to an understanding by building those long-term relationships to understand such values as compassion, care and love beyond our immediate selves.

Andy: Being human means being free to both express yourself, be yourself and through that find out who you truly are.  But humans are social, so society must be free to have free associations so that a community can likewise be free to find and express itself through the free participation of its individual members.  At the root of being human is being free to be yourself and free to associate with whomever best fits your true self.

Kenny: Being human is the ability to understand processes beyond our individual survival. Being human is the ability to understand how our destinies are inter-connected  with other life forms. Being human is the recognition that we are social beings and that our individual well being rests on the well being of our communities and our environment both locally and globally.

PH: What does community mean to you?

Kenny: Community is a pillar of humanity.

Eduardo: Bees come to mind. I mean I can think of many animal examples we could admire for their systems of communities. We can be more than that. I think we would not allow much of what is happening, such as the destruction of our environment, the occupation of lands and other profit-driven acts if we felt that pull and tie to one another. If we work together, if we think of all our comrades/companions, we would build a stronger and brighter future.

Andy: A community is a set of people I trust enough to be my true self with.  A community is a collection of people who make worthwhile the sacrifice of my time and abilities to make that community stronger and more able to bring the best out of all of its members.  A true community celebrates and strengthens its individual members and is strengthened and celebrated by the individuals who compose it.

PH: What have been some of your biggest influencers in your life to have gotten you where you are now? And, exactly where are you now?

Andy: Politically, my development as a Marxist who tries to blend my ideas (theory) with practice, I would say my friend, Brian Belknap, has been the most significant influence.  Personally, there are many people I could cite, but I think I would put my decision to engage in counseling over the last 15 years as the most significant decision to help me integrate my current self with my past self and integrate my political self with my personal self.  In terms of historical political influences, I would put the major ones as Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Rosa Luxemburg as the biggest influences who help me orient myself as I try to make my way in the confusing journey of trying to change the world.

Kenny: My mother has always advocated for the marginalized by putting her well being in harms ways. She influenced me by showing up for others and for justice. My mother inspired me to speak against inhumane and despicable acts and to side with the weak and abused while advocating for myself. Even though she never engages in theory, my mother has always been a communist in practice. A passionate enemy of maliciousness.

Eduardo: Oh so many… Noam Chomsky helped me make sense of world politics. How wars, greed and power trips make these empires run the world. Christopher Hitchens gave me a way to leave my former Jehovah’s Witness life. Subcomandante Marcos, from the Zapatista movement, was an inspiration early on and provided the hope that class/native action can happen. Though small, they have achieved something that you won’t find anywhere in the USA. I think these are the top three figures that have paved the way for me.

Without promotion, something terrible happens — nothing: P.T. Barnum

I talk about this a lot — the valuelessness of celebrity culture, and how rampant that disease is with corporate TV, corporate news (sic), corporate music, corporate sports, corporate entertainment in general, movies specifically. But ‘celebrity culture’ is also part and parcel the Media valorizing war criminals, left and right, and that’s not just a coke head Bush and his paint by numbers shit, or Kissinger giving Clintons a greasy kiss. Not just all the former heads of CIA, FBI, DNC, Republican Party, or x, y and z human stain who has broken the law, big time or little Eichmann like. It includes putting on pedestals the millionaires, the tech-triumphalists, anyone with a bank or company or two bits of nonsense focused on “Wall Street or Big This or Big That” wisdom (sic) in the realm of the next and the next big thing.

Back to the old adage, Gandhi, who was not perfect, no god, for sure, but, simple stuff here:

Wealth Without Work

Pleasure Without Conscience

Knowledge Without Character

Commerce (Business) Without Morality (Ethics)

Science Without Humanity

Religion Without Sacrifice

Politics Without Principle


And so it goes — the way of Facebook, Google, CGI, 80 solid years of professional marketing propagandists working with psychologists who have been working with military psy-op specialists, working with big PR firms, all the alphabet soup groups in the USA government, all those think tanks, and universities, plying their trades of pulling the next and the next big lie off, and smoke and mirrors. Neuro science mixed in with pharmacy, media, behaviorism, Pavlov, and the entire Suite of manipulations the average person succumbs to in daily life at work, at play, in school, in church, in the super store, everywhere!

Until we are here — 66% of Republicans in southern US & nearly half of West Coast Democrats want to secede from country as division grows


And does anyone want to go back to my thousands of articles and pull out the major top 100, or even 20 issues of our age and the future that we have to tackle, solve, mitigate and prepare for, yet, this is the great United Snakes of America, floundering, and the divide and conquer anthem set down by the manipulators of the world in order to spread the wealth to more and more elites, which means fewer and fewer real global Homo Sapiens.

Juxtapose that with the ultimate cruise, now, costing up to $1.2 million for a suite as part of this disgusting reality of a world gone mad — a “big trip” can also be a “big splurge.” Itineraries and prices for world cruises vary widely although the Viking Ultimate World Cruise is competitively priced, starting at $92,990 per person (a little over $379 a day). Luxury cruise company Six Star Cruises just announced one of the world’s most expensive cruise packages: a 123-day voyage across 11 countries that features overnight stays in some of the world’s most luxurious hotels, helicopter transfers, and first-class flights. The package costs a whopping $1.2 million (£1 million) per couple. To put that into perspective, that’s almost $10,000 a day.

And there are no pitchforks, no vats of hot glue or tar, no barrels of porcupine quills or feathers at every dock and corner at the ready for when these these sub-humans show their faces in public? This is what capitalism does — it numbs the collective brains of consumers, citizen zombies, the downtrodden, the sucker is born every second fool who valorizes this shit when it should be patently made illegal! But capitalism means ANYTHING is legal (again, a thousand stories of a million rip offs and forms of murder and theft and perversions and enslavement vis-a-vis capitalism), and we are in an era where fucks are fighting for their right to have “Fuck You” on their vanity car license plates, while these same fucks are fucking having fits over a soccer player kneeling, or what have you.

Then you have this capitlaist, lying untalented fool, yammering more of the CIA-Mainstream Muck lies about Cuba — fucking looney, that she would get airtime:

Fox News Flash top entertainment headlines for July 16

This is full of lies, yet this idiot gets Estefan air time: “The Cuban-born pop star wrote an impassioned plea in both English and Spanish alongside a video showing demonstrators taking to the streets in Cuba. Some of the video clips show people getting arrested by police and other acts of violence.

“My heart hurts for the Cuban people on the island & what they’ve already gone through for over 62 years. … But now they are saying ENOUGH,” the singer wrote. “Despite the beatings, the murders & incarcerations, the abuses of power, the starvation & the attempted destruction of their spirits! They need our support & that of the democratic & free countries of the world.”

The reality is so far from these millionaires’ insipid propaganda leaks. They need adult diapers for the feces they leave behind.

Here, truth —

Confronting Interference, for an End to the Blockade and Respect for Cuba’s Sovereignty

We address Parliaments, Parliamentary Friendship Groups and legislators, to spread our truth in the face of the immense and brutal political-media operation against Cuba, oriented and financed from the United States, deployed through social networks, with automated patterns with hundreds of thousands of tweets and a similar number of followers, with the intensive use of robots, algorithms, and newly created accounts for the occasion; all with the support of international media and transnational information companies.

They have incited violence, crime, disorder and social indiscipline, while totally and scandalously misrepresenting to the world our reality as part of the Unconventional Warfare oriented and financed from the United States against our country, to achieve a change in the system that freely and sovereignly elected our people, as endorsed by the Constitution approved on April 10, 2019 by 86.85% of those who exercised the vote, in a democratic election and with broad popular participation.

With absolute shamelessness, they have spread around the planet manipulated images of events that have occurred in other countries in order to reinforce, as their manuals demand, that there is no governability in Cuba, that there is national chaos, at the same time that they spread news of an internal repression that does not exist.

I just finished the Paul McCartney thing, McCarthy 3, 2, 1. Cute, in a geriatric way. Rick Rubin and Paul do some insipid reminiscing. All fine and dandy, sure. On one level, in a few activated parts of my brain, but the other parts of my brain? Yep, can’t sit still.

Sure, I am 64, Paul is 80, and well, he is worth $1.2 billion. Even Yoko Ono is worth over $700 million. Again, we spend so much time on these people, with their faltering lives, their big bangs in pop culture, all of that, all a money train straight to the elite, the few, the minority few. Again, there is no relevance in who they are, when it comes to attempting to be voices for US, the simple intellects, workers, fighters, revolutionaries, and those just struggling to make $2.5 dollars a day.

Paul did say the best concert he ever saw was in Nigeria…. That he wept at the concert — That is, he was 50 years ago watching and listening to Fela Aníkúlápó Kuti, who was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, composer, political activist, and Pan-Africanist. He is regarded as the pioneer of Afrobeat, an African music genre that combines traditional Yoruba with funk and jazz.

Look at this man. He outshines any of the white rockers, and that seems to be the case with Black musicians, Africans, Afro-Caribbeans, African-American, any of them:

So, being a communist, a revolutionary, a radical, an outcast, sure, I enjoy those silent moments, music being one, a universal connector, yes. But when you think of the money stuffed into these celebrities’ pockets, and then their managers’ brief cases, then their publicists’ bank accounts, and the record companies’ coffers, this is what has destroyed the world, really — watching people make music when we all can make music, art, dance, drama, literature. And then, they come off as spokespersons for the world. Estefan? A fool, uninformed, stupid and a tool of those thugs in Florida.

More tripe — Biden and Republicans!

“We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime,” read a statement from the White House. “The Cuban people are bravely asserting fundamental and universal rights…The United States calls on the Cuban regime to hear their people and serve their needs at this vital moment rather than enriching themselves,” it added.

But even this unqualified support for the demonstrations was not enough for many in the Republican Party, who presented President Biden as a secret communist sympathizer. Mayor of Miami Francis Suarez demanded that the United States intervene militarily, telling Fox News that the U.S. should put together a “coalition of potential military action in Cuba.” Meanwhile, Florida Congressman Anthony Sabbatini called for regime change on the island and demanded that the U.S. execute the communist leadership.

The explicit goal of the American blockade — active since 1960 — is to “decrease monetary and real wages, to bring about hunger, desperation and [the] overthrow of [the] government,” in the words of then-Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs Lester D. Mallory.

“The U.S. has overtly and continuously said that the goal of the embargo is to destroy Cuba’s economy so that the government will collapse. So it’s not just reasonable, it’s obvious that the U.S. has some kind of hand in this,” Professor Aviva Chomsky, of Salem State University and author of “A History of the Cuban Revolution,” told MintPress.

Any sane person can go to one of hundreds of news (sic) aggregator sites, and pick up on limitless hubris, misinformation, fake news, and just a snap-shot of the deformed thinking and perverse actions of people tied to war-capitalism, tied to the sinking ship of fools that is USA Empire.

Fun stuff for me is a bloke living in New Zealand wrote me and thanked me for my writing, and, well, we have had a back and forth email thing. I won’t divelge who he is, but in a nutshell, he is 64, like me, and had had his days in LA, in Idaho, and Germany and other places. He’s brewing beer in NZ. He offered to have me come over and throw in on rehabilitating his 110 year old building for his brew-pub.

Around ’82 or so I was in a book store, Book Soup, on Sunset Blvd. with my girlfriend – and soon to be first wife – VM. I saw a book with a cool looking military jet (SR-71) on the cover and it got my attention. Don’t judge a book by …. you know.

It was “Deterring Democracy”. I had by chance discovered Noam Chomsky.

Deeper I fell into what was becoming a passion for learning about man’s inhumanity to man – and to women.

I realize now that this has been going for over 40 years! I’m 64 now. Time flies!

Hey this is just a flow of stuff and I am not a writer so you’re on your own as far as this rant making any sense.

Anyway the reading led me to stumble on sites like Counterpunch a few years back. Finding a mistake in one of his articles I contacted Jeffrey St. Clair and started a brief dialogue with him. On a road trip through Oregon I had planned to stop by and say hi but, you know how things go sometimes… No time for side trips on that journey.

A lot of the stuff I found at Counterpoint resonated with me and just made me search for more and eventually I built this big list of bookmarks. Dissident Voice is one I hold in high regard. I had a great idea during lockdown about a “Peoples Great Reset”. I contacted Colin Todhunter and discussed briefly my idea with him. Nice guy that Colin. He encouraged me to go forward. Of course as usual, life got in the way and I got busy making a living and the moment slipped by. Every idea has its’ moment and they don’t always occur at the perfect time.

That’s not too big a deal because when I encounter issues that burn in me and build concern enough for me to act, I usually can just wait a day or three and keep my eyes open while reading, and someone somewhere will feel the same way and will do something about it. The pressure diminishes when I find others are just as exercised as I am. Go figure.

I don’t recall where I ran across your work but it was a while ago and I liked the flow.. Then later, I saw something you wrote about signs on peoples lawns during election time in the  Trump days and how polarized things were getting in the Northwest. A car was damaged I think? That sound familiar? I also found one of yours about getting the land for Dodger stadium and the people living in Chaves Ravine. That’s the one I sent to my brother in law. Was that you?

1) White multimillionaires working for billionaires who work for multibillionaires whose main objective is total control of all forms of human exchanges, from school, to family, from work to recreation, from medicine to nutrition, all of it, through their evil orifices.

What do we give the world now, those of us in the 80 percent in Western countries, 90 percent in other countries? Strong, single-doze Nazi eliminating cyanide capsule at the ready for the moment of voluntary (extinction)?

That’s where we are at — more and more people realizing there is no Bruce Willis or Arnold Schwarznegger or Wonder Woman or Batman to come to the rescue. And rescuing is what this entire world is in need of, but first, damn the rich, damn the banks, damn the militarists, damn the lawyers, damn the banks again, damn the hedge funds, damn the real estate folk, damn the insurance companies and damn the monopolies.

After a stint in the army, Knight started reading books about how overpopulation would imminently lead to food shortages and famine (a thesis soon disproved, of course, by the Third Agricultural Revolution). He joined a movement called Zero Population Growth, which wanted every couple to stop breeding after they’d had two children, and at 25 he secured himself a free vasectomy by letting a student doctor use him for practice. But eventually, Knight decided that simply limiting human population growth would never be enough: even a much smaller human population would continue to crowd and defile everywhere it occupied. And so, in the late 1980s, after settling in Portland, Oregon, Knight founded the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. “Our message is simple,” he claims, “we encourage people to stop procreating so the biosphere might return to its former glory, and everyone already here will be able to live life more abundantly.” (Source)

This is what Bill Gates, Kissinger, the Israeli Jews, World Economic Forum, and so many of the other elites, eugenicists, the Trumps or Bidens, Clintons or Obamas, want. Every leader at the Aspen Conference, all those Davos Dillingers, all the people on foreign affairs councils, this or that ancient or not-so-ancient lobby or group run by the Rockefellers, BlackRock, Blackstone, Goldman and Sachs, you name it, they want useless eaters, breeders and breathers gone. Ended. Taken out. Forever extinct!

But not gone before they can squeeze every last dime out of us, and our progeny and their progeny. We have these lunatics like Wyatt Earp going into space, we have more wealth made by billionaires during the planned pandemic than anyone in the mainstream could imagine. Faltering housing, fault lines in our infrastructure like Grand Canyons, food systems/farms drying up, no fuel for firefighting tankers, but plenty for Ships Ahoy, war games, endless container ships, endless DoD bullshit. Imagine, that is the Biden-Trump-Obama-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Reagan moment: a society, all the states, thousands of municipalities, on the ropes. All the huffing and puffing caused by capitalism.

Here is how it works — I just interviewed for two different jobs: housing case manager and family navigator. WOrking with housing insecure people in Oregon, in this rural county, in this place where the sea hits the sun and a shit-load of tourists, but no housing. All the STR’s (short term rentals) with dozens of folks partying in a three-day loves fest putting big time pressure on the communities septic and sewage and water and road systems. No housing, and alas, the job with the nonprofit is to work with people who qualify for Section 8 (HUD) housing, yet, well, no housing, waiting lists of three or more years, and a need growing and growing and growing. The other job is working with families/parents in the CPS system — child protective services. Helping them stay out of the cycle of losing children to foster care. Navigating.

We all need navigators in this cirrhosis society, daily –fined, triple taxed, repossessed, evicted, penalized, fees stacked up two stories, add-ons, tolls, service charges, tickets, court costs, and, well, so much more. Try getting through the medical system. Try getting through Social Security. Try getting a sty taken care of. Try getting the car serviced without being ripped off. Try just living in the PT Barnum world of everyone is a sucker, and everyone has a right to rip you off, buyer beware, too bad for granny losing her trailer to a scammer.

Want to save the planet Earth? This bizarre movement believes voluntary  human extinction is the only solution!

These jobs, for me, 64 going on 65, are 18.00 an hour gigs, one is part-time, so no benefits, and, the other, well, 8 to 5, on my own, dealing with some really abused, desperate, end-of-their-rope people. But I am doing god’s work, so many say. Imagine that crock of shit.

I’m quickly penning this because I got a call from my daughter, who I have written about recently here and elsewhere. She is in Spokane, she has friends getting evicted or with rents going up. The fires around her city, in Washington State, tankers being grounded, and one big tanker out of commission for the Pacific Northwest. Imagine that, the Big Bold Credit Card Joe Biden, and his elites, the poison ivy leaguers, the bankers, the rich and those with family connections, bold people, lovers of capitalism, lovers of neoliberalism Imagine that, no food system security, no water delivery security, no medicine, no electricity security. It is a two bit Jerry Springer show on every level.

Hell, why not a postal employee? That too I have applied for, at, yes, $18.97 an hour. Working 50 hours some weeks, on call, flex, wherever needed. Yet, in the news, more small post offices in this county and in rural counties in Oregon, closing. Again, third world traveler, man.

I disagreed with many things my old man thought and did during 31 years in both AF and Army, enlisted and then officer. But, he was always for the USPS, always for free health care, always for free or near free higher education, always for unlimited and more in number libraries, and for systems in place to protect granny from being ripped off, by, well, hundreds of scammers. Throw the lock and key away for people like Trump and Biden, but, oh, when they become (sic) commander in chief, well, my father played that patriotic card. He was out and out against monopolies, and he came from German roots, farmers moved to South Dakota and Iowa. Turning in his grave, man: “Investigation shows scale of big food corporations’ market dominance and political power”

World’s largest firefighting plane grounded as the West braces for another destructive wildfire season

This is it, man, USA capitalism. No second, third, a dozen tankers in the ready? Oh, Bezos and Musk and Branson, all those space shots, all those container ships, all those military pieces of junk, all of it, that’s what we need, yet, our flimsy Trump-Biden world is littered with this shit. Trump, now in Florida, where the mayors of cities there want the USA to murder, bomb, invade, well, Cuba. Imagine that! To bit USA.

Yet, I’ll hear these shit-faces like Matt Taibbi or Glen Greenwald or any number of others citing Tucker Carlson as some sort of centerfold for freedom of the press. All the dead-end mainstream media they attack, sure, dead from the neck, but these fellows in the news and yammering on about who writes the news and parsing the news readers, they are again, Romans fiddling in their underwear while entire systems and fabrics of their own communities BURN.

I try to tell my daughter that, yes, I failed on the teaching perseverance front with her, and that she is wired differently, and that an empath is a very tough person to be. Every slight to humanity, or animals, she take personally. I did too, but I was a blazing journalist, educator and general muckrakers. For a 25 year old who despises the racist country, sees the disgusting ways of the rich, has to see one white man/white woman gain political power after another, she is not exactly in a great place to “compete tooth and nail, arm to arm, pistol against pistol, rip-off scheme after rip-off scheme” in this polluted society.

Now of course a large swath of people in USA laugh at these images below, and there is no hiding the fact that the Republican party is one sociopathic sick pukey party, and the democrats are major war mongers and capitalists. For how many generations have the white people laughed at civil rights movements, laughed at our Indian brothers and sisters being slaughtered, laughed at the slaves and children and great-great-great child of slaves. Business as usual!

Stressed about climate change? Eight tips for managing eco-anxiety | New  Scientist
Climate Crisis: More Than Half of US Teens Afraid, Poll Says

World-renowned linguist and political dissident Noam Chomsky, in a public conversation we [Amy Goodman] had in April, we talked about climate change, nuclear weapons, North Korea, Iran, the war in Syria and the Trump administration’s threat to prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. We also talked about Noam Chomsky’s new book, Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power. Hundreds of people packed into the First Parish Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for our public conversation.

Amy Goodman: I wanted to ask you about this comment that you made that the Republican Party, you said, is the most dangerous organization in world history. Can you explain?

Noam Chomsky: I also said that it’s an extremely outrageous statement. But the question is whether it’s true. I mean, has there ever been an organization in human history that is dedicated, with such commitment, to the destruction of organized human life on Earth? Not that I’m aware of. Is the Republican organization—I hesitate to call it a party—committed to that? Overwhelmingly. There isn’t even any question about it.

A couple of weeks ago —about a week into Trump’s term, the clock was moved again, to two-and-a-half minutes to midnight. That’s the closest it’s been since 1953. And that means extermination of the species is very much an—very much an open question. I don’t want to say it’s solely the impact of the Republican Party—obviously, that’s false—but they certainly are in the lead in openly advocating and working for destruction of the human species. I agree that’s a very outrageous statement. So I therefore simply suggest that you take a look at the facts and see if it has any merit or if it just should be bitterly condemned. That’s up to you. My view, the facts are pretty clear.

Listen to Hudson. This is the reality of this perverse economic system. Listen!

Hudson: You mentioned that financiers write the rules for their own benefit. These rules are called constitutions and bodies of law. Pro-financial laws have been the distinguishing feature of Western civilization since classical antiquity. That represented a sharp break from earlier Near Eastern practice. Greece and Rome didn’t have kings, at least after the kings were overthrown by Rome’s oligarchy early in its history. So the elites succeeded in blocking the tradition of Near Eastern monarchies cancelling personal debts and preventing an oligarchic financial class from emerging.

That is what makes Western civilization so different from everything that went before. Because without kings, without strong central government, or what the Greeks called tyrants, the oligarchy gained control, and managed democracy by a number of political tricks. Like the pro-boule in Athens, the Roman Senate could decide what the public assembly was allowed to discuss. Rome’s oligarchic constitution let everybody vote, but a rich landowner’s vote counted for hundreds of times more than the vote of most people. It was much like the United States today, where the donor class’s campaign contributions to U.S. politicians far overshadow what most voters want. The political rules in the United States reflect the donor class rather than democracy, just as in ancient Rome.

Jussi: Okay, then we take the other way around: What do neoclassical economists say the role of government is?

Hudson: To disappear and relinquish its power to the banks and the One Percent. The only role of government is to do what it did in Rome: to assassinate popular leaders who advocating cancelling the debts or redistributing the land. The role of the state for neoliberals is to protect the oligarchy from the people, to prevent real economic democracy and roll back everything that the 19th century was fighting for: creating a parliamentary democracy in order to free economies from the rentiers. You roll back reforms. Essentially they want neo-feudalism, so we don’t have to call it fascism. We can call it neo-feudalism. They want to put things the way they were back in the 12th century.

Jussi: Wow, it seems like it’s going backward, to say the least. So, what should the economy’s role be, according to classical economics?

Hudson: Well not only according to, but in reality. It should prevent rent seeking. The basic idea of an efficient economy is to minimize unearned income, because somebody has to pay this unearned income. If you have landlords charging whatever they want, if you have banks inflating the price of property – so that people have to pay in America up to 43 percent of their income for a government guaranteed mortgage – then you’re going to be priced out of the world market. So a good economy would prevent rent seeking. It would tax away the economic rent, which otherwise would be pledged to the bank, and it would regulate monopolies. Most important money and credit should be public utilities. So it shouldn’t be privatized.

The problem today is the rentier sectors: landlords, monopolists, and the oil and mining natural-resource rent recipients. All these sectors are backed by the banks. It’s the banks and the financial sector that are the mother of trusts.

If you keep money and credit in the public domain then credit will be extended for purposes that actually help promote prosperity, not that counteract it. Government money creation by deficit spending is spent into the economy for labor, for industry to build infrastructure, for productive purposes. Privatizing bank credit siphons off income from the economy. At issue is what’s going to be the priority: the host or the parasite? Governments should help the host, not the parasite.

I let my daughter know that there are billions of people who do not buy the USA, who despise the elites’ agendas, and millions in the USA who do not buy capitalism. We are in a Gulag, like what we might call a digital prison of the near future: we have always been in the prison of debt, and the point zero zero one percent are working for the one percent with the 19 percenters, Eichmann’s, big and small, destroying people, planet, life.

Three youth activists explain why they are striking for climate justice

There is no planet “b/let it” be for us, but the Theil and Musk and Gates and Bezos types, there will be transhumanism, muck on the moon, and madness on mars. Their goal is living without useless eaters, breathers and breeders! Whitey on Mars!!

SONG OF THE DAY Gil Scott-Heron – Whitey on the Moon |

Lyrics — Whitey on the Moon

A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face and arms began to swell.
(and Whitey’s on the moon)

I can’t pay no doctor bill.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)
Ten years from now I’ll be payin’ still.
(while Whitey’s on the moon)

The man jus’ upped my rent las’ night.
(’cause Whitey’s on the moon)
No hot water, no toilets, no lights.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)

I wonder why he’s uppi’ me?
(’cause Whitey’s on the moon?)
I was already payin’ ‘im fifty a week.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Taxes takin’ my whole damn check,
Junkies makin’ me a nervous wreck,
The price of food is goin’ up,
An’ as if all that shit wasn’t enough

A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face an’ arm began to swell.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)

Was all that money I made las’ year
(for Whitey on the moon?)
How come there ain’t no money here?
(Hm! Whitey’s on the moon)
Y’know I jus’ ’bout had my fill
(of Whitey on the moon)
I think I’ll sen’ these doctor bills,
Airmail special
(to Whitey on the moon)
