Korea

Korea is back into the news as a possible “new” war. For those who are sketchy on the details- here’s a brief summary. Similarly after the war in Europe, Korea was occupied by the Soviets and Americans after being “liberated” from Japan. The partition divided Korea on the 38th parallel. On June 30, 1950 North Korea overran South Korea resulting in American and South Korea forces occupying a small tract of land on the tip.
Much like the illegal trading prior to 9/11, “Someone had dumped large amounts of soybeans on the Chicago market to force the price down, while holding bigger amounts in soybean futures. The speculation began in mid-June and was targeted specifically for big selloffs at the end of the week before that fateful Sunday, June 25, 1950. The Commodity Exchange Authority later said that by June 30, fifty-six Chinese held nearly half of all open contracts for July soybean futures—all “on the long side,” meaning they were playing for a rise in price.” according to I. F. Stone’s “The Hidden History of the Korean War: 1950-1951.”
Bruce Cumings in the preface asserts “I. F. Stone at the time correctly named T. L. Soong, brother of fabulously wealthy T. V. Soong, and brother-in-law of Chiang Kai-shek. Furthermore, according to several sources, Senator Joe McCarthy profited from the soybean corner. Drew Pearson wrote in his diary, “McCarthy was buying soybeans” at the time when “the Chinese Nationalists did just about corner the market before Korea”; Stone said McCarthy had “a successful flier in soybeans” later on in 1950.”
Note that all of these futures bought were in advance of North Korea’s attack on South Korea, which the United States publicly stated were a surprise.

WWII: Desert Air War

World War II fascinates many folks as it probably was the last war where there was some justification for so many lives lost, so many civilians killed, and so much destruction in a cause that united a world against total aggression.
Unique among WWII books is the “Desert Air War” by Richard Townshend Bickers. Most war books are a droll recounting of battles in the air, sea and land without any sort of relevance of background. Bickers gives us, at least from a British point of view, a brief history of the Middle East from ancient times to the WWII era. This is important for many reasons as history is not a blank slate, but rather a series of events that affects the future in ways that shape how we understand and digest key moments.
Some background should always be the focus of any author, however brief and tidy. Today it is hard to understand and get perspective on what our ancestors lived through. The one thing we must note is how easy it is to advance warfare technology but even harder to actually bring about social justice.
One anecdote that Bickers cites concerns the background of the air commodore chosen to head British operations in Egypt.
Raymond “Collishaw, a burly and rumbustious extrovert, was not without his idiosyncrasies. As a young squadron commander in Flanders during the First World War he had delighted in a ruinous game played when dining in another squadron’s mess: swinging on the cross beams of the wooden hut and collapsing the roof. In 1917 he had survived a mishap that would have been fatal ninety-nine times out of a hundred. In combat at 16,000ft with three German Albatros fighters, he had made a manoeuvre so violent that his safety strap broke and he fell out of the cockpit of his Sopwith Triplane. He grabbed the two centre struts and hung, with his legs trailing in the slipstream, as the “Tripe” dived with full power until it suddenly nosed up, stalled and began to spin. Managing to get one leg into the cockpit, he hooked the stick back with his foot and, as the aircraft began a sudden climb, he fell back into his seat.”

nazis

What’s always important is to see just what our society promotes. I looked at many definitions of Nazi in multiple dictionaries- about the worst I saw was “inflexible.” There was nothing about an aggressive mindset .to destroy perceived enemies of which war is the most insidious as the Nazis also added planned genocide to the mix. The WWII era Nazis invaded numerous countries by Blitzkrieg in which they destroyed everything military or civilian in their path. Behind their war machine they had special units of the SS who either killed, rounded up civilians for their slave factories or sent the remainder- the aged, women and children to concentration camps. Is this the kind of mentality that we want to promote for freedom of speech, the right to bear arms in the United States?

cucks

The alt-right comes up with all kinds of terms designed to make folks think the regressive way of thinking is superior to any other out there. One of those is “snowflakes” which is what the Nazis called the ashes floating in the air from the ovens during WWII when they were incinerating Jews and others.
And then we have “cucks”- which basically is a condescending term designed to make the opposition seem inferior to the “superior” ideology of fascism. In case you just fell off the turnip truck, the idea of subjugating yourself to any ideology that sets up a very small minority as superior goes against every possible principle of democracy and human decency. People who want everyone to have a decent life are somehow “inferior.”
Reality is different. Anyone with a neuron firing periodically should see that the elite and their octopus corporations are stealing the labor and well being of each and every one of us. It’s done through endless wars, pollution of the environment and paying wages that no one can possibly live on. Racism, misogyny and outright hatred are just how all this is accomplished. Yet, there are folks who cheer their own destruction, who see themselves as unworthy of the slightest amount of human decency and respect and who falsely believe they are somehow “superior” because of some ideology.

art

As many of you have noticed I’m a big fan of Eno. The appeal to me as having once been an artist, somewhat of a musician and numerous other pursuits in my life is that he represented along with Bowie and even Iggy Pop an artistic vision of entertainment and therefore self discovery that is multi-dimensional instead of a one trick pony. This is an important direction for mankind that bleeds over into other areas such as environment, economics and yes, even politics. I think it is important to strip away pre-conceived notions of what a profession and hence what an individual contributes to society. The joke about capitalism is that there is no room for thinkers, for dreamers unless you are making money for your masters. My vision of life is that we are here to enjoy ourselves, our family, our friends, and even others we don’t personally know, not cogs in some machine that grinds up bodies and spits out hamburger. That vision of life colors what I see, what I hear and what I say. In short, achievement is not a profit/debit world but one where the experience of life itself is to be celebrated not looked upon as drudgery…

troll

In the coming weeks, months and years, we can expect to see more trolling taking place by both paid and unpaid trolls. The Trump supporters are fairly easy to spot since they start with a post that is something like “Do you support Trump?” or Trump is the greatest thing since sliced bread or some such. They have been mostly posted by some account in Europe such as Moldavia or whatever. But it would seem they are recruiting Americans to spread their propaganda and infiltrating leftist groups and pages. I’ve encountered quite a few who’s signature thesis is that “libtards are turds” or some such as if calling me a name will make me as angry as they seem to be. They are not interested in discussing issues but more interested in pushing buttons. The modus operandi of the regressives has always been to spread lies and innuendo all based on Fox, Limbaugh, Milo and Brietbart. In turn, these are models based on the Nazi Germany era propaganda machine who whipped up anger towards Jews, gays and whoever else didn’t share in their myopic view of life and is cunningly designed to piss people off.
The neoliberal/neoconservative is a little more difficult to spot in that the message is more positive. A typical approach is to post a picture of a soldier and say something like “Do you support our troops?” A more honest question might be something like “Do you support our troops while they are bombing, killing and injuring and invading countries and cheering on the ruining of innocent peoples’ lives?”
The progressive movement doesn’t have a more prominent face than Bernie Sanders. And before you get all excited one way or another Bernie has many flaws, especially in foreign policy, but his domestic positions are much better than any politician in the country. Bernie has been attacked repeatedly, often unfairly, by both the GOP and Demos who’s agenda should be obvious to anyone with two neurons firing at the same time.
Just this year there was an article on businesses in China where they used 10.000 cell phones at a time to beef up social media stats. This “business” is no doubt here in the United States tucked away in some corporate complex.
So what I am saying is that it is up to each individual to discern what is important to you and judge not only the message but the messenger by the content they post or refer to. We are constantly bombarded with “the lesser of two evils” since no one or nothing is perfect in this flawed universe.

ReppingRhetoric

Now that everybody is getting so medieval over an “alleged Bernie supporter” taking potshots at congressmen who have advocated no gun control, even for the mentally ill, let’s look at our president’s quotes on violence.

Quotes by Donald J. Trump on violent rhetoric:

“I’ll beat the crap out of you.”
“Part of the problem … is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore.”
“The audience hit back. That’s what we need a little bit more of.”
“In the good old days this doesn’t happen because they used to treat them very, very rough.”
“Try not to hurt him. If you do, I’ll defend you in court, don’t worry about it.”
“I’d like to punch him in the face.”
“Knock the crap out of them.”
“Maybe he should have been roughed up.”
“I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or if other people will.”
“Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

And then there’s always the sycophants who mimic President Trump’s rhetoric by-

GOP House candidate Robert Lowry held a campaign event at a Florida gun range in October 2009, where he fired gunshots at a silhouette that had his opponent Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s picture printed on it.

“You know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies.”
Sharon Angle

“If I could issue hunting permits, I would officially declare today opening day for liberals. The season would extend through November 2 and have no limits on how many taken as we desperately need to ‘thin’ the herd.”
Brad Goerhing

“Get on Target for Victory in November. Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office,” read an advertisement for the event called “Shoot a fully automatic M16 With Jesse Kelly.”

“Don’t retreat, instead- RELOAD!” Sarah Palin after circulating a map with crosshairs over lawmakers who supported the ACA

“You know but other than me going over there with a gun and holding it to their head and maybe killing a couple of them, I don’t think they’re going to listen unless they get beat.” John Sullivan

The Demos

Recent revelations from Hillary should put to rest any of her Hillbots’ claim that Berniebots and Greens destroyed her campaign. The book “Shattered” on the inner workings of the Clinton 2016 campaign gave an inkling of what was a disaster in the making.
Now with her denunciation of everybody in the Democratic Party to the final nail on the coffin- the DNC, she is burning bridges faster than the retreating Nazis in WWII. The DNC has its own can of worms to deal with and is being sued in court for denying Sanders as the rightful nominee. The DNC showed its own “true colors” by their lawyers stating they didn’t even have to follow their bylaws and could nominate anyone they wanted.
I can only come to one conclusion- the corporate interests who have gained control of the Democratic Party want to see its collapse. With no opposition, the Republican Party, truly a minority and oppressive party, can cruise to election victory after election victory as they purge voter rolls, change party affiliations at will as the Democrats have done, and Gerrymandered districts to better take advantage of their voting core. Unless, the independent voters can mount a clear voter offensive by bringing 70-80% to the polls, we are clearly well on our way to an overt fascist America.

reaction

To understand how our world and the universe works, you have to always keep in mind that everything is reactionary. By that I mean we are all “chasing the action.” For example, you can pass all the laws you want, but you will always have to prove someone broke the laws well after the fact. That’s exactly how organized crime works, how corporations can do anything they want, how governments can invade and bomb any country they want, because by the time we all figure out what has been done, it takes political will to solve or stop the crime that is lacking in our society today.
You can complain “until you are blue in the face” as my mother used to say but it does no good unless you put the “fear of God” into the criminals that run our society. Individuals have to organize themselves into groups, unions and organizations that will demonstrate, boycott and shut down the machine politics we endure every day. Until that happens, nothing will change anything…

If you take some time and step back and stop your anger towards your political opposites, you might see how your views are exploited by mainstream media, corporations and government.
The emphasis on such political views are used to discredit the polar opposites of whatever political stances you might have that affects how you think and what you vote.
Issues that really have no bearing on the way government should be are elevated to a front row seat, while issues that affect everyday lives are ignored. Our founding fathers realized that the secularization between religion and governance would nip most conflicting political views in the bud.
Issues that really should matter the most, such as economics and the environment, are pushed to the back burner in favor of the divisive politics such as race, abortion and sexuality. Elites understand this all too well- they know if they can get the mentally challenged constituent to focus on policies other than economics and its sister, the environment, they can pick our collective pockets with impunity. Yet people fall for that perpetual game.
All this is done in the name of “freedom” which people don’t understand that “freedom” for some only restricts everyone’s ability to live a good life. Many folks think that not only do they have to disagree with another, they must punish their opposites with draconian laws of hatred to restrict others of their “freedoms.”
