I apologize for my last post, but I want people to avoid going through similar experiences.
Always remember that cops hate you. If you disagree with me, then don’t cry when you become the prey.
I going to jump around between several topics…
Corporate censorship continues to accelerate. Google has purged 150,000 videos from YouTube during the last several months. On 4 Dec 2017 Google announced that it would hire 10,000 more people to continue targeting videos for removal. Videos that question war, imperialism, and neoliberalism. Google is also working to improve its automatic computer-purging.
In August 2017 YouTube began removing photographic and video documentation of U.S.-sponsored war crimes, terminating some 180 accounts, and purging countless videos from other channels, including footage uploaded by Airwars of civilians murdered by U.S. coalition air strikes.
On 30 Sep 2011 the Obama regime used a drone missile to murder Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen who the U.S. never charged with any crime. Two weeks later the Obama regime murdered Mr. Awlaki’s 16-year-old son Abdulrahman al-Awlaki (also a U.S. citizen). YouTube had 51,000 videos about this. All were purged in November 2017. The New York Times praised the mass censorship as a “watershed moment.”
WordPress has purged two of my own blogs in the past without telling me why. (One of the advantages of having a tiny audience is that the censors don’t notice you as quickly.)
Let’s lighten the mood. Maybe with some satirical images.
The murderous dwarfs that rule the Empire are furious about their defeat in Syria, so they banned half of the Russian contingent from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, and all Russian athletes from the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea (9 to 25 February 2018).
Not that it matters much. Does anyone watch the Olympics anymore? Why sit through endless commercials when you can watch the highlights on YouTube? (Assuming they have not been purged.)
The Empire’s campaign to humiliate Russia has caused average Russians to become more united than ever, and made Vladimir Putin more popular than ever. Putin has the world’s highest approval ratings if any national leader (85% according to the New York Times). Most of Russia cheered when Putin announced (6 Dec 2018) that he would run for re-election in 2018. Another six-year term will take him to 2024.
On 5 Dec 2017 Sen. John McCain called for Russia to be banned from hosting the FIFA World Cup, which is far more prestigious than the Olympic Games, and which involves far more money. The last World Cup (2014) was in Brazil. The final game between Germany and Argentina had 913 million viewers worldwide. (Nearly one in seven of all humans on earth.)
The next FIFA World Cup will be in Russia (14 June to 15 July 2018). This deal was made in 2010. The Russian games will be in 12 cities in Western Russia, in 16 stadiums, 13 of which have been newly constructed for the FIFA games.
I doubt that Sen. McCain and the Empire will be able to stop this one. There’s too much money involved, and it only happens once every four years. And as I said, the FIFA World Cup is far more prestigious than the Olympic Games. It is the world’s most watched sporting event.
(McCain has terminal brain cancer. I wish he would give us some peace. I’m not big on warmongers.)

A post on Bill Moyers’ blog titled “The Republican Long Game” says, “The object of tax reform is to create a gigantic deficit to justify ending the New Deal.”
Republicans have long dreamed of destroying the social safety net once and for all. This tax bill threatens to accomplish their plan. The House and Senate bills will both increase the deficit by more than a trillion dollars. But rather than admit their hypocrisy, Republicans deny that a trillion dollars will actually be added to be the deficit. They claim that the resulting economic growth from tax cuts will take care of it. But if necessary they will cut government programs to keep the deficit under control.
If we really want to thwart Republicans, we should stop ignoring those who have explained that the U.S. government does not run on loans or on tax revenue (Bernanke, Greenspan, Trump, and others). We would admit that the only problem with the federal deficit is that it is too small. Since we refuse to do this, we allow Republicans to get away with their attacks. Therefore the correct party to blame is US.
Democrats will protest. They may even be in power. But they will be handed an untenable situation, having to choose between deficits and programs.
Yes because Democrats will continue to lie just like Republicans, falsely claiming that the U.S. government runs on loans and tax revenue.
In effect, Democrats are being set up. You can already hear Republicans saying we can’t afford Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps or even Social Security.
Those poor innocent corrupt complicit neo-liberal Democrats.
Still, I must admit that Republican brazenness is breathtaking…
 Republicans say the U.S. government must reduce its deficit, and has a “debt crisis.”
 Republicans say that tax cuts will increase the debt and deficit, but will lower the debt and deficit by stimulating growth.
 Republicans say the deficit will rise three times as fast as the economy will grow.
A contradiction? Yes of course. The Joint Committee on Taxation includes Republicans who wrote the tax plan. According to their own study, their tax cuts will boost the economy by 0.8 percent during the next decade, while causing the deficit to increase by three times that.
So, according to Republicans, the tax cuts will reduce the deficit, but they won’t, but they will, but they won’t.
Of course, it’s not only Republicans. On 30 Nov 2017 Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs put out a warning that the U.S. debt is deposits are on track to hit unsustainable levels in coming years. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said the same thing. Liars one and all.

Here’s a trivia break. (I’m still trying to lighten the mood after yesterday’s nightmare.) As you probably know, lemmings do not do this…
Small rodents like lemmings, voles, mice, muskrats, and rabbits are extremely fecund (they have many offspring). They have to be, since there are so many predators that eat them. These animals go through cycles. Every five years or so, their numbers build so high that they eat all the available food (seeds, nuts, etc). Tension mounts. Finally they stampede outward as a mob, in a desperate bid to seek food in new territory. This is not a suicide rush, but an attempt to avoid death. It is not a migration, but a dispersal.
The 1958 Disney movie White Wilderness staged one of these stampedes, and as lemmings plunged over a bluff into water, the narrator falsely implied that the lemmings were “committing suicide.” However the narrator then clarified that the lemmings were simply mistaking the ocean for a lake with a reachable shore just across the water. (Most rodents are very good swimmers, and lemmings routinely swim cross lakes.) Nonetheless, the image caught viewers’ imaginations, and the myth of “mass suicides” was born, because it serves as a mirror. We humans are herd animals, with mob psychology. Unlike lemmings, we actually do commit mass suicide via war, or by believing (along with the mob) that the U.S. government “has no money.”
Speaking of mob psychology, Democrats and media celebrities continue to cannibalize each other. On 5 Dec 2017 Democrats expelled John Conyers who had been re-elected 27 times, and had always been the strongest voice in the House for Universal Medicare.
Two days later, Democrats expelled Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota over allegations of sexual misconduct that were not investigated, let alone prosecuted, and which Franken basically denies.
Only a few days ago Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin had said of Franken’s case, “Let’s have a hearing, an investigation. Let’s let this reach whatever conclusion it is going to reach, but through a due process.”
Then Durbin suddenly reversed himself with the mob. After a report in Politico (6 Dec 2017) of another allegation (with no proof) against Franken, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (one of the leaders of the sexual misconduct witch-hunt) declared that Franken had to go. Instantly thirty-five of forty-eight Democrats in the Senate called for Franken’s head, including Bernie Sanders, plus Minority Leader Charles Schumer and Minority Whip Richard Durbin. Senate Democrats called for Franken’s resignation.
Republicans don’t do this nearly as much. Democrats, you see, have been driven mad by their own lies. Democrats vote for everything that Republicans want, except for when Democrats are out of power, and their votes make no difference, in which case they pretend to oppose Republicans. Democrats are now caught up in cannibalism and Russia-gate. They are just as corrupt as are Republicans. And yet they pretend to be “different” from Republicans.
It takes a lot of energy to sustain this lie, and it drives many people insane. “How could you possibly vote Republican?”
What these fools cannot understand is that among average Americans, many vote for Republicans because they are disgusted by Democrat lies, hypocrisy, and self-righteousness. They are sick of idiots who concede that yes, Democrats are as bad as Republicans, and yet Democrats are still “better.”
The purpose of all this madness is to keep the peasants divided and submissive. The slaves are fractured along the lines of gender, race, and sexual orientation, in order to prevent a unified struggle against the oligarchs.
A new victim of the witch hunt is acclaimed Australian actor Geoffrey Rush (right) who has been accused by an unnamed individual of “inappropriate” but unspecified behavior, allegedly during a 2015–2016 Sydney Theatre Company (STC) production of King Lear.
The unexplained allegations were published on Wednesday in the Murdoch-owned Daily Telegraph in Sydney under the lurid headline “King Leer,” and were echoed throughout the international media, including Variety, Hollywood Reporter and other industry journals.
Virtually overnight, Rush faces the destruction of his career. Rush’s statement to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reads:
“The moment I became aware of rumors of a complaint, I immediately spoke to senior management at the Sydney Theater Company, asking for clarification. They refused to give me any details. I asked why, according to standard theater practice, the issue had not been raised with me during the production via stage management. Again they refused to explain.”
So Geoffrey Rush is accused of something that no one will explain to him, by someone that no one will reveal. Today that’s enough to destroy you. No proof, no evidence, no explanation, no trial, no appeal.
Note, incidentally, that the top executives of tabloids and corporate media outlets escape all this, since they decide what gets publicized.
And as I said, most of this witch hunt madness is on the Democrat side. Faced with such evil, selfishness, self-righteousness, and cowardice, is it any wonder that many people vote Republican, even though they know that Republicans want to screw them? And is it any wonder that rich oligarchs continue to rule the sewer from above?
This is what the stupid peasants do when their owners push them to extremes. They eat each other.
