“It is easier to rob by setting up a bank than by holding up a bank clerk.”
– Bertolt Brecht
Daily, a thus distracted public is told that the financial patsy for the growing worldwide economic disaster is simply a virus. As Americans fearfully watch passively as the US Congress throws the ever-mounting trillions in Bail-out funds so quickly at the feet of their puppet masters, the paltry cash reserves of all American bank depositors have never been more at risk.
“I’m sorry, Sir. We are unable to cash this check,” were the rather ominous words delivered to me by a fresh-faced, none-too-friendly, Wells Fargo Bank assistant manager. He had just kept me waiting ten minutes while in consultation with others about my pending transaction. Returning to his Wells’ colored cubicle he sat down quickly, straightened in his chair and then looked at me intently through narrowed eyes before delivering the bad news.
Four feet away, between us and in front of him, were three forms of my personal identification face up. Looking down, this budding banker particularly glowered at two personal checks, also laying on the desk before him, written to me as payment by a client and drawn on his bank. Not being a “Wells” customer I had expected a shake-down, hence I had brought with me multiple forms of ID including passport.
These two checks totalled the small sum of almost US$8,000.00. Not expecting this much difficulty I insisted on a reason, to which he now looked up from once again carefully considering the two checks and replied, “I’m sorry, but the bank does not have sufficient funds on-hand to cash these checks.”

To divorce one’s self- finally- from nationalistic illusionary comfort. There is no harder decision any world citizen will ever make. To “up and go” is a decision that pits one’s developed reason against that propaganda; self-preservation against nationalism, fact against friend, and history against ignorance. These conflicts boil together night after night when one’s mind wrangles throughout with this grinding web of conflict thus further inspired by an acute understanding of past deeds and surreptitious capitalist motives perpetrated by an Empire gone mad.
Within another sleepless night, whilst again wrestling with the incredible facts of this new “crisis” being incubated by an acute understanding of the draconian history of “exceptionalism,” in the dead of night one’s own faculties also come into question within the all-enveloping gloom.
After months of the DNC’s daily water boarding of the American public with their manufactured jurisprudence know as The Impeachment, these same political wizards of electioneering have in one day, Monday, galvanized the person they most detest. This week’s political disaster in Iowa rocketed Bernie Sanders into pronounced Trumpian front runner status and thus exposed the DNC – yet again- for what it really is: A cabal of status quo elitists no different than the RNC puppets they purport to oppose.
Just four years ago the undeniable documentary revelations of the rigging of the 2016 primaries by the DNC to
For the voter, the Democratic Party no longer has any interest in performing its function as an opposition party. The charade of purported constitutional jurisprudence seen in the US House impeachment hearings should forever confirm this. This degradation of political will far too nicely coincides with the long term duality of current and long term speaker Nancy Pelosi who, while dressed in the blue ensemble of a democrat somehow sports the accoutrements of a republican.
Many questions remain as to Pelosi’s long-term resistance to impeachment until recently forced into action by her party members uprising. The two resultant Articles of Impeachment, Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress now head to the Senate after the long-expected party-line vote and equally expected defeat.
Sixty-two years ago on Oct 4, 1957, the first space pollution entered the earth’s atmosphere from Russia’s Sputnik spacecraft. After decades of profitable degradation of our terrestrial environment by governments and corporations, the astral environment is cause for serious concern.
Seen a shooting start lately? If so, it is likely due to one of the approximately 5,000 active or deceased satellites, or 750,000 other pieces of debris big enough to be tracked by NASA coming back to earth at over 18,000 miles per hour.
This pollution goes on with impunity and without regulation or the cost of any clean-up right. For decades scientists have called attention to the space debris problem flying above our heads. Two Earth orbits, LEO (low-earth orbit: 1,200 miles up) and GEO (geostationary orbit-22,000 miles up),
“The revolutionary war is a war of the masses; only mobilizing the masses and relying on them can wage it.” – Mao
Yesterday, Tuesday, July 9 2019, Hong Kong’s Chinese anointed leader of the Legislative Council, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-Ngor, assured protesters that the controversial extradition bill was ” dead.” Previously she had assured the protesters that the same bill was “suspended.” The protesters ain’t buying it.
The one word the protesters want to hear, the one Chinese lap dog Carrie Lam will not utter, is “withdrawal.” A complete retraction. It is likely too late for this.

The pendulum of history may have finally begun its backwards swing. In a world afflicted by the self-serving methods of the elite that beget their corporate greed and quest for unfathomable riches, this new pendulum swing may reverse the seemingly unstoppable, chronological tick-tock of the Empire’s worldwide daily horrors. Its downward arc is now that of the Sword of Damocles. For as Cicero (63 BC) accurately opined of this sword, waning political power and of the inherent power of the people en mass:
“… there can be nothing happy for the person over whom some fear always looms?”[
Evil hides in the dark… the dark of its deeds forgotten. Without proper memory, déjà vu cannot warn one of the returning evil to come.
For a public having lost this defensive ability the incredible unreported parallels between what then was Ebola 2014 and is now the Covid-19 alleged pandemic have been ignored. When today’s bio-weapon saga of COVID-19 is compared closely, Ebola 2014 can best be described as a trial run.
To continue the correct investigative story begun by many other journalists into the hyperbole surrounding the virus officially known as SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes called COVID-19 the similarities between the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Western Africa and this year’s rush to a new global pandemic must not be ignored. They are too many in number and too close in comparison. This reporter documented these virtually unreported comparative details back in 2014 and the questions at that time called that quest for a global pandemic and its desperation for a vaccine substantially into question. The answer to those questions had a singular answer: Profit.
Six years after Ebola, when considering those past details, that one answer remains the same.
“Essentially, five Justices were unhappy with the limited nature of the case before us, so they changed the case to allow themselves to change the law.” – Former US Supreme Court justice, John Paul Stevens.
This week almost all media failed in their duties, as did the US Supreme court a decade ago, to bring you the true and most important- and unreported- story of this generation in American election politics.
It is now ten years since the United States Supreme Court vacated its duties regarding the US constitution, particularly regarding election law. The American voter now steamrolls
Once again, the American voter has dutifully begun their quadrennial march to futility at the hands of another election cycle full of false prophets. None seem to realize or remember that the monocracy that they hold so sacrosanct is not- and has not been- a democracy for decades. Yet these societal lemmings, known as “voters,” again prepare to exert their media controlled, fact adjusted opinions at the polls while singing joyfully the praises of their one chosen new demagogue and praying that this time their candidate will, post-election, actually represent them from the Oval Office of American despair.
For far too long voters, political pundits and presidential opponents during each presidential election cycle have never asked that single most important campaign question: The one question that distills the essence of America’s fundamental and terminal societal and political problem. This question is never asked because the answer would immediately reveal, for all of America’s disenfranchised voters to understand clearly, who are the true masters of all potential candidates: Those grinning so menacingly at us throughout the many so-called DNC debates. Their master is not, has not, nor for more than fifty years never been the American voter.
American worldwide terror is well documented. It comes in too many forms: From draconian economic sanctions that starve a nation to death to its direct illegal military interventions. From the nightly unreported black ops killings of foreign families orchestrated from the 800 plus US military bases worldwide to the anonymous drone strike dismemberment of wedding parties and innocent bystanders. From overturning populist elections to anointing unelected presidents in their image of US-inspired domestic terror.
American institutional insanity.
America’s number one export is an insanity: Terror. This terror is, by design, used to force acquiescence, if not obedience, of the rational civilized conscience towards that of a morally corrupt, willfully ignorant regime that espouses this insanity within its deep seated love of racism, hatred and wanton killing. When a society stoops to the mental depths of gleefully legalizing the killing of newborn wolf puppies and bear cubs during springtime when they are completely defenceless, the accusation of national Criminal Insanity truly stands as charged: America is a land that embraces racism and criminal insanity. An endemic love of… killing!
Regularly presidents, prime ministers, congresspersons and parliamentarians worldwide negate the democratic will of their nation’s voters by refusing to support legitimate election results. Strangely, their treasonous actions continue without serious reprisal or punishment by the voter. This emboldens them. The reality of votes cast and “democracy” past does not does bode well for the people of the United Kingdom, their future as a nation or their hopeful return to sovereignty once called, “Brexit.”
While the name has not changed; the definition certainly has.
There is much that the civilized world does not understand about modern Zionism. Today, the definitions of being Jewish, Israeli or Zionist are, to most people, analogous. They are not.
Indoctrinated into submitting to this incorrect, singular and collective definition, solely due to Zionism’s false claim of a direct religious link to Judaism, hence the objective, critical world cowers at the similarly incorrect, but inevitable charge of“Anti-Semitism.” This false charge has too often caused the political and journalistic demise of too many. Thus the world is scared away from exercising one’s full mental faculties, such faculties of conscience that would normally rise-up in collective reaction and outrage.
In what can only be considered a staggering loss for Western influence in Lebanon, Hizbullah doubled its seats in the new Lebanese parliament as a result of the first election in nine years…and its own, far too obvious, attempt to influence the result.
The desperation of Saad Hariri’s Western backers had been shown by his image shadowing the many candidate’s campaign poster images whom he hoped would be part of his own new coalition, one that would have resulted in additional influence for him and the Western backers he met with two weeks ago in Paris. This was exemplified by the vote-buying scandal – ignored by Western media – designed to negate Hizbullah’s continued rise in influence.
Beirut, Lebanon: Sat, May 5, 2018- On this lovely morning here on the coast of the Mediterranean there is not a cloud in the sky. In less than twenty-four hours voting will begin. However, on this day before the election, a howling wind is blowing from the south making the thousands of posters, banners and building-sized placards that feature the faces of the scores of potential Lebanese parliamentarians dance and sway wildly above the throngs of tomorrows voters.
But this wind, one that just yesterday seemed to bring the promise of a new future for Lebanon, will it be an ill wind that instead dashes this attempt at populist democratic reform, one cast from nine years of progress, onto the rocks of US-backed history?
Judging from the past twelve hours on the streets of Beirut, there is suddenly strong pause for concern. Someone is buying votes!
And just about everyone knows it.
Prior to arriving in the wee hours of this morning, this reporter had checked the newspaper offerings in the three airports transited for features on this very important election. In the New York Times, London Times, UK Independent, Financial Times, their Friday-before-the-election editions included not so much as a mention. In the English language papers of Turkey to the north, neither the Daily News or the Daily Sabah had a similar omission.
These same papers had news about Armenian, Moldovan and/ or the Maldivian elections where the western powers were already far along in bringing their unelected candidates back to power despite contrary election results past. The many Lebanese spoken with this day did not know of this glaring omission but were not surprised. As one local commented, “Well, they always ignore us…until war breaks out, again.”
In emulating the American economic raison d’etre, China has attempted to develop its unique capitalist model while ignoring that it too will soon suffer the same fate for the same reason: Unsustainable debt. When examining the recent realities of Chinese banking and finance over the past year it seems the steam that president Xi Jinping touts as powering the engine of his purported economic miracle of a master-planned economy is only a mirage, now almost completely evaporated before his eyes.
Like the many other similarly foolish western nations, China seeks only one path out of this fiscal death spiral, one that will likely spell doom
The world war of Democracy against its people is now official.
On Oct 20, 2019, Chilean president Sebastian Pinera publicly admitted the singular capitalist threat implicitly and silently embraced by virtually all politicians across our embattled Earth: Pinera formally declared war on his people. Said this corporatist salesman of the draconian and ever-expanding horrors of corporatist austerity- better known as greed:
“We are at war against a powerful enemy, who is willing to use violence without any limits.”
Then, Pinera had his army unload their weaponry on the non-violent protesters; attempting to kill the dreams of freedom by these impoverished Chilean people who had reached the limits
Friday, Dec 6, 2019, saw the most important victory to date in the battle against Global Warming. Denmark’s “Climate Act” will entirely revamp Denmark’s climate policy – by law- and thrust it onto the world’s centre stage by showcasing the only effective political solution: Changing the “system itself.”
Eight out of the ten parties in the Danish Parliament agreed on the new national Climate Act that mandates binding targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent (compared to the 1990 level).
2030, not the belayed 2050, is the target date for tangible reductions. In a world-first, Danish law requires consideration of methane gas, consumption, and imported emissions along with CO2. Denmark has also eliminated the trickery of Carbon credits while a new expert body of climate scientists will be placed with the newly formed Climate Council. They and the Climate Minister must annually submit to a parliamentary progress review. The first of two five year plans of action are now being developed for approval. Also, a new Committee for the Green Transformation will ensure that climate considerations are taken into account in every major political decision and include 13 climate partnerships with
“It made no difference which Palestinians we killed… They either were terrorists or would become terrorists or they gave birth to terrorists.”
– former IDF commander, Rafael “ Raful” Eitan.
Spies, Femme fatale, deadly plots, killings, bombs, knives, guns, and an array of unique murderous weaponry that would make James Bond and “Q” envious. All this, combined with dozens of unapologetic and brutal cloak and dagger assassinations in foreign locales worldwide? Sounds like the makings of a great spy thriller.
Indeed. But, despite decades of Israeli denial… this story is true.
No other country in the Middle East is as important in countering America’s rush to provide Israel with another war than Iraq. Fortunately for Iran, the winds of change in Iraq and the many other local countries under similar threat, thus, make up an unbroken chain of border to border support. This support is only in part due to sympathy for Iran and its plight against the latest bluster by the Zio-American bully.
In the politics of the Middle East, however, money is at the heart of all matters. As such, this ring of defensive nations is collectively and quickly shifting towards the new Russo/ Sino sphere of economic influence. These countries now form a geo-political defensive perimeter that, with Iraq entering the fold, make a US ground war virtually impossible and an air war very restricted in opportunity.
