The Most Important Presidential Election Question (That No One Ever Asks!)

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

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.

Yes. One simple all-important question.

Hong Kong: The Truth Walks the Streets!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“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.

It’s Not Funny Anymore: Hypocrisy In Paris.
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

A picture is worth a thousand words. A political cartoon? Volumes.

Parried with satire and parody, the awakening of truth through a single frame, roughly drawn cartoon is the circus mirror of reality that the satirist repeatedly shines at a constant target: hypocrisy. The weapon? Ridicule. Spawned of truth.

Humor being the most difficult form of art, the role of the political cartoonist this week became a tragic and terminal avocation. On Wednesday Jan. 7, 2015,  ten more journalists, these who worked for the satirical publication, “Charlie Hebdo,” were gunned down in pools of warm, very real blood and shell casings. They are now added to a long death toll of those brutally assassinated merely for daring to... Read More

A Brexit Lesson In Greek- Votes and Hopes Trashed on Parliamentary Floors.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

So…you, the UK voter, favored the Brexit! You, the EU voter, see the Brexit as the pendulum of democracy swinging away from un-elected central rule and returning to sovereign national priorities? You… will be proved wrong.

Sadly, yours is an optimism without memory of corrupt Members of the European Parliament (MEP) or of EU evils past and their backroom methods of dealing with the whims of free will, voting power and democracy. You must realize that these are anathema to the tenants of centralized rule. Indeed. History is about to repeat itself- less than a year later. Like the failures of Greece in June 2015, last week’s UK referendum is doomed.

Three-hundred-and-sixty-one days before the Brexit victory night of this past Thursday, Alexis Tsipras boarded a plane to Brussels with a confident smile on his face and a new populist referendum under his arm. As head of Syriza, the fledgling opposition movement avowed to stop EU hegemony over a positive Greek financial future, Tsipras had roared to power. In an attempt to fulfill this promise he scheduled a referendum- a non-binding popular vote requiring parliamentary approval- refusing troika financial demands of additional austerity that would further gut and sell-off his country to its core. Getting onto the plane Tsipras was all confident smiles and waves to his supporters. The world press was abuzz with the possibility of a Grexit from the EU.

How To Stop Trump in Exactly… 60, 59, 58 … Days!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Perhaps America will one day go fascist democratically, by popular vote.”

-William L. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

 

Indeed. These are desperate times for the American voter. Desperate times call for desperate measures. You, the American voter, had only a Hobson’s choice of one of three fatally flawed presidential candidates.  A choice for the “lesser of [three] evils” is still a choice for evil. And, so, here you are!

Petitions?  Protests?  Death treats? Nonsense!

An exercise in creative thinking by the rational, intelligent and scared voter reveals reason, motivation and opportunity to stop the advent of the horror that is this presidential election’s final result.

It also reveals a very plausible plan. It has only one weakness. You!

How to Stop This Election Madness.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

In a mere sixty-one days after the election, on Nov. 8, 2016, the eventual president-elect can be stopped from taking the Oath of Office. It has happened three times before in US election history. However, this time it is the voter who can change the course of history. Every American man and woman, of every race, color, and creed, religion, ethnicity and sexuality over the age of eighteen can- this election- alter all US presidential elections, while seizing-back the reigns of a shattered democracy and Constitution.

Interestingly, deep under the rubble of what’s left of the eviscerated US Constitution lies an all-powerful shard awaiting to be used. Here the long-range wisdom and thinking of its authors two-hundred-plus years ago must now be fully considered and appreciated. The concerned reader will be pleased to learn that a treasonous Executive Branch,... Read More

A Whiff of Methane and the Odor of Corruption

Porter ranch methane gas leak
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Oh! Sure. Twice, just last week,” answered Porter Ranch resident Jim Baker to the question about whether the smell of methane gas was reaching his home.

 

Residents across the affluent north Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch report the same smell. Not good: methane gas is poison. On day one of an on-scene look at the world’s largest natural gas leak, which every day spews uncontrolled at extremely high pressure the equivalent greenhouse gas pollution of 4.5 million cars, another distinct smell is becoming obvious: political corruption.

 

High above Porter Ranch, natural gas well Standard Sesnon 25 (SS-25) has been blowing high-pressure methane gas into the air for months. The exact date that the blow-out began is uncertain since the owner of SS-25, Southern California Gas Company (Cal Gas), reluctantly admitted to the massive pipe rupture... Read More

Stopped!! Methane Blow-Out. Radioactive Fall-out. And … The Predictable Result.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

This past Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016 brought a welcome breath of fresh air to more than 4400 displaced Porter Ranch, CA residents. It was their first in more than four months. A mile or so due north and a thousand feet farther up the foothills of the Santa Susana mountains in Aliso Canyon, the nation’s worst environmental and health disaster since BP, has stopped. Natural gas well, SS-25 is dead.

After depositing more than 90 million metric tons of a very toxic gaseous cocktail from two miles deep under the mountains up into the atmosphere above 18.5 million mostly unsuspecting Angelenos, the corporate players who have caused this disaster are now assuring this same public that they are, suddenly, protecting their interests. As highlighted in the previous article, the... Read More

The Secret “American” Army.

Demo cartoon
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

A  new American army is  growing on American soil. They are prepared.

In hushed tones during conversations across the breadth of the heartland of America there are whispers. Quiet talk. About an army. Of Americans? An army prepared to defend an increasingly oppressed population craving reprieve from their  government’s increasingly draconian methods. This army, they say, is growing.

After firm handshakes all around, Dan T. and Gene R., who I had good reason to believe were both retired military, settled into our task at hand. I was in their company for the day on business. During the one-day meeting Dan and Gene revealed that they were indeed career military. Dan, Army. Gene, retired Navy. I attempted to politely avoid political discussion in the interest of decorum.

So at the first comment on politics from my hosts I took a long deep breath. My... Read More

The Mastermind of Hamas: Who is Mohammed Deif?

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 Without an army for the people, there is nothing for the people.  – MaoTse-tung (On Guerrilla Warfare)

 

Mohammed Deif is the most dangerous man in the world.

Confronted with the world’s two most militaristic national horrors, and with the civilized world looking on in hand-wringing anguish, Hamas has commanded both these villains of inhumanity to their knees; the negotiating table in Cairo.

The iron-fisted leader of Hamas, Mohammed Deif, is closer than ever before to a victory for the autonomy of Gaza, and a National victory Palestine.

More importantly a victory for the remaining civilized world.

The Israeli controlled media, having few facts about Mohammed Deif, much less... Read More

Terminal Apathy?: What Rats Say About Americans.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” – Aristotle

When considering the cause of national apathy, Americans are evidently physiologically and socially similar to the junk food addled laboratory rat. Both tolerate repressive environments while confined against their will in a maze. In the natural desire to escape and find freedom, like the affected rat, Americans passively accept their confinement, acquiescing without struggle to a life of controlled stimulation and manipulation by all manner of drugs, tests, and mandated choice of direction. In a country objectively descending into chaos, why don’t American care? In recent studies at the University of California/ Los Angeles (UCLA), these same rats evidence one reason for America’s irrational disinterest in self-preservation.

In ever-more-frequent and growing worldwide protests, resistance to the American empire’s imposed maze increases. Strangely, Americans offer no similar resistance at all. The social, economic, and political problems in the USA mirror those of an empire afflicted world, yet in the “exceptional” nation most would rather chew off their tails than find the energy to extricate themselves from their maze. Examples of exceptionally paltry public resistance and protest abound. Rarely does an American protest amount to more than a few hundred temporarily outraged souls who then quickly return to their couches when told to do so by the well-armed militia of the government they came into the streets to change.

Why is America the isolated case study of this strange domestic malady that may best be summed-up as: clinical, terminal apathy?

Mr. Obama…you mean American, “Accept-ionalism?”

Mr. Obama…you mean American, “Accept-ionalism?”
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Dear Mr. Obama,

We cannot thank you enough for providing this past week a detailed and visually militarized definition of your failing country’s,“exceptionalism.” On May 28, 2014, to the cheers of budding West Point Military Academy cadets, you could not hear the global guffaws of laughter in response to your twisted excuses for this sad new lexicon of an ever threatened world.

Exceptionalism, however, describes America and American foreign policy much more accurately than you realize. Fortunately, and thanks to your finely crafted definition, we now know the cause of this affliction, a disease it seems, that is peculiar to US or Zionist controlled politicians.

Exceptionalism, the metaphor for horror and atrocity on behalf of Empire, has been available for illicit use since first brought into empirical popularity by... Read More
