A Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu or the Politics of Machiavelli in the Nineteenth Century gen_strike_english_hi-resby a Contemporary was penned initially anonymously by French lawyer Maurice Joly in 1864 as a satire of Napoleon III. Msr Joly spent a year and a half at the Bastille prison for his… indiscretion.  Largely forgotten, the book was rewritten to include anti-Jewish propaganda and republished in 1897 as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion by the leaders of the early Jew/Christian Zionist lobby to stir up anti-Jewish hostilities in its push for the ultimately successful invasion and occupation of Palestine. They are in essence a fabrication.

There are no Protocols of Zion.

Though to look at the United States today, you would think so.

Protocol 20: The National Debt of the United States. “A loan is an issue of government bills of exchange containing a percentage obligation [interest] commensurate of to the sum of the loaned capital. If the loan bears a charge of five percent then in 20 years the State vainly pays away in interest a sum equal to the loan borrowed, in 40 years it is paying a double sum, in 60 treble, and all the while the debt remains an unpaid debt.”

A hundred years earlier Founding Father Alexander Hamilton was a tool of the international bankers and held forth to a strong central government/central bank martialed under a wealthy elite. He wrote “No society could succeed which did not unite the interest and credit of rich individuals with those of the state.” Altruistic perhaps, though more the likely opportunistic, arguing “a national debt, if not excessive, would be a national blessing.”

Fascist Benito Mussolini, Time Magazine’s 1933 Man of the Year, defined Fascism as  “uniting the corporation with the state.”

Founder of America’s first political party and forerunner of today’s Republican Party, the Federalist Party, Hamilton as Secretary of the Treasury established America’s first central bank, First Bank of the United States. A virtual copy of the British central bank, the Bank of England, it failed rather spectacularly after but three years due, unsurprisingly, to fraud, inflation and unemployment generated by the issue of baseless fiat money.

He was also one of the “christians” the nutballs refer to when making the claim America was founded a christian nation.

There are The Protocols of the International Banking Consortium.

We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget.

You’re either with us, or against us.

No fear.

Israel is a Terrorist State. The Mother Of All Terrorist States. An utterly foreign occupier perpetrating an American Taxpayer initiated, financed and morally sanctioned genocide upon the indigenous descendants of the “biblical” Hebrew. It has no “right” to exist, and this world will never know Peace until it does not.

First Amerian Activist Russell Means died today at Porcupine, S.D., age 72.

Russell Means was an early leader in the American Indian Movement (AIM), and had been battling throat cancer for years.

In 1973 Means was one of the leaders of a 71-day uprising at Wounded Knee in South Dakota between Lakota and FBI and law enforcement agents.

Means’ wife and children released this statement on his passing:

Our dad and husband, now walks among our ancestors. He began his journey to the spirit world at 4:44 am, with the Morning Star, at his home and ranch in Porcupine. There will be four opportunities for the people to honor his life to be announced at a later date. Thank you for your prayers and continued support. We love you. As our dad and husband would always say, “May the Great Mystery continue to guide and protect the paths of you and your loved ones.”

In a post on his own website Saturday, Means wrote that he was moved by support he and his family had received since his battle with cancer was made public, and told his fans, “I, like all of us, will eventually join my ancestors, and when I do, my hope is that you will all continue to dedicate yourselves to the work to which I have tried to commit my life — liberation and freedom for my Lakota people, for all indigenous peoples, and, in fact, for ALL peoples.”

We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us. Expect us.

No fear…

They can only “win”, by cheating

Romney family buys voting machines

Tagg Romney, the son of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, has purchased electronic voting machines that will be used in the 2012 elections in Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, Washington and Colorado.

“Late last month, Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis at FreePress.org broke the story of the Mitt Romney/Bain Capital investment team involved in H.I.G. Capital which, in July of 2011, completed a “strategic investment” to take over a fair share of the Austin-based e-voting machine company Hart Intercivic,” according to independent journalist Brad Friedman.

Lansing Scott has a good article and a couple of companion posts up over at Geov Parish’s place, Eat the State, about how now that Delusional is No Longer Marginal, it is no longer Your Grandfathers’ Republican Party (or mine), and this blast from the past: Know Your Fascism. Something to think about as you fill out your paper mail/hand-in ballot, paying particular attention to characteristic number fourteen: Fraudulent Elections. They can only “win”…  by cheating.

Fourteen Defining Characteristics Of Fascism
November 15, 2010 in White Rose
By Dr. Lawrence Britt, Source Free Inquiry.co

Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread
domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism – The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security – Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined – Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed – Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts – Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us. Expect us.

No fear…

Forty-three years ago I got a Social Security Card and went to work on a cattle ranch a hundred miles the other side of Burns. When I first cashed that first paycheck, I entered into a social contract with The United States Government – specifically that if I pay into the system for the next forty-five or fifty years, then after forty-five or fifty years of paying into the system the system will pay me back. I faithfully met my part of the contract, I faithfully paid into the system.

Now the government wants to take away what I’ve paid for the past forty-three years, just seven years short of honoring its end of the social contract… to steal it from me and give to the bankers, the trustfunders, and the jews. Violate the social contract we entered into forty-three years ago. Rip me off, and give it away.

Be forewarned, take from me what I have in good faith paid into the system, and I will no longer consider myself a part of this country, nor bound to its laws, its standards or its mores. Rip me off, and I will collectively rip you a new asshole.

Who better to fight the revolution, than a dishonored Vietnam Veteran?

Walter Pincus: Britain is not the only country modernizing [its nuclear weapons]. The United States has a multi-billion-dollar program to upgrade its three major nuclear warheads and a more costly effort to build new land, sea and air strategic delivery systems. France is modernizing its nuclear bombs and missiles as well as its strategic submarine, though it is reducing numbers. Russia and China are modernizing, too. It is ironic that these five countries meeting in Baghdad to dissuade Iran from moving toward a nuclear weapon are all modernizing their stockpiles.

This picture will make you think forgiving student debt isn’t so crazy after all.

Trust-funder punks who have never done a day’s real work in their lives Willard Romney and Greg Walden’s (Oregon’s own Willard Romney) response: first, as he’s promised before, Romney intends to divert money away from student aid — instead giving it to banks — by repealing Obama’s student loan reforms:

Reverse President Obama’s nationalization of the student loan market and welcome private sector participation in providing information, financing, and the education itself.
