As you no doubt know, regardless my ardent opposition to The Church, I am far more “Christian” than the vast majority in this country who call themselves “Christian”. So much so that I have printed up business cards to hand out to those making a spectacle themselves that read:

What would Jesus do?

Matthew 6:5 When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners so that others may see them. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.

Put it in the closet!

Matthew 6:6 But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

Extra credit… Matthew 6:1-3, do it because it’s the right thing to do.

A couple more of my favorites:

2 Thess 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2 Thess 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

When I look at the television, when I hear the “righteous” racists proclaim they are the true “christians”, when they hate on the duly elected president and all the other not-white people of this country, when they send billions of dollars each year to Israel so it may murder not only the indigenous descendants of the “biblical” hebrew but pretty little white girls from a local college, when they insist the god they bow down to, the god of Abraham, is not the same god the Jews and Muslims bow down to, this is what I think of. They are all hypocrites who practice a delusion, and God has damned them to Hell. And I have a message for them:

Fear Me, as I am above sin, and have no problem casting the first stone.

 

freddykruegerunclesamWhile Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is crossing the Atlantic heading to Washington to deliver Tuesday’s controversial speech to Congress on Iran, a group representing nearly 200 of Israel’s top retired military and intelligence officials slammed the move as a direct assault on the US-Israel alliance, claiming it will actually bring Iran closer to a nuclear bomb.

“When the Israeli prime minister argues that his speech will stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, he is not only misleading Israel – he is actually strengthening Iran,” General (res) Amnon Reshef, the former head of Israel’s armoured corps and the founder of Commanders for Israel’s Security, said at a press conference in Tel Aviv on Sunday morning.

Reshef was joined by five other generals who called on Netanyahu to cancel his speech, warning of its dangers to Israeli security.

Israel is a Terrorist State. The Mother of All Terrorist States. An utterly foreign occupier perpetrating an “American” Taxpayer conceived, 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.

I call upon all congress-members of the Pacific Northwest to not be there.

Drug Testing the Wrong People, from Divine Irony:

There is only one cure for stupid. Rightfully so.

From Erik Loomis over at Lawyers Guns and Money:

iww-kat_0.thumbnailOn February 24, 1908, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Muller v. Oregon. This landmark decision upheld the idea that, at least for women, laws restricting the hours of work were constitutional. This would be a major victory in the long fight to bring working hours down to eight hours nationally, a dream that had already extended for more than two decades and would not be realized for another thirty years. It also created gender inequities in labor law with implications that continue today.

In 1903, Oregon had passed a law limiting the hours of women to ten hours a day and sixty hours a week. Curt Muller, a laundry business owner in Portland, sued the state. Muller believed, for good reason given the predominant legal climate of the time, that he signed legal contracts with individual workers when he hired them and that those workers freely agreed to the terms of hours and wages when they took the job. Yet, these ideas were increasingly challenged during the Progressive Era, as activists sought to create a more fair America that protected basic rights of workers to a decent life. This was especially true for women workers, who many Progressives saw as both uniquely exploited and mothers responsible for raising the next generation of Americans. Progressives argued that whatever the merits of the freedom of contract interpretation of labor legislation, the state had a unique interest in excepting women from that principle. Progressives were especially prominent in states like Oregon, as well as Wisconsin and Washington, which would see the first workers’ compensation legislation a few years later. The Oregon Supreme Court upheld the the state’s law and Muller then appealed to the Supreme Court.

Whose side are you on?

By way of the Rude One: Australia is in the midst of another heat wave season. Some areas got some relief this week, but that’s only because they were hit by a pair of tropical cyclones.  Of course, they didn’t hit where the massive bushfires are, but that’s because Nature is a tricky bitch.  The smoke from those fires in Western Australia has almost reached Antarctica.

eartheggAn independent, crowd-funded group, the Climate Council, released a report this month detailing how fucked beyond fucked Australia is by global warming.  Some of its findings, reached by synthesizing existing information, include:

“The number of heatwave days has increased over much of Australia, particularly the eastern half.”
“Heatwaves are occurring more frequently in terms of the number of heatwave events per summer.”
“The duration of the longest yearly heatwave is increasing.”
“The first heatwave in the season is occurring earlier over almost all of Australia.”
“The hottest day in a heatwave – its peak – is becoming even hotter over almost all of Australia below the tropics.”

Even more particularly: In Sydney, heatwaves now start 19 days earlier than they did in 1950. In Adelaide, heatwaves are 4.3C degrees hotter, and there’s double the number of heat wave days. “Heat wave” here means it reaches 40C, easily. Oh, that’s 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Often it’s 116 or pushing 120.

Yes, it’s cold out east… it’s winter. Not abnormally so. The cold, the snow, is not abnormal weather for the northeastern states, they’ve been getting cold and snow for at least as long as we have been around. The weather is extremely normal – extremely cold, extremely snowy – normal in the extreme. What is abnormal is they haven’t seen this kind of weather since the seventies.

If you don’t think the climate is changing, if you actively deny and obstruct progress, you are a clear and present danger to my grandchildrens’ future.

Think afrensis, and fear me.

Noted Climate Change Denialist Secretly Took Oil Co. Payouts

By Nadia Prupis | (Commondreams.org)

A prominent climate change denier and researcher quietly took more than $1.2 million in payouts from the energy industry, including the Koch brothers and other oil lobbyists, for the past 14 years, newly released documents have shown.

Wei-Hock “Willie” Soon, a researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, accumulated a total of $1.25 million from ExxonMobil, the American Petroleum Institute, Southern Company, and a Koch brothers foundation, according to documents obtained by Greenpeace through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) filings.

For years, Soon’s work has been a go-to source for politicians angling to block climate change legislation, such as Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), who has called climate change a hoax. Soon has also testified before the U.S. Congress and appeared on numerous conservative news shows to claim that greenhouse gases are not harmful and that recent global warming trends are not caused by human activity, but by variations in the sun’s energy.

Our grandchildren are going to wonder why we didn’t execute dog-shit like this.

You should be reading Dr Cole everyday.

By way of Balloon Juicerepubs-luv-america-anderson
I think if you racist assholes don’t like it here, you should get the fuck out.

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:

cartoon-nazi-fascism1. 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 would do well to recall what happened to those previous experiments.

They got their asses kicked.

Judging by the volume of hate mail. Let’s strike some more…

Look at those fat asses, fat bellies, fat cheeks and chins, tits and thighs, ankles; flat feet, pink skin prone to burns, boils and lessons, hairless, near blind, deaf, stink utterly dependent upon adolescent fairy tales to justify sex with children, holding on to their little pee-pees like maybe they’ll cum in their pants. Can’t get any pussy, I guess, other than each other.

I am laughing, at the “superiority”.

America has always had a love affair with Fascism. Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, USMC 1881 – 1940, was a double recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, and the most highly decorated Marine in the history of The Corp:

“I spent 33 years and 4 months in active service as a member of our country’s most agile military force–the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism. I suspected I was part of a racket all the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service.”

General Butler was The American Hero who prevented the Bush Family, convicted in 1947 of violating the Trading With The Enemy Act, and their Hitler loving corporate partners from staging a coup on the Roosevelt Administration in 1933.

The Threat of U.S. Fascism: An Historical Precedent

Alan Nasser

In 1934 a special Congressional committee was appointed to conduct an investigation of a possible planned coup intended to topple the administration of president Franklin D. Roosevelt and replace it with a government modelled on the policies of Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

Perhaps the most alarming slice of twentieth-century U.S. history is virtually unknown to the general public, including most scholars of American history. One hopes that a recent BBC documentary titled The Plot Against America and an article of the same name by Columbia Law School professor and longtime human rights activist Scott Horton, on the website of Harper’s magazine, will sound an alert.

In 1934 a special Congressional committee was appointed to conduct an investigation of a possible planned coup intended to topple the administration of president Franklin D. Roosevelt and replace it with a government modelled on the policies of Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini. The shocking results of the investigation were promptly scotched and stashed in the National Archives. While the coup attempt was reported at the time in a few newspapers, including The New York Times, the story disappeared from public memory shortly after the Congressional findings were made available to president Roosevelt. It was the recent release from the Archives of the Congressional report that prompted the BBC and Horton commentaries.

monkey-dictator-708The Congressional committee had discovered that some of the foremost members of the economic elite, many of them household names at the time, had indeed hatched a meticulously detailed and massively funded plot to effect a fascist coup in America. The owners of Bird’s Eye, Maxwell House and Heinz, among others, totaling about twenty four major businessmen and Wall Street financiers, planned to assemble a private army of half a million men, composed largely of unemployed veterans. These troops would both constitute the armed force behind the coup and defeat any resistance this in-house revolution might generate. The economic elite would provide the material resources required to sustain the new government.

The plotters hoped that widespread working-class discouragement at the stubborn persistence of the Great Depression would have sufficiently disenchanted the masses with FDR’s policies to make the coup an easy ride. And they were appalled at Roosevelt’s willingness after 1933 to initiate economic policies that economists and businessmen considered dangerously Leftist departures from economic orthodoxy. Only a fascist-style government, they thought, could enforce the kind of economic “discipline” that would reverse the Great Depression and restore profits.
