How to Pay for Free Stuff? Tax Porn!

An Arizona Republican thinks she can get Trump’s wall built by imposing a tax on folks who look at porn on the web. 

AZCentral reports:

Republican state Rep. Gail Griffin, R-Hereford, wants to charge you $20 to look at pornography on the internet.

House Bill 2444 would require companies that make or sell electronic devices in Arizona to install software that blocks porn.

To remove the block, all you’d have to do is prove you are 18 and plunk down $20, payable to the Arizona Commerce Authority.

The money would go into a newly created account called the John McCain Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Fund, with the proceeds to be used for one of 10 things.  

Don’t be fooled by the title. The legislation is merely another revenue generation scam by the state. It has nothing to do with human trafficking or child exploitation. 

But wait a minute. Maybe AOC (socialist darling Alexandria Occasion-Cortez) should propose a similar idea to pay for her list of free goodies, including the budget-busting idea everybody should be on Medicare and college should be free (an idea that will certainly rile up the loan sharks feeding off student loans). 

Despite her inability to grasp simple economic concepts—seemingly a common problem among the Millennial Generation—AOC might embrace the concept of heavily taxing folks for what they view in the privacy of their own homes. In fact, it can fit comfortably within the context of the Me Too movement. All aspects of “toxic masculinity” are to be eradicated. 

By why stop at porn? Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, blazed a path with his sugary drink tax. Last year, he put together a task force to look at expanding revenue generation by taxing all manner of unhealthy “lifestyle choices,” including the use of tobacco and alcohol. 

AOC is apparently oblivious to the fact no number of new taxes, including her proposed 70 percent tax rate on millionaires, will satiate the desire for “free things” which are, of course, not free. Billionaires, however, are smart—they invariably come up with ways to avoid the long reach of the tax man, thus leaving the monetary burden to you and me, the little people. 

Maybe I’m not giving this lady a fair shake. It’s possible she realizes no amount of taxation—short of total confiscation of all wealth by the state—will pay for the list of free things she promises habitually gullible citizens. 

It’s possible she understands the only way to pay for free things is to borrow the money and play a few ledger book tricks at the Federal Reserve.

Far too many Americans are oblivious to a massive debt picking up steam like a runaway train descending a 45 degree trajectory. AOC’s supporters—mostly of the clueless socialist stripe—are milling about on the tracks. They are deaf, blind, and dumb to the impending disaster. 

After the smashup, they’ll be out for blood.

Democrats Prepare Hearings on “Rightwing Extremism”

Prior to the 2018 midterm election, I speculated a Democrat-controlled House would result in hearings targeting “hate groups,” that is to say anybody on the “right” who challenges official narratives, otherwise known as “conspiracy theories.” 

“Rep. Bennie Thompson, an African American lawmaker from Mississippi, is in charge of the House Homeland Security Committee,” reports McClatchy. “Thompson intends to hold hearings to spotlight what experts say is a growth of deadly right wing extremism in America, even if the hearings could feature members of white supremacist groups.”

Thompson said his aim is to change the dialogue and find a balance in a U.S. domestic terrorism strategy that he believes has focused too heavily on the threat of homegrown Muslim terrorism and too little the rise of far right, white nationalist, and anti-Semitic groups.

The corporate propaganda media has done a fair job of conflating “white supremacy” and political thought the government wants to silence and shutdown.

The McClatchy article follows this line and links the “trend” of antigovernment activism to Timothy McVeigh and the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.  That event has served as a touchstone for over two decades, primarily thanks to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has made a cottage industry out of hyping “rightwing hate” (unacceptable political thought) and the threat of violence (for the state, the two are inseparable). 

McClatchy and the corporate media have attached “rightwing extremism” to a number of violent incidents that have more to do with disturbed individuals than ideology. 

A recent spate of deadly incidents—including the shooting deaths of 11 congregants at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October, the February 2018 shooting deaths of 17 students and staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and the August 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia—have given Thompson and other congressional Democrats anecdotal evidence about the extreme right.

The Obama administration, continuing the work of the Bush administration, had the Department of Homeland Security produce a paper on the supposed threat posed by “rightwing extremists,” who are by the state’s definition terrorists on par (or worse than) al-Qaeda and its follow-up act, the Islamic State. Republicans, at the time a majority in the House, lambasted the paper and accused the Obama administration of overreach. Then DHS boss Janet Napolitano went into damage control mode. 

Napolitano apologized for the report. But the political backlash led DHS to halt work on tracking violent far right extremism, according to Daryl Johnson, the report’s author.

But now the House is in the hands of the Democrats and they want blood following the election of Donald Trump and the rise of the so-called Alt-right, or New Right. 

Under Republican control from 2011 until last week, the House Homeland Security Committee repeatedly rejected calls by Thompson and Democrats for specific probes of domestic far right activities. Some Republicans now are wary that Thompson’s probe would be conducted with a partisan eye.

“Congress and the White House has looked at terrorism through the lens of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. The House Homeland Security Committee, established after those attacks, largely has focused on the foreign threat or potential danger posed by U.S. residents becoming radicalized by foreign terrorist groups.

That emphasis will change under the Democrats. The new terrorists are “homegrown” and include nationalists (shorthand for racist), constitutionalists, and libertarians. There will be hearings and possible show trials in the months ahead. 

The DHS will finally arrive at its final destination—a national secret police focused on political activism challenging the ruling elite and their contrived political arrangement. 

Thompson said his aim is to change the dialogue and find a balance in a U.S. domestic terrorism strategy that he believes has focused too heavily on the threat of homegrown Muslim terrorism and too little the rise of far right, white nationalist, and anti-Semitic groups.

In order to be classified as antisemitic, a group or an individual only need criticize Israel and its incestuous relationship with the ruling elite and its political operatives, in particular the neocon faction. 

Thoughtcrime—opposition to the state and its policies—will not be tolerated by the political class. Democrats want to make sure another Donald Trump will not sit in the White House. In order to do this, they have to go after high profile individuals and groups, hold show trials, and continue the work of deplatforming “deplorables” and their “hate,” in other words, free speech. 

Finally, a word of warning to the “far-left.” If you wander outside the parameters set by Democrats and their “progressive” foundations, you will also be attacked and undermined by the state, especially if you oppose Bush’s wars, which became Obama’s wars and now Trump’s.

Next Phase: All Out War by French State on Yellow Vests

The French government, led by the former investment banker Emmanuel Macron, is desperately trying to discredit the Yellow Vest movement. The violence and looting headlined by the propaganda media—much of it by Black Bloc-styled “anarchists” that now routinely act as provocateurs for the state—is being used to make protests illegal, thus allowing the police to use extraordinary measures to shut down the movement. 

The ruling elite are petrified of this movement, especially after it threatened a run on the banks in France. In response, the state is moving to outlaw protest and violently crackdown on any effort to publicly display solidarity with the movement.

This requires the usual tricks, deceptions, and psychological operations. In addition to linking protesters and activists to “extreme” political groups on either side of the artificial political divide, the French state now says the Yellow Vests are endangering French national security by hacking its cybersecurity agency. 

In Canada, the government and Facebook are working together to put a damper on the movement spreading. 

In the UK, the police have arrested James Goddard, said to be the leader of a Yellow Vests spin-off in London. Notice that protests in support of the effort to follow through on Brexit and rejection of the EU  are “abusive” according to the British propaganda conduit, The Independent (which isn’t). 

Police in France have increased the use of violence. The use of “flashballs” against nonviolent protesters and journalists, of course, is not being reported by the propaganda media. 

An uptick in police violence will not stop this movement. It is a reaction to neoliberalism, the dominance of a predatory financial class, and austerity measures. 

As the movement grows and spreads, the full force of the police state will be unleashed. A former education minister, Luc Ferry, has called for the use of live ammunition against protesters. 

If the current measures fail—police violence, water cannons, propaganda portraying protesters as anti-semites, etc.—the French state will go to the next level: martial law and all-out war against the French people.

The Unconstitutional National Emergency Farce

If Donald Trump wants a wall on the border, maybe he can ask Sheldon Adelson to chip in to pay for it. Adelson knows all about walls. His people in Israel built one to keep the Palestinians in their ghettos. 

If the corporate news can be believed, Trump will take relief money earmarked for Puerto Rico and Texas to build his wall. 

It’s all ego at this point. Trump has been humiliated by his inability to get a wall. It’s personal for him. Trump’s not concerned about a few billion dollars spent on a bad idea that will do little to stop illegal immigration. 

Walls don’t stop people. Ask the families of East Germans shot dead trying to scale the Berlin Wall. 

If the US didn’t muck around in Central and South America, supporting tyrants and training deaths squads to make investment safe for international banks and transnational corporations, there wouldn’t be mass migration of refugees fleeing US foreign policy.

If the state hadn’t declared a war on drugs—these guys love wars of all stripe—there wouldn’t be murderous cartels, first in Colombia, and now in Mexico. Drug money floats economies, including ours. Wakovia and other banks have made a fortune laundering drug money. Obama supported the Sinaloa cartel and played it off against its rivals, going so far as sending arms to narco terrorists. 

Trump’s mulling of a “national emergency” (the pretext set with 9/11) isn’t included in the Constitution. It is an outrageous expansion of the imperial presidency.

There isn’t a crisis on the border—the murder rate here is much lower than say in Chicago or Baltimore—a fact I am able to confirm. I live forty miles from Mexico. 

The argument for a wall is quite frankly bullshit. It was a selling point during the presidential campaign. It is now a battle to save face and elevate Trump’s personality. There are several more pressing issues—namely: illegal wars, a bankster manipulated monetary system, and a national debt that will flatten the country… and sooner before later. 

Let’s see if Trump declares a national emergency—despite there not being an actual crisis or emergency—and let’s see what else he does with this awesome and illegal authority. 

I fear a bit of Caliguia in Donald Trump.

French Government Moves to Impose a Police State in Response to Gilets Jaunes 

Marking up the Arc de Triomphe, smashing the face of the Marianne statue, a symbol of the French state, and trashing private property along the Champs-Elysees will be considered minor incidents if the Yellow Vests pull off their next move—an organized run on the banks. 

According to activist Tahz San, the aim of the latest protest is to “scare this (French) state completely legally and without any violence, yet more effectively than ever expected.” 

The Associated Press reports Gilets Jaunes activists “hope the move will force the government to listen to their demands, notably their call for more direct democracy through the implementation of popular votes that allow citizens to propose new laws.”

Instead of listening to the demands of a majority of the French people—polls show around 80% support for the movement—the state will roll out the military and pass a draconian law criminalizing organized protest. 

On Tuesday, the BBC reported:

Speaking on French TV channel TF1, Prime Minister Philippe said the government would support a “new law punishing those who do not respect the requirement to declare [protests], those who take part in unauthorized demonstrations and those who arrive at demonstrations wearing face masks”.

Moreover, the French state will ban activists—described as “known troublemakers”—from participating in demonstrations. In order to make identifying and singling out these activists more easy, the government will also outlaw face masks. 

Bloomberg:

The protesters will face tougher penalties for taking part in undeclared demonstrations, covering their faces, and would be required to pay for the damage they cause, Philippe said on France’s TF1 television. More than 80,000 police officers will be mobilized nationwide for an expected fresh round of protests next Saturday, he said.

Budget Minister Gerald Darmanin urged the state to exercise “ultra-severity” against French citizens opposed to being fleeced and ignored. 

For a former French minister, the only appropriate response by the state is murder. Luc Ferry has called for police to shoot and kill protesters attacking police. 

Violence and murder are a reflexive response by the state when its authority is challenged and other tactics—for instance, demonizing protesters as either right or left extremists—fail to put an end to protests. 

Nothing short of a police state will work to discourage further protests. The French government has plenty of experience along these lines, having declared a state of emergency on numerous occasions, most recently in 2015 after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris. France first implemented an état d’urgence in 1955 during the Algerian war. The law resulted in house arrests, censorship, searches, curfew, restrictions on public gatherings, and forbidding people from entering a defined area. 

Shutting down protests, arresting activists, and even murdering them will not put an end to the Gilets Jaunes movement.

The French elite apparently suffer from amnesia. In the 1700s, the average French citizen spent half his or her wages on bread, thus leading to deadly bread riots and eventually the fall of the Bastille. The French ruling class, the monarchy, faced the guillotine in response to its neglect and parasitical behavior.

No French Revolution in America

More than 80% of the people of France—ordinary working people, not the professional bureaucrate class—support the “gilets jaunes,” the yellow vests in the street protesting against the globalist policies of Emmanuel Macron, defender of the mega-wealthy and upholder of EU progressivism. 

The establishment media in the US and Europe are focusing on the violence of the protests—including vandalism of the Arc de Triomphe (which is a monument to war and French colonialism)—and underplaying the political and economic complaints central to the demonstrations. 

It is a decentralized movement sans leaders (who can be picked off or compromised) in direct opposition to the agenda of the global elite: carbon taxes in response to “climate change” (as if additional parasitical fleecing of the public can modify weather), preferential treatment of financial class interests, unchecked and irrational immigration practices threatening the long-standing cultural customs of western civilization, an eroding economy, growing poverty and unemployment. 

No doubt much of the violence is the work of agent provocateurs in addition to dim-witted “anarchists,” who are nothing of the sort. Lobbing billiard balls and cobblestones at police, torching an art museum, vandalizing national monuments, and destroying private property provide a suitable pretext to impose yet another “state of emergency”—France is renowned for its pouvoirs exceptionnels, that is to say its “exceptional powers,” in other words the state using its monopoly of violence to address serious political and social issues. 

Article 16 of the French Constitution is a hangover from France’s colonialist past, specifically its disastrous war in Algeria. It allows the government to declare a state of emergency during an état de siège, never mind the siege is the result of policies imposed by the state and the ruling class. 

After attending the globalist G20 soirée in Buenos Aires, Macron paraded along the Champs-Élysée to witness first-hand the vandalism. Following this public display of pomp and photo-op, Macron declared yet another state of emergency will be declared in response to public support for the yellow vests, the vast majority nonviolent. 

Spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said the president is willing to talk to the yellow vests. He stressed, however, there will be no backing down from his “green agenda,” that is to say further taxing the French people (soon to rival Belgium and Germany in the art of  confiscation) and ensuring more unemployment, poverty, and social stress—exacerbated by unchecked third world immigration—that will ultimately tear France apart. 

As soon as Trump is out of the way, Democrats and globalist friendly Republicans will impose similar green taxation and regulation on the American people. However, there is a distinct difference between grumpy French and indolent Americans. The former will go into the street and make their demands known, while the latter are too busy binge watching Netflix to be bothered. 

In America, protest and outrage are now stage managed by the state and promoted by a corporate media. The economy and endless war do not figure into these protests orchestrated by faux leftists. Instead, these foundation lubricated activists are moved to outrage and occasional violence by the color of skin, the preference of gender (real, manufactured, and imagined), and a litany of exaggerated and invented victimization. 

I say faux leftists because today’s SJW dimwits have little in common with old school Marxists and socialists. They were primarily focused on “historical materialism,” the means of production, the plight of the proletariat, and class consciousness. 

Now? Marxism has become “cultural,” that is to say based on what’s between your legs, the color of your skin (this used to be rightfully called racism), and the “human right” to force one group of people to pay for the care and lifestyle of others (including sexual mutilation and abortion). This has led to calls for authoritarianism and violence against the “privileged”—not the banksters and the ruling elite, mind you, but white men in general. This absurdity is megaphoned 24/7 by the corporate media. 

No, there will not be a French Revolution in America. The people here are well-indoctrinated, dumbed-down by “public education,” fed lies and fantasies (the Russians are coming, Trump is the New Hitler), and other distractions, including a decadent in-your-face “entertainment” industry feeding on perversity, violence (while calling for disarmament), promotion of homosexuality, and the normalization of vulgarity. 

Certainly, when the Everything Bubble bursts and misery is rampant, Americans may go into the street, but it will be too late. Meanwhile, many shake their heads at those crazy French, outraged over the economic strip-mining of their country and the globalist mandates of the European Union. 

This will be wiped away, however, by the next episode of Game of Thrones or the Walking Dead.

Cesar Sayoc’s CIA Connection

A post at Investment Watch reveals the non-bomber Cesar Sayoc boasted of his connection to a particularly loathsome CIA agent, Enrique Prado. 

“Sayoc’s social media accounts have now been expunged from the net. But early yesterday morning, an enterprising netizen managed to take a screenshot of Sayoc’s 2016 post,” writes Dr. Eowyn.

Cesar-Sayoc-post-about-great-friend-Enrique-Prado

Prado worked with Cofer Black, a former high level CIA official who became the vice chairman of Blackwater USA. According to Evan Wright, Prado oversaw the CIA’s assassination program and continued the effort when he followed Black to the notorious murder-for-hire group. Prado also worked with the thuggish Contras, known for executing school teachers in Nicaragua. 

After leaving Blackwater, Black formed his own company, The Black Group, an effort to mainstream and corporatize CIA operations. Black’s group merged with Total Intelligence Solutions, LLC. Prado is the CCO (either Chief Channel Officer or Chief Commercial Officer) of Total Intelligence Solutions.

It’s not clear how friendly Sayoc was with Prado. 

Needless to say, this is revelation is highly suspicious. The above screenshot of the post commending Prado may coincide with Sayoc’s personality change. 

It is an established fact the CIA attempted to create a “Manchurian candidate” assassin with its MKUltra program. In 2010, it was reported military veterans claimed a secret program run by the CIA, military intelligence, and university scientists attempted to implant remote control devices in their brains to create assassins. According to Dr. Colin A. Ross, the president and founder of the Colin A. Ross Institute for Psychological Trauma, this program did indeed exist and began its experiments on animals at the  Army’s Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland between 1950 and 1975. 

I don’t know if Sayoc is a remote-controlled patsy. However, I believe the “bombs” hand-delivered to CNN and Democrats are part of a wider effort to discredit President Trump and portray his supporters as crazed right-wing terrorists. 

It is well-known Trump has enemies at the CIA, most notably former director John Brennan, who had his security clearance yanked by the president.

Caravans, Pipe Bombs, and Conspiracy Theories

According to MSNBC, if you believe George Soros is funding the opposition to Donald Trump (to say nothing of his other disruptive projects), you might be an unhinged conspiracy theorist, the sort of person who would send pipe bombs to Soros, Obama, the Clintons, and the White House. 

So unhinged are these deplorables and garbage people they’ll even target Trump with a bomb to make a point. The CNN report I just read didn’t mention the White House bomb, or would-be bomb. There is no way to sort out the truth with professional government script readers telling us what to believe.

One of these professional teleprompter readers, Hans Nichols, says it’s all the fault of Republicans. 

“You have had conservative lawmakers push some conspiracy theories that say George Soros is funding that caravan. You have seen some things that have been clearly debunked, issues that are not actually factual. Republican congresspeople, namely Matt Gaetz down there in Florida, talking about how George Soros is funding that caravan,” said Nichols.

Ah, yes, the election caravan, especially designed to distract you from seriously important issues, for instance a increasingly possible war between the US, China, or Russia, a war that has the potential to end life on planet Earth. 

Few Americans want to think about the national debt and the unraveling dollar, which may soon no longer be the world’s reserve currency. They certainly don’t want to think too hard (or at all) about the forever wars launched by a criminal syndicate, politely called neoconservative in some quarters. 

The latest stunt to rile up the deranged masses—we’re told large numbers (especially millennials) are psychologically affected by Trump—has produced wholly predictable results in the social media mosh pit, a medium where logic has long since departed.

That’s right. A guy who writes for the New York Times believes news stories have a magical affect, able to convert the meek and mild into raving bomb-throwing conspiracy theory terrorists. 

I suppose we might consider this as a conspiracy theory folded into a conspiracy theory, sort of like Winston Churchill’s quip about a riddle wrapped inside an enigma. 

Eichenwald has a few nutty conspiracy theories of his own. For instance, Trump and Putin are colluding to take down the American version of democracy. The folks who come up with such easily debunked nonsense are often nominated for Pulitzers. 

Here’s my very own conspiracy theory—the unacceptable kind: the supposed bombs sent to Soros, the Clintons, Obama, and CNN are merely the latest bit of trickery used by the state to sow chaos, confusion, outrage, and foreboding as the election descends. 

Is it possible the next act in this absurd political theater will be an actual murder of a Republican politician? Next time, one of these bombs may be the real McCoy instead of a dud.

It’s this kind of stuff martial law is made of.

Mystery Ricin Attacker Put Return Address on Envelope

Sputnik reports today the suspect in reported ricin mailings to Trump, Mattis, Cruz, and others is a former Navy sailor.

A former US Navy serviceman is suspected of sending packages with ricin, Fox News reported, citing officials. According to the media, the packages, at least two of which tested positive for ricin, were sent to the Pentagon, the White House and Senator Ted Cruz’s office in Texas this week. The media claims that this was part of a coordinated effort.

How did the feds find this guy so fast? If we can believe news reports, he included a return address on the envelopes sent.

As the officials specified to the media, one of the envelopes, addressed to Defense Secretary James Mattis or the Navy’s top officer, Admiral John Richardson, included a return address, which led investigators to believe that it came from a sailor, whose name has not been disclosed.

Here we have a suspect that is so careless or stupid he or she included a return address, and yet this person was capable of making ricin from castor beans. There are dozens of recipes for ricin extraction from castor beans on the internet. I don’t know how effective these are, or if a person who stupidly puts his return address on an envelope in multiple attempted homicides is capable of following simple instructions.

Chemists disagree with this. They say a process called chromatography—the separation of a mixture—is required to produce a purified form of ricin. “However, the training required to purify ricin to a level at which it becomes a serious threat is not easily mastered,” notes GlobalSecurity.

Update: the envelopes did not contain ricin, merely castor beans. As usual, the corporate media blew this one way out of proportion, but what else is new?

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Pentagon spokeswoman says the suspicious substance found in envelopes turned over to the FBI contained the substance from which the poison ricin is derived, but not ricin itself.

Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman, told reporters traveling with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in Brussels that the substance was castor seeds.

On Tuesday, Pentagon officials said two envelopes that had been suspected of containing ricin were isolated at a Pentagon mail screening facility, then sent to the FBI. They said one envelope was addressed to Mattis, the other to the chief of the U.S. Navy, Adm. John Richardson. No one was injured.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if castor seeds are swallowed the released ricin can cause injury.

Mike Pompeo’s Big Lies 

It is entirely bizarre how an obvious lie can be furbished into truth and this is widely accepted not only by apparatchiks of the war party, but a large segment of the American people.

The Big Lie: Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea are determined to stick their noses in our hallowed elections and take down America because, as Dubya declared, they hate us for our freedoms, etc. 

This idiocy is maintained… well, because it works sufficiently on a dumbed-down public. Joseph Goebbels said that government should adhere to “the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it.” This should be maintained “even at the risk of looking ridiculous.”

Here’s Mike Pompeo, the former Congress critter who emerged from the shadows to run the CIA and now the State Department. Indeed, Mr. Pompeo looks ridiculous, but apparently few seem to notice. It’s an absurdity that may very well result in the end of life on planet Earth. 

Mike knows—and if he doesn’t he’s an intellectual midget—that none of the nations he ticked off during his interview with the propaganda conduit Fox News are responsible for doing anything—even the insignificant—to meddle in our elections. 

One has to wonder if Pompeo got his talking points from the DNC, the masters of election meddling (as Bernie Sanders knows) along with its junior partner in crime, the Republicans. 

The United States has not only meddled in foreign elections, it has also killed people posing a political threat to the establishment and its foreign policy (e.g., Arbenz in Guatemala, Lumumba in the Congo, the decades long attempt to kill Castro, the plot against Hugo Chávez in Venezuela, and much, much more, including the assassinations of Malcolm X, the Kennedy brothers, and Martin Luther King). 

Here’s another Big Lie Pompeo pawned off on the American people. It is truly remarkable anybody believes these brazenly obvious misrepresentations. 

Detainees. Here in America, we have a few of our own. For instance, Jamal Joseph, Laura Whitehorn, Eddie Ellis, Patricia Levasseur, Assata Shakur (née Joanne Chesimard), members of the Bundy family, Edward and Elaine Brown, and others who died while in prison for political thought crime and activism: Richard Williams, Warren Wells, Teddy Jah Heath, Albert Nuh Washington, Merle Austin Africa, and Kuwasi Balagoon. 

It doesn’t matter what we think of the political motivations right or wrong of some of these people, but that’s not the point. All were convicted for thought crimes and refusing to worship the state and its mandates, including those refusing to pay taxes or recognize theft of land and property by the state.

But Pompeo wasn’t talking about America’s political prisoners. Moreover, it is entirely fair to say he doesn’t care about the fate of Uighur Muslims or even Iranian Christians. These are merely pawns in a propaganda war ahead of the real McCoy. 

Mike’s all talk now. He has yet to top the track record of one of his predecessors, Hillary Clinton, responsible for killing Gaddafi in Libya along with 30,000 other Libyans (she cackled live on TV in response to Gaddafi’s brutal murder), and facilitated arming crazed jihadists in Syria in a manufactured war that has claimed the lives of over 600,000 Syrians. 

Talk may soon turn into action in Syria and North Korea despite the fake handshakes and a parroting corporate media dispensing glad tidings about peace and friendship. 

The neoconization of the Trump administration is in full-swing. The Trump-cons are prepared to one-up a vacillating Obama, the man who increased illegal drone attacks in Pakistan, ratcheted up the war on journalists, and won the Noble Peace Prize for his murderous actions in Syria and Libya.
