AUMF: Authorization for Use of Military Force For Grandparents

This message is for American grandparents and the topic is:

AUMF: AUMF 2001: Public Law 107-40:
AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE

We invite you to join the leaderless and loose-knit bipartisan/nonpartisan coalition of Democratic, Republican, third-party, independent, apolitical and even anti-political American citizens rallying behind “H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force”, a bill now before the United States Congress which will hobble the Imperial Presidency created under Dubya and Darth by the post 9/11 AUMF, the USA Patriot Act, the REAL ID Act and hundreds of Executive Orders and National Security Letters … expanded under Odrona the Indefinite Detainer by NDAA 2012, H.R. 347 and H.R. 658 plus hundreds more Executive Orders and National Security Letters … and culminating in the creation of a vast Military/Intelligence/HomelandSecurity/CounterTerrorism Industrial Complex that operates above and outside of the law, unaccountable to the People, impenetrable by the Freedom of Information Act, and unanswerable to our courts.

The Imperial Presidency headed by corporate fascist puppet Barack Obama claims the right under NDAA 2012 to indefinitely detain American citizens on American soil without charge or trial, and the right under AUMF 2001 to kill those same American citizens with domestic drone strikes and without due process of law. That means that either their targets or the collateral damage from their attacks could include you, your children or your grandchildren.

Your innocent grandchildren are probably too young and naive to fight for their freedom or protect themselves, and your children are probably too self-involved or techno-stupefied to recognize the threat to their lives and liberties. That leaves you, the grandparent, as their only hope for salvation.

The grandparents of America allowed all of this to happen. The grandparents of America cowered when they should have asked questions … allowed themselves to be distracted when they should have demanded answers … and sat back and watched television as our Constitution and Bill Of Rights were decimated, and our once-great Republic slid from Freedom to Fascism. The grandparents of America danced when they should have been demonstrating, and now it is time they pay the fiddler.

If you are an American grandparent above the age of 50, then you know what I say is true. And if you truly love your grandchildren, then you should know what you must do. If you are not sure where to begin, you can start here:

NDAA 2013: Drones, Permanent War And Indefinite Detention Without Charge Or Trial For American Citizens On American Soil

NDAA 2013

While mainstream media keeps the Sheeple distracted with Christmas classics and inconsistent reporting about killings in Connecticut, Amerika’s corporate fascist puppet Congress quietly hacks away at habeus corpus.

“In recent decades we have lost sight of the historic achievement that empowered the individual. The religious, legal and political roots of this great achievement are no longer reverently taught in high schools, colleges and universities or respected by our government. The voices that reach us through the millennia and connect us to our culture are being silenced by ‘political correctness’ and ‘the war on terror.’ Prayer has been driven from schools and Christian religious symbols from public life. Constitutional protections have been diminished by hegemonic political ambitions. Indefinite detention, torture, and murder are now acknowledged practices of the United States government. The historic achievement of due process has been rolled back. Tyranny has re-emerged.”–Paul Craig Roberts

“Over the past two years, the Obama administration has been secretly developing a new blueprint for pursuing terrorists, a next-generation targeting list called the ‘disposition matrix’… Although the matrix is a work in progress, the effort to create it reflects a reality setting in among the nation’s counterterrorism ranks: The United States’ conventional wars are winding down, but the government expects to continue adding names to kill or capture lists for years… The Obama administration has touted its successes against the terrorist network, formally acknowledging for the first time the United States’ use of armed drones. Less visible is the extent to which Obama has institutionalized the highly classified practice of targeted killing, transforming ad-hoc elements into a counterterrorism infrastructure capable of sustaining a seemingly PERMANENT WAR.”–Greg Miller

“[T]he legal foundation for U.S. counterterrorism strategy is partially based on “the Congressional authorization to use military force” (AUMF) that was passed after 9/11… Specifically it seems to be based on an interpretation of the AUMF that was “reaffirmed” by the indefinite detention clause of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)… This explains why Obama is fighting so hard to keep the indefinite detention clause in effect… In court the government argued that the indefinite detention clause is simply a “reaffirmation” of the Authorization Use Of Military Force (AUMF), which gives the president authority “to use all necessary and appropriate force against those … [who] aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001 or harbored such organizations or persons.” In the NDAA lawsuit, the government argued that the NDAA §1021 is simply an ‘affirmation’ or ‘reaffirmation’ of the AUMF… But the NDAA adds language to the AUMF when it says ‘The President also has the authority to detain persons who were part of or substantially supported, Taliban or al-Qaida forces or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, INCLUDING ANY PERSON WHO HAS COMMITTED A BELLIGERENT ACT, or has directly supported hostilities, in the aid of such enemy forces.’ That extra part is what Judge Katherine Forrest ruled unconstitutionally vague.”–Michael Kelley

“It may seem like imprisoning an American citizen without charges or trial transgresses against the United States Constitution and basic norms of Western justice dating back to the Magna Carta… It may seem like reiterating the right to due process contained in the 5th Amendment would be uncontroversial… It may seem like a United States senator would be widely ridiculed for suggesting that American citizens can be imprisoned indefinitely without chargers or trial, and that if numerous U.S. senators took that position, the press would treat the issue with at least as much urgency as “the fiscal cliff” or the possibility of a new assault weapons bill or likely nominees for Cabinet posts… It may seem like the American citizens who vocally fret about the importance of adhering to the text of the Constitution would object as loudly as anyone to the prospect of indefinite detention… But it isn’t so.”–Conor Friedersdorf

“Lawmakers charged with merging the House and Senate versions of the National Defense Authorization Act decided on Tuesday to drop a provision that would have explicitly barred the military from holding American citizens and permanent residents in indefinite detention without trial as terrorism suspects, according to Congressional staff members familiar with the negotiations.”–Charlie Savage

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/19/us/politics/congressional-committee-is-said-to-drop-ban-on-indefinite-detention-of-citizens.html

“Over the past year I and other plaintiffs including Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsberg have pressed a lawsuit in the federal courts to nullify Section 1021(b)(2) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This egregious section, which permits the government to use the military to detain U.S. citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers, could have been easily fixed by Congress. The Senate and House had the opportunity this month to include in the 2013 version of the NDAA an unequivocal statement that all U.S. citizens would be exempt from 1021(b)(2), leaving the section to apply only to foreigners. But restoring due process for citizens was something the Republicans and the Democrats, along with the White House, refused to do. The fate of some of our most basic and important rights—ones enshrined in the Bill of Rights as well as the Fourth and Fifth amendments of the Constitution—will be decided in the next few months in the courts. If the courts fail us, a gulag state will be cemented into place.”–Chris Hedges

NDAA 2012 Update: Odrona Demands Dismissal Of Section 1021 Injunction

Odrona The Indefinite Detainer NDAA

Corporate puppet and wannabe fascist dictator Barack Obama aka Bushbama aka Bushbamney wants to keep the power to make you disappear asserted in AUMF 2001.

NDAA 2012 UPDATE: ODRONA DEMANDS DISMISSAL OF SECTION 1021 INJUNCTION

“Dissent without civil disobedience is consent.”-Henry David Thoreau

In the case of Christopher Hedges et al v. Barack Obama et al (Case 1:12-cv-00331-KBF) the fascist regime of corporate puppet president Barack Bushbamney Odrona just filed its brief in opposition to a permanent injunction against the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial provisions of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012|Public Law 112–81), which passed both houses of Congress with broad bipartisan – as in both Democratic and Republican – support before being signed into law by Obama last New Year’s Eve while you were out celebrating and he was in Hawaii and a safe distance away from the protest you never made. Their Preliminary Statement reads as follows:

)(

Defendants Barack Obama,Leon Panetta, and the Department of Defense (collectively, the “government”) respectfully submit this memorandum in opposition to plaintiffs’ request for a permanent injunction against the operation of a portion of section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, Pub. L. 112-81, 125 Stat. 1298 (Dec. 31, 2011) (the “NDAA”), and in support of the government’s request that the Court enter final judgment in its favor.

Plaintiffs present a truly extraordinary claim in this action. They seek to enjoin the operation of a statute enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President, a statute that codifies a longstanding Executive military-detention authority that has been upheld by the courts, and therefore enjoys the endorsement of all three branches of the government. While that alone would be an ambitious endeavor, plaintiffs reach even further, and claim that they, as journalists and activists, may obtain an injunction to invalidate the statute on its face, to apply worldwide, and, most unusually, to prohibit certain uses of the military detention authority exercised by the United States and the Commander-in-Chief during an ongoing armed conflict. Any one of those facts should cause extreme hesitation by the Court; taken together, they require the most exacting scrutiny to ensure that if the judicial power is to be exercised in such a far-reaching manner it is clearly within the Court’s jurisdiction to do so. Yet plaintiffs cannot come close to establishing that jurisdiction, as they cannot carry their burden of demonstrating even the basic elements of standing. They claim they fear military detention, based on an erroneous interpretation of the statute that would extend its scope in direct contradiction of the statute’s words, and with no regard for the context that gives it meaning. They persist in asserting that interpretation even though it is contravened by over a decade of history; they cannot point to a single example of the military’s detaining anyone for engaging in conduct even remotely similar to the type of expressive activities they allege could lead to detention. And they continue to seek unprecedented injunctive relief despite already obtaining assurance from the government in this case that based on their allegations they are not detainable under this statute. Plaintiffs therefore have fallen far short of meeting their burden to show they have been injured by the statute; their complaints are the types of generalized grievances of allegedly unlawful government conduct that have been repeatedly held insufficient to support standing.

Even if plaintiffs had some cognizable injuries, those harms would not be redressed by an injunction against section 1021; as plaintiffs themselves acknowledge, such an injunction would have “nil” effect, for the government would continue to possess the identical detention authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Plaintiffs thus would achieve no meaningful relief from the injunction they seek, and lack standing for that reason as well. Because plaintiffs lack standing, this Court need not (and must not) unnecessarily decide the constitutional questions plaintiffs present.

If it were necessary to reach the merits, plaintiffs’ claims would fail. Their facial and overbreadth challenges, if even appropriate in this context, founder on the indisputable fact that section 1021 has a plainly legitimate sweep that dwarfs the purported infringement on free expression; indeed, the statute is not even aimed at speech or expressive conduct. Nor is the statute unconstitutionally vague: it does not prohibit any conduct and therefore is not even subject to vagueness analysis. Even if it were it would still be valid, as its meaning as informed by context is more than clear enough to meet constitutional standards. All of plaintiffs’ claims on the merits fail, but in particular none of their theories can come close to justifying the invalidation of the non-punitive war-time authority that Congress affirmed in section 1021.

For all those reasons, the Court should enter judgment for the government.

Undeserved: Bushbamney’s Nobel Peace Prize, Peres’ Medal of Freedom, Sarsak’s Starvation in Indefinite Detention

Undeserved Obama Peres Sarsak

Undeserving Nobel Peace Prize recipient Obama awards Medal of Freedom to fellow war criminal Peres while soccer player Mahmoud Sarsak starves in Israeli jail.

UNDESERVED: BUSHBAMNEY’S NOBEL PEACE PRIZE, PERES’ MEDAL OF FREEDOM, SARSAK’S STARVATION IN INDEFINITE DETENTION

In a cruel twist of irony, Israeli President Shimon Peres was honored Wednesday night [6/13/2012] with the “Presidential Medal of Freedom” at a lavish White House feast while Mahmoud Sarsak, rising Palestinian soccer star, nears death by starvation. Sarsak is now on his 87th day of hunger strike to demand the basic human freedoms denied him by Peres’ government. To add insult to injury, Shimon Peres used this opportunity to present Obama with a petition to free an Israeli spy, Jonathan Pollard, who was caught leaking Pentagon secrets.

Peres is a man of extensive military and even insurgent background, who adopted religious views more extreme than the rest of his community. Peres has been quoted as saying that, as a child in Poland, he smashed his parents’ radio because they were listening during Sabbath. He joined the Haganah at a young age, an armed Jewish militia responsible for massacres, mass displacement and other human rights abuses. After the establishment of the state of Israel, Peres was in charge of the government’s weapons dealing. He was a fierce advocate of settlement activity, especially in his early career. He has been Minister of state, defense, communication, transportation and immigrant absorption, Prime Minister and is currently President. In his political career he has overseen massacres, wars, occupation, discrimination, human rights abuses, the breaking of political treaties and spearheaded Israel’s nuclear proliferation. His government currently detains Mahmoud Sarsak and over 500 other Palestinian political prisoners without charge or trial, against international human rights law.

According to his family, Mahmoud Sarsak had never cared about politics and spent all his waking moments thinking about and playing soccer. The Sarsaks are refugees from the city of Ashdod (approximately 20 miles south of Tel Aviv) but Mahmoud grew up in a refugee camp in southern Gaza. As a very young child, he excelled at playing soccer and by eleven he was already representing Palestine in the Youth Olympic Games in Tehran. He played on several teams including the Gaza Youth Sports Club and Rafah Sports Club. Due to the limited resources in the southern Gaza Strip, Sarsak moved to the north to play professionally. Soon outgrowing the Gazan league, Sarsak was selected to join one of the leading West Bank clubs. In 2009, he received the permits that Israel requires to go from one Palestinian territory to another and headed off to the West Bank to realize his dreams. Without any warning or explanation, Sarsak was arrested en route by the Israeli military. From his 2009 arrest until today, his peak athletic years have been wasted in Israeli jails. His detention under the vague “Unlawful Combatant” law [comparable to the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA 2012 as signed by Bushbamney on 12/31/2011] has been continually renewed without charge, trial or even allegation. Now he has spent almost three months in non-violent protest against the injustices leveled against him. Even if he survives his hunger strike, he will face many health issues that will prevent him from being a professional or possibly even recreational athlete.

Hors d’oevres and trophies for the militant, starvation and death for the peaceful civilian athlete. What kind of message are we in America trying to send to the world by giving freedom medals to the violent, and depriving the non-violent of their freedom?

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

If you are charged with a crime in Amerika, you are guilty unless you are rich. If you are struck by a drone from Amerika, you are guilty unless you survive.

 

AMERIKA: NEITHER LAND OF THE FREE NOR HOME OF THE BRAVE

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”–Goethe

As things stand, when corporate fascist puppet president Bushbamney signs NDAA 2013 (H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013), bipartisan-sponsored Amendment 114 (based on H.R. 5736) will make it legal for the U.S. government to use Nazi Germany Goebbels-style “Big Lie” propaganda on its own citizens. And no doubt one of the biggest lies our ruling elite’s Demopublican operatives will continue selling us is that America is “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. That may have been somewhat accurate at some point in in our checkered past, but it’s certainly not true in today’s post-NDAA 2012 (Public Law 112-81) Fourth Reich “Amerika”.

 

LAND OF THE FREE?

How can Amerika be the land of the free when we have more laws on the books – and more people in prison for allegedly breaking them – than any other nation in the world?

Doubt that? Read this:

“So which country has the most laws regulating its citizenry? After looking high and low I discovered that the country with the most laws – not just today, but in all of history is… the United States. We not only have the most laws in all of history, but we also turn out more new laws and regulations to manage our people every single year than most countries turn out in decades.

http://tinyurl.com/7xp4l6f

“These new laws have come with an infusion of money into an expanded security system on the state and federal levels, including more public surveillance cameras, tens of thousands of security personnel and a massive expansion of a terrorist-chasing bureaucracy.”

http://tinyurl.com/88sq98d

“Half of the world’s prison population of about nine million is held in the US, China or Russia. Prison rates in the US are the world’s highest, at 724 people per 100,000.”


http://tinyurl.com/zkw7v

“Incarceration in the United States is one of the main forms of punishment and/or rehabilitation for the commission of felony and other offenses. The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. At year-end 2009 it was 743 adults incarcerated per 100,000 population. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2010 – about 0.7% of adults in the U.S. resident population. Additionally, 4,933,667 adults at year-end 2009 were on probation or on parole.”


http://tinyurl.com/6m7dr6

 

HOME OF THE BRAVE?

How can Amerika be the home of the brave when our cowardly and illegal drone attacks are killing thousands of innocent civilians – many falsely counted as “combatants”, “militants” or “terrorists” – while at the same time more of our troops commit suicide every year than get killed in action?

Doubt that? Read this:

“Drones raise questions about the growing disconnect between the American public and its wars. Military ethicists concede that drones can turn war into a video game and, with no Americans directly at risk, more easily draw the United States into conflicts… The number of civilian deaths caused by drone strikes is unclear, and hotly contested. A report in February 2012 by the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism said that drone strikes on suspected militants in Pakistan have repeatedly targeted rescuers who responded to the scene of a strike, as well as mourners at subsequent funerals.”

http://tinyurl.com/kqtjwl

In Pakistan (an American “ally”) alone, through mid-August last year as many as 2,956 people were killed and another 1,158 injured by U.S. drone attacks. Many were labelled “militants”, but the death toll includes at least 175 children and as many as 781 verified civilians. Despite all this collateral damage, no more than 150 “named militants” were killed. And again, these statistics are for Pakistan alone. How many more innocent children, women and men have Bushbamney’s immoral drone strikes murdered in Afghanistan, the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere?

http://tinyurl.com/3es3tez

“Mr. Obama embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.”


http://tinyurl.com/6mpvawo

“From 2005 to 2010, [U.S.] service members took their own lives at a rate of approximately one every 36 hours. While suicides in the Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard have been relatively stable and lower than those of the ground forces, U.S. Army suicides have climbed steadily since 2004. The Army reported a record-high number of suicides in July 2011 with the deaths of 33 active and reserve component service members reported as suicides. Suicides in the Marine Corps increased steadily from 2006 to 2009, dipping slightly in 2010. It is impossible, given the paucity of current data, to determine the suicide rate among veterans with any accuracy. However, the VA estimates that a veteran dies by suicide every 80 minutes. Moreover, although only 1 percent of Americans have served in the military, former service members represent 20 percent of suicides in the United States.”

http://tinyurl.com/3stynxb

“For the second year (2010) in a row, more US soldiers killed themselves (468) than died in combat (462). ‘If you… know the one thing that causes people to commit suicide, please let us know,’ General Peter Chiarelli told the Army Times, ‘because we don’t know.’ Suicide is a tragic but predictable human reaction to being asked to kill – and watch your friends be killed – particularly when it’s for a war based on lies.”

NDAA 2012 Codified Indefinite Detention. Now NDAA 2013 Legalizes Domestic Propaganda.

NDAA 2013

America’s two-party tyranny has authorized endless wars, warrantless surveillance, homeland drones and indefinite detention. Now they’re legalizing the Big Lie.

NDAA 2012 CODIFIED INDEFINITE DETENTION. NOW NDAA 2013 LEGALIZES DOMESTIC PROPAGANDA.

What the Democrats and Republicans agree on is far more damaging and dangerous than the wedge issues on which they supposedly don’t. We saw that last year with the enactment of Public Law 112-81, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012), which had bipartisan sponsorship and sailed through both House and Senate with overwhelming bipartisan majority support. Now acceleratedly close on its heels comes H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (NDAA 2013), which glided through the House with broad bipartisan support on May 18 and is now in the hands of the Senate:

Attached to that bill is a bipartisan-sponsored amendment summarized as follows:

“Amendment No. 114 – Reps. Thornberry (R-TX) and Smith (D-WA): The amendment would amend the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (known as the Smith-Mundt Act) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1986 and 1987 to clarify the authorities of the Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to prepare, disseminate and use public diplomacy information [propaganda] abroad and to strike the current ban on domestic dissemination of such material. The amendment would clarify that the Smith-Mundt Act’s provisions related to public diplomacy information [propaganda] do not apply to other federal departments or agencies (including the DoD).”

The full text of the amendment is assumed to be H.R. 5736, euphemistically labelled the “Smith Mundt Modernization Act of 2013”. You can read that here:

This amendment legalizes what many think the government has been doing for years anyway: using false propaganda to influence the decisions and control the minds of its own citizens. According to Buzzfeed:

“The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts – the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987 – that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns… The new law would give sweeping powers to the government to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. ‘It removes the protection for Americans,’ says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. ‘It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false…’ Critics of the bill point out that there was rigorous debate when Smith Mundt passed, and the fact that this is so ‘under the radar,’ as the Pentagon official puts it, is troubling… The evaporation of Smith-Mundt and other provisions to safeguard U.S. citizens against government propaganda campaigns is part of a larger trend within the diplomatic and military establishment… In December, the Pentagon used software to monitor the Twitter debate over Bradley Manning’s pre-trial hearing; another program being developed by the Pentagon would design software to create ‘sock puppets’ on social media outlets [such as Facebook, Twitter and online forums]; and, last year, General William Caldwell, deployed an information operations team under his command that had been trained in psychological operations to influence visiting American politicians to Kabul.”

DemandProgress.org asserts that “The NDAA amendment legalizing mass propaganda campaigns would remove all distinction between a hostile foreign audience and American one, turning the massive information operation apparatus within the federal government against its own people.” They offer yet another online petition/email campaign to oppose it, but many consider such initiatives to be impotent slacktivism:

Our rapidly accelerating descent into Orwellian police-state fascism will not be stopped or even slowed by signing one online petition or one thousand. And it won’t be reversed at the ballot box, because voting either Democrat or Republican keeps the same corporate-controlled oligopoly in power, and voting any other way is at best an act of defiance:

Our only solution is to take to the streets and quickly – before the drones overhead control our every move, and the droning of TVs and flickering of monitors our every thought.

American Elections: False Choices Hiding Other False Choices

Elections Fraud: Rigged Voting Machines

The American elections perpetually televised by our Kleptocracy-controlled media are a smokescreen of false choices distracting attention from even more false choices. At the presidential level and likely others, our election results are predetermined: If not by the billions poured into brainwashing voters through the media, then by rigging the voting machines and if necessary having a tainted judiciary overrule recounts:

Hacking Democracy

Peace!

This Orwellian subterfuge distracts the attention of the Sheeple from other false choices that have far more impact than which corporate puppet gets to sit in the Oval Office for four years. Those choices currently include: the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA) – a loss of real freedoms in return for protection from fabricated threats; the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA) – Internet censorship disguised as intellectual property protection; and the Keystone XL Pipeline Project – which will give us dirty energy and ditch-digging jobs at an ecological cost that may include the main water supply for the American Heartland – approval for which was accelerated by a clause buried in the recent Payroll Tax Cut legislation that received bipartisan praise. This deceptive spin and doublespeak has been going on for years, and will continue at an ever-accelerating pace now that Corporate Fascist Puppet President Barack Hussein Obama signed away our Bill of Rights on New Year’s Eve, while we were watching balls drop and he was in Hawaii, about as far away as he could be from the uprising of an angry citizenry that never materialized…

IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT OF THE LAST 14 U.S. PRESIDENTS, 7 HAVE BEEN DEMOCRATS AND 7 HAVE BEEN REPUBLICANS.

Mainstream media focuses on America’s two-year election cycles as if who wins or loses in the swinging of the pendulum was a matter of life or death, when in fact even at the Presidential level it makes no more difference than the outcomes of Monday Night Football, American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, Hillbilly Handfishing, the trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor, or the latest Kardashian crisis. Our elections are staged to give Sheeple the illusion of control so they will (a) vent their frustrations and expend their energy, emotions and resources supporting or attacking the Puppet on the Left hand or the Puppet on the Right, and consequently (b) never recognize and challenge the common omnipotent Puppetmaster. As long as corporations own the politicians, it’s futile to believe we can “CHANGE” things with our votes.

NO MORE LEFT. NO MORE RIGHT. TIME TO UNITE. STAND AND FIGHT!
