Michael Moore and Freedom of Speech

 10959850_10202440991861181_8297049850636645370_n

America has been supporting despotic monarchies since, at least, World War II. That thanks to our late, “Great” President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It is disgusting to me and should be to any American that we are so deeply embedded with the tyrants of this world. All in the name of Corporate Greed. But don’t let that stop anyone from decrying Moore as a hypocrite or a fat ass. I think it disgusting how obese MM has become. He looks like a muppet, he’s so fat.

 
Some of the points he makes in his documentaries are very much laden with truths. Yet, he has attacked corporate greed and does profit from the same system. I can’t blame the guy for using the system as it is. He cannot change the whole of the system. He can only make others aware. Certainly, he is a bit of an ass in the way that he gets his point across. I have a certain amount of respect for that, though.
 
My goal in life has always been to comfort the afflicted while afflicting the comfortable. Working within the system is a good way to go about it. The only persons who can work outside of the system are those willing to be outlaws and those who are born to a silver spoon. Moore serves his purpose and I, for one, am glad to have him speaking his truth. His truth is as valid as many others, more valid than some and less than others. To dismiss all of Moore’s work simply because it makes one uncomfortable is unintelligent and speaks more to the listener than the crier.

Moore is still an American. Even if there are aspects of America with which he disagrees. The Conservative Right hates more because he exercises his right to Freedom of Speech. This is hypocritical of the Right. Moore should speak his mind and tell his truth. If that leaves the Right butthurt, so be it. I, for one, can see where Moore has been correct. A good, healthy, open minded reading of history proves Moore to be correct in many of his more salient points in his documentaries. Moore recently stated that snipers were cowards and shot people in the back. Many folks who have been to War agree with this sentiment. A sniper hides and takes shots at folks who have no idea from where they are being sniped. This is the nature of the job. It’s the same in any war, their snipers are murderous cowards. Our snipers are valiant heroes. That’s the nature of propaganda.

It’s the same with insurgents. The Founding Fathers and the Revolutionary heroes such as the Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox, are hailed as heroes. There is not a whole lot of difference in the tactics of Marion and those of ISIS or al Qaeda. Both used terror tactics to achieve a goal of independence. We see it differently only because those tactics when used by ISIS and al Qaeda are an attack on our values and our world view. However, there is no difference. In the American Civil War, Federal Soldiers led by General Sherman raped, pillaged and burned their way through the South. ISIS is doing the same thing in Iraq and Syria. We hail Sherman as a hero for the same actions for which we deem ISIS as villainous and evil.

It’s propaganda. Michael Moore has done nothing more than bring transparency to our hypocrisy and we hate him for it. He’s put a mirror to our face and forced us to peer into our own souls. Sometimes, that viewing leaves us disquieted. This is the nature of what I call Statism. The State wishes us to believe that we are good when we perpetrate evil. We excuse our own excesses. We rationalize our murders and genocidal behaviors. They are evil because they wish that which we do not. It matters not what it is. It only matters that the State tells us that they are wrong and we are right. They are evil. We are righteous. Despite the fact that our actions mirror one another.

Moore is guilty of nothing more than bringing a different perspective to the discussion. We hate him because his perception makes us uncomfortable. That and he is as guilty as the rest of us. He defends or stays silent in the face of the criminality of Obama and the Left. Yet, screams to the heavens when Bush was taking the exact same actions as Obama does now. I am waiting for the Michael Moore treatment of the illegal assassination of Anwar Al Awlaki and his son. Until Moore is as outspoken of the crimes of Obama as he was of the crimes of Bush, I see Moore as nothing more than a Statist propagandist for the Left. I have no respect for the man based on this hypocrisy. That and he is way to intelligent and wealthy to be such an obese monstrosity. He must know that his obesity will kill him.

 
Such is my belief at any rate.

Pedophile Island: Jeffrey Epstein, Bill Clinton and the Sex Slaves of the Democratic Party

002bepstein

Bill Clinton’s Billionaire pal Jeffrey Epstein owned a private island on which he kept trafficked teen girls for years was sentenced to 18 months house arrest.

Bill Clinton, apparently, was a regular visitor to the Epstein Island. At least one witness has stated that Bill was “given” two 17 year old girls when he visited.

Epstein was once “gifted” three 12 Year Old girls by a wealthy pedophile friend from Europe.

No one wants a real trial because the names which could come out. Alan Dershowitz is but one of the pedophiles who frequented the Pedo-Resort Isle owned by Epstein.

Amazing….18 months for years of pedophilia.

Yet, a woman in Florida served 36 months for firing a warning shot at a man who was a threat to her life.

Epstein is, of course,  a major donor to the DNC Mafia Family.

P.S. Bill Cosby is accused of drugging and raping women decades ago. Let’s talk about that instead. We can talk about the victims of Epstein, Clinton and Dershowitz in 2064.

Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It’s Off To War We Go!

fb_share

In America, we send young men and women off to war with parades and balloons. We make it seem as though war is a festival.

Soon, the worm turns.

The political beasts come out of the closet.

But whom do they attack?

Not the Politicians or their Corporate and Banking Masters but the very men and women who were sent off to die and kill.

This is America.

We are a shameful Nation.

The nature of the American Beast can be viewed in the reaction to the movie American Sniper which says something only about those who are using it as a tool of Leftist or Rightest Propaganda. The movie touched on many themes such as PTSD and the effects of war upon the minds and bodies of the men whom Democrats and Republicans sent off to fight wars for Corporate Profit. Remember, you, the people, elected the persons responsible for these wars and the ravagings that occurred to both Iraq/Afghanistan and the peoples who were sent to fight for “Freedom and Democracy.”

Those who would condemn this man because he believed in his National Mythology are as guilty as he. You sent this man to war. You built up our Military as heroes. I cannot count the times that I’ve argued with idiots across the political spectrum about this “hero ethos” with which we have yoked our military. These men and women are not heroes. They are humans. To be sure, some of these folks have acted heroically. By all accounts, Chris Kyle acted heroically at times. In other hours, he was simply human with all of the foibles and pettiness that comes with being such.

This movie speaks to the American Political Consciousness. The reaction of the left is despicable in that they are villifying a pawn for volunteering to fight for America. He volunteered to fight because of the propaganda spewed by American Political Leaders. All of the mad nonsense about the “Greatest Generation.” Now the left condemns him for volunteering. FDR and Wilson were guilty of the same dehumanization of Germans (WW1&2) and Japanese (WW2) and other enemies of America.

Men like Chris Kyle learned to dehumanize the Iraqis and Afghans as well as Muslims by listening to the messages of prior generations. Democrats worship Wilson and FDR. They are listed among the “Great Presidents.” Yet, they were guilty of the same “evils” of which Democrats accuse Kyle and others in today’s military.

The Republican Party is guilty of these same lunatic fabrications. Hero worship of the military. Placing enormous pressure on these men to be superhuman. The Jessica Lynch lies are all one needs to understand. The stomach turns at the fabricated stories surrounding Lynch and others. All in the name of bending the American will to the fight against the enemy. Lynch was raped. She was beaten. She was treated as if she were a dog. All lies. In reality, she was carried to a hospital and left alone. They could have driven up in an SUV and “rescued” her.

Republicans worship these heroes because they have no concept of war and it’s horrors. Obama is as guilty as Bush in all of the war crimes accusations that are being tossed around the dead body of Chris Kyle. The American Political Mafia that we call the GOP/DNC are nothing more than a crime family who use men like Kyle as pawns.

Any of the morons who vote Republican or Democrat in America have the same blood on their hands that they say colors the hands of Chris Kyle. Kyle was a pawn. He and millions of other men and women were used and are being used and will be used by Presidents Bush, Obama and their successors to wage war in the name of Corporate Profit, Open Lanes of Commerce and Western Greed.

The Euros were complicit in these acts as well…including the British.

All of this gnashing of teeth and lamentations to the heavens is only so much wasted energy.

If you play Chess, you win by capturing the King. The pawns are the lowest and least powerful. Kyle was a pawn. The idiots who are decrying and defending this movie can’t see the forest for the trees. Most of them are willfully obtuse. To see clearly would be to admit their own guilt.

In short, these folks are all fooking coonts!

Leftist Angst and Ignorance and the American Sniper

Sniper Chris Kyle
I’ve read that the true measure of heroism is lives saved. By that definition, Kyle was a hero. Many of the lives that he took with his sniper rifle saved the lives of American soldiers who were the targets of the persons whom Kyle killed. These were insurgents bent on shooting, rocketing or planting IEDs with the intent to kill Americans and Iraqis.

Don’t blame Chris Kyle for going to war. Don’t excoriate him for liking or not disliking war. Don’t mock him because he didn’t take a nuanced view of Iraq or Iraqis. Most of the folks who are criticizing this man’s life and military experience have no idea what it is like to be in combat. Most of them are missing the point entirely. Chris Kyle was a pawn in a larger game. Bush and Obama sent him to Iraq to kill and wage war on those whom the US government filled with your elected representatives claim were/are enemies of the United States. This war was never and is still not about Democracy or an existential threat to America. The wars of the past decade and a half have about control of resources. Both Obama and Bush played this game well. They simultaneously played the American people.

Kyle is an easy target. Especially so, since he is dead. The true target of your ire should be the Corporate CEOs, Bankers and Politicians. However, Kyle being the easier target, American Liberals (Democrats) will instead cowardly attack the dead.

The Precedent of Murder & Barack Obama

KillObama-Poster-PNG_Final

I apologize if I sound a bit of the ass.

I always find it surprising the ignorance of the US citizen.

No matter how many times I speak of this I get the deniers. They can’t believe that this has been done by Obama.

My thing is that this “education” is but a google search away.

Google Obama + Assassination + US Citizen

Andrew Napolitano has written about it on several occasions. It’s all over the internet. It’s in books.

I have to wonder if Americans read. Do Americans care.

It seems to me that Americans know only what FOX News (Conservatives) or MSNBC/CNN (Liberals) tell them.

With the internet, “education” is but a few keystrokes away.

Why would anyone need to ask someone else to “educate” them when Google exists?

Alas, I get this all of the time. Especially from Liberals when discussing Obama and his extra-Constitutional activities vis-a-vis Due Process and the taking of Life, Liberty and Property.

This is, after all, what the US Constitution is all about. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. There is no Liberty without the right to property. There is no liberty without the right to life. Life is property. You are your property. All that you own is yours because you are you and you have the right to contract. These rights are guaranteed by the United States Constitution.

Yet, Barack Obama has made himself greater than the US Constitution by granting himself the power to take life of both non-Citizens and US Citizens without due process. He has taken upon himself the “right” to deny the basic right to life from Citizens of the United States of America.

And that is a precedent that is more dangerous than any set before by any US President save, perhaps, Lincoln and FDR.

Yet, the majority of Americans are oblivious that these precedents have been set and, worse still, is that most Americans have no idea of the dangers of these precedents.

#BlackLivesMatter…but, apparently, Brown Lives Don’t.

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

  • No honest man or woman in Germany feels responsible for these things. Good Germans took Nazism as a new religion. These people are shocked by the revelations which have shown that Nazism was not idealism, but a means to the performance of criminal acts…
    In war a German feels bound to join the ranks without question. Three of my sons were called up. I could not hold back. I wrote from the concentration camp to Admiral Raeder, C. in C. of the Navy, asking to be allowed to return to the submarine service or to do any other service in the Navy. I heard nothing for several months, and then a reply came, not from Raeder but from Keitel, head of the Wehrmacht. He thanked me, but regretted I could not be employed on active service.

    • Replying to questions on the atrocities of the concentration camps, at a press conference in Naples, Italy, and confirming that he actually had written a widely publicized letter from such a camp, early in the war, to be permitted to serve in the military (5 June 1945).

#BlackLivesMatter

blm

Black lives matter. All lives matter. No lives matter.

A life matters only to the extent that one makes one’s life matter.

Here is the problem with the “Black Solidarity movement” and “#Blacklivesmatter”

It is almost always a dirtbag at the center of the controversy.

Why should I rally around a movement that centers on Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown? Two lives that had a 99% chance of amounting to nothing but wasted air and tax dollars.

Trayvon Martin was every bit the punk that Zimmerman is. Mike Brown was every bit the idiot and waste of air that is the State Thug that murdered him.

The other guy who was murdered by the Police. I’m seeing him as a mostly innocent victim of Statism. He as assassinated by State Thugs. But he was known to break the laws of the State. For better or worse, he was infamous as being a seller of illegal cigarettes. Illegal because the State wasn’t getting it’s cut. Any citizen who refuses to render unto Caeser is asking for the State to send it’s Army of Thugs to their door for a good beating and possibly an unofficial death sentence.

This is America.

Minorities are an easier target for the State.

And here is one big slap in the face for you.

New York is a Liberal Town. Missouri has been run by the Democrats for decades. Democrats are a part of the State Machinery and Democrats send their State Thugs out into the Street every day just like the GOP does.

To the DNC, Black people are merely modern slaves on a new plantation. Democrats know that Black people are going to vote as a nearly solid block for Democrats. They do not have to do a thing, lift a finger or grant one favor. They need solve nothing. They need do nothing for the Black community such as it is.

Democrats know that regardless of the injustice that exists in the State Machinery and no matter how many State Sponsored Thugs murder Black citizens that Black people will vote for Democrats.

Black people were bought and paid for 50 years ago and only the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons profited. MLK and Malcolm were murdered as part of the bargain.

And still Black people as a community are too ignorant to see the obvious.

Until Black people start voting on issues and look past the DNC to other avenues for political empowerment not one thing will change and no Black Lives will Matter.

Hollywood Liberals know this and know that the majority of Black people will continue to vote Democrat and that the Black community can be used by the DNC to further empower a White Affluent Elite that cares for nothing beyond their own status.

Barack Obama is merely another Democrat who lies to the Black Community while watching them fall further behind the rest of America.

Soon, the Latinos will pass the Black Community as the “people of color” preferred by the DNC.

How much will Black Lives Matter at that point?

If your greatest accomplishment in life is turning food into poop, your life doesn’t matter.

LGBT Will Never Be Normal!

Normal is an adjective. It means:
1. conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal;regular; natural.
2. serving to establish a standard.
3. Psychology.

  1. approximately average in any psychological trait, as intelligence,personality, or emotional adjustment.
  2. free from any mental disorder; sane.

In order for LGBT to become “normal,” the majority of the humans on the globe would have to be Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual or Transgender. The reality is that LGBT are a relative minority. I’ve read that LGBT are less than .01 percent of the World’s Human Population. Therefore, LGBT will never be normal.

All of this talk of making LGBT normal is ludicrous. It is ignorant and it is offensive. The statement behind that “mission” is that everyone except LGBT are abnormal. Non-LGBT are not abnormal. We’re just plain people. Some of my fellow “straight” humans do not like or do not accept or cannot tolerate LGBT humans. I do not understand this completely. However, I do understand how these folks can be and are upset when idiot politicians of the Left stand up and makes statements alluding to the “normality” of homosexuality. Usually, I take these idiot statements as a sign that said politician has no grasp of the English language. If English is, indeed, their native language. No minority is a norm.

European or “White” people aren’t a “norm” in the world. Humans of European descent are a relative minority in the world. We can’t make being “White” the norm any more than politicians can make LGBT a norm.

That said, there is a goal that is reachable. I’m not talking about tolerance. Tolerance is a lie. Tolerance is the Great White Lie of the American and European Political Left. To tolerate something or someone is to endure something or to permit something to happen or exist. Tolerance lends to the opinion that LGBT should be permitted to be themselves.

This is no goal. Does a human being endowed with all of the natural rights which humans are supposed to possess inherently need a “by your leave” permission slip from humanity to be themselves and to retain their natural rights? I think not. However, this is what the Political Left would have us believe. I defy this lunacy. I would spit in the eye of the despot who demanded that I seek permission to be who I am. I would hope that my fellow humans who are LGBT would feel the same. If not, ’tis too late. They have already lost themselves as has anyone who feels the need to seek permission to be themselves.

The goal should be acceptance. We should all accept others as they are and not as we would have them be. There are exceptions to this. A mass murderer should not be accepted (OBVIOUSLY). LGBT persons are no more abnormal than I. They simply are not the norm of humanity. They are different. They have different goals and desires. That said, they should not be treated as a dangerous anomaly.  They should be treated as fellow humans with all of the natural rights of their fellow humans. That is all. They should be accepted and allowed to forge their own path.

I may or may not agree with homosexuality. However, this is of no consequence. The actions of a homosexual or LGBT human that do not negative affect my natural rights are of no consequence to me. First do no harm. That is the rule by which we should all live and I can think of many, many more humans who do harm first before I would list an LGBT simply because they  happen to be an LGBT.

To accept something or someone is to reconcile oneself to that some one or thing. It is to come to an accommodation. It is to concede or admit formally. We should accept our fellow humans as they are. If needs be, we should accommodate them. As long as a fellow human means us no harm and poses no risk, why should we not accept them.

There is no risk posed by an LGBT that is not similarly posed by others. I know many people who pose risks to us who are not LGBT who are accepted with very little argumentation. Politicians are one such animal. If I am to accept Barack Obama as my President, I can see no reason that I should not accept that LGBT are simply my fellow humans and worthy of my respect and acceptance as such.

Coach Cal VS White America and the College Athlete Indentured Servitude System

anthony-davis-basketball-usa-basketball-showcase-850x560

I’ve always been curious as to the difference between Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and millions of other human beings who stop short of graduation at Universities to fulfill their goals and pursue their dreams.

Perhaps, it’s because so many “One and Done” Basketball players are Black and Whitey in America can’t stand to see a Black human being shorting the byzantine “education” system which they themselves cannot short.

There’s that old race card. Doh!

Seriously, though, why is it a “crime” for a person who wishes to pursue a career (albeit a short career) as a professional Basketball athlete to do so without obtaining a College Degree? What about Basketball requires a 4 year degree? Nothing that I can see. A more mind boggling aspect of this asinine argument is that most college degrees are worthless while pursuit of said worthless scrap of paper is creating more debt for Americans than home ownership. Yet, an athlete who has the opportunity to earn millions of dollars over a 3 to 15 year period is supposed to desire a college degree so much so that he (or she) delays earning said millions in order to obtain said worthless scrap of paper while putting himself at risk of injury and a loss of possible future earnings. Is that insane or am I not seeing some “big picture?”

Also, why is it not a viable course for these persons, if they should wish to acquire/earn a degree, that they not return to college AFTER they have finished their career as an NBA or other league professional athlete?

This seems to me to be naught but the “hating” of untalented people upon those persons blessed with the talents necessary to pursue the NBA profession.

No one seems to care all that much when Baseball athletes go to the league straight out of HS or two years out of College.

No one cared when Tiger Woods quit Stanford to pursue his goal of competing professionally at Golf.

No one cared/cares that Bill Gates didn’t finish at MIT. Same for Steve Jobs.

The only gnashing of teeth and faux concern seems to be for Basketball athletes.

This seems odd to me.

Then we have Calipari who is teaching/coaching/mentoring/advising some of these top kids on their way to their professional goals. In any other endeavor, Calipari would be seen in a positive light. Not so, though, because he is doing so with athletes who wish to pursue a goal of playing basketball in the NBA.

I find this odd. I find it hypocritical. I find it lunatic.

But…you guys go on gnashing your teeth, pulling out your hair, flagellating your backs and lamenting to the heavens the horrible sin of coaching young men and assisting those who wish to pursue the goal of reaching the NBA.

Cal has a fairly decent track record of placing these top recruits into the NBA. No other coach comes close.

But Cal is a villain for helping these guys reach their goals.

Only in White America is it possible to help folks and be vilified for having done so.

Kabul — A Return to the Past

“If there is a paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, it is this!” is the inscription on Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur’s Mausoleum in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Of all the cities conquered by Babur Khan in the founding of the Moghul Empire, Kabul held a special place of honor in his heart.  It was his city of dreams.  It was the city that gave rise to his empire.  In 1504, Babur came out of the mountains of Ghor after having traveled through snowdrifts higher than the tallest of his men.  Those mountains and those surrounding all of Kabul are part of the Hindu Kush (aka the Hindu Killer).  Babur would cross those mountains again in his conquest of the Punjab.  His descendants would build beautiful edifices such as the Taj Mahal.  Babur himself died in Delhi and was interred in a Mausoleum in Agra despite his fervent desire to be buried in Kabul.  Some years later, his son Humayun is said to have moved his remains to Kabul where they were laid in what came to be known as the Bagh-e Babur or Babur’s Gardens.
Kabul predates the great Mughal Emperor by some two to three thousand years.  The city has seen it’s share of famous visitors — Genghis, of course, being one of the most famous.  Seven hundred years later, the Soviets invaded Afghanistan and take the capital.  Not long after the Soviet invasion, events that would lead to the American invasion were set in motion.
On a dark winter night in 1979 not long after the Soviets occupied Afghanistan, the people of Kabul gathered on their rooftops.  The men yelled “Allahu Akhbar” and fired Kalashnikov rifles into the air.  The women sounded off as well.  They stood on their rooftops ululating in the time honored manner of Islamic women sending their men off to war.  This signaled the beginning of the Mujahideen insurgency in Central and Eastern Afghanistan.  A decade later, Soviet Lieutenant General Boris Gromov walked across the the Amu Darya River as the last Soviet soldier to depart Afghanistan.
Almost immediately after the Soviets departed, the Mujahideen commanders fell into civil war fighting for control of the country.  Kabul had been largely untouched by the Mujahideen insurgency during the Soviet occupation.  The city was not so fortunate at the hands of the Mujahideen.  The Mujahideen commanders such as Rashid Doostum and Gulbuddin Hekmetyar staked out areas like street gangs in American ghettoes and proceeded to bombard each other with captured Soviet Artillery and Armor.  Whole neighborhoods were flattened.  The Mujahideen raped, pillaged and brought near complete destruction to Kabul.   What the Soviets had left untouched, the Mujahideen had virtually destroyed.  The residents of the Kabul who had earlier greeted the Mujahideen as liberators from the Soviet puppets now fled the city to refugee camps in Pakistan, Iran and out to Europe via Central Asia.

After a series of defeats and setbacks at the hands of the Ahmad Shah Massoud led Northern Alliance, the Taliban entered Kabul.   They were hailed as conquering heroes and restorers of law and order.  They wasted little time in declaring the new Islamic Caliphate of Afghanistan.  They emplaced sharia as the law of the land and replaced Radio Kabul with Radio Sharia.  Soon thereafter, televisions, music and dancing were outlawed.  Girl schools were closed.  Women were confined to the home or forced to wear the burqa in public.  Men were made to grow beards and shave their heads on pain of public beating.  Religious police brutally beat Afghans for the slightest infractions.  There were beard patrols that checked to ensure that beards were at least fist length meaning that if the religious police grabbed one’s beard in his fist and one’s beard did not protrude from the bottom of his fist, you were beaten.  The five daily prayers were made mandatory.  Any Muslim who was late or not in attendance was beaten flailed mercilessly.  Public executions and medieval punishments became the norm in Kabul’s Olympic Stadium.

A few years after the Taliban took Kabul, Osama bin Laden sought political refuge in Afghanistan.  The Saudis had stripped him of his citizenship.  The United States had pressured Sudan into deporting bin Laden from his safe haven in Khartoum.  Osama contacted Mullah Omar and was given permission to fly with his family and entourage into the country.  Osama took up residence in the South at Karnak Farms but had other places of refuge throughout the South and East.
It was from Afghanistan that Osama planned his 9-11 attacks.  Once those plans were carried out and the Twin Towers fell, President George Bush demanded that Mullah Omar surrender Osama or suffer the consequences.  Mullah Omar refused to bow to Washington’s pressure.  The invasion started soon thereafter and Kabul fell in short order.
An Afghan friend told me that he sat on a place called Antenna Hill overlooking Kabul as the rockets fell on the city.  He watched as Coalition forces entered the city from the North and East and the Taliban fled to the South.  I visited Antenna Hill while I was in Afghanistan.  The whole of the city is visible from that vantage.  I could imagine events unfolding as they had in 2001.  Six year later in 2007, I was returning to Kabul for a third time.  This time, I would spend eight weeks preparing to train Afghan Police in Western Afghanistan.

In and Around Kabul

These are photos that I have taken in and around Kabul over the past couple of years. Kabul is a bit dangerous. It’s also a fun place. I have never had a bad experience in the city. Chicken Street is a riot even if it is a bit pricey these days. City Centre is a nice place to have a cup of coffee on the roof and survey the city. The Kabul Coffee House is a great place for an Ice Mocha with other ex-pats. Night time at Wazir Akhbar Khan Line 15 is a great place to dance the night away or have a few drinks and check out all of the femme ex-pats, Chinese hookers or Filipina gals. The Marco Polo Restaurant is good for excellent Italian cuisine. Some of the Chinese Restaurants actually serve chinese food. lol

I do know of people who have had terrible experiences there. One friend of mine was beaten badly in a roust of the local underground clubs. The “police” took him outside and beat him until his ribs were bruised black and blue. Then took him to their “police station” and kindly accepted a couple hundred dollars for his release. During this same raid, a group of Filipina girls were taken out and raped repeatedly. This set off a huge international incident. The Chinese “Restaurants” are raided about once every three months. Any place that sells alcohol is subject to being raided by one faction or another. Womens Beauty salons can be raided at any time if they are accused of being houses of prostitution. The accusation of prostitution can stem from an incident as simple as a local Mullah walking by and hearing loud laughter. Police at checkpoints will attempt to bribe you for a 20 spot to pass through their territory. This is easily defeated by stating loudly and aggressively that you are US Army and not backing down. This works as I’ve used it. The local police are scared to death of the US Army. Now that I train them and am on cheek kissing terms with the local Regional Commander, I’m pretty much untouchable. Not that I go off post alone these days. Since being hired by this new company and moving to the West, it’s UAV MILCON or nothing. Can’t go wrong in an armored vehicle.

This place wasn’t always so terrifying and violent. Before the Taliban, before the War of the Warlords. Back when the King was attempting to enact liberal reforms. Kabul was a haven for dope smoking hippies. That was the 60s and 70s. Kabul was also a Euro holiday spot. Places like Mazar-e Sherif, Ghazni and Herat, even Q’andahar, were tourist spots as well. Of course, that all came to a screeching halt when the Soviets came crashing in to install peace and prosperity at the tip of the communist sword. Back in 2006. As I was driving around, I did see a few tourist running around. I saw a couple of backpackers in September of 2007 sneaking around Kabul and I’ve heard of the occasional tourist and backpacker passing through Herat since I’ve been here. It will be years before the tourists come back in any respectable numbers due to the terror element. Such a shame. There is much to be seen and much to experience in Afghanistan.

2 years and three days from the date of this photo, the life of this city would be altered forever. The Twin Towers in New York would fall and the US Army would invade Afghanistan. Bombing Kabul and deposing the taliban and their medieval reign. The city and it’s people will recover and nothing will ever be the same. Some will be thankful. Others will fight.

Having driven around Kabul a fair amount, I know the city fairly well. It’s odd to look at this map and see how it used to be. Major landmarks of today are missing from the view. The American Embassy Compound. Massoud Circle Monument. Of course, Massoud was still alive in 1999. It would be two years later that the cowardly al Qaeda assassins murder Massoud with a bomb hidden in a video camera. Not until 2002 or 2003 that the American Embassy compound begins construction. The old airport facilities have begun to be torn down and today there is a new facility built by the coalition and run by a British company.

The safe houses in which we stay when I move through Kabul are not there nor are the Indian and Iranian Embassies. Camp Eggers is still a group of houses. I’m guessing they are vacated as when the US first inhabited that compound there were years old animal carcasses found laying about.

Kabul has changed quite a bit since this picture was taken.

In 1999, the taliban were running around beating men for not having 3 inches of beard. They were shooting women for adultery. The men, of course, were given 20 lashes or so for having been bewitched by those women. Women were not allowed to walk the streets of Kabul without a relative male escort. All manner of medieval lunacy ruled the streets of Kabul under the reign of terror imposed by the Taliban and their Pakistan and al Qaeda sponsors.

Today, though Kabul still convulses in violence on the odd occasion, it is a city much like any other in Central Asia. No Westerner coming for the first time would think it civilized. Comparatively speaking, though, Kabul is normalized. The bazaars are open. Shop keepers go about their daily business. The citizens of Kabul are free to come and go as they please. Women can be seen walking the streets alone and in pairs. No male escort required. Unless, of course, they are family of one of the backward thinking members of the Muslim community. Kids walk the streets. Students going to and from Kabul University and a plethora of schools from primary to High School. There are snooker halls and gyms open all over the city. Restaurants are everywhere. Poorly maintained cell towers. Even shopping malls have sprung up here and there.

Taken as a whole, Kabul is not a bad city. The corruption of the Karzai government is ubiquitous. Seen everywhere. From the police who patrol the streets and man the central stations to the government officials who earn 10 to 20 thousand dollars a year, yet, own million dollar homes dotted across the city land scape and surrounding neighborhoods.

It’s interesting to see this bit of history. An apparition from the near past. So much has changed. So much altered. Both progress and regression.

I wonder what it will look like in another decade. Will chaos rule again or will the Afghan people move ahead and persevere despite the leaders that look to profit from the violence and chaos?

“The Reality Manufacturing Company paints a mural of reality for the masses; the Company paints a bigger and bigger mural, entangling more people in more systems…” (The Magician Awakes, Jon Rappoport)

Behind every phony pandemic, there are a number of agendas in play.

In this case, the Globalist heavy hitters, who are dedicated to managing the planet, view things this way:

***Use a crisis to build a larger structure than previously existed.

As in: one global healthcare system. All-encompassing.

The propaganda? “We can’t defeat Ebola unless all nations form one system that allows prevention and quarantine and immediate treatment anywhere on Earth.”

In that sense, Ebola is the occasion for adding wings to the system.

Ditto for every so-called epidemic.

Dear Black People [of Ferguson and the USA]

Hey there! How ya doin’?

Lots of us out here empathize with you. Lots of us have actually sided with you. However, when you decide that directing violence against random White people simply because they are White People is the right and proper thing to do, you lose all of the support and empathy.

Racism is racism. Bigotry is bigotry. These acts are self defeating. These acts are what your enemies want.

The people who did this to you are YOUR community leaders. The person who killed Mike Brown is a Police Officer. Random White Dude walking down the street did not kill Mike Brown. I realize that passions are high. At times such as these, it may seem that it is you against the world. I say to you that it’s not you against the world.

There are Americans out there who agree that there are issues at hand here that need to be resolved. You targeting people who have done you no harm makes any kind of resolution or real conversation impossible. Be rational. Don’t be complete fucking idiots. Think before you act. Stop targeting businesses owned by regular people.

I can’t, for the life of me, understand why you have not staged “sit-ins” and such at your local city, county and State bf1a3dd8215d3841c68a36962fb7d93fGovernments. These are the real oppressors. White dude sitting at a red light is not your enemy. The Police are the enemy. The County Prosecutor is your enemy. The District Attorney is your enemy. The people in your local government are your enemy in this fight. The State Government and the Federal Government are your enemy.

Yes, that includes Barack Obama. I know this is difficult to reconcile but while you are attacking random White guy just because he is random White guy, the Federal Government is militarizing your Local and State Police and making possible, ney making it certain, that your local police will treat you not with the respect of a citizen but with the disdain of an enemy combatant. Barack Obama has done much to further the programs that are militarizing our Nation’s Police Forces.

You can, if you wish, continue to  blindly support Obama as he makes your lives harder, oppresses you at the hands of Billionaires and lies that he’s “here for you” and that he’s “surprised and angered” by the situation. However, he’s not. He’s a part of the system that had led you to this moment. Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and the rest of our politicians stand right there with him against you and against the rest of us.

mettheenemyI know. Barack is Black. It was a proud moment. However, he’s not your friend. Any more than the criminal who steals your last few dollars is your friend. He’s a politician. He’s no different than George W. Bush.

So, stop targeting random White dude who is just as much a pawn of the State as are you. Direct your angst against the Government. Demand change. Real change. March against them.

Join with your fellow pawns (White, Latino, Asian & Arab Citizens) and march against your government. If you allow them to divide you by fomenting racial angst instead of political angst, you are already defeated.

Your government has betrayed you…from the President on down to your local council person.

The Sins of White Guilt Liberals & Corrupt Black Politicians

PLEASE STOP HELPING US: HOW LIBERALS MAKE IT HARDER FOR BLACKS TO SUCCEED
By Jason L. Riley
Encounter, $23.99, 184 pages

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. famously said we are a “nation of cowards” when it comes to discussing race. Jason Riley is not one of them. The Wall Street Journal editorial board member’s new book, “Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed,” is a moment of clarity in a tempest of confusion over the impact of social-welfare policy on blacks, particularly in light of recent commemorations of the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Well meaning White Liberals need to get the fuck out of the way and let Black people solve their own problems.

Corrupt Black Politicians such as Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Eric Holder need to get out of the way and stop hindering Black progress.

All of the idiots paving the way to hell with their good intentions need to shut the fuck up and take their own path to hell.

People will amaze you with their ingenuity and their capability if only well meaning morons would simply get the fuck out of the way.

Obama ~ Worst “Professor” in Chicago University History

obama

Barack Obama was, apparently, universally hated and only given position as a political stepping stone. I’m not surprised by this.

I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).

It seems that every position held by Barack Obama was handed to him on a silver platter. He hasn’t earned anything in life. This explains his “you didn’t earn that” attitude towards the accomplishments of everyone else in the world. Of course, he feels that you didn’t earn your position or life’s rewards. He has never earned anything in life. He believes that everyone else has been handed their life on a silver platter as well.

Barack Obama is a sham. WORST….PRESIDENT….EVER! and a more pitiful human being.

And there is this. His own people are turning against him in droves. When Chris Matthews and Charles Krauthammer agree that you are incompetent and inept, you have issues.

Matthews also stated that columnist Charles Krauthammer’s accusation that the president is a “bystander” to problems that happen under his watch was made “brilliantly.”

UNC Tarheels is as DIRTY as the rest of them.

BBW_unc_cover030314

The grades for athletes, though, inflated their GPAs and had a hand in keeping them eligible to play. Under Williams, who became UNC’s head coach in 2003, men’s basketball players accounted for 136 enrollments in the paper classes.

That is the whole team. An average of 13 classes each year for the Men’s Basketball Team alone. That speaks volumes about the McCants’ accusations. If the NCAA doesn’t vacate UNC Championships, then the NCAA should be disbanded. Period. These skunks (NCAA) have been covering for the Triangle Schools for decades.

Favorable rulings in the Maggette case at Duke. Julius Peppers rulings that allowed UNC to keep their Final Four banner and games in which Peppers played.

Peppers won’t care about any of this. In 2010, he signed a 6-year, $91.5 million contract with $42 million of that guaranteed. Why would he care that the school bricked and his sub 2.0 GPA is out there for the world to see? (It is a FERPA violation, though.)

The NCAA might find it interesting, though. How was Peppers eligible with such a bad GPA? Were grades changed? And perhaps more importantly, the classes he did well in were the AFAM classes … you know, the ones that have been heavily scrutinized.

UNC and Duke are dirty programs in the same way that UMASS and Memphis and Kentucky are called dirty programs.

They have been exposed.

If there are no sanctions levied against UNC, there is no justice. Memphis, Michigan and every other program which has ever been sanctioned by the NCAA should take the issue to court. The NCAA has covered for UNC and Duke for long enough. It is time for this to end.

Another issue is that of UCLA under Wooden. How the NCAA allows UCLA to maintain all of their titles and wins after the revelations of cheating under Wooden is mind boggling. The NCAA whitewashed the whole Wooden era. Wooden as much as said that he turned a blind eye to the cheating. The NCAA has never addressed the issue.

Likewise, the Kansas/Arthur issue was whitewashed. Arthur was ineligible for the last Kansas Championship season. It’s been proven. Yet, the NCAA has never addressed the issue. Preferring to sweep that corruption under the rug.

If UCLA, Duke and UNC can maintain all of their wins, UNLV, USC, Michigan, Memphis, Kentucky and every other school which has had wins vacated due to NCAA violations should add every game back to their statistics and tell the NCAA to take a hike.

The NCAA is more corrupt than any school against which they have levied sanctions.

There is no difference between the Maggette/Duke scandal and the Camby/UMASS scandal. The UNC Academic scandal is 100X worse than the Rose/Memphis scandal.

Calipari should take the NCAA to court over both of those issue. Memphis, if they had an ounce of intestinal fortitude, would join in the lawsuit.

The NCAA picks and chooses whom they wish to sanction, not based upon their rule book, but based upon whom they fear and whom they love. If they have no fear of you or if they have no love for a Coach or a School, sanctions apply. If they love you or fear you, you can get away with everything short of murder. Although, I doubt they’d do anything to Coach K even if he was caught stabbing one of his players in the chest on Youtube.

Former Duke player Corey Maggette admitted taking cash from a booster Despite fears they would have to give back over $200,000 in NCAA Tournament revenue and stripped of their Final Four appearance in 2000, Duke was never punished by the NCAA after an investigation determined Duke coaches were unaware of the payments.

A 2003 New Orleans Times-Picayune investigation (article not available online) revealed that former Duke guard Chris Duhon’s mother “landed a job working for a Duke booster; co-workers say the job opening was never posted and that Harper was overpaid and lacked qualifications.”

In 2010, former Duke player Lance Thomas was sued for failing to repay an alleged $67,800 credit to a jeweler. The NCAA did not find any violations after an investigation.

Maggette was ineligible. Duke keeps Championsip.

Obama is Wrong. Marriage is not a Right. Nor is it a Privilege

President Obama believes that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. “Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-sex marriage in all 50 states,” he said in an interview published Monday in TheNew Yorker. While Obama said he believes states are legally required under the Constitution to allow same-sex marriages, his administration has not yet made that case before the Supreme Court. Also in the interview, Obama spoke favorably about the Supreme Court’s recent decision not to interfere with lower court rulings on gay marriage. “In some ways, the decision that was just handed down to not do anything about what states are doing on same-sex marriage may end up being as consequential—from my perspective, a positive sense—as anything that’s been done,” he said. “Given the direction of society, for the court to have allowed the process to play out the way it has may make the shift less controversial and more lasting.”

Marriage is not a right. Any marriage.

Marriage is a contract between two persons.

That contract should be in no way controlled, legislated or affected by governments. It should be between two persons.

All marriages should be legitimate or no marriages should be legitimate.

Legal constructions should be recognized as civil unions. Civil Unions should be recognized universally and should be a contract between two persons. Either all civil unions should be recognized or no civil unions should be recognized.

Insurance companies should be mandated legislatively to recognize all civil unions.

None of these contracts should be refused by the government based upon religion as this is unconstitutional. Religion has no place in any Free Government, in general, or the United States Government specifically
