Preparing De Facto Those USA Interment Camps

hitler-gun-control

JUST WHEN YOU THINK LIFE is already coming at you at breakneck blistering speed, and you can't possibly grab, grip, or grapple with any more Beckspeak for the moment, something or someone else roars in to ramp up the gulag guzzle a few more notches (not that we don't need every hook and handle to help snatch this wobbling nation back from the claws of the death vultures). But every day a new crisis rodeo. Every hour five or six new opinions render us into helpless participants trapped inside this culture-jamming information box nicking us for energy bent on how to solve the latest what happened, who did it, and why puzzle. The soft belly of someone else's agony, somebody else's disgrace, unknown and unrelated to us, wears us down until we know nothing else unless we have already turned off and become compartmental robots geared only to please ourselves, for who can honestly separate our short measures of divine service and empty gestures for these people or those over there? This time it's Ranger Joe from over at American Thinker with an eyeful of rocket's red glare:

The cocky overconfidence of the forces of George Soros and his pointman Obama say they intend to win 2012 by any means necessary. It's already over but the fraudulent vote count. The war on Libya is based on a Soros theory of strategic humanitarian intervention to create an open global society and is being implemented by his disciple General Samantha Power-Sunnstein. The throne of America from which to collapse capitalism once and for all and establish the New World Order is way too tasty to relinquish. It's all over but the mass arrests of reactionary rightist thought criminals and bread lines. Even the body count of an armed citizen's rebellion is factored into their equation. They are relying on it as a stealth method to reduce excess population and render the people governable. Libya is a rehearsal for the quashing of rebellions and to establish strategic Middle East staging areas for the the Battle of Armageddon to eradicate the Jews. I'm sure Soros has a fifth column of Quislings embedded in Israel. The mission of Marx and his disciple Alinsky and the Mohammedan Caliphate is everything....We the People of the United States are nothing but disposable chaff. This so-called blunder is strategic. The games have begun.

From the other side of the fold, we chuckle like someone who's just pilfered the last french fry from the platter at the splash the Donald recently made on the View, calm, but with firm resolve to be told the truth. Yep, he just wants to see it.

Obama is still a mystery. No friends, no girlfriends, no boyfriends, no co-workers, no employees, no employers, no managers, no professors, no students, no teammates in sports, no teachers. Where is his past?

Very bizarre, don't you think? Are you ready for the internment camps erected for unbelievers just to get away from it all?

Is Congressman Pete King The Pocket Rocket of CAIR?

Now the bricks lay on Grand Street
Where the neon madmen climb.
They all fall there so perfectly,
It all seems so well timed.
An' here I sit so patiently
Waiting to find out what price
You have to pay to get out of
Going through all these things twice.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.
—Bob Dylan, 1966

WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHY Peter King has not only failed to call Islamic experts Robert Spencer and Steve Emerson to the stand in his “radical” Islam hearings, but now he has also bowed down to Islamic pressure again and has stated he will not call Hirsi Ali to the stand. In return for not using these three very knowledgeable non-and-ex-Muslims as witnesses, King has said he will go with mostly Muslims and Arabs to make his case.

Does Congressman King even begin to realize that Islam encourages Muslims to lie in defense of Islam at ALL TIMES?

Pete King has always shown us a tough New York demeanor, ready to talk hard when required, always the first patriot on the line, a no nonsense character one wouldn't want to cross, but suddenly he appears to have been lured into bed by the deservedly tarred and feathered Council on American-Islamic Relations. I do not ask rhetorically, but demand to know, how much longer until the truth is made know about CAIR, its strategic, pernicious, unjustifiable intentions, and the disgusting insult to American intelligence that it represents...

Mr. King, we encourage you take the time to pursue the hard-won comprehension of these witnesses you have allowed CAIR to dissuade you from hearing. The body of plain evidence they represent, much of it linked here as a good beginning will not be a struggle to comprehend but will an eyeopener for any loyal patriot like yourself. You will learn that CAIR is a liar's club, not to be trusted, better to be avoided, even shunned, until they are legally prosecuted or disbanded. The American nation needs you to understand the full reprehensible story of the Camp of Islam...

Congress Pushes Bill To Create Internet Kill Switch

Joe Lieberman

ORWELL LIVES! EVEN AS EGYPT'S GOVERNMENT attempts to crackdown on street protests by shutting down internet and mobile phone services, the US is preparing to reintroduce a bill that could be used to shut down the Internet, a kill switch. The legislation, which would grant presidential powers to seize control of and even shut down the internet, would soon be reintroduced to a Senate committee, Wired.com reported. It was initially introduced last year but expired with a new Congress. The proposed legislation, introduced into the US Senate by independent senator Joe Lieberman, who is chairman of the US Homeland Security committee, seeks to grant the President broad emergency powers over the internet in times of national emergency.

Last year, Lieberman argued the bill was necessary to "preserve those networks and assets and our country and protect our people". He said that, for all its allure, the internet could also be a "dangerous place with electronic pipelines that run directly into everything from our personal bank accounts to key infrastructure to government and industrial secrets". US economic security, national security and public safety were now all at risk from new kinds of enemies, including "cyber warriors, cyber spies, cyber terrorists and cyber criminals". Although the bill was targetted at protecting the US, many have said it would also affect other nations.

According to Renesys, a US Internet monitoring company, Egypt's four main internet service providers cut off international access to their customers in a near simultaneous move at 2234 GMT on Thursday. Around 23 million Egyptians have either regular or occasional access to the internet, according to official figures, more than a quarter of the population.

One of Australia's top communications experts, University of Sydney associate professor Bjorn Landfeldt, had previously railed against the idea, saying shutting down the internet would "inflict an enormous damage on the entire world". He said it would be like giving a single country "the right to poison the atmosphere, or poison the ocean".

The scale of Egypt's crackdown on the internet and mobile phones amid deadly protests against the rule of President Hosni Mubarak is unprecedented in the history of the web, experts have said. US President Barack Obama, social networking sites and rights groups around the world all condemned the moves by Egyptian authorities to stop activists using mobile phones and cyber technology to organise rallies. "It's a first in the history of the internet," Rik Ferguson, an expert for Trend Micro, the world's third biggest computer security firm, said.

Julien Coulon, co-founder of Cedexis, a French internet performance monitoring and traffic management system, added: "In 24 hours we have lost 97 per cent of Egyptian internet traffic". Despite this, many Egyptians are finding ways to get access, some using international telephone numbers to gain access to dial-up internet. According to Renesys, a US Internet monitoring company, Egypt's four main internet service providers cut off international access to their customers in a near simultaneous move at 2234 GMT on Thursday. Around 23 million Egyptians have either regular or occasional access to the internet, according to official figures, more than a quarter of the population.

"In an action unprecedented in internet history, the Egyptian government appears to have ordered service providers to shut down all international connections to the internet," James Cowie of Renesys said in a blog post.

Daniel Ellsberg Disappointed In Obama

dellsberg1

Daniel Ellsberg

FROM THE OLD DEMOCRATS' battered and bruised perspective Daniel Ellsberg is merely another “there’s no place else to go” justifier. To these hard-working and intelligent folks the Democrat Party was all they knew. Lifers, all of them, with nary a glance towards the Other Side they viewed as down-right criminal without ever actually investigating them before Palin came along and utterly stupid beyond measurement. But theirs was another Democratic Party they thought, a party of one person, one vote, a party of egregious progress and open-hearted morality, but those warm memories and smart dreams were created long before Obama and his thug corps cracked the party wide open and left these folks, mostly women, without a political home. I'm talking, of course about the PUMA movement, which had nothing one might imagine to do with Daniel Ellsburg until his timely interview with SPEIGEL ONLINE.

Ellsberg is a former United States military analyst employed by the RAND Corporation who precipitated a national political controversy in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret Pentagon study of US government decision-making about the Vietnam War, to The New York Times and other newspapers.

Legendary leaker of the “Pentagon Papers” during the Nixon administration, he still has a bone to pick with the White House. In an interview with SPIEGEL ONLINE, the 79-year-old peace activist accuses President Barack Obama of betraying his election promises—in Iraq, in Afghanistan and on civil liberties, of deceiving the public.

Ellsberg, speaking at length, said, "I voted for him and I will probably vote for him again, as opposed to the Republicans. But I believe his administration in some key aspects is nothing other than the third term of the Bush administration. He’s a good politician. He said what he needed to say to get elected, and now he’s just taking advantage of the office. Like any administration before, his administration caters to the profits of big corporations like BP and Goldman Sachs—even though I think BP won’t get off that easily this time. His early campaign contributions, the big corporate contributions, came from Wall Street. They got their money’s worth"

SPIEGEL ONLINE: But Obama has been very verbal about his criticism of Wall Street.

Ellsberg held his ground, stating, "His actions are totally uncoupled from his public statements. I don’t even listen anymore."

Reads word for word like the Hillaryocrats mantra we've been monitoring since that lost and frightful summer of '08. It's chilling actually to realize that someone like Daniel Ellsberg could be so easily fooled by the styrofoam messiah...

More to the point is the zeal and speed of this paradigm shift we've witnessed since the riveting James Carville moment. Like a shot over the bow, Carville signalled for blood, making it okay for others to come out of the covers. Claws visibly retracted beyond the call of duty in an obviously corrupt administration, many have finally stepped up to pop the Obama bubble. The media cloak, the pundits, and even Hollywood on steroids, each have finally exhaled. And that's how the whistle blows.

Once again we learn that people on both sides of the political aisle are slow learners, often just plain gullible, the way politicians prefer their voters, barefoot, poor, and damned near always two faced flushed into the kool-aid, or worse—corroded and corrupt to the bone. My guess is all of the above exist in ample portion. May God save us all.

The Thin Veneer Of Cultural Iconology

Fifth Avenue

The Thin Veneer of Cultural Iconology

In his article—Confessions of a Cultural Drop-out—published by Pajamas Media, Victor Davis Hanson slays the huffing and puffing dragon of popular culture by assessing the thin veneer of cultural iconology as it swishes by with no apparent staying power. His last few paragraphs begin with eerily the same language I just this past weekend used to describe my own general malaise which can also be summarily dismissed as simple aging by those who, in Kierkegaard's terms, simply refuse to make distinctions , so I start here...

A FINAL, ODD OBSERVATION. As I have dropped out of contemporary American culture and retreated inside some sort of 1950s time-warp, in a strange fashion of compensation for non-participation, I have tried to remain more engaged than ever in the country’s political and military crises, which are acute and growing. One’s distancing from the popular culture of movies, TV, newspapers, and establishment culture makes one perhaps wish to overcompensate in other directions, from the trivial to the important.

Lately more than ever I try to obey the speed limit, overpay my taxes, pay more estimates and withholding than I need, pay all the property taxes at once, pick up trash I see on the sidewalk, try to be overly polite to strangers in line, always stop on the freeway when I see an elderly person or single woman with a flat, leave 20% tips, let cars cut me off in the parking lot (not in my youth, not for a second), and patronize as many of Selma’s small businesses as I can (from the hardware store to insurance to cars). I don’t necessarily do that out of any sense of personal ethics, but rather because in these increasingly crass and lawless times, we all have to try something, even symbolically, to restore some common thread to the frayed veneer of American civilization, to balance the rips from a Letterman attack on Palin’s 14-year-old daughter or a Serena Williams’ threat to a line judge, or the President’s communication director’s praise of Mao, civilization’s most lethal mass murderer, or all of what I described above.

I don’t fathom the attraction of a Kanye West (I know that name after his outburst), a David Letterman, Van Jones, Michael Moore (all parasitic on the very culture they mock), or the New York Review of Books or People Magazine (they seem about the same in their world view). So goodbye to all that.

Horace called this reactionary nostalgia the delusion of a laudator temporis acti, the grouchy praiser of times past for the sake of being past. Perhaps. But I see the trend of many ignoring the old touchstones of popular entertainment and life as a rejection of establishment culture—a disbelief in, or utter unconcern with, what elites now offer as valuable on criteria that have nothing to do with merit or value. I was supposed to listen to Dan Rather because Murrow once worked for CBS? I am to go to the Cinema 16 because Hollywood once made Gone With the Wind or On the Waterfront?

I don’t particularly like the idea that I want little to do with contemporary culture. But I feel it nonetheless—and sense many of you do as well.

But don't neglect reading it all..
