TEA PARTY END GAME

March 8, 2011 Leave a comment

“Germany votes for Hitler! The fighter for freedom and prosperity!” 1932 Nazi poster.

Virtually from the beginning, the Tea Party has been marked by an inadequate understanding of the necessity of a consistent conservative ideology.  The latest manifestation of its corrupted philosophy is the Tea Party’s call, in late February, to counter protest the nationwide solidarity rallies held in support of the public sector workers in Wisconsin.  Charmed by slick Neocons, posing as ‘limited government’ conservatives, loyal followers dutifully showed up to wave Gadsden flags and yell across the street at fellow Americans defending their standard of living.  Long forgotten are the Tea Party’s founding principles of restoring the Constitution in the fight against Big Govt socialism.  Also forgotten is that, that includes a fight against National Socialism.

Bought off by crony capitalists, ‘balance-the-budget’ Republicans are headlong into the mission to bust unions.  Trimming expenditures is a diversion.  Politically disempowering workers is a necessary corollary of building a police state and a war society.  History repeats:

The working people of Germany, like the working people of other nations, had little to gain personally by war. While labor is usually brought around to the support of the nation at war, labor by and large is a pacific, though by no means a pacifist force in the world. The working people of Germany had not forgotten in 1933 how heavy the yoke of the war lord can be. It was the workingmen who had joined the sailors and soldiers in the revolt of 1918 to end the First World War. The Nazis had neither forgiven nor forgotten. The Nazi program required that this part of the German population not only be stripped of power to resist diversion of its scanty comforts to armament, but also be wheedled or whipped into new and unheard of sacrifices as part of the Nazi war preparation. Labor must be cowed, and that meant its organizations and means of cohesion and defense must be destroyed.  Nuremberg Trials: Opening Address for the United States.

Certainly, in the short run, war can mean an increase in jobs and wages.  Historically, however, the more conscious elements of labor have realized, and agitated, that it is the poor and the working class who will be used as cannon fodder in the very lucrative business of war.  Today, those politics are not class based.  Indeed, beyond economic class, they are shared by, not only liberals, but conservatives as well.  The awareness of the fiat money private banking system as the financial engine of illegal wars, and other entitlements, and its subsequent effect of debt slavery, have transcendent implications.

It can be argued that a public sector union does not fit into the traditional definition of an organization that defends workers against for-profit employers (capitalists).  Theoretically, the taxpayer and voter can hardly be compared to 19th century robber barons.  If so, it can also be argued further within a free market context:  If you don’t like the goods and services your municipality delivers, then move.  Take your dollars elsewhere.  The reality remains that all people have the right to negotiate with their employers.  The real problem is not that there are too many, and too big, public sector unions.  The real problem is that there is too much public sector.  Since 2007 government employs more people than the private sector and the ratio is expected to favor government, increasingly, for years to come.

It’s called, fascism.  As government grows it grows to tighten and consolidate control for the ruling oligarchy.  As big government merges with big business the line between public and private enterprise will become blurred.  To be sure, the assault on collective bargaining rights of public workers will set the precedent for the same attacks on workers in private industries benefiting from federal bailout rescues. 

Ron Paul (R) TX: The most consistent constitutionalist in Congress.

The Tea Party originated as a pro- Constitution, freedom movement.  9/11 truth seekers were also included.  It arose organically related to the Ron Paul antiwar liberty message.  We have now reached the point, however, where it is primed and ready to muster on any given day and shout down labor protests.  It has become a political action arm for the neocon financial elite.  The consummate betrayal and pièce de résistance of co-optation has found expression in Michele Bachmann’s recent vote to extend the Patriot Act.  For those of us that have been paying attention, this comes as no surprise.

Energized by the Ron Paul 2008 presidential campaign folks of like mind came together and formed various groups to promulgate a return to our country’s founding principles.  Here in Boulder, we already had a Campaign for Liberty (CFL) Meetup organized and in action by mid-2007 in anticipation.  Although Paul failed to get the GOP nomination, the reincarnated liberty meme spread and many rank-and-file conservatives found new life and meaning in the growing Tea Party movement.  The numbers swelling in proportion to Change angst, they were ripe for GOP opportunism.  Republican Party activists, and other phony patriots, rushed in to happily volunteer new avenues.

Seemingly, ideological corruption popped up everywhere, and in unexpected places, overnight. Imagine my consternation to visit our local CFL Meetup site and see that the new organizer had changed the name to The Boulder Campaign for Liberty and 9.12 Group.  Fox News creation, Glenn Beck, leads the 9.12 Project, allegedly a grassroots patriot outfit.  Beck is adept at taking genuine patriotic sentiment and spinning it into pro-war jingoism.  An obvious media agent of preserving left/right polarization, he denigrated and sabotaged Ron Paul during his 2008 bid and will assuredly do the same if Paul runs again in 2012.

Chafing from the idea that the national CFL still held loyal to Paul and his uncompromising principles, some GOP operatives broke away and formed their own ‘liberty’ groups.  The nonsense reasoning that it is better to win with Bush clones than to lose with strict constitutionalists lured many from the fold.  The inescapable result was the 2010 elections that saw more than a few local authentic libertarian candidates forced to share the GOP ticket with congressional candidates still peddling the Islamophobic War-on-Terror myth.

Watching the Tea Party go from a genuine people’s anti-tyranny mass movement to what it is today has been maddening.  There is a global rebellion against the warmonger banker cartel and they have chosen to side with the forces of reaction.  From Ohio to Cairo the buzzword, “austerity”, is revealed as a smokescreen for banker rape and repression.

As if on cue, Michael Moore, the rock star of Left gate keeping and ruling elite court jester, has recently volunteered his contribution to maintaining the proper balance of the left/right paradigm.  He stated:

We’re not broke. This country is not broke. The state of Wisconsin is not broke. There’s a ton of cash in this country. . . . What’s happened is that we’ve allowed a vast majority of that cash to be concentrated in the hands of just a few people. . . . They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own – they’re putting it someplace else, they have no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. . . . I think we need to go back to taxing these people at the proper rates. They need to – we need to see these jobs as something that we own, that we collectively own as Americans and you can’t just steal our jobs and take them someplace else.

Well, true, the banksters have milled out plenty of fiat money.  Econ 101, however, may not jive with communist philosophy.  No matter that Moore skillfully weaves in the sore point of outsourcing, equitable distribution of worthless paper will not lead to prosperity.  The financial cartel designed dollar collapse has only one end game.

Teary-eyed pleas to television viewers warn of the Muslim-atheist threat to our way of life.  Labor unions are depicted as greedy, Marxist led organizations out to destroy our economy and incite thuggery.  An atmosphere is generated eerily reminiscent of a past era when demagogues railed against so called Jewish-Communist conspiracies.

In the years directly after World War 1, Germany suffered high unemployment and runaway inflation.  Communists and socialists squared off against fascists.  Both sides preached totalitarian quick-fix ideologies and battled in the streets.  It was Yes We Can! versus Yes We Will! We know the rest of the story:  Ordo ab chao.  Lost from the mix was the third alternative: The simple idea of individual freedom.

Ardent Ron Paul supporters are wishful to recapture their rightful legacy and resume full leadership of the Tea Party.  It will prove to be an ideological cul-de-sac, however, to expect liberty politics to reside comfortably in any organization thoroughly co-opted by Neocons.  Its time for the third alternative to go on its own.  If history repeats, the prize will go to the revolutionary party with the most consistent and believable ideology.

9/11: CFL Fumbles, Dems Run With It

October 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Many 'Truthers' in CFL ranks

Ron Paul and his Campaign for Liberty (CFL) have worked tirelessly for freedom and for the restoration of the Constitution.  A progenitor of the Tea Party movement, its message of anti-statism and personal liberty has come to undeniably influence a major rebellion against Big Govt.  A populist denunciation of corporatist fascism is apparent in the 2010 midterm elections.

Born amid neoconservative betrayal of GOP principles, the CFL is the real hope and change to stop endless wars of aggression and occupation.  It has been singularly outspoken and defiant against the spurious “War on Terror” inspired police state. 

However, as in every classic epic, the hero has a fatal flaw that will prove to be his undoing later in the story.  For Ron Paul and the CFL leadership, the obvious Achilles heel is their silence on the truth of 9/11.  Dodging this issue in the obsession to win elections will prove to be a costly tactical error.  The evidence of 9/11 being an inside job abounds.  Further, to even the casual student of history, it is a blatant repeat of a “burning of the Reichstag” to terrorize the population into submission to tyranny and illegal wars of conquest.  It is the 800 pound gorilla in the living room we pretend is not there.  No, actually, it’s the halfwit cousin that always ruins the family reunion, but we keep inviting him because we think it’s the right thing to do.

Thanks to the present Faux News induced conservative mindset, the right thing to do for Republican Party candidates is to talk tough on terrorism.  If they don’t.., well, the fear of losing their power base eclipses any sincere motive to stand by a commitment to freedom.  In large part, the 2010 elections will be defined as a substantial boost for neocons repackaged as Tea Party patriots and as a disappointment for those hoping to stop the New World Order. 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2010                    
Colorado Democratic Party Calls for Grand Jury Investigation of 9/11

No surprise here.  Backed into a corner, career Democrat politicians, facing the prospect of pink slips, will be looking closer at 9/11.  A false flag event occurring under a Republican administration, it is ripe, and waiting, to be exploited by desperate progressives witnessing their demise.  Rest assured, though, any new investigation instigated by the left-wing of “The Powers That Be” will be a whitewash as much as the original 9/11 Commission Report .  Truthers need not get excited.

The real tragedy lies in the fact that Dr. Paul and the hierarchy of the CFL have dropped the ball.  Democrats will use 9/11 to demonize all Republicans; neocon, Tea Partier, and Paulista, alike.  Ironically, the activists,  to whom it was incumbent upon to expose and destroy the New World Order, have handed 9/11 to those that are imposing a controlled and regulated society.  9/11 will be a tool for merely bashing Bush, the Republican, and not a rightful rallying point to expose and defeat the financial power elite.  Hopefully, this recent announcement by Colorado Democrats will spur freedom lovers to do the real right thing.

[1] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2010                                                      
Colorado Democratic Party Calls for Grand Jury Investigation of 9/11
 The 2010 Colorado Democratic Party platform, approved by the 146 member platform committee states:  “The Colorado Democratic Party calls for the establishment of a truly independent Grand Jury and public investigation in order to find the truth of the September 11, 2001 attacks.”  This controversial plank was added to the State Democratic Party Platform after evidence supporting the critical need for a new investigation was presented at several caucuses in 2004, 2008, and 2010.  The citizens who presented arguments for a new investigation at their precinct caucuses are signatories to the Architect and Engineers for 9/11 Truth organization (ae911Truth.org) which calls for a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. The quality of evidence contradicting the official 9/11 story is substantiated in part by the 2010 Platform Committee Chairman Hal Bidlack’s statement: “ ….this platform represents the consensus of the 2010 Platform Committee, guided by the results of county assemblies across our state.  

The folks who worked tirelessly on the Committee can rightly be proud of their efforts, and deserve our special thanks.” (Bidlack’s statement can be found on page one of the 2010 platform)  In the upcoming Colorado election, Green Party U.S. Senatorial candidate Bob Kinsey and District One U.S. Representative candidate Gary Swing have publicly stated they would support a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001.  Clarifying information can be found at: www.ae911Truth.orgwww.911PressForTruth.comwww.911Truth.orgwww.911Research.wtc7.net,www.stj911.orgwww.911Review.com, and www.BuildingWhat.org.

The Tea Party in a Time of War

September 3, 2010 Leave a comment

A real threat to the Anglo-American banking empire, the Tea Party’s tax revolt message could destabilize the financial engine that empowers the imperialist war machine and the socioeconomic totalitarianism that accompanies it.

Unfortunately, while Neocons are moving to co-opt and sabotage the Tea Party from within, the establishment statist Left are engaging in a frontal assault.  Both of these lackeys of the elite are desperate to defuse the populist challenge to the present paradigm.  Virtually working in a coordinated effort, Neocons are injecting militarist jingoism into this movement, comprised of fed up and frustrated everyday Americans happily unschooled in political correctness, giving the disingenuous Left fertile ground to attack the Tea Party as racist and fascist.[1]

If your only source of information is mainstream corporate news, the ideological roots of the Tea Party are completely obscured.  We passively watch TV and infer throngs of conservative white folks primarily complaining about “that Black guy in the White house”.  Started during the Bush years by Ron Paul pro-Constitution activists the original attempt to recapture the ideals of the founders of our republic is long lost from the picture.[2]

Helping to perpetuate the charade professional Republicrat henchmen, serving the banker-military complex, will do their best to cloak this timely populism and ideological mass appeal.  They will continue to depend on their respective Democrat and Republican congregations to swallow the lie that there is a substantial difference between each party.  Faithfully, they will plant campaign yard signs for Henchman A or Henchman B on their front lawns.  Tea Partiers, themselves, will allow neocon and status quo media celebrities, such as Palin and Beck, to speak for them.[3] 

Author, David Icke, succinctly warns, “anyone who seeks to prevent the free expression of thought by anyone else is an agent of control and they should know that before their self-delusion leads to the very fascist Orwellian state they claim to oppose.”[4]  Pseudo revolutionaries, on the left, will continue to harangue “tea baggers” in condescending and meaningless tirades.  Robot radicals will be willing stooges in parroting misrepresented views of any alternative outside of the corporatist mandated Left/Right paradigm. They will enthusiastically work for their own eventual destruction. 

Leftwing Racism

African-American Tea Partiers will continue to befuddle leftist ideologues. Anomalous to the standard Left/Right paradigm are Black conservatives.  The Leninist concept of Black Nationalism, as a tool to topple the white racist ruling class, is blunted upon the rock of individualism.   Freedom and the spirit of enterprise are attractions that cut across racial lines.

Nevertheless, Marxists will exhort the oppressed Blacks.  A current socialist propagandist writes, “.., the national liberation struggle of Black people in the U.S. must include the heightening of national consciousness, identity and self-respect. But these are not the same as nationalism, an ideology a world outlook, promoted by the bourgeoisie and petty bourgeoisie that advocates the primacy; exclusiveness and privilege of “their” nation.”.[5]

Prominent Tea Party figure, Rev. C.L. Bryant, a former president of NAACP’s Garland, Texas chapter, is one who doesn’t fall prey to the separatist hype.  He says the idea that the Tea Party is racist or is trying to instigate a racist climate is “simply a lie.” Bryant claims the NAACP wants to “create a climate where they can say that those on the right are in fact racist and those on the left are their saviors”…[6]

What is the Tea Party?

One activist writer accurately captures its populist nature and potential:  “Do any of us even know how to define a Liberal or a Conservative these days? After all, in 8 years of a “Conservative” president we saw preemptive interventionist wars and nation building on the backs of the taxpayer, runaway borrowing and spending, and massive growth in government.  Meanwhile, the “Liberal” savior Obama continues to expand the wars, torture captives without trials or evidence, and target all forms of free speech.  Where it matters most, both political parties cater to Wall Street over Main Street, while working to restrict our Constitutional rights.  Fierce populist revolutions have been fought over far less oppression than we see today (see 1776), and yet the generally angry public can’t seem to focus long enough to form a strong common consensus…  Indeed, the Ron Paul crowd and the Liberal crowd have much in common when it comes to very important issues such as Peace, Auditing the Fed, Individual Liberty, Economic Freedom and Justice, and the Human Rights defined in the U.S. Constitution.” .[7]

Pollster, Scott Rasmussen, describes the mindset:  “Americans don’t want to be governed from the left or the right,” Scott Rasmussen tells the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conference of 1,500 conservative and moderate legislators. “They want, like the Founding Fathers, to largely govern themselves with Washington in a supporting — but not dominant — role. The tea party movement is today’s updated expression of that sentiment… The major division in this country is no longer between parties but between political elites and the people,” Mr. Rasmussen says.”[8]

Rasmussen also observed that, although the GOP stands to benefit in the 2010 elections, 75 percent of Republicans believe that the party leadership is out of touch with them.

War, what is it good for?

Researcher-author, William Bramley conducted a seven year investigation into the causes of war.  He fully expected to find profit as the primary motivation, however, he concluded that war can also be used to encourage populations to think in ways they would not otherwise do, and to accept the formation of institutions they would normally reject.  The longer a nation involves itself in wars, he noted, the more entrenched those institutions and ways of thinking will become.[9]

The Tea Party, regardless of its current problems, conceptually embodies something new and revolutionary beyond entrenched ways of thinking.  It is anomalous to generations of accumulated unquestioning reverence for, and dependence on, an all powerful centralized federal government.  As its name implies, it hearkens back to an era and mental outlook unfettered by ‘endless war’, states of emergency, and presidential directives.

Riding the Tea Party wave and pandering to the rhetoric of “limited government”, the establishment GOP will, no doubt, recoup some electoral losses incurred in 2008.  No fundamental change will occur.  Only a people’s movement able to connect the dots between the financial elite’s wars of occupation abroad and the loss of freedom at home will be able to make revolutionary change.  

Only a people’s movement, ready to fully embrace the spirit of 1776, will be able to restore our republic.  A priority for peace and freedom advocates is to expose the false dichotomy offered by the Republicrat duopoly dictatorship and its singular agenda of serving the transnational financial elite.  Concurrently, the masses must be reminded of their inherent capacity for local self-reliance and self-determination.

R3VOLution and the Road Ahead

March 9, 2010 1 comment

The road ahead will be a challenge.

In 2007 the call went out.  Thanks to the Internet many were informed of a radically different presidential candidate aspiring to be elected in 2008.  It was a candidate who spoke directly to fundamental problems that mainstream media and politicians had long ago capitulated to, and in some cases, defended.

Ron Paul, a Republican, no less, offered hope to millions of Americans fed up with meaningless wars, big government disconnect, and shrinking personal wealth.  Beyond slogans of hope and change, the anti-neocon Ron Paul R3VOLution offered answers – restore the Constitution, require our leaders to obey it, prosperity and peace will follow.  Although the GOP establishment, with the help of corporate media, thwarted Dr. Paul’s campaign, the political landscape was changed forever.  A new political paradigm emerged in a big way.                   

Here in Boulder, Colorado, folks of many different stripes responded to that call.  Disgruntled Republicans found themselves shoulder to shoulder with antiwar and 911 Truth activists.  Enthusiastically, we formed a local group, leafleted at local events, and pounded the pavement in our own precincts to get Dr. Paul nominated.  Despite the victory of politics-as-usual, Republicrat, and banker yes man, Obama, we pressed on with Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty working to raise awareness for restoring our constitutional republic and building support for future freedom minded candidacies.                   

Yes, that’s right, here in Boulder.  Official sister city of Lhasa, Tibet, and plenty of Free Tibet bumper stickers on ski rack fitted Subarus to prove it, Boulder is a model community for U.N. Agenda 21 and sanctuary city par excellence.  In hyperdrive to eliminate individual and property rights using the sustainability scam and global warming hoax, Boulder is also a case study in how a select population can be convinced that it is hip, trendy, and progressive, to go along with forced incremental collectivization.  Helping in this dumbing down process are plenty of local reactionary individuals and organizations cloaked in banners of ‘peace and justice’.  Gatekeepers for Left/Right polarization, they are fond of demonizing Tea Partiers as “racists”, and groups, such as the Oath Keepers, as “right-wing terrorists”.   

Curators of the archaic socialist mindset, they cite greedy, polluting, corporations as the cause of all war and suffering.  Willful stooges serving the power elite agenda they call for more laws and more government to rein in the capitalists conveniently forgetting that we are well past the era of robber baron capitalism.  In this stage of financial capitalism banker owned corporations are melding with banker owned governments ensuring a completion of the fascist model of totalitarianism.     

Despite this antithetical sociopolitical setting, the Boulder Campaign for Liberty continues to grow along with other freedom groups throughout the country.  The message of classical liberalism (limited government, individual liberty) as opposed to the collectivist ideology of the modern liberalism of today is compelling and undeniable.  The phony Left is revealed to be as philosophically bankrupt as the phony Right.  While appearing as opposites, modern establishment Liberals are, in reality, the dialectical partners of Neoconservatives in their shared quest for 21st century fascism.         

Starting a freedom group anywhere is easy.  The hard part lies ahead.                      

The Road Ahead                   

Regardless of the turmoil and confusion caused by attacks from the phony Left and Right, the essence of a legitimate patriot, people’s movement remains intact.  The inappropriate appellations of “tea baggers” targeting grassroots tax protesters are now seen as the predictably hollow and nervous squeals of the intellectually frustrated.  The prime time television theatrics of Glenn Beck, and other phony conservative disinfo agents, are now exposed as a not so subtle Neocon co-optation attempt.                   

"TRUST ME."

Going forward, the freedom-liberty movement faces still more challenges.  The greatest challenge yet to come is that the movement still needs to clearly define itself and it’s goals independent from special interests.  Establishment GOP party hacks continue their attempt to co-opt the freedom awakening with a new version of Neocon Lite.  Riding the Ron Paul wave and exploiting anti-IRS, anti – Big Govt sentiment, they vilify Obama’s ‘socialism’.  At the same time, they extol the virtues of the fascist phony War on Terror along with its destruction of the Bill of Rights.  Let’s all work to restore the Republican Party to its original platform of limited government, they say, and, while we’re at it, bomb the hell outta Iran.  After only a year of Bush’s absence, the Neocons truly expect sane and sober folks to fall for this nonsense.                 

Wall Street parasites pose as born again libertarians and join with other useless talking heads on TV financial news shows.  Preaching the wonders of unfettered capitalism they promote a return to the good old days of limited government.  Noticeably, however, limited government and deregulation for you and me is often missing from the sermon.  Their mantra of; capitalism, capitalism, capitalism, by the way, better captures the linguistic flavor for justifying insider trading and monopoly practices.  It is so much more politically correct than the phrase,  free enterprise – a concept inferred from our Constitution, that speaks to the middle class, and reflects our culture of self-determination.                   

It is said, nature abhors a vacuum.  Nature is not picky and anything will do to immediately fill the void.  The same is true for politics.  Running as ‘Independents’ opportunists are scurrying to pander to an electorate fed up with both Democrats and Republicans.  Hitting all the right notes playing to the populist mood of the day, their charisma is sometimes stunning.  When asked the hard questions about 911 Truth, however, they suddenly go gaga-eyed and do a flip-flop routine rivaling that of contestants on So You Think You Can Dance.  Their obsession with winning, sacrificing true personal patriotism, is revealed.              

Learning From Our Adversaries               

Lenin leads the Bolsheviks out of the R.S.D.L.Party

In Marxist lore it is Lenin credited with the understanding that the most intense ideological struggle happens within the revolutionary party, itself.  It is not with the opposing political parties.  He was keenly aware that the Bolsheviks would not be successful unless there was a common consistent ideology enabling the party to act as a unified disciplined machine.  Amid the chaos of a collapsed Russian government, his insight proved to be valid.  Among the many parties vying for control, it was the Bolsheviks who were the best organized and seized state power because of it.  There were no compromises with other socialist factions.  In the years preceding the 1917 Revolution many Communist politicians lost their lives because they did not recant their beliefs.  The Bolsheviks maintained credibility, respect, and allegiance during crisis.  There were no flip-flops.  Say what you will.             

Government provocateurs and bona fide fringe kooks aside, the genuine freedom movement does not include anyone proposing revolutionary violence.  The infowar and ideological struggle, though, is shaping up to be just as intense.  In order to have credibility and to speak with authority, the Freedom movement must stick with Constitutional values without compromise.  It must not play favorites with the Left or Right.  Sarah Palin and Al Gore should be seen for what they are – two careerist politicians serving the same paymaster.  9/11 and all false flag terror must be acknowledged.  All elements of racism and religious bigotry must be expunged.  Wars of aggression can no longer be acceptable under any circumstance.  A consistent anti-New World Order ideology is sorely needed.          

In our high-tech age of instant gratification telling the truth without compromise and risking electoral defeat is a novel idea.  It will, however, prove to be the standard by which true patriots are separated from phony politicians.  A peaceful Second American Revolution will not happen overnight.  It will demand longterm credibility from ideological consistency.  It will demand speaking the truth.  No compromises.  No flip-flops.

No Tea Party for Ma Joad

February 9, 2010 2 comments

Actress, Jane Darwell, portraying ‘Ma Joad’, concludes the 1940 film, The Grapes of Wrath, with these words:        

“I ain’t never gonna be scared no more. I was, though. For a while it looked as though we was beat. Good and beat. Looked like we didn’t have nobody in the whole wide world but enemies. Like nobody was friendly no more. Made me feel kinda bad and scared too, like we was lost and nobody cared…. Rich fellas come up and they die, and their kids ain’t no good and they die out, but we keep on coming. We’re the people that live. They can’t wipe us out, they can’t lick us. We’ll go on forever, Pa, cos we’re the people.”       

Yep.  Don’t need to use a bunch of fancy words.  Don’t need to talk good.  You don’t even need to look good.  We, the people, who prefer honest work and yearn for a decent life, intuitively know lies and deceit when we see it.  We know what counts and what don’t.        

Powerful and controversial for its time, The Grapes of Wrath chronicled the plight of the ‘Joad’ family after losing their farm during the 1930’s Great Depression.  Based on John Steinbeck’s novel the film eerily includes scenes and dialog that could be lifted straight out of today’s news.  Indeed, Ma Joad’s affirmation could be the rallying cry for many oppressed by present-day Big Govt/corporate tyranny.       

This past week the first national Tea Party convention was held in Nashville, TN.  Attendees paid $500 a plate and listened to featured speaker, Neocon celebrity, Sarah Palin.  For those that remember, however, the Tea Party movement had a very different origin.  It was started a few years ago by everyday folks tired of corporate manipulated, government intrusion in their lives.  Sounding the alarm of the incremental fascism of Bush (and now, Obama) they called for a return to the Constitution and the freedoms promised in it.  

You Can’t Fool the People 

On the grassroots level, supporters understood the fraud of a two-party (duopoly) dictatorship.  They understood that Republicans and Democrats are really separate arms on the same beast.  The ‘beast’, of course, being the banking cartel that profits from government and social debt, i.e., big war/big welfare government spending.  Many were anti-war, outside-the-box, Ron Paul supporters.  Obviously, things have radically changed.       

Hey pardner, what's the fastest way outta Nashville?

It’s popularity spreading like wildfire, the Tea Party movement became a target for co-optation by the Republican Neocon establishment.  With plenty of propaganda help from CNN and Fox News the Tea Party was converted from a genuine people’s movement into another Republican Party tool to bash Democrats and their big spender, big welfare, policies.  With the Tea Party effectively subverted, the power elite thinks the phony theatrics of GOP – Democrat partisanship can comfortably continue.  Like putting lipstick on a pig, the GOP hopes the Tea Party motif will mask its own big spender, big war, policies.      

Exploiting the Tea Party sentiment sweeping the country the GOP has found a slew of candidates well versed in the lingo of liberty.  Party hacks including stock brokers, lawyers, and other social parasites, are wrapping themselves in “Don’t Tread on Me” flags and expect votes from the poor and disenfranchised middle class.  Forgotten, however, are Ron Paul’s constitutional principles of ending the phony War on Terror and the corrupt Federal Reserve.  His very own Campaign for Liberty is under assault from insider party hacks.  Here in Colorado the organization’s name was recently linked to the U.S. Senatorial candidacy of military interventionist, Ken Buck.  The big lie of 9/11 as justification for endless war persists.   

In the GOP lexicon “fiscal conservatism” now means taking money out of social services and putting it into the military and Homeland Security.  Either way, the banker agenda of socialized debt/private profit will be served.       

On both the Left and Right financial parasites clamor for votes and a chance to serve the banker elite.  Their attempts to manipulate the masses, divide and conquer, however, will only see limited success.  Disillusionment from losing the Tea Party as our voice will be shortlived.  We remember.  We know:  They can’t wipe us out, they can’t lick us. We’ll go on forever, cos we’re the people.

It Can’t Happen Here

September 12, 2009 1 comment

lewisConsidering recent events, It Can’t Happen Here, by Sinclair Lewis, is a fictional novel I suddenly recall from my high school days.  I chose it to read from among several suggested books during my senior year humanities class.  Let’s see.., without dating myself too much, that was about the 1970’s, or so. 

Published in 1935, “it is a cautionary tale about the rise of fascism in the United States. During the presidential election of 1936, Doremus Jessup, a newspaper editor, observes with dismay that many of the people he knows support the candidacy of a fascist, Berzelius Windrip. When Windrip wins the election, he forcibly gains control of Congress and the Supreme Court, and, with the aid of his personal paramilitary storm troopers, turns the United States into a totalitarian state. Jessup opposes him, is captured, and escapes to Canada.” — The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

My recollection is somewhat blurred by the years, but looking back, I find that the book was eerily prescient.  Written well before the rest of the world knew the details about Hitler and Mussolini, it fairly outlined the classic play book version of a fascist takeover.  Interestingly, although the story is meant as satire and fraught with bloated caricatures, the similarities to today are striking. 

The author chooses as a protagonist, Jessup, who is described as a mild mannered Vermont Republican – a stereotypical Yankee.  Jessup, among others, sees through the populist hype of Democrat, Windrip.  Nevertheless, he and the conservative opposition are powerless to counter the magic of Windrip’s demagoguery…

 All the while, Walt Trowbridge, possible Republican candidate for President, suffering from the deficiency of being honest and disinclined to promise that he could work miracles, was insisting that we live in the United States of America and not on a golden highway to Utopia.

Yes We Can!

Yes We Can!

Predictably, Windrip wins popular support and within a matter of months accomplishes what the succession of past and current, real life, CFR run, bankster contolled, tag team administrations are still in the process of doing.  He destroys our Constitution and institutes a police state.

Funny.., the things you remember.  Many books have influenced my thinking through the years and, like many, I have undergone a great deal of political evolution.  Concepts and theory interacting with personal experience have led to a perception of things quite different from that found in standard high school civics texts.  But curiously, many concepts put forward in Lewis’ story have stuck with me.  And one, in particular, perhaps unbeknownst to me, has been an a priori driving factor throughout my career in grassroots organizing.

Having to go underground to escape Windrip’s intelligence network, Doremus Jessup briefly finds himself as part of a loose coalition of freedom fighters composed of Young Republicans and The Young Communist League.  Outwardly far-fetched and certainly a source for situational comedy, this coalition, nevertheless, had its own logic.  Lewis understood that both groups, theoretically,were inherently antifascist, i.e., ideologically incapable of cooperating with any government/monopoly capitalist collusion.  Hence, ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’, and so forth. 

Of course, things have changed since Lewis’ time.  Today’s GOP Neocons hardly reflect the limited government, non interventionist, and proconstitution values of  historical ‘purist’ GOP ideology.  Ironically, the Ron Paul Campaign for Liberty, castigated as ‘radicals’ by the present day GOP leadership, is the proper heir to GOP founding principles.  As for communists and statist socialists, a maturation of political consciousness and scholarship have revealed them as the manufactured dialectical dance partner of monopoly capitalists in a false paradigm choreographed by a single financial power elite.  They are exposed as no real option to fascism.  They merely represent another form of tyranny and are alternate stand-in front men serving the same moneyed interests.

Regardless, the idea of alliances based on enlightened self interest remains sound.  Further, I truly believe in the power of reason over mindset.  Most people still have the capacity for intellectual honesty.  Only the most inveterate ideologues and committed operatives are immune against challenges to core beliefs.  It is within these alliances that fertile ground exists with the capability to sprout new ideologies.  They often serve as crucibles birthing new politics as theory and action collide.

Case in point: the 911 Truth Movement.  Comprised of Libertarians, Green Party socialists, and everything in between, Truthers have pressed to reopen a sincere investigation and to expose the government cover up of the events of that day.  Here is a group that has folks sitting in the same meeting that wouldn’t normally associate on a political level.  Libertarians don’t go to single payer health care rallies.  Socialists and progressives don’t attend Tea Parties.

911 Truth is, however, uniquely positioned to lead the way past the phony Left/Right paradigm and focus on The New World Order as the real enemy of freedom and democracy.  Truthers understand that neither Democrats or Republicans have a monopoly on engineering false flag events.  They understand that both Left and Right are capable of oppression and slavery.  They hold the key to unlocking a new paradigm.  The elite have imprisoned us in a matrix of false political reality.  911 Truth is the doorway out.
