For my eyes have see the gory
Of the coming of the horde,
It is trampling out in scrimmage
Where a wealth of crass are whored,
It hath loosed a f’d up frightening
Of a republic’s faithlessness reward,
Goose-steps keep keeping on…

Gory, gory hallelujah … Boo-wa-ha-ha!

Ok, so this one could have as easily been titled ‘stupidity hymn of the republic’ because the facts are, where the USA has devolved to is at least as stupid as it is obscene. As an American patriot in principle, that is one faithful to the constitutional rights, principles and ideals we should have strengthened rather than allow to be discarded by the Trumanite network (created by the National Security Act of 1947), I see it as our duty to call a spade a spade in the tradition of Thomas Paine, a man who did not mince his words:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime”

I have not (yet) come across a better quote to describe what is known as the ‘political correctness’ underlying the American body politic, where one must conceal the reality; for instance a closet homosexual, Senator Lindsey Graham, whose Evangelical base condemns homosexuality per se. This is a case of interest in light of a simple question: What is the greater abomination, Senator Graham’s sexual orientation in the eyes of his hard right constituency, or his record of murderous votes bought in support of an empire, amounting to payola by corporate multinationals? Or is the greater abomination Senator Graham’s concealment of his sexual orientation, going to the point of the Thomas Paine quote and Graham’s representing a base that condemns what he actually is, in his personal life, Jesus stating “You hypocrite!” notwithstanding. I can’t think of a better sobriquet for Lindsey Graham than “political fag” or “male prostitute” but today’s demand for ‘political correctness’ will have none of it. You have to be willing to lie, from the get go, to play ‘up’ in the American game. That Senator Graham’s orientation, and concealment, resembles the two-faced life of, example given, J. Edgar Hoover, any intelligent body politic should have a problem with NOT calling it out. That we don’t should point to what actually is frightening, the fact modern Americans match up rather well with what Thomas Paine had condemned; ‘the moral mischief of mental lying in society.’

If we define a generation as “all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively”, it wasn’t even a generation ago American conservatives were not the pervasive bigots we see today. They were largely both; honest and polite, wherein conversation gays were euphemistically ‘greek’ (without animosity) and lesbians described as ‘never married.’ In pre-Tea Party libertarian Montana, gay and lesbian folk were tolerated across the wide swath of Montana’s conservative community, with little overt hostility. It is worth noting in this pre-bigot (pre-Tea Party) life, libertarianism had been one of a very indigenous self-restraint, where seldom people pushed an agenda in the other’s face.

Jack Kerouac, Alan Ginsberg and William Burroughs are responsible for changing all of that, when what amounts to ‘gay evangelism’ or ‘in your face’ libertine lifestyle pushed the conservatives to an extreme, intolerant right position and the left had become infected with a ‘value’ of ‘tolerance’ where everyone, conservatives included, are expected to ‘tolerate’ what amount to dissolute behaviors in a more traditional lifestyle. This split saw immense amounts of money, one could say obscene amounts of money, pumped into either side of the divide, widening the split and hardening the opposing positions. ‘Liberty’ were never so abused before ‘social issues’ became the political prostitutes’ preferred agenda; where now the epithets of choice in the common parlance are faggot and bigot respectively. These terms are no longer constrained to application towards the truly deserving, and the real tolerance allowing for a discreet lifestyle of choice is a thing of the past.

In fact, if the American republic had gone on to secure its intended secular nature, there would only be civil unions (contract law) and ‘marriage’ would be the sole purview of the concerned individuals in relation to religious institutions entirely fenced out of matters of state, no matter were one straight or the alphabet of LBGTQ (RS_UVWXYZ.)

As this cultural war is exploited by the USA’s military-industrial complex, while American empire had expanded and is pointed to collapse like a 33-1/3 LP recording of Rome played at the speed of 78 RPM (millennials might have to research that metaphor), it’s small wonder the nation itself is become the junkie represented in Burroughs (the opioid epidemic), a collective perversion of American genius, where everyone is either a faggot or bigot, merely depending on which side of the divide the voices are funded from. Meanwhile, there is no peace and there is no actual ‘tolerance’, everyone is caught in a war zone, either the cultural war at home or the battlefields of empire abroad.

Considering this circumstance of ‘liberty run amok’ is not likely to resolve amicably, it is interesting to this author, when observing perfectly intelligent people (one should presume), these people seem either incapable or unwilling to examine the very nature of the reality underpinning their experience. For 2,500 years Plato has defined what we have come to perceive; but in the end ‘objectivity’ has produced no ‘objective’ ability to solve our problems, in fact the 21st century has only seen these problems compounded. Something is seriously wrong. And something is seriously wrong with the fact my own analysis drawing back the curtain, when exposing criminal talent, can be widely read (by this modest blog’s standards) and even admired, but this simple, damning equation cannot seem to get traction:

orangutongue |əˈraNG(g)əˌtəNG| (also orangutang, orang-utan)
noun
a vain, billionaire ape with reddish-orange hair in thinned pompadour style with small hands allergic to touch, native to a game of real estate set in Sumatra. The mature male develops a flashy, smiling grimace that is grotesque to behold. Typically attended by a superstitious consort with a European backwater small-village mentality.
[Bonkers pygmaeus, family Honkymentalitye.]
ORIGIN fifty cent.: see Pig Latin: ufusday ersonpay

I thought about titling this one the ‘head-scratching no-brainer’ but ‘just another geopolitical head louse’ is more apropos when it comes to Central Intelligence Agency practicing damage control. So, our orange haired President Twit, who would appear to have the political acumen of a Sumatran orangutan inexplicably inserted into American politics, appoints a man who could easily dedicate his time to cutting his boss’ throat with the ‘Russian collusion’ fantasy. If that’s what the CIA wants, it appears that’s what we’ll get.

Ivy League chicken-hawk William Barr spent the first four years of his professional life in the employ of the CIA at the intelligence directorate and CIA’s ‘Office of Legislative Counsel’ where he was the personal acquaintance of then CIA Director George H.W. Bush. Brought into the Bush Sr administration as a legal strategist during the Iran-Contra coverup, he is responsible for the pardons of several treasonous felons, no doubt necessary to avoid any of them squealing on their boss, George Herbert Walker Bush, and his then CIA director Robert Gates, whose criminal collusion in the Iran-Contra affair is traceable to that sordid business’ immediate predecessor and inspiration; the so-called ‘October Surprise of 1980.’ This was when the Ayatollahs were Bush and Gates’ business partners in turning Jimmy Carter out of office (the ayatollahs were paid millions to keep the American embassy hostages until after the 1980 elections, preventing a Carter boost in popularity.) That’s what morphed into a blackmail relationship with the ayatollahs that eventually became Iran-Contra, a CIA-MOSSAD clandestine joint venture arming the ayatollahs to the teeth when the CIA and MOSSAD were arming both sides of the Iraq-Iran war so they might better tear themselves to pieces.

It is also noteworthy William Barr had been Deputy Attorney General and Robert Mueller’s direct supervisor when Mueller had been overseeing the USA end of the Lockerbie investigation, infamous for the fact the CIA had planted the evidence DoJ ‘expert’ (fraud) Thomas Thurman had attested to as authentic in the frame-up of Libya for that mass murder. Don’t let Lady Liberty’s wholesome look fool you, the republic’s scalp is itching, and in this context it makes perfect (criminal) sense it was William Barr, when Attorney General under Bush Sr, ordered the reassignment of 300 FBI counter-intelligence agents to other duties rather than risk the DoJ’s own intelligence service stumbling across the rank criminality of his organization’s relationship to CIA.

Going to this immediate preceding, in what amounts to a CIA-FBI cycle of ‘lice make nits and nits make lice’, most certainly William Barr will not prosecute a CIA officer doubling as narcotics cartel serial killer, Enrique Prado, a man Robert Mueller let run free to go on killing for a decade following a proverbial ‘mountain of evidence’ provided by Mueller’s own FBI (as well, state authorities), evidence which had been subsequently quashed by leadership at the top.

Then, this louse only itches the republic’s scalp more. Barr was part and parcel of Robert Mueller’s sinking of the BCCI investigation (with its multiple CIA accounts for money laundering related to narcotics and arms trafficking) where according to a former Manhattan prosecutor, John Moscow, whose efforts had been sabotaged by then DoJ criminal division lawyer Robert Mueller: “Of course, the biggest guys got away”

Who are the ‘biggest guys’ slated for escape in today’s monkey business at the Department of Justice? Other than Robert Mueller, William Barr’s fellow CIA liaised bosom buddy, it’s likely not the DoJ dummies who jumped on the Steele Dossier like shit-eating dogs, they’ll possibly be ‘put down’ (made to fall on their swords.) The CIA’s vested interest in salvaging ‘the Russians did it’ players that matter will be to deter any investigation into the false intelligence laundering service provided by ‘CrowdStrike’ (DNC mail servers never forensically examined by the FBI a.k.a. the ‘Russian hack’ story that doesn’t hold up), and engineer damage control around ‘the Steele dossier’ while pulling CIA asset Nellie Ohr’s chestnuts out of the fire (Fusion GPS), all clumsy mischief initiated by the CIA’s John Brennan-Hillary axis.

Now, if this all sounds a bit schizophrenic, it’s probably because the CIA is cellular to the point of multiple personalities; and it’s necessary  to understand the agency isn’t monolithic. If Obama’s then CIA director Brennan is a Hillary aligned neoliberal puke, present director Gina Haspel is a neocon-Christian Zionist aligned vomit puddle whose torture resume reads like a lesbian Torquemada in heat; from Gitmo black site to Bangkok black site (to Diego Garcia’s ‘deep’ black site?), no doubt with an intense infatuation for Alfreda Bikowsky and water-board induced confession of (actually non-existent) black al-Qaida cells in Montana where blacks are practically impossible to find. In short, other than tongues stuck out at one another when passing in the halls at Langley, Virginia, the opposed political natures of ‘the company’ employees take a second seat to covering up the agency’s dirty laundry. This is about clearing agency aligned folk of any danger where the CIA’s rodent-like fingers, with prints all over world-wide crimes sprees, might be caught in incompetent (inadvertently self-manifest) geopolitical-USA-politics rat trap. These are stupid, f’d up people.

Now, compare the preceding to a snippet of the ‘official’ story:

When asked about the Special Counsel investigation headed up by his “best friend” Robert Mueller, Barr said “I don’t believe Mr. Mueller would be involved in a witch hunt,” and that “On my watch, Bob will be allowed to finish his work.”  

Barr also said that the Trump administration would not be allowed to “correct” the Mueller report before a public release, stating “That will not happen.” 

Last week Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) met with Barr, and said that the AG nominee has a “high opinion” of Mueller, and that Barr told him that he and Mueller worked together when Barr was Bush’s attorney general between 1991 and 1993 when Mueller oversaw the DOJ’s criminal division. Graham added that the two men were “best friends” who have known each other for 20 years, and that their wives have attended Bible study together. 

Mueller also attended the weddings of two of Barr’s daughters.

Graham listed a series of questions he put to Barr: “I asked Mr. Barr directly, ‘Do you think Mr. Mueller is on a witch hunt?’ He said no. ‘Do you think he would be fair to the president and the country as a whole?’ He said yes. ‘And do you see any reason for Mr. Mueller’s investigation to be stopped?’ He said no. ‘Do you see any reason for a termination based on cause?’ He said no. ‘Are you committed to making sure Mr. Mueller can finish his job?’ Yes.”

When William Barr had penned a memo stating Robert Mueller had overstepped his authority as Special Counsel in ‘the Russians did it’ false-flag intelligence agency propaganda ruse, Trump took the bait and appointed Barr for the position of Attorney General. But clearly, the ‘witch-hunt’ isn’t going to end. Now, the outstanding questions revolve around how this plays out. Barr will bring the investigation back into a Russophobia focus and away from straying into Trump’s mafia business ties no doubt attested to by Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, who would know where the skeletons are.

This points to possibility there will be a ‘deal made’ where the investigation drops Trump’s corrupt business past and Trump agrees to pardon parties on both sides of the caper (read Brennan); to secure the vote he needs to avoid conviction in the Senate, because from this vantage point it would appear impeachment is going forward. Then, Senator Graham’s Evangelical clique stabs the orange-haired orangutongue in the back and elevates the ‘Never Trump’ Republican guard clique’s choice to be President, that is Mike Pence. Trump has the dirt he needs to avoid resigning but he doesn’t know how to use it when up against an intelligence agency ‘playing for keeps.’ By this time it would be too late, because he’s no longer president from moment of conviction by the Senate and it is a game of ‘he-said-she-said’ with Trump no longer possessed of the authority to declassify the incriminating documents that should send Mueller and team to jail.

For those who are bilingually challenged, Pig Latin’s ‘ufusday ersonpay’ translates ‘dufus person’, a circumstantial but apropos sobriquet for Trump, who is playing out of his league. Yeah, they actually do come dumber than the ‘folk’ at Langley, where crass intrigue to incompetent implosion is the clandestine operational outcome as often as not.

Recalling A + B = C:

A: “The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato” -Alfred North Whitehead

+

B: ”The [Plato’s] doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -Bernard d’Espagnat

=

C: nouns or millennia destructive process ‘objectifying’ language, projecting individual identity onto pieces of one’s surroundings, or dis-integrating environment; a result of the isolated projection of self or (ego) individuation by Western humanity exclusive of integration to a sentient, aware surrounding, where all environment had been/should be, social.

Here follows are example of ‘Five Rules of Indigenous Understanding’ adapted to this circumstance:

1) I don’t know anything (no one can know what to expect)

Here is western thought’s first hurdle – in a culture that craves absolutes (‘truths’), a result of our world having been ‘objectified.’ Per d’Espagnat’s statement that reality, according to Quantum Mechanics, disallows Plato’s ‘objective’ interpretation, and European thought primarily stems from Plato’s idea of the nature of reality (human consciousness independent of individual objects), if d’Espangnat is correct, it follows the entire European foundation of perception is itself a misapprehension of reality, inclusive of so-called ‘natural law.’ In this case, a rule of ‘I don’t know anything’ is apropos. But this is quite scary to the Westerner because it accurately implies ‘no one can know what to expect.’ That’s likely why, example given, despite science’ best efforts, computer models often fail when applied to nature (for instance global warming), one of the many, extensive, one could say pervasive, failures throughout Western (or ‘Westernized’) cultures’ (Plato’s) presumption ‘to know.’

2) Never lie to yourself.

Here is the necessary follow-on rule. But it seems impossible to achieve already because if it were possible to accomplish and Western scientists were of a proclivity to be honest, they’d have (a majority) ’stopped the press!’ (re-framed the story) already, based on d’Espagnat’s observation, and the entire construct of European based (Western) mentality should have come under scrutiny as a misapprehension of reality in total. That (clearly) didn’t happen/isn’t happening. What in fact we DO see happening is, a sort of ‘if we pretend it isn’t there (overlook the greater implication) we don’t have to deal with it.’ This ‘scientific’ escapism (denial) is little different to what we see in a so-called religious experience or  ‘paradigm shift’ ‘away from negativity’ sans actual sight; where responsibility for environmental destruction is so simple as flipping your everyday light switch; when one traces the wiring back through the grid to the energy source and all of the destructive acts [to sentient ‘objects’] necessary to initiate the energy at its source. It’s not only a matter of simply too much to swallow for any culture shaped by Plato, where self-deceit is pervasive, it is a matter of selfishness arrived at in physical comfort when there is no sense of a deep gratitude that comes of the intense prayer related to making necessary survival fire in ancient way.

3) Practice invisibility.

This would be a consequent, necessary rule of practice for any person (or community) who dare not expose themselves to ‘the violence of projected ego’ (the Western mental construct, as ‘appreciated’ by numerous indigenous cultures.) However this practical ‘invisibility’ is also related to ‘the ability to listen and observe’ which are valued indigenous cultural phenomena in contrast to the loud, incessant, intra-species conversation of the Western social construct and lack of awareness nature is a wider, sentient environment surrounding it (the so-called objects.) This goes to the ancient (Plains Indian) rule of pipe-making (where pipes are used for communal bonding) which did not allow for ‘just anybody’ to make a pipe; An ignorant person would create an ignorant pipe, a dishonest person would create a dishonest pipe, a deceived person would create a deceived pipe, a dangerous person would create a dangerous pipe, a vindictive person would create a vindictive pipe; because sentient awareness transfers through touch. This is also why the Indigenous peoples would refrain from molesting nearly everything encountered (anti-archaeology) except that it were actually necessary. Quantum Mechanics should eventually sort this as well (also likely to be overlooked and ignored.)

4) No fear.

Fear is different to survival instinct but these two are often conflated in Western culture. In fact ‘fear’ as we know it, did not exist in the pre-Western world, this phenomenon was not endemic but expressly limited and it was the introduced ego concept (a greater, imperative separation) is largely responsible for the inroad of alcohol to native culture; the difference is stark. Common sense is the better description for survival instinct, fear attends uneasiness of spirit and one (Native observation) presumes this to be separation’s alien sense of ego understanding it is not real but an artificial construct built upon a lie (Plato’s objectivity as applied to self or ego-individuation.) This ego or pseudo-awareness fears death (senses it is not real) whereas survival instinct can be overcome without fear per necessity (self-sacrifice for a greater community good.)

5) Paradox is in everything (there can be a exception to any rule)

1) Sometimes one intuitively ‘knows’ and it works out correctly, 2) a seeming false perception can ultimately manifest as reality, 3) visibility has its place and time, for instance calling out a warning, 4) people absolutely should fear mistaken ideas (e.g. Plato) and 5) some laws are immutable.

*

Whether the individual holding ‘you’re one with your divine self’, or the collective ‘you’re one with mankind’, these are examples of Plato’s ‘objective’ exclusivity in the extreme. This is actually isolation from a larger reality per the observation of d’Espagnat. It is this foundation underlying the lie separating the ‘divine’ humankind from a ‘greater’ divine expressed throughout creation where humans are in actuality but one aspect. In fact, humans are no more ‘divine’ than the environment they prey upon. This false sense of ‘light’ (ego-individuation) actually is what promulgates a phenomenon of dark or evil. This is seen where ‘rationality’ is the progenitor of chaos. Without the one, you cannot know the other. This inextricably intertwined or larger, collective phenomenon of self-deceit allows the individuated ‘divine’ (ego) aspect to ‘flip a switch’ (so to speak) and not experience so much as a flicker of awareness and related sense of accountability as they contribute to destructive process by the unsustainable collective they are part and parcel of (illusion of any ‘new paradigm’ notwithstanding.) In short, if the larger environment is sentient/aware and we are but one aspect of that larger expression or consciousness (d’Espagnat’s observation), then ‘objectivity’ must be construed to initiate a cannibalism/cancer where one aspect of the organism (humanity) has gone out of sync. Until this meta-dilemma of ‘Plato is the cancer’ (originating with a light-dark paradigm pervasive in Indo-European thought) is faced, there can be no relevant or efficient problem solving. A case of ‘humanity no longer knows its place.’

Relevant to this preceding, Einstein nailed it: “Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them.” This necessitates solutions for the Western world will not be derived from any culture overtaken by the objectivity of Plato (that is any of the many cultures of the Plato influenced modern, neocolonial, post-colonial infected or ‘global’ world.)

This European mentality which has overtaken us should end in one of three ways, likely in this order of possibility; 1) we will see this culture blow itself to bits, together with the rest of humanity, 2) social-environmental related collapse will bring it all down, no matter individual role or intention (includes a greater sentient awareness brings it all down) or, 3) intelligent self-dismantlement. Our duty is to work for this third, most remote possibility. To accomplish this, the first priority, via radical decentralization, is to point as many people/communities as possible to disconnecting from the grid while respecting a greater sentient environment’s self-sustaining method and process of healing (authentic intelligence.) To disconnect via avenue of intelligent self-dismantlement will absolutely require recovering from the poison of the Western culture’s (Plato’s) thinking and that can only begin with ‘I don’t know anything.’

A + B = C
Pythagoras Can Kiss My Butt (or) Here’s the Real A + B = C

+

This likely had been going on for a very long time prior to Plato who merely organized what amounts to a (mistaken) idea and managed it into imperative. Subsequently adopted by Europe as its cultural driver, finally we arrive at what appears to be the end of Europe’s existence, about the time (now) Quantum Mechanics says this is all wrong.

Watching Nassim Taleb and Daniel Kahneman at…

…my impression is Taleb (whether he realizes it or not) is, in a nice way, saying (Western) language lies about the nature of reality, he gets that much right, and I see Kahneman in some sense struggling with the idea (I sense he is disturbed at the thought) people actually prefer it that way and they do, because it is comfortable. But, one could also observe hypothermia is comfortable, in late stage or final approach to a permanent state of sleep (that would be death.)

What I do not see (in the video or Western culture per se) is holistic approach to interpretation of reality in and of itself. Rather my impression is (Western) language, in its disintegrated state of nouns, is become the trap curtailing possibilities and Taleb simply provides sense of intelligent management within a spectrum of what amounts to cultural self-deceit, creating a sort of proposed ‘armored hernia’ in the failing Western structure one can retreat to; a retreat which must ultimately discover its’ own (the hernia’s) limitations. This is because chaos is part and parcel of the Western (Plato’s) construct. When rationality becomes extreme, this inflates chaos as result; both are result of segregation of the self from peer relationship to environment or the product of ego-individuation (Western or Indo-European perception of reality, i.e. Plato’s objectivity.)

When rationality, and resultant chaos, must symbiotically generate tension to point of cultural and consequent civilizational implosion, there should be nothing left in any case, and, ‘skin in the game’ notwithstanding, Taleb’s proposed management will simply be footnote to outcome of destruction. Severed from the gone-out-of-existence body (Western civilization), there is no ‘afterlife’ for what Taleb proposes. Accordingly, I would propose his solving this problem:

In any democracy, ethics, self restraint, tolerance and honesty will always take a second seat to narcissism, avarice, bigotry & persecution, if only because people who play by the rules in any democracy are at a disadvantage to those who easily subvert the rules to their own advantage (Ronald’s Maxim)

The alternatives? Judges? That didn’t work out for the Judaic tribes, top-down hierarchy was too attractive. Wise kings? For every wise king, there seems to have been two corrupt ones or arguably worse, greater numbers of incompetent kings as opposed to good ones, and is likely why that system didn’t sustain. Autocrats along the lines of the several caesars who replaced the Roman republic? That didn’t work out because personal (individual) ambition cannot know innate sense of restraint:

“The extension of the empire has meant the growth of private fortunes. This is nothing new, indeed it is in keeping with the most ancient history” -Gaius Asinius Gallus (from Tacitus, The Annals of Imperial Rome)

The problem here is, anyone aspiring to rule a hierarchy that is vertical is limited to role of predator in the food chain and that only works in a healthy state of nature where the predator is subject to immutable law keeping its own species in check; where wealth is measured in the health of one’s surroundings, more so than personal possession and accumulation of wealth or sustenance which must be recognized as transitory (day to day) and limited or the prey species vanish and the predator with it. Talib seems to sense fragmentary echo of this in his astute demand for decentralization but he has not solved the problem. A factually ‘healthy’ understanding likely had been last seen, in what has become today’s Western world, in ‘Old Europe’ or pre-Indo-European neolithic (Danubian) culture, ending perhaps 4,000 years ago, abruptly halted by Indo-European thought and associated individuated ego or drive to personal empire. Talib perseveres in this Indo-European trap.

The missing piece of the modern equation? Our experience is (or should be) part and parcel of a greater phenomenon than ego-individuation of humanity, where a process (ego-sustenance) blocks sight of one’s larger surroundings as sentient, aware, self-balancing and possessing a power of volition that could easily see us erased.

The left ones think I’m [on the] right, the right [wing] ones think I’m wrong -Leon Russell

To start, my message of what’s happening that’s important in its bearing on the new year, the USA animus towards Russia and all of its implications, we begin in a historical context with this screenshot naming the author of a patent lie:

Mueller_Lockerbie - 1

Insofar as 2018 stories, of the several geopolitical events of considerable importance, in my estimation it is the deep state’s Robert Mueller role-as-mole or charade as ‘special counsel’ should draw the necessary attention to underline the so-called ‘Trumanite’ network embedded in the USA’s security structures. Of the MANY exposures (in the public domain) of this man as a fraud devoted to what amounts to an anti-constitutional order that has stepped itself up and above the rule of law, there are three that stand out to degree to disqualify him as anything other than corrupt; 1) in his role as deputy attorney general during the Bush 41 administration, Robert Mueller headed up the USA end of the Lockerbie investigation that was later exposed by a Chief of Scots police as a frame-up of Libya due to false evidence and testimony provided by the USA, 2) it was Robert Mueller had been exposed by a United States Senate investigation (that was never acted on) showing the United States Department of Justice sandbagged the criminal case against Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) and subsequently 3) it was Robert Mueller’s FBI for a decade refused to arrest a serial killer, Enrique Prado, despite more than ample evidence (a proverbial ‘mountain’ of evidence) provided to the Department of Justice by both state and federal law enforcement.

The common thread in these events? It is the Central Intelligence Agency. The USA end of the Lockerbie investigation was tied to false physical evidence planted by the CIA and the FBI provided the ‘expert’ testimony of Thomas Thurman (exposed as a fraud) upholding the same under Robert Mueller’s watch, BCCI was all about the CIA’s Iran-Contra international arms and narcotics money laundering investigation Mueller worked to contain (damage control) and Enrique Prado is not only a serial killer responsible for multiple drug cartel related murders that Mueller’s FBI failed to act on, but also happens to double as a high ranking CIA official who moved on to Blackwater where the CIA’s own contract killings became outsourced (Prado remains free & has never been prosecuted.) Of the many instance of Robert Mueller’s dirty work for CIA, these three cases are remarkable for the fact they are reasonably indisputable. [1], [2], [3]

It follows, when Robert Mueller is assigned to support ‘the Russians did it’ forgone conclusion at the trial by Western media, it demands investigation of Mueller’s endeavors and it cannot come as a surprise there are numerous, major holes in ‘the Russians did it’ story replete with CIA fingerprints (Bruce & Nellie Ohr, Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike.) It follows, these are the 2018 ronaldthomaswest.com stories that bear on what will follow in the new year:

These preceding stories concern a social poison that could morph into WWIII when you think about in certain terms; The USA’s deep state/intelligence agencies framing Russia as a criminal with (excuse me) ‘trumped up’ charges is not like falsely accusing your local rival mobster. The difference is tremendous and what is frightening is, the small mentalities who believe they can produce a stool pigeon, e.g. Christopher Steele, to give false testimony and expect the result will be a conviction, are creating a very big problem for all of us, because you cannot simply lock Russia up … and the falsely convicted are not prone to be especially friendly towards their prosecutors. When the Russians see opportunity to rectify this injustice, because the perpetrators almost certainly will never admit their fraud, likely result will not be pretty. You and I dear reader, could pay for that. In a more radical scenario, with continuing pressure and tensions piled on, everyone could pay. Sans bullshit happy greetings, welcome to 2019.

Relevant to the CIA’s vested interest in ‘the Russian’s did it’ information operation pursued by Robert Mueller, here is my related, thumbnail metadata history of false-flag terrorism as pursued by the liberal democracies intelligence agencies…

Moving on, 2018 is remarkable for the fact I’d finally jelled my personal philosophy into print in the English language. This was exceptionally difficult because the pre-Western civilization that has shaped my views is not conducive to translation to Western thought and language per se. In fact I’m prepared to state almost all past anthropological endeavors in this regard are hopelessly flawed, especially those stemming from so-called ‘native studies’ programs (and their academic progeny) for the fact color of skin creates a pseudo or deceptive perception of validity. ‘Native studies’ is a politically correct euphemism for Western anthropology dressed up in red skins in a society which seems hopelessly trapped into lying to itself. Here is my attempted work-around:

My modest blog’s projected performance for 2018: 116 hits daily (on average for a bit under 3,500 per month.) This is up from 2017, but 2014 had been a stronger year, due to Ron Unz linking his assessment of the MH17 false-flag Malaysian airliner shoot-down over Novorossiya (the Donbass area of Ukraine) to my assessment of that same event.

Started in mid-2012, following Alternet discontinuing (and eventually deleting) my ‘soapbox’ blog, ronaldthomaswest.com began to get a bit of traction in 2013, with 2014 the blog’s strongest year, pulling in 45,000 hits. 2015 had about 40,000 (a lingering effect of Ron Unz linking to the MH17 piece), 2016 was at 26,000, 2017 bumped up to 36,500 views and 2018 is up to just over 42,000 reads. Over the lifespan of this blog, we are nearing 200,000 hits.

Alfreda Bikowsky and the Definition of Stupid, lampooning CIA renditions to torture with real statistics, is the most steadily read article over time (since it had been published in December 2014), and has consistently gained on the MH17 assessment and is this site’s most popular and enduring satire. As things stand, it is on track to become this sites all time most read piece in 2019.

The following ‘top ten’ are not all published in 2018 but were the most read for the year. The numbers are probably a bit higher than reflected in these stats as of 26 December; as there are approximately 3,000 reads for 2018 in the category ‘homepage/archives’ some of which probably are hits of articles in the following list. Amazingly, works in relation to my Native American experiences are the top two.

Finally, I continue to hold that sheer numbers are not necessarily the best marker for a blogs importance, who reads can be as important or more important. In regards to this, greetings to the spooks, some of you I admire and know, others I despise but nevertheless know you read here (and know who some of you are.)

Don Rumsfeld & Dick Cheney’s Dog

You all have heard of the first grade primer ‘Dick and Jane’? Well, as fate would have it, Dick did not grow up to love Jane, because Dick (like Don) matured into a homosexual in denial, or “RRR” (sounds like a Rottweiler growl), one of those closet morality, socially/sexually frustrated and consequently mean people known as a Religious Right Republican.

So, this has to be an adult repressed homosexual ‘dick’, or machismo porn variation, of the ‘Dick and Jane’ story. Consequently, the story of how Don Rumsfeld met his demise, because of Dick Cheney’s dog, is pretty screwed up.

It’s called: Don and ‘dick’

Rumsfeld was visiting ‘big dick’ Cheney at Cheney’s ‘spread’ in Wyoming, Cheney was wishing he could have shot George Bush in the face with his shotgun because the coward George flinched and did not pull the trigger on Iran…

While reminiscing missed opportunities at initiating Armageddon, wishing they could have shot more people in the face, especially more Arabs, and about their longing for certain fascists to be in their lives, past and present, secular and religious.. among other things, Rummy suddenly asked ‘big dick’ why his Rottweiler, “Machismo”, was always chained by his kennel.

Mean people have mean dogs and, Dick explained to Don that “Machismo” had an edge about him, Machismo simply could not be trusted around visitors. Dick went on to explain how he wished it were otherwise and how he wished Machismo could be trusted to obey him and only tear apart people that he did not like, he’d tried dog trainers but they cost him money, too much money, because Machismo took a chuck of flesh out of all of them, every dog trainer he had tried. His insurance premiums had gone sky high, all on account of Machismo.

Rumsfeld: “Why don’t you get a different dog?”

Cheney: “Because I love my Machismo.”

Then Don had an idea.

Rumsfeld: “Hey Dick, there is the Arapaho Indian Reservation right up the road, why don’t you get a Medicine Man to take the edge off your Machismo? I saw on the Discovery Channel the Indians can talk to animals, you know they are all devil worshippers, so maybe there is something to it.”

Dick’s eyes brightened considerably, an amazing thing, as though a light had turned on upstairs, but then his brow furrowed back to normal, as though nobody were home.

Cheney: “That’s the problem. They are all devil worshipers, you know, Indians are sorcerers like the Old Testament forbids be ‘found among us.’”

So Don and Dick discussed that and came up with a solution. If they were not at Dick’s ‘spread’ while the medicine man worked with Dick’s Machismo, the sorcerer would not be found ‘among them’ and it would all be ok in the end, because St Paul had said “All things work together for good” for Christians like Don and Dick. So they sent a Secret Service agent to find a medicine man with an explanation of how Dick would like the edge taken off of his Machismo, and then went quail hunting, so the Indian sorcerer would not be ‘found among them.’

The secret service agent found a medicine man, a Blackfoot married to an Arapaho and living in Wyoming, a typical dumb Indian, who with a look of stunned disbelief, kept asking the agent again and again “What!?” After the agent had identified himself four times and explained Dick Cheney wanted the edge taken off his Machismo eight times, a light filled this Blackfoot Indian’s eyes, this agent was serious, and the devil was right at home.

Indians know when the gods deliver the opportunity of  a lifetime, and this was opportunity at redemption. It had been awhile since the medicine men had been noticed, that is, the now days scarce authentic ones, and the agent had stumbled onto the real McCoy. First and foremost, this Indian believed in the Native law of reciprocity and well knew how it worked, something the Whitemen had not sorted out since Jesus had told them about it two millennia ago: “As you sow, so shall you reap.”

In this Indian’s world view, the opportunity was all about deliverance, and the attending attrition from any consequence, a sort of natural quantum mechanics shamanic death manifest by friendly fire, simply would have to be tolerated, because the medicine men are all about manifesting truth, and this native cultural idea taken together with the dogs name, set out the path to healing Dick’s Machismo: The dog would have to be taught how to enjoy narcissistic sex, instead of biting people.

Initially, the medicine man realized he would have to endure Machismo’s instinct to hump his leg, that was disturbing, but to reach the goal beyond… The Indian told the agent, well, ok, he would do it for ‘dick.’ The agent missed the straight faced Indian humor… and utterly failed his agency’s chartered mandate.

Indians are observational people, primarily, and know the purpose of dog butt sniffing rituals, sort of like when a Blackfoot and Cree spot each other from across a boulevard in downtown Calgary, the hair goes up on both backs and both Indians are thinking to the other “You can sniff my butt” in a historical context, and it is not a friendly thought. The actual butt sniffing between them is purely psychic, preceding any challenge and fight, and the medicine man doctoring Dick’s Machismo would need to circumvent this phenomena to achieve his aims. So sorcery came into play. He collected urine from a bitch in heat, rubbed a little of it on his knee, and bringing more along in a vial, he traveled to heal Dick’s Machismo.

The dog was very happy to see him, no hostility or butt sniffing ritual encountered at all, the Indian told the agent he had to work with the dog alone, brought out a plastic baby rattle wrapped in leather with a few strings with beads, to look convincing, and Dick’s fundamentalist christian body guard was more than happy to leave. Then this Indian began to work with Dick’s Machismo… “Now Machismo, my leg is a good beginning, but we have to show you something, you don’t need my leg or me at all, you can do this all for yourself- just follow her scent to where it feels so right….”

In Blackfoot language we have a word, I don’t know how to spell it in the Whiteman’s language, but it sounds something like oww-woe-tops and it means you are crazy and “everyone knows the Whiteman is crazy” is a Blackfoot proverb proven again and again, example given, Dick Cheney hiring an Indian that hates him, as every Indian should, to tame his Machismo. There is another Blackfoot word I dare not try to pronounce here, but it means “Dog Face.” It is about as bad as Blackfeet language profanity gets, and it is not as tame as it might seem, initially. The term refers to a certain facial expression…

Don and Dick were headed back to Dicks ‘spread’, the agent had called and told them the medicine man had pronounced Dick’s Machismo healed and was leaving, and as fate would have it, the medicine man, and Don and Dick, passed each other on the dirt and gravel country road, the Indian pushing his 1968 Chevy pickup named the “Red Jet” as hard as he could, the worn out 327 V-8 boiling blue smoke into the dust storm he was whipping up behind him, windows down, braids flying, wild eyed panic combined with a maniacal mirth at his crime, co-mingled with prayers to all the gods that he WOULD escape… thinking when he saw Don and Dick “you can sniff my butt” while trying to put on as many miles as he could, as fast as he could, to escape Dick’s ‘spread.’ Don said “God Damn”, Dick in the same moment saying “he must have brought along his whiskey”…

Dick and Don, walking to the kennel, turned a corner bringing Machismo into view in that very moment Machismo was swallowing it, gulping himself down with a certain facial expression… Don had a sudden epiphany, and he exclaimed “Machismo sucks!”, and Dick’s perpetual grimace of hate torqued down to the point it actually broke his primitive semblance of a mind, he pulled his permitted concealed weapon…

The camera pans away to the beautiful red rock cliffs of Wyoming, there was a first shot echoed together with Machismo’s dying yelp, Don shouted “NO!” and the second shot was heard… a pause.. the third shot sounded and America never heard Dick Cheney say “Terror” again.

In the here-after, for all of eternity, Don repeated “Look Dick, look. See Machismo suck!” And for all of eternity Dick shot Machismo and Don, again and again and could not kill them or himself (because they were already dead.)

The Secret Service agent kept his mouth shut about his role in the cause behind the Rumsfeld/Cheney murder/suicide, and no one came after the medicine man who laughed for years, again and again like a child, every time he recalled:

“you can sniff my butt”

HARVEST

USA Really, a Russian website, had been a brilliant idea, actually, with a mission statement to open up to American writers reporting on what the USA corporate media will not. However it became today, 20 December 2018, a casualty of Robert Mueller’s ‘the Russians did it’ political circus born out of John Brennan’s CIA on behalf of the neoliberal Hillary clique. Henceforth, any American contributors to USA Really will have put themselves within reach of prosecution and those writers perceived as a threat will be at risk.

I had long held out the Russians only need to stick to the unvarnished facts of the USA’s political (and other) corruption, without any unnecessary spin, to win the propaganda wars. This is not a matter of I’ve aligned myself with Russia, it’s a matter of observing the American press has become a criminal arm of Western multinational corporate greed and related world domination. Worthless, dated habits influencing policies based in lies propping up a geopolitical fantasy reality are the soup du jour spoon-fed to Americans; where mainstream reporting allows little room for the underlying actualities. And certainly there is no room for truly independent journalists. Everyone, whether Americans or Russians, deserve better.

I should go on to say American alternative media is little better. Because the USA is multi-fractured society, there is little place for anyone who resists alignment with the diverse ideological media platforms’ sponsors. Perhaps the closest is Unz Review but it hosts too many butt-hurt idiots and polarizing hate-mongers to really attract a core of readers who’d like the undiluted, unvarnished facts in common sense terms.

USA Really appears to have been pointed in this new direction of offering American ‘citizen reporters’ opportunity but is in the learning curve. Their mission statement is good but could use improvement. Yes, I would also welcome diverse writers but with a caveat; keep the ideology and related jargon out of the reporting and restricted to the authors biographies (require writers sticking to the facts in the common dialect.) Meanwhile, one could read human interest stories and some geopolitical work, the latter particularly of varying quality, some excellent writers, and some other, tired writers and subjects, too often rehashed in exhausted, ideological jargon. Understanding the American psyche at the meta level and related quality control in the submissions is not yet accomplished at USA Really. But it is a new experiment in Russian journalism, sponsoring exclusively American writers covering the USA solely, and the potential for a resounding success was there. I expect this had been the actual reason for ‘sanctioning’ USA Really and its editor in chief. It’s evil but the reality is, it’s not a fight I’m ready to take on; Robert Mueller’s ugliness representing the Trumanite anti-constitutional order, stemming from the National Security Act of 1947, has won this round with below the belt punches:

Dear USA Really

It is with regret I am informed that, today (having read the story at your site), The United States of America has placed your organization on its targeted by sanctions list. I believe this to be unwise, to contravene the USA’s own founding principles of law, referring to First Amendment in our Bill of Rights particularly, and an indication of weakness and fear on the part of those who would consider themselves to be leaders of my nation.

However I might fully grasp and understand I have a lawful right to associate with, and exercise free speech through, the media platform USA Really, I also understand the current political climate, and associated actors, would not respect this in what amounts to an undeclared state of war with Russia. As a pensioner, I simply am not positioned with the necessary resources to guarantee my rights in any possible actions the USA might see in its (mistaken) interests to harass myself with; whether administrative procedure or possible criminal charges if I were to make further contributions. Therefore please be informed I can no longer prepare work in docx format from my blog or otherwise initiate submitting stories for your readers. As your staff may be aware, my personal position is particularly delicate/precarious in relation to certain criminal elements associated with USA governance.

My work submitted to your publication prior to today should be protected by the USA ‘ex post facto’ prohibition. But, speaking to my entry for the “Global Democracy” award (John Reed category), I request any prize money won be donated to a Russian charity, and as a war veteran, I would suggest to the orphans of Russian casualties in Syria. I can no longer suggest a USA charity on account of the legal and/or public relations problems this might bring to otherwise deserving people in today’s irrational USA political climate.

With profound wishes for a better future relations with Russia, my sincerest greetings

Ron West
