A Constitutional Law essay for common people; IQ required to read and understand this essay: Average around 100.

On 29 November 2017, the number was fifty two thousand, nine hundred twenty seven. The message accompanying the number was “we’ll break through 53,000 in a few days, I assure you.” We will come back to this.

Now, about that 1st paragraph in the USA’s so-called “Bill of Rights”

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

Every one of these preceding stipulations is routinely trashed; by people who put on a cloak called color of law, when they swear an oath to uphold the constitution and promptly set out to violate that very oath. It would require a book the size of the greater Los Angeles telephone directory to get through a comprehensive documentation of just how widespread and pervasive this has become, across the institutions of the USA. So, we’ll condense the lesson.

Let’s take the last 1st Amendment clause, this one is key to understanding the crux of the problem:

Congress shall make no law … abridging … the right of the people … to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

Well, they did, with the complicity of the judicial and executive branches, when the United States assumed and asserted a doctrine of Sovereign Immunity from suit. In the simplest words, in the USA supposedly The People are the sovereign, not your congressman, senator, or the president, and the courts should uphold that. But instead of meaning something concrete, like a right  to force compliance with the constitution via lawsuit, Sovereign Immunity has seen this right reduced to a right to whine, per wikipedia:

The Petition Clause protects the right to petition all branches and agencies of government for action

Excuse me, but what’s been left out of Wikipedia’s explanation is “redress” is a synonym for justice. Whining to your congressman the courts are denying fundamental rights isn’t going to cut it when it comes to complying with the  constitution, because they’re all in bed together undercutting the foundational law and here’s a premium example … the Senate confirms the president’s appointment of John Roberts to become Chief Justice. The Chief Justice appoints the judges of the secret FISA court, and this following 4th Amendment language is flushed down the public commode:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized

And this 5th Amendment language:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation

And this 6th Amendment language:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence

All of these rights have been flushed by Congress, with passing the FISA laws, like a junkie with the police at his door, disposing of his heroin, and not a single justice of the Supreme Court of the United States stands up and says Hey! What about our oath to uphold the Constitution?

That’s precisely what ‘color of law‘ is, it is the government, in this case the courts, saying the constitution doesn’t mean what it says because Congress says it means something else, and we’re the ones [the courts] who will [wrongly] uphold this law. In other words, the foundational law (constitution) says justice is white, but we can [wrongfully] color it red. Clearly there is a problem with the president appointing, and the senate approving, rank political animals to the federal courts, whose oath to uphold the constitution is patently meaningless:

Because of FISA provisions brought on by the Patriot Act, the … administration can … invoke “sovereign immunity” which would … allow it to nullify legal challenges brought on by Americans who were spied on. US district judge Jeffrey White specifically notes in the opinion that the government hasn’t waived its right to do so [invoke sovereign immunity] with FISA, stating that “the potential risk to national security may still be too great to pursue confirmation of the existence or facts relating to the scope of the alleged governmental program.” The US government normally has this kind of legal protection unless it is either waived or special laws apply.

‘Waived or special laws apply’ appears to mean if you have a lot of money and hire precisely the right law dog, one who is trained to jump through the very specific hoops of the Federal Fictitious Claims Tort Act, ok, then you might get lucky and slip past sovereign immunity (but probably never in a FISA case.)

Now, to the 11th Amendment and the associated, suspect, idea the USA has rightfully reasserted the doctrine of Sovereign Immunity:

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State

What had happened here, is a contractor from South Carolina was owed a war debt by the State of Georgia, which didn’t want to pay up. The Supreme Court had ruled there was no such thing as a state sovereign immunity, in the case of Chisholm v Georgia

Nearly all of the states freaked out at the prospect of having to pay up on their war debts and the 11th Amendment was passed, posthaste. And just like that, two immediate and a third, remarkable things happened;

1) Although the 11th Amendment is specific and narrow, and doesn’t so much as mention Sovereign Immunity, the legendary English Common Law expert William Blackstone’s Sovereign Immunity doctrine is reinstated in the former colonies: “The King moreover is not only incapable of doing wrong, but even of thinking wrong; he can never mean to do an improper thing: in him is no folly or weakness.” Only now, suddenly it is no longer the ‘King’ can act with impunity, but the institutions of government in the newly formed United States.

2) With the passing of the 11th Amendment by the several states legislators, all of the lawsuits pending in federal court per state war debts had been erased, and half the language of Article One, Section Nine, of the Constitution had been tossed into the ash bin: “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” Thomas Jefferson indicated this language had been meant to cover both criminal and civil circumstance of law, and the constitutional language supports this assertion by Jefferson; ‘Bill of Attainder’ should refer to criminal, and ‘ex post facto’ should refer to civil liabilities. In other words, the USA should not have been allowed to make law, criminalizing or creating liability, or excusing crime and liability, after the fact, to get the outcome it wants. The 11th Amendment neither mentions nor lifts this other constitutional provision. But now, civil ex post facto law happens frequently, such as Congress ‘forgiving’ the telecom companies illegally spying on Americans, erasing liability and robbing citizens of their day in court.

3) The third thing to happen was, as late as 1991, in Blatchford v. Native Village of Noatak, the Supreme Court wrote:

“we have understood the Eleventh Amendment to stand not so much for what it says, but for the presupposition of our constitutional structure which it confirms: that the States entered the federal feudal system with their sovereignty intact, that the judicial authority in Article III is limited by this sovereignty, and that a State will therefore not be subject to suit in federal court unless it has consented to suit, either expressly or in the “plan of the convention” [my correction of SCOTUS language in bold]

And there you have it, from the early days of the Supreme Court saying Sovereign Immunity is a non existent thing in immediate post colonial USA law, to the several states’ legislatures passing the 11th Amendment which doesn’t so much as mention Sovereign Immunity, to escape war debt, to the modern Supreme Court stating the language of our constitution’s 11th Amendment doesn’t mean what it actually says, but instead means what they want it to say, essentially stating ‘we’ll extend ‘the King’s prerogative‘ as far as we please, and we’ll use the 11th Amendment to absurdly assert what amounts to a claim the King’s Sovereign Immunity was never a point of the American Revolution.’

Here’s the simple math: From King George III was our ‘sovereign’ entitled to immunity (amounting to impunity), to ‘the people’ are sovereign, to politicians claiming they hold the people’s sovereignty (amounting to impunity), to judges appointed by those very politicians upholding this political theft of our freedoms, to the oath to uphold our constitution becoming patently meaningless, even especially when before the courts.

Recalling:

On 29 November 2017, the number was fifty two thousand, nine hundred twenty seven. The message accompanying the number was “we’ll break through 53,000 in a few days, I assure you.”

Relevant to the preceding, there are two mentions of religion in the USA’s constitution:

Article Six, Section 3 states “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States”

And the 1st Amendment’s ‘no establishment’ clause enumerates “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”

Over the past 12 years or so, complaints these clauses have been violated, on average, are reported 12 times everyday; concerning a single United States institution. That institution is the Department of Defense.

As of today’s composition, 53,000 or so complaints of violations by our military leaders of  their oath to uphold the constitution.

From Saint Augustine’s ‘Just War’ theology taught to nuclear launch officers, to Bible verses engraved on military issue sniper scopes, to persistent, repeated, mandatory prayer attendance, the United States Department of Defense has both; established a religion, that is fundamentalist Christianity, and made a religious test of compliance throughout command structures. 53,000 complaints in 12 years, over 90% from non-fundamentalist Christian members of the military, have established there IS a fundamentalist Christian religious requirement in the American military.

53,000 complaints, 12 years of forcing the military into administrative procedures to correct having ‘the gospel of Jesus Christ’ [fundamentalist version] shoved down the rank and file throats, all brought to the attention of the command structures in the United States military, there is no courts martial, no administrative punishments and the Pentagon takes no action. This is a fundamentalist Christian culture of anti-constitutional impunity.

Now, where this gets really interesting is, we have generals who were/are on duty, at the highest levels of the American military structures, when this should have been cleaned up, it was not cleaned up, and is not being cleaned up, surrounding Trump. One of them, General Mattis, is the boss of the Department of Defense. Another, Lieutenant General McMaster, is Trump’s National Security Advisor. The ‘retired’ General Kelly is Trump’s Chief of Staff [Trump’s baby sitter, the generals appear to own Trump] and it’s General Kelly is behind the latest administration change: the proposed pushing Rex Tillerson out as Secretary of State and bringing the rabid Christian fundamentalist, Mike Pompeo, from CIA to replace Tillerson. Pompeo’s replacement to be, at CIA? A military crusader turned politician, Tom Cotton, his trajectory being from the Arkansas family farm, to Harvard Law, to deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, to one term congressman, to freshman senator, to CIA. His only qualifications for the job appear to be an Iran animus and militant Christian fundamentalism.

Does anyone see where this is all pointed?

“we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ is our savior is truly the only solution for our world” -Mike Pompeo

One more thing. Trump has handed off his Commander-in-Chief responsibilities to General Mattis. With the General’s known Iran animus and pushing war game after war game in North Korea’s face, is this the guy will end it all?

“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all” -General Mattis

Number one, that’s not a language of diplomacy. It’s a pretense, very thinly concealing ‘it’s my way or I’ll blow you away’ and that’s not how you do business with the Ayatollahs or Kim Jong Un, not to mention China or Russia. But maybe that’s besides the point. The guy that refuses to clean up the crusading in the American military probably could care less if the rest of us all die. After-all, what’s actually important to Mattis is, that he is a good general for Jesus, at the battle of Armageddon, upholding our constitution be damned:

“You’re telling me 28 to 34 percent of our military want 7 billion people to die” [believe in literal Armageddon] … “The simple answer is affirmative”

5 December 20017 update: portion of a mail sent to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation on 4 December, typical of multiple communications sent everyday:

I had finished reading your book, “With God on Our Side” on the airplane about 2 hours before we touched down at Ft Campbell on our redeployment from an extended tour in Iraq. It was dark, cold, and rainy when we walked down the jet’s stairs to shake hands with a 1- or 2- star general. We then dropped our gear, and got into a mandatory formation to head into the hangar where all the families were. Still in formation, we were “treated” to a completely mandatory Christian talk (? sermon) by the Division Chaplain. All this just a few hours after reading in your book how this shouldn’t be happening in our military. I was pretty upset about it, but was stuck in formation and couldn’t go anywhere.

I started supporting MRFF shortly after that.

Thanks again for what you and MRFF do. No other organization can or will do what MRFF does to fight this type of bigotry in the military ranks. It’s uncomfortable to put up with (at best) and difficult or impossible to fight it from within the chain of command

A former Special Forces Sergeant of Operations and Intelligence, Ronald Thomas West is a retired paralegal/investigator (living in exile) whose work focus had been anti-corruption and human rights. Ronald is published in International Law as a layman (The Mueller-Wilson Report, co-authored with Dr Mark D Cole) and has been adjunct professor of American Constitutional Law at Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany (for English credit, summer semester 2008.) Ronald’s formal educational background is primarily social psychology. His therapeutic device is satire –

The fantasy of halting climate change hinges on overlooking one, great, salient fact:

When the top tier of leadership at institutions such as the Pentagon & Congress, not only Chevron and the Council on Foreign Relations, et cetera, belong to a Dominion Theology cult and believe in literal Armageddon and that a miracle paradise will ‘appear’ (reserved only to themselves), there ain’t shit going to actually happen to stop climate change folks…

Past climate change conferences, such as the Rio Earth Summit and Copenhagen Summit, have seen a single phenomena in reality; lip service to halting carbon warming at 2 degrees Celsius while actually moving towards increasing carbon warming to 6 degrees Celsius, where human life as we know it, cannot be sustained.

What do a preponderance of the most powerful people in the western democracies, those actually making policy, believe?

Dispensational premillennialists hold that the second coming of Christ, and subsequent establishment of the millennial kingdom, is to be preceded by a seven-year-long period known as the “Tribulation,” the earthly activity of the Antichrist as well as the outpouring of God’s wrath on mankind”

So what sort of people prefer God’s wrath on humanity to reducing carbon because an “outpouring of God’s wrath on mankind” is a good thing (while making money hand over fist), to clean up the planet’s morally degenerate populations (anyone who isn’t a ‘Dominion Theology‘ adherent belonging to the Doug Coe cult) with acts of God? One only need look at The Family Research Council’s Pentagon poster-child for our rapidly eroding geopolitical ‘climate’, former special operations commando General Jerry Boykin:

“He has described himself as a warrior in the kingdom of God and invited others to join with him in fighting for the United States through repentance, prayer and the exercise of faith in God.

“He has praised the leadership of President Bush … ‘George Bush was not elected by a majority of the voters in the United States,’ Boykin told an Oregon congregation. ‘He was appointed by God.'”

After most of mankind is dead, generals similar to Boykin at the Pentagon in DC (and at NATO in Brussels), together with corporate personalities like General James Jones of Chevron, a former NATO Supreme Commander, and too many politicians, judges, et cetera to count, believe they will live under the rule of a returned Jesus in a world miraculously repaired and populated with only ‘believers’ like themselves…

Got that?

Interested to see our related Christian ‘corporate security’ at work?

Constellis Holdings’ Board of Directors includes: Red McCombs (Chairman), former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, former White House Chief Counsel Jack Quinn, Admiral Bobby Inman (Ret.), Russ Robinson, Jason DeYonker, Dean Bosacki and Triple Canopy co-founder Tom Katis … “This combination will provide our customers with the best possible service at the most competitive price. We share a commitment to flawless delivery of mission critical services. We share a bond with our employees, who are mostly decorated veterans who continue to serve their country in the private sector. We share a willingness to do the toughest jobs in support of the efforts to make our world a better place.” The combined ownership group will employ more than 6,000 of the industry’s most experienced and best-trained employees and will be led by CEO Craig Nixon”

In case you don’t grasp the significance of former Bush Attorney General John Ashcroft (Academi nee Blackwater ‘ethics adviser’) in the above list of Dominion Theology personalities, his ‘Assemblies of God’ church has traveling teachers instructing ‘chosen’ in advanced theology, including teaching “Muslims are the Children of Satan” (a course Sarah Palin had been enrolled in, prior to her dumping the Assemblies of God for even more extreme Christian Dominion organizations.)

Ready to welcome ‘Mercenaries for Jesus‘ to your neighborhood? People had better repair the social climate first, the authentic step to halting climate change and return to a suitable living environment-

 

So, the USA had ‘liberated’ Libya, and the result? Growing Islamist control over a Libyan state in process of tearing itself apart, with al-Qaida aligned militia strengthened across North Africa. Would you think this might have imparted a lesson?

In the case of the western democracies follow-on in Syria, resulting in the rise of the IS or ‘The Caliphate’, a sensible 1st step would be for the western democracies to establish law revoking the citizenship of any ‘tourist warriors’ who serve in the ranks of the jihadis. Thinking about joining? Make it clear you will never be welcome back. Now, that said, with nearly 1,000 military bases around the world, there is a question every American should ask themselves; ‘Why is an American’s life worth more than a Libyan, an Iraqi, or a Syrian?’ Or even better, ask themselves why is it Americans are so widely hated? It’s not some coincidence:

This points to the ‘humanitarian’ aspect, or one could better say ‘humanitarian violence’, as Eyal Weizman had called it, noting Obama’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, never encountered a proposed ‘humanitarian intervention’ she did not approve. Consequently, it is quite fair to say ‘democracy’ has killed more Libyans, Iraqis and Syrians, by far, than Qaddafi, Saddam and Assad, left on their own, ever would have.

What the Russians had recognized in the positive for a very long time and the western democracies are discovering in the negative is, where there is no national tradition or cohesiveness in tribal groups organized by clan, particularly in state of diverse beliefs (Sunni, Shia, Marionite, Orthodox and more), and artificial or colonial borders on top of that, there is no stability and security outside the secular strongmen who’d held together what amounts to artificial nations.

And finally, what the USA appears to suffer is, a sort of self-feeding insanity similar to the mentally ill parent who insists a child is ill to a point the child (in this case, the American people) believes he or she actually is ill, to draw attention to the parents importance as a care-giver. This, I believe, best describes the USA’s leadership and obsession with ‘terror.’

IS isn’t nearly the problem, it would appear, as is the rank incompetence, one could as easily state questionable sanity, of the western democracies structures tasked with quelling a problem they only seem capable of making worse. Comparing the western democracies strategy and actions to a cartoon reality, resulting in the rise of the Islamic State in Syria/Iraq, is not really difficult:

The K.I.S.S. Principle

Recipe for creating inextinguishable, persistently metastasizing & apocalyptic disaster, known as ‘bringing democracy’ to the Arab world:

General Petraeus training and arming al-Sadr’s Shia death squads and then training and arming Sunni ‘awakening councils’ in Iraq, fomenting civil war.

Then, stop paying & leave noted Sunni ‘awakening councils’ unemployed on exit.

Arrange Sunni insurrection in neighboring Syria, where recently trained & presently unemployed Iraqis can look for a job.

Set up financing and arms to opposition in Syria via Saudi Arabia, courtesy of a subsequently Petraeus led CIA (financing by default to the Saudi favored Salafist fundamentalist groups, inclusive of al-Qaida aligned militia.)

Base your operations out of NATO’s Turkey & the western democracies’ lap-dog Jordan.

Have your ally in Qatar broadcast a call to jihad in Syria, to millions of Sunni Muslims across the world (why, thank you al-Jazeera!)

Have the CIA, in concert with MI6, DGSE & MOSSAD, contract former special operations forces to assist the opposition in Syria.

Plan for fundamentalists who source their training to initial American efforts in Iraq and recently boosted by the new endeavors of western intelligence agencies, to become the most powerful factions in Syria.

Replace psycho-killer Petraeus at CIA with psycho-killer John Brennan.

Distract people from what’s happening with the world class CIA screw-up in Syria with new caper engineered by same CIA, in Ukraine.

As Islamic State asserts control over large areas of Syria, see thousands of battle hardened fundamentalists pour out of Syria across the border back into Iraq, rout the Iraqi army and capture countless tons of American supplied weapons.

Freak out at discovery your generals anti-Islamic efforts in Iraq and Syria won’t change who will be in control if/when CIA led effort to overthrow the Assad regime is successful, Salifist fundamentalists, in this case so extreme as to be disowned by al-Qaida.

When Ukraine distraction has failed, blame Russia for everything.

Fail to realize the eventual assessment of the Christian fundamentalists running the Pentagon will be, the only sensible option is to nuke the Islamic fundamentalists, as well as Russians, Jews, Blacks, cartoonists, author of this blog, women, gays, anyone who doesn’t believe in literal Armageddon, children who don’t behave, people who sue the church (especially alter-boys that talk)

Ron’s Conspiracy Theory

It would appear quite possible that groups of people create collective realities seeming unconsciously, and cause via their collective belief, events to take on what would appear to be an ‘unconscious’ but in reality is a ‘super-conscious’ intelligence that is organized, functions as though it were managed by individuals (even when it is not) and the result is, we can read into those events as though they were managed in a sense they actually are not.

This collective ‘meme’ can explain what is called in the biblical sense ‘principalities of darkness’ or that is to say a ‘spirit of evil’ managing events in a sense of both conspiracy and superstition.

There is quite a bit of ‘coincidental incidence’ in our world indicating peoples of the western culture are creating reality quite independent of self-aware thought and, to a rational observer, it could seem almost certainly by design when in fact this is not necessarily the case. Such would explain a belief in Illuminati when in fact it did not exist in any individual self conscious or ego-aware organized form but nevertheless manifest as an observable phenomena of symptoms or consequence derived from a collective super-conscious phenomenon.

A conclusion could  be there is a ‘super awareness’ of the group causes what appear ingenious evils of conspiracy when in fact there is no one individual or group of managers within the group capable of implementing these designs which, nonetheless in actuality, are perceived. To accomplish reality of evil would only require evil ideas as cultural drivers; example given Original Sin and the devastation visited upon our world’s women, the greatest and ongoing holocaust among holocausts.

The natural progression to end result would be, when a large portion of an aggressive society collectively believes in Armageddon as an archetype, all of the necessary players will naturally manifest in a super-conscious organized format empowered to bring it off, where no one individual or group of individuals or players could effect this by individual or personal volition; nevertheless the super-consciousness of the event’s initiating group insures creation of this reality for the collective whole.

Have you looked at the apocalyptic ‘good versus evil’ fables driving our world’s several fundamentalist religions’ reality recently? If cosmology is the effective driver of what appears to be pointed to inevitable catastrophic outcome, better to change fables, you think? Now, just how do you suppose this could be accomplished? As things stand,  we’re all little more than an extinction event waiting to happen. All of us.

For my European readers, think about this: Certain nations emptied their jails of criminals, emptied their asylums of lunatics and stirred banished religious fanatics into this hybrid vigor that became the USA. So rather than whine and complain about what should not have been an unexpected outcome, take responsibility and press your governments to prosecute American initiated international crimes under the legal principle of ‘universal jurisdiction.’

For my American readers, look at this way: Many of our citizens are Pit Bull-Rottweiler crosses with a bad case of religious rabies. Instead of engaging these dangerous cretans in debate with a liberal tolerance that comes across as a yappy-dog with a death wish (like Chihuahuas getting aggressive with Dobermans), how about waking up to the fact the USA is a world threatening entity and putting yourselves in harms way to do something about it. You could begin to change your tepid mentalities by writing your congressmen using no uncertain terms like ‘stop policies supporting domestic thugs and international criminals’ together with accusing Congress of supporting NAZIs.

Because what’s the point of having kids in a world you are standing by and howling like hurt Baboons over in debate, while otherwise merely watching the insanity of policies setting our (and everyone else’s) world aflame on the road to literal Armageddon. What a bunch of twits.

Meanwhile, I sincerely thank each and every one of you for reading at my page-

You’ve Got Apes!

A non-western interpretation of European cultural based mentality

The nature of the European based cultural mentality can be illustrated precisely like this:

Draw a parallel set of horizontal lines and below them place a dot (eye) at the bottom of the page. From this eye, draw an array of arrows (like a peacocks tail when spread) pointing upward towards the parallel lines and give the arrows names: Success, Failure, Right, Wrong, Light, Dark, Good, Evil, Praise, Punishment, Sacred, Profane, Winner, Loser, Male and Female.

Between the parallel lines write these words: Self-Image, Fear and Ego.

Above the parallel lines is a field where you write two words: Unseen Reality.

All European cultural based mentality (regardless of race, religion or creed) is trained from infancy or one could say ‘shaped’ to become imprisoned below the horizon of the parallel lines. Theirs’ is a complex matrix of illusion consisting of culturally inculcated denial founded on a deceit constructed in false self-image. The field ‘Unseen Reality’ above the parallel lines of the artificially constructed horizon occupies 90% of the page.

For the European cultural mentality (includes the USA and much of today’s world exterior to Europe, via colonialism, forced western educations and subsequent social contagion), the parallel lines serve as a mirror and they are convinced reality only exists within the severely constrained and misshapen perceptual prism they have culturally created for themselves (and are largely unaware they do this.)

How this came about was the fusion of Plato’s misogyny (denigration of female intelligence principles) with the Judeo-Christian archetype myth ‘The Fall.’ It would not matter whether you were an Atheist, Christian, Jew, Satanist or astro-physicist with an IQ of 170, all are subject to the reality-perception limitations created by cultural shaping, from  infancy, of the light/dark duality. This duality (split) is reflected in the personalities of those high IQs in science who can see no oxymoron in the fact of any proposed ‘saved by science future’ is relying on the culture and mentality producing the technologies destroying us, to save us.

With the cultural denial of female intelligence and consequent male mono-sexual narcissistic (or ego-self-image) mentality, the European based cultural ego’s logic is carried to insane collective extreme incapable of solving the problems it creates. As a metaphor (simplified view) we can say with fully one half (an entire brain actually, we each have a ‘pair’ of brains) of intelligence repressed, factoring in a ‘flipped’ Gestalt principle, 10% of intelligence is available for utility to the European based cultural thinking, and this easily exposes the culture and science which has set out to destroy our planet through exploitation of nature as SEVERELY RETARDED .. Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel inclusive. The women who reach advanced levels in European based culture are as pathologically erect in ego-self-image i.e. Acquired Ego-Priapism Syndrome or AEPS (pronounced ‘apes’) as any Western male.

Now, even as quantum mechanics proves Plato wrong* the European science blindly pushes into unseen reality, and because there are no cultural reference points, their science cannot grasp consequence of going where there is no cultural understanding, not knowing how to navigate the unseen reality. Whether (among other possibilities) Environmental Collapse (fused Plato/The Fall), a Large Hadron Collider creating ‘stranglets’ or ‘strange matter’ (Plato, primarily) or Armageddon (The Fall, primarily), how do you envision ending our world’s existence?

This is the construct and consequence of European male hierarchy and we all will meet our demise on account of it, future generations inclusive:

“In 1918 Christian missionary A. McG. Beede took Yale graduate Harry Boise to the Standing Rock Sioux and Turtle Mountain Chippewa reservations on separate occasions, where Boise explained scientific ideas to tribal leaders. Beede wrote in his report that both groups immediately understood the concepts without difficulty, saying: “There is no difficulty in leading an old Teton Sioux Indian to understand the ‘scientific attitude’ that the processes that give rise to phenomena may be more and more known by man and may be, to some extent, controlled by man, and that in this way the forces of nature may become a mainspring of progress in the individual and in the human race. The idea of atoms and electrons is easy and pleasing to an old Indian, and he grasps the idea of chemistry.” -Vine Deloria, Evolution, Creationism, and Other Modern Myths

The two tribal groups spokesmen replied to Harry Boise, following discussion among themselves:

”The ’scientific view’ is inadequate to explain … how man is to find and know a road along which he wishes and chooses to make this said progress, unless Manitoo by his spirit, guides the mind of man, keeping human beings just and generous and hospitable”  -Rising Sun, Chippewa

“The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us, is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right, because it is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly- except that spirit is with a man’s spirit for the light” -Red Tomahawk, Sioux

Moral of this story would be, the Eurocentric Western Civilization, having sleep-walked off a cliff, it will be a bit late to wake up in free fall.

End

* The theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat states: “The 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”

Related: Raphael’s Paradox:

Christian civilization is a civilization of inculcated homosexuality .. dark, angry and insecure. It is a civilization in denial. It is a civilization of theologically and culturally practiced misogyny. Raphael’s paradox points to the Christian homosexual’s necessary maintenance of denial (through hypocrisy) to succeed in this environment and how the exception of living true to oneself as an unabashed heterosexual, one might say ‘a pagan’, would require a certain stealth and luck, or at the least, a clever balancing act, to survive. Raphael’s paradox reflects these complications…

God’s Chosen is [worse than] a Dumb Idea

Dov Weisglass: “The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger”

The Weisglass quote is in reference to the Gaza ‘blockade’ where only the minimal survival sustenance has been allowed into Gaza as a matter of official policy for years. When you read in the news that Israel has opened a crossing into Gaza to allow food and medicines across, it is subject to the statement of Dov Weisglass. The reported openings are, in actuality, a means of generating a positive propaganda spin from what is in actuality enforcing the Palestinians living in what amounts to a “Ghetto.”

The word “Ghetto” in relation to Jewish history is not a kind reference. It recalls the Ashkenazi experience at the hands of the NAZIs. It also recalls the known malignant social phenomena “Inter-generational Violence”, where one generation passes on behaviors to the next generation.

I had once been censored at “The Guardian” public forum (discussion of articles) for daring to point out the “Price Tag” vandalism by the (Christian Zionist funded) fundamentalist Israeli settlers in the West Bank resembled “Krystallnacht” insofar (I was clear in this) as the social phenomena of “Inter-generational Violence” passes a malignant behavior on to a new generation. This is not only a family phenomena but a community phenomena. No different to the behaviors of the NAZIs impacted the behaviors of some Ashkenazi, I propose those Ashkenai are impacting the behaviors of many Palestinians in a spiral of inter-generational violence.

It is in this same context of “Inter-generational Violence”, I will point out Gaza resembles a “Ghetto.” The Palestinian young people presently growing up in Gaza will see themselves as “Freedom Fighters” little differently to those Jews who lived in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1944. So a new cycle of violence begins with a new generation.

Insofar as money attending the power-corrupt insures this cycle only continues, the brilliant people at “J Street” (a Jewish organization) recently polled the American Jewish community and came up with a startling finding: 72% of American Jews support a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders of Israel .. including East Jerusalem, but this fact is drowned out by the money of AIPAC. Who supports AIPAC? American neo-liberals and the right-wing minority Jews, politically wedded to a by far, far larger base of American neo-conservative right-wing Christians.

In essence, it is right-wing Christians producing the money and political drive supporting the Israeli policies in both the West Bank and Gaza. How it is politicians on the center-left (a few sane conservatives are at least trying) fail to shake off the boogey-man of AIPAC in the name of sanity and stand up to infantile, fascist killers like Bibi Netanyahu, is beyond the pale of reason. It is cowardice.

Netanyahu belongs to the LIKUD party which has been in governance (often in coalition with even more extreme right parties) since 2009. An IDF Special Forces veteran, Netanyahu has been known to have ordered illegal international political assassinations (murders), most famously the failed 1997 attempt on HAMAS leader Khalid Mashal. Under Netanyahu, the West Bank settlers ‘price tag’ criminality not only goes on largely ‘undetected’ (and unpunished) by one of the best governments in the world at intelligence, his political philosophy underwrites annexation of all Palestinian lands to the bank of the Jordan River. You see this play out (with lip service to peace) via the ongoing annexation by process of West Bank ‘settlement creep.’ In effect, Netanyahu and LIKUD are every bit as dedicated to the destruction of a Palestinian state as media promotes the idea HAMAS is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. This reality pointing to certain wider regional war and eventual world war, underlies the present circumstance. Meanwhile, honest narrative of the historic reality are buried in the rhetoric:

“For refugees, camps were shelters for the reconstruction of personal and social life, but were also seen as sites of great political significance, the material testimony of what was destroyed and ‘all that remains’ of more than four hundred cities, towns and villages forcefully cleansed throughout Palestine in the Nakba of 1947-9. This is the reason refugees sometimes refer to the destruction of camps as ‘the destruction of destruction.’ The camp is not a home, it is a temporary arrangement, and its destruction is but the last iteration in an ongoing process of destruction.

“This rhetoric of double negation – the negation of negation – tallies well with what Saree Makdisi, talking about the Israeli refusal to acknowledge the Nakba, has termed ‘the denial of denial’, which is, he says, ‘a form of foreclosure that produces the inability – the absolutely honest, sincere incapacity – to acknowledge that denial and erasure have themselves been erased in turn and purged from consciousness.’ What has been denied is continuously repeated: Israel keeps on inflicting destruction on refugees and keeps on denying that a wrong has been done” –Eyal Weizman: ‘The Least Of All Possible Evils’ (Humanitarian Violence From Arendt To Gaza)

It should be recalled in context of the Eyal Wiezamn quote, it was LIKUD’s first Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, built and detonated the first car bomb ever used in an indiscriminate act of terror in what is now Israel. Prior to the events acts of this nature had set in motion, 80,000 of the Arab world’s nearly one million Sephardic Jews lived in Cairo alone, largely in peace with their culturally near identical Muslim neighbors, a legacy of over 1,000 years tolerance. That tolerance had been destroyed and the blame can be fairly apportioned in a major share to the policies of the Ashkenazi victims of inter-generational violence, now in turn perpetrated against any perceived existential threat; Arab nationalism and Iran, even Americans and/or American Jews who stand up to AIPAC, but most particularly focused on the Palestinian people.

So long as there is a Palestinian identity tied to the West Bank, it stands in the way of a vision both Christian and Jewish right-wing ideologues hold for a ‘Greater’ Israel. Here it does well to mention Israel is not a party to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and endures no inspection regime relevant to its estimated arsenal of up to 400 nuclear weapons, even as Iran is pressured under the treaty Israel rejects. The entire world outside of those western democracies pushing policy in the face of middle east nations, see this hypocrisy and this strengthens the hand of radical ayatollahs.

The equation is World Peace versus LIKUD and the American religious right, in a spiral of escalating inter-generational violence the western democracies’ political leadership is too cowardly to honestly address. In fact so long as AIPAC enables LIKUD to move for a ‘Greater’ Israel to the bank of the Jordan River, any lip service to peace based on a Palestinian state is a calculated lie.

What is clear is, the West Bank settlement policy is a determined effort to destroy any Palestinian identity with ties to the land. In regards to Gaza, the only possible purpose (outside irrational cruelty) of ongoing blockade’s denial of sufficient non-military necessities has been to deprive that population of any opportunity at a reasonable international commerce and attending standard of living, is to drive it out in despair. But it’s not working. And even if it did, Israelis will have (with the backing of the western democracies who support the Israeli policies with arms and money, lip service to peace notwithstanding) created a negative mirror image of their own history.

Meanwhile, moderate Ashkenazi, secular Jews, humanist Jews, Sephardic Jews, Ethiopian Jews, Iranian Jews, sane Jews, all pay for the policies, with the anti-Semitism generated by the behaviors of personalities like Netanyahu and AIPAC ‘friends’, not only the Arabs suffer.

The insanity of it all is expressed in AIPAC which only exists in the state of power it does today because of extreme Christian support, Christian support that is firmly grounded in a belief they are the “New Jews” who will inherit Jerusalem when Israel has finally self-destructed.

In this case, the Israeli religious right should pay closer attention to their ally the American religious right and their ‘the Jews murdered Jesus’ conviction. Convinced they are “Covered in the blood” of Jesus [the idea Jesus had been murdered by the Jews] as they make money hand over fist covering the planet in blood with war profiteering, all the while in swoon over misogynist-anti-Semitic hate monger Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion of the Christ”, these allies of Netanyahu are certainly no friends of the Jewish people. This is the pogrom inspiration of a church made myth concerning a man they love to pretend is a murdered ‘God’ incarnate they engage in cannibalizing every ‘Sabbath’ with a ‘Communion’ of eating Jesus flesh and drinking Jesus blood. Y’know, if people really knew how to think for themselves, there would be no such necrotic fantasies and resultant criminal civilization .. just a thought, but meanwhile:

The paranoid Jewish Zionists embrace these rabid anti-Semitic Christian Zionists who fully intend the Jewish Zionists will become extinct once they’ve finished the dirty work of retaking the West Bank for the Christian Zionists necrotic vision on a road to Armageddon, meanwhile the Jewish Zionists label any non-Jewish anti-Zionist as anti-Semitic, when in fact most of the non-Jewish anti-Zionists are the bitter foes of the rabid anti-Semitic Christian Zionists momentarily embraced by the Jewish Zionists.

Now, in the mix of all of this, the anti-Zionist Jewish personalities are in an impossible state of being forced to play a game of ‘shut the fuck up’ or get blasted by all Zionists, Jewish and Christian, while the non-Jewish anti-Zionist is attacked by the paranoid Ashkenazi, who became paranoid and Zionist, on account of the pogroms of anti-Semitic Christian Zionists. These people bite the hand of people who’re actually doing them a favor by taking on the rabidly anti-Semitic Christian Zionists, personalities  who intend as soon as the partnership of convenience is over, all those clinging to Judaism will be tossed into a lake of what will almost certainly amount to man-made nuclear fire.

Meanwhile, the Sephardic Jews who’d lived for nearly one and a half thousand years in peace and tranquility in the world of Islam (excepting that period when they’d fought on the side of the Muslims during the Crusades) have become an extinct species in the Arab countries, not in the least because of both Jewish and Christian Zionism via policy and settlement in the West Bank and the ‘ghetto’ called Gaza, and the incredibly nasty treatment of the Arabs there. Israeli Zionists have enacted this social injustice, enabled by American Zionists, including countless conservative Christians who label all Jews (except ‘Jews for Jesus’) “Christ Killers”, while bankrolling these policies abusing the Palestinians. All this came about because of Jewish Zionist paranoia of living in countries with a majority Christian Zionists and history of pogroms, yet are (for reasons of the social psychology phenomena of inter-generational violence) behaving towards the Arabs like the Christian Zionists had treated them. This in turn set up the present cycle of anti-Palestinian pogroms, based on behaviors Jews learned from Christians, now on a scale of nukes & nations.

It only gets more ridiculous:

The Sephardic Jews who’d relocated to Israel as a result of fallout in the Arab world  from Zionist policies are absolutely 2nd class citizens- pointing to the anti-Semitic tendencies of the conservative Ashkenazi Jews, a race based oxymoron of Jewish anti-Semitism. This is obviously as clear as it is ludicrous and self destructive, when a Jewish person in Israel cannot be equal, because this Jew has the appearance, language and customs of an Arab.

I think a moral to this story could be: Any Zionism that is literal Zionism (unlike the benign Zionism of Bob Marley) is a loser. Perhaps this could be the idea behind the UN Resolution equating Zionism with Racism?

Inter-generational hate and violence is a known and understood phenomena of social psychology. Many people have not risen above this malevolent infection of the psyche that is imbued in a very literal sense of the Torah or Pentateuch: ‘the child inherits the sin of the father’
 (or in the case of certain Ashkenazi, the sins of a xenophobic & nationalist stepfather)

In the larger picture of nations, relating to this inter-generational violence, should it not be the responsibility of several national leaders to stand up and state to the Israelis, whether the leaders of Russia, Germany or Spain, examples given, ‘do not treat the Palestinian as our Christian has treated the Jew.’

If only because it is the responsibility of leadership to demonstrate responsible attitudes in relation to the acts of nations. And crucial, is that nation which had transgressed most egregiously in historic times should demonstrate this courage to confront the worst of these infantile and irrational behaviors, if only to remind the USA, not only Israel, do not dare to go down this road, do not dare to become the NAZIs.

In the end, whether Jewish or Christian ‘New Jew’, “God’s Chosen” is worse than a dumb idea, the idea that will get everyone killed if this insanity goes on much longer-

Bibi
