On the philosophical roots underlying Meryl Streep’s criticisms of President Trump

philosopher |fəˈläsəfər|
noun
a person engaged or learned in philosophy, especially as an academic discipline.
ORIGIN Middle English: from Old French philosophe via Latin from Greek philosophos ‘lover of wisdom,’ from philos ‘to love’ + sophos ‘wise.’

“from Greek philosopos”

What to make of those philosophers who conceal the fact their culture is not compatible with its pretensions? Is to ‘love’ perpetrating a lie to make one ‘wise?’

“Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury, was an English philosopher who is considered one of the founders of modern political philosophy. Hobbes is best known for his 1651 book Leviathan, which established the social contract theory that has served as the foundation for most later Western political philosophy”

Distilled from Hobbes’ inordinately complex, attempted order of things, contradictory points made in ‘Leviathan’ may be summed up so: In the…

“natural condition of Mankindthe life of man [is] solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short”

And in the same moment, without Man’s ‘natural reason’, God’s inspirations cannot be known:

“we shouldn’t renounce our senses and experience, or our natural reason, which is the undoubted word of God”

Do you suppose Hobbes actually meant to insinuate understanding derived from a man’s ‘naturally endowed’ beastly nature inspires one to deeper knowledge of God’s message? Is Hobbes acknowledging ‘God’s image, man’ is naturally possessed of the violence we have seen Englishmen, and their present day American cousins, visit upon every culture deemed inferior to their own?

Certainly not. If Hobbes were of a proclivity to be honest, he wouldn’t have to bury the contradictions of his culture in a massive circumlocution or a ‘leviathan’ that can serve no other purpose than to conceal a contradiction of ‘holiness’ inspired violence.

What we are actually looking at in the Hobbes example is, the phenomenon of Western philosophers burying western culture’s primal contradictions with artificially constructed complications, so those contradictions – in a culture incompatible with its’ pretensions – need never to be faced.

Hobbes is a master of this common (but patently dishonest) philosophical method. The result? A culture of philosophical progeny where, among other deceitful social phenomenon, you will find ‘prosperity gospel’ holding promise no matter your wealth derives from a military-industrial corporate colonialism responsible for the deaths of untold millions, if you ‘personally’ live an upright life and happen to be rich, it is because ‘God is blessing you’, the associated dead be damned of their (in your thinking) own volition.

At the other end of the spectrum? Hollywood actors, who make tremendous money selling distractions while profiting from the same cultural deceit; now shouting perfectly ineffectual ‘human rights’ remonstrations but kept their mouths shut when it had been the neo-liberal Obama pulling the trigger on drones slaughtering innocents.

Moving on to David Hume’s impossible postulation:

“In every system of morality, which I have hitherto met with, I have always remarked, that the author proceeds for some time in the ordinary ways of reasoning, and establishes the being of a God, or makes observations concerning human affairs; when all of a sudden I am surprised to find, that instead of the usual copulations of propositions, is, and is not, I meet with no proposition that is not connected with an ought, or an ought not. This change is imperceptible; but is however, of the last consequence. For as this ought, or ought not, expresses some new relation or affirmation, ’tis necessary that it should be observed and explained; and at the same time that a reason should be given, for what seems altogether inconceivable, how this new relation can be a deduction from others, which are entirely different from it. But as authors do not commonly use this precaution, I shall presume to recommend it to the readers; and am persuaded, that this small attention would subvert all the vulgar systems of morality, and let us see, that the distinction of vice and virtue is not founded merely on the relations of objects, nor is perceived by reason”

…is summed up in Western ethics as ‘Hume’s guillotine’ or the ‘ought-is problem.’ Now, forgive my naiveté when faced with this immutable Western dilemma of philosophy where the ‘ought-is problem‘ is posed…

“how, exactly can an “ought” be derived from an “is”? The question, prompted by Hume’s small paragraph, has become one of the central questions of ethical theory”

…as it occurs in my small universe if:

  1. A corporation is paying militia to terrorize the people of the Congo to buy rare minerals on the cheap. As this is a crime, hadn’t the people responsible ought be punished? David Hume’s cultural progeny would bury it with ‘how can an ought be derived from an is’ circumlocution (as if assigning responsibility were not possible.) So it is, Bush-Cheney walked free from a world-wide crimes spree when Barack Obama ‘looked forward, not back’ because we ought move on (move along folks, nothing to see here.) Meanwhile, on Obama’s watch, American special operations commandos deployments to the Middle East dropped 55% but climbed in Africa by 1,600%. How easily ‘we’ twist the philosophy (is there not some collective responsibility? Had that ought not be punished?)
  2. Going to collective punishment, Jesus reputedly said “as you sow,  so shall you reap”, patently ignored by both sides, more or less across the spectrum. But English philosophy is so convoluted, an evangelical can appear to believe Jesus saying “Blessed are the peace-makers” should be construed to speaking of, for all practical corporate colonial purposes, Colt revolvers.

Then, we come to Western Christian Civilization’s John Locke who no doubt had been influenced by Hobbes. Locke’s philosophy demands all men are born a completely blank slate upon which everything is drawn subsequently. In effect, there is no innate knowledge bestowed on man. If that were true, then Locke holding…

“The Bible is one of the greatest blessings bestowed by God on the children of men. It has God for its author; salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture for its matter. It is all pure”

…demands “God” who ‘created man in his image‘ couldn’t know the difference between his own butt-hole and either end of a hollow log, when he’d arrived on the scene in Genesis. No small wonder western philosophy is so fucked up.

The cumulative result should be no surprise, a culturally self-justified, rationalization for an unquestioned, unlimited State authority to rule over men and nations; nations of those very ruled over men who claim “They hate us for our freedoms.” But freedoms should not be conflated with ‘taking liberties.’ In reality, ‘they’ hate us for ‘taking the liberty’ of robbing their nations of natural resources at the point of a bayonet, for generations. When was Meryl Streep speaking out while Obama was ‘taking the liberty’ of slaughtering the innocents of multiple nations in ongoing resource grab, artificially propping up the outlandish standard of living, comparatively speaking, a majority of Americans actually believe they are entitled to? Where was Meryl Streep speaking out when Hillary was the first lieutenant of NATO, when NATO was decapitating the nation of Libya? The pretext of ‘humanitarian violence’ replacing Gaddafi’s relative few ‘abuses’ with tribal warlords, al Qaida and a chapter of Islamic State actually served to derail Libya transitioning to a gold backed dinar, an immense threat to the USA dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Why conceal the motive with a seeming compulsive lie? A matter of habit? More plainly, this is certain example of a culture’s action incompatible with its pretension. This is a matter of cultural habit.

Hobbes and his peers would not only be a supporter of the Divine Right of Kings & colonialism but in today’s world, with their self-serving convoluted denials of responsibility concealing contradiction – would support a modern police state and label it ‘freedom.’ English philosophy, deeply, culturally ingrained, but examined honestly, provides for apparatus of state represented in Robert Mugabe or Kim Jong-un as easily as a Barack Obama, The Donald, or The Donald’s rival, Hillary. They’re all cut from a similar cloth. They all behave as autocrats. They all either are, or harbor, kleptocrats. They’re all vampires, whether feeding off victims foreign or domestic or both. Their populations are, all, in some one respect or another, propagandized to point of immensely clueless. Their minions, for the greater part, don’t deviate from ‘the party line.’ They all suffer self-aggrandizing-self-conceited-self-deceits.

The substance of what Meryl Streep says (or doesn’t say) about Trump doesn’t bother me at all. What is astounding is, the stunning degree of hypocrisy, ingrained as it were, in the colonists’ philosophers and widely seen in their cultural progeny. Streep is, by definition, a colony sponsor; it matters not whether it were a historic rivalry between British sponsors of Rhode Island versus Massachusetts or Streep as sponsor of Hillary’s efforts at colonizing Syria with regime change versus The Donald’s desire to recolonize Iran. When the colonizing leader was to Streep’s liking, whether Obama or Clinton, she kept her mouth shut.

Per the inherent denial built into the English language philosophical patrimony, represented in Streep and her sincere self-deceit she holds the moral high ground, better were our inherited English philosophers labeled ‘falsifiers’, the phonetics seem close enough: fəˈläsəfər

Brought to you by the free speech clown

Certain Trump picks point to a religious-criminal cabal preparing for a Pence presidency. What do Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and certainly not least, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, have in common? Membership in ‘The Fellowship’, a quasi-religious organization-unregistered lobby with fingerprints all over past USA international crimes sprees. These three significant personalities all are under the ‘spiritual’ tutelage of Doug Coe, leader of ‘The Family’ where if you are ‘chosen’ there is a different standard, an unaccountable standard, where everything up to and inclusive of child rape is excused:

I’d almost forgotten the time Dan Coats, Trump’s pick for National Intelligence Director — the man to whom 16 intelligence agencies report — called me an “enemy of Jesus.”

Well, I didn’t hear him do it, but the source seemed solid. It was, I think, 2004, and I’d been invited to speak at the University of Potsdam, near Berlin, in a series sponsored by the U.S. embassy. My subject was “the Family,” the secretive fundamentalist organization of which Coats, unbeknownst to me at the time, is a member. When I arrived, my German host told me there’d been a little problem: the ambassador — Dan Coats — had blocked funding for my talk. “He said,” my host said, in thickly accented English, “you are an ‘enemy of Jesus.'”

My host was one of those deadpan Germans. He didn’t smile. I said, “You’re joking.”

“Yes,” he said, still unsmiling, “that is what I thought, too.” Apparently, the Germans had gone back and forth a couple of times with the embassy, unable to believe this was serious. And apparently the embassy personnel were plenty embarrassed about it, too. But that was Coats’ ruling, so it stuck. Fortunately for me, the university picked up my tab” Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power & C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy

Jeff Sharlet, in a 2003 interview, had stated concerning the Doug Coe cult:

“A lot of their key men in a country would be the intelligence [CIA] officers in the American embassy. Throughout their correspondence, that’s the kind of guy they would like to have involved [and] They always had a lot of Army intelligence guys involved, Pentagon guys”

Doug Coe: “Most of my friends are bad people”

Doug Coe’s ‘international bad friends’ have included (but are not limited to) Papa Doc Duvalier whose Tonton Macoute militia murdered up to 60,000 Haitians, “the most corrupt leader in modern history” (Transparency International) and mass murderer Suharto (Indonesia), CIA sponsored war criminal Gustavo Álvarez Martínez (Honduras), CIA ‘dirty wars’ mass torturer and murderer General Carlos Eugenios Vides Casanova (El Salvador), extrajudicial killer, kidnapper and torturer Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo (Equatorial Guinea), indicted war criminal Omar al-Bashir (Sudan), child soldier commander Joseph Kabila (Congo), Pentagon trained war criminal Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Kagame ally and child soldier employer Yoweri Museveni (Uganda)  and killer par excellence Mohamed Siad Barre whom Coe facilitated (together with Charles Grassley) receiving the American weaponry Barre used to ‘wreak a biblical terror on his own nation’ (Somalia, which has never recovered.) To name a few.

Doug Coe: “We work with power where we can and build new power where we can’t”

“We” clearly includes Dan Coats and a political ‘bedroom’ surprise:

“Sharlet explores the role of a distinct “elite fundamentalism” through our history and culture, and illustrates how it currently operates at top levels of American business, government, and the military. This may come as a shock to those for whom overt fundamentalism in the federal government was not apparent before the administration of George W. Bush. But Sharlet demonstrates its role during the Cold War and since. We learn for example, of how “charitable choice,” the legislative precedent for George W. Bush’s “faith-based initiative,” stemmed from ideas incubated by The Family, and was sponsored by Family members, Republican Senators John Ashcroft and Dan Coats—with an assist from Family associate Senator Hillary Clinton”

Yep, that’s right folks, Dan Coats and Hillary share the same ‘spiritual’ umbrella:

“Doug Coe is a unique presence in Washington: a genuinely loving spiritual mentor and guide to anyone, regardless of party or faith, who wants to deepen his or her relationship with God” Hillary Clinton

“You know Jesus said ‘You got to put Him before mother-father-brother sister? Hitler, Lenin, Mao, that’s what they taught the kids. Mao even had the kids killing their own mother and father. But it wasn’t murder. It was for building the new nation. The new kingdom” Doug Coe

Yeah, the Hitler, Lenin & Mao admiring Coe is the ‘Christian’ spiritual guru of both; Hillary Rodham Clinton and Trump’s DNI Dan Coats. What more do we know?

Aspiring members of Coats’ ‘Family’ can be excused multiple child rapes:

dni1-1

“But David Coe, Doug Coe’s son and heir apparent, calls himself simply a friend to men such as John Ensign, whom he guided through the coverup of his affair. I met the younger Coe when I lived for several weeks as a member of the Family. He’s a surprising source of counsel, spiritual or otherwise. Attempting to explain what it means to be chosen for leadership like King David was — or Mark Sanford, according to his own estimate — he asked a young man who’d put himself, body and soul, under the Family’s authority, “Let’s say I hear you raped three little girls. What would I think of you?” The man guessed that Coe would probably think that he was a monster. “No,” answered Coe, “I wouldn’t.” Why? Because, as a member of the Family, he’s among what Family leaders refer to as the “new chosen.” If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply

In relation to child rape, when you belong to Coats’ ‘family’ “If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply” (keep reading)

Coats & anyone’s minor daughter

If anything, our Director of National Intelligence & ‘friends’ should recall:

 

Related to this preceding, we have Hillary working with Republican ‘Family’ to reduce a sex trafficking conviction to the much lower level of a prostitution conviction, which would seem like an ‘insurance policy’ were the DC centered pedophilia to break into the open at any level:

“What we saw was Hillary shaving off here and there on issues she didn’t think that the public would notice, trying to win peace with the Christian right.

“On the one level, you say that’s great, Democracy works through compromise.

“When you look more closely at some of the legislation, like sex trafficking legislation, she teamed up with [‘Family’ Senator Sam] Brownback and allowed Brownback to redesign legislation meant to stop sex trafficking, to make it an offense punishable as nothing more than prostitution.

“I think most sane people know that prostitutes are not the real criminals in this business, it’s the people moving human chattel around the world. The Family looks at it a bit differently”

A 2011 ‘Family’ Senate membership list includes not only DNI Dan Coats but also Trump’s Attorney General pick Jeff Sessions, pointing to we’ll know who, what and why ‘Family’ crimes, inclusive of child rape, will never be prosecuted:

Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN)
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)
Sen. John Ensign (R-NV)
Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY)
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK)
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL)
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR)
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Sen. John Thune (R-SD)
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)

@ https://www.truthwinsout.org/pressrelease/2011/01/14142/

And then Mike Pence shows up:

“It’s this theology that drives the international exploits of a secretive group of Capitol Hill elites — including Jim DeMint and Mike Pence — known alternately as the Fellowship or the Family. The Family made rare headlines last year, when it was revealed the group had supported the Ugandan lawmakers who proposed an anti-LGBT bill that would make certain practices punishable by death”

http://indianavote.blogspot.com/2012/01/mike-pence-and-c-street-cult-aka.html

Regardless of what you might think of Trump, and our republic’s archaic electoral college (constitutional provision) that elected him, Trump is the USA’s legitimate president. Meanwhile, any naif who’d believe these sort of ‘family’ personalities wouldn’t stoop to supporting a ‘Bump Trump’ caper, to put their man Pence into the White House, is not only beyond head examining help, we also could easily be worse off for the fact.

“I’ve seen pictures of the young men in the Red Guard… They would bring in this young man’s mother. He would take an axe and cut her head off. They have to put the purposes of the Red Guard ahead of their father, mother, brother, sister, and their own life. That was a covenant. A pledge. That’s what Jesus said” -Doug Coe

Not only does Coe state the immediate preceding in the video, he goes on to admire the underhanded acquiring of power by Germany’s Nazis. Then…

“Doug Coe is a unique presence in Washington: a genuinely loving spiritual mentor and guide to anyone, regardless of party or faith, who wants to deepen his or her relationship with God” Hillary Clinton

“Doug Coe is my personal hero” -Al Gore

…clearly we are looking at a bi-partisan bag of maggots.

Finally, we have the trivia moment questions:

Who was the lawyer fresh out of Harvard Law School who went to work for Sullivan & Connolly about the time that firm began representing the Clintons in Whitewater? Answer: Trump’s CIA pick Mike Pompeo.

2nd question; who was advising Hillary’s people on damage control concerning Hillary’s unauthorized-unsecured home email server? Answer: Mike Pompeo’s former boss at Sullivan & Connolley LLP, David Kendall. DC is a very small (and incestuous) world.

22 January 2017 update: Coe had already powered his way into a meeting with Trump, this past December, using Mike Pence and  Senators  Chris Coons (Delaware) and John Boozman (Arkansas.)

coe_trumo_meet-1

“Every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953 has spoken at the breakfast, a point made at the meeting to Trump by the evangelical lay minister Douglas Coe, a leader in The Fellowship religious organization, according to Coons. Also attending the meeting with Trump was Boozman, Vice President-elect Mike Pence, and several of Trump’s faith advisers”

The meeting was ostensibly about ‘spiritual’ affairs but clearly in a context of politics, policy and bringing pressure on Trump. So the Mao Red Guard admiring ‘decapitate your mother for Jesus’ because it’s ‘the right thing to do’ minister Doug Coe has already arrived on scene with his ‘Prayer Breakfast’ diktat.

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 –

On Trump’s bankruptcy lawyer and pick for ambassador to Israel, Friedman could be described as so ultra-right, he’s to the right of Netanyahu:

“There has never been a “two-state solution” – only a “two-state narrative.” The former never existed because a “solution” to the Israel-Palestinian dispute would have required, as a threshold matter, that Palestinians accept Israel as a Jewish state, renounce terrorism, discontinue anti-Israel incitement in their schools and abandon their desire to flood Israel with so-called “refugees” from other countries who never spent a day of their lives in Israel”David Friedman

Like most people, to a greater or lesser degree, Friedman sees his world through a self-serving prism.  The first sentence of his short paragraph is refreshingly straightforward. The remainder of the paragraph is notable for its stunning hypocrisy. Let’s examine the first sentence, first, and then have at the rest of the story.

The ‘two-state’ narrative has always been a lie. It’s not only a case of ‘actions speak louder than words’, but the driving idea of a ‘Greater Israel’ is behind the Israeli intransigence in negotiations (or better said, avoidance of negotiations) towards a so-called ‘two-state’ solution (which under Israeli diktat would be no solution at all.) It is combined social and cultural psychology demands (or drives) the Jewish state towards a ‘Greater Israel.’ This demand is embedded in the mythology of history where ‘Samaria’ and ‘Judea’ are, at one time or another in ancient past linked, aligned with, or integrated to the historical Kingdom of Israel, having little to do with the fact of modern Israel.

According to the Oxford:

Samaria |səˈme(ə)rēə|
1 an ancient city in central Palestine, founded in the 9th century bc as the capital of the northern Hebrew kingdom of Israel. The ancient site is situated in the modern West Bank, northwest of Nablus.
2 the region of ancient Palestine around Samaria, between Galilee in the north and Judaea in the south.

Judaea |jo͝oˈdēə, -ˈdāə|
the southern part of ancient Palestine that corresponds to the former kingdom of Judah.

This next pretty much nails it:

roman_judea-jpg-1

“The term Judea as a geographical term was revived by the Israeli government in the 20th century as part of the Israeli administrative district name Judea and Samaria Area for the territory generally referred to as the West Bank”

A state does not give the names of one’s historical mythology to an area except that state intends to assert sovereignty over the same. Prior to this, Judea had last been the name of the area under Hadrian’s rule, changed shortly after the era of Agrippa II, the last Roman approved ‘Herodian’, or ‘titular’ king of the Jews, who were NOT a sovereign people.

The so-called ‘two-state’ solution was, and always had been, a geopolitical lie. The purpose of that lie has been, and always had been, to satisfy political correctness relating to international law. The USA and it’s Christian Zionist cohorts never dared to support the annexation of the West Bank as a matter of stated policy, because to do so would be to openly support a rogue state in its transgressions (if a rogue state is to be defined as a state in persistent violation of international law.) This is the purpose the ‘two-state’ geopolitical lie has served, as a cover story that buys time towards implementing the inevitable ‘Greater Israel.’

Inevitable? The USA supported Friedman’s Israel is a nuclear armed state aggressively colonizing the West Bank (with Friedman’s staunch support.) There will be a Greater Israel or there will be mushroom clouds, or perhaps both. People who embrace myths of history are not particularly rational people and Israel is not a particularly rational state:

“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)

Which brings us to the rank hypocrisy going to the conclusion of Friedman’s small paragraph. If there were Jews who were enslaved or fled Roman rule, there were many, many more who stayed in what was no longer ‘Judea’ but what became Roman ruled Palaestina, renamed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian. Where are those ancient Jewish people’s descendants today? They’re in Palestine and they’re called Palestinians. The inconvenience for the modern Ashkenazi is, most of these indigenous people had, with passing time, converted to Islam.

Imagine your rural family’s city dwelling uncle Mordecai’s entire neighborhood (Jerusalem) had been convicted of treason by the Roman state and their daughters were consequently enslaved and removed to Italy and surrounding area. Now, some 1,800 or so years later, Mordecai’s and his neighbors’ descendants show up and demand you give them your farm as their rightful inheritance because you are no longer Jewish. That’s what historical myths do to people.

This goes to the most crass aspect of Friedman’s hypocrisy when he had stated his conclusion to the Palestinians demand of a right to return:

“…their desire to flood Israel with so-called “refugees” from other countries who never spent a day of their lives in Israel”

So tell me, David Friedman (this is a rhetorical question), exactly what do your words describe better than Uncle Mordecai’s (put any European nationality here) neighborhood’s progeny descending on Palestine?

There is, after all, an experience shaping the Palestinian point of view.

Alternative title: Target Iran

Our republic went off the rails with the National Security Act of 1947 and the birth of the national security state. Since, the votes at the boards of Northrop-Grumman, DuPont, Chevron, Unocal, et al, have come to carry more weight in the direction the USA has taken than those votes of any organized political bloc. When the dust has settled, chances are Pence will be the shadow president a-la Dick Cheney and Trump the ventriloquist’s frustrated lap dummy. The national security state (read corporate boards) will keep it’s python’s squeeze on our institutions intact; what remains to be seen is what modifications will be made. The Trump ‘team’ includes some of the nastiest military-industrial and corporate personalities American has on offer in chicken hawks Rudy Giuliani whose dealings with the Mojahedin-e-Khalq has seldom been honestly exposed, and John Bolton who wants a war with Iran. And not least, former US Army intelligence officer and Bill Clinton CIA Director James ‘Bomb Iran & North Korea‘ Woolsey.

What do these personalities hold in common with a google ban on ‘fake news’?  They will never tell you the biggest fake news spigots are CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC, outlets that NEVER report on what this is all about; oil and gas, not terrorism as put forward by the western media. The Bush invasion of Afghanistan, where the CIA had (1980s) instigated and supported what became al-Qaida, was about a pipeline. Iraq was about oil where USA policy subsequently caused an al-Qaida branch to morph into Islamic State. The related Syria conflict is about competing pipelines, one favored by Russia, the other favored by NATO. Recalling Robert Kennedy Jr, earlier this year, penned an excellent expose on Syria and the competing pipelines behind that ‘covert’ war waged by the USA employing proxies, including radical Islamist groups aligned with al-Qaida:

“the Russians, who sell 70 percent of their gas exports to Europe, viewed the Qatar/Turkey pipeline as an existential threat. In Putin’s view, the Qatar pipeline is a NATO plot to change the status quo, deprive Russia of its only foothold in the Middle East, strangle the Russian economy and end Russian leverage in the European energy market. In 2009, Assad announced that he would refuse to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria “to protect the interests of our Russian ally.”

“Assad further enraged the Gulf’s Sunni monarchs by endorsing a Russian-approved “Islamic pipeline” running from Iran’s side of the gas field through Syria and to the ports of Lebanon. The Islamic pipeline would make Shiite Iran, not Sunni Qatar, the principal supplier to the European energy market and dramatically increase Tehran’s influence in the Middke [sic] East and the world. Israel also was understandably determined to derail the Islamic pipeline, which would enrich Iran and Syria and presumably strengthen their proxies, Hezbollah and Hamas.

“Secret cables and reports by the U.S., Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link”

The full essay can be read HERE.

The RFK Jr piece clearly echoes an earlier essay by Gore Vidal and a proposed pipeline USA based multinationals coveted, requiring a war in Afghanistan:

“As it proved, the conquest of Afghanistan had nothing to do with Osama. He was simply a pretext for replacing the Taliban with a relatively stable government that would allow Union Oil of California to lay its pipeline for the profit of, among others, the Cheney-Bush junta.

“Background? All right. The headquarters of Unocal are, as might be expected, in Texas. In December 1997, Taliban representatives were invited to Sugarland, Texas. At that time, Unocal had already begun training Afghan men in pipeline construction, with US government approval. BBC News, (4 December 1997) : `A spokesman for the company Unocal said the Taliban were expected to spend several days at the company’s [Texas] headquarters . . . a BBC regional correspondent says the proposal to build a pipeline across Afghanistan is part of an international scramble to profit from developing the rich energy resources of the Caspian Sea.’ The Inter Press Service (IPS) reported: `some Western businesses are warming up to the Taliban despite the movement’s institutionalisation of terror, massacres, abductions and impoverishment.’ CNN (6 October 1996): `The United States wants good ties [with the Taliban] but can’t openly seek them while women are being oppressed.’

“The Taliban, rather better organised than rumoured, hired for PR one Leila Helms, a niece of Richard Helms, former director of the CIA. In October 1996, the Frankfurter Rundschau reported that Unocal `has been given the go-ahead from the new holders of power in Kabul to build a pipeline from Turkmenistan via Afghanistan to Pakistan . . .’ This was a real coup for Unocal as well as other candidates for pipelines, including Condoleezza’s old employer Chevron. Although the Taliban was already notorious for its imaginative crimes against the human race, the Wall Street Journal, scenting big bucks, fearlessly announced: `Like them or not, the Taliban are the players most capable of achieving peace in Afghanistan at this moment in history.’ The New York Times (26 May 1997) leapt aboard the pipeline juggernaut. `The Clinton administration has taken the view that a Taliban victory would act as counterweight to Iran . . . and would offer the possibility of new trade routes that could weaken Russian and Iranian influence in the region.’

“But by 1999, it was clear that the Taliban could not provide the security we would need to protect our fragile pipelines. The arrival of Osama as warrior for Allah on the scene refocused, as it were, the bidding.”

What remains to be seen is, whether this group surrounding Trump, as responsible for the spread of terror via proxy wars abroad as anyone, has determined some dialing back is in order. Clearly the model of covertly supporting Wahabi extremism to effect regime change to benefit big oil & gas has increasingly spun out of control over the decades, since the ultimate stupidity of using religious extremists to wage proxy wars had been initiated in Afghanistan by Robert Gates under Reagan.

Just as large a question is, has Bolton’s, Woolsey’s and Giuliani’s hostility towards Russian ally Iran been tempered? Almost certainly not. Insofar as what the actuality of policy will initiate, a comment of Woolsey is particularly disturbing, as it had been made in the context of Russia and geopolitics…

“I think what Mr. Trump does is much more important than what he says”

considering:

Woolsey chairs the Leadership Council of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, an important bastion of hawkish “pro-Israel” advocacy in the United States that has served as an outpost for many well-known rightist ideologues. Among his activities at FDD has been to support the work of its Energy Security” program, which advocates for the United States to break “break the oil monopoly” that helps prop up “regimes and individuals who fund terrorist activities”

Based on open source analysis, it would appear this preceding applies to Iran as opposed to Saudi Arabia. Rabid Iran hater Bibi Netanyahu has a new best friend in Washington. Be informed; Woolsey was a top McCain advisor when McCain mimicked the Beach Boys:

Deep State Series, part seven of  eight

Today we’ll have a look at what’s behind ‘The Donald’ self-destructing within, and being sabotaged by, the GOP. It is as simple as this; Hillary belongs to the Doug Coe cult, also known as ‘The Family’ or ‘The Fellowship’, sponsor of the so-called ‘National Prayer Breakfast.’ Every effort will be made by the (primarily) Republican cult membership, to bring her to power. Other than it will be a relief the organized crime (Roy Cohn) mentored Trump will not ascend to the presidency, the other side of the ‘heads I win, tails you lose’ coin-flip/con-act perpetrated on the American people is every sane person’s nightmare; President of the United States Hillary Clinton. You could call it by the long title ‘because Jeb Bush couldn’t get traction it’s Plan B Hillary and consequently ‘The Donald’ is in process of being punk’d’ by a cult that controls the levers of American power.’

Here’s the background story, born of 1930’s fascism inspired American businessmen:

We begin with the considerable lengths (a name bestowed by former Pentagon liaison to the CIA Colonel L Fletcher Prouty) The Secret Team, which this analyst believes to be the Doug Coe cult, had gone to, to shift focus away from any scrutiny of the CIA; leading away from any understanding of the CIA having been co-opted by what amounts to today’s Doug Coe cult; in his suppressed book “The Secret Team, The CIA and its Allies in Control of the United States and the World”

“This whole issue has [of what the CIA had been intended to become as opposed to what it actually became] been made needlessly complex by those who have been unwilling to submit to and comply with the law and to NSC [National Security Council] directives as they have been written. We have said earlier that one of the most important facts of the law is that the CIA was created “under the direction of the NSC”. We see again that the fifth duty says that the CIA will “perform such other functions and duties . . . as the NSC may from time to time direct.” There is a world of difference in saying that the CIA will do what the NSC directs from saying that the CIA may do what the NSC authorizes. It is one thing to take a proposal to a committee and win their approval and thereby to gain the authority to perform the requested activity. It is an entirely different thing to be called to a meeting of so eminent a body as the NSC and to be “directed” to perform an activity.

“On this simple and clear point the CIA protagonists have rebelled and argued and connived for almost twenty-five years [now over sixty years.] Through a succession of skillful internecine maneuvers the CIA, working within the ST [Secret Team] and shielded by secrecy and the systems and pressures that heavy secrecy make it possible to utilize, has been able to either plant people in the NSC who are really CIA agents or men who will work at their bidding, or to so brief and brainwash the NSC representative or his designated alternate so that he will believe the CIA explanation of what the law and the directives mean.

“This is why it has been important to read the [longest serving CIA Director Allen] Dulles book line by line. This book is no more nor less than a final compilation of all of the soothing syrup and old wives’ tales Allen Dulles concocted and poured over the fevered brows of men in high office and high public and private position for twenty-five years. The book shows how the CIA has been “sold” to the inner staff of the Government and to others, such as writers and commentators, businessmen and educators, both in this country and all over the world.

“One would like to speak as kindly as possible and to say that these misinterpretations that cropped up in this book were no more than mistakes and that they can be attributed in part perhaps to ignorance of all the facts; but this could not possibly apply here. This cover story and fairy tale about the “evolution of American intelligence” had been fabricated by highly intelligent men and has been honed to a fine edge through years of skillful manipulation and practice. It is not the result of ignorance or lack of comprehension. This cover story is the planned scheme of a team of men who wish to present the CIA as a benign and well-controlled organization operating under law and directive, and doing nothing except intelligence, when for the most part and in actual practice it is not.

“The Agency is very much aware, too, that it cannot look back, because fate is creeping up on it. The tremendous pressures in this country that have built up during the long tragic years of the conflict in Indochina are driving researchers, politicians, and other concerned Americans to search for the origins and sources of responsibility for that disaster. This is bringing them closer and closer each day to the curtain of secrecy that has effectively veiled these areas [secret CIA initiated policies resulting in the Vietnam debacle] from sight for more than a decade. This pressure is now forcing Agency and ST supporters to begin a serious program of rewriting history, in a massive effort to protect and shield the Agency while shifting the search into other avenues. We have already said that the work of Daniel Ellsberg and the number of people who helped him may have been the first major step in this effort. The released Pentagon Papers do much to portray the CIA as it is supposed to be [which it has never been], while doing all it can to shift any censure of the CIA as an organization primarily concerned with clandestine operations, to the military, the National Security Council, and the White House”

Relevant to this preceding, the Doug Coe cult is set up precisely on intelligence agency model with use of ‘cells’, a not surprising development, were the ‘The Family’ a.k.a. ‘The Fellowship’ or Doug Coe cult, organized with the considerable abilities of personalities whose professional careers had been centered in clandestine services. There is strong circumstantial evidence the ‘secret team’ described by Colonel Prouty as comprised of a clandestine, psychopathic-apocalyptic cell, or deliberate saboteurs of peace, in control of the CIA ‘special activities’ division and more, and the Doug Coe cult are one and the same. Allen Dulles, an early, and the longest serving CIA director, was a World War One military intelligence officer. The Doug Coe cult’s Nazi sympathetic founder, Abraham Vereide, set up the organization in the middle 1930s, coincidentally timed to the Dulles brothers (Allen & John Foster Dulles) doing considerable business with Third Reich German industrial firms in what amounted to a cell whose membership included Prescott Bush, father of a future CIA Director – George H.W. Bush. Both founding cells had been comprised of Nazi sympathetic religious fascists.

Jeff Sharlet, in a 2003 interview, had stated concerning the Doug Coe cult:

“A lot of their key men in a country would be the intelligence [CIA] officers in the American embassy. Throughout their correspondence, that’s the kind of guy they would like to have involved [And] They always had a lot of Army intelligence guys involved, Pentagon guys”

This preceding refers to decades correspondence pointing to religion used as cover to recruit the USA’s intelligence community; or one could assert is evidence prima facie professional intelligence actors had set up and directed a non-state espionage endeavor against the United States, seeking to co-opt the nation’s intelligence apparatus more or less as a whole. The overall portrait developed is one of the Doug Coe cult, organized on intelligence agency cell model, had been initiated by intelligence professionals from its inception.

Of those very few photos of Doug Coe extant in this world, one of them is of Coe together with George H.W. Bush at the White House.

Since, it has been uncovered (primarily by investigative reporter Jeff Sharlet but noting there have been independent sources, inclusive of former Navy intelligence officer Wayne Madsen) the Reagan administration, where George H.W. Bush served as Vice President for eight years, had been staffed with Doug Coe cult members at the highest levels, particularly noting Attorney General Edwin Meese who ‘coincidentally’ was at the center of the circle which spearheaded the Reagan administration’s ‘faith based’ initiatives. When George H.W. Bush became president, his Secretary of State, James Baker III, was a member. We also know, primarily from Sharlet’s work, the Bush Jr administration’s people had included heavy hitters for the cult, particularly noting Attorney General John Ashcroft.

By this time, it is become clear the Abraham Vereide founding cell of the Doug Coe cult and the Dulles CIA associated cell Colonel Prouty wrote about are either merged or had been one and the same all along.

Colonel Prouty had gone on to note:

“As countries were added to the list their military aid programs were hastily escalated, and literally hundreds and sometimes thousands of American military personnel of all types descended upon them. Sometimes they arrived in uniform and sometimes in civilian disguise. They went to work immediately in support of the new political-social-economic doctrine, and before long new schools were being built — by the army; new hospitals were being built — by the army; new farming techniques were under way — by the army; irrigation and water purification projects were under way, — again by the army. Underlying all of the paramilitary and sometimes real military work was the CIA, working with the host government to weed out, to identify, and to categorize all of the subversive insurgents. In countries where the word Communism had never been applied to bandits, beggars, and rebels before, all of a sudden all opposition was given the name “Communist”. All the problems were attributed to Communists, and the counterinsurgency action was under way”

In today’s world, one sees a greatly enhanced version of this phenomenon, inclusive of World Bank, IMF and related USAID programs, as well as less ‘benign’ or overtly militarized programs involving the western powers armed forces in circumstance where the term ‘terrorist’ supplants ‘communist’, excepting those cases where the actual terrorists are given cover, for instance the ‘moderate opposition’ in Syria because they serve a means to an end; such as the overthrow of Assad.

In a less overt circumstance, the example could be Ethiopia where the USA has a low key counterinsurgency presence and the Ethiopian military has been forcibly relocating populations to turn fertile farming land over to World Bank associated programs where the actual beneficiaries are western corporations. These dislocated communities risk becoming radicalized and new insurgencies born. In the case of Ethiopia, the counter-insurgency program is already in place, essentially a USA funded police directorate protecting the affluent western stockholder’s bottom line; along the lines of the Dulles brothers model, followed on by Bush associates, utilizing the CIA to benefit United Fruit company throughout Latin America, for decades. If, or more likely, when, an Ethiopian insurgency develops, because Ethiopia is a Christian nation, the insurgency will be characterized along the lines of ‘The Lord’s Resistance Army’ or Joseph Kony. Furthermore, Colonel Prouty wrote:

“For all its fabrication and apparent unreality, especially in this open society, the ST machine does have a central soul or brain… or perhaps… holy spirit. It is the evidence of a form of new religion. It has its secrets. It has its divine and unquestioned rights and obligations. It has self-righteous power over life and death. It does not believe in anything. It does not value anything. It is utterly ruthless”

Colonel Prouty’s ‘Secret Team’ description is a close match to Jeff Sharlet’s description of Doug Coe cult…

“That’s the awful secret behind the closed doors … the Family’s authoritarian rhetoric, and even the Family’s real mission: business as usual, fortified by faith in more power for the powerful and privilege itself a form of piety”

…and points directly to Wayne Madsen’s description of the Doug Coe cult’s 1930’s founder:

“But his [Abraham Vereide’s] religious outreach involved nothing more than pushing for an anti-Communist, anti-union, anti-Socialist, and pro-Nazi German political agenda”

All of these preceding precisely describe today’s Doug Coe “Family” cult, the sponsor of the National Prayer Breakfast, featuring a membership for the most part made up of (faux or otherwise) Christian ‘millennial’ personalities (in alliance with neocon  and neo-liberal corporate power brokers, as well the right wing of the Catholic church) of which many populate the apex of American corporate boardrooms and US government and related international institutions; including numerous congressmen, senators and serving generals throughout the USA military structures, as well as structures such as NATO. No matter were many among them self-convinced ‘sincere’ believers, when it comes to practical action, per the military-industrial-empire networking represented in the National Prayer Breakfast, Jesus is the cover story.

Colonel Prouty goes on to describe the Secret Team:

Its greatest motivating force and drive is entirely undefined, because it moves by pressure. It reacts. It is therefore blind, meaningless, senseless. It will do anything in the name of anti-Communism. Yet in its greatest anti-Communist war it sees no inconsistency in the killing of one of its most anti-Communist creations — Ngo Dinh Diem. In its zeal to rid the Caribbean of Communism, it leaps at the chance to rid the Dominican Republic of Latin America’s strongest non-Communist, Rafael Trujillo. Any person or groups that know how to get to this infrastructure, who have the clearances, who have the need-to-know, can make an input into this ST, and as long as the desired action is anti-Communist, the system will operate”

If today you were to substitute ‘terrorist’ for ‘communist’, you see essentially the same behaviors and inconsistencies associated with each; the CIA & the Secret Team Colonel Prouty described over forty years ago, and today’s CIA & the Doug Coe cult. Whether Saddam and Bush, or Gaddafi, Assad and Hillary … Iraq, Libya and Syria had kept a clampdown on al-Qaida until the USA intervened, following which al-Qaida was strengthened and Islamic State was born, as much of our world marches lockstep with the USA towards looming apocalypse. Just now you see the same game try to play out with ‘Family’ man John Kerry on the point, in Turkey, not that Erdogan is a good guy but his motto for history could soon be “Et to Brute?” in regards to the cult’s practically wholly owned CIA.

“I would … like to single out Doug Coe, who has been such a guiding light in all of this”George W Bush

“Doug Coe is a unique presence in Washington: a genuinely loving spiritual mentor and guide to anyone, regardless of party or faith, who wants to deepen his or her relationship with God”Hillary Clinton

“You know Jesus said ‘You got to put Him before mother-father-brother sister? Hitler, Lenin, Mao, that’s what they taught the kids. Mao even had the kids killing their own mother and father. But it wasn’t murder. It was for building the new nation. The new kingdom”Doug Coe

“By the end of 1962 this nation had gone so far down the line following the Agency, the new Special Forces doctrine, the MAP, and the new U.S. philosophy as outlined in the President’s Committee report, that it was saying openly it was well on its way to carrying out as top national policy a major clandestine operation so big in fact that the entire government would be involved. Obviously, it could not be really clandestine in the sense that it would be kept secret from our enemies; on the contrary, it was a new kind of “clandestine”, so it would be kept secret from all Americans”L. Fletcher Prouty, former Pentagon liaison to the CIA  in “The Secret Team, The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World”

A small sampling of a secret operation “so big in fact that the entire government would be involved” would be, in the Senate alone, other than former Senator Hillary Clinton, Doug Coe cult associates have included (but are not limited to) past and present US Senators Strom Thurmond, Mark Pryor, Mark Hatfield, John Ensign, Tom  Coburn, Sam Brownback, Charles Grassley, Jim DeMint, Lindsey Graham, Conrad Burns, James Inhofe, John Thune, Pete Domenici, Bill Nelson, Don Nickles, Mike Enzi, Rick Santorum, John Kerry and Al Gore (Gore is on record stating Doug Coe “is my personal hero.”)

Other notable persons who’ve been under the ‘guidance’ of Doug Coe have been Watergate felon Charles W. Colson, past Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Ronald Reagan’s Attorney General Ed Meese, Ronald Reagan himself, George H.W. Bush (Bush Senior), Bush Sr’s Secretary of State James Baker III, Bill Clinton, Karl Rove, George W. Bush’s Attorney Generals John Ashcroft & Alberto Gonzales, George W. Bush, and not least, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, one time Chevron board director and erstwhile Obama National Security Advisor: former Marine Corps General James Jones.

Just now, as today’s GOP personalities step out of cooperating with Donald Trump’s candidacy, unbeknownst to themselves until this moment, they are self-identifying as cult members. The secrecy gig is up.

Doug Coe: “Most of my friends are bad people”

Doug Coe’s ‘international bad friends’ have included (but are not limited to) “the most corrupt leader in modern history” (Transparency International) and mass murderer Suharto (Indonesia), CIA sponsored war criminal Gustavo Álvarez Martínez (Honduras), CIA ‘dirty wars’ mass torturer and murderer General Carlos Eugenios Vides Casanova (El Salvador), extrajudicial killer, kidnapper and torturer Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo (Equatorial Guinea), indicted war criminal Omar al-Bashir (Sudan), child soldier commander Joseph Kabila (Congo), Pentagon trained war criminal Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Kagame ally and child soldier employer Yoweri Museveni (Uganda)  and killer par excellence Mohamed Siad Barre whom Coe facilitated (together with Charles Grassley) receiving the American weaponry Barre used to ‘wreak a biblical terror on his own nation’ (Somalia, which has never recovered.) To name a few.

Doug Coe: “We work with power where we can and build new power where we can’t”

The preceding “where we can’t” points directly to Bush’s Iraq and the follow-on Arab Spring, particularly, and the several color revolutions (e.g. Georgia, Ukraine, presently ongoing in Turkey) of recent times, where regimes that don’t play ‘perfect ball’ with Coe’s international criminal syndicate are toppled and this empire of destruction replaces them with the chaos represented in weak but pliable regimes propped up in their place. Hillary will continue this in fine style, she’s what the mob calls a ‘made man.’ Insofar as ‘The Donald’ … what a sucker. Trump’s little more than a petty mobster and unwitting reality show star of ‘Punk’d’ at a higher level.

Were Hillary to lose her protection tomorrow, with the FBI’s Comey and associates outed  as ‘Family’ men, or other scenario develop favoring Trump, ‘The Donald’ would have to become a ‘team’ player overnight or he’d be bumped off as quick as you can say JFK.

The Alpha Chronology my narrative as a Deep State survivor

In the alternative universe 2016 primary season, Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic nomination while Ted Cruz is in court fighting for the right to be on the fall ballot.

At the Supreme Court of the United States, an emergency hearing is underway on Ted Cruz’ eligibility to contest to become President of the United States. The issue before the court is whether Cruz, born in Canada to a Cuban father and American mother, is a ‘natural born’ American. Follows is the court recorder’s transcript of the ‘oral’ arguments:

In The Supreme Court of the United States

In the cause of

The Donald, Plaintiff

vs

Ted Cruz, Defendant

(sy)Phyllis Schafly & Ann Coulter; counsel of record for the Plaintiff

John Yoo; counsel of record for the Defendant

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Counsel for the Plaintiff may proceed…

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: Distinguished Justices, it is my distinct honor to address this august body in the matter of The Donald versus Teddy. Can any of the ‘boyz’ give “Natural Born” American citizenship to their kids? Mr Justice Scalia, you say you must interpret the law strictly as it reads, literally as you see it in front you, it has taken on a life of it’s own regardless of our founders [legislative] intent. Soooo… counsel for the defense will insist we have to stick to “Natural” born because that is what the Constitution says… we cede this means you must have an American mother! But there’s another way of looking at this, a greater requirement. How can a mere American mother be truly the whole definition of natural? Were pain relievers employed? Were delivery forceps used? These preceding should disqualify a birth as natural. Was there a midwife present for delivery? A conservative view of natural birth could go so far as to demand: did the mother eat her placenta? If not, how is the defendant’s birth in any sense ‘natural’ ?  We hold our constitution’s language insists any natural birth, must be Le Boyer method with a midwife present, at minimum, otherwise no birth, any birth, can be construed to be natural.

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Counsel for the Defendant?

John Yoo: My friends on the other side are making a specious argument. By their logic, except a midwife were to be present, most citizens could not be elected president if born of an American mother via modern process. Any such demand of the law is archaic. Now, what are we to do with a general and widespread absence of midwives? Practice necromancy? Henry VIII had Thomas a’Becket’s bones disinterred and put him on trial, so, other than 14 years residence requirement, there is precedent to bring Benedict Arnold’s bones home from England and following 14 years, we could elect a dead treasonous president. Or dig up Andy Jackson… if only because in earlier times it was common to deliver with a midwife. What living person would be eligible today?

Mr Justice Kennedy: Rebuttal?

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: Andy put his middle finger right where the sun never shines… in this Supreme Court’s predecessor and our constitution’s anus when he said “John Marshall has said what the law is, now let him enforce it”

Mr Justice Scalia: Mr Yoo?

John Yoo: Precedent holds ’I-da-ho’ born (pardon the Black English) Sarah ‘it sucks to be me’ Palin’s fellow Bible fascist, John McCain, was born in Panama of U.S. parents and McCain is a constitutionally legitimate “Natural Born American.” And surely this is because the United States Senate said so … speaking of any legitimate “Natural” birth… and Mr Justice Scalia, you state you must read the constitution literally… because it’s all about original intent… that is, “natural birth” could be our supreme law’s demand but in the annals of stare decisis established by this court it’s not necessarily our right!

Ms Justice Ginsberg: Mr Yoo, when referencing the ‘senate’, are you inferring ‘Caesarean’ birth is not eligible? Under any circumstance? Are we still a republic of laws or a case of Brutus’ gratitude shown to his patrimony? Please, I don’t require answer!

Ms Justice Ginsberg sits back and steadily staring at Yoo, primly pushes her spectacles up the bridge of her nose with a middle finger

Mr Justice Scalia: Ms Coulter?

Ann Coulter: Mr Justice Scalia, you learned from the Marshall court… tit for tat… you stopped the recount in Florida and elected George Bush… and put your middle finger up all of America and the world’s ass… speaking of where the sun never shines… the place where George was born to peer out from… we so love our ‘living constitution’ for that!

Coulter and Schafly, pitched their argument to the liberal justices, hoping for Mr Justice Kennedy’s ‘swing’ vote, but Coulter realizing her side could be losing, hikes up her already too short skirt, sits down and spreads her legs in full view of the several justices. Mr Justice Thomas inadvertently blurts out “Long Dong Silver!” as ‘Oral’ argument chaos ensues with counsels’ reptilian reflex soon turning the subject to democrats

John Yoo: Object!

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Mr Yoo?

John Yoo: If Ms Coulter’s skirt were any shorter, we’d be arguing the color of her panties!

Ms Justice Sotomayor: I assure counsel for the defendant Ms Coulter is NOT wearing panties. The view from the bench is clear… Mr Yoo, in absence of the stated object, your objection cannot be contextualized in present justiciable controversy [smiles]

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Objection over-ruled. Ms Schafly?

Mr Chief Justice Roberts is now staring at Coulter constantly, as is Ms Justice Sotomayor, not only Mr Justice Thomas

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: There could be a problem with ‘unnatural’ birth in the senate membership per se. Example given, those several Senate lawyers sucking off corporate PAC cocks, the worst sort of unnatural, closet morality you can imagine, speaking of the unnatural cocksuckers who give birth to our patently unconstitutional laws… nothing natural at all going on there. As well, a case of unnatural rebirth would be Al Franken giving up comedy to suck off corporate PACs… should have been a miscarriage somewhere there. Abort? I suggest respectfully the several honorable justices affirming Citizens United would have approved ‘termination’ in Senator Franken’s case. What candidate from the senate, any candidate from the senate, can claim natural birth?

Mr Justice Alito: Heil Fulgencio Batista! Excuse me, I meant, Mr Yoo will again proceed?

Mr Justice Alito is also constantly staring at Coulter

John Yoo: Joe ‘Homo Erect’us’ Biden… with his dentu-crème smile, is in line to replace the “Natural” born Obama… we should appreciate Joe’s sobriquet “Homo Erect’us” because Joe is from Senator Larry ‘closet latrine homo’ Craig’s “chamber”, so what is the possible problem with that? Larry Craig was never ineligible for reason of his natural perversions, considering science has demonstrated bonobos masturbate using holes, any holes, assholes, holes in trees, the oral orifice… as Hillary’s possible running mate, why risk another eight years of the wholly natural PAC-sucker ‘Homo ‘Erect’us’ Joe presiding over the senate?

Yoo is desperately thinking but fears his inexperience if he were to bring cunnilingus into the argument

Ms Justice Kagan: Ms Schafly?

Ms Justice Kagan, now breathing heavily, has also been staring all the time at Coulter

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: Joe ‘Homo ‘Erect’us’ Biden is just another ‘unnatural’ venal corporate cocksucker, he has taken piles of PAC money… never mind he secretly wants Israel to blow up Iran who will in turn blow up Berlin, Brussels, London and Paris, not merely Tel Aviv. Not to mention Iran blowing up our CIA liaised special forces in Baluchistan, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, soldiers who only wish our Congressional military/industrial corporate PAC cocksuckers did not keep them in perpetual deployments to war on behalf of Exxon/Mobil and Chevron… and wish the unnatural Congressional cocksuckers would just shut down the money paying for those wars [that would be constitutional] and maybe we could use some of the money saved to get breadwinners working in homeless families rebuilding our infrastructure… get them off the street… but Congress is too preoccupied with unnatural sucking bank and military/industrial PAC cocks to do that… Joe needs the ‘erect’ taken out of  his ‘homo’ to become wholly sapien but behavior modifications fail with rapists and pedophiles and likely unnatural primitive-warmonger-venal-corporate-PAC-cocksuckers as well, we all NEVER want ‘Dentu-Crème smiles Joe’ to be elevated to president…

Mr Justice Breyer: Mr Yoo?

Mr Justice Breyer has been studiously avoiding looking at Coulter

John Yoo: My client is born again! “Born again” is natural birth!! What could be more natural than possessed by the Holy Spirit? Aaaar-papa-papa-hula. Ooooo-vagino. Oreo-lolo-andy-olliegarcho-golly-boris-alloweeeenie!

Ann Coulter: I object to any such “tortured” argument! Fuck Yoo!! Stop speaking in tongues!!! Keep religion out of it!!!!

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Can anyone here translate tongues? No? Objection sustained.

As the story of Bernie Sanders nomination by the Democratic convention breaks on the newswires, Mr Chief Justice Roberts opens an envelope delivered by his clerk

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: I’ve just been passed a note from Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Dumbford. The general has declared himself Chief Executive Officer of these Christian Dominion States of America for life. All federal elections are suspended in perpetuity. Per General Dumbford’s orders, I hereby suspend the constitution on account of ongoing threat of terror and appoint all of this institution’s colleagues on my right to the FISA Court and further rule this body dissolved until General Dumbford’s new personnel are in place. The Donald versus Cruz is moot! [gavel bangs]

Mr Justice Kennedy’s ‘tent pole’ collapses beneath his judicial robe, Mr Chief Justice Roberts, together with Mr Justices Alito, Scalia and Thomas, jump up to perform high fives, totally oblivious to robes revealing their ‘artillery’ is deployed horizontally
