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

Gory, gory hallelujah! Boo-wa-ha-ha!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

+

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

=

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

A + B = C, Part One

A + B = C, Part Two

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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