THE REPUBLITHUGS, NATIONAL SECURITY, AND FEAR
Well, it's bad enough that we have the hyper-dimensional failure of Barack Obama in the White House and a bunch of Dummycrook toads non-running the Senate for him, but did you see the Republithugs' debate on National Socialist....er...I meant national security? I have to admit, I only watched a few minutes of it before I was totally sickened and disgusted, and turned it off, then turned it back on again, off and on, off and on, and thus it went for the rest of the evening, but I have been getting emails from various people with links to various people reporting their reactions to the debate, and I am gratified that there are some out there who are so totally disgusted as I at the performance.
Let me review my disgust. Let's go back to the pro-war euphoria of post 9-11, where we were told that fanatical Muslims were out to get us, and bringing down steel cantilevered-constructed quarter-of-a-mile high skyscrapers with jet fuel by smashing airplanes into them and letting the fire burn to melt the steel causing loss of structural load-bearing integrity and voila down they came.... woops, make that controlled demolitions, woops, nope, better make that nanothermite... Well, nevermind all that... we had to go to war against Islamic fundamentalists in Afghanistan called the Taliban because they were harboring Obama...er... Osama Bin Laden, terrorist mastermind par excellence and holdover from the CIA-backed Muhajedin. Nevermind about those nasty Taliban guys not wanting to go along with Enron Et Al's pipeline (remember Enron?). Then it was off to war against Iraq because they were making weapons of mass destruction that (aw shucks we were mistaken) didn't exist. I don't even grace all this with the name "national security." It's notional security because it is founded on a story, and regardless of which particular revisionist version of 9-11 one subscribes to, most, including myself, find the story has a few problems bearing the weight of assumptions and implications it has been made to bear, not the least of which is demonizing the entire Islamic world so that we, in the name of peace, freedom, and democracy, can invade their countries to protect "our" oil (and, by the way, keep it out of the hands of Russia and/or China).
And now, to a man (and, if current media reports are to believed about Michelle Bachman, a woman - who is singularly proud of the fact she was a tax lawyer for the government) the Republithugs are whipping up more fear-and-terror porn, so they can be elected to "protect" us. All of them, except, of course, Ron Paul, who is the only candidate on either side of that Mobius strip that separates Dummycrooks from Republithugs, that is calling the imperialist spade an imperialist spade.
But surely the most "brilliant" performance was by the Former Speaker of the House, the one whose first name is reminiscent of the name of a lizard: Newt Gingrich. Perhaps Gangrene would be a better surname for him, and here's why:
Showdown at Neocon Central Newt Gingrich vs. Ron Paul
Read that central part again folks:
"BLITZER: Speaker Gingrich, only this weekend there was an alleged terror plot uncovered in New York City. What do you think?
"GINGRICH: Well, I think that Attorney General Meese has raised a key point, and the key distinction for the American people to recognize is the difference between national security requirements and criminal law requirements.
"I think it’s desperately important that we preserve your right to be innocent until proven guilty, if it’s a matter of criminal law. But if you’re trying to find somebody who may have a nuclear weapon that they are trying to bring into an American city, I think you want to use every tool that you can possibly use to gather the intelligence.
"The Patriot Act has clearly been a key part of that. And I think looking at it carefully and extending it and building an honest understanding that all of us will be in danger for the rest of our lives. This is not going to end in the short run. And we need to be prepared to protect ourselves from those who, if they could, would not just kill us individually, but would take out entire cities."
And I agree, wholeheartedly, with the conclusion of the author of the article, Justin Raimondo, who sees the trap being spun by the Lizard's "logic":
"In less than 200 words, Newt managed the wholesale bifurcation of American law into two parallel tracks, one that acknowledges how "desperately important" it is to "preserve your right to be innocent until proven guilty," and the other which recognizes no such necessity – and, in fact, negates it."
That's right, it negates it completely, and we must ask ourselves, do we honestly trust a government that has lied to us, bailed out banksters to the tune of several trillions of dollars, do we trust a government not to turn those provisions against voices of dissent? The end result of the Lizard's dutiful bifurcation of American law into two parallel tracks we have seen time and again in history, and the only losers are the people. And Congressman Paul, to his credit, was the one voice on the stage with the cahonies to point out the "trading liberty for security" fallacy:
"Looking like a Halloween pumpkin left out in the rain, Gingrich went into novelist mode, scaring the children with the specter of 'losing a major American city' and bringing his fist down hard on the podium as he thundered
"'I want a law that says, you try to take out an American city, we’re going to stop you!'
"Paul’s answer was perfect:
"'This is like saying that we need a policeman in every house, a camera in every house because we want to prevent child-beating and wife-beating. You can prevent crimes by becoming a police state. So if you advocate the police state, yes, you can have safety and security and you might prevent a crime, but the crime then will be against the American people and against our freedoms. And we will throw out so much of what our revolution was fought for. So don’t do it so carelessly.'"
That was, and remains, the central issue. Police states do not stop crime, but they are notoriously successful in committing the same kinds of terrorism they are set up to protect against. And they are also notoriously successful in starting wars...large ones.
What disturbs me, as I read this article, is that the Lizard's scenario is, as yet, a hypothetical. We are being asked to fear an event that has not and may not ever happen. Unless, of course, these same insane people have it in their minds to "allow an operation to proceed" so that they can get their police state. After all, the modus operandi since 9-11 has not changed.

I DO NOT GET IT! WHY DO YOU REFER TO OBAMAS ADMINISTRATION as a hyperdymensional failier? I GET the rest BIG TIME —but this introductory statement really irritates me. Give me an a to z on that failier..stop throwing political judgements around like so much baloney. I immediately discredited your entire statement on first look because of that collective-no data-statement. Does this mean I am a card carrying OBAMA person? No. I will vote for whom I vote…Do not discredit my intelligence this way…
ON THE OTHER HAND–the lizard…I love that—is little more than aluminum in the sky in an attempt to distract who ever is stupid enough to pay attention to this –well, never mind..Ron Paul is right on. Unfortunatly, he has some major difficulties that are keeping him tucked in, like background noise. His age is one of these problems…His following is not very verbal and also not very large considering the put up job with Romny [sp]. I have observed the general media is avoiding him–and so forth…He is an advocate, not a candidate…His voice is being muffeled[sp] — The people around him are a side show. More than that, he appears to need medical attention…his energy is being tested big time and I suspect he is so compulsive obsessive that he is burning the biology candle at both ends…Hey I am old…and compulisve obsessive as was my father before me — experience is the best teacher…Forget the 3rd party ticket…get Ron Paul out there in as many forums as possible without the sword of Damacles hanging, do or die, over his head. His message is important…it is not small enough to fit into the political game…Give this guy a megaphone and let the Republicthugs play in the sand pile…
Off topic, but fits into the general malaise…You can put a fork in the Occupy movement; it’s looking pretty pathetic these days with only the mainstream media keeping it on life support. In San Francisco they were punked out by Black Friday shoppers, who are much more intimidating and violent. A handful managed to occupy 16th and Mission on Saturday. That will show those capitalist drug dealers, homeless street vendors, and crack whores a thing or two! As I have mentioned before, we would find out what it’s made of when the weather got cold.
Nice wishful thinking…And the Wash. Post?…Really?
Perhaps the larger question is why do we continue to consent to a tiny handful calling themselves a government having the authority to decide matters of life and death for all of us? How do they have any power at all unless we give them that power by believing that there really exists such an entity as a government in the first place? Can’t we see or understand that like a forrest, government is just the abstraction of living beings just like individual trees assembled together? You can’t point to it, describe it, or give it any qualities like life, that you can to an individual. It’s nothing but a shadowy illusion that we’ve been brought up to believe is real and that we must obey under grave penality. Goverments; all so called governments are ficticious abstractions in the same way that their creations of wars on “drugs, poverty and terrorism” are nothing, and exist only out of our ignorance and fear.
When anyone has an answer that makes sense, I’d love to hear it.
America and Austrailia, and every white country is suffering from a program of anti-white genocide. Forced, third world immigration, “assimilation for every white area, denial of rights and freedom. Of course, this is sick and lawless.
OFF TOPIC but:
Mars Science Laboratory launched today and in its search for extraterrestrial life it is going to land at…..
Just to put a different slant on this “debarcle”, where in the world do you Americans get these lunatic politicans?
I live in Australia, and as much as our politicans need a rocket up the kazooo, your guys are just “out there”.
The good Dr. Farrell is right about Ron Paul, he is the only guy who seems to know what the problem really is.
But the BIGGEST problem you guys have is of course the, Corporate Controlled Mass Media, as Jim Marrs keeps reminding us. Once you own people’ minds, its all over.
It’s very simple… America is a banana republic run by a plutocratic oligarchy, and hence, we have sock puppets running for President in each Presidential “selection” 🙂
I am a fellow Aussie and i think that our prostitutions are just as out there. Julia’s carbon tax for instance? And have you heard the dribble that comes out of the mad monk’s mouth?
They are all f****d mate.
Hyperdimensional failure and Lizard Gangrene. WIN.
Good juxtaposition: The National Security State Debate for the Repubithug’s Party President and the hyper-dimentional failure of Barack Obama. To be able to suffer thru it for 2 minutes is truly torturous.
A great prelude to the Absurdistan State that prevails today.
I stand on the IHOP side of the 9/11 equation.
The slime-newt-ball that crawled out from under, God knows what, is the worst thats EVER happened-down the campaign trail. An obvious puppet-in-place with this million dollar tiffany-tickets punched-in years ago. A truly ugly act that may just be …real. That he is even on stage while others like Nader can’t, and are sued by Mastercharged for using the patened word ‘priceless’, whereas those who put-out for any price get on the National Security State Stage.
I can’t even listen or watch that garbage anymore
called the Mainstream Media, or MSM for short.
It doesn’t fly with my emotions and blood pressure.
I wind up yelling at theTV like I’m the nutcase.
First and foremost, it is time for one and all to acknowledge that the government in Washington DC is NOT the government that the American Revolution gave us. It is a corporation that established itself out of thin air and we all volunteered into it under fraud.
“A republic, if you can keep it,” Ben Franklin said. Well “we” lost is, a long time before I was born.
For my entire life I have been lied to about this government, that it is based on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for the United States of America. It is NOT. Those who continue to pretend that it is do NOTHING to help correct the situation.
As you were turning your TV on an off, Dr. Farrell, did it look something like this?:
I should add “by act(s) of Congress.” Particularly the 42nd Congress and the 60th Congress, though there were others.
While it is understandable that there are Americans, many Americans, even the great majority of Americans, who have NO desire to actually be free and true sovereigns, having to give up their Social Security benefits among others, what stands out in my mind is that once they find out the truth, that they live in a Communist democracy…corporation, that the once great Republic sits empty, rather than acknowledge this fact and say something like “I am satisfied with things the way they are,” they refuse to acknowledge the way things are and they ostracize and castigate those who point out the simple truth.
…and they turn on the TV and watch those blasted ignoramus staged televised “debates.”
And I have NO doubt that Ron Paul knows this just as well as he knows the official story about 9/11 is a bunch of hooey.
I can only speculate as to why he plays his cards the way he does, possibly because he knows that Joe Sixpack and Jane Winebox would never vote for him if he told the REAL truth and thus he is a opts to have a voice where no other exists.
Ron has worked hard and long preaching liberty, free enterprise and constitutional government for the last thirty some years. His main target is and has been the fed and to return the nation to sound money, which is the only thing that will restore sanity end the wars and create real prosperity.
Don’t you think he understands that if he makes the case that 911 was an inside job that it would be political suicide? He might as well make the case for disclosure and the coming of the UFO’s to save us. What credibility would he have after the media and the establishment got through jumping on him?
Now do you understand why? He’s going to continue staying on point just as he’s always done and continue to try to educate the public. There are things that can only be said once you’re safely outside of the political life.
But I sure would love to see he and Jesse Ventura team up on a third party ticket. Now that would be fun!
