*SIGH*…PARDON ME WHILE I RANT ABOUT ANOTHER (S)ELECTION ...

Pardon me today, but I've just got to rant, because I greet this new year with, well, a "here-we-go-again" sigh.

I'm in a bit of a "mood" today, because like it or not, we Americans (and therewith, the rest of the world)have to suffer through yet another "(s)election cycle" of goofy Dummycrook and Republithug politicians (already one of the Schrubbs is poking around, snout to the ground, sniffing things out, while the opposition cackles her torturous way through avoiding yet more uncomfortable questions), pretending they're for the good of the country and the American people, while they shaft us and the rest of the world with "health insurance company care" and empire building and "progressive" or "conservative" (take your pick) values.  I'm in a snit because this is also the 100th anniversary year of the outbreak of World War One, the "war to end all wars," and one of the stupidest conflicts mankind ever stumbled into, not to mention the way it was fought, as the Western Allied Powers essentially laid siege to Central Europe(Germany and Austria-Hungary). I link the two - the latest American (s)election cycle, and the stupidity of World War One - because World War One shows politicians at their stupidest, and the current bevy of John Boehners, Nancy Pelosis, Harry Reids, Mitch McConnells, Bushes and Clintons and Christies and the whole rotten crew associated with their parties, not to mention the military "advisors" pushing for invasions  to crush Iraq, or was that Serbia(what was his name, Colin von Hoetzendorff, Konrad Powell?), are just as intelligent as Bettmann-Hollweg, Poincare, Asquith, and the idiotic bumblers that staggered into World War One, driven by the insane technologies behind 'mobilization."

Among the insanity, perhaps only Count Sergei von Witte stands out as the only nearly-sane one, advising - nay, pleading with - Tsar Nicholas II that war with Germany would be disastrous for Russia (and it was). Austria did not survive the war as a great power (kinda hard to have an effective military when your lovely Skoda 42cm howitzers require a user's manual written in 26 different languages, and it's kinda hard to teach people how to fire 16" guns using comic book picture-drawings... European Union and North American multiculturalists take note), and the tsarist regime collapsed to be replaced by something far more insidious, brought about by conniving politicians in Berlin and New York with connections to a prominent banking family with one branch in each belligerent. Russia's Bolshevist government surrendered to Imperial Germany, which occupied the Ukraine, portions of Byelorussia, and what would become the Baltic States. It was subjected to a system imposed on it by Imperial Germany and the bankers in New York, that would last until its collapse under Gorbachev.

Stupidity thus has consequences.

Thus, voting for the same two groups of crony crapitalists with every (s)election cycle and falling for "this time hope and change really means hope and change" and expecting it to change is, as Einstein once observed, a form of insanity. The party of slavery was and is and will always be the party of slavery. The party of the suspension of habeus corpus while it imposes its "morality" on everyone will always be the party of "national security" and corporate empire-building and suspensions of due process to fight its wars.

But...

... perhaps things will change, perhaps people are in the process of waking up and registering that resounding vote of "no confidence" in both their rotten and corrupt houses, for a new Gallop poll shows something very interesting:

Record High Americans Identify as Independent

In other words, neither Republithuggery nor Dummycrookery can claim to be the majority party. They're simply the parties of oligarchical interest, and it's becoming increasingly apparent that that is all they are, in a system that no longer represents in any ethically legitimate fashion that growing middle, now at 42%.  The chart shows something else, very interesting I think. Note that Republithuggery identity rises after the Clinton years, as it rose after the Carter years. Note also, however, that it falls after both Bush administrations, but, unlike in previous years, and in spite of the ineptitude - and I am being kind - of the Obama administration on just about every level I can think of (sorry if this offends you progressives out there), there is no rise in the tide of Republithuggery, rather, a continuing fall, and a rise of independents.

Now, if the real progressives in Dummycrookery would just abandon that party(it's no more "progressive" than the Republithugs are "conservative"), maybe, just maybe, there could be a real political dialogue, and perhaps, some real hope and change. But for now, I am sticking to my "no confidence" guns. To be sure, I'll probably tune in to See No News, or See BS news, or Faux news occasionally, just to remind myself of just how silly it's become.  And I'll probably have to do the occasional obligatory "rant" here as I tune into this or that talk show or focus group, just to vent.

So bear with me folks, and those of you still supporting the nutty "left" or the kooky "right," bear with me too, for I claim my individual right to be wrong and ideologically impure and politically incorrect.

See you on the flip side...

  1. I have not voted in Australia for some years now. I cannot vote for either party, as both have allowed horrific things because of their need to please the US. And the lobbies I presume.

    I am happy if one party happens to do something good, but neither has my allegiance and I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils.

    I am glad that finally so many Americans are choosing to vote for an independent. I wish I could do that here, but I don’t find any that don’t tie themselves to one of the major parties, and compromise themselves.

    Could it be possible that Americans are growing more politically literate than the average Australian now?

    1. I don’t think people are VOTING for Independents.

      A Gallup POLL shows many people CLAIMING to be Independents.

      In these days, no poll can be assumed to be correct (it is possible, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it).

      My experience (which is very limited) shows that most Americans simply will not vote for principles. They don’t want to “waste” their vote.

      As insane as it sounds, all the people I’ve ever talked to about voting (which is not a large number), only care about one of two things:

      –voting for the party that wins.

      –voting for whichever of the two main parties they think is “better.” Voting for an Independent is seen simply as helping the “other” party win.

      But as I say below, I doubt it matters who sits in office, since they are just puppets.

  2. I read very carefully what Mr. Farrell wrights about Russia(I’m Russian) on one thing or another. It’s interesting for me to know what information about Russia gets to the west and USA especially.
    And I usually get upset from what I read. I do understand editorial staff of BBC, CNN, Reuters. They have bosses for whom Cold war never end until Russian culture will be destroyed so the Barbarian land could be colonized properly.
    In this particular post:
    “only Count Sergei von Witte stands out as the only nearly-sane one, advising – nay, pleading with – Tsar Nicholas II that war with Germany would be disastrous for Russia”
    Where do you get this information? I mean from TV, newspapers, history researchers’ books, wikipedia?
    Witte was the finance minister. Tsar Nicholas II wasn’t much interested in economy matters, so Witte could provide his independent decisions. The result of his 11 years work(as a finance minister) was that he let in Russian economy French and British capital, which created a huge anglophile lobbist group in high society. And this group of course was anti German. And this group succeeded in dragging Russia in The Triple Entente.
    When Witte became the minister of finance in 1992, the Tsar was Alexander III. The relations with Germany were more than friendly. 22 years of Witte and Nichalas II policy were enough to start a war. There were many people who warned Tsar, especially military officers. Witte prepared economic basis in Russia so that elite agreed to start a war and get huge profits from it.
    I excuse myself for digression in Russian history. But I just can’t pass by when I read inaccuracies in interesting people’s texts.

    1. Hello Konsti, I am not Russian but could perhaps be called a Russophile. I started collecting old and new books on the Russian Revolution and the Bolshevik years and I found I was totally fascinated by the history of that land.

      I was wondering if you had read “Third Rome” by Matthew Raphael Johnson, and if you considered that to be a good overview of the serfs, their lifestyle and the amount of freedom they had within the limits of their place in Russia.

      And what was your opinion of Alexander II and Nicholas II please?

      This is a digression from the subject of this blog, but I can’t pass up an opportunity to understand more about your country.

      If you have any books you think may help to further my knowledge, could you please give me the details. (I have about 12, including most of the chapters of “200 Years Together” by Solzhenitsyn.

      Thanking you, DaphneO

      1. Hello, Daphne. We were talking here half a year ago)
        You gave me then link for the part of that book. I have read chapters 8,11,13,14 and looked through the text. There are few pages mentioning serfs – common facts. Enough for acquaintance. For the advanced understanding it’s better to read Russian literature of the 19th century, for example “A Sportsman’s Sketches” by Turgenev.
        Alexander II came when reforms should already got going. Nicholas I started to prepare them, but revolutions in Europe, Polish revolts and Crimean war took energy and resources. Alexander II started reforms without preparation and current circumstances pushed him not the long-stand strategy. It’s seem inconsistent, but emancipation from serfdom was a tragedy for the peasants. While serfdom they had to work on landlord’s land but they landlord gave some land for the hole commune. And landlord was obliged to feed his serfs. It was in his interest to give some land for his surfs so that they could feed themselves from it. Reform broke this relations. Peasants who could not wright or read and stayed on their own immediately suffered from the reforms. This confirmed in statistics. After 1961 peasants diet started to decrease. By the murder of Alexander II(1881) this index fell on 30-40% from 1961. In the late 1870 there were first ever problems to recruit for the army. So inner social policy of Alexander II was a disaster. But he did succeed in ending Caucasian war(1829-1864)(which inspired by British Empire), sending Russian fleet in New York and San Francisco in 1863-64 to help Lincoln(against British Empire), suppressing Polish revolt 1963(Brit. Empire), Russo-Turkish War (1877–78).
        Nicholas II had lost his country and his policy was always on a way to a civil war. I can’t even say that this was his policy – he just eliminated from decision making. He liked to do simple things – spent time with family, hunting, high society, charity. If Tsar starts to provide charity work – it’s the sign that he doesn’t understand how to make system work, so charity won’t be needed. Nicholas II is a complete failure: no educational system(by 1917 80% of population still can’t read and wright), unneeded war with Japan; letting English, German, French capital in Russia(and they started a war between each other in Russia); unnecessary war with Germany etc.
        Daphne, I can’t actually offer you any book on history or culture. I hardly read anything about Russia in English. I sure recommend some Russian classic fiction – “Dead Souls” by Gogol(it’s about serfs but mainly about problems in 1820s-30s), “The Master and Margarita” by Bulgakov(this one is about chistianity and devil and a person near these categories. Some researches call this book “Russian gospel”).

        1. Thank you for responding.
          I have marked the two books you mention to buy.

          I was looking again at “The Third Rome: Holy Russia, Tsarism and Orthodoxy” and that might be one you would enjoy. I believe this man lived in Russia and the book completely turns the idea of the serf as a slave around. Yes, he was bound to the land, to the Lord or the state, but he says a lot of the reality of the serf’s life.

          Anyway, many, many thanks for responding. I have no idea why Russia has become a passion of mine, but it is, and I’m always prepared to learn more.

          1. You’re welcome)

            PS. I do not recommend to watch any of “Master and Margaret” adaptations. They have very little to do with the novel.

  3. I claim no knowledge whatsoever about what goes on in the halls of government. Nothing but opinion follows.

    But after watching American politics for several decades now, I don’t think it matters what party controls the White House or the halls of Congress.

    If in the next 6 years all national politicians (President and Congress) ended up being Independents, I don’t think anything at all would change.

    Since the “representative” part of “our” government is just a facade to hide the REAL bosses behind the scenes, it literally does not matter which party has all the government offices. Both Dems and Repubs have a history of ignoring 90% or more of ALL campaign promises. In the last 10-15 years it may well be 99.99% (for Obama, It may actually be 100%). The point is, they don’t even TRY to APPEAR as “representatives of the people.” They don’t even try. It is a provable fact that “representation” of the people is at a level of ZERO percent.

    It seems pretty clear to me that if Independents gained “control” of the government, they would behave EXACTLY like any Democrat or Republican: they would follow orders and do what they were told, or be immediately killed (and/or their family/friends would be killed).

    Personally, I don’t see any solution to the problem.

    IMHO.

    1. Although, the biggest threat would be an “informed” population…
      Other fish in the know, at the tips of pyramids of power, are in play.
      Then there is that pesky “other”, the proverbial fly(unknown) in the ointment.

    2. The problem with independents is when they run and win they tend to be carbon copies of either the Republicans or Democrats they “oppose”. Sen. Bernie Sanders of VT is a perfect example. A proclaimed “socialist” flourishing in and doing nothing to change the low wage VT serf economy. Add to that the difficulty of “third” parties to get into debates and to surmount the electoral red tape, makes me pessimistic about third parties but then again the times do seem ripe for them.

  4. I’ve been an Independent all my adult life, and have never voted any party line.

    Our Founders (some of them, anyway) held the belief that political parties corrupted the democratic process – that party lines would be followed instead of correct and honorable ideas and truth.

    There is an awakening going on, and I think that is why “they” are trying so hard to pollute the alternative research community’s message and information – there is a battle for the “hearts and minds” of intelligent people happening right now, and they are scared of losing the battle.

    Even the poor products of Amerika’s Edgy-cash-in system are beginning to see through what is going on. That is nothing short of a miracle, and points to just how obvious it is getting.

    The thing to remember is that it does not take a majority of th epeople to see the truth for thinigs to change, just a significant number in the right places.

    One of the most powerful things we can do right now is to pray, meditate, form the intention, or however you want to put it, of vast numbers of people, especially in the elite or at least positions of kknowledge, to have “scrooge” experiences and wake up to their humanity and integrity.

    If enough of us are working on “conditioning the medium” that way, we can indeed change the future. (For the better, please.)

    I often think that Diana’s funeral would have been the best place to plant seeds of this new conciousness, as something like 3.5 billion people watched it (way more than the Moon landing). That would have been the ideal opportunity to work this bit of magick. (Probably someone did . . . I recorded it but haven’t been able to bring myself to watch it to this day – long story.) We could have turned their own magickal working against them . . . .

    The good news is – we still can!

  5. Election time reminds me of flying in an aero plane and not feeling too good, so you reach into the seat pocket in front of you for the sick bag and…………IT ISN’T THERE, oh dear, and all you have to look forward to is barfing over your fellow passenger.

    I’ve heard Joseph do some “dummy spits” before but this one takes the cake. The only thing he didn’t mention is the prospect of having Hillary C run in 2016, now that would make every elite in town salivate.

    The UKIP party in Briton is gaining ground every day, and their elections will be interesting. Here in Australia, several “Independent Party” candidates won seats in the Senate, in other words the winning party, “Liberal National” party coalition may have won, but they don’t control the Senate. The two party system has run it’s course, the world has woken up via a little birdie called the Internet. Even John Kerry said “It’s hard to govern with the Internet”, and if that’s not plain enough then I don’t know what is.

  6. Have you forgotten Mr. Farrell this year is the millennium of the battle of 1014 ACE that freed Ireland from the yoke of the Northmen . At lest until they came back rebranded as the Norman in 1180 ACE. So you have if your Irish you have something to celebrate this year. How about Demlicans and Repubcrats to describe our one party political system with two faces.

  7. Need to get the “media” back into the public sphere, where the people have unfettered access to all information. The better informed the people are, the more checks & balances against monopolies of power, the better off planet Earth will be.

    1. Ah yes, ok, you went jedi on me and I was too dense to catch your drift.

      Yeah, I’m convinced we’re engineered. I’ll bet everything you have on that.

      I’m not sold on Icke, hook, line and sinker. But the broader narrative is right on.

      BTW, are you familiar with the research of Michael Tellinger?

      1. Hey, sorry but the impertinence above is because I posted it on the wrong thread, haha. Give me one more chance:

        Robert I agree with you except for the word “back”. The media has always been controlled; the only question has been a matter of degree. Years ago, and it still might be there somewhere, there was a quote by a 19th century journalist on the Nexus Magazine website about “freedom of the press”

        Some say the info on the internet cannot be controlled but to me that is also B.S. Otherwise why is there such a lobby and push to privatize the ‘net by turning it over to the private sector which, of course, would create a fascist alliance and put a censorship choke hold on information.

        I believe the real change will come from people making a conscious decision to change the priorities in their lives and then go out and actively do something with their new found information.

        1. Michael Tellinger is on my radar; but I haven’t formed a viewpoint good, bad or indifferent as yet. Have you?
          “Back” is indeed a misnomer. I thin “language” has been purposely corrupted. It is at least a three-way synchronous/asynchronous communication tool. The visual, audio, conscious thought(including symbolic) processes are happening at several brain/mind levels in a two-tiered basic system. One is tied to a signal signature(think “frequency/wave”); while synchronous with that is the Earth’s being own perspective. Now, imagine a asynchronous brain, that is milliseconds behind(indeed sometimes even seconds) the primary One. Call this the second communication. The one we are using now is operating with “Two” with “One” in basic control. Now imagine a universe that is synchronized instantly. There is no “lag” period. No locality, so to speak – this is the “third” communication platform. The other controls “one”. “we” think we control “Two”. And the Third is the one that One & Two depend upon & MUST operate within..
          How is that for a twisted paranoid communication broad brushstroke canvassed explanation?

          1. Tellinger is interesting by his discovery of huge geological formations that form specific patterns on the landscape of Northern South Africa and Botswana, so large, that their overall design is not apparent unless seems from the sky. The expanse covers thousands of square miles and the shape is indicative of having been formed by intelligent beings. I believe it’s somehow been dated to ranging from 70 thousand to a quarter million years old. From there the wild speculation ensues as to who could have been capable of making these formations and why. He thinks there is compelling evidence that ETs not only played a role in this but also interacted with our human predecessors. Fascinating stuff whether or not you buy into the ET story by the fact that those formations are too formidable to ignore.

        1. Respectfully, going jedi is delivering a cryptic message not discernible to the block-headed, uninitiated, or those either unable to read between the lines or too slavish to literalism to understand it’s meaning. In short, although I try I generally struggle to comprehend the jedi wisdom here at GDS.

  8. There have been other signs of hope as of late as well— both the no fly list and the gun sales ban in Chicago have been deemed unconstitutional. You almost get the sense that the malevolent forces behind the attempts at a US police state waited too long to seal the deal and now it is starting to unravel and the police state advocates like Bloomberg and Rahm Emmanual have been left sputtering and stamping their feet. Now the growing trend of re-institutioning firing squad in some states of the US may be evidence that the cosmic worm has truly turned because what could be more fitting and more efficient than a firing squad when dealing with these criminal traitors, terrorists and fascists who tried so desperately and sinisterly to to disarm the populace and set up their terror police state? My only advice to the firing squads: these creatures have no hearts so aim elsewhere.

    1. btw, fascinating stuff in the latest vidchat Dr. Farrell about the deposed Kaiser living in Holland– bewildered by the events which lead to Germany’s defeat and his abdication and his obsession in those final years of exile with uncovering the hidden forces which led to this inglorious turn of events. If the Kaiser didn’t know what happened, where does that leave us?

      I wish we could just use the bankster WWI playbook and start a war among all the far flung banking houses themselves with the hopes of getting them to disintegrate just like the monarchies of Europe did after the (not so) Great War, or as I think it should be called in our current age of competing victimologies– the Dreadful 1914-1918 Banskter Instigated Holocaust Against Caucasian Males.

      Who knows, maybe someone is using this playbook right now. Rothschild versus Rockefeller?

    2. Usually my cup is half full but when tracking the progress of the NWO agenda it’s always half empty. IMO, the warmth optimists may be feeling is their bladder emptying into their trousers.

      Enjoyed the firing squad rant as a useful segue into the “don’t aim for their hearts . . . ” (haha, classic F.C.) but the real rant should be to stop government sanctioned murder because it grants a presumption of authority where it doesn’t belong.

      1. “real rant should be to stop government sanctioned murder because it grants a presumption of authority where it doesn’t belong.’

        I agree with you there t.s. unfortunately, one of my many character flaws is my unrelenting desire to see bloody revenge on my enemies. I know as soon as I can overcome this bloodlust against my foes I can move up to the next game level. To my chagrin, I’m caught in a trap I’m having trouble escaping. f you are interested in reading the player’s manual for moving up game levels, it is right here:

        http://www.yogananda.com.au/gita/gita1601-1.html

        btw, you are no slouch yourself. “the warmth optimists may be feeling is their bladder emptying into their trousers.” Priceless!

        1. I’m no Gandhi myself. I’d be consumed with retribution should someone harm those I love. The difference is that we, not the state, are sovereigns who govern ourselves in keeping with karmic law. I pray/meditate for the temperance that, should I ever have to kill, it will only be in self defense and never to even the score.

          Thanks for the link. I’ve been trying to walk in the awareness of the P-man’s teachings for some time already.

  9. It’s hard to let go of nationalism and step beyond, to move beyond anger to a more dispassionate, albeit derisive view, but events like 911 and the ensuing wars and the ensuing Wrecking Ball taken to the country sure did that for me.

    This is a cycle, and it will turn. In fact it is turning, and the moral rot and oppression and destruction are but symptoms of elite desperation. The endgame envisoned isn’t going as planned, because they are insane enough to believe they can actually enslave humanity and remake the world. The harder they push, the greaer the resistance and the steeper the path. Remember Sisyphis.

    I have two bookmark folders on my browser that are stuffed to the brim. One is named “Madness” and the other, even larger, is “US Madness.”
