What is a Sovereign Citizen?

Who become the subservient insovereign dregs of society?

This is an extension to my recent post Don’t Tread on These: a look at the assumptions observed by strong law and order. Its advocates seek to exercise civic “sovereignty” in order to achieve the spoils of graft and impropiety with all the self-righteousness and self-whiteousness that devote inalienable rights without responsibiity; however, they never balk at denying inalienable rights to any other group that is representative of American society.

Abberant behavior writ large

What can I get away with? Does the system of governance reward personal liberty at the expense of unrestrained greed. If you want something enough, you should claim it as any greedy and slovenly sovereign would. To the arrogant go the spoils and the promotions.

Recently, a guy who hankered to become a police officer cobbled together some assault rifles, identity cards, and cheap labor. The hankerer is a certain Jeremy DeWitte. He enjoyed the trappings and the respect that a cop may sometimes garner, so he took to showing up at funeral processions riding a motorcyle and screaming obsenities at the disobedient with a loud and foul mouth. Jeremy crafted his own version of a twisted American dream. Unfortunately, it collapsed into ashes within a few short weeks. The Trump Administration allowed us to witness a society without scruples, a blood thirst that still knows no barriers. Anti-vaccination fervor continues to provide a sense of sovereignity to the least qualified and the most destructive. I remain convinced that Trump would have won reelection had a pandemic not ruled otherwise.

The American Empire has not won a single conflict in my lifetime. Every single attempt has cost more lives and funds than the ones that preceded it, yet the guardians of collective amnesia continue to stumble into every war with a pride that defines exceptional values as boundless for the sovereign American and openly hostile to the people they despise. American history is written large and arrogantly to apologize for each slaughter of the innocents, the extraction of geopolitically valuable resources, and the installation of puppets to administer power swaps. As its citizens, we own all the degradation, torture and death caused by imperious ambition — planetwide.

The system is systemically gamed at every level, the white-supremacism that drives ever greater inequality does not yield to any of those tightly defined levels. The body politic recognizes no fairness doctrine. A society steeped in racism never admits that the cancer of supremacism even exists. Black Lives Matters gets identified as a hate group, all conclusive studies that point to systemic racism are dismissed as unAmerican activity. Utter furor followed each utterance of any combination of three curious words in any order:

Critical Race Theory.

Critical Race Theory

For every lynching that takes place at any geography, at any moment in history, is automatically labelled as anti-liberty, anti-American, anti-God, anti-Guts, anti-Guns.

The ethnicity of the present Justices meeting as a US Supreme Court is wildly at odds with the will of the governed. Five of Nine are Catholic (a word that has nothing to do with universality), it now leans sufficiently rightwing to make its rulings even more aberrant. They represent an essentially single-issue faith that does nothing to address the country’s diversity amid enormous income inequality. It is an engine for maintaining the status quo, for directing reactionary political thought into rigidly doctrinal hegemony.

Cads and Scoundrels

Recently, fellow friends of Palestine invited a Palestinian woman to a Major League baseball game, a sport that draws fans of all ages. The expression “as American as…” includes a proclivity to demonstrative force. The National Anthem represents just another way to blow a few things up, the celebration of explosions works to favor the celebration of ignorance as well. The American calendar is replete with noisy holidays. Some of this is going on as I type: the fireworks offered domestically and at a planetwide level . They are gathering at a baseball stadium to observe F-16s breaking silence. The Star-Spangled Banner recalls a hell on Earth in the form of War Birds bringing random deth to innocents around the Planet. The Palestinan woman at the Ballpark was not forewarned of the intervention of peace in the sky above. She sought a hiding place where she could  hide and scream. PTSD is the everyday in Palestine, every day. We fund it and keep the insanity at a pandemic level. American bombs rip bodies into flaming pieces of nameless collateral victims of Pax Americana. The discipline of the Spartan members of our military state drops the “bombs bursting in air” to the children of Yemen. The object is to blow up bodies for the furtherance of fear and loathing in a military theater populated by drones. The inaptly named Department of Defense commands a disproportionate share of scientific progress. Drones were first used to drop death from a continent and an ocean away: job one. Using drones to drop Amazon orders had to wait, but capitalism is never far behind. The US Empire sells bright, gleaming works of art that get the job done with a sufficient body count to justify a war theater for our geopolitical friends in Israel and within the family of Saud. Explosions make customers happy. For each bomb exploded, a replacement order is cut. Munitions keep the merchants of death wealthy.

Killing children in the name of Pax Americana

Freedom fighters who drop hell from a blue sky, making the world safe for capitalist hegemonies. A blue sky is chosen because it makes the tracking of innocents into more visible. The joystick may be in an F16 or some such death dispersal device. Or that joystick may be located in a bunker somewhere in a red State. It is dark outside the hole where a soldier sits with headphones and observes the details revealed by the Sun. It also makes it possible to read the fear on the faces that have been assigned death. I understand that the cameras available on a drone are capable of allowing the death dealer to look into the eyes of the target marked for death. PTSD is the most commonly reported response for the brain of the joystick holder. Freedom is not free, it requires the expenditure of many black and brown bodies.

Of course, these bunkers are also located at trusted purchaser sites. The largest of these bunkers is populated by Israeli Occupation Forces located at extremely militarily important geopolitical sites. They are also brought to the field where an “enemy” gets obliterated by projectiles of many forms. Mobile units are strategically located near an apartheid fence/wall/barrier/figment of the imagination. Teams of death dealers decide on the specific methods for delivering humiliation. One popular decision is to aim at a single knee of a young freedom fighter on the inconvenient side of a loathingly enforced apartheid barrier. Maim the young such that they live miserable existences and “stand” as examples for the Israeli Occupation Forces.

I have friends who had invited a Palestinian to a baseball game. As usual, sports and F-16s dropped through the sky to add some thrill to a Star-Spangled Banner that speaks of a hell that gets the expeced resuts for our patriotic War Birds, the gentlemen who bring random death to the most innocent among us.

That Palestinan woman at the Ballpark sought a hiding placewhere she could hide and scream. It is what happens when your entire life is peppered with expendable bombs to waste expendable human units. American bombs rip bodies into flaming portions of nameless collateral value the world over. These are in absurdedly disproportionate war theaters such as Yemen. There, they patriotically blow up bodies to serve as targets in a game called fear and loathing. The US Empire sells these bright, gleaming phallics to get the job done with zero possible retaliation. Black and brown bodies are cheap if you are a freedom fighter who drops hell from a blue sky, making the world safe for capitalist hegemons. A blue sky is chosen because it makes the tracking of innocents: the targets. The joystick may be in an F16 or some other death delivering device. A joystick may be located in a bunker somewhere in a red State. It may be dark outside the hole in which a soldier sits with headphones and observes the details revealed by the Sun that illuminates targets and improves the kill count. It makes it possible to read the fear on the faces that have been dealt a death card. I understand that the cameras available on a drone are capable of allowing the death dealer to look into the eyes of the target marked for death. PTSD is the most commonly reported response for the joystick holder. Of course, these bunkers are also located at trusted purchaser sites. The largest of these bunkers is populated by Israeli Occupation Forces located at geopolitically secure sites. They are brought to the field where an enemy gets assigned a highly probably projectile made in the USA. The mobile units are positioned near an apartheid fence/wall/barrier. Teams of death dealers may decide upon different methods of humiliation dealt to the Palestinians for 73 years and counting. One popular option is to aim at a single knee of a young freedom fighter at an apartheid barrier. Maim them young so that they live unfortunate existences. So far, this has not reduced the number of individuals marked for maiming. The US allocates $3.8 to keep the death-dance cadence. In Israel alone.

Death by Extraordinary Rendition

Cops jump on new bandwagon, strangulation becomes a fad

This strangler only took five minutes to strangle a citizen-victim to death under custody in Alameda, California, a new favorite lynching technique that suddenly and decidedly has become de rigueur. It’s a staid normal for cops who wish to engage in the same loyal way that Derek Chauvin made popular in Minneapolis, Minnesota. “Death under custody” turns into a race to carve a notch into your pistol. Tune into the channels on the internet where such techniques are sharpened, where action plans are drawn, and where white supremacism turns its weight against undesirable elements, from the dregs of society that threaten to destroy the American Dream. Details are not needed because they might later raise questions that are better left unanswered. Get the job done, get the hell out, and await further extrajudicial orders online and on the street. Beware of teenagers bearing video-capable phones.

Death by custody

Police departments rush to train officers who end up killing people under custody in new startling ways. There are countries where such training is provided, where it is routinely conducted in military-sized groupings, places where the extraordinarily ugly term “extraordinary rendition” keeps extra judiciary torture and ensuing death under confidential gentlemen’s’ agreements. A gentlemen’s agreement to hide evidence under a pile of platitudes is maintained to make society safe for rogue players. These agreements keep the jail cells free for the lesser-desirable incarcerated, for victimless crimes where a crime is defined in the eyes of a lone policeman who receives nods of approval from those who look like him, who were created in the image of Him. Ask no questions and I will tell you no lies. Injustice happens and it happens in the blink of an eye. Suspect dead on suspicion of suspicious activity. Log it and forget it.

This is a thousand lightyears from Mayberry, but it is explained in terms that fit an American myth, a myth that bears no resemblance to a courtroom where decisions have already been made to justify death by custody. The amount of time taken to conduct a custody may range from a number of hours to a number of seconds. The presence of arms in the hands of the presumed criminal requires no details, anything from a cell phone to a pack of cigarettes is enough to bring a cop to enter the following magical incantation that closes the case:

“I feared for my life.”

QUOD ERAT DEMONSTRANDUM.

Justice is molded in the plot of a television program that churns out platitudes sixty words per minute. The cop shows that justify every police action runs from squad car policemen on a beat to the careful doling out of law and order in a justice system set in stone. From TV show to predictable dialog at the cinema that defines reality in white America. Dirty Harry cuts corners, but each corner cut is served to an audience that looks forward to seeing a perfect policeman in action for a justice delivered in chunks that are easy to understand, where it is easy to color within the lines. Just dole out instant justice, Mr. Policeman. Just do it, and do it fast. Make it fit the American Way. Make us feel safe, protected, and served.

Gobsmacked and Disgusted

Aid to the Church in Need

Yesterday, I learned of an organization founded in 1947, a team of Catholics who evangelize for the one holy Catholic Roman and Apostolic church. The basis for their formation is the belief that Catholics are the most persecuted religion on the planet. These fancy that Christians, very specifically Catholics, have more martyrs than ever, that they are subjected to waves of persecutions. These Freedom and Liberty lovers who wish to bring the naysayers to their knees. Their self-described victimhood knows no bounds. Their willingness to sell their souls for personal gain at the expense of others is manifest. The flame of capitalism is their icon.

While millions of Muslims are exterminated, this is happening

It’s hard to imagine that the 21st Century is yet ruled by likes of these friends of Inquisition and proponents for a return to the glorious days of the Crusades. Islamophobic nut-cases not only yet creep among us, but they are hideously well-funded. They are agents for a new Catholic Century, they are giddily received by the broadcasters who invite them to airwaves that are already sought by the true believers of rightwing supremacism.

Did I mention that they are well funded? Before Trump departed a residence on Pennsylvania Avenue, for the celebratory events of January 6, 2021. A new fascist with better people skills is already going through the grooming, Fascism doesn’t simply disappear from the scene, and its lifeblood is capitalism.

This is Freedom?

I am not the only person who has been gobsmacked by such events. The local drive-time broadcaster welcomed a member of the men-of-the-cloth who yearn for a return to the pre enlightenment. Here is a link to the interview that introduced me to these gentle souls, Steve Bannon was a drive-time away from the Vatican when he was shuffled out. A new team is always there to ring in the old days of patriarchal presumption. Aid to the Church in Need have no time for the victims of the US Empire who drop missiles on unarmed Muslims, hospitals, who starve millions at the behest of a fossil-fuel family (the Kingdom of Saud is a single family who purchase US arms by the billions of dollars.

China maintains concentration camps for the Uighurs, millions are exterminated in Western China. Compare these numbers to the sanctified Church that pays no taxes, yet recieves multiple billions of Federal dollars from Covid relief. It is simply and quietly delivered to their coffers.

A Google search reveals a great many proponents of propaganda of the faith society who join in with the spin. Racism is a meticulously measured force of a white supremacism that finds a ready audience and a yearning for a strong man to enforce the spirit of law and order that never goes out of style. Money to assure political success. CBS is one media source that is paying attention to the funds transfer.

Have I mentioned that racism runs rampant in the Holy and Apostolic parishes.These are not friends of George Floyd or any of the police officers who preceded Derek Chauvin. Blacks are simply not among the congregants, the few who have are of the ilk of Uncle Toms of a Clarence Thomas massive sell outs. Speaking more about Supreme Court seats: six of the nine Supreme Court Justices are Catholic, these six are also well connected with the lords and ladies of politic society. Not a single Muslim exists on SCOTUS. This while the genuinely martyred are among the two billion who identify with sects of their faith.

A Google search reveals a great many proponents of propaganda of the faith society who join in with the spin. A search seems always to include those who oppose movements — such as myself, but this organization manages to defy the expected. The proponents outweigh the opponents 100 to 1. A link to CBS connects the dots that follow the money. So far it is the only site that brings a discussion of the massive transfer of dollars to make up for the Catholic team’s losses suffered among the payouts caused by the sexual-deviants, enough to satisfy the court decisions and to leave several billion dollars for the home team. Curiously, the founder of the organization has been convincingly identified as a sexual predator. The very fellow who founded it. You may not be surprised to hear that the very founder who had his hands in the cookie jars started it all in his native Germany.

So what does the future hold for these neo inquisitors who seek to checkmate those among us who know the way to twist and turn the Constitution to keep America white ever again? That is a trick point. America has always been white-determined and favored. The cards are held and played to game the system in every corner of the US Empire.

Still gobsmacked me though.

Abraham’s Family Values

The three Abrahamic monotheistic faiths — the ones who celebrate the same deity — form something of an isosceles triangle. Two of them feel themselves fated to a certain god-directed purpose, what they share are tales that comprise an Old Testament to Christians and a Torah to the Judaic adherents. The Christians and Judaic adherents are called “People of the Book” by Muslims.

Islam is typically viewed with much disdain by the other two groups. Islam places faith derived from an angel proclaimed mightily by the Christians: Gabriel. He visited a short while with Mary and was patient enough to give Islam theIR entire Qur’an, a text that has more shared virtues than differences, but that gets lost when marketing the faith to new adherents. Marketers play a large role in selling one faith over the others. Commonality doesn’t make for good sales pitch successes. A good salesperson emphasizes the parts of the product they emphasize, “more of the same” does not make a sales pitch very convincing. You do not want to point to the stuff that is not “new and improved and preferred by your deity of tradition. Perhaps they are selling the way of the better god, perhaps a better way to spend eternity with friends and relatives who are spending eternity in the bad place. I have found that eternity is a slippery concept — three nanoseconds spent in the afterlife is the same length of time spent in the good place as the bad place, I guess it seems like a longer eternity if you have “chosen” the bad place. Catholic tradition does not assign any responsibility to their God in finding yourself doomed. The faith marketers insist that their God plays no part in the decision process. You get to end up there because you didn’t spend enough of your life praising the three personalities of the God who just can’t get praised too much. He (never ‘she’ by the way) never gets enough love from the folks who created him — they could have enjoyed all the fruits of “no knowledge” forever in Eden, but they kept finding themselves longing for the tree labelled KNOWLEDGE. Obedience is not exactly a choice, but following directions is everything, and that is what obedience is all about.

Tree of Life/Knowledge/Ygdrassil

Tree of Knowledge

Islam did not stop worshiping the same God as the other two sects that flowed from Abraham. Sunni and Shia grew into those sects when the Archangel Gabriel came down to convey the nature of Allah’s love for his faithful. (Jesus) and Mariam (Mary) are deeply adored in the Islamic faith. Gabriel related Allah’s intent to the chosen Mohamed, the occasion is described unambiguously in the Holy Qur’an. It represents a love letter delivered by the Archangel Gabriel to the progeny of Ishmael. The monotheistic God also reveals his love for Mariam and for her son. Far more is written about Mariam in the Holy Qur’an than the two books esteemed by the People of the Book, it all comes down to good salesmanship.

Feuds among human families often become as bitter as vitriol, the line of the triangle between the Jewish and Christians is short and is well travelled. In that triangle, the line between the Jewish adherents and the Islamic adherents is very long, the line between the Christian adherents and the Islamic adherents is similarly long. Misunderstanding and blind hate along those very long lines have only become more bitter and more filled with hate over the millennia. Slavery is accepted as the natural course in the first testament and this continues into the second (new) testament.

Jerusalem is the third-most important site for adoration to Islam and it has been that way for millennia. I have written quite a bit about events that reached a catastrophic level by 1948. I have also written about how the empires that developed in Europe have grown considerably after the “discovery” of the “New World.” This imperial ambition exploded into a messy set of “settlements” that were also connected to Forts from the Atlantic to the Pacific Coasts. Look at how many cities have the word “Fort” emblazoned upon their city “limit” signs. I happen to live in one of the “Fort” towns. These were developed to provide safety and comfort for the colonists that end up taking as much milk and honey as possible and to starve the indigenous peoples at the same time. Everywhere that the White-Supremacist ethnic cleansers appear, a fort is constructed. Zionism is another “patriotic” system that learned lessons of history. It developed in Europe and continues to occupy the settlements in Palestine.

Ethnic Cleansing

The European imperial state had already been arming itself and was terrorizing the British Empire. So the Zionist terrorists spoke the same language as the British Empire, this made gradual control of the imperial “forted” areas quite easy. By 1947 they were already ethnically cleansing unarmed Palestinians by the thousands. Their weapons became world class (including at least 100 nuclear weapons), as did the security operations that led to the creation of a nascent Mossad. They now ruthlessly control the entirety of what was named A Mandate for Palestine. Absolute control of every square inch and every Arab Palestinian refugee has already been effected. They are now at a mopping up stage. None of these operations are well understood within the American Empire because each major media source within the American Empire defends the mopping up operations as inevitable if not completely unjust, only the actual date is of question. Media has become a tool at the NY Times, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, and all the right wing hegemonies that keep the propaganda strong and deadly.

Polite Police Protect Systemic Racists At Every Opportunity

Derek Chauvin vs. George Floyd now takes the stage, and with it the same familiar team of white-supremacists standing at the fore. The actions are well-woven into the fabric of racism in the US, this time including a nine-year-old and a seventeen-year-old in a process that will deny their witness. These young and principled participants are already suffering the ravages of PTSD, they will have to live with these events for the rest of their lives.

The accused are always likely to become the exonerated as the judicial process discovers all the ways that a fabric of systemic racism allows in a white-supremacist system. Fiction morphs into undeniable fact when the hallowed myths arise to defend the indefensible, the blue lives that matter will win again against the black lives that must be yoked eternally under a systemic interpretation of exclusion and domination under the weight of darkly unprincipled law.

Derek Chaupin

This time the tale is told by the witnesses first hand, the drama merges the facts found on the ground. The facts report that George Floyd’s neck was pinned between the knee of Derek Chauvin and the asphalt below, all told in less than eight minutes of recorded history. This to serve the system and to protect the criminal police in an injustice system that always spins the wheel to favor law and order. We are asked to forgive the perpetrators and to judge the victimized at every encounter with brute force. Chauvin benefits from the procedures written in the statutes that keep policemen free of any accounting, to find the means to view the socially marginalized as worthless thugs who willfully choose to defy the law — a simple-minded view of law that persuades judges to side with the perpetrator and to toss the full extent of law at the innocent. The system has always been gamed in this way, it is how criminals get to walk from the crime scene and to receive admiration from those citizens who voted for “tough on crime” judges.

The right of the privileged to benefit from spoils is never permitted to change, tradition and heritage insist that the spoils be shared with the very people who game the system. Although the evidence has already been sequestered from questioning eyes, the American interpretation of justice demands that damning evidence never be exposed to the light of day. DNA evidence may determine that the falsely imprisoned must remain behind bars despite irrefutable evidence that they are totally innocent. Please know that whites who are falsely imprisoned are released to rejoin their families when such evidence appears. Damn near no blacks are ever released to return to their families, evidence be damned .

The laws that protect the guilty are the only laws consulted in the statutes that line the walls of the prosecutor’s office. This is not evidence of fate and the blindness of judgement, it is a means to fully remove citizens from public life due to the exigencies of race, to condemn every member of that race as potentially criminal threats to polite society. Polite society to be understood as white society, by force of history.

Civic’s Vandals

The Vandals did not need any civic values to sack Rome to the bone. They needed simply to occupy the seat of government held by a ruler who had moved into the emperor’s residence. Upon the god emperor’s orders the unruly lot stormed the legislature to seek objects worth looting. Democracy in Rome had long succumbed to decadence when the place lost its honor and meaning. As empty in value and substance as the stuff offered by the barkers who follow the pulse of a populace amused by bread, circuses and blood.

Riding the wave

On the 6th day of January: 2021 of the Common Era, a sorry crew of patriots (to use their own nomenclature) arrived — dressed as expected and looking for some heads of state to roll. Such was their role. A fragile vessel as compromised as the floundering cargo craft presently gripped in the geography of ancient Egypt, the present-day subjects casting about while followed by a plague that may as well be orchestrated by locusts. The command of the empire is as mired in the muck and as deeply imbedded as the Evergreen, a gigantic vessel presently clotting the flow of modern industry, clogged at its aorta.

Odd that the clot is located just south of the Mediterranean Sea, the central water loosely held by the hapless descendants of the Roman Empire that surrounded those waters two millennia ago. Rule of law succumbs to law and order in the instant that a heart loses its pulse. Hollow traditions are not the stuff of solid governance and discipline. They are the vacant stares of the disaffected and the politician’s crave for power and glory.

Upon Noting the US Imperial War on Iraq

Today marks the 18th anniversary of the disastrous US imperial invasion of Iraq. Near universal condemnation did not stop the Organization for the Project for a New American Century from deliberately lying about the reasons for setting off the circus to bring in support from “patriots” who were fed misinformation that tied an imperial greed for oil to the spurious connection of their former puppet Sadaam Hussein with the Saudis who turned aircraft into guided missiles on 11 September 2001. The plan to seize Iraqi oil had already been written into stone long before the circus fireworks began. Watching bunker-busting bombs 24/7 kept patriots glued to TV screens.

Riding the waves of vandals

The house of cards constructed on the geography of what is termed the Middle East destroyed the fragile balance held by the various Arab states completely devastated in The Great War. The US Empire had already invaded Afghanistan a year earlier, but the actual aim was the establishment of imperial footprints in oil-rich states. The Guardian published an opinion piece by the Climate researcher Bill McKibben, he ties the greed for never-ending flow of oil to keep the military hegemony equipped with fuel. Ironically, fossil fuels were given a new lease on life that kept fossil fuels burning indefinitely. Climate catastrophe became nearly inevitable.

The first victim of war is truth, the true-believer soldiers who believed the lies are fated to suffer the PTSD that those bitter lies brings, the knowledge that your never-ending string of tours destroys your soul. Tortured truth occurs when your sacrifices get chained to the devastation that a pointless war brings in the guise of “necessary” torture via extraordinary rendition and the indefinite incarceration of persons who played no role. They were secreted into legal limbos such as Guantanamo. PTSD leads to never-ending suffering by those who were fed the lies and lose a functioning conscious as a result, including those who choose death at their own hand as the only exit from eternal torment.

Guantanamo is the quasi-legal internment camp built by scoundrels, truth becomes a clay formed to look real, a brittle clay that shatters into fragments. There is no integrity in a ludicrous military state that believes itself blessed by a deity that strikes the “enemy” to forge a geopolitical house of cards. The US Empire whitewashes an institution called “democracy,” but it is actually an imposition of advantage by thugs set loose by their criminal agencies.

Israel is a so-called democracy created by US interests in 1948 to establish a land-based aircraft carrier that would fill the vacuum created when the downfall of the Ottomans fell to Western forces. Israel is a heavily militarized agent that serves as laboratory for intelligence bureaus that keep the folly churning into the future. It did not even exist in 1947, but its ability to stay in the game keeps every visage of a worthy democracy at bay. Israel is an autocracy that plays its Zionist European settler-colonialism to do what European empires always do — take on the role of a people blessed by their creator to liberate the conquered and to establish a spurious democracy under a presumed and jealous natural law and order. A system created and maintained to serve white-supremacist principles, to rule under the presumption of a white European colonial spirit.

Trumpism: Fascism über alles

I cannot emphasize enough how closely the body politic in the US rightwing relies on the surety and decisiveness that a strong-arm law and order can command. A streamlined top-down command structure that responds to the command of a Führer. Fascism is but a single election away. The party of Trump is already flowing in the blood of US Fascism. The legislature votes in lockstep with the aims of America First , there is no center conceivable to functionaries who vote as one, the leftwing gets eliminated.

Where go one, we go all — the motto of Qanon

The failed putsch of January 6, 2021 demonstrates just how deeply white-supremacism extends to the marrow. Turning off the mind is a knee-jerk response that signals party will, something already programmed in the AI of a mindless political loyalty.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is not a random aberrant odd shooter. She follows a coded predictable squeal of blind ambition that serves to bring cancer to every organ of the body politic. Greene’s was an uncontested win, yet her opponent still received 25% of the vote. Mindlessness becomes a political necessity, it is lobotomy by proxy.

Citizens United has made governance by billionaires a reality. Equal opportunity under the law no longer exists. Human rights get crushed under the heels of fascist boots. The Electoral College determines the direction, thereby outweighing the popular vote, the college allows the conservative voters to command more political force than states with strong progressive voters.

Joe Biden is a product of the US Senate. He is a master of compromise. He is an active loyalist of the Prison-Industrial System, a pawn of AIPAC, a military funder loyal to every office in the Pentagon. These three features already define his presidency.

Trump ignited the America First base, his legacy provides the skeleton of a spineless GOP. The conversion of the GOP into the party of Trump is already written in stone, it replaces the traditional party platform with God, guns, and greed. The prosperity gospel identified by a Bible illiterate as One Corinthians.

  • God is created in the image of Trump.
  • Guns echo the militia mentality of the GOP.
  • Greed recognizes the drive to replace billionaires with trillionaires.

21st Century European Squatters

I haven’t written much recently about the ambitions of the 21st Century European colonialists. However, suffice to say that their modus operandi is familiar for those who are students of European empires over the centuries. I have discussed their methods thoroughly on this blog, readers familiar with my research — and new readers — may find much background information at the following set of links. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have for me, as I vet my material rigorously and am prepared to back up any misgivings. Anyone who is not a troll is most welcome to comment.

Bill Ziegler’s articles on Palestine

The British Empire didn’t waste time when abandoning a former colony, they simply packed up, counted their losses, and proceeded to shore up their remaining interests for future gain. Intelligence agents built what was to become The Mossad before the occupiers declared statehood in 1948. Palestinians had already suffered under the Ottoman rule for centuries, the moribund League of Nations was a European legal instrument for settler/colonial ambitions tested by other imperial players over the centuries. Legal instruments such as one signed by Lord Balfour was a straw-man foil used to wrestle control of Palestine from the British in 1948. The Palestinians were nearly weaponless, were without a military, and were already experiencing massive ethnic cleansing by 1947. The Nakba was an inside job.

US Imperial Misperception of Jerusalem

When the British Empire left — without ceremony — in 1948, the transfer of governance to European Zionists was already effected and was operating effectively and ruthlessly, thus insuring white-supremacist future occupiers a piece of the spoils taken from indigenous Palestinians. Their impatience extended to the Mizrahi Jewish populations as well. White populations displaced the indigenous. White supremacist Zionists garnered a complete political, economic, and cultural hegemony. Zionism is a European belief system that grew rapidly during something called the Mandate for Palestine, vaunted legal instrument that left scorched-earth in its wake. There have never been any demilitarized zones — the Palestinians have now suffered 73 years of ruthless military control by occupying forces, first when the diaspora began in 1948, then further occupied by those forces in 1967. Settler colonialism continues to this day.

Occupiers do not need many international friends to keep the hegemony equipped and smoothly operating — the US and the Marshall Islands are sufficient in number to maintain control via veto power at the United Nations. Veto power has insured that the white supremacists keep the region safe for white people who have the pale skin of their European ancestors.

The US Empire began the long trail that leads to extermination for the Indigenous tribes encountered between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Land area by land area, geographical expanses carved with blood into 50 federal states. As history books like to say, “mistakes were made.” However, that does not mean that any recompense has ever been made or ever will be made to account for those “mistakes.” To the victor goes the life blood of the conquered.

Palestinians have, of course, not been compensated for their loss of a homeland to the entity that seems the divine right of the current occupiers. Imagine that a significant number of Native Americans were alive in a significant portion of each 50 states of the current US Homeland, that the Empire had somehow honored the treaties signed by the many tribes now decimated.

The Palestinians have no control over their basic survival needs. Even present-day advancements in COVID-19 vaccines are championed worldwide while the Palestinians are denied a single vial of serum by the forces presently occupying Palestine. There are as many Palestinians in that original land as there are occupiers who have stolen it. The occupied eke out an existence on the fragments of land not already claimed as the rights and spoils for the victors.
