5 December 2016. Trump Isn’t the Antichrist… He’s the Big Kahuna of a Bandit Band

Most of the stuff out there is incoherent shit. The Trump administration is shaping up to a ragbag miscellany with plenty of holes, not a monolithic whole. Donald likes to incite dispute amongst underlings so that he can be the fixer and final boss. Various politicians have used this tactic… FDR did… Hitler did. It’s not going to be a dictatorship, kids. Trump is Berlusconi, not Hitler. It’s going to be more of a Banana Republic than the Third Reich. Donald is a juvenile brat, not a psychopath. Mostly, he wants people to leave him alone to strut about and boast… that’s why many abroad feel that he’ll stop most adventuring by the neocons (and why many prefer him to Chilly Hilly). Nevertheless… he’s not a fascist… he’s not a Hitler. He’s a self-preening and strutting Mussolini (without Benito’s good points)… he’s a failed casino manager who couldn’t make known cash-cows work. He’s the Big Kahuna of a bandit band… not the Antichrist. It’s going to be bad, but not evil. Keep your wits about you… neither he nor his crowd are the sharpest knives in the drawer.

The “murderous dictator” Fidel Castro Ruz provided free medical, housing, and education to all Cuban citizens, and did that whilst under an economic blockade by the world’s most powerful nation. The “madman” and “terrorist” Muammar Mohammed Abu Minyar Gaddafi used the wealth from Libya’s natural resources to provide free housing, medical care, and education to every Libyan citizen. He subsidised food and fuel prices (gasoline was 0.14 USD (9 Roubles. 1 Renminbi. 10 INR. 0.19 CAD. 0.19 AUD. 0.13 Euro. 0.11 UK Pound) a gallon) and electricity was free for domestic use. He also gave every newlywed couple a wedding present of 50,000 USD (3.21 million Roubles. 347,500 Renminbi. 3.41 million INR. 66,750 CAD. 67,200 AUD. 47,500 Euros. 39,400 UK Pounds), and a 5,000 USD (321,000 Roubles. 34,750 Renminbi. 341,000 INR. 6,675 CAD. 6,720 AUD. 4,750 Euros. 3,940 UK Pounds) birthday present to the parents of every newborn child. Think about that for a minute. In addition, don’t try to tell me that we can’t do it, because it has been. Some might say it only worked on a small-scale, for 11 million in Cuba and 6 million in Libya, but they conveniently forget about the USSR, which with all its imperfections did basically the same for hundreds of millions of people for generations. Therefore, yeah, it’s been done, and what’s been done once, can be done again. Moreover, this time, even better. There’s much that we can do, and much to be done, but the starting point is to understand the real conflict and who the real enemy is. The richest One Percent considers us as their livestock, their inferiors. They intend to exploit those of us who are profitable, and to dispose of the rest. They’re the true enemy of Humanity, and it’s up to us, the vast majority of Humanity, to understand this and to do something about it.

Russell “Texas” Bentley

This is an excerpt… the rest of the post is here, for those who wish to see the whole banana.

Editor:

I heartily recommend ANYTHING by Russell Bentley… he’s put his life on the line for his principles… unlike rightwing mercenary filth like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Rod Dreher, and Bill O’Reilly… all loudmouthed shills for war… all gutless yellow cowards who refused to serve their country (that’s right, none of them served in the forces… all of them earned the “white feather” for that). Bookmark this link and this one, and you’ll stay in touch with one of the heroes of our time.

Yes… the Affluent Effluent are our enemies, and the sooner that we realise that, the better off we all shall be.

4 December 2016. DAPL Stopped… FOR NOW… Will Trump Reverse the Order?

There’s much glee about the supposed rerouting of the DAPL by the Army Corps of Engineers. I’d say that it’s much too early to break out the bubbly. Trump will take office in six weeks, and he’s got his own money invested in the pipeline. Furthermore, he’s an asshat who enjoys suckerpunching people. Therefore, just because Obama and the Corps of Engineers rejected the present route, doesn’t mean that Trump won’t reverse that order. There’s no call for any celebration yet. It’s time to organise… for when the plug-uglies pull a fast one (it’s not a question of “if”). Besides, the Corps didn’t nix the pipeline, it merely rerouted it, which means that DAPL is still a threat to the environment. I’d point up that’s there’s no call for joy in Mudville, yet. There’s every chance that the oligarchs are planning a riposte, with their boy in office. Have a care… the times are evil…

The First Nations won a reprieve for the time being, not a lasting victory (sad to say).
