Agelbert NOTE: Enjoy another blast I sent Azozeo for posting propaganda baloney at the Doomstead Diner.

Keep showing your TRUE right wing attempts to take the heat off of Trump COLORS, Az.   


That's why I don't post much here anymore. There is so much disingenuous double talking right wing propaganda BULLSHIT being spewed here that it is nauseating. 

What you SHOULD BE posting about, if you had an OUNCE of objectivity, is THIS:


Quote
Trump has gone to great lengths to protect Flynn, likely because the latter has information that would incriminate the president. It took Trump 18 days to fire Flynn after learning of his lies to Pence. Trump leaned heavily on Comey to look the other way in the Flynn investigation and fired Comey when he refused to let Flynn go.

It was the firing of Comey that led to the appointment of special counsel Mueller.

Recent Trump photograph  ;D


But you just DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT, DO YOU, Az?

WAR IS A CRIME

Troopaganda Eats Its Own Tail

NOVEMBER 12, 2017 BY DAVID SWANSON

SNIPPET:

First they tell you what to think the wars are for. They’re for protection from evil enemies, for spreading democracy and human rights.

Then you discover that wasn’t so. The evil enemies were actually human beings and no threat. The wars on terrorism have created many more enemies and spread terrorism far and wide. They’ve endangered rather than protected. They’ve damaged democracy at home and abroad. They’ve violated human rights and normalized their violation.

Then they tell you to keep the wars going for the sake of the poor fools sent into them and coming out of them with PTSD, brain injury, moral injury, and suicidal tendencies. If you’re not for harming more troops you’re “against” the troops.

Then you discover that this is all a twisted lie, that these one-sided slaughters that so devastate even the aggressors have no benefits, that people could have better and better-paying and more satisfying and less environmentally destructive jobs in peaceful industries for less financial, moral, and societal expense. It turns out the wars are for weapons profits and resource control and political domination and sadism.

Then they tell you...

July 1, 2012

Ed Herman, Co-Author of "Manufacturing Consent" Pt 1

Ed Herman, who wrote the famous book with Noam Chomsky, looks back at his life and what formed his thinking about the world




Ed Herman on "Humanitarian Imperialism" Pt 2

Edward Herman: The development of humanitarian intervention as a concept is essentially an overthrow of international law




Ed Herman on Global Finance Pt 3

Ed Herman: We've been in a period in which the power of finance extends into politics more aggressively than it ever was, so it's able to stymie any changes

Agelbert NOTE: Learn WHY the NAME of Trump was continually paraded before the media (and other places ALL OVER THE INTERNET  ;)  ) before the election.

Also learn why, AFTER the election, that continues to be the case. Even when the news is negative, the old advertising saying about "all news is good news" (for product sales) applies to mindfork propaganda on behalf of the Trump demagogue too.

The clever Orwellian BASTARDS doing this have a method to their madness. It consists of repeatedly activating the most impressionable part of our cognitive hardware so we will be imprinted with an unconscious bias in favor of the politician making the greatest noise.

People that possess critical thinking skills do not fall for this. Unfortunately, most Americans lack those skills. That is why they get suckered election after election.

The ones that don't get suckered are carefully and methodically (SEE: mens rea disguised voter suppression ) being denied the vote by being forced to go through  bullshit red tape hoops.

Trump is not your father. Trump is a THIEF who is, not just robbing your home  , but helping to burn it down!

If you want a clear head, TUNE OUT TRUMP BULLSHIT!


A famous author has theorized conservatives and progressives into two camps, one based on a strict, authoritarian view of the world and the next based on a nurturing view, where do these camps lead us?

Where have I heard this story before?? 
Let's hear the screams to resign please.  Hello, Hello, let's hear them now.

Must be going deaf.   ::)

Woman accuses Al Franken of kissing, groping her without consent


                           

A TV host and sports broadcaster on Thursday accused Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of kissing and groping her without her consent in 2006.



The incident happened in December 2006, she said, when she and Franken, then a comedian, were on a USO Tour to "entertain our troops."



Keep defending your hero while he keeps robbing you blind, GO.

I guess it is just too hard for you to admit that you made a tragic and unprincipled mistake by voting for the most egregious example of mysogeny, sexual harrassment, bigotry, racism and profit over planet greed that has ever cursed this God Forsaken nation.

You have had fully one year to recognize your mistake. Crooks and ciars named by Trump to all key government positions during the last year has revealed the true nature of Trump and his wrecking crew to anyone with a shred of objectivity.

Only someone who refuses to alter his position, even when new objective, irrefutable evidence requires it, can remain loyal to someone like Trump. Not changing one's position when new information warrants it is the textbook definition of a bigot. The Holy Scriptures, however, do not label such a person as a bigot; the Bible has another label for them:

Proverbs 13 King James Version (KJV) 19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. 20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

16 Women and Donald Trump
Quote

This is serious. Sexual harassment is pervasive and happens at the very top of the institutions that run this country. We owe it to all women to hold men, especially those with immense power, accountable for their actions. Yes, this includes the president too.

In the video, 16 Women and Donald Trump, we put together the stories of women who have reported being sexually harassed or sexually assaulted by Donald Trump. Seeing these women’s stories, one after another, is incredibly powerful – it's time to listen and act accordingly. As a society, we need to do a better job of holding men liable for harassment and abusive behavior. And we have a right to hear these women's their stories even as the mainstream news outlets dismiss them and the White House deflects responsibility for them. It's time to disrupt the powers that silence the voices of women in all of our institutions. Please share this video to remind the nation that Hollywood isn't the only place abuse happens and that our current president isn’t immune to being held accountable.

Agelbert NOTE: Expect Trumpers like G.O. (and others here who cleverly do not admit to having voted Republican, EVEN THOUGH THEY DID!) to wail and moan about Franklen  and every other distraction they can come up with in order to provide COVER for the Criminal in Chief and his racist, mysogenist, profit over planet wrecking crew.

Trump supporters worship GREED.  They do not care about ANYTHING evil or illegal that Trump and his wrecking crew do, or have done, as long as Trump feeds their GREED.

Probably not.

From the article:
Quote
Moreover, there is not one word of Marines landing at Langley, appearing in _any_ US mass-media outlet.

Source: "The Hal Turner Radio Show."

The tell was "Uranium One," which the drooling right has been flowing in the same way a serial masturbator rubs his dick raw. And with a similar result.

So let's check out the page for "The Hal Turner Radio Show."

Top 3 Alabama Newspapers Run FRONT PAGE Editorials Against Roy Moore - But all 3 Papers are **owned** by Advance Publications in New York City ! ! !

The liberal fix must be in, right? These are the same professional victims who complain about "pedophiler rings" who are shilling for a serial creeper and accused pedo.

It's not "White Privilege" it is IQ
No comment needed.


The "Too Stupid" "Too Ignorant" and "Too Corrupt" are STILL Saying "I just Can't figure out WHY Hillary Lost the Election . . . . " Here's some help for the stupid, the ignorant and the corrupt


Right. Easy-to-chew Hannity colon-nuggets, served up to you just in time for Thanksgiving dinner.

Fact-check a motherfucker, willya?


What are you, the 4th Reich of truth & bullshit.

Thoughts are electric, emotions are magnetic...

And shitposting is shitposting.

Well said!

AZ, Surly is a man of integrity and truth. I consider him a loyal member of the Cat Herders Association that I belong to. Cat Herders are always trying to get the bullshitters among us to try truth instead of negative noises designed to distract people from the important issues of our time. It is a a very bad idea to challenge him and a very good advice to listen to what he says.

I first encountered McLuhan as an undergraduate in communication back during the last ice age. Interesting to be reminded how he anticipated the implications of then-technological changes, when at the time it read, at least to be, as improbable nonsense.

This writer is addressing themes that occur to me, but which are too elusive for me to be competent to write about. One of the attributes of getting older being the you see your own ignorance in sharp relief.



Surly,

In the above, otherwise well written, article, there is a problem of perception that I first ran into in college when I was taking Social Sciences at Miami Dade Junior College (1965) shortly after I left West Point.

We were assigned to read a book (The Lonely Crowd) that you may have read, although I am certain the right wing 'greed is good' fanatics that frequent this site have never heard of it, no matter how much college or education they claim to have.

Quote
The Lonely Crowd is a 1950 sociological analysis by David Riesman, Nathan Glazer, and Reuel Denney. It is considered, along with White Collar: The American Middle Classes, written by Riesman's friend and colleague, C. Wright Mills, a landmark study of American character.[1]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lonely_Crowd

I read it. I did NOT just read the Cliff Notes. Beyond the snippet I just gave you from wikipedia, I did not review the book I read so many years ago to impress anybody here. I am responding to the article because that instantly retrieved "The Lonely Crowd" out of long term storage in my memory banks.

Here's the deal, Surly. A person is either driven by outside influences (peer pressure) or he is not. Yes, we all have a mixture of influences, both from without, and from within, that govern our behavior. But the ASSUMPTION that we are invariably governed by peer pressure is only valid if peer pressure ALWAYS overrides personal principles. Now, those Social Darwinst fascists at the helm of the media corporations that want to control our every whim probably believe that.

I do not. And you should not. A shi t sandwich disguised as a chocolate chip cookie is still a shi t sandwich, even if 40,000 bought and paid for bullshit artists are telling you otherwise.

What this boils down to is perception. The media fascists are attempting, as our gooberment and happy talk propaganda based social institutions have ALWAYS been trying to do (SEE: The Lonely Crowd), the "join the in crowd" con. They want us to feel "left out" if we do not do what "everybody else is doing".

But you and I know that everybody else is NOT "doing that". The polling of the American public makes it CRYSTAL CLEAR that they are on the right side of almost every issue of importance and value to an egalitarian socialist type government structure.

AND, most people, except for the allegedly big brained right wingers (like some who post here, who claim most people in the USA are ignorant rubes that swallow any bullshit, no matter how much it harms their best interests - how convenient for the right wing profit over people and planet Capitalist bastards.), DO REALIZE they are being handed a daily SHI T sandwich by the media and the gooberment.

Yeah, divide and conquer is what is going on. Yeah, they want to tear us apart. Yeah, they want to use the PERCEPTION (totally FALSE, but very convincing through bought and paid for repetition) that people who are guided by principle and not by the mob are outliers (i.e. anti-American/anti-Capitalist/Communists, etc. ad nauseum).

True, we all want to belong. But anyone who is willing to sacrifice their principles in order to "belong" is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

The article gives way to much weight to our need for peer group acceptance and ZERO weight to every average human's daily objective analysis of what is genuinely good for an individual and the society that he lives in (i.e. PRINCIPLED behavior).

I am not a Maslow robot. If the author believes that we humans, who certainly do possess base instincts that can, under certain conditions, be manipulated to our detriment and some bastard's profit (i.e. Capitalism), CANNOT function in any other way (i.e. Social Darwinsm is IT), then I must protest.

Social Darwinsim is NOT "IT". Maslow is NOT "IT".

We behave on principle or we perish. That is not hard to understand unless a person deliberately refuses to value principles because they deliberately refuse to give any value to morality based behavior. The book I read in college, The Lonely Crowd, TOTALLY missed the issue of principle. I said so then, even though I was an atheist at the time! LOL!

Yeah, I know Surly; I'm an outlier.
