It’s Not Too Late

too-late-0

I mean it. It’s not too late. If you continue to allow The Mainstream News to misinform you, well, then, yes, it is too late. But, if you look beyond the messaging & propaganda of The Mainstream Media and allow your conscience, if you have one, to guide your inquisition & knowledge acquisition, you’ll soon realize that there are many more of us OUT HERE than The Mainstream Media and The National Security State ever wants you to realize. The Establishment‘s purpose is to fracture & fragment us into a million pieces so no form of solidarity & collaboration & cooperation can coalesce amongst The Masses. That is an Existential Threat to The Status Quo Paternalistic Hierarchical Structure that keeps The Rich wealthy and allows The Rich to attain even greater wealth at your, our, expense.

Pursuant to that introduction, I’m going to reprint an Op Ed piece from The New York Times in its entirety. I don’t give a shit if The New York Times has a problem with that. This message doesn’t belong to The New York Times. They can’t claim it as their own and contain it by charging others to see & read it. This message is free to all who have a Clean Conscience and an Open Mind. There are ways to prevent Doomsday on January 20th — ways The Democrat and Republican Apparatchiks won’t tell you about via their Whores in the Corporate Controlled Mainstream Media, and yes, I’m well aware The New York Times is part of that Flesh Trade, but sometimes you have to give The Devil his due without, of course, selling your soul in the process.

If Chris Suprun and I were to sit down over a course of days and weeks and discuss everything there is to discuss, we probably would disagree more than we agree, but we agree on what needs to be done to prevent Donald Trump from consolidating power come January 20th. I respect Chris Suprun for doing the brave & noble thing here. He is a Just Man. He is a Man of Conviction. So am I. Kunstler, last week at Clusterfuck Nation, dropped a blog post entitled The Rediscovery of Men here. Here’s a Man. Can you recognize one when you see one, considering they’re such a rarity these days? I hope so, but if the Commentariat at Jim’s blog (The Usual Suspects) is any indication of the entirety of his Readership, I’m guessing the majority of them wouldn’t know a Man if they were staring one directly in the face. Chris Suprun is a Man and you’re staring him directly in the face if you’re reading this. You can be a Man too, or you can shrink from Nobility, Dignity, Honor & Integrity and support Cowards & Bullies who prefer throwing rocks at children in playpens and calling that Manly.

This should not be POTUS. This CANNOT be POTUS. This is Donald Trump’s character. He’s still throwing rocks at the toddler in the playpen, and guess what — you’re, collectively, the FUCKING TODDLER. Get a FUCKING CLUE you fucking Sadomasochists!!!!!

This Really Is A Playpen. Designed By Corrections Corporation Of America No Doubt. I Wonder If The Donald Has Stock In CCA? He Can Have His Cake And Eat It Too. He Can Throw Rocks At You In Your Playpen That's Really A Cell And He Can Make A Healthy Profit Off Of It Paid For With Your Tax Dollars. Sweet. What's Not To Like? Donald Trump Is A Real Man. Right? He Doesn't Need To Rediscover Man. He's Found Man. He's The Man!! God, If There Is One, Save Us All But I know You Won't If You Exist.

Confident. Incorrigible. Bully: Little Donny was a lot like candidate Donald Trump

The Washington Post

Dennis Burnham was four years younger and lived around the corner from Donald. He inherited his own impression of his neighbor from his mother, who warned that he should “stay away from the Trumps.”

“Donald was known to be a bully, I was a little kid, and my parents didn’t want me beaten up,” said Burnham, 65, a business consultant in Texas.

Once when she left Dennis in a playpen in a back yard adjoining the Trumps’ property, Martha Burnham returned to find Donald throwing rocks at her son. “She saw Donald standing at the fence,” Dennis Burnham said, “using the playpen for target ­practice.”

The Jill Stein sponsored Recount Effort is still important and instructive. If it succeeds, meaning Donald Trump’s lawyers are not successful in blocking it (gee, why would he want to do that considering he himself has claimed the election was rigged?), hopefully it will reveal the extent of the corruption in the election process and hopefully a number of people will be going to jail, although I kinda doubt it. Contrary to public opinion, Hillary and The Democrats are not behind the Recount Effort. Believe it or not, they’re just fine with The Donald as POTUS. Remember, they’re part of The Establishment and they know they’re covered and they know they’ll be taken care of and protected. Look at Obama. The faux Donald Trump indignation & fear-mongering he displayed during the campaign has completely disappeared. He has a huge smile on his face. All is well. Nothing to see here. Business as usual. He even has gone so far as to say he hopes Trump is successful because “we’re all on the same team.” No, BHO, we’re not all on the same team. You & Trump & Hillary and the entire Establishment, with the exception of a very rare few, are on the same team, but us Little People are the fucking ball that gets kicked and/or batted around. How dare you be so presumptively and condescendingly brazen. You do not speak for me, you fucking psyops. I have always seen you for what you have always been, and your reaction to Trump’s victory is yet more validation that my assessment of you has always been Spot On.

Without further adieu, here is Chris Suprun’s Op Ed, in its entirety, from The New York Times. I support you 100%, Chris, and I respect you for being a Man. Perhaps those who claim we need to rediscover Men can follow your example, but I kinda doubt it. FYI, for me at least, Man is synonymous with Hu Man, meaning it applies to everyone, not just males. Every person has an obligation to act nobly with dignity & honor & integrity. That process starts by rebuking the Misinformation being disseminated by The Mainstream Media. Stop lying to yourself. Challenge your World View. Disavow Ideology. Be objective, independent and critical. And maybe, just maybe, although I kinda doubt it, I can no longer claim It’s All Lies.

Why I Will Not Cast My Electoral Vote for Donald Trump

The New York Times

By CHRISTOPHER SUPRUN  Dec. 5, 2016

I am a Republican presidential elector, one of the 538 people asked to choose officially the president of the United States. Since the election, people have asked me to change my vote based on policy disagreements with Donald J. Trump. In some cases, they cite the popular vote difference. I do not think president-elects should be disqualified for policy disagreements. I do not think they should be disqualified because they won the Electoral College instead of the popular vote. However, now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is not qualified for the office.

Fifteen years ago, as a firefighter, I was part of the response to the Sept. 11 attacks against our nation. That attack and this year’s election may seem unrelated, but for me the relationship becomes clearer every day.

George W. Bush is an imperfect man, but he led us through the tragic days following the attacks. His leadership showed that America was a great nation. That was also the last time I remember the nation united. I watch Mr. Trump fail to unite America and drive a wedge between us.

Mr. Trump goes out of his way to attack the cast of “Saturday Night Live” for bias. He tweets day and night, but waited two days to offer sympathy to the Ohio State community after an attack there. He does not encourage civil discourse, but chooses to stoke fear and create outrage.

This is unacceptable. For me, America is that shining city on a hill that Ronald Reagan envisioned. It has problems. It has challenges. These can be met and overcome just as our nation overcame Sept. 11.

The United States was set up as a republic. Alexander Hamilton provided a blueprint for states’ votes. Federalist 68 argued that an Electoral College should determine if candidates are qualified, not engaged in demagogy, and independent from foreign influence. Mr. Trump shows us again and again that he does not meet these standards. Given his own public statements, it isn’t clear how the Electoral College can ignore these issues, and so it should reject him.

I have poured countless hours into serving the party of Lincoln and electing its candidates. I will pour many more into being more faithful to my party than some in its leadership. But I owe no debt to a party. I owe a debt to my children to leave them a nation they can trust.

Mr. Trump lacks the foreign policy experience and demeanor needed to be commander in chief. During the campaign more than 50 Republican former national security officials and foreign policy experts co-signed a letter opposing him. In their words, “he would be a dangerous president.” During the campaign Mr. Trump even said Russia should hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. This encouragement of an illegal act has troubled many members of Congress and troubles me.

Hamilton also reminded us that a president cannot be a demagogue. Mr. Trump urged violence against protesters at his rallies during the campaign. He speaks of retribution against his critics. He has surrounded himself with advisers such as Stephen K. Bannon, who claims to be a Leninist and lauds villains and their thirst for power, including Darth Vader. “Rogue One,” the latest “Star Wars” installment, arrives later this month. I am not taking my children to see it to celebrate evil, but to show them that light can overcome it.

Gen. Michael T. Flynn, Mr. Trump’s pick for national security adviser, has his own checkered past about rules. He installed a secret internet connection in his Pentagon office despite rules to the contrary. Sound familiar?

Finally, Mr. Trump does not understand that the Constitution expressly forbids a president to receive payments or gifts from foreign governments. We have reports that Mr. Trump’s organization has business dealings in Argentina, Bahrain, Taiwan and elsewhere. Mr. Trump could be impeached in his first year given his dismissive responses to financial conflicts of interest. He has played fast and loose with the law for years. He may have violated the Cuban embargo, and there are reports of improprieties involving his foundation and actions he took against minority tenants in New York. Mr. Trump still seems to think that pattern of behavior can continue.

The election of the next president is not yet a done deal. Electors of conscience can still do the right thing for the good of the country. Presidential electors have the legal right and a constitutional duty to vote their conscience. I believe electors should unify behind a Republican alternative, an honorable and qualified man or woman such as Gov. John Kasich of Ohio. I pray my fellow electors will do their job and join with me in discovering who that person should be.

Fifteen years ago, I swore an oath to defend my country and Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. On Dec. 19, I will do it again.

  1. Ummm… , no Jeff, Trump is the one who should be tried for Treason. Comey, unlock the documents that reveal the nexus between Trump & Putin via Manafort & Ukraine. The FBI knows, folks, and they’re keeping it under wraps. I don’t think there is such a thing as Treason when your Net Worth is measured in millions & billions.

  2. If you elect Cold N. Holefield POTUS in 2020, I promise to eviscerate all Alphabet Agencies including the FBI. They are Undemocratic Tyrannical Organizations that would make The Founders puke.

    https://news.vice.com/story/fbi-may-have-been-investigating-trump-when-comey-announced-new-clinton-emails

    Ten days after the election, the FBI responded to a longstanding VICE News Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, revealing that the bureau may very well have been investigating Donald Trump, too.

    In September, VICE News and Ryan Shapiro, a doctoral candidate at MIT and research affiliate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, filed the FOIA lawsuit against the FBI demanding documents connected to a pair of incendiary comments Trump made on the campaign trail over the summer. In July, he called upon Russia to track down “30,000 emails [from Hillary Clinton’s private email server] that are missing.” And at an August campaign rally in North Carolina, he made a statement that was widely interpreted as calling for the assassination of Clinton.

    We sought this information from the FBI after receiving a tip that the bureau, in addition to the Secret Service, was probing the incidents. We asked the FBI to grant us expedited processing because there was an urgent need to inform the public before they went to the polls on November 8.

    But the FBI refused to respond to our request before the election, instead dating it Nov. 18; we received it in the mail Nov. 28.

    “The nature of your request implicates investigative records the FBI may or may not compile pursuant to its broad criminal and national security investigative missions and functions,” said the bureau’s response, which is embedded at the end of this story. “Accordingly, the FBI cannot confirm or deny the existence of any such records about your subject as the mere acknowledgment of such records existence or nonexistence would in and of itself trigger foreseeable harm to agency interests.”

    This is what’s known as a Glomar response, a term that came into use after the CIA denied a reporter’s request in the 1970s for information about a CIA ship, the Glomar Explorer, designed to recover a sunken Russian submarine. The agency refused to either confirm or deny the ship’s existence.

    The FBI’s response states that any records the FBI has must be withheld because disclosure would interfere with enforcement proceedings and disclose information vital for effective investigations. This response is highly suspicious.

    ‘If the FBI is going to break from precedent, it cannot do so for one presidential candidate and not the other.’
    For one, it is extremely rare for the FBI to issue a Glomar. I’ve filed thousands of requests with the bureau and I cannot recall ever receiving a Glomar. Typically, when a FOIA requester seeks information from the FBI on anything the bureau might be investigating, the FBI has explicit authority to deny the request, citing a pending investigation. However, because using that exemption would itself confirm to a requester that there’s an ongoing probe, the FBI has the authority under the FOIA to essentially lie and say it doesn’t have any documents — even when it does.

    But the bureau did neither of those things. Instead, it said it could not confirm or deny that it has any documents concerning an investigation into Trump and/or his comments about Clinton.

    Had the FBI released this letter to us prior to the election, our subsequent story would have noted that Trump may be under investigation over his comments — and that no doubt would have attracted widespread media attention. The FBI may have been aware of this and chosen to delay disclosure until after Election Day.

    The fact that Comey revealed to the heads of eight congressional committees that FBI investigators located emails potentially pertinent to its probe of Clinton before Election Day is a potential double standard not lost on Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

    “It is extremely difficult to understand the FBI’s position,” he told VICE News. “On one hand, they are refusing to provide any information whatsoever in response to these FOIA requests relating to Donald Trump, yet at the height of the presidential campaign, the FBI director personally disclosed details about the investigative steps the FBI was taking with respect to Secretary Clinton — even though there was no finding of criminal activity. I have said repeatedly that if the FBI is going to break from longstanding precedent, it cannot do so for only one presidential candidate and not the other. I believe this approach has done great harm to the public’s trust in the FBI.”

    A spokesperson for Clinton did not respond to a request for comment.

    It’s unlikely the FBI launched a full-blown investigation into Trump’s comments. Instead, an agent likely raised it as an issue and opened a file that probably contains a few sheets of paper. But that itself would be newsworthy.

    Nate Jones, the director of the FOIA project at George Washington University’s National Security Archive, told VICE News the FBI’s response to our requests is troubling on a number of other fronts as well.

    “It appears clear that the FBI is placing its interest on not performing a FOIA review of the documents — or even stating if they exist — above the very large public interest in this case,” he said. “It’s another important example as to why agencies should not be given the ability to issue blanket ‘non-denial’ denials in response to FOIA requests…. Hopefully, in this case a judge will compel the FBI to do just this.”

    Jeffrey Light, the FOIA attorney handling our case, said VICE News will challenge the FBI’s response in court. But before we proceed, we need the Secret Service to respond to an identical FOIA request. The Secret Service had already stated publicly that it was looking into Trump’s comments about “Second Amendment people” and Clinton. But they’re now in an awkward position: It is their job to protect President-elect Trump.

  3. Here, per Wikipedia, are Alexander Hamilton’s thoughts & sentiments concerning The Electoral College. This is the justification The Hamilton Electors are using to deny Trump The Office of POTUS. It certainly makes you rethink The Electoral College as a heretofore archaic, irrelevant artifact of days gone by. It is now relevant again, if it ever was, and as important as ever as a potential vanguard against Fascism.

  4. Chris Suprun was on The Last Word hosted by Lawrence O’Donnell last night. O’Donnell was cordial but he was also dismissively patronizing as was his other guest from The Washington Post, E. J. Dionne. After they gave Suprun time to speak and explain himself, they then spoke amongst themselves about the absurdity of the notion — that it’s not possible even though O’Donnell agreed with Suprun that what he is doing is in line with the intent of The Electoral College as explained by Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 68. Dionne put The Final Nail in it by saying The House would vote for Trump anyway since The House of Representatives would be required to vote in a President should the Hamilton Electors prove successful in their effort to deny Trump.

    Obviously, what Hamilton & The Founders never foresaw was that The Electoral College is useless when an Establishment arises that is capable of subverting The Constitution at will. The Establishment, of which The Mainstream Media is a crucial component as well as The National Security State, has turned even the feigned notion of a Democratic Republic upside down and inside out all the while selling it as though it’s a Democratic Republic. When push comes to shove, the veneer is stripped off and we see that it’s anything but a Democratic Republic. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. It’s as Totalitarian as Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union, except America has a much better Marketing Department than either of those two, so it’s convinced Americans and The World it’s something it’s not.

    So there, here, we have it. The Establishment to include The Mainstream Media doesn’t give a wit about The Founders and their noble intentions to preserve The Republic. Any attempt to use The Electoral College as it was intended to be used at times like this will be thwarted by The Vested Interests of The Establishment. Ben Franklin said, “here’s your Republic if you can keep it.” The Oligarchs said, “fuck that…we don’t have time for that shit…who wants a Republic anyway?”

    So, the next time you hear some idiot, be it a Liberal or a Conservative, spout off that America’s a Democratic Republic and that is what The Flag, amongst other things, represents, laugh at them and tell them to shut the fuck up and wake the fuck up because they’re making a fool of themselves spouting obvious nonsense.
