Vince Vaughn’s Words of Wisdom. Featuring Ron Paul & Truth in Media

“Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality,”

Quote of the Day

“They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening. By lack of understanding they remained sane. They simply swallowed everything, and what they swallowed did them no harm, because it left no residue behind, just as a grain of corn will pass undigested through the body of a bird.”

1984 -George Orwell

Quote of the Day

“In regard to propaganda the early advocates of universal literacy and a free press envisaged only two possibilities: the propaganda might be true, or the propaganda might be false. They did not foresee what in fact has happened, above all in our Western capitalist democracies – the development of a vast mass communications industry, concerned in the main neither with the true nor the false, but with the unreal, the more or less totally irrelevant. In a word, they failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.
In the past most people never got a chance of fully satisfying this appetite. They might long for distractions, but the distractions were not provided. Christmas came but once a year, feasts were “solemn and rare,” there were few readers and very little to read, and the nearest approach to a neighborhood movie theater was the parish church, where the performances though frequent, were somewhat monotonous. For conditions even remotely comparable to those now prevailing we must return to imperial Rome, where the populace was kept in good humor by frequent, gratuitous doses of many kinds of entertainment – from poetical dramas to gladiatorial fights, from recitations of Virgil to all-out boxing, from concerts to military reviews and public executions. But even in Rome there was nothing like the non-stop distractions now provided by newspapers and magazines, by radio, television and the cinema. In “Brave New World” non-stop distractions of the most fascinating nature are deliberately used as instruments of policy, for the purpose of preventing people from paying too much attention to the realities of the social and political situation. The other world of religion is different from the other world of entertainment; but they resemble one another in being most decidedly “not of this world.” Both are distractions and, if lived in too continuously, both can become, in Marx’s phrase “the opium of the people” and so a threat to freedom. Only the vigilant can maintain their liberties, and only those who are constantly and intelligently on the spot can hope to govern themselves effectively by democratic procedures. A society, most of whose members spend a great part of their time, not on the spot, not here and now and in their calculable future, but somewhere else, in the irrelevant other worlds of sport and soap opera, of mythology and metaphysical fantasy, will find it hard to resist the encroachments of those would manipulate and control it.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited

Rothschild Part 1

I know it’s the holiday season, and you have more pleasant things to do than listen to this shit. So I’ll try to keep it short & sweet.

This documentary is very informative. I highly recommend you watching it, even if you have to break it up into parts. Anyway, I have included a few things I found interesting.

1815– Nathan Rothschild used his insider information regarding the defeat of Napoleon at The Battle of Waterloo to start a panic by informing his workers to start selling British bonds. This led led other traders to believe Britain had lost. When the panic culminated, he bought BACK the bonds at a fraction of the price.

By the mid 1800’s the Rothschilds were indisputably the wealthiest family in Europe

“Revolutions are generally triggered of by deficiency of money. By preventing such deficiencies, the Rothschild sustem may serve to preserve peace in Europe.”

“This system or rather Nathan Rothschild, its inventor still providing firm foundations for such peace. It does not inhibit one state from making war on another exactly as before, but it does make it difficult for the people to overthrow established authority.”

“Religions is no longer able to guarantee the governments that the people will remain peaceful. The Rothschild system of loans can perform the task much better…It possesses the moral force or power which religion has lost. It can act as a surrogate for religion.”

“Indeed it IS a new religion and when the old religion finally goes under, it will provide substitutes for its practical blessings. Strangely it is once again the Jews who invented this new religion.”

–  Heinrich Hein.  German Poet

Shit-damn.

tsk tsk tsk…

NYPD managed to score $137.2 million in lawsuits. Last year 9,502 New York City residents filed complaints against the department, that is an average of 10 per day.

Peter Valentin, a very dedicated cop, racked up almost $1.3 million in SETTLEMENTS.  Well, to be fair when you work 3 1/2 months over-time, you might overlook some rules too. In 2013 he received $126,000 for his purposeful disregard for the constitution.

With an eerie semblance to the Stephen Woods catastrophe China executed a 18 year old male for a rape/murder that he did not commit. It was only overturned due to a  miraculous CONFESSION by a completely overlooked party. Of course, this kind of thing happens all the time.No big deal. China boasts an almost 100% conviction rate, leading to 2,400 people being executed in 2013. In 1989, one man was killed for supposedly killing a woman who wasn’t even dead. The woman turned up in her village a few years later, saying she had been kidnapped.

China rules Hong Kong apparently. Haven’t figured out why yet…

The health care industry is booming! Yay! Due to this Obama Care wonderfulness, the hospitals are getting more money. They keep their rates high and more patients are insured. Well, it takes time for the rates to go down…lots of paperwork I’m sure. Meanwhile, the premium on a family health plan has risen 73% in the last decade. The worker’s portion has risen 93%. And the average spent on a family health plan (both the employer and worker portion) is $16,834

Belgium shut down its transportation today for 24 hours. Due to $13.8 billion in cuts. The [welfare state] government is planning to raise the retirement age, cancel the wage rise needed to compensate for inflation, in addition to cutting health and social security benefits. Who needs those?

In even better news, Spain’s Congress passes anti protest law, effectively abrogating democracy. It will now go to Senate, where it’s expected to pass with flying colors. You are not allowed to take pictures of police, protest peacefully, climb any monuments or buildings without permission, I could go on and on. Here is a link to a site that itemizes what is prohibited.

Last, but not least Kim Jong-Un is not happy about his head being blown up in The Interview, or so I’m assuming, since he declared the 40 million dollar budged Sony movie an act of war. Who would have thought he had no sense of humor.

Till next time.

Quote of the Day

noam

“From my personal experience there are two countries in which my political writings can basically not appear. One is the U.S. within the mainstream with very rare exceptions. The other is the USSR..I think what we ought to do is to try to understand the truth about the world. And the truth about the world is usually quite unpleasant. My own concern is primarily the terror and violence carried out by my own state, for two reasons. For one thing, because it happens to be the larger component of international violence. But also for a much more important reason than that; namely, I can do something about it. So even if the U.S. was responsible for 2 percent of the violence in the world instead of the majority of it, it would be that 2 percent I would be primarily responsible for. And that is a simple ethical judgment. That is, the ethical value of one’s actions depends on their anticipated and predictable consequences. It is very easy to denounce the atrocities of someone else. That has about as much ethical value as denouncing atrocities that took place in the 18th century.

The point is that the useful and significant political actions are those that have consequences for human beings. And those are overwhelmingly the actions which you have some way of influencing and controlling, which mean for me, American actions. But I am also involved in protesting Soviet imperialism, and also explaining its roots in Soviet society. And I think that anyone in the Third World would be making a grave error if they succumbed to illusions about these matters.[13]
