SCOTUS

SCOTUS:

The Supreme Court Ruling that Corporations have the same rights to free speech as you and I has sent shock waves through politics and the population.  The issue of Corporate entities (Paper People) having the same rights as Biological entities (Natural Humans) strikes fear into the American heart.  The sole intent and purpose of the Corporate Individual is to produce a profit for those who own it and this kind of sociopathic / psychopathic behavior is long identified as an illness from birth coming to full expression by early teens.  That kind of says it all.

In the United States the US Citizen is now the Slave in Dread v Scott Supreme Court decision with the Corporate Communists as our masters.  Not only do we now face the psychopathic behavior of Corporations but they have free reign to spend as free speech within the political process thereby purchasing power through the political process and puts every American Citizen as a “Special  Class” worthy of protection as minorities protected within the USA today.

Buried within this screaming fear expressed by the United States Citizens in blogs and on talk radio and newspaper columns today is the xenophobic reality that foreign citizens often own more of American Corporations than Americans own. That reality is upon us today with Rupert Murdock owning Faux Nuz with his Saudi buddy.  The Tea Baggers love their Faux Nuz and that it’s a Republican right-wing mouthpiece is clearly recognized but do these “patriots” (and I use the term loosely) understand their reality?

From the Great Pam’sHouseBlend comes this piece from Snookey Ookums:

Despite yesterday’s ruling by the Supreme Court which states

“…this Court now concludes that independent expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption, or the appearance of corruption. That speakers may have influence over or access to elected officials does not mean that those officials are corrupt. And the appearance of influence and access will not cause the electorate to lose faith in this democracy.”

(Citizens United V FEC, Syllabus, P5 Para 2)

I would posit that such loss of faith has already occurred and is irreparable absent a Constitutional Amendment overturning this ruling.

In the revisionist historical view of the five affirming justices the robber barons of the late 19th Century were actually misunderstood Robin Hoods, the unregulated stock and banking system of the 1920’s had no causal relation whatsoever to the Great Depression.

And Teapot Dome, William Marcy “Boss” Tweed, James Michael Curly, Mayor Richard Daly, Huey Long, Rod “This seat for sale” Blagojovich, Budd Dwyer ($300,000 in quid pro quo bribes from a computer company for a $4M state contract – committed suicide by .357 at a televised press conference), Edwin Edwards ($400,000 in bribes to allow casinos in Louisiana), Spiro Agnew (took the final $17,500 in bribes while a sitting VP), James “I’ve got a marmoset on my head” Traficant (just released from federal prison and vowing to run for Congress again!), Randy “Duke” Cunningham (current Congressional record holder for biggest ‘take’ at $2.4M in bribes – with which he bought a Rolls Royce and a nice yacht), Ted “What hot tub?” Stevens, William “They’ll neverlook in the freezer.” Jefferson – all of these examples of corporate influence over the years – why they just didn’t happen.

Otherwise, their entire fallacious argument falls apart.”

God knows I love Pam’s House Blend and wish you all run by regularly to see what’s up in the real world.

Here’s a piece out of history from our now President Barack H Obama:

“I support public financing and will work to make it viable.”
. . .
“The decision not to participate in the public financing system wasn’t an easy one — especially because I support a robust system of public financing of elections.”
. . .
“I wholeheartedly agree with the idea that we need to limit the influence of big donors on campaigns, and I’ve co-sponsored legislation to fix the system — legislation Sen. McCain does not support. I AM FIRMLY COMMITTED TO REFORMING THE SYSTEM AS PRESIDENT, so that it’s viable in today’s campaign climate.”

— Barack Obama, press release, June 20, 2008


Does any American really think that the Purchased Politicians on Capital (yes I know the difference) Hill are going to enact any legislation to keep this cash cow from feeding their greed?  The website Opensecrets has devoted its existence to exposing exactly how each and every one of the people involved in United States politics has accepted cash from Corporate Communists and then look at the voting record of these crooks.

The American People have, thankfully, gotten a belly full of the corruption, greed and business-as-usual in Washington, DC through the process of attempting to “reform health care” and we see how this process was completely de-railed by backroom deals with the Pharmaceutical Companies, the Insurance Companies and all the special interest groups associated with them.

Look at the Banking and Wall Street manipulation of this government with George W Bush, Paulson, Bernanke and Geithner opening up the US Treasury to the biggest transfer of wealth from the US Taxpayers to the Corporate Communists in history.  That’s right, the American people just gave the wealthy top 1% of this population the contents of the US Treasury with the blessing and insistence of the FED who are a private banking cartel and just shared the funds among themselves. The Wall Street Bonuses are nothing. This was a demonstration of real Power and don’t ever forget it.


This is from Ron Paul speaking at Loyola in September 3rd of 2009.

I urge you to watch this 6-part video through.


America is Bankrupt.   George W Bush, the treasonous, lying, Faith-based previous President took a $236 billion dollar Federal Budget Surplus and ran up a deficit greater than all other Presidents COMBINED in his disastrous 8 year SCOTUS appointed rule.

George W Bush’s butt buddy, The Torturing Dick Cheney is a war criminal and both he and George W Bush deserve to be tried as the criminals that they are. These men and the 404 members of the Senate and Congress who voted for the “Patriot Act” are treasonous in that they swore an oath to uphold the United States Constitution and then worked diligently to destroy that.  The George Bush appointments to the Supreme Court have just punctuated that reality for all of us.

The painful reality is going to upon all of us too soon.

The repair of this is simple, straight forward and direct in the end of all the wars.

End the war on drugs.  This failed 30 year prohibition is insanity from the Reagan years and it is disgusting, deplorable and a complete waste of the US Citizen’s tax dollars.

End the illegal and immoral wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  George W Bush lied to create these wars and his foreign policy in the Middle East, his Faith-Based Presidency is the exact reason the attack on 9/11/01 happened and it’s a failed policy.

Bring all our troops home.  Why do we still have troops in Germany, Japan, Honduras, and scattered around the globe?

We have to re-think our foreign aid and stop the insanity of spending US Taxpayer dollars in Saudi Arabia, Israel, Africa where they want to “Kill the Gays” because the United States has exported it’s HATE from the Cults of Jesus.

The United States Government is the largest single employer in the nation.  It’s about time that 10% of the Government Employees are furloughed to reflect the reality of the reported unemployment and let the Government begin to feel the pain. Let’s start with the 10% of the Government that resides within Congress and the Senate who have sold all Americans out and demonstrated that they hold our Constitution in contempt.

There is no “too big to fail” and these bastards deserve the results of their actions if they do fail and let the free market correct.  This fraud perpetrated against the United States citizens by the purchased politicians has destroyed the dollar, destroyed any public faith and confidence in the government and it is unsustainable.

Since Richard Nixon’s administration turned the United States Dollar into a Fiat Currency we are all living on borrowed time.

The Government in 1983 increased the Social Security Tax to insure that Baby Boomers not only paid their own Social Security benefits in advance but that they paid for others on the system currently because the Purchased Politicians were decrying the lack of solvency of the system.   How did the Purchased Politicians demonstrate that they are really concerned about the American Taxpayers?  The American Politicians since Reagan have used the Social Security Trust Fund as a piggy bank to fund their failed policies and the only thing that exists today is an empty piggy bank stuffed full of IOUs from a government that continues to steal from us, lie to us and do as it damned well pleases.

The United States Citizens are due a Balance Budget Constitutional Amendment and make these Purchased Politicians understand what fiscal responsibility is all about.

Destroy the FED.  This private banking cartel has no business being in the United States economy.  It is the FED that has manipulated the economy, created The Great Depression, the Recessions, the economic bubbles in housing and manufacturing and the frauds of wars that drives their profits.

Americans have no risk to their liberties in establishing a National Bank to hold the tax dollars that we agree to pay and to disburse the payments we authorize. Why do we have the FED counterfeiting dollars now to the point where the real value of the US Dollar is only $.04 compared to the $1.00 backed by Gold and Silver Reserves that existed when the FED took over?

Americans have no risk of Liberty if they establish a national insurance program run without the 30% profit paid to the Fat Cat private sector that insurance companies steal off the top of every premium dollar paid while denying your claims.

Americans have no risk of Liberty if our government focuses on the safety and security within United States borders.  Police to pursue violent crimes, fire departments, and limited social welfare programs as required.

Americans have no risk of loss of Liberty if we provide universal education and universal opportunity.

The biggest risk to the loss of Liberty today is the Government as structured today and we must take the power, we must make the changes and we must, once again, become responsible for our selves, our families, our communities and our society.  We don’t need this vile monster of purchased politicians dictating to us as their Corporate Communist masters dictate to them.

On a real Civil Level watch this video as reported by the Huffington Post and understand clearly that this is what is waiting for you in the United States as this corporate government gains more and more power.  This may be New York’s finest but you can bet your bottom dollar that this is endemic in the para-military police throughout the USA today and it’s not getting any better.

Wake up America!

Thomas Jefferson: “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

    These clips from George Carlin, Keith Olbermann and Ron Paul are an effective trifecta of commentary. They’re very powerful wake-up calls to political perspective, and I enjoyed them immensely. I also appreciate your own work and effort on a daily basis in sounding the clarion about political injustices, infractions and threats. It’s very frightening in this age to see our society’s concerns for liberty so flagrantly abandoned, human rights so caustically denied and justice so brutally distorted. Sometimes the degree of hope necessary to conceive a better future seems irrational in light of the vast amount of change required those who refuse to yield. I take heart in the words of Lao Tzu: “Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful.”

      Thanks for the kind words. Doing what is best in adhering to the Buddhist right thinking, right speech and right action takes gargantuan efforts at the times like these when confronted with what seems an incessant barrage of hate and fear. I hope with humor, accuracy and truth we are able to overcome and I watch the Perry v Schwarzenegger updates on the Courage Campaign hourly from lunch forward. This Civil Rights Battle must be won if we are all to be free. I’ve only been moved to blog since August of last year and am learning slowly but surely that keeping to the high road makes most things right.
