Dark Matter Proves Quantum Mechanics Wrong, SQPR Right

June 29, 2020

We live in barbarian times when oligarchs block intelligent discourse to the masses. As in the past, even intelligent physics gets blocked. The NYT has 6 million subscribers (including me, and blocked the following comment to an article on the foundations of Quantum Mechanics)

What if the proof of SQPR (Sub Quantum Physical Reality) was already cosmically in full sight? Let me explain. Each Quantum process comes with a (Hilbert) space. Within it, the wave one computes probability with, the Quantum Wave, evolves with time as a one parameter group. Time is not treated like space [1]. The Quantum Wave collapses suddenly, all over, when a probability is extracted from it. Multiverse theory claims that each outcome is its own universe (that means zillions of universes inside a proton). A potential way out is instead to assign a reality to the Quantum Wave. That means attributing to the QW some mass-energy (however minute), wherever it is to be found, and an objective collapse propagation speed to the QW (it has to be greater than 10^23 c).

Rotation of curve of Spiral galaxy Messier 33 (Triangulum, the third largest galaxy of the local group after Andromeda and the Milky Way). The galaxy rotates as if it were an increasingly denser plate the more one gets away from the center…

The full SQPR is nonlocal (in the sense of that experimentally demonstrated superluminal entanglement). An immediate consequence of this picture is that, in some large geometrical situation, a mass-energy residue will form …which will behave exactly like Dark Matter; so Dark Matter would be a proof of the objective collapse theories! The difference between this and the De Broglie guiding wave theories is that the assignment of (minute) mass energy to the guiding linear wave… and making the “particle” into the central nonlinear part of the QW. 

We need a SQPR (Sub Quantum Physical Reality). Yale’s Devoret and Minev found that some Quantum Jumps are preceded by a preparation phase which can be reversed, thus demonstrating SQPR [2].

Probably checking out with Harvard, Columbia and Princeton, all plutocratic universities, to see if somebody there can get the Nobel for the idea, instead of yours truly.

[1] Time and space are not treated the same in Relativity either (their signature is different). However, in Quantum Mechanical formalism, the situation is worse; time is a one parameter group, not at all like space…

When White Is Called Black, Anything Goes… And Rationality Is the First Thing to Go.

June 26, 2020

Races, racism, and the way to describe them: “black”, “negro”, “colored”, “red skin”, “whites”, are all US racist constructs. So is the “one drop rule” behind it all. To use them is to become oneself racist, just as using Nazi semantics about Aryans, non-Aryans, Jews, half-breeds to talk “races” without decrying them stridently, is to become oneself somewhat of a Nazi. This is the first paradox of all too much vociferously noisy antiracism, as it presently stand: it is itself racist. 

Excess brings its own destruction: Nazism, for example, by going insane into its “defense” of the white German “race” helped bring its own replacement by what it had proclaimed to detest (ten million white Germans died in WW2, and often the most “Aryan” of them all, thanks to Hitler and company… and those ten million have been more than replaced by millions of… colored immigrants; so the white race obsession of the Nazis brought a considerable darkening of average German skin color, the exact opposite of what they wanted!)

Using skin color to classify people, whether they have it, or not, is beyond the pale. It’s an outrageous social construct based on a discrimination which literally paints “black”, in the racists’ mind eyes, people whose characteristic is to have a drop of recent Sub Saharan African genetics. That “one drop rule” is straight racism of the most outrageous type, because that one drop is supposed to make people into a different “race”… thus affirming the purity of the “white race”… which becomes, by definition the one untouched by that (apparently infinitely) black drop of recent African genetics.  

Col. Hans Christian Heg, who immigrated to the United States from Norway, became a newspaper editor and an outspoken member of the anti-slavery Free Soil Party. When the Civil War broke out, he was chosen to lead a regiment from Wisconsin.
The statue of Heg, an anti-slavery activist who fought and died for the Union during the U.S. Civil War, was decapitated and thrown into a Madison lake. Mob rule has no rule but blind rage.

Right now it’s trendy among “whites” to embrace “Black”. Talk is cheap, embrace not too intimate with all the COVID around. Wishful talk will not change the reality of tax and power structures which determine who rules. 

Racism is, fundamentally, a denial of reality, and, first of all, the reality of the one and only human race. Calling “Black” individuals whose skin is not even black is a blatant way to deny the importance of reality, in this case, paradoxically, the reality of color as wavelength, and brandishing the importance of racial prejudice, and making it sacrosanct. The more the obsession with “Black”, the less the grasp on reality.

The less the grasp on reality, the more one is ready to confuse “millions” and “thousands” (as Joe Biden is prone to do). We have seen that movie before: in the Fourth Century, Roman emperors imposed “Orthodox Catholicism”… and reality became a distant memory, submerged by barbarian invasions, and the love of getting slapped on the other cheek.

To Deconstruct Racism, One Needs To Deconstruct General Semantics, Reconstruct History

June 25, 2020

Look at those clowns going around, decrying “racism”, and all they do, is talk, obsessively, about skin color? Think Rwanda, before and during its genocide, and people obsessing about “Tutsi Lives Matter”, or “Hutu Lives Matter”. Well what was the lively matter with deadly consequences in Rwanda was the very concept of “Tutsi” and “Hutu”. Contemporary Rwanda constitution outlaws this sort of obsessive racism. The ignorant should be taught that there is no good racism [1]. 

Lots of people go around, and talk of “racism”, and condemn it, without even understanding that they are themselves racist in their behavior, ways and feelings. I am genuinely non-racist, and I find it horrifying that people who condemn others for racism are themselves racist, and want us to join them in using racism to fight racism. Why am I non-racist? I have, partly by choice, a family with origin in three regions: Europe, Africa, Philippines. I always found attractive, interesting and human people from all over the world.

See the problem? White/Black Lives Matter to white/black racists

I was educated in Africa. The first thing one learns in Subsaharan Africa is NOT to mention the color of the skin of people: that is viewed as racist. My mom told this to me when I was five. So the very expression “Black Lives Matter” would be viewed as a racist no-no in Africa. All lives matter. Subsaharan Africa has people with skin as dark as charcoal (say Wolof), when a native population a few miles away (say Peul) can be beige color. 

US “blacks” are sometimes endowed with pink skin, blonde hair, and green eyes. They are “black” only in the racist eye. I have a friend who is an attorney in Oakland, California, who is like that; one has to look at her very carefully to realize she may have some African ancestry, from her somewhat kinky blonde hair; her whole family is like that… but that family is viewed as “black”… according to the racist “one drop rule” (perversely embraced by most US non-whites). In Africa, people would guess, but won’t mention, a Norwegian origin, when faced with someone with striking green eyes, blonde hair, pink skin. But not in the US, where genealogy is everything. 

In the US, “black” is a concept so dark, it can’t be erased with the simple trick of looking like a Norwegian. One of the three (I think) “black” US Senators has striking blue eyes: never mind his eyes, he is “black”.

So, right, US racist behaviors have to be stopped. But the worst ones are in plain sight, and no one sees them. The very idea of “Black Lives Matter” is a plutocratic plot… As if it were a question, something non-obvious. 

The police is another matter entirely: it is hyper violent, in part because it is in a society with hundreds of millions of guns. I was personally threatened with my life by police for no reason whatsoever, more than once, except being at the wrong place… because officers feel citizens are keen to kill them… so being ready to shoot them first is the essence of survival. 

The destruction of statues illustrates splendidly the failure of the educational system: in the name of anti-racism, anti-racists’ statues have been destroyed. Instead, the solution with statues is to transform them into history lessons with copious explanations below and around them.

Want to learn from history? Here is the first lesson: history is very complicated.

That simplest of all historical lessons has not been taught to the last few generations. So we have a new class of puritans arising. Claiming all we need is “moral clarity”. Let’s take care of Black Lives, they say. And who kills the “Black Lives”? Well, other “Black Lives” in 90% of the cases. Yes, it’s a question of education and opportunities, and not having guns and drugs around. But on these subjects, much of the hysterical pseudo-left “Black Lives Matter” types are consummate hypocrites, because their speciality is precisely to blend within the majority (besides living in their own communities). 

The majority, all the way to Bernie Sanders, is pro-guns, pro-system, pro-non essential work, anti-performing public education. And the proof of this is that they probably never found themselves in a potentially lethal situation with the police… Because they are part of the system, it is their police, from where they live, how they appear to be, how they look around, etc. As I alluded to, above, very discreetly, I found myself, quite a few times, targeted by such white people, complete with usage of the police (!)… and, right, it was racism. But so what? Accusing such people of racism is 100% counter-productive: they don’t have the notion that their hearts, which are so pure, could be in doubt. They are such expert liars, in part because they are their first audience, and they believe themselves.

So the way out is not by destroying the existence of history. Multiply the statues, and explain. But one can’t explain to the only inferior race which really matters: that of brutes filled up to the rim with hatred.

[1] It does not mean that I am against laws considering “race” (which doesn’t exist), to momentarily compensate for under-representation. However, the fact is, those laws didn’t work too well, and that is why California removed them (after the US Supreme Court found some of them unlawful). Now California wants to re-establish them. But, if they didn’t work before, why would they work tomorrow?

P/S: Semantics (from Greek semantikos, meaning significant; The word semantics was first used by Michel Bréal, a French philologist) is the field of the study of sense, signification and meaning. It touches to everything, including the most esoteric logic (Tarsky) and computer science. It makes no sense to condemn racism, and embrace it. But making no sense itself has sense; after all, Hitler and company condemn the oppression of minorities, that was central to their electoral platform, and this enabled them to hide it. Here, similarly, the fact one has a violently plutocratic society is hidden by the non-sense that this is a racist society. As I explained, Chauvin didn’t look racist (partnering with non-white, married to non-white, etc.)

FREE WILL NEEDS The QUANTUM, To CREATE ORDER OUT OF CHAOS

June 21, 2020

Abstract: Quantum Physics generates both order and chaos . Quantum Physics is NECESSARY, and sufficient, to generate Free Will (this is a new argument). Reciprocally, we can will the will we want, to some extent, by setting up new Quantum Hilbert spaces inside our minds, according to our will to will whatever we will (new argument too). These new arguments roll both over the dishonest multiverse and traditional lusty, weak willed philosophers such as Schopenhauer.

***

Wherever we look at the universe, we see order. For example galactic clusters and white granite splashed by spectacularly blue azurite at the foot of K2, the second tallest mountain on Earth. Yet, (standard) cosmologists claim it all started with chaos. Life is also exquisitely ordered: look at a Scorpion Fish, it’s ready to kill any adversary. Yet its ancestor is supposedly molecular chaos.

At some point, say around 1800 CE, some colossally naive scientists thought enough physics was known to predict everything. (A few years later, between the rise of evolution theory of Lamarck and Cuvier, and the resurfacing of the wave theory of light, and the evidence of the electric and magnetic forces, that naivety discreetly dissipated…) 

Those silly physicists had discovered the following. Given a simple second order differential equation, F = ma, and appropriate initial conditions, one could predict the evolution of some system perfectly, if one supposed it was submitted to just one force, gravity.  Some saw in this physics illustrating the problem of “grace” as in the Christian religion: perfect predestination. 

Henri Poincaré showed that mechanical determinism failed if one considered more than two bodies. In the 1880s, while studying the three-body problem, Henri found that there can be orbits that are nonperiodic, and yet not forever increasing nor approaching a fixed point. And then two other forces (weak and strong) were discovered, and bodies also disappeared, becoming “fields”.

In a fundamentally similar fashion, it has been found that “Three neurons, Free Will“. Moreover, as a single neuron is made of many semi-independent entities, it’s likely that this single neuron itself exhibits what looks like “Free Will”, or, at least, unpredictability.

Quantum Uncertainty makes the detailed evolution of the universe unpredictable: maybe one can predict that strings of super clusters of galaxies will be created, but the quantum molecular chemistry in the brain is unknowable and unpredictable, even if it were known at some point [multiversalism is a infinitely silly theory designed specifically to save determinism in spite of the Quantum; 1]. 

Even if the initial conditions of a Quantum System are fully known, its evolution is unpredictable (see 2-slit). Yet, run through enough times, it generates obvious order! See 2-slit again! Run once, it also generates order, just, it’s less obvious.

Ligand-gated ion channel function. This is how messenger molecules control physical outcomes inside the cell. From Membrane Receptors. My point is that the molecular environment can be changed, at will… And said will is deterministically isolated, to a great extent, thanks to Quantum Uncertainty, a fundamental consequence of the wave nature of reality.

This way we can steer free will, by setting up the nature of the Quantum system. Indeed, we can order around the Quantum ordering mechanisms! We can decide to set-up a 2-slit, or not. We want to will what we want to will, and we can make it so (this is confirmed by the entire story of civilizational progress, and this is the secret of why it happened, even if some hypocrites doubt it ever did) .

Quantum Physics gives Quantum Systems the all-knowing ability to select optimal solutions: an electron will for example find the one and only way to sneak through a potential barrier (as with the chlorophyll molecule). Thus Quantum Systems act in a micro-divine way (this is the deepest secret Quantum). Nobody knows how this works, but it’s a fact (and it’s nonlocal!) For example, entanglement makes it so that a measurement in one locale corresponds to the one then made at a (potentially arbitrarily large) distance (found long after the fact; this has been checked experimentally). 

This magical all-knowing Quantum physics brings the ability to generate large scale order (already obvious in the simplest Quantum Systems, such as the 2-slit), including in biology. Psychological inversion, by setting up the Hilbert Spaces in which Quantum Physics happens, is all we need to go back from those micro-divine Quantum acts to butterflies flapping their wings, causing hurricanes. 

***

Let’s be more specific: a monk (say) in Tibet could learn to control (some of) his neurohormones, and thus set-up different Quantum Hilbert Spaces in his brain. This is basically what all specifically trained brains achieve (for example growing their hippocampus). This way consciousness can down-influence Quantum events by changing its ways. 

Any serious, out-of-the-ordinary experience, will change the brain environment, including at the Quantum level, be it only by changing much of the molecular environment. So, by consciously engaging in such brain change, we can change the Quantum Physics in the brain (and often get somewhat predictable effects!)

Ultra-Determinists will object that one’s psychology, my alleged partly free agent, is not really free, but fully predetermined… But there is no full-predetermination, because of Quantum local uncertainty [2]

***

OK, let’s dare to flap our wings a bit more. Quantum Physics computes with waves, which use, per their nature, arithmetic advanced enough to be subject to the Incompleteness Theorems of metamathematical logic. In other words, choices are being made, continuously, as required by the Godel Incompleteness construction… Choices correspond to Quantum Collapses (aka “Decoherence”) Are these Quantum events qualia?

Final point: even if one had some sort of Sub Quantum Physics Reality, it would have to be nonlocal… thus non-locally predictable. But, once again, we can consciously organize this whole order-generating casino. So we are on the borderline between free to will the will, and having to suffer the consequences.

***

And now, to change my brain’s molecular Quantum Environment, I will go do a hard run in the wild woods, among cliffs, snakes, poison plants, and searing heat… The brutish, but very effective way, to enforced wisdom, and advanced Quantum plenitude…

[1] The Multiverse was created to save micro determinism in the cheapest way: each time something happens, claim the other thing happened too… In another universe. Thus the general Quantum Process generates an infinity of universes, and, at the smallest nanometer scale an uncountable number of universes would be generated at any picosecond… This is of course ridiculous, as much less grotesque avenues (De Broglie-Bohm, SQPR, Quantum Trajectories) are disponible to understand Quantum Physics by explaining “collapse”.

***

[2] Multiversists are careful to avoid the question of entanglement at-a-distance… Because it denies local determinism (from their point of view). Unfortunately for them, the experience of entanglement at a distance has been run without human choice, by letting choices be made by distant light fluctuations… 

***

P/S1: The awareness argument can be inverted to “prove” (make plausible) the existence of nonlocal Sub Quantum theories, namely, SQPR, De Broglie-Bohm, Quantum Trajectories… See:

P/S2: The essay above was partly inspired by an excellent article of Mr. Ellis:

But the arguments used by yours truly are much more direct (for example I am not afraid of Quantum Uncertainty; Ellis avoids it, because he says he is scared of the multiversists, who dominate physics presently, and deny uncertainty… Silly ones…)

War Criminal Susan Rice For VP? Perfect Match With Iraq Invading Biden!

June 15, 2020

This is just a note for the future, I want my conscience clear. Let it not be said I didn’t scream in time. “Biden” has been considering a possible Vice President, in particular Senators Warren and Harris, both certified liars… But it’s hard to be in elected politics at a high level, and not be a liar. 

Susan Rice, though, is a completely different bird. She always circulated in the highest spheres of the plutocracy, per her right of birth. She represents the Deep Plutocratic State at its ugliest, and most criminal. She is the daughter of her dad, who sat on the Federal Reserve. Never elected, she made friends with all the possible African dictators she could find, who probably filled up her pockets or that of devices she had interest in. She invested millions in companies building pipelines which the Obama administration was supposedly opposed to… but made it so that those pipelines ultimately got built (some of the last screws may have been tightened under the Trump administration, enabling fake denial).

Rice Susan You Don't Like Plutocracy. Too Bad, That's What All You have, Coackroach

Here is the New York Times, plutocratic paper per excellence, and thus not susceptible of being anti-Rice, Rice being a trusted undertaker of plutocracy: 

U.N. Ambassador Questioned on U.S. Role in Congo Violence, By Helene Cooper. Dec. 9, 2012.

WASHINGTON — Almost two decades after the Clinton administration failed to intervene in the genocide in Rwanda, the United States is coming under harsh criticism for not moving forcefully in another African crisis marked by atrocities and brutal killings, this time in Rwanda’s neighbor, the Democratic Republic of Congo.

While President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton have taken some of the blame, critics of the Obama administration’s Africa policy have focused on the role of Susan E. Rice, the United States ambassador to the United Nations and a leading contender to succeed Mrs. Clinton, in the administration’s failure to take action against the country they see as a major cause of the Congolese crisis, Rwanda.

Specifically, these critics — who include officials of human rights organizations and United Nations diplomats — say the administration has not put enough pressure on Rwanda’s president, Paul Kagame, to end his support for the rebel movement whose recent capture of the strategic city of Goma in Congo set off a national crisis in a country that has already lost more than three million people in more than a decade of fighting. Rwanda’s support is seen as vital to the rebel group, known as M23.

Support for Mr. Kagame and the Rwandan government has been a matter of American foreign policy since he led the Tutsi-dominated Rwandan Patriotic Front to victory over the incumbent government in July 1994, effectively ending the Rwandan genocide. But according to rights organizations and diplomats at the United Nations, Ms. Rice has been at the forefront of trying to shield the Rwandan government, and Mr. Kagame in particular, from international censure, even as several United Nations reports have laid the blame for the violence in Congo at Mr. Kagame’s door.

A senior administration official said Saturday that Ms. Rice was not freelancing, and that the American policy toward Rwanda and Congo was to work with all the countries in the area for a negotiated settlement to the conflict.

Aides to Ms. Rice acknowledge that she is close to Mr. Kagame and that Mr. Kagame’s government was her client when she worked at Intellibridge, a strategic analysis firm in Washington. Ms. Rice, who served as the State Department’s top African affairs expert in the Clinton administration, worked at the firm with several other former Clinton administration officials, including David J. Rothkopf, who was an acting under secretary in the Commerce Department; Anthony Lake, Mr. Clinton’s national security adviser; and John M. Deutch, who was director of the Central Intelligence Agency.”

Why should a top US official being ‘close” to the dictator of Rwanda, and notorious mass murderer?Because being “close” to such dictators is Ms. Rice’s job, that’s what she did, throughout Africa.

Wars in East Congo killed more than five million people. They were useful wars. They fed Coltan, Cobalt and other precious minerals to the US dominated high tech industries (such as Apple, Inc.). All along Kagame was a US pawn, transforming a sleepy French speaking backwaters into a conflict ridden, US dominated English speaking let’s eliminate-whoever-is-in-the-way-of-profits kill zone. The notorious Rwanda civil war started in the 1950s, when the Tutsi monarchy was overthrown by a Hutu led Republic. US special ops then financed an army, the Rwandan Popular Front. War started with the RPF invading north-eastern Rwanda, advancing 60 km (37 mi) into the country in 1990. It suffered a major setback when its leader Rwigyema was killed in action on the second day. The Republican Rwandan Army, assisted by troops from France, gained the upper hand and the RPF were largely defeated by the end of October. Kagame, who had been in the United States during the invasion, returned to take command.

***

On the evening of 6 April 1994, the airplane carrying Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana and Burundian president Cyprien Ntaryamira, both Hutu, was shot down with surface-to-air missiles as it prepared to land in Kigali, capital of Rwanda. Since 2018, we know for sure these missiles came from Uganda (that is from Rice’s friend Kagame), not Rwanda…

The French anti-terrorist magistrate Jean-Louis Bruguière opened an investigation into the shootdown on behalf of the families of the French aircraft crew. On the basis of hundreds of interviews, Bruguière concluded that the assassination had been carried out on the orders of Paul Kagame, and issued arrest warrants against nine of Kagame’s aides in 2006. One of them was arrested by the German government. The Rwandan dictatorship then broke off relations with France. 

In February 2008, a 182-page indictment and international arrest warrants were issued against 40 current or former high-ranking Rwandan military officials of the Rwandan Patriotic Army/Rwandan Defence Forces by the Spanish Investigative Judge Fernando Andreu of the Audiencia Nacional. They were charged with a number of serious crimes between 1990 and 2002, including the shootdown of Habyarimana’s plane.

***

As dirty as it gets:

In her memoir, Tough Love, Rice disinforms the UN’s decision to abandon Rwanda as the Belgians’: “Once their peacekeepers were slaughtered,” she writes, “the Belgians decided to withdraw their battalion…they appealed to the US, as a NATO ally to back their decision.” 

But Belgian descriptions of what happened suggest the decision to pull out was primarily Washington’s.  The evening after the shooting down of the presidential plane, Belgian army Chief of Staff Jose Charlier told Luc Marchal, the most senior Belgian officer in Rwanda, that Belgium was planning to ask the UN Security Council to reinforce the mission with additional troops and supplies.  In his chilling memoir Shake Hands with the Devil, Canadian general Romeo Dallaire who oversaw the entire UN mission in Rwanda wrote, “If we were given a new mandate and the necessary force, we might be able to get the two parties [that is the Rwandan government and Kagame’s rebellious Rwandan Patriotic Front] back to the negotiating table.”

But six days later, Marchal was informed that the entire Belgian contingent was to be withdrawn. With the Belgians fleeing, there was little appetite for continued intervention and other countries withdrew their contingents too, and the world looked on as the genocide unfolded.

What brought the Belgian change of heart?  Sources within the peacekeeping force indicate that in the days after the plane crash, Belgian ambassador to the UN, Paul Noterdaeme, met with his US counterpart Madeleine Albright, who indicated there would be no larger force, giving Belgium little choice but to withdraw its troops.

President Bill Clinton has apologized for this disastrous decision. Superficially, the fatal decision was Albright’s and Clinton’s, not Rice’s; but as director for international organizations and peacekeeping at the National Security Council, Rice would, at the least, have been influential… as a specialist in African studies—having completed a PhD in the subject.Rice took time out from government during George W. Bush’s presidency to work as a publicist for Paul Kagame, the ruthless dictator who seized power in Rwanda after the genocide, and she has also big time friendly with Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni, and Ethiopia’s Meles Zenawi.  

When Kagame and fellow dictator and backer Ugandan Yoweri Museveni invaded Congo in 1996, and again in 1998, launching conflicts that cost millions of lives, Rice denied that the US gave them the greenlight. That is all impossible. Independent scholars who’ve studied the matter, including Philip Roessler and Harry Verhoeven, suggest she organized all these wars.  

This is a case like World War One and World War Two: who, what profited from the wars?… The usual suspects: US plutocrats. 

As Black Stars news put it:

SUSAN RICE, A SUPPORTER AND ENABLER OF TYRANNY IN AFRICA SHOULDN’T BE BIDEN’S RUNNING MATE:

“In 2012, a group of UN investigators reported that both Kagame and Museveni were backing a brutal rebel group called M23, that was wreaking further havoc in Congo. Rice, now US ambassador to the UN tried to suppress the report. Then, in 2014, she greenlighted Uganda’s intervention in South Sudan, which greatly prolonged that conflict too.  In 2015, she stood in the way of a Security Council effort to place sanctions on South Sudan’s leaders which might have helped bring them to negotiating table, sparing that country years of war.

When confronted with the evidence of Uganda and Rwanda’s support for M23 (and up to M24… M27…), Rice reportedly said, it didn’t matter if Uganda and Rwanda were supporting brutal militias in Congo, because if they weren’t, “some other group” would do the same. 

The plight of Africa’s people seldom receives much public attention. This is not because the region doesn’t have enormous strategic significance; after all, it is where most of the minerals—from coltan to lithium-that go into the devices that power the global economy come from. It is because of such casually racist attitudes as this.”

***

Clearly, the spirit, if not the hand, of Susan Rice and certainly of the immense resources of that of her immensely wealthy and powerful mentors, were behind all this. Everybody using a smartphone would be smart, according to cynics, to thank Rice.   

So what happened to California Senator Kamala Harris? My preferred liar? Harris is a tough ex-prosecutor. She would be harder to control than Susan Rice. Susan Rice not only knows where the bodies are buried, but the powers that be know she knows that they know all her past dirty dealings (as they set them for her), and she would make an ideal president. Harris could turn out as hard to control as Trump. No good, as far as the Plutos know.

Rice didn’t stand on the neck of a guy for nine minutes, she stood on the neck of a continent for not just nine years, but twenty-seven years, and that has turned very lucrative for the powers that be. A perfect candidate, perfectly symbolic of the Biden puppet candidacy…

How To Generate Matter Waves In Large Objects

June 14, 2020

L = h/P is the De Broglie hypothesis, where L is the wavelength of the matter wave, P is the momentum of the object, and h is Planck constant. 

The relationship was known in the case of the photon [1].

What I viewed as a mystery: the validity of the formula for any object. It seemed to me to make all particles, and all masses sort of fundamental. How could that be? Meanwhile, the mystery of mass got thicker. I heard of the Higgs, it’s mostly a gimmick to create mass out of friction from an assumed universal field, now supposedly observed… for particles which in the Standard Model which wouldn’t otherwise have any. How much of the mass of a nucleon is produced by simply harnessing E = mcc is unknown to me, but could be most of it.

De Broglie matter waves, simplest version. In general p, the momentum is relativistic, and “mv” is just the slow poke version of it… So all I am saying is that the zillions of linear parts of all these waves add up… OK, I should make my own drawing, severely more sophisticated: this one gives the impression that the linear tails (the outside, guiding parts) of the wave is nonlinear… In SQPR, the center is highly nonlinear, and the outer, guiding part ready to transform itself in Dark Matter, given the right geometry

Then SQPR appeared. In SQPR, waves are everything, but they are additive, nonlinear… And they are all what space is. 

So visualize an object O. It’s made of a zillion elementary particles, call that number Z, each actually an elementary wave, expanding, entangled, then nonlinearly collapsing, then expanding again after that interaction, entangled with all over, etc. In the average, though, the expanding quantum waves of all these objects will have momentum p/Z and mass, m/Z. This clarity of mind escapes Quantum Field Theorists (QFTists), because their version of space is haunted by so-called “vacuum energy”… for which there is only anti-evidence (namely the universe exists; if vacuum energy existed, the universe won’t, because it would be collapsed all the time! [2])

Now SQPR says those linear parts all add up, as an average p/Z and constitute then a mass of m, momentum p. It’s all very simple, but now it sounds intuitive… A return of intuition in physics, would be welcome, instead of complete insanity…

[1]. Planck had discovered E = hF, where F is the frequency of light. Einstein proposed to generalize it to quanta of light (“Lichtquanten”) in flight, and explained immediately the photoelectric effect that way (he got the Nobel for that; by the way, SQPR immediately explains Dark Matter)

[2] One evidence for the vacuum energy is the “CASIMIR EFFECT”… which is thoroughly demonstrated in very practical nanophysics. I explained once how to make it produce much energy. Nobel S. Weinberg  in his book on Gravitation rolls out Casimir as a proof of vacuum energy (instead, I roll out the universe to disprove vac energy!) However, it turns out one doesn’t need the full vac energy to explain Casimir…

Abstract.
In discussions of the cosmological constant, the Casimir effect is often invoked as decisive
evidence that the zero point energies of quantum fields are “real”. On the contrary, Casimir effects
can be formulated and Casimir forces can be computed without reference to zero point energies.
They are relativistic, quantum forces between charges and currents. The Casimir force (per unit
area) between parallel plates vanishes as α, the fine structure constant, goes to zero, and the standard
result, which appears to be independent of α, corresponds to the α → ∞ limit.

SQPR has its own version of the vacuum: it’s truly empty, devoid of mass-energy. All the space that is physical is made of matter waves… Matter waves and pieces thereof all have mass-energy, making them real.

FRANKLIN DC: Change The Name Of The Capital Of The US to “FRANKLIN”.

June 12, 2020

Washington was a systematic racist, who, propelled by greed, invaded entire countries. Time to expose his cover-up by revealing his criminal guiles. Rename the Capital City of the USA!

Why teenie-tiny ridiculous small symbolic changes of obscure places? Master some fortitude, and Go the Whole Way! Washington, in more ways than one, is the very symbol of institutionalized racism at the service of personalized greed. A much better name offers itself: FRANKLIN. 

Pelosi, much admired corrupt politician-plutocrat, war criminal, idol of fake left fronting for real plutocracy, came on TV with her plastered, great white shark of a smile, and surprise, surprise, recommended changing the historical names of many major US military bases, such as Fort Bragg and Fort Lee. Changing those names associated with slavery will fight “systemic racism”. Right. But why stop there?

Among the Founding Fathers, two, at least, were notorious slave owners: Washington and Jefferson. Jefferson, while US ambassador to France (he had succeeded to Franklin), was told, by the French Ancien Regime police, that he couldn’t keep slaves while in France, he had to free them, pay them a living wage, and let them go if they so wished. Some of these slaves were just children and he was sexually abusing them. They pondered staying in France. Jefferson promised to free them, when back in the USA. He lied. 

Washington managed 317 slaves, yes, 317, more than three hundred slaves at his Mount Vernon property alone. Washington refused the pressing, continual, multi-year entreaties of his friend French general Lafayette to entice him to propose the Abolition of Slavery. As Washington owed his victory to Lafayette, his resistance was remarkable. Washington confessed that his refusal to let go of his slaves was because he made a lot of money from his slaves. Excellent answer! One can’t argue with such towering greed.

Ona Judge, a slave of Washington’s wife Martha was of mixed background: her father. Mr. Judge, was white. Born a slave of Martha, she was not taught how to read and write. After she learned that she, and her children would stay a slave, even after the death of George and Martha, she fled the presidential mansion in Philadelphia. Ona Judge died at age seventy-five, on February 25, 1848 in Greenland, New Hampshire. Attesting to the systemic ferocity of the US “justice”, at the time of her death Ona Judge was still not legally a free person; she is not mentioned in Washington’s 1799 will. She and her children stayed slaves. She spent her entire life as a fugitive, evading Washington’s agents, and those of his successor estate. Something similar happened with Washington’s famous cook, Hercules, who also escaped, never to be found again.

Many always want to erase symbols of the past, presumably so that we can relive history, as slaves: 

The correct way to do history is to teach what happened, all of what happened, and why it could have been vastly different, with small tweaks… Bringing down the statues, and forgetting any notion of what happened which was immoral, is exactly how not how to do it: this is Islamist State style action philosophy of history… Pretend the past never happened, so one can repeat it. If one removed any symbol of the exploitation of man by man, museums would be mostly empty, as they are full of them, since mostly only tyrants and their servants had the means of celebrating themselves and their pets. 

Instead of just removing persons, or symbols, one should engrave at their bottom what’s wrong with that person, or symbol. Let me give an example.

***

Louis XIV was a disaster France, and the world, are still recovering from… Don’t erase it from memory! Teach it!

I cordially hate and despise Louis XIV of France. But I want others to learn about all he did wrong, and why, and how… It’s interesting: it reflects possible, scary futures. And so would Louis have wanted, in the end, when he realized he had been wrong all along about war (we know this from his last words, dying from gangrene; as he was talking to his grandson, Louis XV, in spite of the stench, and maybe because of the stench, Louis XV would never forget, hence the loss of Canada, and then the revenge of the US War Of Independence). 

So I detest Louis XIV: he made France from the European superpower, into a fatally wounded beast, full of Catholicism, like he was full of gangrene. But would I want to erase Les Invalides, Versailles, and the dozens of forts Louis left behind? That would be a crime against the inheritance of humanity and a grave error. 

Instead one should teach Louis XIV correctly, in full, focusing on why all of Europe in a grand coalition against him. That would focus attention on this crime against humanity, the euphemistically named “Révocation de L’Edit de Nantes”, and its “Dragonnades”. Not quite Nazi Holocaust against the Jews, but nearly all the way there (so Louis XIV is actually a pathfinder for Hitler; if Louis could do it, why not Adolf?) 

Correctly studying the history of Louis XIV has not been done, yet. Thus, Louis XIV criminal propaganda is still alive and well.

*** 

So what to do with the renaming of names?

In Europe, capitals such as Paris, Rome and London have names more than 2,000 years old. Paris, which the Romans called Lutetia for three centuries, returned to its name from the ancient local tribe of the Parisii, during the Late Roman empire.

New York started as “New Angouleme”, then “New Amsterdam”… But George Washington city? Why? Because Washington went to war to steal Indian lands in the Ohio Valley (fighting the French and committing crimes against humanity in the process), so that he is a perfect symbol of all what’s wrong with systemic, inhuman greed?

Franklin persuaded the entire French plutocracy to finance the US Revolution, and got France to declare war to the United Kingdom, when the American Independence cause looked doomed. France would be in the war for 5 years, until victory. However, the war, worth around 5 trillion 2020 dollars, ruined France… And the US didn’t reimburse one dime. In conjunction with a bad volcanic eruption of Laki in Iceland, this ushered the French Revolution

The case of general Washington is outrageous. Right, he won the War of Independence (initially engineered by the French monarchy and revanchards). But the US would have become independent anyway (just like Canada, but earlier, being eleven times bigger). In the greater scheme of things, the US War of Independence was greatly a French belated retort to her defeat in the Seven Years (World) War of 1756-1763… The latter war was partly lost from Voltaire’s aggressive, anti-French pacifism (Britain went all out to fight the war, leveraging the central bank with a vengeance, France didn’t; Voltaire told his friend the King, and everybody worthy in France, declaration after declaration, that Canada was “only a few acres of snow…”).

As I said, why France lost in 1756-1763 is intimately tied to her losing the wars at the end of Louis XIV’’s dictatorship. Hence Louis’ throwing out the Protestants, also threw out France’s future… Although Protestantism, reform started there five centuries before Luther (yes, exactly in 1026 CE in north-west France, and the church got two dozens of their opponents burned alive)… So nothing was more French than Protestantism. But was Louis XIV really French? After all, his mother was Austrian, and she prevented very deliberately, switching to a Republic during La Fronde. So Louis’ excess of Frenchitude, may just have been the grasping for straws, of one who wanted to show that he was more French than the French… Similar, once again, to the Austrian mongrel Hitler who wanted to prove to the Germans he was more German than the Germans… by killing ten million of them… 

Naturally, French Protestants included much, if not most, of the brightest part of France (quite a bit the same effect as with the Jews: as they were hounded and in conflict, they had to justify their on-going existence as distinctive by achieving said superiority; that sort of effect was long operative in the nobility, and enabled it to justify its own existence). Once ejected out of France, the French Protestants wanted to destroy the tyrant, Louis, who had tortured them, and stolen their future. All correct french textbooks of the period, should contain special Louis XIV barf bags… 

These deductions are not made by historians, especially not historians of the French persuasion. Like most of those who eat crumbs, professionally, they want to eat, and a roof, and positive repute, so they don’t want to irritate their masters.  

To come back to the initial subject, the case that Washington is not to be adulated too much anymore is strong. Look at France: down ever more, and the admiration for Louis and Napoleon, those criminals against humanity, and strategic cretins, has much to do with it. Only the enemies of France, and civilization, should celebrate them. Right, they are legions.

French Canada Model: Greet, Trade and Civilize. Washington’s Model: Greed, Invasion, and Slavery:

At the time, many European individuals, desirous to enjoy the much better life of the new World, sold themselves in “Indentured Servitude”, a form of slavery (in Greco-Roman antiquity, selling oneself in slavery was common). So there were graduation in slavery in the Anglo colony.

French Canada didn’t allow slavery, but it was a completely different sort of colony, founded on trading peacefully with the Natives, and “Mission Civilisatrice”. 

***

George Washington, or the Institutionalization of Systemic Slavery:

Washington’s support of slavery was very personal and very greedy… just because he wanted to stay the wealthiest man north of the Rio Grande. Washington penetrated the Ohio Valley to conduct real estate grabs. Caught, he had to recognize in writing to the French during those “French and Indian Wars” (as the short sighted US sees the 7 year war…) that he was a war criminal (for having executed three dozen French prisoners)…

Washington had learned real estate grabbing by mentoring from Lord Fairfax, who owned the north of Virginia. Here is typical sample of his activities:

“George Washington, Dr. James Craik, his personal physician, and surveyor William Crawford spent nine weeks beginning in October 1770 surveying the 20000 acres that he had been awarded for his service in the French and Indian Wars. Always seeking to obtain the best lands for the least investment, this was an opportunity that Washington was determined not to lose. He “felt an acute sense of urgency, since settlers were already flocking to the Ohio and Great Kanawha rivers, and he feared they might preempt the most productive soil. He also got wind of a huge scheme by English investors to obtain 2.5 million acres and inaugurate a new colony, Vandalia, whose borders might further curtail the bounty lands…

Historian John E. Ferling noted that as “Washington was putting together his second team for the Great Kanawha, he received even more disconcerting news. Shortly after he returned from the Virginia convention sessions in Richmond, one of his old soldiers from his frontier days dropped by Mount Vernon bearing the tale that [British] Governor Dunmore was about to disallow all the land grants previously made to the colony’s veterans of the French and Indian War… Washington listened with disbelief. He could lose twenty-three thousand acres! He immediately contacted the governor, adducing evidence and entreating the executive’s beneficence. But Dunmore dryly responded that if Crawford was not properly certified ‘the patents will of consequence be declared null and void.

Washington’s land holdings clearly affected his political outlook – first regarding England, and later regarding the United States. Washington thought big and thought about the implications of thinking big. Glenn A. Phelps wrote that Washington’s “extensive land-holdings in the West, as well as his frequent surveying expeditions to the frontier, had placed him within a circle of Virginia politicians with somewhat more enterprising, expansionist, westward-looking interests than their tidewater brethren.”

In other words, George Washington should become the symbol of all what’s wrong with the SYSTEMIC GREED, RACISM and ANTI-HUMANISM which characterized the US ever since. That he is generally viewed as one of the three best US presidents only add to that systemic error.

Franklin, Authentic Genius, Humanist: 

Franklin is a much better model than the hopelessly compromised Washington. Yes, he owned slaves, but only two, George and King, who were personal servants. Franklin led an abolitionist organization for the last ten years of his life

Franklin is doubly rare creature, an authentic American intellectual of civilizational weight, a real genius, and also an authentic intellectual who implemented practical progress (both in Europe and America).

The Declaration of Independence was signed by Franklin and others. HOWEVER, Franklin is the only Founding Father who signed all the founding documents of the USA. Benjamin Franklin was appointed minister to France in 1778, John Jay was appointed minister to Spain in 1779 and John Adams to Holland in 1780. Admired by the French for his experiments with electricity, inventions and for his homiristic, charming and humble personality, Franklin was a natural choice as ambassador. Franklin was the first official diplomat and ambassador to the 13 colonies.

War began, thanks greatly to French agents operating in America, who excited against Britain. On 4 December 1777, word reached Benjamin Franklin at Versailles that Philadelphia had fallen and that Burgoyne had surrendered. Two days later, Louis XVI assented to negotiations for an official alliance.The treaty was signed on 6 February 1778, and France declared war on Britain one month later, with hostilities beginning with naval skirmishes off Ushant in June, notably the Action of 17 June 1778. George III did not welcome a war with France, but he was “prepared” for it. The king believed he had tried to avoid the conflict, but “France chooses to be the Aggressor“, and Britain had taken “all the steps necessary if it should end in war“. George III was “prepared” for armed conflict with the French by remembering British victories over that Bourbon power in the Seven Years’ War.

However, then Britain had launched, and paid European powers to fight France, notably Prussia. It was not the case this time, and confronted by France alone, Britain lost. The war would last five years and finish with a Franco-American victory.

Between 1778 and 1782 France kept providing the Continental Army with arms, more than 90% of the cartridges, ammunition, troops, uniforms and naval support. That was Franklin’s work, to a great extent.

***

The inability of Washington to reach any semblance of post-Roman moral clarity relative to the exploitation of man by man is striking: slavery had been outlawed in France more than eleven centuries earlier (655CE), and reinstituted in the English American colony in 1619 CE (as I always remind readers; now even the NYT has embraced the notion…)

People are going around, looking for “institutionalized racism”. Where is it? Well, fist, in the name of the capital city, that of a major slave owner, who had it in his hands to at least try to imitate what had been done in France, eleven centuries earlier. As the Imperium Francorum dominated Europe then, the outlawing of slavery was imposed on all of Western Europe, outside of Muslim invade areas and Britain. However, by the end of the Eleventh Century, the Franks had liberated much of Europe, all the way to Sicily, and slavery was outlawed upon the invasion of England in 1066 CE.

Washington is not just hopelessly compromised, he is hopelessly compromising.

Having named the capital for him, is nothing to be proud of.

It’s not enough to not be a racist. One has to stop behaving as one. Changing the name of the capital to FRANKLIN will energize a conversation about how and why slavery was introduced to North America, and what it did to the American mind, to become so systemic.

Nota bene, slavery was outlawed after the Secession War. Yet, while the question of slavery was one of the causes of the SW, it was not the only one. Several dynamic imbalances between north and south played a role. In any case, the war was savage, and one of the worst civil wars ever in the history of all civilizations, and represents nothing to be proud of.  The US should have been able to find a more civilized way out of systemic racism, than to kill a million people, or so, 3% of the population (10 or 15 times, relative to population what the French “Terror” killed… but the Terror was propelled, and part of, a huge attack and conspiracy against France by all the plutocratic powers of Europe) … especially as it didn’t just changing from a form of racism which disadvantaged the north to one which looked more benign: factories of the South manned by slaves had proven at a competitive advantage to factories of the north where workers were treated like slaves (this fact is ignored; I read the study in Science magazine; looked very well done).     

Krugman’s New Trade Theory Would Be Idiotic, Were It Not So Criminal, Enslaving Us All To China 

June 9, 2020

A problem preventing progress in the USA, thus the world is that plutocracy masters (and owns) the media, the universities, the international prizes, international organizations, and the intellectual discourse, even the haughtiest (as I have argued all top philosophy is in its grip, over as a vaccine against progress, rather than as a treatment against progress).

A famous example, the self-described “Conscience of a Liberal”, Paul Krugman. I stopped arguing with him, a few years ago, because I was tired of his censorship, and I was hoping Trump would demolish Krugman’s great work, GLOBAL PLUTOCRACY, and becoming all slaves to China. Krugman got the Nobel for his “New Trade Theory”. There have been Trade theories and practices since before the Bronze Age Era, the civilization of which collapsed spectacularly, and simultaneously, 33 centuries ago. 

Trade is engaged into for a myriad of complex reasons, from the point of a lance poking one’s behind, to “comparative advantage”. Trade was a matter of survival for hundreds of thousands of years, as local tribes couldn’t get that obsidian, or flintlock from far away, that is, necessary material to make superior weaponry. So much of trade theory consists into rediscovering the obvious and long-well-known. 

Even if it worked, NTT would work only between similarly sized countries. But China is much bigger, 40 tiimes bigger than the average country in population. I guess Krugman is reading that her for the first time…. And because it’s a dictatorship organized by US plutocrats, another type of dictators, decorated fro freedom by Obama, China is alway first, an advantage NTT venerates…

In NTT Krugman focused on returns afforded by scale. The bigger the industrial corporation, the cheaper quality/price it can fabricate goods. Krugman loves to talk in non understandable ways, here is on his own work: “The idea that trade might reflect an overlay of increasing-returns specialization on comparative advantage was not there at all: instead, the ruling idea was that increasing returns would simply alter the pattern of comparative advantage.” Whatever, the “Conscience of a Liberal” tries to obscure his evil work with what he calls “wonkish”.

New trade theory suggests that the ability of firms to gain economies of scale (unit cost reductions associated with a large scale of output) can have important implications for international trade… namely you will wallop the competition.

New trade theory suggests that: 

a)through its impact on economies of scale, trade can increase the variety of goods available to consumers and decrease the average cost of those goods.

b) in those industries when output required to attain economies of scale represents a significant proportion of total world demand, the global market may only be able to support a small number of enterprises.

c) Government may play a role in assisting its home based companies. This implies that all jobs will go to China, a dictatorship. Indeed, Chinese companies can achieve the largest scale: their interior market is nearly five times the US. Also it’s OK that China intervenes to assist its own behemoths: see point c).

Reading this, Stalin may have ordered Krugman send to Siberia for plagiarism. Stalin used to say:”Quantity is its own quality”. (He was referring to T34 tanks and planes, many of them from the US…) My point? none of this is new. What’s new is for richly educated economists (as they serve the rich) to discover those old truths.

As most Western European countries have no scale, they are just Hong Kong without financials, they will only be nations of “consumers”. But where will their money come from? Will they have to sell their children to the Chinese dictatorship?

“Variety And Reducing Costs” (one more lie!)

Without trade, nations might not be able to produce those products where economies of scale are important. With trade, markets are large enough to support the production necessary to achieve economies of scale. So, trade is mutually beneficial because it allows for the specialization of production, the realization of scale economies, and the production of a greater variety of products at lower prices.

NTT is either geographically challenged idiotic… Or takes us for geographically challenged idiots. His idiotic reasoning works only if the trading partners are all of the same size, roughly, and of the same political nature. But they are not. The average country population is only 35 millions, and the median country population is less than ten million, a fraction of one percent of the size of China. 

NTT is correct that the pattern of trade we observe in the world economy may be the result of first mover advantages (the economic and strategic advantages that accrue to early entrants into an industry) and economies of scale.

New trade theory suggests that for those products where economies of scale are significant and represent a substantial proportion of world demand, first movers can gain a scale based cost advantage that later entrants find difficult to match. The US and China have been acting accordingly, while piously preaching the opposite, namely economic liberalism, open borders. An excellent example is SpaceX, launched under Bush, which received billions under Obama, under the table (and above the table, from Trump). Now Space X excellent products will destroy all and any aerospace industry, worldwide… except in the countries which decide to have their own aerospace (China, Russia, India… others not clear…).  

Official Implications Of New Trade Theory:

Nations may benefit from trade even when they do not differ in resource endowments or technology (so the Europeans have been persuaded to open to China and the US, because they may benefit… just like a fly may benefit from being devoured by a spider).

A country may dominate in the export of a good simply because it was lucky enough to have one or more firms among the first to produce that good (as we Americans are always first we shall DOMINATE, because we dominated first). Bing first becomes a respected form of comparative advantage (watch Tesla opening a giant plant in Germany next year).

An extension of the theory is the implication that governments should consider strategic trade policies that nurture and protect firms and industries where first mover advantages and economies of scale are important.

If progressives want to progress towards human rights and a better planet, they will have to learn to realize they have been led by crooks who made “theories” to justify the disappearance of local employment, dignity, education and income, fostering instead exploitation by a dictatorship.

Does Krugman realize what an abominable role new Trade Theory has played in the imposition of global plutocracy? Apparently not. He spews, editorial after editorial, horrible insults about Donald Trump… But, remove the insults, and the substantial thing he complains about is less “New Trade”, a euphemism for selling the world to China, in exchange for getting cheaper goods, which presumably we will pay for with money produced by China, as China produces everything…

In many countries, dozens of thousands of death happened, during the Corochinavirus, because everything, including masks, were made in China. Thanks, NTT and its comparative advantage to… China. China had no more death than Sweden (China lies, of course) All these deaths in these other countries would not have happened if we had the right NECESSARY TRADE THEORY.

As long as the crooks and even their crooqkery, have not been detected… where is the hope?

Love Rests On Discrimination

June 8, 2020

We told you it was complicated. In the linked video, a man attacks a python who is smothering an antelope… to eat it, of course. The question is: is it right to intervene? Some will say no, and keep on filming, just as when retired, 78 year old, police captain David Dorn bled to death, shot multiple times, and passerbys just watched him wallop in his blood, instead of applying pressure on his wounds (that limits bleeding).

The present indignation has been selective. Whereas the Minneapolis PD is clearly rotten, several other horrendous murders have occured, potentially more telling. The guy on the left is now charged with FIRST degree murder of David Dorn, right, an innocent respected grandfather…

So here is a mammal, a human, feeling for another mammal, against a predator genetically alien for at least 350 million years… If we don’t encourage others to love our fellow beast, don’t we discourage the apparition of love? So yes, at some point, we have to discriminate between us and them. Mammals are more human than snakes!  

 

It matters where in the affinity scale we are. It matters what is out topology of ideas and feelings. What’s close, what’s far. Yes, Black Lives matter, but if you have to say it, what’s the matter with you? Yes, there is police violence, but it responds to general social violence, some of it even venerated by the likes of Bernie Sanders. And “defunding” the police? Why don’t you defund your brain first?

Hear, Hear: War Criminal Powell Will Vote Biden

June 7, 2020

Colin Powell, Defense Secretary of G.W. Bush, deliberately lied to the United Nations in 2003, claiming Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction. The idea emanated from Senator Biden of the Foreign Com. Because Powell, and Biden, were highly respected, many UN members, such as the UK, sided with the US. France was unable to get the UN to block the US… But neither did the US get an authorization to attack.

….regarding whether Iraq had reconstituted a nuclear weapons program, he said, at the UN:

POWELL: There is no doubt in my mind …

That’s in public. What about in private? According to Larry Wilkerson, Powell’s chief of staff, here’s what Powell was thinking at the time:

WILKERSON: [Powell] had walked into my office musing and he said words to the effect of, ‘I wonder how we’ll all feel if we put half a million troops in Iraq and march from one end of the country to the other and find nothing.’

The attack on Iraq killed millions of Iraqis. And also killed 4,600 US citizens and wounded in action another 300,000. But don’t worry: it would spoil the mood to remember this, so everyone forgets it, and refuses to learn about the role of Biden and Pelosi in the destruction of Iraq. Just as with the attack on Afghanistan of July 3, 1979 secretly ordered by Carter, advised by Brezezinsky. Now Brezezinsky’s daughter, Mica, is married to “Morning Joe” and a pillar of well-thinking America. 

Nobody has any idea that the attack on Iraq was to shut down Iraqi production, and massively launch US fracking. The sinister duo of Bush and Obama implemented the plan, with Wall Street enthusiastic support… If you mention this, most “liberal” Americans will “cancel” you immediately, in the good old US racist tradition… It is hilarious that most young US citizens who are in the “cancel culture” don’t realize they reproduce exactly the racist, segregating methodology of their ancestors…

CNN TAPPER: Two years ago, you said we shouldn’t create a cold war situation with the Chinese. Are we in one, do you think?

POWELL: We’re in a bad situation right now, because we’re fighting over things that I don’t think we need to fight over.
The Chinese did not do well at the very beginning of this virus crisis. But, at the same time, it was our intelligence community that was telling the administration, telling the president, beginning in December, through January, February, March, that we had this.”

So Powell is changing the conversation… and, as far as I know, lying, as there is no evidence intelligence said anything. The problem with China is not so much China, but sending all the jobs and inventions there. The jobs, everybody knows about, but the upper middle class doesn’t care…. The inventions? That subtilty is above the understanding of 99% of US citizens, as Obama, under the advice of plutocrats he then decorated, sabotaged the US Patent System, to make the Chinese one superior. Yes, so devious, trust that Obama the half-wit (for a US president) had no idea what he was doing… He made discourse saying he was “fighting trolls”….

“Black” police officers being rude to white PC woman trying to master gravity on the right

 Demonstrations all over the USA accusing… “racism”. When actually what’s at fault is an evil organization of a plutocratic society. Now right, numbers don’t lie, and the US is a racist country on the face of it, because people are asked, by the state, for their “race”, so they can behave racial… something which, in the case of many “blacks” is like asking them if their ancestors resented those who were not enslaved, etc. In truth there is enormous violence in US society and “racist” turmoil is just a cover-up. From 1960 to 2010, thanks to the Biden crime bill of 1994, the rate of incarceration of blacks tripled. OK, let me quote from The Economist I am subscribed to, and which, being global plutocratic in nature, absolutely hates Trump (a theme this week led by Paul Krugman, is to say that Trump is “much much worse than Nixon… So I saw that appear in many newspapers, and with roughly the same words in The Economist… demonstrating that this sort of campaign is coordinated… such as when Trump talk about Isonomia, and said “George” would be pleased to see all the demonstration, and the Pluto press transformed this in Trump boasting about employment numbers).

 

Since 2000, the number of poor Americans who live in areas of concentrated poverty (defined as places where more than a fifth live below the federal poverty line) has increased by 57%. And black children are seven times as likely as white children to experience this more corrosive form of poverty.

Concentrated disadvantage becomes deeper disadvantage. Social scientists have compiled a mountain of evidence linking life in such neighbourhoods to worse outcomes for health, education, income and risk of incarceration. To live in segregated areas plagued with poverty and violence for generations is to experience continuous loss of opportunity. And it can corrode democratic cohesion as well, by creating separate spheres of race and class—one for “us” and one for “them”.

Three important social indicators for black men have also worsened over the past half-century, even as out-and-out racial animus has declined. Joblessness has become more common. In 1972 nearly 80% of black men above the age of 20 were in the labour force. That rate dropped slowly but substantially over the ensuing decades to 67% on the eve of covid-19, and then to 63% now. The share of births to unmarried couples has increased from nearly 40% to 70%. These family arrangements are highly unstable; about 70% will have broken up five years after a child is born. And incarceration has risen to extraordinary levels. Between 1960 and 2010, it more than tripled for black men.

The three phenomena are interrelated in a complex way. But they probably account for much of the observed extraordinary downward mobility of black boys compared with black girls or whites. Black boys born to families in the top 1% of the income distribution are as likely to go to prison as white boys born in the bottom third.

Notice The Economist forgot to say Biden did this, the 300% higher incarceration rate. Black Lives Matter is against the 1994 Biden law. It is not reasonable to suppose his author will demolish it. So how long will this comedy last? That crook, Bernie Sanders (I voted for him twice) lost to Biden, because he didn’t want to “go negative”. So when talking heads egg him to say something negative about Biden and Iraq, Sanders deflected the question into grotesquely irrelevant directions. That means Sanders knew that Biden is guilty as hell in the attack on Iraq, so he carefully evaded the subject, as had been fixed in advance [1]. A man kills millions though lies, and one doesn’t want to “go negative”. Why not treat Hitler the same way? Did Sanders’ ancestors treat Hitler the same way? One can suspect they did. But it’s because millions of US Jews and dozens of millions of US citizens didn’t want to “go negative” on Hitler, that France was defeated, and “The Holocaust” made possible.

The US leadership is a long story of plutocracy in the last 106 years… But its biggest crimes have escaped, not just prosecution, but even examination. If one mentions the general direction, one is immediately accused of “conspiracy theory”. Because the first thing a US citizen in good standing believes, and advertises, is that there was never a conspiracy in the history of the North American English theory. We are all apolitical here, nothing to see, and they bleat.

[1] Sanders hid his refusal to really hurt Biden as deserved, under this state of ridiculous anger and indignation, a great rage roaring, signifying nothing, except total approbation for the Biden master puppet role. BTW, Sanders has always been for guns (he foams at the mouth in Vermont, which has lots of hunting)… However, handguns can kill police, so only police should have the right to own them. Lots of the US police brutality is directly attributable to police fear of being shot (several did, one dead, yesterday in Santa Cruz mountains… So Bay Area got at least two officers killed in a week or so, by bullets). A white person I know once was stopped for a bogus traffic violation. She dug for her papers in the trunk of her car: several police officers had been called first, and she was informed they were ready to shoot. It was a white woman… So, of course, drunk black men don’t stand a chance…
