Does Clinton Corruption Matter?

November 3, 2016

Clinton Foundations (yes, there are two!) helped Clinton as a presidential candidate (be it just with taxpayer paid travel in the best accommodations). The Foundations were entangled with the State Department. It is 99% probable that at least five countries had full access to State Department mail, thanks to Clinton’s private server. Clinton knew the debate questions in excruciating details (proven for one debate), that’s how she beat Sanders. Ethics up, guys!

A typical answer came from a Clinton fanatic, Mike Griffith: “So what. We just need to stop Trump. Right, Patrice? I’m alright with a little corruption. I’m sure Hillary is no angel, nor her husband, nor George Bush (probably the worse of the bunch / not to mention Cheney).”  

That was part of various exchanges, where I got most of the insults in the book, hurled my way (it just wakes me up, better than my tenth cup of coffee). I replied that: You need to stop plutocracy. Good luck doing it with a genius of qui pro quo such as Hillary, who transformed $1,000 into six figures, supposedly all by her little self, when she was in her twenties, playing cattle futures. Actually she was not playing the futures, the lawyer for Tyson Foods, Arkansas’ main employer, was “playing” them for her. Specialists have evaluated her trading success as one chance in 31 trillions. It was obviously a back payment for service rendered… or expected. Did I mention the obvious? Her husband and presumed accomplice, was governor of Arkansas. Yes, corruption grows with the years, especially when one got away with it.

I am not particularly for Trump (I used to be against Trump, decades ago, but now we have much worse under our eyes, and experienced much more wicked minds). However I am aware of extremely damaging laws which attack fundamental liberties of simple people (such as Obama’s great invention to terrorize little guys who dare to travel a bit, FATCA; I will speak of FATCA in detail some other day, it is exemplary of the viciousness of so-called “Democrats”).

I am more for democracy and truth than for anything else. It is funny to see a bunch of Clinton fanatics insulting other people, or even democracy, in the rabid hope that all what Clinton propagandists, who happen to be the standard plutocratic propagandists, brandish as truth, is all true: if Trump did not exist, the USA would be OK.

Those anti-Trump haters did not notice that Trump never ran for office before. Nor did they notice that Bill Clinton ran for Congress in 1974,  That was 42 years ago. This is a Clinton world we are living in, not Trump’s. 

Carter Declared Secret War To Afghanistan On July 3, 1979. Clinton Would Pursue It, And Attack Iraq, Too. Why Do We Need Such Warlords, Deciding Of Life And Death, To Overlord US?

Now for the bigger question:

Does Some Corruption In The Leaders Of The Republic Matter?

The answer is that it all depends of what the alleged corruption is, who, and what for. Corruption of the spirit of the Roman Republic was alleged against the Gracchi, because they did not follow traditional procedures when passing their anti-plutocratic laws. A detailed examination of the circumstances show that complaint was unfounded, considering what was at stake: the Gracchi tried desperately to stop the plutocratization of the Roman Republic. They had good reason to believe the plutocrats were playing dirty, because they were. Ultimately, the Gracchi laws passed, the Gracchi were assassinated, and the anti-plutocracy laws were not enforced.

Similarly, corruption was alleged against Caesar. It was both true, and irrelevant: Caesar was going to leave at the head of the greatest army Rome ever had, to subdue Persia, just as Alexander had done before, swing through the Caucasus, and subdue Germany from behind. Had Caesar succeeded, the Roman Republic could have survived, and taken the world over. However, the plutocrats who assassinated Caesar feared a triumph of the Republic more than anything else. So they killed a departing Caesar.

What we have now in the USA is an extremely dangerous form of corruption:

Corporate Fascism Serves Its Servants Well:

How did Mussolini, Hitler, Franco, get to power? With the help from major US corporations and their leading plutocrats. This is what the official history books do not want you to suspect.

Under Obama, extending a movement well launched by the Clintons’ repeal of the Banking Act of 1933, corporate fascism has been allowed to run rampant.

The present US system is the most corrupt in the history of the world, if measured by size alone (just like we are the richest people who ever lived, as measured by GDP and my own AWE).

Obama has advantaged what one should call the Obama corporations. All the Obama corporations pay little, or no taxes: Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon, GE, etc. Obama corporations have the full might and so-called “justice” of the United States of America behind them. What, who pays for that? The little guys, worldwide.

“Friends” such as Mike Griffith, above, have scoffed:”Why to give up power?” The reason to not gather too much power on the few is equality (at least of opportunity), without which there is no democracy. And if there is less democracy, there is less mental power, thus less power, even less economic and social power, period. As Obama corporations are advantaged, little guys, including the engineers and scientists who make the system innovative, suffer, shrivel, and disappear. Obama may think, in his naivety, that Elon Musk is a great scientist, and needs billions of state aid, but Musk is actually nothing important for innovation. The guys who design electronic chips are much more important. And such people are decimated by the system Obama and the pro-plutocratic Supreme Court have set-up. They are reduced to bankruptcy.The corruption in the present regime extends all the way down the justice system. Federal judges can take decisions in favor of giant corporations, and even refuse to make them pay what a jury has decided they should pay. Then underhanded pressure make the lawyers of the little guys go away, and the Judge accepts a job in one of said corporations I saw the situation from distance zero; obviously I am going to give no names, you are not just talking about ruin here, but much more definitive solutions. Speaking of that, at distance zero too, I was told of direct death threats in the realm of a joint private-public employment. This entanglement of deadly corruption started with racist president Wilson, through the likes of Prescott Bush, Brown, Brother Harriman, Dulles Brothers, and all the plutos higher in the chain of command. We are now in generation five or so. Obamacare was written by Sen. Baucus a fifth generation Pluto, etc… The Clinton are low level puppets of that monstrosity. However top notch lawyers know they set up systems to kill thousands (legally, through mock drug charges).

When The Big Guy Is Free To Terrorize the Little Guy, You Get Persia, Not Athenian Greece:

When the Macedonian (that is Macedonian plutocracy) led army defeated Achaemenid  Persia, the Macedonians and their Greek contingents were stunned by the advanced Persian civilization. The freeway system was stunning (in the gigantic empire, news took just a week). The buildings of Babylon, with its suspended gardens, or of Persepolis, with its gigantic palaces, were stunning. The Persians were highly sophisticated. Laws were intricate, administration superb.

So why was Persia not more advanced than Greece, but a retard, instead?

Liberty, Equity, Equality. Greece was not perfect that way, far from it. But it was much better. So innovation was Greek, just as it had been Sumerian, Egyptian and Cretan earlier. And for the same reason.

In Persia, oligarchies were enabled to gather overwhelming power. They were headed by “Satraps”. Thus the little guys got crushed.

All together, the little minds of the little guys gather more mind than the few minds of a few Satraps.

The Clintons and Obama (let alone the crazed like a fox G.W. Bush) want us to live little lives, when they live big, harnessing the state. But you would have had to experience a keen interest in history since the day before yesterday to know this. But you did not. Because like Obama, you had only passion for the Chicago Cubs and the like (Obama tweets about this sort of brain-dead material all the time). Having passion for nothing is not worth it, and it creates dead minds, fit for slaves.

So yes, Clinton corruption matters.

And this time, it is not just about the USA, or the West, or even civilization. It’s about the planet.

Yes, I know, they accuse Trump. Trump was not in power, guys.

The Clintons were.

Obamacraze, Clinton, & The Sixth Sense

October 4, 2016

OBAMACRAZE Or Obamacare? Clinton, Bill, says the former:

The last eight years have been hard for real progressives. After some racist taunts, by a few, Obama became wildly popular (according to the polls). Yet, in some ways, he was the most right-wing president, EVER. The plutocrats’ extrication from the 2008 crisis was concocted by G.W. Bush, and mostly executed by Obama. The mercantilist and fascist rule of carefully nurtured monopolies was straight out of corporate fascism, as technically explained by professor Gentile and implemented by Mussolini, then Chancellor-President Hitler: see the blatant example of Apple Inc. paying 1% taxes, with the full backing of Obama!

And the symbol of all this fascist, oligarchic drive, has been the so-called Obamacare. I criticized it thoroughly when it was first proposed, in countless, unambiguous essays. However, criticizing idiots for idiocy, or the corrupt for corruption, is as clever as bashing one’s head on a brick wall, in the hope of curing a headache. Criticizing Obamacare was suicidal, for one’s reputation as a progressive. All it did was burnish my reputation as a “racist”(never mind that I am zero racist, with family originating from two continents and Pacific Islands).

Not Just A Sixth Sense, But Also A Sensory Organ

Not Just A Sixth Sense, But Also A Sensory Organ

Many who are for Clinton are rabidly so, seemingly more interested with insulting Donald Trump than by the (extremely important) issues themselves. Thus I got really surprised yesterday. Yesterday happened the event of the little boy who said the emperor had no clothes. Except that it was a rather big boy, named Bill, and the emperor was Satan himself, fully under the covers of a caring attitude.

Ex-president Bill Clinton criticized President Barack Obama’s so-called “signature” policy reform Monday while on the stump for his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, calling Obamacare “the CRAZIEST THING IN THE WORLD“. Strong words. Out-Trumping Trump on the subject.

Speaking at a Democratic rally in Flint, Michigan, the former president ripped into Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) for flooding the health care insurance market by private companies vying for market share, and causing premiums to rise for middle-class Americans who do not qualify for subsidies.
“So you’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It’s the craziest thing in the world,” Clinton said. In further depiction, Bill Clinton said average Americans were “getting killed” by Obamacare. (Schools are actually pretty much dying from it, especially private schools, or even giant public university systems, such as the University of California.)

Wow. Those Clintons are really determined to get back to the White House. They are even ready to tell it as it is.

***

Often the obvious is the hardest to enunciate, if it wallops Conventional Wisdom. Yes, under Obamacare, Premiums have exploded, so did “Co-pays” and access to doctors has shrunk. When one divides the public in ten slices, according to income, only the lowest one had profited from Obamacare. In other words, healthcare has been made worse for most, so that Obama and his wealthy supporters can claim to be progressives. Actually, Obamacare is the last, and most spectacular victory of the spirit of greed. It is “Obamagreed” or “healthgreed”, rather than Obamacare, or healthcare. Running care for profit has never worked, and cannot ever work: care and greed appeal to different hormones.

***

One generally considers that there are five senses: hearing, touch, sight (ophthalmoception), taste (gustaoception), smell (olfacoception). However, the ability to detect other stimuli beyond those also exists, for example temperature (thermoception), and kinesthetic sense (proprioception, because muscles have stretch receptors), and also pain (nociception).

Finally balance (equilibrioception) is not just a sense, but it has its own organ, located in the inner ear. When people are in space, experiencing no gravity, the sixth sense coming from the semi-circular canals comes into conflict with the sense coming from the eyes.

And now even Bill Clinton is showing Common Sense about that emperor with clothes of greed, Obamacare. Lack of Common Sense is not the ultimate corruption, but it is close (only the grossest violations of love and care are greater) . Yes, it should be known as “Obamacraze”. Thank you.

Economic Incompetence A Cover-Up?

December 14, 2014

Senator Elizabeth Warren (Democrat, Massachusetts) is one of the couple of American politicians with a progressive mindset. She has criticized the latest government funding bill because it repeals part of Dodd-Frank (notice that the Democrats are still in power, doing this re-augmentation of the power of financial plutocrats, just before leaving office, no doubt to reap their rewards when they will be looking for juicy compensations in a few weeks).

Warren also disagreed with Obama’s nomination of investment banker Antonio Weiss for the Treasury Department (not the first time Obama names such a fat cat to watch the hens, a method now copied by Hollande).

Warren will never be part of the real government of the USA (those are people such as Weiss, or (famous for her “Fuck-Europe) Nuland who stand just below the figure heads (Obama, Hagel, Kerry, etc.) Or then she will have to do what she is told.

It is true that some American politicians instituted forceful reforms: the two Roosevelts and JFK were from a plutocratic background, and the three of them were also warriors (real ones). Johnson, however rotten, rode JFK’s assassination to pass a progressive agenda, and Eisenhower, with his 93% upper margin tax, was also a warrior.

In all cases, progressive American politicians were extremely aggressive types. In comparison, Bill Clinton, a spineless schmoozer, made it so that the financial derivatives market went from 80 TRILLION dollars to the present 800 trillions.

So the financial derivatives market is about 12 times WORLD GDP. In other words, for one transaction among the low lives, the fat cats make 12.

Here comes Krugman, in his latest, “Made As Hellas”:

“The Greek fiscal crisis erupted five years ago, and its side effects continue to inflict immense damage on Europe and the world. But I’m not talking about the side effects you may have in mind — spillovers from Greece’s Great Depression-level slump, or financial contagion to other debtors. No, the truly disastrous effect of the Greek crisis was the way it distorted economic policy, as supposedly serious people around the world rushed to learn the wrong lessons.”

Well, I have several twists on this: first, the fundamental crisis was the financial derivatives crisis in New York and London. Second, as I will show, the wrong lessons were taught by the usual cast of deviant characters and their servants. It was, it is, a case of intoxication with the wrong ideas, to poison the world’s entire economy, thus its society, and future… to profit the few who hold the strings.

Krugman pursues: What happened last time, you may recall, was the exploitation of Greece’s woes to change the economic subject. Suddenly, we were supposed to obsess over budget deficits, even if borrowing costs were at historic lows, and slash government spending, even in the face of mass unemployment. Because if we didn’t, you see, we could turn into Greece any day now. “Greece stands as a warning of what happens to countries that lose their credibility,” intoned David Cameron, Britain’s prime minister, as he announced austerity policies in 2010. “We are on the same path as Greece,” declared Representative Paul Ryan, who was soon to become the chairman of the House Budget Committee, that same year.

In reality, Britain and the United States…were and are nothing like Greece. Now Greece appears to be in crisis again. Will we learn the right lessons this time?

I have no idea how events in Greece are about to turn out. But there’s a real lesson in its political turmoil that’s much more important than the false lesson too many took from its special fiscal woes.”

Krugman is superficially correct, but fundamentally naïve.

An elite of sort-of thinking thieves conspiring with the world’s biggest plutocrats, rules, abuses, exploits, and splurges.

That elite of robbers has run out of sophisticated bogus arguments which everybody believes in, so, now, they are trying to present themselves as incompetent … but they then add that anybody else would do much worse than they do.

In other words, the plutocrats and their political accomplices and agents use now their own incompetence as a cover-up.

How do I know that they deliberately use incompetence as a cover-up?

I saw recently the worst accusations being flung at some cabinet ministers in France (where it is a crime to insult the members of the government) and against others, such as Juncker (a fitting name, close to “junk”).

Juncker, the new head of the European Commission, who, over a quarter of a century, as Finance Minister, and then Prime Minister of Luxembourg, organized outrageous tax evasion of the order of trillions of Euros by some of the wealthiest individuals and corporations in the world, thus putting in misery hundreds of millions of Europeans. Juncker, is arguably, one of the world’s top criminals, ethically speaking. His monstrous crimes leave him impassible: apparently he has seen, or committed, worse.

So how do these extremely high level politicians react, when they are told, in public, they are greedy, thieving, conniving, low lives? Well, they react as if they fully expected those complaints and insults: they find them natural. Why? Obviously because they did, indeed, commit them, and they know very well their crimes are in plain sight.

We have many examples of the worst regimes in the last 4,000 years of recorded history, when regimes went astray, and yet, they found many to serve them.

We are experiencing now such a case. Basically all European politicians, and the political system they grew from ought to be thrown out, and replaced by direct democracy. How? Just copy what is done in Switzerland.

The problem is the same in the USA. But, as the world’s largest national economy, and military, and networked empire, the USA plutocrats have fed their servants with more crumbs. Hence the more subdued and less revolted state of the American populace…

Obama, Neo-Con

July 24, 2014

About this title: Obama enabled maximally prominent Neo-Cons to represent and govern the USA. When I asked Silicon Valley cognoscenti what it meant for a supposedly “democratic” presidency to nominate maximally prominent neofascists, I was told: “They represent the HIDDEN government of the USA.”

For years it was incorrect to point out that emperor Obama had no clothes, that all he had was playing with his brown skin. That observation was called racist. Yet, it has been made recently, loud and clear, by leftists of renown: president Obama has been incompetent, and a sell-out. As Thomas Frank puts it in Salon:

“Right-wing obstruction could have been fought: An ineffective and gutless presidency’s legacy is failure.

Yes, we know, the crazy House. But we were promised hope and change on big issues. We got no vision and less action.”

Change? Skin Color

Change? Skin Color

Within days of Obama’s accession to power, banks were given public money without any counterparts. This was an outrageous theft of public money. I advocated it was “Time for RICO“. I may as well have told the mafia to summon the police.

Just as Reagan-Bush 25 years ago, and Sweden later, after 2007, the UK and Germany nationalized giant banks such as Northern Rock, RBS, Hypo Real Estate, when they had to give them hundreds of billions to save them. Instead in the USA, the banks were given trillions, without so much as a change of management; the fact the banks were given money was hidden by the simple device of TARP, then giving plenty more to banks through Quantitative Easing, to reimburse TARP…

To the great applause of conscientious, politically correct “liberals”, such as drummer boy Krugman.

This has world consequences: it made American financiers rule the world, more than ever; GE, saved by Obama’s $60 billion, just bought a French giant competitor, Alsthom. This is the Faustian deal of the USA: its plutocrats may rule the USA, but they also rule the world, and that increasing empire profits average Americans.

The dying Roman Republic went through a similar Faustian bargain with its increasing militarization: the resulting empire profited the Populus Romanus, while killing the Republic. The most insidious corruption corrupts the souls.

Real Change: Beggar In Chief

Real Change: Beggar In Chief

[Profitable presidency: Obama spent at least 400 day raising billions from the richest plutocrats.]

Then, unbelievably, Obama kept on saying he could not do a thing without Republican’s approval (never mind that he had 60% of the votes in the Senate, and a strong majority in Congress). It was, Obama explained disingenuously, a new way of doing politics by consensus. The savages opposing him rejected it, Obama’s fanatics informed us, thus making him a failure.

In truth, Obama had such strong control of all the government and the legislative, he could easily have imposed “Medicare For All“.

I have said all of this in the past, but, from another pen, my point of view comes out stronger. Thomas Frank again:

“America should have changed but didn’t… [how] to explain an age when every aspect of societal breakdown was out in the open and the old platitudes could no longer paper it over—when the meritocracy was clearly corrupt, when the financial system had devolved into organized thievery, when everyone knew that the politicians were bought and the worst criminals went unprosecuted and the middle class was in a state of collapse and the newspaper pundits were like street performers… for an audience that had lost its taste for mime and seriousness both. It was a time when every thinking person could see that the reigning ideology had failed, that an epoch had ended, that the shitty consensus ideas of the 1980s had finally caved in—and when an unlikely champion arose from the mean streets of Chicago to keep the whole thing propped up nevertheless.”

As early as 2009, it dawned on me that Obama was neither incompetent nor a sellout. I said so on some leftist sites, and was promptly thrown out, as a “troll” and a “Neo-Con”. Obama was a Neo-Conservative from the start and was chosen for that, by the higher-ups of the “democratic” party: they gave him a keynote speech, and their top master operative.

Obama practiced Dick Morris and Bill Clinton’s theory of triangulation — basically the democrats do the republicans’ work for them: democrats deregulated, balanced the budget, and unleashed the financial markets of the USA, while allowing huge corporations to pay no taxes. Clinton declared that the “era of big government is over.” Big banks, small government.

All of this covered by noises to the contrary while the notorious weasel, Dick Morris, chuckled. Weasels are somewhat below apes in the evolution of evolution. Not to worry, French judges never heard of Dick Morris, and he is white, in any case.

Nearly all American leftists, including myself, did not see early enough that Obama was a Neo-Con with Martin Luther King’s mien. We got manipulated by his speeches and rhetoric. His King-style voice rhythms sucked all back to the nostalgia of the progressive 1960s.

We were blinded by political correctness. I recovered quickly, in the first few weeks of Obama’s administration: it was clear Obama was all in rhetoric, and no action.

Obama claimed he could not do a thing, because the “Republicans” blocked him. In truth, fifth generation plutocrats such as Max Baucus, a major democratic senator, were the excuse Obama evoked, in democratic circles, to say he could not a thing. (That Max Baucus lather authored “Obamacare”, is pretty telling.)

I wrote, on this site, about the commonality between Obama’s behavior and that of the “boys” who used to serve white masters in Kenya. Some in my family wrote to me I had trampled on their hearts, and had no common decency. I replied my decency was uncommon. (No doubt it made their stays at Camp David less comfy, so they have hated me ever since.)

Obama is a far more competent Neo-Con than Bush Jr., or even Reagan, ever were. Those had opponents. Obama got collaborators, all over. No banana peel shaking for him. No need for French judges.

The two Bushes generated a backlash and really could only rule in secret, or though devious means. Obama instead pushed the agenda of Wall Street Banks, USA corporations, and the CIA/NSA much further than Bush ever dreamed of, by going public about it while carefully misrepresenting the truth.

For example, Obama officially clashed with Netanyahu. However, below that surface of enmity, extensive cooperation developed, say on anti-missile systems (the fact I like those systems is irrelevant). Such systems were crucial to allow Israel to not negotiate with the Palestinians.

Clinton was the best president the republicans ever had. Under him Franklin D. Roosevelt’s revolutionary reforms of finance and banks were completely undone; Rubin, that is Goldman Sachs and their followers were solidly in command. Clinton, while officially at war with Newt Gingrich, was actually doing the work the Republicans could never have done, had Bush Senior still been president.

As the Republicans got all they wanted, the debate switched further to the right. When the democrats acquired control of Congress in 2006, they went right. Pelosi and company accepted to give all the money banks and shadow banks wanted in 2008. Without any counterparts. Obama became the best president the Neo-Cons could dream of.

Obama once convoked all the top bankers to the White House. He announced, triumphal, that the Obama team was “the only thing between you and the pitchforks”. He delivered. Thanks to political correctness, nobody important dared say that the emperor had no clothes. That, would, indeed, have deemed to be racist. Still is. But not for long.

The picture that will stick with Obama is the one I observed six years ago: a black boy, serving the white masters. and not for brains: under Obama, the share of scientific publications by the USA has collapsed. Why? Under Obama, plutocratization has jumped (as I said, because of the treatment of finance). So it has in academia. But money has deleterious effects on research (if nothing else, it creates the wrong mood and obsession).

Obama ran his first campaign as “change you can believe in”. Yes, none at all. Obama, at best consolidated Bush’s Neo-Con rule. At worst he is still the engulfing lie that appearance is all what reality is about.

Freedom To Lie

November 21, 2013

Medal Of Freedom For Lying

President Kennedy invented a distinction called the “Medal of Freedom”. Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey got it. I am familiar with Clinton’s work: without question a much loved president, although not as much as JFK (the most popular USA president).

In my book, undoubtedly, Clinton was the worst president since the worst side of FDR. Clinton enabled plutocracy more than any other president. G.W. Bush just pursued it, with amateurish lying. Amateurish relative to Clinton’s. Clinton is such a good liar that, to this day, most Americans love to believe him. 

Kennedy deserves his popularity. He was neither a liar nor a coward: he took responsibility for the Bay Of Pigs invasion and then he refused to double up on the error by sending US regular forces to help. JFK, helped by his brother, did not hesitate to use force to make the Mafia, the racists, and even the Nazi connected CIA bend (that may have cost him his life). 

LBJ imposed anti-racism laws, and the “Great Society” (now being dismantled). There were other great presidents: even Hoover launched great works. Truman finished the Second World War with gusto (bluffing the crazed Japanese High Command into submission with two quick nuclear strikes). Eisenhower  brought up taxes on the rich to 93%. Even Carter named Volcker, who broke inflation (allowing Reagan to rip the profits).

Teddy Roosevelt broke the monopolies. FDR was great in many ways: public works, WWII, and… the Banking Act of 1933 (aka “Glass-Steagall”).

So what is Clinton most famous for? Intervening in Rwanda? (No, the French army did that.) Intervening in Yugoslavia? (Sure, but the British and especially the French, under UN mandate, had stood in harm’s way, for years before that.) No, Clinton is famous for his “good” economy: 8 years of bubble, thanks to Greenspan, Rubin, Summers. The committee to ruin the world.

What did they do? Destroy Roosevelt’s most important work, the Banking Act of 1933.  That enabled the biggest banks to run amok.

As Obama’s most important act , so far, has been to prevent “Medicare For All“, by using the smokescreen of Obamacare. (“We should have done ‘Single Payer'” just admitted that high class liar, Nancy Pelosi… Let me rather suggest doing Hara-Kiri.) It was therefore only natural that he offered the Medal of Freedom to that other great right wing president, Bill Clinton.

History will judge both of these “democratic” president to be followers of Reagan. But strikingly more to his right. As they presented themselves as progressives, that means they deserve the Medal of Freedom from Truth. Indeed.

I confess I find Oprah Winfrey gross. Her speciality seems to be emotional diarrhea. Formed as a “black” beauty queen, she rose quickly in the celebrity circus. She periodically appears to make outrageous statements of the most violent racist nature. Here she is on the BBC, November 15, 2013:

WINFREY: “Are there still places where people are terrorized because of the color of their skin, because of the color of their black skin? Yes… I said this, you know, for apartheid South Africa, I said this for my own, you know, community in the south – there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and THEY JUST HAVE TO DIE.”

If they just have to die, maybe she can ask her friend Obama to spare a few drones?

BBC’s Gompertz: “…has it ever crossed your mind that some of the treatment of Obama and the challenges he’s faced… if he was a white guy, those wouldn’t have happened, he wouldn’t have been treated in quite the same way, he wouldn’t have to deal with quite the same confrontations?”

Patrice Ayme: Indeed, BBC! Obama would never have been elected if he had been a “white guy“, so he would not have had to suffer as president, challenged and confronted.

WINFREY: “Has it ever crossed my mind? It’s crossed my mind probably as many times as it’s crossed your mind. Probably it’s crossed my mind more times than it’s crossed your mind. Just the level of disrespect. When the Senator yelled out, “You’re a liar.” Remember that? Yeah, I think that there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs, and that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African-American.”

It was not a Senator, but a Representative. The White House admitted in the last week, that it deliberately decided to lie about Obamacare, after debating the pros and cons of the lying (!). For months.

The “disrespect for the office” may come from the increasing feeling that this office ought to be disrespected. After all, taxation through representation is not real democracy, just a parody, and increasingly that way for all to see. Watch the negotiations for the Trans Pacific Partnership between three  government officials and six hundred lobbyists. The meta knowledge that, the government engages in deliberate lying, does not help. Many know that lying as a method of government was tried before.

Her stupendous wealth not having been serviced with enough perceived deference by an employee of a Zürich store, Oprah Winfrey’s flew back in her personal jet to the USA,

Winfrey appeared on “Larry King” (not his real name: basically all is false in USA media; his name is Zeiger). Larry King is “worth” more than 150 millions, and Oprah Winfrey, the queen of race and abuse, three billions. American media is all about extremely rich people interviewing filthy rich people, whose “worth” is only measured in money. OK, let’s not be unfair about Zeiger’s worth: he was married 8 times.

Winfrey, you have to understand, is, on the (admittedly tiny) mental scale of the USA the equivalent of a celebrity intellectual, the Albert Camus of the USA, imperishable author of slave’s truths such as:  “The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work”. Work, get it? To go well with Reagan’s claim that all jobs are equally worthy. Or this: “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness. The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.”

The slaves in Zurich had the wrong attitude when the American queen showed up, and they were not afraid.

Oprah faced Larry King, with her ineffable self-satisfied smirk. With a smile, Larry King, that master of the straw man and the red herring, asked the multibillionaire about racism. “Oh, it’s around, Larry”, said the queen of quick and dirty philosophy, an Ayn Rand for the 21st century. Winfrey was beaming with pride, happiness and a smug smile, hardly contained: her preferred subject! If was as if racism was one of the best things that ever happened to her.

I was looking at her, and I thought: this is so strange, how come the public cannot see it? Racism makes that woman happy. How could it be that racism is the best thing that seems to be happening to her? Then why does she complain that it is done to her? Is she into emotional ad-lib sadomasochism? Could it be that racism is her bottom line? Psychologically and business-wise?

Is Winfrey popular because a large part of the mentality in the USA is sadomasochist? Is sadomasochism the mentality symbiotic to plutocracy? When in Rome, do as the Romans, debased and cruel, the more the plutocracy grows?

Winfrey proceeded to make racist allegations against Europeans in general. European bashing is a most important notion among USA plutocrats: by demonstrating that European are base, racist creatures, they implicitly allege that’s what lack of respect for money leads to. It demonstrates the superiority of the American system, where racism completely honorable, as long as it is connected to money. (Come to think of it, that’s how it started in the Barbarous Years.)

Thus, did Winfrey’s racism earn her the Medal of Freedom? What else? Imperishable quotes such as: “Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.” (She should know: pregnant at 14, her only son died shortly afterwards.) Or her allegations of sexual and other abuse against her entire family, denied by her entire family?

One of my faithful and long-suffering commenter interjected:”Patrice, I completely disagree with you.”

To protect this person’s identity, we will call her NV (for Naive Victim). NV insisted:“You are talking about maybe 30 minutes in a millennia of racism. Until equal is equal no one can talk shit. Sorry.”

So we deserve a millennia of racism from Winfrey and her ilk, because kings in Africa sold slaves? Come again?

And that was not 30 minutes, that Winfrey show, but a real campaign: the billionaire queen went around no less than the six most major venues in the USA to instill the notion of exuberant European racism. A pattern with her over the years.

As we saw above, she appears to incite murder, on racial ground, and then, logically enough, the droning Obama gives her a medal.

Who sows racism, harvests racism. As simple as that.
