Trump, Macron Don’t Understand The First Thing

July 25, 2017

Trump, Macron Didn’t Understand the First Thing these times need: the right emotions, moods, ideas. And those can only spring from democracy. But what contemporaries call democracy, isn’t democratic enough to ripe the fruits of the democratic process. PR. Public Relations, is PC, Politically Correct, but not brainy enough.

Who are these arrogant would-be alpha apes who claim, to themselves, and to us, as loudly as they can, that they can lead humanity? OK, the Constitutions say so. But doesn’t that mean they should be changed? Apparently, the alpha males in a rut, have a large following in the USA and France. The French Army Chief of Staff resigned: he said no man should be followed blindly.

That provision was finally installed in the Bundeswehr’s Constitution. German soldiers’ obedience is now to the Constitution, not the “leader” (guide, Führer…) the same should be made clear to US soldiers.

Trump and Macron have huge military power at their disposal. No single man should have such powers.

What is the country spending the most on the military? The USA, in part by cheating on what “deficit” means (or, to put it milder, by defining the “deficit” completely differently from the way the European Union does. France spends more on the military than Russia, but still it’s not enough: at this point on France rests the defense of the entire European continent from Africa and the Middle East, where a religion has made the place so bad, nobody wants to live there anymore. Much better to bring the mess to Europe, where it’s still clean.

The way for France to pay for it’s military is to do like the USA: with a colossal deficit (no, not the one they talk about, the other one!)

In some ways, Macron is the French Trump. In other ways, Macron is the French Obama: he met with singer Bono yesterday, and is exchanging educational tips with Rihanna, a pseudo-singer, or pseudo-thinker (about how others hold her hips), famous for holding her chest in place during “music” videos, and other Crazy Horse Saloon antics… No activity is ridiculous enough to prevent Macron to luridly engage in it. 

Indeed a French Trump: consider the banking connection. Macron came out of nowhere, to be showered with money, many millions of dollars,  even housing, by bankers.  Trump came out of his father’s wealth to become much more, thanks to bankers, who showered him with money.

The global plutocratic elite “hates” Trump because Trump is a loud mouth, an elephant in a porcelain store. The elite is deadly afraid that Trump will make global plutocracy obvious. Thus the global plutocratic elite much prefer Macron: Macron looks like a meritocrat, when, actually, his main merit was to become the man of plutocrats and bankers, who see in him a new Jesus. 

The Economist has found a watchdog it loves. Unfortunately, the way Macron is going, that won’t last… He walks on water, but will finish like May (the leopard shoes sticking out in the background).

France’s military chief of staff,  five-star general General Pierre De Villiers, quit, in a loud and very public spat. Emmanuel Macron had declared that defense spending would go down 850 million Euros, after making a campaign where he claimed he would augment military spending by a considerable 12%.

The French Republic is at war in Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Chad, Syria, Iraq. In the last 40 years, the French military was deployed in 70 combat operations.

Macron didn’t say to the French military:”I am your leader”, as The Economist pretends he did, by mis-translating “chef”. Macron said:”Je suis votre chef” (“I am your CHIEF”).  Do we need a tribal chief, millennia after tribes were rejected as optimal governance?

Macron clearly lied: he said he would augment military spending. As clearly needed, right way. Instead he slashed the military budget. It looks like the screwing of someone who likes to screw people. (Since then the military budget would have been re-established, and then some; a good way to economize would be to withdraw the French military from its operation inside France, which is costly and ridiculous; outlawing nasty Salafist Islam is the way to go.)

This incident also denotes that Macron has understood nothing. Nothing at all. Macron understood nothing at all of what ails the West most. The lack of democracy.

What ails the West most is the lack of democracy. One can’t have democracy, when inequality is too great. Clearly, little chief Macron intents to magnify said inequality further. Usually, when people talk inequality, they evoke the number of the wealthiest versus the number of the poorest, and how far they are. But the ancient Greeks would have looked at something else when quantifying democracy: the lack of isegoria (lack of equality in publicly addressing the People’s Assembly, the Ecclesia). The lack of isegoria would have been viewed as part of a more general lack of isonomy (equality management). In any case, No isegoria, no democracy.

Lack of democracy has led our world to disastrous decisions in economic and sociological matters. It has also led to massive, runaway inequality. Macron was brought to power by the explicit intervention of “adoptive fathers”, such as David Rothschild, who indirectly gave Macron millions, while another plutocrats (lent and) gave him a million Euro apartment in Paris, when Macon was basically a babe. But a babe who had direct oversight on taxing the plutocrats, including Banque Rothschild, which then employed Emmanuel Macron.

Obama didn’t do much, if anything, of what he claimed he would do. Instead, his tenure served the plutocrats. And the proof is that inequality has never been so great in the USA. The case of Macron is clearer: he clearly became “chief” as an instrument of the wealthiest, dirtiest few who have fed him like a hungry baby crocodile. When voters realize the  crocodile is just that, a crocodile, growing fast claiming he leads humanity, they will see only barbarity in his whole tenure. Fear the streets. And the army will not rush to Macron’s rescue.

We don’t need to be led by self-aggrandizing psychopaths. We need to be led by the best emotions, moods, and ideas. Clearly, having Macron or Trump as “chiefs” to obey blindly is not one of them.

Everything is wrong with civilization nowadays: the poles are melting, and fast (ice VOLUME is collapsing in the Arctic; some will scoff; however I was evacuated from my house by a giant fire, this essay is written under mental distress, knowing landscapes I loved just burned out to a crisp… the fire is still going on: “austerity” made it so that there were not enough anti-fire planes…). Our great leaders organized all that.

Common people pay lots of taxes, so that, and because, billionaires pay none. Some then sung: all you need is love, all important things in the world are free. Right. Until you realize this: Macron’s educational adviser is Rihanna, the one who holds her chest, as a new form of dancing with self.

The wealthiest people in the world have so much money, so so much power, that they have made, and are making ever more, most people so incredibly stupid, they have no idea what’s going on. They are like bleating sheep going to slaughter. Watch those lesser beings get so thrilled about “sports”, namely tribal frenzies.

Common people pay lots of taxes, so that, and because, billionaires tell them how to think, how not to think, and even how to feel. This is not 1984 anymore, it’s worse.

USA, Rogue Nation, To Biosphere:”You Are Fired!”

June 1, 2017

Yes, Trump says:”You are fired!” to the biosphere. It is funny to those who have a macabre sense of humor. To this firing, the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Junker replied that Trump didn’t understand things, in particular, the law.

Europe’s duty is to say: it’s not like that,” Juncker said. “The Americans can’t just leave the climate protection agreement. Mr. Trump believes that because he doesn’t know the details.” Juncker also noted the lengths European leaders had gone to in trying to explain the Paris accord to Trump while in Taormina, Italy, at the G7 summit. “We tried to explain that to Mr. Trump in Taormina in clear German sentences,” Juncker said. “It seems that our attempt failed, but the law is the law, and it must be obeyed. Not everything which is law and not everything in international agreements is fake news, and we have to comply with it.

Trump pulls out of the Paris Climate accord to, he said, “to pursue a new deal which preserves our country”. Several times in his speech, Trump fired broadsides at the city of Paris (obviously the youth, and intellectual dominance of French president Macron rubbed him the wrong way, something not improved when Macron invited Putin at Versailles, the next day, 300 years to the day, after the Czar Peter the Great visited (with his harem) . Russia piously announced, as Xi did, that Russia stayed with Paris.

US Secret Service is not amused. US comedian Kathy Griffin this week.
The cut head depicts the quality of the debate in the USA. Instead of advancing constructive solutions, the opposition to Trump is turning to Jihad. I have nothing against smart Jihad for the highest causes. However, this is not what is going-on. Most of the opposition to Trump seems to want to cut off his head, and little else crosses their mind, aside from this burning desire. However the maximal US oil production, and the maximal US fossil fuel burning we are experiencing now, were not caused by Trump, but by previous governance and social behaviors, some generations old. Trump, in more ways than one, depicts the US all too well…

In turn, the preceding comedian’s employer, CNN, chopped her off…

Several times, Trump went on a litany of American cities that “it’s time to put ahead of Paris, France.” Including Pittsburgh, who Trump wants to put ahead of Paris. Pittsburgh voted 80% for Hillary Clinton… Trump’s Paris condemnations were a funny mish mash of French bashing, climate bashing and America First. Actually, I am unfair: Trump was careful not to bash the climate. His argument is, in part, that the Paris accord will make a reduction of temperature corresponding with two weeks of Chinese pollution (besides being false, this is silly, because the Paris Accord was more of a mood than a very precise planning.)

What Trumpists are saying, and there is some validity to it, is that the US reduced its per capita CO2 emissions by 18% from its peak. However, temperature change from Paris according to MIT would be 2/10 of degree Centigrade by 2100, add the exalted Trumpists. Even the Secretary of State, Tillerson, let it be known that he viewed quitting Paris was a mistake, the US would have gotten more by staying inside..

Trump could pull out of the United Nations in ALL environmental matters. In one year. Barring this, pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord will take so long that it will become effective only under the next US President. The Paris Climate Accord was signed by ALL of the planets countries, 197 countries. Except for Syria and Nicaragua. Nicaragua wanted a STRONGER Paris accord, and is expected to sign. Syria had no representation at Paris at the time because of civil war.

All the world’s countries came together on climate. Trump says it does not matter. Tribalism is what counts, and tribalism is pricky. Trump is afraid other countries were going “to laugh” at the USA. Like the average angry domineering chimp, he had to do something crazy to show everybody that nobody laughs at him. (It seems the opposite is happening!)

That seems to be a psychological mistake. All what the US is now saying is that having a rogue nation is a good thing. So does that mean that North Korea is a good thing? The US is also saying it does not mind going rogue. First strike on north Korea?

The USA’s economic and then general dominance has been greatly due to being the world number one user of energy. Why? Because the USA is full of cheap energy, especially oil, and now gas. All these fossil fuels to burn in that good healthy terrestrial air. That made the USA the world’s most powerful nation, literally. That also made the USA the world’s most polluting nation.  

Right now the US oil production is the greatest ever. Ever. And it’s still augmenting. Why? Cheap energy. How? Fracking.

Fracking was not a new technology, but it exploded when the price of oil went up to $150 a barril. How did that happen? The Iraq war.

Now what?

The Paris Accord had two faces. One was PC: it was Politically Correct to transfer 100 billion dollars to poor countries, a sort of hush money. Many countries will disappear under the ocean, though, because the other aspect of the paris Accord came short. Under Paris, CO2 emissions would keep on augmenting, at least short term. The danger being that we reach the point where the warming feeds on itself. And we are very close to it; my most catastrophic predictions made in the distant past are now proffered by a few official scientists.

So what to do?

To mitigate the climate crisis, we need a global carbon tax. Anything else is amusement and PC self-serving make-belief.

The problems Trump instill with his rejection of Paris is that he sets a negative mood. However, they have the interest to point out a general mentality in the governing spheres of the USA, which I have long pointed out…

Because Trump didn’t do this alone. Obama was unable to ratify the Paris Accord and weakened it, because there is a long tradition in the USA of “America First”, Devil may care. This, I have long claimed, led to machinations which made both World War One and World War Two possible: had US opposition to fascist germany been made clear, Germany would not have been crazy enough to engage in war the two countries which gave birth to the USA, namely France (twice, directly and indirectly) and Britain. Instead, mood setting ancestors of Trump maneuvered to make Germany believe they would support its craziest ways.

Now we can see the US the way it really has long been: as a rogue nation, ready to anything to gain a bit of greed, here and there. Pathetic, but revealing.

Hope? Yes. Renegotiate, world against the USA, but this time throw a carbon tax into the mix. Trump threw the gauntlet, knights in shining armor will pick it up…

Trump: Deradicalize Islam. Good.

May 21, 2017

Remember that whereas an army marches on its stomach, a people is ruled by its mind, and minds can be fabricated industrially. Except for tiny soap boxes such as yours truly, the media in the West is controlled, or owned, by the world’s wealthiest people. And wealth is power.

Trump gave a speech in Saudi Arabia to an assembly comprising 50 “Muslim majority countries” heads of state. A Muslim friend of mine heard the beginning of the discourse and concluded:”He put some water in his wine!” Which is French for getting reasonable.

But I expected no less. Trump was not doing his first foreign trip, starting with Arabia, to call for a Muslim ban. But his message was nevertheless radical. Trump basically called to de-radicalize Islam. That may look innocuous, but de-radicalize means to tear of the roots. There are practical ways to do it, fast.

Flower Power! Oh My Terrifically Great Friends Again Thanks For These Gigantically Beautiful Blossoms! President Franklin Delano Roosevelt Radicalized Islam In 1945. At Great Bitter lake. Me, Trump Shall Deradicalize Islam Now. Saudi King Salman on the right. Real king Ibn Salman, his son, on the left. US Nuke Officer Hidden Behind Trump.

To understand the plot between plutocrat FDR, Wall Street, Oil Men, and Saudi Arabia Founder, the colossal warrior, Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, one needs to be aware of the Great Bitter Lake conspiracy:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/great-bitter-lake/

(That plot was established days after FDR gave half of Europe to Stalin at Yalta, not so much to make Stalin strong, but rather to make Europe weak.)

A picture can teach a thousand ideas. Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump went all over the highest spheres of Saudi Arabia, glamorous hair all out. Here is Melania Trump visiting a school in Riyadh.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2015/01/10/how-plutocracy-fosters-islamism/

Obama gave a speech in Cairo, at the beginning of his eight years of service to the established order.Obama’s pseudo-intellectual claim::”Islam is great!”, a cosmetic change from “God is great!”, the rallying cry of the radical Muslims. Islam is great because Islam invented all this things which, actually came from Greece, Persia, India, etc. Obama insisted that he knew “as a student of history… civilization’s debt to Islam was great”. “Islam“, said Obama, “carried the light of learning through many centuries and paved the way for Europe’s Renaissance and the Enlightenment” These are basically lies: contrarily to what Obama claimed, Arabs did not “invent the order of algebra“. The (mostly) transmitter of that Greco-Indian knowledge was from Central Asia! The (part) inventor of the Zero AL KHWARIZMI was from present day Uzbekistan,  nearly 3,000 Kilometers from Saudi Arabia. Attributing algebra To “Islam” is even more stupid than attributing Analytic Geometry To Christianism!

Obama utterances were devised to sound educated, but they are conducive to a mood which is all lies. Basically Obama was trying to persuade us that religious obscurantism is conducive to intellectual enlightenment. It’s total poison, which has poisoned Western minds, ever since the Western plutocrats determined that there were few things better to make us all stupid…

From left to right, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, first lady Melania Trump, and U.S. President Donald Trump open the Global Center for Combating Extremist Absolutely Beautiful And Touching! Just One Caveat: All New And All Superior Thinking Always Starts Extreme!

Trump’s deradicalization proposition is more correct than Obama’s hypocritical professiorally professed admiration..

Christianism was deradicalized: this enabled civilization to take off again. Deradicalization did not happen in five minutes: it started when the Franks established a secularist emperor, a school teacher. That was well before the end of the Fourth Century.

Christian deradicalization is nearly complete.

Good.

Took 16 centuries.

High time to do Islam now.

What moral right do we have to? Well, our distant ancestors had a hand in Islam, because, if nothing else, Christianism mentored Islamism. Then, of course, Islam conquered half of the Greco-Roman empire in a few decades. Islam did so because it was so radical.

Four centuries later, the Turks converted to Islam. Islam, radical Qur’an version, says that if one dies, fighting for Islam God, one goes to sit next to Islam God thereafter (what’s the difference between that and a sort of denied homosexuality?). In any case, Islamized warriors are as dangerous as they can get (short of being clever, of course!). The Turks moved thousands of miles, and, in a few decades conquered all. Or, at least Armenia, Kurdistan, Anatolia. The rest of the Middle East, including Arabia, and then North Africa, followed.

All very good, but then the Qur’an Fascist Principle (S4; v59) says all dictators should be obeyed as if they were Muhammad (that gave an opening to Sufi, Philosophical, Islam, and, more prosaically, Islam as dictatorship).

Now, of course, with modern weapons, peace is not a choice, but a necessity.

Yes, time to de-radicalize.

And how to de-radicalize? First, top intellectuals have to realize that radical, literal, fundamental Islam is as much a catastrophe as radical, literal, fundamental Christianism, which is basically synonymous with the Dark Ages, of which it was part, cause and consequence. That will change the mood importantly. Arabia has to understand that fossil fuels are on their way out, and it may happen much faster than expected: desalination using massive energy from photovoltaics can keep Arabia livable, but then what to do? Well, become more intellectual, as Abu Dhabi is already trying to do. Clearly a superstitious obscurantist interpretation of a Dark Age religion is in the way.

Secondly, radicalization has proceeded from TV channels such as Al Jazeera. I have linked to Al Jazeera more than once on this site: it has some good articles. But it also has horrendous fundamentalist, knife between the teeth, preachers. Time to change this. All the Fundamentalist, Wahhabist, extreme Islamism transit through Western owned and launched telecommunications satellites, a vivid demonstration of Western plutocracy and Fundamental Islam of the worst type.

De-radicalization of Islam has to go through the domestication of many a Western plutocratic individual or institution. No doubt the media, owned by the same “moral” persons, will find therein another secret reason to hate Donald Trump even more…

Muslim potentates should mull all this carefully: they, too, are being manipulated!

Unwise, and Mass Criminal, To Encourage North Korean Nuclear Blackmail

April 11, 2017

… By doing nothing, as pinhead, pseudo-“pacifists” recommand.

For 8 years, G.W. Bush did nothing, but to invade a country he should have left alone (Iraq) and mismanage the justified invasion of another (Afghanistan). OK, I am unfair, Bush were wealthier those who mass-produced weapons Then the Manchurian, some will say Hawaiian, or Kenyan candidate was parachuted, and expanded with gusto G. W. Bush financial policies of generalized corruption, making the richest, even richer (just look at the graph of inequality I published here; this logically should have made “democrats” hate Obama even more than Bush. But they loved both.)

Obama and Bush did nothing for the world military situation: Putin invaded Georgia under Bush, then Ukraine, under Obama. North Korea pursued its project of being able to blackmail the entire planet with thermonuclear tipped ICBMs.  

US Is Sending This Carrier Fleet, To Encourage the Chinese and Monster Kim, to Think Better. A nuclear attack submarine or two accompanies the fleet, below, to defend the fleet against enemy subs. Aegis anti-missile cruiser is in the lead. Missiles on board of the Aegis cruiser can take down satellites, thus, hopefully, ballistic missiles.

Some military analysts say that, within two years, nuclear tipped North Korean ICBMs could be within range of Seattle.

Pacifists will whine:’Let it be!’ Just as they use to whine:’Let Mr. Hitler be!’ In practice, it meant, let Hitler encourage, launch and cause a war which killed one hundred million people (because Japan attacked China, full-bore, in 1937, well after it became a member of the formidable “Axis”, with fascist Italy and Nazi Germany; thus the alliance with mighty, unopposed Nazi Germany encouraged imperial Japan to boldly engage in massive war criminality, by going on a total war of aggression, on the grandest scale. 

Let it be? In the name of what? Certainly not in the name of security. Certainly not in the name of the better angels of our nature. So in the name of what? Amor fati? Masochism?  

Instead the time has come to finally fight for the best values. Syria used to be the richest part of the Roman empire. Then the Arab Muslim army vanquished the main Roman field army, astoundingly. It was an interference of circumstances which favored the Arabs. However, they jumped on the occasion: parties of Arab cavalry were sent all over Syria, killing all men who could bear weapons. The idea was to prevent the Roman state to draft another army.

So the Arabs won the war, and established their divisive rule for the next 13 centuries. Under Islam, the ideology of the Arab conquerors, whose God speak only Arabic, the Middle East went from being the world’s richest region, to the poorest, and more divided, divisive, impotent, feudal. Like an incontinent old man, it even fell under the rules of the Turkish sultans, until the French and British put an end to that degeneracy.

Syria used to be the West, with Western values, much of them created there, actually, until the Christian theocrats took over, establishing the Dark Ages. Time to re-impose those values, because the world is too small for civilization and the passions of savages.

We saw this last night, when savage Afghan refugees attacked Kurdish refugees in French refugee camp with thousands of wood cabins. The whole place burned down. The refugees all want to go to Great Britain, because they often have family there, and Great Britain has no identification paper, and welcome slave labor (or used to).

So now Trump wants to forbid barrel bombs in Syria, a speciality of the bloody plutocrat Al Assad. Trump also is starting to accuse the Russians to have known about the Sarin nerve agent Assad used. Pacifists are going to whine, again. But what did they do when Bachar Al Assad created the Islamist State, and when Al Assad killed half a million, and when plutocrat Al Assad launched 12 million refugees (including three millions in Turkey alone)?

Answer: pacifists just whined, and struck poses, in which to admire each other..

Verily, those “pacifists” are the worse of the low. They were Hitler’s most important collaborators, inside Germany, and outside.

Well, real men don’t struck poses, they don’t struck poses with malefactors, as if they were runway models, look how bad he is, look how good I look, as Obama did. Lest evil takes the world over.  

***

Kim of North Korea gave his uncle, alive, to hungry dogs. His uncle had put Kim in power. The dogs took an hour to put the elderly uncle to death. This things are better swallowed slowly. At least another five associates went down the dogs gullets. Since then Kim has killed generals, chief of security, defense minister, his half-brother, women and children relatives, using all sorts of means, including anti-aircraft guns and VX nerve agent.

As I wrote before, Kim would prefer to die in a thermonuclear blaze of glory, than slowly torn to pieces (remember Li Si!). He has nothing to lose. He is coming.

On September 3, 1939, the French Republic declared war to Nazi Germany (and thus implicitly to Hitler’s close and explicit allies: Japan, Italy, the Soviet Union). That required guts. And brains: Hitler wanted his world war with new weapons only, in 1945. Instead, thanks to French aggressivity, in 1945, the Nazi Reich was destroyed.

 

More morality from this story?

The surprise, although ephemeral, victory of the Nazis in May 1940 was mostly due to the fact the sister Republic, the USA, treacherously refused to get involved, even with simple barking (in spite of US “guarantees” to France: FDR was a manipulative plutocrat who hated the socialist guts of the French Third Republic, which had been headed by a Jew, Blum; a constant of the FDR presidency was continual maximum hostility to France; FDR had actually planned to occupy France in 1944, but was prevented to do so by the French army, and the fact FDR’s own generals depended upon said French army!)

This time, the US is in the Spitze, at the point, defending the better values.

Good.

(Socialist) France is momentarily busy with presidential elections, but has given her support (in a join statement with conservative German republic…

All very good.

World government can work, if, and only if, malefactors and the evil they secrete, is contained.

Of all the better values, the ultimate one is survival.

So dog eat people nuclear blackmail with San Francisco in two years?

Won’t happen.

Syria’s Assad Struck Because Pacifist Fundamentalism Leads To Horror

April 7, 2017

Good people will want to, have always wanted to, strike down Syria’s Assad and North Korea’s Kim. Pacifist fundamentalism is worse than an hypocrisy. It brings not just death, but the apocalypse (consider Nazism).

In August 2013, French pilots were in their seats in their fully armed planes, ready to strike Assad, when Obama lost his nerve, or got a call from one of his masters, decided to be worse than a hypocrite. Obama decided it was OK, after all, to use neurotoxic weapons such as Sarin to kill thousands, including children. Neurotoxic weapons against cities can only kill innocent people, such as children.

A Few Of The Hundreds Of Children Assassinated By Nerve Gas In 2013 By War Criminal and Criminal Against Humanity Assad. In Just One Single Attack In Damas (and there hundreds of such attacks). Unsure About Playing Knight In Shining Armor, Or Maybe Paid to Do So, Obama Lost His Nerve At The Last Minute. He Claimed To Stay Cool, Watching This, When He Had the Means to Punish It, and Thus Became A Smirking Accomplice of It. In A Way, It’s Worse Than What Happened In The Nazi Extermination Camps, Because We Had No Picture Of Exterminated Children!

By way of comparison with Assad and Obama, Adolf Hitler, not a humanitarian of renown, decided, in 1945 NOT to use neurotoxic weapons against his ferocious enemies, who were determined, and had declared officially, that they would not stop until they had annihilated Nazi Germany. Nazi stocks of gases such as Sarin were enough to kill dozens of millions, and the Nazi had the means to bring those gases over the targets (Western armies, London, Paris, etc.). In spite of the fact using the neurotoxins could have been imagined by the most crazed Nazis as a way to bring the war to a standstill, the Nazis did not consider using them.

The top Nazis knew all too well that the British, if no one else, would reply in kind. This sort of tit for tat had happened in 1940. The Nazis devastated Coventry. The Brits replied in kind, on a much greater scale. Rightly so.

This is why Hitler did not go fully neurotoxic in 1945.

Trump fired 59 cruise missiles at the Shariat Assad air base in Syria which fired the neurotoxins.

Good.

Barack Obama and the plutocrats in London (who are friends of Bachar El Assad) let humanity down in 2013. Civilization needs to be defended.

It’s telling that Trump, so vomited upon by the pseudo-progressives, is the one defending civilization, whereas their puppet president, who was the object of a cult by the plutocrats that be, did nothing which could upset the enemies of civilization, his, de facto, friends.  Trump’s action is an excellent message for all those who believe they can scare civilization into submission. An excellent way to set up the right context with President Xi of the People Republic of China, visiting the US president at Mar a Lago this weekend, reminding him that civilization without a great wall cannot be defended. But now civilization is one, and the great wall has to be in the minds.

There are great walls which cannot be crossed, because they ought not to be crossed, and the usage of weapons of mass destruction against civilian populations is one of them.

Trump: US “Not innocent…Got A Lot Of Killers”

February 8, 2017

Ask pseudo-democrats and pseudo-leftists, so noisy nowadays, and they will speak as if the history of the USA in the Middle East started on 9/11. They will generally not know that 9/11 was engineered by an Islamist conspiracy initially instigated by the USA. (Actually several Islamist conspiracies were instigated and entangled by the US Deep State; the main engineers were “Democratic” presidents Roosevelt and Carter.)

Please consider, for Carter’s villainous attack:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/usa-attack-against-afghanistan/

Yes, Carter killed millions, in the end. The war he and his goons directly engineered killed at least two million Afghans, five million refugees, and turned the country into an Islamist nightmare. And that was just the beginning. Millions more would die, in further consequences of great humanist Carter’s exploits. Carter can go, build houses with his bare hands to look good helping the poor: hopefully, history will nail him and his ilk.

Using Islam as a modern weapon of mass destruction, was, partly, an US idea (expanding on the genius of the Saudi family, associated with Wahhabism, Literal Islam, since the 1700s…) President Roosevelt was that engineer, in his last strategy, before he croaked, and after giving half of Europe to Stalin (divide and conquer!)

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/great-bitter-lake/

After Destroying the Democratic Republic in Afghanistan, the US turned it into an Islamist State, Similar to Saudi Arabia. After 9/11, the USS recreated an Islamist Republic in Afghanistan, as it Had In Pakistan Next Door.

Jews! The French! In Afghanistan! What of the US? After Destroying the Democratic Republic in Afghanistan, the US turned it into an Islamist State, Similar to Saudi Arabia. After 9/11, the USS recreated an Islamist Republic in Afghanistan, as it Had In Pakistan Next Door.

Young US citizens are imprinted to believe that “conspiracy theorists” are deranged, and to stay away from them. Thus US youth stay away from any representation of a conspiracy. Their appreciation of history is reduced to screaming USA USA USA USA. Or if of the pseudo-democratic indoctrination, nowadays, to call everybody they don’t understand a “racist” (just as the Nazis did!)

When someone set to move the world, that someone is never alone, though. And, especially when they are up to no good, their mindset is not for the whole world to know. Instead they together-breathe (con-spirare) with a small group.

Example: the US government secretly decided to attack the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan in the 1970s. Afghanistan had been previously peaceful, open, safe. However the potential development of its mineral riches by French and Russian interests threatened US hegemony. Notice that this was not about Afghanistan itself. It was about the US fighting France and Russia.

So the US unleashed the Islamist Republic of Pakistan’s ISI. When that was not enough, Carter ordered the CIA to attack the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan (July 3, 1979) and then Saudi Arabia, and, finally Ben Laden.

The “official” reason given to the French by the Carter National Security Adviser, was that Islamism would destroy the USSR. Knowing there was a defense treaty between the Soviet Union and the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan made the Carted White House confident that the USSR would be drawn in. From the point of view of the Carter and then Reagan White Houses, attacking elementary schools for girls was a sure method to draw the Russians in (yes, Afghani elementary schools for girls were recommended even as a target for Bin Laden’s goons).

Before the full-scale US attack on the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, the country was definitively not Islamist. Consider the “Old Jew” of Picasso, in French, as an Afghan national stamp (above). 

Notice the US used Islamism as a weapon. First through Pakistan, then through the CIA, then through Saudi Arabia, then through Ben Laden.

This is why the US Deep State was careful not to punish the Saudis for 9/11: the Saudis were acting as tools for the US. Some mercenaries (GIA, Bin Laden) went rogue. So what? It always happens with mercenaries: consider Carthage (and what happened to Carthage when its mercenaries rebelled during the Second Punic War). Consider the European Middle Ages, when rogues mercenaries constituted entire armies. (Moreover, the GIA inflicted damage to Algeria and France, which is always a good thing for part of the mentality of the US Deep State inherited from Roosevelt!)

US support for Islamism has consequences. Just to consider the case of Algeria, the so-called war of independence killed a million, and the second war, in the 1990s, against the GIA (Groupe Islamist Arme’) killed 200,000. The GIA guys trained in Afghanistan. The Franco-Algerian civil war was the long born fruit of Roosevelt’s hatred for the French empire. Roosevelt wished to replace it by the US empire; and overall make the European influence world into a US dependency (FDR was very explicit on this to his baffled aides, who did not get the plutocratic picture; differently from FDR, who was a top plutocrat, from a dynasty of plutocrats)

We have to face what we want to change. Here is an interview of the US insurgent president, two weeks in his presidency:

O’Reilly (FOX News): Do you respect Putin?

President Trump: I do respect him but —

O’Reilly: Do you? Why?

Trump: Well, I respect a lot of people but that doesn’t mean I’m going to get along with him. He’s a leader of his country. I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all over the world — that’s a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea.

O’Reilly: But he’s a killer though. Putin’s a killer.

Trump: There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you think — our country’s so innocent. You think our country’s so innocent?

O’Reilly: I don’t know of any government leaders that are killers.

Trump: Well — take a look at what we’ve done too. We made a lot of mistakes. I’ve been against the war in Iraq from the beginning.

O’Reilly: But mistakes are different than —

Trump: A lot of mistakes, but a lot of people were killed. A lot of killers around, believe me.

***

What you can’t face, you can’t change. Trump is facing US governmental criminality.

This is an important step. Forward. Progress.

What you can’t face, you can’t change.

Pseudo-leftists on plutocratic payroll, reaching new heights of dishonesty, already construed the preceding as Trump’s support for Putin! How unreal can one get?

Real leftists can only approve president Trump’s admission about the culpability of the US. Above I explained how Carter engineered the war in Afghanistan (not just for hegemony, but also as a continuation of the Pakistan policy of the US, itself meant to handicap India). In many essays, I have exposed the abysmal machinations of the US Deep State, ever since June 1914. Those machinations helped make the US (white) population the richest in the world. To function properly, they had to kill millions of people, as James Baldwin also said.

Actually, the number of people killed was rather in the dozens of millions; see the wealth of details I rolled out to explain how the US plutocracy turned World War One and World War Two into cash cows… After crucially instigating them, just so.

Many cans of worms the ruling plutocracy wants the rabble never to visit: they explain too much, otherwise mysterious and crazy, history. Trump’s revisiting of history, from a more realistic angle, is something plutocracy, cannot live with. Literally. For realists who want progress out of today’s morass, it’s the exact opposite.

So, indeed, Trump is fessing up. What is there, for true progressives, not to like?

Trump Attacks Establishment

January 22, 2017

At least with his lips… Media Plutocracy Outraged 

Once upon a time in Oahu, president-elect Obama, standing a foot away, invited me to a family event. What happened next I will reveal fully in the far future.  Let me put it succinctly: other actors surprised us with a vicious little plot to turn the invitation into a deep trauma for all involved. Such is the pull of power lust. Such is the greed of the establishment. I thought I had seen everything before, still I was astounded, completely unprepared. Eight years later I am still baffled. (Several divorces came out of it, BTW.)

Chris Hedges, long a star, Pulitzer winning, journalist at the New York Times points out in his latest book, that the Pulitzer is completely rigged by the New York Times itself (by financing the advisor, the Columbia School of Journalism). Wikipedia crows that the “NYT won 117 Pulitzer prizes more than any news organization”. This self-reinforcing glorification is typical of the way the establishment works: by rigging carefully the entire system (the Sulzberger family controlling the Times since 1896; recently government connected Mexican tycoon Carlos Slims became top shareholder, excluding him from NYT criticism; Sulzberger, Cohen and other plutocrats maintain control of the Class B shares, which have full voting power; the Mexican peon, a crony capitalist from Mexico, who bought Mexican Telecom on the cheap, thanks to his friends in government, is restricted to Class A shares, enabling New York plutocrats to keep control).

In other words, those who breathe New York Times, breathe plutocracy, and no wonder I am banned from it. The Deepest State is made by these plutocrats. Unfortunately for them, one of their own has gone to the other side. 

Raised Fist, Big Red Flag of a Tie: Lenin Is Back, But Through An Election This Time!

Open Jacket, Raised Fist, Big Red Flag of a Tie: It Looks As If Lenin Is Back, But Through An Election This Time!

Trump was born and raised in the (financial core of the) establishment: first on the periphery, then at its heart, for decades (he admitted this himself explicitly). More than a year ago, he presented himself as a demolisher of said establishment. That was fully confirmed by his inaugural speech.

Haters for hire will howl, according to their nature. However history is full of rebellious plutocrats which turned against the plutocracy they came from. One could even say that this is the most frequent mechanism for real change.

Cleisthenes, the top Athenian plutocrat, from the top family, the Alcmaeonid, plotted extensively against the Athenian tyranny, got Sparta to invade, twice, and finally took power, just to feel that there was no alternative, but total democracy. And then he installed democracy, a democracy so total that tiny Athens became one of the greatest contributor to civilization, ever. (Cleisthenes called his reforms isonomia, “equality vis à vis law”, iso-=equality; nomos=law… not demokratia…) 

Here is the entire transcript below of Trump’s inaugural speech, with key portions pointed out in various ways: all caps, highlighted and commented.

TRUMP: Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, thank you.

[Patrice comment: notice Trump did not forget We the People of the WORLD! So much for his alleged xenophobia… which could not resist Melania’s thick Germanoid accent…]

Original Internationale: Lenin Grabbed the French “l’Internationale” and made it the USSR’s anthem.

Original Internationale: Lenin Grabbed the French “l’Internationale” and made it the USSR’s anthem.

(APPLAUSE) Trump: “We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people. (APPLAUSE)

Together, we will determine the course of America and the WORLD for many, many years to come. We will face challenges, we will confront hardships, but we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice: So much for Trump being a racist pig, as the haters have contended; Hitler did not find “blacks” extra magnificent; Hitler did not salute “blacks”.]

TRUMP: “Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people. (APPLAUSE)

For too long, A SMALL GROUP IN OUR NATION’S CAPITAL HAS REAPED THE REWARDS OF GOVERNMENT WHILE THE PEOPLE HAVE BORNE THE COST. WASHINGTON FLOURISHED, BUT THE PEOPLE DID NOT SHARE IN ITS WEALTH. POLITICIANS PROSPERED, BUT THE JOBS LEFT AND THE FACTORIES CLOSED. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice: This is the “populist” point of view. “We The People”. DEMOS-KRATOS = PEOPLE-POWER. Power to People. The first (and nearly last) democracy, for real (among males) was Athens. Athens’ democracy was a gigantic success in nearly all ways, including driving Athens completely crazy. As a result, Athens’ democracy ultimately failed, and “democracy” became a dirty word for more than two millennia. A similar evolution affected Rome, yet, in slower motion. It is striking that “populist” is viewed as an insult by most Main Stream Media. It is astounding that the clueless little people do not realize that, when they vilify “populism”, they vilify themselves; US “celebrities”, who are paid outrageous amounts of money and power, are besides themselves as the fat rats they are, deep in the establishment cheese.]

Trump again:“That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you. (APPLAUSE). It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.” (APPLAUSE)

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether OUR GOVERNMENT IS CONTROLLED BY THE PEOPLE. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice comment: This is in total contradiction of the “small government” theme of the traditional conservatives. In other words, Trump, long a registered Democrat and a supporter of the Democratic Party with millions of dollars (up to 2010!), is still, well, if not a Democrat, certainly a democrat!]

Trump: “January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the PEOPLE BECAME THE RULERS of this nation again.(APPLAUSE) The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. (APPLAUSE) Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before. (APPLAUSE)

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

THIS AMERICAN CARNAGE STOPS RIGHT HERE AND STOPS RIGHT NOW. (APPLAUSE) We are one nation and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams. And their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny. The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.(APPLAUSE)

[Comment: Trump has dreams, we all have dreams, like Martin Luther King had a dream…]

Trump: “For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own.(APPLAUSE)

And spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We’ve made other countries rich, while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.

But that is the past. And now, we are looking only to the future. (APPLAUSE)

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice comment: what happened to plutocracy first? No wonder the news organizations, all of which are owned, or, if not outright owned, controlled by plutocrats

Trump: “Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.” (APPLAUSE)

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never ever let you down. (APPLAUSE) America will start winning again, winning like never before.(APPLAUSE)

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams. (APPLAUSE)

We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor. (APPLAUSE)

[This is a BIG GOVERNMENT program, in complete contradiction to anything done since Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. Trump is asking for one trillion dollars, right away, for that infrastructure program.]

Trump: “We will follow two simple rules; buy American and hire American. (APPLAUSE)

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow. (APPLAUSE)

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and UNITE THE CIVILIZED WORLD AGAINST RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM, WHICH WE WILL ERADICATE FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH. (APPLAUSE)

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR HEART TO PATRIOTISM, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR PREJUDICE(APPLAUSE)

The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. (APPLAUSE) There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God. (APPLAUSE) Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining, but never doing anything about it. (APPLAUSE) The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action. (APPLAUSE)

Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to UNLOCK THE MYSTERIES OF SPACE, TO FREE THE EARTH FROM THE MISERIES OF DISEASE, AND TO HARNESS THE ENERGIES, INDUSTRIES AND TECHNOLOGIES OF TOMORROW. A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions.

[Patrice: Advancing science and technology is the way out. Right now, it takes 50 million dollars and ten years for a potential new drug to go through the government review process. That’s 20 times too much, As a result of the present situation, there are fewer and fewer new drugs. Miracle new drugs, already demonstrated, are completely blocked. Hey, Obama, Michelle and their friends are young and healthy: why should have they cared?]

Trump: “It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots. (APPLAUSE)

{Patrice comment: I have been called a “racist troll” publicly, for a readership of thousands, by the vile haters out there. Are those from the same mindset which called Trump a racist? But is not racist the one who calls “racist” who is not racist?]

Trump: “We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms and we all salute the same great American flag. (APPLAUSE) And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the wind-swept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they will their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.(APPLAUSE)

So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again.

(APPLAUSE) Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And yes, together we will make America great again. (APPLAUSE) Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.

***

All right, I don’t like the God stuff, which reminds me all too much of Obama’s cynical down speaking to the masses. Why could not the secular Trump say:’”bless you. And bless America?” But for the rest, well, I love the combative attack against the establishment.

Obama left for a weekend in Palm Springs, to visit with some of his plutocrat friends whom he made ambassadors. Obama travelled in style, with Air Force One, the giant 747 jumbo jet specially modified by Boeing. As Obama was not president anymore, the plane had a different code name. Operating that jet made to carry 450, costs more than $200,000 an hour. Palm Springs is surrounded by colossal, and magnificent mountains towering nearly two miles higher, some of them covered with forests, lower ones with high altitude desert. The San Andrea fault strikes a straight, highly visible, tumultuous line along the valley. It is one of Earth’s most spectacular places. Yet, it was raining on Obama’s parade. The mighty jet went into a holding pattern, for half an hour. It then had to land one hundred kilometers away. A lesson: Earth is indifferent to human self-importance. That monopolizing a jumbo jet just for himself was Obama’s first post-presidential gesture tells volumes which no philosopher should like.

Over three Christmas, the Hawaiian Obama vacation cost 15 million dollars, in transportation costs, alone. But who is counting? Giant monopolies protected by the globalocracy owe trillions in taxes to We The People, and small businesses. None of the loud mouths of the establishment care (they established it that way).

We are living in the times of the greatest perils, and the greatest potential. And whenever the establishment is in the way, of vital progress we need to make to survive, it should be disintegrated.

And it’s not just empty words: for example the desert, next to Obama’s Palm Springs, can generate colossal amounts of energy (wind, photovoltaics). But then the energy has to be transported. Direct Current High Voltage line is the way to do that. They have to be constructed, at great cost. A big government task. China is doing it (the Changji-Guquan link under construction will carry half the generating power of Spain, and is charged at more than one million volts). But then China has its own space station, which neither Europe nor the US has (the ISS, is not called the International Space Station for no reason, and it’s a great thing… yet it’s symptomatic that Europe and the US think they can’t afford space, let alone science: a 100 meter telescope should be under construction right now; it would (re)solve not just exoplanets, but maybe Quantum Physics; it’s technically feasible, and not that expensive, compared to an hour of Obama).

Thinking, thinking deep, thinking deeper is hard, harder. Nobody protested eight years ago. My despair was not shared, when I saw all the plutocrats and their sycophants making a wall around Obama, sucking even his air, and any single thought. What was going on was clear. How come was I the only one to see it? Much of it was public knowledge, where were the protesters? They could, they should, have helped.

The political establishment had to play the game, and nearly all of it was at Trump’s inauguration, including Clinton. The one notable exception was John Kerry, and it’s not because he is bilingual in French. It is because he is the richest politician in the US (short of Trump!) Kerry had to choose between country and class. He chose the plutocracy.

Thinking creatively, or just correctly, is difficult.

Enough with the insults, lazy little critters, off to work. And work, first of all, requires deep thinking, not “just saying”.

Obama Wanted Trump To Win

January 19, 2017

Clinton lost Because Obama wanted it, deep down inside. Machiavel On The Potomac!

Some recent extracts from Obama (link below):“You can’t say it, but you know it’s true!… The end of the Republic has never looked better!… I am going to use it at Goldman Sachs next year!”

Did Obama want Trump to win consciously, or unconsciously? That brings the question of what is conscious, and what is not. The subconscious is neurological circuitry which exists already, but have not been visited officially by consciousness.

At That Point, Obama Told Everybody That He was Going To Be Dropped, Just As A Used Microphone. However, He had A Secret Plan, A Second Foundation: Beat Clinton, And Thus Stay The Head Of the Opposition and the Core Of Hope

At That Point, Obama Told Everybody That He was Going To Be Dropped, Just As A Used Microphone (he dropped the mike next, see link below). However, Obama had A Secret Plan, A Second Foundation: Beat Clinton, And Thus Stay The Head Of the Opposition and the Core Of Hope. Hope That Will Work Better Next T

Obama just said (January 8) that “if you can find a plan that is demonstrably better than Obamacare, I will be the first to publicly support repealing Obamacare. Eight years ago, I asked if there was something better, and got no answer”.

Of course Obama knows very well that more than three dozen countries have better plans than Obamacare, and they are all variations of what would be of Medicare For All”. Namely you make basic health care a government program out of the clutches of plutocrats like Warren Buffet. (Warren Buffet being one saintly plutocrats of the “Democratic” Party.)

Anyway, the initial proposition is best as a question: Why would Obama have sincerely wanted for Clinton to win?

***

Would Obama have sincerely wanted for Clinton to win so that he could become insignificant, replaced, eclipsed?

Of course not.

Obama wanted Hillary to win, because he wanted to save his legacy, bleats the clueless sheep. Sheep is not smart: sheep thinks as one, as the group: know the mind of one sheep, know the mind of all. Actually the shepherd think for the sheep.

Obama’s legacy, as a legislative body, is shot, there is nothing to save It’s so shot through, it amounts so much to nothing, Obama knows it all too well… He may want to correct history and finally make his mark.

***

Why was Obama’s “legacy” so much ado about nothing?

Because Obama let himself be manipulated, feeling that was good “navigation” (a selfish concept central to his worldview). Not that he had a choice. He was not just financed by these people. He was programmed by them.

Ten years ago, Obama used to crow that he had been reading the Financial Times for so long, he actually had started before the Financial Times became required reading among “Democratic” leaders.

Obama has a good reason to be resentful about how his  “legacy” got mangled. Vengeance is a powerful motivation. Who did the mangling? Was that Trump? Trump has nothing to do with it. Far from it: it turns out that Trump was right, all along, on some very important points.

Obama failed, from all the way back, including from the admiration for Reagan, which perverted the Democratic establishment, the Clintons, and even Obama himself. Trump, on the other hand, opposed the globalocracy promoted by Reagan and Paul Krugman. As early as 1987, for all to see.

Obama’s legacy is a plane which gathered speed for take-off, yet, not enough speed to clear the trees. It has crashed. One can drive 3,000 miles across the US, and never leave a state thoroughly controlled by Republicans. Everything indicates that Trump, if he plays his cards well, will have a supermajority in 2018.

The Financial Times has some good articles, occasionally. However, it’s like saying that Pravda (the Soviet equivalent of the New York Times) had good article. Fundamentally, the Financial Times is a fundamentalist Thatcherian-Reaganian newspaper: “There Is No Alternative!” … to the fundamental principle is that greed is the best motivation of human beings, including for building a morality.    

As I have said for eight years, there was never much of a Obama government installed to instill hope. First Hank Paulson (Goldman Sachs and Bush Treasury Secretary) told Obama what to do, even before Obama got elected. Worst: Obama agreed to it. Of course, Obama’s economic adviser was Lawrence Summers (re-Goldman Sachs, Harvard). Obama was completely controlled by the Democratic machine, with the Goldman Sachs government, in place since before Bill Clinton’s election. Nancy Pelosi, head of the Democratic majority in Congress, also agreed to Paulson’s plan, after Paulson went down to one knee in front of her.

What happened? Obama was too young, too inexperienced, too naive strategically (street-smart is not world-smart). He was also a tool of the establishment, and he trusted those who trusted him. And it all turned out, into eight years wasted.

Now Obama, at last, is free of all these financial goons and their obsequious servants.

Whereas, if Clinton had won, they would have won. Instead, they were destroyed. Let me repeat slowly: the tormentors of Obama, those who lead Obama astray, those who made Obama’s legacy, mostly the color of a skin, this waste of hope, have been vanquished. Vanquished by Trump, yes, but vanquished. Why would Obama want it otherwise?

Now Obama is the core of hope, the future. Maybe he can make Michelle run, get another eight years that way. This time, with the correct mindset, not as a puppet.

We will see.

Mentality Trumps Logic

November 30, 2016

Mental States Trump (Local Linear) Logic

TRUMP MADNESS MENTALLY ENLIGHTENING, thank you, all of you, clueless fanatics, for providing us with not just entertainment, but insights on how insects think.

How do people think? When thinking about thinking, intellectuals tend to go back to Plato describing the mythical Socrates ponderously going from a) to c) because a) implied b) and b) implied c). Well, this is NOT how the brain works. The brain has basically two systems: Local Linear Logic, and Topological Logic (TL = emotion, so we will call it ES, the Emotional System). LLL and ES are entangled. For example, ES, the Emotion System, shuts off, and opens, various sub-systems in the brain. Moreover the ES directs consciousness into these subsystems. Each of these systems comes with its own logic. So there is no such a thing as “logic” per se. 

Actually modern axiomatics in logic considers that any Logic L comes with its own Universe U (in which it sits, so to speak). Varying U varies L. Thus a Logic L in the brain, sitting in subsystem S1 will be different from one sitting in subsystem S2, because they constitute different universes U. (An aspect of that was long known, as thinkers argued that various drugs, from alcohol to THC enabled them to reach various stages of consciousness…)

Thus what Plato talked about is basically irrelevant to foster wisdom. What is relevant is mental subsystems selection, how, and why. And even subsystem management. Instead, Plato explores logic, LLL. And recent events have been enlightening: LLL is mostly secondary for directing people’s behavior. 

I think, Therefore I sting. At Least, Sometimes, I Feel That Way.

I Think, Therefore I Sting. At Least, Sometimes, I Feel That Way.

By “Trump Madness” I do not mean Trump is mad, far from it: after all, he is the next president, and already causing more change than Obama did in 8 years (see Europe dumping “austerity” within 30 hours of Trump’s election). Clearly, there was a very smart method to Trump’s madness, and it was highly successful for him, as he obtained the loftiest job in the world (at least as far as conventional wisdom has it; in truth the loftiest job is mine, but never mind…). Thus “Trump madness” was anything except madness, on the part of Trump… Or his supporters (who also got what they wanted).

The real madness has been the flow of insults and indiscriminate violence on the part of “Clinton” supporters. Innocent thinkers were called “unscholarly, uncouth, anti-semitic, racist, xenophobic, judged to have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder,  and compulsive liars”. This was just a sampler of the most polite insults directed at me… by “friends”… and I am NOT a Trump supporter. Just thought to be so, because I rolled out all sorts of graphs depicting demoncracy (from inequality, to incarceration, rate, to life expectancy, to government investment, etc.).

Never mind that this was all for positions I held sometimes for decades, they are all extremely progressive, and I am just culprit of having Trump embracing them.

Insults directed at Trump were often obviously more insane than grievous. Trump was called “xenophobic” (the evidence is, the exact opposite, that is, Trump is an extreme xenoPHILE). Trump was called “anti-semitic” (his beloved and trusted son-in-law is an observant Jew). Trump was called a business failure (he grew his “organization”, now in 60 countries, from 17 million dollar to somewhere around ten billion…)

How come Clinton supporters became so abusive? OK, they were surprised. Not just because people were scared to reveal in the polls that they would vote for Trump, skewing polls (pollster Nate Silver discovered this a week or two before the vote, so he “unskewed” the polls, and revealed the chances of Trump were significant; I knew for months, just talking to people, that people were hiding their Trump preferences).

Clinton supporters did not turn abusive and insulting just because what they worry about turns out not to be what most of the country worries about. But, mostly, they hated, because it turned out that they had become strangers to themselves, and the world. Part of them rose in fury, and took over their persona, because they wanted to lash out, so great was the pain that uncomprehension caused..

The Clinton supporters had no idea how neurohormonally entangled with (their idea of) their candidate. Precisely because they were deliberately ignored the (left, leftist, liberal, progressive) case I have made for more than eight years (with all those graphs), they had turned into fanatics, Jihadists, because they had rejected (the unsavory) reality.

The mental order in the brains of these self-described progressives, supposed to address politics, had become hopelessly disconnected from reality. For example, in judging Obama, they judged his brown skin, but not the fact Obama was led by the nose by Lawrence Summers, the Harvard-Goldman Sachs surrogate who had dismantled, under Bill Clinton, the Banking Act of 1933 (“G-S”). And this, seven months before Obama reigned. And they ignored hundreds of other indicators which were flashing way more right, and corporate fascism, than any other president before.

Thus the mental subsystems Clinton supporters activated over the years made them not just unreal, but incapable of activating anything else. One of my prefered game these days is to question Clinton-Obama fanatics about Quantitative Easing. I generally draw a blank. The self-perceived) most clever ones tell me it was a good thing. So here you have so-called progressives saying that giving more than ten trillion dollars to the world richest, most corrupt people and institutions was… a good thing.

Guess what, you dummies? It was a good thing only for plutocracy, also known as demoncracy. The only person who could understand what I was talking about, and agreed with me, before meeting me, is Senior VP in a major bank.

People think first with their neurohormones. Tell me their neurohormones most active, and I can tell you where their Local Linear Logic delves. Obsessions leads and localizes reflection.

Is there experimental evidence for the preceding? Yes, there is, from… insects. The theory of consciousness is starting to rise. It involves making flies play videogames, or seeing if, like American students, they can get scared. Flies can be put in a state of “scariness” and wanting to get to a “safe space”.

Insects have a rudimentary ego, though very different from Narcissus or classical literature would have it. Insect ego appears as the ability to act and mentally concentrate on certain environmental cues thus ignoring others. “They don’t pay attention to all sensory input equally,” cognitive scientist Andrew Barron of Australia’s Macquarie University declared.

When you and I are hungry, we don’t just move towards food, as bacteria do. Our hunger creates a particular feeling (an emotion) which, in turn rearrange which subsystems are activated in our brain. Such a state is called a “subjective experience” in traditional philosophy. Do insects have the same? Obviously they do (I can say from anecdotes, and thus as a philosopher; scientists will verify and make sure).

Insects can be led into mental states which do not fit reality. So can humans (humans even do this deliberately, when they play or make jokes). Once in such a state, a particular logic, the universe of which is that precise mental state, flows. That Local Linear Logic is particular, yet it leaves (neural) connections behind. If suddenly precipitated, for real, in a situation calling for that mental state, the LLL is ready to kick in. That’s why humans play, and make jokes.

This election was a joke. So were the mental states most citizens put themselves, or let themselves been put, in the last few decades. Time to wake up.

And time to wake up to the reality that it is moods which create logic, even more than it is logic which creates moods.

Trumped By Jurassic Climate Nonlinearly Erupting

November 19, 2016

Trump is climate skeptic, it is said, but the climate is not skeptic about Trump. Humanity is the crew, and Earth the spaceship. Trump is now in charge, if anybody is in charge, after eight years of … boyhood. It’s supposed to be a racial insult, I learned. But question: where is the insult, when a 47-year-old (age of Obama when he was sworn in) is supposed to lead the planet, knowing what few other know (as Joe Biden reminded us this week).

Obama went to Germany, and sang the praises of Angela Merkel, her wisdom, etc. Arguably, however, Merkel has been disastrous: her austerity policy, combined with her refusal to support France militarily in a significant way, by re-establishing peace in Syria, manu military, has brought more than one million refugees to Germany, and a near economic and political collapse of Europe (think Brexit, exodus from Portugal, etc.)

All what Obama knows is that his financial sponsors and paymasters tell him austerity is great, Quantitative Easing is great, inequality is great, but we can live with it, etc. 

Spectacular Heat Is On Where It Hurts Most: The High Arctic

Spectacular Heat Is On Where It Hurts Most: The High Arctic. November 2016.

Meanwhile, Earth’s climate is acting up. The temperature in the Arctic is way above normal. A full twenty degrees Celsius above normal (that’s 36 degrees F above normal). As a result, ice is having a problem forming. Should the situation perdure until the sun starts shining again above the Arctic, a complete disappearance of sea ice, comes next summer, is imaginable… Sea ice levels in at the North Pole are at a record low, by a long shot.

Planetary climate is self-regulating… Except if pushed too far. Planetary climate consists in several entangled machines. The overall climate pattern in place in the last three million years is a Carnot engine, with a heat source, the tropic, and a cold sink, the poles.

Right now, the poles are still very cold, but more energy has been pumped into the tropics, from the increasing greenhouse (what’s called “climate forcing”, 60% due to COE, 17% due to CH4, and the rest completely from man-made gases like NOx). Thus the climate engine is roaring more than ever (it gets more efficient, from an equation Carnot discovered nearly two centuries ago). An effect, as I predicted long ago, is that more energy will be stored dynamically (jet stream twisted all over) and potentially (high and low pressure systems both more so).

This is what we observe.

How will it evolve? Among the entangled machinery, some is (still) dormant: fabulous quantities of methane are locked in a sort of ice in medium depth sea floor, and more in the tundra. Should those be released, the temperature of the planet would go up five degrees Celsius nearly instantaneously, and, in turn, huge quantities of CO2 locked in the northern latitudes would be released.

Once the latter happens (it’s more a question of when, not if, barring vast technological advances), Earth would go back to Jurassic conditions nearly instantaneously.  

What can one do? First have everybody understand the danger. Differently from the dinosaurs, or the mammals who lived under them, we have the means to understand and act.

Obama had as National Security Adviser a politically, dynastically connected woman, with lots of stocks and connections, but not a warrior. Trump just selected as National Security adviser a four (no, three, thanks Richard Reinhofer!) star Lieutenant General, Michael Flynn. Flynn, ex head of the Delta Force, became Director Army Intelligence in 2012 (however, Obama never met with him, and fired him for being too tough about Radical Islamism). That’s a rational choice. Flynn is a “registered Democrat” (that is, not GOP).

The general considers “RATIONAL” to be afraid of Islam. And then recommended to propagate that message, because rationality is not afraid (OK, agreed, Flynn made the mistake of saying “afraid of Muslims” instead, as he should have, “afraid of Islam”.)

5:14 PM – 26 Feb 2016 Or this:@FieldofFight Obama and Hillary’s Refusal to Name Radical Islamic Terrorism: Aiming to ‘Dumb Us Down’ – Breitbart

As the New York Times puts it: “General Flynn…sees the United States as facing a singular, overarching threat that can be described in only one way: “radical Islamic terrorism. All else is secondary for General Flynn, and any other description of the threat is “the worst kind of political correctness,” he said in an interview three weeks before the election.

Islamist militancy poses an existential threat on a global scale, and the Muslim faith itself is the source of the problem, he said, describing it as a political ideology, not a religion. He has even at times gone so far as to call it a cancer.

For General Flynn, the election of Mr. Trump represents an astounding career turnaround. Once counted among the most respected military officers of his generation, General Flynn was fired after serving only two years as chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency. He then re-emerged as a vociferous critic of a Washington elite that he contended could not even properly identify the real enemy — radical Islam, that is — never mind figure out how to defeat it.”

I have argued that Literal Islam is totally incompatible with civilization. And the best proof is that what was long the world’s richest area, the Middle East (including the Fertile Crescent, Syria, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia) became one of the poorest.

Clearly the voters agreed (Trump destroyed the famed “Blue Wall” of states Democrats thought were secured, and thus got a large Electoral College victory).

Islam, a savage-from-the-desert Middle Age system of thoughts and moods is nothing much, a self-destructive obsession. However, as it has invaded the Western psyche, it has become a distracting cancer. To handle the serious problems, like the planet blowing up, we have to reduce this sort of maddening distractions. Nor can we talk falsely about Islam, while talking truly about the climate. The mood of telling the truth has to be global. Irreverential. The Obama administration and its poodle regimes (Merkel, France, etc.) have been talking falsely not just about Islam, but also about economics, society, globalocracy, plutocracy, taxes, taxes on the wealthiest, corporate fascism, dark money, etc.

They talked falsely about Islam, precisely because the Obama adminstration, and the Deep State

Obama, talking at Der Spiegel: “Many people who voted for me, voted for Trump… I think that’s indicative that there is some impulse towards some sort of change, politicans have to be more sensitive to the desire for change.” where have you been my lost son? Obama sounds increasingly like Sleeping Beauty waking up after eight years’ slumber…

In any case, Trump is telling the truth about Islam, or even Mexicans (“terrific people”). Let’s keep truth momentum. Trump seems willing to replace wishful thinking by rationality (just as the pivot to Russia, however worrisome and potentially dangerous it is, is better than Obama’s boiled noodle opposition).

Meanwhile, there is little doubt that the climate has started to act nonlinearly.  It will be rational to also act even more nonlinearly in return.
