In praise of stealing from us all

kirchubel column sig

From page A8 | April 28, 2014 |

The police in Philadelphia tried last week to arrest a member of the Black Panthers for defrauding the federal food stamp program of more than $1 million. But when they arrived, they were overwhelmed by hundreds Panthers armed with sniper rifles and automatic weapons and forced to retreat.

Unbelievably, MSNBC and dozens of left-wing bloggers and talk radio hosts praised the Panther militia for “standing up to government oppressors.”

Folks, that story makes me want to puke. Thankfully, it’s completely false.

The last time we met on these Daily Republic pages, we were discussing money in politics and the rise of the American Plutocracy. That seemed like an important topic to me, but most of the online conversation revolved around Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy’s militia of hundreds of armed “patriot” volunteers and their stand-off against the Bureau of Land Management.

The BLM had been rounding up Bundy’s cattle, grazing on federal land, because he hadn’t paid his grazing fees for 21 years and had run up a bill of more than $1 million. Bundy’s defense was that he didn’t recognize the BLM as having any right to collect fees, even though his delusion had been proven false in court, several times.

No matter, Bundy further refused to recognize our federal government as legitimate. Bundy even ordered the sheriff to confiscate the weapons from all federal agents in the county and be back in one hour, presumably for further orders.

Confronted by such a massive combination of firepower and irrationality, the BLM acted logically and withdrew before anyone got hurt.

All the posturing, chest-thumping and gun totin’ in the desert, fueled by continual support for Bundy from Fox News entertainers, right-wing bloggers and conservative radio talk show hosts, led to a lively exchange on the Daily Republic website. It’s difficult to understand why conservatives would cheer for a lawbreaker who defies court orders, mooches off the government and doesn’t pay his bills, but this story does make sense when you rely exclusively on the right-wing media’s imaginative version of it.

In an effort to understand what makes this particular criminal such a right-wing hero, I dove headfirst into the fetid swamps of right-wing Internet sites and Fox News.

Fairfield, I watch Fox News so you won’t have to, as a public service for Daily Republic readers, and, I might add, at great personal risk. (See: Is Fox News hazardous to your health? Jan. 21, 2013, Daily Republic.)

What I found was a morass of tangled lies; twisted, groundless conspiracy theories; and a whole lot of anti-government rhetoric. Brushing aside the formidable facade of Chinese solar energy projects that don’t exist, Harry Reid graft yarns based on those lifeless projects, endangered land tortoises and BLM officers allegedly slaughtering cattle, I arrived at what I believe to be the main story here. At its core, the Bundy/BLM standoff revolves around the perceived illegitimacy of our U.S. government.

Cliven Bundy and his “sovereign citizen” militia simply believe our government should not exist. The “sovereign citizen” movement believes they are “true patriots” only answerable to “common law,” free from any constraints of federal, state, or municipal law. While it may be difficult to understand how anyone would view these people as “patriots,” since they disavow what our Founding Fathers fought so hard to achieve, they fall right into the conservative platform of shrinking the government down to the size where they can “drown it in a bathtub,” and beautifully dovetail with corporate desires to remove regulations that stifle their ability to cheat consumers and pollute the environment.

Thus the myth of Cliven Bundy, right-wing hero, was contrived.

    Mike, those right-leaning folks though they had a legitimate hero tossing all their efforts behind the man. But they turned and ran way from it once they saw the truth. Typical.

    Mike - I'm not sure what your opening story has to do with Cliven Bundy. O.k. so it's completely false. Are you saying, then, that the Bundy story is completely false? As I wrote you yesterday - your hatred of "right-wing nut jobs who love racist and bigoted homegrown terrorists" like Cliven Bundy has permeated your core so as to make you just as bigoted an individual as those you are trying to get everyone who reads your column hate. Your "I watch FOX News so you don't have to" is akin to the Russian and Chinese gov't deciding what is "good" for their people to watch. I don't need you "translating" what you think they said on FOX News - I can watch it for myself. And, guess what? I come away with a totally different perception of their reporting. To both you and CD, that must make me a nut-job, too, since to liberals like the 2of you, people who don't think like you are nuts. Not very fair and balanced:(

    CD, Fox ran away when they saw they had hitched their horse to an overtly bigoted mule. Even their viewers could see that. Teach 5, i think i've asked you this question before, do you teach the fifth grade or are you a student? The purpose of the opening paragraph was to.give readers a quick gut check. How did you feel about that story? Were you disgusted with the Black Panthers, MSNBC, and the left wingers?

    Aint it grand the GOP/FOX bunch jumped on the Bundy bandwagon in the name of “less intrusive government” and fighting back! Of course they scurried away as they usually do like rats in the night when the truth became evident. It is hysterical that Republicans want to jump on a bandwagon for their alleged principles, but look the other way and in fact terrorize American citizens by stripping their rights from beneath them. Challenging the troubled segments of our own society all ready having to struggle for acceptance to the point of making legal changes to the Constitution to dismiss them. Hypocrisy reigns supreme on the right and it hurts a lot of people. Good riddance Conservative/Tea Party apologists.

    Teach5th, I don't watch MSNBC OR FOX but I get a very well balanced array of news from other sources. I don't believe anyone can watch any one program and get "fair and balanced" information. You have to dig in a little find the subject matter and context. When I am able to obtain transcripts I am able to get the stories in their proper context and that makes all the difference in the world. No spin, nothing fancy, just the actual wording. The truth is out there but it isn't always that easy to find.

    @Teach: " I come away with a totally different perception of their reporting.". Of course you do, because you have no baseline to compare it too. You are not getting the full story, you are getting a script on how to view today's events. Did you know that Foxnews argued in court, that they are not required to tell the truth, even if it is with malice. They won their court case based on that. This should tell you all you need to know about this organization.

    What it means is that Fox News petitioned the court. No other news organization felt the need to do that. No other news organization would risk their credibility doing that. Catch a clue; your favorite source for information is simply a lying, propaganda machine. Everybody acknowledges that except the people who trust them to be "fair and balanced" because they say they are. You know, the gullible suckers, and there's one born every minute. Try branching out. Try to watch a real news program, just once a day, at first.

    The best tv news is pbs. I watch fox AND msnbc for politics. The daily show and colbert report offer their views. If you want to compare fox news with another program, compare them eith colbert and stewart. They are all focused on entertaining their audiences. The difference is that stewart and colbert both fact check their news.

    Some of Blogs that I go to are: balloon-juice.com is hosted by a former hard core republican. nakedcapitalism.com gives you a wide variety of articles to discuss on economics. For news, you have to be picky and careful, because most of the stuff is aggregated. I do visit cnsnews.com on a regular basis, they seem to be one of the more legitimate conservative outlets. The best advice I could give someone on the street, double and triple check the validity of the source(I.E. Donald Sterling is part of the Democratic party). Stay away from people looking to suck up(advance career), have a vested(money) interest in the story going big, or is hocking a book that is directed at one side of the political scale.

Moore was the Arkansas gun dealer and FBI informant who worked with Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) informant Andreas Strassmeier, the man widely believed to have originally given McVeigh the idea of bombing the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Both were handled by FBI agent Larry Potts, a senior FBI official who had allegedly personally ordered the murder of members of the Randy Weaver family at Ruby Ridge, Idaho...... Moore was being “run” by two FBI agents—known as Ross and Hayes—from the Hot Springs, Arkansas office. But the Elohim City operation was not a two-bit FBI sting; it was authorized by top Justice officials........ At the time of the bombing, our current United States Attorney General, Eric Holder, was managing FBI sting operations as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia —and sitting in line to take over as deputy attorney general, which he did in 1997. One of Holder’s first jobs was to cover up the FBI’s role in the bombing.......also Google... multiple bombs in murrah building...... Youtube A NOBLE LIE - THE BOMBING OF OKLAHOMA CITY .....

However, when he doubles down on his FDS by sneeringly labeling everyone who disagrees with him as "gullible suckers" or worse, totally blinded to the truth because they (supposedly) watch Fox News, he crosses the line. I will stop here, while this post is still printable (I hope).

    Presented for your consideration... hmmm... 2014: China Vs. Bilderberg. Should We Care Who Wins? Posted on December 31, 2013 Video Rebel's Blog or google 2014: China Vs. Bilderberg. Should We Care Who Wins? | Video ... There are two conflicting plans for the Global Currency Reset. One is from what we could call the Bilderberg set. Bilderberg is an annual meeting of men and women in the West who decide what will happen over the next year. They select Presidents and Prime Ministers. They have been meeting since 1954. The Uber Rich have other groups like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Royal Institute of International Affairs. They represent the The Too Big To Jail Banks, the insurance industry and oil companies. There are 147 corporations that control 20% of international trade. They own each other’s stock and have interlocking boards of directors. They have brought in the High Tech companies. And through the National Security Agency they have done their best to turn the world into a Police State.................................... His Majesty’s Jewish Government was allowed to think they ruled the world until World War I ruined them. J P Morgan was a Rothschild asset as also were the Bush, Harriman and Rockefeller families. Morgan had an associate named Thompson give speeches to the wealthy of America in 1915 telling of the plan to bankrupt England, France and Germany thus making New York the world’s financial capitol. Left unsaid was the plan to also bankrupt Russia and to set up a Jewish dictatorship called Communism. Too bad 60 million Gentiles had to die................Thought provoking... So again we are left to ask... How much do the Rothschilds control China? or even if they do not control China, how much does this matter in terms of Revelation? Even if the Luciferian Rothschilds do not control China it does not mean that the Devil could not still control the Chinese Illuminati... anyway the Devil don't care as long as we all fight each other...............Several sources have come forward to name 2014 as the year of the Global Currency Reset. 2014 could be the year wages and pensions are cut 50%. Some have worried about World War III. I have not. My greatest concern is that when, not if, the dollar collapses, that every man’s hand will be against his neighbor. If food disappears from the store shelves or men have no money to buy it, civilization will cease on the third day.

    Google... White House Wants Chinese-Style ID System For Internet Users Paul Joseph Watson April 29, 2014 .........Testing is set to begin next month on a pilot program that could lead to the introduction of a Chinese-style ID system for Internet users, an “identity ecosystem” that critics fear would create a backdoor to government regulation of the world wide web......The White House’s “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” would replace the current system of using passwords to access sensitive online accounts with something akin to a biometric ID card that would link one individual to all their government services, such as food stamps, welfare as well as a myriad of other things like mortgage applications and applications for licenses....... “The original proposal was quick to point out that this isn’t a federally mandated national ID. But if successful, it could pave the way for an interoperable authentication protocol that works for any website, from your Facebook account to your health insurance company,” writes Meghan Neal, warning that the proposal is “a scary can of worms to open”........Please read the entire piece THIS IS IMPORTANT PEOPLE

  • Today Tuesday on InfowarsApril 29, 2014 - 9:21 am

    On the April 29 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex breaks down the White House's call for a Chinese-style I.D. system for U.S. Internet users, a system which instead of using passwords could rely on biometric I.D. cards linked to other government services such as welfare, social security and a myriad of other things. Alex also analyzes the latest video purporting to show dead Syrian soldiers who may have been killed by a chemical weapons attack, a startling new development suggesting it is western-backed rebels deploying sarin gas and not the Al-Assad regime. On today's show, Alex welcomes author and Professor of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame Dr. Darcia Narvaez to discuss epigenetics and the different factors that impact and influence a child's neurodevelopment. We'll also cover other breaking news and take your calls on today's worldwide broadcast.wwwinfowarscom

    Google... How to Kill Goyim and Influence People: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel By Max Blumenthal.........Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu maintained an eerie silence about the rabbis’ flouting of the law. Following the publication of Torat Ha’Melech, Netanyahu strenuously avoided criticizing its contents or the authors’ leading supporters. Netanyahu’s submissive posture before the country’s religious far right highlighted the power religious nationalist figures wielded both in his own party and in his governing coalition. For the prime minister, a showdown with the rabbis threatened to unravel his coalition, derail his agenda, and alienate his party’s hardcore base in “Judea and Samaria.” Goyim is anyone not Jewish ( whites included ).... I just thought this was interesting...

  • Points worth PonderingApril 30, 2014 - 9:11 am

    1. Netanyahu was happy after the 9/11 attacks... ( after all the dark elements of Israeli Intelligence help set it up... and all the financing involved before and the pay outs afterward... Silverstein etc.... )... also Netanyahu is a good friend of ROMNEY... SO SEE PEOPLE NO ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT....say NO TO ROMNEY AND ANYONE HE ENDORSES.....2. As part of the investigations into who really did 9/11 it was discovered that there were approx. 120 Israeli agents operating through out the US penetrating various installations, and that some of these were probably demolition types... 3. If you look at the DVD about the Libyan war that I suggested and watch it all the way, they say that Libya is now being used to vet "Al-Queda" terrorists and get them American Passports or access into America..... Now my take, see the Rothschild/Illuminati/ same people that did 9/11, Dark elements Repub. NEOCON and top Democrats/ Mossad/ MI6/ elements are planting their Al-Queda terrorists into the US...4. In these 9/11 conference videos they are researching whether mini-nukes and various cutter charges and thermite/thermiate were all used to Control Demolate the Twin Towers... Building 7 appeared to be a normal "pull it" Demolition with just the regular type charges.....5. Did some of these 120 Israeli operatives pre-plant some mini-nukes in various locations through out the US, so that Israel can blackmail us on behalf of the Rothschilds and then blame any detonations on " the Al-Queda terrorists " that they have preplanted, just like they preplanted the box cutter terrorists, who did not really bring down the towers or hijack the jets? THIS IS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION

  • Wikipedia/Google Gaslighting ( More Illuminati tactics )April 30, 2014 - 9:52 am

    Gaslighting is a form of mental abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory, perception and sanity.[1] Instances may range simply from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim....The term "gaslighting" comes from the play Gas Light and its film adaptations. The term is now also used in clinical and research literatur

    On this powerful Thursday, May 1 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex covers the accelerating power grab by government workers and bureaucrats who are now ruling arbitrarily without statutory authority. After a mother frantically called 911 fearing that her son was choking, EMS workers proceeded to inspect her house, telling her that they were "agents of the state." The DOJ and the FDIC are also working together in a joint program called Operation Choke Point, which is scaring banks away from doing business with government-declared "high-risk" merchants such as gun dealers. William Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, a former CIA contract pilot who covertly flew munitions for the agency, joins the show to break down the extensive cover-up of Benghazi. Alex also takes your calls throughout the broadcast.wwwinfowarscom

    On the Friday, May 2 broadcast of the Alex Jones Show, Jones breaks down how the Benghazi debacle is just a footnote in the Obama administration's extensive list of impeachable offenses, and exposes the real story behind the attack as another botched CIA gun-running scheme, similar to operations run in Libya and Syria. Alex also looks at the latest abysmal jobs report showing over 92 million unemployed Americans dependent on the government for survival. On today's show, Alex examines the increase in military exercises over American cities and why many people believe their goal is to acclimate citizens into accepting martial law-style activities as routine. Jones also covers other off-the-charts, incredible news and takes your calls on this global transmission.wwwinfowarscom

Because Israel really controls our media and government for the Rothschild Banking cartel and Bilderbergs .... look at the membership list of The Committee of 300... and remember the Bilderbergs would not have let Obama become president if they did not want him to be president... So this Muslim Brotherhood against Israel is just part of the on-going staged game the Illuminati play.... ie at the very top the Illuminati are just play fighting one illuminati group against the next... but at the bottom we the goyim and infidel die for them...
