Mission Accomplished Again


I love to read Caitlin Johnstone over at Medium because, aside from being a commie, she is right about almost everything and a prolific writer. So when Geo. W. Bush bragged about his call "to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq" during a speech at his presidential center in Dallas I just had to go read her assessment of the moment. She didn't disappoint, claiming that Bush's Freudian slip/confession is "the single best thing that has ever happened" (W"s malapropism), sweet Caitlin goes for the Adam's apple:

The bullshit doesn’t get any more brightly illuminated than this, folks. All that spin and narrative management they’ve been pouring into the US proxy war in Ukraine, and Bush undoes it all with the Bushism to end all Bushisms.

The girl's got a point. Bush wasn't even supposed to be talking about Iraq - he was talking about Putin and his "wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Ukraine." Those are the words that were written on the script so why did W slip in yesteryears hotspot and pop the Blue & Gold balloon.  More importantly, GWB was talking about Putin's belligerent tyranny in the context of election integrity which was the theme of the event Elections — A More Perfect Union presented by The George W. Bush Institute, the Partnership for American Democracy, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Karsh Institute of Democracy at the University of Virginia. For someone like me who is convinced that all US elections are rigged and that 70% of our "representatives" are installed by political shenanigans making the majority government illegitimate this is four (4!) hours of torture administered by John Bridgeland, Jon Meacham, Yuval Levin, Michael Carney, Joanna Lydgate... please, make it stop... make it stop, I beg you. The former POTUS doesn't even show up until hour three and then stumbles through a deck or cue cards with prepared remarks which, as has been noted, he FUBARs at an epic level that will probably never be surpassed.

Unless he did it on purpose. As 43 sees it, elections provide a "healing" function for our democracy in that they allow We the People an opportunity to stomp a foot and slam a door before falling in the bed and sailing away with Wynken, Blynken, and Nod. He quotes Lincoln's "the ballot is stronger than the bullet" aphorism (tell that to John Wilkes Booth) with absolute conviction before admonishing the audience that "the way countries conduct elections is indicative of how their leaders treat their own people." Example: the Ukrainian people elected a "cool little guy" named "Vladmer Zo len ski" to be the "Churchill of the 21st Century" with 72% of the vote and now, with that electoral "legitimacy" he is bear-baiting with disastrous results for those stupid saps who cast a ballot for him. "In contrast, Russian elections are rigged. Political opponents are imprisoned or otherwise eliminated from participating in the electoral process." That means there are no "checks and balances" in Russia and that allows ONE MAN (Putin) "to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq... I mean the Ukraine." Hey, I know he's 75 years old but this Yankee Texan is dropping bombs like he did in his prime almost 20 years ago.

I'm old enough to remember what was going on in the Middle East before George W. Bush was even being groomed for the presidency - back when his dad was running things as VP for the CIA and America was fighting a Cold War with Russia in Afghanistan and Central America. A good overview is provided in "Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001" by Steve Coll who, even though he's a shitlib IC stooge assigned the task of telling the official 'warts and all" narrative as cover, chronicles many important names and dates from the decades before one inarticulate man decided to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. If you don't want to read the whole book then go skim the PBS Frontline interview of Coll from 2006 and you'll get the picture - there is no "one man" responsible for launching the invasion of Iraq but if there was his name is George Tenet, not George Bush.

Q: George W. Bush gets elected. How does the Tenet personality capture, if that's what happened, the president of the United States?

A: At the time, the principal privilege of the director of the CIA was that if he wished, and if he was in town, he had a daily appointment scheduled with the president, one on one, to provide him with a direct briefing of overnight developments in the world that the president of the United States ought to know about. Tenet used the opportunity in the morning briefing to build a personal relationship with the president.

This "principal privilege" signifies a top down directive from Langley HQ to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave where a block of time is set aside daily to be used at the DCI's discretion whenever he want's to give the POTUS briefings orders. Critics get off on pointing the finger at Clinton or Bush or Obama for the horrible things they did as president - and they did - but all the big decisions were made for them in the Ministries of Truth, Love, Peace and Plenty. No amount of voting can change that unpleasant reality so… cast your ballet and then go back to sleep, let the army fight another war in Iraq Ukraine and have the politicians fund it with $40 Billion of your money.

The Creature Crawling

 

Creature

It is no secret that I hold the music of Charles Thompson IV – aka Frank Black, aka Black Francis, the lead singer of Pixies - to be some of the greatest rock & roll ever made and I can listen to any of his recordings at any time for an indefinite duration. I’m a ultra-Black fanatic, to use the contemporary parlance, and pledge unconditional dedication to this man's inscrutable musical message. He’s my favorite pop musician which is to say that I’ve spent more time listening to him (especially the Frank Black records 1993-2006) than any other musical artist including long time favorites Pete Townshend (1964-1978), Lowell George, Kramer (and ALL Shimmy-Disc), Elliot Smith and Doug Martsch of Built to Spill who composed the soundtrack of my life. Almost 3 decades ago Mr. Black wrote a tune titled "The Creature Crawling" that was put on his "The Cult Of Ray" album and the song has stuck with me for reasons which I will now explain. 

The creature crawling
Don't know when he'll arrive
Don't know if the creature is dead or alive
All of God's creatures have a way to survive

Did you know about that?

In October of 2021 The Independent newspaper (British FakeNews) interviewed Black Francis on many topics including Donald Trump and the rise of the alt-right. The musician frames the big picture:

“You go back and forth between talking about the evil that is Donald Trump to ‘Well, actually, the evil that we’re talking about doesn’t really have anything to do with him: he’s just an allowed mascot’. It’s this other thing, it’s other groups of people, it’s other agendas that’s bigger than all of this, and he’s just a moment.”

A mascot for the bigger agenda, got it, so...

Has Pandora’s Box been opened on America’s alt-right uprising? “It just sort of feels like it’s here… The box gets opened and then suddenly you’re dealing with a lot of people in pickup trucks with their f***ing flags or whatever… Whether you’re talking about guerrilla terrorism in the Middle East or whatever, it’s f***ing dudes in pickup trucks. It’s a naive statement but you want to have world peace, you take all the guns and you basically take them out of the hands of the men and you hand them over to the women, and all the s***’s gonna go away. I know that there’s some very bad people of all genders, but I subscribe to the belief that men are f***ing everything up here. Men plus guns, not good.”

Men + pickup trucks + guns are fucking everything up... hey, wait a minute dude, that's me. Frank Black thinks I should hand over my guns to women but I need those guns to shoot the creatures that invade my property. My wife and daughters already have guns that I bought them and even if I gave them mine all this shit's not gonna go away - not ever - and I would have thought that Mr. Black understood that. Galaxy brains might find this a "naive statement" but we enjoyed more world peace when The Mascot had his moment in the Oval Office than we do now when Jo(((K)))e Brandon is trying to take away all the guns (except for the guns he's sending to truck driving men in Ukraine).

The creature crawling and he's coming up the road
He's crawling over to your area code
Crawling through the grass of your little abode

Did you know about that?

Not a garden hose

I'm not handing over my guns to any gender, good or evil, and I'm especially not going to hand them over to the dried up old crone who holds the Speaker's gavel in the US House of Representatives. The same FakeNews Fleet Street paper (The Independent) just published a story titled "Pelosi calls Trump a ‘creature’ as she dubs Supreme Court ‘dangerous to US freedoms’" in which the octogenarian nincompoop makes the same observation (and congruent solution) as my favorite Martian loving rock star.

“Who would have ever suspected that a creature like Donald Trump would become president of the United States, waving a list of judges that he would appoint, therefore getting the support of the far-right and appointing those anti-freedom justices to the court,” she said in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union.

Me, I suspected it. I even called the shot after the Brexit vote in the summer of 2016. And I'm not sure The Great MAGA King won because of some Federalist Society SCOTUS wish list or because the American people were just fed up with womanly reasoning like this -  “We played a long game... we won Roe v Wade a long time ago. We voted to protect it over time. We have democratically elected a House of Representatives that is pro-choice.” The right to abort babies was never "won" by any political movement but the 1973 Supreme Court edict has been "protected" for 50 years because unconstitutional decisions by the "Justices" can only survive logical argument if they are guarded by political mercenaries. But hey, if the majority of "elected" representatives are pro-choice, as the Speaker says, then pass a fucking law legalizing abortion the way you're supposed to in a functioning republic you stupid cunt. 

Which brings us to the "bigger problem" of "other groups of people" who "support" the "other agendas" that run counter to the "long game" the good Progressive people have been rigging for the past 5 decades (or more) and what to do with these creatures. It's not a happy situation when Trillions of dollars worth of media propoganda, educational brainwashing, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual degeneracy, family deconstruction, endless kenetic wars (foreign and domestic) and CIA psyop terror lead to an Ultra-MAGA Orange Wave of Mutilation threatening to wipe away everything you've worked for in the Great Replacement.

What to do?


Whatcha gonna say?
Whatcha gonna do?
What goes around it comes around

One fine day
Look around
There will be nothing but you

For example, The Independent's (yeah, same paper) culture critic Clémence Michallon recently penned an honest opinion piece on this topic titled "Russell Brand is the new Joe Rogan — and I’m the one he warned you about" where she declares how "disappointed" and "exhausted" she is by simply living in a world where a comedian is peddling conspiracy theories on YouTube. And the conspiracy theories are winning! If you want get a look at this Russell Brand creature than watch the video below:


It alarms and depresses me that people are making money becoming conspiracy theorists while at the same time painting themselves as the rare speakers of truth. I worry about how easy it is to look smart if you can talk for 15 minutes, throw in a couple of internet links, and weaponise the language of nuance. I realise this means I’m probably not an “awakening wonder”. I guess I’ll just have to live with myself somehow.


"I guess I’ll just have to live with myself somehow." But how? How is Frank Black or Nancy Pelosi or Clémence Michallon going to live with themselves in Orange America? The answer is, they're not. They can't. They won't. That's the reason for the November 3rd coup, the 1/6 insurrection,  the southern boarder invasion, the Afghanistan fiasco and the global financial collapse. It's why Biden doesn't give a shit about his approval ratings and why Congress is willing to flush more money down the Ukrainian toilet in direct contradiction of their constituents demands. The leadership class has decided to give up on the pickup truck driving men who inhabit their earth but simply won't agree to be governed by their whimsical and unnatural laws. They have decided to burn it all down and leave nothing but smoldering embers for the creatures to inhabit in their deplorable and irredeemable land.

What time is it?

"Proof"

You're minding your business on West Pico Blvd. when some zonked beyond belief broad staggers into your shop, makes a mad dash to the water closet and pukes all over the toilet. The Agent Smith's in her security detail position themselves at the bathroom door and stand guard while the First Daughter-In-Law cleans the vomit off her face and arms. After giving you the nod to keep your mouth shut and clean up the mess these watchmen escort this unaccountable twist out the backdoor and into the society from whence she came. I'm not making this up - it just happened last night for real and I've got photographic proof of the aftermath (not that I needed any) for all you "show me the proof", "I haven't seen any evidence", "it's probably Russian disinformation" ass-holes who NEED "proof" for every obvious thing that ever happens in this life. You might be one of those people and if you are I'm glad you stumbled upon this KOTCB blog because I have proof for almost every opinion, accusation and prognostication I make and even when I don't have proof I've got something better - intuition.

You see, there's a problem with proof and the mistakes people make when false and conniving "proof" is presented to them with a maddening and evil (there's no other word for it) self-assurance. Don't just accept the proof without looking deeper and weighing the truth of any evidence by the intuitive light the radiates from your soul. The Bard conjured the tale of Cymbeline to impart this important lesson through Posthumus's base jealousy and betrayal of true-hearted Imogen due to his eronious belief of Iachimo's seductive proofs. Treachery is everywhere and for all time so when 50 former intelligence officials claim that the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop is probably Russian espionage and disinformation designed to sabotage Jo(((K)))e Brandon's presidential aspirations just remember the name Melissa Cohen. She's no Imogen but the South African filmmaker is what We the People will have to settle for as the current unpleasant drama plays out in Washington DC.


Are you a person who knows what time it is? By that I mean, do you need a watch or iPhone or television bug in the lower left corner to "prove" that it's 6:29 PM PT or can you just pretty much estimate that it's about 6:30ish? I'm the kind of guy who just sort of knows the time and I never wear a watch - haven't for decades - because I don't really believe in time as we measure it in the modern world. But I'll tell you something kind of funny with regards to Hunter's laptop and the gigabytes of "compromise" proof that is stored on it (not by Russians) and available for all to see (including the FBI since Dec. 2019) and that is this - everyone in the DC Swamp has a laptop. I mean, you start publishing people's laptops and all hell is going to break loose and do you, dear reader, think that Hunter Biden is a one-off, a bad apple, an anomaly among the nepotistic thieves public servents who "represent" the saps voters of this once great nation? Your leaders and their #FakeNews media ass-lickers don't want to have all their bribes and porn splashed across the screens of America because it's bad for business. Corruption and foreign influence peddling doesn't disqualify the Biden family from high office - this vice and treason is THE REASON they got tapped for the job.

The Situation in Ukraine

And it's not just the dingy bag-man from Delaware who's compromised and controlled - it's about 2/3 of everyone on The Hill. These people just voted to send $40 Billion to Ukraine for war with Russia (and for other purposes). H.R.7691 - Making emergency supplemental appropriations for assistance for the situation in Ukraine for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022, and for other purposes. You might have heard about "the situation in Ukraine" which has been going on since February and, thanks to Congress, doesn't look like it will be ending any time soon. Not that Congress, by which I mean the political body comprised of "elected" representatives, has any idea what "the situation" is or where the $40B just appropriated will be going - they didn't even read the legislation! It's hard to get too worked up over congressperson X who is no more responsible for his/her actions than Hunter Biden's wife. First time readers of the KOTCB blog will probably want proof for that assertion so if you scroll to the General Provisions section of the Act you'll find this:
  1. Sec. 604. Funds appropriated by this Act for intelligence or intelligence related activities are deemed to be specifically authorized by the Congress for purposes of section 504(a)(1) of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 3094(a)(1)).
And the NSA Act of 1947 has this interesting clarification:
The first order of business in section 504(a)(1) of the NSA Act of 1947 as amended in 50 U.S.C. 3094(a)(1) passed into law in August of 1991 is this:
  • SEC. 601. REPEAL OF HUGHES-RYAN AMENDMENT.
  • Section 662 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (22 U.S.C.2422) is repealed.
Why is that important? Well, the Hughes-Ryan amendment required the President of the United States to report all covert actions of the Central Intelligence Agency to one or more Congressional committees. So if you know how to read the evidence you'll have "proof" that the politicians in Washington DC take their orders from whoever is receiving this money (that would be the IC) through the National Security Act and a common citizen subject is of no consequence to lawmakers from either political party. It's a rigged system, sure, but it's far beyond rigged - it's completely unaccountable and directed by unknown authors putting on a show. It is time... It is long past time to pull back the curtain and see who's producing this fiasco.
