The NRA Has Become an Insane Pro-Trump Organization

The NRA is so utterly disgusting:

The NRA went silent in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 and injured hundreds.
But now the extremist gun group has roared back to life with an utterly chilling ad calling for retribution against any and all critics of Donald Trump.
The ad ends with a call to arms to gun owners, and declares that Trump’s detractors will “perish in the political flames of their own fires.”
Fronted by NRA spokesperson and serial liar Dana Loesch, the web video is a bizarre montage of imagery designed to quicken the pulse of NRA supporters who back Trump.
It insists that Trump is not to be questioned or challenged, and describes Americans exercising their First Amendment right to call Trump out as “saboteurs” who want to “drive their daggers through the heart of our future.”
LOESCH: We are witnesses to the most ruthless attack on a president, and the people who voted for him, and the free system that allowed it to happen in American history. From the highest levels of government, to their media, universities and billionaires, their hateful defiance of his legitimacy is an insult to each of us.
But the ultimate insult is that they think we’re so stupid that we’ll let them get away with it. These saboteurs, slashing away with their leaks and sneers, their phony accusations and gagging sanctimony, drive their daggers through the heart of our future, poisoning our belief that honest custody of our institutions will ever again be possible, so they can then build their utopia from the ashes of what they burned down.
No, their fate will be failure and they will perish in the political flames of their own fires. We are the National Rifle Association of America. And we are Freedom’s Safest Place.
Loesch’s whining that we are “witnesses to the most ruthless attack on a president … in American history” would be a surprise to Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinely, and John F. Kennedy — who were all killed while in office.
Trump has been subject to well-deserved scrutiny and skepticism, most of which he has brought on himself by being a racist and liar. The NRA is simply angry that Trump is being held accountable for his behavior.
...
The NRA does not want to be held accountable for enabling gun violence as it pumps out violent messages and lies, obstructs research into gun violence, and throws millions of dollars at Congress to continue enabling a plague of violent crime from coast to coast.
Whenever there has been a mass shooting in the last few years — Sandy Hook, Aurora, the Pulse night club in Orlando, and dozens of others — the NRA intentionally goes silent. The organization knows that when a shooting and its victims are fresh in the minds of the public, its message of unfettered gun access and the ensuing violence that entails is rejected by the vast majority of Americans.
The NRA uses this quiet period to play the long game, hoping that measures to help advance gun safety and protect people from violence will simply fade away from public discussion and pass into memory.
When it comes back from its shameful silence, it produces videos like these, or pushes out magazines designed to appeal to supporters’ fears of an imminent ISIS invasion prevented by their handguns.
The NRA needs fear to work, but it cannot deal in rational or sane thinking. It needs hyperbole and deception to thrive, which means it needs figures like Donald Trump around.
What's really sick is how the NRA, which basically is a lobbying group for gun manufacturers and gun collecting nuts, actually INCREASES their membership after mass shootings by running membership drives and stoke fears of gun control, so gun sales go up massively. Who benefits from gun massacres? The NRA and gun manufacturers.

David Talbot on JFK File Release by CIA

"One day after the CIA blocked the full release of JFK documents, in defiance of the law, it's more clear than ever who's running the Trump administration. Your lawful right as an American citizen to your own history has been "denied in full," to use the bureaucratic language of the spy agency that tells the president of the United States what he can and cannot do. Trump's tweeted explanation for why he caved to CIA pressure said it all: "I have no choice — today — but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our nation’s security.” 

 Wow...."I HAVE NO CHOICE." Ponder that one for a moment. The president of the United States has no choice when the CIA makes its will known to him. 

Trump still insists that after six months -- or maybe another 25 years -- the American people will be granted full "transparency." But Roger Stone, the Trump advisor who's been courageously pushing for full release of the Kennedy records, has been around the block in Washington too long to have much faith in this:

“If the data dump that the National Archives did in July of a small amount of JFK-related material is any indication, the fallback of the intelligence agencies appears to be redact and withhold as much of this information as possible,” Stone stated yesterday. “They’ll use the broad rubric of national security. If the censorship is so great to make the president’s order meaningless, it’ll get litigated in the courts.”

When it came to this defining moment in American history -- over whether we are a closed or open society -- it was the CIA's authoritarian director Mike Pompeo, not Stone, who prevailed in the Oval Office.

What exactly is the CIA still hiding by blocking the full release of these papers? Here's a partial list:

1. The travel records of key CIA suspects in the the Kennedy assassination, including William Harvey, Howard Hunt and David Morales. Were they in Dallas shortly before or on Nov. 22, 1963, as evidence suggests?

2. Did Allen Dulles -- the embittered former CIA director fired by JFK -- go to the top-secret CIA facility in northern Virginia known as "The Farm on Nov. 22, 1963, as his own calendar indicates? Why was he there -- despite having been pushed out of the CIA two years earlier? With whom did he meet and speak with on the phone?

3. A tape of the William Harvey interview conducted by the Church Committee behind closed doors on 4/10/75 -- long withheld by the CIA. By the mid-'70s, Harvey -- a Kennedy-hater who ran the CIA's assassination program -- suspected that he was being thrown to the wolves by the agency to which he'd devoted his life. He might very well have had some interesting things to say about his former colleagues.

4. A 338-page file on J. Walton Moore, the head of the CIA office in Dallas at the time of the assassination. Moore assigned George de Mohrenschildt -- a Russian speaking, globe-trotting oilman and CIA asset -- to babysit Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas. This file is certain to add to the overwhelming evidence that "the fingerprints of U.S. intelligence were all over Oswald," as Sen. Richard Schweiker of the Church Committee famously said.

5. An 18-page dossier on Gordon McClendon, a Dallas businessman who conferred with Jack Ruby just before he shot Oswald. McClendon was a CIA-connected media entrepreneur who ran a right-wing radio network in the Southwest. As Ruby was arrested, he shouted out for McClendon.

6. Withheld -- or destroyed: Oswald's "201" file compiled by the CIA's Office of Security, presided over by the ghostly James Jesus Angleton. According to Judge John Tunheim, former head of the Assassination Records Review Board, "I have no doubt Angleton destroyed (JFK) files," when he took control of the CIA's internal investigation of the assassination.

Despite any agency purging and tampering that has occurred over the years, don't believe the "experts" who are telling us there's nothing in these JFK files of any significance. There's a reason that the CIA is still hiding this material...because it points directly at the agency itself in the killing of President John F. Kennedy and the coverup.

"The Other Zapruder Film"

Rich Dellarosa: The Other Zapruder Film - Black Op Radio 2-26-09 


Such a fascinating story, and just a reminder that anyone who relies on the famous Zapruder film that is widely available on Youtube, is making a big mistake, because that "official" film is greatly altered.

The Russians Have Been Pushing Disinfo on the US for Many Years

... certainly they were doing it well before the 2016 election.

This Dmitri Khazelov guy who pushed the silly WTC basement nuke theory is a perfect example. He was admitted Russian intelligence and pushed ridiculous claims.

Along these lines, Russia Today frequently pushed 9/11 conspiracy theories (not that these were all "wrong" but it did have the effect of destabilizing trust in the US govt).

The goal of Russia is/was to sow confusion and distrust of the US government by US citizens. It's clever because there is reason to distrust the government, but they can strongly enhance it for their own ends, and push their own confusing but professionally presented theories, to enhance distrust.

I think it does make a lot of sense that Putin's Russian government was waging a disinformation campaign against the US, part of asymmetrical warfare against the US, since we are their major geopolitical foe. A lot on this disinformation campaign has come out since the election.

So this all gets into a tricky area, previously familiar to lefties in the US during the USSR era, where they were often falsely accused of treason or having common political goals for having some degree of shared political views (i.e. mild socialism). 

Obviously, I have long pushed conspiracy theories here that have a similar effect of sowing distrust in the US govt. Facts are facts but political power is often based on lies, particularly in a huge complicated superpower like the US.

I've long maintained that it is important to expose lies like 9/11, but as I have discussed endlessly here, this truth is suppressed and controlled for the US to maintain power over the people.

Overall, two major points:
 1) Russian propaganda to help Trump was not about 9/11, not exactly clear why, but maybe because that was not partisan enough and hurt the GOP. Though I did see some fake reports right before the election that Trump was going to re-investigate 9/11 and find the truth.
2) Russia has pushed major propaganda on the US for a number of years before this past election.

Re-Reading "Wagging the Moondoggie"

Still great stuff, and really not really dated at all, all things considered (written between 2009 and 2011 by the now sadly deceased Dave McGowan).

Definitely worth another read! Oh, by the way, the old site is gone so the articles have been put up at a new website: http://centerforaninformedamerica.com

Or you can listen in podcast form now!


Yes, this is an official photo of the landing module from NASA!

Apollo Hoax 2017

Some good stuff in here, particularly in the second half on the "puppet-string" action and the sounds.



One interesting idea here is expressed at the end: they make a "patriotic" case for the Apollo hoax-- that it was a cold war "victory" without firing any shots or violence, and that we should honor the astronauts....

What I'm Thinking About Lately...

Donald Trump is still a completely despicable asshole-- and to quote Sec. of State Tillerson, Trump is also "a fucking moron".

The sooner Trump is removed from office, the better for everyone. He is not going to change.

The only positive thing about Trump is he's too damn stupid to do anything super nefarious, like a major covert operation or to use the full powers of the government to enact his will.

However, he could still easily start a nuclear war or a very costly conventional war with North Korea.

-------------

Nazis and white supremacists are terrible and evil, and they are resurgent because Trump himself is clearly a white supremacist.

------------

I have no patience for gun massacre conspiracies anymore. First, there are just too many of them, there's clearly some terrible pathology in our culture that causes this, and not the big bad "gubmint" set on taking away our guns. Second, the worst of the idiot conspiracy-minded Republicans are in complete charge of the government, and if they can't bust apart the conspiracies that run big gun massacres or stop them form happening, then they are hypocritical assholes and fucking useless. Show the complete evidence Sandy Hook was a hoax or GTFO.

-------------

Global warming/Climate change/Climate disruption is almost certainly worse than most scientists want to admit, and getting worse. The ghoulish idiot Republicans are actually pressing the gas pedal to the floor as we race to complete climate disaster.

-------------

I been thinking a lot about intelligent entities that are able to exist only in the electromagnetic spectrum. If our species continues to make technological progress (and doesn't make the planet unlivable), two things are very likely:
1) we will have very advanced artificial (digital-computerized) intelligence
2) we will be able to move our own consciousness into the digital-computerized realm.

Thus two types of digital-computerized intelligence will exist that can be transferred into the electromagnetic spectrum.

The big question is-- are there far more advanced civilizations that have already done this, elsewhere in the universe? It seems very likely.

So we could have extra-terrestrial intelligence -- even individual entities -- that exist in the electromagnetic spectrum, that could be sent to earth at the speed of light.

Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence on the Electromagnetic Spectrum = "ETIES"

I wonder if such beings could then infect us or merge into our consciousness-- they could conceivably do all sort of things to us. Specifically they could do good things like give human beings ideas for technology, or if these ETIES are evil, they could promote psychotic behavior.

Jay Weidner has talked a lot about evil entities called the "Archons" over the years. I never knew what to make of that idea exactly, but I'd say now I have some idea how such being could exist and inset themselves into humanity. How many conspiracies/evil events can be tied to ETIES?

LBJ Knew the Vietnam War was Hopeless in 1964

“What do you think about this Vietnam thing?” Johnson begins. “I’d like to hear you talk a little bit.”
“Well, frankly, Mr. President,” Russell answers, “it’s the damn worse mess that I ever saw, and I don’t like to brag and I never have been right many times in my life, but I knew that we were going to get into this sort of mess when we went in there. And I don’t see how we’re ever going to get out of it without fighting a major war with the Chinese and all of them down there in those rice paddies and jungles. I just don’t see it. I just don’t know what to do.”
“Well, that’s the way I have been feeling for six months,” Johnson says. “Our position is deteriorating and it looks like the more we try to do for them, the less they are willing to do for themselves,”
Russell replies—expressing a view that grew to be a core conclusion of Americans in Vietnam. “It is a mess,” Russell continues, “and it’s going to get worse, and I don’t know how or what to do. I don’t think the American people are quite ready for us to send our troops in there to do the fighting.”
(snip)
Then LBJ asks the key question: “How important is it to us?”
“It isn’t important a damn bit for all this new missile stuff,” Russell says—meaning that with strategic missiles like the ones the Soviet Union was developing, holding one patch of ground has little if any military significance. “I guess it is important,” the president says. “From a psychological standpoint,” says Russell.
But the senator then goes further. “Other than the question of our word and saving face, that’s the reason that I said that I don’t think that anybody would expect us to stay in there. It’s going to be a headache to anybody that tries to fool with it. You’ve got all the brains in the country, Mr. President—you better get ahold of them. I don’t know what to do about this. I saw it all coming on, but that don’t do any good now, that’s water over the dam and under the bridge. And we are there.”
The talk moves to the pressure LBJ feels from his advisers to remain in South Vietnam, and to the demands from Republicans for escalation. The fear of a Chinese intervention—as happened in Korea—is on both of their minds; memories of Republican attacks on the Truman administration for “losing China” and for the Korean stalemate, gnawed at LBJ, who feared the political consequences of withdrawal.
“Well, they’d impeach a president, though, that would run out, wouldn’t they?” he asks.
“I don’t think they would,” Russell assures him.
“I don’t know how in hell you’re going to get out, unless they [the South Vietnamese government] tell you to get out,” Russell says. Exiting the conflict would be politically feasible, he adds, only if a new head of the country “were to get and say, ‘Now, you damn Yankees get out of here, I’m running the government now.’”
“Wouldn’t that pretty well fix us in the eyes of the world and make us look mighty bad?” Johnson asks.
“Well, I don’t know, we don’t look too good right now,” Russell replies, adding, “going in there with all the troops, sending them all in there, I’ll tell you it'll be the most expensive adventure this country ever went into.”
LBJ does not disagree.

And that was that-- a horrible waste and crime against humanity went on for 10 years. 

Of course Afghanistan is a similar situation, and we can well imagine at least Obama having a similar conversation. Not clear about GW Bush and Trump, but maybe.

So fucked up, the ego and nationalism that gets tied up in these sick wars.
