Now that I know... 

Back when Don Rumsfeld and Saddam Hussein were pals and I ran into Jeremy Bentham on a daily basis, my best friend was a lovely Iranian lady that studied art with me. When we weren’t talking about art, we argued about geopolitics. She always argued against American imperialism and I argued against her arguments. At the time I didn’t know much about geopolitics but I couldn’t believe the things she told me. Her integrity was beyond question, so I assumed that she simply didn’t know what she was talking about, (perhaps a victim of "anti-American propaganda.") She used to get pretty upset at me, but always within the boundary of friendship; now I know how difficult that must have been for her.

M, you were correct about almost everything. I apologize for doubting your knowledge and belittling your passion. Now we both know that I was an ignorant fool back then; thank you for being such a good friend despite that. –B.A.C.A.B.

Mojo Rising 

I just woke up from a nap with the name Mo Udall on my mind. I looked it up and found out among other things that the man had a glass eye for most of his life.

Your Integrity is a Wonderland 

Speaking of waiting - have you heard John Mayer’s new song, "Waiting for the World to Change?" It’s the quintessential 21st century American political statement, and one of the lamest songs I have ever heard. It’s so bad that it almost manages to taint the Vaughan Brothers’ "Tick Tock" just by quoting it.

I don’t usually pick on youngsters, but this one has the power to shape public opinion, (although the song in question denies it.) I hope he is at least being paid well to shit on his artistic career.

Being the late bloomer that I am, I was surprised to learn that the "mainstream media" is packed with neofascist assets. Now that I know, I can see that it’s not confined to the mainstream media. Some are out in the open but most are incognito.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the princes and princesses of popular culture to risk anything of value on your behalf.

Trajectories 

If you’re waiting for people like Paul Hackett, Ned Lamont, and Jim Webb to save this country, (and its victims,) I’m afraid that you will be disappointed.

Nothing will change for the better until this political system is reformed by people that truly care about things like democracy, justice, and you. Until then, most Democratic candidates will continue to emerge from the same putrid pit as their Republican counterparts.

The predators have only one goal at this point: to fool you and stall you long enough to permanently strip you of your political power. There is no plan to withdraw from Iraq or to change this country’s foreign or domestic policies. It’s pathetic that the "left" in this country is so easily deceived; all it takes is a public declaration that Bush is a bad boob and Iraq is a bad war.

Some people argue that electing candidates like Hackett, Lamont, and Webb is the first step on the road to reform. And they cite the Republican Party’s 40 year road to power as the example to follow.

Why solve our problems now when we have so much time?

Friends, I’m not here to rush you. I’m here to tell you what I see, show you who I am, and stand beside you through this crisis. If I’m correct about the two trajectories I see, the large one has too much momentum to be stopped, and the small one is the light to rebuild by.

I have begun to prepare myself for the landing.

Blog Note 

I would like to say a few words about the “Information & Commentary” links I deleted.

First, I deleted the link to truthout because I saw enough of Will Pitt’s fishy behavior on Democratic Underground to convince me that he has ulterior motives.

Second, I deleted the link to the Huffington Post because that site isn’t what it used to be; it’s practically worthless now that most of the honest, humane voices have been replaced by professional manipulators. Recently I posted 4 comments on 4 separate threads and only John Murtha was decent enough to publish my comment. The other day someone posted a great comment on one of the threads and it disappeared a few minutes later. Fuck that.

Third, I deleted the links to BuzzFlash and the Smirking Chimp because I was never fond of those sites to begin with, and now it appears that they’re going the way of the Huffington Post.

Last, I deleted the link to Democratic Underground because it has become primarily a costume party for rightists. There are still good people there and I will continue to visit on a daily basis, but I don’t know how much longer that will last.

I’m going to leave the links to Antiwar and Lew Rockwell because I appreciate their anti-war views. But I have to tell you that Libertarian philosophy creeps me out where it overlaps with rightist ideology.

GWOT BS 

The "global war on terror" is as big as the predators say it is; they should know - it’s their game. Proposals for them to scale it down miss the point. There are no half measures when it comes to this sort of thing. You either support their attempt to dominate the Muslim portion of the world, or you don’t.

Alternatives like "war on terror lite" and "smarter war on terror" are as appealing as "subjugation lite" and "smarter tyranny."

You either play their game, or you don’t. I don’t, because the only thing the predators are honest about is its scale. Their game offends my conscience and violates my humanity.

I don’t play their game, because it’s evil. It disgraces and destroys life simply because its enthusiasts are vicious people. Their integrity deficit is stunning.

By the way, have you noticed that they’re struggling to maintain control of the narrative?

The Power of Prophecy 

The anti-Christ is the devilish device that guards Christianity’s pagan thrones. The Messiah is the human being that defeats the device and retires the thrones.

Christianity 

It succeeds when it treats Jesus as an ideal; it fails when it makes him an idol. The business of surrendering one’s spiritual sovereignty to another person is idolatry. Worshipping a human being as a God is more sophisticated than worshipping animals or objects, but it’s still idolatry.

Jesus was an exceptionally talented messenger and guide - exceptional enough to deserve a civilization. But this blood-soaked Roman civilization is not worthy of him.
