"Tel Aviv Jane Steps in her Own Fewmets
Oh the delicious irony. I keep coming back to the Apocalypse factor and all of the revelations that continue to surface as per the dictionary meaning of Apocalypse;
apocalypse c.1384, "revelation, disclosure," from Church L. apocalypsis "revelation," from Gk. apokalyptein "uncover," from apo- "from" (see apo-) + kalyptein "to cover, conceal". Not a day goes by that something doesn’t crawl out from under the rocks, like those strange creatures you see appearing on the beach as the sun goes down in
Jane Harman, the Zio-con Congresswoman who covers the ground from Santa Monica to San Pedro has been caught offering to subvert the course of justice or, as they call it in Congress, performing ‘business as usual’. The delicious irony is that Jane was a serious player in all of the illegal shit that the Bushitas got up to and she got nailed by a legal version of all the illegal operations she was such a cheerleader for. You won’t find any mention of her being Jewish anywhere in the MSM because that would connect certain dots in the mind of the public that have been connected so many times before by so many dual national traitors in the last several decades that well… I don’t really know what to say here. I really don’t.
As usual there’s the implication of a lot more going on in the background and if you’ve got the sort of mind that some of us have, who still have a mind, you might speculate about whether it was
Then we’ve got another strange suicide by a guy in charge of the books at the place that used to be home turf for this guy. Oh, what the heck, certainly that deserves two news items. There doesn’t seem to be too many details coming out about this, which usually means there’s a lot involved in setting the stage for what we are supposed to believe because the truth just won’t do at all. In the meantime we have this. And we also have the looming specter of the next 9/11 that is on the drawing board somewhere and which involves the same neo-con architects, while the agencies appointed to protect the national interest are also headed by dual nationals who are loyal to another government besides the one they were created to serve. One has only to look at Michael Chertoff and Joe Lieberman’s positions and one can be forgiven for being apprehensive in the extreme. You can see whose interests are being served by Homeland Insecurity right here.
It doesn’t matter what government agency you look into these days. You are almost certain to find a dual national in charge or highly placed there. Obama’s cabinet looks like lunch hour at a New York Deli. Then there’s the looting of
Something has to happen and something will happen but… I have no idea what that is. You know how it is when you see a cockroach? You know there are a whole lot more of them hidden in the walls and other out of sight locations. I never see any in
I guess I have to say that crime is the normal character of government and business in the
So, I see things like this and I read all the explanations that people give for why and then I look at
Something has to happen and something will happen sooner or later. I think that some things are a lot closer than they appear, just like objects in your car’s wing mirror.
Where I live there are criminals who go around in trucks and empty houses of ALL of their contents; appliances, fixtures, the tile on the floor, the windows… everything. There are criminals everywhere and depending on the state of the economy there may be more criminals at one time than another. When the people making the laws and enforcing the laws are criminals then, it is only natural that many an enterprising soul will also take to crime.
Some days I sit here reflecting on all of this sordid business and how it affects the quality of life. These things get inside my head and send off poisonous fumes. It dulls the natural impetus for joie de vive and I have to go outside and do some kind of work among the olive trees …or the succulents in the planters that I built to remind me… to remind me that there is another side to life besides epidemic corruption and the violence of business interests expressing themselves through a nation’s military upon whatever hapless souls might be living in the targeted landscape.
It’s an act of treason to tell the truth. It’s an affair of slander to tell the truth. It’s against the law to tell the truth. It’s against the law to question lies and it’s a dangerous act to protest against injustice in a public way. Meanwhile, bland announcers and world leaders talk in circles about why this is happening and why that has to happen as if they were discussing the weather instead of deciding to torture and murder people.
The president of the
We need a revolution more than a person being waterboarded needs oxygen. We need something to rise up in the hearts and minds of the people of the world; some kind of spontaneous revelation accompanied by a collective resistance to the perpetuation of criminal behavior abroad and at home.
Something has to get ignition in the common mind. Something needs to change so that we can find something to believe in. I sit here waiting. I know it can’t go on like this. It just can’t go on like this. I don’t really know what to say here. I really don’t.
