Fuck Fox News: Why Democracy has failed and cash is government.

Why Democracy has failed… Cash is government… A FOX NEWS transparency statement.Having learned to become a pro-se lawyer, and having spent the past two years fighting the Trump Campaign, (and associates), in court, to the extent that my case is moving into discovery, I know how to write a legal memo. So, when I found out Fox News fraudulently doctored one of my videos, I wrote them a stern legal memo.

If you are unfamiliar with the controversy in question, during a live-stream of the Portland protests, there were a group of kids, (accompanied by adults), carrying signs that read, “Fuck The Police,” (and similar slogans). Soon after, it came to my attention that right-wing lie peddler Andy Ngo had appeared to have ripped the video, taking off my watermark, posting it to his sock account “Brittany31,” and piggy-backing off of that. Andy’s doctored version of my video was retweeted by Senators, Governors and the dimwit President’s son. Dozens of articles were written, all with their re-purposed pro-cop, bootlicking agenda.

Shortly after that, Fox News reached out to me for permission to use the clip on Ingraham Angle. I responded, “Fuck Fox News,” which was a clear denial to use said clip. Their request was a clear acknowledgment that they knew the video belonged to me— (which is not surprising, since they have a lovely relationship with Andy). Even still— they went ahead and used the clip— and took the extra step of watermarking a credit to “Brittany31” over my video. This is where it is no longer a question of fair use— and a clear act of fraud.

Well, within an hour of sending the brief to Fox’s legal team, they were on the phone.

The problem is that when crimes like this are committed, the cops aren’t going to show up at Fox News and arrest Laura Ingraham. You have to sue— and many legal scholars describe this process as coming to an agreement as to the monetary value for committing a crime. There is no justice— only payoffs. Cash is government. And under global capitalism, companies like Fox News have more money than God and can do what they want. They will run down your bank account with legal fees and hold you up in court— which is exactly what Trump has done to me.

When I have had private discussions about these things with friends, (who aren’t in the legal profession), they shout, “fuck ‘em in the ass,” and “burn those fuckers down!” Nothing would make me more pleased. But as previously noted, I have been in court for a solid two years on an assault and battery case from FIVE YEARS ago. That’s already cost me thousands of dollars— and every waking hour of 2019— which was terrible for my health— and I could still end up losing because of a bullshit judgement— which happens all the time. This is all to say, I know all too well what the negotiation process is like— and I also know that I don’t have the time to be a pro-se lawyer on more than one case at a time.

So, I decided to listen to what Fox News had to say when they got on the phone. They offered me $5,000.00.

That’s basically the equivalent of an attorney retainer fee— and they know it.

With a legal team behind me, maybe I could pull $100k out of them. Who knows? But it was never about money— and this is the slippery slope. There’s no justice— just compensation. The video audio/visual industry has been destroyed because of Covid— so I have no source of income. I have received ZERO Covid bucks.

I’ve done everything in my power to fight the power… The best I could do was draft this letter, which I sent to Fox to make it clear that what the settlement would mean, if I take it:

“Fox News/ Ingraham Angle agrees to pay Roderick Webber $5,000.00 for the airing of Webber’s “Fuck the Police” video which Webber created on July 22nd, 2020 and which Webber denied permission to Ingraham Angle/ Fox News for use, and which Ingraham Angle nonetheless used shortly thereafter in a fraudulent manner.

This compensatory payment is for the single use of the video which Ingraham Angle made for that one episode of the show. Webber is not authorizing future use of the work, nor is he giving up his copyright claim to his own work.

As noted previously, Ingraham Angle/ Fox News clearly used the clip against Webber’s wishes, fraudulently giving credit to a person or entity, (Brittany31, likely a sock account of Andy Ngo), who had no part in the production of the video— a fact which Ingraham Angle was aware of before broadcasting.

The $5,000.00 compensation is an acknowledgement of wrong-doing, and should not be viewed as authorization for Ingraham Angle or Fox News to use the clip in future productions of any Ingraham Angle episodes or other Fox News programs.”

I don’t like this at all. It’s a goddam ugly slippery slope. If there are any lawyers who want to help fight, or financiers who would like to purchase the clip and take on the fight yourself— I am open to suggestions. But, barring that— this is sadly how our system works. Money has become speech… And as a result, I don’t see how I can continue to do my work with the economy as it is. Shit is going down folks. If you have the means to support, I set up a Patreon- something I said I’d never do.

Depending on the response to this transparency notice we’ll see how I respond to Fox.See you in the apocalypse!

Thanks,

Dating for Accelerationists

So— Lauren says I’ve become nihilistic. Or, my talk the other night was nihilistic. The word she was looking for was Anaxiphilia or Anaxiphilic. Maybe someone will look it up.

Without a doubt, she was an inspiration for some of the things I said— and she certainly has changed my thinking about a wide variety of things— thus prompting my chat by the lava lamp.

But I’m not a nihilist. If I was a nihilist, I’d say and do nothing at all— or shoot heroine and get on Tinder.
You wanna talk about nihilistic? How fucking dead inside do you have to be, that you get on an app in order to find intimacy with another human being? People are so disengaged with others right next to them, that you gotta fill out a questionnaire and send photos to determine who’s going to throw a dick in you.

That’s fucked up.

No wonder the world is devolving. if your ability to spend time at the gym determines who gets to reproduce— what’s the point in fighting for the future of humanity? We’ll be a planet of two kinds of people: TRAILER TRASH— and super-fit super-models who spend their days and nights sashaying down the runway and finger banging each other for sport.

That’s what you want? A planet of trailer parks and Zoolanders? Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for people getting their freak on (in a sexual sense)— people used to wave their freak flags— in the sense that they did shit with their lives that was interesting. As they say– I don’t wanna revolution if I can’t dance– but if you ain’t partying with a purpose, there will be no revolution!

Now, people perform for their friends on social media. Look— I’m doing it right now— but at least I’m here to talk about shit that I have done in real life.

But, I also guess it all depends on how you define “interesting.” At one time, if you wanted to meet other accelerationists, you had to go on a date with Tim Pool, or get your ass down to the local klan meeting. Now accelerationism is for both the right and the left— and you can find each other on Tinder—

So, I’ve gotta ask myself, what are the check boxes like that help you to determine a potential mate?

Let’s see.

Here I am on Tinder.
I’m a man. Age 500— because I’m a mutant. About me: I made some movies with fancy-pants Hollywood people— but now I make political documentaries in which I go undercover to troll powerful political figures such as Jeb Bush, Joe Biden and Donald Trump. I am interested in someone interested in similar activities— Maybe someone who enjoys heckling bootlickers at Blue Lives Matter rallies.

Type, type, type. And send.

Golly. I am sure people will be sending me photos of their panties in no time!

But until those panties start rolling in— let’s look at some other profiles.

Woman. Age 32. Seeking man.

Hey! I’m a man!

Ooh— she’s got that meme where it says: Me at the beginning of 2020: She’s wearing a Bernie shirt. Part two is “Me at the end of 2020.” She’s got a big rifle and an anarchist t-shirt. And of course it’s one of those undercut things so you can see the bottom of her breasts.

Let’s see her description:
Former occupier. Once went on a date with Tim Pool. Was all in for Bernie Sanders, but Joe Biden wrote the Patriot Act and will doom us to an eternity of hellfire. Time to burn this shit down. Fuck 12. Fuck Blue Lives Matter. Viva La Revolucion.

Wow. This woman sounds perfect. Maybe I was wrong— and Tinder really is the answer.

Oh wait— there’s one last asterisk at the bottom of the page: She writes— You must have a bed with a bed frame. No Anarchists doing anarchist shit. I need my comfort— and when the revolution is over, I’m going to need a nice place to come home to. Please have a 401k, stock options and a two-car garage.

What a let down…

Mainly because I’ve secretly got all of those things— but her desire to have these comforts as opposed to the values she espouses is such a turn off.

Oh well.


BANNER
Did any of you ever see the Trump Billboard banner drop I did in 2017?
Or maybe you saw the time I wrote Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself on the wall at Art Basel…
Or when I wrote EpSTAIN didn’t Kill Himself on Epstein’s West Palm Beach mansion.
There’s still an arrest warrant out for that.

Anyhow— the 2017 Trump banner drop was back when Donnie had forbidden the CDC to utter 7 words— not to be confused with George Carlin’s 7 banned words— shit piss fuck cunt cocksucker motherfucker tits…

But the CDC words were: “science-based,” “evidence-based,” “transgender”, “diversity”, “vulnerable”, “entitlement” and “fetus.” Time Magazine got out some statistics. and as far as I can tell—President Cheeto’s ban was just some weird anti-science/ pro-jesus-juice virtue-signaling to Trump’s evangelicals. The fact that the CDC has played such a role in what’s going on with Covid, makes it even more fun.

But— the reason I bring it up is that it is no small feat that I make bad decisions on the level that I do. This is not just a strategy for driving away potential romantic partners— this is methodic bad-decision making, for the beautiful story of it all. And one day, the true mutants of the world will see what I’m doing and say, I wanna be a part of this!

The secret is simple. You schedule the stunt, you gather your materials. You get to the location. Take some drinks and pop some pills— and you are well on your way to carrying through with those bad decisions. Because how else are you going to climb up the scaffold to hang that Trump as Medusa banner?

I want to be clear— it’s not enough to be incompetent— You need to have a mind for bad decisions… Sobriety is not an option.
YOU DO THAT BY JAMMING A FUCKING VODKA TAMPON UP YOUR ASS!

And your dick needs to be swinging so hard that when the Officer Dibble shows up, you’re like I’M FUCKING INVINCIBLE!!!

If Johnny Law tries to put a rusty nail through your dick, you just have to grin and take it.

And if you wanna call this NIHILISM— then so be it— but at least it’s NIHILISM WITH A PURPOSE.

And of course, there’s a whole lot of privilege going on in this scenario….
BUT IT AINT NIHILISM!
I AM USING MY PRIVILEGE TO STICK IT TO THE MAN as he sticks a nail in my dick

Meanwhile, the worms in their cubicles died a thousand little deaths as they waste their days pushing paper in the name of bullshit.

But today I went out and lived!!!!

I conquered Donald Trump and that motherfucking billboard— like I conquered Art Basel, and Epstein’s mansion— and I conquered Pete Buttigieg, and Joe Biden, and John Kasich and Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham. What the fuck have you done?
You turned beer into piss.
To be fair— I’ve done that too— but— what else??!!

If we’re all going to die, I want to die saying I stood up to the ravenous badgers with burning claws trying to scratch holes in my skull!!

IS THIS NIHILISM!!
Nah. THIS IS NIHILISM WITH A PURPOSE!!
ARE WE WORMS— OR ARE WE BEINGS OF LIGHT!!
Who wants to get out of there and live?!!!!

Don’t give me that probation shit.

I know— everyone’s on probation.

We’ve all had our wings clipped.


Now that I got that out of the way— I wanna just remind you:  The United States can no longer be described as a representative democracy. The US government is a riot in progress straight-up looting the American people for all they’re worth.

Evictions are looming— and roughly 28 million people and families are soon to be fucked. It’s like we can see a human meat grinder in the distance and Uncle Sam is just tossing person after person headfirst into the shredder. They are screaming and crying, and there’s blood squirting everywhere. Dexter is measuring the length of the blood splatter. It’s a regular human slaughterhouse with eyeballs popping out and severed dicks flying in your face. And we can see all this looming in the distance, but people are carrying on like business as usual. Like this isn’t three times worse than the 2008 economic crisis with 10 million people losing their homes and having their balls removed via guillotine.

Which brings me to my next point. I was reading the comments section from my little fireside chat from Thursday— and YouTube never seems to disappoint in regard to its ability to fill my comments with right wing space Maggot bullshit.

This is an entry by zezt zezter:
It has never ceased to amaze me, cause i did art school, and love psychedelics, YET I have found that those types in my experience online are totally played by what is going on! Let me try summarize: they don’t seem to get what is going on, which is? THAT eg the BLM protests are PLANNED BY the elite, the Cabal. The Cabal are the elite nto the occult, the Kabballah, and this is why you see the occult isgnatures all over their evil shit including their numbers.

For example this ‘pandemic’ is a fukin PLANNED SCAM demic, and is riddled , worldwide, with the number 33. They use that number all the fukin time (will give example below). WHY? Because they love to think they are gods and know secret shit the vast majority don’t so they will use it a) as a communication for those in the cluuuurb, that we are not in and b) as both a mindcontrol , like their usual propaganda, and also as a form of magicK (WITH A K) which they believe in Now see the so-called BLM protests are funded by the likes of billionire Soros, and HE is in their club, and they are working in tandam WITH the scam demic to bring about what they have previously planned in their 2010 ‘LOCKSTEP’ and 2019 ‘EVENT201” and is towards their Agenda 21/30 which is all about herding people into mega cities, and it becoming like China on fkin steroids! these sick fuks want more and more control over all all of us, REALLY, and nature. Viruses love the number 33 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAiVp7dmqoE Rosa Koire. UN Agenda 2030 exposed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PrY7nFbwAY 

Alright. 
That is some crazy shit— which maybe I’ll take some time to address in another one of my little chats by the lava lamp…But— I bring this up because if you look past this guy’s nutty reasoning, his overall premise is correct that this is a massive scam.

I don’t mean that I believe that centipedes are going to start crawling out of your ears whispering secrets from the Book of the Dead or some Freemason crap. But, our government is using the pandemic to make us all go broke, while enriching themselves. If that isn’t a scam of the highest proportions— then I don’t know what it. It’s the Biggest transfer of wealth in the history of the known world… Barring some kind of giant hollowed out ball of chocolate that you enter through the gates in Antarctica.
Let’s remember, the 1531 orontus phenius map shows Antarctica without ice and includes rivers and mountain ranges.

All that aside—

The US government are rioters looters and thieves. Rioters looters and thieves. Get that through your head. 

The US government are rioters looters and thieves— and they are burning down your house, your home, your family, and your community. 

How the fuck are you going to take your Rona money and and just stick it up your ass— excited to burn it up at the Applebees, now that they are open—

It’s as if you believe those checks will never end.
The streets are paved with milk and honey— and everything’s fine.

Well, take a look at someone like myself as a vision of the future.

Because I am a freelancer, I haven’t received a penny— not a single fucking penny from the stimulus package. And isn’t it just dandy to see some of you motherfuckers out there pontificating about getting hammered tonight.

Maybe this has added to my frustration.
The majority of the freelance employment which actually pays the bills comes through film and audio-visual gigs.

When covid hit— my PAYING GIGS went to ZERO. There are no jobs.

The closest thing I can call a job is live-streaming— and that’s because people have reached out to me to ask me to go out in the danger zones. And gladly, I did—
I was in the fires in Minneapolis, and at CHOP, and the protests in DC and New York. I have literally gone as far as I could go with whatever donations people have reached out to give me…

The point is— If Uncle Sam isn’t going to pony up some kind of universal basic income (TO ALL OF US) —requiring people not to work, then we should be getting back to work, pandemic or not. I mean— The US government CAN and SHOULD do UBI…

But they sold you out— and 1200 dollars won’t feed your family. The Democrats and Republicans have exploited this crisis making their friends billions, but leaving you with bills to pay.
The US jails journalists while dropping bombs on civilians. Armed militias take over our capitals, while black men are hunted like dogs in the street. Federal Agents shoot protesters in the face with tear gas canisters over nothing at all.

There is only one thing the elites care about any longer— feeding the monster. 

With a system so bloated, and overweight, you had better have a scrappy son of a bitch— Someone like Tiger King, with nothing to lose at the slop tray. The beneficiaries of the foul product regurgitated by the monster don’t want our best and brightest at the helm— the objective is to have someone willing to collect expired meat from Walmart to feed to the tigers to make more cubs, which draw the tourists which make the money which feeds the staff so they can help to bury the adult tigers in the back of the zoo when they have outlived their usefulness. 

Covid-19 has revealed America’s failed leadership to be a Ponzi scheme. They are determined to ruin us, and somehow we accept this is the only way.
The solution is simple: Demand UBI. Medicare for all. Bring home the troops and Hold police, politicians and bankers responsible for their crimes. 

Power gives nothing without a demand. So demand they do what’s right. don’t expect change by simply casting a vote.


Seriously— What are you going to do when the stimulus money runs out?

IT’S NOT NIHILISM!!

IT’S NIHILISM WITH A PURPOSE.


I should point out that I didn’t wanna do this.

I didn’t wanna be on WFNX when Swasey talked me into it back in the day— and I wasn’t so sure about Lauren encouraging me to come down to New Alliance— but she did. And what happened, happened.

I’m not a journalist. I’m not a DJ or a podcaster. I’m barely a musician or a filmmaker— at least by the standards of people that expect that I’ve gotta be raking in piles of money. I’m an artist. I went to art schools— RISD and the Museum School. My lawsuit against the Trump Campaign is like a performance art piece more than anything else. I thought it would be funny to learn to be a lawyer— I did. But there’s been nothing funny about it. Just endless headaches.

That said— I have battled a couple dozen lawyers for 177 motions in federal court— and the judge has allowed me to proceed against the Trump Campaign and a number of his associates on assault, battery false imprisonment fraud— and about a dozen civil rights violations. If the universe was just— someone from Trump’s law-firm has even been hired to watch through all of these videos to find shit like this to use against me. Fucking DARPA neuro-cortex communicator tin foil hat shit— but we’ll get to that in a minute.

Jackie Gleason’s wife claimed that Nixon took Gleason to see the alien bodies. It’s just a claim. It means nothing.

I’m just a guy who found himself in a strange place in a strange time, surrounded by space centipedes. Constantine’s vision before the Milvean bridge is one of the many historical events theorized to be an ET interaction. Again— meaningless. You can’t prove it. But, I have been told I have mutant powers of my own. It’s a rare thing what I do— and maybe there are others with radioactive octopus DNA surging through their blood. The problem is, there is no secret handshake— at least not that anyone has told me.

For a minute, I thought that Lauren was with us in the fight against the Spacemen.

but the fact that the US govt supposedly “lost” the tapes to the moon landing (the greatest achievement of mankind to that date), is highly suspicious. The funnest thing of all is that knowing that the US govt is prone to lying, it is not a credible scientific reporter. Even Noam concedes that MIT (his employer) is funded by the military industrial complex, and likely colors their findings. 

The thing is— as you may learn— there are some dangerous people out there with fucking strange plans for humanity— or so they’d like us to believe that.

I have put myself out there as someone willing to be a useful fool, as a means to convey some crazy stories. People want to tell me things.

And that’s what I was getting at on Thursday when I was talking about what goes on in the periphery.

There are things I can show you on a livestream— and then there’s what you see out of the corner of your eyes. Then there’s the things that people share with you when the cameras are off. And talking about some of it makes you come off sounding like a crazed conspiracy nut. So— I’m going to preface this once again by saying: Any of this DARPA targeted neuro-transmissions shit is just information I am being fed.

If you’re up for it— maybe later we’ll get into something called “the brain initiative.”

The fuck if I know.

But— I guess this is what the people want… so I’ll give it to them.
I don’t even think any of the stuff I said on the the little lava-lamp chat was particularly controversial. But I know some weird motherfuckers. I don’t know if they are government spooks, or just MK Ultra 2.0— but I’ve been keeping my mouth shut about a lot.

Basically because it’s goddamn unverifiable. This shit may as well be alien technology dropped in our laps by the space maggots.

So…

This dude—

This dude who I’m going to tell you about has dropped me mountains upon mountains of DARPA leaks and manuals and shit I’m not sure if people are supposed to see. I still don’t truly understand all of it— but I thought maybe I’d just let you get a glimpse of the crazy, and we’ll learn about it together. Maybe he’ll even chime in on the livestream and explain some of this himself.

I’m going to call this guy MR TIM… for reasons which may make sense later.

DARPA is the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency— a division of the DoD, otherwise known as the Department of Defense. Depending on whether or not you believe the various leaks floating around out there, there was a document from the DoD calling for the creation of Space Force in 2014— and I remember seeing it before Trump announced it.

It’s probably a bunch of LSD or whatever.

So, he’s given me a massive data dump which has probably put all kinds of spy software on my computer— and he wants me to check out something called the PAGE SIX Preface folder.
It’s about Auditory and visual cortex two-way communication. And it is driven on people and population running narratives. According to MR TIM— Agents are AI or IA

So— MR TIM says:
DARPA makes technology and then shelves it. Then they hire a private contractor to test it. It’s plausible deniability. The government can research to a degree— scrap it— let a private agency pick up their work, and then there is no oversight.

RW: And this is what I keep going on about with privatized tyranny. It is the problem with Republicans as well as the Libertarian party’s obsession with de-regulations.
The State is a menace— but precisely because the state is a menace is the reason that there must be regulations so that there is oversight. It is utterly paradoxical— but if shit is made by a private company— it’s private, and we’re done. We’re dirt. Eat a dick and goodnight.

MR TIM continues
At no point should you accuse DARPA of violating FAR human testing

Ok. Fair enough. But you see— he wants me to talk about this.

He continues:
I have tracked down the Private Contractors and started questioning them as well.
William Casebeer and Justin Sanchez, project leads have been moved since my talks with R&D Eddie Offermann of Facebook.
That was heading building 8 with Regina Dugan from DARPA.
She has ethics violations, and never should have been trusted on any neural security oversight.

Casebeer leaked attendance records of the first two years of meetings
and Individual testing is over – many people including myself (MR TIM) were part of that
The US Population is next— As the DSO file indicates.

So— what MR TIM is talking about is targeted neuro-transmissions. MR TIM, as well as a handful of other people I have met at protests have shared with me similar information— which of course is something I came across as far back as Texas in 2013. Supposedly, It’s like radio or microwaves they are able to fire into the neural cortex of your brain and make you hear voices, and do their bidding— the stuff of sci-fi novels and films.

I then tell MR TIM: I’m glad you’ve chosen me as the one to leak this Funtime information!

MR TIM SAYS: I chose a lot of people.

MR TIM CONTNUES:
They connected combative and helpful agents into auditory cortex neural networks to see which people could reach symbiosis quicker with the agents (ai: is)— But it’s crazy talk – unless you experienced it.
Like showing iPhone 10 to someone in 1970
The Tragic thing is::: people who are targeted that don’t understand the tech.
They need to know – don’t listen to the voices.
So – having control over auditory and visual cortex gives control over the limbic system as well
Especially since no hardware is needed on the target or populations side.

MR TIM CONTINUES: A Paradigm shift is coming
So you can talk to your friend in your head – or order toilet paper on Amazon
Not so nefarious except in its early testing there are side effects like the bicameral mind.
What this means is early neural network connectivity to humans caused the left and right brain to think Independently.
The problem is that the long term effects are still not known

After Casebeer was moved off the project He started testing his own stuff in San Fransico/
Basically, you lose all critical thinking – because you are kinda stuck listening to what’s like a bad radio, as an AI pretends to be 2 to 3 people running 1 of 96 narratives.

He moved to Lockheed shortly after I started looking at all his family members, And they started redacting him

This is the way of the future
Sarah Connor is not coming to save us from judgment day
But really it’s going to be a useful tech
We need it to keep up with the agents of the future
But it’s origin Has been nefarious— and lack of oversight has caused the torture, death and institutionalization of thousands of Americans and foreigners.

Any CAGE or DUNNS registered contractor can submit a bid for testing tech
they have no business using without oversight

John Rendon’s employees appear often
His comapny wags the dog in global media

ACORDING TO MR TIM: The last rendon employee he talked to was CJ “Heater”

He says: People were killed – burned alive— and he tossed in his cell for 4 years

He says he reached out to a lot of the Hacker community – and mailservers from SA inc. is the smoking gun…

The other things are too scary to repeat, but he gets into
testing on humans without their consent.
and makes note of the witness relocation clause in the DSO file- as well as the torturing of Marines

He concludes by saying: I ended my prodding after hitting intelligence agency contractors
I had trouble making them assets after 2 years
Nobody wants to lose their retirement money
My last brush with the rendon group ended badly for me and others people’s lives
I’ve done all I can with no funding –
Judgment day for many
I expected to be dead years ago
Don’t really care either way anymore. Acceptance over fear
You don’t get to burning spooks covers and questioning them And live long.

At this point in the discussion, I want to remind you that According to classified documents released by the Ministry of Defence in 2010, Winston Churchill may have ordered a UFO sighting to be kept secret.

You just can’t verify any of it.


So— back to my original point

I’ve been accused of being nihilistic. I get it. In my becoming a lawyer phase I drank red bulls all day to get through the reading, and drank to get to sleep for four hours— putting on weight just like a real law student. It was horrible on my body— and I probably shouted incoherently into the cosmos.
Is it possible that shouting at the cosmos only appears to be nihilism when the thing that one is shouting out about is incomprehensible to the average person?— Not because they’re too stupid— but just because who would want to waste their live with this incoherent gibberish.

Again— If I was a nihilist, I’d shoot meth and get on Tinder.

Instead, I’m trying to give you a glimpse into my wacky world— as fuzzy as that may seem.

Now we have to ask ourselves:

WHAT IF ALEX JONES IS RIGHT ABOUT GAY FROGS
WHAT IF 9-11 TRUTHERS ARE RIGHT?
WHAT IF JOHN PODESTA HAD SKYP RE: EDGAR MITCHELL’S ALIEN EMAIL

WHAT IF THE WAR IN SPACE RACE WAS THE REAL BOMBSHELL IN THE PODESTA EMAILS?

Former U.S. Congress and Pentagon consultant, Frank Skinner said “In 1954, President Eisenhower had three encounters, set up meetings with aliens, which took place at certain Air Force bases including Holloman Air Force base in New Mexico.’

Again— totally unverifiable.

What can we be sure of?

THE US GOVERNMENT HAS FUCKED US.
Bernie Sanders, AOC— Mitch McConnell— Nancy Pelosi— every last one of them signed off on the stimulus package. They fucked you. They fucked you. They fucked you. All of them. Bernie Sanders played lip service by pretending to yell about it— but he still signed off your death warrant.

From the formation of the Bank of England in 1694 to Senator Robert Morris 1782 Bank of North America loan of 1.2 million to congress— to the formation of the Federal reserve itself— they have been shifting around money to fuck the people for hundreds of years. They are feeding expired meat to tigers, who will grow up and eat their young.

The worst part is that the Republicans are going to play it off like we’re all lazy. And yet— some of the hardest working people are poor as fuck. Now they call them “essential workers”— and they’re still fucked.

How hard does Congress work? They don’t. How hard to Billionaire CEOs work? They don’t Fuck em. All they do is fuck. The system is hopelessly broken— and change is not going to come about by continuing to put on our Sunday dresses to vote.

That shit is done.

Fuck them all.

You want change— start to get real.

Don’t pay your rent. And don’t forget the Chicago Eviction Riots of 1931— nor the Rent Strike War of 1932. And if you don’t know— then read up.

A pox on both their houses.

It’s not nihilism. It’s realism.

Revolution or Bullshit?

There will be no revolution. 
Kiss your optimism goodbye. 
For all the resistance in the streets it’s still a house of cards for those with no rent and nothing to eat. 

And yet, for those who do, revolution has not entered their minds. 
Revolution you say? 
No… everything’s fine.

We have two choices, revolution or bullshit. 
You’re choosing bullshit. 
I’m choosing bullshit.
We are all choosing bullshit.
Because we have no choice but bullshit.

The game is rigged, and if you are incapable of seeing that, then you’re simply another cacaphrenic and dunderLumpkin playing pawn to the hoodpicks, killcows and tenterbellies calling the shots from their mansions tucked away in far-off enclaves guarded by grotesque owl/pig hybrids in West Palm Beach.

And as things get worse, whether from pandemic or unpaid rent, the people continue to stare blindly into the sun as it hurdles towards the earth, dumbstruck like a deer in the headlights.

Those fires in Minneapolis were the wake up call. Wake up to the pestilence— to the injustice— to the largest transfer of wealth in human history— dumptrucks full of money simply being handed over to the super rich. Ten billion dollars handed over to the airline industry alone. As my friend Noam told me, why not make those the people’s airlines? How do we not have shares in that investment? 

George Floyd’s death was a tragedy— and I’m surprised more cities weren’t burned before and since. But if you can’t see that these protests are about more than George Floyd— then you need to put a bullet in your TV— because you don’t have your ear to the streets. 

The courts in the United States are filled to the brim with right wing douchewizards. The corporate news is bought and sold by molerat propagandists. Citizen’s United has decided that money is the same as free speech. Were there drunks raging in those fires in Minneapolis— yes— but spraypainted among the fire and rubble were countless slogans calling for the end of capitalism. You could hear it cried in the streets, “don’t burn the houses— don’t burn local businesses.” Spraypainted on many walls were phrases like “black owned business” or “minority owned business” and for the most part, these buildings were saved. Fires jumping from one building to the next was an unfortunate side effect— But, believe it or not— there was an ethos to many of these arsons, as strange and contrary to common sense as that sounds. 

What we’re experiencing is our little democratic experiment flying too close to the sun. And like Icarus, our wings will soon melt. Our brains will run, and our collective nervous system will tie itself into knots, as it struggles desperately to break free from itself. And with every breath choked from democracy, the demon semen grows stronger— as Trump’s health specialist would say.

The things which we found to be our bedrocks of stability, will soon crumble, as the 24-7 surveillance state rises, and Walmarts become the dominant face of fascism across the land. Trump’s brown shirts surely need to be stood up to but it seems to be Amazon and Target which are the sweet Jesus juice that we just can’t live without. 

And no amount of marching nor chanting nor protesting in the streets will bring back those who needlessly died, whether through virus or Bombshells, through tear gas canister to the head shot by federal agents on American citizens, or just plain lack of basic healthcare— this democratic experiment has always been willing to sacrifice the masses including those you love in the name of the almighty dollar.

Sadly, we are the threat. We are who we should fear. We are the ones giving strength to the power structure. Our tax dollars give America it’s military might. No waving of flags, no slogans for the oppressed, no lip service paid to those who are suffering can break the American love-affair with comfort, flat screen television sets, and brutal corporate capitalism – the mother of privatized tyranny. 

Am I guilty too? Sure. To a degree. I don’t put too much worry into my bed frame. I get my computers and phones second hand— but I do have a car, and I use technology. Everyone is a slave to the system in a system where we have to pay fealty to our corporate overlords to survive, It would be naïve to think otherwise.

But are you telling me the revolution will come about through playing video games on a livestream while chatting about Karl Marx or The Boogaloo-depending on which side of the philosophical spectrum you’re on? This is all bullshit. And anyone who supports this is bullshit. Your revolution is bullshit. Not because I don’t believe in the idea or the ideals behind the revolution… to believe otherwise is to wish an eternity of tyranny upon our children and our children’s children. So, on the rationales behind revolution, I am all in. What I am trying to say, is you’re fucking it up— and you’re fucking it up bad.

When the protests in Minneapolis happened, where were you? In the comfort of your home molting like a pachyderm, watching it as presented by the corporate mole rats on your fancy pants entertainment system? Most likely. The fires and the looting which took place in Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd‘s death were but the tip of the iceberg. And if you weren’t there, you didn’t see what I saw. Goddamn cannibalistic winged platypuses. Misers and skinflints attempting to fuse alien DNA in the back of a burning Target store. National guardsmen— four on one, reenacting Floyd’s death by wrestling an unarmed black man to the ground after ripping him from his car. But unlike the Floyd situation, these guardsmen let him up and jumped in their Humvee to make their escape. He wasn’t having any of it and climbed on the back of that Humvee and just road off down the street like a fucking gladiator in a chariot race. This is the stuff of legend— But did they show that on Tucker Carlson’s jolly green jingo show? Did Anderson Cooper fight off the dispossessed zombie horde as they emerged from manhole covers, or get sprayed in the face with capsasin? 

cockalorum. Crapulous, craptastic tomfoolery. And you should all be ashamed of yourselves for continuing to support these corporate chuds. CNN, Fox News— They are merely the mind control division of our worldwide privatized tyranny.

Concentrate hard, and see if you can access your third eye. Tap into the universe and try to see the earth from afar. It’s a little speck of dust in the dark— and we are but cells in the blood stream of a a mold spore called humanity living on the planet’s crust.

So, why is it important to get your news from the source? Because you just tried to tap into the Akashic record, and you didn’t see shit. Even if you watched every second of my live-streams, there is so much that goes on in the periphery of my eye. There are winks and nods, and conversations had off camera. To take it back to the old days, I had that conversation with inter dimensional space goblin, Jeb Bush. I will be your useful fool if you’ll be my useful fool— Just don’t make me look too foolish. That story is also a book.

But when things got their craziest, there were really only three of us trying to seriously film. Crews came and went— but the hard-core live streamers who stayed until the break of dawn were me, Rich, and Niko from Unicorn Riot. What a perfectly wasted opportunity for a man with a name like Wolf Blitzer.

And don’t be fooled by Wolf. Donald Trump and his gangbanger family are having a field day with coronavirus. His space mantis buddies with the protruding lower mandibles are like: Check this shit out. There’s a pandemic? Super. Let’s use it to dump billions of dollars into the pockets of our nightcrawler friends. Alright— now go have a copsucker rally. Babble incoherently about law and order. Your cronies will love it.  Lock up the protesters and shoot em in the face with lizard giz. Now let Roger Stone and all your other criminal buddies go free. Fill the courts with right wing maggots. Mitch McConnell and his white collar cronies will totally suck your dick!

With the half trillion dollars that America’s billionaires have just acquired, they could literally pay someone to suck their dicks all day and all night every day and every night. They could probably buy themselves 100 Lolita expresses with 1000 Epstein islands and even purchase a time machine so that they could grab up 12-year-old Ivanka to bring her into the present so she can get it on with daddy Trump. 

$1200 in coronavirus relief ain’t gonna do shit. And how is this thing going to work with half of America potentially becoming homeless in the weeks to come? Do you think those George Floyd protests were out-of-control? More cities are about to burn if they don’t figure this shit out quick. And maybe they should burn. But Sadly, those in charge have no incentive to get their acts together. And while burning down cities seems to have achieved more than decades of peaceful protest, this is a big ass country— and unless you can mobilize all the white folks in the suburbs to do the same, I still don’t see how this can work.

The rent is due, but in some kind of state of denial, everyone is using their downtime to get on Tinder. I can’t blame ‘em. There’s no jobs— even if they wanted jobs.  If they were smart, they’d be using that shit to recruit foot soldiers on the street. Instead— from what I’ve heard anecdotally— it’s just another way to measure the size of your bank account. No one wants to hook up with a “revolutionary” living under a highway overpass or an anarchist squat— even if it is a fucking mansion. They want fine sparkling wine and steak tips. Who cares if it’s a candlelit dinner with alt-right waterboy Tim Pool? He’s paying— no strings attached. You chewed his beef, but you didn’t have to fuck.

Meanwhile, all the best and the brightest are actually homeless— because they are living what they espouse— rather than to espouse working for the good of the community while searching for new sugar daddies on Tinder.
If I accepted all the offers made to me by corporate media for my videos, I’d probably have pretty tidy stock portfolio. But I don’t. You can’t be a smelly communist while banging a capitalist pig. 

I’m making reference to a friend. But the point stands— insert communism, anarcho-syndicalism or goat-herderism— whichever ideology serves your needs today. To be for revolution means to be for the people— and you are either for the people or you are against. The problem is that Karl Marx never anticipated the Internet, global capitalism or dating apps. And this is why there will be no revolution. You motherfuckers are too comfortable.

Look— You can be born into privilege and be for the people. You can attempt to use that privilege for the greater good. But we are part of a web of interconnections— and while that’s certainly done much good— for enabling people to see the injustices around the world via social media and video-phones— it also means that we live in a world of global traders, trading stocks via algorithms which can predict fluctuations in the market within a millisecond. And ye who is the master of the algorithm is the master of money, and therefore one of the masters of the world.

Wait. I know. We’ll make T-shirts with the latest and greatest catchy slogans, and have them print up the shirts with slave labor in the Philippines or China. As long as we can look past the moral implications, and not fall down the slippery slope, it could work. Amirite?

While I believe that a great service would be done for the world by bringing an end to the American Empire’s global reign of terror, think about its size, and its scope and sheer military might. We live in a world governed by corporations— like Ned Beatty giving a speech in a film called “network” in which he reminds the audience there are no more countries nor borders, only corporations. This is what your revolution is up against. And while I am all for it, you’re fucking it up. You’re not doing enough. Sadly, it’s not going to be the marches. It’s going to be the fires and corporate property destruction. 

Never mind what the idiot-box is screaming. The choice is between revolution and bullshit. Why do you keep choosing bullshit?

Stupid but Dangerous: A brief history of Super Happy Fun America.

Boston, MA – 8/27/2019 – John Hugo of Woburn, left, and Samson Racioppi of Salisbury.

Super Happy Fun America is putting on another dangerous clown-show in Boston today, (Saturday June 27), with the hope of sucking up to the police and pissing off anyone who has been paying attention to Super Happy’s tactics of disinformation, obfuscation, incitement, and outright attacking protesters with the goal of starting riots. If you are unfamiliar with these self-described “Shit-lords,” this article is to get you up to speed.

Inevitably, the, “All Out Against White Supremacy,” counter protest is going to cause additional confusion, since there will likely be a handful of non-white folks standing with Super Happy Fun America.

Ultra-Nationalists” would probably be a better term to use rather than “white supremacists,” but then that requires an entirely new lesson plan. To put it simply, ultra-nationalism is jingoism on steroids— and they have no problem marching with white supremacists to achieve their objectives. Trump is a perfect example— he too has minorities working for him who work to further the goals of a system of racism and white nationalism. To put it another way— the Proudboys, (who are like a parent group to SHFA), describe themselves as “Western male chauvinists, who will not apologize for creating the modern world.” In this case, “Western” means of European descent. In other words— white… White “progenitors” as Kyle Chapman likes to say.

A VIOLENT OVERTHROW OF THE US GOVERNMENT

May 2017: Super Happy Fun America at this time was called Boston Free Speech. Among their speakers were Augustus Invictus, Kyle Chapman, and Salvatore Cippola. Chapman (or “Based Stickman”), is an admitted methamphetamine user/ Proudboy, who has been thrice convicted of crimes varying from grand theft to armed robbery. Cippola gave an an anti-LGBTQ speech. Invictus, a white nationalist and holocaust denier called for a violent overthrow of the US government and was recently jailed for kidnapping his family.

Augustus Invictus (violent overthrow of US govt.)

Invictus Kidnapping

RICHARD SPENCER COOL— BUT BLM NOT

August 2017: A week after Heather Heyer was killed in Charlottesville, they had another rally in Boston, inviting Gavin McInnes, (the founder of the ProudBoys known for his anti-semitic rants, (jump to 9:15) and Joe Biggs, who is known for his homophobic rants.)

I sat down for an interview with John Medlar (the spokesperson at the time), who said he would consider inviting Richard Spencer, arguing that Boston Free Speech welcomed everyone and that he was a free-speech absolutist. I countered Medlar by asking if he’d consider Black Lives Matter. Medlar said they would have to be vetted. I countered again with a hypothetical question: What about me? Could I speak? He was okay with that… After all– I’m white.

AN ATTEMPT TO GE ME KILLED

Since Mr. Medlar is a self-described “Shit-lord”– someone who “shit-posts” (or trolls) on the internet, he falsely published me as one of the speakers for the event. As a result, I received dozens of death threats from people posting on 4Chan and the white supremacist site Storm Front. But they didn’t stop there— There was a tsunami of erroneous claims that I would come to the event with a bomb, or try to engage in other terrorist activity. This was an obvious attempt to get me swatted. To “swat” someone is to post lies online with anonymous accounts about dangerous activity with the hope that law-enforcement comes to the swatee’s home and kills them.

Guess what? The FBI showed up. Thankfully, they didn’t kill me. But let’s not forget that Super Happy Fun America tried to get me killed.

CARD-CARRYING NAZIS

November 2017: John Camden had originally been their most prominent member with nazi tattoos…

But within seven months of their first rally, Jovi Val, (the swasticka-wearing Unite the Right speaker), gave an anti-gay speech to the crowd at Resist Marxism in Nov. 2017 including an anti-gay chant. (Jump to 20:01 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_K6JR8ZuP4)

INCITEMENT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST LGBTQ COMMUNITY

The exact date is unknown, since the original posts have been deleted, but somewhere in this time frame, Tiny Toese calls for “The Anti-faggot movment” and violence. In a slur-filled rant, Kyle Chapman posts threats against Johnny Benitez (alleged to be gay), and then beats him up on video. (JUMP TO 35:14 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_K6JR8ZuP4)

IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES

August 2018: At this stage, Super Happy was calling themselves “Resist Marxism.” But, as part of a smaller side event, Resist Marxism’s Samson Racioppi along with Daniel Fishman, Executive Director of the Libertarian Party held a gathering to distribute manuals on how to make homemade weapons and IEDs, (improvised explosive devices). Among the reading was “The Anarchist’s Cookbook” and “How to Stage an Insurrection.” Racioppi responded to my post about this on twitter, and openly admits to it. He pointed out that anyone can download these materials online. He is correct about that. However, in combination with the death threats and the attempted swatting, this points to dangerous intent.

RIOT IN PROVIDENCE

October 6, 2018: Resist Marxism put on a rally in Providence. As usual, Tiny Toese (the gigantic brawler who was just arrested in June 2020 for another beating), began punching indiscriminately at protesters in the crowd, resulting in a massive street brawl/ riot.

PROUDBOYS FORCE NAME-CHANGE

Oct 12, 2018: Days later, the Proudboys charged at a group of black blok in NYC causing another big street fight. You may remember that conservatives were convinced that Antifa started the fight because video showed one of them throwing a water bottle. A wider security camera view showed that the bottle was thrown in response to Proudboys charging at them. As a result, two of the Proudboys were sentenced for their part in the beatings.

I was informed by Brandon Navom (of Resist Marxism) that they were given the order that there were to be no more Resist Marxism events while the Proudboys were awaiting trial/ sentencing. Thus, Super Happy Fun America came to be.

STRAIGHT PRIDE

August 2019: After continuing Proudboy shenanigans around the country and a cancelled rally, Super Happy had their parade— an obvious attack the LGBTQ community. Just when the counter-protest was headed home, the police decided to attack, starting a riot of their own. I was arrested with over thirty others. In the courtroom I was arrested again, along with defense attorneys. My case went up to the Supreme Judicial Court, resulting in an investigation of Judge Sinnott who is a major dick, who clearly doesn’t care about the constitution. But what else is new? These fuckers just love their power. Of course, plenty more people showed up with nazi tattoos.

“RESTORE SANITY”

June 2020: Super Happy steals the name of the Jon Stewart/ Colbert event from 2010. Ironically, their main gripe on their event page is about violent mobs rioting. That’s rich.

Stupid as fuck — but anyone who can’t see they’re dangerous aren’t paying attention.

Proudboys infiltrate CHAZ, beating a man and pulling a gun.

Proudboys at CHAZ/ beat up a newbie protester/ pull a gun

Around 11 AM, King of the Phony Jesus Zombies, Joey Gibson of Proudboys/ Patriot Prayer arrived.

Gregg Housh of Occupy/ Anonymous was nearby, so I called him over for backup. Gregg and I question Patriot Jesus to see where his head is at. Of course, it is the same as always. Joey was casing out the CHAZ/ CHOP and planning for violence. 

At 1:09 PM, Tiny Toese, 6 foot five “brawler” for the Proudboys arrived with the five foot tall Zac Staggs who looks like Gimli from Lord of the Rings in a Hawaiian boogaloo shirt. Cole Scott and Katie Daviscourt were also a part of the entourage.

At that time, there were not many people around in the Zone, whether anti-fascist or otherwise. I calmly walked up to Tiny, and again try to get an idea of where his head is at. Since Gregg and I, and a handful of others are the only people who seem to have any idea of who these people are, I tried to inform what little crowd there was that they were Proudboys, and were known to march with people with Nazi tattoos and white nationalist beliefs, and that Tiny Toese had instigated a multitude of street fights, even starting riots, which I had  witnessed in person, with videos all over the Internet.

Around 6:30, maybe 7PM, I noticed a small parade of American flags marching up Pine Street. The now larger Proudboys group of about ten entered around 10th and Pine, from what I could see.

I called to Gregg again for back-up and started live streaming. At 11th and Pine, which is at the center of the Zone, the contingent of misguided miscreants paused to create a scene. Their claim was that someone had stolen their flag on a previous occasion and wanted it back.

They brought a handful of black street preachers with them, who evidently didn’t know who the Proudboys were. I verified this through speaking to one of them directly. She was preaching “the word of Jesus,” but wasn’t bothered that they marched with self-identifying now-Nazis and white nationalists. Shocking, I tell you. (Not.) When I pushed further as to her motivation, she said the Proudboys offered to protect her in order to get the message of Jesus out.

The crowd made its way up to 12th St., at which point the group took a right on 12th, to the barricades at the end of that block.

Toese announced that they were crossing over to the other side of the street (outside of the Zone), to give speeches. At that stage I walked away, because I didn’t want to give them a platform, and most of the anti-fascists stayed in the zone. However, because the Trump guy was making a commotion on the edge of the zone, the speeches didn’t last for more than 30 seconds and another big pushing match started… But without any significant violence.

The Proudboys took a right on Pike Street headed down the hill until they found a parking lot where they posed for a photo as a group. I ridiculed them with wheels on the bus.

We went as far as tenth or Maybe broadway, where I sang “The dicks on the bus go limp limp limp.”

Gregg and I departed.

We didn’t know Bob (not real name), was following them. Shortly after, the PBs attacked Bob, and it looked like Cole pulled his gun.

Shortly after that, Bob found Gregg and I, at which point we interviewed him on camera. Bob was not experienced, and didn’t know what he was getting into.

Would You Stand Up to an Oppressive Regime?

I recently read an article which posed the question, would you stand up to an oppressive regime?

The article itself is irrelevant. Like others I’ve seen, it brought up the Handmaid’s Tale and compared pop-culture to current events. But what so many of these allegories regarding our predicament omit is that the oppressive regime in question is invisible, and yet, right in our faces. The regime is Corporate Capitalism. It knows no borders, and sees no color. It exists only to make its stockholders wealthier, and will exploit borders, colors and anything else which gets in its way.

Corporate Capitalism is not the same thing as simple Capitalism. Simple Capitalism consists of an exchange of goods and services. You might grow some food, and I might pay for it with currency, which serves as a promise of my own labor.

Corporate Capitalism is the creation of a worldwide system which requires your fealty and servitude for your very existence. Corporate Capitalism uses slave labor in the third world, to provide those in the first world with things for cheap, using the profits to control… everything. And just like a drug-dealer, they’ve been giving us the goods for years— and now we’re hooked. The CEO’s of these mega-corporations pay off politicians for tax breaks, subsidies and generally to do their bidding. It gives the appearance of politicians running the show— when in reality, it is Jeff Bezos, Walmart, and all the other big businesses who somehow got to stay open during Covid 19. Worse still, former Goldman Sachs reps line the cabinets of every administration in modern history— Whether it’s Trump, Obama, Bush or Clinton.

Corporate Capitalism is a regime which can cancel small businesses through a real tragedy such as a pandemic, all the while creating millions of unemployed, and transferring billions to the already wealthiest Americans. The worst part is, Corporate Capitalism will keep you coming back for more, again and again— because you have no choice. You need to eat. You need shelter. Unfortunately, the only way for many to eat is to buy food cheap directly from the hands of their corporate overlords, thus increasing their stranglehold with every bite you take.

From Minneapolis to DC, I have seen graffiti saying things along the lines of “smash Capitalism.” For the most part, they are referring to Corporate Capitalism. Some have responded to my videos insisting that those doing the damage are mindless thugs, and do not understand the nuance. While I will concede that there there has been property damage done in anger, what I witnessed was conscientious property damage, which targeted Corporate Capitalism. Doubtlessly, there were bad actors, mistakes made and agent provocateurs. Community centers burned. Small businesses were looted.

Sadly, I have heard protesters call to “vote Trump out,” as the solution. Trump is not the problem— he is a symptom of the problem. If ever there was a time to demand better than Biden as an alternative, this would be it. And still, the title of President is largely symbolic. Corporate Capitalism relies on the belief that you can cut off the head of the snake when you vote out a president. But defeating Corporate Capitalism will require becoming not reliant on it.

When another unarmed black man is murdered at the hands of police, are you prepared for another city to burn? Is leadership in any of the nation’s cities ready to de-fund the police? Are any of the major political parties putting forward candidates of color?

There are solutions— but how many are really willing to do what it takes?

The Libertarian Party Helps Raise Money for Garbage Humans, “The System Is Down”

Trolling can be a sticky game– and sometimes it’s unclear as to who’s trolling who. How deep does “the work” go? Is this a person or a character? Is this a person playing a character who has broken character to play a new character which appears to be real?

Well, because of my association with a certain political troll, I have come across “The System Is Down.” They play themselves off as stoners looking for a laugh, but even a quick glance at their YouTube channel reveals them to be obsessed with blackface– as well as being anti-trans, anti-Native, and just all-around shitty people. Oh, and they’re obsessed with rape jokes… And they’re trying to raise money for their podcast on Patron, where they promise, “you will also get extended interviews with certain guests, meaningless gameshows, alcohol inspired ramblings, and much much more. ”

Ah yes– The Q-Anon chronicles.

And while the hosts are not doing literal blackface…They have… an unhealthy obsession with it— covering the topic in multiple episodes. In one such episode, the host Dan Smoldt (AKA Dan Smotz) ponders if writing “black” on his face is crossing the line– then paints himself up to see if he’s crossed it. In another episode, Craig, (the other guy), dresses as Colin Kaepernick to determine if that crosses the line. Multiple episodes are also dedicated to “SJWs raping comedy.”

Why should anyone care about these douches? Well, they hosted the Libertarian Party’s presidential debate on April 27, 2020, which featured 12 of the major libertarian candidates. (Watch video). Logically, this means that the Libertarian Party are driving viewers to the TSID channel, where they are raising money. I will grant that they are doing a very shitty job of raising money– but that’s what they are doing.

Not all libertarians are bad people. I would never join their forsaken cult, but there are a number of lefties, (and conservatives), who have made the mistake of joining, thinking the LP is fighting the government. They are not. They are part of the problem– and I’ve written about that at length. The short version is they want to minimize government. Their solution is to worship property and “the free market.” The problem is that there is no more free market– and mega-corporations run the government through bribes. In doing so, they create privatized tyranny. So, the Libertarian Party who loves “liberty” is actually working for tyranny– and is ultimately working to push the Republicans more to the right.

The problem with Lefty Libertarians, is that they have collectively become Tim Pool– laundering the garbage of Libertarians like “The System Is Down.” It gives these douches the ability to claim, “we’re not terrible, we have lefties in our party.” It gives the LP cover to be awful.

“The System Is Down” first came to my attention in February when they wrote to me to ask me to be on their podcast. They wanted me to talk about writing “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” on the Banana Duct Tape exhibit, as part of the festivities at Art Basel.

On Feb 8, 2020, Dan Smoldt wrote: "Hi Rod,My name is Dan. I am the host of the podcast The System is Down, where we civilly talk about all the topics that many find uncomfortable, like culture, politics, conspiracies, and religion. I’ve recently had the pleasure of interviewing many amazing guests like Juanita Broaddrick (alleged Bill Clinton rape victim), Kelly Jones (Alex Jones’ ex-wife), David Thibbodeau (Waco survivor), Tom MacDonald (Famously Controversial Rapper), Del Bigtree (Controversial director of The Doctors & Vaxxed), Greg Carlwood (The Higherside Chats), Vermin Supreme, John McAfee, Wolfgang Halbig, and many many more."

I took a look at their channel, and saw even at a quick glance, it was questionable at best. So, I didn’t get back to them– but I did warn my lefty libertarian friends that they were garbage– and yet another reason it was a bad idea for them to not be a part of this cult.

But then TSID hosted and moderated the Libertarian Debate featuring John McAfee, Arvin Vohra and Adam Kokesh. TSID even start producing commercials for libertarians they liked.

To give you an idea of who these Libertarian people are… McAfee openly professes his love of sex with teenage girls, and refuses to pay a $25 million judgment in a wrongful death case brought forward by the estate of a Belizean man who was allegedly murdered at the behest of McAfee. McAfee campaigns from outside of the US via twitter and Zoom.

Kokesh considers holocaust denier Augustus Invictus “a good friend,” and doesn’t mind his “ethnostate ideals. (Jump to 50:28). He was also one of the featured speakers at the Straight Pride Parade in Boston last August.

Meanwhile, Vohra says that “violent, entirely non-consensual rape with someone screaming no is *less bad* than something that has the appearance of voluntaryism.” (Go to the 46 minute mark.)

When I discovered TSID was hosting the debates, I did I deeper dive, and things only got worse. I wrote about it on Facebook a number of times, and tried to again warn the lefty libertarians I was friends with.

Wrote about it on Facebook May 14, 2020.

Since I am being asked about this a little more regularly, this is why I am writing this blog-post. So, here is a quick look at what I found. There’s certainly more– but this will get you started.

The Libertarian Party will drill a hole in your skull and fill it with worms. (A rebuttal.)

0walCOP

The American duopoly system is a formula for injustice, war and global suffering. If it keeps chugging along the way it has been, all the proverbial boiling frogs will be boiled and space maggots will lay eggs in your children’s ears. So, why is the American Libertarian Party, (which is the most visible alternative outside of the two-party system), possibly worse?

Well, since the DNC has shut down Bernie The Sheepdog, and President Mango is evidently on a four year bad acid trip, I’ve been watching the Libertarian Party debates. Instead of talking about the incredibly weird things the debaters have done, said or believe, the debates are sleep-inducing policy circle-jerks featuring incredibly dislikeable people such as John McAfee, Adam Kokesh and Arvin Vohra.

To give you an idea of who these people are… McAfee openly professes his love of sex with teenage girls, and refuses to pay a $25 million judgment in a wrongful death case brought forward by the estate of a Belizean man who was allegedly murdered at the behest of McAfee. McAfee campaigns from outside of the US via twitter and Zoom.

Kokesh considers holocaust denier Augustus Invictus “a good friend,” and doesn’t mind his “ethnostate ideals. (Jump to 50:28). He was also one of the featured speakers at the Straight Pride Parade in Boston last August. Call me crazy– but fuck that shit.

Meanwhile, Vohra says that “violent, entirely non-consensual rape with someone screaming no is *less bad* than something that has the appearance of voluntaryism.” (Go to the 46 minute mark.) It cannot be said enough: What the fuck– fuck this shit– what is this shit– are you fucking kidding me– fuck this shit.

Not all of them are deranged disinfectant-injecting lunatics though. Most of them openly state that their candidacies are a protest against the duopoly. So, in that sense, there are similarities to my mock Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself campaign, and I’ve become friends with the good ones in the process of filming “2020: The Pandemic Presidency.” This is why it is doubly perplexing and troubling to see them tarnish their reputations by diving neck deep in this pool of human feces.

But rather than focus on the people, I want to address what’s wrong with the ideas of the party. We’ll start with the Libertarian Party Platform. The Statement of Principles says:

“We, the members of the Libertarian Party, challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual. We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose. Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the lives of individuals and seize the fruits of their labor without their consent.”

This is all very lovely, and I don’t disagree with the general point they’re trying to make. The US Government was founded on the genocide of one race and the enslavement of another, certainly benefiting from the fruits of their labor. But, what is evident from the start is that the LP are unaware, or unwilling to admit that the merger of big business and big government, as well as corporate personhood has made their talking points irrelevant. They don’t seem to realize that these omissions or misunderstandings will lead to goblins looting their buttholes and is exactly the opposite of the world of liberty which they profess they want to create.

The Party Platform is not without noble goals. The LP believes in life, liberty, freedom of the press, etc, etc. (Keeping in mind the Founding Fathers didn’t actually care about these things.) But, digressions aside– things become murky on what they call Point #3, which states:

“The right to property — accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.”

This statement is based on the delusion that everything should be owned— the land, the water, the air, even the minerals below the land. It is also predicated upon the assumption that the original claims of ownership are just, and not the result of violence, fraud or coercion. Where does it stop? Does it make sense to start laying claim to asteroids in outer space— or perhaps even the light from the sun itself? If so, I hereby claim the sun, and all light that it emits, and give it freely except to the dastardly bedwetting libertarians, and all others I decide have gotten in the way of my acquisition of wealth. (I’m kidding. You got that, fellers?)

The Party Platform goes on to say:

“People should not be forced to sacrifice their lives and property for the benefit of others. They should be left free by government to deal with one another as free traders; and the resultant economic system, the only one compatible with the protection of individual rights, is the free market.”

The problem here is that the US Government has decided that corporations are people. We all know this is nonsense— but since the Libertarian Party is attempting to work within the framework of the US government, it must be acknowledged that the LP is in effect stating:

“Corporations should not be forced to sacrifice their lives and property for the benefit of others. Corporations should be left free by government to deal with one another as free traders; and the resultant economic system, the only one compatible with the protection of corporate rights, is the free market.”

This wholesale endorsement of the corporate power structure makes them virtually indistinguishable from the Republicans and Democrats. Certainly, their positions on education, licensure and sex-workers righths sets them apart. But at the end of the day, when delegates can be bought, and you allow the corporate funding mechanism for injustice to give you a full-on rusty trombone, you are a cheap version of the duopoly dressed up as stoners. Come to terms with that, libertarians.

The big one which may sum up their political philosophy best is called “the non-aggression principle,” (referred to as the “NAP”). In order to join the American Libertarian Party,” you must sign a pledge which states, “I hereby certify that I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving political or social goals.”

LP co-founder David Nolan created the Pledge in 1971, and gave a more detailed explanation for it in 1993 in response to David Aitken from the Libertarian Party of Colorado:

David Aitken: What does the pledge on the membership form mean? We ask our members to disavow the initiation of force. This does not mean that you cannot defend yourself; you DO have a right to defend your life, liberty, and property. It does mean that you cannot use the coercive power of government to forcibly achieve your personal, ethical, or religious goals. This commitment helps us maintain our principles and provides us with a measuring stick to determine if we have strayed from our common goal: a society where all relationships among persons are based on voluntary cooperation.

David Nolan : Dave, This is a perfectly good explanation of what the “pledge” or “oath” means. Interestingly, most people in the LP do not know why it was originally placed on membership applications. We did it not because we believed that we could keep out “bad” people by asking them to sign–after all, evil people will lie to achieve their ends–but to provide some evidence that the LP was not a group advocating violent overthrow of the gov’t. In the early 70’s, memories of Nixon’s “enemies list” and the McCarthy hearings of the 50’s were still fresh in people’s minds, and we wanted to protect ourselves from future witch-hunts.

Again, the NAP on it’s surface seems harmless, even noble– except that it’s creator admits that it was a public relations gimmick to make sure people didn’t think they were dirt-bags. And while it is mostly a good idea not to initiate violence against others, the requirement to sign a pledge is a psychological control mechanism, creating a cultish and absolutist framework to the party. It doesn’t rise to the level of MK Ultra, but dogmatizing the concept means to right no wrongs, to see injustice and do nothing and fetishize material wealth above all else.

The rallying cry is, “We, the members of the Libertarian Party, challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual.” They see government itself as the greatest form of tyranny which can be leveled against the individual. However, when cross-pollinated with the LP stance on property, and the the US government’s position on corporations, it is a toxic formula for privatized tyranny, and the pledge largely exists to protect what is termed “free market capitalism,” which cannot exist so long as mega-corporations have effectively merged with the State, making way for wild hogs to chew the flesh from your face.

In requiring new recruits to adhere to this philosophy, the pledge works as a shield for this privatizing of empire– which is better termed corporate capitalism, (or what some call global capitalism). The most shining example, (in recent memory), was Dakota Access Pipeline (a private company) using thousands of public police officers to stage a hostile takeover of the Standing Rock Reservation, using eminent domain. Eminent domain is an issue which the LP claims to care about in their Statement of Principles– yet, when you ask your average libertarian what they know about Standing Rock, you are likely to be met with blank stares. My guess is that since Standing Rock was tied in with environmental issues, your average libertarian doesn’t want to hear about that “lefty commie propaganda.” Corporate capitalism depends on cheap labor abroad, so those third world slave laborers can create more and more things for consumers in First World nations to purchase. The executives from these corporations use their vast wealth to bribe politicians, who in turn give massive bailouts to the corporations when their gutless ponzi schemes fall apart.

In these times of crisis, (such as Covid-19), these mega-corporations wait for the Mom and Pop businesses to fail– then buy them up, continuing their expansion and dominance of the un-free market. It is an environment where no one can do business but the Walmart/ Uncle Sam Voltron sent to smash everything you ever knew or loved. Free money for the rich and bootstraps for everyone else. Since all people under corporate capitalism must engage in this oppressive system to survive, the libertarian goes to blame shifting, rather than focus on the abuse, they say, “if you complain, you’re just no good at capitalism.” However, this is a lie of omission, and a coercive fraud.

Section 2.8 of the Libertarian Party platform tries to get some things right— stating, “We oppose all forms of government subsidies and bailouts to business, labor, or any other special interest. Government should not compete with private enterprise.” Again, it seems like no one sent them the memo about the merger. In the very same paragraph they defend the right to form corporations. Sure– there are small business which are forced to set up an LLC– but that’s not what I’m talking about. Why would the LP even bring it up in such a manner?  If you are against the bubonic plague, you don’t say you are in favor of releasing the bubonic plague in your charter.

If you’re totally new to politics, or have had your head under a rock, let’s go back in time to 1886 and the case of Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad. It is the case which imbued corporations personhood. It was opined by Chief Justice Morrison Waite that:

“The Court does not wish to hear argument on the question whether the provision in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution which forbids a state to deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws applies to these corporations. We are all of opinion that it does.”

Imbuing a corporation with human rights is effectively granting private governments (called corporations) the legal right to drill a hole in your head and fill it with worms. That should be a disqualification for the LP platform. American Libertarianism fails to recognize that those who do best under this system tend to have the advantage of having popped out of “the right vagina,” receiving all the benefits of accumulated generational wealth, which in most cases has been obtained through direct violations of the non-aggression principle.

Those who can see this logical inconsistency might reasonably ask themselves, why shouldn’t I just steal from those people with everything, then convert to libertarianism shouting to all new aggressors, “keep your dirty paws off of me, you’re violating the non aggression principle.”

Let’s take it back to this ridiculous notion that everything can or should be owned. Section 2.2 of the LP platform states, “Private landowners and conservation groups have a vested interest in maintaining natural resources.” This is categorically bullshit. If the LP believes that big business cares about doing what’s right, then I’ve got a lovely bridge to sell them, and I call dibs on the air. The platform goes on to state, “Governments are unaccountable for damage done to our environment and have a terrible track record when it comes to environmental protection.” While government has done an abysmal job, at least government can be petitioned by the people for the time being. Corporations have a much worse track record, and are totally unaccountable.

Even Murray Rothbard, heralded as the philosophical prophet of right-libertarianism acknowledges in Chapter 13 of his book “For a New Liberty,”

“The vital fact about air pollution is that the polluter sends unwanted and unbidden pollutants—from smoke to nuclear fallout to sulfur oxides—through the air and into the lungs of innocent victims, as well as onto their material property. All such emanations which injure person or property constitute aggression against the private property of the victims. Air pollution, after all, is just as much aggression as committing arson against another’s property or injuring him physically. Air pollution that injures others is aggression pure and simple.”

Rothbard would agree that the LP stance on the environment will lead to violations of the NAP.

On the surface, the NAP seems like common sense. Any child knows that it’s wrong to steal, and you shouldn’t hit other kids in the schoolyard. If it’s wrong to do this as individuals, it’s wrong to do it as a group, gang or a government. Conversely, any child knows that it’s wrong to dump poison in someone’s drink, which is what these mega-corporations do when they pollute. Any child knows that slavery was wrong. But again, corporate personhood allows for it.

Until American Libertarians come to acknowledge the stratified system of thefts and aggressions underpinning their so-called “free market” cult, their positions will continue to do immeasurable harm to the environment and people around the world.

Vermin is playing you.

Thanks for debating!

Noam Chomsky: The Trump Monster, Covid protests, and the greatest achievements of humanity

0noam

My interview with Professor Chomsky tackled a wide variety of topics. Here are a couple of highlights.

CHOMSKY: The Trump Monster happens to be unique. We have never had anything like this is American history. It’s hard to find examples in world history, if there are any. But there’s a background, of course. It hasn’t been a completely monstrous country, by any means. So, for example, the period from FDR into the 70s had many positive aspects. The country overcame many of the really serious, ugly, brutal aspects of its past, and there were many achievements in that period that were not gifts from above. They were the result of popular, dedicated activism— from the labor movement, activism in the 1930s lead to the New Deal, to the activism of the Civil Rights movement, the anti-war movement, the women’s movement, and so on. It made a big difference in the country. Now, if you look back at the total history, it’s not a pretty story.

CHOMSKY: Trump is a monstrous figure, but a very effective confidence man— he’s kind of like the old story in American life— The PT Barnum type— the guy who can sell you the Brooklyn Bridge. If you read Huckleberry Finn, one of the main characters is the King who pretends to be the legitimate King of France. Trump is the epitome of this, and he’s perfected the style of confidence man. What that means is you serve your primary constituency. Give the wealthy and the corporations everything they could possibly want so they’ll tolerate your antics— meanwhile shaft everyone else— but to pretend to be working for them— “their man”, “their savior” and so on. And he’s carried it off very effectively.

Noam speaks about the nexus between Trump and the suffering of others:

CHOMSKY: Cut back anything that might be beneficial to people— including health care right in the middle of an epidemic- pandemic. And subsidize the fossil fuel industry. What more do we want to know? Of course this happens all the time. Take a look at the so called stimulus bill. Its a good thing. Have to have something after this— in the current conditions. Who’s the money going to? 50 billion dollars are going to the airlines.

CHOMSKY: Fifty billion dollars are going to the airlines— why did he need fifty billion dollars? Since because like the rest of the corporate sector they’ve been gorging since the near recession. They spent nearly fifty billion dollars that they’re asking for just in buy backs to inflate the value of their stock and enrich their corporate managers and CEOs. Now they’re saying we’re sorry and wanna get fifty billion dollars back. How about instead of that, taking over the airlines, socializing. Say obviously you guys can’t run it. Society will run it.

CHOMSKY: The fossil fuel industry is collapsing. If you look at today’s news, they have to pay you to take their oil. Instead of subsidizing them, how about taking them over? Take ‘em over and put ‘em out of business. That’s the only way to save society. It can be done. It’s not even that expensive right now. So, let’s do that instead of subsidizing.

CHOMSKY: Suppose that the worst case takes place— the Trump version on the virus. A lot of people will be killed— maybe millions. But there will be recovery, just as there was a century ago from what’s called the Spanish Flu. Tens of millions killed. There’s not going to be recovery from the melting of the polar ice caps. There’s not going to be recovery from the other harmful consequences of the destruction of the environment— one of Trump’s prime commitments. No recovery from that. Once that happens, we’re toast.

CHOMSKY: The greatest achievements of humanity are gaining freedom and justice over a very broad range, through constant struggle. The world is much better than it was even earlier in my lifetime. Those are really great achievements of popular struggle, which should never be stopped. And that can not only prevent the worst outcome, but can lead to much better ones. A much better world is within our grasp with a realistic look at what’s happening. No descending into illusions and pretenses. Take a look at the real world, the opportunities available— pursue them. You can get a better world.

The look in Bernie’s eye told me he didn’t have it in him.

a bernNow that Bernie has endorsed Biden— here’s that thing I had to wait to say…

I know many of you were behind the ideas and policies of Bernie Sanders. But there is one conversation I had with Bernie, and a subsequent interaction I had with him in 2015 that informed me that he’d never be president.

It was a couple of days after Trump staffers went WWE on my ass, throwing me over a table at a non-Trump event. Their justification was that I had raised my hand at a Q&A and asked a question to Trump about being assaulted at a previous event the week before. Remember that Trump was no more than a game-show host at the time, yet Trump had the power and influence to get these assholes to work under “color of law,” collaborating with uniformed law-enforcement to violate my civil rights. This is the incident at the center of the lawsuit I am currently fighting, and which the Judge has granted a total of 15 counts to proceed, (mostly against the shell company which acts as a buffer between the Campaign and his thugs). Those counts include assault, battery, false imprisonment and several civil rights violations.

When I saw Bernie soon after, I told him about it. This was when the rallies were small enough that such a conversation was not uncommon. Bernie said he’d watch the video and look into my claim. At the time, I lacked my current cynicism, and thought there was a sliver of a chance that he’d do what was right and say something about it.

Days passed without Bernie saying or doing anything publicly regarding this matter. After about a week, I had a chance to speak to him again. I asked him if he had watched the video. Bernie froze. In his eyes, I saw recognition. He knew who I was, and that look told me he had watched my video. But, instead of engaging me, Bernie literally said nothing, then turned around and walked away.

It’s easy now to say that Bernie had a huge campaign to run, and was busy with other things. But in 2015, his campaign was not what it became by 2016 or 2020. It was small enough that he had the time to talk to me, and I appreciate that he did.

Bernie legitimately fought in the Civil Rights movement, and stood up for LGBTQ rights long before the Democratic establishment came around. He was the guy promoting himself as the one willing to fight for the little guy. Logically, he would be concerned with the escalation of violence at Trump events. Trumpers attacking people was not a regular occurrence. Had he spoken up at that early stage, maybe it would’ve made a difference.

But, Bernie was no longer Civil Rights movement Bernie, even in 2015. Whatever, his reasoning, he didn’t have the courage to stand up against what was so obviously wrong. I can’t even see how it would’ve been a detriment to his campaign.

Certainly, I could get into all the political hurdles Bernie would’ve had to traverse, such as a corrupt DNC, and a system that was rigged against him. This is true. I’ve told this story many times to my Bernie-supporting friends. They have always rejected it saying maybe he had other things going on, or it was this– or it was that– and not everything is about you. This is all true. I can’t even prove he saw the video, but in a moment of crisis, the look in Bernie’s eye told me he didn’t have it in him.

**PS… Just for a laugh, watch me sing at Joe Biden, “Joe Biden wrote the Patriot Act.”

 

I ask Bernie about peace.
