piss them

Now would be a good time for the NEA to fund a “Piss Christ” revival.
A work that is conspicuously absent from the USA Today’s round-up of great works aided with NEA grant funding.
In a USA Today series off the heals of a series of graphs showing various rural states beating out Cali and New York for per capita grant funding, so chew on that non bi-coastal elites!

The funny thing is, I have a sneaking suspicion that had it been “Piss Satan”, the controversy would have been the same, despite the fact that theoretically its message would be more in line with the constituencies of Jesse Helms and Patrick Buchanan.

If I’m understanding this “Benedict Option” correctly…

and as we are Looking for other “Benedict Option” parallels — basically other sub-cultures…  the idea of sub cultures it the ideal here and the reason this whole thing falls flat to me…

The desire to withdraw from a world hostile to your beliefs and tropes… form your own institutions, away from the secular institutions.  Obviously perilous in the question of what it means to be a member of society.

But beyond this.  Er… Doesn’t this already happen?  Like, even en masse?  Or are we going beyond Christian Rock and even the idea of home schooling your kids to some kind of commune or somethings?  Regarding the new developments that make this something to do now… is there about to be some new extry- Currency to counteract the demands of the state for bakeries to service gay marriages?

I.  Remember him?  Another term is beginning to crop up — one I’m reluctant to utter. It makes me think back to a lone protester, waving a nine-foot-long banner on a Palmer street corner during the Obama years. A Lyndon La Rouche, fan he proudly advertised that affiliation along with his bigger message. The man was clearly unbalanced and I don’t want to be associated with him. Yet there are people in Washington D.C. making similar noises now. What was the term?
He’s referring to famed Alaska protester Sidney Hill.  Who now has his own twitter page, where you can follow the basic Larouche line.  He gained renown for a lawsuit against him — an incident that ended with his acquital.  A punk rock song was inspired by his regular protests (“Wasting Your Life for La La La Larouche”, alas no longer on youtube).

II.  The Larouchies Take to CPAC!
Just outside of the Potomac Ballroom where Bossie spoke, I was greeted by a man handing out flyers on behalf of the Larouche Political Action Committee, an organization claiming to know the truth about a grand conspiracy involving a new “imperial order” and George Soros. “We need to take down Mr. Soros!” Yelled the man with the papers. Of course, I grabbed one, though making heads or tails of the content of said paper was a less certain outcome.

III.  KICKING IT IN BOSTON!
The ex has been out,trying to get signatures…usually in front of grocery stores,occasionally South Station in Boston. They manage to collect a few,no more than single digits,so the “thousands of signatures” surely are not coming from the Boston office.
Just this weekend,they were told to,and I quote, “go back to Russia” and Rachel was called a communist to her face. Apparently,their sign,saying” Russia is not the enemy” is not going over well here.
I’m waiting for the inevitable punch in the face from some disgruntled T rider,as they like to work the MBTA train stations,only to be told my T workers to that they’re not allowed to solicit on T property and stop bothering riders.

KICKING IT IN LA!
LaRouche movementites on Jefferson, something I didn’t think I’d see in 2017

IV.  History:  Kesha Rogers’s campaign now as Texas political loreFrom the fertile minds at Lyndon LaRouche and Co., this is a campaign video from Kesha Roger’s 2012 race for Congress from a Houston district, where she secured the Democratic nomination. This year, she is in the runoff for the Democratic Party’s nomination for U.S. Senate, even though she supports the impeachment of President Obama. (Rogers billboards pointing that out went up in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio this week.)

V.  WHO IS Joseph Ford Catto?  He appraised Lyndon Larouche round about 2013 for “Washington Times Community Pages” (Whatever that is).  Now, he’s interviewed Lyndon Larouche for “San Francisco Review of Books“.  Funny thing about the San Francisco Review of Books, the wikipedia page places the publication entirely in the past tense.  Funnier thing, the new San Francisco Review of Books is composed entirely of articles by Joseph Catto.

VI.  All’s well that ends well for Webster Tarpley.  Melania Trump, having been rebuffed in her bid against the Daily Mail, goes ahead and cuts out the lesser of the two parties she was suing.  And now Webster Tarpley can go back to — um — extolling the virtues of the Obama Administration, upholding the Affordable Care Act and thus leading to his old Alex Jonesian fan base to mockery — it’s safe to suggest that his appearances on Russia TV are over?
So after being a leading voice against Obama’s election you are now cheerleading his most fascistic boondoggle?!?
Tarpley is a genius on Venetian history, but cannot see progressive left are the new Venetians, protecting the deep state
Well, the Resistance is all about the World Historical Event.

VII.  The Larouchies have some work cut out for themselves, as they steer in their love of Trump well selling American government building of Russiaphobic paranoia to Russia State TV.  (As well, for Iranian TV, sticking to the basic liberal / left line on military spending and its repercussions globally, as against the current Trump Administration typical right-wing conservative tact of increasing military spending).

And good luck waiting for this one. (Trump’s policies inflamed negative public opinion: Analyst)
Jones further argued that the extreme measures Trump has taken on immigration “has fed into this campaign which has been fomented against him.”
Therefore, he said, Trump should learn to be a little bit more “tactful,” asserting that he really made a “wrong decision” on the immigration issue. 

VIII.  Jacques Cheminade.  Making waves (or his usual meandering to last place) as he runs for President of France in the new “Nationalist” era.  The larouchian party is thus getting referenced as “eurosceptic Solidarity et Progres party“.

IX.  Dan Schmitt. Glass Steagall. For the Farmers.  Not on board the Trump Train yet, even as the Larouche Movement he’s pledged to goes full force.
Andy Dolson sees Trump following Larouche’s blue-print against Soros-British-Empire… except for the Treasury pick.  Which you’d think would be, you know, huge.
On Glass Steagall.  Is it possible that this is going nowhere in the Trump Administration?  (The Executive Intelligence Review press release, after moving through a positive appraisal of a smudging answer they wouldn’t have accepted by the previous occupant, then goes on to praise the skype “journalists” that the Trump Press conference has been taking.)

 X.  Still the Enemy.
Barack Obama, after eight years of mass killing with drones and genocidal “regime change” wars, has refused to retire from his treasonous role, but is now leading an insurrection against the democratically elected President who solidly defeated his clone, Hillary Clinton, in the November election.
“Obama is actually highly vulnerable,” Lyndon LaRouche noted today. “He has exposed himself as a traitor to the United States.”
He goes on to finger George Soros as well.

The question is… Can he still be impeached?  Will an “Impeach Obama” call still bring in some fund-raising and attention?

I sense the note of Poetry in what the President was doing“…

In a discussion on Trump’s proported gaffe on Frederick Douglass, and in arguing there was no gaffe — the works of Douglass continues to grow and we can refer to Douglass in the press tense here at (ahem) “Black History Week”. Then we get to a brutal attack of The Elements of Style, Strunk and White.  (Strunk and White?  STUNK and White is more like it, amiright larouchies?)

XI. Footnotey If you check Ray’s footnotes, you’ll find that the main source for the volcano theory is Rogelio Maduro, the associate editor of 21st Century Science & Technology, a magazine published by the Lyndon LaRouche network. Maduro is evidently not part of the “agenda-oriented scientific community”–even though he does have a bachelor’s degree in geology.
NB makes note of the pee pee tape

XII.  So the question.   First Step in LaRouche Exoneration?  Is this the Lyndon Larouche Power Hour?
Now that Donald Trump is President of the United States, perhaps Lyndon LaRouche will be allowed to emerge from forced exile, as his enemies have now been outed and routed, and he should take his rightful place amongst one of America’s greatest heroes, thinkers, philosophers, writers, lovers of humanity and the United States of America.
Or just the Alex Jones Power Hour (mocked as he was on Saturday Night Live.)

Poor Lyndon will not live long enough to get his due. Even in death, his powerful enemies will continue to smear his name. Hopefully though, his organization will grow and continue his legacy by sweeping the supranational oligarchy into the dustbin of history.

Won’t be mocked on Saturday Night Live…

XIII.  The Trump Bash

In addition to a live feed from Washington, DC, where Trump will take the oath of office on Friday shortly before noon eastern time, the audience in Moscow can expect at least two “presentations” — one about the “political philosophy” of the “triptych” (the art collective’s belief that Russian President Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump and far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen will usher in a new world order), and another by Kirill Benediktov, a science-fiction writer with ties to the LaRouche movement. (Critics call that movement fascist or a political cult.) Benediktov recently wrote a book about Trump called “Black Swan,” where he reviews some of Trump’s past entrepreneurial escapades in Russia.

But… same… as … it … ever… was…

On Jan. 3, 2017, as the new 115th Congress convened in Washington, D.C., they were met by an organizing team from the LaRouche Political Action Committee. This team of political activists and volunteers walked the halls of Congress, buttonholed Senators and Congressmen, and took part in numerous meetings, whose primary focus centered on the emergency economic measures which must be taken to save the nation.

 

Andrew Jackson?

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Actually the line I’m thrown out by is…

If you did this to Andrew Jackson 200 years ago, he’d call you out on the street…”

as opposed to “made to destroy the destruction of our society … sick of the world they’re making for our kids”…

Mention Andrew Jackson on a Saturday Night Live sketch?

He does have a point.  Andrew Jackson killed a man, didn’t he?  In a dual.  Something that wouldn’t make for the destruction of our society, won’t somebody please think of the kids.

So.  When is Trump going to make his fabled re-appearance on Jones anyway?

One observation about Donald Trump and that there accusation that Obama had been wire-tapping him

… as per the revelations made by wikileaks release dump

It does show a concern for civil liberties, on down to the lay person  or lay political protester level, doesn’t it?  Theoretically…

Though more probably he believes in the pitfalls of the problem it with regards to himself and his goals.

Boredom circulates wild ideas that will land on partisans picking out their partisan winners of supposed “duels“.   With Hamilton — Burr, there was always a clear winner… at least of the damned duel if not the ideology behind the two combatants.
And we are back in the realm of “This is why people are voting for Trump” — the reality tv shows bowlderized our culture and made acceptable the behavior — , and a shaky yes, but… premise sets in.

On the coming of the “Ryan Care”, or “Trump Care”, or whatever it is called.  And it is, from the vantage point of the Tea Party figures out in the House, “Obama Care 2.0″ — or from Paul Krugman, “Obama Care 0.5″, take the central tenets of the Affordable Care Act and … half them?

Is it “Teh Socialism”.  After years of railing about the socialism, and getting the socialist threat up and running, anything and everything is.  But we’re back at a basic law of politics — this. is. the. testing. ground. for. the success. and failure. of the. president. who is. a member. of. your party.  What bogs him down bogs you down.  As such, the rule of getting the House on board slips away — sure, go away Thomas Massie.  And up to the Senate, Rand Paul already gave himself away in the Senate with earlier statements on “Republicans investigating Republicans”.

Why it takes 51 votes (or 50 votes plus Pence) to get this passed and took 60 states for the Democrats to get the ACA passed is a matter of whatforth “Reconciliation” wroughts.

Why is this popping up…

3January_horizontal_static_728x90 … when I skip through the “Washington Monthly” website?
Shouldn’t it appear when I skip through, oh, The National Review?

bushmissmething  I suppose the challenge comes in trying to make this message, the message of this sign, something of not a reality.  It’s a sign that, at the time it made news near the beginning of the Obama Administration begged the question “Is this… Pro Obama, or anti-Obama?”  It seemed to be readable in both ways.

I hate to say it, but Bush never slid to the realm of “Impeach HIM!”  I recall musing as his administration stumbled toward the end of the second term in a lame-duck manner of how we might reshape the government to allow a new president — one of the same party not connected to the current occupant — if his approval rating falls into the 30s for a sustained manner of time.

But he sustained himself and knew he was the most admired and least admired man in America… by dent of his position… and could persist accordingly.  It’s a low threshold of respectability the current figure in the White House isn’t able to rise to.

But that’s “Andrew Jackson” Democracy for you?
