Yay Democracy! Long Live The Murdering Bastards

Israel and America - bringing the 'peace' to Palestine

Yay America! Democracy rulz! Doesn't it make ya feel good?! A 'sea change' in American politics no less! Democrats take control of Congress and the Senate, Nancy Pelosi, House Democratic leader is now House Majority leader, third in the power ranking in American politics behind the president and the white anti-Buddah Cheney. No more unchecked Republican and Presidential power, a new, bright future for everyone. I mean, how could it not be?

Post-Election Reality Check

So you think "the system worked", democracy has won out, and that yesterday's election is the first step to straightening out the mess Bush and the Neocons have made on the planet?

Think again. It's not that "the system" didn't work; it worked very well, but you have again been duped.

Nothing has changed. In fact, many of you have been put back to sleep by the staged Democratic victory which was set up just for that purpose; to make you think you still live in a democracy. The fact is, the Zionist halter is as firmly strapped on the head of American State policy as it ever was, and the American voter needs to realize that it is immaterial which party prevails at elections.

Bush Reveals Real Iraq Policy: Mass Slaughter Of Iraqi Civilians



US Terror

I used to have a little sympathy for those people who were still sitting on the fence over the justness of the Iraq invasion. I understood that the US government and mainstream media talking heads made an effort to imbue their official claims with a semblance of logic and reason, and that the American public could, to some extent, be forgiven for sanctioning illegal war and suffering. They were, after all being deceived.

Not anymore.

SOTT Podcast: It's the End of the World as We Know It (Do you feel fine?)

SOTT Podcast Logo
It is clear that the planet is in deep trouble, from war to global warming, from disease or just the threat of disease to the growing economic squeeze on the mass of humanity. Our leaders try to keep us in a state of fear in order to convince us that we need them to protect us. But they are the real enemy of people of conscience everywhere. What can you do about it?

As I am sure you can understand, it took me a while to digest last week's stomach turning story of the perverted private life of 'upstanding' Republican Representative Mark Foley.

For those that missed out on the story:

Manufacturing Anti-Semitism's No Joke



Borat - understanding 'anti-Semitism'

Zionist groupings like the ADL, AIPAC and the Israeli government regularly regale Jews and non-Jews alike with fantastical claims that "anti-Semitism is on the rise" and that all Jews must quickly flee to the 'safety' of Israel. These groups never waste an opportunity to remind those of Jewish faith that they can never rest easy among non-Jews, going so far as to assert that "hatred of Jews simply because they are Jews" may actually be an unconscious genetic trait of non-Jewish people.

Dude, where did Flight 77 go?
Recently it has come to my attention that there are a number of so-called "Historical Revisionists" who have taken up the idea that Adolf Hitler was a "good guy" and that, as one of them wrote to me recently, "we now need an American Leader like Hitler."

I am dismayed by such naivete, but not entirely surprised. For anyone who studies the nature of evil and its origins in psychological pathology, it is not a surprise that persons who are not fully familiar with this problem can be so easily taken in. It is, however, a perennial problem, and until normal people learn this most essential thing about our world, they are helpless, and there is no hope for change for the better. The fact is: we ALREADY have an American leader like Hitler.I frequently get emails and letters from readers who simply cannot understand how psychopaths - and other related or similar psychological deviants - can move into positions of power, how they can "put one over" on so many people. It strikes the average person as preposterous that even they can be taken in by a deviant. As I wrote in my blogpost, "The Cult of the Plausible Lie":
"Our culture agrees on the signs of lying. Ask anyone how to tell if someone is lying and they will tell you that they can tell by "lack of eye contact, nervous shifting, or picking at one's clothes." Psychologist Anna Salter writes with dry humor: "This perception is so widespread I have had the fantasy that, immediately upon birth, nurses must take newborns and whisper in their ears, "Eye contact. It's a sign of truthfulness." [Anna C. Salter, Ph.D.]
The problem is, if there is a psychopath - or those with related characteropathies - who doesn't know how to keep good eye contact when lying, they haven't been born. Eye contact is "universally known" to be a sign of truth-telling. The problem is liars will fake anything that it is possible to fake, so in reality, eye contact is absolutely NOT a sign of truth telling.
The practiced liar: a category of liar that even experts find it difficult to detect.

Problem is, even when dealing with people who are not practiced liars, such as college students who have volunteered for a research study of lying, most observers are not as good as they think in detecting deception. The research shows consistently that most people - even most professional groups such as police and psychologists - have no better than a chance ability to detect deception. Flipping a coin would serve as well. [Anna C. Salter, Ph.D.]

Murdering Children - Israel's Domestic Policy

In the past 8 weeks alone, the Zionist government of Israel and it's military apparatus have murdered 228 Palestinians, 37 of them children. Almost all of these children's names have been completely excluded from Western media reports, while at the same time, almost everyone knows the name of the single Israeli soldier whose capture ( allegedly by Palestinian militants) in June was used by the Israeli government to attack Lebanon and murder 1300 civilians.
