Dumbing Down America

For years during my writing career I had been saying that America was getting dumber….then the movie “Idocracy” came out and I thought then that it was very prophetic….and then in 2016 and the election and all doubt was removed……

The MSM has done an excellent job of making the American public dumber just the way the |leaders” want them to be……

This presentation focuses on the myriad ways in which the powers-that-be in the United States have been systematically dumbing down Americans as a society for a very long time – all by meticulously calculated design. Originally the term dumbing down was used as a slang expression in 1933 by film screenwriters to mean “revising [the script] so as to appeal to those of lower education or intelligence.”

The most obvious example of how Americans have been dumbed down is through this nation’s failed public education system. At one time not that long ago America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public K-12 education system on the planet. But over the last many decades while much of the rest of the world has been passing us by, it seems an insidious federal agenda has been implemented to condition and brainwash a population of mindless, robotic citizenry that simply does what it’s told, and of course the brainwashing commences early in America’s schools.

I know that  there will be those that disagree…..and that is fine…..even the NY Times has a similar outlook……

Of course there are some of my right wing brethren that will see this all too different…..so much “Fake News” but that all depends on where you stand as to whether this is fake news or not….personally I see it as a “good call”.

Traitors Of The Middle East

Breaking News (a little late)……..the pedophile in Alabama has lost the senate race……Jones has won….long live the republic.

By now the media has worked the Trump announcement of the move of the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem for all it is worth.  Finally the MSM has taken notice of what is happening in the “Holy Land” that is other than some Israeli being attacked or some errant missile flies into Southern Israel.  But the Western media only shows the protests by the Palestinians seldom the brutality of the Israeli forces….

Trump’s knee jerk decision was given birth to more protests all over the Middle East.  It all looks like the Arab people are behind the Palestinians….but what about the Arab leaders?

Jordan’s king has given support, so has Turkey the same with Lebanon…the Arab League has issued statement but it is a toothless warning……

Lebanon’s Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said during the emergency meeting that Arab nations should consider imposing economic sanctions against the United States to prevent it moving its Israel embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

“Pre-emptive measures (must be) taken … beginning with diplomatic measures, then political, then economic and financial sanctions,” he said, without giving specific details.

The Arab League is a toothless tiger thanx to the Saudis who are working much like the US at the UN Security Council…..but what good is it when the leader is an Israeli stooge?

The Palestinians stand little chance because the “leader” of the Arab World has been playing nice with Israel for several years trying to head off Iran’s growing presence in the Middle East.  I even read on Twitter that some twat from Saudi suggested that the Palestinians pick a village outside Jerusalem as their capital.

Then the country of Bahrain has sent a delegation of friendship to Israel…..

Amid ongoing controversy over the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem, a Bahraini delegation has arrived in Israel to “send a message of peace”, according to media reports.

A report in the Times of Israel on Sunday said the visit indicated a warming of ties between the two countries, which do not maintain diplomatic relations.

Looks like Bahrain is following the Saudi example and betraying the Arab world…..especially the Palestinians.

The question has been asked….what is up with the Saudis and Israel?

Israel and Saudi Arabia may seem unlikely allies in regional politics but recent developments have pushed Riyadh and Tel Aviv closer together, setting the stage for the Middle East’s strangest bedfellows.

The covert ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia, based on an alliance against the “common threat” of Iran, are part of a new regional paradigm, analysts say.

The inclusion of Israel as a potential partner reflects a break from the fragmented order in the Middle East, where since the early 2000s the United States has sought to create a hegemonic system to dominate West-friendly states, brought about by either elections or deposition.

This is a great moment for Qatar…..they can become the pillar for Palestinian statehood…..

Why would Trump do this ill advised thing  (the recognition)?

Trump’s decision was all about placating his base. There is no other strategic rationale for taking this step now, which is why the president’s advisers have struggled in background briefings to explain how it is in the United States’ security interest. And even the domestic politics for Trump are not very compelling: Sure, he promised to move the embassy during the campaign, but this was not a central tenet of his platform.

The Republic Survives! (Sarcasm)

By now the news of the defeat of the ‘Bama pedophile has been making every show on 24 hour news networks…..but in case you could care less….a short synopsis…….

It’s Doug Jones. The Democrat won election to the Senate from Alabama on Tuesday, dealing a political blow to President Trump, reports the AP. Jones narrowly defeated Republican Roy Moore, a one-time GOP pariah who was embraced by the Republican Party and the president even after facing allegations of sexual impropriety. An attorney and former prosecutor, Jones rallied voters on a message of moving past the Moore controversies. He was buoyed by an influx of national Democratic cash and endorsements.

Jones’ victory is set to narrow the slim Republican majority over Democrats in the Senate to 51-49. His win in the Republican stronghold energizes the Democratic Party as it looks to build on anti-Trump sentiment to mount a challenge next year to Republican control of Congress. With 92% of votes counted, Jones had 49.5% of the vote to Moore’s 48.8%, per CNN, which also called the race for Jones.

What does this mean?

It means that the GOP had a deeply flawed candidate.  It does not mean much more than that.  The networks would have us all believing that there is a ground swell for Dems…..I just do not see it.

But I see what the Dems are doing….they are setting the stage for 2018….they are putting out as much positive spin as possible over this election.  I understand why they are making more of this than there is…….

Jones needs to go and kiss every black person he meets for without them he would be shoveling Sassy’s crap.

Now on to 2018……and we will see just how big this vote was in reality.

Closing Thought–12Dec17

NYC had another attempted terrorist attack yesterday…..the problem was the guy had the IQ of a turnip and did more damage to himself than to any people near-by…….

The president made a comment……..all I can do is laugh…..Fearless Fosdick is as clueless as always.

Now on to today’s closing thought…….

We all remember 9/11 if for no other reason than it is all Guiliani can talk about when in front of a camera…….and most will also remember the Boston Marathon bombing, right?

Let me say before I go any further that I cannot verify all this info so I am just putting this out there for some thoughts….by posting this I by NO means think this is entirely accurate…….

This is a piece written on the blog for the Institute of Political Economy…..remember the Tsarnaev name….it is the name of the brothers that committed the crime (Boston Marathon bombing)….or did they?

FBI Evidence Proves Innocence of Accused Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Paul Craig Roberts

I have been contacted by attorney John Remington Graham, a member in good standing of the bar of the Minnesota Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court. He informs me that acting in behalf of Maret Tsanaeva, the aunt of the accused Tsamaev brothers and a citizen of the Kyrgyz Republic where she is qualified to practice law, he has assisted her in filing with the US District Court in Boston a pro se motion, including an argument of amicus curiae, and an affidavit of Maret Tsarnaeva. The presiding judge has ordered that these documents be included in the formal record of the case so they will be publicly accessible. The documents are reproduced below.

Interesting read…..is this for real or is it just another conspiracy theory?

Something to think about before I return in the morrow with more thought provoking stuff……chuq

The Morals And The Virtue

Today is the day……the final minutes of the Alabama election…..after tonight the news can move on to the next story they would like to beat to death…..what fresh Hell will suck the air out of the news?

You know when the news is so concerned about a candidate and his horse then the whole of society needs a re-make. What is by-product of horse digestion called?

But until that time…..how about a short quiz?

What would you think if I wrote…..”a ship named ‘Monkey Business'”?

Think back to 1987…….presidential politics……..come up with anything?

Gary Hart……his presidential dreams were brought down by a photo of a blond sitting on his knee…….keep that in mind and now fast forward to today……look at the president not even a audio tape could bring him down and now some big eared judge from Alabama with 8 accusations of sexual content and he is leading in the polls…….what happened to America from 1987 to 2017?

What counts as virtue among Western elites? As Aristotle teaches, if you can identify what a society considers to be virtuous or good, you can understand the moral outlook of that society’s institutions, from its schools to its foreign policy. One needs only to study any gathering of American elite culture to see that virtue, traditionally centered in personal character, has become redefined as public sympathy for humanitarian causes. When watching any cultural awards program, for example, one is treated to a parade of “beautiful” souls voicing support for myriad progressive causes. This moral preening has become so commonplace that a term has developed to characterize it: “virtue signaling.”

The West’s moral outlook is now animated by the widespread belief that virtue is measured by one’s professed sympathy for causes such as combatting homelessness, extending civil rights for various protected groups, and decrying poverty in far-off places. The more publicly ostentatious one is in attaching oneself to these causes, the more virtue one is assigned by our elite culture.

I cannot say about western society but it sure as well is ruining the US of A.

Death Of A Working Class Hero

I apologize this post was suppose to be posted yesterday but I got all sidetracked with medical stuff…..

37 years ago on this day, 08 December, John Lennon was shot and killed……I have chosen his best work in my opinion as a tribute to the man and the musician…

This one song tells more about society than a wealth of philosophers……

His talent has been sorely missed……chuq

Newest Body Shaming Technique

Saturday breaks and I am suffering from a doctor’s visit……..he says the foot is healing well but will know more on 02 January….hurry up and wait.

Now a days there is always something to shame a young girls body…..it started off with something simple like “muffin tops” then it moved to boobs, labias and now it has turned to that “Arm vagina”……..say what the Hell is an arm vagina……?

It all started with the muffin top, that telltale spillage of flesh over the top of a tight waistband. Then came the bingo wing, the supposedly shaming droop of flesh beneath middle-aged arms; or maybe it was the cankle (chubby ankle), or the saggy knee. I forget now.

It’s hard for women to keep track of which specific body part is currently being shamed to death, when it seems to be open season on all of them. But even by the demented standards of female self-flagellation, the emergence of “arm vagina” – aka the slight fold of flesh created where the average arm meets the average body – is a low point.

If you’re reading this in a public place and unable immediately to check whether you have arm vagina, then let me help; you almost certainly do. Everyone does. It’s basically a normal human armpit, which tends to involve some spare capacity in the flesh department, what with it being difficult to raise your arm otherwise.

Why cannot these people just be happy with themselves and not want to change their appearance……with ever new fad.

Too darn cold for the garden…….stay warm……I ill be back tomorrow…..peace out……chuq
