Micah Xavier Johnson is a Hero

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

Before you call Homeland Security to take me away, stop and think about that title. I didn’t say Johnson is MY hero; I said he’s A hero. And even if I did declare Johnson my hero, so what? Does free speech still exist?

Micah Xavier Johnson

As I write this, I’ll bet there are millions of Americans who are toasting Micah Johnson as a martyred hero. He did something big and bold that earned him far more than five minutes of fame. He also apparently has the distinction of being the first U.S. citizen killed by a robot. Cool.

Unlike political prisoners like Leonard Peltier and innocent people (mostly black) who spend their entire lives in prison as the result of “wrongful convictions,” Johnson won’t spend the rest of his life slowly rotting in a concrete cell, one piece at a time.

And it gets better.

Johnson had no criminal record. He apparently acted on his own, and it wouldn’t be accurate to call his explosion on the world stage an act of random violence. It was carefully planned, and he was fighting for a cause bigger than himself.

The most amazing revelation for me is that Johnson isn’t associated with ISIS. In fact, I read somewhere or other that he has no terror ties. Believe it or not, it sounds like the U.S. government may have actually had nothing to do with Micah Johnson’s shooting spree. We aren’t talking about 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing or the Orlando nightclub shooting. The Dallas event was apparently the work of one man, and it occurred just a few blocks from where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in an attack likely orchestrated by the same people who planned 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing and the Orlando nightclub shooting.

I could be wrong. Like the alleged perpetrators of those earlier events, Micah Johnson has been forever silenced. It’s possible that he was working for the CIA. Maybe someone in the Oval Office complained about the public beginning to see through their lies about endless mass killings inevitably blamed on Muslims. “Let’s plan a mass shooting by someone who isn’t a Muslim!” said one sharp-minded colleague who wanted to do his part to promote gun control.

But, for now, I want to believe that Micah Xavier Johnson was a lone crusader who wasn’t manipulated by some shadowy political organization and had no microchips implanted in his body. But would it be possible for an individual to take out a dozen police officers single-handedly, with no assistance?

Of course. Lone individuals can accomplish far bigger things than that.

That’s one of the reasons the criminal class is frothing at the mouth over gun control. Criminals fear nothing more than accountability, which can also be spelled justice. And when the criminal class makes the quest for justice a lost cause, it can transform into revenge.

Perspectives

I read somewhere about some law enforcement bureaucrat insisting that our two-faced pResident, Obama, should give one uniform statement, rather than two separate statements for the police and the black community Obama claims to care about. (You can hear some examples of Obama’s double-speak @ Obama’s Growing Frustration After Fatal Police Shootings.)

In fact, we could and should examine this incident from multiple perspectives. After all, your opinions are going to depend largely on your race, gender and income group. If you’re black, you may very well be cheering for Micah Johnson. If you’re a white right-winger, you’re sympathy probably lies with the police. And if you’re a Jew, you may be working to co-opt the Black Lives Matter movement with the most important message the world could hear: Jewish Lives Matter.

Below are my comments on the ethics of the Dallas shooting, gun control and a few other items.

Ethics

Many people will argue that Micah Johnson couldn’t have possibly known the people he was killing and therefore probably killed innocent people. That’s a very good argument, but there are some counterarguments to consider.

First, it’s a good bet that at least some of the slain officers weren’t so innocent.

In Dallas police shootings: Who are the victims? we learn that Brent Thompson served as a U.S. Marine and trained police in Iraq and Afghanistan while working as a private military contractor (DynCorp).

Frankly, Thompson sounds like a piece of trash to me. As a taxpayer, I do not approve of MY tax dollars being used to invade and occupy other countries, let alone torture and murder innocent people in those countries. Nor am I crazy about the idea of brain-dead marines and soulless military contractors serving as police officers. DynCorp is not without its controversies, by the way.

Patrick Zamarripa was a Navy veteran who served three tours in Iraq, while Michael Smith was a former Army ranger. An article in the right-wing Seattle Times also stressed that one of the slain officers was an Iraq veteran, as if there’s something special about Iraq veterans. Which begs the question: How many children did these people kill in Iraqistan?

Of course, most American football patriots dismiss dead children as “collateral damage,” and, to cover any loose ends, they dismiss just about any war crime with the observation that “they were only following orders.”

In that spirit, we can dismiss any innocent people killed by Micah Johnson as collateral damage in a war between the rich and the powerful and the people they exploit.

Make no mistake, we are at war. Tens of millions of Americans have been downsized to an alarming degree — to the point that some have declared the middle class an endangered species — while Bill Gates is now worth an estimated $80 billion. The average worker can’t afford to buy a house in Seattle, which has transformed into a haven for yuppies whose lives are dedicated to making enough money to retire to a nice city, like Vancouver, while making Bill Gates and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos richer in the process.

In the process, the U.S. is quickly evolving into a police state, with the police working for Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and the Jews. Law enforcement’s job is to keep people like you and me in our place. In that capacity, the police often serve as terrorists. We’ve all seen videos of police kicking pregnant women in the belly, stomping on people’s faces, assaulting innocent people with batons, pepper spray and rubber bullets. Seattle’s epic WTO protest was perhaps most remarkable for the live footage of rogue police officers, resembling an army of Darth Vaders.

And the cell phone videos that probably bring in huge advertising profits on YouTube (owned by Google, which is in turn owned by Jews) are just the tip of the iceberg. No one knows how many people are raped and murdered by law enforcement officials in the U.S. each year. The number who are beaten or otherwise terrorized must be appalling. A co-worker recently told me about a rogue police officer who terrorized him on campus when he was a high school student. Another told me about an officer who pulled him over, then hit on his girlfriend.

If you think it’s OK for police officers to terrorize children and minorities, to rape and steal at will and basically do whatever they want with little fear of being held accountable, then you’re probably a member of the upper class, a hard core right-winger or a Jew (most of whom are upper class right-wing Democrats).

And police officers aren’t America’s only bullies. Many public schools principals are little more than thugs designed to keep teachers, students and any parents bold enough to care about their children in their place. School officials in general are bullies, as are many elected officials and their appointees. Public forums are commonly attended by a variety of enforcers, including undercover cops, undercover corporate attorneys, undercover media whores and seemingly ordinary citizens who function as spies and informers.

Bullying in the workplace is so commonplace, it’s often regarded as a big yawn. Some employers warn employees that they can be fired for what they post on Facebook. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING.

Gun Control

Obama wasted no time in exploiting the Dallas shooting as another opportunity to plug gun control.

If Obama wants gun control, you know it has to be bad. And Obama isn’t alone. Check out the article New Trend: Billionaires ‘Buying Gun Control’.

It’s US vs THEM, and they want to take our guns away so we can’t defend ourselves.

In fact, one of the leading proponents of gun control is Bill Gates, whose father backed a recent Washington State gun control initiative. Of course, we’ll never hear St. Bill Gates speak out against rogue cops any more than he’s ever spoken out against war. Nor does Bill Gates have anything to say about Black Lives Matter, though his numerous connections with Zionist and other Jewarchistic groups suggest he may soon be marching in a Jewish Lives Matter protest.

The incident in Dallas only strengthens my opposition to gun control.

“People like Micah Johnson only make things worse for the rest of us!”

Wrong.

People who say stupid things like this are the ones who make things worse for all of us. They’re generally either mired in apathy, or they’re whores for the criminal class (e.g. propagandists).

Even that famous Holohoaxer Elie Wiesel focused on the evil of indifference. If your head is stuck in the sand or buried in Xbox, you’re part of the problem.

Micah Johnson cut through all that red tape and government double-talk and made it clear that people are fed up with police brutality. If the government reacts by tightening the screws on gun control and/or our civil liberties, you have only yourself to blame. The government does whatever it wants because of people like you.

So how should we react to government sanctions?

Well, I’m not going to risk prison by encouraging additional police massacres in other major cities. Suffice it to say that, when you’re at war, you do whatever it takes to win.

Of course, it’s hard to fight a war if you don’t know who the enemy is, and it would be a grave mistake to think that law enforcement is the only enemy. We need to look at the people law enforcement works for. That’s right, the enemy includes the people who run our country.

Again, I’m not going to risk prison by encouraging the assassination of Obama or any particular corporate tycoon. But I won’t hesitate to state my belief that there a helluva lot of people in this country who deserve one helluva a punishment for their crimes.

My Hypocrisy

Yes, I know. Micah Xavier Johnson served in the military I so despise. He was stationed in Afghanistan.

You can also call me a racist, because I especially despise black people who enlist in the U.S. military. Why would someone who’s presumably well acquainted with racism want to help the U.S. military slaughter Muslims? Muhammad Ali certainly wouldn’t have approved.

Moreover, Johnson allegedly hated white people. I’m white, and it’s illogical to support people who want to kill you, right?

If an anti-white person attempted to kill me, I’d certainly defend myself. However, I do have a brain, and I understand their rage. It’s the same anger and hatred I feel towards people who exploit me — Republicans, Democrats, union whores, media whores, Jews and on and on.

Let’s face it, the U.S. has become a nation of assholes, and the U.S. is controlled by the rich and powerful, most of whom are white, with Jews increasingly pulling the strings.

So, no, I don’t consider myself a hypocrite. I’ve done my best to make sense of a situation that’s very complex and very simple at the same time.

I don’t know what compelled Micah Johnson to enlist in the military. Perhaps he joined for economic reasons — the same economic reasons that explain why there are so few Jews in the military, even though we’re fighting Israel’s wars. Maybe his eyes were opened once he arrived in Afghanistan, just as my eyes were opened long after my stint in the military.

All I know is that Micah Johnson apparently harbored a rage that I understand and empathize with, and he wasn’t following orders when he made his stand. In my opinion, that elevates him above the brain-dead troops hailed as “America’s finest.” And if we react by condemning Micah Johnson without pondering the big picture, then we will only hasten the day the first innocent person is killed by a bomb-carrying robot or drone guided by some former military contractor working for your local police department.

Please believe in THE POWER OF ONE. One person can make an enormous difference in the world. One person — actually, one idea — can start a war, or end one, or subvert an entire power structure. One discovery can cure a disease or spawn new technology to benefit or annihilate the human race. You as ONE individual can change millions of lives. Think big. Do not limit your vision and do not ever compromise your dreams or ideals.

Iris Chang

P.S. As a political activist and candidate for Washington State Governor, I’m promoting legislation that would protect private citizens from rogue police. This could include the legal right to shoot a police officer in self-defense. It would certainly include dramatically stiffer penalties for police who needlessly assault people. It would also include penalties for police officers who stand by and watch their colleagues assault people. We also need to shoot down this ridiculous standard that makes police testimony in court unimpeachable. Stay tuned as I continue to work on these ideas…

Statement on Elie Wiesel

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

The Passing of a Legend

July 2, 2016 marked the death of Elie Wiesel, who was probably second only to Anne Frank as the name most associated with the Holocaust. The timing was a little eerie, because I was hard at work on my series Jews 101 when I learned of Wiesel’s passing. It gets weirder still because another famous Holocaust survivor is currently making headlines — the famous Nazi-hunter, Simon Wiesenthal.

Ouch! Brother Nathanael was just as hard on Eli Weasel as I was, and he even includes a photo that proves he had no tattoo on his arm. See Who will replace Elie Wiesel?.

Wiesenthal died several years ago, but the city of New York recently cut off its “spigot of funds” to the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which is at the center of some huge scandal, like most Jewish “charities.” Speaking of corruption, did you know about Elie Wiesel’s connections to Bernie Madoff, who could be called the Elie Wiesel of fraud?

It all started with one of Elie Wiesel’s scams, the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, which he established in 1988. Like a number of other well-known Jewish “charities,” the Foundation was easy pickings for Uncle Bernie, the financier who was arrested in late 2008 and accused of running a $50 billion Ponzi scheme. Wiesel said he ended up losing $15.2 million in foundation funds, along with his and his wife’s own personal investments. He probably hated Bernie Madoff more than anyone except Adolf Hitler. The irony is that Hitler would have taken care of Madoff if he was still alive.

You see, Wiesel, Wiesenthal and Madoff are all Jews, and Madoff isn’t necessarily the worst of the three. Wiesel and Wiesenthal are both widely regarded as liars, and that’s just the beginning.

Wiesel and Wiesenthal both claimed to have spent time in Nazi concentration camps, and both milked their misadventures for all they were worth. Ironically, some people suspect that neither one ever set foot in a concentration camp. Indeed, Wiesel is perhaps the most popular poster boy for the Holohoax camp. Others believe there was a Holocaust of sorts and Wiesel and Wiesenthal really were caught up in it, but they greatly exaggerated the horrors they witnessed.

As I researched Elie Wiesel, I discovered a story so remarkable I’m amazed Hollywood never turned Wiesel into a movie star. The story is complex, too; Wiesel was a man who could be loved or hated, depending on one’s perspective.

So I decided to write two eulogies for Wiesel. The first is written from the perspective of an anti-Zionist or an anti-Jewarchist who hates Jewish corruption in general. The anti-Jewish/NeoNazi crowd will enjoy it, too. The second is written for the Elie Wiesel fan club, which includes people involved with the Holocaust Industry as well as Microsoft shareholders and the Andy Warhol cult.

1. The Bill Gates of Holohoaxers

Just for argument’s sake, suppose Wiesel wrote and spoke the truth, and the Germans who gave us the Holocaust were just as evil as he claimed. Suppose they were as twisted as Obama, who flaunts his Nobel Peace Prize even as he slaughters innocent people with unmanned drones and continues callously torturing people. I would still despise Elie Wiesel (who was also awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986). Why?

Suffering does different things to different people. Some people rise above their suffering and learn to empathize with others who are also suffering. They become voices of compassion and wisdom. Nelson Mandela and Helen Keller come to mind.

Then there are people like that batshit crazy senator from Arizona, John McCain, who claims he was tortured while held as a prisoner in North Vietnam. Assuming he really was tortured, we should condemn the Vietcong for letting that piece of shit out of his cage.

Elie Wiesel was more similar to John McCain than to Helen Keller or Mandela.

Elie Gates, meet Bill Wiesel

However, a better comparison would be Elie Wiesel and Bill Gates. Combine Woody Allen’s forlorn face with Bill Gates’ famously untamed hair, and you might have an Elie Wiesel lookalike. But beauty is more than skin deep.

Like Bill Gates, Elie Wiesel was a con man. Like Gates he claimed to care about humanity while really advancing his personal agenda. Wiesel even attended the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, an event perhaps most closely associated with Bill Gates.

Oprah Winfrey, too!

Another person I’d like to weave into this story, just for the Hell of it, is Oprah Winfrey. Like Wiesel, she’s a media whore, though the similarities pretty much end there.

Oprah once declared that anyone who criticizes Obama must be racist, just as people who criticize Israel are racist. Obama, who has all but transformed into a Jew himself, showed his appreciation by giving Oprah the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Next thing you know, Oprah will follow Obama’s lead and start wearing one of those stupid Jewish prayer caps.

On second thought, Oprah does resemble Elie Wiesel in another important respect; she exploits child abuse the way the Weasel exploits the Holocaust. Which isn’t to say Oprah wasn’t really a victim of child abuse. Who knows?

Oprah once accompanied Wiesel to Germany, where they toured the concentration camps Wiesel once called home. Maybe some day she’ll visit Gaza.

The Arm Mystery

Elie Wiesel may have a secret in common with former Seattle Mayor Norm Rice. Rice was allegedly shot by his wife after she caught him in bed with another lover (a man). I always wondered why Rice didn’t shut critics up by just rolling up his sleeve and showing them a scar-less arm.

Similarly, Wiesel claimed the Nazis tattooed A-7713 on his left arm, but some critics claim he lied. The world’s most famous tattoo can’t even be seen in photos of Elie wearing short-sleeved shirts.

The Two Faces of Elie Wiesel

Wiesel did his part to prevent Iran from making nuclear weapons, though he apparently had nothing to say about Israel’s illegal nuclear arsenal. The Times (London) refused to run his ad condemning Hamas for the “use of children as human shields” during the 2014 Israel-Gaza massacre (when Israeli storm troopers killed a helluva lot of children, shields or not). He also declared that “Jerusalem is above politics . . . it belongs to the Jewish people.” Screw the genuine Semites who have lived there for centuries.

Elie Wiesel blasted Fidel Castro, ranting about political prisoners, yet never missed a chance to be photographed with Obama, who’s still torturing people on some island in the Caribbean…could it be Cuba?

No hypocrisy there! And for good measure, Elie hammed it up with George W. Bush, too. Indeed, he supported George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq as a necessary moral act.

I’ll shed no tears for Elie Wiesel, who was obvious a RACIST LIAR AND HYPOCRITE.

2. Elie Wiesel & Campbell’s Soup: Good for the Soul

Anyone who views Elie Wiesel as a humanist or political activist is going to be sadly disappointed when they discover the truth. But what difference does it make if he really wasn’t a warrior for truth and justice at all? What if he was just a pop artist who liked to pretend he cared?

In fact, Wiesel seemed to fashion himself a storyteller, even admitting that he didn’t have a high regard for the truth. And you have to admit his gift paid off.

He became a millionaire, even if Bernie Madoff stole his fortune. He was given the Nobel Peace Prize and a knighthood.

Elie wrote over fifty books. Some people describe them as little more than clones of his first book with different titles. But what difference does that make if people bought them? In addition, Elie wrote in both French and English and learned even more languages in his youth. He also became a college professor.

Elie helped establish the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and publicly condemned the 1915 Armenian genocide. If he had lived a little longer, he probably would have commented on the ongoing Native American genocide.

What other honors could one want? The Los Angeles Times called Elie Wiesel “the most important Jew in America.” And who could forget Three Dog Night’s classic hit “Eli’s Coming”?

Westward Bound

Imagine if Elie Wiesel had been born about 75 years earlier in Pennsylvania instead of Transylvania. Imagine if he could have accompanied Mark Twain on his epic tour of the Wild West. Think of the stories those two could have wove!

Take the story about the 6,000 Jewish prisoners who were forced to march 170 miles. Less than 5,000 survived, including a stoic youth with an amputated toe and a gangrenous foot. At the end of the march, he collapsed in the snow and was pronounced dead. He was then taken to a crematorium, where it was discovered he was still alive.

For the next three months he was confined to bed, with the gangrene spreading up to his knee. Surviving on 200 calories a day didn’t help. But when the Americans finally arrived to liberate the Jews, he happily waltzed out to greet them.

That stoic youth wasn’t Pecos Bill or Paul Bunyan; it was the great Nazi-hunter, Simon Wiesenthal. When I read about a tourist blowing his foot off in New York’s Central Park, not far from Wiesel’s funeral, I was reminded of Wiesenthal’s gangrenous foot. Was that the message the tourist was trying to send out?

The Andy Warhol Factor

Of course, Elie Wiesel had nothing to do with the Wild West. He was an urban icon of the modern era. In fact, he bore a striking resemblance to the ultimate pop icon, Andy Warhol.

Consider some of these amazing coincidences…

• Their parents all hailed from the former Austro-Hungarian empire. (Austro stands for Austria, not Australia.)
• Elie Wiesel was born in Transylvania, Andy Warhol in Pennsylvania.
• Elie Wiesel’s Holocaust Museum is matched by Andy Warhol’s Andy Warhol Museum.
• A 2009 article in The Economist described Warhol as the “bellwether of the art market.” Similarly, Wiesel could have been described as the “bellwether of the Holocaust industry.” As long as he was profiting from the Holocaust, lots of other Jews were raking in the cash, too.

Like Elie Wiesel, Andy Warhol was no stranger to pain. He was a hypochondriac. His father died when he was only 13. One can hardly imagine how Warhol felt when he learned that seven prints of his famous Campbell’s Soup Cans were stolen from an art museum in Missouri. (The FBI offered a $25,000 reward for their recovery.)

Warhol was always surrounded by weirdos. Similarly, Wiesel could have been described as a pain magnet. He was constantly surrounded by the suffering, as long as they weren’t Muslims. He was even photographed with the famous pop singer Cyndi Lauper, who’s waging a private battle with psoriasis.

Andy Warhol’s life was arguably more tragic than Wiesel’s, because he died at a much younger age. After a priest said a brief prayer and sprinkled holy water on Warhol’s casket, one of his weird friends dropped a bottle of the Estee Lauder perfume “Beautiful” into the grave. Someone at Holohoax headquarters apparently arranged for a tourist to blow his foot off during Wiesel’s funeral. Not to be outdone, Mormons posthumously baptized the parents of the the late Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal.

One almost gets the sense that Wiesel and his Nazi-hunting friend were a little weird, similar to Warhol. Of course, the similarity between Andy Warhol’s often photographed white hair and that magnificent replica of an old growth forest on Wiesel’s head is a show stopper. Not even Bill Gates can compete with those two.

In that spirit, I’d like to ask all the anti-Zionists and Jew haters to take a chill pill and just accept Elie Wiesel for what he was — a Transylvanian weirdo who was just trying to make a buck like the rest of us. If he made his fortune by spouting lies, so what? We could make the same complaint about Bill Gates, Obama or just about any American politician, corporate attorney or media whore. So put your Xbox down and make a donation to your nearest Holocaust Museum, Inc.

Elie Wiesel
Elie Wiesel Lookalikes Which of these four celebrities do you think most resemble Elie Wiesel? Left to right: Woody Allen, Andy Warhol, Bill Gates, Mao Zedong
Woody WieselWoody Wiesel: Woody Allen had sex with his adopted daughter, while Elie Wiesel screwed taxpayers. Though neither Wiesel nor the wood man would be much fun at a party, there was actually much more depth to Wiesel’s character. It’s a good bet that Woody Allen’s funeral will be just as dull as his life. Woody WieselBill Wiesel: Bill Gates may actually be a better liar than Elie Wiesel was, and he never got ripped off by Bernie Madoff. Still, one can only wonder how much money Wiesel could have made if he had owned Microsoft and integrated it with the Holocaust Industry. Then again, some people think that’s what Bill Gates has done.
Mao WieselMao Wiesel: Chairman Wiesel and Mao Zedong had a lot in common, including statues and museums. Like Wiesel’s Nazi-hunting friend, Simon Wiesenthal, Mao was famous for his “Long March,” though he wasn’s handicapped by gangrene. Elie WarholElie Warhol: This picture proves that Elie Wiesel had awesome cool potential. He could have invented crappy software and tracked down the Nazis the U.S. government imported into America at the same time.

Andy Warhol Sculpture

This statue of Andy Warhol looks similar enough to Elie Wiesel to represent both. It should be relocated to the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.

In the meantime, It’s rumored that Paul Allen, inspired by the wild success of his EMP project, is thinking of emulating the crushed Coke can look in a sister museum that will let visitors explore the Holocaust up close. It’s tentatively named THE, an acronym for The Holocaust Experience.

THE

Artist’s conception of Paul Allen’s THE project, which would consist primarily of the main THE exhibit, supported by THIS and THAT wings. THE is essentially a mirror image of Paul Allen’s EMP, which one reporter described as a “crushed Coke can” — a pretty stupid comment when it obviously looks like THREE crushed Coke cans. THE is very close to the tax-subsidized headquarters of the Gates Foundation, which has been dubbed the Bernie Madoff of Philanthropy. Note the Andy Warhol/Elie Wiesel sculpture in the foreground.

Those Invisible Socialists

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

I love socialism, in the broad sense of the term. I’m not a huge fan of communism, though I don’t think it’s necessarily evil; if it works for certain countries — perhaps at a certain stage of their evolution or during a crisis — then up with communism. I certainly don’t think communism is worse than free market capitalism, which is killing the planet.

To summarize the opening paragraph, I love socialism, and I actively support it. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who did more to support Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez or Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi. Fidel Castro is another of my heroes, and Che Guevara was perhaps the ultimate political rock star. Kudos to Chavez’ Latin American allies, to Chile’s Salvador Allende and the Congo’s Patrice Lumumba.

So why don’t you hear me cheering for Bernie Sanders and Seattle’s Kshama Sawant?

The answer is simple: They aren’t socialists.

Sorry, I don’t have time to offer an exhaustive investigative report supporting my claim. As a veteran political activist, I can smell those clowns a mile away. But for newcomers to the political arena, I’ll offer a few observations.

First, you really should run for public office some day; it’s a very educational experience. You’ll discover that the election process is even more corrupt than you thought. You probably know the media are corrupt — so why do you vote for candidates who have been endorsed by the corporate media (including the so-called alternative media), candidates such as Bernie Sanders and Kshama Sawant? And why would they even deign to attend media endorsement interviews when they should be blowing the whistle on the media?

I’ve been a candidate for three offices, the Seattle School Board, the Washinton State Superintendent of Public Insruction and Washington State Governor. I speak from vast experience when I tell you that getting elected to the lowly Seattle School Board is probably more difficult than climbing Mt. Everest barefoot. A combination of establishment corruption and public apathy and stupidity ensures that only people vetted by corporations will be (s)elected to the School Board.

But elections aren’t just about getting elected. I’ve continued to run for office against all odds, partly because it’s an educational experience — for both me and the relatively people who listen to what I have to say. And I once again speak from vast experience when I tell you the establishment does everything in its power to silence you. When I run for office the media spend about 5% of their time insulting me, the other 95% of the time ignoring me.

And it gets worse. My websites and even my laptop have been hacked. I’ve been widely censored on the Internet. I’ve even received death threats.

So how much harder must it be to get elected to the Seattle City Council, where Sawant now sits? Getting elected to state office is harder still, and do you really think the plutocrats who control our government would allow a genuine reformer to get one tenth as much publicity as Bernie Sanders has received?

Not convinced? Let’s take a closer look at Bernie Sanders, Kshama Sawant and a mystery socialist, Mary Martin.

Bernie Sanders

There’s an infamous video of Bernie Sanders “grilling” Alan Greenspan that says it all. I haven’t watched the entire video; I simply hit a brick wall when Sanders suddenly stops the grilling and says “You’re an honest person — I think you just don’t know what’s going on in the real world.” (You can hear his words at about :40 in this video.)

If you have a brain, it shouldn’t be hard to understand my disgust. Greenspan served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve for nearly two decades. During that time, he must have read newspapers and magazine articles. He probably watched himself on TV many times. He probably fielded thousands of questions and tirades from the public. And he didn’t know what was going on?

It’s worth noting that Greenspan and Sanders are both Jews. That isn’t a crime by itself, but the scope of Jewish influence on the U.S. government is frankly frightening.

The Federal Reserve was created by Jews. If you don’t understand the significance of that bit of information, don’t feel bad; it was many years before I finally got it.

If you visit Bernie Sanders’ website @ berniesanders.com, you’ll discover that he tackles quite a few issues. That’s an obvious plus. But if you take a closer look, you might find a few question marks.

In 2007, a firebrand named Obama made a lot of promises — promises that were quickly forgotten after he got elected. So how much of Sanders’ commentary is just empty rhetoric?

Sanders says, “The U.S. must do everything it can to make certain that Iran does not get a nuclear weapon, that a nuclear Iran does not threaten Israel, and to prevent a nuclear arms race in the region.”

So what does Sanders have to say about Israel’s nuclear weapons? And what about Israel’s continuing threats against Iran? And where’s Bernie’s proof that Iran is building a nuclear bomb?

Sanders certainly doesn’t meet my standards for activist websites. He doesn’t have anything similar to my Politix 101 series, and his site isn’t particularly well organized. Nor does Sanders sound the alarm on the corporate media or other enemies of the republic political newbies should be warned about.

If you take the time to do a little research, you can find plenty of holes in the Bernie Sanders myth. Though I haven’t fact-checked all their claims, the articles Bringing together criticism of Bernie Sanders and The Myth of Bernie Sanders (CounterPunch) are a good beginning.

And, no, I don’t really consider CounterPunch a reputable website. It’s an example of the alternative media that work hand-in-hand with the corporate media. Yet the alternative media are typically a better source of information, and they have to get at least some of their facts right in order to perpetuate the illusion that they’re truthmongers. Ironically, the alternative media are generally Sanders’ biggest supporters. So read the article and draw your own conclusions.

Kshama Sawant

The most apathetic, stupid and self-centered people on the planet live in Seattle. I learned that lesson after I transformed from a mild-mannered teacher into a political activist and candidate for public office. “Deal with it” should be the city’s official motto.

It’s so bad that I long ago gave up on ever finding intelligent life in this wretched metropolis of corporate pigs and homeless victims.

Yet every few years, the media start pumping out exciting news about the latest political activist to light up the political scene, and the stupefied populace goes wild.

I remember the night I was on my way to work when I heard horns honking and wild cheering in celebration of Obama’s election. “Clueless idiots,” I muttered to myself as I continued on my way.

Today, Seattleites’ eyes glaze over when they hear the magic name BERNIE SANDERS. Sanders’ 2016 presidential bid spawned its biggest rally in the city of dim bulbs.

But Sanders has competition from another self-advertised socialist, Kshama Sawant. Actually, they support each other.

Widely promoted as a “firebrand,” Kshama popped up out of nowhere several years ago and got elected to the Seattle City Council.

Sawant is the first socialist elected to public office in Seattle since Anna Louise Strong was elected to the Seattle School Board in 1916. Strong’s colleagues organized a recall campaign, which ended her political career. But don’t expect a similar ending to the Sawant charade.

The logical place to search for information on Kshama Sawant is the Internet, and what better place to begin than her website?

In fact, her campaign website was located at www.kshamasawant.org. Unfortunately, the site is now as vacant as her supporters’ brains. I thought it would be fun to buy the domain kshamasawant.com and use it to ridicule Sawant. However, I discovered that she owns it. Click on this link and see what happens: www.kshamasawant.com

That’s right; you’re redirected to www.kshamasawant.org. Two websites without a shred of information.

Of course, you can always check her official City Council page. Click the “Welcome” link and you’ll see a whopping four paragraphs of rhetoric. The first and last paragraphs emphasize Sawant’s support of the $15 minimum wage. More about that shortly.

There’s also a link to an official City Council blog, where you can find an ongoing stream of rhetoric and propaganda.

OK, what about that $15 minimum wage? Exactly: What about it?!

The $15 minimum wage isn’t a particularly complex or divisive issue. You probably could’t find a single elected official in Seattle who’s against. In fact, simple logic dictates that it couldn’t have been enacted unless a majority voted for it. So why is Kshama being singled out for all the praise?

She was simply looking for a lame issue to hitch her wagon to — similar to Bill Gates’ eternal claim that he wants to help education.

Speaking of Bill Gates, don’t expect Kshama to defy the local taboo against criticizing Seattle’s Godfather, especially when her ex-husband works for Microsoft. Kshama herself is a former software engineer. (That may explain why she doesn’t have a credible personal website.) Oh, yes — she’s from India, the source of much of Microsoft’s labor. A conspiracy theorist might suspect that Bill Gates himself appointed Kshama Sawant to the Seattle City Council.

I read somewhere that Sawant called for the break up of Microsoft. What a daring statement!

But it was just empty rhetoric. There’s little or no mention of Microsoft on her City Council site and no information at all on her two personal websites.

Sawant could point out that she wasn’t endorsed by the all powerful Seattle Times. A conspiracy theorist could then counter that it was planned that way, because such an endorsement would make her look like an insider. In fact, Sawant was endorsed by the Zionist tabloid The Stranger.

Check out the The Stranger’s search page. I’ve run for office ten times and am by far Seattle’s most vocal political activist. But if you type my name into the search box (as of May 28, 2016), you get 25 hits, all of them either insults or comments posted by me. Type in Kshama Sawant, and you get 2,200 hits.

This suggests that if I dropped all my issues and began campaigning for a $15 minimum wage instead, The Stranger might support me. The only problem is that Sawant has dibs on that issue.

Mary Martin

Our third mystery socialist is Mary Martin, who is currently running for the office of Washington State Governor. She apparently ran for the same office in 2012, though the details are as sketchy as Kshama Sawant’s personal website.

The article Why Mary Martin (SWP) Will Never Win the Washington Governor’s Race says it all. No one knows what Mary Martin’s issues are. No one knows what she looks like. She’s a member of the Socialist Workers Party, and that’s all the voters need to know.

Game’s up!

Let me explain what’s going on.

The corporate media and associated scum are playing two games. First, they want disenfranchised Americans to think they’re actually represented in government. So they recruit some dirtbags to pose as socialists. They’re actually examples of controlled opposition (aka fake leaders).

At the same time, they don’t want socialism to really catch on, so they recruit people like Mary Martin to play bizarre games. But it isn’t just Mary Martin; corporate interests have infiltrated most political parties, just as they’ve corrupted all our unions. (That reminds me of a photo I saw on Sawant’s City Council page that shows her posing with teachers carrying signs advertising the Seattle Education Association, which I can only describe as a parasite.)

So, please, don’t let people like Bernie Sanders, Kshama Sawant and Mary Martin sour you on socialism. In the broad sense of the term, socialism is cool. Only a fool would prefer free market capitalism to regulated capitalism, a so-called mixed economy or some economic system that somehow incorporates elements of socialism.

I am a socialist, and I would love to take on Sanders, Sawant and Martin to a debate. I’d take all three on at the same time.

Of course, they’d never accept my challenge. Will you?

Would you like to comment on my campaign, the election in general or some political issue that interests you? This is the place to do it.

The rules are pretty logical. I’ll handle obscenities and “hate speech” on a case by case basis. I place far more value on intelligence and intent.

If you’re interested in promoting reform, supporting the revolution or having an intelligent conversation, welcome aboard. If you’re a right-winger or a Seattle liberal who just wants to broadcast your stupidity, go away.

If you just want to insult me, apply for a job with the Seattle Times, the Seattle Weekly or The Stranger.

And don’t cry censorship if I don’t publish your comment. I can’t count the websites that have censored me and even banned me. This is MY forum, and I make the rules.
