“The transgression or rupture of the conventional order produces monsters and monstrosities.” Jean Clair~Hubris~In French
Of Monsters and Mere Mortals
Today I’m going to go off a bit on a tangent and link two wildly disparate items to show what kind of monstrosities we have in the highest executive chair — the Presidency. Yes monsters. One is a past president and his nasty wife, and the other is none other than Donald Trump whose reckless killing of foreign officials may have started a huge war, maybe even the biggest ever. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed on the other side when they showed great restraint and showed just how well they could defend themselves by a limited attack on US bases in Iraq with some casualties but no deaths of Americans.
Among other items today we have the Superbowl winners, the KC Chiefs. My interest in football decreases greatly if I’m not drinking. The only thing I watched was most of the halftime show that I happened to catch when I was switching from reading to finding a movie to watch as I ate dinner. A stroke of luck caught me watching J Lopez performing her pop performance worthy of any spectacle by any act in the world. I was entertained for a few minutes while it was on my TV. If there’s one thing the US corporate world does well is put on productions worthy of the world stage. ‘Nuff said.
This morning there were speculations on the Iowa caucuses. It’s obvious to anyone that the fix is in against Bernie Sanders. As he gains in popularity the ‘establishment’ gets more nervous and lets loose the hit-people in the corporate(MSM) media to relentlessly attack him directly, misconstrue his message, give misleading meanings to his worthy attempt to better most American lives. His wanting to getting a bit of social democracy back after close to fifty years of the neo-liberalism nightmare of unregulated and untaxed capitalism is viewed as a bad thing among ‘establishment’ members, ones that want everything to work entirely in their favor. The rot of over fifty years of ‘establishment’, or bourgeois, rule has left many Americans scrambling just to survive in the world as job security and decent wages fade into the sunset. Sanders and a few other social democrats in Congress have lit a fuse and I hope it’s allowed to ignite a real movement towards a sustainable future. I’ll see tomorrow how this plays out.
Back in January our bone-headed president allowed an attack to occur that took out an Iranian general and an Iraqi high official by a drone strike killing them and others in their entourage on Iraqi soil. Yes, an illegal killing that is an act of war that could have started a real war with Iran. Cooler heads prevailed with the Iranians by showing great restraint by not actually killing US personnel stationed in Iraq. They launched missiles with great precision striking US military bases in Iraq. They were warned first thus reducing causalities. The results of these strikes were played down on the MSM reports. I firmly believe that Iran has the capability to destroy their enemies in the Middle East if they wanted to. I’ve also noticed the almost complete silence in the MSM since the attacks were made public as to rhetoric against those dastardly Iranians. In essence there was a staring contest and the US blinked. A war was avoided.
I found an excellent item by someone much more in tune with the ongoing story on the Iranian ‘conflict’. Elijah J Magnier seems to be a highly credible source for ‘real’ news especially when it comes to Empire activity semi-hidden and unreported in the MSM. His story about the war avoided by the Iranians is telling on how arrogant the Pentagon is in assessing its enemies. Recall that a supposed untouchable US drone was shot down over Iran a year or so ago. there were ruffled feathers implied in the news stories. Nothing in the larger outlets but it was reported. There was the usual outrage, totally unfounded because the drone was in Iranian airspace after all, but the ‘tell’ was that it was at an extreme altitude supposedly higher than the usual missiles could reach. The Iranians could get the juicy details of US technology used aboard the drone. Tit for tat as they say.
I’ve said this before; the US won’t be able to win a war against Iran unless its willing to sacrifice the world economy, up to several million lives, and the ire of the world for the damage to world commerce including a financial depression that might even tank capitalism itself. Quite a burden I’d say for Trump and team to escape with their hides if such was allowed to transpire. So here’s the link: \/ The date on the item is 02–01–20 in US terminology

The other juicy tidbit today concerns Bill Clinton, his consort Hillary, and my state of new Mexico. Yes, the dead pedophile Jeffry Epstein, and his legacy will be hard to live down for decades to come. I wrote a fictional story about a speculation that’s the lead story on my homepage. I still believe there exists files of videos of the world’s most powerful men in very compromised situations with young underage girls on a jetliner dubbed “The Lolita Express” in the MSM discourses. I speculate that the tiff with the Royalty in the UK and of Prince Harry’s move is due to Epstein’s files. Yes even I succumb to some lascivious gossip on the powerful when they get exposed for the creeps that they are. This just concerns a tabloid from the UK and Clinton’s visits to the Ranch like compound in northern New Mexico, my home state that I’ve resided in since I was five back in ’59. Ex Governor Bill Richardson was also rubbing elbows with Epstein back in the day. He lost a high level cabinet position in the Obama regime due to some controversy in his past. Yeah, the indiscretions of the powerful are just as enticing as the stories portrayed on the historical TV shows such as Versailles or The Borgias. The link: \/

So the start of the ‘20’s may be just as roaring as the iconic ‘20’s of the last century was right before the big crash of ’29. Will history repeat itself? We have the full force of spectacle 21st century style with the election in the fall. We have the impeachment debacle that will fizzle worse than the spectacular Mueller investigations. Want Trump out? Run Bernie, he’ll win in a landslide. Biden is a sure bet to lose. As long as these ridiculous tussles between different factions of our ruling classes are allowed by ‘the people’ of the US and the following of their ‘grand narrative’ by the masses to keep them in the dark as to the actual workings of the government and big business, we’ll continue to get the likes of Trump and co. So…wake the fuck up folks!! I’m guessing my readers are already ‘woke’, but you get my drift anyway.
Sometimes my dark messages aren’t received very well by those in their younger years with all of their faculties. I have to be careful with my new therapist, she’s a half generation younger than I. And maybe I’m harsh in my outlook but it does come from a decent place. I would like for folks to be aware that things aren’t near as Disneylandy as painted by “Good Morning America” or the “Today Show”. Being forewarned of an upcoming possible event is the best way to be prepared for the worst and if it doesn’t happen you will still gain strength from being proactive in your planning for the future. I report on my feelings on matters of concern for the 21st century, postmodern, neo-liberal, nightmare that’s called society. Capitalist society. And, by the way, the capitalists are winning the war over us. The world? We’ll see in the near future if exploitation subsides enough to allow the survival of our species and all the other wonderful lifeforms we all know and love. Peace,the Ol’ Hippy
