American Horror Story

 I guess we're all going to be kept in "suspense" for a while longer. Why not? It's almost Halloween!
It's an American Horror Story!
Since when have election results been unacceptable?
Like, maybe the 2000 election with Bush and Gore and hanging chads?
I guess we can just deal with this horror of an election, it's the right time of year for it.
In the span of a week Julian Assange has had his wifi shut down. Obama told Trump to "stop whining" Michael Moore, who was all in with Bernie, sold out to Hillary with a movie about how "progressive" she is, called "Trumpland" Maybe next to Trump she is, but she's no where near Bernie Sanders, We all know how the election was rigged against him. If Trump says the election is rigged I mean why not? The whole thing is a joke.
For the life of me, I just have no where left to go from here. From Donald Trump saying he just grabs woman, and quite a few saying he did, to Bill Clinton's womanizing, the Podesta Files and Hillary's Goldman-Sachs speechifying. I can't wait for it to be over.
I mean then what's going to happen? Nothing is going to change with either of these New York players in office.
So here's what I do instead of watching politicians lie; I work on an Autumn drawing
I make my own soap, I made this batch for Halloween;

I've been a whole lot more creative this election season. It's way more productive and satisfying!

Hey, it's Columbus Day! I guess maybe there are still people out there who don't know that Columbus had no idea where he was, almost 400 years ago. He raped and pillaged his way around the new continent. He wasn't the first one here. But this country's so dysfunctional, "we can't go back" and correct the lies and propaganda that have gone on for almost 400 years. There's no damn reason to keep going on with this con of Columbus and how courageous or whatever he was supposed to be, He took slaves, he murdered, he was looking for gold. But hey, there's a Columbus Day sale and "a sucker born every minute."
This country was born on a con. We conned the Native Americans out of their land and we still do it today. Slave owners conned a country into a Declaration of Independence where, "all men are created equal" We still have made no reparations to the people we enslaved, we just move onto the next con job.
It took over two hundred more years for a Civil Rights Act to be made into law.
Is it any surprise, that we have one of the biggest con men of all time, Trump, trumping us all?
 I was thinking, what is it about the collective conscious of some Americans that identifies with him so much? One of the archetypes I thought about was this guy; Henry the VIII
Grab thee a Tic-Tac?
The only reason Trump hasn't chopped off someone's head, is
it's against the law, but there doesn't seem to be any laws for Donald Trump. I bet if he could, a couple of his wives might be headless, instead of mindless.
Trump told Hillary "You would be in jail"
Kind of like off with your head!
So who is Hillary? She's no Elizabeth the 1st, Maybe we need to go further back to the Greeks; perhaps Persephone. I think maybe, she's closer to Margaret Thatcher. Truly frightening, Trump  and Hillary, I would never wan't to be near either of them. They are people I feel deeply uncomfortable with. How comfortable was anyone with last night's debate?
 It was just another con job,
There are so many aspects of America, that just aren't working at all. People know this on an instinctual level. I believe this is why many people, look at Trump as some kind of messiah figure. It's all surface. The people who will vote for Trump, don't care that he's got a supply of Tic-Tacs, in case he see's a woman he wants to grab.
Since the Bernie-backdown, others are left with Hillary, so it's a choice of yet another dynastic Presidency. That is some choice.
It seems appropriate that yesterday, on a Sunday, a Federal Court came out with a decision that the Dakota Access pipeline will continue. So the corporate control of this country will continue, we will continue to abuse Native Americans, like we always have. Like Columbus did when he "discovered" America.
The narrative in the mainstream media is will you vote for Trump or Hillary? Email dumps or #Trumptape? I don't hear any reporting on the people who refuse to watch this spectacle and call it a "choice." Only 9% of Americans chose Trump and Clinton. 88 million Americans don't vote at all.
57.5% of Americans voted in the last presidential election.
If I actually voted, I feel like I would be voting for the Dakota Access Pipeline or voting for Trump to continue not paying taxes, even though I pay.
 Clinton will continue on with a Syrian War and droning other countries, maybe even a war with Russia. You might as well vote for the Pentagon. We know the government is way beyond giving a damn about Americans, let alone act like a functional government. I am not consenting to the American governments actions and that's why I am not voting, there's millions more like me who want nothing to do with accepting the unacceptable. It's a con.

Accidentally At War?

Two people, Hillary and Trump.
We are actually supposed to believe that is what this so-called election is about? Hillary's deleted emails and Trump's misogynist tape?
 Not even close.
Here's the set-up; on Friday, (why is it always on a Friday?) three things happened. First, was an email dump, then almost simultaneously, President Obama comes out with a seriously weird accusation against Russia, notice the details, he didn't name Putin, it's just "Russian officials". Then we have a #Trumptape, the media has known about for over a decade, this is released on Friday too.
Are we really supposed to believe this is random?
Because it's not.
The scariest thing isn't that moronic Trumptape, because anyone who didn't seriously know how Trump behaves is probably an entitled white male who thinks abusing women is a game. I've spent my entire life fighting off these clowns, it's nothing new. Another thing that's not new?
How about a war with Russia?
Like I have been predicting for years now, war is on the horizon, I don't need a magic 8 ball to tell me that either. If you are a defense contractor, or you own shares in Raytheon, Boeing, Blackwater, Lockheed, Northrup, Booze-Allen, you are part of the problem.
We have surrounded Russia with troops and arms and Georgia will be next, come winter. You have to ask the question, who profits from this? How many people have to die?
Clapper off!
First, lets take on Mr. Clapper, who is the fallguy for this Russian accusation. He is a known liar and told the Senate that the NSA did not collect information on millions of Americans, he committed
perjury and of course, was never prosecuted. On his say so, we aren't even supposed to question if
Clapper is lying about this 'Russian intelligence" accusation. How stupid do they think we are?
The irony of the NSA spying on people and leaders worldwide, then, Obama gets pissed off because someone might be doing it to us? Hey, here's an idea; let's mind our own business in America and none of this would be happening. It's ludicrous and insulting. Hillary Clinton carries water for Obama, this Russian b.s. won't stop once she gets into office.
Then there's Secretary of State, John Kerry, it boggles the mind what he says about Russia;"Russia and Syria Must Face War Crimes Investigations" Who is he kidding? Has he heard about the WMD lies that we told to invade Iraq, not to mention the U.S torture, flouting the Geneva Convention? We don't have a leg to stand on accusing any country of war crimes. So why do you think he's doing it? Another reason to go to war with Russia no matter how flimsy it is.
Why? Why now?
Could it be that the fear of having Trump in office during a time of war might scare people off Trump? Suddenly, there's a sexist tape released that could have been shown at any time, but yesterday, when those emails of Hillary's came out all of this sh*tstorm came about like some kind of cosmic accident. The oligarchy wants Hillary, they want a war, they don't care how they get it. Even if Trump got in there, he'd have to tow the line like Obama did when he got elected in 2008 and reneged on every promise he ever made. I bet that if things look bleak for Hillary, a very  disliked candidate, Obama will push the war button, it's been building up since the U.S. failed Ukraine coup.
None of this is an accident.
Hillary's emails and Donalds #Trumptape, it's a distraction, that's all. It's bread and circuses. But war with Russia is no joke. We are poking a bear. It's all the proof we need to know that the Oligarchy and the Pentagon are charging down a dangerous road no one in this country want's to go down. China will have Russia's back in this. The forces running this country don't care. We will be the one's caught in the cross hairs of this exercise in futility. But hey, if war is your thing, vote, then see what happens.

Kardashians and Clowns

Just Like the NSA
I can't be sure, but I think maybe people are catching up and catching on.
For a long time now, I have been blogging about a world at odds with itself. Mainly, my world in the United States.
I am trying to understand how we got to a place where clowns cause panic and Kim Kartrashian the icon of foolishness, is a clown people can't stop looking at.
 Kim Kartrashian gets robbed and it's a major headline. She plasters her selfies with millions of dollars in jewelry all over & shocker! She's robbed. It's front page news!
We have clowns, dangerous clowns, luring children God knows where, it's eerily familiar since we  had a serial killer in a clown costume, years ago. The mainstream media  is an epic fail reporting on trivia and abdicating their positions to investigate anything worth noticing because they have been bought and sold by corporations. So we get Kartrashians and clowns.
 Instead of Kartrashians and clowns, some people are taking a serious look at what's happening with the US election and how it devolved into the farce it is. There was an article in the Guardian (read here) that basically said what I have been saying for years. He writes that you can't rely on Hillary Clinton for fixing this country's problems, when President Obama has done nothing about the very things Hillary says she will fix. Furthermore, he takes away the tired old trope that Obama's got a belligerent congress-because he didn't at the start. He had a mandate from the American people to take us on a different course. What did we get? More of the same.
President Obama has done nothing to take on the bankers and is determined to ram the TPP deal down the throats of Americans. Then there's the truly awful Obamacare gift to the health insurance industry. We have a war of drones and a proxy war with Russia in Syria that looks to be getting weirder everyday. Why are we over there? What business is it of ours? Defense contractors.
 If President Obama has so much power and made so many promises, why didn't he follow through?
Politicians lie all the time and it's a given, what's weird is we take it for granted that they are liars and we still vote for these creatures. We act like there's some kind of choice. When you are presented with an entrenched politician like Hillary Clinton who is campaigning on some of the very things that Obama promised and never did and the other choice is a sexist blowhard, who's clearly unhinged. How is that a choice? It's like voting for Kim Kartrashian or a creepy psychopath clown.
The Pentagon paid a PR firm $540 million to produce propaganda for the Iraq War, that's just one instance we know about. Then we are nickeled and dimed over food stamps or Social Security we have paid into, but there's no problem spending money on endless war. We don't get a say in and we certainly don't vote for it.
Go ahead and keep voting. The clowns running for president get their marching orders from someone other than the American people. The Senate and Congress and corporations are in lockstep and voting won't change that. Michael Moore had an excellent explanation for the rise of Donald Trump. He said the American people want to use Donald Trump like a Molotov Cocktail and they are hoping he's going to blow up the government. But he won't. He won't be able too.
All we need is for the 100th monkey to figure out what's going on. If we can just get people to wake up and realize they are caught up in a system of propaganda, voting for hope and change, make America great again or we are stronger together with Hillary, is futile.
Wake up. People have to stop voting for some kind of messiah. Stop voting altogether. Stop being part of a system that is false. Why waste your energy? Driving from your stressful job, racing to take care of your family and pay your bills and you are supposed to find time to vote for liars? What if there's a hanging chad? What if your machine is rigged or hijacked by software? Seriously, hanging on to this civic duty of voting, while no politician feels any civic duty towards the people. I seriously can't believe how concerned people are about this election. Get real, be the 100th monkey and walk away. Then they will be out of a job and nothing they say or do will matter because no one will care. There will be no more Fox news or CIA/CNN, the war on "terror" will vanish, politicians are the actual terrorists, causing mayhem wherever they go.
No one we vote for is going to save us, we have to save ourselves.

Change We Can Believe In

I would like to know who President Obama is working for?
 He vetoed the 9/11 bill for the families of 9/11 terrorist attack to sue the Saudi government. For the first time lawmakers in the Senate over rode a Presidential veto. Mostly because they are scared out of their wits they will be voted out of their jobs so close to this election. At least for the families, they may be getting some justice, at last. Thanks to them and the pressure brought to bear for the 9/11 Commission and the release of the 28 pages, we know more. Maybe this is change we can believe in.
Think back to immediate days after 9/11, who was allowed to fly out of the country? Saudi's, that's who. Who are one of the biggest contributors of the Clintoon Foundation? (That Clintoon thing is a typo, but seems appropriate) That's right, Saudi's. Who's got lobbies fighting to vote down the 9/11 Bill in the Senate? Saudi's, isn't that disturbing, knowing a foreign country influences our affairs through bribery?
Maybe, just maybe, people will be suing the US for the torture, drone killings and black ops sites, for war crimes. Maybe just maybe, if war costs a whole lot more, the endless war economy will grind to a halt.
That is going to be  a big problem because the US is a war economy.
Which one of us, has ever voted for war?
Speaking of voting,
I guess people thought I would come out swinging about the debate. Did he need a tissue?

Breaking News!
As I was writing this blog, the House passed the 9/11 Bill. How has something managed to get done so quickly? For years this country has been stagnant and ineffective, this is an historic day. I hope the families of those who died in 9/11 get what they need, maybe even some closure. I can only hope that the Bush's and Clinton's friends, get what's coming to them, the Bush's, Rumsfeld, Cheney, the lot of them are hauled into court some day soon for what they've done.

Poisoning The Well

You just can't make this stuff up.
Wells Fargo CEO testified before congress this week, for fraud. Thousands of credit card accounts were opened, fraudulently. Elizabeth Warren told Wells Fargo CEO Stumpf to resign. Will he? Nope.
Then there's the Queen of the EpiPen, Mylan CEO Heather Bresch, jacking up the price 500% of a life saving shot, but it's just business.

Another shooting in North Carolina, by a cop and now there's more protests, one protester is dead.
I doubt anything will happen to the cop, Just like these CEO's, it's just business.
There was a shooting at a mall in Washington State, so that's 5 more people who have died.
Just another mass shooting in this Bipolar country I live in.
Monday night we are going to be treated to a display of candidates running for president, no one seems to want or like. What kind of choice is that?  After praying and begging God to smite Donald Trump, Ted Cruz decides he's all in with Trump now. The only person who cares about what Cruz is doing is Cruz,
Meanwhile, back in Ocean County where I live, we have been treated to the news that the water that flows through our taps has Chromium 6 in it and it's way over California's safety standards and best of all I get to pay $148 a quarter for poison I can't drink.
Does anyone think that Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton gives a damn about clean drinking water in New Jersey? I think of what the people in Flint, Michigan are still dealing with and all I can come up with is a big NO. With a basic problem like clean drinking water for Americans, no candidate thinks is an issue, why the hell would you vote for either of them? They don't care! It's not an accident, poisoning a water supply is a tactic used since Roman times, to diminish an opponents strength.
Look at the map, it is not a regional problem it's the entire country!
I was at my friends house the other night, the husband likes Trump, but his wife doesn't like either candidate, she doesn't know who to vote for. She say's if she doesn't vote, then she can't complain.
Oh really? I want to see that rule, is it a law? Where does this idea come from? When you are presented with a "choice" that is picking which poison, well, I've got enough in my local water supply, no need to cast a vote.
When you see corruption at every level of politics and corporate behavior that is criminal with no accountability. Police shooting unarmed people and crazy people who have guns shooting up public places, then, when you need to take an aspirin for the headache you've got. you can't even get a glass of water because it's polluted.
 Is anyone even seriously questioning exactly what Trump or Hillary will do to fix any of these problems? Because it's not going to happen. These people mix in the same social circle, think they are different? They aren't! They will be serving the same master. They certainly do not care about you or me in Nowheresville, USA.

Is Nothing Sacred?

I have been trying to unravel the disgraceful actions of the security "service" that attacked Native Americans, on their own land. This land was stripped from them in 1958, without their permission, when the Army Corp of Engineers built dams flooding hundreds of thousands of acres of their land. The Army Corp of Engineers are at it again, it helped to build a pipeline that will be owned by ETP, Energy Transfer Partners. The security firm ETP hired, is called G4S. They have a history of abuse, death and mayhem going back decades. Our tax dollars are funding this outrage, with the Army Corp of Engineers.
 First, lets get into a little about Energy Transfer Partners, you know who owns them? John Major's & Tony Blair's Carlyle Group. (read SEC filing here.) It never ceases to amaze me, how this company has it's tentacles everywhere. Also, ETP has donated over $500,000 to the Republican Party. For a more detailed amount of bribes from ETP to the government read here.
What really got me was the so called, "security" dressed in t-shirts and baseball hats like they were having a casual day out walking their dogs, dogs that attack people. Also, don't forget the pepper spray. G4S, used to be a company based in Florida called Wackenhut, founded by former FBI Agents ("if you want a dirty job done, call Wackenhut"), it was bought by a Danish firm and now, it's worldwide mercenary "security" force with a horrendous reputation for abuse.
G4S was stripped of it's contract for the 2012 summer Olympics, it has a litany of inappropriate, violent behavior sometimes with deadly results. They have been used from the West Bank, to Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan, now here they are harassing Native Americans. Even Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation had to pull their money out of this notorious company. So now they are here wreaking havoc on our indigenous population.
The government is using eminent domain to force landowners to give up their land for a pipeline no one seems to want. Though President Obama visited the Sioux Reservation in 2014, he is strangely silent about what is occurring now. Bulldozers came through and plowed over sacred burial sites (did they not see Poltergeist?) in an attempt to destroy any evidence that would make it harder for the pipeline to be built and more difficult for Native Americans to prove their ancestors were buried there, They basically defiled a cemetery, imagine if your relatives were there. This is what we do and have done for hundreds of years, it's a damn disgrace, all for oil. Wars, we have fought for over a decade,  now once again, we are making war on the original people who were here long before us.
So, where is the Bureau For Indian Affairs in all this? Aren't they supposed to be protecting Native Americans?
 For a long time, no one paid much attention to reservations, until it was found out there were valuable metal or oil resources on it, then corporate eminent domain shuts down and shuts out Native Americans.
If you would like to help the Sioux Nation;
