ONE STATE HOUSE AWAY – Once In A Lifetime

ccus~Pay Attention! 
Republicans are one state legislature away from acquiring the legal authority to call a new constitutional convention under Article V of the Constitution

.
.
33 = the number of state legislatures the Republican Party has complete control over.

34 = the number of state legislatures required to call for a new constitutional convention under Article V of the Constitution.

Why isn’t this big hugely gigantically bigly humongous news broadcast everywhere and why is it that  every citizen in the US is not  aware? Guess!

The last constitutional convention was held in Philadelphia on May 14, 1787.

Donald J. Trump – The Genius

Part I.
Bernie Sander, 45th President of these United States of America.
091517-bs-dnc
Oops! Sorry, that’s taking place in the parallel universe.

First, I want to take a giant step back to 2015, when Bernie Sanders announced his bid to run for President of the United States.

Just before Bernie jumped in and Trump made his way down the escalator there was a real feeling growing on the left that this could be the year of a solid third party Populist run and win.  Even the media was going on the year before how this could be the end of the two party system.  After all, Obama proved to be a shill for Wall Street, a War Monger, not to mention the expanding NSA under his regime, record lock up of whistle-blowers by all presidents combined, and the end of the 4th Amendment via his signing of the NDAA.  The energy for a real 3rd party nominee was palpable, ‘Jill Stein or better!’sky’s the limit.  And though the campaign season seemed a long way off you just felt progressives were going to come together and really turn this into a Green year. This was it, a real third party candidate would step forward because between Clinton and Bush, “Wars & Banks Я Us!” there was absolutely no difference.

Then in May Bernie jumped into the race and that literally pulled the rug out from under a strong Green Party run. Suffice it to say, people who were on top of the issues were super pissed, they felt lost, almost betrayer, not because of Bernie’s decision to run, but that he decided to run as a Democrat.

Bernie’s appeal at the time was also pretty low among many progressives, not because of his age, but because of this town hall video – [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vf2cCdgwgoM ]

I’m sure many remember this.

soapboxEven though Bernie was still better than most democrats, even those who leaned left, he had this somewhat hidden and convoluted hard line pro-Israel narrative going on. He was wishy-washy on the settlements, looked the other way over the abuse of Palestinians, he never mentioned Israel’s rush towards an Apartheid state with all the atrocities, the abusive border crossings and patrols in Gaza. Further, even though he had this wise and great history of standing against the war, he voted to fund them all; wars can’t happen without money, not to mention the deals he made with Lockheed Martin in his home state of Vermont. Lastly, for all his left leaning and pro-justice views on the House and Senate Floors Bernie, as an Independent and the lone voice of the far liberal left had a history of building no more than a soapbox to stand on.

Progressives were suspicious, letting a life long Independent Bernie run as a Democrat made people think this might be a ruse by the war mongering banker bought and sold DNC now interjecting their will in order to take the wind out of the Green Party sails and rob them of their numbers. ‘Offer them Bernie and then we’ll pull in all the anti-war, anti-big-banks, anti-etceteras… we lost, all those who once hastened Obama to the front of the line and into the white house back in to the Democratic Party they left over the endless disappointments of his policies. Yat ah ahhh!’

No well informed and thinking progressive for a minute believed the DNC would let Bernie win.

Of course, in the end we were correct.

However, the big mistake the DNC made is they thought just reeling Bernie in was enough. His platform, though sketchy to most, didn’t matter, it was apparently good-nuff and as history now recalls his campaign took off and skyrocketed by October.  As they say, To The Moon! Doge! Even Bernie was amazed.

bernie-bird

That, was the energy we knew was out there and apparently so did the DNC.

The DNC thought, ‘now that Bernie has brought the lambs back into the fold we have to get rid of Bernie.’

And they did.

But Karma’s a bitch and the way the DNC went about cheating Bernie and his voters destroyed the DNC instead. So yeah, there’s an up side to everything. The DNC is now The RIP.

Since then, as you know,  Trump won, and that was way better than Jeb and of course way better than Hillary.

Why?

No More Bush, No More Clinton, a Trump win will finally make it clear to all, the banks own the two parties, the more uncertain question was, do they also own the outside candidate? Just how f#$%ed are we? Let’s measure.

Looking at the Trump Administration the answer seems simple, but is it?

Maybe Trump is a genius (don’t laugh) or is he just another corporate owned shill?

We are about to find out.

Part II.
The art of trickle down political spacing.

So, is Trump a genius?

Did Donald John Trump hire all these diabolical corporate professional who mercilessly worked the system for their own yugely-bigly financial gain in order to make these scoundrels dismantle the whole rotten system? (Oh, what a movie that would make, eh?).

If so, then YES, it would be affirmative, he would be a genius!

The only question then is how much will Trump get done and if he will be above board or slick and secretive like Obama and Clinton?

If he choses the latter, if he’s pulled the wool over the eyes of the American People, like Obama and Bush did, this time on the Independents; the swingers, then there are few options left. You can leave, secede or pray for a meteor to hit the planet cause at that point, the people who keep the system running; until replaced by robots, are working for a zero sum gain, or unless you get off the grid and find your inner Amish you could live right well off the land, newcomer.

Regardless, the working class is going to figure all this out faster than you might think. Those making bank, the upper middle class; ze bourgeoisie, will find themselves addicted to watching Dr. Zhivago or hoping for a Brave New World.

Right now, each day that goes by it looks as if Trump is less and less of a genius, though on some things he is able to cover his tracks, a dangling carrot here, a dangling carrot there.

His hard core supporters of course are blind to his actions and if he does lean away from the promised original task, ruffling their feather’s a bit, they are willing to cut him a break and qualify any one specific action with, “He’s trying to maintain the peace working for ALL Americans, what a guy!”

Some think it’s enough that he stop immigration from terrorist nations, (today’s results look very selective), put up the wall, bring jobs back and cut taxes. Those people say in the end Trump won’t be great, but above mediocre.

Personally, right now, I’m trying to decide how I feel about long beards, brims, bonnets and buggies.

If I think of anything else I’ll add it as we continue over his first 100 days to test this hypothesis,  Is Trump a Genius?

.
Great quote by Lee Fang, who I still think is a bit of a shill for the DNC, and how would he make a living if not for the endless conflicts he writes about? I wonder…  but maybe he’s waking up, a little? – “To win in the midterm elections all GOP has to do is deploy right wing podcasters & message board trolls to campuses, left easily distracted”

 

I don’t think Trump is Hitler, nor do I believe he will become Hitler or Stalin for that matter- but the two parties have acted like Hitler and Stalin for decades – just count the global dead by their corporate deeds, but there is a 4th Reich and a new Stalinism taking hold, where this is happening and by who, shouldn’t be too hard to figure out.

Presidential Election 2016 – Winner

if you don’t understand this, you make too much money.

In the end, which isn’t played in this clip, Moore still backs Clinton – for all the wrong reasons.

Still, he’s right about one thing, if she wins and can’t bridge the gap – which for the life of me I don’t see how she could, it’s not in her character or make up – the country is on the path to over. Trump voters will not go gentle into that good night.

The Hostile Takeover of Vaping
This whole FDA things is how big tobacco and perhaps even big pharma take over the vaping industry. They couldn’t win in the free market so why not use a government agency full of their cronies to get the job done?

How many know that Burt’s Bees is owned by Clorox now?

That Annies Homegrown foods is owned by General Mills?

Did you know the guy in charge of the FDA, Michael Taylor, previous job was a VP at Monsanto?

And that’s just a small example of foods, we know that this method of taking over a business is the norm in the tech industry.

Think about it – what’s $100 Million in regulations to big tobacco for a $6 Billion business now that’s projected to hit $15B by 2020?

This isn’t about the health of an industry or the people who use the products – this is a hostile takeover of vaping!

Thoughts?

The Most Hated Man In America – And I Think He’s Great!

Martin Shkreli is the most hated man misunderstood man in America and I think he’s great!

shkreli

“It is a crime for any citizen to sink away from controversy” -Solon

Martin Shkreli, draws a lot of vitriol once people recognize who he is.
When I first heard about this guy and the drug his firm picked up, developed and inflated over 500% my ears perked up and I thought, ‘here we go again, another Alessio Rastani looking to cash in on the misery of others. “Free Market Capitalism” at its worst USA! USA! USA!

However, since this story first made headlines last summer [2015] and as it has unfolded I’ve had a change of heart.

I’m convinced now not only is this man an artist, what he is doing, through his actions, is exposing the dirty underbelly of not only big pharma, but the whole health care industry from big insurance, to hospitals, to medical labs, staff and yes, Congress. We are being “edu-tained.”

It’s amazing how much hate has been thrusted upon one man when it is the whole health care system that is really rotten to the core.

First, let’s take a little step back into the past, for instance the marketing agreements given to big pharma by Congress for R&D, most of which is done at the university level, at tax payer expense. Yes, you Joe Taxpaying Public pay for all the years of research and development, all those meticulous and endless experiments and a good number of clinicals well before any drug is handed over to big pharma.

For example, let’s take one drug in particular, Bristol Myer Squibb’s (BMS) Taxol, this drug; a derivative of the yew tree, was developed at the University of Florida. BMS secured the patent to a drug that works to cure ovarian cancer.

Back in 2000 if a doctor recommended this drug to a woman with ovarian cancer the cost would run $2,300 per treatment, with a minimum of at least 6 treatments (roughly $14k), and after reevaluation perhaps another 6 or more treatments could be required – cancer is unpredictable. If you’re an older woman on a fixed income of say $20k a year, with no insurance, how do you afford that? Simple, you don’t, you suffer from the disease and die.

Was there any outrage by the public over the price of the life saving drug Taxol like there was over Martin Shkreli drug Daraprim? Absolutely none. It wasn’t even reported by the corporate owned media.

Martin Shkreli has done us all a tremendous service – he simply brought to the forefront, as a lone wolf, what big pharma does every day, treat us like fodder, and the ones with the most money, suffer less, live longer and better.

Now, there’s one thing the media hasn’t told us about Martin Shkreli, they didn’t tell anyone that those who need his drug, those who can’t afford the treatments will receive the drug upon request for free, yes, FREE. That he himself will bend over backwards to make sure those who can ill-afford the needed treatment receive what is required. Further, more of the profits from his drugs have gone into developing and producing rare drugs big pharma doesn’t want to bother with because they are rare and cause an undervalue to their profit margins.

The MSM demonizes this man simply for ad-revenue, and all the vilification and years of anger we feel towards big pharma is directed at one individual, when in reality it is the large corporations that are not only stealing our tax payer University R&D dollars, but taking what we give to each other as part of the common good and acting mostly as the middle-man selling it back to us for inflated prices, causing endless suffering and the death of our loved ones.

In a way, we do this to ourselves because we are unaware of their trickery and overwhelmed with just making ends meet. The bottom line is we have the power to understand the process and change it if we want, but it’s not a priority because we can’t seem to take the time. Maybe that will change. Martin’s instillation art, which is his life, is making people think, and trust me, it’s a good thing. Martin is really a natural born, modern teacher. Something we are just beginning to get a grip on.

This is why I want to say thank you to Martin Shkreli for being so brave by bringing this topic forward. I hope he continues running circles around the media holding this concern up high for all to see, at least until people make the connection that it is not one man holding health care hostage, but these large corporations holding us prisoners for their own deep and greedy pockets and our own ignorance.

I ask that he let us forget his charity, at least a little while longer, before his true humanity rises like cream to the top.

Maybe this time the American People will see who the daemons really are – Big Pharma, Big Medical, Big Media and Congress. Now that you know, what will you do?

In these times, buy accident or design, Martin Shkreli is a hero.

War Profiteers – END THEM

profits“A war profiteer is any person or organization that profits from warfare or by selling weapons and other goods to parties at war.”

war profiteering

“I don’t want to see a single war millionaire created in the United States as a result of this world disaster.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt, May 22, 1940.

I purpose a Bill by Congress and ask for a Presidential Executive Order that until the War On Terror is over no US company or US citizen profit a single penny from the weapons used in these wars. That any US citizen or US company that does so will be tried for treason. That any country selling weapons to the US, to a terrorist or terrorist nation for profit will be in turn regarded as a terrorist or a terrorist nation suffering immediate sanctions and becoming an enemy of the United States or America.

Further, I ask every individual, company and organization to make it a priority, to pressure every presidential candidate to declare that they will put an end to the profiteering from the sales of weapons; particularly WMDs, until they and Congress finally end the War On Terror.

It is my contention that these wars will never come to a close as long as there are profits to be made. I believe the last 14 years have proven this to be true.

To profit off of war is not only immoral it is one of the greatest evils any civilized nation can put upon its people and the world.  Until such actions are in place anything that is good and civilized will be lost.

“If any State in the Union will declare that it prefers separation with the first alternative, to a continuance in union without it, I have no hesitation in saying, ‘let us separate’. I would rather the States should withdraw, which are for unlimited commerce and war, and confederate with those alone which are for peace and agriculture.” -Thomas Jefferson
