Never forget…what NYC firefighters heard and saw on 9-11-01

I’ve waited ’til today to post this, out of respect for those families who lost innocent loved ones on September 11th, 2001. Negligence on the part of Fed-Gov agencies (from the foot-soldiers/agents up to and including their bureaucratic handlers & Admins) stripped those families of countless lifetimes of memories; stripped the living children of their parents; stripped the unborn (and now, never-to-be born) of the same relationships.

We will never know the horrors experienced by the innocents that day, in those planes and in those buildings. That alone should haunt the above noted incompetent (or thoroughly evil and corrupt) Bureaucrats. But barring a sudden attack of conscience on the part of a few whose “pay grade” was sufficient to actually have been in-the-know, we will likely never know – in our lifetimes at least – all that truly occurred that day. And considering how often such politicians and political-operatives feel such compunction, it is safe to say our posterity may be forever in the dark. It is easier for The Powerful that way. [Just saw this in my Facebook feed.]

That way we outside-the-loopers are left bantering back and forth until we are burnt out…or until we forget, because Life (or the next Dot-Gov inspired tragedy) overshadows it. When we do recall and discuss-amongst-ourselves, we’re the so called nutjobs…all for desperately trying to put disparate facts together in a “sensical” fashion. We become the Mouthpiece-media’s temporary darlings, their Conspiracy Theorists, if we dare question the narrative they are called upon (or willingly choose?) to feed us.

But I know Reichstag fires happen “over there” and Pearl Harbors happen closer to home….so don’t even try the Nut job on me.

“America” flawed, just like the actual country

Posted the following just now on an old Hollywood Reporter piece, but as I probably won’t take the time to write a true essay on what I thought about the film (we went to it yesterday) this will have to suffice (I may add more thoughts below the quotes):

Does Dinesh D’Souza’s new film have flaws? Sure. But what “mainstream” Hollywood docu-drama doesn’t? What “America” does (and I wish it’s had done it more forcefully) is point out the many hypocrisies of the country’s leftists: lies in revered history book by Zinn; feigned or actual ignorance of Native American warfare on their own kind(s) as well as history of Columbus by an outspoken Native American activist; ludicrousness of N.A. “reparations” for now-developed land (Manhattan) vs. purchase of raw land; Mexicans pining for and illegally “resettling” former Mex-territory that was actually pad for by US; etc. Yes, the U.S.A.: broke treaties w/ and horribly mistreated/rounded-up N.A. (but NOT ME); condoned black African slavery (incl. 1000’s of BLACK slave owners!) & white-Irish slavery (but NOT ME); has 100’s of military (industrially-complex) set-ups around the globe (but NOT ME or not by my voluntary support). I will NOT make reparations for crimes I did not commit. I’m thankful for the film, America, if for no other reason than pointing out some of these things.

Oh, and the film’s point about Slaves-having-fruits-of-their-labor-STOLEN, so having no incentive to work hard or well? Excellent, BUT…it’s no longer an excuse for black-poverty today. D’Souza’s film segment on the pretty much forgotten (she got a stamp in 1998 (http://tinyurl.com/ojfup5k)) history of the FIRST $millionaire African-American WOMAN (Madam C.J. Walker) just after the turn of the 20th century? PRICELESS!

The film certainly comes across as Rah! Rah! A-‘mer-i-‘cah, but seriously, watch that trailer; see how D’Souza will give screen time to his ideological opponents (name-callers might say, “America-bashers”). Do leftist filmsters do the same? No. Even close? No, again.

And in the linked trailer, listen to Noam Chomsky @ 1:40 first claim how “destructive” so-called Capitalism is (in reality it’s politically-connected/coerced/beleaguered CRAP-italism). Chomp-ski follows it up by suggesting this business-model is even MORE destructive than “centralized Federal Power” (is he so stupid he doesn’t hear himself; that Fed-gov power is “what” always did, and continues to, wage those foreign wars of oppression!). Best of all he then suggests these evil CRAPitalists be “constrained in some way!” OMG. He did a flip-flop in about 5 seconds. Does he NOT GET that this means Fed-gov must aggress again, against civilians at home; must use GUNS or the threat of guns-plus-imprisonment to keep businesses in line.

[Just how stupid – or inconsistent – do you have to be to be REVERED by the political Left (sorry, rhetorical question)?]

My wishes for the film were numerous.

  1. I wish I had the soundtrack; it is 5-star.
  2. I wish the generic bashers and haters of Dinesh D’Souza would put their money/time/effort/talents (or don’t they have any?) to “better” use than he has; show him up, you cowards, if you feel “America” (the film and/or the country) is really so bad.
  3. I wish D’S had revealed more about his arrest and compared it to Leftist-Democrat campaign donators (or cabinet members)-who-done-(IRS)wrongs yet skated with handslaps or less.
  4. I wish he wasn’t so forgiving of the USA’s actions of late in Iraq & Afganistan;
  5. I wish that he’d not chosen a captured/tortured Vietnam vet who’d been a FIGHTER PILOT…to make the case that (I paraphrase) “we were over in South Vietnam to HELP them stand on their own.” An engineer or infantry officer might have been believable making THAT case.
  6. I wish, when discussing SLAVERY, he’d made it more atrocious that 3/4’s of a MILLION Americans (military draftees and civilians) had to perish for “slavery to end.” Supposedly. Why not political sanctions against trade-with-the-South? Oh, that’s right, most Fed-gov INCOME came from there.
  7. I wish instead of a generic face-behind-bars illustration, D’S had had the guts to show Slavery RIGHT NOW where it’s happening: in Muslim countries, in Chinese factories, etc.

There has always been Conquest; there has always been Slavery. America does not hide from it’s past, but around the world today there is no one whose “ancestors” haven’t done some sort of heinous wrong. If all are guilty, all are potential decendents-of-victims so where does that leave the Reparations People? In a globe-sized circle of people with their hands out.

The most Guilt-Ridden will pay. The most easily provoked to that guilt it seems are White Americans of European descent. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence we are the most charitable with our personal monies and as a country, the most generous with our handouts.

RIP. May your decendants learn the truth

People, quit swallowing the oft repeated versions of things. "Repeat a lie often enough..." and all.

At least read the rest of this overview of  Stinnet’s book at Amazon:

From Publishers Weekly

Historians have long debated whether President Roosevelt had advance knowledge of Japan’s December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor. Using documents pried loose through the Freedom of Information Act during 17 years of research, Stinnett provides overwhelming evidence that FDR and his top advisers knew that Japanese warships were heading toward Hawaii. The heart of his argument is even more inflammatory: Stinnett argues that FDR, who desired to sway public opinion in support of U.S. entry into WWII, instigated a policy intended to provoke a Japanese attack. The plan was outlined in a U.S. Naval Intelligence secret strategy memo of October 1940; Roosevelt immediately began implementing its eight steps (which included deploying U.S. warships in Japanese territorial waters and imposing a total embargo intended to strangle Japan’s economy), all of which, according to Stinnett, climaxed in the Japanese attack. (cont. on Amazon, here)

I first became aware of the unconscionable lies in the standard public-school version of the Pearl Harbor attacks as a home school instructor: using Richard Maybury’s (aka “Uncle Eric”) easy to read “World War II: the rest of the story and how it affects you.” (Yes, trolls, it was also easy to believe, having read/fact-checked/and studied several of the same author’s other student-directed books on Economics, Law, World War I, and his “1000 Year War in the Mideast.”)

America, there’s no excuse to continue your blind devotion to the war-mongering F.D.R. He caused harm to my father (may he rest-in-peace) and 100,000’s more simply by participating & surviving. But Roosevelt also killed millions of our forefathers (and aided in the deaths of many other foreigners in those at-war lands) by maneuvering the U.S.A. into that pet war of his.

May FDR Rot-In-Pain for this and all the other dirty deeds he no doubt did with his near-absolute three-term presidential power.

Red, White, and Blue blindness

(photo: 19 Dec 1975) Once I was young, and beautiful (in a geeky sort of way), and way too trusting…

The next “greatest generation” could be home schooled Americans…if enough of them take a particular flavor of “red pill,” rather than the Red, White, and Blue one that too many seem to continue to swallow wholeheartedly.

While it’s terrific that home-schoolers in Texas anyway, say, “adios” to the public/government school system, it’s also sad they get locked into another one just as harmful: “my country, right or wrong.” For all the historical materials available, we still manage to raise teens eager to run off in service of the behemoth former President (and retired 5-star WWII Army general) Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about: “The Military-Industrial Complex.” But why?

Part of the answer may be due to the large numbers of Christian home-schoolers. Fine people, for the most part, who likely believe that the military is a good and necessary thing on the whole. Who wouldn’t come to this view by studying (and then certainly teaching) the founding of the United States? They see George Washington at the lead of a military put to noble use: that of securing (and then maintaining) the freedom of the original thirteen colonies’ inhabitants. They’ve heard him give credit to the “Almighty Being who rules over the Universe” and look forward to the “propitious smiles of Heaven” (1st inaugural address; April 30,1789) which await the nation that obeys heaven’s “eternal rules of order and right.”

But home-school parents: go further; use alternative texts and see how things changed After George. Here’s a book series that’s an easy cure for Red, White, and Blue blindness. The author is Richard Maybury and he writes easy-to-digest books, with short, concise chapters in the form of letters from an uncle to his nephew. Maybury is masterful at taking big concepts and cutting them down to size.

Have no fear. After reading this set of (mostly slim-) volumes his easy to picture (and recall) examples will make teaching fiat-currency and inflation; “natural/common law” versus “manmade (government) law;” and political corruption (including America’s foreign military entanglements from WWI, II, and the still ongoing “Thousand Year War in the Middle East”) second nature.

The truth about the bombing of Pearl Harbor set me free in the spring of 2010, while teaching Maybury’s, “World War II: The Rest of the Story and How it Affects You.” From that point onwards I knew if a president (Saint Franklin) and his people could lie to the country and proceed to feed millions of American men into his own personal War Machine, what wouldn’t an American president and his/her people be capable of lying about or covering up?

Answer: Nothing.

On this Veteran’s Day you need to know only one thing about your government and its lackeys. If their lips are moving they are probably lying. There is no glory or promotion or advantage of any kind for even a low-level bureaucrat in TELLING the TRUTH. Would the Military-man (or woman) recruiter, seeking warm bodies to fill their red, white, and blue pawn-quota, be any different?

The post (and linked articles) that got me thinking on this today is here.
