  • “McCulloch makes no apology for having her testify and apparently knew she was going to lie in a manner uniquely favorable to Wilson.”

    That is the crux of the entire issue and why there is so much outrage. This suppose officer of the court openly admits that he perverted the process. The sheer audacity of admitting a crime like this only shows how comfortable McMulloch feels that there will be no consequences for his actions.
    This is why people protest, this is why people riot. When the system itself offers no real avenue of redress of grievances.

  • Thanks Mason,
    It seems that the perjury of Witness 40 is and McCulloch’s willful deceit is catching on the MSM

    I have been frequenting this site for some years now and have notice that a key concept is finally sinking through and that is police brutality, NSA spying, CIA torture, Finance revelations are interconnected.

    I wrote this almost two years ago:

    “The recent NSA revelations are like the revelations of the TSA. Many are saying how horrible and corrupt these systems are but yet they remain in place. No one with real power is really asking to dismantle them.
    If there are those that are so concerned about civil rights, in particular 4th amendment violations, you can begin protesting the tactics used by local law enforcement in your community. Join hands with your local minority communities who are fighting these injustices on a daily basis. “Stop and Frisk” and racial profiling tactics wouldn’t exist if the “white” majority did not believe they were exempt from these tactics.
    The NSA revelations prove only that eventually we all become suspects if the elites deem it so.”
    When the times become desperate enough, “white privilege” will not protect the poor underclass of any color. However “white privilege” has allowed this destructive system to limp along. The Occupy movement was the outcome of a mass of upper white middle class persons suddenly finding out the system does not even guaranty them prosperity. Prior to the Occupy movement, unemployment for minorities has always been in the double digits for over 20 years and not a peep from white liberal America. Then the second great Depression began in 2007 and all of sudden now white liberal America is now talking about the corporate oligarchy and the evils of capitalism.
    “First they came…” poem by Niemoller is truly the essence of “white privilege” in America. An entire swath of the American citizenry intellectualizes the brutality and cruelty that is done in the Homeland and abroad because at the moment they are benefitting from that system. If people want to change the world for the better they must begin in their own communities and cities and break down the false barriers put in front of them by the oppressors.

    This supposed shift to unreality is just you realizing the true nature of empire. It is your mythologies shattering before your eyes and the realization of the actual world you live in.

    “That’s not the way the world really works anymore.” He continued “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors … [...]

    The American empire was created on genocide and chattel slavery and the brutality this government has unleashed against humanity domestically and globally is unprecedented and has continued in a straight line since the oligarchs of this empire deemed(they wrote it in their constitution) those of certain features and ethnicity of being less than human. Brutality was enshrined in its founding document. The founding mythologies of the empire are designed to hide this very fact. The Statue of Liberty was originally intended to be a symbol of ending slavery, but the white racist oligarchs could not bare to have a black women be a symbol of liberty.

    Torture and the zeal for torture, evidenced by the movie watching public, is part and parcel of the American psyche. Imperial and cultural elitism is pervasive through American culture. Hollywood has been programming the population of this country and the world to accept brutal violence against other humans as normal and that American violence is exceptional in that it is always for good. This starts at an early age, by pledging allegiance to a blood soaked flag is hypocritical to the very idea of freedom.

    The propaganda concerning 9/11 has been so powerful that supposed great logicians are too afraid to go agains the official narrative.

    “Torture is simply a symptom of the depravity that has infected our government at all levels.” There was no infection, the empire was created on genocide and chattel slavery and the brutality this government has unleashed against humanity domestically and globally is unprecedented and has continued in a straight line since the oligarchs of this [...]

  • Thanks Mason for putting this up hopefully this will get some momentum.

    I remember when the many who frequented this site could careless about this epidemic.

    “Colonialism. The enforced spread of the rule of reason. But who is going to spread it among the colonizers?” -Anthony Burgess

    All Van Buren is saying that ‘we must save Iraq from the Iraqis’, colonial thinking at best, cultural elitism at its worst.

    “A divided Iraq, maintained by an American presence, is the only hope for long-term stability…”

    Only a fucking imperial cultural elitist would say something like this. Are one of those Van Buren?

    “Prominently displayed in predictive programming on TV, like L&O episode.”

    The funniest thing about L&O is that there tag line is “ripped from the headlines”.

    Brings up that old question does art imitate life or vice versa?

    “domestic infiltrators, provocateurs like FBI sting operations, sharpshooters on roofs, organizations like anarchists that have been originated by USG. ”

    Ah now I think I know what you mean? Assata Shakur knows about this personally.

    I know you can’t speak for Chomsky, but has he ever conveyed to you why he is so ambivalent about whether 9/11 was a False Flag operation or truly an event that was out of the scope and control of the imperial security forces? How does he reconcile the holes in the official narrative, if [...]

    It is not clear that he is joking, you are assuming that he is, you said so yourself. Whether he(Chomsky) is or isn’t, he is sill a too much of a coward to take a real stance about 9/11. A defining moment in the empire’s history.

    “…although unarmed, allegedly posed such a danger to the personal safety of a trained FBI agent that the agent’s only option was to kill Todashev.

    “Well, this is a good illustration of how remote our system is from capitalism. It’s hard to think of any greater violation of capitalist and market principles than slavery.” Chomsky is an idiot and an intellectual coward. How can he not know that slavery is unfettered capitalism to the extreme. Or that the reason why [...]
