Mayor of New York is Karl Marxing again

Tangential note: Prior to 2019, the Democratic [Socialist] Party of New York State “just” controlled one of the two chambers in the Legislature (the House), and the Governorship, and the Courts. Now, in 2019, on top of that, they also control the other chamber in the Legislature (the Senate). Now, day-by-day, in just the past few weeks, New York State has been moving even more aggressively, putting more laws in place to further implement their socialist, “Californication” utopia agenda. Go to Empire Report New York for the fast-moving, daily coverage.

On to New York City. We have this from ZeroHedge (1/12/2019): “New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took to the stage on Thursday to deliver his State of the City address – the sixth such one he has delivered since being in office. The theme was clear: money in the city is in the wrong hands and needs to be redistributed to others.”

On that note, let’s take a little trip down memory lane, taking a look again at De Blasio’s rhetoric and how socialism leaves the creative individual producers (the people) in the lurch…

The mayor of New York embraces Karl Marx

September 2017

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!” (Karl Marx, 1875)

At, Kelen McBreen has unearthed a stunning statement NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio made to New York Magazine:

De Blasio: “What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development… Look, if I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed. And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents. That’s a world I’d love to see, and I think what we have, in this city at least, are people who would love to have the New Deal back, on one level. They’d love to have a very, very powerful government, including a federal government, involved in directly addressing their day-to-day reality.”


The elimination of private property rights is one of the primary tenets of extreme socialism/Communism.

And of course, the disposition of private property—the takeover—would be achieved by government.

So for those people who think the rising tide of socialism is just a myth, you now have the mayor of the world’s most powerful city advocating it publicly and openly.

And the response of the mainstream press? A yawn, and silence.

Or to put it another way, bland acceptance.

Private property was one of the basic issues Ayn Rand, the most reviled and adored novelist of the 20th century, explored in depth. Here are several statements she uncompromisingly offered:

“Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

“The doctrine that ‘human rights’ are superior to ‘property rights’ simply means that some human beings have the right to make property out of others; since the competent have nothing to gain from the incompetent, it means the right of the incompetent to own their betters and to use them as productive cattle. Whoever regards this as human and right, has no right to the title of ‘human’.”

“You cannot force intelligence to work: those who’re able to think, will not work under compulsion; those who will, won’t produce much more than the price of the whip needed to keep them enslaved. You cannot obtain the products of a mind except on the owner’s terms, by trade and by volitional consent. Any other policy of men toward man’s property is the policy of criminals, no matter what their numbers.”

In a half-sane society, private property rights would be debated in depth at every college, without interference. But that is no longer possible, owing to censorship of speech.

Beyond this restriction, students aren’t equipped with tools of analysis to approach the subject. Instead, they’re indoctrinated with vapid generalities.

As I’ve detailed in several recent articles (see tag:socialism here), the rank promotion of socialism has nothing to do with “power to the people.” Socialism is an elite strategy, boosted by Globalists as a way of gaining control of governments and populations.

Their pretense of “share and care” is a mask behind which they are instituting a worldwide management system. They, not the people, will own the means of production, and they will determine the distribution of goods and services.

Instead of solving the problem of predatory mega-corporations, “socialism” will elevate those corporations to even greater heights of power.

As just one example—what president of the US stood for, and promoted, the greatest degree of socialism? That would be Franklin Roosevelt, who presided over the New Deal and World War 2. How did he rein in corporations and prosecute their crimes? Are you kidding?

Consider Charles Higham’s classic, Trading with the Enemy:

“What would have happened if millions of American and British people, struggling with coupons and lines at the gas stations, had learned that in 1942 Standard Oil of New Jersey [part of the Rockefeller empire] managers shipped the enemy’s [Germany’s] fuel through neutral Switzerland and that the enemy was shipping Allied fuel? Suppose the public had discovered that the Chase Bank in Nazi-occupied Paris after Pearl Harbor was doing millions of dollars’ worth of business with the enemy with the full knowledge of the head office in Manhattan [the Rockefeller family among others?] Or that Ford trucks were being built for the German occupation troops in France with authorization from Dearborn, Michigan? Or that Colonel Sosthenes Behn, the head of the international American telephone conglomerate ITT, flew from New York to Madrid to Berne during the war to help improve Hitler’s communications systems and improve the robot bombs that devastated London? Or that ITT built the FockeWulfs that dropped bombs on British and American troops? Or that crucial ball bearings were shipped to Nazi-associated customers in Latin America with the collusion of the vice-chairman of the U.S. War Production Board in partnership with Goering’s cousin in Philadelphia when American forces were desperately short of them? Or that such arrangements were known about in Washington and either sanctioned or deliberately ignored?”

If you want a modern example of “socialism” at work, consider another soft promoter of this philosophy, President Barack Obama, and his response to one of the most predatory of corporations, Monsanto, and other food giants.

From Scott Creighton, “Obama Pitches India Model of GM Genocide to Africa”:

“At the G8 Summit held two weeks ago at Camp David, President Obama met with private industry and African heads of state to launch the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a euphemism for monocultured, genetically modified crops and toxic agrochemicals aimed at making poor farmers debt slaves to corporations, while destroying the ecosphere for profit.”

“But African civil society wants no part of this latest Monsanto aligned ‘public private partnership.’ Whatever will the progressives do now that their flawless hero has teamed up with their most hated nemesis [Monsanto] to exploit an entire continent like they did to India not that long ago?…”

“With a commitment of $3 billion, Obama plans to ‘partner up’ with mega-multinationals like Monsanto, Diageo, Dupont, Cargill, Vodafone, Walmart, Pepsico, Prudential, Syngenta International, and Swiss Re because, as one USAID representative says ‘There are things that only companies can do, like building silos for storage and developing seeds and fertilizers.’

“Of course, that’s an outrageous lie. Private citizens have been building their own silos for centuries. But it’s true that only the biowreck engineers will foist patented seeds and toxic chemicals on Africa.”

Obama? A socialist warrior against corporations on behalf of the people? It’s long past the time for ripping that false mask away.

Socialism? Power to the people? Share and care? Special concern for the downtrodden?

Socialism is a means for government to gain ironclad control of the means of production by colluding with mega-corporations.

That collusion, that tight partnership has been called fascism. And that’s what socialism turns out to be.

To the degree that governments are socialist, in England, the US, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, China, Canada, Australia and other countries, that’s the pattern.

It would evolve into the same pattern in New York, where Mayor Bill De Blasio is blowing smoke up everybody’s backside, with his remarks about people-power and strong government taking over private property.

If the mayor wants to prove otherwise, let’s see him go after the most mighty anti-people corporation in his city: Goldman Sachs. Let’s see him lead a no-holds-barred prosecution of that outfit’s crimes.

Let’s see him attack the company that is running a significant chunk of Donald Trump’s presidency.

    Guys like DeBlasio can’t wait for someone else to be in charge of his life, I guess. He doesn’t realize it yet, but what he’s championing will also involve him and his life and his family. He’s too stupid to know better.

    And this is a bit OT, but if you believe that all of a sudden ISIS is making waves in Syria again, raise your hand. This is just too convenient to be real. Lindsey Graham et al don’t want american troops pulled out of the middle east, because they’ve making sooooooooooooo much money off this endeavor, so they stage a false flag operation once again. Graham is not a friend to PDJT, and I’m sure PDJT is aware and wary of this. Graham is in this for Graham and no one else. He’s afraid he might lose a nickle. I can’t stand the guy, can you tell??!

    • That would be Putin in his zero sum game.

      He is a one trick pony. He is using and abusing, the Anti-American rhetoric around the globe to fuel his expansionism and empire building…he has visions of being the next Peter the Great.

      Really the source of all this socialism rising is taking advantage of that and feeding the fake news to the androids of America.

      Syria is run by a Cult of Personality despot, and dictator. Whose family has dominated syria for fifty years…shouldn’t it be time for a change?

      There are two sides to the coin of MAGA and bringing all the troops home. And only being concerned with America.
      I am afraid that Trump is compromised and knows it…to admit the Russian hack would imply knowledge of it.

      You disliking Graham does not negate him being right…hm. It is ok to dislike the speaker but like waht is being said…

      Russia has big plans for Syria and the vast amounts of natural gas that will pass through another Putin pipeline, through there from the largest sweet gas field on the planet, from Iran to the EU nations.

      Putin is building an energy grid to isolate and control EU nations. If they don’t comply he will turn off the energy.

        ” He is using and abusing, the Anti-American rhetoric around the globe to fuel his expansionism and empire building…he has visions of being the next Peter the Great.”

        Have a look at the map and tell me who has expanded. Where are those Russian bases in Africa ? How about South America ?

        Yes I know, the Chinese are coming. I hope they do and open more restaurants thus helping to shut down McDonald’s.

        “Syria is run by a Cult of Personality despot, and dictator. Whose family has dominated syria for fifty years…shouldn’t it be time for a change? ”

        It sure kept the various tribes in their place. Anyone visiting Syria (something obviously you did not) would have found out that the country was well run and tollerant to all religions. The same tyrannical model kept peace in Syria as well as developing it way beyond where Saudi Arabia is until Democracy arrived and destroyed the place. Oh I’m sorry, me bad. US of A knows best what is better for any country on this planet.

        In the US we have the cult of Democrats and Republicans and that has worked out just great for the Middle Class in the 21-st Century.

        • Impressive number 12!

          With a map! Do you have flow charts?… trolling are we. For CJ? or…???

          Haven’t seen you around here before. I talked with Tom_11 a while back and I have read comments with Tom_6, and 7.

          If you notice on you wonderfully colored map, there is a legend to this myriad of nice dots. Sooooo…lets connect them.


          Now a large number of these bases have FORMAL AGREEMENTS and have been in operation for decades now, some since before world war one and deux.

          A large number of these US bases are not only used by the US but mainly are run by the countries they are situated in… Take for instance. That one in Canada, it is a Canadian Air base, but because we get along so well…it is also an American base. They still abide by Canadian law.

          This map is not up to date and many of these bases have been closed in the nineties after the fall (sic) of the Soviet Union. We do not have any paperwork on the matter AS YET — of the collapse? and so, in the Court system, many treaties and agreements are in a hell of a mess…but I digress Tom_11 sorry 12.

          Now the countries with access agreements are really only fueling bases or muster areas for troops, vehicles and whatnot in transport to other countries…Amiable and friendly governments who receive handsome US Aid monies and US assistance open up the use of their airports and military airbases for access as America does the same in the good faith of FREE countries getting along. MANY BASES ARE RENTED, OR LEASED.

          Countries with other forms of Military cooperation have joint agreements and perform joint exercises as they are trained by US military or they are an ally of the USA.

          For instance NATO countries all have military Cooperation agreements as do the US with those countries. France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, the Nederlands, Iceland, Norway, and the Philipines etc have Joint US and (place-name of country her) bases that are either attached or semi attached to the idea of NATO, or wanting Nato status. Some of those are direct operational bases that are operated by all NATO countries in their joint effort to save the world from those who would enthrall us all in the Socialist or Communist way of desperate oppression.

          Some of those bases supply a livelihood for Islanders in the South Pacific, as military airbase contractors are usually the budgeted and cooperative way since in many cases a town has grown up around an airbase.

          Air bases in England, France, Canada, and Australia have been there since before the second world war, and are long-standing and established cooperations between those FREE nations, since the second world war.

          On the other hand the Russian Federation have fifteen established bases outside  of the Russian Federation that have been established only since December 8th 1991. and the formation of the Russian Federation…thats fifteen military bases since Putin came to power.

          The dissolution of the USSR, halved the population and the area controlled by the Soviets. Military bases in satellite countries, once part of the USSR, simply slipped into the past and achieved autonomy. Putin the Stalinist that he is, is. hellbent to restablishing what he trully believes is a loss of Russian property.

          China is expanding to Africa, Dijibouti, as ‘Is’ Russia — which is in talks with South Africa a BRICS nation. Russia is also trying to bring back into the fold, Anglola. a once Socialist Marxist nation. And there are other BRICS nations who have bases outside their country — India has 8 miltary bases outside the country.

          A new Russian naval and air base has been established in Eritrea, with another in progress in Venezuela.

          The Syrian naval base for the black sea fleet, was established in 2017. The Crimean and Georgian as well as Ukrainian bases are recent expansions of Russian aggressive military expansion.

          “It sure kept the various tribes in their place.”

          Ah..kept them in their place, yes, especially the Kurds and Yazidis, Druze, the Bedouin. The slaughter of Christians by Bashar the eye doctor (sic). The Syrian Free army are a favorite of Assad’s, “Putting them in their place.”

          Assad is a Russian puppet, who kisses the ass of Putin like his father Hafez did of the old grey Soviets in the Politburo years ago. The Assads are socialists and the Syrian people do not wish to see all that vast wealth of their country not be enrich around. At least with Gadaffi he sent cheques every month.

          “The same tyrannical model kept peace in Syria as well as developing it way beyond where Saudi Arabia is until Democracy”

          Assumptions make an ass out of you…you speak as if the United States and democracy caused Syrian problems…caused that cruel tyranny to fall apart. It had nothing to do with Putin’s new geopolitical ideas for the area; and Assads obedience to it — gas passing through from another country freely — another Russian pipeline, and the thief of Syrian wealth with Assad’s help.

          It had nothing to do with social media and the Internet and the spread of ideas and formation of new beliefs; it had nothing to do with fifty years of dictatorship and Shia dominated Baath Socialism by the inventor of the ‘suicide bomber’, Hafez al Assad and, the inheritance of such a despotic regime by his son Bashar al Assad — and their opulent and extravagant life — their vast off shore accounts, while the Syrian populace relied on a stipend and socialist biscuits and the philosophy of misery for breakfast.

          It had nothing to do with the fixed and fraudulent elections and the oppression and assassination of opposition leaders. It had nothing to do with the awakening and rise of people eager to have their own dreams realized and for a say it’s government, who they had political dealings with, as a new and sovereign and democractic and very rich nation.

          You sounding like a victim and hate those that have succeeded, you’ve implied your of the socialist bent with your Putin apologist stance?…isn’t that so?  

    • Larry says:

      My thoughts, exactly.

      By the way – what’s PDJT?

  3. From Quebec says:

    Here is an easy way how to shut up those stupid people who wants socialism .
    Just ask them in which socialist country they would like to live in and deport them freely to the country of their choosing like Venezuala for instance. It will not take long for them to want to come back to the USA

    By the way, I like Donald Junior quote, he said: In the USA we walk our dogs, in Venezuala, they eat their dogs,,

    • ” […] they eat their dogs,,”

      There are no dogs in Venezuela, or cats. Budgies… They have been made into stew months ago.

      Maduro’s Socialism has over spent, and took the rest in a arms sale to Putin. No money in the government coffers, and placed the country in debt to Russia up to its ears. Venezuela is defaulting on those big Russian loans.The boss don’t like the losses.

      And Poutine gonna haveta send some guyz he nose in Chechnya to maybe give a little nudge; a necktie; or maybe Nick M a little sleepy by wid the fishies. If can’t come up somethin the boss needs.
      Like he did wid Chavez.

  4. NaturalWoman says:

    Someone I know had relatives who immigrated legally and worked hard in NYC, eventually owning the building their business was in. One day college-age kids came by to say that they couldn’t afford to rent an apartment, so would they allow them to live in their loft for less money? After the agreement was made, NYC made a law that rent couldn’t be raised. Nor could the landlord evict renters. The worst law was that all of these lofts had to have elevators to accomodate the handicapped. The cost of this broke the immigrants, who now had nothing after all those years of hard work. The mayors words should be a huge red flag to anyone with the smallest amount of common sense.

  5. ” The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”  — Margaret Thatcher

    ” Socialism: the ‘Philosophy of Misery’.”

    Haven’t I been fighting that good fight lately…bastards are everywhere Jon! Like bed-bugs on a new Vietnamese mattress

    They are everywhere and spreading like cancer. And learning from the anti-Christ, and arch criminal and kelptocrat and Czar of Russia himself Vladimir Putin. They use the zero-sum game, that he teaches and slip in so easily in their counter-measured ways. He takes advantage of America’s enemies in this way.

    If you have been paying attention, you’ll notice that the election field is taking on the nature of the Russian Federation election field. Around the globe; and lately in Venezuela –with Nicolas’ Maduro a socialist marxist fool who fixes elections. What a hotbed? And the Russians want to build a base there, and have been invited.

    The new cold war is upon us.

    Local elections are…a main party or two — similar shades of red, with a decoration of many more parties in the socialist opposition flavour. They aim to flood the electoral list with Socialist-Marxist identity politics parties. With mandates focused on environment; LBGTQ rights; poverty, crime and feminism and global warming what not…it is right out of the Socialist-Marxist handbook.

    They are like a hive mind. Did the aliens take over while I was sleeping?

    I have been especially interested in this new runner-up to the White House — who will crowd the electoral candidates list with the likes of Bernie Sanders. She is a favorite of his…I think the fix is in!

    Hillary is bound and determined to get a female Democrat in the White House in 2020 — that could be a Social-Democrat, and we know how badly that experiment ended last time…

    One socialist of particular, is the socialist bent Tulsi Gabbard, an Elizabeth Warrenish clone, who wants all Hawaiians to be considered indigenous peoples…an air head, and of the tribal Hawaiian identity, but with, a heap of socialist to-do’s on her little control freak red list. Part of the great cosmic cluster fuck-up of socialist touchy feelies and “there is only one consciousness, and we are all part of it” filtered through a thought-box they live in.

    Had a dream the other night Jon, about going to my eye examination and I was sitting in the rest area of the eye doctors office, in a small city close to here.

    I walked into the office, booked in and then sat down in rest area. And all these long black leather overcoats with black fedoras were sitting in the crowded space. On each others laps; on the edges of chairs and seats. Everyone dressed the same. Same face. Same look…same sneer. Same crossed arms. They all blinked in synchronicity.

    And so I looked at them, staring at me, like a room full of Agent Smiths…and so I said out loud, for all to hear, ” Was there a black friday sale on black coats and hats today…and I missed it?”

    I said to the captive audience, “Is it going to rain today, or are you guys going to a parade?”

    One of these Putin bots said — after a sniffling laugh, caught suddenly at the end like a hiccup…”Sooo, you sinks you’re a funny guyz Mister Burnz…heh”

    “No I was just wondering — personally I don’t like leather. Do all you guys work at the same office, or belong to the same gay men club?”

    “Vee ask ze questions MISTER BURNZ.”

    “Oh, I was here to get my eyes ah CHEKISTS…cuse me, I mean…. My eyes CZECHED?

    “Sows funny, you little Irish person of insignificance, youz in troubles, youz shoed no. And zis ‘IS’ ze examination.”

    “Should I drop my pants? No peeking! Don’t want the bald-headed mouse to scream.”

    “Hahhahhaah sows funny Mister Burnz…you won’t bees laughing soonz”

    They all blinked all at the same time, alas… my opportunity stood there in a silent and slow moving second Jon. A moment of clarity; colors heightened, the air was like glass. That’s when I did my Mr Anderson (Neo) swooshing stuff, and dodging bullets and super fast fighting moves. Then nursey came swishing into the rest area, and everybody jumped in their seats quickly and stopped fighting. Everybody humming a tune, staring at the ceiling. A sweat bead, from a forehead, dropped, in slow motion, noisily onto the floor from one of the Putin-bots — sounded like an explosion when it hit the floor. Everyone else was looking distracted. And nursey said,  “Sows… is der a Mister Burnz here…valk dis vay Mister Burnz, vee have an extra, extra special exzamination for shoe…?”

    Dun Dun, Dunnn.

  7. From Quebec says:

    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. – Winston Churchill

  8. We have to tread carefully here, Jon, as property ownership is the root of the tyranny against mankind. A pertinent little poem (origins unknown) was dropped off on my FB channel:

    “No one owns the water
    No one owns the lands
    No one owns the oceans
    No one owns the sands
    These are given by our mother
    The planet provides for free
    Only by the hands of the greedy
    Does the Earth require a fee”

    Of course the dear mayor uses “generalities”. Get into specifics, detail on those rents and locations and the most idle journalist could turn him to blubber.


    • ” […] property ownership is the root of the tyranny against mankind.”

      Are you sure you want to stand behind this statement? Because I worked hard for my property and its mine I own it, it belongs to me. And I’ll kill anybody that tries to take it from me.

      Your poem shit, sounds like some touchy feelie and faggy Indian song; ; a mute whimper from the philosophy of the miserables.

      Are you a socialist Oz?

      Mother earth?; a Socialist protest slogan — keep talking like this and I’m going to have to go to my safe place…

      • Mr Burns, people must live somewhere otherwise they die. Therefore, if your property is where you live, you have every right to live in it and die for it.

        Refer to my other replies for more “flesh on that bone”

      • Those that understand and bother to follow history, know many people were forced to exodus to unsuitable living conditions or face death by war or attrition. Capitalism is the death shroud of everything fair because is relies on profitable commerce. Profits assure either buyers or sellers are cheated out of “value”.

            If an orange is worth $1 that is its price, not a penny more, not a penny less.

            Of course, fiscal systems need to accommodate that. Capitalism exploits it and the only realistic outcome is INFLATION. Could I devise a fiscal system to replace capitalism. Given sufficient time, I think I could.

            p.s. I have been paid 3 cents an hour for my book. Is that FAIR?

            What wrong with profit..its a law of physics…

          • That’s an assumption, MB

            In fact history has proven you wrong. Check out details on the South Sea Bubble and how it defeated Newton’s “impeccable” gold standard sometime.

    • truth1 says:

      the poem has points, but I would see it as simplistic. Houses allow boundaries between harsh nature and adequate comfort/survival. Land that you grow stuff on, needs to be controlled and protected, reserved for those who sow the seed and gather the harvest so that they may continue to eat and live. That is a fundamental right. Hunting and gather only work while the people are few and the animals many.
      Hence, even kings realized the reliability of growing and cultivating food to insure a good harvest so that “citizens become soldiers” can be fed so the king can march them off to die. Brilliant, isn’t it?

      I want to point out the true benevolence of Jehovah’s way of guiding and caring for His people. In most nations, land is a privilege, not a right. this eliminates most being able to have land and be independent.
      But Jehovah (God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel) granted land, even as kings do, and made land an absolute right of inheritance, free of charge, compliments of God, the almighty, Jehovah. God forbid Israelites from charging each other interest. God created debt forgiveness to be carried out ever 7 years. this limited slavery to at most, 7 years. People were not property. you can not own them forever.

      Never has there been a more merciful and benevolent system. Oh, and I almost forgot. In order to keep people smart and obedient, God created a bureaucratic priesthood to keep records, including the laws of God. But like all stupid humans, they turned their back on the bet God they ever had and His best rules. They think that Satan is preferable. We’ll see how that works out in the long run.

      but at the core of the worship and devotion was land ownership that each man might be able to have his own family and support them. God said it was a right! Why Israel left that, I’ll never know. But I do believe that Satan made an offer to them while they were in Babylon. Most never went back to Jerusalem and Judah and became merchants and remained so as the empires would change hands over time.

      Land ownership was everything. God did not tax property. He did require a tenth of the produce and animals to support the priesthood. if the land did not produce, then you paid nothing. Of course, you might starve, too.

      Indeed, a finer god has never existed.

      • You make a very good point, Truth1….as usual.

        We have to say, if it belongs there and it is used as it has been used, then nature supports the cause. Conversely, if it was there before others came and was interfered with by the other because they desired what was, then it those that interfere that attack the balance of nature.

        Prime Law has one simple directive:

        “Thou shalt not oppress, for any reason”

    Ah socialism! the lady all prettied up with heavy layers of make up, and provocative sexy clothes that ignite powerful wet dreams. Ah, but if ya ever saw her without the makeup. you’d run in fear, except that you have gone blind after having gazed at her.

    socialism is that sweet sounding promise of every thing you had ever wanted. You don’t have to work any more. those corporations will be made to pay for all they ever did to us or robbed us of. Housing should be free! These should be your rights. Vote for me, Mrs. Claus, and I’ll make Santa bring you twice as much each Xmas.

    Commies and socialists are brilliant in this respect. They know better than anyone else, that people only listen to or believe, what they want to hear. Commies know that snake oil is the number selling product that they have to offer. The people love to have their ears tickled and told how beautiful or handsome they are, and how smart they are and that they are underappreciated and that the party would to have them in their camp. Comrade, you can have it all! We’ll put the rich in their places fast. No excuses. this time, they are going to pay like they should have been all along. Will join us?

    What the useful idiots do not understand is that it is the rich trying to sell them this BS. the stupid will believe anything that happens to be what they want. They can just wish it into existence. They believe in fairy tales and myths. they have the brain power of an amoeba. They are sitting ducks for the elite exploiters who know the weaknesses of the peasants only too well.

    I knew a really good snake oil salesman once. He said, Truth1, you’re problem is you are trying to sell truth and logic to people who do not want truth and logic. Never try to sell a potential customer what they don’t want. Sell them what they do want, but don’t give it to them. Instead Give them what you want, and tell them it IS what they want, but they just don’t see it yet and that they need to give it time. they will want it so bad that they will trust you and go along with it.

    I did not listen to him and I am still trying to sell them truth and logic. I never said I was all that bright, But that snake oil salesman sure was. He’s running the world as we speak.

    When IQ’s are low, exploitation of them is high. Socialism is so easy to sell and good sense and logic is impossible to even give away. That does not bode well for the few with high IQs. We’re screwed!

    Great article, I learned much. I’m sure some of you have heard of H.R. 104 signed into law by that pedophile creep groper-Bush?

    I’m sure some of you have seen small articles exposing the purchase/storing of thousands of portable guillotines?

    I’m sure, like me, most of you snickered the CIA used term; conspiracy theorist and “nut-job”?

    That bill, signed into law in ’91 but NOT YET enforced? slyly, (pushed through by the same folk who enslaved us in ’13 – USING the same tactics; holiday weekend, speaker telling the legislators it was time to go home for the holidays, well except for a pre-decided handful of snakes to “unanimously” vote it in made NOAHIDE LAW the law of the land.

    “The new cold war is upon us.”


    It is clear now, that the main motivation behind Special Counsel Ferris Bueller’s fake investigation into Trump-Russian collusion was to gin up a New Cold War in order to preserve the obscene profits generated by the Global Military-Industrial Complex – with The International Banksters funding both “sides”.

    The Good News is that this will almost certainly be the last Cold War.

    The Bad News is that approximately 15 minutes after its demise, our lovely little blue-water marble will be a smoking, radioactive ruin.

    Ah well ….the Universe is doubtless TEEMING with an endless variety of intelligent species and civilizations…but still, our exit makes me a little sad…

    We could have been a contender …

    • Your a socialist delusional.

      The evidence is beyond a doubt I’ve read and seen the facts. I feel bad for him and he was naive politically.
      His problem is he should have come out honestly to the American people — they would have admired him for it — and he should have stated that the Russian Cozy bear and Fancy bear hacked the DNC and found the Podesta link got Hillary emails and gave it to the traitor Assange, who had a axe to grind in pulling down Hillary Clinton.

      I don’t like that answer, I don’t like those facts, but cognitive dissonance is not my forte’

      She clearly won on votes, and I am afraid that he thought a re-election would be called…and so he kept quiet. And that is the sin that Putin has been using against him… And Putin knew this and has used it to manipulate Trump geo-politics. Trump has tried my other ways to compromise, but Putin is a master spy, and a zero-sum game specialist. it is how Berlin and Hungary were kept in line during the Cold war.
      Now the Russians have be fuck-ups for a long time, especially this little Stalinist fuck,and this is not the first time they have interfered in American politics. This time they had the Internet and a growing dissent in the west which they have capitilized on..

      But Putin is a kleptocratic thug, and he thinks he has had the last laugh, I’m not talking about a nuclear war, here… but I am saying this SOB, need a black eye, and a fat lip a serious can of whoop ass that knocks him and his gang of ill repute out of the running, and puts him where he belongs; in the garbage can of history.
      The Russian people need to be encouraged to free themselves, they want it, they need it, they deserve it, now if the world blows up fighting for freedom and the light so be it, I’m spiritually set…how about you?

      And I don’t like extortion in any form.
      Trumps negligence is Putin gain…

      But we as free people cannot be coward by a nuclear threat from a punk. He is dangerous and arms Americas enemies with illegal weapons.

      Ever heard of MAD…Mutually Assured Destruction? Because he has…he does not need an excuse he is a student; the golden boy of Andropov, who is the only man to consider an actual first strike on the united states, and he had to be talked down. he was that fucking mad.

      ” […] our lovely little blue-water marble […]”

      Our? Lol…ten thousand years after all this shit storm ends, a whole new reality starts minus these humans…a different consciousness arises; a whole new, new. You think man is the best this planet has produced. There have been thousands of wars, nuclear and with technologies we are incapable of understanding as the present.
      Giants walk on these lands, gods lived and left eons ago, and populated the cosmos.

      We at present are the trailer trash of this local system.

      “We could have been a contender …”

      We is a tired old movie that needs to end.

      We? Whose We by the way?

      In my world there is only “I”, there is no WE.

      We?…fuck we. We is the problem.

    “The elimination of private property rights is one of the primary tenets of extreme socialism/Communism.”

    I recall reading somewhere, and i do not know if it is true or fal;se, because i have been unable to find it, that Eleanor Roosevelt actually boaste4d that they were eliminating private property.

    My problem with the US is an elected body that pretends to represent the people who ACTUALLY DO THE WORK AND CREATE VALUE, while actually representing a parasitic class that does nothing but destroy value.

    Religion wants you to give your power away, an beg god for things-
    “Representative” government does the same thing and wants you to beg them to give you a fraction of the power you gave away to them.
    Materialist believe there is no free will so any of these question of power is meaningless.

    Here is what the Bible actually says and means.
    “Have i not said you are gods and sons of the most high”?
    Jesus was a common name, the gospels do not agree because Jesus represents EVERYMAN.

    Jesus said what he does you can do and greater…and it is acknowledged that kings and prophets were anointed “christs” . Fact is they were called called sons of god..

    My point is to instill in you the knowledge that you have been lied to.
    Christianity is a cargo cult…so are all religions, and government is just outright idolatry.

    You ARE the power.(i don’t mean you are GOD of everyone else and can create for them that is the way government CONS people)
    You have latent supernatural abilities that have been denied you because you have been brainwashed into believing otherwise, and giving your power away.

    Especially the power to create.

      Bunny, I’ve been thinking along the same lines, lately……wondering what sort of native powers we’ve been TAUGHT to ignore…

      I’m beginning to believe that as far as what might be possible, the sky really is the limit!

    Thanks for this, Jon, glad you appreciate private property rights for us “common people.” I own my little upstairs condo and 1/200th of the community property here, and I own half of an old house in need of serious repairs. This is all of my security in life, along with some bank savings, as I’m retired. All of it is continually under threat of being severely gouged or even taken away by a tyrannical government someday, mainly through property taxes to pay for ridiculous waste, and economic collapses also brought about by the same insanity. Nice feeling.

    I despise socialism. And when it and unscrupulous capitalism (i.e. Monsanto) join forces it’s the worst of all worlds.

    To see what it’s like living under full government “care-taking,” just phone a government agency with some vital question you need answered, and see what that’s like, or spend your whole day waiting in line for “service” at some government agency (like a DMV) staffed by oh-so-calm and overconfident, overpaid people who will get lavish pensions for life. Or check out a “free” clinic waiting room. Gov’t “healthcare” is a nightmare in itself…the vaccine dictates alone are outrageous.

    No competition means zero need to please the customer…you can even treat them like absolute crap and they either calmly wait their turn and obey the dictates or they’re in a heap of trouble. County/city animal control is another example of the dreadfulness of dealing with government tyranny.

    Love what truth1 said earlier.

  15. NaturalWoman says:

    Laura, I despise socialism, too. We worked hard, tightening our belts on unnecessary spending for decades, to pay off a mortgage with hard work and self-discipline. We did this to be able to take care of ourselves in old age, rather than being dependent on someone else to pay our way. Then a private oil company stole it under emminent domain to benefit only itself not the public, aided by crooked politicians who were supposedly conservative who promoted lies to get it done. I see tyranny everywhere, in everything the government touches.

    • truth1 says:

      Well Ozzie, I think it goes without saying that as a species, we have not been very good caretakers. In fact, we suck at it.

    • truth1 says:

      you bring up good points. Many lives built the great powerful Oz, I mean, USA. we “sacrificed” a few million soldiers along the way and killed many opposing armies in millions. We came back in 1947 to get our reward and then They went right to work in sending out jobs overseas, jacking prices and inflation and now the latest (Millennials) will never be able to afford a home and will have to live in the equivalent of a dorm room.

      I save the best for last. they want to do away with all of us. All the tech they are developing has only one purpose. To kill as many as possible, to set a new record. Such a nice bunch. And we still will not learn, even as we take our last breaths.

      So you see, the rumors of my being an optimist were all true. Just call me Sunshine 😉

    • Laura says:

      Natural Woman: You did all the right things to be independent, not a burden on society, and this is what you get in return? Awful. Eminent domain is another horror perpetrated by “humans.” That’s when fake conservative companies (strictly ruthless opportunists) join forces with government to screw over, dump on and devastate good, law abiding citizens. Government is elected by and representative of the people. The mob rule of democracy is horrible, where a majority of doofuses totally influenced by slick tv ads, decide on policy for everyone.
