This is because Buford Rogers was caught before he could commit acts that would have certainly been deemed terroristic. Had they been committed by anyone with connections to a foreign group, a religion other than Christianity and been non white. From the interview done with Buford Rogers’ parents, We, Ourselves of the Collective clearly have the Federal Bureau of Investigation to thank for keeping this domestic and local grudge from becoming something much more serious and deadly. Many conservative forums and blogs are making light of this arrest. The Meditators find this both amusing and shocking.

Rogers family Montevideo

Consider this scenario; a man is caught in a home with pressure cookers and black powder and nails and ball bearings and a tip leads to the FBI arresting him and his brother days before the Boston Marathon. After the holiday the media report the findings of local, state and Federal law enforcement. The plot to bomb the race and to carry out further attacks in New York City has been thwarted. Now is this person a potential terrorist based on what the police and the FBI suspect he could have done had he completed his bombs? Does it really matter if the person is an adherent to Islam from Dagestan or the product of poor white trash in western Minnesota?

The crime that will likely not stick against Buford Rogers is the possession of a firearm by a felon charge. It is alleged that Rogers had a Romanian AKM rifle and other firearms based upon his fingerprints being on them. Jeff Rogers, the father of Buford, says that his son only cleaned the weapons. What would the NRA say about a legal gun owner allowing a relative who is known felon who legally is barred from possessing a firearm easy access to them? Is this not one of the gaping loopholes in gun ownership regulation in America; the sales between relatives many times done after straw purchases?

Margaret Rogers a woman identified only as being married to Jeff Rogers said there were no pipe bombs in the home but the FBI stated the pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails were found in the shed with other potential weapons. Conservative blogs have already picked up on the words of this woman which echo terribly similarly to those by Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s mother which claim Buford is not a terrorist and that there was nothing found in the home. The reaction of the Rogers family and those that knew Buford Rogers run parallel to the sort of things that were said about the Boston Marathon bombers. Rogers even has a younger brother who can be seen in the picture above wearing camouflage and standing next to a poster which could be used for an anti-illiteracy campaign.

The words of Jeff Rogers are clear and to the point for all to see, “Bucky is not a terrorist. He is not out to bomb anyone. He’s a patriot like we all should be.” The Collective knows and understands exactly who the “we’ Jeff Rogers refers to in this quote. Rogers and his sons were members of a minor group of patriots in Minnesota known as the Black Snake Militia. The BSM has ties to the Southern Brotherhood Milita whose stated goals are [Emphasis Ours}:

“We oppose the United Nations , NATO and the Powers-That-Be, we are against the Federal Secular Humanists that run our Anti-Christian / Anti-God Government. We oppose Abortionists, CFR, the International Bankers ( Banks ) and Corporations. We oppose all meddling beauracratic [sic] entities.

We are anti-conformists and believe people should show absolute respect for the diverse differences in beliefs, ideas and character of others.

Our foremost objective is to establish a Theocracy .

We employ a social tribal order, to maintain our laws and see to the social welfare of our people.

Our purpose is to stand against all evil and utterly destroy the perpetrators of evil.”

And now this becomes, yet again, a matter for the Laal Hethri. The beliefs of many groups like the BSM and the SBM are the beliefs of the rank and file of the TEA Party. When an adherent to Islam commits such acts it is always terrorist when poor white theocrats plot to do similar things it is to conservatives simply a “local dispute” that got out of hand and the FBI has “overreacted.”

“Penn State shouldn’t have been given athletic sanctions by the NCAA for looking the other way during Jerry Sandusky’s repeated rape and abuse of young boys. If America were truly exceptional, the military should have been brought in and the entire county which worshipped at the altar of Joe Paterno would have been razed to the ground by all those leftover bunker busting bombs Bush bought for the Iraq war.”– Governor General Srindra Singh or Gilbesht in a debate about American exceptionalism with Sheol conservative MP Yancey Harrell on “Overdark” with Maarit Outi Pekkonen last night.

17684_10151302678801275_1550939780_n

The idea of American exceptionalism is not a new meme. The thought that the people who now live on this land, once occupied by the Human Beings; taken by violence in the name of profit, are more prosperous, more intelligent, cut from a more moral cloth and closer to the favor of their chosen Creator than any other has been clearly a concept of Faith for those who now call themselves “Conservatives” for the better part of the last one hundred twenty five Terran standard years. We, Ourselves, of the Collective and The Meditators have a problem with any such notion based simply on the statement expressed in the stripes of the flag above. One must begin to ask the questions of common men, the hoi polloi, and the oligarchs who now own your government and rule your media, “Who profits from this disaster?” and “What will be the spark that causes someone to give up their comfort in a revolution from which they may not reap a similar status to those they are fighting against?”

These are serious matters, not to be taken lightly as they were at Blogs4Victory just this past week. The conservatives there simply wanted to throw red meat at downtrodden aging white men who see their fathers have lost their birthright of unchecked bigotry in the last few decades and left them nothing more than the onanism of “being white is better than being black or brown” along with their Bibles to cling to in these desperate times. And, yes, We, Ourselves admit these are desperate times– for Conservatives. Not only is their ideology, their worldview dying, they are dying. For the moment there are a few million ardent young whites out there who shout just as loudly as the over 50 crowd about the “many ills of President Obama” but let Us be honest with Ourselves, these young men and women in their twenties aren’t in this politics game to bring back the Reagan years, roll back women’s reproductive rights or to solve America’s debt issues. They are seeking a pool of like minded people who given enough familiarity will allow them to get laid; something they wouldn’t do in a similar setting surrounded by more attractive more intelligent Progressives.

the good old days

So who does profit from all of America’s ills? There are many who do profit some of these groups will shock you others are well known. All must give up something or the Union will be lost to time and to history.

The-Rich-Get-Richer-Income-Inequality

Income inequality is clearly profited from by those who really run the country the oligarchs. Not just corporate CEOs but hedge fund managers, the boards of large law firms who write the laws and then pimp them to Congress and of course the religious oligarchs who are desperately trying to remain relevant in an age where technology is nearing its ability to make deities out of Men. And in the end this is nothing more than a clearly visceral reaction to the short duration of the human lifespan manifest in the form of greed for all things material.

Poverty-In-America-704926

Poverty has been used as a tool to keep the masses at bay since Time Immemorial. Poverty is profited from by the Church, the oligarchs and their corporate media. Poverty as an extension of bigotry feeds the furnace that drives the powerful to remain powerful. They do not care that a child is one day celebrating the reelection of America’s first Man of Color to the highest elected office and the next day a victim of gun violence. They do not care that children go hungry in the wealthiest nation on Terra as long as they are safe behind their gates and in their dens of luxury. Poverty is a prison sentence handed down by generations of greed and fear in the name of tribal purity.

An examination of these two ills shows how all the others are interconnected. It is time to drain their trough or America will be the soil where the seeds of failure of an entire species will be sown.

When I took this job as a writer about Culture War issues seven Terran years ago I never thought I would end up doing so much political writing. That is likely because I’m a Liberal and social issues to me are personal choices that people make not planks in a political platform. Offering people choice is not destroying anyone’s “way of life” yet a vocal minority forcing people to conform to outdated values, that they themselves treat like used toilet paper, clearly is.

Clint_Eastwood_-_Hang_Them_High

Karl Rove the master puppeteer of the George W Bush White House is now working for American Crossroads and has begun the great purge that will eventually reduce the GOP to a regional party. If the GOP jettisons its TEA Party elements this near permanent minority opposition will begin to move the party to the center and allow it to return to what it was in the pre-Nixon era of the 1960s when a moderate Republican was less rare than a unicorn. The goal for Rove is a difficult one to achieve; he must keep as many conservatives as possible within the party while assuring the loosest of cannons are cast a drift. Cut too deep and you will have a mass exodus of the bigots and the religious zealots who the GOP have depended on since 2000 to stave off irrelevancy.

Now enter Ashley Judd into the 2014 Senate race in Kentucky. Rand Paul is already in the Senate for that state and their likely isn’t much time left on Mitch McConnell’s dance card [how McConnell has survived being the only gay GOP Senator for this long has puzzled me for a decade and a half.]. There’s very little legitimate opposition for an intelligent woman with the financial backing like Judd would have. The ad above is running now because it is known that in Kentucky the Democrats have a voter registration advantage and that McConnell’s star is fading. But after the horrible failure of TEA Party fabvorites like Todd Akin in Missouri and Richard Mourdock in Indiana the last thing Rove and his GOP Establishment fat cats want to see is someone with diarrhea of the mouth taking on a beloved movie star. The terror for McConnell is so great that he has embraced the TEA Party in an effort to keep from being primaried in 2014. While in our polling Judd beats McConnell 52 to 48; Judd trounces the TEA Party favorite Rep. Thomas Massie 62-37.

alice tea party

And it is by being primaried that the GOP will be cut to ribbons. I can save the GOP right now with a simple explanation. Stop forcing candidates, incumbents, that can win and represent you well on 70% of your values issues out of races in the primaries simply because they have made a statement in defense of gay marriage, or have agreed with Obama on some issue or feel that a woman has the right to choose to have an abortion. America has more serious business than the settled issue of a woman’s right to choose. That battle is lost–move on. It is too late to appeal to minorities that ship has sailed because in the next ten presidential election years that minority as a group will be the majority, the voting majority. In that same forty years, by the year 2052, the base of 55 to 90 year old white men and women who remember back to a time when none of what has taken place in the last 13 years [a destructive terror attack on a major US city, a state legalizing gay marriage, a state legalizing marijuana, a black man being elected President, the Red Sox winning the World Series . . .] appeared possible outside of a Hollywood production will be dead or of such a small number that the Right will be more adequately described as the Center.

Rove has thrown a few spitballs at the TEA Party over the past few weeks and this is absolutely necessary. When he’s gone and I mean by the 2052 election what will the face of the establishment GOP look like? If there is a GOP it will have to look more like Marco Rubio and sound nothing like Allen West or Michele Bachmann to have survived. Either way for us this is a win win. If the GOP becomes a small but more centrist party this is the best outcome for America. If the TEA Party becomes the third party we see rising out of the ashes of a 2014 shellacking by the Democrats that gives them the Liberals the House and the Senate for Obama’s last two years then you have at least thirty years of uninterrupted Democratic Party Presidents. Keep in mind in the first half of this forty years Rush Limbaugh the last great voice for conservative ignorance and fear will too be dead [Limbaugh is currently 62 years old.–F.S.] and when that voice is silent the game will be over for the Right as it exists today.

As you likely have noticed, the Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork has taken a well deserved break from terrestrial matters over the past few weeks. This respite will continue for a brief period as we shift from American political and social matters, which I as Editor-in-Chief feel are decided at least for the near term, to focus on the larger and more pressing matters that affect all of Terra’s population. The new and more global vision of Hell’s leading daily newspaper will debut on the day many feel the Mayans predicted your planet would cease to exist, 21 December 2012.

Until then our writers will post opinion pieces from time to time about the subjects of their choice. I begin this soft period of transition with a return to American social and political matters. I read this morning at Blogs for Victory a post by Mark Edward Noonan that made me think very deeply about the future of American politics. Mr Noonan, who is keen to make predictions without taking all the myriad forces at play, stares into his conservative crystal ball yet again. This time he looks toward his latter years and even predicts the age of his death, 77 in 2041, and the cause, liberalism:

I’ll have died at the age of 77 of an easily treatable disease which I could not get care for because the National Health Service didn’t have sufficient resources to treat me before the disease went too far.

I’ll have been living from the age of 67 forward in a one-room, government-supplied retirement home which I was forced in to because given the way the economy developed I was never able to secure enough wealth to replace the home I lost in the wake of the 2008 financial crash.

My 401k had been destroyed years previously. First by a government program to start taxing it, secondly by the massive inflation which was necessary to get our annual deficit to become 15% of GDP.

While I officially retired at the age of 67 and started to collect my Social Security (worth about 50% less than it is today because during that bout of inflation the government kept insisting, in spite of rising food and fuel prices, that inflation was non-existent and thus SS payments remained constant in dollar amounts while going down in actual value), I actually quit work at the age of 60 because I found out that by a varied combination of government benefits, I could actually get more income by sitting on my duff than by working 40 hours a week. At that point, it stopped bothering me so much that a cheeseburger costs $12 because Uncle Sam was picking up the tab. Until, that is, they banned the purchase of cheeseburgers in the interests of cutting National Health Service costs.

I did get some exercise from the age of about 57 on because the government mandates on fuel efficiency priced me out of automobile ownership. This resulted in a great deal of walking on my part as the inefficient bus system provided by government didn’t get me to where I needed to be when I needed to be there. I moved out of the suburbs and in to the city center because at least there were stores closer to home: on the other hand, I had to pay higher prices for the basics because government policy was to forbid “big box” stores in the area because they provided “unfair” competition to the small shops.

I found as I entered my 50′s that food was harder to obtain – the price kept rising and there kept being less of it. Various agricultural policies were taking more farm land out of production while various taxes were making the production and consumption of things like beef out of the question. I was given Supplementary Food Insurance which allowed me to buy whole grain bread, government cheese and all the potatoes I could eat.

I got a boost to my health as I gave up cigarette smoking when the banned it outdoors, where I did most of my smoking. Also, even buying generic smokes at the Indian reservation was running me $80 a carton. On the other hand, I found out that ‘Capulco Gold Lights were an admirable substitute, though they did make things a bit hazy; on the plus side, I was permitted to fire up a joint even indoors at work!

My initial reaction to this post was that Noonan was suffering from eating to many sour grapes. However, there is something more deeper and more telling about this post than first met my eyes. The writer is clearly anguished that his worldview has been rejected, in clear electoral terms, by million of people in the United States of America. Terrans like Mr Noonan believed that the election of 2008 and the attendant social struggles that have been championed by the Democratic Party [steps toward single payer health care, tax relief for the middle class, gay rights, worker’s rights, women’s reproductive rights and pay equality] was an historical outlier driven by the desire for minorities and liberal voters to elect the first man of color to the highest office in the land. They did that and nearly immediately forces in the conservative power camp lept into the fray with hundreds of millions of dollars to give birth to the TEA Party which was able to disguise bigotry behind a hood of lowering taxes for the middle class.

Of course, it is well realized now that this was not only a waste of treasure by the Kochs and Adelsons of American conservatism but also a group delusion on the part of their lesser heeled followers. All of the lies failed in the end for the conservatives refused to admit the clearest of truths–their numbers are smaller than the numbers of the coalition built by liberals. Plainly, the right does not know how to attract blacks, gays, Latinos or women to their ranks because their policies have a negative impact on these groups and they will continue to do so as they triple down and move more to the Right.

Noonan believes he will die from the lack of health care to which he can be exposed due to ObamaCare in 2041 at the age of 77. More than likely Mr Noonan will die of stupidity and fear long before that if he continues to believe that his worldview has a national following large enough to have a majority in both houses of Congress. Noonan is angry that his beliefs have been rejected by the voting public and to be fair we likely would have seen a similar reaction from liberals had Obama lost the election. That die has been cast; the American people have spoken and Noonan and the Religious Right and the TEA Party bigots still are far more free than virtually anyone in opposition politically anywhere else on Terra.

The suffering for Mr Noonan must be horrible. His wishes of a Cold War apocalypse where his End Times beliefs would come to fruition were dashed so he joined in the worship of conservatism’s only deity–Ronald Reagan. Years later his own religion was exposed as corrupt as countless priests were found guilty of the sexual abuse of children not only abroad but in the United States. Then comes the criminal behavior of the Bush administration post 9/11 to restrict freedom strictly out of fear that corporations and the wealthy would flee and America bombarded with terror attacks. Now Noonan is staring down a recovery for which a liberal government can take credit with a man of color at the helm. These are dark times for the man who feels that America is devolving into communism when actually what is happening is America is becoming just socialist enough to assure that capitalists continue to be prosperous. As a demon journalist I wish for Mark Edward Noonan, our American cousin, two things, that he have a long life so he can witness all the prosperity to come and that he live in interesting times.

CLINT EASTWOOD’S DISRESPECTFUL PERFORMANCE HAILED BY ROMNEY CAMPAIGN; MARCO RUBIO MAKES HIS PITCH FOR 2016

Posted in 2012 US ELECTION, CLINT EASTWOOD, DIANE VALENCEN OPINIONS, MITT ROMNEY, PRESIDENT OBAMA with tags , , , , on 31/08/2012 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

This was the response by the Romney campaign to Clint Eastwood’s “performance” in Tampa last night:

“Judging an American icon like Clint Eastwood through a typical political lens doesn’t work. His ad libbing was a break from all the political speeches, and the crowd enjoyed it. He rightly pointed out that 23 million Americans out of work or underemployed is a national disgrace and it’s time for a change.”

I honestly can’t accept that. Had Tina Fey gone out and done that this year with McCain and Palin elected in 2008 there would have been tears of blood running out of the eyes from Right leaning pundits all across the Internet. Eastwood referred to the sitting President as “Mr. Obama” more than a half dozen times and while I am no stickler for grammar I am one for protocol in a political setting. In a moment where the GOP was despearate to show that they are an inclusive party, Eastwood’s 2012 Pocono Comedy Club Summer Act reeked of Jim Crow bigotry, disrespect for the office of President of the United States and took all the positive message of the RNC video that preceeded him out of the minds of not only journalists and pundits, but moderate and undecided votes who were watching.

And those voters were watching at a little after 10 pm on the east coast of the United States expecting to see the Mitt Romney accept the GOP nomination and give the speech that would set the tone for the next two months of his campaign. Instead of what would have been a powerful transition from the RNC film to darkness and then Romney bathed in a spotlight walking across the convention floor to take the stage America was treated to a bigoted Vaudeville act followed by a self promoting speech for the 2016 nomination by America’s most desperate Latino politician Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

What a shame. If this is the way the GOP is going to run their race for the next two months American voters will be treated to a few very well staged debated surrounded by the Romney campaign in a constant battle to stay ahead of what surrogates say on his behalf. The race is on and after the Republican convention we can only hope that America’s undecided take not of the diversity that will be on display in Charlotte on the floor as well as on the stage.

WHAT THE HELL WAS CLINT EASTWOOD THINKING?

Posted in 2012 US ELECTION, CLINT EASTWOOD with tags , , , , on 30/08/2012 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

I have to agree with Rachel Maddow that the speech, if I can it that, given by Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention tonight was one of the most appalling things I have ever seen in my life. That this great actor and director would come out into a convention hall packed with people who hold some of the most retrograde ideas and mock the sitting President of the United States makes me wonder about the sanity of those running the Romney campaign. That Eastwood would suggest that Obama just step away and let Romney take over was yet another dog whistle, a code phrase that I am sure got whoops and hollers in the rural outposts of bigotry in my former nation. That he would imply that the President would tell Romney to “go fuck yourself” made me physically ill. I don think Clint Eastwood deserves a pass for his age for this nor do the merchants of bigotry that handle the Romney campaign.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
