“Then there was the educated Texan from Texas who looked like someone in Technicolor and felt, patriotically, that people of means – decent folk – should be given more votes than drifters, whores, criminals, degenerates, atheists and indecent folk – people without means.”Joseph Heller

General Miller versus President Trump - Hero or Traitor?

General Miller: Subordination or Hero? (14-Sept-2021) on washingtontimes.com website.

Simple binaries: "Preventing a war is easy to determine. Did Trump try to launch one?? If yes, the general is a hero. If no, doesn't matter how suspicious Pelosi or the generals were of Trump, it's no justification for refusing to withdraw from Afghanistan. Did Trump send the memo for withdrawal? If yes, the general needs to be court martialed. If no, where is the story here? It evaporates as another smokescreen wasting everyone's time while the upward wealth transfer continues and the poor continue to get f****d."


Government Decisions by Corporate State

The formula for what our governing authorities do is very simple. Their true aim, let’s not forget, is continuous upward wealth transfer – from taxpayer and treasury to the elite stakeholders and the corporate donor class (same people mostly).

Day to day the job of corporate-state government is to manage the most profitable balance of immediate, ongoing and future revenue extraction with consolidating short-term authority and long-term power - without either power or profit facing disruption by mob insurrection. The management formula includes certain precepts: minimum spending on social provision, maximum upward wealth appropriation, and a merciless exploitation of the public for as much work (precarity), as much money (austerity) and as much debt (liquidity) as possible.

Play each and every official government-CDC-FDA public health decision through the above formula. It is the ubiquitous explanation for the two years of pandemic opportunism, from the first headlines about Wuhan and cruise ships infected by a novel coronavirus in February 2020 to the latest Christmas 2021 clickbait peddling booster vaccines against hyper-infectious Omicron variants. All public policy is made to serve the same completely consistent objective.


Government Fascism: Authoritarian Plan or Path of Least Resistance?

"It's funny. Governments certainly have a path of least resistance that routes via control. At times. Guys like Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, Aaron Swartz, Chelsea Manning exposed deep state (intelligence agencies) and military (deployed into danger - however unjust the politicians doing the deploying) and information (knowledge and science hoarded behind paywalls). Couldn't these guys be good, correct and worthy of government defending their individual rights while at the same time recognising their persecution is a revenge by deep state (military, intelligence agencies, etc) for putting their colleagues into harm's way? Principles like freedom of information are for civilian public servants to parse and apply. The path of least resistance (most likely, most not unreasonable) for the deep state is to defend their team of coworkers. Team CIA, Team FBI, Team USM, Team USN, Team MI6, Team GCHQ, Team US Congress, Team DNC, etc etc. Assange, Snowden et al attacked an extended family - even if it is a sinister, shadowy, over-powerful, unaccountable bunch of bastards - so the whistleblowers are getting fucked to settle the score, to make an example, etc. It's a trite explanation but perhaps more likely than risky, fatiguing prospect of a small group of well connected corrupt conspirators puppet mastering an entire country (or world) hegemony. In any case, it's up to the public servants (judges, lawyers, government elected politicians and so on) to play their role in the social contract: defend the public interest, safeguard individual rights, fiat justitia."
