Social Media Freedom Day

Featured

Declared October 31, 2019,

I hope and believe all News and commentators, print or broadcast would stand with us, as we will always support their right of freedom from censorship, coercion, or bullying by corporations or other entities. This should be a day of solidarity and celebrations. God bless America and our experiment in Democracy for and by the people.

Facebook and other social media have evolved from corporate content, to that of a public Arena, for the expression of diverse opinions and ideas, with the same Constitutional protection of the right for Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of the Press.

This is not an Ad or promoted writing.

It’s not an advertisement for or against any candidate, official, or political party.

The House has been involved in their phony impeachment goat rope, to the seclusion of their legitimate responsibility, they have avoided their unique power in the passing of a budget for the smooth and efficient operations of our government. They have violated their role as one of the three branches of the American government. Should they be impeached, censured or otherwise held accountable. Yes! They went on recess, evidently not concerned the Government budget continuing resolution ends in November.

I really would like to know why a group of politicians who aren’t very impressive public figures, think they are more capable of investigating President Trump, than Mueller, and the full resources of the FBI. It’s silly actually, it’s like Nancy Drew following up on Sherlock Holmes.

America is tired of this political fake mud slinging, and would like for our government to get back to work and function cooperatively, for the good of the United States.

Yet the house, has started its own tribal warfare involvement, and regime change quagmire, that they will not be able to walk away from with any dignity or positive results. Their only recourse is to humble themselves, in front of their lofty and Once proud place as the Representatives of the American people, of whom they owe accountability.

This country went mad with Donald Trump’s defeat of Hillary, and sanity remains elusive, to the detriment of Democracy, and the unity of one Nation.

This article stands on Free Speech, in the Bill of Rights. Liberi Press is a private cyber media or News reporting entity.

Claiming all rights of any print or broadcast media, and under the protection of our Constitution, having been defended many times in front of the Supreme Court, by courageous news organizations. We are not China, Hong Kong, Russia or Iran. Our civil rights far exceeds their repression and abuse of their wards.

Facebook must have a paradigm shift and realize, while it began as a corporate entity, it has evolved as a Twenty First Century first, a public arena for the expression of diverse ideas and opinions, with equal protection under the Constitution. And not subject to Facebook censorship or manipulations, unless possibly a clear violation of law, as does any magazine, Broadcast, or Newspaper.

Facebook owns the cover, but the people now own the content.

Again, I Declare October 31, 2019, as Social Media Freedom Day.

The Answer is blowing in the Wind

Featured
Hawk or Dove, Capitalist or Marxist, What do Democrats believe.

REPRINT October 31

Now that Trump has withdrawn Troops from Syria, it is stirring outrage among Democrat Leadership.

On Feb. 1, Trump tweeted: “I inherited a total mess in Syria and Afghanistan, the “Endless Wars” of unlimited spending and death. During my campaign I said, very strongly, that these wars must finally end.

Latest polls reflect around 50 % disagree with Trumps withdraw and over 30% agree with Trump. DEMOCRATS!

Endless Wars

The five other lawmakers who joined Ocasio-Cortez, Sanders and Warren as the first supporters of the “End the Forever War” pledge were: Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., and Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis……” “…“I pledge to the people of the United States of Americaact to bring the Forever War to a responsible and expedient conclusion… “

The House voted 251 to 170, with 27 Republicans joining all but seven DemocratsRep. Ro Khanna (Calif.), the Democratic leader in the effort, put it, the vote was a “clear statement from members of Congress on both sides of the aisle that this country is tired of endless wars

“In major foreign policy addresses, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg have echoed that call, as has former vice president Joe Biden, who, in an otherwise lackluster speech, pledged to end the “forever wars…” https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/07/16/transpartisan-revolt-against-americas-endless-wars/

Is this how they really feel?

“This decision is a betrayal of our ally in the fight against ISIS and risks American lives,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said in a tweet. “We have a president who is telling our allies and our adversaries that America doesn’t keep her word.”

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) also criticized the move, calling it “erratic.” 

“progressive Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who have been critical of U.S. involvement in the Middle East, warned the decision would lead to chaos.”

“The Answer is blowing in the Wind”

Actually the answer is which ever way the wind blows, so do the democrat blowhards blow. If you are for peace, and really want to stop endless wars, you should support this policy, regardless of what your opinion of the President is. It’s more important to our future than politics.

Blessed are the Peacemakers

Featured

The United States has spent EIGHT TRILLION DOLLARS fighting and policing in the Middle East. Thousands of our Great Soldiers have died or been badly wounded. Millions of people have died on the other side. GOING INTO THE MIDDLE EAST IS THE WORST DECISION EVER MADE….. (President Trump)

President Trump ordered 1000 US troops out of Syria in October 2019, and said he was keeping his pledge to end the forever wars in the Mideast. The troops haven’t returned home and are still in the area. If he is truly for peace in the Mideast and to end Forever Wars, then he will prove that when he begins real withdraws out of Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and all Mideastern nations. He should do this quickly. Now. He’s already got the criticism.

When President Johnson (Democrat) ordered the removal of troops from South Vietnam, we deserted our allies. We knew they would be defeated quickly, and the consequences against National and Military Leaders would be severe. It was anything but an orderly withdrawal, it was chaotic. After the collapse of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam war, it has been estimated over 200,000 South Vietnamese were sent to re-education camps and 30,000 were beheaded from a CIA informant list. (Wikipedia)

Thus as America’s dark half of Congress criticizes and morns for the Kurd’s, it is obviously politics, continued since 2016. The dark media has of course followed. The Military-Industrial complex has followed, as we hear from retired Generals and military officers. Congress is certainly being lobbied intensely by Defense Contractors. Our enemies in the Mideast area will try to pull us back into Mideast war; Russia, Iran, ISIS, other Terrorist and other enemies. The fearful Arab nations will also.

Regardless of his actions, President Trump will be severely attacked. Pardon my crudeness but; If President Trump took a dump, Schumer would yell; “Its to little to late, Nancy Pelosi would cry, “what will our allies think of us now”, Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, The FOUR will Chorus; “He will leave the area in Chaos. Candidate Joe Biden will promise, “No member in my administration will ever take a dump.” Sanders will say, “taking a dump is a selfish elitist action. Elizabeth Warren will swear, “I have never taken a dump, and give you my word I never will.”

The Democrats React
PEACE

Hatred, war, violence, fear are all hardwired into our Tribal instincts of survival. It takes little effort to call them up, they remain ready to attack anyone or any people who are not in our perceived Tribe. However, Peace, Love, Compassion, Kindness, Altruism; these seem to be not of a natural origin.

Our awareness of them comes suddenly without effort, they just seem to appear in our Consciousness out of the ether or elsewhere. While many species of animals do demonstrate emotions or instinct we would consider as these qualities. However, Humans are the only ones who have built enduring cities, Kingdoms, and Nations. Feeling an affinity for people 1000 miles away. (Except Whales, and who knows about them, they may be gods.)

GOOD AND EVIL

We recall our immediate past of those leaders who personify Good and Evil.

Evil: Pot Poi, Kim Jong-Il, Himmler, Mulrad Sultan, King Leopold, Emperor Hirohito, HRC
Considered Good: Chief Little Raven, Martin Luther King jr., Mother Theresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama, Lincoln, Jesus.

We must support any peace initiative. It will be extremely difficult for President Trump to maintain his proclaimed intention to end the Forever wars in the Mideast. The start of peace and the end of peace are often very messy. As I’ve written previously, our culture, glorifies war and violence, We have recently been paying the price for it. For the good of our children, the children of the world, and the future of mankind; We Must Give Peace A Chance.

Is American Democracy Dying

Featured

Has our Constitution expired?

(A Follow On Piece To This Previous Post is coming soon. Reading This Piece Fresh In Your Mind, Will make the follow on click right in place.)

Many now believe an Elite mob controls most of the money in the US and use the money for power, political power. A large majority of Americans don’thave trust in America’s major Institutions. Congress, the President, Education, The Media, and Large Corporations. The gulf between the wealthy and the other 90 % of Americans is staggering.

Our Media is owned by Five major corporations, 90% of the information provided to us is from these Five corporations. It has become so obvious that the Liberal, Progressive, and Anti-Trump Agenda is promoted 24/7 by these Five. Usually using the same narrative on every issue. Journalism has been replaced by entertainment for advertising money. Thus, our ability to make informed decisions has hoodwinked all of us.

Since this Power and Control is greatest on congress, we expect no laws coming forth to control it.

We must break the dominance of the top 10%, by breaking up their monopolies, resulting in targeted lobbying and resulting in the control and corruption of our congress. We cannot depend on our existing institutions, especially congress to make any substantial remedy for America bound, Kidnapped, and Extorted by the Elite.

Campaign Finance law and rules must-be totally shredded, and replaced with democracy protection, and a new People Campaign finance.

We need a New Constitutional Convention, to update our constitution to reflect the lessons we’ve learned in the last 200+ years. To strengthen our Democracy. Protect us from Oligarchs, and an encroaching; Plutocrat government.

Not a redistribution of wealth, or to kill incentives, nor reduce investments. If the Elite think this is so, too bad, we need to reclaim democracy and end the Plutocracy creep with all their advantages, and privilege, they have woven into this American abomination.

It’s not white privilege, it’s aristocratic privilege. America’s wage earners and middle classes are all being pushed back from the table.

Consider; John Biden’s son, Hunter, as a typical Aristocrat. Given the advantages of a Yale education, Naval Reserve officer, joined a major law firm, then he was mysteriously chosen to be on the board of an Ukraine Oil company, who was expected to get a windfall of prosperity, as America had assured them assistance to vastly increase their oil production after Russia had recently cut them off.

Then his firm, somehow landed a 1 1/2 Billion dollar account in a Chinese bank, controlled by the Chinese government. Just three weeks after Joe Biden visited China, representing the US Government. Hunter was on their board also, with an estimated $500,000 share in the fund being set up. John Kerry’s stepson was also a board member. The good ole boys are now the aristocracy.

The Aristocracy class, with their families have a clear advantage. Also a clear advantage for corruption, graft, and disloyalty. Free, and protected from criminal suspensions or called out by media or party. This is privilege!

The following polls and data will help you see the seriousness of America’s slide. I fully expect the Elite, with their Power and Money domination, if not checked will move quickly further, tightening control on populace opinions, a pretense to increase restriction of out freedoms, and virtual slavery of the wage class, through the 90% of Americans.

Power Corrupts. Then Corrupts more. Corruption spreads like am invisible plague. We may see the rise of,

“BIG MOTHER – 2024”.

HOW TO CALL A CONSTITUION CONVENSION

The familiar part of Article V of the Constitution states thatCongress, with the two-thirds approval of both the House and the Senate, canpropose amendments to the Constitution, subject to ratification bythree-fourths of the states. But there is a second path: “on the applicationof the legislatures” of two-thirds of the states, Congress “shall call a conventionfor proposing amendments,” the amendments being subject to ratification bythree-fourths of the states.

The polarization of America almost 50/50, lack of ourcongress to work together, Violent and provocative speech by Congress and thePresident. The inability to get true and timely information from our media, whohas also turned up the rhetoric. They have all been irresponsible and blind tothe danger they are putting our democracy in. All of this could, and I believewill lead to great violence in America. Possibly a revolution of some scope.

It can start with two-thirds of the state legislatures. Bypassing our current political swamp, media betrayal, and the Elites. But the Elites will not go down without a fight, so this most be a populous and grass roots effort. We need respected and well-known leaders, unencumbered by politics or Elitist. Who are you! Where are you! Here the call of our forefathers! God bless America.

The Globalization Of America

Featured

I am a man of peace and never recommend violence

Again due to the tragic events by Nancy Pelosi, The Global Elites, and Media Oligarchs will continue their attempt at a regime change in America.

I feel impelled to respond, and divert from my sites mission. However, America has been a true light to the world, and since 2016, it can only be described as the darkest evil placing its growing shadow over our land.

Certainly our courageous, Commander and Chief, and his beautiful family may be expected to become weary and discouraged. But they have showed nothing but strength and courage.

We must lift them up in our prayers, organized speeches, and peaceful nation wide protest. We need a grass roots movement with financial support as the Zombies got from Soros and World wide Globalist.

Stand up for America, against this symbol of the whore of Babylon and the Anti-Christ. Stand up for our President and America.

Trump impeachment is a disgrace to American democracy. It is so obviously a blatant political move, supported by the 5 Elite owned media corporations. The destroyers of the truth and diverse, and opposing views. A FREE PRESS!

The Zombie media continues to follow the pack toward chaos, lies, and an agenda the pinochle media spews and likely isn’t privy to the circle of Power.

Corrupted and bought politicians, dependent on campaign contributions as a calfs, directed focus on his mother’s teats describes our legislators.

Clinton Legacy

The cabal of media oligarchs turned a blind eye to; Clinton selling 90% of US uranium to Russian owned company. Whose CEO of the company is good friends with Clinton’s, who often used his private Jet. He also was connected to the Clinton Foundation and a heavy donor.

Joe Biden’s legacy

The media fat capitalist also ignored, Biden’s threat to withhold a billion dollars of US aid, if his son, who was under scrutiny, and a board member of the very company being investigated by the Ukraine AG wasn’t fired immediately.

The two year investigation by the then Attorney General of Ukraine, would be required to be fired to secure the aid package.

No explanation has been given. What was Biden’s son doing on a Ukraine corporations board, how was he hired, paid, and what was his qualifications.

It just so happens that Ukraine was one of the two European nations Obama assigned Biden to assist, counsel, and observe. Is it a coincidence his son was hired by a Ukraine company?

An offer Ukraine could not refuse, “fire the AG investigating my sons company, or I, Joe Biden. am personally going to see you do not get the $Billion aid from the US. Tell me by 6 PM or the deal is off.

Quid pro quo so obvious somebody who just watched Judge Judy would get it. Nepotism, corruption, immoral, a gangster move and total shame for America and her reputation.

Hillary’s Legacy

While sect of State, HRC was in Russia negotiating with the Oligarchs in the development of a Russian Silicon Valley, with 25 US High Tech companies who all but two contributed heavily to the Clinton Foundation.

Bill was making speeches in Russia for $1 million.

The Pentagon was uncomfortable with the possible military use of our technology being given away. No coverage of this either.

This was never on the media, never investigated. Soros and Global Elites are making a move to force US support of Globalism.

HRC was heavily supported and would have started the process. Trump trashed their plans and a global conspiracy has tried to remove him since 2016.

Hillary Clinton received 75% more in campaign contributions than Trump. She had serious medical problems, fainted often, and was unhinged in temper and outburst, told by those who knew her. She still took beating from Donald Trump, say it again, Trump whipped her arse.

Our national sovereignty is at stake. This has all been a coup attempt by Global Elites, Soros, Obama, Clinton’s, Nancy Pelosi, and certain EU nations.

Germany is likely spearheading the EU support, continuing their long tradition of Power madness and chaos addiction. Nazism and White supremacy scum are on a fast track rise in Rhineland.

Patriotic America Legacy

US patriots must stand against this attack on America, Trump, and democracy,

The dark corrupt plague on America must be met and sanitized.

This is a world war, and a clear and present danger to the American people. You will become impoverished slaves of the Global Elites, who will strip away our natural resources.

Just as these same families of imperialist did to the entire continent of Africa, a continent pushed away from hope of future prosperity.

America will become a depleted skeleton, a historical footnote. A sunken Atlantis, never to rise again.

This metamorphosis to a Plutarch Government, will put their iron boots down on the middle class, poor, and everyone not of their anointing.

I am a man of peace and never recommend violence.

The American Plutocracy

Below are a lot of figures of who’s on first and who’s outfield. I called America a Plutocracy; a government ran by the rich. Money and Power are often the same. These are the Elites who control our political parties, our representatives and senators, the PACS, the organizations and corporations. Thus they control who get’s elected and the elected if they want re-election. This must all be stripped away. All of it. PACS Gone. Organizations and Corporation donors gone, donations to parties, and parties and other candidates’ donations. All that should remain is individual donors and a severe limit on this.

This is the only way to break up the Plutocracy from controlling our government. If congress cannot fix their own house we should tear their house down. Vote everyone out. No incumbents. Just say NO!

The next thing to strip this Elite shadow government or Plutocracy is severe Anti-Trust legislation. No exceptions. Including Media, Energy, Banks, Transportation, every privately-owned organization. It’s happened in the past with the railroads, Standard Oil, and Bell Telephone come to mind. If we want to get our country back this as a minimum must be done. This is not negotiable in a democracy or a representative republic.

If you haven’t noticed the Elite controlling our nation, then you aren’t paying attention. Of course the media is controlling the information you get, and the Plutocracy is trying to keep you occupied with “bread and circuses” (Fat and Happy or a diversion)

I’m not calling for storming the capital, anarchy, Bernie Sanders Socialism, or Marxism. I’m calling for Democracy Now!

Look over the numbers, and see what you see.

Voting For Democrats

Featured

My grandmother, from Savannah Georgia, always voted Democrat. Any conversation always led back to The Great Depression.

I ask my dad, who was a loyal member of a national Trade Union. His response was simply; The Democrats are for the working man, Republicans look after the rich.

Wasn’t President Lincoln a Republican?

From a Member of the Obama Coalition

Obama is a racist without a doubt If he believes this, to feel Trump was somehow connected to election of a black president followed by election of a white President? Is this Obama’s view.

Obama’s disappointing performance as the first Black President, certainly hurt Hillary’s campaign.

What is so amazing is many Americans automatically vote Democrat, when it’s so obvious their vote is taken for granted and with no benefit received.

From elder white southerners who’s families were staunch democrats since Franklin Roosevelt.

Trade unionists who have seen their plants close, from trade agreements supported by the Democratic Party.

With our media information 90% supporting the Democrat party, it’s unlikely for Americans to know the truth. A early warning on this from our founding fathers.

Finally, the election of America’s first Black President, which I initially supported. And after 8 years to see Black America has greater, unemployment, lower wages, no prison, or effort for police education and reform.

Look around at the Black communities in most American largest cities. Are they better off after 8 years from a Black Democrat President. He was always more Democrat than black.

It’s time that many Americans rethink, those who vote straight democrat every election as if they had no choice.

You have a choice, it will be difficult to become an informed voter with most media obviously practically part of the Democratic Party.

And any conflicting opinions labeled as right wingers, racist, or Nazi’s.

Quit being the Democratic parties door mat. Make them earn your vote or vote for someone else or boycott the vote.

DO WE NEED A NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Featured

*Forget A Civil War, We need A New American Revolution Washington Post, May 29, 2018, by John Ferling

This was an editorial by the Washington Post, over a year ago. I was of course suspicious by that alone. However, it appears almost on target.

Before the American revolution the English representatives were hereditary or despotic. Keeping the same elite aristocracy as the major representatives for all the people.

The middle tier, farmers, labors were very under represented. As the cost for a seat in the USA costs $1 million to $10 million. With SUPER PACS and major donations coming from the wealthy Elite. Who through their purse strings actually control congress.

Thus we have the same Oligarchs as pre- revolution England.

Our congress has become so polarized, set in a time loop of continuous, intrigue, looking for corruption everywhere but in their own house. Thus they are polarized, paralyzed, tigers chasing their own tales.

The English and some US constitutional writers, fear of a too powerful executive branch over the legislative branch is a fact, because the legislature is truly the Circus in America’s government, not Donald Trump.

Another similarity with resistance to English rule was perpetual war. The latest period of wars in the Mideast – Desert Storm 1990, Invasion of Afghanistan 2001, Invasion of Iraq 2004. You could say the troops on the ground and terrorism recruiting as a result, has created a 19 year war, unless you consider state sponsored terrorism beginning in 1990. Thus a 30 year war.

As an afterthought, consider reading Jack London’s “Iron Heal” published one 1904. He did write other books than about dogs. “The Call of the Wild “ was likely one of the first books that got me hooked on reading, no matter how much of a juvenile delinquent I became, I always read.

I don’t necessarily agree we need a revolution, but our government needs to be grabbed by the collar and given a good shaking.

The anger, frustration, politicians destabilizing, and the polarization may actually cause a revolution or a period of nationwide violence with devastating results. Someone or some many, need to start showing restraint and consider doing what’s best for all Americans, and our democracy.

Bread and Circuses

Featured

The following is off topic for this blog. Yet, it may be worth considering or it may be worth rejecting like UFO’s.

The Elite and Shadow government give us bread and circuses to keep us content and controlled. (something, as extravagant entertainment, offered as an expedient means of pacifying discontent or diverting attention from a source of grievance.)


Consider what is the bread and circuses of 2019. It is definitely of greater complexity and diversity than when it was first scratched in Ancient Rome.


Don’t eat the bread or go to the circuses. Possible suspects for now, is politics, candidates, democracy, entertainment, and opposition media; such as MSNBC and FOX. Both being bread or circuses for their respective prey.


Live simply, analyze everything cheap or free, and not of your own unpredictable choice.

Think outside, the outside and conclude the un-obvious, beyond the fringe. Look content from consumption.

Paranoia is an artificial barrier. Set your mind free. (I am taking my meds.)

The above picture shows the success of Rome’s attempt to pacify their citizens with Bread and Circus’s. (Colosseum’s, Gladiator’s, etc. ) They fell from foreign invasions, as Rome weakened from the corruption of the elite and the government the elite corrupted. Their failure to inspire and strengthen their citizens as they stunted their personal growth, blocked exceptionalism, induced a lazy, unmotivated, and produced content citizens to mediocrity.

An added factor in America’s Elite Revolution is chaos, anger, division, hate, polarization, and total information and entertainment control.

Left, Right, Socialism, Fascism, Racism, and an overflow of immigrants, are not movements. They are chaos and control.

There are not many wise, honest, strong, and fearless men and women in America today to turn this revolution that began many years ago. I’d be totally surprised to see one such leader in America to confront this.

I’m not a prophet and speak from history not inspiration. Awaken America, it’s our only hope.
