Fascist Sellouts

2010 7-27 Missoula, MTFive weeks before the welcome end of the worst American Presidency in the history of the republic, el jeffe Bush did his best to go down as the Herbert Hoover of the new century, announcing with glee his traitorous plan to allow an “orderly bankruptcy” of the Big 3 American auto manufacturers - companies which formed the backbone of American industry since the early 1900′s.

Simultaneous to this Crown-inspired treason, Southern Senate Republicans - well-paid by the foreign auto-makers who have flocked to their retrograde states to avoid paying union wages - concurred.  These are the very same people who parade around Washington playing “super patriot” when it comes to bombing civilian populations and feeding the military-industrial complex.  But a ribbon on the bumper of your SUV doesn’t do shit for our misplaced troops, one of whom is my best friend whose convoy was attacked near Ramadi two years ago.

The big talkers from down South showed their true colors.  They were ready to sacrifice the last vestige of America industry - one of the manufacturing prospects left since these same Republicans busied themselves passing “free-trade” agreements which have gutted our nation’s industrial sector.  It was not enough to give multinationals tax breaks to move jobs overseas.  Now they wanted to take down the only decent union jobs left in America - jobs that accounted for only 10% of the Big Three budget.

This is pure Rush Limbaugh: Crown-inspired serfdom masquerading as “free market” ideology.  It is a further race to the bottom for living standards of working people.  We need more good-paying union jobs in this country, not less.

Despite two months of revelations about Wall Street corruption and the failure of deregulating Big Business, these Southern traitors still didn’t get it.  They gave JP Morgan Chase, et al access to a $750 billion giveaway, but when American workers who actually made shit needed a loan of $15 billion they blamed those very workers.  These people who had nothing to do with the demise of American industry were pummeled every step of the “free market” way.  These Southern shills will conjure up the memory of John Calhoun when history makes its final judgment.

Thirty years of “free-market think” produced a mindset among Americans that it is the poor who get the government handouts.  Yet if one looks at history they will see that it is the oligarchy that has always gotten the free lunch.  The latest banker bailout was only the latest installment of this saga.

All one has to do is to look at various government agencies and you will see how the super-rich get the vast majority of benefits from our collective tax dollars.  Take the SEC, which supposedly polices Wall Street.  They are there to regulate for the investor class.  The poor get nothing.  What about the FAA, which regulates air travel?  Do you know many poor families who fly once a week?  Well the rich sometimes fly every day.  Or what about the Coast Guard?   When was the last time a poor person owned a barge that needed rescuing, or a speed boat, or a yacht?  The Department of Agriculture writes the biggest checks each year to the biggest farmer.  The Department of Energy aids and abets ExxonMobil.  The Pentagon deploys force to protect the property of the shareholders of multinational corporations.  Then Halliburton shareholders get more government money to clean up the mess.

Not too many poor folks getting a handout here.

Yet many Americans continue to blame the poor for the shake down of the middle class by the Money Power.  This vital piece of propaganda, delivered to you daily by Limbaugh and Fox News on behalf of the taxpayer-subsidized oligarchy, continues to divide us.  This enables the Illuminati to more easily control us.  This mindset must change if America is to climb out of the abyss.

What I have just laid out is the very basis for progressive taxation.  The super-rich should pay more taxes because they GET more from government.  Under FDR the super-rich paid income tax at a rate of 90%.  Even as recently as the Nixon Administration, they paid at a rate of 72%.  Now, Warren Buffett’s own secretary pays the same rate as he does, while if state and local taxes are included, the poor pay a GREATER percentage than the Rockefellers, who mostly pay nothing at all by utilizing off-shore tax havens and foundations.

It is absurd that these Illuminati shills who whine on about their rich idols have any shred of credibility.  Wake up!

  1. Dean, you made some darn good points here. But as for

    “Under FDR the super-rich paid income tax at a rate of 90%.”

    a reminder that the economy never caught fire under FDR’s (and his whizz kids’) policies. That it took a war to do the job.

    The answer is not to ‘soak the rich’. Nor to create a welfare state (for both the poor and the rich). The answer is to move out of the paradigm of ‘debt’ -of interest-bearing money – en toto. And move up a notch in consciousness. To live in a state of being where people share their goods and services with one another – and give of their best in the process – out of a higher motive than the age-old one of ‘profit’. Out of the highest motive that there could ever be: out of gratitude to their Creator for life with meaning. Out of, in a word: Love.

    And THEN we will see an answer – THE answer – to our aches and ills of a society.

    Of a world.

    That is trying to live by half-truths.

    • FDR laid the foundation that later allowed the economy to take off – rural electricication, CCC, unions, Social Security. Not because he wanted to, but because he had to. Wobblies, Eugene Debs & others said so. Period. Quit defending the rich. It’s pathetic. The trillionaire trough-feeders should take your advice and start sharing the pie (love and all that), or it’s pitchforks for the motherfuckers…

    • kibitzer3…please recall that the oligarchs, described by Dean, contracted the money supply to foster the greater depression and then used their leverage with politicians to initiate World War 2. The expansion and contraction of the money supply is a time tested methodology to consolidate wealth. You build a business and then I buy it for pennies on the dollar when the time is right. When they finished squeezing the blood from the turnips, i.e you and me, then start a world war for some honest for goodness destruction, which requires guns, bullets, helmets, boots, fatigues and not to mention some very expensive toys that actually do not work. After the war, we rebuild and start the whole madness over again.
      The problem is that all of us have been fed garbage for the last fifty years ( or ever since 1913?). Just sorting through the manure will take time and have its own unique consequences and detours.

    • Hi Kibitzer.

      I love you. Please share with me your bank account number and let me borrow a couple of your credit cards. I could really use the help!

  2. “Yet many Americans continue to blame the poor for the shake down of the middle class by the Money Power. ”

    Well, yes–throughout history the people least able to defend themselves are usually the ones who get blamed, simply because they are the least able. Never mind that, for instance, bad subprime mortgages only made up 4% of the mortgage market as of late 2007. It must’ve been all the subprime folks’ fault, righty-o.

  3. The stock market is still being drawn down with earned cash equity morphing into bird cage liner. The people of the U.S. are hypnotized by phony absolution and the myth of a promise vended by the CFRtv. People labor all day, then watch swill, all the while believing the four lies all mothers tell their children when the children are preoccupied with sudden feelings of foreboding. God love mothers but they all tell these lies. That the subject child is perfect, safe, pretty(or handsome), and smart. At this time in American history, millions upon millions of adult faces are stuck to the CFRtv screen like houseflies to a trap. Wake up tyros. Get loose quick. Here comes the grim reaper. Absolution is a myth to get you to free your self from everything decent your parents taught you..

  4. The bumper sticker: “Eat The Rich” was long ago preempted by the rich, namely Andy Warhol in the sixties, when he applied to the City Of New York for a permit to serve aborted human fetuses in his restaurant. The rich have been attacking the poor, both physically and psychologically, for thousands of years, since the advent of the Age Of Kali some 5,000 years ago. Try stuffing a camel through the eye of a needle, and you’ll get an idea of their incorrigibility.

  5. Dean,
    I have alot of respect for you, your knowledge and work. I have promoted you before you went back to ‘being seen and heard” and will continue to do so. You have seen and lived alot of the World I have not.

    But that respect will grow greater when you drop the Left wing propoganda you seem to be pushing of late along with Gordon Duff in tow. We can argue apples and pears forever, granted the Neocons ruled and still rule the roost, but the damn Dems are following in line. Remember all too well the Clinton years, deregulation, and more? Check the moneis collected w/ HW Bush and the Haiti fund. Barely 20% was ever paid out and none went to worthwhile efforts promised. The rest is drawing interest or in foreign accounts of which they all have many, Obama, Jarrett, Hoilder and cohorts along with the rest. It’s every man/woman for themselves with no party games being elluded to any longer.

    The Right v Left paradigm is a lost cause, and the Hope and Change dogma word for word of Clinton regime speech writers worked to bring in another puppet like all the rest. Hitlery did her dirty work and now gets the AFRICOM award to pillage.
    Our Country is in dire straights. As long as the blame game continues the ability to divide and conquer of the ages will continue to drag us down deeper into total war against one another and not the people responsible or for the better of the US.

    The 6 Billion dollars in Gold Bullion in Libya’s Vault they really bombed Libya and sodomized Gaddafi for is a mere pittance of what they have stolen and more and more Countries are asking, nay demanding their Boullion to which the truth will further prove has been stolen.
    As the true Vatican resignation news sinks in, and the money changers get closer to being exposed, the more desperate they will become enacting possibly the total destruction of Mother Nature , our precious Earth and WWIII.

    I hope I’m completely wrong, I really do.

    • Mr. Wise concurs with this message. Mr. Wise would like to remind everyone that there is always a struggle of good v. evil, truth v. lies. Since both parties lie, they are evil. There is no left or right in this country only good people and corrupted people. Guess which one the middle-class law-abiding, tax payer is? Guess which are the only parties to be singeld out by the DHS as being potentially domestic terrorists? The Libertarians and the Constitutionalists. In other words, the people who stand for truth, goodness and fairness. Has America ever been this upside down?

  6. Great column,but not the title.A Fascist State,which is opposed to the Internationalists prop up manufacturing,and protect it.They also maintain a welfare state,and have the government run the banks.

  7. The 90% rate on top income earners also was in effect under Eisenhower, in the 50′s, the time of America’s most rapid growth and prosperity. You see, the “devil is in the details” that Libertarian types ignore, wailing about “high taxation” without examining the specifics.

    That 90% taxation rate was the CAUSE of the rapid growth (along with the obvious fact we had survived intact the WW II destruction of Germany and Japan and Europe, the very competitors now cleaning America’s industrial clock)..and how did it cause that growth? By having a “loophole”: the 90% rate was reduced by the amount reinvested in manufacturing/industrial infrastructure, encouraging the very wealthy industrialists to reinvest and increase their asset worth.

    Mr. Henderson, I am a bit disappointed you harp on “Republicans” as the ones pushing “Free Trade” agreements gutting our Middle Class by shipping our well-paying jobs overseas: I recall quite clearly listening to Bill Clinton(happily carrying Bush1′s NAFTA water bucket to the well of completion) state that “NAFTA will LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD FOR MEXICAN, CANADIAN and US WORKERS.” In other words, in reality, drag us down to Mexican labor wages eventually. Why do I put that in capital letters?

    Because this creepy Chicago used car salesman named Barrack Obama just said the EXACT SAME WORDING WHILE PUSHING FOR THIS EU-US FREE TRADE AGREEMENT in his SOTA, didn’t he? Indeed, he did.

    May I hear your opinion on that, since the Bush/Cheney criminal cabal has done left the building? Thank you Mr. Henderson. But enough with the Right vs Left, liberal vs conservative, Democrats vs Republican meme: they are all crooked and needing imprisonment, or more. Obama is a Wall Street enabler of Fraud, Theft and worse.

    Yes, you are correct: the last Administration was the worse in history: that is because we must wait until 2016 to replace it with the present one as the worse of all time. They are over-achievers in that regard. I still recall the glowing endorsement Cheney gave Obama’s policies: they are Cheney’s….. on steroids. Tell me again about Obama and Libya…Syria..Yemen.

  8. America has to stop watching ” Honey Boo Boo” and start paying attention to the real problems that are destroying our great country.

  9. Among the rottenest of the rotten traitors are the so-called spiritual leaders/advisers who in reality are handmaidens of the demons they profess to fight against. Cravens who diminish and poison people’s lives as they run interference for demons. They infect more than mere material, their barter being hearts and souls.

    All these willing traitor Priests, Rabbis, Ministers and their unholy acolytes, after finishing their phony spiritual business, will surely reap what they have sown, hoisted on their own petard.

  10. Articles like this are not complete unless they mention the major role of jews (e.g. Ayn Rand philosophy in action).

  11. International banks that fleece the nation are not permitted under fascism.
    NOTHING INTERNATIONAL is permitted in fascism.
    Fundamental difference between fascism and marxism is that one is nationalist and the other is INTERNATIONALIST.
    Fascism supports religion and recognizes God, Marxism is atheistic and de facto worships the state/ J E Ws.
    Further, fascism also doesn’t guarantee equal results from unequal labor Marxism like the USSR… I might mention that just the murder rates of the nation’s citizens is another good indicator.
    Fascism is about A nation and A people; and it is not communistic or internationalist. Fascism is geared to serve the host people and their traditional culture.
    USA is copying the march towards Marxism and not fascism. We are clearly being extorted for international banker goals and Marxist initiatives and dreams of a global totalitarian atheistic agenda of Marxist multiculturalism.

  13. Just happened to run across this article at Global Research, speaking of the Neocons and the “Progressives” who used to be Democrasts ( I was raised one ) found it on topic here
    http://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-and-the-iran-contra-scandal-how-neocons-messed-up-the-mideast/5323076

    His book https://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/1868/t/12126/shop/shop.jsp?storefront_KEY=1037

    I only have a farm girl from Indiana in the 50′s 60′s education, but since 9-11 and so many snafu’s with that fiasco, I’ve tried to broaden my view and get some sort of order out of what I thought was “my country” and what I have seen politically and socially around me the last few decades. My grammer may not be the best, my verbage lacking and context not academic enough for some or most of you, but I do try and thats more than most people seem able to muster and care enough to do about this country any more. Patting myself on the back a bit folks :)

    Didn’t really understand the different “forms” of Gov I realized so got a legal pad and did some old fashioned homework.
    My favorite albiet not college grade defination of Fascism is the one from Mussolini
    Not a direct quote, but I’ll give it a go…. The marriage of Corporate and State…. in fact, if memory serves , he said Corporatism should really be called Fascism.

    If we aren’t living in Corporate Fascism ( and both parties along with the Supreme Court are fine with that and even call it LEGAL) then I sure as HELL don’t want to live in anything more “corporate’ or “fascist” than this.

    Didn’t even know the definition of Anarchist but when I read it, and thought about it, I may well be one.
    No form of Government to date has endured so where do we go from here? Would appreciate any suggestions because, as stated in a previous post, we are indeed, In Dire Straits. (forgive, they are one of my favorite bands ) :)

    A damn good start to fixing some of the damage to me would be stopping Bernake in his tracks and taking his power to print money out of air and buying US Bonds nobody else wants to purchase any longer. This just smells bad and makes no sense at all to this Hoosier !! :)

    • A good look at things, Watchful Eye.

      You asked: “So where do we go from here?” I tried to point out above what is obvious to me on that score. It got rather short shrift from Dean and his denizens. But you seem a decent sort, with a caring, and open-minded, attitude. So here goes with an attempt to put some more meat on the plate, as it were. (And I’m trying to have a little spoof with you here, with my high-falutin’ language, in your concern about being “just a farm girl from Indiana”. Look at the trouble some very smart folks, with degrees up the gazoo, have got us in. And speaking of: Yes, a “damn good start to fixing some of the damage…would be stopping” Bernanke “in his tracks…” What you described him doing is called ‘monetizing the debt’ – paying off debt with debt. What it actually bought was a bit of time, is all. And was a sign, if there ever needed to be one, that we are in an end game.)

      1) The answer to the problem is not going to be found on the level of the problem.

      2) As long as we think of money as an end in itself – i.e., the making of money for its own sake, rather than as the means to the end of exchanging goods and services – we will never get to the answer of humanity’s predicament. We need to eliminate that idea, of money as an end in itself, which comes from the invention of interest-bearing money – the idea of making money ON money.

      3) If you HAD gone to college, Hoosier Lady, with your keen mind & interests you may well have come across the philosophy of Friedrich Hegel, and his take on the development/evolution of nations. Called the ‘dialectic’ (the basis for the Marxian concept of ‘dialectical materialism’), he posited such evolution to consist of a) a ‘thesis’ – a statement of being; which, because it is not complete (still has ‘internal contradictions’), generates a reaction, called b) the ‘antithesis’; out of which interaction evolves c) a ‘synthesis’, picking up elements of both ‘statements’. But because the whole process is still not complete, that ‘synthesis’ stage becomes the ‘thesis’ of another go-’round; the whole thing having brought us – through such stages as feudalism – to this day. Without going into this process, and the current stage of historical development, in detail, let me just say that “we are in an end game” indeed; with the imminent collapse of the western monetary system (because of its ‘internal contradictions’), and the concomitant development of globalization, and the showdown between – to put it simply – materialism and spiritualism. (For the latter, read, e.g., ‘Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife’, by Eben Alexander, M.D.)

      I am saying that we are at an End of History. And the sooner we recognize that, the better.

      So, keep checking things out, Hoosier Lady, rather than just on the likes of this site. As to that statement: Don’t anybody here get me wrong. For example, Dean has challenged life in ways that I never have, and I respect him for that. But he, and his ‘followers’, need to look outside of their comfort-zone box for the answers. And that entails looking neither backwards, nor forwards on a merely linear timeline. But Up.

      And we don’t get there from here. To say, from this current level of consciousness; where we think of each other as antagonists. Rather than as brothers and sisters – sparks; fractals – of the All That Is.

      Some who will make the grade sooner than others, is all.

  14. Watchful eye, i gotta agree with you that if this isn’t corporate fascism, it is close enough for me. Where do we go from here? i have a suggestion that first we stop trying to get different results with the same actions that have never once worked before.Some actions of the common 98% have worked, some have not. Choosing between two candidates who both belong to the predators on wall street for instance is something that has never worked. There is no way this can be a democracy anymore, gone, done,” money is free speech”.Time to count our losses and regroup. I think one place it could go is to let the few who run everything vote themselves in, since that is what they are doing anyway, and quit deceiving ourselves with the idea that we share significant rule by picking from among the rulers. Their control is too complete, popular vote has been consistently overruled or stolen so much that it isn’t funny anymore. ,n.g.o. institutions to eventually bring the oligarchy back under common law ideals( legally) i think is the next step going up, the other direction, the down stairway , would be what ,?more corporate decision making by the bush type crowd by them and for them, i can see nothing else. for the future.
