Ex-US Officials Demanded a 30 Billion Dollar Bribe

Ex-US Officials Demanded a 30 Billion Dollar Bribe

Excerpt: "He (Wanta) was tasked by President Reagan and CIA Director William Colby to destabilize the Soviet Union through establishment, with funds from the US Treasury, of a worldwide currency trading scheme......."

Being Robin Hood and taking down another government to support your own is a very interesting angle as it relates to extortion. The mission may have had some honest intentions but the idea of going after the Soviet Union in a "scheme" that would make trillions of dollars for the US is to me a question of ethics. Is it okay to do someone in so you can do for someone else? Well one thing that is for sure, there is no honesty among thieves. The issue of "my money" is a dubious one notwithstanding how you got "your money" in the first place.

For a long time a family member of mine was a pimp. He amassed great sums of money. When he offered it to me, I refused. I did not want money that was gotten under duress, torture, abuse or any other such thing.

Are the American people so shallow that they do not care, how they got the money, just that now they can use it? Are the American Christians and ethical social beings that shallow that they will look the other way, knowing that the money was ill-gotten in the first place, but yeah, we got millions of jobs out the deal? Are Americans so separated from the law of "what goes around comes around" that they think that since the "shake down of the Soviet Union" economy would not bite them in the ass as the Soviet Union and her descendants attempt to get themselves back on track knowing that it was the work of an American President that put them in the cross-hairs in the first place? 

To answer my own question, yes, in fact most people are that shallow. They do not realize that everything is energy and an exchange of energy, in this instance "ill-gotten money" will not bode well in the future. For instance, if one is willing to do something criminal to someone else, what makes them think they are "safe" from anyone else wanting to do something criminal to them? 

People who rally in support of criminalizing these two "culprits" who attempted to shake Mr. Wanta down are just as guilty as the party that Wanta engaged in to shake down the Soviet Union. There are no innocents in this kind of "economic tyranny" on all sides. The economies based on the Western Model is a ponzy scheme, no matter how you slice it. Issuing W9's is no clearance for the fact that a substantial amount of interest was amassed for the Banksters and Crooks of the world to leverage their bets and hedge funds as this "fiat money" traveled around the globe.

Who in this day and time can even imagine having $trillions of dollars in their bank account?Who can imagine in this day and time having even billions? In fact, who really knows how billions become trillions when millions are homeless and even more millions of homes lie vacant?
Is there a viable resolve for one to come to in a corrupt economy ran by corrupt banksters backed by corrupt corporations and governments? 

Again, the fact that people feel that Mr. Wanta has been "mistreated, threatened or bribed" have their eyes veiled by the deception of the "currency trading scheme" and I would dare to mention the reason why. All for the love of money.

There are no victims in this case and there are no innocents either. IMHO

Ex-US  Officials Demanded a 30 Billion Dollar Bribe


“Former Tenn. Gov. Don Sundquist and S. Dakota Sen. Sheldon Songstad may face not just the largest bribery charge in history but conspiracy to murder as well.”

… by  Gordon Duff,  VT Sr. Editor,    … with  New Eastern Outlook, Moscow

Lee Wanta, tough as nails, and still kicking
Editor's note:  You just can't make this stuff up. Two crooked aging politicians, who appear to be uber bagmen for Capitol Hill, don't disconnect a voice mail message left for their shake down victim, and then the caller rings up his co-conspirator to discuss their next move, including killing their target if they don't get paid.
But there is just one problem. The whole six-minute conversation goes into Lee Wanta's voice mail, which the jury is going to enjoy immensely. Lee calls his rather extensive security team to ask what to do, and here we are... doing it.
This murder conspiracy case might also break the media blackout on the Wanta case, which has gone on since 2006, after the Treasury Dept. snatched his $4.5-million wire transfer from China into the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, only to be tranferred to Goldman Sachs the next day; and off to Europe it went as part of the $16 trillion of liquidity pumped into the banking system there during the meltdown.
I wish I could say this was an unusual case, but really, only the amounts involved are. These two yo-yos... there is an army of ex-office holders who would be doing exactly what these two thought was going to be their final wet dream.
If we were really to round up all of them doing this kind of stuff, there would be so many special elections going on that they would run out of press people to cover them. And no, I am not exaggerating... Jim W. Dean ]

A day after former Republican Virginia governor, Bob McDonnell and his wife were convicted of 20 counts of bribery and influence peddling, former Republican Tennessee governor Don Sundquist and South Dakota Senator Sheldon Songstad may face, not just the largest bribery charge in world history but indictment for conspiracy to murder as well.

What is amazing about this case is the amount of money involved, totaling $9.5 trillion US dollars, in fact the entire GNP of the United States for several years.
Sundquist and Songstad, wanted $30 billion out of the proceeds to pay themselves along with Congress, the US Treasury Department, five Supreme Court justices and two former US presidents.

Best of all, the whole thing is on tape, a “shakedown” attempt against Ambassador Lee Wanta, former White House intelligence chief under President Ronald Reagan and editor at Veterans Today.

Sundquist and Songstad left, on a recording at Wanta’s embassy, full details, not only of their ability to virtually buy the entire US government and deliver a multi-trillion dollar settlement authorized to Wanta by the US Supreme Court, but were recorded making arrangements for the murder of Wanta as well.

Yes beautiful, but that rifle was made in China? Russia? Israel? USA?

Yes beautiful, but that rifle was made in China? Russia? Israel? USA?

I am just saying that when you look a little deeper into this picture, a beautiful African Warrior who is carrying a weapon made by the enemies of all Africans.
When she needs more ammunition or another rifle she has to go to the ones who manufacture these weapons, and they are most likely, as I am sure they are, of European or Asian Descent. And as we know these are the same people who have invaded and colonized the African peoples for way too long. Europeans through the gun, bible, disease and intimidation, and Asians through the slow subliminal take over of their natural resources and infrastructure.

Look at any picture of Africans fighting against other Africans. Where are their weapons manufactured? That is the question that comes to mind when I see this picture. Besides the beauty, I see behind it, the destruction of African civilizations down through the ages. The difference here is that she is not wearing Army fatigues, or a bullet proof vest or any other such armor to protect her from an incoming or errant bullet from another's rifle.

Hopefully, she is on her way to hunt some food for her family and not on her way to kill another African!! 

Obama Charged With 'Imperial Hubris' Unmatched Even By Bush

Obama, the Marionette

When this man first came on the scene, I was very skeptical. It became mortal combat to even mention that he may not be the "Savior" Messiah that folks had been waiting for. So, I quietly took my place among the dissenters and waited. It has become clear that I was waiting for the masses to wake up, not for him to change. Clearly, he has been what he has been all along. Clear indicators were his assessment that 911 was caused by Arabs with box cutters, no indictment for Bush/Chaney war crimes, and let's get out of Iraq and go into Afghanistan. Those positions alone should have alerted the entire world community, that under that handsome face and dancing swagger was a war monger, the likes we have seen from the days of blatant Roman & Ottoman Empire builders to name a few.

Now, look at his eyes. Even this picture with his hands up in the manner that a marionette would be held, display invisible strings. He is a puppet of the first degree, a mind-controlled marionette who does and most like has to do the will of his controllers.

He has lost any semblance of autonomy, sovereignty or self-determination. He does not think, he does not question, he does not rebel. He cannot. The part of his brain that once housed free thinking, free will, has been entirely lobotomized. Here we see, a clear picture of a man who is lost, completely lost from reality, troops on the ground, in the air, or anywhere.

"God bless our troops" is a misnomer..... until he verifies which "God" he is speaking of, and even then, it is highly unlikely that the "God" of which he speaks is at all concerned with blessing the troops. Unless, of course, we realize that there are many "Gods" and to whom he is bequeathing his troops, is a question that requires serious scrutiny. That "God" is a blood thirsty hater of truth, justice and peace. That "God" seeks vengeance and lusts off the souls, and bodies of brutally murdered and assassinated innocent men, women and children. That "God" feeds off despair and agony and like a vicious swarm of locusts, that "God" sends its minions to devour the grotesquely disembodied. That "God" waits in the war theaters created around the world and drinks with luscious delight the carnage and spillage of blood sprouting from the open head, leg and neck wounds of those who barely knew what hit them. That "God" hysterically laughs at the ignorance of those who are led to it. That "God" is the absolute epitome of Psycho-pathic-sado-masochistic Psychosis that makes the most horrid of beings look beautiful. That "God" has promised a nice warm seat in the heart of hell for its puppet and all the minions who follow.

Unfortunately, it may be too late to ring the alarm bell, and wake this ONE up! Whatever he had, has been lost. And it is very sad. A golden opportunity to move the entire world into a new directions, based on the influence that the US has, and yet, the entire world is now much worse off than it was before he came into office. I wonder what happened to all those New Age Channellers who were lauding the praises of this "man" and what he represented. Even the astrologers caused one to wonder if they were authentic or just sock puppets like the rest. It appears as though the entire world was hijacked into believing that "CHANGE HAD REALLY COME"!

Things have definitely changed. The access to alternative media has made it virtually impossible for the "false flag" scenarios to hold the attention of the masses for too long. I firmly believe as I have stated before, that the election of Barack Hussein Obama into the position of the 44th President of the United states was the biggest hoax, psyops, media ramping up of  the "Big Lie", etc, more than any other situation in human history since the invention of Jesus Christ! His election has served so many purposes on so many levels it is mind boggling to watch all the pieces fall right into place. The Grand Chess board and design for a new American Century took its last major leap be making sure that BHO got elected!! He ushered in the NWO in a way that no other world event or crisis or natural disaster could. He represents ALL OF these and much more by his position and presence in the White House.

Whether he goes down in history as the worst president of the United states or the most misguided president of the United States, one thing is certain, he will leave a legacy behind to be topped by none, short of a complete take over and colonization of the entire Planet via an Alien Invasion.

Obama Charged With ‘Imperial Hubris’ Unmatched Even By Bush

Following his announcement to bomb Syria without
congressional approval, president slammed for total disregard for
constitutional safeguards regarding war-making.

A day after President Obama told the American public he was preparing
to bomb targets inside the sovereign state of Syria and that he did not
need congressional approval to do so, critics are lashing out against
what Bruce Ackerman, a professor of law and political science at Yale
University, described as “imperial hubris” on Friday.

In his scathing op-ed in the New York Times, Ackerman writes:
President Obama’s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris.

Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
In contrast, the Obama administration has not even published a legal
opinion attempting to justify the president’s assertion of unilateral
war-making authority. This is because no serious opinion can be written.
This became clear when White
House officials briefed reporters before Mr. Obama’s speech to the
nation on Wednesday evening. They said a war against ISIS was justified
by Congress’s authorization of force against Al Qaeda after the Sept.
11, 2001, attacks, and that no new approval was needed.
But the 2001 authorization for the use of military force
does not apply here. That resolution — scaled back from what Mr. Bush
initially wanted — extended only to nations and organizations that
“planned, authorized, committed or aided” the 9/11 attacks.
And Ackerman’s not alone.
Robert Chesney, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law, told the Daily Beast this week that Obama’s claim of authority to bomb ISIS targets in Syria was “on its face” an “implausible argument.”
“The 2001 AUMF requires a nexus
to al Qaeda or associated forces of al Qaeda fighting the United
States,” explained Chesney, but “since ISIS broke up with al Qaeda it’s
hard to make” the case that authority granted by the AUMF  still
applies.     Continue reading hereObama Charged With 'Imperial Hubris' Unmatched Even By Bush

NB COMMENTARY "Missouri carries out eighth execution this year after rejecting concerns over 'inhumane' sedative"

Missouri carries out eighth execution this year after rejecting concerns over 'inhumane' sedative

EXCERPT: "Johnny Sutton, the lead prosecutor at Trottie's trial, said .........................'He hunted them down,' Sutton said. 'The self-defense claim is absolutely ridiculous. He kicked in their door. ... They already were worried about him. He was making threats and trying to run her off the road.'This one was so cold and calculated.' 


I fail to understand how one type of murder is better than another type of murder. For example, if I planned to kill someone after a 20 year stay locked up in my basement, would that not be considered per-meditated murder?

How any of this "killing" makes any sense, is beyond me. 
Killing another person who killed another person does not bring that person back, nor can the latter go and get them and bring them back. It's a total waste of time and resources.

I also wonder about the so called "witnesses". Aren't they complicit in this murder? No they didn't pull the trigger, but weren't they at the scene of the crime? How many people have been arrested and jailed for just being there?

I wonder about the mental stability of this entire system that condones, implements and financially supports this type of murder, that is blatant and cold, and out in the open with no question of who done it. Yet others are arrested, tried and convicted, sometimes even wrongfully and given the death penalty.

What a backwards psychology!

How does the person who administers the punishment sleep at night without nightmares and visits in the dream world from the person they just killed. Yet, this society wishes that the so-called convict sleep restlessly forever, with no peace in their lives ever.

And, quiet as it's kept, the so-called criminal given the death penalty has friends, family and loved ones too. What makes their pain of the loss of their loved one less than the loss of the family who feels so right in killing the criminal who killed their mother, brother, sister, father or friend??

These and other questions plague my mind as I watch the way the human beings treat each other. And in this case, they are actually conversing, debating and fighting over which way to kill someone is more humane.  I am not sure what the DSM-IV would diagnose this condition of the mind as, but it is certainly a pervasive mental illness.


A Missouri inmate became the eight was put to death in the early hours of this morning for the killing of two people during a restaurant robbery in 1998.
Earl Ringo Jr., 40, was executed at 12:22am by lethal injection after a plea for a stay of execution - based on irregularities in the use of lethal injection drugs in the state - was refused.
Ringo's last words came from the Quran and expressed belief and wishes for after death. He wiggled his feet as the process began, breathed deeply a few times, then closed his eyes, all in a matter of seconds.

Earl Ringo Jr., 40, was executed today for the killing of two people during a restaurant robbery in 1998
He had declined to request a last meal, eating instead the Salisbury steak and macaroni and cheese offered to other inmates.
In the early hours of July 4, 1998, Ringo and an accomplice killed delivery driver Dennis Poyser and manager trainee JoAnna Baysinger at a Ruby Tuesday restaurant in Columbia.
Both victims were shot dead at point-blank range.
The run-up to Ringo's execution was shrouded by controversy, as Missouri continues to use the sedative, midazolam, despite claims that the pre-execution drug is inhumane.
Earlier this year in Ohio, Oklahoma and Arizona.
In April, gruesome scenes accompanied the execution of Clayton Lockett, a murderer and rapist who shot his 19-year-old victim and ordered a friend to bury her alive.
It was a full 43 minutes after the drug was administered in the Oklahoma execution chamber that the convicted killer died. During this time, Lockett thrashed violently, lurching forward against his restraints, writhing and attempting to speak.
Willie Trottie, who turned 45 Monday, shot and killed 24-year-old Barbara Canada, and her  brother, Titus

Barbara Canada,
and her brother, Titus

Witnesses described his body twisting, and his head reaching up from the gurney, before the curtains were drawn around the chamber obscuring Lockett's final minutes from public view.
In January, convicted murderer and rapist Dennis McGuire appeared to gurgle, gasp for air and convulse for around 10 minutes after being sentenced to death using an experimental two-drug concoction including midazolam. 
Chilling scenes also occurred in the Arizona execution chamber in July, when Joseph Rudolph Wood took nearly two hours to die from the lethal injection. 
Witnesses told how the murderer appeared to be struggling to breathe after the sedation and then gasped desperately for breath at least 600 times before falling still. 
Ringo's attorneys had argued that the drug could dull his senses and leave him unable to express any pain or suffering during the process.
They had asked a federal appeals court to postpone the execution until a hearing over Missouri's use of midazolam. 
Attorney Richard Sindel claimed that Missouri's use of midazolam essentially violates its own protocol, which provides for pentobarbital as the lone execution drug. But the courts and Gov. Jay Nixon had refused to halt Ringo's execution over the concerns.
The Missouri Department of Corrections says it administers midazolam before executions and not as part of its execution protocol.
'It should not be lost in the national debate over the death penalty that Earl Ringo Jr. was responsible for the murders of two innocent Missourians. For 16 years he avoided payment for this crime. Tonight he has paid the penalty,' Missouri's Attorney General, Chris Koster, said in a statement.
A clemency petition to Nixon had also cited concerns about the fact that Ringo was convicted and sentenced to death by an all-white jury.

On July 3, 1998, Ringo told his accomplice Quentin Jones about his plan to rob the Ruby Tuesday restaurant in Columbia, where he once worked. Jones agreed to join him.
Before sunrise on July 4, Ringo and Jones hid behind a grease pit in the back of the restaurant. Poyser and Baysinger arrived and entered the restaurant. Ringo followed them and shot Poyser, 45, killing him instantly.
He then ordered Baysinger, 22, to open a safe. She pulled out $1,400 and gave it to him.
Ringo gave the gun to Jones, who stood with the weapon pointed at Baysinger's head for a minute and a half before pulling the trigger.
Interviews with restaurant workers and former workers led police to Ringo. Detectives found a blue ski mask, gun receipt, bulletproof vest and other evidence at the home of his mother.


Happ - who raped and killed Angie Crowley, 21, in 1986 - died by lethal injection in 2013

William Happ, 51, was the first death row inmate to be injected with midazolam hydrochloride.
The execution began at 6.02pm at Florida State Prison. Happ's eyes opened and he blinked several times.
He closed and opened them again two minutes later. He then yawned and his jaw dropped open.
At 6.08pm, the official overseeing the execution tugged at Happ's eyelids and grasped his shoulder to check for a response. There was none.
A minute later, Happ's head began moving back and forth and shortly thereafter his breathing stopped. 
He was pronounced dead at 6.16pm.
Ringo admitted to the robbery but claimed the shootings were in self-defense. He was convicted in 1999 and sentenced to death.
Jones, of Louisville, Kentucky, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison, but he was spared the death penalty when he agreed to testify against Ringo.
Jama Brown, who was married for to Poyser for 24 years, asked that people remember the victims.
'I can only tell you there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him or wonder what my life would be like today, not only for myself, but for my kids,' she said. 
In a statement she added: 'Please do not make this about how executions shouldn't take place. Put your effort on how we can stop people from committing these terrible actions.
'Please remember these two wonderful people who just wanted to go to work on the Fourth of July to support their families.'
Ringo's execution is the eighth in the state this year and the tenth since November.
St. Louis Public Radio reported last week that Missouri administered midazolam to all nine inmates put to death since November. Corrections department spokesman David Owen said midazolam 'is used to relieve the offender's level of anxiety' and is not part of the actual execution process.
The execution was one of two scheduled for today in the U.S. This afternoon Texas plans to execute Willie Trottie for killing his common-law wife and her brother in 1993.
Trottie's execution will be Texas' eighth this year. Florida has performed seven executions in 2014, and all other states have a combined six.
Both Missouri and Texas use pentobarbital as their execution drug but decline to disclose where the drug is obtained.
'They don't tell you what it is and where it comes from,' Trottie told The Associated Press. 'What I've learned in 20 years here on death row is all you can do is say, 'OK.'
'I'm ready whichever way it goes. If God says, 'Yes,' I'm ready.'
Trottie, who turned 45 Monday, shot and killed 24-year-old Barbara Canada, and her 28-year-old brother, Titus, at the Canada family home in Houston. Canada's mother and sister were also wounded.
Lawyers for Trottie argued in their appeal that the one-time deliveryman and security guard suffered poor representation in his initial trial. 
They said his counsel failed to present witnesses who would have told jurors Trottie and Barbara Canada were romantically engaged at the time of the killings. Late Monday, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the appeal.
Trottie said he and Barbara Canada were on 'good terms' despite an on-again, off-again relationship. Trottie said he was defending himself against Titus Canada, who shot first. He said the shooting of his wife was accidental.
'It wasn't like I just walked in there and gunned her down,' he said.
Johnny Sutton, the lead prosecutor at Trottie's trial, said evidence showed that's exactly what happened.
'He hunted them down,' Sutton said. 'The self-defense claim is absolutely ridiculous. He kicked in their door. ... They already were worried about him. He was making threats and trying to run her off the road.
'This one was so cold and calculated.'

NB Commentary "Ebola outbreak: call to send in military to west Africa to help curb epidemic"

It seems that the militarization and military dominance of the Western World Powers are in full swing. Of course they experiment first on the least able to resist their control and then move towards the higher stakes.

There are many fields of conquest taking place at this moment, a sign that the steady plan by plan operations do not work reminiscent of how at the end of the battle all the ammo that is left is hoisted upon  the enemy. Western powers are losing their dominion over the world, economically, politically and spiritually. There desire for a New World Order by culling the masses has become exposed for all to see. As a result, they have found the need to resort to even more treacherous strategies. Ebola is bio-chemical warfare, hence the need for boots on the ground. They care not who they endanger as those wearing the boots are just as expendable as those who are affected by this virus.

Ebola outbreak: call to send in military to west Africa to help curb epidemic

The design of worldwide population reduction is in full swing and they are now testing one of the deadliest man-made virus in recent history. When the initial outbreak occurred the loss of life was not astronomical. Now they have gotten to a people on the African continent who were already broken and now even more so, hence their inability to fight the infection. The human's immune system can be render useless with varying conditions of stress, strife, struggle, heart break, wars and various other events that happen in the life of human beings on this planet.

From my point of view, it is quite clear that the propaganda campaign that has been launched against the virus and the African people is a clear indicator that this disease has been set loose on the African populations. We must also look at the natural resources in the areas hit hardest by the outbreak and connect the dots.

Western Powers are plummeting into the depths of despair. Economically, politically and spiritually they are losing control over the masses as seen by the many protests against their governments. Their economies are collapsing as we speak and once the great Euro-American Empires collapse all those entrenched in their way of life will collapse as well. It will go down in the annals of time as the True and Unequivocal fall of man. 

Africans who have lusted after the Western Way of Life, have forsaken their ancient values for Capitalism. Once a beacon in the world for Community and support for family and traditional institutions; Africa's Leaders have become Westernized in their climb to the so-called top of the ladder. They are finding out slowly but surely that the Euro-Americans and their schemes for advancement cannot be trusted. 

While the "Obama Trojan" horse was set loose on

unknowing masses of Blacks in Africa, the Black leaders are lining their pockets with promises of riches, Western riches.... Ignoring their own profitability in their home grown resources as well as ingenuity. Euro-American Powers want to trump the advancement of China into Africa. This is a war on many fronts and all not done with weapons of mass destruction as they have been deployed in the past.

It is an insidious, creeping into the very fiber of the African being, a scraping away of all ethical and community connections; a masking of a great cancer that has rendered Africans in their quest for acknowledgement and acceptance by the beast who colonized it in the first place.

We are definitely living in some seriously trying times as wars wage across the planet. Our host Mother Earth has seen nothing like this before in her history, as we are much more populated and given to warring with each other than ever before.

Is there any hope? I am not too sure of that. In my opinion, attempting to gather together a Union of African countries numbering 50+ (as some countries have seceded and formed additional countries on the continent) the division among African people as a whole is daunting. Where are the true African leaders who will  or can bridge the gap? Qaddafi is gone along with so many others. Where are the true leaders of the African people who have the vision to see that their dependence on Euro-American assistance is a death knell?

I believe that Africans swallowed the Euro-American belief systems, religious, economic and political. These systems are antithesis to what ancient traditional Africa stood for. It flies in the face of the Ancient Ancestral traditions. It is a divide and conquer mechanism that has destroyed the very "immune" system of the Continental African. Ebola is just a sign of a deeper and more shattering phenomenon. Africa is infected with Western ideology, and as a result, Africa will fall ill with its disease and suffer a great loss until the cure is discovered. What is the cure? 


Self Reliance! 

Deporting any and all Euro-American ideology in all its forms. Taking back its true nature from the vulture who consumed it. 

Until then, Africa will drown in the sinking ship of Western Imperialism.

Why Kim Kardashian Is the Perfect Icon for Our Sick Society

Why Kim Kardashian Is the Perfect Icon for Our Sick Society |  

Lynn Parramore is an AlterNet senior editor

Whether she is Instagramming her butt, or spending$827,000 on gold-plated toilets for her new mansion, or in her latest exploit, posing nude on silver sheets for GQ, Kim Kardashian has the American media in a fawning frenzy of non-stop headlines.
Her body!   
Her money!
Her fame!
Kardashian represents the pinnacle values of late-stage American-style capitalism: opportunism, effortless celebrity, obsession with wealth and image, narcissism, and above all, making a fortune doing nothing useful.
In her ripened curves, the fruits of unbridled capitalism are made flesh. In her dogged ambition to be rich and be seen, she is the Lady Bountiful of the Celebrity-Industrial Complex, endorsing any product that will have her, no matter how contradictory. Diet systems? Of course! McDonald’s? Mais oui! The mirror image of the market stripped of regulation, she is the marketer unburdened by responsibility.
Turning the world into a camera, Kardashian takes self-obsession to new heights: She is the queen of the selfie, compiling a 352-page series of snaps into an unpublished book called “Selfish,” soon available to all in hardcover. Her smartphone gaming app, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” invites players to follow her animated image as she frolics through a commercial playground. The app is already worth $200 million after a midsummer release, its candy-colored cartoons perfectly reflecting the infantile ethos she represents.
Kim Kardashian is simply the id of capitalism run wild, the narcissistic force that wants what it wants, when it wants it, an incarnation of the fulfilled wish to talk and think about absolutely nothing while rolling in snuggly designer sheets. Unattached and oblivious, the spoiled child becomes the American avatar of freedom and self-expression, something elevated and even holy.
Americans love to fetishize wealth, viewing a person’s monetary success as a direct sign of righteousness. So revered is the act of marketing the self that Kardashian's cartoon image accrues metaphysical weight. For a certain strain of Gen Y, Kim Kardashian is held up as a feminist icon: Katie Gonzalez of Elite Daily gushes that “Kim has become another voice that attempts to uplift her fellow females,” while Suchi Sundaram of Feminspire explores her mythic dimension: “From Helen of Troy to Kim Kardashian, women have been constantly defining their roles and powers in a patriarchal society.”
Not only can you be famous for absolutely nothing, you can be feminist, too. Why not a Nobel Prize winner? The poet laureate? No need for action or insight. Accumulation and consumption are the only skills required.
So why are we stuck with her? The answer lies in the fact that the American economy is in a stage where most people are not getting what we need, much less what we want. As we become more alienated and work harder and harder for our neo-feudal overlords, our dreams are constricted and our futures foreclosed. Celebrities are the gods we create to distract ourselves from our own incompleteness, from the hunger for things we cannot have. We spend our lives following their every move to get our attention away from the lack that we will always feel until this system is overthrown.
Kim Kardashian has just been named British GQ magazine's Woman of the Year, but perhaps she is more than that. She is the woman of the era, the most visible symptom of our society’s particular sickness. In a healthy society, the id cannot dominate, and milking a twisted system for all it’s worth is not seen an act of heroism, but the mark of a person for whom the human condition is nothing more than perpetual imprisonment in the self. Appropriately, Kim Kardashian is very fond of corsets. She is the illusion of bounty and freedom that covers the deformation and restriction of the human spirit.
Is it all her fault? Of course not. She’s the prison we made for ourselves.

Aliens May Destroy Humanity to Protect other Civilisations, Say Scientists

Aliens May Destroy Humanity to Protect other Civilisations, Say Scientists

Rising greenhouse emissions could tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report.

It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.
Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.

This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by a Nasa-affiliated scientist and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University that, while considered unlikely, they say could play out were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future.

Shawn Domagal-Goldman of Nasa’s Planetary Science Division and his colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity “prepare for actual contact”.............

LOL, this article is comical.

It's saying maybe the threat of being annihilated by ETI could stop humanity from destroying itself and the planet. Baa Humbug, I say to that. Where were they thousands of years ago before Atlantis was destroyed? Where were they when the so-called great flood happened? Where were they when Mars, supposedly destroyed itself? What about their intercession when Venus was in trouble?

Too funny, if they are smart, they will not bother us, cause we can take em on!!! And we can still destroy our planet and move out into the Cosmos with our diseases in the mind, body and spirit.

Don't they know that they cannot wipe us out??We are like roaches.. We will come back as we have done over and over again. We have suffered through all types of calamities. Wars, hunger, drought, wars, pestilence, death and destructions, wars and atom bombs, mini nukes, Fukishimo,  Oil Spills, fracking, tornadoes, volcanoes, hurricane Katrina.. wars and starvation, Ebola and Boko Haram. We will survive ISIS and the New World Order. Don't they know that is how we got here in the first place.

Don't they know that they sent the worse of the worse here because we were so incorrigible we couldn't make it there?

Silly, Aliens, they think they can deter us from destroying our planet, filling our seas with plastic and drying up our water supplies. They oughta know we will take them vaccines, plug all kinds of micro-chips in us, become cyborgs, and travel to other planets for safe refuge.

Don't they know that our underground bunkers are no match for their stupid technology. Don't they know we been hiding out here on the edge of our Galaxy for eons just so we could show them how powerful and resilient we are?

Who cares how big they are? We tame the wildest and biggest beasts in the jungle. Ain't nobody scared of no darned Aliens.

We got weapons in space and we can see them coming and we are practicing on downing asteroids before they hit the planet. We are holding them off already in space, and every time we get one of them, we hear weird sounds all over the place on earth, they tell us we are winning.

Don't they know that we are covering the earth with chemtrails so that their stupid technology can't pierce through our cloud of barium, aluminum and nano particles of blood plasm. Shucks, them Aliens better wake up and find some other planet to mess with, cause we ain't going out like that!!!!!

Silly Aliens, SMDH!
