Dialectical Lemonade: The MAGA Hat Kids

Like everyone else who listens to any amount of mainstream media on a regular basis, I heard the story of the racist kids from Kentucky wearing Make America Great Again hats and taunting a tribal elder in DC at the Women’s March. I tuned it out as a psyop immediately for numerous reasons. With stories like this I am often reminded of the scene in The Mission where the cardinal, about to order devastation upon the Indians in Paraguay, is rightly troubled by what he is set to do. His aide tries to comfort him by saying, “The world is thus, Your Excellency.” The cardinal replies, “Thus have we made the world.” Reports of obnoxious and overtly racist kids crashing the Women’s March wearing MAGA hats and attacking Native Americans are meant to convince us, “The world is thus.” I see how inorganically these incidents (to the extent they are ever accurately reported) have emerged and I think, “Thus have we made the world–are we making the world.” And I refuse to participate by engaging in the dialectical bait even intellectually. But the story did end up engaging me in the end….

At first the dialectic was “privileged white racist Trump supporting teenage boys menace peaceful Native American elder engaging in a call to prayer.” Not much of a dialectic really–who’s on the other side of that? The boys are not sympathetic–a dialectic has to have adherents on both sides to drive toward a pre-planned solution. (The dialectic is simply understood as Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis or Problem-Reaction-Solution.) This wasn’t really a dialectic, just another pulse in the “Trump’s America Is a Racist America” meme. But then something strange happened. As other videos emerged, it became clear that the story offered by the Native American, Nathan Phillips, and his supporters, was false, and the media had accepted their narrative of this out-of-context moment with very little to go on but bias. No matter…as Saul Alinsky advised, if your original goal isn’t achieved, take the outcome as it is and turn it toward your own interests anyway. That is, you get lemons? Make lemonade.

And so it was done…

Some articles of interest from the week with excerpts….

Hampshire College Draws Protests Over Removal of U.S. Flag
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/28/us/hampshire-college-flag-veterans-protest.html?_r=1

“If it was a political act, it was pretty craven and ineffective since people did it in secret and no one knows what it was meant to state,” Hampshire college’s president, Jonathan Lash, 71, said in a phone interview on Monday. “And we replaced the flag the next day.”

But within a week Mr. Lash had sent an email announcing that the flag was to be taken down altogether. “Some on campus perceived the flag as “a powerful symbol of fear they’ve felt all their lives because they grew up in marginalized communities, never feeling safe….So something that I have been learning about over the six years but I saw with incredible intensity after the election was the genuineness and depth of the fear of people who have grown up with racism,” Lash, said in a statement. “Who look at the deaths on city streets and say, that could easily have been me.”

FBI and NSA poised to gain new surveillance powers under trump https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-11-29/fbi-and-nsa-poised-to-gain-new-surveillance-powers-under-trump

“Trump’s first two choices to head law enforcement and intelligence agencies — Republican Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general and Republican Representative Mike Pompeo for director of the Central Intelligence Agency — are leading advocates for domestic government spying at levels not seen since the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.”

In a reversal of curbs imposed after Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013 about mass data-gathering by the NSA, Trump and Congress may move to reinstate the collection of bulk telephone records, renew powers to collect the content of e-mails and other internet activity, ease restrictions on hacking into computers and let the FBI keep preliminary investigations open longer.

A first challenge for privacy advocates comes this week: A new rule is set to go into effect on Dec. 1 letting the FBI get permission from a judge in a single jurisdiction to hack into multiple computers whose locations aren’t known. [wouldn’t put it past them to do it in every jurisdiction with no expiry]

“Under the proposed rules, the government would now be able to obtain a single warrant to access and search thousands or millions of computers at once; and the vast majority of the affected computers would belong to the victims, not the perpetrators, of a cybercrime,” Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who serves on the Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.

Wyden is one of seven senators, including libertarian Republican Rand Paul, who have introduced a bill, S. 3475, to delay the new policy until July to give Congress time to debate its merits and consider amendments.

From Trump’s picks for CIA (Pompeo) and Attorney General (Sessions):

Time for a Rigorous National Debate About Surveillance
Post-9/11 measures have been weakened or discarded. A coherent new approach is needed.
http://www.wsj.com/articles/time-for-a-rigorous-national-debate-about-surveillance-1451856106

The use of strong encryption in personal communications may itself be a red flag….

Reasonable warrantless searches are compatible with the Fourth Amendment. So are searches of data shared with third parties, such as social-media posts…

Surveillance should feature prominently in the 2016 presidential campaign, giving the next commander in chief a mandate and sense of obligation to implement reforms. Opposition to surveillance has been bipartisan, and the strategy for overcoming it must be bipartisan too…..

Congress should pass a law re-establishing collection of all metadata, and combining it with publicly available financial and lifestyle information into a comprehensive, searchable database. Legal and bureaucratic impediments to surveillance should be removed….

Sessions: The civil libertarians among us would rather defend the constitution than protect our nation’s security.” Problem with Sessions’ theory is that the Constitution is what would protect national security—undeclared wars, MIC–create danger both incidentally and purposely. See George Washington’s farewell address for more.

Panel urges better cybersecurity to President-elect Trump
http://www.wsbradio.com/ap/ap/top-news/panel-urges-better-cybersecurity-to-president-elec/ntHpn/

The release of the 100-page report follows the worst hacking of U.S. government systems in history and accusations by the Obama administration that Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election by hacking Democrats.

The commission recommended that Trump create an assistant to the president for cybersecurity, who would report through the national security adviser, and establish an ambassador for cybersecurity, who would lead efforts to create international rules. It urged steps, such as getting rid of traditional passwords, to end the threat of identity theft by 2021 and said Trump’s administration should train 100,000 new cybersecurity workers by 2020.

Steven Chabinsky, a commission member and the global chair of the data, privacy and cybersecurity practice for White & Case LLP…said the group wanted the burden of cybersecurity “moved away from every computer user and handled at higher levels,” including internet providers and product developers who could ensure security by default and design “for everyone’s benefit.”

One commissioner, Herbert Lin of Stanford University, said some senior information technology managers distrust the federal government as much as they distrust China, widely regarded as actively hacking in the U.S.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump would accept the group’s recommendations. Trump won the election on promises to reduce government regulations, although decades of relying on market pressure or asking businesses to voluntarily make their products and services safer have been largely ineffective.

Though Trump is a prolific user of online social media services, especially Twitter, he is rarely seen using a computer. His campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, tweeted a photograph Monday of Trump working on an Apple laptop inside his office at Trump Tower. He testified in a deposition in 2012 that he did not own a personal computer or smartphone, and in another deposition earlier this year said he deliberately does not use email.

But note…

The Orwellian War Against Skepticism
https://consortiumnews.com/2016/12/01/the-orwellian-war-against-skepticism/

“Yet, what Stengel and various mainstream media outlets appear to be arguing for is the creation of a “Ministry of Truth” managed by mainstream U.S. media outlets and enforced by Google, Facebook and other technology platforms.”

“As veteran war correspondent Don North reported in 2015 regarding this new StratCom, “the U.S. government has come to view the control and manipulation of information as a ‘soft power’ weapon, merging psychological operations, propaganda and public affairs under the catch phrase ‘strategic communications.’”

“Typical of this new McCarthyism, the report lacked evidence that any such network actually exists but instead targeted cases where American journalists expressed skepticism about claims from Western officialdom.”

Protesters Demonstrate During The Republican National Convention
TAMPA, FL – AUGUST 27: Law enforcement officers block a downtown street during a protest on August 27, 2012 in Tampa, Florida. The demonstration was being held just before of the start of the Republican’s nominating convention which will hold its first session on August 28. The convention was scheduled to start on August 27 but was pushed back one day as Tropical Storm Isaac threatens to hit the Tampa area. (Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images)

Jeff Sessions’ Press Releases on TPP:
http://www.sessions.senate.gov/public/?p=search&num=10&filter=0&q=tpp

The Trilateral Commission on how to undermine democracy:

“The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power; political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nationstates involved. As managers and creators of the system, they will rule the future.” ~Barry Goldwater in his l979 book: With No Apologies

“This regionalization is in keeping with the Tri-Lateral Plan which calls for a gradual convergence of East and West, ultimately leading toward the goal of one world government. National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept.” Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National Security Advisor and a founding member of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission.

The economist quote the caller was searching for? “What’s just has been debated for centuries, but let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well, then, tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you – and why?” ~Walter Williams http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2013/06/18/the-20-greatest-quotes-from-walter-williams-n1621952/page/full

Down the rabbit hole on the Charleston shooting with RedSilverJ
https://www.youtube.com/user/ReviewManify

Here is the Judge Napolitano article on speech of governments vs speech of private individuals and enterprises: Protecting Hatred Preserves Freedom..I would add, the government should not make a political statement with a Confederate flag over the Capitol nor with colored lights shining on the White House. Chick Fil A should be able to have a Confederate flag over corporate headquarters or the owners of the Empire State Building should be able to light it up in rainbow colors if they want. Private businesses usually don’t make divisive political statements, however, because they want to serve everyone—something this two party system of government works against.

Here is an easy fast read I liked about the Constitution by Judge Napolitano – I recommend digging much deeper, but it’s a good start:

Here are the articles that make me wonder if the Sons of Confederate Veterans was deliberately infiltrated and transformed from being an organization to maintain Confederate graveyards to “fighting for the right to display Confederate symbols everywhere from schools to statehouses.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Wilson_(politician)

Here is the excerpt from a mainstream news article that I read on the air:

“…when asked about one of Georgia’s two statues in the U.S. Capitol – that of Alexander Stephens – Lewis turned steely, and made clear he wants that marble likeness replaced by his state legislature.
“I want to see it go,” Lewis said. “I don’t like taking young people on a tour and telling them that this was the Vice President of the Confederacy.”
“We have to get our own house in order,” Lewis said. “We have to have a cleansing in this place.”
Stephens may be best known for a speech he gave in Savannah, Georgia before the shooting started in the Civil War – known as the “Cornerstone Speech” – in which he bluntly set out the differences between North and South.
“They assume that the negro is equal, and hence conclude that he is entitled to equal privileges and rights with the white man,” Stephens said of slavery opponents.
“Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests upon the great truth, that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery – subordination to the superior race – is his natural and normal condition,” Stephens continued.

But the real context of the speech was not laying out the difference between North & South or between slave-holders and abolitionists, but between the founders of the Confederacy and Thomas Jefferson and most of the Founders of the United States! Here is the full context…

The new constitution has put at rest, forever, all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institution — African slavery as it exists amongst us — the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. This was the immediate cause of the late rupture and present revolution. Jefferson in his forecast, had anticipated this, as the “rock upon which the old Union would split.” He was right. What was conjecture with him, is now a realized fact. But whether he fully comprehended the great truth upon which that rock stood and stands, may be doubted. The prevailing ideas entertained by him and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old constitution, were that the enslavement of the African was in violation of the laws of nature; that it was wrong in principle, socially, morally, and politically. It was an evil they knew not well how to deal with, but the general opinion of the men of that day was that, somehow or other in the order of Providence, the institution would be evanescent and pass away. This idea, though not incorporated in the constitution, was the prevailing idea at that time. The constitution, it is true, secured every essential guarantee to the institution while it should last, and hence no argument can be justly urged against the constitutional guarantees thus secured, because of the common sentiment of the day. Those ideas, however, were fundamentally wrong. They rested upon the assumption of the equality of races. This was an error. It was a sandy foundation, and the government built upon it fell when the “storm came and the wind blew.”

Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests upon the great truth, that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery — subordination to the superior race — is his natural and normal condition.

I didn’t understand the distinction the caller was making about the stars and bars…this should clear it up… IMG_20150627_175610

Rahm Emanuel 3.0, or "Crisis Initiation" (new glossary entries)

Confederate_Veterans_Capitol_1944-564x489
Interesting picture, huh? Here’s the blurb that came with it… Eight Confederate Veterans on the steps of the Capitol in Montgomery, attending the last known Confederate Veterans reunion in the state. Description Standing, left to right: General William Banks of Houston, Texas; General W. W. Alexander of Rockhill, South Carolina; General J. D. Ford of Marshall, Texas; General T. H. Dowling of Atlanta, Georgia; General James W. Moore of Selma, Alabama; Colonel W. H. Culpepper of Atlanta, Georgia; and General W. M. Buck of Muskogee, Oklahoma. Seated in front is Dr. R. A. Gwynne of Birmingham, Alabama, the only African American to attend the reunion. This image was used and identified in the Alabama Historical Quarterly, Volume 6, page 6 (1944). Date 1944 September 27-28

For more on this picture click here.

I just noticed that the same organization that precipitated the Supreme Court case against the State of Texas for the right to put the Confederate flag on the license plate, is the one Governor Deal is dealing with now to redesign a plate in Georgia. It’s called the Sons of Confederate Veterans and it is a 30,000+ organization of descendents of Confederate soldiers that for almost 100 years dedicated itself to preserving war memorials and the memory of confederate soldiers. In the 1990s however, there was a struggle for power at this organization as the League of the South, a newly formed and very different organization, infiltrated and politicized the group, making the new goal “fighting for the right to display Confederate symbols everywhere from schools to statehouses.” This prompted me to add a few new entries to my glossary, in particular, Crisis Initiation, but also LIHOP & the Rahm Emanuel Doctrine.
