I went looking for tutorials on how to play piano like Philip Glass. Found this:

Awwwww wow. Wish I could play like that.......haha.

If you tolerate this.....

Seems appropriate.....

Bloody adverts

Ron Paul - Enemy of the People - Rivero doesn't notice

Paul Paul said social programs -- medical care and other benefits -- have pushed Greece to the edge, and the United States should take note.

"The big message there is the fact that the people who are seeing they are losing their benefits and their free medical care and all, are rioting in the streets," Paul said. "That is the problem, and we are not immune from that."


Catch that?

Ron Paul says social programs pushed Greece 'to the edge'. America should take note, he says. And cut them right back, obviously. But then the people who benefit from those social programs will 'riot in the streets'.....and 'that is the problem' he says.

So, he's admitting his program to attack 'benefits and medical care' will lead to 'rioting in the streets'. The problem for Ron is not the sharp attack on Greek conditions but the rioting in response. Right.....

Although Rivero headlines this story about Ron Paul, he's also posting stories about the riots in Athens. Bit difficult to endorse both, isn't it?

Here's Rivero, standing at the barricades fighting for the things he supports Ron Paul for opposing.

Hilariously even after posting the Ron Paul stuff Rivero can still posture as a man of the people standing at the barricades -

Incredible, no?

I can't help mentioning that Ron Paul is quoted giving an incredibly stupid answer to 'solving the deficit':
The Texan is no fan of the Federal Reserve and suggested Monday the United States should eliminate the Fed as a way to reduce the deficit.

"We owe, like, $1.6 trillion because the Federal Reserve bought that debt, so we have to work hard to pay the interest to the Federal Reserve," Paul said. "We don't, I mean, they're nobody; why do we have to pay them off?"

However, the Fed returns the interest earned on those holdings to the federal government. Last year, the Fed sent $79 billion to the Treasury.
The Fed bought the debt, and "we have to pay interest on it"? Well, that's fine because the Fed is "we" pays the interest it earns to the US Gov Treasury. DUH!!!

He's not that stupid, is he? How about his supporters?

Errrr, hold on?

An astonishing bit of spin at WRH today.

Israeli propaganda?

The link given leads to a Yahoo blog which mentions a German anti-racist initiative, which appears to be an effort to educate football fan-clubs about the presence of the far-right, and ways to spot them. It says the far-right are blending-in more, and are harder to spot. Especially as swaztikas and such like are banned in Germany.

The Yahoo blog says:
The swastika, unmistakable symbol of Nazi power, has been banned in Germany for some time. However, neo-Nazis are finding ways around that law, initiating alternate graphics and codes to promote their Hitler-inspired beliefs.

A new brochure titled "Hide and Seek," featured in German news magazine Der Spiegel, explains the troubling trend. Of course, the symbols appear innocuous so most people don't recognize them as anything hate-driven. The neo-Nazi signs can be seen on banners at sporting events, as tattoos, etc. Michael Weiss, author of the brochure, told Der Spiegel that its purpose is to raise public awareness of the current generation of neo-Nazi codes, especially among teachers and social workers and others with access to German youths.
The brochure[in German] is here.

Looks serious enough. Yet WRH relate it as "Latest Israeli propaganda Nazis=Palestinians". Gross. The Yahoo article only mentions that
Der Spiegel points out the example of the kaffiyeh scarf, a longtime symbol of Palestinian nationalism, which neo-Nazis have adopted not as a symbol of support for Palestine but of the fight against Israel."
Nevermind that the contents of the brochure and its claims are surely true, eh Rivero? Nevermind that the finger of accusation is pointing at you.....for playing the exact same game of 'hide and seek' which the brochure seeks to expose.....

And quite a crucial distinction there between "support for Palestine" and "the fight against Israel". They aren't the same thing, but they can and do overlap. There's a lot of Nazi activity in that overlap and supposed supporters of Palestine, like Rivero, better deal with it. But he doesn't. Rather Rivero publishes them, has them on his radio show, repeats their lies. They're his colleagues and his content.

Then he has the gall to act sagacious. A true man of honour! Sure.

Me vs Cat

I so love making music. I feel sure I am as likely to produce a masterpiece as the cat.

That's how I judge my own music. Against the cat. What has he ever done? My own music is the glory of an ape in a clearing, struggling to make beautiful sounds. Watch the monkey try?

The cat? Nothing.

I win.

So there.

And where's your blog, puss?

The protests are against cuts. They are against cuts in spending. Get that right, at least, Mr Billionaire.

And suddenly billionaires are smart and clever people again, not agents of the globalist, NWO, neo-liberal, Police-state, total info-tyranny nightmare thingummie?

The article itself (not written by the billionaire) even says:
Rumors abound of a QE3 policy, or Operation Twist being necessary if the economy deflates in July or August....
Deflation has to remain the far bigger fear. How stupid will the cutters look if there's another deflationary episode? Demand drives economies, surely. No demand, no nothing. Dig holes, whatever.

'The Audacity of Hope' stopped? Jooos blamed.

--- "The government of Greece just showed themselves to every bit the whores for Israel that the US and Canadian governments are!" ----

Because Israel rules the world, everyone knows. And Israel tells Greece just what to do.....of course. And Greece isn't just a sellout, she's being Israel. Typical!

The story goes that Greece is beholden to the IMF, and because the IMF is obviously run by and for Joooos, then Greece has to stop the flotilla. Well, obviously, no? Nicely done, Mr Rivero.

--- "Shame on everyone who stands by and allows Israel to starve the people of Gaza for daring to want their own government for their own land." ---

Hmmm. A smidgeon partisan, perhaps. :D

So how does Israel pay the piper at the IMF? Such fantasy.

Yeah, really classy.

Dirty compared to.....Al Qaida, say? Or Hamas? or Assad? Or....whatever....

Rivero's Fancy Phone

Here's a radical suggestion for Mr Rivero - rather than begging for donations every few weeks, why not switch your f-ing fancy phone off? Or hell, maybe even get a job, huh?

What's an IPhone cost? £400? A hosted website.....£10+ a month? A blog.....zilch.

Only a few weeks ago he had a full weeping string section backing his sickly mush about how important the 'independent' media was, and could he have some of the punters' dough.....

Following the Japanese Tsunami he asked for donations towards a *new* radiation meter, or some such.

And then there was the supposed hacker attack after the Bin Laden assassination, which somehow needed money to deal with. (How does someone hacking your host's web-server cost anything?)

Then there was the dodgy advertiser, who did more harm than good, apparently. Beg beg beg. Get a blog if you're too skint to run a lousy website? Get a job? Or give up?

All these people expecting "truthseekers"? to bail them out all the time. David Dees went to the Nazis cap-in-hand so as to fix-up his cat? (!) Rys2Sense put out the bowl for a new digital camera......because he cracked his own filming his Jujitsu......? Tidy. Kerching.

Oh, and not to forget Alex Jones' MoneyBombs.

What a bunch of (begging) clowns. People want to make a living out of it? Why? Why should it be able to sustain ***THEIR*** websites and ***THEIR*** lifestyle? Suddenly "market forces" are a little too brutal, it seems. Charity is somehow more worthy and less debilitating than 'subsidy'. Mises was subsidised in USA, the Mises Institute still is. Jokers.

So we have Rivero's unseemly begging whilst his pictures present him at the heart of some nerve centre - he's surrounded by supposedly hi-tech "oh look shiny!" gubbins. Finger on the pulse, see. People usually sell possessions when they need money. Hint, hint.

Rivero, at Cape Canaveral, or so he pathetically likes to try and make out:

Gotta love that old tape machine in the last old is that? Is that supposed to look hi-tech?

Alex Jones is after much the same deal but he clearly has considerably more money and much better design skills than Rivero. His "nerve centre" is far more convincing, and he has way more flashy lights. He also has TV screens showing senseless sparkly animations. Wooo! He's right at the Info-Junction.....

Jones (or one of his band of orcs) puts Rivero in the shade over aesthetics and design. I don't like it, but it's simply way better than anything Rivero has ever done. Yet Rivero is supposed to be the visuals guy? Special FX, animation? And yet all his stuff looks like shit? His HomebakedEntertainment website....supposedly touting for's awful. What a load of rubbish.
Web site of Home Baked Entertainment.

Home Baked Entertainment is a Commercials house that handles computer animation, music, feature film effects, and live ...
I find it impossible to believe the junk on there. I find it impossible to believe a supposed 'movie special FX' bod would make such awful, amateur, rubbish. A few weeks in 3DStudio and I could do considerably better.

Take a look at this ad, it's dreadful.

I wouldn't normally care about peoples' poorly made 3D stuff but Rivero makes out he is some SpecialFX guy. Hollywood. Wooo! But look at that rubbish in the advert? And look at his website, and everything he makes? It's visually rubbish, and betrays someone whom lacks a keen visual aesthetic sense. I do, I happily admit. But I don't claim to be some Hollywood SpecialFX guy. I find it very hard to believe that someone so aesthetically-challenged can work in visuals.

Anyway, I'm not surprised he isn't working much with adverts like those and logos like this:

Homebaked Entertainment? Hmmm. Ok. They also do music? But listen to the music on their What did they make that with? The IPhone? What a tune. Presumably one they're showing off...... Crikey.

So, they don't look like graphics people, and they don't sound like music people.

Banned again by Rivero's KKKrew- within minutes

Rivero posted a video about "economics". It's full of the usual "dollar as debt" rubbish. I posted the first two entries (Youtube only allows 100 characters or something), and received a reply....a question.

Before I could answer it, I was blocked. Doesn't take long, does it?

What formidable Troof Warriors these folks are! How they love the cut and thrust of debate! Jokers.

Link to YouTube page

What a shock to find the following quote at the uploader's youtube page:
"The Israeli Lobby owns the Congress, media, Hollywood, Wall Street, both political parties, and the White House."
Here's the vid:

I am really tired of this stupid meme - dollars as debt. What a ridiculous idea. I think it comes from Eustace Mullins.

Their idea is that the Fed loans money out, and asks for interest, so the money can never be repaid. Only problem is it simply doesn't work like that.

Here's the rebuttal of the fallacy:
The video repeats the fallacy that not enough interest is created to repay all the debt. This is not true. Actually, when you make a loan payment, only the principal portion is destroyed. The interest portion goes to bank revenue. That money is re-spent in the economy by the bank or its shareholders and eventually goes towards principal on someone's loan payment. All the loans could technically be paid off without creating any more money.

Unfortunately, the video makes this fallacy a central thesis and ties it to unsustainable economic growth and growing economic disparity. I don't disagree with the conclusions, just with the reasoning behind it. I would rather point the finger at centralized nature of the monetary system which inherently allows a few to exert control over the direction of the economy for their own benefit.
Notice there's nothing about the FED there?

The simple answer is that any interest owed to banks is a bank asset. That asset is eventually disbursed as either interest on deposits, wages to bank staff, dividend payments to shareholders, whatever.

True patriots = Nazis, according to Rivero

AP reports that
"After a lull following the demise of the Idaho-based neo-Nazi Aryan Nations in 2000, anti-government and white supremacist groups and individuals may be reviving in the Inland Northwest. It's a mostly white, mostly rural area with few job opportunities and a history of extreme activists."
Rivero responds with:

No, Mikey boy. There's a difference in the nature and character of the dis-satisfaction. Read the article?

Rivero - Holocaust denial in 2011

The following comments appear at, appended to a republication of a Eustace Mullins article, written in 1981, called "The Holocaust Explained"
Michael Rivero

There is no question that the Nazis were evil people as anyone who marches armed into another's lands to steal them are evil, whether it be Iraq or Palestine. And there is no question that Germany had slave labor camps. And there is no question that a great many people died in those camps.

What begs examination is whether the inmates at those camps died of the typhoid epidemics that swept across Germany towards the end of the war, or whether there was a deliberate program of extermination.

The modern nation of Israel owes its very existence to the latter version of events. Here you had the entire world sacrificing much blood and treasure on the principle that one nation did not have the right to simply grab the land belonging to another people, and you had the founders of Israel seeking the world's permission to do exactly that in Palestine. Without a propaganda device to persuade the world that Israel be allowed to do to Palestine what Germany could not be allowed to do to France, Israel would not exist. So there is no question that motive existed to amplify the events of WW2 in a way that supported the creation of Israel.

A new 'peace' flotilla heading for Gaza

WRH links to a story at Desertpeace, written by Medea Benjamin whom is currently aboard a ship called "The Audacity of Hope" which is intent on breaking the blockade of Gaza. Apparently they are carrying not aid, but letters of support. [Couldn't they post them? Do they have anything for Gilad Shalit?]

Commendable enough in some sense, I suppose. But what about the context?

In another article by the same writer we find some contrasting ideas which seemingly are applied inconsistently to Israel and the USA versus say, Iran, Hamas, PLO, etc.

About intervention in Libya and elsewhere, Benjamin writes:
If the bitter lesson of Iraq and Afghanistan has taught us anything, though, it's that wars of liberation exact a deadly toll on those they purportedly liberate -- and that democracy doesn't come on the back of a Tomahawk missile.
Well, ok. But what about missiles fired indiscriminately into Israel? Does democracy and liberation come on the back of that? Is it any more tolerable? Benjamin doesn't say, not here nor in his writing about the flotilla. How can it not be addressed?

Benjamin writes (of Libya):
Within 24 hours of the announcement, more than 110 U.S. Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired into Libya, including the capital Tripoli, reportedly killing dozens of innocent civilians -- as missiles, even the "smart" kind, are wont to do.
As they do when fired from Gaza into Israel, yes? That is what Israel's blockade of Gaza is intended to achieve - the prevention of supply of arms to Gaza so as to prevent indiscriminate rocket attacks into Israel. And those are certainly not "smart-missiles". Granted, they are less of a military threat than advanced American missiles, but that also makes them far more indiscriminate. Doesn't it matter, Mr/Ms Benjamin?

Benmjamin's article is called "Instead of Bombing Dictators, Stop Selling Them Bombs". Fair enough, I am very sympathetic. But at the same time, what about Iran supplying opponents of Israel? And what about some recognition that Israel is entitled (and obligated) to prevent such supplies? What about some recognition that this is what the blockade is ostensibly supposed to prevent, and which the flotilla's seek to break? Whether the flotillas carry baby-food or missiles, the Israelis cannot know beforehand and regardless, the flotillas undermine the legitimate right of Israel to prevent military supplies reaching its enemies - many of whom are committed to the complete destruction of Israel. Isn't this relevant?

It seems to me to be posturing taking letters to Gaza, seeking to break a legitimate military blockade against a mortal foe of Israel. What about letters to Yemen? The Tamils? The PKK? The whole thing is clearly a provocation imo - the winners are the enemies of Israel. Gaza doesn't need your letters delivered by hand.

Benjamin again:
In 2009 alone, European governments -- including Britain and France -- sold Libya more than $470 million worth of weapons, including fighter jets, guns and bombs. And before it started calling for regime change, the Obama administration was working to provide the Libyan dictator another $77 million in weapons, on top of the $17 million it provided in 2009 and the $46 million the Bush administration provided in 2008.
Sure, but Israel is trying to prevent Hamas obtaining missiles and military supplies - that is the reason for the blockade. What else could it be? Israel wants to treat Gaza like shit just for the hell of it? Sure....

And how much is Iran contributing to Gaza, Hamas, the struggle against Israel? Why not mention that too? And why not recognise the flotilla is being used as part of all that? Any weakening of the blockade makes military supplies to Gaza more possible - in which case what of Benjamin's role then?

Israel says
the activists can unload their cargo either at its Ashdod port or in Egypt, where it could be checked before being delivered by truck to the Gaza Strip.
Why don't the activists accept that if what they really want is to make deliveries, not a provocation? I don't get it. I think it was outrageous the Mavi Marmara carried children and elderly people and still refused to obey repeated Israeli entreaties to stop. Whether the blockade is legal or not, carrying children into such a situation is despicable - it's effectively using children as human shields and putting them in mortal danger, whatever the rights and wrongs of the wider situation. Nobody in the flotilla ever considered that? Have they again taken children along? I hope not.

In his article from the present flotilla, benjamin writes:
Although the Israelis know that our boats will not carry arms and we, the passengers, are committed to nonviolence, they have nonetheless vowed to stop us with a dizzying array of force –water cannons, commandos, border police, snipers, and attack dogs from the military’s canine unit.
The Israelis simply cannot know who or what is aboard. Furthermore, according to the Israelis the blockade must be complete to be legal - they cannot allow some to pass whilst preventing others. Anyway, faced with such opposition, the flotialla is stupid (even if brave) to sail into such a situation. Any casualties will be the responsibility of the flotilla, nobody else's.

Benjamin writes that
Meanwhile, for dictatorial regimes in Yemen, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, U.S. support continues to this day.
Then why aren't you sailing there too, Benjamin?
The U.S. government need not drop a single bomb in the Middle East to help liberate oppressed people. All it need do is stop selling bombs to their oppressors.
And Iran might do that too, maybe? Seemingly not.

ETA Medea Benjamin is founder of CodePink. Lots of things she says I support. She's Jewish too, FWIW.

I don't agree with the specifics of her views on Israel/Palestine though. For example she says:
Instead of calling for talks with the democratically elected government of Hamas, Kerry said: "Hamas has already won one election-we cannot allow them to win another." He ended his speech shouting several times in Hebrew, "Am Yisrael Chai-Israel lives!"
She surely knows the Hamas charter,
The Hamas Charter (or Covenant), issued in 1988, outlined the organization's position on many issues at the time, identifies Hamas as the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine and declares its members to be Muslims who "fear God and raise the banner of Jihad in the face of the oppressors." The charter states "our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious" and calls for the eventual creation of an Islamic state in Palestine, in place of Israel and the Palestinian Territories, and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel. The Charter also asserts that through shrewd manipulation of imperial countries and secret societies, Zionists were behind a wide range of events and disasters going as far back in history as the French Revolution.
Doesn't that make any difference? Yes, Hamas like to claim the charter is no longer operative or some such. But it's asking a lot to believe it, isn't it? Can one legitimately place the security of Israel at risk based on such claims? I wouldn't. We're supposed to believe that all governments lie, etc, but not Hamas? Why believe it? The charter wants Palestine to take the place of ALL of Israel. It holds the World Jewish Conspiracy rubbish to be historic fact. They promote the Protocols. All this isn't going to disappear simply because Hamas say it is 'no longer operative'. What reason is there to believe such long-held views have been so quickly dispensed with? I don't believe it, I see no reason why the Israeli state should. Yet, at least.

Desertpeace - corrects dog story, still manipulates comments

Desertpeace blog has remarkably enough corrected its story (lie) about the dog condemned to stoning by Israeli court.

However, they are still manipulating comments using their sneaky system - it appears as if one's comment gets published but by changing IP address one can see it hasn't been published at all. This is deception.

I posted a comment, asking why Desertpeace had published the article in the first place - a reasonable question, as what reason could there possibly be for publishing it (other than a crude attempt to paint Israel in a bad light?)

The page showed my comment, thus:

However, upon changing IP address via a proxy, the comment has disappeared:

Using another proxy, I posted again:

Using yet another proxy it was obvious the comment again hasn't been published at all:

One wonders why DesertPeace stoops to such deception as a matter of course.

Amusingly enough Desertpeace links include one to "NoMoreCensorship" blog. HA, yeah, right.....

Believe this and still support Ron Paul? Impossible?

"The big lie about capitalism is that everyone can be rich. That's impossible. Capitalism works only if the vast majority of the population are kept poor enough to never quit working, are kept poor enough to accept distasteful jobs society cannot function without. If everyone were a millionaire, who would empty the trash or repair the sewers? It follows that the poorer the general population is made, the greater the worth of the money held by the wealthy, in terms of the lives which may be bought and sold with it. -- Michael Rivero

Funny, because Rivero digs Ron Paul and RP is a radical free-marketeer - a Mises-ian nut.

Here's more of Herr Rivero's anti-socialism:

Previous example of the same

All that anti-socialist vitriol and yet Rivero/WRH can still write things like the very topmost quote attacking capitalism. One can find a fair bit of anti-capitalism amongst Rivero/WRH's whining, yet there's also all the anti-socialism. Odd.

Not many people lurch from socialism to capitalism and back in the space of a day or two. I'd wager nobody really does, at least nobody with a serious view on it.

So this all smacks of opportunism: Rivero pursues whatever line best suits the story of the day. There is certainly no hard principle at work here, nothing steering Rivero and co solidly towards either socialism or capitalism. Their analysis is a complete mess.

We also have the continual (and fabulously irritating) confusion around fascism - Obama's a fascist, apparently. Even as he's criticised for being a communist. And a capitalist. They can't get their story straight?

This reminds me of 1930s Nazi propaganda - the Nazis attacked both socialism and capitalism. Rivero's cultivation of a climate of confusion over the meaning of fascism might also be an indication that it's the real goal - people dislike fascism and therefore confusion (from spurious definitions) might help achieve its acceptance. Bad (and frankly stupid) definitions can be seen as a form of purposeful misdirection - if you don't have an accurate definition, you can't properly spot it.

Plus fascism was originally posited as 'a third way', a solution aiming to avoid the pitfalls of both socialism and capitalism. Proponents of fascism could attack each in turn using the well-worn arguments already developed by socialism and capitalism in respect of one another. Workers were fed socialist-sounding critiques of capitalism; business owners etc were fed the capitalist critiques of socialism. The Nazis were also careful not to offer much beyond vague promises - not that it mattered as they never felt obliged to keep to them anyway.

Prisonplanet/Patriot phony anti-capitalism

Prisonplanet, haters of socialism, lovers of free-trade the extreme RonPaul way, occasionally make use of leftist appeals, garbed in populist (us and them) rhetoric. It's surprising to see such contradictory messages - The Ron Paul Revoltion (pah) alongside stuff such as this:
"THE RAPE OF AMERICA...before assuming that privatization is a good thing, read on."
Sure, but Ron Paul is all for privatisation. Please get your position straight.
Greece is thinking of selling some islands. Austria is thinking of selling mountains to pay off their national debt. Cities throughout the U.S. are thinking of privatizing their parking meters.
But private property is the root of all freedom, at least according to RonPaul and co.
Privatization takes inherently governmental functions — everything from national defense to mass transit and roads — and turns them over to the control of private actors, whose goal is to extract maximum revenue while costing as little as possible.
Yes, and that's what RP wants.....he's a private sector doctor advocating private healthcare, and the privatisation of everything. Jesus, make some sense Prisonplanet, please? One or the other? That's the point - they're neither, really.
Both domestic manufacturing and taxation are opposed by the current corporate and political elites.
Rubbish - Ron Paul is against taxation - Obama is not. Lefties are not. The right in extremis is.
In Chicago, it’s the sale of parking meters to the sovereign wealth fund of Abu Dhabi. In Indiana, it’s the sale of the northern toll road to a Spanish and Australian joint venture. In Wisconsin it’s public health and food programs, in California it’s libraries.
And in Mexico it's mines. Come on guys, 2+2=4 WHAT ABOUT RONPAUL>>>>>? SILENCE.

One has to wonder what this (and MAdsen's paean to socialism) are doing at Prisonplanet, a site that usually blames socialists for the worlds ills.....indeed, the NWO is supposed to be socialism, according to Alex Jones.

It just doesn't make sense. It isn't coherent in the least.

What it is, is opportunism. It's the far-right taking leftist appeals and trying to make them their own - no matter how contradictory or lacking in coherence it is.

For example, this is the more usual position of Prisonplanet, an article criticising Pat Robertson's supposed socialism -and his support for Obama's socialism. Note the taxation thing?
Socialist policies and massive government spending, Robertson told Meeuwsen, will lead to hyperinflation. These policies will send prices skyrocketing through the stratosphere and the value of the dollar will go down the tubes.

Obama’s proposed new taxes — that is to say, taxes to be imposed by the global elite — and his socialist policies will kick this process into overdrive. Expect Obama to call for a one-world currency in order to deal with this manufactured problem.
Read separately those two articles would appeal to different people - the leftwing are sympathetic to the first article, the right to the second. Only when juxtaposed does their contradictory nature appear bloody obvious.

The upshot is, Prisonplanet/Alex Jones have no idea what they are on about. They don't really care, and they don't have to - they don't have principles. All they care about is to undermine confidence in liberal democracy. It's the same tactic the Nazis used - promise anything to anyone, criticise everything. And nobody amongst the audience at Prisonplanet notices? Alex doesn't? Rubbish - they know what they're doing.

Worth noting here that historically fascism positioned itself as "the third way" - neither capitalism nor socialism. It attacked both and in its place offered whatever the audience wanted to hear. I see the same at Prisonplanet, and the wider Troof and Patriot movement. I see it as a symptom of their fascism.

A straightforward comparison, from WIKI:
Nazi anti-socialism : The Nazis claimed that communism was dangerous to the well-being of nations because of its intention to dissolve private property, its support of class conflict, its aggression against the middle class, its hostility to small businessmen, and its atheism.[92] Nazism rejected class conflict-based socialism and economic egalitarianism, favouring instead a stratified economy with classes based on merit and talent, retaining private property, and the creation of national solidarity that transcends class distinction.

Nazi anti-capitalism: The Nazis argued that capitalism damages nations due to international finance, the economic dominance of big business, and Jewish influences within it.[92] Adolf Hitler, both in public and in private, held strong disdain for capitalism; he accused modern capitalism of holding nations ransom in the interests of a parasitic cosmopolitan rentier class.[94] He opposed free-market capitalism's profit-seeking impulses and desired an economy where community interests would be upheld.[95] He distrusted capitalism for being unreliable, due to it having an egotistic nature, and he preferred a state-directed economy.[96] On the issue of capitalist materialism, Hitler said "It may be that today gold has become the exclusive ruler of life, but the time will come when man will bow down before a higher god. Many things owe their existence solely to the longing for money and wealth, but there is very little among them whose non-existence would leave humanity any the poorer."[97] Hitler told one party leader in 1934, "The economic system of our day," referring to capitalism, "is the creation of the Jews."[96] In a discussion with Italian Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, Hitler said that "Capitalism had run its course".[96] Hitler was disgusted by the bourgeoisie and in one conversation stated that business bourgeoisie "know nothing except their profit. 'Fatherland' is only a word for them."[98] Hitler admired Napoleon as a rolemodel for his anti-conservative, anti-capitalist, and anti-bourgeois attitudes.[99]
To Hitler, the economy must be subordinated to the interests of the Volk and its state.
Those are pretty reasonable summaries imo and I think one can see them reflected in Prisonplanet's apparently contradictory positions.

The only other viable explanation for PP's contradictions and incoherence is that they're complete idiots. Certainly possible.

Ron Paul - bringing out the crowds

Here's a crowd of people appealing to Ron Paul.

The problem is these people want saving from Ron Paul. Or more accurately from his wish to enrich himself at the expense of these peoples' environment.

Ron Paul has significant investments (a cool $1m) in precious metal mining corporations. The people in the photo above are protesting against Ron Paul and co getting fat at their expense - the protest is against Vista Gold, a company Ron Paul has invested in.

The protest website VISTAGOLD NO! is here

Ron Paul says "YES!" "toxic mining" somebody else's country. Oh, good.

The residents say no:
Toxic Open Pit gold Mining

(we welcome mining that does not use toxic substances or explosives)

I wish to express my total support for a sustainability in Baja California Sur. We are in time to detain and prohibit Toxic Open Pit Gold Mining as well as activities that pose a serious risk to the environment such as the use of cyanide.

I oppose Toxic Open Pit Gold Mining because I believe that the approximately 200 created by these projects does not justify the destruction to the unique ecosystems in our state and nation, that they do not justify the risk to our economy, our health, our environment and to the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve.
From elsewhere:
Vista Gold of Colorado, representing two Canadian mining firms, has applied for exception to the Sierra Laguna Biosphere protection to operate an open pit gold mine.

Agua Vale mas que Oro! (Water is worth more than Gold!) was chanted repeatedly at the protest rally
Ah who cares, Ronnie wants his cash! Damn eco-nazis, eh?

Gold mining is a filthy, energy-intensive business. But Mexico is right up for it, apparently:
So says Jeffrey Christian, Managing Director of the New York-based CPM Group, a leading commodities research, consulting, asset management and investment banking organization.

“Mexico represents one of the most attractive places in the world for mining, not only in terms of geology but also for its political, economic and regulatory environment. There is also a pro-mining mentality in Mexico. The country is very much open for business,” Christian says. “Also many good quality deposits have gone relatively unexploited over the centuries.”

Conversely, an increasing number of other emerging gold-producing nations are beginning to raise barriers to the building of mines by foreign mining companies.

North American mining companies are not having much better luck on their own soil, he says. “Even in the United States and Canada the barriers to obtaining mine production permits have become greater and greater,” Christian says. For instance, “anti-mining groups” can use the legal system to win a succession of court injunctions, which may delay the commissioning of a mine for years on end, he explains.

Hence, an increasing number of frustrated mining companies are turning their attention to Mexico
Awwww - all that regulation and people power aka local democracy is getting in the way of Ron Paul's juicy investments?

So why go to Mexico? Because of "its political, economic and regulatory environment" - ie the relative absence of those things.

Too many of Ron Paul's supporters fail to understand how this works, and how Ron Paul is playing his part in things they likely imagine themselves to be against. Like the pillaging of nations resources, the extension of global capitalism, etc.

The aricle adds that
Perhaps the best example of how this strategy is paying off in a big way involves the world’s fifth largest gold producer, Vancouver-based Goldcorp Inc. (GG), which just initiated production at its world-class gold/silver Penasquito mine in Zacatecas State in October.
GoldCorp Inc. Ron Paul has investments there too - a sizeable chunk.

Ron Paul also has investments in Newmont, which features in a NYT special here.

"The biggest problem was the people around the mines whom became increasingly angry because they felt their water was being polluted by the cyanide used in the processes."

But nevermind, Ronnie Paul is playing on Wall Street. It's all good.

Here's Ron Paul's substantial investments in mining, revealed during his presidential run in 08:

No doubt we can find similar complaints about environmental destruction and poison mining from all these "faceless unaccountable mega-corporations" as Ron Paul's fans might call them.

Oh, and maybe the "NAFTA super-highway" will be carrying Ronnie Paul's gold back to America?

RonPaul-lover Alex Jones has this at one of his myriad sites:
President-elect Barack Obama recently met with Mexican President Felipe Calderon where he expressed a continued commitment to upgrade NAFTA. Many believe that this proves he will carry through on promises to renegotiate the agreement. It is interesting that the word upgrade was used as opposed to renegotiate. Calderon has publicly stated on many occasions that he is against changes to NAFTA, but more recently he said that he is open to reviewing environmental and labour provisions.
Obviously not to make them more restrictive. All the better for mining! Who needs local people grumbling around the courts holding everything up?

Tut tut Ronnie, fancy getting messed-up with all that? The article even implicates RP as part of the NWO?
A recent report released by the Pentagon warns that globalization and urbanization will further fuel social unrest in Mexico. Political, economic and social instability could be used to usher in a North American Union. We have a short window of opportunity to really turn things around and only an informed educated public will be able to defeat the New World Order.
Somehow multinational mining corporations are excluded from the NWO's machinations? Right, Alex? lol.

I was looking for some other Alex-isms on globalism, and I found two things. 1, Jones writes fewer articles than ever before, and 2, the following recent article which completely contradicts Jones' usual spiel.....
Wayne Madsen
The Intrepid Report
June 17, 2011

What lies in store for Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Italy, and, in short order, the United States, is the wholesale sell-off of public property to private corporations at bargain basement prices. What the despots who gather in their secretive lairs at Davos, Cernobbio, Bilderberg, and G8/G20 are bringing about is a world where no property is owned by the state, which by default means the people. Total corporate control over every facet of life equals extreme fascism.
Errrr - but that's just what Ron Paul wants......Didn't Alex notice that little detail? Gee. What a joke. They can say anything they like.....hardcore free-marketeers one day, anti-capitalist the next. And nobody seems to notice.....

And BTW, that is most certainly not a definition of fascism, Mr Madsen. Quit using the word 'fascism' like that? It doesn't mean that at all.

Additionally, Ron Paul was supported by Peter Thiel, Paypal founder and - gosh! - Bildeberger!!!! Dah dah da!!!!

Bildebergers on Ron Paul's election committee? Oh dear, Alex.....oh dear.

And worse, Thiel's a banker of sorts too. Of electronic money!!!! That's Satan's cash, isn't it, Alex? I thought the cashless society was a sign of THE END (in capitals!)

Here's Prisonplanet about Cashless society: BBC Shills for Cashless Society

And here's Alex giving an Economics 101 - lol - on the cashless society.....

"It's neo-feudalism"...."it's the global control grid".

What a pretentious twat. Economics analyst? What a chump.

Why do none of Jones' hive-mind fans question any of this? Why don't they see any of the contradictions? Over to Larry.......

And Ronnie boy "co-authored a book in 1993 with someone who was to become a member of the Project For A New American Century, Lewis Lehrman, (PNAC)" Oh my......haha.

Here's another of Ron Paul's election committee which Alex wouldn't like (if it were anyone but Ron Paul, obviously):
William E. Dannemeyer: A California ballot initiative he backed, Proposition 102, would have mandated widespread testing, tracing of sexual partners by state authorities, and a mandatory quarantine of persons with AIDS.
Ah, gotta love freeedom.....

Lordy knows what AJ would make if anyone else's election committee had such alumni. Mandatory quarantine? In FEMA camps, eh? lol.
In 1985, Dannemeyer voiced his concern with AIDS, "[People with AIDS] emit spores that have been known to cause birth defects."
Yes of course, everyone knows that. He's just the sort of smart guy we need in politics - get him on our election committee. haha.

More from Danny:
As former congressman William E. Dannemeyer told the nodding listeners, there is no such thing as separation of church and state in America. That is a perversion of the Constitution committed by atheist national leaders and a misguided U.S. Supreme Court, he said.
What a guy!

Back to the bigger picture.

The American Dream
June 18, 2011
In 2011, America is for sale and the communist Chinese are eager buyers. The Chinese government is using sovereign wealth funds and Chinese state-owned enterprises to buy up economic assets and huge tracts of land all over the United States. Many of our politicians hail all of this “foreign investment” as something that is “good for America”, while many others see something much more sinister going on here. In any event, this is a trend that is rapidly accelerating and that is causing great concern among patriotic Americans.
What about the Mexicans!? Suddenly all this is a matter of concern when it's Chinese capital buying American assets. Hardly a surprise to find such concern, is it? But what about those mexicans and their gold? What about Peru Ghana and everywhere else? RP is buying their gold - already has. But that's just fine, apparently. RP's private actions as a capitalist operating through Wall Street investing in multinational corporations is nothing to do with anything, apparently. That's how we spot the bad guys. Sure.

The article adds ".....when we allow foreigners to buy up our own precious oil and gas assets shouldn’t that set off “national security” red flags?"

In Mexico?
