Freedom Tower Renamed

I don't know why they would do this, but the new name, One World Trade Center, stinks of globalization. Oh not to mention the several floors reserved for the China Center. Oh now I get it, the company is Chinese. I can't help but feel some outrage at this, taking Freedom out of the name makes sense though since China hates freedom and wants to enslave the world with their Communism. I guess it no longer makes it a memorial to those who were lost, or their families, like it was meant to be. Now its just gonna be a big gleaming memorial to the death of our freedom. Congratulations Vantone and the N.Y. Port Authority, you are the first winners of the American Free Thinker *FUCK YOU* award. AFT

My Political Science Education

I guess the joke is I don't have any formal education concerning the field of politics. I started blogging as a way to express the thoughts that were buzzing around inside my head. It has turned into an education. I have learned so much about our government and how it works and how it was intended to work. I am forced to rethink alot of my views. I used to be a Democrat, yesterday I wrote that I thought I might be Republican, well that turned out to be false. As near as I can figure a label for what I am, politically speaking, would be something like Jeffersonian-Constitutionalist. I beleive the Constitution is sacred, and freedom should have no limits. I have come to a realization that big business is good for America. The big issue I've learned is that balance is key to positive economic growth. Balance between left and right. Balance between Supply and Demand. The jobs that create the supply left this country, mostly. The people that lost those jobs are being thrifty about their money, so demand is dropping off. Which sets off a chain reaction, the companies aren't making enough money so they start laying off employees, who then in turn start being thrifty with their money, demand drops off even more. This cycle continues until, bankruptcies close companies, we have warehouses full of stuff nobody can afford. Hopefully someone will say let's sell all this stuff in these warehouses at $1.00 a piece. Then the people have to figure out how to employ themselves, it's do something productive or your family starves time. Let's assume that people start to have a little money in their pockets, from homespun business, they start buying up all that stuff at a $1. Now all of sudden everybody wants one of those incredibly cheap doodads, and the supply is getting short. Someone will begin to manufacture them, and they'll have to hire people to run the machines, and then voila jobs are created. Jobs mean that people now have a steady source of income. They become less thrifty, and start buying more stuff, increasing demand. Now supply has to be raised to meet the demand, balance remember, more people get jobs, more people spend money, more products are available to be purchased. We lived fairly well during "rich" times, now we all have to struggle through with "poor" times until the balance restores itself. Thats the economic cycle, as far as my undereducated brain can grasp it.
Now if we could just figure out how to balance the leadership between right and left.
I want to use this post as a jumping off point, I want everyone who reads this blog to start debating how we can fix the country, and restore the Constitution. Comment away as long as it is productive, maybe we common men can solve the problem, like our founding fathers did.

Note: The first rule and last five (or six, depending on situation) rules are generally not directly within the ability of the traditional disinfo artist to apply. These rules are generally used more directly by those at the leadership, key players, or planning level of the government.

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it, especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it's not reported, it didn't happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the "How dare you!" gambit.

3. Create rumor mongers. Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such "arguable rumors". If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a "wild rumor" which can have no basis in fact.

4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent's argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent, opponent arguments, situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary attack the messenger ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as kooks, right-wing, liberal, left-wing, terrorists, conspiracy buffs, radicals, militants, racists, religious fanatics, sexual deviates, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internetand letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism reasoning-- simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent's viewpoint.

7. Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could so taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.

8. Invoke authority. Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough "jargon" and "minutiae" to illustrate you are "one who knows", and simply say it isn't so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources.

9. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues with denial if they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.

10. Associate opponent charges with old news. A derivative of the strawman usually, in any large-scale matter of high visibility, someone will make charges early on which can be or were already easily dealt with. Where it can be foreseen, have your own side raise a straw man issue and have it dealt with early on as part of the initial contingency plans. Subsequent charges, regardless of validity or new ground uncovered, can usually then be associated with the original charge and dismissed as simply being a rehash without need to address current issues. So much the better where the opponent is or was involved with the original source.

11. Establish and rely upon fall-back positions. Using a minor matter or element of the facts, take the "high road" and "confess" with candor that some innocent mistake, in hindsight, was made, but that opponents have seized on the opportunity to blow it all out of proportion and imply greater criminalities which, "just isn't so." Others can reinforce this on your behalf, later. Done properly, this can garner sympathy and respect for "coming clean" and "owning up" to your mistakes without addressing more serious issues.

12. Enigmas have no solution. Drawing upon the overall umbrella of events surrounding the issue, and the multitude of players and events, paint the entire affair as too complex to solve. This causes those otherwise following the matter to begin to lose interest more quickly without having to address the actual issues.

13. Alice in Wonderland Logic. Avoid discussion of the issues by reasoning backwards with an apparent deductive logic in a way that forbears any actual material fact.

14. Demand complete solutions. Avoid the issues by requiring opponents to solve the problem at hand completely, a ploy which works best for items qualifying for rule 10.

15. Fit the facts to alternate conclusions. This requires creative thinking unless the act was planned with contingency conclusions in place.

16. Vanishing evidence. If it does not exist, it is not fact, and you won't have to address the issue.

17. Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can "argue"with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.

18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can't do anythingelse, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses, which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how "sensitive they are to criticism".

19. Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the "play dumb" rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a shredded govt. study). In order to completely avoid discussing issues may require you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance.

20. False evidence. Whenever possible, introduce new facts or clues designed and manufactured to conflict with opponent presentations as useful tools to neutralize sensitive issues or impede resolution. This works best when the crime was designed with contingencies for the purpose, and the facts cannot be easily separated from the fabrications.

21. Call a parliamentary committee study, Supreme court test, or other empowered investigative body. Subvert the (process) to your benefit and effectively neutralize all sensitive issues without true public input. Once convened, the evidence and testimony are required to be acceptable to the committee or court as evidence when properly handled, damaging evidence can be discarded. For instance, if you own the judicial or committee officials, it can insure an official hearing hears no useful evidence and that the evidence is sealed, refused or buried and unavailable to subsequent investigators. Oncea favorable verdict (usually, this technique is applied to find the govt. innocent, but it can also be used to obtain authority when seeking to extend govt. powers) is achieved, the matter can be considered officially closed.

22. Manufacture a new truth. Create your own expert(s), group(s), author(s),leader(s) or influence existing ones willing to forge new ground via scientific, investigative, or social research or testimony which concludes favorably. In this way, if you must actually address issues, you can do so authoritatively.

23. Create bigger distractions. If the above does not seem to be working to distract from sensitive issues, or to prevent unwanted media coverage of unstoppable events such as trials, create bigger news stories (or treat them as such) to distract the multitudes.

24. Silence critics. If the above methods do not prevail, consider removing opponents from circulation by some definitive solution so that the need to address issues is removed entirely. This can be by their meeting with an accident, an arrest and detention, blackmail or destruction of their character by release of damaging information, or merely by proper intimidation with blackmail or other threats.

25. Vanish or seek less contentious employment. If you are a key holder of dirty secrets or otherwise overly operationally illuminated and you think the heat is getting too hot, to avoid the issues, vacate the kitchen. Find a cozy non controversial plumb in the public or private sector (secured with your party loyalty) and evade the heat your policies have created. Or if you really F****ED up a lot of people, vacate to a third world dictatorship that understands your brand of politics where your tax swollen bank account will allow you to live like a king.

After the first time I read this, I began to look at all politicians very differently. I hope everyone reads this. It is eye opening. Go ahead and make your own copy and spread it around. The file came without mention of an author, or credit would be given. AFT

True American Hero

I'd like to honor Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor. Mike threw himself on a grenade in Iraq to save the lives of a group of Navy Seals. Mike was not a Seal, he was EOD. During Mike Monsoor's funeral in San Diego , as his coffin was being moved from the hearse to the grave site at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery , SEAL's were lined up on both sides of the pallbearers route forming a column of two's,with the coffin moving up the center. As Mike's coffin passed, each SEAL, having removed his gold Trident from his uniform, slapped it down ,embedding the Trident in the wooden coffin. The slaps were audible from across the cemetery. By the time the coffin arrived grave side, it looked as though it had a gold inlay from all the Tridents pinned to it. Mike was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, posthumously.
God Bless our Troops.
God Bless America.
I received these pictures and the story in an email. Facts are not verified, but I believe it. AFT
