Forum down

Posted by Alex Linder in Alex Linder at 11:03 pm | Permanent Link

The forum is down, I believe due to a simple technical glitch. Unfortunately our web IT guy is out of town this week and checking in sporadically. So I don’t know when exactly the forum will be back up, but when I do I’ll let you know. –A.L.

      Our Time of Universal Deceit Needs An Orwell
      By Paul Craig Roberts

      If we were to be blessed with a 21st century George Orwell, he would coin a new “speak” to apply to “support the troops.” Would he call this “Deceptive Speak”? Or would he be more clever?

      The words certainly deserve an Orwellian name. The catch-phrase was rolled out the minute the war started, which makes one wonder about its public relations origin. Who can oppose supporting the troops, at least before we learned from WikiLeaks and Abu Ghraib of the intentional killing of civilians and torturing of whoever happened to be rounded up in the various sweeps? All for the fun and games of it.

      “Support the troops” originated in the public relations department of the military/security complex. What “support the troops” really means is to support the profits of the armaments industry and the neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony.

      “Support the troops” is a clever PR slogan that causes Americans to turn a blind eye to the brutal exploitation of our soldiers and military families for profit and for an evil ideology.

      Our soldiers and military families are paying for the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neocon wars with lives, limbs, post-traumatic stress, suicides, broken marriages, children without fathers, wives without husbands, and parents without sons and daughters.

      “Support the troops” is one of the most cruel hoaxes in human history, and yet the vast majority of the population has fallen for it. “War Is Peace.”

      When a people are so gullible, it is little wonder that they can be marched off to unaffordable open-ended wars based on nothing but lies, deceptions, and fabrications.

      America produces an endless supply of material for a new Orwell. Imagine what an Orwell could do with Hilary’s recent speech on America’s firm commitment to dissent and the First Amendment. CIA veteran Ray McGovern stood with his back to Hillary in an act of dissent from the Obama administration’s policy of coercing Internet companies into helping to eliminate WikiLeaks as a source of information. McGovern was dragged beaten and bloody from the room, while Hillary continued praising America’s commitment to dissent and freedom of information.

      To capture this level of hypocrisy requires a George Orwell. “Dissent Is Subversion.”

      “Globalism” is another doctrine that needs Orwell’s illumination. Globalism, which presidents since Clinton have told us we can’t do without, enriches transnational corporations and turns workers into serfs who cannot earn enough to pay their bills. “Poverty Is Wealth.”

      The police state measures that accompany the fake “war on terror” subject Americans to far more danger and insecurity than could ever be realized from terrorists other than those of the state itself. “Captivity Is Freedom.”

      In his marvelous book, The Emotional Lives Of Animals, Marc Bekoff describes the devastating impact on animals of being kept in small cages. US soldier Bradley Manning has been kept illegally in an even smaller cage for eight months with no end in sight. At his press conference on March 11, one reporter found the courage to ask President Obama about the conditions of Manning’s confinement. The great and noble president of the United States replied that he had asked the Pentagon and was assured that the conditions of Manning’s confinement “are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards.” Only a George Orwell could do justice to an American president who thinks that keeping a US soldier in conditions worst than those that drive caged animals insane is “appropriate.”

      The US government, which is profligate in its wars, profligate in tax cuts and bailouts for the mega-rich, and profligate in giving unlimited monopoly power to unregulated financial institutions, blames the resulting financial crisis on “handouts” to the poor and “entitlements” to the elderly. Such deception needs more than exposure. It cries out for a 21st century Orwell.

      The King of The Misers

      Daniel Dancer is the world’s most miserly man as per records. In fact he has attained post-humus fame for his legendary miserliness. His entire life was devoted for miserly pursuits. He has been tagged as the King of Misers as his exploits would put any miser to a blue shame.

      Dancer was the son of a miser and the grandson of another. On their death he inherited a tract of land in northern London, which provided him with a considerable annual income. His food, however, consisted of one meal a day: a meager scrap of meat and a single cold dumpling. On one occasion he found a dead sheep in a field. despite the repelling odor from the decomposing body, Dancer took it home and had it made into mutton pies – which he kept locked in a trunk.

      Another time, his neighbor Lady Tempest sent him a gift of a trout cooked in claret. The weather was frosty and the trout arrived frozen. To save requirements for heating it, Dancer sat over the fish until it was thawed enough to be eaten.

      Dancer slept in a sack, and his clothes consisted largely of rags and bundles of straw.. He did have one sartorial extravagance: once a year he would buy a second hand shirt, which he would then wear until it fell to pieces. When his supplier of shirts overcharged him by three pence, he took her to court. He avoided any danger of being sued himself when his dog began worrying sheep: he took it to the local blacksmith and had its teeth filed down.

      On one of his rare visits to London, he was mistook for a beggar and tossed a halfpenny. Dancer pocketed it, “Every little helps,” he commented. He contrived to fill a snuff-box which he always carried about with him. When the box was full, he used it to barter for candles. If he had insufficient snuff for candles, he preferred to sit in the dark.

      In 1766, his sister, who worked as his housekeeper fell ill. He refused to call a doctor, saying “Why should I waste my money in wickedly endeavoring to counteract the will of Providence? If the old girl’s time is come…she may as well die now as at any future period.”

      Miss Dancer was looked after by Lady Tempest, to whom she intended to leave her fortune. However, when Miss Dancer died, it was learnt she had not prescribed a Will, and Dancer managed to acquire two-thirds of the estimate by claiming 30 years back rent for her accommodation and food.

      Dancer delighted in hiding his money in obscure places, such as under piles of farmyard manure. He was so terrified he would be robbed that he barricaded himself in his house.

      Finally, Dancer died in 1794. The kindly Lady Tempest inherited his estate. Unfortunately, while she had been nursing Dancer on his deathbed, she had taken ill. Within four months she, too, was dead.

      What is worse? Wolves in sheeps clothing, or sheep in Wolves ?clothing? Remember O’Brien? Took in Winston, into the supposed resistance to Big Brother, on to turn out as Winstons torturer.
      Winston wasn’t very jew-wise, or he would have caught on to Big Brothers Hate of “Goldstein” as nothing more than a 3 stooges act.

      Dissent on the net is perhaps getting squashed.

      NNNF had been off line a few times over the last week, and now has been off line since yesterday.

      STASI, Know how recycled for US, as Mr. Roberts has nailed situation squarely and clearly.

      HAMMOND | Opening arguments are scheduled to begin today in a civil trial against notorious “Nose Doctor” Mark Weinberger and a physician assistant.

      The lawsuit — one of hundreds filed against Weinberger — alleges the former doctor and physician assistant Joe Clinkenbeard negligently caused the death of Phyllis Barnes in September 2004.

      Weinberger, a former Merrillville ear, nose and throat doctor, did not appear Monday for jury selection in Lake Superior Court in Hammond. Clinkenbeard was there throughout the proceedings.

      In Barnes’ family’s suit, attorney Kenneth J. Allen alleges Weinberger diagnosed Barnes, of Valparaiso, with nasal polyps and a deviated septum rather than the cancer she actually had. Allen argues Weinberger’s actions were not mistakes but rather an intentional scheme to make money doing unnecessary surgeries.

      Weinberger’s attorney, James Hough, asked potential jurors Monday whether they understood that sometimes cancer can’t be caught or, if caught, may be too advanced to save the patient. He also warned jurors that they may not like Weinberger but asked if they could separate that dislike from the facts in the case.

      Weinberger disappeared during a family trip to Greece shortly after Barnes’ death in 2004.

      Hundreds of state medical malpractice suits cropped up in his absence. Federal grand juries indicted Weinberger in December 2006 on criminal charges he billed insurance companies for procedures he didn’t perform.

      But Weinberger continued to elude authorities until Dec. 15, 2009, when he was captured on an Italian mountainside. A guide on the mountain tipped off officials that the former Merrillville doctor was living in a tent with high-tech survival gear.

      Weinberger returned to the U.S. facing myriad legal woes.

      He pleaded guilty in federal court in October to 22 counts of health care fraud for billing the insurance companies of almost two dozen patients for surgical procedures he did not perform, court records state.

      The plea agreement, which is pending acceptance by Chief Judge Philip Simon, calls for Weinberger to serve four years in prison. He would have faced more than 100 years behind bars if convicted of the charges without the plea deal.

      Sentencing in that case is scheduled for April 27.

      Weinberger also faces more than 350 state medical malpractice suits, as well as a federal lawsuit filed by his malpractice insurance provider.

      The youngest sister of Daniel Dancer, Debi, moved to the Bay Area in 1966. While attending a psychedelic light-show at the Winterland Ballroom she met a small, shabby-looking man with a guitar. He said he was Jesus Christ and the Devil. He had just been paroled from a Federal prison in Santa Monica after serving 7 years of a 10 year sentence for stealing cars and pimping. He composed a song for Debi on the spot with his guitar. Three days later he moved in to her apartment, gave her some LSD and they had mind-blowing sex.

      Lady Tempest recovered from her death and moved in with Debi and the strange little man. Soon they had a VW Microbus and together they drove up and down the Pacific Coast Highway, picking up several hippies along the way. The strange little man, known, among other aliases, as No Name Maddox, talked about an upcoming Race War called the Plastic Ono Band that would destroy civilization. He said he found a shack near Death Valley where they could hide out until the war was over. Then he said they would all rule the world together.

      Lady Tempest became the little man’s most enthusiastic follower. She would steal food out of dumpsters and restaurants and prepare amazing meals for the Family, including No Name’s favorite, mutton pie made from decomposing sheep carcasses.

      One day in 1969 No Name asked his followers if they would be willing to die for him, to kill for him. Debi said she wasn’t sure but Lady Tempest said she would do anything No Name asked her to. So he told her and Debi to get several frozen trout cooked in claret and to borrow Daniel Dancer’s 1958 Ford Fairlane (he was the King of the Misers and would therefore never buy a new car), put the frozen trout in the car’s trunk and drive it to an exclusive address in the Hollywood Hills. The Plastic Ono Band was about to begin.
