Refugees vs Veterans: A Cost Analysis

Over 4 million veterans are on disability… They are eligible to receive ‘as much as’ $3000 per month for their disability and medical care – max $36,000 per year. Every year more than 8,000 veterans commit suicide.   They are injured, they are traumatized, and they are left to die in waiting rooms at VA Hospitals that are rife with corruption.

The average cost per household of Middle Eastern refugees is about $258,000 over five years, or $51,600 per year. More than 95% of refugees are on welfare receiving free housing, medical care, food, and a stipend after that five year period.  

Even more absurd. It costs the US 12 times in $$$$ what it would cost to provide the exact same services for the refugee were they to resettle in another Middle Eastern country. That means the cost could be reduced to $4300 per year for a household if we simply let them stay where they speak the same language, have the same customs, share in the same morality, ethics and belief system.

This ludicrous solution that we support is so far removed from logic and reality, no one wants to actually analyze the facts and figures.

A conservative estimate states that the US spends about $1 billion per year on refugees. If we continued to provide for all those refugees, albeit in their own region, we would save about $920million ‘per year’ which could be diverted to our Veterans and no one would notice. Except our veterans…of course.

What these numbers do not reflect are the subjective costs. For example, veterans would not be denied jobs that were allocated to refugees. Veterans would not be so reliant on disability if they could have a worthwhile job that was re-allocated to refugees. Crime costs to society.   Education costs?  The dollar savings amass!

And yet, and still, the press and the media continue to harp about the ‘poor refugees’ and the ‘bad veterans’.   Why?

Because the media has an alternate objective. A refugee portrayed as a victim of our military is more entertainment than a veteran who has given his very life and being. It’s like a shell game.   Find the truth under the shell… but not before we take all your money…

They prey on the innocence of youth. They prey on falsification of facts. They prey on the subversion of facts. And they have an outlet that can reach millions – with partial truths, half truths and even out-right lies.

Hollywood dives for these games because that’s what Hollywood does! They act for money! They pretend. They are driven by one and only one God – Money. And the only reason people buy it is because the actors have become that much more adept – at their craft – pretending!   For $$$$$.

The stage, the play, the act, wasn’t always quite so subversive. While their heritage is “The Court Jester”, a step above the poison testers and a step below the prostitutes, today they seem to have created an elitist persona for themselves elevating their prowess to realms of godlike proportions.

Personally, I still see the Court Jester and marvel how so many Hollywooders are self imposed experts in such industries that would normally require PhD status and decades of experience.   They provide ‘expert testimony’ for such scientific theories that are normally relegated to ‘scientists’, and have opinions about everything that apparently earn them prime time news coverage, prime placement in the media, and commentary sections that utilize their ‘expertise’ to defend an intellectual theory… even if their claim to education fame is a GED High School Diploma!

Sadly, to me, they still remain, The Court Jester.

What’s even more disconcerting is that these people – know they have no education – know they have no expertise – know they have no knowledge or wisdom – and still find great victory in – pretending…

 

 

Memorial Day Heroes; Veterans

It is interesting to look up the definition of “Hero”.   Classical definitions include ‘someone of extraordinary courage and strength’, or ‘a defender or protector’. It was used to hail knights and soldiers for the valiant courage in times of war. And then it changed.

Soldiers became sullied with the advent of the 1960’s. They were vilified and attacked. We need a hero, but with the classic military soldier now seen as a villain, there was no replacement. And within that void, more and more cartoon, fantasy heroes came to be created by Hollywood, Superman, Spiderman, Batman, etc… These ‘characters’ became our heroes as we desperately sought a demigod.

We put our faith in a comic book.

And our true heroes, our veterans who sacrificed everything, were shunned.

My father was a part of the Nevada Nuclear tests during the 1950’s in which officers were ordered to stand at attention as the bombs were detonated, washing them in massive amounts of radiation. Enlisted soldiers were told to take cover in the trenches.

Years later, all these officers found that their systems had been irreversibly damaged with various forms of cancer. They all died. My dad included. My father was career. He held to the loyalty of the military and honorably upheld the moral and ethical belief that he had participated in something that was beyond ‘self’.   He sacrificed his very life for the benefit of all Americans signing on for all the associated risks – which included WWII. He believed that it was his duty, and the ramifications were a part of the calling.

While his politics changed during retirement, his loyalty never budged a smidgeon.

I believe with all my heart that we have a duty, a responsibility, an ethic, and a heartfelt requirement, to take care of every single military veteran in every way we possibly can. But it seems that the true understanding of their sacrifice has somehow been obliterated. We honor super heroes that are a fantasy and demonize flesh and blood war heroes.

When my Green Beret brother returned from his third tour of duty in Vietnam he was pelted with tomatoes as he disembarked the plane. The attitude of the 1960’s and 1970’s, our very own generation, lives on today. Now, Hollywood provides us our heroes and too easily we get caught in their web.

I share the belief of peace. I share the belief of tolerance… albeit within logic. But I believe our media has helped to portray our soldiers, our military, for their failures, instead of their honor and accomplishments.

As with the woman at the well, ‘who can throw the first stone’?   Are we not all guilty of heinous grievous hurts?   So how can we absolve ourselves and not absolve others? Truly, there exist degrees.  Meaning the concept of equal responsibility in hurts and guilts just isn’t reality. Sometimes it is quite lopsided.

In that light, whether you agree with the various wars that our veterans have fought is not important, what is important is recognizing that their heart, their conscience, and their ideal, was directed at a much larger picture; protecting you and you and you. And in that, they were willing to die for – you…!  Not on a movie screen, but on a battlefield, desperate, in agony, leaving behind their family, and their life.

This fundamental ethic applies not just to our military acceptance, but to our lives in every aspect that we pursue each and every day.   My brother, who was pelted by his compatriots, is now spending his retirement years helping Christian women who are being wrongfully divorced and/or demonized by their soon to be – ex-husbands.

He continues unabated to do what is right, what is noble, what will bring help to those in desperate need.

My brother deals with the hypocrisy of hearts daily.  But his house is built on rock, and the grass that holds the water of life is rooted in deep rich soil.  Without that rich soil, the shoots and blades of grass haven’t the ability to absorb the nutrients and water, and instead the essence of life pools on the surface never penetrating, never being.  The grass wilts, and dies no matter how much water is continually added.

Talking the good talk is worthy only if one walks the good walk too. God knows this, and thus asked of those judging the woman at the well, who among you are without sin?

This Memorial Day, I honor the talk and walk of my father who gave his life, and my brother who offered his life, and all those I have known throughout my life as an Army brat. Lastly, I would add, the son of my friend Brian who recently sacrificed his life as he fought for ours in the war against ISIS.  He gave everything he had – for us and should be hailed a hero.

TO THE REAL LIFE HERO’S – EACH ONE! WE LOVE YOU!

Thank You So Much For Giving Everything – For the sins of us…

A Military Honor

A few years ago I had the privilege of being invited by my very good friend to a spa event for insurance attorneys. I was quite excited, looking forward to a long weekend of foo-foo pampering, all being paid for by my sweetest of sweet friend!

One evening at a dinner, the conversation somehow riveted to politics. And I quickly learned I was the lone conservative among a thriving ambush of Liberal attorneys. Their voices rising exponentially, their fingers pointing, they stood over the table and literally screamed at me because my views were contrary to theirs.

Despite the fact that it was fifteen against one – they felt threatened enough to make it clear that they were hyena’s and I was a squirrel.

Actually, I left the table in tears and attempted to find a flight out of this ‘paradise’ as quickly as possible. To no avail.

I would say it was my very first experience being attacked by what I would call ‘ a coven of witches’. I was amazed that while advocating for tolerance and goodness and sweet kindness towards all, that they would convene in such a vicious way against me simply because – I disagreed.

The experience obviously remained with me because of its intensity. But worse, my good friend who had invited me, remained a mute fixture, and refused to defend me or come to my rescue, leaving me devastated. When I left the room at a run and immediately got on the telephone trying to find a means of escape, she didn’t come to me, console me, and give me a supportive arm, instead she chose to remain with her colleagues, afraid and embarrassed that she was associated with the – enemy.  And thus, she aligned her priorities.

Years later, I slowly, came to realize exactly the extent to which our friendship was so very superficial. Why did it take years? Because I have a slew of friends all embracing different ideals, but I did believe that friendship was a core value. And unfortunately, I was proven otherwise.

To blame this disparity on Trump is so false. Why? This instance occurred during the Obama administration.

To be sacre-religious, at that point Trump was only a twinkle in God’s eye.

Since then, naively, and with much ‘stupidity’, I slowly came to realize that my friendship was built on a foundation of sand, and however hard it was to recognize, it needed to be – accepted and I need to – let go.  So hard.  We had known each other for decades.  Since junior high.  And yet, there was so very little – else – in common.

I think the point is the fact that this chaos is most certainly NOT a newly created agenda, it has been in the making for decades if not more. I was talking with another friend about the focus of the hiring in the work force and how that age preference is between 28 and say 36. Her immediate response was ‘no’ because look at the lazy millenialls.

In fact, the ‘lazy millenials have been a source of discussion since 500BC when Plato lamented at the immoral, unethical, youth generation who talked back to their parents and had no respect…

In other words, this is a complaint of each and every generation for thousands of years. What make each successive generation different, what makes the Liberals strike out at the solitary figure amongst fifteen? Degrees.  Anarchy.

The sexual revolution is measured in ‘degrees’. Today, a woman enters the this or that festival wearing a sheer drape. Or nothing. It is the same. A woman is measured by how young she looks despite the fact that she is quite – old.   It is the same as thousands of years ago, it is only the degree’s that have changed.

Everyone has a story. But sometimes it is very difficult to see beyond our own and see the devastation wreaked upon others…

Don’t shutter yourself inside your self.

Imagine the story of the veteran?  Imagine the imagery day in and day to, the nightmares, and then think of you own pity and compare…  Your life will be transformed…

As will theirs, if you are willing to take a moment…

ISIS: To Fear or Not To Fear

ISIS has released a statement following the Manchester bombing praising their soldier in the midst of the “Crusaders” as an act of revenge for the transgressions against the lands of the Muslims. “What comes next will be far worse for the Worshipers of the Cross and their allies”.

The implication being that the next attack will target Christians.

Still the media continually tells us ‘do not be afraid’. As though fear is something that will heighten the power of ISIS. That concept elevates them to a supernatural being that feeds on fear, finds its strength in fear. ISIS may be evil in their soul, but they are still mortal in their flesh. Fearing them will not strengthen them – it will strengthen us.

Fear is not the emotion of a coward, ask any soldier. There is not a soldier on any battlefield who does not face fear, feel fear, and ultimately drive that fear as a means to act in courage.

Succumbing to fear is different than having fear.

There are different kinds and sources of fear. When on a battlefield, a soldier defies his fear and uses it to give him strength. That fear evolves into courage as his senses are toned, and the enemy is clearly in his sights.   If we are not afraid of ISIS, then we are allowing ourselves to become sheep at their whim for slaughter.

Succumbing to fear means we tremble and hide, and allow ourselves to become easy targets.

After 9-11, Israel’s Mossad was commissioned to evaluate the safety and security of our airports – after we had implemented Homeland Security and security checkpoints. Nearly all airports still failed the test. We can’t be safe if we under-estimate our enemy. We can’t be safe if we don’t properly understand and fear our enemy. That doesn’t mean we hide, or we act irrationally, it means we apply the intellect and the security measures of the Mossad. Their motto comes from Proverbs 11:14:

“Where there is no guidance, a nation falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.”

The Mossad is the world’s most elite intelligence organization incorporating a unit of assassins under the nomenclature, Kidon.   They perfected the double-agent classification of infiltration. The enemy battlefield today is quite different than previous wars. It isn’t a military unit that can be identified simply by their uniform or their insignia, because the enemy lives among us, basically utilizing the same ‘under-cover’ status that we use in our police forces and CIA.

The supply of battlefield martyrs is virtually endless. Killing them reduces the current defensive forces, but recruitment constantly reorganizes. And this is exactly where Obama seemingly purposefully failed in the fight against ISIS.

Tactically, he spent billions to destroy Syria thus leaving a breeding ground for ISIS to grow stronger. Our weapons stockpile was decimated. Our purpose was deliberately camouflaged. An immigration crisis was created. And ISIS proliferated, sometimes combining forces with al Qaeda and al Nusra.  Why do we even care about the Assad regime?   We shouldn’t.  But Syria was the decoy.  The purpose was to create exactly what we witness today.

Will Trump refocus? Will Mattis?

Yes we should fear. For fear will open our eyes and let us see the enemy, know the enemy, and not under-estimate their will and agenda.

ISIS will not simply disappear.  But if our most elite forces combined with Russia, Europe, Canada, and Israel can not defeat an army of less than 100,000, then we are doomed.

For now, ISIS has stated their next target will be Christians. Be alert. Be fearful. Be strong.

North Korea – Psychology of War

I’ve avoided the North Korea story for some time. But decided to enter into the fray from a somewhat ‘alternate’ perspective, much like all my perspectives.

US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, has joined the ranks of McCain in her assertion that retaliation and bombing ‘em will solve the problem.   If we look at the last 60 years, this mentality has repeatedly – failed and is pronouncement of a failed military intelligence.

Why?  Why have we repeatedly failed?

Multiple reasons, being too soft, not committing, affiliating with the wrong side, and the last agenda – saying one thing while actions speak an entirely different agenda or scenario, as in outright manipulation and lying.

North Korea’s, Kim Jong-un is no exception to the recent rule. We have taken a ‘one solution fits all’ scenario and every woman knows – that’s a bald face lie. Fashion has proven the lie over and over again…  I digress.

  1. Kim Jong Un flunked out of University, paid no attention to his studies and was instead obsessed with American Entertainment. Contrary to the media, he is not savvy, not intelligent, and not a military opponent. What he is – is a psyche. Like Hollywood, he craves attention, he thrives on a false reality, and he wants to be hailed as someone unique and special despite his short-comings.
  2. Instead of addressing this ‘psyche’ we have chosen a one size fits all agenda of either – sanctions or war.  Personally, I’m sick of both.

Kim wants the world to notice him. And if that means creating chaos, his psyche is willing to crumble to that level of narcissistic need. If he were a great leader, if he were truly a gifted, intelligent man, his country would be flourishing, his people would be wealthy, his wealth would be shared, and prominent businessmen would have made their mark in the world of industry, business and finance.

But that hasn’t happened.

He doesn’t want to die. But he wants to fell impenetrable. He wants to feel like he is on the playing board of world politics. He wants to feel important. And this is only way he knows how to achieve that result.

By threatening him with war, missiles, sanctions, destruction, we have failed to address the psychology of the man, and instead have embraced a slovenly, disassociated, inept solution. “When in doubt, bomb ‘em to annihilation”. Think – McCain.

Nikki Haley has joined the McCain ranks. And in so doing has exposed herself as either incapable, or an ally of the McCain/Soros cabal.

In fact, all Kim Jong Un wants is to feel counted, important, and a part of world discussions. We have absolutely nothing to lose in so doing – except maybe some pride. WWI was initiated because of ‘pride’. WWI took 15 million lives and countless million wounded, because a lone assailant took the life of one Archduke Ferdinand of Austria. One man died, and as a result 15 million were sacrificed. That is ‘Pride” at it’s height.

When Trump is willing to open dialogue, I imagine that is really what Kim Jong Un wants more than anything – recognition. Maybe he’s a dictator. Maybe he is heinous. Maybe Assad is heinous? I don’t know. But I don’t want to sacrifice my boys to find out.

Let Russia deal with Syria, let China deal with North Korea, let Venezuela deal with it’s own. We don’t need their oil. We don’t need their debt.   Kim doesn’t want to really bomb anyone, he just wants to ‘appear fearsome’ because he believes that ‘appearance’ will gain him a seat in the world order and countries around the world will thus respect him.

Just look how well our tactic worked in Syria. Perhaps the US wasn’t participating in the bombing so much, but we did use our sub-contractors to excess, including; Saudi Arabia, UAE, Turkey, Al Qaeda and ISIS. And they succeeded in the plan – to annihilate an entire country, create an immigration crisis, and destabilize the world in a manipulated chaos.

Setting our sites on North Korea, we only change the landscape, the result will be the same – if not worse.

Are these enemies real, or are they illusions in order to divert the truth and allow the wolf to devour the entire herd of sheep?

Making Kim Jong Un ‘feel’ powerful is wholly different than him ‘being’ powerful. And if our military Generals are really that weak minded, then maybe we need to find ones who actually ‘get it’ and have more than a tin-man brain. Because utilizing the same failed medications, sanctions, and war, is a lot like our pharma industry that believes that a pill with twenty side effects worse than the disease, is a cure.

War with North Korea is like treating cancer with Advil.  It ain’t going’ to make the world a better place – it will simply make it less populated and our resources, food and livelihood – much like Syria…  Is that what you want?

Syria War – ASK THE PEOPLE

ASK the people – not the POLITICIANS.  This is NOT what we want!  This will undermine everything and cater to the Soros agenda.  Chaos!  He is – smiling.

I truly can not believe the stupidity of analysts that want to start a war with Assad. What the heck will that accomplish? Bombing would hit even more civilians, possibly US troops that we don’t want anyone to know are there, and ‘moderate rebels’ that we claim to support.  Not to mention the casual Russians…  How will that go down in international relations? This is such a McCain/Democrat/Soros laughable fraud, I can’t believe we would even consider such a farse.

The argument on the ‘right’ is that Trump will ‘appear weak if he doesn’t order a war/attack’. Which implies we are willing to go to war based on ‘saving face’???

This of course could also lead to even greater Russia animosity, Iran animosity and the entire caliphate agenda of the Middle East. If we become integral, we are ushering in WWIII. And that is simply not acceptable.

Where is the evidence? Our President demands evidence for our local and national conspiracies, and yet is NOT asking for evidence that Assad is the culprit based on such media citations as ‘Assad dropped chemical bombs on civilians’. This is the same President who has declared the media is incompetent and faked.

C’mon Trump!  Are you willing to put America into a war based on media hype?  Because – you will be impeached – by the same people that put you in office!

You are being led into the same cull that made Bush rake us into a horrific war in Iraq which systematically was the catalyst for the devastation of entire countries and mass exodus of refugees and displaced immigrants.  Not to mention – deaths, veterans, physical causalities, and the demise of our compassion.

Only a Dictator can keep Muslims in line.

That is a proven fact.

Trump is falling into the exact same sullied pit that took down Bush and ultimately made him a pawn of Soros.

When the ‘sides’ are so bizarrely collaborative, this is a strategy that we have never fought before. We knew that Nazi’s were Nazi’s’. They didn’t mask themselves as something else. We knew who the Jewish people were. This is different and can not be addressed from the same military strategy as has been deployed in past wars.

A war with Assad will only create an even greater game for ISIS and al-Qaeda. They will expand, they will begin to infiltrate Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Germany as is their quest. It is to conquer what was the Ottoman Empire under the Sunni, Saudi, caliphate.

The Sunni caliphate that embraces Sharia Law, mass beheadings, lashing of women, multiple wives, religious intolerance and every freedom that we take for granted. We are fighting – on the wrong side! And The Swamp is leading the battle cry!

Damn it Trump! Don’t fall prey and lead us into the Swamp – be larger, be wiser, and see the wolves for who they are and what they want.

No one really gives a dang about a “Red Line”, what we care about is Truth – Justice – Truth – and Rising Above the Media Propaganda! If we hold course, if we give Syria back to their own way, and concentrate on the US, we have a chance.   But the minute Trump becomes enamored with the false justice that has no evidence – he has lost his support, his respect, and his agenda.

Syria is the catalyst – true.  But reviewing the military and Obama administration that glorified al-Qaeda and ISIS – is the game.  Targeting Assad has gotten us into where we are today.  Targeting the Syrian government has allowed ISIS to expand exponentially.  Continuing the Obama agenda – is not going to solve the problem.

Give Assad his country.  Let him lead his people as the Muslims need to be led.  This is NOT our way, we can not make them like us, and we should finally realize this is simply a Saudi agenda for domination, and genocide.

US = NATO Sugar Daddy

It is odd how the media portrays the NATO issue that is at the forefront of the Merkel and Trump hostility. While few countries within NATO ante up according to the rules, the US has somehow become the Entitlement Program, the Welfare supporter for Europe’s military.

Germany does have their own military, of sorts. There are roughly 60,000 troops and a budget of roughly $48 billion which has remained relatively unchanged since 2001 and represents just 1.2% to 1.5% of their GDP. Merkel has been under fire for not meeting NATO criteria and simply shifting the burden on the US. Her response? She will work on it – and maybe by 2024, Germany will be able to meet the legal requirement.  Not exactly a spiffy response…

Of the twenty eight members of NATO, only five made or exceeded the 2% rule. Why?

There are some who believe it is too steep and interferes in the 3% deficit rule imposed by the EU on its member states. It then becomes something of a juggling of funds from one basket to the other – like Kiting checks.

Unfortunately, this argument opens up the Pandora Box of the EU concept as a whole. The migrant crisis as a whole. And the welfare system as a whole.

The five countries meeting the 2% rule include: US, UK, Greece, Poland and Estonia. Oddly poignant is the fact that Greece meets the military requirement but is sanctioned for not meeting the EU 3% deficit requirement.

Germany is pitiably at the bottom of the chart currently hanging out with The Netherlands (1.2%), Canada (1%), Denmark (1.2%), Belgium (.9%)and the rest of the deadbeats who feel no compunction to meet the criteria.  Perhaps, imposing sanctions and fines and penalties would wake everyone up.  A consequence – what a novel idea…

What good is a rule if no one respects it enough to meet it?

Given the US is shouldering anywhere from 3.6% to 4% of GDP, it is understandable that We The People might have a problem with that discrepancy. Located in Brussels, NATO primarily spends all it’s funding on the EU. And while the EU is our ally, propping up their entire military is not in The Constitution…  it is more of a Sugar Daddy effect.

NATO defense spending has specifically targeted Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Poland and Portugal. It becomes rather impertinent of Merkel to take a holier-than-thou attitude about Trump’s position on NATO spending when Germany hangs out with the 1.2% crowd and refuses to come to the plate. And in fact, after the 2% ratification agreement in 2014, Merkel ‘reduced’ military spending by 1.3% which would coincide with the influx of 2 million immigrants into Germany in 2015.  Kiting checks.

In addition, this immigrant crisis diverted NATO funds to ‘helping the refugees’. By default, that means that the US is the largest financial supporter of refugees…in Europe.

But Merkel’s reaction to the US not continuing it’s propping up of NATO for the EU is like getting persnickety at your bank when they bounce a check because you refuse to cover the dollars. And then turning up your nose at the NSF fee, and demanding the bank front you the money. How dare the bad bad bank do such a thing!

The fact that the US and UK virtually support NATO actually creates a hierarchal Commonwealth with the EU as a ‘subject’ of the Kingdom overseen by the US and UK. I doubt that the Europeans would think highly of such a societal pecking order, and yet their Socialist agenda still demands the US act as Sugar Daddy.

Why? Entitlement. But it’s also a lack of explanation and argument of what is and has happened.   The Europeans truly believe they are more informed and educated than the Americans. The Canadians truly believe they are more informed and educated than the Americans. And yet, they fail to see that we ‘uninformed Americans’ support them financially.  We would be more than happy to stop that funding…  thus dismantling the global Socialist, Communist Kingdom hierarchy…  Which is why Merkel – is running scared.  She is entrenched in that agenda with the Rothschild and Soros agents fervently working the helm.

But that’s the power of Socialism – it creates a false reality in which everything is – what you are told to believe.   A child told he/she is stupid, will ultimately believe ‘they are stupid’, it has nothing to do with reality and everything to do with the power of persuasion and manipulation.

And so we have a persnickety Merkel, angry and offended by Trump, because he is considering pulling the rug from beneath the global round table and in so doing will reveal the reality of all the dust-bunnies that lie beneath.

Florida Shooter Claims Mind Control?

If Santiago was a Reservist – he never went to Iraq?

Just for drill, what if the Florida Shooter, Esteban Santiago’s claims that he was being brainwashed, are accurate? What if he was a part of the military experiments that have been pervasive for over a hundred years? What if, we give him the benefit of the doubt and actually listen to what he is saying? Could it be real?

Could his claims be real? Yes. Do we know this for fact? No. Do we know anything for fact? No.

And that is why it is important – to listen.

While the media has created an interesting profile on him based on the fact that he was actually attempting to download sites pertaining to ‘jihadist ragheads’, that would hardly be the descriptive of someone who was collaborating. In addition, they site ‘multiple traffic violations’, including a dismissed violation for driving without insurance…gasp!  Smells fishy… because it is!

His claim? That he was being somehow brainwashed to join ISIS by the military…

Brainwashed? Hypnotized? These are classic techniques used by the military to determine how far the tactic can provoke an experimental subject.  They have been documented for decades.

Mind control has been a controversial subject of the US military for decades. Drug induced psychosis and Hypnosis are forms of mind control and have proven results in effectively causing a person to act outside their normal behavior values. A recent case involved a lawyer who actually hypnotized his clients into ‘administering sexual behaviors upon him’. He pleaded guilty and is in jail.

MKULTRA was/is a military/CIA project focused on mind control and brainwashing, ‘the results of which are unknown’. There are those who believe that ISIS was initiated thru ‘mind control techniques’.

While the methodology used in MKULTRA in the 1960’s thru the 1980’s was only partially revealed, techniques, uses, and theory’s have evolved significantly with potential ramifications limitless.

The deaths and psychosis that resulted from the unauthorized experiments conducted on subjects that were not even aware they were a part of this experiment is not declassified. The idea that the CIA/military simply shelved the project despite it showing ‘positive results’ is naïve at best. They simply went deeper into the shadows.

Many conspiracy theories have been raised from these experiments including Sirhan Sirhan’s assassination of RFK, as well as the entire ‘hippie movement’ which gained traction after One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey, advocated for the use after volunteering as a subject for the project. Bourne Identity author Robert Ludlum uses the theory for his entire book concept. To simply dismiss the man’s claims would be short-sighted at best.

But that’s what differentiates a journalist from a propaganda puppet.

In fact, the entire media propaganda of fake news is a form of MKULTRA.

MKULTRA was activated by former CIA Director, Allen Dulles (for whom Dulles Airport was named). Sidney Gottlied, a Jewish man born Sidney Scheider, was instrumental in performing assassination attempts on behalf of the CIA under the guise of MKULTRA. He utilized biological chemicals in his assassinations. He was said to have died of ‘mysterious causes’. Interestingly, he was of Hungarian jewish descent and of the same genre as – SOROS whose real name is Gyorgy Schwartz.

According to the Scientists involved in the MKULTRA project, most of the subjects were unwitting testees, and all the scientists were advocates of drug induced psychosis experimentations.  things have come a long way since the 1960’s!

Whether Mr. Esteban Santiago was simply another unwitting candidate for brainwashing experimentation, is open for discussion. But given the CIA history, I would say, it is most certainly NOT a closed discussion.

I doubt that the information that the CIA releases has anything to do with TRUTH, and everything to do with covering up their ‘experimental successes – and failures –

Syria Truce – a Ceasefire Brokered By War

Last week during the Syria truce and ceasefire brokered by Syria, the US and Russia, the US used two jets loaded with bombs to take out 62 Syrian military members and injure an additional 100. The UK has now announced that they were complicit in the ‘cleansing’. The claim is that it was a mistake, however no other targets were identified or hit. No ISIS members were hit.

While this was not the only airstrike conducted during the ceasefire, Kerry has the balls to come out and defend the strikes claiming that “Assad has done it too…” sounding much like an 8 year complaining to mommy about his big brother. So where is integrity and honor? Have we become the playground bully who spits, “na-na-na-na…?” Shouldn’t we be held to a higher definition of respecting the rules? Why were F-16’s dispatched during a ceasefire anyway? And why wasn’t there communication between the coalition and the Syrian government?

It stinks because it stinks.

To add mud to the slingshot, Kerry now wants to know why Assad has declared that the ceasefire is no longer viable or valid. Kerry is demanding that Russia explain. Well, I don’t know but maybe it has something to do with the fact that the US, Australia, the Dutch and UK all admittedly collaborated to take out government military forces in absolute violation of the ceasefire. I’d venture that was a good reason to say – enough.  I’d call it a violation of international law.

Imagine if it had been reversed and Assad took out 62 Special Forces on the ground – and called it a ‘oops’ – sorry.

Given that US Special Forces and UK Special Forces are on the ground in northern Syria, it is a safe assessment that knowledge of government forces being on the hillside overlooking the city of Deir ez-Zur was a given. In fact, six days ago a news agency in the Middle East, Almasdarnews, reported that the Syrian military had gained control of the strategic mountaintop from ISIS.  So how did our Intelligencia – miss this fact?

An Israeli scholar at the Begin-Sadat Center has stated that ISIS is a useful tool and they should be allowed to conclude their ethnic cleansing of Shiite and Christians because those that are being cleansed are not nearly as bad as ISIS… and that they serve a purpose that would not be otherwise allowed under international law. He believes fighting ISIS is a folly on the part of the coalition and that ISIS serves a valuable benefit that would not occur without their being allowed their respective massacres.

While a UN aid convoy sat for seven days, unable to proceed due to continued fighting among the rebels and ISIS on the roadway, someone gave them the greenlight to go and they were attacked. Twelve people were killed and 18 of the 31 trucks were destroyed.

The media is going ballistic printing conclusions and blame before the print is dry. The UN has not made any statement and is still investigating what went wrong given that the road had been under seige of constant fighting for the past week – before the ‘truce/ceasefire’ ended.

But given new information from inside the Middle East, the UN aid convoy was actually a Syrian Aid Convoy – the Syrian Red Crescent Society. And despite the media claiming Assad has not allowed ANY humanitarian aid to enter, the Syrian Red Crescent says differently according to their Twitter Feed: September 10 – 3 convoys, September 18 – 10 trucks, September 19 – 2nd stage of convoys reach Homs.

The problem is the obtuse fact that there are now eleven countries conducting airstrikes in Syria: US, UK, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Jordan, UAE, France, – and Russia. Coordinating the strikes is either purposeful or out of control. In addition, most of the planes used to conduct the strikes were either manufactured in the US… or Russia, so designating the source becomes a particularly difficult quest.

For now – it is easy to see that Syria would not feel that the truce was handled with any delicacy, honor or respect, and that they would be vehemently opposed to allowing further annihilations of their people by airstrikes from – anyone. Because a ceasefire that allows airstrikes is not a ceasefire at all. It is a setup.
And lives, real people, fathers and sons – are the victims.

Memorial Day – To My Daddy

Dear Daddy,

I wanted to thank you for sacrificing your life, your health, your honor, your emotions, your heart, your limbs for this country that we call the Land of The Free. I wanted you to know that everything you did ‘mattered’, it made a difference, it gave hundreds of thousands, and perhaps millions the chance to live when you had to die.

I wanted to say that the burning hole that filled your heart was not in vain and that despite the vagrancies of a few self consumed children, there are many, more than many, who truly appreciate that you gave your life so that we could live. Do not be grieved. Do not be fearful that we are a fallen country, that your sacrifice was in vain, for even if you saved one life, it was more than anyone else can claim. What we seem to have forgotten is that to save even One, is worth the consequence of that action.

I wanted to say that even though you had such a short life, and you had such high spirits to find salve for the brokenness inside you, you made a huge impact on one life – mine. When I am down, I think of you. When I am in trials, I think of you. When I am melancholy, I look at your picture and I find peace. You were an amazing dad. An amazing man.

You were stricken with multiple cancers. You suffered miserably. Your heart was broken by the terror you witnessed, and yet, you were able to try and put it behind you, more pain, more suffering, more violence than most experience in twenty lifetimes. Thank you daddy. I wish I could soften that pain.

I think of you every day even though you passed nearly forty years ago. I think of how you were my personal savior, my hero, my strength, my rock amidst the storms. I miss you terribly and wish you could help guide me through my own trials, but take comfort in knowing that you are still with me in spirit, if not in the physical form.

Thank you daddy.

I know that sometimes you had fun while serving this country, sometimes you found humor, and sometimes you found death and hardship, but you persevered – until God took you while you were yet so young, I know that you watch over me every single day of my life. I want you to know that your sacrifice means everything to us even if some of us don’t see it – but have patience, one day, I believe they will come around and see how much you gave for them, for me, for all of us. One day, they will come to understand that each man is unique to his calling, and that while there are the few who fail, there are many more who are so incredibly self sacrificing, so giving, so focused on making this world a place of good, that the Hillarys and the Obamas and the Bills and the Nixons and the Jacksons, and the Johnsons, well they are just a fly to be swat in the scheme of things. They are nothing. The proverbial specks of sand…

I wish you could be here today with your grandchildren and great grandchildren and even great-great grandchildren! What a legacy you have created, a vine of love, and of honor and of respect, that I can not ever be anything but humbled by your heart.

Thank you daddy.

I wish I had been older and wiser and could have asked you more questions, and listened harder, learned deeper and held your hand more often. I wish I could have you near me now in my trials and ask for your advice. I will forever hold you as my hero, and will try to honor your name through my children, their children, and for generations beyond. I will pass on everything I know in stories and anecdotes and hopefully, your memory will be passed for eternity to come.

Dear Daddy, I really wish you were here with me today, because I’ve made so many stupid mistakes and I think maybe I would have been better if you had been there to guide me and set my path straighter. Because right now it really, really sucks.

I wish the military had been brighter and more compassionate toward their people. I wish that you had not been a guinea pig in the Nevada nuclear tests. I wish that I could have learned more than the whisper of time I was given. I wish you could have had the wishes you wished for in your life and that maybe I could have shared some of those with you.

But most of all – I wish you were here with me today to take away the pain and make it right like you always did – because you were my – hero. And I miss you so terribly.
