COVID National Security & Emergency Status – Illegal?

Legally, for the HHS to declare a State of Emergency they must determine there is a National Security Threat.   In order for that threat to be confirmed, there are multiple rules in place that assist in making the declaration.   Those rules would dictate that in order for a disease to be considered a viable cause for implementing the Emergency Order, it should be identified as a terrorist attack, a biological warfare attack that justifies it as a Security issue both at home and for American citizens abroad.

In addition, in order for the FDA to authorize unlicensed, unapproved treatment for a disease, there can NOT be any other available treatments.

Public Health Emergency Law:   A pre-requisite to determining the use of biological agents to treat a disease via the EUA – There can be no adequate, approved, and available alternative to the product for diagnosing, preventing, or treating the disease or condition.

In addition:   Within the emergency authorization, fact sheets providing the potential risks shall be provided to each patient who then has the ‘option’ to accept or refuse the product with no consequences! In addition, the FDA is mandated to provide patients with alternatives whether approved for use or not. State and local officials must comply with the conditions attached to the tests and treatments, ie refusing to comply shall have zero consequences.

NO tests or treatments shall be mandated given the entire purpose is to uphold economic and individual freedom and ALL measures will be deemed ‘GUIDANCE’ and shall not infringe on freedom.

Lockdowns and closures were – illegal.   We were not fighting an attack.   We were fighting a disease.  Diseases are NOT terrorists.

Humor!   In the wake of all the rules promoted by various states in converting our freedoms to illegal wakes, 2 democrat senators have determined 2 measures should be made law: 1. Third party delivery apps would have a cap on fees, and 2.   Restaurants would be allowed to sell ‘cocktails to go’ for two years.   Priorities!

These statements, rules and guidance I am quoting are stipulated within The Homeland Security Act, Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures, Public Health Service Act and the FDA.

The authority for treatment is specified as coming from government ‘stockpiles’ or from previously issued but unapproved treatments that meet risk evaluation vs benefit analysis, or from treatments approved for other diseases but not yet approved for this disease.   These treatments must continue to undergo rigorous trials and updates made available on a continual basis to the FDA in the form of reports.   These reports which must be made public via the FDA must include adverse reactions – as in keeping the public informed.  To the best of my knowledge none of these requirements have been met.

March 27, 2020, the Following Federal Declaration was issued by Azar, Secretary for HHS:

“…there is a public health emergency that has a significant potential to affect national security or the health and security of United States citizens living abroad and that involves a novel (new) coronavirus (nCoV) first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China in 2019 (2019-nCoV). The virus is now named SARS-CoV-2, which causes the illness COVID-19. On the basis of this determination, he (Azar, Sec of Health) also declared that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of drugs and biological products during the COVID-19 pandemic, pursuant to section 564 of the FD&C Act, subject to the terms of any authorization issued under that section.”

 According to the FD&C Act 564, the FDA must determine that: “If the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) determines that there is a public health emergency under the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) §31910 that affects, or has significant potential to affect, national security and involves specified CBRN agents (chemical warfare) and diseases… an EUA can be allowed.

In other words, all these authorizations were dependent on the one thing the White House and Fauci continually denied!   A Terrorist Attack using chemical agents. As such, they acted outside their authority.

The Heritage Organization issued an essay in 2015 targeting misconceptions on the use of and definition of National Security. Identifying what it is NOT, Heritage issued this statement:   “While a pandemic disease could endanger the safety and security of thousands of Americans, unless it is committed as an act of biological terrorism, it should be considered a matter of health and domestic safety, not national security.”

Once again, the distinction is whether an event occurs as a direct result of an attack, or act of biological terrorism, or whether it is a ‘social security’.   Further undermining the entire federal, state and local misuse of power.   National Security is not climate change, it is not gender identity, it is not human rights.   And it is not disease. National Security involves a threat of war wherein the military is involved.  That has always been it’s purpose and interpretation.

As such, 1000 lawyers and 10,000 doctors have convened to file a lawsuit claiming the CoVid laws and lockdowns violated the Nürnberg Code against the CDC, WHO and Davos Group for crimes against humanity. Stating:

  1. The PCR test was never designed to detect pathogens and is 100% inaccurate at 35 cycles. All PCR tests monitored by the CDC are set at 37 to 45 cycles.
  2. Under Article 32 of the 1949 Geneva Convention, “mutilation and medical or scientific experiments not required for the medical treatment of a protected person” are prohibited.

However, the Nuremberg Code is based on the ‘Consequences of War’ – so the entire lawsuit may be tossed unless the National Security issue is triggered.  A very interesting conundrum!   Because governments declared a disease was a National Security Threat, they have in fact triggered the very concept of War – which would then trigger the Nuremberg Code.   If it is deemed to NOT fall into the category of war, then every aspect of lockdowns was ILLEGAL>

Iran Protests Will Decimate EU Economy

The newest fray of blame Trump would have us believe that he single-handedly caused hundreds of thousands of Iranian people to rise up and revolt days after Iran admitted it had accidentally shot down the Ukraine plane transporting 83 Iranians and 64 Canadians many of whom were Iranian.

The left find themselves in interesting company – Russia. According to Russian news sources, the protests are a US coup – again.

And in response to the Suleimani take-down, the Ayatollah has determined that the Pentagon and US Department of Defense are global terrorist organizations. So not only have the left aligned themselves with the dictator, Ayatollah Khomeini, and the terrorist Suleimani, they have now aligned themselves with Putin. And by default, Putin has thus aligned himself with our left, the same left that has accused Russia of meddling in the election on behalf of Trump – when in actuality they attempted to support Hillary.

The previous rally in the streets of Iran was supposed to be the mourning of Suleimani, but as with all communist regimes, the people were ‘ordered’ to be present for the funeral – by punishment of death. The left in the US cried and grieved for the terrorist having absolutely no idea who he was and how many hundreds he had tortured and murdered.

Putin stepping into the fray is a grave mistake. Claiming a US coup is a grave mistake.  

But Putin, Merkel and Macron are still desperate to uphold Iran’s Nuclear Deal that never was. Not because anyone really thought Iran would stop production of advanced nuclear weapons, but because contracts were on the table for billions in creating an economically Dubai-like status for Iran’s future.

Follow the Money.

In October 2015, Bloomberg ran an article: “Iran will pay foreign oil companies larger fees than it did under previous buy-back contracts to attract $100 billion of investments needed to rebuild its energy industry.   The Persian Gulf state, once OPEC’s second-largest crude producer, will also offer 20-year contracts on oil and natural gas projects, Roknoddin Javadi, managing director of state-run National Iranian Oil Co., said in an interview in Tehran.”

In order for this to occur, the Iran Nuke Deal was essential.

In 2017, Iran’s Javadi stated, “Iran’s Revolutionary Guards are ready to help rebuild Syria and bring about a lasting “ceasefire” there, adding that disarming Lebanon’s Hezbollah is out of the question.”   Boom – Hezbollah would proliferate – as in Suleimani – as in his amnesty.

In other words, Iran was counting on the EU, the US under Hillary, and Russia to plug billions into it’s state so that Iran could then plug millions into Syria so that Hezbollah could expand in the Middle East – under the guidance of Suleimani. The terrorist.

Trump destroyed that tit-for-tat.   Russia, the EU, and of course, Iran needed those circular funds. And now with the potential of a regime change in Iran ousting a Dictator, it all caves.

Germany of course is at the forefront of the EU as it struggles to level out its own collapsing economy which is likely to spin even more dangerously lower as BREXIT takes hold.   Merkel met with Putin in an attempt to embolden their relationship as they both concur that Iran is their only hope.   That was before the citizen revolt demanding the Ayatollah and the dictatorship regime – leave.

Given the deals were with the Ayatollah, if he goes so does Putin and Merkel.

Meanwhile the weakling link that is powerless to deal with the protests that have wreaked havoc on France’s economy, Macron, is putting forth his best Porky Pig imitation crying, “me-too…”!

France’s economy is reeling and has been since the protests took hold more than a year ago.   Bankruptcies, debt defaults, will act like dominoes decimating what is left of their economy.   Tax revenue will splinter.   And BREXIT will take its toll.   Without the US propping up NATO and the UN, the EU’s self defense will be essentially nonexistent.

Pick a side – any side. Just make sure it is the right side.

Meanwhile China’s President Xi Jinping has chosen to focus on his own internal corruption and remained essentially out of the fray.  Not one to engage in the cock fight, what is done is done, time to move back to economic trade and prosperity.

And oddly, the left could take a lesson from this communist leader.

IRAN: The Cabal’s New World Order Regime

Pick a lane – any lane.   In our current world of shifting alliances, this idiom is quite relevant.   Balancing our power, we have historically played both sides good and bad, and we now face a choice – Iraq is majority Shi’te and that government has declared it will henceforth align with Iran and by default Hezbollah and Hamas.   Hezbollah is a militant jihadist group factioned by Iran and based in Lebanon.   They are considered terrorist by the Arab League, US, Canada, EU and Israel and have been involved in massive terrorist activities since the 1980’s.  Hamas is also a terrorist organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. With the latest elimination of Iran’s Qud General Suleimani, Iraq’s hand was forced and they have aligned themselves with Iran.  

After gaining independence from British rule, Iraq became a ‘nationalist-socialist’ regime.   They have a relatively low literacy rate, their education system is crumbling, their ‘free nationalized’ healthcare is abysmal and their life expectancy is roughly 68 years.   Internal conflicts for control of oil have been the norm since the rise of oil’s dominance.  Welcome to Iraq.

Suleimani was targeted with sanctions by the UN in 2007 under Bush. He was listed as an international terrorist by Obama in 2011. American intervention began in Iraq in 2014 under orders from Obama.   While the reason cited was to have a strategic presence in order to fight ISIS, it was also a tactical gridlock against Iran.   As of 2014, the liberal media was calling for a pull back of troops in Iraq and as of today it is estimated we have roughly 5200 remaining.

As of 2016, the US aid to Iraq was $5.3 billion.    Obviously, Iraq is stating they are willing to relinquish this aid in the future.  There loss, not ours.

Three months ago President Trump began to increase military presence in Saudi Arabia citing defensive posturing.   To think he decided to eliminate a ruthless terrorist, Suleimani, on a whim, is wholly ignorant.   The entire shift that has been taking place across the Middle East has been happening since the Saudi administration was completely overhauled by Crown Prince Salman in 2017. Since that time, the friendship with the US under President Trump has become greater, and likely more sincere.  It also bears witness that the Saudi’s and Israeli’s were likely working in conjunction with President Trump.

With the advent of Trump as US president, alliances across the globe have become much more transparent, and thus have shifted.   Many countries throughout Europe have been revealed to be part and parcel of the globalization New World Order effort to destabilize and usher in a Socialist/Marxist global government in the form of the United Nations.   Hence the idiom, ‘our enemies enemies are our friends’.   Within that revelation is the fact that the EU is a colony of the Cabal, the US had become a puppet under a liberal regime, South America was being ‘couped’, Africa was bribed, Eurasia was relegated to chaos and squalor, and China was emboldened as Soros told Jinping China would be the leader of the NWO.

To think that Suleiman was not a very planned target devolves all true military intelligence into whimsical fantasy.   The fact that no media outlet was ‘leaked’ the plan is an amazing coup in itself!   It means the traitors within are out of the loop. They may not be in jail, yet, but they have been purged of information.

The liberal media are quite short-sided in their portrayal of Suleimani as a poetry reading sweetheart given the depiction undermines the very Cabal that rules them, Obama, the UN. EU and Bush when sanctions were applied to this ‘terrorist’ who was responsible for the deaths of 608 US troops.  History is more and more difficult to ‘rewrite’.

In essence, Suleiman was no different than Osama bin Laden. He was aligned with and dominated two terrorist organizations in the Middle East whose aspirations are jihad against everything ‘western’.

To take down al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden was targeted.   To take down ISIS, al-Baghdadi was targeted.   Of course new leaders will be appointed. But the hardliners, the core, the root will have been severely debilitated.   There are those who believe that these terrorist organizations were actually created by the Cabal to wreak havoc and create a common enemy. During Obama’s reign, ISIS ran wild. Occasionally Obama would drop a few bombs, but let us not forget that under Obama the US was arming and supporting al Nusra and various other factions throughout Syria and the Middle East before it was pointed out – oops – they are the terrorists.

That would reveal that these factions are part of the agenda, created for a purpose, with a protocol in place.

The very liberal New Yorker is now trying to shift the entire reflection of the NWO back at President Trump. Why?   Because he has single handedly destroyed huge elements of their carefully crafted agenda and their Plan B, C, D, and E have all failed. Even the last ditch effort at impeachment has blown apart.

Iran was inducted into the Cabal’s NWO, given billions by Obama, while promises of elitism and power were deployed.   It was going to be the new Dubai with billions of investment dollars plowed into their economy, high rises, infrastructure, trains, and weapons… That is – until President Trump closed the dyke. The EU was the first to become frantic because the entire Iran investment was going to come predominantly by them bolstering their economy in the process.   They – panicked, and the EU economy has faltered significantly.

Will Iran retaliate? Of course.   Did ISIS threaten retaliation? Yes. Did Al Qaeda? Yes.   But in order to destroy the Cabal and their Protocol of War, we need to be on high alert, we need to cut the umbilical cords.

Iran – Assets confiscated by US

The US has confiscated $2billion of Iranian assets to compensate the victims or their families of terrorist attacks purportedly linked to Iran in the 1983 Marine Barracks attack in Beirut that killed 254 US servicemen, and the 1996 bombing of the Khobor Towers in Saudi Arabia.

Beirut: What happened? The barracks was unprotected given that the US servicemen were not their as military contingents, but as peacekeeping agents leaving a wide open gate and no sentries. A truck laden with 21,000lbs of TNT flattened the entire barracks and everyone inside. A formal report issued by the US indicated serious errors in judgment by officers on the ground with a military chain of command taking the heat. Reference was made to ‘jihadists’ and ‘militants’.

The problem? The group that claimed responsibility, Islamic Jihad, did not necessarily exist. While there is speculation that they were a front for Hezbollah, there is no definitive proof one way or the other. Robert Baer, former CIA, has some lucid analysis on the situation, but describes it as a mutual war of terrorism, almost a tit-for-tat, at the time between Iran and the US with Lebanon in the middle.

Khobor Towers: What happened? Nineteen people died when a truck loaded with a bomb blew up the dormitory in the Towers which housed US Air Force pilots and staff. It was ten years later that a US court and the Saudi’s decided that Iran was responsible and another nine years before the Saudi’s arrested the man they found was the mastermind, a Saudi Shiite, Mughassil, was arrested in 2015. Mughassil was a military commander of the Saudi branch of Hezbollah.

The problem? Timing. Timing is everything and the Sauds desperately hate the Iranians.

But a larger problem emerges, reparation for victims of terrorism.

The same logic that is currently being used to stifle and quash the release of documents that purportedly show the Saudi involvement in the 911 attacks – is being used against Iran. And the logic that opening that can of worms could create exponential financial repercussions on the US in various failed and successful coups that resulted in civilian “casualties” and could be classified as terrorism by courts in other countries.

It also sets up the potential for the International Criminal Court to be prescribed future cases involving terrorism and what constitutes terrorism. Current cases being judged by the ICC include war crimes in Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Kenya, Central African Republic, Libya, Mali, Cote D’Ivoire, and Georgia. All cases are investigating representative governments for crimes against humanity including attacks against ‘peacekeepers’.

So how is it that the US may make an international declaration against Iran without going through the ICC?

While the ICC, based in Hague The Netherlands, pats itself on the back for its astounding work, it’s true function would seem similar to NATO or the UN. Their budget is huge, their actual productivity sparse at best. As of 2014, 12 years of operation and $1billion later, the ICC had issued exactly two convictions, both against Congolese warlords. Not exactly a legal system that makes people tremble with fear.

And then there was the award the ICC admitted to Exxon Mobile and its subsidiaries against Venezuela after Exxon-Mobil restructured its Venezuelan business under the Netherlands–Venezuela bilateral investment treaty – OUCH!   No conflict of interest there.

So, did Iran commit these crimes?   I don’t know, and maybe that isn’t really the bigger issue. The bigger issue is implicating governments of countries that think they are immune. Ukraine has filed a claim under for the Maiden protests which caused civilian massacres. There is a preliminary case against the UK for crimes against Iraqi civilians.  What about the US involvement in Ukraine?  The US involvement in Cuba?  The US involvement in Brazil?  The list is long – and the reparations could bankrupt us…

How these will play out is up for grabs, but given the ICC history, we’ll have to wait ten to twenty years before we find out.

Yawn………………………

How much money is at stake for Iran? The figures are not available but estimates range from $10 to $100 billion that the US is attempting to appropriate. I wonder if that includes interest…

Brussels and Violent Crime – a statistic

With all the protests and chaos and stampeding in the media , with all the support for criminals and terrorists – I got hit. And nothing changes an unbiased opinion as quickly as being the victim of a violent or heinous crime. In my case, it was my home, my house, I was defiled by burglars. Not only did they take items that were in my family for hundreds of years, they left a calling card – they peed on my carpet. A nice brazen, large, spreading stain.

Maybe they laughed and thought it was a nice calling card, a send off, a &^k you because I had more and they wanted – what I had. They were entitled to what I had. The new Socialist way of thinking … If you don’t have it, just steal it!

Little can express my feelings except that I find myself more angry than sad, more outraged than weepy, although the weeps do take hold. I’ve been robbed before, but then it was a stupid idiot robbing another poor person, and I just felt – what an idiot. This time, I had something to lose, and they emptied it all.

Unfortunately, it’s not like television or novels where the police and sheriff are all over the case and spend wakeful hours upon hours researching who could be the culprit, the MO, the footprints, the case! In reality, they spend diligent hours taking notes and yet in their heart they know it’s gone – it’s all gone. And there is no way it will ever be recovered. In reality, you lose and life moves on for everyone else – including the burglars. Because the police have literally thousands upon thousands of cases to cover. And you are just a pin-prick in the miles of paperwork.

In my case, what they left is almost as interesting as what they took, not that I protest what they left behind! But the entire agenda converted a few around me, they suddenly took it all personally and they switched – on a dime – and saw that anger is the impetuous that is driving the bandwagon around Trump. But this time – this time – it isn’t black anger or illegal immigrant anger, or Islam anger, or poor me anger – it is I AM DONE anger. As in, enough. As in we have been the scapegoat punching bag for everything for way too long and I am done.  Anger.

As in – I didn’t do anything wrong and am paying for some bizarre prejudicial anger that has nothing to do with my everyday life. As in the hypocrisy is just over the top ridiculous, anger, and I’m not your punching bag! Anger.

The crime statistics are REAL anger. Terrorism is real. Hate and pain are real! And it wasn’t coming from ME! Anger.

My abode has been violated. They crashed through a steal entry, and a heavy wood and metal door – bolted and secured spent exactly 17 minutes ransacking the entire house and left through the front door – arrogant –  angry. After – someone thought it might be fun to pee in the middle of the living room – angry.

SO, once again, we see that our leaders are either living in a hazy fog of a netherworld, or they are doing it on purpose to bring down a global destabilization – angry. Depends if you believe they are stupid are simply conniving. Because there is really nothing in-between.

Responses to Brussels terrorist attacks:

Cameron – he is ‘concerned’ … really?  Now you are ‘concerned’?

Merkel – she says ‘free societies are stronger than ISIS…’ – really?  Because that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Hollande – he’s calling for us to all be ‘calm’ and ‘lucid’.

Obama – he just thinks that we all need to ‘unite’ to be friends and brethren – while in Cuba.

Gee guys, I just don’t think your attitude makes me feel all warm and cozy. Doesn’t make me feel safe. Makes me feel like I wish you could feel the violation like they do, like I did, like so many others have!  Makes me think – you haven’t a clue!

The boundaries have all been crossed. The values have spiraled into a “see it” version of soft porn on every media site. And nude selfies for the world to see are a yawn that put Playboy out of business.

So – all you mainstream – if you want to know why people don’t want a stereotypical politician – THIS is why. Get over it.

Footnote: they did not steal our guns…

Sunni Shi’a Riff – Next World War?

An unprecedented influx of Muslim refugees precedes a widening rift between Shi’a and Sunni states in the Middle East.

It’s hard not to think the timing was orchestrated.  What did the Sauds think the reaction would be after they brutally executed-beheaded a Shi’a holy man? Did they really think there would be no repercussion? I don’t think anyone is that stupid… and the only viable alternative to stupid is – ‘orchestrated’.

What would be the purpose if it was orchestrated?

Certainly it puts all of Europe on a very high alert as their Muslim population of both sects has risen exponentially. While the last actual population census was done in 2010 and estimated the total European contingent to be in excess of 44 million, the last five years we have seen unprecedented exodus from the Middle East and Africa into Europe. But more surprising is that upwards of 62% of all Muslims reside in Asia, the Middle East only accounts for about 20%, and Africa about 15%.

Pakistan and Indonesia account for the largest Shi’a populations. How they will respond to this division will determine whether this riff explodes.

That being said, if the Middle East were to implode into an all out sectarian war, what side would we take? What would happen to the ‘other’ side’s civilian population in foreign countries? Would the violence extend worldwide as Shunnis took to fighting Shi’a – everywhere?

Worldwide, the Sunni population is approximately 80% and the Shi’a about 20%. However, in the US, the Sunni population is 56%, a large disproportionate percentage despite our brackish affiliation with Saudi Arabia and Sunnis.

Iran in a Nutshell: The last time Iran was a world power was in the early 18th century.  Prior to that their empire reigned in the 7th century when they were ruled by the Sasanians whose language was Aramaic and religion was a mixture of Babylonian, Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist. This Empire was defeated by Islam in a war that began in 633 and eventually ended in about 651 AD.  The surviving Sasonian’s converted to Islam or fled to other countries, but were always considered inferior, of a lesser quality. Conquered by the Mongols and later the Tamirs, it was not until the fifteen hundreds that Safavids rose to form the Safavid Empire of Iran before being defeated in 1722.

They were later conquered by Russia, the Ottoman Empire and finally the British in the early 1900’s who sought their oil. In 1941 the Soviets, British and Commonwealth nations invaded Iran for the purpose of confiscating their oil. In 1946, the Soviets were expelled by the British and Commonwealthers who then revoked their portion of the oil and continued their reign over the country.

In 1953, the US and UK organized a coup to depose the Prime Minister of Iran, Musaddeq, executed the Foreign Minister, and propped up the Shah. The 1979 Revolution returned Iran to its Shi’a roots, nationalized the oil from the British and US, and returned the country to it’s fundamental religious societal economy.

And while the media continues to pummel us with the ‘threat of Iran terrorism’, let’s not forget that al-Qaeda, ISIS, al-Nusra, Hamas, The Muslim Brotherhood, and al-Shabaab are all Sunni… The terrorist organization that is Shi’a is the militant group known as Hezbollah.

Formed by Iran clerics in 1982, Hezbollah was created to battle the Israeli occupation of south Lebanon. Since then, their military aggression has grown, and their warring targets include Israel and the Saudi Arabia.  Their main focus is feeling oppressed as a minority.  The European Union, New Zealand and the UK do not classify Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Their ideology desires the end of Israel as they see Zionism as a conspiracy for a One World Order and supreme domination.

So what would a complete implosion of war between Shi’as and Sunnis look like? Given the mass amounts of weapons sold over the course of the last decade by the US, Europe, and Russia – the countries most prolific include; Turkey, UAE, India, Afghanistan, China and of course – Saudi Arabia which took the world’s lead in 2014. Iran is not even making the list.

Paying attention to the details instead of the media propaganda is now a necessity. Who are friends? Who are foes? And who can we Trust?

The Children of War: One M&M in Ten Thousand

Can you even imagine your son hating you so much that he tries to kill you? How much hate would have to live inside a person to want this?

Fathers – you can be so much with so little…

Imagine hating a person that you’ve never met, and have no knowledge of, but hating them so much you want them dead and are willing to be – the perpetrator?

Imagine a society that is so hell-bent in lying and deception, that they will tell you a staged story of why you have crossed that moral and ethical line knowing it is false and pretending it to be true?  I can’t imagine such a mind that rationalizes such lies,  I can’t imagine the mind of such a person. I can’t imagine the emptiness of care. I can’t imagine such absolute hatred that it consumes.  I can’t imagine they sleep…

And yet, I have siblings and a father and grandfather and great, and great great and so on – that have all experienced this absolute absorbing hate. In war. Can a person that is so carnaged in that cavernous gulf of emotion and life ever really ‘get better’? At what point does the mind change to the point that it can’t be ‘fixed’?

Sometimes I think that there is just a switch some place in the brains of these terrorists and others consumed with hate, a switch that if God wanted, he could flip and these people would no longer be evil.  They would lay down their swords, their AK-47’s, their deboning fillet knives and say – enough.  What’s the point?

Perhaps the idea comes from the most simple of examples – down syndrome. A part of the brain is clustered and emphasized, while another part is clouded and gray. The clouded and gray matter house the hatred and lying and deception genetic, while the cluster emphasizes a simplistically full heart that overflows, brimming with nothing but purity and goodness! Amazing! So, of course, there is a switch somewhere that causes a person to lop heads, blow up crowds of innocent children, and maim thousands upon thousands – for a self, a narcissistic self that cares for nothing but – self.  While there is another switch that allows a person to be engulfed in an aura of glorified sweetness.

So what makes two people go opposite directions? One evil – one good?

Is it really possible that it is a brain anomaly that makes one more evil? Could there be a dyke, a switch, a trigger that could be set into the ‘on’ position, allowing them to be good people? And if something happens to flip the switch off, the brain spirals into an evil place.

The Fix: It wouldn’t be a lobotomy. It would be a restoration of a switch that was triggered by events beyond your control during childhood. The switch would ‘reset’ like the red button in your kitchen that resets rooms of power overload and failure.

Imagine the children coming out of Syria? Imagine what is in their dreams? Where do their thoughts reside? What is their suppressed emotional level? How do they view – life? You can’t ignore them. You can’t pretend they are just fine. They are not. And a new generation will grow that is rooted in terror and a disregard for life. Has their ‘switch’ been turned off? Did the overload of destruction and devastation cause the switch to simply flip to the off position? Probably.

This is the generation we support in Syria – in the Middle East – in Africa… Are we really so immune? So disconnected? So absorbed in self? We can’t see?

Because, while there may be ten poisoned M&M’s in the bowl amongst ten thousand, there may be a child M&M, a girl, 4, standing in the midst of bombs, her hair splayed with dirt, her face splattered with tears and terror, and all around the world is fire, noise, and chaos. And I think there are a fair number of firemen, policemen, and military that would risk the ten amongst the ten thousand – for the one.
