The Ati-thesis , Marxism


"By that definition, a state capitalist country is one where the government controls the economy and essentially acts like a single huge corporation, extracting the surplus value from the workforce in order to invest it in further production.[3] Friedrich Engels, in Socialism: Utopian and Scientific, argues that state capitalism would be the final stage of capitalism consisting of ownership and management of large-scale production and communication by the bourgeois state.[4]"

Ted Cruz Takes A Progressive Stand on the Birth Right Issue.

Breitbart's Article (with link to video) reports accurately on the dialogue
Headline states :Cruz Accuses Megyn Kelly Of Asking "Mainstream Media Liberal " Question
http://goo.gl/WQpp6Y

In this interview, Kelly's asks two questions that Cruz refuses to answer dodging the questions like a season politician and a true progressive- with the meaning of progressive being one who thinks that the constitution can be overridden to serve policies and political agendas of the day- versus a conservative who hold that the constitution is the ultimate Rule of Law and that the philosophical intent of the constitution must be the measure of any change to our constitution.

Cruz keeps the focus issue on policy in response to Megyn's question as to whether he thinks changes to birth right citizenship requires a Constitutional amendment  OR if it can just be changed by Congress. Cruz uses a lot of rhetoric to say that it is a policy (meaning not a constitutional) issue and needs to be achieved any way that it can be achieved. When listening closely Cruz is saying clearly that it is can be changed by Congress and does not need to go through a process that requires the consent of the governed- but in terms of the perception manufacturing industry- Cruz is trying to appear as not taking any position at all. Megyn Kelly is asking him a very direct and clear answer for which he gives us reams of rhetorical talking points that he consistently repeats every time Kelly rephrases the question.

When Megyn asks specifically if he would deport the children born in this country to illegal parents or deport only the parents- once again Cruz cannot give a direct answer and evades it like a politician- then he pulls out the big one - he attacks the question- using the standard attack of the anti-establishmentarians- He calls the question a "‘Mainstream Media Liberal Question" . This functions like a command to the anti-establishmentarian social media organizations which then reach across the internet spinning  Megyn Kelly as a Liberal. The anti-establishmentarian social media unilaterally attacks Megyn Kelly -Paying no notice to Cruz's politically crafted evasion of  the constitutional issue.  Once again. the perception manufacturing industry attacks Megyn Kelly for asking  perfectly legitimate and spot on questions which their candidates cannot answer- and once again the candidate delivers his instructions to the foot soldiers of the anti-establishmentarain movement on how they should target Megyn Kelly. mirroring the Donalds message, publicly delivered during the debates when he told Megyn that she was not being nice to him and suggested that he could could be not nice to her as well!

There is nothing "liberal" about Kelly's question and if it is a question the non-mainstream media thinks Cruz should not have to answer, then shame on the non-mainstream media!

Cruz's undeniable evasion of the question asked by Megyn Kelly- which goes straight to the heart of the constitutional issue- which is the ultimate Rule of Law- reveals that Cruz is a progressive when it comes to the US Constitution. "it's a policy issue" is the answer that makes that clear !

Afternote: 

I came across this article from the Heritage which discusses a series of Supreme Court decisions that clarify that no involuntary expatriations are legal. Taking away the citizenship of any one born in the USA qualifies as an involuntary expatriation- in my layman's assessment:

Here is the specific quote:

Finally, in Vance v. Terrazas (1980), the Court clarified its decision in Afroyim by holding that it was not enough to show that an individual voluntarily committed an act that Congress determined was inconsistent with American citizenship. It was necessary also to show independently that the individual "intended to relinquish his citizenship." Given the broad language of the more recent cases, it seems that no involuntary expatriations are lawful. The one exception, which applies only to naturalized Americans, is the denaturalization (and deportation) of those who became citizens through fraud or illegality. It has been applied most notably in recent decades to former Nazis who engaged in war crimes during World War II and later lied about their wartime activities either when they entered the United States as "displaced persons" or when they applied for citizenship.

Reasons for involuntary expatriation that were overturned by the Supreme Court:
Although it upheld expatriation for voting in a foreign election, Perez v. Brownell (1958), it overturned expatriations for desertion from the military during wartime, Trop v. Dulles (1958), and for service by a dual national in the Japanese army during World War II, Nishikawa v. Dulles (1958). In 1963, in Kennedy v. Mendoza-Martinez, the Court ruled that a citizen could not be expatriated for fleeing the country during wartime to evade military service.

Registered By Proxy-The Trump Social Media News Network

I wrote in a previous post about outrageous "news" stories targeting "the establishment"  manufactured by Breitbart.com

Breitbart.Com is registered via Domains By Proxy As are the many of the lesser known social media "news" organizations supporting the Trump.

Manufacturing disinformation to create a desired perception is an old trick used by Donald Trump through out his career as is documented in this 1991 documentary film, which was not released at that time amid threats to sue brought forth by Donald Trump

Following are a handful of the social media news information distributing support for the Donald and his runner ups, as well as attacks against his enemies. The stories are all fabrications but it is the headline which is important as most will not read the stories as they redistribute the headline.

Anti-Establishmentarains Just Following Orders When They Add Megan Kelly to Targeted Politcal Enemies List !

http://goo.gl/egMJRF



Before I could post my own meme on facebook today, the anti-establishmentarians had already beat me to it- Just following orders, which we all heard Trump issue to his soilders when he told Megan Kelly she was not being very nice to him by asking him how he thought the mean crude comments he had made about women on twitter would play against the Democrats standard campaign strategy accusing Republicans of conducting a war on women ? This is a question that goes straight to electability and it is addresses Trumps weaknesses, just as Megan asked all the candidates questions about their perceived politcal weaknesses.

So the anti-establishmentarians got right to work and added Megen Kelly to their long list of targeted politcal enemies:

Here are a couple of examples of their creativity:

Ironic that Megan Kelly is attacked using the same kind of disparaging comment about women that she was asking the Donald to explain how it will play against the democrats framing Republicans as conducting a war on women !


Donalds response to why he called women names such as "slobs" is that there are more important concerns and we don't have time to be politcally correct ? Ok then is it fair to say that the Donald is a politcal slob- hasn't he just deliverd the standard excuse for a slob being a slob? 

 *********************************

As the day progressed Donald Trump and his base descended into total meltdown.

His base revved up attacks on Megan Kelly a few notches, making much ado about some sexy pictures she once did for GQ magazine and topping it off by calling for her to be banned as a debate moderator.



And Donald took his own antics to CNN ripping on all the Fox debate moderators and some of the pundits as well but most especially he targeted Megyn Kelly using a similar crudeness in describing her as was the subject of the question she had asked him which set off his meltdown:

He adds, “Certainly I don’t have a lot of respect for Megyn Kelly, she’s a lightweight,” describing how she came out with a script and a goal of looking tough. He said, “When you meet her you realize she’s not very tough and she’s not very sharp. She’s zippo.” He further described her as having blood coming out of her eyes and her wherever and describes the brutal day Kelly has had on twitter in the wake of her misbehavior.
http://rickwells.us/blasting-kelly-wallace-and-baier-trump-bypasses-fox-goes-on-cnn-to-discuss-fox-news-debate-sabotage/
Just shortly before the debate I had seen one of the anti-establishmentarians attacks on Jeb Bush in which it was claimed that Mr Bush had called Mr Trump names using language very uncharacteristic of Mr Bush. Mr Bush was asked about those comments during the debate and simply responded by saying it was not true. No meltdown ensued.

But with Trump and his base things are different. By the end of the day they are totally unhinged. If Trumps poll numbers miraculously survive, what will he do at the next debate after going on national TV and attacking all the debate moderators, hardly a pretty picture to imagine.

Puppetmaster of the Anti-Establishmentarian Movement - A Professional Marketer in Entertainment Field

http://goo.gl/2y1vkP



I have previously seen another headline similar to the one above connected to a story line completely fabricated in the mind of the the author of the propaganda journal DCWHISPERS.COM. The author of these hear say articles with their cleverly crafted headlines and specifically targeting Rubio, is James Jeness, a professional marketer who owns the website BIGJMMedia. Although the author of the articles published by DCWHISPERS is never identified, I uncovered his identity and address by looking up DCWHISPERS.COM on WhoIs. I have provided only the link here which does not require a captcha code but I followed it  into the capcha section of WhoIs to find out more about the identity of the author of this propaganda campaign against Rubio and others. Mr Jeness does not reside in Washington DC. He resides in Anderson Indiana. It's a pretty loud whisper that is heard all the way from Washington DC to Anderson Indiana. Mr Jenesses biography reveals no expereince relative to Washington DC, No inside connections relative to Washington DC, but he does have professional connections to the entertainment industry for over thirty years:

This is from his LinkedIn biography:

So it is fair to say that in the case of DCWHISPERS- whose posts are being distributed by the anti-establishmentarians across social media,  the puppet master is professional marketer working in the entertainment business - no less! Interesting because the anti-establishmentarians are all outraged that their critics tag the Donald as an entertainer.

Once Mr Jeness concocts a hearsay article with well crafted headline and photo- his "journalism" is distributed via a network of alternate right wing media sites which are the driving force behind the Trump campaigns success. Mr Trump himself is part of the entertainment establishment which understands well the relationship between entertainment and politics and knows how to manipulate it behind the scenes as is the case with the unidentified author of the often quoted DCWHISPERS.COM

The Ever Flexible Political Victimization Strategy Of The Anti-Establishment Right.


Tweet This ! http://goo.gl/ajd0zt

I recently joined a Face Book Page called I  Love America but it turned out to be a page exclusively for those who are in agreement with the world views of the far right- which I call anti-establishmentarians- because that is what they are. They have a doctrine representing the politcal correct points of view and anyone who differs with this doctrine one iota is labeled a Liberal, a RINO, or a Progressive.





This includes the majority of the Republican Candidates in the primary race. Once so labeled one is identified as someone to whom the collective mind of anti-establishmentarians are instructed not to listen. This includes the majority of candiates opposing the Donald in the Republican primaries. It was easy for the anti-establishmentarians to land upon the Donald as their politcally correct choice for presidential nominee- they had already canceled out most candidates without a listen.

Unlike most Americans - the anti-establishmentarians had only a handful of candidates to choose from- one being Carly Fiorina- the smartest candidate amoung those lacking government expereince, one who articulates well though out solutions rather than campaigning on rhetoric alone. Unlike Trump, Carly is out there taking on Hillary, whom Trump to date has failed to mention as he targets other Republicans. Carly didn't even make it to the anti-establishmentarian's short list.

Ted Cruz got on their list despite his government expereince but Ted Cruz has set himself up as anti-the rest of Congress so he fits into their template. Then there is Carson- a nice man and interesting television pundit with some inspirational things to say but little management experience in either the government or private sector.

Then along came Trump- a multi billionaire and established household name willing to campaign against the entire government establishment- they found their man!  And now all they need to do is apply their standard campaign formula- which scarily ended up the last time around with the anti-establishmentarians campaigning against Romney during the entire election season and saying nary a word about Obama.

One of the elements of the anti-eastablishmentarian campaign strategy is to position themselves and their candidate as being victimized by the establishment:






 A couple of weeks or so ago I was hearing from the anti-establishmentarian drum beat that "they" were going to keep Trump out of the debates- setting up the standard MO that politicizes the anti-establishmentarian's candidate as being wronged by the rest of the US political world (the establishment). Now that Donald Trump is center stage at the debates, the anti-establishmentarians still spin that as being victimized by the big bad establishment- Donald Trump has been put there just in case he screws up!

 It couldn't be that Donald Trump is in the debates and at center stage because the big bad establishment is just playing by the rules in which who ever is in the prime time debate and their positions in the stage line up are determined by poll numbers ! Naw!  Don't listen to her- She's a Liberal- or a Rino- a Progressive ! Listen to us- You are being victimized by the establishment- Listen to us- You are being victimized by The establishhment- Listen to us- You are being victimized by the establishment, Listen....zzzzz- good !

Anti-Establishmentarian's Journal of Record Applies No Standards of Ethics to itself

This next story in the series on disinformation distribution via the internet is one of the most outrageous.

July 24th, 2015 The story begins with a video of Ted Cruz telling a complicated story of due process in which the punch line is that Mitch McConnel is no better than Harry Reid :

http://launch.newsinc.com/share.html?trackingGroup=90119&siteSection=ndn&videoId=29429572

In this video Senator Cruz tells a long and  difficult to follow story with a clearly identifiable message : "McConnel=Harry Reid" ,fitting neatly into the anti-establishmentarians primary message : "All Republicans= All Democrats= corrupt"

I confess that I did not have the patience to follow all the details of Mr Cruz's story. It takes far more concentration than one can expect from a public that commonly reads little beyond a headline.  I am not questioning the veracity of what Senator Cruz is saying but I do not take his telling of the story as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. In fact I am aware that Senator Cruz is positioning himself to take back the support of the anti-establishment movement in the event that Donald Trump stumbles and falls. I have seen Mitch OConnell and listened to him speak.  I am not about to accept the framing of Mitch Oconnel as another Harry Reid on the basis of one performance delivered by Senator Ted Cruz, a politican who relies far too much on showmanship, to my liking.

July 28th 2015  Breitbart.com publishes this "news":



Not only is Breitbart saying that the Republican leadership has passed a bill to fund planned parent hood- Breitbart is also reporting that the Republican leadership is putting its support behand Obama's Iran deal. None of it is true !

Here they picture their anti-establishment rock star runner up vs Mitch Connell- framed as a stand in for Harry Reid..

June 29 2015 Legislation introduced by Republicans to Defund Planned Parenthood:




The day after Breitbart tells the world that the Republians have passed a bill to fund Planned parenthood, the Republicans introduce a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. Today, on August 1st I am still seeing the story by Breitbart- that the Republicans passed a bill to fund Planned Parenthood being distributed across the web. I have not seen the story about Republicans introducing a bill to defund Planned parenthood in my social media stream.

June 29 2015 Breitbart publishes a story condemming the House for going on recess without passing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. No retraction is forth coming from Breitbart.com about the previous day's story claiming that the Republican Senate had passed a bill to fund Planned Parenthood- the story about  the bill intorduced by the Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood goes unreported by Breitbart- the media of anti-establishment movement, which propagates the message that the entire government establishment is corrupt but applies no standard of media ethics to its self.


Article from The Hill on July 30 2015
McConnell demands details on Iran side deals
545 51





By Jordain Carney - 07/30/15 10:40 AM EDT
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) slammed President Obama on Thursday, suggesting that it's unacceptable that the administration hasn't turned over agreements between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
McConnell, as well as House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), wrote to Obama earlier this month demanding that the administration hand over the two "side" deals.

"That was more than a week ago, but we still have yet to receive them," the Republican leader said. "Without this critical information, Republicans and Democrats in Congress may not be able to properly assess such a highly consequential deal with Iran. That simply is not acceptable." 
Don't hold your breath waiting for Breitbart to retract its story about Mitch McConnell and the Republicans supporting Obama's Iran deal- the disinformation story will continue to circulate the internet to be taken, without a second thought as the truth by willing anti-establishmentarians.

Headline Politics - A Device For Disinformation Distribution

 Tweet This  http://goo.gl/e20J80

According to Bill O'Reilly, a lot of people get their news strictly from the internet. I do not know how true that is and to what degree but I remember being told by a personal acquaintance, supposedly an informed acquaintance, a number of years ago that he and his wife only get their news on the internet.

This is a frightening thought after observing a few more days of headlines used to distribute disinformation across the internet. The headlines I speak of, make a statement which is a liberally construed interpretation rather than an accurate reporting of news but the headline- all by itself-  is taken as news- true news . To date all of the responders, with an exception of this author, accept the headline as true with no evidence of having read the article to find out anything further about the claim.

Here is one such typical headline

The article is about H.R. 237, a bill written by Congress in response to the new terrorist war strategy being conducted by ISIS, where in ISIS recruits home grown terrorists in the western world who travel over seas to terrorist training camps and then walk right back into their home country with passports.  The headline spins the bill as targeting ordinary Americans.  The bill, however uses the specific words "foreign terrorist organization". It is of course true that any law can be used for an unintended purpose but the headline spins the potential for abuse as the actual intent of the law and the culture of anti-establishmentarians swallow the headline whole without further thought or investigation- never clicking on the link and never reading the actual bill.

http://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20150720/H237_sus_FTO.pdf
This is one of the online comments in response to my own observations:

This is how it works. It does not say in the bill that passports can be taken from those who support Isis. What is does say is that any mildly suspected American of supporting any terrorist group can have their passport taken away by the president without due process. Let me spell this out. Do you know what are considered terrorist groups by the US government? Tea party, Young Americans for Liberty, John Birch Society, etc. Do you know what groups aren't considered terrorist groups by the US government at this time? The USA Communist party. Get it.
The only true statement about what is in the bill made in the comment above is that the bill does not mention the name "ISIS" - but why should it? That would limit the authority of the bill to only one foreign terrorist organization when there are many. The bill does not mention Obama. It does not grant authority to the office of the presidency. The authority goes to the secretary of state who must report, within one month of taking passports, to both houses of congress . And the bill specifically uses the words "foreign terrorist organization" excluding domestic organizations.- and yet the comment is written as though on the authority of one who had read the bill.

It is the clear intent of much of the disinformation being distributed through headlines is to fabricate a case against the entire government establishment. The fact that the anti-establishment culture relies on misleading headlines to spread disinformation suggests a lack of an actual basis for their rallying call against anyone with expreince in government - with the exception of Ted Cruz, and even Cruz has been displaced by Donald Trump- who tops Cruz in his qualifying lack of expereince in functioning within a system designed as checks and balances against totalitarian power.

Alinsky's Rules for Radicals: "Known as the 'father of modern American radicalism,' Saul D. Alinsky (1909-1972) developed strategies and tactics that take the enormous, unfocused emotional energy of grassroots groups and transform it into effective anti-government and anti-corporate activism. ... Some of these rules are ruthless, but they work."
 2. Of Means and Ends [Forget  moral or ethical considerations]"The end is what you want, the means is how you get it. Whenever we think about social change, the question of means and ends arises. The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. ... The real arena is corrupt and bloody." p.24
