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 :

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.

This is a story that I have tried to tell for years but could not quite put the pen to the paper. I think I was blocked about revealing the emotional catharsis, which in my view is inseparable from the experience but not a subject matter that seemed appropriate to the context of the blog until now. The story suddenly found it's way out into the larger world when I needed to write an About Us page for the Shopzilla Shop where I am marketing the digital  download  time line that I created as a product to sell in the free enterprise system. The product seems more appropriate to a non-profit organization, but that is not a viable option in the USA year 2014 for the content that I am producing- and thus I went opted for the free enterprise system- which is my preference any way.

I am sure that just about everyone will tell me my approach is wrong, and this may be true, but wrong is the only way I know and so I have to function within the th…

Tweet This: http://goo.gl/BcA6ruGovernment As a Secret Society The response to my informal suggestion that public accessibility to government could be improved by making information available in a searchable data base (see previous post) subjectively confirmed that the  functioning power elite of Maine's economic development programs and policies are both intentional in instituting a political ideology that supersedes the will of the people, as expressed in the Maine State Constitution, and deceptive towards the general public.
1.Information made available on an agency website but not in a searchable database format may not provide the research and investigative tool needed by the public. The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available.

Which Currency will Emerge as Most Valued in the New World Order ?

I woke up in the morning contemplating how the world had just suddenly changed over night, or at least the human perception of the world. My thoughts then jumped to a time I have only read about, when a similar event happened in the realm of science. The story goes that around the turn of the twentieth century, scientists believed that mankind had figured everything out that there was to know about how the workings of the physical world except what was considered to be a minor detail. Existing theory could not account for why the observed spectrum of black body radiation, diverged at higher frequencies from what was predicted.

Plank solved the mystery by making a different assumption about the nature of the frequency of black body radiation. Others were assuming that radiation was continuous but Plank assumed that atoms could only vibrate at certain frequencies that were whole number multiples of a base frequency, which he called h. I hav…
