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]"

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.
