HE WHO DECIDES


.

“All significant concepts of the modern theory of the state are secularized theological concepts not only because of their historical development - in which they were transferred from theology to the theory of the state, whereby, for example, the omnipotent god became the omnipotent lawgiver - but also because of their systematic structure, the recognition of which is necessary for a sociological consideration of these concepts. The exception in jurisprudence is analogous to the miracle in theology. Only by being aware of this analogy can we appreciate the manner in which the philosophical ideas of the state developed in the last centuries.”

“The exception is more interesting than the rule. The rule proves nothing; the exception proves everything. In the exception the power of real life breaks through the crust of a mechanism that has become torpid by repetition.”

“Sovereign is he who decides on the exception.”

Carl Schmitt, Political Theology: Four Chapters on the Concept of Sovereignity (also known as the "Crown Jurist of German National Socialism, also known as Nazism)

WB: If you want to concoct a philosophical theory of extrajudicial killing, Carl Schmitt is Mr Ground Zero. Schmitt was just the kind of chap who could have written a wonderful 16 page memo explaining extra-judicial killing under Presidential authority. In fact, for Hitler, that is apparently precisely what he did.

The orginal image was "The Convict" by George Grosz. George Grosz was an activist/artist of the Berlin Dada movement. One who took great issue with the kind of thinking evidenced above.

So why do you think NDAA, drone use in America and Obamacare are allowed to happen? It's because there is no law, and no Constitution because there is no legal President--- Obama is a Usurper, and not a natural born Citizen, as he was born British, of a British subject father, who was never a US Citizen. He would not be eligible if born in the White House.

Speak the truth WB and it will set you free. You are only biting around the edges-- you are a steam vent. Get some skin in the game. Alert the public! Are you afraid? The way back is mass awareness of the Usurpation and congressional and judicial treason that has occurred. All bills the Usurper signed, appointments made and executive orders given then would be null and void. Treason would be apparent and the Central banker wizards would be exposed and on the defensive--- but I guess that's too logical. Get a clue.

I could live with this if we are given the option of opting out of government kill lists, warrantless searches, Indefinite detention and Fema camps. If millions of American lemmings  -sheeple  -  think they are safer by giving up their rights, then let them be slaves. If they can't sleep at night worrying about getting eaten by the boogeyman, I say we give them a free room at the nearest Fema camp. Just leave me and my family alone. I choose to keep my liberty. I choose to be free. If the boogeyman comes after me , he'll be met at the front door with my AR-15.

Fully agreed, but no state ever has done that or ever will do that.

Once obedience was optional, people would opt out and the state would be forced to convince you to give them money - like businesses do.

Coercion is THE essential operation of the state - of every state. Without that they'd be mere businesses.

That's great B.

It is an image that is still shy of a representation that captures the extent of the evil within, that traverses, the partical fields and is constelleted into form as the Obama mass of deception and greed.

It is great in that it shows the outward seepage of corruption behind the US presidency.

All these national holidays are for federal/state/local/bankers/USPS to work as little as possible, but of course they work as little on the job also, so I guess it really doesn't matter.

The sands of time. We all pass through one at a time.

Every person has a theology that their philosophy passes into and out of on it's way to and from their place in the construct of their particular existence on earth.

Theology is often disparaged as an obscene religious devotion to the miraculous yet secularists rely on the same phenomenon to justify the appropriation of the Potters’ sovereignty when they assign it to the clay.

Ephesians 6:12

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

“Sovereign is he who decides on the exception.”

 

 

First Moses says,

“I will make you jealous by that which is not a nation,
By a nation without understanding will I anger you.”

 And Isaiah is very bold and says,

“I was found by those who did not seek Me,
I became manifest to those who did not ask for Me.”

But as for Israel He says, “All the day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and obstinate people.”  Romans 10:20-22

 

For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.  For it is written,

As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall give praise to God.”

So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.  Romans 14:10-12 NASB

a relative was concerned that her absentee ballot required extra postage (but there was nothing on the mailer to indicate so - which she thought was some sort of plot to disallow her vote) i said, first of all if your ballot is absentee, they don't count it anyway unless the election is very close. your ballot goes into a box, and if prop Z by example is close then they open the boxes and count the votes for Z. if you don't vote absentee then Diebold counts your votes, so if you weren't going for the status quo then your vote gets thrown away. as Bukowski said, "the only difference between a democracy and a dictatorship, is that in a democracy first you vote, and then they tell you what to do.."

U.S. Senate Shames America

Vultures Feast on Purple Heart ( and fellate the donkey to save israel )
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/02/15/vultures-feast-on-purple-heart/
.
.."
Mark Twain was probably the first who discovered the ugly truth about Congress, which he described as “the smallest minds and the selfishest souls and the cowardliest hearts that God makes.”

Any decent democratic dictator, moderate drag lord or foreign palace puppet could reasonably expect royal reception & standing ovations on the Hill as Gorbi & mujahedin used to enjoy.

However, if an individual, even an American citizen who happened to be a decorated war vet and two-time Senator, dares to exhibit the traces of ‘reprehensible’ thinking, independent from US special interests, he’s a fair game for Abu Ghraib treatment by the US Senate, the fossilized repository of imperial hubris and parochial exhibitionism.

Israelis see their ownership of US government in jeopardy
http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/02/16/289184/israeli-ownership-of-us-g...
.
"...US hostility towards Iran is only one example of a self-destructive policy imposed on America by Israel. In fact, the whole “war on terror” - in reality, a war on Islam - is an Israeli fabrication.

Benjamin Netanyahu created the “war on terror” in 1979 at the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism (JCIT). As scholar Nafeez Ahmed writes, the JCIT “established the ideological foundations for the ‘War on Terror.’” Participants at the conference included George H.W. Bush, Richard Pipes, Sen. Henry M. Jackson, Shimon Peres, and many other high-level Israeli and US military, intelligence, and political personalities. Netanyahu’s JCIT proposed to deceive the American public, and the world, by wildly exaggerating the dangers of “international terrorism” and even manufacturing a nonexistent “terrorist threat” to mobilize Western populations behind aggressive policies.

In 1996, Netanyahu, as Prime Minister of Israel, commissioned a paper entitled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.” The paper’s lead author was neoconservative Zionist extremist Richard Perle. Co-authors included such neocon Israel-first fanatics as Douglas Feith and David Wurmser - the same folks who would lead the War on Terror propaganda campaign after 9/11. " .... dr. k.b.

they have an exceptional plan to destroy, foreclose on and then own, that territory
formerly known as the usa, while simultaneously inspiring the uneducated population thereof to kill and die for their greater realm dominance and pillage.
and then they let you fellate their donkey and laugh about it. we are all

potus is nothing if not clever, picking a republican for DOD and then watching other republicans pummel him. how far do you think he'll go for his pick? who wins if congress blocks hagel's appointment? answer: AIPAC. if potus has to reluctantly withdraw his pick, even while demagoging all the time, he still hands a victory to AIPAC. think a bit, about all the bluster on healthcare, who really got what they wanted? the healthcare industry. potus campaigned on change, and changed nothing. every time he fights the good fight and loses, you feel better, but you end up worse off. this is just more vintage obama. and when obama was the only vcte against arming the rebels in syria, do you think that might be what AIPAC really wants (which is not a lot of sophisticated weapons in the hands of an unstable regime in a nation on their own border). and besides hagel might say these things, but his authority is limited and his role, like clintons appointment to sec of state was largely a way to keep her out of the loop so she wouldnt run against him in his reelection. if you suppose the hagel appointment is as simple as some congressional types showing their AIPAC colors you're just cannon fodder for the potus propaganda machine. he could have just as easily made changes to existing policy without publically calling them out. hagel is a red herring.

but ... consider this. the drone operator is commanded,
by strangers, to kill other strangers and then expected to
maintain a healthy and balanced cognitive skill set. there
would have to be some recognition and acknowledgment for that
trick otherwise they might just not stay on the farm or
socially connected. maybe a purple prefrontal cortex award
to pin to the forehead? or a chip to be inserted there ...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prefrontal_cortex
.
"This brain region has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making and moderating social behavior.[1] The basic activity of this brain region is considered to be orchestration of thoughts and actions in accordance with internal goals.[2]

The most typical psychological term for functions carried out by the prefrontal cortex area is executive function. Executive function relates to abilities to differentiate among conflicting thoughts, determine good and bad, better and best, same and different, future consequences of current activities, working toward a defined goal, prediction of outcomes, expectation based on actions, and social "control" (the ability to suppress urges that, if not suppressed, could lead to socially unacceptable outcomes).

"Overview
The Huggable™ is a new type of robotic companion being developed at the MIT Media Lab for healthcare, education, and social communication applications. The Huggable™ designed to be much more than a fun interactive robotic companion. It is designed to function as a team member that is an essential member of a triadic interaction. Therefore, the Huggable™ is not designed to replace any particular person in a social network, but rather to enhance that human social network. "
.
http://robotic.media.mit.edu/projects/robots/huggable/overview/overview....
.
http://phys.org/news148727070.html
"The movements, gestures and expressions of the bear convey a personality-rich character, not a robotic artifact," the MIT Media Lab's Web site explains. "A soft silicone-based skin covers the entire bear to give it a more lifelike feel and heft, so you do not feel the technology underneath. Holding the Huggable feels more like holding a puppy, rather than a pillow-like plush doll."
.
comment:
the robots and the humans will have to learn to get along
so the human will devolve to the level of development of
the technology, that might be what goes wrong some more?
of course the technology will have a learning and evolutionary
curve and some humans will probably survive for a time.
.
"..And some would argue they are even an extravagance, given that a robot can be any shape that will allow it to best perform its function. Yet researchers and designers remain fascinated by the allure of the mechanical friend, the humanoid robot.

It is also surprising for cultural reasons. “Generally speaking, Europeans and Americans prefer their robots to look like machines, they do not like the ambiguity of a robot that looks like a person,” explains Bruno Siciliano, a robotics researcher." ..Your robotic friend, the humanoid robot
