"Peddling fiction" versus "inconvenient truths"...

Presented with little comment - Grabbed from the front page of CNN - ivory tower ignorance or willful blindness, you decide...

h/t @momomiester

But have no fear, America - While Obama says there's no "doom and gloom", Hillary is "monitoring" the situation...

I liked you better when you (briefly) stopped trying to hide your spam links.

Don't be afraid. If the content is good, people will come to it. If it's not good enough to show openly, then it's probably not worth reading.

First of all, Obama is a Muslim, and muslims cover for each other.

Muslims are against Christians. It's pretty simple, they hate Christians. All the rest is bullshit.

And Hillary is a moneyslut who will destroy what's left of America for money. Your lives don't matter.


So to all the geniusses who voted for Obama and who will vote for Hillary: I hope your her first victim.


And it wouldn't hurt for people to start reading some history on Muslims and Christians, and I'm not talking about a 10 minute youtube video, I'm talking about books.

Start why the crusades started.

Start where the word Assasin comes from.

Start with the Arab slave routes.

White people never hunted down black people, Arabs did. So any fucker, especially the black morons who think that the white people are evil, you're just dumb.

For all the black people who feel unrespected: Go to Liberia! It's the holly land of the freed slaves! Look at what kind of a wonderfull place they made it!

Thanks for a rare, fresh breath of truth and clarity. If often blows my mind of the idiocy of these morons screaming with shaking fists at shadows because they are too ignorant to know or try to know their own history, or how we made it to this place.

Sometimes you just think you're are the only one that knows or cares to find out the facts or history of such things.

In ZH I find kinsmanship, thank you fellow ZH'ers.

Any particular book recommendations regarding the crusades, assasssin or slave routes?

So that whole part where Europeans conquered and colonized the Americas, Africa and Asia was because the Muslims told them too? Or was it the Jews? Fuck people are so willfully dumb sometimes. The most parsimonious answer is always that sociopaths rise to the top and rot every institution they touch. The story of human history after the adoption of agriculture has been written in the blood spilled by sociopaths. The rest of us are just along for the ride. Inevitably the sociopaths make things so bad that they get driven out by the plebs, constraints are put in for a time, but, eventually, the monsters find their ways back into society, the rot begins again, rinse and repeat. Until humans decide to ostracize this phenotype and put crippling costs upon sociopathic behavior, we are not going to be free. You could get rid of every radical Wahhabi imam, every Rothschild, every Bush and Clinton, etc., but new ones will always pop up to take their place. Lets cut the European pitty party bullshit though; by the time of the Crusades Europeans had already started major wars and conquered parts of Africa and Asia for over, oh, three thousand years (and if we count whatever the hell they did to the native Neanderthals, 30,000+ years)? Not to mention set up colonies in North America already (although the Vikings didn't prove terribly adept at beating the native Americans, so they didn't get very far). Crying about blowback (especially blowback via a Judeo-Christian derived religion...) is just weaksauce. So it was cool when the Romans took slaves, but when the North Africans strike back after you allowed the rot to destroy your empire, you cry not fair! Man up and own up, and maybe realize that the problem is just primates in general are pretty horrible people....

"Euorpeans" didn't conquer jack diddly.  Let's sound that out... "You're-a-peon"  Got that?

The Europeans were conquered by the Money Power Aristrocracy... and then used to conquer other places ON BEHALF OF THE MONEY POWERED ARISTOCRACY, or Debt-Money Monopolists in today's terms.

The average European is enslaved to the debt-money system...  yeah, it is a "house slavery" up to this point for most people, but those that can apply mathematics to the debt system know that the house slavery aspect is about to give way to the field slavery aspect...

Stop letting those who would be your cognitive masters PROVIDE YOU WITH THEIR FRAME OF REFERENCE THAT SERVES THEIR INTERESTS.

Think independently based on your theory of human nature...

All Risk No Reward's picture

Obama is not Muslim - that's a Debt-Money Monopolist false narrative to keep you distracted from the TRUTH - OBAMA IS BANKSTER ALL THE WAY!

Hi doesn't give one rats petard about any ordinary Muslim...  or an aorfinary person of any background.  He's sellin' out for sheckels... and he works for the MONEY POWER DEBT-MONEY SHECKEL MANUFACTURERS, the only system better than religion for taxing the people and empowering oneself without the masses even knowing it.

Obama is literally losing his mind. I think he's actually been eating and loving his own bullshit for so long, and now that reality is not matching what he thought would happen... his mind is literally snapping. The laughter and smirk and off-topic veer at the conference about the German shooting are good evidence I think.

Narcissistic personality disorder is a real thing...


Per the Mayo Clinic:  Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

After the Hildebeast picks her VP tomorrow, they'll have a new campaign slogan; "Kaine and Unable 2016".  It's a little less distracting than "Hillary for Prison 2016".

i have always liked "hillary clinton for prisoner of the united states".  because it sounds closer and they're federal charges, potentially.

but kaine and unable is pure gold.  she has no admirable accomplishment.

Hellary is quite good at duping democrats - and that's her job function.

She's plenty able.

She finances and arms al Qaeda terroists that engaged in black Aftican genocide... she used her al Qaeda proxy army to break international law and overthrow the best example of a debt-free socialist country in the world - Libya.  She tried to overthrow Syria...  all so the Banskters can set up more debt-money central banks and threaten Iran with international war cirmes.

In short, that witch has orchestrated more carnage than Hitler did before war was declared on him...  to save Polan...  which they threw under the buss and let Stalin rape the country worse than hitler could probably imagine.

But that's conecting dots that Rockefellers don't want you to connect...

Kina's picture

Most people have a degree of narcissism, else the human race would have died out.  The higher you strive for power the more narcissistic you are. Not surprising that most politicians have a large degree of narcisism, except maybe the self made independt rich types  aka Ron Paul, who already have their success and peaks and achievments in life and satisfied a lot of the narcassistic drive. The worse narcassist have a total lack of empathy, inability to understand the effect their actions have on people around them, total emotional disconnect.  And thus no remorse.


It has been said that in politics that if you want loyalty, get a dog.

Escrava Isaura's picture

new Kina: Most people have a degree of narcissism.


How about Libertarians narcissists? Is that any better?


Well, let’s take a look at it, and then you tell us.


“if you care about other people that’s now a very dangerous idea. If you care about other people you might try to organize or to undermine power and authority. That’s not going to happen if you care only about yourself. Maybe you can become rich, you don’t care whether other people’s kids can go to school or afford food to eat or things like that. In the United States that’s called libertarian for some wild reason. I mean it’s actually highly authoritarian but that doctrine is extremely important for power systems as a way of atomizing and undermining the public.”

Chomsky is an undeniably brilliant man who uses his intellect to strip other men of their rights.


For that, he is more guilty than most.


And you yourself are a cunt, and likely a smelly spic.

So, you aren't just an idiot, you're a Chomsky following idiot. Fabulous. God help us if people like Chomsky ever get into power, we'll have another Jacobite Comité de salut public... but I bet you'd like that.

nmewn's picture

It was an incredible passage to post wasn't it? It was all there for the eye to see...

“if you care about other people that’s now a very dangerous idea."(Edit: Because caring, means different things to different people, perhaps?)

"If you care about other people you might try to organize or to undermine power and authority." (Edit: By reshuffling the deck chairs OF WHO has power and authority...into what new paradigm pray tell...confiscation by "the new authorities"? That is something very different from "caring" isn't it?)

"That’s not going to happen if you care only about yourself." (Edit: Correct. But the assumption is also being made here that those "newly appointed authorities" care ONLY about you, not themselves. This is demonstrably false from Maduro to Mao.)

"Maybe you can become rich, you don’t care whether other people’s kids can go to school or afford food to eat or things like that." (Edit: Because school is run by a government who "cares" and food just miraculously appears on store shelves to be bought, never ever grown, hunted or harvested.)

"In the United States that’s called libertarian for some wild reason." (Edit: The freedom to be left alone, to avoid contact with new or old government authoritarian paradigms and the people who promote them is a very dangerous idea isn't it?)  

"I mean it’s actually highly authoritarian but that doctrine is extremely important for power systems as a way of atomizing and undermining the public.” (Edit: And at the end of it all, to Chomsky, the libertarian is actually an authoritarian?...for striving to be independent, to be responsible for oneself, to try and train others in "the public" to be independent, to think for themselves.

Well, we certainly can't have that!

In fact to say that the new boss is just a statist variation/representation of the old boss, just an apparition of the mind, with no expectation of personal gain for having done so is quite suspicious!...lmao!

No one actually cares if other people's kids get to eat. Other people's kids are just competing with your own kids. We make exceptions for people of our own "tribe" since thats what evolution drove us to.

Ms No's picture

"DARVO seems to be a combination of projection, denial, lying, blame shifting and gaslighting."

You can transfer that right into our macro situation as well.  Those who claim to be a victim with "righteous indignation" are our victimizers.  Any true paycho or narcissist will do this.  The gaslighting breaks down peoples psychology.  We are dealing with all of those tactics, all the time.
