SPANISH CATCH – 22: Or “DEMOCRACY” FASCIST STYLE

“Democracy” in Spain seems to follow the old fascist style:  as long as you call something a “law” (or “constitution”) then it’s “legal”.  And Spanish “Democracy” says that it is illegal for a people to hold a referendum on whether to institute new government – by a free and open vote.

Spain demands you must act peaceably and responsibly, because it is a “democracy”.  But that very  “democracy” states that it can never be changed.

And so that very “democracy” (supported by it’s eminence grise, the EU) calls ILLEGAL:  “voting”, the democratic means to be free, to determine the very purpose of democracy – a government instituted by the people for the people.

The perfect CATCH – 22 !

GENERALISSIMO FRANCISCO FRANCO IS NO LONGER “STILL DEAD” ! HE’S ALIVE AGAIN IN GENERALISSIMO RAJOY !

Saturday Night Live fed us the news that Fascist Franco was still – safely – dead.

Today we know what Fake News that was.  In Spain’s Day of the Living Dead, new fascist Generalissimo Rajoy once again attacked Barcelona and once again, the “forces” (the people) of democracy died in Spain.

The Declaration of Independence: “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”.

In the hands of Spain and the EU the Declaration has become:

  “It is the Right of Government
to alter or abolish the power of the People
to grant or consent to being governed by any Form of Government
they would be so arrogant as to chose for themselves !”

9/11 IN MEMORIUM: A LETTER HOME (after Sullivan Ballou 1861)

There was found among the ashes a letter written when that time stood still.  It is a letter home – to America – from an unknown American to us all, the American Family.

==============================

MY LETTER HOME   —   had there been time ….

NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
MY OWN VERY DEAR SARAH:

WE ONCE SHARED A LETTER WRITTEN TO ANOTHER SARAH.  WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT. …

THE INDICATIONS ARE PRETTY STRONG THAT I’LL PASS – WITHIN THE HOUR. SHOULD I STILL NOT BE ABLE TO REACH YOU, I FEEL COMPELLED TO WRITE SOMETHING THAT MIGHT GET THROUGH WHEN I’LL BE NO MORE.

MY MOVEMENTS FROM HERE MAY BE STAIRWELL DOWN AND OUT – OR IT MAY BE ONE OF PAIN AND DEATH TO ME. NOT MY WILL,  BUT YOURS, O GOD, BE DONE.

IF IT’S NECESSARY THAT I SHOULD DIE – JUST FOR LIVING IN MY OWN COUNTRY, WELL, NOW, I THINK I’M READY. I HAVE NO MISGIVINGS AND NO LACK OF CONFIDENCE – NOW, IN THIS AMERICAN EXPERIMENT WHICH WE’VE BEEN LIVING IN. AND MY COURAGE DOESN’T FALTER. I SEE NOW HOW STRONGLY AMERICAN CIVILIZATION NOW LEANS UPON THE STRENGTH OF ORDINARY PEOPLE,

AND NOW – ONLY NOW – HOW GREAT A DEBT WE OWE TO THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE US THROUGH THE BLOOD AND SUFFERING OF EVERY CONFLICT, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC.

AND I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT IT WOULD PASS TO ME… O GOD … BUT I’M WILLlNG – PERFECTLY WILLING – TO LAY DOWN ALL MY JOYS IN THIS LIFE, TO HELP MAINTAIN THIS LAND, AND TO PAY THAT DEBT.

BUT YOU, DEAR SARAH, HAVE TO HELP ME NOW, WHEN I COME TO IT SO LATE. WHEN I KNOW THAT WITH MY OWN FATE I LAY DOWN NEARLY ALL OF YOUR JOYS, AND REPLACE THEM IN THIS LIFE WITH CARES AND SORROWS — WHEN, FROM FAMILY GONE FROM IMMIGRANT TO AMERICAN, I HAVE THAT DEBT TO OFFER AS THE ONLY SUSTENANCE TO OUR DEAR CHILDREN.

IS IT WEAK AND DISHONORABLE TO WRITE, NOT RUN, WHEN THE BANNER OF MY NEWFOUND PURPOSE FLOATS UNKNOWN (BUT PROUDLY, IN THIS SPACE LOST TO MAN) — THAT MY UNBOUNDED LOVE FOR YOU, MY DARLING WIFE AND CHILDREN, SHOULD STRUGGLE IN FIERCE, THOUGH USELESS, CONTEST WITH MY NEWFOUND LOVE OF THIS COUNTRY?

I CAN’T DESCRIBE TO YOU MY FEELINGS THIS DAY OF DAYS,  THIS NEW AMERICAN SABBATH — WITH ,THOUSANDS STUCK AROUND ME, MANY OF THEM MEETING THAT LAST CALL, PERHAPS, OF DEATH.   BUT I AM CERTAIN THAT DEATH IS TAUNTING ME –  SO HERE I AM COMMUNING WITH – GOD, MY COUNTRY, AND YOU

BUT, I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT, EVEN CASUALLY, AND NEVER IN MY HEART, THAT THERE WAS A WRONG MOTIVE IN JUST LIVING OUR LIVES AND ENJOYING THE HAPPINESS OF THOSE I LOVED.

AND NOW I KNOW. TOO LATE.  BUT NOW I NEED OTHERS TO BEAR MY WITNESS.(I REMEMBER) ‘SARAH, MY LOVE FOR YOU IS DEATHLESS,   IT SEEMS TO BIND ME TO YOU WITH MIGHTY CABLES THAT NOTHING BUT OMNIPOTENCE COULD BREAK. ‘

YET, I KNOW NOW, ‘MY LOVE OF COUNTRY COMES OVER ME LIKE A STRONG WIND’, BUT TOO LATE TO BEAR ME TO THE BATTLEFIELD.

AND SO I PLEAD: CALL UPON OTHERS TO BREAK THE CHAINS OF THEIR OWN LOVE AND BEAR ME – NO – BEAR ALL OF US – IRRESISTIBLY TO THE FIELD OF BATTLE.

PLEAD:  A PURE LOVE OF OUR COUNTRY.

CALL: ‘OUR TIRED, OUR POOR, OUR HUDDLED MASSES YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE, THE WRETCHED REFUSE OF THEIR TEEMING SHORE; CALL UPON THESE THE HOMELESS, TEMPEST-TOSSED’ – NOW BECOME AGAIN ONE NATION.

CALL AND THEY WILL OBEY: FOR OUR SACRED PRINCIPLES THAT WE, ONE NATION INDIVISIBLE, HOLD IN THE NAME OF HONOR THAT WE LOVE MORE THAN WE FEAR DEATH.

I HAVE, I KNOW, BUT FEW AND SMALL CLAIMS UPON MY FELLOW AMERICANS, BUT SOMETHING WHISPERS TO ME – PERHAPS IT’S THE GAPING HOLE TO COME IN ALL OUR KIDS’ LIVES – THAT THEY WILL DO THIS DUTY WHICH I HAVE FAILED.

I PRAY TO DIVINE PROVIDENCE THAT THEY WILL RETURN TO THEIR LOVED ONES UNHARMED. IF THEY DON’T, MY DEAR SARAH, NEVER LET THEM FORGET HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM NOW, AND WHEN MY LAST BREATH ESCAPES ME IN THIS LITTLE CORNER OF HELL, IT WILL WHISPER ‘MY BROTHER, MY FRIEND, MY AMERICA.’

O, AMERICA, THE MEMORIES OF THE BLISSFUL MOMENTS I HAVE LIVED AMONG YOU COME CREEPING OVER ME, AND I FEEL MOST GRATIFIED TO GOD AND TO YOU ALL THAT I HAVE ENJOYED THEM SO LONG. AND IT’S HARD FOR ME TO GIVE THEM UP AND BURN TO ASHES MY NEWFOUND HOPES OF FUTURE YEARS, WHEN IF ONLY GOD HAD BEEN WILLING, I MIGHT HAVE COME TO LEARN WE CAN’T LIVE IN PRIVATE JOYS, UNLESS WE ALSO LIVE TO DO PUBLIC GOOD AND COME TO SEE OUR LAND ENJOY OUR GOOD WORKS.

NEIGHBORS, FORGIVE ME MY MANY FAULTS, AND THE MANY PAINS I HAVE CAUSED YOU. HOW THOUGHTLESS AND FOOLISH I’VE OFTEN BEEN! HOW GLADLY I WOULD WASH OUT WITH MY TEARS EVERY LITTLE SPOT OF MY UNCARING ABOUT YOUR HAPPINESS; AND STRUGGLE WITH ALL THE MISFORTUNE OF THIS WORLD, TO SHIELD YOU AND YOURS FROM HARM.

BUT WE TRAPPED HER CANNOT. WE MUST WATCH OUR COUNTRY FROM ‘THE SPIRIT LAND’ AND HOVER NEAR YOU, WHILE YOU BUFFET THE STORMS WITH YOUR PRECIOUS FREIGHT OF FREEDOM, AND WAIT WITH SAD PATIENCE TILL PEACE COMES AND WE MEET TO PART NO MORE.  (REMEMBER, WE MEMORIZED) –

BUT, AMERICA! IF THE DEAD CAN COME BACK TO THIS EARTH AND FLIT UNSEEN AROUND THOSE THEY LOVED, WE, HERE, WILL ALWAYS BE NEAR YOU; IN THE SUNNIEST SUBURB AND IN THE DARKEST SLUM – AMIDST YOUR HAPPIEST SCENES AND GLOOMIEST  HOURS – ALWAYS,ALWAYS. AND IF YOU BE SAD, OR SICK, OR HURT AND THERE COMES A SOFT BREEZE UPON YOUR CHEEK, IT SHALL BE OUR BREATH; OR AS THE COOL AIR FANS YOUR THROBBING TEMPLE, IT SHALL BE OUR SPIRITS STANDING BY YOU.

AMERICA, DO NOT MOURN US DEAD; THINK WE ARE GONE TO LIGHT THE WAY TO VICTORY, FOR THEN WE SHALL MEET AGAIN,BUT ONLY THEN.

AMERICA, WE WAIT FOR YOU THERE ! FIGHT TO – LIVE FREE, OR DIE. COME TO US WITH VICTORY. COME TO US IN PEACE AND FREEDOM.

AS FOR OUR CHILDREN, PLEASE DON’T LET THEM GROW UP AS I DID, NEVER TO HAVE KNOWN YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD  AT FREEDOM.  AMERICA, I HAVE UNLIMITED CONFIDENCE IN YOUR CARE AND YOUR DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR CHARACTER. AMERICA, TEACH THEM TO LOVE AND CARE FOR ALL MEN OF GOOD WILL. TEACH THEM TO RESIST ALL MEN OF ILL WILL. BRING THEM TO DO GOOD DEEDS; AND MAY THEY LEARN THERE IS NO FREEDOM WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY AND NO PEACE WITHOUT FREEDOM. I CALL GOD’S BLESSING UPON THEM. I REMEMBER – MAY THE LORD BLESS THEM AND KEEP THEM AND CAUSE HIS COUNTENANCE TO SHINE UPON THEM.

PARDON, THIS SO DISHONORS SULLIVAN BALLOU’S WORDS. BUT O SARAH, O SARAH….  TEARS LEAVE NO ELECTRONIC STAINS ; FEEL MY WORDS. LIVE MY WORDS. AND PRAY AMERICA, LIVE MY UNDONE GOOD DEEDS.  I WAIT FOR YOU THERE ! COME TO ME, AND LEAD OUR CHILDREN THERE.

CHINA – IS THE REAL PROBLEM : NORTH KOREA – IS CHINA’S FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER

CHINA CREATED ITS VERY OWN FRANKENSTEIN NORTH KOREA.  NORTH KOREA LIVES ONLY BECAUSE OF CHINA.

AND FRANKENSTEIN SERVES ALL OF CHINA’S WANTS AND NEEDS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES.

FOR DECADES IT HAS FORCED THE U.S. TO EXPEND MOST OF ITS WEALTH AND MILITARY RESOURCES IN ASIA PROTECTING SOUTH KOREA AND JAPAN FROM THIS MONSTER – INSTEAD OF PROTECTING AGAINST AND COUNTERING CHINA.

AND CHINA ENJOYS A FREE LUNCH IN EXPANDING ITS MILITARY MIGHT AND EXPANDING ITS WEALTH IN ASIA WHILE AMERICA IS TIED UP IN KNOTS BY NORTH KOREA.

SO, EYES ON THE BALL:

FOLLOW PRESIDENT KENNEDY’S LEAD:

EMBARGO NORTH KOREA AND

FORCE CHINA TO HALT ITS SUPPORT.

FOLLOW PRESIDENT KENNEDY: EMBARGO NORTH KOREA.

President Kennedy knew that the U.S. could not–would not–live under a  threat of nuclear destruction that couldn’t be prevented or stopped.

Kennedy knew it was necessary to use real military force as the ONLY way to induce sufficient fear and uncertainty in the Soviet Union and their proxy Cuba so they would then negotiate for real and remove the threat to America.

Embargo North Korea.  Allow no flights out to get to countries like Iran and Syria.  Allow no shipping out to get to countries like Iran or Malaysia (their trading proxy).

Then offer to negotiate.

North Korea is China’s own Frankenstein Monster.  So, allow no Chinese oil trade to keep it afloat.

Kennedy knew he had to act to prevent missiles capable of hitting the U.S. with atomic warheads – or, as he himself said:  “THERE WASN’T ANY CHOICE. I WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED.”

Every alternative to force has been repeatedly tried and failed.  So let’s stop being Einstein’s definition of Insanity and follow Kennedy’s lead:

force to force negotiations.

THE TRIAL OF TRAVELER: HORSE GUILTY OF INCITING TO RIOT – SENTENCED TODAY !

EXTRA !

TRAVELER – ROBERT E. LEE’S FAITHFUL HORSE AND CONSTANT COMPANION WAS ARRESTED.

TRAVELER WAS UNCEREMONIOUSLY THROWN DOWN FROM HIS PEDESTAL; FOOTCUFFED AND LED AWAY.

TRAVELER IS CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT GRIEVOUS EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL HARM TO SENSITIVE LIBERALS AND BLACK AMERICANS AND OF INCITING THEM TO RIOT.

BAIL DENIED !

TRAVELER DEEMED A SERIOUS FLIGHT RISK – BASED ON HIS PAST.  THE COURT NOTED TRAVELER’S TRAVELS INTO THE PEACEFUL NORTH ON WAR RAIDS; AND HIS LATER BEHAVIOUR IN EVADING THE TERRIBLE SWIFT SWORD THAT CHASED HIM ALL  OVER THE SOUTH.

THE STADIUM WAS COMMANDEERED AS HOLDING JAIL; NOTING THAT HIS BRONZE STATURE GIVES HIM ENOUGH HEFT TO BE ABLE TO BREAK OUT OF  THE COUNTY JAIL.  INDEED, 100’s DEPUTIZED TO CLEAN THIS TEMP JAIL STABLE AND STOP ESCAPE THROUGH ITS MANY EXITS.

HIS CO-CONSPIRATOR, ROBERT E. LEE, IS SEPARATELY JAILED TO PREVENT THEM CONSPIRING AGAIN TO ESCAPE AMERICA’S GRAPES OF WRATH.

WORRISOME NEWS !

THE ASPCA STEPS IN TO DEFEND TRAVELER!

THIS IS TERRIBLY DISTRESSING NEWS TO ALL THE RIGHTEOUS MANNING THE WATCH-FIRES GUARDING AGAINST STATUE CESS-POTS COMMITTING AGRESSION AGAINST OUR PEOPLE.

WHEN ASKED WHY STEP IN:  THE ASPCA  SAID IT’S REPUTATION IS AT STAKE.  IT MUST PRESERVE ITS RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF ANIMAL RIGHTS AS THE TRUE HUMANITY; AND RELENTLESS DAMNING OF THE CRUELTY OF INHUMANE HUMANS.

WORSE NEWS !

THE ASPCA HAS HIRED FAMED SUPREME JUSTICE GINSBERG TO DEFEND TRAVELER.  SHE IS TO RESIGN FROM THE COURT FOR THIS SUPREMELY IMPORTANT CASE.

WHEN ASKED WHY SHE, A LIBERAL, WOULD TAKE THE CASE OF A CLEARLY EVIL MURDEROUS HORSE, HER CLARION CRY STRUCK SHOCK AND AWE IN THE HEARTS OF ALL.

‘DON’T FORGET’, SHE SAID, ‘LIBERAL THINKERS MUST ALWAYS SUPPORT AND DEFEND  “FELLOW TRAVELERS”’.

SHE SAID THAT IN THESE CASES, IT’S ALWAYS THE EVIL SIREN SONG OF HUMANS WHO HAVE MISLED ANIMALS.   AND IN THE CASE OF ROBT. E. LEE AND HIS FELLOW EVIL CO-CONSPIRATOR HUMANS, THEY MISLED THEIR ANIMALS TO THINK THAT SLAVERY “WOULD MAKE THEM FREE”; AND THEY WOULD BE RELIEVED OF ALL WORK BURDENS.

SO THERE CAN BE NO CULPABILITY ON TRAVELER’S PART FOR WANTING A BETTER LIFE EVEN AT THE EXPENSE OF FELLOW HUMANS.

CONVICTED !

VICTIMS VINDICATED.  TRAVELER CONVICTED ON ALL COUNTS.  PUBLIC HUMILIATION ORDERED.  MASSACHUSETTS PICKED TO MAKE HORSE STOCKS BASED ON LONG EXPERIENCE WITH HUMILIATING HUMANS.

SENTENCE

TRAVELER HAS BEEN PUT BACK ON HIS OLD PEDESTAL – BUT IN HORSE STOCKS.  ANTIFA AWARDED DAMAGES OF 100 BUSHELS OF CARROTS TO TAUNT TRAVELER WITH.  (ASPCA STATEMENT:  PLEASED WITH THE RESULT THAT SPARED THE ROD EVEN IF TRAVELER IS SPOILED.)

TRUMP – THE JACK KENNEDY WE’VE NEEDED FOR NORTH KOREA

China’s Frankenstein Monster – North Korea is the same as the Soviet Union’s Frankenstein Monster – Cuba.  Both used their vassal surrogates to checkmate America with nuclear destruction.

President Kennedy knew that the U.S. could not–would not–live under that threat of nuclear destruction that couldn’t be prevented or stopped.

Kennedy knew it was necessary to use real military force as the ONLY way to induce sufficient fear and uncertainty in the Soviet Union and their Monster so they would then negotiate for real and remove the threat to America.

That straight thinking and understanding of Evil’s Monsters–was lost after the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Until now – thank God.  Trump has risen to Jack Kennedy.  Trump, alone among the Presidents since Kennedy, understands and is willing to undertake military force to force a real negotiation with China’s Frankenstein Monster North Korea.

Kennedy said he had to act:
President Kennedy: It looks really mean [big strong U.S. against little bitty Cuba], doesn’t it? But on the other hand, THERE WASN’T ANY CHOICE.  ….
President Kennedy: Well, I think I WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED.”
