Let the sky fall, let the sun crash and commence with the days of iron rain. Let the blood of the guilty and the tears of the innocent mix and intermingle in the sewers of greed. There is no bipartisanship in Washington; there is only buy partisanship. The President, still in his first month in office, has had dinner with Republican pundits. He has gone to Capitol Hill to meet with both House and Senate Republicans.

He has supported a stimulus bill that he has openly admitted to being less than perfect. House and Senate Republicans complained that the bill was written by the Democrats and that their suggestions were ignored; that President Obama met with them but didn’t hear them. Also that the stimulus bill is filled with pork. Three Republican senators crossed over to vote with the Democrats. One, Arlen Specter, is already being attacked on right wing radio and the others soon will be.

Timothy Geithner proposed a new banking rescue package before Congress and took questions. Wall Street, for its part, threw a tantrum. They didn’t like the plan; it isn’t the plan that they wanted. They gleefully accepted a three-page memorandum for the TARP bailout plan from Mr. Geithner’s predecessor, Hank Paulson, because it promised a free ride. The banks would get the money, no strings attached, and the Federal Reserve would lower interest rates to near zero to allow the banks to charge 26% interest on credit cards and still earn a 25% profit.

House Republicans didn’t like the Geithner plan; Wall Street didn’t like the Geithner plan. The financial news network, CNBC, didn’t like the Geithner plan; Michelle Caruso-Cabrera was livid, shouting to be heard, “I don’t believe in this!” Ms. Cabrera is the Cruella de Vil of the CNBC studio, who once described the Europeans as people who live in tiny houses and smell bad.

Cabrera was obviously angry, shouting, “Where are the details? I thought the administration was in a hurry on this!” In Geithner’s defense, it took God seven days to create the heavens and the universe, and Geithner has only been on the job twelve days due to Republican foot dragging on his confirmation. I hardly think that Geithner’s powers rival those of God! On the other hand, God didn’t have any Republicans to hinder him in his plans. If he had there is no telling if the heavens and the universe would have ever been completed. They might have filibustered the Heavens and Universe Amendment arguing, “Why do we need both?”

God would have said, “Let there be light,” and the Republicans would have maintained that God only wanted that light so he could pass it along as part of his big-bang spending package. What’s this light going to cost us? The Republicans would argue, “The Congressional Budget Office foresees the program expanding without limits, and who is going to pay for it?” You see, that is why he is God and Geithner is just the Treasury Secretary. God had no opposition, he ignited the big bang and let the chips fall where they may. Perhaps with a few committee meetings we’d have monkeys that don’t throw poop and dogs that would make better choices of whom to call their best friends. A parliamentary discussion might have stripped humans from the final bill altogether, or at the very least, Republicans.

Twelve days in and Cabrera is screaming, “How can we believe him?" (Geithner). But a better question is, how can anyone believe CNBC? A low-definition monotone of buy, buy, buy, all bad news is explained as a good reason to buy stocks and all good news is explained as proof that it’s time to buy stocks! For a year I have listened to CNBC pundits tell me the sub prime mortgage crisis will be contained. Then they said that the world would decouple from the US economy. And that twelve thousand was the floor, then ten, then nine; as late as last week one of their pseudo experts predicted the markets to rise two thousand points in the next few months.

Cabrera’s soul sister, Erin “Black Widow” Burnett, once asked, “It’s a little lead paint on toys, what’s the big deal?” Dennis “human dildo” Kneale is a machine, spouting predictable corporate pabulum on a daily basis, calling on union auto workers to accept pay cuts because “they are lucky to keep their jobs.” Yet, within 24 hrs, he described restrictions on executive pay as "punitive.”

They are like the guys that hang out in front of dog and horse tracks, selling tips sheets. They are experts at telling you how to spend your money, but they have no intention of going in themselves. They are the voice and the face of corporate propaganda, their programs are sponsored by banks and brokerage houses and no one bothers to even whisper, "conflict of interest." Geithner is called a tax cheat while Bernie Madoff is still referred to as a suspect, even after having confessed to the crime.

Fox News, Fox Business, CNBC, Rush and the whole bunch of them spout the same complaints on cue. Cabrera hollers like a woman scorned, with outrage and fury, but it’s all just a canard. Geithner can’t give all the details because he doesn’t have them. What would FDR have answered on December 8th when he declared war on Japan if Republicans had asked, “How are you going to win this war? What are all the details that will bring us to Tokyo Bay?” Geithner laid out the outline of a plan, a plan subject to the whims of Congress. The whims of Congress that would then change all of the figures, which Cabrera was screaming for, and once that happened Cabrera would cry out in righteous indignation, “I knew he was lying!”

Rush Limbaugh is their biggest, brightest star. He also has the biggest mouth and shoots from the hip through his lips. When Rush said that he wanted to see Obama fail, he meant it. Maybe it was just a Freudian slip, but rest assured he meant it. And the cohorts on CNBC and Fox all shouted hallelujah, amen, testify brother! This party that calls itself Republican has, over its history, been involved with many coup plots against the lawful government of the United States.

It has participated in criminal activity such as break ins and wire tapping; it has endorsed torture and attempted to make legal the stripping of American citizenship. Less than a decade ago this party argued against its own long-held position of state sovereignty in order to get their candidate declared President by a Supreme Court that had two judges with family members working on the Republican candidate’s staff. Then just to bury the body good and deep, the Supreme Court added to their decision, “Just this once.”

Paula Jones, after her case was settled, was suddenly offered $50,000 for a nose job by a poor soul who just felt sorry for her. This in addition to the $850,000 she received in the settlement. After first being represented by Washington attorneys Gilbert Davis and Joseph Cammarata, her case was then taken on by a conservative legal organization, the Rutherford Institute. The Bush administration, in the name of compassionate conservatism, did more to limit American freedoms than any other administration including Lincoln’s, which was fighting a civil war.

Let us wipe the stars from our eyes. These Republicans are not going to cooperate, not now, not ever. They will use every tool at their disposal to subvert, obstruct, divert, and defame because, in the words of their hero, they want to see Obama fail. If you or a few million other Americans suffer, well, they just don’t care. Why should they? They never cared before; they’re the party of self, self-righteous and self-aggrandizing. They accept their wealth as a God-given prerogative to rule over the unwashed multitudes. Even now they preach if we don’t do anything the economy will fix itself in a year or two. We just have to take our medicine, but what they mean is you have to take their medicine and that’s just too bad for you.

The have proven by their behavior that they are not a party of democratic principles but a party of semi-compassionate fascism. They will cede no ground because of an election, or a wave of public sentiment. They will do whatever they deem necessary to bring down this administration, even let the sky fall.

So, let the sky fall, let the sun crash and commence with the days of iron rain. Let the blood of the guilty and the tears of the innocent mix and intermingle in the sewers of greed. They seek the truth through gold, eternal life through eternal wealth, and the gospel of freedom through the cleansing of the iron rain. They see men as tools and tools as men; Heaven and Hell being all in one place, at their discretion alone. The war has begun, the blood will flow into the crop circles of the damned, and in the puddles of the iron rain.

After all, giving a nation a "Bill of Rights", without giving them a "Bill of Responsibilities" to keep the parasites in check, was a sure-fire recipe for disaster, wasn’t it?

Hey, it’s the American way.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
