Three Days to Revolution

by : David Glenn Cox
Monday August 9, 2010 - 18:15

By David Glenn Cox

Rage is born of desperation; it is incubated and nurtured by ignorance and neglect. It’s fathered by the unfeeling and uncaring, the safe and secure. Its mother is the destitute and hungry, the needy, those too easily cast off from society as mere statistics. It is a genie that once released from its bottle will summon up all the forces of hell to seek vengeance upon guilty and innocent alike.

"If a modern state is to rest upon a firm foundation its citizens must not be allowed to starve. Some of them do. They do not die quickly. You can starve for a long time without dying." Leader of Children’s Bureau of Philadelphia, 1931

The latest, greatest, phony, faked, fraudulent unemployment numbers were released on Friday. These official lies claim 479,000 new Americans must begin their own personal descent through Dante’s Inferno to the level of hell called unemployment in America. Then, after 99 weeks, to disappear, to no longer be a concern of our government, to cease to be a social problem but to become a legal one instead.

The National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys has reported to the Los Angeles Times numerous cases of clients showing up at their offices saying, ’If you don’t help me, I’ve got a gun in my car,’" or threatening to take poison. Murder-suicide rates are soaring all over the country and the media take little note of it. During the 1930s most newspapers were owned by safe, sedate, comfortable Republican families who weren’t about to give press ink to troublemakers, anarchists, Liberals or Communists with their pissy little hunger and homelessness problems. In their view they were just trying to make Mr. Hoover look bad.

"There is no poverty in America."
Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur, Secretary of the Interior, 1931

Bloomberg August 7, 2010- “The U.S. economy will improve slowly and another round of fiscal stimulus likely wouldn’t be effective," former Treasury secretaries Paul O’Neill and Robert Rubin said.

January 22, 1932, Bronx, New York- City Marshals and Police had moved in to evict 17 tenants who were on a rent strike. A crowd of 4,000 had gathered nearby.

“When the marshals moved into the building and the first stick of furniture appeared on the street, the crowd charged the police and began pummeling them with fists, stones, and sticks, while the non-combatants urged the belligerents to greater fury with anathemas for capitalism, the police and landlords. The outnumbered police barely held their lines until reinforcements arrived. Every single reserve police officer in the Bronx had to be called in to prevent being routed by the rioters.”

This fully illustrates that even Bambi will turn when cornered and will charge the hunters’ guns. It’s nobler to be shot down in the cause righteousness than to trade your dignity for a crust of bread and a coat of shameful cringing.

"A major second stimulus might create uncertainty and undermine confidence." Robert Rubin

“I think we are moving forward at a pretty gradual pace,” O’Neill said. “But I don’t think things are terrible.”

"When times were good the landlords didn’t offer to share their profits with us. The landlords made enough money off us when we had it. Now that we haven’t got it, the landlords must be satisfied with less." Max Kaimowitz, Bronx Rent strike leader. 1932

Now substitute the word bankers for landlords. The major banks in this country are borrowing money from the Federal Reserve at one-quarter of one percent interest and lending it back out at interest rates in the twenties. When their customers can no longer make their payments and go into default, the banks sell those accounts for pennies on the dollar to parasites. The banks claim a loss on their tax returns and take a deduction. They are made whole by the government but the parasites go after the clients virulently, filing subpoenas, attempting to attach property and garnish wages. They seek to collect thousands of dollars for a debt that they might have paid only a few hundred dollars for. You see your loss is their gain. And who are their allies and accomplices in this theft by legality? Your state and county governments, the police and sheriffs’ departments are being used as bill collectors and enforcers for these cockroach attorneys.

“Economic depression cannot be cured by legislative action or executive pronouncement. Economic wounds must be healed by the action of the cells of the economic body - the producers and consumers themselves.” Herbert Hoover

“When 90-year-old Addie Polk put the gun to her chest and pulled the trigger she was seeking an escape from foreclosure. The first shot failed to do the job so the elderly widow pulled the trigger a second time as Sheriff’s deputies waited on the porch to serve her with an eviction notice. She was rescued by her neighbor, Robert Dillion, who grabbed a ladder and climbed in a back window. Sheriff’s deputies were kind enough to radio for paramedics.”

“We also know, from studying the lessons of past recessions, that climbing out of any recession, much less a hole as deep as this one, takes some time. The road to recovery doesn’t follow a straight line. Some sectors bounce back faster than others. So what we need to do is keep pushing forward. We can’t go backwards. This morning, the Department of Labor released its monthly jobs report, showing that July marked the seventh straight month of job creation in the private sector. So jobs have been growing in the private sector for seven straight months.” Barack Obama

“We have not yet reached the goal but... we shall soon, with the help of God, be in sight of the day when poverty shall be banished from this nation.”
Herbert Hoover

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Aug. 2 said “rising wages will probably spur household spending in the next few quarters.”

In June of 1930, ten thousand members of the Bonus Army were camped across the river from the White House. The army was made up of veterans and their wives and their children. Their weapons were their poverty and their desperation while the gates of the White House were guarded with Army tanks and troops patrolled the grounds. On June the 28th the United States Army assaulted the camp on horseback and with fixed bayonets. They lit the camp ablaze and routed the marchers their wives and their children. The crowd answered with cries of “Shame! Shame!” but their cries fell on deaf ears; for this country knows no shame.

In 1934 federal relief funds were discontinued in Colorado when the state legislature failed to appropriate funds for their share of the costs. The unemployed rioted, looting food stores and relief centers. The mobs then set their sights on the state capitol building, forcing the state legislature to flee in fear of their lives. In two weeks a new bill was sent to the governor for his signature and the relief aid was resumed.

Riots can never be blamed upon the people who start them; they are the symptoms of rage born out of desperation. The blame is placed squarely upon those who cause them. The French aristocracy was not murdered for their excesses but because they ignored the suffering of the people. They made pronouncements that it’s really not that bad and it’s getting better, just wait and see.

Herbert Hoover made the same pronouncements, but to hungry farmers in Lawrence, Kansas, who had gone without food for three days because of Red Cross bureaucracy, they thought that was time enough. The farmers came to town en masse and told the town’s sheriff and Red Cross officials they had till five o’clock to release the relief supplies. After that they would take them by force, come what may.

It has been said that every nation is three days away from revolution; that the failure of government to protect its people from famine or ruin is its death sentence. There has never been a cause of revolution that has overthrown a government that did not in some measure deserve it. The people must be fed and housed and given work for meaningful remuneration.

“It is to be hoped that the normal balance of executive and legislative authority may be wholly adequate to meet the unprecedented task before us. But it may be that an unprecedented demand and need for undelayed action may call for temporary departure from that normal balance of public procedure.

"I am prepared under my constitutional duty to recommend the measures that a stricken nation in the midst of a stricken world may require. These measures, or such other measures as the Congress may build out of its experience and wisdom, I shall seek, within my constitutional authority, to bring to speedy adoption.

"But in the event that the Congress shall fail to take one of these two courses, and in the event that the national emergency is still critical, I shall not evade the clear course of duty that will then confront me. I shall ask the Congress for the one remaining instrument to meet the crisis—broad Executive power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe.

"For the trust reposed in me I will return the courage and the devotion that befit the time. I can do no less.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt

“So, for example, they’ve (Business) taken advantage of a new hiring tax credit we created that says small businesses don’t have to pay a dime of payroll tax when they hire a worker who’s been out of a job for at least 60 days. So in fact, almost half of the employees they’ve hired this year qualified for that tax credit, including one of the folks standing behind me today.” Barack Obama

“More important, a host of unemployed citizens face the grim problem of existence, and an equally great number toil with little return. Only a foolish optimist can deny the dark realities of the moment.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt

FDR threatened the government of the United States on day one with action or revolution. Obama offers to buy them lunch.

These are not my prognostications, but histories. During the 1930s riots were commonplace but were given scarce coverage by the media. There were riots in: New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Detroit, Buffalo, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Columbus (Ohio), San Francisco, St. Louis, Milwaukee, and Boston. 35,000 people in New York, 70,000 in Detroit, 50,000 in Chicago and in every case the demonstrations were about food and jobs.

"We march on starvation, we march against death,
we’re ragged, we’ve nothing but body and breath.
From north and from south, from east and from west
the army of hunger is marching."
Hunger Marcher’s song, 1932

“Under the rule of the money power, labor is plundered until the starvation point is reached and then its emaciated body is shot full of holes.”

"The issue has been forced upon us and we have retreated before it to the verge of slavery. Let us now meet it as it would have been met by the patriots of 1776.”
Eugene V. Debs

Three Days to Revolution
Wednesday August 11 - 02:00 - Posted by be7973bbc1591626...

Revolution is in the air. "Violence Violence that’s all they understand is Violence" -Mott the Hoople. It will be easy to know what side you are on, it will be the ones with ALL the money and the starved ones who produced all the wealth. History doesn’t repeat itself it rhymes, this Western World is becoming a lot like the time of the French Revolution. Only this time it will be Banksters heads that will role. It’s a Wonderful life only it looks like Pottersville at the moment.
Just an observation.

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January
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" (...)

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.

About a year into my studies, I (...)

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.

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.

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 (...)
