Ongoing .01% ‘Crime du jour’ analyses + Big Picture context of US rogue state empire requiring arrests: BOTH REQUIRED or ‘We the People’ will have ‘leadership’ under Prescott Bush’s motto, Karl Rove’s promise, and Ben Franklin’s prediction

“Claim everything. Explain nothing. Deny everything.”  ~ Prescott Bush, 1966 (oligarch, father and grandfather of US Presidents)

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”  ~ Three weeks before W. Bush’s election for a second term in 2004, Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove, chiding Pulitzer-winning journalist, Ron Suskind.

Among soooo many warnings of the fragility and rareness of freedom, on September 18, 1787, just after signing the US Constitution, Benjamin Franklin on what kind of government America would have:

“A republic, if you can keep it.” In his speech to the Constitutional Convention: “This [U.S. Constitution] is likely to be administered for a course of years and then end in despotism… when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other.”  – The Quotable Founding Fathers, pg. 39.

Let’s consider three questions central to being American:

  1. What do we call the kind of government we have today given one crime after another centered in Wars of Aggression, looting, and lying?
  2. How should Americans respond to their illegal and lying government?
  3. How can Americans best balance the dichotomy of rogue state empire with possibility for a future brighter than we can imagine?

What kind of government is America today?

Dictatorship means a .01% dictate that law is whatever they say. Government by dicts has been the historical result of the public’s lack of critical thinking skills to discern that “official messages” are propaganda, with constitutional republics becoming tragic-comedies. Roman historians and the US Founding Generation wrote as powerfully as one can imagine to warn present and future human beings of this danger.

A more complete definition of US government is rogue state: “A nation regarded as breaking international law and posing a threat to the security of other nations.”  Characteristics include:

  • violate international law with focus on destruction of human life,
  • threaten other nations’ security,
  • rule by authoritarian regimes,
  • severely restrict human rights,
  • sponsor terrorism,
  • proliferate weapons of mass destruction,
  • lie to their own people through controlled media,
  • behave irrationally and not in its own best interests.

I wrote an eleven-section history to demonstrate US rogue state behavior refuting the propaganda we’re all told of limited government under the US Constitution that respects ideals of our Declaration of Independence. This ongoing analysis of crime du jour is required to clearly see the world of the present, and we must always reference these unfolding current events in context of ongoing criminal empire.

Only seeing the crime du jour is what Karl Rove promised at our opening quotes, and will cripple Americans to “hope for change,” to surrender these facts to “Big Lie” gullibility that justice will somehow magically prevail. But the history demonstrates these crimes are business as usual, and why corporate media and public education must continuously distort facts to fit a narrative pretending our leaders in government, finance, and media uphold the highest American ideals.

Only seeing the historical context without the unfolding “Big Lie” crimes in the present will delude Americans that “mistakes were made” in the distant past, and somehow we’re “much better than that now.” The links in this article, and the works of hundreds in alternative media clearly explain, document, and prove ongoing .01% annual crimes killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.

Therefore, Americans must be grounded in both history and current events to powerfully think, speak, and take action to address and end these .01% crimes, open a new era of history, and unleash the unimaginable breakthroughs possible here and now in love, truth, and technology.

All human beings with a high school-level of education can recognize Emperor’s New Clothes facts of criminal dictatorial government and propaganda if they’re pointed-to and if the human beings care to look. This is a fundamental test of critical thinking skills in the real world, with basic education to discern objective and independently verifiable facts from whatever bullshit rhetoric the .01%’s focus groups conclude most likely to sell (thank you, Professor Frankfurt, for your bestseller making BS an academic term).

Indeed, the History-Social Science Framework for California Public Schools, pgs. 2, 7-8, charges teachers to:

“As educators in the field of history–social science, we want our students to perceive the complexity of social, economic, and political problems. We want them to have the ability to differentiate between what is important and what is unimportant. We want them to know their rights and responsibilities as American citizens. We want them to understand the meaning of the Constitution as a social contract that defines our democratic government and guarantees our individual rights. We want them to respect the right of others to differ with them. We want them to take an active role as citizens and to know how to work for change in a democratic society. We want them to understand the value, the importance, and the fragility of democratic institutions. We want them to realize that only a small fraction of the world’s population (now or in the past) has been fortunate enough to live under a democratic form of government, and we want them to understand the conditions that encourage democracy to prosper. We want them to develop a keen sense of ethics and citizenship. And we want them to care deeply about the quality of life in their community, their nation, and their world.”

American school children learn “limited government” is an idea basic and central for any people to live free from dictatorial government. Limited government means:

In contrast, absence of limited government means government is unlimited; that is, with powers of whatever is dictated (literally said) whenever said. Government without limits is therefore a dictatorship.

George Washington emphasized public education of this central idea for freedom in the cumulating message of his 45 years of service with his Farewell Address, an open letter to the American public.

Please give George two minutes of your attention. I mean, if George personally asked, you would do so, true?

“All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.

However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion…

In offering to you, my countrymen, these counsels of an old and affectionate friend, I dare not hope they will make the strong and lasting impression I could wish; that they will control the usual current of the passions, or prevent our nation from running the course which has hitherto marked the destiny of nations. But, if I may even flatter myself that they may be productive of some partial benefit, some occasional good; that they may now and then recur to moderate the fury of party spirit, to warn against the mischiefs of foreign intrigue, to guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism; this hope will be a full recompense for the solicitude for your welfare, by which they have been dictated.”

George’s admonition of “impostures of pretended patriotism” to “direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities” is present in US and developed nations’ tragic-comic “Big Lie” crimes.

As this link on unlawful war explains and documents the conservatively uncontested history, a nation’s armed attack upon another nation is unlawful in all cases except in self-defense from an attack by that nation’s government (or imminent threat). This is similar to self-defense law for you and me on the street: physical attack is unlawful in all cases except in self-defense from attack or imminent threat. The current US armed attacks fail to meet this lawful requirement.

Teachers would fail a student on a question who couldn’t recognize armed attacks beyond the limit of clearly defined “self-defense” is not limited government, but an act of unlimited government, illegal, and would result in calls for arrests from all with Oaths to uphold the nation’s constitution.

School children in California are taught “limited government” in grades 5, 10, 11, and 12.* For example, the context of 11th grade US History (page 150):

“By the end of grade eleven, students should see the relevance of history to their daily lives and understand how the ideas and events of the past shape the institutions and debates of contemporary America. Living in a free society is a precious inheritance; it should not be taken for granted. Students should recognize that our democratic political system depends on them—as educated citizens—to survive and prosper.”

Victory will happen in an “Emperor’s new clothes” moment as those of us writing and reading in alternative media continue real leadership by pointing-out the OBVIOUS until we have the support of those in law enforcement and military willing to live their Oaths, trust the naked facts objectively true for anyone to verify, and strategically act to end the worst crimes nations can commit.

*California Department of Education: History-Social Science Framework for California Public Schools. References to “limited government”: Sociopolitical Literacy (a “must”; pg. 19), Grade Five US History (pg. 74, 5.8:4), “recognize the danger of concentrating unlimited power in the hands of the central government.” Grade Ten World History (pg. 129), Grade Eleven US History (pg. 140, 150, 11.1), Grade Twelve US Government (pg. 164, 12.1:4) “(Students shall) explain how the Founding Fathers’ realistic view of human nature led directly to the establishment of a constitutional system that limited the power of the governors and the governed as articulated in the Federalist Papers.”

How should Americans respond to illegal and lying .01% government?

First, Americans must command a critical mass of the following facts:

People around the world view the US as the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country. The data confirm this conclusion:

Rather than “drain the swamp” and focus US resources on US upgrades, President Trump joins our opponents with violating war law from two US treaties that armed attack is only lawful if, and only if, the US is under attack by another nation’s government. Complete explanation, documentation, and objectively verifiable facts at links:

Second, given the prima facie evidence, it’s unreasonable for Americans to “hope for change” from Donald Trump’s “leadership.” We the People must demand .01% arrests or continue to serve as minions and work animals to rogue state empire. Until .01% arrests prove real leadership to stop ongoing slaughter of millions of human beings, harm to billions, and looting of trillions, it is only reasonable for Americans to embrace the evidence only lightly summarized in this article to conclude ongoing illegal .01% empire under a new “teleprompter reader-in-chief,” lying psychopathic puppet, oligarchic tool on the Right hand of one vicious imperial political body.

The categories of crime include:

  1. Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
  2. Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
  3. Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
  4. Tens of trillions in looting, including $6.5 trillion just reported by the US Department of “Defense” as “lost.”

US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

3-minute videoPolice, Military – Was your Oath sincere?

Command of the facts requires demand for .01% arrests. 

It’s that simple for a competent citizen response.

Real Americans cannot pretend to deserve freedom if they reject factual embrace of our most important policies, especially lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity for neo-slavery imperialism that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions. Real Americans cannot pretend these crimes do not require immediate arrests to stop this vicious psychopathic parasitism.

Can you argue for responsible citizenship given facts of massive .01% crimes, along with the obvious legal response of arrests to stop the crimes?

How can Americans balance rogue state empire with possibility for a future brighter than we can imagine?

You need to answer for yourself. I start with exactly what I write:

  1. Command the facts that are important for you to know and communicate to interested others.
  2. Have intellectual integrity and moral courage to demand .01% arrests. With all respect: how the fuck could you not do this as a responsible citizen? How could you justify standing aside in a slaughterhouse of both human and other species by intentional policies of destruction and looting covered by paper-thin lies?
  3. Exercise/practice your moral, philosophical, and/or religious ideals. Time to live what you know, not just believe/know it.

Let’s consider this last point. Those of us who are messengers for a future brighter than we have the capacity to imagine are too few in numbers to affect policy outcomes (apparently and yet), and too many for humanity to ignore.

We are in numbers to offer choice, and only choice, pointing to facts for an end of rogue state empire, and beginning an era of truth, love, and game-changing technology.

We are deadly serious in lively self-expression. 95%+ of human beings want peaceful and loving cooperation; it’s only our “leaders” who psychopathically manipulate the public into ongoing lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression.

The good news we messengers represent is that ending these War Crimes is an Emperor’s New Clothes condition: think, speak, and take action for our Brothers and Sisters to see simple facts. As I explain in hypothetical conversations with George Washington (herehere), the US citizen position seems insufficient to stop the empire without recognition among US military and law enforcement that the wars they “serve” are not even close to lawful, and the exact type of armed attacks that US treaties after two world wars were meant to end forever.

1-minute glimpse (full documentaries here and here, among many) into available technology we have today (and here) for architecture, transportation, and beauty that are cheaper and far more efficient than today’s designs, that should be fully tested in at least one pilot project with connected facts fully communicated to Americans (and never will be as long as corporate media is a tool of existing rogue-state wanna-be dictators):

The economy we’re sold is in Orwellian inversion: we’re told debt is money, when it’s actually .01%-created debt that We the People “borrow” and then repay at interest. Americans are thereby debt-slaves: The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly.

Please read the above paragraph once more.

Now look to verify for yourself.

But wait, there’s more you must see and feel with your soul:

For Americans still zombiefied to “believe” in America, please embrace the reality that 40% of US children live at least one year of their lives in under-measured poverty, while oligarchs most responsible literally laugh in grandiose glee of the poverty they euphemise as “income inequality.” Please absorb this 1-minute reality check:

You must see a few more if you want to know our slavery, and the power of freedom from literal criminal fraud:

15-minute video of obvious solutions: Mark Anielski and Ellen Brown’s powerful 15-minute response to an interview at the Seizing an Alternative conference (and here, with videos here) with former World Bank economist Herman Daly and co-author John B. Cobb of For the Common Good (video should start at 1:04:43):

We are 100% responsible for and empowered to orchestrate our thoughts, words, and actions.

Where do you care to invest them?

How do you practice/live your ideals that you most dearly cherish?

How much do you trust in God/One to hold this Earth adventure in Love and Justice?

Enjoy the adventure of practicing your highest sense of virtue. 6-minute music video, I choose Love:
