Scams

The media in this society perpetuate several blatant scams. Among them:

1.) That the Democrats and Republicans are NOT part of the same political establishment. They’re controlled by the same people. Their main members come from the same elite schools. (Every President since 1988 has been a graduate of Harvard or Yale.) After work, they go to the same D.C. restaurants and parties. Their policies, with tactical differences, are a continuum.

In broad terms, George W. Bush and Barack Obama are the same guy.

2.) Man-made global warming/climate change.

Victims of hoaxes never ask themselves the obvious questions. Such as: What causes the climate on Mars? Martians?

The entire hoax began twenty years ago from one guy: NASA scientist James Hansen. Scientific bureaucracies then picked up on it, because it gave them a reason-for-being. An excuse for funding and papers.

All one has to do is read a James Hansen book to realize his quackery. He talks much about the “Venus Effect.” We on Earth, if we don’t mend our ways, will be subject to the “Venus Effect.” Which means, the very hot climate on Venus.

But what causes the climate on Venus? Its proximity to the sun. Period. Duh!

What causes our polar ice caps in the first place? Or the heat at the equator? Is it man? Or not the angle of the planet toward that on which we’re completely dependent, the sun?

Climate is a function of our relationship, and proximity to, the sun. We’re on a round ball hurtling through space, at a fortunate place in the solar system where the sun gives us enough heat, but not too much of it, to survive. But as we rotate and speed along, there will always be changes. Weather variations. Our existence is tenuous. We’re lucky that every day we don’t experience hurricanes and earthquakes.

3.) Immigration Reform. Immigration “reform” has always been about one thing. Lower wages. It’s why “reform” legislation is backed by big money interests in both political parties. Money from Wall Street on the east coast to Silicon Valley on the west, along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. What they want is simple. Lower salaries. Lower wages.

All else is smoke blowing.

Marx on Bureaucracy

The problem with the Left in this country is that it’s not even a real Left. If it were, it would support pipelines and fracking, to enlarge America’s industrial base and its industrial working class. The Left is in fact a thoroughly bourgeois class with bourgeois concerns—like absolute cleanliness; a fear of dirt which manifests itself in the extremisms of the environmental movement. (This includes man-made global warming theory, which is a fantasy of the mind.)

What America’s pseudo-Left cares about is bureaucracy. Its unions for the most part are government employee unions. Karl Marx himself saw bureaucrats as parasites, in that, unlike the industrial proletariat, they create no value in an economy. All the modern Left’s moves are designed to increase the size and power of the bureaucratic state.

Here’s a quote from Marx himself, discussing the administration of Louis Bonaparte:

"... in a country like France, where the executive power commands an army of officials numbering more than half a million individuals and therefore constantly maintains an immense mass of interests and livelihoods in the most absolute dependence; where the state enmeshes, controls, regulates, super­intends and tutors civil society from its most comprehensive mani­festations of life down to its most insignificant stirrings, from its most general modes of being to the private existence of individuals; where through the most extraordinary centralisation this parasitic body acquires a ubiquity, an omniscience, a capacity for accelerated mobility and an elasticity which finds a counterpart only in the helpless dependence, in the loose shapelessness of the actual body politic."
