November Seven-th (Part 2)


WSH_LM9F

hypothesis:

a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation.’

The following is an hypothesis of events, potential, to the outcome of the United States Mid-term elections: November 6, 2018:

As portrayed in the first part of this essay titled: November Seven-th , the global situation is tenuous at best as several nations elect, to government, political parties with right-leaning, conservative, and ultra-conservative, platforms and agenda. The scope and breadth of reason for this current trend are too complicated to clearly express their detail, in just a few lines. One need only be attentive to daily news broadcast to have a reasonable understanding to grasp the validity of general statements made henceforth in this essay.

Leading up to election day, November 6, much is occurring in the United States congressional, senate, and gubernatorial state, election campaigns to amplify, even louder, the differences between democrat, republican, and independent member camps, since the inauguration of President Trump, January, 2017.

White, republican candidates becoming increasing embolden to dog-whistle the race card against their Black-American opponents especially in the Florida and Georgia gubernatorial races. The president’s insistent rallying of his political base with incendiary, contradicting and abusive rhetoric pointed to his political, and mainstream media opponents. To the level as to incite one of his supporters to mail pipe bombs to senior members, past president, news organizations, and business icons associated with the Democratic party or deemed to support a liberal agenda.

Compounding this increasingly flammable and volatile situation, across the United States, is the matter of illegal immigration, security of the southern border, and most recently, a Caravan of Latin American migrants purportedly seven thousand, plus, strong making its way through Mexico, to the United States. The republican party candidates, assisted by FOX NEWS, FOX and Friends, FOX Business, and other editorial programs of FOX, have unanimously, seized upon this issue, inflating the matter to a state of hysteria in the minds of constituents, and viewing audience, respectively; and whom of course, are the same demographic that elected Trump to Office and fill his rally stadiums.

The crescendo to all this bellicose, from all sides of the political spectrum, and those factions that support them, is to be heard most stridently November 7th, with the finality of the voting process sheds light on what comes next.

It can be reasonable to suggest: no matter the final distribution of Republicans to Democrats seats for either the House of Congress, or Senate: there will be significant upset and accusations of wrong doing that renders an outcome of the casting of votes, by they who are dissatisfied with the outcome.

With the mainstream media doing the reporting of the election, their reputation for impartiality already tainted, preceding the election, they will be deemed bias if the Democrats take any majority in the race.

If the Republicans hold to their pre-election majority; Trump given a clear mandate and all to be expected second term at 2020; a conservative majority bench in the Supreme Court; Democrats will essential be rendered non-existent and impudent to rule  by Trump for the foreseeable future.

So either scenario will likely call for recounts, accusations of vote tampering, voter suppression, etc.; and not to forget mention of Russian influence.

No matter: there will definitely be violence of varying order of magnitude.

If violence escalates to an extreme level resulting in high death counts, and damage and loss of property; Trump may be obliged/willing/tempted to institute measures for Marshall Law to be put into effect, possibly, even before newly elected members can be sworn into Office.

This would provide him the perfect opportunity to suspend habeas corpus, rendering him free of constitutional limits. Trump could execute a coupe of the United States, rendering it a dictatorship with little to no resistance by members of his Cabinet, Department of Justice, Congress, Senate, and most critically: the Supreme Court! It would be a pivotal  moment in United States history, and degree to which democratic patriotism truly exists. But, most assuredly, a major civil battle would ensue.

In conclusion, only time’s passage will render a path to history’s making; it can only be hoped that civil disorder, and potential for chaos are condition of last resort.

Free Speech and Religious Liberty


Trump Administration’s Executive Order: `President Trump Signs the Executive Order on Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty‘ .

An Essay written in 2005 anticipated the potential negative outcome for many Americans given the growing, vocal presence of the Conservative Religious Right within the politic of the day.

The premise for the original essay is the offering of an open invitation to move to Canada, to those Americans who were becoming increasingly concerned for the positioning of the political and socially conservative, right-wing, evangelical religious movement to influence the White House and ultimately, the Supreme Court, to amend Constitutional laws in favor of their Bible-driven beliefs.

It would seem that day has finally materialized some twelve years later under the Trump-Pence Administration.

The original essay:

`IN GOD THEY TRUST – NBC with TOM BROKAW  (2005-10-23)

If you are a non-believer that is Christian, gay, democrat or liberal in your views and lastly, AMERICAN, Canada has a lot of vacant land available for occupancy whenever you are ready. And from what I saw and heard on this program, though a brief expose of what is gong on in the good old’ US, I would be looking to pack up and move real soon..

The infusion of evangelical religious fervour and the insidious means they employ to establish their faith amongst the many and subsequently the political pressure this puts on the State, the judicial system, it is cause for not only Americans but also, the rest of the world to be concerned.

The evangelical, conservative Christian movement is organized and determined to put their mark on the majority of America in order to shape the future direction of that country. Their coy manner of insisting that they do not have a political agenda, that they do not impose their theology on others is a ruse. They know what their objectives are and precisely how they expect to achieve those goals. And with their ally in the Oval Office – they are on the road to achieve those goals. With the Congress and eventually the Supreme Court weighted in their favour – the implication of this movement will outlive this administration. It is fearful to see and hear American citizens negating any sense of reason or judgement in exercising their right to vote. Regardless of the political aspirations or abilities of a political candidate be they for the presidency, congress or any other arm of the federal government, as long as that individual holds to their same right wing (though they would not label themselves as such), moral Christian values – that is where their vote will be directed. George W Bush is living proof of that commitment

The fear for the balance of Americans in success of this movement is how it translates to the rest of the world’s religious communities the most obvious of these being the Islamic faith who view the events in the United States as a furtherance of the Christian dominance of the world – at their expense. In addition, as has been brutally illustrated to date, they will sacrifice themselves to prevent this from happening.

The rift these events create within the social fabric of American society will have the affect of undermining the united front that up until the unfolding of these events can only serve the enemies of the US – what is the old adage – United we conquer – divided we fall.

Thank you CANADA!’

The invitation from this Canadian still stands!

HOW CORRUPT CAN IT GET?


 

OFFICIAL LIE IN THE MAKING

To anyone with a concerted interest in international events that shape our daily lives, the revelations brought to public attention from the likes of Julien Assange, Edward Snowden have served to enlighten global citizens to the level of corruption, graft and incompetence of those whom have been elected to represent our interests.  Unfortunately, what has been disclosed most recently by Al Jazeera News only amplifies the seriousness of these revelations.

A journalistic investigation stemming from digital leak of cables originating from the South African intelligence organization gain the world an insight to the political conjuring and coercion of rival leaders within the Middle East and the seemingly purposeful effort by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to thwart the United States – Iran nuclear negotiations with sole effort; to incite an atmosphere of conflict and threat of war.

The Al Jazeera disclosure titled SPY CABLES, clearly shows how Netanyahu in his 2012 address to the United Nations mislead the world on the state of Iran’s nuclear program and stage of uranium enrichment. A position to date, though having been informed otherwise by his own intelligence agency MOSSAD, not to be either accurate nor true, he has not recanted.

What is becoming increasingly evident by the `illegal’ disclosures of all that is hidden by world leaders from `WE THE PEOPLE’ under the umbrella of `national security’ is directly responsible for the death of literally millions of innocent lives, displacement and hardship of countless millions more and, the expenditure of trillions of taxpayer funds. And for what?

These critical, timely exposures communicate leadership of the world in the hands of a few heads-of-state, the United Nations and like bodies, can no longer be taken at their word. The issue of credibility of any statement by ANY government official regardless of nationality, CAN NO LONGER BE TAKEN AS CREDIBLE OR TRUE without due-prudence by an arms-length body. A body presently by default, has fallen to government officials or employees of conscience to leak hidden information i.e., whistleblowers and, by investigative journalist and documentarians. Simply put: those whom nati\oanal political leaders make every effort to find and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. And, stemming from the revelations being brought to light, it is clear why!

The only remaining question: HOW CORRUPT CAN WE LET IT GET, before we find a way to take back our World?

Cause Célèbre


With trenchant words, raising of symbolic clenched fist;
Calling for others of conscience, to readily enlist;
To stir and fight against mounting, shackling flaws;
Of imposed servitude beneath burden of legislated laws.

Laws conspired by those whom have assumed control;
Enacted by electoral minions whose soul they’ve stole;
Their devious, social, global plan long ago contrived;
For dominance of power through wealth, kept, eternally alive.

This fallacy of dominance held, can no longer be sustained;
Increasing numbers of humanity are unwilling to be gamed;
Ancient tools for control employed over centuries past,
Are no longer effective, their time to end has come at last.

Exposure to hidden knowledge has unlocked the shackles;
No longer is humanity willing to be treated as wealth’s chattel;
Society’s undoing will be this 21st century `cause célèbre’;
A period those whom now reign, will come to dread.

This Ancient Cabal Exposed


cabal

As the curtain rises to the second decade of this 21st century play,
Self-appointed actors to an ancient cabal, in want for their position to stay,
Perform scripted roles penned to climax in a whirlwind of chaos’ confusion;
Enthralling humanity, a gullible audience, to applaud infusion of contrived delusion.

Insipid yet insidious are the maneuverings of the elevated few;
Spawned from ancestral prophecy, of ancient hope, to future’s due.
To stir up in the belly of the common man, a militarist fervor;
Sparking a patriotic flame, the call to be the nation’s preserver.

The seeds to disparity were sown in the fertile minds of early men;
Lost to certainty of reason, though desperate for want to defend.
Succumbing to subterfuge of wisdom professed by those of devious goal;
To devalue natural born intuition, relegating it to folly, a fallow field to sow.

As repugnant and cynical this worldview held, may be to others;
This truth herein spoken lies evident, exposed, without faintness of cover.
Though it is to eyes open and, with mind not yet diluted or constrained;
To know the seeds of disparity meant to divide, giving rise to battle, is for powers of the wealthy to be sustained.

Praise of common goodness over evil is demanded for global humanity to survive,
To shed the devious propagandist notion of what it means to be truly alive;
By challenging this unscrupulous cabal, to redeem future generation’s salvation;
Once and forever, delivering the evil-doers to realm of permanent damnation.

CITIZEN FOUR


Watch Citizenfour (2014) Online

CITIZEN FOUR – if you are not familiar with the title be aware it is the recently released documentary filmed directed by Laura Poitras. The documentary details the EDWARD SNOWDEN affair of unselfishly and bravely exposing the massive and secret surveillance programs National Security Agency (NSA) of the United States and its international allies collectively conduct on the global population regardless of national origin.

The significant importance of journalistic reporting on the part of Glenn Greenwald, when the story broke reporting for the Guardian Newspaper of London, England and now, a part of the INTERCEPT, a newly formed, self-financed investigative journalistic group committed to continue reporting the SNOWDEN story and similar types of important international stories.

Fortunately there are true journalist such as Greenwald, Poitras, Jeremy Scahill and, the News agencies supporting them, to bravely pursue the type of News coverage and reporting main-stream media have long supplanted with peaches and cream tripe that is of no importance to anyone save for the gullible naive mass audience willing to blindly ignore what is important to their lives and those of future descendants.

The frightening aspect of watching this documentary: it plays like your typical fictional spy/espionage film but then you realize: THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!

It is for this reason everyone MUST, for the sake of the freedoms democratic nations purport to entitle its citizens, not just now but, for generations to come, watch this documentary and share the link:

What is: Freedom of Speech in the 21st Century


The events transpiring in France as of late, have prompted examination of the concept of freedom of expression/speech. But, what constitutes or differentiates expression premised on a bias or extreme hatred versus critical expression when based on factual evidence in support of such expression.

For an instance if I were to claim:

 Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, a duplicitous, Fascist, genocidal, racist criminal administering an apartheid state for the occupation and slaughter of innocent Palestinian citizens;

…would this be interpreted as `hate speech’ or my freedom to express my opinion based on interpretation of the factual evidence deemed in support of this claim?

Frankly, I think not. It would likely be labelled as `anti-Semitic’, an accusation directed not at the Politician named but, toward the Peoples of Israel; especially they whom either support or fail to intervene in the criminal actions of their government.

Hypocrisy in the domain of freedom of speech is rampant. Majority of western, so-called democratic countries advocate the right of expression, a pillar among those that define such nations however; anyone with the ability to see, hear and discern what is evident in daily News reporting; knows this is just not true.

The only freedom for assembled citizens to express a viewpoint on topical matters are ONLY those supportive of the current government’s policy. When defiance of it; the militarized, policing authority is there to quash such expression. To cite specific examples of this check the video News archived coverage of any major G-Country meetings; or environmental policy legislation such the X-L Pipeline and climate-change.

The attack on investigative journalistic reporting that runs contrary to a ruling governments’ policies is becoming increasingly substantiated as a matter of national security and potentially harmful to the nation in question. In truth, this means: if the citizens really knew what we [government] were up to there would be a considerable revolt if not outright anarchy!

It is no secret except to those whom chose to bury their heads in the proverbial `sand’; the complicit nature of western societal institutions to present only `their’ perspective to global events. Main-stream media, financial and multi-national corporations being at the top of the list, share equally with respective national governments, to promulgate and support what is increasingly becoming a `conspiracy of dominance’ by national governmental administrations, regardless of political strip. The need to control effective communication of narratives touted as `credible’ information, to a less-than-sublime and gullible general populace.

Any commentary contrary to a nation’s national narrative is quickly labelled a `conspiracy’ of some extremist individual or group, anti-government organization or, manifests as charge(s) of jeopardizing national security and pursuance of reporting journalist(s) by department of justice. Relevant and significant examples of this are Julian Assange of Wiki-Leaks, infamous Edward Snowden both deemed `Wanted-Men’ by the United States Department of Justice and, the recent imprisonment of Chelsea Manning for the better part of his life. The irony in each of these cases: majority of the western populace are in support of the actions taken by such individuals for exposing illegal mass surveillance activity by national security agencies of the United States and their coalition of governmental allies around the world.

Investigative Journalist covering and exposing controversial political matters, intrusive to national security of government administrations around the globe are either: mysteriously killed, imprisoned or, actively pursued by federal prosecutors on national security charges.

Fortunately, with the ubiquitous Internet and predacious nature of freelance journalism, a platform for journalistic activism is flourishing much to the chagrin of nation governments and their respective politicians. Independent, alternative News-media channels are reporting unbiased, factual accounts of many nefarious governmental activities. Exposing the hypocrisy that is rife throughout the spectrum of global governance and socio-economic policy makers.

Unfortunately, recognizing the potential influence such independent news-platforms can impose to counter the national narrative as presented by the main-stream media; strengthened by the increased terrorist-security threat agenda touted as an international concern, a communication policy titled Net-Neutrality is gaining increased support. Basically what this implies is the opportunity for some internet service providers (ISP’s) to fundamentally alter the way the internet works and collect money from companies (like Netflix and Facebook) to guarantee their data can continue to reach users unimpeded. Essentially creating a situation where those who are able to pay will receive preferential, faster service and bandwidth. The unfortunate and possible calculated aspect of this policy is recognition that many of the independent news-media websites are donation supported and, as result, be relegated to poorer and slower service from their ISP if not outright closure. The move could be cynically translated as an arms-length way for governments to further control the information-narrative that flows to its citizenry via the Internet.

The facets that would respond to the original question posed and, the title to this essay:

`What is: Freedom of Speech in the 21st Century’

…in fairness to its critical importance to everyone would, should take several more pages than expressed here. However, advocated by the brief examples cited is the necessity for every individual to become more informed and involved with the circumstances that increasingly shape the world we and our descendants occupy. It is essential to go beyond the sound-bites of information offered by the Main-stream media and equally important, to not accept at face-value all that is presented, to question the validity and veracity of its source(s). This is especially relevant given that a majority of News reported originates from one of only five major news corporations which are more concerned with turning a profit than ensuring you as a voting citizen, know the truth to what is going on beyond your horizon.

In conclusion, the perfunctory or dismissive reaction to this essay-commentary by its potential reader, is not the failing of its communication but, the success of governmental-establishment’s objectives to impede and minimize opportunity for true and honest freedom of speech and for the potential demonization and incarceration of those whom advocate for it!
