Fomenting Radical Discontent

On this week’s episode of On Contact, Chris Hedges is joined by journalists Abby Martin and Ben Norton to discuss the declassified U.S. intelligence report on Russia’s alleged “influence campaign” on the U.S. presidential election. They explore the allegations and why a large portion of the report is dedicated to RT America’s programming. RT correspondent Anya Parampil details the charges made in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence report.

Trump is probably the best exposure of what the mainstream Corporocracy. Also the best stooge to take the heat and attention away from the machinations of Big Brother and Comrade Napoleon. Like, is Emmanuel Goldstein on Foxfield Farm or is Snowball in Eastasia, how much fiction gets injected into reality? Real fiction isn't actually lies but allegory of reality.

As to his own history, he's been dealing with the Clinton on a business to business relationship. Hillary could have prosecuted him and or any of his accomplices but didn't. She as a deputized officer of the court and even a prosecutor had the duty to do that. If the great and mighty They want to play that way, see if we can get a prosecutor anywhere in america who will prosecute HER as an accomplice to Trump.

That's the official way. Meanwhile, break out the Revolution. We've got a neat little supply of resistance tactics from, ironically, the RealPolitik taught to, say, the French and other occupied nations under the Hitler Regime, how-to books and a shrinking pool of actual Resistance Workers from that war.

You remember the book The Anarchist Cookbook? William Powell wrote a few "recipes" that were somewhat incomplete. Like the one for mercury fulminate. Which you can buy at hardware stores. But making it is tricky, and the part he omitted, perhaps deliberately, is the smelly greenish gray smoke that emanates while the mercury is fulminating (hence the name) is itself deadly poison.

Some people say the book was to kill off putative anarchists.

With all the pure lies brought forth by every official source, it seems the MiniTru has won, and we'll not find out which is truth and which is not.

So what I'm going to do, I'm going to try getting the permission of two universities to publish Beginning Cherokee and Reading and Writing the Lakota Language as an e-book for the Kolas in the Iron Box. Since the Indian Rebellion is in full swing but somehow taken out of the news cycle (for now) and both Donald Clinton and Hillary Trump were really hand in hand on the scheme to take away Indian Sovereignty and educational and religious rights in prisons. Diluted them, or so they thought. In Colorado there are allowed only 20 Natives at any Sweat Lodge gathering, with the guards pointing directional microphones at them. There might be hundreds of brothers on any unit, and only 20 at a time allowed to have access to a basic part of our cultural being.

I had to break this into two segments, but here's the upshot of it: The Native Revival or Indian Rebellion or whatever names put to it, is getting stronger and, despite the mainstream media and the declassified summary of a classified report distinctly mentioning the Standing Rock standoff supporters as "Kremlin tools"... and both candidates hate us... real damn bad... The Trump dude wrote and said in advance what he intended to do to us,

In spite of that or because of that, we're a huge lightning rod BUT we are getting all kinds of good press. Maybe not in the Country Club media outlets. CNN made a point (5000 words worth) of stating that "some" Natives don't want the Standing Rock protest.

Like all natives are in complete agreement on every detail. They just don't have a clue on what the reality of Native politics is about.

Typical Government mentality there. They know that you can find a malcontent or maybe a few percentage points who disagree. Uncle Tom or Good Indians or whatever... focus on that group and magnify their disagreement into a full-scale rebellion within the ranks. At least at a perceptual level. Which, in the News Cycle... that's all the story. The same Madison Avenue veterans have a lot to do with how corporate news gets played. The same ones who sell us minor differences between Coke and Pepsi or McDonalds vs Burger King. All the brand parties and political parties have the same board of directors, ultimately, and the same attorneys and advertising agents.
