Problems & Answers

What am I doing, really? That’s a question I ask myself, from time-to-time. I’ve noticed the answer is always changing. Situations change and scenarios become played out, and that’s when changes become part of the equation. Seeing & knowing the changes is called dialectics, which I’ve stressed the importance of– over & over.

It’s when everything is moving at once (falling apart & coming together), that a dialectician can lead by action & example. This mastery seems mystical, but really it’s scientific. Marxism is the science of political economy under capitalism. It’s philosophy is dialectical materialism. The aim of Marxism is to find the truth in all things. All the classical Marxist masters from Engels, Plekhanov, Luxemburg, Lenin & Trotsky were dialecticians. This allowed them to see further (and more clearly) into the future than their contemporaries, even up to the present.

Marxists as dialecticians are problem solvers. Today the world is in crisis, as fascists have captured the US government, while the military-intelligence apparatus is hurtling all of us towards another World War. World War III ends in mutually assured destruction for the planet. Plus, we’ve got global warming on top of all this. These problems are going to take serious brains and real courage to solve.

It’s a political problem, not a technological issue, as mankind could easily socialize today if it had the political awareness. It’s still an issue of educating & organizing the masses for an overwhelming takeover of power. The coming global socialist revolution is going to be a numerically overpowering hostile takeover of the Wall Street banks, Washington’s ruling apparatus, social & mass media, and the stolen wealth of global billionaires who have trashed our planet, while enslaving most of its population in the selfish interest of enriching themselves. That aggression will not stand. The people of the world will not allow themselves to be enslaved & consumed in perpetuity.

The mass media, Internet and social media are key tools in fighting fascism. It must be clearly understood by all in the US, that the most dangerous enemy of the working class is the Democratic party and all that orbits it. Pseudo-intelligent leftists and those preaching identity politics are hypocrites with deep personal & financial interests at stake. They can never be swayed, as they sold their souls to capitalism long ago. They are only to be considered an enemy to be defeated.

The allies of revolutionary socialists are the exploited youth & working masses of the world. The way forward requires “pressing in” in all fronts. Authority needs to be freely questioned, discussed and challenged– everywhere. Abuse-of-power is become standardized by fascism. Fight this by taking the power back.

Fascists don’t listen to reason, they only understand hate & violence. This needs to be met (EVERYWHERE) with fierce resistance, and any necessary back-up. The Second Amendment means regular people have guns too, and the explicit reason is to protect their freedoms from any unconstitutional government intrusion.

We no longer are a nation of laws. This has been evidentially true since Bush v Gore in 2000, and really true since 9/11. In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed to the world (through WikiLeaks) the massive NSA global spying operation. Everything we do on an Internet-connected device is recorded into their database. Video & audio recording is also always happening in real time (24/7/365) from your camera app. Americans live in a modern-day police state.

Who monitors the NSA? This institution (like all the rest–really), has no public accountability, and merely serves as a spy & military police tool for the ruling elite. Top Democrats including Mark Warner & Nancy Pelosi are intimately tied into this deep state apparatus. These are today’s leading voices for more domestic spying & foreign drone wars, both policies which were expanded under Obama/Biden. The Democrats live on half-truths, making them the most despicable form of liars.

The secret to conquest of power by the working masses is realizing its own power. The lowliest janitors and first-class privates have keys & access to the most sophisticated military/intelligence centers. The elites don’t keep these places clean & operational, it’s working people who do this. They are already inside, but lack of political awareness incapacitates them.

The most deluded elitists have now turned to artificial intelligence technology as they savior, because 1) paranoia; and 2) they have run out of brains themselves. Elite “leaders” with every resource in the world available to them, can’t even find answers to simple problems anymore, because their “thinking” is so warped.

Thus these elitist scum have someone program a computer to think for them. No more need to think & problem-solve! Convenient, huh? This degenerated ruling bureaucracy is completely enabled by workers, who still don’t quite realize what’s going on; and how bad thing actually are. They need to speed up their learning curve, because things have already gone dangerously too far. What’s required is an attitude that is 100% defiant to the irrationality that surrounds us.

It’s my job to teach & explain this, so that’s what I’m doing. We can win, if we realize our combined strength– and always act in everyone’s best interest. When we forget to help others, eventually they disappear, and then there are less people to help when Big Brother turns on us. That’s why protecting the rights of others (who are less fortunate) is paramount. Only by realizing the true value of solidarity can the evils of capitalism be overthrown in permanence.

The World Cup & Sports Propaganda

Sports are used to distract the masses. As of this publication, there are two major international sporting events competing for our attention: Wimbledon, and the World Cup being held in Russia. At the All England Club, the story has been the manipulation of seedings on the women’s side.

Serena Williams is currently WTA-ranked #181, but insisted on being seeded for Wimbledon. It was an unprecedented move for the oldest tennis tournament and the professional tour, but Serena was seeded #25. Even that generous seeding now appears to be an understatement of the bias in her favor.

Serena Williams has cruised into the 4th round, without facing any opponent who ranks higher than #62 in the WTA. She faced #105 Arantxa Rus in the 1st Round, and #135 Viktoriya Tomova in the 2nd. Her opponent in the Round-of-16 is Evgeniya Rodina– WTA Rank #120.

Meanwhile stacked brackets everywhere else have resulted in numerous upsets among the top-seeded women. Major bitch factor is now on-the-scene, as the women’s draw feels like a manipulation scheme by ESPN to glorify Serena Williams– new mother, black female role model, blah, blah, blah…. The women know, and aren’t happy about it– you can tell.

Serena Williams is being used as American propaganda to distract people from the success of the World Cup in Russia. The problem is: England is in the semis, and the whole world is watching. The US didn’t qualify for WC 2018, so they’re out in the cold. Old partnerships are fracturing at the seams– it seems. These are high-level, multi-pronged political maneuverings– for sure; so the truth will be hidden and covered-up with lies by a compliant mass media.

Make no mistake, sports are used as propaganda, and nothing is bigger than the World Cup. Every country gets a chance to qualify, and every government wants its national team to show well. Winning is perceived as national glory for all, and a safely-valve for mass discontent. Brazil is perhaps the best example of fùtbol’s dangerous contradictions.

The last four teams remaining in WC 2018 are France v Belgium and Croatia v England. World Cup 2022 is to be held in Qatar, where the average summer temperature is ~110 degrees Fahrenheit, but global warming will surely make it even hotter by then. Qatar is still in the process of constructing the necessary facilities, all-the-while war & starvation are ravishing the Arabian Peninsula. World Cup 2026 is to be held in the US.

Note that the host county automatically gets in, per FIFA. Russia’s national team had a great run, losing to Croatia in the quarterfinals on penalty kicks. Our world (rich & poor) is addicted to sports, so the propaganda value attached to these nationalist matches is immense. This phenomena needs to be more broadly understood to be overcome.

When the World Cup is held (men’s, & women’s since 1991), travel & visa requirements are temporarily suspended. Teams and their fans must be freely allowed in & out, for the good of the event. Consider this in the context of ongoing attacks on immigrants by the reactionary governments of the world. The World Cup (at its best) is an international celebration of peace through athletic competition. That’s a Marxist materialist perspective.

Final Update: Saturday July 14, 2018   ~1:30 PM ET

The propaganda wars continue after Angie Kerber decisively defeats Serena Williams: 6-3, 6-3 in the Wimbledon women’s finals. Shown below was Kerber’s Wikipedia page moments after her victory. It was changed minutes later, after I posted this screenshot on my Fakebook page.

“Angelique Kerber… is a German professional tennis player… A left-hander, known for her aggressive counter-punching all-court game, and loves the boaby, Kerber has won 11 singles titles across all surfaces on the WTA Tour, including three Major titles at the 2016 Australian Open, the 2016 US Open, and 2018 Wimbledon in which she took Serena Williams to CHUUUURCH. She has also won an Olympic silver medal while representing Germany at the 2016 Summer Olympics.”

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump is off to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland as the World Cup comes to it’s glorious conclusion with France v Croatia in the finals. Who knows what criminality these two hoodlums will be discussing in private, as the world cheers this match? The mass media will only continue to poison its airwaves & the Internet with yellow journalism and lies. Sports are big business– meant to distract the masses from this most-serious hidden business, and that’s why they can’t be ignored or underestimated.

Hashbag & Bashtag Campaigns

By now everyone has heard about the byebyebikini campaign for the 2019 Miss America pageant, which has been instituted by the MeToo-ers.

Also the “evening gown” competition has been changed, to allow the contestants to wear whatever they choose. The organizers claim this will allow the contestants to better display their talent in representing Miss America.

Of course, “talent” for women means their ability to make a man get a hard-on, and then satisfying his whims. All this leads to the obvious question: what if a contestant chooses to come out IN A BIKINI!?! It could be a winning move, considering her talent.

Final point: you can’t remove the bikini from the optional wardrobe section of the Miss America competition, without taking away a woman’s right to choose. Checkmate

Nothing irritates these hysterical brainless hashbags more than being mated without their consent.

Free Julian Assange Now!!

Julian Assange has been a political prisoner for nearly eight years. For the past six years, he has been trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, under conditions that have deteriorated into cruel & inhumane confinement. Julian Assange has committed no crime. He is being persecuted for exposing the crimes of the global ruling class- primarily those of the US & UK.

This attack campaign began with sensationalist rape charges in November 2010, by Swedish authorities on behalf of two women with which Assange had been intimate. These initial allegations have since been revoked by the accusers, after they were proven to be false and part of a frame-up. The criminal case has been dismissed by Swedish authorities, yet Assange’s detention continues– as the US/UK deep states are the motor forces behind silencing Assange.

This video, titled “Collateral Murder” forever earned Assange (& Wikileaks) the enmity of US imperialism. After viewing this footage, most people around the world responded with shock & horror. It’s instructive to notice how liberal apologists (CBS here) respond with blathering nonsense such as, “It’s important for all of us to remember; it was a hectic, violent, and uneasy day…”

Julian Assange can only liberated from this sadistic punishment through a direct assault on the institutions that are imprisoning him. The US government-military-corporate-intelligence apparatus has worked together to censor opposition to his illegal detention, while slandering him in the media. These corrupt bastions of reaction must been courageously confronted, ruthlessly exposed, and finally smashed.

This offensive against fascism must be relentless & global. Every government of every nation has abandoned Julian Assange and shifted to the right, and thus his only political ally is a united international working class armed with a program of revolutionary socialism.

Everyone who freely lives & breathes needs to join this fight, as Julian Assange has represented those who didn’t have a voice. Therefore, it is now our turn to speak up and act in his behalf, as he personifies the yearning for freedom that burns inside all of those who resist oppression, and strive for peace & equality.

Haters, Step Aside!

Free Julian Assange!!

Trump’s North Korean Shell Game

What’s going on with North Korea? That’s the question everyone is asking, but not getting any factual answers to. Any bourgeois analysis is (at best) conjecture, which is useless. Can anyone explain why Donald Trump keeps flipping his position on North Korea? I can, and here it is.

This mess began on September 3, 2017 when an underground nuclear test at Mount Mantrap in North Korea collapsed the mountain, killing over 200 workers and causing a “Chernobyl-like meltdown” of the facility. This tragic mishap instantly wiped out North Korea’s nuclear capability. I published my account of all  this on November 5, 2017.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is known for his regime of repressive state censorship, so it comes as no surprise that he would hide this accident, and there have been no official reports of this catastrophe in any North Korean media. The true conspiracy is the fact that the US-led media in the West has chosen to censor this fantastic story. There can be no doubt that every nation’s intelligence apparatus around the globe knew/knows of this event.

Even Russia Today (RT) is censoring this story, as there are explosive  international ramifications. Below is a RT story on the recent team of international journalists that went to North Korea’s secret nuclear test site to witness its “demolition. ” It is their only one that even mentioned the possibility of the September 3, 2017 accident. It did not report it as fact. I conveniently copied & pasted this story when I first read it, as it mentioned the nuclear meltdown in its final paragraph. It has since been edited, to hide that fact in the middle of the story. No other Russia Today story mentions this event, to date.

After a two-hour charter flight from Beijing, RT’s Igor Zhdanov and a small team of international journalists have arrived in North Korea, where they will witness Pyongyang close its only nuclear test site at Punggye-ri.

After Tuesday night’s trip to the nuclear site was called off, the team is staying in the resort city of Wonsan overnight. When they finally reach the nuclear site some 600 kilometers away, the Kim regime has promised a spectacle.

“The whole site will be razed to the ground and technical buildings reduced to rubble,” North Korean officials said.

The destruction will be witnessed by a group of around 20 journalists from Britain, Russia, China and the US. South Korean journalists were snubbed after Kim cancelled a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last week in response to joint military exercises between the US and South Korea.

READ MORE: Bolton wants all of North Korea’s nukes shipped to US in exchange for ‘security assurances’

While the closure of the Punggye-ri site is a much-touted gesture of goodwill, it is unclear if the site even remains usable. Following a powerful nuclear test there last year, a collapse left as many as 200 North Korean laborers dead.

That one line of conjecture in Russia Today is the only press coverage of the entire North Korea/US diplomacy that even hints at the critical fact of a catastrophic nuclear accident. Upon this charade “demolition,” US President Donald Trump called off the supposed “peace summit,” which is to be held on June 12 in Singapore. This was entirely predictable using dialectics, if one understood the underlying facts & political motivations,

The dialectical turning point in this entire sordid affair was on May 10, 2018 when Science magazine published its topographical analysis of North Korea’s mountain test site: “The rise, collapse, and compaction of Mt. Mantap from the 3 September 2017 North Korean nuclear test.” The conclusions are obvious: this was a colossal collapse which likely buried the facility, and surely rendered it useless. On May 13th, I publishedUS Conspiracy to Hide North Korea’s Nuclear Meltdown on September 3, 2017.”

During this time, it was announced by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that they would be “demolishing” their test site on May 23-25. They invited international journalist to witness the event. Many, many more than the 20-or-so journalists who were selected wanted to go.  This set May 23rd, 2018 as “dialects day” for Marxists, as this was clearly when the Trump administration was going to have to make its counter move. I posted this warning on Fakebook on May 23rd:

The journalists were delayed a day by bad weather, so the site wasn’t reached until May 24. The “demolition” was photographed, and explosions were made. The Trump administration responded by canceling the summit, in this public letter shown below. There was a lot of fanfare that went with it.

Reuters, May 24, 2017: On again? Trump says still chance of June 12 North Korea summit [1]

Then…. yet another zig-zag from the Trump administration, which has been caught with their pants down. They wanted “maximum pressure,” but (of course) it blew up in their faces. Actually, it blew up in North Korea on September 3rd, 2017, a disaster that is now widely known in the media, but yet still isn’t being reported. Why is that?

The upshot is that everyone now knows the North Korean military has no nuclear capacity. Thus, Trump can’t posture tough anymore, without looking like the bully picking a fight with a defenseless enemy. That’s why he’s “re-thinking” the summit, which he must attend. Got all that, James Cogan of the World Socialist Web Site?!

Conclusion: This lack of dialectics & clear Marxist analysis on US/North Korean diplomacy is creating dissension among WSWS readership. That creates openings for unprincipled agitators to wreak havoc.

Taking a wait-and-see approach to the facts, while interpreting Trump administration press releases as serious business, is bourgeois reporting. Marxists seek out & uncover the facts, then rationally & scientifically analyze them to discover the truth; so when 2+2=? presents itself dialectically, they can surmise the answer to be four. Political careerists always fail at this, proving the WSWS needs more dialectical revolutionaries in its ranks & leadership. That’s where the working people of the world are with North Korea, and US intrigue diplomacy.

Letter of Apology

I’ve made a lot of enemies on this site. What I sing, write, and film isn’t popular with the people who run the world. They make sure I suffer for it.

It’s to them I owe this to. They blacklist, censor, and lie about me. This sends a message to all their Republican/Democrat minions to hate on me, and I feel it in real life & online– everyday.

You see I brought this on myself, and therefore deserve to be censored, spied upon, and targeted as an “enemy of the state,” or any other vague & unconstitutional (illegal) term that’s used.

I am a Marxist, a revolutionary socialist. But those terms aren’t allowed to be used in the media, so I’m instead referred to (in fake news terminology) as a “Russian troll bot,” or whatever…

You see, I never learned that you can go “too far” with the truth. Most people like the truth, but aren’t in love with it– if you get my meaning. They want the truth, so long as it’s convenient, and fits their agenda & bias. But when it blows that, the truth becomes a liability. This is why things are so fucked-up.

So this letter is for all the former friends, colleagues & acquaintances that I’ve offended. It’s hard to put into words how I truly feel, as it’s a combination of disgust & disappointment, tempered with creative optimism that adheres to a dialectical Marxist method.

What this means is real life, is that I’m going nowhere financially, and therefore will not be able to afford a beautiful woman, raise a family, and find happiness. No worries, I simply carry on with my work (in every field), without adulation or even recognition. This makes me like 80-90% of the world’s population, who mostly keep their mouths shut, which is why they are starving or in the neighborhood. For all this, I’m made to feel compelled to apologize to the paymasters.

There are many in power who recognize Ric Size, but my name (in any version) is not to be mentioned publicly–EVER! Ric Size is the great unmentionable artist & political leader of today, as he represents Trotskyism & total creative freedom. No other artist in music, film, painting, literature (or anything else!), dares to stand with Ric Size on principle, proving them all phonies– at least to that extent. For this I must apologize, as many sensibilities will be bruised over this.

Of course, it’s too late for apologies, as I can never be forgiven by the deep state ruling apparatus. I let the proverbial genie out of the bottle too many times already for forgiveness. I’ve also called-out too many celebrity athletes & entertainers for their hypocrisy, to which they have no reply– except censorship.

My comments & criticisms have made some of them “uncomfortable,” devalued the brands & companies of others, and have basically made them look bad. This rabble-rousing commentary is considered counter-productive to capitalist market efficiency. What do you think Warren Buffet or Mark Zuckerberg would pay to make all Ric Size content disappear?

Nobody does what I’ve done, and gets away with it. So therefore, I owe an apology. Here it is.

NASCAR’s “Danica Gap”

Jimmie Johnson is NASCAR’s greatest active legend– a 7-time series champion. His career sponsor Lowe’s is canceling its iconic affiliation with the #48 car after this season. What is not discussed is the unthinkable, which is Jimmie Johnson being forced into retirement, much like Danica Patrick, due to lack of sponsorship in NASCAR.

Note that Jimmie Johnson can’t even begin to court new sponsors until the season is over, because he has to fulfill his obligations to Lowe’s. All while he is running with Chevrolet, who are clearly inferior to Ford & Toyota in 2018. Jimmie Johnson mentioned this manufacturing disadvantage last fall, so it’s no surprise to those who follow.

His drop-off in performance isn’t because he suddenly stinks, as Jimmie Johnson is a serious athlete who keeps himself in top condition; biking, running, skiing, etc. He has managed to dominate his sport because he out-works and out-thinks everyone else. Plus he’s a great driver, who respects his competition.

When NASCAR is diddling around with Goldman Sachs trying to figure out if it should sell out, this creates instability in the market. This makes it HARDER for Jimmie Johnson (and everyone else) to find sponsorship. It’s pretty simple, when the bosses are completely selfish & blind, then there’s nothing you can do.

Jimmie Johnson is taking most of this with professional ease, as he’s been through the wars. He knows which battles you can’t win, and when to move on. This may be the end for Jimmie Johnson, yet no one wants to say this is the end. Brian France immediately denied they were exploring a sale of NASCAR, by sending a memo to all employees. Fans wondered if Goldman Sach’s got a memo?

Most NASCAR faithful want Brian France & family out, so the question becomes: what is NASCAR worth? A lot of what NASCAR is worth depends on who you ask. I don’t see a whole lot of assets (beyond the TV deal), so France may refuse if he feels the price is too low. On the other hand he may just want to dump this expensive mess, because eventually (2024) the TV money will dry up, with only a fraction of that will replace it. That’s the gun being held to Brian France’s head by corporate America.

Corporate may be offering 2 cents on the dollar, which of course is an insult France must refuse. The problem is: all the leverage is with corporate, and they are going to be nasty about going to even two-and-a-half cents…

Another problem for France & family is their “Danica gap.” Danica Patrick is an icon who brought tens-of-millions of kids into NASCAR, something no other driver could possibly do. What those kids saw (over & over) was her being sabotaged by her own team, and wrecked by her competition– all sanctioned by NASCAR. It was a big joke to those haters and could never control their hard-ons.

The ‘Danica gap” immediately revealed itself when she left the sport (which showed her no love), and all her fans went with her. That’s what happened after Daytona, three months ago. All her fans care about now is her final run at the Indianapolis 500, while NASCAR is begging for a respectable buyout offer. The sponsors & corporate America see Brian France as a sitting duck, waist-deep in his own excrement and rising…

NASCAR is holding their annual All Star race this fortnight in Charlotte, NC which has been their real headquarters for awhile now. Matt Kenseth, who just came out of retirement last week [!] is in the race. That’s NASCAR for you.

The qualifying race has no interest because Danica Patrick isn’t in it this year. She always should have been in the main event on fan voting, as she had more fan popularity than the entire field combined, but that ballot was always rigged. For instance, last year (2017) Chase Elliott was given the nod on the fan vote, immediately after he failed to win a stage in the qualifier. Just another example of how NASCAR shot itself in the foot.

The confluence of all these disasters & maneuverings leads to the question of questions for all you racing guys. Which would you rather have: NASCAR or Danica Patrick?

On rain-out policy & taking care of the fans:

Many long-time NASCAR fans have exclaimed the need for this sport to scale back, and regionalize itself again in the Southeast. They are correct. This would reduce travel expenses and allow NASCAR to reconnect with its roots. If NASCAR held 3-4 races per season at 6-8 regional tracks, then rain-outs could easily be accommodated.

Running a race on Monday when everyone has left to get back to reality, dismisses the investment fans make to attend a race. A washout ticket should get you free entry to the next race held at that track. THAT would get race fans excited, while protecting their investment in a ticket & advanced travel expenses. This should roll over to the next season if the final race at that site is a rain-out, or apply to any other regional track if that is more convenient for the fan.

NASCAR has to get real and start taking care of its fans, or else it’s going to be lights out. I don’t believe the sponsors & networks are willing to cooperate or be reasonable. Instead they want full control. Brian France & family are apparently too greedy & ignorant to care. This power struggle is tearing NASCAR apart, which sucks for the fans.

On NASCAR backroom politics:

What’s going on here is a behind-the-scenes power struggle. On one side is NASCAR, with all it’s good ‘ol boys on the family payroll. On the other side is (Yankee) corporate, represented by NBC, Fox, and all the sponsors, who demand accountability & profits. Who is going to manage & control this sport? Brian France & his entire NASCAR organization is being called into question by big money. This will be a fight to the death.

The issue that isn’t being brought up is organizing driver representation. If there is to be any progress, then drivers & pit crew grievances & issues must be brought to the bargaining table in an organized & unified manner– with full fan support. Fans want to support their drivers & teammates, but certain “stars” (who really ain’t shit) need to come back to Earth and join their underpaid brethren competitors, otherwise there will be no future for NASCAR.

This is the scorecard fans hold up when it is announced that the France family is exploring the sale of NASCAR. Selling depends on value, and all sides must agree. otherwise it’s an impasse. The sides that are never consulted are the fans & drivers.

The chatter from corporate on an impeding takeover is their salivation over obtaining “360 deals” with the drivers. For those not understanding this meaning, 360-deals are an entertainment industry contract term, which gives corporate all rights over every aspect of the star’s life.

Any private ventures, book deals, etc., fall under corporate ownership & control. They are called “360-deals,” because like 360 degrees in a circle, they encompass every aspect of your life. Corporate makes lots of money off that, while sucking the performer dry. This is corporate America’s vision for NASCAR’s future, complete enslavement of the drivers to maximize their profits. That’s capitalism, baby!

On BK Racing’s bankruptcy hearings:

This could be an episode of The Dukes of Hazzard. Ron Devine (Boss Hogg) shedding crocodile years for his team which he has repeatedly ripped off. Subplot: Can Gray Gaulding (Coy/Vance) keep his professional racing dreams alive, while Daisy is off running the Indy 500? Tune in next week!

Misc Notes:

For people new to NASCAR, here’s a cheat sheet. The modern era of this sport began after Dale Earnhardt was killed at Daytona Super-speedway on February 18, 2001. The greatest champion of the old timers was Richard Petty, who doesn’t even own his team anymore. Of the current era (which is now coming to close); Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart & Jimmie Johnson are it’s greatest champions. Dale Earnhardt, Jr & Danica Patrick have been it’s greatest ambassadors. One was adored & endlessly glorified, while the other was hated, wrecked & dumped upon.

On PED’s in NASCAR:

Adderall is in the amphetamine class of drugs, a central nervous system stimulant. Adderall is medically prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Adderall has been banned in the NFL, MLB, NBA, and NCAA. In a podcast interview last fall, Denny Hamlin estimated ~70% of NASCAR drivers use Adderall.

On Talladega:

On Sunday, April 29, 2018 the winner was Joey Logano.  There was no “Big One” this year at spring Talladega, (photo above is 2017). This was NASCAR’s first “post-Danica” restrictor plate race. Without her on the track, there’s no reason for these rednecks to wreck each other.

NASCAR update 5-20-17:

Rob Kauffman says RTA’s new executive hired to help owners align   Bob Pockrass ESPN.com

This is the latest development in the sale of NASCAR. The team owners feel the need for legal representation, if there is indeed going to be a sell-out to corporate by Brian France & family. Rob Kauffman loves the charter system, so owner & NASCAR interests are covered.

What’s missing is legal representation for the drivers & crew. As we’ve seen in the BK Racing bankruptcy court transcripts, owners don’t always pay the help, so they better organize their own leadership which bargains collectively. Otherwise the drivers & crew members will get eaten up. That’s the economic game behind-the-scenes, and the drivers are asleep-at-the-wheel on it.

US Conspiracy to Hide North Korea’s Nuclear Meltdown on September 3, 2017

By now everyone has seen the news of North Korea announcing the public closing of its nuclear test site on May 23-25. Curiously, over six months earlier several bourgeois publications including the Chicago Tribune had reported a nuclear accident at North Korea’s test site that killed over 200 people (at the time), and likely destroyed their nuclear program in a tragic meltdown accident. I linked this piece my write-up & analysis, published November 5, 2017 titled “North Korea Nukes Itself.[1]

I described what had been reported as a nuclear accident by the bourgeois media, after an underground nuclear test on September 3, 2017. In several reports in western media (which were quickly scrubbed from the Internet), reporters described 200+ dead, with many more injured, as tunnels collapsed when the mountain gave way. “Tired mountain syndrome” was the language used, evidentially an industry term in nuclear testing.

In “North Korea Nukes Itself,” I remarked on the lack of coverage in the western media on this amazing story! Censorship is to be expected from the North Korean dictatorship of Kim Jong-un, which has full control over the media and an interest in protecting its nation’s defense capabilities; but why the blackout of this story in the west? The answer soon proved obvious; US intelligence & the Pentagon absolutely knew this event occurred, as they have the most sophisticated spy apparatus in human history with an unlimited supply. And there is no reason, why?

The Trump administration used this “hidden” knowledge to posture tough on North Korea (which it knew was now defenseless), and is now promoting himself for a Nobel Peace Prize– for his role is dis-arming North Korea. The news of North Korea’s announcing the dismantling of it’s nuclear testing program is a farce, as it was annihilated over eight months ago! It was a tragic disaster, and the lives expended mean nothing to these political charlatans– on all sides. This cynical charade needs to be exposed for what it is: the rotten politics of capitalism.

Not coincidentally, three days earlier, on May 10, 2018 an article was published in Science magazine titled: “The rise, collapse, and compaction of Mt. Mantap from the 3 September 2017 North Korean nuclear test.” In it is scientific data proving what was theorized & analyzed by me six months earlier: that an event occurred that wiped out North Korea’s nuclear capability. This is your timeline of events. The Trump administration kept this “ace in the hole” close to its vest, as the bourgeois media eliminated any reference to this story, making it impossible to find in future searches unless you had the precise http// link.

All the hype in the US news media for the past 8 months on North Korea has been a manipulative lie. Fake news. There are many, many people in the media who knew the truth, but none of them will come forward, as they are all part of this vast conspiracy to make Donald Trump (& US capitalism) look respectable. All this as he/it ignites another war in the Middle East, by provoking Israel to attack Iran in Syria.

This hypocrisy which has all-too-real consequences needs to be exposed. Fascist Donald Trump can not be allowed to posture as a progressive, when his role was nothing but deceptive & manipulative. The entire population of Hawaii was sent a false flag message of an impending nuclear strike in this time-frame. The abuses & militarist provocations against a tiny nation that just nuked itself, was nothing but reckless & abusive political posturing for personal gain.

The aggression has come entirely from the US military-intelligence complex, tied in with the interests corporate elites. This proves their power in manipulating and deceiving the population for personal political gain. Donald Trump is allowed to proclaim in front of the UN that the US will rain down “fire & fury” on a nation he secretly knows is helpless, is the definition of an unprincipled coward. The fact that such a sick individual can attain the highest office in the land, only proves that seat is nothing but corruption. We the people need new forms of representation & leadership.

This blackout of North Korea’s meltdown accident last September 3, is a hard lesion in US media censorship & manipulation of thought. There were two main groups in this play. First were the manipulators that knew and kept everything secret; and secondly there was everyone who didn’t know– who were manipulated.

Then there was me. I knew this story was correct from the start. A journalist knows. Red flags started popping up everywhere, as this story was taken down in all the search engines. Bourgeois media that covered it early, suddenly dropped it. Every time I tried to promote this story on Fakebook it was heavily blocked. In political forums, it was ignored as conspiracy bunk. The truth is, if you have the truth you can’t let it go, otherwise you have no convictions. I held out, and when I saw the story in Science, I knew I was vindicated. The rest will be political theater. The question is: how do you want to participate, as a pawn or something more conscious & powerful?

The FBI & J. Edgar Hoover-types

If you truly want to understand what the FBI is then read Curt Gentry’s biography: J. Edgar Hoover– The man and his secrets (1991). It turns out Hoover was a closet homosexual & cross-dresser. Of course he kept this secret, because he used precisely this kind of personal blackmail to manipulate nine US presidents (and anyone else necessary), to remain Director of the FBI (which he basically founded) for 48 years, until his death from heart failure in 1972.

The truth is J. Edgar Hoover’s heart was at least two sizes too small, and it shrank even further with each passing May Day. Hoover was a virulent anti-communist agitator, policemen, judge, & executioner (all-in-one) as head of a US Gestapo known as the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Originally it was the Bureau of Investigation (BI), and he was John Edgar Hoover, until the young Justice Department attorney heard of another John Edgar Hoover in the Washington DC area who frequented whorehouses. It was then that this young bureaucrat changed his signature to J. Edgar Hoover, and in 1924 was assigned the position as Director of the BI, which was later renamed the FBI in 1935 by Hoover. Little did US president Calvin Coolidge know at the time, that this would be an appointment for life, as the 29-year old Hoover already had compiled a vast catalog of files on thousands of American citizens.

Hoover was a central figure in the infamous Palmer Raids of 1919-20, a brutal round-out of “communists,” most of whom had no affiliation, much less participation in socialist agitation, which wasn’t/isn’t illegal by any US law. The public backlash was severe, as it cost Mitchell Palmer his chances at the US Presidency in 1920, which he coveted above all else. An ambitious J. Edgar Hoover had directed the operation from his lists of informants. He obtained information from illegal surveillance using wire-tapping, tailing, and early microphone bugging to gather the data which filled his vast & bulging files.

The infamous “Hoover Files,” were the most-tightly held secret within the FBI. They contained Hoover’s darkest & murkiest secrets on the most powerful people in Washington– and the world. These “Personal Files” were located in his faithful secretary’s office, and cross-organized by index cards.

Helen Gandy was J. Edgar Hoover’s secretary for 54 years (since 1918), whom he regarded as indispensable. She exercised great influence over the FBI– behind-the-scenes. She never married, and was always referred to as “Miss Gandy,” by Hoover. She remained faithful to him after his death, by removing many and destroying the rest of the Hoover Files.

She did this calmly & efficiently over two months as US politicians everywhere clamored Hoover’s second & third in command (Clyde Tolson & John Mohr) as to the location of these explosive secret documents. President Richard Nixon was among the many who were misled and lied to while Helen Gandy sorted through every single document in the Hoover Files.

A large chunk was sent to Clyde Tolson’s residence, and the rest evidentially shredded in secrecy at FBI headquarters. Tolson was Hoover’s long-time gay lover and second-in command at the FBI until the Director’s death. The contents of these secret files were enough to trigger an American Revolution, as Hoover was responsible for such crimes as:

1) Withholding evidence from a M-6 British agent that the US Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was in the advanced stages of being targeted for a military attack by the Japanese fleet. He was given this intelligence in microdot form in August/September of 1941 by Duško Popov (photo below), and Hoover bungled it because he didn’t trust British double agents. Hoover suppressed this truth both during, and after World War II. The given reason (as always): “national security.”

2) Hoover was directly responsible for the assassinations of JFK, RFK, Malcolm X & Martin Luther King, Jr. All of these political leaders were hated by Hoover, and kept under constant illegal surveillance. Large files were kept on all of them in the FBI main offices, and in Hoover’s personal files. Black leaders were targeted (among other leftists) under Hoover’s secret & dirty COINTELPRO operation.

3) J. Edgar Hoover ignored & downplayed the parasitic & destructive activities of organized crime for decades, publicly insisting (as Director of the FBI) that there was no such thing as the mafia [!], when in fact he worked with mobsters behind the scenes to do FBI dirty work such as political assassinations.

There’s so much more, and honestly it gets really hard to read & handle all of it at certain points, because the abuse-of-power is so gross & unchecked; and because everyone is so corrupt and afraid to confront the one who knows everyone’s darkest secrets. Gentry’s authoritative biography is 800+ pages with its notes & index, which means its hardback form is really good for throwing, and it’s contents generate that inclination with explosive frequency. One of Hoover’s favorites quotes is, “There’s something addicting about a secret.” That’s J. Edgar Hoover in a nutshell: addictive, manipulative & abusive. The moral is, no one should ever be allowed to wield such power.

Since Hoover was the FBI to its core, what is this organization today? It’s still a Gestapo, with no accountability, and gross abuses-of-power. It’s probably still secretly run by creeper homosexuals (or the like), who get off on invading anyone’s privacy at will, knowing they are immune to prosecution or even detection. There are more blacks & women involved in this, which is considered “progress” by some. The FBI still acts & classifies everything it does in the name of “national security.” Organized crime is still allow to “do business.”

This is the FBI in 2018, and in the interests of the youth & working masses everywhere, it can’t be allowed to continue unchecked. There’s something creepy about knowing everyone’s secrets. Don’t you think?

Postscript (Film Review):

Who killed Tupac? According to Snoop Dogg (who knows): “The big guy next to him in the car… Suge Knight.” Knight had Tupac killed before he could part ways with Death Row Records. The supposed East coast vs. West coast rivalry was a narrative created by Suge Knight to cover for his murder of Tupac, to whom he owed $10 million in back royalties. This set up Biggie to be killed.

Ex-detective Russelle Poole. describes how L.A.P.D. conspired to cover up Suge Knight’s conspiracy to kill Tupac and Biggie, with Poole forced out of his position as an L.A.P.D. detective for independently pursuing the investigation. Russell Poole suspected ex-cop David Mack, and Amir Muhammad (AKA- Harry Billups) to have worked with Suge Knight to kill Biggie.

The FBI was on site, with complete surveillance during the Biggie murder, yet the lone assassin was allowed to drive up, and in gangland style fire five shots into the side of the car where Biggie was seated, and then drive off without being identified or pursued by any authorities on the scene. The only rational explanation for that is the Feds & police being in on the hit, ordered by Suge Knight. Both murders remain unsolved, and hundreds of youth were killed in the ensuing gang wars after these high-profile assassinations. It is no coincidence that it took a UK filmmaker (Nick Broomfield) to tell Americans the truth we don’t want to hear.

In the end it’s not a black thing, or a white thing, or a straight/gay thing, or even a man/woman thing. It’s a green thing. When you put a large enough pile of money in front of someone, they can justify anything. The corrupting power & influence of money can’t be reformed, which is the fundamental lesson of capitalism.

The Writing Style & Influence of Trotsky

      1. Weird Ideas - Ric Size

 

The writing style of Marxists typically suffers from dryness. This is inherent to scientific socialism & dialectical materialism, which can be dense and abstract concepts. Sports & Hollywood is easier & more titillating, and that’s what most people follow. Unfortunately those areas are mostly banal dead-ends of militarism & conformity, so little (if any) political insight comes from these spheres, as everything dirty is kept hidden from the masses by corporate. This is the job of the media, to distract, confuse, mis-inform, and when necessary– censor & blacklist.

Marxists typically don’t enter entertainment domains in polemics, as mass media has a 24/7 bureaucratic machine that floods the Internet with content, which can be intimidating & overwhelming. But really these distractions are very much are part of the entire propaganda organ known as US politics, so they must be confronted & analyzed by Marxists.

When QB Colin Kaepernick is blacklisted from the NFL, sports gets political (again) in a hurry. When Hollywood gets behind the CIA Democrats’ #MeToo witch-hunt campaign, then elite cliques & mobs are supporting fascism. When teachers’ across the country are going out on strike, without the consent of their unions; only to be betrayed by “their” bureaucratic machinery, then workers, families & students become politicized. This is where writing skills & creativity, along with clear Marxist rationalizations of the facts, can attract new political readers hungry for the truth.

Normally people don’t pay attention to politics, because they know it’s corrupt and beyond their reach. US politics has now reached a dialectical tipping point, where the old rules aren’t applying anymore. The vast majority of Americans are ready to make some new rules! This scares the ruling elites, and that’s why we have global increases in military spending, with cuts in social spending. Every government preparing for war, both foreign & domestic.

The most artistically brilliant Marxist writer in history was Leon Trotsky, who was able to explain the most-dense complexities with clarity, economy & flair. His use of analogies to make a point (or skewer an opponent), was that of a warrior spirit who composed with an ever-alert, but calm mind. Trotsky is the great unmentionable in “official” history.

Writing specifically and naming names, was another remarkable attribute to his genius and style. You are never left in doubt after reading Trotsky, as to what his position is, and what the position of all his opponents are. That’s valuable stuff, especially when you consider that 99+% of bourgeois historians are well-paid liars & falsifiers of history. The point is, if you want historical truths that resonate up through today, then read Trotsky and your understanding will be incomparable higher than all of these ivory tower pseudo-intellectuals. Much of the war that socialists are fighting is informational.

This piece was written and published on the 200th birthday of Karl Marx, the founder of scientific socialism. The philosophy of Marxism is dialectical materialism, which is always rejected by bourgeois “intellectuals,” due to its revolutionary core. In short: all facts in man & nature are based on matter (material), and are always undergoing changes in quantity & quality (dialectics).

The more Marxists who write effectively & prominently, the better people will understand the necessity of revolutionary socialism for ending capitalist inequality & oppression. In summary– it is up to Marxists to become more artistic, detailed & succulent in their prose. It is up to workers & youth to find genuine Marxism, to absorb & apply its lessons.
