Look at your feet

 “Vote for a living wage for others. Vote for health insurance for others. Don’t get in the way of food stamps for others. Understand how important $17 might be to others. That poor stretch of Atlanta is quiet because people are working and paying for daycare. They’re clocking the same hours you’re clocking, but they make a shit wage.”

An impressive reflection on inequality.

Holy War Catalysts

The Invisible Eminence in the Hidden Castle has a grand plan

One of the more naive depictions of the hidden Leninist in the current White House claims him to be the "Leni Riefenstahl of the right wing conservatives".

Only, Riefenstahl merely corrupted herself into an accessory to a humongous destruction engine.

While The Invisible Eminence in the Hidden Castle configures catalysts to vaporize checks and balances and ultimately: a world order with a core stability we all depend on.

And if your are not scared enough: Bannon And The National Security Council’s Secret “Kill List”.

NRA Paradigm Shi(f)t

‪The NRA Prepares for War (with the American People)

Decades of: "protection against potential tyranny in D.C." - out the window. ‬
‪Replaced with: "counter-resistance against the violent left".‬
‪ ‬
This shift weaponizes this vision of The Invisible Eminence in the Hidden Castle: "Let the grassroots turn on the hate because that's the only thing that will make them do their duty."‬

Is Bannonism upon us?

What does Steve Bannon really want?

There is no such thing as irrational behavior in execution of greater power.

There are visions and influential variables that lend direction, diversion or (all so purposely) deception to a projected path how the visions are accomplished.

When you want to understand drastic events to inform your assumptions for future direction, it might be wise to recognize and understand key influences to those events.

So, here you go: is Bannonism recognizable in recent events and more importantly: will it play out in its literal meaning and intent?

If so: we can only hope that other influencers are much, much stronger and globally intertwined or we all risk to fall victim to the most violent of visions.

A false claim of violating the U.S. sanctions to Iran destroying an amazing talent

Mahmoud Reza Banki (Persian: محمود رضا بانکی), an Iranian-American scientist and management consultant was - unjustly - arrested and charged with violating US sanctions against Iran by the United States Attorney.

Ultimately Mahmoud Reza Banki won his case on appeal - but he still lost everything he amazingly accomplished.

Another heavy price paid by an innocent victim of a flawed law system. It is utterly disturbing how carelessly and violently lives are shattered by scores of people that are accountable in such cases- from attorneys to judged to the jury - and base their massively impacting judgements on false or missing evidence.

Or - as in Mahmoud Reza Banki's case - accepting constructed diversions from the truth and established law. It is also a reminder of the vulnerability before a system that can crush anyone's existence while it claims to protect and uphold justice for all.

 

Yaphank - a shocking REAL piece of Nazi history in the U.S.

Can you imagine how the North American continent would look like today if Hitler Germany had won the war?

In a recent NPR feature about The Man in the High Castle I was shocked to learn about the very real Nazi history of Yaphank, New York.

Yaphank was home to Camp Siegfried, a summer camp which promoted Nazi ideology. It was owned and operated by the German American Bund, an American Nazi organization devoted to promoting a favorable view of Nazi Germany.

Camp Siegfried was one of many such camps in the US in the 1930s, including Camp Hindenberg in Grafton, Wisconsin, Camp Nordland in Andover, New Jersey and Deutschhorst Country Club in Sellersville, Pennsylvania.

It is intriguing and scary to imagine how such seeds were planted and nurtured back then. Let alone today when we all should be educated to know much better.

Following the TV Show The Man in the High Castle provides a troubling insight into the inner workings of unbalanced power and corruption at all levels of society.

Camp Siegfried was finally shut down by the US government when Germany declared war on the United States.
