John O. Brennan: CIA Drone Director

April 25, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Well, Barak Obama got his wish on the second try. With the confirmation of John Owen Brennan by the Senate, the CIA has a new director from their own ranks. “Brennan’s 25 years with the CIA included work as a Near East and South Asia analyst, as station chief in Saudi Arabia, and as director of the National Counterterrorism Center.” He proudly attests, “I’m neither Republican nor Democrat. I’ve worked for the past five administrations.” Imagine a non-partisan spook as D/CIA. If this development is intended to restore confidence in the agency, just what kind of organization will emerge from a careerist covert agent at the helm?

Groupthink in Service of Government

March 21, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

If the human race survives into the future, the history of the current age will be entitled – A Love Affair with Authority. As the 21st century unfolds, the existential struggle between group worship of government and an inherent autonomy revolt against a popular culture of state obedience seems to forecast doom for civilization. By any measurable standard of success, the prospects of rescuing a society based upon human dignity and natural law is vanishing in a technocratic system of coerced compliance and punitive punishment. The limits of individual behavior are severely restricted to the requirements of the State and the willful confines of self-induced conformity.

The Unknown

As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don’t know
We don’t know.

Know Nothing – The Reality of the American Experience

January 4, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Oh, remember those “good old days”. Discrimination and ethnic exclusion was the norm and a political party stood for “red meat” self-interest. The catcalls today ring with a “PC” note, how dare anyone even allude that restricting immigration can be part of open debate? The memory of the American Republican Party fades into vagueness of ignorance, knowing history is not a requirement of the modern Know Nothings. If you are one of these marginal historians, how can you be expected to appreciate the anti-immigrant sentiment that existed over a century and half ago?

Who Do Intelligence Snoops Serve?

November 23, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

“I strongly believe the CIA is ably led by George Tenet,” George W. Bush said in an Oval Office interview to be broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Well, from the perspective of the Intelligence Community culture, the president is probably correct. However; the essential question that is continuously ignored, asks if those assets serve the American People!

If terrorists were really serious

November 2, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

“Them against us”, is the battle cry. Forget about a “global struggle against violent extremism,” it’s a war, so says President Bush. Keep the pressure up and the fraud going. Never let the debate discuss the merits of the strategy or the results of the policy. Thinking can never be allowed to penetrate the decisions. Attack any opposition to the course of escalation and permanent intervention. Fight them “Over There”, so we can be safe at home! Ever wonder why these terrorists keep building nail bombs while the great super power runs their search and destroy missions?

Gun Control = Government Security

October 12, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

So says the latest reinvented panderer, a nefarious siren, from the clan of America’s most disgraced political family. What a legacy from the extended progeny of the dysfunctional. But she is not speaking about mere policy direction. No; she is consumed with offending the common sense of the residents in “The Old Line State”. Their motto is “Fatti maschii, parole femine” which can be interpreted as “strong deeds, gentle words” – it used to be interpreted as “manly deeds, womanly words” but it was officially reinterpreted in January 2001.

The Handbook of Human Ownership

September 21, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

The enslavement of humanity is replete throughout history. The reason is simple. The nature of societies allows corrupt sociopaths and malicious methods of domination to rule. The chronicles of any era clearly documents that liberty is rare. Inherent Autonomy is the intrinsic nature of the human condition. However, in the eternal struggle to achieve individual freedom, governments operate as overseers in invented schemes to herd human beasts into inhuman subjugation. The rule of the rulers over the resistance of the ruled is reality.

Rogue Terrorism for a Greater Israel

August 31, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Most peoples that resist the power politics of Zionism condemn aggressive actions of the outlaw Israeli state regularly. Yet most of the western democracies that are under the control of Talmud media and Khazar finance continue to defend the apartheid policies that are designed to purge any prospect of Palestinian, right to return, to the land of their forced removal. No matter what your politics are regarding the Middle East, the indisputable fact exists that the Greater Israel design for expanded territory is a core impediment of this interminable conflict.

Nobel Peace Prize for AWOL War President

August 10, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

William Jefferson Clinton was called the first black president. Now it can be said that Barry Soetoro is the first female president. What justifies such a label? Clearly, Barack Hussein Obama has no cojones. The Ipanema vacationer practices his African samba carnival dance while carnage rains from tomahawk missiles. Humanitarian altruism acts as cover for a remote controlled marionette doing the bidding in the Soros world of his sorcerer mentors. This commander in chief runs from his own shadow.

I Love DC

July 14, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

No other place on earth has as much appeal for aspiring autocrats than the bastion of indulgence that sprang up out of a swamp. The Potomac cuts through the monuments as it flows to the sea – taking with it all the discharge and waste that inexorably comes from spent excess. Where else can you find a place where nothing of value is created, no useful product is produced, completely void of any industrious endeavor? Absent in the practice of wealth creation has not hindered the establishment of temples. The cornerstones of an empire are fueled by the tribute extracted from the soil of the land. The superhighway of sustenance runs in only one direction. The life blood of survival comes in, that allows the organism of privilege to sustain its preeminent dominance. A one way street that is divided into quadrants, named with letters and circumvented by broad boulevards. How can it get any better than this? You just got to LOVE DC.

Time for the Second American Revolution

June 1, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

For well over the last decade BATR has argued that the Republic is dead. Now that the Supreme Court has rendered their decision on Obamacare, there can be no doubt that the funeral for a nation, born out of a revolution for liberty, is over. The country, buried in the ashes of totalitarian despotism, is now history.

The plurality of citizens naively accepts that the national government has legitimacy. Such a claim is erroneous. What more proof does one need that slavery is the official status for the American public. The implication of affirming the health insurance mandate sets the precedent for and escalates an unlimited federal tyranny.
