Lying and plagiarizing on an application to join the party seems par for the course for the world’s longest running Gresham’s law experiment.

in economics, Gresham’s law is a monetary principle stating that “bad money drives out good”. For example, if there are two forms of commodity money in circulation, which are accepted by law as having similar face value, the more valuable commodity will disappear from circulation.[1][2]

 

but…. the bad [worthless] driving out the good [worthy] works with language and applications also.

 

More on how the “China Dream” does not include freedom of association and freedom of expression.

When you see the word “befallen” read “befukt” the passive tense is a NY Times lie.

The Middle East didn’t “fall apart” it was taken apart by the West in order to suck the oil from the corpse of nations that used to have governments and now only have markets.

 

the political elite running the country are, in fact, traitors to their ‘fellow” US nationals

NGOs, maybe they are and maybe they aren’t.

A US organization claims it is an NGO but it has on its Board of Directors

  1. a person who currently holds a US federal office, is it an NGO? Not truly.
  2. a person who yesterday held a US federal office, is it an NGO? Not truly.
  3. a person who yesterday, until yesterday held a US federal office of some kind for thirty years, is it an NGO? Not truly.
  4. a person who thirty years ago, held a US federal office of some kind for a year or so is it an NGO? Maybe.
  5. a person who everyone “knows” is part of the power elite but who doesn’t/didn’t ever hold a US federal office, is it an NGO? I don’t think so.

A US organization claims it is an NGO but gets 60% of its funds from the US government? Is it an NGO? I don’t think so.

A US organization claims it is an NGO but gets 50% of its funds from the US government?

Is it an NGO? I don’t think so.

A US organization claims it is an NGO but gets 10% of its funds from the US government?

Is it an NGO? I don’t think so.

 

A US organization claims it is an NGO but all contributions to it are tax credits?

Is it an NGO? I don’t think so.

Claiming to be an NGO and being a servant of government interests are two different things.

And a country has the right to know if it is being invaded.

 

 

 

 

Hand counted, paper ballots, fuck the election computers and the companies that peddle them using bribists to get them purchased.

It is to be kept in mind that then VP Cheney was telephoning in torture instructions

August 11, 2016 § Leave a comment

during what amounted to medical experimentations on humans being directed from the United States White House. That’s how despicable Cheney was and also is evidence of how despicable Obama is for, in effect pardoning and granting immunity to war criminals by saying, in effect, let bygones be bygones. If you tolerate torture you stand in the shoes of the torturer and occupy the same “moral ground” as a torturer.
