This month was the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s second annual address to the US Congress, and I am only re-engaging with this story because of its significance, its vibrant optimism, and its being a message for the ages, and that is why I bring it back here again, because we need to hear it now as we are traversing a new period of internal divisions, instigated hate and the tearing apart of our national fabric in the push for a new Civil War.

1860s, 1877, 1972, and 2016-Now, is the time line of our Ongoing Low-Grade Civil War, because the all round firing squad is active in all of the political rhetoric, political actions, and in the disruptive impeachment efforts of this era that is heralded as the Trump Impeachment era where the arguments are so personal and overheated as the hate of those engaged in a vicious knife fight, so it’s hard to know where the hyperbole ends and the truth begins.

This includes recent incidents of civil war talk from our President and from his opponents as well.

As a matter of fact, the discussion about Civil War 2.0 has become so commonplace as to show up in the most mundane places, because we are on the verge of a revamp of the Blue and the Gray on the killing fields of Antietam and Gettysburg — only this time the war will be fought with theater nuclear weapons attacking our major cities, and it will soon involve all of humanity in this looming conflagration…

And if you think that I am exaggerating — please consider that as a matter of fact, there have been several overt versions of civil war in this country’s history, that we typically fail to understand as such.

Take for example the period of “Reconstruction” and the 1960s being the timelines that represented deep disputes over that times’ “war” effort, the necessity for it, the efforts & the potential outcomes of it, & how to define the nation and who belonged to it.

Obviously both periods ended with the assassinations of popular Presidents and with the reactionaries taking over the leadership & management of the State in order to reinstate the inherent inequality, as it existed in every system of governance before the Great Emancipator or JFK had come along.

Yet today it is incumbent upon us, to understand the echoes from those times of Civil War and national humiliation and trials, in order to comprehend the current movement and momentum pushing for Civil War 2.0 and the destruction of evberythgn that we hold sacred in this nation.

As a matter of fact, we have been living in a low grade civil war since Newt Gingrich took Congress for the Republicans in 1994, because his Republican party was not merely partisan, but demanded that its version of the nation be protected at all costs, even if this meant defying the popular will or shutting down the government.

For this reason Republicans have refused to treat Democratic presidents as legitimate. In the 1990s Rush Limbaugh claimed America was “held hostage,” an attitude culminating in Clinton’s impeachment.

At the start of Obama’s presidency Limbaugh gave a speech at CPAC calling for resistance at all costs, a call that we heeded without wavering for eight years. Glenn Beck and his chalkboard spoke of doomsday scenarios, practically telegraphing a civil war to come.

Elected Republicans complied with this narrative, filibustering at every opportunity and shutting down the government as a hostage-taking maneuver multiple times. They took the unprecedented step of blocking Obama from placing a justice on the Supreme Court when almost a year of his term was left. People talk of a “constitutional crisis” these days as if we haven’t been in one for years.

It’s not just at the federal level. In Wisconsin and North Carolina Republican legislatures have stripped the governor of power once the office was occupied by a Democrat. These same legislatures were elected by a minority of Republican voters given majority power through highly partisan gerrymandering. The root cause is the same at all levels: conservatives believe that they are the “real Americans” and thus must do everything in their power, including limiting democracy, to keep back the progressive tide they think will destroy their nation. Hence the Tea Party rallying cry of “take our country back.”

That subtext was recently made text by Attorney General Bill Barr’s speech at the Federalist Society, claiming that progressives represent an existential threat to the nation due to their disrespect for the rule of law. Another recent speech of his at Notre Dame claimed that these progressives hellbent on a secular takeover of the country. Never mind that the people of this country have become less churched and less interested in making the conservative Christian agenda law in the form of things like bans on gay marriage. That doesn’t matter because Barr and his compatriots feel that this is supposed to be a Christian nation, whether the majority want it to be or not.

In many respects, Donald Trump is the logical endpoint of what happened in the 2008 election. John McCain, for all his many faults, took people at his rallies to task for calling Barack Obama a secret Muslim. At the same time, however, his running mate Sarah Palin went “rogue” and talked of “real America” under threat from alien elements. This was the nationalist red meat the conservative base yearned to feast on. They would get a massive helping once that base was organized more coherently as the Tea Party.

A lot of movement conservatives believed that the country truly wanted their corporate-friendly agenda, but Mitt Romney’s losing campaign proved otherwise.

The media and others failed to understand that the Tea Party wasn’t about taxes — it was about taxes going to help “those people.” Trump saw this, and went straight for the “Herrenvolk nationalism” that Republicans like McCain had avoided, understanding that it was a vast untapped force, one deeply rooted in this country’s history. In fact, populist nationalism is the most powerful political force in the world today, from Brazil to Italy to India.

In this, as always, America is not the exception it fancies itself to be.

Trumpism defines membership in the nation by blood and race rather than by shared values and citizenship. That understanding of the nation had been there from the beginning, in the 1790 Naturalization Act’s dictum that immigrants needed to be “free, white, and 21” to gain citizenship. It was there in Roger Taney’s decision in the 1857 Dred Scott case, which said that only white people could be citizens. The Civil War not only ended slavery, it redefined membership in the nation. The 14th Amendment granted all people born in America citizenship, a principle that even survived the weakening of that amendment by Jim Crow.

In our time the Trump administration is trying to strip away birthright citizenship, which even the nativists of the 1920s failed to do.

Trump and those nativists are part of a longer tradition of “Herrenvolk nationalism” in American history. As “racial progress” in American life is inevitably met with “racist progress,” Trump and his minions like Stephen Miller et al, share the goal of the 1870s “Redeemers” to recreate some form of misguided “white” supremacy that looks like the rainbow coalition of dissatisfied and disgruntled Americans, who feel left behind by globalism and the forces of the bicoastal elites of fake Democrats and Libertarians…

In the event that you are historically literate, you ought to know that the period of “Reconstruction” after the Civil War of the 1860’s ended with violent vote suppression, Southern Democrats reinstating plantations and their plantation political agendas of “slavery-uber-alles” and white supremacist terror — all directed against blacks, pro-Reconstruction voters, and politicians.

As a matter of fact, in most parts of the South, this looked more like violent military coups and bloody battles raging, than anything else. What followed was voter suppression, gerrymandering, and one party rule in the South (Democratic party), all activating vast amounts of money, energy & people, in order to maintain the illusion of white supremacy.

Let’s cheers thrice and have a mint julep, for that achievement of the Democratic party that still does the same things today trying to shoehorn people into it’s mental slavery plantation political agenda.

Yet in time, the divisions softened, but today, many of the same states, are engaged in the same practices, because true democracy, only lasted less than fifty years there, from the Voting Rights Act in 1865, to the Shelby decision gutting to become that law in 2013.

In Alabama, where voting rights advocates paid for progress with their lives in the 1960s, voters in need of required IDs must now travel close to a hundred miles in some cases. What we are seeing today is not new, but rather the return of the constant. The illusion of moral arcs has bred complacency, and some strange folks, like the “Redeemers” Trump, McCain, Mitt Romney, McConnell, et al, along with a healthy dose of Democrats from the South — and some libertarians, have consciously decided that limiting democracy is an acceptable tactic in maintaining their idea of a white coalition harping and hoping for a “Real America” to re-emerge from the ashes of the looming open Civil War 2.0 in our timeline of the millennials and their brethren.

And it is not difficult to imagine the carnage if you look at another time this nation was sorely divided, over the Vietnam war in the 1960s — a difficult time of an era whose violent outbursts echo what we are now hearing, witnessing and bearing, just as much as the shocks of the end of the period of the after Civil War “Reconstruction” because in the 1960s, although there was no bloody-open civil war; the governmental authorities certainly acted like one was on and daily murders by the deep state and the police authorities and other governmental organizations, were the norm .

Because how else could you explain the many murders and assassinations such as those of Fred Hampton by the Chicago police, or the state-sponsored murders by the National Guard and our military powers, at Kent State, Jackson State, and Orangeburg?

Need to remind you that this was the same 1960s that the assassinations of the most beloved President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, ushered the age of hate and discord, when he was killed, simply because he wanted to end the Vietnam war, and LBJ and his criminal cronies saw it as an expedient way to keep the military industrial complex n the gravy train… And what about the murder of the true revolutionary and people’s choice Malcolm X, or the revered Reverent Martin Luther King who brought Civil Rights to where it is today and whose sermons of Peace and Love gave Hope to many millions of our countrymen? And what about the assassination of Robert Fitzerald Kennedy, who was shot dead in the ground from the dastardly assassins’ bullets, in order to open the way and thus get the evil and crooked Richard Nixon in the oval office inside the White House, so that he can continue and expand the Vietnam war to its logical conclusion — a distant & shameful loss for America and it’s righteous cause?

Yet, although the simmering low-boil Civil War was on, America did not descend into outright authoritarianism after the convulsions of the 1960s — only because backlash politics had majority support.

Indeed as history tells it, Richard Nixon won his re-election in 1972 by a landslide. Calls for greater racial equality ended in the 1970s with mass incarceration and a “war on drugs” that John Ehrlichman later admitted was a war against black activists, the hippy-left, and the progressive whites — war by other means.

The yearning for individual freedom expressed in the sixties counter culture, mutated into the neoliberal individualism of the Reagan era, and the vast consumerism and business acumen culture of the youth today, whose best and brightest shun politics and the public arena for becoming StartUp billionaires straight out of Stanford University and MIT, or Harvard…

And when the election of Barack Obama threatened that Neoliberal new order — the Tea Party and then the “simpleton puppet” of Donald Trump as “Dennis the Menace” suddenly appeared on the scene. And it was right at that time that mainstream Republicans also decided to abandon democracy in order to maintain their seemingly inefficient “electoral minority” rule far longer than they had the energy to hold office due to the second law of Thermodynamics.

Because to them, this was the only way “Real America” could be preserved, and its preservation must be maintained at all costs. So, now this “low grade” civil war has now shifted into a higher gear, one where the lingering cultural divides of the era of Reconstruction and of the divisions of the 1960s and the boomer generation, are being fought over with the tactics of the admittedly successful militant tactics of the 1870s bloody Reconstruction after Lincoln’s assassination.

Yet, the problem is that so many liberals refuse to believe that this is happening.

This is in large part because Germany’s Weimar Republic before Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933, is the only example they have in their minds when they think of authoritarian regimes destroying democracy. Everything is NAZI or Mother Teresa, but nothing exists in between for those ill-educated people. And of course in that narrative, if you cannot see the “brownshirts” with swastica armbands, marching down the streets, following the dictate of a screeching dictator outlawing opposition parties, calling for a “Kristallnacht” and executing all of his opponents after burning down the House of Congress — they feel quite complacent.

However, if they understood the subtleties of historical progress in their own lifetimes — they should have been thinking about America in 1877, when an understanding of national belonging based on citizenship, was violently smothered to death by one based on blood and race.

And even worse for all of us today, is that if one must look to other distant countries, or even look to our neighbors in the Central and South of this vast American continent, where reactionary militant nationalism and the rule of strong-men, has seized nations from Costa Rica, to Bolivia, to Brazil and all in between — you’ll get the necessary message.

As indeed Bill Barr’s “Opus Dei” inspired rants would’ve been perfectly at home in the “dirty war” carried out by Argentina’s Videla military regime in the 1970s and 1980s, when the “desaparesidos” were dropped half dead from airplanes in the Pacific ocean far from shores to become fish food… only because the people believed in remedial justice and wanted a healthy dose of Liberation Theology that inspired their strong Christian beliefs. And we know this now, because the majority of the “desaparesidos” were strong Argentinian Christians who believed in a sane God of love and Hope for all… just like our current Pope Francis was in his truculent years living and preaching in Argentina during those evil times of wrath and retribution. Strange times of terror shape men like iron is forged in the cauldrons of fire and extreme heat. A time that surely prepared Francis, for his high pontifical posting and for his message of Christian virtue, Love and Hope for all Peoples, and for all the people of this Earth — the true lambs of God.

But I digress, and I must say now that we can only start to “fight” for peace, and fight against the Civil War in America, only have once we acknowledged and we have understood that we have been embroiled in a low-grade civil war and constitutional crisis already.

Because this battle will not be won without major costs in terror, in blood, and lives lost. It seems that the mass murders in Las Vegas, in El Paso, in Pittsburgh, and so many others such as Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, are proof enough that blood is already being spilled.

Yet, in our atomized, Instagram & Facebook 21st-century ego-times the violence isn’t coming directly from the state, but from seeming “lone wolves” who are mentally enslaved to introduce violence like the Saudi terrorists, who they can then be blamed for all that ails us. But these errant morons are not acting alone, because they are taught at the religious schools of Islamofascist hate or any other kind of hate, and are given constant encouragement by a sewer of online hate and tin some cases even by the Congress people and then even by the president of the United States himself, who called the Nazis at Charlottesville “some fine people” amongst many other influencers of Hate and Discord out there.

It is these forces that need to be seen clearly as the culprits of the Civil War 2.0 and it is those evil urges that we need to fight against, even if it means a leap into new danger of an open bloody conflagration coming sooner rather than later.

The contradiction in this statement is not lost on me, but sometimes it is best to prepare for the inevitable and to even proactively strike the first blow, if it mends to not shrink from this fight because it will be dangerous, deadly, or even downright shameful.

Some people say that there is no moral arc to the universe, but I don’t believe that, and I only see that history does not move in a straight line, so people often confuse these turns and bends as an immoral act of God, but for anyone observant of strong faith — it is understood as being exactly the opposite.

And of course the only way the Arc of the Universe bends towards Justice, is by everyone of us righteous Americans, and Righteous people of the World out there — getting out and pushing the wheel of progress forward.

And as it seems now — the times we live through demand that we push more and more strongly on the wheel of progress, as we pray stoutly for Deliverance and Grace on this time of trials for America, our beloved nation that still is the best hope for all the World.

And since the current era carries the echoes of the times after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln left the nation bereft and saddened and also left the Great Emancipator’s task unfinished — let us turn to his ideas and aspirations for accomplishing the vision for America that he harbored in the many folds of his rather large heart…

And it is here where Lincoln and his exciting words come handy, because he can stir not only our actins but also out imagination.

Remember that Lincoln was an accomplished orator and that is why he came to the executive office, and on his Second Address to Congress he spoke of the Civil War brewing in his hands…

In this rousing address he stated humbly, with a tepid report on initiatives taken by his administration in the previous year.

Yet, at the end of that rather long disquisition, he launched into an eloquent coda – reminiscent, of the Saint Crispin Day speech of Henry the 5th in Shakespeare’s play Henry V that has gone down in history as the most salient war chieftain’s speech ever recorded.

And it is this strength of speechifying and secret messaging in plain view that makes this speech’s ending so powerful, especially when placed in that perilous context of the Civil War’s losing phase — that bears reading and re-reading this secret code from Abraham Lincoln for ourselves and for our progeny, so that we might become strong in Spirit and resilient in Nature, in order to fight on, so that we can keep this Democratic Republic of the United States, going for the next few generations ahead as the “Best Hope of the World.”

Lincoln spoke thus, and he entered History forever, only after he had dispensed with the enumeration of business items through his reporting to the assembled Congress of all of his administrative doings, his initiatives, and also after he spoke about his visionary agenda items that he had established during the past year … and now wanted to drive home his point of Courage.

Here is the Great Emancipator in his own words:

“Fellow-citizens, we can not escape history. We of this Congress and this Administration will be remembered in spite of ourselves.

No personal significance or insignificance can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor to the latest generation. We say we are for the Union.

The world will not forget that we say this. We know how to save the Union. The world knows we do know how to save it. We, even we here, hold the power and bear the responsibility. In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom to the free–honorable alike in what we give and what we preserve.

We shall nobly save or meanly lose the last best hope of earth. Other means may succeed; this could not fail.

The way is plain, peaceful, generous, just–a way which if followed the world will forever applaud and God must forever bless.”

Dr Churchill


Indeed here and at this momentous times — the 14th President, Abraham Lincoln was speaking of emancipation, but also he was speaking of a larger topic.

He was spiritually speaking of the ultimate survival of democracy.

With his “last best hope” Lincoln improved upon Thomas Jefferson’s inaugural phrase in which he called America “the world’s best hope.”

Lincoln was making the passionate plea to God and Man and beseeching the Spirit that

“America, for all her problems, is still worth fighting for.”

Five million children are starving in Yemen, and upwards of 60,000 of them are dying off each and every month… while the Saudis are living it up, getting crazy Riyadh entertainment, and enjoying their meaty diet on the back of the dead children of Yemen.

What a travesty of Justice…

Screen Shot 2019-12-06 at 2.25.16 PM.png

But as I wonder about this and as I reflect on the subject of the future in that sorry place of this earth… I come to some rather uncomfortable conclusions, always starting with the Socratic dialogue questions that lead us to the truth.

A big question is this one:

Will this inhumanity, the thuggery of the regime, the constant assassinatinons of opponents, journalists, domestic bloggers and all opponents, like the assassination of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the indiscriminate bombing of civilians and the starving of the children of Yemen, innocent bystanders in the Saudi Yemenese War — be the final end of Saudi Arabia as we know it and not just the end of it’s uber-corrupt regime?

Methinks, Yes, because as I write these lines today, when Saudi Arabia & Yemen are engaged in a deadly struggle to the end and nothing the US or even Iran can do to stop that death embrace… another stupid jihadist Saudi terrorist assassinated US military personnel inside Pensacola’s Air Force training facility where he was being trained as a pilot…

And I wonder here outlaid — when is the lesson going to be learned that you cannot allow, invite and welcome in our military facilities these jihadist Islamofascist Saudi terrotists, because since infancy their hateful form of the Islamic faith, Wahabbism, teaches them and indoctrinates them to become suicide bombers and to kill themselves alongside infidels in order to gain the Paradise where they will have a romantic rice pilaf dinners with a 72 year old virgin.

So why do we expect to train these schizophrenic people inside our military facilities thus exposing our soldiers to death and many other harms for simply wanting to help train these hateful morons, who only know how to kill babies through attrition, imposed famines, and military strategy of starvation and blitzkrieg bombing campaigns against civilians?

The recent stupid plan that ended in the now infamous debacle of Aramco’s IPO is another clue of how clueless the current Crown Prince MBS and his criminally corrupt posse can be. Because this yougnthug, the Crown Prince MbS, while ruling on behalf of his father King Salman who is obviously incapacitated and unable to force his Asperger’s syndrome suffering son, to become a halfway decent human being before he could aspire to become a halfway decent leader…

So as it appears from the dearth of leadership — it is the prince who is responsible not only for the wholesale murders of children in Yemen, but also for the attack on Saudi Arabia’s major oil processing station in Abqaiq in the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia, at the end of this past September, which marked a major turning point in the war, as well as in the way academics and policy practitioners, politicians and military and security leaders view the regional MENA conflicts, and also the major conflicts of influence in the global socio-economic political arena, and in the conferences of all the developed world’s Leaders, (G7, G20, and UN) along with a major disruption in the ministries of Oil, Gas & Energy, along with the various departments of State, the Whitehalls, the Kremlins, and the Pentagons worldwide.

And this of course, is because this turning of the war, is an even bigger story, than any of us realizes… because since the errant prince and his cohorts of criminal minds chose to hit civilians with airstrikes in Yemen — any results of that stupidity, are his fault. Simple blowback, and the inevitable chicken coming home to roost, and the personal defamation, same as the global lowering of the position of his regime to the status of North Korea, because of his unashamed ordering the cruel, premeditated and massively stupid act of assassination after ordering the bloody murder and dismemberment of the Washington post journalist Kassoghi inside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Instabul.

And why?

Because the little stupid & spoiled prince wanted to have the fingers of the assassinated journalist brought back to him as a sick trophy thinking that this will scare or deter other journalists from speaking out about his evil Saddam Husein style regime.

He is responsible and he should hang for his many crimes, because this is not the first nor the last murder the little thuggish MbS prince has committed and he is not likely to stop until he gets stopped.

After all, our own CIA has concluded beyond any doubt, that the Saudi crown prince MBS ordered Jamal Khashoggi’s assassination, personally and directly:

Screen Shot 2019-12-06 at 2.51.33 PM    “The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last month, contradicting the Saudi government’s claims that he was not involved in the killing, according to people familiar with the matter.”  Read in Arabic: وكالة الاستخبارات المركزية تستنتج أنّ ولي العهد السعودي أمر باغتيال جمال خاشقجي  “The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally. A team of 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul on government aircraft in October and killed Khashoggi inside the Saudi Consulate, where he had gone to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman.”

As for the September strike of drones deep inside Saudi Arabia’s ARAMCO oil processing facilities — the most heavily protected oil refinery in the world — proves that the MBS regime s a joke, and while some errant forces within the U.S. political circles, as well as within Israel and of course, Saudi Arabia, keep trying to shift the blame to Iran, the truth of the matter is that the Houthis of North Yemen were responsible for the attack, as a follow up to last month’s hit which showed off the capabilities of their new drones and target acquisition acumen.

That attack set the stage for the latest one in a classic case of the past being prologue. By showing the world it was capable of throwing bombing drones anywhere within Saudi Arabia — the Houthi insurgents of Yemen have created the probability as well as the plausibility for last September’s weekend attack that has put the ARAMCO refinery out of business for the foreseeable future.

Chicken coming home to roost are the drones that are lobbed against Saudi targets deep inside the desert in fair payment for the starvation of the Yemenese chidden that is the stated goal of MbS and his cronies, in complete contravention of any laws of decency in war and of the most important articles of the Geneva convention that rules all acts of war, all military leadership deportment, as well as officer conduct and responsible leaders and executive officers at all levels of government…

And not despot or petty tyrant is above that Court’s orders as the NAZIs, the Serbian criminal mastermind Milosevic, Sudan’s butcher, and many others have found out in recent years.

Screen Shot 2019-12-06 at 2.40.14 PM

Indeed the International Criminal Tribunal in Haque has been assessing the criminality of the Saudi side in the Yemenese conflict and preparing indictments against the most serious criminals and it is these indictments that the MbS and his circle will find difficult to escape…

And as I have stated here previously — this drone attack against the refineries, begs a lot of questions from those in charge on both the Saudi side and on the US side and apparently, the ham-fisted push to blame Iran for it, after President Trump all but ruled out a military response from the US from all corners of the corrupt deep state of the US and Saudi establishment; opens up even more questions of corruption, insider dealings and mafia style governing by MBS and his criminal cohort.

Because if this was a swarm drone attack from Iraq or from Iran, as claimed now, and as supported by factless conjecture — then how did all the vaunted US technology of deployed defense against drone attacks, patriot missile batteries, Aegis missiles, and even latest generation anti-drone squads of antiaircraft fire barrages and all, fail to account for it and most critically completely failed to stop the attack?

Please keep in mind that the U.S. Naval CENTCOM is in Bahrain, and methinks that these well trained US military personnel cannot be blind as well as incompetent…

No. I don’t think they are.

Say what you wish about the general US political leadership, and the nigh-treasonous bureaucracy supporting it — yet I don’t think our military is fundamentally corrupt, and it is not lazy, or stupid like the Saudis are…

After all, what is it that we are spending all of our money on, after all?

Yet, by continuing to spin this successful Houthi attack against the heart of the Saudi leadership, as Iranian in origin — people like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Saudi Arabian government are throwing the Pentagon under the bus and there is no economic benefit to doing this whatsoever, except a misguided world view of attributing to our major enemies the faults and the misdeeds of our errant friends.

Because if you follow that generally faulty logic — you could easily see this attack as a red herring that was done by Saudi Arabia in order to cause sympathy for its criminal behavior in Yemen and elsewhere…

And methinks that the current Saudi crop of bumbling idiots are not that smart to be able to come up with such a ploy.

The truth is that the Houthis had to respond to the Saudi terror that has stopped all food from coming into the Yemen in order to starve the population into submission. But that is not going to be an effective tool of war, not only because it is illegal to target the innocent population of non-combatants and especially infants and children for collective punishment, as clearly spelled out at the Geneva Accords, but also these inhuman acts necessitate a Nuremberg style of military tribunals when the war finally ends and the International Court of Justice will have to try MbS and his cohort, with obvious results.

That the Houthis are winning this war, is another improbable effect of the arrogance of MbS and the Saudi circle of leadership, and the end result of trying to re-frame this military victory, as an attack by Iraqi Shi’ite militias, the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), in conjunction with the IRGC, who are are trying to further separate them from the Iraqi government who still openly supports them and thus deflects against Saudi Arabia’s inherent weakness and incompetence.

And as it turns out, the PMUs have already been our political enemy and a target of our skewed policy in Iraq for months now, as if we are Saudi-stupid and are looking to restart the chaos in Iraq, which clearly will result in another Iranian victory soonest…

And that is the absolutely wrong signal to send to the world out there, because both Iraq and Syria continue to try and re-open the Al-Bukumai border crossing near Deir Ezzor. In response to the drone attack on Saudi Arabia there were two sets of airstrikes there on the 17th and the 18th. Saudi Arabia denies being involved and blamed Israel for the strikes.

So what are we doing?

The Shia Muslim Crescent is forming up strong, and the PMUs are an important part of this Iranian policy objective, wherein Iran is investing billions in new road and rail links from Tehran to Beirut and to all points Shia in the MENA region…

So, the existential threat to Saudi Arabia, from Shia aligned groups within and without the kingdom is rather real.

Of that I have no doubt.

But, notice what’s happening. Everyone’s pointing fingers at each other within the U.S. and Saudi alliance right now…

Meanwhile Iran very calmly keeps denying the attack.

I fully expect proof from them in the near future if the U.S. shows “proof” of Iran’s involvement.

Think back to the drone incident in June which nearly landed us in a war with Iran. The story morphed and changed with each day. The Iranians had the data, the proof, on their side and they let morons like Pompeo say provably false things before releasing it.

“Drip Drip Drip” is the strategy, as Andrew Breitbart used to call it. Drip out some information and allow your target to lie about it. Then drip out the next bit exposing that lie. And so on, and so on.

That’s what Iran did in June, humiliating Trump at every turn. And I’m sure if they weren’t behind this attack they will do the same thing in the coming days.

And I also think the U.S knows this as well. And that’s why nothing much more will come of it. It will be used diplomatically to tie Trump’s hands and front a lie to conceal more important truths.

The Saudi Arabians cannot defend their home, mainly because all Saudi air defense coverage is rather poor and because of all the ill-trained Saudi pilots who are eerily afraid to even fly at night because of the fear of Jihns and ghosts coming out at night…

And although the US naval positioning is not prepared for a step up in violence, and the US Carrier Groups are not in the Persian Gulf, the Iranians believe they can hit targets up to 2000 kilometers away.

How true that is versus U.S. air defense systems is questionable.

The Saudis have lost nearly all of their external support. The coalition against Yemen has collapsed.

The Houthis are winning.

Qatar hates them.

Egypt wouldn’t join Trump’s Arab NATO.

OPEC+ is floundering and Russia sets the tone.

And this brings me to the stark possibility that the Houthis are right now in a position to launch an all-out attack from Yemen against Saudi Arabia and destabilize the country.

Meanwhile the ruling prince MBS is organizing “Bread & Circuses” parties for his upset citizens in his capital Riyadh, so that the can stave off the looming rebellion of the Saudis who still like the rule of law and not the rule of thuggery, and who will want to see him hanged for his many crimes.

So internally the Saudi Arabian regime is toast.

Externally the same is true for the Saudi chances of regional control and stability, because the situation has now reached a point where there’s plenty of chatter across the Persian Gulf about a spectacular scenario, where the Houthis are investing in a mad dash across the Arabian desert to capture Mecca and Medina in conjunction with a mass Shiite uprising in the Eastern oil belt.

That’s not far-fetched anymore. Stranger things have happened in the Middle East. After all, the Saudis can’t even win a bar brawl – that’s why they rely on thugs, paid assassins, domestic murderers, and wholy disinterested mercenaries.

An uprising in the east has always been on the table. It’s why the Saudis need $80+ per barrel oil. They have to pay for social programs that keep the population relatively happy.

From every side now, the Saudi Kingdom is under existential threat. So, I’m not surprised they are trying to push the blame for this failure to protect their oil processing facilities and the destabilizing attacks on them, onto Iran.

The quick announcement by newly-minted Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman that Aramco’s production will be back to normal quickly was done to reassure potential investors in the upcoming yet now shelved, Aramco IPO, a $400 billion affair. Yet, because this is the lynchpin to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s (MbS) Vision 2030 plan for modernizing the kingdom’s economy — its failure is a personal body blow to the thuggish prince and it portends his replacement soonest with another of the King Salman’s children or remaining brothers.

That fits with the desire to deflect the source of the attack away from their war in Yemen. Because, as bad as the optics are for the U.S. military, they are far worse for the Saudis if the Houthis are truly the culprits and are so sophisticated and capable to attack anything and anyone they desire within Saudi territory.

Nobody is safe anymore. Not the palace dwellers, and not the army barracks or the DQ in Riyadh. Everyone is a target and must prepare for the inevitable drone blitz bombing campaign.

But the Saudi leadership under MBS and the rest of the Saudi leaders are all sleeping the sleep of the stupid and criminally minded, because at a minimum this is what reshuffling the chairs at the deck of the Titanic looks like. Acts such as changing of the energy minister is a signal to that effect, and although a shift in Saudi policy is always imminent and forthcoming — it goes without saying that making terms and suing for peace with the winning Houthis may be the only option to save MbS and his throne.

But I am afraid that he simply has not got the time he thinks he has, and he will not act due to his overzealous protection of his non-existent prestige…

And because there is no appetite for all out war with Iran in the United States — it turns out that the Saudis are no longer the ‘good Arabs’ to most political class Americans, as well as to most simple Americans especially after all the memories of 9/11 being rekindled with every fresh Saudi Arabian Islamofascist terrorist jihadist attack within the United States soil, such as the one in Pensacola Florida yesterday and the many others that occasionally happen because of the schizophrenic Saudi Arabian youth that studies in our country as a courtesy to the Wahabbism medressa, where Islamic training of their very effed-up country takes place and screws up all Saudi kids for ever.

Today Saudi Military trainee pilot and secret jihadist is the Islamofascist terrorist was gunned down after was found to be responsible for the deadly shooting of five Air Force persons inside the Pensacola Naval Air Station, according to the Pentagon:

Four people are dead, including the suspected gunman, after a man authorities identified as a Saudi aviation student open fired in a classroom at the Naval Air Station Pensacola on Friday morning. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) confirmed the suspect was a member of the Saudi military at a news conference Friday afternoon outside the military base. “There’s obviously going to be a lot of questions about this individual being a foreign national, being a part of the Saudi Air Force and then to be here training on our soil and to do this,” he said.

DeSantis said he spoke with President Trump about the shooting and emphasized that Riyadh would eventually need to respond.

“Obviously, the government of Saudi Arabia needs to make things better for these victims. I think they’re going to owe a debt here given that this was one of their individuals,” he said.

Trump talked to Saudi king: Later Friday afternoon, Trump said he had spoken with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman about the shooting.

“The King said that the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people,” Trump tweeted.

The Saudi leader expressed his condolences to the families of those killed in the shooting, Trump said.

“It’s a horrible thing that took place, and we’re getting to the bottom of it,” Trump said of the shooting during an event focused on deregulation.

The president would not say whether he believed the incident was an act of terrorism.

International training: The base’s commanding officer, Capt. Timothy Kinsella Jr., said the suspect was training in aviation, though he would not elaborate.

Indeed this shite happens inside America, where the military doesn’t want to put the soldiers at risk neither home nor abroad, and yet we have these constant terror attacks. But in the greater sense it is the Wall Street banker-wanker mentality that is afraid of a protracted war in the Middle East and therefore doesn’t want to see Saudi regime sidelined and oil production nose-diving, and thus precipitating a financial collapse that would make the Lehman Bros’ failure and the economic debacle of 2008, look like a fvckin walk in the park by comparison to what can ha[[en with the next oil crisis.

Additionally, the American military industrial complex, doesn’t want to expose their toys to the potential for them failing to dominate in the field of the desert sand-rat dwellers, and thus we are best staying home.

Because any type of war with Iran, will not be conventional. It will be asymmetric and terrorist as well… and we are not prepared for that as of now.

It will come from all sides, all across the Shia Crescent, but especially Yemen. Of this the Iranians have been very clear, regardless of the outcome. They believe their missile technology is superior to U.S. air defense systems.

They may be correct and the last thing the U.S. wants is an actual shooting war where the outcome isn’t a foregone conclusion.

The U.S. military is better served as a bogeyman, politically, rather than an actual physical threat, or as a policeman for the well fed, and criminally spoiled Saudi brats.

Having recently returned from a most far reaching Saudi Arabian fact-finding mission — I must say the Truth: This regimes tyrannical days of rule is coming to an end soonest.

This regime is unsustainable. The horrors they perpetuate are far too real. Their culpability is far too great and they all need to go starting with MbS and his criminal posse. These people are mass murderers and there is no place in the honorable soul of the Bedouin people for such lot as this…

Screen Shot 2019-12-06 at 2.31.36 PM

So, MbS better come to the sane conclusion that a settlement with Yemen to restore the Peace is the only sane conclusion as it also holds the only key to his near-term survival.

Because in a quick strike by the Houthis which creates an uprising across the country there’s precious little the U.S. can or will do to oppose his inevitable hanging from the gallows along with the rest of the ruling family and coterie of princes…

And while an all-out war would certainly bring the price of oil up at about $150+ per barrel of crude, which the Saudis need in order to balance their budget, they most likely wouldn’t be the ones selling into that market, and the only beneficiary will be the Iranians and their worldwide influence, along with the Russian and all the other resource dependent economies.

Tough break for the US then — wouldn’t you say?

Methinks so.

Voting is the POWER you have…

I was reading a friend’s letter and couldn’t but notice his seriousness about the Democratic process and the power that it holds to bring about change…

So here are the words of a friend who cannot take anybody who talks about wanting change in their community but doesn’t vote — seriously…

Too many people are focused on the results of crime while ignoring the causes. Why focus on what the President said or didn’t say. Go lookup your cities Mayor, the City Manager, Commissioners, Judges, any elected officials. Hold them accountable, EVERYDAY. Be consistent.

These are the people crating your neighborhoods. They decide if they want to issue permits to add another liquor store on the corner (RIP Mike Brown). They decide if its “in the budget” to add a park in a lower income neighborhood (RIP Tamir Rice). They decide if they want to send your family member to jail for 5 years for victimless crimes like selling weed or cigarettes (RIP Eric Garner). These elected officials are the ones deciding how much money these schools are receiving and whats in the budget for mental health (Get Well Charles Kinsey).

Gun violence is a direct result of a wave of hopelessness.

Kids just growing up but never being raised. Being ignored more and more and shoved in front of screens instead of books. Many have no identities.

Don’t let the internet raise your kids the same way the streets shouldn’t be raising them.

They will become desensitized and numb to violence and death.

These kids watch everything you do and how you move and mimic you or whoever you let around them.

Get informed. Use the internet to your advantage. Enroll your kids in technology camps to understand how and why computers work and how to code them. Encourage them to think outside the box and promote creativity. Buy them a $10 stock on Robinhood. It’s simple.

School teachers should never be the only qualified teachers in a kids life. I see a lot of people say the news isn’t covering this or that which maybe true but more importantly after you learned this “Untalked about news”, did you share it with the younger generation?

They might act like they aint listening but we know better. Kids are easily influenced. Who is influencing your kids? If you can’t mentor your child help them find one. Give them a purpose for life other than graduating high school. Help them find opportunities.

Giving one kid your attention for 10 minutes could change their lives.”

Still looking for the name of this friend who sent me this message that came down the pike and straight into my newsfeed…

Looking for the author in order to acknowledge and thank him/her, for these words of real strong wisdom.

PLMK if it is you.



So let’s all get together in strength and glory so that we can go out and VOTE and finally win one, for the country and for love of Liberty, because only the Independents can sort out the divisions and the bigoted hate rife with dishonor that is playing out the drama between the Dems and the Reps and all their stupid nonsense…

The Lincoln party leads forth with the 13th amendment all over again, only this time we are fighting mental slavery that is so prevalent in our country today…

Three little things that can change your Life instantly:

My question to you is this:

What do you think is the reason that you betray your dreams, betray all others you believe in, betray your ideals, principles and beliefs, and stops yourself from achieving your greatest human potential and thus stops you from enjoying your limitless self?

I bet you already know the answer already…

You knew it before I even broached the subject to you.

You know it, yet you are ashamed to admit it, because it is you since nothing and nobody else can stop you, but yourself.

Indeed, it is now as it has always been that it is always You — yourself, the one and only You — that kneecaps you and causes your stride to fail, and ultimately destroys all of your dreams.

So that is the ultimate realization.

Yet the same boat travels both ways.

You destroy and you can create.

It is a choice for You as it is for Me and for all the rest of us.

So if yo want to fix things up — please take heart, because it is not as difficult as it seems.

The first thing is that you ought to become more humorous, resilient & resourceful.

Second thing is that you ought to place your faith in the Lord and in his plans, and be creative with all aspects of your Life.

And third is that you must always be living in the here and now and thus live inside the present moment on the here and now, because you’ve got nothing else, and only if all your energy is focused in the present moment and connected to your higher nature, your creativity is limitless and your success is assured & unlimited…

Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 9.06.09 AM

Therefore, you can only be focused on the present moment, with no thoughts of the past or the future; and thus your limitless self can take hold.

Because only then, the self-limiting beliefs disappear, and you become fearless and ready to achieve your goals.

Therefore, please make an effort to erase your F.U.D.s (Fears, Uncertainties & Doubts) in favor of Courage that will lead you forth in grace, now and for ever.

And if you have to battle XL large and extremely difficult enemies — take heart, since the greater they are, the harder they fall…

Monsters and dragons hiding underneath your bed, or in the broom closet, or even in the near cupboard — need to take notice. There is a new sheriff in town and his name is the new You.

The Courageous version of yourself.

Now go out there and built it….

This s a simple sermon for You to change you in such a way, as to be able to see Rainbows and Unicorns for the rest of your Life.

Rules of war: Political conduct and campaigns…

Marshall Kamena is a registered Democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA.

He only ran on the democratic ticket because he knew that a Bay Area city would never vote for a Republican.

Yet, he is as conservative as they come.

As a matter of fact, he mashed the following article, form a piece originally written by Evan Sayet, a columnists for Townhall… and he had this to say:

“Trump’s lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship” By Evan Sayet in his article: “He Fights”

“My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.

They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship.

Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.

I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.

Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60’s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale..

It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.

Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.

Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking.. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN..

He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”…

Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. …

They need to respond.

This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church.

Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”?

Of course I do.

These aren’t those times.

This is war.

And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.

I don’t care.

I can’t spare this man.

He fights for America!”

Thanksgiving is a quintessential American holiday, because it is a holiday that in many ways requires some sense of the spiritual & the supernatural – whether we care to acknowledge it or not.

It’s a holiday for those who favor an open heart as well as an open mind. So I though that you ought to at you ought to enjoy the beginning of this Holiday, and therefore, here below you shall find our first President’s proclamation of Thanksgiving in which his sense of the hand of Providence upon the American Republic and on our Independence to live in Liberty, is quite clear.

Indeed, Washington’s mixing of both church and state, as well as belief and practice is undeniable, and somewhat evocative of his deeply rooted faith in Christ our Lord.

Feast your heart and your spirit by reading this and then sharing it on the Thanksgiving dinner table with your loved ones, your friends, and family alike, as I will do with the Lincoln party friends and colleagues on Thanksgiving evening:

Thanksgiving Proclamation
New York, 3rd of October 1789
By the President of the United States of America. a Proclamation:

“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor — and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be — That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation — for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war — for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed — for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted — for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions — to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually — to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord — To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us — and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

–George Washington

Dr Churchill


Now, that you have seen Washington’s Thanksgiving prayer — please consider the tone, the humility, and the outlook of President George Washington and ask yourself if any of our current leaders match him.

It is a breath of fresh air, a reminder that while our Founders had many sins, they were at the same time driven to seek the good, the true, and the beautiful.

They were deeply rooted in Western Civilization and understood the symbiosis between belief and practice.

For those who would argue that the Founders believed in a firm separation between church and state, a division of belief and practice, this document is a challenge.

Here we have the first president, a man who served his country in humility, helped steer her course, and intimately understood the type of government they were creating, assigning a day through government proclamation to be one “devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be…”

President Washington even gives thanks to the Almighty for the Constitution!

Taking our cue from our first President, on this Thanksgiving we should also give thanks and furthermore take the time to refresh both our hearts, as well as our spirits in equal measure.

And I hereby wish to all of our Lincoln party members and colleagues, a Great Thanksgiving and give the signal for all of our activities to commence herewith for the 2020 campaign for the US presidency.

Goodluck & Godspeed, and may the Good God favor our endeavors and bless our enterprise to save our Republic once again!

Despite the incredible groundswell we are now witnessing around the youth-led environment & climate movement that includes school strikes, UN protests, and the Climate conferences — the anger, the vision, and intelligence of children and teenagers like Greta Thunberg — many young people, hear the words that we have 18 months to tackle climate change or it will be too late and they think that in 18 months they are all going to die…

Maybe this thought is what inspires them to join the youth climate movements, the monasteries, or even the Extinction Rebellion — or more crucially, maybe this is the thought that actually paralyzes them, anesthetizes them, and keeps them away and asleep, only watching their small screens for solutions.

Indeed, young people can’t or won’t discuss climate change, not because they are too privileged, preoccupied, or intertwined with their phones, but because they are just not interested in hearing how we are all gonna die off, in ten months or ten years, or whatever length of time the latest wack job spouts out there…

Chill out people…

Things aren’t terminal as such, but we’ve got work to do to prevent a global warming beyond the 1,5 degrees that we’ve already managed to incur with certainty in the near term.

Don’t be sad, and instead celebrate that we at least have the current level of awareness to  measure that which we need to manage…

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 7.59.27 PM

Of course these young people, the adolescents, the GenZers, the college-goers, the GenXers, and almost all of the youth of today, won’t want to discuss this environmental warming and the global consequences of inaction, with any environmentally sensitive and reasonable adult scientist either — simply because what we have been doing for the last few decades — is scaring them to death.

And if all we are capable to think of is to ask them to confront their own mortality — we deserve to be getting blank stares in response.

So asking people to consider dying is indeed a bridge too far, when you are in your teens, or your twenties or even thirties… and you listen to those types who wear a sandwich board and go around saying that the Sky is Falling.

Chicken little and his cries of gloom and doom never had much success with rousing up people and that is why, whenever I speak in public, and have to explain to the young folks, that the planet is not going to spontaneously combust, or even change in any significant way over the next 12 months, or twelve years, or even twelve centuries — if we do not “solve” climate change, or even if we do nothing but engage in adaptation and mitigation — but as scientists we ought to recognize that a change of 1, 2, 3, or 5 degrees Celsius of global warming was never a scientific predictability, but rather it always was a social, economic, and political choice, as correctly extrapolated from the scientific data of the vast majority of Earth & Climate scientists the world over.

And in the event that some of us, want the future to even remotely look like what we have today, weighed against whatever we need to sacrifice to get there, and how fast we can do it — then this set of policies merit discussion and direct action.

But as of now — the people don’t want to do anything, because we are constantly bombarding them with messages of “climate catastrophe,” “cataclysm,” and “climate apocalypse” and that awful shrill “noise” gets old fast… and people are quite adept at tuning it out.


But as anyone who has ever raised an army or a tribe in order to fight for an issue or cause, or for a campaign, knows that in order to get people out onto the streets agitating and demonstrating — we need engaging stories of resilience and goodness with a Happy End, and we need fresh narratives that are optimistic about the future of our species and about all others who inhabit this planet alongside us.


We need Optimums in the face of Disaster.

Because that is the only way that we can give Courage and Confidence to our People to get them to fight for what is Right, Proper and Correct.

The risks are known.

But where are the rewards?

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 8.00.31 PM

Therefore and in order to shift the dialogue to a happy place that engages people we desperately need new stories and fresh narratives that move the needle past is the apocalyptic end as an endpoint, and get us to the promised land.

Ask old Moses and he will tell you that he didn’t get his people trekking through the desert for forty years by promising them a desert upon arrival, but the Israelites stayed on with Moses because he promised to lead them to the Land of Milk & Honey.

That’s Leadership and not the gloom and doom brigade of chicken littles out there harping catastrophe at any breath…

And am saying this not only because we suffer form a dearth of leadership in the West, but because there are people and societies around the equator, and other places, that are already living in the version of climate apocalypse on a daily basis, and they also lack leadership to guide them out of the catastrophe mode of existence.

Human species is =known for our extraordinary resilience, flexibility, and adaptation potential, but because looking at the climate crisis as an apocalypse can only inspire a helpless waiting for the post-apocalypse to arrive, suddenly, we all cleave to the long gone past, instead of pining for the beautiful future.

Climate is not our enemy — we are.

Climate is not weather, weather is not climate, and we don’t do ourselves any favors by thinking that climate scientists can provide us with an appropriately optimistic or apocalyptic forecast for our zip or postal code, in 18 months, in 18 years, or in 18 centuries from now.

Instead we need stories that showcase a variety of possible futures, from the bleak to the hopeful, and all the way to the very beautiful Utopia of the land of milk & honey — if we work towards that Visionary dream.

We desperately need narrative stories of hope, that can help us move past apocalypse as an endpoint of all of our climate and environmental issues, and boldly look at the future with hope and love for a resilient humanity that will live in a beautiful world for all human beings, and all other species of creation and nature.

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 7.58.53 PM

That is my kind of Leadership and that is is why I pushback against the environmental pessimist’s trend of apocalyptic, dystopian climate future, and instead I offer Hope and Love for a lifestyle and a cultural movement that focuses on a bountiful and beautiful green and eco-friendly future made possible by eliminating fossil fuel energy in favor of renewable energies like solar-wind-wave power, of sustainable resource usage, and of a cradle to cradle bio-inspired design of all of our systems and Cybernetic governance in Policy and Government together entwined with proper Science and Resilience mechanisms that include all of our ecosystems and subsystems around this good Earth that needs to regain it’s green living skin soon as possible.

Lets all go out there and built some forests and that is how we will win this game. And my leadership principles, may or may not be wholly utopian, but my style of Ecological Leadership certainly aspires for all of us to live inside a beautiful, green, and colorful world, as aesthetics that frequently mash together the elegance of Art with the craft of local culture, and the wildness of permaculture, in our streets, in our lawns, and in all our yards.

Hopeful stories that are not specifically climate-focused and, more importantly, stories that do not necessitate hopeful worlds are necessary in the age of Trump, so that this basic act of extending to another person love, hope & kindness — rather than disdain or vitriol, becomes a political narrative… that unites all of us to wish to struggle for a better tomorrow…

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 7.57.30 PM

Because much like the melting polar ice and the dismal fate of the Arctic — I find the negativity in all of today’s news, of Hate, Impeachment and Division Politics, almost like science fiction stories conceived from the tripartite of those losers who write always about their rage, sorrow and dystopia… and drive people to depression.

But that cannot last…

Depression is not healthy and being bipolar is totally off, and especially if you become depressed because of the 24/7/365 negative narratives that the Mass Media News outlets construct for you.

Therefore we need to start constructing, the beautiful Happy End stories that we need to tell ourselves, in the hope that with a smiling face, we look at the sun and then we carry through the effort of designing the future that we want to see in this world, and then going out there boldly and building it by taking power away from both camps of the chicken-littles and from the dinosaurs of our political leadership today.

And while there’s a scientific consensus that the atmosphere is warming due to our fossil fuel emissions, many aspects and extents of climate change remain uncertain.

Screen Shot 2019-11-25 at 7.53.39 PM

Therefore, writing non-apocalyptic climate change narratives can make room, intellectually and emotionally, for our failure to act sooner, and thus some things will be lost, and some more species will be gone as many already has been.

Yes, we ought to remain optimistic in the face of this giant adversity staring us in the face.

Because that is how we will get the Courage necessary to fight against it.

Because I suspect that young people still, are understandably afraid to engage, since they feel deep in their gut, that to recognize that climate change is here, that it will change their lives, and that indeed some people will die off — it means to accept the end of those lives, some of which will be from people of their generation…

And it is indeed an end to a certain way of living, to a certain mindset, and to our delusions, but it is not the end of the world or for the earth by a ing stretch of the imagination.

And that is why we need to counterbalance the catastrophology colloquium with the optimistic stories that we need to carry us all beyond apathy…

And that is why I hate the word Apocalypse and phrases like “The End of the World as we know it” and consequently my leadership style promises a future free of fossil fuels and full of the goodness of the Sun that can give us all the energy we want and need in every part of the world daily and without fail…

And that is the platform that I ride upon fore my bid for the United States Presidency in 2020, because we need a Leader who can decarbonize our future, adapt and mitigate our lifestyles and also rid us of our reliance and addiction to fossil fuels that go hand in hand with dealings with the most awful terrorist and tyrannical regimes.

Because our addiction to oil & gas coming from the lands of the desert sun, is the only reason that we had to befriend the tyrants and the despots of these terrorist heavens, because they happened to have oil hidden under their sands.

Enough of that.

Ennui… has ensued.

So if you want to see that kind of hopeful and loving leadership at the top pf the World in 2020, come join the Lincoln Party and be counted in the US elections where we will be fighting for a better world to come.


John F. Kennedy was President for less than three years, but in that short span of time, he pointed the nation towards the 21st century of Achievement, Aspirational Hope & Compassionate Love.

He also steered the American nation to outer space and to the moon explaining his reasoning in the simple words that still echo today: “We do these things not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”

JFK set about fulfilling President Lincoln’s promise to the minorities at home, and to the freedom loving people all over the World by promoting peace both at home and abroad, and by sending American volunteers around the world serving in the most benevolent organizations of Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, and US Aid.

Yet for all the good he did, on the anniversary of this day of November 22nd of 1963 — almost 60 years earlier than today — our President John Fitzerald Kennedy was traitorously gunned down and assassinated in Dallas, by internal enemies, the deep state, and ignoble claimants, lust for power…

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the United States’ young sage President, once said: “There are three important things in life, God, human folly, and laughter … The first two are beyond our comprehension, thus we must make the best of the third.”

On November 22, 1963, the laughter died, not only for JFK, but also for the whole of these United States of America.

And today, for most baby boomers, there are only two dates that stick out in our minds – November 22nd of 1963, and September 11th of 2001.

Because both of these moments are reminders of unbelievable national tragedy.

But maybe 11/22/63 was a little tougher, because all Americans knew the man. He barely won the 1960 election – although the following year over 60% of Americans said they voted for him, but, he brought something special to the White House … a beautiful young family, laughter, culture, and class.

Whatever you feel about Kennedy, the rest of the world saw this man who represented the United States of America and what they felt was simple: Hope and the redemptive power of Love.

He was the great-grandchild of immigrants, yet thanks to his family’s great wealth he never suffered poverty or hard discrimination, save for those Boston Brahmins who thought him “Shanty Irish” and “Catholic Devout” but in his gut, he was just another ordinary American wishing to serve his country.

And in this day of draft-dodging political cowards, when “Chickenhawk” is the perfect description for most politicians of both major parties, JFK went the other way, and indeed used his father’s influence — only to get into military service. And indeed he succeeded and served with the United States Navy, during World War II, and he still stands as a unique example of someone who pulled strings in order to enlist, so that he can fight the enemies of his great country.

As the skipper of the PT-109 in the hotly contested Solomon Islands, he saw and participated in violent enemy “action” when his plywood boat was cut in half by a Japanese destroyer during a night sea battle, and he was violently flung back on the bridge, ruining his back for the rest of his life. He gathered his crew around him, saving a badly burnt crew-mate by slipping a belt under his arms, putting the belt in his teeth, and towing the man to a nearby desert island. For his valor, he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corp Medal and the Purple Heart.

That’s a far cry from recent presidents who were outright draft-dodgers, or holding out in safe places like the Texas National Guard, or even hiding inside New York’s clubs like the infamous Studio 64, only battling STDs,  nymphos, and illicit drugs…

And we could contrast JFK’s honorable conduct with that of all others, because he had a principled head and heart to boot.

And during his short tenure in office, he was also rewarded towards the end, with a triumphant year, that ended up being the last year of his whirlwind life, because in October 1962, he faced down the Russians over their newly installed missiles in Cuba, and through sheer courage — manage to claw Victory from the gnawing teeth & fangs of defeat.

Indeed it was an honorable Victory and a Victory for Peace, because the US army brass, and the generals wanted nuclear war, but the President, who knew the ravages of war firsthand — managed a negotiated settlement which the whole world, saw as a win for the young President.

The first half of 1963 brought unparalleled success to Kennedy.

On June 11, 1963, he gave a nationally televised speech about Civil Rights where he called upon Americans to give equal rights to their fellow Negro citizens because “We are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the Scriptures and is as clear as the American Constitution.”

After Kennedy’s assassination, and during the next year of 1964, Lyndon B. Johnson his VP who because of Kennedy’s passing would become the President of the United States offered up the legislation to House and Senate, and passed the original JFK Civil Rights Legislative Bill, just as it was written by his predecessor, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1963.

On June 26, 1963, Kennedy also gave his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech in Berlin which built up the hopes of the population of Berlin while warning the Russians that their time would come.

August was to prove a momentous month for Kennedy, because on August 5th of 1963, he signed the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, which made the world safer for every human being, but just four days later tragedy struck when his infant son, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, died two days after his birth.

His wife, Mrs Jackie Kennedy, disappeared for months but reemerged in November for a two-day political tour of the Texas cities of San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth and Dallas.

JFK was greeted by fantastic crowds in the supposedly hostile territory. You can see the President obviously enjoying himself as he and the First Lady work the crowds. In his last speech, he issued a prescient warning saying we live in “a very dangerous and uncertain world.”

On the arrival of Air Force One at the ironically named Love Field in Dallas, the President and Mrs. Kennedy again worked the crowd, but, in the background there can be seen a Confederate flag stubbornly flying, reminding the world that not everyone approved of his Civil Rights agenda…

Twenty minutes later, the President was shot, and a shocked nation listened to Walter Cronkite, in tears, giving the terrible news of the assassination of the nation’s 35th president.

The image of Jackie Kennedy with a bloodstained pink suit, swearing in the VP inside the airplane as her husband’s coffin was ferried back to Washington, is engraved in our national memory, just as much as the image of people flying down from the World Trade Center of New York on 9/11.

Yet even at death, the dignity of the slain president brought this nation together and this was to be the finest hour of JFK because as he was martyred, he also manifested the anguish of our eternal fight against Evil and he rekindled the eternal Hope and Love that permeates America, as if he were alive to this day, because he had worked hard to uplift this nation, to give us compassionate agency, and push us forward, on the path to Greatness — right alongside a reluctant World.

And am here to tell you that he succeeded magnificently on all accounts, so much so that this new Presidential Candidate stakes my claim to the honor of service to my country solely because of JFK’s example in Courage, Confidence, and the Dignity of being the Chosen one.

That’s his legacy in our times and that is why more than half a century after his death, JFK is still remembered all around the world, and especially in the country which gave the world to him: Our beloved United States of America.

And so he gave his world and all of his tomorrows to these United States in return.

So we now we say once again: Go in Peace Mr President, and God Bless America.

And as I travel around the world on a fact finding journey, and as I realize how his prescient warning that we live in “a very dangerous and uncertain world” is far more true today than ever was in his time, I can’t help but being grateful for his commitment to making America the beacon of Democracy to the whole World and to all those people who aspire to live free of tyranny and evil…

And as I have recently come back from the epicenter of Islamic terrorism of Saudi-Wahabbi combine — I can tell you first hand what a dangerous and  how far gone this part of the world is, and how far they seek to export their terrorism into our country, via their so called educational scholarship system emanating from the Medresses of Saudi Arabia, where the 15 out of the 19 hijackers of 9/11 had come from.

And the Saudis use this system still today, to infiltrate our country, in order to be in America “legally” as so many other jihadists are today, in order to hurt us terribly once again, as they did on that other day of infamy and the second biggest tragedy in our Memory — the day the Twin towers of New York City fell after the hijackers brought down the airliners upon them…

It is time to stare down the Devil of Islamic fascism today, same as JFK did to the Soviet fascsts and drove them back to their lair… for a good long time until they withered away and died an ignoble death of their own accord.

So let us now take a page out of JFK’s playbook and deal with the Islamo-fascism of the fundamentalist political Islam, once and for all, because the time is nigh that we sorted this insanity out — now and forever.

And if this lot falls upon my shoulders now, same as it fell upon my grandfather’s shoulders to defeat the fascism of Hitlerism and national socialism — I shall not hesitate, I shall not shriek away, nor shall I neglect my duty to fight courageously in order to keep the lights on agains that evil darkness.

And that is a promise I intend to keep in the name of the slain President JFK — may the good Lord be my witness.


As an Entrepreneur, you create your vision, your Company, your Product and also your Work environment.

In a way You are acting as a child, because when you were a child, you knew yourself to be a co-creator of your universe, yet little by little you forgot who you were — especially as the adults, your parents and the teachers around you, taught you to limit your fantasy to the tactile empiricist environment.

But some of us persisted in wanting to co-create our Universe and they ended up being the best StartUp people out there, in what to me is the best example of a creative entrepreneurial life.

And it is this very life that demands that we take risks in order to imagine and design the future.

Calculated risks to be sure, is what we entrepreneurs take — but nonetheless these are risks that they may yield entrepreneurial fruits.

Or they may be risks that simply could enrich our own lives beyond the hullabaloo of everyday business and life.

Another benefit is that creative risk taking might turn our life upside down and thus might right the drifting ship of our soul, because when we make ourselves available for the inflow of Spirit, we accept not only the generative power but also our ability to overcome whatever stands in the way of our full aliveness.

You do not always have to suffer for your art.

You are not required to sacrifice everything for beauty.

The creative life can be quietly gratifying.

The thing is to allow ourselves to become a vessel for a work of art to come through and allow that work to guide our hands.

Once we do, we are assenting to a sacred adventure.

Because as you might recall — when you were a child, everything was about color. Now you pick black as your automatic font color, because that is the coin of the realm.

When you were a child, you traveled from place to place by dancing, and now you cultivate stillness, which is great, but you are forgetting how to move to the music of your soul. You can hardly even hear that inner music over the clamor of all your obligations.

Yes, you are worthy of art making. Dispense with the hierarchy in your head that silences your own creative voice.

It is not only your birthright to create, it is your true nature. The world will be healed when you take up your pen, draw with your brush, shake your body, play your lyre, and sing your heart out…

That will change your Life immediately.

The part of our brains with which we navigate the challenges of the everyday world is uneasy in the unpredictable sphere of art making. We cannot squeeze ourselves through the eye of the needle to reach the land of wild creativity whilst saddled to the frontal cortex, whose job it is to evaluate external circumstances and regulate appropriate behavior. Creativity has a habit of defying good sense.

I am not arguing, however, that the intellect has no place in the creative enterprise. The most intelligent people I know are artists and musicians. Their finely tuned minds are always grappling with some creative conundrum, trying to find ways to translate the music they hear in the concert hall of their heads into some intelligible form that others can grasp and appreciate.


Dr Churchill


Many of us seem to think we are too “old” to create something “new,” which is really too bad.

Although my writing is certainly a creative act, it has been a long time since I have expressed myself freely with color, movement, or sound.

If I’m honest, I would probably feel a little silly trying again at my age, but daily writing reminds me that I am the poorer for it — that is, if I don’t write at will each and every morning…

What joy, satisfaction, or even embodied presence are we missing out on, by our self-consciousness?

Having spent a few days now researching, meeting, necking and fact finding at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in the western region of the Red Sea of Saudi Arabia — I’ve seen the devastation that loss of focus can bring to any organization, especially one that is resplendent in comfort, luxury and easy living, securely couched by a big ass endowment from my friend the late King Abdullah…

Yet it now seems that the proverbial rug has been pulled from underneath the feet of all the wonderful and suave mandarins bidding time in this part of the desert.

Because time is nigh that the music has stopped, and the new King Salman, has asked to see results, and thus decide about the continued existence of this facility, or not– since after ten years of easy living, and not very much else going on, and certainly no commercial applications or earth shattering discoveries having come out of KAUST, he is feeling justified to pull the plug and let KAUST relapse to being a mirage in the Western desert like it’s brethren the “Economic City” nearby…

Screen Shot 2019-11-12 at 3.39.46 AM

And since our sincere colleagues seem to not hear the sound of silence and the tick-tock of the clock of history ticking, I decided to offer them a wake up call and a reality check, because no amount of “Impact Reports” from youthful Oxonians will mean anything to King Salman or his fairly ruthless son the Crown Prince, and his colleagues who are salivating about “repurposing” the XL endowment this great visionary research university has been blessed with by the old Founder King Abdullah — until they see the “True Benevolence” of scientific discovery coming out of these newly built and freshly repainted cloistered halls…

So I came here to propose to the wise and great, gray heads of the leadership of KAUST, like the President Mr Tony Chan, and the rest of the leadership like Mr Kevin Cullen, Mr Jason Roos, Dr Dillon Fritz, and Hattan Ahmed; to embrace a Globally significant project of developing a vaccine against the Extreme Antibiotic Resistant Tuberculosis, because this country needs this most urgently and the World doesn’t have anything to stem this looming pandemic…

If KAUST heeds my advise and accepts the challenge to invite me to cooperate with their scientists and laboratories to create this series of vaccines against MDR-TB and against XDR-TB, alongside the other variants of more ordinary Tuberculosis — we will be proving the greatest service to the Kingdom and to the World, and that one vaccine against the number one killer amongst all transmittable communicative diseases, will place Saudi Arabia on the map of Human Innovation.

Of course, this is a great gift and a glorious innovation on behalf of all humanity, but it will also be a tremendous glory for Saudi Arabia to be able to gift this vaccine to the world — all the while serving the benefit of it’s own citizens and also those of the West, because whenever you have a couple of million people congregating together each year — you are bound to have an extreme chance of developing an epidemic of XDR-TB since most of these people come from regions that already suffer the devastating disease.

Therefore I want to “open source” this vaccine and make it easily accessible and hugely affordable (Free) to all pilgrims who come for Hajj and Umrah and any other time to visit the Holly sites of the two mosques of Meccah and Medina, and inoculate all of the pilgrims upon arrival so we can stop the spread of the disease to all others pre-infection, and thus prevent the imminent pandemic.

Aside from that, the Saudi government will be given the right to manufacture the vaccines at large quantities, so that they can be exported as humanitarian aid to the world, thus increasing hundred fold the positive image of the kingdom for generations to come…

And also because from those to whom a lot has been given, a lot is expected from, in terms of philanthropy and generosity for the lesser ones, according to the Prophet and all the Faith leaders and teachers — we are eager to practice this gift economy toward the whole World.

So my dear friends and colleagues in KAUST and beyond, please come along and assist me in developing this most useful vaccine at KAUST, and I assure you that we will get two birds with one stone.

Because not only we shall save millions upon millions of human lives, from this killing epidemic of XDR-TB that is worse than the Ebola virus — but we will also regain the positive image of Saudi Arabia as a benefactor and a protector of the people who come to pray and traverse the tenets of their faith at the holiest places of Islam.

Methinks, that in the balance of success, the significance of this discovery made at KAUST, and our contribution for saving our people and by extension our civilization from another disease induced collapse — will surely also save KAUST and allow it to be maintained for the long haul of History as the House of Applied Wisdom…

Mind you, this is an asteroid impact that I am helping Humanity escape and the more power you put behind your wish to assist in this monumental duty — the greater value your contributions will gain in the eyes of God and People alike.

God Bless and God Speed in your decision to stand with me and execute the biz-plan to build this vaccine on the novel way that I dictate and share gladly with you…


Time is precious and scarce right now as this epidemic has already started unfolding and we have nothing to stop it.
