Evaluation of Vlad (Quick Limerick)

`

Mental illness can be so subliminal
Heads of State shun Headshrinkers’ regiminal
For instance, Vlad’s addled brain
Drives him to ravage Ukraine
Join the ranks of rank, savage War Criminal

Carlson’s Carnage

`

The irony of free speech / free press rights is that, when the bereft of all human decency, betrayers of Democracy exercise… correction… exploit them, egregiously so, they risk exterminating the very document that guarantees these 1st Amendment protections.

Case in point…

The Fox Network’s talking head / head case, one Tucker Carlson, has become a lump of malleable clay / pliable play dough in the hands of one Vladimir Putin, the strong-arm, who has not even needed to utilize his iron fist grip to facilely fashion that Tucker into Russia’s propagandist newbie.

Indeed, as I type and you read these words, the utterances of Putin’s patsy / protégé are being exploited in an attempt to [1] firm up Russian troops’ flaccid morale and [2] demoralize Ukraine’s indefatigable freedom fighters.

The very notion of that verbal venture, exemplifies just how unconscionable, unforgivable and un-American Carlson’s screechy screeds actually are; how such stench fails to pass the protected free speech sniff test.

After all, what that hack, Tucker, is up to is akin to shouting “FIRE” in a crowded theater; where no such conflagration exists; an action that’d absolutely result in needless injuries and fatalities.

More to the point…

Traitor Tucker is now shouting, “FIRE!” within Putin’s Ukraine theater of war; pointlessly perpetrating and perpetuating carnage and property damage; and as such, he’s become complicit in Putin’s crimes against humanity.

Tucker Carlson now has, on his own hands, the indelible blood red stain of Putin’s pointless war.

Seeing how, nowadays, nowhere within this Earthly realm, do right wing extremists ever get raked over the coals (re their treachery), perhaps, someday, he’ll be invited to attend Beelzebub’s “barbecue” (no asbestos attire allowed)?

Ghoulish Grave Craver ~ Haiku

`

With Russia’s / Ukraine’s
Half Million known Covid graves
Ghoul Putin craves more

`

The latest Roylab stats indicate that Russia’s (known) Covid-19 death toll stands at 356,281 while Ukraine’s equals 106,485. Factoring in the tactics of Vladimir Putin’s propagandists (the super-spreaders of fake news), it’d not be a shocker to discover Russian fatalities to be strikingly higher. By now, one would think that the pandemic would’ve caused that tyrant to grow weary of death, but, ALAS, tyrant is the operative word. All of which, obviously, renders him, utterly incapable of thinking in a humane, rational, thoughtful manner; hence Vladimir Putin’s unwarranted / Ukraine invasion.

Fortune Cookie Blog: Oceans of Tears

What a crying shame it is, that there are never supply chain breakdowns;
no shortages when it comes down to the worldwide distribution of hatred;
the root of all evil; the relentless driving force behind bloody warfare, gun
violence, police brutality, terrorist attacks, insurrection, vile acts of torture,
enslavement, homophobia, fascism, racism, casteism, sexism and ageism.
Let’s make this New Year the moment we start drying our oceans of tears.

The Worst Defense is a Bad Offense

`

The Minneapolis Police Department’s (now ex) executioner, Derek Chauvin, is trotting out quite the defense. He’s pointing the finger of blame squarely at his police training / upbringing.

Uh huh.

As if what? Society is now supposed to give him some breathing room?

You cannot possibly be serious! We are discussing a bad cop who, back on 05/25/2020 refused to give breathing room to his arrestee.

Since when is deadly force (to flesh that out Chauvin’s knee crushing throat suffocation modus operandi), ever condoned, especially when it ends up with the needless death of an unarmed, handcuffed, motionless, not resisting arrest, groaning “Please, I can’t breath”, pinned prone to the pavement man!

George Floyd WAS that man.

Chauvin is saying what? At that point, he and his cop accomplices could not deliver Floyd to the police station; where he’d be processed, granted due process and, most importantly of all, STILL BE ALIVE?

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

U.S. Constitution • 6th Amendment Due Process Protections

In effect what we have, here, is tantamount to Chauvin deadpanning:

“I was just following orders.”

Hmm, now where oh where have we heard that pathetic excuse before?

I know! That’d be at the International Criminal Court, The Hague, Netherlands; where the forces of good never take too kindly to the forces of evil; e.g., a power-tripping cop committing a crime against humanity.

Most assuredly, in that venue, there’d never ever be anyone feeling jocular about anyone whose knee crushed the jugular.

And Derek Chauvin IS that so-called man.

Colbert’s Unvarnished Truth

“After discussing the supremely unsettling footage of Rudy Giuliani in the new “Borat” movie, Stephen Colbert takes a moment to encourage Americans who might be considering keeping Donald Trump in office for four more years to remember the awful cruelties his administration has inflicted on families at the Southern border.”

Clip and Set-Up courtesy of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert YouTube Channel • Oct 21, 2020 • 687,771 views

If you’re ISO the embodiment of the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, CBS Late Show’s Stephen Colbert is your man.

Assuming I’ve encoded our featured video vignette correctly, it’ll start up at 7:47. Time permitting, rewind to check out the entire presentation, too. Yep, it’s that good!

Colbert’s commentary calls out Donald J. Trump’s bigoted, barbarous family separation policy along the U.S. / Mexican Border, which had been enforced, as early as 2017, by his merciless, overbearing Border Patrol agents. Their typical M.O. had been (likely still is) to [1] wrest crying babies and children from their asylum seeking parents’ cradling / clutching arms and [2] imprison these young innocents in cages.

As if such traumatization and dehumanization weren’t bad enough already, we now learn there still are 545 children, who’ve yet to be reunited with their families. And that, indeed, is in flat out defiance of a federal court judge’s order. Putting that into perspective, Colbert points out that 545 kids could fill 8 school buses. Echoing my righteous indignation, said he:

“Trump says and does a lot of dumb things, but we should never let his stupidity, overshadow the fact that he’s also a heartless monster, who must be driven from office and eventually dragged, in manacles, before The Hague.”

Stephen Colbert • October 21, 2020 Late Show Monologue

Most assuredly we must make an example of deplorable Donald and his wretched henchmen; hold them all fully accountable for their crimes against humanity.

Only then can we enjoy a renaissance; recommit to our core principles, re-shine our homeland’s tarnished image; relight America’s beacon.

How, ironic, indeed, that Donald J. Trump, et al, once behind bars, would experience far more humane treatment than the children they had caged.

Let’s contemplate the enormity of Harry S. Truman’s
Amorality, Audacity, Barbarity, Insanity and Stupidity.
His Nuking of Hiroshima and beholding his wholesale
slaughter of humanity stirred neither second thoughts
nor qualms of conscience re his Nuking of Nagasaki!

The Cathedral Bells Toll For A More Equitable World

During this very month of August, back in 1619, two slave ships transported more than 30 African women and men from the area now known as Angola. Once they arrived in North America, they were promptly sold into servitude when bereft of conscience, English colonists paid for them with food and supplies.

On this very Sunday at 3:00 p.m. EDT, Washington National Cathedral’s Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith plans to ring their 12-ton Bourdon Funeral Bell. Said he…

“400 years after the first slaves were brought to this continent against their will, we ring it to both honor and recognize their strength in the face of injustice and dehumanization, and to work toward a better, more just and more equitable world moving forward.”

From my perspective, I deem it necessary to expand this memorial… to honor… to never forget… the estimated 600,000 more slaves who followed them… as well as the the 37+ Million African-Americans who, even today, in ways both subtle and flagrant, have never been, truly, fully liberated… have never, actually, achieved racial parity.

Other American houses of worship, nationwide, also plan to ring their bells today… and as my local NPR radio affiliate reports… some of them plan to extend Rev. Hollerith’s duration from one minute to four. In other words…

1 minute = 100 years / 4 minutes = 400 years

On a technical note: The above video’s total time = 19:28. That breaks down in this manner…

0:00 thru 4:02 = bells / 4:02 to 15:25 = songs / 15:25 thru 19:28 = more bells (4 more minutes)

How long you choose to listen and meditate is a decision I totally leave up to you. I am posting this video some two hours earlier than the 3:00 p.m. designated start time because I know it will take time for folks to find my site.

My parting sentiment…

The denial of human dignity, freedom and equality was… still is… and shall forever be a crime against humanity.
