LIONEL PODCAST: This Time I Want Improvement, Not Just Change.

My friend, if you subscribe to these podcasts, thank you. If you don’t then (a) you’re not my friend and (b) you’re a cheap bastard. That being said, let’s think, shall we?

All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome. (George Orwell)

It’s tough being me. Most of the time I feel like screaming but instead, I use my handy dandy digital recorder, upload it and charge reasonably for it. I’ve given up on anything resembling news reportage on the MSM network but today I tried to watch Morning Joe with Meager Brzezinski, fille to globalist Don Corleone, Zbig. Repeat: I tried.

To understand this complex world you have to retool, reprogram and regroup. Your thinking patterns must be rewired. Forget the left-right paradigm; it is but an illusion. Use MSM as a guide as what to avoid. Think of it/them as a confused bloodhound. Go the opposite direction of where I instructs. Embrace foreign and alternative media. Understand that anything the government tells you is not necessarily the truth but that which it wants you to believe. Be conversant with history as it is the script, not the record. POTUS is irrelevant in the global schematics. We are but a member state of an international global consortium who ceded its jurisdiction long, long ago.

Let’s sit back and think. Whattaya say?

LIONEL PODCAST: Let Me Explain What #OWS Should Be Talking About. Again!

The refrain seems to consist only of “Who’s behind the OWS movement?” That’s it. An amazing (non)range of inquiry, don’t you think? Folks have a — pardon the crudeness of this phrase, but it’s so spot on — they’ve a hard-on for OWS protestors. Benny “Bugsy” Bernanke and the Gambino Family of private central banksters gave $16T ($16,000,000,000,000.00) secretly to US banks, corporations and foreign banks and not a peep from the fatso, bigmouth blaggards who rail against OWS demonstrators. Demonstrators, by the by, whose tireless and brave demonstrations will unilaterally benefit everyone. Including the Archie Bunkers beached on the couch cursing the motivated and involved.

The questions that should be asked are contained herein.

LIONEL PODCAST: DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS!

Yeah, you heard me. Don’t listen to this podcast. Trust me, it’s not for you. It’s something you’re not familiar with and frankly are ill-equipped to handle. I’m sorry to be this blunt but it’s true.

Take the issue of Dihydrogen Monoxide as referenced in the graphic supra.  It’s a subject of great concern to me and, let’s face it, you simply don’t care.

Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to billions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are listed as follows.

  • Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
  • Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
  • Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
  • DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
  • Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
  • Contributes to soil erosion.
  • Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
  • Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
  • Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
  • Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
  • Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
  • Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
  • Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.

I can’t blame you. You’re busy, right?

LIONEL PODCAST: So, Who Exactly Is The Enemy? Somebody Tell Us Sheeple.

David Dees’s art knocks me out. My reaction is visceral. And to his artwork as well. (That was a joke.) I will defend my reaction and attraction to his art because that’s precisely what art is designed to evoke. And the pairing of graphic arts and political messaging is as powerful and critical as it gets. Depending, of course, what it is. (That was a joke too.)

Despite my pronounced contrarian nature and hard-wired skepticism, I don’t think Americans are stupid or ill-equipped to grasp the complexity of reality and/or actuality. It’s just that for so long and for so many years and without surcease, you (yes, you) have been so habituated and acclimated to adulterated and filtered news and reality data that you’ve lost any taste buds for truth. You’ve become used to it. You’re ability to differentiate the truth and falsity of presented news has been shunted. Desensitized. Killed. You’re handicapped. News blind. Reality dyslexic. Through a cruel natural selection, the insensate you has been developed. Sad.

Voltaire said that in the case of news, we should always wait for the sacrament of confirmation. And we’re still waiting for much of the news.

But together, you and I will push for the truth.

LIONEL PODCAST: #OcuppyWallStreet Is Exposing Something Sheeple Are Too Stupid To Understand

There must be clarity in demands that #OcuppyWallStreet protestors make. In fact, there must be demands. Period. Here are mine. Take note, citizens.

Lionel’s Demands: His Big 5

  • The immediate cancellation or moratorium of and on student loans and their enforcement
  • An immediate suspension of and moratorium on all home and primary residence foreclosures (especially so-called “fraudclosures”) using vehicles akin and/or analogous to The Frazier–Lemke Farm Bankruptcy Act and its hybrids
  • The nationalization of the Federal Reserve (just saying this aloud is tantamount to porn to me)
  • The implementation of a Tobin Tax or Wall Street Sales Tax or Robin Hood Tax (and variations thereof)
  • The immediate cessation and termination of all foreign wars no matter what euphemism is used, e.g. kinetic military action, enforcement of no-fly zones, NATO support, name your poison.

Harkening back to Thomas Urquhart in 1652, “[W]hich churlish and tenacious humor hath made many that were not acquainted with any else of that country, to imagine all their compatriots infected with the same leprosie of a wretched peevishness, whereof those quomodocunquizing clusterfists and rapacious varlets have given of late such cannibal-like proofs, by their inhumanity and obdurate carriage towards some … .”

Hear! Hear!

LIONEL PODCAST: #OccupyWallStreet For Dummies

I love the following quotes. And I can’t verify either. But that doesn’t invalidate their sagacity.

“The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. ”  — T-Jeff O.G.

“Be very careful not to believe every quote on the Internet.” — Abraham Lincoln

Fundamental to the economic calamity that our great country suffers from — and you ain’t seen nothing yet — is our Federal Reserve central bank, a central private bank with unlimited mysterious powers. The Federal Reserve, as federal as federal Express. A central bank that can counterfeit to its heart’s content, that answers to no one, that is subject to absolutely no oversight. A private central bank that acts in concert with its international globalist counterparts: the UN, World Bank, IMF and WTO. It’s part of a latticework that few understand and even fewer care anything about.

In this podcast I provide a rudimentary, step-by-step review of our financial system and superstructure and suggest how #OccupyWallStreet might tailor its demands accordingly. And that will be an improvement because so far, they have no demands.

LIONEL PODCAST: Hey, Ted Baxter, Do These #OccupyWallStreet Protestors Look Like Hippies To You?

In an absolute and deliberate attempt on the part of the Ted Baxter sockpuppet media to smear #OccupyWallStreet protestors and the OWS movement itself, there seems to be an absolute insistence on portraying its participants as the prototypical dirty hippie. Moreover the delusional, wayward idealized dupe. I ask you, do these WWII vets look like hippies to you?

They’ve no interest in the causes of revolt, grievances, nothing. And what’s funny is that most media types are victims of a hyper-globalization that will one day ruin them as well. So what are they so dismissive about? It’s like the guy in the back of a sinking boat laughing at the captain.

LIONEL PODCAST: Face It, You Know Nothing About #OccupyWallStreet Or Anything For That Matter.

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist is that a pessimist has more information. I don’t know who said that, but it’s brilliant. And if a pessimist is armed, the optimist is unarmed and/or bereft of facts. The #OccupyWallStreet movement is analyzed through a prism via a spectrum that varies from person to person.

What the movement entails is a valid and bona fide protest against a system that’s riddled with and by abject corruption. A system that’s in effect a rapacious globalist asset-stripping systemic and metastatic cancer. The protestors’ signs may be simple, their message idealistic. But they’re absolutely correct.

They must be on to something. You only take flak when you’re over the target.

LIONEL PODCAST: If You Truly Knew How Stupid Most People Were You’d Blow Your Brains Out.

People create a reality that comports and fits with their worldview. Their prism determines that which they want to see and believe. People lie to themselves and force the realities of the world to fit a forced and conformed reality. Translation: It’s all a lie and everyone’s a liar.

I’m in the distraction business. Just like the media. I’m the first to admit it. The consuming public is the crying baby. I jiggle keys to distract. Ironically, I distract with (not the truth per se but) an alternative view of alternative news in an alternative medium. Groovy, man.

The impuissant media always distort. As ordered.

Exhibit A: #OccupyWallStreet. It seems that the corporate-controlled Ted Baxter sock puppet media have determined a priori that the protestors are baseless and foolish. We’ll see about that. So will history.

LIONEL NEW: Why Most Things Suck & Other Observations

There is nothing more fun than thought exploration. You start at Point A, lock and load and fire at will. Thoughts careen and carom. You end up sometimes in places you never thought you’d be. Places so dark and murky, you’re almost scared. Like Lakeland, Fawda. I express thought like expressing a purulent wound. Thoughts ooze and exude, they seep, trickle and drip. I’d better stop now.

Søren Kierkegaard reminded us that “[g]eniuses are like thunderstorms. They go against the wind, terrify people, cleanse the air.” You are that thunderstorm, my friend. And it all begins with observation.

But first, let me remind you of an intrepid lot whose cause is being marginalized. By a crew of criminally ignorant misanthropes who hate in some strange way those who’ve the intrepidity and gumption to speak up and out. And that’s tragic.
