LIONEL PODCAST: There Will Come A Day When You’ll Apologize To Me.

You will apologize to me. You will beg my forgiveness. You will thank me for having had the unmitigated, inimitable courage to tell you the the truth. The real inconvenient truth. And not the anthropogenic causation nonsense that Fatso Gore spews. Since I first hit the airwaves in ’88, I’ve described an alternate universe, a parallel world of alternative news. Called the truth.

And if you apologize to me, then you will crawl over miles of broken glass to expiate your disrespect of and for these four. The quartet. Quick, what do you call them? Behind their back. Crazy, paranoid. Conspiracy nuts. Thanks. You only take flak when you’re over the target. And they’re so right it hurts. Absolutely spot on and on the money. And what they say shakes your sense of reality to the core.

When it hits you, and I hope it does sooner than later, how you’ve been lied to and moreover how the reality that’s been given you is anything but, you will undoubtedly think of me and others who’ve preached the truth. And think us.

After apologizing.

LIONEL PODCAST: Successive Habituation of American Sheeple

One of the most recurring points of my top of mind awareness — to the point I fear may approximate overkill — is how the American people have become so habituated to habituation. We’ve become used to, conditioned, worn down and worn out. And I’m sounding worn down and worn out myself as this message has been my recurring theme. But so critical is it that you understand it. Because the only way to be un-sheepled is to lose the yoke of sheeplehood.

My dream is simple. That one day our government fear us. Fear us totally and absolutely and positively. And not the other way around. I want Washington to tremble over the possibility that our wrath has been incurred. And that wrath will be exhibited by and channeled against a government through demonstrations, marches and reprisal voting. Through blogging, writing, Tweeting, texting . . . anything that limns just how royally PO’d we are.

How I want every elected official to squirm and panic over our power. Think about that for a while. It’s beautiful and possible and within our grasp.

And I was forwarded this most piquant piece, so listen carefully. Especially at the 1:12 mark. That dude. I know the voice. Sound familiar?

LIONEL PODCAST: Disobey! Now!

I love defiance and honor the defiant. The rebel, the maverick. The revolutionary. And getting on a talk radio show or blogging is one thing — and that’s certainly to be commended. But read the story of August Landmesser.

It was Nazi Germany in 1936, and a crowd of people had gathered in Hamburg to watch the launch of a navy training vessel. As hundreds raised their arms in unison in the Nazi salute, one man stood with his arms crossed, his eyes squinting at whoever was leading the salute.

It was not until 1991 that the man was identified as August Landmesser, a worker at the Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg, by one of his children, after she saw the photo in a German newspaper.

This week, the photo resurfaced once again after a blog that was launched to facilitate relief efforts after the March 11, 2011, Japanese earthquake and tsunami shared it on its Facebook page. As of this writing, the photo has nearly 25,000 shares.

Landmesser apparently had a very personal reason not to make the salute.

While he is believed to have been a member of the Nazi Party from 1931 to 1935, he was later expelled from the party for marrying a Jewish woman, Irma Eckler, according to Fasena, an educational site on the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.

After Landmesser fathered two daughters with Irma, he was sent to jail for “dishonoring the race.” Irma is believed to have been detained by the Gestapo in the Fuhlsbüttel police prison in Hamburg. Their children were separated.

Landmesser was discharged from prison in 1941 but was soon drafted to serve in the war. He was later declared missing in action and believed dead.

In 1996, one of Landmesser’s daughters, Irene, wrote a family history in German, saying she hoped to share the story of how her family had been torn apart.

Sixteen years later, that story is spreading across Facebook, thanks to the Internet’s habit of rediscovering historical treasures. Much like last week’s renewed interest in an ex-slave’s 1865 letter to his master, the response to Landmesser’s photographic lesson speaks to an Internet audience hungry for stories of moral heroism.

Read the entire article.

Before you get too smug, remember that in our country, the land of the free and whatever, we had anti-miscegenation laws that carried felony charges. How insane is that? What’s more, it persisted until 1967 when the Supremes ended this lunacy. Think of it: under those laws Bobby DeNiro would be cracking rocks upstate.

And while we’re at it, please enjoy my indictment of the Kennedy myth. The deification and apotheosis of JFK disgusts me. With frothing and hyper-salivating Chris Matthews types, panting and cooing to all things “Camelot,” the reality of this boor has been all but distorted, manufactured and imagined. If you believe Mimi Alford as I do, she was tricked, seduced and constructively raped. Ask not . . . my arse!

LIONEL PODCAST: The Orchidectomy of the American People

The American people are worn down and worn out. They care about nothing. They don’t react, think, anger. Nada. Nothing bothers them. They couldn’t care less about anything I or anyone says warning them about virtually anything for that matter. They’re gutless, spineless and soulless. Learned helplessness, baby. Big time.

Their refrain is simple. Leave us alone. Let us be. We’re busy watching TV and the Giants or whatever. There’s nothing we can do anyway. And when we do care or purport to care it’s for parochial concerns and the like. Our politics are team sports. We play personalities. And don’t tell us the left-right paradigm’s an illusion.

And if you dare to bring them up to speed. the huddled and befuddled masses, that is, anent news or information that should frighten them and shake their pitiful worldview, you’re labeled a conspiracy theorist. And by the way, with that thinking you might want to join forces with Cass Sunstein and stamp out unapproved and unofficial thought through cognitive infiltration.

Enjoy.

LIONEL PODCAST: I Think Therefore I’m Guilty

To think. To critically think. To utilize issue analysis, focused dissection, and subject parsing are absolutely essential. I’ve said it before, thinking will be against the law. You laugh? Thinking certain things can get you arrested. Can you say hate crimes? Bias crimes. You do realize the implications I trust. When you take a crime that’s already cognizable at law, pair it with constitutionally protected speech — albeit hateful and venomous, but protected — you’ve got a hate crime.

So enjoy free thought and what’s left of free speech as long as you can. There’s already a move to punish certain ideas and articulated thought, viz. “conspiracy theories” and arguments against anthropogenic causation models. Ask Cass Sunstein. Ask him about cognitive infiltration. G’head. I dare you.

Think.

LIONEL PODCAST: You’ve Been Brainwashed. We All Have.

You’ve indeed been brainwashed. And it’s easy to see for yourself. Ask yourself this question: Do you support a candidate? With the exception of Ron Paul — and I will plead guilty to an absolute bias in favor of his platform — if you believe anything that, say, Obama or Mitt say, you’re brainwashed. You’re absolutely contaminated with and by their balderdash. Just this morning I was listening to Obama apparatchik Rachel Maddow of MSDNC, and I swear to Zeus it was a campaign ad for Hopey. ‘Twas unbelievable. Then if you switch over to Fox, you can still hear my pal Sean Hannity waxing nostalgic about Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan! What year is this again?

You’re awash in the wash of the brain. You’re so immersed and bathed in this nonsense that you can’t even tell what’s what. And that’s the nature of deception. That’s the nature of spin, deception and Orwellian Newspeak. You’re provided with a sanitized, washed and rinsed, dry cleaned message that yet again speaks with and to the illusion of the left-right paradigm.But don’t feel bad. I was a victim too. Just like you. I was there. I know exactly what you’ve been through. But I wised up. You can do it too. And it’s hard at first. It’s tough abandoning very provincial mindset you had. It’s tough. Really tough. But I’m here to help.

So there you have it.

LIONEL PODCAST: Death to the Republic Is Nigh! (Louie Nye?)

So, why is this so controversial? Why? Because it’s true. But it’s not just Obama, it’s any globalist POTUS. You’d have to be in a coma not to notice the Constitution bring shredded at an incredible rate.

Think about it. The NDAA, Patriot Act, signing statements, PDDs, Executive Orders, the TSA and Big Sis, drone and UAV hit lists targeting American citizens, And let’s throw in the Fed for good measure. And this is offensive?! And the story’s beautiful: the con law prof now as commander-in-chief. What a work! What an absolutely beautiful work.

Bruce Fein, noted libertarian constitutional lawyer and civil libertarian, drafted an article of impeachment against President Obama over his attack on Libya, throwing down a legal gauntlet that could be picked up by some Congressional Republicans. Fein, a former Reagan administration official in the Department of Justice and chairman of American Freedom Agenda writes in his 15-page argument of Obama’s course inter alia that “Barack Hussein Obama has mocked the rule of law, endangered the very existence of the Republic and the liberties of the people, and perpetrated an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.” Fein suggests that war will be Obama’s sepulcher. [Full article]

President Barack Obama’s political sepulcher will be war. His extinguishment as a political comet could have been avoided if he had respected the exclusive constitutional responsibility of Congress to commence war.

To defeat fifty al Qaeda in Afghanistan, he has deployed tens of thousands of troops at an annual cost exceeding $120 billion to support a corrupt and tribal government devoid of popular legitimacy. President Hamid Karzai was elected with at least one million fraudulent votes. He is seeking to oust scores of parliamentarians to accommodate his own toadies. The signature of the now-failed Kabul Bank was a secret multi-million dollar, no document loan to political favorites of the Karzai administration. Justice is for sale.

President Obama has inflated the danger of al Qaeda manifold to justify his exorbitant fool’s errand. If his troop to al Qaeda militant ratio in Afghanistan had been employed during World War II in fighting Germany and Japan, the United States would have deployed 3.5 billion military personnel abroad, vastly more than the entire United States population.

Enjoy. Think. And enjoy thinking.

LIONEL PODCAST: Facebook = NSA = CIA = NWO

I must share this with you. This was a most angry letter from a warmer, a global warming and/or climate change nutcase. And as letters go, it’s one of the best. Snarky, rebarbative and nasty. I’m his bête noire and his poison prose brilliantly addresses such. It’s great. Great, indeed. And please contact me at lionel@lionelmedia.com if you think you can top this. Please, I love hearing from you.

Now, the letter. He (I presume it was a he) was most upset over my suggestions that the anthropogenic causation models pushed by Al Gore and his Maurice Strong minions in order to establish carbon taxing and the like were bogus. He never listened to what I said. He just responded via a Pavlovian obeisance to his religion. The religion of the warmer/changer. Now it’s my term to be a prick: this feller’s clueless. Missing the entire point. If I thought that Rick Perry was shilling for Gardasil and Merck (as he was) that’s not the same as saying that Gardasil was a dangerous product (as it is) or that vaccines don’t work. Goober here missed the point.

But this well-intended but clueless Gomer yet again shows how people confuse a distrust of the notion of using carbon trading as a means to address perceived anthropogenic warming causation with a basis to initiate carbon trading.

You have gone off the deep end Lionel, and proven yourself to be an ignorant jackass. The science supports anthropogenic causes for climate change. The influence of the sun is a factor, but not as significant as human activity in recent decades. This isn’t just Al Gore talking, it’s science.

I used to love your show Lionel, but in your isolation you have become the audio equivalent of Howard Hughes, increasingly paranoid and out of touch with reality.

Please enjoy today’s podcast. It covers myriad issues as you can imagine. Please note also my indictment against the arrest of kids today for the most mindlessly of trivial reasons. What ever happened to common sense?

Sincerely yours,

Howard Hughes (increasingly paranoid and out of touch with reality)

LIONEL PODCAST: Political Heresy & Apostasy

The attempts to make the GOP primary process interesting has been lost on me altogether. When you understand that it’s rigged, perhaps you’ll understand why. And this mindless, vapid analysts! My Gawd, how tough is that? Post hoc rationalization based on the systematic and systemic internal bias of the media machine. Wanna hear Obama boot licking and fawning, pathetically obsequious Pavlovian obeisance? Look no further than MSDNC. Want the official platform of the RNC? Faux News awaits.

If, on the other hand, you want something so devoid of substance, so wanting for the slightest indicium of relevance, then it’s CNN for you. There motto should be “News for those allergic to position, who eschew conviction and the few who even find vanilla piquant.”

In this podcast I try to establish my political position without giving way to unnecessary taxonomy. And in a most unexpected route, I assume the position of Jesus and take the startling position that JC and I would probably be on board. I take what’s loosely referred to as a libertarian position and follow a most simple approach: leave me alone.

LIONEL PODCAST: The Asylum From the Psychotic’s Point of View

Today was one of the most amazing news days that provided a seemingly endless supply of mind-boggling nonsense. The citizen me screams in disgust; the news decoder me can’t believe the panoply of material. And as I discuss herein, throughout the entire disquisition, I speak in absolute amazement over what’s happening. What’s happening unfettered. No one’s stopping it. No one’s saying anything about it.

  • A hate and bias arsonist blames it on the bossa nova and violent videos. Where’ve we heard this before? Would someone please once and for all learn the distinction between correlation and cause? For the love of Pete! And I can’t believe I just wrote that.
  • Sunday’s Super Bowl will highlight the DHS’s full frontal NSSE (National Special Security Event) status. What does that mean? Simple: every needle-phallused Barnie Fife will get to load up with riot gear, Kevlar and that look of Señor Badass and walk the walk showing the American sheeple what they’ve got to look forward to should they deign to question the absolute authority of your new and improved jackbooted Robocop.
  • A 6 year-old kid jacked up by the school fuzz for playing tag and errantly touching a classmate’s leg. You’d swear that school officials would know that this idiocy is a sure ticket to having your name emblazoned on every blog in the country as the biggest idiot on the planet. How many examples of hypersensitive sexual priggishness can the public take?

What happened to us? Somebody tell me.
