QUESTION: Ignorance or stupidity, what’s worse? Take your time and think about this one. But don’t take too much time.
Time’s up. The latter, of course. Ignorance can be cured via knowledge. Organic trumps everything. One more: What’s worse: A lack of learning (ignorance again) or critical thinking? Again, the latter. The inability to understand how to evaluate the issues of the world through a systematic analysis will result in, yet again, most people unable to grasp and handle the issues that citizens face daily. The former can be corrected via . . . well, learning. And what you’ll see by way of this installment of thought, I trust, is that we suffer from a fundamentally tragic and horrid lack of being able to apply issue analysis and evaluation as to critical issues. Stated differently, we are a country of profound idiots and Boeotians, loudmouths and bullshit artists contaminated by an inability to grasp the most basic of concepts yet possessed with the most overdeveloped senses of self-importance and delusions of grandeur. Ahem.
Take abortion. Please.
Recently this buzzkill issue of intellectual discourse hit the headlines with Alabama joining a wave of states seeking to reverse, dismantle and dilute Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973). You remember Roe, the hideously written 1973 SCOTUS decision that “legalized” abortion nationwide. Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi and Ohio and have likewise approved bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, theoretically possible as early as the sixth week of pregnancy. As you can imagine this has inspired the usual rancor, anger and incoherent screams of whatever from teams and passels and legions of the seriously concerned, the absolutely confused and the constitutionally nescient.
First, calm down. Take a deep breath and take it easy. Are you ready? Good. Now listen. A woman’s “right” to an abortion will never be repealed under any circumstances. Ever. Repeat. EVER. The notion of America returning to the clothes hanger, back alley days of horror will not be revisited. Roe is safe via stare decisis, especially after it withstood and was emboldened by Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992). Remember, infanticide’s another story.
Full disclosure. I’m pro-choice. Whatever that means. I don’t believe a woman or her physician should ever face the lunacy of arrest and incarceration over a pregnancy termination procedure. And yes, it’s murder. Well, not murder per se as murder involves the unlawful taking and cessation of a life. But it’s a human life and this is different. And, yes, AGAIN it’s a human life. It’s not a duck or quasi-human or an almost a human or an undeveloped human, it’s a human nonetheless. And this human falls within a category of existence and standing that might not be readily identifiable using the usual taxonomy and morphological or developmental nomenclature. It’s a human. Whether a clump of cells, blastocyst, embryo or fetus. It’s a human. But a human that’s growing within its host mother. A mother with concomitant “rights.” Now, if you can’t get your head around that, sorry. It’s the law, it’s science, it’s reality and all the newsletters and yammering won’t change that. But that human status does not preclude, sadly, its obliteration. Within limitations, that is. Call it what you want, that’s what we’re talking about.
You can euphemize abortion all you want just as we do war when we call it collateral damage, friendly fire or even engaging the enemy. It’s still war and death and abortion is the destruction of a human life that will remain legal. Period. Within certain circumstances.
Now let’s return to the Constitution and what it actually says, Roenotwithstanding. There’s no “right” to an abortion. Did you hear me? No right. The XIV Amendment proscribes and prohibits the deprivation of life, liberty and property without due process of law. Therefore it states clearly that said deprivations are legal and allowable and permissible constitutionally so long asthey are performed via a process that is due, viz. notice and the opportunity to be heard. The underlying theory of Roe was a convoluted reading of Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 479 (1965), and Douglas’s “penumbras” and “emanations.” This is the basis and the gravamen of the argument that states that substantive due process is a fiction, illogical and without merit. Stated differently, legislate it away or mandate it through legislation, name it. But the idea that the Constitution guarantees the right to abort, marry, have sex, smoke weed, whatever, is simply insane, wrong, specious and without merit.
That being said, nobody asked me or you because the case is moot. That’s the law and that’s the law that shall remain as such.
But remember. A woman’s “right” to an abortion will never be repealed under any circumstances. Ever. Repeat. EVER.
Now, ninth month infanticide is another story. A story we’ll address later.

The Roseanne Barr Interviews. I prefer to call them sessions. You must watch this high summit of sentience. Roseanne = America’s sweetheart = America’s mom. TV pioneer and visionary and now the inadvertent posterchild for fascistic censorship over the most insignificant of tweet bleats in the annals of recorded history. Please click here for INTERVIEW ONE and INTERVIEW TWO. But make sure you’re sitting down and that family members and caretakers are standing by once the paroxysms of laughing fits hit.
What the hell are they spraying? And the issue whose nonchalance confounds me to no end is that which is commonly and mistakenly referred to as #chemtrails. Please, focus on the nomenclature that’s critical and accurate. I commend to you my latest and best video interview with the inimitable and ineffable Dane Wigington of that you must watch above and first of all. And please forward it accordingly.

The Lionel Interviews: RIP Stanton Friedman, Preeminent Ufologist — The Man Who Gave Us Roswell

September 14, 2015

November 29, 2017

Stanton Friedman, the famed UFO researcher based in Fredericton, has died. Friedman was returning from a speaking engagement in Columbus, Ohio, when he died suddenly at the Toronto Pearson Airport on Monday night, according to his family. He was 84. A nuclear physicist by training, Friedman had devoted his life to researching and investigating UFOs since the late 1960s. He was credited with bringing the 1947 Roswell Incident — the famous incident that gave rise to theories about UFOs and a U.S. military coverup — back into the mainstream conversation. [CBC]

He’s the man. Stanton T. Friedman. Yep, he’s the one. Before I happened upon him and his work, I never gave UFOs and ufology a moment’s consideration. To date, I’ve never seen anything that I thought was UFO’ish. No close encounters of any kind. To me they were the stuff of urban legend mythology and folklore. Like most of the paranormal and (I respectfully submit) religion. Oh, I laughed with the masses, dismissing the notion of spacefarers as romantic insanity. Baseless hallucinations and prosaic wishful thinking. The argument as I saw it went something like this. (And note, every one of these points is addressed and dissected and refuted an debunked ad seriatim in the accompanying podcast).

And even if they could travel at breakneck speeds, the Andromeda Galaxy 2.5 million light-years from Earth in the Andromeda constellation. That means to travel there (or from there) at the speed of light it would take 2.5 million years. And we or they can’t travel at or near the speed of light. Right?

Most sightings of UFOs are weather balloons, swamp gas or the planet Venus. Right? And don’t give me this bunkum about alien abductions. They’re all hallucinating or want to seize upon the opportunity to cash in. Not to mention, all these double wide denizens, these Junior Samples overall-sporting hayseeds, redneck and corn pone loons all claiming to be anally probed by some critters. Their claims have never been validated, right?

Enter Friedman. Then it happened. One day, years ago, thanks to the system of tubes known as the Internets, I happened upon the data. Through and courtesy of Mr. Friedman. Mounds, miles, piles, loads, tons, reams of data, articles, studies, research, lectures, books. Every conceivable form of investigation you can and could imagine. From around the world and time immemorial. Historic, anecdotal, eye-witness, documented, recorded and duly noted. Name it. The information was staggering. Brobdingnagian, an evidence colossus. And at the helm, stewarding his students through the labyrinth of fact versus fiction was and is the inimitable Stanton Friedman, who’s inspired me for years. I was so honored to finally speak with this giant. The (Extra)terrestrial titan.

Thus spake Stan. Here’s the Friedman manifesto. And I quote.

The evidence is overwhelming that Planet Earth is being visited by intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft. In other words, SOME UFOs are alien spacecraft. Most are not.

The subject of flying saucers represents a kind of Cosmic Watergate, meaning that some few people in major governments have known since July, 1947, when two crashed saucers and several alien bodies were recovered in New Mexico, that indeed SOME UFOs are ET. As noted in 1950, it’s the most classified U.S. topic.
None of the arguments made against conclusions One and Two by a small group of debunkers such as Carl Sagan, my University of Chicago classmate for three years, can stand up to careful scrutiny. The Flying Saucer story is the biggest story of the millennium: visits to Planet Earth by aliens and the U.S. government’s cover-up of the best data (the bodies and wreckage) for over fifty years.

Just think of it. Many have. The idea of living entities, non-human, most likely vastly and inconceivably superior, a million or billion years or senior. Extraterrestrial, extrastellar, or (better) extradimensional. Able to traverse the universal gaps and divides enlisting free energy, antigravitic propulsion, fusion perhaps, Tesla energy. All while we burn rocket fuel. Remember Mother Earth is 4.5B years old. That’s 4500M years. If another planet were a mere 4501M years old, they’d have a million year jump on us. In 66 years from 1903 to 1969 we went from Kitty Hawk to Neil Armstrong and the pre-Jacko moonwalk. Imagine a million year or billion year jump. Awe, baby. Awe.

The Lionel-Roseanne Sessions: The Smell of Liberty

There is simply no need for explication. Enjoy.


In the blink of an eye. It’s 427 days until the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, 469 days until the Republican National Convention in Charlotte (can you say pro forma?) and 539 days until November 3, 2020, and President Donald Trump’s colossal, immane, mind-blowingly staggering, Brobdingnagian and historic landslide victory. I say that with caution and trepidation and am a tad chary as to waxing vatic and pythonic, especially when I know how horribly treacherous this current iteration of Dems is and how they’ve at this point no path or direction or platform to speak of . . . cogently. Yet despite his superiority as to message and focus, there’s not a Dem in sight with a clue as to what needs to be done. But, I pray, in no wise should you let that dampen your perfervid dedication to ensuring Round II. I wouldn’t put anything past these bastards nor should you.

And there’s one thing that must be done. First. And that’s the wall and border security. No issue comes close to it. I don’t care about Venezuela, Iran, Syria, FISA, HRC, nothing! UNTIL the issue of sovereignty is addressed. Sovereignty. James Monroe spake thusly: “It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising their sovereignty.” This is an existential concern whose cruciality is without peer. It was the subject of the resounding political war chants and celebratory exclamations of countless crowds that punctuated Trump’s gatherings. It’s PRIORITY NUMBER ONE and yet as we speak, we can’t clearly and cogently point to exactly and precisely what’s been done and is being done to stanch this border bleeding. Hemorrhaging versus mere extravasation.
Psephology is the examination and statistical analysis of elections. Let me repeat: ELECTIONS. And elections involve the heartless, brutal and laser science of matching human behavior with polling protocol and the mighty lever or stylus or shadowed circle. Voting matters. Not Fox News or MSLSD or TV news’s answer to the pilonidal cyst, CNN. People react via the vote. They focus on fear and hope and concerns and dreams and care nothing about some shill’s scripted corporatespeak. The American voter doesn’t own a pussy hat or even know what one is. They don’t buy in to HRC hagiographies or the apotheosis of Barry Obama et ux., the Oprah wannabe Michelle, who recently “penned” a book of such profound intellectual incontinence it warranted spiritual Depend(s). American voters are simple, basic and at their core good. They respond to that which makes eminent sense. And nothing makes more sense than border security.
In the pantheon of colossal greats. Look, I’ve never been more supportive of any President in my conscious adult life than Mr. Trump. It goes without saying, he ain’t poyfect but he’s the best there is. Just the disruption he’s caused to Deep State corporate sockpuppet blathering news vagrants and skells is worth the price of admission. He’s redefined the art of campaigning and speaks with a candor that’s nonpareil. On his worst day (if that’s possible) this billionaire can connect with every facet and aspect of our collective electorate humanity with a wit and candor that Joe Biden on his best day (if that’s ever been seen) could even dream of approximating. And while that’s an attribute to be sure, he must take that talent and direct it accordingly to the masses, highlighting and spearheading issues that grab at the gut, the heart and the soul. And border security is it.

Let no one dare utter its name. CHILD TRAFFICKING. HUMAN TRAFFICKING. SLAVERY. This is happening before our very eyes as we speak with a ferocity and frequency that are unimaginable. McLuhan said that only the small secrets need to be protected. The big ones are kept secret by public incredulity. And that’s what’s seen anent the horror subject of child trafficking. Look at it this way. A drug smuggler or weapons trafficker can only sell a batch of dope or a Kalashnikov once. That’s it. He must replenish the load for the next sale deducting the costs of production, importation, bribery and attendant miscellany. In the case of a child, she can be sold five to ten times a day, daily, weekly, monthly until the child is no longer functional, marketable or until he or she is no more. Period. And the trafficker and slavemaster keep all the profit. Do the math. And let me remind you, it’s he and she, the victims. To fully grasp the levels of these horrors most are unable and unwilling to accept that fellow humans, whom we ostensibly share DNA with, could deliberately profit from the knowing horrors to our most precious. Throw into the mix that parents themselves act as pimps and agents in the sale and delivery of human chattel and you start to see the complexity and unimaginable horror of this behavior that could be significantly curtailed if not eliminated altogether were we to join forces against such by first closing our borders. And if you can stand brutality in statistic form: The Essence of Evil: Sex with Children Has Become Big Business in America.

The Roseanne Barr Interviews. I prefer to call them sessions. America’s sweetheart, America’s mom. TV pioneer and visionary and now the inadvertent posterchild for fascistic censorship over the most insignificant of tweet bleats in the annals of recorded history.

When did America lose its way, guts, backbone, focus and . . . forgive me . . . balls? I’m sure our cryptogendered world mates will find this problematic, perhaps egotestical, to be so bold as to suggest that America is waxing impuissant too much, too often and more than ever (and making genital puns to boot). Too bad. Sue me. America sits back again and again and takes the steady stream of abuse from all comers and corners. Look how we tolerated the Russian collusion myth and watched as our system of justice was rerouted and misdirected by a group of traitors who just wanted to derail and reverse the franchise.

That’s right, to reverse the fact that Donald Trump was actually and rightly elected POTUS. Notwithstanding the words of the Oven Mitt Fashionista who’s still arguing that she was robbed while she and her predator husband slash ticket prices to their pathetic road show. Have these people not enough money? Even after the billions that their criminal foundations finagled and stole. Remember that the Russian collusion myth was enabled to justify and explain how HRC lost a rigged election. No other reason. There was never for a solitary minute ever the remotest of possibilities that the government of Russia ever posed or presented a cogent, identifiable threat to our electoral system. Yet the feckless media jumped in full tilt and full throttle. And now that that’s been established they want to subject AG Barr to the most obstructionist of postmortems imaginable. This, fellow patriot, must and will stop.

Let me remind you of this question: Why are we still allowing our southern borders to be breached by invading hordes of criminals and sex and drug traffickers who’ve no intention of assimilating or joining the ranks of duped patriots who still quote Emma Lazarus? Why? That’s the question, friends. That’s the question indeed. Why are the demented Dems advocating the abrogation of all rules of the franchise to accommodate these swarms? I know and so do you the answer to that rhetorical question, viz. to beef up the electoral rolls. That simple. Look, these are the same dastards who seek to invite convicted murderers and rapists into the voter folds.

So what happened? And better, what do we need to do? Simple. America needs to immediately reconsider and remobilize the militia: private citizens who opt and elect to protect what’s theirs and stop asking for permission. That’s right, stop asking for permission. Every time something happens to us we sit back and whimper about our perceived wrong and then do nothing. Just look at what’s happened to passels of conservative voices who’ve been silenced on various social media platforms. What did and does America do? Nothing. When mainstream media news spews lie after lie, what does America do? Nothing. We’ve habituated and been conditioned to inaction. We’ve surrendered and become used to taking it. Well, that all changes now. If you elect to stand up and be counted. Shout!

Where’s the passion of the impassioned? Where’s the conservative counterculture? Even Fox News, the once-proud counterprogramming platform thanks to the genius of Ailes has now been reduced and relegated to reconstituted nothing. If I didn’t know better I’d swear America was cowed by the faux Left ochlocracy. Look, there’s simply no media Right (but plenty of wrong). No counterbalance, no opposite positions represented anywhere. Were it not for citizen and civilian journalists using social media platforms, there’d be absolutely nothing even remotely representing another perspective. And this is critical as the number of lunatic citizens who think CNN’s legit is growing exponentially. No, make no mistake about it, we are at war. A truth war. A data and verity war and we’re losing.

So how does Trump get the word out? Think about it. How? Through Sean Hannity or Rush? Puh-leeze. What are you, living in the 80s? He and we need desperately a Trump media platform that provides a 24/7 access portal to data and truth and information that citizens are not able to attend. Just this past week when the Kabuki dance called the Mueller Investigation finally sputtered to a conclusion, where were the accurate assessments that were available to Americans to review? Who knew what that charade was about? Even Fox News muddled the message with the notorious quisling Judge Nap and of all people, Donna Brazile. Gone are the days when the Left screamed that they weren’t being represented. Remember when they tried to reconstitute and dust off the hoary Fairness Doctrine. My, how times have changed.

Let me also add something that’s never addressed. America needs to review what’s being done to dilute and destroy its history, identity, tradition, customs, values, language, ideology, sensibilities and, yes, religion. America is Judeo-Christian in foundation and while that’s not to imply or suggest that the doors are closed to alternative faith systems, the systematic and systemic overturning of such is contrary to all that is American. The First Amendment encourages and guarantees religious freedom so long as American freedoms are not limited and curtailed by those who seek to replace fundamental American precepts with religious ideologies that seek to subvert and replace. Sharia governments must never replace that of ours. That of what is American.  

The latest iteration of the Left claims vocally to embrace and include diversity and heterogeneity as a righteous goal. Hear! Hear! But let’s not forget one thing: While that’s an admirable goal, the snowflake embrace is contrary to who we are and what we’re about. That simple. That basic.
