LIONEL PODCAST: Rodeo Clown Lunacy and the Politics of Media Distraction

In keeping with the cruelty of Photoshop. Our friends at the poor man’s Britannica Wikipedia remind us that Medusa was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly into her eyes would turn onlookers to stone. Now, on to the podcast.

The Lionel Doctrine. The ad coelum doctrine relates to the common law rule that a land owner owns everything below and above the land, up to the sky and below the earth to its core. Well, how do drones figure into this? This is a case of first impression. But not for me. Now, on to the podcast. Hie!

LIONEL PODCASTS: Trump, Guns, Putin, Perception, Media, Lies, Hillary, MSNBC, Sharpton and Stuff

Your perception and awareness have nothing to do with reality. Rather than provide a prolegomenon of this podcast installment, just listen. And, better yet, send it and forwarded to someone you know. Illuminate them and enlighten them with a view of the world that nobody, and I mean nobody, possesses our exhibits. And perhaps for good reason.

Remember Lionel’s Law. The law always lags behind technology. This was one of the most important cases that was announced this week regarding Facebook and privacy. I know the two terms should not be used in the same sentence, but it never ceases to amaze me how many people do not understand that nothing on Facebook or social media can in any wise be construed as safe and beyond the prying eyes of the government.

LIONEL PODCAST: First Amendment Applies to Muhammad Cartoonists But Not “Conspiracy Theorists”

You made your point loud and clear, Pam. Got it. We understand completely. Let me see if I’ve got this straight.Muslims are radical, homicidal lunatics hellbent on killing anyone who so much as scribbles a picture of their beloved prophet. Check. They’re crazy and we have a First Amendment. With the world Muslim population in excess of 1.6 billion people, representing 23% of the global population, and all of them sworn, according to Islam expert Geller, to the destruction of anyone who dares to blaspheme their profit, only two shooters were dispatched to Garland to address this blasphemy convocation. Two. Count ’em, two. This after ISIS claimed responsibility by identifying Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi as its agents. Now think about the math. If just 10% of the entire Muslim population were homicidal Islamo-fascists (an oxymoron of the first order) that would mean 160 million determined acolytes would be able to fan out worldwide wreaking havoc of monumental proportions — forest fires, trains derailed, every American mall and shopping center of note targeted, Las Vegas, AC, Disneys World and Land, bridges and tunnels demolished. And certainly this cartoon summit in that hotbed of Islamophobia, Garland TX, would certainly have been ground zero by a paltry faction of devout loons, but no. These two guys with FBI connections. Either homicidal Muslims are afraid of travel or just eschew Texas as a site of jihad or that maybe the Islamist threat is overblown and overdone, the story is replete with holes, don’t you think.

No, not that Elton. Oh, and it just so happens that Elton Simpson, the man identified as one of the two crazed gunmen dispatched by cops in Garland, TX on outside the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest, was under surveillance by the FBI and the subject of a terror investigation. Interesting isn’t it how the FBI always knows of or comes into contact with the bad guys before a tragic event. You know, if I didn’t know better … .

Did you know this? Court papers filed in Arizona reveal that the FBI “engaged” an informant, Mr. Daba Deng, a Kenyan, who knew Mr. Simpson from the mosque he attended. In 2007 Deng was instructed by the FBI to “become friends with Mr. Simpson and get to know him better by presenting himself as an individual who was new to Islam and who sought to learn more from Mr. Simpson.” Deng recorded conversations with Simpson during which they allegedly discussed jihad. Later Simpson was convicted of lying to federal agents about plans to travel to Africa where investigators said he planned to join a terror group. He was sentenced to three year probation.

The FBI always seems to know ahead of time. Various sources have long chronicled the amazing coincidence of the FBI in its involvement with terrorist events, at least, er, peripherally. Ahem.

FBI Behind Most Domestic Terror Plots

The FBI has arranged numerous fake terror plots, including the Washington Metro bombing plot, the New York subway plot, the plan to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago, the plot to bomb the Portland Christmas tree lighting and others.

In 2014, Human Rights Watch released a report stating nearly all high-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States after 9/11 included the “direct involvement” of government agents and informants.

“In some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by suggesting the idea of taking terrorist action or encouraging the target to act,” the report states.

So what’s the story with Pam? Well, let me put it to you this way. She’s amazing in what she’s establishing. She points out a very serious problem as to radicalization all the while purporting to draw them out through incitement and inducement, which is certainly her right. She reminds us that “those people” are subhuman and twisted, bent and brainwashed to kill through the contamination of hate that their dangerous religion apparently stands for. And it plays well when the narrative is another invasion and the globalist imperialist seizure of a resource-rich plot of rel estate that the ruling class wants for its newest portfolio acquisition. Countries, which by the by, happen to be Muslim. Coincidence? I think not. Geller fortifies the meme, she reinforces the concept that will lead to more American acceptance of attacking and invading ares of the globe that apparently contain these very dangerous people. The connection is beautiful. The ideas that are forged are unmistakable.

First Amendment?! That’s Geller’s schtick. We certainly have a First Amendment in the classic sense, i.e. a prohibition of governmental and state action directly limiting a course of speech and expression. True. But it’s the practical First Amendment that’s missing. Try discussing your considerable doubts with the official account of 9/11. Good luck. Or Obama’s origin of birth or — and I certainly don’t subscribe to this in the least — “revisionist” history, which, I submit, is exactly what history is. Tolstoy said history would be a wonderful thing if only it were true, and I agree. But our collective civilian fora and tribunals and conclaves will have absolutely nothing to do with your refutation of accepted doctrine. Try howling at anthropogenic causation models of climate change and global warming, especially with Cass Sunstein threatening to level your heretical discourse with a heaping helping of cognitive infiltration. You can’t make this up. Trust me, I’ve tried.

LIONEL PODCAST: With No Sense of Rudimentary Science Americans Are Being Led to the Slaughter

Get ready for the undoing. Without the ability to reason and critically think and apply issue analysis, without rudimentary critical thinking abilities, and without a deep-seated and earned skepticism, we are doomed as a society and species. There are avalanches of data before your very eyes thanks to the Internet that are providing clues and data of impending cataclysms, but it seems that all we’re interested in for the most part is the latest photoshopped picture of Kim Kardashian’s steatopygian arse or the latest viral video of a duck playing the piano. The mainstream news media monkeys are helping not in the least for they’ve been selected for “talents” that have nothing to do with brilliance, deep-thinking or analytical skill sets. No, without abecedarian issue deconstruction and a minimal conversance of science, you will be lost in the proverbial shuffle. Herein I respectfully attempt to explain why that is and what can be done to change that.

LIONEL PODCAST: If You Vote for POTUS You’re Wasting Your Time

Why bother? That’s antithetical to common thought, I know. But it’s true. Look at how Obama’s abnegated virtually everything he originally and allegedly stood for. His most ardent acolytes and apostles have jumped ship. Here’s more of Quigley’s quote that forms the basis of my belief system. sadly, I admit.

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy” (Georgetown University Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966.)

By perpetuating this canard through voting for the “lesser of two evils” (who, last time I checked, is still evil) we just ask for more of the same and we get it. We’re being held hostage for a two-party system that’s two sides of the same coin.

Video, anyone? This might explicate in a different way.

LIONEL PODCAST: I’m Not a Conspiracy Theorist. I’m a Conspiracy Analyst.


The inimitable Mr. Vidal. He said it so perfectly and eloquently and succinctly in this troika of brilliance. His quotes were beauteous. About And Warhol he said, “[he] is the only genius I’ve ever known with an IQ of 60.” Perfection. He snarled and growled in that patrician purr, the consummate dentiloquist in a style that’s long gone. He wasn’t afraid to upraid and mercilessly scold, his feuds with Bill Buckley and the quintessential pseudo-intellect, the pimpous boor Norman Mailer, were classic. Wondrous

Dissonant cognition. Leon Festinger (1957) proposed “cognitive dissonance theory, which states that a powerful motive to maintain cognitive consistency can give rise to irrational and sometimes maladaptive behavior.” It’s the parallel component to the dread conspiracy theory. As you see, nothing has to do with facts or truth but the level of discomfort the public feels. When truth or the pursuit of truth is shelved or dissuaded out of fear of ridicule or the deliberate jettisoning of the troublesome, then we have major problems, Sparky.

And were you to continue your studies and efforts in modern history, it’s critical that you come to grips with the notion of the dismissive “conspiracy theory” accusation that you will undoubtedly hear. It’s defined as “an event or situation as the result of a secret plan by usually powerful people or groups.” But what it means today is insane, baseless, paranoid and to be rejected at all costs. To be dismissed. Collective censorship. The old heave-ho en masse. It shunts and shuts and closes thought. It’s a dangerous pejorative that should be isolated and targeted and called out for what it truly is: It’s distracting and kills critical thinking and discovery.

What was that again? Perhaps a video tutorial might be in order, something that’s better able to explicate and limn the specifics. Good, I’ve got just what the doctor ordered.
