Why Guantanamo Matters - An American's Opinion

With the beginning of 2015 came news of more prisoners being dismissed from the detention center at Guantanamo Bay.

Is this a good thing for the United States?

To answer that question honestly, perhaps we should take a close look at what America is supposed to stand for and what it is that makes us different. 

America, who's mission statement is Liberty and Justice for ALL, now has a tarnished image due in part to recently revealed activities° at the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center. 

I thought prisons were for people who have been convicted for having committed a crime. 

Lets be clear about something. There are people being detained at Guantanamo who have NOT been sentenced or charged for a crime. Many of them have been held captive for a decade; locked away indefinitely. Again, let me reiterate, these people have NOT been charged or convicted, yet they are being detained with little humanitarian oversight and legal recourse. 

Who are we again?

This isn't us. This isn't how Americans are supposed to behave toward our fellow beings. We're supposed to be an example, remember? We're "the city on the hill" - something other nations aspire to and are inspired by. What happens at Guantanamo Bay is the kind of thing that we criticize other nations for doing. We have a name brand*° in the world, and it is important to uphold our credibility among other nations and their peoples.

The detention of non-charged persons is not good for America because it creates more enemies for us. The person being detained will no doubt have animosity toward his captors. Torture and unjust imprisonment is no way to make a friend. If he wasn't an enemy before detention, he is certainly more likely to be our enemy after imprisonment. The children of the detained will hate America, and continue the resistance of what they perceive as US aggression and occupation in their homeland.  

There probably are some dangerous people being detained at Guantanamo Bay. If crimes have been committed, then gather the evidence and present it at a trial. If there is no evidence, then those being detained should be released. It's the right thing to do. It's the American way. 

° Torture is outlawed by international and domestic law, morally repugnant and downright un-American.

Halloween WARdrobe 2013

Time to start thinking about Halloween costumes again.

Rhetro Zenberg's pick for best Halloween costume for 2013 is this awesome WARbama ensemble. 

One might wonder why depicting President Obama as a WARmonger is an appropriate costume for Halloween. Here are a few good reasons why this is the scariest WARdrobe for not only Halloween, but every day since Obama's reign of terror began.

1 Obama has deployed over 30,000 troops to WAR zones.

2 He started a WAR in Libya.
3 He is attempting to start another WAR with Syria, (pending).
4 His personal drone WAR has already resulted in the deaths of over 2,400 innocent men, women and children in Pakistan alone, (the Guardian). The US isn't even at WAR with Pakistan
5 His administration provided guns to Mexican drug cartels that resulted in the violent deaths of hundreds if not thousands of Mexican citizens, (Fast and Furious Scandal).
6 He re-authorized the Patriot Act and signed the National Defense Authorization Act, (NDAA), declaring WAR on American citizens.

WAR is Peace

Happy Halloween!
Have a nice WAR... or three or four!

Election 2012 Political Bumper Stickers

Since we're just over one month from the 2012 presidential election, I thought it'd be a good time to include a few political bumper stickers that I have created. 

Oh, and don't throw you vote away on either Romney or Obama and be sure to vote for Gov. Gary Johnson for President of the United States

Cowboy Poetique and Ron Paul in Elko, NV

What's semi-opaque and rhymes with varmint? That'd be Mitt Romney, (his real name is Willard after all).

OK, granted. Cowboy poetry isn't for everyone, but the folks who it is for are willing to pay big buck$ to hear Marlboro-moustached men, (and sometimes women), orating about the minutest details of red-neck philosophy. One thing is sure, the annual Cowboy Poetry event generates big revenues for Elko, Nevada, and is, in reality, a dang good time.

On Thursday afternoon, lots of lucky Elko citizens had an opportunity to meet the most un-hyphenated American person in... well, America, or anywhere. Presidential candidate Ron Paul, who dropped in to encourage citizens of the Silver State to caucus for liberty this weekend.

Today, Willard, (Mitt Romney), stopped in Elko to encourage Nevadans to support the unconstitutional detention, and even assassinations of Americans without due process of law.

It's kinda interesting... The choice between three turds and a jewel seems pretty simple, but let's see how he folks in Nevada choose.

Lots of balloons

The Christian Case for Ron Paul for President of the United States of America

The right of a person to worship without fear of persecution is important to Ron Paul who has worked to protect Americans by opposing legislation that corrodes religious liberties and has supported policies that promote personal and religious freedom. Ron Paul has fought to keep the government out of the churches, has proven to be incorruptible, and will be a good ambassador of Christianity throughout the world. Christian Americans shouldn't fear liberty, but through faith, should put liberty to the test. Vote for FAITH, vote for Ron Paul.

The current condition of the economy puts a terrible strain on American families, and Ron Paul has the best plan for getting the economy back on track. War is another terrible reality for families to deal with. Too often, soldiers with families are forced to leave their children when they're deployed. Sometimes they don't come back, or return home permanently disabled only to find that the VA is either unwilling or ill equipped to deal with their condition. Our returning soldiers deserve better than that. It's no wonder that our active military personnel have put their financial support behind Ron Paul more than all of other candidates combined. They know better than anyone what is best for military families.

Our soldiers and military families aren't the only families suffering the effects of war. Our undeclared military interventions have resulted in the deaths of more than a million innocent men women and children from our bombing campaigns and the unsanitary conditions that followed. War is the enemy of all families, everywhere, and contrary to God's will for His creation, "peace on Earth, and good will toward men." Vote for FAMILY, vote for Ron Paul.

Dr. Ron Paul has delivered thousands of babies and is in favor of reversing the Supreme Court decision on RVW. And since war, like abortion, kills thousands of innocent human beings, he promises to commit troops, only by congressional declaration, and only when all other peaceful attempts to negotiate have failed. To Ron Paul, the Christian principle of doing unto others as we would have them do unto us, applies on the international level, and we could thwart an unnecessary war with Iran by adhering to that precept. Ron Paul's good will toward mankind is honorable, and would encourage a more peaceful Earth, and facilitate the spread of Christianity throughout the world, maybe even Iran.

Contrarily, the pro-war rhetoric coming from all of the other candidates actually contributes to making the world more volatile. Iran is paying attention to the candidates' threats, and taking them seriously. As Christians, we should look at the situation from Iran's perspective. How would we react? America would consider it to be an act of war if Iran was flying drones through our airspace, threatening us with preemptive military strikes, and regime change. We shouldn't expect Iran to behave any differently than we would. I understand that sometimes war is necessary, but there is some amount of hypocrisy in claiming to be pro life while at the same time, perpetuating the same failed policies of undeclared wars that destroy so much LIFE unnecessarily.

Let us be firm in our trust of the Lord, and do unto Iran as we would have Iran do unto us. Let us be the Christian example in the world, the city on the hill, whose light projects a better way for mankind, and whose good deeds ultimately glorify God. Vote for LIFE, vote for Ron Paul

Ron Paul has been sounding the voice of warning from the watchtower for decades, and fortunately, lots of Americans are awaking to a sense of our awful situation. Ron Paul should be retiring, but he understands the dangerous situation America is in, and is willing to give us his all to protect and preserve our great nation, God bless him for his indefatigable spirit and willingness to stand for the TRUTH. America's (metaphorical) defense walls are crumbling, and Ron Paul will shore them up, and fortify them - placing watchmen on every tower. With secure borders, and our troops out of harm's way, America will be safer, and stronger. Vote for a STRONG DEFENSE, vote for Ron Paul.

Ron Paul has the best chance to defeat President Obama in November because he stands on the foundation of TRUTH and PEACE. I don't think any of the other GOP candidates' policies would find as much favor with the Lord, and would ultimately be an embarrassment to true believers, therefore we should support the one man who stands for everything a true Christian could hope for in a president. Anyone else would be impudent against Obama, and/or an inadequate choice to deal with America's problems at the most vulnerable time in our nation's history. Vote for the candidate who will defeat Obama in 2012, ELECT Ron Paul for President of the United States of America.

Election Blues - The Hypnotic States of America

When I see election results, I realize that I'm not like everyone else. Not many people are interested in propaganda, handwriting analysis and body language, some of my favorite pass times that are not only lots of fun, but help me interpret my world.

"Why WILL you say that I am mad?"

I had an epiphany while attending a high school assembly that featured a professional hypnotist. It was entertaining watching the on stage volunteers do all kinds of zany things they would normally never do otherwise. At one point, the hypnotist mesmerized the entire audience... except me it turned out. I looked around as my friends, peers and teachers followed the hypnotists commands, doing whatever he told them to, then, after counting and snapping his finger, everyone returned to themselves.

OK, what does this all have to do with election results? I have to keep reminding myself that most people are walking around in a state of hypnotic suggestion. Why else would anyone vote for Santorum or Romney? Of course! They're just responding to their hypnotic commands, and in their suggestible state of mind, they never have to actually think about the awful effects of their choices that they think are their own.

The Secret Lives of ABC/Yahoo Social Engineers - How to Make Ron Paul Disappear, or the $10,000 Bet that Cost Romney the Republican Nomination

I was shocked by last night's Republican debate that was broadcast and streamed live on ABC/Yahoo. Shocked, because it was so poorly and unfairly presented. Shame on both ABC and Yahoo for their manipulative program that made it seem as though the debate was all about Romney and Gingrich.

I streamed the debate live on Yahoo, and participated in the interactive on-air poll that instantly displayed the results of the sixteen questions as they were answered. Unfortunately, the questions were either exclusively Newt vs. Mitt, or didn't provide adequate options to correctly answer them. In other words, the poll was designed to manipulate public opinion rather than reflect it.

There was one question in the poll that provided a glimmer of hope though, "Would you like to hear more from Ron Paul tonight?" I clicked the yes option and when I viewed the results of that question, the answers were overwhelmingly in favor, but we didn't hear a whole lot more from Ron Paul, even though he has consistently polled as a top tier candidate throughout the campaign, and maintains a strong second place in Iowa.

Last time ABC hosted a Republican debate, Ron Paul was allowed only 89 seconds to respond to moderators' questions. This time he got a few more seconds, but nothing in comparison to all of the other candidates, even those who have consistently polled in low single digits. Once again, ABC has silenced Paul simply by ignoring him. I wonder why they are so afraid of his message of peace, freedom and equality. Perhaps ABC/Yahoo prefers war, tyranny and the belief that corporate persons are created more equal than REAL people.

Mighty Mo and I actually had fun imitating the gestures of the various candidates. Newt did some convincing podium thumping, and just like in the previous debate, uplifted his hands and demonstrated the messiah stance. I noticed that he winked at one of the moderators at least two times as well. I wonder which one???

As usual, Mitt made a lot of nervous hurky-jerky left handed stick shift gestures. Mitt's PR people were, no doubt, thrilled when he demonstrated that he can remember seven things. I'm sure they were equally horrified when their candidate made a $10,000 bet with the insignificant Texas Governor who, in a previous debate, demonstrated that he had difficulty remembering the three government agencies that he would cut if he should become president. Unfortunately for the Romney campaign though, folks won't remember or even care what the bet was about. What will be remembered is Mitt's tasteless wager that cost him the nomination.

911 One Decade Later - 10 Years of Propaganda

Earlier last month, when I first heard about the American helicopter full of Navy Seals being destroyed in Afghanistan, I turned to my wife and said, "What do you want to bet that those were the guys who supposedly got Bin Laden?" My heart sank one evening a couple of weeks later as my suspicions were validated while watching the local news. It was reported that a Utah man had been killed in the helicopter calamity with the other Seals that are credited with capturing and killing Osama Bin Laden. I really do hate being right all the time.

Since Bin Laden was buried at sea, there was no physical body as evidence, and now, with the convenient destruction of an entire team of seals, there are no witnesses either. Brilliant.

The majority of the pharmaceutically-induced masses accepted the official narrative, (even though the story continued to change), without any question, and praised the president for his heroic decision to raid Bin Laden's compound.

It is terrifying to me to think that these people will stop at nothing, even the death of dozens of elite military forces, to perpetuate an authoritative narrative... even if it is a lie.

I've been intrigued with propaganda for as long as I can remember, and since September 11, 2001, there has been no shortage of powerfully manipulative information designed to fuel the war machine, and keep the masses ignorant and supportive.

My most recent favorite propaganda coup, was when President Obama released his fake birth certificate that even pro-Obama Photoshop experts who set out to vindicate the president said it must be a joke because it was so poorly manufactured, then, to take attention away from the obvious forgery, pretended to capture and kill Chief Boogyman, Osama Bin Laden.

For those of you with a short memory span, Monsieur Bin Laden was reported to have been on dialysis nearly a decade ago. An adult of Bin Laden's maturity could never have survived all these years, even under the best medical supervision, in the best American hospital. Osama Bin Laden was dead many years ago, but the military industrial complex needed a powerful boogyman to fuel the fears, that perpetuate trillions of dollars of funding... one source of America's economic woes.

Wake up America. It's been ten years, and it's time to stop dreaming.

Flash Back to a more innocent time.

"Here come the planes... They're American planes... Made in America." Laurie Anderson
"One day you wake up, and you didn't even know you were asleep" Adrian Belew

I was still dreaming that I was looking for my glasses when suddenly, my alarm clock radio sounded, just as I had programmed it to the night before. As usual, the dial was set to 1080 am KSCO, and I was still shaking the dreams from my head when I heard the familiar voice of radio personality Rosemary Chalmers, in her wonderful British accent saying something like, "We've just received word that an aeroplane has crashed into the World Trade Center..." I didn't wait to hear any more, and exploded from my bed. I quickly climbed the stairs on all fours, using my hands to claw my way to the top. Barely maintaining balance, my feet slid beneath me on the cold, slick, stone tile floor as I cornered a sharp right turn into the living room, and scurried toward the television set. I knew it would be a hot topic on CNN, there would no doubt be live coverage. I never watch TV, and my family appeared surprised to see me moving so quickly to get to the boob tube, and then speed through the channels... clicking as quickly a humanly possible, until finally, there it was... unbelievable! In the distance, thick black smoke was billowing from the injured north tower. Upon a rooftop, a talking head stood at a safe and picturesque distance, reporting on how much they didn't know about the situation... but the images were great so he kept on talking. As I viewed the spectacle in awe, I observed a dot crossing the screen behind the reporter's head... and another aeroplane crashed spectacularly into the south tower. No! I cried as it burst into flames right before my eyes on live TV. As I sobbed in horrified disbelief, my son asked innocently, "Were there people on that plane?" I looked at him and gave an affirmative nod. He had been on an airliner, and could easily imagine how many people were involved. The realization was met with a welling up of tears, which soon overflowed their small reservoirs and streamed down his smooth cheeks, dropping to the floor. "Why would someone do that?" he asked while thick black smoke belched and billowed from both towers. There were hundreds of people trapped above the flames, and it was reported that some of them were jumping from the blazing inferno rather than face a painful fiery demise. The situation was not good for those still in the towers.
1rst casualty in war

Now it was obvious that America was under terrorist attack, and an order was quickly issued for a
ll airliners to land immediately while fighter jets scrambled to intercept any planes that did not heed the grounding order. Before long, another airliner had crashed into the Pentagon in Washington DC, while another had mysteriously crashed in a wooded area of Pennsylvania. Knowing that fighters had been dispatched to intercept wayward airliners, I was suspicious about the Pennsylvania crash from the beginning. America was now at war, and it appeared that we had brought down one of our own to protect real estate, and heads of state. A heart warming hero story was cooked up to feed the frenzy, casting the victims of United flight 93 as heroes who prevented the terrorists from reaching their intended target by crashing the plane in the unpopulated Pennsylvanian woods. Its a nice story, but as a student of propaganda, I know that in war, truth is the first casualty. There were reports of other unexplained explosions in the Washington DC area that morning, but they were soon forgotten... swept away in the official mass media mantra.Apocalyptus on live TV

It was a scene from an apocalyptic nightmare. We sat watching the TV in disbelief as the first tower co
llapsed from structural fatigue. It fell as though a demolition crew had expertly placed charges in strategic positions. Tears streamed down my face as I watched in horror as my Familia Human ran from the toxic dust cloud which pursued them through the streets of Manhattan. The devastation was unbelievable, and the second tower soon collapsed in like manner. Many thousands were injured, and no one yet knew how many thousands were dead... or if there would be more attacks... America went on paranoid alert.Reflex retaliation

Many thousands more would die as America went off to war in Afghanistan, then Iraq, and recently Libya. Remember ten years ago, when seemingly overnight, the brightly coloured American flag stickers of
red white & blue, placed alongside yellow ribbons, (ironically made in China), adorned automobiles nationwide in support of war... and revenge?A neo-McCarthyistic policy was soon embraced by the administration... those not with us are against us, and suspect.Faded glory

These colors don't run" But they do fade.
Now, a decade later, the once colourful
flags and ribbons have all faded, and so has support for war. Americans are divided now more than ever... There appears to be no end to the war in sight, meanwhile trillion$ of dollar$ continue to be diverted to the effort, as America's infrastructure collapses, and her economy continues to collapse despite assurances from the administration.
Rhetropinion & prediction

It is Rhetro Zenberg's opinion that America is $pending way too much money fighting a war it does not intend to win. Don't get me wrong... I want those responsible for what happened ten years ago as much as the next red blooded American, but we've already lost, and ki
lled WAY too many innocents in this terror war. The situation in Iraq is similar but worse than Vietnam, because our intervention has effectively eliminated the only threat to neighboring Iran's Islamo-fascist aspirations as a world power.

1, Due to the destabilization of the region, Iran wi
ll ascend as a formidable nuclear power.
2, Iran will suffer from nuclear accidents as they unravel the mysteries atomique.
3, Iran wi
ll face retaliatory attacks, for their use or attempted use of atomic weapons.
4, America wi
ll somehow find a way to be involved. In short... more war.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

Ultimately, the choice belongs to the electorate. America can sti
ll wake up and elect people like Ron Paul who won't be so quick to engage in armed conflict, but that will never happen as long as we continue to elect pro-war Republicrats to [mis] represent US.

Have a nice war
or two or three or four or... HOW MANY MORE?

Ron Paul for President 2012 - Peace in our Day?

Today, Texas Congressman Ron Paul announced the formation of a committee to explore his candidacy for President of the United States.

So far, Mr. Paul is the only politician that has thrown his hat into the ring who stands for PEACE. Everyone else is in favor of perpetuating the expensive, illegal, and immoral wars in Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq. Not even our peace prize toting president has any intention of ending those wars, and even seems to be accelerating America's military presence in more places than most people can keep track of.

It is Rhetro Zenberg's opinion that if Ron Paul is serious about his bid for president, he should exploit the PEACE card, and make PEACE the focus of his campaign.

How will you vote... PEACE or war? The choice should be simple, and obvious.

Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan - Trojan Horse and the Fascist Gun in the West

I think that it's funny how so many people revere Ronald Reagan as a hero for outspending the Soviet Union and causing Communism's demise. It's funny because that isn't how it happened at all.

The real reason the Soviet Union fell is because the United States mischievously tricked the Ruskies into stealing software that was pre-designed to fail... a modern day Trojan Horse, if you will. The scheme worked perfectly, too. The Soviets were always too happy to save a bundle of cash by stealing someone else's research and development and make it their own. This time their greed got the best of them and when all of their systems began failing, they had no idea why. Brilliant... like the brightness of one hundred candles on Ronny Reagan's birthday cake. Who's going to blow them out?

Kentucky Fried Buffalo 66

I heard the funniest sports news story today that is right out of *Kentucky Fried Movie. Apparently, a professional football player, (Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Steve Johnson), missed a catch that would have won the game for his team. As funny as that is, the really funny part is that he blamed God for it.

I'm surprised that everyone is so offended by Johnson's ignorant attitude. How many times have you heard some dumb athlete give credit to God for a touchdown, World Series, new record, etc.? How is Steve Johnson's comment any different? Do you really think that God would care about something as meaningless as sports?

I wonder if God wants credit for this one...
Congratulations to the United States of America who has been at war in Afghanistan longer than the Soviet Union was. We show'd those yeller red Ruskies who's got real stayin' power. Go Team America!

and... Way to go WikiLeaks! Too bad the truth will be your undoing.

$wine Flu Over the Cuckoo'$ Ne$t - Post #300

When the polio vaccine wa$ introduced in the middle of the twentieth century, it wa$ touted as the an$wer to a terrible debilitating disea$e that had crippled thousand$ of innocent$. At that time, it seemed like $cience could an$wer all of our $ocial and medical problem$, and quickly took the role of me$$iah of the atomic age. $cience had overthrown tyrant$, and now, promi$ed to defeat di$ea$e... or $o it appeared to the ignorant tru$ting ma$$e$ who rolled up their $leeves to receive the magical injection$.

Unfortunately, the reality of the matter i$n't a$ gloriou$ as pharmaceutical marketer$ would have you believe. Like all di$ea$e$, polio is cyclical, and it had already been waning for some time when the fir$t inoculation$ were being admini$tered. There hadn't been a new ca$e of the di$ea$e in the U$ for $everal month$, and ironically, $ince it'$ introduction, the only people who contract polio are tho$e who have received the vaccination. But people aren't generally intere$ted in reality. It'$ more convenient and comfortable to believe that almighty $cience is in control of our de$tiny, and defeating di$ease through vaccination$ and pharmaceutical drug$, all of which cau$e seriou$ $ide effect$. Unfortunately, vaccination$ kill and maim more people than they $ave, and are $etting up the population with compromi$ed immune $ystem$ that will lead to more $ickne$$.

Now we're being $poon fed more marketing propaganda de$igned to $care the ma$$e$ into receiving the new, barely te$ted, $wine flu vaccine. How many will die from thi$ new vaccine that i$ $uppo$ed to prevent H1N1, a di$ea$e that ha$ killed fewer people than die from a$pirin or lawn mower accident$?

Six Years Later: How Are We Doing So Far?

Yesterday marked the sixth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Unfortunately, it looks like we'll have a military presence there for a long time to come. So much for change.

To me, one of the most socially impacting and unreported aspects of our involvement in Iraq, is the toxic landscape we have created there. Long after America's troops have all left Iraq, traces of depleted uranium will continue to cause severe birth defects* and drastically affect the quality of life there.

Many Americans are completely unaware that our military used uranium tipped munitions throughout Iraq and Afghanistan. You'd have thought that we'd learned our lesson in Yugoslavia where the terrible effects of depleted uranium were observed and documented. Unfortunately, we adopted an "ignore it and it will go away" attitude toward the obvious side effects of the toxic but effective new weapon.

Depleted uranium is not an atomic weapon. The hardened uranium is used in armor piercing weapons. When a depleted uranium tipped shell impacts its target, the uranium vaporizes and becomes airborne. Unconfined microscopic radioactive particles make their way into the lives of civilians and soldiers alike. Radiation doesn't discriminate. American soldiers who have entered immobilized Iraqi tanks to procure war souvenirs, have unknowingly inhaled radioactive particulates, and contaminated their uniforms with the deadly dust. Gulf War Syndrome, a common debilitating disease among Gulf War vets, may be due in part to depleted uranium exposure.** Here in America, buyers of used Iraq, Afghanistan and Gulf War uniforms may become secondhand victims of depleted uranium poisoning as well. Buyer beware!

I would like to point out that I am not necessarily anti war. I'm all for military destruction of anyone and everyone responsible for what occurred on September 11th, 2001, but would prefer to reach that goal without the unnecessary destruction of innocents. That, I cannot support.

* No wonder they hate us:

Is it really worth it?

By the way, if you couldn't tell, the above photographs are human beings. Their deformities are a result of exposure to depleted uranium.

** Other evidence suggests that Gulf War Syndrome may have been caused by the mandatory anthrax vaccinations of US soldiers because many enlistees who never went to the Gulf have also experienced the same symptoms. The common factor is the vaccinations that were administered to all US military personnel. Soldiers who refused to take the controversial anthrax vaccination were court-marshaled. It has been reported that the French Gulf War soldiers, did not receive the anthrax vaccinations, and have not suffered from Gulf War Syndrome.

Have a nice war!

Oh, and Happy Spring too.
