Obama’s administration has not only enriched our linguistic stock in new vocabulary, but made us learn new definitions the hard way. See, billions of dollars are not missing: they were “misplaced”; blatant lies translate to “misspeaking” and false testimony is just a “misstatement”.

Following the same line of unique “ethics”, the FBI created “mis-investigation”.

In a riveting article: “Comey Seems Blind to the Truth about Lying”(Bloomberg, April 19,2018), a professor of law at Yale University, Stephen L. Carter¬† offers both a thorough analysis of Comey’s new book and a professional evaluation of the former FBI director’s attitude to the truth and to “people”. To put it in FBI nutters’ nut shell: Comey’s “people” equal Obama’s “folks”, and law enforcement personnel is above the crowd of commoners. As to ex-FBI Directors sense of ethics, professor Carter depicts: “As I’ve noted before in this space, police officers and federal agents alike are free to deceive us as they please to get what they want. They can lie about what evidence they have, what the forensics show, what someone else down the hall is confessing at this moment. We’re just not allowed to lie back.”

Real Scandal

Apr 17, 2018 — Joanna Rosamond

coup d'état in the U.S.A
First of all, drenched in political correctness left-stream media killed the impact of the term “scandal”. Yep, thumbs up to ye, whooper-scoopers for making people yawn on the mention of whatever malodorous “substance of the matter” you wrapped in newspaper.

With a shrug of our deplorable shoulders, and a sigh of impatience: we want the truth, not a stormy-barmy excuse for your lies. While “crisis of faith in main stream media” is being globally announced, the comrades from MSM keep launching propaganda lemons –something’s gotta give…

What is the real scandal? Well, all over the world “the coup d’état in the U.S.A” has been publicly discussed for a while. You know-coup d’état, as in “extra-legal” seizure of governmental power by a greedy elite that has been voted out of office…as in undermining we the people and our right to vote, as in harassing the President and repression against the “deplorables”…As in keeping the country in a limbo of fake allegations and stupid accusations to avoid accountability for their own inexcusable crimes.

Keeping Dissidents Busy

Mar 12, 2018 — Joanna Rosamond

Hubertus Knabe: The dark secrets of a Surveillance State
Latif Yahia, Uday Hussein’s former body double reminisced that his imposed “employer” promised him and other torture victims to make them “happy”. No matter the continent or regime, political dissidents remember (and still hear…) an equally sickening threat: “We will keep you busy”.

When German government declassified Stasi files (1992), the greatest shock was delivered not by the facts that special machines had “discreetly” opened letters, or that human scent had been “collected”, but by the methodology of Zersetzung – “biodegradation” of dissidents.

Operation PTSD

Mar 6, 2018 — Joanna Rosamond

Operation PTSD
Post -Traumatic Stress is our natural reaction to a particularly harrowing event or series of events. In other words: it’s a response of a sane individual to abnormal circumstances. PTSD will not affect every survivor of a traumatic event, and is not “contagious”. Presenting the disorder as “mental illness” would mean that entire populations of war-stricken countries are mentally ill.

My teachers of PTSD were Holocaust survivors, people persecuted by communist regimes, witnesses of massacres in Zambia and Cambodia. All of them were more compassionate and altruistic than an average member of our more and more egocentric society. Most of them have received no psychological or medical help whatsoever, but they got the greatest remedy of all: personal, professional and financial freedom. I do not believe these people would get better if thrown into homelessness and political betrayal after their ordeal…

Pyramid of Greed

Feb 12, 2018 — Joanna Rosamond

Pyramid of Greed
A notable humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow (1908-1970), considered that “man is a perpetually wanting animal” and researched the dynamics of multiple determinants of human behavior. In “A Theory of Human Motivation” (1943), Maslow presented his views on the hierarchy of needs that serve as our driving force. The psychologist observed” The average member of our society is most often partially satisfied and partially unsatisfied in all his wants”.

Looking at the five-tier “Pyramid of Needs”, I can´t help but wonder how the requisites of an “average member of our society” differ from wishes of wannabe members of the power elite.

VAndals of Veterans’ Trust

Oct 31, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

Under the reign of Secretary McDonald, the VA “misspent” millions of dollars on art, but it did not make the department any more sophisticated than a bulldozer crushing Veterans´ hopes.

The Obama era administration would rather blame an unprecedented number of Veterans´ suicides on “mental problems”, not extreme penury.  An “Epidemic” of PTSD and TBI was blown out of proportion, but promises to end Veterans’ homelessness were broken.

We the Security People

Aug 25, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

We the “security people” fight for free and for freedom, and you think we simply choose “this kind of work”. We run towards the fire you watch on TV, and you wonder how crazy we are and how quickly “someone” will put out the flames.

There are among us these who guard your streets so your house is safe, and these who fight wars on battlefields so your home is still your home; and you call for “open borders” for you never guarded them. And once you’ve created danger, you feel entitled to our protection.

Identity Crisis of American Left

Jul 31, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

In psychology, the term Identity Crisis refers to a personal, psychosocial conflict involving confusion about one´s social role and personality. Not exclusive to teenagers, the internal strife can occur in adults and organizations.

From Erikson´s “stages of psychosocial development” (1963), through Engler’s observation on role confusion (2006):”the inability to conceive oneself as a productive member of one´s own society”, the researchers have learned to classify individuals into four categories depending on their “identity status”. Identity Achieved people have thought profoundly about their beliefs and have no problem auto-identifying themselves; individuals in status of Moratorium are trying to determine what their life choices are .Those classified into “Foreclosure category” took an identity copy-cat way, and people who didn´t bother to think about their personal choices are stuck inside the Identity Diffusion box.

How Left Run Out of Other People’s Money

Jul 13, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

Margaret Thatcher,  The Conservative Prime Minister of United Kingdom (1979-1990), famously considered that the problem with leftists is that they eventually run out of other people´s money. In her speech to a Conservative Party Conference (October 14th, 1983), the Iron Lady expressed the fundamental truth: “If the State wishes to spend more, it can do so only by bothering your savings or by taxing you more. And it´s no good thinking that someone else will pay, that someone else is you.”

Democracies, unlike dictatorships do not overtax citizens to death of purchasing power, and there can be no freedom without financial freedom. The money transferred from our pockets to the “common wallet” should guarantee a good level of security, access to justice and well -functioning administration- serving people, and not vice versa.

How About a Real Scandal?

Jun 9, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

For the last decade, the mainstream media have spared no efforts to “socialize” us, leading individuals up the politically correct garden path, towards transformation into an organized crowd.

Television used Affirmation, the press applied Repetition, and the crowd organizers relied on Contagion to “weed” out self-awareness. Suggestibility and credulity of the crowd were to facilitate throwing a Garden Party where the rulers are “alone in possessing irresponsibility, impersonality, and perpetuity” (Le Bon, “The Crowd: A Study of Popular Mind”).

Even if a large part of the audience turned out to be tough crowd that doesn´t give a toss about propaganda cookies and is capable of voting out the garden gnomes, the mainstream media are serving us “scandals” in a desperate attempt to hold on to their brainwashing power.

How Shallow is THE Deep State?

May 22, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

The concept of “deep state” is nothing new. While the origins of the term are often attributed to Turkish “derin devlet” (1990), cryptocracy was already known to ancient Romans and Athenians.

Cicero came up with very contemporary-sounding questions: “To what length will you abuse our patience (Catiline)? How long is that madness of yours still to mock us? “, in 63B.C when a Roman senator used “status in statu” in his bid for power. The causes of conspiracy also ring a bell: Lucius Catiline´s frustration over lost elections for Consul, his self-aggrandizement and sense of entitlement… Authors of “Conflict in Ancient Greece and Rome: The Definitive Political, Social, and Military Encyclopedia”, Sara E.Phang, Iain Spence, Ph.D. Douglas Kelly, Ph.D. Peter Londey observe that Catiline sought vengeance against his personal rivals and that “He and his followers hoped to enrich themselves from seizing the Roman government”…

Alchemy of Political Repression

Apr 24, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

Repression can be defined as an act of using force in order to control someone or something. Enchanted by the simplicity of this description, many political “alchemists” hoped for a gold- bearing mixture: coercion + thralldom= control. But did they find the elixir of eternal power, or just a false equation placing them a pseudo- philosophical – stone´s throw away from wrath of the “pawns”?
It is impossible to describe the vast variety of strategies of political repression in a few paragraphs; a short article can only give a hint of “Arcanum”.

Isolation can simply mean imprisonment, so judicial harassment and legal abuse become typical implements in a regime´s tool-box. In the case of individuals, “solitary confinement” can be also imposed by intimidation of the target´s friends and employers. Stripped from emotional support and blacklisted for jobs, the maltreated dissident feels the impact of harassment and surveillance even harder.

‘Old Glory’ Could Never Be A Placard

Apr 14, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

Usually, after playing a game of human chess resulting in yet another Guernica, politicians have to acknowledge that utopia has inevitably and traditionally ended in dystopia.

As a matter of course, such an admission does not translate into “errors have been made” but means simply “whoops! We are losing our grip on “folks”. The fact that the country was hit by the destructive political cyclone won’t matter much, unless the “pawns” decide to change the game fundamentally. As observed by George Orwell (1984) : “And if all others accepted the lie which the party imposed, if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became the truth”.

A Purgatory of a Transition

Mar 28, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

The period of transition of power from one leadership to another rarely limits to a few days following the elections and can be legally and morally limbo-like for the country.

“Politics” became an antonym of “integrity” ages ago, but there are national and international codes of ethics we must not give up on. Unfortunately for Bob Beckel-like gulag seekers, even black ops do not have “the right” to “illegally shoot” a whistleblower, no matter how unimportant a “simple pawn’s” life seems to wannabe super-humans…

Obama’s Water-Loo

Mar 9, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

When the result of Election 2016 revealed that the fed up “minority” is in fact an overwhelming majority, and that for Donald Trump winning the elections was (after all…  ) a piece of cake – the cherry-picking cartel of a mainstream media tried to rob us of our cherry on the top: the celebration of the day when the Obama Out of Office Countdown Clock said: NOW.

Actions Speak Louder than Left

Mar 2, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

When it comes to big talk, leftists are in their element:  grandiose speeches, propaganda sprees –you name it. Dems do not even care about “global warming” while trying to inflate the entire planet with hot air.

In the last ditch to preserve their monopoly of the media, they are still operating according to their golden rule:” If we want your opinion we will give it to you”. Sabotage´s main ingredients: subversion, obstruction, disruption and destruction, are being used in a delusional bid to ensure continuity in their utopian social engineering.

Since some European leftocrats are still clinging to their thrones, Obama´s propaganda squad feels free to both import and export poppycock. Recently the media have turned a prank into a scoop and we hear that the French are so infatuated with Obama that they´d love to have him as their next president; meanwhile Hollande whose program mirrored Dems´ ideology has for long been “the most unpopular president in the French history” .

Desperate Leftists of Hollywood

Feb 9, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

In yet another ‘unreality show’ episode of Hollywood´s drama queens, they express their socio-political frustration by throwing temper tantrums. More or less famous, but always with “look at me!” disposition, celebrities are conducting a massive attack on the American President and we the people who voted for his agenda.

The “moral crusade against Donald Trump”  points to a tragi-comic aspect of the pathetic show: Hollywood has for long been a symbol of anti-values, shallowness and hypocrisy.

Berlin Wall of California

Jan 31, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

It looks like the left perceives reality as its worst enemy and is determined to fight to keep delusions alive “by any means necessary”.

Meaning no disrespect to California’s patriots whose voices can be more muffled than in other states, local oligarchs seem hell-bent on turning the place into the last bastion of leftist agenda.

No Backseat Driver License for the Left

Jan 19, 2017 — Joanna Rosamond

Imposition of unpopular laws, unprecedented coercion, financial hocus-pocus and so un-American Taqiya, led Obama’s team through hubris to the defeat in elections. The soon to be ex-administration came up with coping mechanisms such as delusional denial and post-truth techniques which are supposed to give the reality secondary importance and convince the public that the leftists still rule and are here to “supervise” the new government.

Well, it looks like the Left lost it in more ways than one, and is rabidly preparing for yet another term on its own terms.

What Part of We The People Don´t You Understand?

Dec 30, 2016 — Joanna Rosamond

Apart from worrying about “the violation of Constitution” President Trump is yet to commit, the mainstream media are dropping their anchors in muddy waters of mind –reading sessions, guesstimating Trump´s thoughts and acts.

Body language aces and other “experts” who wrongly considered that Hillary Clinton had a “winning handshake”  continue to “read” the nonverbal cues, trying to establish what Donald Trump meant by eating lunch and why his socks come in “limited palette” of colors .
