Discussion (mostly) unmoderated by human hands

unmod[Update 2: Smoke Monster’s posts or posts of equivalent nastiness will be flushed, regardless of what is stated below.  I’d had no idea.]

[Update and clarification: WordPress’ moderation system, over which I have no control, continues to insert itself.  What I meant by the title of this post (originally “Unmoderated discussion,” since updated) is that I will just approve everything on this thread once I notice it in the moderation queue or in the spam folder.  This means some comments’ appearance will be delayed from time to time.  There is absolutely nothing I can do about that.  On the plus side, “censorship!!”  –Sincerely, Mitch, your favorite fascist Gestapo gay Jewish city-slicker Zionist democrap pig endangering all life on the planet]

From time to time, I will be moderating certain posts.  Here is a spot in which you can, if you wish, post comments without moderation.  Here is also a spot that people need not read if they prefer their topics moderated.  This is an attempt at increasing the signal to noise ratio of the Herald, without completely preventing people from commenting when I do not feel they contribute usefully to the discussion.

For example, this could be an excellent place to call me (or anyone you want!) a fascist pig, or curse one another out, or whatever you like, without fear that your comment will be dumped in the trash when I bother to check through the comment queue.

    Sorry, they are in the trash. They may still be in your web browser if you hit the back arrow near the upper left of its window. If they are, you can drag over them until they are highlighted, and press Control-C to copy them to your clipboard, then paste them into another window with Ctrl-V (usually).

    A good idea, Mitch – good thinking, at least it seems here.

  6. December 17, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    Then I’ll type what I can remember:
    After WWII the remaining Japanese Generals were asked why they didn’t invade America’s West coast. The reply was: they knew every American home had guns. This year deer license sales were over 600,000 in the state of Wisconsin – the eighth largest army in the World. More armed men than in Iraq, more than in France and Germany combined. The men went hunting and no one was killed. 750,000 hunters in Pennsylvania, 700,000 in Michigan and all returned home safe. A quarter of a million in West Virginia — the hunters in these four states alone literally establishes the fact that those hunters comprise the World’s largest army! This makes We the People, the defined Posse Comitatus – power to the county.

    I realized during ‘Occupy Eureka’ that those of us who are on the streets, are in the know. Saturday in conversation with one of our homeless sisters, I learned that Humbold’s gun and ammo sales are high. Good to know.

    The Japanese never planned to invade the United States. They knew that we were weak and decadent and did not have the discipline to mount a war against them. The military rulers of Japan hoped we would simply withdraw from the Pacific theater and leave that part of the world to them. As any student of history knows that didn’t occur.

  9. December 17, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    #7 – the same thing crossed my mind. Mitch just ‘decided’ to trash my two comments – one is posted above – does anyone read something offensive, or ‘stupid’ there? Is it something you’d rather not know? What exactly did I type that got my post trashed Mitch? You, yourself have complimented my posts – did you even read it? I’m just curious how you suddenly arrived at such a conclusion.

  10. December 17, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    HUUFC,
    What, should I have placed quotes around the Japanese General’s reply? I find your post to be an uninformed negative vibration, isn’t there enough of that circling the globe?

  11. December 17, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    Well, they didn’t come — as indeed they had planned — because we destroyed most of the aircraft carriers in their great Pacific battle group under Yamamoto, at the Battle of Midway.

    Probably Yamamoto intended only to take Pearl at Hawaii as well, as this would stifle US involvement in the South Asian area, where they had already routed the British.

    Nontheless, there seem to have been submarines and occasionally a balloon-mounted bomb which made it to California or Oregon shores, and of course there were bitter battles to decide the Aleutians.

    This out of research to support a feature film which will never get made, but might have been interesting, a couple of years ago.

  12. December 17, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    My two cents:
    The only thing happening on planet Earth is COMMERCE. Since Pharoah’s time International Bankruptcies are 70 years each. Hawaii’s bankruptcy ended midnight December 7th, 1942. The Japanese bombing the Commercial vessels at the Port disrupts Commerce. This is what gave Roosevelt the ‘go-ahead.’ There is footage of the then U.S. Post Master General slapping an airmail stamp on ” Big Boy,” and saying, “Just to make it legal – – we’re returning your cargo airmail.”
    The same when Germany invaded Poland. Poland had just come out of an International Bankruptcy. The same when Reagan did his photo op, “Tear down this wall, Mr. Gorbachef.”(sp?).

    Forgot to put this in – the main point – the Japanese jumped the gun by one hour.

    Re-posting after being censored…….

    The link attached is one of hundreds available documenting that in recent years gun ownership has gone up, and violent crime has gone down. But guns are not the issue.
    I don’t expect to get much agreement on this, but here goes: Parents need to start being parents. Here are a few things to look for:
    If your son has more tattoos than Mike Tyson….HE MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM
    if he has enough piercings that he jingles when he walks…HE MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM
    If he freaks out that you enter his room….HE MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM (could be he’s hiding something?)
    If he plays violent video games 8 hours a day….HE MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM
    If he threatens you with physical harm….HE MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM
    The goth look is not just a fashion statement….HE MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM
    The “you might hurt his self esteem” argument is bullshit. Step in where needed. If you need help, get help. You’re his parent, Hopefully, there will be time to be his friend, assuming he’s not in jail or dead.

    First: Mitch, you’re a fascist pig, and screw the rest of you slimy #&@%*s. Whew! That felt good. Thanks for the venue to vent!

    Second: Forest Queen’s version Japan vs. United States is the one I’m familiar with.

    Along with that, though, I believe Yamamoto(?) also knew if they didn’t knock out the United States with one quick and fatal blow, there was no way they could defeat us in a sustained war. He realized early on Japan couldn’t stand up to America’s resources and industrial capacity should it survive that first blow.

    How about you post all my comments that you’ve censored, Mitch, there’s dozens of them now and you censor them because you’re an intellectual coward who will use dirty tricks of censorship and slander to attack those who criticize your carpet-bagger mentality that comes here from New York and disses Californians and locals and tries her best to manipulate local politics so that local California citizens cannot find work in Humboldt County because people like you, carpet-baggers all, come here to exploit Humboldt County for your own career advancement in the local political scene.

    My beef with you started with identity fraud, like who are you, “Mitch”, and progressed with Progressive pols like you defining the new corrupt Humboldt County good-old boy and girl Prog gangsters from out of town out to destroy Humboldt County working class and keep the poor down.

    Lastly, my beef with you and fellow closet Zionists is that you’re using Prog status to protect your Jewish national enterprise as you stop any serious discussion of the crimes of Israel on Humboldt County political blogs or in any political meetings. In this you are the same as any Neo-Con conservative Jew who rats out America and Palestine in order to maintain the Zionist 64 year long crime against humanity that is Israel established by force of arms and never negotiations with the indigenous peoples made to suffer for Jewish narcissism and greed for other people’s lands and whatever loot there is to take. And frankly, as a California native and a Jew I’m sick of seeing Jews from outside California coming here to exploit locals, from Hurwltz to Darryl Cheney to you and the whole Jewish majority of Humboldt County political and environmental activists while our ethnic group only comprises 2% of the population.

    I’m glad for this brief window of freedom of speech allowed in your otherwise sick and twisted political manipulative blog but surprise us and keep it up and maybe even get the cohones to answer my charges against your Heraldo bag of dirty tricks.

    NOTICE TO PUBLIC SERVANTS

    Since 1933 what is called the “United States Government” is a privately owned corporation of the Federal Reserve/International Monetary Fund. It is merely an instrument whereby the banksters administer their ongoing subjugation and plunder of what was once considered “the last great hope of human freedom.” All “Public Servants,” officials, Congressmen, politicians, judges, attorneys, law enforcement officers, States and their various agencies, etc., are the express agents of these foreign principals -see Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, and Treasury Delegation Order #91 – who have stolen the country by clever, intentional, and unrelenting fraud, trickery, treachery, non-disclosure, mis-representation, intrigue, coercion, conspiracy, murder (example the murder of President John F. Kennedy and the continuing cover-up), etc. If there is a greater tragedy in human history, it is hard to know what it is.

    An insidious aspect of that is that “officials” like you may think you are “public servants,” or upholding the “law” or other hoaxes, in truth you are conscientiously and assiduously serving the archenemies of yourselves, your own rights, your fellow citizens, human rights, life, and freedom in general. YOU are seditiously administering the plunder, bankruptcy, conquest, destruction, dismantling, and elimination of your country. YOU are systematically defrauding, extorting, impoverishing, and injuring human life on the basis of crimes and lies of such magnitude, depth and proportions as to be beyond human comprehension.

    By doing so, you are committing TREASON and PERFIDY so immense as to “make the angels weep.” If you and your fellow “officials” do not understand the real situation, you are ignorant, naive, deceived, and conned. You are sheer dupes If you do know and are parties to it, you are guilty of evil and heinous BETRAYAL. You are in such case TRAITORS AND CRIMINALS. All of you “in power” are therefore, either fools or knaves, either of which eminently invalidates your “authority” and renders null and void absolutely all-moral obligation to pay allegiance or to obey the TREASONOUS SYSTEM you enforce with such mechanical viciousness.

    If you “Public Servants” had any shred of humanity, awe, heart, clarity, access to your true being and conscience, you would instantly resign and do everything possible to inform the people of their plight and help us retrieve our rights and our country. Only by such means can you even begin to atone for your endless crimes against humanity, the lives you so arrogantly and mindlessly butcher with the “meat-grinder of the law.”

    You DID NOT CREATE the lives you “legally” assault; they DO NOT belong to you. Ignorance of the law – moral and natural law – is no excuse. You cannot engage in bringing harm to life and like the Nazi defense at Nuremburg, presume that because you do so under the “authority” of an imaginary, abstract, unreal legal fiction called “government” you are freed the consequences of your acts. Moral and natural law are not obviated by ignorance, hubris, and self-righteous militancy. Your entire system – from the ground up – is deceit and fraud. It is illicit in essence ab initio. As Broom’s Maxims 297, 729 put it; “A right action cannot arise out of fraud.” Honor is earned by honesty and integrity, not under false and fraudulent pretenses. The color of the cloth one wears cannot cover up the usurpations, lies, and treachery. “When black is fraudulently conveyed to white, not all will live in darkness.”

    More and more people are awakening to the truth. What do you think the people will do as they discover that they have no more country, that they are slaves to mortal enemies, that they have been tricked and betrayed by their “leaders” who sold them out? What do you think they will do when they realize that all their alleged “public servants” are willing or stupidly compliant parties to the plunder, bankruptcy, subjugation, and ruin of their lives and country?

    Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Am honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens.” Lincoln said, “Just as I would not be a slave, neither would I be a master.” I will not participate in your corrupt, arrogant, and cruel fraud either as a perpetrator or victim. The great Indian poet Tagore wrote, “Power takes ingratitude the writhing of its victims.”

    I will no longer sit here and writhe. The TYRANNY over this country MUST END! If you continue with this course, you will have natural and moral law and higher powers to answer to, not to mention all those you have wronged under your phony “color of law.” You will also have your own laws turned against you as you have turned the law against us. To transform the shield of protection into a sword of exploitation, subjugation, and plunder is perfidy. You have now been placed on Notice. All further actions on your part will be willful.
    Copies will be immediately sent registered mail to Kamala D. Harris – California Attorney General.

    Have others noticed that the Federal/military red, white and blue ain’t flying at the top of the white-painted log flagpole in front of the Administration Bldg., labeled courthouse? As I have said before, all courts worldwide are Commercial foreign vessels in dry dock. No flag?
    Meaning – we have surrendered or the system has rotted from within, and the ship sunk.

    “The United Nations General Assembly voted to create Israel in 1947. The State of Israel came into being the next year. Facts are stubborn things.”

    The U.N. was created by the winners of WW II in 1945. Two years later 33 nations voted for the Partition of Palestine. There are 193 nations in the U.N. today. Not a single Palestinian was ever consulted about the plan devised by Europeans and American Jews to aid the European Ashkenazi Zionist enterprise begun in the late 1800’s that called for these European Jewish converts to invade Palestine and claim it as Jewish territory. I am of Ashkenazim descent and dna testing shows my Ashkenazim ancestry goes no farther towards Palestine than Uzbekistan, which sits in the heart of the old Khazar kingdom that converted to Judaism in the 7th century to avoid annihilation by Christian and Muslim armies. I do have “real” Sephardic ancestry too, a very small percentage due to Sephardic Jews coming out of Spain into the Netherlands intermarrying with Ashkenazim Jews but that Sephardic (Mizraim) ancestry is from Tunisia and Libya, so that gives me a “right of return” to another land? The whole Zionist thing is not only racist based but a gigantic fraud perpetrated on the world at Palestinian expense. Actually at the whole Middle East’s expense as Israel is in reality the West’s implanted colony to control the Middle East by America pumping trillions of dollars and weaponry into Zionist Jewish hands.

    Most Leftists blame Zionists for creating a monster in the Middle East but as we have seen for the past decade, the Left has been quite silent overall about organizing to stop Israel’s racist agenda of building settlements for Jews only in as much Palestinian land that they can steal by any means. And America supports this Zionist effort because of two things: the immense amount of money Israel (with our tax dollars) spends on lobbying Washington policy makers and you will notice that although we Jews make up only 2% of the nation’s population we are at 75% of the past Presidential advisory boards, and 100% in the nation’s top financial advisors. With this much political power over key governmental agencies is it any wonder America supports Israel even while most of the world condemns Israel for it’s apartheid and fascist policies of invasion and occupation of Palestinian lands.
    The funny part that’s not so funny is that here in America where one would expect a huge outcry of protest by the Left, there’s hardly any serious protest going on.

    And why is that? Because much of the Left leadership is Jewish. Just do a head count of local activists in Humboldt County environmental and political activist organizations to see that us 2%’s are way overly represented and running local political protest venues like this one where Mitch is at the helm censoring this anti-Zionist many a time in her personal efforts to protect Israel from organized Leftist protesting. Do any of you know that there’s a Jewish international anti-Zionist group based in the Bay Area? Do we hear of their protest demonstrations and Palestinian speakers here in our political discussions? Nope. I post their stuff on my anti-Zionist blog but that’s about it. And there’s a concerted effort by Mitch and Zionist tag team partner Eric Kirk to censor any of my posts about these things. This is Mitch’s trying to stave off criticism that she’s an intellectual coward who uses slander and censorship of her political opponents to “win” her arguments with them, them meaning people like me who tell it like it is. Facts are stubborn things.

    While I can post here temporarily, I want to re-establish a truer meaning for the word “troll” that forum and blog owners and monitors often throw out to slander and censor people who post on their blogs that they don’t like, that dislike stemming most often from criticism of the forum or blog owners posted opinions or actions. Eric Kirk censors me often as he does Ed Voice who also is a critic of Eric’s unethical actions re the Community Park scammers he represents as promoter and former legal council to the owners using SoHum community members funds for a profitable return expected on their subdivision plans and concert venue customers.

    Eric’s partner in community manipulation is Mitch here who also engages in intellectual cowardice and dirty tricks by slandering her political opponents, letting others slander them too and then censoring the target of her character assassination attacks so they can’t defend themselves. That’s chicken-shit and she and Eric do it all the time. Eric’s got the record in Humboldt County for allowing the most hateful of slander to be posted on his blog against a Humboldt County activist he doesn’t like. That was “Jewish Person” posts on SoHum Parlance hoping I, the anti-Zionist Semite-lovin’ anti-Semite, would die from the cancer I was battling at the time. In all my years of posting on internet forums I’ve never seen that level of hatred allowed by any monitors except Eric Kirk. He’s a political city slicker come here like Mitch to climb up the political manipulator ladder and he’s building his image as forum host in important community discussions yet he’s the same person who holds the record in my experience for allowing the worst sort of hate speech to be posted quite a few times too, on his blog in order to attack me using an obvious Zionist fanatic’ hatred of my anti-Zionism. Never, ever elect this guy to any office in Humboldt County. And he will try for one, you can be sure of that as he and Mitch and hidden pols plan out their strategy to install Progs in every office they can in Humboldt County. A new Tammany Hall and Good Ol’ boys and Girls has formed in the Progressive gang and they’re as corrupt as the old one was. Out to win at any cost. And like Mitch’s posted condemnation of Californians as schmucks and drek in so many words shows she’s just here for the elevator ride up like other fame and fortune junkies from out of town come here to make names for themselves at locals expense one way or another, mostly by these types of pols successfully destroying Humboldt County working class employment by lawsuiting to death our anchor businesses and never ever replacing them with alternative jobs so Humboldt County workers and their families can economically survive. This enviro and Prog policy is what keeps Humboldt County poor and getting poorer as these out of town political climbers and fame junkies most every one come from professional families and not working class so they don’t care, they got theirs, they got the professional jobs, the HSU student body economic anchor, they got the homestead pot growers, who cares about Humboldt County workers? And the poor? Forget them and their needs altogether because the Cause demands fighting Big Box stores and again never creating alternatives for the poor forced to remain without the goodies their richer class elites have. No computers at home for poor kids while every Prog activist family has one theirs–as well as plans for colleges the poor can’t even begin to think about. This is class warfare and Progs are its army out to help themselves to Humboldt County goodness without caring about the people who live here, all of us, not just the elite class moved here to mine the resources one way or another without concern for cumulative damages.

    Being able to speak here for the first time in ages due to Mitch’s censorship, I apologize for my burst of protest prose above, that needs quite a few paragraph breaks to read right. And I see I didn’t really finish the troll thing either which was to make the point that “troll” is being “1984” rendered “double-speak” because trolls were creatures lurking underneath bridges who came out and attacked people who wanted to cross over the bridge. These blogs and internet forums are bridges where community members can interact and communicate with each other. It’s a good thing for any community to have its members be able to tell what’s on their minds. But when the host of these public venues uses their position to play political games or just plain ego ones to fuck with people’s ability to communicate with other members of the community, well, that’s your real troll coming out to attack people wishing to cross over their public bridges without having to pay a price for what should be a right honored by the need for accurate information flow. Censorship stops accurate community information flow which in turn harms the community’s response abilities as false pictures are being deliberately created for political reasons, e.g. the censorship of anti-Zionist activist news on most all Prog venues in Humboldt County.

    OK, I’ve just spent too much time trying to figure out what’s going on again with the moderation system. First, my apologies to Steve Lewis for just assuming it was his paranoia regarding his comments not appearing; I’d guess many of his comments have remained in the pending queue, perhaps because of the way the owner of the Herald has things set up.

    There are 1,382 comments sitting in a pending queue at the Herald. I am unable to approve or delete them. The earliest is dated 7/7/2009 and the most recent is dated 11/25/2012 7:34. About 200 date from June of this year. They are probably comments that are from threads I didn’t initiate, which would explain why I cannot control them.

    Most likely, only the Herald’s owner (or perhaps the thread’s owner) can control them. I cannot. They appear without the checkboxes that allow me to select them. If anyone is a wordpress expert and knows otherwise, feel free to let me know.

    (Another point — mail to the Herald will, most likely, not reach me, so commenting would be preferable.)

    (P.S. WOW, if you think what appears is nasty, you should spend a few minutes looking through the garbage in that queue! Not just nasty. Not just crazy. Concentrated nasty crazy.)

    Chairman Mao,
    Finally, a breath of fresh air. Thank you.

    Julie Timmons,
    Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round peg in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They are not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you cannot do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy ones, I see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the only ones who do!

    A “native” – really? Seems to me that you are part of the same problem – A person of European descent claiming primacy by virtue of arriving at the invasion a few days before the others. You, so called, “locals” always bring a smile to my face.

    #51 – “null set?” I don’t know about you, but putting together #23 above, a trip to Eureka, and reading it into the Public was, in the end, exhausting. The room was full, that was good. James Decker gave me a perfect segway with what he spoke of – the Supes. $35/hour based on a 40 hr. work-week (hardly!). I knew I could read it within their Commie 3-minute allotment time, however, I’m pretty sure I got cut short – that’s what was devastating. Nevertheless, they each received a copy. And I passed out letter-sized copies. The “thinking” time is coming to a close. We’re heading into the “action” time.

    Just Watchin #49,

    I’ve thought a while before responding here. My initial thought was to make it a joke, and I’ve done that in the “update” at the top of the thread. But I’m going to take a moment to try to be kind. There is something very mean-spirited about calling a Jewish person “Gestapo” or “mein Fuhrer.” I’d put my reaction up there with the way most black people will react to being called n****r. It strikes me as a different order of things than referring to libtards, democraps, or even calling PJ BJ (though she may, of course, disagree).

    I don’t actually think you are that sort of person, which is why I’m bothering to say this. But please be aware that it’s perceived by me as an extraordinary repulsive thing to do. For non-Jews, maybe some do not realize that.

    Yes. It’s an awkward situation given that neither Eric nor I “own” the Herald. I’d be only too happy to permanently block certain IPs from the entire site.

    Over time, I’m figuring most people will learn to ignore this thread if they decide they don’t really need to hear the thoughts and opinions expressed here. And those who comment here do provide a useful service for people who don’t realize that certain types exist, and must be dealt with on a regular basis by people who are not white, male, straight, American-with-documents, and “Christian.”

    3:00 A.M. P.S.T. December 21st – soon, very soon, more opportunity to shed the ‘old school’ programmed thought process, and usher in the New Age– -continued evolution in consciousness, will be upon us. This time of change is taking place to support new Earth energy. In this new energy there will no longer be a place for secrets, manipulations and falsehoods. The ‘news’ presents all the strife and chaos because they are not given the other to report. Because of this, there is an extraordinary amount of trapped lower energy, as the building of low-level third dimensional chaos took eons to create. We are at both a disadvantage and a marked advantage in communication. On the one hand, we have no material source to point to and say, “This is where the information came from.” On the other hand, we are learning the true source of all ideas and concepts. This is a time for much change for many. The changes are for the Light to more fully manifest in the world.

    Old reasoning are all of the dividing labels you apply to yourself and others , such as: left, right, liberal, neo-con, democrat, republican, conservative, jewish, catholic, protestant, black, white, yellow, brown, red, etc., etc., etc. UNDERSTAND THIS – for those who are locked in old reasoning, it will continue to be so for long times to come.

    I can’t hardly believe you have the nerve to post this utter falsehood, Mitch:

    “Steve and all,

    I’ve yet to moderate (or censor, or trash) one of Steve’s posts anywhere at the Herald. I doubt that Eric has either.”

    Complete lie, folks, from a Mitch and her tag team partner, trained as professional liar, lawyer Eric. Have any of you seen posts from me on Heraldo except on very few occasions and now? Where are all those posts of mine I’ve done only to see my posts disappear or not appear at all because you are censoring them and being a political manipulator, you are used to lying, you are trying to fool others here when I can prove with posts that haven’t appeared that you and Eric, censor me, you almost 100% censorship, Eric, a 50/50% whether he lets my posts stand. Both of you are terrible people in my opinion because you two are like trolls underneath our Humboldt County bridges of communication coming out to attack people trying to communicate their views through the community venues that exist. And not only do you and Eric censor me, you both are slanderers too and in very dishonorable fashion you’ll slander me, let others slander me, then cut off any of my posts defending myself. That is total intellectual cowardice in my opinion and you do it all the time, Mtich. If I’m again censored I won’t be able to defend against this misjudgment of me due to this Heraldo poster only being familiar with the very few posts I have been able to get on Heraldo, and thereby makiing their error:

    “And frankly, as a California native and a Jew I’m sick of seeing Jews from outside California coming here to exploit locals, from Hurwltz to Darryl Cheney to you and the whole Jewish majority of Humboldt County political and environmental activists while our ethnic group only comprises 2% of the population. ”

    A “native” – really? Seems to me that you are part of the same problem – A person of European descent claiming primacy by virtue of arriving at the invasion a few days before the others. You, so called, “locals” always bring a smile to my face.

    Talk to the former acting Chairperson of the Bear River Band of Rohnerville Rancheria, talk to the Bear River’s spiritual leader, talk to the B.R. former Tribal Administrator, talk to the second in command of all seven Lakota tribes, former Chairperson of the Oglala Sioux, talk to the Vice Chair of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, talk to the economic development persons of the Wiyots, the Karuks, and then come back and spout your opinion. I help Native Americans recover their ancestral land taken by us people. I have put 17 years into this effort and still pursue it and still retain all my working N.A. partners as friends except the ones who have passed on, two good people so far.

And isn’t terrible that us Christians are so bad when the world suffers because of Jewish fascism creating the monster of Israel that threatens to bring WW III while we Christians decorate public venues with our horrible Jesus story figures. We are so bad compared to good Jews creating the scenario for another world war. Yes, Mitch, do tell us more..

    This Really Long Post is especially for Mitch and Eric, our closet Zionist shills making sure Humboldt County’s Progressives do not talk seriously about the crimes of Zionist Israelis and America’s hand in these crimes as Israel’s main source of armaments and money to run their racist war against Palestinian Gentiles.

    I announce in my prophetic voice that never fails to manifest future events, (just ask Eric who predicted Obama’s first win, and second) to you two appropriately enough today 12/20/12 to give you a day to mourn, that it is The End of the World for Zionist Israel and for the Torah or religion of Judaism as bearing any spiritual authority whatsoever for Jews or Gentile Christians and Muslims who’s religious beliefs are dependent on the Jewish fables and myths of origin.

    God is using the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict as the staging ground for drawing maximum attention to the perennial problem of two or more ethnic communities fighting for control over the same piece of ground. It’s no accident that the word “terrorism” is derived from “territory”. And because battle for control of Canaan is the oldest recorded territorial battle that is still going on today unresolved, it’s where humanity has to find the solution to who’s land is this: mine or yours?

    In 1989 being a religious visionary* inspired by God I had the first stage of a series of spiritual revelations commanding me to create a special Sword of Peace sanctified by baptisms in our local waters at the seasonal breaks which was to then to be delivered to the people in the Holy Land after the final sanctification baptism in the Jordan River. I did all as spiritually instructed. I am well aware that most of the readership of Heraldo is atheist and unfamiliar the spiritual realm that underlies all material reality, but this consciousness of spiritual reality that I have as a Jewish Christian is shared by the people I work and share my spiritual missions with, Palestinians and Native Americans so any negative opinions of me and my spiritual activism expressed here are virtually meaningless to me except as proof of the atheist fundamentalist core in a local activist community where unlike the old days when Leftism included anti-Zionism, here you don’t talk about it. Because you’ve got closet Zionists controlling the local Progressive political scene. Like Mitch and Eric tag team.

    But give the opportunity to speak freely I am Announcing The End of The World of Judaism today to give you Zionists and supporters of Israel and all Jews loyal to the faith time to reflect and repent of your sins, vast as they may be, starting with you Zionists.

    Why is it the End of the World of Judaism now? Because the brain of Judaism has been found Alzhammered, greatly reduced in size due to forgetting who Jews really are, twice over now. First the forgetting that we Ashkenazim are descended from the same stock that produced the Huns and are just descendants of 7th century Khazar kingdom forced conversion Jewish converts trying be real Sephardic Jews starting with Judaism’s racist mandate: no interbreeding with Gentiles allowed. Producing Ashkenazim’s famous hereditary diseases like Krohn’s disease, so much for Judaism’s biological wisdom from their god..anway, forgetting the Central Asian roots of Ashkenazim Jewry which was at 92% of All Jewry in 1962 according to a major Zionist whistle-blower now demonized throughout the Zionist Jewish community.

    He turned Christian, btw..like I am Christian and Jewish descended through my mother’s and her mother’s side of the family. But thank God, I wasn’t raised in Jewish culture which creates the basic need to battle with everyone, (I still have those genes though..) which is why you see us Jews so prominently in political struggles, politics and big business. We Ashkenazim share same genes as did the Huns. Yes, I do have a smattering of Sephardic heredity from Tunisia and Libya but only Jewish narcissistic idiots would ever think a tiny recessive gene or two qualifies anyone to take another people’s land away from them and kill anyone who resists? That’s pure religious ethnic racist fascism pure and simple and the world’s accepted it only because Zionism piggybacks on gullible Pauline Christians taught to idolize the Bible and give carte blanche to Zionist Jews as we see carried out in reality in your news on TV and radio most every day. We Jews are fucking up the whole Middle East with our Jewish enterprise, Yidrael, Ashkenazim Hollywood, Middle East. Some of us, more all the time, are fighting this perversion of religion to mask territorial greed and racism, the same European combo that annihilated so many of the ancestors of the people I’ve worked with and grown to love and respect.

    Thank God the monstrosity of Israel will end that much sooner now that the real history of Jewish claim to the Land of Canaan is exposed as total fabricated bullshit from beginning to end. The head of Judaism and Zionism has been whacked off by us Jews ourselves.It’s amazing to me to see how reality has manifested the spiritual revelations I’ve gotten. You wonder why and how a former atheist, one time an anthropology major at U.C. Berkeley becomes “born again” a Christian, at age 35 and stay one solidly now for 33 years?
    Well, it’s because of stuff like this happening:

    At Easter, 1979, I went through my own Road to Damascus religious conversion experience that converted me from atheism to what I came later to discover was like a modern form of Gnostic Christianity, i.e., not of the usual Pauline Christian conversion where one’s newly acquired belief in God and Jesus Christ is dependent on accepting in blind faith that God provides proof of spiritual authority in the Bible and nowhere else. My God never did that to me. My God told me the Word of God is in your libraries, on the shelves, from A to Z authors and subjects. This is the Gnostic path, the path of Knowledge of God, but not just book knowledge but direct spiritual experience that confirms the knowledge acquired by intellectual effort. Can’t have one without the other in the Gnostic way vs. the Pauline Christian way that only confirmation in the Bible is true. Because God wrote the Bible and every word of it is true. To Pauline Christians, the ones still going to churches while the smarter ones are turning away in droves. Still, with big bucks behind them fundamentalists Christians make a big noise, like their Jewish counterparts. But their time is over as God cuts the head off of the Abrahamic madness by revealing the Liar’s Club of ancient Judah who wrote the Bible.

    End of the World of Judaism and All Abrahamic religions based on the Jewish myths of origin.

    I tell the history of my Christianity to let you know there’s always been several varieties of Christianity and the mainstream one, Pauline Christianity, is worldwide because it aimed itself through Paul’s domination at acceptance by the Roman Empire which eventually happened and with the major Super Power in the world behind you, you can do anything, even create a monster in the Middle East that destroys Middle Easterners. Can do with a Super Power behind you. A Super Power that is Pauline Christian and believes every word of the Bible is true. But there’s also this in my report:

    1979, converted to Christianity but not traditional. 1980 learn I’m a modern Gnostic Christian, like Carl Jung too was a modern Gnostic. Gnostics were not happy with the Fraud of Israel, Yahweh, or all gussied up as YHWH, the unspeakable name and for good reason now we know the truth. Phony as all hell.

    In 1998 God led me to find Jesus’ and Christianity true heavenly Father who is not Yahweh at all but God Most High, EL Elyon in Canaanite and Hebrew, Hebrew being a derivative of the Canaanite language. EL’s character is totally different from Yahweh, the Hebrew Israelites tribal war god. EL was called the Compassionate One but that means nothing because so is Allah called that and Yahweh, cruel and vindictive gods if there ever were any. But were Yahweh or Allah ever called The Kindly One, The Friendly One, a Highest God who was so mellow Canaanites could make jokes about Him but still turned to EL for forgiveness of their sins which He forgave easily no hard feelings? Unheard in war god worship which the Jews saddled the world with with the Jewish lies starting with Abraham and Moses and the Exodus.

    After learning the biblical identity of the God communicating to me in the spiritual visions and revelations I periodically get was indeed EL Elyon, I had the revelation that there would be an “Armegeddon Choice” for Christians now, the choice of which God they were worshiping and following, Yahweh, the historical son of EL, or EL Elyon, God Most High, the historical Father of Yahweh. Why “Armageddon”? Because EL ruled the Canaanite pantheon of gods, their Divine Assembly which is translated into Greek as Armageddon, as it is also the name of the ancient town site of Meggido, in a strategic valley in northern Israel connecting trade between Egypt and Arabia with Asia Minor and the Mediterranean. Lot’s of battles fought at Meggido and now Revelation’s Armageddon is coming true but as usual not in any way believers have been taught to believe. Remember, 1998, I get the Armageddon Choice revelation. Canaanite EL or Hebrew Yahweh.

    In 2001 Finkelstein, Israeli archeologist, and Silberman, Israeli historian write their book, The Bible Unearthed. (See the current video). These guys were still in their 20’s in college when I got my Armageddon Choice revelation. Well, they like good archeologist and not so good, bible thumper frauds, before them, went looking for archeological evidence to confirm the Bible stories about the Jews. The whole Holy Land’s been combed for sites and none found to confirm the basic foundational stories like Abraham, Moses and the Exodus, David or his son Solomon and their Greater Israel civilization the envy of Egypt and all the world. What Finkelstein and Silberman did find was that Meggido offered the best window for seeing who and when the people who wrote the Bible real historical beginnings. Meggido, being a historic crossroads town, had artifacts from all the differing peoples who came through the pass. These Israeli archeologists can find no traces of any separately identifiable Hebrew existence before 700 BC. 700 BC when Moses is supposedly running around lost in the desert for 40 years with 8 or 900,000 people in 1400’s BC and Abraham, a “Hebrew” according to the Word of God, the Torah/Tanakh, the Bible, founded the nation with his grandson, Jacob turned Israel, “He who fights with EL”

    Well, “He who fights with EL” just lost. Finally. After 2500 years of rounds, successfully pulling off another one of the great Jewish Frauds of history, a completely phony Jewish history with fantastic stories swallowed over a billion peoples today even. But the head’s cut off and the body will die sooner or later without a head.

    Zionism is toast. There’s no historical mandate provable now by Zionists. It was all a fairy tale to bind regional tribes together into a common tribal nation. Like Muhammad copied for Islam to do the same thing. Pauline Christianity supposed wasn’t interested in earthly territory but that’s bullshit as history proves. These Abrahamic religions are territorial monsters and wars for territorial possession and control follow them wherever they dominate societies.

    The End Times of Judaism, Pauline Christianity, and Muhammad’s Islam are here,
    Let’s talk about it. Talk about how Israel now crumbles in the face of fascist racist policy exposure to the world’s scrutiny.

    This post may not be here and me again banned by your closet Zionist Jewish pushy N.Y. Jew come here to teach us stupid and, what were those other slanders Mitch said of the California general population last week? She, who censors my posts because I talk about her looney tunes religious ethnic group’s religious project of Israel in a most disrespectful way. And I do it in my “Semite lovin'” “anti-Semite” way simply because I follow a Good God who wants only peace and not the war god of the Abrahamics who will keep the world at war forever if not toppled down like those statues of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, every totalitarian control maniac using God or Reason or Science like Environmental Doomsday, (remember another snake oil salesman of politically correct yesterday, Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb and Ecotopia, founded on eco-nut nuclear terrorism).

    Ok, I’m running out of steam. Long post because I can and never know now the Mitch at the helm whether I’ll be able to post in the future. If so I won’t give sermons like this special End of the World of Judaism one.

    Celestial Torah Christianity, at: http://biomystic.org/celestialtorah.htm, the way God has lifted Christianity over the coming Abrahamic Highway Pile-Up as the Bible rug has been pulled out from under all three Abrahamic religions starting with Judaism, and doing it in Armageddon style as foretold in code for those paying attention.

    Thank you for your attention. Now let the attack the messenger of bad news game begin..

My God never did that to me. My God told me the Word of God is in your libraries, on the shelves, from A to Z authors and subjects. This is the Gnostic path, the path of Knowledge of God, but not just book knowledge but direct spiritual experience that confirms the knowledge acquired by intellectual effort. Can’t have one without the other in the Gnostic way vs. the Pauline Christian way that only confirmation in the Bible is true. Because God wrote the Bible and every word of it is true. To Pauline Christians, the ones still going to churches while the smarter ones are turning away in droves. Still, with big bucks behind them fundamentalists Christians make a big noise, like their Jewish counterparts. But their time is over as God cuts the head off of the Abrahamic madness by revealing the Liar’s Club of ancient Judah who wrote the Bible.

    End of the World of Judaism and All Abrahamic religions based on the Jewish myths of origin.

    I tell the history of my Christianity to let you know there’s always been several varieties of Christianity and the mainstream one, Pauline Christianity, is worldwide because it aimed itself through Paul’s domination at acceptance by the Roman Empire which eventually happened and with the major Super Power in the world behind you, you can do anything, even create a monster in the Middle East that destroys Middle Easterners. Can do with a Super Power behind you. A Super Power that is Pauline Christian and believes every word of the Bible is true. But there’s also this in my report:

    1979, converted to Christianity but not traditional. 1980 learn I’m a modern Gnostic Christian, like Carl Jung too was a modern Gnostic. Gnostics were not happy with the Fraud of Israel, Yahweh, or all gussied up as YHWH, the unspeakable name and for good reason now we know the truth. Phony as all hell.

    In 1998 God led me to find Jesus’ and Christianity true heavenly Father who is not Yahweh at all but God Most High, EL Elyon in Canaanite and Hebrew, Hebrew being a derivative of the Canaanite language. EL’s character is totally different from Yahweh, the Hebrew Israelites tribal war god. EL was called the Compassionate One but that means nothing because so is Allah called that and Yahweh, cruel and vindictive gods if there ever were any. But were Yahweh or Allah ever called The Kindly One, The Friendly One, a Highest God who was so mellow Canaanites could make jokes about Him but still turned to EL for forgiveness of their sins which He forgave easily no hard feelings? Unheard in war god worship which the Jews saddled the world with with the Jewish lies starting with Abraham and Moses and the Exodus.

    After learning the biblical identity of the God communicating to me in the spiritual visions and revelations I periodically get was indeed EL Elyon, I had the revelation that there would be an “Armegeddon Choice” for Christians now, the choice of which God they were worshiping and following, Yahweh, the historical son of EL, or EL Elyon, God Most High, the historical Father of Yahweh. Why “Armageddon”? Because EL ruled the Canaanite pantheon of gods, their Divine Assembly which is translated into Greek as Armageddon, as it is also the name of the ancient town site of Meggido, in a strategic valley in northern Israel connecting trade between Egypt and Arabia with Asia Minor and the Mediterranean. Lot’s of battles fought at Meggido and now Revelation’s Armageddon is coming true but as usual not in any way believers have been taught to believe. Remember, 1998, I get the Armageddon Choice revelation. Canaanite EL or Hebrew Yahweh.

    In 2001 Finkelstein, Israeli archeologist, and Silberman, Israeli historian write their book, The Bible Unearthed. (See the current video). These guys were still in their 20’s in college when I got my Armageddon Choice revelation. Well, they like good archeologist and not so good, bible thumper frauds, before them, went looking for archeological evidence to confirm the Bible stories about the Jews. The whole Holy Land’s been combed for sites and none found to confirm the basic foundational stories like Abraham, Moses and the Exodus, David or his son Solomon and their Greater Israel civilization the envy of Egypt and all the world. What Finkelstein and Silberman did find was that Meggido offered the best window for seeing who and when the people who wrote the Bible real historical beginnings. Meggido, being a historic crossroads town, had artifacts from all the differing peoples who came through the pass. These Israeli archeologists can find no traces of any separately identifiable Hebrew existence before 700 BC. 700 BC when Moses is supposedly running around lost in the desert for 40 years with 8 or 900,000 people in 1400’s BC and Abraham, a “Hebrew” according to the Word of God, the Torah/Tanakh, the Bible, founded the nation with his grandson, Jacob turned Israel, “He who fights with EL”

    Well, “He who fights with EL” just lost. Finally. After 2500 years of rounds, successfully pulling off another one of the great Jewish Frauds of history, a completely phony Jewish history with fantastic stories swallowed over a billion peoples today even. But the head’s cut off and the body will die sooner or later without a head.

    Zionism is toast. There’s no historical mandate provable now by Zionists. It was all a fairy tale to bind regional tribes together into a common tribal nation. Like Muhammad copied for Islam to do the same thing. Pauline Christianity supposed wasn’t interested in earthly territory but that’s bullshit as history proves. These Abrahamic religions are territorial monsters and wars for territorial possession and control follow them wherever they dominate societies.

    The End Times of Judaism, Pauline Christianity, and Muhammad’s Islam are here,
    Let’s talk about it. Talk about how Israel now crumbles in the face of fascist racist policy exposure to the world’s scrutiny.

    This post may not be here and me again banned by your closet Zionist Jewish pushy N.Y. Jew come here to teach us stupid and, what were those other slanders Mitch said of the California general population last week? She, who censors my posts because I talk about her looney tunes religious ethnic group’s religious project of Israel in a most disrespectful way. And I do it in my “Semite lovin'” “anti-Semite” way simply because I follow a Good God who wants only peace and not the war god of the Abrahamics who will keep the world at war forever if not toppled down like those statues of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, every totalitarian control maniac using God or Reason or Science like Environmental Doomsday, (remember another snake oil salesman of politically correct yesterday, Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb and Ecotopia, founded on eco-nut nuclear terrorism).

    Ok, I’m running out of steam. Long post because I can and never know now the Mitch at the helm whether I’ll be able to post in the future. If so I won’t give sermons like this special End of the World of Judaism one.

    Celestial Torah Christianity, the way God has lifted Christianity over the coming Abrahamic Highway Pile-Up as the Bible rug has been pulled out from under all three Abrahamic religions starting with Judaism, and doing it in Armageddon style as foretold in code for those paying attention.

    I woke this morning, still in a dream. I was on my way to therapy, some type of group therapy. Everything was white. A cliche science fiction set. Two women were at the check-in desk that I had to sign into before entering the room to be fixed. The woman in charge was older, slightly plump, and severe. She didn’t want to be fucked with.

    As I signed in she asked how I was progressing since I had first arrived. I told her I was ok, better. She looked sternly at me, almost squinting, lowering her marmish glasses from bridge to tip of nose. “No you’re not.”

    A strange man, loose limbed and vibrant with color, slipped up and into the chair beside her. The only color in the room, and full of it. His eyes the colorful blue swirl of peacock feathers.

    He peered into me, no solid bone in his body, trying to see something. To understand something. To pronounce something.

    “I think…even the animal in you is changing.”

    You may think JW is less nasty than people who agree with you, Mitch, but some people think calling a woman the initials for a sex act and comparing Jewish people to Hitler is beyond the pale. I understand that some people hate women with strong opinions, especially when they kick the proverbial ass of the misogynists with facts, but such vile attacks are tiresome and take the fun out of debate.

    December 21, 2012 at 8:30 am

    PJ,

    Yes, he’s well beyond the pale. Unfortunately, that doesn’t put him beyond many people who agree with me about various things.

    I try to distinguish, even in my real life, between people who have what I consider a seriously warped sense of humor and people who strike me as simply mean-to-the-core. For reasons I can’t explain, JW strikes me more as the obnoxious uncle who’s always asking the kids to pull his finger than as someone who is truly misogynist, anti-semitic, etc…

    My attitudes on these things have always been different than those of most people I know, so I can certainly understand that others will disagree. There are TONS of “respectable” people who I consider far worse than JW — they just avoid the telltale language, while JW, for his own perverse reasons, seems to revel in it.

    I don’t worry nearly as much about the language as about the subtext., or my projection of it And so I find certain people who would never dream of calling me a faggot to be FAR more hateful and anti-gay than various people who would call me a faggot and far worse. As I said, hard to explain, and perhaps it’s just my own imagination.

    First of all BJ…….I apologized to Mitch. (I assume he saw it, although he never acknowledged it). At the time I made the statement, I did not know that Mitch was Jewish. As for the “BJ” reference, I’ll bet you got a real laugh when BarryO referred to the Tea Party people as “Teabaggers” Do you know what that is slang for, and is typically used as a slur against people of a certain sexual orientation. And this was from the President of the United States! And your “wife beating” and “leg humping” references are not nasty at all. That’s why I once referred to the BJ reference as “Blame Jane”, because someone else is always in the wrong……never you.

    JW,

    I’m about to turn into a pumpkin, so won’t be replying further. Thank you for apologizing, but the apology itself seemed strange, as calling ANYONE Hitler is probably not the nicest approach in an argument, regardless of their religion/ethnicity.

    My assumption is that you enjoy outraging people with words, and think it exposes liberal hypocrisy. My assumption is that, in person, you’d behave towards people in trouble in a decent way. I truly don’t understand why you appear to enjoy the persona you’ve adopted — the hypocrisy seems to me to come mostly from the “other side.”

    There was a short period in my life, I’m somewhat ashamed to admit, when I even found P.J. O’Rourke funny, so I suppose I’m not a very good judge.

    “Look at us, we’re dumbed-down all the way & proud of it!!!” No wonder Moses told the gathered crowd to go amongst themselves and kill each other – even if they woke up tomorrow, it would be too late.
    “The End of the World” – NO, you victim/debtor/slaves – it’s the end of history. His story as written by the assassins. To the Illuminati it’s the end. To the illumined, it’s the beginning. If one can’t recognize evil by now, I don’t know what to say.

For just a moment, forget the right wing talking points, and think about it. Do you really think Clinton’s lying about having sex with an intern was an impeachable offense?

    Sorry you miss the old HH. So do I. I think it thrived on the fact that whoever was doing it was clued into local politics. I’m not. Eric is, AFAIK, but he hasn’t been posting much.

    As for my new censorship regime, basically, what I’ve done is try flushing the comments on threads I control when they consist entirely of calling other commenters names or making nasty cracks having little to nothing to do with the topic of the thread. I started doing that when I noticed I’d become uncivil myself. I withdrew for a week and decided to resume by attempting to restore a bit of civility. This has offended various folks. Oh well — pretty much any action or inaction is offensive to various folks.

    The censorship, if that’s what you’d like to call it, heavily reduces the number of comments that appear outside this thread, and takes nothing away from the threads except a bunch of name calling. If you love name calling, you can always come to this unmoderated thread. As you’ve seen, complaints (though not threats) remain welcome here.

    If you’d like to see more interesting topics, I can think of only one way you could accomplish that, and that’s by posting them on Quick Notes, from which they will get put on the front page if Eric or I thinks they’re worth investing the time in. But that would actually involve doing something beyond whining.

    Boneheaded response. Heraldo didn’t provoke? Talk about rewriting history. By the way, I couldn’t care less if someone likes, or doesn’t like the blog. In my opinion the Herald became what it was because of Heraldo’s constant provocation of all things Arkley. Which brought out his many defenders. That’s how it was. Now, there just isn’t the same kind of posts. Heraldo represented a certain viewpoint in local politics. I’ve always saw the Herald as a site devoted to mostly Eureka politics.
    My personal opinion is that Heraldo is, and always has been Larry Glass. Regardless of his denial. But it really doesn’t matter.

    Mitch has been courageously performing CPR on this site. But without “High Finance” or other conservatives willing to duke it out on emotional issues; there just isn’t the constant debate that made the site so popular.

    If “Rob” is laughing it is because hiring professionals worked. The idiots like “High Finance” were just laughable punching bags. Give JW his due, he has earned his money and succeeded in trashing the discussion here.

    Since Mitch censored my post about how she and Eric and all Progressive activists are conducting a class war in Humboldt County, I will post the truth here:

    Progressives like Mitch and Eric, both coming from the professional class with spendable incomes to give their children a head start in making a living in America, are busy along with other Progressives with similar backgrounds destroying the employment opportunities of working class people in Humboldt County, the people whose parents couldn’t afford to send their kids to colleges who in turn then must work in manual production of the goods and services that build and maintain American homes and businesses. The children of working class people find themselves without the college funds or computers of their yuppie peers like the sons and daughters of Progressive activists who have college funds being set aside and of course have computers for their kids. The children in poor families have to forget about college or computers all together except the school ones if the community can afford them which is that much more difficult because our Humboldt County anchor industries are not there to chip in.

    So it’s a class war that Mitch is promoting here as a N.Y. Jewish activist like Cherney and who knows how many others all come here to conduct their class war against the working class and poor. Progs and enviros destroy anchor businesses and never replace them with employment opportunities. Progs and enviros block any new employment opportunities so Humboldt County remains in economic decline and the working class and poor just get poorer while yuppie Progs are not affected because their incomes come from HSU student body and supporting infrastructure as well as from pot growers, like Eric.

    Give the poor and working class a chance and stop conducting your class war against them. You are not any friends of California, Mitch, as your post labeling all California voters stupid shows and as you war against the local workers and poor also shows. You Progs can think yourselves righteous when you attack Big Boxes and corporate businesses not owned by petite bourgeousie capitalists like Larry Glass and Bill Pierson or Bob McKee, all corporate capitalists making bucks off of locals but because they contribute to Progs and enviros, they get a pass. The whole local Progressive scene is without morality as it destroys the community’s ability to support itself by destroying anchor industries and never replacing their economic role in supporting Humboldt County working families.

    Let’s see what people could be commenting on, and what they are actually commenting on.

    There’s an item pointing to The Eye’s story on Arcata owing the state $2 million, an item on a woman with quadriplegia who is able to control a robot arm, and an item on “not just gun control.”

    The first comment (deleted) on the woman with quadriplegia was an obnoxious sex joke; I’ve probably dumped about half the comments on the “not just gun control” thread for being attacks on other commenters or responses to attacks; and the Arcata situation, which strikes me as fairly significant, has attracted mostly silence.

    None of these three recent items have stimulated much relevant discussion, but this unmoderated thread is going just fine, with all of us discussing whether the blog is what it once was or should be, JW continuing to engage in his odd obsessions, and various opinionated anonymi bemoaning my not being Heraldo. I don’t know what there is to say about any of that, especially given that I’m aiming for civility.

    I suppose I could post a thread called “Arkley is bad” and hope for the best.

    My grandchildren get to open their present from grandpa on Christmas which is a new laptop I could afford to buy them as their parents can’t, a laptop I bought at Walmart at about $200-300 dollars less than can be purchased at any local computer store.

    And don’t hand us the Progressive mantra about Walmart’s practices. If you don’t like Walmart, don’t just try to kill it without replacing Walmart’s place as the only place poor people have a chance to halfway compete with the goodies yuppies enjoy all the time. At least a communitarian activist I made sure I created a workable alternative way for the poor and working class to keep even with yuppie advantages.

    Then 12:53 ¨ It used to be interesting, read all of today´s comments and tell me it´s interesting. Go ahead.¨

    December 23, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    OK, “I’m Laughing.” If you felt the Herald was “the media site which kept an eye on [Arkley],” you are completely correct that it has lost that flavor. That’s because I do not keep an eye on Arkley, and I haven’t seen anyone else doing so. Of course, if anyone wanted to, they could, here or elsewhere. But I’ve never shared Heraldo’s focus on Arkley, and I think he sometimes does good things for Eureka.

    And in all sincerity, if you think the Herald is boring (oh, well) there’s a list on the right of other blogs. Feel free to call it boring, but don’t expect that my efforts are suddenly going to strike you as interesting — in all likelihood, they won’t.

    First Movie Pops misquoted me about taking him to task for calling the old H a ¨provocative asshole¨, then PJ misquoted me about what she imagined what I said, now you too are putting words in my mouth. Then you borrow a page from PJ´s Republican Playbook and refer me to other Blogs if I decry the decline of a once good Blog ¨Don´t like our Party, Get the Hell out!¨

    No one at the helm of ethical discussion I see as this diversion away from my posts shows: Hey, Mitch. I’m accusing you and Eric and dozens of enviro and Prog political activists of being carpet-baggers coming here to Humboldt County to advance your own personal political careers by destroying the employment of Humboldt County’s working class and never ever providing anything to replace this loss of income for working families and for the social services our former anchor businesses provided for our schools and other needed services. You Progs have yours and you don’t care about anyone but your own class of people, yuppies, as you tear down the employment venues for working class people in Humboldt County. As you try to stop the only way poor people can begin to economically survive. You people are heartless monsters without any political program to help Humboldt County’s majority, you just help a handful of fellow elitists petite bougeousie capitalists funding your politics as they making money by overcharging locals. I gave the example of the Walmart computer, the company that exists because it provides a service to poor and working class people your politics want to destroy without replacement, living the working class and poor to fend for themselves without jobs, without adequate social security.

    Greed for personal career gain drives you, Mitch as it drives Eric. We really could use better people immigrating into Humboldt County than you two political carpet-baggers fronting for the elitist yuppie class and exploiting the locals for personal gain.

    Local Dems are discovering that in Sacramento they are insignificant. Local Republicans are discovering that they are irrelevant everywhere.

    You blame your neighbors for the loss of manufacturing jobs? You tie it all to “Progressives?” There’s so much BS in your statements there’s no point in even starting to deconstruct the propaganda.
    And then you praise “Walmart?”
    The reason the good jobs are gone are because of people who worship the rich, and believe their lies over the reality that is right in front of their eyes.
    The ruling class has outsourced their manufacturing to avoid sharing any portion of the profit with the American worker. They blame unions, and the fool believe them. I’m so sick of fools who gave the corps the power to cheat all of us out of a fair share of the work and profits. Not only do they not take responsibility for screwing us all, they turn around blame those of us who have been fighting these Anti-American-Traitors who have no allegiance to our country or its people. It’s not liberals who allowed US Corporations to move the factories to China; it was middle-class, lap-dogs who said no one had a right to stop them.

    And as far as the guy being “Misquoted?” If you see these little marks: ” “, then you’re being quoted.

    Ya know there is so much BS slung on this site by both sides of every argument. Rob Arkley didn’t pay anybody anything to post here. He has a lot of friends. They defended their friend, boss, neighbor; and nobody had to pay for that. No one is all evil. No one is all good. We’re all just people trying to survive the looting of our country.
    If a person wanted to educate themselves about a society turning on itself, then I recommend: “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” By William Shirer. Watching “Good” Germans blame their friends and neighbors for the loss of jobs and infrastructure, and eventually going so far as to allow the corporate/fascist government to slaughter these same friends and neighbors; it’s a real eye-opener. Plenty of “Good Germans” around here. Willing to attack people of their own class, on behalf of the ruling-class, supposedly to stop the evil of “Class Warfare.”
    Well Pal, yeah, yeah; there has been class warfare going on for centuries, and the aristocracy has been winning all along. But they couldn’t do it without the “Jews for Hitler” crowd betraying their own demographic on behalf of the wealthy. Those fools are happy just to ride in the front of the bus, but the rest of us expect and demand so much more: jobs, health care, education, security, freedom to travel, to teach, to learn to live in peace.

    Our challenge, which is also a tremendous opportunity, is to open up to a literally life-changing way of thinking ourselves into existence – ‘Conscious Healing.’

    You can let go of the old. As the old world dies and gives way to the new, so too will our sad and painful memories, which belong in the old paradigm built on fear. Same choice – good/love, or evil/fear.

    I urge those of us who know we have a roll to fulfill, yet feel this to be just out of reach, to step forward. An invitation to take a leap of faith and the courage to move beyond the small self, and embrace the incredible beings we truly are. Recognize the importance of the times we live in and the responsibility that we each carry to overcome that which inhibits us so we can unite for a greater cause.

    Humanity has been afflicted with an all-pervading amnesia created over a period pf thousands of years, as a result of living at a lower level of consciousness. What has been long forgotten is the true meaning our lives have, what we have to offer to others and the world. Our unique gifts and talents can contribute to the collective journey of our global family in these momentous times.

    Thanks for putting your racism on display, HUUFC. While it’s disgusting, at least we know where you’re coming from.

    Living in a county that is only 1.3% black, you people are certainly quick to play the race card.

    Just because you live in a county with a low percentage of African-Americans doesn’t automatically make you a racist, but HUUFC showed his racism on display with his “Gots me a obamaphone!” crap.

    Responding to Just Watchin from another thread,

    Yes, my deletions are not systematic. But you’re right that “reichwinger” contributes just as little to the readability of the Herald as “libtard.” I’ll try to do better, but I’m sure I’ll fall short. I’m not going to turn this into a full time job.

    Only Republican silence their critics, not Liberals.

    A few notes, The United States population is approximately 12% black. The term racism or racist has been so overused as to become useless.

    JW, that was satire. You are showing yourself to be as humorless as The Great Protector.

    P.S. Calling me a ¨moron¨ really hurt my delicate sensibilities. Now, call me a leg-humping wife beater, that REALLY hurts.

    Here we go again, I posted a comment about gun control and information control on the ¨gun¨ thread without using any offensive words or naming any names and The Great Protector deleated my comment. Goering and Cheney would probable agree with The Great Protector. Can´t have any unapproved thoughts out there.

    It´s all good, stay provacative. It drives the Liberals nuts to have a dissenting opinion in the room. The only problem is the Great Protector will delete most of your comments to protect their soft underbelly.
