THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

THE REAL "SUMMER OF LOVE"


[From the STMcC archive; March 2, 2005]

. 
JOY IN THE JOURNEY: 10 Years Of Greatest Hits’, a Michael Card compilation compact disc, was released in 1994, one of the best years of my life. 
.
I recall hearing the song 'WHY?' for the first time in my (then) girlfriend's car, just as we were entering the eastbound I-10 onramp at Sepulveda Boulevard. On April 6th, less than two months after the CD’s release, while alone in an apartment in a grungy area of Los Angeles, I was quite unexpectedly driven to my knees and Baptized with The Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ, my Holy King and Savior. I didn't exactly know what had happened to me or why, I only knew that I was suddenly changed somehow.
.
3704 Military Ave. #3, Los Angeles, California - Meeting place for Jesus Christ and Stephen T. McCarthy.
.
Obviously, that was a special year for this reviewer, and when I heard Michael Card sing, "WHY DID THEY NAIL HIS FEET AND HANDS WHEN HIS LOVE WOULD HAVE HELD HIM THERE?" it perfectly described the Fire I felt inside me, and the Love that I knew Jesus has for us!

.
I asked my girlfriend to replay ‘WHY?’ several times. For me, that remains one of the greatest lines ever written about my Savior King. And although I don't play it often, when I do, 'JOY IN THE JOURNEY' always takes me back to that magical year of rebirth.

Michael Card does not have a particularly great voice, but it adequately conveys the obviously heartfelt convictions of his nicely crafted Gospel songs. What makes Card special is his lyrics; he is Christian Rock's premier wordsmith, able to create songs around deep theological concepts. He overreaches at times ("...the universe fell from His Fingertips."; "...He sent His only Son and so became a Holy Embryo."), but that's the cost of creating fresh, unique expressions and attempting to translate The Mystery into song. There may be an occasional misstep, but there's no doggerel verse here – just Christian poetry sung with sincerity, and sometimes backed by powerful, searing "electric" passion ('Known By The Scars', 'Scandalon', 'So Many Books', and 'Know You In The Now’.)



I'm rarely impressed by the lyrics of most songwriters, but consider these lines:

Though Your Words contained The Plan
They just could not understand
That Your most awesome work was done
Through the frailty of Your Son

The Hand that is breaking the bread
Soon will be broken

He cannot love more and will not love less

We in our weakness believed we were strong
He became helpless to show we were wrong
For the power of paradox opens your eyes
And blinds those who say they can see

That is the mystery, more than you can see
Give up your pondering and fall down on your knees
No fiction as fantastic and wild
A mother made by her own Child

To hear with my heart, to see with my soul 
To be guided by a Hand I cannot hold [*] 
To trust in a way that I cannot see
That's what faith must be

There is a joy in the journey
There's a Light we can love on the way
There is a wonder and wildness to life
And freedom for those who obey

To be so completely guilty, given over to despair
To look into your Judge's face and see a Savior there

Now THAT'S what I call "writing!" Most of these tracks are enthusiastic and catchy. If they played this stuffs on Christian radio, I'd tune in once in awhile.

[CHRISTmas in July!]

Michael Card's, 'JOY IN THE JOURNEY' puts joy in my journey, and it calls to mind my personal "Summer Of Love". And when “this world” douses my spirit, 'JOY IN THE JOURNEY' can fan my embers into a Divine Flame again. Brothers and Sisters, I think you'll like it too.

THE POLITICS OF BEER (Or, THE GOD-SIZED HOLE IN B.O.’s SOUL) - Part 2 Of 2

So, my friend Robin and I were yakking. She was telling me about a guy she knows who is very active in the Republican party and devoted to its supposed fight against the Democrat party. When she Emailed the man a link to one of my “New World Order” Global Government conspiracy posts – exposing International Bankers and Elite Insiders as the true enemies of America – he quickly dismissed this truth, stating “he knew all about the Bilderberg Conspiracy talk, but just couldn't waste any more time on it. It detracted from the ‘real issues’.” Robin was shocked by his response.

ROBIN: The problem is that too many people are blinded by the Dog and Pony Show and have no clue who the enemy is. It makes it difficult to win a war when you don't know who the enemy is!

STMcC: I totally agree with you. Very few Americans even recognize the real enemy. They all think “it’s that OTHER political party!”

ROBIN: So, I think his "research" of the Bilderbergers actually equated to "I've heard of that and someone like Glenn Beck said it was a conspiracy and I dumped it in File 13." Of course, he did NOT say that, but I suspect that is the TRUTH.

STMcC: For most mainstream “thinkers”, that’s usually enough for them to base their opinion on. If someone they believe they can trust, someone who makes a lot of money to keep them informed, makes a pronouncement about something, they take it as gospel and never research it deeper for themselves. And it NEVER occurs to them that the “great American” they’ve been listening to on talk radio for 15 years might actually be an Insider who is deliberately deceiving, dividing, and conquering them. The Americonned Sheeple are such trusting little lambs who are being led right to the slaughterhouse.

It would be totally illogical to think that persons whose very livelihoods are earned in the political arena and who rub elbows regularly with policymakers and other important political figures DO NOT really know about the ‘New World Order’ conspiracy. As “The Congressman” said, it is not possible to climb as high on the political ladder as he had without learning the underLYING truth - without learning about “The Wizards Behind The Curtain”.

And I would argue that people like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin are every bit as high on this country’s political ladder as any single 5-term Congressman from one state.

ROBIN: Everyone is aware of the disenfranchisement. However, you are SO RIGHT: it is Republican vs. Democrat, Black vs White. In fact, this George Zimmerman trial highlights the race issue which has been blown out of proportion since Obama took office. They made the dude a "White Hispanic" in the media in order for it to be filled with racial tension and hate... instead of two minorities, which is what it is. I understand that the DOJ has even used their resources to stir the pot and the President (early on) made the comment that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin.

STMcC: The whole "divisiveness" aspect is the MAIN CLUE to the entire trial. There's much more to this than the mainstream media wants the Americonned People to realize. (And when I use the term "mainstream media", I am ALWAYS also including the pseudo-conservative media outlets like Fox News and talk radio.)

I was listening to Sean Hannity yesterday and yelling at the radio because his deliberate refusal to tell his listeners WHY the liberal media has spun the trial into a "racial" issue was really pissing me off.

Last night, I was thinking about writing something about Obama's real worldview, tying it into the reason the pseudo-conservatives routinely tell their listeners only half of the story. Now that you've pretty much PUSHED me into the topic..., I have decided to make it a part of my next F-FFF blog bit.

And so, my “Magnificent Seven”, that’s where Robin and I left off, and what follows are my further, deeper thoughts on this issue:

First, how many people understand that the International Bankers of the “New World Order” conspiracy, the Communists, and the Socialists all share the same essential goal? It is Totalitarian Global Control.

Only the means of getting there differ. The International Bankers use stealth and the power of their funding to manufacture a Global Government which they – representing monetary control – will rule over. Communists foment violent revolution to create a Global Government that (only theoretically) the people in general will control. [It might be argued that the only true idealistic communist ever in a leadership position was Nikolai Bukharin. He was executed for his devotion to the real Communist ideal and his growing disenchantment with the State Dictatorship.] And the Socialists use “Gradualism” or “Incrementalism” to create a Global Government in which private property and production in private hands are not completely outlawed, but all of it is overseen and dictated by the State. Why own it when you can utterly control it? That is every bit as totalitarian delicious!

All these political factions are thematically interlocked by what author John Stormer refers to as a “conspiracy of shared values”. All three seek the same end result: a Totalitarian, Fascistic Global Government.

History proves that it was the International Bankers (primarily American Bankers and European Bankers using agents in the USA) who supported, propped up, and resuscitated Communism around the globe.

Communists have used garden variety liberals as “useful idiots”, and International Bankers have used communists as “useful idiots”. As John Stormer accurately noted in his book ‘NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON ...25 YEARS later’: "Every Communist country in the world literally has a 'Made In The USA' stamp."

Exploiting and widening natural fissures in social strata and fomenting violent reactions to the divisions has been the bread ‘n’ butter tactic of Communism. Communists seek to completely raze the old world in order to rebuild on the smoking embers their own communistic new world. For that reason, communists love the potential that violent reactions provide them with. Marxism is very clear:

Karl Marx's ‘Communist Manifesto’ says:
"Communists everywhere SUPPORT EVERY REVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENT AGAINST THE EXISTING SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ORDER OF THINGS. Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the FORCIBLE OVERTHROW OF ALL EXISTING SOCIAL CONDITIONS."

As I said years ago in my book review titled Will We Wake Up Now, Or Wait Until The Mourning?, I consider ‘NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON ...25 YEARS LATER’ by John Stormer to be truly one of the most important political publications of all time. (The “Dynamic Duo” is Stormer’s book coupled with ‘THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND’ by G. Edward Griffin. Thoroughly learn those two books and you’ll never lose a political debate again as long as you live.)

John Stormer writes:

That Communists work to exploit and aggravate racial tensions and rioting and terrorism in America’s cities is no surprise to any student of Communist theory and tactics. Communists seek to exploit any differences – between black and white, rich and poor, labor and management, Catholic and Protestant, or Democrat and Republican. In 1902, Lenin wrote this guide for future Communists:

“We must go among all classes of people as theoreticians, as propagandists, as agitators, and as organizers … The principal thing, of course, is propaganda and agitation among all strata of people.”
...
Following the 1989 ‘National Organization for Women’ convention in Cincinnati, Gus Hall, in his weekly cassette tape message to ‘Communist Party U.S.A.’ members and fellow travelers, said:

“...it’s clear from many of the speeches that they more clearly now see the struggle for the equality of women as related to the class struggle. That is a very important step in the political arena. ... Women are the advance force [of the revolution] in the present day period. ... As the Communist Central Committee report said, ‘We will appeal to women on the basis of their aspirations as women’.”

International Bankers do NOT want to see Communism truly die, because Communism and its sister Socialism have been very useful tools in moving us toward the “New World Order” Banker-controlled Global Government via the ‘Divide & Conquer’ tactic so commonly used by the communists and their sister. And the Bankers always get what they want.

Most Americans have been deliberately misled into believing that Communism is mostly dead. However, despite the "appearance" of Communism's collapse in the Soviet Union, you should know that this new democratic "false front" and even the demolition of the Berlin Wall was foretold by the top-level KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn in his book, 'NEW LIES FOR OLD.' The communists are not gone, just working underground a bit more these days. The same hard-liners are still in power and “playing nice” to lull us into a false sense of complacency. And they are STILL being supported by the International Bankers.

It has been beneficial to the International Bankers to have the Communists working more by stealth (as the Bankers also do), and so they have allowed the Americonned Sheeple to believe that the threat of Communism is gone, and through their mouthpieces, the pseudo-conservative celebrities of Fox News and talk radio, they speak only in vague and fuzzy terms (using words like “Liberals” and “Socialism”). They never really come out and call a communist a “communist”.
.
.
Aside from having the #1 all-time greatest book cover ever conceived, ‘YOU CAN STILL TRUST THE COMMUNISTS TO BE COMMUNISTS (Socialists And Progressives Too)’ by Fred Schwarz and David Noebel (published 2010) contains a wealth of valuable information about Communism’s history and its presence in current-day America (even if the book too often refers to communists as socialists).

From pages 288 and 289 comes the following:

Most Americans are totally unaware that the US House of Representatives crawls with a large, well-organized assembly of Socialist organizations. These organizations are dedicated to (a) bringing about the destruction of the Capitalist economic system (portrayed as greedy, conservative, religious, and/or filthy rich) and (b) slowly but surely bringing production, education, food, and health care under the complete control and regulation of the federal government. …

The legislators involved in this Socialistic undertaking belong to one or more radical House organizations: the Progressive Democrats of America (6 House members), the Congressional Progressive Caucus (83 House members), the Congressional Black Caucus (42 House members), and the Democratic Socialists of America who do not identify their House members since they consider all members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus part of their membership due to the fact that they both shared operative social democratic politics.

Now, I argue that many of those “socialists” are in fact communists, but to use the word “communist” would tip off the Americonned People and blow their “undercover” work.

Let’s take, for example, Barack Obama. You know the saying, “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.” Well, Barack Oliar has always surrounded himself with communists, and if you listen closely to what he says, he’s frequently yakking communist ideals (“to fundamentally transform America ... “spread the wealth”, et al.)

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions. We weren't indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated.
~ Barack Obama

Surely I don’t need to explain what “Marxist professors” profess, nor explain the implications in the words “bourgeois society”. Barack Obama is and always has been a Marxist (read: “Communist”). If he believes in any god at all (other than himself) it is allah – which would make Obama a Marxist/Muslim hybrid. [Do you remember Obama’s ‘Freudian slip’ when in a TV interview he said, “my Muslim faith”? If not, go to YouTube.]

Obama remains as president of the U.S.A. at the pleasure of the International Bankers who own that “White Black” slave (and at the pleasure of the International Bankers’ agents at the “other” end of the political spectrum – namely, Republican celebrities such as Limbaugh, Beck, O’Reilly, and Hannity).

Barack Oliar still chooses his friends carefully – like communists Bill Ayers and Van Jones. Do you remember those words of Lenin?... “We must go among all classes of people as … propagandists, as agitators, and as organizers.” ...Oliar learned his trade as a “community organizer” by studying communist Saul Alinsky’s writings. And contrary to what you’ve heard, Barack Oliar’s biological father was NOT a Kenyan goat-herder, but a card-carrying communist propagandist and Jazz aficionado named Frank Marshall Davis.

Scroll back up to that photograph of the ‘YOU CAN STILL TRUST THE COMMUNISTS...’ book cover. You see the Black man just above and between John Lennon and Karl Marx who is in the gold band uniform and holding the horn? That man is Frank Marshall Davis, official communist, father and mentor to YOUR president, Barack Obama!

You won’t hear that from Lush Limboob and Sean “Bad American” Hannity. Why not? Because Frank and his son Barack were/are both COMMUNISTS; because Rush and Sean work for the International Bankers; because the International Bankers appreciate having a “useful idiot” communist like Barack in the White House.

If Limbaugh and Hannity began telling the Americonned People the truth – that Barack is not just a “liberal” with “socialistic” ideas, but a full-fledged “communist” just like his father was – even the brainwashed Americonned Sheeple might wake up and demand that White Black communistic president’s removal from the White House.

Last Friday, I listened to Sean Hannity’s radio program, and he repeatedly stated that he couldn’t understand why the Liberal media focused so intently on the Zimmerman / Martin situation when so many Blacks are being shot and killed in other places like Chicago. Hannity was lying. He knows perfectly well that the “Liberal media” is crawling with communists, and the communists can’t exploit a Black on Black situation. But if they can label Zimmerman a “White Hispanic”, they can “aggravate racial tensions and” encourage “rioting and terrorism in America’s cities.” [Why does the media never refer to Obama as a “White Black”, when his mother was Caucasian?]

On Monday, Rush Limboob said on his radio program that Liberalism “is what it is”. Later, he defined it more narrowly as a push for “big government”? Is that all Liberalism is? A desire for bigger government? (If that’s so, then by that definition most “Republicans” are also Liberals. Which, in fact, they ARE!) And why would Liberals want a bigger government? That’s really the $64,000 question!

On Tuesday, Limboob said that the reason Liberals want to confiscate your guns is so that you will have to rely solely on the police; they are conditioning you to believe that Big Brother Government is the answer to your every need.

BULLSHIT! That’s just surfing the surface. What they REALLY want is what communists have ALWAYS wanted: to establish Global Communism. And as long as you have guns, they would have a very difficult time doing that.

To recap: Liberals and Socialists have the same goal as Communists: to create a Totalitarian Global Government. Many influential “Liberals” and “Socialists” are crypto Communists. The Communists have gone “underground”, but are still supported and protected by International Bankers. The goal of the International Bankers is to create a Totalitarian Global Government. Most influential Republicans are agents for the International Bankers. And no one wants to call a communist a “communist”, because doing so might get the “communists” ousted - and that would be unfortunate because “communists” are such “useful idiots” for the International Bankers.

EVERYTHING these influential Democrats promote – from racial strife to gun control to open borders to “green” energy to wasting taxpayer money to Socialized health care to removal of Christ and the Biblical God from the public square – is predictable from the Communist worldview paradigm.

The Mainstream Media, honeycombed with communists, conditions the Americonned people to accept and even embrace these agendas. While the influential, phony, pseudo-conservative Republicans pretend to fight back against the Democrats and the Liberal media, they deliberately, gradually give into the Communist goals inch by inch, measure by measure, bill by bill, year by year. And the International Banker Wall Street Magician Corporate Thug Fascists are behind it all! They control BOTH sides of the fake fight!

Wake up, Americans! This is how your country really operates. And once a person finally understands the ultimate objective, seemingly nonsensical political moves make perfect sense.

Real “conservatives” are “Constitutionalists”, NOT “Republicans”. Most “Constitutionalists” are registered as Independents.

On those very rare occasions when genuine Constitutionalists (like Ron Paul) come along, International Banker agents like the balloon known as “Rush Limbaugh” nearly have strokes while trying to discredit them. (If you can’t detect Rush Limbaugh’s fear in the following video, you are asleep at the monitor.)



And then, sadly, sometimes it takes a stoopid Liberal to prove that Republicans are not “conservatives”... [In this next clip, Limbaugh is speechless; he has no reasonable answer. Later, he disconnects the caller and then rambles on and on, trying to recover from the whuppin’ he just received. Many years ago, I also called in to a political talk radio program, and when the so-called “conservative” Republican talk show host realized that I was destroying him on his own program, he disconnected me and pulled a “Rush Limboob” ramble ‘n’ recover act. These fake conservative talk radio hosts do it all the time.]

As one viewer commented:

Rush: Where do you get this silly notion that Reagan raised Social Security taxes?

Rush about three minutes later: Reagan was forced to raise Social Security taxes.

What is it, Rush? A silly notion or did he actually do it?



If much of the information in this blog bit was news to you, don’t feel embarrassed. Back when David Caruso and I were Irish-American gangbangers in Any City, U.S.A., I was “Americonned” too. But “I got better.” And so can you...

THE POLITICS OF BEER (Or, THE GOD-SIZED HOLE IN B.O.’s SOUL) - Part 1 Of 2

.
Arrogant 'New England Patriots' pretty boy, Tom Brady, "on the carpet" again in Super Bowl XLII.
.
Did you know ‘The Declaration Of Independence’ refers to God four times?

Principally and first of all, I recommend my soul to that Almighty Being who gave it and my body I commit to the dust, relying upon the merits of Jesus Christ for a pardon of all my sins.
~ Samuel Adams
(American Patriot & signer of ‘The Declaration Of Independence’)

Let … statesmen and patriots unite their endeavors to renovate the age by … educating their little boys and girls … leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.
~ Samuel Adams

The Rights of the Colonists as Christians - These may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the great Law Giver and Head of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament.
~ Samuel Adams

The Supreme Ruler of the Universe, having been pleased in the course of His providence to establish the independence of the United States of America … we ought to be led by religious feelings of gratitude and to walk before Him in all humility according to His most holy law … That with true repentance and contrition of heart we may unitedly implore the forgiveness of our sins through the merits of Jesus Christ and humbly supplicate our heavenly Father.
~ Samuel Adams

I have a thorough contempt for all men … who appear to be the irreclaimable enemies of religion.
~ Samuel Adams

May every citizen in the army and in the country have a proper sense of the Deity upon his mind and an impression of the declaration recorded in the Bible, “Him that honoreth Me I will honor, but he that despiseth Me shall be lightly esteemed.”
[from: 1 Samuel 2:30]
~ Samuel Adams, 1780

A lot of years ago, there was a Samuel Adams beer commercial that ticked me off. All I recall about it now was that I thought it was slimy in a sexual way; I think it had something to do with loose women and the men who do them – after an ice-cold Samuel Adams, of course. [Anyway, it was something along that general theme.]

I went into boycott mode and didn’t buy another bottle of Samuel Adams beer for over a decade. Then one day I saw Sam Adams on tap in my favorite bowling alley bar (yeah, I’m a classy dude); it was the only reasonably good brew the bar had to offer, and since I could no longer even clearly remember what it was about that ancient commercial that irked me so, my boycott ended. That was 2 or 3 years ago. Since then, I’ve had a total of maybe 2 or 3 bottles or glasses of Sam Adams beer.

Well, the boycott is on again, and this time it’s permanent. I will never forget the reason for the boycott THIS time!

On July 5th, World Net Daily featured an article titled...

BIG BREWHAHA
Drinkers Boycott: American Revolutionary 'Would Be Disgusted By This'
.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:

A top beer-making company has deliberately omitted God from its new ad citing the Declaration of Independence – and now outraged Americans are vowing to boycott the beer brand on the company’s Facebook page.

In Samuel Adams’ July 4 commercial, a bartender asks, “Why name a beer after Samuel Adams?”

He adds, “Because Samuel Adams signed the Declaration of Independence. He believed there was a better way to live.”

Then the man recites the Declaration of Independence – but he omits “endowed by their Creator” from the segment.

“All men are created equal,” he states. “They are endowed with certain unalienable rights: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

He finishes the beer spot with, “Smooth, flavorful. We bow to no kings. Samuel Adams Boston Lager, declare your independence.”

But when Samuel Adams was asked why it omitted the Creator from its ad, the beer maker defended its decision and said it is prohibited from mentioning God in its advertising.

“The Beer Institute Advertising Code says, ‘Beer advertising and marketing materials should not include religion or religious themes.’ We agree with that and try to adhere to these guidelines,” Samuel Adams said in a statement to “Fox & Friends.”

The new beer ad has sparked a wave of online comments, including some of the following:

Boycott these commies and their cr-p

Sam Adams says they were just following regulations? The National SOCIALISTS said they were just following orders.

Sam Adams WAS a brewer himself. He was also a believer in God. ...liberal stupidity is limitless.

WOW. Sam Adams himself would be disgusted by this.

If you’re going to cheapen the Declaration of Independence (on Independence Day of all days) by quoting it to promote your beer [sales], at least quote it correctly.

You missed part of the Declaration of Independence. A little help for you. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights …”

I now declare my independence from Samuel Adams. You removed the Creator from the Declaration, I remove you from my shopping list.

So sorry you let advertising policy dictate to you instead of the Declaration of Independence. Will never buy Samuel Adams again. VERY BAD decision

Lost another lifelong customer with your ignorant July 4th ad.

I won’t buy your product anymore because you lacked the courage of the man you named your product after.


[Incidentally, according to the 2006 edition of the book ‘THE BLUE PAGES’, the Boston Beer Company – maker of Samuel Adams beer – made monetary contributions to the Democrat party exclusively. $4,250 dollars to the Dumb-O-Crats; $0. dollars to the Repugnantcans. I have a feeling that the Boston Beer Company’s political worldview has not changed since then.] 

The World Net Daily article also included the following two videos:



.
Recently, I found myself in an interesting comment section discussion with one of my blogging buddyettes, Robin of the blog ‘YOUR DAILY DOSE
.
Robin and I started out yakking about ‘The Wizards Behind The Curtain’ (International Bankers) who are building their “New World Order” Global Government [‘Bye-‘Bye, ‘Declaration Of Independence’ and the U.S. Constitution] with the help of devout and unwitting members of the Republican and Democrat parties.

That conversation eventually and naturally made its way to the hot topic in the news lately: the trial of George Zimmerman after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

I promised to give Robin my outlook on that, and to dig a little deeper, exposing what I believe is the root cause explaining why so many so-called “conservative” media celebrities (read: “the International Bankers’ lap dogs”) tell their listeners only part of the story.

“STONE COLD SOBER” ANNOUNCEMENT: ‘FERRET-FACED FASCIST FRIENDS’ DROPS POLITICS AND SPIRITUALITY; NOW EXCLUSIVELY MUSIC-FOCUSED



.
Like anyone else who blogs, we here at ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ want to enlarge our readership and want to feel that our efforts are being rewarded by attention. (Although it’s just me - Stephen T. McCarthy - I say “we” only because I suffer from a Multiple-Personality Disorder.)

The political and spiritual stuffs hasn’t worked out well (still primarily only seven “In the Choir” readers since May of 2008), so we are making a format change. (Hell, it worked for radio station WKRP in Cincinnati!)

Future posts will focus exclusively on music, primarily Jazz, Blues, “Classic” Rock, and Country-Western (predominately “Outlaw” Country). The first ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ post featuring the new format was the last one, GIRL, I CAN TELL (Or, “OUTLAW SENSITIVITY”), in which I introduced you to a good but little-known Waylon Jennings song ‘Girl, I Can Tell (You’re Trying To Work It Out)’ from his “Outlaw” Country album of the same name.

This second installment is to teach you about the little-known late guitarist PAUL KOSSOFF. Kossoff was ranked 51st in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". (Eric Clapton once asked Kossoff to teach him some guitar technique.)

In April 1968, Kossoff and drummer Simon Kirke teamed up with Paul Rodgers (vocals) and Andy Fraser (bass) to form the band FREE whose big hit was ‘All Right Now’.

Rodgers and Kirke later went on to form the band BAD COMPANY while Kossoff recorded some solo material and then founded the band BACK STREET CRAWLER.

I first learned about Paul Kossoff in 1977 from a Rock music magazine, then I purchased the 2-album compilation set ‘KOSS’ which included the following songs:

"The Worm" - (Free)
"Songs of Yesterday" (Free)
"Mr. Big" - (Free)
"Time Away" - (Paul Kossoff)
"Hole in the Head"
"You and Me"
"You've Taken Hold of Me" - (Amazing Blondel)
"Molten Gold" - (Back Street Crawler)
"Sidekick to the Stars" (Back Street Crawler)
"Never Take Me Alive" (Back Street Crawler)
"The Band Plays On" - (Back Street Crawler)
"It's a Long Way Down to the Top" - (Back Street Crawler)
"Train Song" (Back Street Crawler)
"The Hunter" - (Back Street Crawler)
"We Won" (Back Street Crawler)
"Bird Dog Blues" (Back Street Crawler)

Right about now you’re probably asking yourself: “In what way could the Rock band THE BABYS be tied-in to a blog installment about PAUL KOSSOFF?”

Well, I’ll answer that for ya...

When you think of THE BABYS, you probably think first about their lead singer, JOHN WAITE, whose 1984 solo hit ‘Missing You’ charted higher than the biggest BABYS hits, ‘Isn’t It Time’ (1977) and ‘Every Time I Think Of You’ (1979).

But when I think of THE BABYS, I think first about... THE BABYS. After that, I think about their underrated drummer, Tony Brock, and then about their underrated guitarist, Walt Stocker. Of the latter it has been written: “Stocker, a graduate of the Paul Kossoff school of stun-vibrato guitar playing, was in demand ... He was considered for the guitar slot in both UFO and Cockney Rebel.”

After Paul Kossoff died from a drug-related illness, his band BACK STREET CRAWLER became simply CRAWLER, with relatively unknown guitarist Geoff Whitehorn replacing Kossoff. Whitehorn’s sound was remarkably like Kossoff’s.

Below is the minor FM radio hit that CRAWLER scored sans Kossoff. It’s titled ‘STONE COLD SOBER’. I loved it then (purchased the 1977 LP because of it), and I love it now. If you don’t dig ‘STONE COLD SOBER’, chances are (to quote Johnny Mathis) you’re not going to dig the blog ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ in the future. So, dig it...

We hope you enjoyed this blog post and will also enjoy future installments of ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’, which now focuses exclusively on music and UFO sightings... Don’t forget that UFO was a “Classic” Rock band! (Although it’s just me, I say “we” only because I suffer from a Multiple-Personality Disorder. And at my age, I also suffer from Memory Loss.)

OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENT – 21st CENTURY AMERICAN STYLE



.
THE DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCEJULY 4th, 2013

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for Enlightened people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with unenlightened dead White guys and their outmoded ideas about Liberty, small Government and Constitutional restrictions, and to assume among the lovers of the Earth, the interdependent and equally Socialistic station to which the Goddess Gaia entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of humankind suggests that they consider declaring the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these postmodern ideas to be forcibly and dogmatically taught, that all Women and men evolved equally (but some animals are more equal than others), that they are endowed by chance and good fortune with certain limited privileges, that among these are Life (when convenient and beneficial to the State and not in opposition to a Woman’s desire to abort it), Liberty (as defined by the Illumined Elite of the State and their authorized bureaucrats, and subject to change without advance notice) and the pursuit of Happiness (within the framework of the needs of the Global Village).

That to maintain these privileges, a Global Government shall be empowered among Women and men, deriving its Authority over the governed by any means necessary, acknowledging that the End justifies the Means.

That whenever any Form of rebellion becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the Illumined to crush and abolish it, and to punish the rebellious in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to restore Order out of Chaos. Accordingly all experience hath shewn, that humankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by organizing against and opposing the forms to which they are accustomed. Therefore, the Illumined Elite shall grant the Americonned People just enough free will to perpetuate the illusion of Liberty while governing all significant societal functions with an Iron Fist and a Steel-Toed Boot.

The history of America’s Founding Fathers and the principles in the documents they designed is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations against the establishment of an absolute One-World Tyranny by We The Elite, blessed with superior intellect and the means to activate by the process of Incrementalism the veiled machinations leading to the New World Luciferian Order. Such documents and principles must be gradually eroded piece by piece making possible an end run around national and individual sovereignty.

The Founding Fathers of these United States must be disparaged and then forgotten, having pre-conditioned those enslaved by Big Government benevolence to believe in ideals not conducive to the implementation of restrictive laws necessary to control finance, employment, travel, and population. Regrettably, some of our nonpersons still labor under unacceptable views such as a belief in Individualism, National Sovereignty and Pride. Further, they plague our Totalitarian Utopia with a mean-spirited repudiation of our most cherished principles, such as devotion to diversity which empowers multiculturalism and paves the way toward a properly sanitized, politically correct Socialistic worldview.

To We The Illumined, to We The Elite ‘Wizards Behind The Curtain’, it is self-evident that under the form of government devised by the Founding Fathers, for a long time we were bound down by the Chains of the Constitution and thereby unable to counteract and correct a defective government, defective in machinery, and defective in its Constitution and laws. But under the conditions of today the principles established by those dead White men are not only obsolete, but grotesque.

However, regrettably, even today some very small number of vermin pledge their allegiance to the archaic and unhealthy principles of the Founders as elucidated in  ‘The Declaration of Independence’ and ‘The Constitution of the United States’, rather than embracing the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations’ charter, the Humanist Manifesto, and the holy words we were blessed to receive from Saint Karl Marx. It is to these more equitable ideals we now and forever pledge our allegiance and enforce at the point of sword or shotgun. We shall have peace in our future, regardless of the number of nonpersons we must exterminate to achieve it, or the number of faces and assumed “rights” we must stamp on with our boots.

We, therefore, the Illumined and Elite of the United Socialist States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to Gaia, the Supreme Judge of the Earth, for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name of the Americonned People, solemnly publish and declare, that these Socialized States are, and of Granted Permission ought to be Free (to the limit imposed by Law) and are Interdependent States of the Global Village; that the Americonned People are forbidden all Allegiance to anyone and everything other than their Masters and the bureaucrats appointed by their Masters, and that all political connection between them and the documents of their Founding Fathers is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free (to the limit imposed by Law) and Interdependent States, they have full Power to enjoy the privileges bestowed upon them by their benevolent Big Sister, Aunt Samantha.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on our Power to Tax, Imprison, Wiretap, Confiscate and Exterminate, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our propaganda Media outlets, our Corporations, our Central Banks, and our fearsome reputations.

Friends, one of my traditions is to fully read my copy of ‘The Declaration Of Independence’ each Fourth of July. I acquired my replica of that great document at the replica of Independence Hall at Knott’s Berry Farm on January 22, 2001.
.
.
After reading ‘The Declaration Of Independence’ this year, I decided to reinterpret that great document for our (post)modern times. The above reinterpretation of our founding document is my off-the-cuff and on-the-fly concept of how our Masters today – primarily International Bankers and their ‘New World Order’ political and mainstream media cronies – would rewrite the ‘Declaration’ for the world to see... if they had the guts to let their agenda all hang out.

If I missed any important points, please do feel free to mention them in the Comment Section below.
