Koch-Putin Non-Linear Warfare

I. Non-linear warfare is a good way to describe the disruptions to our country. Adam Curtis' 2014 documentary on Non-Linear Warfare directs our attention toward what Putin began. Russian cyberwar operatives call it hybrid warfare -- unorthodox, non-military takeovers of others' assets.

Thanks to Nancy MacLean's Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America (2017, recent National Book Award finalist) we learn of 20th Century civil rights hater and ‘rational racist,’ James M. Buchanan and his program with Fred Koch's boys, Charles and David, to get rid of pesky democratic majority rule.

Trump is now the post-bipartisan player who steps forward to take credit for what's been in the works for decades.

Behind the fake presidency curtain, you'll see that ...

The Charles Koch-James M. Buchanan network has grown three times more operatives on its payroll than the entire Republican party in 2015.

The Koch-Buchanan network operates out of the Mercator Center’s Institute for Humane Studies, at George Mason University, Arlington, VA. The institute still promotes ‘rational racism’ and the Austrian economics spread by members of the Mount Pelerin Society of Europe. Buchanan's training schools, fed by Koch money, create foundations, think tanks for their operatives, who also work in statehouses and universities across fifty states.

The Koch network goal: to establish minority rule over the majority. Think white ruled South Africa before Nelson Mandela.

Koch himself has admitted that his ‘revolution" would not have gotten as far as it has today if his network had been transparent. So it has taken on layers of aliases.

II. In the absence of all the FBI's evidence of Washington's failure to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution, below is a list of what the Kochs' non-linear warfare (money, academics, politics) looks like so far.

For 40 years (and since Buchanan's death in 2013) the Koch network has put forward politicians and academics to run its stealth program, instead:

1. Use James M. Buchanan's "political economy" philosophy (developed as racist cover against the Civil Rights Act) -- a minority and women dominance/exclusion ideology. Then get financial backers, Fred Koch's boys, Charles and David Koch, whose billions pay a national army of radical operatives to run think tanks, university curricula, campaigns, rallies;

2. Convince the public that the billionaire class is being exploited by the "moocher" majority of Americans, so they all should demand tax “reform” and eliminate almost all government but the military;

3. Put Citizens United to work:
Buy governments, state and federal; then impose ALEC legal templates from the Koch toolbox, to write bills to privatize anything, end women's reproductive rights, defund public schools, smash union contracts and bargaining.
ALEC builds Koch's "proxy army" (usually not lawyers themselves) to be the elite minority who rule the majority in America.
ALEC is wholly paid for by Charles Koch's State Policy Network.

4. Strip, at federal levels, Americans' benefits — education, health care; privatize Social Security and Medicare.

5. Manipulate citizens to criminalize each other, fight against each other's bias confirmation "bubbles, crisis-drive everyone to doubt and hate government; call for white nationalism and race war, foment random mass murders. Putin's hybrid (the Russian version of "non-linear warfare) cyberwar troll farms get to help for at least the last three years.

6. Privatize the Post Office, every public institution and national park; increase all fees for their use, “close” due to “lack of use."

7. Deregulate all government oversight on national land, assets, infrastructure, business; gut the State Department, EPA and the rest of government.

8. Suppress the voter rolls of all fifty states by gerrymander, voter roll purges, and disallow voter ID's, arrest or prison records; then do Crosscheck, electronic machine or server tampering. Use Russian troll farm interference to hack servers, campaign databases, create fake political organizations and rallies.

9. Buy the means of media production to character assassinate Democratic party opponents, promote distraction, deflection, wealth, strong man ideologies and religions.

10. Put in place billionaire minority rule --
first, rewrite the US Constitution through a convention to make minority rule ironclad; then run this country for billionaires, since for them, capitalism IS liberty.

The current Koch-GOP network are, literally, a fifth column, according to Nancy MacLean. Now we learn more of their external help from Putin and the Kremlin. To the Koch or Putin networks -- call them cabals, mafia, whatever -- unrestrained capitalism IS freedom. But. They only want liberty for their billionaire oligarchs and elites. Which is why DACA can get kicked out, but Russian oligarch anchor babies get dual passports through a hush-hush program enabled by Trump hotels in Miami.

The Koch and Putin networks don't care WHO rules; they want to change THE rules.

The Koch-Putin endgame is to turn all of America into poor versions of Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Kansas -- a petro-colonial state with infrastructure.

If Americans don't like it, tough. The Ukrainians, Middle East and Eastern Europeans didn't like it, either.

Ask the Kochs. Ask Putin. Americans brought this on their own degenerate, undeserving selves -- blacks, Latinos, women, whites, anyone who expects help from government -- because they are the WEAK. Putin operatives technologically facilitate 'identity' conflict drama, now using Trump and the NRA.

Anyone who resists them -- the young, leakers, resisters, Al Franken, Democratic Party donors, the FBI -- is The Enemy.

III. M. Buchanan wrote Chile's constitutional rule that required a super-majority -- 2/3 -- vote for any new laws. Chile acquired a “locks and bolts” constitution that enabled the capitalist junta's rule.

Watch for media reports of ‘revolutionary reform' —
"constitutional reforms" (stripping old civil rights out)
"modernization," (privatization and purges in education, media),
"self financing," (everyone provides for his/her own medical, schooling, retirement) -- while you are told to rejoice in your restored individual "freedoms" to own weapons, consume, produce, save and invest.

If you get even a whiff of talk about our Constitution that changes "checks and balances," to "locks and bolts” against majority voting, it is sponsored by the Kochs, enabled by Putin, no matter who else the ‘front’ men are.

A heartfelt thank you to those who sent valentines. I love you and DU. Long may democracy run.

Bari Weiss Speaks To the 'Me Too' Hard and Middle Left On Bill Maher

Perspectives from one recent TV discussion on balancing freedoms, ending patriarchy, gender issues, and what the sexual revolution can be.

When Maher keeps his mouth shut, he learns much from women.

State of the Union joke

Barack Obama, the English Queen and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there, they see a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil says it's for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call Russia, and talks for 5 minutes. When he's finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

Next, Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished, the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.

Finally Obama gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the call is "on the house."

When Putin hears this, he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Obama gets to call the USA for free. The devil smiles and replies, "Since Trump took over, the country has gone to hell, so it's a local call."

Oprah's Speech Upon Receiving The Cecile B. De Mille Award (FULL version)

Love to DU At The End Of A Hard Year and The Start of Another

As we gather round the table
To say a prayer for those we love
All the words that will be spoken
Will never be enough

To encompass all the feelings
That our brittle hearts can bear
All the storms that rage inside us
Fill our organs up with air

And the sound it makes - is an honest song
Our hearts sing an honest song

And all the time spent catching raindrops
All the time we've spent in bed
All the hours we have wasted
We will never see again

So be good with what you're given
For it's all you have to give
We are only passing shadows
In the mighty wind

And the sound it makes - is an honest song
Our hearts sing an honest song

So though I tremble in the darkness
In the cold and frozen snow
I am grateful for the winter
For the winter comes to show

That our trouble is never over
And our work is never done
But with the turning of the season
We will always see the sun

And the sound it makes is an honest song
Our hearts sing an honest song
Oh may our hearts sing an honest song

Ta-Nehisi Coates On Stephen Colbert -- His Take on Black Protest, Obama and How Far Gone We Are

Hope is for us to go to pastors for, not Coates as a black intellectual.

The discussion on whiteness is important.

From The Root: Cornel West Wants A Sit-Down With Ta-Nehisi Coates

This is not an endorsement of West as much as a look at his reaction to Coates reaction to him.

This shouldn't be about our taking sides. Allies listen.
