Here Is Possibly (Totally) The ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Who Shot A BLM Officer And Cop, For Freedom

So here’s a story that’s just beginning to get some traction: Over the weekend, a California Highway Patrolman and a BLM officer were shot – nonfatally, thank goodness — near a campground in Nevada County, California, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Details are still coming out, but authorities have identified the shooter, who was also wounded in the incident, as Brent Douglas Cole, 60. Randall Gross at Little Green Footballs did some searching, and appears to have found Cole’s twitter account and Facebook — he warns that these have not yet been confirmed to belong to the shooter; we would add that it seems fairly likely, however, since the Brent Cole on both those accounts links to a pretty strange bunch of goobletygook “legal documents” (google docs link) filed by Cole in Nevada County. We’ll assume this is probably (but not absolutely) the guy, because how many Brent Douglas Coles are there likely to be in the rural Sierras, by which we mean OF COURSE THIS IS THE GUY, JESUS. And this guy is a real piece of work — a chemtrails enthusiast, birther, and, according to one of his alleged legal filings, a man who’s “being persecuted for being a gun owner” by “unwitting or unknowing accomplices of a seditious conspiracy against rights instituted by foreign powers enimical [sic] to the United States of America.” We can hardly wait for the Stupidest Man on the Internet to proclaim him a “Leftist.” Read more on Here Is Possibly (Totally) The ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Who Shot A BLM Officer And Cop, For Freedom…

Stephen Colbert: Can We Stop The Black Lesbian Robot Apocalypse? Probably Not! (Video)

Well, humanity, it was a nice ride, but it’s over. Stephen Colbert brings us news of the end — a computer program has finally beaten the Turing test — maybe — fooling a third of human questioners into thinking it was a 13-year-old boy. “Which makes sense if you think about it. Like a teenage boy, a computer sleeps a lot and spends all day on the internet.” But that’s not the scariest news Colbert found.

Ron Paul Says He Wants A Revolution, Rand Paul Takes Money From People With Minds That Hate

Hey, kids, here’s a big surprise! Ron Paul thinks it’s high time for patriots to stop letting the federal government push them around, what with its “laws” and “healthcare mandate” and all that. What’s more, he thinks that there’s really no longer any reason to wait to start watering the ol’ Tree of Liberty with the blood of tyrants. Speaking in the former capitol of the Confederacy Monday in support of another Lost Cause, Ken Cuccinelli’s campaign for governor of Virginia, Paul said “We need someone to stand up to the authoritarians … They’re dictators.” …He stressed that the constitutional “right to keep and bear arms” was not for hunting, but to allow rebellion against tyrannical governments. “The Second Amendment was not there so you could shoot rabbits,” he said. “Right now today, we have a great threat to our liberties internally.” This talk of the need for revolution is certainly not unfamiliar to gun-fondlers, but as far as we can tell, this is the most direct call that Ron Paul has made for actually shooting people. Right now, today. Well, sure. why not? What could possibly go wrong? Read more on Ron Paul Says He Wants A Revolution, Rand Paul Takes Money From People With Minds That Hate…

Remember when your neighbors used to laugh at you for hoarding survival seed kits and gold coins lo these many years? Well, you’re about to get the last laugh because while they’re stuck living under the iron boot of Saul Alinsky John Roberts’ socialist regime like sheeple, you are locked, loaded, and ready for revolution. And today that revolution is upon us. Now that poors can get health insurance because the demon Supreme Court sided with that commie muslin NOBAMA fella, the only way to defend our freedom is armed insurrection! Mount up and ride to the sound of the gun says former Michigan Republican Party spokesman Matthew Davis.

2012: A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy As the Human World Breaks Apart

The modern idea that human civilization would collapse in 2012 supposedly goes back to another overextended American empire on its last legs, that of the Maya. But like so much wrong thinking now popular in today’s United States, this concept made its first impression on the nation’s nervous consciousness through the teevee screen. In Search Of, the syndicated paranormal program hosted by Leonard Nimoy, claimed that the Mesoamerican long count calendar came to an end on December 24, 2011. (That date has moved a year forward in today’s paranoid circles.) You are probably waiting for the “Ron Paul connection,” at this point, and it is this: According to Leonard Nimoy reading a script for a pseudoscience documentary series in 1977, the end of the Mayan calendar would bring a cataclysmic earthquake, the collapse of the dominant civilization, and the creation of an internationalist New World Order. Actual scholars of the ancient Mayan culture, however, believe the end of the calendar would bring not disaster, but a wonderful celebration. Who’s right? WHO WILL WIN?

Wal-Mart’s Billions and the Art Museum of Cruelty: A Christmas Carol

Here is a number we’ve seen bouncing around this week that really makes us want to fire up the old Yule Log, in the sense that the “Yule Log” is a tightly bound human centipede of the richest hundred humans in America, lit on fire: The six heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune have about $93 billion between them, more money and financial assets than the combined 100,000,000 Americans at the bottom of our crushing economic system. With half of all Americans now officially poor or “near poor” — which is somehow worse than plain poverty, as “near poor” means you don’t qualify for the minimal safety net this country generously offers some of its most desperate people — it is not a complete surprise that the rich must be very rich indeed these days. But the idea of six heirs to a corporate fortune built upon the destruction of American manufacturing, American small business and the American working class owning more than 30% of the entire nation, well that is the kind of thing that makes us think of Charles Dickens, and the holiday of abject misery and constant war against the impoverished called “Christmastime.” Read more on Wal-Mart’s Billions and the Art Museum of Cruelty: A Christmas Carol…

Obama Won’t Veto Law That Turns Military Into ‘Domestic Police Force’

Hooray, the White House now says that President Obama won’t veto the National Defense Authorization Act. It flew through the House today and should pass the Senate shortly. Along with the usual gazillion dollars for the Pentagon to buy death machines from military contractors via lobbyists/former members of Congress, the NDAA will also allow the military to seize U.S. citizens on U.S. soil and throw them in Gitmo forever. Remember how the terror prison at Guantanamo Bay was originally filled, after 9/11? And remember how a fraction of the prisoners held and tortured there for years had anything to do with Al Qaeda, because they were just random goat herders or whatever, picked up because the military and the CIA paid a per-head bounty on “terrorists”? Yeah well same thing now, but in the United States! Read more on Obama Won’t Veto Law That Turns Military Into ‘Domestic Police Force’…

Republican Strategists ‘Frightened To Death’ By #OWS Movement

While the Occupy Wall Street movement can sometimes seem to be more about tents and police and pepper spray than the crushing economic injustice in this country, Republican political operatives are having no trouble at all figuring out exactly what #OWS wants. “I’m so scared of this anti-Wall Street effort. I’m frightened to death,” top GOP strategist Frank Luntz said at the Republican Governors Association meeting in Orlando this week. “They’re having an impact on what the American people think of capitalism.” Uh oh, looks like the dupes are starting to figure out capitalism isn’t fair. The GOP better have some pat answers ready when their former stooges in the destroyed middle class start asking fancy questions about income equality!

Kansas Hero Emma Sullivan Refuses To Apologize To Sam Brownback

High school senior Emma Sullivan made an honest joke about Kansas governor/wingnut Sam Brownback, on Twitter, and wound up in the principal’s office, where she was ordered to write an apology. This followed the governor’s office calling the schoolgirl’s principal to demand “respect” after seeing the tweet. Today was the deadline to turn in her letter, which would obviously be insincere, as she is an intelligent liberal young lady and Sam Brownback is a cretinous teabagger who is the spokesmodel for What’s the Matter With Kansas? And Sullivan now says she’s not writing any such apology. This means war. UPDATE: And now Brownback has apologized to Emma Sullivan, because he now blames his staff, who “over-reacted to this tweet,” ha ha ha.

Illiterate Scott Walker’s Illiterate Tweet Removed By Staffers

Wisconsin Kochsuckler Scott Walker was so excited to get some time off for Thanksgiving, before he is recalled for being a giant jerkoff and also making Wisconsin number one in job losses. (How’s that “Wisconsin Is Open For Business” slogan working out, Walker?) The governor apparently typed the charmingly idiotic message pictured above all by himself, with whatever thumb wasn’t in his mouth. And then it was removed, presumably by his embarrassed staffers, who will soon be unemployed like everyone else in Wisconsin, the end.

Sneaky 1% Now Hiding In Custom $200K Vans That Look ‘Normal’ On the Outside

When you’re ready to start breaking necks and taking scalps, nothing says “oh there’s a rich guy” like seeing some Town Car parked outside a fancy restaurant or dildo shop. And the richest 1% have figured this out, too! That’s why the latest trend for the world’s kleptocrats is not some ostentatious European sports car, but a humble van that actually hides a luxury vehicle interior.

Oh, just pepper-spraying sitting students in the face, macing old ladies, stomping peaceful protesters, yanking women around by their ponytails, destroying libraries and bloodying the faces of America’s citizens.

Scenes From a Civil War: Cops Vs. Crying Mothers

Hello, retired Police Captain Ray Lewis! Today has been interesting. Sorry we haven’t had more to offer. The real story is happening as a live event, created by real people, and the total absence of political leaders is one way to both judge its authenticity and dismiss any real need for “news media” — even when that “news media” is just some ongoing joke/word-terrorism project, like Wonkette. Anyway, here are some bits from what’s going on, tonight, in America. Read more on Scenes From a Civil War: Cops Vs. Crying Mothers…

#OWS Says It Will Shut Down NYC Thursday

So what will Occupy Wall Street do now that it’s been run out of Zuccotti Park and another dozen encampments nationwide? Well, there’s this: Facebook event here, although we strongly caution against “liking” things on Facebook when these are the things that attract riot cops and weird acoustic DARPA ear-pain weapons, because the easiest way to find out what The People are doing (or sympathizing with) is to look on their Facebook pages.

Surprise, Homeland Security Coordinates #OWS Crackdowns

Remember when people were freaking out over the Patriot Act and Homeland Security and all this other conveniently ready-to-go post-9/11 police state stuff, because it would obviously be just a matter of time before the whole apparatus was turned against non-Muslim Americans when they started getting complain-y about the social injustice and economic injustice and income inequality and endless recession and permanent unemployment? That day is now, and has been for some time. But it’s also now confirmed that it’s now, as some Justice Department official screwed up and admitted that the Department of Homeland Security coordinated the riot-cop raids on a dozen major #Occupy Wall Street demonstration camps nationwide yesterday and today. (Oh, and tonight, too: Seattle is being busted up by the riot cops right now, so be careful out there.) Read more on Surprise, Homeland Security Coordinates #OWS Crackdowns…

Elizabeth Warren Hates ‘Job Creation’ For Sympathizing With Jobless

How do you prove you hate “job creation” in America? According to a new GOP commercial attacking Elizabeth Warren, you do this by expressing sympathy and support for the jobless Americans taking part in the Occupy protests nationwide. The ad was created by Karl Rove’s anus Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, some wingnut consulting firm that is legally a fetus in America. The commercial’s ominous narration says, “Fourteen million out of work, but instead of focusing on jobs, Elizabeth Warren sides with extreme left protests.” So it’s apparently “extreme left” to protest joblessness, and it’s not “focusing on jobs” to support the jobless who are protesting joblessness, is that right? This is going to be a tough campaign year for the Karl Roves of this world! Read more on Elizabeth Warren Hates ‘Job Creation’ For Sympathizing With Jobless…

Foreclosure Mill Law Firm Costume Fun: Dress As Homeless Families

The first reaction most decent people will have when seeing these pictures of last year’s Halloween costume party at the foreclosure mill law offices of Steven J. Baum is overwhelming disgust and nausea, followed by an overwhelming desire to storm these offices on Monday and “make an example.” But the employees of Steven J. Baum are, ultimately, wage slaves to the institutionalized cruelty and dehumanization that defines America’s economic system. The people pictured here look like legal assistants and secretaries and paralegals and receptionists and file clerks and low-level litigators, all probably underwater on their own mortgages and all much closer to economic catastrophe than they’d care to admit — this firm is in a suburb of Buffalo, after all. It is crucial that the Steven J. Baums of the world force their own wage slaves into opposition against the rest of the nation’s wage slaves. This is why Oakland’s police officers, many of them military veterans, are so ready to viciously attack other military veterans. It’s why a “Tea Party” of Ron Paul supporters was hijacked by the billionaire Koch Brothers and turned into a manufactured outrage of middle-class whites against middle-class whites (and the minorities and lower classes, as always).

#OWS Protester Scares Off Product-Plugging MSNBC Blowhard

Here’s a talking head from the MSNBC cable entertainment channel trying to get some video interview content for his political show. The guy getting yelled at is apparently “Dylan Ratigan,” and his colleague is wearing a shirt from another MSNBC talk show, we guess? And this protester is going along with the interview until the television personality — a careerist Wall Street business promoter who recently became a “populist,” is that right? — starts promoting the “Dylan Ratigan website” and also saying that what all these protesters need is for Election Day to be a federal holiday.
