Yapping About Gitmo and Terrorists

Guantanomo prisoners in 2008
Prisoners at Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba: What crimes have they committed that Bill Clinton and George Bush have not?

by Kevin Alfred Strom

THE NEOCON TALK HOSTS like Hannity and Limbaugh and their coevals from the “liberal” side are making a lot of noise about the “terror suspects” who have been imprisoned at Guantanamo without trial and without legitimate charges for nigh onto a decade now.

The Republican shills say “we’ve got to be firm with these terrorists and protect Amurrica!” The Democrat shills claim to stand for the Constitution and “American values” by calling for the closing of Gitmo, though lately some have waffled on that. Both are liars, but millions of deluded Americans identify with one side or the other and have a rah-rah-for-our-team attitude, slavishly following the blogs and talk shows that keep them agitated, angry, blind to reality, and supporting one wing or another of the Evil Empire.

Freedom of Association: A Criminal Act?

eeoc logoby Kevin Alfred Strom

IT WAS RECENTLY reported that a London bank had laid off some employees — nothing unusual about that these days. But there was a buzz of discussion about the fact that, horror of horrors, they had supposedly laid off foreign workers in greater proportion than British ones. One writer said that the bank “should be reported to the Equalities Commission.”

One sees the same kind of furor amongst the TV-watchers here in America if a business fails to favor some members of, as the Newspeak expression goes, a “protected class” — like homosexuals or non-Whites. The only real difference is that our Commissars are called “EEO officers” instead of “Equalities commissioners.”

Torture, Terror, and the Washington Regime

A READER WRITES that, in his opinion, the questions Jesse Ventura asked about waterboarding were the least uncomfortable that could have been asked. And, he adds, we can’t “descend to the moral level” of Saddam Hussein, since we’ve already passed that point:

“Why is the subject of torture being confined to waterboarding? Other forms were used in Iraq, as everyone knows.

“And in terms of increasingly ‘resembling Saddam Hussein,’ he was convicted for the murder of 148 people committed a year before the U.S. began supporting him.

The Forgotten Tenth Amendment

James Madison, father of the United States Constitution. He sought to protect us from the tyranny of an omnipotent legislature. Sadly, with the demise of the Tenth Amendment, Madison's dream has died.
James Madison, father of the United States Constitution. He opposed democracy, saying democracies are "as short in their lives, as they have been violent in their deaths," and sought to protect us from the tyranny of an omnipotent legislature. Sadly, with the demise of the Tenth Amendment, Madison's dream has died.

by Kevin Alfred Strom

THE MAIN DEFENSE the Founders set up to protect Americans from the tyranny of kings — and the tyranny of the majority — was the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

It says, in effect, that the central government possesses only those powers expressly granted by the Constitution and no other powers whatever. And that is how it was understood and applied until the second Roosevelt demanded and received Lenin-like economic power (“for our own good,” of course) and supine judges allowed it despite its obvious illegality.

Immigration: Not About Race?

WHILE I WAS in a restaurant the other day with a few friends and their children, I saw another group enter the establishment and take a table nearby. It was a handsome-looking White family, a father and mother with a teenage son and daughter. I was close enough to hear parts of their conversation.

The father was almost a double for a writer I know personally, a rugged-looking brunet of medium height with piercing eyes and ruddy complexion, about 50, with a tall, fine-haired slender blonde wife perhaps ten or twelve years younger. The children were well-behaved, good-looking, and intermediate in appearance to their parents, to whom they bore an obvious family resemblance. They weren’t speaking English.

What is Wealth?

inaugural noteWhat is money, really? What is wealth? And what do ‘economic stimulus’ and war and foreign aid do to our wealth?

by Kevin Alfred Strom

based on the American Dissident Voices broadcast of July 10, 2004

IN 1957, Julian Huxley wrote about the dangers the world might face in 2007. He told of a world wracked by environmental destruction, falling standards of living, the despair and desperation of the hopeless, and a decline in the creative spirit that makes all culture and science possible.

He glimpsed the future in racially-mixed India, where he saw the streets teeming with the homeless in such numbers that one had to pick one’s way carefully along the sidewalks at night to step over the sleeping bodies, wrapped in a few filthy rags and nothing else — hundreds of thousands living their lives, voiding their wastes, and making their hopeless, pathetic yet fecund love right in the open on the pockmarked pavement, and sharing that “home” with dirty, starving, roaming cattle.

One evening he saw a policeman directing traffic at a busy intersection as twilight fell. As the darkness deepened, he saw a man and a cow approach the policeman from opposite directions, curl up at his feet and begin to compose themselves for the night, right there, almost touching him — with the officer taking no notice whatever and continuing with his duties. It was what was ‘normal.’ It was what was expected. It is where we’re headed unless something is done.

I’VE RECENTLY BEEN EXPERIMENTING with two plugins (for the popular audio player Winamp) which can create superb music mixes for personal listening, and can even form the core of an Internet or over-the-air broadcast station. As many of you know, I’ve been involved with broadcasting and radio in one way or another for four decades now, so these virtual devices really caught my eye.

The first add-on is Sqrsoft’s free Advanced Crossfading (ACF) plugin, which not only eliminates gaps between songs, but also takes out the several seconds of silence that sometimes plague the beginning and end of downloaded mp3s that you might get from iTunes or Shareaza or your friends’ thumb drives, and that’s not even mentioning its main function — mixing the very last seconds of one track with the first few seconds of the next track, just like a radio station disc jockey might do.

The second is the Sound Solution (SS) v1.1 audio processor by Alessandro Tomassini, a truly amazing piece of free software which can do almost anything that $5,000 FM broadcast audio compressors and limiters can do. One of the main problems with listening to downloaded mp3 and wma files is the wide variation in level that one encounters — one track will be so soft you have to turn the volume nearly all the way up, while the next is recorded so hot it might cause permanent hearing loss at the same setting as the first. SS solves this, and can also make your audio stream more consistent for broadcasting over the ‘Net or via an FM broadcast transmitter large or small.

kevinalfredstrom.com: Recovery from Attack

by Kevin Alfred Strom

AS READERS have doubtless noticed, this site has been down for several weeks as we recovered from a malicious hacker attack — and in the process I learned quite a bit about content management systems security, php code, and database management and recovery.

The site is still not fully restored yet, but, as you can see, most of the content is back and we will be making continual improvements, fine-tuning the site’s features, and adding new content too. Watch this space!

Benjamin Freedman Article Creates Interest

Benjamin Freedman and Common Sense
Former Zionist operative Benjamin Freedman is shown here with a 1960 edition of the newspaper that was the primary venue for his writings after WWII, Common Sense. Though his theorizing on Jewish origins was flawed, his revelations of Zionist intrigues have significant value to students and historians.

by Kevin Alfred Strom

WHEN I PUBLISHED an updated and annotated version of Benjamin Freedman’s speech “A Jewish Defector Warns America” a few weeks ago, it generated many hits, links, and comments. Thanks to those who wrote about the improved audio quality over previous incarnations of the sound file (and yes, I do know that there are still a few skips that I couldn’t correct), and also to those who sent in thoughtful remarks about Freedman’s ideas and my criticism of his version of the Khazar hypothesis.

The Institute for Historical Review just published an excerpt and link to the speech, the Riddles of the Universe science and politics blog republished the speech in full two days ago — and all in all, more than 500 sites have republished the article in one form or another.

Benjamin Freedman’s warning is one of the most important documents of the 20th century.

by Benjamin H. Freedman

      listen to the speech (43 minutes; mp3)

Introductory Note:

Benjamin H. Freedman was one of the most intriguing and amazing individuals of the 20th century. Mr. Freedman, born in 1890, was a successful Jewish businessman of New York City who was at one time the principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Company.

He broke with organized Jewry after World War II, and spent the remainder of his life and the great preponderance of his considerable fortune, at least 2.5 million dollars, exposing the Jewish power structure which dominates the United States.
