2016 ‘Horns of a Dilemma’ presidential false choice to be gored Left or Right with wars, looting, lying of the one US rogue state. Alternative: Demand .01% arrests to annually save millions of lives, trillions of dollars

dilemma: Greek for “two premises,” likened to accepting the painful and dangerous impaling of your choice of a bull’s left or right horn.

PuppetGov’s sharp 5-minutes of our dilemma:

1-minute of logic with option to creatively respond to the false choice of being on the “horns of a dilemma”:

Americans are faced with the false choice in the 2016 presidential election between the Left and Right arms of one US rogue state. The Left had to steal the primary elections, demonstrated in a report by the President of the American Statistical Association (the single most prestigious and authoritative for statistics), but this is just the latest move of the rogue state.

Americans should reject both the Left and Right horn.

Americans who vote for Hillary or Trump are voting to continue the following policies, with 95%+ who would never agree if honestly briefed on the facts:

  • The wars are Orwellian unlawful; not even close to legal. If there’s one law responsible citizens must know, and to honor the awful sacrifices of all our families through not one but two world wars, it’s war law. Did you know?
  • The real solutions to correct the Robber Baron-era system are monetary reform (direct creation of debt-free money for productive infrastructure) and public banks (at-cost and in-house credit to reduce government borrowing costs by 50%). For just one example: if your state had their own bank with a 5% mortgage and credit card, all state taxes are abundantly paid for, with no other taxation ever needed. The benefits of just a few reforms are conservatively calculated to $1,000,000 per average US household. Literally, you have nothing more valuable for your time than to learn this. Did you know?

Of course, almost all Americans don’t know.

I use rogue state in its academic meaning: a nation constantly breaking international law with both threat and harm to others, ruled by authoritarians who restrict rights and proliferate weapons of mass destruction. Since WW2, Earth has had 248 armed conflicts. The US started 201 of them (81%). These ongoing illegal Wars of Aggression have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men. The sum of 30 million means the US has war-murdered more than Hitler’s NazisDid you know?

If you need further evidence of election fraud through unaccountable electronic voting machines, “leadership” and corporate media manipulated primaries, and the general characteristics of both Clinton and Trump beyond being illegal rogue state supporters driving We the People further and further into debt slavery, look hereherehereherehereherehere for further documentation as clear as we’ve covered so far.

There is an alternative to voting for bullshit democracy: Demand .01% arrests

The responsible citizen response to these Emperor’s New Clothes obvious crimes centered in war, money, and lies is to demand arrests of US Left and Right .01% leaders.

Please read that sentence again to appreciate its elegant power and truth.

The alternative is to lie to one’s self, nation, and global community to allow ongoing crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions. This is not a responsible alternative, let alone to take the criminal fraud further to vote the Left or Right’s chosen puppet to bullshit for further crimes.

In fact, unless one wishes to condone, bond, and join such evil and bullshit, one cannot vote for it. If one wishes to stand as an American under our ideals and Constitution, one must demand arrests for such outrageous crimes.

The categories of crime include:

  1. Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
  2. Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
  3. Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).

US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

  • Aug 1, 2016 – Trump or Clinton?

    Have you ever wondered how big the black budget really is? Or how to win the clash of civilizations? Or whether James prefers Trump or Clinton? Then this is the podcast for you! Join James for another edition of Questions For Corbett as he fields a range of questions covering everything from soil erosion to Brexit and everything in between.


    • Carl_Herman

      James Corbett is against both Trump and Clinton. He advocates volunteerism. He explains at 39:40.

      • He is not alone, because I am as well. Tear down the Fascist wall from my Pro-Choice stance against the establishment twins!

  • diogenes

    Time to find a chain saw.

  • Silverado

    You know, in a way I agree. Trouble is, is that because the oligarchs of the DemocRATs hate him and likewise the oligarchs of the Republican party also hate him makes him…palatable to me (and millions of other Americans), especially compared to his criminally inclined opponant. And besides, reality says you’re choice is (basically) one of these two will be elected. So if not Trump you’re supporting crooked Hillary whether you actually pull the voting machine lever or not. Maybe I won’t be quite holding my nose but I’m willing to give him a shot as he really couldn’t do any worse than what this country has been through clear back and counting Bullshit Bill Clinton on up right to the criminal war mongers of today…

    • Carl_Herman

      Silverado: do you hear how low your expectations are? Trump can never ever ever ever “make America great again” while he’s voiceless about the points of this essay: lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, bankster looting, and constant “official” lying.

      Whatever you do, without demand for arrests for obvious crimes, won’t move anything forward, I respectfully assert.

      • Silverado

        Reality (as in choices) is low so are one’s expectations. Like I said Carl (whom I tend to agree with on a lot especially on “arrests”) I’m willing to withhold my judgement until I see him in action if he’s elected. Who know’s? Maybe the voice comes with being elected? Maybe when he’s President his word will be worth what it has been as a successful businessman. Because in that world his word really is worth apparently quite a lot. And I find it difficult to believe he’s changing everything about his persona just to be President, especially regarding his word – his personal honor, let alone his voice.
        Anyway, he’ll find his voice although I nervously anticipate and await the results I believe it will be He in a landslide. Frankly any improvement, like his America First and Make America Great – Again themes, where the country turns inward to heal from the carnage (as well towards the many new jobs he’ll create) that Obama, crooked Hillary and their neocon cronies before them have wrought, would be more than timely and welcome. Even and especially imo from Donald Trump.

        • diogenes

          I don’t know how old you are, Silverado, but if you’ve had more than a dozen years of adult life in America you’ve had time to learn from observation that the system reproduces itself and maintains a steady policy agenda in key sectors — finance, economy, labor, foreign policy, authoritarian social and institutional practices, policing, etc. Both “parties” and all “plausible” candidates play along. The game is about what color hat will be worn this time by the executioner puppet.

          Thinking you can continue to play along with this game and expect different results is plainly fantasy. Your hopes for Trump are as unreasonable as someone else’s for Hillary, or for Bernie, for that matter.

          Until we make more fundamental changes in how we as citizens approach and interact with the electoral and legislative institutions of our constitutional government — particularly in the matter of “parties,” which President Washington warned us about over 200 years ago — the system will go on producing the same results. It proves it every four years.

          If you can’t see this for yourself, it suggests either that you can’t see much or that you are not being honest about your purposes. Any argument for continuing the status quo is for continuing the status quo. So what your argument voices and avows and promotes is exactly that.

          For specific suggestion along these lines and historical background see parts 4 & 5 of my essay, The Distribution of Wealth In America, posted elsewhere on this site.

        • Carl_Herman

          With all respect, those themes are always empty from every candidate, especially when he fails to address the essential topics of the US rogue state.

          That said, anyone could have a “Scrooge conversion” and be a game-changing hero. If Trump is moving from ego and not initiated into evil, perhaps he’ll choose a hero role.

          But I don’t like speculating with hope when the history is consistently for empire.

          We the People have a voice to end the empire with the lawful tool of arrests, which is my best advice for people to make a positive impact on our condition. Withdrawing consent is among the first actions that seem essential.

  • awb22

    Why don’t you like Trump? Because he’s a Tea Partier and you’re an Occupier?

    They both have a common enemy in the establishment and status quo. I think you seriously have to question your position if you can’t support a populist candidate.

    • Carl_Herman

      awb22: You didn’t read carefully enough to respond to the main point of the essay. Try again beginning here: “Americans who vote for Hillary or Trump are voting to continue the following policies, with 95%+ who would never agree if honestly briefed on the facts:”

      Read that and then respond to the facts of why I assert if voters were informed of the facts they would never vote for Trump or Hillary.

      • awb22

        Guaranteed Clinton will be a 3rd Obama administration. However, you haven’t established Trump is a neocon. Too many people are quick to judge Trump without any basis in fact. The electorate is scared, because they’ve never been presented with a choice, which you call a false choice. You’re painting Trump with the same brush as all of the establishment, and all I’m suggesting is give him a chance. We can’t do any worse. While I recognize and understand he doesn’t represent the Occupiers, he at least represents the other populist movement, the Tea Party. Will Sanders backers back populism, or will they cut and run? Where are your facts?

        • Carl_Herman

          I agree that Clinton will continue Bush-Obama crimes.

          But again, with all respect, you didn’t read carefully enough. The four bullet points after this part: “Americans who vote for Hillary or Trump are voting to continue the following policies, with 95%+ who would never agree if honestly briefed on the facts:” are game-changing and essential policies Trump never ever ever ever addresses (and even supports with ongoing Wars of Aggression, backing Israel’s War of Aggression on Gaza, calling to expand torture) and that Americans would never consent if fully briefed.

          So, just to make sure the dots are connected: Trump is a false choice because no competent leader would/could ignore the facts of a US rogue state. Those of us who are leaders rather than sheeple can easily explain, document, and prove those facts that Trump either ignores or is truly ignorant of (both cases disqualifies him for top political leadership, of course).

          Leaders are supposed to lead, not ignore or be blind to the most important facts.

          “Give him a chance”? “We can’t do any worse”? Do you hear the desperately low standards you offer for Trump?

          You have so little real leadership to look to, you have no idea what you’re missing, bro. Think how Martin King would respond; that might help your vision for leadership.

  • Aug 2, 2016 Newsbud Report with Peter B Collins- Hillary’s Hawks Want Escalation in Syria

    Clinton’s top pick for Pentagon, Michele Flouornoy, calls for US escalation in Syria. Gareth Porter comments on the report from Flournoy’s Center for New American Security, calling for US escalation in Syria, and convention speeches by Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton.


  • Here is great article this morning I was reading and it fits with yours Mr. Herman. August 02, 2016 If Voting Made Any Difference, They Wouldn’t Let Us Do It By John W. Whitehead

    “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”—Joseph Stalin, dictator of the Soviet Union


    • Carl_Herman

      Thanks, Lincoln. The author points to responsible and educated actions, and perhaps will include the call for lawful arrests as he progresses in consideration (he omitted that fundamental legal tool to stop obvious crimes in action).
