Broken Communication in America – The Sound of My Voice – Father / Son / Holy Ghost – Limbaugh / Osteen / Maddow
This began the other night when my usual source of “Progressive” information MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was presenting a propaganda show that night to tell of airline shootings of the last three or more decades and telling us directly or indirectly (subliminally) that America should not go to war with Russia over Malaysian Flight MH17 shot down over the Ukraine / Russian border by Russian terrorists.
Not satisfied with my own personal questions about this tragic act of Russian State Terrorism, I resorted to what I did in the dark days of George W Bush and sought foreign English Speaking news sites in the UK, Singapore and Australia to try and get a handle on the truth – something not available in America on this specific incident.
I realized that Rachel was doing a favor for the liberal/progressive party in general and maybe even specifically directly for the White House. That Professor Barry was not going to get off his ass and break a sweat over this one – he only will break a sweat doing hoops btw. But that is his style. George W. Bush’s style was similar as he sat in his tub and painted his toes etc.
I had to stand back and reflect on why I had sought Maddow as a news source and realized that I was seeking a comfort zone source and she had inherited that main source title at MSNBC after they hounded Olbermann into obscurity and back to the sports locker room gig – a job he was not best, but better suited for as far as the establishment was concerned.
But Olbermann was a shouter, a preacher and the sound of his voice gave comfort and his words too in most cases. Olbermann was a bit of a diva and they can easily be gotten rid of etc. – don’t you know.
But was it the sound of Olbermann’s voice that I trusted and maybe not all his words? That by default, Maddow’s voice had now become to me the surrogate Olbermann voice I suppose, (the ghost of Olbernmann past?) and or the surrogate voice of comfort available on the cable airwaves for me at least and my POV. And of course, it is a limited elite audience in America that can afford private cable news and or propaganda. I am certainly not your everyday hoi polloi. Yeah right.
I also in the case of comforting voices harkened back to something said by the Catholic theologian Bill Lindsey over at the Bilgrimage blog somewhere about how his assessment of listening to Rush Limbaugh on long car trips in the South put him to mind to analyze why a babbling tub of lard like Limbaugh had such a wide and hardcore group of listeners. The answer Bill had was that people fell in love with Rush’s voice and no matter what he says, no matter how vain, vulgar or stupid, it is the sound of the voice people are listening to and not the string of words that Rush outputs by the ton on a daily radio message day.
The trick to the magic of communicating at least in America was to trust the snake oil salesman or saleswoman and then the snake oil tastes like sugar candy from that point on in time.
And then there is Joel Osteen with his $100,000 perfect plastic teeth smile doing a nihilistic circle jerk of "success" with his Texas congregation – Christian??? - of reaffirming to his middle-class audience in an indirect oblique manner, that it is okay to cheat on your income taxes so long as you tithe to him - Joel - kinda sorta religion?
Of course Joel is not political that I know of, but the Catholic U.S. Supreme Court has okay-ed anonymity in political PACs (Citizens United) these days even if tax exempt preachers, Salt Lake City temples or Russian dictators want to fund any looney these days in the Tea Party and its “I don’t give a shit about my neighbor” Ayn Rand pagan libertarian godless philosophy.
I hear he has something like a hundred million mortgage on the former professional basketball arena he calls a mega-church down there in sub-minimum wage Texas. When the founding fathers gave tax exemption to churches, meeting houses and synagogues and such, those congregations were in wooden buildings and memberships numbered in the hundreds each. How times have changed.
Funny thing. I heard a story about how the safe in his church got robbed one weekend recently in the News. The thieves got away with over half a million dollars which was supposed to be the weekly take for his local god business. So people start to think – wow – that times 52 weeks is like twenty six million a year.
Wow! That is success. Right?
Well being an old war horse in the mortgage business among other things over the years. The thing is this. Twenty-six million income on a 100 million mortgage represents four times income or so. That is the base bottom line for allowing any mortgage or it used to be until politics and the whoring banks along with politicians ruined the mortgage business in this country. Four times income. Joel is barely getting by - treading water. Not much of a success in terms of old mortgage business standards. But those are old standards.
Who am I to question the success that the lord has pissed out onto Joel Osteen standing on his humble solid gold preacher pedestal? lol
But many, many, many may never hear the word Jesus out of his mouth during his hour long success story homilies preaching thing – or understand the words. But he has one hell of a comforting voice. Amen?

The Supreme Court on Tuesday overturned a federal appeals court’s decision to stay an Arizona execution, one that had been halted due to concerns regarding the secrecy surrounding the lethal injection process.
"It took Joseph Wood two hours to die, and he gasped and struggled to breathe for about an hour and 40 minutes. We will renew our efforts to get information about the manufacturer of drugs as well as how Arizona came up with the experimental formula of drugs it used today," attorney Dale Baich said in a statement.
He added: "Arizona appears to have joined several other states who have been responsible for an entirely preventable horror -- a bungled execution."
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer had directed the Department of Corrections to review the process, saying she is concerned by the length of time it took to carry out the lethal injection.

“Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a ‘Ted Cruz fundraiser.’ Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends….,” wrote Cruz.
In the episode, two vampires plot to enter the “Ted Cruz fundraiser,” being held at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, to track down one of their enemies. As the vampires are dressing up in stereotypical Texas Republican attire, the female vampire exclaims, “Oh my God, I’m a Republicunt.”
Eric and Pam tracked down Sarah’s Hep-V infected sister (Amber Newlin) who directed them to a fundraiser (for) Ted Cruz (I googled him Australians, he’s real) at the George W. Bush presidential library. “Security will be tight and they only invite assholes,” Amber Newlin says, just in case you had any misconception about the political leanings of this show. “You don’t know us, sweetheart. We can be assholes,” says Eric with a smile. Oof.
Now that Eric has developed Stage 2 symptoms (yep, it looks an awful lot like Stage 1) they need to find Sarah Newlin fast. I’m not going to acknowledge that Eric is dying, because I don’t want it to happen. Are we clear? Alright then.
Pam and Eric dress up as “Republicunts” and scan the room for the Newlins. “These bitches all look the same,” Pam drawls. Meanwhile Sarah and her mum (the mum from ) are in the bathroom wondering if a well-timed call to Laura Bush could save Sarah from her Japanese assassin-laden fate. “I’m not a monster, I’m a Buddhist!” Sarah cries, as her mother looks disgustedly at her newly brunette hair.
Eric barely has time to glamour anyone before the Yakuza storm in and start shooting Republicans in cowboy hats! They shoot Sarah’s dad point blank in the head! They spray Sarah’s mum with bullets and then for good measure, shoot her even more! GOD I LOVE HBO!

22 Americans Missing from MH-17 – Join others on MH-370 Manifest???
Like why do major services like Reuters and FOX Noise say that 23 Americans were killed on Flight MH-17 - where did they go?
One is Bi- a bi-citizen I presume. Not enough time for our Greys working out of Area 51 to save the Half Dutchy American. A matter of timing. Tragic.
FOX NEWS yet to apologize on Reporting 23 Americans Dead on Malaysian Flight MH-17. So non-PC as usual.
International Business Times quoted Fox News and Fox News Made up ??? 23 Americans killed on Flight MH-17. Roger Ailes back off his medications?????
Twenty-three Bi-s showing 23 U.S.Passports were not on board MH-17. They are now in the company of the abductees on Malaysian Flight MH-370.
They were filming a future 2618 C.E. Twilight Zone episode for the crowd on Alpha Centauri and there could not be 23 Americans in the script on Flight MH-17.
The lost people of MH-370 and 22 from MH-17 will star in another future alien movie on the life and times of Secretary John Kerry entitled – “Politically Correct First Last and Always – Truth be Damned!”.
Rupert Murdoch wants to buy Time Warner and he has no clue, he or his organization about COMMUNICATION???? The modern Wall Street Bankers Business Model of Success in a Dumbed Down America leading the way to a future Dumbed Down Global Culture????? A truly DUH! moment. Whatever.
A reliable anonymous source has stated that the Reptillians (space aliens), in treaty with the old Soviet Union and now under personal contract to you know who, was training Russian Ukrainians how to shoot missiles the other day. [BTW the Reptillians like to get off on the sight of Vladimir Putin's naked pecs (wink, nod). But you didn't hear that from me.]
Now that only half an A-merican is dead on MH-17, I really do not give a damn about this tragedy that happened outside safe white gated main street America. Amen, Christian A-merica.

As Many as 100 AIDS Experts on Way to Conference in Melbourne Shot Down by Russian Missiles / Malaysian Air Flight MH-17 - War Crimes Pile Up
In keeping with Russia’s main cultural thrust to ignore modern science in stemming the present AIDS epidemic in that country, approximately 100 AIDS experts are feared dead in this act of terrorism in Ukraine by Pro-Russian Proxy fighters for Putin’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
Methinks there may be method to Putin's madness.
Ignorance is a friend to all tyrants.
About 100 of the 298 people killed in the Malaysia Airlines crash were heading to Melbourne for a major AIDS conference, conference attendees have been told.
Delegates at a pre-conference in Sydney were told on Friday morning that about 100 medical researchers, health workers and activists were on the plane that went down near the Russia-Ukraine border, including former International AIDS Society president Joep Lange…
President-elect of the International AIDS Society, Chris Beyrer, expressed "sincere sadness" at the news that "colleagues and friends" were on board the flight on the way to the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne.
"The IAS is hearing unconfirmed reports that some of our friends and colleagues were on board the flight and if that is the case this is a truly sad day."
"The IAS has also heard reports that among the passengers was a former IAS president Joep Lange and if that is the case then the HIV/AIDS movement has truly lost a giant."
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said she understood a number of the victims were heading to the AIDS conference, but she had no further details.
Greens Senator Christine Milne expressed her shock at such a loss to the HIV-AIDS community.
