  1. Just to let Mr. Fish know that I really love and appreciate his illustrations. Not only are they beautiful, they are really meaningful as well. Mr. Fish, you are the best!

  2. Excellent!
    Now if we could only get Mr. Fish to do something along the lines of connecting the Ds with the Rs – I am sure he could come up with a boffo cartoon 😀

    1. Three parties are nearly as easy to corrupt as two. You can’t vote your way out of this. It’s silly at this point to still think you can.

      1. Hence Andrew Yang’s attempt to create a “Centrist” third party – firmly within the acceptable “Overton Window”, between the two sides of the Corporatist Monoparty…

        There is however an attempt by Nick Branna and others, to create an anti-corporate “Movement for a People’s Party”, or MPP… I’d like to think that were that to be successful, that some of the Corporatist control mechanisms could be shaken loose, and the corrupt monopolistic logjam broken up…

        But that’s probably a bit naive…as your comment would suggest… But let’s be clear – non voters and independents are a majority in this country. If we had election systems that were less prone to being “rigged” – perhaps we could retake some control from this fascistic Fourth Reich system.

  3. I posted this on “these ‘Times’ they are a-changin” this mourning:

    Since the current dual-party system has imploded into a virtual ‘fixed’ Empire, we should shift to a new two-party system — with the current right of center, corporate Democratic Party, being replaced by a new and true, left of center Social Democratic Party — which raises the question of what to do with the BOP [Bad Old Party] Republican Party?

    As all our founders understood from their ‘deep reading’ of Roman history, “The disease of Republics is Empire”, so the current non-functional Empire-diseased Party should be removed — as should be done with any cancer, and the political system should be cured into a truly modern and healthy Social Democratic Party, as should have been done 78 years ago, in 1944, near the certain end of the Second World War of Empires, when FDR’s brilliant VP, socially responsible Democrat, Henry Wallace, was the first-round 60%+ winner at the Democratic Party Convention.

    While history was retarded for those past 78 years, it doesn’t mean that ‘we the American people’ should have to wait another 78 years, until the year 2100 — to get out from under the oppression and lies of living under a virtual Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Racist Propagandist Criminal Ecocidal and ‘War-Starting’ EMPIRE.

  4. Great work, Mr. Fish. Maybe in the future work in the drones and missiles that USA and EU just love.

    Nuclear facility targeted by Adolph ZioLensky? Maybe Mr. Fish can work in some glowing irradiated spermatozoa!

    RE: “Why is Europe Silent on Ukraine’s Attempts to Create a New Chernobyl?”

    Ukraine, on the eve of a decision by residents liberated from Kiev’s Nazi regime to hold a referendum on Zaporozhye Region becoming part of Russia, has turned to nuclear terrorism, trying to destroy nuclear power plants, intimidate civilians and force residents to leave the region. To this end, Kiev’s regime attacked the Zaporozhskaya NPP with UAV strikes on July 20. The day before, two other Ukrainian drones also struck a building near the Zaporozhskaya NPP, and then Ukrainian security forces used the UAV in a residential area of the NPP. The attacks by the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the Zaporozhskaya NPP injured 11 employees, four of whom are currently in serious condition. It is only by sheer luck that the attacks on the Zaporozhskaya NPP did not result in damage to the plant’s equipment and a man-made Armageddon.

    1. Ha! Anti-Jewish racists have a compulsion to include their racist hatred in every issue.

      1. There is nothing “anti-Jewish” or racist about opposition to Zionism. It was the majority position of World Jewry for nearly two millenia. Zionism is itself properly understood as a racist ideology, with a long history of collaboration with fascism and Nazis, that continues up to the present in Ukraine. The Neturei Karta are as Jewish as anyone – and they reject the ideological and political movement/philosophy of Zionism, wholeheartedly… ( NKusa.org ). So do many on the left and in Jewish Voice for Peace ( JVP.org ). So pointing out that the leader of the Post-CIA/Nazi Coup Government’s role in Nazi collaboration and warcrimes, or his being an ardent Zionist, is in no way anti-Jewish, nor racist. Arguably, just the opposite, in fact…

      2. Like the perversion of the Holocaust Industry, the thugs in the business of their Orwellian labelling and libeling those who see the hideous goings-on within Israel (sic) and Zionism and tribal Judaism are troglodyte thinkers, but unfortunately the press and media and billionaire Mafia are populated by theses racists in the Israel first cabal. Goyim or Jew, they are rabid against even Jewish studied historians. I’ve lost book deals because that industry Googles my name. Scheer Post has banned me under another name. There you have it…. Sicarios with bank ledgers.

      3. Good on ya’…you know that you’re over the target, when you’re taking flak… I could tell I liked you…

        Yes. Whether we’re talking about Miko Peled or Norman Finkelstein, or so many others (MondoWeiss) – we see how much tolerance there is for even the slightest deviations from the Orthodox Zionist narratives, even from Jews. JVP and NK are both routinely slandered.

        The same kind of pluralism is currently evident in Ukraine, for any who oppose that regime, too… If you haven’t seen them – check out the articles that I named in my other comment… If I had any editorial input here at Sheerpost – they’d all be included.

      4. Oh, no, I of course have read those articles, for sure. And studied all those influences upon which we have this racist and genocidier ZioLensky. So looking beyond the veils these sorts parade around with is verboten? Annie Leibowitz doing an Edward Bernays photo spread of Adolph Zelensky for Vogue that reality is not to be looked at in terms of Annie’s and Adolph’s backgrounds and religious upbringings and loyalties? Right!!!!!

        Look, how does a GIlad Atzmon arrive at his perspectives? Not to be touched with a pole the length of Larry Silversteins’s Building Seven’s height? And the realities here, with Walberg’s piece, “Renouncing Jewishness: Shlomo Sand And Gilad Atzmon”? Or, the fact that others have a perspective that is not in line with the apartheid regime, the cultural cleansing critics and cleansers, Israel?

        Try talking to people about this lecture: A number of Black people have come under attack from the Jewish community have been charged with anti-semitism.

        This is not a new situation. Pan-Afrikan activists and historians have consistently come under attack for challenging the legitimacy of the State of Israel and highlighting the role of Jews in the Trans-Atlantic Enslavement of Afrikan People.

        Baba Tony Martin was on such Professor, who would incur the full wrath of the Jewish lobby in America when he dared to add the book “The Secret Relationship Between Black and Jews” written by the research department of the Nation of Islam – to his History syllabus. Baba Martin documented the history of the attack in his book “The Jewish Onslaught” and the delivered many presentations on the subject.

        Then, other questioners of Jewish power and Israel: Michael Parenti, Illan Pappe, and James Petras? Look, I’ve got a few graduate degrees from different universities. I’ve taught English, journalism, remedial classes, literature and even did gigs as sustainability director at a college. I have also been a union organizer with SEIU in Seattle. Organized part-time faculty at Georgetown.

        Now, a smart fellow/gal here and there who happens to be Jewish, well that’s okay and part and parcel of achievement. But my union and lobbying groups in journalism, education, K12, and even in the urban planning and sustainability fields, well, I have had much more than a 1.7 percent Jewish demographic in leadership and critical policy making roles. Way above 30 percent .. . That can’t be discussed? Who gets into power? Oh, all that is okay until we look at Jewish power. We all look at diversity studies, look at white privilege, and even look at all the Catholics in the SCOTUS, and we spend all this time consuming white papers and books and policies and then meld with the zeitgeist and alas we should look at who is at the top, who are in the corridors of power, who are the so-called enlightened ones, the elites, the decision makers or decision molders.

        We are who we are, and we are what we learn, what we read, how we are brought up, how we commune with family, tribes, extended influences. We are what we believe or how we believe and what we believe. Alas, so much of the world we can parse when it comes to ACES, i.e. adverse childhood events, but can we look at the families of those who seem to be in Capitalism’s defining glory successful, leaders, movers and shakers and cutting edge? We look at Gates’ background and childhood and family and values, but do we really delve deep into Zuckerberg’s or Fink’s or Summer’s or Kagan’s or Nuland’s or Blinken’s, with an eye toward who they were then and how they because so rotten to the core, so misanthropic, so deadly?

        Does their Jewishness play into who and what they are?

        Shoot, that question can only be asked of a person from Mexico or a leader with Haitian roots or someone from Pakistan or India or . . . . We parse Tulsi Gabbard’s background and religious leanings, but do we do that with all those shining Jewish guys and gals in finance? With Goldman and Sachs?

        Why ZioLensky does and think as he does are important. Who his billionaire handlers are is important to pry back.

        Who controls the message and media?

        Also good questions.

    2. I think that, sadly, any links, references or mention – of a certain magazine, formerly an “Information Bulletin” – started with the help
      of Phil Agee, and devoted to Covert Action, is somehow banned or blacklisted here – whether by the choice of Robert Sheer, the moderator(s), or perhaps the WordPress platform itself (most likely, in my estimation). This is a shame. Evan Reif has written a very good three part exposé there, on the fascist/Nazi Roots, of Ukrainian Nationalism, from WWI to the present CIA/Nazi Coup Government there … The most recent installment is entitled “What the U.S. Government and The New York Times Have Quietly Agreed Not to Tell You About Ukraine”. That was preceded by, “How Monsters Who Beat Jews To Death in 1944 Became America’s Favorite “Freedom Fighters” in 1945—with a Little Help from their Friends at CIA” and “How Pre-WW II Ukrainian Fascists Pioneered Brutal Terror Techniques; Later Improved By CIA, Now Ironically Taught to Descendants”…

      All are quite worthy of reading – and should probably be featured here, already… But when I tried to link them to my comment -defending you from the spurious charge that what you said here makes you an ‘Anti-Jewish racist’ … Well every attempt just disappears into the ether… Anyone with a working search engine should use that, to find those articles, and read them…

  5. Today’s middle class liberals clearly believe that the worst off anyone can be, in this great capitalist country, is a minimum wage worker. This, with all due respect, shows a significant lack of knowledge about the country overall. Without broad knowledge of overall economic and social conditions, no progress is possible.

  6. My Comment to the Times this mourning:

    While, this Guest Essay by Lux Alptraum is excellently written, seminally ‘on topic’, and essential to exposing, focusing on, and effective — it is, IMHO, even more important for what it leaves out — which is universality of recognizing that “The Whole Game Is Rigged. It’s Time We Stop Playing by the Rules.”

    I’m very supportive and pleased with Ms. Alptraum’s ‘Issues’, however, we are living in a country (and world) with too many ‘Issues’ and no seminal ‘Cause’ of what we’re being played by — which is Empire.

    An expansive and truly explosive title for “these ‘Times’ they are a-changin” progressively could and should follow from the Editorial Board titled: “The Whole Scam Is Rigged. It’s Time We Stop Playing by the Empire’s Rules.”

  7. Why do we have political parties at all? Shouldn’t candidates run on their own ideas and credentials. In office they can caucus with any other representative to advance the policies they ran on.

    Then, WE vote to approve or reject those policies and decisions!
