Well I don’t know about you but…

…I’m freaking exhausted.

I’ve written and re-written this entry about five times now.  The whole post was going to be discussing the current state of the right and the left, the hypocrisy on both sides by the accused and those who support them as well as delving deep into this whole insane sexual predator/assaulter tornado of shit we find ourselves in.

However, things are moving so freaking fast and crazy it’s frankly nearly impossible to keep up.

And then you check facebook…that’s a terrible idea.  Because everyone is mad about everything ever in the world, about things they should be angry about, things they shouldn’t be angry about and quite frankly just looking for new things to be angry about.

I am slowly putting a long series together and will wait until this whole thing calms down a bit to post it.  I’m doing this for a number of reasons, A) because there’s so much going on I want to wait for the fallout to see where we all stand.  For example, the whole Roy Moore shit show and to see how many more women come out from the shadows to talk about Al Franken.

B) Maybe this can be a place for people to come and just chill as we get into the holidays.  There are so many voices shouting to the sky and into the abyss of the internet that it’s just way too much sometimes and I think we could all use a little break.

So until after the new year, this will be a place where there are no politics, social commentary or anything like that. Though podcast and YouTube will not be included in that ban.

In other words…

…Fuck it, here’s a story about a Tree.

Conversations with nature: The Pink Tree

As I strolled down the lane, sunlight dappling through the clouds I was struck by the beauty of the tree.  I stopped short, breathed deep and just stared in awe at nature’s exquisite palette.

The tree stood silent, noble and proud.  I closed my eyes, reaching out with my mind for contact, my thoughts forming words.

To my surprise, the tree responded.

Hey Pink Tree. Watcha thinkin’ about? I asked.

Nothin’ just Pink Tree stuff. It whispered in my mind.

Cool bruh.

What’d you just say to me?!

Um…cool…bruh?

I ain’t your bruh!

Whoa Pink Tree chill!

Don’t tell me to chill you little shit!

Damn Pink Tree what’s your problem?

I don’t have to explain myself to you! Fuck off human!

Whatever Pink Tree…just…whatever.

And thus ends our first installment in the conversations with nature series. More next week.

As for the podcast, nothing new up this week though Angie and I will be recording a number of them this weekend. However you can still listen to the Illuminati podcast and of course watch the video on YouTube.

Though there is a new video up on youtube today about the RFK assassination and MK Ultra. We recorded it this past summer and it has been available on podbean and iTunes for months but never got around to posting it on youtube until now.

Okay, back next week.

Hang in there everybody.

Okay let’s take a breath…

Hey All,

So I think we can all agree it’s been a hell of a week.  I’m not going to get into what the President said or who’s right or who’s wrong here.

However, I do think a general metric in how you live your day to day life can be summed up as followed:

If the former head of the KKK thanks you for something you’ve said, you’ve said something horrible.  Unless you happen to be the current head of the KKK, in which case…well done ya ignorant, racist bastard.

Angie and I are actually going to be preempting our usual podcast this next Friday and will be airing an “emergency episode” of The Perilous Podcast this Wednesday in which we cover the current shit tsunami and dig deep into the conspiracy behind the alt-right, the far left and what really happened in Charlottesville and why you should actually be way more scared than you already are.

However, in the meantime how’s about a nice way to start your weekend.

Over on The Perilous Podcast site I sit down with Bryant Dillon, co-founder of Fanbase press and fellow writer.  We talk about how comic book super heroes are becoming the new pantheon of Gods and it’s far more light hearted and fun than what’s going on now.

On The Perilous Podcast YouTube channel we have the video broadcast of our Black Dahlia podcast from last week, plus other past episodes in video form.  So you may want to give that a watch.

As for me I’m getting ready to do a bit of traveling.  I’ll be in Denver (I think) in late September for a couple days, followed by a trip to Phoenix in late October and then a jaunt down to Palm Springs in early November, so yay me and my hotel points program.

I’m pretty excited about my novella coming out in January and my new novel set for release in spring of 2018 as well as some other stuff in the works I just can’t talk about right now…but it’s all good.

Look everyone, let’s try to stay calm, maybe even distract ourselves a bit (ain’t nothin’ wrong with that) and enjoy our weekend.

I have a lovely weekend planned as I recoup from my latest Jiu Jitsu injury, including a Tchaikovsky concert this evening, a bit of work tomorrow recording some podcasts followed by a night in and then I’m hoping some video games Sunday followed by a movie before going back to training on Monday.

Plus I scored some great plums at Costco this week so that’s good.

Anyhoo, why not follow the links below for all of your distraction needs.  Pick up a copy of my pulp novel The Geek. or maybe just unplug from everything and go for a nice long hike.

But seriously, buy my book first, I don’t see why you wouldn’t.  Links for that are below.  However if you’re in the Los Angeles area or live in Los Angeles and like supporting independent bookstores why not head into Los Feliz and go to Skylight Books to pick up The Geek in paperback.

Skylight is awesome.  They support and promote local and indie authors and it’s a great place to pick up a book and browse.  I love their counterculture stuff and they have a great selection of quirky fiction.

Plus it’s right down the street from Fred 62.  A great diner with awesome milkshakes, so you can stop by there before or after your trip.

No I am not the owner of Fred 62…but I eat there frequently.

Here’s a link to skylight with their address and hours:

And one for Fred 62, because it’s tasty:

Have a great weekend everybody.

Best,

Jonathan

I was fooled and you were fooled. You know that makes us all fools right?

Hey all thanks for stopping by the mother ship.

So if any of you have been paying attention at all this week you know that there have been two big stories…three if you count a smaller but almost more important one.

The two big stories this week have been the continued cabinet appointments of President Elect Trump and of course that every intelligence agency has come forward to express their sincere conviction that the Russian’s definitely hacked our election.

While the FBI and other agencies have stated that they do not feel comfortable ascribing motive as to why these hacks occurred, the CIA does feel comfortable.

However, while most agencies aren’t comfortable talking about motive, they all agree 100 percent that the Russians definitely hacked not only the DNC but the RNC as well.

The RNC has denied they were hacked, but I personally don’t believe it.

Now, we know the DNC was hacked because that information was in fact released.  Yet the RNC info was not leaked.

There’s a reason for that of course.  If Russia wanted to influence the election and help their man, in this case Donald Trump get elected, why would they release sensitive and possibly detrimental information about the Republicans to the public?

They wouldn’t.

Using wiki-leaks, Vladimir Putin pulled off a master stroke of 21st century espionage.

He had his dupes in place and really just did an incredible job…well his intelligence apparatus did.  But of course that apparatus is minutely overseen by Putin himself.

His two major dupes were Julian Assange and of course President Elect Donald J. Trump.

He used Julian’s hatred of not only government, but specifically of Hillary Clinton, knowing that wiki-leaks and Julian Assange would jump at the chance to go to war with a woman he despised.

A woman who wants to prosecute Julian Assange for acts of espionage against the United States.  A woman, who if you’re not too naïve, helped orchestrate the rape case against Julian Assange that has kept him locked up in the Ecuadorian Embassy for years.

Honestly I’d probably be pretty pissed off too, but Julian is a really smart guy, he should have realized he was being used.  So he either did and didn’t care, he was either more than a dupe or he simply got played by a man who used to run one of the most notorious spy agencies on the planet.

Personally I think Julian was well aware of what was going on but I don’t have proof of course, so am putting him in the dupe category.

This then brings us to the true dupe, and there is no doubt in my mind that this is what President Elect Trump is.

Some will argue that Trump knowingly worked with Russia, that he in fact is somehow a Russian operative or agent provocateur.

This is not the case.  Spy masters like Putin love dupes.  If given the choice a dupe is far easier to handle than say an actual operative or perhaps a recruited citizen.

Dupes bring one incredible quality to a covert operation in that they have no idea they are actually involved.

Dupes are wonderful, easily manipulated, not too bright targets, and President Elect Trump fits that description to a T.

Putin knew that Trumps ego was his in and played to that perfectly.  There were also people in Trumps team who had serious ties to Russia and Putin specifically.  Chief among them being former campaign head Paul Manafort.

Putin did not and still does not need Donald Trump to know he’s being used.  He simply has to do what he’s done for decades and that is to manipulate the pieces on the board to attain check mate.

Trump thinks he’s the King, but he’s simply a pawn and not a very smart one at that.  He continues to be manipulated from within and has appointed – as Secretary of State – a man with such strong ties to Russia that he received the Order of Friendship award from Russia a few years ago.

Rex Tillerson, a man with no diplomatic experience and a long record of shady dealings as head of Exxon Mobile is now our chief diplomat.

Well I say that now.  He has truly only been nominated and must go through a hearing after inauguration, but the chance of him being denied the position is incredibly slim.

The Order of Friendship is given for many reasons.  One amongst them being major contributions in terms of economic and business joint ventures that help Russia.

Considering Russia is a petro-economy it makes sense that the head of Exxon would receive this award.  And while I don’t think the award is that special in and of itself (Steven Seagal got one too) it is telling that the main diplomat who Trump has selected is tied not only into Russia, but Russia’s petro-economic machinery.

There is no doubt in my mind that Trump is being manipulated and if I had to put my finger on the person who in the end is most likely Vladimir Putin’s true proxy it’s probably Steve Bannon.

Bannon, Breitbart and the alt-right movement in general have been singing Putin’s praises for a while.  They see him as the leader in a traditionalist movement that will bring a very, socially conservative world to the forefront.

The fact that Putin is far more about money, power and control and (in my opinion) is only using the alt-right to gain victory seems to be missed by Bannon and his ilk.  Or Bannon just doesn’t really care as long as he (Bannon) achieves his goal too.

But while I think Bannon is being used by Putin, Putin is also being used by Bannon.  Both thinking they are the more clever of the two.  However, I’d put my money on Putin.

Here is a great article with tons of solid and actual news links that goes into great detail about Bannon and Breitbart’s relationship with Putin:

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/11/18/1601406/-Everything-You-Need-to-Know-About-Steve-Bannon-Breitbart-Russia

I am always dubious about websites with either a left or right agenda, but in this case the Dailykos’s article is so well researched that I’m giving it a personal thumbs up.

It’s also a little terrifying.

All the Trump supporters in America can claim that this is some left wing conspiracy about Russia but let’s be honest here, intelligence agencies tend to be right leaning and conservative, they also for the most part try to and are neutral and really are simply trying to protect America.

I may disagree with a lot of their tactics but I do not question their motives.

Plus the only instance of an intelligence agency mucking up this election was the FBI’s James Comey and that was not something that helped the left.

And for all you Trump supporters, if the CIA came out and said Russia hacked the election to get Hillary Clinton elected President you’d be freaking the fuck out.

I for one am not shocked and I’d be just as upset if it was Hillary who’d been used for Russia’s ends too.

I believe as screwed up as the process is, American elections should not be the play toy of a corrupt Russian Oligarch like Putin.

This is going on pretty long so let me try and wrap things up by saying that in the end, this was never going to bother the Trump supporters.  But keep in mind that those who voted for Trump voted on the promise of change, voted on the promise of draining the swamp, voted on the promise of ending corruption.

Well kids, you got just the opposite.  Trump has appointed only insiders who have ties to everyone and everything you hate; wall street, big oil, open borders for business, tax cuts for the rich, and even George Soros.

That’s right, George Soros, the alt-right’s favorite demon is represented in the Trump cabinet.

Trump is a dupe.  He’s been used and like any true dupe he has no clue.

While he’s currently on his “Victory Tour” and tossing out hats like he’s at a NASCAR race the real operatives are whispering in his ear.  They’re telling him he doesn’t need an intelligence briefing every day.  They’re telling him to delegate the big decisions to Bannon.  They’re telling him that the people love him and will always love him and that Russia just wants to be an ally and a friend.

I should point out that I do consider Hillary Clinton to be a serious Hawk.  I also believe that if she had been elected we’d be at war with Russia within two years tops.  This would be a disaster for the world and a true, country wrecking disaster for Russia.

I do not want war with Russia and I believe Russia and specifically Putin does not want war with the United States.

But Putin does not want to live side by side singing Kumbaya M’lord.

Russia does not want to be America’s equal, they want to be America’s conqueror.  And if Putin can do that without firing a shot?

Check Mate.

Everyone who voted for Trump was fooled.

Everyone who thought Trump could never win was fooled.

Anyone who still thinks Trump is a brilliant business man with no compromised world view, well, you know what you are.

In Trumps own words from his interview regarding missing intelligence briefings….”I’m, like, really smart…”

Fuck me.

This week on the podcast the bro-host and I are again talking the far left and why they need to stop being self-entitled weenies.  We explore gender versus sex and why, no matter what they are still the same thing.  We play a game called no-noun or pro-noun in which you can hear my head explode: http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

And as we get near Christmas why not pick up a copy of my pulpy, violent, sex and murder filled novel The Geek.  Available at Amazon.com in paperback or ebook and every other site in ebook including iTunes, google books and more.  http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

If you live in the Los Angeles area and like supporting local writers and super cool independent book stores head on over to Skylight Books in Los Feliz and grab a paperback copy of The Geek there.

Okay thanks for stopping by everybody, more next week…probably…or it’ll just be a ridiculous list of things I want for Christmas.

Hard to say at this point.
