Milwaukee Sheriff calls #BlackLivesMatter Terrorists

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said on Twitter Tuesday that Before long, “Black Lies Matter will join forces with ISIS to b(r)ing down our legal constituted republic. You heard it first here.” It was an open comparison with a foreign terrorist group. Speaking this morning on a rightwing radio show in Chicago Clarke, now the darling o the rightwing media also linked ISIS with Iran, although the two are enemies. Iran currently is a was with ISIs.

He spoke on AM560 in Chicago, known for it attacks Clarke’s conspiracy paranoia would just be the confused ramblings of a fool if his NRA backed elected official did not have the power of life and death over people. This from Salon earlier this year:

“Of course, deflection is an effective tactic. A real organization doing a good deal of terrorizing is Clarke’s own Milwaukee police department, which according to Salon has been sued for dozens of illegal strip searches and has seen multiple officer-involved killings of unarmed black citizens during Clarke’s tenure, including Dontre Hamilton in 2014 and Derek Williams in 2011. What do black citizens of Milwaukee have to fear from terrorists overseas when the threat of death hangs over them from their own police everyday?”

Cark’s framing of #BLM as a terror organization, claiming also that ISIS is infiltrating SEIU and other labor organizations brings up disturbing questions about the safety and civil rights of civilians in Milwaukee County. Will or are his officers harassing or targeting anyone displaying #BlackLivesMatter signs? Even more, Clarke believes and said this morning that America can and should arrest its way out of the current social and economic turmoil plaguing the inner cities and poor.

Yet Clarke is silent on economic development, the banks and Wall Street in creating the foreclosure crisis which has crippled Black, minority and poor communities, and has called for open armed rebellion against any reasonable gun legislation. Most guns used in crimes in Milwaukee, like neighboring Chicago come from guns bought legally which are then given r sold to criminals; so-called straw purchases. Badger Guns in Milwaukee was found liable this month in a straw purchased linked to the shooting of two police officers. Ironically, Clarke’s own department could see a financial windfall from lawsuit against Badger and other gun outlets accused of straw purchases.

Meanwhile, the voters must realize that the true threat of terror faced n Milwaukee County comes from ulra-authoritarians, media hounds and protectors of the culture of greed, racism and corruption that have driven inner cities and the poor into corners of desperation in a society which then blames the symptoms but ignores the disease.

Tax Revolt!

Last night on his radio program, former republican representative Joe Walsh announced that he was going to stop paying income tax, and encouraged others to also stop paying income tax to the Federal government and IRS. He repeated the call again and again through the show, calling for rebel cities, in which “patriots” withheld taxes and openly defied gun laws

Revolution and Beer has heard anonymously from at least one listener to Walsh who says she will also refuse to pay her taxes, and will join Walsh in publically revolting against the US tax code. Revolution and Beer does not advocate Walsh’s refusal to pay taxes, but we applaud the bravery and sacrifice of Walsh and any of his listeners now defying the law.

On Saturday we have set aside time on our program for Mr. Walsh and any of his fellow revolutionaries. We have always considered Walsh a man of his word, and that he would not simply say he was going to revolt while encouraging others simply to leave them holding the bag. On Saturday we will ask for confirmation from Mr. Walsh that he has indeed stopped paying taxes.

Walsh would seem to scoff at the risk yesterday on his program. According to one legal site:

Tax evaders often face large criminal penalties, including fines and imprisonment, as well as civil penalties. Take for example the case of the public accountant in Michigan sentences to five months in prison and five months of house arrest for failing to file tax returns for four, yes, four years. He also had to pay $140 thousand dollars worth of back taxes and $50 thousand in penalties and interest.
Filing taxes isn’t voluntary, despite what tax evaders argue. If you make over a certain amount each year you are required to pay a tax on that income. In fact, this requirement is clearly set forth in section 1 of the Internal Revenue Code, which imposes a tax on the taxable income of individuals, estates and trusts.

It would appear that Walsh has a strategy for avoiding those penalties. It would be unthinkable that he would reserve that privilege for himself. As a courtesy therefore, anyone wishing more information on how Walsh will avoid penalties in his tax revolt, and how he will also help fellow revolutionaries, contact:

The facts on minimum wage and the Economic rapists of the Illinois Policy Institute

. A new rant from the FILTHY PUNDIT(He ought to have his mouth washed out with soap) Politics, way over the %$#@ing top!………………..Too harsh? Think about the death grip on our culture, the way workers, families and communities have been literally economically raped by perversely powerful, and obsessively greedy interests of extremist capitalism. I have been warned that calling out the powerful too honestly and too vociferously would get me branded as a pariah and someone who didn’t know how to “play the game.” I refuse to be a part of a media that allows the people to be tricked by groups like the Illinois Policy Institute, a nebulous group whose funding tentacles reach to the Koch brothers, according to a new report by Progress Illinois. Their agenda: to roll back civil liberties by seeming to support civil liberties. The proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing, the IPI made some statements on a local morning rightwing show about minimum wage. The IPI prefers eliminating the minimum wage in favor of a market based wage. In other wards, they favor predatory wages, as in the case of Walmart in which that national cancer destroyed the generations old job base in favor of low wage jobs and the resulting addiction to cheap Chinese and third-world made goods. The IPI says the raise in minimum wage would only benefit 5% of the workforce, but neglect to add that that represents about 11 million people, given, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics national workforce Figure, adjusted from 2005 numbers of about 160 million workers. 11 million heads of households! Remember in the 1990s economists were telling us to prepare for the service economy? Well fuck me with a dictionary! It’s here! As they told us that their crony capitalist pals were moving all the manufacturing jobs overseas, Romney’s Bain capital was carving up profitable companies and the banks were plotting ways to fuck millions of homeowners in a housing scheme. But here’s the real benefit, by the numbers, of raising the minimum wage.  Even at a paltry $10.10 an hour, the net gain to the  economy over the current in tax revenues alone would be around $20 billion, and would add around %30 billion additional in consumer spending, which I’m guess would spur a few jobs. It’s simple, multiple the wage amount by 40 hours average, time 4 weeks in a month, 12 months in a year…hardly rocker science. The raising of the minimum wage has always led to an upturn in the economy on the consumer side, but IPI represents predatory corporations and business interests who hope you remain clueless. I’m guessing that those who dismiss me as liberal can’t work  a calculator or really love sucking dick. I can’t help you. There’s no cure for stupid.

Not a Riot, but a Rebellion! Are you $%#@ing kidding me? A new rant from the FILTHY PUNDIT(He ought to have his mouth washed out with soap) Politics, way over the %$#@ing top!………………..This is how the headline should read: “Overnight, Police again refused to engage community leaders, Employ war tactics.” Every black person I talked to yesterday was pissed off about the events in Ferguson Missouri in the aftermath of the shooting death of unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown. CNN reporter Ryan Reilly reported being harassed and bullied by police last night. Christ, the cops are dressed like fucking occupation forces in combat boots, camouflage fatigues and fuck MACHINE GUNS. In FUCKING AMERICA! There was unrest again overnight and strangely it is becoming more difficult to defend any action or any reasonable need for the continued sheltering of the officer accused of shooting Brown. In a piece the day after the shooting I criticized the police and city for failing to invite protest and community leaders to a conversation which would have immediately diffused the tension and emotion. They didn’t so much as send out a city garbage man even to speak with the community. Instead the police immediately drew battle lines against American citizens, and sought to muddy the waters with disinformation paraded as fact in the face of substantially conflicting witness statements, the location of the body and execution style shots to the head and chest that ended Brown’s life. The officer had randomly and ostensibly stopped Brown for jaywalking. Fucking jaywalking! After the shooting, officials said that the officer was treated at a hospital for injuries, a common union trick. Through rightwing media filters, spin and lies by now the cop is blind, missing an eyebrow and as disfigured as the lady who had her face chewed off by that chimp. But if, in fact, the officer was actually assaulted, why wasn’t Brown’s companion, Dorian Johnson, who recalled the officer pulling up in an SUV and shouting “Get the fuck out of the road,” arrested? There isn’t even a warrant issued. He recalled, corroborated by independent witnesses, that the officer reverse the vehicle and grabbed Brown by the neck then shot him once before Brown broke away and urged his friend to run. The unarmed Brown was then shot dead in the middle of the street. And so when righteously angry people turned out enmasse instead of answers or respect they got a giant “Fuck you” from authorities. Images evoke Mississippi and Alabama during the 1960s. So forgive me if I don’t write pieces to calm people down or plead for Blacks to control themselves. Hard to take the high road when you are being fucked on the low road. We have become a nation under occupation by a pseudo military police no longer charged with serving and protecting the public but controlling the public. With the suck-dick entertainment culture of this society, that only becomes apparent when the state runs over some kid and emotion and anger boils over. That means nobody was paying attention before that kid got run over. A hand full were bitching without action, a hand full were acting without engaging the community and the rest were watching some fucking reality TV show. The black community already feels the occupation and control. The rest of us just think the state wants to keep us all safe from terrorists, you gullible fucks. Time for everybody to wake the fuck up and realize when this shit breaks it will break hard. Blacks, immigrants and minorities know t heir civil rights are a joke. Blacks knew when they were slaves. White fold remain clueless. You could work to fix this before it breaks, by, say making sure this is a free society, reigning in the police and state, demilitarizing the society and realizing that white people essentially live on a desert island of privilege, but the tide is rising. You are either with the tide or drowned by it. The choice is yours.

Shut Up! Revolution and Beer Reactionary of the Week

The strategy of the Democrat party is that people will become dependent upon government so they will continue to vote for Dems. So says the deposed Representative Joe Walsh, a man who has been or done nothing but fail at everything he’s done. He’s never run a business, created anything, but never mind that as he accuses Barack Obama, who managed to get elected twice, of the same thing. He has crafted a gig as a skilled liar and propagandist, and is sly enough to deflect to the dullest among us that he is not actually a bigot and a racist.

Dependent on government. Hmm. But this is the tripe, along with tangential and veiled racism the Right has become afflicted with. On yesterday’s show Ole Joe, who still lies about busloads of illegal immigrants coming down from out of state to vote for Tammy Duckworth(Got proof, Joe. It’s a felony to rig elections. It is also a crime to conceal evidence of a crime, Joe). She’s the veteran the chicken hawk Right, like Joe, who never served a day in his life, panders to, but then belittles and berates. Despite losing half her body in combat, Walsh, who has only seen combat in his own pants demeaned and derided her sacrifice.

Then there was this, one of his unending hypocrisies that his sycophant audience, all as embarrassingly ridiculous, self-amused and ill-informed as Walsh, never seem to get. Walsh slobbered over a story purported to show Dems in California were in an open conspiracy to trick people into voting Democrat by pre-checking the “D” box on voter registration cards. Joe, who doesn’t believe there is any global climate crisis fully regurgitated an obviously false story by an “unnamed California Republican couple” showing the only pre-marked card. He then went on to say that it was obviously about illegal aliens voting and getting free healthcare. However, regarding a Sun Times story about a Northwest side man, 54 year old William O’Connell, a conceal carry holder who pulled a gun over a rent dispute Walsh used the Allegedly 9 times. He never once used the word in regards to the unnamed republican couple nor questioned why only one card, sent out by the Secretary of State’s office and not the Dems turned up. And if you want to argue that California SoS Debra Bowen is a Dem, that just bolsters my argument for the dissolution of both parties in favor of a vibrant multi-party system. So shut up!

“(the) Sun Times puts this one incident on the front page,” Walsh fumed, “as if 16 people died!” Although 16 or 60 wouldn’t matter to this reprobate who openly politicized the deaths of children at Sandy Hook and called for more guns and less gun control. see here is the rub, guns aren’t about your safety, it is about the unprecedented profits to the gun industry who, through Walsh’s manipulation, keeps you afraid of shadows in order to buy more guns. It is about a society and people isolated from those around them because of guns and fear that makes you easy pickings for corporate propaganda, which Walsh proliferates.

Walsh is never at a loss for faux outrage, invoking fear and meanness about the poor, immigrants, Muslims to his white audience of bigots, 17th century mentalists, and critically misguided and misinformed poor and middleclass and predominantly suburban audience, while the corporations he fellates robs them blind. Never once has be discussed the corporate coup crafted under TPP to steal America’s sovereignty and loot our treasury, because he’s part of the “look over here at the shiny keys” crowd. He’s positively orgasmic over cutting a few billion in food stamps to the poor but never once, never once, mentions the conservative estimate of $476.4 billion, state, local and federal given to corporations annually. he’ll condemn your kid’s teacher’s pension before acknowledging the corporate welfare whores who are the true robber barons. His listeners pretend their patriotism. Real patriots don’t advocate for smaller government that will be replaced by bigger corporations!

Finally, the great patriot and tough guy behind the microphone called Israel, which is arguably an ally, a “sacred” ally, saying that Palestinians were to blame for the conditions they live under. “The territories aren’t disputed,” he said, “they’re Israel, and Jerusalem is the capital of Israel!”

This was after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, an elected US official was rhetorically sodomized into begging forgiveness to billionaire election manipulator Sheldon Adelson after remarking how’d he’d flown over the “…occupied territories…”

Where is your fraudulent patriotism now, Walsh and Tea Partiers? Not a word as representatives of a foreign nation force an American elected official to grovel, albeit because he’s a whore for the money.

Walsh supports crimes against humanity, which brands him in my book a war criminal. He supports elected officials being controlled and subservient to a foreign power, making him a traitor. And he perverts religion by supporting this twisted anti-Jewish end-times death cult, which, in my view makes him a heretic and anti-Christian-and certainly anti-Semitic. Also, after dodging multiple challenges for a debate on our radio, social media and TV show, Walsh is kind of a Dick. He won’t because he fails on truth and real American and Christian values. What’s it gonna be Joe? Man enough to come on our show? I’ll buy the beer.

The lines are open on my show, daily from 9-11am on AM1680, que4.org, with the most dangerous voice on the Left. And I take calls at 773-217-8344. Righties, this is the sound of the Left fighting back!
