Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's April Fools Joke, But He's Often Hilarious

This was how I felt earlier today.



Then I read this.

Lavrov Wins April Fools' Day With Amazing Russian Foreign Ministry Prank 

This message below was posted as a possible  answering service message at the Russian Foreign Ministry. I have read that Americans will not think this is funny. I think it's very hilarious and the best April Fools Prank of 2017.  The claims that Russia hacked the DNC and manipulated the election are crazy. So, the subject was funny already.

"You have reached the Russian Embassy. Your call is very important to us. To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponents, press 1. To use the services of Russian hackers, press 2. To request election interference, press 3 and wait until the next election campaign. Please note that all calls are recorded for quality improvement and training purposes."

This is the guy Sergey Lavrov, Russia's Foreign Minister who probably set up this prank, he's hilarious.



 

Yes there are a lot of pussies even now and pussy grabbers. 

I am a person who has been under surveillance by my own government when I have done nothing wrong and also hacked by them. I know very well who is likely to do the hacking is this country. Hell, they even followed me around during the Arctic Conference in 2015. It's quite true and was very creepy. That was after months of surveillance on my blog including from the office of J. Edgar Napolitano at UC California. I have no idea why, but some suspicions, none of it is a valid reason for these vile actions. Oh, and it was most likely leaking not hacking of the DNC emails.

Thank you for making me laugh because I am a person in the USA on disability with crappy health care because my government gave my illness a joke name and blocked the research for decades. I was homeless for two years and will now soon be homeless again due to the place I am at being incompetent and abusive, but I have really considered myself to still be homeless at that place. I dared to speak up once again in a country that has no Democracy. 

The non-profits in the US associated with the homeless are unregulated and allowed to do as they please to people, you know much like the NGOs that help the Pentagon, the CIA and the Clinton Foundation steal oil from other countries, pillaging, destroying, killing. 

Through a lottery, yes that is their procedure here because so many need housing and there is so little help I have received a Section 8 voucher. President Trump just cut the HUD budget so the situation will get even worse. That voucher is to help pay for housing but there is very little housing that fits their criteria available due to the US destroying the low income housing in the cities so the oligarchy could have the land. Then they stopped building housing for low income people due to the federal government cutting the funds to the states. After working my whole life like so many other Americans who become ill ( I was actually ill while working and had several episodes of crashing and then going back to work, no help at all or even real health care) this is our reward, to be traumatized and put in desperate situations so the oligarchy can take more money to stockpile from the citizens of the USA and other countries. The homeless die off younger, eventually they know they can kill most of us off with exposure to the weather, poor nutrition and inadequate health care. So thank you Russian Embassy for the laughs, they are needed.

Strange Goings On With Facebook and YouTube, Well Now Blogger

One of my posts was removed by Facebook. I have no idea what violated their policies, probably nothing. I assume there was targeting by one of the parties mentioned in it. This is about something that happened in 2015, their little message that they had removed it did not include the date, but that was when what I wrote about happened, but no idea when I posted it.


Today Facebook wanted to know if I posted the above comment, you know because it is so unlike what I would post. They marked it as spam. That means until I marked that it was not spam no one could see it. The only way I found out about this was due to my searches.

Never heard of retroactive censorship before. I searched for other posts around this time period and found this one which was before I realized that surveillance had been launched against me



Since this happened there have been some other odd things including this post being published, but it was not me. I unpublished it and it is now published again.

Update: Irwin Corey Has Passed Away. "IF WE DON'T CHANGE DIRECTION SOON, WE'LL END UP WHERE WE WERE GOING" Professor Irwin Corey

Update: Irwin Corey has died at the advanced age of 102 on Monday February 6th 2017. I was a huge fan since childhood. Most people don't know he was a good man who helped get medicine to Cuba due to our country's evil. He spent the last years of his life on the street panhandling for money to send to Cuba to help the children. People thought he was homeless, but no he just wanted to help and could care less what people thought. I posted this August 27th 2009 and have now reposted it in honor of his beautiful life and his example to us all to always do the right thing and speak up about wrongs even if people hate you for it.
I never knew him, but I love him. 
*********
When I first started hearing Sarah Palin's speeches one of the first thoughts that came to mind was, is Professor Irwin Corey writing her speeches? I said this to several people and none of them knew who he was. He is a comedian who has been playing a crazy professor since the 1940s billed as "The world's foremost authority". This character talks in word salad and seems confused much of the time. It is believed he pretty much invented improvisational comedy. He use to constantly be on the talk show circuit doing a word salad speech which would start with, "However". Sometimes a pretty girl would walk by and he would stop speaking, walk off stage and just follow her, eventually making it back to his podium. He usually wore black tails, sneakers and a string tie. His hair looks uncombed. He got his start in vaudeville. This year he celebrated his 95th birthday on July 29th in a very public gathering in New York where he has continued to perform and make public appearances.
I have always been a fan since I saw him on TV as a child. As an adult I saw a live performance where he could be himself without the constraint of censors and then realized how brilliant he is. I could not find very many videos of performances which were not full of expletives, which do not bother me, but I realize may offend others. He has some very strong opinions about politics. Here is a link to his performance at the age of 92 at the Lord Buckley Bash, he is very sharp for 92. I am not putting it on this post because of language, but I recommend it highly for those who can tolerate a bit of blue language.



Here he is on the Smothers Brothers in 1966.



Professor Irwin Corey was black listed during the McCarthy era because of his left political views. He has always been a political activist and has donated thousands of dollars to buy medication to send to the people of Cuba. I do not agree with everything he says, but it is clear he is motivated by altruistic motives and is very courageous. The beauty of Professor Irwin Corey is he has always said what he thinks whatever the consequences. In fact it seems the more they tried to blacklist him the more outspoken he was. I have to admire a man like that.
Professor Irwin Corey Accepted the National Book Award for Thomas Pynchon April 18, 1974 Pynchon was a recluse. This video begins with Corey reading from Pynchon's book, and listening to an audio recording of the speech.



Later New York writer and newspaper columnist Jim Knipfel wrote:

"One of Corey’s most notorious public appearances came on April 18, 1974, when he showed up at Alice Tully Hall to accept the National Book Award for Gravity’s Rainbow on behalf of Thomas Pynchon.

'Thomas Guinzberg [of the Viking Press] first suggested the idea,' he says, 'and Pynchon approved it.'

So, after being mis-introduced (as 'Robert Corey'), the little man with the wild hair and the rumpled suit walked to the podium and addressed some of the most esteemed figures in American publishing and literature:

Professor Irwin Corey: However…I accept this financial stipulation – ah – stipend in behalf of Richard Python for the great contribution which to quote from some of the missiles which he has contributed… Today we must all be aware that protocol takes precedence over procedure. However you say – WHAT THE – what does this mean… in relation to the tabulation whereby we must once again realize that the great fiction story is now being rehearsed before our very eyes, in the Nixon administration…indicating that only an American writer can receive…the award for fiction, unlike Solzinitski whose fiction does not hold water. Comrades – friends, we are gathered here not only to accept in behalf of one recluse – one who has found that the world in itself which seems to be a time not of the toad – to quote Studs TurKAL. And many people ask “Who are Studs TurKAL?” It’s not “Who are Studs TurKAL?” it’s “Who AM Studs TurKAL?” This in itself is an edifice of the great glory that has gone beyond, and the intuitive feeling of the American people, based on the assumption that the intelligence not only as Mencken once said, “He who underestimates the American pubic – public, will not go broke.” This is merely a small indication of this vast throng gathered here to once again behold and to perceive that which has gone behind and to that which might go forward into the future…we’ve got to hurdle these obstacles. This is the MAIN deterrent upon which we have gathered our strength and all the others who say, “What the hell did that get?” – WE DON’T KNOW. We’ve got to perforce with all the loving boy… And as Miller once said in one of his great novels – what did the … that language is only necessary when communication is endangered. And you sit there bewildered, and Pinter who went further said “It is not the lack of communication but fear of communication.” THAT’S WHAT THE GODDAMN THING IS that we fear – communication. Oh – fortunately the prize has only been given to authors – unlike the Academy Award which is given to a female and a male, indicating the derision of the human specie – God damn it! But we have no paranoia, and Mr. Pynchon has attained, and has created for himself serenity, and it is only the insanity that has kept him alive in his paranoia. We speak of the organ…of the orgasm…WHO THE HELL WROTE THIS? And the jury has determined to divide the prize between two writers – to Thomas Pynchon for his Gravity’s Rainbow. Now Gravity’s Rainbow is a token of this man’s genius…he told me so himself…that he could…in other words, have been more specific, but rather than to allude the mundane, he has come to the conclusion that brevity is the importance of our shallow existence. God damn. Ladies and Gentlemen. To the distinguished panel on the dais and to the other winners, for poetry and religion and science. The time will come when religion will outlive its usefulness. Marx, Groucho Marx, once said that religion is the opiate of the people. I say that when religion outlives its usefulness, then opium…will be human… All right…However, I want to thank Mr. Guinzburg, Tom Guinzburg of the Viking Press, who has made it possible for you people to be here this evening to enjoy the Friction Citation – the Fiction Citation. Gravity’s Rainbow – a small contribution to a certain degree, since there are over three and a half billion people in the world today. 218 million of them live in the United States which is a very, very small amount compared to those that are dying elsewhere…Well, I say that you will be on the road to new horizons, for we who live in a society where sex is a commodity and a politician can become a TV personality, it’s not easy to conform if you have any morality…I said that myself many years ago…But I do want to thank the bureau…I mean the committee, the organization for the $10,000 they’ve given out…tonight they made over $400,000 and I think that I have another appointment. I would like to stay here, but for the sake of brevity I must leave. I do want to thank you, I want to thank Studs TurKAL. I want to thank Mr. Knopf who just ran through the auditorium and I want to thank Breshnev, Kissinger – acting President of the Unites States – and also want to thank Truman Capote and thank you.

Corey’s speech was accentuated by a nude man who streaked across the stage as he spoke. The audience, needless to say, was dumbfounded by the entire spectacle."

I am sure now you can see why I would wonder if he was involved in Sarah Palin's speech writing, and my research tells me I was not the only one. It is clear by the posts being made on Sarah Palin's facebook page by her new ghost writer that her speech writer has changed. But, I came to the realization that not only could Sarah Palin not have word saladed some of the large words the professor uses, but he probably launches into a diatribe with string of explicative’s at the mention of her name. His politics are centered around caring about people, just the opposite of Governor Quitter. It would be like oil and water. I would so love to hear what the professor has to say on the subject of Sarah Palin.

Every Day I Disturb the Sound of Silence, but The Perpetrators of the Silence and Lies Hate Me For It

The 1964 Simon and Garfunkle song, Sound of Silence sung below by them in 1966 in a black and white video brings back lots of memories. That was over 50 years ago, I was 9 years old. I remember how popular it was.



David Draiman sings lead for a metal group called Disturbed, They have put out a new version of the song making it more relevant for the times we are in with his deeply emotional, nasally, bass voice. It mesmerized me. Apparently the first time Draiman listened to the recording he teared up himself.

My friend Terry posted this video and discussed how appropriate this song is for what is going on in our country now. It was appropriate back in the 1960s, but the sounds of silence were begun way before that decade.

The Sound of Silence

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools" said I
"You do not know, silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the signs said
"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence

This is the Conan version which is so much more beautiful and emotional than the official music video. Even though I already knew the song, the words in this version jumped out and punched me in the gut.

Hey Democrats, On That Illegal Immigrant Thing, Where in the Hell Have You Been?

Here is Bill Clinton saying things twenty years ago that did not have the Democrats outraged. I was outraged then.



Where the hell were you?

Here is Hillary Clinton saying things similar to Donald Trump about immigrants and a fence/wall. I was outraged when she said this.



Where the hell were you?

Under President Obama deportation of illegal immigrants went off the scales. I knew about it but Democrats were blind and silent on the subject.

 Where the hell were you?

President Obama was for fences and blocking illegal immigrants. He later said pretty things about immigrants, then did the opposite of what he promised them. He deported a huge number of immigrants.



Where the hell were you?

Obama, The Deporter-in Chief.



Where the hell were you?

This book was published in 2005 before President Obama during the George W. Bush presidency. Reading it about tore my heart out.



Where the hell were you?

SarahPac is Deep Sixed, I Had a Blog Waiting for an Appointment but Donald Trump Ruined it For Me, Thanks Trump

SarahPAC is being shut down. Or as I called, it the Palin-Grifto-O-Matic.

Does this mean she is done, put a fork in her? Are her wordsalading, grifting, quiting days over? Or does it mean she had to dump SarahPAC to get some Donald Trump appointment? It was really sad for me when she did not get the appointment to be Secretary of the VA. This blog has been waiting almost breathless. So sad, it's been weeks and no appointment. How could Donald Trump let me down like that?



How did that protecting Track from consequences thing go for you Sarah? Using him as a prop for your political bullshit rather than parenting, chemical dependency treatment and consequence have created a dangerous man. You covered for the crimes of your other kids as well while making sure other young people were harshly punished. You are an unbelievable hypocrit. That kind of thing just like some of your other dysfunctional issues is crazy making and why your son is the way he is. It was not the military, nope.

There was recent domestic violence.

Seymour Hersh Debunks the Russian Hacking Myth, Hillary Planning a Re-run and Talk Show? Please Help Us! National Park Service and NASA Rogue Twitter Accounts Run By Non-Employees to Protect People

At the library where I wrote this today
Seymour Hersh spoke out in an interview for the Intercept that the Russian hacking story is complete BS without evidence. This is quite obvious and has been for a long time. There is no evidence that Russia hacked the DNC emails. It was all a diversion to get people to look away from the real problem, the DNC, their lack of cybersecurity, the corrupt Clinton Foundation, what was in the leaked, yes leaked, not hacked DNC emails and their crap candidate. Word is HRC is going to run again and looking to start a talk show. Will her platform be based on having a vagina or Trump being a manipulated idiotic puppet of the Republicans who are puppets of the oligarchy which BTW included the right-wing Christo-fascists people were warned about for so long. Probably both.



What is the deal Democrats, we have all fallen for fake news, but then investigate, sort out the facts or get told it's BS and come to understand the reality of the fakeness. Why was everything Obama did not matter how heinous or Oligarchy oriented just A-OK with you, not a peep. Why were you so angry when the truth was pointed out? Why could you not see the truth about Hillary Clinton? Your blindness is the reason we have Trump and his collection of swamp creatures in the White House now. 

In four years, whoever gets elected will not be working on progress, but instead working to get us back to 2017 after the Trump administration is used by the deep state to tear anything that helps the people down. Let's make sure they do more than just put the same systems in place, let's look around and find a better health care system, put in better transportation systems, remake the school systems, revitalize the Constitution and make sure all people have their rights reinstated. We need to remake the agencies at the federal level in many ways to prevent corruption, waste of money and to insure the services people need are functioning, the right and left can agree on this at least.
 


Due to pressure and danger to coworkers the AltUSNatParkService people have decided to hand their twitter account over to people outside the government. The information is the same.



NASA also has a rogue twitter account which they have non-NASA people running. People are afraid of retaliation and loss of jobs. It could actually get worse than this. There are some people showing courage here but they had to back down to protect others. That paycheck is how they control us.
