The ruthless State of the Union: the current crime boss speaks

by Jon Rappoport

February 13, 2013

Perhaps it’s presidents running down the whole laundry list of issues, but it seems to me the last dozen or so State of the Union speeches by presidents could put a galaxy of insomniacs to sleep.

Originally, the State of the Union was the president talking to Congress. Now we all know no one from the Senate or the House is going to move a new inch by anything the president says in his speech.

It’s just a dog and pony show. It’s also a chance for the president to talk to the television audience. That’s the real event. The president’s on TV.

It’s a stage play and it closes the night it opens. The script is always too long. It should have been cut by nine-tenths in rehearsals.

The droning of the laundry list is, of course, a reflection of the fact that big government has its paws and nose in every facet of our lives. I was waiting for Obama to talk about an adequate supply of toilet paper and paper towels in public-park restrooms, and the danger of pictures of guns brought to school.

And how about those unsightly vegetable gardens growing on front lawns? Would he bring in the FBI and the ATF and DHS to solve that problem?

Would he push for free sex-change operations for all college students? Radioactive body scanners in coffee shops? I think the system for assigning names to hurricanes and blizzards should be subjected to a task-force study.

When tonight Obama said the only way to make progress was for us all to work together, he didn’t just mean the Congress. He meant the American people, aka the television audience. But I’ve never understood that idea. What are we all working together to accomplish? What’s the program? Giving away more of our income to the federal government? Agreeing to more surveillance of our movements? Supporting the invasion of more countries? Refraining from photographing the police making arrests? Restricting our Facebook posts to happy faces and rainbows?

Are we all working together to surrender our guns in exchange for movie tickets and candy? Are we pretending to be overjoyed that the federal government wants to force everyone to get vaccinated and eat GMO food, and take SSRI antidepressants that demonstrably cause people to go crazy and kill others? Is that it?

Are we somehow working together to print endless amounts of money? Are we working together to push the percentage of Americans collecting free government money from 40 percent to 60 percent? Is that the glorious goal?

Are we working together to give money to alternative-energy companies so they can go broke and declare bankruptcy? Are we working together to protect and defend the World Trade Organization, so ravenous mega-corporations can export jobs to China and roam the global landscape, raping and pillaging resources and labor?

Are we working together to accept Obamacare, which will steadily eliminate natural-health alternatives and enroll more people in a medical system that kills 225,000 people (actually a lot more) every year like clockwork? Is that the goal?

Are we working together to pretend we have two very different major political parties in the country, instead of one party with two heads?

Are we working to assure that no bankster is ever sent to prison for scamming the American people out of trillions of dollars?

Are we working together to take guns away from people who would only use them to defend themselves and their families against criminals, while at the same we work to ignore gang violence stemming in part from the fact that Mexican drug cartels use these gangs as subcontractors, under the protection of the federal government?

Are we working together to imagine that our troops are really fighting wars to protect and defend the nation?

Are we working together to hide the fact that, although interest rates are artificially low, we’re spending more and more money every month to buy what we need to survive?

Are we working together to hamstring every small business in America with red tape and taxes?

Are we working together to ignore the absurd insanity called climate-change science, so the government can install carbon taxes and penalties and lop the top off of American industry?

Are we all working together to frame attractive free incentive packages for unlimited numbers of immigrants who come to America, while untold numbers of Americans are going hungry every night, and people can’t find jobs anywhere? Is that the objective? Destabilization of society, under the cynical guise of humane gift-giving?

Are we working to dream that when the president says he’s going to focus on jobs in his second term, this means he’s actually going to do more than squint at the sun?

Are we working to find more foreign enemies we can invade, as our military advance teams pave the way for imperial corporations and continue to launch some sort of ridiculous “surround Russia” operation?

Are we all working together to drown the Third World in “free” medical drugs and vaccines that destroy immune systems, rather than cleaning up contaminated water supplies and installing simple sanitation systems (at a millionth of the cost of the drugs)?

Are we all working together just “to work together” and continue the fine tradition of destroying the nation from the inside?

That’s what I thought. Yes, that’s what I thought.

The Matrix Revealed

Hell of a speech, Mr. President. You and GW and Bill and Bush the Elder and Ronnie and Jimmy and Gerry and Nixon really know your laundry lists. You talk, and the government gets bigger. It’s magic.

There’s always more to do and the government has to make it happen. Otherwise, what are you there for?

I ask myself that question all the time. I’m still looking for an answer, other than, “We’re all in this together.”

Who is this WE you keep taking about? And what is this TOGETHER? You mean we who are watching on television and you who are talking on television? You mean you who are slicing the Constitution into little pieces while ridiculing it as a Neanderthal document? You mean you who are covert agents of Globalism? You mean you who have been vetted to make sure you’re on board with the op to take American down into a planetary management system that will bring a thousand years of peace to people made over into androids?

That’s what I thought.

You talk and the government gets bigger. You bankroll education and students are brainwashed into “uplifting social themes,” and become more dumb. You talk and the state-corporate media strain themselves into hernias to praise your erudition or passion. You talk and thousands of lobbyists who have the inside track on your souls parse your words and plan their new strategies. You talk and the American people desperately try to imagine you’re making a grain of sense. You talk and the winds blow and the snow falls and Somebody Actually Important, at a much higher level of the Mob, pats you on your shoulder and folds you up like a puppet and drops you in his pocket and walks upstairs to the Residence and puts you to sleep.

Asleep, you dream of a strange and alien thing: the freedom and power and independence of the individual. For you, it’s a nightmare.

    Go get em Jon Boy!! You are right on target.

  2. roberta4949 says:

    words no better spoken then this, hypocrisy, lies, deceit, blood shed, robbery, injustice all in the name of humanity, is the worse kind of sin. pretending to care about justice, peace and prosperity when in their hearts they are devising a way to enslave and fleece every bit of wealth and power they can. they speak with fork tongue, now we know how the native americans felt.

  3. Ryan Ashton says:

    Jon, your reporting of mass media events always serves to reassure me when I realize I have no idea what goes on in TV land. This reminds me of a great episode of The Simpsons where advertisement characters turned into monsters destroying Springfield. The solution to the problem was for the town to simply not pay attention to them.

    In like manner, I think our country would be on the mend if, when the globalists attempted to run their dog and pony shows for the masses, no one bothered to look. Just like a boycott of a real business equals death for that business, so a boycott of the political “business” would poison it to death.

  4. Chris says:

    Just like a movie, Obama rushes up to the podium while America says “damn right… there’s our leader.” people have forgotten how to control, lead, dictate their own lives… This country is wacky but I think their ongoing obsession with eliminating our freedom is even worse.

  5. Ellen1 says:

    it’s about time that such words become VERY widespread and spoken by the majority in this beleaguered country, under attack by its own government.

  6. Ian MacLeod says:

    I HAD to start with this: Jon, here’s your audience:

    “…then this… blood shed,…is the worse kind of sin. …to enslave and fleece every bit of wealth and power they can….they speak with fork tongue…, now we know how the native americans felt”

    No, I think they were smarter than this. And “felt” is the wrong tense,

    And about those 6 million new jobs..? I don’t think he’s considered what they’re going to do when nobody can afford to buy the burgers those 6 million people are hired to flip. .As for what’s happening, it’s getting to where almost everyone but the our brainwashed, mind-controlled, (brain-entrained to violence?) cops and some military know that Americans are being set up for depopulation and enslavement. MORE enslavement I mean. Anyone see the article a cop broke into a man’s home looking for drugs, and because he “thought it was a gun” the man was holding in front of his crotch because he was naked while trying figure out what was happening instead of a wadded-up T-short, the cop shot him – in the gut. His victim said he’d done nothing to deserve this and asked if he was going to die. The cop shouted “Shut up!” as his victim fell into a coma that lasted weeks. He was justified though – apparently he found a joint in the place, and a judge ruled he’d (the cop that is) done nothing wrong.

    There are over a thousand of these a year now aren’t there? It’s a perfect example of how America’s government now deals with Americans! And what is there to do? Consider that the President, all the top military, all appointees. the SCOTUS and all other officials and official agencies are ALL owned, and NOT by us! There is no longer ANY legal route for complaints and redress! Any other generation in this country would long since have acted. “The Law” is now a hired servant of an enemy that has infiltrated every level of official power there is. When the President himself considers the Constitution to be nothing more than a quaint and outmoded historical document, America has successfully been infiltrated, invaded and taken over by a hostile power.

    So what’s our next move?

    Hiprocracy lies and deceit lies further back than Obama. It’s been this way since Veitname era at least.

    Great post Jon, you touch my very soul;

    “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free – it expects what never was and never will be.”
    ~Thomas Jefferson

    The universal despotism and injustice has given me raw nerves…a hyper sensitivity to all of this.

    I have lost patience with the ignorance and naivete that submits to such injustice and by acquiescence empowers the tyrants ruling the planet.

    I am enraged by the duplicity of ‘going along to get along’ by the ignorant and self imposed serfdom of those too timid to face reality head-on. Especially those who believe that the clearly despotic state will save them.

    I rage against this darkness and will not kneel to it in silence. Those who are shocked by my passion NEED shocking, they need to be slapped awake in no uncertain terms. When being slapped awake and yanked from their beds by stormtroopers it will be too late.


  9. RT says:

    I’d add to this but you covered it all Mr. Rappoport !

  10. Joyce says:

    the only way to make progress is for us all to WORK…..

    I agree with you Mary Ann. It probably goes back to the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which signaled an internal take-over by pure evil,eventually leading up to the Vietnam war and everything we have today.

  12. C. Burkey says:

    Jeesh….you watched the whole thing??? I feel for you..
    On the subject of “working together” you might enjoy this essay by the late Joe Bageant.

    Meanwhile the hearings at Gitmo continue but no one’s looking over in that direction.

    Well. Blocked from Facebook now. “The content you’re trying to share includes a link that’s been blocked for being spammy or unsafe.” I guess I really shouldn’t be surprised.


    Yea. Facebook has removed the post on Facebook referring to this blog post. Has the JR Blog arrived? Or, maybe someone was just spamming the comments of the FB post.

    The FB post of this blog post can still be found here:

    As usuall your facts are right on and disturbing at the same time. How do we get the truth to the masses ? This is something I have been grappling with for the past year and a half when I had the time to explore and wake up to the reality of what is happening I had the time after loosing a third generation family business to the bankster follies in 2008.
    My family and friends think I have lost my mind. The problem is they are so caught up in there quest to keep there heads above water , that they like so many others are simply unaware and in sleep induced denial. Most can’t believe the government is just a big bad business that cares not the least about it’s citizens , but about money and power for the elite imperialist
    How do we educate all under the ether of lies and deception???

  15. Bobby says:

    Jon, excellent article. Most Americans deserve what is coming down the pike at them, because they are, LAZY, WILLFULLY STUPID, POLITICALLY IGNORANT, and CLUELESS to what the very evil elite in this nation have planned for them. Great article, thank you.

  16. Anonymous says:

    He meant WE in an orwellian sense like WE, who are all equal excepting some of us who are more equal then the others.

  17. Matt says:

    Facebook is blocking your article to post… I reposted it on and shared it on facebook. Hope it’s ok. (If not I will remove it).

    In any case… well said.



  18. John says:

    I tried to share this to Facebook, but was blocked by Facebook!

  19. jujigatame says:

    Why did no one tell me when I signed on here and paid for advertising that FaceBook practiced censorship? If it does, and this article is being blocked, I will expect to have my funds reimbursed. There is only on response to censorship – censorship.

  20. […] I became aware of the block and censorship a few days ago, soon after I wrote and published the article: “Ruthless State of the Union: current crime boss speaks.” […]

  21. You are now inducted into the HONOR class…..only the best get facebooked..

  22. I am reblogging this.. I tried on facebook and it is blocked..

  23. Debra J says:

    Bravo!! Bravo!! You are a master with bringing the words to express how many people feel about this pathetic situation. I reposted with links to reach more people. I found it Inspiring!! THANK YOU.

  24. Grampa Scott says:

    Excellent truths. I wanted to hear him talk about killing innocent civilians with drones… Of course, no mention of those things with everything else you covered. Good work my friend!

  25. Michael Moulds says:

    I posted a message on fb about you being censored. I worded it in such a way as not to mention your name, but it posted.

  26. InalienableWrights says:

    Can we start a campaign to petition NSA book to reinstate the page?

    What is the URL of Jon’s disappeared page? They have in the past reinstated pages when enough people have gotten upset.

  27. […] other day I wrote and published a piece headlined: “The Ruthless State of the Union: the current crime boss speaks.” That may have been the article that triggered the Facebook Blip. In it, I responded to […]

  28. […] Now, in our collectivist society of 2013, The Group, as a rapidly expanding victim class, is the government’s number one project. While extolling this group as heroic and in constant need of help, the government is doing everything it can to crash the economy and widen the population of victims. It’s a straight con. “We’re here to make you worse off while we lift you up.” […]
