{Reprint} Fox News Has Become A Cult Of Unconstitutional Capitalists!

"Few men have virtue enough to withstand the highest bidder."-George Washington

Bill Moyers and moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt talk about the psychological underpinnings of our contentious culture, why we can’t trust our own opinions, and the demonizing of our adversaries...

"Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party, generally." -George Washington

What Occupy Wall Street and The Tea Party Have In Common

There are two types of cults. One that just hurt themselves. Such as the cult of Christian Scientists who don't believe that God can work through man and thus ONLY pray for recovery from illnesses (they literally will not accept medicine even if thier kids are dying of diseases like polio or cancer). This type of cult are willing to let thier own die over unexamined faith but they do not affect others.
Fox News, on the other hand, has become a cult that is dangerous for the sanity and safety of US Citizens. As it is families are breaking up. Fox News has managed to pick up some of the loneliest and depressed people who need to find an outlet for thier anger and hate (which shouldn't be there in the first place... in many cases Fox News is the source of that unnecessary anger). They pay good-looking to hot women to essentially seduce lonely, old losers to support the causes they are paid to support, acting cute and then reading out the line "we report, you decide" - The report is biased, where do yoou think these lonely, old and horny men will go? (using lie detectors will determine which women really believe what they are saying and which ones know they are lying and merely doing it for the money or status)

Cenk Uygur gives examples of lies told on Fox News (with Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Megyn Kelly and others) in light of Wisconsin protesters calling out the network for lying.

Fox News won a court case that ALLOWS them to lie as they are a corporation!!!!


"Promote, then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened."-George Washington

Socialism is when ALL factors of production are provided by the State - basic econ 101 definition - (the healthcare bill is market based from heritage Institute based on Romney care). The GOP & Fox News call anything that goes against Ayn Rand's business survival fiction "socialist". - But, logic doesn't work. The guy's running Fox News are being investigated for 9/11 phone hacking in England and close associates of Rupert Murdoch HAVE BEEN CHARGED - Also, The GUY RUNNING FOX NEWS WAS WITH NIXON DURING WATERGATE!!!!!!!!!!!

Most recently Rupert Murdoch's close family friend was charged with perjury...
Rebekah Brooks...has an interesting history with Murdoch...
In March 2003 she courted controversy -- and hinted at the scandal to come -- when, appearing before a government committee, she admitted that her paper had paid police officers for information. 
Brooks held the Sun post until 2009 when she was handpicked for the role of News International chief executive by the paper's owner, media magnate Rupert Murdoch.
The pair had been close for many years: Murdoch is said to treat Brooks like a daughter.
Learn more about the Oligarch that LITERALLY controls Fox News as he has ALL the voting rights (i.e. everything that has happened with 2000 happened on his watch. Thus he must be held responsible to the same extent as others that this blog exposes...

Once Again, Murdoch Misuses the 26th Law of Power

There are three branches of the American Governmental System. They can be represented by the following diagram (from

The following is an interview of Justice Sandra O Conner the website she is promoting is Our Courts.Org

These Three Branches of Government, as written in the Us Constitution, contain the structure - laws, courts, contract laws, property rights - that structures society and was the vision and gift of the Founding Fathers. The capitalism the GOP espouses is exactly what the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution to avoid. i.e.
The US constitution has 3 branches of Government which, in theory, is supposed to help regulate the robber baron problem.

{Constitutional Capitalism} I'm sure there's a place for privatization. The problem with the "Government" messing up projects, for example roads, is corruption. Keep in mind that the government - according to the US Constitution - is for "we the people". When the government is not working for "we the people" we have to put it right. Giving it all to greedy corporations, is just silly... and unconstitutional.
First; The definition of a mixed economy: An economic system in which both the private enterprise and a degree of state monopoly (usually in public services, defense, infrastructure, and basic industries) coexist. All modern economies are mixed where the means of production are shared between the private and public sectors. Also called dual economy.
Civil services are written into the constitution. Fox news has been after the post offices, which can not only be saved profitably it's written into the Constitution. You can literally prove treason to the Constitution using the post office dramas. But I'm not in the mood. there is so much proof that this post is just a sample...

Laissez-Faire Capitalism is the idea that there should be no rules that in any way hinders private enterprise.
Here is the definition of Laissez-Faire Capitalism:  Laissez-faire capitalism is an economic system. Capitalism involves the ownership of property by individuals. The individual's goal is to use this property, or capital (buildings, machines, and other equipment used to produce goods and services), to create income. Individuals and companies compete with one another to earn money. This competition between companies determines the amount of goods produced and the prices company owners may demand for these goods. The French term laissez-faire literally means "to let people do as they wish." Thus, supporters of laissez-faire capitalism do not want the government to interfere in business matters, or if governments do involve themselves in business matters, to keep government influence to a minimum.
One result of no rules in private enterprise is that a person with money and thus the ability to buy influence (i.e. allot of money equals greater power, political and social) can destroy any chance of a competitor entering the marketplace.
In fact, without rules and law, people tend to be greedy and selfish. Something which is normally well-known. With no law there is no control over anyone with power using it unfairly against someone who is socially and politically weaker. Generally, this is seen as immoral by all religions and philosophies as being ruthless means there is no 'charity' and others must be manipulated to gain even more wealth and control (a never ending process). That is why religious sources tend to be against the 'might is right' belief embedded in Laissez-Faire Capitalism.
The following is a religious explanation(from Christianity) which is naturally against the type of behavior which takes from fellow human beings to the detriment of society;
Darwin's ideas played a critically important role in the development and growth, not only of Nazism and communism, but also of the ruthless form of capitalism as best illustrated by the robber barons. While it is difficult to conclude confidently that ruthless capitalism would not have blossomed as it did if Darwin had not developed his evolution theory, it is clear that if Carnegie, Rockefeller, and others had continued to embrace the unadulterated JudeoChristian worldview of their youth and had not become Darwinists, capitalism would not have become as ruthless as it did in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Morris and Morris (p. 84) have suggested that other motivations (including greed, ambition, even a type of a missionary zeal) stimulated the fierce, unprincipled robber baron business practices long before Darwin. Darwinism, however, gave capitalism an apparent scientific rationale that allowed it to be taken to the extremes that were so evident in the early parts of last century.
The basic argument against Laissez-Faire Capitalism (as opposed to a mixed economy with laws to help keep the market fair - see definition above)is that without rules, ruthlessness and "might is right" reigns supreme. Allowing the rich and powerful to take advantage of the weak.
In the feudal system, allot of power (through control of land and resources) was given to a few people by a king. These people would then do everything they could to take whatever they could at the cost of society and every other human that could be conned (that is generally in a different clan or family, though this didn't hold in all cases).
Such economic behavior (and an effect of Laissez-Faire Capitalism) was and is referred to as "Robber Barons";
What Does Robber Barons Mean? A disparaging term dating back to the 12th century which refers to: 1. Unscrupulous feudal lords who amassed personal fortunes by using illegal and immoral business practices, such as illegally charging tolls to passing merchant ships. 2. Modern-day businesspeople who allegedly engage in unethical business tactics and questionable stock market transactions to build large personal fortunes.
Regulating immoral business practices is an old function of modern democracies and modern economies. This is another reason why in the modern world government is mixed with private enterprise. To provide rules and a framework for a fairer society with more opportunity for all its citizens not just a few who happen to be on top and thus have the wealth and influence to get more and more while giving back less and less to the community that these individuals are from.
Mitt Romney literally worked as a Modern Day Robber Baron!!! Electing him would be like tearing the Constitution apart and burning it!!!! 
"The amounts of money are so vast that it is truly a matter of time before the taxation of private equity is front and center of the public agenda,” said James E. Post, a Boston University professor who teaches business-government relations. “Increasingly, this world of private equity looks like a world of robber barons, and Romney comes out of that world."
As Stephen Colbert explains...
'Mitt Romney CHOPS UP companies' ... does that remind you of any movie? Yes. It was Richard Gere's job in the movie Pretty Woman ...
"Edward is a rich, ruthless businessman who specializes in taking over companies and then selling them off piece by piece."

A Note On US Text Books...
The book "Lies My Teacher Told Me", is filled with concrete examples of important details that are left out of history books because they will create controversy and might make students ask questions. Instead the goal of history has become to bore a student with unrelated and mostly useless facts – that any bored person will do his/her best to avoid. The human brain learns and remembers what is emotionally stimulating.
If you tell history as a story with drama then it will tend to stick, "Emotion is the glue that causes history to stick". Author: James W. Loewen (Visit his webpage)
"Study after study shows that students successfully resist learning “facts” like these. Indeed they resist all too well. When two thirds of American seventeen year olds cannot place the Civil War in the right half-century or 22 percent of my students reply that the ‘Vietnam War was fought between North and South Korea’, we must salute young people for more than mere ignorance. This is resistance raised to a high level. Students are simply not learning even those details of American history that educated citizens should know about. Still less do they learn what caused the major development in our past. Therefore, they cannot apply lessons from the past to current issues. Unfortunately, students are left with no resources to understand, accept, or reject historical referents used in arguments by candidates for offices, sociology professors, or newspaper journalists. If knowledge is power, ignorance cannot be bliss."
In textbooks the goal seems to be to present history NOT as a human drama of evolving understanding with progress and reversals (1 step forward, 2 steps back) – but instead as an ever improving evolution to a better way of life.
Page 172 "Perhaps the most letting critic Frances Fitz Gerald made in her 1979 survery of American history textbooks, America Revised, was that they leave out ideas."
The problems with ideas is that sometimes it can be obvious which ideas are better yet the ones with the right ideas don’t always win. It is easier to force memorization of useless facts than the show the students that the world doesn’t work as continuous evolving society. The students would ask why. We all know how irritated some adults get when children keep asking why. Especially when they don’t know the answer and it is below them to accept that.
His basic message is that our history books are dooming us to repeat our mistakes of the past by forcing America to make decisions based on infomercial snippets, or angry racist talk show hosts as we have no background knowledge to make informed decisions. Lack of knowledge means a person can be controlled by using fear of the unknown. This is a situation that applies to the planet as a whole.

Satire: Texas School's Textbooks Went From Bad To Worse...

Since no one knows who Oscar Romero is, the Texas school board decides not to include him in the curriculum.

Loyola Law School inflates grades, Texas can't afford new science textbooks, and Wal-Mart helps its workers get college degrees.

Moment of Zen...

The average GOP Republican has the intelligence of the dufflepuds in Chronicles of Narnia part 3... except they use the word "oppressor" not "socialist". Dufflepuds =  ("The Oppressor" part I refer to above is after this, in the movie, can't find a direct clip)
PROOFS: One: On Socialism
1. Socialism by Robert Heilbroner (Article From Library of Economics):"Socialism—defined as a centrally planned economy in which the government controls all means of production"

2. What Is Capitalism?

3. Education Part 1 - The Problem Of Psychiatric Drugs
1. Compares socialism and redistribution rhetoric to Santa giving gifts on Christmas,
2. Compares socialism to helping people, for example, Jesus to a socialist (he redistributed loaves of bread and fish),
3. Rhetoric accuses Obama of being a Marxist,
4. Republicans are creating fear about Obama calling him a communist/socialist and scaring people into thinking that they will lose all they own as it will get 'redistributed'.
Definition of SOCIALISM
1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods 2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state 3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
1. Gifts as 'redistribution':
Santa clause giving gifts to children is a type of 'redistribution of income', so is feeding children to keep them from starving...
For many, summer means vacation, sports, camping or just time off to relax, but not for millions of kids living in poverty in the United States. There are few camps or beach trips for them, and sometimes not even three meals a day. During the school year, public schools provide breakfast and lunch to millions of students in the United States. But when summer arrives, parents struggling to feed their children can no longer rely on those meals.
2. Republicans have classified ANY help to ANYONE as 'socialism'.
However, That goes against the principles of Christianity and is more in-line with the fictional teachings of Ayn Rand. Ayn Rand's philosophy is of rational self interest and she states that the purpose of life is in pursuing your own happiness with NO regard for others well-being...

"Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought most to be deprecated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society."-George Washington
1. She claims to be challenging the moral code of altruism,
2. Altriusm is immoral is it is placed above oneself (i.e. nothing should be above you), and
3. If a man or woman is weak they don't deserve love.
On the other hand... Matthew 14:13-21
Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand 13 When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. 15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” 16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” 17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. 18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

 ‎"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

Immortalized in the poem of Emma Lazarus; the Statue speaks eternally the words of compassion: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." These words from the "The New Colossus," written in 1883, appear on the Statue's pedestal.

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name,
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

In other words,

Ayn Rand's philosophy is of rational self interest and she states that the purpose of life is in pursuing your own happiness with NO regard for others. Obviously, from a religious perspective, that's the path of the Devil...
Moment Of Zen...

"Let the record show that on January 16, 2012, the good people of South Carolina booed the Golden Rule." Jon Stewart  (i.e. The Golden Rule is what Jesus preached, the GOP has partnered with Fox News to turn Christians against the teachings of Jesus while making them believe that they ARE following the teachings of Jesus... talk about the trick of a devil!)

Previous Post: Analysis of treason by the GOP and Fox News by economic war "Rise Of The GOP Neo-Nazi's & The Cult Of Romney" 

A Minor Redistribution of Income (i.e. 2-3% increase in Tax rate) - See what Jesus did above to compare - is turned into rhetoric of socialism and treason. Who is the traitor here? The Fox News Corporation controlled by an Oligarch with convicted close associates OR Jesus?
So much fuss over a 2% tax increase! (Note: If someone says 'a 2-3% tax increase om the super rich is not fair', explain tax burden to them... this is obviously a case of renaming something for the purposes of marketing a political message irrespective of the reality behind what is being said... this is another form of lying or deception)

More Satire (Can you handle this much truth?):

Money Talks - The Maopets & Wealth on Film: Fox News identifies "The Muppets" movie as communist propaganda, and John Hodgman analyzes Hollywood's depiction of the rich and powerful as greedy, bloated space turds.

Sponge Bob as a brainwasher! (a cartoon the kids so small watch there is no way they understand it! - The references are for adults who arn't old people watching Hannity or O'Reilly i.e. so they don't get bored watching thier kids cartoons.)

Contextual Evidence Of Racism In The Confederate South

Who is Ayn Rand?
Simple answer; She was a woman who wrote a fiction book about business tactics of survival of the fittest which is not even remotely promote survival of "we the people" i.e. implementing Ayn Rand's philosophy is literally UNCONSTITUTIONAL. (and thus treason)
The following extract is from a 'Brief Biography of Ayn Rand': "Ayn Rand was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, on February 2, 1905. At age six she taught herself to read and two years later discovered her first fictional hero in a French magazine for children, thus capturing the heroic vision which sustained her throughout her life. At the age of nine, she decided to make fiction writing her career"
Notes on Ayn Rand from the above video:
Her philosophy is of rational self interest and she states that the purpose of life is in pursuing your own happiness with NO regard for others.
In the video clip of her interview in the above video you will find the following: .
She claims to be challenging the moral code of altruism Altriusm is immoral is it is placed above oneself (i.e. nothing should be above you). If a man of woman is weak they don't deserve love.
In some instances it is appropriate to be selfish and in other instances it isn't ... "This officer — like so many others I have met with on bases, in Baghdad and Bagram, at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital — spoke with humility about how hisunit worked together as one — depending on each other, and trusting one another, as a family might do in a time of peril."
One Christian's view on Ayn Rand: "Last month, author and Coffee Party contributor Michael Stafford's widely read essay decried the "Paul Ryan" budget and humorously compared Ryan's intellectual hero, Ayn Rand, to L. Ron Hubbard. On our blog talk radio show, Stafford described himself as a Republican and a true conservative who refuses to abandon his party to Glenn Beck and the politics of resentment. His writing is that of a man of faith who applies the teachings of the Bible to civic life, without the filter of partisan electioneering. Stafford, and other conservative leaders, are directly confronting political strategists on the far right, including Congressman Ryan, who are using the philosophy of Ayn Rand to supplant the teachings of the Bible with regard to our responsibility to society and our attitudes toward the elderly and the less fortunate, in order to muster public support for policies that benefit only the super-wealthy and multi-national corporations."
On her own Ayn Rand is fine. She had her philosophy. She wrote some fiction books and made allot of sales. I'm happy for her. The problem the United States is facing now is, for some odd reason, the leaders of the Republican Party (and thus its news channel Fox) have decided to adopt the philosophy of a fiction writer as their party platform. That is absurd. (Here is a link to a movie about her)
Paul Ryan is a professed follower of Ayn Rand, the same philosophy followed by Alan Greenspan which he used to destroy the economy and later said he was wrong to assume a fox could morally gaurd a henhouse. Even though he admitted this in a congressional hearing, the Oligarch - and SOLE OWNER - of Fox News continues to promote an economically defunct theory. Even nuns are against the sheer immorality of Paul Ryan's plan...

Paul Ryan Is A Liar And A Hypocrite

Two: On Obvious Fox News Lies (slip ups)...

1. Introductory Video 1 - Moment of Zen - Ronald Reagan supports unions and collective bargaining in a speech from the 80s. (00:09) 

2. Introductory Video 2 - Moment of Zen - Public Employee Union vs. Wall Street Bonus Contracts:

3. The relationship between Republican governors and their states goes from cool new boyfriend to psychotic stepdad.

(Notice the elimination of social structure and jobs; By decreasing the social services available to lower incomes you have a break down of society at the social level of the lower to middle income class. This causes a great deal of stress on the economy and family structure of a country.)

FOX NEWS IS LITERALLY USING HATE, RACISM AND TREASON ('seceding from the union' type of rhetoric)
But that's not the worst part. It's like it was written in the Screw-tape Letters, the devil gets to you by appealing to your good nature and make you think you are doing the right thing... and after a while when you are totally committed to a position then, he reveals the truth to you watches as you get caught up in the sin of pride trying to defend the position you wrongly took through misinformation. Pride leads to other sins. i.e. once you start defending an obvious lie you are walking down the path of the devil...

Fox News is literally promoting outdated scripture from "Leviticus" which is obviously superseded by Jesus's two most important commandment, i.e. 'To love God body mind and soul' and 'To love your neighbor as yourself' - which are in the Gospels of the New Testament which, in theory at least, is supposed to be more accurate than the Old Testament - at least that's what I learned in my college classes on Christianity... (unless you are so filled with self-hatred all you wish for you neighbor is ill will, ill health and death... but if you do then by definition you are NOT a real Christian).
Fox News lies and coverups have reached such a high level that cult is the ONLY way to explain it's behavior. A cult that keeps to itself isn't dangerous. But a cult that seeks to impose it's views on others while refusing to see reason OR even the hypocrisy in thier own religious positions... must be dealt with like a cult.
I do realize that by this definition the Nazi's were a cult as well. That overlap makes sense given how often Fox News uses the words Nazi to describe anyone who disagrees with them (see examples above).

Fox News Lies: A List...

Fox News is large enough in the US to be it's own echo chamber (and the fact that many false beliefs originate from Fox News broadcasts proves this - see Examples of Echo Chambers Part 1) which would be OK to an extant as long as they didn't lie. Unfortunately...
