Ms. Pumpkin Head for President: A Nightmare

Edward Curtin

A few weeks ago I had a terrifying nightmare, so gruesome was it that I awoke screaming and had to run to the bathroom to vomit in the toilet. In this dark horror show, I was carving a pumpkin for Halloween.

The cap came off easily and I disemboweled the slimy interior quickly, but as I did, I felt a strange sensation on my hand, as if a tongue were biting it.

When I was finishing carving the face, however, the trouble really started.

The pumpkin head came alive as the eyes and mouth moved and then it started speaking in a voice that was familiar but one I couldn’t place. Blond hair started sprouting from its head as it started shrieking and bouncing on the table in an hysterical manner.

I jumped back in fear and trembling as it started cackling, “I running, I running.”

Blood ran from between the carved teeth and the blue eyes pulsated with the mania of a serial killer in a horror movie.

I awoke with a scream when I realized it was Hillary Clinton.

So hideous was this night terror that I kept it to myself. But a week later when the next Democratic pseudo-debate was being promoted, I said to my wife that something told me that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic nominee and the debates were a sideshow.

She said she thought that would never happen and that Clinton was now hated and done for.

I disagreed without recounting my nightmare because to describe it at that point would have induced more retching at the thought of the night monster.

Then this past week during the Democratic debate, the courageous Tulsi Gabbard put the lie to the murderous militarism of U.S. foreign policy and its regime change operations with its use of American supported terrorists in Syria and throughout the world.

She calmly and eloquently denounced the militarist positions of the other candidates standing beside her, as they listened disquieted and disturbed to a patriotic American speaking truth that they dare not even think, so bought and sold are they.

She was a woman alone among a cast of sycophants denouncing the murderous policies carried out by presidents Democratic and Republican and foisted on the American people through a vast network of propaganda, appealing to their worst instincts.

It was a stunning few minutes, for it is so rare, almost unheard of, for a politician to tell Americans the brutal truth about their government.

To many it was a sign of hope, but to the evil forces that run this country, Rep. Gabbard had gone too far and the knives came out in force, this time led by the pumpkin-headed Hillary Clinton and her accomplices at The New York Times and The Washington Post, who have consistently trashed Tulsi Gabbard in an effort to destroy her candidacy.

I felt my dream was prophetic when Clinton, in her slimy manner, attacked Tulsi Gabbard, without naming her, by saying:

I’m not making any predictions but I think they’ve [The Russians] got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.

Well, I ain’t making any prediction either; I’m leaving that up to my nightmare to do my talking.

It tells me that Hillary-O-Lantern, spitting blood, is running and gunning again.

She’s the favorite of the CIA and the military industrial complex and all those who profit from war and live off the deaths of victims everywhere.

They have bunches of sites and bots and fake news conspirators and all sorts of ways of supporting her, which they have been doing for many years, straight through their constructed Russia-gate and Ukraine-gate conspiracies and her barbaric support for wars everywhere, including the destruction of Libya and her joyful response to the fiendish death of Muammar Gaddafi, among so may atrocities.

Tulsi, never cowered, said it straight and true in response:

Great, Thank you. You the Queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain.

From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and concerted campaign to destroy my reputation.

We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.

It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.

She later said, “I stand against everything she represents.”

Halloween is the time for masks and dissembling. Hillary Clinton is a figure straight out of a grotesque Halloween party, as are her clones in the Democratic party.

Tulsi Gabbard was not invited to their party but came anyway, and came to tell the truth about the masquerade.

She has torn off Clinton’s mask and asks the American people to see the true face of Clinton and all her minions, who represent the triumph of war and death, and the sick play we have been living through, an endless war on terror justified by endless lies.

Norman O. Brown so well describes our stage set:

Ancestral voices prophesying war; ancestral spirits in the danse macabre or war dance; Valhalla, ghostly warriors who kill each other and are reborn to fight again.

All warfare is ghostly, every army an exercitus feralis (army of ghosts), every soldier a living corpse.

Lying is the leading cause of living death in the United States.

Tulsi Gabbard has told the truth.

Like me, I am sure you don’t want your nightmares to become reality. Let’s live in the truth.

“She’s the favorite of the CIA and the military industrial complex and all those who profit from war and live off the deaths of victims everywhere.”

Someone BTL OffG recently made a similar and most telling point about some sinister crooks behind the fixing of the U$ presidential race: The CIA runs the U$ drug racket, and Obanker’s parents ran a laundry for CIA dirties. Before Obomba and Kilary Clinton there were future POTU$A George Bush Senior controlling the CIA, and at the same time future POTU$A Willie Clinton controlling the Arkansaw airfield which took CIA drug deliveries from Afghanistan. (Lord and Lady McBeth of Arkansaw are implicated in the cover-up of two boys who saw something and were murdered at that airfield). And now Kilary Clinton is revived like a vampire.

All in the Dracula Family. My question: is it enough to track them down one by one and drive a stake through their heart? Or is there some principle of evil — perhaps in the human heart, or even in the Heavens — which regenerates such monsters in each generation, so that the war between good and evil is ever renewing?

Great! new Bin Laden has been killed by special op forces using helicopters to get to his secret cave where he ran screaming and whimpering with his wifes and kids to hide behind before blowing himself and them all to pieces so there are no remains, witnesses, prisoners, funerals or trials to worry about. Just like last time Obama did. The seal team found a lot of fish too.

Again? Yes again. And pretty much exactly the same script. Medals of Honour all round!

Wow, that must mean that isil or aq or whatever are completely destroyed for sure and there really is absolutely no reason at all for the western forces and mercenaries to be in Syria at all just like Trump has been demanding for months now and whichever worrier general on the ground that decided to order in tanks and forces to protect the syrian oil fields from the new bin ladens aq/isil instead of obeying the cic’s orders to do the opposite, can now rest assured that there is no threat left and bin laden is dead and will not rise again. So the poor syrian army will therefore be able to protect their own syrian oil fields from any aq/isil threat. So the US can finally follow the orders of their cic potus Trump and remove their brave arses out of the syrian oil fields.
The syrian army can look after syrian interests unless they ask for help from the USA. If they can’t rely on Russians to help, or Iran or hell even the handy Kurds.

Is that ok?

Lols. Trumps got them by the balls and jumping through hoops.

I presume the pantomime is his way of letting them avoid arrest, trial, jail and fines and securing a clear run at re-election.

I do hope he puts the boot in on our complicit DS and tory/nulab neolib conmen so that Labours forthcoming victory isn’t marred by msm bullshit and election meddling.

Now just as soon as Macron is stuffed by the grown ups of the EU we can look forward to a very merry xmas with Labour in Downing street.

I heard that the cowardly scoundrel was cowering behind several puppies and kittens that he was holding up to shield himself. The wretch was also wearing women’s underwear beneath his suicide vest. Fortunately, he had enough time to cower and cringe in the approved and required manner before being despatched by the intrepid heroes of Transsexual Team Six. This was the first ever transgender commando operation, a triumph for diversity and inclusiveness. We can shortly expect the wholly factual portrayal of the whole operation in the imminent Hollywood blockbuster.

There is one eternal truth in democracy. No-one can stop Americans voting for Tulsi Gabbard.

There are voting machines programmed to rig voting of course, which is why you Americans should return to paper voting as soon as possible.

Only you Americans can resist the Deep State nonsense and vote in your tens of millions for principled candidates. We foreigners who are deeply affected by US foreign policy and power projection (British justice is currently being massacred to appease US interests demanding that Julian Assange be tortured to death….) can only point out the truth and hope you voters take notice.

If someone told to vote for Hillary Clinton the quid pro quo would be them murdering all their children before election day in my presence. In other words: no way, Jose…..

Ditto Joe Biden.

I am not a great admirer of Trump but rather him than Clinton or Biden.

Long beyond due that you Americans had the principles to support decent candidates and actually vote for them in November 2020….

Some people manage to encompass this evil in their music. I’m not surprised he left The Stranglers, but I was camping with him for 3 days last year when it was very hot, and he seemed a really nice bloke. He still looks the same.

I don’t think there’s a significant colour element with her. I can see a lot of disappointed deplorables who wanted to see the troops coming home turning to her. All the democrats are rabid warmongers who want to bomb everybody now.

On the other side of the pond – the complete msm wailing, as the neverending war, Russiaphobic anti-Trump conspiracies fall apart and implicates them in a criminal conspiracy along with their 3 lettered spivs – the full blowback will take out our MI6/GCHQ/neolib establishment with their collusion in it all.

In Europe the GJ’s, in Spain the Catalans, in Italy and across the EU the grassroot anti-rightists, heck even their Ukraine proxy giving up the game.

We are in a grand revolutionary phase of history repeating. The aristos normally instigating mass culling of the proles and granting a few crumbs to the remainder for a generation or two, before clawing it back and more. Unfortunately wars are too destructive to guarantee the safety of them and theirs in the modern age. So some other methods – Terrorism, enemy within, worship of policing and security services – have been used. What’s left when they fail? manufactured plague!??

This time they will have to give back and pay their fair share while they wait a generation or two before clawing back. Or we may stop repeating history.

Show trials are an inevitable consequence of the kind of one-party system defining the US and British political landscape.

No place for brave journalists in the kind of world envisaged by Pumkin Head or British lackies who have become expert in penetrating American arses with their tongue.

Blond hair started sprouting”

To fit in our today’s society, becoming blond is imperative. We are living in the ‘Peroxide’ age. Peroxide or bleach, a toilet cleaning agent, the repungent smell of ammonia, and a pillar of our today’s Western Civilisation. Look at all the photos (for fun) in all news websites and see how much humanity has been soaked in Peroxide. Buying shares in Peroxide manufacturers makes a great investment!

It is here, the MSM Blond colour revolution: The Peroxide Revolution!

Long Live Peroxide. Long Live the Bleach Civilisation. Long Live The Mistress of The Universe, Madame Clinton!

Baby Blonde works well, if after 66 years here, it is still growing out of your head. The sun is even better…builds up your vitamin D for the coming winter. I suspect this year it is going to be incredibly cold, like in 1963.

Prepare for it or die.

I hope its warm, but I don’t believe them.

Though soaked in peroxide, their condition was described as fair. Didn’t Neville Shute write a post apocalypse novel, “On the Bleach”? In Glasgow, a woman with evidently coloured hair was known as a “Suicide Blonde” i.e. dyed by her own hand.

There’s something strange about Amerika, something not real causing Edward’s nightmares.

Between Pupkinhead and the Tangerine Scream, there is little to choose in the cracker factory stakes. Except Tulsi floating like an Angel in the belly of the beast. Speaking truth to power, as she does quite innocently, watch as the ghouls com-bust. And MSM cannot bring itself to even report her words in case they sear themselves to their mastheads.

Jack o’ lantern was a pagan mythical spirit to keep the evil ones away. As with all things Amerikan the whole story has been completely inverted.

There is something very real causing Edward’s nightmares. It is called reality. That is the natural laws of the primordial and praeternatural Dynamic Earth System. Sole source of our ‘corporeality’.

Only: we created another ‘reality’ – a Hyperreality – a ‘more-real-than-real’ philoso-political-economic system – that is in complete disregard of the underlying system finite dynamics and particularly – thermodynamics. And now we are paying the price of having two competing systems – the sustainable Real and unsustainable Imaginary.

All the outer manifestations of delusional growth are in competition with the diminishing returns from an increasingly exterminated productivity of the Earth System. And still we want more. And still we want greater returns than we can actually extract from the Earth Systems we are killing. And still we believe that our system is superior to the Earth System. Our narcissistic self-conceit will not tolerate any bound.

This is the nature of our waking hallucinations and walking terrors. I call it ‘Wetiko Materialism’ …which is our auto-all-consuming cruelty and destructiveness. We have to so insulate ourselves from the horror and cruelty our lives actually cause – we can barely be human any more. Our first person live experiential corporeality is compromised.. Not that you would know it. The Hyperreal levels of abstract representations we live in insulate almost completely from the eqiprimordial beauty and raw abject horror of our reality. But there is still a kernel of humanity within – that erupts in dreams to cause us terror for who we have become.

So long as the state and autonomic Cartesian subject are co-constituted from the same faith-based progressive delusional belief-set of eternal expansionism – of desires and dreams flowing freely through Hyperreal imaginations …unbound by consequence, self-responsibility, and completely contrary to the natural laws we willfully ignore …the worse the horror …the worse the day-terrors. The Fascisms we have chosen will soon be upon us. The total rejection of the political reality we have co-constituted from faith-based imagination is itself rejected because it is ‘real’ …Hyper-normalised Hyperreality. It soon will be for most of us.

As the Fascism we chose because we refused to live by a fairly fundamental set of rules we learned long ago – but chose to ignore for the impossibility of infinite growth in a finite system. As Joseph Conrad has Marlowe recount the final words of Kurtz – in ‘Heart of Darkness’:

“The Horror!” “The Horror!”

As Kurtz finally confronts his psychically repressed humanity – suppressed by vivid imaginations of ethno-supremicism; imperialism; vicious brutality; unbelievable cruelty; etc …all the foundations of the political-economic system we make abstract representations into noble lies to defend. Until the end.

A couple of nights before the 2016 American elections, I had a very vivid dream of a giant mushroom cloud and a nuclear wasteland populated by skeletons.
I fully believed that would have been the result had Pyscho Hillary become President instead of Trump.
When I heard Trump had won, I actually slumped to the ground and laughed out loud, such was my relief.
And I’m sure there were many others who realised what the ultimate consequence of imposing a No Fly zone over Syria would have been.
I fully agree that you stand up to thugs and bullies, otherwise they will walk all over you, and squash you.
However, I wonder if Tulsi Gabbard really understands the evil she is poking a stick at?
People that have no qualms about destroying entire countries, causing the death of hundreds of thousands of children thru sanctions, blockading ports, supporting fascist dictators and jihadist terrorists in Syria, supporting death squads in Central America, fully supporting mass murderers like Efrain Rios Montt and Mobutu Sese Seko, staging false flags, overthrowing dozens of Govts, turning a blind eye on the crimes against the Palestinians, assassinations by drone, on and on.
The people responsible for all this (and more) are the same ones Tulsi is shining a light on. She needs to watch her back. Thanks Edward.

So much shit has gone down over the past two decades that it’s numbing to look back and think of how all that crap would have been treated if everyone had been told in advance e.g.

“Would you believe that three buildings will collapse in seconds all on the same day, the rubble will be removed and everyone will believe it was all due to plane crashes and fire?”

“Would you believe everyone will be told a plane hit the Pentagon all based on a photo of the building with a hole in it?”

“Would you believe a Middle Eastern country will be bombed to rubble just for allegedly having weapons – bearing in mind that, for half a century, Russia definitely did have weapons and no-one attacked her?”

“Would you believe that, after the aforementioned bombing, it will be found out that there were no weapons anyway and yet the attackers will not only get away with it but even present themselves as the ‘existentially concerned’ victims?” (cf. American Sniper movie)

“And would you believe that Russia, after the Soviet system collapsed, will once again become the international bad guy, despite all the other bullshit as listed above?”

It’s almost like the Americans ( and the rest of us by extension) are being tested and given a last chance.
Vote for pure evil, an obvious psychopath but who is supported by pure evil which makes up most of the establishment. The test being able to recognise the evil in plain site.
Or vote for decency and peace. Gabbard a lone voice but a powerful one who is likely to steer us away from nuclear oblivion.

The choice is really so simple – people just need to step back from their daily lives, the political circus for a few moments to think for themselves. If they can achieve that, who knows. I wouldn’t be surprised if Gabbard does well.

You don’t understand, Americans cannot vote for Presidential candidates only the persons appointed by the states to the electoral college can vote for the president and the vice president; President and VP are Article II persons.. The congress persons (Article I persons) are elected by a some what of a popular vote. Each American voting in the USA held elections is entitled to three votes ( two votes out of 100 senators elects two senators from the voters’ own state, and one vote elects a person from the voters district to membership (this 1 out 425) in the House of Representatives)).

America is a democracy, the USA is a Republic.. Only candidates acceptable to and supported by the two political parties that control access and entry into the Republic find there way to the Congressional ballet <=presented on election day for voters to select and vote for a person to be seated in the USA Senate and House. No part of the USA presidency is elected by the everyday people, that is an electoral college election, even though Americans are duped into voting and a big fan fare is made over that election.. .. what counts is the vote of the state appointed electoral college.

The last chance you refer to “No capitation or other direct tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken” <= (Overridden by the 16th Amendment proposed on July 12, 1909 and ratified on February 3, 1913.. ) The USA sold Americans into bondage to global interest and private enterprise on that date.

These two changes made it possible for the bankers and their corporations in Europe and the USA to conduct WWI for the purpose of denying Germany a place among powerful nations, and for taking out the Ottoman Empire so that oil and gas corporations in France, England and USA could take the Ottoman oil.

The Federal Reserve Act set up a global banking operation and the income tax against American Citizens and Corporations provided the collateral the bankers needed to lend to the industries and warriors supporting those who were conducting their war in Europe.

Excellent – but to make it even more succinct – The US is NOT a democracy.

The population does NOT elect its government democratically.

If it was there would be a equal link between population numbers and its representatives across the country and there is NOT.

The fptp system of the UK parliament is way more democratic. At least the constituencies have roughly equal numbers of population.
( i know it isn’t perfect and could be better).

Having HRC in a leading role again is not a comforting image. It could, however, be used to advantage if this horrible event did indeed happen. We are all less timid than 20 years ago to throw the truth in her face.

For that we need accountants. She used to say ‘Assad must go’ – now how much in $$ terms did her removal attempts cost the American taxpayer??? Is Conoco reimbursing the Pentagon for the costs of the soldiers who guard oil fields? Or is Exxon, Mobil, Chevron???

Hillary can pursue all kinds of aggressive policies – but she needs underlings to do her dirty work.
