John Brummett: Character Assassin for the Establishment

Jeannie Burlsworth: Peasant Steps Out of Line, Becomes Brummett's Latest Target.

John Brummett serves the role of Character Assassin for the establishment (a fancy word for "the powers that be"). If a Jim Holt on the right suggests doing things outside the lines, we can count on Brummett to say ugly things about him. Should a Bill Halter on the left buck the establishment by running against Blanche Lincoln, we can count on Brummett to say ugly things about him. It does not matter what side of the political spectrum one is on. What matters is that if they are a challenge to the powers that be, Brummett will be there to use his bully pulpit to, well, bully them.

I have often said that the insiders of the Republican and Democratic parties get along with each other a lot better than they do with the outsiders in their own parties. Ultimately, as we saw with the bailouts, they are paid for and work for many of the same people. Its the outsiders, who suggest altering a corrupt system, that draw the ire of the powers that be. This is so whether the philosophy behind that alteration is inspired by leftist or rightist ideals.

So when the good 'ole boys who run things get irritated by someone challenging the status quo, they hire guys like Brummett to show the Rest of Us what can happen when one of the common folk gets too uppity. Your mental stability is questioned in print, where all your neighbors and clients and everybody can read it. And you get no opportunity to retaliate or present your side of it, because Brummett is the guy backed by the establishment who gets to send his bullets out in 200,000 newspapers a day. Its one of the reason things don't change around here even though many are dissatisfied.

Here is an audio where I talk with Burlsworth. Don't just take the Hit Man's word for it, or mine. Decide for yourself how she sounds.

"If there is a central theme in Burlsworth’s scatter-shooting oratory, it would seem to be that American politicians at all levels and off all stripes, even Republicans in many cases, are conspiring to sell out our individual American liberties to sinister one-world control.

Brummett's March 16 article was as scattered as anything I have ever heard Burlsworth say. And despite Brummett's load language, the central theme is essentially correct. There are a lot of people out to rob us of our liberty- in this and every age. That is why it has been said that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

Men like Brummett, paid to pooh-pooh the warnings of the vigilant until it is too late to stop the threats, are enemies of your freedom. Did most Americans want the globalization of labor force known as amnesty for illegal aliens? No! Then why do "leaders" from both DC based political gangs keep trying to ram it down our throat? Did most Americans want the Wall Street and international banks bailed out with our debt? Then why did it happen anyway? Do Americans want to use our military to nation build in every mud hole on earth under UN directives? Then why do we have it anyway? Do Americans want a tax policy that actually pays for a global corporation to dismantle its manufacturing facility in the US and ship it to Mexico? Then why do we have it anyway? Do Americans want a trade policy that is cobbled together by special interests like our tax code and is as complicated as our tax code? Then why do we have it anyway?

The pattern is exceedingly clear, you would have to be as willfully blind as a shill like Brummett to not see it. America has mass media that is globally owned and political parties that are controlled by people who have an interest in advancing global government. That is why on illegal immigration, bailouts, and nation building, and trade and tax policy, it simply does not matter what the American people want. The globalists are getting their way on all these issues and any other issue they really want.

When Burlsworth noted that AG Dustin McDaniel has a seat at one organization promoting a globalist agenda (the ASPEN institute which spent over $15,000 feting McDaniel around to various places) Brummett tried to dismiss the whole thing....

This Aspen Institute is one of those self-important think tanks depleting foundation money, which has to go somewhere, on conferences and retreats and the gifted higher thinking amid rarefied air of a more sophisticated class.

I know Dustin McDaniel. He went to the Aspen Institute because it made him feel like a hot-shot and was a resume enhancer. ,

Again, Brummett does every thing he can to make it seem like patriots like Burlsworth are dingy for warning people about groups with global agendas. But it is undeniable that ASPEN Institute for the Humanities is just such a group. And the people that run that thing are not a bunch of field hippies. Former Secretaries of State and Defense populate the list. The thing is chock full of powerful people. They are people who are interested in getting ambitious state politicians to move in certain directions more friendly to global interests.

The same is true of the other group Burlsworth describes and Brummett dismisses- ICLEI.

Burlsworth sees this ICLEI as a vital cog in an international conspiracy to fabricate a global-warming scare through which politicians worldwide, led by Patrick Henry Hays of North Little Rock, Ark., will avail themselves of this coded phrase, sustainable growth, to take over our free and independent country.

Man made global warming is a hoax supported by statists the world over because it gives them moral permission to get more money and power over the rest of us. If a Mayor in N. Little Rock is on the board of a group that is working to spread the hoax, we need to know about it.

Their own website says “Our campaigns, programs, and projects promote Local Agenda 21 as a participatory, long-term, strategic planning process that addresses local sustainability while protecting global common goods. Linking local action to internationally agreed upon goals and targets such as Agenda 21, the Rio Conventions, the Habitat Agenda, the Millennium Development Goals and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation is an essential component.”

Globalist all the way. Google Agenda 21 sometime. It eviscerates private property rights.

I could pick Brummett's writing apart some more, but it is for the most part too tedious to waste your time with. I will instead return to principle. The principle here is that Burlsworth is warning you of efforts from groups which, if brought to their desired ends, will deprive you of even more of your freedom. Brummett dismisses her as a quack or worse and advises you to roll back over and go to sleep- these groups are nothing to worry about. Just silly think tanks, even if the membership list of the one reads like a whos-who of Washington insiders.

You must decide for yourself which of these two people- Brummett or Burlsworth, is really looking out for your interests. To help you in your choice, I give you the famous quote about warnings from the magnificent GK Chesterton....

The wisest thing in the world is to cry out before you are hurt. It is no good to cry out after you are hurt; especially after you are mortally hurt. People talk about the impatience of the populace; but sound historians know that most tyrannies have been possible because men moved too late. It is often essential to resist a tyranny before it exists. It is no answer to say, with a distant optimism, that the scheme is only in the air. A blow from a hatchet can only be parried while it is in the air.

In other words, Brummett needs a drool bucket for both sides of his pie hole(the Big Govment R side and the just as enormous Big Govment D side).

Question is which bucket needs to be bigger?
