The Ace of U.S. Hearts
By Steven Storm /

The “eye for an eye” skewed focus of Empirical “Politricks” and the beloved parishioners of the Westernized jingoist propensity to embrace the “‘Fukk’ me? No — ‘Fukk’ YOU!” internal and external Doctrine of Indigence is the swan song of Humanity’s decapitated breed. Today, as in yesteryear, the posterity of American Exceptionalism are fed visual lies for their famished retinals by sycophantic news agencies and infirmly archaic servants, both elected and selected, who are feverishly contrary to seeing the course of change realized in mass multiplication. Servants of the American Empire serve the interests of the Empire — and peace does not appear to be in the interest of National Security.

Not yesterday. Not today. And as of this moment, not tomorrow either.

The Empire may have no clothes, but the Statue of Liberty is armed all the way up to its forked tongue of manipulation and razor blade teeth of vitriolic dissension inspiration with laser guided eyes affixed upon the allure of bombs and a drone-mind controlled by vacuous leaders unfit to be so defined as they stand above the crowds.

Securing divisions at home amid the Colonial bred as well as Indigenous tribes, and even abroad represents the perpetual motion of good old fashioned American Peace. Talking about peace is profitable for the illusory voting cycle. But war… warfare is where the profits really soar. War is where Wall St. smiles and the corporate elites toast to the pocket politicians with glasses filled by the life essence of an obedient unquestioning populace. The very same policies regarding the Indigenous of the Northern Hemisphere are living today as the following contrast illustrates.

John H. Oberly, Commissioner, The Secretary of the interior – 1889:

“…for the degrading communism of the tribal-reservation system gives to the individual no incentive to labor, but puts a premium upon idleness and makes it fashionable. under this system, the laziest man owns as much as the most industrious man, and neither can say of all the acres occupied by the tribe, ‘This is mine.’ The Indian must…be taken out of the reservation…And he must be imbued with the exalting egotism of American civilization, so that he will say ‘I’ instead of ‘We’, and “This is mine,’ instead of ‘This is ours.’ But if he will not learn! If he shall continue to persist in saying, ‘I am content; let me alone!’ Then the Guardian must act for the Ward, and do for him the good service he protests shall not be done–the good service that he denounces as a bad service. The Government must then, in duty to the public, compel the Indian to come out of his isolation into the civilized way that he does not desire to enter–into citizenship–into assimilation with the masses of the Republic–into the path of national duty…”

The modern context of the above cannot be denied as is evidenced in the following two examples:

A 1999 study confirmed – ‘Study Finds TV Alters Fiji Girls’ View of Body’. Additionally, as Benjamin Netanyahu stated in testimony one day and one year post 9-11 before the 107th Congress House Hearing — the strategy of division born of media marketing breeding desire for the inanimate is an effective tool to sever the youth from culture.

“Iran has…250,000 satellite dishes. It has Internet use. I once said to the heads of the CIA…if you want to advance regime change in Iran, you do not have to go through the CIA cloak-and-dagger stuff…just beam Melrose Place and Beverly Hills 90210…That is subversive stuff. The young kids watch it, the young people. They want to have the same nice clothes and houses and swimming pools and so on.”

We are the Revolution, the Evolution, the saving force we have been waiting for. But we have to start within ourselves, and among ourselves, to reach those outside of our physical and spiritual planes of existence. We have to embrace our own inherent trauma. Not to become traumatic, but to grant ourselves the space for forgiveness and appreciation of the beauty of our own imperfections as we arise each day to face and foster afresh the conditions for Humanity to rise.

Can you see, before striking our neighbors, our Brothers and Sisters, our Mother – the World doesn’t hate the American dream for its freedom? The world is ill—where we are programmed to be blind—imminently terminally so, with reaping the nightmare of death and destruction by the still hearts of those who so callously bleed the Earth its inhabitants for conquest and resources under the banner of Star “strangled” Red, White, and Blue.

Dispelling the eye for an eye Ideology is not an extension to say this system of malevolence is not fit for reducing to rubble. Indeed, sending the message of this Empire’s demise up in smoke signals would be an aromatic sweetness to the World — at home, and abroad. That World I speak of being the living sustenance for the beast of Consumerist exploitation.

But are we ready? Are we responsible enough to admit our own culpability? Our own embracing of the deceptions instilled from youth? Our own love for externally centered appearance of material wealth for which we are burdened with idolizing and casting hatred upon the living for?

Until the day we drop the People’s gavel on our seat of ill-begotten Justice, we will take back what we can. One step at a time. One day at a time. However imperfectly we can. Before the eyes of all, we will take back what we can.

The whole world is watching.

Though the streams may run a metaphorical red, amassing a seemingly unending tide of brutality against us — we were not fashioned in the flames of these times to not rise above and foster the birth of Humanity rising. The Indigenous rising is not coming. The Indigenous rising is here and now. It’s you and I as accomplices upon the course of extricating Liberation from the path of human subjugation that shall never be again.

It is disheartening right now in so many ways, but the truth is blossoming in many other ways. Justice cannot hide forever because Truth is a light darkness can only seek to enshroud.

Stay strong. Stay steady.

It’s easy to allow the doubts to wind themselves divisively into our minds.

Keep the focus.

Keep the fire alive.
