Doom Is A Government Department - 3

I want my left eye back
I. Introduction

In the first and second posts of this series an Executive Order ("EO") was discussed.

That EO had to do with the seizure of property and/or person by the U.S. government.

In the previous post I wrote: "That order gives his cabinet members the right to seize any U.S. property or the labor of any U.S. citizen to be used in government service, with or without payment, to enhance national security."

Doom is what the EO seeks to avoid, using the wealth, sweat, and anything else that the populace may have.

Evidently, the Epigovernment can't avoid doom without us.

II. So Where Does The Doom Come From?

Some have failed to notice that the greatest doom always comes from the greatest threat (let's call that threat "it").

The exercise, then, is to identify the greatest threat, "it", before going out into the populace to grab everyone and everything to be used to fight "it" and thereby avoid doom.

III. "It" Is A Shape Shifter

This "it" thingy is slick as hell, and everywhere at once, it would seem.

During the drug war, before 9/11, "it" had one form, marijuana, dreamy weamy, and abortion pills.

Then suddenly "it" became the twin (or triplet) towers demolishers ("those who are not with us") who were mostly from Saudi Arabia.

But, "those who are not with us" were so dangerous and wiley that the United Nations
"I'll bring Clapper's littlest lie this time"
could not figure "it" out.

Even with Colin Powell's exquisite exposure of the irrefutable evidence for Iraqi weapons of mass destruction as the "it."

So, being all exceptional and stuff we had to figure "it" out for the U.N., we being "it" experts and all.

So, invade Afghanistan and Iraq we must, because those wily wascals are sneaky snakes, and could be anywhere large deposits of oil and other resources are located in the many lands of "those who are not with us":
"Anything, they thought, was possible, given a nation shocked and terrified by the apocalyptic vision of those towers coming down, even if the damage had
Next comes Mission Unaccomplished
been done by just 19 hijackers armed with box cutters who belonged to a terror organization capable, at best, of mounting major operations every year or two. "[B]arely five hours after American Airlines Flight 77 plowed into the Pentagon... [Secretary of Defense Donald] Rumsfeld was telling his aides to come up with plans for striking Iraq," CBS News reported, even though he was already certain that al-Qaeda had launched the attack, not Saddam Hussein. ("'Go massive,' the notes quote him as saying. 'Sweep it all up. Things related and not.'")"
(Tom Dispatch, Six Americans Who Prove). Some three months later we declared that the mission was 'accomplished."

However, we declared "it" to the world before we realized that "those who are not with us" were such wiley wascals, such shape shifters, that we must stay and unaccomplish that accomplished mission.

That was the only way to throw them off track lest they discover "it" and hide all of itdom from us, perhaps, to even hide "it" in the White House with the tap dancer in chief.

We meant well, but we never found "it" because for some reason, "those who are not with us" evidently moved "it" into another country with lots of oil (clue: could it be Iran?).

After throwing us off the trail, so that we never found where they hid "it", and after "those who are not with us" years later hurled Obola at us (Obola: Art Thou Dying Properly?), finally we pivoted to the greatest "it" of all time.

IV. "It" Is Now Global

In a surge of declassification, the President has now declared what the greatest threat to our national security, "the threat", yes, "the Mother of all it", really is.

It is not "those who are not with us", or Iran, or anything of the nature of inflated, imagined terrorism.

"It" is climate change:
I’ve heard some folks try to dodge the evidence by saying they’re not scientists; that we don’t have enough information to act. Well, I’m not a scientist, either. But you know what – I know a lot of really good scientists at NASA, and NOAA, and at our major universities. The best scientists in the world are all telling us that our activities are changing the climate, and if we do not act forcefully, we’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods, and massive disruptions that can trigger greater migration, conflict, and hunger around the globe. The Pentagon says that climate change poses immediate risks to our national security. We should act like it.
(PBS, emphasis added). "It" could even impact our TV viewing pleasure "more than expected."

V. Release Agent Pogo From Gitmo!

Since Comedy Central has also declared that Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show, we need someone else like Pogo to replace him.

So, why not release Agent "we have met the enemy and 'it' is us" Pogo from Gitmo?

The new religious war over "it" is now looking to be a better episode than "Colin Powell Does The UN", which was a doozy.

Senator Nope takes out Colin "It R Us" Powell to attain first place in "we are our enemy" status.

VI. Pope Francis v. Nope Jimmy

The Pope is in accord with the president, the consensus of scientists, and the Pentagon, while denialist Senator Jimmy "Nope" Inhofe (R-Bullshitistan) is in religious rebellion to all that.

Senator Nope, fresh from taking a snort of Ayn Rand's Nopium, says:
More specifically, I want to focus on those beliefs that "God is doing the climate change if there is any, because human civilization is not capable of doing anything that could change the climate" (Ergo Anthropogenic Deigenic climate change).

Let's use the religious beliefs of two human public figures, Pope Francis and Senator Inhofe, to get the criticism in gear.

Pope Francis is of the faith that anthropogenic climate change is the reality, and that endangering and harming humanity by damaging the Earth is sin (Message of Science & Religion - Western - 2).

Senator Inhofe thinks the Pope is arrogant to have the faith that people could damage the Earth's climate ("the arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate").
(Weekend Rebel Science Excursion - 39). Thus, the stage is now fully set for the next "war on ______", but first we must fill in the blanks.

VII. Conclusion: The Climate Wars

This is a case where "those who are not with us" could be God, according to the religious tenet of Nope.

What next, a declaration of war or an AUMF against the favorite being of the religious people of the world?

Crucify God because of what Nope says God is doing with the climate, which is a real and present dangerous "it" to our national security?

Who will win the Nope trial (Upcoming UN Lawsuit: The Monkey Trial II)?

Will God have to go to Gitmo?

Either way, doom is a government department (Will We Destroy Food - The Bees? - 2).

  1. This is one Noper's Nopium rhetoric:

    "How, then, should a Christian view climate change? We should view it skeptically and critically, but at the same time honestly and respectfully. Most importantly, though, Christians should look at climate change biblically. What does the Bible say about climate change? Not much. Likely the closest biblical examples of what could be considered climate change would be the end times disasters prophesied in Revelation 6–18. Yet these prophecies have nothing to do with greenhouse gas emissions; rather, they are the result of the wrath of God, pouring out justice on an increasingly wicked world. Also, a Christian must remember that God is in control and that this world is not our home. God will one day erase this current universe (2 Peter 3:7-12) and replace it with the New Heavens and New Earth (Revelation 21–22). How much effort should be made "saving" a planet that God is eventually going to obliterate and replace with a planet so amazing and wonderful that the current earth pales in comparison?"


    1. The focus of the post was to contrast religious views.

      That quote is by a person who sees God as a destroyer:

      "Likely the closest biblical examples of what could be considered climate change would be the end times disasters prophesied in Revelation 6–18. Yet these prophecies have nothing to do with greenhouse gas emissions; rather, they are the result of the wrath of God, pouring out justice on an increasingly wicked world. Also, a Christian must remember that God is in control and that this world is not our home."

      The Pope presents quite a different view it would seem.

  2. Pope Francis offers a different understanding:

    "Pope Francis made the religious case for tackling climate change on Wednesday, calling on his fellow Christians to become “Custodians of Creation” and issuing a dire warning about the potentially catastrophic effects of global climate change.

    Speaking to a massive crowd in Rome, the first Argentinian pope delivered a short address in which he argued that respect for the “beauty of nature and the grandeur of the cosmos” is a Christian value, noting that failure to care for the planet risks apocalyptic consequences.

    “Safeguard Creation,” he said. “Because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us! Never forget this!”

    The pope centered his environmentalist theology around the biblical creation story in the book of Genesis, where God is said to have created the world, declared it “good,” and charged humanity with its care.
    “Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less, is the property of only a few: Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude,” Francis said.

    Francis also said that humanity’s destruction of the planet is a sinful act, likening it to self-idolatry.


    So much for unity.

  3. Pope Francis, like all the ones preceding him, is a charlatan and a grifter - selling some bullshit story and weaseling a position in society where the church has wonderful exemptions about taxes and such, but can continue spewing all that "go forth and multiply" stuff while blessing the troops who go out and murder for their side. Organized religion is horseshit (imho, of course, your mileage may vary).


    1. Look out Tom "they are coming to take us away" (link).

    2. good one Randy!


  4. The irony is exquisite.The pope lamenting the loss of biodiversity and escalating environmental destruction,while one of the main drivers of both is overpopulation.
    The catholic church has done everything it can possibly do to thwart all attempts to address that huge problem.
