Man is coward. He is.
The man who chooses to not stand against war chooses to stand for nothing and is the vilest coward of all mankind. He is the sociopath that plagues the zeitgeist.

He is the hate.
He hates humankind for the Truth of humankind.
He is below the Neanderthal.
Caring not for the undead, he doesn’t deserve to kiss the dirt upon which the hypothetical zombie walks.
He’s never surpassed the machine of the flesh.
Is he even Man?

Monday evening, Texas A&M at Qatar associate professor Todd Kent noted that it will likely not be a political issue for the Adminsitration because the mainstream media is downplaying it, though criminal justice is a large part of the president’s avatar, at Al Jazeera English’s “Inside Story”—which focused on the coming so-called ‘trial’ (23:41):

Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Mises Institute President Lew Rockwell, Jr., earlier today, discussed the connection between the U.S. government’s war and monetary policy with Judge Andrew Napolitano on his FOX Business Network program, “Freedom Watch.” Dr. Paul notes that consent is manufactured for the Fed because it’s tyranny is necessary for the Republicans’ war fetish and Democrats’ welfare illusion.
