Pork, Fake Pork, Hogwash and the Politically Powerful

Parole Officer on Earth in Elysium

The purpose of life is to live, for the individual and the family.  That depends upon Feeding and Breeding, neither of which is much good without bringing home the bacon as in Pork. 
Pork is some concrete benefit to the voter’s district, job, family, and community.  Pork is honest, something useful in the cultural survivability strategy from Food & Family by Roles to Nurture and Protect, in accordance with Rules regarding Social Status and Tools to make it happen, leading back to dinner and a date, feeding and breeding, or not.  There is a direct link between survival and the pork.  Pork is honest.  The question is, always, whose pork is this? And where’s the Pork?

Absent real pork, the resources of the policy, tribe, or chamber of commerce eventually cannot sustain the numbers and die off, or dissipate.  It takes, a critical mass, not the uniform efforts of the polity to sustain the numbers.  The Simba and the Stallion have exclusive fornication rights in their pride or herd. The lone stallion of legend is an outsider.  Humans provide an alternate method of gaining political dominance, food, and sex.


The Roles, Rules and Tools:
The biologically driven roles of survival goes to the XX/XY exchange of precious bodily fluids giving rise to the Children who must be Nurtured and Protected.  Psychologically this works out to three favorite roles played by people both sick and healthy, that of Rescuing and Protecting the Victim.  People get off playing one or more of these roles, regardless of if Pork is involved.  All is necessary to activate the trilogy is the appearance or creation of the Villain (real, fake, hogwash) in order to activate the fears and ambitions of the Victim, Rescuer, and/or Protector.


Precious body fluids…Dr Stranglove.

Villains, in fact, are someone else’s trilogy of nurture and protect their young.  Except we invoke nasty motives to activate the survival instincts of the innocent.

Pork Technical definitions:

2.       Hogwash favors someone else’s Pork.  Anti-fracking, drilling and oil exploration favors Russian E&P. 

3.       Fake Pork denies Pork for others, without a pork payback.  Anti-immigration policies deny pork to immigrants without pork for the locals.  It is a zero-sum game in which someone gains if someone else loses.  Like at the dinner table. 

4.       Make believe pork is Fake Pork without a real winner or loser.  No food, no dinner table.  The present convulsions of the Islamacate* world of Islamdom in violent extremism is fake pork, as is most of the Western response.  Oil is Pork.


* All of these are normal reactions in the quest to nurture and protect the family and community.  In the Animal Kingdom, the selection and control of what female gets the Y (XY) chromosome from the male to enhance the survivability of the female’s progeny.  The males’ priority protective strategy of his Y goes to denial of any other’s Y into his harem.  


In-breeding and Adultery
Adultery is nature’s way to prevent in-breeding with both male and female seeking to enrich the blood line.  Fake Pork is the other males and female need to prevent such cross breeding which may alter the balance of power in the tribe.  Fake Pork and Hogwash have important roles in the Psychological Role, Sociological Rules, and Technological Tools to make up the survival culture of the polity, tribe, family or battalion.  Thus the biological basis for troubling times, stresses, and bloody war is a necessary part of preventing in-breeding. And for breeding healthy offspring. 

Stamp Collecting in Drama
At present, the public mind is consumed with the introduction of a New Villain to replace the Red Menace, and that is “Islamic Extremism”.  The Red menace was set on stealing the Pork and running the polity, while Islamic Extremism is merely to create the illusion that the Pork will walk away.  The biggest fool in this tragedy is the Islamic extremist or terrorist is that there is no pork in the equation for the Umma. Only fake pork and hogwash.


Consider the role of the protection of XX/XY swap of precious bodily fluids in Islamdom in the veil and robes found in many Islamicate* societies is a collective women’s fake pork effort to keep out the competition.  Or maybe an elaborate hogwash.

*Islamacate is the term used by Daniel Pipes to distinguish between a society that in part runs on Islamic rules and regulations, and in part with other influences to mollify and adapt where Islam lacks the necessary flexibility and profit.
The Qur'an and the Hadith Reports nowhere prescribe mosque decorations or attitudes toward rulers, yet these did typically resemble each other across Islamdom. Lacking a term for what is characteristic of the Muslim experience but not required by the Islamic faith or law, Marshall G. S. Hodgson coined the term "Islamicate."
At the time of this writing there is a mass movement underway to keep the US free of the Sharia XY chromosome as if by insidious inclusion, the republic would convert to Islam, instead of the default Protestant mindset.  This Protestant mindset, so closely tied to the greatness of America, has always felt threatened by foreign religious XY or XX chromosomes such as Catholicism. It wasn’t until a Soviet sniper sainted JFK with a bullet that the furor over Papist influence in America dissipated.
That’s how serious it gets,

Hogwash, Washing Someone Else’s Pork
By way of contrast, Hogwash is washing someone else’s pork which leverages the roles of rescuer, victim, protector vs villainy, even when there is no pork benefit from the Hogwash.   Sometimes hogwash is often bullshit. 
Communist Activists in Action
By way of example in the current political imbroglio starting with the Democrats (liberals, progressives) with their demands for student loan deferments, schooling and medical care for the less fortunate constitute pork for the less fortunate, but hogwash for the affluent advocates seeking to play rescuer and protector to the stupid and unwashed. 

The latter Democratic Hogwash campaigns against fracking, offshore drilling, nuclear power and the Polar Ice Melt are camouflage for someone else’s pork, which is to say the Russian Energy and Defense Industries.  Long standing linkages back to the days of the Comintern of the Thirties theoretically in line with Communist World Conquest, but now are acting in the corporate interests of Gasprom, Lukoil and  Uralvagonzavod. 

The flap over depleted uranium rounds in Leftish Academia after Russian built tanks were shredded by uranium depleted rounds from relatively small cannon. 

Inverse Attribution.
What simplifies the confusion is the application of the Law of the Inverse Attribution Reflex (LIAR). Inverse Attribution (Bragging & Blaming).

Accusations by the Left of Corporate Greed, Wall Street Avarice and Capitalist Excess fall under the category of inverse attribution (blaming with one’s strongest vice) as greed, avarice and excess are inherent in the offensive nature of the defense of pork.   Likewise, the Right’s accusation of the Liberal’s Class Warfare, is an example of the Right’s War against the “welfare cheat” and losers, and in favor of the protection of wealthy welfare (tax breaks, contracts, etc).

Before there was a Buchanan, or a Trump, there were the isolationists and the elite culminating in WW 2 and the Cold War.  Well illustrated in the movie, the Good Shepherd

As Matt Damon put in in The Good Shepherd “The rest of you just visiting” in response to Joe Pesci’s comment concerning what Jews, Blacks, Catholics, and Italians had in their cultures, asking what did “youse guys have”

“The United States of America.  The rest of you are just visiting”
Matt Damon in the Good Shepherd

 Not long after “Mother” left the agency, the collective repression and control of the normal irrepressible American spirit, failed and the demons of chaos, revolution, and psychedelic tie died non conformity were let slip resulting in the first major defeat of US forces in war.  That was the Pork of the Sixties and Seventies, hogwash and fake pork. 

Great music, terrible clothes, and the counter counter-revolutionary restriction of the law enforcement capabilities of the nation were trimmed to protect future treasonous endeavors of the pro-Soviet kind.   Communism has now morphed into Russian imperial capitalism and the Celestial Empire of China have been restored to what was before the age of Steam powered ships. 

Inversely Constitutional
The Conservative side  of the political scramble this current election cycle is heavy into hogwash with links to pork not so clear.  Save to sanctify in protect the top one percent. Certain themes made by alleged Conservative punditry, if taken seriously, would call for the violent overthrow of the Constitution to be replaced by a designated dictator subject of back room manipulation.   These are some of the popular arguments:

1.       Courts are supposed to interpret the law, not make it. Since the Anglo-American legal and political systems are based on precedent, case law, and the Common Law which cases go back before the Magna Carta.  The term is “stare decisis”, let the decision stand, all cases with same facts and law should be treated the same.  

2.       Judicial Review is not in the Constitution despite Case Law going back to Marbury vs Madison in 1803.  Statutory law generally over rides case law except when the case law involves a Constitutional precedent such as due process of law, or when the law is arbitrary and capricious.

3.       The Founders were Demi-Gods whose godly pronouncements have been blasphemed by all Amendments after the 12th (The loser in Presidential Elections would not be VP). In fact, the Founders were brilliant and practical men who had just defeated one of the largest empires in the world, and knew the tragic history of abuses and misuses of political power as evidenced during the course of English history, particularly from the Tudors to the Stuarts with the English Civil Wars in between.

4.       Congress is irremediably corrupt, and should be purged of the politically correct. The essence of a republican form of government (guaranteed in the Constitution) is a legislature.  Anglo-American political systems are built around protecting the legislative function, Federal and State. This goes back to Queen Elizabeth’s barring the bishops during consideration of the Book of Common Prayer, and Cromwell’s purge of Parliament in 1648.

5.       The poor, displaced and unfortunate are a clear and present danger to the successful “doers”.  Denial of basic services is in the best interests of keeping the poor in their places. As in the past, some frustrated lawyer will rise up and arouse the “masses” as they ineptly describe those down on their luck.

What is difficult in the case of Conservative Right Wing propaganda is the nature of the Pork of interest to the Right.   In part, the war over Pork is treated as a zero sum game, someone else’s loss is automatically your gain.  It is difficult, however, to see how a collapse of civil and criminal law benefits the Conservative base.  In short, the four points of how to do a coup should not be taken seriously, as such a coup would destroy the one percent even if the downtrodden stayed in their place.

The Geography Japan, Britain, and the US have idyllic geographical circumstances, the rest of the world usually have borders that can be crossed in force.  Present technology does not provide anyone else the avenues of approach to the US and its key terrain to present a credible invasion threat.


 Regardless of any terrain or population objective, the defense of the US is defined in law as the defense of the Constitution which can be revised only by three quarters of the State legislatures concurring.  This the geographic control of all but thirteen states (one quarter), frustrates any attempt domestic or foreign to overthrow the United States.

Not long ago, we thought that Global Thermonuclear Warfare was an existential threat to the US.  As such the radioactive remains of our enemies would still have to negotiate the formidable geography of the US.     A rule of thumb based on the last full mobilization of the US in WW2 is that ten percent of the total population wing up in uniform and another forty percent are in defense production.  Right now that would 32,000,000 in uniform using the same factors.  And doable in four years.

The important pork is here, with additional pork necessary to sustain our pork by way of trade. Hence the defense of the nation involves pork export and import capabilities by sea and air, plus whatever land forces are necessary overseas to hold and defend the necessary facilities and locations.  

The Gini Index - Who’s Got the Pork?

The Gini Index measures income inequalities with a simple set of numbers and graphs.  It comes as no big surprise that income inequalities have skyrocketed in the last few decades.  Of revolutionary importance, is the poor people don’t revolt, it is the recently disposed that do.  This was the case of the French after Louis XVI impoverished the nation by supporting the US revolution, plus the failure of the wheat crops.  And in Russia during WW 1, the Russians had been improving their economy after the fashion of Western Europe and the US, but it failed due to incompetent leadership, resulted in more incompetence under the Bolsheviks who denounced free markets and human ingenuity. 


Where’s the Pork?
