Who dishonors and destroys Britain ? That's the question. Aristocracy (large owners, tycoons, inadequate kings), financial Mafia and their Tories party. Poor Yorick...


Cracked parliament, cocained prime minister... OMG, who rules the waves ?...

By Alexey Ivanov, newspaper Zavtra; 05.12.21

Numerous traces of cocaine have been found in the historic building of Westminster Palace (where the British Parliament meets) and the nearby ultra-modern Portcallis House (where parliamentary offices are located).

The Times, Daily Mail and The Week write about it.

The investigation was initiated by Sir Lindsay Harvey Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons. Twelve toilets were inspected, accessible only to people with parliamentary passes. The remains of the drug were found in eleven of them. 11 out of 12, not bad. Considering the fact that the premises are regularly cleaned.

In particular, coke was found in toilets near the private offices of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Interior Minister Priti Sushil Patel (born into a family of immigrants from Uganda, until recently she was vice-chairman of the influential lobbying group "Conservative Friends of Israel"), Minister of Digitalization, culture, media and sports Nadine Vanessa Dorris (former reality TV star, who until 15.09.2021 was the British Deputy Minister of Health), a prominent functionary of the opposition Labor Party Nick Thomas-Symonds (shadow minister of international trade, ex-shadow secretary of the Interior, a bright opponent of the aforementioned Johnson, Patel and Dorris).

This is not the first drug scandal associated with Westminster Palace. In June 2019, traces of the same white powder were found in four water closets of the parliament building. In July 2015, Lord John Sewell resigned from his post as Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords after the publication of a video by The Sun newspaper in which he was captured in the company of prostitutes for 200 pounds a night; the video shows how the elderly Lord sniffs cocaine using a rolled-up bill (the newspaper then called the palace "a giant moral cesspool").

About 3 years ago, scientists recorded an increased content of cocaine in the water of the Thames - a control water intake for analysis was made by specialists from King's College London at the sewer outlet of Westminster Palace.

Great Britain has repeatedly been recognized as "the most cocaine country in Europe," Gazeta.ru recalls.

Now, the special attention is focused on the colorful figure of Boris (Borya) Johnson and his extravagant inadequate behavior...

"Traces of cocaine were found in the toilets closest to the private offices of Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Home Secretary," emphasizes The Times.

I tried cocaine at university, but it had no effect on me- that mensh Johnson said in an interview with "GQ". He claimed that in subsequent times he never smelled the powder. Modest POS, it seems...

Voice of Mordor: "Boris's speech about Peppa's pig began to play with new, unexpected colors."

Blogger Philip Maslovsky: "Traces of cocaine have been found all around the office of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson ! British detectives suggest that the Kremlin has decided to find a more effective replacement for the absolutely stupid Novichok weapons of mass destruction in order to crack down on the intellectual elite of the West"...

OMG, you see who rules the waves !....



I was afraid to lose You on this planet...
Can't save my soul - if I forget it...

No other image in my mind,
No other Paradise to find...

Life throws us troubles, me and You,
The chances to survive are few,
And we must learn to live anew...

We wish and dream...
Life isn't cream -- a risky stream...

Liberation Day !!!

Was für eine Freude - die Welt hat die Schlampe Merkel-Ferkel losgeworden! Wie hat sie alle bekommen, diese dumme, käufliche Schikse!

Traurige Tatsache: Jede Nation ist ihrer Herrscher würdig...

Aber doch, Russland hat nie freiwillig auf eigene Faust weder Zaren noch Lenin, Stalin, Breshnew, Gorbatschow, Jeltzin, Putin, Medwedew, Putin wieder (a'la Romanoff) gewählt...

Schande über die abscheulichen, volksfeindlichen Herrscher, Schande über die dummen Völker selbst, die allerhand Müll auf den Thron wählen...

================================================================================================================== BREXIT - a fragile balance...

Many normal people see the way out of havoc in the Socialism with a human face, as Jeremy Corbyn wisely proclaims:

Mr. Corbyn has his sense,

acts to stop the turbulence...

Rich fixate on sole finance,

Country never get a chance...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Again Britain lost her chances for the improved Future for the domestic people, instead of the authoritarian, malicious "elite", so degradation of the state will continue... That's the acute problem with the brainwashed, stupefied population/electorate which has no idea of real Socialism and whose only ideals are Beer-&-Show (that low-grade public is well exploited and manipulated by those in power, villains in fact !)...


American GULAG - where trust and truth have gone extinct.


Prisoners of principle get tortured

By John Kaminski - johnkaminski.org

You don't hear anybody talking seriously about peace anymore. Back in the 1960s all the lefties talked about was peace. Now all the lefties talk about is killing the president. Something really bad has happened to them between then and now. Now, there is no one on the political left who dares to defend the disappearing rights of the ordinary citizen against that ubiquitous foreign power that controls every aspect of our existence.

More people are beginning to notice that America has crossed the line into insanity. U.S. leaders openly murder foreign leaders of much higher moral character than themselves and blithely bomb women and children as a favor to the oil companies. Trust and truth have gone extinct as the fibers that hold civilization together begin to fray and unravel, sure signs of our imminent demise.

What a mess! There is no trustworthy higher authority to appeal to, no competent referee who can wedge the two sides apart and explain what's happening. There are only partisan voices - corrupt mainstream media which have merged with an occupying government always preaching for war. Disorganized peaceniks and other people of principle have no chance against the information drenching of the white noise machine.

We have devolved into a world of secret agents and unsuspecting victims. The freedoms we thought we had, it turns out, were just advertising slogans designed to get you to give up your most cherished information. Just like Facebook.

It is only in a totalitarian tyranny that people get tortured. The saddest part of the Guantanamo prison tragedy is that the movers and shakers in the war against Islam knew all of those prisoners were innocent since the U.S. braintrust created the original Al Qaeda terror corps by recruiting them in the same way that the Antifa thugs in Charlottesville were hired by George Soros to continue and accelerate the social destabilization of the USA.

Nobody can ever lead America again without telling the truth about 9/11. And that will be the end of Jewish dominance.

8th Amendment bites dust

We watched two disturbing demonstrations of our rancid legal system in recent weeks. These were events that in all their maddening betrayal proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the U.S. government can absolutely no longer be trusted by sincere American citizens.

Event No. 1 was the Charlottesville, Virginia city government, which granted access to paid protesters whose aim was to disrupt the gathering for which another permit had been given to the Unite the Right rally. A Craigslist ad appeared to indicate that these protesters had been paid, although some protesters complained they weren't paid but we’re supposed to have been.

Event No. 2 was a jury verdict ridiculing the prosecution of Western ranchers who have been held in solitary confinement for a year and a half for defending their own Constitutional rights.

If the government has proved one thing in its needlessly vindictive harassment (the word torture would not be too strong) of innocent people who only sought relief from an overaggressive and corrupt federal land grab, it is that it will break every law it can to convict innocent people who interfere with the big business deals of powerful politicians.

Nevertheless, even a jury almost handpicked by a corrupt judge could not overlook the preponderance of government slander and absence of government evidence, so it found those charged innocent in the second round of many trials to follow. There is always hope with a jury.

Government-approved crime

Our own government continues to violate its own laws.

And I'm not just talking wars without Congressional approval, I'm talking about the sadistic abuse of its own citizens. It is one of the cruel ironies of history that those American patriots who are most sincere are the ones most likely to be crushed beneath the wheel of a corrupt government, especially one covertly run by a foreign power. God rest Lavoy Finicum's soul.

The 8th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution basically prohibits the use of cruel and unusual punishment. All of the so-called defendants in the two confrontations in the West over government encroachment over rangelands have been victims of prisoner abuse and government malfeasance way beneath the line of minimal judicial standards.

No trust left in America - You can't trust your government. It constantly breaks its own laws that it pretends to enforce.

Otherwise we could arrest Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the premeditated murder of Muammar Qaddafi, perhaps the most decent leader the world has ever known, who created a country in which basically all his citizens lived for free with the cushion of oil revenue shared by everyone.

Not only that, the Libyan colonel tried to raise up those around him by creating a pan-African currency that would have freed the whole continent from the financial slavery imposed upon it by its Western slavemasters.

And most recently we have learned Qaddafi was holding back the tide of African hordes now raging through Libya, across the Mediterranean and all over Europe, fulfilling the Jewish grand strategy of reducing the Western world to the level of Africa in order to more efficiently harvest members of the herd of cattle it regards the rest of the human race to be.

The premeditated annihilation of Syria has had a similar effect. So Obama got his $400 million in an offshore account for helping Israel demolish Europe demographically. The ex-President has remained on the scene to vandalize all future presidencies on behalf of the kosher Deep State he has served so well.

The people who run the government don't work for you; they work for the people who hired them and put them in office to do their dirty work. In the halls of justice, the only justice is in the halls.

- You can't trust your local cop! In fact the profusion of cops killing pets, gunning down innocent people at the wrong address, robbing drivers at gunpoint on I-40 in Tennessee, refusing to investigate the crimes of the rich, and significantly failing to either challenge crimes committed by our government or correct the abuses of people injured unjustly by our government, offer absolutely no avenue of redress except to pay somebody off. If he were a real person, Trump should have pardoned the Bundys and the Hammonds by now.

- You can't trust your neighborhood holy man. All religions exist only to perpetuate themselves and control their adherents. Their survival is always more important than the message they attempt to preach, which delegitimizes their message. It's all about blackmail and control, and with the terrifying power of the emissaries of the Almighty use to threaten people to support a criminal government.

Muslim holy men urge their followers to kill strangers, Jewish holy men conspire in a worldwide plot to rob and kill everyone else, and Christian holy men tell us to turn the other cheek while our country is destroyed.

There's no real leader in the world saying things that are philosophically sound. The vast majority of American politicians want to make war with these two sane men. The American government and these spineless traitors prefer to continue to receive the covert payoffs from worldwide Jewry than act on the principles our Constitution, which at one time guaranteed our individual freedom and independence.

These guarantees are of no concern to our current leaders. Human need and enlightened compassion are not among their considerations.

So who do you turn to for help ?

No avenue of redress means you are in prison.

Society has been fragmented, atomized, emulsified into an amorphous pond of toxic jelly in which we thrash around in pursuit of goals implanted in our brains by people and agencies who do not have our best interests at heart.

We are free-floating electrons bobbing around our neighborhood nucleus engaging in occupations practiced by humans. The family structure that gave such comfort to the world is largely gone now, replaced by a cold, gray, humorless praxis that keeps people at each others throats rather than in their hearts.

The reason things are so screwed up is because Jews control everything, which means honesty and fairness are out the window and exploitation and abuse are everywhere in all segments of the employment spectrum.

Nobody is safe anywhere.

In the new American Gulag, the bleak assessment remains. You don't hear anybody talking about peace anymore. And life becomes nothing but a boring preamble to our deaths, as our government debates who it should bomb next...


Think on Higher Issues


When abusive government fails to protect its own people,
revolution is inevitable

By John Kaminski

We, the ordinary citizens of the United States, have no connection to the government that insists it speaks in our name. The only way we can get its attention is with large amounts of cash, all of which gets stuffed into the pockets of the elected extortionists, and none of which goes to the original purpose of whatever request we have chosen to make.

We ordinary citizens also do not get valid information from our news media, which are corruptly connected to the government they are supposed to be covering objectively. Journalism has always been afflicted by ulterior motives hiding behind a plausible veneer, but never moreso than now, when the world’s news gathering organizations are all controlled by a handful of Jews, and our disintegrating reality is being shaped by their subhuman compulsions. CNN is made in Israel, and so are all the other networks and newspapers.

On both on NBC and NPR, I heard the news readers mention the 6 million lie again as if it was established fact. It is not. The quantification of the Jew scam can be measured by the difference between 6 million and the 271,000-plus the Associated Press reported in 1947. The AP is now owned by the Rothschilds, and you can’t find that information anywhere.

Today, first among the inconvenient stories corporate media ignore is the tragedy of the Bundys and their friends, who stood up for Constitutional justice and have been destroyed by the government and ignored by the public. Truth tellers take note of your probable fate.

The Constitution supposedly guarantees that except in cases of murder, no one can be denied bail. Yet the Bundy entourage, which only tried to spotlight the illegal federal takeover of Western ranchlands, has mostly been held in solitary confinement for more than a year. When four were found innocent despite a rigged trial, the government tased their lawyer and filed new charges to keep them in jail.

And Ammon Bundy, after 13 hours naked in a cramped shower, got two dislocated shoulders. His supporters believe the government is trying to kill him, just like it murdered Lavoy Finicum, an exemplary human being whose truth terrified our criminal government.

Today the drama continues as government deceptions appear to be aimed at dragging out the legal process indefinitely for those patriots still kept in solitary confinement. For Cliven Bundy at 72, incarceration amounts to torture.

And of course for Lavoy Finicum, as honorable an American who has ever lived who was brutally murdered by the FBI, there is no bringing him back to life even as his killers go unpunished.

The thing I had wished happened initially was that during Donald Trump’s long campaign harangue of Hillary Clinton he would have mentioned that it was the $450,000 the Clinton Foundation received for brokering a deal to sell the uranium on the Hammonds’ ranch in Oregon that actually put the Hammond men, father and son, in jail on a trumped up charge from a kangaroo court (aren’t they all?).

A contract they were forced to sign stipulated that when they sell their ranch, it would have to be to the Bureau of Land Management, which is at the center of all this persecution of patriots merely trying to defend their rights as citizens.

But this is typical American justice. And you never hear about it on TV. Much of the real news, especially news embarrassing to the government, never makes it to the evening broadcasts.

So too with Donald Trump, who has handed over America to the Lubavitchers, the most violently deranged among all the twisted Jewish denominations. Like all of his immediate predecessors in the White House, Trump has sold out America to Jewish organisations.

And therein lies a tale of America’s quadrennial insanity. What winning presidential candidate has ever remembered his campaign promises? None. So now Hillary is a nice person instead of one of the great criminals in political history, blamed by scholars for the murders of Vince Foster and Muammar Qaddafi.

Trump won the election because the electorate was convinced Hillary was going to start World War 3 with Russia. And how long did it take for the Deep State to totally disrupt Trump’s plans for peace with Russia? This John McCain-Lindsey Graham insanity has ruled the U.S. since the Gerald Ford administration, Cheney and Rumsfeld, even back then, quintessential employees of the Deep State that rules America and the world.

It took less than 100 days for the Deep State to totally denature Trump’s apparent plans for peace with Russia. Either Trump knew it would happen or he is not as smart as we thought. When he bombed Syria for no valid reason except his Lubavitcher daughter’s crocodile tears, he lost all those voters who voted for him because they thought he WAS smart.

Really, all Trump ever was a really good real estate salesman who had his Rothschild godfathers erasing every mistake he ever made.

Anytime McCain and Graham are happy, humanity has lost another round.

And America is now run by a Lubavitcher couple — the Kushners — heavily in debt to the mob and wholly owned by the worldwide murder machine.

Welcome to your worst nightmare — America, gone bad. We have a government intent on putting us in jail, and we can’t trust anything our government tells us. From the Food and Drag Administration to the Centers for Disease Control — we can’t trust a thing they say.

This is the real Jewish contribution to America — you can’t believe a thing most people say.

When abusive government no longer protects its people, revolution is inevitable.

If only Americans could be roused from their cognitive slumber... ah, but no, there are simply too many people on one kind of government assistance or another, too many preachers with tax-exempt status to protect, and too many high priced executives pulling down big checks for government jobs that shouldn’t really even exist.

Because the USA has lied, cheated and massacred the whole world during the last two centuries, it should have come as no surprise that it would eventually lie, cheat and massacre its own citizens, which it is now doing, especially to those critics who point out all the crimes our government, controlled by a foreign power, continues to commit.

Will the high-ranking perpetrators escape Retribution in the end ???...


A guide to 9/11 LIES

Hijacker issue irrelevant to determining blame

By John Kaminski


Probably because of recent incendiary remarks by presidential candidate Donald Trump about former President George W. Bush’s involvement with 9/11 and the fictitious charges he manufactured to justify his criminal invasion of Iraq, the debate over who was responsible for the destruction of the Twin Towers and the deaths of 3,000 people in New York City has reemerged as a hot topic in mainstream media.

Commentators and politicians are lining up to once again try to implicate Saudi Arabia as the actual perpetrators of the colossal disaster because of their alleged support for the men blamed for piloting jetliners into the World Trade Center.

But the emphasis on the nationality of the so-called hijackers reveals the recent attention given to the subject to be yet another fraud perpetrated by the kosher media moguls trying mightily to cover up the principal role of Israel and Jew traitors in the American government in the greatest crime in American history.

The role of the hijackers in assessing blame for 9/11 is absolutely irrelevant, for the following reasons.

1. The demolition of the Twin Towers was not caused by the impact of airplanes damaging the skyscrapers. The buildings never would have fallen but for explosives in the basement that caused the towers to drop straight down into their own footprints. Find out who planted those explosives and you discover the guilty party. It wasn't Saudis, and it wasn't Osama bin Laden in a cave in Afghanistan.

2. You can't blame the Saudis for financing Saudi terrorists because all of the so-called hijackers possessed false identifications, as evidenced by the fact that at least seven (and possibly nine) of the names attributed to the alleged hijackers were found alive in other countries in the months following the disasters.

Plus, there are substantial doubts that the commandeering of airplanes ever happened, that it was not a charade played by U.S. and Israeli intelligence service, the type of which have become so common (Aurora, Sandy Hook, Boston) ever since that day.

The FBI furnished the exact names of the 19 so-called hijackers within a day and a half of the tragedy, and has managed to arrest no one else (except for three patsies it convicted in kangaroo courts) in the following 15 years.

And then, all of the officials who participated in the greatest failure of security in American history were subsequently promoted.

3. Numerous pilots associations in the U.S. and elsewhere proved conclusively that neophytes who had trouble learning to fly small airplanes could in no way pilot complex passenger airliners, never mind execute the precise maneuvers claimed for the planes that supposedly hit the Towers and the Pentagon.

4. There is no convincing evidence that hijacked jetliners piloted by Islamic terrorists crashed into the Pentagon (requiring a complex maneuver that even expert pilots confess they could not have accomplished) or in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Neither site revealed tangible wreckage that would have indicated the presence of a crashed passenger airliner.

So when you hear somebody talking about the 9/11 hijackers, as mainstream media are doing today, you know they are participating in the coverup, trying to deflect blame from the true culprits, who occupied the highest positions in the U.S. government, the U.S. military, and the Israeli government, and the Wall Street and London banking establishments (remember those options?)

This is not only the conclusion of a majority of 9/11 researchers in the United States, but from scientists and government officials around the world.

In fact, the last people to realize who really did this incomparable crime against humanity are the American people themselves, who to this day remain in a fog of lies concocted by their elected representatives (including the entire crop of current presidential candidates) and the journalists and editors who claim to be telling the truth in their utterly curdled media apparatuses.

So when you hear this current engineered debate about Saudis threatening the United States with financial penalties, it's just hot air to continue to deflect everyone's focus from Israel and the Jewish control of the American government and its lapdog media.

It is no exaggeration to say that all governmental officials and the mainstream media outlets who cover them (and cover up for them) are traitors who have betrayed their oaths of office and the ethical guidelines of the journalistic profession.

Law enforcement agencies, lawyers, judges and other government officials in positions to defend the right of American citizens to know the truth about what their government is doing also have failed the integrity test going on 16 years by participating in the lies and failing to do their duty to protect Americans from the murderous lies of their leaders.

The failure of our government to produce a forthright and accurate account of what happened on September 11, 2001 means that they have forfeited the right to remain in their offices, and should be forthwith removed from office by the people, who must punish these warped misanthropes if they maintain any hope of living authentic lives and protecting the children to whom they hope to deliver an honest future.

The vast enormity of the corruption involved in this operation extends to every city and town in the United States. It has cost the lives of millions of people around the world must be rectified if we ever hope to live in a healthy world.

I realize that the criminals who masquerade as our leaders have gone far beyond the events of 9/11 in committing even more horrendous criminal atrocities since that fateful day.

But all the false flag murders and deliberately scripted terror events explicitly designed to dupe citizens into trusting a pathological government run by a foreign power cannot begin to be solved without an authentic reckoning of the crimes of 9/11, in which the president and his Jewish entourage deliberately murdered 3,000 people in New York City. They have been lying about it ever since.

Their objective is to destroy the United States, and thus far, they are succeeding wildly.

Message from Ammon Bundy

Ammon Bundy, youngest child of Cliven Bundy, just about to turn 18, talks about his dad and four brothers who are all in jail, and lays out what everybody has to do to stop the abuse of the American people by their out-of-control government.


In other news, Jerry DeLemus, Tea Party activist, candidate for Strafford County sheriff, and one of the leaders of the Trump campaign in New Hampshire, was one of those arrested Thursday in connection with the 2014 Bundy standoff.

Feds arrest 12 more for Bundy standoff bringing total to 19


It will be interesting to see what Donald Trump will do that one of his campaign officials has been indicted by federal officials for trying to oppose the totalitarian tactics of the federal government.

A recent quote by Ron Paul furnished by Patricia Aiken after her SacredCowBBQ show Thursday night seems appropriate to these ominous current events.

"It is ironic that the proliferation of guns in the hands of the bureaucrats is pushed by the antigun fanatics who hate the Second Amendment and would disarm every law-abiding American citizen," the Texas Congressman continued. "Yes, we need gun control. We need to disarm our bureaucrats, then abolish the agencies. If government bureaucrats like guns that much, let them seek work with the NRA."

Paul then warned, "Force and intimidation are the tools of tyrants. Intimidation with government guns, the threat of imprisonment, and the fear of harassment by government agents puts fear into the hearts of millions of Americans."


The end of the freedom we have known creeps closer every day...


Evil Rulers are Bringing Us to Annihilation

The mega-financial blowout which is now scheduled immediately after New Years Day promises an almost-instant shutdown of the economies of the US, Western Europe, and most of Central and South America. It will be immeasurably worse than that of 2008 or 1929.

The most recent case which compares with the disaster we face over the coming few days, is Europe's catastrophe of the Fourteenth Century. Then as now, a long-term rotting-out of culture prepared the way for a series of savage, anti-human acts by actually Satanic rulers which suddenly precipitated the collapse of society and mass death. Amidst perpetual warfare, a series of famines early in the century helped to prepare the way for the evil which followed.
In 1344, the Lombard banking houses of the Bardi and Peruzzi declared bankruptcy, whereupon the Venetian banking network closed down the entire economic system of Europe, forcing conditions which further decimated the populations' resistance to disease. The Black Death (bubonic plague) struck in 1347. Its successive waves are estimated to have killed off 60% of Europe's population.

And now, today, in the aftermath of the vast cultural downslide called the Twentieth Century, three Satanic rulers are leading us to our immediate destruction: Queen Elizabeth, Bardack Obama, and Pope Francis.

The Queen-Empress Elizabeth II is a far more knowingly evil figure than her ancestor George III who murdered our patriots over two hundred years ago. She represents the British Empire of the Twentieth Century, of the Lord Bertrand Russell who legislated an end to science and art in favor of dead mathematics. Like Russell, she and her husband advocate worldwide savage population-reduction, by whatever means. That was the not-so-secret agenda of her just-concluded Paris conference on supposed man-made climate change.

The Satanism of Queen Elizabeth and her like is their drive to extinguish the "divine spark" in man, that which makes man "the living image of God." In other words, humanity.

It should make every Catholic ashamed indeed, every Christian that Pope Francis adopted the anti-human credo of the British Empire in his insane, raving so-called Encyclical "Laudato Si'." He has fought for it ever since. Whatever his reasons, he has disqualified himself as Pope, even as a simple priest.

Our so-called President Bardack Obomba is a puppet of this Queen-Empress, controlled by the British Monarchy through Valerie Jarrett, who was the one who tapped him to be President in the first place, when he was an obscure State Senator. It was British-monarchy controlled drug money which gave Obama a crooked victory over popular favorite Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic Primaries. (Unfortunately, Hillary has destroyed all her own qualifications since becoming Obama's puppet after his election.)

Obama was trained to be a mass-murderer by his Indonesian stepfather Lolo Soetoro. Now, every Tuesday, he presides over a White House meeting to decide on a new list of people to murder, including American citizens. The reason that the major press gives him a free pass, such as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, is that they're afraid he'll murder them too. He probably will.

Congressmen share the same, justified, fear, but they have no excuse. The oath they took to the Constitution is a soldier's oath. If they will not immediately remove Obama and shut down Wall Street, they are not real Congressmen at all.

In short, your leaders have sold you out to the Devil. Your Congressmen have sold you out, in the best cases, out of fear. But the solutions which Franklin Roosevelt applied in 1932-33, in a far milder crisis, are still available today. Only a child would talk about the "odds;" obviously the odds are against us. So what??...



American scumbags

Indifferent citizens remain silent while our criminal leaders murder millions, including the best of our own people

By John Kaminski

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

President Barack Obama is fond of telephoning mediocre homosexual athletes and making a big deal of congratulating them for their "courage" at "coming out of the closet", but when it comes to a true American hero, someone who stands up for individual freedom, "for liberty and justice for all" like Lavoy Finicum, who was shot to death in the Oregon snow by smelly government hit men, Obama is nowhere to be found. He probably was out playing golf, or sneaking into some gay bath house in Chicago.

More recently, he might have killed his own Supreme Court justice. We know he has ordered the deaths of many other Americans who had stories to tell that he didn't want told. We live in a system that allows the powerful to commit crimes while imprisoning those of lesser status who have committed no crime at all.

But that's just the prerogatives of power, the perquisites of presidents, in a "civilized" society that has always been foul, rank and unjust.

American scumbags have taken over the country. Everyone in America is at risk, not just from the government but by those who are paid by the government to keep their mouths shut, like those Harney County employees who couldn't say what they really saw or they would have lost their jobs.

American scumbags? No, I'm not talking about our presidential candidates, although I could be. Every one of them is passionate about killing innocent people all over the world, about perpetuating the fiction that the USA is a global force for good (as the Navy ad tries to tell us) when it is really a malevolent menace to all life.

All these so-called candidates, sincerely or not, have swallowed the lies that Arab terrorists in Afghanistan blew up the middle of New York City and that was why it was OK to bomb Iraq back to the Stone Age, even though Iraq had nothing to do with it. And now all of these rich liars, when they can tear themselves away from castigating their opponents, are ready, willing and able to bomb the next country the Jews order them to destroy. "Vote for me," they say. "I'll kill people."

And no, I'm not necessarily talking about our past presidents, either, because every one of them already has been an accessory to mass murder (to put it mildly), and all of them have proven they didn't work for the people who elected them. They devoted their corrupt efforts to the people who put them in power, the Jewish financiers who have bought and sold America over and over again and will continue to until they are rounded up and put in a safe place where they can't harm anybody else.

The safest place, of course, would be a graveyard, but these misanthropes will deserve no markers for their bones when that happens, for the damage they have done and are doing to the world is incalculable.

And alas, we know by now that we will never free ourselves from these pathological parasites as long as Jewish shysters run the White House, Jewish bankers control what's left of our currency, and Jewish perverts hypnotize our defective population with feculence from our TV networks, movie studios and universities.

American presidents are on a par with TV anchorpersons. They can be removed at will by one imprudent innuendo about the Jews who control the world, removed by some shameful scandal or sudden death by heart attack machine.

And you can no longer appeal to the better natures of public officials because, like the cops, they are all owned by Jews and are not in the business of helping you, they only help the cops and the judges and lawyers who are perpetually poised to take your property and your life on the flimsiest pretext, or no pretext at all.

But there is one category of American that you are mostly likely to overlook as the real reason for the disintegration of our "greatest country on Earth", and that reason would be because it's a category you are in.

The people most responsible for the destruction of the USA are the ones who paid their taxes, waved their flags and supported the criminals who have served as our public officials over the last century, the people who supported that covert criminality that has led us to this preposterous situation of our jobs being sent overseas, our money being worthless, and our public officials lying about everything as they work for those who enslave us instead of we ignorant citizens who elected them.

Today we are a nation of reality deniers. Standing out in the street because are homes and our property have been stolen from us, we shrug our shoulders and accede to defeat, whining "there's nothing we can so why worry about it". Many of these pathetic people (who are just like us) will one day lie down in the street and die, whimpering.

As long we continue to take our cues from mainstream media, we are lost. As long as we continue to employ electronic vote counting, we will never have leaders we can trust. As long as we insist on public officials who take their orders from Jewish bankers, unless we turn to crime, we will become penniless, our health will radically deteriorate, and our lives will be drastically shortened.

So far, all we hear from the American masses is one ethnic group blaming another, and the kosher government fanning the flames of this discord in the hope that it will become violent enough to send in the police and the mercenaries, all suitably trained in Israel, to riddle the populace with hollow point bullets and poison gas.

Don't tell me that these things are not your responsibility. It will make me scream at you, "You stupid son of a bitch. You have killed our country."

But then, almost everybody is screaming that nowadays as scapegoating — blaming all our problems on someone else when often we are just as responsible for them as they are — has atomized the population into violently argumentative ethnic groups.

Muslims are our enemies

I am in complete agreement with the bombastic presidential candidate Donald Trump that all Muslims should be banned from entry into the United States. The justification is simple and obvious.

Muslims believe that anybody who does not believe that Allah is the Supreme Being and that Muhammad is his prophet, deserves instant death, preferably by way of a righteous beheading.

This instruction automatically disqualifies Muslims from American citizenship, because they can never adhere to America's finest rule, the very first thing mentioned the U.S. Constitution, which is the guarantee of freedom of religion.

I am an ardent believer in freedom of religion, with the caveat that Judaism is not a real religion, but only the twisted crime scheme of homicidal parasites that has warped and wrecked practically every nation on the planet with its false psychotic pronouncements, which are obviously insane to anyone with a functioning brain.

Islam and Judaism share that xenophobic attitude of murdering all those who refuse to accept their warped disquisitions. Both creeds believe that nonbelievers are not really human and should be killed with all possible speed.

All Muslims now living in America are in violation of that Constitutional protection, and consequently should either be arrested for treason, prosecuted, convicted and executed (treason in time of war is automatically subject to the death penalty, something that applies to Obama and the other presidents, which I shall discuss at a later date) or summarily deported to their pathetic country of origin — their choice.

First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

The fact that our Founding Fathers stipulated that freedom of religion was the first and most important plank of the document that would govern their new country was largely due to the profusion of religious sects that had settled in their new country toward the end of the 18th century.

(The frequent and continuing abridgments of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly and the government's murder of the Freedom of Information Act shall be discussed in a later article.)

Of course, Muslims were not part of the American equation in 1776. The religious spectrum was primarily composed of sundry Christian variations, although a large percentage of the politicians at the time were Deists, who endorsed the idea of a supreme being but not of a divine offspring.

Furthermore, and despite the hypocritical handwringing of politicians and media aspiring to be politically correct, prohibitive presidential favorite Donald Trump's anti-Muslim remarks have already been vindicated by the revelation that a mostly forgotten law prohibits Islamic immigration to the United States.

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, Section 212, chapter 2, prohibits entry into the U.S. by aliens belonging to an organization seeking the unlawful overthrow of the federal government by force, violence or other unconstitutional means.

Islamic immigration is illegal under this law. Why? the Qu'ran, Sharia law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam. For Muslims, this command supersedes allegiance to the U.S. Constitution and as a consequence, makes them ineligible for U.S. citizenship.

Unfortunately, we have a president who has seized the office illegally and very much approves of and is assisting the Islamic overthrow of the U.S. government.

The law states that those applying for entry into the U.S. who are affiliated with any organization that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. <http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=3dd_1449612435#DC20eKGsiWs3qj5i.99>

The Muslim religion is utterly incompatible with the U.S. Constitution and Muslims simply should not be allowed to live in the USA. At least then, the Jew-owned government that constantly conducts all these false flag terror attacks against American citizens could no longer blame these deceptive masquerades on Islamic terrorists.

The grisly example of what is happening today in Europe should serve as an adequate warning that allowing Muslims into the United States will result in total chaos, mass rapes and the destruction of our country.

If Muslims should go, what about the Jews?

Actually, the idea of repatriation of undesirable immigrants has been mostly discussed by whites concerning the blacks and Latinos who have overrun America's social systems and deprived whites of the opportunities and benefits that were rightfully theirs before Jew-controlled politicians open the floodgates to Third World immigration in 1965.

The proof of this theory is aptly demonstrated by the landmark video "Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs" by Roy Beck that can be found at https://www.numbersusa.org and clicking under Immigration Videos.

Regardless of how Vice President Joe Biden rhapsodized about the Jews' positive effect on American life, if you really wanted to kick somebody out of the country that would instantly improve America's health, that group would be the Jews, who like vampires have sucked the blood from the United States and turned it into a near cadaver on life support.

Unfortunately today we have a Jew-run presidential administration working to sabotage the American population, to water it down with African savages and Latin American peasants to create a nation of beggars cravenly dependent on government handouts and devoid of the resourceful gumption necessary to achieving genuine independence and self-sufficiency.

I have always believed that all of the nasty, perverted pronouncements of the so-called Jewish holy book known as the Talmud should be reversed, and that all the terrible sadistic penalties the Jews wish to inflict on non Jews be reversed, and that non-Jews should be encouraged and empowered to inflict on the Jews.

With that in mind I would commend you to consider the rabbi's remarks in this bone chilling tale, titled "Israeli rabbi calls for the execution of all Palestinians" <>

A senior Israeli rabbi says Tel Aviv should execute Palestinians instead of arresting them and leave no one alive in order to establish safety in the occupied Palestinian territories, Palestinian media report.

&#8220;Israeli army has to stop arresting Palestinians,&#8221; Shmuel Eliyahu said in a message posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday, adding, &#8220;but, it must execute them and leave no one alive,&#8221; Palestine News Network reported.

I enthusiastically propose the good rabbi's recommendation be totally reversed and all the non Jews of the world should carry out the rabbi's wish and leave no Jew alive in order to establish a liberating safety throughout the whole world.

Perhaps then Americans could return to the time when they were concerned about their neighbors instead of the Jewish ethic that has been imposed on the population to either rob or rape their neighbors.

Fact is, Jews have turned America into a savage nation utterly without honor whose word cannot be trusted and whose citizens are at grave risk from the pathological criminals who run their so-called government. In all fairness, perhaps the word of America never could be trusted, if its sordid dealings with the native Americans are any indication.

The Jews need to be locked up in one place where they can't be parasites on unsuspecting non Jewish victims and they can prey on themselves until they go extinct.

And what about all these wailing blacks who bite the hand that liberated them, then burn down their own neighborhoods while protesting the deaths of known drug dealers who are shot by the police?

Their claim that "black lives matter" clearly implies that white lives don't, and this widening chasm threatens to destroy America, particularly as more Third Worlders pour into the country at the behest of America's first Negro president.

Blacks want to turn America into Africa

Of course the Jews would like that. In fact, Jews championed all this unrestrained immigration for the very purpose of weakening all the white countries of the world, seeking to replace self-reliant, functioning citizens with mindless drecks totally dependent on a central authority, something blacks have largely been willing to do, judging by generations of them who never have seemed able to escape the welfare rolls.

The Jews want an undereducated barely functioning population that can't perceive the scams exploiting them, and blacks seem ready made for this role.

One thing I've noticed about these righteous black protesters, particularly the uppity rabble rousers on college campuses, is that they are never particularly concerned with the overall welfare of the nation, but only with the free things they can get from the government. They are demanding advantages on top of all the affirmative action benefits they have already received at the expense of increasingly poor white people.

Since America elected a half black president, white people have noticed with extreme resentment at the intrinsic unfairness of the egregiously generous benefits that have been offered to new residents from south of the border and other poor areas of the world. In addition, white people have also noticed that disgruntled blacks seem to really enjoy burning down their own neighborhoods when participating in legitimate social protests. These acts of arson are seldom observed in the social protests of white people.

Then there is the matter of cultures of previous generations. White people came to America from relatively cultured European countries, some of which had gigantic intellectual and material legacies that helped create an American society which the entire world has chosen to emulate.

What cultural traditions did Black people bring to America's melting pot? Blacks came from African jungles on a continent that, with the sole exception of Libya, has yet to produce a productive country that is not controlled by exploitative white financiers, and therefore have not, in recorded history, created a viable culture of their own.

Yet advocates of the "black lives matter" shtick proudly want to impose their retarded culture and rituals on a white country, America, which prospered when white culture and rituals were followed with integrity, and now founders as black nihilism and sloth are promoted by cynical Jewish promoters always seeking to degrade stable societies by drugs, sex and self-destructive anarchy.

Jewish culture promoters encourage jungle behavior as a main method of destabilizing staid but stable white society, in which individual initiative is promoted over a parasitic dependence on social welfare systems.

The discussion about repatriating blacks to their original homelands took place during the time of Abraham Lincoln but never gained wide acceptance, probably because too few rich folks, especially in the North, wanted to give up their slaves. <http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/feb/9/book-lincoln-sought-to-deport-freed-slaves/?page=all>

But this current emphasis on turning America into a multicolored nation is probably the worst thing that ever happened to a republic that when white was idolized by the world, and since adding knife wielding demons from Somalia and God knows who from Syria, it has been profoundly soiled by demonic Jewish influence, it has become the pariah of the world, known today as the killer robots who do the Jews' dirty work all over the globe.

The rest of the world has had enough of whites

Go ask an Indian. He'll tell you white man speak with forked tongue. You can't trust a single thing he says. From Adam in the Garden of Eden to Hillary in the halls of Congress. . . nothing but tall tales. . . and self-serving lies. The white man broke every treaty he ever made with the red man, as America has broken every agreement it ever made with the rest of the world.

According to 80 percent of the world's population which is not white, white nationalism is a fool's mission.

And according to all whites who do not espouse white nationalism, they believe Thomas Jefferson's words that all men are created equal.

It is, after all, the white man that paved paradise and put up a parking lot, invented a technological world that kills 200 species per day, that burns the forests and fouls the sky, and then claims he is the pinnacle of civilization, which he built on the corpses of millions of native Americans and millions of buffalo.

Of course the Jews have taken this to mean it's OK to destroy the white race, because they want to be the white race themselves and rule the world from the top of the pecking order. The two groups are very much alike, and it's hard to tell them apart, particularly now with Jews controlling the American money supply, and Americans sucking up very hard to keep the Jews paying them for the crimes they commit.

The big problem with white nationalists &#8212; or all those who thing they have any chance of returning to a lily white world, or worse, that they can carve out some sort of white enclave for themselves &#8212; is that they don't realize three things.

1. Whites who believe they can still create a whites-only society for themselves are utterly unable to comprehend the damage they have done to the countries they have plundered and the people they have murdered in search of the perfect profit, in search of progress through an exploitative process they came to call colonialism. They have morphed the survival instinct into a social sadism that recognizes only themselves as legitimate citizens of the world.

Whites have taught the colored races of the world to be swindlers and cheaters, rather than responsible citizens. There is no limit to the blowback from this behavior. It pollutes the entire world. Nobody can trust what anybody else is saying.

Everybody who wins wars thinks they're the greatest group that ever lived, until they lose a war, like the Greeks and the Romans. Then they disappear into history, forgotten by time and men's minds. The societies they have built eventually sink into blood-soaked sand.

What was utterly lacking in the whites' process in winning wars, vividly demonstrated by the extermination of the American Indian, was a legitimate understanding of their own moral and religious codes, in which the command to "do unto others" was totally superseded by "steal what you can" and "kill whom you must".

The main requirement to accomplish this ugly task is to believe the enemy is not fully human, and we have always had holy men who for the right price are willing to point out who is evil and needs to be destroyed.

But the hypocrisy eventually comes flying back at us in the form of blowback, as the evils of sadistic exploitation are returned tenfold by those who have nurtured their resentment for generations.

2. Nearly 80 percent of the world is nonwhite. For whites to create a whites only bastion for themselves would mean they would be constantly under attack by those seeking the creature comforts white have created for themselves. We see that now in spades all across Europe with unrealistic Middle Easterners and starving Africans expecting to find a free lunch in Europe, and because of the addled attitudes of Communist leaders betraying their own citizens, often find it in places like Sweden and the United States (much to the dismay of the native white inhabitants).

3. There is no problem carving out a black enclave because mostly no other color wants to go there because it's so primitive, backward, and devoid of creature comforts. Whites have themselves to blame for creating such attractive living environments.

But rather than absorbing immigrants who wish to emulate white cultural behavior, it would have been a lot smarter to have taught them to create their own white-like cultures in their own original countries, and that remains the best recommendation for everyone's future, if any of us legitimately possesses a real future.

The Indians couldn't defend themselves against technology

There are those who attempt to say that the noble savage lived the ideal life, in synch with nature, praying to their holy spirits to forgive them for the game they killed to survive. Yet they couldn't survive the germs the white killers brought from Europe, or defend themselves against the technological superiority of the invaders. And if there ever was an ethnic group that inflicted constant violence upon their neighbors, it was the majority of American indians.

Thomas Goodrich wrote a hair raising account ("Hellstorm") of what happened to innocent Germans after their country was obliterated, but equally disturbing is his earlier book ("Scalp Dance") that chronicles the grisly details of what Western indian tribes did to the first white American settlers who journeyed into their territories.

Yet on the balance scales of history dwells the image of the Puritan Pilgrims, who first colonized the northeast quadrant what later became the USA, once before it was ruined by the Jews was touted as the greatest country every. (And it still is that in a few remote places that have not been scalded and sterilized by the robotic Jewish corporate mentality.

These Pilgrims would have died were they not shown how to grow corn and other crops by the considerate Indian tribes of southeastern Massachusetts. To repay them for their kindness, the white settles slaughtered the Pequot Indians of southeastern Connecticut, poisoned many other tribes with smallpox blankets, slaughtered and burned their women and children, and then bragged about what they had done to their insane god.

This orgy of violence continued across North America for 300 years and since has spilled over throughout the world, where it continues to this very day.

So these are the American scumbags who have taken to whining among themselves about who is better than whom. Their bickering plays right into the hands of those who plan to kill off most of the contenders and capture the world, with a much smaller population, for themselves.

The scales of justice

Today is sure looks like the white race are the new Indians, rapidly being extinguished by colored birthrates that far exceed the size of white families, who have voluntarily reduced their reproductive rates because the Jews scammed them into believing the world was overpopulated.

If you want to disqualify Muslims from living in America, then you sure as hell should ban Americans from living in any Muslim county. Just compare the damage each has done to the other.

The Americans, British, French and Australians, and other assorted white countries have absolutely annihilated nearly all the Islamic countries of the world. What have Muslims done to America, Britain, France and Australia? Stolen a few neighborhoods in Detroit, Minneapolis, Malmo and Marseilles?

So who got the short end of the stick? The thousands of white people inconvenienced in dysfunctional Western cities, or the millions murdered by Jew controlled white bombers attacking innocent people for reasons that were clearly whole-cloth lies?

Walk a mile in the other man's shoes and the answer becomes clear. The only way to peace is to maintain a respectful separateness, which doesn't exclude visiting other countries for the purposes of travel or trade, but doesn't encourage large scale immigration to strange places, because that, as we have seen, only creates large scale disruptions and insoluble animosities.

This entire "strength in diversity" mantra has been nothing but a Jewish scam and is wrecking both Europe and America.

All this clambering all over the world in something people ought to be able to find at home flies in the face of what Ralph Waldo Emerson called the failure of our educational system. We have not been taught how to live functional and rewarding lives, so we travel the world in order to find them, but seldom do. In this way the world has been torn apart, by raiders destroying other countries, and by those seeking refuge in faraway places trying in vain to re-create the homes they left behind.

The identity of the criminals, the enemy, the killers all depend on who you are. Who has done the exterminating and who has been exterminated. It all depends on where you're from. And a better understanding of this is the only way the world will ever find peace.

At the end of his famous essay "Self-reliance", Emerson wrote

Rather than admiring property, the cultivated man is ashamed of it, especially of property that is not acquired by honest work. Respect for property leads to a distortion of political life: Society is corrupted by people who regard government as primarily a protector of property rather than of persons.

Most of us paying attention have figured out by now that presidents don't work for the American people, they serve the invisible ghouls who allow them to run for president because they won't blow the cover of the people nobody knows but who run the world.

I filled out a questionnaire tonight for the Florida Republican Party, and I told them the last five presidents should all be tried for treason. I think you could add all the current presidential candidates, too, even Trump, certainly Mrs. Clinton, and all the other sycophants, agreeing to pretend that lies are truth and America had a right to destroy all those other countries and station uniformed killers all over the world to protect "democracy".

Of course what they all have done to other countries pales in the minds of Americans to what they've done to America, Holder selling guns to Mexican drug gangs so they can run rampant over Arizona ranchers, the CIA smuggling drugs into ghettoes so the Israeli-trained cops can bust the fools who use drugs and keep the prisons populated.

Go home. Be among yourselves, your friends, your kinsmen, your family. There is no stronger or safer place to be on Earth, no safer place to be than with those who understand you. Seek not to lord it over those less advantaged then yourselves. Rather seek to pull those below you up to your level, and respectfully ask those above you to pull you up to theirs. In this way peace will come, not by conquest, but by gratitude.

But we need a government to protect us, and we don't have one. We need to deal with that, before it deals with us. But if we're all scumbags like the leaders we have now, we may justifiably count on never finding a decent government, and that will be the end of us...

Real Fascists (who are the Capitalism&#8217;s guardians) tell us the stories about commi USSR, Korea, Lybia, Syria etc, but themselves commit much more terrible Crimes against humanity...

Nobody could make me follow an order to kill another humanbeing that was not a direct & immediate deadly threat. Lavoy Finicum along with Ammon & Ryan Bundy were peacefully fighting for citizens&#8217; Constitution Rights.

The United Nations with the help of US corrupt politicians are stealing people&#8217;s land, ploundering our natural resources & slowly herding people like cattle into over crowded cities where they can control us by controlling all the food & water, massmedia etc.

People need to open their eyes & look at the big picture or go ahead & submit their children & grandchildren to a life of Slavedom. That is exactly where we are headed in the dead West...

Recent crime of the US government, being the real bloody Dictatorship Monster destroying the world: https://youtu.be/VBNC-ZA9OKE


American self-hatred
as our leaders cannibalize
our country and the world

By John Kaminski

The recent revelation that the United States and its mysterious pseudopresident Barack Obama actually finance MIddle Eastern terrorists while simultaneously professing to be fighting them creates a painful emotional cramp in the minds and hearts of conscientious American citizens as we reluctantly realize our totally untrustworthy leaders and their insincere doublespeak pose a lethal danger to ourselves and others.

It then becomes impossible to love our country when we know our so-called leaders are lying through their teeth when they tell us they must kill many thousands of innocent people in order to protect our own families. To remain silent about this hypocrisy can only create one thing in our own minds &#8212; self hatred, along with a persistent loathing of ourselves and our own cowardly silence that permits these megacrimes against humanity to keep happening.

The continuing hoo-ha over the rise of ISIS and its series of senseless but calculated massacres now spreading all over the world has not only led to draconian police and security crackdowns imposed by the various governments, but has also triggered a bumper crop of skepticism from astute observers who detect both inconsistencies and impossibilities in the tales that are told about these events by a mainstream press which long ago has proven itself incapable of telling the objective truth about anything.

Of course none of this is really anything new. It is American history written over and over again, deepening the darkness of our lives and threatening the future of our children, which may have already been lost through the medical and social depredations of our own government supposedly done on their behalf.

The funding of and then pretending to fight ISIS is a mirror image &#8212; or a next chapter &#8212; in the creation of al-Qaeda some four decades earlier, when Zbigniew Brzezinski imported Saudi Arabian terrorists into Afghanistan to bedevil the imperialistic Soviets.

Today, our conscientious American minds know the history of how these al-Qaeda recruits appear out of nowhere all over the world to serve the purposes of the Jewish American war machine as it smooths out transit routes from Asia to Europe for oil and heroin. Such is the case today in Syria as it was not so long ago in Serbia.

Sometimes al-Qaeda assassins serve as bad guys to be battled as in Afghanistan, other times they are employed as convenient allies to destabilize such places as Serbia or Libya, when we want to replace independent-minded leaders such as Milosevic or Qaddafi.

These ubiquitous Islamic terrorists served as convenient patsies for the greatest false flag crime of all &#8212; the murder of 3,000 American citizens in New York City in 2001, which like a spine thrown permanently out of joint, has skewed American history ever since, and precipitated a profoundly ugly trend of government-staged false flag atrocities that rattle U.S. society to the bone on a regular basis with cynical and bloody attempts to get Americans to give up their guns and get us all to become quiet and obedient slaves to the Jews.

Mostly, this has already happened.

The stories our government tells us just don't add up, but being sheeple, and wanting to fit in with the herd, we have let these lies stand as permanent and legitimate history. Most of us now are not old enough to remember the first Kennedy assassination in 1963, when the Warren Commission, led by a cynical political functionary named Arlen Specter, ruled that a single magic bullet killed the last and possibly the only relatively honest U.S. president, John F. Kennedy.

A half century of independent investigations since that dark day have revealed at least six shots, three potential assassins and two subsequent U.S. presidents &#8212; Lyndon Johnson and Bush Sr. &#8212; to have been intimately involved with this significant turn in the history of the world, a turn which accelerated both the Jewish takeover of the United States and the overall destruction of the planet.

This molding of public opinion through the supposedly objective reporting (but anything but) of Jewish-owned mainstream media stretches back through time through the overwhelming of public resistance to the World Wars, but it is more helpful to quickly review the recent false flag events that have grabbed the headlines and further exacerbated this frenzied mania to solidify this widespread deprivation of individual rights by the rapidly expanding kosher police state.

The police ordered us not to contest their story that a 120-pound weakling carried 80 pounds of guns and ammunition and murdered 20-some children in five minutes in a Connecticut school that was later proven to be closed, or at least not functioning as a legitimate school. It didn't exactly seem convincing when none of the bodies were ever shown, even to their parents, or that many residents of Newtown received millions of dollars and free houses for their participation in this morbid masquerade. (I note with contempt that Amazon has just banned Jim Fetzer's book, "Nobody Died at Sandy Hook", which nicely summarizes the truth of the matter.)

Shortly thereafter we had a terror drill in Boston that unsurprisingly went live (as they so often do) and resulted in the clampdown of an entire metropolitan area while the concerted police state searched for two patsies they arbitrarily designated as the culprits, killing one and slitting the throat of the other so he couldn't talk. An entire country praised the police efforts in killing and capturing those declared guilty by acclamation of mainstream media, no trial being necessary in this gross example of false flag vigilante justice. I could say more about the rigged trial but you probably know how it predictably went.

Skipping over dozens of other lurid examples that the government says were true but common sense proves were lies, we have the grotesque theater "massacre" in Paris, followed quickly by a slaughter in Mali and the day after by cautionary terror shutdowns in Brussels and Belgrade, making very likely that we have now entered an era of daily false flag atrocities developing so fast and furiously that we, the general run of sincere skeptics, will never have enough time to analyze and critique any of them seriously.

But then, we have never figured out the reasons for any of our wars, at least, not in the general public sphere. Few people today know that it was Hitler who continually sued for peace prior to World War II and Roosevelt who manipulated Japan into bombing Pearl Harbor, or that it took us 40 years to realize that the purpose of the Vietnam war was to addict American troops to heroin so they would bring the epidemic back home

Thus it becomes that American self-hatred really is better defined as the shame of being owned by the Jews, who have long controlled our money, our politicians, our bankers, our educators and our entertainers.

We hate not being able to talk about Jews openly, but we've seen so many examples of people who do lose their jobs, and sometimes their lives. Jews have insinuated themselves into our lives by controlling what appears on television and in the movies, and how Congress acts when the leader of Israel comes to town.

This is the stark case of a man who plans on killing or enslaving every single one of us, and our leaders cheer him when he lies to us and tells us how much he loves us. Netanyahu is Big Brother incarnate, and he has turned the vast majority of Americans into homicidal maniacs just like himself.

We owe all of this situation to thinking yo-yos like Milton Berle and Lucille Ball were funny, that sexual "liberation" was normal (when in fact it was an emotional addiction), and that homos who hated their own families were the pinnacle of mental health. In fact, homosexuals are the primary example of alienated individuals who are the perfect control droids of the Jewish Big Brother state, because they rejected the families who tried to love them but didn't do a perfect job.

If there is any hope for the totally insane Jews (though I seriously doubt that there is) it lies with such self-hating Jews as Brother Nathanael Kapner, Shlomo Sand and Gilad Atzmon, who realize they must reject their Jewishness in order to become functional human beings.

But the self-hatred of Americans includes (whether we know it or not) many things that we do not know, like there's no actual law to pay the income tax, or that the incorporation of the United States in 1871 means that everyone pretending to be a government official today, especially including judges, is committing treason because they are really working for a corporation called USA Inc. that doesn't really give a damn about any Americans at all.

(The original Constitution stipulates that anyone posing as a government official is guilty of treason, and since our government is now a corporation, all government employees are now guilty of treason.)

Americans have many things to be ashamed of, including this current and pathetic crop of presidential candidates, none of whom is able to acknowledge that in the celebrated War on Terror, it is the Jewish controlled U.S. that actually furnishes the terrorists, and that all these attacks on society such as the so-called Sandy Hook massacre and the Boston Marathon bombing are actually precipitated by the government itself in order to scare all its citizens into giving up their guns.

It is to the credit of most Americans that they have not fallen for these transparent ruses, even though, to their everlasting shame, they have failed to muster the necessary courage to challenge their corrupt government over their crimes of 9/11, the creation of Al-Qaeda, and the execution of numerous, frequent and horrendous false flag atrocities aimed at convincing U.S. citizens to do things that no sane and civilized person should ever do.

It is for this failure of nerve and lack of basic natural morality that so many intelligent Americans hate themselves.

It is a hatred that is very justified. Where once America was the hope of the world, it is now the Jewish-controlled, homicidal robot scourge of the world.

I suspect there are no genuine Islamic terrorists, but only well-paid brutes hired by clever American, British and French agents who are themselves uncaring dupes of the worldwide Jewish murder machine.

And for that, our self-hatred is a very healthy thing. Once realized, it gives us permission to tear the traitors running our government into little, bloody shreds...

Gentlemen, it's quite easy to define WHO has been financing and supplying all those assassin organisations like Taliban, Al-Qaida, Al-Nusra, "Liberation fronts" of Lybia and Syria, ISIS etc. Interesting information:

Israeli General Commanding ISIS Captured in Iraq


There is a strong cooperation between MOSSAD and ISIS top military commanders...

Real Axis of Evil was evident from the start. Great geopolitical performance called Proxy War of the Washington DC...

Russia is Anti-ISIL; USA and Israel are ISIL

by Karl W. B. Schwarz

There is much handwringing and shrill warnings out of Washington DC about Russia in Syria;.

Has there been a Russian invasion? No. Are Russian troops there killing the USA-sponsored ISIL? Not yet.

What is the problem then?

Egg all over the face of Washington DC Neocons and some dog pooh on their shoes, too.

In the First Chechnya War the CIA and Clinton Administration launched a failed bid to use Al Qaeda in the Muslim areas of Russia itself. The Russian provinces of Chechnya, Ingushetia and North Ossetia are on the north side of the Caucasus Mountains, site of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

That is right, American Sheeple, the USA was directly waging a covert and proxy war against Russia on their own territory. Maybe, just maybe Americans would wake up to realities if either Russia or China did the same to North Carolina or Virginia. Put a proxy war right into the faces of Americans just as America has done to the Russians.

Maybe it would sink in faster if the Proxy War was launched at Hollywood!

That might wake up a few folks on facts versus DC Fantasy Land lies.

Does Ossetia ring a bell in your American Sheeple head? How about South Ossetia, August 2008 when the Bush Administration had Georgia launch an assault in the middle of the night to push back Russia and take over a tunnel that runs under the Caucasus Mountains between North and South Ossetia. The Bush Administration never admitted that he had put about 4,000 Blackwater USA mercenaries in Georgia for the next USA Proxy War and pretend the USA did not do anything wrong like a war crime.

The Bush Administration failed to take over the North-South Ossetia Tunnel, too.

Purpose for such an idiotic idea? South Ossetia is a separatist region of Georgia that decided to keep their Russian passports and citizenship and not be under the boot heels of the anti-Russia agenda by the USA and NATO. There are three such areas of Georgia; South Ossetia, Ajaria and Abkhazia; none of them wanted to be part of the USA-NATO gig against Russia.

South Ossetia is only 25 kilometers from a pipeline right-of-way out of the Caspian Basin region to the Black Sea. BushCo just loves pipelines across Afghanistan (denied), across Dagestan province of Russia to link Kazakhstan to the Black Sea (denied), across Georgia (sort of) and now from Iraq across Syria (denied thus far).

Getting the picture clear in your head yet?

It was not Russian aggression in South Ossetia; it was USA aggression towards Russia. I wrote the key articles that proved to EU and OECD that it was USA and Georgia that stirred up the hornet&#8217;s nest and got their asses kicked hard and firmly by the Russian counterattack.

On an almost parallel track the Bush Administration had these same Neo-Nazi numb-skulls from western Ukraine in Chechnya for the Second Chechnya War. This time after knowing that the violence was a direct CIA USA matter in Chechnya, the Muslims of Chechnya fought alongside Russia and won that second war, too.

I have written on that matter this year:



Well, you can just imagine all of the panties in a wad in Washington DC when they got defeated twice in Chechnya, once in South Ossetia and then turn right around using the same numbskull Neo-Nazis they have groomed for years and got their asses kicked black and blue in the Donbas Region of Ukraine.

Are your brain cells working and following the chronology, getting the picture firmly in your brain?

The problem the Neocons have regarding Russia is they cannot contain a Superpower, regardless of what the lame-brained Wolfowitz Doctrine says. They can beat up and bully tiny little nations that have no real military and cannot even win those disputes.

This mightiest military on Earth mantra is wearing very thin since they have lost over and over again since September 11, 2001.

The US has been caught over and over again doing precision air drops right into the hands of ISIL. The US has recruited them, trained them, financed them, armed them and then pretends nothing is amiss !

Some reporters have even taken photographs of ISIL fighters coming into Israel and getting both supplies and medical aid. Precision air drops right into the hands of the people DC claims they are fighting.

There is a moral to this story: Never lie to create a war against Islam because some assholes in the US and elsewhere thought it was a Really Cool Idea.

Read this and think about the past 14 years of your life.


Russia is on the moral high ground; Washington DC is not...

Shaking News: ISRAELI GENERAL COMMANDING ISIS Captured in Iraq !

By Nahed Al-Husaini on October 19, 2015

What Israeli general's number is 34356578765Az231434 ?

It is none of those above, it is Brig. Gen. Yussi Elon Shahak, and his ID number is 34356578765Az231434

US-Russia showdown imminent but postponed Zionists within the US Administration fiddle behind the scenes.

Another power plants that feeds the city of in Aleppo was struck by US fighter jets. Reliable source, who spoke with VT, said hidden hands within the Administration have an axe-to-grind to attack civilian installations in Syria, in light of continuous Russian airstrikes against ISIS and its subsidiaries.

US planes attacked civilian infrastructure in Mare, Tal Shaer, and al-Bab in Aleppo countryside on Sunday. The attack resulted in cutting off power from most neighborhoods in Aleppo city.

This transgression comes only 8 days after two F-16 warplanes belonging to US lead coalition targeted two power plants in al-Radwaniyeh area, east of Aleppo city, cutting off power from the area. The important question here is who ordered the planes to fly and destroy Syrian infrastructures.

The source is of the belief that US-Russian conformation is imminent but now postponed. The Russians are aware of the fact that Zionist elements are working on tensing up US-Russian relations, via instructing their Partisans to severe any feasible cooperation between the two world powers on Syria and the Region.

Batmen, operating in the darkness, are saving no efforts to spoil the smooth personal relationship established between US president Barack Obama and his Russian Counterpart Vladimir Putin. It is no secret that Obama is currently not in full control of the military. There are insiders who have an agenda of their own not compatible with the codes normally followed by the US army.

The Foreign Affairs High Representative at the USA Parliament and Secretary General of the DESI, European Department for Security and Information Ambassador Dr. HAISSAM BOU-SAID confirmed that Iraqi popular Army captured an Israeli officer whose name is Yussi Elon Shahak, based on the Intel provided by the US international Parliament and European Department for Security and Information.

The officers rank is Brigadier and his military No is Re 34356578765Az231434. This reminds us of the Israeli Brigadier killed in the Syrian city of Quneitra, while meeting with the leaders of the terrorist groups.

Bou Said also revealed that there were mass executions of more than ninety-five ISIS leaders from the elite unit, mostly Chechens, in addition to a small number of Iraqis, in Al SAYNIEH Region adjacent to Mosel. They were indicted for communicating with the enemy.

A group of Chechen and foreigners that entered Russia from Ukraine coming from Mosel were caught by the local authority Bou Said stated. The Intel was confirmed by the Quartet Security committee comprised of Russia, Syria, Iran and Iraq. It is believed that others groups are still positioned in Ukraine to undertake terrorist activities against Moscow. The men in charge are electronic and bombing experts.


ISRAELI COMMANDOS FIGHT ALONGSIDE ISIS against Syrian forces in Golan Heights

After the Israeli army shelled the government-held areas in Golan Heights, militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and al-Nusra Front (AlQaida outlet) launched a new offensive on the Syrian soldiers positions to capture the remaining villages inside the Golan Heights.

FSA and Nusra militants stormed the National Defense Forces (NDF) positions, resulting in a series of intense firefights that took most of the Monday.

The militant groups received a boost from their Israeli allies on Sunday after the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) shelled the heights with several rockets.

This was not the first time that the Israeli Armed Forces have attacked the Syrian army inside the Golan Heights: in August, the Israeli Air Force repeatedly struck the Syrian army in the towns of Hadar and Khan Al-Sheih after the Israeli forces Spokesperson reported that, oy-wey, a missile entered Upper Galilee from the Syrian border.

Last year, the Israeli forces struck the Syrian army at the UN Ceasefire Border-Crossing after they alleged a rocket entered Israel from Al-Quneitra; this paved the way for the al-Qaeda- affiliated al-Nusra Front to take full-control over this border-crossing.

Currently up to 800 IDF forces are operating in support of al Nusra and ISIS inside Syria, coordinating operations including artillery and air support for al Qaeda and other terrorist groups...


WHO INVENTED ISIL, Al-Qaida, Al-Nusra, Taliban, Chechens, Albanians and Maidan...

A video suppressed in the "free, liberal, tolerant" West and by the installed Kiev puppet government. The video is hard to watch, but very important that American audience stays informed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTbRfkSOYi0#t=1989 ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28D3AcsGW-A

Once again the media and members of Congress have been lying about Russia and Ukraine, but this time they got caught red-handed.

A bill was proposed in the US Senate, "Bill to Arm Ukraine with Lethal Military Aid S.452". Its sponsor US Senator Jim Inhof provided to a Washington DC conservative newspaper photos to bolster the case that Russians troops are fighting in Ukraine. But some of the the photos were 6 years old and were not from Ukraine.

Here is the story as reported on RT, a Russian English language news channel:

Wednesday, February 11, 2015 Kiev MPs try to fool US senator with "proof&#8221; of Russian tanks in Ukraine - PHOTOS


The original story reported that the photos might help the US make the case to send weapons to Ukraine. Here is that story introduced with an acknowledgment that some photos were from elsewhere than Ukraine:


Senator Inhof said he received the fake photos from Semen Semenchenko. That is the nom de guerre of Kostyantyn Ihorovych Hryshyn, a Ukrainian citizen who founded the Donbas Battalion, an autonomous volunteer battalion of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, based in Donetsk. He was elected to the Verkhovna Rada in 2014.

There are many responses by netizens reporting on the fake photos which Senator Inhof used to justify his "Bill to Arm Ukraine with Lethal Military Aid S.452", example:


The fact that the photos were quickly refuted is a credit to the internet and the netizens and is a hopeful sign it is getting more difficult to go to war based on a false narrative justified by fabricated evidence.




Are Americans

Episode 65: "The Obsolete Man" (1961)

By John Kaminski

You have to wonder about the sanity of those deluded dupes still waving their flags as our soldiers come home from their mass murder assignments around the world and are treated like heroes when they're really nothing more than brutal, mind-controlled assassins. Wasn't it established at Nuremberg that following illegal orders is a crime punishable by death? By now, hasn't everybody figured out that Al-Qaeda was an invention of the U.S. and Israeli intelligence services, and that this new so-called enemy that America is bombing in Syria was really created by Israel with help from the U.S. and its other flunkie states?

What kind of people cheer wars they know are wrong? What kind of leaders make jokes about the innocent victims they kill without even knowing who they are? What kind of people accept a president whose background is kept totally secret while the most personal secrets of ordinary people are totally exposed; nobody can conceal anything, which leaves them defenseless against exploitation by a government that regards them as something less than human beings?

These questions frequently come up in conversations between people who have been trying to tell the truth about the lies we've been told that are stealing our lives and destroying our future.  

We ask each other —  Why try to explain things to people who don't really want to know? What kind of misanthropes are we trying to help?

A bunch of misguided and ungrateful dummies — that's who — who don't even realize their own government is trying to rob and kill them? More interested in getting drunk and listening to songs meant for emotional retards than in fulfilling the tasks necessary for their own survival.

What's the point in trying to save an ungrateful mob of thoughtless drecks, addicted to self-destructive trivialities, oblivious to the murders conducted in their names around the world and hooked on meaningless rituals, habits and compulsions that actually shorten their own lives.

When we see the things Americans tolerate — such as torture, for instance; or fixed elections, perhaps — or when we hear the things Americans believe, or worst, when we see the things Americans do, well, to those of us who care what our country and our world — and our own lives — might stand for, it just makes us hang our heads in shame.

The vast majority of people don't want to know the truth, even as it affects and shortens their lives. I am ashamed to be an American. I am ashamed to be a human. Americans have proven they are of no benefit to the planet. Humans have proven they are of no benefit to the universe. They only want to consume and destroy.

It would be easy for us to give up trying to expose the truth if we didn't know so many people we admire and respect trying to do the same thing. So despite the fact that hope is slim that we'll be able to overcome this brutal Jewish blotting out of human consciousness, none of the people I know who are committed to telling the truth are ever going to stop, no matter what happens.

It isn't a matter of what we could lose by doing this. It's a matter that life is not worth living in the prison they're creating for us, and we're not about to let it happen, no matter how powerful they are or how coercive they become.

It's way beyond frustration to see our criminal leaders lying through their teeth about the state of the nation when they have deliberately sabotaged its health and welfare, yet profited mightily from the scams they have rammed through their counterfeit legislatures that only benefit themselves and their fellow scammers in the ruling class.

As many people more experienced than I constantly remind me, this is no new phenomenon. The phony gloss put on American history by our schoolteachers and historians conceals a tragic corruption that extends backwards as far as we can see. If we wish to be honest, we need to see the criminal vermin who have controlled America's vicious destiny for who they actually were.

So all these recent military actions that have been fried up since that mother of all false flag ops in New York City haven't really been wars, as none of the designated opponents who were falsely accused of the crime have been worthy foes, and not only that, have not been remotely capable of putting up a decent enough fight to have actually been in something called a war. They have been victims of unlawful massacres, a nonstop sequence of mass murders conducted to enrich the Jewish bankers who rip off the world.

Iraq and Afghanistan really never had what you could honestly call an air force, and these other brushfire wars for which American soldiers beat their breasts about their bravery really haven't been wars at all. No fly zones have come to mean mass assassinations of people in countries that can't really defend themselves.

America's military heroes have recently been and perhaps have always been nothing but paid killers pillaging defenseless populations. You know all the ugly stories, or you should. At least the people trying to sound the alarms know about them.

The rest are lost in football games and soap operas while their children are being killed in wars that simply did not need to be fought. Now the fiasco in Syria has American troops fighting mercenary outlaws America's leaders have paid for, pretend enemies like Al-Qaida, serving the pathetic purposes of the Jews who sell the weapons and finance the wars. 

The vast majority of Americans can't see beyond the end of their own driveways, don't really care about the fate of their neighbors, and think the meaning of the word community is the distance between the two nearest malls.

But enough about them. It's fair to say the majority of Americans are not worth saving, being utterly unfamiliar with their own consciences.

But it's also fair to say that I know a lot of people who are worth saving, and they are a distinct minority in America today. 

They are the people who know that 9/11 was a hoax, that the wars which followed were totally unjust criminal actions, and that all of America's elected officials are really prison wardens assisting in the robbery and murder of the American people. 

How can you trust a population that has endured phony elections without protesting, tolerated criminal presidents who have covered up the truth, sent all our jobs overseas and demolished the Constitution?

Among the many types of people who are decidedly not worth saving are the writers, publishers and website operators who pretend to be champions of the opposition but are really saboteurs of this chaotic movement for human freedom.

They violate the one simple criterion necessary to identifying the perpetrators of all this false flag chaos, this ubiquitous sabotage of all our social structures and the perverters of our minds through electronic and chemical subversion. It is a step that terrifies most people, and failure to name the perps identifies them as moral cowards afraid to stand up for their own freedom. It identifies them as traitors to justice and honesty.

And it pretty much describes the American citizenry, which gabs endlessly about phony candidates running in prearranged elections, talking about bogus currency and fabricated conflicts, hiding the real secrets of the world like sex between politicians and children or how drugs are made illegal to drive up the price, and fill the prisons with millions of low wage employees.

With all the legitimate categories of scams and atrocities to attract our attention, there is one topic that people seem to be most eager to avoid. And no, I'm not talking about the Jews' perversion and exploitation of reality, at least not this time. Besides, I'm getting really sick of ignoramuses who insist Jews are just another ethnic group, ignorant victims of bad press. These are people incapable of doing legitimate homework, and I'm finished trying to explain reality to them.

No, the real subject of our attention that could be designated as more important than anything else is reflected on a sad website called Nature Bats Last, whose lead story lately has the morose title of "A proposed model for Near-Term Human Extinction Support Group Functioning".

Doubtless many of you are not up to speed on this topic. Those who are have an interest in suicide support groups, because they know — or at least they believe — that all life on this planet is about to come to an end, and can't stand the thought of it.

Because I do believe in karma, sometimes I think — or maybe it is that I hope — that the Earth will repay us for our lack of kindness and consideration for the bounty it has given us, and the scientific theories of all those scientists monitoring the global threat posed by the increasing methane release in the Arctic Ocean and on the Russian tundra are an appropriate reward for human behavior throughout world history. A perfectly appropriate reward.

I could give you the links, but once you know, you'll find your way to them.

How long did you think we could kill off a hundred species per day before everything came to an end?

That the good guys always win in the end is a fallacy, you know. No matter how fervently we pray for forgiveness, we are about to find the price of our ignorance, carelessness and downright cruelty is going to be much more devastating than we ever imagined.

How to survive in the Age of Empire

George Monbiot believes the world is being battered by a full frontal assault on democracy by a class of global elites... (Mathaba.net)

WE LIVE IN a world of Empire.

The empire serves what has been described by George Monbiot in The Guardian as ‘a class of global elites which has, in effect, seceded’ and is subverting society from above: ‘an elite insurgency’.

The empire is based on extracting resources and wealth from across the globe. And it is in its final days of decline. The monetary system has created too much debt – an instrument of wealth extraction – and its extractive toll is now collapsing both the global economy and the eco-system.

Citizens in Western countries managed for a century or so to grab back some of the wealth.

This was due to several factors. One factor was that the system needs consumers; another that the resistance that everyday people put up first in the form of violent revolt; then, later, more successfully in the form of trade unions.

However, the logic of the system is still in place.

The Dickensian long work hours ‒ poor conditions that Westerners thought they had shrugged off have continued in less developed nations and, with globalization, conditions in the West are deteriorating. Labour unions lose effectiveness when employers have no loyalty to nation states and can – and do – move production to more amenable environments — environments with no labour or environmental protections. Services which cannot be sent off-shore (transport, hospitals etc) are declared “essential services” and strikes are banned by law. This leaves only less critical service industries such as hospitality which, filled with temporary and casual workers, are poorly unionized and no threat to the system.   

This process of sending jobs to nations with low wages and low costs – due to a lack of protections for people and the environment – is hollowing out Western nations and, by many measures, America is largely a Third World nation.


The problems are added to by extractive banks which over-lend and also by the fact that everything we call progress is really just shifting production — either to cheaper workers offshore or to fossil fuel based processes and automation. Both of these increase the global economy’s dependence on fossil-fuels and make the extraction of carbon based energy sources an imperative to keep the system going. 

Thus we have an almost unstoppable push to shale, oil and coal seam gas (CSG) production, despite the obvious damage this does to the environment, including destroying whole mountain ranges and an area the size of England in the Canadian wilderness — not to mention adding to the atmosphere’s overburden of greenhouses gasses.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that these elites have any forward thinking.

As Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges says, they mistakenly believe that their wealth will protect them as society inevitably collapses due to the pathological system which supports them. 

It is only a matter of time before these processes of social and economic regression hit Australia.  

So, what should we do?

We need to start building localized, resilient communities. And we need to do it soon, as the global financial system is hanging by a thread, as foreigners are reducing their buying of US treasury bonds, and even everyday Americans are apparently switching to other currencies ascurrency-collapse preppers.

One proposal for Australian communities could prepare is presented at 8thstate.net. This may not be best approach for all or any communities, but we desperately need ideas, and this may be a starting point.


The importance of community in a crisis cannot be underestimated. Compare Haiti with neighbor Cuba: both experienced serious crises in recent decades — Cuba an economic collapse, Haiti an earthquake. Cuban’s strong community pulled them together and they emerged as strong as before.  Haiti, however, with its dysfunctional society fractured into a social and environmental dystopia.

Haiti has been described as follows:

‘You can literally see dysfunction from space: satellite photos of the island that Haiti shares with the Dominican Republic show the denuded hillsides on the Haitian side of the border.1 Muddy hills routinely swallow up Haitian hamlets because the state does not have the wherewithal or the interest to keep villagers from stripping the hillside of trees that can be burned to warm a hovel or heat an evening meal.’

And to what has this dysfunction been attributed? In large part, to a government that did not protect its citizens:

‘Ineffective political institutions, a predatory state, corrupt and venal politicians, and a weak civil society have conspired to wreck Haiti’s western third of the island of Hispaniola.’

How could western nations possibly face this same fate?

Well our own governments may contribute, and need to be watched. George Monbiot, writing in The Guardian, sees new “trade agreements” like the Trans-Pacific Partnership covering the Pacific rim and the similar Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership covering the Atlantic as a “full frontal assault on democracy” for the nations that sign up.

According to Monbiot, the Transatlantic pact (and by implication the Trans-Pacific pact) is to be feared because of:

‘the remarkable ability it would grant big business to sue the living daylights out of governments which try to defend their citizens. It would allow a secretive panel of corporate lawyers to overrule the will of parliament and destroy our legal protections.’

He concludes his article with the warning: ‘Wake up, people we're being shafted.’

The truth is, even without these secret agreements, many in the West feel that their governments are betraying them for corporate interests.

This has led to warnings by Chris Hedges that the United States is a‘tinder box’ that could easily erupt into a popular rebellion. He suggests that we are in the midst of a class war, due to the ‘insatiable selfishness and hedonism’ of the oligarchs, whom he describes as our ‘ruling elite’. 

And he is not alone in this opinion.

Russell Brand, recently appointed guest editor of the UK based New Statesman, went so far as to call for a revolution, arguing that:

“we are living in a time of huge economic disparity and confronting ecological disaster.”

He warns of “ruling elites, who had forgotten that we are one interconnected people, destroyed their societies by not sharing.”

Adding: “That is what's happening now.”

And given our leaders' failures to deal with our most significant problems, some believe that a People's movement is the Earth's only realistic hope.

Chipping children



By John Kaminski



So you answer the call of the wild, in your fashionable Banana Republic clothing, in your tricked-out SUV. You are so cool. So in control. So ready to deal with anything society has to offer. Everything you need you can get on your Smart Phone.

It's now fashionable to lash out and hurt someone. It's even more satisfying than drugs. It's the new drug, actually. Verifying your own power by hurting someone else. Getting revenge on the pain you so desperately try to escape. Victory over meaninglessness.

Something really has been stolen from you. It is the sense of who you actually are. The Knockout Game, brought on by the culture of sports, takes the place of something that has been stolen from you. Your self-respect, perhaps. You think you thought of all this yourself, but you don't realize that you are only who you are told to be. With each passing day, your options shrink. http://www.theburningplatform.com/2013/11/18/knockout/

School IDs follow children home. Policemen known as teachers watch you on your home computer. The only people who have your best interests at heart — your parents — have been eliminated from the equation. They are so retrograde. So uninformed. The government knows better. Your TV guru knows better. Your Smart Phone knows better. Or so you have been told.

The common core curriculum


It's really important to get your kids out of public school, almost as important as getting away from your own doctor, who will create more problems that he will solve due to his profitable predilection for prescribing dangerous, ineffectual drugs and conducting unnecessary and potentially fatal surgeries (if diseases that lurk in hospitals don't get you first).

As the link says,

THIS IS AN OFFICIAL RED ALERT. THIS IS NOT LIKE “BACK IN THE DAYS” WHEN “YOU” were in school getting indoctrinated with propaganda. THIS TIME THESE PEOPLE ARE DAYS AWAY FROM TURNING EVERY SCHOOL IN THE WORLD INTO A SICK AND TWISTED HUMAN MICROCHIPPING FARM, where every student is a braindead MICROCHIPPED corpse taking orders from and only obeying the government due to the microchip in their little bodies.

As if this weren't bad enough, the same psychiatric establishment that created Attention Deficit Disorder as well as drugs that permanently injure your brain in an effort to combat what they call Bipolar Disorder is now advocating a more compassionate understanding of "minor attracted people"; that is to say, they are advocating the legalization of child molestation.

Yes, you heard that right. Pedophilia is now classified as a sexual orientation. http://www.neontommy.com/news/2013/10/pedophilia-sexual-orientation

Today, psychologists seem to be more interested in the welfare of MAPs (minor attracted persons) than they are in ruining the personalities of children for life http://www.b4uact.org/science/symp/2011/speaker/abstracts.pdf, just like our government is more interested in the care of indigent immigrants than it is in the people who built the country.

The childhood vaccinations that cause permanent brain damage were only the start of completely disfiguring the next generations.

You have lost your children, but that was only long after you lost yourself.

Phony American culture makes less sense than the most savage of African tribes, who at least have their own survival reflected in their rituals, some practical purpose attached to their gyrations. Whereas America has only its own senseless destruction as the object of its electronic, pharmaceutical and behavioral lobotomization.

Plus, American culture is primarily responsible for the destruction of the planet. Technology has ruined us, cut us off from nature and made us unable to survive in the wild, which likely will be returning soon.

People have locked themselves into electronic prisons. The process of alienation and separation — and the atomization of society into discrete psychopaths who most definitely cannot think for themselves — has become complete with the ascendance of smart phones, the electronic hula hoop of the new century.

While their friends go begging, everybody's texting, not noticing that while they do, nature is turning black, and the very air they breathe gets thinner every day.

I've noticed this is some very important passages in my own life. Nobody makes their own decisions. They ask their friends for advice. What would they do? Often these friends are paid to give advice. Bad advice. Profitable advice.

Nobody makes their own decisions. Consensus is the new poison. Being reasonable, being realistic is our new rationale. Universal betrayal is the result. If it doesn't fit into the bottom line, it has to go.

Once it was said that corporations had been turned into people. But really, people have been turned into corporations, just like our country. And budgets are not about justice, which is why it has disappeared.

Where do we get the knowledge to do what we do?  Very often it is from someone who is selling it. For a purpose. For a profit.

These people aren't our leaders. They're criminals, working for a foreign power. A power that has no allegiance to any country or group of people, only to robbery, mass murder and colossal profit. Our leaders are our executioners. And they teach us to be just like them.

They're chipping children now, a ruthless regimentation that will eventually lead to the elimination of all individual thought. You might think this has already happened.

If you think that's an exaggeration, I suggest you check the mineral levels in your own body, and the irrelevance of your own mind.

You have made career the most important thing, without realizing that in the end, your efforts will be coopted and your career ruined by the corporation that controls your show. The emptiness that follows, the disappointment that eventually overtakes all those who work for corporations, will leave you no alternative but to seek out the benevolence of the state, which will relieve your distress according to the requirements of its master plan. It has no place for you.

I didn't sleep at all the other night after reading this story, by one of the greatest bloggers on the web, Video Rebel, who asked, "Now that you understand real history you know what the men who think they own both you and your government will do to you after they have squeezed the last penny out of you and have no further use for you, your friends and your family." http://vidrebel.wordpress.com/2011/10/04/if-you-do-not-learn-real-history-you-will-be-dead-really-soon/

What do you think all those hollow point bullets are for?

Blessings of the state, blessings of the masses. There are no friends among them, only fellow co-conspirators, who like you, are trying to escape from themselves.

You have let your family be destroyed by clever strategists who promise riches but deliver only disappointment and fatigue, not to mention debility and disease.

The erasure of scruples. There is no society left to adhere to, only mindless consumption and titillation, following trends that are ultimately destructive and leave you wondering why there is no one left to hold you, only blow-up dolls you can buy at your local bar, your local mall, some of them actually living and breathing.

All you can really do is make yourself into person you have been told to be. Which is someone that, left to your own devices, you would have never wanted to be.

Now you only want to be like everyone else, accepted, not left out. Which is why you have been turned into a robot.

Think you have been making your own decisions all this time? Think again. If you can still think at all.

Realize that in order to save yourself, you're the one who has to save everyone else. If you don't, everyone dies.



Oliver Stone on the Untold U.S. History from the Atomic Age to Vietnam to Obama’s Drone Wars.


Academy Award-winning Oliver Stone has teamed up with historian Peter Kuznick to produce a 10-part Showtime series called "Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States"... 



Drawing on archival findings and recently declassified documents, the filmmakers critically examine U.S. history, from the atomic bombing of Japan to the Cold War, to the fall of communism, and continuing all the way through to the Obama administration.


Contrary to what’s taught in schools across the country, the filmmakers found the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were militarily unnecessary and morally indefensible. They also suggest the Soviet Union, not the United States, ultimately defeated the Germans in World War II.

And, they assert, the United States, not the Soviet Union, bore the lion’s share of responsibility for perpetuating the Cold War. The filmmakers also found U.S. presidents, especially in wartime, have frequently trampled on the Constitution and international law, and they note the United States has brought the world dangerously close to nuclear war by repeatedly brandishing nuclear threats.


Guests: Oliver Stone, 3-time Academy Award-winning director and screenwriter. A Vietnam War veteran, he has made around two dozen acclaimed Hollywood films, including Platoon, Wall Street, Salvador, Born on the Fourth of July, JFK, Nixon, W., South of the Border and Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.

Oliver Stone has now co-written a 10-part Showtime series called Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States. The first episode features a companion book with a similar name.
Peter Kuznick, professor of history and director of the Nuclear Studies Institute at American University. He is the co-writer on a 10-part Showtime series called Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States.

Washington Poison Gas Attack

By Frank Scott – mathaba.org

The Obama administration seems to be surpassing previous regimes in bloody hypocrisy as it feigns shock and awe at alleged crimes committed in Syria. After we have been told that more than 100,000 Syrians have been killed in a civil (?) war, mostly the responsibility of outside forces capitalizing on legitimate internal concerns, we are supposed to believe that shooting, stabbing, decapitating, bombing and burning are all tolerable forms of slaughter, but chemical weapons are shockingly inappropriate forms of murder. What’s a civilized nation do?

President Boobama works to make the previous pinhead look smart by comparison as he first steps into diplomatic excrement by proclaiming that use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line” established by more polite mass murderous practices of the west. After first receiving word of this red line crossing from unimpeachable sources called “rebels”, all of these information sources operating from the safety of countries outside Syria, further evidence was provided by the international medical team of hypocrisy calling itself doctors without morals, or borders. These totally trustworthy information comfort stations are joined by top secret American government spies and informants unknown to anyone but our democratic rulers, and all this combines with saber rattling warheads frustrated by recent low death tolls caused by our direct intervention in blood-letting profit-making.

No less than the so-dumb-he-lost senator McCain has been lusting for war with or without alleged chemical weapons since the Syrian bloodletting began and he now seems close to assuming surrogate presidency as the better educated but just as dumb president moves closer to carrying out the orders of those even more deranged than he or McCain.

But not to worry, our debt limit will soon be raised so we can afford new murders in the Middle East as we cut budgets for social services at home and comfortably await Armageddon or the next act of real and not alleged terrorist attack when one of our super drones is “returned to sender” just as we charge new purchases at the mall. Be happy, go shopping?

Questions For The Corporate Media And Politicians:

Posted on  by horse237

1) Why was the federal government allowed to kill the journalist Michael Hastings?

2) Why was DHS allowed to conspire to use snipers to kill leaders of the Occupy protests?

3) Why was there no media coverage when President Jimmy Carter said America was no longer a functioning democracy?

4) Why were the politicians and media allowed to lie us into war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria?

5) Fluoride has been known to be a poison to humans since 1893.  Why does the federal government force us to put fluoride in our water when scientists have proven that it causes cancer and reduces IQ in children who take it while their young brains are forming?

6) Genetically Modified food causes cancer, underweight offspring, sterility and death in test animals. Why does our government allow this to be fed to human beings?

7) Why does the FDA allow manufacturers to line cans of food with Bisphenol A when it is known to cause cancer?

8) Why is Aspartame put in so many foods when it is known to cause cancer, obesity, seizures, diabetes, headaches, memory loss and acne?

9) Why is MSG put in so many foods when it it is known to cause cancer, obesity, hunger, Alzheimers, hives and brain damage?

10) Why is polysorbate 80 put into vaccines as an adjuvant when it is known to cause sterility?

11) Why did the FDA pay Matthew Hein of the Epicyte corporation in 2001 to splice a protein into GMO corn that causes sterility in both men and women?

12) Why is DHS buying 7,000 tanks to patrol the streets of America? Why did they buy more than 2 billion 40 caliber hollow point bullets?

13) Why is the NSA demanding our passwords? Are we the enemy? Has the federal government declared war on us?

14) Why did the federal government decide they needed 30,000 drones to patrol the skies of America? Over half of these are to be armed. Do they plan to fire missiles at us after the dollar collapses? Did they use the 2010 Census to get GPS coordinates to our homes in order to target us with missiles?

15) The federal government announced they have a robot that can run 35 mph and kill us a mile away. They also said they have miniature drones the size of an insect that can identify us using facial recognition software via satellite, spy on us and even kill us with an electrical shock. Why do they have so many plans to spy on us and to kill us?

16) More than 3 million Americans died of starvation in the last Depression. Just how many Americans do they expect to die when this current Depression really gets going?

17) Why does the federal government feel they need more than 800 FEMA and National Guard prison camps prepared for civil unrest?

18) Why did the Army issue field manual FM 3-39-40 to its troops in 2010 if they did not see a need for a set of instructions to prepare the soldiers who will be expected to manage millions of us civilians in the near future?

19) Why is there no discussion of the privately owned Federal Reserve’s ability to create money out of nothing and to charge us interest thus transferring all wealth from us to the bankers?

20) News of a Core list of 8 million Americans has been leaked. We are told these people are to be picked up in case they say bad things after the dollar crashes and a few million Americans die of starvation. We do know for a fact that millions of people are on No Fly and Slow Fly lists. Why is there no procedure to remove ourselves from these lists?

21) Why were there no criminal investigations into the assassination of President Kennedy and the 911 attack on America?

22) Why did the Senate and the House pass the NDAA which gives the government the right to arrest us without trial and right to counsel? Why did the President sign the bill and say he had the right to torture and to kill Americans without due process ?

Wait a minute. I finally understand American and world history. It tells us why we cannot investigate 911. Why we are fed poisons in our food that sterilize and kill us. Why we are treated as an enemy of the state with the government spying on us and demanding our passwords. Why Wall Street is allowed to steal our money by the tens of trillions. Why the government is preparing to kill us.

It is because BASTARDS run our government and the media. They know they have stolen our paychecks, our savings and our pensions. They declared war on humanity.

The Fundamental Fact of Your Existence as a modern man or woman is that the bankers of New York and London want to reduce you to Debt Slavery.

Accept that fact and move on to the solution.

That is their plan for you. What is your plan for them?

Pax Judaica To Replace Pax Americana Which Replaced Pax Britannica


I Stole 3.5 Trillion Dollars From You. I Dare You To Do Something:



Perverted president of a perverted people



By John Kaminski


If Americans think they're decent people, how can they allow slime like Barack Obama and John Kerry to deliberately lie to make war on innocent countries after providing the chemical weapons that killed all those people in Syria?

All this talk about averting World War III by placing Syria's chemical weapons under international control conceals the real issue everyone conveniently ignores — America and its corrupt allies funded this so-called revolution that is really a U.S. and Euro invasion by mercenary proxies hired to destroy this innocent country, and therefore Obama bears responsibility for killing all those children.

But the majority of Americans have the attention span of gnats. 

Befuddled by deliberately misleading media and diminished by the poison food they eat, most don't pay attention and deserve the so-called leadership they get. In general, they are as disgusting, unconscious and untrustworthy as the phony leaders who are destroying them as they dance to the latest technopop tunes and pretend not to notice.

Here's the thing that makes U.S. President Barack Obama such a lying bottom-of-the-barrel loser working for an evil foreign power. The chemical weapons that murdered all those children in Syria were set off by the very thugs America hired to destabilize Syria, and the whole world knows it. 

The foreigners the press calls "rebels", noted famously for publicly eating the organs of Syrian soldiers they have just murdered, have even admitted that they set off the gas by accident. And when footage of the dead children was shown on TV, grieving Syrian parents identified their children as ones who had been kidnapped by the rebels two weeks earlier. 

Yet, even that doesn't cause the American killers who revel in the needlessly spilled blood of innocents to call off their insane clamor for yet another senseless war.

Therefore, Barack Obama bears the responsibility for killing those kids and all those other innocent people. And then he has the sick chutzpah to blame it on the very people he used these horrible weapons against, as a perverted pretext to obliterate yet another Islamic country at the behest of Israel.

That's Barack Obama, doing Mafia's dirty work, like all of America's recent presidents, both at home and abroad.


Think of the list of people he has unjustly killed that all should be mentioned at his trial for mass murder. The honorable Muammar Qaddafi comes immediately to mind.

And the archfiends backing him up — Kerry, McCain, Lieberman, Clinton and all the other killer whores — are all just as evil, wholly owned agents of the worldwide Western murder machine. And worse, these hypocritical thugs provide the whole world with a despicable portrait of all Americans as bloodthirsty homicidal maniacs, which not coincidentally is the same reputation enjoyed by Israel — big surprise! — as together in a marriage made in hell they violate all the laws of God and men in pursuit of their psychotic, totalitarian objective, which is unparalleled profit for the few and unprecedented poverty for the masses.

And here's another thing that makes Barack Obama a certifiable conscienceless monster, gayly prancing before the world as he rains death from the skies upon innocent people. 

Here's a creep who will reveal no single detail about his own past — fake birth certificate, fictitious college resumй, reputed string of dead homosexual lovers, no verifiable reason for him to have ever been elected to anything — supervising a  massive intelligence operation that demands to know every detail on every person through improper and invasive spying on everyone. 

And the perverted people he purports to represent eagerly participate in this masochistic masquerade.

Bottom line: Obama demands to know every single detail of our lives, but will reveal absolutely nothing about his own.

Do you see something wrong here, my fellow comatose American dupes? 

Do you still harbor doubts that America — murdered on 9/11/2001, if not 12/23/1913 — is a police state? Do you yet understand that the real victim of this tyranny is about to be you?

How many more cops will have to taze grandmothers, steal children, fabricate crimes with phony evidence, and torture innocents for absolutely no reason, before you realize something is very wrong — and that something is about to take your very own life, right after it steals all your money and your property? I'm assuming you already know that you own nothing; the bank owns your home and your money, and the government has secretly taken out a $1 million insurance policy on your life — on everyone's life — which makes it a very profitable venture to kill you.

All these misguided twerps who say, "Impeach him!", are as stupid and gullible as most of the rest of these totally dumbed-down Americans. If you think impeaching Barack Obama is going to do a damned bit of good except provide our prostitutes in the press more fodder for mindless, inconsequential blather, you are sadly mistaken.

Who's going to replace him? Joe Biden? The man who recently praised Jewish contributions to the American "success story". He must have been talking about the prostitution and poisoning of our children, the pollution of our lives and the deliberate demolition of our environment. 

Remember the craze the Disney character Hannah Montana set off among pre-teen girls? Now this same teen idol is performing pornographic dances on Jewish stages. Just what the Jews want our children to learn, if they haven't already been killed off by childhood inoculations or prevented from having either children or normal lives after their doctors told them to take Gardasil.

Think about the two losers Obama supposedly "defeated" in presidential elections: John McCain, the evil twin of kosher nightmare Joe Lieberman, and Mitt Romney, famous for his offshore bank accounts and prominent Israeli backers. So if you wear one of those "I voted" stickers, you're announcing to the world you're an idiot, for falling for this scam they call voting.

Think about all the other possible mental defectives who could move into the White House if Obama were to be impeached. It's a choice between Newt Gingrich and Chuck Schumer, or one of any number of puppets, willing to take the paycheck for the perversions they promote.

Impeachment is for delusional fools. The whole government needs to be arrested as the threat to the world that it is. Arrested, tried, convicted and mostly executed, for ten (OR A HUNDRED) years of mass murders they've committed — including plenty of Americans, especially the servicemen they've poisoned with toxic vaccinations and then taught to kill and torture the innocent people whose countries they're busy stealing, abusing and annihilating.

And for what? None of these phony wars have been any benefit at all to ordinary, run-of-the-mill Americans, but only to the rich bankers who have plundered our country while our so-called men have been killing innocent victims all over the world.

While thousands of American children are trying to go to school while living in their cars, because their parents' jobs have been sent overseas by the last three American presidents, Barack Obama sends his children on multi-million dollar vacations in foreign countries, and sends his wife with an entourage of 75 close friends to exotic locales that cost more than entire small towns in America will earn in a whole year.

While Obama lauds hard-working Americans who have to work three jobs to make ends meet, he allows the Federal Reserve to rob citizens of trillions of dollars by unsound banking practices that continue the vacuuming of American bank accounts right down the sewer to Israel.

While ordinary Americans cringe in terror from an epidemic of black gangsterism that goes mostly unreported in what is mistakenly called a free press, President Obama urges everyone to forgive the behavior of immigrant criminals while he secretly authorizes the funneling of weapons to Mexican drug cartels that are ravaging the American southwest.

And while people who are finally waking up and realizing that unnecessary doctor prescriptions have created an entirely new category of diseases plaguing the American public, his monstrous creation of Obamacare guarantees not only the further plundering of people's bank accounts, but locks them into allopathic medical care that is clearly not beneficial to anyone's health, with the widespread distribution of harmful antidepressant drugs, unnecessary surgeries and cancer treatment that absolutely does not cure cancer, while simultaneously criminalizing the efforts of intelligent people trying to take care of their own health.

And now Barack Obama wants to start another war, because of events that he himself has triggered.

But, let's be fair in our description of America's "duly-elected" president. Obama's deliberately incompetent performance has not been much worse than his two predecessors, whose dereliction of duty set the stage for many of the atrocities the latest occupant of the White House has merely maintained and embellished.

After all it was George W. Bush who non-supervised the destruction of the Twin Towers, uttered the fateful words "they hate our freedoms", and began a non-stop war on the world, the objective of which is to destroy every country the Israel want us to destroy.

And it was Bill Clinton who shepherded the avalanche of American jobs to Third World countries, allowed the term "derivatives" to destroy what was left of America's banking system, and announced we had a surplus which enabled Bush to start giving money away the moment his term started.

All three of these puppet presidents deserve the credit from how we got from there to hundreds of trillions of dollars in debt in a mere decade. And as they continued to get rid of all the really good American jobs, how many lives did they throw away during their never-ending wars in the name of American security?

They say an American president is merely the average representation of the American population as a whole, and if this is true, maybe the world controllers are right and the American population does need to be exterminated.

Clinton was a sex-crazed maniac who supervised the destruction of the American workforce by passing NAFTA and shipping all our jobs overseas while allowing bankers to create derivatives which destroyed the U.S. banking system and robbed everyone of their savings.

Bush was a drug-addled sociopath with no intellectual capacity whatsoever who ran the country with all the demonic finesse of Joe Sixpack at a hog calling context.

And Obama is the gay street hustler who had no parents and was raised by the evil plot-hatchers who put advocates of transexuals and child-kidnappers on the Supreme Court.

This is a perfect portrait of the American president and the American population, painted by the Jewish world puppet masters who have captured the world's mind and turned it into a total impulsive exercise in self-flagellation as we face a future as bleak as has ever existed on this planet.

John Kaminski is a writer who lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida, constantly trying to figure out why we are destroying ourselves, and pinpointing a corrupt belief system as the engine of our demise.

Countering Imperialism: An Alternative Vision to Tyranny

By Hansel - mathaba.net

Many of us have a vision, an alternative vision to the tyranny of those who control the world. But we are ridiculed, dismissed, put on trial (Manning), confined to a small embassy in London for months on end (Assange), called unrealistic or subversive and told to ‘get real’. Are we destined to be the ‘I told you so bunch’?

The current wholly corrupt system is edging humanity towards the precipice of oblivion. When that happens, we (if we are still alive – if anything is still alive, apart from cockroaches) will say ‘we told you so’. If there is to be any hope, if there is to be anything better, we must remain ‘unreal’ and true to our beliefs.

Some like to believe that the meek (or gentle) shall inherit the earth. But it is popularly suggested that cockroaches may well do so if or when humanity destroys itself through nuclear war (or depleted uranium radiation). Cockroaches have a much higher radiation resistance than vertebrates, with the lethal dose perhaps six to 15 times that for humans.

Cockroaches are regarded as pests. They feed on human food, and can leave an offensive odor. They can also passively transport microbes on their body surfaces, including those that are potentially dangerous to humans. Cockroaches have been shown to be linked with allergic reactions in humans, including asthma.

It begs the question: is there much difference between the people that currently run the world and the cockroach? Both are pests, both feed off humanity, both cause disease and suffering. And both can end up sucking the oxygen from our lungs. The only difference is that there is no malicious intent on the part of the insect variety – it’s just the way they are. And the impact of the cockroach is minimal by comparison.

The same may not be said of the human variety that has instituted a corrupt system of ‘globalization’. This system of US-led imperialism benefits state-corporate interests who have been able to manipulate the international system of trade and finance in their favor to shift capital around the globe at ease. Supported by militarism and secular theology masquerading as neo-liberal economic theory, the result has been big profits and environmental degradation, easy money and cheap labor, private gain and public havoc.

The food and pharmaceuticals/healthcare industries work hand in glove to sicken and treat us; ‘big oil’ works with agribusiness to impose a system of big-dam, water intensive chemical-industrial at the expense of environmental sustainability; from Syria to Pakistan, US militarism is implemented under on behalf of powerful corporations under the lie of ‘humanitarianism’ or the ‘war on terror’; and the profiteering nuclear energy and resource extraction industries are destroying democracy, robbing people of their land and putting environments in jeopardy in places like India, where a nation’s poorest people are considered ‘surplus to requirements’, an inconvenient truth, and are beaten, raped and disposed of because they are a barrier to corporate ‘progress’ – profit and greed.

Whole populations are lied to and deceived on behalf of rich corporate interests that have succeeded in hijacking the machineries of state and media for commercial gain. Democracy is corrupted, local economies are destroyed, debt and dependency is used to assert control, science is pressed into the service of a worldwide arms industry and fraudulent corporate activities and there is endless conflict over finite resources.

The current system is ecologically destructive and relies on perpetual war and conflict. It is both socially divisive and unsustainable and is tied to an image of the world laid down by corrupt transnational corporations and translated into policy by the IMF, WTO, World Bank and national governments.

Projects like Navdanya in India that seek to take the control of food and agriculture back from agribusiness, or the finer elements of successful policies in places like Cuba or Venezuela, are just some of the many examples from across the world that indicate how we could address the problems we currently face. However, from Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and General Electric to Shell, Monsanto and others, there are those who seek to maintain the current system (status quo) at all costs. We don’t need them, but they will be difficult to get rid of.

“Some cockroaches have been known to live up to three months without food and a month without water. They are even resilient enough to survive occasional freezing temperatures. This makes them difficult to eradicate once they have infested an area.” – Wikipedia

These cockroaches, the financiers, industrialists and corporate funded politicians, despise transparency, dislike democracy and hate anyone trying to hold them to genuine account. These are the criminals who have quite literally got away with murder with their illegal wars, indiscriminate use of drone attacks and exploitative economic policies.

It is the likes of Bush, Blair, Obama, Cheney, Rice and their profiteering arms dealing cronies, private ‘security’ contractors and corporate billionaire puppet masters who should be standing in the dock, not the likes of Manning or Assange. They should be made to pay for the millions of deaths they have caused.

“It the Nuremberg tribunal defines aggression as the supreme international crime, differing from other war crimes, and it encompasses all of the evil that follows. The US and British invasion of Iraq was a textbook example of aggression, which means that we were responsible for all the evil that followed. Serious conflict arose. It spread all over the region. In fact the region is being torn to shreds by this conflict.

That’s part of the evil that follows…Take a look at the International criminal court (ICC) – Black Africans or other people the West doesn’t like. Bush and Blair ought to be up there. There is no recent crime worse than the invasion of Iraq. Obama’s got to be there for the terror war… it’s just murder on executive whim” Noam Chomsky (1)

However, to achieve what Chomsky advocates would entail the victims of such crimes being made to sit in judgement over the perpetrators. The International Criminal Court, a criminal court in the starkest sense of the term, is based on the opposite principle. And that’s the reason for its existence.

When are we going to wake up, sheeple ? 

By John Kaminski

https://therebel.org/kaminski  http://johnkaminski.info 

Will we ever be able to see how our government deliberately turns our joyous days into tragedies, and now has advanced its criminality into killing innocent people as part of a drill to show us why we have to be frisked, molested or irradiated at every public event we attend? 

It's not exactly new stuff, this Boston Massacre Marathon Drill. For those who still haven't gotten the message, the Boston Police have admitted and numerous witnesses have observed that before the bombs that killed and maimed hundreds of happy observers of an innocent road race that the authorities were conducting an anti-terror drill during the race. 

The bombs that went off on that sunny, happy spring afternoon prove beyond doubt — and once again, for the hundredth time — that it is our government that are the terrorists, and they're not out to protect us — they're out to kill us — and rob us and enslave us — while they demonstrate this demented need for security as they themselves create the terror. 

How many recent examples do you need? 

How about Sandy Hook and Aurora, two psyops that are riddled with questions the government will never answer?  

We don't really know if any of those human beings the cop-controlled media said were killed were actually killed at all, but we do know that if anyone actually was killed — like Adam Lanza and his mother — they were doubtless killed by cops posing as terrorists.  

We don't know if James Holmes actually killed anyone in that Colorado theater complex. We have certainly never seen him in a condition to kill a fly, never mind people. Drugged into a stupor and not permitted to explain what he knew to the public is all we've ever seen of him, with all of his history provided by our cop-friendly media. 

Anybody who was killed in these so-called terror events was killed by cops, just as so many innocent people are murdered these days by these rampaging thugs in uniforms. 

The so-called Sandy Hook massacre was clearly a psyop. A top ranking cop even came out and said anybody who challenges the official version of events could be put in jail, verifying the lies he was spewing. They switched the license plate on the mysterious red van and attached it to Adam Lanza's Honda. Why would they do that, except to cover up their crimes? 

But this kind of deception is not exactly new stuff.  

In fact, when you look closely at these phenomena — all of American history, at least throughout the 20th century and probably longer than that— is exactly the same kind of false flag operation, emotionally blackmailing the populace into something they don't want to do that is not in their best interests. 

Think about this, people. Think about the string of catastrophes that have plagued the public mind and diminished the public's health in recent memory. 

Hurricane Sandy? First storm you ever saw with an uncanny S-turn in the worst possible location precisely predicted five days in advance. 

And then think back to Hurricane Katrina, when they had to bomb the levies to get the necessary disastrous effect. 

The Gulf Oil Spill, on which the same people who run the government made billions by betting the disaster would happen. 

Or the crotch bomber and the shoe bomber, and the prosecution of drugged and duped drifters that led us to getting cancer or being sexually molested at airports and other public venues. 

The Boston Marathon Massacre is the next step in this adventure. Now we'll have to be groped — "to protect the public" — at every public event we attend. 

We all are tempted to believe that these false flag psyop events are some kind of new phenomenon. Oh, the feckless, badly educated masses consider them to be real enough, and consequently believe what the government tells them, which makes them want to go out and shoot the nearest Muslim, or their next door neighbor who talks about the Second Amendment. 

But this activity is not new. It is the essence of American history — leaders foisting a scam on all of us because they have received giant bribes to do so. 

The Boston Marathon Massacre stands as merely the latest in a seemingly endless series of deceptions that stretches back through time — Aurora, Sandy Hook, and "killing" Osama bin Laden, the mere mention of whom takes us back to the granddaddy of all American political lies, the 9/11 massacre, which our government refused to let us investigate authentically because it was the trigger that led to the needless deaths of millions of people, which our government wanted to happen. 

This is perhaps the most stunning example ever of cops posing as terrorists, and as we can adduce from the events on Boylston Street in Boston on Patriots Day, continues today stronger than ever. 

Will we ever wake up and see the spreading scam for what it is? 

When you put everything into context and take the wider view — the biotech food, the toxic geoengineering, the mind-dulling fluoride, the carcinogenic radiation, the poison medicine, the legal system that is a cross between the Mafia and an African tribe of cannibals, a school system with all the relevance of a daytime TV soap opera, and a media absolutely uncritical of our killer government, the answer is clearly no — we will not wake up, even as we know we are perishing by the minute. 

"The Big Sleep" is the title of a 1939 mystery novel by Raymond Chandler and a euphemism for death. Full of characters who hide their ulterior motives and kill anyone to advance their warped goals, it is a condition that engulfs us today. 

The only way the world can escape this imposed amnesia, already so well advanced throughout the world, is to immediately evict and execute all those elected officials who continue to participate in this colossally big lie, who willingly assist in this gigantic terror hoax as a way to get temporarily rich in the deepening twilight of humanity's slide toward oblivion and extinction. 

Enforcing bogus laws, planting evidence, and intimidating the innocent, the cops are today's terrorists, and the dupes they deceive into the taking the fall are you and me, and all the other millions of oblivious stooges who refuse to see what they're doing. 


A World Without Capitalists Is Necessary



by Frank Scott

The unemployment rate in the USA is down to just over 8%. This is evidence that we are in a recovery from a recession. But that rate is actually higher than it was when this particular recession began.

The patient’s temperature has gone up, a sure sign that the patient is getting better. Huh ? 


Living under the rules of a profit and loss religion in a market church controlled by private clergy, almost anything negative can be made to sound positive, especially to those who have not yet felt the full impact of a disintegrating political economy. But those who are experiencing its worst aspects find no relief in academic jargon about structural or cyclical problems , stagnation , supply/demand curves, unemployment blips and market equilibrium. None of this helps them find jobs or borrow enough money to pay their rent, mortgage, food bills or education loans. And as those people are not only in the USA but in the rest of the world, the global nature of the problem makes it more clear that a solution is far beyond a particular nation state and concerns all of humanity.


An old admonition to act local but think global has come to mean far more than was originally intended. Then it had almost nothing to do with economics but now, if we don’t think and act economically we may assure failure for the planet and all its inhabitants. That’s us, whatever  market terminology may be used to hide that  fact behind national, racial, religious or other divisive identity group labels that help keep power in minority hands. And that minority is doing better than ever, in the short run, amassing more power and money than any past godlike royalty in what were supposed to have been more primitive societies. How much has really changed since ancient times when peasants and slaves were ground underfoot so that royal families and their wealthy sponsors could live lives of luxury ? Not much, in essence, though the material standard of living for workers became  what was called middle class and assured far more material comfort than previous generations of common people enjoyed. That lasted until the present breakdown began decreasing the income of more people at a faster rate so that the wealth of less people could increase at a greater rate.


What kind of system is this ? This kind:


If people are murdered in wars, that is good for the weapons business. If illness and disease run rampant that is good for the medical business. If natural disaster ravages communities and kills people, that is good for the construction industry and the burial business. Such are the realities of the cold blooded economics by which the people of the world have been organized for hundreds of years. A profit  for one always means a loss for many. The idea of keeping people healthy, safe, secure and alive is reduced to the private force of doing so only if they are able to create profits for those selling health, safety, security and life itself to the highest bidder in the market. If we can’t afford to buy those things and charity does not exist for us, we can just drop dead.


Millions of us do, and not only in bloody wars which profit the war makers. Many of us starve for lack of food while others have to go on diets because they eat so much. Many of us sleep in doorways, on the street or under bridges, while dogs and cats have their own rooms in comfortable homes. None of this happens because of individuals who are thoughtless or cold hearted or murderous, although such do exist. But in a system which dictates that profit must be created in a market sale, the owner of a private firm that makes band aids can be the nicest person on earth but still only profit and prosper if lots of people are bleeding. The social concept of doing all that is possible to avoid bleeding would be terrible for his private business. That is the case for every single human endeavor in the capital dominated religious belief system of the market, an anti-human, anti-social core of political economics that is threatening the future of all people all over the world. 


Criticism and rebellion to such injustice is the history of humanity but today it is growing far beyond the national minorities previously involved in such struggle. People organized to obey authority, work for others to survive, live in physical poverty or shop in moral poverty and vote for employees of wealthy rulers when allowed to and call it democracy, have remained unorganizable for the kind of change now necessary for the survival of humanity. But as the critical conditions grow worse, new methods of communication among the people are helping bring more rebellious response to this old order of great wealth for the few at cost of crippling poverty and debt for the many.


Under the threat of potential social collapse, environmental destruction and radical revolution, those who reap the greatest profits are exploiting, ravaging and murdering at insane rates in mindless desperation to maintain their power and wealth. That cannot continue and is no longer tolerable to billions of human beings nor the planet’s natural support system.


All over the world of capitalist anti-social democracy, the collapsing  structure has brought about calls for austerity from the rulers and their paid minions in government. This means further losses absorbed by the majority so that even greater profits can accrue to ruling minorities. Establishment philosophers of mass culture operating through corporate media still have enormous impact as they explain why the present reality is all that exists and must be experienced without substantial question. But when increasingly painful economic conditions for more people combine with increasingly dangerous conditions for much of the natural environment, the complex of events called material reality take on a new meaning well understood by growing numbers who face that reality in all its harshness and are less influenced by misinformation, propaganda and economic fairy tales.


Thus, many world citizens, even while their governing powers continue representing capital, wars and injustice, are rejecting the ugly burdens forced on them by their rich overlords. Elections in some places are small indications of change but far more indicative than the voting process which is still under the control of capital, are the rising multitudes all over the world all aiming for the same goal: a new world based on democratic power exercised by people taking action as members of the one and only human race and not simply as parties, religions, sects, cults or other labeled divisions which serve to keep minorities in control of majority created wealth.


Those tiny minorities are the capitalists who somehow own the fantastic wealth produced by enormous majorities of previously divided people. The divisions still exist and the power still is in the hands of those minorities whose days may be numbered, but so are those of humanity as well if action is not taken to create the world of democratic equality which has been the stuff of wishes and dreams but must become reality.


Or else.

Doomsayers and doubters are in abundance and are to be expected, even when they are not on the payroll of the ruling minority. It’s easy to look at the state of the world and surrender to present reality. But that is only possible for those not  yet suffering the ever increasing misfortune of dependence on a political economics of profit  for a few through loss, pain and misery for most. It is not just time for social change activists but for all citizens of the world’s 99% to heed the words quoted at the beginning. An end to the reign of minority capitalism is necessary to save the earth and all its people so that we can begin a human society offering hope for all and not just some.


Netanyahu Says War is Peace


by Stephen Lendman – mathaba.net, 09.11.2012

He sounds like Obama. He has delusions of Big Brother. He's turning Israel into Oceania. He believes freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength. Rogue leaders think and govern that way. 

Netanyahu's one of the worst. Reelect him and he may destroy the Middle East and Israel with it. In January, Israelis have their say. They can banish this menace and be done with him. 

Don't bet they'll do the right thing. They're almost as out of touch with reality as Americans. They're also indifferent and dismissive about threats to their welfare. 

People who do little or nothing to protect themselves against rogue governments lose freedom and security. They're also easy propaganda targets.

On October 30, Haaretz headlined "Netanyahu: Israeli strike on Iran nuclear plants will only serve to calm Mideast," saying:

Destabilization won't happen, he claimed. How so, he didn't explain. He makes stuff up. Israelis smart enough to know better believe it.

"Five minutes after (an attack), contrary to what the skeptics say, I think a feeling of relief will spread across the region," he claimed. 

"Iran isn't popular in the Arab world, far from it. Some governments in the region, as well as their citizens, have understood that a nuclear-armed Iran would be dangerous for them, not just for Israel."

He wants people to forget that over 100 participating NAM nations convened in Tehran. Doing so expressed support. Perhaps they're tired of Israel and Western nations targeting Iran unfairly. 

Attacking the Islamic Republic now perhaps would engender world wrath. Israel's security would be jeopardized. Washington may make more enemies by partnering in a blatantly illegal act. Don't think the wrong thing won't happen. Odds favor war, not peace.

NAM's final communique opposed it. It contained around 700 clauses. Topics addressed included: 

• opposition to the misuse of human rights;

• global nuclear disarmament; 

• opposition to racism and Islamophobia;

• support for Iran's peaceful nuclear program;

• opposition to US sanctions;

• opposition to outside interference in Syria's internal affairs;

• support for national sovereignty; and

• solidarity with and support for Palestinian rights.

Israel and America are on the wrong side of reality. Together they menace humanity. Iran threatens no one. Its nuclear program is peaceful. Its neighbors know it. So do American, European, and Israeli leaders. Admitting it would undermine their regime change agenda.

Netanyahu's world vision is megalomaniacal. He's pushing Washington to partner in attacking Iran. Odds favor it. Obama, Romney and party leaders pledge unabashed support for Israel.

It's been steadfast for decades. Call it a special relationship from hell. At issue is how much longer.

On many vital issues, the Israeli tail wags the US dog. What benefits Israel strategically doesn't always help America. Increasingly, Israel is more liability than ally. It's time Washington recognized reality and cut the cord.

James Petras once said "(t)he US-Israeli relationship is the first in modern history in which the imperial country covers up a deliberate major military assault by a supposed ally."

He referred to the 1967 USS Liberty attack. Israel bombed and strafed it. Dozens of US seamen were killed. Around 170 were wounded. The vessel was heavily damaged. Israel got away with murder. It wasn't the first or last time.

From then to now, the relationship strengthened. Today more than ever it threatens world peace. Media scoundrels conceal it. It's time to reveal what's been denied too long. It's time to cut ties and move on.

Immanuel Wallerstein sees it coming. Since at least 1967, he said:

"Support for Israel in every possible way has been a centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy….Few dare challenge it."

"But the 'few' are beginning to get more open support from military figures, who suggest that Israel’s politics are dangerous in terms of U.S. military interests."

"Will the pervasive support of Israel continue unabated in the coming decade or two? I doubt it. Israel may be the last of U.S. emotional commitments to fade. But fade it almost surely will."

Only the fullness of time will reveal when. It won't surprise other Israeli analysts when it happens. They predict the same thing. So do thoughtful Israeli leaders.

With electoral priorities in mind, Netanyahu claims an Iranian threat for political advantage. Fear is a powerful motivator. It works every time. 

Few take the trouble to learn what's true or false. Lemming Israeli voters may buy NetanyahuSpeak and reelect him. They'll be impressed if he firms up Western support. 

At the same time, they oppose war on Iran, at least unilaterally. Propaganda repeated ad nauseam usually changes opinions. It's in low gear now. Expect it revving up post-Israeli elections. 

War next year may happen. Tehran expects it. It's ready to respond in kind. Some believe Israel's October 24 attack on a Khartoum arms factory was prelude to attacking Iran. 

The distance from Southern Israel to the Sudanese capital is about the same as to Iran's Natanz and Fordo facilities - about 1,800 km.

London's Sunday Times said eight Israeli F-151 planes carried out the raid. Other reports said four planes. Sudan's Information Minister, Ahmed Bilal Osman, said: "The sophisticated warplanes and weapons used in the attack are available to no country in the region except Israel."

Israeli aircraft struck the facility. It was heavily damaged or destroyed. Sudan blamed Israel. IDF missile debris was identified. Israeli officials refused comment.

Sudan reserved the right to retaliate. Mossad-connected DEBKAfile (DF) claims the plant produced Iranian surface-to-surface Shehab missiles. 

It said Israel's "Air Force has a long record of preemptive attacks (on) an enemy’s long-range missiles in the early stages of a conflict."

Saying so perhaps suggests something big is planned. DF said high-ranking Iranian military officials inspected the damage. Iran's Revolutionary Guards know much about Israel's ability to strike short or long-range. If, in fact, they're in Sudan, they may learn more.

Satellite images confirm an air strike. Large craters were visible. Sudan's Yarmouk military complex was targeted. Allegedly missiles produced for Iran were destroyed.

Israel claims Sudan supplies Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas with weapons. Netanyahu is committed to confrontation over diplomacy. 

He wages daily war on Palestine. If reelected, expect the worst against Iran. Uniting with Avigdor Lieberman makes it more likely.


Bastard Obama wants state-sponsored murder legalized

By Stephen Lendman – mathaba.net

“Democrat” Obama constitutes elevation of murders to a higher level. He wants more evil. He accelerated work to develop explicit rules for the targeted killings of “terrorists” by unmanned drones, he wants standards and procedures established.

In other words, he wants murder legalized. Washington designates anti-war/imperial opponents "terrorists." He wants new rules giving him clear authority to murder them. 

Israel designates Palestinians wanting to live free from occupation and state terror the same way. Rogue states operate that way.

Obama wants new standards in place. He wants cover for governing illegally. He wants fundamental US and international laws overridden. He wants tyrannical authority.

He wants final say. He wants diktat power to be the last word. He wants to be judge, jury and executioner. He wants it codified and made legal.

Times writer Scott Shane earlier called drone killings an effective "war on terror" policy. He's comfortable about permitting what US and international laws prohibit.

His view differs marginally from Times editorial policy. Last May, The Times headlined "Too Much Power for a President," saying:

Obama thinks "the shadow war on terrorism gives (him) the power to choose targets for assassination, including Americans, without any oversight." That policy "is very troubling."

Times editors don't oppose drone killings. They're wary about one person having diktat power to order them. They're mainly concerned about Americans. Other people matter less. US citizens deserve due process, they said. 

Apparently they believe Americans are more equal than others. At the same time, they're concerned about a "perpetual war on terror (permitting) lethal force against anyone" for any reason.

Times policy stopped short of drawing inviolable red lines. Murder is illegal. US and international laws are inviolable. They're clear and unequivocal. Times editors tried having it both ways.

On the one hand, they said:

"A unilateral campaign of death in untenable."

On the other, they added:

Obama "should publish clear guidelines for targeting to be carried out by nonpoliticians, making assassination truly a last resort, and allow an outside court to review the evidence before placing Americans on a kill list."

Legitimate courts don't pronounce death sentences without trials, proper legal representation, due process, habeas rights, and overall judicial fairness. 

Maybe Times editors forgot.

Internal discussions continue, said Shane, about whether remote-control killing should be freely exercised or used as a last resort against designated enemies. He also ignored fundamental rule of law principles.

Spurning them constitutes tyrannical governance. Failure to explain what's too fundamental to disregard makes editors and journalists complicit. 

Media scoundrels support America's worst crimes of war and against humanity. Aggressive wars are cheerled. Enormous numbers are slaughtered. Retail killing does it selectively. Murder is still murder.

Extrajudicial killing by any means is lawless. Leaders governing this way are tyrants. They should be outed, condemned, and punished.

Remote-control drone killings are especially troublesome. A report jointly prepared by Stanford University's International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic (SU) and New York University School of Law's Global Justice Clinic (NYU) titled "Living Under Drones" explained.

Drone killings are indiscriminate. Nameless, faceless victims are murdered. Most are noncombatants. They threaten no one. Many are women and children.

Legal experts say drone killings outside war theaters set a dangerous precedent. Claims about making America safer are false. 

Evidence shows only 2% of victims are high-level combatants. Collateral killings facilitate anti-American recruitment.

SU/NYU's report said Washington must conduct "a fundamental re-evaluation of current targeted killing practices, taking into account all available evidence, the concerns of various stakeholders, and the short and long-term costs and benefits."

A "significant rethinking (is) long overdue." Policy makers can't ignore civilian harm and counterproductive impacts much longer.

Perhaps what's happening abroad is planned for America. On February 3, the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (HR 658) cleared both houses of Congress after differences between Senate and House versions were resolved. On February 14, Obama signed it into law.

It authorizes domestic drone spying under provisions to test and license commercial drones by 2015. Estimates of up to 30,000 UAVs could overfly America by 2020.

Privacy issues are at stake. Much greater ones could follow. Targeted killing could be universally ordered. US communities could become as unsafe as foreign ones. 

Once policies head down a slippery slope, anything can follow. Despots solidify power this way. Post-9/11 police state laws threaten Americans.

In 2010, "unlawful enemy combatants" became "unprivileged enemy belligerents." Language changed but not intent or lawlessness.

In 2011, by executive order, Obama authorized indefinite detentions and military commission trials for anyone he designated for any reason or none at all. Americans are as vulnerable as aliens. 

Provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) hardened executive power. They authorize military arrests and imprisonment with or without charges. Everyone, including US citizens, is vulnerable. 

The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) called NDAA authorization "one of the greatest expansions of executive power in our nation's history, allowing the government to lock up citizens and non-citizens without the right to fair trials."

Presidents now have unchecked authority to arrest, interrogate and indefinitely detain law-abiding citizens if accused of potentially posing a threat.

US military personnel are authorized to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone globally, including US citizens. No one's safe anywhere. 

Due process, civil protections, and judicial fairness are null and void. Presidents may order anyone arrested and imprisoned for life without charge or trial.

Special Forces Death squads and CIA-operated drones kill designated aliens and US citizens abroad. They're targeted and murdered for any reason or none at all.

Summary judgment means no arrests. No Miranda rights. No due process. No habeas protection. No trial. Just death by presidential diktat. Obama decides who lives or dies. 

Anyone called Al Qaeda or accused of terrorist connections gets marked for death. Kill lists compile names. Obama's "disposition matrix" includes terror suspects, covert plans to kill them, and in some cases sealed indictments and/or extradition requests. 

Obama has final say. Suspects are guilty by accusation.

Counterterrorism adviser John Brennan functions as his maestro of murder. He collaborates on who lives or dies. Innocence is no defense. Inviolable laws don't protect.

Advancing America's imperium alone matters. Human lives, democratic values, and fundamental fairness don't count. Anything goes is policy. Obama wants it codified and made legal. Imagine what's ahead in term two.


Al-Qaida More Established in Libya Under U.S. War Against Democracy


At U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Dennis Kucinich questions new U.S. ambassador who said he lacks intelligence on Libya, confirming his lack of expertise on Libya, while he was unable to answer any of the important questions put to him...


"The presence of Al-Qaida grows in Libya every day, they're certainly more established than we are", Lt. Col. Wood told the Committee in answer to Dennis Kucinich question as to whether Al-Qaida is more established in Libya since the unwarranted U.S. war against Libya.

Lt. Col. Andrew Wood is a Utah National Guardsman who was "leading a security team" in Libya until August and is one of those who complained to the U.S. State Department about its lack of willingness to provide more security because it would send the wrong political statement, i.e. that the U.S.-led war was not at all welcomed by Libyans.

In spite of the repeated requests by U.S. officials to Hilary Clinton's State Department, the U.S. regime figures including Vice President Biden continue to deny any awareness of such calls for help coming from the U.S. agents.

The statements came after the U.S. State Department official Kennedy said he could not answer the question as "he lacks intelligence", a fact which was confirmed in front of the Committee. Kennedy said he believe that security measures in place at the "embassy" were sufficient.

The terrorist sponsor "ambassador" Stevens, however, did not ask for more U.S. troops, and commented that Benghazi officials believed the city was becoming safer, towing the U.S. State Department political line which was devoid of any reality.

Kennedy also could not give an answer to the question of how many Surface-to-Air Missiles capable of shooting down civilian airliners are present in Libya. Another analyst was able to confirm that there are 10,000 to 20,000 SAM's unaccounted for in Libya that can shoot down any aircraft in the region.

Representative Kucinich had 
given a speech confirming that Libya was stable and peaceful prior to the unwarranted U.S.-led war against Libya and the suspension of the Libyan Jamahiriya direct participatory democracy.

His speech came in response to the unlawful U.S. ambassador Kennedy who had said that U.S. values and interests are at stake in Libya. "Really!?" Kucinich retorted, saying that anyone would have thought that the U.S. would have learned the lessons of over 10 years war in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere and the consequences of U.S. intervention.

He said those consequences are increased anti-U.S. militancy and activities world wide. He said that the U.S. Congress had done nothing to stop these many wars.

Kennedy replaced the previous unlawful U.S. ambassador who along with three other U.S. agents supporting the overthrow of democracy, socialism, peace, stability and justice in Libya, was returned to the U.S. in a coffin.

The U.S. has since attempted to pin the blame on anyone other than the Libyan resistance which is waging Jihad against the occupation of the country by proxy of heretics, criminals, stray dogs and rats, in the service of their foreign masters who wish to again have unfettered access to steal Africa's resources.

Kucinich confirmed that the way to stop the deaths of U.S. ambassadors is to stop U.S. interventions in other countries.

When the US security personnel were evacuated after the events of September 11, 2012, the occupation regime's U.S. puppet and later world's shortest serving Prime Minister Mustafa Abushagour told U.S. media: 'We were surprised by the numbers of Americans who were at the airport. We have no problem with intelligence sharing or gathering, but our sovereignty is also key.' 

At that point many more people were awoken to the extent of the integration between the large numbers of US intelligence and the competing militias in Benghazi which blew wide open these facts, as well as their own political puppets in Tripoli being kept in the dark, which further weakened their position in attempting to hold on to power.

The Hearing before Congress failed to bring out the important role of the U.S. intelligence agents in Libya in the coordination of the present war in Syria using the same Al-Qaida mercenaries under the control of the C.I.A.

Now there are at least 1,700 militia groups attempting to rule the country with each neighbourhood dominated by a faction that went into the business of using weapons as a means of gaining access to resources. After the death of "Ambassador" Stevens, US citizens were alerted to the existence of what the State Department called 'security incidents.' But the 230 'security incidents' over the past year were the tip of the iceberg of the massive destabilization and killings that had occurred as the Libyan resistance mounted against the terrorist regime's militia.

Black skinned Libyans from Tawergha were expelled from their community and more than 30,000 displaced. Even the usual spokespersons for Western imperial missions had to speak out as pro-U.S. Human Rights Watch joined in the condemnation of the rule of the militias. Human Rights Watch brought out a 'Report Rule of Law or Rule of Militias' bringing into sharper focus some of the outstanding questions of the role of these armed marauders all over Libya.

In June one of the Qaddafi loyalist militia took over the Tripoli airport in full view of European airlines flights which were delayed and stuck on the tarmac during the incident.

With Benghazi separated from the Tripoli occupation regime, oil companies have been competing to establish deals and presence there, and it was in this context that Stevens had gone to Benghazi to negotiate quiet oil deals for his backers away from public scrutiny. 

As noted by analyst 
Horace Campbell:

US oil companies did not want to be left behind in this new insensate struggle, hence US diplomatic efforts were now directed at Benghazi. Christopher Stevens had been appointed ambassador of the United States to Libya in January 2012 and arrived in Tripoli in May. When the uprisings had started in February 2011 and the French philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy was going into Benghazi to mobilize support for French interests, Chris Stevens was one of the first US diplomatic personnel to be on the ground in Benghazi.

He had served as a 'Special Representative' to the Libyan Transitional National Council from March 2011 to November 2011 during the NATO intervention. Prior to this period he had served as the Deputy Chief of Mission in Libya from 2007 to 2009. At that time, Stevens described Gaddafi as an 'engaging and charming interlocutor' as well as a 'strong partner in the war against terrorism.'


Chris Stevens belonged to that section of the US Department of State that was very knowledgeable about the movements of militia members between Benghazi, Libya, and the current war against the Assad regime in Syria. Libyan Islamists from the Eastern region comprise the largest single component of the 'foreign fighters' who are playing an ever more dominant role in the war being waged in Syria with the aim of toppling the government of President Assad. According to some estimates, they comprise anywhere from 1,200 to 1,500 of approximately 3,500 fighters who have been infiltrated into Syria from as far away as Chechnya and Pakistan.


The purpose of Wednesday's hearing of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee was to examine security lapses that led to the killing in Benghazi last month of the US ambassador and three others. What this hearing confirmed was what many knew; that there was no real 'consulate' in Benghazi, but a vast intelligence and private contractors web for the CIA and the oil companies. It was the testament of Charlene Lamb before Congress that gave away the fact that the 'facility' in Benghazi where Christopher Stevens and three others lost their lives was not a diplomatic facility.


The events surrounding the death of Ambassador Stevens exposed the USA in Libya at a number of levels. First, the role of Stevens exposed the hypocrisy of the so called 'war on terror'. Second, the evidence pointed to the integration between US intelligence and the militias. In the testimony before Congress, Charlene Lamb told US law makers that the intelligence compound depended on the militia in Benghazi known as the 17th February Brigade.


Lamb, Deputy Assistant Secretary State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security, told Congress on October 10 that in terms of armed security personnel, there were five Diplomatic Security agents on the compound on September11. 'There were also three members of the Libyan 17th February Brigade' - a reference to the Libyans hired to guard the American compound.

The third level was the jockeying between French, British, Italian and US oil companies over political dominance in Benghazi. Traditionally, the Italians had been a force on the ground in Libya but during the NATO operations French, British and WE operatives muscled out the Italians as junior partners in the imperial operation.


As the diary of Ambassador Stevens showed, he was opposed to the presence of official State Department personnel because of the integration of the private contractors, the intelligence operatives and the militias. Earlier in June there had been an attack on the intelligence facility that was called a 'consulate,' a June 6 bomb attack on the Benghazi consulate, a June 11 rocket-propelled grenade attack on a convoy carrying Britain's ambassador to Libya, and an August 27 State Department travel warning noting the threat of car bombings and assassinations in Tripoli and Benghazi. However, despite these attacks Stevens argued to the State Department Bureau of Diplomatic Security that the matter of security should not be entrusted in the hands the Marines who usually guarded US diplomatic establishments.

Stevens took this decision to 'show faith in Libya's new leaders,' according to the Wall Street Journal, which wrote: 'Officials say Mr Stevens personally advised against having Marines posted at the embassy in Tripoli, apparently to avoid a militarized US presence.'


The operations of the CIA in Libya had backfired. The plan of the Republicans to make political capital out of this incident had backfired and the entire world was brought closer to the multiple roles of the US military, private contractors, intelligence operatives and oil companies in Libya.

The number of CIA operatives in Benghazi was also a revelation to the 'provisional' government in Libya. When the US evacuated their personnel from Benghazi, the Libyans were surprised and wanted greater accountability from the US about their operations. However, for the US intelligence community, the major question was damage control.

'It's a catastrophic intelligence loss,' a US official who had been stationed in Libya told the New York Times. 'We got our eyes poked out.' - Source: AllAfrica.com


Prior to the war on Libya, Al-Qaida was non-existent in the country with its few supporters under lock and key and Libya was the first country to place Osama Ben Laden Inc. on an Interpol wanted list, seeking for his arrest. However, Bin Laden and his (so called) "Al-Qaida" were just C.I.A. assets...

Predicting Protracted Hard Times


America under either party is no fit place to live in. Expect the worst of times ahead. Duopoly power plans it. On November 6, vote independent or stay home...

by Stephen Lendman

It works the same way every time. Bad policies assure bad results. Prioritizing short-term profits jeopardizes long-term gains. 

Force-fed austerity when stimulus is needed is madness. So is harming economies, communities, and ordinary people to save banks. 

Chickens eventually come home to roost. We'll know when they arrive. Perhaps it'll be sooner than imagined.

Money power in private hands assures it. The Fed and other major central banks bear full responsibility for monetary madness. 

The late Bob Chapman warned about easy money, market manipulation, reckless speculation, counterproductive fixes, and unsustainable debt causing today's crisis.

He predicted an eventual house of cards collapse. Only its timing remained uncertain. He's not around to see what won't be pleasant when it arrives.

It's too early to know for sure, but monetizing debt/excess money printing may have hit a wall. One economist suggests Bernanke can't do much more in the mortgage market.

He's harming banks more now than helping them. Net interest margins "face the mother of all squeezes." The Fed's beginning to lose influence.

Production is down. Hiring plans are weakening. Layoff announcements suggest many more to come. Main Street America has been in Depression since 2008. Reality for most people is dire. Things aren't improving. They're worsening.

On October 17, economist Paul Craig Roberts headlined "America RIP: Death of the Middle Class, Offshoring of American Jobs," saying:

New millennium opportunity "disappeared. Middle class jobs are scarce. Indeed, jobs of any kind are" hard to get. Most are low wage, few or no benefit ones. Households need two or more to get by.

"The lack of jobs, especially high value-added, high productivity jobs, is the reason real median household income has declined and the distribution of income has worsened. Without rising real household income, there cannot be a consumer economy."

Roberts repeated his earlier prediction that America is being third-worldized. A decade ago he expected it in 20 years. It might arrive sooner than he thought.

The combination of militarism and permanent wars, prioritizing imperial dominance, and shifting wealth mindlessly to corporate favorites and America's 1% at the expense of people needs assures a future best lived elsewhere. "A country so poorly led can do nothing but decline."

What about an entire continent cratering. Financial analyst Graham Summers explained what few of his peers will touch. European banking problems are huge. 

The Eurozone's largest banks are insolvent. On average, they're leveraged 26 - 1. Lehman was at 30 - 1 when it collapsed.

European nations are bankrupt. Debt to GDP including unfunded liabilities is 875% for Greece, 549% for France, 418% for Germany, 364% for Italy, and 244% for Spain.

For the EU overall it's 434%. For America it's 400%. "(B)ankrupt banks (operate) in bankrupt countries," says Graham. "The entire financial system is based on the assumption that European sovereign bonds are still risk free."

"So you have bankrupt nations selling bonds to insolvent banks, which then" lever 26 - 1. It's madness and ignored by mainstream observers.

Europe is doomed, believes Graham. It can't "get out of this mess unless the entire union (grows) at over 10% for a decade."

Now's the time to prepare for trouble, he stresses. Central banks may have no magic bullets left. They're scared to death but won't admit it.

He adds that Spain is way beyond saving. Collapse is coming. The euro is doomed. The EU will eventually break up. Reality may arrive within a few months or less after America's elections. It makes no difference who wins.

Neither party advocates growth stimulating policies. Bipartisan complicity assures worse times ahead. Why voters elect these scoundrels they'll have to explain. 

Other analysts also forecast impending market trouble. Some think 2008 will pale in comparison. The late Bob Chapman predicted it years ago. He said expect protracted/unprecedented hard times. Don't bet against him being right.

What's coming only time will tell. Hindsight provides the best insight. Advisor Perspectives Doug Short says prepare for up to a 51% financial market decline. 

Profits are being squeezed for the first time in three years. Revenues are on a similar glide path. Perhaps they're precursors of things to come.

Euro Pacific Capital's Peter Schiff says what happened in 2008 "wasn't the real crash." The "real (one) is coming."

Economist Robert Wiedemer warned about 2008. He's alerting people now to expect worse.

Financial author Harry Dent expects up to a 60% market decline. "We have the greatest debt bubble in history. We will see a worldwide downturn. And when you are in this type of recessionary environment stocks should be trading at five to seven times earnings."

Before the 2008 crash, hedge fund manager John Paulson made about $20 billion shorting the US housing market. Now he's betting heavily against the euro.

Investor Jim Rogers warns about an impending "Financial Armageddon." He expects it post-US elections. He's extremely critical of monetary madness. The world is "drowning in too much debt," he stresses.

The Fed, ECB and Bank of England bear most responsibility. They've abused their "license to print money."

America's $16 trillion debt comes to over $50,000 for every US citizen. "The solution to too much debt is not more debt. What would make me very excited is if a few people (in government) went bankrupt."

Obama and Germany's Merkel especially promote dangerous policies. They create an illusion of economic stability. In reality, they only buy time.

"Mrs. Merkle has an election next year. Mr. Obama has (one) in November. The Americans and the Germans - they want to do everything they can to hold the world up until after" electoral season ends.

"It's going to be bad after the next election." How bad remains to be seen. An influential economic team expects serious trouble. They discovered a "frightening pattern." It looks catastrophic.

According to Money Map Press chief investment strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, "What this pattern represents is a dangerous countdown clock that's quickly approaching zero. The resulting chaos is going to crush Americans."

Global economic trend forecaster Chris Martenson also suggests catastrophe, saying:

"We found an identical pattern in our debt, total credit market, and money supply that guarantees they're going to fail," he said. "This pattern is nearly the same as in any pyramid scheme, one that escalates exponentially fast before it collapses. Governments around the globe are chiefly responsible."

"And what's really disturbing about these findings is that the pattern isn't limited to our economy. We found the same catastrophic pattern in our energy, food, and water systems as well."

Everything could implode at the same time, he thinks. "Food, water, energy, money. Everything."

He also worries about America's debt level, saying:

"For 30 years - from the 1940s through the 1970s - our total credit market debt was moderate and entirely reasonable. But then in seven years, from 1970 to 1977, it quickly doubled." 

"And then it doubled again in seven more years. Then five years to double a third time. And then it doubled two more times after that." 

"Where we were sitting at a total credit market debt that was 158% larger than our GDP in the early 1940s….By 2011 that figure was 357%." It's now around 400% and rising.

Kent Moors is an energy expert. He advises world governments on energy-related matters. He also serves on two State Department energy task forces.

"Most frightening of all is how this exact same pattern keeps appearing in virtually every system critical to our society and way of life," he said.

"It's a pattern that's hard to see unless you understand the way a catastrophe like this gains traction. At first, it's almost impossible to perceive. Everything looks fine, just like in every pyramid scheme." 

"Yet the insidious growth of the virus keeps doubling in size, over and over again - in shorter and shorter periods of time - until it hits unsustainable levels. And it collapses the system."

Most Americans are uneasy but don't understand the true dangers they face. They never do until it hits them hard. For many it's irreversible. 

According to Fitz-Gerald:

"If our research is right, Americans will have to make some tough choices on how they'll go about surviving when basic necessities become nearly unaffordable and the economy becomes dangerously unstable."

"People need to begin to make preparations with their investments, retirement savings, and personal finances before it's too late."

Few do, and what works best isn't easy for most people to fathom. Worst still is too few have much, if anything, to sustain them.

On October 28, Global Research published "37 Facts About How Cruel This Economy Has Been to Millions of Desperate American Families."

It makes grim reading. Millions of households have few, if any, savings. The net worth of nearly one-third is "zero or less than zero." 

Poverty is rising exponentially. America's middle class is disappearing. Over "41% of all working age Americans are not working."

Labor force participation declined dramatically because jobs aren't available. Once unemployed longer-term, workers become non-persons. They're no longer counted in BLS employment surveys.

One-fourth of working Americans earns sub-poverty wages. America has the highest percentage of workers earning low pay than any other industrialized economy.

Costs are rising dramatically. Earnings haven't kept pace. Total US consumer debt rose 1,700% since 1971. Student loan indebtedness exceeds a trillion dollars. Millions of Americans can't afford to retire.

At the same time, homeless shelters and food banks can't keep up. Demand is growing at a time Washington, states, cities, and smaller communities provide less and plan more cuts.

Bad as things are now, they're getting worse. When public need keeps growing exponentially, government officials turn a blind eye. Where this ends, who knows. Expect much tougher times ahead.

Washington's duopoly doesn't care. Obama scorns human need. Romney matches him blow for blow. Both represent money controlled America. They serve its aristocracy.

It's corrupt, unprincipled, and contemptuous of democratic values. It preys on ordinary people callously for personal gain. Corporate empowerment, wealth and privilege alone matter. 

America under either party is no fit place to live in. Expect the worst of times ahead. Duopoly power plans it. On November 6, vote independent or stay home.

Chimps with machine guns



After watching this video, don't tell me there aren't animals who are smarter than humans. Which species would you prefer to have patrolling your neighborhood?

Just imagine the revenge the dead souls of animals might wreak on their human killers if they could. But surely they wouldn't, because they're animals, utterly purposeful and pragmatic, doing what they do because they do it in the grace of God's holy sunlight.

Whereas humans kill anything that moves, ever trying to scrub the shifting shadows from their own concocted dreams.

Sickness abounds in the world and in ourselves. It is in our nature to heal the sick — we don't need to be taught that. It's intrinsic, and all animals possess this trait. Team players in the sport of life. Somehow everything that lives knows there is only one species of baby, although some species go ahead and eat them anyway.

Each new invention takes us further and further away from ourselves. We define ourselves today in the context of the electronic conveniences that shape our behavior — always driving us apart and seldom bringing us together except through the interface of contracts or the sale of a prized toy.

Our abstractions have robbed us of our knowledge of ourselves. No longer able to build a house, skin a bear or even live a sensible life, we have been shorn of our very survival necessities. We traded them in for a big TV. 

Our connection to natural life has been severed by technological conveniences, made us flabby and unable to survive in the wild as any other animal does naturally and with mystic grace. That force we call God has given them everything they'll ever need for a fruitful life.

What every other animal on this planet can do, we cannot do — survive in the wild. 

We have been imprisoned by our own technological abstractions, and are poisoning the world.

Our contraptions and contrivances have trapped us in a paralyzing miasma — we're doomed to sucking on the big mechanical welfare teat forever! Because cunningly manipulated technology has made feeble slaves of us all, unable to care for ourselves even as we ingest the popular public products that hasten our demise.

I've long held the notion that the principal threats to our own survival are inside ourselves, miscellaneous misperceived boobytraps that have been installed in our brains, by people we would not really like to meet, people like Bernays and Kinsey and Bella Abzug, not to mention Pope Leo the Khazar and Rabbi Kook the Elder — who just turn your stomach when you think about what they've done.

So who are the real chimps now? The Americans, hands down. They've pissed away paradise trying to keep up with their neighbors, and now all are demented and bleeding on the spearpoints of the mass projected Jewish marketing of poisoned products.

You name it — it's poison. From petrochemical to nuclear to biotech to, now, neuronal nanomanipulation — all poisons — all meant to diminish us, for purposes of more convenient control, into minimally conscious reflexively conditioned droids — and frankly, I think most of us are pretty much in this condition already.

Fear the Flavenoid, baby! Eschew the Adderall.

Airport goons make molestation a way of life. Cops on steroids taze grandmothers. Doctors prescribe known poison, keep the real cancer treatments from the people they would cure. Kids worship our boys in uniform, which both helps and makes it worse when they come home dead.

The chimps are coming. Your life insurance premium just went up.

It's not the enlisted chimps we have to worry about — they're just trying to get a Green Card, free dental, and a college education. Although they will kill you to protect their investment because that's what they've been ordered to do by their Christian evangelical generals.

It's the hired chimps, that Blackwater bunch that is always changing its name... yes, it's the hired chimp spooks — and most especially the ones who are imported from somewhere else for specific tasks, because if your license plate lights up the wrong lights on the wrong switchboard, you could be blown to bits by a stone drone bone without additional notice in circumstances that are now becoming increasingly regular.

Think about this while you're waiting at your next traffic light.

This is the true Obamacare — to be blown away by a drone in heavy traffic.

Most important, it's the guys who hired the chimps who should be the constant focus of our investigations, the button pushers who hire the candidates with no verifiable history to inflict their rapacious pronouncements upon a perpetually puzzled populace. Wonder why that is no longer. It's the schools, who for a long time now have trained only chimps with machine guns.

Chimps with machine guns. A new nickname for the U.S. Army, as well as every cop in the country, all mindlessly taking orders from the people who are trying to destroy all nations rather than the ones who are trying to save them.

Chimps with machine guns. Dig it. Dig it deep. 

Let the soothing comfort of your patriotic security seep deep into your chemically compromised bones.

Don't wait for the light to change. It already has.


Predatory Capitalism Failed



by Stephen Lendman

Independent observers knew it long ago. Today's global economic crisis provides added confirmation. In 2008, a staunch champion of the system expressed second thoughts. More on him below.

An ideology based on inequality, injustice, exploitation, militarism, and imperial wars eventually self-destructs or gets pushed. 

Growing evidence in America and Europe show systemic unaddressed problems too grave to ignore. They remain so despite millions without jobs, savings, homes or futures.

Imagine nations governed by leaders letting crisis conditions fester. Imagine voters reelecting them despite demanding change. OWS aside, one day perhaps rage will replace apathy in America. The latest jobs report alone provides incentive enough to try and then some.

On May 4, the Labor Department reported 115,000 new jobs. It way overstated the true number. Official figures belie the dire state of things. At most, two-thirds the headline total were created. Even that's in doubt. 

Most were low-pay, part-time, or temp positions with few or no benefits. Decades ago, workers would have avoided them. Today, there's no choice.

The report also showed economic decline. Expect much worse ahead. In 2008, Main Street Americans experienced Depression. It rages today. Poverty's at record levels. Real unemployment approaches 1930s numbers. Dire conditions are worsening.

Announced job cuts are increasing. Hiring plans are down. Compared to year ago levels, they're off 80%. Income is stagnant for those lucky to have work. The private diffusion index measuring growth fell sharply month-over-month.

The unemployment rate decline reflects discouraged workers dropping out. They want jobs but can't find them. The Labor Department considers them non-persons. They're not counted to make official figures look better. 

Moreover, the broad based Household Survey showed employment dropping 169,000. It was the second consecutive monthly decline. The Labor Department uses a "population and payroll concept adjusted" calculation. Doing so tries to compare monthly payroll and household figures.

The measure plunged 495,000 in April after dropping 418,000 in March. The calculation represented the largest back-to-back decline since late 2009.

At 63.6%, America's labor force hit its lowest level since September 1981. Since then, population totals grew from 229 million to about 312 million today. The state of the nation today reflects lots of people facing few jobs, and no policy to create them.

The employment/population ratio stands at 58.4%. Alone, it represents a shocking testimony to failure. So do other data. Long-term unemployment remains near record levels. Credit deleveraging continues. Housing's in its worst ever depression. Prices keep falling. Inventories of unsold homes are huge. Foreclosures are at epidemic levels.

State and local downsizing continues. Personal income suffers. Conditions are bad and worsening.

On May 4, Pimco's Mohamed El-Erian headlined his Financial Times article "Confirmed: America's jobs crisis," saying:

"Friday’s US jobs data sound a warning that should be heard well beyond economists and market watchers."

Americans with jobs have poor ones. Wage growth is stagnant. Purchasing power can't keep up with inflation. For ordinary Americans, secular income headwinds blow at gale force strength.

Crisis conditions today make "a mockery of the published unemployment rate of 8.1 per cent....The economic implications are clear." At a time, Europe's recession deepens, America's declining.

Risks are increasing. A "potential (austerity caused) year-end 'fiscal cliff' (may) suck out some 4 per cent of GDP in purchasing power, and do so in a disorderly fashion."

Instead of addressing crisis conditions responsibly, political Washington campaigns for reelection, and plans huge domestic budget cuts when stimulus help is needed. 

Main Street Americans are pushed to the edge. Potential "social consequences" suggest "the possibility....of a lost generation."

Unemployed teenagers "face the risk of going from being unemployed to becoming unemployable." Today's reality is bleak. It reflects "a multi-faceted unemployment crisis that politicians, both in America and Europe, are failing to comprehend, unite around, and respond to."

"I worry greatly that facts on the ground will unfortunately warrant future analyses to be even more disheartening."

Alan Greenspan's Too Late to Matter Mea Culpa

As Fed chairman for nearly two decades (1987 - 2006), he engineered today's crisis. Some call him the Maestro of Misery for good reason. Those benefitting most sing his praises. In 2008, he had second thoughts.

A longtime Ayn Rand disciple, he strayed noticeably in October 2008 House testimony. Her libertarian views influenced his. She championed regulatory free markets. So did Greenspan. He practiced what she preached.

Perhaps House Oversight and Government Reform Committee members couldn't believe their ears. He acknowledged his worldview failure, saying:

"You know, that's precisely the reason I was shocked, because I have been going for 40 yeas or more with very considerable evidence that it was working exceptionally well."

While trying to have it both ways, he admitted his faith in regulatory free markets was shaken, saying:

"I made a mistake in presuming that the self-interests of organizations, specifically banks and others, were such as that they were best capable of protecting their own shareholders and their equity in the firms."

"The Federal Reserve had as good an economic organization as exists. If all those extraordinarily capable people were unable to foresee the development of this critical problem...we have to ask ourselves: Why is that? And the answer is that we're not smart enough as people. We just cannot see events that far in advance."

In his book "Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country" William Grieder called Greenspan one of "the most duplicitous figures to serve in modern American government." 

He used "his exalted status as economic wizard (to) regularly corrupt the political dialogue by sowing outrageously false impressions among gullible members of Congress and adoring financial reporters."

His ideology was hokum. Somehow he managed a Columbia doctorate without its dissertation requirement. His economic consulting firm flopped. It faced liquidation. He closed shop to join the Fed after serving earlier in the Reagan, Nixon and Ford administrations.

His background in government got him his job. His inability to forecast made him a perfect Fed choice. So did his reliability to serve monied interests over populist ones.

Saying he got it wrong after the fact hardly matters. Where was he when it counted. In 2006, Bernanke replaced him. He made a bad situation worse. Since 2008, he more than tripled the Fed's balance sheet from about 6% of GDP to 20%. 

His day of reckoning approaches. Perhaps in future congressional testimony, he'll address his own shortcomings. Doing it when it counts matters. After the fact turns memoirs into best-sellers. 

His cross to bear and Greenspan's could fill volumes. Millions their policies harmed won't line up to buy them. 

How can they? They're broke, on their own, out of luck, and unreceptive to hear defrocked Fed chairmen say they're sorry. If so, they'd have done it right in the first place.



This is a glaring example of what the power of the people is when they are united under a common and beneficial purpose... BRAVO FOR THE PEOPLE OF ICELAND!!... THE GREEKS ARE LOOKING AT THEIR SUCCESS and perhaps might mirror it....

World Run by International Loan Sharks/Banksters will not be a happy or secure world... That only a FEW on top should party while the others slave for them is not how it is meant to be... TAKE ICELAND'S PEOPLE'S SUCCESS as an EXAMPLE that can be well DONE...

Iceland’s Amazing Peaceful Revolution – Still Not in the News 

Iceland’s peaceful revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world.

Read details about Iceland’s wonderful social evolution at DailyKos, here . Another article is on Bloomberg.com 

ICELAND (GP) – No news from Iceland? Why? Last we heard, people were rising up and overthrowing the bankers. Then, no news on the television or newspapers for two years. What happened? Why won’t the papers and TV tell us how the bankers successfully crushed or minimized another rebellion? Because… THEY DIDN’T! This time, the people won.

The people of Iceland have overwhelmingly risen up and forced their government puppets of the banks to resign. Primary banks have been nationalized. The debt scam imposed by Great Britain and Holland money printers was declared null and void. A public assembly has been created to rewrite Iceland’s constitution.

The best part is, all of this happened without violence or bloodshed. A whole country’s revolution succeeded against powers that created the current global crisis without a shot being fired. A very good reason exists for the apparent failure of television and newspapers to provide any publicity on this unprecedented event: what would happen if the rest of the EU and the United States took this as an example?

The following is a summary of the facts:

2008 – The main bank of Iceland is nationalized.

The Krona, the currency of Iceland devaluates and the stock market halts. The country is in bankruptcy
2008 – Citizens rise up at Parliament and succeed in forcing the resignation of both the prime minister and the effective government. New elections are held.

Yet, the country remains in a bad economic situation. A Parliament act is passed to pay back 3,500 million Euros to Great Britain and Holland by the people of Iceland monthly during the next 15 years, with 5.5% interest.

2010 – The people of Iceland again take to the streets to demand a referendum. In January of 2010, the President of Iceland denies approval, instead announcing a popular vote on the matter by the people.
In March, a referendum and denial of payment is approved by popular vote of 93%. Meanwhile, government officials initiate an investigation to bring to justice those responsible for the crisis. Many high level executives and bankers are arrested. Interpol dictates an order to force all implicated parties to leave Iceland.

An assembly is elected to write a new constitution (based on the Denmark’s) to avoid entrapments of debt based currency foreign loans. 25 citizens are chosen — with no political affiliation — out of the 522 candidates. The only qualifications for candidacy are adulthood and the support of 30 people. The constitutional assembly started in February of 2011. It continues to present ‘carta magna’ from recommendations provided by various assemblies throughout the country. Ultimately, it must be approved by both the current Parliament and the one created through the next legislative election.

In summary of the Icelandic revolution, we saw: 

-resignation of the entire corrupt government of the country,

-referendum enabling the people to determine their own economic system -incarceration of responsible parties.

Have we been informed about this through the main stream media?
Has any political program on radio or TV commented on this? Not that I’ve seen. 

The Icelandic people have demonstrated a way to beat the international Money Printers and Controllers of information. The last thing entrenched Usurers would want is for you to think you could also free yourself from their grave chains....

Another Foiled False Flag


by Stephen Lendman

Wikipedia defines false or black flags as "covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities." 

"The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is: flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations and can be used during peace-time."

Big lies substitute for truth. Stories are fabricated. 
Media scoundrelspromote them. At issue is heightening fear for planned policies. Pretexts are needed for militarism, imperial wars, and homeland repression. If and when people learn they were duped, it's too late to matter.

It's an American tradition. Incidents are strategically timed. Innocent victims suffer. So does everyone living under heightened national security state conditions.

Threats are manufactured. States of emergency are declared. Rule of law principles are discarded. Unchallenged dominance alone matters. Wars on humanity follow. Big lies facilitate them. False flags play their part.

Here we go again. This one's a sequel. Perhaps Hollywood blockbusters will follow, first the original plot, then the latest. More on the earlier one below. 

On May 7, AP headlined "US: CIA thwarts new al-Qaida underwear bomb plot," saying:

Agents foiled "an ambitious plot by al-Qaida's affiliate in Yemen to destroy a US-bound airliner using a bomb with a sophisticated new design around the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden, The Associated Press has learned."

AP described an upgraded 
underwear bomb plot. Like the earlier one, it was "designed to be used in a passenger's underwear, but this time" US officials called it "more refined."

On May 7, the FBI issued a brief statement, saying:

"As a result of close cooperation with our security and intelligence partners overseas, an improvised explosive device (IED) designed to carry out a terrorist attack has been seized abroad." 

"The FBI currently has possession of the IED and is conducting technical and forensics analysis on it. Initial exploitation indicates that the device is very similar to IEDs that have been used previously by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in attempted terrorist attacks, including against aircraft and for targeted assassinations." 

"The device never presented a threat to public safety, and the US government is working closely with international partners to address associated concerns with the device." 

"We refer you to the Department of Homeland Security, including the Transportation Security Administration, regarding ongoing security measures to safeguard the American people and the traveling public."

The device contained no metal. It's not clear if body scanners could have detected it. Officials said an alleged Yemen-based bomber hadn't yet picked a target or bought plane tickets. CIA agents seized the device before he had a chance. The suspect wasn't identified.

learned of the plot earlier but agreed to White House and CIA requests to delay publishing because intelligence operations were ongoing.

On May 8, the White House and FBI confirmed AP's report. Deputy national security council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said Obama knew last month. "The disruption of the IED plot underscores the necessity of remaining vigilant against terrorism here and abroad," she said.

"While the president was assured that the device did not pose a threat to the public, he directed the department of homeland security and law enforcement and intelligence agencies to take whatever steps necessary to guard against this type of attack," she added.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesman Matt Chandler said:

The latest plot "demonstrates our adversaries' interest in targeting the aviation sector." Protective "layers" are thus used. 

They "include threat and vulnerability analysis, pre-screening and screening of passengers using the best available technology, random searches at airports, federal air marshal coverage, and additional security measures both seen and unseen."

"It's not clear who built the bomb," AP reported. Authorities "suspect it was the work of master bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri." A Saudi citizen, he's one of their most wanted. Earlier he was imprisoned and released.

He's reportedly in Yemen with his brother Abdullah. He's another Saudi most wanted. Washington claims they're both Al Qaeda connected. He's blamed for earlier bomb plots.

On March 24, 2011, the State Department included Ibrahim on its terrorist watch list. He's also on an Interpol Orange Notice one. It "warns police and other international organizations about potential threats from disguised weapons, parcel bombs, or other dangerous materials."

Washington considers Yemen strategically important. It's mostly for its location near the Horn of Africa on Saudi Arabia's southern border, the Red Sea, and Bab el- Mandeb strait. 

It's a key chokepoint separating Yemen from Eritrea. Around three million barrels of oil pass through it daily. The Gulf of Aden connects to the Indian Ocean. Since 2009, Obama waged drone war on the country. CIA and Special Forces operate on the ground. Death squads are deployed.

America's at war with Yemen without declaring it. Predator drones escalate killing. Media scoundrels say little. Yemen gets attention when foiled bomb plots are claimed. They're pretexts for stepped up measures there and at home. 

Washington's targets are global. US citizens share risks with foreign ones. Waging war on humanity leaves no one safe. Everyone everywhere is fair game. Any place could erupt in free-fire zone violence. Anyone can be accused of terrorism or conspiracy to commit it.

America's hegemonic ambitions threaten humanity. Too few at home understand. Public ignorance and indifference let Washington get away with murder. It's a global killing machine to remove all challenges.

The Earlier Underwear Bomber False Flag

It was fake like the sequel. In December 2009, US officials claimed Nigerian citizen Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab traveled to Yemen, got Al Qaeda training, and explosive PETN chemicals.

Supposedly he tried using them to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day. In fact, he was a fall guy for a joint
CIA/Mossad/India Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) false flag.

The same alliance staged coordinated 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. Dozens were killed and hundreds wounded. They also were behind former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's 2007 assassination. 

The same issue then remains US policy now. Destabilizing and balkanizing Pakistan is planned. It's also perhaps intended for Afghanistan and Libya. Iraq is already divided. Always it's for easier control and exploitation.

Abdulmutallab was a convenient patsy. He was used to facilitate America's war on Yemen. Britain denied him an entrance visa. His name was on a State Department terror watch list. 

Yet he wasn't on a No Fly List. He paid cash for a one-way ticket to Detroit, checked no luggage, had a US visa but no passport, and was helped onboard by a "well-dressed Indian" gentleman (a RAW agent) to facilitate Washington's scheme to use him as a convenient dupe.

His PETN was virtually harmless. It was technically deficient, failed to go off properly, and had fire cracker strength. Following the incident, Washington's war on Yemen escalated and enhanced airport screening began. Full body scanners the ACLU calls "virtual strip search(es)" are used. [

False flags create opportunities to advance America's 
imperium. They also facilitate its war on dissent. In May 2011, three key Patriot Act powers were extended for another four years. Little debate assured swift passage. As a result:

(1) Unlimited roving wiretaps continue unchecked.

(2) Section 215 pertains to alleged suspects. It authorizes government access to "any tangible item." They included financial records and transactions, student and medical records, phone conversations, emails, other Internet use, and whatever else Washington claims essential.

(3) Alleged suspect organizations and individuals can be surveilled, whether or not evidence links them to terrorism or complicity to commit it. In other words, police state powers to monitor anyone for any reason or none at all remain unchecked.

Racial profiling and waging war on Islam got boosts. Abdulmutallab benefitted Washington at his own expense. Expect the underwear bomb sequel to provide more. 

Washington will take full advantage. Perhaps Obama has another war in mind.

A Final Comment

On May 8, The New York Times headlined "Rare Double Agent Disrupted Bombing Plot, US says." 

Most likely it's double-dealing 
official lies and misreporting. According to Times-speak, a Saudi intelligence agent "infiltrated (a) terrorist group and volunteered for the mission, American and foreign officials said Tuesday."

Washington claims he provided an "innovative bomb" designed for "aviation attack." The Times reported the story without checking for reliability. If official sources say it, accounts follow true or false.

The agent is back in Saudi Arabia, The Times said. CIA agents were involved.

What's true or false isn't clear. What's certain is another false flag for reasons similar to previous ones. They repeat well-timed for strategic advantage. 

They're manufactured to look real. 
Media scoundrels headline them. Most people don't know they've been had. The scam repeats because it works. No wonder America gets away with murder and much more.


by Michel Chossudovsky

While the President and Commander in Chief of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama "celebrates" the first anniversary of the alleged death of bin Laden, the substantive issue as to WHO WAS OSAMA BIN LADEN remains unheralded.  (Remarks by President Obama in Address to the Nation from Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, see video at foot of article)

Through lies and fabrications --which he intends to use in his election campaign-- president Obama`s carefully scripted speech upholds a world of total fantasy, in which "bad guys" are lurking and "plotting acts of terror". Meanwhile, Islamic "jihadists" are said to be threatening Western civilization.  

Each and every statement in Obama's May 1st speech at Bagram Air Force base regarding the role of Al Qaeda is a fabrication: (below are excerpts from Obama's Remarks in italics, author's comments are indicated inside square brackets [ ] ):  

It was here, in Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden established a safe haven for his terrorist organization 

[Osama bin Laden was recruited by the CIA, Al Qaeda was set up with the support of the CIA. Osama's safe haven was protected by US intelligence] .

It was here, in Afghanistan, where al Qaeda brought new recruits, trained them, and plotted acts of terror.

[The Mujahideen were recruited and trained by the CIA. America's ally Saudi Arabia financed the Wahabbi  koranic schools, Ronald Reagan praised the Mujahideen as "Freedom Fighters". Unknown to the American public, the US spread the teachings of the "Islamic jihad" in textbooks "Made in America", developed at the University of Nebraska]

It was here, from within these borders, that al Qaeda launched the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 innocent men, women and children.

[Obama is referring to the tragic events of September 11 2001. To this date there is no evidence that Al Qaeda was involved in the 9/11 attacks. Moreover, confirmed by CBS News, on September 10, 2001 Osama bin Laden had been admitted to a Pakistani military hospital in Rawalpindi, courtesy of America's ally Pakistan. Did he coordinate the 9/11 attacks from his hospital bed?]

And so, 10 years ago, the United States and our allies went to war to make sure that al Qaeda could never again use this country to launch attacks against us.

[The 9/11 attacks was the justification for waging war on Afghanistan on the grounds of`"self defense". Afghanistan was said to be harboring Al Qaeda and was, therefore, complicit in an outright act of war against the USA.

The fact of the matter is that the Taliban government on two occasions in the weeks following 9/11 offered (through diplomatic channels) to hand over Osama bin Laden to the US Justice system. President George W. Bush refused the offer of the Taliban government, intimating that America "does not negotiate with terrorists". 

NATO went to war in support of the US, invoking Article Five of the Washington Treaty. The latter states that an "act of war" against one member of the Atlantic Alliance is considered "an act of war" against all members of NATO under the doctrine of collective security.]

Despite initial success, for a number of reasons, this war has taken longer than most anticipated. In 2002, bin Laden and his lieutenants escaped across the border and established safe haven in Pakistan. America spent nearly eight years fighting a different war in Iraq. And al Qaeda’s extremist allies within the Taliban have waged a brutal insurgency.

[The whereabouts of Osama bin Laden have always been known to US intelligence. President Obama conveys the illusion that US-NATO forces and their intelligence operatives could not find bin Laden. In the words of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld (2002), "it is like searching for a needle in a stack of hay". The alleged Al Qaeda safe haven in Pakistan serves as a pretext for waging drone attacks against alleged terrorists in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). 

President Obama also intimates that Al Qaeda operatives equipped with stinger missiles and Kalashnikovs had managed to outsmart the US-NATO multi-trillion dollar military machine.]  

But over the last three years, the tide has turned. We broke the Taliban’s momentum. We’ve built strong Afghan security forces. We devastated al Qaeda’s leadership, taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders. And one year ago, from a base here in Afghanistan, our troops launched the operation that killed Osama bin Laden.

[A lot has been written on this issue. No proof as to the identity of the person who was allegedly killed by the Seals Special Forces  In the words of Paul Craig Roberts; "The US government’s bin Laden story was so poorly crafted that it did not last 48 hours before being fundamentally altered..." ] 

The goal that I set -- to defeat al Qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild -- is now within our reach.

[There is ample evidence that Al Qaeda (a US sponsored "intelligence asset") is still alive and fully operational. Officially, the goal is to "defeat Al Qaeda". Unofficially, Al Qaeda is supported covertly by US intelligence. 

Since 9/11, Al Qaeda has developed into a multinational entity with "subsidiaries" in various geopolitical hotspots around the world.

In Libya and Syria, Al Qaeda brigades are the foot soldiers of the US-NATO military alliance. Wherever the US military and intelligence apparatus is deployed, Al Qaeda is present: 

Al Qaeda in Iraq, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), Al Shaabab (Somalia), Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Jaish-e-Mohammed (JEM) (Army of Mohammed) (Pakistan), Jemaah Islamiya organization (JI) (Indonesia) Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, etc. (See US State Department Foreign Terrorist Organizations, United Nations Security Council, List of individuals, groups, undertakings and other entities associated with Al-Qaida Al-Qaida Sanctions List)

In a bitter irony, in all these countries, US intelligence is covertly coordinating the activities of Al Qaeda affiliated groups. Officially counterterrorism consists in fighting the "Islamic jihad" Unofficially through covert operations, Western intelligence supports their "assets" including terror entities on the US State Department list.

Moreover, these various terrorist organizations are now being used in US-NATO covert military operations against sovereign countries (e.g. Libya and Syria). According to Israeli intelligence sources:

"NATO headquarters in Brussels and the Turkish high command are meanwhile drawing up plans for their first military step in Syria, which is to arm the rebels with weapons for combating the tanks and helicopters spearheading the Assad regime's crackdown on dissent. Instead of repeating the Libyan model of air strikes, NATO strategists are thinking more in terms of pouring large quantities of anti-tank and anti-air rockets, mortars and heavy machine guns into the protest centers for beating back the government armored forces."(DEBKAfile, NATO to give rebels anti-tank weapons, August 14, 2011)]

Who is or was Osama?

An "intelligence asset", namely an instrument of the CIA used to justify the "Global War on Terrorism".

It is worth recalling that on September 14, 2001, both the House and the Senate adopted a historical resolution authorizing the president to "go after" countries which "aided the [9/11] terrorist attacks"

The president is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.

Today in 2012, there is ample evidence that:  

1) Al Qaeda was not behind the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.

2) There is also detailed evidence that agencies of the US government as well as NATO, continue to support and "harbor such organizations" [Al Qaeda and its affiliated  organizations].  In Libya, the "pro-democracy" rebels were led by Al Qaeda paramilitary brigades under the supervision of NATO Special Forces. The "Liberation" of  Tripoli was carried out by "former" members of the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). The jihadists and NATO work hand in glove. 

These "former" Al Qaeda affiliated brigades in Libya were the backbone of the "pro-democracy" rebellion. 

3) There is evidence that the WTC towers were brought down through controlled demolition, raising the possibility of complicity and cover-up within the US government, intelligence and military. (See the writings of Richard Gage,Undisputed Facts Point to the Controlled Demolition of WTC 7, Global Research, March 2008, see also video, Richard Gage  Controlled Demolitions Caused the Collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings on September 11, 2001, Global Research)

Who is Obama? 

A political liar and a war criminal. 

Obama's scripted speeches are slanted distortions. Realities are turned upside down. Acts of war are heralded as peace-making operations...   

Ironically, the text of the September 14, 2001 Congressional resolution (see above) does not exclude judiicial action and criminal investigation directed against the US-NATO sponsors of international terrorism, including president Obama, who have used the tragic events of 9/11 as a pretext to wage "a war without borders" under the humanitarian banner of the "Global War on Terrorism" (GWOT). 

Obama versus Romney

In the election campaign opposing Barack Obama to Mitt Romney, Osama and the "threat of Al Qaeda" will be "center stage". 

Supported by carefully crafted public relations campaigns, each of the presidential candidates will present --within the realm of a world of sheer fantasy--  their  "Al Qaeda -Global War on Terrorism platform" to the American people. In this ritual, Al Qaeda becomes the central talking point of the campaign; all real major issues including the economic crisis, poverty in America and the devastations of war will be conveniently side-stepped. 



THE NEW TYRANNY: Does The West Have A Future?

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Living in America is becoming very difficult for anyone with a moral conscience, a sense of justice, or a lick of intelligence.  Consider:

We have had a second fake underwear bomb plot, a much more fantastic one than the first hoax.  The second underwear bomber was a CIA operative or informant allegedly recruited by al-Qaeda, an organization that US authorities have recently claimed to be defeated, in disarray, and no longer significant.

This defeated and insignificant organization, which lacks any science and technology labs, has invented an “invisible bomb” that is not detected by the porno-scanners. A “senior law enforcement source” told the New York Times that “the scary part” is that “if they built one, they probably built more.”  

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that “the plot itself indicates that the terrorists keep trying to devise more and more perverse and terrible ways to kill innocent people.” Hillary said this while headlines proclaimed that the US continues to murder woman and children with high-tech drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Africa.  The foiled fake plot, Hillary alleged, serves as “a reminder as to why we have to remain vigilant at home and abroad in protecting our nation and in protecting friendly nations and peoples like India and others.”

FBI Director Robert Mueller told Congress that the fake plot proves the need for warrantless surveillance in order to detect--what, fake plots?  In Congress Republican Pete King and Democrat Charles Ruppersberger denounced media for revealing that the plot was a CIA operation, claiming that the truth threatened the war effort and soldiers’ lives.  

Even alternative news media initially fell for this fake plot. Apparently, no one stops to wonder how al Qaeda, which has become so disorganized and helpless that it is on the run and left its revered leader, Osama bin Laden, in a Pakistan village alone and unguarded to be murdered by US Navy Seals, could catch the CIA off guard with an “undetectable” bomb, to use the description provided by Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Dianne Feinstein, who was briefed on the device by US intelligence personnel.

Notice that the Secretary of State has committed the bankrupt US and its unravelling social safety net to the protection of “India and others” from terrorists.  But the real significance of this latest hoax is to introduce into the fearful American public the idea of an undetectable underwear bomb. 

What does this bring to mind?  Anyone of my generation or any science fiction aficionado immediately thinks of Robert Heinlein’s The Puppet Masters. 

Written in 1951 but set in our time, Earth is invaded by small creatures that attach to the human body and take over the person. The humans become the puppets of their masters. Large areas of America succumb to the invaders before the morons in Washington understand that the invasion is real and not a conspiracy theory. 

On clothed humans, the creatures cannot be detected, and the edict goes out that anyone clothed is a suspect. Everyone must go about naked.  Women are not even allowed to carry purses in their hand, because the creature can be in the purse attached to the woman’s hand. 

Obviously, if the CIA, the news sources, and Dianne Feinstein’s briefers are correct that defeated al-Qaeda has come up with an “undetectable” bomb, we will have to pass through airport security naked. 

If so, how will this be possible?  If each airline passenger must go through a personal screening by disrobing in a room, how long will it take to clear “airport security”?  I doubt there is any place in North or South American that the traveller couldn’t drive there faster. Or perhaps this is an answer to depression level US unemployment. Millions of unemployed Americans will be hired to view naked people before they board airliners. 

As the Transportation Safety Administration division of Homeland Security has taken its intrusions, unchallenged, into train, bus, and highway travel, are we faced with the total collapse of the clothing industry?  Stay tuned.

A couple of years ago a noted philosopher wrote an article in which he suggested that Americans live in an artificial or virtual reality. Another noted philosopher said that he thought there was a 25% chance that the philosopher was right. I am convinced that he is right. Americans live in the Matrix.  Nothing that they know or think that they know is correct.

For example, our non-truth-telling “leaders” continually declare that “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East.”  This myth is one of the many reasons rolled out to justify American taxpayers’ declining incomes being taxed to provide the Israeli government with the means to murder Palestinians and steal their country.

Israeli democracy a myth you say?  Yes, a myth. According to news reports compiled and reported by Antiwar.com (May 8), the September 4 Israeli elections have been cancelled, because the “opposition leader Shaul Mofaz is joining the government.”

Mofaz sold out his party for personal power, a typical politician’s behavior. 

Mofaz’s treachery produced protests from his followers, but, according to news reports, “israeli police were quick to crack down on the protest, terming it ‘illegal’ and arresting a number of journalists.”

Ah, “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East.”  

In truth Israel is a fascist state, one that has been in violation of international law and Christian morality during the entirely of its existence.  Yet, in America Israel is a hallowed icon. Like Bush, Cheney, and Obama, millions of American “christians” worship Israel and believe it is “God’s calling” for Americans to die for Israel.

If you believe in murdering your opponents, not debating with them, dispossessing the powerless, creating a fictional world based on lies and paying the corporate media to uphold the lies and fictional world, you are part of what the rest of the world perceives as “The West.”

Let me back off from being too hard on The West. The French and Greek peoples have shown in the recent elections that they are unplugging from the Matrix and understand that they, the 99%, are being put by their elites in a position to be the sacrificial lambs for the mistakes of the 1% mega-rich, who compete with one another in terms of how many billions of dollars or euros, how many yachts, collections of exotic cars, and exotic Playboy and Penthouse centerfolds they have as personal possessions. 

The central banks of the West--the US Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and the UK bank--are totally committed to the prosperity of the mega-rich.  No one else counts. Marx and Lenin never had a target as exists today.  Yet, the left-wing is today so feeble and brainwashed that it does not exist as even a minor countervailing power.  The American left-wing has even accepted the absurd official account of 9/11 and of Osama bin Laden’s murder in Pakistan by Navy Seals. A movement so devoid of mental and emotional strength is useless. It might as well not exist.

People without valid information are helpless, and that is where Western peoples are. The new tyranny is arising in the West, not in Russia and China. The danger to humanity is in the nuclear button briefcase in the Oval Office and in the brainwashed and militant Amerikan population, the most totally disinformed and ignorant people on earth.



America's Lost War



America's Afghan war is lost and illegal. The Bush administration got no Security Council authorization or congressional declaration of war.


by Stephen Lendman

International law expert Francis Boyle said Congress passed a War Powers Resolution Authorization. Doing so gave Bush "blank check" power "to use military force against any individual, organization, or state" at his discretion.

International and constitutional law be damned. Waging war on Afghanistan "is clearly illegal. It constitutes armed aggression. It is creating a humanitarian catastrophe for the people of Afghanistan."

It's also a lost cause. Pentagon commanders know it. So does Lt. Colonel Daniel Davis. In an unclassified report and more detailed classified one, he explained ongoing disastrous conditions.

From his own firsthand observations and what others told him, he concluded that America's war failed. It can't be won. Official statements conceal hard truths. He witnessed "the absence of success on virtually every level."

Every area he observed firsthand "all over Afghanistan....the tactical situation was bad to abysmal."

Sunday, April 15 highlighted his assessment. The New York Times tried but failed to downplay Taliban success and US failure in an article headlined, "Afghan Forces Quell Attack; Few Civilians Are Killed."

In fact, Taliban forces rocked Afghanistan. Coordinated attacks struck strategic targets in Kabul and at least three other Eastern provincial cities. Jalalabad's airport was attacked. So were police stations and other government facilities.

Beginning what it called its "spring offensive," high profile targets included government buildings, the Parliament, presidential palace, and foreign embassies.

Calling the attacks "complex," The Times admitted they "immobilized much of Kabul" and other areas struck. "Life slowly returned to normal," it continued. A "remarkably small number of civilians" were killed.

Hamid Karzai blames a NATO "intelligence failure." At the same time, he praised Afghan security forces. Given their ineffectiveness, it's how knowing for what. 

According to US ambassador Ryan Crocker, the attacks showed how America's forces are still needed. His comment was revealing. America needs violence and instability to justify its presence. Peace and calm means staying isn't warranted. Expect none any time soon.

Interviewed on CNN, Crocker said Washington's embassy was on lockdown. Like The Times, he downplayed the attacks. He stopped short of admitting that Afghan security forces and America's can't contain Taliban determination to expel an unwanted occupier.

If Sunday didn't prove it, what will? Throughout the day, well-planned, coordinated attacks used rocket-propelled grenades, explosives, and other weapons effectively. 

Parliament and adjacent areas were struck. So were NATO headquarters, Karzai's presidential palace, and foreign embassies. Among them were Britain's, Germany's, Japan's and Russia's. 

The British ambassador's residence was struck. So were two hotels, including Kabul's Star Hotel. Fighters used rocket-propelled grenades, other rockets, hand grenades, other explosives, heavy machine guns, lighter weapons, and suicide vests.

Fighting raged for 18 hours. In ten and a half years of war, it was the most dramatic example of Taliban determination to prevail, and America's inability to stop them.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said attacks were preceded by two months of planning. Dozens of fighters were involved. "We are strong, and we can attack anywhere we want," he said. On Sunday, he proved it. The whole world saw what America's scoundrel media tried, but couldn't downplay.

Comparisons to Tet

April 15 is reminiscent of January 30, 1968. It was Tet Offensive day one. North Vietnam army regulars and NLF fighters launched nationwide attacks.

Three and a half years into the war, it turned the tide. It showed determined freedom fighters can prevail over the world's mightiest military, though they alone didn't do it, nor could they declare victory after weeks of bloody conflict. More on that below.

Carefully planned, Tet lasted two months. Fighting was fierce across South Vietnam. Strategic targets were struck, including the heart of Saigon, Hue, and around America's Khe Sanh base.

Vietnamese called years of struggle "The War against the Americans to save the nation." They never wanted war, their nation divided, or Washington as an enemy. Imperial arrogance had other plans from end of WW II. Liberation came only after 30 years of conflict. 

May 1954 Dien Bien Phu defeat ended French involvement. America's exit took another two decades.

On January 30, 1968, three and a half years after America's August 1964 Gulf of Tonkin resolution, thousands of Vietnamese soldiers and NLF guerrillas stormed Banmethut, Kontum and Pleiku.

At the same time, they invaded 13 of the 16 provincial capitals throughout the Mekong Delta. US forces were caught off guard and stunned. America's Saigon embassy was penetrated. So was the presidential palace, a radio station, ARVN headquarters, and General Westmoreland's own Tan Son Nhut airbase compound.

America's Bien Hoa air base was assaulted. Over 20 aircraft were either destroyed or damaged. Surprise gave fighters an advantage. Saigon experienced chaos. 

Tactics varied from area to area. Most Saigon fighting ended in days. In Hue, it raged for weeks. It became one of Vietnam's longest and bloodiest battles.

After two months of conflict, Tet ended in defeat. Years later, Vietnamese won the war. Tet was decisive. It turned the tide. It showed US vulnerability from freedom fighter determination to prevail. They didn't succeed alone. American anti-war activism made the difference. So did Congress.

Vietnam Era Anti-War Activism Absent Today

In the 1960s and 70s, students, workers, middle class households, academics, and others rallied effectively against war. In 1968, their efforts peaked. With a 36% approval rating and 26% on Vietnam, Johnson became a lame duck. On March 31, he announced:

"I shall not seek, nor will I accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your president."

Despite his Great Society accomplishments, he was finished, a broken man. He became a shadow of his former self, a once bigger than life figure in Congress and as president. In January 1973 at age 64, he was dead.

Beginning in early 1965, anti-war activism gained momentum. Efforts included protest rallies and marches, university "teach-ins," other campus activities, and an April 17, 1965 Washington rally, drawing up to 25,000. A later one drew half a million.

Numerous events followed. Thousands participated. In October 1967, a two-day march on the Pentagon attracted national media attention. Activists advocated draft card burning. 

Today's military is all-volunteer. But no one forces young men and women to enlist. A Main Street Depression pressures them. Better to be unemployed than dead, maimed, or psychologically traumatized.

Perhaps a voice today like Martin Luther King's could persuade them and rally nationwide anti-war fervor. His spirit's badly needed. No one matches what counts most. Nor has a new millennium Daniel Ellsberg exposed today's lies like his Pentagon Papers revealed.

If they did, who'd publish them? Not The New York Times and Washington Post. What they did in 1971 wouldn't likely repeat now. 

Perhaps today's Internet can substitute effectively. Revealing vital truths and spreading them is crucial. It's step one to arousing public passion for peace. If sustained, anything is possible.

Congressional Authority to Wage or End Wars

Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution authorizes only Congress to declare war. It also has power to end them. It controls funding. It can supply it or cut it off.
Article I, Section 7, Clause I says: 

"All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills."

Either House may originate an appropriations bill though the House claims sole authority.  Either House may amend bills, including revenue and appropriations ones.

Congressional appropriation power is key. Cutting off funds ended Vietnam fighting. Early critics like Senators Mike Mansfield, Frank Church, William Fulbright, Albert Gore Sr., and Stuart Symington spoke privately for the most part. They didn't act.

Congressional debate then changed things. Under Johnson, it began ineffectively. Under Nixon, it gained traction. By June 30, 1970, the Church/Cooper amendment stipulated no further spending for soldiers, combat assistance, advisors, or bombing operations in Cambodia. It was the first congressional budgetary act limiting war funding.

Others followed. In 1972, the Church/Case amendment ended funding for America's Southeast Asia military operations. Time for a face-saving withdrawal was permitted. House passage didn't follow Senate action. It slowed, but didn't defeat anti-war efforts.

In June 1973, Congress passed another Church/Case amendment. Beginning August 15, war funding ended. Nixon's veto was overridden. The War Powers Act followed. 

It gives presidents the power to act unilaterally for 60 days in response to a "national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces." It authorizes another 30 days to disengage, short of congressional assent to continue.

On April 30, 1975, America's Vietnam involvement entirely ended with a humiliating Saigon embassy rooftop pullout. With sustained anti-war fervor, replicating that in Kabul, Baghdad, and Libya can happen. 

Afghan, Iraqi, and Libyan Jamahiriya freedom fighters keep resisting. With effective US public support, Afghan fighting and occupation can end. Iraqi and Libyan liberation struggles can succeed. Syrians can be free from Western-generated violence. Iran can avoid it.

Anti-war activism ended America's Vietnam involvement. Why not in today's theaters of war and occupation! Popular resistance must reawaken. Sustained public pressure can prevail!

A Final Comment: Ending a Lost War

In his 1995 book, "In Retrospect: The Tragedy and Lessons of Vietnam," former Defense Secretary McNamara wrote: "....we were wrong, terribly wrong. We owe it to future generations to explain why."

In 1965, he knew the war was lost and said so. He told Lyndon Johnson: "I don't believe they're ever going to quit. And I don't see....that we have any....plan for victory - militarily or diplomatically." 

He spoke privately as escalation increased dramatically. He knew the futility and lawlessness, but went along anyway. When it was too late to matter, he explained. Johnson also knew but continued a war he couldn't win. It cost him a second term and shortened his life.

After multiple post-9/11 wars, occupations, and others planned, public resistance can replicate what ended America's Vietnam involvement. It's high time that happened! 

Aroused people power can defeat America's imperial arrogance if it decides enough's enough and tries!

Why Breitbart Died
It seems, everybody now knows why Andrew Breitbart mysteriously dropped dead at the age 43 after eating in a certain restaurant...... OMG


First, that peculiar CIA bastard Obombo concocted a fake birth certificate, thus illegitimately participating in the presidency campaign... then he beastly destroyed the state of Libya and triggered Libyan Holocaust of 50-60 thousand murdered innocents... His only friends are similar ugly, dirty bastards and swindlers Cameron, Sarkozy, Howard, Rasmussen, Berlusca, Abdullah Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan bin-Shaitani, Netanyahu and Kremlin clowns Putin and Medvedev...

So we might take a hint made by Andrew Adler of the Atlanta Jewish Times with specific understanding. What's the difference of that Kenyan murderer Bardak porco Obombo from his bloody degenerate predecessor George Chimp Bush von Schwein ???.....

Syria and Iran in Focus

by Stephen Lendman - Mathaba.net

America's longstanding agenda targets both countries. Israel wants regional rivals removed. Washington wants independent regimes replaced by pro-Western puppet ones.

All options are considered, including war. For months, saber rattling targeted Tehran. Multiple rounds of sanctions were imposed. Stiffer ones are considered. More on Iran below.

For 15 months, Syria's been wracked by Western-generated violence. No end of conflict appears likely. Constitutional reform and democratic elections don't matter. Neither does majority pro-Assad support.

Washington's comfortable dealing with democrats, despots, or anything in between so long as regimes serve its interests. Otherwise they're targeted for removal. International law is a non-starter. So are fundamental US statute laws and America's Constitution.

Since early last year, Western and regional nations armed, funded and trained insurgents. US, UK and perhaps other Special Forces actively aid them. So do CIA and MI6 operatives.

Al Qaeda elements actively participate. Washington uses them strategically as enemies and allies. At times, it's done simultaneously in different parts of the world. Scoundrel media reports don't explain. Regurgitating official lies are featured.

Last year, Russia accused Western nations of illicitly arming Syrian insurgents. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said:

"Nobody is commenting on it and no one is admitting it, but the facts are impossible to contradict. Weapons are being smuggled intoSyria from Turkey and Iraq."

They're also supplied by other nations. So are mercenaries used to depose Assad.

On May 16, Syrian officials reported a truck seized with hidden weapons in al-Raqqa province. Numerous times other elicit caches were discovered. 

In late April, Lebanon's navy intercepted a Sierra-Leone registered ship carrying arms and munitions. Heavy ones bound for Syrian insurgents included machine guns, artillery shells, and rocket-propelled grenades.

Last February, Itar Tass reported a Russian secret services source saying "(h)uge batches of small arms and munitions for the Syrian Liberation Army's troops are supplied from Lebanon (by opposition March 14 alliance elements), Iraq and Turkey, but unofficially, not through (their) governments."

"The supply list includes submachine guns, machine guns, sniper rifles and antitank grenade launchers."

Lt. General Leonid Sazhin said "the scenario that has already been developed and administered by the United States and (its) NATO allies, mainly France, Britain and Turkey, as well as the monarchy regimes from the Cooperation for the Arab States of the Gulf, in particular Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, is being implemented in Syria."

Qatar's actively involved. So are Jordan, Libya and Israel. Doing so is illegal. International law prohibits interfering in the internal affairs of other countries except in self-defense.  

On May 15, the Washington Post headlined "Syrian rebels get influx of arms with gulf neighbors' money, US coordination," saying:

Insurgents got "significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks." Coordinated by Washington, Gulf states (notably Saudi Arabia) finance them. Opposition elements, US, and foreign officials confirm what's ongoing.

Obama claims Washington's not supplying weapons and munitions directly. Be skeptical. He's a serial liar. Nothing he says is credible. Directly and/or indirectly, administration officials are very much involved. America orchestrated the insurgency from inception.

According to an unnamed State Department official:

"We are increasing our nonlethal assistance to the Syrian opposition, and we continue to coordinate our efforts with friends and allies in the region and beyond in order to have the biggest impact on what we are collectively doing."

Washington maintains direct contact with insurgent leaders. "Many officials now consider an expanding military confrontation to be inevitable. Material is being stockpiled in Damascus, in Idlib near the Turkish border and in Zabadani on the Lebanese border."

Large supplies are flowing. One opposition figure said "(s)ome areas are loaded with weapons."

Washington officials met with Eastern Syrian Kurds. Talks included "opening a second front against Assad's forces that would compel him to move resources from the west."

When NATO meets in Chicago this weekend, discussions will include anti-Assad strategy.

Syrian "(o)pposition figures said they have been in direct contact with State Department officials to designate worthy rebel recipients of arms and pinpoint locations for stockpiles...."

Pentagon officials prepared military options. They include destroyingSyria's air defenses. In fact, if air strikes begin, all strategic sites will be targeted. Libya's model will be replicated. Mass deaths and destruction will follow. Increasingly it looks likely.

Target Iran

The RAND Corporation think tank has considerable influence on USpolicy. Operating like a shadow government, it supports militarism, imperial wars, and technocrat run world government.

Nonetheless, its new report warned against attacking Iran's nuclear facilities. Titled "How to Defuse Iran's Nuclear Threat," it argued for "diplomacy and economic sanctions," not militarism.

"An Israeli or American attack on Iranian nuclear facilities would make it more, not less, likely that the Iranian regime would decide to produce and deploy nuclear weapons. Such an attack would also make it more, not less, difficult to contain Iranian influence."

RAND notes Iran's regional "appeal" as an anti-American, anti-imperial, anti-Zionist "bastion." Attacking its nuclear and/or other sites would enhance its influence. It believes the hawkish Israeli approach:

"rests on a faulty assumption that a future, post-attack Middle East would indeed be free of a nuclear-armed Iran. In fact, a post-attack Middle East may result in the worst of both worlds: a nuclear-armedIran more determined than ever to challenge the Jewish state, and with far fewer regional and international impediments to doing so."

It recommends supporting current and former Israeli officials arguing against military strikes. It suggests bolstering US/Israeli "security cooperation and intelligence sharing." It believes pressuring Iran non-belligerently can weaken "its capacity to project power."

A future Iranian regime may view Israel differently, it says. Washingtonshould try convincing Iranian people that America "cares about Iranas a nation, not merely a problem to be solved."

"Iranian people offer the surest hope for a future Iran that is more amenable to US interests."

Attacking its facilities "would make  it more, not less, likely (to want) nuclear weapons."

Four RAND contributors produced the report, including:

(1) Former US Assistant Secretary of State James Dobbins. He directs RAND's International Security and Defense Policy Center.

(2) Dalia Dassa Kaye, senior RAND political scientist and Pardee RAND graduate school faculty member.

(3) Alireza Nader, senior RAND international policy analyst focusing on Iranian politics and foreign policy.

(4) Frederic Wehrey, senior RAND policy analyst focusing on Persian Gulf security.

Whether their assessment and recommendations influence US and/or Israeli policies remains to be seen. 

What their report omitted is significant. 

Iran's nuclear program is peaceful, not belligerent. Nothing proves otherwise.

IAEA inspectors discovered no evidence suggesting weapons development and/or production. Neither did annual US intelligence assessments as recently as March 2012.

Discussion of Israel's nuclear arsenal was excluded. So was its willingness to use it if feel threatened. Israel's a global menace. Belligerence and violence reflect official policy. 

Palestine's been illegally occupied for 45 years. So has Syria's Golan. Lebanon was attacked in 1978, 1982, 1993, 1996, and 2006.Southern Lebanon was illegally occupied for 18 years. Israel still holds Ghajar bordering Golan and Sheba Farms. It's valued for its water resources.

For over 40 years, Israel lawlessly violated Lebanese territory. Daily overflights occur. Lebanon's justified in fearing more war. So is Gazaafter Cast Lead.

In 2007, Syria's alleged nuclear site was bombed. Evidence of an existing one was suspect and inconclusive. At the time, IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei said its experts analyzed satellite imagery. They concluded that the building struck was not a nuclear facility. 

Despite just cause, Damascus didn't retaliate. In 1981, Israeldestroyed Iraq's Osirak reactor. Neither did Baghdad.

Israel's involved in arming and destabilizing Assad's government. It's longstanding agenda calls for regional hegemony. Balkanization and belligerency are policies to achieve it.

Iran hasn't attacked another nation in over 200 years. It threatens none now, including Israel. Claims about wanting Israel wiped off the map are spurious. Calling it a sponsor of regional terrorism are false. 

Israel and America threaten world peace, not Iran or Syria. That should be issue one. RAND didn't mention it. Instead it discussed defusing a nonexistent Iranian nuclear threat. 

Urging diplomacy and sanctions, not belligerence, misses the point. Political solutions should always be policy. So should welcoming nonbelligerent states into the family of nations, ending repressive sanctions, and working for world peace.

Influential groups should support policies conforming to international law. They should oppose and denounce belligerent, lawless, destructive, or counterproductive ones. RAND and others like it fall short on all counts.

Obama Planning More and more War

by Stephen Lendman


America's favorite pastime isn't baseball. It's war, permanent imperial wars that won't end in our lifetime Dick Cheney said earlier.

America is addicted to war. One nation after another is ravaged and plundered. Unchallenged global dominance is sought. 

Who's next- Syria? Iran? Washington's long knives target both countries.

On June 29, AP headlined "US, Russia fail to reach agreement on Syria, jeopardizing Annan plan to end crisis," saying:

Before heading for Geneva, Hillary Clinton and Sergey Lavrov met in St. Petersburg. Differences between them weren't resolved.

Washington demands regime change. Moscow wants Syrians to decide who'll lead them. Lavrov said:

We "agreed to look for an agreement that will bring us closer based on a clear understanding of what’s written in the Annan plan that (all) sides in Syria need an incentive for a national dialogue."

"But it’s only up to the Syrians to make agreements on what the Syrian state will be like, who will hold (government) jobs and positions."

Putting a brave face on intractable differences, Lavrov hoped Geneva discussions would move closer to resolving Syria's conflict peacefully. "But I am not saying that we will agree on every dot."

Kofi Annan proposed unity government. Government and opposition members would be included. Elements seeking belligerent change would be excluded. 

Russia and other major powers expressed support. Washington insists Assad must go. He told Iran's IRIB channel 4:

"We, in Syria, do not accept any model that is not Syrian and national, regardless of whether it was imposed by superpowers or proposed by friendly countries." 

"No one knows how to resolve the problem in Syria as well as we do, as Syrians….so, any model that comes from abroad is unacceptable regardless of its content."

At the same time, he thanked Russia, China, and other countries for trying to resolve things peacefully to restore stability.

On June 30, America, Russia, China, Britain, France, Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar met in Geneva. Moscow wanted Iran there. Washington rejected Tehran's participation.

Reports late Saturday said world powers struck a transitional government deal. What part Assad would play remains unclear. 

Russia says Syrians must decide who'll lead them. The deal struck has no preconditions. 

Ahead of word from Geneva, insurgent leaders rejected transitional government with Assad in it. Earlier they spurned peace initiatives. They take orders from Washington. 

Expect little more now than earlier. America won't tolerate peaceful resolution. Regime change depends on violence and instability. What's next remains to be seen.

Iran is also targeted. On June 25, Aviation Week (AW) headlined "Raiding Iran Triggers Discussion of When and How," saying:

"Evidence is mounting that the U.S. defense community and the Obama administration view 2013 as the likely window for a bombing attack on Iran's nuclear and missile facilities."

"It could be earlier, timed to use the chaos of the Syrian government's fall to disguise such an attack, or later, if international negotiations with Iran stretch out without failing completely." 

"But there is evidence that Iran's intransigence over shutting down its uranium-enrichment program will not buy it much more time."

"The tools for conducting an attack are all operational."

Proponents in and outside America suggest Iran already conducted one or more nuclear tests in North Korea. Corroborating evidence didn't follow claims. They're baseless like other accusations about Tehran menacing the region.

Debate continues in Washington. To attack or not attack? If so, when? Electoral priorities dictate policy. Three unnamed retired senior war planners offered views. Comments were as follows:

"I think it would take an extraordinarily dumb move on the part of the Iranians to force U.S. kinetic interventions before the U.S. presidential election (by abandoning negotiations)."

"Israel has fewer reservations (about attacking) given the recent solidification of their government."

The most politically opportune time would be 2013 or 2014.

"The assessment I'm betting on is continued watching, but with U.S. forces close to action."

An attack "would employ a totally stealthy force of F-22s, B-2s and Jassms (joint air-to-surface standoff missiles) that are launched from F-15Es and (Block 40) F-16s."

Other advanced weapons and radar jamming devices would be used.

"We should give Iran advanced warning that we will damage and likely destroy its nuclear facilities. It is not an act of war against Iran, the Iranian people or Islam." 

"It is a pre-emptive attack solely against their nuclear facilities and the military targets protecting them. We will take extraordinary measures to protect against collateral damage."

The above comment doesn't square with reality. An attack means war. Launching one assures many deaths. Vast destruction will occur. Civilian infrastructure and military targets will be struck. War planners know what's involved. The pattern repeats from one conflict to the next.

At a February Israeli security conference, Lt. General (ret.) Dan Halutz (former IDF chief of staff) said Iran's nuclear program shouldn't be used as an excuse for Israel to attack unilaterally. 

"The military option should be last, and it should be led by others." He meant Washington, but Israel would be involved.

Another issue is Syria. It has surveillance and air defense capabilities. Damascus shares information with Tehran. Attacking Iran involves possible routes over Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Israel.

Syrian radar would detect it. Ousting Assad denies Iran advance warning.

According to America's Israeli ambassador Daniel Shapiro, Washington is ready to act if diplomatic talks fail. The military option is "not just available, it's ready," he said. 

"The necessary planning has been done to ensure that it's ready. The international community has been notified."

According to US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta:

"The fundamental premise is that neither the U.S. nor the international community is going to allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon."

"We will do everything we can to prevent them from developing a weapon. We have plans to be able to implement any contingency we have to in order to defend ourselves."

Cyberattack is another option. According to US Lt. General (ret.) David Deptula:

"It depends on what the objectives are. What we want to be able to do is to get our foes to act in accordance with our strategic objectives without ever knowing they have been acted upon. Operations in cyberspace allow that to happen."

It's well known that Iran poses no nuclear threat. Claiming otherwise is red herring cover for regime change. 

Its program is peaceful. It complies fully with NPT provisions. US intelligence and IAEA inspectors confirmed it. In contrast, Israel is nuclear armed and dangerous. It menaces the region and beyond. It passes under the radar unmentioned.

On June 21, Haaretz headlined "As nuclear talks fail, US experts urge Obama to weigh military option on Iran," saying:

Forty-four US senators wrote Obama. They want pressure, not more dialogue. They listed specific demands. They include shutting down Tehran's heavily protected Fordo facility, halting uranium enrichment above 5%, and shipping amounts above it offshore.

They urged options including military action if Iran doesn't comply.

The House Armed Services Committee heard testimonies on "Addressing the Iranian Nuclear Challenge: Understanding the Military Option." According to former Senator Charles Robb:

"The dual approach of diplomacy and sanctions simply have not proved to be enough. We need the third track, and that is credible and visible preparations for a military option."

"We are not urging Israel to take unilateral military action against Iran nuclear facilities, but we need to make their capability to do so stronger so that Iran will take that threat more seriously."

"We are not advocating another war in this region," he claimed. His comments, of course, don't square with reality.

Washington and Israel plan joint military exercises this fall. They were scheduled earlier but postponed. Called "Austere Challenge 12," it's expected to be the largest scale operation between the two countries.

Last March, Senator Barbara Boxer (D. CA) introduced S. 2165: United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012. On June 19, it was reported to committee. On June 29, it passed by voice vote.

HR 4133 is the companion House bill. On May 9, it passed overwhelmingly. John Dingell (D. MI) and Ron Paul (R. TX) cast the only "no" votes. 

Paul called the measure "another piece of one-sided and counter-productive foreign policy legislation. This bill's real intent seems to be more saber-rattling against Iran and Syria, and it undermines U.S. diplomatic efforts by making clear that the U.S. is not an honest broker seeking peace for the Middle East."

"The bill calls for the United States to significantly increase our provision of sophisticated weaponry to Israel, and states that it is to be U.S. policy to 'help Israel preserve its qualitative military edge' in the region."

"While I absolutely believe that Israel – and any other nation - should be free to determine for itself what is necessary for its national security, I do not believe that those decisions should be underwritten by U.S. taxpayers and backed up by the U.S. military."

Paul added that the bill won't help America, Israel, or the Middle East. It implicitly authorizes greater US regional intervention at a time wars ravage it. 

War with Syria and/or Iran will follow, he believes. According to Haaretz, Washington and Israel "continue preparations for striking Iran's nuclear facilities... A senior Israeli official said Netanyahu has decided to attack Iran before the US elections in November."

The US-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act reaffirms America's "unwavering commitment to the security of the State of Israel as a Jewish State." It's also to ensure its military strength.

House co-sponsor Eric Cantor (R. VA) said:

"This bill reaffirms Israel's right to defend itself against threats and puts Congress on the record about America's long-standing commitment to the US-Israel strategic relationship, a unique and special relationship founded on shared interests and shared democratic values."

"This bill recognizes the profound threats the U.S. and Israel face in the region and reiterates our commitment to standing side by side with Israel during this pivotal and dangerous period of transition and instability."

Following passage, AIPAC said: "This vote is a testament to the broad, bipartisan support of the American people for bolstering the ties between the US and our ally Israel."

"The United States benefits greatly through enhanced cooperation with Israel, and this bipartisan bill recommends new avenues for the US-Israel relationship to grow and strengthen in the fields of missile defense, homeland security, energy, intelligence, and cyber security."

Congress recently voted to increase military aid for Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system. Israel gets more annual aid than all other nations combined. Most goes for military purposes. 

Both countries are imperial partners.
Together with Britain, France, other NATO allies and regional ones, they threaten humanity !!!


Heading for Economic Collapse

Sane outlook at collapsing Capitalist economy


by Stephen Lendman - Mathaba.net


The late Bob Chapman predicted it years ago. So does Paul Craig Roberts. It could "destroy Western civilization," he believes.

Untenable political and financial decisions put US and European economies on a collision course with disaster. Bailouts and market manipulation delay the inevitable. 

A tipping point approaches. Only its timeframe is unknown.

Money power runs world economies. Wall Street and giant European banks run Western societies. 

"Financial deregulation converted the financial system into a gambling casino", says Roberts. Zero interest rates destroy household savings. Media scoundrels suppress ugly truths.

Western governments letting banking crooks scam the system for profits "is a system that is headed for catastrophic failure."

Bad news keeps getting worse. Public acknowledgement arrives late. Moody's June 21 downgrade of 15 major banks conceded what's been known for years. 

Giant Western banks are zombies. They're insolvent. Taxpayer funded bailouts alone keep them operating. Moody's warned last winter than downgrades were coming. So-called stress tests suppress more than they revealed.

Ellen Brown calls the "derivatives casino a last-ditch attempt to prop up a private pyramid scheme." It's slowly crumbling under its own weight.

JPMorgan Chase is considered America's most stable bank. Brown calls it bankrupt. Evidence, she says, shows it's acknowledged $2 billion loss perhaps exceeds $30 billion.

Roberts explained that America's five largest banks hold $226 trillion in derivative bets. For example, JPMorgan's total assets approach $2 trillion. Its derivatives holdings exceed $70 trillion. Its risk capital is about $136 billion.

Its "derivative bets are 516 times larger than the capital that covers the bets."

Goldman Sachs "takes the cake," says Roberts. Its $44 trillion in derivatives speculation "is covered by only $19 billion in risk capital."

In other words, its bets are "2,295 times larger than" cash on hand covering them.

Derivatives bets by America's five largest banks exceed US GDP over 15-fold. Corrupt politicians allowing it assure eventual economic collapse.

Banking executives are serial liars. After Moody's downgrades, Citigroup and Bank of America officials said its action failed to reflect "safeguards" in place for years.

Roberts destroyed their argument. So did Brown and other independent analysts.

Moody's and other rating agencies long ago lost credibility. They failed to acknowledge the sub prime crisis until headlines revealed it. 

They bogusly call toxic assets safe in return for large fees and big profits.

They're called lagging, not leading indicators. They're many days and dollars short. They're part of the dirty game that scams ordinary people.

RBC Capital Markets analyst Gerard Cassidy said Moody's "action is five years too late."

Stanford University Professor Anat Admati called its downgrades bad news at a time bank "balance sheets are very fragile."

Credit Agricole Securities analyst Mike Mayo said America doesn't have a coherent solution to its banking crisis. Will actions like Moody's make it safer, he asked? 

Saying the jury is still out, he doubts it. He also called Thursday's downgrades "unfortunate four years after (a) crisis" that's deepening, not improving.

Evidence shows troubled global banking conditions. Central bank liquidity injections alone prevent collapse. They're running their course. Each new round helps less than previous ones. Ahead they'll be ineffective at a price too great to bear.

They've bailed out banks at the expense of economic growth. Recovery is more distant than earlier. Speculators alone profited. Good times they alone enjoyed are ending.

Economic data show it. The closely watched Markit Eurozone purchasing managers composite index matched May's 46 read. It showed production contracting at the steepest level since June 2009.

Its flash measure dropped from 45.1 in May to 44.8 in June. It reflected a 37-month low. Markit's chief economist, Chris Williamson, said the flash reading "rounded off the weakest quarter for three years."

China's flash PMI fell to 48.1 in June. Manufacturing contracted for the eighth consecutive month. The Fed slashed 2012 and 2013 US growth. Growing numbers of companies are cutting revenue and profit estimates.

Germany's ZEW confidence index plunged to -16.9 from 10.8 in May. It's the largest monthly decline since the 1998 LTCM/Russian debt default crisis.

Moreover, its Ifo business confidence index hit a two-year low, and Italy's consumer confidence plunged to its lowest level since 1996.

US initial jobless claims are rising. On June 21, they reached a 2012 high.

Slowdown is gaining speed. Economic underpinnings look wobbly. In June alone, about 70% of economic reports showed weakness. 

The Fed's Operation Twist extension underwhelmed analysts. Officially it's called the Maturity Extension Program. It exchanges short-term debt for longer term holdings. In theory, it's to lower interest rates on 10-year Treasuries. In early June 22 trading, they stood at 1.63%, a near record low.

Housing remains in Depression. In the week ending June 15, mortgage purchase applications plunged 8.5%. Companies keep cutting planned capex expenditures. According to the latest Architectural Billings Index, commercial construction keeps contracting.

Down 22% from their highs, commodity prices entered bear market territory. Oil prices hit an 18-month low. It signals weak demand. Brent fell 8% in one week. It's down 30% from its earlier high.

US factory output reached an 11-month low. Eurozone business activity dropped for the fifth straight month. At a 48.5 read in June, Germany's PMI shows contraction. The Fed's June Philadelphia manufacturing index contracted sharply to -16.6 after dropping 5.8 points in May.

The Jolts (Job Opening/Labor Turnover) survey showed job openings plunged 325,000 in May. It was the steepest drop since Lehman's September 2008 collapse. Only twice before in the past decade did it decline that much. All major categories were affected.

New hires decreased for the second straight month. They're lowest since July 2011. Again all categories showed weakness. 

Layoffs keep increasing. Cuts rose in three of the past four months.

Data revisions are mostly negative. Peak levels were reached months ago. The full impact of how weak things are has yet to hit home. So-called recovery is illusion, not reality.

Europe's economic condition is grim. Bailing out Spain gets harder. Economist Jack Rasmus estimates its banks need at least $300 billion, not the publicly announced $78.75 billion. 

He added that hundreds of billions more are needed to rescue Spain's regional and central governments. At issue is who'll supply it. Sick economies can't solve their own problems. 

Eurozone ones look to Germany for help. It bears the greatest burden when it's economy is weakening. 

Italy's troubled economy combined with its 12-month 29% of GDP sovereign financing burden means it can't contribute much.

Europe's PIIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain) combined with troubled France have a combined public debt of 200% of Germany's GDP. Its own debt to GDP ratio is 80%. 

Simple math says it can't backstop the Eurozone. Bailouts can't continue forever. Debt burdened economies head for collapse. Adding more hastens the timeframe. 

Troubled Eurozone economies are so weak that cross-border bank-to-bank lending dried up. ECB chairman Mario Draghi calls inter-bank lending "dysfunctional." It's "not working," he said. As it goes, so does business lending altogether.

Rasmus said these developments show deepening crisis conditions. He blames wrongheaded policy measures. 

Austerity when stimulus is needed hit hard. Government revenues are down. So is consumption. Business spending keeps falling. Debt keeps rising. A looming train wreck approaches.

Why should households and economies bear the burden of bailing out crooked banks? Why are too big to fail ones allowed to exist? Why do ordinary people put up with politicians scamming them for personal gain? Why do they elect new bums in place of old ones?

When conditions exceed threshold levels too painful to bear, maybe they'll react the way they should have years ago. 

A Final Comment:

On June 19, the Global Europe Anticipation Bulletin (GEAB) issued a "red alert." Global conditions are "negative, even catastrophic," it said.

The second half of 2012 may "mark a major inflection point of the global system crisis...."

Day of reckoning time approaches. Putting off "the inevitable comes at a high price...."

"The shock of the autumn of 2008 will seen like a small summer storm compared to what's" coming. The "world system" will be "shaken."

GEAB predicts a conversion of geopolitical and economic shocks. They include more Middle East wars, Afpak chaos, "Gulf countries swept away in the turmoil," America's economy in free fall, major bank insolvencies, and money printing madness ended because it no longer works.

Early summer perhaps is the calm before the storm. If GEAB is right, it won't be pleasant on arrival.


USA: Assassination Nation

Fifty Years of US Targeted Kill Lists: From the Phoenix Program to Predator Drones

by Doug Noble

“A broad-gauged program of targeted assassination has now displaced counterinsurgency as the prevailing expression of the American way of war” – Andrew Bacevich

This spring the US drone killing program has come out of the closet. Attorney General Eric Holder publicly defended the drone killing of an American citizen, while Obama’s counter terrorism czar John Brennan publicly explained and justified the target killing program. And a New York Times article by Jo Becker and Scott Shane chronicled Obama’s personal role in vetting a secret “Kill List.” 

This striking new transparency, the official acknowledgment for the first time of a broad-based US assassination and targeted killing program, has resulted from the unprecedented and controversial visibility of drone warfare. Drones now make news every day, and those of us who have been protesting their use for years have heightened their visibility in the public eye, forcing official acknowledgment and fostering worldwide scrutiny. This new scrutiny focuses not only on drone use but also, and perhaps more importantly, on the targeted killing itself – and the “kill lists” that make them possible. 

This new exposure has set off a firestorm of reaction around the globe. Chris Woods of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism told Democracy Now! “The kill list got really heavy coverage … newspapers have all expressed significant concern about the existence of the kill list, the idea of this level of executive power.” A Washington Post editorial noted that “No president has ever relied so extensively on the secret killing of individuals to advance the nation’s security goals.” Becker and Shane of the Times pronounced Obama’s role “without precedent in presidential history, of personally overseeing the shadow war …” And former president Jimmy Carter insisted, in a recent editorial in The New York Times, “We don’t know how many hundreds of innocent civilians have been killed in these (drone) attacks, each one approved by the highest authorities in Washington. This would have been unthinkable in previous times.” 

Really ? 

In fact, US assassination and targeted killing, with presidential approval, has been going on covertly for at least half a century. Ironically, all this drone killing now offers us a new opportunity: to pry open the Pandora’s box hiding long-held secrets of covert US assassination and targeted killing, and to expose them to the light of day. What we would find is that the only things new in the latest, more publicized revelations about kill lists and assassinations are the use of drones, the president’s hands-on approach in vetting targets, and the global scope of the drone killing. 

Those of us in the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones, Code Pink and other groups protesting US drones for years have correctly focused on the use of drones as illegal, immoral and strategically counterproductive. We have abhorred the schizophrenic ease of remote killing, the uniquely frightening horror of a drone strike, and the unavoidable (even intentional) killing of countless civilian “terrorist suspects” in “signature strikes.” We have also warned of the proliferation of drones in countries around the globe and of their procurement by US police forces and border patrols, for surveillance and “non-lethal” targeting. 

But drones are not the only, or even the most important, concern. It’s the targeted killing itself, past and present. In this article I start to unravel what the latest demands for transparency should lead us to investigate fully: the fifty year history of US assassination and targeted killing that has resulted, quite directly, in the present moment. Those who are mortified by the latest revelations of Obama’s kill list have much to learn from a more comprehensive, historical perspective on US killing around the globe. Who knows: Perhaps someone in Congress might even be prodded to do what Senators Fulbright and Church did in years past: hold hearings on this continuing execration taking place in our name. Until then, what follows is an introduction to this ongoing horror story. 

Section 1 of this article briefly reviews the lethal history of the US Phoenix Program in Vietnam, the original source of subsequent US counter terrorist tactics and strategies. Section 2 revisits briefly the well-worn history of US kill lists and assassinations in Latin American countries, followed by the somewhat less-well-known history of US kill lists and assassinations in countries on other continents. Section 3 traces the direct legacy of Phoenix, even its explicit resurrection by the key architects of the US targeted killing programs in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in a growing number of “countries we are not at war with.” 

One point of clarification and definition. It is well known that in recent history the US has orchestrated assassination attempts, both successful and unsuccessful, on major world leaders. Examples include: Lumumba under Eisenhower, Castro and Diem under Kennedy, Gaddhafi under Reagan, Saddam Hussein under Bush, and Allende under Nixon. The term “assassination” is typically restricted to such killings of political leaders, and President Ford’s executive order banning assassination applies only to the assassination of foreign heads of state. The focus of this article is different. Here we discuss the US-generated kill lists used over the last half century, under direct presidential authority, for the targeted killing of thousands of civilians suspected of being or harboring terrorists/ insurgents, from Vietnam to Guatemala, from Indonesia to Iraq, right up to the present day. 

The Phoenix Program

The US Phoenix Program was a secret, large scale counter terrorist effort in Vietnam. Developed in 1967 by the CIA, the Phoenix Program, called Phung Hoang by the Vietnamese, aimed a concerted effort to “neutralize” the Vietcong Infrastructure (VCI) consisting of South Vietnamese civilians suspected of supporting North Vietnamese or Viet Cong soldiers. The euphemism “neutralize” meant to kill or detain indefinitely. Then CIA Director William Colby, while insisting in 1971 Congressional hearings that “the Phoenix program is not a program of assassination,” nonetheless conceded that Phoenix operations killed over 20,000 people between 1967 and 1972. 

Phoenix targeted civilians, not soldiers. Operations were carried out by “hunter-killer teams” consisting both of US Green Berets and Navy Seals and by South Vietnamese Provincial Reconnaissance Units (PRUs), units of mercenaries set up for assassination and “counter terror.” A Newsweek article in January 1970 described Phoenix as “a highly secret and unconventional operation that counters VC terror with terror of its own.” Robert Kaiser of the Washington Post reported Phoenix being called “an instrument of mass political murder…sort of Vietnamese Murder Inc.,” designed to terrorize the civilian population into submission.” 

Until 1970 the computerized VCI blacklist was a unilateral American operation. After the devastating 1968 Tet offensive, South Vietnamese President Thieu declared: “The VCI must be eliminated… and will be defeated by the Phoenix program.” Phoenix became a ruthless “bounty hunting” program to eliminate the opposition. The US and South Vietnamese created a list of tens of thousands of suspects for assassination. These names were centralized and distributed to Phoenix coordinators. From 1965-68 U.S. and Saigon intelligence services maintained an active list of Viet Cong cadre marked for assassination. The program for 1969 called for “neutralizing” 1800 a month. 

The VCI blacklist became corrupted by officers inserting their personal enemies’ names to get even. Due process was nonexistent. Names supplied by anonymous informers showed up on blacklists. CIA Director Colby admitted in 1971 that the blacklists had been “inaccurate.” Few senior VCI leaders were caught in the Phoenix net. Instead its victims were typically innocent civilians. A Pentagon-contract study found that, between 1970 and 1971, ninety-seven per cent of the Vietcong targeted by the Phoenix Program were of negligible importance. By 1973, Phoenix generated 300,000 political prisoners in South Vietnam. Military operations such as My Lai used Phoenix intelligence; in fact, the My Lai massacre, hardly an isolated incident, was itself a Phoenix operation. 

Apologists have offered rationales for Phoenix that sound eerily similar to those used to defend current drone attacks. Phoenix was typically referred to as a “scalpel” replacing the “bludgeon” of search and destroy, aerial bombardment or artillery barrages. Alternatively, it was called a precision “rifle shot rather than a shotgun approach to target key political leaders … and activists in VCI.” Military historian Dale Andrade explains, “Both SEALS and PRUs killed many VCI guerrillas – that was war. They also inevitably killed innocent civilians – that was regrettable…. but (Phoenix) operations were much more discerning than the massive affairs launched by conventional …forces. That fact was often lost in the rhetoric of assassination and murder …” 

Phoenix was created, organized, and funded by the CIA. Quotas were set by Americans. Informers were paid with US funds. The national system of identifying suspects, the elaboration of numerical goals and their use as measures of merit, was designed and funded by Americans. One former US Phoenix soldier conceded, “It was “heinous,” far worse than the things attributed to it.” 

Kill Lists from Phoenix to Latin America 

The US intelligence community formalized the lessons of the Phoenix Program in Vietnam by commissioning Project X, the Army’s top-secret program for transmitting Vietnam’s lessons to South America. By the mid-1970s, the Project X materials were going to armies all over the world. These were textbooks for global counterinsurgency and terror warfare. These included a murder manual, “Psychological Operations in Guerrilla Warfare,” which openly instructed in the assassination of public officials, and was distributed to the Nicaraguan Contras. Another manual, “Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual,” was used widely in Honduran counterrorism efforts. 

Use of the Project X material was temporarily suspended by Congress and the Carter administration for probable human rights violations, but the program was restored by the Reagan administration in 1982. By the mid-1980s, according to one detailed history, “counterguerrilla operations in Colombia and Central America would thus bear an eerie but explicable resemblance to South Vietnam.” 

What follows is a brief sketch of the widespread application of US-promulgated Phoenix-derived reigns of terror, kill lists, and death squads throughout Latin America and beyond. Much of this is familiar territory to many activists and scholars, and is merely the tip of the iceberg, but it merits review as a backdrop for the current context of kill lists and targeted assassination. 


The U.S. Army’s School of Americas (SOA), started in 1946, trained mass murderers and orchestrated coups in Peru, Panama, Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Mexico. The SOA trained more than 61,000 Latin American officers implicated in widespread slaughter of civilian populations across Latin America. From 1966-1976 the SOA trained hundreds of Latin American officers in Phoenix-derived methods. Between 1989-1991 the SOA issued almost 700 copies of Project X handbooks to at least ten Latin American countries, including Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Guatemala, and Honduras. In 2001, SOA was renamed Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHISC), but peace activists know it as School of Assassins. 

The CIA trained assassination groups such as Halcones in Mexico, the Mano Blanca in Guatemala, and the Escuadron de la Muerte in Brazil. In South America, in 1970-79, Operation Condor, the code-name for collection, exchange and storage of intelligence, was established among intelligence services in South America to eradicate Marxist activities. Operation Condor promoted joint operations including assassination against targets in member countries. In Central America, the CIA-supported death toll under the Reagan presidency alone exceeded 150,000. The CIA set up Ansesal and other networks of terror in El Salvador, Guatemala (Ansegat) and pre-Sandinista Nicaragua (Ansenic). 

Honduran death squads were active through the 1980s, the most infamous of which was Battalion 3–16, which assassinated hundreds of people, including teachers, politicians, and union leaders. Battalion 316 received substantial CIA support and training, and at least 19 members graduated from the School of the Americas. 

In Colombia, about 20,000 people were killed since 1986 and much of U.S. aid for counternarcotics was diverted to what Amnesty International labeled “one of the worst killing fields.” The US State Department also supported the Colombian army in creating a database of subversives, terrorists and drug dealers. 

In Bolivia, Amnesty International reported that from 1966-68 between 3,000 and 8,000 people were killed by death squads. The CIA supplied names of U.S. and other foreign missionaries and progressive priests. 

In Ecuador, the CIA maintained what was called the lynx list, aka the subversive control watch list of the most important left-wing activists to arrest. In Uruguay. Every CIA station maintained a subversive control watch list of most important left wing activists. From 1970-72 the CIA helped set up the Department of Information and Intelligence (DII), which served as a cover for death squads, and also co-ordinated meetings between Brazilian and Uruguayan death squads. 

In Nicaragua, the US provided illegal funds to the Contras, and Marine intelligence helped maintain a list of civilians marked for assassination when Contra forces entered the country. 

In Chile, 1970-73, CIA-created unions organized CIA-financed strikes leading to Allende’s overthrow and subsequent suicide. By late 1971 the CIA was involved in the preparation of lists of nearly 20,000 middle-level leaders of people’s organizations, scheduled to be assassinated after the Pinochet coup. 

In Haiti, U.S. officials with CIA backgrounds in Phoenix-like program activities coordinated with the Ton-Ton Macoute, “Baby Doc” Duvalier’s private death squad, responsible for killing at least 3,000 people. 

For over thirty years the US military and the CIA helped organize, train, and fund death squad activity in El Salvador. From 1980-93, at least 63,000 Salvadoran civilians were killed, mostly by the government directly supported by the U.S. The CIA routinely supplied ANSESAL, the security forces, and the general staff with electronic, photographic, and personal surveillance of suspected dissidents and Salvadorans abroad who were later assassinated by death squads. US militray involvement in El Salvador allowed “the lessons learned in Vietnam to be put into practice … assisting an allied country in counterinsurgency operations.” 

In Guatemala, as early as 1954, the U.S. Ambassador, after the CIA-orchestrated overthrow of the Arbenz government, gave to the new Armas government lists of radical opponents to be assassinated. Years later, throughout Guatemala’s 36-year civil war, Washington continuously to supported the Guatemalan military’s excesses against civilians, which killed 200,000 people. 

US Assassination Programs Exported to Other Countries

In Indonesia, 1965-66, the US embassy and the CIA provided the Indonesian military with lists of the names of PKI militants, which were used by Suharto to crush the PKI regime. This resulted in “one of the worst episodes of mass murder of the twentieth century,” with estimates as high as one million deaths. 

In Thailand, in 1976, the new junta used CIA-trained forces to crush student demonstrators during coup; two right-wing terrorist squads suspected for assassinations tied directly to CIA operations. 

In Iran, the CIA launched a coup installing the shah in power and helped establish the lethal secret police unit SAVAK. The CIA and SAVAK then exchanged intelligence, including information and arrest lists on the communist Tudeh party. Years later, in 1983, the CIA gave the Khomeni government a list of USSR KGB agents and collaborators operating in Iran, which the Khomeni regime used to execute 200 suspects and close down the communist Tudeh party. 

In the Philippines, in 1986, Reagan increased CIA involvement in Philippine counterinsurgency operations, carried out by more than 50 death squads. In 2001, before 9/11, the Bush administration sent a unit of SOF to the Philippines “to help train Philippine counter terrorist forces fighting against Muslim separatists” within groups like Abu Sayyaf. After 9/11 US-Filipino cooperation was stepped up and the ongoing separatist conflict was cast, to the benefit of both sides, as “the second front in the war on terror.” In Feb, 2012, a US drone strike targeting leaders of Abu Sayyaf and other separatist groups killed 15 people, the first use of killer drones in Southeast Asia. 

A “global Phoenix Program”: drone targets worldwide

“A global Phoenix program would provide a useful start point for a new strategic approach to the Global War on Terrorism” – David Kilcullen 


Despite the US-perpetrated counter terrorist slaughter in Latin America and elsewhere in the 1970s-1990s, the US Special Forces debacle in Mogadishu in 1993, popularized in the film Black Hawk Down, severely impacted US willingness to use Special Forces in counter terrorist missions for the next decade. But then, after 9/11, things changed drastically. On September 17, 2001, President Bush signed a secret Presidential finding authorizing the C.I.A. to create paramilitary teams to hunt, capture, detain, or kill designated terrorists almost anywhere in the world. The pressure from the White House, in particular from Vice-President Dick Cheney, was intense, and in the scramble, a search of the C.I.A.’s archives turned up – the Phoenix Program. 

In July 2002, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld sent an order for a plan to make sure that special forces could be authorized to use lethal force ‘in minutes and hours, not days and weeks.’” Rumsfeld prompted Bush to authorize the military to “find and finish” terrorist targets. Here he was referring to “the F3EA targeting cycle” used in anti-infrastructure operations by Special Operations Forces. F3EA, an abbreviation of find, fix, finish, exploit, analyze, utilizes comprehensive intelligence to “find a target amidst civilian clutter and fix his exact location . . . . enabling surgical finish operations … to catch a fleeting target.” 

Lt General William (Jerry) Boykin, Delta commander in Mogadishu, deputy undersecretary for Defense for Intelligence and a key planner of the Special Forces offensive in Iraq, announced, “We’re going after these people. Killing or capturing them … doing what the Phoenix program was designed to do, without all the secrecy.” 

Back in 1963, the CIA had supplied lists of communists to the Baath party coup so that communists could be rounded up and eliminated. Now, forty years later, it was the Baathists’ turn to be rounded up by Special Forces and CIA and executed. After the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the U.S. military notoriously developed a set of playing cards to help troops identify the most-wanted members of Saddam Hussein‘s government, mostly high-ranking Baath Party members. Less well-known was the secret targeted killing of thousands of Baathist civilians by US Special Forces. 

Seymour Hersh wrote in 2003 that “The Bush Administration authorized a major escalation of the Special Forces covert war in Iraq. … Its highest priority (being) the neutralization of the Baathist insurgents, by capture or assassination. A former C.I.A. station chief described the strategy: “The only way we can win is to go unconventional. We’re going to have to play their game. Guerrilla versus guerrilla. Terrorism versus terrorism. We’ve got to scare the Iraqis into submission.” The US even hired thousands of contract killers previously responsible for US-sponsored extra-judicial killings and death squad activity in Latin America. The operation—called “preëmptive manhunting” by one Pentagon adviser—had, according to Hersh, “the potential to turn into another Phoenix Program.” 

Global Phoenix

In 2009, the Office of the Secretary of Defense sponsored a paper by the National Defense Research Institute entitled “The Phoenix Program and Contemporary Counterinsurgency.” The paper notes, “The persistent insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan have generated fresh interest among military officers, policymakers, and civilian analysts in the history of counterinsurgency. The Phoenix Program in Vietnam—the U.S. effort to improve intelligence coordination and operations aimed at identifying and dismantling the communist underground—is the subject of much renewed attention.” 

The paper continues, “As the United States and its allies shift their focus to Afghanistan and weigh counterinsurgency alternatives for that country, decision-makers would be wise to consider how Phoenix-style approaches might serve to pry open Taliban and Al-Qaeda black boxes.”

Two key architects of the current Phoenix-style global counterinsurgency efforts by the US are David Kilcullen and Michael Vickers. David Kilcullen has been counterinsurgency advisor to two former Middle East commanders, General Stanley McChrystal (formerly head of Special Operations) and General David Petraeus, now CIA Director. Michael G. Vickers, made famous in the book and film Charlie Wilson’s War about the CIA’s anti-Soviet Afghan campaign of the 1980s, is currently Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, wielding such vast authority over the US war on terror that, according to a Washington Post profile, Pentagon colleagues refer to as his “take-over-the-world-plan.” 

Kilcullen wrote in a much-quoted 2004 paper entitled “Countering Global Insurgency” that “Counterinsurgency campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq have reawakened official and analytical interest in the Phoenix Program.” He proposed that “a global Phoenix program would provide a useful start point for a new strategic approach to the Global War on Terrorism,” one which would focus on “interdicting links between jihad theatres, denying sanctuary areas, isolating Islamists from local populations and disrupting inputs” from others. 

Vickers issued a Phoenix-style directive in December 2008 to “develop capabilities for extending U.S. reach into denied areas and uncertain environments by operating with and through indigenous foreign forces or by conducting low visibility operations.” “It’s not just the Middle East. It’s not just the developing world. It’s not just non-democratic countries – it’s a global problem. Threats can emanate from Denmark, the United Kingdom, you name it.” According to a Washington Post profile, “the most critical aspect of Vicker’s plan targeting al-Qaeda-affiliated networks around the world involves US Special Forces working through foreign partners to uproot and fight terrorism.” US military and Special Operations forces would “pay indigenous fighters and paramilitaries who work with them in gathering intelligence, hunting terrorists, fomenting guerrilla warfare or putting down an insurgency.” 

Pentagon colleagues have said of Vickers, “he tends to think like a gangster.” Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell revealed that getting Bin Laden in Pakistan was Vicker’s “baby,” and “more than anyone else in the department, he drove the issue.” In 2011 New York Times Vickers summarizes his strategy: “You make a deal with the devil to defeat another devil.” “I just want to kill those guys.” Such is the megalomaniacal mission underlying the US global war on terror, its kill lists and worldwide program of targeted assassination. 

Killer Drones Revisited

“Engaging in any assassination blurs the line between the good guys and the bad.” It is also “a proclamation of weakness and an admission of failure.” – John Jacob Nutter, The CIA’s Black Ops 

The purpose of this article is to reframe the current attention on killer drones and Obama’s “kill list” within an historical perspective. The goal here is not to discourage the escalating protest against killer drones or against Obama’s targeted assassination program around the globe. As stated at the outset, the unprecedented visibility of these nefarious activities and of the outraged public response to them is precisely what is needed at this time. This heightened awareness also affords a perfect opportunity to revisit the extraordinary history of US assassination and targeted killing that has led directly and explicitly to these activities. 

Focus on the drones alone will not be sufficient. For even the major counter terrorist mastermind David Kilcullen himself, an avid proponent of the global targeted killing program, has argued against the use of drones. In a 2009 New York Times editorial he argues that “The goal should be to isolate extremists from their communities; (they) must be defeated by indigenous forces…Drone strikes make this harder, not easier.” He adds, “The use of drones displays every characteristic of a tactic – or, more accurately, a piece of technology – substituting for a strategy, (with minimal understanding) of the tribal dynamics of the local population. This creates public outrage and a desire for revenge.” 

Scholar Maria Ryan, in a 2011 article entitled “War in Countries We Are Not at War With,” writes: “In 2006 the Pentagon announced that it had sent small teams of Special Operations troops to US embassies to gather intelligence on terrorism in Africa, South East Asia and South America. There is, then, a covert side to the Global War on Terrorism that is not visible and not currently knowable in the absence of whistleblowers, leaks, or things gone wrong.” 

The heightened public attention paid to drone killing might very well, in time, lead to some welcome success in curtailing their use. But too narrow a focus on the US deployment of Predator and Reaper drones might also distract us from other forms of Phoenix-derived targeted killing still being perpetrated globally – and covertly – by our Assassination Nation.


Illegitimate Sanctions on Iran


by Stephen Lendman

Washington bears full responsibility for imposing illegitimate sanctions on Iran. Other countries are pressured to agree. Doing so harms their own interests.

Heavy-handed US bullying largely gets its way. Rule of law principles and norms are violated. At issue is advancing Washington's imperium.

America's 1977 International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) lets presidents claim unusual and/or extraordinary foreign threats, declare a national emergency, and regulate commerce accordingly.

Presidents have taken full advantage deceptively, unjustifiably, and illegally.

In November 1979, Washington seized $12 billion in Iranian government bank deposits, securities, gold, and other properties. They included $5.6 billion held by overseas branches of US banks.

A full trade embargo followed. In January 1981, it was lifted under provisions of the Algiers Accords. Most Iranian assets were unblocked. Nonetheless, Iranian Assets Control Regulations remained in effect.

For decades, Washington ruthlessly targeted Iran and its people. It continues relentlessly today. More on that below.

Ronald Reagan imposed Iranian sanctions. Fraudulent pretexts were used. They included claiming Tehran supports international terrorism and aggressively acts against Persian Gulf shipping.

Reagan's 1987 Executive Order (EO) 12613 embargoed Iranian goods and services.

In March 1995, Clinton's EO 12957 prohibited US involvement with Iranian oil development. His 1995 EO 12959 substantially tightened sanctions further. His 1997 EO 13059 prohibited virtually all trade and investments with Iran.

In 1996, the Iran and Libya Sanctions Act (ILSA) became law. In 2006, it was renamed the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA).

It prohibited US and foreign oil development investments. Violators face stiff penalties. They include denial of Export-Import Bank of the United States help, rejection of export licenses, and a ban on all or some violating company imports.

In 2008, banks and other US depository institutions were prohibited from processing transfers between Iranian and non-Iranian banks.

In 2010, America's Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act (CISADA) became law. It extended sanctions imposed by the 1996 Iran Sanctions Act. It punishes companies doing business with Tehran's oil sector and went further.

Section 103 prohibited importing certain Iranian foodstuffs and carpets. Other provisions banned other Iranian product and service imports directly or through third countries

Exporting goods, technology, or services are prohibited, including from offshore locations. Some humanitarian related exceptions were made.

Overall, US individuals and companies located anywhere are prohibited from engaging in dealings of any kind. They include purchases, sales, transportation, swaps, financing, or brokering transactions related to goods or services of Iranian private or government origin.

On July 1, an EU oil import embargo took effect. It covers crude oil, petroleum and petrochemical products, oil related businesses, equipment and technology, selling Tehran's refined products, new investments, and dealing with its central bank.

Europe buys up to 20% of its oil from Iran. Ending it means greater strain on economically stressed countries. Higher prices exacerbate problems.

Washington granted India, Malaysia, South Korea, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Taiwan waivers. In March, other countries got 180-day exemptions. Currently, 20 nations have qualified waivers.

Japan increased its Iranian oil purchases. China relies on Iranian oil and buys it freely. So do other nations. On August 1, the House overwhelmingly (421 - 6) passed the Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Human Rights Act of 2012. The Senate passed it unanimously. Doing so mocks rule of law legitimacy.

New sanctions imposed include punishing financial institutions, insurers, and shippers involved in helping Iran sell oil. Previous loopholes were closed. An illegal embargo was tightened.

Prohibitions were enacted against companies involved in mining uranium with Iran; selling, leasing or providing oil tanker services; or offering insurance to the National Iranian Tanker Company.

Overall, the measure penalizes anyone involved with Iran's oil, petrochemical, or natural gas industries. Earlier sanctions imposed were hardened.

Ahead of the House vote, Obama ordered new sanctions on Iran's energy and financial sectors. By Executive Order he prohibited foreign financial institutions from doing business with Iran. Violators face stiff penalties.

Specifically, Iran's oil, petroleum products, and petrochemicals were targeted.

Separately, the Treasury Department sanctioned China's Bank of Kunlun and Iraq's Elaf Islamic Bank for providing financial services to Iranian banks.

Beijing reacted furiously. Relations between the two countries are strained. Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Washington violated "norms of international relations." 

"The U.S. has invoked domestic law to impose sanctions on a Chinese financial institution, and this is a serious violation of international rules that harms Chinese interests."

Sanctions and International Law

The General Assembly's 1974 Charter of Economic Rights and Duties of States says no nation may use or encourage use of economic, political or other measures to coerce another country to to subordinate its sovereign rights in any way. 

Under Part IV, Section 1, Chapter III, Article 54 of the Protocol 1 Additional to the Geneva Conventions (1977):  

(1) Starving civilians during war is prohibited. 

(2) Attacking, destroying, removing, or compromising indispensable items is prohibited. They include foodstuffs, crops, livestock, drinking water installations and supplies, irrigation works, and other essential products, services, and facilities relating to them. 

UN General Assembly Resolution 44/215 (1989) prohibits political and economic coercion against developing countries. 

It specifically covers trade and financial restrictions, blockades, embargoes, and other economic sanctions. It calls them incompatible with UN Charter provisions. They adversely affect the ability of nations to function politically, economically and socially. They harm civilians most.

The International Conference on Nutrition, World Declaration on Nutrition, Food and Agriculture Organization, and World Health Organization (1992) recognized the right to access nutritionally adequate and safe food as a fundamental right.

US Code defines international terrorism as follows:

A. "violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State;

B. appear to be intended -

i. to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;

ii. to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or

iii. to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and

C. occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States...."

The US Army Operational Concept for Terrorism (TRADOC Pamphlet No. 525-37, 1984) shortens the definition to be "the calculated use of violence or threat of violence to attain goals that are political, religious, or ideological in nature....through intimidation, coercion, or instilling fear."

Crimes against humanity breach fundamental international law. Civilian populations must be protected at all times.

Illegitimate sanctions harm human rights grievously. They violate international laws and norms. Targeting nonbelligerent countries ups the ante.

On July 31, Iranian lawmaker Seyyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini denounced Western sanctions, saying:

"The sanctions in the area of health and similar fields are a violation of human rights, and can be legally pursued."

On July 29, Iranian Presidential Center for International Legal Affairs head Majid Jafarzadeh said Tehran will take legal action against America and European countries.

"The complaint will be registered and pursued soon, based on international regulations," he said.

Ron Paul calls Iranian sanctions an act of war. The New New England Journal of Medicine called them "a war against public health." 

They also violate World Trade Organization (WTO) provisions. WTO members may curb trade with other nations for security reasons. Doing so on dealings with third countries has no legal legitimacy.

Iran is nonbelligerent. It's lawful and non-threatening. Its nuclear program complies fully with Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty provisions.

Challenging Washington in the WTO's Dispute Resolution Mechanism would likely succeed. 

Francis Boyle urges Iran to sue Washington, Britain and France at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) if they refuse to negotiate directly and continue making belligerent threats.

Add Israel and make it a quartet. It menaces the region.

In early July, Boyle told Press TV if someone refuses "to talk to you, sue them, and then they have to talk to you."

If Washington won't engage in direct negotiations, "Iran should sue at the World Court, protect itself, and then by means of the World Court proceeding, force negotiations which Iran can do."

If crisis conditions escalate, Iran should also sue Britain and France, said Boyle. It should request an "emergency hearing," and use it to prevent war or other belligerent acts.

A restraining order could be gotten. It would prevent "any type of blockade to prevent the imposition of further economic sanctions and pursuit of additional ones".

Blockades are acts of war. Multiples rounds of sanctions targeting vital state functions have similar effects if pushed too far. Ones in place now violate fundamental human rights.

They're illegal. Iran should sue. Unlike the International Criminal Court, ICJ rulings are more measured and just. It called Israel's Apartheid Wall illegal.

It ruled for Nicaragua during Washington's Contra war. It condemned American terrorism against its people. It awarded Managua $17 billion. Reagan administration officials ignore it. They then blocked Security Council enforcement.

Nonetheless, a precedent was set. It was repeated against Israel. Iran stands a good chance of prevailing. Proceeding posthaste is wise.


Mad Dog Leaders Threaten Humanity


by Stephen Lendman

Israel is very much involved in Washington's war on Syria. At issue is destroying another independent state, murdering thousands, planning more wars, and threatening the entire region and beyond.

Iran is next in line. Sabre rattling combines with war by other means. It includes sanctions, subversion, instability, cyberwar, targeted assassinations, other disruptive actions, and relentless scoundrel media vilification and fear-mongering.

On August 3, Haaretz headlined "King Bibi in trouble." Poll numbers show a 60% disapproval rating. It's not for institutionalized militarism and belligerence. It's about new budget cuts hardening neo-liberal harshness.

Most Israelis are fed up with what harms their well-being. Their narrow definition omits likely blow-back from regional wars and more planned. Conflict rages cross border in Syria. If attacked, Hezbollah can respond in kind.

Key is whether Israel plans bombing Iran's nuclear facilities. Doing so is lawless, madness, and self-destructive. Nonetheless, heated rhetoric suggests it's possible.

On August 2, Haaretz headlined "Ex-Mossad chief said what should be clear to everyone - Israel has never been so close to attacking Iran," saying:

According to Ephraim Halevy, "if I were an Iranian, I would be very worried about the Israeli talk about a possible attack, because Israel's threats sound serious and credible to me."

No longer publicly active, he may or may not know what's planned. Haaretz said he's not "another establishment stooge." Nor is he "gung-ho." 

He's wise enough not to reveal state secrets. Perhaps he commented because someone asked. Once a Mossad insider, always one. Iranian officials will parse his comments carefully. 

On August 1, Mossad-connected DEBKAfile (DF) headlined "Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Warns Iran's Top Leaders: WAR IN WEEKS," saying:

Before Friday, July 27 prayers, he "summoned top Iranian military chiefs for what he called 'last war council.' "

DF claims he told them "we will be at war within weeks." Allegedly he ordered high alert readiness, fortifying Iran's nuclear facilities, and retaliatory responses.

Only high level insiders know Israeli intentions. Sabre rattling and inflammatory rhetoric went on for years. It's heard regularly now. So far, belligerence hasn't follow bluster. Whether things now are different remains to be seen.

On August 3, Haaretz headlined "As Netanyahu pushes Israel closer to war with Iran, Israelis cannot keep silent," saying:

"Why aren't ministers and defense officials standing up right now, when it is still possible, and saying: We will not be a party to this megalomaniacal vision, to this messianic-catastrophic worldview?"

As important is why militarism, belligerence, and denigration of Muslims define Israeli policies. Why is war institutionalized? 

Why does a nation treat one-fifth of its people like fifth column threats? Why are non-Jews persecuted? Why do decades of occupation repression continue?

Why do only elitist Jews matter at the expense of all others? Why does a tiny state threaten other regional nations? Why do world leaders permit it? How can any responsible official contemplate catastrophic war if launched?

Haaretz suggests "Netanyahu has a historical mindset (and) outlook under which....Israel is 'the eternal nation' and the United States" is just one among many.

In other words, "(w)e are everlasting, we are an eternal people, and they, despite all their strength and power, are merely temporary and ephemeral."

Megalomania and delusions of grandeur define this type thinking. Past leaders governing this way perished by the same sword they lived by. It always turned out that way. 

Tiny Israel is a dot in an ocean of justifiable resentment. One step too far may bite back harder than what Netanyahu and others around him imagine.

His governing style is autocratic, said Haaretz. He thinks he holds Israel's destiny in his hands. He may end up fiddling while it burns. His hermetic world-view rigidity may end up its undoing.

He'll take an entire nation and others over a cliff with him. Perhaps he'll end up like Caligula. Delusions of grandeur and tyrannical harshness got him assassinated. His own Praetorian Guard did him in.

Netanyahu heads Israel's most extremist ever government. It’s racist, repressive, elitist and fascist. Democracy is more hypocrisy than real. 

Hard-liners around him share his vision. Most Israelis want peace, not war. They have no say. Their fate hangs in his hands. It's their country, their security, and their future.

Don’t they understand the consequences of attacking Iran? Have they no sense that "bomb or be bombed" rhetoric is belligerent bombast? Don’t they know destructive policies sometimes follow?

Iran threatens no one. It's nuclear program is peaceful. Every Israeli and Western leader knows it. Saying otherwise hides dark side intentions. 

Why don't knowledgeable people speak out? Why don't opposition officials do it? Why don't they stand up for what's right? Why don't they stop this madness before it's too late?

Have they no sense of the stakes? Don't they care enough to try? Are loyalty and daily priorities more important than survival? Are millions of Israeli lives and others in the region unimportant? 

Why haven't Israelis protested publicly en masse? Why won't they act in their own behalf? 

Poet Hayyim Bialik (1873 - 1934) once wrote about "with heart's blood and marrow pay(ing) the price of the blaze." A century later he'd have had weapons of mass destruction in mind.

A Final Comment

IDF chief of staff General Benny Gantz believes Iran won't develop nuclear weapons. He's concerned about launching an attack. He called Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other Iranian leaders rational. They're not dangerous extremists bent on war.

Netanyahu is mirror opposite. He said governments make policies, not generals. Their job is taking orders and obeying. Other times they're asked for advice. Prime ministers and cabinet members can accept or reject it.

George Clemenceau once said "war is too important to be left to the generals." In Israel, some have more good sense than politicians. The same holds for America. Delusional leaders can't wait to shed more blood.

Gantz calls unilateral Israeli action ill-conceived. Other current and past IDF generals and intelligence officials share his view. Many in America feel the same way.

Instead of waging wars, preventing them should be prioritized. When leaders able to cause mass destruction behave like delusional mad dogs and pigs, stopping them matters most.


Israelis Against War on Iran

by Stephen Lendman - mathaba.net

Polls show most Israelis and Americans oppose war with Iran. Political leaders pay no attention nor ask why Iran, with or without nuclear weapons, would strike Israel or any other country?

Iran hasn't attacked another nation in over 200 years. It threatens none now. It's not developing or producing nuclear weapons. Washington, Israeli, and most other world leaders know it.

Iran's nuclear program is red herring cover. It's used as pretext to replace an independent state with a subservient pro-Western one. It's also about furthering Israeli regional dominance.

Waging full-scale war on Syria and/or Iran is madness. War with either country is all lose, no gain, and potential catastrophic consequences if things spin out of control. Warmongers push ahead with plans anyway.

Israel will be gravely affected if they're implement. Why else would most Israelis oppose war and Netanyahu for threatening it. Last spring, hundreds marched in Tel Aviv against it. They chanted anti-Netanyahu slogans and railed against AIPAC.

They never went away. Expect them back. They're joined by many others. On August 16, Haaretz headlined "Hundreds of Israelis petition IDF pilots: Refuse orders to bomb Iran, saying: Tel Aviv law professors Menachem Mautner and Chaim Gans joined them. Petition language calls attacking Iran a "highly mistaken gamble."

Besides fundamental legal issues, at best it will delay, not destroy, Iran's nuclear program. Doing so also exacts "an exorbitant price."

Petition language said "No." 

"Certainly, this is not a simple option. It involves profound professional and moral dilemmas, and carries the risk of losing a career which is important to you and also the possibility of being prosecuted." 

"Nevertheless, it is your duty to consider most carefully and seriously the possibility that by saying the little word 'No,' you will be rendering an important and vital service to the State of Israel and all who live here. This service would be infinitely more important than blind obedience to this particular order."

The petition also explained that bombing Iran's nuclear facilities involves irradiating large areas. Doing so harms civilians. "Israel as a country, as well as those carrying out the bombing might be charged with war crimes."

Professor Gans explained why he signed the petition, saying: "It is clear that the consequences of (war on Iran) would be destructive in every possible way."

Haaretz said Physicians for Human Rights-Israel and senior Israeli "health establishment" doctors wrote Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak. They oppose war. They expressed fears of unavoidable catastrophic consequences.

They said "we will be the ones you will seek out to heal and put together what you have broken. We call on you: Don't break. First do no harm."

On August 16, Israeli Ynet News headlined "Flurry of petitions against strike on Iran," saying:

Resistance to war appears growing. Twenty IDF reserve officers wrote Netanyahu. They expressed concerns like others. Imminent dangers focus minds on what's not previously considered. 

Hopefully it's a good sign. It better be in dealing with sociopaths impersonating leaders. Netanyahu and Barak are two of the worst. No one's safe with them in charge.

On August 15, Richard Silverstein wrote about "Bibi's Secret War Plan." He published "an important leaked Israeli government document." A "trusted source" sent it. He's a "former Israeli government minister." He got it from an IDF officer.

He sent it because he and his source oppose war. He revealed it to expose Israeli leadership plans "to take Israel to war." His "mission" is to prevent it. He said no Israeli official denied the authenticity of what he revealed.

His source said he normally wouldn't leak this type document. "These are not normal times," he explained. "I'm afraid Bibi and Barak are dead serious."

Silverstein calls them a "two-headed warrior." Monster would be more appropriate. Virtually no "senior (Israeli) military or intelligence officer wants this war." It's unlikely current officials wrote the leaked material.

"It feels more likely it came from….national security advisor Yaakov Amidror, a former general, settler true-believer, and Bibi confidant." Barak acolytes perhaps also were involved.

Material was prepared for Netanyahu's eight-member security cabinet. They stand "4-3" against war. Bibi's pitching recalcitrant ministers. He's manipulating them to go along. His argument is that Israel can wage "a pure technology war" with few Israeli casualties.

His "sleight of hand" omits a certain Iranian counterattack. Silverstein calls what Netanyahu and Barak have in mind a "product of the Israeli dream factory."

It manufactures threats and clean strategies to address them. It never produces what's promised. Mission accomplished may be catastrophic. This genie can't be rebottled if unleashed.

Silverstein translated from the original Hebrew. Key portions are as follows:

"The Israeli attack will open with a coordinated strike, including an unprecedented cyber-attack which will totally paralyze the Iranian regime and its ability to know what is happening within its borders."  

"The internet, telephones, radio and television, communications satellites, and fiber optic cables leading to and from critical installations—including underground missile bases at Khorramabad and Isfahan—will be taken out of action."  

"The electrical grid throughout Iran will be paralyzed and transformer stations will absorb severe damage from carbon fiber munitions which are finer than a human hair, causing electrical short circuits whose repair requires their complete removal."  

"This would be a Sisyphean task in light of cluster munitions which would be dropped, some time-delayed and some remote-activated through the use of a satellite signal."

"A barrage of tens of ballistic missiles would be launched from Israel toward Iran. 300km ballistic missiles would be launched from Israeli submarines in the vicinity of the Persian Gulf."  

"The missiles would not be armed with unconventional warheads [WMD], but rather with high-explosive ordnance equipped with reinforced tips designed specially to penetrate hardened targets."

"The missiles will strike their targets—some exploding above ground like those striking the nuclear reactor at Arak–which is intended to produce plutonium and tritium—and the nearby heavy water production facility; the nuclear fuel production facilities at Isfahan and facilities for enriching uranium-hexaflouride. Others would explode under-ground, as at the Fordo facility."

"A barrage of hundreds of cruise missiles will pound command and control systems, research and development facilities, and the residences of senior personnel in the nuclear and missile development apparatus. Intelligence gathered over years will be utilized to completely decapitate Iran’s professional and command ranks in these fields."

"After the first wave of attacks, which will be timed to the second, the “Blue and White” radar satellite, whose systems enable us to perform an evaluation of the level of damage done to the various targets, will pass over Iran."  

"Only after rapidly decrypting the satellite’s data, will the information be transferred directly to war planes making their way covertly toward Iran."  

"These IAF planes will be armed with electronic warfare gear previously unknown to the wider public, not even revealed to our U.S. ally.  This equipment will render Israeli aircraft invisible."  

"Those Israeli war planes which participate in the attack will damage a short-list of targets which require further assault."

"Among the targets approved for attack—Shihab 3 and Sejil ballistic missile silos, storage tanks for chemical components of rocket fuel, industrial facilities for producing missile control systems, centrifuge production plants and more."

Despite a detailed battle plan, USC Chemical Engineering Professor Muhammad Sahimi explained flaws. Current Iranian Revolutionary Guards head Mohammad Ali Jafari addressed what he called the over-centralization of command and control. 

He divided Iran into 31 districts. Each operates independently. To succeed, Israel would have to destroy or disable all. Doing so seems unlikely, especially before Tehran can respond defensively.

If Israel strikes, Netanyahu's waging the last war. Iranian generals learned from Saddam's mistakes. Even with "new tricks" up his sleeve, Netanyahu doesn't know his adversary, its defenses, its structure, and overall preparedness to hit back hard. Attacking Iran assures no winners.

A Final Comment

On August 15, The New York Times suggested a window of opportunity exists to avoid war. Uzi Dayan was quoted. He formerly served as IDF deputy chief of staff. He's Moshe Dayan's nephew. He said:

"This window is closing, but if the United States would be much clearer and stronger about the sanctions on one hand and about what can happen if Iran won’t make a U-turn - there is not a lot of time, but there is still time to make a difference."

On August 13, Dayan met with Netanyahu and Barak privately. They discussed current security issues. Iran was topic one. A media blitz awakened Israelis to the impending danger. They responded by opposing war.

Dayan thinks Netanyahu/Barak saber rattling has a purpose. It's pushing Obama to do more. It's about imposing more punishing sanctions than now in place. The only way is by creating a likely military option.

Both Israeli officials also want Washington leading an eventual attack. They're uncertain how successful Israel can be alone. America's might could make the difference. No matter that war with Iran assures no winners.

Dayan added that Netanyahu and Barak will choose war "only if they feel that there is no other way. They will do it only as the last, last thing, but then they will be pretty determined about it."

Once again, The Times suppressed what readers most need to know. It bears repeating. Iran has no nuclear weapons program. It threatens no one. Attacking nonbelligerent states violates fundamental international law. 

Nations doing so stand guilty of war crimes. If large numbers of civilians are harmed, add crimes against humanity. If numbers run into the millions or close to it, genocide charges are warranted. 

Responsible journalists would explain and condemn what they tacitly or overtly support. Failure makes them complicit in crimes too grave to ignore.

The American Way 

by Stephen Lendman – mathaba.net

Past and present leaders reveal the soul of their nations. Arguably America never had one. Current domestic and foreign policies provide convincing evidence.

Police state harshness targets defenders of right over wrong everywhere. National resources go for militarism, belligerence, and making super-rich elites richer. Corporations are licensed to steal, exploit, and plunder. 

Wars ravage one country after another. Humanity is ruthlessly destroyed. Battlefields shift from one theater to another. Gangsterism writ large reflects official policy. Syria is ground zero.

Months of Western generated violence left thousands dead, many more injured, and countless numbers displaced. Nothing deters America's war machine madness. 

Bloodlust defines it. Dominance matters most. Body counts mount. Rule of law principles and democratic values are considered quaint and out of date. Stomping on people is policy.

Concern for human and civil rights is off the table. Winning hearts and minds was never America's game. Crushing the will to resist is more important. Repression enforces the message harshly. Death squad diplomacy eliminates non-believers. Where it ends, who knows!

Despite ongoing direct and proxy wars, hawkish US lawmakers want more. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman are three of America's worst. Peace they believe is abhorrent. 

Death squad massacres in Syria aren't enough. As a 2008 presidential candidate, McCain's advocated bombing Iran. "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran," he sang on his "Straight Talk" tour to the tune of a popular Beach Boys song.

Lunatics like this run America. Now McCain wants more. So do Graham and Lieberman. They're not alone. On August 5, the Washington Post gave them op-ed space. Together they headlined "The risks of inaction in Syria," saying:

Provide "robust assistance" to opposition fighters. Establish and reinforce safe zones. Use "airpower and other unique US assets."

Damn the risks. "(I)naction carries" greater ones. "(S)trategic" aims matter most. Failure to intervene more aggressively "jeopardiz(es) both our national security interests and our moral standing in the world."

Fact check

Official US policy calls for replacing all independent governments with pro-Western ones. War is America's national pastime. Dominance alone matters. Sovereign rights can't be allowed to interfere.

Washington planned war on Syria years ago. It's orchestrating events on the ground. It's been involved from day one. It's recruiting, arming, funding, training, and directing mercenary killers. 

It's not good enough so let's bomb, say McCain, Graham and Lieberman. With these type lawmakers influencing policy, don't bet money on humanity surviving. Don't expect America to renounce war. Don't imagine embracing democratic values is planned. 

Hunker down for worse to come. Get involved and try to stop it. Syria is about to go up in flames. Iran is next, then other nations. No good ending comes from this. Wars beget more of them. Permanent ones assure self-destruction. 

Perhaps America will take humanity with it. It's not far-fetched. Partnered with Britain, other key NATO allies, Israel, and regional despots, chances of armageddon are too high to risk. 

Chances for homeland tyranny are virtually certain. Militarism writ large heads it there. It's closer than most people imagine. It's not pretty now. Expect much worse ahead. It could come any time. 

Battleground Syria could shift venues to America if popular resistance erupts. Daily violence and atrocities there could become commonplace domestically. Some neighborhoods already experience low intensity versions of what could easily ratchet higher.

Hammering one country after another draws it closer. Former State Department official Anne-Marie Slaughter mimicks McCain, Graham and Lieberman. Halting Syrian violence depends on increasing it, they believe.

People like this run America. They're interviewed on US television. They're given feature op-ed space. Earlier, Slaughter called for "no-kill zones." Pentagon officials call them "buffer zones." They're ground-based no-fly zones. If established, they assure full-scale war.

Slaughter supports no holds barred escalation. On July 31, her Financial Times article headlined "We will pay a high price if we do not arm Syria's rebels," saying:

She wants that and more. "It is time for bold action," she said. She suggests Libya 2.0. Go for broke, she urges. Other hawks echo her sentiment. "Syrians will remember those who remember them," she said.

The longer fighting rages, the greater Assad's support grows, the more America is hated.

Syrians aren't stupid. They know what Washington did to Iraq and Libya. They know what's gone on in Afghanistan since 2001. They understand that wherever America arrives, death, destruction, and unspeakable human misery follow. 

If Washington wins, they lose. They're willing to die to prevent it. America plans full-scale war. Imagine how many more will die. Imagine the vast destruction. Imagine any nation ravaging others. It's the American way.

Permanent wars are waged for wealth, power and dominance. At the same time, homeland needs go begging. Out-of-control militarism heads America for tyranny and ruin. Along the way, millions suffer and die.

Obama follows in the tradition of previous warrior presidents. Over time, stakes and risks grow exponentially. State-of the art weapons threaten everyone. Obama's National Security Strategy "reserve(s) the right to act unilaterally if necessary to defend out nation and our interests."

In other words, preemptive wars with weapons of mass destruction is policy. Obama claims it's "to keep the American people safe (and advance the nation's) values and ideals." It threatens other countries to bend to Washington's will or else.

In the process it destroys freedom. Chalmers Johnson called war profiteering "the most efficient means for well-connected capitalists to engorge themselves at the public trough." 

Expect more of it, he warned. Expect tyranny to replace democracy. Expect hell on earth so globalists can control it. Maybe they'll destroy it instead.

Amerika’s Future is Death

"The day we see truth and do not speak, is the day we begin to die" (Martin Luther King)

August 20, 2012 -- "Information Clearing House"

Conspiracy theories have now blossomed into what the smug presstitute media calls a “conspiracy culture.” According to the presstitutes, Americans have to find some explanation for their frustrations and failings, so Americans shift the blame to the Bilderbergers, the Rothschilds, the New World Order and so forth and so on.

Readers will not be surprised that I disagree with the presstitutes. Indeed, the conspiracy culture is the product of the presstitute media’s failure to investigate and to report truthfully. I am certain that the Western media is worse than the Soviet media was. The Soviet media devised ways for helping the public to read between the lines, whereas the Western media is so proud to be confidants of the government that they deliver the propaganda without any clues to the readers that it is propaganda.

Americans have been fed lies by “their” government and the government’s presstitute media for so long that it is not surprising that Americans increasingly believe that there is a conspiracy operating against them. Millions of Americans have been evicted from their jobs, careers, and homes while the crooks who stole from them run free and bankroll the presidential candidates. The world as millions of Americans knew it has come to an end, and no one has been held accountable. The explanation that Americans get from the media is that it is their own fault. They bought houses they shouldn’t have bought, and they didn’t train for the right jobs. It is not unreasonable for Americans to conclude that a conspiracy is operating against them.

Americans are told that “their” government cannot afford to help them because of the budget deficit and the burden on our grandchildren. But Americans see the trillions of dollars that are lavished on banksters, on wars, and on Homeland Security. Why is a police state and another attack on another Muslim country more important than keeping Americans in their jobs and in their homes?

The 11th anniversary of 9/11 is less than a month away. Will the presstitute media remind Americans that the government has spent $6 trillion of Americans’ money in out-of-pocket and already incurred future costs as the expense of invading and trying to occupy Afghanistan and Iraq, all to no effect except to enrich the managements and shareholders of the military security complex at the cost of destroying the reputation of the United States and putting Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block?

No, of course not. The spiel will be about our brave troops who are fighting and dying to make the world safe for democracy and women’s rights. Washington will wrap itself in the flag and exhort Americans to “support our troops” in the orchestrated war of the day. Hitlery Clinton still gets on the moral high horse and rails at China and Russia, but all the world sees is hypocrisy. No one, not even Washington’s puppet governments, any longer takes Washington’s moralizing as anything more than a mask for domination by force alone. Democracy, Washington declares, comes out of the barrel of a gun.

Today moralizing is all about money, but not for the 99%. The 99% cannot find good jobs or earn anything on their savings, because the economy is run for the 1%. University graduates cannot get jobs and pay off their student loans. Retraining for the millions of Americans whose jobs were shipped offshore or filled by foreigners brought in on H1-B visas has proved to be a fraud, as there are no jobs for the retrained displaced long-term discouraged American work force. The official jobs projection by the US government is that few university graduates are needed in the work force, so the old mantra that “education is the answer” is just another lie from the Ivy League economic departments who sell the establishment’s lies for money.

Any American citizen accustomed to travel America’s “wide open spaces” prior to 9/11 must be astonished by the sudden rise of the intrusive Homeland Security, a gestapo-sounding name if there ever was one. Porno-scans and genital feel-ups have spread from airports to bus and train stations and to the public highways, despite the absence of terrorist events. No one in their right mind could possibly think that a 90-year old grandmother in a wheel chair is a terrorist whose diaper needs to be checked or that blond and blue-eyed parents would have strapped a bomb around their 5-year old daughter’s waist. No one except the gestapo Department of Homeland Security.

Even some of the gullible flag-waving patriotic conservatives are beginning to wonder about all the security. The reports that the Department of Homeland Security has ordered 750 million rounds of people-killing ammunition are puzzling even those conservatives who have been taking vicarious pleasure in the slaughter of “towel-heads.”

Why does the Department of Homeland Security need enough ammunition to shoot every American 2.5 times? Why is Homeland Security equipping itself with full-body armor? Why is Homeland Security acquiring new laser technology that can “instantly know everything about you from 164 feet away?” A new army manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” describes how the military is to be used domestically within the US to put down protests, confiscate firearms and kill citizens.

The police state that is being constructed in “freedom and democracy” America is without parallel in history. When the only terrorists are dupes organized by the FBI, it is clear that the purpose of the police state is not to protect Americans from Muslim terrorists. The purpose of the police state is to terrorize US citizens.

It is not only Homeland Security that is being militarized. The government reported that a large ammunition order was made by the National Weather Service, later updated to have been the Fisheries Office. If you are surprised at this, why has the Social Security Administration ordered 174,000 rounds of hollow-point bullets?
