Trump : War and Peace

Clearly, Trump is not in control of the most important part of his agenda—peace with the thermo-nuclear powers and cessation of interference in the affairs of other countries.

Even the Pentagon would probably be reluctant to go to war with either Russia or China, but the monkey on its back – the military industrial complex – needs to have its periodic fix in order to sustain itself. Simply put, there is big, unaccountable money in war, or even just the shadow of it; and war is not only a racket, but a psychopathic addiction,

The military/security complex is using its puppets in the House of Representatives and the Senate to generate renewed conflict with Iran and to continue threats against China.

And Trump cannot simultaneously make peace with Russia and make war on Iran and China.

The Obama Legacy

obama-bomb2

~ article by John Steppling (edited)

”….There was a jaw dropping but not unexpected article in The Guardian  this week. It was actually part of a series that has sought to manufacture a legacy for Obama, the outgoing president, since his actual legacy is one of imperialist foreign policy, CIA support of jihadists, right wing coups, and most acutely, perhaps, a massive subverting of free speech and civil liberties…..

How is it possible to become so alarmed by Trump, while supporting Democrats? Those millions on the street protesting the looming invasion of Iraq must have noticed that every single Democrat in government voted FOR the invasion (save for the honorable Barbara Lee). And yet here they all are wringing their hands in dismay that Hillary lost. Here they are constantly repeating the litanies of Trump evil and never noticing the crimes of earlier Democratic presidents and administrations. So, yes Trump’s appointments are awful. But I refuse to even dig into that until Obama’s appointments are discussed and dissected. First came Rahm Emanuel, former member of the IDF, all around thug and bully and lover of never ending war to help expand Israeli power. Penny Pritzker, heiress and elitist and friend to the 1%, or Robert Rubin or Tim Geithner (!!!) or Tom Daschle, the senator from Citibank. I’m just scratching the surface. Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. The point is that I am coming to feel that almost any focus on Trump feels misplaced. Certainly now it does since he isn’t even president yet…

The deconstruction of liberal Obama is far from complete and the propaganda apparatus is working overtime to rewrite not just recent history, but the present. And the anti Russian propaganda is so absurd, so transparent, that this feels far more important than the predictable stupidity of Trump. I mean Obama is massing troops near the Russian border. Obama is ramping up the building of purpose built naval bases near China. Obama is still looking to prosecute whistle-blowers, and he is still signing draconian legislation to curb free speech and institutionalize legitimacy for the new McCarthyism. Talking about Trump is a form of forgetting. I can’t do it. And if there is an easier target for parody or even non parodic narrative than Donald Trump, I haven’t met them. And easy is never an act of rigorous self examination…

The manufacturing of an image of a culture, rather than an actual culture, is what organs of disinformation such as The Guardian are in the business of doing. And this is also what Hollywood does, of course……..”

obama-bomb

In the year 2016 alone, the Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs. That’s equivalent to the US military blasting combatants or civilians overseas with 72 bombs every day last year. That’s three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day….

Hillary Clinton : A Verdict

hillary(edited extract from an article by Brandon Martinez,  ‘Non-Aligned Media’)

Before people get too upset about the defeat of Hillary Clinton, they should perhaps reflect on her record at the State Department – as a war-criiminal and corrupt enabler of the Zionist / Neocon ‘New World Order’ project.

Amongst other things…

…”She used her office to continuously aid and abet the genocide in the Congo, arming the Ugandan and Rwandan armies and the M23 militia now rampaging through the eastern Congo committing atrocities and mass-rape. She likewise consented to the demolishing of villages in both the Congo and South Sudan to make room for the mining operations of the same Canadian/Swedish company – the Lundin Group – that donated $100 million to the Clinton Foundation. She had UN Ambassador Susan Rice block and veto a UN report in 2010 that exposed the atrocities of those Clinton was arming.

She orchestrated, along with a cabal of other “humanitarian” liberal interventionists and Zionist/Neocons, the bombing and meddling in Libya which led to the arming of fanatic Wahhabist rebels and militias that have descended a once-prosperous country into civil war and plunder by vulturous bankers and multinationals; that led to the mass-slaughter of Bedouin and Berber tribes loyal to Gaddafi, to racist mass-murder of the indigenous Blacks of Fezzan and gangs hunting down Sub-Saharan African migrants. The war and economic vulture policies of her and others in Libya and elsewhere was a major contributing factor to unleashing the migrant crisis now enveloping Europe.

She ensured through her office in the State Department, that the Clinton Foundation’s embezzled millions that were supposed to go towards Haitian earthquake relief in 2010, were instead used to rig an election in Haiti for a corrupt local robber-baron and ensure her brother Tony Rodham was awarded a lucrative mining deal through which he can loot from already-impoverished Haiti of even more of its natural wealth while the Haitian masses continue to suffer.

She used her office at the State Department to ensure that her corporate friends at Boeing could sell F-15s to Saudi Arabia in December 2011, knowing these would immediately be used by the Saudis to bomb, strafe and murder thousands of Yemenis and to further wreck destruction of the natural, architectural and cultural treasures of Yemen. She likewise used her office to ensure there would be no UN censoring of the atrocities and human rights abuses committed by her friends the Saudi government, which funded the Clinton Foundation to the tune of millions.

She spearheaded a Honduran military coup that overthrew the democratically-elected Manuel Zelaya in 2009, and personally used her State Department via USAID to spend over $26 million on a propaganda campaign “Honduras Convive” meant to serve as nothing but a PR campaign to justify, hide and abet the atrocities of the new regime’s “security” forces against Hondurans, including indigenous activists, and which oversaw the huge spike in homicides.

She repeatedly used her State Department to aid, abet and justify Israeli bombings and crimes against the Palestinians in Gaza; she continuously acted like a faithful lapdog to AIPAC and Benjamin Netanyahu in subverting U.S. interests to those of Israel. (Not that Trump will be any different in that regard.)

She repeatedly championed domestic policies and trade policies that have harmed working-class communities of all races and inner-cities; meanwhile she was taking millions in stolen blood-money from her sugar-daddies at Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and Wells Fargo, the same criminal banks that wrecked the economy, looted from other economies and now profit from the Dakota Pipeline.

This is without mentioning her use of the State Department to arm and fund the rebel groups in Syria that have led to and exacerbated the death and destruction in that country; or her use of the State Department to meddle in and subvert the political process in the Ukraine (not that Putin’s Russia is innocent, either); or as U.S. Senator from New York her support for the Iraq war, with the smooth transition of murderous PNAC Neocons like Victoria Nuland and Robert Kagan right into her State Department; or her infamous “super predator” racism and constant taking-for-granting of votes from Black and Latino communities, even while continuously pursuing the same racist economic and crime laws meant to target exactly those communities.

Those protesting and rioting right now because they are more concerned about Donald Trump’s words and rhetoric, but cannot find it amidst their crocodile tears and their myopic self-absorbed selective moral outrages to even have an iota of anger at Hillary Clinton’s track-record of actual murderous policies, are seriously indicative of some of what’s wrong with the state of modern America, and the bankruptcy of their own ideology whose outer rhetorical shell masks the inherent reality of their own paternalistic racism, “humanitarian” militarism and bourgeois trendy consumerism….”

Worst Year Ever ?

che9

It seems to be the fashion, especially among the young, naive and imperfectly educated, to describe 2016, ludicrously, as ”the worst ever year”.

Even the latest TV ad for the de-sensitizing brainwash ‘game’ Call of Duty cynically makes use of this grossly flawed (and self-righteous) interpretation of events. Presumably the reference is to Brexit and Trump, two historic blows delivered by ordinary voters to the neo-liberal, corporatist establishment. Now protesters are on the street, ridiculously demonstrating – against what ? – absurdly, against the democratically-expressed dissatisfaction of austerity-hammered people !

What a testament to the efficiency of neo-liberal brainwashing it is, that well-meaning people actually feel moved to protest against, of all things, a predominantly working-class, grass-roots rejection of the kleptocratic elite’s globalist, neo-feudal agenda.


”Those protesting and rioting right now because they are more concerned about Donald Trump’s words and rhetoric, but cannot find it amidst their crocodile tears and their myopic self-absorbed selective moral outrages to even have an iota of anger at Hillary Clinton’s track-record of actual murderous policies, are seriously indicative of some of what’s wrong with the state of modern America, and the bankruptcy of their own ideology whose outer rhetorical shell masks the inherent reality of their own paternalistic racism, “humanitarian” militarism and bourgeois trendy consumerism.” ~ (Brandon Martinez, Non-Aligned Media)

The End of The Empire

PUTIN AND XI

In a particularly significant speech –  on July 1st, republished on Chinese websites, but little reported in the West –  Chinese President Xi Jinping baldly stated :

“The world is on the brink of radical changes. We see how the EU is gradually crumbling and the US economy is collapsing. This will end in a new world order. So, in ten years we will have a new world order unlike anything before, in which the key will be the Union of Russia and China…

”We are now witnessing aggressive actions by the United States against Russia and China. I believe that Russia and China may form an alliance before which NATO will be powerless, and it will put an end to the imperialist aspirations of the West….”

Xi went on to state that ”China advocates people of all countries joining together to change pressure into power, risks into opportunities, and replace confrontation with cooperation, and monopolies with win-win deals.”

It is apparent that once ‘elected’, neither Zio-warrior Clinton nor ‘Nuke-em’ Trump can expect anything like a clear run for the stalled military-industrial imperialist agenda.

Things could get very messy indeed….

Deal With It

Why the British said no to Europe

by John Pilger

( extract ~ full text linked below )

”The majority vote by Britons to leave the European Union was an act of raw democracy. Millions of ordinary people refused to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by their presumed betters in the major parties, the leaders of the business and banking oligarchy and the media.

The most effective propagandists of the “European ideal” have not been the far right, but an insufferably patrician class for whom metropolitan London is the United Kingdom. Its leading members see themselves as liberal, enlightened, cultivated tribunes of the 21st century zeitgeist, even “cool”. What they really are is a bourgeoisie with insatiable consumerist tastes and ancient instincts of their own superiority. In their house paper, The Guardian, they have gloated, day after day, at those who would even consider the EU profoundly undemocratic, a source of social injustice and a virulent extremism known as “neoliberalism”.

The aim of this extremism is to install a permanent, capitalist theocracy that ensures a two-thirds society, with the majority divided and indebted, managed by a corporate class, and a permanent working poor. In Britain today, 63 per cent of poor children grow up in families where at least one member is working. For them, the trap has closed. More than 600,000 residents of Britain’s second city, Greater Manchester, are, reports a study, “experiencing the effects of extreme poverty” and 1.6 million are slipping into penury.

Little of this social catastrophe is acknowledged in the bourgeois controlled media, notably the Oxbridge dominated BBC. During the referendum campaign, almost no insightful analysis was allowed to intrude upon the clichéd hysteria about “leaving Europe”, as if Britain was about to be towed in hostile currents somewhere north of Iceland….”

”This was not the narrative the establishment were expecting. This was never meant to happen. The remorseless logic of Project Fear seemed tried and tested and sure of success.

At times the barrage seemed too great, as institutions both national and international held nothing back. The Prime Minister and Chancellor; the Labour Party; the Treasury and Foreign Office; the Bank of England; JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs; the Bankers; the Beckhams, the Bransons, the Eddie Izzards, the Benedict Cumberbatchs; the Archbishop of Canterbury; the Pope; the IMF; Jean Claude Junker; President Obama; all lined up to scare the people into voting remain.

But there was a fundamental flaw. A chink in the logic of project fear – namely that scaring deprived communities with economic uncertainty simply would not work when they had lived with economic uncertainty for over 30 years.

In communities where tradesman had not given themselves a pay rise for fifteen years; where the minimum wage was the maximum wage for some; where zero hour contracts offer no security to others – explain to them that the EU protects their workers rights.”

Freeing the UK from EU regulations would allow the UK access to free-trade treaties with 2.2 billion potential customers that they don’t have today. Big corporations may lose out in the short term, but it should be beneficial to small and medium sized British business.

Paolo Barnard, the most censored Italian economic journalist, reveals the truth about BREXIT and the European Union. (video)


 

The European Union, the corrupt and vicious neo-liberal Austerity Weapon of the financial / political elite– has been defeated in the UK — the first step towards its inevitable dissolution.
And yet the metropolitan so-called ”left” is furious. How dare the ”have-nots” put the house prices, foreign holidays and cheap au-pairs of the ”haves” at risk ?
Overwhelmingly it was the poor and powerless who made this historic step, by rebelling in the only way they saw possible – NOT voting the way their privileged masters and the political class demanded. To quote Jeremy Corbyn today : ”Millions of voters have rejected a political establishment that has left them behind. Communities that have been hardest hit by government cuts and economic failure have voted against the status quo.”
This result represents a war cry from the masses — a plague on all elites, left or right.
Well, it’s a start…..
What is needed now is a focused escalation to make the ruling class tremble. Not to allow racists and fascists to exploit this result, but to take, and keep, the political initiative.

In any case, whatever your views on the referendum, the resignation of Posh-boy Pig-fucker is surely reason enough to celebrate !


By the way  : How daft is this Petition calling for a 2nd EU referendum ?

And enough, please, with these petulant, self-serving, simple-minded attacks on disobedient pro-Leave voters for being primitive, xenophobic bigots (and stupid to boot), all to avoid coming to terms with your own responsibility.

….. DEAL WITH IT !!!…

(And start by asking yourself : Why was it overwhelmingly The Poor who voted Leave ?)
