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)

Dubai : A nasty little theocracy in a shopping mall

dubai1_3474937b

Sterile and morally destitute Dubai shows what happens when you chase money at the cost of all else.

A nasty little theocracy in a shopping mall.

Towers built by slaves and vile consumerism.

Dubai is a smorgasbord of the despicable – Modern slavery. A legal system that jails rape victims. Ghastly bad taste. An utter contempt for the environment : a hideous fusion of hyper-capitalism and repressive theocracy.

It is also a warning to London : When all you care about is money, eventually you get Dubai…

Dubai and the UAE (like the other Gulf States and Saudi Arabia) feels no requirement to have humanitarian concerns for the unfolding refugee tragedy caused by imperialism in their region. They have bought the ”friendship” of the West with oil money in order to be left to run their countries entirely in the interests of their absolute rulers, the al-Saud and Maktoum families…..

Why Hillary Clinton Is More Dangerous Than Trump

John Pilger : Why Hillary Clinton Is More Dangerous Than Donald Trump

”In the circus known as the American presidential campaign, Donald Trump is being presented as a lunatic, a fascist. He is certainly odious; but he is also a media hate figure. That alone should arouse our scepticism.”

WikiLeaks Reveals DNC Elevated Trump to Help Clinton

The Democratic Party (DNC) elevated Trump and encouraged the media to legitimize him, so that Hillary Clinton could run a campaign of impunity and fear.

According to WikiLeaks : ”The DNC memo named Trump, Senator Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson as wanted candidates. “We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to take them seriously,” the memo noted.

Clinton was widely presumed to be the Democratic presidential nominee long before the primaries began.  The media gave Hillary what she wanted; impunity for the corruption, lies, and deceitfulness rampant in her political record, and an opponent who divided his own political party while driving fear and anxiety into her own to the point where enough Democrats and voters would gladly vote for her just to avoid Trump becoming president.”

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….
