Hagel Demands Fake Elections in Thailand NOW! (not return of elected government)

by Scott Creighton

The fascist neoliberal state of the “Shining City on the Hill” loves fake elections. Loves ‘em. Real elections suck. They learned that lesson in Chile and Palestine… and Egypt and Thailand and Russia…

Fake elections provide the outward appearance of “democracy” if you don’t look too close, while simultaneously providing that all too important “stability” our “national interests” demand.

Take for example the recent ‘election” in the Ukraine which was brought about after a violent coup of U.S. state department backed neo-Nazis.

Take for example the recent “election” in Egypt, brought about by an even more brutal and violent military junta, backed by the state departments as well.

Does anyone here remember the one candidate “election” held in Yemen after popular uprising force our puppet dictator out of office? U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton congratulated the people of Yemen “on today’s successful presidential election

Heck, we threw a couple fake elections over on this side of the pond, right here in our own “homeland” not that long ago. 2000? 2004? Help America Vote Act? Diebold? Supreme Court? Fake protesters in Florida? Ring any bells?

And just look at all that “freedom” those fake elections brought us.

Well today, our glorious leaders are calling for snap “elections” in Thailand in order to bring about a “return to democracy”

Now, notice, they aren’t telling the illegal junta to step down and return the country to the hands of the previous ELECTED government. Oh no. That won’t do.

What kind of ass-backwards regime change would that be?

USA declares war on democracy

by Kevin Ryan, Press TV

Since the days of President Woodrow Wilson – that is, for roughly 100 years – the USA has been on a self-styled crusade to “make the world safe for democracy.”

Colossal wars, hot and cold, were fought against German kaisers and fuhrers, Russian communists, and Third World nationalists. The American people were told they were “defending democracy.”

Americans slaughtered 3.5 million Vietnamese, and nearly another million Cambodians, to “defend democracy” in Southeast Asia.

They murdered millions of Iraqis through wars and sanctions to “defend democracy” in the Middle East.

According to André Vltchek and Noam Chomsky’s book On Western Terrorism, the US government has murdered between 55 and 60 million people since World War II in wars and interventions all over the world. If we believe the imperial propagandists, this American Holocaust has been one big defense of democracy.

But now, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of World War I, the US has embarked on a new crusade – to make the world UNSAFE for democracy.

In Ukraine, Venezuela, and Thailand, the US is spending billions of dollars to unconstitutionally eject democratically-elected governments. In Palestine, the US has been trying to overthrow the democratically-elected Hamas government ever since it came to power. In Egypt, the US – under Zionist pressure – recently overthrew the only genuinely democratic government in 5,000 years of recorded history. In Syria, the US insists that the people must not be given the opportunity to re-elect Assad, no matter how many international observers and safeguards ensure honest elections. And in Turkey, the US is undermining the democratically-elected Prime Minister Erdogan in favor of CIA puppet Fethullah Gulen.

Taking the long view, the US is working patiently to destroy democracy in Iran, Russia, and Latin America.

Why does the US government hate democracy?

Because the international bankers who own the US government and run the US empire cannot always buy enough votes to impose their will on every country. So democracy is fine – as long as voters elect the New World Order candidate. But if they vote for a candidate who doesn’t suit the oligarchs, get ready for a coup!

The banksters will overthrow any government that stands up to them – even in the USA. The “termination with extreme prejudice” of the presidency of John F. Kennedy sent a message to all future US presidents.

Today’s Ridiculous Pro-Regime Change Propaganda – What’s Old is New Again

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: See the slick “I am a Ukrainian” video at the end of this article. It’s slightly better propaganda but just another KONY 2012 campaign. Again, nothing new.

————

As the real economy continues to shrink with jobs becoming even more scarce, it would appear there is one sector of the economy that is literally “booming” and that would be the “Ridiculous Pro-Regime Change Propaganda” industry.

With varying degrees of intensity, the regime change machine is up and running in six “unfriendly” nations which are all targets of our “freedom and democracy” agenda: Russia, North Korea, Syria, Thailand, the Ukraine and Venezuela. In some cases it’s simply a matter of setting the ground work for future calls for another “humanitarian intervention”. In others, bombs are exploding and bullets are flying with the body-count climbing fast and furious.

When sycophants get wind of a sea change, of a shift in the global tide of economic opportunism, they are rarely talented enough to generate the kinds of fresh ideas needed to set them apart from the gaggle of preening wannabees who surround them.

Everyone at this point understands that they can get ahead by jumping on the globalization bandwagon with some eye-catching propaganda that might make headlines for a minute or two and help our Peace Prize “winning” president justify another humanitarian bombing. The trouble is, these C+ guys by their own nature, aren’t the best and the brightest. They succeeded (if you wish to call it that) by sucking up to whomever they could, positioning themselves as the perennial Yesmen to whatever power structure they encountered.

Today, the lack of real creativity in this overstuffed field is evidenced by some rather stupid propaganda and stunt retreads being peddled out there as attempts to force regime change on several nations with the audacity to refuse to take part in our neoliberal for-profit central banking pyramid scheme known as “globalization”

Here’s a brief rundown:

CNN Covering Story of CIA Agents “all over” Benghazigate?

by Scott Creighton

The story is that there were dozens of CIA assets and agents all over the compound in Benghazi the night they staged the attack with their “Libyan” assets and the CIA has been conducting all kinds of lie detector tests on those agents to find out what they know or what they are hiding. Even CNN has to admit one thing they are looking at is the possibility of Stevens and the CIA funneling weapons from their Libyan destabilization team to their Syrian destabilization team.

But the one thing they don’t mention is the fact that all those assets and agents could have also been helping facilitate the “death of Stevens” show which ended up justifying the U.S. bringing troops and drones into the whole of Africa in support of an agenda set out by 45 major international corporations just a few months before.

So even CNN will tell a little piece of the story, just so long as the whole truth remains hidden.

New Benghazi Emails – “Penultimate” Concern was Hiding Warnings from Congress and the People

by Scott Creighton

Victoria Nuland clearly states she didn’t want to “arm” congress and the people WITH THE TRUTH… so they LIED. And somehow that is supposed to exonerate the State Department and the Obama administration?

In either an effort to curb the growing scandal or an attempt to keep it going, the White House released 100 more documents related to the Benghazi scandal late Wednesday ( part one (PDF) and part two (PDF))

Apologists rushed to press with the talking point that these emails and communications from back around the time of the Benghazi attack prove that the Obama administration was not lying in order to score political points right before the election.

On their front page, the Huffington Post actually went with the tag-line link “Benghazi Conspiracy Theories Fall Apart “. Their suggestion is that the new documents prove that the White House didn’t lie to keep them from losing the election but rather they lied “for other reasons” and thus, the “conspiracy theorists” are all wrong.

What they really show is the fact that they did lie in order to cover-up the very things I and others have been writing about for a week. They lied to protect themselves and their psyop. They lied about 4 dead Americans. They lied about what they knew and when they knew it. Period. And somehow this is supposed to clear Obama and silence the “conspiracy theorists”?

Ron Paul on Benghazi – Almost Sorta Gets it Right… til he gets it wrong

by Scott Creighton

According to Ron Paul, it’s all about the “unintended consequences” of partnering with “Radical Islam”

Well, he was doing OK up until that…

“It appears that the Administration scrubbed initial intelligence reports of references to extremist Islamist involvement in the attacks, preferring to craft a lie that the demonstrations were a spontaneous response to an anti-Islamic video that developed into a full-out attack on the US outpost.” Ron Paul

Yes, they did craft a lie about the anti-Islamic video causing a spontaneous uprising in Benghazi. But Ron forgets to remind his audience that the video was crafted by the FBI and one of their informants who was on federal probation a year prior to the Benghazi attacks and somehow it was retooled in order to serve as the pretext for this new uprising. So they “crafted the lie” in advance. That will be an important point in a few minutes. Keep it in mind.

SOHR and MSM Use Same “Bomb” Prop for Another Regime Change Video

by Scott Creighton

The Associated Press is reporting another set of phantom airstrikes by the ruthless Syrian government on the civilian population, this time around the Damascus suburbs and the Syrian town of Azaz near the Turkish border.

The reports are unconformable of course and they come from two highly dubious sources: the SOHR and the Turkish government.

As ridiculous as it is to take at their word two institutions that are currently working to force regime change in Syria, what makes this recent example even funnier is they focus their “proof’ on a piece of an old Soviet cluster bomb they have already used in the past. They didn’t even clean it off or paint it or anything. They seem to have dug it out of the back of some PR guys SUV and stuck it down in the ground in another town.
