Susan Rice Admits Obama Admin Providing “lethal” Aid to “Vetted” Terrorists in Syria

by Scott Creighton

“The United States has been the single largest contributor of humanitarian assistance, providing over 1.7 billion dollars. That’s why the United States has ramped up its support for the moderate vetted opposition, providing lethal and nonlethal support where we can to support both the civilian opposition and the military opposition.” Susan Rice CNN

Less than a week after an election in Syria showed the vast majority of Syrians wanted Bashar Assad to remain their president, Obama’s US National Security Advisor Susan Rice took time out to go on CNN and let the world know that yes, we have been providing military lethal aid to the destabilization forces we unleashed in Syria.

US officials have refused to say whether Rice was announcing a new US policy. They have also declined to comment on the details of the support to the militants. This comes as earlier reports said the US is ready to begin training missions for the insurgents. Press TV

For anyone paying attention, this latest admission is hardly news. But for them to come right out and admit they are arming and training these terrorists is.

Globalist Jesus Worshiped at Golden Globes While the “Other’ CIA Film Received It’s Award

by Scott Creighton

Globalist Jesus slipped out on stage at the Golden Globes yesterday and the idol worship and false praise rang out loud and clear from all those Hollywood elites who were afraid to be seen not rejoicing in his splendor. His background didn’t matter, his brutal corporate history didn’t matter, his lies and betrayal of his wife and the honor of his office didn’t matter. All that matters is the fact that he is as rich as the ancient dictators of old and the fact that his fascist fingers grip power with the help of Hollywood’s new team of acclaimed writers: the Central Intelligence Agency.

It was a despicable display of Orwellian servitude by a group of soulless, talentless hacks risen to the ranks of what is laughably called “the A-List” simply because they will bow to their new morally bankrupt neo-liberal god-king.

Obama Meets his Prestitute Megaphonies to Prep “Fiscal Cliff” Compromise Propaganda

by Scott Creighton

Barack Obama has every intention of betraying his base… once again, this time on the subject of crippling “austerity” measures (read as “IMF structural reform package”) that will be “needed” to avoid the ever looming mythical fiscal cliff. So he called a special meeting with some of the left-wing propaganda peddlers to have a little off-the-record meeting at the White House. The idea is to get the talking points directly to the megaphonies so there’s no communication divide while at the same time expressing to them their personal importance to the administration, capitalizing on their feelings of entitlement in order to ensure they will strive their hardest to convince their audiences that something that is in their worst interest is actually in their best interests. To lie to their fans for the president and his neoliberal agenda in other words.

Press TV Reporter Murdered by Hillary’s Heroes in Damascus

by Scott Creighton

A Press TV reporter was shot and killed by a “rebel” sniper in Syria today. 33 year old Maya Naser and Al-Alam Damascus Bureau Chief Hosein Mortada were covering yesterday’s twin bombing attacks when they came under fire from the NATO backed “professional jihadists”. Mortada was wounded in the leg.

Maya was one of Press TV’s English language news correspondents. Looks like someone wished to reduce Press TV’s accessibility to their growing American audience.

Press TV’s newsroom director had this public statement about the murder;

Supreme Follies

by Scott Creighton

Just a quick note: In a few hours the Supreme Court is going to release it’s decision on the Obamacare (aka the ironically named “Affordable” Care Act) lawsuits brought by 26 different states. I won’t be here when the verdict is released so I will go out on a limb and make a little prediction… the court will support the mandate as “constitutional” but will strike several aspects of the bill as unconstitutional, namely the part that mandates corporations offer coverage to people with pre-existing conditions and the part that keeps them from charging more from elderly MANDATED “customers” (are we really “customers” if we are forced to purchase their deeply flawed insurance scams?). They will do this because to them it is constitutional to force human citizens to buy a flawed product from a corporation but it is unconstitutional to force corporate persons to treat human citizens in a just manner. Plus, there is just WAAAAAY too much money at stake (for those of you who don’t know… MOST of the industrialized Western nations have a single payer type healthcare system and the big insurance companies have EVERY INTENTION of exporting our system and thus striking this down not only hurts their profits here but also in the future all across the world. Just think about those payment premium profit margins for a second. think about it… think about it…. good. now move on)

The fake left is inundated with dire warnings of life without Obamacare (first suggested by the Heritage Foundation don’t ya know) and the right is being bombarded with renewed threats of the evil soooooocialism (and when I say soooooocialism, Fox News style,  I mean Nazi Germany, Satan himself, and the dreaded social justice… cus that all means the same thing to Fox News viewers and “freedom” loving libertarians who pledge their support daily to the “freedom” of corporations to rip off their customers, pay no taxes for the services they enjoy, and poison our food supply) of single payer healthcare if the court rules in favor of the constitution. The stage has been set. The actors are on their marks. Everyone is ready. Are you?

In the Land of Blood and Honey: Hollywood Has Become Pure Propaganda

by Scott Creighton

A couple weeks ago I wrote about the Christopher Noland Batman series where he remakes every comic book villain into some kind of domestic homegrown terrorist with his last offering looking to make the 99% the last of his “bad guys” for the Batman to beat down.

In the Land of Blood and Honey is a film by A. Jolie, another Hollywood silver-spooner born into her leading role via her famous daddy. This film is set in Bosnia and it completely rewrites the history of that conflict started by the Clinton administration much like they are doing now in Libya and Syria by bringing in extremists (in that case as in the recent ones, it was the radical arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, then run by a guy named Osama bin Laden) to destabilize the nation targeted for regime change. The terrorists set off on a bloody campaign killing many officials and police officers as well as Serbian citizens which the Clinton administration then used to justify regime change as they are doing now in various countries.

Occupy the Education System: Students, Teachers and Parents Find New Spirit and Challenge the Attack on Public Schools

by Sarah Jaffe, Alternet

“I work hard, but my grades don’t matter. But I have a voice and I will be heard!”

Jordan is 13, and she’s speaking to a crowd of mostly adults, sitting on the granite steps of the New York City Department of Education at Tweed Hall. Or rather, she is speaking through them, as her words echo through the people’s mic used at Occupy Wall Street just few blocks south from where she’s speaking.

Tonight the steps of the DOE have been occupied and are packed with teachers, students, parents, and supporters holding a general assembly on the state of public education in New York.

The Strauss-Kahn Set-Up and the Globalist Assault on Greek Sovereignty

by Scott Creighton

Now that Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been successfully removed from the equation, the globalist financial institutions are free to cash in on the Great Recession they created.  They’re attempting to hammer the people of Greece into submission with new “unprecedented” levels of privatization of public assets and even calls for “outside institutions” to take over some aspects of governing their country… like tax collection to start with. The buzz-word here is “sovereignty” and Greece is only the beginning.

“In order for the country to get future bailout money, the country will have to give up some sovereignty.

Specifically, according to a bombshell FT report, outside authorities will take over various functions related to tax collection (a big time problem in Athens) and privatizations.”  Business Insider

CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., Friday, May 20, 2011: Celebrate Illegal Murder of OBL

by Scott Creighton

In two previous postings I put up photos of thousands of people protesting the austerity measures being forced on them in Spain and Greece by their own corrupt politicians and their CIA linked financial “advisers”

So, as a bit of contrast, while the rest of the country here at home suffers the same fate as the Spaniards and the Greeks, the insulated D.C. “intelligence” crowd took a little time to celebrate their fictitious murder of Osama bin Laden. President Obama graced the CIA working stiffs with an audience as a “reward” for their years of hard work tracking down a man who has quite probably been dead for almost ten years now.

Without fawning sycophantic idiots like these, fascists like the Bushes and the Clintons would be powerless.

Tricks, Compromises, and Betrayals; The Obama™ Campaign Begins

by Scott Creighton

The mechanics of the PR tricks used by the marketing agencies contracted to run this country are becoming even more sophomoric and painfully obvious. Pathetic really. Hard to imagine people get paid to write this shit.

A “news” story is all across the spectrum about a mic that was “left on” which recorded Obama, supposedly a candid Obama, at a fund-raiser… really “sticking it” to the republicans. This open mic story is based on something Obama said, at a fund-raiser, at the podium, while speaking to the crowd… with a microphone. This is what passes as an “open mic” story these days.

This is obviously a cheap ploy, written by some politico marketing flunky, in an effort to paint the president as some kind of “progressive” crusader getting ready to take the fight to the far right.

Apparently Obama, who has been the most obvious servant of big business we have seen in decades, has just been “tricking” everyone in order to lure the Chamber of Commerce and big business into a false sense of security.

Now he’s about to spring his trap. You see, Obama plays 40 dimension chess while we all play Chutes and Ladders with safety helmets on our heads. That’s how the cliché went while Obama was picking his neo-liberal corporatist cabinet, right? That’s how the story went while Obama was locking up whistle-blowers and extending our Global Free Market Wars into Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia right?

It’s just so stupid.  But you know what? Lots of people will fall for this… simply because they want to, just like they have fallen for the litany of other staged “compromises” over the past 2 years.

The reality is, the sickness bleeding into our society, now being openly attributed to ONLY the far right, the Ryan Right, has been polluting the bloodlines of the fake progressive left since the Clinton administration and it isn’t doing anything but getting progressively worse under Obama.

Look Over There! Look Over There! Nothing to See Here… Look OVER THERE!!!

by Scott Creighton

While most of the MSM focuses entirely on Japan or the drifting fallout, winds of CHANGE are blowing through the Obama administration who are definitely taking advantage of the distraction. The president has chosen this particular moment in time to take up the question of gun control in the wake of the shooting in Arizona which took place more than 2 months ago. Hillary Clinton has once again been pushing for the establishment of a no-fly zone and military intervention in Libya in a G-8 Summit meeting in Paris but several other leaders don’t seem to want to help her and her CIA linked MI-6 “diplomats” overthrow the Gadhafi regime.  You will never see a better equipped and more violent group of “pro-democracy demonstrators” in the entire Middle Eastern uprising.  The Obama administration played down the violence against the protesters in Egypt and Tunisia and even called for the corrupt regimes there to remain while “modifications” to their rule were slowly worked out.  Those protesters had no heavy truck-mounted weapons, no MI-6 “advisers”, and no offer from Israeli security companies to fund “separation forces”.

Isn’t it funny how the “progressive” Obama regime is in the same camp on this one that John McCain and “Fightin” Joe LIEberman are in calling for an all out invasion of Libya to remove Gadhafi? Of course, Obama’s been in the same camp as those two neocon fraudsters for years.

Yet while the Obama administration works hard to unseat Gadhafi because his forces are fighting back against the heavily armed insurgents in Libya, the peaceful protesters in Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain are being slaughtered without so much as a peep coming from our Peace Prize “winning” president.

In Yemen the pro-western dictator of 30 years, President Saleh, is using poison gas and live rounds on his unarmed pro-democracy demonstrators to keep his hold on power. Hunt oil has a big pipeline deal in Yemen and lots of natural gas to steal from those poor people. The poisoned gas he is using is reported to have come from the U.S. and Britain.  But not a word from Obama the peace-maker.

Home Sweet Wall Street

by Robert Sheer, Truthdig

A most dastardly deed occurred last Friday when the Obama administration issued a 29-page policy statement totally abandoning the federal government’s time-honored role in helping Americans achieve the goal of homeownership. Instead of punishing the banks that sabotaged the American ideal of a nation of stakeholders by “securitizing” our homesteads into poker chips to be gambled away in the Wall Street casino, Barack Obama now proposes to turn over the entire mortgage industry to those same banks.

The proposal, originated by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, involves nothing less than a total “winding down” of the 80-year-old federal housing program, setting instead a new goal of a two-tiered America in which the masses are content to be mere renters of the American Dream. Such a deal for a country where, as the report concedes, “Half of all renters spend more than a third of their income on housing, and a quarter spend more than half.”

The Power of Change – Obama Rewards MSNBC’s Boss for Election Bias

by Scott Creighton

President Obama has sold out again. Seems to be a pattern for the man.

It is being announced today that Obama is replacing Paul Volker with GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt as the head of a Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

MSNBC served in the capacity of the “All Obama All the Time” channel in the run-up to the 2008 elections. They were heavily criticized for being blatantly one-sided when it came to coverage of the candidates, giving preference to Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama during the primaries, and then almost exclusively producing positive coverage of candidate Obama during the general election.

Obama Pulls a Clinton

by Robert Sheer, Truthdig

Here we go again. When Bill Clinton suffered an electoral reversal after his first two years in office, he abruptly embraced the corporate money guys who had financed his congressional opposition in an effort to purchase a second term. On Tuesday in his Wall Street Journal Op-Ed piece, Barack Obama veered sharply down that same course, trumpeting his executive order “ … to remove outdated regulations that stifle job creation and make our economy less competitive. …”

He employed the same “creating a 21st-century regulatory system” rationalization used by Clinton when he signed off on the sweeping deregulation legislation that unleashed the Wall Street greed that ended up being the biggest job-killer since the Great Depression. “Over the (past) seven years, we have tried to modernize the economy,” Clinton enthused as he signed the Financial Services Modernization Act that repealed key New Deal legislation, adding, “And today what we are doing is modernizing the financial services industry, tearing down those antiquated laws and granting banks significant new authority.” Modernizing was the propaganda constant, as in the Commodity Futures Modernization Act that Clinton signed, thus shielding financial derivatives from any government regulation.
