Neoliberal News of the Day: Feb. 9, 2016

“ISIS” is now in Libya: they shipped their Special Ops Helix trucks over there and staged a nifty parade down the street complete with “ISIS” guys wearing masks and “ISIS” brand flags

Privatization being used as a weapon to destabilize Russia through work of NGOs – “Privatization will not help re-industrialize Russia’s economy, but will aggravate its turn into a rentier economy from which profits are extracted for the benefit of foreign owners.”

Ukraine Today reports there are 7,000 Russian regular army troops stationed in Donbass right now: don’t expect to see any photos of them though… they have that super secret Russia stealth armor – “yeah. they are there. trust me. really. Do you believe me? Please believe me.”

Kurds in Iraq are protesting the illegal Barzani government for imposing harsh austerity measures on them and not paying government workers’ salaries – ““This government has lost its legitimacy. They must make way for other people,” another protester said.”

The corrupt Barzani clan have seized power in Iraqi Kurdistan and are looking to expand their kingdom into Syria and Turkey. They are neoliberals and run the country however their masters in the US, Britain and Israel tell them to. They wish to rule Kurdistan like the Saud family runs Arabia.

France has ordered Facebook to stop stealing user’s personal information and transferring it to the US while India shuts down their “Free Basics” internet service because it’s harvesting info on their citizens and selling it – “The CNIL also stated that Facebook’s collection of data “concerning the sexual orientation, religious views and political opinions” of its users and the subsequent transfer to the US was in violation of the law. It added that the social network’s password policy did not ensure maximum security to users.”

Reason blog says we should all support the TPP and the TTIP because free trade is great and you can’t make a computer.

Counterpunch says congress must kill the TPP because basically, it’s fascism and they’re right

Russian agency says US is obliged to make public their satellite imagery from downing of Flight MH17 – “”The US side is unconditionally obliged to make public the satellite imagery, which, according to US Secretary of State John Kerry, has been at its disposal since the moment of the plane’s crash and can shed light on the circumstances of the disaster. For its part, the Ukrainian side is obliged to present either primary radar data or credible proof they do not exist in reality,” he said in response to a letter from the relatives of the crash victims addressed to the Russian president.”

Russian Ambassador to Syria says it would be easier to stop all the terrorists in the country if Obama and other NATO leaders would stop funding them – “He considered that those governments’ continuous support to the terrorist organizations in Syria will lead to fueling the war in Syria and prolonging the process of fighting terrorism.”

Saudi Arabia says Obama is ready to allow Saudi troops to go into Syria to fight Assad their own Takfari terrorist mercs – ““The United States government was very supportive and very positive about the kingdom’s readiness to provide special forces to the operation in Syria, should the international coalition make a decision to do so,” he told reporters.”

Saudi ground troops invading Syria is probably not a good idea (in spite of what Bernie Sanders says)

Saudi Arabia is pushing US lawmakers for more support of their bombing campaign in Yemen that mainly targets civilian infrastructure – “A top Saudi Arabian military official on Monday tried to win Washington support for the Saudi-led military campaign to restore Yemen’s government, rejecting increasingly vocal criticism of the war’s humanitarian toll and broad U.S. support for Saudi actions.”

A UN regime change commission says all the prisoners who die in Syrian prisons were killed by Assad – “There are reasonable grounds to believe that the conduct described amounts to extermination as a crime against humanity.”
The Pentagon finally confirms what we already knew: North Korea launched a satellite into orbit, they weren’t testing long range missile systems like the idiot on that Republican debate was saying – “The Pentagon confirmed Monday that North Korea has successfully launched a satellite or similar device into orbit, as the U.S. and its allies weigh how to respond to the provocative act.”

Canada’s new leader is getting them out of the Bomb ISIS business – “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was elected to office in November, said his government will end its bombing missions in the war-torn region by 22 February with six fighter jets being withdrawn.”

Obama wants 1.8 billion to fight Zika fake epidemic – “People don’t die of Zika. A lot of people who get it don’t even know that they have it.”

The Zika epidemic is a fraud designed to pump unregulated money into various slush-funds just like Ebola and H1N1 before it – “Out of nowhere, a month ago, we were told there was an outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil: over 4,000 cases of babies born with small heads and brain impairment. The Brazilian researchers then went in and took a closer look at that figure. They walked it back and said there were, at best, only 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly… Then, another stunner. Of the 404 cases, only 17 “had a relationship with the Zika virus.” Therefore, obviously, there was no Zika-causing-microcephaly story, either.”

Nazi France is looking to criminalize “conspiracy theories” or other “dangerous thoughts” – “Ironically, in order to achieve this fascist leap forward, Hollande has equated “conspiracy theories” to Nazism, and is calling for government regulations to prevent any sharing or publishing of any views deemed as ‘dangerous thought’ by the state. Specifically, Hollande is citing “Anti-Semitism” and also anything which could inspire ‘acts terrorism’ – as the chief vehicles for what the state will be designating as ‘dangerous thoughts’. With the thumb of Hebdo still pressing down, this may just sound like politics writ large by the French leader, but in reality it’s full-blown fascism.”

  1. Do you know if France is still trying to criminalize what they deem as “conspiracy theories? That 21st Century Wire article is from March 19, 2015 and I haven’t heard anything about it since.
