The Joseph Kony “Threat” was Always Fake News

(Check out what I wrote about the Kony 2012 psyop way back in 2012 when it mattered. I even did a little graphic to make my point. Still quite proud of that one)

by Glen Ford, from BAR

The United States government is the biggest purveyor of fake news on the planet. In fact, most of U.S. foreign policy is based on lies and outrageous distortions that are methodically disseminated by corporate media in the form of fake news. Fake news is a weapon that has killed millions in Libya, Iraq and Syria, where the United States and its allies have armed and trained jihadist terrorists to wage a proxy war against secular governments, while claiming to be fighting these same jihadists. Every word that President Obama ever said about Libya and Syria has been a lie — a fake story.

The threat that Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army supposedly posed in central Africa was also fake news, a lie circulated in order to justify sending 100 U.S. Special Forces troops to the region, in 2011. Obama needed a villain, so he chose Joseph Kony, a guerilla fighter from the Acholi people of northern Uganda, as his nemesis. The Acholi had been defeated in a civil war by another guerilla fighter, Yoweri Museveni, who went on to become Ronald Reagan’s favorite African and a main puppet and hit man for the U.S. in Africa. He would play a key role in the genocides in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. But first, Museveni laid waste to the Acholi people’s lands in Uganda, massacred them by the thousands, and locked them up in concentration camps…

Pentagon exercises free rein in global military escalation

(Yeah, we have “national interests” in Yemen. Which translates to “we gotta save Hunt Oil and those damn profits!”. Read Dancing with Snakes which I wrote in 2010 if you want to know what our “national interests” are in Yemen)

from the WSWS

Two months into the administration of Donald Trump, the US military is involved in a relentless military escalation from the Baltic Sea in Eastern Europe to Central Asia, the Middle East and the Horn of Africa. The “war on terror” launched by the Bush administration more than fifteen years ago, having already turned much of the region into a slaughterhouse, is taking an even deadlier turn.

In extraordinary testimony to a US Congressional panel, the top military commander of US forces in the Middle East and Central Asia essentially laid out a proposal for the buildup to war against Iran, even as the Pentagon is steadily escalating a murderous bombing campaign that has killed hundreds if not thousands of civilians in Iraq and Syria.

Gen. Joseph Votel, the chief of the US Central Command, told the House Armed Services Committee Wednesday that Iran “poses the greatest long-term threat to security in this part of the world” and demanded that Washington act to “disrupt [Iran] through military means or other means.” He added, “We need to look at opportunities where we can expose and hold them accountable for the things that they are doing,” while calling into question the 2015 nuclear agreement signed by Iran, the US and the other major powers.

Votel went on to present the case for an expanded US military intervention in Yemen, declaring that “there are vital US interests at stake” in this, the most impoverished Arab country, where Saudi Arabia and its allies have waged a near-genocidal war against the population using American weapons along with indispensable US intelligence and logistical support. The remark came as the Pentagon is preparing to back an offensive by the Emirati military aimed at capturing a Red Sea port that constitutes Yemen’s last link between the outside world and its starving population…

No, Gen. Flynn did Not Ask for an Immunity Deal (full statement from Robert Kelner)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Now if you want too see what a real immunity deal looks like, just go back to the FBI’s “investigation” of Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private server to keep her crimes from becoming public record. That’s what an immunity deal looks like. And that one is real.

The Mockingbird press are beside themselves this morning saying Trump’s former National Security Adviser, Gen. M. Flynn, has “requested immunity from prosecution” in exchange for his testimony before the new Senate Intelligence Witch Hunt Committee. That is absolutely fake news. Its a deliberate, bold-faced lie.

Below you will find the actual statement released by Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner.

The text of the unsigned statement is as follows:

Frankenstein Vs Mocking-Mothra: How Morning Joe Justified their War Against Trump and their Hatred of Democracy

by Scott Creighton

The other day Mika Brzeninski let it slip that she believes her job is to control what you think. That is partially true. The other aspect of her job, the one she is paid considerably well for, is to lie, spin and obfuscate about various political figures on behalf of her owners and the “national interests” they represent.

Today the MSM news outlets do anything but reporting news. They are weapons of mass destruction targeting whatever they are told to target like pit-bulls raised by animals to fight whatever is put in front of them on their behalf.

Joe Scarborough said as much this morning when talking about, of all things, President Donald Trump.

Though Trump has been a target of the vitriol of the complicit media for the past 6 months or so, let us not forget… they made him.

During the Republican primary season the MSM provided him with record amounts of coverage which was unlike anything ever seen before in presidential campaigns. One organization tallied the amount of free press they gave him and estimated the equivalent airtime if he had to pay for it would have cost his campaign something like 2 billion dollars. They would literally show empty podiums waiting for Trump to speak at some rally someplace for hours while the commentators chatting, often favorably, about candidate Trump. This went on and on throughout the Republican primary and only ended after Hillary Clinton stole the nomination from Sanders. And then, it was a completely different story.

Once the general election took off, Trump suddenly became a raving:

  1. liar
  2. racist
  3. mysoginist
  4. tax cheat
  5. xenophobe
  6. and Russian agent (traitor)

The turn was instantaneous and quite obviously orchestrated from someplace high above feeding the same talking points, day after day, to the press in order to INFLUENCE OUR ELECTION.

What is it that we accused the Russians of doing? I can’t remember…

The turn was so clearly choreographed it became obvious very quickly when you considered all the time they spend promoting him, that they did that so that Hillary could beat him. They built him up so they could tear him down.

Now he’s become Frankenstein’s monster and the masters of the universe who backed Clinton in her bid to occupy the Oval Office are having to unleash Mocking-Mothra to bring him down.

Pardon the reference to the old stylized films of the 60s if you will. Maybe it will make sense in the end. Let’s see.

US group accuses Kurds of keeping Yazidi, Christian refugees from their Iraqi homeland (it’s called ethnic cleansing )

(Ah the glorious Kurds. Our new “freedom fighters” made in the same mold as “al Qaeda” in Afghanistan, the “moderates” in Syria and the “Contras” in Latin America. Fighting for nothing more than truth, justice and the American way of “democracy” over in the Middle East. I mean… Kurdi Kimmie said so right? So it has to be true. Unfortunately for Kimmie and her new best friends the Kurds, Amnesty International has been detailing their ethnic cleansing operations in Iraq and Syria for several years (here and here) and it’s becoming more and more obvious that the glorious Kurds are nothing more than invading Huns raping and conquering with the help of Big Brother on their way to Greater Kurdistan. Hell, even the U.S. ambassador to Turkey, John Bass, said the Kurds were ethnically cleansing the areas they take over after “ISIS” is allowed to leave. And now Fox “News” admits as much as well?)

from Fox “News”

U.S. representatives of Iraq’s long-persecuted Assyrian Christian minority are blasting claims by the country’s Kurdish Regional Government that its refusal to let them return home aims only to protect them. But the KRG, which denies the accusation, cites unexploded roadside bombs left by now-expelled Islamic State forces as a key reason for — temporarily — barring the Assyrian Christians from their homeland.

The clash between the KRG and the American representatives of the Assyrians erupted earlier this week, signaling strains in what had been a solid anti-ISIS alliance of Kurds and Assyrian Christians. The other large Christian group in Iraq, known as Chaldeans, enjoys harmonious relations with the KRG.

According to a report from The Investigative Project on Terrorism, the KRG has blocked both the Assyrians and the Yazidis from returning to their villages across a broad expanse of northern Iraq known as the Nineveh Plain.

“It’s really been a case of adding insult to injury to insult again,” Jeff Gardiner, director of operations for advocacy and relief foundation Restore Nineveh Now, said to Fox News. “The Kurdish authorities did not protect the people of the Nineveh Plain. In a way, this was enabled by the Kurdish government. They really set them [Yazidis and Assyrians] up for this catastrophic outcome.”…

A Few Reminders about FDR and Henry Wallace

Sometimes looking back is the only way forward. Or at least a better way to understand where we are right now.

Why did Hillary Clinton lose this past election?

Franklin D. Roosevelt Letter to the Democratic Convention

July 18, 1940

Members of the Convention:

In the century in which we live, the Democratic Party has received the support of the electorate only when the party, with absolute clarity, has been the champion of progressive and liberal policies and principles of government.

The party has failed consistently when through political trading and chicanery it has fallen into the control of those interests, personal and financial, which think in terms of dollars instead of in terms of human values…

Until the Democratic Party through this convention makes overwhelmingly clear its stand in favor of social progress and liberalism, and shakes off all the shackles of control fastened upon it by the forces of conservatism, reaction, and appeasement, it will not continue its march of victory

Let us not forget the principles that the old Democratic Party stood for. The ideals that got FDR elected to the office of the President of the United States four times in a row.
