The Hillary Clinton emails: A record of imperialist crimes

by Tom Hall, WSWS

Last Monday, the US State Department published the last batch of declassified emails from a private, unsecured server used by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state. This latest release draws to a close a year-long review by US intelligence agencies of 52,000 pages of Clinton emails, ostensibly motivated by concerns over possible leaks of classified material.

To date, more than 30,000 emails dating from Clinton’s four-year tenure as secretary of state have been released to the public. Clinton played a central role in the prosecution of aggressive wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Libya as well as the carrying out of drone assassinations and other illegal actions in a number of additional countries, including Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Yet in its extensive reporting of the email scandal, the American media has virtually ignored the actual content of these emails, which contain a wealth of information about the day-to-day functioning of the Clinton State Department.

Greater Kurdistan: Chris Ernesto and St. Pete for Peace Shillin for Regime Change in Turkey, Supporting New Freedom Fighters, the Kurds

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: On the SPFP Twitter feed which Ernesto runs, there is a promoted Tweet announcing VICELAND… a new TV channel from Soros’ VICE news propaganda outlet. What a shock.

I received an email this morning and have been responding to it pretty much all day. It was that offensive to me.

It was offensive because it came from St. Pete for Peace and included these words:

Turkey & Saudi Arabia: Two causes of the war in Syria
Wednesday, March 2, 7pm, Community Cafe, 2444 Central Ave.
Using ISIS, al-Qaeda & mercenaries, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are two of the countries trying to overthrow the Assad government in Syria. Even Joe Biden admitted as much (this part is incredible).

Apparently Chris Ernesto, a guy who looks like he’s trying to be Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man with a woven purse (don’t ask what that’s all about) has made a 59 minute documentary for Youtube and is holding a special screening of his masterpiece at the Community Cafe tomorrow night. He’s going to impress his fellow “antiwar” activists in St. Pete with his master level editing and research skills to help everyone over there come to understand who’s really at fault for the 5 year regime change operation in Syria… Recep Erdogan.

Notice the “incredible” part of his click-bait tagline: “even Joe Biden admitted as much”

At first when I received the email, I thought the guy was talking about a recent regime change supporting video from Robert Greenwald. He’s been making them since Obama took over and I don’t he’s seen a regime change op since he didn’t support. So I replied to Mr. Stark wannabe angrily telling him to stop supporting obvious regime change propaganda because all they are trying to do is drum up support for removing Erdogan so they can bust off a piece of Turkey to go with Iraqi Kurdistan and Syrian Kurdistan to make Greater Kurdistan.

I wasn’t very pleasant when I wrote it and profanities laced my reply but that happens when a supposedly antiwar peace group sends me shit in support of yet another fucking regime change operation. I tend to get a little pissed off about that, especially since they know my website and should know better than send that shit to me.

Anyway, turns out, Iron Man Ernesto up there wasn’t sending me an invite to a Robert Greenwald “Brave New Propaganda” film… he was sending me an invite to his own work. Which is actually much worse.

Obama Uses “American Exceptionalism” Myth to Plead for Cheney’s Unitary Executive Theory

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Obama’s Coalition of the Willing have begun bombing Syrian forces directly. 3 Syrian troops killed several others wounded Coalition authorities say “we see no evidence of this”

UPDATE: Why Does the FBI Have to Manufacture its Own Plots if Terrorism and ISIS Are Such Grave Threats?

“let’s make sure we never forget what makes us exceptional”

Last night our president, Barack Obama, the president of “CHANGE”, went before the nation to plead his case for endless war, more unconventional warfare by means of terrorism and the stripping of US citizen’s rights by the arbitrary means of simply adding their names to the MASSIVE and growing “no fly” list.

And as the basis of all of this, Obama said we can and should do these things, because we’re just so damn exceptional.

“My fellow Americans, I am confident we will succeed in this mission because we are on the right side of history. We were founded upon a belief in human dignity — that no matter who you are, or where you come from, or what you look like, or what religion you practice, you are equal in the eyes of God and equal in the eyes of the law.”

Does anyone here feel we are on the right side of history after the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq? How about Afghanistan, Libya, Ukraine, Vietnam, Nigeria or Sudan? How about Venezuela, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina or Chile in 1973?

Deconstructing Kyle Kulinski’s and Sam Harris’ “ISIS™” Disinformation

by Scott Creighton

“ISIS™” in Iraq is nothing more than a pre-text creating the narrative for a FID or Foreign Internal Defense campaign

The other day Sam Harris went on some obscure YouTube channel “news” outlet called the Rubin Report and said that it was “delusional” to think President Bush’s illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq gave rise to “ISIS™”

His reasoning, if you want to call it that, was that “fundamentalist Islam” existed long before our (illegal) invasion and therefore something like “ISIS™” was bound to crop up eventually in the Baathist nation.

Along comes someone named Kyle Kulinski on his obscure YouTube “news” channel too say that Sam is missing the point and that he’s absolutely wrong about  “ISIS™” being caused by the (illegal) invasion (curious how both Harris and Kulinski continually forget to mention the illegal aspect of the Iraq invasion and occupation)

It should be noted that Kyle Kulinski is a construct of another fake left disinformation peddler, Cenk Uygur.

However, while Kulinski does that, he peppers in so much disinformation and self-contradictory BS, he completely convolutes the essential lesson to be learned from “ISIS™” and Iraq and Syria as a whole leaving his “secular progressive” audience with the distinct impression that we are right and just to be fighting “ISIS™”

In short, Fox “News” couldn’t have done it better and in fact, Fox “News” couldn’t have done it at all with his audience of “secular progressives”, hence the controlled opposition function he performs is served.

In order to expose this clown for what he is, I’ve decided to take his little video point by point and show you exactly what he’s doing and how he’s twisting the facts in order to preserve the sanctity of the Global War OF Terror via his rather extravagant  “ISIS™” disinformation.

Let’s get started, shall we?

No. South Sudan is NOT a Regime Change Operation – It’s a Product Re-branding Program

by Scott Creighton

It bothers me a great deal when I read or hear misinformation spread by otherwise credible sources. These days it’s hard to figure out who has sold out and who hasn’t… as of yet. That’s why when I listened to the X22 Report yesterday I was a bit surprised to hear him infer that Obama had betrayed the government of South Sudan by making them sign a deal in order to ease the internal conflict in the country. X22 made a comparison between that arrangement and the Minsk II agreement in Ukraine which is ridiculous on it’s surface but more troubling is equating the illegitimate government of South Sudan to the rebels in eastern Ukraine.

As is often the case as of late, the United States has found itself in the unenviable position of having to remove various puppet leaders when things get too bad, or, more importantly, too visible on the international stage for them to continue to rule with an shred of legitimacy. It isn’t really about maintaining the illusion of legitimacy for our government’s client state in the nation as it is providing the indigenous population the pretext to “believe” that “change” is upon them.

I’ll give you a couple examples with the most notable being another case that was twisted by the so-called “alternative” gurus out there like “Tony Cartalucci” and Webster Tarpley and that is the example of the 2011 Egyptian revolution.
