The Coalition Bombing of Civilians in Manbij Syria Was No Accident (and they weren’t targeting “ISIS”)

by Scott Creighton

“We have now have momentum in this fight and clear results on the ground… We must ensure that our partners on the ground (freedom fighter Kurds) have what they need to win the fight and then hold, rebuild, and govern their territory (“Rojava”),” Sec. of Defense Ash Carter, today

The coalition bombing in Syria this past week was not a one off mistake where they “mistook” women and children in a village for “ISIS”.

Given the fog of war and our complicit media servants here in the states, it’s understandable how more of our so-called “alternative anti-war” news outlets haven’t picked up on this yet, but in reality what happened appears to be a sustained attack on a civilian area carried out by US and French warplanes over a two day period.

To me it looks like they have given up on the “ISIS” pretense and are clearing out a problematic areas for the Kurds to claim and occupy as part of what they call Rojava, or “Western Kurdistan”, part of Greater Kurdistan (something we aren’t supposed to speak of)

First, let’s make what happened very clear: there were several attacks on this area over the course of two days during which as many as 200 civilians were killed, mostly women and children. It was a slaughter. You might even call it a “cleansing” of the area north of Manbij.

The Boss Level of Stupid in the Hillary Clinton Propaganda Campaign: “You down with TPP?”

by Scott Creighton

and so did Warren!

You down with TPP?!” Fallon

Yeah, you know me!” Obama

On the same day that neoliberal corporate shill President Obama “made history” by endorsing his political mentor and benefactor, neoliberal corporate shill Hillary Clinton, he also did a little stunt on the Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show, something called “Slo Jam News” where Obama, Fallon and some other guy, “slo jam” various outrageous propaganda points about the ‘success” of the Obama administration.

It’s supposed to be hip and funny and irreverent and get the real message out to all those young Jimmy Fallon viewers who might be crossovers from the Sanders campaign which Hillary and her team suppressed, disenfranchised and otherwise just flat out robbed of their primary election votes.

Keep in mind, this little propaganda stunt took place a mere two hours after “progressive” “liberal” anti-corporate, anti-globalization senator Elizabeth Warren sold out on the Rachel Maddow show and gave a breathless, life or death fear-mongering endorsement of neoliberal corporate shill Hillary Clinton. Elizabeth Warren and the Sanders supporters her endorsement was designed to target are extremely dead set against fascist corporate trade deals like the TTIP, TiSA and of course, the TPP.

Washington to Moscow: Stop Targeting al-Qaeda in Syria – You’ll Kill Our Moderates!

(“Stop killing our moderate terrorists. And leave al Qaeda alone!” President Peace Prize to the Russians. Wow.)

by Daniel McAdams

The Associated Press is reporting this afternoon that the Obama Administration has requested that the Russians cease and desist from bombing al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front in Syria because Washington’s “moderate” rebels are fighting together with al-Qaeda in Syria and any attack on al-Qaeda could kill Washington’s “moderates.”

The Obama Administration thus continues with the fiction that there are completely separate, vetted, moderate rebels who are dedicated to creating an inclusive, multi-cultural and multi-confessional, secular, and democratic Syria as soon as both ISIS and the Assad government are defeated.

The fiction is repeated constantly, in the manner of all state propaganda, by straight-faced US White House and State Department spokespersons. “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?” is the order of the day.

Washington admits that its moderates are training with, integrated with, sharing weapons with, and fighting alongside affiliates of those who attacked the US on 9/11 and no one had better dare to attack al-Qaeda lest they harm these moderates.

Bathroom Brawl: Obama Administration Using Transgendered to Further Their School Privatization Agenda

by Scott Creighton

Under the left cover of President Barack Obama, his administration has been steadfast in it’s pursuit of the reactionary privatization of the entire public school system. From start to finish, “progressive” President Obama has been working diligently to neoliberalize as much of the state of the United States as he could possibly get away with.

  • Obama’s Public Education Policy: Privatization, Charters, Mass Firings, Neighborhood DestabilizationBruce Dixon, 2009
  • Obama Administration Enables Billionaire Takeover of America’s Public SchoolsDustin Beike, Jan. 2016

This ideology of wringing profits from state functions dates back to Augusto Pinochet’s neoliberal “miracle of Chile”: the Milton Friedman/ Henry Kissinger free-market experiment that took place after the CIA-backed coup in 1973 (on Sept. 11th, 1973 to be exact)

We can now add to his previous attempts at mass firings, the “Race to the Top” and under-funding destabilization campaigns, their most recent effort to undermine the institution of public education: the Bathroom Brawl crisis.

When presidents embark on their last year in office, they tend to attempt to wrap-up as many dangling projects as they can in service to the masters of the universe that they serve. Hence we are now looking at yet another set of phony sarin gas reports from Syria, a project President Peace Prize would love to bring to a conclusion prior to his leaving office. Getting the TPP and the TTIP signed and delivered is another project he would like to accomplish before he leaves.

We can add to that his desire to bring the school privatization project further along before he and his family clean out the linen closet at 1600.

Russia Sells Out Syria – Opens Syrian Kurdistan NGO Offices in Moscow as Balkinization Process Begins

by Scott Creighton

Fuck Russia.

Syrian Kurdish activists cut the ribbon

Participants pose for a picture during a ceremony opening a representative office of Syrian Kurdistan in Moscow, Russia, February 10, 2016.

This is a very sad day. Syria, after withstanding 5 years of terrorist proxy regime change warfare waged upon her by our beloved “progressive” President Obama and the CIA, is about to be chopped up like the Clintons did to Yugoslavia so long ago. They are in the process of making Syrian Kurdistan on route to Greater Kurdistan and it would appear the Russian knight in shining armor okay with that. Makes you kind of wonder what they traded for the Syrian’s country. Ukraine?

The best coverage of this latest development comes from Penny for Your Thoughts. Mine will be brief in that it is deeply disturbing to me.

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?
