Thanks to Obama Doing Away with Habeas Corpus, Protesters Can Now Be Held Indefinitely Without Trial by King Donald the Rich

by Scott Creighton

They don’t call it “left cover” for nothing, do they?

These days, like the Brownshirts of days gone by, fake “alternative” gurus like Jeff Rense and Di$info Jone$ are squawking about attacking and locking up anti-Trump protesters. High on their Tangy Tangerine enemas and homosexually fortified juice boxes, these one-time pretend defenders of our constitutional rights screech endlessly about bashing the dirty commie lefty hipsters who dare oppose the wishes of King Donald the Rich.

Is it any surprise that they seem blissfully ignorant of the worrisome fact that their glorious neoliberal leader is in the process of having DHS categorize protesters as “domestic terrorists”?

“The United States government considered Nelson Mandela a terrorist until 2008. Mandela was a designated terrorist 18 years after he was released from prison, 15 years after he won the Nobel peace prize, and 14 years after he was elected president of South Africa…

Earlier this week, we learned that people in Portland organizing against police killings of Black men, white nationalist politicians, and the countless systems of racism throughout our local, state, and federal governments are now considered “domestic terrorists” by Department of Homeland Security. Why? Because the Portland Police Bureau labeled the November 10, 2016 protest a “riot.” ACLU March 2017

Too say this is a troubling development doesn’t go nearly far enough but remember, President Trump is only capable of doing this because of President Peace Prize and the magic of left cover.

Of Course Trump Tower was Watergated – They Spied on Congress, They Spied on Everyone and they Still Do

by Scott Creighton

It’s funny isn’t it? Watching all the complicit talking heads and op-ed writers for the propaganda rags screech about how Trump “lied” when he said that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the run-up to the general election, hearing them say the CIA and the FBI doesn’t spy on US civilians… doesn’t intercept their calls… doesn’t read their emails… and that the president simply can’t order surveillance on a US citizen even if he wanted to.

It’s funny like watching Steven Colbert USED to be funny back in the good old Cheney White House days. Before he became a shill for Shillery.

The Obama administration was all in during the campaign. The First Couple gave more campaign speeches than Hillary did toward the end… about the same time Trump says they were simultaneously spying on his campaign… kinda like Watergate.

And what would they fear doing so? They knew they had the “election” in the bag and Killary would take over after Obama to continue his foreign policy agenda and guard over the evidence that Obama broke the law on her behalf. Hell, the DNC cheated for her.The California state attorney general cheated for her. The press cheated for her. Everyone cheated for Hillary’s coronation.

And we’re supposed to think the establishment of the intelligence community didn’t? The same intel community who collects everything from everyone and has been doing so for a decade or so? The same intel community that backed Hillary Clinton’s candidacy (see this, this and this)? The same intel community that are steadily doing their best to de-legitimize the presidency of Donald Trump (see this, this and this)? Really?

Of course Trump Tower was Watergated. We all are. It was called ‘total information awareness’ but now it’s just the world we live in. Here, have a look:

Ninth Circuit Court Upholds Judge James L. Robart’s TRO on Behalf of Big Business and their (near) Slave Labor Importing Scheme

by Scott Creighton

At first it was a “Muslim ban”. Then it was a “travel ban”. But let’s call it what it is… a ban on cheap labor shipped over from destabilized countries made up of refugees the Obama administration has created with their endless Globalist Free Market Wars and his “moderate” terrorists, his CIA company men, that helped destabilize them.

Yesterday, the Ninth Circuit Court in San Fransisco voted 3-0 to usurp national and constitutional law and uphold the Temporary Restraining Order issued by Judge James L. Robart on behalf of the plaintiffs, the states of Washington and Minnesota along with a number of Big Businesses  from those states. Their argument (once you got past the PR bullshit that Microsoft, Amazon and other only cared about keeping some woman from visiting her sister here in the states that just happened to be working at Amazon or some such crap) is that the ban would hurt their business by keeping them from profiting off the cheap labor.

Microsoft, Amazon, and Expedia  have filed a lawsuit basically claiming the Trump executive order is going to hurt their profit margins because the cheap labor provided by the refugees will be unavailable now.” Scott Creighton

“A federal judge in Washington has joined several of his counterparts across the country in ruling against the federal government’s executive order that restricts citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

In the suit, which was filed by the State of Washington earlier in the week, officials from Expedia and Amazon filed formal legal declarations saying that their employees are directly affected by the President Donald Trump’s policy. Expedia further explained that its business interests would be negatively impacted if the executive order was allowed to stand.Ars Technica

Both Amazon and Expedia are also preparing statements that demonstrate the order’s negative impact on their business.” CNBC

Judge Robart’s decision did not overturn Trump’s executive order, all it did was issue a temporary ban on the restriction based on Robart’s opinion that there was a possibility of the suit’s success in the future.

What that did was keep the doors open a little longer for Obama’s terrorists to file into the country so they can start their new lives (and new jobs at Microsoft, Amazon, Expedia and Starbucks) after terrorizing places like Syria and Libya, just like the CIA and State Department promised them. Can you say “special immigrant visas”?

On Tuesday, he and other DHS officials announced additional exceptions to the order. Iraqi nationals will now be eligible for entry using Special Immigrant Visas, which are granted to people who worked for or on behalf of the U.S. government in Iraq, officials said.” Elise Folley

The Ninth Circuit ruling is a striking example of judicial reactionary activism gone too far… on behalf of Big Business. Like we haven’t seen that before. Ironically enough, it is being couched in the complicit press as an example of the “liberalism” of the court when nothing could be further from the truth.

All Hell Breaks Loose Last Night in New York and Syria So Obama Goes Ahead with Race-baiting Campaign Event for Hillary

by Scott Creighton

priority-1

With bombs going off and being found in New York (8:30pm EST) and an emergency UN Security Council meeting (7:30 pm EST) called to discuss the Pentagon openly attacking the Syrian military yesterday (which killed 63 Syrian soldiers and allowed “ISIS” to surge after the attack) President Obama went forward with his scheduled speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference in which he angrily instructed black people to get out the vote for Hillary. He told them he would be “insulted” if they didn’t come out for the corrupt war-monger this year like they did for him in 2008 and 2012 when Obama represented the idea of “CHANGE” and supposedly opposed interventionism across the world.

After the initial explosion a second device, a pressure cooker with a phone taped to it, was found. The validity of that device remains in question as it was not detonated at the site but rather taken back to be investigated and it supposedly had a note written on a piece of paper found with it.

Bombs going off in New York city, a possible war unfolding in the Middle East… and Obama’s primary objective is to go out and angrily instruct black people that they need to vote for one of the most disliked war-mongering candidates in the history of American politics? The same candidate who’s previous campaign produced the Birther movement?

Is this a joke?

Nope. No joke.

Ataturk Airport Bombing ala Gladio 2.0, Steals Headlines from Benghazi/CIA Commission Report

by Scott Creighton

You can always count on “ISIS™” to strike at the most opportune moment for Western interests. This is a pattern that has been well established in recent “ISIS™” history.

When we started loosing control of our puppet regime in war-torn Libya and the people started rising up to kick our corrupt cronies to the curb, “ISIS™” suddenly showed up and thus we had all the justification we needed to start bombing again.

It works something like this:

https://willyloman.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/big-picture.jpg?w=252&h=216

When globalist interests wanted Japan to tear-up their peace constitution making way for Obama’s “pivot to Asia”, “ISIS™” decided to make a ridiculous beheading video featuring Hapless Haruna which was so badly Photoshoped, not only did Fox News have to admit it was a fake, but the Japanese people started up a bad Photoshop contest making fun of the “news’ story.

On Dec. 25th, 2014, I entered the contest with this effort. Notice how it pulls “ISIS™” into the all important War on Christmas? Subtle, huh?

santa

I think I should have won but since I’m not Japanese and since I made it with Autocad and not Photoshop, I was disqualified. Racist bastards.

Truth is, there is a VERY long history of “ISIS™” popping up just where they are needed to justify whatever the CIA or the MIC or NATO or Obama wants at the moment. Unless you are brain-dead or a total shill (or coward), you cannot deny it.

Work for Slave Wages or Starve: Democrats silent as one million lose food stamp benefits

from WSWS

Tens of thousands of impoverished, unemployed adults were cut off food stamps Friday, the first wave of a social catastrophe that could affect more than one million people this year.

Some 22 states began terminating benefits for “Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents,” or ABAWDs, in the jargon of the US Department of Agriculture, which administers the federally funded food stamp program, or Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), as it is formally known.

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.
