How Do Barney Fife and Fidel Castro Factor Into the Biggest News Story of the Year?

by Scott Creighton

I wish to see if I can connect a few dots here, so bear with me.

Putting aside “ISIS™” for a moment and the “Big Story” about some talking head on MSNBC lying to folks (yeah, there’s some news for you) what are the biggest geopolitical trends in the news today? Is it the fact that Syriza, the new “Radical Left™” brand of 3rd Way centrist ideology (think “CHANGE™” circa 2008) seems to have forgotten what the term “odious debt” means?

In international law, odious debt, also known as illegitimate debt, is a legal theory that holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion. Wiki

Is that the biggest story in the world today? Well, if you consider the fact that international debt has risen by 57 trillion dollars since the global economic terrorism of 2008, coupled with the fact that much if not ALL of that new additional debt may be declared odious were Greece to set the precedent, well, that could very well be the story of the year. The story of the decade or the millennium in fact.

But it isn’t, because they wont (“use us to implement the European programme” Varoufakis).

And the usually antagonistic ones, the Webster Tarpley’s of the “interwebs”, aren’t really calling for Syriza to live up to their campaign pledge and do that.

How about “ISIS™”? Now that the MTV music video director and their team made that “burning man” video, seems like all the world wants a piece of “ISIS™” butt.

We have senators and congressman lining up to get in front of anyone with a camera so they can pledge their undying devotion to autocratic, despotic regimes like those in Jordan, UAE, Bahrain and Qatar for the sole purpose of providing them weapons and training, all paid for with your tax dollars while they say they can’t afford to pay teachers here in the states.

No money for teachers or disabled folks but we got butt-loads of cash to heap on dictators from the Middle East to help bomb Syria into regime change. Funny how that works, ain’t it?

We have “progressive” TV personalities spending enormous amounts of their airtime proving what warmongering hawks they can be just like the neocons of yesteryear they pilloried for a decade.

We have the Obama administration, the President Peace Prize farce, presenting their own version, a hand-crafted document they expect to be passed without debate, authorizing war anywhere, anytime against anyone they say is supporting “ISIS™”. That new AUMF document, one usually crafted by congress, will be slapped on the desks of leading congressmen sometime today or tomorrow. It’s something this president has wanted since they created “ISIS™” now that the old one from 2001 is a bit sketchy considering the fact that it names al Qaeda as the enemy and we now call them “moderates” and are funding them in Syria.

And all of this is based on what? A ridiculous MTV-styled video custom made for the purpose of providing the pretext for what is happening right now and released on the very same day the King of Jordan was visiting Obama and congress looking for money to fight “ISIS™”. (I will write more about that video later this morning)

Are those the biggest stories in the world today?

No. Not in my opinion.

So what is? What is the one big story everyone knows about and no one is talking about and how does Barney Fife and Fidel Castro of all people fit into this? Have I gone crazy? Inquiring minds want to know.

Prediction: The Ebola Crisis to Hit Burkina Faso Very Soon – Cuba to Send Doctors, Obama to Send Special Forces

by Scott Creighton

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”  Thomas Jefferson (slave owner)

Embedded image permalink

People are only going to put up with being treated like shit for so long…

Yes, I am making a prediction and I never make predictions but this one isn’t that hard too see coming: Gomer Pile could see the writing on the wall here.

In the next few weeks there will be reports of a new Ebola outbreak in a little African nation called Burkina Faso.

Am I psychic? Does God speak to me in dreams? Should I build an arc or sacrifice a chicken?

Uh… no.

This is my vision:

a hundred thousand of the millions protesting in Ouaggadougou, Burkina Faso against legislation that would keep their current neoliberal dictator in place in perpetuity.

And this is my vision:

Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in Africa and it’s been ruled by a fascist dictator on behalf of the French and other Western nations for the past 27 years. These people have had enough.

 

And ultimately,this is my vision:

“The United States has a base in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, since 2007. The base acts as a hub of a U.S spying network in the region, with spy planes departing form the base to fly over Mali, Mauritania and the Sahara, where they search for fighters from al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.” Washington Post May 21, 2014

Yes, the CIA has a base of operations in the very city in Burkina Faso where these hundreds of thousands of protesters are engaged in a direct fight to rid themselves of our “national interests” and their brutal dictator. That’s right… it’s a drone base used by the CIA to drop bombs on dissidents across the whole of Africa.

How important do you think that is to Capitalism’s Invisible Army?

Do you see Ebola on the horizon now? You will after reading this because the World Health Organization just recently listed the nation as one which is in danger of an outbreak very soon. Go figure.

Behind the Nigerian Hash-tag Trick PART 1. – The Pledge: Disappearance of the Innocents

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Kenny’s Sideshow has a good article on this same subject.

PART 1. – The Pledge: Disappearance of the Innocents

Won’t SOMEBODY think of the OIL… oops, I mean, the CHILDREN!!!!! [screech screech screeeeeeech]

“So, do your part and tweet and Instagram the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag, demanding that the Nigerian army rescue these innocent schoolgirls and return them to their families.

HollywoodLifers, do YOU think the American government should offer more help to rescue these poor Nigerian schoolgirls? Let me know.” Bonnie Fuller

#SendInCIADeathsquadsForObamaGod

#CrushRevolutionInNigeriaForChevron

#KonyBokoHaramIsHitler

The story goes that the evil Boko Haram (being translated as “Western education is forbidden.”) walked into a school when 200 or so young girls were taking their college prep exams and scooted them out the door, into a bus, and eventually out into the jungle where they are going to be sold at auction by the dreaded evil-doers. There is even a handy video of the leader of the perps announcing this plan of his to the world so we can all be justifiably disgusted and rally around a full on invasion of his country. How convenient that this leader didn’t see that one coming. He really needs a better PR guy.

And the story went that the evil Saddam Hussein had his troops break into hospitals in Kuwait to steal the all important incubators, throwing the little babies onto the cold concrete floor like so much garbage right in front of people who they let live so they could tell the horrible story. Because?  Saddam .. loved… incubators?

You don’t need a “because” in the psyop world because you have people like Bonnie Fuller up there who only need to know that the cause is right and just and it will advance her career if she backs the right side of the incredibly stupid story. Look like an idiot, prove your loyalty, advance up the corporate ladder.

There is a hashtag “movement” of sorts where you are all invited to “stand with Michelle Obama” and various wonderful celebrities calling for military and intelligence aid to be sent to Nigeria to wage war on these savages.

The beautiful people have taken selfies with various placards announcing their solidarity with the imperialism movement. I have taken liberties to translate the actual meaning of a few.

michelle-obama-bring-back-our-girls-bonnie-says-ftrreal-men-dont-buy-girls-justin-timberlakereal-men-dont-buy-girls-sean-penn

Oh they are all so solemn. Oh they are all so serious.

Of course none of those pictured above will be sent to deep dark Africa to fight the evil-doers. Nor will their children or grandchildren for that matter. Because, you see, they are all rich and rich people don’t sacrifice their offspring on the alter of Mammon. They offer up yours instead and ask you, with a solemn stare, to do so with a glad heart. For the children, of course.

So what is really happening in Nigeria? What is this all about? 200 little girls? Something else?

Cameron Promises to “close down the ungoverned spaces” in Endless War on Terror

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: AP Jan. 22 2013

“American planes transported French troops and equipment to Mali, a U.S. military spokesman said Tuesday, as Malian and French forces pushed into the Islamist-held north.”

——

Blonde haired, Blue eyed, English speaking “Islamists’ taking hostages in Algeria giving blonde haired, blue eyed, English speaking David Cameron the opportunity to invade and re-colonize the nation under the auspices of the mythical “endless war on terror” (Global Free Market Wars). It’s all about “closing down the ungoverned spaces” as Cameron honestly puts it. And as it just so happens, all the witnesses hostages are “accidentally” killed in the attack. What a coincidence, huh?

It takes a really good education to miss all of this” Chomsky

After KONY2012 failed due to their closeted pitchman being a meth addict and running naked in San Diego for all too see his little bits on the side of the road, the powers that be in the U.S. created the nearly as disastrous Innocence of the Muslims Psyop to serve the exact same ends: create a pretext for President Obama to put away his phony Peace Prize and launch a continent-wide aggressive, illegal, immoral military campaign on countless little countries (35 to be exact) in order to recolonize them and make them bend to the will of the IMF/World Bank and the various other masters of the universe.

What does “ungoverned spaces” mean? It means places that currently reside peacefully under governments that don’t serve the interests of the Bank for International Settlements cabal. It means places where they can’t pawn off credit default swaps to crash the economy. It means places where their technocrats don’t run the country yet. It means places that are still run by all those unstable democratic elections.

It’s not that they don’t have a government, they just don’t have a government that bows to our interests like we do. Therefore, they are ungoverned spaces. That’s what it means.

Destabilizing Africa: Terror in North Africa: are Westerners pulling the strings?

from the Independent

Canada is investigating an allegation by the Algerian Prime Minister that one of its citizens co-ordinated the terror raid at the Saharan gas plant in which dozens of hostages were killed.

Westerners, including a man with blond hair and blue eyes, are believed to have been among the Islamist militants who launched last week’s attack on the Tigantourine complex near Algeria’s border with Libya.

SOHR and MSM Use Same “Bomb” Prop for Another Regime Change Video

by Scott Creighton

The Associated Press is reporting another set of phantom airstrikes by the ruthless Syrian government on the civilian population, this time around the Damascus suburbs and the Syrian town of Azaz near the Turkish border.

The reports are unconformable of course and they come from two highly dubious sources: the SOHR and the Turkish government.

As ridiculous as it is to take at their word two institutions that are currently working to force regime change in Syria, what makes this recent example even funnier is they focus their “proof’ on a piece of an old Soviet cluster bomb they have already used in the past. They didn’t even clean it off or paint it or anything. They seem to have dug it out of the back of some PR guys SUV and stuck it down in the ground in another town.

Oscar Unchained: Dark Thirty Approaches

by Scott Creighton

All across the country the debate is raging: gun “nuts” verses the rational, reasonable pragmatics who wish to enact gun “control” on our society in response to all the senseless violence of the past 6 months. The “liberal” left and the “moderate” right are coming together as they have in the past on issues like extending the FISA warrentless wiretapping, the Global Free Market Wars, the TARP banker bailouts plan, NDAA 2012, constant warmongering sanctions on the people of Iran, keeping Gitmo open and torture. The pragmatic center which houses the likes of Brennan and Panetta and Clinton and the Bush clan are teaming up with the Hollywood elites to push for gun “control” in order to make us a safer society. Now is the time they say to take action to end this senseless violence in America.

But while they do that, and I mean right in the middle of this push, out comes today’s Oscar nominees and what films do you think lead the pack in the category of Best Film? “Zero Dark Thirty”, “Argo” and “Django Unchained”

Two films of admitted CIA propaganda justifying horrific violence and one of gratuitous desensitizing gun violence taken too an unprecedented and even comedic level.

This is the best of the year that Hollywood has to offer a country that is sick of undeclared wars, random drone strikes killing children and mass shootings in theaters, malls and elementary schools?

All this while an early Oscar favorite, a film that received a 10 minute standing ovation at the Toronto Film Festival, garnered not one single Oscar nomination. Not one. It’s message, perhaps it’s warning, was simple and completely ignored:

“Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others past and present. And by each crime and every kindness we birth our future”

What are we becoming?
