Hillary Clinton and the Brutal Murder of Gaddafi

(Here is an article talking about some more of that “American Exceptionalism” everyone is talking about since Trump had the poor taste to tell a report that our leaders murder folks as well. Of course, I don’t know of a single proven incident where Vladamir Putin has killed or ordered the death of one person, much less entire countries, but who’s counting?)

by John Wight, Counterpunch

On October 20, 2011, Libya’s Muammar al-Gaddafi was brutally murdered by a mob of NATO-backed ‘rebels’, after first being beaten and violated in the most barbaric fashion. History leaves no doubt that not only was the Libyan leader murdered on this day but Libya itself.

The regime-change crew who dominate Western governments have a long indictment sheet against their names. Since 9/11 they have wrought havoc and human misery on a grand scale in their determination to reshape and own a world that has never been theirs to own. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya – Syria currently embroiled in a pitiless conflict for its survival as a secular, non-sectarian state – this is the miserable legacy of nations which speak the language of democracy while practising the politics of domination…

No. Putin Did Not Try to Thwart Hillary’s Candidacy Like She Did to Him in 2012. He Didn’t Have To

by Scott Creighton

Pussy Riot™  mission statement: When the world is being neoliberalized as fast as possible and the masters of the universe demand tribute from those seeking a place at the table, no effort to assist in that endeavor , no matter how sophomoric or insipid, no matter how ridiculous, no matter how contrived, shall go unrewarded. And Pussy Riot™ will be there to cash in

Not that long ago President Obama said that Russia and President Putin had tried to influence the outcome of our election process and that it was “unacceptable” behavior for a nation to attempt to influence the democratic process of other nations. Forget for a second that his evidence was so laughable that the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that cobbled it together, posted a disclaimer on the first page of the report that said it didn’t stand by a single shred of “proof” in it’s own report:

this report is provided “as is” for informational purposes only. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within.”

Let’s also forget for a moment the troubling rise of the New McCarthyism in America and the lynch-mob mentality that goes along with it.

Russia did not attempt to influence our election. They did not “hack” the DNC, Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server nor the email account of the perpetually corrupt John Podesta. Even if they did, which they didn’t, all they did was expose the truth about these three deeply tainted entities. No one has disputed the authenticity of the leaks. They stand as an accurate representation of the level of corruption that exists in the fake left that is the unDemocratic Party of America these days. This is a footnote that gets lost in the discussion far too often these days.

Which leads me to ask one simple question: since when is it considered “unacceptable” behavior to expose the truth about corruption at the highest ranks in the American political system?

Oh, that’s right. President Peace Prize made it a priority to wage war on whistle-blowers throughout the duration of his tenure.

For all the McCarthyite efforts being put forward by the breathless ladder-climbers of the corporate propaganda mills which pass for “news organizations” these days I am often awestruck by those who seem to wish to demand their guests present a kind of American exceptionalism when it comes to comparisons between this fake news story about Russia “hacking” our democracy and the altogether too real history of our State Department and the CIA doing the exact same thing to other countries across the globe. The hypocrisy is simply stunning.  And that is  when a guest has the audacity to bring up said history, which doesn’t happen very often.

And that is to say nothing of Hillary Clinton’s effort to use “smart power” to thwart Vladamir Putin’s reelection in 2012. In the corporate media the silence is deafening on that subject.

US airstrikes in Libya doubled in less than 30 days

from Press TV

The US military has dramatically increased the number of its airstrikes in Libya in less than a month, new data shows, further cementing President Barack Obama’s record of taking more military action than any other American president.

American fighter jets and drones stationed aboard the amphibious assault vessel USS Wasp off the Libyan coast, have so far carried out 324 airstrikes in the country, according to data by the Pentagon’s Africa Command, which leads the operation.

This is more than two times the 161 air raids that the US had carried out in Libya until September 21.

According to a report by Reuters, American aircraft had conducted more than 30 strikes across Libya between Saturday and Monday.

Washington began the air campaign on August 1, under the pretext of taking out the Daesh (ISIL) Takfiri terrorists, who raised to power in the oil-rich country after the NATO-backed ousting and death of longtime ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

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.

The Tale of Two Benghazi Reports: The Shillin for Killary Never Ends

by Scott Creighton

The shillin for Killary Clinton never ends. “So let’s make her president” says the fascist arm of the New Dem “left”

When Rep. Elijah Cummings wasn’t sitting on the floor in congress fighting for the New Dems’  fascist “no buy no fly” secret list building legislation that strips citizens of their constitutional rights via secret evidence considered by arbitrary panels in the “Justice” Department, he was sitting on his fat ass in the House Select Committee on Benghazi as the leading member of the minority party and therefore the Chief White-washer and Brand Defender of his presidential choice, darling champion of the working man, Hillary Clinton.

The republicans of the Select Committee announced they were finally going to release the results of their two year study today, Tuesday, June 28th.

So to offset the effects of that release, sycophant to power Elijah Cummings released the “minority report” from the Democrats late yesterday, which though unofficial, promises to provide enough covering energy for Killary long enough to distract those who wish to be distracted until this new Killary Crime blows over.

Though Elijah says the republican version is nothing more than “partisan politics”, his report is packed full of partisan headings like these:

  • Secretary Clinton Never Personally Denied Security Requests
  • Secretary Clinton was Active and Engaged
  • Terrorists Caused Attacks in Benghazi Not US Foreign Policy
  • Unsubstantiated Claim that Documents Were Scrubbed
  • Unsubstantiated Claim that CIA Shipped Arms From Libya to Another Country
  • No Evidence Talking Points Politicized

Aside from the fact that there are literally piles of evidence which suggest Rep. Cummings and anyone else who prepared this minority report are lying through their teeth about much of these statements, fact is, we wont really know how much evidence there SHOULD BE because the criminal and neoliberal war-monger Hillary Clinton ERASED 30,000 OFFICIAL STATE DEPARTMENT EMAILS before turning over a carefully screened selection of what she said were “all” of them.

That being said about the Cummings/New Dem cover-up for the fascist Clinton State Department days, there are already tid-bits from the Republican version of the commission findings making their way to the public domain already and the picture they paint, though not vastly different than the white-wash presented by their opposition, is still quite damning in it’s own right.

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.
