1.  “former human rights advocate” Samantha Power runs over a small child in Africa – foreshadowing?

US Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, took a feel-good PR trip to Cameroon a few days ago where her motorcade promptly ran over a small child and killed him as the neoliberal Power and team were racing through the country at over 60mph. Power, wife of Cass Sunstein, another favorite of mine, felt “real bad” about running over a child, so she got her PR team together and they decide to take some pictures of her with some other little African kids whom she hasn’t run over as of yet.

Power, who once called Hillary Clinton a “monster“, is described by the Boston Globe as a “former.. human rights advocate“.  “Former” being the active word I suppose. Of course, what she really was, was an embedded journalist/cheerleader for such imperial missions as the destruction of Yugoslavia. She covered that “humanitarian” mission for the Boston Globe.

Hillary Clinton is busy defending her support of the illegal coup in Honduras back in 2009 – “Clinton justified the move despite opposing advice from her top aides, who urged her to declare it a military coup, and to cut off U.S. aid, as some emails leaked in July revealed.”

There have been 59 journalists murdered in Honduras since Hillary’s coup – “Since the 2009 U.S.-backed coup that removed President Manuel Zelaya, 59 journalists have been assassinated in Honduras, with four of them being murdered just in 2016 alone.”

(I will be making ready for a move today so I will be away from the computer for a while. I’m taking in a new roomie… my dear old moms. I’ll check in once I relocate my desk and computer. You guys have a good day.)

The Israel Lobby’s Totalitarian Agenda: Smash Free Speech and Criminalize Resistance – “Free speech is being used in our country to denigrate Israel and we need to actively fight against that,” Ros-Lehtinen… (Hillary) “Clinton vowed to punish the campus left for supporting Palestinian human rights. Slamming BDS as a form of anti-Semitic hate speech…”

New Study Shows Mass Government Surveillance Silences Unpopular Opinions – “The “spiral of silence” is a well-researched phenomenon in which people suppress unpopular opinions to fit in and avoid social isolation. It has been looked at in the context of social media and the echo-chamber effect, in which we tailor our opinions to fit the online activity of our Facebook and Twitter friends.”

ABC News Censors Interview with Vaxxed Producer, Secretly Recorded in Full – “You can practically hear the cognitive dissonance slapping the reporter in the face during this interview. This is the full UNCUT interview that ABC World News conducted with Del Bigtree of the “VAXXED” documentary now censored by Robert De Niro and the Tribeca Film Festival.”

UPDATE: Trump threatens Bernie Sanders by telling him in a Tweet that he will send his fascist,ultra-right-wing followers to his campaign events.

– Fascist Trump blames “communist” Sanders for Soros’ BLM Disrupters – “these other people by the way, some represented Bernie, our communist friend. Now really Bernie should tell his people…he should really get up and say to his people ‘stop, stop,'” The BLM astroturf group has been harassing the Sanders campaign on behalf of their sponsor, billionaire George Soros, for quite sometime now. I don’t find it that hard too believe that they deliberate took Sanders campaign posters in with them in order to frame the Sanders supporters for their disruptive actions. It’s clear that Hillary Clinton is winning because of the minority vote across the country and it’s also clear that BLM supports, if only tacitly, the campaign of Hillary Clinton.

MoveOn.org which officially backed Sanders in Jan of this year due to a landslide victory he posted among MoveOn members, has admitted to providing assistance to some of the protesters.  MoveOn has been supported by Soros in the past.

The destabilization designers even gave one of the “protesters” a communist flag to wave around in front of the cameras, just in case the right-wing fascist media outlets like Fox News and Prison Planet were having a hard time blaming this on the dreaded “leftists”

Palestinian siblings killed in Gaza by Israeli airstrike –  “A six-year-old Palestinian girl and her 10-year-old brother were killed in the Gaza Strip by fragments from a missile fired by an Israeli aircraft, medical officials said.”

Kerry meets with French, British, German and Italian foreign ministers ahead of Syrian peace talks to hammer out deal to break up Syria – “U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is meeting with new French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and Europe’s top diplomats to discuss major international issues including the Syria peace talks.” Kerry has been a long-time advocate for direct attacks against the elected government in Syria. To think his meeting with these foreign leaders has anything to do with the success of a negotiated peace deal in Syria is naive at best.

UN report details the government we created in South Sudan (we created South Sudan) using rape as a tool of war against people who support rebels in the country – “These shocking revelations come from a U.N. report accusing the South Sudanese government of turning a blind eye to soldiers while they took on a “scorched earth policy” to commit human rights violations and violence against civilians, even allowing them to rape women in lieu of paying wages. ” The civil war in South Sudan has been going on for 2 years now, without any kind of attention from the MSM because we created the country and support them in their opposition to Sudan, who is aligned with the Chinese. The thug we put in place to rule the new country,  Salva Kiir Mayardit, still wears the black cowboy hat given to him by George W. Bush when he was selected to be out puppet over there.

Obama droned another 150 people to death, this time in Somalia, a country we have no business in – “Other than the higher-than-normal death toll, this mass killing is an incredibly common event under the presidency of the 2009 Nobel Peace laureate, who has so far bombed seven predominantly Muslim countries. As Nick Turse has reported in The Intercept, Obama has aggressively expanded the stealth drone program and secret war in Africa.”

US-backed Saudi coalition backing former dictator, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, move on Yemen’s third largest city – “The coalition has been trying for a year to roll back gains by the Houthi militia and restore Hadi, who is currently in Saudi Arabia. The war has killed more than 6,000 people and displaced millions.

The push for our new freedom fighters, the Kurds, to help them forge their own country from stolen pieces of Iraq, Syria, Iran and Turkey is real. Very real.

Many stories have dropped off the MSM radar recently. I thought I would do a little update on a couple of them for you.

Neoliberal News of the Day: Aug. 22, 2015

Korea “Crisis”

North, South Korea Agree to Talks, Amid Talk of War – “North and South Korea have agreed to hold emergency high-level talks, in an attempt to end a tense standoff that had brought the two rivals to the brink of war.”

General Dempsey: US will defend South Korea against North – “The top American general says the United States will defend its close ally South Korea amid heightening tensions between the South and North Korea.”

US, South Korea brace for clash as North Korea deadline looms  – “U.S. and South Korean bombers took to the skies on Saturday in a show of force, as the allies prepared for a potential military clash with the North as its deadline loomed for Seoul to dismantle loudspeakers broadcasting anti-North Korean propaganda across their border.”

Ukraine “Crisis”

Didn’t I say something about us seeing landmines used in Ukraine pretty soon? – Kiev ordered deployment of ‘illegal & inhumane’ anti-personnel mines – ex-Ukrainian officer“I was given, to put it mildly, inhumane or in legal terms unlawful orders by my superiors,” Yatsulyak told Russian tabloid Komsomolskya Pravda (KP) daily. “The deployment of anti-personnel mines in particular.”

‘No Good Evidence’ Russia Behind Shootdown of MH17 Plane in Ukraine – “”We’re investing 90 billion dollars a year in US intelligence and when push comes to shove, we have to rely on social media?”, he asks incredulously. “The evidence is as sketchy as one could imagine.”

Minsk -2: A Rotting Corpse – “The Minsk-2 ceasefire agreement is dead but no one wants to bury the rotting corpse. Since it was signed in February of this year the Donbas governments and Russia have bent over backward to comply with the terms of that agreement hoping against hope that the Kiev junta would do the same. They hoped in vain.”

Betrayal in Greece

EU backs Greece’s Tsipras as Left Platform splits from Syriza – “In the hours after Tsipras announced that he was resigning and calling the new elections, statements from European officials make clear that the decision was carried out under the direction of Greece’s European Union (EU) creditors.”

Greece’s Syriza party splits  – “Rebels angered by Greece’s international bailout walked out of the leftist Syriza party on Friday, formalising a widely-expected split after leader Alexis Tsipras resigned as prime minister to pave the way for early elections.”

A Tsipras Comeback Would Be Good for Greece – “In just seven months, former — and perhaps future — Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras appears to have undergone a remarkable evolution. In September’s snap election, he will stand for the opposite of what he defended in January, when he came to power. Yet the qualities that made that possible may make him a good leader for Greece going forward.”

Neoliberalizing America

(so much for his bullshit about sentencing reforms) America: A Land Where Justice Is Absent – “Obama has permitted the corrupt US Department of Justice (sic), over which he wields authority, to overturn the ruling of a US Federal Court of Appeals that prisoners sentenced illegally to longer terms than the law permits must be released once the legal portion of their sentence is served. The DOJ, devoid of all integrity, compassion, and sense of justice, said that “finality” of conviction was more important than justice. Indeed, the US Justice (sic) Department’s motto is: “Justice? We don’t need no stinkin’ justice!”

Barack Obama: The Nobel Peace Prize Winner Who Bombed Seven Countries – “In all, the U.S. has bombed 14 predominantly Muslim countries since 1980. The death toll from all modern wars in the Middle East may be as high as 4 million dead Muslims and Arabs. Repeated military campaigns have destabilized the Middle East, giving rise to terror groups like ISIS, allowing for sectarianism to blossom, and necessitating further bombing, in what Ron Fullwood, writing for MyMPN, called a “perpetual protection racket.”

(Yes. Privatization is fascism) How & Why the U.S. Media Do Propaganda Against Russia – “The owners of U.S. newsmedia know that in order to serve their fellow U.S. aristocrats who want to kick out Russia’s current leader, Vladimir Putin, so as to enable them to buy Russia’s natural resources (and highly educated work-forces) cheap via “privatizations,” their PR campaign for their fellow aristocrats (their major advertisers) must be led by ‘respectable’ newsmedia, such as Foreign Policy magazine, and not by blatantly right-wing, obviously trashy, ones, such as Fox News. Overtly conservative, nationalistic, ‘news’ media wouldn’t be able to sell to anyone who isn’t already on-board with privatizations of government assets as being a fundamental “free market” principle (i.e, equating fascism — the actual originator of privatizations — with constituting ‘capitalism,’ confusing the two systems as being one-and-the-same). So: not only the fascist media are anti-Putin, but media that pretend not to be are also.”

Neoliberal News of the Day – June 26, 2015

The press isn’t stupid everywhere – “In your opinion, is Edward Snowden a real character or one invented by the intelligence services?” asked a Russian journalist.

Obama’s fascist Obamacare is “woven into the fabric of America” while he proudly tells British conservationist his daughters don’t “question the science” of global warming. He also wants doctors and nurses to start preaching “global warming” to their patients. Meanwhile, though he once promised to take the “death-squads from above” drone program out of the hands of Capitalism’s Invisible Army (CIA), the sneaky spooks will keep their sticky fingers on the triggers for a long while to come.

Meanwhile, California has passed the most draconian vaccination law of any state which forces parents to jab their kids with at least 10 products made by Big Pharma for the privilege of attending public school. That’s right. If you want your kid to get an education, you have to pay Big Pharma in Cali.

Yep. Fascism woven into the fabric of America. There’s your “CHANGE” folks.

Russian president Putin called up ObamaGod and asked him to stop lying to everyone about Russian troops invading East Ukraine. The Peace Prize President responded by telling U.S. press lackies that he told Putin to remove his invisible troops from the area. Meanwhile, Porky Poroshenko signs a deal officially allowing President Peace Prize’s troops to flood into the country.

In a remarkable stroke of hubris, Poroshenko recently asked Ukraine’s high court to declare the overthrow and removal of the previous president an “illegal coup” so the same thing wont happen to him.

Also in the news now is that Dmitriy Yarosh‘s Right Sector — the same group that Washington had hired for the coup and for the ethnic cleansing campaign in Ukraine’s former Donbass region — have announced that they will assemble in Kiev on July 3rd to overthrow Petroshenko unless he restarts right now the war against Donbass. The people whom Washington paid to oust Yanukovych are planning to do the same to Poroshenko. There is a struggle inside the Obama Administration about how far they can successfully go with their Ukrainian nazis not formally leading the country.

It’s D-Day for Greece. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is meeting with German and French leaders to hash out the last details of their next “compromise” of brutal austerity measures for the Greek people to suffer through on behalf of their neoliberal masters. The rock-star finance minister Yanis Varoufakis says the troika wont accept an unworkable deal like the last round of austerity cuts they offered this past week. They want more blood in order to loan the people of Greece 7 billion more dollars for them to hand over to Greek bankers. The wealthy in the country are insulated against an exit from the Eurozone as well as from the brutal austerity.

Here in ‘Merika! home ownership rates have sunk to a 20 year low “household incomes have fallen, wages have stagnated and student loan debt has soared” but the biggest issue on the minds of our Vichy government is whether or not a piece of cloth should be flown in public.

Well, I shouldn’t say that’s the “only” thing they are concerned with. They are currently doing their level best to make ready for the big transition: from an open society with a representative republic form of government into a closed, repressive quasi-fascist dictatorship. After giving Obama (and Bush) Fast Track authority they have now passed legislation to give aid to all the workers they know will lose their jobs to Pacific Rim 3rd world shit-holes. And who pays for that Trade Adjustment Assistance program? You got it: the poor people and their Medicare. They also voted for a bill giving trade preferences to African nations so that now that Obama is fully engaged in his recolonization campaign, our billionaires who are flocking to the continent will get PAID for their efforts.

For fans of top-down fascism, that’s a win,win,win, win.

Over in neoliberal France, apparently some guys crashed their car into a gas canister which set off an explosion and probably blew some other guy’s head off in the process. Not one to miss a great opportunity, the French president declared it an act of terrorism by various and assorted “Islamists”  .  Now the story gets even better with a local paper saying an undisclosed source told them the head was hung on a fence with a confession in Arabic written on it. Of course, it’s “ISIS” don’t ya know.

While we are on the subject, I’ll just leave this here – ISIS: Made in Langley and propped up by Tel Aviv and Riyadh

And speaking of terrorists, there is a good article here detailing the vileness of the Clintons. Just sayin…

I wrote about her back in 2007. It was on the first day of this blog, June 26th, 2007 to be exact.

Eight years to the day I’ve been running this site. Here’s too eight more. Thank you all for the support. I wish I had better news, but you know, if things get going the way they are and people keep getting angry the way they are, I predict eight years from now we will be in a much better place. Either that or we’ll all be in re-education camps someplace. But hey, it’s ‘camp”. They will have bows and arrows and canoes and crap like that, right? Meatballs? It’ll be fun, right? So keep your heads up. :)
