Trump Continues With Obama’s Greater Kurdistan Project: He’s Bombing Bridges and Water Lines in Raqqa for the Kurds

by Scott Creighton

Condi Rice’s “New Middle East” isn’t dead yet. The election of a candidate who promised to leave other countries alone to find their own fate has not thwarted their plans in the slightest, I’m sorry too say.

“Donald Trump campaigned on an “antiwar” platform vis-a-vis Syria and it was the primary reason that many a revolutionary activist entertained his many, MANY flaws and preferred his candidacy over the certifiably bloodthirsty Hillary Clinton. Well, without any further ado, that idea can be chucked out the window ’cause President Supercilious Orange, following up on his crime against humanity in Yemen’s Al-Bayda, committed unspeakable atrocities in Syria just a few days ago. On February 3rd, American warplanes, continuing to illegally fly in Syrian airspace without Syrian approval, carried out several sorties over ISIS’s de facto capital of Raqqa. But it wasn’t the Daeshi terrorists who were targeted. Instead, what the US ZOG bombed were the new and old bridges of Raqqa City, key outlets that allowed at least handfuls of Syrians to escape the barbaric Takfiri hell that the northern Syrian province had become, as well as the bridges of Al-Kalta and Al-Abbara in Raqqa’s northern countryside.” Jonathan Azaziah

Trump did indeed campaign on an anti-interventionist platform which is one of the reasons the complict MSM hated him so much. But then again, so did “W” and ObamaGod before him.

“Air strikes on Friday in Raqqa hit two bridges over the Euphrates river, hindering movement from the city southwards and killing six IS militants, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

U.S. support for the SDF has been a point of tension with NATO ally Turkey, which views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a group that has fought a three-decade insurgency in Turkey.” Reuters

Raqqa is located on the east bank of the Euphrates river. For some, that river is quickly becoming the border between Syria and “Rojava” or the “Western Kurdistan” part of Greater Kurdistan.

South Kurdistan is the stolen part of Iraq. “Northern Kurdistan” will be hacked out of Turkey (that plan is already underway). And “Eastern Kurdistan” will be the last piece, chopped from a segment of what is currently known as Iran today.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the Greater Kurdistan project and that is why no matter how many times they seem to have failed in Syria, they keep going on and on with their murder and destabilization like a Nazi Energizer Bunny on Meth.

Billionaire Religious Fanatic Public School Privatizer Betsy DeVos Becomes Trump’s Sec. of Education

by Scott Creighton

devos

the mask of the free market sociopath

I have written about this neoliberalization crap all day long for almost a decade now and as it unfolds it still makes me as sick as the first day I figured out what these fascist bastards were really up to.

Trump’s VP, Pence, had to step in and break the tie vote in the senate and so the billionaire privatizer who’s married to the Amway pyramid scheme fortune and the sister of Eric Prince (former owner of Blackwater and a guy looking forward to when he can cash in on the new Phoenix Program right here in America) is now your Secretary of Education.

Her goal, now that her cover is blown, will be to privatize as much of the Department of Education as she can, making billions in profits for her colleagues in the charter business while cheating at least a generation of young poor Americans out of their education.

Gov. Martinez of New Mexico can’t wait to help the “brave reformer” DeVos chop up public education on behalf of a couple billionaire oligarchs.

This isn’t about conservative verses liberal ideology. This is about bringing Milton Friedman’s economic brick to America and watching the Miracle of Chile being imposed on us in slow motion. School for profit ideology is sickening just like running prisons for profit or police for profit or wars for profit. It is all the same. And it sickens me.

Donald Trump has done a lot of things already that make me proud to have refused to vote for him. This tops the list thus far.  Makes you kinda wonder what he has up his sleeve next, doesn’t it?

The Trumpening: Exxon Officially Takes Over State Department – Tillerson Confirmed by Senate

by Scott Creighton

The vote was 56 to 43. All the Republicans voted for Trump’s Big Oil pick, Rex Tillerson, to become the next Secretary of Get-Dat-OIL!

Three unDems voted with the reTHUGlicans and one decided to hide under his desk. You can see how they voted here, if you are so inclined.

You can go here to see how all the senators voted for all the nominations so far.

Tim Kaine, Hillary’s VP pick, voted against only ONE of Trump’s neoliberal cabinet appointments. Tillerson.

Trump Frees the Markets’ Bladder by Unleashing the DAPL (a company he or may not still be invested in)

by Scott Creighton

The Donald signed an executive order yesterday, one of many that promises to free the glorious markets and let loose the invisible hand of Big Business, in this case Big Oil, so it can bitch-slap anyone who happens to get in it’s way (or live in its way as it turns out)

President Trump signed executive orders Tuesday to revive the controversial Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines, another step in his effort to dismantle former president Barack Obama’s environmental legacy.

He also signed an executive order to expedite environmental reviews of other infrastructure projects, lamenting the existing “incredibly cumbersome, long, horrible permitting process (pipelines are considered part of our “critical infrastructure”).” Washington Post

Native Americans, protesters and anyone else who gives a shit about individual rights, clean drinking water, environmental protection and stuff like that are a bit perturbed by President Populist’s apparent sycophancy to America’s established interests.

One can hardly blame him though seeing as how the future of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) may directly affect the president’s stock portfolio.

The Glorious Free Market to TRUMP Net Neutrality: Trump Picks Ajit Pai to Head FCC

(Oh. Did they fail to mention Pai was appointed to the board in 2012 by the fake progressive president, Barack Obama? Pai wrote a letter when Trump was elected stating he hoped that they could revisit Net Neutrality as soon as possible. Pai “voted against orders lowering the cost of cable boxes, advancing municipal broadband, lowering rates for prison phone calls, restricting data collection by ISPs, and so on.”)

“Pai vehemently objected to the FCC’s landmark Open Internet Order from February last year; his epic 67-page dissent statement takes issue with practically every aspect of it..” Tech Crunch

from LA Times

President Trump on Monday  designated Ajit Pai, a Republican member of the Federal Communications Commission and an outspoken opponent of new net neutrality rules (and former Associate General Counsel at Verizon Communications Inc), to be the agency’s new chairman.

Pai, 44, would take over for Tom Wheeler, a Democrat who stepped down on Friday. Wheeler’s term had not expired but Trump gets to designate a new chairman as Republicans gain the FCC majority.

“I look forward to working with the new administration, my colleagues at the commission, members of Congress, and the American public to bring the benefits of the digital age to all Americans,” Pai said.

A telecommunications lawyer who has served on the FCC since May 2012, Pai is a free-market advocate who has been sharply critical of new regulations adopted by Democrats in recent years.
