Hospital Stay UPDATE: “We Live”

by Scott Creighton

Hi all.

Yes, I am back from the hospital. They took good care of me and hopefully my clotting ratio will be within a therapeutic range from here on out.

“malterwitty” posted by article “9/11 Shock Opera… Act 4 – Building 7 and Flight 93: The Grand Finale that Wasn’t” on What Really Happened so I expect a few conversations about that today. Published on May 25, 2009 it’s still one of the best pieces of analysis I’ve written on the subject so if you haven’t had a chance to read it, you should check it out.

I want to thank you all for the kind words of support you left on the earlier hospitalization article. Though I wasn’t able to reply from the hospital, I could read them on my cell phone and they were very encouraging.

I also wish to thank Jan10. Poor thing had to hobble around my house and look after all the four-legged critters running around this zoo which is no small feat.

I will be back at it today sometime a little later (it’s 3am eastern). Seems like yesterday was a kind of a slow news day anyway, unless of course you think of Donald Trump’s kids killing animals and hip-hop “beefs” as “news”

Back to the Hospital

by Scott Creighton

Hi folks. A situation has been developing over the last few hours and I just received word I am heading back to the hospital for a few days. It’s nothing serious, they just have to get my INR therapeutic so it may be a couple of days I am away from the computer. Sorry about that. I will still be able to post comments via my phone so I will still be around. I’ll let you know when I am back. Send some love Jan10’s way, she’s having to relocate temporarily in order to watch over my furry family for me. You guys take care and I will see you soon.


Russia Vetoes Creation of UNSC Flight MH17 Kangaroo Tribunal

by Scott Creighton

Earlier this month, Malaysia introduced a request at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for the formulation of an official tribunal which would “investigate” the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 and then “prosecute and punish those found responsible

Joining Malaysia in this request were four countries: the Netherlands (NATO), Ukraine, Australia and Belgium (NATO). The United States quietly supported the action from behind the scenes.

The resolution was brought up yesterday in the Security Council and the final vote was 11-1 with Russia voting against the measure, thus vetoing it. China, Angola and Venezuela abstained.

It should be noted:

The State Department on Monday took Malaysia off a list of countries with particularly egregious human trafficking records, clearing the path for the country’s participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, one of the top political priorities for the Obama administration.” The Intercept

Noam Chomsky on the Iranian Deal (video) and My Comments

by Scott Creighton

In this first video, it seems hard for Noam Chomsky to get his point across to al Jazeera’s Antonio Mora. That’s because it’s next to impossible for someone to learn something if their paycheck depends on them not learning it as is the case with Mr. Mora. And no, al Jazeera isn’t the truth-telling outlet they once were when they were the only news agency reporting on the Egyptian revolution back in 2011.

And here’s my take on this:

The Next Phase For The Push Into Syria Is Now Taking Place – Episode 727

(One thing he doesn’t seem to understand, taking this “safe zone” and using it as part of the new Kurdistan. That’s the plan. Not “giving it to Turkey” as he suggests.)

West Flirts With Fascism – Again

by Finian Cunningham, from Sputinik International

There seems little doubt that Western so-called democracies are gravitating toward increasingly autocratic politics. Executive power is being exercised by secret policy formulation, to be imposed on the electorate, or on other countries, with no regard for democratic oversight.

Western states are once again flirting with fascism – as in earlier dark periods over the past century.

Here is a recent snapshot of the disturbing trend. Britain’s Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond this week openly voiced his frustration with democratic process as something that is “cumbersome” for the pursuit of foreign military objectives.

Meanwhile, America’s top General Wesley Clark told US media that Washington needs the power to round up “disloyal” citizens in internment camps without due legal process.

Added to this is the condemnation also this week by France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius of a French parliamentary delegation travelling to Russia on a fact-finding visit over the Ukraine crisis.

Then we have the ongoing diktat to the Greek people of their country’s financial policies, imposed by the European Union’s creditors led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

In each instance we see a sinister logic emboldened among Western states, whereby democratic mandate and legal standards are over-ridden by the ruling political class. What other way to describe this tendency but as a form of incipient fascism?
