Israeli Military Conducts Another Successful Operation Against More Unarmed People

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: And now… Israel Cracks Down on Children’s Theater… yes, children’s theater folks.

———

When it comes to defending the Jewish State against unarmed civilians or peace activists, the Israeli military stands at the top of the dung heap in not only their ability to mount such operations but also in their skill to spin them afterward as “heroic”.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement congratulating troops for seizing the ship he said was involved in “a demonstration of hypocrisy” and support for Hamas, and said Israel’s actions were in accordance with international law. Reuters

Rushing out to deliver his statement, Bibi was full of pride this morning. His devoted army of Jews went forward in the night with all the technology ‘Merika! could give them and put it all to use against this band of murderous thugs.

Pro-Palestinian activists aboard one of the boats.

What Bibi should have said was:

“Not since Kent State have so many heavily armed men taught such a valuable lesson to so few unarmed peaceniks!”

That at least would have been a bit more honest and in keeping with the spirit of the moment.

Israel Readies for Another Mavi Marmara Massacre With A Nice Propaganda Letter as a Parting Gift

by Scott Creighton

According to Israeli Ynetnews, Israel’s Navy is preparing to use commandos to hijack 4 ships that are making an attempt to run the illegal blockade of Gaza. Their intention is to intercept the 4 vessels of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla 3 at sea, presumably in international waters, board the vessels with their commandos in the early hours of the morning and then transport all the activists and ship’s staff to Israel where they will be interrogated and eventually released.

If that sounds an awful lot like what the IDF did to the Mavi Marmara, part of the original Freedom Flotilla, it’s ok. It should. Because that is exactly what they did to them. Oh well, that and they executed a couple of them while they were at it.

Paul Krugman’s apologia for Obamacare

from WSWS

The US Supreme Court voted Thursday to uphold a key provision of the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration’s pro-business health care overhaul that cuts Medicare and fines households for being too poor to afford health insurance.

New York Times commentator Paul Krugman, a liberal apologist for the White House’s uniformly right-wing policies, responded to the Supreme Court’s decision by penning an op-ed column praising the legislation commonly known as Obamacare.

Krugman’s column, headlined “Hooray for Obamacare,” consists of one cynical lie after another aimed at convincing the public that Obama’s right-wing health care overhaul is an historic achievement for low-income Americans

Economic Terrorism Being Waged Against Greek People Prior to Austerity Referendum

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Here is rock-star Yanis Varoufakis’ explanation of what happened and how they came to this referendum decision. He claims that Syriza didn’t have a “mandate” from the people of Greece to make a decision in this case because only 37% of the people voted for them. By that standard I guess Obama doesn’t have any mandates either. He puts forward the question “Can democracy and a monetary union coexist? Or must one give way?”

For the record he claims his Syriza buddies all oppose the deal but he firmly believes after enough terrorism from the banks, the people of Greece will eventually vote for austerity. Brutal austerity. The likes of which the Greek people haven’t even dreamed of yet.

UPDATE: As I suspected, a bank holiday has already been declared according to this source. Banks to remain closed until they can blackmail the Greek people into voting for austerity.

Just so you know, if they get away with this shit in Greece, they will do it here soon after. Iceland got it right. They arrested the bastards before letting them get to this stage.

The fake-left Syriza government of Greece is pulling a fast one. Or trying to anyway.

Negotiations with the masters of the universe (the EU, the IMF and the ECB ) haven’t gone so well. According to Greek Labor Minister Dimitris Stratoulis, the EU’s demands are a “complete humiliation” for Syriza and the “enslavement and extermination of the Greek people”.

After offering deeper austerity measures to his masters which turned out to be not brutal enough for their liking, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras returned to Athens (birthplace of democracy) with his tail between his legs and a new plan: let’s let the people decide.

Confederate Flag Strategy of Tension Campaign Gets it’s Saddam Statue Moment

it’s the moneyshot

Yet another wannbe star has offered up yet another dramatic, made for TV “Saddam Statue” moment, like “Redneck Dixon White” did with his ridiculous “I was a racist Cuban-American theater student in high school” videos.

Her name is Bree Newsome, a self-described “Writer – Director – Producer-Singer – Songwriter-Activist – Consultant – Speaker“, and this morning she pulled a hearts and minds target of opportunity stunt in South Carolina by climbing a flag pole and removing a confederate battle flag that was flying on it.

The Strange Story of Dr. Bradstreet, SB277, the FDA and the Struggle Against Mandatory Vaccinations

by Scott Creighton

On June 19th, the Rutherford County sheriff’s office received a report from a fisherman who said he spotted a body floating in the Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock, N.C.

The body was later identified as that of Dr. James Jeffrey Bradstreet of Braselton, Georgia.

The body displayed a single gunshot wound to the chest and divers later recovered a pistol from the river.

Officials immediately declared it “appears to be” a suicide but their investigation continues.

This information, reported by Fox Carolina, is just about the sum total of coverage Dr. Bradstreet’s death has received from the so-called “legitimate press”

Let me see if I got this right: a working doctor taking care of patients with autism, which his son also suffers from, decides to kill himself so he travels a hundred miles to some obscure little river in North Carolina where he somehow manages to shoot himself in the chest in a deep enough part of the river that it requires divers to locate the gun that drops out of his hand when he pulls the trigger. Did he swim out there and shoot himself? Was he in a canoe which disappeared after the fact? Did he wade out in the river and shoot himself and linger long enough to toss the weapon out in the deep water as he slumped to his death?

Does anyone think any of those possibilities wouldn’t be laughed out of court were the local sheriff’s office to present them as the official story of what happened to Dr. Bradstreet?

Or, does it make more sense that someone killed him and transported his body and the murder weapon to some lazy backwoods river a hundred miles away where a search for the missing doctor would never reach and then dumped his body and the murder weapon in such a shoddy way that it resurfaced and was found by some fisherman?

I guess a little more information on Dr. Bradstreet is required at this point. If someone is going to suggest a murder and subsequent cover-up, then one must first examine the potential presence of motive and in this case, the motive might very well be a big one.

Neoliberal News of the Day – June 26, 2015

by Scott Creighton

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.  :)
