Breaking the Bad Habit of Interventionism

aa-America First shield good one The U.S. admittedly was an expansionist power in our own hemisphere during the 19th century, but it was otherwise careful not to interfere or take sides in other nations’ internal affairs. It was mainly just in the last seventy years that the U.S. took it upon itself to take an active role in internal conflicts elsewhere in the world, and then usually with disastrous results for the countries affected by this interference. That is what Americans have soured on over the last ten years, and it is what they will likely keep rejecting in the foreseeable future. Even if Americans have now become accustomed to meddling in the internal affairs of other nations, that is not something inherent in who we are as a nation. This is something that we have learned through steady repetition over decades. It is a bad habit that can and should be broken and replaced with one of non-interference. http://www.theamericanconservative.com/larison/breaking-the-bad-habit-of-interventionism/

Nuclear War is Solution to Problems of Old Age

aa-World War III Throughout the West, there is a demographic crisis. Baby boomers are aging and “a shrinking pool of young people will have to finance their pensions.” Almost a third of Americans have not saved a dime for retirement. Then there’s the strain on the healthcare system. I certainly wasn’t looking forward to watching my body break down and die. http://henrymakow.com/2014/08/nuclear-war-is-solution-to.html

U.S. Hikes Fee to Renounce Citizenship by 422%

aa-expatriate Over the last two years, the U.S. has had a spike in expatriations. It isn’t exactly Ellis Island in reverse, but it’s more than a dribble. With global tax reporting and FATCA, the list of the individuals who renounced is up. For 2013, there was a 221% increase, with record numbers of Americans renouncing. The Treasury Department is required to publish a quarterly list, but these numbers are under-stated, some say considerably. http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertwood/2014/08/28/u-s-hikes-fee-to-renounce-citizenship-by-422/

The Week That Perished

aa-free speech - blocked If you ever doubted that the concept of “hate speech” was designed primarily to prevent any criticism of the government, cast your doubts into the ocean. The federal government has allocated nearly $1 million to Indiana University to track “misinformation” and “false and misleading ideas” on twitter.com, which is currently the world’s seventh most heavily trafficked site. The database is named “Truthy”—a reference to liberal comedian Stephen Colbert’s routine about Republican fact-mangling. According to the Truthy website: We also plan to use Truthy to detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution…we rely on users like you to flag injections of forged grass-roots activity. Therefore, click on the Truthy button when you see a suspicious meme! “Social pollution.” Why, that sounds downright Soviet! According to the university’s grant: “If you ever doubted that the concept of “hate speech” was designed primarily to prevent any criticism of the government, cast your doubts into the ocean.” This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate. OK, so it’s going to encourage “open debate” while urging users to snitch on anything they deem to be “hate speech” and/or “subversive propaganda”? Got it. Doublethink mode is on full blast here. Why not simply call it the Ministry of Truth? http://takimag.com/article/the_week_that_perished_takimag_august_30_2014/print#axzz3BtSfPRaq

Behind the Surge from Guatemala

TO GO WITH AFP STORY: MEXICO-MIGRATION - An eye-opening account of Central American dystopia. David Stoll, El Norte or Bust!, Rowman & Littlefield, 2013, 281 pp., $32.95. Why are all those unaccompanied minors coming here from Central America? El Norte or Bust! is an eye-opening–even astonishing–account of how indigenous Guatemalans live, why they come north, and what happens when they do. It was written before the latest wave of minors, but casts a pitiless light on the motives and methods of Central American peasants who take huge risks to get into the United States. The author, David Stoll, is a far-far-left anthropologist at Middlebury College in Vermont. He would love to think of indigenous Guatemalans as noble creatures, faithful to ancient Mayan traditions, but he is too honest to paint them in false colors. These people are materialistic primitives, both gullible and exploitative, who treat women like cattle, and are incapable of building a modern society. Studying their antics may be great fun for academics, but these are obviously not people we want in our country. http://www.amren.com/features/2014/08/behind-the-surge-from-guatemala/#.VAHJYdUp0j4.email

The War for Nothing

On the Palestinian side: 2,143 dead, 577 of them children, 263 women, 102 elderly. 11,230 injured. 10,800 buildings destroyed. 8,000 partially destroyed. About 40,000 damaged homes. Among the damaged buildings: 277 schools, 10 hospitals, 70 mosques, 2 churches. Also, 12 West Bank demonstrators, mostly children, who were shot. So what was it all about? The honest answer is: About nothing. http://original.antiwar.com/avnery/2014/08/29/the-war-for-nothing/#.VAHMpbwGQro.email

Fifty Shades of Interracial Underage Rape

aa-Rotherham horror Yes, we might have a few show trials and resignations, and the nanny state may be greatly expanded around the vulnerable nether regions of English urban girlhood, but we’ll still have fast-growing and increasingly assertive Muslims populations in the West, constantly reinforced by fresh waves from the disintegrating Middle East. And we’ll still have White people trying to do the “right thing” (a.k.a the thumbed-up thing) and unwittingly helping the menace to grow. Our way in the West, when we encounter a fire like Rotherham – or Ferguson – is to throw a few drops of water at it, followed by countless gallons of gasoline. While it is cathartic, self-affirming, and emotionally rewarding, to jump aboard the great moral bandwagon that this case has let slip the brakes on, there are disturbing undertones and futile aspects as well, the main one being that, having won the lottery with a case that has the potential to fundamentally change and save England, the sudden windfall will be wasted once again in a mass festival of moral wankery and ineffectual reform. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/08/fifty-shades-of-interracial-underage.html

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie

aa-government - lies good one The mountain of lies piled up by Western governments and media has obscured the true story. The US government orchestrated the overthrow of the elected government in Ukraine and imposed a US puppet in Kiev. Washington’s puppet government began issuing threats and committing violent acts against the Russian populations in the former Russian territories that Soviet leaders attached to Ukraine. The Russian people in eastern and southern Ukraine resisted the threat brought to them by Washington’s puppet government in Kiev. Washington continually accuses the Russian government of supporting the people in the territories who have voted their separation from Ukraine. There would be no war, Washington alleges, except for Russian support. But, of course, Washington could easily stop the violence by ordering its puppet government in Kiev to stop the bombing and shelling of the former Russian provinces. If Russia can tell the “separatists” not to fight, Washington can tell Kiev not to fight. The only possible conclusion from the facts is that Washington is determined to involve Europe in a war with Russia or at least in an armed standoff in order to break up Europe’s political and economic relations with Russia. Europe’s leaders are going along with this because European countries, except for Charles de Gaulle’s France, have not had independent foreign policies since the end of World War II. They follow Washington’s lead and are well paid for doing so. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/28/washington-piles-lie-upon-lie-paul-craig-roberts/

Why Artifice Rules the World: We Have No Choice

aa-bubble - being pricked The primary tool of increasing prosperity is the expansion of asset bubbles that supposedly boost the wealth effect, an internalized belief that one is wealthier. This internal belief is presumed to encourage more borrowing and spending which is then presumed to lift all boats in the economy. This is of course all artifice: the elaborately choreographed applications to the Ivy League, the massaged statistics designed to manage our perceptions of reality rather than address reality itself, and the selling of free money for financiers as a policy that magically helps everyone, even those far from the money spigots of the Federal Reserve. How did we arrive at a systemic dependence on contrivance and artifice to manage problems? We have no choice. Why do we have no choice? Because any attempt to actually fix dysfunctional systems necessarily steps on the toes of deeply entrenched vested interests that profit from the dysfunctional Status Quo– interests who will devote every resource in their command to water down, co-opt, divert or defeat any reforms that lessen their share of the national income or their political power. As a result, true reform of hopelessly dysfunctional systems is politically impossible. http://www.oftwominds.com/blogaug14/artifice8-14.html

Congressman: ‘Americans Should Learn Spanish’

aa-immigration - obamagration good one Mimicking a controversial remark by candidate Barack Obama at a 2008 campaign rally, a Texas congressman surveying the current border crisis, which he blames on White House policies, quipped, “Americans should learn Spanish.” Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, in an interview at the border at McAllen, Texas, was referring to Obama’s admonition at a rally July 8, 2008, in Powder Springs, Georgia, which began in the context of his objection to requiring English to be the official language in the United States. “Instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English, you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish,” Obama said at the time. Stockman is concerned Obama’s open-border policies, which have enticed a flood of unaccompanied illegal alien children to come to the border, are intended to push the United States toward a tipping point demographically. http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/congressman-americans-should-learn-spanish/#pmbBxChhoI9GS5wO.03

Black Subversives Explode Over ‘Racist’ Help for Ferguson Cop

aa-race card A group founded by former Obama aide Van Jones and former MoveOn.org activist James Rucker is calling on the Internet fundraising platform GoFundMe.com to take down its “Support Officer Darren Wilson” page, accusing the company of “profiting from racially motivated donors.” The Color of Change, founded by Jones and Rucker in 2005 to “strengthen the political voice of Black America,” says on its website that donors to Officer Wilson are “celebrating Michael Brown’s death” and that GoFundMe should take down the police officer’s fundraising page and return any profits it has generated. The fundraising campaign for Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson has exploded over the past nine days, raising more than $234,000 in the original GoFundMe page, as first reported Aug. 19 by WND. Now Wilson’s supporters have started a second page raising more than $176,000 in six days from nearly 4,000 donors, with the goal of reaching $250,000. http://www.amren.com/news/2014/08/black-activists-explode-over-racist-help-for-ferguson-cop/#.VACIdX5WQ5o.email

Pakistani Sex Gangs and the Stephen Lawrence Effect

aa-paki muslim gang The latest case to emerge of sexual grooming and abuse by Pakistani gangs committed against English children in the Northern town of Rotherham has finally pushed the issue to national breakthrough and media saturation level, but in essence this is nothing new. It is only the magnitude – 1,400 victims (conservative estimate) in a town of a quarter of a million over 16 years – that is different. It is a horrifying thought, but if the entire UK were like Rotherham, we could project a national total of 336,000 child sex abuse victims. Thankfully, not the whole of the country is cursed with Pakistani immigrant communities. But as big and newsworthy as this case is, it is just the same old story of ethnic crimes and misdemeanours being green lighted, downplayed, or soft pedalled for fears of someone being called a “racist” somewhere, sometime. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/08/pakistani-sex-gangs-and-stephen.html

Bombs Away Over Syria! Washington Has Gone Stark Raving Mad

aa-Obama - crazy look Is any more evidence needed that Washington has gone stark raving mad than even the possibility that such an absurd option could be under consideration? Has not the imperial city on the Potomac become so inured to its pretensions of global hegemony and to instant resort to deployment of its war machine that any semblance of rationality and coherence has been dissolved? Indeed, in the context of Syria’s fractured and riven tribal, religious and political splinters how could anyone in their right mind think that a bombing campaign without boots on the ground will accomplish anything other than function as a potent recruiting tool for ISIS, and a generator of jihadist blowback for years to come. By the same token, the White House’s polling machine surely documents that an outright Iraq-style invasion of the Islamic State is overwhelmingly opposed by the American people, and rightly so. Accordingly, the silly, hapless man in the Oval Office stumbles forward, apparently unaware that he’s not merely playing video games during his sojourns in the Situation Room. Indeed, the make-believe “nuanced” bombing options that are likely to be ground out by the national security machinery are destined to fail and drag Washington ever deeper into the violent cauldron of Mesopotamia and the Levant. The trillions of treasure wasted, the millions of lives lost and the venomous tribal enmities resulting from Washington’s misbegotten ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan provide all the proof that is needed. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/bombs-away-washington-has-gone-stark-raving-mad/

The Fun of Empire: Fighting on All Sides of a War in Syria

aa-Republicrats - two parties one ideology It was not even a year ago when we were bombarded with messaging that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is a Supreme Evil and Grave Threat, and that military action against his regime was both a moral and strategic imperative. The standard cast of “liberal interventionists” – Tony Blair, Anne-Marie Slaughter, Nicholas Kristof and Samantha Power – issued stirring sermons on the duties of war against Assad. Secretary of State John Kerry actually compared Assad to (guess who?) Hitler, instructing the nation that “this is our Munich moment.” Striking Assad, he argued, “is a matter of national security. It’s a matter of the credibility of the United States of America. It’s a matter of upholding the interests of our allies and friends in the region.” U.S. military action against the Assad regime was thwarted only by overwhelming American public opinion which opposed it and by a resounding rejection by the UK Parliament of Prime Minister David Cameron’s desire to assume the usual subservient British role in support of American wars. Now the Obama administration and American political class is celebrating the one-year anniversary of the failed “Bomb Assad!” campaign by starting a new campaign to bomb those fighting against Assad – the very same side the U.S. has been arming over the last two years. https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/08/26/fun-empire-fighting-sides-war/

Whatever yellow sheet journalist turned this out, he/she is trying to give the impression that there is a concert of approving voices for the august (dripping with gravitas) Holder. Not only is Holder a proven criminal, he is also a traitor to his country but then, so is everyone he works for too. Given what a fatuous prig he is, this strutting marionette is unlikely to bring much of anything to the table since his usual position is on his knees under the table.

How the Palestinians Won

APTOPIX Mideast Israel Palestinians In Israel, significantly, there were no celebrations. The ever-so-right-wing government of Benjamin Netanyahu had once more over-egged its victory demands and ended up with another ceasefire as strong and as weak as the equally febrile truce that followed the 2009 Gaza war and the 2012 Gaza war. Physically, the Israelis had won; all those broken lives and all those smashed buildings and all that destroyed infrastructure do not suggest that the Palestinians have “prevailed” (to use a “Bushite” word). But strategically, the Palestinians have won. They are still in Gaza, Hamas is still in Gaza, and the coalition government of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas appears still to be a reality. Many times has it been said that the founders of the Israeli state faced a problem: a land called Palestine. They dealt with that problem coldly, ruthlessly and efficiently. But now their problem is the Palestinians. Their land may have been taken for Israel, their surviving land may be eaten up by Israeli colonies; but the wretched Palestinians simply won’t go away. And killing them in large numbers – especially in front of the world’s television cameras – is getting to be a bit much, even for those who still shake in their boots at the mere whisper of the calumny “anti-Semitism”. Israeli spokesmen even ended up comparing their actions to bloody Second World War RAF air raids, hardly a propaganda strike in the 21st century. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/08/28/how-the-palestinians-won/

The Anti-Civilization of the West

aa-Western civilization - anti-civilization drawing In his book The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of the New World Order (1996) Samuel P. Huntington put forward the thesis, popular with large sections of the ‘Right,’ that the post-Cold-War world would be shaped by its major civilizations and their interactions. For some it was the gently coded recognition of race that appealed, for others it was the stigmatization of Islam as a rather unpleasant civilization that rang true, so that the book became, for better or worse, a landmark of political science. This makes it an ideal starting point for considering the topic of civilizations in general and the problematic nature of the West in particular. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-anti-civilization-of-west.html

Our ‘Enemies’ in Ukraine Speak

aa-Ukraine - 2-24-14 America’s ‘news’ media do not let the victims of Ukraine’s civil war — the people who are dying and being driven out from the southeastern regions of that country by the new Ukrainian Government — speak, and tell their story. Scenes will therefore be posted below from an admittedly overlong amateur video from southeastern Ukraine, in which they have been allowed to tell their story. This is being done here since U.S. ‘news’ media apparently don’t consider it something that you would want to know, and since you should be allowed to judge for yourself whether it is or not, and to judge why it’s not being reported on the ‘news’ sources that our ‘democracy’ offers to ‘inform’ America’s public about public affairs. Whatever it is, is mass-theft, combined with mass-murder, combined with a super-scandalous cover-up by all but a half-dozen ‘news’ media in the West (each of which has only a small audience), so that even almost all ‘alternative news’ sites are part of the cover-up. But this site, fortunately, isn’t. It’s one of the few that are honest. In fact, international aristocrats are raping our entire planet with impunity (such as by owning ‘news’ media and politicians), and are ‘trophy hunting’ and otherwise slaughtering not only rare species of animals, but also the human residents of southeastern Ukraine. To ‘bag’ a human or an expensive animal of any species is especially status-confirming to them. Their impunity is the mark of their ‘superiority’: Only they can commit crimes with impunity; so, the bigger the crime, the bigger the thrill it is for them. http://rinf.com/alt-news/editorials/enemies-ukraine-speak/

Cautious Outrage

aa-Dees - drone attack We Westerners have a charming and quaint belief that killing people from the air by using bombs, rockets, shells, napalm and cluster munitions – or even nuclear weapons – is somehow not really as bad as ramming a bayonet into an enemy, blowing him to pieces with heavy artillery, or slashing his throat the way sheep are killed. Air warfare is clean … On the same day Foley was allegedly being decapitated, 19 people in Saudi Arabia, a close US ally, were publicly beheaded for various crimes. One of the men was executed for witchcraft. There was no outcry at all over this medieval horror … Look at the horrifying pictures of victims from Gaza: babies with heads blow open and bodies torn into pieces by heavy 155mm shells. What’s the difference between this and a decapitation? http://ericmargolis.com/2014/08/cautious-outrage/

When Local Police Become a ‘Standing Army’

aa-police state - video game still In a free society, police officers are more likely to be viewed as friends whose purpose is “to protect and serve” their fellow citizens. Their numbers are few and their firepower and other means of enforcement are not so immense and intimidating as to cow and overawe the local citizenry, from whom, ultimately, they receive their authority — and their paychecks. In an authoritarian or totalitarian society, on the other hand, police officers are viewed with fear and suspicion as agents of a despotic central government, vested with the authority and means to deprive the hapless citizenry of life, property, and liberty at whim. In many countries, the police force is a ubiquitous, nationalized gendarmerie that is indistinguishable from the military establishment, of which it is, in many cases, merely a subsidiary. As the number of U.S. troop-heavy foreign interventions decreases, the warcraft and weaponry used in battle are now being deployed in American neighborhoods as the members, machines, and methods of law enforcement become increasingly indistinguishable from those of the military. http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/18982-when-local-police-become-a-standing-army

As AP reports, it appears Syrian airstrikes are on their way, but there’s a mind-blowing twist in US foreign policy: “In an effort to avoid unintentionally strengthening the Syrian government, the White House could seek to balance strikes against the Islamic State with attacks on Assad regime targets.” In the words of the Guinness commercial, Brilliant. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-26/wtf-white-house-statement-day-syria-airstrikes-edition

The Real Black Sheep

aa-black - super low pants The word “urban” effortlessly became the new “black” sometime in the 1980s. If it’s really just a euphemistic code-word invented by whitey, that doesn’t explain why blacks themselves have so eagerly embraced it. “Black hostility toward Condoleezza Rice and Clarence Thomas has almost as much to do with her virtuosity at classical piano and his passion for RV travel than with the R after their names.” As that annoying adjective makes clear, blacks fairly boast of their hatred for nature. Their comedy routines are larded with gags about their aversion to camping and swimming. Before Tiger Woods (who, remember, isn’t 100% black) and Obama (who isn’t either), golf — with all that grass -— was nothing more than a Richard Pryor punch line. Now expand this Amish-like orthodoxy to include every aspect of life—education, sex, parenting, music, food, clothing, work, crime—and you get a picture of an African-American culture that is, ironically, more suffocatingly conformist than white America (supposedly) was in the “boring/evil” “Organization Man”/Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1950s. http://takimag.com/article/the_real_black_sheep_kathy_shaidle/print#axzz3BbZi7iNK

Gratitude

aa-black friday crowd I have mixed feelings about this post. But I’m just going to report the facts as I observed them. Every year, the local Kiwanis Clubs team together with the Salvation Army and Walmart to host a Back to School fair for underprivileged kids in the area. There’s snacks and bouncy houses, a vaccination booth (don’t get me started here), and each child receives a backpack, lunch box (don’t know why since they all get free lunches), and all the recommended supplies. This year, they prepared 5000 backpacks. 5000. Backpacks. Full of stuff. Free. And they ran out with a considerable number of kids still left. So they issued vouchers to Walmart for the same items that were being offered at the fair. One $10 backpack, one $5 lunch box, paper, pens, pencils, RoseArt markers and crayons, binders and notebooks. Probably about $70 total. Not a bad deal, especially when you consider most of the recipient families have two or more (many more) kids. Take my next door neighbors, four kids all anchor babies, mom and dad don’t speak English, would have received $280 worth of free school supplies. Now, I’m extremely charitable, I’ll give the shirt off my back and the last buck in my pocket to someone who really needs it. And I don’t expect drippy gratitude, a “Hey, thanks!” is good enough. But when I give someone something, the last thing I expect is hostility. And that’s just a small fraction of what I witnessed at Walmart this morning. http://www.theburningplatform.com/2014/08/26/gratitude/

Anti-Semitism is Zionism’s Bread and Butter

aa-Gaza - massive destruction Mercifully, Zionist terrorists have reached a ceasefire with Hamas wherebythe Jewish terrorist state will supposedly relax its blockage of the Palestinian enclave. I doubt whether public opinion had much to do with this.Historically, Zionists have thrived on anti-Semitism, to the extent that they actively organized it. Now, with ISIS and “terrorism,” they are using the same tactics to frighten and manipulate Westerners. http://henrymakow.com/anti-semitism_is_the_bread_and.html

JUDEO-BARBARIANISM SURVIVES ON THE ANTI-SEMITISM HOAX. The great Henry Makow is right as usual. Except I would say most "anti-semitism" is not really there--it is just a hoax and a scam to cover up the crimes of the criminal cult called Judaism.

The U.S. Self-Checkmate

aa-war crimes The Muslim World loathes the U.S. for all the secret, totalitarian, imperialist, murderous, insane things it does to the Muslim World every day over vast regions from Palestine and North Africa to murdering Muslim women and children eating breakfast in their homes with Helfire Missiles from Somalia to Yemen to Afghanistan and Pakistan and… The basic rule of all effective winning of the peace, nation building, and selling lemonade on the street corner is YOU MUST WIN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE PEOPLE. Since Muslims now must secretly loathe the Great Satan, as the U.S. is often called, and totally distrust everything it does, and reasonably assume it is to destroy Muslims, when the U.S. does anything in their World they see it as evil, no matter how bright and shiny it looks on the surface. The U.S. assumes absolutely that whatever it does is perfectly good and Godly, so it is, or pretends to be, totally blind to this simple, obvious pattern and its primary cause. No matter what the U.S. does in a major way in the Muslim World, the results are awful for the U.S. and almost everyone else in the long run, because the U.S. is operating in a vast and complex ocean it has poisoned totally and anyone who gets in it gets poisoned sooner or later. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/08/jack-d-douglas/the-us-self-checkmate/

A Momentous September: The Price Discovery Mechanism is Also Moving From West to East With the Metals

aa-gold - huge block of gold The Shanghai Gold Exchange will be opening up bullion trading to international investors on September 26. China is striving hard to internationalize their currency, and as well, remove the pricing privilege in markets which the West has monopolized so far. This is a very bold move, and part of their larger plan to make China a bullion-trading hub. Since their objective is also to internationalize the Yuan, trading will be settled in Yuan and not dollars, which of course, is another small nail in the dollar coffin. The exchange will be serviced by a 1,500 metric ton vault, which is very impressive, indeed. As if that wasn’t big enough, the Singapore Exchange Ltd. (SGX) will also be opening up a 25 KG kilobar contract to be traded. These Asian trading platforms will not be as opaque as Western platforms, and will be physically backed, so we believe that this will indeed be the future of international precious metals trading. This is concrete proof that not only is the West’s gold and silver moving East; their ability to manage prices is also slipping right from under their eyes. September is shaping up to be a very eventful and historic month, even if we do not see any great changes in price action. http://www.silverdoctors.com/a-momentous-september-the-price-discovery-mechanism-is-also-moving-from-west-to-east-with-the-metals/

Murder by Cherry-Picking

aa-American Empire - shining city on a hill The telling of history is not about truth but about myth-making, the construction of saints and devils. By and large, history is an exercise in guilt-projection by the victors. It appears that winning isn’t ever good enough for them—they have to justify their naked power and superior killing skills by smearing the losers as pure evil. You may have noticed that estimated death tolls in any settled conflict vary absurdly depending on whether the winner or loser is tallying them. The victors cherry-pick facts to prop up their own moral narrative, because for most people, that’s more important than the truth. But when you pull back and get the merest whiff of perspective, you realize that there are no good guys and bad guys, only competing animals locked in an evolutionary struggle. Peeling away the moralistic shellac is the only way that history makes sense. Sadly, most human beings are immune to sense. This is why they pick only certain cherries and leave the others to rot. http://takimag.com/article/murder_by_cherry_picking_jim_goad/print#axzz3BQ8NIZaC

We Now Have Scientific Proof That People Are Getting Stupider

aa-movie - Idiocracy Are people dumber than they used to be? Were previous generations mentally sharper than us? You may have suspected that people are getting stupider for quite some time, but now we actually have scientific evidence that this is the case. As you will read about below, average IQs are dropping all over the globe, SAT scores in the U.S. have been declining for decades, and scientists have even discovered that our brains have been getting smaller over time. So if it seems on some days like you woke up in the middle of the movie “Idiocracy”, you might not be too far off. Much of the stuff that they put in our junk food is not good for brain development, our education system is a total joke and most Americans are absolutely addicted to mindless entertainment. Fortunately we have a lot of technology that does much of our thinking for us these days, because if we had to depend on our own mental capabilities most of us would be in a tremendous amount of trouble. http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/we-now-have-scientific-proof-that-people-are-getting-stupider

War Always Comes Home

aa-police - half cop half military good one Benjamin Franklin is often quoted as saying that “nothing is certain but death and taxes”. But he can actually add one more certainty to that list. “War always comes home”. While people who start wars rarely think about it or plan for it, war always comes home. After World War II and the Korean War, thousands of American soldiers came home with PTSD and other physical and mental wounds of war. Unfortunately they never received the treatment and help that they needed. After Vietnam the American soldiers came home with PTSD, while also carrying home diseases thanks to exposure to agent orange. Heroin addiction was also rampant. Today that exposure to agent orange in Vietnam is still being felt, as is the heroin addiction. After the first Gulf War, American soldiers came home with high levels of depleted uranium in their blood, and they had children who were born with debilitating birth defects. Which brings us to today. http://www.ingeniouspress.com/2014/08/21/big-picture-war-always-comes-home/

Top Ten Warning Signs of Liberal Imperialism

aa-liberalism ahead turn back now Are you a liberal imperialist? Liberal imperialists are like kinder, gentler neo-conservatives: Like ne-ocons, they believe it’s America’s responsibility to right political and humanitarian wrongs around the world, and they’re comfortable with the idea of the United States deciding who will run countries such as Libya, Syria, or Afghanistan. Unlike neo-cons, liberal imperialists embrace and support international institutions (like the United Nations), and they are driven more by concern for human rights than they are by blind nationalism or protecting the U.S.-Israel special relationship. Still, like the neo-cons, liberal imperialists are eager proponents for using American hard power, even in situations where it might easily do more harm than good. http://www.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2013/05/20/top_ten_warning_signs_of_liberal_imperialism

Dangerous Crossroads: U.S.-NATO to Deploy Ground Troops, Conduct Large Scale Naval Exercises Against ‘Unnamed Enemy’

aa-World War III Enabling legislation in the US Senate under “The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA) has “set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.” Any U.S.-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy. The Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) is the culmination of more than twenty years of U.S.-NATO war preparations, which consist in the military encirclement of both Russia and China: From the moment the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the United States has relentlessly pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran. It has brought 12 countries in central Europe, all of them formerly allied with Moscow, into the NATO alliance. U.S. military power is now directly on Russia’s borders. http://www.globalresearch.ca/dangerous-crossroads-us-nato-to-deploy-ground-troops-conduct-large-scale-naval-exercises-against-unnamed-enemy/5397415

Russia Asks if America is Still Fit to ‘Participate in Solving International Problems’

aa-American Empire - banana republic Yesterday it was China slamming America’s superpower status (and thus dollar reserve currency status). Now it is Russia’s turn, whose Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on Friday, following the UN’s delay in adopting a statement calling for a ceasefire in Ukraine after the US once again opposed Russia, which claimed among other things that “if the US opposes an absolutely non-confrontational, reconciliatory text, there can be no doubts that Washington intends to have the armed confrontation in Ukraine continued. It could be seen only as an attempt to ‘undermine’ the humanitarian mission.” A mission which Russia greenlighted despite stern US opposition, and also concluded without incident as we reported yesterday, when the convoy returned to Russia after a brief stay in east Ukraine. Moscow believes that such policy is hypocritical, the ministry added. Of course, if indeed the Ukraine economic crisis is the direct result of US and CIA meddling as the Victoria Nuland intercepted recording validates, then Russia has every right to such an opinion. The punchline: “Cynical disregard for the fate of civilians and ‘couldn’t care less’ attitude toward the international humanitarian law when it comes to geopolitical interests, becomes the core of the policy of the United States and its European satellites regarding Ukrainian,” the statement read. “More and more questions are being raised about the ability of the current U.S. administration to participate in the development of realistic and pragmatic approaches to international problems, to adequately assess the situation in the various regions of the world,” the Russia Foreign Ministry noted. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-24/russia-asks-if-america-still-fit-participate-solving-international-problems

Ferguson: The War Comes Home

aa-police - militarization of by Ron Paul. America’s attention recently turned away from the violence in Iraq and Gaza toward the violence in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting of Michael Brown. While all the facts surrounding the shooing have yet to come to light, the shock of seeing police using tear gas (a substance banned in warfare), and other military-style weapons against American citizens including journalists exercising their First Amendment rights, has started a much-needed debate on police militarization. The increasing use of military equipment by local police is a symptom of growing authoritarianism, not the cause. The cause is policies that encourage police to see Americans as enemies to subjugate, rather than as citizens to “protect and serve.” This attitude is on display not only in Ferguson, but in the police lockdown following the Boston Marathon bombing and in the Americans killed and injured in “no-knock” raids conducted by militarized SWAT teams. http://original.antiwar.com/paul/2014/08/24/ferguson-the-war-comes-home/#.U_s-Yu7WuNk.email

Senator Corker’s Path to Nuclear War

aa-democracy - coming to your neighborhood For a sane, rational person it is inexplicable how any government could think that prevailing over another country or countries is worth the risk of wiping out life. But for people determined to prevail, prevailing is everything. That is the problem we face. The neo-conservative ideology that history has given the U.S. the right to prevail over all others (except Israel) has created a fanaticism that since the Clinton regime has piled wars on top of wars and is now demonizing Russia, isolating Russia from the West, and building up military forces on Russia’s borders, while issuing ultimatums such as Bob Corker’s “Russian Aggression Prevention Act.” http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/23/guest-article-steven-starr-senator-corkers-path-nuclear-war/

Burn, Ferguson, Burn

aa-race - red ants attacking black ant We need to realize, but will not, that blacks are a separate people, self-aware and cohesive. They have their own dialect, music, and modes of dress, which they value. They name their kids LaToya and Keeshawn instead of Robert and Carol because they want to maintain a distance from whites. The races spring from utterly different cultures. Compulsory integration is thus a form of social imperialism in which whites try to force blacks to conform to European norms. Blacks have no historical connection at all to Greece, Rome, the Old Testament Hebrews, Christianity, the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, to Newton, LaGrange, or Galois, to the philosophic tradition of Thales, Aquinas, Schopenhauer, or Hegel. Nor do Eurowhites have roots in Africa. No commonality exists. http://www.fredoneverything.net/Ferguson.shtml

Understanding Ukraine in 15 Minutes

aa-American Empire - statue of liberty and military If you want to understand what is going on in Ukraine, then you need to watch this 15 minute video with Putin advisor and friend, Sergei Glaziev. Glaziev explains how structural changes in the global economy and a shift to Asia have precipitated a desperate attempt by U.S. policymakers to maintain their grip on power by instigating a war in Europe. Whether readers agree with this analysis or not, they will find Glaziev is brilliant, erudite and passionate in his beliefs. For that alone, the video is well worth the time. I transcribed the video myself, and apologize for any unintentional mistakes in the text.

From Ferguson to Ukraine

aa-Republicrats - Dees birds of prey So America has its lovable war-tyrant in Barak Obama. But it does not matter whether a Democrat or Republican tyrant is at the helm as the Oval Office can be counted on to represent the interests of the mighty who buttress the political duopoly. And they will go to any length to achieve their Kingdom on Earth whether it’s pounding protestors in Ferguson, Missouri or instigating the shoot-down of a civilian aircraft over Ukraine. They will lie, cheat and steal from the poor and give to the rich. They twist the US Constitution and Bill of Rights to suit their needs. American citizens get no special preference from the political duopoly: citizens are petty and in the way, just like any other threat from outside US borders. The relentless American campaign against Russia and the separatist rebels in Ukraine, and US support for military operations in Gaza, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and South Sudan, for example, is overseen by the same political duopoly that governs the US homeland. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/08/22/from-ferguson-to-ukraine/#.U_iW18qQLNY.email

Black Cop Kills Unarmed White Youth — Media and Feds Silent

aa-white genocide While Ferguson, Missouri, burns with racism and rioting, misinformation and mayhem over the Michael Brown shooting, another American city is also grappling with the death of an unarmed young man at the hands of police. The incident occurred just two days after the Ferguson event, but, unlike in that case, where a white cop shot a black youth, in this instance the races are reversed. Unlike in Ferguson, there is no allegation that the young man attacked the officer.

How Tyranny Arises

aa-1984 - freedumbville great one Gullible Americans have been trained to be fearful of crime, blacks, Muslims, terrorists, “domestic extremists,” and now Russia. These fears result in the public accepting illegal, unconstitutional, and immoral actions by police and government. With the passage of time the wrongful police and government behavior become institutionalized as the young are born into the system and know no different and the old who remember accountable government and liberty pass away. This is how liberty and freedom die, citizens become serfs, and the rise of tyranny is accomplished. The transformation of the US into a tyranny is far advanced. It is a revolution that owes its success to the gullibility, ignorance and unconcern of the majority of the American people and to a corrupt and cowardly national media that betrays liberty and fosters tyranny. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/22/tyranny-arises-paul-craig-roberts/

The IQ of Revolutions

aa-Dees - from 1950s to today excellent one The idea that the less intelligent groups are the most malleable and quiescent is demonstrably false; in fact, quite the reverse. If American history over the past 60 years has proved anything, it is that the population easiest to control is the reasonably intelligent one that is characteristic of mid-to-late-20th-century America – the one with a collective IQ of around 100. Could you have imposed the kind of existential changes on America on any other group with a different collective IQ? The answer would probably be ‘no’ in both directions. Both cleverer and stupider populations would not have put up with it. So, if it’s control the evil elites are after, why kill the goose that lays the golden eggs by moving the average IQ south of a hundred? http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-iq-of-revolutions.html

A Perspective on Ukraine from Europe

aa-chessboard - global The West’s power and influence is on the wane. It is clearly not in the interests of the long-standing members of the EU to escalate a sanctions and financial conflict with Russia. The European Central Bank will have almost certainly discussed contingency plans with the major regional central banks in the Eurozone, because the banking system might have to make available special credit and financing facilities, i.e. a rescue from a financial crisis if NATO goes much further down the sanctions route. This is why politicians are walking on eggshells, paying lip-service to America and the scared Eastern fringe members of NATO while hoping this goes no further. So long as this is the case it is clear that NATO members are powerless to stop Russia from wresting control of all or parts of Ukraine from the government in Kiev. Putin knows this; unfortunately it is not clear to us that the American government does. http://www.silverdoctors.com/alasdair-macleod-on-ukraine-a-perspective-from-europe/

Is Portugal Next in Line For Wealth Confiscation?

aa-bail-in - very good cartoon A roadmap to confiscation. It starts out with government officials telling you everything is all right—when clearly everything is not all right. Like when the president of Cyprus promised that bank deposits would be safe. A promise that we all know turned out to be worthless. Another example of why you’re almost always better off believing the opposite of whatever the government says, especially in a crisis. Deceptions like this don’t happen by accident. The politicians and media deliberately lull the people into complacency so that they can optimize their forthcoming theft. The next thing that happens needs to come as a surprise, otherwise it loses its effectiveness. It starts with a bank holiday or capital controls. It’s usually optimal—from the government’s view—to impose these measures on weekends or during a holiday to catch people off guard. They need the element of surprise or else people would take protective measures, like moving their money abroad and safely out of reach. Once the banks are closed and capital is trapped, the government is free to confiscate as much wealth as it can get away with. It doesn’t matter what they call it or how they do it, the bottom line is they are making an unscrupulous grab. Capital controls are usually kept in place after the grab to prevent the remaining money from fleeing further slaughter. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-22/portugal-next-line-wealth-confiscation

Israel’s Information Ops

aa-internet troll That Israel is engaged in perception management on a large scale has more-or-less been admitted by the Israeli government, and some of its mechanisms have been identified. The Israeli Foreign Ministry even sent a letter out to a number of pro-Israel organizations emphasizing the “importance of the internet as the new battleground for Israel’s image.” Haaretz reported in 2013 how Prime Minister Netanyahu’s office collaborated with the National Union of Israeli Students to establish “covert units” at the seven national universities to be structured in a “semi-military” fashion and organized in situation rooms. Students are paid as much as $2,000 monthly to work the online targets. http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/israels-information-ops/

Making Money From White Displacement

aa-White dispossession - very good chart Ten years ago I worked for Ocean Tomo, which styled itself with more enthusiasm than precision as “an intellectual capital merchant bank.” Ocean Tomo’s founder and CEO, and my boss, was Jim Malackowski who drove race cars, owned the most expensive single-family house in Chicago at the time, and, being fashionably ultra-liberal, helped bankroll a promising Democratic Senate candidate he insisted on calling “Baruch” Obama. Jim wanted to make money from white displacement. He would not have used the phrase “white displacement;” he preferred speaking of “preferences.” After all, everyone has preferences. The United States government makes no secret of its racial preferences. It prefers to give its business to companies run by non-whites, and that increases the value of those companies. Financial markets in this country (of the “free minds and free markets” that had long been the battle-cry of the old Chicago Board of Trade) are quiveringly alert to the weight of the government’s thumb in assessing valuations. Jim (who is both white and gentile, to anticipate curiosity on that point) concluded that the government’s racial preferences could have an impact on the value of certain assets. But how to identify the assets and profit from that increased value? http://www.amren.com/features/2014/08/making-money-on-white-displacement/#.U_dC1-im5v8.email

Claire McCaskill said, “We need to de-militarize this situation.” Journalists reporting live on the demonstrations sparked by the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown expressed befuddlement as to why the police needed high-caliber weapons better suited for war zones than protests in an American city. But one group of people is decidedly happy about the militarized response in Ferguson: those who work in the weapons industry. The array of police forces–the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the St. Louis county and city police and local Ferguson officers–that descended on the largely black Missouri city have used the products these corporations are selling in abundance. Tear gas, rubber bullets, smoke bombs, stun grenades, armored personnel carriers, sound cannons and high-caliber rifles have all been deployed to quell the unrest, though they have contributed to anger over police tactics. The police response is the perfect showcase for the companies that manufacture military equipment for law enforcement use. They can point to the police tactics to sell their products to other law enforcement agencies preparing for demonstrations. http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/tear-gas-stun-grenades-sound-cannons-companies-profiting-police-crackdowns?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

Three Paradoxes of Policing

aa-Ferguson - 8-21-14 Even if the facts are denied, it is an established reality that blacks are much more inclined to criminality and violence than Whites. Any doubts on this matter can easily be resolved by checking what post-codes professional liberals and leftists live in. The only faintly reasonable line of denial that liberals have is in contesting the causes of this higher crime rate. There is still a sputtering argument – like a candle about to die – that it is caused by a fading memory of 1950s-style, bullwhip racism combined with “economic injustice,” but this argument has clearly run out of road in an era of affirmative action and welfare. For a nation based on the myth of equality and inclusion, the specter of genetic dissimilarity shakes its chains ever louder with each passing year. Industrious leftists, however, continue to fight their embattled corner by redefining the causal trauma of “racism” to include such absurdities as “microaggressions” and “white privilege,” which is essentially a lack of guilt for non-existent crimes. But even these efforts just reinvent the racism wheel, casting blacks as eternal victims of such trivialities as a slightly off-color phrase, unsympathetic word, or awkward fact, and as creatures lacking any agency except liberal-approved resentment and hatred against whites – which is itself an additional cause of criminality. Redefining “racism” in this way is not about fighting actual racism but more about extending the shelf-life of a myth that White leftists and liberals have become psychologically dependent on – a sure sign of a car running on empty as the occupants attempt to get a little more mileage before the engine grinds to a halt for good. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/08/three-paradoxes-of-policing.html

Crocodile Tears for Iraq

aa-George Bush mission accomplished “This is an act of ethnic cleansing, if you will, almost genocide,” a U.S. military official warned. He was referring to bombings that killed nearly 800 members of the minority Yazidi sect in northern Iraq. “Among the wounded, one in five suffered serious injuries,” while “families of the wounded were so shaken by the attack that they insisted on taking their badly broken relatives back to their villages,” away from the hospitals treating them, the New York Times reported. U.S. officials attributed this atrocity to al-Qaeda. Surely it called for a calibrated intervention—a series of airstrikes, perhaps, to prevent a potential slaughter. But these bombings happened in August 2007, years after the U.S. invasion. In that phase of the occupation, Bush “doubled the U.S. presence in Iraq” by sending “150,000 to 170,000 private forces to support the mission there, all with little or no congressional or public knowledge—let alone consent,” as two U.S. academics described the type of democracy Washington prefers. And its preferred foreign policies—“invading, occupying, weakening and looting Iraq”—“brought al-Qaeda into the country,” Juan Cole writes, emphasizing that the Islamist organization had zero presence there before March 2003. Iraq developed in line with Washington’s expectations, in other words. “Months before the invasion of Iraq, U.S. intelligence agencies predicted that it would be likely to spark violent sectarian divides and provide al-Qaeda with new opportunities in Iraq and Afghanistan,” the Washington Post disclosed in May 2007. These grim analyses were “widely circulated within the Bush administration before the war,” which proceeded anyway, with shattering effects. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/08/21/crocodile-tears-for-iraq/

But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it. It routinely paints a picture for the outside world that is diametrically opposed to reality.

Jewish Ethnic Networking

aa-Jews - is it good for the jews Kagan’s arrival on the Supreme Court is a sort of official coming out party for the new elite. It’s been there for quite some time, but the Kagan nomination is an in-your-face-demonstration of the power of Jewish ethnic networking at the highest levels of government. And the first thing one notices is that the new elite has no compunctions about nominating someone for the Supreme Court even though she has no real qualifications. So much for the principles of merit and inclusion: Inclusion does not apply to WASPs now that they have been deposed. And the principle of merit can now be safely discarded in favor of ethnic networking. As I noted previously, This is a favorite aspect of contemporary Jewish self-conception — the idea that Jews replaced WASPs because they are smarter and work harder. But this leads to the ultimate irony: Kagan is remarkably unqualified to be a Supreme Court Justice in terms of the usual standards: judicial experience, academic publications, or even courtroom experience. Rather, all the evidence is that Kagan owes her impending confirmation to her Jewish ethnic connections. http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/08/facebooks-sheryl-sandberg-and-jewish-networking/

Ferguson: Ten Days That Shook the Country

aa-Ferguson - police pointing weapons Much has been said about the shocking “militarization” of the police, and how this seemed to many like a provocation: police in Ferguson were encased in armor that one veteran remarked was heavier than anything he wore in Iraq. And now the cry has gone up: demilitarize the police! Take away their MRAPs, their forest camouflage, and all the paraphernalia of intimidation that accompanies them into battle. Rep. Alan Grayson introduced legislation, shortly before Ferguson exploded, that would have ended the Pentagon program which funneled this gear into local police departments, but it was voted down. Several newer versions are in the works, and a good thing too, but this is attacking the symptoms rather than the disease. The disease is imperialism, otherwise known as US foreign policy: the underlying condition is the American Empire, an international regime of terror and exploitation which cannot be expected to treat its own citizens much better than it treats its overseas subjects. How on earth did we ever expect otherwise? http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/08/19/ferguson-ten-days-that-shook-the-country/

Russia Continues to Strengthen Ties With Germany and China

aa-Vladimir Putin and Angela Merkel The picture being painted in the West is that the ruble is basically the weakest currency in the world. Think about what you have read in the Western media about the collapse in the ruble because of Ukraine and Western sanctions against Russia. But one of the signs of how weak or strong a country is is its currency. And if you look at the ruble in terms of the euro, guess what? The euro is in much worse shape than the ruble. The fact that the Russians have just announced that they are letting the ruble float is more evidence that Russia and China are serious about forming a monetary alliance, and I maintain that Germany will be part of that alliance. It has also been reported recently that the West is very fearful of a German, Russian, Chinese alliance, and that is exactly what it appears we are getting. Also, these sanctions against Russia are really hurting the Baltic States. This means the European countries are going to have to figure out how to help these countries. This is at the same time that Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and others continue to suffer economically. http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2014/8/19_Russia_Continue_To_Strengthen_Ties_With_Germany_%26_China.html

Is Ferguson America’s Future?

aa-Ferguson - 8-19-14 Decades ago, U.S. newspapers, which used to publish the race of both victims of crime and perpetrators, decided to stop doing so. They felt that this was the kind of news people have no need to know. These conflicting visions are not exclusive to race. Many liberals share Sharpton’s vision, while many black folks move out of home communities to escape the scourge of crime. Indeed, if Ferguson in the North County is a racist enclave, why did so many African-Americans move there from overwhelmingly black North St. Louis? https://www.creators.com/conservative/pat-buchanan/is-ferguson-our-future-.html

It has created moral hazard, encouraged the formation of asset bubbles that eventually pop (leaving economic messes), widened the wealth inequality gap to record levels, discouraged savings and investment, severely penalized retirees on fixed incomes, encouraged spending, funded massive government deficit spending by monetizing the debts, lengthened the recession and likely reduced the number of jobs that would have been created if the economy had been allowed to take its normal course. Eventually the Fed’s policy interventions will also have created debilitating, widespread consumer inflation, the “cruelest tax” against the poor and middle classes. http://batr.org/negotium/082014.html

Why the Left is Obsessed With Race

aa-race - race mixed couples For years they kept it under wraps by accusing anyone who mentioned the topic of being a “racist.” Simultaneously they concealed their own intent toward topics regarding race by giving them pleasant names. But now the leftist agenda stands revealed as it becomes clear that their policy is exclusively racial, and aims to replace the American white population with a third-world group. But this is not new. Leftist movements since the Enlightenment have sought to obliterate national boundaries and make people “citizens of the world.” Leftists for decades have advocated world government and the free movement of citizens. Under its most tyrannical dictators, the Soviet Union expanded its multicultural policy to include not just non-Christian religions (Christianity was demonized) but other races. The pursuit of racial equality, a proxy for racial co-mingling, has been a leftist policy since the birth of leftism. Why is the left obsessed with race? We know they speak in code because we have seen how duplicitous their acts of the past have been. Their coding about race disguises another agenda which they hope to use their race policy to achieve, which is the reversal of natural selection so that there can be no social standards or other impediments to the freely raging ego. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-left-is-obsessed-with-race.html

This is Your Recovery and This is Your Recovery Without Drugs

aa-banksters - w uncle sam on wall street We had a choice. We could have bitten the bullet in 2008 and accepted the consequences of decades of decadence, frivolity, materialism, delusion and debt accumulation. A steep sharp depression which would have purged the system of debt and punishment of those who created the disaster would have ensued. The masses would have suffered, but the rich and powerful bankers would have suffered the most. Today, the economy would be revived, saving and investing would be generating needed capital for expansion, and banks would be doing what they are supposed to do – lending money to businesses and individuals. Instead, the Wall Street bankers won the battle and continue to pillage and loot the national wealth while impoverishing the masses. The arrogance, hubris and contempt for morality displayed by the ruling class is breathtaking to behold. They think they are untouchable and impervious to norms followed by the rest of society. They may have won the opening battle, but will lose the war. Discontent among the masses grows by the day. The critical thinking citizens are growing restless and angry. They are beginning to grasp the true enemy. The system has been captured by a few malevolent men. When the stock, bond and housing bubbles all implode simultaneously, all hell will break loose in this country. It will make Ferguson, Missouri look like a walk in the park. I wonder if the occupants of the Eccles building in Washington DC will get out alive. http://www.theburningplatform.com/2014/08/18/this-is-your-recovery-and-this-is-your-recovery-without-drugs/

Putting America Last

aa-immigration - obamagration good one Our own people here at home are hurting right now. With no manufacturing base our economy and national purpose are like a rudderless ship yet instead of making a plan to get America spiritually and physically back on its feet, the politicians are fawning over a large potential new voter block to take under their wing. Last century our leaders inspired us with an optimistic vision of America to build dams and skyscrapers and bridges—today cynical politicians and their retinue of lobbyist barnacles see us only as serfs who need to be ruled and as sources of tax revenue for their pet projects and lavish lifestyles. The average American is so hooked into the mainstream narrative of history that it’s hard to even bring up these concepts without quickly being branded all sorts of hateful names in classic Pavlovian fashion. People’s blindness and naïveté can be downright exasperating—it might take 30 minutes of just getting them up to speed on your premises before a relevant conversation about the issues at hand is even possible. “And who’s got the time, oy vey!” http://www.philipwyeth.com/opinion/putting-america-last/

Former Congressman George Hansen, whose soul was released from its ailing and enfeebled mortal coil on August 14, suffered the inverse of that benediction: He lived long enough to witness the complete validation of his grimly prophetic warnings about the advent of American totalitarianism – albeit of variety yet to be uniformly imposed on our society. Anybody who read Hansen’s 1979 book To Harass Our People would not be surprised by either the IRS targeting scandal, or the emergence of the fully realized Panopticon surveillance system.

Back to the Sixties

aa-police - 1960s and today in Ferguson Nixon has imposed a curfew as black protests continue, militarized “police” prowl the streets, and the Black Panthers call for resistance –and, no, we haven’t traveled in a time machine back to the turbulent Sixties. The Nixon in question is Jay Nixon, the liberal Democrat Governor of Missouri, where the black majority town of Ferguson is embroiled in a racially explosive conflict over the police murder of an 18-year-old African-American by a white police officer. And, no, it’s not those Black Panthers – who were long ago neutralized and destroyed by the FBI’s infamous Cointelpro program – it’s the New Black Panther Party, whose role is somewhat more ambiguous. And yet if history never repeats itself exactly, it often comes pretty close. If we look at where we are today, the parallels with the 1960s, modern America’s time of troubles, are too numerous to be missed: http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/08/17/back-to-the-sixties/

Why the Casino is Dangerous: There is Nothing Below

aa-casino capitalism So with corporate profit rates off the charts, tepid earnings growth, sky-high actual PE multiples and a central bank pegged interest rate structure that has nowhere to go but up, it is evident that Wall Street stock peddlers like Bianco are doing nothing more than calling the sheep to another slaughter. And a slaughter is what it will be. As shown below, there has been a thunderous collapse in stock market volume since the financial crisis, and trading is down by 60% on the NYSE and 75% on NASDAQ. Where has it gone? Into ETFs and the fast money driven options market, that’s where. And what is the central characteristic of these venues in a market crisis? The answer is lack of liquidity and a violent unwind of the implicit leverage in the massive hedge fund driven market in stock options. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/why-the-casino-is-dangerous-there-is-nothing-below/

In the West Respect for Truth No Longer Exists

aa-corporate media The Western media have proved for all to see that the Western media comprises either a collection of ignorant and incompetent fools or a whorehouse that sells war for money. The Western media fell in step with Washington and blamed the downed Malaysian airliner on Russia. No evidence was provided. In its place the media used constant repetition. Washington withheld the evidence that proved that Kiev was responsible. The media’s purpose was not to tell the truth, but to demonize Russia. Now we have the media story of the armored Russian column that allegedly crossed into Ukraine and was destroyed by Ukraine’s rag-tag forces that ISIS would eliminate in a few minutes. British reporters fabricated this story or were handed it by a CIA operative working to build a war narrative. The disreputable BBC hyped the story without investigating. The German media, including Die Welt, blared the story throughout Germany without concern at the absence of any evidence. Reuters news agency, also with no investigation, spread the story. Readers tell me that CNN has been broadcasting the fake story 24/7. Although I cannot stand to watch it, I suspect Fox “news” has also been riding this lame horse hard. Readers tell me that my former newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, which has fallen so low as to be unreadable, also spread the false story. I hope they are wrong. One hates to see the complete despoliation of one’s former habitat. The media story is preposterous for a number of reasons that should be obvious to a normal person. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/17/west-respect-truth-longer-exists-paul-craig-roberts/

Globalizing Gaza

Israelis watch bombings of Gaza from Sderot hillside Operation Protective Edge was not merely a military assault on a primarily civilian population. As in its previous “operations” (Cast Lead in 2008-9 and Pillar of Defense in 2012), it was also part of an ongoing assault on international humanitarian law (IHL) by a highly coordinated team of Israeli lawyers, military officers, PR people and politicians, led by (no less) a philosopher of ethics. It is an effort not only to get Israel off the hook for massive violations of human rights and international law, but to help other governments overcome similar constraints when they embark as well on “asymmetrical warfare,” “counterinsurgency” and “counter-terrorism” against peoples resisting domination. It is a campaign that Israel calls “lawfare” and had better be taken seriously by us all. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/08/18/globalizing-gaza/

The biggest mistake you can make in war, is underestimate your opponent. The only way NATO/EU/USA can prevail, is to use nukes. They will have to use nukes quickly, or they will find out first hand what happened to Germany. Massive, overwhelming, brutal attacks using blitzkrieg tactics, and NATO is history!

How to Deal With the Brainwashed

aa-liberalism ahead turn back now I awoke this morning to the creaking sound of the Western mind closing shut. I felt it squeezing in on me like a car crusher. Public discourse is more controlled and political dissent more squashed than at any point in memory. Try as I may, all the evidence suggests we are on the brink of an ideological Dark Age the likes of which America has never seen. It seems we’re only inches away from living in a world where stating the obvious will be criminalized. Online, the chief enablers of this situation are the smirking young progtards, who are unwilling to even touch any viewpoint that hasn’t been spoon-fed to them in school or beamed into their eyeballs via TV. Their brains have never hatched a single original idea in their lives. They are mere hollow carriers of infectious ideas, not so much Trojan horses as little pink Trojan ponies. The modern young leftist is a weak, wretched, psychotic creature, at once nasty and cowardly. Notice how these bespectacled, bearded nerdlings didn’t have one shred of bravado until they had the full weight of the government, media, and academia on their side. They are the sort of cowards who were terrified to make a peep until it was absolutely risk-free. They are extremely bold—at least behind a keyboard—until directly confronted when there’s no crowd around to protect them. A lone earthworm has more spine than any hundred of them. http://takimag.com/article/how_to_deal_with_the_brainwashed_jim_goad/print#axzz3AlYZKszY

Smoking Mirrors

aa-American ignorance - united we stand w heads in sand good one It looks like we’ve moved up a stage into critical mass with this Ferguson business. It went on and is probably still going on, past the point where someone higher up in the pecking order should have stepped in and taken over. They let it go on. I see where the governor has now decided to send in other forces. Unmentioned in the mix is the fact that Israeli police advisers have been training the American police for some time. Then we hear that all of the NSA traffic was routed directly to Israel. I haven’t been able to decide if they are The Beast of the Apocalypse or the Whore of Babylon or… both, with Godzilla and Mothra thrown in. Many of these police are veterans of American aggression abroad, pumped full of steroids and fear, indoctrinated into the hate and suspicion that now drives them.

A USS Liberty Hero’s Passing

aa-USS Liberty Terry Halbardier, who – as a 23-year-old seaman in 1967 – thwarted Israeli attempts to sink the USS Liberty, died on Aug. 11 in Visalia, California. It took the U.S. government 42 years after the attack to recognize Halbardier’s heroism by awarding him the Silver Star, a delay explained by Washington’s determination to downplay Israeli responsibility for the 34 Americans killed and the 174 wounded. On June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War, the Israeli military attacked the USS Liberty, an American spy ship which had been monitoring Israeli transmissions about the conflict. Intercepted Israeli communications indicated that the goal was to sink the Liberty and leave no survivors. Warplanes and torpedo boats had already killed 34 and wounded 174, when Halbardier slid over the Liberty’s napalm-glazed deck to jury-rig an antenna and get an SOS off to the Sixth Fleet. The Israelis intercepted the SOS and broke off the attack immediately. In effect, Halbardier prevented the massacre of all 294 onboard. Still, the infamy of the attack on the Liberty was twofold. http://original.antiwar.com/mcgovern/2014/08/17/a-uss-liberty-heros-passing/

Jewish Intolerance of Criticism

Anger 2 A topic that is not discussed enough is the screaming, in-your-face, hostile aggression that people must withstand when they dare to trample on Jewish sensibilities. We are not talking about the sophisticated rationalization one sees in the op-ed pages of the mainstream media, or even the smear techniques of organizations like the ADL or the SPLC. We are talking about interpersonal aggression. There is something absolutely primal about it. http://henrymakow.com/2014/08/jewish-intolerance-of-criticism.html

Missouri Shooting Provokes Mainstream Backlash Against Militarized Police

aa-police - half cop half military good one Libertarian-sympathetic politicians Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) both expressed disgust over the cop-soldier similarities. On Thursday, Paul actually penned a Time piece that explored the origins of the phenomenon. This is miles away from the tough on crime hysteria that used to come from the right. It’s a great reason for optimism. President Barack Obama, for his part, on Thursday offered platitudes about togetherness and rights to free press and expression with which he clearly does not agree. Interestingly, Amash and Paul are both politicians who have pushed back against the American war state (even if it’s not as much as antiwarriors would prefer). If the Ferguson police continue doing everything wrong, as they have, backlash against unarmed people being oppressed by a military-like force may continue. And maybe if this kind of force doesn’t belong in American streets, it doesn’t belong anywhere else either. If a wrecked Iraq, and a warzone in Missouri can somehow provoke optimism, it’s the quiet hope that those against one may learn to be against the other. http://original.antiwar.com/lucy/2014/08/14/missouri-shooting-provokes-mainstream-backlash-against-militarized-police/

Cops Gone Wild

aa-police state - newsweek cover During the past decade, perhaps longer, the federal government has systematically militarized local and state police forces in all 50 states. The police have been trained by federally contracted trainers to regard the American public as the enemy. The police are trained that they must not take the risk of encountering members of the public on a trusting basis, but must regard the public as armed and determined to murder the police. I have observed on a number of occasions fully militarily equipped police training by 30 of them lining up and emptying high capacity magazines at the same target. Like most small towns in America, Doraville, Georgia, population 8,500, has a SWAT team armed with the weapons of the US military. Congress should hold hearings to determine which federal budget was used to train state and local police to murder Americans. America has been at war for 13 years at vast costs against Muslims deemed to be a threat to our safety; yet American police have murdered more Americans than we lost in the Iraq war. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/15/cops-gone-wild/

‘Anti-Putin’ Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End to Russian Sanctions

aa-Russia and US struggle Last week Germany reported that in the second quarter, its GDP declined by 0.2%, worse than Wall Street consensus. This happened a few shorts days after Italy reported a second consecutive decline in its own GDP, becoming the first Europen country to enter a triple-dip recession. What’s worse, Europe’s slowdown took place before the brunt of Russian sanctions hit. Surely in the third quarter the GDP of Germany, a nation whose exports accounts for 41% of GDP, will be even worse, with whisper numbers of -1% being thrown casually around, but one thing is certain: Europe is about to enter its third recession since the Lehman collapse just as we forecast at the end of 2013, a “triple-dip” which may become an outright depression unless Draghi injects a few trillion in credit money (which will do nothing but delay the inevitable and make it that much worse once the can can no longer be kicked), and unless normal trade ties with Russia are restored. Which means one thing: for Europe to resume the status quo, it needs to break away from the “Western” alliance and the sanctions imposed upon the Kremlin which solely benefit the populist agenda of Washington, and certainly not Europe proper, which it is now quite clear, is far more reliant on Russia than vice versa. it is also something Putin apparently was aware of from the very beginning. And now, that realization is starting to spread to Europe’s own countries, which – while the new cold war was only one of rhetoric were perfectly happy to go for the ride – but now that trade war has finally broken out, suddenly increasingly more want out. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-16/anti-putin-alliance-fraying-germany-slovenia-greece-czech-republic-urge-end-russian-

50 Years Ago Congress Gave the President a Blank Check for War

aa-Vietnam War - scene Fifty years ago, on August 10, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed what is known as the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. It is a day that should live in infamy. On that day, the President gave himself the power “to take all necessary steps, including the use of armed forces,” to fight the spread of communism in Southeast Asia and assist our ally in South Vietnam “in defense of its freedom.” Or as former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara put it decades later, it gave “complete authority to the president to take the nation to war.” History has shown that the resolution was built on a foundation of misinformation, fabrication, and willful evasion of the truth. Contrary to what the President claimed, there was no unprovoked “act of aggression” against the American destroyers that were patrolling the Tonkin Gulf, and a second alleged incident never even took place. http://hnn.us/article/156384

America is still digging the bullets out of her back from that era, as the above trove of misinfo proves.
