We are America, the Exceptional Empire, Above All Law / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

The USA does not rule the Universe. It does not rule the world. It certainly will never rule Russia and China. If America wishes to risk planetary destruction by waging a nuclear exchange to attempt any of the above, it will be stopped by other means. No country ever was, is, or ever will be above the laws of God and man.

Anti-Semitism: The Ultimate Zionist Weapon / Politics / Israel

By: Global_Research

William Hanna writes: Differentiating between Zionism and Judaism requires recognition of certain basic facts. To begin with, Theodor Herzl (the founder of Zionism) was an atheist whose personal awareness of Jewishness appears to have been awakened during the 1894 trial, wrongful conviction, and imprisonment on Devil’s Island of Alfred Dreyfus, a French artillery officer of Alsatian Jewish descent accused of spying for Germany. In his diaries, Herzl makes no secret of his intention to use Jewish suffering as a means of furthering Zionist ideology. His vision for a Jewish state had nothing to do with “ … I will also bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it” (Jeremiah 30:3). Herzl actually considered various other locations such as Uganda and Argentina for his Zionist state and his view of Zionism and Judaism was more akin to that of Chaim Chassas who in 1943 in the Zionist newspaper, Ha’Arutz, said:

Ed Miliband Distances Himself from David 'Chamberlain' Cameron on Israel Gaza Terror War / Politics / UK Politics

By: Videos

Ed Miliband who has close personal ties with Israel, now fearful of losing votes at the next general election as a consequence of the slow burn genocide of the Palestinian people as illustrated by the current ongoing War on Gaza is attempting to distance himself from Britain's modern day Chamberlain Prime Minister David Cameron by issuing a string of criticisms of primarily David Cameron and secondly Israel's slaughter of mostly women and children.

Zionism And The American Dream / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Ideology Trumps Rationality
Zionists like to claim there “no limit expansion” doctrine for Israel is on a twin track with the so-called American Dream so we can ask this question. What about the Global Caliphate dream or nightmare of ISISI? Is that also “historically valid”?

We can forget the short-lived American foreign policy doctrine that Israel must be defended because, for a period of time, it controlled several major transport routes for oil from the Arabian peninsula to America and its allies in Europe. The “oil handle” for US aid of all kinds to Israel was short-lived but support to Israel is a cornerstone of foreign policy, and Congress is at this moment rushing to vote about $225 million to strengthen Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system.

The Hannibal Directive - Israel Kills Its Own Soldier Hadar Goldin / Politics / Israel

By: Videos

Channel 4 News once more caught Israel in the act of apparently killing its own captured / MIA soldier in Gaza, when just minutes after a 72 hour cease fire come into effect Israel carpet bombed the Rafa city area where the soldier had gone missing, effectively seeking to kill EVERYTHING in the area, men, women, children and even their own missing soldier, resulting in over 100 deaths as Israel initiated what is known as the Hannibal Directive in the event of an Israeli soldier going missing in action, as managing propaganda is of primary importance to the Israeli zionist state.

Flood And The Desert – The Heroic Water Crisis Clash / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

Oh California
 As you read this California's lakes, rivers and streams are steadily dwindling to nothing. Across the SW USA underground aquifers are relentlessly draining dry and by 2025 Lake Mead has a 50% probability of becoming totally dry. About 80% of all rivers in China are so polluted they can support no aquatic life at all. Due to a lack of water, Saudi Arabia has given up on trying to grow irrigated wheat and will be 100% dependent again on wheat imports by 2016. Elsewhere in the Middle East,  the flow of water to the Jordan river, Tigris and Euphrates is down to less than 5% of historic averages. The Dead Sea is shrinking so fast that huge sinkholes proliferate daily, able to swallow roads, buildings and any imprudent person. In central Asia the Aral Sea, one of the world's biggest lakes outside the US-Canadian Great Lakes continues to shrink leaving rusted hulks of ships a dozen kilometres from the retreating waters.

Israel Determined to Exterminate the Real Jews of Palestine, The ONE State Final Solution / Politics / Israel

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Channel 4 News continues to give a unique unbiased window into not just the daily carnage in Gaza of 100+ killed per day of mostly women and children but also the 1930's Germany style madness that has gripped the people of Israel as the nation blindly engages in its own version of the final solution against those deemed to be sub-human, all this on the basis of religious myths of ancient events that never happened that coalesce around the myth of "the chosen people by God" and a "promised land" that the jewish fundamentalist state sees as permission to exterminate non jews living in Palestine.

Flagrant Rush To War In The Ukraine Crisis / Politics / Ukraine Civil War

By: Andrew_McKillop

Rush to War – Fog of War
Fog of war is used by many war historians to describe what drove Europe into World War I and destroyed a century of rising European wealth and colonial power. There were no fixed and set, clearly identifiable triggers and thresholds. Claims that the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and his wife in Sarajevo was the sole trigger or at least the main driver, or that the Lusitania ship-sinking incident was the sole driver of the USA's very late entry to this war are easy to qualify or invalidate. There was a fog of war that had been building for at least a decade, some historians say.

What Russian Sanctions Mean for Your Money / Politics / Financial Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: Vladimir Putin had a chance to back down from his aggression in the Ukraine after Russian separatists shot down a Malaysian passenger jet.

Unfortunately, he didn't.

With no answer to the charge that the Malaysian jet would not have been shot down but for the course of events he set in motion, Mr. Putin has also shown no indication that he plans to change course.

The West's Reckless Rush Towards War with Russia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Dr_Martenson

We're taking big risks for unclear reasons

For reasons that have no rational explanations at this time, the US and Europe have embarked on a concerted program to demonize Putin, ostracize Russia, and bring the world as close to a major conflict as it's been since the Cold War, a time hardly memorable to many in the current crop of our elected officials.

Within hours of the MH-17 plane crash, the United States pinned the blame on Russia generally, and Putin particularly. The anti-Putin propaganda (and if there were a stronger term I'd use it) has been relentless and almost comically over-the-top (see image above, and those below).

Israels Final Solution of Turning Gaza Concentration Camp into a Grave Yard / Politics / Israel

By: Videos

Israeli's drunk on the blood of approaching 1,500 dead palestinian civilians, fermented by the religious zeal of a self professed chosen people of God and programmed by state propaganda that even Goebbels would be proud of as Channel 4 news reports on what appears to have been enacted is Israel's own version of the final solution that amounts to turning the Gaza concentration camp into an unlivable graveyard, presenting Gaza's 2 million people with a stark choice either leave or die by either bombardment or starvation as the Jewish fundamentalist state remains in total control of what enters and leaves Gaza.

US Failure: Unintended Consequence / Politics / US Politics

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The contributors are many as actors in the American Tragedy, to cause the systemic breakdown failed state. Faulty monetary policy, economic policy, and political policy have caused the resulting failure. The primary perpetrators are the central bankers, led by Greenspan and Bernanke. These two men have done more to destroy the USEconomy, the US financial structure, the US currency, than any two men of prominence. To be sure, the Bush, Clinton, and Rubin gang played a huge role in the collapse. Their supporting cast of destructive actors is very long, like the serial bank criminals residing on Wall Street. To be sure, the system itself has played a key role in the harmful factors. The two most apparent harmful resident factors are the strong US labor unions and the influential environmental movement, which together encouraged the vast outsourcing of US industry at first to the Pacific Rim, and then fanning across the developing world. Both workmen compensation and OSHEA regulations interfered with US cost settings, but not as much as USGovt corporate taxes. The textile industry went to India and Pakistan, even Bangladesh. Call centers went to India, Philippines, even Costa Rica. The culprits are too numerous to cite.

Echoes Of The Great War – Only An Echo In The Elite Mind / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Then and Now
There are plenty of similarities, and vast differences between 1914 and 2014.  Just for starters, what is called “public opinion” in western society practically did not exist at all in the run-up to world war in 1914. Today it exists but is heavily mutated and totally unpredictable compared with even 20 years ago.

The Something For Nothing Society Death Spiral / Politics / Social Issues

By: Ty_Andros

This is part II of IV of Useful Idiots and The Something for Nothing Society. In part I, we covered the beginning of the evolution from a capitalist constitutional republic during Teddy Roosevelt's presidency a century ago into the progressive socialist state we have become today. This transformation has taken over a century and has been implemented in such an incremental manner as to be mostly imperceptible to the public at large. It began with the creation of the Federal Reserve (privately owned central bank owned by multi-century banking families) and UNSOUND money (which transformed money from a place to store your savings and labor and a store of value which moved your savings into the future, into an instrument of confiscation, theft and exploitation of the public). The other element of the road to serfdom was the personal income tax, also implemented at that time. This series is a connect the dots exercise designed to allow you to see the enormity and inevitability of the societal collapse we find ourselves in. Its causes, the system that is in place driving it forward and the reality of our situations, better allow you to see and prepare for its demise, hopefully benefitting from it. It is the greatest opportunity in history but requires a keen understanding of history and Austrian economics which has predicted it all. The history of this collapse of empires is being presented to you in this series.

The Social Memory Dump, Shredding Society / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

Intoxicating “the people” or “the mass” with permanent over-information of the trivial sort can be taken as the Aldous Huxley theory of the breakdown of society – to compare with the George Orwell theory where an all-powerful police state severely limits all information except pure propaganda (see for example http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-30/aldous-huxley-vs-george-orwell). I suggest we in fact have suffered a converging twin track of both “strategies” in western society today, including the ultimate in disinformation which is the suppression of the ability to understand, know, and act in consequence of what we know.

The Iron Dome Inside The Heads of Israel’s Leaders / Politics / Israel

By: Danny_Schechter

New York, New York: When you go to a dictionary to look up dome, you find lots of references to hemispherical structures or forms.  You also find that it is slang word for the head.

And so, it may not be much of a stretch to look at the “Iron Dome” counter-missile system utilized by the Israeli forces as a perfect metaphor for the men authorizing its deployment and use, the iron domes of the heads who head up Israel’s military, and orchestrate its most assuredly not defensive war against Gaza.

Rogue States And Loony Tunes / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

The Term No Longer Exists
According to the semi-official Encyclopedia of the New American Nation, published by the University of Michigan, the term “rogue state” ceased being used by any US agency or politician in year 2000. It says American foreign policymakers had used the terms "rogue," "outlaw," and "backlash" states almost interchangeably as the Cold War reached its end. It says that as early as July 1985, President Reagan asserted that "We are not going to tolerate attacks from outlaw states by the strangest collection of misfits, loony tunes, and squalid criminals since the advent of the Third Reich". It was during Clinton's two administrations that “rogue state” had its heyday.
