Netanyahu’s ‘Sirens of Apartheid’

Critics have labeled the current Israeli Likudnik government that is comprised of right-wing, as well as religious parties, as the most extreme in that nation’s history. It features a justice minister [sic], Ayelet Shaked; a deputy foreign minister, Tzipi Hotovely; and a minister of culture and sport, Miri Regev who are all far out of step, out of line with international law and, in fact, the international consensus essentially of what should be the “rules of the road” for the long, arduous, and likewise seemingly never ending Israel/Palestine conflict.

Obama just as guilty as Netanyahu for this current Nakba

In a recent speech, George Galloway said that he met Barack Obama at a demonstration, and that he spoke to him for awhile. Obama told the British parliamentarian during this conversation that he’d been “well schooled” by Edward Said on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. If that is true then the late and great Professor Said, must be rolling over in his grave at the actions of his wayward pupil. The horrors that Obama permits via acts of omission (as well as commission) are truly astounding, indeed. Continue reading

Guantanamo Bay: America’s Sevastopol?

Not only is Guantanamo Bay an illicit torture and concentration camp for alleged terrorists, but numerous legitimately recognized legal scholars have called into question the continued acceptance of the US government to still be occupying its military enclave there. Continue reading

Niall Ferguson’s attack on Keynesian economics

Niall Ferguson would undoubtedly like to go back to starvation deaths being the leading cause of premature departure for the elderly. Or at least see nearly half of all the elderly living in poverty—it is estimated that 43.6% would be so without Social Security. The starvation death thing may be an urban legend, something I know I’ve heard (somewhere) along the way, but have been unable to find a reputable source for. Continue reading

Margaret Thatcher: Ding-dong the wicked witch is dead

No doubt a great influence upon Barack Obama, Margaret Thatcher has passed from this Earth. Just as the callous and malevolent Iron Lady disinterestedly crushed miners, the rumors are out that Barry plans to—just as fiendishly—crush the elderly and the disabled. Continue reading

The State of Israel: Unimportant to the NWO

It is without question incorrect, in my opinion, to state that, it is the nation of Israel that controls the United States. Although I do think; however, that there are people high in the US government who have the interest of Israel above that of the United States. Continue reading

Middle Eastern maze perplexing

Hamas was based in Damascus, and now it has moved to Qatar. Moneybags Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, has put a lot of bread into Gaza—an investment project worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The Gulf Arabs are knaves, though, routinely in line with U$terrorist/UK/NATO, and not to be trusted. Continue reading

New Deal to challenge the duopoly

The New Deal Party, I think, is a great idea for the left to seize upon. With so much of the Democrats/Democratic Party having gone DLC/Wall Street, the time is now more than ever for a third party. Continue reading

Accentuating barbarism via Western ‘civilized’ powers

It may have all started back when Zbigniew Brzezinski bragged about taking out the Soviet Empire through the backing of mujahideen/jihadi forces. It may have started even earlier, but the current climate is all too clear about what the US/NATO-led West is supporting. The Western choice to back fundamentalist Islam, as opposed to secularist (even if not neoliberal forces), in this humble observer’s opinion is and, will ultimately pan out to be, an egregiously flawed decision. Continue reading

Susan Rice is being attacked for all of the wrong reasons

Susan Rice is, unequivocally, irascible, mean-spirited and a very disagreeable person. This has not previously been an impediment, though, to one becoming a US Secretary of State. Continue reading

Dead-enders for Obama celebrate a second term

The exuberant jubilation that was there for Obama’s first ascendancy is noticeably removed for the “grand orator’s” second term. Though his sycophants, rose-colored onlookers, and enablers of all sorts—are still singing their darling’s praises. A darling they should, certainly, not be trusting so unguardedly and who may, in fact, cleave them with a dagger,should they not be looking for it, in their much vaunted “gentleman caller’s” second term. Continue reading

Empire is a non-partisan affair

Writing in Foreign Policy Magazine Hillary Clinton gave the world sufficient, satisfactory, “courteous, and “fair” notice of where the United States’ empire would soon be repositioning, reassessing, reevaluating, and indeed newly transfixing its ever-wrongheaded magisterial/imperial gaze. The article was penned in the November 2011 edition of the house mag of militaristic benightedness, bellicosity, and consecrated hegemonical (global) carte blanche, Foreign Policy. Continue reading

Since when has America respected the right of self-determination?

Mr. President, I must say, that I think you are somewhat confused about the history of US foreign policy. In your speech on September 25 at the UN, in fact, you even suggest that self-determination is not only a Western one but a universal human value. Continue reading

Mitt Romney’s faith and asset stripping

Mitt apparently was filmed, in this now prominent video, at the home of a Boca Raton, Florida, asset stripper. A private equity/leveraged buyout guy just like Mitt himself: a living vampire, a bloodsucker, a leech, a walking undead. A man who even has neighbors who cloned their own dog for a meager $150,000. According to Governor Romney a sum of money that’s “clearly,” “not very much.” Continue reading

Ms. Rousseff Goes to the White House

Barack Obama recently visited with current Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. President Obama didn’t receive her, however, with the kind of pomp and circumstance, that has been given to nations like Indian and China. President Rousseff only met with Obama in a brief meeting, she did not receive a state dinner, and Obama spent most of the day rolling Easter eggs on the South Lawn. Continue reading

Is US sanctimony on the wane?

For certain segments of the global population, the United States has, of course, virtually always represented little to nothing good. No doubt, however, many have given credence to the idea of liberal, and democratic notions that the United States is ostensibly about. Recent events, though, would seem to belie the notion that United States is about high-minded, and lofty ideals, but it is rather the entity with the biggest stick, who will carry out its bidding—and that of multi-national corporations—with concern for respect, scruples, and moral human dignity receiving extremely little care. Continue reading

Baloney 2012: Imperialist propaganda film making waves on YouTube

Uganda is undoubtedly rife with resources for Obama, Sarkozy, Cameron, et. al. to plunder, otherwise why would a viral film like Kony 2012 be popping up on YouTube? And the unwitting, or perhaps even duplicitously savvy shill’s film—and its Hollywood accomplices—are certainly making ample headlines. Continue reading

Bahrain: A forgotten Arab Spring

Bahrain continues to undergo an uprising against the extremely authoritarian monarchy that enduringly, and unenlightenedly continues to rule that country. It is an Arab Spring that we shouldn’t forget about or negate. We shouldn’t forget about this important Arab uprising, that is occurring within the homeland, and, in fact, the veritable stomping grounds of the US Naval Fifth Fleet. Indeed, the US corporate “mainstream” mass media has probably blacked out this important Arab uprising of the majority Shia—of this iron-fisted Sunni Kingdom—for precisely this very reason. Continue reading

African Sahel facing slide into oblivion

Thanks to the “help” of the US and NATO, and their Islamist proxy butchers of Libya, the African Sahel is now potentially facing a “slide into hell.” Libya is, of course, facing its own disharmony, but its Sahelian neighbors are facing a host of problems too. Continue reading

Obama: Drones and change

The Washington Post, it seems, decided to do a bit of actual journalism recently. It published an extensive and informative article on Obama’s infatuation with the mass-killing aerial drone. This former constitutional scholar does not seem to feel impeded—by either the Constitution or the Bill of Rights—in his love affair with; and indeed, his use and misuse of this harbinger (and indeed harvester) of death. Continue reading

Once Gore Vidal’s dauphin, now cosmic stardust

Good ole Christopher Hitchens is gone, once one of the most prescient and incisive critics of American imperialism, he cheerled for it during the abominable administration of George W. Bush. Still a record as impressive as his should not be eviscerated, by one conspicuously and egregiously recognizable mistake. Estimates as high as a million dead, have been recorded, though, and he put himself in league with some very dark-hearted and malignant folks. Continue reading
