2 Million Arab Lives Don’t Matter

Elite the real purveyor of conflict and political polarization.

The hypocrisy of the Black Lives Matter movement is astounding. BLM and its followers shout down those who insist all lives matter, regardless of race. In the BLM universe, skin pigmentation is the determinate, as it is for all racists. 

While BLM and identity activists dwell in OCD fashion on racist cops and “white privilege,” they completely ignore the organized mass murder of black- and brown-skinned people by a government that now “takes a knee” for a former criminal, beatified as a saint by the state and its propaganda media. Those responsible for the murder of George Floyd will undoubtedly spend years behind bars, as they should, but this will not quell the outrage and violence committed in his name. 

So lopsided and blinkered is the current identity-obsessed movement, it fails to address a far more deadly and vicious adversary—the neoliberal state. 

The organized murder of more than two million Arabs in Iraq, Syria, and Libya—more than a million in Iraq, 600,000 in Syria, and 30,000 in Libya—does not even register on the BLM and identity ideological radar.

Barack Obama suffocated the antiwar movement that had coalesced around the Bush neocon invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, thus revealing that much of the political activism was predicated along partisan establishment political lines. Antiwar activists of the Vietnam War era called out both Republicans and Democrats for war crimes. Eisenhower, JFK, Johnson, Nixon—both Democrats and Republicans—are responsible for the murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Laotians. 

Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, are directly responsible for arming murderous jihadi mercenaries in Syria and their counterparts in Libya. The latter resulted in vicious racism by Arab Libyans against black African migrant workers and refugees. 

In Syria, Obama’s CIA funded and armed mercenaries in an effort to topple the government of Bashar al-Assad. The illegal effort by the US military to defeat the Islamic State in Syria—a psywar operation birthed by the Pentagon in occupied Iraq—resulted in further destabilizing Syria and killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians. 

Additionally, BLM and the supposed left in America have not pointed out the obvious—psychopathic cops are trained, armed (with tanks and other weapons of mass destruction), and enabled by the Pentagon. Why isn’t the Pentagon a site of protest, like it was during the Vietnam War? 

The neoliberal elite is obsessed with overturning and destroying nations resisting IMF and World Bank domination and the “structural adjustment” schemes bankster and globalist organizations push (the strip mining and privatization of public services).

Identity is not a consideration or precursor—all who resist, regardless of skin color and ethnicity, are to be hunted down and brutally murdered, as Muammar Gaddafi was for the crime of announcing he planned to quit selling oil in US dollars and establish an African gold dinar. 

Iraq’s dictator, Saddam Hussein, wasn’t deposed and executed for threatening the US with weapons of mass destruction, as the ludicrous machinations of the Bush neocons claim. Saddam, a former CIA operative in a plot to assassinate Gen. Abd al-Karim Qasim in 1959, was a trusted asset until he stepped out of bounds, as did another CIA asset, Panama’s Manuel Noriega. 

The Israelis, holding considerable political sway over Congress and the White House, also demanded Saddam Hussein be taken down, primarily for his support of the Palestinians, but also because a nation with a pan-Arabist at the helm was unacceptable. 

Likewise Syria. The hereditary regime of the al-Assad family and the Ba’ath party long touted a pan-Arab worldview and this was unacceptable to Israel and the United States. 

The covert and illegal war by the US and Israel in Syria has nothing to do with human rights, as espoused. The objective is to destroy any resistance to Israeli expansionism, turn pan-Arabism into an Islamic movement that can be more easily radicalized and thus vilified, and balkanize the Middle East along ethnic and religious lines, thus realizing Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy… to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together.”

Only politically expedient and exploitable “barbarians” (as they are considered by the ruling elite, never mind the disingenuous rhetoric) will be allowed to protest and demand justice. BLM racism, the absurd demand white people go prostrate in racial submission, and the criminal looting and burning of cities in the name of George Floyd have not set off alarm bells at the Council of Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Federal Reserve, and the institutional thank tanks. These should be the focus of protest, not police departments militarized by the federal government. The Milwaukee Police Department is not the hydra-head. The federal government and its corporate and bankster overseers are the true purveyors of violent conflict and political polarization.  

The BLM represents the forefront of an effort to divide Americans along racial and political lines, thus keeping race and identity-based barbarians safely away from more critical issues of importance to the elite, most crucially a free hand to plunder and ransack natural resources, minerals, crude oil, and impoverish billions of people whom the ruling elite consider unproductive useless eaters and a hindrance to the drive to dominate, steal, and murder. 

The murder of millions in the Middle East, Asia, South and Central America over the last few decades by a psychopathic elite and its corporate mercenaries does not figure in the equation. 

It is an irrelevant historical footnote, if that, to an identity movement that does not threaten the elite and its political class. It is sad to say BLM serves the elite by ignoring or remaining ignorant of the main problem—boundless predation by a neoliberal criminal project that considers all—black, white, yellow, brown—as expliotable and dispensable serfs.

Prosecute Clinton: For a Server or Orchestrating Mass Murder?

Clinton will never be shackled and sent to The Hague.

The kabuki theater stunts between the two-pronged hydra-head of the one-party political class in America knows no bounds. After Mueller was shot down for his lame and easily disprovable case against Trump, the tide turned against the Democrats. 

Now it’s Hillary’s turn in the hot seat, not that it really matters. As I noted on a previous occasion, Clinton the CFR-directed Iron Maiden would have to kill a toddler in Times Square during the New Year celebration to be arrested, prosecuted, and locked up. 

In fact, she is, and Donald Trump knows it. 

The DNC, Fusion GPS, Steele, Comey, McCabe, et al, all of this distractive squabbling basically serves as a sideshow to the real crimes of Hillary Clinton, faithful servitor for the war party and state. 

I’m not going to re-post the disgusting video clip where Clinton chortles over her role in murdering Muammar Gaddafi. Instead, I’ll focus on her egregious violation of international law by siccing the NATO murder machine on the people of Libya. 

The New York Times, the newspaper of record propaganda, lied when it declared Hillary Clinton tried but failed to bring “democracy” (neoliberal style) to Libya. Gaddafi was primarily a threat because he represented Arab solidarity and, at least as important, his plan to create a gold dinar currency to unite the Arab and Muslim world. 

“If Gaddafi had an intent to try to re-price his oil or whatever else the country was selling on the global market and accept something else as a currency or maybe launch a gold dinar currency, any move such as that would certainly not be welcomed by the power elite today, who are responsible for controlling the world’s central banks,” notes Anthony Wile. “So yes, that would certainly be something that would cause his immediate dismissal and the need for other reasons to be brought forward from moving him from power.”

This was, as well, one of the primary motivations—in addition to knocking out of Israel’s primary enemies—for the imposition of medieval sanctions imposed on Iraq following Papa Bush’s illegal invasion. 

In 2000, Saddam Hussein announced a plan to trade Iraq’s oil in euros, thus undermining dollar hegemony. The sanctions and Bush Jr’s invasion sent a message to OPEC members—the US dollar controlled by the financial elite is the only acceptable monetary unit for buying and selling petroleum. 

It’s said Obama was reluctant to unleash NATO on the people of Libya, but Hillary convinced him otherwise. The subsequent carnage was described by the NYT as “smart power,” a rather grotesque characterization, to say the least.

Beyond a small number of nonpartisan antiwar activists, noninterventionists, and libertarians, only a small faction of leftists report and analyze Clinton’s war crimes in Libya. 

During Clinton’s grilling over the Benghazi ratline that fed arms from Libya to Saudi-spawned jihadi maniacs in Syria trying to overthrow another of Israel’s Arab foes—Bashir al-Assad—Republicans almost touched on the crux of the matter (but only because a Democrat was in the hot seat). 

Don Debar, a RadioJustice host, put it into perspective: 

The most interesting part of the Hillary Clinton Republican committee show yesterday—and it is a show, a sideshow—was when one of the Republican members of Congress actually tried to get rid of the sideshow and deal with the actual issue at hand, which is not Benghazi but Libya proper, and particularly Hillary Clinton’s role in destroying that country.

Representative [Peter] Roskam opened his interrogatory of Clinton by asking whether her statement that was captured on camera when she was getting ready for an interview – ‘We came, we saw, he died’ – about the murder of Muammar Gaddafi represented her policy towards Libya,” he added. 

And in denying that it represented policy she – under oath – essentially admitted to the fact pattern of US policy being regime change in Libya and the killing of Gaddafi. Both are war crimes, both are prosecutable acts at the International Criminal Court, and her statements were made under oath.

And the thing I am looking at next, I am very interested in seeing what statements were made by the Obama administration under oath in their response papers to a lawsuit that was brought under the war powers act back in 2011 by Dennis Kucinich and nine other members of Congress seeking to make the US government stop this war on Libya because it had not been authorized by Congress at that point, to see if any of those pleadings contain an absolute denial under oath of the US having as an aim either regime change or the killing of Gaddafi.

And if I do find that—and I have copies of the pleadings—then basically I am going to be in possession of the two contrary statements taken under oath, one from Clinton saying that the policy was regime change and the killing of Gaddafi, and one from the White House saying that it was not the policy. And then someone, somewhere—some court, somebody—has to resolve that contradiction.

Of course, this will never happen—the financial elite, its obedient congressional water carriers, and the corporate propaganda media will not allow it to happen. 

Hillary may get a light hand slap for the role she played in colluding with the DNC to prevent Trump from taking office—this is entirely iffy—but she will never be shackled and sent to The Hague to stand trial for facilitating mass murder and reducing a formerly prosperous nation to a miserable and violent failed state. 

Justice neoliberal-style is reserved for the likes of Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Slobodan Milosevic, and a host of others, not favored operatives such as the criminal Hillary Clinton.

Rep. Omar: Obama is a Murderer with a “Pretty Face”

The presence of Ilhan Omar in Congress certainly is a breath of fresh air. It is rare for a Democrat to trash Obama, but Omar did so, calling out the former president’s misdeeds, including “droning of countries around the world.”  Continue reading “Rep. Omar: Obama is a Murderer with a “Pretty Face””

What Kind of Country Are We?

That’s what Time magazine tweeted this morning. It is trying to place the blame for Trump’s immigration policy—specifically, his separation policy—on all Americans. Time wants us to stand up for the children.

The Libyan Model Suicide Note

Kim Jung-un was upset. Trump’s VP Mike Pence made an indelicate reference to the Libyan Model. It wasn’t a good sign following John Bolton’s use of the term. The corporate propaganda media mentioned denuclearization, but left alone “we came, we saw, he died,” Hillary Clinton’s psychopathic take on Caesar in response to Gaddafi’s brutal murder.
