  • Whatever Obama’s intentions are/were with this announcement, you can pretty much make bank that it wasn’t really to “help” Latinos. It’s just more Kabuki Show.

    Plus duly noted that ever so “leftwing” National Propaganda Radio spent the weekend running quotes from Latinos/Hispanics who did NOT like what Obama did. Of course, that’s bs, too, but it appears that not all Hispanics are so on board with Obama (and they’d be wise to cast a wary eye at him, as he’s deported more Latinos/Hispanics than any of his predecessors).

    Kabuki Show, pure and simple.

    Maybe Liz Warren has a teeny tiny smidgeon of sympathy for the plight of the 99% – a big maybe but still… And that’s about it.

    Warren can stand on her hind legs and bray out this stuff because, essentially, it’s meaningless. Perp walks or doesn’t count.

    The PTB are happy to have this crap happens because it gives them cover and makes it ‘look like’ “something is happening.”

    Here’s a clue: don’t hold your breath waiting for anything to happen. The Banks call the shots. The 99% gets golden showers… if we’re lucky.

  • Thanks, Kevin, for your analysis of this propaganda. It’s helpful to have it lined out to show how it works.

    This is one of the bigger reasons why I got rid of my tv. It’s all propaganda 24/7/365 no matter which station you watch.

    I noted this weekend that NPR *seemed* to have a higher than average number of out-takes from Fox. How anyone can see National Propaganda/Pentagon Radio as anything even approaching “leftwing” is beyond me. Plus it also carefully frames narratives for the greatest possible affect. Similar crap about Ferguson and the terrible, awful, very very dangerous protestors and how the PD simply “has to” gear up for “violent rioting.” Awful nasty stuff.

    Maybe they couldn’t buy off Hagel enough to make him stand up on these podiums and bray about the crushing NEED for endless WAR, Inc??

    Does this mean that Hagel has a smidgeon of a conscience? If so: will wonders never cease?

    I thought all of these top brass were bought off and beholden to the MIC, which rewards them so handsomely.

  • Interesting. I guess the PTB need some time for their paid provocateurs and “outside agitators” to get in place before announcing the decision. Plus get the propaganda media all lined up to show the Ferguson protestors as if they’re really out of control.

    Figures.

    This whole Kabuki Show has been so ginned up from Day One.

    Propaganda, indeed.

    Also take note that Clint Eastwood has his own War Machine propaganda vehicle to open on Christmas Day no less. Called, appropriately, American Sniper, it stars Bradley Cooper as a SEAL with 150 “kills” under his belt.

    Do you think that Rush & Fox will bellow and rant about how this movie really truly is about their fake, ginned up “War on Xmas”?? No? Me either. NO doubt Rush & Fox will be heavily encouraging their braindead stooges to go out on Xmas day and watch Bradley Cooper “take out” a bunch of horrid disgusting Muzlinz. Yay: WWJD? Why murder people, of course.

    Just don’t say “Happy Holidays” bc that’s despicable and it makes Baby Jeebus cry big tears…

    they can’t afford to lose this location. It’s key

    Yes. Like you, I always knew Afghanistan was not going away any time soon.

    Plus, see my comment vis NPR radio program on women marine combatants. Need to be ready for “the next War.” Really the announcer shoulda said: Need to stay ready for the everlasting, ongoing, never-ending War without End, Amen.

    But hey Big Al: LOTE LOTE LOTE! If you vote third party, you’re just a spoiled selfish idiot who expects sparkle ponies that poop rainbows, and this is just how it is… blah de blah…

    MIC: turning USA into a third world country one War at a time…

    I happened to catch a section of the Sunday morning programming on National Pentagon/Propaganda Radio yesterday. It was about a program to test women in the Marines to see if they could handle combat duty.

    The program discussed how they were testing female marines, etc. The somewhat jaw dropping bit was one of the very last sentences, where the stenographer said words to the effect of: “Testing female marines to see if they can handle combat will enable the USA to be ready for the next War.

    Just like that: “the next War.”

    As if it’s like a season – next Spring. Of course, there will be a “next War.”

    And thus: propaganda is somewhat subtle but effective.

    I had to keep turning off NPR “nooz” bc they almost constantly had bits from Fox Nooz all day. LOTS of quotes from Ted Cruz. FYI.

    Interesting. Palace intrigues, perhaps. Thanks for letting us know.

    All pols are, at the end of the day, are prostitutes. They are so beholden to the money that none of them are honest, can be trusted to do what’s best for all concerned etc. MJ will be legalized in CA poss in 2015. The last ballot initiative was poorly conceived & written. The mistakes [...]

  • Eh? White cop sees black youth with what appears to be a gun, whether toy or not. So what?

    White cop shoots to kill & success!!

    Why not? There’s absolutely NO consequence whatsoever for the white cop to MURDER black male youth in cold blood. NO CONSEQUENCE… other than probably an “Atta Boy” from his superiors and fellow PD.

    When will this ever end?

    File under FWIW (not much): certainly seems staged to me. Another Kabuki Show, IOW, to pit the masses against one another.

    Oh look over there!!!!!! The dusky-hued of Ferguson MO are a-linin’ up to whomp on the poor poor poor overwhelmed Ferguson PD. call the waaahmbulance.

    The outcome from the Grand Jury is almost certainly complete immunity for Officer Wilson.

    heh… good catch! And there may even be some Indian (as the comedian Carlos Mencia says: Indians with the Dot, not the feather) food at our feast. The hike is a pretty easy one for me, but I’ve been hiking for so long that it just goes with the territory! It would be better if it rained [...]

    While I do believe that some undocumented workers in the USA will benefit from this measure (and good for them), I just see this as typical KABUKI Show from the District of Criminals.

    Needless to say, the corporate-fascist propaganda Wurlitzer was pre-programmed to churn into Hyper-Spin drive and tediously rant & tirade about this to churn up the braindead masses into hating the “other” in the 99s. Great distraction while WAR, Inc criminal profiteers continue to fleece the 99s blind by their overweening hubris and greed and unfettered delight in MURDERING useless eaters across the globe.

    In 2012, GA had passed stringent laws against illegal workers, and then suffered great losses in agriculture due to not having enough workers to pick the crops.

    Super “red” GA begged the hated Fed Govt to enact some sort of farm guest worker program… yeah: call on the Fed when your stupidity, cupidity & vapidity render you senselessly idiotic due to your braindead racism. Even Wall Street weighed in on it.

    I haven’t been able to determine how the GA Crackers dealth with their farm cheap labor shortage after 2012, but I’m willing to bet a lot of money that the GA rednecks went right on back to *recruiting* and hiring undocumented workers from South O the Border (and by that, I don’t mean the Mason-Dixon line).

    Anyone willing to bet against me on this one??

    Hi eCAHN and all. Sounds like a lovely dinner on Thursday, eCAHN. Bon appetite! I will travel by 2 buses, air, bus, train & car (the sequence) from Northern CA to San Diego. I do this about once per month anyway, as I own a house in Fun Diego. Turkey day will include no turkey [...]

  • I don’t get your point.

    I certainly do not condone the excesses of ObamaCo and how they’ve permitted the rich to get away with not paying their fair share.

    It’s just that the whiners here constantly vetch and moan and complain about the horrid lucky duckies in the 47% who don’t pay Fed Income Tax… because they make such paltry wages that they don’t have to pay. They’re not scofflaws, as you so charmingly mis-represent & lie about it.

    I rarely, if ever, see the same commenters here complaining about the true scofflaws in the 1% who don’t even pay the full paltry amounts on their capital gains taxes. Mitt RMoney refused to show his tax reports except for ONE year, and in that year, he paid a paltry 17%. When was the last time YOU only paid 17% in Fed taxes. I can tell the last time I did: NEVER. I’ve always paid more than that in Fed Inc and other taxes.

    Get real. YOur complaints don’t hold water. Send me a link to where you took direct political action to get the Obama Admin to hold the wealthy accountable for their tax liabilities.

    I’ll be waiting…
