As Obama Administration Cracks Down on Jews in Ukraine and India, Can It Still Not Happen Here?

As Obama Administration Cracks Down on Jews in Ukraine and India, Can It Still Not Happen Here? — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

Far-Right Racist forces, possibly loyal to US Intelligence and First Look Media owner Pierre Omidyar, are harassing Jews in the Ukraine. At least two men violently attacked Ukrainian Rabbi Hillel Cohen in Kiev last week, calling him “Yid!” (an antisemitic slur).  http://www.jta.org/2014/03/14/news-opinion/world/kiev-rabbi-assaulted-in-suspected-anti-semitic-attack

Billions of US dollars flowed from Omidyar and Obama’s Intelligence community to the coalition of the self-named Ukrainian “Nazi Party” [later changed to "Freedom Party" (Svoboda)].

Under the influence of those Billions, Ukraine’s parliament ruled that it’s Legal to call a Jew a Zhyd, and to call a Jewish female a Zhydovka, and that these Racial slurs are not antisemitic.  http://www.timesofisrael.com/ukraine-okays-slur-zhyd-for-jews/

(Bizarrely, Wikipedia condones the antisemitic slur, claiming that it isn’t anti-Jewish and that it isn’t a slur when it’s used by Ukrainians.)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhydovka

For links confirming that Svoboda is Nazi, that Obama and Omidyar (Oh-Oh) funded its Nazi coalition, and that anti-Jewish incidents have cropped up since that funding’s been in place, please see the bottom of this page.

The Ukraine’s Nazi/Freedom Party (whose coalition is supported by Oh-Oh) officially calls for fighting Jews in its mission statement.  http://www.jta.org/2014/02/25/news-opinion/world/ukraine-jews-hunkering-down-amid-turmoil  ~&~  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svoboda_%28political_party%29#Allegations_of_neo-nazism_and_political_extremism

US mainstream media (MSM: ABCNNBCBS, Fox, most newspapers & radio stations) and the official US Propaganda organs (PBS, NPR) blitzed the airwaves all week, demanding that the US ‘man up’ and support the Ukraine coup, ignoring the Nazi connection and ignoring the results of the last Ukrainian Election.

During far-Right putsches/coups, including those the CIA just pulled against Venezuela and the Ukraine, the Intelligence-targeted countries’ news media are infiltrated such that they encourage the public – that is, they try to trick the public – into supporting Fascism. Are we in an Intelligence-targeted country now?

Omidyar might appear to be involved in another serious coup, against Freedom of the Press. I refer of course to his very publicly hiring (many say ‘buying up’) some of the world’s top investigative reporters, including those closest to heroic Military Intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden (Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras), as well as Jeremy Scahill, Empty Wheel’s Cindy Wheeler (formerly of FireDogLake.com), and Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi.

Taibbi’s RS colleague Michael Hastings, Internet- & Press-Freedom advocate Aaron Swarz, and hundreds of other journalists in the United States, Mexico, and Honduras were Assassinated or suspiciously got dead under Obama’s reign so far. They just wouldn’t shut up. Obama claims he is allowed to just order Assassinations if he wants. He admits to doing it.

Prepping Press with Propaganda makes the people more pliable.

Early on, the Obama regime overthrew elected Governments and suppressed the media in Honduras and the Maldives with far-Right Fascist coups, too. I hope to find out if Omidyar was also involved in funding those coups, and in the Obama Administration’s far-Right attempt to overthrow Venezuela and steal its Oil (simultaneous with the US’s anti-Ukraine actions).

As one after another of the world’s top investigative journalists agreed to join Omidyar’s First Look Media, we who believe in investigative journalism had our hopes pumped up higher and higher: Can we really hope for widespread access to professionally investigated non-MSM news?

Then, amid revelations that Omidyar helped Obama and US Intelligence fund elements of the UNC (Ukraine’s Nazi Coup), I felt my hopes for First Look had been completely dashed.

I hope I’m wrong about that. I hope they’ll be doing hard-hitting reporting on any and all Obama-and-Omidyar-linked Fascist groups in the Ukraine, the Maldives, Honduras, Venezuela, Mexico, and elsewhere.

Groups on the far Right are often called “Fascists,” “Neo-Fascists,” Nazis,” or “Neo-Nazis.” President Obama is officially the titular head of several Fascist Terrorist groups currently waging war against the US and its allies, including the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Zetas Drug Cartel of Mexico, an arm of the US CIA.  https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/03/13/president-obama-covering-presidencys-role-torture-4-years/ ~&~ http://www.soaw.org/category-table/3729-captured-zeta-leader-weve-purchased-weapons-from-the-us-government-itself ~&~ http://www.soaw.org/about-the-soawhinsec/soawhinsec-grads/notorious-grads

Russian gas has flowed contentiously to the Ukraine and through it to the EU for some time. The US may be ready to man up with exported US “Natural” Gas to help fill that potential gap, even though the President knows that burning all that gas would kill all the children in this country before their time.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/using-us-natural-gas-as-an-energy-wedge-against-russia/2014/03/22/634ae586-b13b-11e3-95e8-39bef8e9a48b_story.html ~&~ http://www.npr.org/blogs/parallels/2014/03/21/292369163/can-europe-wean-itself-off-russian-gas

Corporate Bribery could be why President Obama is so incentivized to arm Ukrainian Nazis, as Oil companies and other frequent Obama contributors clamor for a piece of the overthrown Ukraine’s pie.  http://consortiumnews.com/2014/03/16/corporate-interests-behind-ukraine-putsch/

David Headley of the DEA, one of the Neo-Nazi Terrorist organizations the President heads, Murdered and Kidnapped Jews in the antisemitic Mumbai attack in India just after Obama got elected, on November 26, 2008.

The Indian Government then copied the US “9/11″ Terrorist Propaganda and the UK “7/7″ Terrorist Propaganda, that were used to curtail Human Rights in America and Britain, respectively (the so-called “Fascist Reforms”).

In India the commercial catch phrase for the Fascist Reforms was “27/11″ – using the catchy rhyming date, with its emotional tug, to convince people to give up their freedom to the homeland security apparatus, after the US-Intelligence-sponsored Mumbai Terrorist strikes.

India wants to prosecute the DEA’s Headley, but the DEA’s head, Barack Obama, is Covering Up for the confessed Racist Murderer, and blocking his underling Agent David Headley’s extradition.  http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/disappointed-at-us-refusal-to-extradite-david-headley-salman-khurshid-321478

New York Times Bribes Obama and Romney, After Campaigns Demand It

New York Times Bribes Obama and Romney Because Campaigns Demand It — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters revealed this week that his paper Bribes both President Barack Obama and his Republican opponent Mitt Romney. He reported that the Times began giving the Bribes after they were Blackmailed by both Obromney campaigns. Peters said that the Washington Post also pays the Bribes, as do Reuters news service and Bloomberg News. Peters indicated that all four were Blackmailed by the two campaigns into agreeing to pay the Bribery. He says many other news outlets have been victimized by the Republicrats during this rigged Election.

Allowing the President to Censor the Press marks a Government as overtly Fascist.

http://www.democracynow.org/2012/7/18/headlines/us_media_granting_politicians_final_say_on_attribution_quotations

The report begins at 9:28 in the video below:

 

 

Both Barack Obromney and Mitt Obromney are taking part in the Blackmail and Accepting the Bribes. We need an Independent Prosecutor right away!

Accepting Censorship privileges is Accepting a Bribe. The definition of Bribery is a gift that alters the behavior of the recipient. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bribery

Refusing to give interviews unless allowed Censorship privileges is Blackmail. The definition of Blackmail is making unjustified threats to make a gain. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackmail

US/Al Qaida Genocidal Oil Dictatorship Torturing Black Libyans: Obama & NY Times say Rigged Election was Cool

US/Al Qaida Genocidal Oil Dictatorship Torturing Black Libyans: Obama & NY Times say Rigged Election was Cool — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

These guys did not get to vote, even though no one could possibly be more patriotic than them: During their Torture at the hands of US-backed mercenaries in this video, watch them forced to eat green Libyan flags.

 

 

Before the Obama Administration’s US Military crushed Arab Spring by starting its war against Libya, that country’s leader Moammar Gaddafi enjoyed wide support among Black Africans living mainly in Libya’s South. After the US hired Al Qaida mercenaries to overthrow Gaddafi, the new Al Qaida Dictatorship now running Libya carried out widespread repression, Torture, and Genocide against Black Africans. I have seen no reports that any Black Africans voted in the Parliamentary Election there this weekend.

US President Barack Obama’s praise of the Libyan Election was quite echoic of his praise for the “Elections” following the Fascist takeovers that were parts of his Administration’s Administrative coup de tats that Obama’s CIA carried out in Honduras in 2010, in the Maldives earlier this year, and in Paraguay two weeks ago. The New York Times propaganda headline yesterday also said it was a mainly good Election. The problem I see with it is the Election workers Assassinated, polling officials Murdered, and the ballots burned. l call that a “Rigged Election.” But President Obama and inept media with misinformed readers and viewers call it cool. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/08/us-libya-elections-obama-idUSBRE86700X20120708

Yahoo/AP reports that two people were Murdered carrying out the Election. HuffPost claims just one. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/07/libya-election_n_1656370.html?utm_hp_ref=world Someone shot down a helicopter carrying Election equipment. Also, two rockets were fired at the Benghazi Medical Center. http://www.focus-fen.net/index.php?id=n282600

Like most wars, this one was fought to raise the price of Oil. This one also had the direct effect stealing Oil that a country had been using to support itself, and handing that Oil and its attendant economy to Oil corporations. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-01-19/conoco-books-tanker-to-ship-libyan-oil-to-u-s-shipbrokers-say.htm Mercenaries during the 2011 US War on Libya were paid by BP, Blackwater, and ultimately, by US. At the top of the page is a recent video upload of Black Africans still being Tortured by the current Libyan mercenary Dictatorship.

Prison Planet noted that the fully corporate Huffington Post favored the invasion. http://www.prisonplanet.com/obama-prepares-invasion-of-libya-under-humanitarian-cover.html

Here is President Obama lying about the US invasion of Libya, and the US-backed Al Qaida Genocide against the Black people of Libya. He claims it to be a “broad international effort” when in fact more than 95% of the bombing runs were by US Military aircraft. He claims that the invasion avoided Humanitarian catastrophe, when in fact it brought Genocide against the Black people there. President Obama lies to the American people in this video, seeking to legitimize his War Crimes in Libya. Please compare his bullshit to the more level-headed words of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the video that follows. http://live.wsj.com/video/obama-libya-mission-averted-humanitarian-disaster/3064390D-03DB-4704-BB89-FDE823C86DD9.html#!3064390D-03DB-4704-BB89-FDE823C86DD9

 

You’ll note that President Obama claims his attack on Benghazi is noble. You’ll also note that Benghazi is one place where ballots were burned and looted. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/07/us-libya-elections-protest-idUSBRE86604920120707

That last report was from RT out of Russia. Of course, US-backed far-Right Libyan mercenaries arrested Journalists from Press TV of Iran during the conflict. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/228888.html

The British later revoked their license. http://www.rt.com/news/iranian-presstv-license-revoked-333/ The US Government named the Journalists at both Press TV and RT of Russia as enemies. If you’ve never watched them, both are much better journalism than we usually find on PBS, on Fox, or on ABCNNBCBS.

 

Of course, one of the first things NATO did in Libya was bomb the Journalists in the broadcast center. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/8560856/Libyan-state-television-claims-Nato-bombed-broadcast-centre.html

VIDEO of Slave Children: AFL-CIO, SEIU, CWA Sell Out Workers, Endorse Candidate who Supports Slavery

8:21 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

VIDEO of Slave Children: AFL-CIO, SEIU, CWA Sell Out Workers, Endorse Candidate who Supports Slavery — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

Slave children are often kidnapped or bought from their parents on the Indian Subcontinent. Others were taken when their parents were slaughtered during anti-Black Genocide in the Sudan. Before Barack Obama became President, there were lots of videos of the child Slave jockeys viewable on YouTube. They’re harder to find now on corporate YouTube. This is a recent video of Slave children.

It’s an example of the Slavery that President Obama, the AFL-CIO, SEIU, and CWA endorse by supporting Bahrain and the UAE. And presumably this is what our President and union bosses envision for American workers. Oh, and, by the way, Slaves are beaten, molested, raped, killed. Knowing that, maybe now you don’t want to watch the video. But maybe you’d better watch it. This could be your next labor union!

As the Democrats swerve recklessly to the far Right, large US labor unions are selling out their member workers by endorsing the pro-Slavery candidate, six months ahead of the 2012 Presidential Election. What’s worse, they know that their candidate President Barack Obama (who supports Slavery in Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates) is the most anti-labor Democratic Presidential candidate since Woodrow Wilson [who won one hundred years ago in 1912 with Ku Klux Klan support].

With this development we must conclude that the leadership of those labor groups (including Communications Workers of America, Service Employees International Union, and American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations) sold out completely to management corporations.

Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO, famous for lying about the supposed US “need” for Fossil Fuel Pipelines, lied about Obama too, saying that the President is good for workers in his endorsement. Strange that Trumka would support Obama anyway, though, after he’d already noted that Obama is working against labor. http://blog.heritage.org/2011/08/25/union-boss-trumka-spend-more-mr-president/

President Obama supports Slavery in Bahrain and the UAE. The Slaves are of a different race and have darker skin than their owners. Camel races in both places and elsewhere exposed the Slavery prevalent on the Arabian Peninsula. To hide the fact that Slavery exists there, robots replaced child Slave jockeys in many televised races, but not in all camel races. Other uses of Slaves were not affected by that superficial change.

Here’s the biggest Slave owner/Slave driver from the above video, laughing it up with Barack Obama while his Slaves suffer. http://www.thenational.ae/news/uae-news/sheikh-mohammed-meets-barack-obama-us-president And of course Obama is trying to intensify the Middle East’s Nuclear Arms race by sending Nukes to to his buddy there in the Slave state of UAE. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/05/20/obama-approves-plans-uae-nuclear-power-deal/

There are over one million Slaves in Bahrain. President Obama is the biggest supporter of Slavery there. He keeps the US 5th Fleet warships docked there. Warship worship! The Obama-backed Fascist Bahraini Government Murders democracy supporters and Tortures journalists.

(Obama’s M.O.: Remember when cop-thugs fired flashbang grenades at Occupy Oakland emergency workers trying to aid a US Marine they’d shot in the face with a tear gas canister?!) Doctors and nurses who help victims of violent repression in Bahrain are themselves Tortured and then imprisoned for long sentences. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2011/02/18/our-international-shame-the-5th-fleet-quit-disgracing-the-us-and-get-the-hell-out/

US activists, including my friend Paki Wieland of the Witness Bahrain peace group, were gassed and arrested recently when they tried to document the Obama Administration’s Torture of healthcare workers and crackdown on democracy. (She and the other American observers are out of lock-up and safely back in the USA now.) http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/02/15/urgent-bahrain-action-needed-immediately-help-prevent-obamas-goons-from-further-torturing-us-rights-observers/

Of course, Slavery is always in the financial interest of corporate management, to the extent that corporations by law must seek maximum profit. And by extension, then, Slavery is in our nation’s interest when it profits large corporations, right? Here’s an attempt by and for a couple of pathetic disgusting War Criminals to explain that whatever the Slave state Bahrain does is always in our National Interest and cool with us, no matter what: Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron. http://www.newcivilisation.com/home/middle-east/obama-cameron-essential-interests-trump-empty-values

And, if being Slaves isn’t bad enough, Obama’s puppet’s forces have run pogroms against the Slaves. In the 21st Century. Pogroms! http://bikyamasr.com/52331/bahrain-commission-report-details-deadly-pogroms-against-migrant-workers/

Bookburning USA: Obama’s Traitor Troops Trash OWS Library as his EPA Awards Book-Burners for Outstanding Recycling

Bookburning USA: Obama’s Traitor Troops Trash OWS Library as his EPA Awards Book-Burners for Outstanding Recycling — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

According to two of President Obama’s most consistent supporters [Michael Moore and Keith Olbermann], the storm troopers who swept into Occupy camps yesterday Torturing protesters across the country were doing so under President Obama’s direction.

They clubbed and gassed peaceful protesters, destroyed their homes (shredded tents), and threw their world-famous library into dump trucks – garbage trucks. None of these Traitors who took part in these Acts of War against the American people has yet been charged or arrested.

When Rachel Maddow on MSNBC showed photos of some of the books displayed by the NYPD (Nazi York Police Department), she noted that the photo had prompted Occupy Wall Street librarians to ask “Where are the rest of our books?”

And, to rub our nose in his destruction of our books, and in his destruction of our Rights, last week President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) praised book-destruction company Better World Books and presented it with the EPA’s WasteWise Small Business Partner of the Year Award.

(What does the P in EPA stand for anyway? The EPA is P-ing on us again.)

The last time I reported on Better World Books’ disgraceful practice, they insisted that I let people know that they did not actually burn the thirty-five million books they’ve destroyed so far. The company did not tell me how they do destroy the books.

If the chosen method of book destruction is recycling it into paper, then an environmentally destructive coagulant must be purchased from DuPont in order to process that gathered paper scrap back into wood-pulp paper. In such cases, DuPont (a company whose CEO regularly meets with the President) profits off every book. DuPont is the worst climate and pollution villain on the planet. VP Joe Biden has for decades enjoyed a cozy relationship with DuPont, the largest tax payer in his home state of Delaware.

Book Burning USA Better World Books collects used books from universities, libraries and elsewhere, then destroys 50% of them, to make the enterprise profitable.

You’ll see in the interview below from Bloomberg TV that the fake hippie CEO of Better World admits destroying half of the 70 million books the company collected.

UN Security Council Votes Unanimously to Cover Up Obama-Saleh Yemen War Crimes, Maintain Murderous Regime, Help Dictator Escape Justice

UN Security Council Votes Unanimously to Cover Up Obama-Saleh Yemen War Crimes, Maintain Murderous Regime, Help Dictator Escape Justice — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

In this video from this morning’s Democracy Now!, newly crowned Nobel Peace Prize recipient Tawakkul Karman pleads for New Yorkers/Americans to join her protest at the UN at 3pm today. As one can read in the CNN link below, the Security Council passed the cover-up measure despite her protest.

http://www.democracynow.org/2011/10/21/exclusive_nobel_laureate_tawakkul_karman_on

http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/21/us/yemen-un-resolution/

The UN cover-up appears to be aimed at protecting dictators Ali Abdullah Saleh and Barack Obama from international prosecution for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity they committed which were revealed by Wikileaks, which exposed separate direct communications wherein Saleh Criminally Conspired with Barack Obama, US Secretary State Hillary Clinton, and then-Secretary of Defense David Petraeus (who is now director of the Central Intelligence Agency).

http://dazzlepod.com/cable/09SANAA1170/

Karman in the Democracy Now! video above decries the frequent Murders of peaceful protesters by Obama Death Squad (ODS) snipers still going on, and the ODS political Assassinations of Yemeni Journalists in the past two days and the past two weeks. Without mentioning Obama by name, she asserts that these Murders are atrocities.

In what looks like a direct threat against Karman in revenge for her winning of the Nobel Peace Prize last week, two days after the award, an ODS sniper Murdered a 20-year-old woman who was peacefully protesting at a large demonstration in Karman’s hometown Taiz. This marks the first time in Yemen that ODS has Assassinated a woman (though Obama Death Squad Assassins in Mexico routinely Murder women).

Speaking of cover-ups, 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkul Karman came on Democracy Now! this morning calling for people to come protest this outrage with her: This UN agreement prevents the investigation. It helps Saleh escape now; it helps Obama, Clinton, and Betray Us escape later. It keeps the same dictatorship in power, but changes the figurehead.

Here’s the cover-up: No US news source covered the protest, with the new Nobel laureate protesting the UN covering up our President’s War Crimes at the United Nations building in New York City. If it’s not in the news, maybe we can pretend it never happened. I’ll venture a guess that there was a demonstration, maybe even including Occupiers. I may never know.

Nobel Peace Prize to Tawakul Karman for Resisting Obama-Saleh Massacres of Peaceful Protesters, Premeditated Murders & Democracy Suppression

Nobel Peace Prize to Tawakul Karman for Resisting Obama-Saleh Massacres of Peaceful Protesters, Premeditated Murders & Democracy Suppression — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

This morning in Oslo, in a show of solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, and a direct slap in the face of the Obama Administration, the Norwegian Nobel Peace Prize Committee awarded the world’s top honor to Tawakul Karman for opposing President Obama’s:

  • ~~Massacres of Peaceful Protesters in Yemen and Bahrain;
  • ~~Premeditated Murder Program, carried out by Obama Death Squads (ODS) in Yemen, Bahrain, Honduras, Mexico, Pakistan, India, and elsewhere;
  • ~~Coward Drone Program, in which cowards in the US Military remotely Murder innocent children in nearly every Muslim nation in the world;
  • ~~Parking the US 5th Fleet war machine in Bahrain, thus supporting Slavery (56% of people in Bahrain are non-citizen Slaves) and Repression there;
  • ~~Cruel and criminal wavier of the Child Soldier Law in Yemen and elsewhere http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/obama-waives-child-soldier-ban-yemen-congo/story?id=14663930 (President Obama continues to claim that using child soldiers is “in our National Interest”);
  • ~~Taking of Political Prisoners;
  • ~~Suppression of Freedom of the Press;
  • ~~Suppression of Democracy.

Tawakul Karman is a Journalist, and the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Besides his Murders, she has long campaigned against President Obama’s taking of Political Prisoners, and against his attacks on Press Freedom in Yemen. Indeed, Karman herself was one of those Political Prisoners taken by President Obama’s Fascist forces in Yemen. http://lefthandofeminism.wordpress.com/2011/01/23/tawakul-karman-brave-muslim-feminist-arrested-in-yemen/

Two Liberian women share the Prize with her. A year ago, I urged the Nobel Committee to take action to draw attention to Obama’s massacres and Democracy Suppression in Yemen. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/08/19/nobel-prize-committee-do-the-right-thing/ One obvious aim of today’s award is to humiliate President Obama into ending his Atrocities against Yemeni civilians.

I have been writing about the Obama Administration’s War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity in Yemen and Bahrain here at FireDogLake for a long time. I usually get very little reaction or support. Today I feel vindicated and triumphant.

In Yemen, Obama’s Atrocities are carried out by the Government of his puppet Ali Abdullah Saleh. In Bahrain, the US puppet Royal Family owns more than one million slaves and brutalizes Shiites and Health Care Workers for the US.

The Nobel Prize Committee released the news when it can actually do the most good: Right now, over two million peaceful protesters are demonstrating in the street in Yemen, Mosaic reports today (on LinkTV).

Usually, when protesters march peacefully in Yemen, snipers trained by the US CIA massacre demonstrators, Murdering scores of them. The Yemeni Obama Death Squad (ODS) has done this several times, but Yemen has not had an assembly of millions like this before.

The ODS Murdered seven peaceful protesters in Tawakul Karman’s hometown Taiz two days ago, setting off the largest demonstration in the history of Yemen. http://www.almanar.com.lb/english/adetails.php?eid=30196&frid=23&seccatid=31&cid=23&fromval=1

If Obama orders or allows the massacre of millions or thousands of Yemenis, if he condones another Mass Murder in our names, “in our National Interest,” as the President puts it, we must hold him accountable. Premeditated Murder is a crime. It is not alright. Even for a Democrat.

(Below are some of my previous posts opposing those same practices for which Tawakul Karman’s opposition today won her the Nobel Peace Prize, plus some items from the FireDogLake news department, and from FDL’s Siun about the Bahrain situation, and others from FDL’s fairleft and emptywheel.)

Meeropol on Political Prisoners, Torture Victims, Whistle-Blowers, Press Freedom, IGLO Alternative Political Convention

11:19 am in Uncategorized by normanb

Meeropol on Political Prisoners (John Sinclair, Bradley Manning), Torture Victims (Manning), Whistle-Blowers (Julian Assange, Thomas Paine), Press Freedom (Jane Hamsher, Paine), the IGLO Alternative Political Convention — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

Tireless Human Rights activist Robert Meeropol spoke to the Thomas Paine Society in Amherst, Massachusetts, on January 29, 2011. Meeropol and his brother were small children when their parents Julius and Ether Rosenberg were executed by the United States. Officially, young Robert Meeropol’s mother was executed for typing. The execution of the Rosenbergs (primarily for their political beliefs, because they were Jewish, and to fire up the American Right Wing) is internationally considered one of the most important Crimes Against Humanity of the 20th Century.

The world was in dire straits four weeks ago, four days after Egypt’s Jan. 25 Revolultion began. It was just weeks after the January 2011 Assassination mayhem, and scant weeks before President Obama would order the Federal investigation of those shootings closed down. The speaker for the Thomas Paine Society talked of the things listed in the above headline. He noted that Meeropol’s appearance made this the largest meeting the TPS ever had.

Paine was an important Founding Father, pamphleteer, and political philosopher. He is best known for his pamphlet Common Sense, but was quite prolific. He was an important whistle-blower in the new republic.

The T. Paine Society’s speakers and Robert Meeropol and I all expressed the same concerns. I had just self-published a pamphlet on Manning-Assange-Hamsher-Wikileaks, and disseminated it among college students at the University of Massachusetts. Meeropol read my pamphlet, and signed it large, like John Hancock. I’ll reproduce it below.

I told Mr. Meeropol that legendary political prisoner John Sinclair was coming to Amherst-Northampton this April to participate in the IGLO radical political Convention, and to speak and perform at our annual  Extravaganja pro-Marijuana rally on the Amherst town common. “I know John,” he assured me.

Meeropol said he may not be able to speak at the rally, which will be Saturday and Sunday April 16 and 17. He asked me to be in touch with him about it, and about him sending a statement or Skyping the rally or Convention, if he can’t be there.

IGLO stands for Independents, Greens, Libertarians, and Others. (Others includes Democrats, Republicans, unregistered, et cetera.) Most people and parties in our nation agree on three principles that the two corporate parties eschew: (1) Ending the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; (2) ending Prohibition; and (3) restoring Human Rights/Civil Rights.

Those missing Rights in need of restoration include many parts of the Bill of Rights, Habeas Corpus, Geneva Conventions, Bill of Attainder, Ex Post Facto, Abolition of Slavery. The IGLO Convention will open April 14, 2011, in Northampton, Massachusetts, with a Keynote speech, and then, the very first Presidential Debate of the new election cycle. Candidates who agree on the three guiding principles above are invited. Three have already accepted.

My pamphlet’s statement signed by Robert Meeropol:

Urge President Obama to HALT the Torture of Wiki-Leaks Hero Bradley Manning!

White House Comment Line: 202-456-1111

The Tunisian people overthrew their Government a few days ago, after Wiki-Leaks revealed crimes of their leaders and ours. The Obama Administration has ordered US college students not to read Wiki-Leaks, but you can still read about the Torture of political prisoner Bradley Manning, the US Army Private accused of heroic information leaking that revealed crimes of our leaders and leaders of other countries.

Torture is a Crime Against Humanity. Torture is un-American and inhuman. Punishing someone based on suspicion is unconstitutional. Sunday (1/23/11), the US Military arrested Journalist Jane Hamsher and Manning’s friend David House, who together revealed Manning’s Torture to the world.

The Obama Administration has warned US college students that they face Government retaliation if they comment on Wiki-Leaks, but you can still comment on Torture. Urge President Obama: Halt ALL Torture and Assassinations of citizens. Urge the President to turn over all Torturers to the International Court of Justice in the Hague to be prosecuted for Crimes Against Humanity. Ask a non-student to read Wiki-Leaks for you. You’ll be shocked.

Our International Shame: The 5th Fleet: Quit Disgracing the US and Get the Hell Out

7:26 am in Uncategorized by normanb

Our International Shame: The 5th Fleet: Quit Disgracing the US and Get the Hell Out — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

Now let me get this straight: President Obama has to keep letting his hired thugs murder pro-democracy demonstrators because Bahrain is “home to our 5th Fleet.” Torturing doctors, reporters, students, all that is cool too, I guess.

http://news.firedoglake.com/2011/02/17/bahraini-massacre-met-with-little-more-than-concern-from-us/

http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2011/02/17/tiananmen-update-obama-thugs-torture-journalists-activists-and-murder-pro-democracy-protesters-in-yemen-bahrain/

And in Yemen, there’s a Muslim American who’s suspected of inspiring a fake bomb. So, then, Obama must allow US money to pay his goons to Torture and murder peaceful citizens and crush democracy there, right?

Yemen wasn’t even a real country, it was imposed by the US. That’s why it has secessionist movements in both North and South Yemen, they were two different countries until 20 years ago. They are ethnically and culturally quite different from each other.

The 5th Fleet needs to be in the Persian Gulf, we’re told, to help remove Oil that rightfully belongs in the ground, but if it’s out of the ground, it belongs to people in the Middle East, not us.

The 5th Fleet was formed in 1944. The United Nations was founded in 1945. One UN International Law removed from the charter before final ratification was the passage that would have made Slavery a Crime against Humanity. That provision was taken out because of the prevalence of Slavery on the Arabian Peninsula and in the Persian Gulf. They decided that where we get our Oil trumps whether or not Slavery is a Crime.

Despite the fact that the UN passed on performing its duty, Slavery IS a Crime against Humanity, one that Obama and the 5th Fleet carry out to our eternal disgrace.

And those who lie about being “Liberal” or “Progressive” or “favoring Human Rights” sit around calling President Obama “our candidate” or “our crook,” wimpishly claiming that Obama’s brand of brutality and Fascism is the only thing that can save us from the even worse Fascism favored by stupid people who believe that dinosaurs walked with humans.

Most people only think about the Slaves when they see the camel races. That was an easy fix. Now robots have replaced the Slave jockeys, tiny boys from Darfur, Bangladesh, Pakistan, or India. Now that the camel jockeys are out of sight, Slavery is ignored. The Bahrain Government claimed it was ending Slavery two years ago…

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/05/06/bahrain-ending-slavery-fo_n_197775.html

…then six months later, Russia busted a Slave shipment:
http://en.rian.ru/russia/20090212/120103368.html

If you are an American, please examine the Slavery paradigm that Pres. Obama and the 5th Fleet are endorsing. As you’ll find out if you read on, more than half the people in Bahrain are Slaves, most of them from India. Most non-Slaves are Shiites, and thereby face discrimination from the Sunni minority. But most Sunnis are not in the tribe of the ruling dynasty, so they too face discrimination. (If you’re a Democrat, you might want to read these links later, or not at all, they’re pretty sickening.)

http://gulfnews.com/news/gulf/bahrain/invisible-victims-of-trafficking-1.264267

http://bahraini.tv/2006/08/07/human-trafficking-claimed/

And now the Obama thugs are massacring the pro-democracy demonstrators, as well as Torturing doctors trying to treat their victims and journalists trying to expose their murderous barbarism. Some of those teargassed students will never recover.

http://my.firedoglake.com/athena1/2011/02/18/the-un-should-be-prepared-to-step-in-to-defend-the-people-of-bahrain/#recommend-40-29827

I can think of a couple of reasons why the US supports Slavery and civilian massacres. One is Robert Gates, and the other is George Mitchell. Secretary of Defense Gates is heavily invested in Oil, and the US Military is by far the biggest buyer of petroleum in the world. If Gates tried to make peace, he’d lose money. But don’t worry, there’s not much chance of that. If the US Military switched to clean fuel, Russia would lose power and Iran would go broke – the only way Iran can afford to work on its Nuclear program at all is if the US Military keeps buying Oil.

George Mitchell is President Obama’s Middle East “Peace” Envoy. His business partner was convicted of Bribery in Azerbaijan, trying to get that country’s Oil. Think of the enormous dishonesty it took for President Obama to hire two men which such flagrant Conflicts of Interest over Oil, and then to install them between US and peace.

Madoff’s Stolen Ponzi Loot Funneled to Obama Campaign Through Daley

6:27 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

The Daily Machine

Madoff’s Stolen Ponzi Loot Funneled to Obama Campaign Through Daley — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)


Nearly $1 million of Bernard Madoff’s stolen Ponzi-scheme profits went to elect US President Barack Obama. JP Morgan Chase paid it directly to his campaign, and President Obama just appointed JPMC’s executive William Daley (of the infamous Daley Machine) to be his new White House Chief of Staff. Daley himself skated with $7.6 million in the Madoff swindle. Yep, he just made off with it. Morgan Chase made $1 billion. Hillary Clinton got some, but gave it back, and the President’s new “Competitiveness” nominee Jeffrey Imelt got plenty.

You can’t make this stuff up.

According to OpenSecrets, William Daley’s JP Morgan Chase gave $695,132 to the 2008 Obama Presidential campaign:
http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/contrib.php?cycle=2008&cid=n00009638

Through recent revelations…

http://www.istockanalyst.com/article/viewarticle/articleid/4864051

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/04/madoff-jpmorgan-chase_n_818591.html

…I learned that despite the fact that Daley’s Morgan Chase knew Bernie Madoff was running a [$65 billion] Ponzi scheme, JPMC conspired to keep the crimes secret until after Obama’s November 2008 election (an apparent Obstruction of Justice), because JP Morgan Chase made at least $1 billion (that we know of) on the scheme. Morgan Chase spent much of that money promoting Obama.

Firedoglake’s masaccio was onto it when it happened:
http://firedoglake.com/2009/05/03/how-chase-bank-made-money-with-madoff/

No one stopped Madoff until December 2008, after Barack Obama was elected, albeit just a few weeks after.

On Daley’s appointment in January 2011, Huffington Post said “President Barack Obama’s next Chief of Staff holds more than $7.6 million worth of stock in JP Morgan Chase, according to a regulatory filing …William M. Daley, vice chairman at JP Morgan Chase, holds 175,678 shares in the $2.1 trillion behemoth, the nation’s second-largest bank by assets. Daley headed the firm’s Corporate Responsibility division, which included oversight of the firm’s lobbyists and relations with government officials.”

This means that Daley still has Ponzi loot: His $7.6 million, out of JPMC’s $1 billion, out of Madoff’s $65 billion.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/10/william-daley-jp-morgan-stock_n_807161.html

But the Obama Administration’s dirty dealings with Madoff don’t end there, not by a long shot! Madoff gave $50,000 to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and at least $600,000 to lobbyists:

“Madoff Investment Securities made campaign contributions totaling $372,100, with about 89 percent of those funds directed to Democrats, according to OpenSecrets.org, the Web site of the Center for Responsive Politics.” (That’s how PoliticalTicker put it, but the OpenSecrets headline says Madoff spent $1 million.)

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/12/17/madoff-was-major-democratic-campaign-contributor/

Much of that political campaign money went for and continues to go for buying ads on NBC and MSNBC, the head honcho of which is GE Chairman Jeffrey Imelt, whom President Obama just appointed to head his new White House Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Competitiveness?! According to Forbes, GE is the world’s second-largest company, after JP Morgan Chase. In the Obama Administration, we see Conflict of Interest running off the scale, but Imelt’s MSNBC just keeps MSNBC-ing it.

MSNBC-ing” is the type of propaganda that tries to make it look like the Obama gang of crooks is on our side, our good guys, looking out for our interests. It’s as if, like the Egyptian propaganda claiming that Mubarak’s Suleiman goon squad is needed to hold back the evil Muslims, the White House wants us to think that our crooks are the only possible heroes who can save us from the bad Republican Cheney TeaBag Beck.

So, not only did MSNBC (in a partisan move) refuse to air Michele Bachmann’s alternative State of the Union response (as it had aired Senator Obama’s alternative State of the Union response in 2006), Chris Matthews (apparently trying to out-juvenile the newly removed Keith Olbermann) called Ms. Bachmann a “Balloon Head!” and told her “Go back to grammar school!”

At the exact same time that the President tapped Imelt to “oversee” “competitiveness” (or overlook the lack thereof), Imelt’s firm dumped Olbermann, and at the same time Comcast announced its working relationship with MSNBC (further limiting competition, but making profit for the Administration’s cronies) … as Rayne pointed out:

http://my.firedoglake.com/rayne/2011/01/23/its-not-a-sale-or-a-merger-but-a-joint-venture-comcast-and-ge-will-share-corporatist-mouthpiece-nbc/

Speaking of Conflict of Interest: Both GE and Morgan Chase are heavily involved in the Nuclear industry and the Wind industry, two of the dirtiest forms of energy generation. When Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show comes on, a Wind Farm masquerading as Clean Energy steps up to fight for GE/JPMC energy profit, and supposedly against the bad Republican Cheney TeaBag Beck. The President frequently lies about both Wind and Nuclear being “Clean.” He claims that both are free of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, and that they therefore help fight Global Warming. This is completely false.

For details on the emissions, use the fdl search window and search “normanb ghg nuclear wind.” Wind energy causes massive emissions of the worst GHG known, Sulfur Hexafluoride, or “Air Jordan.” One pound of SF6 warms our planet more than 17 tons of Carbon Dioxide (CO2); and 20 million pounds of it are made every year. The so-called “Smart Grid” is stupid, but, hey, it makes money for the President’s men.

Nuclear Energy causes massive emissions of Nitrous Oxide, which is 310 times as bad as CO2. Yet President Obama had the EPA reclassify it officially as “Clean Energy,” just as he did for “Clean” Coal. President Obama even appeared on a TV commercial for Clean Coal, just weeks after taking office, just days after the Coen Brothers had released a widely circulated commercial reminding us all that Clean Coal doesn’t exist.

Athough lying about climate and energy causes disease epidemics, insect infestations, and environmental devastation, even so, President Obama still doesn’t mind lying about climate and energy when it profits his allies. Just ask BP:
http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2011/02/02/new-orleans-judge-rules-that-obama-ken-feinberg-bp-lied-about-kfs-neutrality-orders-kf-bp-to-stop-lying/

So, who’s keeping score here? Madoff stole $65 billion –> then, with Obama in the White House, and with his appointees in charge of regulating things, less than $10 billion got paid back to the poor set-up victims of the famous Madoff-Morgan Chase-Daley-Obama-Imelt Ponzi Scheme.

Where’s the rest of the stolen money? Well, President Obama’s sitting on $695,132 of it; or he was before spending it on Imelt’s and other networks’ commercials for the 2008 campaign. Secretary of State Clinton (who posed as an opposing candidate during the campaign) got $50,000; Chief of Staff William Daley has $7.6 million; his company JCMC, the President’s 6th-highest contributor, got $1 billion. I’ll bet others on the President’s top contributors list Made Off with some too! (i.e. GE, who gave half a million dollars!)

Madoff’s family officially got to keep $2.5 million of the stolen funds, but I suspect more of that money is still somewhere corrupting our political system. And Madoff’s son conveniently got dead a few weeks ago, conveniently partially covering up the White House connection. And somehow those “investigating” the killing quickly called it “suicide.” Never mind who’s behind the curtain. No reason to investigate this.

Oh, and let’s remember that JP Morgan Chase didn’t hire Daley because he’s a famous banker; he’s not. They hired him for the Organized Crime connection: They hired him to pull strings for them politically. And they sure got what they paid for: A billion dollars in stolen funds, out of which they only had to give the Obama cartel a few million. A body or two along the way. Banker plus Gangster equals Bankster.

“Madoff founded the Wall Street firm Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC in 1960, and was its chairman until his arrest on December 11, 2008 … JP Morgan Chase & Co. may have also benefited from the scheme – through interest and fees charged – to the tune of a billion dollars.”

http://money.cnn.com/2009/04/24/news/newsmakers/madoff.fortune/index.htm

Along with the family of one of President Obama’s major financial appointees (Mary Schapiro, whom President Obama appointed to head the Securities and Exchange Commission), Bernie Madoff started the NASDAQ Stock Exchange in 1971 as National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD). Madoff was its President and Chairman. The economy collapsed and the President of the Stock Exchange made off with $65 billion at the same time, and at the same time, more than $1 billion were being funneled to the cronies of and the Presidential campaign of the winning candidate, Barack Obama, who had just appointed Madoff’s partner’s kid:

http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2008/12/17/sec-nominee-has-madoff-connection/

“Two years after Madoff’s $65 billion fraud was revealed, its victims are trying to move on. It was good news indeed to hear over the holidays that Irving Picard, the trustee hired by the Securities Investor Protection Corp., or SIPC, has recovered $9.8 billion so far – much more than some had expected. Yet many of Madoff’s neediest victims might never benefit from Picard’s settlements, and in fact some are being sued to give back gains from the sceme, funds already spent on retirement or taxes.”

http://www.businessweek.com/investor/content/jan2011/pi20110111_367252.htm

February 10, 2009, a few days after taking office, President Obama said “There are a lot of banks that are actually pretty well-managed – JP Morgan being a good example … I don’t think [CEO Jamie Dimon] should be punished for dong a pretty good job managing an enormous portfolio.”

http://www.fool.com/investing/dividends-income/2009/02/11/obama-endorses-jpmorgan.aspx

Well, Madoff’s victims have only been compensated 15% of what they lost. Immediately after JPMC gave $7 hundred thousand to Obama, and Madoff gave $1 billion to JPMC, all to help to get BO elected, then President-elect Obama, when the Madoff Ponzi news broke, said “In the last few days, the alleged scandal at Madoff Investment Securities has reminded us yet again of how badly reform is needed when it comes to the rules and regulations that govern our markets…

“…Charities that invested in Madoff could end up losing savings on which millions depend – a massive fraud that was made possible in part because the regulators who were assigned to oversee Wall Street dropped the ball. And if the financial crisis has taught us anything, it’s that this failure of oversight and accountability doesn’t just harm individuals involved; it has the potential to devastate our entire economy.”

http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2008/12/18/4423447-obama-on-madoff-scandal-rick-warren

Indeed, Mr. President indeed. Give the money back to the destitute widows and orphans that your gang helped to steal it from. Order Daley and Imelt to give back theirs too. If memory serves, Hillary Clinton has already returned the Madoff contribution, but what about that $6 hundred thousand to the lobbyists? And after you give it back, come clean: Tell the truth about what you know about the crimes, and make Daley and Imelt do the same.

So, the profits from the biggest theft that ever happened helped elect our current President. GE is pouring even more into lobbying since the 2008 elections. The co-conspirators in this story, General Electric, Morgan Chase, and Madoff, together poured more than $1 billion into campaigns and political lobbying over the past few years, and lots of it went right back to GE and Imelt through purchase of airtime on MSNBC. And our President is in cahoots with these thieves. You just can’t make this stuff up.

And you Democrats out there, in the Congress, and in the blogosphere and other media: Don’t you now have a responsibility to do something about this? Go ahead: Do what Democrats do.
