Child Murderer-in-Chief Announces Hateful Cuts, Issues Veiled Warning Threat to First Graders — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
Today it’s not just me: Glenn Greenwald and George Monbiot both called President Obama a Child Murderer. Obama has killed 9 times as many children with Drones as the Sandy Hook shooter did, and has shown NO remorse. In fact, he laughs and jokes about killing children with Coward Drones.
In Hateful anti-child Propaganda [reminiscent of 1984's newspeak], President Obama calls the richer half of the country “the Middle Class.” He calls the emergency life support system that’s keeping poor children alive “entitlements,” with its negative connotation, calculated to make the listener feel that those lazy poor kids are not entitled to anything. Let ‘em wither!
When people are in such dire straits that they need Government assistance just to stay alive, those who are turning off the feeding tubes know they’re killing some of their victims. President Obama knows that further squeezing the poorest of the poor at this critical juncture will kill children. So, I guess he’ll get another big laugh.
If he has studied history and economics, he knows that cutting aid to the very poor is likely to cripple our faltering economy, and to ramp up our current Recession into a devastating decades-long Depression.
Let me mention the obvious: Money and influence from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other corporate interests control our politicians to a large extent. I think of it as Bribery.
Obama had his spokesperson Jake “the Snake” Carney say that the President supports Oil billionaire Dianne Feinstein’s fake Assault Weapons ban, with 900 exceptions in it. Of course, if Obama and Feinstein were actually serious about limiting gun violence, they would be trying to prosecute Attorney General Eric Holder for supplying weapons to Drug Cartels in Mexico that were then used to Murder cops in this country. Instead they’re Covering Up Operation Fast and Furious. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Holder#Operation_Fast_and_Furious
And in a most troubling development, the President (and other politicians hoping to sweep this shooting under the rug) are pointing at mental health and autism, as if to say: “We don’t have insufficient Gun Control laws in this country, we have insufficient Autism Control laws!” This veiled threat means that he won’t speak out forcefully for banning handguns and Assault Weapons.
It means that school children in this country may soon be as traumatized as President Obama’s victims in Pakistan and Yemen and Somalia, wondering if they’ll be next, if their classroom will win this month’s “Lottery.” I say Obama should not let Congress break for holidays until our children are safe and Assault Weapons and handguns are banned.
Handguns and Assault Weapons are made for Murdering people. They have no legitimate purpose. It is possible that a person buying a gun will use it to protect himself, but it is 100 times more likely that he will Murder with it. The gun seller knows that, and he knows that the buyer is 300 times more likely to kill himself with the gun than to protect himself with it, no matter what he says is the purpose of his purchase.
So, the Obama Administration is not trying to limit gun violence against children. Here’s how you can tell. Australia had a school massacre problem. They ended it by confiscating the offending guns. That’s all it took. Immediately the massacres stopped completely. There hasn’t been another one since then; and that’s 16 years. Australia had lots of gun nuts too, just like we do. But they handled it. With a little less Hatred of children, we could get this done right away. http://www.democracynow.org/2012/12/18/new_town_to_newtown_how_96
VIDEOS of Obama Death Squad Committing Genocide & Torture Against Black People in Libya — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
When I was a kid in the 1960s, the teacher showed us a pile of bodies in a photo taken at Auschwitz concentration camp. Shocking. Terrifying. Then I thought Genocide was something from the past. I though it would stay in the past. I wasn’t worried about it.
Prevalent propaganda pounded into my head the horrors of the “Japanese Water Torture.” Everybody in the country needed to know graphic details of just how horrible its victims felt under that Torture. That rationalized (if not justified) the fact that we were Executing War Criminals for Waterboarding. I thought back then that we were through with Water Torture too. That’s what I thought. When I was a kid. Kids!
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: But now that I am a man, I must put away childish things. Like nostalgia.
Look, I wish I didn’t have to tell you this. Obviously from the lack of coverage, nobody wants to tell you. This is only on a need-to-know basis. And I know you don’t want to know about it. It’s so much easier to just look away. But that teacher showed me that pile of bodies. And now, I have something to show you.
LOOK! You can no longer say you don’t know about it. From this day forward you will work to end the Libyan Genocide, or you will failto do so.
What just happened?! Arab Spring got into full swing, a chance for real liberation sweeping the world, talk of an “American Spring;” then US President Barack Obama warned us that a terrible Genocide was about to happen in Libya. What he didn’t tell us was that HE was about to carry it out. I call that a lie of omission. Now, somebody needs to get over there and put that genie back in that bottle, fast!
Obama called for a No-Fly Zone, another lie of omission, though Obama’s Defense Secretary, Republican Oil billionaire Robert Gates, at the time cautioned us that a No-Fly Zone IS a war. Gates was out of that job real quick.
The US led the war effort against Libya, supplying most of the personnel and more than 90% of the sorties. Qaddafi’s communistic habit of spending Oil money on the country’s needs had irked the wrong people: That is, it had the people who control the President of the United States: Obama then led an international feeding frenzy to steal the Libya’s Oil for Wall Street, Banksters, Chemical companies, and Fossil Fools.
Fighting over that Oil hurt Libyan Oil production and thus drove prices up temporarily. The US and its allies froze Libyan bank accounts and stole the money too. And all the while, Syria was consciously trying to imitate Obama’s Atrocities in Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Somalia.
And – I must say this – though you’re all too young to get the allusion – unless you study History – Chamberlain’s Britain, Vichy France, and Quisling Norway did more than just appease this madman. (Those of us who study History are condemned to watch the world repeat it.)
Now, our side is lynching and beheading people. Libya banned Slavery in 1853, more than a decade before the US did; though Slavery persisted in Libya, it was finally abolished in the 1890s. Now, with Obama’s takeover there, it’s back.
Our President allowed the whole world to see our shame: We’re not a democracy with a rule of law: We [US] Tortured Qaddafi to death for the cameras. This continues to make Americans mentally ill. It will never be OK until we have a Truth Commission look into our collective American experience of Torturing Muammar Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein to death. Torturing people to death makes us insane.
You can look away if you want. Just keep looking away. But if you do, things WILL get worse! A lot worse. Enough small talk. Are you ready for some football?
Let’s start out light: A witness just back with video reveals that Obama-led NATO bombing sorties targeted hospitals and schools. At other hospitals and schools, victorious gunmen from our side barged in and killed Blacks.
And, lest you think that its over, here’s a report from this week: Black people massacred in a concentration camp.
An Al Jazeera reporter was Murdered for covering a Black people in Libya demonstrating against Genocide.
Here pro-Obama propaganda calls Black men Qaddafi’s Mercenaries: You can watch this one; a crowd of children even gathered to watch Obama’s Mercenaries Torture these two Black men to death in public. As the scene opens, one is already dead, and you can watch the other one’s last seconds of life.
And speaking of the last seconds of life, here are hundreds of Black Africans seconds before Obama’s Misurata Death Squad Murders them.
Here’s a bunch of bodies.
Here, President Obama’s Misurata Death Squad Tortures Black Libyans to death by marching them on a trail of tears across the Sahara Desert. These are Murders for Oily profits, in the US President’s name.
Now, watch Obama’s Death Squad lynch a Black man.
Another Torture Murder: ODS beheads this Black man.
Here’s the ODS massacring a whole neighborhood, mainly Black women and children.
Watch the ODS Torture bound prisoners. What a bunch of cowards!
This map shows locations of massacres. It also shows the Obama Death Squad (ODS) rounding up and abusing Blacks. It shows bound Murdered Black prisoners.
The world has known about this for a long time, though you’ve been kept in the dark. Here’s a report on the lynchings and Libyan Genocide from last April.
And it’s not just Libyan nationals: Black Africans from other countries are being rounded up, Tortured, killed.
Here are some things you can do to help the situation in Libya:
1. Spread the news: We are the media now; get the word out about Libya; share this article;
2. Contact the the shows that look like they’re news and claim to be Progressive: Send Cenk Uygur, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Jennifer Granholm, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert a copy of this article: Ask them not to Cover Up this story any longer;
3. Contact your Senators and Congresspersons about it;
4. Call the White House and demand that President Obama halt the Genocide against Black people in Libya immediately, 202-456-1111;
5. Urge the International Criminal Court at the Hague, Netherlands, to fully empower Spanish Judge Baltasar Garzón to indict US President Barack Obama under Article 15 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court for Crimes Against Humanity: US-led Genocide against the Black people in Libya. email@example.com
Anger over the US/NATO burning of Qurans in Afghanistan sparked demonstrations sweeping across the Muslim world, as protests erupted against the US-Government-approved Hate Crime this weekend in Pakistan, Bangladesh, the Palestinian Territories, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Yemen, Somalia, Egypt, and elsewhere.
Instead of prosecuting the War Criminals, US President Barack Obama apologized for the desecration. By the way, Obama claims he can order Muslims Murdered anytime he wants, anywhere in the world, without evidence, and for no reason. He has authorized the Murder of Muslim children in Somalia and Yemen, calling them “pirates” and “masterminds.” He has authorized Assassinations and pogroms.
You may remember that when Bahraini troops fired on peaceful protesters last February, as doctors and nurses tried to help the injured, they too were fired upon. This is part of President Obama’s M.O.: Remember Occupy Oakland? Obama’s goons shot a US Marine in the face with a Tear Gas canister, nearly killing him, then threw flash-bang grenades to prevent other demonstrators from helping their victim. For treating the injured Bahraini protesters, the doctors and nurses received lengthy sentences. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/sep/29/bahrain-protester-death-sentence/
The immediate problems began in January 2012, when the United States lost two Wars:
~On January 1, the US combat forces had to be out of Iraq, a consequence of the Surrender Agreement President George W. Bush signed with Iraq during his last weeks in office: The Surrender required that remaining soldiers be restricted to base unless requested by the Iraqis, and that they leave Iraq at the end of 2011. Obama did everything he could to talk or trick the Iraqis into letting the US just stay there, and not keep its word. No dice.
But the people Obama is now Torturing with Tear Gas and Murdering with Poison Gas in Bahrain had nothing to do with that War. They are angry over a Hate Crime in Afghanistan which Obama has now Conspired to Cover Up. He’s shirking his duty: He refuses to do anything about the Atrocity. http://islamtimes.org/vdcepz8z7jh8wni.1kbj.txt
I lived through the loss of a War before: The Vietnam War. I know: TV news hasn’t announced that we lost these last two Wars yet. But they will, after they get us into the next two. Everyone will realize we lost, within a few years, just like with Vietnam: When the US retreated – fled Saigon – propaganda called it “Vietnamization” – letting the Vietnamese, or the Afghans or the Iraqis, handle their own defense.
And “Vietnamization” is exactly the word General David Petraeus used in Iraq on December 13, 2003, at his press conference announcing the capture of Saddam Hussein. He said it was time for “Vietnamization” in the Iraq War. That means we lost; and the Military knew we lost the Iraq War way back in 2003, but they just let the killing continue. Because it was making profits for Oil companies and Wall Street.
And – excuse me while researching Obama’s Atrocities makes me throw up, I’ll be right back – I’ve been writing about President Obama’s crimes against the Bahraini people for more than a year now, but I usually haven’t gotten into as much detail as I’m about to. (I’m a Torture victim too, so this is hard for me.) If you still belong to the Democratic Party, perhaps you should quit now, or at least take at least some responsibility for this:
Nearly three months ago, December 7, 2011, the World Organization Against Torture’s (OMCT) and the International Federation for Human Rights’ (FIDH) joint project – the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders – unleashed a desperate demand and plea for emergency help ending the Obama Administration-sponsored Bahraini attacks and Assassinations against Human Rights activists. http://www.omct.org/human-rights-defenders/urgent-interventions/bahrain/2011/12/d21549/
“The Observatory has been informed by reliable sources about the death threats made by a former official from the State Security Services against Mr. Mohammed Al-Maskati, President of the Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights (BYSHR), Mr. Nabeel Rajab, President of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights (BCHR) and FIDH Secretary General, and Mr. Yousef Al-Mahafdha, a member of BCHR.”
Why are they so desperate?! Why was I so desperate when I wrote about Paki in custody in Bahrain? Well, for one thing, there’s the case of Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, co-founder of the BCHR. Until last February, he was Middle East and North Africa Protection Coordinator with Front Line Defenders (of the International Foundation for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders). He’s an International Adviser in the Business and Human Rights Resource Center led by former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson. http://www.hrw.org/news/2011/04/09/bahrain-free-prominent-opposition-activist
You can read more about him in the Wikipedia entry, but for now, know this: On President Obama’s watch, April 9, 2011, US-equipped masked Bahraini security police invaded al-Khawaja’s house in a warrantless search and Tortured him there in front of his daughter for 45 minutes, until he was unconscious, causing a gaping head wound. Of course his daughter was assaulted too when she tried to stop his Torture. She said her father’s blood left a wide trail as Obama’s goons dragged him down the stairs and out the door.
Locked up in Obama’s Bahrain, al-Khawaja’s Torture got worse. A lot worse. He was repeatedly gang raped by masked security police. To avoid another gang rape, he intentionally smashed his already wounded head, so he would be unconscious and hospitalized. His jaw bones were smashed. He’s had extensive surgery for his head wound, and he will need a lot more. His face is broken at least four places. He is sentence to Life.
Is that the kind of change that you can believe in?! Go Democrats!
Al-Khawaja’s two sons-in-law were Tortured and arrested in the raid too, and a third son-in-law, Muhammad al-Maskati, President of the Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights, at the house at the time doing his job monitoring Human Rights violations, was himself Tortured on the spot. Since March 10, 2011, websites and messages have called for the Murders of the three Human Rights activists: Al-Khawaja, al-Maskati, and Nabeel Rajab. http://byshr.org/
I hope to have Human Rights activist Paki Wieland herself here at the computer soon to answer your questions about the situation LIVE. Possibly even today during this post, though I wrote the article during the night and haven’t contacted her about it. I will also upload the video of her aforementioned press conference soon.
There are some things you can do to help the situation in Bahrain:
1. Spread the news: We are the media now; get the word out about Bahrain; share this article;
2. Contact the the shows that look like they’re news and claim to be Progressive: Send Cenk Uygur, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Jennifer Granholm, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert a copy of this article: Ask them not to Cover Up this story;
3. Contact your Senators and Congresspersons about it;
4. Call the White House and demand that President Obama stop Murdering Bahrainis with Poisonous Gas, 202-456-1111;
5. Urge the International Criminal Court at the Hague, Netherlands, to fully empower Spanish Judge Baltasar Garzón to indict US President Barack Obama and Sheikh Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifa (the Bahraini King) under Article 15 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court for Crimes Against Humanity: Their Atrocities in Bahrain against the Bahraini people, their Atrocities against more than one million Slaves held there, and their Atrocities against the foreign Peace Observers like Paki Wieland. firstname.lastname@example.org
