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
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. US-backed Al Qaida mercenaries have stuffed Libyan flags into Black people’s mouths, and are forcing them to eat the flags.
And here are more Torture videos, and background information, if you’re not sick enough from what you’ve already read and seen. Firedoglake.com is one of the only US media outlets covering the Libya situation, instead of Covering it Up.
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.
It is a propaganda campaign, a ruse, an attempt to Cover Up, rationalize, legitimize, and ‘justify’ the Intrigues and Murders by the Obama Death Squads (ODS) in Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, Central and South America, and island nations.
With aid from Intelligence, this video about a minor African warlord suddenly went viral, just in time. So far, the Cover-Up is working.
Millions of mentally ill individuals are now promoting the pro-Assassination video, and sending zillions of dollars to invisible children! How do we know that they are mentally ill? Only the mentally ill join lynch mobs:
Even if they were sane before they signed on to the Murder Conspiracy, once they threw their support behind it, each of them consciously decided to Murder Mr. Kony, who is Black … believe me, while they are participating in the lynch mob, each of them is certifiably violently insane.
I’ve been sad to see some here at FireDogLake passing along lynch mob info without forcefully opposing it. Try to remember, killing people is wrong. Jesus even said so. Here’s an exposé of Kony 2012. [This is soundtrack only, so (if you're a multi-tasker) you can play the sound on another tab as you read on.] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nE4Z_iUTuw8
Get with the program! Get with the group! Get with the mob!
Kony 2012 swamped the news, it was all over! You know what else was in the news? A stupid, relatively meaningless Republican race that nobody cares about. The Republicans aren’t even trying to win, because they know they could never elect somebody as far-Right as Obama: Oh, they keep pretending they don’t like him, and keep running against him, but the far-Right Republicans have never had it so good!
Rick Santorum is just jumping up and down waving his arms around screaming ‘I’m the Stupid candidate! I’m the anti-environment candidate! I’m the dangerous candidate! If you don’t vote for Obama, then you’reStupid!‘ Obama is truly the most effective Republican President since Grant.
What is Covered Up: Meanwhile Vice President Joe Biden was down in Central America palling around with the world’s most Murderous monster, Honduran Dictator “Pinochet” Lobo, boss of the most active and notorious Obama Death Squad.
Pinochet Lobo’s ODS Murdered at least 20 journalists and 75 lawyers in Honduras during the run-up to Biden’s visit. Reporters were slaughtered throughout the region, in what can only be described as a bloodbath. (That article’s coming, and I’ll link at the end of this one.)
Obama Death Squads also Murdered at least 20 more journalists in Mexico and throughout the region. I don’t yet have stats on lawyer Murders in Mexico and the rest of Central America.
All authorities see Agosto Pinochet as a horrible bloody monster. And it is Pinochet’s career that Lobo’s Obama Death Squad seeks to emulate and duplicate in triplicate. Obama and Biden and Clinton must stop supporting these Assassinations by Pinochet Lobo’s ODS.
Obama used the Kony old news to ‘legitimize’ his invasion of Uganda, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and recently “independent” South Sudan, five months ago in October 2011.
And, here’s some disgusting pro-Murder propaganda directly from the US Government, President Obama’s Propaganda Minister Jay Carney expressing the Obama Administration’s support for the propaganda effort.
Nearly five thousand people have been reported lynched in the US. 73% of them have been Black. So far.
There are of course the obvious parallels in the Kony lynch mob to our collective insanity when we the American people joined in bloodthirsty lynch mobs against dark-skinned Muslims like Dictator Saddam Hussein and that terrible TV star Osama bin Laden.
Oh, yeah, and the lynch mob that killed that poor Black Somali child trying to protect African resources – you know, the kid that President Obama called a “pirate” and ordered him shot. He might have been a Muslim too.
But I am struck by two other parallels.
I made a pilgrimage to Rosewood, Florida, with my partner and chicks in tow, a decade-and-a-half ago. But there is no Rosewood, Florida. You can go there, but there’s no there there. Not anymore.
We looked at what isn’t left of Rosewood, then we got the hell out of there; because, well, I had my family with me, and to this day not only are Black people still not welcome in that part of Florida, but pilgrims and sympathetic gawkers at the site of the Atrocity are definitely not allowed either.
The world’s first viral video, Birth of a Nation with its heroes the Ku Klux Klan, swept the nation like a storm in 1915. Democratic President Woodrow Wilson of Virginia watched it, and said it was “So true!”
What was true [according to the film] was President Ulysses S. Grant had unjustly occupied the South to enforce Voting Rights, Civil Rights, and Human Rights during Reconstruction after the Civil War. The film said that after the evil Grant was out of office, the KKK came in and freed the South from the carpetbaggers.
The film said the problem with universal Civil Rights is that Black people are unequal savages! Black men were raping White women, the viral video said. Immediately after the film’s debut, the KKK re-formed at Stone Mountain Georgia and lynched a Jew.
Thousands of Blacks were lynched throughout the country over the next decade-and-a-half. Somebody in Rosewood saw the movie, or heard about it, or knew about the fad.
Out of many Racist incidents in Florida in the early 1920s, Wikipedia sites this particular race riot as a precursor to the Rosewood Atrocity:
“In December 1922, a white mob burned a black man to death for the murder of a white school teacher in Perry, 75 miles (121 km) from Rosewood, and then burned down the black Masonic Lodge and other black institutions, including a school and a church. The Perry lynching was covered on the front page of The Gainesville Daily Sun for a week in December 1922, heightening tensions in the region.”
The next month at the all-White Masonic Lodge in Sumner, near Rosewood, instigators insisted that a Black Rosewood resident had raped a White woman. No proof. Were these people the KKK? That’s ambiguous. We don’t know if they wore hoods and robes after they left the Masonic Lodge. We do know a Black janitor was working there. He was also a Freemason.
We do know that rules of Masonic etiquette required that the Black Mason not betray the confidence of his White superiors. But some historians surmise that he did go warn Black residents. The White lynch mob killed people and burned the place to the ground. We’ll never know how many Blacks were Murdered that night in Rosewood.
In the early 1980s, the St. Petersburg Times exposed the Rosewood Massacre. To deflect criticism generated by that article, in 1993 the Florida Legislature began investigating the Massacre. In 1997, a film about the Massacre came out, but it didn’t get the kind of viral promotion that Kony 2012 did.
In 2004, to deflect criticism generated by film, “the State of Florida declared Rosewood a Florida Heritage Landmark and erected a historical marker on State Road 24 that names the victims and describes the community’s destruction,” according to Wiki.
What Wiki can’t tell you is this: If you go to that marker, if you see that awful site, you will not be welcomed there. You will be even more of a sitting duck than my family and I were when we went there. You’ll be a worse sitting duck than the people of Rosewood themselves:
Do NOT get out of the car! First, turn the car around. If you have good enough telescopy, you can read the sign or photograph it. Hit the gas and get the hell out. Please. These people are nobody to fuck with.
And remember: To get back to civilization from the Rosewood killing fields, it’s eleven-and-a-half miles of thin road through flat desolate swampland where anybody can see you, and nobody would grieve if something happened to you. If you went to look at that marker, you are either a nigger or a nigger-lover. Get out of there quick; but, whatever you do, don’t get pulled over!
Three years before the Rosewood Massacre, Sir James Frazer published his monumental 12-volume study The Golden Bough, which through interpolative Cultural Anthropology tells the story of the disgusting violent prehistorical slime pit out of which our current humanity has finally emerged. Or have we emerged?!
Royal families marry within royal families. This has gone on for thousands of years [that we know of]. It may have gone on thousands of years before history was recorded in written language. Yet everyone in the slime pit could see that the sperm and blood of the King and a Virgin would cause the fields to be fertile. And it was damn important for the fields to be fertile.
But if they killed the Kings every year, those Kings wouldn’t be to able breed a super race of ruler-class demi-gods, with vestigial tails from all the inbreeding. (No, they’re not lizards from Mars. Don’t be fooled by those scaly tails. They’re just inbred.) Kings determined that Kings were needed alive. They got a substitute for the King. They got him a Tanist.
Now, instead of ritually killing the King every year, the people could rejoice in treating a Tanist as King for a day, or for a year, and then killing him instead of the King. It’s such a simple way to treat simple-minded people already mind-numbed by the prevalent propaganda. Just get them chanting like the people in the Kony 2012 viral video.
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.
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).
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.
US Tortures Pregnant Immigrant with Nazi Concentration Camp Procedure – Obama Covers it Up — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
(formerly titled “Obama Administration Covers Up Nazi Concentration Camp Torture Inflicted on Pregnant Immigrant”)
The state of Tennessee violently Tortured Juana Villegas by shackling her legs together while she was in labor. (http://colorlines.com/archives/2011/05/mom_shackled_during_labor_wins_case.html)(The link is repeated in Comment 1, below.) Incredibly, despite overwhelming evidence, no one has been arrested for the Torture.
Here are some of the co-Conspirators whose actions and inactions constitute crimes in the Torture of this woman and its Cover-Up:
~ The guards who Tortured her;
~ All guards and others who witnessed or knew about such Torture but failed to report the crimes;
~ The Prison Administrator who ordered the Torture;
~ The state and/or prison official(s) who officially decided that this Torture policy is allowed in Tennessee;
~ The prosecutor (and all other prosecutors with jurisdiction) who failed to file Torture and Cover-Up charges against the criminals in this case;
~ The District Attorney with jurisdiction there, and any other District Attorney(s) who served there yet ignored their duties to prosecute during of this case;
~ Tennessee Attorney General Robert Cooper, and any other Tennessee Attorney(s) General who failed to file Torture and Cover-Up charges during this case;
~ G.W. Bush Attorney General Michael Mukasey, who had jurisdiction during Villegas’ Torture;
~ US Attorney General Eric Holder, who continues to actively Cover-Up these crimes by failing to file Torture and Cover-Up charges against the Torturers and the white-collar criminals cited above;
~ US President Barack Obama, Holder’s boss: It is he [Obama] who profits the most from Covering Up the Torture of Villegas and other pregnant women: This Cover-Up shelters President Obama’s frequent “We don’t Torture” statement from being exposed as a lie.
In addition, all state officials and prison officials in all states who set policies allowing these Tortures should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for their respective participations in illegal Conspiracies. They and the ten criminals named above should be turned over to international prosecutors at the Hague to be tried for Crimes Against Humanity, as should George W. Bush, who was President when Villegas was Tortured.
Obama’s frequent lies about Torture seem calculated to Cover Up the crimes of George Bush, whose antics installed Obama. These lies also Cover Up the crimes of Dick Cheney and many others in the Bush Administration.
My partner Rachel long ago relayed to me her aunt Sylvia Neulander’s report on liberating Concentration Camps during the fall Nazi Germany, in the first four months of 1945. Sylvia worked with the Resistance, “the Underground,” the Haganah: The secret military arm of the Jewish Agency (which was the Jewish Government of Palestine under the British Mandate during World War II). Secret Agent Aunt Sylvia was a “doughnut girl” for the American Red Cross.
As the fighting of World War II drew to a close in Europe: The invading Russian Army advanced through Poland and into Germany; and the pace of the Genocide against the Jews increased, “For example [at the Ravensbrück Concentration Camp in Germany] 130 babies and pregnant women were gassed in March 1945″ (http://www.jewishgen.org/ForgottenCamps/Camps/RavensbruckEng.html)(link repeated in Comment 1), according to JewishGen, a non-profit organization affiliated with the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
Sylvia said that while liberating a Concentration Camp with the Red Cross, she discovered a woman in labor with her legs shackled together.
Sylvia freed the woman, who did then give birth. The woman told Sylvia that shackling pregnant women’s legs together was a standard Torture at the Camp, and that the procedure often killed both mother and child. The woman did die from the Torture. The following link (repeated in Comment 1) confirms Sylvia Neulander’s work as a spy and doughnut girl. http://templesinaidc.org/Articles/index.cfm?id=4507
In 2006, the UN outlawed as Torture the shackling of a woman’s legs together during labor and childbirth. In 2011 Hawaii outlawed this Torture, to the praise of Human Rights advocates. New York did so in 2009. (See these links placed in Comment 1, below.) In 2011, Virginia confessed that it intends to similarly Torture more female inmates. If one of them dies, it will be Premeditated Murder.
This 2006 report from the UN addresses Shackling Torture of pregnant women in Articles 7 & 10, and elsewhere throughout document. The report notes “U.S. Ratification of CEDAW would Expose Women’s Inequality: The failure of the United States to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) is further indication of the depth of the problem of achieving sex equality in the United States.” See page 24 of the report in particular:www.nowfoundation.org/issues/economic/GenderShadowReport.pdf (This link is repeated in Comment 1.)
(Note: Restraints in prisons are also used to force women to maintain positions whereat they can be raped, but that is another story.)
One Minute Lawyer (at http://oneminutelawyer.com/?p=2366)(link repeated in Comment 1) gives each state’s law on this type of Torture. To sum them up: Aside from Hawaii and New York, all US states allow vile sadists to Torture pregnant women with leg restraints in the third trimester. A few disallow or disrecommend Torturing women by shackling their legs during labor and/or delivery. Virginia this year adamantly insisted that this Torture is appropriate for (Black) women (and presumably immigrants). (http://www.rhrealitycheck.org/node/15873)(Link repeated in Comment 1.)
Here’s a petition to stop these Tortures (in the link that follows, repeated in Comment 3):
