Beware of the Propaganda Video “The Politics of Obama’s Climate Move” — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
Beware of the Propaganda video “The Politics of Obama’s Climate Move.” A Boston group called “Environmental Action,” which doesn’t always support Fracking, nonetheless says this in its Facebook announcement favoring President Obama’s death pact for the nation:
Here’s the way the BBC starts its report: ““The proposals reportedly seek to cut carbon pollution from nearly 1,600 power plants by 30% by 2030.” He supports Fracking and Shale Gas, unnecessary Pipelines, and only reducing a little on Coal’s CO2 emissions by 2030. President Obama is in full climate-science denial. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-27645569
But by burning Hemp in the Coal plants – even without renovations to the plants – the CO2 emissions will drop to zero the first day, because Hemp cannot add CO2 to the air since it only contains the CO2 that it just absorbed from the air:
This proposal shows that the Republicans have gotten to Obama. The President is promoting superstitious nonsense that burning Fossil Fuels and emitting unnecessary Greenhouse Gases can be good. Every bit of Coal and Oil taken from the ground or sea increases the cost of Coal and Oil by reducing the Earth’s reserves. But every bit of Hempen or other Clean Fuel produced lowers the price, by creating a glut.
Between this and his State of the Union message, with his adamant denial of climate science, Obama is clearly calling for Genocide against Africans, Islanders, the Global South, and indigenous peoples the world over, by inundating us with Greenhouse Gases. I urge “Environmental Action” an others touting the monstrosity to tell the truth about it. http://www.environmental-action.org/
In an uncharacteristic display of hideous Racial Hatred and a reckless flaunting of journalistic ethics, Democracy Now! attacked Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling today with antisemitic slurs, calling him a “‘kike.’” The show aired Michael Jackson’s disturbing and disgusting Racist diatribe, ironically enough, to introduce a segment accusing Sterling of Racism.
Jackson’s song is “They Don’t Care About Us;” it pushes Racial bigotry: “They [Jews] don’t care about us [African Americans].” Democracy Now! used the song to insult Sterling’s Jewish ancestry.
The National Basketball Association today banned Sterling for life, for saying on tape that his girlfriend shouldn’t bring Black people to “his” games, and for similar comments, and – according to DN!‘s guest today, sports journalist Dave Zirin – for decades of apparent Racism against African Americans.
The NBA in its action did not criticize Sterling for being Jewish. In fact, as far as I can tell, other venues reporting the story ignored Sterling’s ancestry completely, as it’s completely irrelevant. So, it’s difficult to discern why Democracy Now! chose to sleaze Sterling over his Judaic roots. I’ll look into it a little deeper below.
But I first must issue my strongest possible condemnation of Democracy Now! for this uncalled-for Racist attack; and more rebuke for the sloppy editing that let it air … how many times? Amy Goodman and staff: You are obligated to apologize to Mr. Sterling.
Another guest in the Ukraine segment was George H.W. Bush’s Ambassador to the Soviet Union, Jack Matlock, who pointed out that President Obama’s actions in the Ukraine affair have been consistently stupid. Then, Goodman led Matlock into partisan politicking:
President Obama had staged a fake-news Propaganda kabuki event earlier in the Philippines with an intelligence asset who’s a Fox News reporter. Democracy Now! aired it early in tonight’s broadcast, as if it were legitimate news. The BS is like this: Fox is pushing for war, but heroic President Reagan Obama is stronger than Fox, and he fights for peace.
Amy Goodman acted like this was legitimate, then asked the Ambassador what he thought. He said how great President Reagan Obama is to beat the bad Fox, by being more peaceful.
(Obama has spent his recent Presidency lying to try to start a war with Iran in hopes of raising Oil prices; then lying to start a war with Syria, which continues, as his forces deploy Genocidal poisonous gas attacks against civilians.) Democracy Now!, drop the bullshit.
The President pretended to be trying to keep us at peace, and Amy Goodman failed to mention the Billions of dollars that the Obama Administration spent to overthrow the elected Ukrainian Government and install the Nazi coup regime, initiating the current crisis.
Host Goodman, DN! reporter Aaron Mate, Bush Ambassador Jack Matlock, and Kiev Post editor Christopher Miller all failed to mention that the US is backing the coalition of the self-named Nazi Party (now called the Freedom Party, Svoboda), whose mission statement calls for cracking down on Jews.
The segment’s other guest, Nina Khrushcheva, adopted granddaughter of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, did call US-backed coup leaders “Fascists,” but played it down, saying that Russia shouldn’t make such a big thing of their Nazi affiliation.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
With a straight face, Amy Goodman reported horrifying Fascist developments in Egypt (the official banning of the Muslim Brotherhood Party – which overwhelmingly won the Election there – and the Execution of more than 600 of its members).
She didn’t mention that the Obama Administration is behind the Executions [Assassinations] and the banning of the Party. She didn’t mention that Obama controls the Egyptian Military and that he cracked down on the press and dissent there, including causing Medea Benjamin’s arrest. Egypt is a puppet of the United States.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I guess Democracy Now! is the new MSNBC. Here it was today, shamelessly campaigning for the 2014 Democratic Congressional slate, and pushing Racial Hatred. It made me sick. Man! This Democratic Party coalition with the Nazis has really got me down!
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.
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.
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.
A New York Times reporter revealed that President Obama and Mitt Romney (Obama’s 2012 Presidential Election Fraud co-conspirator) shook them down, and demanded and received Bribes from the Times, the Washington Post, and Bloomberg News. The Bribe is that the Times, the Post, Bloomberg, and many other media outlets Bribe Obama (and his partner Romney) by letting them censor news stories. It seems that Woodward (legendary for bringing down Richard Nixon in the Watergate scandal) (played by Robert Redford) violated the Bribery agreement his paper had with President Obama by not giving the President final say over what the newspaper publishes about him. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/21/ny-times-bribes-obama-and-romney-after-campaigns-demand-it/
When you violate an agreement with the world’s most prolific, remorseless, and bloodthirsty Mass Murdering hitman, you’re treading on thin ice. Obama claims “We don’t Torture,” but he belies that by refusing to investigate or prosecute Torture. President Obama and his Murderous henchman John Brennan have Murdered lots of defenseless children with Coward Drones already this year. It was brave what you did. Our prayers are with you, Bob.
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
Obama’s Forces Launch Chemical Weapon Attack Killing Baby with Poison Gas: The President’s Hateful Policies Against Children — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
President Obama and others keep telling us that there’s an emergency in Syria because the Dictator might have or might get a Chemical Weapon – Poison Gas. But President Obama is already using that Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) against helpless unarmed children in Bahrain.
President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton sent Bahrain’s bloody Fascist Khalifa regime yet more Poisonous Gas after this child was killed, lots more, apparently approving of what you just saw. The Gas killings continue in Bahrain. They’re killing Slaves and they’re killing Shi’a with Poison Gas; and they’re killing Slave children and Shi’a children too. Why does Obama support the Khalifas’ Genocidal behavior in Bahrain? Because he parks the US 5th Fleet in Bahrain’s harbor. http://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/syria-bahrain-a-tale-of-two-uprisings-one-fabricated-the-other-forgotten/
The US Navy’s 5th Fleet, docked in Bahrain, is famed the world over for its cowardice. In the first place, they work for Obama, and a bully is always a coward. For eleven years, they’ve been carrying out the most cowardly operation in history: The United States, the world’s strongest and most Militarily advanced country, has waged more than a decade of War against Afghanistan, the weakest and most backward country on Earth. Still, Afghanistan kicked the shit out of us, and we will leave there in shame.
And the men and women of the US 5th Fleet are in Bahrain, apparently trembling in their boots, while mass Atrocities go on a few feet away: Gassings; Torture; Doctors, Nurses, Professors, and Journalists rounded up and disappeared; Genocides against multiple ethnic groups. And the US cowards just sit there, instead of helping out the defenseless.
Mass Murders in US schools, beginning with Columbine, take place only when our nation is at War. Twenty-seven days before Columbine, President Clinton began his merciless bombing of Yugoslavia. Propaganda told us that we must wage War there, or else War would start without us, or something like that: They told us we needed War. I bought it, didn’t you? We fell for it.
All the kids heard that. All the kids then knew that the President of the United States, the father figure of our nation, supported killing people indiscriminately, to make his point. The President is our top role model, so kids started taking up guns and acting it out. They will obviously continue to do so with increasing frequency and intensity until one of three things happens: Either until some other role model does something different, or until we stop Warring, or until we stop supplying killers with assault weapons. Obama has made it abundantly clear many times that he wants to make sure that the violently insane still can get machine guns. And it looks like he doesn’t want to stop having War either.
And President Obama has taken this madness far to the Right of any Democrat or Republican in modern history. Certainly no world leader since Hitler has acted as Hatefully toward children as Obama has.
But the worst Psychological Warfare ever deployed against the people of this country was when Barack Obama claimed that he is allowed to order Murders and that’s Legal and OK. That move spread violent insanity throughout the country. It is the President’s responsibility to act like a sane adult. Instead, after our Ambassador was killed in Libya, Obama spewed his deadly Propaganda on the Daily Show – and this may have influenced yesterday’s shootings – saying “I wasn’t confused about the fact that we’re gonna hunt down whoever did it and bring him to justice.” Even Bloomberg’s Mark Miller said that Obama sending Drones back in to Libya in reaction to the Ambassador’s Assassination would be cruel and crazy. Still, Obama did it.
That’s how violently insane and irresponsible our President is: With people like yesterday’s shooter Adam Lanza listening, Obama insisted that, instead of doing something sane, he, our country’s top father figure and main role model, thought hunting down humans was the example he wanted to give people the world over. He, Obama, the man who is allowed to commit Murder any time he wants to, against anybody, anywhere in the world – that he, our President, wants to hunt somebody down, and wants to teach our citizens that hunting people down and killing people is OK, and that it is acceptable behavior.
Adam Lanza killed a lot of kids yesterday, but not nearly as many as Barack Obama did. Now let’s look at some of Obama’s Hateful policies against children.
Late in 2009, Obama’s first year in office, he claimed that he was allowed to order Assassinations, and ordered one against a Somali who had allegedly been involved with an Embassy bombing more than a decade earlier, when he was a child. Obama ordered an Assassination team to Murder him and they did. Since then, they have killed several other Somalis accused of the exact same crime. A few months later, Somali children were trying to stop foreign occupying powers from looting their continent’s mineral wealth. These children were doing what was right for their people, but our Propaganda called them “Pirates.”
Then President Obama started calling them “Pirates.” The shipping companies didn’t know what to do. Obama ordered the children shot dead. The Propaganda called them “Pirates,” the President called them “Pirates,” and if they’re Pirates, it’s OK to Murder them, right? Then came the starvation times: Muslim occupiers were in Somalia’s capital. The US wouldn’t allow food into Mogadishu until the Muslim army left, so thousands of children starved to death. And of course, of all countries in the world, only Obama’s United States and his puppet Somalia agree that it is alright to treat children like that. http://www.amnestyusa.org/our-work/issues/children-s-rights/convention-on-the-rights-of-the-child
Haiti got hit by an earthquake, and only Cuba came to help, then Obama rushed in an occupation force. He promised a billion dollars. (He was lying: The US actually sent no money: Zero!) Our Military blocked Cuba from helping. People had to wait weeks for relief. Obama brought in Nepalese soldiers from the Indus valley, where Cholera has been prevalent since ancient times. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-20024400
Cholera had never been in Haiti before, but now, thanks to Obama, it has killed thousands in Haiti, including lots of kids. Obama (and the Clintons) may someday be charged with Genocide for their actions and inactions in Somalia, Haiti, and Bahrain. They, like Bush and Cheney, may someday be wary of traveling to certain countries or certain states, for fear of arrest.
Obama claims that he is allowed to order Assassinations, and that he is allowed to kill people with Coward Drones, operated by disgraceful cowardly Murderers in the United States, who pose a grave risk to our National Security by their very presence. After killing a Journalist with a Coward Drone in Yemen, the next week, Obama sent another Coward Drone to Murder the man’s 16-year-old son. Guantánamo held too many children, and all of them there were Tortured. Obama said he would close it, but he was lying. http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/25/world/asia/pakistan-us-drone-strikes/index.html
But President Obama’s work that kills the most children is his blocking of progress in climate negotiations, which he did again at this year’s climate conference that just ended in Qatar, near Bahrain. Oil, Fracking, Coal, Natural Gas, they’re all causing massive Global Warming, which will kill lots of kids. But it could be stopped right away, by growing Hemp which has the highest biomass of any plant, and is the world’s richest source of Ethanol and Biodiesel: Both clean fuels that cause no Global Warming. President Obama today indicated that he may not continue to arrest users where Marijuana is Legal, but he has said similar things before, which all turned out to be lies. If we started growing Hemp on a massive scale today, within a few months our country would be energy independent, and emitting no net Greenhouse Gases. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/
So, the Fossil Fuels (Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas) compete with Marijuana. They add billions of tons of CO2 to the air, but Marijuana-based fuels can’t add any, because they hold no fossilized Carbon, only that which the living plant recently absorbed from the atmosphere. And it wouldn’t even take changing a law to get Medical Marijuana Legal: President Obama can do it with the stroke of his pen, an Executive Order. If President Obama doesn’t immediately order Medical Marijuana Legal, lots of people will lose the ability to walk because of Multiple Sclerosis, and some will die from it this year, just like last year and the year before.
And what do you tell your child who lies dying in the hospital from Skin Cancer, because s/he can’t get Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)? (Videos show that RSO destroys Skin Cancer cells and heals the skin, but President Obama is blocking it from even being tested in the United States, because it is made from Marijuana.) Well, here’s what you tell your kid then: “Our President won’t let you have the medicine you need to live: We don’t know if it’s because he’s superstitious about a plant, or if it’s because somebody gave him a lot of money to keep it away from you, or if he just Hates kids.” http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-shooting-response-2012-12
“Liberals” Attacking Romney from the Right — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!, and even some writers here at FireDogLake.com [both of which are usually considered to be hosting views from the political Left] used Right-wing propaganda from the Obama campaign, continuing to recycle the meme “gaffe.” Yes, even Amy Goodman reported that Mitt Romney’s statement of concern over a labor strike in Great Britain is a “gaffe,” a term today used widely within the Obama campaign (and apparently in the shadow campaign as well). Here’s the story from two unofficial components of the Obama campaign: Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and the Huffington Post. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/26/mitt-romney-olympics-gaffe-harry-reid_n_1707996.html
My question is: Why didn’t President Obama voice any support for the abused workers, as Romney did? Why was Amy Goodman into attacking Mitt Romney for his bringing the plight of these abused workers before the world? Why was Democracy Now! not concerned with the plight of the abused workers? Why did she use this as an opportunity to campaign for Obama? Will she continue to be awarded for such work? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/26/sports/olympics/british-customs-workers-call-off-strike.html
Obama’s propagandists, and many people who would have us believe that they are “democrats” (or Liberals or Progressives or on the Left), apparently think that Mitt Romney should not have offended his hosts by mentioning problems. But with the security there announced as failing and falling apart just as a US Presidential candidate was heading there to take part in the Olympics [the Equestrian Dressage event], he would have been remiss not to mention the worrisome situation. These are not gaffes. I worked against Romney when he ran for Governor and I’m working against him now. These are not gaffes.
Look at this disgusting piece of Right-wing pro-Obama propaganda, from the BBC/British Government. And once they finally let you, pay attention to what Mitt Romney actually says.
What I found even more bizarre the other day was to hear President Obama attacking Romney from the Right, using almost identical words to what Republicans usually say when attacking Democrats: Obama claimed that the tax plan Romney [that tax-and-spend Liberal(?)] was touting would send jobs overseas, making us anti-competitive. He said that Romney is too Progressive on taxation. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303612804577531393388570440.html
It was ironic and duplicitous for Obama to say that Romney’s plan will create 800,000 jobs overseas, after he himself has just completed Free Trade Agreements to send US jobs to Korea, Colombia, and Panama, where workers have few rights. Note that Florida’s neo-Fascist Governor Rick Scott praised Obama for this Right-wing Atrocity. http://www.flchamber.com/print/3737
Meanwhile Bill Maher and the HBO show Big Love have spent millions of dollars in television time convincing Americans that Mormons are disgusting and not worth trusting. Mitt Romney is a Mormon. I was kind of surprised when I learned that Romney was a Mormon. I heard it from a fellow Liberal several years ago, when Romney was first running for Massachusetts Governor. My friend cautioned me that Romney could get elected in Massachusetts, and then, use that to catapult him toward the Presidency. And he was a Mormon. http://www.myfoxboston.com/story/19122451/poll-few-think-romneys-faith-resembles-their-own
I’m only going to say this once. It’s not appropriate to discriminate against someone based on religion. (To do so is a tactic of the far-far-far-Right.)
The Left-to-Right line-up in the Presidential race is getting really crazy now. Not only are Obama and his supporters assailing Romney for being too far Left, the nation’s top Nazi philosopher former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard Don Black told Cenk Uygur that both Obama and the Republicans are too far-Right for him. He said he supports Ron Paul. Congressman Paul stands significantly to the Left of both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on Marijuana and peace. Then there’s (former?) Presidential candidate Rocky Anderson, who just named a running mate last week, before appearing on the weekend fake news program Up With Chris Hayes, a show hosted twice each weekend by Hayes from The Nation magazine, whose apparent job is to trick Liberals/Progressives/Left voters into voting for the extreme Right: Barack Obama. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkJb1m0o_m4
The Hayes show is actually a long commercial for Obama’s reelection. Rocky Anderson didn’t even mention that he was running for President, he just attacked Mitt Romney for not being more Obama-friendly. Hayes [posing himself as a non-biased Journalist] identified Anderson as a Democrat, and brought him back on at the end of the segment, to defend Mitt Romney against the worst charges that others had made on the show. Anderson didn’t say he was running, but was clearly positioning himself between Obama and Romney. Pundits have long told us that a plurality of voters are Independents, and that the preponderance of them are actually between the Democrats and the Republicans, Left-to-Right speaking. I dispute that. I think most voters are actually to the Left of Republicrats like Obromney on most issues. When Rocky first started running, his website said that he didn’t run as a Green because he didn’t want to be associated with the Left. They took that down, and he ran Left, for a while.
So here’s our revised Left-to-Right Presidential candidates line-up (I’ll insert the Nazi philosopher where he says he fits. Remember, while they are apparently to the Left of Republicrats, Nazis are still way too far Right to be trusted with the Presidency.)
L – Jill Stein/Green – Stewart Alexander/Socialist – Jimmy McMillan/Rent Is Too Damn High – Gary Johnson/Libertarian – Ron Paul/Republican – Don Black/Nazi – Mitt Romney/Republican – Rocky Anderson/Justice – Barack Obama/Democrat – R
As Johnny Carson used to say: “Man, that is just wild!“
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.
President Obama and puppet PM Netanyahu are threatening to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities with Israel’s Air Force. If these madmen carry out their threat, they will deploy the largest and potentially the most deadly dirty bomb in history against all American Military personnel in Afghanistan. NATO troops too. The biggest Friendly Fire incident ever! And that’s assuming that Obama and Netanyahu are not really as insane as they’re acting.
…Because “All options on the table” could also include bombing an operating nuclear facility with a nuclear bomb. That would incinerate parts of Iran and bordering countries. It would also poison us in this country – because the jet stream just keeps on coming. Or an “option” might be nuking something else in Iran. That would be irresponsible. And evil. And it would still poison our guys.
They’re actually talking about bombing nuclear facilities with “conventional” weapons, and scattering those charged particles into the wind, specifically, into the jet stream of upper air currents that always blows from West to East (due to the rotation of the Earth).
Besides poisoning all US servicemen in Afghanistan, this diabolical scheme will poison civilians in Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, East Turkestan, and probably elsewhere. If the US is willing to poison these people merely because they’re Muslims, then our genocidal impulse is reaching a feverish pitch. A Hate Crime in all our names.
And let’s remember just how preposterous this lie is: Obama, Netanyahu, and their propaganda mouthpieces claim that Iran’s nuclear program poses “an existential threat” to Israel. Of course there’s no proof that Iran is trying to build nuclear weapons – which Israel already has. But even if Iran had them, they couldn’t bomb Israel with them, for the very same reason: The jet stream would carry those charged particles right back to Iran: They’d be dirty-bombing themselves!
Of course, dirty-bombing one’s own Military is by definition Treason: Waging war against one’s own people. If Obama [or Iran's Military leader] does choose that option, it will be a clear case of Treason. Then, Senators Al Franken, Sherrod Brown, and others who got elected as Liberals, will be forced to either oppose President Obama for this Treasonous act, or join him in his War Crime barbarism.
East Turkestan, by the way, is an occupied nation in the Northwestern quadrant of China. It is the land of the Uygurs, and it’s known in US propaganda as “China’s Muslim West.” Territorial claims of occupied East Turkestan and occupied Tibet comprise more than half of what the colonial powers [through international law] call “China.”
Most Americans have never heard of the Uygurs. Most who have heard just found out about them when Presidents Bush, and then Obama, ordered several innocent Uygurs to be held in Guantanamo Bay Torture Facility for years, as a favor to China. Four were released to Bermuda in 2009. Two were “freed” last month to El Salvador, a Fascist country. Eleven are still said to be warehoused at the G.B. Torture Facility. There is no proof that they are still alive.
The reason President Obama is making this nuclear threat is to raise the price of Oil. Iran is one of the world’s leading Oil producers. Newspaper editorials in the 1970s predicted that the US would someday wage war against Iraq and Iran to steal their Oil. Fighting over Oil, or threatening to do so, causes upward pressure on its price. This tactic always works.
And by raising the price of Oil, Obama and Netanyahu help pay for Iran’s nuclear program, wholly financed by Oil. Raising the price of Oil also helps pay for Obama’s and Netanyahu’s own political futures.
Don’t believe Obama’s lies: There Are No WMDs! (Some people will do nearly anything for Oil money.)
The Power of the Mass Media: Newly Discovered Osama bin Laden Cave Video — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
My two-year-old radical political performance art video got “featured” by YouTube this month, the first time that’s ever happened. It was suddenly promoted to lots of potential viewers around the globe. Please don’t watch it yet. I have a few things to say about it first.
When President Obama claimed in Autumn 2009 that he was empowered to order Premeditated Murder against any Muslim anywhere in the world, pardon himself for the crime(s), and then proceeded doing it in Somalia and Yemen; I was outraged, and ashamed to be an American.
The Muse poured out this poem through me, and by March 2010, I had an event scheduled to raise awareness, and was recording this video, with my videographer and significant other Rachel. Less than three months later, I posted my first blog/Diary here at FireDogLake.com.
This flick’s viewership is high for one of my videos. I don’t know why it was featured, but there are details and political events that relate. It has all along been viewed in Africa and in many Muslim countries. This month was the anniversary of bin Laden’s Murder (that is, the Premeditated Murder ["targeted assassination"] of the person whom Special Forces killed, then claimed was Osama bin Laden, then disposed of the body without verifying who it was).
When I recorded it, President Obama was propagandizing about going after the presumably living Osama bin Laden “in the cave where he lives.” Congressman John Murtha had courageously called for investigation of War Crime Atrocities committed by cowardly US Marines in an horrific massacre of defenseless women and children in Iraq. But instead of an investigation, hundreds or perhaps thousands of websites popped up demanding that Murtha be Assassinated for being so disrespectful to the Marines.
Soon, Murtha was rushed to a Military hospital, supposedly for a simple procedure. But instead of the usual simple procedure – the standard and safe laparoscopic surgery – the Military doctor sliced open Murtha’s body cavity with a knife and slit his intestine. That killed him. The Military assumed it was an accident. So did the press.
At the same time, ex-Congressman Charlie Wilson dropped dead. Charlie Wilson’s War was the book and movie about Representative Wilson’s covert program to arm bin Laden in Afghanistan. One Congressman talked too much, and the other knew too much. The Obama Administration, of course, didn’t investigate either of the killings, despite the hundreds of death threats from Marines against Murtha immediately before his Murder in Military custody.
Another reason YouTube may have chosen to promote this one at this time is that another video I’m in just soared to about 10,000 hits: A live concert I did a year ago with a couple of friends: President Obama’s Primary Democratic challenger and Political Theatre performance artist Vermin Supreme, and legendary Political Prisoner and performance poet John Sinclair – who was imprisoned after his brilliant work at the 1968 Democratic Convention, and finally released [despite his long remaining sentence] when his admirers and fellow pot smokers came out and raised hell – John Lennon and them. (Vermin’s popularity may have rubbed off on me: After finishing third in this year’s New Hampshire Democratic Primary, Vermin Supreme got millions of views on YouTube in several videos, and toys and sculptures were created in his image in other countries.)
This featuring by YouTube garnered about exactly 20% of the lifetime views for this video. The US views accounted for 53.4% of all views this month. Lifetime, US viewers have watched 51.2% of the showings. Most of this month’s 822 views occurred on the day it was featured, the anniversary. President Obama was sure promoting it then, bragging about his anniversary.
So here’s the phenomenon: Though I was registered as a Democrat when I recorded it, as an artist I’m more of a revolutionary communist, completely non-commercial, with no incentive for any corporate entity to push it. However, on YouTube I get my message out there anyway, in this case, four thousand times over!
So that you’ll fully appreciate the overwhelming extent of exposure YouTube gave my anti-status-quo diatribe, I’m about to get rabelaisian on you, and tell you exactly where it went. It went to 84 nations this month, and 115 total. And it went to Washington, DC, and 45 states this month, and lifetime: All 52 states: The 50 common ones, DC, and the Unknown State.
Of course, we don’t know how many of these views were recorded and then shared with people not online, but we do know that lots of the views were in countries where very few people have internet. And since it’s gotten popular in Arab countries, we don’t know how many of the views are by US intelligence agents monitoring dissent on the web, or trying to tie me to any alleged Terrorists who might listen to my songs.
And we don’t know about the Unknown Nations and Unknown States that crop up. That may be when the intelligence monitors are on, not wanting people to know which country or state they’re in. And we don’t know about the 19 additional views that YouTube chose not to include in its tally of statistics, but my best guess is they went to NSA headquarters, or maybe they just haven’t been fully counted yet. And we don’t know in which countries this video may be sometimes blocked, or prohibited completely.
Total views: 4,122 since this video was posted on March 7, 2010: Obama bin Plottin by Norman B (“Deviations from the Norm”): 822 views in the past month, mainly on its big day. Below trace those views to the viewer.
