Child Murderer-in-Chief Announces Hateful Cuts, Issues Veiled Warning Threat to First Graders

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.

 

 

 

With his ha-ha funny Coward Drones, President Obama has Murdered at least 178 children. We must as a country find some way to turn him over the the International Criminal Court in the Hague for prosecution. If we don’t, we are helping him Murder more children.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/dec/19/newtown-drones-children-deaths

Today President Obama announced Hateful slashes to benefits slated for the very poorest and most vulnerable people in our country: This is so that the richer half of the country won’t have to pay the automatic tax increase that he himself signed into law, but now calls “The Fiscal Cliff.” Make no mistake about it: These cuts do constitute a monumental Hate Crime, and they are sure to kill lots of children. President Obama seems to be letting his apparent Hatred of children get in the way of his governing.  http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/12/14/obamas-forces-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-killing-baby-with-poison-gas-the-presidents-hateful-policies-against-children/

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.

Watch this whole fascinating report. Jake the Snake delivers Obama’s veiled threat beginning at about the 6-minute mark of the video.  http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidestoryamericas/2012/12/2012121972717242949.html

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

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 fail to 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.

In Yemen, the US trained and armed an arm of Al Qaeda as the invasion force. Like all death squads and intelligence agencies, Al Qaeda mercenaries are far-Right Fascists. The outcome was predictable. As you know, Right-wing Fascists hate Black people. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/8407047/Libyan-rebel-commander-admits-his-fighters-have-al-Qaeda-links.html

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.

Anthony Shadid was an American Arab. Shadid was the primary reporter covering the Libyan Genocide. Then he let airport security handle his asthma meds, and quickly got dead. Less than two weeks ago, he breathed his last. Here’s one of the last reports he ever made. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/09/world/africa/libyas-new-government-unable-to-control-militias.html?_r=2&ref=todayspaper

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.

As if the Genocidal impulse hadn’t gone far enough already, here we find that these Chemical Weapons of Mass Destruction will spread birth defects to Libyans not yet born.

Here we get a close up view of one of many Obama Death Squads, like the ones deployed in Honduras, Yemen, Somalia, etc.. In this report, Obama’s Misurata ODS Brigade brags about being “the brigade for purging Slaves and Black skin.” There are maps and lots of links and videos with this one. http://libyasos.blogspot.com/2011/09/genocide-racism-ethic-cleasing-of.html

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. otp.informationdesk@icc-cpi.int

Here is the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. http://www.preventgenocide.org/law/icc/statute/part-a.html

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

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.
