Biden Bait And Switch

October 24, 2020

  • Evil will play out, and we will describe it with relish. Elucidating the basic facts is what wisdom has to seek first and we will do it better if we enjoy it.
  • Civilization enabled intensive agriculture by organizing large human concentrated populations protected by armies. Humanity became much more powerful. However. such concentrations are generally captured by ever more powerful small elites. The cause of this, and its main nefarious effect, is that money and power exponentiate: they grow proportionally to their own sizes. This is the plutocratic phenomenon, it’s the most prominent danger in all civilizations, because it ruins the creative core of humanity.
  • Having a class of families grabbing most of the power and money is fundamentally inhuman: humans are not made to be ruled and can be ruled only by destroying the core human characteristic, intelligence. The plutocracy does this by tightly controlling what can be learned. Thus the present world plutocracy owns all the media: We The People can learn only what our masters want us to learn. This censorship has now been extended to the Internet.
  • Because plutocracies are fundamentally inhuman they always fear that their rule is going to be resisted. Thus they can persist in the exponentiation which created them in the first place, only by getting ever more diabolical in the imposition of their inhuman existence. They do this mostly by controlling minds.
  • Most civilizations collapse when the plutocracies which have captured them become so criminally insane that they commit a fatal error. Collapses are not pretty: in many cases, more than 90% of the original population got wiped out.
  • We are presently potentially in such a situation: a tiny elite, the Global Deep Plutocracy, acts as a world government, under a morass of lies. An example of lies is “Free Trade”. Another example is the “Paris Climate Accord”, which was just a blank check for the world’s biggest polluters to keep on polluting, as much as they like. The tiny elite lost command of spaceship Earth when Trump was elected, but, thanks to its world media ownership, it has succeeded to block Trump and has rolled out one of its oldest, most experienced hands to regain an innocuously frail looking mastery.
  • The greatest error is being committed having many of the life circuits of spaceship Earth on the verge of collapse. Another great error is the mother of the preceding one: all the world’s decisions are taken inside a small elite of a few thousand families, which worship GDP. GDP, not just Gross Domestic Product, but also the Global Deep Plutocracy… which functions as the fateful, lethal and vicious part of the Global Deep State.(And yes there is Global Deep State: 200 states talking to each other are part of it, plus countless treaties, international arbitration organizations, the UN, WHO, UNESCO, Interpol, EU, WTO, etc.)
  • ***
  • The phenomenon of Global Deep Plutocracy running out of democratic control is already what demolished the Roman Republic, and the Roman empire it degenerated into. Thus, there is a detailed historical precedent of what is happening today. Basically, the same patterns are reproduced, but on a planetary scale.
  • When The Roman State collapsed, the Franks took over and established a milder rule with religious tolerance, while outlawing slavery and mandating secular education, throughout Europe. That fostered technological and philosophical innovation. Science followed. Thus, five centuries after the Roman State collapse, the “Renovated Roman Empire” was leading humanity’s progress, higher than Rome ever had.
  • However, this time we do not have a civilization B waiting on another planet to extirpate us from the mess caused by those who stole most of the wealth, power and mind, the greediest, basest, and most fake.  
Obama increased inequality. He was elected to do the opposite. And he promised to decrease inequality, before then doing exactly all he could to increase it (for example the TARP program).

  • The main root of the present Global Deep Plutocracy arose from the mightiest nation, the USA. It is a multigenerational phenomenon. (The Senator who led the writing of the crooked Obamacare law was a fifth-generation plutocrat; one of his mansions sat on more than 100,000 acres of personal property; the VP of a major health insurer resigned her job to help plutocracy get more money out of healthcare.)
  • Rockefeller owned at some point more than 12% of the US economy. President Teddy Roosevelt tried to stop the takeover of the entire USA by the few by putting the antitrust laws into action.
  • But the American Republic didn’t have the absolute wealth limits of the Roman Republic, and all that Teddy achieved was a dissemination of the plutocracy. Foundations, shell companies and other loopholes, plus the intrinsic nature of the present financial system only insured that the wealthiest families would become ever more powerful. And they did, even using world wars as games they invented the rules of, and won.
  • ***
  • World War One gave a boost to the USA’s wealthiest, first from trading with the enemy of democracy, the Kaiser and his racist, genocidal plutocracy. Then, after victory in 1918, the USA grabbed much of German industrial and intellectual property. The USA became the Deus Ex Machina of Germany, organizing the entire country in a succession of Wall Street engineered “plans”. US plutocracy also financed Hitler and organized his death machinery for him, even before he got to power (for example, IG Farben, central to the extermination camps was a monopoly organized by Wall Street, in 1925, 8 years before Hitler came to power; monopolies were lawful in Germany, but not the USA; so Hitler gave IBM a monopoly of computing in his Reich).
  • By the time World War Two was done, the US plutocracy owned the world (both Stalin and Mao owed their survival to the US). Top US lawyers in charge of denazifying Germany, such as the Dulles brothers, were in charge of prosecuting those they had worked with before the war… Business was back to status quo ante bellum in a flash. 24 years after the Nazi capitulation, SS-Sturmbannführer Von Braun, and his 1,600 German Nazi collaborators, enabled NASA to land on the Moon.
  • ***
  • Operating mostly invisibly, like the mythological Pluto, the second name of the Greek god of hell, the plutocrats, their foundations, nonprofits, shell and anonymous companies, private universities, think tanks and overwhelming media ownership, established the modern deep state. The nexus of this constellation of evil was the state of Delaware, the world’s top tax haven led by Joe Biden, elected US Senator at the age of 29.  
  • Soon Roosevelt’s Banking Act of 1933 was dismantled: plutocrats recovered under Clinton full control of the financial sector, just as in the roaring 1920s… Those self-described “Masters of the Universe” focused investments on “financial derivatives”… a sort of obsessive financial masturbation which enabled to divert funding away from infrastructure. Thus the West fell into decrepitude (it was not just the US doing this “derivative” stuff; France and Britain were just as apt, with the same degeneracy as a result)
  • There is a method to the madness of putting financiers in power and letting them destroy the economy. In conjunction with offshorization, divesting deprives We The People from power. And when there is no power there is no democracy: demos-kratia is people-power.
  • ***
  • Fortunately, We The People elected a “populist” president, Trump, long a rebel with many causes (such as institutionalized reverse racism). In particular, Trump struggled against offshorization, flamboyantly already in the 1980s, against Ronald Reagan (and his little helpers such as Joe Biden).
  • The Global Deep State saw the danger: not just what Trump was trying to do, but, worse, what he said, and the change of mentality Trump imparted… Trump changed the global mood, from the worshipping of Free Trade, which is neither a trade nor free, and the supreme engine of global catastrophically rising inequality, to the realization by We The People that local economy and local manufacturing was necessary to achieve freedom and power.        
  • The Global Deep State used against Trump methods similar to those used by the Global Roman Plutocracy fighting the Roman Republic. Horrible insults, including that he wanted to become dictator. Trump, similar to Tiberius Gracchus, just pursued an immensely wealthy monopoly, Google, the world’s monopolistic search engine.
  • Having risen living standards and energized the nation noticeably, Trump would have won without problem… But then came the virus, and as Nancy Pelosi, one of the stealthy architects of the Iraq War, put it: “It’s Trump’s virus!” Nancy knows that the virus arose in China, thanks to Trump… A rather curious situation: China is one of Trump’s main adversaries. The Chinese dictatorship is a crucial part of the Global Deep Plutocracy (much more so than the fascist regimes bankrolled by US plutocrats were in the 1930s)… So imaginations are invited to run wild. One thing is sure; while China ferociously and totally locked itself against the virus, air bridges to the rest of the world were fully open. Sometimes crimes are of opportunity, sometimes crimes are planned, sometimes both.     
  • In all this the worst has certainly been the capture of most of the world’s intellectuals by the Global Deep Plutocracy. This is not surprising as the most prestigious universities are themselves not just fed and controlled by the GDP, but part of it. There, once again, we saw this movie before: after a few generations under the yoke of the Roman plutocracy and its emperors, Roman intellectual life had petered down to zero… And so did Roman science and the engineering… Just when maximal innovation was needed. In the end the Barbarians had better weapons
  • Smart Roman officers helped launch the confederacy of the Franks, complete with Latin written law (Lex Salica). This would turn into the Second Foundation of Rome (similarly to the tale described in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy). But this time, there is no Second Foundation… Besides China, of course. China a five thousand year old civilization, had at least one near-extinction event in the last millennium (the conquest by Genghis Khan). Comparing to Western Europe, China can only have learned what the franks learned: that technological progress and military prowess are the core of civilization and home-grown plutocracy should not stand in the way.  
  • So we face a moment of truth: shall we unleash full human potential, or an ocean of lies. Lies? Well, the Obama-Biden rule was pretty much an ocean of lies. Consider inequality: it became the worst ever, by design. Consider fossil fuels: under Obama, the USA became the greatest producer of fossil fuels, ever. Meanwhile hydrogen research got killed although it is an ecological necessity . Consider healthcare: under Obamacare, US life expectancy went down spectacularly, and it was not because of a Chinese virus.
  • So now we are supposed to elect the organizer of the Iraq destruction, so his friends could frack, the Senator from the world’s top tax haven… And that’s progressive? All jobs, and our destiny going to go back to China, is progressive?
  • Now that have learned to hate a particular individual, what are the progressives supposed to progress towards? Global nuclear feudalism led by hidden finance and monopolistic big tech?
  • Obama & Biden both said they changed, they would not make the same mistakes. They would stop doing nothing. Right. Except they were not mistakes, they were strategies according to the  systems of thoughts and moods of the Global Deep Plutocracy. Biden plan is nothing but big loophole for hyper wealth to regain full control of its future.
  • What Biden will do will be to do what he always did: give more to his class (his father was from the Rockefeller class, as a top executive of American oil), and do it stealthily, secretly, deniably, according to the ways and means of his state of Delaware, the world’s top tax haven, in full cooperation with the plutocratically owned media. That will be all done under a green varnish, paralyzed by fake well meaning “40% redistribution” to the poorest areas, while empowering some more the tech monopolies Biden and Obama put in power. White will be black, and black will be white, until we accept that we understand nothing, and never will. 
  • This obscurantism may well hurt again science and technological progress, as happened under Obama-Biden. Under Trump, budgets in science and technological research have never been so high, by a wide margin, but as in all matters, all what people learned by rote, from the plutocratic media which own their tiny minds, is that anti-science Trump wants to inject them with bleach.
  • Remember: the Germans who voted for Hitler believed they voted for progress. Reality would have taught them otherwise, but they had been imprinted to find reality offensive and that hatred was all they needed.
  • Obama baited us with hope, and switched to increased plutocracy (look at the graph above; it is much worse for the top .1%). Biden did this all his life, transfer ever more assets to the world’s wealthiest families, his friends, and kept being reelected, because the tax haven situation in Delaware made the state ever wealthier.
  • We are facing a world of lies.
  • Not the first time that a nation choses the wrong leadership.
  • Seeing Biden approach the altar to be wed to humanity reminds one of a mass serial killer taking his vows to never do it again once he gets the fresh and innocent bride he always wanted. Really? Do you call that learning?

Absurd Infamy, Convenient Corruption! Some Dems Say: Iraqis Died? Let Them Drive SUVs!

October 15, 2020

Those who make you believe absurdities do so, because they want you to partake in atrocities.

My position on the Ukraine-Obama-Biden corruption story clings to the most significant facts: Joe Biden himself said, while US Vice President, in widely available video, that he would suspend US aid to Ukraine, effective immediately, if Ukraine’s top prosecutor was not fired. His son was employed by the somewhat satanic company the prosecutor was prosecuting.

Hunter Biden held a directorship at Ukraine’s largest gas company, Burisma, while his father was vice president. Hunter Biden’s payments from Burisma were clearly in excess of US average yearly family income… every month. Hunter Biden was paid at least $83,000 a month, but sometimes more than $200,000… It created an obvious conflict of interest for his father… But Hunter kept flying on Air Force Two. VP Joe Biden did not terminate this conflict of interest. Nor did he ever excuse himself for it; for Joe Biden Burisma was just business as usual. 

What Voltaire did not say: Those who make you believe absurdities do so, because they want you to partake in atrocities.

Vice President Joe Biden did urge Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, under the threat of withholding billions of dollars of U.S. aid… immediately (even the crooked “Factchecker” of the Plutocratic Party admits). The top prosecutor was inquiring at the time on Burisma. Burisma was then Ukraine’s second largest gas company. It is registered in Cyprus, a tax haven. It also operates in Germany, Mexico, Italy, and Kazakhstan.

Twitter Inc ( TWTR ) on Thursday blocked U.S. President Donald Trump’s election campaign account from tweeting, saying a video from the account about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son violated its rules.

The video posted by the @TeamTrump account referred to a New York Post story that contained details of Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Burisma and said former Vice President Joe Biden had met with an adviser of the company, introduced by Hunter Biden.

Joe Biden is a liar who has been ripping off our country for years,” the video was captioned.

Twitter said the video violated its rules against posting private information, adding the account needed to delete the post in order to continue tweeting.

Twitter said on Wednesday the Post story violated its “hacked materials” policy, which bars the distribution of content obtained through hacking that contains private information or trade secrets, or puts people at risk of physical harm.

Facebook Inc did the same. Jack Dorsey, the Twitter CEO, got his career started by hacking a company… Instead of being put on trial by the state, Dorsey was hired by the company. Dorsey the hacker was not prosecuted for his crime by the state, a violation of equality of all to the law

This helps explain why hacking of personal information has become a thriving industry: please write your Congressperson thanking them for not prosecuting Dorsey. Led by criminals, fleeced by criminals. Dorsey, with his ten billion dollar fortune obtained through Wall Street banks (not through Twitter profits) is the poster boy of the big Brother society we now enjoy!

Facebook and Twitter took proactive steps on Wednesday to restrict dissemination of the Post story in the hours after it was published… They have been rendering this service to me for decades, free of charge, in a remarkably efficient manner to limit the diffusion of my dangerous ideas. (Twelve years ago Daily Kos, a would be progressive sort of Facebook, banned me for suggesting “Medicare For All”.)

Twitter had placed similar restrictions on the account of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday, after she shared the Post story. 

The Bidens’ Burisma story is not an isolated case: Hunter Biden got money (more than three million dollars) from Moscow’s mayor (OK, the mayor’s spouse… maybe they were having an affair? No, she is a close adviser of Czar Putin himself)… and diamonds from a Chinse tycoon (OK, maybe he is gay, and they were romantically involved), 1.5 billion dollar deal from the Bankf of China, a government bank, and so on (fees on this sort of deal is typically 2%). Consulted, Joe Biden said:”My son has a drug problem…” (Besides, Hunter’s plate was full: Hunter Biden was busy getting a child he refused to recognize until forced by a judge, while receiving the diamonds and having an affair with his brother’s wife…) 

Ah, and let’s not forget the same drug as his father: wealth and power. Firms run by Biden “pursued business with international entities that had a stake in American foreign policy decisions, sometimes in countries where connections implied political influence and protectionHunter Biden and his American business partners were part of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connected Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama administration…” the New York Times reported.

In this new world, led by pseudo-progressive ex-bartenders, information is free, as long as it favors the plutocracy. Otherwise, it is banned. (Don’t laugh: I am on the receiving end… I don’t know how long I can keep on publishing, each post may be the last…) 

Freedom of information should be total, weighted by private life. Total privacy for civilians, none for politicians. Politicians should have no private life, while in office, and should, them and their families, be severely restricted after public office. There is a civilizational jurisprudence for this sort of prudence: it took five centuries for the Roman Republic to fall into plutocracy, because Roman politicians were so restricted that they couldn’t turn their public service into a job. 

Another interesting wink of history is that Caesar was unfairly accused by his enemies to have committed war crimes in Gaul… It was unfair, because neither he, nor the republic, had started the war… Nor was he the first to engage in total war during that decade of hostilities. The point is this: the doctrine of the laws of war was well established even centuries prior to this… And the non-respect of the laws of war was the strongest argument around. This should be in an interesting light the fact that a party in the US selected as candidate for ultimate leadership the only politician against whom crime against humanity charges can be brought.

Hiding the role of Biden in fostering the war in Iraq is an infamy. This absurdity hides an atrocity: the killing of millions so that the US financial plutocracy could make US fracking profitable. 

What do the Biden voting Marie Antoinettes of America hiding in their suburbs say? Iraqis died? Let them drive SUVs!

Is it Criminal To Elect War Criminals? Is Deindustrialization Criminal?

October 11, 2020

IRAQI LIVES DON’T MATTER, FRACKING IS ALL WHAT MATTERS?

Were the Germans who voted for Hitler culprit? Official Common Wisdom says no, but it is manufactured by the powers that be. I say yes, the Germans were culprit. They were inhabited by systematically racist and vicious moods, in the average. Moreover, they strived not to know any better. However, when they voted for Hitler, the Nazis had not yet committed any crimes against humanity yet. The Nazis had not yet killed three millions in Iraq (and never would).

Only a careful examination of Germany in 1932, could perhaps have shown systemic crimes committed by the Nazis, but that was not obvious as the Nazis accused others of mayhem, and the media had been captured by fascism already. Also, the ideology of the Nazis rested on lies, and many of these lies were shared by the German people, and not just the German people, but also many Anglo-Saxon trouble makers … for example, the outrage at the Versailles Treaty… which in truth was mostly a treaty of liberation of land occupied by imperial Germany under a systematically racist system… was systematically promoted by Anglo-Saxon plutocrats and their serving intelligentsia… to this day (2020 CE).  

After the Second World War, the US plutocracy reinstalled the German plutocracy which had put Hitler in power, back in power As Soon As Possible. The official idea presented to the public was general forgiveness for Germany and putting Germany back on its feet ASAP. The real truth was quite different.

The deepest reason to put prominent Nazis, such as Marshall Von Manstein, author of the attack on France, back in power, had its own sinister, and most significant dimension: US plutocracy had put Hitler in power… In the sense that US plutocracy, and this is not in books, nor taught in historically Nazi friendly universities such as Harvard, was the most important factor in putting Hitler in power. The early Nazi Party was completely financed by US plutocrats. Later, in the decade 1923-1933, the American plutocratic and banking connection was also the most important factor in putting Hitler in power (consider Schacht’s connections and role). That is the dimension of Nazism which, unsurprisingly, is neither taught nor revealed… because, if it were understood, and if its subsequent coverup were understood, would have dramatic consequences in the understanding of contemporary society. Understanding the deepest roots of Nazism would show the West has been run as a stealth plutocracy for much longer than is generally suspected, and the world wars were a consequence. Most would find this so upsetting they will prefer to ignore the notion.

What would Caesar think? It may depend whether he would be asked before his assassination, or after

To put it in one nutshell, Nazism was a trick which could only increase the power of the US Deep State, and its entangled plutocracy. The pro-Nazi policy of the US Deep State and its plutocracy was a direct continuation from the pro-racist German policy of Democratic US President Woodrow Wilson, the most racist president the USA ever had. Disconcertingly, but ultimately fortunately, for the US Deep State, Nazism had functioned even better than intended, destroying Europe in general and Russia, Britain and France in particular, clearing the way for the glorious American century.  

So a myth was invented: the Germans were not culprit of Nazism, they were innocent, because they just didn’t know.  In other words, go kill millions in Vietnam or Iraq, you are innocent because you didn’t know. In truth, they didn’t know because they didn’t want to know. Except some, like Muhammad Ali knew, and fought a war against the war, at great risk and discomfort to themselves. 

Systems of thought are enslaved to systems of moods. First they love, or hate, or systematically ignore, then they think. Julius Caesar, in Bellum Gallicum, put it ironically:  

Men freely believe that which they desire.” — 

Thus if one is searching for the root of a collective behavior, one has to search for the moods lurking in its roots. In the case of Germany the mood in 1919 was deeply ingrained in the preceding two centuries and one finds it written down in Keynes’ work (yes the British leader of the Versailles negotiations in 1919): Slavs, in particular Poles were so inferior to Germans, wrote Keynes, that they would mismanage the economy, should they become free of German administration… in Poland. Systemic racism was taken for granted.

Is It Criminal To Offshore Crucial Industry To China?

The question now is what do we find written down which sustains an outrage just as great as the support of US plutocracy for Hitler? It is simple, it is written and shown all over the plutocratic media: the most striking fact, as the pandemic started, was the incapacity of many ex-industrial countries, including France and the USA, to supply enough basic protection equipment for their own populations (unsurprisingly the West’s most industrialized country, Germany, led by a physicist, did the best in fighting the epidemic; Germany, thanks to its industrial basis, has been able to test and track intelligently). 

As late as September 2020, jumbo jets carrying masks landed in France, coming from China and watched over by the armed military as if they were carrying diamonds.  

The striking deindustrialization of most of the West, is a most significant fact: how can people be free if they do not build the most basic things they need? The likes of Paul Krugman have said: do not worry, free trade, new trade theory: we carry nothing but a smile, they will provide us with everything. 

In truth what the West is providing China with is plutocracy. That sounds absurd, but it happened before. When the Roman State collapsed it could have mustered enormous forces and stopped the collapse. But it didn’t want to, because the mood called Christianity had seized the land, and turning the other cheek, to get another slap, was thought superior to forging swords, and training We The People to fight. The Barbarians invading the empire had, altogether at most a couple hundred thousands fighting men over 40 years… and probably much less. The Roman empire could have raised an army of ten millions…

What was going on? Why was that irresistible Roman army not raised, to save civilization? Simple: the last thing the Roman plutocracy wanted was a revolution from We The People. Barbarian invasion was felt to be a lesser evil, as far as the ruling plutocracy was concerned. We know this because the Roman elite intermarried with barbarians early on: the half Vandal Stilicho was regent of the Roman empire by 395 CE, the year when the invasions into the Roman empire became so uncontrolled, that barbarians invaded Italy. 

One of my friend, who had, or has, a US Defense contract, and works for one of the GAFA, commutes to China all the time: he set up his company there, making the same sort of electronics he was under contract with the CIA and the like to furnish. I have interesting friends.

I was talking to a friend of mine who is a big time tenured professor in a famous US university. He works in the sort of field crucial for the Twenty-First century: foundations of robotics from neurology. His rage against Trump is colossal: Trump caused the deaths in the epidemic by dismantling the unit! Trump destroyed the EPA! Trump talks to people in a demeaning way! Trump thinks he is a genius! And it’s not true! He saw it all himself! Trump is the worst, because he captured Patrice Ayme!

Well, yes, what about the money you, my big time university tenured professor friend, get from China? Would it not be better to get it from the USA? This is not a rare case. The head of the Chemistry department in Harvard was arrested for getting secret money from China (although he was also funded by the US government). 

I have seen a university professor, another one, also a friend, from the most prestigious public university in the world, make a business model of the strangest sort. He set up a company exporting to China the result of the scientific research of said university, in exchange for start-up funding. When an in house lawyer called the attention of the CEO that this seemed unlawful, the legal division was summarily closed. The Chinese keep on providing him with dozens of millions: they have set up a mirror company in China which is industrially producing the robots my big time university tenured professor friend driving a Porsche, supplies the know-how for.

When Trump tried to restrict this sort of activity, he was called a racist, and Biden declared he would revert Trump’s decisions. 

The details are arcane to me at this point. However one thing is sure: the deindustrialization of the West has to be stopped, and reversed. Deindustrialization the West hurts everybody: the West, the poor, the ecology, the planet, and even China. Why does Western deindustrialization hurt the planet? Because the solutions out of the unprecedented ecological crisis we suffer, and the biosphere suffers, are scientific and technological, they are not just political and behavioral. Why does Western deindustrialization hurt China? Because China knows the preceding, and wants to forge ahead in its capacity to muster nature, as it has done for 5,000 years. Western know-how has helped China for 5,000 years, and China knows that should be a technological conversation which can only help.

Iraqi Lives Don’t Matter, oil is all what matters?

A question that will be asked to many people for a very long time is this: what were you thinking, what were you feeling when you voted for someone who conspired to kill millions in Iraq, so that Wall Street could invest in fracking? Were you saying, to yourself or others: Iraqi Lives Don’t Matter, oil is all what matters? What were you saying to yourself? That you were just like all those who stood by when the Native Americans got slaughtered? And that you didn’t care?

Of course, you were not like them! You were not like those who stood by as the Native Americans got slaughtered. When the Native Americans got slaughtered, from the deliberate policy of their government, most US citizens were not voting, or not informed, and were not consulted. But in 2020, their descendants were consulted: do you approve enough of the conspiracy to destroy Iraq to elect one of its chief conspirators? If you voted yes, what does that say about you?

DO IRAQI LIVES MATTER? Are Those Voting For Biden Voting For The “Supreme International Crime”?

September 28, 2020

Bush-Biden Attack On Baghdad Iraq, 2003: Shock and Awe!

Charles Manson was an American criminal and cult leader. In mid-1967, he formed what became known as the “Manson Family”. His followers committed nine murders at four locations in July and August 1969. The Los Angeles County district attorney believed that Manson intended to start a “race war“. In 1971, Manson was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder for the deaths of seven people. The prosecution conceded that Manson never literally ordered the murders, but they contended that his ideology constituted an OVERT ACT OF CONSPIRACY. Manson was sentenced to the death penalty for this conspiracy. So Manson’s influence killed nine, and he was condemned to capital punishment. If he had conspired to kill three millions, would he have been nominated to the presidency?

As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when the vote for a war of aggression against Iraq was cast, Biden was at the forefront of the effort to attack Iraq in 2002 and 2003. Biden had set-up a commission to invent reasons for invading Iraq.{“type”:”block”,”srcClientIds”:[“7cbd14bd-7bb3-494b-bbe7-69802f809141″],”srcRootClientId”:””} 

The US government called this sort of massacre, “Shock And Awe”. Plutocratic media has been removing pictures of the bombing of Baghdad by the US in 2003 recently. There is probably no desire to remember this tragedy where Biden was arguably the second most important perpetrator, in the drive towards war, only behind President W Bush himself… Of course Biden later tried to forget the whole thing, and the plutocratic media has helped him that way.

Please consider carefully what this establishment of a commission to invade Iraq means. Biden’s drive to war was not a silly off the cuff remark, or an out of context edited statement, or a silly tweet storm, or a joke. Justifying the invasion of Iraq by carefully invented, vicious lies was Biden’s purposeful main policy and activity for  at least ten months… The invasion of Iraq killed at least two million Iraqis. Upper estimates are up to 3.5 millions.  The war is in a quiet phase now, but it is still going on, and could flare up any time.

Around 10,000 US citizens died (nearly half of them soldiers; the US military used a lot of civilian contractors). And all this mayhem for what exactly? 

At first sight, the attack on Iraq was just to satisfy the inner urges of the three most crucial US leaders at that time (President W. Bush and his two “Democratic” accomplices, Biden and Pelosi.) I call this criminal. War criminal. As we will see, there is a much broader and deeper motivation. That motivation became clearer in the fullness of time. Actually the deep motivation for the Iraq invasion animated the most major US policy in the two decades following the US invasion and mayhem in Iraq. The mayhem and wholesale destruction was no happenstance, as it was made to appear. In truth, it was too well organized, not to have been a plan.

The day the war commenced, Biden told CNN: There’s a lot of us who voted for giving the president the authority to take down Saddam Hussein if he didn’t disarm. And there are those who believe, at the end of the day, even though it wasn’t handled all that well, we still have to take him down.” Who are these “us” Biden is talking about? The “us” from the US Deep State…

Stephen Johnson, a US citizen, and a friend, intervened, to re-establish what passes in the USA for sanity, the madness of the crowd. He wrote: “Calling Biden a war criminal is plainly nuts, so you’re losing credibility with me.”

Well, I am driven by facts, not by whether people have faith in me, as if I were Jesus Christ, who needed the comfort of the crowd to feel good about himself. I have written extensively about the US aggression against Iraq for more than a decade. The Guardian gave a nice synopsis of my position in:

Joe Biden championed the Iraq war. Will that come back to haunt him now?” By Mark Weisbrot”

“The Iraq war has been a prominent, even decisive issue, in recent US presidential elections. That will make Biden’s history a liability. Mon 17 Feb 2020

BIDEN DID VASTLY MORE THAN JUST VOTE FOR THE WAR. Yet his role in bringing about that war remains mostly unknown or misunderstood by the public.

When the war was debated and then authorized by the US Congress in 2002, Democrats controlled the Senate and Biden was chair of the Senate committee on foreign relations. Biden himself had enormous influence as chair and argued strongly in favor of the 2002 resolution granting President Bush the authority to invade Iraq.

“I do not believe this is a rush to war,” Biden said a few days before the vote. “I believe it is a march to peace and security. I believe that failure to overwhelmingly support this resolution is likely to enhance the prospects that war will occur …”

BUT HE HAD A POWER MUCH GREATER THAN HIS OWN WORDS. He was able to choose all 18 witnesses in the main Senate hearings on Iraq. And he mainly chose people who supported a pro-war position. They argued in favor of “regime change as the stated US policy” and warned of “a nuclear-armed Saddam sometime in this decade”. That Iraqis would “welcome the United States as liberators” And that Iraq “permits known al-Qaida members to live and move freely about in Iraq” and that “they are being supported”.

The lies about al-Qaida were perhaps the most transparently obvious of the falsehoods created to justify the Iraq war. As anyone familiar with the subject matter could testify, Saddam Hussein ran a secular government and had a hatred, which was mutual, for religious extremists like al-Qaida. But Biden did not choose from among the many expert witnesses who would have explained that to the Senate, and to the media.

Biden’s selling points as a candidate often lead with his reputation for foreign policy experience and knowledge. But Iraq in 2002 was devastated by economic sanctions, had no weapons of mass destruction, and was known by even the most pro-war experts to have no missiles that could come close to the United States. The idea that this country on the other side of the world posed a security threat to America was more than far-fetched. The idea that the US could simply invade, topple the government, and take over the country without provoking enormous violence was also implausible. It’s not clear how anyone with foreign policy experience and expertise could have believed these ideas.

The Guardian adds: “Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat, and still a Senator in 2020, was on the Senate intelligence committee at the time. Durbin was astounded by the difference between what he was hearing there and what was being fed to the public. “The American people were deceived into this war,” he said…

The resolution granting President Bush the authority to start the invasion of Iraq, which Biden pushed through the Senate, was a major part of that deception. So, too, was the restricted testimony that Biden allowed. The resolution itself contained deceptive language about a number of pretexts for the war, including al-Qaida and weapons of mass destruction that Iraq did not have.

Weisbrot finishes his article this way, re-hashing essays of mine written since 2003… But the truth is worth re-hashing, always, when it is most significant:

“The Iraq war has generally been seen as one of the worst US foreign policy blunders in decades. It fueled the spread of terrorism and destabilized the Middle East and parts of north Africa. “Isil is a direct outgrowth of al-Qaida in Iraq, that grew out of our invasion,” noted President Obama.

More than 4,500 US soldiers, and nearly as many US military contractors, lost their lives; tens of thousands were wounded, with hundreds of thousands more suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Estimates of Iraqi deaths run as high as 1 million.

At the very least, Biden should explain why he played such a major role in winning the authorization from Congress for President Bush to wage this disastrous war.”

Was Biden’s Attack On Iraq Criminal?

When considering if a criminal act happened during a violent action, one has to look at the motivation of the suspect. That’s called Mens Rea in Roman, and contemporary law. It is the intention or knowledge of wrongdoing that constitutes part of a crime, as opposed to the action or conduct of the accused. In the case of the legal person known as the USA, there was a blatant criminal motivation: fracking. Revealingly, the Obama-Biden administration made that motivation blatant.

The US attack on Iraq occurred without a clear UN mandate… because of the frantic efforts of the French Republic… which has the longest historical view: France was a driver of history against extravagant savagery, for 15 centuries.

Biden’s criminal act is not that of a simple vote and arguments in favor of invading Iraq, as Senator Hillary Clinton did. No, Biden invented the entire big lie which Bush used, and made the US media run with it

What are those who claim they intend to vote for Biden, and are exposed to the preceding say? It’s hard for Trump haters to accuse Trump this time (Trump opposed the Iraq invasion, so did I. I got insulted, lost all my friends, got banned from the New York Times… This is when my attitude to Trump started to change, because, to oppose the invasion of Iraq in 2003 from inside the USA, one needed to have more than guts, but also lots of brains and self-confidence)

They can’t accuse Trump, but they can blame the victim. Stephen Jones: “For the record, it was Saddam Hussein that first claimed he had WMDs. Unfortunately, few in the Cheney-Bush administration wanted peace over profits.

Unwittingly, Mr. Jones proved my point. Which profits? Invading a country to exploit its resources is a very well defined war crime. Even for the brutal US Deep State, such a gross violation would have been too much, so it was never the real plan. So, if there couldn’t be any profit made in Iraq itself, the profits could only be made in the USA itself where Cheney, ex-CEO of oil fracking giant Halliburton was massively invested.

For the record too: Saddam lied for internal reasons, but he knew that the Americans knew he had NO Weapons of Mass Destruction whatsoever… And that was confirmed by the UN inspectors going all around Iraq and finding none. So the Bush administration claimed that the weapons, and the laboratories, were on trucks and were moving around. No doubt Biden and Pelosi smiled and clang champagne glasses together about that grotesque fairy tale lie, fostered by their errant boy, General Powell at the UN.

Nuremberg Jurisprudence: WAR OF AGGRESSION IS THE SUPREME INTERNATIONAL CRIME:

In the judgment of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, which followed World War II, “War is essentially an evil thing. Its consequences are not confined to the belligerent states alone, but affect the whole world. TO INITIATE A WAR OF AGGRESSION, THEREFORE, IS NOT ONLY AN INTERNATIONAL CRIME; IT IS THE SUPREME INTERNATIONAL CRIME differing only from other war crimes in that it CONTAINS WITHIN ITSELF THE ACCUMULATED EVIL OF THE WHOLE.[1][2] .

The United States of America is then asked to vote for an accomplice and perpetrator of the “Supreme International Crime”.

Manson’s ideology led to the murder of nine people, from a criminal conspiracy. He was sentenced to death, but he didn’t plan or order the murders. 

How many people died in Iraq because of the US attack? Deliberately, the US military refused to count the bodies. Says even the plutocratic Washington Post, a Trump hating newspaper owned by global monopolist plutocrat Bezos: 

15 years after the Iraq War began, the death toll is still murky

By Philip Bump, March 20, 2018:

Tens of thousands of people died fighting in the Iraq War, which began 15 years ago Tuesday. Nearly 5,000 of them were U.S. service members. Tens of thousands were insurgents battling the transitional Iraqi government put in place after the ouster of Saddam Hussein.

But that figure obscures the actual number of deaths attributable to the conflict. During the war and during the Islamic State militant group’s occupation of as much as a third of the country in recent years, the number of deaths runs into the hundreds of thousands, including civilians killed as a result of violence and, more broadly, those who died because of the collapse of infrastructure and services in Iraq resulting from the ongoing conflict

The Washington Post, and top US universities are owned, directly or not, figuratively, or literally, by US plutocracy. US plutocracy wanted to attack Iraq, to become wealthier and more powerful, so it had interest to underestimate the number of people killed by the US attack. Iraq Body Count, for example, counts only the death appearing in English speaking papers (that’s around 300,000). Studies in The Lancet and New England Journal of Medicine, also infeodate to US and global plutocracy recognized around 700,000 killed by 2006 from the invasion. A general overview by (plutocratic) MIT explains why the numbers published are just a fraction of the real number of deaths (they stop there, lest they displease their wealthy sponsors). Even (plutocratic) Brown University agrees that when the large city of Mosul was retaken, dozens of thousands died. But they have not been counted, observes Brown: most civilian victims were pulverized or returned to the atmosphere after combustion, and their ashes dispersed. 

An Iraqi Kurdish intelligence report estimated that at least 40,000 civilians were killed in the bombardment of Mosul alone, with many more bodies still buried in the rubble.  A recent project to remove rubble and recover bodies in just one neighborhood found 3,353 more bodies, of whom only 20% were identified as ISIS fighters and 80% as civilians. Another 11,000 people in Mosul are still reported missing by their families.

All in all, the Iraq invasion led by Bush, Biden, and authorized by their accomplice Pelosi, killed at least 2.5 million people. Because Pelosi, as Ranking Member of the US Congress Intelligence Committee knew explicitly that the pretext for invading Iraq was a complete lie. Pelosi admitted her her lie on CNN in 2019.

Pelosi said Bush had a right to invade Iraq “because they won the election”. Pelosi justification? She said:”…I knew there were no nuclear weapons in Iraq. It just wasn’t there…. So, I knew it was a – a misrepresentation to the public…in my view, not a ground for impeachment. That was – they won the election. They made a representation. And to this day, people think – people think that that it was the right thing to do.”

Biden, though, maneuvered to invade Iraq before the election. Why did Biden want so much to invade Iraq? Official history doesn’t know. W Bush pretended he hated Saddam because Saddam had tried to kill his dad. But Biden never presented a motivation for his hatred. OK, OK, some will claim I do not know that Biden hated Iraq. They would say Biden just helped to kill ten percent of a country, because he could.

US FRACKING WAS THE MOTIVATION TO INVADE IRAQ:

When wars happen, it is often not clear why, in the heat of the moment. However, in the fullness of times, the real culprits are easier to reveal. However, sometimes, they stay hidden, because the mood in power is adverse to the truth. This needs a full essay: for example why Rome annihilated Carthage is still a hot potato: the plutocracy presently in power would prefer you not to know why, so it promotes in its plutocratic universities historians uninterested by a real explanation.

So why did the US invade Iraq? At the time US leaders claim that Iraqi oil would pay for the invasion (can’t do this, it’s a war crime!) That still did not explain how the US was supposed to profit from the invasion. 

{“type”:”block”,”srcClientIds”:[“a58ed73d-b0c8-45c4-9cbc-a26c5a2d70c1″],”srcRootClientId”:””}The truth is simple: Iraq, with the second oil reserves in the world, saw its oil production killed. In consequence, the price of oil shot up to heights never seen before (above $140 a barril). Capital investment in US FRACKING was profitable at or above $60 a barril. Wall Street was all for it. 

Shortly after the paroxysm of the Iraq war, the ingenue, Barack Obama arrived on the scene, talked of saving the climate, big time, and then proceeded to push US FRACKING as much as possible. Obama called fracking the “bridge fuel” to the “clean-energy future” (even the Washington Post in 2014 found this bridge fuel to the future “not so simple”). Soon the US was the greatest oil producer the world had ever seen, and soon the US was the world’s greatest gas producer the world had ever seen. Biden could only smile that the plot had worked as intended, and Trump haters could only conclude that Trump destroyed the climate.

*** 

Hatred in the service of greed is a common motivation:.

So what about these “Black Lives Matter” signs on the lawns? Do Iraq Lives Matter, too? So why are they not on the lawns, too? Two and a half million killed, does that speak loud enough? It does not? Never had math, never had history? Don’t know about Iraq? Why is that not SYSTEMIC RACISM AGAINST IRAQIS?

The Case Against Handguns, Or Why US Progressives Don’t Progress

August 18, 2020

Selling handguns to the civilian population, is a US specificity. Most handguns in the world, aside from military possession, are owned by US civilians. Some carry 40 bullets or so… There is no justification for it… except for killing and maiming many US residents (a laudable goal, according to some, I must admit).

Outlawing handguns for non-military, non-police, non-threatened civilians: basic civilization 101.
Cause everybody knows criminals always obey the law.
Law enforcement, like health care, is best done by professionals. Police rarely assassinates unjustly a la George Floyd (70 cases a year?) Civilians, though kill dozens of thousands of people they didn’t even want to kill really, once they know all the disagreements that entails… every year…)
Several points here: there were 1004 fatal police shootings in the USA in 2019. The most recent year for all shootings is 2017, and it shows 39,773 deaths from guns. Most gun deaths (including self-inflicted) are from a significant other. In the case of Black Lives Matter, more than 90% of male Black Lives killed violently are killed by other male Black Lives. Some will say; Oh, but Black Lives live among Black Lives, so Black Lives live, cook, sleep and kill together, this is completely normal.
The Black Lives Matter Movement, formed in 2013, financed by plutocrats and their corporations, has protested police brutality in the U.S. by organizing “die-ins”, marches, and demonstrations in response to the killings of black men and women by police. There are around 200 Black Lives killed by police a year in the USA. In 2017, 457 whites were killed by police.

Those who are anti-police think Black Lives Matter so much, they should be free to kill each other as much as they want…

As Black Homicide Victimization puts it:…”black homicide victimization rate is four times the national homicide victimization rate, and more than six times the homicide victimization rate for whites. More than 85 percent of black homicide victims are shot and killed with guns. These facts are both appalling and unacceptable. An important part of ending the gun violence epidemic is to reduce homicides in the African-American community.
So one would think that great progressive Sanders is against handguns. Think again. But he will not tell you this outright. Instead, Bernie is a master of dissimulation. (Don’t accuse me to hate Bernie Sanders, I don’t have Political Derangement Syndrome, PDS: I voted for Bernie Sanders several times…) Here is Bernie Sanders’ gun program, from his web site, it’s most significant for what it doesn’t say:
  • Take on the NRA and its corrupting effect on Washington.
  • Expand background checks.
  • End the gun show loophole. All gun purchases should be subject to the same background check standards.
  • Ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons. Assault weapons are designed and sold as tools of war. There is absolutely no reason why these firearms should be sold to civilians.
  • Prohibit high-capacity ammunition magazines.
  • Implement a buyback program to get assault weapons off the streets.
  • Regulate assault weapons in the same way that we currently regulate fully automatic weapons — a system that essentially makes them unlawful to own.
  • Crack down on “straw purchases” where people buy guns for criminals.
  • Support “red flag” laws and legislation to ensure we keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and stalkers
  • Ban the 3-D printing of firearms and bump stocks

(Bump stocks can make automatic weapons of any gun.) I approve all these measures, of course. But they are all about military weapons… The sort of weapons explaining why US police tends to be trigger happy… There are at least 20 million assault rifles in the USA.

But handguns? Progressive Bernie has never heard of them, he won’t progress that way. The Small Arms Survey stated that U.S. civilians alone account for 393 million (about 46 percent) of the worldwide total of civilian held firearms. This amounts to “120.5 firearms for every 100 residents.”

More than 85 percent of black homicide victims are shot and killed with guns. Bernie Sanders does not mind. The guns. Black Lives Matter not as much as guns.

So today Bernie spoke at the Democratic Convention, supporting for president a guy who didn’t just crucially collaborate to invade Iraq in 2003, but also avoided 500,000 dollars of healthcare tax in two years by posing as an S Corporation. Hey Biden made only 13 million dollars in these two years.

Bernie Sanders attacks the National Rifle Association (see above). It reminds me of Hitler attacking plutocrats (who got him elected). Indeed the NRA financed Bernie Sanders. Official enemies, but, actually collaborators! The NRA did this by handsomely financing attack ads against Sanders opponents…

Sanders lies about guns. Biden lies about health care, or even having common decency. With progressives like that, who needs regression?

How to get out of this mess? By telling the truth. But if one tells the truth about Trump or the Democrats, one gets badly insulted by ignorant, hateful people, so it hurts. But it can be sustained, precisely because they are hateful, ignorant people, similar to mosquitoes, those stinging, ignorant creatures.

Truth hurts, but it is the Truth. And that’s the truth. 

(Trump spent most of his life as a very noisy anti-establishment, anti-globalization Democrat; things got sour when Obama personally attacked him… Then Trump took over the Republican Party; this is why the Republican plutocratic establishment prefers Biden: they hate the We The People agenda of Trump… and love Bernie, or Biden aptitude for lying…)

The truth shall not make us free, but it is a divinity worth worshipping.

Covering Up Susan Rice’s Congenital Deep State Connections

July 30, 2020

Considering that dozens of millions of mail-in ballots will be sent before the first presidential debate (supposing there is one), there is a high probability that Biden will be elected [1]. As Biden indicated he would serve just one term, his VP has a high probability to become president. Kamala Harris is anti-progressive, a will-to-power machine. But Susan Rice is a global plutocratic, that is, satanic pawn, a living depiction of what is wrong with the world Davos oligarchy… Yes at least five million died in Congo, and Rice has everything to do with it.

Biden claims to embrace the progressive agenda, instead of China and plutocracy, as he used to. Wonderful. Only the naive and, or, senile will believe this. It will be all smoke and mirrors… Not to say it will not be an improvement over Trump, especially with green energy. But the great danger is that global plutocracy, headed by the Big Tech Thieves, goes back to the status quo ante, as found under Obama.

Hopefully, Biden will embrace the disingenuous, power hungry Kamala Harris. Kamala Harris is no Obama: she wants power, for herself, she is not pushed into it by CIA (like) operatives (as Obama was). She does what she wants. She is no progressive. Anything to reach the top. She was girl friend to who was long the most powerful politician in California, Willie Brown (who is indeed brown verging on black). Kamala will do anything for power (including uttering pseudo-progressives inanities such as all illegal immigrants getting free health care… while US born citizens are ruined by it…) She lied about busing (Kamala was bused from wealthy are to wealthy area; my own daughter, not bused, is schooled in the dirt poor area two miles west…)

Wall Street and the like are scared of Kamala: from their point of view she is a loose cannon, and she will make sure she becomes president… somebody who thinks by herself, that makes her dangerous: what if Black Lives Matter and its dangerous radical halo, including “Bernie Bros” are still kicking around when she is president, and she decides to go with the flow… instead of doing discreetly what is necessary (as was dine with Occupy Wall Street)?

Clown Clinton and war criminal Kagame (left). Rise served in Clinton’s National Security Council (NSC) from 1993 to 1997 (as director for international organizations and peacekeeping from 1993 to 1995, and as special assistant to the president and senior director for African affairs from 1995 to 1997); and as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs from 1997 to 2001

What the establishment wants is Ms Rice. Because she knows that the establishment knows where the bodies are buried and she buried them herself. Never elected, always empowered, she has been groomed to be a (global) plutocratic operator from birth. Arguably both war criminals, Biden, co-invader of Iraq, and Rice, co-invader of Congo, have deep afinities…

Ms Rice wrote an email to herself in the last few minutes of the Obama administration. The email memorialized the meeting about Russia and Trump two weeks after it happened, claiming Obama wanted to be sure “every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’” “The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective,” the email continued. “He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.” She was told to write that email, it turns out.

Recent articles in the self-declared “liberal” press (truly a tool of international kleptocracy) scrupulously forget Susan Rice’s work for, and with, an impressive panoply of dictators. … To insure the procurement of precious minerals for the high tech industry… Articles in the new York Times fail to mention that Ms. Rice is a power structure heir: her father sat on the Federal Reserve board. Hence the high responsibilities jobs she was offered at a very young age. Nor do the articles mention the deep, affectionate and numerous ties of Ms. Rice with several African dictators [2]. Ms. Rice was on the payroll of the Rwandan dictator Kagame, for many years, acting as his publicist. Finally her investment in companies bringing Canadian tar sand oil to the US, in the millions of dollars, is not mentioned, either. This happened while she served in the Obama administration.

[2] Rice refused to ask the US trained pet and dictator Paul Kagame of Rwanda to stop his war in Congo. This was thoroughly documented by the NYT even nearly a decade ago. The NYT also let an Ethiopian activist criticize Rice’s adoration of the late Meles Zenawi, dictator of Ethiopia.

Rice, an Africa manipulation specialist, invested in young, progressive-seeming operatives such as Kagame, Zenawi and Yoweri Museveni in Uganda. And kept on sticking with them when they turned out to be not so progressive after all… but instead bloody, war mongering tyrants.Even the NYT reported that Rice watered down a United Nations resolution condemning Kagame’s support for Congo’s M23 rebels, whose recent invasion of Goma, the major eastern Congo city, was internationally condemned. Even the so-called “liberal” press had to admit that Kagame had been a personal client of hers at Intellibridge, a Washington consultancy Rice worked for during George W Bush’s presidency.

War Criminal Susan Rice For VP? Perfect Match With Iraq Invading Biden!

June 15, 2020

This is just a note for the future, I want my conscience clear. Let it not be said I didn’t scream in time. “Biden” has been considering a possible Vice President, in particular Senators Warren and Harris, both certified liars… But it’s hard to be in elected politics at a high level, and not be a liar. 

Susan Rice, though, is a completely different bird. She always circulated in the highest spheres of the plutocracy, per her right of birth. She represents the Deep Plutocratic State at its ugliest, and most criminal. She is the daughter of her dad, who sat on the Federal Reserve. Never elected, she made friends with all the possible African dictators she could find, who probably filled up her pockets or that of devices she had interest in. She invested millions in companies building pipelines which the Obama administration was supposedly opposed to… but made it so that those pipelines ultimately got built (some of the last screws may have been tightened under the Trump administration, enabling fake denial).

Rice Susan You Don't Like Plutocracy. Too Bad, That's What All You have, Coackroach

Here is the New York Times, plutocratic paper per excellence, and thus not susceptible of being anti-Rice, Rice being a trusted undertaker of plutocracy: 

U.N. Ambassador Questioned on U.S. Role in Congo Violence, By Helene Cooper. Dec. 9, 2012.

WASHINGTON — Almost two decades after the Clinton administration failed to intervene in the genocide in Rwanda, the United States is coming under harsh criticism for not moving forcefully in another African crisis marked by atrocities and brutal killings, this time in Rwanda’s neighbor, the Democratic Republic of Congo.

While President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton have taken some of the blame, critics of the Obama administration’s Africa policy have focused on the role of Susan E. Rice, the United States ambassador to the United Nations and a leading contender to succeed Mrs. Clinton, in the administration’s failure to take action against the country they see as a major cause of the Congolese crisis, Rwanda.

Specifically, these critics — who include officials of human rights organizations and United Nations diplomats — say the administration has not put enough pressure on Rwanda’s president, Paul Kagame, to end his support for the rebel movement whose recent capture of the strategic city of Goma in Congo set off a national crisis in a country that has already lost more than three million people in more than a decade of fighting. Rwanda’s support is seen as vital to the rebel group, known as M23.

Support for Mr. Kagame and the Rwandan government has been a matter of American foreign policy since he led the Tutsi-dominated Rwandan Patriotic Front to victory over the incumbent government in July 1994, effectively ending the Rwandan genocide. But according to rights organizations and diplomats at the United Nations, Ms. Rice has been at the forefront of trying to shield the Rwandan government, and Mr. Kagame in particular, from international censure, even as several United Nations reports have laid the blame for the violence in Congo at Mr. Kagame’s door.

A senior administration official said Saturday that Ms. Rice was not freelancing, and that the American policy toward Rwanda and Congo was to work with all the countries in the area for a negotiated settlement to the conflict.

Aides to Ms. Rice acknowledge that she is close to Mr. Kagame and that Mr. Kagame’s government was her client when she worked at Intellibridge, a strategic analysis firm in Washington. Ms. Rice, who served as the State Department’s top African affairs expert in the Clinton administration, worked at the firm with several other former Clinton administration officials, including David J. Rothkopf, who was an acting under secretary in the Commerce Department; Anthony Lake, Mr. Clinton’s national security adviser; and John M. Deutch, who was director of the Central Intelligence Agency.”

Why should a top US official being ‘close” to the dictator of Rwanda, and notorious mass murderer?Because being “close” to such dictators is Ms. Rice’s job, that’s what she did, throughout Africa.

Wars in East Congo killed more than five million people. They were useful wars. They fed Coltan, Cobalt and other precious minerals to the US dominated high tech industries (such as Apple, Inc.). All along Kagame was a US pawn, transforming a sleepy French speaking backwaters into a conflict ridden, US dominated English speaking let’s eliminate-whoever-is-in-the-way-of-profits kill zone. The notorious Rwanda civil war started in the 1950s, when the Tutsi monarchy was overthrown by a Hutu led Republic. US special ops then financed an army, the Rwandan Popular Front. War started with the RPF invading north-eastern Rwanda, advancing 60 km (37 mi) into the country in 1990. It suffered a major setback when its leader Rwigyema was killed in action on the second day. The Republican Rwandan Army, assisted by troops from France, gained the upper hand and the RPF were largely defeated by the end of October. Kagame, who had been in the United States during the invasion, returned to take command.

***

On the evening of 6 April 1994, the airplane carrying Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana and Burundian president Cyprien Ntaryamira, both Hutu, was shot down with surface-to-air missiles as it prepared to land in Kigali, capital of Rwanda. Since 2018, we know for sure these missiles came from Uganda (that is from Rice’s friend Kagame), not Rwanda…

The French anti-terrorist magistrate Jean-Louis Bruguière opened an investigation into the shootdown on behalf of the families of the French aircraft crew. On the basis of hundreds of interviews, Bruguière concluded that the assassination had been carried out on the orders of Paul Kagame, and issued arrest warrants against nine of Kagame’s aides in 2006. One of them was arrested by the German government. The Rwandan dictatorship then broke off relations with France. 

In February 2008, a 182-page indictment and international arrest warrants were issued against 40 current or former high-ranking Rwandan military officials of the Rwandan Patriotic Army/Rwandan Defence Forces by the Spanish Investigative Judge Fernando Andreu of the Audiencia Nacional. They were charged with a number of serious crimes between 1990 and 2002, including the shootdown of Habyarimana’s plane.

***

As dirty as it gets:

In her memoir, Tough Love, Rice disinforms the UN’s decision to abandon Rwanda as the Belgians’: “Once their peacekeepers were slaughtered,” she writes, “the Belgians decided to withdraw their battalion…they appealed to the US, as a NATO ally to back their decision.” 

But Belgian descriptions of what happened suggest the decision to pull out was primarily Washington’s.  The evening after the shooting down of the presidential plane, Belgian army Chief of Staff Jose Charlier told Luc Marchal, the most senior Belgian officer in Rwanda, that Belgium was planning to ask the UN Security Council to reinforce the mission with additional troops and supplies.  In his chilling memoir Shake Hands with the Devil, Canadian general Romeo Dallaire who oversaw the entire UN mission in Rwanda wrote, “If we were given a new mandate and the necessary force, we might be able to get the two parties [that is the Rwandan government and Kagame’s rebellious Rwandan Patriotic Front] back to the negotiating table.”

But six days later, Marchal was informed that the entire Belgian contingent was to be withdrawn. With the Belgians fleeing, there was little appetite for continued intervention and other countries withdrew their contingents too, and the world looked on as the genocide unfolded.

What brought the Belgian change of heart?  Sources within the peacekeeping force indicate that in the days after the plane crash, Belgian ambassador to the UN, Paul Noterdaeme, met with his US counterpart Madeleine Albright, who indicated there would be no larger force, giving Belgium little choice but to withdraw its troops.

President Bill Clinton has apologized for this disastrous decision. Superficially, the fatal decision was Albright’s and Clinton’s, not Rice’s; but as director for international organizations and peacekeeping at the National Security Council, Rice would, at the least, have been influential… as a specialist in African studies—having completed a PhD in the subject.Rice took time out from government during George W. Bush’s presidency to work as a publicist for Paul Kagame, the ruthless dictator who seized power in Rwanda after the genocide, and she has also big time friendly with Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni, and Ethiopia’s Meles Zenawi.  

When Kagame and fellow dictator and backer Ugandan Yoweri Museveni invaded Congo in 1996, and again in 1998, launching conflicts that cost millions of lives, Rice denied that the US gave them the greenlight. That is all impossible. Independent scholars who’ve studied the matter, including Philip Roessler and Harry Verhoeven, suggest she organized all these wars.  

This is a case like World War One and World War Two: who, what profited from the wars?… The usual suspects: US plutocrats. 

As Black Stars news put it:

SUSAN RICE, A SUPPORTER AND ENABLER OF TYRANNY IN AFRICA SHOULDN’T BE BIDEN’S RUNNING MATE:

“In 2012, a group of UN investigators reported that both Kagame and Museveni were backing a brutal rebel group called M23, that was wreaking further havoc in Congo. Rice, now US ambassador to the UN tried to suppress the report. Then, in 2014, she greenlighted Uganda’s intervention in South Sudan, which greatly prolonged that conflict too.  In 2015, she stood in the way of a Security Council effort to place sanctions on South Sudan’s leaders which might have helped bring them to negotiating table, sparing that country years of war.

When confronted with the evidence of Uganda and Rwanda’s support for M23 (and up to M24… M27…), Rice reportedly said, it didn’t matter if Uganda and Rwanda were supporting brutal militias in Congo, because if they weren’t, “some other group” would do the same. 

The plight of Africa’s people seldom receives much public attention. This is not because the region doesn’t have enormous strategic significance; after all, it is where most of the minerals—from coltan to lithium-that go into the devices that power the global economy come from. It is because of such casually racist attitudes as this.”

***

Clearly, the spirit, if not the hand, of Susan Rice and certainly of the immense resources of that of her immensely wealthy and powerful mentors, were behind all this. Everybody using a smartphone would be smart, according to cynics, to thank Rice.   

So what happened to California Senator Kamala Harris? My preferred liar? Harris is a tough ex-prosecutor. She would be harder to control than Susan Rice. Susan Rice not only knows where the bodies are buried, but the powers that be know she knows that they know all her past dirty dealings (as they set them for her), and she would make an ideal president. Harris could turn out as hard to control as Trump. No good, as far as the Plutos know.

Rice didn’t stand on the neck of a guy for nine minutes, she stood on the neck of a continent for not just nine years, but twenty-seven years, and that has turned very lucrative for the powers that be. A perfect candidate, perfectly symbolic of the Biden puppet candidacy…

Biden: If You Have To Decide Between Me And Trump, “You Ain’t Black”… But “I will Beat Joe Biden”!

May 22, 2020

By selecting Biden, the quintessential plant for the plutocracy, not too bright, but very greedy, the so-called “Democrats” have provided us with serious comedy. (BTW, I am a registered Dem, so I have a bias towards comedy.) Very greedy? His son Hunter flew with him as vice President to China, in Air Force Two… and walked out with a billion and a half deal. This is not corruption but business as the Romans used to say in the Late Empire. Ah, and how come the Democratic voters are so corrupt? Because they have been programmed by the plutocratic media. The New York Times in particular has been controlled by the same (originally Jewish) family since the Nineteenth Century.

Arthur Hays Sulzberger (September 12, 1891 – December 11, 1968) was the publisher of The New York Times from 1935 to 1961.  His parents were Cyrus Leopold Sulzberger, a cotton-goods merchant, and Rachel Peixotto Hays. They came from old Jewish families, Ashkenazi and Sephardic, respectively His great-great-grandfather, Benjamin Seixas,brother of the famous rabbi and American Revolutionary Gershom Mendes Seixas of Congregation Shearith Israel, was one of the founders of the New York Stock Exchange. His great-grandfather, Dr. Daniel Levy Maduro Peixotto, was a prominent physician, director of Columbia University’s Medical College and a member of the Philolexian Society. His great granduncle was Jacob Hays, the High Constable of New York from 1801 to 1850.

NYT Arthur Hays Sulzberger Hitler’s Friend and Collaborator. Some will say: Oh, just a publisher… but most influential, and of Nazi propaganda.

You would think that with so much Jewishness piled up, the NYT would be very keen to save the lives of Jews. Well, think again. Greed beats breed.

AHS became publisher when his father-in-law, Adolph Ochs, the previous Times publisher, died in 1935. In 1929, AHS founded Columbia’s original Jewish Advisory Board and served on the board of what became Columbia-Barnard Hillel for many years. He served as a University trustee from 1944 to 1959 and is honored with a floor at the journalism school. He also served as a trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation from 1939 to 1957

All of this to say that, when the Nazis, financed by the likes of Henry Ford, JP Morgan’s agents, etc. appeared, and started to kill Jews, Arthur Hays Sulzberger had his newspaper publish only lies on the most important subject: because lies are greedy, and so was the US plutocratic society engaged with Hitler… In many ways comparable to the present US plutocratic society engaged with Chinese dictator Xi. Actually plutocracy 2020 is mostly a direct descendant of plutocracy 1940.

Make no mistake: many were screaming the truth, including the French and Polish governments (what was left of them, anyway), and various Jewish organizations. bu the New York Times didn’t tolerate discordant voices. Just as now, when they censor a long time subscriber such as yours truly… as they did it during the Pelosi-Biden driven Iraq war invasion preparation. In other words, they did not learn the most important lesson: harmony comes from dissordance mastered, not from discordance, ignored.  

So Biden said he had 40 years of experience, enough to beat… Joe Biden. Right, very deep, for once, but… didn’t sound very good. Hence the New York Times immediately published an article certifying that Biden had said he was going to “be” Joe Biden. Biden did not say he would “beat” Joe Biden. Get it? It’s in the NYT, it has got to be true, this side of Hitler.

But then, well, reality intruded grossly and the NYT had to print: Mr. Biden also made clear that he felt there was no reason black Americans would consider voting for Mr. Trump.“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t black,” Mr. Biden said.”

I sent a little comment right away, which was not published, or then maybe published next week, when nobody reads it (so the weasels can feel they are tolerant of the smirky mouse). Imagine thousands of censor beavers, all over the US media, trying to make the Biden-Xi system look good, never mind Hong Kong being enslaved 27 years early…. Here is my censored comment:

It’s clear that Joe Biden is going to “beat” Joe Biden. In any case, when people realize that, among other things, in 2002, being the chair of the Senate Foreign Relation Committee, Biden invented the Weapon of Mass Destruction argument to justify the invasion of Iraq… which was, after a few months, adopted by Bush, who had just as disingenuously claimed Hussein supported Al Qaeda. The Bush Al Qaeda argument to invade Iraq got no traction, but the Biden WMD argument worked… because Democrat Nancy Pelosi, who was then the Ranking Member of the Congress Intelligence Committee did not reveal that she was explained in great detail that the argument was a complete lie, and just a fake reason to go to war.

4,500 US troops died in Iraq, 32,000 were wounded, and up to 2.4 million Iraqis killed… Once this, just this little Iraq adventure is known, and meditated upon, being Joe Biden will smell very differently… 

Some will ask what the motivation could be for invading and destroying Iraq? Well, Iraq’s oil reserves, the second largest in the world, were then removed from the market (and have mostly stayed this way). That made fracking in the USA, which was financed by Wall Street, very profitable. (Only if oil was above $60/barrel.) Fracking was developed massively under the Obama-Biden administration. 

It’s not just the dignity and intelligence of blacks which is demeaned, but of the whole population.

***

As far as the game with Xi is concerned, just watch Bill Gates going all around for Xi. Precedent? Watson, the head of IBM, going all out for Hitler. Watson managed Nazi IBM from New York, throughout the war, because IBM had a monopoly on computation and Hitler couldn’t have done anything without IBM. Meanwhile, the NYT had spent the crucial first nine years of Hitler’s Reich denying that the Jews were getting killed by the minions of US plutocracy.

Oh, and how did Billy boy, the college drop-out make his money? Well, he got the contract from IBM to use the operating system called DOS (Disk Operating System) basically stolen from universities (that is, whether private or not publicly financed institutions [1]). And who was on IBM’s board? His mom! of course, the world’s most generous person. Plutocracy is hereditary, or is not.

Hitler repeating itself? Not really: we have nukes now. They work faster than ovens.

Ooopsss… turns out the guy who wrote the preceding article was paid by Microsoft, and IEEE didn’t know about that until well after publishing it.

Microsoft stole the “86-DOS” operating system, owned by Seattle Computer Products, and written by Tim Paterson. Bill Gates conned Tim Paterson into signing over all the rights to 86-DOS for only $5,000, without telling him that it was for what would become the most famous operating system in the world. Plutocrats, those with Evil-Power, are tricky, that’s why the devil is called “le Malin” in French, the crafty one, who is… malignant…

P/S: I didn’t say I would vote for Trump, BTW…

 

Biden Real Story

April 29, 2020

What is Biden’s story which is never told?

That as a very young “Democratic” Senator, Biden helped pass Reagan’s plutocratic globalist legislation in the 1980s? [0].

That Biden passed the laws which sent millions of minorities to prison in the 1980s? I know the case of a Black gentleman who was sent to prison for life for holding some drug paraphernalia. He has three children. It took years of efforts on the part of my spouse and the intervention of the friend, the president (Obama), to get him out.

Is Biden going to tell us the story of how, as head of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, he invented the myth of Iraq having Weapons of Mass Destruction? So not only did Biden vote to invade Iraq, he championed the destruction of the country. After six months of efforts, Bush adopted that myth, and this enabled Bush to invade Iraq, killing millions of people on the other side of the planet: reality overwhelms fiction, now US so-called “liberals” love that guy, Biden, who made all that mayhem possible [1].

Why so much admiration for the Biden led invasion of Iraq from the so-called, self-described “liberals”? Do “liberals” love that Biden “liberated” millions of Iraqi souls? Does that satisfy his accomplice in war crime Nancy Pelosi, third personage of the USA, who evokes the Bible continually? Is Biden so admired because they were told that was an admirable feat, an invasion that would make America great? Can self-described “liberals” imagine such an absurdity, or are they too scared? Or do they oppose Trump because Trump opposed the invasion of Iraq?

And what of Obamacare? It made healthcare more expensive and unattainable for most, and the proof is, life expectancy in the USA has been on a nose dive, for several years now, as never before… And still, plenty of Obama admirers, and many Biden admirers, lauds Obamacare, calling it a signature achievement.

Is Biden going to tell us how Obama’s push for fracking made the US the greatest producer of oil and gas that ever was? While being viewed as most ecological?

Is Biden going to tell the story of his herculean feats, raising monopoly powers and inequality to heights never seen before? How wealthy donors were rewarded shamelessly? [2].

Mass delusion pushed that far is the ultimate horror, and devastation.

War criminal in action, for all to see. Senate Foreign Relations Com. Chairman Joe Biden Bringing The Hammer Down On Iraq: let’s kill whatever number of Iraqis we need to kill to stop Iraqi Oil production, so we will increase the price of oil, thus increase US fracking, and please Wall Street and nice billionaires (whom it’s so good to know). Somebody’s gotta do it. What do you think of my WMD trick, dear George? When one brings the subject up with masturbating “liberal Americans” these days, they scoff, and say it was long ago. So was Von Ribbentrop, the nazi Foreign Minister, who was hanged for only one charge: misleading everybody, including Hitler, to make the war of aggression against Poland possible.

Those creatures have had too much power, for too long, to still be fully human.

Voting for Biden will be a moral choice. It’s also an epistemological, a cognitive test. Many democrats I talked to told me it didn’t matter whether Biden is a war criminal, or not. Do they even understand what they are saying? No.

Biden Real Story: Serving The Worst. Forty years of public disservice to prove it. Some have said to my face that it doesn’t matter how many millions Iraqis were killed. But, to me, it does matter to confront Nazism and Nazi like creatures, ready to trample the world to satisfy their greed for power.

[0] Obama viewed as an electoral argument to express how much he admired Reagan… ourse it’s difficult to explain to Obama voters that Reagan was bad for them. But Reagan was deeply bad: he is the one who launched, as governor of California, tuition for PUBLIC universities…

Trump fought Reagan about globalization, in the 1980s (even starting a presidential campaign). Just as the 1920s and 1930s with Germany, Italy and Spain, even Japan, globalization of giant US companies enabled said companies to evade US legislation while making deals with dictators. One result was Hitler, and various local tin pots dictators, even Stalin. Another now has been encouraged and fortified, same method, same effect, the Chinese dictator Xi.

***

[1] Here is Joe Biden, as Chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 2002: “In my judgment, President Bush is right to be concerned about Saddam Hussein’s relentless pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and the possibility that he may use them or share them with terrorists,” Biden said at an August 2002 hearing.

These weapons must be dislodged from Saddam Hussein, or Saddam Hussein must be dislodged from power…

***

[2] When Biden was Vice President, his boss, Obama, engaged enthusiastically in the time-honored tradition of hooking up his major donors, giving ambassador posts to 31 “bundlers” who raised at least $50,000 for his campaign. That insured that those individuals would be nice to Obama in Obama’s present career, begging right and left for crumbs from plutocrats and their organizations.  Almost all of these ambassadorial posts were “in Western European nations or other highly developed and stable countries such as Canada and New Zealand,” according to the Center for Public Integrity (including large powers such as France, where som plutocrat was sent). A local wealthy woman (wealthy from marrying a wealthy man) I had been invited at the mansion of, and so was Obama, became ambassador to Switzerland…

Shockingly, but unsurprisingly, several of these ex-ambassadors have been bundling checks for Biden in this 2020 presidential campaign. Having seen this dirty crew at work under Obama sank me into depression at the time. Now I have switched to rebellion, which is much more comfortable.

Biden billionaire backers can only give $2,800 per election per person to the Biden campaign. That’s why toddlers are making gifts (as happened under Obama). Some millionaires are bundling checks from their wealthy friends. But Biden has conveniently flip flopped on super PAC support. So these diabolical Monopoly Men and Women now funnel endless amounts of money into outside ads supporting Biden, sculpting US politics into their thing. Right, it happened in the 1920s and the result was Hitler…. And the advancement of many a US plutocrat whose descendants now pull the string of countless foundations, universities, and secret influencing channels. The super PAC Unite the Country made its first ad buy in the Iowa campaign, for $650,000. Unite the Country is led by corporate lobbyists, consultants, and party fundraisers.

What of Trump, some will lash out, why don’t you focus on Trump? Well, Trump doesn’t pretend to be the opposite of what he is… And he is an excellent weapon, as he fights the globalization the Democrat leaders engineered, starting with Reagan. It’s easier to fight an enemy than a traitor who pretends to be your friend after lying about all what he and his accomplices did, planting all these knives in your back.

Let me repeat slowly. Trump and Biden are persons. In law there is a notion of moral persons (an old French legal notion recently embraced by the US Supreme Court). So a company can be a moral person. Viewed at it that way, globalization itself can be viewed as a moral creature, a moral monster… much bigger than individuals such as Trump or Biden. What is sure is that Trump condemns the eight trillion dollars (he keeps on repeating) spent in the Middle East for no good reason (including the Iraq invasion, mostly done, as I keep on repeating, to bolster the price of oil and making Wall Street’s massive fracking investment possible… under Obama). Trump also condemns the delocalization of industry to China, the exact same trick used in Rome… And the reality is MONOPOLY powers were augmented under Obama considerably. The impeachment surfaced exactly when a deal had been made with Congress to attack the MONOPOLY problem, and its patent aspect. It cannot be possibly a coincidence.

Trump should evoke the Defense Procurement Act to re-established the Patent System demolished by Obama. it is a question of national security that inventors can be rewarded for their inventions. As it is, Monopoly Powers can block any small inventor by stealing their inventions… Obama used to crow about making sure only monopolies could profit from inventions… That killed inventions: inventors had to file in Europe, or China!

***

P/S, More details: The New York Times went on and on about how wise Stephen King was about hating Trump, in a long interview. So I sent a comment (part of it above). It was of course censored (others were allowed to comment on Biden, as long as they sang his praises, or offer very mild critiques). Why do I pay the NYT? Just a multi-decade habit, a drug addiction of mine? Or do I subscribe so that I can see a major newspaper insulting truth, and me? Yes. Studying Pluto propaganda, live. Nothing like it.

Meanwhile a past Biden staffer, Tara Reade, filed against him a sexual assault charge. It is corroborated in multiple ways (including by one Democrat who used to be Tara’s neighbor, and who intends to vote for Biden!) The Pluto Monopoly press has scrupulously ignored the sex attack… although one of the most damning piece of evidence comes from CNN’s Larry King itself! Biden is so impervious to the notion of sexism, he called Kamala Harris, Senator of California, “kid”.

When Biden went to China in an official visit with his son Hunter in November 2013, Hunter was hunting for big money, big like a billion dollars, and Hunter, and Joe, connected with Jonathan Li, a Chinese banker (thus an official of the government). Here is the New York Times in What We Know About Hunter Biden’s Business in China

Hunter Biden has been a member of the board of BHR since it was formed in late 2013.

…in early December 2013 in Beijing. Mr. Biden, who had traveled to China on official business as vice president, met and shook hands with his son’s business associate, Jonathan Li, in the lobby of the hotel where the American delegation was staying, according to an account in The New Yorker. The magazine said Hunter Biden had arranged the encounter with Mr. Li, who was headed for a post as BHR’s chief executive…

Several days after the trip, BHR won a business license from the Chinese government…

To raise funds, BHR teamed up with some of China’s leading state-owned financial companies, including its biggest indirect shareholder, Bank of China, as well as China Development Bank and the country’s social security fund, according BHR’s website. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2014 that the firm was seeking to raise $1.5 billion.

“Almost any senior name that I start researching, I run into practices like this. It is extraordinarily widespread,” Sarah Chayes, the author of the book “Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security,” said in an interview on National Public Radio on Thursday. “How did we all convince ourselves that this isn’t corrupt?”

Yes, corruption threatens global security: we got the virus from it. (By the way it’s ex French Prime Minister Raffarin, a man who made a fortune in China, who arranged for the P4 lab in Wuhan, the only one in China. So the global corruption dealing with German fascism in the 1920s and 1930s, which the US is presently repeating with the Chinese dictatorship, is now enthusiastic supported by the French… Who had not messed up with Hitler…).

Post P/S: The New York Times informed me, after the publication of this present essay and the one before that (which evoked the NYT’s censorship of that particular comment), that my comment was published… 48 hours late, and when nobody will read it, as intended… This way the NYT can claim I was not de jure censored… although I was, de facto, namely the NYT readers didn’t see my comment… This little game has happened hundreds of times…

What If Obama Were On Trial? Well, He Should Be! On Obama-Biden Firing Ukraine Prosecutor

January 26, 2020

I used as (first part of the) title, the title of an editorial of the New York Times January 26, 2020. Consider Trump’s impeachment from some other angles, says Nicholas Kristof, Opinion Columnist. I usually like Kristof, but here it’s open season on him after he refused to post my comment (or will publish it in 2 days, which comes down to the same). After some padding over 30 lines or so, Kristof grandly declares: 

In practical terms, this amounts to: What if it were Obama who had been caught in this Ukraine scandal?…. Progressives may be scoffing that this exercise is unrealistic: Obama was meticulous in avoiding scandal and ethical conflicts.

Thus Kristof makes clear that it is NOT something which happened… As a matter of course. This is high level disinformation on Kristof’s part: there is plenty of evidence to the contrary, but it is found in (some) foreign media (“Consortium News”), and it’s hidden from the US public. To keep it hidden from those reading NYT comments, my comment, a comment from a fanatical progressive, but also fair, balanced and clever, was censored.

To go on imprinting on such a grotesque lie, the grandiosity of Saint Obama, the New York Times in its plutocratic wisdom decided NOT to publish my comment. Indeed, Obama is little more than a stooge for plutocracy, including the literally dirtiest sort, the financial and fossil fuel/fracking plutocracy (fracking is Wall Street burning planet for profit). Obama is going to be rolled out if the old stooge Biden, or the new stooge Buttigieg, falter. The latter possible development would mean that Sanders (probably) or Warren (possibly) is going to be candidate. That’s when the biggest stooge of them all would be rolled out.

Most of the plutocrats don’t pay taxes. One could even view this as their definition: plutocrats have so much power that the laws are arranged to serve them. Consider subsidies on private jets, making 1% of US CO2… Of course the establishment is not just terrified of a Sanders presidency. It fears even more every day that Sanders keeps on advertising and explaining his “Democratic Socialism”. So it’s important, for the established plutocracy, that Obama damages Sanders… thus that Obama’s astounding aura remains intact. 

Well, maybe one didn’t look at what was impeachable in Obama’s actions. Obama apparently ordered personally drone strikes (instead of leaving the decisions to professionals themselves part of a hierarchy in oversight position). The president directly ordered the killing of US citizens without trial for Islamist propaganda (rather than murder). At least one of these US citizens was not adult, but 16 years old.

(Analogy to the decay of the Roman Republic: Cicero, self-proclaimed defender of the Republic, seemed to consider that extra-judicial execution were the way to go. He used them as Consul during the “Conspiracy of Catiline”. Much later, more stupidly, and dangerously, he tried to use such a denial of justice against Marcus Antonius…)

Second and more importantly, there is the interference in Ukraine. VP Joe Biden said loud and clear for all to hear, that he didn’t interfere in other countries policies. However, more recently he was on tape boasting of the exact opposite… in connection with the Burisma Holdings investigation.

Here is my terrible anti-plutocratic comment, which the New York Times depicts as lacking “civility”:

Vice President Joe Biden warned Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that, if he did not fire the very experienced Procuror General Viktor MykolayovychShokin, the Obama administration was prepared to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees. Biden: “I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ They said:”Son of a bitch” He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid.” 

The Ukrainian Parliament refused initially to accept the resignation of the procuror general Viktor Mykolayovych Shokin. The “solid” man was Yuriy Lutsenko a Ukrainian MP who was forced to resign in 2010, and condemned to 4 years in jail for corruption. Lutsenko has no law degree. Considering the later point, a special law was passed. Biden claimed, on tape, that he was following Obama’s orders.

***

For skeptics, here is Biden on tape, bragging about firing the prosecutor who was inquiring about the embezzlement (at least 40 million dollars) of Hunter Biden’s company, Burisma Holdings:

https://www.wsj.com/video/opinion-joe-biden-forced-ukraine-to-fire-prosecutor-for-aid-money/C1C51BB8-3988-4070-869F-CAD3CA0E81D8.html

***

It’s incredible to know that journalists and editorialists at the New York Times can look at themselves in a mirror, and not blush. What do they think they do as they foster plutocracy, using the basest method, that of the Big Lie? On the same Sunday edition (26 Jan 2020) where my comment was censored, there were interviews of whom the NYT views as the most important six Democratic candidates. Two were very wealthy multimillionaires, many times over. Two other were multibillionaires. The latter two, Bloomberg and Styer, have already spent, together eight times the total spending war chest of Trump. Yes they spent eight times, already, what Trump will spend in the future. Plus they get free advertising in the New York Times. Bernie Sanders in all this? He gets scathing editorial after scathing editorial, while Bloomberg gets lauded…

I got the electronic version of Kristof editorial, early on, Saturday. It had a long section explaining all the bad things Trump did NOT do. I sent my comment, it was censored. Then the NYT went on publishing more than 1,000 comments…. But also modifying Kristof’s editorial before it went to print by removing the section explaining all what Trump didn’t do (but has been accused of doing by the lying anti-Trumpists)
