It saddens me to see the mindless knee jerk reactions that takes place within the citizenry of this country every time the US government cries boogeyman.
Is it because they need someone to lash out at?
Or is it because the angst from the cold war still persists?
Do the American people need someone to hate , someone to blame to feel that they have a purpose?
Or is it simply a need to justify their lack of backbone against their own government?
Do they justify it because their cowardice or ignorance does not allow them to fight back?
Can we as a people not open our eyes and understand that our government is responsible for veiled terrorism throughout the world?
Can we not see that the War on Terror is not against an unknown enemy out to get us . But rather a war against us to achieve not only our subjugation through fear. It strives to bring us to our knees slowly removing our rights at our behest in exchange for their protection from terror they manufacture.
With all the evidence that has been made available worldwide of the role the US government played in the fabrication of evidence to enter into illegal wars abroad. The evidence pointing to black ops to destabilize other countries. The wanton disregard for human life in drone attacks. The lies being told abroad and at home by a government that violates not only International Law but the very Constitution they swore to protect and defend here at home.
What is wrong with Americans who rush to believe the lies of this government and their mouthpiece mainstream media?
Do you not have eyes to see and ears to hear what is truly going on around you?
You play into the media propaganda they have set up for you and you gladly fall into the trap.
You ignore the cries of the People of Crimea and hear only the battle cries of the Ukrainian Opposition . An opposition that has now proven their true intent by selling the Ukrainian people up the river , delivering them into European style Austerity.
Is that what your democratic dreams for the Ukraine consist of ?
Is that what you will allow to happen here at home when they paint you a picture of a false boogeyman coming to get your freedom unless you allow the big bad government to play bodyguard for you?
How much proof do you need of their treachery to get a clue?
How much innocent blood needs to be shed for you to face the truth?
What lies will you tell yourself when they come for our freedom?
It is a sad day when scenes like the one that has taken place in Tennessee are considered righteous while ignoring the voice of a people who understand the true consequences for their country and very lives.
Freedom and Democracy are not for you to define for others. The cries for respect of National Sovereignty should be respected by all sides not just Russia. But if memory serves the people of Crimea asked Russia to defend them. Russia is there legitimately invited by a people endangered by a coup that has been proven to have been set up by the west. The US government and it’s Nato allies serving the interests of t he Central Banks and Corporations. Helping them loot an pillage the resources of the Ukraine at the expense of it’s people. You want to see the future of Ukraine then take a good look at Greece and you will understand what you are defending.
How William Hague Deceived the House of Commons on Ukraine
In a statement on 4 March 2014, Foreign Minister William Hague deceived the House of Commons about the legitimacy of the new regime in Ukraine.
He led the House to believe that the Ukrainian parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, had removed President Yanukovich from power on 22 February in accordance with the Ukrainian constitution.
“It is wrong to question the legitimacy of the new authorities”, he said.
It is simply untrue that the Rada followed the procedure laid down in the Ukrainian constitution to impeach and remove a president from power.
Article 108 of the constitution specifies four circumstances in which a president may cease to exercise power before the end of his term. Those are:
- inability to exercise his or her powers for reasons of health;
- removal from office by the procedure of impeachment;
The procedure for removal from office by impeachment is laid down in Article 111. It is not unlike that required for the impeachment and removal from power of a US president, which could take months.
Thus, Article 111 obliges the Rada to establish a special investigatory commission to formulate charges against the president, seek evidence to justify the charges and come to conclusions about the president’s guilt for the Rada to consider. To find the president guilty, at least two-thirds of Rada members must assent.
Prior to a final vote to remove the president from power, the procedure requires
- the Constitutional Court of Ukraine to review the case and certify that the constitutional procedure of investigation and consideration has been followed, and
- the Supreme Court of Ukraine to certify that the acts of which the President is accused are worthy of impeachment.
To remove the president from power, at least three-quarters of Rada members must assent.
Big Lies Drown Out Truth
by Stephen Lendman
Propaganda war on Russia rages. It exceeds the worst of Cold War bluster.
Scurrilous reporting is featured. Media scoundrels scream Russian aggression. Putin is outrageously compared to Hitler.
Hypocrisy is shameless. It’s shocking. It’s disgusting. Western-supported neo-Nazi putschists usurped power in Kiev.
It was the most brazen post-WW II coup. Legitimate Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was blamed for their crimes. They continue. They’re ignored.
Headlines call them democrats. Incendiary conditions exist. Open conflict is threatened.
Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh is unapologetically fascist. “I’ll be fighting Jews and Russians til I die,” he said.
He has presidential aspirations. He’ll run to head Ukraine in so-called May elections. They’ll be farcical when held. They’ll be illegitimate.
Russia issued an international arrest warrant for Yarosh. He publicly supports terrorism. According to Russia’s Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin:
“The investigators believe (he) has been publicly calling upon anti-Russian forces for extreme actions and terror on the territory of Russia.”
Doku Umarov is Russia’s most wanted terrorist. Yarosh urged him to “activate his fight (and) take a unique opportunity to win” against Russia.
He issued an ultimatum. He demands access to Ukraine’s military arsenals. Itar Tass said he “doesn’t rule out more decisive action on Ukraine if the government doesn’t comply with (his) demands.”
He and likeminded fascists run Ukraine. Washington supports them. So do EU partners. Media scoundrels ignore their lawlessness. Ukraine’s crisis escalates.
Dubious reports circulate. On March 7, Time magazine headlined “Ukrainian Base in Crimea Resists Russian Raid.”
It claimed Russian troops attempt to seize the base failed. It cited an anonymous Kiev coup d’etat defense ministry spokesman saying:
“The base is now in full control of the Ukrainian armed forces.”
He claimed two Russian military trucks rammed the base’s gate. Several dozen Russian troops were allegedly involved, he said.
“Russian forces…surround(ed) all of the Ukrainian bases in Crimea and barricade(d) their servicemen inside,” said Time.
“By slamming through the gates with a military vehicle, the Russian forces initiated an escalation of the ongoing conflict over Crimea between Russia and Ukraine that could easily have led to bloodshed and a full-scale war.”
This Is An Actual Billboard In Crimea
These images reveal a lot about the Russian occupation of Crimea and the March 16 referendum that will decide if the Ukrainian peninsula formally secedes to Russia. It is all but a foregone conclusion.
The above poster reads, “On 16 March, we are choosing,” on top and the placement of “or” between a Nazi-themed Crimea and a Russia-themed Crimea on the bottom. The sentiment echoes Kremlin propaganda about Ukraine’s new government.
America world knows today engineered
People around the world are reeling in shock as America is calling for sanctions against Russia for its military buildup in Crimea in response to the overthrow of the Ukrainian government by ultra-nationalist extremist elements aided by Western intelligence agencies.
Not a single word has come from America, no leader, no “talking head” from the press, nothing but silence at what is clearly a demonstration of unimaginably immense hypocrisy.
Recent events in Ukraine have exposed something of the “dark underbelly” of America. When President Obama speaks of the Russian military presence in Crimea as being a violation of international law, the entire world is aghast.
A nation that, at one time, referred to itself as “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” though still admired in many ways is also greatly feared and mistrusted over much of the world.
America hasn’t entirely killed its credibility; however, to those of us who live in America and have fought in her wars, especially those of us who remember John F. Kennedy, the country we live in today is “unrecognizable.”
There is another question “out there.” Are Americans simply monsters, are they stupid, robotic, propagandized or something else? Why is America “unrecognizable?”
After the Vietnam War, where a majority of not only civilians but military as well turned against the war in Vietnam, a “new age” of freedom and justice seemed to be taking root. That was not to be.
What is startling is how the government and President Nixon, at the time considered one of the “dark characters” of history, responded. The American government declared war on the American people, bringing to bear weapons developed during the darkest years of the Cold War.
Science had targeted the human mind, exceeding any of the rudimentary “brainwashing” efforts of many countries. Memories, reality, perceptions, all became a playground for “war science.”
These “programs” left America a nation “unrecognizable” to those who have retained an unstained recollection of the “real” past. As we will learn, even memories can’t be trusted. A day never passes when the people of the world ask: “Why would the American people allow these things their government does?” We will attempt to address that issue here.
‘West lie machine, incompetent and bankrupt’
West lie machine, incompetent and bankrupt
The US spooks are on the defensive over escalating geopolitical tensions between America and Russia over Ukraine. This weekend, the leaders of the 6! or so US intelligence agencies are having to explain to their political masters why they are called “intelligence” given that they failed to foresee the Russian security measures that Moscow has deployed in Ukraine’s southern Crimean Peninsula over the past week.
Now Washington is scrambling fighter jets to the Balkans and warships to the Black Sea in a desperate show of purposefulness, having been caught rudely asleep as the self-appointed global police thug.
So much for the $50-billion-a-year American spy industry, including the National Security Agency, which came to prominence this past year with revelations by whistleblower Edward Snowden that the agency…[extracted] zillions of data from computers and phones in every country of the world.
Given the evident surprise in Washington over Russian military moves in the Crimea this past week, the US spook industry has got some serious explaining to do for their extraordinary lapse and atrociously
poor value for tax-payer money.
The fallback claim by US director of intelligence, James Clapper, and other spy bosses, as well as President Obama himself, is that the NSA’s violation of privacy laws has been necessary because it keeps Americans safe from terrorism and other threats.
Now, with Washington spectacularly wrong-footed by Russia in Crimea, that assurance of alleged vigilance looks even more threadbare. How incompetent can American spooks and their multi-billion-dollar activities be?
For some light relief comes the news that the Pentagon has now taken to “reading the body language” of Russian President Vladimir Putin for guidance.
