Occupy Wall Street and Webster Tarpley ... We're All LaRouch-ites Now!

From The Daily Bell, Thursday, October 27, 2011 – by Staff Report
Adbusters Caves to Mass Pressure, Calls for Saturday Day of Action for Wall Street Sales ... Mobilize Now to Demand No Cuts in Social Safety Net ... Student Loan Amnesty ... Foreclosure Freeze ... Nationalization of Fed to Create 30 Million New Productive Jobs at Union Wages ... – Summary of Webster G. Tarpley interview on INN World Report Radio 

Dominant Social Theme: The concept of a Bizarro universe is directly taken from the Superman universe, in addition to verbal references to Superman ... Jerry: Yeah, like Bizarro Superman – Superman's exact opposite, who lives in the backwards Bizarro world. Up is down; down is up. He says "Hello" when he leaves, "Goodbye" when he arrives. Elaine: Shouldn't he say "bad bye"? Isn't that the opposite of goodbye? Jerry: No, it's still goodbye. Elaine: Does he live underwater? Jerry: No. Elaine: Is he black? Jerry: Look, just forget the whole thing. All right? – Dialogue from "Bizarro" Seinfeld episode.

Free-Market Analysis: The above dialogue seems appropriate as we begin this analysis, which will point out that Lyndon LaRouche and fellow traveler (we use the term ironically) Webster G. Tarpley are fast becoming among the most important thinkers in the alternative blogosphere and maybe eventually in the mainstream as well.

LaRouche, for instance, seems to have been correct on much of his analysis of the West's collapsing fiat-money system. In the past, he has been regarded as something of a crank ... but now everyone from Ellen Brown to Congressional representatives are adopting his idea of a nationalized Federal Reserve – and many of his other FDR-oriented solutions. Here's something from LaRouche's own Executive Intelligence Review website on central banking, circa 1993:
Nationalize the Federal Reserve ... The Presidential campaign organization of Democrat Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. announced on Feb. 25, 1992 the release of a draft "Federal Reserve Nationalization Act" to recreate the U.S. central bank on the model of the First National Bank of Alexander Hamilton. The act would nationalize the Federal Reserve System, creating new National Bank of the United States, under the Treasury Department, returning to the U.S. government the right to issue legal tender (currency) granted in the Constitution. 

On this website, we've often discussed nationalized banking with Ellen Brown who's an attractive spokesperson for the concept; but we wonder what her supporters would say if they knew LaRouche had been there first. Here's a prediction: LaRouche, Tarpley and other FDR-supporters will soon be seen as offering solutions not only to the problems of the "private" Federal Reserve but also to a myriad of other problems.
This will be a triumph for LaRouche himself in his declining years, as he has long been a figure of fun for the mainstream media. Yes, as America continues to spiral down into the pit of an incipient full-blown depression, LaRouche may well get the last laugh. You can see an interview we did with him here: Lyndon LaRouche Explains the Collapsing Western Economy and How the World Really Works

We've noted agreement with LaRouche's analyses, but that doesn't mean we agree when it comes to SOLUTIONS. Like Webster Tarpley (who once tried to run on a LaRouche ticket in New York, according to Wikipedia, and was in younger years a Fullbright Scholar), LaRouche's solutions seem to us "bizarro." 
We hear these solutions enunciated yet again in an interview on INN World Report Radio with Webster Tarpley. The man's erudition is immense and like LaRouche, he can talk extemporaneously about the most complex events. But his solutions are directly in line with what FDR proposed, solutions that in our view retarded recovery from the Great Depression and at one point directly threatened the entire free-market system on which the US is (at least putatively) based.

Tarpley will have none of that sort of analysis. Government, Tarpley says, is something that will always be with society. We might as well get used to it and use it as the tool it can and must be. This is perhaps a kind of dominant social theme, though whether Mr. Tarpley is promoting such a meme knowingly is a question we shall leave to others to discern. 

There is no doubt OUR point of view is that such a solution as Tarpley presents is one preferred by the very Anglosphere elites that Tarpley and LaRouche claim they oppose. Regardless of motivation, it seems wrongheaded from our point of view. SMALL government is preferable to large government.
Many great, modern episodes of history seem to have begun with small, disparate units ... from the Greek city-states, to Rome's Seven Hills, to Italy's city-states and America's 13 separate colonies. In such instances, people could migrate when government became too oppressive to others regions where they could speak the same language, and this this led to governments that competed with each other to attract citizens and were apt not to be overly repressive.

America's "greatness" in our view was the residual effect of its original culture of freedom and its 13 separate colonies that fostered competitiveness and prosperity. America's exceptionalism ENDED when the North conquered the South during the Civil War. For Tarpley, this is where America's greatness BEGAN.

For Tarpley, America's greatness lies in its post-World War II accomplishments. This was when America provided the highest "standard of living" for its citizens. For us, this was the result of World War II itself, which virtually leveled every other major country but America. Tarpley attributes post-war prosperity to an FDR inspired public-private partnership.

Tarpley and LaRouche tend the shrines of Hamilton, Lincoln and FDR. They are pro-central banking, pro-price fixing and pro-the Regulatory State. They want large government, the larger the better. Only the largest governments can protect citizens and provide the massive public works that countries could not otherwise erect. But IS bigger better? Here is something that occurred during FDR's watch from a 'Net article entitled "Evil Price Cutting":

A more dramatic jailing was that of 49-year-old Jacob Maged of Jersey City, New Jersey. Maged had been pressing pants for 22 years, and his low prices and quality work had kept him competitive with larger tailor shops in the better parts of town. The NRA Cleaners and Dyers Code demanded that he charge 40 cents to press a suit. Maged, despite repeated warnings, insisted on charging his customers only 35 cents. "You can't tell me how to run my business," he insisted.

Not only was Maged thrown in jail, he was also slapped with a $100 fine [Ed note: a lot of money in the 1930s]. "We think that this is the only way to enforce the NRA," said Abraham Traube, a director of the NRA code authority for the Cleaners and Dyers Board of Trade. "If we did the same thing in New York City we would soon get the whole industry in line." Many editorialists, however, sided with Maged. "It didn't matter," the Washington Post said, "if Maged had to charge less than the bright and shiny tailor shop up the street if he wanted to continue to exist. The law said he couldn't." "For a parallel," the New York Herald Tribune said, "it is necessary to go to the Fascist or Communist states of Europe."

Indeed, FDR's policies, if taken to their logical conclusion, were "fascist" in the sense that they demanded that Leviathan control every part of society for the greater good – and as well, a buy-in from America's largest corporations. For Tarpley, such an approach (ameliorated no doubt by reasonableness) is a necessary antidote to elite Money Power. Government, he says in his interview with INN World Report Radio, can be hostile to the middle classes and the poor, or it can be indifferent or it can be helpful. He wants it to be "helpful."
Tarpley, not surprisingly, is no fan of Austrian economics and makes a point of deliberately labeling those who believe in free-markets as "insane." In fact, almost every point of Misesian thought is to be refuted as crazy "anarchism" (though in fairness to Tarpley, he has written in the past that "gold has a critical role to play in a new international currency system"). He favors Hamilton over Jefferson and declares that America's post-war prosperity was built entirely on the foundations of the New Deal.

He goes farther. In the interview, Tarpley accuses libertarian Congressman Ron Paul of formulating anti-poor policies that will amount to, well ... genocide. He is also emphatic that there needs to be a transaction tax on all financial trades in America (and around the world?), a policy that will surely be as intrusive as FDR's attempt at universal price fixing. We've written about it here: "Washington Post: OWS Is Controlled Opposition, Maybe LaRouchite?" Here's an excerpt: 

The Occupy Wall Street crowd in particular seems determined to impose statist solutions when the free market once served well, at least until the Civil War destroyed the US republic. The Occupy Wall Street movement with its emphasis on public central banks, regulations like Glass-Steagall and an emphasis on public solutions to private problems is headed in the wrong direction, in our humble view. And now the movement is going global. Call it Lyndon LaRouche's revenge?

What Tarpley (and LaRouche) want is a New Deal on steroids. But Tarpley's version of events seems to ignore the founding of the IMF, World Bank, UN and even the BIS – all of which David Rockefeller had a very strong influence on. How can Tarpley damn British elitism on the one hand and endorse their enterprises on the other? His position contains considerable contradictions in our view. (Ed Note: In fairness to Tarpley, he has stated in the past that he would abolish the IMF and World Bank to set up a "new world monetary system based on full employment through the revival of industrial production," but this still does not seem to address the larger contradictions).

And there is this. Human action shows us that every regulation and law is a price fix and every price fix redistributes wealth from those who produce it to those who won't know what to do with it. Tarpley's response would be that the system is so distorted by PREVIOUS laws advantaging the elites that one must pass (similarly distortive) laws that advantage the rest of us. This is a "two wrongs make a right" kind of argument.

Additionally, central banking doesn't work. History shows us even when a mercantilist central bank is bounded by a gold base, those in charge will find a way around it. Once the ability to print is concentrated in a few hands the disaster begins, as no one knows how much money is too much.
Those who operate central banks in such a manner, whether politicians or "banksters," will always print too much money, causing terrible booms and busts and giving rise to Great Recessions like this one, or even depressions (where we're headed). India and China both have "public" central banks and it has made no difference. 

People who believe in free markets want LESS government because government is inevitably manipulated by the richest among us. Only LESS government can guarantee less manipulation. Tarpley, LaRouche and others see it the opposite way. They want MORE government, but they never explain how to avoid an elite takeover. Yet such takeovers in our view are historical and inevitable. More government means MORE elite control, not less.

They also ignore the horrible ramifications of Leviathan. Republican, small-government states rarely if ever are accused of genocide but in the 20th century large, totalitarian governments were among the largest of mass murderers. Government has a monopoly on force, as Lew Rockwell pointed out recently, and given enough time those in high positions of authority will begin to use it.

Despite Tarpley and LaRouche's mainstream marginalization, their ideas shall have increasing resonance as the "American dream" winds down and people call desperately for solutions to salvage the remnants of their lifestyles – or even to put food on the table. Occupy Wall Street's non-leader/leaders are already echoing LaRouche and Tarpley – not just when it comes to analyzing the problem but also the solution. We would suggest humbly this might be just what the Anglosphere power elite actually wants to have happen. Hear that sound? Laughter!

Tarpley speaks admiringly of mercantilism and protectionism. He claims that only a Hamilton dirigiste/authoritarian regime can save the US and the world. Tarpley's solution is more authority at the top. Our hope is that what we call the ongoing Internet Reformation shall counteract these trends with information and education about the way the world really works.

Conclusion: What Tarpley proudly calls populism is in our view another sort of dominant social theme that mis-directs people's energy and makes them agitate for state solutions that ultimately provide only more impoverishment and chaos. Our solution is human action and individual freedom from intrusive and heavy-handed government. To Tarpley such solutions are "insane." To us, LaRouche-ite solutions – despite the brilliance of their backers – seem, well, bizarro ...

Who Was Muammar Qaddafi? Libya’s Wealth Redistribution Project By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya

27 October 2011 — Global Research
Fourth of Four Installments on Libya: Who is Stealing the Wealth?

Introduction by Cynthia McKinney
hillary-libya.jpgOnce again, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya peels away the veneer of legitimacy and deception enveloping the U.S./NATO genocide currently taking place in Libya. In his first article, Nazemroaya makes it clear that there never was any evidence given to the United Nations or the International Criminal Court to warrant or justify United Nations Resolutions 1970 and 1973 or current U.S./NATO operations inside Libya.
In his second article detailing this very sad story, Nazemroaya exposes the relationships between the major Libyan protagonists/NATO collaborators and the U.S. Congress-funded National Endowment for Democracy. Incredibly, when leading Members of Congress publicly proclaimed repeatedly that they did not know who the Libyan ‘rebel’ NATO collaborators were, select so-called rebel leaders were political intimates with stakeholders at the National Endowment for Democracy. Nazemroaya also exposes that, despite its Global War on Terror, the U.S. government actually financed Libyan terrorists and criminals wanted by INTERPOL.
In his third installment, Nazemroaya removes the U.S./NATO fig leaf that attempts to cover the cynical machinations of the pro-Israel Lobby and its objective of balkanizing African and Asian states, especially those whose populations are largely Muslim. Nazemroaya makes the essential point: ‘An attempt to separate the merging point of an Arab and African identity is underway.’ The Voice of America has exposed the psychological aspects of its brutal intervention and hints at the mindset of the U.S./NATO Libyan pawns; several stories suggest that the ‘new’ Libya will turn more toward its Arab identity than its African identity. While Muammar Qaddafi drove home to all Libyans that Libya, as its geography dictates, is an African country, Nazemroaya shows how this fact is not a policy objective shared by the U.S., NATO, Israel, or their Libyan allies.
Finally, in this last of the four-part series, Nazemroaya shows the ultimate perfidy of the U.S./NATO Libyan allies, especially Mahmoud Jibril, in the pre-emptive strike against the Jamahirya Wealth Redistribution Project.
The Libyan people are now fighting the world’s most powerful militaries to save their Jamahirya.
No matter how many times NATO-inspired media lie to their publics, the lies will never become the truth.
Hauntingly, Nazemroaya ends by telling us that the Libyan National Transitional Council has already recognized the Syrian National Council (SNC) as the legitimate government of Syria.
Meanwhile, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, now reputed to be the leader of Al Qaeda and reportedly rewarded with U.S. citizenship after fighting for the C.I.A. in Bosnia, just called for the people of Algeria to oust their President.
President Obama’s policy of flying drones and dropping bombs over Africa, and invading the Continent with US troops, means that any country that resists an AFRICOM base, as Colonel Qaddafi’s wife tells us he did, or expects to exercise its right of self-determination, can expect the kind of treatment we are witnessing now in Libya. We, in the U.S., must resist these policies for ourselves and and on behalf of the Africans who deserve better than this from the United States of America.

WHO WAS MUAMMAR QADDAFI? LIBYA’S WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION PROJECT
by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya
Colonel Muammar Qaddafi symbolizes many things to many different people around the world. Love or hate the Libyan leader, under his rule Libya transformed from one of the poorest countries on the face of the planet into the country with the highest standard of living in Africa. In the words of Professor Henri Habibi:
When Libya was granted its independence by the United Nations on December 24, 1951, it was described as one of the poorest and most backward nations of the world. The population at the time was not more than 1.5 million, was over 90% illiterate, and had no political experience or knowhow. There were no universities, and only a limited number of high schools which had been established seven years before independence. [1]
Qaddafi had many grand plans. He wanted to create a South Atlantic Treaty Organization to protect Africa and Latin America. He advocated for a gold dinar standard as the currency of Muslim countries. Many of his plans were also of a pan-African nature. This included the formation of a United States of Africa.
Qaddafi’s Pan-African Projects
Colonel Qaddafi started the Great Man-Made River, which consisted in a massive project to transform the Sahara Desert and reverse the desertification of Africa. The Great Man-Made River with its irrigation plans was also intended to support the agricultural sector in other parts of Africa. This project was a military target of NATO bombings. Without just cause, NATO’s bombing campaign was intent upon destroying the Great Man-Made River.
Qaddafi also envisioned independent pan-African financial institutions. The Libyan Investment Authority and the Libyan Foreign Bank were important players in setting up these institutions. Qaddafi, through the Libyan Foreign Bank and the Libyan Investment Authority, was instrumental in setting up Africa’s first satellite network, the Regional African Satellite Communication Organization (RASCOM), to reduce African dependence on external powers. [2]
His crowning achievement would have been the creation of the United States of Africa. The supranational entity would have been created through the African Investment Bank, the African Monetary Fund, and finally the African Central Bank. These institutions were all viewed with animosity by the European Union, United States, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and World Bank.
Qaddafi’s Wealth Redistribution Project
Qaddafi had a wealth redistribution project inside Libya. U.S. Congressional sources in a report to the U.S. Congress even acknowledge this. On February 18, 2011 one report states:
In March 2008, [Colonel Qaddafi] announced his intention to dissolve most government administrative bodies and institute a Wealth Distribution Program whereby state oil revenues would be distributed to citizens on a monthly basis for them to administer personally, in cooperation, and via local committees. Citing popular criticism of government performance in a long, wide ranging speech, [he] repeatedly stated that the traditional state would soon be ‘dead’ in Libya and that direct rule by citizens would be accomplished through the distribution of oil revenues. [The military], foreign affairs, security, and oil production arrangements reportedly would remain national government responsibilities, while other bodies would be phased out. In early 2009, Libya’s Basic People’s Congresses considered variations of the proposals, and the General People’s Congress voted to delay implementation. [3]
Qaddafi wanted all the people of Libya to have direct access to the nation’s wealth. He was also aware of the deep rooted corruption that plagued the ranks of the Libyan government. This was one of the reasons why he wanted to apply a model of political anarchy in Libya through progressive steps. He was talking about both these project for a few years.
On the other hand, the Wealth Redistribution Project, along with the establishment of an anarchist political system, was viewed as a very serious threat by the U.S., the E.U., and a group of corrupt Libyan officials. If successful, the reforms could have created political unrest amongst many domestic populations around the world. Internally, many Libyan officials were working to delay the project. This included reaching out to external powers to intervene in Libya to stop Qaddafi and his projects.
Why Mahmoud Jibril Joined the Transitional Council
Amongst the Libyan officials that were heavily opposed to this project and viewed it with horror was Mahmoud Jibril. Jibril was put into place by Saif Al-Islam Qaddafi. Because of strong influence and advice from the U.S. and the E.U., Saif Al-Islam selected Jibril to transform the Libyan economy and impose a wave of neo-liberal economic reforms that would open the Libyan market.
Jibril became the head of two bodies in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, the National Planning Council of Libya and National Economic Development Board of Libya. While the National Economic Development Board was a regular ministry, the National Planning Council would actually put Jibril in a government position above that of the Office of the General-Secretary of the People’s Committee of Libya (which is the equivalent of the post of a prime minister). Jibril actually became one of the forces that opened the doors of privatization and poverty in Libya.
About six months before the conflict erupted in Libya, Mahmoud Jibiril actually met with Bernard-Henri Lévy in Australia to discuss forming the Transitional Council and deposing Colonel Qaddafi. [4] He described Qaddafi’s Wealth Redistribution Project as ‘crazy’ in minutes and documents from the National Economic Development Board of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. [5] Jibril strongly believed that the Libyan masses were not fit to govern themselves and that an elite should always control the fate and wealth of any nation. What Jibril wanted to do is downsize the Libyan government and layoff a large segment of the public sector, but in exchange increase government regulations in Libya. He would also always cite Singapore as the perfect example of a neo-liberal state. While in Singapore, which he regularly visited, it is likely that he also meet with Bernard-Henri Lévy.
When the problems erupted in Benghazi, Mahmoud Jibril immediately went to Cairo, Egypt. He told his colleagues that he would be back in Tripoli soon, but he had no intention of returning. In reality, he went to Cairo to meet the leaders of the Syrian National Council and Lévy. They were all waiting for him inside Cairo to coordinate the events in Libya and Syria. This is one of the reasons that the Transitional Council has recognized the Syrian National Council as the legitimate government of Syria.
Do Not Pity the Dead, Pity the Living!
Muammar Qaddafi is now dead.
He was murdered in his hometown of Sirte.
He stood his ground until the end like he said he would.
The Transitional Council, which vowed to take him to court had him murdered.
He even reminded the men who beat him, anally raped him, mocked him, and finally murdered him that they were not following the laws of Islam about respectful treatment of prisoners. NATO played a central role and oversaw the whole event.
The murder was systematic, because after Qaddafi was murdered his son and several other Libyan leaders were killed too.
Colonel Qaddafi is gone. An old era has ended in Libya and a new chapter begins.
Libya will not become a new paradise like the Transitional Council says. In many cases the living will envy the dead, because of men like Mahmoud Jibril, Ali Tarhouni, and Sliman Bouchuiguir.
Mahmoud Jibril is a mere opportunist. The man had no problems being a government official under the late Qaddafi. He never complained about human rights or a lack of democracy. He was the prime minister of the Transitional Council of Libya until a few days after the savage murder of Colonel Qaddafi. The opposition of Jibril to the late Qaddafi’s Wealth Redistribution Project and his elitist attitude are amongst the reasons he conspired against Qaddafi and helped form the Transitional Council.
Is this ex-regime official, who has always been an open supporter of the Arab dictators in the Persian Gulf, really a representative and champion of the people? How about his colleagues in the Transitional Council who negotiated oil contracts with NATO member states, even before they held any so-called government positions in the Transitional Council?
Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya is a Sociologist and Research Associate of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), Montréal. He specializes on the Middle East and Central Asia. He was on the ground in Libya for over two months and was also a Special Correspondent for Flashpoints, which is an investigative news program carried on numerous stations in the United States and based in Berkeley, California. Nazemroaya has been releasing these articles about Libya in conjunction with aired discussions (now archived) with Cynthia McKinney on Freedom Now, a show aired on Saturdays on KPFK, Los Angeles, California.

Vampire Squids Attack Humans, Resistance Deemed Racist, Humans Issue Demands




The German Bundestag voted 503 to 89 to destroy their currency and their nation by approving a leveraged Bailout of the banks which in Europe like America are owned by Vampire Squids. This law change will allow the banks to suck the life’s blood from everyone through hyperinflation. America long ago legalized funny money. This has allowed Ben Bernanke to create 16.1 trillion dollars out of nothing from 2008 to 2010. Bernanke has not told us but I assume Ben has been cranking out trillions more dollars over the past year. Now Europe can do what Bernanke has been doing which is to hyperinflate our savings, pensions and paychecks away to zero in order to give everything to the banks.

You Must Have Less So Vampire Squids Can Have More

The term Vampire Squid was originated by Tyler Durden over at Zero Hedge. He is Jewish so his criticism of Goldman Sachs cannot be termed racist. The Left in the German parliament voted for the enslavement of Europeans through hyperinflation because to vote against the Vampire Squids was considered racist. Excuse me. How can resistance to the evils of Fractional Reserve Banking and hyperinflarion be considered racism?

America is way ahead of Europe in terms of submitting to the rule of the Vampire Squids. The Americans passed the Patriot Act 10 years ago yesterday. America has already created NORTHCOM which will do to America what Africom is doing to the Africans which is killing them. The Americans proved they were not racist by passing the Military Commissions Act of 2006 to allow the US Army to become a military police to shoot their own citizens.

The Germans are not allowed to participate in the European Thug And Bill Collecting Force known as The European Gendarmerie Force (EUROGENDFOR or EGF) which was created in 2006. The EGF’s job is to go into deadbeat nations, take over their government and collect taxes which are to be sent directly to the Vampire Squid banks.

Look at that EGF and compare it to America’s DHS and NORTHCOM. The EGF has 900 members and can call up 2,300 additional troops. You have to be kidding Mr Sarkozy.
America has several well armed divisions of soldiers with lots of real combat experience in the 12 nations where the American military is currently killing unarmed people. They also have DHS which has 876,000 employees and contractors who have the right to put their hands inside your pants and squeeze your genitals. A third of all DHS employees and contractors have criminal backgrounds prior to being hired. Presumably, the rest will get a chance to commit egregious felonies protecting bankers and other pond scum just as soon as the dollar collapses.

The American media has not covered it but the hospitals in Greece are near collapse. Nurses have trouble buying food for themselves and their families. How long do you think those 3,200 Gendarmerie Bill Collectors will last when they try to take over the government ministries in Athens? Those ministries are already on strike so I suppose the EU will have to send in civil servants with a knowledge of Greek. I studied classical Greek but forgot most of it. And I would refuse under any circumstances to work as a Bill Collector for the Vampire Squids.

I have been hearing rumors of a Greek military coup for over a year. They are reticent to act because the last coup was not well received by history. But the sight of the EGF Thugs might incite the Greek military to action.

I have written several times about an American military coup. Also I have been repeating of late the statement that the DHS might have a lot of thugs but Americans own more than 300 million guns and 10 billion bullets. I do not think the DHS Thug Force will ever successfully squeeze much more money out of Americans. We have no money left to give to the banks.

The Europeans have a few weeks at most to conclude this refinancing fiasco. The banks refuse to take a loss. They want the taxpayers to bail them out. The Italian parliament has broken out in fist fights with one member strangling another. Even funnier was the rumor that the Chinese would rescue the euro sending the US stock market higher. The rumor was denied again. This is the same rumor I heard a month ago and was discounted as soon as the sun rose in China and government officials had a chance to see the latest news from Europe.

Mario Draghi, the incoming President of the European Central Bank, is an Italian who proved he is not a racist by working for Goldman Sachs as a VP. Goldman was the first bank to be identified as a front for the Vampire Squids in their push for World Domination. Draghi replaced Jean Claude Trichet who proved he was not a racist by being born Jewish. His name Trichet in French means cheater which is an appropriate name for a banker. Draghi only got his job because Axel Weber of the Bundesbank refused it. Axel knew the whole operation was doomed to failure and wanted nothing to do with it.

The latest word from Europe is that the Austerity plans from Greece and Italy were insufficient. Perhaps someone could forward my article Austerity Cuts Were Never Even Intended To Work (see below) to the EU and to PM David Cameron.

None of these Bailout plans will work. The European Thug Force is a joke. America could spare 100,000 combat veterans and the CIA has lots of drones the EU can use to kill demonstrators. But that would be counter productive. The Greeks might think we were invading their country which we would be. They would fight back.

When Obamacare was passed, we were told that anyone who opposed it was a racist especially if he said there were death panels in the bill. There were death panels. Now we learn that in the Netherlands the death panels consider poverty as a criterion for killing patients. So even opposition to killing poor people is now deemed racist.

We are up against the wall. We cannot give the Vampire Squids any more money. We would have nothing left to feed our families, to buy them clothes, to pay our utility bills and to make our other payments.

It is love for our families and not an act of racism that compels us Humans to give the Vampire Squids the following ultimatum:

At least 3 million Americans died from starvation in the Great Depression to prove they were not racists. That was sufficient proof for all time that Americans do not hate Vampire Squids. Millions of Americans will not starve to death this time. This is a non-negotiable demand.

The Vampire Squids must return the tens of trillions of dollars they have stolen from us so we can restore our pensions and savings.

The Vampire Squids must surrender their power to lie to us. We no longer believe your lies. We demand you no longer have the right to lie to us over the public air waves. (See second article below.)

We demand the Vampire Squids stop killing our young people in genocidal wars for foreign powers. I will not mention Israel lest anyone confuse speaking the truth with anti-Semitism.

The Vampire Squids will cease and desist from all fractional reserve banking in which Humans pay interest to them on money they created out of nothing.

The Vampire Squids will either conform to these minimum rules of civilized behavior or they will leave.

The Justice Department of the Obama Administration, the self-proclaimed "most transparent administration ever Proposes Letting Government to Respond to Freedom of Information Requests Denying Existence of the Documents.
A longtime internal policy that allowed Justice Department officials to deny the existence of sensitive information could become the law of the land -- in effect a license to lie -- if a newly proposed rule becomes federal regulation in the coming weeks.

The proposed rule directs federal law enforcement agencies, after personnel have determined that documents are too delicate to be released, to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests "as if the excluded records did not exist."

Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, says the move appears to be in direct conflict with the administration's promise to be more open.

"Despite all the talk of transparency, I can't think of what's less transparent than saying a document does not exist, when in fact, it does," Sekulow told Fox News.

Earlier this year, in a case involving the Islamic Council of Southern California brought against the FBI after the plaintiffs learned about the existence of documents denied by the FBI, a federal judge in California expressed great concern about the agency using the internal policy not only in response to the FOIA but to mislead the court.

"The government, cannot, under any circumstance, affirmatively mislead the court. … The court simply cannot perform its constitutional function if the government does not tell the truth," the judge wrote in a stinging rebuke.

A final version of the proposal could be issued by the end of 2011. If approved, the new rule would officially become a federal regulation with the force of law.
Pure Insanity

This proposed law is pure insanity. Wrong accused persons might go to prison or guilty persons purposely protected based on this law.

All that is required is for some government official (possibly protecting himself or his department) to think information is "too sensitive".

The U.S. should be ashamed to even consider such a law.

You exported WHAT? Secret MI6 documents warn about al-Qaeda-linked Libyan rebels


Abdel Hakim Belhaj

By JOSEPH FITSANAKIS | intelNews.org |

A secret intelligence report, found in the British ambassador’s abandoned residence in Tripoli, warns that some of Libya’s most active anti-Gaddafi rebels have direct links with al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups. 

The 58-page document, authored by MI6, Britain’s external intelligence agency, includes complete profiles of a dozen senior members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) based in Britain. It is widely believed that, in 2007, LIFG merged with al-Qaeda; but at least two of its members, Sami al-Saadi and Abdul Hakim Belhaj, currently hold leading positions in Libya’s National Transitional Council —the group that rules the country following the Muammar Gaddafi’s demise. Belhaj, also known as Abdullah al-Sadiq, revealed in September this year that in 2004 he was snatched by a CIA team in Malaysia and secretly transported to Thailand, where he says he was “directly tortured by CIA agents”. The CIA then renditioned him to Libya, where he says he was systematically tortured until his release from prison, in 2010. 

The documents discovered in the British ambassador’s Tripoli residence reveal that MI6 helped the CIA target several LFIG members after 2003; they also reveal that thee British intelligence agency  concluded that the kidnapping and torture of Belhaj and others was both tactically and strategically counterproductive. The report, which is marked “UK/Libya eyes only – Secret”, mentions that the abduction of senior LFIG members allowed even more extremist members to rise to the top of the group, and galvanized its fighters in Libya, Algeria, Iraq, and elsewhere. The new leadership shifted LFIG’s ideology “towards a more pan-Islamic agenda inspired by [al-Qaida]”. British newspaper The Guardian, which acquired the secret MI6 documents, contacted the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. But the paper was told by a spokesman that “it is the government’s longstanding policy not to comment on intelligence matters”.

Wartime Contracting Commission Classifies Findings for Next 20 Years


From Antiwar,  October 25, 2011

by John Glaser

Although the Commission on Wartime Contracting was created to expose waste and abuse, their records are sealed until 2031


The Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan has decided to not reveal its full findings and materials to the public for another two decades, despite its stated purposes of investigating and exposing government waste.
The Commission has been at work for three years, revealing that up to $60 billion in US war funds were lost due to waste, fraud, and abuse. One report concluded that “criminal behavior and blatant corruption” were directly responsible for much of the waste in the expensive “reconstruction”projects in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2002. It also found that one in every six contracting and grant dollars spent in Iraq and Afghanistan has been wasted.
But the Commission now says it won’t allow its full records to be opened to the public at the National Archives until 2031, because, according to one official, some of the documents contain “sensitive information.” Evidence of government theft, profligacy, criminality, and waste is indeed sensitive information. That revealing these things was the purpose of the Commission seems lost on those deciding to hide important information from Americans.
Throughout United States history, that information which has been withheld from the public has primarily been withheld to prevent voters from having the chance to make informed decisions about their political leaders. The Obama administration came in promising unprecedented transparency in government, but this is yet another example of keeping the workings of government secret so as to insulate Washington bureaucrats from accountability.

Gaddafi and the list of things to do


The man is dead they all say - long live the legend. Our lying eyes have seen the footage and even the online pundits ‘concede’ the point. I briefly watched the first video and closed the browser. Whatever was taped I didn’t want to watch any more for the sake of my own soul.

What spastic, cold-turkey junkie prick took the initial video I’ll never know. The quality of the video was the same crap we have seen disseminated time and time again to spread the lies of the so called Arab Spring. Remember also that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi has made more comebacks than Sinatra. Lazarus would be jealous – he only got to come back from the dead once.

I seem to remember that they stopped the crystal clear footage after the Green Square footage was shown to be a set in Doha, Qatar. Other scenes were of a crowd in India. Once ‘Mission Accomplished ™’was declared the hired guns of the western media pissed off back home. If they magically produce some clearer stuff I will remember the fake footage produced after Israhell’s murders got outed in their rampage on the Mavi Marmara.

Enough of the forensics – suffice to say that I don’t believe one single fucking word or image we get forced down our throats here in the liberated ‘West’.

They said he was a brutal dictator. Maybe he was. The Americans were seemingly happy to ship some of their torture-for-hire jobs his way. As a wee side note Assad of Syria would pick up some of that work for the US of I also. That’s how they can prove he was such a bad guy – he was doing some of their dirty work.

All the little favours called in to cement our allies in the ‘War Of Terror’. Like getting made in the mafia movies – enough said without discussing the real kosher nostra. Remember Saddam had lots of really bad ass weapons of mass destruction once upon a time. We know this because Rumsfield sold them to him. Ditching said weapons didn’t work out so well for him either.

What did this tyrant ever do for his people? Free Health Service, free University tuition even if you have to go abroad to get it, grants for anyone to farm the land, a wedding gift of thousands of dollars for newly weds and a bonus for each child born. Food and petrol cost mere cents or pennies if you prefer and 50% subsidies on new cars etc, etc – what a bastard!!

He built a massive water network to distribute water from a huge underground aquifer to make the desert fertile – it was to be the 8th wonder of the modern world.

I didn’t know until yesterday (thanks AP) that he also financed the first African telecom satellite – for Africans. No more bender-over fees to the big western networks for African countries.

He wanted to set up a gold backed African currency that would free Africa from the modern debt slavery of the IMF and the rest of the Rothschild controlled vampires. He was only going to sell his high grade oil in the currency of the new African Dinar… what a complete bastard!

Look around you and think - how many people would sell their mothers or their children for that kind of regime right now? How many of the growing tent cities and modern Hoovervilles – if you even know of their existence – could be removed with such a tyrant? Do you see a link…any link?


On a serious note when was the last time an elected representative in your corner of the world actually made your life easier in a fundamental of life… when? We live in ‘democracies’ because the PTB learned that the sheep are quieter in such work camps and when they are distracted by such theatre.

In the current times X factor, XX Idol (for XX - add country of origin) and celebrity gossip substitute for valuable public discourse. Politics and economics are boring… quick Britney is on the other channel… twitter just said that Yo’ mama is really an alien… check out the abs on……..

I remember when free people lived in Republics. Democracies are frightening places – go read Plato. The read monsters certainly did.

Bullshit and sarcasm aside - the more I heard about the man the more I understood why he had to go and 50,000 Libyan civilians had to die with him – so that the civilians would be safe… safe to be enslaved like we are.

Of course he was portrayed as mad. From the mindset of the pimps and whores in positions of perceived power he was. When you have dial-a-Thai-ladyboy on speed dial the idea of improving the lot of your clan/tribe/country is ludicrous. More coke with that your highness?

WE KILLED HIM. Each and every one of us. What did we do to stop it? Sweet Fuck All. We marched like good sheep to stop Iraq and that worked out alright didn’t it? Only a million dead – give or take a few hundred thousand. Not one march to halt the rape and decimation of Africa’s richest nation after the ‘West’ had previously extended the hand of peace. We did this because we did nothing to stop it and the current carpet bagging of the remnants.


Picture found here.

The vile monsters like Billiary Clinton (deliberate spelling) are there because of us. They, like Obama, Sarkozy and that bloated buffoon (prick is reserved for Blair) Cameron live in our ‘sphere of influence’ – where we live for the stupid.

We can camp out and stand and shout. That’s one approach. We can do lots of things to gum up the works. It matters not a jot if we aren’t doing anything except jerk off at a keyboard. The banksters own us lock, stock and barrel – look up the meaning of that some time – hint it’s about guns and the guns are pointed at us.

We can piss and moan that the good leaders get killed - Ghandi, Kennedy, ML King, Malcom X etc because of the money power of the Rothschild and their khazar, rabbi minions that run the show for them. There have been many good leaders that came and died because we have not been ready for the message of what they face and followed through. They knew and they tried anyway.

Moammar Gaddafi may lie in an unmarked grave or may be resting in a villa somewhere in a sympathetic country. It makes not one jot of a difference. The guilt is ours and we can only remove that guilty by making sure the real guilty parties answer for their crimes. Add that to the list of things to do when we get off our arses.

Pepe Escobar: NATO is the global Robocop

From RTAmerica 26 Oct 2011:
According to some reports NATO dropped approximately 40 thousand bombs in the pasted seven months. This played a big part in capture and death of Gaddafi. Many believe showing the lifeless body of Gaddafi was tasteless and the media has ignored the real issues. Who's to gain from the fall of Gaddafi? Pepe Escobar, correspondent for the Asia Times, gives us his take on the media coverage and much more.
