French Election: All Power to the Banks!

A ghost of the past was the real winner of the French presidential election. Emmanuel Macron won only because a majority felt they had to vote against the ghost of “fascism” allegedly embodied by his opponent, Marine Le Pen.  Whether out of panic or out of the need to feel respectable, the French voted two to one in favor of a man whose program most of them either ignored or disliked.  Now they are stuck with him for five years.

If people had voted on the issues, the majority would never have elected a man representing the trans-Atlantic elite totally committed to “globalization”, using whatever is left of the power of national governments to weaken them still further, turning over decision-making to “the markets” – that is, to international capital, managed by the major banks and financial institutions, notably those located in the United States, such as Goldman-Sachs.

The significance of this election is so widely misrepresented that clarification requires a fairly thorough explanation, not only of the Macron project, but also of what the (impossible) election of Marine Le Pen would have meant.

From a Two Party to a Single Party System

Despite the multiparty nature of French elections, for the past generation France has been essentially ruled by a two-party system, with government power alternating between the Socialist Party, roughly the equivalent of the U.S. Democratic Party, and a party inherited from the Gaullist tradition which has gone through various name changes before recently settling on calling itself Les Républicains (LR),in obvious imitation of the United States.  For decades, there has been nothing “socialist” about the Socialist Party and nothing Gaullist about The Republicans.  In reality, both have adopted neoliberal economic policies, or more precisely, they have followed European Union directives requiring member states to adopt neoliberal economic policies. Especially since the adoption of the common currency, the euro, a little over fifteen years ago, those economic policies have become tangibly harmful to France, hastening its deindustrialization, the ruin of its farmers and the growing indebtedness of the State to private banks.

This has had inevitable political repercussions. The simplest reaction has been widespread reaction against both parties for continuing to pursue the same unpopular policies. The most thoughtful reaction has been to start realizing that it is the European Union itself that imposes this unpopular economic conformism. …

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Godfather of al Qaeda and Taliban, Dead at 89

I come not to praise Zbigniew Brzezinski, but to bury him beneath a damning fact omitted from his New York Times and Washington Post obituaries: He bears enormous responsibility for the rise of the Taliban, al Qaeda and ISIS…

In 1979, serving as national security advisor, Brzezinski convinced President Jimmy Carter to approve a plan to provide covert CIA aid to opponents of the pro-Soviet government in Afghanistan.

Carter signed the secret and deeply fateful directive on July 3 of that year. In launching the effort, “we knowingly increased the probability” of a Soviet invasion, said Brzezinski in a 1998 interview.

When that invasion occurred months later, Brzezinski told Carter, “We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam War.”

To accomplish that goal, the Carter and Reagan administrations, along with Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, funded, organized, transported, armed and trained Salafist extremists to fight the Red Army in a holy war on behalf of Islam. Among those who joined the cause were future al Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Khalid Sheikh Mohammad…

In 1998, Brzezinski was asked if had any regrets about launching the program. He replied, “Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it?”

By some estimates, one million Afghan civilians were killed in the conflict.

The same journalist asked Brzezinski if he regretted arming and training future terrorists. He countered with his own questions: “What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Muslims or the liberation of central Europe and the end of the Cold War?”

Brzezinski’s Afghan strategy is a case study in the unintended consequences of U.S. interventionism, one that exposes the cold conceit of those who contentedly sacrifice the lives of innocents to the pursuit of grand geopolitical objectives…

Media Matters Chat Hacked, Run Like Military Psyop

A chat from just before the november election, apparently.  Seemingly referring to a televised trump-hillary debate the night before.  I’ve hyperlinked and bolded some especially interesting passages.  “She” apparently either refers to hillary or (!!!) her stand-in.

NOTE: this guy claims he cooked the whole thing up as a hoax, but if he really wanted to “retract” it, why didn’t he post the retraction to the same page where the chat was originally posted?       Clearly it must be because he doesn’t have the password.   Archive.org says the site has never been used.  Looking at his other articles, he appears to be a disinfo specialist with an anti-trump slant.   http://www.realtruenews.org/single-post/2016/09/27/Inside-Correct-the-Record-Post-Debate-PLOT  You don’t have to be a trumpeteer to recognize a professional traitor when you see one.  Either military or mercenary.  This only adds weight to the article, IMHO.

Also: alex jones said on thursday that his trump sources told him that obama had in fact given clinton campaign operatives access to NSA tools.  More on tuesday, supposedly.

[6:00] romney v obama numbers

ekim [6:01 AM] but those don’t mean anything

efink [6:01 AM] it means they’re enthusiastic. organized. if they can swarm a poll whats to stop them swarming a voting booth?

efink [6:11 AM] alright. we need to move beyond the disruption scripts and down-voting. we need to start hurting people and that’s what this is about. This is about winning because we’ll never get a chance at this again. everything is justified. David?

brock [6:11 AM] dramatic.

[6:13] fuck–okay. so the Trump team is an emergent order. thirty million little chan and reddit assholes that bump around and then congeal to vote in a poll or push a meme or make a hashtag trend or whatever. This is new. It isn’t like fighting a centrally organized campaign.

[6:13] It’s more like fighting a disease.

[6:14] So what we need to do is break the pattern. The usual means isn’t working. Trump’s too charismatic. Morale is too high. This is an army of chaos folks.

[6:22] I need all that in a packet by tomorrow afternoon with lexical analysis, proof of compromise. I want clips of memes. I want to up-vote patterns. All this has to be inside the US too. We can’t use externals.

Twitter Suspends WND For Linking Donna Brazile to Seth Rich Case

Social media giant admits bombshell tweet led to suspension

Twitter suspended WND News for 12 hours for revealing that DNC insider Donna Brazile reportedly panicked over the private investigation into the death of staffer Seth Rich.

The social media giant even admitted WND’s tweet “Bombshell: Donna Brazile warned off private eye on Seth Rich murder” was the reason for the suspension.

“A WND company official confirmed the tweet was deleted per the company’s instructions,” reported WND’s Bob Unruh. “The news story was about a private detective’s revelation that former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile was the high-ranking DNC representative who allegedly called police and the Rich family and demanded to know why a private investigator was ‘snooping’ into the case.”

And that’s definitely news: why would Brazile care whether a private detective was looking into the case, as the source claimed? …
