Lies and Deceptions on the Left: The Politics of Self Destruction

Over the past year, what appeared as hopeful signs, that Left governments were emerging as powerful alternatives to right-wing pro-US regimes, is turning into a historic rout, which will relegate them to the dustbin of history for many years to come. 

The rise and rapid decay of left-wing governments in France, Greece and Brazil is not the result of a military coup, nor is it due to the machinations of the CIA.  The debacle of left governments is a result of deliberate political decisions, which break decisively with the progressive programs, promises and commitments that political leaders had made to the great mass of working and middle class voters who elected them.

 Increasingly, the electorate views the leftist rulers as traitors, who betrayed their supporters at the beck and call of their most egregious class enemies:  the bankers, the capitalists and the neo-liberal ideologues.

Left Governments Commit Suicide

The self-destruction of the Left is an unanticipated victory for the most retrograde neo-liberal political forces.  These forces have sought to destroy the welfare system, impose their rule via non-elected officials, widen and deepen inequalities, undermine labor rights and privatize and denationalize the most lucrative sectors of the economy.

Three cases of Left regime betrayal serve to highlight this process: The French Socialist regime of President Francois Hollande governing in the second leading power in Europe (2012-2015);  Syriza, the left regime in Greece elected on January 25, 2015, portrayed as a sterling proponent of an alternative policy to ‘fiscal austerity’; and The Workers Party of Brazil, governing in the biggest Latin American country (2003-2015) and a leading member of the BRICS. …

The american left outdid them all.  They were handed the keys to the castle on a silver platter with 9/11.   All they had to do was study.  Seriously.   Just f*cking think about it.   They have shown themselves to be part of the problem, loyal subjects of a decaying empire, good germans etc.   Not a serious peace movement.   I used to call myself a leftist, now it’s an embarrassment.    At least Alex Jones has the courage to point out the emperor’s nakedness.   It could be argued that he’s more of a peace activist than Chomsky ever was.

Black box memory card missing from crash site of Germanwings jetliner

For some reason we have yet to fully understand, jetliners keep disappearing or falling out of the sky with disturbing regularity. Air travel is amazingly safe, of course. Statistically, it produces far fewer injuries and deaths than vaccine shots which injure so many children that the United States Congress was forced to set up a special “vaccine court” just to handle all the injury claims and billions of dollars in compensation payouts.

But the circumstances under which jetliners keep disappearing smack of conspiracy and cover-ups. Flight MH370, for example, has still never been located. In July of last year, I was the first independent media journalists to suggest the plane had been hijacked. Mainstream media outlets like CNN ridiculed the theory, but just this month CNN began rolling out the exact same explanation, now claiming the jetliner was, indeed, hijacked. (Funny how CNN’s narratives completely flip-flop over time, isn’t it?)  (also see: http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/?s=mh370 )

Now with the Germanwings jetliner incident, we have the New York Times “pulling a CNN,” you might say. According to this NYT story, the memory card of one of the airplane’s two black boxes is missing, and the story claims it must have been “destroyed by the impact.”

“Investigators have so far been unable to retrieve data from one black box, and the other was badly damaged and its memory card was missing,” reports the New York Times.

If you read the logic of that sentence, it seems to state that no data was recovered from either black box, right?

But then in the exact same story, the NYT also reports, “Remi Jouty, director of France’s Bureau of Investigation and Analysis, confirmed that audio of voices had been recovered from the black box in the crash of the Germanwings plane in the French Alps.”

So, wait: there WAS voice recording data recovered from one of the black boxes? Confusing things even further, another paragraph in the same story says:

At the crash site, a senior official working on the investigation said, workers found the casing of the plane’s other black box, the flight data recorder, but the memory card containing data on the plane’s altitude, speed, location and condition was not inside, apparently having been thrown loose or destroyed by the impact.

So what we really have here is a story about two black boxes: one which either has voice data on it or doesn’t have voice data on it, and the other black box which we are supposed to believe was located but the memory card it protects was missing because it was destroyed even though it was surrounded by a black box that’s almost impervious to destruction. ….

Neocon Legacy: The Destruction of the United States

Not only have they trashed the constitution, they’ve even managed to wreck their precious empire.   By their own standards they are abject failures and worse, traitors, war criminals and mass murderers.  As the empire dies, they must not be allowed to stand in the way of our last chance to  restore the republic.   The restoration starts with the truth about 9/11 and who the real terrorists are.

US Lobbying Fails as Allies Flock to China-Led Bank

Ever since its initial proposal by China as an alternative to the IMF and the World Bank, both of which are dominated by the United States, the proposed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has been a target of heavy lobbying by the US, which has been warning allies and client states it would be strongly in their best interests not to join.

The US effort is also becoming a colossal failure, as nations across the region, as well as European powers, are flocking to the China-led bank, and seemingly everyone of note on board at this point.

In recent weeks, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, and Australia all joined, over US objections. South Korea was then heavily lobbied by the US, warned to “think twice” about what it did, but has joined as well.

In the end, the AIIB seems set to become an international lender of no small influence, and much more than China even suggested when it first proposed it. The US lobbying seems not only to have failed, but had the opposite effect, and is getting almost everybody united behind the bank.

Ex pharmaceutical rep comes clean, reveals horrors of Western medicine

An ex-pharmaceutical sales rep has come clean after fifteen years of being in the drug pushing business. In her powerful book, Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher, Gwen Olsen explains why she left her lucrative career selling drugs for some of the biggest names in the business – Johnson and Johnson, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Abbott Laboratories. Now she passionately advocates against the pharmaceutical industry, their unethical practices, and the hundreds of thousands of lives they lead to the grave. Gwen’s eyes were opened through a gradual course of tragic events.

“It was an awakening process, a spiritual and consciousness process where I started observing what was happening, what some of the drugs were doing, the misinformation, the disinformation. I was being encouraged to minimize side effects when I talked to doctors. I started to realize that these patients were literally being tortured by the drugs,” states ex pharmaceutical rep Gwen Olsen. “There is no such thing as a safe drug,” she reiterates.

Her book unveils her experience selling pharmaceuticals and the dirty secrets the industry doesn’t want anyone to know. Olsen explains that when drugs hit the market, no one knows even 50 percent of the side effects associated with the drug. Doctors are convinced of the drug’s effectiveness and their patients literally become test subjects or lab rats for the pharmaceutical companies. Olsen even confesses, “We were being trained to misinform people.” …

Secret History: The U.S. Supported and Inspired the Nazis

While Americans rightly condemn the Nazis as monstrous people, we don’t know that America played both sides … both fighting andsupporting the Nazis.

Americans also aren’t aware that the Nazis were – in part – inspired by anti-Semites in America.

Backing Nazis

Large American banks – and George W. Bush’s grandfather – financed the Nazis.

American manufacturing companies were big supporters of the Nazis.   here are 6 historical examples …

Eugenical US Medicine Most Expensive and Worst Among Industrialized Nations

The Commonwealth Fund reported last year:

The United States health care system is the most expensive in the world, but this report and prior editions consistently show the U.S. underperforms relative to other countries on most dimensions of performance. Among the 11 nations studied in this report—Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States—the U.S. ranks last, as it did in the 2010, 2007, 2006, and 2004 editions of Mirror, Mirror. Most troubling, the U.S. fails to achieve better health outcomes than the other countries, and as shown in the earlier editions, the U.S. is last or near last on dimensions of access, efficiency, and equity. In this edition of Mirror, Mirror, the United Kingdom ranks first, followed closely by Switzerland

While UK residents averaged $3,405 per year on healthcare costs (the second-lowest, trailing only New Zealand), Americans paid $8,508 per year. And yet Commonwealth ranked the UK as number 1 for healthcare, and the U.S. dead last … 11th out of 11 industrialized nations. …

They just need to cut off a few million more foreskins and poison another generation of kids with psych drugs and aluminum-laced vaccines and baby formula, then the survivors won’t care.

This is planned.  You don’t achieve this level of flagrant abuse and systematic looting by accident.  They don’t call it rockefeller medicine for nothing.

Russia Builds Miles of Nuke Bunkers While US Does Nothing

As Russians build gigantic underground bunkers, spanning 400 square miles, the elite are planning their escape from America by purchasing airstrips, farms and underground shelters in record numbers.

As preparations for nuclear war intensify, the public is being told it’s not a danger anymore. Get this emergency broadcast out to everyone you know before the time for action runs out.

RAND Corp Plans for Federal Infiltration of Local Police

Establishing security is the sine qua non of stability operations, since it is a prerequisite for reconstruction and development. Security requires a mix of military and police forces to deal with a range of threats from insurgents to criminal organizations. This research examines the creation of a high-end police force, which the authors call a Stability Police Force (SPF). The study considers what size force is necessary, how responsive it needs to be, where in the government it might be located, what capabilities it should have, how it could be staffed, and its cost. This monograph also considers several options for locating this force within the U.S. government, including the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Secret Service, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) in the Department of State, and the U.S. Army’s Military Police. The authors conclude that an SPF containing 6,000 people — created in the U.S. Marshals Service and staffed by a “hybrid option,” in which SPF members are federal police officers seconded to federal, state, and local police agencies when not deployed — would be the most effective of the options considered. The SPF would be able to deploy in 30 days. The cost for this option would be $637.3 million annually, in FY2007 dollars. …

What do they mean by “reconstruction”? Do they mean reestablishing order after their masters destroy the economy for profit, as they’ve done countless times around the world for decades?

They’re trying to create the mindset and the precedent for the feds to subvert local control of police.
