Four Bood RED Moons … ? ? ?

Zionist


apocalypse


coming?

apocalypse-now

Will a Zionist apocalypse erupt during the coming two years?

Some Zionists seem to think so. They are predicting that an unusual series of lunar eclipses or “blood moons” expected in 2014 and 2015 augurs war and disaster on an epic scale.

One Zionist website warns: “It cannot be regarded as coincidence that all four blood moons of 2014/15 occur on religious festivals of Israel, together with two eclipses of the sun also on important days in 2015…According to NASA – Four ‘blood-red’ TOTAL lunar eclipses WILL fall again on Passover and Sukkoth in 2014 and 2015… the same back-to-back occurrences at the time of 1492, 1948 and 1967” (sic).

Meaning? “The events may involve war in the Middle East and a financial crisis around the world that will affect the land of Israel or the Jewish elite in New York City.”

These blood-moonbat Zionists think that 2014 or 2015 will go down in history alongside 1492 (the year that Jews, along with Muslims, were expelled from Spain), 1948 (the creation of the Zionist entity) and 1967 (the Zionist invasion and occupation of Jerusalem).

Citing a satanic Rothschild-financed hoax, the so-called Scofield Bible, these Zionists hope that 2014 or 2015 will bring a major Middle East war that will enable the Zionists to finish the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, demolish the al-Aqsa mosque, build a Zionist temple on the ruins of the mosque, and consecrate it with blood sacrifices – beginning with the slaughter of a pink heifer.

Are the Zionists insane? Obviously. But unfortunately, the ongoing influence of insanity on world affairs cannot be discounted.

If the Zionists believe blood moons bring war and financial crisis, they may just decide to plunge the world into war and financial crisis as a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy.

They would do well to consider the words of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves…”

The Zionists have been sowing seeds of hate. They will reap a harvest of calamity. When they do, they should not blame the stars.

Even the scriptural sources of the “blood moon” prophecies should give them pause.

If the Zionists considered their own scriptures more carefully, they would realize that they have it  backward. The prophecies they cite equate blood moons with disaster for the Jewish people. That means that the creation of the Zionist entity in 1948, and the murderous theft of Jerusalem in 1967, were disasters for the Jewish people – just like the expulsion from Spain in 1492. Therefore, we might expect 2014 and 2015 to bring an epic collapse of Zionism: The harvest of the toxic seeds sowed in 1948 and 1967.

But we do not need a Scofield Bible to forecast the collapse of Zionism. The worldwide anti-Zionist movement is growing every day – even in the “homelands” of the Zionist settler-colonial movement.

In Europe, more and more public figures are speaking out with increasing boldness against Zionism. The EU government has banned all 28 member states from cooperating with any Zionist entity that operates in the territories stolen in 1967 – including the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.

A popular backlash against Zionism is exploding across Europe. Hundreds of thousands of Europeans have been flashing the “quenelle,” a satirical Zio-Nazi salute invented by France’s greatest contemporary comedian, Dieudonné. The authorities in France, who are under the thumb of the powerful French Zionist community, are panicking. They have prosecuted Dieudonné for speaking out against Zionism, and recently raided his house under a transparently bogus pretext. But every attempt to squash the “quenelle” just shows how powerful (and humorless) the Zionists really are, and convinces even more people to join the movement.

In the USA, the American Studies Association has launched the first academic boycott of Israel – a landmark breakthrough for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. Heavy-handed attempts to quash BDS, such as the New York State Legislature’s near-unanimous passage of a bill outlawing academic boycotts, are backfiring. Like the French government’s persecution of Dieudonné, and its brutal treatment of quenelle-flashing protesters at a huge demonstration in Paris, such actions simply underline that the French and American governments are under near-total Zionist control…which only increases the angry populist backlash.

This has nothing to do with the moon. The Zionists are facing catastrophe because they can no longer suppress the truth. In the age of the Internet, and the alternative media it spawned, simply buying up the mainstream media and the politicians no longer suffices.

So perhaps the Zionists really will be facing an apocalypse in the “blood moon” years of 2014 and 2015. But that does not necessarily mean world war or financial collapse.

The word “apocalypse” is popularly understood to mean “global catastrophe or calamity.” But its first meaning is “disclosure” or “unveiling” – the disclosure or unveiling of the truth.

It is not any Iranian nuclear bomb, or Palestinian population bomb, that should concern the Zionists. Their real enemy is the slow-motion truth bomb that is gradually exploding across the world.

Zionists vaguely sense this. They realize, on some level, that their racist colonial project is doomed. That is why they suffer from what Gilad Atzmon calls “pre-traumatic stress disorder.”

The unveiling of truth, and ensuing demand for justice, is the real “apocalyptic threat” that will soon bring about the annihilation of the Zionist entity.

NATURE HAS BEEN

MADE ILLEGAL


The sabotage


of all



life


THE FUTURE DEPENDS

UPON

BELIEVERS,


BUT EVERYTHING

WE BELIEVE


IS FALSE


By John Kaminski

As I see it, the only truly valid instruction we receive in this life comes from our parents when we are little. They warn us against burning ourselves, to avoid being hit by a passing car, and most especially, not to lie, or people won’t believe what we say. Which is why it always puzzled me that all the information we receive from society throughout our lives seeks to break down these initial instructions, these common sense safeguards given to us by the two people who love us most, our parents.

Now, our nightmare government claims to love us more than mom and dad, as they yank children into hospital gulags insisting untested medicines filled with toxic ingredients are more sensible than traditional remedies proven effective by generations of common practice. A government that seeks to protect us from ourselves is no government at all, but only our jailer, and all too often our killer.

We are constantly exhorted to challenge our parents’ view of life — smoke this, drink that — because our parents are ‘oppressing’ us, denying us our right to be free. This is the chief tenet of a nefarious group of Jewish psychiatrists called the Frankfurt School, who have convinced the world that the nuclear family is evil and must be destroyed.

Somehow the lure of the illicit and the forbidden captivates us when we are growing up. Glittering, profit-oriented society teaches us that it’s fun to court danger and go against the rules, all in search of that elusive holy grail we still can’t reliably identify that has been named freedom. It is primarily this philosophy that has turned the world into a giant terrifying prison of fear, this quest for an abstract freedom that we can never satisfactorily define.

Much to our parents’ dismay, society makes us believe we are in control of our lives long before we actually are. So we burn ourselves with forbidden booze and drugs. Some of us never kick these habits and become either permanent medical patients or sociopathic deceivers. If we aren’t hit by a car, we drive drunk and crash, or get away with more serious crimes, all against the advice — if they were healthy — of our parents. And boy, do we lie. We stay out late, do things we don’t want to admit, and some of us survive to teach these nasty habits to our children, in what is now known in psychiatric circles as the cycle of abuse, some forms of it nastier and more injurious than others.

Though many of us adopt formal moral codes as adults, those without strong parents abandon them as children. Especially kids from broken homes see that their parents, hard workers though they may be, can’t compete with the illicit dangers and stimulating rewards of the street, the flashy trends of society. It’s more fun to be bad. Bad guys have more fun and often get away with being bad. Girls have always gravitated to bad guys, and still do.

Today we have a situation where the people in charge of society are all criminals, participating in a universal scam and lying about as much of it as they can get away with. This is the way they are brought up, and this is what we all must deal with as soon as possible if we are to avoid a world divided into prisoners and guards, with the emotion known as compassion gone extinct.

Even though it can save the world, compassion is no longer fashionable because there is no financial profit in it. Or so society teaches us. Society, and all the word implies, regardless of the competitive excuse it uses, teaches us to kill each other, most of it unnecessarily in this so-called advanced age.

The danger of disbelief

Reincarnation is the oldest religion. Though it has been purged from most Western religions in favor of some imaginary la-la-land most people are blackmailed into accepting, which really is a mental prison created by those who control sociological beliefs.

Our refusal to accept the terms of life on this planet is as old as life itself.

All species exhibit it. It is known as the survival instinct. It is also called denial of death. The two things are not the same. To survive is instinctual. To deny death is insane.

Prey strive just as hard as predators to keep their lives. That predators succeed is nature’s way of balancing and ebb and flow of life itself. Somehow, nature has made it all even out. The result of this unfathomable balance of life and death has been a planet of incomprehensible beauty and justice. No one species ever gets too far ahead. When it does, the systems of nature balance things out.

Overkill of one species ultimately reduces the population of its predators, because eventually there is not enough for them to eat. Overpopulation of one species leads to a profusion of predators, to the point that a species will eventually start consuming itself because the group mind knows that things have gone out of balance, and its population must be reduced to maintain the level of health necessary for the Earth itself to maintain its survival.

Among the subcategories of this phenomenon, two actions stand out as particularly relevant to our own present predicament.

The first is that when in a situation of overpopulation relative to the available environment, some small cohort of a species will develop into saboteurs who will work to reduce the population in order to preserve species assets for its own self-selected subgroup.

The second is that when an overabundance of one species threatens the welfare of all species in the world. Then, all other species will turn against the one overabundant species to work for its demise. As the bees are dying, our future is darkening. And now you know why.

You can poke holes in the dogma of all religions, but what you can’t deny is that generally all universal religions attempt to uphold and venerate the beauty and the spirit of life, even though there may be no verifiable proof of the reason to do this, only the comfort that it brings to those who choose to believe the traditions.

Those who choose not to believe it wind up trying to tear it down, and generally commit crimes in trying to do so simply because they have no basis upon which to believe that life as it exists and has been provided for them is sufficient, or fair, or enjoyable; they want more, and will do anything to get it. They want to scratch an itch that can’t be relieved. These people usually become saboteurs, spies, and scam artists, without regard for other living things, all because they haven’t gotten what they think they should get out of life, even though it is readily available by following rules that exist.

Bad parents are the fastest way to find yourself among the nonbelievers. It’s tough to speculate how much of the world falls in this group. I think all parents love their children; it’s just that life and where they’ve been don’t allow them to give their kids what they need, and the downward cycle continues, all because their parents aren’t around to show them they are loved, and really because the parents don’t love themselves. Because they are afraid. Because they don’t believe.

Will the robots obey?

The Jews want to kill all natural life on this planet and replace it with inventions they’ve made themselves. They think they can improve on life, except that all the evidence from artificial life they have created thus far shows they can only create new and convoluted ways of death, with GMO grass that kills cows in the third generation and other biotech monstrosities that render the animals who eat them infertile. This is how they plan on killing everything that lives and populating the Earth with robots who they think will obey them. Just like so many unruly children.

Happy people accept what a lot of people call God’s plan. You follow certain rules, raise healthy children, and live happy lives, and don’t ask for any more than life allows. Some people, unhappy people, don’t think that’s enough. It has been a mental disease since the dawn of time that people want to live forever. They don’t accept life’s terms. First it was alchemy. Now it’s the singularity. Download our consciousness into indestructible robot bodies. You know what will happen if that ever succeeds. The mechanical being the Jews create will kill everything on Earth, and anything anywhere else they can get their insane hands on.

Though many millions of people convincingly claim they have lived lives prior to this one, nobody we know of has ever lived forever. At least they haven’t made themselves known. Nietzsche said the Bible said that God hated nature. And it’s true when you read it that way. God gave humans, or his favorite tribe of them, the right to do anything they wanted with the Earth, and what they chose to do was abuse and destroy it. Never a thought that the Earth sustained their lives. Never an inkling that the frequency of the Earth was identical to the frequency of humans, and that one couldn’t exist without the other.

However, uncountable millions of other believers in admittedly flawed and plagiarized dogma have made decent lives for themselves, raised exemplary children, and passed on surrounded by those who loved them who revered the wonderful impression the life of these beloved beings had made on those around them.

Devoted to their family and friends and their community and their nation, people from every country have utilized the religious traditions they were given to live decent lives. It was the betrayal of those principles that caused all the wars, not the practice of them. The savaging of religious systems by revolutionaries for the inevitable hypocrisy of its leaders has been patently unfair. It isn’t the systems that have debilitated human civilizations, but the men who subverted them for their own selfish purposes.

Unnatural vs. natural

It’s true. The happiest people are the believers. Their world is ordered. Their questions are answered. Their children have pink cheeks, they are free of disease and their parents are faithful to each other.

But how can you be a believer when everything you’re told is a lie? The Pope is OK with homos. So are first grade teachers. The land of the free and home of the brave is blowing up countries left and right and lying about it. The food you see advertised on TV is killing you — all of it.

Mad scientists are seeking to remake the world. Foremost among their plans is the elimination of most of the world’s population of humans. They’ve already practiced on most of the rest of the other species, and they’re all just about gone. This whole syndrome is all based on the mistaken notion that humans can actually improve the condition of life on the planet, when they don’t even understand how the process works to begin with.

The leaders of our country, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, laugh about killing innocent people. They laugh as they kill their own soldiers, their own ambassadors. Cops shoot people’s pets and murder harmless homeless people. Doctors knowingly prescribe poison medicines and conduct unnecessary surgeries.

The only people who believe in the United States are zombies. Unfortunately, they’re in power.

The most unnatural thing ever promoted in a widespread way is teaching homosexuality to first graders. They don’t even know what it means, but in a few short years, when their sexuality begins to awaken, they will follow the first impulse that presents itself, which will be an older predator fixated on the abused child that they themselves were. As a consequence they will destroy any chance some innocent child victim ever had to raise a normal family. The Bilderberger delusionals call this population control. I call it the destruction of the human race.

The riddle of the ages

Most of the things we have been taught have been false. Especially about American history. And also about religion. As a consequence it’s very difficult to believe in anything. When you look outside for some guidance, all you find are clever strategies cloaked in hypocrisy, gurus concealing perverted psychopathologies, and eager followers racing with certainty toward their own destruction (and taking lots of other people with them).

Yet we’re not getting out of this fix . . . we’re not getting out of this life  . . . without a belief in something. Amid all the staged turmoil of the world, we must choose to believe in something. The grand deception played upon everyone is that this truth can be found in the dogma that someone gives you. This is a grievous error. It can only be found inside yourself.

Everywhere we turn we see our government declaring natural things illegal, and ordering us to take unnatural medicines, eat unnatural food and participate in unnatural practices. When the government makes it the law of the land that we must eat poison food and take poison medicine, it is long past time to overthrow that government.

Believe that your have the right to defend yourself against twisted bureaucrats who don’t care about your welfare. It doesn’t matter what the law says or what the judge tells you to do. The doctors lie to make money. Saving your life is secondary to them.

Believe that you have the right to defend your life under any circumstances, no matter what anybody else tells you or how many people, or experts, or authority figures tells you to do unnatural things, like kill innocent people to make money for rich psychopaths, or pretend someone of the same sex is actually your spouse.

This is a debate that all comes down to one question: do you want to screw someone or do you want to love someone?

Anybody who tells you to do unnatural things like this needs to be terminated as soon as possible, and more importantly, you need to ignore their advice. Libido does not a working relationship make. Only mutual respect does.

This is just one more unnatural trick the Jews use to destabilize society, so they can take control of everyone and force them to consume their sick agenda of twisted slavery.

To put it another way, the Jews are the quintessence of unnatural practices, and we need to restore the natural world, live natural lives, and pretty much ignore everything the Jews have ever said. But first we need to eliminate them and their sick practices from human society. It’s the only way we will survive as recognizable humans.

America, minus



the mask



First and foremost,



a nation of killers



By John Kaminski

pseudoskylax@gmail.com

http://therebel.org/news/kaminski/



America is a nation of killers. It always has been, from the first Pilgrims who set foot in Massachusetts and later murdered the very people who had saved them from starvation.

The entire American population is trapped in a self-delusion that they are heroes, fighting an endless string of evil enemies. But in fact their targeted enemies have always been innocent people, usually minding their own business, put in harm’s way by their own valuable possessions, which Americans inevitably covet, and will kill anyone to get.

You could say this sly, self-justifying homicidal behavior is really a human problem, endemic to every nation or ethnic group. More fashionable lately is to blame it all on the clever Jews, who have controlled America and most other countries in a surreptitious way for a very long time. But lately, at least for most of the last century, when the blood of innocents is seeping into ravaged landscapes charred by bombs, it has always been Americans doing the bulk of the killing. This is something — from Sand Creek to Dresden to My Lai to Fallujah — that makes them very proud.

You could say that they learned it all from the British, who learned it all from the Romans, but you’d be wrong. All the great empires of history were the greatest killers, and to think otherwise is to be naive. The most prosperous and forward looking countries have always been the best killers, and America, whose budget for wars and weapons exceeds the combined total of all the other countries of the world, is the most prodigious killer country of all time.

Something to be proud of, isn’t it? What is worth examining, however, is the false rhetoric justifying these murderous actions that is always couched in terms of the heroic protection of peace. Like the famous Vietnam maxim: we had to destroy the village in order to save it.

Like some parasitic termite inexorably chomping on the beams of an elegant mansion, this philosophy is turning the world into a giant heap of irreparable rubble, which is exactly what Halliburton and all the other vampire corporations want — destroying the treasures of the past so knock-off substandard replacement structures can be built everywhere the U.S. government decides to destroy.

A simple analysis of the news bites of the day will show that the terror card is a false canard. The FBI fabricates all these crimes to show everyone there is a terrorist around every corner, but there aren’t any — there are only undereducated patsies induced to shoot their mouths off about misinformation they have misinterpreted and get themselves arrested for plots that never could have actually happened. Think Shoe Bomber, or Crotch Bomber, and millions in profits for Michael Chertoff and his airport cancer machines that catch no criminals, only cause disease.

In the glib propaganda of the present day, most of us forget that this is the self-serving lingo the conquerors. In World War I the targeted Germans became Huns eating babies in order to motivate American hayseeds to kill them. More recently, the U.S. president insisted that the Libyan dictator was killing his own people. So he then invaded that country and killed that leader. But then when the original lie is revealed that the Libyan dictator was actually treating his own people very generously, it was too late to reverse the American atrocity that had been committed. The so-called dictator has been raped and murdered in the streets of his own country, and 40,000 of his loyal countrymen have died along with him, all because of the American lie that was told so Israel’s gang of neocon thieves could steal both his oil and his water, not to mention his gold. Though the lie is revealed, the outcome may not be changed. This is a portrait of American justice around the world, the legacy that this obnoxious nation of killers continues to unleash upon the world.

Very few people are willing to admit that this has been the ethos upon which American prosperity was based.

Of course, it’s not really American justice. Those who have acquired any acumen whatsoever during the course of their lives about world politics knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is only one force in the whole world that determines everything, and that of course is money, and that all the money in the world has been controlled by Jewish billionaires ever since the time of Rothschild when Nathan Rothschild essentially stole the entire British treasury in 1815 when Wellington finally defeated Napoleon. Ever since that time, world politics has been dominated by very rich Jews controlling both your nation and your mind, but they’ve been so clever about it, the vast majority of the world’s population has had no clue that this has even occurred.

Things we dare not tell our children

American history as well as British history are very much Jewish history, a history written in blood and funded by drugs, sex and blackmail. American history and British history, very much inseparable, are not about the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence; they are much more about the genocide of native peoples all over the world, and their enslavement — the whole world has been enslaved by the Western business model. Who can say whether the Jews actually invented it in their takeover of all the countries of the world, or whether they just expropriated the model crafted by the Romans and fine-tuned by the Venetians?

All we know now is that American history and British history are cover stories for the Jewish takeover of reality that have resulted in this prison mentality that the very rich have the means and methods to tell everyone else what to do, and that message is to rape and plunder your way to the top, and pay no mind to the millions of people you have to crush into the mud of time to get the job done. All the fine words of theologians and philosophers are only meant to cover up the unspeakable realities of Hiroshima and Fukushima that aim to pare down the population to a manageable level on a plantation run by fellows with whips in their hands.

Deceived by their own reality and endlessly distracted by their own obligations, when parents send their children to schools, they have suppressed the knowledge that they are really sending their kids off to learn to be obedient killers.

With all the intelligent people IN the world observing all the tragic events and calculated frauds OF the world, I remain mystified why more people haven’t figured out that Jews are responsible for all the horrible things that make our lives so tenuous and dangerous every single day.

The most horrible thing of all is that maybe we all wanted to this to happen, to have a ruthless leader tell us what to do so we wouldn’t have to think for ourselves that one day we are all going to die, and everything we build will mean nothing to us when we’re gone. Very likely this is the real reason for all the pointless killing for all the temporal profits and meaningless prizes.

How stupid are the American people not to notice that their so-called government is doing the same thing in Ukraine that it is doing in Syria and has done in dozens of countries, from Serbia to Yemen to Pakistan to Iraq. Every bit of it is couched in terms that allege America is promoting peace while conducting war.

Jewish-controlled America pays desperate mercenary criminals from around the world to destabilize independent governments. In Ukraine, Victoria Nuland, chief neocon agent for destabilization, had admitted the U.S. has spent $5 billion to generate regime change in Kiev. An Egyptian writer, Ashraf Ezzat, has pointed out that the same flyers used in Cairo to enrage the participants in that revolution was used in Kiev to enflame the paid revolutionaries in Ukraine.

They don’t even keep their treason a secret anymore. For more than two decades now, the U.S. has fomented chaos in Iraq by sending in billions of dollars on pallets to be paid to everyone who wants to keep fighting (which is virtually the entire population of the Third World), and especially to the American mercenaries for that company that keeps changing its name but once was called Blackwater, now showing up as the private armies of Ukrainian neocon oligarchs.

How proud must Americans be that the U.S. continues to be the war making giant of the whole world, expropriating the position that we insisted was occupied by Russia when it was the USSR. Russia was never this blatant or this aggressive in infiltrating and bribing the citizens of multiple nations into betraying their own countries. All it takes nowadays is a fistful of practically worthless dollars, and the U.S. sucks another prostituted nation into the corrupt orbit of the Jewish New World Order.

However, in today’s herniated reality, American pride soon gives way to pain when the soldiers doing the Jews’ business around the world come and find there are no jobs except prison guards available to them, and that both their rights and their guns have been taken away from them. When they see that, and realize that the people they killed were really just like them, suicide doesn’t seem like such a bad option.

No profit in peace

We all need to protect ourselves from the police. They are the criminals. They don’t protect people. They only protect bankers. Nowadays, they are best known as killing people for fun, and shooting the pets of innocent people.

The lawyers will not defend you and the judges will not listen to your pleas about honesty, morality or justice. The justice system has become just another cash cow, allowing people on the inside to get rich off the luckless patsies on the outside. What they said would happen is now true — the world has been divided into a society of prisoners and guards, and God help you if you can’t a job as a guard.

Does anybody out there still believe that Afghanistan was a worthwhile project? Worth six thousand American lives, not to mention hundreds of thousand natives? All to protect the poppy crop? How much do you really know? How much do you want to know? Do you want to know how to keep yourself alive?

Do you understand the need to overthrow this government? Do you realize there is no one in the federal government who cares about your continuing existence?

When nations advocate torture

As America’s infrastructure continues to crumble, successive corrupt U.S administrations have squandered billions to foment revolutions and spread the tyranny of the World Bank around the world.

The high minded rhetoric of JFK in the 1960s which encouraged public service as a way to make the world a better place has given way to the obscene trivialities of George W. Bush calling the Constitution “just a piece of paper” and Barack Obama removing the  Constitutional protections of habeas corpus and trial by jury, totalitarian moves that have been applauded by a media controlled and drug addled populace no longer able to distinguish spin from logic and nobility from perversion.

I don’t remember exactly when it became publicly acceptable to torture political prisoners and send them to foreign jails to be mutilated, but it was well after we knew that the so-called wars from which these prisoners were snatched were phony deals from the beginning, long after Zbigniew Brzezinski had created al-Qaeda as a means of forcing the Russians out of Afghanistan.

Bad at math, the American people could not put 2 plus 2 together and realize that every single hapless person ever imprisoned at Guantanamo was absolutely innocent because the United States had created the enemy it was pretending to fight.

No, the American people have feigned ignorance but actually approved all these crimes against hapless countries with no air forces and innocent people who have committed no crimes, only gotten in the way of New World Order drug smuggling and parking their camels in the way of oil and gas pipelines.

A few of us try to stand up and point out that this is all wrong, but our voices are lost in a tidal wave of irrelevant trivia that is more important to most people than their own lives, than their own well being. And as new planes are launched and new bombs dropped, our voices are drowned out by the ugly sounds of people gasping for breath and dying, because of our refusal to acknowledge that we ourselves have failed to protest the lies that are killing them.

Because of our profound ignorance, our families will soon suffer the same fate of those innocent people who have died because we did not have the courage to confront the lies we were told, and are still being told.

A nation of killers living on lies is what America has turned out to be. If you call yourself an American, you must accept that as the truth, and act accordingly in some way to try to redeem yourself from the thoughtless scumbag that history will judge you as having been. Or at least you will have to do that if you care about anything at all.

Real truth… Whole truth… Nothing but Truth!

The Anti-Empire Report #126


By William Blum – Published March 7th, 2014

Ukraine

When it gets complicated and confusing, when you’re overwhelmed with too much information, changing daily; too many explanations, some contradictory … try putting it into some kind of context by stepping back and looking at the larger, long-term picture.

The United States strives for world domination, hegemony wherever possible, their main occupation for over a century, it’s what they do for a living. The United States, NATO and the European Union form The Holy Triumvirate. The Holy Triumvirate has subsidiaries, chiefly The International Monetary Fund, World Bank, World Trade Organization, International Criminal Court … all help to keep in line those governments lacking the Holy Triumvirate Seal Of Approval: the IMF, WB, and WTO impose market fundamentalism, while foreign leaders who act too independent are threatened with being handed over to the ICC for heavy punishment, as the United States imposes sanctions on governments and their leaders as only the King of Sanctions can, lacking any sense of hypocrisy or irony.

And who threatens United States domination? Who can challenge The Holy Triumvirate’s hegemony? Only Russia and China, if they were as imperialistic as the Western powers. (No, the Soviet Union wasn’t imperialistic; that was self-defense; Eastern Europe was a highway twice used by the West to invade; tens of millions of Russians killed or wounded.)

Since the end of the Cold War the United States has been surrounding Russia, building one base after another, ceaselessly looking for new ones, including in Ukraine; one missile site after another, with Moscow in range; NATO has grabbed one former Soviet Republic after another. The White House, and the unquestioning American mainstream media, have assured us that such operations have nothing to do with Russia. And Russia has been told the same, much to Moscow’s continuous skepticism. “Look,” said Russian president Vladimir Putin about NATO some years ago, “is this is a military organization? Yes, it’s military. … Is it moving towards our border? It’s moving towards our border. Why?”

The Holy Triumvirate would love to rip Ukraine from the Moscow bosom, evict the Russian Black Sea Fleet, and establish a US military and/or NATO presence on Russia’s border. (In case you were wondering what prompted the Russian military action.) Kiev’s membership in the EU would then not be far off; after which the country could embrace the joys of neo-conservatism, receiving the benefits of the standard privatization-deregulation-austerity package and join Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Spain as an impoverished orphan of the family; but no price is too great to pay to for being part of glorious Europe and the West!

The Ukrainian insurgents and their Western-power supporters didn’t care who their Ukrainian allies were in carrying out their coup against President Viktor Yanukovych last month … thugs who set policemen on fire head to toe … all manner of extreme right-wingers, including Chechnyan Islamic militants … a deputy of the ultra-right Svoboda Party, part of the new government, who threatens to rebuild Ukraine’s nukes in three to six months. … the snipers firing on the protestors who apparently were not what they appeared to be – A bugged phone conversation between Urmas Paet, the Estonian foreign minister, and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, reveals Paet saying: “There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition.” … neo-Nazi protestors in Kiev who have openly denounced Jews, hoisting a banner honoring Stepan Bandera, the infamous Ukrainian nationalist who collaborated with the German Nazis during World War II and whose militias participated in atrocities against Jews and Poles.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported on February 24 that Ukrainian Rabbi Moshe Reuven Azman advised “Kiev’s Jews to leave the city and even the country.” Edward Dolinsky, head of an umbrella organization of Ukrainian Jews, described the situation for Ukrainian Jews as “dire” and requested Israel’s help.

All in all a questionable gang of allies for a dubious cause; reminiscent of the Kosovo Liberation Army thugs Washington put into power for an earlier regime change, and has kept in power since 1999.

The now-famous recorded phone conversation between top US State Department official Victoria Nuland and the US ambassador to the Ukraine, wherein they discuss which Ukrainians would be to Washington’s liking in a new government, and which not, is an example of this regime-change mentality. Nuland’s choice, Arseniy Yatseniuk, emerged as interim prime minister.

The National Endowment for Democracy, an agency created by the Reagan administration in 1983 to promote political action and psychological warfare against states not in love with US foreign policy, is Washington’s foremost non-military tool for effecting regime change. The NED website lists 65 projects that it has supported financially in recent years in Ukraine. The descriptions NED gives to the projects don’t reveal the fact that generally their programs impart the basic philosophy that working people and other citizens are best served under a system of free enterprise, class cooperation, collective bargaining, minimal government intervention in the economy, and opposition to socialism in any shape or form. A free-market economy is equated with democracy, reform, and growth; and the merits of foreign investment in their economy are emphasized.

The idea was that the NED would do somewhat overtly what the CIA had been doing covertly for decades, and thus, hopefully, eliminate the stigma associated with CIA covert activities. Allen Weinstein, who helped draft the legislation establishing NED, declared in 1991: “A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA.”

NED, receives virtually all its financing from the US government ($5 billion in total since 1991), but it likes to refer to itself as an NGO (Non-governmental organization) because this helps to maintain a certain credibility abroad that an official US government agency might not have. But NGO is the wrong category. NED is a GO. Its long-time intervention in Ukraine is as supra-legal as the Russian military deployment there. Journalist Robert Parry has observed:

For NED and American neocons, Yanukovych’s electoral legitimacy lasted only as long as he accepted European demands for new “trade agreements” and stern economic “reforms” required by the International Monetary Fund. When Yanukovych was negotiating those pacts, he won praise, but when he judged the price too high for Ukraine and opted for a more generous deal from Russia, he immediately became a target for “regime change.”

Thus, we have to ask, as Mr. Putin asked – “Why?” Why has NED been funding 65 projects in one foreign country? Why were Washington officials grooming a replacement for President Yanukovych, legally and democratically elected in 2010, who, in the face of protests, moved elections up so he could have been voted out of office – not thrown out by a mob? Yanukovych made repeated important concessions, including amnesty for those arrested and offering, on January 25, to make two of his adversaries prime minister and deputy prime minister; all to no avail; key elements of the protestors, and those behind them, wanted their putsch.

Carl Gershman, president of NED, wrote last September that “Ukraine is the biggest prize”. 6The man knows whereof he speaks. He has presided over NED since its beginning, overseeing the Rose Revolution in Georgia (2003), the Orange Revolution in Ukraine (2004), the Cedar Revolution in Lebanon (2005), the Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan (2005), the Green Revolution in Iran (2009), and now Ukraine once again. It’s as if the Cold War never ended.

The current unbridled animosity of the American media toward Putin also reflects an old practice. The United States is so accustomed to world leaders holding their tongue and not voicing criticism of Washington’s policies appropriate to the criminality of those policies, that when a Vladimir Putin comes along and expresses even a relatively mild condemnation he is labeled Public Enemy Number One and his words are accordingly ridiculed or ignored.

On March 2 US Secretary of State John Kerry condemned Russia’s “incredible act of aggression” in Ukraine (Crimea) and threatened economic sanctions. “You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pre-text.”

Iraq was in the 21st century. Senator John Kerry voted for it. Hypocrisy of this magnitude has to be respected.

POSTSCRIPT: Ukraine’s interim prime minister announced March 7 that he has invited the NATO Council to hold a meeting in Kiev over the recent developments in the country. “I invited the North Atlantic Council to visit Kiev and hold a meeting there,” Arseny Yatsenyuk said during a visit to Brussels, where he met with NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and EU officials. “We believe that it will strengthen our cooperation.”

Washington’s response, or lack of it, has confirmed the authenticity of a YouTube clip of a leaked telephone conversation between US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt that emerged February 6. In the call, posted by an anonymous Russian source, Nuland and Pyatt discuss installing a new, pro-US government that will incorporate the fascistic opposition which had been leading street protests against Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Even though Washington’s campaign for regime-change had been coordinated with the European Union, in the phone conversation with Pyatt, Nuland attacks the EU for being insufficiently aggressive, saying at one point, “Fuck the EU.” The same source has provided us with the text of a subsequent conversation between the EU and the US.

A Question re: Syria

There have been numerous news stories about Syrian government bombing of its civilian areas, with reports of many dead, and photos and videos of heavily damaged buildings. The source of the stories I’ve come across, when it’s mentioned at all, is almost always some element of the “rebels”; i.e., those opposing the Syrian government.

In all these stories – Have you ever seen a photo or a video of a plane dropping bombs? Or of the bombs in the air? I’m not saying that the bombings have not taken place. I’m just wondering why there is no graphic evidence of them.

Dialogue with readers

Last month’s report evoked an unusually large number of critical responses, concerning two basic issues:

1) My questioning the widely-held belief that if John F. Kennedy had not been assassinated he would have ended US military involvement in Vietnam. Those who wrote to me are convinced that in a second term as president, without the need to worry about re-election, the genuine liberal and man of peace residing inside JFK would have been free to blossom, and he would quickly have put an end to a war that he supposedly abhorred.

I had written in the report: “It appears that we’ll never know with any kind of certainty what would have happened if JFK had not been assassinated, but I still go by his Cold War record in concluding that US foreign policy would have continued along its imperial, anti-communist path.”

As I read letter after letter challenging this assertion, the thought occurred to me: This is just what we heard for four years concerning Barack Obama – In his second term the genuine liberal and man of peace would emerge; the Nobel Peace Laureate would show why he deserved the prize. Well, do I need to go into the awful details of the man’s second term, from drone assassinations to relentless persecution of whistleblowers who question his foreign policy?

In the land where happiness is guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence

President Obama and many other political and media figures have once again made discussion about the minimum wage a heated subject. Time for me to repeat something I wrote in 2007:

“Think raising the minimum wage is a good idea?”

“Think again.”

That was the message of a full-page advertisement that appeared in major newspapers in January. It was accompanied by statements of approval from the usual eminent suspects:

“The reason I object to the minimum wage is I think it destroys jobs, and I think the evidence on that, in my judgment, is overwhelming.” Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve Chairman

“The high rate of unemployment among teenagers, and especially black teenagers, is both a scandal and a serious source of social unrest. Yet it is largely a result of minimum wage laws.” Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist

Well, if raising the minimum wage can produce such negative consequences, then surely it is clear what we as an enlightened and humane people must do. We must lower the minimum wage. And thus enjoy less unemployment, less social unrest. Indeed, if we lower the minimum wage to zero, particularly for poor blacks … think of it! … No unemployment at all! Hardly any social unrest! In fact – dare I say it? – What if we did away with wages altogether?

“The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy: that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.” – John Kenneth Galbraith
