Campaign promises Obama broke

I think it is important to document that Obama ran as a liberal, that he deliberately misled voters.

Ferguson, Front Line of Anti-Constitution & Class Warfare

Ferguson, Missouri has been turned into a war zone.

The police use inappropriate force, such as tear gas and rubber bullets, to overwhelm and intimidate residents who are legitimately protesting a police murder of a fellow, unarmed resident.

There is also a “keep moving” rule constantly imposed on residents and journalists on the sidewalks of Ferguson. It is not a real law but nevertheless was and still is constantly spouted by the police. This “rule” is anti the First Amendment and now being challenged by the ACLU. Read below the fold...

You Don’t Believe We’re On the Eve of Destruction?

US, Europe, Israel, Saudi Arabia have worked so hard together to bring us to the brink of WWIII.

Ukraine is where the US helped stage a coup that left violent neo-Nazis running a puppet government.

Obama and his administration were FURIOUS over losing their power grab for Black Sea control. They and the Kiev government are willing to have Russian Ukrainians in the east massively slaughtered and to create a humanitarian crisis for the survivors as collective punishment, ethnic cleansing and to provoke a military reaction from Russia.

Obama Hearts JSOC -- the US Answer to Hitler’s SS

Re-post of Excerpts from 5-12-11 blog:

As soon as men know that they can kill without fear of punishment or blame, they kill; or at least they encourage killers with approving smiles. Simone Weil

Collective Punishment & Butchering Babies is Self-Defense?

Israeli “self defense” is NOT what is going on, even though there is relentless 24/7 US mainstream media propaganda to camouflage the ruthless unleashing of the Israeli/US-paid-for mass killing war machine.

In "Eyeless in Gaza" Jonathan Cook calls out Netanyahu’s protests of waging a “necessary” war of self-defense against rockets and tunnels. He writes: Read below the fold...

Why US Propaganda Goose-Step to Nuclear War with Russia?

David North and Alex Lantier in a provocative article entitled “Are you ready for nuclear war?” insist that we all should be asking ourselves that question especially since the mysterious but war-mongering propaganda-useful destruction of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17! Read below the fold...

Evil No Longer ‘Lesser’, Even from Ostrich Stance

It’s hard to fight for human and social justice when one recognizes that the communication of horrifying truths has little chance of penetrating -- SERIOUSLY -- the hearts and minds of so many, many of those still dedicated to crony “truthiness” and the status quo -- hearts and minds of so many low-information and dead-conscienced but stubbornly self-labeled “progressives” of America.

Israel Wages 'Slaughter War' Claiming Victimhood

In reading Dennis Bernstein’s “The Whys Behind Israel’s Gaza Slaughter” I noted his references to a “slaughter war” being waged by Israel on Gaza. In his article Vijay Prashad, professor of international studies at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut had this to say: Read below the fold...

67 Vital/Random Considerations re Israeli/Palestinian Crisis

1) “Collective punishment” is a war crime under the Geneva Conventions. Israel is wreaking “collective punishment” on the population of Gaza with “Operation Protective Edge.” (Marjorie Cohn)

2) The Israeli government wages asymmetrical (excessively one-sided) war against Gaza almost every two years. (James M. Wall) Read below the fold...

Israeli/Palestinian TIMELINE of Past Fateful Month

Hayes Brown in “Timeline: The Month That Brought Gaza Back To The Breaking Point” attempts to give a progressive summary of the conflict between the Israeli government and the Palestinians since June 12th.

One year ago, Hayes Brown points out, John Kerry pushed the Israeli government and Palestinian leaderships to try to achieve a two-state solution, stressing that the window of opportunity was fast closing. Read below the fold...

$ New Military Jet=$600,000 Home For EVERY U.S. Homeless Person

Thread: 

Robbie Couch in an article on HuffPo recently asserted:

The $400 billion program to create a fleet of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets, which, as The Hill points out, is seven years behind schedule and chronically plagued with misfortunes and incompetencies, could have housed every homeless person in the U.S. with a $600,000 home.

Israel’s ‘Defensive Military Op’ Really Ethnic Cleansing

Bill Van Auken in “Air strikes kill civilians as Israel prepares new Gaza bloodbath” calls out Jen Psaki, US State Department spokesperson who, after declaring that the Zionist regime of Israel had a “right to defend itself”, was asked by a reporter whether Gazan Palestinians had a right to defend themselves. Her response? “I don’t understand what you’re getting at.”

HRC-Neutralizer of Left for Wall Street, Monsanto, NSA, etc.

Thread: 

Jon Queally in “Amid Populist Surge, Hillary Clinton to Wall Street's Rescue?” discusses a Tuesday NYT's article that suggests that Hillary Clinton is viewed as a “solution” by Wall Street in relation to all the unsettling populist calls for “stronger economic reforms and regulations.”

It seems that Hillary Clinton’s upcoming presidential nomination by many progressive/Dem cronies is viewed as a sure thing, a veritable cakewalk, a heralded “coronation” exercise. Read below the fold...
