Dueling Ideologies in New York: Putin v. Obama

obamaStephen Lendman – Obama addresses make painful listening. He represents ruthless US ambitions to rule the world – even at the risk of destroying it.

His remarks at all times reflect willful deception, entirely lacking truth, candor and straightforwardness. He’s a shameless demagogue, a con man, a disgrace to his people and office he holds – masquerading as a legitimate leader.

His rants lost credibility long ago. His policies speak for themselves. His agenda threatens humanity’s survival. His neocon infested administration deplores peace and stability. His claims otherwise ring hollow. His Monday General Assembly address was true to form.

His praise for UN achievements over seven decades belies its dismal record. Its mandate “to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war” failed to prevent them throughout its entire history – US-led NATO and Israel bearing most responsibility.

Obama ludicrously claimed “unparalleled advances in human liberty and prosperity…lift(ing) more than a billion people from poverty…constraining bigger countries from imposing our will on smaller ones…advancing the emergence of democracy and development and individual liberty on every continent.”

Fact: Only a fool or liar believes this rubbish. Human liberty and prosperity were never more imperiled.

Fact: Billions of people are mired in poverty worldwide. Half the US population is either impoverished or bordering on it. Poverty in other Western countries and Israel are increasing. So-called “real progress” Obama touts is nonexistent.

Fact: No nation imposes its will more on other nations of all sizes than America, none more aggressively, recklessly, and ruthlessly.

Fact: None wages more direct and proxy wars. None more greatly threatens world peace and stability – none more intolerant of democracy anywhere at home and abroad, none more disdainful of rule of law principles, none more hated for its villainy.

Obama revealed his rage for war, saying he’ll “never hesitate to protect my country or our allies, unilaterally and by force where necessary.”

Fact: America’s only enemies are ones it invents. Endless wars on humanity reflect longstanding bipartisan US policy. Continue reading

Gallup: 60% of Americans Want a New Political Party. But, Why? A Crisis of Legitimacy

Eric Zuesse – A Gallup poll issued on September 25th is headlined “Majority in U.S. Maintain Need for Third Major Party,” and it opens: “A majority of Americans, 60%, say a third major political party is needed because the Republican and Democratic parties ‘do such a poor job’ of representing the American people.”

americanWhen Gallup started polling on this matter in 2003, only 40% wanted a different major party from the two existing major parties.

The only other time when as high as 60% wanted a new major party was in October 2013, when the government shut down — something that now threatens to repeat. No other period had a percentage this high. Continue reading

The Pope: “a poor church for the poor”

popeJon Rappoport – In his first statement to the press after his election as Pope, Francis said: “This is what I want, a poor church for the poor.”

And a jet and an entourage and massive security, as he wings his way to bring that message of poverty to the masses.

I wonder how the message would be received in America’s inner cities.

The Pope’s recipe for change, if there is to be any change at all, seems to fall under the category of “income redistribution.”

Apparently, carbon taxes and cap and trade would fit the redistribution agenda.

Forget the fact that a carbon monarchy would drastically reduce available energy in the Third World. But don’t worry, poverty is good. Embrace it.

The Pope is headlining a big show in the US because he and Obama are on the same page. They both want to excoriate capitalism, while conveniently avoiding the subject of Globalist trade treaties, which are designed to expand poverty and destroy millions of jobs.

Since the Pope is willing to mention specifics, such as the horrors of air conditioning, he should be willing to address GATT, the WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA, and the TPP: the treaties by which elite Globalists wreak havoc. Until he does discuss them, and at length, his statements about poverty deserve no more attention than any politician’s.

As for his stance on immigration and the US southern border, his sympathy for destitute Catholic refugees making their way into America dovetails nicely with the goal of expanding the flock, which has been declining in this country. Continue reading

Boehner Calls It Quits – Out At End Of October

Boehner Bombshell: House Speaker Quits, Throws Congress Into Chaos

boehnerNewsmax – House Speaker John Boehner will resign from Congress at the end of October, lawmakers said, following repeated clashes with conservative members of his Republican conference.

His move throws Congress into chaos as it tries to avert a government shutdown next week.

Boehner is citing the defeat last year of former No. 2 Republican Eric Cantor and his meeting this week with Pope Francis as among reasons, according to a Republican aide. He announced his decision to rank and file Republicans Friday morning.

Boehner’s now free to ignore the demands of rank-and-file Republicans who say they’re willing to shut down the government rather than continue paying Planned Parenthood for its non-abortion health services. He will be able to schedule a quick vote on the funding bill that the Senate plans to vote on next week. Enough Democrats would vote for that to avoid a government shutdown on Oct. 1.

The shutdown risk, then, would shift to December, when the short-term funding would expire.  Continue reading . . .

Josh Siegel – House Speaker John Boehner announced to Republican lawmakers this morning that he will resign as speaker and from Congress at the end of October, according to news reports. Continue reading

Germany Moves Away from the US Anti-Putin Alliance. Joins Forces with Russia in Coalition to Defeat ISIS?

In a surprise move Germany left the anti-Putin-alliance formed by the USA: Germany is now officially welcoming Moscow’s readiness to act in Syria and is starting an initiative together with the Russians and the French to bring an end to the war. This is to stop the constant stream of refugees. Germany has ordered thousands of soldiers into readiness. 

Germany surprisingly left the alliance formed together with the United States which intended to block Russia’s entry into the Syrian conflict.

Minister of Defence Ursula von der Leyen told Der Spiegel that she welcomed president Putin’s intentions of joining the fight against the extremist organization “Islamic State”. It would be a matter of mutual interests, she said. Continue reading

Defending National Sovereignty from the NWO

“Sovereignty…as understood in the Declaration of Independence was originally, and by nature, the equal and unalienable possession of individual human beings. The original equality of all human beings was an equality of sovereignty; no man had more right to rule another than the other had to rule him.” ― Harry V. Jaffa

Sartre – In a world that is virtually unrecognizable from the universal principles that underpinned Western Civilization, the fundamental concept of national sovereignty is being attacked as a relic of a former age. The New World Order is designed to eliminate the self-government of sovereign nations. While individuals live under the domain of established states, the fact that specific regimes operate within and often under the auspices of international hegemony that routinely violates the independence of specific countries is undeniable. The “world community” is not a voluntary association of collaborating governments; it is a euphemism of a top down despotic authoritarian system for global control and punishment for uncooperative governments.

sovereigntyWhen the United Nations was established after World War II, the true objective of destroying the axis of competing Neo Global Totalitarianism exposed its real path and agenda for worldwide domination.  The New World Order emerged with the full blessing of the United States. An uninterrupted march towards imposing the will of global elites upon individual countries has been the results from setting into motion the forces of internationalism.

America has been totally betrayed by our designated and appointed officials during the decades of systematic dismantling of our independence and economic prosperity. With this assault against the nation-state, the peoples of the world have been herded into a global concentration camp that far exceeds the wildest dreams of the Nazi SS.

National Sovereignty: Why It Is Worth Defending by Cornell professor Jeremy Rabkin, who provides a compelling argument. Review his book, The Case for Sovereignty. Continue reading
