“The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.”
-George Orwell

I’ve certainly had my share of run-ins with Democratic Party apologists, the ones who insist that all the evils of today’s world are Bush’s fault, and who are impervious to contrary evidence. As if seven-and-a-half years of Obama’s imperial reign simply didn’t happen, or worse yet, that Obama is just a passive victim of circumstance. He’s merely responding to the big bad Bush world, and can only do positive things.

This is the mindset over at places like Mother Jones. You can post damning comments from Obama’s own Vice President, and yet those will not sink in. At all. The cognitive dissonance is beyond controllable levels. No truth shall pass.

“[Erdogan the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc.] poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad, except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra, and al Qaeda, and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”
-Your Sitting Vice President

Biden was told to shut up and to apologize immediately for telling the truth. Nothing was done about Erdogan, the Saudis, the Emiratis etc., except to send them more arms, such as those used to massacre the civilians of Yemen. Joe Biden thought he was informing the next generation of imperial technocrats, the Harvard graduating class, but apparently, they don’t yet possess the required security clearances to be shown the true inner workings of the empire.

The problem today is that radical fundamentalist Sunni Jihadis are willing to murder crowds and blow themselves up in the process. This was easily predicted, and little events like 9/11 may have pointed in that direction from the start. These Islamists are dedicated, well-trained, experienced in combat, and now spilling out across the world, as Syria becomes less tenable for them (mostly thanks to the Russians).

In Syria, they are proxy armies, much the same as those supported by our CIA in the Mujahadeen of the 1979-1989 Afghan War (launched by Democrat Jimmy Carter). There’s already a long history of using these types of people and having “allied” nations provide much of their weapons, money, and training to wage war covertly. It is a formula, a very successful formula. The people entrenched in the bowels of the American Empire credit this formula with bringing down the Soviet Union! Of course they’d do it again, and again, and again.

Now in 2016, American foreign policy has aided and abetted these ISIS terrorists for years. The buck stops at the Oval Office of Barack Obama. Most deluded Democrats are incapable of comprehending this, and they never will no matter the evidence.

So they say things like: Obama killed a lot of ISIS leaders.

As if that was the important point, instead of half of Syria becoming a terrorist wonderland with half a million dead and thousands of radical fighters returning to their home countries to slaughter thousands of innocent Westerners. Those attacks, such as the spree in Nice, provide endless justification for more war, more invasion, more bombing.

Since the White House publicizes this targeted-assassination propaganda it must be the crucial part of the story. We’re supposedly winning even though humanity is losing in a big way.

I’ve already made this lengthy case, of course. The US actions in Syria betrayed its lies. The Russians, who are the ultimate target of this Syria campaign, as in Obama’s other covert destabilization in Ukraine, have exposed the White House time and again. The US refused to bomb the long lines of ISIS oil tankers providing the money for their Caliphate and enriching Erdogan’s own son in the process.

The US imperial plan has been to kick the Russians out of its Mediterranean naval base and its Syrian air bases. It is Empire 101, an attack on Russia’s allies in order to weaken Russia, a seamless continuation of the rollback, which began in 1979. But the American people don’t understand how that game is played, and indeed they remain ignorant of why their country acts around the world at all.

Such ignorance is probably to be expected among most of the population, but those over at Mother Jones style themselves as informed intellectuals. Most are clearly not, as a political party’s talking point cannot be considered true knowledge about a situation. But the pseudo-intellectuals cannot tell the difference, or perhaps they just don’t want to. By accepting responsibility for Barack Obama’s crime spree this would make them culpable as well for supporting him. Thus, Democrats, and their loyal voters, remain half of the problem.

Lastly, the Mother Jones crowd types passionately about George Bush but ignores the fact that it was Democrat Nancy Pelosi who decreed: “Impeachment is off the table.” The Democrats, and later Barack Obama as President, protected everything that Bush/Cheney did. We witnessed a protection racket, a criminal system of protecting war criminals from prosecution and the acceptance of an imperial model, where expansion, destabilization, and Crimes Against the Peace are normalized.

Fascism.

One day after posting that the chief of Monsanto, India admitted to faking testing/safety dataoutright fraud — we have TV personality/science geek Bill Nye cozying up to the Frankenfood company.

What Did Monsanto Show Bill Nye to Make Him Fall “in Love” With GMOs?

Nye has stumbled into a political/corruption war that he is evidently woefully unprepared for. Science geeks can be pretty damn gullible when given so-called evidence by other science geeks. That the evidence is cooked up by a profit-driven house of lies, a very sophisticated one at that, goes right over the geek’s head. Expertise in one area (laboratory) doesn’t translate to expertise in others (deception, lies, corruption, Astroturfing, rigged testing, bribery, etc.).

In his book Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation, published just last November, Nye reiterated these points. His concern about GMOs centered mainly on unintended consequences of growing them over large expanses—he cited the example of crops engineered to resist herbicides, which have been linked pretty decisively to the decline of monarch butterflies, which rely on abundant milkweeds, which in turn have been largely wiped out in the Midwest by GMO-enabled herbicide use. Nye praised certain GMOs, such as corn engineered to repel certain insects, but concluded that “if you’re asking me, we should stop introducing genes from one species into another,” because “we just can’t know what will happen to other species in that modified species’ ecosystem.”

Now, Nye’s doubts have evidently fallen away like milkweeds under a fine mist of herbicide. In a February interview filmed backstage on Bill Maher’s HBO show (starting about 3:40 in the below video), Nye volunteered that he was working on a revision of the GMO section of Undeniable. He gave no details, just that he “went to Monsanto and I spent a lot of time with the scientists there.” As a result, he added with a grin, “I have revised my outlook, and am very excited about telling the world. When you’re in love, you want to tell the world!”

Some Wile E. Coyote level supergenius, by the name “Jack Patterson,” thinks that spouting buzzwords is equivalent to knowing what one is talking about. He enjoys one word witticisms like “disinformation” and “provocateur,” without demonstrating any actual knowledge behind any of his quite annoying utterances on Twitter. So this is my fuck off post to him. He doesn’t believe Nazis have taken over Ukraine, probably because his television hasn’t done that bit of thinking for him. Well here’s BBC:

Here’s the wrecking crew awarded large State Department bonuses straight from Asst. Secretary of state Victoria Nuland:

Here’s Nuland hand picking the current Prime Minister of Ukraine (Yatsenyuk, right), in the famous “Fuck the EU” call:

Here’s Nuland bragging that $5 Billion of US tax money has been dumped on Ukraine to wrench it away from the Russian sphere of influence.

Now for the Nazis!

Oleh Tyahnybok, Svboda Party leader:

Oleh Tyahnybok, has called for the liberation of his country from the “Muscovite-Jewish mafia.” After the 2010 conviction of the Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk for his supporting role in the death of nearly 30,000 people at the Sobibor camp, Tyahnybok rushed to Germany to declare him a hero who was “fighting for truth.” In the Ukrainian parliament, where Svoboda holds an unprecedented 37 seats, Tyahnybok’s deputy Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn is fond of quoting Joseph Goebbels – he has even founded a think tank originally called “the Joseph Goebbels Political Research Center.”
Is the US backing Neo-Nazis in Ukraine?

John McCain and other state department members have troubling ties to the ultra-nationalist Svoboda party

Current PM, “Yats,” so beloved by Dick Cheney’s former adviser, Victoria Nuland, said:

 “…facing a threat to be killed by invaders and sponsored by subhumans,” he said. ‘First, we will commemorate the heroes by wiping out those who killed them and then by cleaning our land from the evil.’” –The Mask Slips

Those sub-humans are Ukrainian citizens living in the east who prefer to speak Russian, as that’s their language. The Kiev coup government outlawed Russian as a language, and their brown shirt thugs have violently attacked Parliamentary speakers who attempt to speak Russian. They are, of course, now bombing the civilians in the east with planes and artillery.

UPDATE: Some videos were removed from youtube. This one compiles tons of interviews and investigations of the Nazis of western Ukraine:

But I guess I’m just getting started here.

SS officers honored as heroes!

But there’s so, so much more, if one actually cares to investigate what they’re talking about before sticking a dog-shit covered foot in his mouth.

The Nazi “Right Sector” mass murder in Odessa is a shockingly brutal example of neo-nazi footsoldiers in action:

Nazi tactics have been front and center since the Maidan sniper incident where Maidan side snipers shot people on both sides, all the while accusing the Ukraine government of doing the shooting:

I guess swastikas plastered all over Kiev and marching goon squads intimidating everyone in their paths is too subtle?

Just a bit of British comedic escapism. This one is also an elaborate defense of the status quo. It’s got a strong acceptance theme, an inability to change the past (or anything else) despite super powers.

The ladies were teary-eyed by the end, and this is a very character-centered movie. It seems to be sci-fi, but not really, romantic comedy, but not really either. What it is, more, is a poem about the major events in life, for well-off white people anyway. So there’s nothing about struggling for money. No war, no crime. Nice little reality if you can find it. That target demographic kind of custom-designed world lingered in the background.

So the film clings to the big moments for average westerners: love, marriage, birth and death. Very standard, very conventional, and a bit predictable. I can’t shake that feeling of being manipulated and pandered to, but that’s me.

Still, you could do a lot worse at your local Redbox this week. Although I just noticed Better Living Through Chemistry has showed up. That’s where I’ll be heading next.
