This psychopath will risk nuclear confrontation over expanding the evil empire. Her immediate concern is escalating in Syria.

Clinton’s Syria War Plans

Let’s be clear why this is happening. The foundation funded Left propaganda rags won’t tell you:

The latest Red Scare tactics have moronic Democrats accusing everyone and their grandma of working for Putin. This should be too pathetic to bother with…

Democrats’ Tactic of Accusing Critics of Kremlin Allegiance Has Long, Ugly History in U.S.

Provoking Russia, Iran, Syria by killing them and arming terrorists, Mike Morell (CIA) boasts about lying to the world and committing war crimes. But there are no conspiracies in America of course…

My problem with Hedges concerns his cowardice over the September 11th Treason:

 

Message to Hedges:

Hedges has been a coward over the 9/11 Treason. This betrayal discredits him and others like Noam Chomsky, who also sold lies, the most dangerous lies, by letting them get away with it.

There is no way to stop the gains of the empire if you let them get away with massive attacks on the “homeland.” The ignorance Hedges displays is staggering. You ceded the entire debate to them on 9/12/01 and made yourself irrelevant. We had a chance to stop them. They allowed terror attacks on NYC and the Pentagon, and perhaps aided and abetted. They committed high Treason to cover it up and protect the Saudi sponsors. The CIA hid the hijackers from exposure for 16-18 months — ADMITTED TO SINCE 2005!

These facts render your efforts moot, Mr.Hedges. You will get exactly nowhere by allowing massive false flag terror attacks to occur without opposition. Your efforts are little more than the chatter of the Internet. Interesting entertainment. Nothing more.

Night of the Hollow Men

This was a night dominated by the hollow men of the Democratic Party: Panetta, Kaine, Biden and Obama. Men who knew better, but did worse. The theme was liberal virility, strength, and managerial efficiency. Missing was any empathy for the homeless and the hungry, the poor and the downtrodden. It was a frontal embrace of the neoliberal order, a demonstration that the Democrats have the competency and toughness to manage the imperial order in a time of severe internal and external stress.

The last three hours weren’t a full-throated repudiation of Sanderism, so much as a casual dismissal, as if the core concerns Bernie’s movement gave voice to regarding the ravages of economic inequality didn’t even merit their attention. And Bernie sat passively in the imperial box seats with Jane squirming at his side, watching it all unfold.

 

And then Bernie quit the party.

Has the tone of a Republican-sponsored hit job accusing her of international crimes that the Rethugs also engage in. It’s an effort to alienate moral people from Clinton, despite the rethugs being equally contemptible . Everything the Clintons do, the republicans also do and want to do more of. One of the chief whines from the right is that we don’t do enough exploitation around the world.

I also discuss Star Wars as American war propaganda in my short book on allegory and metaphor (free).

NY Times:

‘Star Wars’ and the Fantasy of American Violence

The bloody track of American history, from slavery to genocide to empire, is plain for all to see. But reckoning with the violence itself was the appeal: I thought I could confront our dark side, just like Luke Skywalker, and come away enlightened.

 

The most frustrating reality of all, American youth who join the military despite knowing they are agents of immoral empire. They do it anyway, like mercenaries, content with swallowing any and all bullshit myths, even those from popular movies.

And that’s why this blog is here.
