Lawlessness Is The New Normal

Paul Craig Roberts:

“Although the individual countries still retain some sovereignty from the EU government, they are all under Washington’s thumb, as demonstrated by the recent illegal and hostile action taken on Washington’s orders by France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Austria against the airliner carrying Bolivia’s President Evo Morales.

Flying back to Bolivia from Moscow, Morales’ plane was denied overflight and refueling permission by Washington’s French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese puppets and had to land in Austria, where the presidential plane was searched for Edward Snowden. It was a power play by Washington to kidnap Snowden from Bolivia’s presidential airliner in defiance of international law and to teach upstart reformers like Morales that independence from Washington’s orders is not permitted.

The European puppet states went along with this extraordinary breach of diplomacy and international law despite the fact that each of the countries is incensed that Washington is spying on their governments, diplomats, and citizens. Their thanks to Snowden, whose revelations made them aware that Washington was recording their every communication, was to help Washington capture Snowden.”


Breaking the Set (RT):



The Guardian today posted an investigation and a documentary film on the architects of the “Salvador Option” and the death squads of Iraq. Col. James Steele and Gen. David Petraus, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Chency, the names are expected but for Steele. The documentary highlights Steele’s atrocities from Vietnam through Central America on his way to Baghdad.

Numerous witnesses are on the record. I have one complaint, however, and that is a bogus civilian casualty count mentioned near the beginning of the film. A total of 130,000 Iraqis is stated as some kind of fact with no discussion or examination. This is likely the US military’s own body count; ironically from an invading force that bragged “we don’t do body counts” (Gen. Tommy Franks).

This July 21 [2011] is the 30th anniversary release date of Brian De Palma’s political/conspiracy thriller “Blow Out,” starring John Travolta, Nancy Allen and John Lithgow. Critics praised De Palma’s artful weaving of references to other directors and movies and real life events into “Blow Out” but audiences were turned off by the film’s ravagingly sad ending. As a movie heathen, I’m not so interested in De Palma’s cinematic virtuosity, and I feel that the critics never got to the heart of why this is such a powerful film — which is the fact that it’s a deep and devastating attack on America. The film’s numerous similarities and small divergences from today’s political landscape are instructive.

SPOILER ALERT! I reveal the ending of “Blow Out,” so if you haven’t seen it and intend to, you might want to stop reading now.


Ben Swann again, this time directly putting Obama in the hot seat. The president sidesteps the unconstitutional murder of several American citizens by simply claiming that he never “confirmed” these happened at all. History is certainly written by the victors. It didn’t happen unless the president writes it up himself. So, no impeachable crime there.

He also tries to obfuscate his signing statement about NOT going after Americans for unconstitutional “indefinite detention” while ignoring the question about his own legal team challenging the federal court injunction against same.

Obama’s take on Syria is Goebbels worthy. The US and its partners have turned Syria into a killing field. Their paid mercenaries and Jihadis engage in ethnic cleansing, rape and the murder of children. This has no bearing on the president’s fictional presentation of the situation. Nor does his rosy assessment of war crimes perpetrated against Libya, and the collusion with Libyan terrorist group LIFG enter the discussion. Nor the 60,000+ dead in that country, the Al Qaeda victories or the use of the same officially designated terrorist group LIFG in Syria today.

On the torture issue, Obama’s half-truth is a lie so insidious that it demands further inspection. Obama claims to have banned torture. By this he means that he banned torture by US personnel. His policies explicitly maintained the practice of “rendition” or “torture by proxy” — the practice of sending suspects to other nations to be tortured on behalf of the United States. Obama has clearly NOT banned torture, as he claims here, but simply made it a covert, black-op, unaccountable to the American people and kept behind the scenes. This is an improvement?
