The giant and the boy who threw stones

Jeff Nguyen:

Once more with feeling…Israel is a nuclear powerhouse, Gaza is a ghetto. Shoulder fired rockets ≠ F-15 fighter jets. Talk about deconstructing myths, check out: Dissecting IDF propaganda: The numbers behind the rocket attacks. Peace and solidarity to all of the Palestinian and Israeli people caught in the crossfire.

Most American Christians are familiar with the biblical story of David and Goliath. This story has all the features of the underdog coming out on top that Americans love to lap up with their New York Times and morning cup of coffee. Alas, the government of Israel also knows all too well how Americans love their mythologies from the one about how the early settlers (murdering conquerors) had a bountiful feast with the Injuns (rightful land dwellers) at Plymouth Rock to how an African American POTUS represents the culmination of the civil rights era and not the co-opting of it. For most of my naive, apolitical life I passively bought the story hook, line, and sinker of how Israel represents poor, little David standing up to the Philistine Goliath’s who would do them no little harm. In the Bible, when the two face off in the…

Gaza, where you have 58 seconds to live

Jeff Nguyen:

For the oppressed, history repeats itself with a frequency and intensity the privileged will never know. The Israel/Palestine genocide gives lie to the falsehood that Americans love to root for the underdog. The reality is that many Americans enjoy the privileges that life affords them by having the biggest guns and baddest bombs on the global block. For further reflection…see the fable of The Giant and the Boy Who Threw Stones.

The sky is clear. There are no clouds to hide the drone coasting above your home. Despite being thousands of meters above you, its camera sees everything. You wonder if the drone operator, who sits comfortably in an air conditioned room in a remote Israeli military base, is making eye contact with you.

You hear a faint scraping sound. And then you hear a loud blast. Israel has just knocked on your roof.

Quick. You have fifty-eight seconds to make it out alive. The missile that hit your home wasn’t equipped with an explosive warhead. It’s purpose, you’ve been told, is to warn you that your home is slated for destruction. Your neighbors poke their heads out of their windows and urge you to run.

You have forty seconds left. The warning blast knocked in your roof. What good is a warning that kills you before you’re actually meant to die?

Your neighbors…

“operation” bomb-the-hell-out-of-Gaza-this-has-nothing-to-do-with-security

Jeff Nguyen:

Well, it looks like Israel has invoked the blessed doctrine of asymmetrical self-defense once again. Word is that Israeli intelligence covered up the kidnapped teens’ deaths to milk public sympathy. Where is the public outrage in the U.S.? That’s a rhetorical question.

The Zionists are again bombing Gaza, in another sadistically-named “operation” which I will not repeat, out of respect for the Palestinians of Gaza. Why bother with the names, just be honest: bomb-the-hell-out-of-Gaza-this-has-nothing-to-do-with-security # XXX

 “Fascism is capitalism plus murder.”

-Upton Sinclair

Well, now that I’m done scarfing down mom’s apple pie, furling up old glory for another year and retrieving my chihuahua/pug from under the couch, where he’s been hiding since the fireworks commenced in my neighborhood, it’s time to get back to the real business of all red, white and blue-blooded Americans…making wealthy people wealthier. Recently, I engaged in a dialogue taking place over at Systemic Disorder that has helped me to gain some perspective on the nagging sensation that a new brand of fascism has come to the sweet land of liberty. Pete Dolack, the blog’s estimable author, responded to one of my comments, “Fascism need not (and in the U.S. would not be) jackbooted militarists parading down the street, it merely needs a social base fooled by rhetoric into acting against its own interests.” Pete cited the Tea Party, a “grassroots” movement that just happens to be financially backed by the Koch-booger brothers, as an example of this confluence of corporate and collective power. I must admit that for some time when the topic of fascism arose, “jackbooted militarists parading down the street” were precisely what I visualized but it’s been slowly dawning on me that the U.S.’s long and winding road to a neofascist state has been a long time comin’. In America, we’re witnessing a perfect storm of corporate influence and state power that has captured the public interests from education to healthcare to the justice system. The American gen pop has witnessed the bankers and billionaires operating with impunity, the public schools being decimated and the healthcare insurers billing anything that moves.

On the international stage, the corporate-capitalists have brought democracy death and destruction on previously unimaginable scales to any country which finds itself in the crosshairs of the global elite. Breaking events in Iraq have done a good job of diverting attention and public scrutiny from breaking events in Ukraine which helped us forget about breaking events in Syria which distracted us from breaking events in Libya which was…well, you get the point. The neoliberal, disaster capitalists have controlled the public discourse from start to finish and stoked the glowing embers of neofascism from Greece to Spain to Ukraine. Meanwhile, the mission accomplished creeps have continued to profit from the mass destruction they have unleashed in the Levant while spinning tales of sectarian violence and corruption. Iraqi writer, Sami Ramadani, has deftly deconstructed the sectarian violence myth that the Western powers used to justify “democracy building in the Middle East, as they conveniently ignored the very real sectarian fissures in their own backyards. In the homeland, the multibillion dollar security apparatus is in place to manage dissent and ensure that a constant state of fear and loathing is maintained towards anyone who dares to think critically or question the narratives of the dominant/power culture. The recent rulings by the SCOTUS have simply codified the deeply held resentments the elite have towards dues-collecting unions and uppity women. I only hope in my lifetime to see the day when women are declared people, too.

The massive security and surveillance state in America is an all too predictable succession of events for an elite grown increasingly anxious that the people, whose labors they have profited off of immensely, will soon demand a raise in their allowances…with pitchforks. Capitalism might collapse under it’s own oppressive weight by then, once the planet or the people say “no más” to going another round in this neofuedal, death match that was fixed from the start. America, on it’s best days, has had a hard time actualizing the dream of racial, gender and economic equality espoused to it’s citizens and has settled for the reality of material comfort, social status and reality television as a measure of it’s collective worth. The struggle against neoliberalism, disaster capitalism and neofascism is global in nature and the architects of austerity use borders, ethnicity and ideology to keep us divided and conquered. Therefore, those who dream of a world without borders must be willing to link arms in solidarity in a manner that transcends borders, ethnicities and ideologies. My own children have grown up thinking that mass surveillance, decades upon decades of war and an increasingly militarized, police state are the new normal. Americans would be hard pressed to remember the last time the U.S. wasn’t at war with it’s neighbors. The road to fascism is not built overnight but, eventually, there may come a day when one looks out the window and sees the wing-tipped corporatists “parading down the street”. May the road rise up to meet their smug countenances…hard.

Peace and solidarity to all readers.

Force Be Damned

by Peter Schreiner

“How I wish I could surrender my soul; Shed the clothes that become my skin; See the liar that burns within my needing.” Tears and Rain – James Blunt

Some of the planet’s smartest, caring, and aware people write the blogs I read and follow, and so it is that they have shown and taught me a thing or two, quite a many thing or two. But that’s how things should be, learning from each other. —Where else are we supposed to go? We have a platform that present us—for the time being—an opportunity to share ourselves freely and openly. The things we offer, the things we gather, are things too often unpleasant. And we expose these things; some do at a personal risk.

Armed with awareness and the light of knowledge we hope to do our part in shaping the world to the better, the better of all. And when I say all, I don’t mean the watered-down version of all; I mean all.

Theirry and the gorilla: WeAnimals.org – Jo-Anne McArthur

(Photo credit: Theirry and the gorilla: WeAnimals.org – Jo-Anne McArthur)

We’re not looking for fame, power, or riches. Although the proper application of these things might further our goals, it is not who we are. Our aspirations are for the explosion of truth, justice, peace, and the release from oppression and slavery. In this our lofty goal we are The Vanguard of Noble Endeavor, with mission we cannot turn our backs on. I say vanguard because in spite of our persistence and our unwavering dedication I don’t see us making any radical world changing progress during our short time on earth, nor with any of the near to follow generations, perhaps for that matter in this whole epoch of Homo sapiens sapiens.

I dislike coming across as negative and I don’t mean to diminish our vigor, but I believe there is only little we are capable of, little ground we can realistically hope to gain. But rather than letting that discouraging sentiment give rise to acquiescence it should, I hope, stir you to dogged defiance. For just at that moment when all seems lost, our efforts futile, should we reach deep into our fiber our spirits and rise up with all we have we will at least know there was no more we could have done; and who knows what may follow from that in years to come.

The point of this letter is simply that I would like to share with you my perspective—suspiciously unpopular and wildly controversial, I hold it as truth. You decide.

Something holds us back. That should be obvious. By this time in our existence, we should have reached a near utopian plateau. But we haven’t, we’re nowhere close. In fact, I’d say we’re moving in the opposite direction. We have the whole of history to reflect and to have learnt. Yet what have we learnt?

There is a controlling force. Be it the momentum of eons, the gods, aliens (I’m serious, stop snickering), the elite, the government, our culture and traditions, religions, ourselves, or more than likely a poisonous combination of these ingredients. I don’t know exactly what, but whatever it is it is real and really powerful—existing beyond our imaginations—something that keeps us inebriated with trivialities—think sports, porn, television, electronics, booze, drugs, anything to keep us unaware and distracted. And worse than that, it keeps us at odds with one another, and it does it most expertly. This force pays lip service to harmony while it enlivens our fear, hate, lust, racism, prejudice, supremacy, and here’s the real kicker, speciesism.

Hence forth, I’ll simply call this force, Force.

Force holds sway and dominance over most of us by appeasing and nurturing our selfish and violent genes. We’ve all fallen captive to Force early in life and whilst only a few have loosened their shackles, we remain chained. Force has captured kings, priests, and politicians; rich, poor, and the fading middle classes; simpletons and intellectuals; the philosopher and the apathetic alike; the sympathetic and the hardened, all enchanted by its beauty and charm; its sweet and addictive enticements and promises.

And so, we carry on as we have always done.

Force satisfies us. Our greed, comfort, and security, but most of all the satisfaction of our palate while compromising our compassion. Our whole history of existence continues to focus on food and drink—it’s the constant; lunch in our day-to-day slavish grind, our celebrations and holidays, our gatherings, the little rewards we like to afford ourselves. And after all, why not, food and drink is what keeps us alive and nourished. We give thanks to the gods, the earth, the sun, the moon, the rain, the farmers, the neighbors, and even to ourselves for its life-giving pleasure.

We should enjoy it and be grateful for it.

(Photo credit: The Australian bull: AnimalsAustralia.org)

But should we kill for it?

And, if we choose to kill, what effect has that on our psyche, our disposition?

Has our genome advanced or degraded to point where we can kill without compulsion or consequence to ourselves, our spiritual entity?

I believe not.

In whichever direction our DNA has taken us we still have compassion, somewhere locked within. And therein lie the key.

Force understands this; threatened by it.

Compassion is its Achilles heel.

Force knows that if it can keep us so ruthless as to confine, torture, abuse, and kill the least helpless of creatures among us, we’ll have no limits to the atrocities we lend ourselves to, for we are a myopic species that tends to extremes. Not to mention the contamination of our spirit, our love, and the distortion of our perception that bloodshed and violence imparts to us, whether we give it, received it, or simply condone it—and not just from the violence itself but from the ingesting and absorption of traumatized flesh into our systems.

Thus, I am vegan anarchist.

I offer Force no allegiance.

Force be damned!

And again damned!

I have chosen to honor the dignity of all sentient life on earth, all to be free of enslavement, fear, and oppression. It doesn’t matter if they be human or animal—suffering and oppression are the same to the victim. The struggles of all the oppressed are my struggles, their pain is mine, their freedom or servitude is mine. And in this, I stand with them against Force. And Force be damned!

The occupation will not be televised

Jeff Nguyen:

It was only last summer that emergency management officials shut off the power during a heatwave just because they could. This is an act of war akin to Israel’s cutting off water supplies in the occupied territories which is a good description for Detroit, an occupied territory run by unelected officials subservient to the bankers and corporate shot callers.  The residents of Detroit know all too well that wars can be waged without firing a single shot.

Activists in Detroit have appealed to the United Nations over the city’s move to shut off the water of thousands of residents. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department says half of its 323,000 accounts are delinquent and has begun turning off the taps of those who do not pay bills that total above $150 or that are 60 days late. Since March, up to 3,000 account holders have had their water cut off every week.

The Detroit water authority carries an estimated $5 billion in debt and has been the subject of privatization talks. In a submission to the United Nations special rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, activists say Detroit is trying to push through a…

SO YOU WANT A WAR

by Tubularsock

Tube CIA SECRETS heading

 

Have you ever been in a situation where you turn on the kitchen lights in the middle of the night to retrieve a glass of water and the floor is alive with a flurry of rapidly moving cockroaches?

Have you ever wondered where those cockroaches “hang out” during the day?

THINK TANKS, that is where they hang out.

Yep, that’s where.

And how does Tubularsock know?

Elementary, Dr Watson ……….. observation and deduction, observation and deduction.

****************************

The first sign that we are in trouble is that the hopefully dead come alive.

America turns on the TV and the living dead himself, Dick Cheney and his mummified wife, Lynn are sitting side by side pontificating on how the Bush Administration had handed Iraq over to Obama at the peak of success after that surge and all.

And just how Obama had dropped the ball and BECAUSE of that turned Iraq’s “freedom” into a Civil War not a war of liberation and democracy.

Fun side note: Tubularsock contacted Monsanto to see if they had any kind of a deadly poisonous, venomous, toxic, noxious, fatal, lethal, mortal-death-dealing spray that would kill an un-dead-Cheney and his mummified wife, Lynn.

Sorry to say, EVEN Monsanto hasn’t developed something that powerful but their GMO soybeans are very close.

The interesting thing about un-dead Dick and his mummified wife, Lynn is that they live in an alternate reality and Dick is so convinced that his alternate reality is “real” that he conveys that reality onto people who are easily deceived.

Cheneyevil

 

Now this all works because most people will follow an un-dead Cheney rather than look at the facts.

AND THE SAME FACTS EXIST TODAY AS THEY DID WHEN BUSH AND THE BOYS AND THAT TROLLOP CONDOLEEZZA RICE all disregarded the reality that was Iraq for some mis-calculated obsessive Dungeon and Dragon game.

Condi jest

 

Now, Tubularsock will make it simple for you …………

Remember when we “shocked and awed” Iraq and in the middle of all that mess George-the-Dumber finally figured out that Iraq was comprised of Sunnis and Shiites and Kurds.

George-the-Dumber was not all that swift on foreign policy remember and was the type of American that thinks Africa is a country!

That being said everyone knew AT THE TIME that there were plans in the works to attack Iraq even before the 9/11 “attack”. That information was available and discussed on the edges of political circles. Even Tubularsock knew and discussed it in the newsletter he was writing at the time and let me assure you that despite the photographic evidence to the contrary ……… Tubularsock is no “insider”!

Now remember, Saddam Who’s-sane(?) was a brutal dictator that the U.S. created and supported. It was the U.S. (The Reagan Administration) that provided the chemical weapons to him that he used on the Kurds.

Saddam held Iraq together by being so fucking brutal that the TRADITIONAL HATRED between the Sunnis and Shiites was overshadowed by that strong-arm brutality. That is what kept Iraq as a country. Saddam was in truth a secularist actually. He believed that the State was more important than Islam per se. However, he was considered to be a Sunni Muslim since he came from a Sunni family. You just can’t get away from your family no matter how brutal you are! Think of that next time you visit your mother!

And then Bush and the boys and that trollop Condoleezza Rice decided to attack Iraq and as we all know …….. when you break Humpty-Dumpty, “all the kings horses and all the kings men” can’t put him back together again.

So trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lost lives later and we are back once again with the same cockroaches that lied us into this mess blabbing away on how to fix Humpty-Dumpty and blaming everyone else for their gigantic failure.

What we have discovered is that we were not greeted as “liberators” as Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and Vice President Cheney said we would be.

It took longer than six months as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had projected.

And there were no WMD’s and no connection between Saddam and the 9/11 “attack”.

But all of that was KNOWN in March 2003 …….. how?

Elementary, Dr. Watson ……….. observation and deduction, observation and deduction.

But you know all of this yourself and if you didn’t ……. now you do but Tubularsock has led you here for a reason and that reason is for some information that you may not know.

Or at least not remember.

Who is backing all this terrorism? Oh sure, the CIA is playing two sides against the middle as usual but there are other players in the Middle Eastern sand box and a great deal of funding to support this conglomerate of terrorists groups come from none-other than our so called Middle Eastern allies, and the “ financial contributions” are funneled through the banking system in Kuwait.

According to Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (a think tank): “Kuwait’s banking system and its money changers have long been a huge problem because they are a major conduit for money to extremist groups in Syria and now Iraq.” (Not like the U.S. CIA hasn’t.)

And from The Brookings Institute (another think tank) study of December, 2013: “Over the last two and a half years, Kuwait has emerged as a financing and organizational hub for charities and individuals supporting Syria’s myriad rebel groups.” (Not like the U.S. CIA hasn’t.)

By using Kuwait’s weak financial rules hundreds of millions of dollars have moved through that country from Arab Gulf countries’ donors traveling through Turkey or Jordan to reach a variety of terrorist groups in Syria. (Not like the U.S. CIA hasn’t.)

Now Tubularsock is talking here about Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. For years wealthy donors from those countries have funded The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Tube Parade

 

But Tubularsock will focus on Saudi Arabia because it is there that the bucks were “invested” that helped to create this entire 9/11 episode. And a major focal point is the Saudi Royal Family. But remember the Saudi’s were not alone!

………………………………..

Do you remember this documented evidence? The Saudi Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan and his wife “donated” $130,000.00 which found its way to help fund Mohamed Atta. Atta was the lead 9/11 terrorist, who crashed the hijacked plane he piloted into the North Tower.

TubeBandarDeal

 

……………………………….

The Bush family was so close to Bandar that Bush-the-Dumber nicked-named him “Bandar Bush”.

Prince Bandar and President Bush reportedly smoked cigars on the White House balcony while the two men talked about the attacks that occurred just two days before.

AND two days after that was when the Saudis were flown out of the U.S..

You may recall that four days after the planes hit the World Trade Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. the FAA closed down all air space within the United States yet the Bush Administration allowed private jetliners to fly about and pick up Saudis and fly them out of the country. WITHOUT the FBI or anyone else asking any questions.

And one of the jetliners was leased by none-other than our Arch-Enemy Osama bin Laden himself! But NO QUESTIONS WERE ASKED!

You, as an American citizen could not fly to see your ailing grandmother but the bin Laden family and the Saudi Royal Family and their minions were free to fly away.

……………………………….

And don’t forget that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis and three of them entered the United States on “expedited-visas” which required no photograph. A system that had been created by the Bush Administration to allow Saudis to enter and exit the U.S. with minimum inconvenience.

………………………………

Now, add this: “U.S. military sources have given the FBI information that suggests five of the alleged hijackers of the planes that were used in Tuesday’s terror attacks received training at secure U.S. military installations in the 1990s.” (Newsweek)

Three at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., another trained in strategy and tactics at the Air War College in Montgomery, Ala.,and the fifth man received language instruction at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Tex.. (Newsweek)

……………………………….

Oh gosh …… Tubularsock would be remiss if he didn’t remind you that in 2002, Congress investigated the September 11 attacks on the US and released an 800-page report detailing their findings. Remember?

President Bush, for reasons of NATIONAL SECURITY single-handedly censored 28 entire pages of the 800-page Congressional report.

THOSE 28 PAGES DELT WITH THE ROLE OF SAUDI ARABIA IN THE 9/11 ATTACK.

Bushkiss

 

…………………………………

In 2013, two members of the House of Representative, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA)  both read the Bush-censored sections and their public response was that they were “absolutely shocked” by the amount of evidence implicating one of America’s strongest allies in the attack. And guess what country that happens to be in a document dealing with Saudi Arabia? 

There is a leaked CIA memo floating around showing that the US government has known all along that it was Saudi Arabia and not the Taliban, al Qaida, Afghanistan or Iraq that attacked America on September 11, 2001.

Of course. Why else would Bush have covered over this 28 pages?

But the real question NOW is why is Obama still not releasing it to the public?

As this bi-partisan team of Representatives concedes, they can’t even tell the American people what country it is “that betrayed us” and was actually behind the attacks on 9/11 without committing treason and going to prison.

But shouldn’t that be what Bush and Obama should be worried about? TREASON?

*************************

But far be it for Tubularsock to leave you with all this without letting you know that the Saudi’s are not alone in this world shattering event. There are other culprits as well.

And who you ask, are they?

Elementary, Dr Watson ……….. observation and deduction, observation and deduction.
