116 sheep, many of them pregnant, were
Shoved to the border of their owner’s land
By centurion dogs possessed by driving
Their charges, in that way mean dogs do
Fangs glistening, they flaunted authority
As if they were humans herding refugees
To the torn frontier of their birth country
Forcing them against razor-wired fences
Neither letting them cross the frontier
Nor giving them sanction to remain

Hillary Clinton: History Repeats Itself?

Hillary Clinton: History Repeats Itself?

By Andre Vltchek
Dissident Voice
August 27, 2016

Once upon a time, there was a man called James Buchanan.

He was a Democrat, a Secretary of State and then the
President of the United States.

A good friend of mine, a historian, told me about him.

Buchanan was the last U.S. President who previously served
as Secretary of State.

He was a Pennsylvania native, and he took his place in the
Oval Office in 1857.

Now, more than 150 years later, Hillary Clinton may be about
to follow in his footsteps.

And some footsteps they were!

Before serving as Secretary of State (in the administration
of President James K. Polk), James Buchanan was a Senator,
elected as a Democrat, same as Mrs. Clinton.

While heading the State Department, the future President did
some nasty, really nasty things, like provoking a war with Mexico
and defining Washington’s colonialist policy towards Cuba and
the Caribbean basin.

Elected President at a time of growing animosity between the
industrial anti-slavery North and agrarian pro-slavery South,
he was unable to calm the passions of the opposing sides and
to find a political solution to the crises.

He committed some of the most outrageous errors, and to this day
is remembered as one of the worst leaders in American history,
being held responsible for the Civil War, which started just a few
months after he retired.

Before stepping down as a President, Buchanan’s only suggestion
for averting the disaster was issuing, “an explanatory amendment”
reaffirming the constitutionality of slavery in the states, the
fugitive slave laws, and popular sovereignty in the territories.

The National Intelligencer, then a leading opposition newspaper,
published a biting, sarcastic piece about Buchanan’s adventurism
and expansionism:

We must retrench the extravagant list of magnificent schemes
which received the sanction of the Executive … the great Napoleon
himself, with all the resources of an empire at his sole command,
never ventured the simultaneous accomplishments of so many
daring projects. The acquisition of Cuba …; the construction of
a Pacific Railroad …; a Mexican protectorate, the international
preponderance in Central America, in spite of all the powers of
Europe; the submission of distant South American states; … the
enlargement of the Navy; a largely increased standing Army … what
government on earth could possibly meet all the exigencies of such
a flood of innovations?

Sounds familiar?

Hillary Clinton, also a former Senator for the Democratic Party, also
used her time at the State Department in the most ‘effective way’.

She initiated a war in Libya, provoked a devastating civil war in
Syria and masterminded a coup in Honduras, while provoking and
antagonizing left wing governments in virtually all parts of Latin
America.

Running for President of the United States at a time of growing
social tension and what is often described as ‘popular outrage’,
Mrs. Clinton, just like Mr. Buchanan, is now offering absolutely
no new, progressive and effective solutions or reforms that could
prevent the situation from slipping into a shattering social disaster.

She is fighting for the status quo, and in the process eliminating
her political opponents in the most Machiavellian fashion.

Many now predict that if Hillary Clinton is elected, her reign
may lead into a real tragedy similar to the one that occurred
in the United States a little over 150 years ago.

Unlike James Buchanan, she also sits on a pile of nuclear weapons,
while doing her absolute best to antagonize and provoke two
powerful and independent-minded nations: China and Russia.

Her policies could easily lead to the most destructive international
conflict, or even a series of conflicts.

But it does not seem to distress her.

She is on her ego trip, and on a crusade.

While history judges Mr. Buchanan simply as an inept, bigoted,
and trigger-happy imperialist and supremacist, Mrs. Clinton also
shares all those characteristics of her predecessor, but with her
own unique touch: she is also in possession of those grotesque
and deadly, “qualities” of Dr. Strangelove.

*****

Human beings are not as complex as we often think they are,
and history tends to repeat itself.

Both of this year’s US Presidential candidates have, undoubtedly,
their doubles in the not so distant past.

While Donald Trump’s lived in the 20th Century in Germany
and Italy, Hillary Clinton had a homegrown predecessor; a
man who was defending slavery and the status quo and who,
most importantly, turned the United States into an aggressive
imperialist and neo-colonialist power.

Modern America: The Empire of Lies

Modern America: The Empire of Lies

By Martin Berger
Information Clearing House
August 22, 2016

The notion that the United States is an empire of lies would be
difficult to dispute by anyone who has followed the events of the
last decade.

It’s a sad fact that today the absolute majority of Washington’s
policies along with the foundation of so-called, “American
Democracy” are built upon blatant lies.

So is it any wonder that so-called American, “heroes” of the Rio
Olympics: swimmers James Feigen, Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Benz and
Jack Conger, provided false testimonies about them being robbed
in a taxi on the way to the Olympic Village?

It turns out now that nobody came as close as even attempting
to rob them.

Now these athletes may face charges of making false accusations in
Brazil, along with being accused of discrediting the sitting Brazilian
President Dilma Vana Rousseff who has been the prime target of
Washington’s meddling recently.

In all honesty, there is no need for being surprised, since these,
“hero-swimmers” have been educated regarding Washington’s lies,
encountered in virtually all aspects of an American’s life.

The White House has been lying its way through various attempts
to overthrow unwanted governments and politicians upon the
international stage, spreading disinformation through such CIA,
“benefactors” like George Soros.

The entire world witnessed former US Secretary of State Colin
Powell in all seriousness displaying tubes with unknown substances
in them before the UN Security Council, claiming they represented,
“convincing and incriminating” evidence against Iraq’s Saddam
Hussein, enough to launch a military attack against the nation.

We remember how renowned American journalist, Pulitzer Prize
Laureate Seymour Hersh, caught the US government officially
disseminating lies about how, “terrorist number one” Osama bin
Laden was actually killed.

He has also published an investigation piece under the title,
“Whose Sarin“, demonstrating that the US government and
President Barack Obama personally, deliberately lied when
they claimed that the Syrian government had used sarin
poison gas back in 2013.

It’s been announced that Hersh was using information he had
received from sources within the US intelligence community
and the Pentagon.

This evidence confirmed that both the White House statements
and fraudulent propaganda unwound by the media, pursued the
sole goal – to create a pretext for armed intervention in Syria
and replace the government in Damascus with Washington’s
subordinates, thus taking full control of the country.

Moreover, the American Thinker would note that:

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton committed
her second gaffe in as many days on the campaign trail Monday
night, claiming that the US, “did not lose a single person” in
Libya during her time as secretary of state. To Hillary Clinton,
the four male officials and warriors do not matter at all. They
are at best an inconvenience. If they were alive, they would have
to be dealt with, but because they are dead, they can be forgotten.

But honestly, what does one expect from the likes of Hillary
Clinton if even the Washington Post wouldn’t hesitate to present
a video filled with her lies and “shifting positions?”

Her ideas on Bosnia, healthcare, Wall Street, NAFTA are ever-
shifting, since she’s convinced that Americans are unable to
memorize basic facts or recall even recent American history.

Accusing Hillary Clinton of blatant hypocrisy, alternative media
source Counter Punch would use a hash tag #NeverHillary, while
giving the recent Democrats’ champion the following evaluation:

“She’s sleazy – a cheater and a liar”, noting that she wanted to
set the minimum wage at the level of 12 dollars per hour, but
since Bernie’s 15 dollars per hour was more popular, she claimed
she wanted to introduce precisely the same wage. When pressed,
she conceded she’d “like” 15 dollars per hour, but would not lift
a finger to make it happen federally. Incredibly, she still conducts
herself in this same manner.

The Baltimore Sun did not hesitate to accuse Clinton of the
deliberate concealment of facts from Congress and the American
people either, noting that the State Department’s inspector general
released a report last week concluding that Hillary Clinton is a
breathtakingly brazen and consistent liar.

What’s infuriating about all of this is that it is not, in fact, news.

Over a year ago, Hillary Clinton held a press conference at the
United Nations with the intent to put the whole controversy around
her released emails to rest, yet, nearly every significant statement
she made was a lie, The Baltimore Sun would note, adding that we
have known it for a year now, that from the earliest days of this
scandal, Clinton was lying.

So what behavior one can expect from most American citizens,
including these, “hero-swimmers”, when even at the highest levels,
officials are lying blatantly, while displaying no fear whatsoever of
any potential consequences?

What’s even more striking is that those liars are being promoted
and encouraged in the US political establishment, and they are
being allowed to occupy the highest political positions in the state,
as if we are being told:

“In lies we trust here, it is our symbol and our flag, because we are
the Empire of Lies.“

A Terrorist Endorses Hillary Clinton

A Terrorist Endorses Hillary Clinton

By Chris Ernesto
Real Independent News & Film
August 20, 2016

Days after endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, Mike Morell,
former acting director of the CIA, said the U.S. should covertly kill
Russians and Iranians in Syria, and that the U.S. should bomb Syrian
government offices, aircraft and presidential guard positions.

Here are Morell’s exact words: “I’d give (the “moderate
opposition”) the things that they need to both go after the (Syrian
President Bashar) Assad government, but also to have the Iranians
and Russians pay a little price… we need to make the Iranians pay
a price in Syria, we need to make the Russians pay a price.”

The interviewer, Charlie Rose, then asked Morell, “OK, we make
them pay a price by killing Russians, and killing Iranians?”

Morell responded, “yes, covertly. You don’t tell the world about it,
right. You don’t stand up at the Pentagon and say we did this,
right. But you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.”

Morell continued, “I want to go after those things that Assad sees
as his personal power base, right, I want to scare Assad. So I want
to go after his presidential guard. I want to bomb his offices in the
middle of the night. I want to destroy his presidential aircraft on
the ground. I want to destroy his presidential helicopters. I want
to make him think we’re coming after him.”

Isn’t that terrorism?

The FBI defines terrorism as, “the unlawful use of force or violence
against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government,
the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of
political or social objectives.”

Is a person who calls for acts of terrorism, but doesn’t
personally carry out such acts, a terrorist?

A report by Human Rights Watch details dozens of cases in which
Muslim-Americans have been convicted of terrorism-related charges
without carrying out an actual act of terrorism.

The 57-year-old Morell is the person who, “coordinated the CIA
review” of Colin Powell’s infamously bogus speech to the UN in
2003 pushing for war on Iraq, according to former CIA director
George Tenet.

Morell, who resigned from his job as a national security analyst
at CBS in order to publicly support Clinton, stated that he would
be part of Clinton’s national security team.

Morell would appear to fit right in with Clinton, who, according
to former US Army Psychological Warfare Officer Scott Bennett,
is, “a psychopathic war hawk, is obsessed with war with Russia,
is obsessed with war with Iran and she is going to do everything
she can to enable it.”

Morell joins a long list of war hawks who have endorsed Clinton,
including Leon Panetta, Robert Kagan, Richard Armitage, Madeline
Albright and other neoconservative and, “liberal interventionists”.

Yes, The System Is Rigged

Yes, The System Is Rigged

By Patrick J. Buchanan
Information Clearing House
Tuesday, August 16, 2016

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged,” Donald Trump
told voters in Ohio and Sean Hannity on Fox News.

And that hit a nerve.

“Dangerous,” “toxic,” came the recoil from the media.

Trump is threatening to, “delegitimize” the election
results of 2016.

Well, if that is what Trump is trying to do, he has no
small point.

For consider what 2016 promised and what it appears
about to deliver.

This longest of election cycles has rightly been called
the Year of the Outsider.

It was a year that saw a mighty surge of economic populism
and patriotism, a year when a 74-year-old Socialist Senator
set primaries ablaze, with mammoth crowds that dwarfed
those of Hillary Clinton.

It was the year that a non-politician, Donald Trump, swept
Republican primaries in an historic turnout, with his nearest
rival an ostracized maverick in his own Republican caucus,
Senator Ted Cruz.

More than a dozen Republican rivals, described as the strongest
GOP field since 1980, were sent packing.

This was the year Americans rose up to pull down the establishment in a peaceful storming of the American Bastille.

But if it ends with a Clintonite restoration and a ratification of
the same old Beltway policies, would that not suggest there is
something fraudulent about American democracy, something
rotten in the state?

If 2016 taught us anything, it is that if the establishment’s
hegemony is imperiled, it will come together in ferocious
solidarity — for the preservation of their perks, privileges
and power.

All the elements of that establishment — corporate, cultural,
political, media — are today issuing an ultimatum to Middle
America:

Trump is unacceptable.

Instructions are going out to Republican leaders that either they
dump Trump, or they will cease to be seen as morally fit partners
in power.

It testifies to the character of Republican elites that some are
seeking ways to carry out these instructions, though this would
mean invalidating and aborting the democratic process that
produced Trump.

But what is a repudiated establishment doing issuing orders to
anyone?

Why is it not Middle America issuing the demands, rather than
the other way around?

Specifically, the Republican electorate should tell its discredited
and rejected ruling class: If we cannot get rid of you at the ballot
box, then tell us how, peacefully and democratically, we can be
rid of you?

You want Trump out? How do we get you out?

The Czechs had their Prague Spring.

The Tunisians and Egyptians their Arab Spring.

When do we have our American Spring?

The Brits had their, “Brexit” and declared independence
of an arrogant superstate in Brussels.

How do we liberate ourselves from a Beltway superstate
that is more powerful and resistant to democratic change?

Our CIA, NGOs and National Endowment for Democracy all beaver
away for, “regime change” in faraway lands whose rulers displease
us.

How do we effect, “regime change” here at home?

Donald Trump’s success, despite the near-universal hostility of the
media, even much of the conservative media, was due in large part
to the public’s response to the issues he raised.

He called for sending illegal immigrants back home, for securing
America’s borders, for no amnesty.

He called for an America First foreign policy to keep us out of wars
that have done little but bleed and bankrupt us.

He called for an economic policy where the Americanism of the
people replaces the globalism of the transnational elites and their
K Street lobbyists and congressional water carriers.

He denounced NAFTA, and the trade deals and trade deficits with
China, and called for rejection of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

By campaign’s end, he had won the argument on trade, as Hillary
Clinton was agreeing on TPP and confessing to second thoughts on
NAFTA.

But if TPP is revived at the insistence of the oligarchs of Wall
Street, the Business Roundtable, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce
backed by conscript editorial writers for newspapers that rely on
ad dollars — what do elections really mean anymore?

And if, as the polls show we might, we get Clinton — and TPP,
and amnesty, and endless migrations of Third World peoples
who consume more tax dollars than they generate, and who
will soon swamp the Republicans’ coalition — what was 2016
all about?

Would this really be what a majority of Americans voted for
in this most exciting of presidential races?

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make
violent revolution inevitable,” said John F. Kennedy.

The 1960s and early 1970s were a time of social revolution in
America, and President Nixon, by ending the draft and ending
the Vietnam war, presided over what one columnist called the,
“Cooling of America.”

But if Hillary Clinton takes power, and continues America on
her present course, which a majority of Americans rejected in
the primaries, there is going to a bad moon rising.

And the new protesters in the streets will not be over privileged
children from Ivy League campuses.

Hillary, Trump, And War With Russia

Hillary, Trump, And War With Russia

By Fred Reed
Lew Rockwell.com
August 14, 2016

Don’t look for a walk-over. The T14 Armata, Russia’s latest tank.

You don’t want to fight this monster if you can think of a better
idea, such as not fighting it.

Russia once made large numbers of second-rate tanks.

That worm has turned.

This thing is way advanced and outguns the American M1A2,
having a 125mm smoothbore firing APFSDS long rods to the
Abrams 120mm.

As Hillary would know, that’s Armor-piercing, fin-stabilized, discarding sabot. You did know, didn’t you, Hill?

This isn’t the place for a disquisition on armor, but the below beast
is a very advanced design with unmanned turret and, well, a T34 it
isn’t.

A good reason to vote for Trump, a very good reason whatever
his other intentions, is that he does not want a war with Russia.

Hillary and her elite ventriloquists threaten just that.

Note the anti-Russian hysteria coming from her and her remoras.

Such a war would be yet another example of the utter control
of America by rich insiders.

No normal American has anything at all to gain by such a war.

And no normal American has the slightest influence over whether such a war takes place, except by voting for Trump.

The military has become entirely the plaything of unaccountable elites.

A martial principle of great wisdom says that military stupidity
comes in three grades: Ordinarily stupid; really, really, really
stupid; and fighting Russia.

Think Charles XII at Poltava, Napoleon after Borodino, Adolf,
and Kursk.

Letting dilettantes, grifters, con men, pasty Neocons, bottle-blonde ruins, and corporations decide on war is insane.

We have pseudo-masculine dwarves playing with things they do not understand.

So far as I am aware, none of these fern-bar Clausewitz’s has worn boots, been in a war, seen a war, or faces any chance of being in a war started by themselves.

They brought us Iraq, Afghanistan, and Isis, and can’t win wars against goatherders with AKs.

They are going to fight…Russia?

A point that the tofu ferocities of New York might bear in mind
is that wars seldom turn out as expected, usually with godawful
results.

We do not know what would happen in a war with Russia.

Permit me a tedious catalog to make this point. It is very
worth making.

When Washington pushed the South into the Civil War, it expected a conflict that might be over in twenty-four hours, not four years with as least 650,000 dead.

When Germany began WWI, it expected a swift lunge into Paris, not four years of hideously bloody static war followed by unconditional surrender.

When the Japanese Army pushed for attacking Pearl, it did not
foresee GIs marching in Tokyo and a couple of cities glowing at
night.

When Hitler invaded Poland, utter defeat, and occupation of
Germany was not among his war aims.

When the US invaded Vietnam, it did not expect to be outfought
and outsmarted by a bush-world country.

When Russia invaded Afghanistan it did not expect…nor when America invaded Afghanistan, nor when it attacked Iraq, nor….

Is there a pattern here?

The standard American approach to war is to underestimate the enemy, overestimate American capacities, and misunderstand the kind of war it enters.

This is particularly true when the war is a manhood ritual for
masculine inadequates–think Kristol, Podhoretz, Sanders, the
whole Neocon milk bar, and that mendacious wreck, Hillary,
who has the military grasp of a Shetland pony.

If you don’t think weak egos and perpetual adolescence have
a part in deciding policy, read up on Kaiser Wilhelm.

Now, if Washington accidentally or otherwise provoked a war with Russia in, say, the Baltics or the Ukraine, and actually used its own forces, where might this lead, given the Pentagon’s customary delusional optimism?

A very serious possibility is a humiliating American defeat.

The US has not faced a real enemy in a long time.

In that time the armed forces have been feminized and social-
justice warriorified, with countless officials having been appointed
by Obama for reasons of race and sex.

Training has been watered down to benefit girl soldiers, physical standards lowered, and the ranks of general officers filled with perfumed political princes.

Russia is right there at the Baltic borders: location, location, location.

Somebody said, “Amateurs think strategy, professionals think
logistics.” Uh-huh. The Russians are not pansies and they are
not primitive.

What would Washington do, what would New York make
Washington do, having been handed its ass in a very public
defeat?

Huge egos would be in play, the credibility of the whole
American empire.

Could little Hillary Dillary Pumpkin Pie force NATO into a general
war with Russia, or would the Neocons try to go it alone–with other
people’s lives?

Russia also has borders with Eastern Europe, which connects
to Western Europe.

Do you suppose the Europeans would think of this?

Would Washington undertake, or try to undertake, the national mobilization that would be necessary to fight Russia in its backyard?

Naval war? Nukes in desperation?

And, since Russia is not going to invade anybody unprovoked,
Washington would have to attack. See above, the three forms
of military stupidity.

The same danger exists incidentally with regard to a war
with China in the South China Sea.

The American Navy hasn’t fought a war in seventy years.

It doesn’t know how well its armament works.

The Chinese, who are not fools, have invested in weaponry specifically designed to defeat carrier battle groups.

A carrier in smoking ruins would force Washington to start a
wider war to save face, with unpredictable results.

Can you name one American, other than the elites, who has
anything to gain from a war with China?

What has any normal American, as distinct from the elites and
various lobbies, gained from any of our wars post Nine-Eleven?

Hillary and her Neocon pack have backed all of them.

It is easy to regard countries as supra-human beings
that think and take decisions and do things. '

Practically speaking, countries consist of a small number of
people, usually men, who make decisions for reasons often
selfish, pathologically aggressive, pecuniary, delusional,
misinformed, or actually psychopathic in the psychiatric sense.

For example, the invasion of Iraq, a disaster, was pushed by the
petroleum lobbies to get the oil, the arms lobbies to get contracts,
the Jewish lobbies to get bombs dropped on Israel’s enemies, the
imperialists for empire, and the congenitally combative because
that is how they think.

Do you see anything in the foregoing that would matter
to a normal American?

These do not add up to a well-conceived policy.

Considerations no better drive the desire to fight Russia
or to force it to back down.

I note, pointlessly, that probably none of America’s recent martial catastrophes would have occurred if we still had constitutional government.

How many congressmen do you think would vote for a declaration of war if they had to tell their voters that they had just launched, for no reason of importance to Americans, an attack on the homeland of a nuclear power?

There are lots of reasons not to vote for Clinton and the suppurating corruption she represents.

Not letting her owners play with matches rates high among them.

A Banana Republic

A Banana Republic

By Expotera
August 4, 2016

On August 04, 1961 the U.S. national debt was $288.9 billion dollars.

On August 04, 2016 the U.S. national debt is $19.3 trillion dollars.

On August 04, 1961 an intrinsically evil, inherently dishonest, infinitely amoral, incredibly corrupt, and insatiably murderous individual was born.

And this intrinsically evil, inherently dishonest, infinitely amoral, incredibly corrupt, and insatiably murderous individual grew up to become the 44th President of The United States of America.

Over the past 55 years, the United States of America has now taken on well over $19 trillion dollars in debt, with well over, "$15 Trillion Dollars" of this debt being taken on just over the past 15 years, and with well over, "$10 Trillion Dollars" of this amount being taken on just over these past 7 years as well.

As of today, August 04, 2016, The United States of America is
now officially, "A Banana Republic" by definition, simply because
by definition, "A Banana Republic" is, "A political science term for
politically unstable countries in Latin America whose economies
are largely dependent on exporting a limited-resource product,
e.g. bananas and it typically has stratified social classes, including
a large, impoverished working class and a ruling plutocracy of
business, political, and military elites, and this politico-economic
oligarchy controls the primary-sector productions to exploit the
country's economy" and this pretty much sums up and describes
The United States of America as of today, August 04, 2016.

So on the, "Birthday" of the intrinsically evil, inherently dishonest, infinitely amoral, incredibly corrupt, and insatiably murderous individual who grew up to become the 44th President of The United States of America, all I can say is, "Happy Banana Day" America, because in the closing and final words of Senator Bernie Sanders:

"These days the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in Equador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who's the Banana Republic now?"
