The USA is Rolling into Fascism - Rodney Shakespeare
Shakespeare is talking utter rubbish unless he is a disso and then his babblings would classify as excellent disinformation.
A fascist leader would never outsource jobs. When did Hitler ever outsource a job? Fascism/Nationalism is a political dogma that ALWAYS puts the home nation first. If the so called leaders of the USA were fascists they would never outsource a single job, it would be America first, second and last. If Shakespeare is not a disso then he is either plain ignorant or an idiot.
What we have in the USA and Britain today is Corporate Communism with China as the role model and upon which The USA is being transformed - Britain being already dead in the water.
It's time we all learned that Fascism died in 1945 or if not then certainly when Franco died later on.
Tarantino sues Florida police over strip search
Leila Tarantino was pulled over for rolling through a stop sign last year, but being caught by the cops wasn’t what surprised her. The woman has filed a lawsuit because she claims an officer “forcibly” removed her tampon during a strip search.
Earlier this year two men were executed for planting a bomb on the metro in the Belarus capital Minsk, but some believe they were forced to confess and the bomb was the work of the state security services.
The Secretary General of Interpol, Ronald K Noble, should have little to fear from the grieving mother of a dead son, shot by sentence of a Belarus court this March for his part in last year's Minsk Metro bomb - or so you might have thought.
But thanks to an extraordinarily brave campaign by bereaved parent Lyubov Kovalyova, who is regularly watched by the Belarus secret police (still called the KGB), grave doubts about the guilt of the two men convicted for the bomb have arisen.
Now the Belarus KGB is being accused of planting the bomb, rigging a show trial and torturing confessions out of the two suspects.
Noble, an American appointee, who endorsed the state investigation, is facing serious questions about his judgement.
DARPA's Blue Angel - Pentagon prepares millions of vaccines against future global flu
The Pentagon’s DARPA lab has announced a milestone, but it doesn’t involve drones or death missiles. Scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency say they’ve produced 10 million doses of an influenza vaccine in only one month’s time.
In a press release out of the agency’s office this week, scientists with DARPA say they’ve reach an important step in being able to combat a flu pandemic that might someday decimate the Earth’s population. By working with the Medicago Inc. vaccine company, the Pentagon’s cutting edge research lab says that they’ve used a massive harvest of tobacco plants to help produce a plethora of flu-fighting vaccines.
GEM stands for “GMO Eradication Movement.” It of course also refers to our beautiful planet. So to “Grow the GEM” means eradicating GMOs to beautify our world. The 11 Steps for Growing the GEM are divided among three levels of participation. An overview of the three levels for being a GEM (GMO Eradication Mover) are:
LEVEL I (ELIMINATE)
1) Learn which foods are GMO and do not buy them (unless organic). The current GM food crops are:
Corn (includes “sweet corn”)
Soy (includes lecithin)
Honey (via GMO crops’ pollen)
Cotton (including cottonseed oil)
Canola (including canola oil)
Yellow crookneck and zucchini squash,
Dairy Products (tainted with rBGH and from animals fed GM food)
Meat (all kinds, from animals fed GM food)
Salmon (the actual animal is slated to be GMO)
(Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein), TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein), xanthan gum, vanillin, sucrose, lactose, dextrose, lactic acid, maltodextrin, Vitamins A, B2, B6, B12, C, D, E, K may be from GMO.
2) Print out the list and carry it with you; memorize it if you can.
3) Check food labels for GMO ingredients; if they are not listed as organic, they are likely GMO. Don’t buy it. Exceptions are products that bear the “NON GMO Project” label.
a) Example 1: Canola is a GMO crop. If a product contains canola oil and does not specify it is organic, it is likely GMO. Don’t buy it.
b) Example 2: Soy is a GMO crop. Tofu, tempeh, and soy yogurt are all made from soy. Also check for soy in veggie burgers and veggie sausages. If it is not organic don’t buy it.
4) Buy as little commercially farmed processed food and as much organic food as possible. Processed foods are more likely to have GMOs as well as hidden GMO ingredients.
a) Example 1: Corn is a GMO crop. Corn syrup, vitamin E, citric acid, polysorbate 80 and sodium citrate all can be derived from corn, and likely from GMO corn.
b) Example 2: Commercial beef, chicken, and turkey are almost always fed GM food. Only buy organic meat. “Free Range” meat is not necessarily organic.
5) Avoid commercial restaurants. Restaurants that are not specifically organic (far and few between), often use cheap food, which is often GMO and non-organic.
LEVEL II (OUTREACH)
6) Share information about the dangers of GMO foods with everyone you can. Share with them any of myarticles, Jeffrey Smith’s video(s), or just Google it.
7) Ask grocery stores and restaurants, family and friends, not to deal in GM foods. Talk to your children’s’ food director/organizer at school. Everywhere you go, let food-related organizations and people know: NO GMO.
8.) Call or email food companies that do not specify suspect ingredients as GMO and ask if they are GMO.
a) Example 1: Soy lecithin is often GMO. Call companies that make foods with soy lecithin and ask if it is from GMO soybeans. As them to send you verification in writing by email.
b) Example 2: If a label says “sugar” it may come from sugar beets, which are a GMO crop. Call the label’s company and proceed as with lecithin example.
c) Example 3: I recently called Twinlab, Kal, and Lessaffre (makers of Red Star Yeast) companies, all manufacturers of nutritional yeast products. Only one, Kal Brand, told me they guarantee both the yeast and the culture medium for the yeast (often corn and beet, both GMO crops) to be non-GMO. I told the others I would not buy their products until they guarantee non-GMO on the label.
9) Encourage anyone you know not to use Roundup because it is integral to GM food production, much more toxic than once suspected, and buying it supports Monsanto
LEVEL III (COMMUNITY)
10) Organize rallies, protests, donate to and support organic groups, create and circulate petitions, set up information booths, and begin a public outreach to masses of people to denounce GMOs and support organics.
Additional actions: pass out GMO warning flyers, write articles, post notes at work, go to protests, Google GMO articles and videos. Host movie nights.
11) Plant that organic garden already! And get your family and community involved.
The election of the next puppet president of the “world’s only superpower” is about two and one-half months off, and what are the campaign issues? There aren’t any worthy of the name.
Romney won’t release his tax returns, despite the fact that release is a customary and expected act. Either the non-release is a strategy to suck in Democrats to make the election issue allegations that Romney is another mega-rich guy who doesn’t pay taxes, only to have the issue collapse with a late release that shows enormous taxes paid, or Romney’s tax returns, as a candidate who advocates lower taxes for the rich, don’t bear scrutiny.
What are Romney’s issues? The candidate says that his first act will be to repeal Obamacare, a program that Romney himself first enacted as governor of Massachusetts. This will cost Romney political contributions from the insurance industry, which is thankful for the 50 million new private insurance policies that Obamacare, written not by Obama but by the private insurance companies, provides at public expense. It is not to the insurance industry’s benefit to have a single payer system like other western countries.
Romney’s other issue is to blame Obama for America’s unemployment caused by the offshoring of the US economy by Republican corporate CEOs. In order to enhance their compensation packages, the Republican CEOs sent millions of America’s best jobs to India, China and elsewhere. The lower cost of labor in these offshore sites means much higher earnings, which drives up share prices for shareholders and drives up performance bonuses for management, while wrecking US employment, GDP growth and tax base and driving up the deficit in the balance of payments.
The real issues can nowhere be found in the campaigns or in the media. There is no mention of the Bush/Obama destruction of the US Constitution and its legal protections of citizens from arbitrary government power. Due process no longer exists for anyone who the executive branch suspects of being connected in any way to Washington’s chosen enemies. US citizens can be thrown into dungeons for life on suspicion alone without any evidence ever being presented to a court, and they can be executed any place on earth, along with whoever happens to be with them at the time, on suspicion alone.
Last May federal district court judge Katherine Forrest ruled that indefinite detention of US citizens is unconstitutional and issued an injunction against the Obama regime using this police state measure in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The Obama regime gave the federal judge the finger. During the week of August 6-10 the Justice (sic) Department’s Brownshirt lawyers refused to tell Judge Forrest if the Obama regime is complying with the injunction. The position of the Obama regime is: “we are above the law and do not answer to federal courts.” One would think that Romney would be all over this, but he isn’t because he wants the power himself. (http://rt.com/usa/news/ndaa-injunction-tangerine-detention-376/print/)
The Obama police state will shop around and find a federal appeals court dominated by Republican Brownshirt judges and get Judge Forrest’s ruling overturned. All those Republican federal judges we had to have to save us from liberal Democrats will now complete our deliverance to a total police state where all power rests in an unaccountable executive branch.This is what the Republican Federalist Society has wanted for years, and they are on the verge of obtaining it.
That the United States has degenerated into a police state in the short period of ten years should be the campaign issue. Who would ever have thought such a thing possible. Yet, there is no mention of the destruction of the rule of law in the name of a hoax “war on terror.”
The Bush regime created the propaganda that “they (Muslims) hate us for our freedom and democracy,” but how can Muslims hate us for what does not exist? The arbitrary unaccountable power asserted by the executive branch is totally incompatible with freedom and democracy. Yet, neither Obama nor Romney makes this an issue. And neither does the media.
There is no war on terror. There is war on countries that are not Washington’s puppet states. Unaccountable Washington is currently slaughtering thousands of Muslims in a variety of countries and is preparing Syria as its next holocaust. Washington, taking advantage of the splits between Sunnis and Shi’ites and between Islamists and secular Muslims, has organized a rebellion in Syria in order to overthrow a government that is not a puppet of Washington and Israel.
Among the foreigners streaming into Syria to overthrow the secular state in which Sunni and Shia Arabs have lived peacefully, are the Islamist extremists that Washington has squandered $6 trillion fighting for 11 years. The extremists are on Washington’s side. They want the secular Syrian government overthrown, because it is not an Islamic government.
This suits Washington’s policy, so now the taxes extracted from hard-pressed Americans are flowing to the Islamists that Americans have been fighting.
Speaking before the Council on Foreign Relations on August 8, Obama’s national security aid John Brennan defended the diversion of American taxpayers’ money to the outside forces Washington has organized, financed and provided with military weapons to overthrow the government of Syria. John Brennan said, with a straight face, that the Obama administration is careful that the financial and military aid does not go to the rebels affiliated with al Qaeda. Brennan has to make this claim, because the Obama regime, being in cahoots with al Qaeda, is in violation of its own NDAA and is subject to arrest and indefinite detention.
Does anyone believe that Washington, determined to overthrow the Syrian government, is refusing to arm the most effective part of the fighting force that is involved? Is there anyone so naive not to know that military aid to “rebels” is fungible?
Having suffered damage to its superpower reputation by being fought to a standoff by a few thousand al Qaeda in Iraq and Afghanistan, Washington learned that the trick was to employ al Qaeda not as an enemy but as an ally.
The test case was in Libya, where the US-al Qaeda alliance worked to overthrow the Libyan government. The advantage for Washington is that Libya is now beset by warring factions and is no longer a country that could get in Washington’s way.
Libya is the roadmap for Syria.
Syria made its mistake when it thought it could pacify Washington by taking Washington’s side in the first war against Iraq, thus confirming for Washington that Arabs are incapable of sticking together and thus are an easy mark to be overthrown.
If Syria falls, Washington will have murdered yet another nation. But this is not a part of the presidential debate. Both candidates agree that Washington should prevail in establishing a puppet state in Syria. Even Amnesty International has been suborned and lends its influence to the demonization of the Syrian government. Only the US is moral, indispensable, virtuous, humane, a light upon mankind. By definition, any opponent chosen by Washington is debauched, evil, sinful, a country that suppresses dissent and tortures its opponents, something Washington would never do, being, of course, the “light unto the world.”
Unlike the 1957 plot by British Prime Minister Harald Macmillan and US President Dwight Eisenhower to foment an “uprising” in Syria and assassinate the Syrian leadership (see http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=32254), the Obama administration cloaks its intervention in humanitarian language, as do the rebels while they murder and execute civilians who support the Assad government. The presstitute western media describes the mayhem and murder as “humanitarian intervention,” and the brainwashed western public reposes in its moral superiority.
After Syria is destroyed, the last independent country in the region is Iran. Iran has also been weakened, not by Washington’s embargo, an act of war in itself, but by Washington’s financing of the “Green Revolution.” Iran now has a fifth column within itself.
Iran, the second oldest country after China, is now surrounded by 40 or more US military bases and is confronted by four US fleets in its own Persian Gulf.
There is a large number of nominal Muslims interested only in money and power who are working with Washington to overthrow the Syrian and Iranian governments.
If Iran falls, with both Russia and China surrounded by US missiles and military bases, the world as we know it will enter its final stage. Will Russia and China, having sacrificed all their buffers without a fight, surrender and be content to be ruled by puppet governments, or will they resist?
Don’t expect the packaged political campaign of the next couple of months to deal with any significant issue. Americans are oblivious of their fate, and so apparently is the rest of the world.
The selection of the next president of the US will depend on one thing alone–which of the two candidates financed by the ruling private oligarchy has the most effective propaganda.
Whether you vote Republican or Democrat, the oligarchs will win.
A prominent political analyst says if the Zionist-led world bullies, the USA, Israel and the UK continue imposing sanctions on a law-abiding country like Iran, then other countries should stop trading with them.
“Indeed, it’s time to give the bullies of this world a taste of their own medicine. If sanctions are implemented against a country which (totally unlike Israel and the USA- is behaving lawfully), then those who implement the sanctions must have sanctions implemented against them," wrote Professor of Binary Economics and co-founder of the Global Justice Movement, Rodney Shakespeare in an article published on Press TV website on Thursday.
“Those who sanction must themselves be sanctioned. That means sanctions against the USA, Israel and the UK,” the analyst reiterated.
He went on to write that it should not be thought that putting such sanctions into practice is impossible as even now throughout the world, “countries are quietly (and not so quietly) making new regional agreements and arrangements, all of which are essentially aimed at breaking the economic and political power of the West,” which is taking place for the simple reason that the West, particularly when it is reflective of “Zionist aggressions” is becoming ever more hated universally.
“Shakespeare deplored the totally “aggressive, expansionist” nature of the Zionist-controlled US that wants to impose its severe anti-Iran sanctions on all other countries, despite every possible evidence to contradict US claims of Tehran pursuing a military aspect in its peaceful nuclear energy program.”
The USA demands absolute obedience from all countries across the world, he noted, “It does not matter if all sixteen of the USA’s intelligence agencies clear Iran of making a bomb (as do MI6 and Israel’s Mossad).... It does not matter if those sanctions wreck a country’s economy because; such is its hatred of a modern, rapidly developing and successful Iran (which is a complete contrast to the corrupt feudalisms of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the Gulf Sheikdoms).”
Shakespeare’s comments come against the backdrop of US threats to invalidate the license of Britain’s Standard Chartered Bank, for trading with Iran.
The columnist highly praised Standard Chartered Bank’s finance director, Richard Meddings, for his well-spoken reply to US threats regarding the banks’ dealings with Iran.
He quoted Meddings who said “You (swearword) Americans. Who are you to tell us, the rest of the world, that we’re not going to deal with Iranians?”
“Let Richard Meddings be remembered, the author suggested as courageous people stand up to demand that henceforth ‘those who sanction themselves be sanctioned.’ ”
This would only be a matter of time, he maintained, “before those who arrogantly sanction others find that the boot is now on the other foot” as they are themselves sanctioned, if countries refrain from using the American dollar in their business transactions, if the Shanghai Co-operation Organization’s past patterns are broken with new economic arrangements and if South American countries stand up against exploitation.
