Obama Didn't Get Memo re False Flag Anti-Semitism Leaflet?

Let’s address just one more of the latest US foreign policy fresh hells before it, too, disappears into the American citizenry’s memory hole among so many other Orwellian scenarios from both Bush and Obama regimes.

One more willful, false flag for propaganda and provocation operation, this time on the part of the illegitimate junta in Ukraine and the western imperialism addicts going for “full spectrum dominance”, both groups willing to chance a nuclear war with Russia. Yes, that is right! Read below the fold...

Neo-Nazi Thug-Officials Rough Up National Ukrainian TV Head

According to Johannes Stern in “Svoboda thugs attack head of Ukrainian national television” there is a fascist “reign of terror” happening on the streets of Kiev thanks to the Western-backed coup at the end of last month.

A shocking YouTube video [click here to see Stern article with video] shows what happens when Neo-Nazis are put in charge of Ukrainian security/enforcement duties with the generous backing of the US and EU. (Sophisticated NATO weaponry still to come to these neo-Nazis). Read below the fold...

The Plight of the Ukrainian People

According to Julie Hyland in “What the Western-backed regime is planning for Ukrainian workers” the new regime which came to power in the guise of a “democratic revolution” is made up of “former bankers, fascists and oligarchs” and is preparing “draconian austerity measures” for the Ukrainian people.

Ukraine [W]reckoning: Disaster Capitalism, Nazism, Media Propaganda

So after an ugly 25-year Middle Eastern trail of blood and tears, dead or maimed bodies, massive displacement and devastation, the US government, its military, its corporate media and its predatory fellow country flunkies, drifting toward fascism as much as the US is, are defying international law, yet again, all in the name of “freedom.”

And, unfrigginbelievably getting away with it. Read below the fold...

Ukraine Regime Change-Faster Than A Speeding (Sniper) Bullet

What constitutes commitment of a citizen to a nation? Let’s say this particular United States nation.

Blind or myopic or passionate loyalty? Indifference to, numbness of or a profound lack of curiosity in whatever is going on with our tax dollars in the powerful hands of our elected representatives and their networks? Read below the fold...

Robert Parry: Latest US Govt/Media Demonization Game re Ukraine

Robert Parry writes in “Cheering a ‘Democratic’ Coup in Ukraine”:

There was always a measure of hypocrisy but Official Washington used to at least pretend to stand for “democracy,” rather than taking such obvious pleasure in destabilizing elected governments, encouraging riots, overturning constitutional systems and then praising violent putsches.

‘Regime Change’ Solidarity with Neo-Nazis of Ukraine! Hello???

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev last Monday:

“Frankly, the legitimacy of many governmental bodies is in doubt there,” ... “Treating masked men armed with Kalashnikov rifles, who are now circling Kiev, as a government – we would find it difficult working with such a government.”

Lesser Evil Dems Faux-Fight for Near-Starvation Minimum Wage

Thread: 

Don’t hold your breath about a minimum wage increase from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour. But even if it did happen, what would it really mean for a struggling American working -- or, formerly working -- class? Read below the fold...

William Rivers Pitt: Obama/Congress & a 10-Deployment, Maimed Vet

I came across an article by William Rivers Pitt entitled “The Sugar Makes the Poison Taste Sweet”. I am posting a powerful excerpt from it in which Pitt lets his anger rip about the shameless exploitation of a 10-deployment, maimed vet by Obama at the end of his 2014 State of the Union Address.

Does the Debt Ceiling Have to Be Raised?

Lately, the word out of Washington, DC from the plugged in people is that there will be no debt ceiling crisis coming up before the election. Politico says so, and so does the National Journal. MSNBC also agrees.

But not so fast, says the Washington Post, echoing the Wall Street Journal provided the House Republicans can agree on “. . . an extortion demand.” If they can, then we wll have another debt ceiling crisis.

Here's a statement from Dave Johnson at the Center for the American Future (CAF) characterizing the possible crisis from a “progressive” point of view. Read below the fold...

Obama, the Liar, Spins the SOTU

I didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union address on television tonight. My stomach was not strong enough. (Reminiscent of how Bush’s TV appearances also induced nausea in me.)

Just a little while ago I abandoned the balance of my cappuccino in an upper East Side diner because Obama’s voice from a wall TV screen in the back ambushed me. The manager/owner hustled over to the front cash register to process my check.

“I came out tonight to ESCAPE Obama!” I scolded

He wagged a finger in my face angrily. “Hey, I’m just watching to see his nose grow!” Read below the fold...

Whitewash Continues of NSA Criminality

I caught some of Lawrence O’Donnell’s show yesterday in which O’Donnell glibly shilled for the Obama administration against the findings of federal Judge Leon. O’Donnell also handily soft-balled questions to one of Obama’s NSA reform panelists in which the two found common cause in lauding the Obama administration for its “lesser evil” spy program. Do they not recall it took Edward Snowden to expose it???? Read below the fold...

Say-Anything Obama’s Pretend NSA Reform

So Manning sacrificed so much to bring to the proverbial “bewildered herd” of us American citizens abundant evidence of war criminality. What happened? US war criminality gallops on. After all, we live under the supposedly” lesser evil” Dem Obama’s administration where he enjoys some kind of blank check to perpetrate evil and be celebrated for his governance's not being as bad as Bush’s or McCain’s or Hitler’s or fill in a name would be.

Right! Read below the fold...
