What should we expect of Obama’s second term?

NOVANEWS
Obama vs RomneyBy Lawrence Davidson

Barack Obama won re-election on 6 November 2012. And what was the left’s reaction?

“So what?” Well, we are spared four years of Mitt Romney. Again, “so what? They are both two peas from the same pod.”

Well maybe, but even peas can vary. Here are some positive differences to consider. These will be followed by some negative similarities to Romney and his conservative advisers. We will start with the bright side:

…Romney, by his own admission, can’t tell the difference between US interests and those of racist Israel. 

Positives

  • In terms of probabilities, under Obama the US is less likely to find itself at war with Iran then would be the case with Romney. On such issues as war in the Middle East, Obama seems to be able to think relatively independently while Romney, by his own admission, can’t tell the difference between US interests and those of racist Israel.
  • Obama took a sensible attitude toward the Arab Spring uprising except, of course, in Bahrain where his administration’s support for the monarchy was lamentable, to say the least. Romney’s reaction would have been to ring up Netanyahu and ask him what to do.
  • On issues of women’s rights, gay rights, environmental and educational concerns, an Obama administration is much preferable to a Romney one.
  • If there are Supreme Court vacancies in the next four years we are much less likely to have extreme conservatives nominated than would have been the case under Mitt Romney.
  • Obama dropped George W. Bush’s torture directive. Given Mitt Romney’s neoconservative advisers, he might well have been tempted to reinstate it.

These are only some of the positive things and they are far from unimportant. Nonetheless, Obama has a definite dark side that sometimes echoes the conservative Republican mindset. For instance:

Negatives

  • Barack Obama is an African American with, apparently, only selective concern for civil liberties. He employs another African American, Eric Holder, with similar blind spots. Holder heads up the FBI and has allowed that agency to entrap Americans mostly of yet another minority group, in this case Moslems, in alleged terrorist activities which, without the FBI’s scheming, would almost certainly never have been carried out.
  • Throughout his first term Obama went after “illegal aliens”, deporting them in high numbers, and only modified this policy as the election neared. He cannot be trusted on this front.

 

…Obama has continued to enforce President Bush’s criminal policies, many of which are institutionalized in the Patriot Act.

 

  • Obama has continued to enforce President Bush’s criminal policies, many of which are institutionalized in the Patriot Act. These include unconstitutional practices such as indefinite detention and warrantless eavesdropping.
  • And while Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East probably will not lead to the war so ardently desired by Romney’s buddy, Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, he is still willing to kill innocent people with drones and harm even more with draconian sanctions.

Romney’s 57,591,058

The election itself was anything but reassuring. Take a look at the map showing who won which states and there is a scary amount of red (how the media came up with the colour red for Republican states only one generation after the demise of Russian communism is beyond me!). The only saving grace is that these are (with the exception of Texas) the less populous states. Nonetheless, according to thePhiladelphia Inquirer’s final election figures (8 November 2012, page A12) , some 57,591,058 American voters cast their ballots for Romney – a man who is the obvious incarnation of the dwarf chameleon – a subgroup of lizards that are particularly adept at “adjusting their colours for camouflage in accordance with the vision of species” confronting them. This number includes 62 per cent of voting white men and, surprisingly, 56 per cent of voting white women. Were most of these folks just motivated by a desire to vote against Obama rather than for Romney? Or were they good hypnotic subjects who were easily mesmerized by expertly choreographed flip-flopping?

After the victory

After his victory the re-elected president gave a “lets all come together” speech that, under present circumstances, is embarrassing to listen to. Having been crudely defamed and ridiculed for months on end, one would like to see from Obama a public hint, a mere glint, of annoyance with the Republicans. Those feelings would be human and proper. However, according to Obama, though some of us might disagree “fiercely”, the insulting tone taken toward him was just a manifestation of “noisy and messy” democracy. In President Obama’s estimation, despite the political mud slinging, we all want the same kind of America. Somehow I don’t think so. The Tea Party Republicans and neoconservative militarists do not want the same sort of American that (we sincerely hope) Obama does. It is a pretty safe bet that even John A. Boehner, the Speaker of the Republican-controlled House, does not want the same America as Obama.

 

…in his heart of hearts he [Obama]  is a compromiser. He will compromise with just about anyone on just about anything. Given the political structure within which he lives, that means he will compromise with rabid Republicans, Zionists and neoconservatives… Actually, the probable exception to this list are American progressives.

 

Nonetheless, on victory night Obama told his supporters: “I just spoke with Governor Romney and … I also look forward to sitting down with [him] to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward.” This is not just a pro forma offer. I am convinced that Obama wants to do exactly as he says. For in his heart of hearts he is a compromiser. He will compromise with just about anyone on just about anything. Given the political structure within which he lives, that means he will compromise with rabid Republicans, Zionists and neoconservatives – if they will only “see reason” and compromise with him. Actually, the probable exception to this list are American progressives. Obama and his advisers probably feel that progressives are just a fringe group who will support the Democrats anyway and so they don’t have to take their goals and values into consideration.

Thus, all the early indicators are that the second term Obama will be a lot like the first term one. Yet there are so many of his supporters who are sure this will not be the case. They swallow whole that teasing line “the best is yet to come”. As one 2012 supporter said, “things are going to be different in Washington now that Obama proved he has the majority of Americans on his side.” I thought he had already proved that in 2008.

Conclusion

Well, all right, for those who count on the “real progressively-inclined” Barack Obama showing up for his second term, here are a number of things the president can do to prove that things will be different. I take many of the following points from Juan Cole’s recent column Top ten wish list for President Obama”.

  • Obama can propose and fight hard for legislation that will overturn the horrible “Citizens United” law that, among other things, reinforced the farce that corporations are really people and Super PACs [Political Action Committees] somehow have the right to try to buy elections. And, simultaneously, the “real” Obama can expend some political capital pushing hard for meaningful campaign finance reform.
  • Obama can push for strong economic regulation, particularly for the banking and financial sectors of the economy.
  • He can fight to strengthen union rights both in the public and private sectors.
  • He can fight for legislation that will make illegal conservative efforts to restrict the franchise through such gambits as required picture IDs.
  • The president can reshape the priorities of the FBI and other national law-enforcement agencies, moving them away from enforcing the unconstitutional Patriotic Act; away from the manufacture of terrorist schemes in order to entrap otherwise innocent people; and away from the warrantless surveillance of thousands of Americans. In other words, the second-term Obama should show himself publicly in opposition to Bush-era crimes dressed up as laws.
  • Finally, specific to the Middle East, Barack Obama can: (a) get out of the way of Palestinian efforts to achieve more meaningful membership status at the UN and( b) he can pardon the Holy Land Foundation leaders who have been unfairly convicted of supporting terrorism in one of the 21st century’s most outrageous miscarriages of justice.

Will the Barrack Obama who shows up for the second term fight for any of these things? My own guess is that what efforts there are in these directions will be lukewarm at best. They will be watered down by incessant compromise. Not because that is the way politics must be played (certainly the Republicans haven’t met anyone half way this side of the Tea Party), but because that is the way the real Barack Obama wants to play politics.

The Role of Anti-Establishment “Conspiracy Theories”

NOVANEWS
Global Research

 

In recent years, populist explanations for world events have become common and often taken the form of anti-establishment conspiracy theories. The contradiction between how people believe the world should be, according to the mainstream propaganda pertaining to liberty and democracy, and how it is in this time of crisis leads people to search for easily digestible answers.

It’s easy for conspiracy theorists to play on people’s fears and prejudices and to point fingers at certain groups. In the past, it has been ‘the Jews’, ‘the Irish’, ‘the blacks’, ‘the Poles’ or some other easily identifiable target that was blamed for society’s ills. Resorting to selective interpretations of history or some simplistic Hollywood-esque inspired political or sci-fi narrative where giant reptiles are taking over the planet can be quite seductive, particularly for ‘right-leaning’ sections of the population who never had any truck with socialism and probably once believed in the ‘free market’ and capitalist liberal democracy but now have trouble in fathoming out why it has all gone wrong.

Conspiracy theories of different kinds have been found on both the left and the right of the political spectrum over the decades. While the right saw reds under the bed everywhere, the left regarded every negative event as a consequence of capitalism – what sociologists call ‘left functionalism’.

Much of the left, however, possesses an analysis based on a sound understanding of how capitalism works and developed over time. David Harvey’s assessment of the current crisis (1) uses concepts of capital over accumulation, production outsourcing, wage and demand depression and credit access to explain why we are where we happen to be right now. John Foster (2) discusses the nature of the current crisis in similar terms.

The advocates of populist conspiracy theories seek to explain everything in terms of secret societies and codes, Zionism, ‘communism’ or the hand of ‘Rothschild’. Of course, families like the Rothschilds and Rockefellers and groups like Bilderberg exist and do hold great power. That much is not in dispute. However, the nature of the dynamics of power is. Groups or think tanks like Bilderberg, Brookings Institute, Trilateral Commission, Chatham House, Council on Foreign Relations, RAND Corporation and so on are where capitalism’s state-corporate hegemons, including the rich families mentioned above, meet to discuss, devise policies and manage capitalism.

Radical critiques of society have often focused on the underlying logic and processes of capital accumulation and capitalist economic crises as well as capitalism’s inherent contradictions. An analysis of the historical antecedents of modernity according to scholarly analysis has also been prevalent. Today, it is popular to assert that the members of some shadowy group have been in charge all this time – the Illuminati, often used as a metaphor for ‘the Jews’.

The rise of such explanations are understandable in a complex world, where the ordinary person feels utterly powerless, confused and craves easy answers. Little surprise then that events and crises are said to be the work of some sinister ‘Illuminati’, an explanation which tends to steer clear of any genuine analysis of capitalism.

In the West, jobs are being outsourced, wages are falling and unemployment rising. As the market becomes saturated with goods and demand is unable to mop up supply, firms go bust. There is a shift towards powerful monopoly capitalism, while citizens and workers experience increasing powerlessness and immiseration. And to seek out new profits, imperialist ventures abroad become the norm. State-corporate monopoly capitalism and imperialist intent are not part of a ‘New World Order’ but are part of a world in which the few benefit at the expense of the many and that has been in the making ever since Britain became the first industrial nation and capitalism emerged.

But what we now have isn’t free market capitalism, some might say. The notion of the free market has always been a myth. It’s always been controlled and manipulated. It’s never been ‘free’. And we are now witnessing advanced capitalism in all its gore.

Capitalism has inherent contradictions. All was never intended to be fine. Remember the slogan to end poverty by 2020 (or whatever the date was)? Capitalism thrives on poverty. It’s integral to the system. That’s why it is rampant in the West and much more so in the cheap labour economies of the ‘developing world’. The increasing concentration of power, ownership and wealth and the rising impoverishment of the masses is one of capitalism’s greatest contradictions. It’s not some kind of conspiracy to keep the masses in poverty or in fear of falling into it. It’s built in to capitalism.

But many do not refer Marx, Engels, Lenin or Trotsky to gain an understanding of the processes of dialectic materialism and capitalism. They and their theories are regarded as being part of the Zionist conspiracy. If socialism and communism are the creation of Zionism, which supposedly exerts so much control over the US and Britain, strange then that the secret services of both the US and Britain spent so much time and energy on infiltrating, deradicalising and subverting the left (3).

While the late Antony C Sutton (sometimes regarded as the father of modern conspiracy theories) provides food for thought in his writings and research (4), conspiracy theories tend to provide limited insight into the dynamics of power and oppression in the 21st century.

However imperfect the work of people like Robert Brenner (5) and Barrington Moore (6) may have been, their research was based on broad comparative sociological analysis of the cultural, historical, agrarian and economic factors that led to the rise of capitalism, fascism and communism in various societies. In the absence of this, however, prominent proponents of conspiracy theories in the US and Britain make crude assumptions about such phenomena comprising part of an Illuminati plot, which play on the prejudices and fears of ordinary people, who in turn latch on to the explanation offered as a proxy for the underlying causes of their powerlessness and frustrations.

Why bother having an informed understanding of the dynamics of the modern world based on rigorous research? Much easier to watch a few YouTube clips about some secret, manipulative elite or even amphibians from outer space with an agenda to control the world.

Many conspiracy theorists have indeed actually been quite informative on how the banking system works and how bankers conspire to control policies by keeping governments in permanent debt. They have also highlighted glaring flaws in official accounts of 9/11. They have rightly pinpointed what the mainstream misses out of its narratives and have raised issues that many on the left had tended to ignore or gave scant attention to. But such useful insights then become wrapped up in theories that too often appear to be based on flights of fancy.

There is no doubting that people can and do conspire to shape events. Not everything can be explained by structures where individual motive is eradicated. For example, corporations conspire to produce price cartels, media barons conspire to dominate and state-corporate interests embark on military jaunts to control markets and resources. And yes, bankers conspire to restrict credit for various reasons. But this has to be placed within the wider context of Empire and capitalism.

In capitalism, the compulsion to compete, dominate and pursue profit casts long shadows over virtually every social and cultural institution, from government and politics to education, law, agriculture and entertainment.

Conspiracy theorists and their followers may well appreciate aspects of this, but merely speculate about the intentions of and actions of groups of people without addressing how capitalism shapes any of it.

In finishing it is interesting to recall that not everything in life can be neatly explained away, as the philosopher Karl Popper once famously argued. It can be easy for conspiracy theories to overlook the pervasive unintended consequences of political and social action and assume that all consequences must have been intended. Unpredictability abounds. And that’s something some on the left may care to occasionally chew over too.

Chemtrails. The Realities of Geoengineering and Weather Modification

NOVANEWS
Global Research

Over the past decade evidence has increasingly emerged indicating how geoengineering and weather modification programs designed to inflict major impacts on the atmosphere and environment are fully operational.

Despite such developments the CO2-specific anthropogenic theory of global warming touted by foundation-funded environmental groups and public relations dominates much of popular discourse and the prevailing worldview of intellectuals.

By drawing attention away from actually existing efforts of atmospheric experimentation and manipulation, such coordinated efforts are complicit in the impending environmental catastrophe they profess to be rallying against. The repeated claim of CO2-driven climate change without acknowledgment of geoengineering-related environmental intervention is a severe perversion of both meaningful scientific inquiry and public opinion with overwhelming implications for all life on earth.

“While scientists continue research into any global climatic effects of greenhouse gases, we ought to study ways to offset any possible ill effects. Injecting sunlight-scattering particles into the stratosphere appears to be a promising approach. Why not do that?”—Edward Teller[1]

“To accept opinions in their terms is to gain the good solid feeling of being correct without having to think. “—C. Wright Mills[2]

For anyone who looks up in the sky every so often while fostering some recollection of what a sunny day used to resemble, the reality of geoengineering—what are often referred to as “chemtrails”—can no longer be easily dismissed. For over a decade military and private jet aircraft have been spraying our skies with what numerous independent researchers, journalists, and activists observe to be an admixture of aluminum, barium, strontium, and other dangerous heavy metals. Such substances distributed into the atmosphere as microscopic subparticulates eventually descend to earth where they are breathed by living things and absorbed by the soil and plant life.

“A glimpse into new death technologies” intended to modify weather and the environment “is in legislation introduced by Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich,” investigative writer Amy Worthington wrote almost a decade ago. Kucinich’s

unsuccessful Space Preservation Act of 2001 was intended to ban space deployment of:

*electronic, psychotronic and information weaponry
*high altitude ultra low frequency weapons
*plasma, electromagnetic, sonic and ultrasonic weapons
*laser weapons
*strategic, theater, tactical or extraterrestrial weapons
*chemical biological, environmental climate or tectonic weapons
*chemtrails (this term was stricken from a later version, suggesting duress)

In their quest to remain top dog in the kill chain, the purveyors of perpetual war have deliberately dimmed earth’s life-giving sunlight, and reduced atmospheric visibility with lung-clogging particulates and polymers. This ecological terrorism has severely compromised public health, according to thousands of testimonials.[3]

A recently discovered NASA document from 1966 indicates that weather modification efforts have been underway since the 1940s. “There is … great motivation to develop effective countermeasures against the destructive measures of weather,” the paper observes,

and, conversely, enhance the beneficial aspects. The financial and other benefits to human welfare of being able to modify weather to augment water supplies, reduce lightening, suppress hail, mitigate tornados, and inhibit the full development of hurricanes would be very great.[4]

According to the report, in 1964 the National Science Foundation formed a Special Commission on Weather Modification. Thereafter, weather weapons in the form of cloud seeding were used to flood North Vietnamese supply lines during the Vietnam War.[5] More recent documentation points to private and government bodies’ active pursuit of weather modification, including the US Department of Homeland Security’s Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program.[6] And in mid-2012 scientists proposed a $5 billion geoengineering plan to potentially unleash one million tons of particulates in the upper atmosphere each year to “cut world greenhouse gas emissions.”[7]

Since this is such an open program—taking place in plain sight directly over our heads—why is there almost complete silence about it in academic circles as well as mainstream and “alternative” progressive media outlets, particularly if one is to conclude that academe and the press are where disinterested inquiry and the dissemination of information and ideas in the public interest are allegedly anticipated and guaranteed? Indeed, geoengineering and weather manipulation are “a scientific taboo,” Michel Chossudovsky points out.

The possibility of climatic or environmental manipulations as part of a military and intelligence agenda, while tacitly acknowledged, is never considered as relevant. Military analysts are mute on the subject. Meteorologists are not investigating the matter, and environmentalists are strung on global warming and the Kyoto protocol.[8]

In this way such a condition is also attributable to the deleterious effect of intellectual disengagement and naivete originating within scholarly and journalistic communities that, combined with well-funded public relations efforts promoting the CO2-specific theory of global warming, eventually compromises the reasoning and communicative capacities of the broader public sphere.

The Trouble with Normal

When individuals share certain understandings and rationalities about themselves, their profession, and the broader society and culture, as is the overwhelming case in academe or journalism, they possess a binding ideology, and thereby a basis where certain perceptions and beliefs may become readily embraced or dismissed. Concepts inimical to such firm convictions are verboten. Moreover, the heavy reliance on foundation funding combined with rigid hiring and peer review processes ensure that ideas and research challenge this institutional matrix and the broader order of things in only playful and generally non-threatening ways.

Speaking as someone who works in the academy, the fear of being rejected as a crackpot also plays a large role in self-censorship. I never wholly dismissed the chemtrail phenomenon or the reports of chemtrail activists. Yet the very idea of such a nefarious program was so disturbing and surreal that several years ago I half-heartedly sought out a variety of what appeared to be conflicting information of both chemtrail activists and skeptics via online sources to placate and thereby suppress my concerns. After all, I thought, if there was anything to such claims they would be interrogated and ferreted out by university research itself and the independent progressive-left news media and intelligentsia that I relied on so heavily to form my worldview. The real problem, clearly articulated by United Nations agencies, Noble laureates and from seemingly every corner of our mediated environments is the abundance of carbon dioxide and the threat it poses in the form of melting glaciers, rising sea levels, and severe weather events.

Not until 2010, when I happened across the documentary What in the World Are They Spraying?(WITWATS) did I become more fully convinced that coordinated geoengineering programs not only exist, but that they are far-reaching in scope and have major implications for life on earth. Perhaps alongside the alleged scourge of CO2-induced global warming, geoengineering programs that are purportedly in place to “curb” such processes actually pose the greatest threat to humanity and the environment. Like Monsanto, which seeks to control all facets of agriculture and thus our physiological makeup, the US military’s self-admitted objective is to “control the weather” through atmospheric manipulation by 2025.[9]

Living in a tropical climate and spending much of the time outdoors I eventually became something of a novel “skywatcher.” Upon closer observance it has become increasingly difficult to ignore the activity of numerous high altitude aircraft leaving plumes that over the course of several hours expand and coalesce to make massive cloudlike formations that could be easily mistaken for overcast above sometimes naturally-occurring cumulus clouds. I recognized how throughout most of the year this was an almost daily phenomenon initiated by planes with sometimes bizarre and inconsistent flight paths.

When I contacted to Federal Aviation Administration in Fort Lauderdale on a day with high aerial activity of this nature, I was consoled by an overly polite FAA agent that the trails were merely “water vapor,” and that dispersal of any substances several miles overhead would have but negligible effects at ground level. While it is true that jet engines can briefly produce plumes akin to cirrus clouds resulting from the exhaust process, the prevalence of this activity once I became aware of it struck me as highly unusual, and geoengineering activists contend that the inexplicable and often dangerous admixture of microscopic heavy metal particulates now common in our air—particularly aluminum—originate in the persistent contrails. A variety of air samples, most recently by activists at losangelesskywatch.com, confirm this phenomenon.[10]

In late 2011 my six year old daughter had a long-running respiratory ailment which prompted me to send off a small sample of her hair for lab analysis. The results indicated a high level of aluminum.[11] This was disturbing especially given that she had received an abbreviated vaccine regimen, drank water run from a state-of-the-art reverse osmosis filter, and ate only organic food. Her pediatrician expressed some astonishment, asking whether we use aluminum cookware. Apart from this he could offer no explanations and merely prescribed a popular antibiotic for the cough. While there may have been no correlation between the symptoms, it seemed as if the often obscure and bizarre government projects pointed to by “conspiracy theorists” had now struck home in a most intimate way.

It was around this time that I proposed to my department chair we invite WITWATS co-director Michael Murphy to screen his film and give a public talk on campus. Earlier that year a colleague hosted De Franklin Lopez, the director of EndCiv, a provocative documentary profiling the ideas of radical environmental activist and writer Erick Jensen that compares CO2-producing activities with the severest forms of colonial exploitation and Nazi war crimes while advocating violence and vandalism to save the earth. The screening was well-attended by faculty and graduate students.

At the time our department also included on faculty a talented documentary filmmaker whose work has become a platform for proselytizing on anthropogenic global warming and the many lifestyle changes necessary to thwart it. I took for granted that the university was a place where a variety of ideas, however controversial, could be presented, scrutinized, and pondered. However, after emailing the WITWATS YouTube link to my superior I was told in no uncertain terms, “That’s far right propaganda.”

Following a lengthy and good-natured exchange (which included an apology) there was no moral or monetary support forthcoming, which prevented me from approaching other university-related funding sources. Aided by Murphy’s honest willingness to forego an honorarium, I helped to support his campus visit to speak to one of my classes and present the film to the broader public. The screenings and question and answer sessions were very well-received by the students especially, all of whom can detect baloney a mile or two away. Yet despite publicity for the screening and personal invitations to colleagues I found it instructive that none were in attendance.

The story provides a microcosmic demonstration of the limited parameters for the exchange of information and ideas, that are at least as constrictive in the academy—which asserts a license on what constitutes truth and knowledge—as they are in the broader public sphere that is typically policed by ideas and assumptions that have legitimacy and rootedness in academic circles. Along these lines, within mainstream and specifically progressive media the hypothesized ecological dangers of CO2 have become the default line of reasoning for environmental issues. And, as public discourse in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy suggests, such notions overwhelmingly constitute the precognitive conditions and informational frames through which “extreme weather” events are interpreted.

The CO2 Noise Machine

A significant portion of the underlying research and public relations maneuvers of conventional environmental groups alleging CO2’s baneful and poisonous nature are funded almost entirely by major philanthropic foundations, and this goes a long way in drowning out other arguably more clear-cut and well-documented explanations of weather events, above all geoengineering and weather modification programs.

A foremost reason for the CO2 climate change theory’s endurance is the perceived legitimacy of its proponents, a widescale uncritical acceptance of its assumptions by mainstream and purportedly “alternative/progressive” media figures and outlets, and a limited understanding of the dubious science often based on drastically tortured and opaquely-constructed measurements and data. That a minority of climate scientists and seemingly impartial United Nations entities such as the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have apparently managed to convince a wide swath of opinion leaders and policy makers that the atmosphere is heating up because of genuinely miniscule increases in carbon dioxide is a feat that takes substantial resources and coordination.[12]

A passage from “economic hitman” John Perkins’ second semiautobiographical book provides an illustrative example how the CO2 theory of climate change becomes a deep-seated component of an ostensibly well-informed individual’s outlook and belief system.

I checked the clock on the bookcase and, aware that I had dallied too long, headed for the shower. As I passed the radio I flicked it on the local NPR station … Then suddenly the words of the radio announcer caught my attention.

“Within less than a hundred years,” she said, “all the maple trees—and the fall foliage—will be gone from Massachusetts. According to a recent scientific study, global warming will make our climate here similar to North Carolina’s. So” she sighed, “enjoy this year’s display. We may not have many more like it.” I stood there for a moment staring through the bathroom window. Outside, the old red maple next to the house bowed in the wind, its branches scrapping against the wall. The familiar sound now seemed foreboding, a death rattle. I felt absolutely devastated.[13]

Scratching the veneer of some of the major climate change movers and shakers one finds a very well-financed assemblage of entities with major philanthropic foundation ties. Indeed, the Rockefeller Foundations alone are major players behind the anthropogenic global warming “activism” and propaganda. For example, in 2009 the Rockefeller Family Foundation gave $3,500,000 to Grace Communications Fund, an organization that “builds partnerships and develops innovative media strategies that increase public awareness of the relationships among food, water, and energy systems.” Also in 2009 Rockefeller gave $775,000 to the Natural Resource Defense Council, whose foremost agenda is “curbing global warming” and “creating a clean energy future.” Another $650,000 was channeled to the World Wildlife Federation, $350,000 to the Center for Climate Strategies, and $200,000 to the Sierra Club.[14]

As bizarre as it may seem, such organizations are funded to such a degree because of their express intent on austerity and even depopulation programs. Toward this end they speak in one powerful voice that climate change is caused by the CO2-specific consumptive practices of human beings. Curiously, however, these extremely well-funded groups completely ignore actually existing or impending environmental upheavals brought about by geoengineering, dangerously designed nuclear power plants, the wanton disbursal of depleted uranium, and the proliferation of genetically modified organisms throughout the food supply.

A leading mouthpiece of the CO2 global warming hysteria is science author and journalist Bill McKibben, who oversees the popular 350.org publicity outlet. Through this effort McKibben has succeeded in convincing young and old alike to draw attention to the “scientific” assertion that atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are advancing from the low 300s to 400 parts per million of overall atmospheric gases—an ominous .01 percent—by sending in money, buying 350.org paraphernalia, partaking in civil disobedience and even hiking across the United States. This is an impressive public relations accomplishment. More importantly, however, such antics cleverly lend themselves toward authenticating the notion that most every extreme weather event is attributable to dangerous CO2 levels. This conjecture has become as central part a part of the powerful liberal and progressive opinion generating apparatus as the declarations of eugenicists seeking to build a master Nordic race a century ago—an assemblage of scientists and publicists who were, uncoincidentally, funded by some of the same interests.

McKibben’s 350.org project is the public face of his 501(c)(3) 1Sky Education Fund, which between its founding in 2007 and 2009 took in close to $5,000,000 in foundation money and “public contributions.” In 2010 the Rockefeller Brothers Fund gave 1Sky $200,000. The key “scientific” paper McKibben points to as support for his dire warnings on climate change, “Target Atmospheric CO2: Where Should Humanity Aim,” coauthored by NASA scientist James Hansen, was partially funded through Rockefeller Foundation money.[15]

The piece is not so much a scientific report as it is a set of mandates calling for drastic social and political action to avert continued CO2 “buildup.” “Preservation of a climate resembling that which humanity is accustomed,” the authors assert, “requires that most remaining fossil fuel carbon is never emitted to the atmosphere.” Independent researchers and journalists assert that such proposed policies based on tying carbon emissions to atmospheric decay, many of which are already underway in some US states at the local level, will inevitably curtail further industrial development (and consequently economic growth) of almost every type and circumvent existing property rights while ushering in a new age of near-feudal hardship.[16]

McKibben and 350.org are an especially proficient example of the many foundation-supported promotional outlets that, in the tradition of Edward Bernays, have since the late 1990s fundamentally altered public perception and discourse on weather and the climate. This is particularly the case among members of the intelligentsia who disturbingly accept the pronouncements of calculating figures such as McKibben and Vice President Al Gore—individuals that routinely demonstrate their contempt for science and the public interest by trumpeting the assumed inevitability of an uncertain theory. As a result the CO2 explanatory phantom dominates center stage and wholly removes from consideration far more probable causes of unusual and extreme weather.

Piece of Mind through Conformity

The established intellectual communities’ uncritical acceptance of the CO2-specific description of climate change has far less to do with its plausibility or scientific soundness—the “science” is too opaque for pedestrian comprehension and its accompanying shortcomings and qualifications are routinely and fraudulently downplayed—than it does with the overall ubiquity of the notion and an especially naïve faith in the fair and equitable production and dissemination of scientific knowledge.

The reasoning goes something like this. If non-CO2-related explanations of unusual weather patterns existed, the benevolent and impartial foundations would recognize their significance and fund such countervailing scientific research. As the histories of modern medicine, psychiatry, eugenics, and public education suggest, however, the reality is that the dominant paradigm is not the one that is ultimately the most valid and principled, but rather the one that is best funded. In this regard the foundations’ wealthy benefactors call the tune and run the show.

The overall effort has been a public relations coup of immense proportions not because it has seized the hearts and minds of the general public, many of which remain skeptical of the theory, but rather among educated opinion leaders who through personal mystification with their own credentials and titles are the most steadfast in the beliefs they are inured to accept. Even the few who have misgivings about the prevalent explanation of climate change and less examined yet entirely conceivable causes will seldom speak their minds for fear of incurring the wrath of their colleagues and peers, thus perpetuating a professional sphere that more closely resembles a Stalinist inquisition than one where free and open debate are fostered.

In order to preserve ones sanity, reputation and specialized status one need recognize the importance of alignment with an unexamined belief in what one has been told by the “experts” and their spokespersons while simultaneously assuming excessive skepticism toward the readily apparent phenomena of everyday life, however well-documented and alarming they may be. We may seldom have any more clear, sunny days, storms may be of mainly synthetic derivation and direction, and in less than a generation children could be developing Alzheimer’s by their late teens, but are these sufficient reasons to jeopardize one’s professional and social standing?

To broach the topic of weather control and geoengineering programs not only indicates an unhealthy lack of faith in overwhelmingly powerful yet poorly understood institutions and their guiding rationales. It also runs counter to that “good solid feeling of being correct without having to think.” Such dialogue suggests bad taste, especially when one can discuss Paul Krugman’s latest column or where to buy the best arugula. For these reasons I’ve tentatively resigned myself to a fate befitting a well-educated and properly conditioned member of the intellectual class. Realizing that my destiny and that of my loved ones can no longer be considered exclusively our own, I’ve finally learned to stop worrying and love chemtrails.

CIA Chief Enters Lesser Occultation

1. “Does it help if folks know that I hosted Elie Wiesel and his wife at our quarters last Sun night?!  And that I will be the speaker at the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps in mid-Apr at the Capitol Dome…” (David Petraeus)

Frankly, I think Petraeus deserves what he got just for sucking up to the Zionist lobby by “hosting” Elie “what is my real name?” Wiesel. By the way, Wiesel’s name is pronounced “Zionist Asshole” just in case you weren’t aware.

A while back I linked to a Mondoweiss article showing some of Petraeus’s machinations.  The quote at the top is from that article.  It makes good reading. The source is James Morris who had been in some email contact with Petraeus.

So here’s a guy who really really wants to do all he can to be THE man. And he resigns over screwing a West Point graduate over achiever after an investigation by the FBI which concluded that there would be no charges against him or  her and that national security had not been violated? So he resigns.  Excuse me, but something is just not right.

The Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post (JEWNYPT), reports:

One of them said Justice Department officials were unclear on what steps to take after they concluded that there would be no charges against the CIA director or Broadwell and that there had been no breach of national security.
But then the same report states that ODNI director Clapper told Petraeus to resign which he then did and outed himself and Broadwell in the process. I find that very interesting.

The same JEWNYPT article claims that JEWNYPT tried to contact Paula (Kranz) Broadwell but that she was unavailable. It also mentions, in passing, that JEWNYPT editor Vernon Loeb co-wrote her bio of Petraeus, however, and I’m shocked, of course, JEWNYPT does seem to have tried to contact Loeb to see what he had to say and his name never appears again in this rather long and detailed article.

Now, JEWNYPT also ran an article focusing on Broadwell, but without actually talking to her.  She actually seems kind of likeable, despite her cultural chauvinism – like dressing like a whore by local standards in Afghanistan. I did find this curious:

“Officers close to Petraeus grew concerned about her posts on Facebook, which they believed sometimes divulged sensitive operational details.”

And “Some senior officers thought Broadwell, who held a security clearance and had served as an Army intelligence officer, should have known better.”

Hold on a second. She’s in Afghanistan, for some reason still has a security clearance but does not have an official position and wears revealing civilian clothing, and she’s posting operational details on Facebook and nobody did anything. What the fuck is that all about? Even a Shas Party member knows that that is a major no no

Ladies and gentlemen, I submit to you that there’s more than meets the eye to this story. It stinks to high heaven.   It reeks of the smell of Zionist bullshit.  It may just be regular good old all American bullshit – it will be interesting to see just what kind of shit we are dealing with.

I think he plans to return to the scene down the road. The greater occultation won’t be for a while.

2. In the meantime, Israel has gone on an insane binge of violence in Gaza, killing seven people so far.

Last week, Israel ” conducted at least 92 military incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza. During these incursions, Israeli soldiers arrested at least 60 Palestinians, including 5 children one man was shot dead by Israeli troops near the Gaza borders this week as well.”

You don’t read this shit in the M$M and you never will. Kind of puts things in context doesn’t it?

3. I think I might have posted this video once before, but it is sort of fitting here, somehow. I had found another great Mercedes Nieto video, but I’m going to make you wait.  I do think you might like the song.

And remember, if you laugh at this video you are a bad person.

VENEZUELA DENOUNCES UN SECURITY COUNCIL INACTION,WHILE ISRAHELL AND ALLIES DESTABILIZE SYRIA ,AND REGION

NOVANEWS

The imperialists and their allies seek to establish a kind of good terrorism and resort to terrorism, including  State(sponsored), said Jorge Valero / charging that it placed in power governments and client regimes of  imperial powers to not resist the elite Israel’s political-military machine.Venezuela on Monday denounced the inaction of the Security Council to the expansionist policy of Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories because of the threat of veto by the United States and its allies.Speaking at a Security Council meeting on the situation in the Middle East, Venezuela’s permanent representative to the UN, Jorge Valero, warned against the increased volatility and violence in the region as a serious risk for world peace .
He said some members of that body “are inhibited to the obvious threats to international peace and security posed by the Israeli government,” while encouraging conflicts that should be resolved through mediation and dialogue, as in the case of Syria.These behaviorsby the  warmongers challenge the UN institutions, the validity of its Charter and international law, he said.On Syria, Valero condemned the financing and arming of mercenaries and terrorist elements in order to overthrow the government, with disregard for the death of thousands of innocent civilians and the deepening of the destabilization in the Middle East.
He said that the imperialists and their allies seek to establish a kind of ”good terrorism and resort to terrorism”, including State(sponsored), when the appetite to seize and control territory and natural resources or real topple leaders demand it.Tel Aviv seeks to strengthen itself and weaken the Palestinian cause at the expense of increased uncertainty and instability in the Middle East, he said.
He recalled the Venezuela government warnings about the dire consequences of arming terrorist mercenary groups to try to overthrow the government in Syria.”Those who speak of peace today, with cynicism, are those who are more interested in the war of colonial expansion,” said the alert about Israel’s refusal to allow inspections of its nuclear facilities and to sign the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.

Media Exploit Institution’s Differences

NOVANEWS

 

By Sajjad Shaukat

 

Since the speeches of November 5 by Chief of Army Staff, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, a new debate has started in our media which have been leaving no stone unturned by exploiting their statements.

Although there is some difference in nature of their statements, yet in their addresses, central point of both army chief and chief justice is the same. Their assertions about the supremacy of the constitution, strengthening the institutions, rule of law, fundamental rights as enshrined in the constitution, realisation of forgetting mistakes of the past and to take a fresh start for the protection and defence of the homeland show similar views.

While hinting towards foreign enemies and media, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani also remarked, “conspiracy theories based on rumours which create doubts about the very intent, are unacceptable.”

No doubt, the said speeches of the army chief and chief justice have much in common, but regrettably, a few segments of print and electronic media have been manipulating their statements with evil designs to indicate as if there is a clash between the judiciary and army. It could be judged from the media anchor, Kamran Khan who in a private TV channel, said that Gen. Kayani’s statement came in response to Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry speech. In fact, timings of both the speeches were different and there was only one hour gape in them. Chief Justice delivered his speech at 4 P.M, while army chief at 5 P.M, and they did not know as to what the other had been saying.

Afterwards, particularly our electronic media anchors have conducted a controversial debate by inviting politicians, defence analysts, renowned lawyers and journalists to create confrontation between two prestigious national institutions. Some of them have been maligning Pak army and intelligence agencies with reference to various cases, especially recent verdict of the Supreme Court in the Air Marshal (r) Asghar Khan case, while some have been saying that the apex court has superseded the limits of the parliament and the constitution of Pakistan. These media commentators are only misleading the general masses about judiciary and army through their misperceptions.

Since the apex court has taken notice of various cases, our politicians and media have exploited every case like the Memogate case, NRO case, missing persons of Balochistan, law and order situation in Karachi etc., to tarnish country’s key security intuitions, and by creating a rift between Pak Army and general masses. In these terms, political leaders become unintentional victim by benefiting the external plotters, while some of our media commentators are on the payroll of anti-Pakistan powers.

Now, the recent ruling of the Supreme Court in the Air Marshal (r) Asghar Khan case has continuously been manipulating by our politicians and media experts who have been giving new turns to the case. In this regard, the apex court directed the government to take action against former Army Chief Gen. Mirza Aslam Baig and former Chief of ISI Gen. Asad Durrani for distributing millions of rupees among anti-PPP politicians in the 1990 elections. The court also ruled that former Mehran Bank chairman Younas Habib should also be dealt in the same manner. But the Court left it to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to initiate investigation against all the politicians who received money. In this context, Imran Khan remarked on October 19 that all these politicians will become innocent through a bribery-deal with the FIA.

During the Mehrangate investigations, Younis Habib had revealed that Rs. 340 million were given to form Islami Jamhuri Ittehad (IJI)), and Rs. 3.5 and Rs. 2.5 million were given to Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif respectively, and to Jamaat-e-Islami Rs. 5 million. Besides, he had disclosed that other political figures also received money. Former ISI Chief Gen. Asad Durrani on March 10 also admitted before the Supreme Court that on the instructions of Gen. Mirza Aslam Beg, he distributed money among politicians of IJI to counter the PPP.

Notably, elections are expected this year, so the blame game of corruption has intensified between the leaders of PPP and PML-N in relation to rigging the elections of 1990, and the NRO-Swiss bank accounts, relating to President Asif Ali Zardari.

Besides, by taking advantage regarding other cases, and without grasping ground realties, now-a-days, Pakistan’s media commentators have been exploiting the same by creating a wedge between the main pillars of the country. In this regard, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on October 31 issued summons to three retired generals, namely, Lt. Gen. Javed Ashraf Qazi, Lt. Gen. Saeeduz Zafar and Maj-Gen. Hassan Butt for accusing them of illegally sanctioning railway property to the ‘Royal palm golf club.” While, Gen. Kayani did not interfere in these cases, but recently, made a new precedent in the history of Pakistan by taking action against the three high-ranked officers of the National Logistic Cell (NLC), namely, Lt-Gen. Khalid Munir Khan, Lt-Gen. (r) M. Afzal Muzzafar and Maj-Gen. (r) Khalid Zaheer Akhtar who have been accused of being involved in a multi-billion scam and have been taken back in active service so that they may face court martial.

Rather than appreciating Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, our political entities, especially media are creating stereotypes among the general masses about the Pak Army by raising false allegations of corruption against the Army as an institution. But, fact is that if any army soldier involves himself in any such malpractice, it is his individual act. In this context, Gen. Kayani remarked in the same speech, “no one is guilty until proven.”

Our media also manipulated the case of Balochistan. In this connection, the Supreme Court, while hearing petition regarding deteriorating law and order situation in Balochistan, declared on October 31 that Balochistan government lost its authority in the province. And during the subsequent hearings, the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry held ISI, Military Intelligence (MI) and Frontier Corps (FC) responsible for extra-judicial killings and missing persons of Balochistan.

In this respect, the honourable Chief Justice and media anchors of Pakistan must know that fact behind the worsening circumstances and the disappeared people of Balochistan is that secret agencies like CIA, RAW and Mossad which have established their collective network in Afghanistan are in collusion, and have perennially been supporting bomb blasts, suicide attacks, abductions, target killings, ethnic and sectarian violence in Balochistan through their affiliated militant groups such as Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), Jundollah (God’s soldiers), and other Baloch feudal lords (Sardars) to dismember Pakistan for their strategic designs. Their subversive activities have resulted in missing persons in Balochistan, for which BLA and other separatist groups have claimed responsibility.

While talking about the army-judiciary differences, and hinting towards media and foreign enemies, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf said in his statements, “some people are trying to create this wrong impression; there is no collision among any national institutions which are working within their own parameters.” He also clarified, “Parliament represents the will and aspirations of the people. The leaders of the mainstream political parties like PPP, ANP and JUI-F pointed out that no doubt, the Supreme Court is the apex court, but when we talk about supreme institution, the parliament is the supreme institution as per the constitution. While admitting that everyone including politicians, judges and generals had committed mistakes in the past, even head of the PML-N Nawaz Sharif who has remained a vocal critic of Pak Army stated on November 7, “The army, under the leadership of its present head, has desisted from any kind of adventurism.”

Stressing upon national unity, Gen. Kayani explained on June 9, 2011, “Any effort to create division between important institutions of the country is not in national interest…the people of Pakistan whose support the army has always considered vital for its operations against terrorists.” Recently, he repeated similar views about media speculations of military operation in North Waziristan.

Everyone knows that Pakistan has been facing multi-faceted crises of serious nature coupled with subversive activities by the external-backed insurgents. In his statement of November 5, Gen. Kayani also indicated that as a nation, we were passing through a defining phase. So, instead of exploiting differences between key institutions of the country, and tarnishing the image of security forces by setting aside all their past and present sacrifices for Pakistan in wake of war against terrorism, our media must show realistic approach by emphasising selfless unity among the security forces, politicians and general masses. Media anchors must not create confrontation between Army and Supreme Court which will fulfill anti-state agenda of foreign enemies.

ZIOCON” Harper Launches Major First Nations Termination Plan: As Negotiating Tables Legitimize Canada’s Colonialism

NOVANEWS



BY 
On September 4th the Harper government clearly signaled its intention to:1) Focus all its efforts to assimilate First Nations into the existing federal and provincial orders of government of Canada;2) Terminate the constitutionally protected and internationally recognized Inherent, Aboriginal and Treaty rights of First Nations.Termination in this context means the ending of First Nations pre-existing sovereign status through federal coercion of First Nations into Land Claims and Self-Government Final Agreements that convert First Nations into municipalities, their reserves into fee simple lands and extinguishment of their Inherent, Aboriginal and Treaty Rights.To do this the Harper government announced three new policy measures:(1)A “results based” approach to negotiating Modern Treaties and Self-Government Agreements.
This is an assessment process of 93 negotiation tables across Canada to determine who will and who won’t agree to terminate Inherent, Aboriginal and Treaty rights under the terms of Canada’s Comprehensive Claims and Self-Government policies. For those tables who won’t agree, negotiations will end as the federal government withdraws from the table and takes funding with them.(2)First Nation regional and national political organizations will have their core funding cut and capped. For regional First Nation political organizations the core funding will be capped at $500,000 annually. For some regional organizations this will result in a funding cut of $1 million or more annually.
This will restrict the ability of Chiefs and Executives of Provincial Territorial organization’s to organize and/or advocate for First Nations rights and interests.(3)First Nation Band and Tribal Council funding for advisory services will be eliminated over the next two years further crippling the ability of Chiefs and Councils and Tribal Council executives to analyze and assess the impacts of federal and provincial policies and legislation on Inherent, Aboriginal and Treaty rights.

Release Jassim Al Hulaibi and other prisoners of conscience

Release Jassim Al Hulaibi and other prisoners of conscience
1,000
185

185 signers. Let’s reach 1,000

Why this is important

Amongst the prisoners of conscience in Bahrain are university students who have not committed any crime. They are innocent. It’s essential to save them. One of the students is Jassim Al Hulaibi. Al Hulaibi was a student at Bahrain Teachers College. He had an excellent academic record. Instead of honoring this student for his excellent conduct and for his academic record, he is now in prison. He has been in prison since more than a year ago and was sentenced to 15 years.

It all started on March 13, 2011 when pro-democracy students protested in the university. Al Hulaibi was not with them. He was injured, and could not go to university. There are medical reports prove that.

On March 27, 2011 police raided Al Hulaibi’s home at 2 am and arbitrarily arrested him. They were beating him as they took him forcefully in the car. His family didn’t know his whereabouts for more than one month. Al Hulaibi was sentenced to 15 years in prison. The charges are: attempting murder, intimidating others, and vandalizing the university on March 13, 2011. Confessions were taken under torture. AL HULAIBI WAS NOT THERE AT UNIVERSITY ON THAT SPECIFIC DAY. He was injured as a result of a government forces attack on a peaceful protest in his neighborhood, and it would be impossible for him to leave to university or to walk with his injured leg.
Al Hulaibi is not the only student wrongly imprisoned in Bahrain. Please help us in freeing Al Hulaibi and other political prisoners.

Hypocrisy and War Crimes: The Western Imperium

NOVANEWS
The U.S. has a long history of unleashing chemical and biological warfareagainst civilians both abroad and at home, primarily as an experiment but also to get rid of outdated stockpiles and make room for new generation weapons. Canadian author Robert Rodvik rips into Barack Obama for hypocritically warning Syria against its alleged use of chemical weapons and lambastes his own country which, from a potential U.S. target, turned into a U.S. accomplice in the chemical warfare waged against the Vietnamese people. In the world of realpolitik, nothing takes place in the USA or its NATO partners that isn’t infused with massive dollops of propaganda and then stretched out further by the chattering class who regard hypocrisy as a normal adjunct of their role as soothsayers for war and ever more war,
Since the arms merchants in truth dictate US foreign policy while the Pentagon Press, a.k.a the Mainstream Media brainwash the masses into support for their murderous policies. There is no point, after all, in the manufacturing of war material unless it is to be used.Bombs left on shelves will otherwise rot and disintegrate; useless to all warmongers and therefore given true purpose by the military thugsters who once served the Pentagon but by virtue of the revolving door now revel in their extravagant rewards paid by the arms merchants, the new paymasters for this warrior hierarchy running the criminally capitalist nations – the ultimate hypocrisy being the notion that these countries stand for democracy and concern for humanitarian principles.
The hypocrisy therein is so incredible only a good laugh can do justice to the absurdity of the chargeHere we have the US and its toadies delivering every armament of western manufacture to their death squad pals who are attempting to install a Sharia government in Syria and in the process kill each and every member of the Allawite and Christian communities still alive and fearing for the carnage to follow the US-led terror squads rampaging the once quiet countryside. But thanks to the Pentagon/Corporate press all the realities discussed above remain shrouded in obfuscation and distortion. The sheeple, after all, are needed for the US wars still to come.
