after a long hiatus from maintaining this site, i’ve come to the following conclusions:
the problem of the United States runs deeper than i had first thought. we are at the point of Financial Breakdown Crisis and Disintegration as a Nation.
we have been almost completely de-industrialized… i believe the US only has about 10 million industrial workers left… everything else has been outsourced and globalized. the only way out of this is re-industrialization and a New Deal/Marshall Plan for the US. the private sector will never do it. this is the eternal truth of oligarchy.. it will always act in the interest of The Few.
the New York “Federal” Reserve owns the gov’t. we must audit the Fed, clean out all of the trash, bring the crimes out of the shadows and into the public eye, re-nationalize it as the Bank of the United States, and issue credit for productive enterprise instead of paper speculation and derivatives.
both the Democratic and Republican parties are corrupt to the core… parties are obsolete..
the only way to move forward is to develop class consciousness along economic lines, NOT ethnic lines. so long as one of us is poor, all of us suffer as a society.
agreements and policy must benefit The One (individual), The Few (minorities), and The Many (majority) for them to be sustainable… balancing these three eternal groups is the purpose of the US Constitution (this comes from Machiavelli, another figure much slandered thruout history… hence Machiavellianism)
anyone preaching Separatism or Violence is an agent provocateur and should be ignored… the larger the group we assemble in opposition the more likely we will have agitation by agents provocateur. we must be ready for this so it gains no traction among us.
we cannot put the abstractions of money, the “free” market, the business cycle, the Austrian school, etc over the value of human lives, ending poverty, providing education and health care… we must raise the standard of living of everyone.
we must get rid of ideology in favor of high tech economic development.
we must put limits on bankers and financiers, financial speculators, asset strippers, etc and get back to Real Productive economy.
paper on paper gambling is parasitical to the Real Economy.
derivatives must be taxed out of existence with a 1% or greater Tobin Tax (consider this a sales tax on speculation)
the truth about “peak oil”, “global warming” and other Malthusian pseudo sciences must be exposed
insurance companies are some of the most destructive institutions in society
the policies we need to fix america are:
return to Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal
Marshall Plan for the United States
nationalize the Federal Reserve
end the secret Wall Street Drug War
end Imperialism in the Middle East in favor of Economic Development.
force Israel/Palestine to come to a peace agreement beneficial to both parties
end the new Cold War vs Russia and China
abolition of NATO
abolition of IMF/World Bank
reinstatement of Glass-Steagall, separating banks from financial services and speculation forever.
end of paper on paper transactions
end of wars of conquest on whole planet
exposure of Global Warming, Peak Oil, and any “austerity” policies as frauds
breakup of private monopolies and trusts
full investigation of Ford Foundation and its many tentacles
Webster Tarpley’s economic reform program
instant run-off voting
crash program to cure ALL diseases
crash program to build 200 new nuclear reactors
crash program to re-instate NASA manned space program including development of Moon
construction of 50,000 miles of high speed Mag-Lev trains
institution into law of FDR’s Second Bill of Economic Rights
development of hydrogen production from green technology
conversion of sea water into H^2 for clean fuel
conversion of petroleum infrastructure to clean, pollution-free H^2
conversion of internal combustion engines to run H^2. we dont need to completely redesign cars, we can convert existing vehicles to run H^2 cheaply
revival of American School of Political economy (protective tariffs for US workers, gov’t investment in infrastructure programs, national bank for growth and development)
end the Wall Street casino, zero-sum game economy
building of new hospitals and schools. healthy educated workers are our greatest wealth.
development of US as a republic of equals and strong independent nation-state, free from outside influence of any kind…. political, economic, raw materials, etc.
end of all adjustable-rate mortgages tied to LIBOR (london interbank lending rate)
end of all foreclosures on primary homes.
I am going to start the fight to win our country back. please join me.
the CFR report on Iran is a hoot and worth checking out: “Page 63, Appendix A, Important Dates in US-Iranian History, 1985-86, Washington and Tehran engage in a complex scheme to fund assistance to Nicaraguan rebels through proceeds of US weapons sales to Iran.” – Translation: The Iran-Contra Affair
Brzezinski (on Joe Biden): “Of course, Senator Biden knows everything that needs to be known about Foreign Policy.”
“needs to be known” does not sound like Brzezinski is an outside observer. it sounds like Zbig is in a position of power much higher than Biden and tells him only what is necessary to further the group’s aims. Translation: Biden knows enough for our purposes.
Brzezinski (on strategic planning): “We have no mechanism for global political planning in the US government. We have one in the State Department. And, of course, the State Department thinks everything is diplomacy. We have one in Defense. They all think that all planning is, of course, military. We have to have high level systematic comprehensive long-range foreign policy planning in the White House, probably under General Jones”
Brzezinski (on Afghanistan): “I have been saying for some months now that we have to be very careful not to repeat the mistake the Soviets made. The Soviets went to Afghanistan on the illusion that a bunch of marxists, afghan marxists, sitting in Kabul could be helped by them to build a replica of the Soviet Republic in Afghanistan. And they went in with their military and they ended up with 150,000 – 180,000 military trying to fight the afghans who would simply not give up, who objected to a foreign presence, to an alien philosophy. We have to be very careful that we don’t push too hard the notion that we’re building a modern nation-state that is democratic and constitutional on the basis of support of pro western democrats, afghans in Kabul, that we have on our side while we’re doing it, essentially, with military power which the afghans resist. So, my view is that while some troops may be needed, more here or there to offset Taliban strength, we have to move more and more in the direction of trying to seek decentralized political accomodations in different parts of Afghanistan, with different segments of the Taliban in some places, in exchange for their pledge to have no relationship with, to expel, or even to extirpate any Al Qaeda presence in the area.”
Brzezinski (on National Security Adviser General James L. Jones): “I don’t have any real sort of inside knowledge but judging him from an occasional conference with him, especially from his past, he was a person whose world view was presumably shaped to a great extent by the fact that he was an extremely successful NATO commander in Europe. He’s experienced in dealing with the Europeans. You know, he speaks remarkably good french, which is impressive. And I’m sure it’s going to make the french swoon. He has an Atlanticist viewpoint. He doesn’t have, perhaps, some of the feel for the third world, for the changing world, to the world that I call ‘globally politically awakened world’ that Obama has. I think one of the very specific qualities of Obama is that he has this feel for the 21st century. But working for Obama, he will certainly be solid on the fundamental issues of power, the relationship of the military and the political of dealing with the Allies, and he is a strong person. So, I imagine he’ll be imposing discipline on the other members of the team.”
A couple things come to mind here. The “Globally Politically Awakened World” refers to us, the internet community.
General Jones, as an ex-NATO commander, is used to fighting Russia. according to wiki: “The first NATO Secretary General Lord Ismay famously stated the organization’s goal was ‘to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down’” – Translation: This just points to more of what we already know, Russia is the enemy once again.
Not much is known about the recent terror attacks in Mumbai, India but one thing is certain, it was perfectly timed for an American audience and the four day Thanksgiving weekend. It is even being called the “Indian 9/11″ by MSNBC.
There is also a rather odd numerology connection to the 08/08/08 Georgian aggression in South Ossetia, the Mumbai attacks have eight targets with started on Nov 26 (2+6=8). Strange coincidence or is this some kind of calling card? I don’t take this numerology stuff seriously, but some people do. For now, I’ll just file it away as “weird”.
The US is already attacking Pakistan on a daily basis with UAV drones. The Mumbai attacks are clearly a provocation to escalate the war in Pakistan. It’s another False-flag operation. Continue reading →
former Marine Corps Commandant James L. Jones likely to be national security adviser
Jones will play the role as Obama’s “enforcer” to impose discipline and keep everyone working in tandem, said Zbigniew Brzezinski, who filled the national security adviser’s post under President Jimmy Carter. Vice President Joe Biden will also help prevent internal conflicts, Brzezinski said in an interview.
“I’m optimistic because of the strength concentrated at the White House,” Brzezinski said. “Otherwise there was a risk of a dispersal of strategy. But I think with Biden and Jones working together and dealing with the president on a daily basis, the chances of asserting control from the national security adviser’s office, which is the key office, are pretty good.”
Dr. Brzezinski said some VERY interesting things this morning. He was outlining a strategy for Obama, explain the role of National Security Adviser (and his controlling influence on the President), threatening Russia, and there were many rather bizarre comments made by the talking heads in regard to him.
Great stuff, confirming the new target is Russia, not Iraq or Iran, not even Pakistan… tho they will use Pakistan to destabilize both China and Russia.
Brzezinski: Jim Jones, Obama need a ‘cohesive relationship’
Nov. 25: Former national security adviser and Mika’s father Zbigniew Brzezinski discusses the rapport President-elect Barack Obama should be expected to have with members of Cabinet.
I’m surprised more people haven’t seen this Dennis Kucinich clip yet. It deserves more attention. He basically is calling or all the things we want, as people of good will. The original source is Russia Today. It goes without saying that this interview was ignored by the US media.
War in Afghanistan, Iraq, & threats against Iran totally unnecessary
We need to go back to Franklin Roosevelt, the New Deal, and build infrastructure to fix the economy
We need a new energy infrastructure – wind, solar, etc
We need to cooperate with Russia to disarm & develop the world
The Polish & Czech missiles are wrong & should be removed immediately
Georgia was clearly the aggressor in the South Ossetia/Abkhazia conflict
We have to stop Brzezinski and the policy of empire
Paulson’s bailout is a failure
I’ve included a transcript of Kucinich’s answers with some commentary and links to background info. Continue reading →
A couple of interesting things about this clip: it’s rare to see a Rothschild, the famous european banking family, in public. Lynn Forester was introduced to her husband, Sir Evelyn, by Henry Kissinger, of all people, at a meeting of the Bilderberg group, of all places.
Russia’s powerful oligarchs have hundreds of billions of dollars in Western bank accounts. They would stand to lose a great deal in the event of a Cold War–style standoff that could conceivably result, at some stage, in the West’s freezing of such holdings.
To Dr. Brzezinski, I can’t say enough about his contribution to our country. Here’s somebody who helped to shape Camp David and bring about a lasting peace between Israel and some of its neighbors. Somebody who has over decades trained some of the most prominent foreign policy specialists, not just in the Democratic party but has trained a number who ended up in the Republican party as well. He is one of our most outstanding scholars, one of our most outstanding thinkers. He has proven to be an outstanding friend and somebody who I’ve learned an immense amount from. And for him to support me in this campaign and then be willing to come out here to Iowa is testimony to his generosity. So if everybody could please give Dr. Brzezinski another round of applause..”
In my view it’s a true statement that Barack Obama “can’t say enough about (Brzezinski’s) contribution to our country”. Zbigniew recruited Obama and essentially created his political career, much like he created Jimmy Carter. You might say Obama is Carter v2.
Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.
Revanchism (from French revanche, “revenge”) is a term used since the 1870s to describe a political manifestation of the will to reverse territorial losses incurred by a country, often following a war. Revanchism draws its strength from patriotic and retributionist thought and is often motivated by economic or geo-political factors. Extreme revanchist ideologues often represent a hawkish stance, suggesting that desired objectives can be reclaimed in the positive outcome of another war.
Revanchism is linked with irredentism, the conception that a part of the cultural and ethnic nation remains “unredeemed” outside the borders of its appropriate nation-state. Revanchist politics often rely on the identification of a nation with a nation-state, often mobilizing deep-rooted sentiments of ethnic nationalism, claiming territories outside of the state where members of the ethnic group live, while using heavy-handed nationalism to mobilize support for these aims. Revanchist justifications are often presented as based on ancient or even autochthonous occupation of a territory known by the German term Urrecht, meaning a nation’s claim to territory that has been inhabited since “time immemorial“, an assertion that is usually inextricably involved in revanchism and irredentism, justifying them in the eyes of their proponents.
