Gary Locke

The hard Neo-Cons are gunning for Hillary trying to damage her, stop her momentum, even push her around so much that she’ll make a big u-turn and not run (not likely!).  Their weapons are their think-tanks, publications, super money men, and among other things Benghazi.   What’s amazing actually is that with Hillary and Bill in the public eye for so long – pretty much ever since their days at Yale Law — they haven’t got more skeletons in their closets dripping out.  The rumors about Hillary being bi-sexual have faded it seems…but maybe that’s in preparation for a redux down the road?

Despite my photo with Hillary I’m not really promoting her for the big job.   Too many times she’s been a kind of soft Neo-con on major international affairs issues.  But then, as so many friends point out, think of the alternatives!  And others, women especially, find her irresistible.

The photo comes from the current issue of The Weekly Standard which week after week goes after Hillary.  For links to many  articles and other important Washington-related developments check daily

ATTACK IRAN! Washington Prepares!

30 05 2014

   ATTACK IRAN! NGOs, Professors, Universities, Lobbies Prepare the Way

In Washington many NGOs, Professors, and Universities are interconnected with the government and lobbying groups.    Hence this kind of thing takes place using Georgetown University and the World Affairs Council as well as C-Span Cable TV.   Finding out who actually arranged, promoted, and paid for things of this kind is difficult without a great deal of investigation and background.

In this hour+ TV video being promoted far and wide now, Matthew Kroenig, author of A Time to Attack: The Looming Iranian Nuclear Threat, says that it is critical for the U.S. to prepare to attack IRAN. He argues that it is worth trying diplomacy, but that the U.S. should also prepare to attack Iran and risk regional even world war if Iran does not comply with US and Israeli demands.Kroenig teaches at Georgetown University and spoke at the World Affairs Council of Washington, D.C.

This book was published on 13 May.  The book and the big promotion campaign surrounding it have many of the signs of something that has been assisted and maybe even orchestrated by the Israeli/Jewish Lobby.

A Time to Attack: The Looming Iranian Nuclear Threat


US Now Arming/Training Syrian Rebels…echos of bin Laden and al Qaeda

29 05 2014

Years ago the US did the same in Afghanistan, arming and training Islamic fighters against the government and Soviet Union.  Osama bin Laden was then working with and for the Americans.  He and his fighters were trained, armed, and assisted by the CIA.  Al Qaeda was then born.   Now the US and allies are arming and training Islamic fighters in Syria against the government, supported in response by Russia, Iran and Lebanon.

Once again, but in such a new way, the Egyptian people have defied the Generals and the Military Junta that rules them.   After all the propaganda, after extending at the last minute the voting to 3 days, after giving everyone a voting holiday and free transportation, and also after threatening a big fine for anyone who didn’t vote, Egypt’s polling stations are practically empty.   No matter what the Junta government says in the days ahead, the pictures, the imagery, and the realities, are already evident.

First he seized power in a military coup.  They he murderously massacred  thousands of his own people.  Then he brutally arrested and tortures thousands more.  Then he declared the most popular political movement in Egypt which had in fact last year won not only the Presidency but the Parliament a “terrorist organization”.  Along the way he has arrested journalists and young activists and accused them of also being or aiding terrorists!   And oh yes, he also promoted himself to Field Marshal!  Talk about megalomaniac and narcissistic behavior!   Add to that criminal!

But after all this, after taking total control of the media, after billions from the Saudis, after promoting himself far and wide day in and day out, the sham “election” has backfired on Sisi and on the Junta,

The Soft Neocons, many in his own party, have succeeded in pushing Obama to further intervention in Syria as well as Ukraine as well as forcing him to give up on pressuring Israel for the kind of “Two-State Solution” many liberal Israelis and American Jews are desperate to achieve.

Tomorrow in a major foreign policy speech Obama will commit to keeping nearly 10,000 uniformed troops (and far more CIA and Contractors) in Afghanistan and to increasing military training and weapons, as well as CIA support, for the “rebels” in Syria.

With those goals achieved the Neocons – Hard and Soft – will up their pressures on Obama vis-a-vis Iran.

Yes much more should be said about the Soft Neocons.  For the moment think Washington Post as well as New York Times as well as the “liberal” wing of the Israeli/Jewish Lobby and such luminaries as Zbig Brzezinski and Madeleine Albright.

Israel’s Great Victory

26 05 2014

Despite everything else, including the damning “Apartheid” label with regard to the “Occupation” and the “Wall”, the “Jews only by-pass words” and the “checkpoints”, the basic Israeli ideology of Zionism has achieved great victories in recent years.

One of the greatest victories came courtesy of Pope Francis yesterday.  He became the first Pope in history to endorse Zionism and the ethnic cleansing that resulted by laying a wreath at the grave of Theodore Herzl, founder of Zionism and “The Jewish State”.

Back in 1975 the U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution which “determine[d] that Zionism  is a form of  racism and racial discrimination”.  The Israelis and Americans got this resolution rescinded in 1991.

Back to Herzl.  One has to wonder if the Pope was made aware of Herzl’s role in creating the ideology that resulted in the expulsion, the “ethnic cleansing”, of the Palestinians which in turn lead to the creation of Israel and what remains the heart of the conflict over the “Holy Land”, the Palestinian refugees now more than 7+ million strong, even more than today’s Jewish population of Israel.  In his own words:

“We must expropriate gently the private property on the state assigned to us. We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it employment in our country. The property owners will come over to our side. Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discretely and circumspectly. Let the owners of the immoveable property believe that they are cheating us, selling us things for more than they are worth. But we are not going to sell them anything back.”

Israel and American Jews

25 05 2014 The Israelis use their American Jewish friends, benefactors, and fellow travelers very well. No, this is not about Jonathan Pollard!

For instance, the former Mayor of New York,  Michael Bloomberg, who last week was back in Israel again to get a big prize, hires Jeffrey Goldberg, a Zionist ideologue and propagandist masquerading as a journalist. 

Then Bibi, the Israeli Prime Minister, invites Goldberg for an exclusive interview to blame the Palestinians for all the problems and send carefully crafted messages via “the press”.

Then Bloomberg uses his media empire to propagate the Israeli viewpoint far and wide.

Bloomberg, Goldberg, and Bibi — all on the same team.
