Saudi King’s SON – What a CRAZY idea!

29 11 2014

The super rich Saudis throw their money around almost as much as they buy their Western women and imprison and cut off the heads of those seeking to end the terribly repressive Monarchy.

But the notion, put forth by one of their prostituting lobbyists in The Washington Star earlier this month, that the Saudi King’s son,  Miteb bin Abdullah, should address a Joint Session of Congress is way off the scale of gross absurdities that the Saudi P.R. agents cash in on.   And yet the crazed narcissistic Saudi Royals keep going for and paying for it!


Even if the sitting King of Arabia, Abdullah, were to visit Washington he couldn’t be given the rare honor of addressing the Congress.    Not after 9/11, not after the secret chapter about his country that has never been published, not after all the Saudi beheadings and gross human rights violations at home, in Bahrain, and beyond.    That his son, on his now ended visit to Washington to be checked out by his American handlers, would do so was ludicrous from the start.  But you can bet a lot of money changed hands along the way,  just like a lot of girls were brought to his hotel suite.


“Jewish State” further threatening all who dare speak up even on Facebook!

27 11 2014

Arresting Palestinians for thought crimes and political dissidence is not new, though the extension of this policy to postings on Facebook and other social media is a new further escalation.   The Israeli government has many times over many years arrested Palestinian journalists, raided international news offices, defamed and even killed activists and journalists.   Even U.N. officials  and foreign dignataries have been barred from Israel  or deported.  Italy to fight anti-Semitism in cyberspace  Now the right-wing Israelis are determined to legally declare Israel a “Jewish State” for the Jewish people only,  as well as to further threaten and repress anyone who dares speak up for basic human rights and freedoms.


Corrupt Devilish Washington DC – Reflections at Thanksgiving Time

26 11 2014,_political_cartoon,_1885.jpgEven with all the corruption and incompetence Americans face from the governing class in Washington, most of us still have so much to be thankful for.    But in comparison to what our country should be, to what our potential has been, to what advantages we have had, we Americans have not done so well and out collective future is definitely now in decline.

Even with all the tragic and destructive things the U.S. does via its highly militarized foreign policy, there are many positive and thankful aspects to U.S. involvement with the whole world around us.   But when judged by what our policies should be, and what great harm we have brought to so many especially in the Middle East, we Americans also need to be not only ashamed but aware of the crimes our leaders have committed in our name.

This said, Happy Thanksgiving to all!

It should be no contest really.    Iran has the largest gas reserves in the world, and comes just after Saudi Arabia with oil.   It has a vastly greater population that is much more sophisticated and far more educated, along with a much more diverse and capable society.   It also has considerable geopolitical advantages.

But the Saudi Royals have teamed up with the Israelis, and together they  manipulate the Americans, who in turn manipulate the EU, so that Iran is the odd man out under severe economic sanctions, ongoing coup plots, and everywhere now surrounded by hostile military forces lead by the United States and Israel.

Nevertheless, fearing an Iranian breakthrough that could lead to major political and economic gains, the Saudis, Israelis, Neocons, and much of world Jewry keep pushing for isolating Iran, weakening Iran, “regime changing” Iran.   The battle isn’t really about nuclear weapons…rather that’s the ruse, the excuse.  The battle is over regional power and influence, and that of course includes the vast natural resources of the region and the resultant excesses of petro-dollars.

Add to this how the fractured and dominated Muslim world has allowed the Sunni-Shia divide to be manipulated by the West (Israel included of course) to their own great advantage.   And as a result, even in just recent decades, millions of Muslims and Arabs have been slaughtered, countries destroyed, millions more made homeless refugees, and the entire region now engulfed in flames of hatred and destruction.

It is a complex modern-day Judeo-Christian-led neo-Crusade and that helps explain the rise of radical Islamic forces now throughout the region from North Africa to Pakistan.

Beauty, Tears, and “FREE PALESTINE”

“And free Palestine, please, please, free Palestine and the Syrian people,”  proclaimed the tearful 25-year-old woman from Tunisia, now world Muslim beauty queen .


Not only does Israel continue to do great harm to itself and the Jewish people, but the image and standing of the United States continues to be harmed in so many ways by Israel and its supporters.

Intifada III Underway

Thrid Intifada in progress Middle East Monitor

It hasn’t been named yet, but it is Intifada III, the latest Palestinian uprising against not just the Israeli occupation, but the ever- escalating Israeli apartheid.

Actually it’s only Intifada III if dealing just with recent decades.   The Palestinians have really been fighting against what has been done to them by the Israelis, with so much help from the Brits and Americans, for nearly a hundred years now, even before the Balfour Declaration.  They’ve been deceived, tricked, lied to, and “peace process” manipulated, throughout these years.  Their rebellion deserves more than understanding, it deserves support.
