Best Presidental Quote EVER

Better than Nixon saying (as Vice President) "you won't have Dick Nixon around anymore" Of course he lied. Later he said "I am not a crook!" Again, he perjured. 53251

And what about Ronald Reagan?

Ronald Reagan is the real but totally unmentioned war criminal mastermind in the story linked below, about one Guatemalan's immigration to the US. How an Accused Guatemalan War Criminal (Jorge Vinicio Sosa Orantes) Won U.S., Canadian Citizenship. Notice how in this long article they never mention the ex US president PAYMASTER who authorized the killings this dumb ex Guatemalan officer carried out. And today in Colorado we travel up and down what is called the: 'The Ronald Reagan Highway'. 37435

US Troops Out of Guatemala Now!

One cannot think of a more disgusting military in the Americas than that of the country of Guatemala for the US to be cooperating with in joint operations! US Out of Guatemala Now! Marines vs. Zetas: U.S. Hunts Drug Cartels in Guatemala. The internal journals of the US Marine Corps have been bragging recently about their training of the Kaibiles, an elite Guatemalan military squad that committed a genocide in the '80s against Guatemala's own Highland indigenous Mayan populations. Shame on the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party for doing what they are doing now. Shame on you 'liberal' voters who turn the other way pretending to not know what's going on!

The Mayan population in Guatemala still fight to keep their languages alive

The US government has long supported the genocidal Guatemalan military and business community and continues to do so. However, the Mayan people remain resilient in their continued struggles against this oppression. Al jazeera has an excellent film about the current struggle to keep the Mayan languages alive there which is well worth watching for any that support and have interest in the struggle for indigenous rights anywhere. Living the Language - Guatemala: The Maya.

Old CIA hand made new Guatemalan ‘president’

US School of Americas, Fort Benning Georgia trained Latin American death squad leader, Otto Perez Molina, has just been sworn into the Guatemalan presidency with the pledge that he will be brutal in carrying out Barack Obama's Latin American 'War Against Drugs'. 29807

Another military victory where the Poor “socialized” their blood for Capitalism

Tripoli, the site of the FIRST U.S. Military engagement to prop up capitalism, is apparently fallen, not to economic "free" market forces, but to the Armed Forces. In a book titled "Liberty Reclaimed", often described as the libertarian bible, the statement is made and reiterated "the only substantial difference between the Soviet Union and the United States isn't one of raw political power or the freedom of the subjects but one of economic policy."   So, when the Military claimed and still claim that they were and are fighting for freedom, they're lying. Just as the Pentagon and their contractors lie about Agent Orange, which killed Miss Johnnie's husband and a countless number of others. Countless because the Pentagon, bowing to their Corporate Masters, denied for more than a decade that Agent Orange actually causes human death. They also have recently claimed in a lawsuit that locks out the people of VietNam from any lawsuits that the people of the Republic of VietNam (Saigon government) sprayed with A.O. (and lots of other Military hardware sold at massive profits by the Corporations who now claim a moral exemption to taxation) were enemy combatants thus not eligible for compensation for their kids being killed.

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking

Gunny Bob, Malkin, Dr Laura, y’all hate speech traitors, come clean

How MUCH are you making, personally, apiece from the death of each soldier, airman, sailor and Marine killed in the Corporate For-profit Wars of Conquest? The ones your Corporate Masters pay you pathetic low-life professional Liars to promote for them? Not counting the Civilians killed, imprisoned, tortured at the orders of Your Masters, of course, because you Racist Bitches don't consider Iraqi and Afghan PEOPLE to be even human, especially not the Babies that you're most famous for having gotten killed. 19504

Panama Banana say that three times real fast…

But there was a strike against the Government run Banana Industry which unlike the traditional "Banana Republic" isn't a government owned by the Banana Industry. Close enough though, they're bought and Paid (on long credit terms) for by American Fat-Cats who believed and their descendants still do that their money and American (not Rich) soldiers providing the Assassinations necessary to maintain that money entitles them to own the whole world. Especially those nations physically closest to our Arbitrarily assigned borders. By the way, Corporate Warfare and Corporate Welfare are two of the key components of Fascism. The government forces attempted to take the Union leaders prisoner, and killed two union members and wounded 120 others (by Government count) three of whom are in hospitals in comas. And under arrest. Probably for violently attacking a Police Billy Club or Gun Muzzle with their foreheads. Repeatedly throwing their heads under the stomping Jack-boots of the Police even after being handcuffed. The workers, Indigenous people mostly, (that's code for "held in perpetual povertyslavery on the basis of Race" by the way) responded by taking 4 of the cops prisoner. Only the Right Wing code for that is "hostages". One of the causes of

WOOT! Kissinger War-Crimes evidence coming out!

This one a communication FROM his Royal Satanic Lowness to the puppet leadership of the Chilean Massacres in 1976. That would be in the final year of the Noble Reign of King Gerald of Ford. You remember how Bush the Elder and Bush The Chimp accused Iraq of hiding WMDs and War Criminals... and we on the Left (the ones who are still accused of being Wrong and of course Stupid because we questioned their fake assumptions) published a map of the one country on earth which has more of each class of WMD than the rest of the world combined and also harbors more war criminals than the rest of the world combined? with the headline "We Found 'em!" 15936

Oderint dum metuant, crucifixion … Spartacus and Dracula

And a comment from a lady who is upset that we, the people, rejected her Emperor Bush last year about this time... thus, we and not her Imperial Overlords are responsible for the shootings at Ft Hood... 11219

This morning on childrens programming time (Used to be Roadrunner, Bugs Bunny, Bullwinkle etc) there was a PSA spot about eating, the big part of it being Portion Control. And the AFA sports teams "I Am Team" against hunger, nobody should go hungry on Thanksgiving etc... 10862

Top 10 secret armies of the CIA

Found this on the web, will try to retrace provenance, worth a read: The United States have a well known history of providing military support to countries in need. But from time to time, the US Government has provided secret forces. While many are successful, there have also been a number of failures. This is a list of the ten top secret armies of the CIA. 7782

US starves children of Central America

  Tourists hop about and take photos of volcanoes and colorful dresses, yet the children go starving. Having visited Guatemala I know who runs that country, and it is the American Chamber of Commerce of Guatemala and the American Embassy. Meanwhile The United Nations' World Food Programme says Guatemala has the fourth highest rate of chronic malnutrition in the world and the highest in Latin America and the Caribbean and that chronic undernutrition affects about half of the nation's children under the age of 5. Surprised? Don't be. Guatemala declares calamity as food crisis grows.

US gov finally murders ‘ghost detainee’ (POW) tortured by CIA for 7 1/2 years

Libya reports prison suicide of top Qaeda man this week. Translated form CIA Arabic speak, that means he was murdered. Sure... so much has changed with Obama in office! I'm being facetious here. This man was murdered simply because he knew too much about how the Bush Administration tortured POWs in order to try to get them to fabricate 'evidence' about a Saddam Hussein-al Qaeda connection to justify their illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq. 7742

The supposedly civilized world’s ‘Sewer rat children’

Roman police find sewer children but the USA leads the way in having 'sewer rat children' in its fields, jails, and other nooks and crannies. Thousands of Deported Children Abandoned at Mexican Border, and that's just the Mexican-US Border, but the US also has Mexico doing its dirty work for them at the Mexican-Guatemalan Border, too. 7268

Harold Pinter on drama and US banditry

"What has happened to our moral sensibility? Did we ever have any? What do these words mean? Do they refer to a term very rarely employed these days - conscience? A conscience to do not only with our own acts but to do with our shared responsibility in the acts of others? Is all this dead?" -Harold Pinter (1930-2008) 5861

Growing babies for the US market

How sick! Guatemala is the leading grower of babies for the US baby market. So many are taken from Guatemala that many poorer indigenous people in that country think that the US is stealing these kids to take their vital organs for use in transplants. It's time to stop this trade in flesh. The better off in the US should not be able to buy babies taken from the poor like this.
