Baby Doc Duvalier back in Haiti…

No, really, the ex-dictator is back. Maybe he's hoping to steal some more, only this time there's no Haitian money to take. Perhaps from the international aid to Haiti? Negotiate a deal for a U.S. air base perhaps? Of course in the middle of a rigged election where, just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, there are U.S. soldiers at the polls with machine guns to make sure nobody votes for an unapproved candidate. keep order. And what of his private goon-squad "police" Les Tontons Macoutes? (French for eater of fools, a boogieman figure) And the announcement that Wikileaks is about to receive Swiss Bank records, a favorite place for Corporate Dictators, such as the Duvaliers, Cheneys and Bushes to stash stolen assets. And then, courtesy of Austin Texas online underground newspaper The Rag, contributing author Jason Flaherty Lewis Lucke, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Agency for International Development (US AID) was named U.S. special coordinator for relief and reconstruction after the earthquake. He worked this job for a few months, then immediately moved to the private sector, where he could sell his contacts and connections to the highest bidder. He quickly got a $30,000-a-month (plus bonuses) contract with the Haiti Recovery Group (HRG). HRG had been founded by Ashbritt, Inc., a Florida-based contractor who had received acres of bad press for their post-Katrina contracting. Ashbritt’s partner in HRG is Gilbert Bigio, a wealthy Haitian businessman with close ties to the Israeli military. Bigio made a fortune during the corrupt Duvalier regime, and was a supporter of the right wing coup against Haitian president Aristide. Gee, what an amazing coincidence, "Aid" profiteers in Haiti getting huge contracts, guarded by U.S. Military and.... With ties to the Duvaliers. One of whom just flew home, to pick up the pieces of his own profiteering business. After bankrupting the People of the nation he claims to love, first by stealing all the assets of the country, then leaving the PEOPLE of Haiti under harsh economic sanctions set to be in place until They paid HIS bills, Brought them down to such a level of poverty, while he and his piglets were living the high-life in France, that a relatively minor earthquake had and still has the potential to destroy them completely. What a true Patriot this fellow must be!

Could it be, Olbermann fired by FOX?

Since the following chain of logic is true, very possible and knowing the "ethical" standards of the American CorporaFascist Empire therefore very probable. Quote:November 05, 2010 12:14 PM What Role Did Comcast Play in Keith Olbermann's Suspension?--UPDATED By karoli There is a double standard at work with regard to Keith Olbermann's suspension, not only between other personalities appearing on MSNBC as commentators, but also at the very top level of the food chain. Comcast now owns MSNBC after their acquisition was completed earlier this year, despite protestations from many of us. A look at campaign finance disclosures for several organizations shows that Phil Anschutz, chairman of Comcast major shareholder and content partner with Comcast, donated large sums of money to the First Amendment Alliance, (How very Orwellian, have we wound back the clock to "1984"? Does the Legal Staff for the "First Amendment Alliance work only for the Rich? What a foolish question, of course they won't defend anybody else's freedom of speech -Jonah) one of the largest outside groups targeting Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections. The Anschutz Corporation, wholly owned by Phil Anschutz, gave $50,000 on 9/24/2010 to the First Amendment Alliance. The two candidates targeted by the First Amendment Alliance? Jack Conway and Michael Bennet. Keith Olbermann gave to Jack Conway's campaign along with Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords. In addition, the Anschutz family donated $169,900 to Republican candidates and committees during the 2010 election cycle, according to Open Secrets. Additionally, Comcast Corporation has contributed $125,000 to the Republican Governors' Association in the 2010 cycle (as of 9/30/2010). There's been a lot of chatter about MSNBC policy, and whether Olbermann should have gotten advance approval for his donations to Jack Conway, Raul Grijalva(Targeted, literally, by the Neo-Nazi group "the Minutemen" for taking a stand against their Racist anti-Immigrant policies, they fired shots at his office and have repeatedly threatened him, along with Murdering the American Child Briseña Flores in her home because her surname is Spanish) and Gabrielle Giffords on October 28th. The policy I've seen reads like this: NBC and MSNBC TV require permission of the president of NBC News. (MSNBC.com is a joint venture of NBC Universal and Microsoft.) "Anyone working for NBC News who takes part in civic or other outside activities may find that these activities jeopardize his or her standing as an impartial journalist As opposed to an "entertainer" edit by Jonah because they may create the appearance of a conflict of interest. But not Corporate donations nor the contributions from the Elitist Scum who effectively ARE the corporation- Jonah Such activities may include participation in or contributions to political campaigns or groups that espouse controversial positions. (even though Mr Olbermann made huge sums of Profits for MSNBC by celebrating or opposing very controversial positions) You should (but not "Must" -Jonah) report any such potential conflicts in advance to, and obtain prior approval of, the President of NBC News or his designee." (who insist they have no such moral obligations, far less legal -Jonah) That language clearly says "should" and not "must". Further, anyone

Glenn Beck going blind, yes, it IS paybacks… from himself to himself

Now, I do know that Macular Degeneration isn't caused by lifestyle choices. Where HIS guilt in his own blindness is that the Corporations who FUND and ORGANIZE the TeaTards and also pay him more money a month than Real Construction Workers make in a LIFETIME of REAL work, to pose as a Working Class Citizen, have with the help of the Republican, Libertarian, and now Racist-ass Tea Parties, consistently blocked research into Macular Degeneration. Consistently. The same way Ronald and Nancy Reagan blocked socially and politically any effective research into Alzheimers until Ronald was diagnosed. Their Accomplices at FOX "news" manipulation have funded the TeaTards at first "secretly", an open secret but they denied it, until the Supremes, most notably Clarence "Uncle" Thomas, whose wife is a Corporate Lawyer Whore, decided that Corporations are better than and have more rights than us mere mortal peasants, and now the TeaTards have a little dilemma on their bloodstained hands... They've been outed by their Owners as being Corporate Whores. Now, I don't really want Glenn Beck to Go Blind. For one thing he's going to suck up Medical Resources trying to buy his way out of it, even if the Macular Degeneration research were fully funded today it won't save his eyes. The punk-ass Bitch made a career out of Spiritual Blindness and while he probably DOES deserve blindness.. we the people really don't deserve to have to listen to him make himself into a Pity-pot Martyr for years to come. Much like Rush Limbaugh, when he had chest pains in Honolulu, and was kept for observation overnight. Longer actually. Then said he got no special treatment, ANYBODY with chest pains gets that treatment... He neglected to mention "IN HAWAII". Which has Socialized Medicine and has for 30 years. People in the full-on Corporate States like Texas and Colorado don't get that kind of treatment, unless they're Rich. The TeaTards also don't mention that all medical research is publicly funded, even through "private" donations. The Richest "generously" give to the foundations, BUT, they get the money back in Tax Breaks. My, what Love and Charity! And of course, like our friend Bernie Herpin tried really hard to avoid saying, they have somebody blow a trumpet before them when they do their alms... on the public dime, and probably write off the expense of the trumpet player as a Business Expense. Such VICTIMS they are! Pay other peoples money to make themselves look good then pay MORE Tax-deductible Other Peoples money to make themselves out to be Christ-on-the-Cross if somebody happens to mention it. Glenn Beck is expected to milk his "misfortune" to the tune of an eight digit pay raise on his Corporate Lie Show. Meanwhile, a POOR person, a Real Worker, who starts going blind from M.D., or perhaps from workplace hazards, or from Environmental pollution, if he doesn't have the Really Expensive Insurance he can't afford on a REAL Workmans' salary.. ALL of which Glenn Beck "blindly" opposes any remediation thereof... won't even be diagnosed until far too late. If

BP Private corporate “cops” given powers over American citizens…

The Texas City and Galveston county cops even gave BP's Private Security Pigs the photographer's home phone number. and that, allegedly, to satisfy Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force protocol. What about the Corporate Terrorism, destroying a huge chunk of the environment, directly, and the livelihood of every person dependent on that environment being sound and healthy? You know, EVERYBODY. Me, you, he and she and me and thee and we... there's not man jack of us in the entire world that isn't harmed by this. The deal about "life will survive, we won't necessarily save the planet, earth and life are going to be here long eons after we're extinct... the problem is how are we going to save Our Species?" comes to mind. And the "anti-terrorist" Security guards at the BP refinery, being photographed by a propublica reporter as part of the journalistic investigation that's apparently more thorough than Homeland InSecurity has made... the bastards are purely and simply Mercenary Terrorists. To pretend otherwise would be as absurd as saying that the Private Pigs really had some other reason for wanting the reporters phone number than being able to call him with threats, and, since BP is undoubtedly very cozy with whatever phone service the man uses, to track his whereabouts through his cell phone, something supposedly only cops who are Deputized by the PEOPLE (allegedly) to have those kinds of powers. Although, the Taxpayer owned, Privately run "justice" department doesn't give a rat's ass about any mandate from the people either.

Gordon Brown says Iraq war “right”

quote: "But the main issue for him was that Iraq was in breach of UN resolutions" AGAIN with the bullshit LIES about WMDs, how long can these ChickenHawk bastards play THAT card? "and that "rogue states" could not be allowed to flout international law." Unless they're Rogue States like the Bush Administration and its Puppets like Britain, Chile, Argentina, Honduras, Spain, Israel,.... "If the international community could not act together over Iraq, Mr Brown said, he feared the "new world order we were trying to create would be put at risk" OH NO! The PNAC and their Satanic "New World Order" wouldn't be rammed down the throatis of the Rest of The WORLD if America and Britain didn't put "rogues" in their place. The Corporate Big Pigs wouldn't be allowed to run the world any way they God-Damned Please! What could possibly be worse?

Kidnap and Torture… Corporate Failure in Mexico…

Man is kidnapped in front of his wife, taken to a secret prison and tortured for 7 months... government stonewalling, ...CIA? According to the Propaganda, Narco Gangs in Mexico. The way the story is slanted, the Mexican Federal Government is a "failed state" and the country is run by Terrorists. Like, yeah... Ford Motors, Coca-Cola, Baxter Pharmaceuticals.. oh, not THOSE Terrorists. So are "we" going to mount Operation Mexican Freedom? Go in and occupy their country, set up a(nother) Puppet government backed by Run By U.S. troops? Maybe set up arbitrary checkpoints to limit the travel of the native population... We already did. 165 years ago, to a third of the land area of their country, set up arbitrary boundary lines which they can only cross with the Royal Permission of the U.S. Government. Knocked the Mexican Republic, the parts "our" Corporate Government didn't outright Conquer errr.. "Liberate", down to a shadow state run by the French, aka Holy Roman Empire. Then sent American troops whenever the Mexican people rebelled against this setup. When the "Outlaw Regime" of Pancho Villa finally threw off Foreign Ownership and Natoinalized eerrrr "Stole" the Lawfully Conquered holdings of the Foreign Overlords, first he was assassinated (but not by an American or a paid agent of American corporate interests, no, everyone KNOWS that Americans don't commit crimes like that) and the U.S. Government waged Economic Warfare against the Parti Revolucionaria Institucional. Finally restored Corporate Dictatorship with the American financed and run Parti Action Nacional, under the Puppet Dictators Vicente Fox and now Calderon. So now what? Will they blame PRI and it's partisans for the unrest, instead of the Corporate Thieves who have now taken away everything that the PEOPLE of Mexico officially owned? Certainly it can't possibly be blamed on the almost 8 decades of unrelenting American Corporate attacks on the economy and by proxy the People of Mexico. Because that would be an admission that the Almighty Capitalism has failed. Can't have that, now, can we?

Checkup- get one now, or get one later

The theme of a commercial sponsored by Aventis Pharmaceuticals and played today on Fox between football games. Big Pharma and Fox, the ones who are trying To Make It God-Damned Impossible for uninsured people to be able to Get A Checkup Or Any Other Form Of Health Care. A Scene: Lady in doctors' office being questioned about a heart issue.. B Scene: Coroner examining body and saying "Cause of death Myocardial Infarction" (A type of heart attack) into his recording device. Next... Scene A: Doctor asking same woman about symptoms of Diabetes... Back to the coroner adding diabetes into the diagnosis. back to the doctors office, lady being asked about diet and exercise Blurb about "You can get a Check-up now, or get one later". Back to Coroner pulling a sheet over the face of the patient. Oh, yeah, Fox News, Aventis, GREAT ADVICE... considering how much you bastards are trying to keep Health Care as a privilege of the Wealthy. Even if the poor could get an appointment for a checkup under your Wealthy Elite Regime, they wouldn't be able to afford the Aventis Patented (and obscenely overpriced) medications. So what's the deal, Lucille? What's the plan, Stan? You rubbing our noses in the fact that you're Rich and we aren't? "Nanny-nanny boo boo, stick your head in doodoo, there's medicine that could save your life but you can't have any because we're Better Than You because we have money and You Don't Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha and we've got a small (extremely small) Army of Redneck Tea Party Idiots conned into pressuring Congress to keep it that way forever. All we have to do is tell the Stupid Goobers that they're going to lose their Freedom if people get adequate health care, and they're too freakishly STUPID to realize that they'll be left out too, we'll kick their collective STUPID arse back into their Slave Quarters". Some people are born out of wedlock. Some others are Self-Made Bastards. They didn't get the name at birth so they spend their lifetimes earning it.
