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. Trump was very succinct. To the point. "I'm fucked" ... actually, he's sodomized with a shovel, sideways so it would hurt more.

Saudi ruler of impoverished tribal lands won’t share oil riches with own cousins

Saudi Arabia is a land of abject poverty, dominated by whichever tribal warlord claimed to hold the deed when the British started tapping it for oil. While the common inhabitants are subjugated under crushing poverty, fundamentalist Islam, and repressive injustice punctuated with beheadings, Saudi "royals" require gold plated escalators to descend from their jet planes. Now the "crown prince", dubbed MbS, is consolidating power by arresting his fellow royal billionaires, accusing them of corruption. Isn't that rich? Corruption defines feudal kleptocracy. As supplies of oil near their end, the robber barons get ever greedy about the last drop. Did you wonder why the Al Saud windfall wasn't shared with the poor? Now they want to cut out their own relatives. No honor among thieves. Thereby settling the oxymoron of Saudi nobility.

If Syria could defend itself I bet you’d see American colors run like mad crap!

So there's a little good news as the ambush of Syria gains momentum. It's unlikely to be true, but let's indulge ourselves for a mo. It's being reported that Russia will jump to Syria's defense by attacking the Saudis, and that Iran would retaliate against Israel. Both developments deserved and overdue, but who's going to take the primary culprits, the Western colonial powers, to task? If anyone should bear the "consequences" of an illegal bombardment of Syria, the US surely has it coming. Would the US strike Syria if the Syrians could hit back? How our colors would run if, for once --it hasn't happened since 1812-- the warmaking reached our shores. Our patriot palor would blanche to ashen, I'm guessing into a full streak of yellow in no time. Must it take a Hannibal to march on the "Home Front" before Americans care enough to curb their dogs of war?   Imagine it, the cretinous feudal House of Saud decapitated. They oversee Mecca, impose a repressive Islamic code on their populace, while engorging their family wealth and flesh like medieval popes. And Israel, that last colony of white settlers bulldozing over Palestinian land and lives, dismissing them like Native Americans falling before their Euro Middleast Manifest Destiny. Could a Syrian debacle spell the end for the feral Arab warlordships and for Palestine's Jewish exceptionalist Apartheid? It might be worth it. Especially as we won't be paying for it with OUR lives.   "International consequences." I like the sound of that precedent.

US government helping Saudis to pay salaries for Syrian ‘rebels’

It has just been a few days since Obama's Pentagon spokeswoman, Hillary Clinton, was parading herself around the planet lying loudly and claiming that the US has had nothing to do with arming forces trying to overthrow the Assad government in Syria. Report: Saudis will pay salaries of rebel Syria army ___Turns out that the US and its allies are paying the salaries of these terrorists after all. Clinton has been lying.

Operation Iraqi Freedom To Say And Do Exactly What They’re Told

Apparently the Imperialists weren't lying when they said they were bringing American-style "freedoms" In Bahrain and in Iraq... where the Iraqi Puppet Government PIGS have used American style Police Tactics to break up demonstrations, including, with the United States "Freedom" Army standing ready to back them up if the Peasants took the upper hand, simply slaughtering protestors. Something the Colorado Springs Gestapo knows full well, beating and arresting peaceful marchers (mostly elderly and disabled) in the St Patricks Day Parade 2007 "Protesters took to the streets of Iraq again today, demanding the same reforms that have become common cause across the Arab world. But while most nations have chosen violence or empty promises (both of which the Maliki government has dabbled in) to answer these demands, Iraq is also taking a very American idea. On Wednesday the government announced a ban on protests in the capital city of Baghdad, saying that street vendors had complained it was hurting business. The answer was to sequester protesters into specially designated free speech zones. The US began using “free speech areas” to move political dissent away from public view, nominally for security reasons, and became extremely common starting in 2004, when both major party conventions herded protesters into cages that were officially acceptable areas in which to protest. The notion of doing so in Baghdad was mocked by protesters, who insisted that herding them all into soccer stadiums was absurd. Protesters continued to march in the streets instead, and no reports indicate any protesters showed up at the stadiums." The Puppet al Maliki knows how to dance when the Imperial Storm Troopers pull his strings. And the soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors who say they're fighting for OUR freedom there or anywhere else are still lying, as are any of their political allies. One of the slaughters of demonstrators in Iraq happened very recently, when the War-Pigs were applauding demonstrations in Libya and Syria, but, again, having U.S. military standing by in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and of course, Iraq, to make sure the Peasants didn't get too "uppity" and actually TAKE the "freedom" the U.S. Politicians lie so smoothly and say they've "given" to the region. Meanwhile, Bradley Manning languishes in the Torture Dungeons at Quantico for telling the Truth which those same politicians dare not speak. Hillary Rodham-Clinton, Imperialist that she insists she isn't, said that Iran was "meddling" in the pro-democracy movements. Oh, my! How DARE the Iranian people feel concern for something happening in their back yard! Especially since the Puppet Hereditary Dictators in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, and Kuwait are ROYALTY to and the Iranian government is composed of "Peasants". Yeah, piggoes, some "freedom" you're exporting. Gotta admit, though, the beat downs, arrests, torture and murders THEY commit with YOUR backing, are exactly the same as how you treat American Dissidents. For once you Pig Bastards weren't actually Lying.

Bahrain King Hamad fells monument at Pearl Roundabout to efface revolution, also so his hanging won’t be iconic

The prevailing talking point on Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa is that he's a "good man." So is his son the Crown Prince, apparently both "good men," which stands at odds with the ongoing murderous repression of their fiefdom's pro-Democracy demonstrators and the doctors trying to save them. How genteel an argument, to dismiss reports of massacres, arrests and beatings out of hand, because their reality would simply be too out of character to be believed. Media spokesman for the proto-Saudis and their Western Boyars assure viewers the news is inherently inconsistent with the much-self-beloved royals. How does that square with the sudden calculated move to tear down the monument at the center of the Pearl Roundabout which had become the iconic symbol of Bahrain's popular uprising and its resilient demonstrators? Oh the sculpture resembled less political symbolism than cake decoration, the usual garish erection by born-in-a-tent nouveau riche. But what are we to conclude was the king's benevolent motive? A sudden aesthetic enlightenment" I would advise the self-bolstered monarch to fell every structure in Bahrain from which his subjects might be able to string a noose.

US govt spreads terror to Yemen

Hundreds of thousands of new refugees and yet another country, Yemen, is now being destabilized by the US's relentless drive to control the Middle East's oil resources. Yemen is not oil rich but sits in a strategic locale between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and Iran and the Horn of Africa (Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Kenya). That makes it a key battle zone (like Lebanon and Syria to the West) in US efforts to destabilize and topple the current Iranian government in order to replace it with a servile puppet regime under US government control. If you hear anything about this new outbreak of fighting, it will be described by the corporate media as being nothing but a battle between Yemen government forces allied with US ally, Saudi Arabia, and Northern Shia Houtha rebels allied with Iran. No hint beyond that of this civil war being part of anything much larger in size. No hint of US government involvement in the hostilities. Hiding in the shadows though, is the US government and their traditional European allies, Britain, Germany, France, Italy, and so on. This is just one more front line in their neo-imperial expansionism, and thus Yemen joins Pakistan joins Lebanon joins Gaza. The direct casualties of these imperialist wars by the US government and the Pentagon can be seen in this film, and make up, as usual, many very innocent civilians, including many small children. Barack Obama doesn't care though. These children victims of US government war making live far away and are quite defenseless. Out of sight out of mind to the Big Shots in D.C. See Yemenis flee to Saudi border - a film from Al Jazeera for a snapshot picture of the new conflict.
