U.S. Hypocrisy over Pakistan spy round-up and “human shields”

Has the Favorite Whine about “How DARE another nation exercise the same sovereign rights as America?” in the so called “liberal” media. Who are these phantasmal “Liberal Media” anyway? Every press, TV, and radio syndicate in the country bows down before the Police State Warmonger-Whorelords. I guess it’s people who don’t snap to attention and throw out the Bellamy Salute every time their Masters bark at us. Internet Journalists who point out that Sovereignty held by only one nation, even over its fellow members of a Koalition of the Killing, is NOT nationalism but instead Empire.

That no person or nation has an exclusive right to espionage or other forms of violence, like the Chair Force Cowards who sit at their “video game” consoles and direct Predator Strikes against people anywhere in the world, regardless of sex, age, condition, status as civilian or military, citizenship, Even BABIES and then blame the dehumanized “Targets” for “hiding behind Civilian Human Shields”.

I got your “Human Shields” right here in Colorado Springs. Not uncommon anywhere in the world. You put a police station in the center of a civilian population, the pigs are using “human shields” at least according to Pentagon/ State Department logic.

Ft Bliss, Texas, smack in the middle of a metropolitan area including 17 towns in three states (Texas, New Mexico, and Chihuahua Mexico) with a combined population of about three million.

San Diego-TiaJuana has U.S. Military hiding behind more than FOUR Million human shields. The Great Lakes Naval Station in Chicago IL, oooohhhhh…. The CIA, Pentagon, and another web of military stations in among all the Civilian Human Shields from Baltimore to Richmond.

The Brooklyn Naval Yard. Nuff said.

I guess their gander isn’t quite as tasty smothered in goose sauce.

Wikileaks- US State Dept ties Haitian aid to acceptance of wage slavery

When the outgoing Haitian Govt insisted on the whopping huge $5 a DAY minimum wage instead of the three dollars a day being offered by the Corporate-owned U.S.A.I.D., their pet sellouts at State Dept, which has been trying to put a stranglehold on who does or does not do business with Haiti since, like, Forever, endorsed a U.S.A.I.D. report that Haiti wasn’t as badly harmed by the earthquake and thus, the Haitian people owe the aid money back.
Welcome to the Global Plantation.
I wonders, yes I does, how much Gov Scott Walker, Rep Paul Ryan, Gov LePage of Maine, Rick GoodHair of Texas, The Chambers of Commerce, and their Local Anti-worker ToolsTrained Monkeys like Paige, Patchsi, Janis Heuberger, Jeff Crank, Malkin, Tancredo, and the entire City Council, the Mayor and County Commissioners have in their own personal stock portfolios on this?
Slavery by low wage and high debt IS their main way of doing business.
How about it, anti-Union anti-Working Class PUNKS? Sound off on how morally superior and righteous you are in defense of Slavery.

You know how “we’ve got the Taliban on the run”?

Wednesday they were shelling Kabul. That’s… the Capital City, man.
So, really, they’re running, huh? How fast and in which direction? Are they like, running to try to catch up to “us”?
I mean, to hear the Pentagoons and their trained parrots in the State Department tell it, they’re hiding out in caves along the Pakistan border, right? Backs against the wall, fearing the Coward-ass Chair Force with their Drones, right?
In a related note, they “got the No. 2 al-Qa’eda in Afghanistan” earlier in the week… what? How many “#2” senior officers are there?
A quick nasty note for all those who say that they’re fighting for our freedom… Is the reason for us being under a Fascist dictatorship right now because y’all LOST in VietNam?

TSA and Pentagoons play same lame blame game

TSA of course saying that people being angry about their Neo-Gestapo (betcha thought I was gonna say “nazi” huh?) thug tactics would cause delays.
And not their Thuggish heavy-handed State-Sponsored Terrorism. The people, you see, have no right to resent being treated as criminals with no evidence. Guilty until proven innocent.
Then blame anybody who acts any way non-docile or non-subservient for the punishment THEY, the Gesta errrr… Noble Defenders of freedom CHOOSE to inflict on other people. There’s a counter-terrorism standard employed and enjoyed by every dictatorship, including the U.S. Military “free” puppet governments, (not just the Nazis, although they’re the ones most famous for it) where they would round up local civilians in areas where a “terrorist” attack had occurred and simply execute some of them, and made sure to tell the survivors to blame it on the actions of the Resistance Fighters.
That’s the TSA tactic. Also, the Pentagon/State Department Gesta tactic for dealing with Wikileaks. Kill the messenger. Never mind that it’s not the REVELATION of their many murders and miscellaneous misdemeanors, mayhem and malicious malfeasance that’s caused their shared TSA/DoD/DoS/DoJ problems.
It’s the actual commission of their multiple misdeeds that caused the problem. If they didn’t want the name surely it would have been easier to avoid that by not playing the game.
The best way to avoid gaining an undesirable reputation as a Babykiller is simply not actually killing babies.

That way you can point out, hey, no actual dead babies, no babykilling.
But a bunch of dead babies and other Former Humans chewed to pieces by the weapons of ones Armed Forces is bound to rouse suspicions.

Pentagon and State Dept Call leaked information Crimes

Just, you know, not the CRIMES committed by their agents and soldiers, it’s the revelation of those Crimes that’s ‘criminal’.
No word yet on any prosecution against the Rove-Bush Kartel for making false statements that have directly led to the deaths of thousands of United States servicemen (each one a capital offense, according the the Bush Doctrine) and a literally uncounted number of Afghan and Iraqi civilians. Although the Wikileaks reports did add a substantial number to that count.
No, the people who told massive lies to support starting and continuing the Mass Murder Campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, they’re not the subject of the Criminal Investigation, run in large part by Investigators who ARE Criminals.
It’s once again come down to prosecuting people for telling the Truth.

Human Rights Watch part of a Pentagon propaganda campaign against Russia

George SorosThat is GEORGE SOROS, main mover and funder behind the self styled “Human Rights Watch.” The US government is on a bipartisan campaign to label Russia a brutal imperialist country, blaming it for war crimes by Russia’s coming to the defense of its own national defense interests on its Southern border. And heading up its propaganda campaign is the so-called US based and funded human rights organization, Human Rights Watch, which has been bombarding the Western press with accusations against Russia that the country has supposedly been violating international ‘norms of civilized warfare’ in the recent fighting with Georgia.

These HRW accusations are that Russia has been using cluster bombs in the fighting and the one and only source for these claims seems to be Human Rights Watch. Why only they then? And why is this the Human Rights Watch’s focus and not the placing of US nuclear weapons systems in Poland to threaten Russia with a nuclear first strike? Is this just the first instance of such imbalance in commentaries and campaigns by Human Rights Watch, or is this an endemic style of theirs?

The short answer is that this is far from being the first time that Human Rights Watch has been on the front lines of propaganda warfare for the US government, as has been documented well in the past by many. Edward S. Herman for example, a co-thinker and coauthor with Noam Chomsky, wrote this about Human Rights Watch’s record in regard to the US invasion and occupation of Iraq….

‘But despite these and countless other constructive efforts (to avoid a war with Iraq), the organization has at critical times and in critical theaters thrown its support behind the U.S. government’s agenda, sometimes even serving as a virtual public relations arm of the foreign policy establishment. Since the early 1990s this tendency has been especially marked in the organization’s focus on and treatment of some of the major contests in which the U.S. government itself has been engaged—perhaps none more clearly than Iraq and the Balkans. Here, its deep bias is well-illustrated in a March 2002 op-ed by HRW’s executive director, Kenneth Roth, published in the Wall Street Journal under the title “Indict Saddam.”[7] The first thing to note about this commentary is its timing. It was published at a time when the United States and Britain were clearly planning an assault on Iraq with a “shock and awe” bombing campaign and ground invasion in violation of the UN Charter. But Roth doesn’t warn against launching an unprovoked war—though wars of aggression had been judged by the Nuremberg Tribunal to be the “supreme international crime” that “contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”[8] On the contrary, Roth’s focus was on Saddam’s crimes, and provided a valuable public relations gift to U.S. and British leaders, diverting attention from and putting an apologetic gloss on their prospective supreme international crime.’

This is part of a 35 page work tha Herman did in investigating Human Rights Watch’s connections with the US government and the entire publication is well worth reading. See Znet’s copy of Human Rights Watch in Service to the War Party which was published back in February 2007.

Also of note is Michael Barker’s Hijacking Human Rights which like Herman’s much longer analysis, reviews the funding of Human Rights Watch and show how it is so well connected to the propaganda work they do for the US State Department and Pentagon. He focuses on the role of George Soros in creating today’s Human Rights Watch.
Both Barker and Herman (and his coauthors) study this funding of HRW and take it apart in detail and show its role in the structure of HRW’s work in pushing pro- US government propaganda to the press.

It is important for people to know more about Human Rights Watch because many people see ‘human rights’ or ‘united nations’ in a name and they think automatically that that is what these organizations are connected with serving. That is not always the case, no more so than that because the word ‘Christian’ is in a name automatically denotes that leaders of these groups have anything to do with true the ideals and beliefs of Christianity.

Unfortunately many liberals and radical types seem to be falling for it. Liberal web sites like Common Drreams and alternet are running these Human Rights Watch propaganda blasts as if they are somehow the real thing. With a record as bad as Human Rights Watch has with its continual connection of itself with paralleling US war drives, these Progressive folk really should be much more critical minded and less gullible than they are when it comes to reading the HRW material. Just follow the money trail…

Human Rights Watch is a US State Department vehicle, not a genuine human rights organization

The broadening conflict between the US and Russia has brought to the fore the role of the Human Rights Watch in promoting US State Department and Pentagon propaganda. They do this by hiding themselves behind their name, which leads the public to think that they are an independent group of concerned world citizens merely working for human rights observance.

However, a brief visit to their web site alone should set off some alarm bells. Human Rights Watch That’s right! There is no interest shown by this organization about human rights abuses by the US in Iraq or Afghanistan! Somalia, too, is off their radar! These three countries are not mentioned on their web site! At least not on the front page, and I couldn’t locate anything at all on other pages either.

When one sees such a thing and thinks about it a tad, then one begins to wonder about where the funding comes from for a group called Human Rights Watch? Here is Source Watch about the funding…

‘On January 1, 2005 they obtained a five-year, $15 million challenge grant from the Sandler Family Supporting Foundation. “The Sandlers and their children will donate $3 million a year for five years through the Sandler Family Supporting Foundation as long as Human Rights Watch raises $6 million annually in matching funds from first-time donors or existing donors who increase their contributions.” [2]’

So who are the Sandler Family and their Sandler Foundation? We have to go to wikipedia to find out this about Herb Sandler. Yes, he is a billionaire Democratic Party promoter of the group, banker and businessman.

We need to inform the public more about these billionaire promoters of US State Department human rights propaganda who push the Pentagon program for US world dominance. It is not only Human Rights Watch that is a US State Department vehicle for propaganda dissemination, but also the Carter Foundation, where one can quickly find out (if you think to look?) that it too is head up by another billionaire. I am not talking about Jimmy Carter either, but rather John Jay Moore, who is director of the Board of Trustees of the Carter Center, another human rights constantly blathering group respected so much by so many Democratic Party voting liberal types.

So when you hear Human Rights Watch running on about such and such, or so and so, ask yourself, do you really want American billionaires to be defining ‘human rights’ for the world? Is it up to us to just blindly follow the billionaires like Bill Gates, George Soros, et al when they tell us who are supposedly being bad guys, and who are supposedly respecting human rights throughout the world? These American billionaires run US foreign policy even as they might be temporarily a little bit at odds with one president or the other. They are not grand defenders of human rights at all.

So back to Human Rights Watch for one more look at them and what they are really doing in the world about us. Who is behind Human Rights Watch? (2004)

Here below is the part about who is funding the HRW… You will see that there are lots of other American billionaires doing it beside Big Wig Businessman Sandler and his ‘foundation’. Do you think that these are the folks who really back human rights world wide? I don’t, and neither should you.
