Waging War on Immigrants

January 31st, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

Earlier articles discussed Washington's racist war on immigrants. It's longstanding. It mocks notions of welcoming tired, poor, wretched masses yearning to breathe free. White supremacist Judeo/Christian extremism prevents it. Poor and desperate people aren't welcome. People of color are scorned. Exploiting unwanted masses is policy. Helping them is verboten.

America never was beautiful and isn't now. Wealth, power, privilege, and dominance alone matter. Equity and justice are four-letter words. The New York Times claims otherwise. On January 28, it headlined "Senators Offer a Bipartisan Blueprint for Immigration," saying:

They "agreed on a set of principles for a sweeping overhaul of the immigration system, including a pathway to American citizenship for 11 million (undocumented) immigrants that would hinge on progress in securing the borders and ensuring that foreigners leave the country when their visas expire."

Holocaust Day Backfires

January 30th, 2013

By Gilad Atzmon

The UK Jewish Lobby is in a state of panic - the Holocaust Memorial Day boomerangs. If anything it turns the floodlight on the deeply problematic inclinations that are sadly inherent to Jewish political culture and collectivism.

Last weekend it became clear that in the light of the crimes that are committed by the Jewish State in the name of the Jewish People, many Brits find it somehow difficult to genuinely empathise with Jewish suffering. If anything, it is the other way around, more and more people expect the Jews and their State to become more empathic.

The day before Holocaust Memorial Day, MP David Ward expressed his dismay with the lack of Jewish empathy. He wrote on his blog:

“I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”

Obama Prioritizes Targeted Killings

January 29th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article said Obama decided who lives or dies. His kill list chooses targets. He designated himself judge, jury and executioner.

He chose John Brennan as new CIA director. He's currently Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. He's Obama's chief counterterrorism advisor.

He heads the administration's Murder, Inc. agenda. As CIA head, he'll do more than advise. He'll have direct control. Expect him to take full advantage.

Anyone can be targeted anywhere in the world. US citizens are vulnerable. They can be murdered for any reason or none at all.

Drone wars are prioritized. They're becoming Washington's weapon of choice. They're instruments of state terror. They operate round-the-clock.

They sanitize killing on the cheap. Teams of remote control warriors operate computer keyboards and multiple monitors. They target faceless enemies half a world away or nearby.

Targeting Iran Continues

January 29th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

Israel's likely coalition partners assure it. Spurious Iranian threats are hyped. What began years ago continues.

Washington and Israel want puppet leaders replacing independent ones in power. At issue is unchallenged regional dominance.

On January 27, Haaretz headlined "Netanyahu: Iran preparing for another Holocaust."

At Sunday's cabinet meeting, he told ministers that "holocaust denial is continued energetically by a central state in the world."

"Not by groups. Not by single individuals. Not by marginal elements."

"(B)y Iran, whose leaders on a daily basis and at the United Nations and any other platform deny that the Holocaust occurred, while at the same time they prepare what they believe will be an additional Holocaust: The destruction of the Jewish state."

Tim Geithner's Legacy of Shame

January 28th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

From January 26, 2009 - January 25, 2013, he was Obama's Treasury Secretary. He and Fed chairman Bernanke engineered crisis conditions.

Bankers profited hugely. They still do. Ordinary people were scammed. Geithner's gone. His legacy speaks for itself. His background showed what to expect. He spent three years at Kissinger Associates.

From 1988 - 2002, he held various Treasury posts. He left to become Council on Foreign Relations international economics department senior fellow.

From 2001 - 2003, he was IMF Policy Development and Review director. He left to become New York Fed president.

Medical Negligence in Israeli Prisons

January 28th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

Palestinians in Israeli prisons are grievously abused. Conditions resemble gulag hell. Treatment is deplorable. Fundamental human rights are violated.

Geneva's Common Article 3 requires "humane treatment for all persons in enemy hands, specifically prohibit(ing) murder, mutilation, torture, cruel, humiliating and degrading treatment (and) unfair trial(s)."

Fourth Geneva's Article 56 states:

"To the fullest extent of the means available to it, the Occupying Power has the duty of ensuring and maintaining, with the cooperation of national and local authorities, the medical and hospital establishments and services, public health and hygiene in the occupied territory, with particular reference to the adoption and application of the prophylactic and preventive measures necessary to combat the spread of contagious diseases and epidemics. Medical personnel of all categories shall be allowed to carry out their duties."

R U Sandy or R U Hooked

January 27th, 2013

By Melanie Lamport

Gun Control takes center stage following another in a series of horrific mass shooting. The latest one at the Sandy Hook Elementary School left 20 children dead in Newtown Connecticut.

The corporate controlled media and President Barack Obama have launched a full-scale attack on the 2nd amendment in response to the latest episode of a lone-nut gunman going on a rampage-killing spree. [1]

Look Ma, no tears..."Beautiful little kids" (wipes tear and pauses)

President Obama, wiping a non-existent tear, wants an administration wide task force to help him curb gun violence, BUT only in America. Obama continues to order the child-killing drone massacres overseas. And in one of those coincidences that don’t happen very often, yesterday (January 13, 2013), a prominent American blogger and computer prodigy Aaron Swartz, who spoke against the targeted killing operations carried out by US assassination drones, was found dead in New York City.

The mass shootings in Tucson, Virginia Tech, Columbine, Sandy Hook, Sikh Temple, and the Aurora Theater, are so full of anomalies, inconsistencies and unanswered questions that you have to wonder if it was an Alien Entertainment production about the most unrealistic assassination that humans on Earth would believe. Operation Rampage Killing

Where are the bodies or photos of bodies or crime scene photos? What about a surveillance video or still images from the scene or a timeline that makes some sense? [2]

Empire Project Failing in Syria Says French Foreign Minister

January 27th, 2013

Michael Collins

The survival of the Syrian government represents a major failure of the empire project to recolonize and dominate energy rich Middle Eastern and North African states.

In an abrupt change from months of anticipatory triumphalism, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius admitted that Syrian President Bashar Assad will not be leaving power any time soon. This is a radical departure from the NATO script and that of their stenographers in the corporate media. We've been fed a mix of articles over the past months predicting Assad's imminent demise, filled with speculation on how post-Assad Syria will look after he's gone. (Image)

Reuters reported the Fabius remarks on January 24:

"Things are not moving. The solution that we had hoped for, and by that I mean the fall of Bashar and the arrival of the [opposition] coalition to power, has not happened."

Obama's War on Whistleblowers

January 27th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

At perhaps the most perilous time in world history, exposing vital truths takes on greater urgency than ever.

Freedom in America is endangered. Truth telling and dissent increasingly aren't tolerate. Whistleblowers are called threats to national security.

The ACLU says "leak detection, prevention, and punishment is cause for alarm."

"National security must be protected and properly classified information must be kept safe. However, this cannot be at the expense of a free, open and informed society."

Intifada Activism Needed

January 27th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

Six-five years of mass slaughter, destruction, dispossession, occupation, persecution, apartheid, and slow-motion genocide is enough.

Freedom requires committed activism. Liberation depends on working for what Israel denies. The alternative is more of what's too intolerable to bear.

Daily headlines reveal what Palestinians endure:

IDF invades Jenin pre-dawn. Homes were stormed and ransacked. Two Palestinian youths were arrested. Nearby villages were targeted. Nonviolent Palestinians were kidnapped.

I began thepeoplesvoice.org fourteen years ago to provide people with a place to speak out on the issues and to awaken others to the the great truths and the great injustices. I think if enough people know what is happening we can change it. 

It takes eight to sixteen hours a day, seven days a week to properly administrate the site. The ads on the site barely offset the cost of the internet connection. The financial situation has become very difficult and more time must be focused on survival, leaving less time to post new and important content.

I am dedicated to truth and making this a better world. I believe positive change can be achieved if more people join the fight. I still have strength to continue, but I can't do it alone.
