On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, Lamoreaux Judge Glenn Salter ordered the removal of American child sex slave Lexi Dillon from the United States and into the hands of the foreigner Tustin Police said raped and sodomized her repeatedly. Lexi is a very sweet American nine year old girl whose life has been shattered by court-enforced unwanted sex with her father - according to Tustin Police, medical professionals, and TV news reports. Salter went further than ordering the removal of the American child from her native land, knowing it would be for sex. He issued an additional order that would prevent Lexi’s protective mother, a loving, health professional, from saving her daughter from the sex trade. Under the order, the mom could be arrested for just trying to rescue her daughter from the little girl’s unwanted handlers, people reportedly with criminal backgrounds. Recordings have shown the girl begging to be returned to her mother but the little girl’s pleas have fallen on deaf ears, including the uncaring ears of Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, in whose district Judge Salter hands down edicts judicially trafficking little American children into the foreign sex slave business.
Where are Jerry Brown and Kamala Harris? Millions of Americans have demanded that they act. Yet they sit frozen, intentionally allowing the sex trafficking of young American minors to other parts of the world. The urgency of the situation means that Kamala and Jerry are the only state officials with the emergency authority to save the little American child. Each of these two has the power to stop the deportation of this nine year old American sex slave and take over the case.

The contemporary Arab world is devoid of educated, intelligent and effective leadership. Those occupying the helms of power are mostly the former traditional loyalists tribal agents of the European colonial era uplifted to kingship and absolute authoritarianism to protect the vested foreign interests in the new age of the 21st century politics. The US and West European wish to see the colonial order continuing under new faces of puppets regimes as is the case of Egypt under military dictator General Abdul Fatah Al Sisi replacing a popularly elected governance of President Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Animosity syndrome is being used by all the parties in the Middle East. People of Gaza are political victims and have every right to resist the occupation. What a shame there are no Arab armies to protect the besieged people. There is no Sultan Salah Uddin in the Arab world to rescue the occupied people. After more than 60 years of so called peace talks between Israel and Arabs on Palestine, the current hostilities signal extreme unpredictability in global affairs. There is no qualified rational and balanced approach to peacemaking between the Palestinians and Israel. Where would the peace come from if both parties are constantly engaged in perpetuating animosity and killings while the US and Europeans look more of a spectator than influential participants to break the deafening silence on increased dehumanization of the Palestinian people under occupation.

"On May 27, 1942, SS Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, Deputy Reich Protector of Bohemia and Moravia, had been attacked in Prague by Free Czech agents who were trained in England and brought to Czechoslovakia to assassinate him. They shot at Heydrich as his car slowed to round a sharp turn, then threw a bomb which exploded, mortally wounding him. Heydrich managed to get out of the car, draw his pistol and shoot back at the assassins before collapsing in the street.
Heydrich survived for several days, but died on June 4 from blood poisoning brought on by fragments of auto upholstery, steel, and his own uniform that had lodged in his spleen.
In Berlin, the Nazis staged a highly elaborate funeral with Hitler calling Heydrich "the man with the iron heart."

Israel is at it again. Israel is executing a new phase of its genocidal strategy against Palestinians. Israel’s military genocidal “Operation Protective Edge” is its third major and the most intensified military onslaught, after 2008/09 and 2012 onslaughts, against the largest ever 1.8 million densely populated open air concentration prison camp of the Gaza Strip; Israel’s new-weapons test field, whose population have been starved and bombarded throughout the last seven years.
It is not a secret any more that Zionist Jews had long developed the colonial “Israel Project”; an extremist religiously motivated pure Jewish state of Israel in the heart of the Arabic Middle Eastern region. Palestinians are the Zionist’s main obstacle to this colonial project. The Zionist solution is the ethnic cleansing, forced mass transfer, and total genocide of Palestinians. This genocide is to be graduated for fear of provoking international conscious. Successive Israeli governments have always maneuvered around every peace negotiation and peace offers that could have resolved the Israeli/Arab conflict; even those offers that granted Israel most of Palestine in order to achieve total peace in the whole region.

In his speech to the nation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged yesterday that the war on Gaza is a battle for the existence of the Jewish State. Netanyahu is correct. And Israel cannot win this battle; it cannot even define what a victory might entail. Surely the battle is not about the tunnels or the militants’ underground operation, the tunnels are just weapons of resistance rather than the resistance itself. The Hamas and Gaza militants lured Israel into a battle zone in which it could never succeed and Hamas set the conditions, chose the ground and has written the terms required to conclude this cycle of violence.
For ten days Netanyahu did all he could to prevent an IDF ground operation. He was facing the reality that Israel lacks a military answer to Palestinian resistance. Netanyahu knew that a defeat on the ground would eradicate the little that remains of IDF’s power of deterrence.
Empires are not easy to sustain given the multiple enemies that they provoke: at the international level (imperial rivals and emerging new powers), at the national level (national resistance movements, unreliable clients and untrustworthy ‘Sepoy’ armies) and at the local level (boycotts, sabotage and strikes). Imperial difficulties are multiplied when an empire is in economic decline, (loss of market shares with growing debt), facing domestic unrest as the economic costs to the taxpayers exceed the returns by a substantial margin; and when the political elite is internally divided between ‘militarists’ and ‘free market’ advocates.
The US Empire today is in the midst of a long-term decline, during which it has suffered a series of costly defeats. In addition, Washington has assumed long-term burdensome commitments to allies who have imposed their own ambitions of seeking ‘mini empires’ (Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia).
The US White House has increasingly adopted a military definition of ‘imperial leadership’ at the expense of reconfiguring imperial relations to accommodate potential new political and economic partners.
The people of the United States must work to end the interventionist violence of the U.S. Empire
This is Part I of a two part series on American Empire. Part II will focus on the Empire Economy and how it is failing to work for most Americans as well as most people of the world.
The historian who chronicles US Empire,William Blum, issued his 130th Anti-Empire Report this week. In it he notes that the US, by far, is seen by the people of the world as “the greatest threat to peace in the world today” with 24% taking that view. Only 2% see Russia as such a threat, and 6% see China.
How can we bring about an awareness that sharing is the solution to a planetary crisis, and our last remaining hope for rehabilitating a divided world? Central to this question is the problem of 'isms', in which our complacency has intellectualised itself in order to justify its existence as being normal.
The problems of humanity have reached such an apex that it is now critical for governments to implement the principle of sharing within and between every single country. It is critical on several counts: firstly, to release the joy and creativity that is inherent in every human being but widely suppressed through economic hardship and social breakdown, with levels of depression throughout the world now reaching epidemic proportions. Secondly, it is critical in a literal sense for the millions of men, women and children who live without adequate means for survival, and who are needlessly dying from poverty and disease with each passing day. Furthermore, it is vital that we integrate the principle of sharing into inter-governmental policies if we are to stand a chance of averting environmental catastrophe, for the necessary time for transforming our societies is fast running out. The world itself is sick and in a state of emergency, for which only sharing can provide the necessary healing and remedy. But on all these counts we are left in a quandary, because the crucial missing factor is a collective understanding that sharing is verily the solution to our problems, and our last remaining hope. Without an all-embracing public awareness that sharing is the only way out, it is impossible that this neglected principle can be implemented into world affairs.

The title of this brief article is not a hyperbole or a dramatic overstatement meant to attract attention or gain sympathy. It is rather a reflection of reality.
Indeed, if a holocaust is about annihilating people, especially civilians, the Israeli army, the Wehrmacht of our time, has been exterminating entire Palestinian families-the father, the mother and all the children.
We are not speaking about one isolated incident or a few incidents where one stray missile hit a home inadvertently or children killed as a result of collateral damage. We are rather talking about an official policy endorsed and pursued by the government of Israel to wipe out numerous Palestinian households for the purpose of bringing the Palestinians to their knees.
This is Israel's way of wreaking shock and awe on the defenseless and helpless Palestinians.
Let's talk about the truth of the situation in Ukraine. Forget about all the talk on the MSM. The real truth is that the United States is taking the position of a nation that is trying to stop a civil war in Ukraine and putting the blame on Vladimir Putin and the Russian separatists for shooting down a Malaysian airliner.
That part is, sadly, the truth. What the Media that fills the homes of American citizen's fails to mention is that we started this conflict by supporting the overthrow of a legitimately elected government (although corrupt and inefficient) by force. It was widely publicized on the internet websites that Victoria Nuland authorized the payment of some 5 billion dollars to support a movement, that by some witnesses said, was shooting people in the Maiden district indiscriminately regardless of what side they were on in order to inflame the populace. This was terrorism. We supported this.
