The Fall Offensive: the US, France and Brazil

September 13th, 2017

James Petras

The fall of 2017 will witness the most brutal assault on working and middle class living standards since the end of World War II. Three presidents and their congressional allies will ‘revise’ labor legislation, progressive income tax laws and regulations and effectively end the mixed economy in France, the US and Brazil.

Throughout the summer, public opinion has been diverted by US threats to launch new overseas wars, France’s rhetoric about forming a post-Brexit, Berlin-Paris pact, which will remake the European Union, and Brazil’s President Michel Temer’s corruption and crime scandals. These superficial controversies will be overwhelmed by fundamental class conflicts, which promise to alter the present and future structural relations within Western capitalism.

Trump’s Continuing Refusal to Prosecute the 9/11 Funders

September 12th, 2017

Eric Zuesse

By now, it has been well documented that, as I documented on January 29th, "Al Qaeda Funded by Royal Sauds, U.S. Gov’t. Documents”. And, yet, despite the massive documentation which the U.S. Government itself possesses regarding this (and which has been suppressed by the U.S. ‘news’media but is linked-to in that article so that the public can get to see it), both President Barack Obama and now President Donald Trump were and are arrantly ignoring it, and are instead continuing to do the bidding of the royal Sauds, who individually donated (according to the court-testimony in 2014 by Osama bin Laden’s former bookkeeper and financial bagman prior to 9/11) over a million dollars in cash each, to Al Qaeda, leading up to 9/11; and, furthermore, out of these donations, the 9/11 terrorists received their “salaries,” and “without the money of the — of the Saudi, you will have nothing” of Al Qaeda: none of the training, none of the international transportation, none of the weapons, ‘nothing’ at all. That’s what he said, but how much was this incredibly important testimony (in a U.S. court-case) publicized in the U.S. press? And why wasn’t it? Will it now be?

The latest on this, is on September 9th this year, when the New York Times headlined "Trump’s Bid to End Saudi-Qatar Stalemate Ends in Recriminations”, and reported that though President Trump was trying to remain neutral in the Saudi embargo against Qatar, he seems to be siding with the Sauds, and no mention was made in that article, regarding the 9/11 attacks, which were almost entirely financed and perpetrated by Saudis — mainly funded by the royal Saud family, but using jihadists from the network of the Saudi aristocrat Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda.

Nikki Haley: “Political Prostitute”

September 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

She’s a neocon Ziofascist geopolitical know-nothing - the most unqualified ever US UN envoy, an embarrassment to the position she holds.

Paul Craig Roberts calls her an “imbecile,” “mindless” and “stupid…the total antithesis of a diplomat.”

Reportedly she’s Trump’s choice to replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, his departure likely by year end or sooner.

Clearly he wants out. He erred taking the job, the former ExxonMobil CEO sidelined to irrelevancy, hawkish generals in charge of US geopolitical policies.

Haley is a brainless Hillary clone, a recklessly dangerous hawk, militantly anti-Russia, cheerleading America’s wars of aggression, threatening Iran and North Korea.

Russian Warplanes Kill ISIS Emir and War Minister in Deir Ezzor, Syria

September 11th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

On September 8, a Russian Defense Ministry statement said the following:

“After confirming the information received and conducting additional reconnaissance, two Su-34 and Su-35 aircraft of Russia’s Aerospace Forces were scrambled from the Hmeymim air base, which made a pinpoint strike with bunker busting bombs. The air strike destroyed an underground terrorist command post, a communications center and about 40 militants of Daesh” - including war minister Gulmurod Khalimov, dying “from a lethal injury,” adding:

“Effective actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces made it possible to speed up the unblocking of the city of Deir Ezzor and allow the Syrian troops to start its immediate liberation.”

“According to confirmed information, four influential field commanders were among the destroyed militants, including ‘the Sharif (emir) of Deir Ezzor,’ Abu Muhammad al-Shimali who was responsible for finance as well as redeployment of new recruits to Daesh training camps.”

The Latest Israeli Aggression on Syria

September 10th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Over night Wednesday, Israeli warplanes, operating from Lebanese air space, terror-bombed a government scientific research facility in northeastern Tartous - on the phony pretext of targeting a CW facility.

Two deaths were reported along with material damage to the site. According to Syria’s military:

“This aggression comes in a desperate attempt to raise the collapsed morale of the ISIS terrorists after the sweeping victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army against terrorism at more than one front, and it affirms the direct support provided by the Israeli entity to the ISIS and other terrorist organizations.”

Israeli media falsely claimed a chemical weapons facility was struck, citing foreign media reports.

Hurricane Irma Threatens Florida

September 10th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Irma is expected to reach south Florida by Saturday evening into early Sunday morning.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) calls it “a potentially catastrophic category 5 hurricane and will continue to bring life-threatening wind, storm surge, and rainfall hazards to the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas through Saturday.”

“Heavy rainfall is still possible across portions of (Haiti and the Dominican Republic) through Friday. Hurricane conditions will also spread over portions of the north coast of Cuba…through Saturday.”“Severe hurricane conditions are expected over portions of the Florida peninsula and the Florida Keys beginning late Saturday.”

Irma is hugely dangerous, much of Florida potentially affected, especially southern areas. The National Weather Service (NWS) warned of life-threatening hazards, notably from storm surge and large waves generated by heavy winds.

Catastrophic US Hurricanes

September 10th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Hurricane Irma, downgraded to category 4, is expected to make landfall in southern Florida late Saturday or early Sunday morning, its wind strength expected to remain around 150 MPH.

Its life-threatening winds, storm surge and heavy rain got Florida Governor Rick Scott to say “(a)ll Floridians should be prepared to evacuate.”

FEMA administrator Brock Long said “it’s a question of how bad Florida’s going to be impacted and where the storm ends up. (Irma poses) a threat that is going to devastate the United States, either Florida or some of the southeastern states.”

Trailing Irma is Hurricane Jose, elevated to category 4 with winds at around 150 MPH, moving at about 18 MPH. It’s threatening Caribbean states devastated by Irma, expected to pass near the Leeward Islands on Saturday.

What America’s Aristocracy Want

September 10th, 2017

Eric Zuesse

The American aristocracy want inequality of rights, with two basic polar-opposite classes: the ‘elite’, with themselves at the top of everything, and everybody else below them, as subjects to be ruled by them, in such ways as they (themselves, and their fellow ‘elite’) can agree to do. They are convinced that they have earned their high status, in one way or another, and they compete ferociously amongst themselves, to rise even higher within the aristocracy.

Many of the aristocrats think that they are ‘elite’ because they are the richest; many think instead that the ‘elite’ are the smartest or the most cunning; and, a third group think that the ‘elite’ are the “well-born” who descended from ’superior’ people — they believe in an inherited elitist version of Hitler’s generic racist vision, of the ‘Aryans’ versus the ‘non-Aryans’. Instead of being such racists, however, this third category are simply classists, who define their aristocratic rights as being inherited from their ancestors — so, they’re similar to racists, insofar as they are obsessed with geneaology (like racists are), but their obsession is focused instead upon their own family, not upon any “race” at all. They ‘come from the right family’, not from ‘the right race’. This third type of aristocrat believe in inherited rights and obligations. They believe that they possess an inherited right to control the public — the non-aristocrats (the ‘lower class’).

Russia and China v. the West on North Korea

September 8th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

Their positions are world’s apart - evident in Monday’s Security Council meeting on North Korea.

Russia and China urge diplomacy to resolve a deepening crisis. They want tensions defused.

They oppose counterproductive tougher sanctions, threats and saber rattling, encouraging enhanced development of North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Above all, they want war on the Korean peninsula avoided. They sensibly proposed a double-freeze.

In return for Washington, South Korea and Japan halting their provocative military exercises Pyongyang believes are rehearsals for war, Russia and China call for suspension of the DPRK’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Russia’s UN envoy Vasily Nebenzya warned that possible confrontation on the Korean peninsula is “high as never before,” peace experiencing a “serious test.”

He urged the international community to act “calmly and in a balanced way” - not “succumb to emotion.”

He criticized North Korea for undermining regional non-proliferation, posing a major threat to world peace - with possible “dire consequences” for its own country.

ISIS Siege of Deir Ezzor, Syria Broken

September 8th, 2017

I Stephen Lendman

Breaking ISIS’ three-year siege of Deir Ezzor governorate was another milestone toward freeing the area entirely, smashing US-supported ISIS, and achieving another important victory toward Syria’s full liberation.

Miles to go remain toward that goal, but each battlefield triumph advances things closer to eventually defeating Washington’s aim for regime change and control of the country.

A Syrian Army Command statement announced the good news, saying:“After a series of successful operations, units of our armed forces, in cooperation with the supporting and allied forces and backed by the Syrian and Russian air forces, have completed the second phase of their operations deep in the Syrian Badia (desert), and they managed through qualitative operations and heroic actions to break the siege on our people who were besieged for more than three years in Deir Ezzor.”

The achievement “constitutes a strategic shift in the war on terrorism and affirms the ability of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies to defeat the terrorist project in Syria and foil the fragmentation plans of its sponsors and supporters.”
