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]

Obama breaks downObama breaks down while thanking supporters
Obama is emotional at his final campaign event in IowaObama is emotional at his final campaign event in Iowa
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.

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.

Israel's Likely Coalition Partner Government Threatens Humanity

January 27th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

Extremist Israel officials favor wealth, power, privilege and dominance. Tuesday's elections hardened fascism.

Palestinians have the greatest cross to bear. Jews have their own. Humanity very much is threatened. More on that below.

Expect occupation harshness to be worse than ever. Palestinians are blamed for Israeli crimes. World leaders target them.

On January 20, Electronic Intifada contributor Amena Saleem said Britain's Foreign Office blames Gazans "for bringing suffering on themselves." Doing so exposed its "one-sided view."

Is Opposing Obama's 'Kill List' & Drone Missile Murders Being Anti-Black?

January 26th, 2013

Larry Pinkney

“You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.” -Malcolm X [el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz]

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.” -Frantz Fanon

It is perhaps the irony of ironies in this 21st century that the United States power structure has deliberately re-installed as its imperial leader a man of so-called 'color' who, under the auspices of his very own extrajudicial and infamous 'kill list,' has appointed unto himself the right to murder whomever he chooses in this nation or anywhere else in the world.

Wall Street's in Good Hands with Mary Jo White

January 26th, 2013

by Stephen Lendman

On January 24, Obama nominated Mary Jo White as SEC head. "You don't want to mess with Mary Jo," he said. Others have different views. More about her below.

Washington is Wall Street occupied territory. Regulatory oversight is absent. Earlier New Deal reforms are gone.

The Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 followed the Securities Act of 1933. Under the Constitution's interstate commerce clause, it required offers and security sales to be registered. State "blue sky laws" previously governed them.

The 1934 law regulated secondary trading of financial securities. It established the SEC under Section 4 to enforce the new act.

Later came the 1939 Trust Indenture Act, the 1940 Investment Company Act, the same year Investment Advisors Act, Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002, the 2006 Credit Rating Agency Reform Act, and Dodd-Frank in 2010.
