Did the CIA engineer Houla massacre?

A few days ago, a horrific event occurred in Houla, Syria when at least 108 people — including many women and children — were savagely massacred.
Instantly, the corporate-controlled western mainstream media and the puppet political prostitutes of the Top One Percent were all over the story, unanimously accusing the brutal dictatorship of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad of being behind the massacre. (That Assad is a brutal dictator does not alter the fact that he still enjoys the support of a large segment of his people). Under immense Amerik-k-kan pressure, even the United Nations Security Council condemned the Syrian government for being the alleged mastermind of the massacre.
Now, however, several days later, there has been a UN investigation. And what did the investigators find? They found that fewer than 20 of the victims were killed by the Syrian armed forces. At least 88 — including most of the women and children who were slaughtered — were not killed by Syrian government forces. So who killed them? Continue reading “Did the CIA engineer Houla massacre?”

The unrepentant evil of the Top 1 Percent

There have been two grand revelations over the past few days that should shatter the complacency of the majority of Americans and the impenetrable gullibility of that vast swath of Amerik-k-kans still brainwashed into believing in the alleged good of corporate capitalism and the alleged evil of socialism.
It was revealed on Friday that the average base pay of Amerik-k-kan corporate CEOs reached $9.6 million last year, an increase of a whopping six percent from the previous year. How many working-class Americans — the people who actually create that corporate wealth, the people who desperately need six-percent pay hikes, and the people who are far more deserving of such pay hikes — got six percent raises last year? I would venture to guess not very many. Continue reading “The unrepentant evil of the Top 1 Percent”

Teabaggers start coming out of the closet

It was less than two years ago that the Republican Teabaggers — totally controlled by megalomaniacal mega-billionaire brothers — or maybe they’re really gay lovers? — Charles and David Koch — managed to get 50 of their ilk elected to the United States Congress. And when the Kochsuckers’ pet pols first convened in Washington to celebrate at the end of 2010, the first thing they all did — each and every one of them — was swear an oa th that none of them would ever, under any circumstances, accept campaign contributions from lobbyists.
For the next 20 months — up until today — these same Republican Teabaggers have spun themselves into contortions trying to do the bidding of Charlie and Davie Koch and their fellow billionaires — by doing absolutely every single thing that was asked of them by any corporate lobbyist whosoever.
Well, it’s payback time now and every one of those 50 Teabaggers elected to Congress in 2010 is now among the top 60 fundraisers — from corporate lobbyists — from among more than 800 congressional candidates. So much for their promises! Continue reading “Teabaggers start coming out of the closet”

Canada declares war on the unemployed

It has been less than a year since ideological zealot and extreme right-wing Conservative Stephen Harper won a majority federal government in Canada, despite the fact that more than 60 percent of voters voted against the corrupt regime that had clung to power for more than half a decade previously — thanks to the unstinting parliamentary support of the supposedly centrist Liberals –, and already some of the ugliest elements of the Tories’ hidden agenda are beginning to emerge.
A couple of weeks ago, Tory Finance Minister Jim Flaherty introduced in the House of Commons a 400-page omnibus Bill purporting to be simply a budget Bill.
Among the many destructive gems hidden in this massive, draconian Bill is a savage crackdown — not on the gangster banksters Harper secretly bailed out in 2008 at a cost to Canadians of close to $200 billion or the corporate robber barons who are sitting on $500 billion in almost totally untaxed cash reserves that they are refusing to invest in order to create quality jobs for Canadians but on the jobless victims of these corporate capitalist thugs, victims who are already struggling mightily just to survive.
The first hint of just how rabid the assault on the unemployed would be came a couple of weeks ago when Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, another congenital liar blinded by his own extreme right-right ideology — like every other member of this sublimely corrupt and woefully incompetent cabinet –, had the audacity and guile to declare on national television that “there are no bad jobs in Canada. Every job in Canada is a good job.” Continue reading “Canada declares war on the unemployed”

Just how really backward is Amerikkka?

Unlike the great imperial dynasties that now litter the trashbin of history, the Amerikkkan Empire was born at a time that gave it a momentous opportunity to lead the world into a “golden era” of peace, prosperity, freedom and equality never witnessed at any time in the past — and quite possibly never again attainable in the future.
But, alas, the socioeconomic elite — the Top One Percent — that has always controlled Amerikkka, chose instead to let their own insatiable greed, their own desire for total power throughout the world, their own lust for blood and destruction, and their own psychopathic disregard for the well-being or even the survival of others — lead them to piss away that golden opportunity.
The Top One Percent could not have done it alone, however. It required the uninformed acquiescence of a populace — the Other 99 Percent — the poor, the working class and the middle class — to be able to pull this off. Continue reading “Just how really backward is Amerikkka?”

Quebec a model for all North America

If the beleaguered but persistent supporters of the rapidly growing Occupy movement across the U.S. and Canada need a source of inspiration on some of their darkest days, they have no further to look than the predominantly French-speaking Canadian province/nation of Quebec.
For 105 consecutive days now, there have been daily mass protests in Montreal — and increasingly frequently in much smaller Quebec City as well.
And while the protests started out as simply a movement by Quebec university students to stop their provincial/national government from increasing tuition rates by 75 percent over the next five years, they have now evolved into something much, much greater.
The student leaders admitted as much when they told a press conference a couple of weeks ago: “This is no longer just about tuition rates. This is just the beginning of what will be a massive campaign to overhaul Quebec’s entire economic and social status quo.” Continue reading “Quebec a model for all North America”
