States of Paralysis: America’s Surrender to the Spectacle of Terror

“When our fears have all been serialized, our creativity censured, our ideas “marketplaced,” our intelligence sloganized, our strength downsized, our privacy auctioned; when the theatricality, the entertainment value, the marketing of life is complete, we will find ourselves living not in a nation but in a consortium of industries, and wholly un-intelligible to ourselves except for what we see as through a screen darkly.” -Toni Morrison

(Truthout) – As the link between the media and corporate power becomes more integrated, the visual theater of terror mimics the politics of the “official” war on terror. Echoing the discourse of the “official” war on terror, the violence of extremist groups as well as state-sanctioned and corporate violence are understood almost exclusively within the discourse of moral absolutes pitting good against evil. Whether it is former President George W. Bush’s claim, “You are either with us or against us,” or Osama bin Laden’s injunction, “You are either a believer or an infidel,” this is a repressive binary logic that not only comes from the mouth of too many politicians, but also saturates the media.

Within the current spectacle of politics, fear and the rhetoric of terror prevail. Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, lashes out at leftist critics suggesting they are both losers and drug users. As Glenn Greenwald points out, Gibbs seems to be in denial over a number of substantive criticisms of the Obama administration raised by the left, including the fact they have “done so little about crisis-level unemployment, foreclosures and widespread economic misery,” exhibited an “endless devotion to Wall Street,” expanded “a miserable, pointless and unwinnable war that is entering its ninth year…. claimed the power to imprison people for life with no charges and to assassinate American citizens without due process, intensified the secrecy weapons and immunity instruments abused by his predecessor, … found all new ways of denying habeas corpus…. granted full-scale legal immunity to those who committed serious crimes in the last administration [and] failed to fulfill – or affirmatively broken – promises ranging from transparency to gay rights.

Audio: NATO And The US: Protectors of Global Corporate Capitalism

(GunsNButter) – The American Media Empire of Managed News” with Dr. Peter Phillips.

NATO and the US with all these bases are the protectors of global corporate capitalism, they are the protectors of the world bank, that’s the agenda. Those are the oppressors.

Propaganda model post 9/11 becomes deliberate disinformation; consolidation of media and public relations groups; prison torture across the US; domestic secret detention centers; Operation FALCON mass arrests; suspension of habeas corpus by the Chief Executive; US and NATO as protectors of global capital; structure of inequality maintained by global capital and military empire worldwide; repression that addresses us all; the 1948 Declaration of Human Rights.

The End Of The Rule Of Law

(PersonalLibertyDigest) – Some call the Barack Obama administration progressive. Some call it socialist. Other terms used are Marxist and communist.

I have called it fascist and corporatist in the past. Now I’ll just call it Evil.

That’s because the rule of law is dead in America. Now we have the rule of man—or government agency. The rule of man—or government agency—is a rule of Evil because it knows only the moral bounds of those making the rules. And it’s evident this administration, its appointments and its goals are amoral, if not immoral. Continue reading

New York Times Crawled to Obama for Instructions on Wikileaks Docs

(KurtNimmo) – It is not news that the corporate media is a lapdog for the government. It disseminates propaganda, half-truths, and spin for the government. This became apparent prior to the “leak” of classified documents by Wikileaks earlier in the week.

According to Yahoo’s Michael Calderone, the Obama administration was “very pleased with how the New York Times dealt with its semi-exclusive access to the documents,” writes Alex Pareene for Salon. “Times Washington bureau chief Dean Baquet took reporters Mark Mazzetti and Eric Schmitt to the White House last week to brief the administration on what they planned on publishing.

Clash of the Classes: Does Rush Limbaugh Finally Get It?

Codevilla points out something many of us have know for some time — both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and the White House represent the interests of the ruling class. Continue reading

Once Again, Corporate Media Turns On Bloggers

(KurtNimmo) – In the video clip below, CNN talking heads Kyra Phillips and John Roberts discuss internet journalism and the Sherrod case. “Imagine what would have happened,” says Roberts, “if we hadn’t taken a look at what happened to Shirley Sherrod and plumbed the depths further and found what had been posted on the internet was not in fact reflective of what she said.”

Too bad this self-righteous attitude was nowhere to be found when it was discovered that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. It was obvious well before Bush and the neocons invaded Iraq that Saddam Hussein did not have nuclear and biological weapons. Iraq had nothing to do with al-Qaeda. It did not buy yellow cake in Niger. Continue reading

Video: Bilderberg Corporate Media Mogul Wrote Obama Speech

(PaulWatson) – The fact that Barack Obama is nothing more than a corporate sock puppet, a completely hollow vassal being used and manipulated by his globalist controllers to carry out their agenda, has once again been emphasized with the revelation that corporate media mogul and Bilderberg luminary Mortimer Zuckerman wrote one of Obama’s political speeches.

“Well I voted for Obama, I helped write one of his speeches,” Zuckerman told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto yesterday.

Asked which speech he helped write, Zuckerman responded, “I’d rather not go into that.”

FCC’s Stealth Plan to Censor Internet Content

(KurtNimmo) – In order to control the internet and do so without much notice, the FCC has rolled a censorship plan into its Net Neutrality scheme. Under the fallacious rubric of “consumer protection,” the FCC is calling for the regulation of television and internet broadband.

Kelly William Cobb, writing for Americans for Tax Reform, says “the FCC would begin regulating Internet access for the first time under a completely new regulatory scheme (even though they lack the authority to create it). Meanwhile, the FCC would push regulations – cloaked in the heart-warming language of competition and innovation – mandating that your cable box (known as a set-top box) become a ‘broadband gateway device’ controlling access to your Internet, TV, and phone. The FCC has already started looking at set-top box regulations in their National Broadband Plan.” Continue reading

Is Homeland Security Expecting a Major Terror Attack?

(ActivistPost) – There are so many terrorist drills lately with many more planned over the coming months, you’d think the Department of Homeland Security was preparing for something BIG.  If this were the Bush years we would be on Red Alert and the fear volume would be cranked up to 11. To their credit, the Mainstream Media is still trying to sell fear bundled as white-racist-homegrown-Tea Party-terrorists, but no one’s buying it anymore. Continue reading

Video: Corporate Media Follows Government Orders, Runs Defense For Etheridge Assault

(PaulWatson) – Petrified that a couple of college kids with a flip camera can change the course of a state election, the corporate media and the neo-lib establishment has gone into overdrive in an attempt to spin the Bob Etheridge assault controversy, with some even trying to turn reality on its head in claiming Etheridge was the one being assaulted.

Despite the fact that Etheridge’s shameful reaction to merely being asked, “Do you fully support the Obama agenda?” by a couple of unknown college kids has enraged Internet viewers across the board, the corporate clowns at MSNBC and the rest of the libtard apologists immediately went to work in a lame effort to absolve Etheridge of blame, after being ordered to do so by talking points issued by a Democratic Party official.

Video: The Dying Corporate Media Vilifies Alex Jones, Rand Paul, & The Rising Rage Against The Empire

(TheExcavator) – A new MSNBC documentary called ‘Rise of The New Right’ that is set to air next Wednesday falsely paints the Tea Party’s growing influence in electoral politics as a precursor to a new age of racist rage. The documentary, hosted by Chris screwball Matthews, also targets popular radio show host, documentarian, and one of the internet’s rising stars, Alex Jones. Infowars.com received a copy of the script for the piece from an MSNBC insider, which reveals the program’s soft propaganda, and deliberate lies about the nature of the citizen backlash against the corrupt government in D.C, and the banks and corporations who rule it.

Video: Understanding Israel’s criminal seige of Gaza; one facet of US Orwellian “leadership”

(Examiner) – I previously wrote that if Iran had carried out the Gaza carnage, the US and Israel would have already initiated war against Iran.

In my comprehensive resource article, “Government by dicts,” is the documentation of acknowledged US military/CIA control of corporate media that explains why US public understanding of Israel’s criminal Crime against Peace and War Crimes are unclear.

The following video walks people through the facts. It uses the language of the below published article by Joe Mowrey. UNICEF documented their agreement of the semi-starvation of Gaza’s children through Israel’s blockade, and the UN Chief Commissioner for Human Rights declares the seige unlawful. If you are unfamiliar with the history of Israel attacking the USS Liberty in 1967 with complicity of the US government to use the deaths of US military to justify wars of choice, read this. – Continue reading

FCC Talks Up Sovietization of Media

(KurtNimmo) – The Federal Trade Commission has released a plan dubbed “Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism.” It is nothing if not a government plan to sovietize media in the United States.

The Obama commissariat offer big ideas on how to “re-invent” media that is flagging due to the fact the corporatists insist on embracing a dinosaur business model that worked fine in 1950 but has spelled disaster and bankruptcy in 2010. Government is also worried about the fact millions of people are tuning out of the corporate media wavelength in favor of a dynamic medium on the internet where corporate domination — and government propaganda — is nearly impossible.

Barack Obama: Liar, Warlord, and Corporate Shill – Stephen Lendman

(ThePeoplesVoice) – It shouldn’t surprise because no one gets the top job or any government position of power unless they’re safe, yet, naively, most people thought Obama was different. Many still do.
As a candidate, he promised change, a new course, sweeping government reforms, addressing people needs, and “ensur(ing) that the hopes and concerns of average Americans speak louder in Washington than the hallway whispers of high-priced lobbyists” – the same ones who bought and now own him. He promised peace and delivered war; real health and financial reform, not same old, same old; help for millions losing jobs, homes, hope and futures, not handouts to Wall Street and other industry favorites; regulatory oversight, not the usual incestuous government-industry ties, making disasters like in the Gulf possible, and when they happen conspiring with offenders in coverup, distortion, lies, and a total disregard for the environment, wildlife, and way of life for thousands – let alone permanent damage to a vital ecosystem.

BP Gulf catastrophe typifies corporate behavior in America – Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) – The Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe, now in its 35th day, has struck land, coating tourist beaches, marshes and shorelines with a greasy black filth that metaphorically represents the corporate greed that now dominates the U.S. economy. We are all awash in the dark slime of corporations gone bad, and now we’re paying the price for allowing these companies to dominate our media, our government and our entire economy.

You might think government regulators could have prevented all this, but that’s hardly the case. This disaster isn’t merely about a government regulation failure; it’s about what happens when you let corporations rule Washington. Continue reading

Obama’s Gulf Eco-Catastrophe, Far Worse than Katrina, More Like a Hiroshima; Emergency Legislation Needed

(OpEdNews) – History will view Obama’s response as too little, too late, too passive. New findings by a research vessel with a grant that ran out today show walls of oil-saturated death, miles long and wide, depleting oxygen from ocean water.

Obama must commandeer BP’s resources, pass immediate legislation ELIMINATING all limits on ALL corporate liability for damages, & fund at least a billion dollars of emergency research & science funding for assessing and analyzing all aspects of the gulf catastrophe– marine, estuary, economic.

(Rense) – Spill? The corporate media continues to call the volcano of continuous gushing oil, in the Gulf, a spill. How insulting. A volcano that shoots out a million gallons of crude oil a week is hardly a spill.

The common definition of a spill is the liquid that fell out of a container, a one time occurrence, not a massive flow that has no known end. An oil tanker can spill oil; but not Mother Earth, who has been and still is continuously gushing oil from 35,000 feet from within her bowels. Continue reading

Licensed To Kill: Andrew Witty Stars In Pharmakeia Royale

(HealthWyze) – GlaxoSmithKline has just started to settle lawsuits, because their diabetes drug Avandia causes heart attacks.  This minor complication would be resolved in a criminal court on murder charges if any of us mere mortals gave people drugs which killed them, but GlaxoSmithKline has a license to kill.  They like to call it F.D.A. approval, but we know what it is.  It’s somewhat coincidental that their cancer drugs cause diabetes, and then the diabetes drugs cause heart disease.  The corporate agenda is unmistakable.

The F.D.A. recommended that Avandia be removed from the market after it caused a “substantial excess number” of heart attacks and heart failure.  How many heart attacks are acceptable?  How many have to die before their deaths are counted as a ‘excess’?  How many deaths before their license to kill is revoked?

Reuters reports that Avandia is no longer a big product for GlaxoSmithKline, as the patent on the drug will run out in just two years.  It is convenient that the public is notified of the danger only as the patent expires.  That will teach those generic drug manufacturers to ride the gravy train!  You see, drug companies don’t make decisions on which drug is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ based upon efficacy or safety.  The decisions are made based solely upon profit-making ability.  Avandia has become a P.R. problem, and it’s not making that much money anyway.  They might as well kill those generic manufacturers while bailing out of the Avandia market.

In its first-quarter financial report last month, Glaxo increased the reserves budgeted for legal matters by 210 million pounds ($325 million), some of which is expected to go towards settling Avandia cases.

NHS spending on ‘chemical cosh’ drugs to treat hyperactivity has soared by two-thirds to £31million in just four years, new figures revealed yesterday.
Nearly 750,000 prescriptions are now being doled out every year for Ritalin and similar drugs – most of them to children.
The surge triggered concerns that children are being unnecessarily drugged as poor discipline is increasingly seen as a medical issue.
Teachers warned today that prescribing calming drugs was often cheaper and easier than ‘talking cures’ and parenting support. Read More Here

A new analysis just published in the journal Cancer concludes that a significant proportion of terminally ill cancer patients spend most of their final days and weeks subjected to grueling radiation therapy (radiotherapy).

A Frightful Despotism – Mark West

(Infowars) – In her infancy, or at least throughout the term of her first President, the United States maintained an aura of non-partisanship. George Washington avoided association with political parties.

Now I’m not saying that parties, or factions, didn’t exist. They most certainly did, along similar, but not the same, principles to those of the two major parties today. A basic contention existed over the size and influence of central government. Seems those battle lines have remained throughout each ages of our nation’s history.

However, President Washington was opposed to political parties. He saw a sinister nature to partisanship. Washington feared the perpetuation of “the most horrid enormities” as the factions battled bitterly for domination, competition, and vengeance while ignoring what was best for the nation.

There is an interesting article in Canada’s Globe & Mail about the lack of growth in the US money supply. Ignoring for the moment that the quantity of dollars in circulation is significantly underreported, it observes:

“The money supply in the United States is doing something that almost never happens: it’s shrinking, after taking into account inflation. Similar episodes in the past have usually been scary times for investors. Declines in the amount of money in circulation have coincided with recessions, and some analysts looking at the current trend say it is a harbinger of trouble. Despite signs that the U.S. is in recovery, they worry that the money supply numbers indicate the economy remains vulnerable to the feared double-dip downturn, or is close to experiencing deflation.”
