Black Child Poverty at Record High

Obama’s Legacy: Black Child Poverty at Record High

A new study by the Pew Research Center shows that Black children have been reduced to record levels of poverty over the last several years. Black kids are four times as likely to be poor as white children, with Black child poverty now cresting at 38.3 percent. Only 10.7 percent of white children live in poverty. Asian children are the least poor of all, at only 10.1 percent. Hispanic kids are about three times more likely than whites to live in poverty-stricken households, at 30.4 percent…

During the Great Recession, Black household wealth fell to one-twentieth that of median white households… Half of Black households… had virtually no family worth at all. That means the children of such households began life economically naked to the world.

The closely related culprit is Black unemployment, which has been stuck at roughly twice that of whites for more than two generations, then hit record levels during the Great Recession, and stayed there for longer than any other group.

The consequences of the economic crash and the Obama administration’s response to it, are now borne by Black children, who start off life in an historically worse condition than any other major group, and more vulnerable than the Black kids of previous generations. This is President Obama’s legacy, as the chief executive who began his first term with a blanket refusal to target federal programs to Black people, who had suffered the worst from the deliberate policies of his friends on Wall Street…

Treachery!! Предательство!!

The feared “Soviet” secret service, the KGB, was always controlled by the the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency of the USA). As such, the CIA — KGB played an insidious and decisive role in the destruction of the Soviet Union.

The KGB’s successor in conspiracy, the “Russian” secret service FSB (ФСБ — Федеральная служба «безопасности» России) is likewise controlled by the CIA.

Among the manifold CIA – FSB tasks in stifling Arnold Lockshin is to block almost all commentaries sent in response to my material on the internet.

Dictatorship USA – Part 8

Silent Terror

In “Silent Terror” (https://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com/) we outlined the vicious campaign of harassment and terror against us organized by the US secret political police – in this case, most likely the FBI.

We are not going to repeat – or add to — that history here. What needs to be emphasized is that the Lockshins – US citizens – had no rights whatsoever. No Constitution, no Bill of Rights, no right to face our tormentors, no trial by jury, no presumed innocence until proven guilty, NO DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS WHATSOEVER!

It would be absolutely futile to try to take any kind of action against professional US government persecutors/terrorists. Even if I could return to the United States and file a suit (impossible!), I would not get to first base. The monstrous and vicious US lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture and mass murder apparatus.

DICTATORSHIP!

When one discusses the real United States of America, one must recognize that there are no legal, constitutional, humane, moral, ethical etc. limits to what the masters of the US can do. And they hide their monstrous deeds in the name of “democracy.”

Участие американских психологов в пытках заключённых

Независимый доклад пролил свет на участие американских психологов в пытках заключённых

Американская ассоциация психологов (APA), насчитывающая более 130 тыс. человек по всей Америке, на протяжении многих лет опровергает причастность её членов к проводившимся военными и спецслужбами США пыткам и допросам после терактов 11 сентября. Однако, как пишет газета Guardian, собранная бывшим помощником прокурора Дэвидом Хоффманом информация позволяет убедиться, что дела обстояли совсем по-другому…

В результате независимого расследования удалось установить, что члены Американской ассоциации психологов (APA) привлекались ЦРУ и военными США к участию в пытках заключённых. Чтобы позволить членам Ассоциации проводить допросы с применением насилия, руководством были внесены изменения в этический кодекс организации…

Этический кодекс Ассоциации был пересмотрен таким образом, чтобы позволить психологам участвовать в допросах и даже изобретать и внедрять новые формы пыток…

Психологи, прикомандированные к Управлению по медицинским услугам в ЦРУ, содействовали проведению допросов с применением насилия. Их методики затем перекочевали от разведывательного ведомства к военному. Некоторые психологи были включены в состав «консультационных групп по поведенческим наукам» — они выступали советниками-консультантами для проводивших пытки в тюрьме в Гуантанамо…

В то, что в результате на скамье подсудимых окажутся именно представители силовых ведомств, Guardian не верит: скорее всего, официальное расследование, если таковое будет, коснётся лишь руководства и членов АРА…

Напомним, 9 декабря 2014 года в США было опубликовано 500-страничное резюме доклада комитета по разведке сената США по поводу пыток, которые применялись ЦРУ в отношении подозреваемых в терроризме. Весь документ целиком насчитывает 6 тыс. страниц, его составление заняло четыре года и обошлось в $40 млн. При подготовке было исследовано более 6 млн страниц документов…

Dictatorship USA – Part 7

Murder US-Style

The massive power of the United States’ lie, spy, provocation, subversion, terror, torture and mass murder apparatus was plainly evident in the murders of US President John Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King

Kennedy was murdered in Dallas, Texas in November 1963 by a US secret political police conspiracy. While Kennedy was a vehement anti-communist, he was not sufficiently aggressive and vicious for the US ruling elite.

As Kennedy came from the marriage of two big-time criminal families, he was originally considered perfectly safe for US imperialism (which in fact he always was!) and provided a new, youthful and even intellectual image for the United States.

With his father’s connections and fortune, Kennedy – mistakenly, as subsequent events proved – felt relatively independent to pursue a more restrained and subtle and moderately less aggressive course for US imperialism. He was concerned about the threat of nuclear war and saw that the long-term aspirations of US imperialism were being damaged by incessant aggression against other countries and rampant US super-exploitation in the world.

As President, John Kennedy sent US military “advisors” to fight against the Vietnamese people, but refrained from approving a massive military invasion, which was advocated by the dominant elements in the US ruling elite. After Kennedy was assassinated, the Gulf of Tonkin provocation was concocted and JFK’s successor Lyndon Johnson dispatched hundreds of thousands of US troops to Vietnam and conducted a vicious and murderous bombing campaign against that country.

Kennedy likewise gave the go-ahead for the CIA-sponsored invasion of Cuba in April, 1961 (which had been planned and organized by the previous Eisenhower administration), but he resisted sending in US military forces to supplant the defeated counter-revolutionaries in Cuba. This refusal was the last straw for the ultra-reactionary US ruling elite, and the CIA plotted and carried out Kennedy’s assassination.

The viciousness of the United States secret political police was further demonstrated by their setting up one of their own agents, Lee Harvey Oswald, as the fall guy for Kennedy’s murder. Before Oswald could speak out in his own defense, he was killed by another US agent right in the Dallas police station. To “investigate” Kennedy’s murder, a federal commission was set up, which of course fully “verified” the absurd postulate that a “jealous” Oswald – with unbelievable accuracy and speed and at a great distance — shot the President with an obsolete hunting rifle.

In 1968, John Kennedy’s brother Robert, who was then himself running for president and was set to investigate the real reason for his brother’s death, was likewise murdered by the United States’ lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture and mass murder apparatus.
//////////////////////////////////////////

The US secret political police murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is discussed in our book “Silent Terror” (p. 72-74), https://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com/ and will not be repeated here.
///////////////////////////////////////////

These murders of a United States president and the most important American people’s leader in the 20th century – King — occurred with complete impunity and cover-up.

No Constitution, Bill of Rights, “inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” (US Declaration of Independence) had or can have the slightest significance. What happened to these leaders could happen to anyone else.

“Democracy” anyone?

Violent Crime Is Surging In Major U.S. Cities

Violent Crime Is Surging In Major U.S. Cities And The Economy Is Not Even Crashing Yet

Don’t let anyone tell you that crime is going down in America.  All over the United States, rates of violent crime in our major cities are increasing by double digit percentages.  Murders are way up, shootings are way up and rapes are way up.  So what is behind this sudden spike in crime?  In Baltimore, authorities are pointing to the racial tensions that were stirred up by the riots that erupted in protest to the death of Freddie Gray.  But what about the rest of the country?  From coast to coast, we are witnessing a dramatic increase in violent crime, and the economy is not even crashing yet.  So what is going to happen when the next great economic crisis hits us, unemployment skyrockets, and people really start hurting?

I was very surprised to learn that the murder rate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has more than doubled so far this year…

Milwaukee, which had one of its lowest annual homicide totals in city history last year, has recorded 84 murders so far this year, more than double the 41 it tallied at the same point last year.

And of course Milwaukee is far from alone.  All over the U.S., violent crime is jumping dramatically.  Here is more from USA Today…

Baltimore, New Orleans and St. Louis have also seen the number of murders jump 33% or more in 2015. Meanwhile, Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city, has seen the homicide toll climb by 19% and the number of shooting incidents increase in the city by 21% during the first half of the year.

In all the cities, the increased violence is disproportionately impacting poor and predominantly African-American and Latino neighborhoods. In parts of Milwaukee, the sound of gunfire has become so expected that about 80% of gunfire detected by ShotSpotter sensors aren’t even called into police by residents, Flynn said.

The crimes seem to be getting more brutal as well.

The homicide total for Baltimore for the year (increased) to at least 154, according to police news releases. That’s an increase of more than 40 percent compared with the same time last year. Shootings have increased more than 80 percent. The city has seen a spike in violence since the April death of Freddie Gray after his arrest. The incident received widespread national attention and sparked unrest across Baltimore…

According to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, overall crime in the city is up by more than 12 percent so far in 2015…

For the first time in more than a decade, overall crime is up in Los Angeles through the first six months of the year, rising by more than 12%, according to figures released Wednesday.

But it isn’t just murder rates that are surging.  Sex crime rates are also on the rise all over America.  The following is an excerpt from a recent New York Post article entitled “Sex crimes are soaring in NYC“…

Sex crimes are soaring in the city, with an especially frightening spike taking place during the past few weeks, The Post has learned.

Misdemeanor sexual assaults as of Sunday night this year increased by 20 percent over the same period in 2014, from 1,003 to 1,203.

But they shot up 75 percent for the week ending Sunday compared to the same week last year — from 45 to 79.

I believe that we have reached a turning point. I believe that we have entered a period of time when violent crime in the United States is going to start skyrocketing – especially once the next major economic downturn arrives.

Meanwhile, budget cuts are forcing police forces to cut back all over the nation.  For example, the number of patrol officers in the city of Detroit has been reduced by 37 percent in the last three years alone…

Dictatorship USA – Part 6A

Big-Time PoliticsDictatorship USA – Part 6A

In the real politics of US imperialism, there are only two political parties. In fact, the Republicans and Democrats are twin parties of the US ruling class. Barack Obama was elected as “the change you can believe in,” as the alternate to the much-despised George Bush. And what the American people and the world obtained was George Bush Obama.

There is no difference between the Bush and Obama politics. Shifts in this or that policy may occur, but that is basically due to the fact that domestic and especially world reality does not always concur with the evil designs of US imperialism. That is to say, that tactical shifts in US policy sometimes occur, but these are rarely due to the change of face in the White House, much less because of the election of this or that senator, congressman, etc.

In the US, it is prohibitively expensive for anyone but the financially endowed to run for major political office. Moreover, the election laws are rigged to make it extremely difficult for genuine independents to even get on the ballot.

In parallel with the mass media, there are the politician “outliers,” who make relatively progressive pronouncements or even introduce progressive bills. Nothing comes of their phony efforts; nothing is supposed to come of them. But they give the false impression of “democracy:” “see, we have so-and-so taking up our cause; all is not lost.” Fakery!

Most importantly, all candidates – for whatever office, even on a purely local level – are vetted by the US secret political police. If one or another aspirant does not pass muster, he can be eliminated by conventional means or by the devices of hidden psychological warfare.

Самая опасная страна в мире

Олег Царев о державе, которая на самом деле угрожает человечеству

Россия — это угроза номер один для всего мира.

Есть ИГИЛ*, есть Эбола, но опаснее всех Россия.

Во всяком случае, так говорят американцы. Генерал Данфорд, командующий морской пехотой США, и Дебора Джеймс, министр ВВС США, буквально в один голос заявили на днях, что «Россия — это самая большая угроза безопасности» и для Америки, и для всей Земли.

Очень хорошо.

Но хочется вспомнить некоторые исторические факты.

В 1945 году произошла первая — и пока единственная в истории — атомная бомбардировка одной страны другой страной. Кто же это сделал? Россия (Советский Союз?) Нет, Америка.

Тогда же, в 1945 году, в целях устрашения бомбардировщики уничтожали в Германии подчистую целые города — убивая не нацистов или военных вермахта, а сотни тысяч обычных людей. Кто же это делал? Советские солдаты? Нет, это делали Америка и Англия.

В 1968 году Советский Союз ввел войска в Чехословакию. Погибло 108 чехов.

Тогда же, во второй половине 1960-х и начале 1970-х, Америка воевала во Вьетнаме. Погибло более трех миллионов вьетнамцев.

В ту же эпоху оба государства — США и Советский Союз — поддерживали дружественные себе страны по всему миру.

От Советского Союза, в частности, помощь получали: Куба, создавшая одну из лучших систем здравоохранения в мире, Ливия, чью социальную систему можно было назвать лучшей в Африке, Никарагуа, где революционные партизаны свергли образцовую в своей гнусности диктатуру Сомосы.

От Америки помощь получали: та же диктатура Сомосы, генерал Пиночет в Чили, чьи репрессии, пытки и убийства оппозиционеров стали символом времени, генерал Сухарто в Индонезии, который в «борьбе с коммунизмом» уничтожил больше полумиллиона собственных граждан, и еще многие их «коллеги».

В 1980-е годы Советский Союз вел войну в Афганистане, и одновременно — постоянно сотрудничал с Сирией, Ираком и другими арабскими странами. На Восток СССР принес высшее образование, промышленность, права женщин, медицину, военное развитие.

В последние полтора десятилетия в том же Афганистане, Сирии, Ираке — активно действует Америка. Она принесла туда развал целых государств, бесконечную войну всех против всех, резню, хаос и неизбежный религиозный фундаментализм в финале «освобождения».

В 1990-е годы уже Россия, оказавшись наследником СССР, мирно вывела свои войска из Восточной Германии и Прибалтики, добровольно закончив «Холодную войну».

Америка в то же самое время уничтожила Югославию, впервые с 1945 года устроив бомбежки европейской страны.

Наконец, в 2014 году, перед Майданом, Россия предложила Украине 15 миллиардов на выгодных условиях, снижение цен на газ, таможенное партнерство и, тем самым, дальнейшее развитие украинской промышленности.

Америка в том же году — предложила Украине гражданскую войну, нищету и фактический распад страны. Нет, «предложила» — это неправильное слово.

Америка заставила Украину принять такую жизнь.

А теперь скажите мне: какое государство можно назвать самым опасным на Земле?

Ответ, как мне кажется, очевиден для всего мира, а не только для нас.
