Trump Competes With Hillary in U.S. War of Lies and Terror Against Syria
BlackAgendaReport, June 28, 2017

Donald Trump is the very embodiment of why the undeserving rich must no longer be allowed to reproduce themselves, as a class. They are the fuse that, if not removed, will ignite a fiery doom for the species. Decisively kettled in the White House by a bipartisan War Party that feared he might weaken the momentum of the Obama-Clinton military offensive in Syria, Trump appears to have opted to outdo his tormentors in mad brinksmanship.

Seemingly out of the blue, the White House announced that the U.S. had “identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.” Press secretary Sean Spicer provided no substantive details, only a warning that if “Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price.»

Amazingly, nobody seemed to have broken the potentially apocalyptic news to the Pentagon, and even the White House National Security Council behaved as if it were out of the loop. The New York Times, a ferocious proponent of regime change, ever ready to amplify and embellish the wildest fictions about Syrian government use of chemical weapons “against its own people” — and they have all been fictions — spent the whole day in fruitless search for authoritative voices to flesh out the story. Not until Tuesday did the Pentagon release a statement, weakly claiming that the U.S. had observed “what looked like active preparations for a chemical attack” at the Syrian air base that Trump bombed on April 6, in supposed retaliation for the non-existent Syrian sarin gas attack on an al-Qaida-controlled town in Idlib province.
In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon. Donald Trump is a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism.
Psycho-babble masquerading as political analysis is usually useless, but Trump is a babbler who is acting psycho. Hillary Clinton gives the impression of being more disciplined than Trump, but is nevertheless criminally insane, a howling homicidal fiend who would have issued an unacceptable ultimatum to the leaders of Syria and Russia long before hitting the 100-day mark in her presidency. The world might have been a cold cinder by now, had Hillary been allowed to return to the White House. The planet’s epitaph would read: Humans evolved, Clinton became president, everybody died.

 

There is no good way out of terminal crisis for U.S. imperialism, other than to surrender to the verdict of history – which, for the imperialist, is an unthinkable horror that drives them to risk suicide while routinely murdering millions. “Better dead than Red” remains the imperialist maxim, even though their antagonists are mainly capitalists, these days. It is actually quite logical that the heads of both imperial parties are bonkers, and that the politician considered by millions to be the “progressive” alternative is also an imperialist pig — the only kind of animal that is allowed on this farm.
There was a time less than a year ago when Donald Trump was sufficiently in control of his meager faculties to understand that Barack Obama was “the founder of ISIS” and his co-founder is Hillary Clinton. That’s an essentially correct statement, in that President Obama and his secretary of state unleashed such a torrent of weapons and money to favored jihadists that the emergence of ISIS, impatient to establish a caliphate on captured territory, was both inevitable and predicted.
A year after Obama and his European and Arab friends brought down Libya’s Gaddafi and shifted their proxy war of regime change to Syria, U.S. military intelligence saw clearly the imminent rise of ISIS — and that this is exactly what the West, Gulf countries and Turkey…want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.
Last summer, Trump perceived the basic outlines of the U.S.-sponsored jihadist wars in Libya and Syria. But, the not-so-tough-little-rich-boy finally recanted under the relentless assault of the War Party, and is now “all in” with every lie about Russia and the Syrian state. Trump joins the War Party with the fervor of a convert, guaranteeing an even bloodier mess than usual.
“President Obama and his secretary of state unleashed such a torrent of weapons and money to favored jihadists that the emergence of ISIS, impatient to establish a caliphate on captured territory, was both inevitable and predicted.”
Trump craves “normality” – which, under imperialist terms, requires that he wage endless warfare abroad. Trump is far more comfortable waging domestic wars against Blacks, Mexican immigrants and Moslems.

 

Most of the world knows full well that the U.S. and western Europe have grown dependent on Islamic jihadists to buttress imperial interests in the Muslim world.
The people of Syria and Iraq are intimately familiar with the political-theological movements that have emerged from the madness imposed on their societies by the United States. The people of the United States have easy access to the truth of their country’s criminal role in the world — the evidence is everywhere, and not really hidden — but choose to believe in U.S. “exceptionalism” because it infers that they, the citizens of empire, are also exceptional creatures.

State of Emergency for NYC’s Troubled Subways

Bloomberg, June 29, 2017

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency in the city’s subway system and called for a surge of spending on improvements, days after a derailment injured 39 passengers and forced the evacuation of hundreds from the disabled train.

The governor’s declaration of emergency Thursday gives Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Joseph Lhota 30 days to devise a reorganization plan.

The derailment Tuesday morning near 125th Street in Harlem shut down service for hours on a system that’s been bedeviled for months by delays, due in part to deferred maintenance and the use of obsolete equipment.

Cuomo, who has ultimate control over the state-run MTA, last month predicted a “Summer of Hell” for commuters as train service into Manhattan’s Pennsylvania Station will be cut back while Amtrak makes repairs. The terminus for hundreds of thousands of daily passengers from Long Island and New Jersey has been the site of two derailments in recent months.
Part of the subway is more than 100 years old, and some cars are still in operation after more than 50 years. Hurricane Sandy flooded some stations and tracks in 2012, causing corrosion to electrical systems.

Saudis have US permission to kill Yemenis

PressTV, June 28, 2017

The Saudi kingdom has a green light from the United States and its allies to inflict death and destruction on Yemen.

“The Saudis were given literally permission by the United States … to do whatever” they want in Yemen. “We are in a situation where criminality has been actually legitimized, rationalized and excused by the international community,” the director of the Shafaqna Institute for Middle Eastern Studies said.

Trump is waging a new kind of Cold War — and millions of jobs are on the front line

BusinessInsider, June 27, 2017

Donald Trump has all but reneged on his three most crucial campaign promises on trade.

The president passed on naming China a currency manipulator and has yet to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement or impose the aggressive tariffs on imported products from China and Mexico that he touted on the campaign trail.

However, that does not mean Trump’s protectionist rhetoric and the isolationist actions he has taken so far will not have a damaging effect on US trade relations and the economy.

 

The stealth nature of Trump’s free-trade rollbacks makes them potentially more pernicious, since they could lead to a slow erosion of America’s competitive advantage and, with it, the job market.
The Trump administration has been taking targeted steps in various industries, including steel and agriculture, to pick fights with trading partners that may have damaging long-run effects.
On steel, Trump has cited national-security concerns to launch a widespread review that could lead to new rounds of tariffs and trade disputes.

 

«The Trump administration has quickly adopted an aggressive and antagonistic approach to using US trade laws as a protectionist tool,» Chad Bown, a former White House trade economist and a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said in a new study.
«The effect on trade relations may not be as immediately disruptive as if Trump had followed through on campaign threats to pull the United States out of NAFTA or impose 45% tariffs on China,» Bown writes. «However, the escalating trade barriers and the means through which the Trump administration is motivating their use have the potential to severely weaken the rules-based trading system.»

 

During the campaign, Trump even threatened to pull out of the 164-member WTO, which the United States played a key role in developing over several decades. Now the approach is less an all-out trade war but rather a cold war of trade attrition that threatens to be equally damaging, and could led to severe job losses if implemented on an ongoing basis.
If fully implemented, Trump’s proposals on trade would provoke retaliation by US trading partners, unleashing a trade war that would send the US economy into recession and cost millions of Americans their jobs.

 

The European Central Bank took the rare step of rebuking another sovereign state’s leadership, arguing the Trump administration presents a key risk to the world economy. «Since the U.S. election, pressures for more inward-looking policies have risen,» the ECB said. «In particular, there is significant policy uncertainty surrounding the intentions of the new U.S. administration regarding fiscal and, especially, trade policies, the latter entailing potentially significant negative effects on the global economy.»

Dictatorship USA – Part 9C

The January 2017 “Women’s March” — a case study

The day after Donald Trump was inaugurated as US President, massive “pro-women’s rights” marches were held in Washington DC and other American cities.

«The Women’s March was a worldwide protest on January 21, 2017, to advocate legislation and policies regarding human rights and other issues, including women’s rights, immigration reform, healthcare reform, the natural environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, and workers’ rights. The rallies were aimed at Donald Trump(2017 Women’s March, Wikipedia – further quotes are from this source).

The march ended up drawing between 440,000 to 500,000 in Washington D.C.” — that is about half a million in the nation’s capital – and additional hundreds of thousands elsewhere in the country.

How was such a massive turnout ensured? The patent explanation: “On November 9, 2016, the day after Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, in reaction to Trump’s election campaign and political views, Teresa Shook of Hawaii created a Facebook event and invited friends to march on Washington in protest. Similar Facebook pages created by Evvie Harmon, Fontaine Pearson, Bob Bland (a New York fashion designer), Breanne Butler, and others quickly led to thousands of women signing up to march.»

«Planned Parenthood partnered with the march by providing staff and offering knowledge related to planning a large-scale event… Planned Parenthood has received federal funding since 1970.» Thus, an organization openly funded by the US government organized a huge demonstration against the US government! What glorious “democracy”!

While a couple of “partner” organizations, such as the AFL-CIO, have a large membership (although roughly 90% of American workers belong to no trade union!), there is no evidence that this national “trade union” did anything to mobilize their members. Their “partnership” was pure formality. Most of the other “partner” organizations are paper outfils and – like the AFL-CIO leadership – run by stooges of the monstrous and vicious US lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder political police state apparatus.

The speakers at the Washington democration included long-time US political police finks such as

Goria Steinem, Angeles Davis, Michael Moore and others of the same ilk.

Thus organizations led by the US secret political police and individual accomplices of the same US political police ran massive America-wide demonstrations against the government of the US secret political police. Wow!

…………………………………….

Such as massive demonstation — given enormous publicity by the US imperialist mass media machine — could never have taken place by someone “creating a Facebook event.” From far-off Hawaii, or all places!

Phony “partner” organizations — such as “the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the National Organization for Women, MoveOn.org, Human Rights Watch, Code Pink, Black Girls Rock!, the NAACP, the American Indian Movement, Emily’s List, Oxfam, Greenpeace USA,” etc. – could not organize their way out of a paper bag. These are largely dummy outfits themselves; they do not have the resources, leadership or will to organize anything of substance. Each of these organizations separately and all of them combined in fact organize nothing important.

The massive Washington and allied demonstations could only have been organized by the US political police apparatus, using the “leaders” and a host of “partner” outfits largely as fronts.

Why?

One should not confuse this kind of “popular manifestation” with the very real confrontation that currently exists among the elite themselves: between the ultra-reactionary Donald Trump forces and other – less reactionary in posture only — big-time political elements opposed to him. Opposed to Trump, but DEFINITELY not opposed to US imperialism generally. The current conflict within the American ruling top dogs is the greatest of its kind since the US Civil War (1861-65).

The US secret political police provided the enormous muscle, resources and funds to organize this event (actually multiple events) of very large magnitude. Hundreds of thousands of “part-time” agents of the US lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder political police state apparatus were ordered to participate in the Washington and related actions. Part-time agents of the US secret political police constituted the great bulk of the participants.

Were there also honest participants in these actions? Almost certainly.

So what was the purpose of these massive charades? To “get” Trump? Nonsense.

Trump’s policies – no less than Hillary Clinton’s, if this vicious war-monger had been elected – are going to be a disaster for many tens of millions of Americans. Trump’s ultra-phony, reactionary and racist posture as a friend of essentially white (Caucasian) American workers and middle-class elements is a total fraud, and the real-life exposure of these lies will be felt fairly soon. A real basis for mass outrage is in the cards.

The mass demonstations in Washington and elsewhere are going nowhere. Nothing in the US has changed politically. Absolutely nothing has changed or will change as a result of these marches. There is no follow-up, no program of continued action. The US ruling class has nothing to worry about.

Meanwhile, the United States showed how “democratic” it is – a critically important propaganda ploy for domestic as well as international consumption. These marches allowed even honest non-participants to vicariously let off steam and be reassured that “all is alright” — or at least tolerable — in “democratic” America. “Things in America are bad, but at least someone is prepared to defend good.”

Moreover and no less important, these marches allowed honest potential activists to be (further) identified by the US secret political police. “Who is willing to go against the status quo?”

Such mass propaganda ploys are fairly rare events in the US – their frequency depends on circumstances. But they serve crucially important objectives of the US lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder political police state apparatus.

DICTATORSHIP!!

2 Out Of 3 US Patients Can’t Afford Their Hospital Bills

ZeroHedge, June 27, 2017

Healthcare premiums: The price increases have been outright crippling for those forced to buy policies on the exchanges, up well over 100% over the past 4 years, on average, with some states up over 200%.

But premiums aren’t the only part of health plans that have soared.  For those people who are lucky enough to actually be able to afford a plan, you simply bought yourself the opportunity to cover even more of your healthcare costs out of pocket as deductibles have also soared.

In fact, a new study from TransUnion Healthcare reveals that 2 out of 3 patients (68%) couldn’t afford to pay their hospital bills in full in 2016, up from 49% in 2014.
A new TransUnion Healthcare analysis revealed a significant rise in the percentage of patients that didn’t pay their hospital bills in full. Approximately 68% of patients with bills of $500 or less did not pay off the full balance during 2016 – up from 53% in 2015 and 49% in 2014.

 There are many reasons why more patients are struggling to make their healthcare payments in full, the most prominent of which are higher deductibles and the increase in patient responsibility from 10% to 30% over the last few years. This shift in healthcare payments has been taking place for well over a decade, but we are seeing more pronounced changes in how hospital bills are paid during just the last few years.

But that’s not even the worst of it, patient responsibility on 14% of hospital bills in 2016 exceeded $3,000, an obligation which only 1% of patients were able to cover on a timely basis.

 

— 63% of hospital bills were $500 or less; of those hospital bills, 68% were not paid in full in 2016.

— 14% of hospital bills were $3,000 or more; of those hospital bills, 99% were not paid in full in 2016.

— 10% of hospital bills were $500 to $1,000; of those bills 85% were not paid in full in 2016.

 

Meanwhile, the soaring deductibles are putting even more pressure on razor thin hospital margins and have caused a rash of closures since 2010.

Since 2010, 79 rural hospitals have closed, according to the North Carolina Rural Health Research Program. That number will continue to increase if more patients can’t pay their bills.

Fake «Chemical Weapon Attack» In Syria

White House Says It Will Fake «Chemical Weapon Attack» In Syria

MoonOfAlabama, June 27, 2017

The White House claims that the Syrian government is preparing «chemical weapon attacks». This is clearly not the case. Syria is winning the war against the country. Any such attack would clearly be to its disadvantage. The White House announcement must thereby be understood as preparation for another U.S. attack on Syria in «retaliation» for an upcoming staged «chemical weapon attack» which will be blamed on the Syrian government.

In August 2013 Syria invited inspectors of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to investigate chemical weapons attacks on the Syrian army. As soon as the inspectors arrived in Damascus a «chemical attack» was staged in Ghouta near Damascus. Lots of Jihadist video coverage of killed children was published and the «western» media blamed the incident on the Syrian government. It never explained why targeting a militarily irrelevant area with chemical weapons at the same time as inspectors arrived would have been a rational decision for a Syrian government that was just regaining control and international standing.

The «attack» was clearly staged by the opposition of the Syrian government and its foreign supporters. The Obama administration had planned to use it to launch U.S. attacks on the Syrian government but refrained from this when Russia arranged to remove Syria’s strategic chemical weapons, aimed at Israel, instead.
In early 2017 the Syrian military and its allies had gained the upper hand and were victorious on all fronts. Two days later another «chemical attack» was staged in the al-Qaeda held town of Khan Sheikhun. Lots of Jihadi video coverage of killed children, likely prepared in advance, was spilled onto the «western» public. U.S. intelligence knew that no chemical attack by the Syrian government had taken place. But the Trump administration used the incident to launch a volley of cruise missiles against a Syrian military airport. The media coverage changed from damming Trump for his alleged «Russian connections» to lauding his decisiveness in response to the faked attack.
The end of the war on Syria is in sight. One can start to tabulate the winners and losers. The U.S. military conceded that it had lost the race to occupy south-east Syria. All these turns in favor of Syria show that the war is practically won unless some of the outside sponsors of the Takfiri «rebels» again escalate.
Such an escalation is now happening. The White House claims to have information that the Syrian government is preparing a chemical weapon attack to kill «innocent children»:
In an ominous statement issued with no supporting evidence or further explanation, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the U.S. had “identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.”
The White House claim is of course nonsense and not supported by any evidence or logic at all.

The lunatic U.S. ambassador to the UN jumped in to make it clear that it does not matter who commits whatever crime in Syria, Takfiris, the U.S. or Israel, it will be the Syrian, Russian and Iranian governments who will held guilty of it: Nikki Haley — “Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people.»
This all is clearly a coordinated operation by the «western» supporters of the Takfiris in Syria. Their aim is to prevent the victory of Syria and its allies. The U.S. wants to split up the country.

Syria insists that its has no chemical weapons nor any intention to use any indiscriminate weapon. Russia warns of any further military aggression and calls such U.S. threats unacceptable.
