Bannon’s Departure Won’t Save Trump’s Presidency

TheNewYorker, Aug. 18, 2017

Much of what we saw from Donald Trump this week merely confirmed what we already knew. He’s boneheaded. He’s a divider rather than a unifier. If he’s not an outright racist—and many people would say that he is—he’s always eager to exploit the racial prejudices that some of his supporters harbor. And he hates being pressed to distance himself from confirmed racist goons such as David Duke and Richard Spencer.

“Look, look, I like Bannon,” Trump said during his shameful press conference at Trump Tower, on Tuesday. “He is a friend of mine.”

On Friday at lunchtime, after weeks of speculation, the White House confirmed that Bannon was out. “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,” a statement from the press office said. With that, the rumpled controversialist who took over Trump’s Presidential campaign last August and subsequently became the chief political strategist in the White House joined Michael Flynn, Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus, and Anthony Scaramucci on the list of senior Trump aides to get the chop.

There may well be more departures to come. Working for Trump is like entering the haunted house at a fairground: you never know when the trapdoor below your feet is going to open up.

Bannon sought to convert some of Trump’s campaign promises into actual policy measures. As someone who had long proclaimed that America was under grave threat from multiculturalism and what he referred to as “Islamic fascism,” Bannon was perfectly comfortable with Trump’s strident embrace of nativism and revanchism; indeed, he had promoted this same approach during his tenure as the chief executive of Breitbart News. In the early days of the Administration, he worked hard to get some of Trump’s more incendiary proposals enacted, including his crackdown on undocumented immigrants and his ban on Muslims entering the United States.

But to hold Bannon responsible for Trump’s most offensive gestures and utterances—including the President’s refusal, this week, to distance himself from white nationalists and neo-Nazis—would be going too far. Trump’s equating of the “Unite the Right” marchers with the counter-protesters; his claim that there were some “really fine people” on both sides; — this was all Trump’s own handiwork.

Trump is a headstrong lone operator, and he strenuously resists any efforts to constrain or direct him. For a time, Bannon was useful to him because he had the instincts of a political brawler and the ability to convert rabble-rousing rhetoric into something that could be presented to the gullible as a semi-coherent political philosophy. But now that Bannon has departed, there is absolutely no reason to suppose that the President will change his ways. Trump is Trump is Trump.

In some areas, particularly foreign policy, the White House may even have lost a restraining voice. A skeptic of U.S. interventionism, Bannon opposed the Pentagon’s missile strike on Syria, and he was highly dubious about the United States confronting North Korea.

Another area where Bannon’s absence may make a difference is economic policy. As Cohn and others in the White House steadily watered down Trump’s aggressive campaign rhetoric on trade, Bannon tried to fight back, particularly on the need to confront Chinese mercantilism. “To me, the economic war with China is everything,” he said.

If Trump is hoping that Bannon’s departure will ease the political pressure on him, he is certain to be disappointed. Today the focus is firmly on the President himself, and whether he can repair any of the enormous damage that he has done to himself, and to the country, with his loathsome response to the tragic events in Charlottesville.

After all is said and done, Bannon was just another political operative, albeit one with some grand ambitions and extreme views. Trump is the head of state, and, as Mitt Romney pointed out, he owes it to the nation to say sorry for his appalling behavior. “He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize,” Romney wrote. “State forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100% to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville. Testify that there is no conceivable comparison or moral equivalency between the Nazis—who brutally murdered millions of Jews and who hundreds of thousands of Americans gave their lives to defeat—and the counter-protestors who were outraged to see fools parading the Nazi flag, Nazi armband and Nazi salute. And once and for all, he must definitively repudiate the support of David Duke and his ilk and call for every American to banish racists and haters from any and every association.”

Another body of notables affiliated with the White House, the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, disbanded itself, saying in a public letter, “Ignoring your hateful rhetoric would have made us complicit in your words and actions.”

North Korea ‘Nuclear War’ Warning Ahead of Joint U.S.-South Korea Military Exercises

Newsweek, Jan. 20, 2017

North Korea warned Sunday that forthcoming military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea constituted «reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war.»

Rodong Sinmun, North Korea’s official state newspaper warned it had the Pacific island of Guam, Hawaii and the U.S. mainland in its crosshairs for a “merciless strike” they would be unable to dodge, according to a statement in, as cited by CNN.

The warning comes a day ahead of the start of the joint U.S. and South Korean Ulchi-Freedom Guardian military exercises, amid escalating tensions between the countries.

Trump this week praised North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, after he did not follow through on a threat to fire missiles in waters off Guam, a U.S. territory with a large naval base located 2,200 miles northeast of North Korea.

North Korean media said Kim was would wait to see the U.S. response before deciding whether to give the order to fire.

“The Ulchi-Freedom Guardian joint military exercises will be like pouring gasoline on fire and worsen the state of the peninsula,» said the statement in Rodong Sinmun. The state responded last year to U.S. — South Korea military exercises with a nuclear test.

President Donald Trump warned North Korea that any attacks would be met by “fire and fury” from the U.S., after Pyongyang announced it had developed an ICBM capable of striking the U.S. Mainland.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis said last week that though diplomatic means remain the preferred route to deal with the crisis, military options remain on the table.

PROVOCATION AND LIES: “Russian Interference in US Elections” — 7

Provocations: For the US secret political police, all-encompassing hacking is an everyday affair (3)

(See previous material):

“The technological revolution allows them (the US secret political police) to spy on almost everyone.”

“Gaining access to the huge classified data banks appears to be relatively easy.”

“The National Security Agency (NSA) is hardly likely to easily relinquish its new-found capability of snooping almost everywhere.”

No Morsel Too Minuscule for All-Consuming N.S.A.”

The National Security Agency emerges as an electronic omnivore of staggering capabilities, eavesdropping and hacking its way around the world to strip governments and other targets of their secrets, all the while enforcing the utmost secrecy about its own operations. It spies routinely on friends as well as foes.”

Today’s N.S.A. is the Amazon of intelligence agencies. It sucks the contents from fiber-optic cables, sits on telephone switches and Internet hubs, digitally burglarizes laptops and plants bugs on smartphones around the globe.”

“The NSA… has turned the nation’s Internet and telecommunications companies into collection partners, installing filters in their facilities, serving them with court orders, building back doors into their software and acquiring keys to break their encryption.”

HACKING HAS BECOME THE AGENCY’S GROWTH AREA.”

///////////////////////////////////

There you have your culprit!

The National Security Agency (NSA) was one of the final three US “intelligence” agencies which “concluded” that the Russians – ordered by Putin, mind you – hacked and disseminated the files and communications of the Democratic National Committee and damaging info about Hillary Clinton.

While all the time the NSA itself was the responsible party!!

The NSA hacked these files and disseminated the material for widespread publication. By giving world-wide pubicity to Wikileaks’ exposures, the prostitute US mass media fervently cooperated (as they always do) in another provocative endeavor.

The Story of Charlottesville was Written in Blood in the Ukraine

BlackAgendaReport, Aug. 16, 2017

Some of the neo-Nazis President Obama helped put in power in Ukraine carried Confederate flags.

What is the character of racist right-wing politics today? Is it the crazed white supremacist who plows into an anti-fascist demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, or can it also be the assurance by Lindsay Graham that an attack against North Korea would result in thousands of lives lost…. but those lives will be “over there”?

What about the recent unanimous resolution by both Houses of Congress in support of Israel and criticism of the United Nations for its alleged anti-Israeli bias? Would that qualify as racist and right-wing, since it appears that the ongoing suffering of the Palestinians is of no concern? And what about the vote by the U.S. House of Representatives to go even beyond the obscene proposal of the Trump administration to increase the military budget by $54 billion dollars and instead add a whopping $74 billion to the Pentagon budget?

The white supremacy that is more insidious may not be reflected in the images of the Nazi-saluting alt-righters or even Donald Trump.

That process doesn’t just produce the storm troopers of the armed radical right but also such covert true believers as Robert Ruben from Goldman Sachs, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Tony Blair and Nancy Pelosi — “decent” individuals who have never questioned for a moment the superiority of Western civilization, who believe completely in the West’s right and responsibility to determine which nations should have sovereignty and who should be the leaders of “lesser” nations. And who believe that there is no alternative to the wonders of global capitalism even if it means that billions of human beings are consigned permanently to the “zone of non-being.”

While I recognize the danger of the violent right-wing movement, I am more concerned with the right-wing policies that are being enacted into law and policy by both Democrats and Republicans at every level of government.

The brutal repression and dehumanization witnessed across Europe in the 1930s has not found generalized expression in the U.S. and Europe, at least not yet. Nevertheless, large sectors of the U.S. and European left appear to be unable to recognize that the U.S./NATO/EU axis that is committed to maintaining the hegemony of Western capital is resulting in dangerous collaborations with rightist forces both inside and outside of governments.

What about the inherent danger of the Obama Administration’s cynical manipulation of right-wing elements in Ukraine to overthrow the democratically elected government of Viktor Yanukovych? Not only was it dangerous and predictably disastrous for the Ukrainian people, but because U.S. support for a neo-fascist movement in Ukraine took place within a context in which the political right was gaining legitimacy and strength across Europe.

The Obama Admiration’s objective to Russia in Ukraine had the effect of empowering the right and shifting the balance of forces toward the right throughout Europe. Liberals and the left both in the U.S. and in Europe generally supported his Ukraine policies.

Playing footsie with right-wing elements in the Ukraine and underestimating the growing power of racism and fascism have resulted in powerful and dangerous right-wing movements on both sides of the Atlantic who have effectively exploited endemic white racism and the contradictions of neoliberal capitalist globalization. The ascendancy of Donald Trump cannot be decontextualized from the fascost threat of this moment here and abroad.

The alt-right that showed up in Charlottesville this past weekend was mimicking the tactics of the frontline neo-fascist soldiers who orchestrated the coup in the Ukraine.

Support for the Israeli state, war on North Korea, mass black and brown incarceration, a grotesque military budget, urban gentrification, the subversion of Venezuela and the state war on black and brown people of all genders are among the many manifestations of an entrenched right-wing ideology that cannot be conveniently reduced to Trump and the Republicans.

Charlottesville: “I Think a Lot More People Are Going to Die Before We Are Done”

NakedCapitalism, Aug. 18, 2017

What was planned for Charlottesville was not an exercise in free speech. It was an exercise in intimidation of Jews, blacks, and other minorities by men who were armed with guns, bludgeons, and other weapons and bragged about their ability to engage in violence. The headline quote is a boast from the leader of the white supremacists. They used Nazi imagery and Nazi chants.

Charlottesville was an incitement to riot. Not only the neo-Nazi’s and KKK but also (and especially) the “militia.” You couldn’t believe that ordinary people could buy weapons and walk around like that. In France you might be warned but would more likely be shot on sight by the police or army carrying an assault rifle like that.

This sort of thing has no business being tolerated in the US. At least 50 million people died in World War II in the war with the Third Reich and its allies, including over 400,000 US servicemen. The Holocaust was not limited to Jews, although they were its main target. The Nazis also slaughtered at least 200,000 handicapped people, 1.9 million non-Jewish Poles, one million Slavs, 100,000 homosexuals, 130,000 Roma, and 1000 members of the Roman Catholic clergy.

Why did Charlottesville happen? Because we lie.


TheSacramentoBee, Aug. 12, 2017

What happened Saturday at and around the University of Virginia. Reports paint a frightening picture: Nazis, Klansmen and others of the extreme right — mostly white men in their 20s and 30s — shouting the usual expressions of hate; brawls breaking out between the protesters and counterprotesters; police standing by. A car was driven through a crowd of counterprotesters, with the result that over a dozen people were injured, at least one of them fatally.

 

What happened Saturday in Virginia is the bitter and inevitable fruit of our habit of intellectual dishonesty where race is concerned.

 

The first such lay in writing slavery and racial inferiority into the US Constitution that supposedly enshrined the equality of all people before the law. From that day on, we have never stopped lying where race is concerned. Indeed, as the moral authority of the Civil Rights Movement recedes deeper into memory and as cable news and social media offer new platforms and broad reach to voices of acrimony and hate. “Facts” become untruths become lies and too few of us seem to notice or care, the intellectual dishonesty surrounding race has become starker, more brazen and more creative than we have seen in years.

Nor have news media brought clarity. It was pundits, after all, who kept ascribing Donald Trump’s rise to “economic anxiety” even as his followers were yelling racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs with unbridled glee. And leave us not forget how media have allowed the folks who brought such chaos to Charlottesville to brand themselves under a banal-sounding new euphemism — the “alt-right” — as if they were not the same bunch of mouth-breathing, lowlife racist-fascists they always were.

Where race is concerned, intellectual honesty, the willingness to see and say what is right has long been in short supply. And too many readily embrace implicit lies because they fear the places to which the truth will push them. But the racial riot and terrorism that has just visited Charlottesville and the emboldened brazenness of the white supremacist movement now that one of their own has taken the White House, suggest that you no longer have the luxury of avoidance, at least not if the future of this country matters to you.

I am not unmindful of the young white students who protested the hate that arrived on their campus. But I am likewise not unmindful that too many have watched with complicit silence and quiet terror of demographic change as voting rights were abridged, murderous policemen went free. The “News” turned resentment into ratings and politicians turned rancor into power.

Provocations: For the US secret political police, hacking is an everyday affair (2)

No Morsel Too Minuscule for All-Consuming N.S.A. (NY TimesNov. 2, 2013)

The National Security Agency (NSA) for decades has operated on the principle that any eavesdropping that can be done on a foreign target of any conceivable interest — now or in the future — should be done. After all, American intelligence officials reasoned, who’s going to find out?

From thousands of classified documents, the National Security Agency emerges as an electronic omnivore of staggering capabilities, eavesdropping and hacking its way around the world to strip governments and other targets of their secrets, all the while enforcing the utmost secrecy about its own operations. It spies routinely on friends as well as foes, as has become obvious in recent weeks; the agency’s official mission list includes using its surveillance powers to achieve “diplomatic advantage” over such allies as France and Germany and “economic advantage” over Japan and Brazil, among other countries.

James R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence, has acknowledged that the scale of eavesdropping by the N.S.A., with 35,000 workers and $10.8 billion a year, sets it apart. “There’s no question that from a capability standpoint we probably dwarf everybody on the planet,” he said. (At the agency’s request, The Times is withholding some details that officials said could compromise intelligence operations.)

The N.S.A. seems to be listening everywhere in the world, gathering every stray electron that might add, however minutely, to the United States government’s knowledge of the world.

The N.S.A. has seen its potential targets explode in number with the advent of personal computers, the Internet and cellphones. Today’s N.S.A. is the Amazon of intelligence agencies. It sucks the contents from fiber-optic cables, sits on telephone switches and Internet hubs, digitally burglarizes laptops and plants bugs on smartphones around the globe.

The agency’s Dishfire database — nothing happens without a code word at the N.S.A. — stores years of text messages from around the world, just in case. Its Tracfin collection accumulates gigabytes of credit card purchases. The fellow pretending to send a text message at an Internet cafe in Jordan may be using an N.S.A. technique code-named Polarbreeze to tap into nearby computers. The Russian businessman who is socially active on the web might just become food for Snacks, the acronym-mad agency’s Social Network Analysis Collaboration Knowledge Services, which figures out the personnel hierarchies of organizations from texts.

No investment seems too great if it adds to the agency’s global phone book. After mounting a major eavesdropping effort focused on a climate change conference in Bali in 2007, agency analysts stationed in Australia’s outback were especially thrilled by one catch: the cellphone number of Bali’s police chief.

«The N.S.A. documents taken by Mr. Snowden and shared with The Times, numbering in the thousands and mostly dating from 2007 to 2012, are part of a collection of about 50,000 items. While far from comprehensive, the documents give a sense of the agency’s reach and abilities, from the Navy ships snapping up radio transmissions as they cruise off the coast of China, to the satellite dishes at Fort Meade in Maryland ingesting worldwide banking transactions, to the rooftops of 80 American embassies and consulates around the world from which the agency’s Special Collection Service aims its antennas.

In the funding boom that followed the Sept. 11 attacks, the agency expanded and decentralized far beyond its Fort Meade headquarters in Maryland, building or expanding major facilities in Georgia, Texas, Colorado, Hawaii, Alaska, Washington State and Utah. Its officers also operate out of major overseas stations in England, Australia, South Korea and Japan, at overseas military bases, and from locked rooms housing the Special Collection Service inside American missions abroad.

«The agency, using a combination of jawboning, stealth and legal force, has turned the nation’s Internet and telecommunications companies into collection partners, installing filters in their facilities, serving them with court orders, building back doors into their software and acquiring keys to break their encryption.

But even that vast American-run web is only part of the story. For decades, the N.S.A. has shared eavesdropping duties with the rest of the so-called Five Eyes, the Sigint agencies of Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. More limited cooperation occurs with many more countries, including formal arrangements called Nine Eyes and 14 Eyes and Nacsi, an alliance of the agencies of 26 NATO countries.

«EARS ON THE WORLD: Much of the agency’s eavesdropping is run from stations at home and abroad, far beyond its Maryland headquarters.

Today, with personal computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones in most homes and government offices in the developed world, hacking has become the agency’s growth area.

Some of Mr. Snowden’s documents describe the exploits of Tailored Access Operations, the prim name for the N.S.A. division that breaks into computers around the world to steal the data inside, and sometimes to leave spy software behind. T.A.O. is increasingly important in part because it allows the agency to bypass encryption by capturing messages as they are written or read, when they are not encoded.

«In the Afghan reports and many others, a striking paradox is the odd intimacy of a sprawling, technology-driven agency with its targets. It is the one-way intimacy of the eavesdropper, as N.S.A. employees virtually enter the office cubicles of obscure government officials and the Spartan hide-outs of drug traffickers and militants around the world.

Venezuela, for instance, was one of six “enduring targets” in N.S.A.’s official mission list from 2007, along with China, North Korea, Iraq, Iran and Russia. The United States viewed itself in a contest for influence in Latin America with Venezuela’s leader then, the leftist firebrand Hugo Chávez, who allied himself with Cuba, and one agency goal was “preventing Venezuela from achieving its regional leadership objectives and pursuing policies that negatively impact U.S. global interests.”
