US TV news: Zero evidence to prove MH17 shot down by pro Russian rebels

Little nicky and his friends at Boggart Blog have had our share of fun with shills for America’s war of economic salavtion, who seem to be getting more and more upset with us. The problem is of course that right after malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was brought down over Ukraine, we said calims by US President Barack Obama that US military surveillance agents had ‘compelling evidence’ the pro Rusdian separatists in Ukraine had shot down the aircraft seemed a little too quick off the mark and made the disaster look like another US sponsored false flag attack.

The pro war shills said, “It was the rebels, Barack Obama said so and what evidence could be more conclusive than that.”

Since then of course, Little Nicky and Boggart Blog have produced mountains of evidence pointing to the US / EU supported illegal neo fascist regime in Kiev having carried out the attack. This has come from souces as diverse as Malaysian Newspaper New Straits Times, Times of India, Huffington Post, The Socialist Network, and independent American and German military aviation experts (find all our posts on the topic HERE

The shills keep banging away, trying to discredit any evidence offered, but are easily swatted away. So far they have despite having been challenged to do so on many occasions.

Let’s see what they make of this summing up of the lack of evidence against the rebels, from AMTV, an american news magazine program that goes out on the MTV channel.

Agenda 21 – Oligarchic Collectivism In America

America was being nudged towards National Socialism from the 1960s and now the Obama Administration is racing to implement Agenda 21, the New World Order plan that prohibits anybody but the elite from owning property or having the right of free speech.

It looks more and more likely that American individualism and the basic human instinc for self-preservation will lead to civil unrest (if the mainstream media would report the truth this has probably already happened as the police have lost control of inner suburbs in most cities. The use of force will become increasingly necessary to get most people to willingly go along with this encroaching tyranny.

American Paranoia With A Pretty Face

The USA is not yet a dictatorship no matter how rapidly it would seem to be moving in that direction. Sadly and perhaps very significantly the United States has employed a number of paranoid tactics that delegitimize its democracy. This phenomenon is on display in the fictional TV series “Homeland,” which depicts hysterical CIA agents in a hysterical country.

We se it in the newspapers and on television news, in comment threads on internet sites and in the megalomaniacal ravings of the rent boy President. And when we se it reflected in the scripts of television dramas we can be sure the country is in big trouble.

Agent Carrie Mathison, main character in the American TV series “Homeland,” (played by the gorgeous Claire Danes), shows her true relevance in the first few episodes, in which Mathison is nervously sitting at home, observing and listening in on the life of a terror suspect on a large screen.

homeland paranoia His apartment is bugged and Mathison is determined to find out as much as she can about him. She is hysterical, bipolar, paranoid and sick. And all these things are considered qualifications for her job.

In real life United States security personnel working for the CIA, NSA and FBI are much further along the District Line than agent Carrie Mathison, next stop Barking for most of them. They spy on everyone, from dole dossers to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who, unlike a certain Barack Hussein Obama, has not so far been accused of maintaining ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Everyone is a threat, people who grow vegetables in their back garden are extremists, people who visit “conspiracy theory websites” (do they mean anyone who looks at this site? Probably.)are seen as seditionists, people who criticize Obama’s economic or foreign policy, Obamacare or any government action are racists, and people who eat donuts in the street in some cities are terrorists.

Everybody it seems is a threat. It is starting to make the world of Orwell’s 1984 look positively Utopian.

More traditional spy fiction may tell us that spooks and secret agents live in a kind of fantasy world of beautiful women with perfect cheekbones, fascinating accents and permanently moist vaginas. T V shows like Homeland however are an expression of the societies in which they exist. It may be then that paranoid populations demand paranoid protectors.

Most of the USA’s image of itself until recently was based on the freedom myth, a land of rugged and self sufficient individuals surviving against the odds. But to survive against the odds we must see everything as a potential threat. That leads to paranoia. Paranoia in turn, poses a threat to freedomdom threatened Americans become even more paranoid. Where does America’s fear come from?

Franklyn D. Roosvelt, according to many people America’s greatest president, once said, “You have nothing to fear but fear itself.

Freedom means that there is an endless range of possibilities, and that anything can happen, including both good and bad things, predictable things, unpredictable things, unimaginable things. Freedom engenders fear.

American paranoia is self sustaining.

Bin Laden Died Of Natural Causes – I Told You So

Oh ye of little faith, those of you who doubted Little Nicky when after the Obama White House claimed credit for taking out terror chief Osama Bin Laden, I told you that Bin Laden had been dead for years, kidney disease had done for him some time between 2002 and 2005. I even gave you video of the late Benazir Butto leaking the news of the bin Laden death (peacefully in his bed) shortly before she was assassinated, (coincidence – mmmmmmmaybe, make up your own minds on that one)

Well doubters, what do you make of this.
(“But Nicky” cry the doubters, “this is a web news site, we only believe stuff we hear or read of from mainstream media.” – fools, when have they ever been right.)

A former agent of the CIA has revealed that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has died of natural causes five years before the US announced his death.

“In an interview with Russia’s Channel One, Berkan Yashar, who is also a Turkish politician, said the US has not killed the al-Qaeda leader.

“In September of 1992, I was in Chechnya, that’s when I first met the man whose name was Bin Laden. This meeting took place in a two-story house in the city of Grozny; on the top floor was a family of Gamsakhurdia, the Georgian president, who then was kicked out of his country. We met on the bottom floor; Osama lived in the same building,” Yashar said.

According to the former CIA agent, he personally knew Bin Laden’s three Chechen bodyguards, who had protected him until his death and witnessed his death on June 26, 2006.

“Even if the entire world believed, I could not possibly believe it,” Yashar said. “I personally know the Chechens who protected him, they are Sami, Mahmood, and Ayub, and they were with him until the very end.”

“Only three Chechens buried him, according to his will” in the mountains on the Pakistan-Afghan border, he said.

Yashar added that the CIA abducted one of the bodyguards, Sami, before the announced killing of Bin Laden last year.

He says the bodyguard disclosed to the US the exact place of burial in the mountains.

“There was no assault. I know the American operations from the inside: they find the grave, dig out bin Laden and tell everyone about this. They need to show how technologically the security services worked, how each step was controlled, and then present it as a great victory to show that taxpayers are not paying taxes for nothing,” he said.

Washington announced on May 2, 2011 that Bin Laden was killed by US forces in his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The lack of transparency over bin Laden’s death has cast further doubt over the announcement.” (There’s a video too but it’s in Russian.

A friend of mine from Triond, syine1, posted an impassioned plea for an end to bigotry titled “I’m sick of bigoted generalistations“.

The web does of course bring out he worst in us. I have been told I am a bigot simply for questioning somebody’s firmly held convictions. When I pointed out what bigot meant he told me if he said I’m a bigot then I’m a bigot.

When I told him he was a solipsists he was very pissed off, even more so when he found out what it meant.

One of the problems stine referred to is in the US a lot of people at both ends of the spectrum do not understand democracy. At one site we both post on quite recently
there was a yelling match going on about same sex marriage. A state had voted to make same sex marriage illegal once more after gay activists tried to extend the law to force Christian churces to perform weddings for same sex couple.

The ‘liberals’ were quite happy for Muslims to be exempted but not Roman Catholics.
The nastiest argument in the thread centred on a notion that in a democracy the will of the majority is not paramount and when a popular vote makes the ‘wrong decision’ the government must step in and ‘do what is right’.
I have seen many examples of similar warped logic from the religious right too.
In a democracy the majority is always right as there are no absolutes of right or wrong. We in Europe, and among most people in the USA too, agree to abide by the will of the majority even if we as individuals do not agree. That is the price of personal liberty.

(My personal view on that is civil partnerships are in the domain of state. As for religious ceremonies, the decision should be left to the church involved with the understanding that if a church says no, it is within it’s rights and there can be no legal action. It is both intolerat and undemoctatic to place more importance on the feelings of the gay community than on those of churchgoers. Some churces are of cousrse happy to formalise same sex relationships)

Bigotry breeds bigotry. As British Prime Minister William Gladstone said in the 19th century when parliament was calling for a genocidal war on Afghan tribes that resisted British rule, “Gentlemen, I can assure you that in the eyes of God the life of an Afghan herdsman is as important as any of yours.”
I’m not in any way religious but I could not put the case any better than that.

How Many Cars Should A Candidate Own?

Remember the furore about john Two jags Prescott. That was before we found out about his two shags of course. We thought two was one too many.

Well as the American election campaign descends into total silliness the Obama camp’s latest snide attack on John McCain alleges Johnny Mac owns thirteen cars while Barry Soetoro Obama owns only one. (story: News week)

What they don’t tell us is whether Obama gets round town by riding a bike like our Tory Boys BoJo and Dave Cameron or whether he rides around in a stretch limo with darkened windows hired for him by the American taxpayers.

McCain’s Thirteen cars

See what else we have been commenting on

Is Shakespeare writing John McCain’s foreign policy?

While looking at Crooks and Liars yesterday reading comments on one of the articles which had suggested John McCain’s belligerent stance on Iraq and commitment to “staying in” indefinitely might alienate middle class conservatives, a Democrat commenter with more political nous than political correctness replied that talk of permanent war was just what middle class conservatives wanted to hear, they loved the wild west politics of Bush and wanted affirmation of America’s global ascendancy. Increased military action would take their minds off the price of gas and bread, the credit crunch, immigration and the rising tide of atheism.

As the person who wrote the comment expanded his theme it stuck me that I had heard something similar before. Something about giddy minds and foreign wars…

This sent me scurrying to Google to see what I could find. Sure enough the search came up with this, from Henry IV Part 2 (Act 4 Sc. 5)

King Henry is talking to his son, Prince Harry:

Therefore, my Harry,
Be it thy course to busy giddy minds
With foreign quarrels; that action, hence borne out,
May waste the memory of the former days.

So if we think about that then quite clearly the “action hence borne out may waste the memory of former days” is a reference to the fact that the GOP hierarchy know the economy is in a hole it cannot climb out of, society is divided as never before and the challenges posed by climate change may already be insurmountable. How then do they waste the memory of former days or to put it another way, discourage the electorate from looking backward to happier and more secure times under a Democrat President? Simple, distract them with foreign quarrels. Political orthodoxy holds that in times of war the electorate will rally behind the incumbent Government.

Well that could not be more plain could it. John McCain’s senior foreign policy advisor is William Shakespeare. So when you hear Republicans claiming McCain’s age should not be an issue, knock them down by replying “It ought not to be, but some of his team are way past their sell by date.”

Will Hutton – America remains an inspiration Senior economist Will Hutton thinks America’s dynamism and positive attitude will enable it to bounce back from the current economic problems. Little Nicky Machiavelli argues that dystopic cities, a widening religious divide, racial problems and the excesses of capitalism mean this is more than an economic crisis across the pond.

Amanda on Faith Based Violence at Pandangon Pandangon’s Amanda Marcotte looks at the downfall of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints cult and asks why so many of these crackpot religions feel the need to oppress, abuse and violate women.

Self Inflicted Wounds

You are not going to believe this.

Well OK, when I tell you its about the American military you will.

In past wars it was accepted that soldiers who caught pox or clap (sexually transmitted infections) were regarded as having harmed themselves and denied sick leave. Some were even given a dishonourable discharge.

Consider that against a news story featured on American news blog Crooks and Liars.

A new government policy directed as American troops wounded in the Iraq war requires soldiers wounded in action (this is loss of limbs, eyes etc. we are talking about, not a little dose of the clap)are being required to pay back their enlistment fees on grounds that they have failed to fulfil their contract.

And if the yanks have thought of it, will it be long befre someone here thinks of it too.

The world gets crazier.

Interview With A Cybersweetie

This month I had the chance to interview my cybersweetie Janet Caldwell for Poetry Life and Times. Until ill health stopped her in her tracks a couple of years ago Janet was a phenominally popular web poet.

Read the interview as Janet speaks about her writing, her liver transplant earlier this year and the abuse she suffered in childhood that triggered so many of her problems with mental illness and addiction.

You will also find my review of Janet’s best selling poetry book 5 degrees to separation. 5 degrees is not available at the moment but we are hoping to get it back in print through Greenteeth Multi Media early in 2008.
