“Historic suspicions”? Yes, I imagine the International Court of Justice decision condemning the United States for its covert war against Nicaragua might have raised Nicaraguan suspicions of U.S. interference. And I guess the report of the UN’s Historical Clarification Commission for Guatemala, documenting U.S. backing of the genocidal forces the U.S. had installed in the 1954 coup, might have made the Guatemalans suspicious as well. And I suppose watching U.S. planes, helicopter gunships, and warships destroying the El Chorrillo neighborhood of Panama during the 1989 invasion might also have given the Panamians some suspicions about U.S. interference.
IMAGE: Ronald Reagan in 1976, Gov. of California. It was the beginning of the ascent to the White House, with awful consequences for America and the world. Reagan’s foreign policy was marked by naked imperialism, interventionism in poor countries, and smug rhetoric. Today, Obama’s policies aim to fulfill the same imperial mandate, under similar demogoguery.
“For leftists, Obama has been a total bust. He’s escalated the war in Afghanistan, increased the cross-border bombings of Pakistan, hemmed and hawed about prosecuting war crimes, refused to actively lobby House members to make it easier for workers to organize (EFCA), and surrounded himself with bank industry reps who’ve committed $12.8 trillion to sinking financial institutions with no assurance that the money would be repaid. Apart from a trifling bill on stem cells, Obama has done absolutely zero to confirm his bone fides as a liberal. The truth is, Obama is neither liberal nor conservative; he’s simply an inspiring orator and a skillful politician who has no strong convictions about anything.”

April 2, 2009 Give Obama a Chance to Do What? By Kevin Gosztola IF IT WEREN’T FOR ALL THE EXCUSES BEING MADE for Obama’s and his administration’s actions, I would feel a whole lot better. I think others who suffered under the Bush Regime would too. The populist anger across America is refreshing. People are [...]
EDITOR’S NOTE: We reproduce the op-ed article below, which appeared in a regular mainstream media outlet The Los Angeles Times (of normally center-right persuasion, no less) to illustrate how, piece by piece, the Zionist influence on US media and government—mostly based on a vast and lavishly funded apparatus of intimidation— is beginning to crumble as a [...]
