Things Have to Change in Order to Remain the Same
(AntiWar.com) -- by Paul Craig Roberts
The hypocrisy of the U.S. government is yet again demonstrated in full force. The U.S. government invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, laid waste to much of the countries, including entire villages and towns, and massacred untold numbers of civilians in order “to bring democracy” to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now after days of Egyptians in the streets demanding “Mubarak must go,” the U.S. government remains aligned with its puppet Egyptian ruler, even suggesting that Mubarak, after running a police state for three decades, is the appropriate person to implement democracy in Egypt.
On Jan. 30, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that “freedom and democracy” America neither seeks nor supports the ouster of the Egyptian dictator.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the U.S. and Europe that criticism of Mubarak must be curbed in order “to preserve stability in the region.”
By “stability” Netanyahu means the unimpeded ability of Israel to continue oppressing the Palestinians and stealing their country. Mubarak has been for three decades the well-paid enforcer for the U.S. and Israel, sealing off Gaza from the outside world and preventing aid flows across the Egyptian border. Mubarak and his family have become multi-billionaires, thanks to the American taxpayer, and both Republicans and Democrats do not want to lose their heavy investment in Mubarak.
The U.S. government has long corrupted Arab governments by paying rulers installed by the U.S. to represent U.S./Israeli interests rather than the interests of Arab peoples. Arabs put up with American-financed oppression for many years but now are showing signs of rebellion.
The murderous American-supported dictator in Tunis was overthrown by people taking to the streets. Rebellion has spread to Egypt, and there are also street protests against the U.S.-supported rulers in Yemen and Jordan.
These uprisings might succeed in ousting puppet rulers, but will the result be anything more than the exchange of a new American puppet ruler for the old? Mubarak might go, but whoever takes his place is likely to find himself wearing the same American harness.
What dictators do is to eliminate alternative leadership. Potential leaders are either assassinated, exiled, or imprisoned. Moreover, anything short of a full-fledged revolution, such as the Iranian one, leaves in place a bureaucracy accustomed to business as usual. In addition, Egypt and the country’s military have grown accustomed to American support and will want the money to keep flowing. It is the flow of this money that ensures the purchase of the replacement government.
Because the U.S. dollar is the world reserve currency, the U.S. government has financial dominance and the ability to financially isolate other countries, such as Iran. To break free of America’s grip, one of two things would have to happen. Revolution would have to sweep the Arab world and result in an economic unity that could foster indigenous economic development, or the U.S. dollar would have to fail as world currency.
Arab disunity has long been the means by which the Western countries have dominated the Middle East. Without this disunity, Israel and the U.S. could not abuse the Palestinians in the manner in which they have for decades, and without this disunity the U.S. could not have invaded Iraq. It is unlikely that the Arabs will suddenly unite themselves.
The collapse of the dollar is more likely. Indeed, the policy of the U.S. government to maximize both budget and trade deficits and the policy of the Federal Reserve to monetize the budget deficit and the fraudulent paper assets of the large banks have the dollar heading for demise.
As the supply of dollars grows, the value diminishes. Perhaps the time is not far off when rulers cease to sell out their peoples for American money.
Where Did We Go Wrong?
(by Chris Moore) -- When did American leadership, for all intents and purposes, become what can only be described as sadistic, totalitarian, colonialist and evil?
I think it’s fair to say contemporary America has devolved into a kind of heir to the British Empire at its worst, with similarly nakedly base motives.
I think its also fair to say in some ways it’s an accidental Empire that earned its mantle by winning WWII and later the Cold War, and became THE global superpower by means of design, attrition and momentum.
Indeed, we might have remained a somewhat benign superpower as we were in the ashes of WWII indefinitely and even dismantled enough of the Empire to keep America solvent after the Cold War had we listened to true patriots like Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan. Instead, insatiable, supremacist, Zionist Jewry was allowed to get its hooks in up and down the Establishment, and look at us now.
Getting deceived and hoodwinked into the Iraq war and war against Islam by our corrupt elites (not to mention the likelihood that 9/11 was an inside job) are exactly the kinds of black ops and political machinations and intrigue that follow supremacist Jewry around like a bad odor. They are a people in permanent revolution against the Christian order, against Gentile order, against any kind of non-Jewish moral order, including Islamic civilization.
Some of the worst characteristics of the worst elements of Zionist Jewry (haughtiness, an epic sense of entitlement, insatiable greed, racist delusions of grandeur) are also all too common among a certain subset of the corrupted elites of English heritage in America. I think it's no coincidence that so many of these Judeo-Christian Zionists and Judeophile liberals are of an English heritage and Protestant background that has for all intents and purposes turned its back on the "anti-Semitic" (anti-Judeofascist) Christianity of traditional Protestantism and Western Civilization, and also turned its back on the noble ethos manifested in the struggle for individual liberty and human rights produced by the people of the British Isles as epitomized by the Magna Carta, and by people of British origin as embodied by the U.S. Founders and epitomized by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
Instead, they have adopted a colonial world view of elitism, racial supremacy and epic entitlement that parallels that of their Israeli and diaspora Jewish Zionist partners -- a colonial world view that is increasingly similar to that of occupying British colonialists when they were at their worst -- particularly with regard to the contemporary U.S. elite's insistence on occupying, exploiting, and oppressing Arab and Islamic lands, which implicates all Americans, including those of good will and Christian temperament, in their evil enterprise.
I don’t believe that DNA is destiny, but I do believe it plays a huge role in our political attitudes, and I do believe that environment can even change DNA and how people consequently view the world politically. I believe the political DNA of many American "elites" has been Judaized by the toxic Judeophile and Jewish supremacist American political, cultural and social environment of the last several decades, particularly among elites of English heritage already prone to arrogance and self-importance.
I believe if left free of toxic statist social engineering, man’s organic (natural/default) state in a neutral environment like that of the relative peace and prosperity attained by Western Civilization is generally Christian in outlook, hence “anti-Semitic” (anti-Judeofascist, anti-psychopathically tribal). But just as the Jewish Bolsheviks tried to use the authoritarian state to Judaize the Russian people in order to make them more pliable to Jewry's will, and succeeded for a time, U.S. Jewish Zionists have used a pseudo-secular, coercive state starting with FDR socialism (which utilized the public schools and a constantly growing, ever more influential and intrusive Big Government) to displace the Christian moral order in America. And this swindling, neo-socialist leviathan has become positively colonial to the point of near fascism under the neolib/neoconned contemporary U.S. ruling regime.
In short, it’s taken extraordinary statist-Left, statist-Liberal, and State Capitalist measures for Zionist Jewry and its collaborators to bash the Christianity out of modern American man, and they’ve largely succeeded —- possibly in partnership with pseudo-Christian, corrupt "elites," many of whom have an entitled English background to match that of the racist, insatiably greedy English elites that oversaw the worst of the British Empire, and whom the U.S. Founders were driven to usher off of American soil by force of arms to save themselves and the freedoms of their fledgling country.
It may be nearing time for yet another political insurrection against the greedy, arrogant and haughty Judaized elites who are again threatening the viability of the country by way of their sickening, imperious, and destructive totalitarian project which has blown back on American interests and freedoms to a ridiculous extent, made a mockery of the Christian moral order to an unbearable extent, and today threatens the very fabric of the Republic to an intolerable extent.
