The Great Purge

Opinion from the aging fingers of Chuq

My regular readers (I love you guys) know that from time to time I like to connect today’s news with something historic…….I admit it I love my history….there is so much cool stuff in history that if you do not know it then you are missing so much…….

Recently I did a post about the firings of on-air personalities for MSNBC………I believe that this is a purge of on-air truly progressive voices by ComCast…….what started off as an experiment has turned into an ugly corporate purge…….

And now for that historic perspective……..

Throughout history there have been purges…..that is the elimination of people that are not on the prescribed page…….people that could bring down any given paradigm that is being groomed for the people…….

The first purge I want to use as an example is the Night of the Long Knives…….the year is 1934 and Hitler orders the arrest and deaths of Ernst Rohm the leader of the SA (Brown shirts)…….after he was killed the upper leadership was like arrest and executed…..after that was accomplished Hitler and the SS went after academics, writers, anyone that was in opposition to the Nazi Party……the official total was 85 deaths although the count was much higher…..the killing spree lasted from 30 June through 3 July 1934…….

The next purge was that of Stalin in the USSR……..this purge lasted from 1935 through 1938………

It involved a large-scale purge of the Communist Party and government officials, repression of peasants and the Red Army leadership, and widespread police surveillance, suspicion of “saboteurs”, imprisonment, and arbitrary executions……..It involved a large-scale purge of the Communist Party and government officials, repression of peasants and the Red Army leadership, and widespread police surveillance, suspicion of “saboteurs”, imprisonment, and arbitrary executions……..over a million were imprisoned and about 680,000 were executed…….

These are extremes to what is capable when power mad dicks “clean house”………there is a purge going on now in the MSM……..the leadership at MSNBC is purging all progressive voices from their show line-up……

Recently it was announced that MSNBC would be cancelling the Ed Show and Now with Alex Wagner…..also they have axed the Cycle, their roundtable discussion show that has seldom issued any progressive views, I think that it was just too boring even for the toads at corporate morons at ComCast…….

This is sad for Ed Show was a true voice of the working person and Alex Wagner was a true voice of feminism and progressive thought….sad to see them go…..but I do not think that ComCast is finished…..there is still Rev Al Sharpton whose voice for black America is needed and Chris Hayes who was a writer for the Nation a progressive voice then there is Lawrence O’Donnell, a Left leaning pundit and Melissa Harris-Perry another voice of progressive thought…….

On MSNBC no one with a progressive voice will be safe…..it may take awhile but ComCast will find a way to silence the progressives in favor of psuedo-intelligent thought like Morning Joe and that woman (trying to be nice here) Mika…..

Granted MSNBC’s purge will not be as messy or violent as those of Hitler and Stalin….but the result will be the same……silence dissident voices.

How long will it take MSNBC to make a clean sweep?

USS Liberty: End Of The Day

Today I have chosen to remind my readers that there are moments in our history that too few care to remember……mainly because it will change the paradigm that has been constructed in their minds.  It may seem like I was hitting everyone around the head…..but sometimes redundancy is the best way to get a thing remembered……

First I would like to thank all my readers that helped get the story out……..the more that know the story the sooner these veterans can get the justice they richly deserve.

The Israelis attacked and killed and maimed a total of 205 American sailors and few care…….but let 4 people die in Libya and they go batcrap crazy……..these people should be ashamed of the cowardly act of not holding Israel responsible for American deaths and injuries……

I have given my readers six articles on the incident and I suggest that they check it out for themselves……all the Googling can be done and in the end there is but one conclusion……Israel murdered American sailors…..call it what you like but this country has done a major disservice to our serving troops by sweeping this attack under the closest rug.

I hope that you, my reader, have gotten a perspective on this attack  and you join with me in remembering our fallen comrades.

This will not be the last time you hear from me on this incident……..for I refuse to let these men die in vain and unremembered…….hopefully you will also.

Thanx for your time and attention………

ISIS: Attack On Texas

Opinion from the fingers of Chuq

Garland, Texas was the scene of the newest terrorist attack in the US……the media is doing what it always does……speculating and misleading…..and will give the purveyors of hate a national stage from which to preach and the hate group that set up the cartoon fest has been validated….and now word has come to light that it was an ISIS operation……

Personally I think it has little do actually do with ISIS….it was lone wolves and terrorists wannabes…..but I am not alone in my disbelief of this being an ISIS operation…….

While ISIS sought to claim credit for the weekend attack on a cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, officials say this is almost certainly false, and that the attackers were probably lone wolves attacking on their own.

Homeland Security Chair Rep. Michael McCaul (R – TX) said the evidence pointed toward the attack not being directed by ISIS, “but rather inspired by them,” calling it a “textbook case of what we’re most concerned about.”

For decades so-called terrorists have been claiming responsibility for attacks that had little to do with them…….it is a propaganda tool….it is that simple.

To me these guys were wannabes because that showed NO training at all…..I mean the only other person hurt in the attack was a security officer who was shot in the ankle (someone needs to explain how that happened……I am sure it will be an interesting tale)…….

This was a lone wolf operation from start to finish carried out by amateurs…..to speculate that this is somehow a coordinated attack is misinformation and disingenuous…..

Americans are so afraid of the words “Muslim” and “Islam” that they will believe any scenario that feeds that fear.  But what this story will do is feed the fears and give more clout to the hate mongers that get rich off that fear.

SONY: “A Sucker Born Every Minute”

Holding true to form the American public has once again illustrated just how easy they can be manipulated.

Yes, I am talking about a second rate comedy, “The Interview”.

After Sony’s U-turn on releasing The Interview, the controversial movie played in 331 independent cinemas across America on Christmas Day, often to sellout crowds. Many moviegoers made it clear they were there to take a political stand, with one ticket seller in California dressed as “Uncle Sam-ty Claus,” the New York Times reports. “We are taking a stand for freedom,” the manager of the Cinema Village East in Manhattan tells the AP. “We want to show the world that Americans will not be told what we can or cannot watch. Personally, I am not afraid.” Security was light at most theaters, though some had police officers standing by.

Co-directors Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen made a surprise appearance at a screening in Los Angeles, where they thanked moviegoers for their support, reports Reuters. A North Korean diplomat, meanwhile, called the release an “unpardonable mockery” of the “dignity of our supreme leader,” but said there would probably be no “physical reaction” from Pyongyang. In a first for a major studio, the movie had a simultaneous release online. The groundbreaking release strategy is being closely watched by the industry, although Sony says it won’t release any immediate data on the number of sales or rentals, CNN reports.

A pathetic display of blind consumerism……Americans allowed the media to frame the idea that it was somehow “patriotic” to defy North Korea and buy an overpriced ticket to watch second class actors do a very bad movie.

Their moronic action shows two things….1–the American public is gullible and  2–they are more than willing to throw their money at a corporation that does not need it.  All in the name of some misplaced loyalty.

The people did not disappoint me at all…….I said it was all an act just to boost profits for a bad movie…..

Have you noticed that since SONY got the PR they needed to guarantee a big opening for this movie….it seems to be NO story.  But never fear we have a new air crash to dangle in front of the people.

I wish to thank the American people prove my point for me……..and a Happy Year to you….Sony is laughing all the way to the bank.

Why Do We Trust Israel?

Opinion from the desk of the Editor:

 

How about a change of pace?  By now most Americans are so confused that they will turn to snack food as a diversion………and the war goes on.

The other day I was doing what I always do…….reading the international news looking for info that would make good posts for this site……and I came across a story about Israel and the US Congress……

I know that Israel is pulling out all stops to try and prevent any actions for their devastating assault on Gaza…..there has even been rumblings of taking them in front of the international courts for their actions.  The story I reads was a letter sent by that Israel owned senator Kelley Ayotte….it seems this broad has put together a letter and got a wealth of her buds to sign on and mailed it to John Kerry…..but my fave part was this line…….

U.S. Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Bob Casey (D-PA), a member of the National Security Working Group, announced that they’ve led a letter signed by 88 senators to Secretary of State John Kerry urging the Administration to take steps to ensure that no assistance is diverted to Hamas, support the Palestinian Authority’s effort to govern in Gaza, and discourage Palestinian unilateral measures at the United Nations and International Criminal Court that bypass direct negotiations and undermine the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

You can read the rest of this con job here……

Sounds like they are running scared and are begging the US to pull their butts out of an international fire……after all Israel pays good money for these Americans to do their bidding.

This got me to thinking of past incidents that would make anyone suspicious of their intentions……..

The first incident that I question is the unprovoked attack on a Navy ship, the USS Liberty…..Israel attack the American sigint ship in 1967 killing 34 American sailors and wounding 171……and they got away with it….basically a “oops, my bad”…….Strike One

Next was the Beirut bombing of the Marine barracks in 1983……..the Marines were sent to Beirut by the Reagan admin as a peacekeeping force…….two truck bombs were detonated by a group calling itself “Islamic Jihad” killing 299 soldiers, American and French.

The US spent a couple of years trying to identify the culprits…..we were having little success and the US turned to its only ‘friend’ in the region, Israel.  Their intel service, the Moussad, had people in the region and provided intel to the US…..they said that a shi’a cleric named sheikh Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah was the head of Hezbollah and authorized the bombs.  The CIA formed a plan to kill this person with a truck bomb……which was detonated killing 80 people and injuring about 200 and none of them was the target……shortly there after the CIA learned the Fadlallah had little to no connection to Hezbollah what so ever.  Strike two

The next occasion to use Israeli intel was after the Berlin bombing of the bar La Belle in 1986…..a Libyan agent detonated a bomb in the night club killing and wounding Americans…once again the CIA was tasked into taking out Qaddafi who they identified as the person ordering the hit on Americans.  The US came up with a plan to take out the leader at the same time as it was punishing the country for the attack……again the problem was that the CIA had no assets on the ground in Tripoli and they once again turning to their buds at Moussad for help.  The day of the attack the Israelis were watching Qaddafi’s compound to make sure he would be working when the hit came….they reported that Qaddafi was working in his tent….with confirmation 3 minutes later the bombs landed on his compound.  The raid was a success but Qaddafi was not in his tent at the time.  Strike Three.

Those are three strikes against Israel for being a ‘friend’ and ally to the US.  Also there have been numerous spies that were Americans working for Israel……

Their, Israel’s, biggest bullshit situation is the one of Iranian nukes……since the early 80’s according to Israeli intel Iran has been from a couple of months to as much as 3 years away from acquiring a nuke weapon…..and so far they still do not have such a weapon.  But that does not stop Israel from spreading fear…..recently at the UN BiBi said that Iran was more threatening that ISIS….same old tired lament.

I do not understand the utter acceptance by Americans of Israel….they have proven over and over that they care less about us as a people…….it is time for the US to break its addiction to all things Israeli.

Israel is NO friend…all they see is a wallet stuffed with cash when they look at the US.

Why to we Americans continue to trust a country with a proven track record contrary actions.  But America like the good little lap dog that we are and do whatever master Israel wants us to do……..they are GUILTY to crimes against humanity in their war on Gaza.

Americans demanded action for the death of two Americans at the hands of ISIS….but gave Israel a pass for killing 34 Americans….where is the logic there?

The United States needs to STOP trusting anything that Israel says….their contempt for the US is well documented…….

 

STOP Coddling Israel!

Something completely different today…………….I have a full day of doctors and lectures today….so I will be depending on drafts that I have saved……

Now that the war on Palestinians is over (for now) there is a full court press to protect Israel from any repercussions from there all out destruction of Gaza…….According to U.S. Congressman Steve Israel (D-NY), the Israeli government hopes that he and his colleagues in Washington, DC will do everything in their power to prevent the International Criminal Court from pushing forward with possible war crimes charges against his nation over its recent attack on the Gaza Strip which resulted in the killing over nearly 1,900 Palestinians, including a large proportion of civilians and hundreds of children.

The US Senate rushed to the aid if Israel with Senate Resolution #526…..

Bill text available as:

The US just repeats the lies that Israel spreads…like the tunnel thing….and that the war was about getting Hamas…..the war was about total destruction of the Gaza infrastructure, nothing else….and the whole democracy thing is also a lie……elections do not make a democracy…………time for the US to do the right thing and cut the cord!

And now the nuclear Middle East……….

After spurning the Syria-backed resolution, the IAEA voted 117-0 in favor of an Egypt version that called on “all states in the region” to join the NPT. Israel is the only nation in the entire region that is not a member of the NPT, so it effectively urges the exact same thing, just avoiding mentioning Israel by name.

At that time, during the NPT’s own conference, the United States signed and loudly endorsed a call for a “nuclear free Middle East.” When it was pointed out after the conference that this meant Israel, the only nuclear-armed nation, the State Department issued a statement of “deep regret” over the deal, complaining it unfairly singled out Israel.

The US has been covering Israel’s ass since 1948…….at what point does it become monotonous……..it is about time that Israel stand on their own and start taking responsibility for their actions.  They have become a bully….and a bully with protectors in their pockets.

As long as their money is spread around like peanut butter among our politicians there will never be a point that we do not bend to their, Israel’s, will.

I know…..I know….I am a dreamer….as long as the defense contractors can make money we will forever be kneeling to Israel……a position that America has become too comfortable with after so many years.

As my reader can tell….. I have become truly disgusted with the situation.
