‘SORRY SON, BUT YOUR DAD DIED FOR NOTHING’

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

The most precious thing a bereaved little boy can cling to is that his brave soldier dad died making the world a better place for others. Barack Obama has deprived him even of that. Forty Australian families and 4,000 American families will now need to look forever at a photo on a wall and think, “what an awful waste”.

Warlord tyrants Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi were unique. They had a rare ability to govern disparate tribal savagery with a clever mix of bullshit and cruel iron fists. Kill one and you had better fill the void quickly before a whole nation implodes as has Iraq and Libya.

Installing weak puppet rulers bent on vengeance in their place shows how far removed America is from the reality of an Arab world of atavistic Barbarism that is spilling West.

A loose coalition, including Australia, can never fill the role of training Iraqis to defend themselves. They are the sons of the cowards of the “million-strong” Republican Guard of Saddam Hussein who dropped their weapons and fled when confronted invading Kuwait.

You can’t train a coward to be brave and Arabs have never been known for their bravery, just ask the diminutive State of Israel.

But Obama’s legacy will not be an honourable one, in fact he, like the Iraqis, will also be remembered for cowardice in the face of the enemy. He will be remembered for setting the entire middle-east on fire from a distance and igniting a nuclear arms race in the worst place possible as Saudi Arabia now looks to purchase a nuclear weapon of the same grade Obama has allowed the Iranians.

He has alienated the West’s only fair dinkum ally, Israel and backed the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader, Morsi who Egypt’s new illegitimate regime has just sentenced to death. Egypt has now turned its back on the West in disgust.

Even Obama’s favourite oil rich savages, the Saudis, no longer trust him, refusing his invitation to a summit. Jordan is going it alone as the only State now separating Iran and Israel.

ISIS is rampaging unchallenged through Ramadi on its way to Baghdad, a city of seven million, while Iran usurps the US military’s role in Iraq. Libya and northern Africa are in meltdown with thousands of refugees afloat somewhere between the Barbary Coast and Europe.

A hundred thousand more are flooding to South East Asia with Indonesia ironically turning back boats to nowhere. Europe, including Turkey, has given up on a million more refugees.

The Syrian rebel “moderates” Obama trained to defeat Assad have now become ISIS, sporting US materiel, while an alienated Russia supplies arms to Assad and Turkey buys stolen Iraqi oil in exchange for ISIS destroying the Kurds and Christian ethnics on its borders.

The insidious Taliban has aligned with ISIS as the US withdraws from Afghanistan creating an extremist Islamic leviathan with the despised West in their cross hairs... well done Obama.

The worst Administration in US history has created an Asian and African nuclear powder keg but Obama has not only left his fingerprints on the Middle-east, he has created a tsunami of refugees flooding through his own southern borders. He has supplied Mexican drug cartels with arms, hoping they will kill each other off.

Could that possibly be his inane tactic in the Middle-East too?

If it is, then it’s not working there either because only innocent civilian families are dying horrible deaths in their thousands and those who have the money to escape are enriching people smugglers to add to the worst world-wide refugee crisis in history.

And these are not our country shoppers, they are genuine refugees.

How will this tearful little boy be able to explain to his children what their grandfather died for?

Memorial Day Is A Hoax

Memorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. US Marine General Smedley Butler challenged this view. He said that our soldiers died for the profits of the bankers, Wall Street, Standard Oil, and the United Fruit Company. Here is an excerpt from a speech that he gave in 1933:
.
War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
.
I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.
.
I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.
.
There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies, its “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.
.
It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.
.
I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

.
I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.
.
During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.
.
Most American soldiers died fighting foes who posed no threat to the United States. Our soldiers died for secret agendas of which they knew nothing. Capitalists hid their self-interests behind the flag, and our boys died for the One Percent’s bottom line.
.
Jade Helm, an exercise that pits the US military against the US public, is scheduled to run July 15 through September 15. What is the secret agenda behind Jade Helm?
.
The Soviet Union was a partial check on capitalist looting in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. However, with the Soviet collapse capitalist looting intensified during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama regimes.
.
Neoliberal Globalization is now looting its own constituent parts and the planet itself. Americans, Greeks, Irish, British, Italians, Ukrainians, Iraqis, Libyans, Argentinians, the Spanish and Portuguese are being looted of their savings, pensions, social services, and job opportunities, and the planet is being turned into a wasteland by capitalists sucking the last penny out of the environment. As Claudia von Werlhof writes, predatory capitalism is consuming the globe.
.
" Anti-trust laws have lost all power since the transnational corporations set the norms. It is the corporations – not “the market” as an anonymous mechanism or “invisible hand” – that determine today’s rules of trade, for example prices and legal regulations. This happens outside any political control. Speculation with an average twenty percent profit margin edges out honest producers who become “unprofitable”.[9] Money becomes too precious for comparatively non-profitable, long-term projects, or projects that only – how audacious! – serve a good life. Money instead “travels upwards” and disappears. Financial capital determines more and more what the markets are and do.[10] By delinking the dollar from the price of gold, money creation no longer bears a direct relationship to production”.[11] Moreover, these days most of us are – exactly like all governments – in debt. It is financial capital that has all the money – we have none.[12]......."

We need a memorial day to commemorate the victims of neoliberal globalization. All of us are its victims, and in the end the capitalists also.

And I hope they dont take back those who left to fight and now want to return - many on DAP due to "depression" because heard today costs $3000 a week to keep 1 person in Risdon Prison in Tassie so most likely similar amount on the mainland and do we want to add this cost to our already huge cost of keeping many of these people who wont assimilate as not allowed to under their culture - Islam is total way of life - Sharia Law comes before any other so when taking citizenship in any country cannot do it in truth and stay a Muslim as cannot put any Law above Sharia. It is impossible to 'un-radicalize' someone. Jihad is the duty of every Muslim. Huge mistake to take them back. Dont like the life but wont change cant or a non-Muslim subject to death.

Too true Pablo.

Missionchris.. You know the way 50 338 308 223 45 9 at the end of the day it will probably come down to one of those.

TS, If it as you say being funded/trained and operated by others I don't the mainstream or moderates doing much, if anything to get back to the "religion of peace" that they still maintain that it is! Cheers!

TS We will have to agree to disagree. Our opinions are at incompatible odds. maybe another topic may arise and we will see if that changes. cheers.

Ah yes, don,t worry about my cage, it is the prison of your own mind I would be concerned with.

ISIS is just those whom have successfully completed the Qur'an training manual.The other Islamic followers are ALL studying the same manual of warfare. It should be in the same league as Mien Kampf. Relegated to Libraries as an example of Terror incorporated.

It's just too easy to rattle your cage.

Micky, perhaps you had better go and live in California, and by the way this is planned worldwide in case you don't realise it. David Icke and others have been warning people about this for years, the coming of the police state.

(NaturalNews) California will be the origin of America's first wave of medical police state refugees fleeing medical tyranny if Gov. Jerry Brown signs SB 277 into law.
SB 277 is California's Pharma-funded vaccine assault on all parents and children. It would eliminate all personal belief exemptions and force nearly all children in California to be forcibly injected with vaccines that are knowingly manufactured with neurotoxic substances such as mercury, aluminium, formaldehyde and MSG.
If he signs the law, Gov. Brown will be declaring medical genocide against children whose genetic makeup causes them to have extremely heightened risks to vaccine injury. No child will be safe in California, and the state will cement its position as the first real-life medical police state in America, where risks of a medical civil war skyrocket.
Natural News has heard from dozens of readers who tell us they are making preparations to flee the state if SB 277 is signed into law. Mandatory vaccines at gunpoint are "the last straw," according to one mom who wrote Natural News about her concerns. "All these state senators voting for the bill received campaign donations from the drug companies. They sold us out to the corporate interests. There's nothing else we can do but leave..."
Other parents are looking at pulling their children out of public schools (government-run indoctrination centres) and home schooling them instead. This effort, of course, has enormous economic consequences for a family, so not all parents can structure their child's education around home schooling.
California, where "green living" became government-run medical tyranny
California has historically been home to parents who sought a green-living, natural lifestyle that was relatively free from toxic chemicals. If SB 277 is signed into law, the California government would force potentially deadly chemicals onto all the children across the state, betraying the core principles of medical choice, medical ethics and compassion for children.
Green living, in other words, would be replaced by medical tyranny. And if the state decides it can force one medical intervention on parents and their children, then it will of course ratchet that up to any number of dangerous medical interventions it wants to force upon the population. Remember: a state that doesn't respect a woman's choice about medical interventions is a medical police state.

Vaccines provably cause brain damage and death in many children. Just recently, the UK government agreed to pay out $90 million in financial compensation to families of children who were brain damaged by the swine flu vaccine. Similarly, the secretive U.S. Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out nearly $3 billion in compensation for children who were provably harmed or killed by vaccine injury side effects in the United States.
The CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson went public in 2014 with proof that the CDC committed scientific fraud to cover up links between vaccines and autism in African-American children. The entire lamestream media blackballed the story in a massive, coordinated conspiracy to silence the truth and promote the financial interests of their corporate sponsors.
It has since been learned that the CDC is not a branch of the federal government but a private corporation operating in total violation of U.S. law. The CDC even trains and deploys intelligence operatives like Nurse Hickox to spread false propaganda about infectious disease.

The creation of a nationwide, false flag epidemic medical police state
Many intelligent observers now believe the CDC is the key architect behind a nationwide push for an epidemic-driven medical police state. "Epidemics" are the perfect Orwellian enemy that never goes away, and as long as the CDC can fake the hysteria surrounding epidemics -- its claim that the flu kills 35,000 people a year is pure fiction -- it can seize control of the country's public health domain.

The CDC's pushing of false disease hysteria goes all the way back to the discovery of AIDS, after which the CDC went berserk, claiming that even straight married men were going to be overrun by the epidemic. Congress responded with billions in new funding, and the CDC learned an important lesson: the more hysteria it can create around infectious disease, the more powerful it becomes.

The contrived Disneyland measles outbreak was another example of how the CDC masterminded mass hysteria to push a medical police state agenda. In reality, the measles "outbreak" was extremely small and no one died. Yet the CDC uses the hysteria to push for mandatory vaccines that will kill, maim or injure thousands of children each year in California alone. The "treatment" is worse than the disease! But the hysteria and fear mongering are necessary to maintain total dictatorial control in the medical police state.

What we really have in America today is what journalist Jon Rappoport called "Totalitarian science." This is government-run pseudoscience enforced at gunpoint. Alongside the government gunpoint enforcement, you also have total censorship of all scientific questions about vaccines, total media censorship of any dialog or discussion about vaccine injury, and really what can only be called "runaway vaccine injury denialism" among the entire medical establishment, whose harmful actions against children really do parallel the Nazi Holocaust in terms of its pharma origins and utter abandonment of medical ethics.

California Gov. Jerry Brown, an unapologetic Big Government statist, is playing right into the hands of the CDC and the medical police state with SB 277. If he signs it into law, he will be reinforcing the effectiveness of staged "pandemic paranoia" schemes while enslaving tens of millions of people in a medical police state structure from which the CDC and the vaccine industry can demand UNLIMITED vaccinations at any time, for any contrived reason.
Even more shockingly, such vaccinations can be demanded and required no matter what toxic chemicals the vaccines contain. There is no exemption against vaccines made with mercury, for example. There's no exemption against vaccines formulated with formaldehyde, another potent neurotoxin. SB 277 would make California the first state in America which forces its own people to be neurologically poisoned with medical injections.
That's probably why so many people who wish to protect their own neurological function are deciding to flee the state. It's the simple principle of "cognitive self-defense." If you want to have a healthy brain, you have to leave California entirely.
The hilarious upshot of all this, of course, is that the only people left behind will be those with damaged brains who continue to vote for more corrupt bureaucrats to keep poisoning them. Welcome to Collapsifornia, where the inmates are truly running the asylum.

Islam has morphed into a death cult!

The Shadow Treasurer has confirmed Labor will support five Coalition policy measures when they're put to the Senate. The changes are expected to equate to 2.4 billion dollars in budget savings and include items, such as the No Jab No Pay policy.

Ahhh, So this is why all the anti vaccination chatter was happening yesterday.
The negativity is about the turning off the welfare tap for those who don't participate in the vaccination programs.
It's always a case of 'follow the money'.

David I diddn't think you were quite that stupid but you have proved me wrong.

Run a car on water you mean? The only thing they would be threatened with is public humiliation!

I mean I know someone who HAS DONE IT. and has also been threatened.

So what do you mean "like it is possible to run an internal combustion engine without fuel as we know or understand it". The usual claim is that people can run internal combustion engines on water. So what did you have in mind?

David, you can fuck right off with a comment like that. I said nothing about running a car on water.

Of FFS Marco, you're not going to tell me you can run an engine on water are you?

And why are Buddhists, whose philosophy is peace, driving these muslim Rohingya, whose philosophy is death, out? No one in politics or the media will tell us.
