The best protection shield for Bernie ...

by system failure

After the triumph of Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, the momentum that he gains puts him in the game for good. The establishment remains at the "elevated-high" level for now, but it is likely to climb at the "severe" top, in case that he will manage to maintain his momentum towards Super Tuesday.

Bernie's clear positions are making nervous many US deep state components. The military–industrial complex senses a clear threat for the defence industry profits because of Bernie's approach of non-war solutions concerning the US foreign policy.

The private health and insurance industry will lose billions from a free healthcare system for all the US citizens, while those who invest on the perspective of a fully privatized education system, will see their dreams and their prospects for significant profits, going backwards. Not to mention the huge losses for the currently flourishing student-loan industry in the United States. Plus, the Wall Street mafia will have to pay more taxes for the return of the public healthcare and free education.

The banking industry also senses a serious threat from Bernie's intention to regulate the financial system because its lobbyists work on the opposite direction, seeking even more deregulation, always at the expense of the taxpayers and the real economy.

The Sanders "storm" comes in the most critical moment for the banking/corporate lobbyists across the globe. They seek to promote quickly every major TTIP-type agreement to secure the absolute domination of the global neo-Feudal system. Bernie doesn't hide his words even on this matter. He is very clear. As mentioned in previous article: “... Hillary avoided to stand directly against NAFTA and TPP agreements who are designed by the lobbyists to serve the interests of the big banks and corporations. She actually implied that they need to be improved. Bernie instead, spoke clearly against these agreements, because he knows very well that such agreements further empower the banking-corporate interests at the expense of the workers and the majority of the people.

The international banking/corporate lobby network understands that all these agreements, are heavily correlated with the policies that will be promoted by the new US government. Their viability is directly dependent on these policies. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who says things that the lobbyists don't want to hear. And this means war because they are not going to sit back and accept the possibility of Sanders to be the next US president. We are talking about huge interests here. They spent years and millions in lobbying to reach one step before the consolidation of their absolute sovereignty through a global neo-Feudalism. They don't want even to think that they may walk backwards.

Bernie moves smartly and builds a unique relationship with the people. He calls for direct donations from them and receives millions. No lobbyists, no specific interests, nothing between them. People at last have their truly own guy coming from nowhere to take the power from the corporate/financial mafia.

As all eyes and ears increasingly concentrate on Bernie, it becomes more difficult for the establishment to "get rid" of him. But it's only a matter of time before the corporate media wear the extreme pseudo-patriotic mask in order to mobilize some lunatic nationalists who will act completely unpredictable.

But now is the time for the American people to fight back and make clear that they are determined to win this war. That they are determined to prevent neo-Feudals to establish their global hegemony for good. Therefore, the best protection shield for Bernie, will be the extended, solid support of the American people.

  2. Not just support. We're researching local candidates, and finding people to challenge the corrupted ones. We are literally seizing the government. Find a group of volunteers and participate. I am not normally a reddit user, but there is a large group there with connections to local grassroots efforts. Seek it out! This is a swarm, it will only work if there's lots of us.

  5. Hillary Clinton has stated that being president is about "Hard Choices". She’s right…but most of her "Hard Choices", by her own admission, have been wrong.
    For decades Hillary was adamantly opposed to LGBT rights. Now she claims to be for it.
    She promoted Fracking while she was Secretary of State. She is personally invested in Keystone XL Pipeline. She pushed for TPP and referred to it as the ”Gold Standard” many times.
    She does not support a $15 minimum wage. She is FOR the Death Penalty and Prisons for Profit. She is against Free College Education.
    Hillary was adamantly against Gay marriage as late as 2013. Bernie, in 1985, as Mayor of Burlington set aside a day to be known as "Gay Pride Day."
    Hillary has received millions from Wall Street. Bernie’s top donors are Labor Unions, Teacher Unions, and Nursing Unions and has over TWO MILLION individual contributions averaging $28. Hillary's Top Contributors: Morgan Stanley $636,564, Lehman Brothers $362,853, JP Morgan Chase $696,456, Goldman Sachs $760,740, Credit Suisse $318,120, Citigroup $824,402.
    Hillary was a supporter of the Iraq War. Bernie was completely against the war and repeatedly called out Bush for his deliberate misinformation.
    Hillary is against bringing back Glass Steagall Act. Bernie wants to bring back Glass Steagall.
    Hillary participated in Republican campaigns for years. Bernie has always been an independent and has always caucused with Democrats.
    Bernie Sanders marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and was arrested for protesting segregation. Hillary Clinton campaigned for Barry Goldwater, who opposed the Supreme Court's power to enforce school integration, voted in the Senate against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and whose campaign platform included his promise to repeal the legislation. The Clintons also celebrated "Confederate Flag Day" every year when Bill was governor of Arkansas.

It seems that Bernie Sanders got it all wrong again, this time regarding the situation in Venezuela - very disappointing

globinfo freexchange
In an unfortunate series of tweets regarding the situation in Venezuela, Bernie Sanders exposed his weak spot again on foreign policy matters.
Sanders tweeted:
The Maduro government has waged a violent crackdown on Venezuelan civil society, violated the constitution by dissolving the National Assembly and was re-elected last year in an election many observers said was fraudulent. The economy is a disaster and millions are migrating. 1/3 — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) January 24, 2019
The United States should support the rule of law, fair elections and self-determination for the Venezuelan people. We must condemn the use of violence against unarmed protesters and the suppression of dissent. 2/3 — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) January 24, 2019
But we must learn the lessons of the past and not be in the business of regime change or supporting coups—as we have in Chile, Guatemala, Brazil & the DR. The US has a long history of inappropriately intervening in Latin Amer…

Canada has been trying to destabilize Venezuela at least since 2004

globinfo freexchange
Paul Jay, editor in chief at The Real News, gave some very interesting information - some based on personal experience - about Canada's total alignment with the US on its imperialist missions against Venezuela and other countries:
Mexico was part of the Lima Group, but now with the new leadership - with AMLO now taking office in Mexico - Mexico is not going along with this plan to recognize Juan Guaido. And Mexico is not the only country of the region. Many, many countries of CARICOM have come forward and have said they do not support this plan. So, the corporate media is trying to make this sound like the whole region is on board with this scheme.
For months, Canada has been playing a leading role in preparing for - according to the Canadian newspapers - for exactly what happened, the recognition of Juan Guaido.
And Canada has been into this scheme for months. And the rationale is supposedly that the election of 2017 was not a legitimate election because people w…

Former Pentagon official confirms: Trump prepares for war with Iran

globinfo freexchange
Right after Trump's sudden announcement that he will withdraw the US forces from Syria, we had some mixed reactions. Some liberals reacted angrily, but most of the reactions from the liberal machine were rather moderate, or at least not as intensive as someone would normally expect.
On the other hand, Trump's supporters and all those who had enough of the pro-war neoliberal establishment, felt a kind of vindication, as it appeared that Trump would eventually keep its promise for an 'anti-interventionist' policy.
But the blog wrote immediately a 'not so fast' article to explain that most of the Americans and all those who are tired of the US endless wars, should not rush to celebrate. We estimated that Trump's move is probably a sign that he is going to re-organize troops and go after the big target called Iran.
Indeed, shortly after the move, Trump, suddenly again, announced that he will also pullout troops from Afghanistan.
And then, about…

When Venezuela's state-owned Citgo was aiding poor Americans with a 'fuel for heating systems' program

globinfo freexchange
A report from 2011 proves that the Venezuelan government designed a special program to aid the poorest US citizens overcome funding difficulties to heat their homes, through Citgo Petroleum Corporation, subsidiary of the state-run company PDVSA.
Citgo's heating fuel program began in 2005 after the passing of the hurricanes Rita and Katrina, but it didn't stop there. It continued uninterrupted for several years under Hugo Chávez' administration:
For seventh year in a row, the CITGO Petroleum Corporation (or CITGO), subsidiary of the state-run company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), will aid poor communities of the United States (US) with a program of fuel for heating systems.
CITGO president Alejandro Granado, through a press released in the website of Venezuela's embassy to the United States, said the increasing costs of energy continue affecting the quality of life of millions of US citizens and community organizations in that …

Pompeo's special tweet potentially indirect threat against those who won't follow the orders on Venezuela

globinfo freexchange
After John Bolton indirectly threatened Venezuela with that 'accidental' revelation of about 5,000 US troops to be sent to Colombia, it was Mike Pompeo's turn.
In a peculiar tweet, the other major Trump warhawk essentially sent a clear message to those countries (mostly under the US influence) that refused to recognize Washington's puppet, Juan Guaidó, as the legitimate president of Venezuela.
Pompeo named one by one the countries that obeyed to Washington's orders: “We applaud Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Rep., Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden & UK for supporting Venezuelan people by recognizing @jguaido today as Interim President.
And then he placed a map, colouring the obeyed countries and the US with the same intense color.

#HandsOffVenezuela: Brave Italians show us the path of resistance against the European branch of the neoliberal beast

According to RT, Italy vetoed EU recognition of Venezuelan opposition leader Guaido. As RT reported:
Rome has effectively derailed an EU statement meant to recognize Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim leader if President Nicolas Maduro fails to set up snap elections, a Five Star Movement source confirmed to RT.
Italy announced the veto at an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers that started on January 31 in Romania, the source said. The statement, which was supposed to be delivered by EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini recognized Guaido as interim president if snap elections were not held.
The European Parliament is the first European body to recognize Guaido “as the only legitimate interim president of the country until new free, transparent and credible presidential elections can be called in order to restore democracy.
The parliament urged the EU to follow suit but the effort stalled due to internal discord.…

Government shutdown, Venezuela: Donald Trump evolves into the best propagator of neoliberal fascism that tends to become a norm

by system failure
Even before the 2016 US presidential election, this blog supported that Donald Trump is a pure sample of neoliberal barbarism. Many almost laughed at this perception because Trump was being already promoted, more or less, as the 'terminator' of the neoliberal establishment. And many people, especially in the US, tired from the economic disasters, the growing inequality and the endless wars, were anxious to believe that this was indeed his special mission.
Right after the elections, we supported that the US establishment gave a brilliant performance by putting its reserve, Donald Trump, in power, against the only candidate that the same establishment identified as a real threat: Bernie Sanders.
Then, Trump sent the first shock wave to his supporters by literally hiring the Goldman Sachs banksters to run the economy. And right after that, he signed for more deregulation in favor of the Wall Street mafia that ruined the economy in 2008.
In 2017, Trump bombed Syria f…

Mass protests in Haiti, like France’s Yellow Vests, threaten modern oligarchic structure

Throughout recent Latin American history, it is hard to find a country that has been as thoroughly manipulated and plundered by the United States as Haiti has.
After over a century of U.S. intervention — from the 19-year-long U.S. military occupation that began in 1915 to the 2010 election rigged by the Hillary Clinton-run State Department — Haiti has become the ultimate neoliberal experiment that has forced its people to live in conditions so horrible that rivers of sewage often run through the city streets.
Even Haiti’s own president, Jovenel Moise — who has presided over the most recent phase of U.S.-backed plunder — recently called the entire country a “latrine.”
Yet — much as in 1791, when Haiti was the site of the first successful slave revolt in the Americas — today the people of Haiti seem to have finally had enough of being slaves in all but name and are taking to the streets en masse in an effort to end the rule of the Haitian Bald-Headed Party (PHTK), the U.S.-backed politica…

EU parliament drops final leaf, recognizes Washington's puppet Juan Guaido in Venezuela

globinfo freexchange
The European branch of the global neoliberal fascism did what was expected: obey to the orders of the US imperialist empire and recognize Washington's puppet Juan Guaido as the 'legitimate' president of Venezuela.
As Al Jazeera reported:
The European Parliament has recognised Venezuela's self-declared interim president Juan Guaido as de facto head of state, heightening international pressure on the OPEC member's socialist President Nicolas Maduro. EU politicians voted 429 in favour to 104 against, with 88 abstentions, at a special session in Brussels on Thursday to recognise Guaido as interim leader.
Meanwhile, the EU parliament wouldn't even think to 'dare' to challenge the legitimacy of Emmanuel Macron in France, even with all these people protesting in the streets. At the same time, the establishment media try to direct the public attention from the Yellow Vest movement towards the situation in Venezuela.
It doesn't matter that N…
