Donald Trump has just ruined establishment common practices ... through Venezuela

Donald Trump is like a puppet which, from time to time, escapes and makes its own maneuvers, bringing pressure to its masters who run an already deeply discredited, to the eyes of the audiences, show.

by system failure

This may sound strange, but the recent open and direct threat of Donald Trump against Venezuela provides another evidence for the fact that he has been an option of necessity for the US neocon/neoliberal establishment against its favorite, Hillary Clinton.


The establishment usually promotes someone that will come straight from its 'factories', a person that fulfills some minimum standards. Someone who could 'elegantly' spread the US brutality under the noses of the manipulated, always with the help of the mainstream media propaganda, in order to maintain business as usual: complete and global domination of the US banking/corporate neofeudalism.

Someone so 'elegant', that could conduct proxy wars, ruin entire countries, run out of bombs, send drones to kill people around the globe, and yet, be already awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize! Does this remind you of someone?

Trump doesn't know how to be 'elegant'. He is a kind of 'cowboy' who express directly the neoliberal cynicism. His zeal to serve his plutocratic class is so obvious that has already done almost everything that satisfies its interests, contrary to his pre-electional rhetoric. As a consequence, his popularity already reached unprecedented lowest levels.

And if Trump's open threats against North Korea could be considered justifiable by the establishment apparatus, the open threat for military action against Venezuela has probably gone too far, even for the standards of the US deep state. The US most common intervention practice concerning Latin America, is civil wars, or, orchestrated coups. Direct invasion nowadays would be costly in many ways, and quite obvious. It could spark massive resistance, even inside the US by the tired-from-endless-wars American citizens. Barack Obama realized that, and that's why he decided to contact proxy wars against Syria and Libya.

So, we reach now a very interesting point where Trump, probably without realizing it, brings a lot of additional anxiety and embarrassment to the establishment apparatus. Because until now, the US warmongering circus was using its 'elegant' puppet, which was elected according to a carefully designed schedule, for the purpose of being able to conduct bloody wars and interventions, while maintaining a superficial progressiveness.

Barack Obama was a perfect puppet for that purpose, at least during his first term. And - as scheduled - Hillary Clinton would be perfect for that role too, if Bernie Sanders wouldn't have come from nowhere to ruin the original plans, forcing the establishment to turn to Donald Trump, as the choice of last minute.

Donald Trump is like a puppet which, from time to time, escapes and makes its own maneuvers, bringing pressure to its masters who run an already deeply discredited, to the eyes of the audiences, show.

So, one moment he decides to play the game and hire Goldman Sachs to run the country, deregulate Wall Street, and bomb Syria. The establishment apparatus praises him for becoming truly presidential. But then, he refuses to condemn directly the racist violence that caused the death of a woman recently in Charlottesville, forcing the White House to run behind him to fix things. After a lot of - we imagine - pressure, finally, Donald Trump was dragged to condemn racism, on the context of this horrible incident. And in the meantime, he expresses an exaggerating zeal to go after Venezuela and Nicolas Maduro, with a direct threat of invasion.

The embarrassment of the establishment concerning Venezuela was emphatic. The various mouthpieces didn't know what to do. Yes, they want Venezuela for the US big oil cartel, but Trump's statement was too sloppy. The mouthpieces couldn't condemn it - as their propaganda has painted Maduro as a 'dictator' - neither approve it. In fact, Trump didn't use the phrase 'military option' even against North Korea.

As things were going out of control, even Mike Pence was 'recruited' to restore previous status quo. It seems that the US Vice President has appeared with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in an attempt to calm the outrage that followed Donald Trump's surprising threat to use military force against neighboring Venezuela. As the TeleSur reported, "Santos, who's courted Washington's stance toward Venezuela, put on the brakes after Trump's threat of military intervention in a Latin American country. During the press appearance with Pence he said, 'We must do everything possible so that democracy is re-established in Venezuela.' However, he confessed, 'but as friends, we must tell each other the truth and I told Vice President Pence that the possibility of military intervention must not be contemplated.'

The elites see Trump as a necessity that terrifies them every time he opens his mouth to unleash another straight threat. For these snobbish plutocrats, who know very well how to screw the majority, Trump is the 'dirty cowboy' who hate, yet need at this moment. He is the expendable who came for four years to do the job for the elites and leave. It doesn't matter if his popularity eventually reach zero levels.

Yet, the anxiety of Donald Trump to satisfy his plutocratic class depicts establishment's anxiety to retain the neoliberal status quo. And as the mainstream media propaganda becomes increasingly ineffective, it seems that, the establishment representatives are not only running out of time. They are also running out of tricks and options ...

How CIA altered the ending of Orwell's 'Animal Farm' to project Communism as the sole tyrannic system

globinfo freexchange

This interesting short documentary by AJ+, explores the cultural war between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. In an effort to project Communism as the evil against capitalist West and the "free world", CIA had to covertly interfere through various ways in art, music, literature, philosophy.

In one of these cases, the documentary reveals how CIA altered the ending of Orwell's 'Animal Farm' to project Communism as the sole tyrannic system. It is also interesting the fact that the case involved an animated film, indicating that CIA's cultural propaganda was targeting minor Americans in order to "train" them ideologically.

According to the story, George Orwell, who wrote such middle-school classics as 1984 and Animal Farm, described himself as a Democratic Socialist. And he was actually pretty anti-Stalinist and anti-Soviet-style socialism, something which was unusual among Leftist circles at the time.

We already live in a permanent recession in which the Wall Street mafia secretly and continuously is being bailed out with billions by the Fed!

Jimmy Dore and Dylan Ratigan explain in this video the secret mechanism through which the Fed is permanently bailing out the Wall Street mafia with billions. 
Dore refers to a September article by CNN Business with information that, under normal circumstances, should have made big headlines, generating massive anger.
We were trained not to be surprised by the liquidity injections that the central banks like the Fed and ECB provide to the biggest financial institutions. When at the same time, the real economy, and especially the small-medium business sector is literally struggling to survive in the capitalist West.
Yet, in this case, some additional information reveals something impressive. As Dore highlights from the article: 
                  Until this week, the Fed hadn't launched an operation like this since 2008. [...] Still, the fact the Fed needed to pump $128 billion into the system on successive days shows that a crack has emerged in a seldom-discusse…

The global youth radicalization and the fight for Socialism

by Eric London
Across the world, in countries as culturally distinct as Ecuador, Lebanon, France, Germany, the US, Iraq, Chile and Haiti, a new generation of working class youth is making its powerful entrance onto the battlefield of the global class struggle.

Citing the international scope of recent mass demonstrations, the Guardian's Simon Tisdall recently wrote: “Each country’s protests differ in detail, but recent upheavals do appear to share one key factor: youth ... This global phenomenon of unfulfilled youthful aspirations is producing political time bombs. Each month in India, one million people turn 18 and can register to vote. In the Middle East and North Africa, an estimated 27 million youngsters will enter the workforce in the next five years.

The political awakening of the most educated, urbanized and technologically interconnected generation in history is of critical strategic significance for the entire working class. 
Born beginning in the 1990s, today's youth…

Το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς βάζει σε εφαρμογή το σχέδιο για τη δημιουργία κράτους σκληρής καταστολής

globinfo freexchange

Μετά το πρώτο βήμα που έκανε το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς για τη δημιουργία Ειδικών Οικονομικών Ζωνών εντός της Ελληνικής επικράτειας, δηλαδή για τα φέουδα του 21ου αιώνα, όπως είχαμε προβλέψει, φαίνεται ότι, δυστυχώς, αρχίζει να επαληθεύεται και το σχέδιο για την ανασύσταση του δεξιού παρακράτους.  
Ήδη από το Μάιο του 18, είχαμε επισημάνει ότι σε ομιλία του στη βουλή, ο Μητσοτάκης ξεκίνησε το παραλήρημα του περί βίας αναφερόμενος συγκεκριμένα στα 'Εξάρχεια', τους 'Ρουβίκωνες' και τους 'αγανακτισμένους'. Και στο σημείο αυτό, πάλι κάτι ξέχασε: τους φασίστες.
Έτσι, έστειλε σήμα στους μηχανισμούς του αστικού καθεστώτος ότι θα συνεχίζει να το προστατεύει εγκαθιστώντας ένα κράτος σκληρής καταστολής, χωρίς να πειράξει το ακροδεξιό βαθύ κράτος που επιστρατεύει η εγχώρια ολιγαρχία όταν αισθάνεται κίνδυνο. Ένας κίνδυνος που μπορεί να έρθει σε περίπτωση νέων αναταραχών από τις βάναυσες πολιτικές λιτότητας που ο Μητσοτάκης θα συνεχίσει να εφαρμόζει π…

It's now or never: the first step for a Sanders/Corbyn synchronization in power must be done on 12 December in UK

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the global working class
by system failure
Two years ago, we wondered whether a US government under Bernie Sanders, together with a UK government under Jeremy Corbyn, could mark a decisive victory against neoliberalism. Whether it could mark the beginning of the end of the Reagan/Thatcher awful legacy.

It seems that the time has come for the first step towards this prospect.

The oncoming UK general election on Thursday 12 December 2019, will be the most critical for decades, especially for the global working class. The outcome will determine to a significant degree, whether the capitalist West will change course away from the destructive neoliberalism, towards a form of Democratic Socialism. A new model that will resurrect the social state, while at the same time, will seriously deal with the great environmental challenges, defying big interests and rejecting the for-profit-wars model.

Trump threatens to transfer the endo-capitalist war into a civil war level

globinfo freexchange
Donald Trump finally counter-attacked against corporate Democrats and their persistent desire to impeach him, through the ultimate threat: a civil war. In a recent tweet he wrote:
"... If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.
....If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
Speaking to the Real News Network, Jeet Heer of The Nation pointed out:
The civil-war tweet is almost like a threat. It’s like, 'Well, this is a nice little Republic you got here, and it’d be a shame if anything happened to it.' But the thing is that this civil-war talk did not originate from T…

Under digital surveillance: how American schools spy on millions of kids

Fueled by fears of school shootings, the market has grown rapidly for technologies that monitor students through official school emails and chats
by Lois Beckett

Part 5 - Shifts in culture

School officials say that their primary motivation for using surveillance technology is the chance to save a student’s life. But schools are monitoring students’ digital documents in real time for a wide range of content they see as problematic, from swear words to nude images and pornography to cyberbullying to evidence of drug and alcohol use.

In Weld county, Colorado, a student emailed a teacher that she heard two boys were going to smoke weed in a bathroom, Hernandez, the student services and safety director, said. Gaggle immediately alerted school officials: “Within four minutes of her sending this email, the troops had deployed,” she said.
Gaggle also automatically sends students a scolding email any time they use a profanity.

A few school districts have chosen not to send students Gaggle’s war…

Julian Assange's extradition process is 'a charade'

Filmmaker John Pilger attended Julian Assange's last court hearing and observed not only that Assange is visibly suffering from prison mistreatment, but his defense is not being given a fair chance to make its case against his extradition to the US.


Bernie and AOC demonstrate how Baby Boomers could help Millennials escape the neoliberal Matrix

globinfo freexchange
In a recent ad, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explains why she endorsed Bernie Sanders for President. Yet, it would be interesting to examine a specific point she makes at the beginning of this short video. AOC says:
                    The first time I ever heard about Bernie Sanders was when I was a waitress in a greasy spoon diner type of restaurant in downtown Manhattan. And I had been working 12 hour days. I didn't have health insurance. I was being paid less than a living wage. And I didn't think that I deserved any of those things, I thought that that's just how life was.

Her last (highlighted) phrase tells you a lot of how deeply the neoliberal perception has penetrated inside societies and especially inside the minds of new generations. Entire generationshave been trained to believe that that's how things are, in order to accept the neoliberal order and retire from any attempt to overthrow it.
As we wrote in a previous article, during the last f…
