Farewell to ... weapons by the proxy wars expert, Barack Obama

Obama has lifted the standards of the 'beast' so much that even someone like Donald Trump would have to surpass himself in order to become the worst president in the history of the United States


How many lies can fit in a farewell speech? If you are the US president who won the Nobel price while only in your last year in presidency you have managed to bombard simultaneously seven countries by dropping 48,819 bombs, the answer is ... many lies.

Under the music of U2 in the background, Obama attempted to present a false picture of prosperity and security for the US citizens and the US economy.

He had not mention, of course, that, for the first time in the last 25 years, the life expectancy of the US citizens has been reduced, while the American youth sees its incomes decreasing. For a young American, the only positive indexes under Obama presidency, are the deaths from drugs and the rise of national debt which will transform a whole generation into servants of the bankers. The enlargement of inequalities together with the transformation of a huge part of the population into a kind of servants with low-paid part-time jobs, Obama had indeed several reasons to weep in his farewell speech. However, the tears in his eyes were tears of joy.

The biggest problem for humanity, is that by following the orders of the economic, political and military establishment, the last days Obama attempts to create pre-fixed conditions both for the interior and for the foreign policy of the US superpower. The development of US troops that will be permanently stationed in Poland, for the first time in history, is a clear message of war to Moscow.

This action is taking place between the end of US elections and Trump's inauguration, despite that the decision has been taken a year ago. This shows that the US establishment is not satisfied just by the war climate created by the new US president against China. The establishment wants to keep an open front against Russia too.

During the last week, Obama rushed to broaden the surveillance powers of the NSA. Through the new orders, NSA can share with other 16 agencies huge amounts of data from around the planet. Through this way, the last internal control mechanisms of the intelligence services will disappear, as well as, all discrimination responsibilities. Just think that, it has been revealed in 2014 that the NSA is capable of recording and examining 850 billion files of phone and internet communications. One can easily understand that, one of the biggest "parties" of the intelligence services in the history of humanity, has just started.

Leaving the White House, Obama has created the conditions through which Trump can govern as a totalitarian dictator without the need to pass any new law. Internationally, Obama leaves behind a network of military bases in 138 countries that will allow the US special forces to operate instantly throughout 70% of the planet. Those US enemies that will not be killed by the thousands of drones developed by Obama, could be captured and imprisoned in Guantanamo which remained fully operational, through the CIA kidnapping network.

Inside the US, the police militarization that has been accelerated during Obama terms, as well as, the increase of military operations inside the cities (with the general rehearsal of curfew in Boston), delivers to the next president a Praetorian army, capable to crush any social resistance through a bloodbath. Ten thousand people have been murdered by the police after 2009 and two million people rot in US prisons (the United States under Obama has now more prisoners in absolute numbers, even than China). This is a situation that many of the biggest dictators of 20th and 21th century would want for themselves.

Trump will find difficult to expel more than three million immigrants, like Obama did, breaking every historical record. He will further realize that the wall that has promised to his voters has already been built, either through a natural shape, or through electronic means of border surveillance.

In the economic level, Trump also receives a 'well-plowed' field for the 1% of his richest fellow citizens. When Obama took power, the 400 richest Americans had a combined fortune of 1.57 trillion dollars, while today, they bid farewell to the black president with 2.4 trillion dollars in their pockets.

Some predecessors of Obama, would certainly exhibit worse 'achievements' in specific sectors. However, it is difficult for us to remember someone who has 'triumphed' in so many fields: bombarded so many countries, signed such a high military budgets, executed and tortured through extrajudicial decisions so many people, helped the financial system to enlarge inequality between the rich and the poor to such extent, recorded so many conversations between people, fiercely hunted down the whistleblowers of these actions.

Obama has lifted the standards of the 'beast' so much that even someone like Donald Trump would have to surpass himself in order to become the worst president in the history of the United States.

Former CIA high-ranking official accidentally reveals the type of the false flag operation that the US imperialists will orchestrate to start a war with Iran

globinfo freexchange
In the following video, Jimmy Dore makes an analysis of an interview that the former CIA deputy director, Michael Morell, gave on CBS, regarding the recent developments after the assassination of the Iranian major general, Qasem Soleimani. 
Morell describes a probable scenario according to which the Iranians and their proxies could retaliate further. And therefore, this will naturally and eventually lead the US to start a war with Iran. As Morell points out:
                    Hopefully, that can de-escalate now, but that doesn't mean the covert war is over. [...] There are two things we need to think about here. One is, still, down the road, at some point, an assassination of a senior US official, somewhere in the world, could be months from now, to get revenge. And then, two, we still have to worry about those Iranian proxies. They may still attack US military bases ...

Note, that this interview was taken AFTER the Iranian retaliation through the missile att…

Suppression before uprising: how the system attempts to push societies away from the practice of protesting

globinfo freexchange
Six years ago we wrote that controlled information that reaches the media and reproduced by them, may include the overestimated capability of governments to monitor, for example, an extremely large number of phone conversations. Even if there is such a possibility, such huge amount of data is extremely difficult to be processed. However, the technology is evolving rapidly, and possibly will allow processing of large amount of data in very short time, in the near future. When technology will allow this, people will have already become familiar with the idea that any conversation can be investigated and processed any time.
Today, it seems that not only we reached that point, but the establishment apparatus seeks to 'train' us to accept an elevated form of suppression, through a rapidly growing surveillance technology.

A recent article published in NY Times proves that the establishment apparatus will seek to expand the suppression state in unprecedented leve…

Promoting 'authoritative propaganda': YouTube openly admits it systematically suppresses independent media!

globinfo freexchange

On mid-July we wrote that an increased number of people who run independent YouTube channels reported that are being demonetized. Also, they see the number of viewings and subscribers being reduced significantly.

We observed that while the blog subscribed to various independent YouTube channels, when we go to the first page and search specific terms like "Syria", "Venezuela", "Bernie Sanders", "Tulsi Gabbard", etc., the first results give numerous videos from Western mainstream media like MSNBC, FOX News, CNN, BBC, etc. We can hardly find a video from our subscriptions, way below those results.

We concluded that all signs show that we have to deal with a well-organized operation.

On the one hand, YouTube algorithm directs audiences to the mainstream media propaganda, in an effort to bound them tightly to the establishment narratives. On the other hand, independent YouTube channels will be gradually eliminated due to the sig…

Why the US imperialists will start a war with Iran right after the 2020 US presidential election

by system failure
Even before 2016 US presidential election we were arguing in this blog that Donald Trump is only the reserve of the establishment, a necessity solution. The first signs, right after his election, were indicating that we were right. Trump literally hired Goldman Sachs to run the economy and immediately authorized further tax-cuts for the super-rich, contrary to his pre-election rhetoric.
Then, things got even worse by hiring some of the most bloodthirsty neocons in key positions. Trump's 'anti-establishment' facade was rapidly collapsing as he was  starting to move towards the US deep state agenda. In fact, the only card left to play was that of his alleged 'anti-interventionism'. Yet, he succumbed further to the US pro-war cabal by bombing Syria, without even waiting to see some evidence about Assad's alleged chemical attacks against civilians. 
Beyond that, he continued Obama's awful legacy regarding the war in Yemen, by arming Saudis and…

Bolivia’s free territory of Chapare has ousted the coup regime and is bracing for a bloody re-invasion

Spending time with the union members of Chapare, who run society in a collective fashion, offers special insights into the resistance to the coup. They succeeded in expelling the police, but now fear a bloodbath in retaliation.

by Ollie Vargas
Part 1

Known as Bolivia’s Chapare region, the Tropico of Cochabamba is a sanctuary for elected President Evo Morales’ most dedicated base of support. Since the November 10 coup, it has effectively become a self-governing territory where the military junta is absent.

The police and military were sent in full retreat from this area the coup began and were told they would only be welcomed back if the they “get on their knees and apologize” to the community.

In this 12,000 square kilometer swath of land, hundreds of unions have flourished over the years. I spent several days with the union rank and file, witnessing how they run society in a collective fashion, and how they have organized ferocious resistance to a right-wing coup government that threat…

US-backed parties have infiltrated Lebanon’s protests, pushing the country toward war amid economic collapse

By joining the roadblocks around Beirut, protesters allowed themselves to be used by US-allied parties playing a dangerous game that has the potential to explode into open warfare
by Rania Khalek
Part 4 - Cooperation and integration versus the West’s recipe for fragmentation
The Lebanese economy is facing imminent collapse. Unemployment is spreading, prices are spiking and the street price of the Lebanese lira continues to devalue. There is little that can be done to avoid the collapse, which has been thirty years in the making.

The implosion of the Lebanese economy is spilling over into Syria, which was already teetering on the edge of economic collapse due to eight years of war, government mismanagement and US sanctions designed to collapse the country. Syria was relying on Lebanon as its access point to purchase goods for imports. Now that too is gone. Lebanon’s economic crisis is also affecting Syrian elites who placed their money in Lebanese banks during the war and cannot access i…

Antisemitism claims have one goal: To stop Jeremy Corbyn winning power

The Jewish community’s alienation from Labour has been years in the making - but it is Johnson's Conservatives who have embraced hostility to minorities
Jonathan Cook
Part 11 - One-sided programme
Respondents had been influenced, Philo pointed out, by headlines like “Corbyn’s antisemite army” or descriptions of Labour as “riddled with antisemites”. He also noted the role of the BBC, which is widely trusted, in bolstering the misleading coverage. 
Its recent Panorama programme “Is Labour Anti-Semitic?” presented 17 former Labour staffers attacking the Corbyn-led party. But the programme-makers failed to identify who these critics were. Many were in fact Israel lobbyists – one was even a former employee of the Israeli embassy in London.

While the show included one person replying to the complaints, it entirely excluded the many Jewish voices in Labour that defend Corbyn. Philo observed that both the BBC and Guardian, two media organisations often seen as offering a counterweight to th…

US-backed parties have infiltrated Lebanon’s protests, pushing the country toward war amid economic collapse

By joining the roadblocks around Beirut, protesters allowed themselves to be used by US-allied parties playing a dangerous game that has the potential to explode into open warfare
by Rania Khalek
Part 3 - Fear of Amal, hatred of corrupt leadership, and lack of ideology
In Tyre, protesters tore down Berri’s posters and torched the Tyre Rest House Resort, which they believe is owned by Randa Berri, though Nabih Berri denied it. When I visited Tyre two weeks later, hundreds of new posters of Berri had been erected that read, “the guarantor of Lebanon” and “we are all with you [Berri].”

The posters surrounded the small protest encampment located in a roundabout on the beach road. The protest was part art fair, part concert for families, with liberals and a few leftists filling the ranks. Demonstrators were careful not to name leaders like Berri in their chants and when interviewed, they often spoke in vague terms out of fear of Amal. Later in the night, Amal members provoked the protesters…

While Evo’s MAS party regroups, Bolivia’s coup leaders are eating each other alive

Humiliating scandals are destroying right-wing leader Luis Fernando Camacho and the right is fracturing as a more militant MAS party readies for an uphill election battle.
by Wyatt Reed
Part 2 - From right-wing golden boy to “damaged goods”
Luis Fernando Camacho rose to political prominence months ago, but cemented his status as coup figurehead after he broke into the Palacio Quemado, Bolivia’s presidential palace, with police assistance. In a bizarre act of colonialist kabuki theater, he placed a Bolivian flag and enormous Bible on the floor and declared that God had returned to the Presidential Palace.

Moments later, the pastor by Camacho’s side promised that “Pachamama will never return to the palace,” in a reference to the Andean spirit of Mother Earth.

As the former leader of the undeniably fascistic Union Juvenil Crucenista paramilitary and the separatist Santa Cruz Committee, Camacho has struggled to shake off a history of white supremacy and anti-indigenous violence.

Ex-US intel officer: Pompeo 'lying through his teeth' on Iran

The Grayzone
The Trump administration is imposing new sanctions on Iran and defying Iraq's call for a US troop withdrawal. This comes as the stated rationale for the US assassination of Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis is being undermined by its top officials' own statements. Scott Ritter, a former Marine Corps intelligence officer, analyzes the increased White House coercion efforts and collapsing intelligence claims.
