While Our country Falls Deeper Into Fascism…and this was all they could think to do?

In my Opinion.……

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today, the House of Representatives voted to declare a genocide occurred about 100 years ago.

The Democratic-controlled House voted 405-11 in favor of a resolution asserting that it is U.S. policy to commemorate as genocide the killing of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923. The Ottoman Empire was centered in present-day Turkey.

The vote marked the first time in 35 years that such legislation was considered in the full House, underscoring widespread frustration in Congress with the Turkish government, from both Democrats and President Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans.”

Yes! By all means! Let’s poke another country with a big stick because they won’t do our bidding. What is it they have that some big corporation wants?  Oil? Gold?  What?   Apparently the stage is being set for another war of aggression and this is the first prodding to incite that war.  I am sure there will be a profuse amount of propaganda to follow this vote.  Let me see. It goes something like this: 

Their leader is a brutal dictator and we have to go and bring democracy to them. 

He gassed his own people!  Not that one?  Ok….how about …

They have weapons of mass destruction!

Yeah! That one should do it.

Of course no one in DC will be going to war, nor their children nor any of their friends. No.  Wars are to be fought by us commoners.  And if our soldiers make it back home we will treat them like crap and act like nothing happened.  And a whole bunch of people in a foreign country who have done nothing to us will be burying their dead and putting out fires.

Of all the pointless, useless, wasting of time this has to be near the top of the list. Maybe next we could commemorate the genocide of the Iraqi people in our war of aggression after 9/11. A country that had no part in those attacks. Last count I heard was 1.5 million dead and the birth deformities from our use of depleted uranium and other deadly crap has ratcheted that number up. Yes! Let’s do!

Oh! Oh! I know! Let’s commemorate the genocide of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation!! We don’t even have a head count on that one, but of course they’re still busy trying to wipe them out. We’ll just save that one for one of those days when there isn’t much to do in congress. You know, its not like things are going to hell here or anything.

While these elected fools waste precious time, the homelessness in this country is growing by the day.

The jobs promised to return as a result of those massive tax breaks for corporations have not materialized.

60% of college graduates cannot find work in the field they trained for because those jobs are being filled by foreign workers brought into the country under special work visa’s.

The opioid crisis is killing about 17,000 a month.

California is being intentionally set ablaze under the guise of training just before 80 mph winds are expected. (Gosh…wonder how that will turn out?)

The liquidity crisis on Wall Street that has resulted in the Fed offering $690 billion a week to 23 Wall Street securities firms and one foreign bank as well as a newly launched “don’t call it QE4” operation by the Fed to buy up $60 billion a month in Treasury bills from Wall Street dealers.

Thats 690 billion per WEEK of money borrowed in the name of taxpayers because although banks are “too big to fail”, we, the people, are expendable.

Our police departments have been militarized and many have become a threat to their communities, executing people at will and walking away free.

These and many more issues,too many to recount here, and all congress could think to do , all they felt was of national importance, was to declare that a genocide had occurred in a foreign country about 100 years ago just to piss off the government that is there now 100 years later.

Thank you congress! While we wonder if we will have a job next week, or how we are going to pay our rent, buy groceries or pay these extortion rates for crappy health insurance, thank you for wasting all of your time making this commemoration. Is it nap time now?

And while all this goes on the president spent his time tweeting out his usual brand of nonsense.

 

 

Who Benefits From Turkey’s Coup?

     There are a several intertwining theories about the failed coup in Turkey. President Erdogan and his rival Gulen blame each other, while the US is deeply enmeshed in the plot, and the US mainstream media is implicated in perpetuating propaganda.
     There are some strange anomalies surrounding coup- it seems odd that unarmed citizens would confront heavily armed military rebel forces and were able to stop them. And, rebel pilots flying F-16s did not shoot when they had the chance to fire upon Erdogan’s plane.
     David Knight, an investigative reporter for Infowars, and Mark Hall, producer of the film Killing Ed, present a case against Muhammed Fethullah Gulen. Gulen a Turkish imam, was brought into the US by the CIA.  He receives upwards of half a billion dollars a year in taxpayer funds to support his private charter school system that is used to promote Islam and indoctrinate children and young students in the US. Hall says that some of the money is sent back to Turkey to fund the Gulen movement in what he calls an “education jihad.”
   The $500 million per year in US pubic funds is raised from property taxes. Gulen has over 130 schools in 26 states. Texas has 45 Gulen schools that will get more than $200 million in taxpayer funds out of the $500 million, and, in addition, the Gulen movement in Texas has raised $300 million more in bond funds over the past 5 years.

Dr. Manouchehr Ganji to PM Erdogan: Come Clean on the $18.5 Billion U. S. transferred to Turkey from Iran

shirinneshatsarbazan01In the Name of My Father:

Dr. Manouchehr Ganji’s letter of July 31st to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, chronicles a most interesting event on the Iran/Turkish border, involving the Turkish customs authorities.

It seems that on October 7th, 2008, trucks containing $18.5 billion dollars/U. S., in one hundred dollar bills and 20 tons of gold, were delivered to the Ankara Customs Office.  The largesse was in transit from Iran through Turkey to a destination yet publicly unknown. 

Turkish independent television station Kanal D quotes Turkish lawyer Senol Ozel as stating that the $18.5 billion is legally owned by an Iranian named Esmael Saffarian-Nessab. Ozel describes his client as a “respected Iranian businessman [who] has transferred the money to Turkey through legal means.” 

Obvious questions abound.  Who really is Esmael Saffarian-Nessab?  Who is he working for?  Whose money is really being transited out of Iran?  For what final destination?  And what do Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan and Turkish attorney Senol Ozel really know about all of this?  How many players are there, really, in the transfer of $18 billion U. S. across the Iranian-Turkish border?
