Brazil


10/8/18

Brazil becomes the next domino to fall to the worldwide march into fascism
as a very profitable (for the rich) world war looms menacingly on the horizon.

Bolsonaro (Brazil's "Trump") wins primary and is favored to get elected president

Britain


5/31/16

Brexit: on 6/23/16 Britain will vote on ...

whether to remain in the European Union or leave it

If the E.U. leaders could be held accountable to the people,
I would support Britain's participation in the Union.
But as it has been designed, there is no way I can support (for any country)
a non-democratic organization exercising governmental authority.

For those of you who would like a primer on British politics

Canada


11/5/15

Canada shows America how secular governments are supposed to run:

Half of the new cabinet members in Canada
avoid mentioning God in their oaths


If that happened in America,
by next week most of them would be recalled, impeached, or ...

shot

China to Kill Term Limits for Xi Jinping



Fascism and Dictatorships continue to rise unabated, worldwide, in a replay of the 1930's ...

and we all know how well that turned out

Trump said he would shrink the trade deficit with China.
So, after a year in office, how's he doing?

The deficit just hit a record high

Nothing new to see here folks ... move along.

Remember all those Conservatives who bragged about
how economically superior our Capitalism was to Communism?

Well, they ain't braggin' now

Actually, America is as much Socialist as it is Capitalist. We are a hybrid economy.
And with 4 times the population, it's about time China took its place at the top.

China and India owe a lot of their success to the greed of American Oligarchs
who use their cheap labor and tax evasion advantages to enrich themselves
at the expense of dumbass Americans who keep reelecting Oligarchic pimps.

10/24/17

As I have been warning for quite some time now,
all over the world Fascism continues to rear its ugly head
as Oligarchs prep the ignorant masses for war ...

Now you can add China to the list

This would not be happening if war wasn't incredibly lucrative ... for them.

12/16/15

Hypocrisy is an interesting word.
It applies when someone criticizes someone else
for doing something that they themselves are guilty of having done.
(self-contradiction)

The U.S. arms Taiwan (an island just off the coast of China)

Remember how America responded to Russia
when Russia tried to arm an island sitting right off the coast of America?

Our superior military might forced Russia to back down in 1962.
But our superior military strength now allows us to do
the exact same thing to China that Russia tried to do to us.

H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y

This is not about "right vs. wrong"
This is about "might makes right"

And if humans don't switch from the latter to the former,
we won't be around long enough to worry about the Sun
when it begins to expand and threatens the Earth.

All of Earth's creatures will be ... on their own

Thousands of dead fish wash up near a chemical blast site in China

From the article:
"there's plenty of public anger
at how the well-connected owners of the hazardous-chemicals warehouse
were able to flout regulations,
reports the AP, which went through public documents
to discover that the majority owner of Ruihai International Logistics
sits on the board of directors of a company controlled by the State Council,
which is investigating the disaster.
(The warehouse was holding 70 times more sodium cyanide than it was allowed to)
"

Reading about the connections of the owners to politicians,
combined with their illegal activities,
shows that "The Powerful Predators" are the same ...

no matter where on Earth you go

India


1/8/18

In 2012, Sanal Edamaruku was charged by Catholics with blasphemy
for exposing their "weeping statue of Christ" as nothing more than a fraud,
rigged up with hidden plumbing.

So who did the government charge? The Catholics?

No. Sanal had to move to Finland to evade arrest for "hurting religious feelings."
He has been living in exile and was unable to return for his mother's funeral.

So India, in an attempt to prove how consistent they are in defending the rights of criminals,
filed a criminal complaint which included the reporter who exposed the data breach
that publicized (for sale) the personal information ...

of more than a BILLION Indians

WTF India?

Iran


10/3/18

After the U.N. ruled against the U.S. over Iran
the Trump administration responded by terminating a 1955 treaty with Iran.

Under Trump, "The Rule of Law" has become a joke (starting with the Emoluments Clause).
Now, whenever things don't go our way, we take our toys and go away, using the excuse ...

National Sovereignty!

But when you hear the excuse "In the interests of national security" ...
that's when you know that people are going to get hurt.

Libya


10/5/12

Who are the ones most to blame for the tragedy in Benghazi?

The ones who have been screaming the loudest and pointing fingers at others

Here is the money quote from the article:

"But it's a bit rich to complain about a lack of US security personnel
at diplomatic missions on the one hand,
while actively working to cut the budget
to pay for US security personnel at diplomatic missions on the other.
 "

It's not just a bit rich - it is intentionally dishonest.
It is exactly what little kids do after they've been caught ...

with their hand in the cookie jar

Pakistan


9/18/17

The Panama Papers brought down several government leaders.
But some, like Putin, were too powerful to be affected.
Within weeks, the story of the century
was quashed by Oligarchs and the media went silent.
In Pakistan, The Panama Papers exposed the corruption of Prime Minister Sharif.
The Supreme Court found him guilty and removed him from office.
How did the Oligarchs fight back?

His wife ran and won his old office ...

which means he is back in power and free to plunder the country once again

Remember, these are Muslims. They don't think women should be educated or even allowed to drive.
Yet when power and control is at stake, look how quickly they ditch their religious beliefs.
Maybe now you'll be able to understand why American Evangelicals rallied behind Trump.
Whether Christian or Muslim, Conservatives will ditch their phony religious bullshit in a heartbeat
if they think it will get them control over the resources.

Until the masses develop the rational thinking skills necessary to defend themselves,
they will continue to be controlled by the Oligarchs.

Poland


7/20/17

Democracy in Poland is in serious trouble
as the government brings its Supreme Court ...

under its direct control

Fascism is rising all over the world as Democracy takes hit after hit.
The people have the power, but not the know-how, to stop it.

The same thing has been happening in the U.S.
The Plutocracy blocked a record number of judicial appointments
during Obama's presidency (more than all the previous 43 presidents combined)
and are now appointing ultra-conservative, ultra-young judges at a record-setting rate.

UPDATE

European Union may sanction Poland

(that is - if they can pressure Hungary to quit supporting "Democracide")

UPDATE

President Duda vetoes judicial takeover

2017

We've all heard the phrase "playing the Hitler card."
It is used when a person tries to make a comparison,
between someone they don't like ... and Adolf Hitler;
That's because Hitler is the epitome of evil.
He is the standard, against whom, all others are judged.
Here is someone who deserves the comparison ...

Vladimir Putin

The Russian-Georgian War

Georgia under Russian occupation

The Russian-Ukraine War: Crimea annexed (stolen)

Lots of people are dying because of this maniacal thieving bastard (google: Panama Papers).
But if he isn't stopped soon, that may be just a drop in the bucket.
Here is another arch villain that compares similarly to Putin ...

Joseph Stalin

Probably the best "pledge of allegiance" on the planet ...

regardless of race, language, or religion,
to build a democratic society based on justice and equality
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation.

Turkey


4/18/18

Erdogan, like so many other recent world leaders,
is consolidating power and driving another nail in the coffin of Democracy.



One thing that always gives fascists away,
is that you never see them with just one flag;
they are always awash  in flags.

UPDATE 6/24/18

Dictatorship proceeding ... according to plan

U.S. Military


7/20/17

The U.S. Military-Industrial Complex spends almost as much on militarization
as the next 9 biggest spenders ... COMBINED!

Over 1/3 of the world's spending on warfare comes from Christian America.
Maybe that's why Jesus's country is the only one in the world that is always in a state of war?

After all, what's the point in spending all that money
if you're not going to use it to kill people and take their stuff?



Here is the breakdown of the spending

Here is a list of wars  involving the most Christian nation on Earth.
You know, the nation that has the 10 Commandments posted everywhere
containing the commandment ... "Thou Shalt Not Kill."

Jesus must be so proud.

What would happen to any American president who tried to stop them?

Here are the words that I predict you would hear:
"In the interests of national security,
we have been forced to remove this president from power.
"

3/28/17

Fascism continues to sprout around the world (including in the U.S.).
With sabers rattling and threats abounding,
does the world show any sign of becoming an advanced intelligent civilization?



The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty was designed
so that the nuclear nations could maintain their advantage.
They show no willingness to give up that advantage.
There is only one way this can end.
Either we find a way to stop the insanity ...

or the inevitable will do it for us

Conservatives try to blame Venezuela's problems on Socialism.
Here's what's really goin' on ...



Wherever people are dying in large numbers and being stripped of their wealth,
you can be sure that you will find a group of oil tycoons playing poker in a nearby hotel.

And here is a stunning take-down of ...
