Gullible Americans Easiest Sheep Ever to Be Shorn

Paul Craig Roberts

Hawaii Political Info introduction: Worse yet, they have no conscience.

by Paul Craig Roberts

August 17, 2015

“Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.” — Mark Twain

Listening to NPR news today I was reminded how throughly this once independent voice has sold out.

I was also reminded of the Mark Twain quote above. NPR reported that Syrians were lined up in Turkey waiting on passage on inflatable rafts to Greece. According to the NPR report, there are 2 million Syrian refugees in Turkey and 250,000 Syrians have been killed. NPR said nothing about the cause of this murder and displacement of vast numbers of people. It was if the plight of these people materialized out of thin air. The fact that Washington sicced ISIS, al Qaeda, Turkey, the US and NATO Air Forces, and Washington’s Middle Eastern vassals on Syria was not mentioned. The view on NPR is the same as Washington’s — that if only Assad would resign and hand Syria over to Washington, everything would be fine.

Americans don’t go to bed every night unable to sleep from shame from the atrocities that the US government has inflicted on Syria. And on Iraq. And Libya. And Afghanistan. And Pakistan. And Yemen. And Somalia. And Ukraine. And Serbia. According to the prostitute media, all of these human catastrophes are the work of dark forces that America must combat. It is all a clever orchestration of public emotion in favor of the military/security complex’s bank balance.

The corruption of public discourse in America, indeed throughout the West, is total. There are no reliable reports, not from public or private institutions. The economic reports are propaganda to keep alive the image of a successful America. The reports about Russia, Ukraine, and Muslims are propaganda designed to inculcate fear in the gullible, fear that ensures more power and profit for Washington and the military/security complex.

Americans have proven themselves to be the easiest sheep ever to be shorn.

The gullibility of Americans threatens the world with Armageddon.

U.S. Rep. Takai Joined Freshmen Colleagues on Free Propaganda Trip to Israel

August 3, 2015

The American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF), the educational wing of hardline right-wing pro-Israel lobbying organization the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), is taking all but three freshmen US House Representatives on a tour of Israel, in hopes of turning them against the Iran nuclear deal.

Over 50 US congresspeople will meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu in Israel in August.

Two separate trips are being organized along partisan lines—one for Democrats, and another for Republicans.

The Teflon Poison, DuPont and the Art of Corporate Deception

The Intercept

by Sharon Lerner

August 11, 2015

KEN WAMSLEY SOMETIMES DREAMS that he’s playing softball again. He’ll be at center field, just like when he played slow pitch back in his teens, or pounding the ball over the fence as the crowd goes wild. Other times, he’s somehow inexplicably back at work in the lab. Wamsley calls them nightmares, these stories that play out in his sleep, but really the only scary part is the end, when “I wake up and I have no rectum anymore.”

Wamsley is 73. After developing rectal cancer and having surgery to treat it in 2002, he walks slowly and gets up from the bench in his small backyard slowly. His voice, which has a gentle Appalachian lilt, is still animated, though, especially when he talks about his happier days. There were many. While Wamsley knew plenty of people in Parkersburg, West Virginia, who struggled to stay employed, he made an enviable wage for almost four decades at the DuPont plant here. The company was generous, helping him pay for college courses and training him to become a lab analyst in the Teflon division.

He enjoyed the work, particularly the precision and care it required. For years, he measured levels of a chemical called C8 in various products. The chemical “was everywhere,” as Wamsley remembers it, bubbling out of the glass flasks he used to transport it, wafting into a smelly vapor that formed when he heated it. A fine powder, possibly C8, dusted the laboratory drawers and floated in the hazy lab air.

River Pollution Disaster in Colorado Was Predicted 6 Days in Advance by Geologist

Animas River, Colorado, Before & After EPA Pollution


April 12, 2015

The environmental disaster the EPA caused at the Gold King mine in Colorado was predicted 6 days in advance:

This letter to editor, posted below, was published in the Silverton Standard & the Miner local newspaper, authored by a retired geologist, one week before EPA mine spill. The letter detailed verbatim, how EPA officials would foul up the Animas River on purpose in order to secure superfund money. If the Gold King mine was declared a superfund site it would essentially kill future development for the mining industry. The Obama EPA is vehemently opposed to mining and development.

The EPA says it was “very careful” as it caused the catastrophe. In contrast to its free market victims, it will face no fines for the environmental damage it brought about. At least the experts say the arsenic, lead, et cetera likely won’t affect the water supply here in Phoenix, despite the bright orange toxic sludge heading straight for Lake Powell; from there it will enter the Colorado River, which keeps Phoenix alive.

I thought at least this time the devastation wrought by this pernicious agency was accidental, unlike the economic damage it inflicts. Maybe not.

Presidential Candidates Trump, Bush and Rubio All Beholden to Jews and Israel

Hawaii Political Info introduction: Brother Nathanael shows that major presidential candidates Trump, Bush and Rubio are owned lock, stock and barrel by Jewish interests. The question is, is there anyone of the nearly 20 major presidential candidates, Republicans or Democrats, who is free of Jewish masters and will actually put American interests, such as no wars for Israel, first? It doesn't look good . . .

Real Jew News

By Brother Nathanael Kapner

Brother Nathanael grew up in the U.S. as a Jew and converted to Christianity as a young man. He is now a member of the Russian Orthodox Church and lives in Colorado.

IF THERE’S TO BE LEADERSHIP in this country, only one candidate has a clue about putting things right again…if that’s even possible.

When grilled by Megyn Kelly about his purported “war on women,” Trump aptly answered, “I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct.”

Kudos Donald! Hopefully, you’ll move far afield of political-correctness when it comes to the overweening power Jews wield in America.

But with your real estate investments in Israel, expanding your Trump Empire into Jewish geographics, many of your followers may be in for a really big letdown.

I mean, after all, Trump wasn’t Grand Marshall at New York’s annual Salute to Israel Parade for nothing.

Donald is reaching out…for Jewish support. No way he’s going to disappoint the Jews.
