Today we are seeing once again the heavy hand of the war profiteers trying to reshape the film industry into a tool to propagandize the public into a high war-fever such that they will gladly trade their own blood for gold to line the pockets of the defense establishment. And those individuals who have the courage to speak out are attacked, and once again they are smeared to silence them. In the 1940s it was "Communist", today it is "Anti-Semite", but aside from the particular label used, the methods, goals, and morality are little changed from the days of Joseph McCarthy.
As far as the most important matter is concerned, there is complete unanimity. Liberman, Netanyahu, Barak, Ellie Yishai of Shas and Danny Hershkovitz of the “Jewish Home” party are in total agreement about the Palestinians. All of them agree on the need to prevent the establishment of a real Palestinian state. All of them agree not to talk with Hamas. All of them support the settlement enterprise. During Barak’s stint as Prime Minister, the settlements grew even faster than during Netanyahu’s tenure. Liberman is himself a settler, Hershkovitz’s party represents the settlers. All of them believe that there is no need for peace, that peace is bad for us.
Ezra Pound was right, jailed & locked away
for broadcasting truth from Italy during WWII.
The Republicans were & still are waiters to the Bankers.
Rapallo was certainly better than hell of confinement
in perpetual Nat’l Security State.
The financier’s of Hitler’s genocide machine
Henry Ford, & Prescott Bush, were never hanged or tried
at Nuremburg for war crimes.
60 years later, Nat’l Security State continues in 2009.
Endless war for peace is lunacy, totalitarian scheme of
global control conglomerate.
Both Republicans & Democrats, are now waiters to the bankers.

With almost no public attention, both chambers of Congress in the past week advanced an alarming expansion of the Americorps national service plan, with the number of federally funded community-service jobs increasing from 75,000 to 250,000 at a cost of $5.7 billion. Lurking behind the feel-good rhetoric spouted by the measure’s advocates is a bill that upon closer inspection reveals multiple provisions that together create a strong odor of creepy authoritarianism.
On this, the anniversary of the famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech given by Patrick Henry, Jesse Richard, the founder of TvNewsLIES.org, sets the record straight on patriotism.
Do you think that supporting your government is patriotic? Do you think that descent is the highest form of patriotism? Do you think that given the choice between losing your liberty and losing your life you should give up your life, willingly? Do you really believe that your only choices when it comes to protecting your liberty are to live free, or to die? Think again...on all counts!
Take a few minutes and listen to this refresher course on what liberty and patriotism really are.
So it's time to admit it: We're fools, protagonists in a kind of gruesome comedy about the marriage of greed and stupidity. And the worst part about it is that we're still in denial — we still think this is some kind of unfortunate accident, not something that was created by the group of psychopaths on Wall Street whom we allowed to gang-rape the American Dream.
In early 1919, Germany put in place a new government to begin rebuilding the country after its crushing defeat in World War I. But the right-wing forces that had led the country into the War and lost the War conspired even before it was over to destroy the new government, the "Weimar Republic." They succeeded.
The U.S. faces a similar "Weimar Moment." The devastating collapse of the economy after eight years of Republican rule has left the leadership, policies, and ideology of the right utterly discredited. But, as was the case with Germany in 1919, Republicans do not intend to allow the new government to succeed. They will do everything they can to undermine it. If they are successful, the U.S. may yet go the way of Weimar Germany.
