Dictators Inc.





The US despises any world leader they can’t control.  When a country displeases the US the first word they apply to the leader of said country is that of “dictator” to express evil incarnate. In some instances it can be. But not always.  Take the former Colonel Gaddafi of Libya. He was a dictator.  But he was also a socialist.  In the years before Gaddafi was disposed in a coup by a US led uprising, and his country destroyed by US led NATO bombing in 1986, he had decided to open Libya to foreign investment.  That went down well with the US.  Access to Libyan oil was a sweetener like no other.  Gaddafi went from being a vicious dictator who supported “terrorist” causes while murdering and oppressing his own people, to being considered a gentleman and true friend of the US.  But even when they were best friends with Libya the US didn’t speak of the real internal policies of Gaddafi’s government. 

 

Who in the West knew that under Gadhafi Libya was a secular, progressive state, the most progressive in Africa at the time?  That the Libyan people enjoyed free education, even post-secondary, and free medical care? Who knew that Libyans under Kaddafi had free electricity and dirt cheap gasoline? That mothers of newborns were given bursaries for $5,000 US? Almost nobody.   All we knew was that the US somehow made an about face, and far from being a friend of the US, Gaddafi went back to being a vicious dictator and terrorist.  He was accused of being behind multinational bombings that was never proven, the truth or falsity of them may never be satisfied.  But in some opinions, the main reason for the sacking of Libya and the murder of Kaddafi was because Gadhafi threatened the US national and international banking systems.  How did he do this?

 

By trying to introduce a single African currency, the African gold dinar.  We’re talking gold here, not fiat currency that we all know and love (or hate).  This would have allowed Africans to charge whatever they decided was a fair price for their precious resources and rise out of poverty. However, our very own dictators (the global western international bankers) decided this was a red line. “It has been said that the gold Dinar was the real reason for the NATO (read US) led rebellion, in a bid to oust the outspoken leader” (Global Research News, May 2014).


Go figure. Of course.  This is the same reason why the US and international banking systems loathe Russia and fear China to the point of hysteria.  It’s the new banking systems China is setting up with Russia and the other BRICK countries. China is having success in getting other countries to accept the Chinese yuan. It’s all about who controls the currencies.  That’s the reason for all the hate propaganda against Russia and China.  This is why we are told Putin is a dangerous, demented madman, a vicious dictator who eats babies (metaphorically speaking) and presents China as a kind of enormous sly, fat evil Buddha, waiting for his chance to swallow up the entire world.  Maybe things will get better when at least some of the most rabid neo-con war mongers straining at the bit for war with Russia in the Obama cabinet and present Republican congress fade into the woodwork.  Will Trump be any better?  That is, if he is actually inaugurated?  Time will tell.  But the poet Omar Khayyam cautions: “The moving finger writes and having writ, moves on…”

In the Land of the Assassins



Assassinations are always political. I was raised in Louisiana.  Huey P. Long, who had served as governor of Louisiana and then was elected senator of the state was assassinated in 1935 .I was seven years old.  Traumatized by this event, I became extremely nervous.  My mother started dosing me with an oral product called Liberty Tonic that my father sold from his car along with other items. No telling what was in this concoction, but the taste was so ghastly I tried hard not to have the nightmares that were plaguing me. These nightmares were accompanied by involuntary cries and whimpering that would bring my mother and another dose of the dreaded tonic.  I would insist that I was fine, but my mother knew I wasn’t. So did I. How could anybody be fine when the Armageddon was at hand? I knew this because of the way all of the adults in my world were acting following Huey P. Long’s assassination.  Especially my father.


The country was trying to come out of the Great Depression. We were cash poor but never hungry as we grew and raised most of what we ate.  The money my father made from his business helped. Others weren’t so lucky. The rich oil wells and refining capacities of the state were owned by Standard Oil.  Little of the oil money slipped outside of the coffers of the company owners and corrupt government officials.  Until Huey P. Long became governor in 1928. Then things started perking up.  Long taxed the big oil money and started building new roads.   He instituted new health care programs and best of all, new schools for both black and white kids.  Everybody I knew loved Huey P. Long. He was a man of the people, for all the people. I thought he must be like Jesus. When Long was assassinated my father withdrew. I had never seen him cry before. To me, that signified the end of the world.  Later I realized that assassinations kill more than the duly elected politician. They can also kill the hopes and dreams of ordinary people and plunge the nation (state, province) into despair.  In recent times the American people have become so used to political assassinations’ we hardly notice anymore, or remember …Malcom X, President Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martian Luther King, and the ongoing almost daily assassinations of African Americans by US police.  Obama’s drone program and kill lists are the perfect assassination tools for modern times.


The shrill US demands for Trump’s blood are growing louder.  Trump is the opposite of my hero, Huey P. Long in most ways, but he will be the duly elected president. If the combined interests of the White House, CIA, FBI, Homeland Security and the banking cabals can’t get Trump through the media, I worry  they are planning to bring him down in other ways. The three options they have are (a) to figure out a way to impeach Trump as soon as he takes office, (b) start a war with Russia that Trump would have to continue, (c) or kill him. Any of these three options will bring confusion, chaos and endless bloodshed, at home and abroad.  I pray to the Great Mother of us all that I am wrong in worrying about this so much.

What will the New Year bring for Canadians?



What will the New Year bring for Canadians? I think the western world lead by the US, and including Canada, is losing its collective mind. It’s as if the US is telling itself fairy tales and getting very angry when any collection of individuals or even one individual, who says, by way of resistance “but wait…I personally do not believe the bull excrement you are shoveling onto my doorstep (and into my airways)”. Not that any important media, or important person, for that matter, at least recognized by Canada, is trying to do this. But I personally rebel when the Canadian press and media, following the US story line, tries to persuade me, and millions of others, that Hillary Clinton lost the election because Putin personally elected Trump as US president by hacking into the American voting machines. I have to say they are lying through their expensive implanted teeth.


The US accusers can’t offer any proof of their accusations of Putin hacking because there isn’t any.  I ask, did Putin also hack the machines that put Republicans back into the Senate? And also hack into the House of Representatives voting machines?  The cabal of international interests that push austerity onto the people of the world while sucking the economy itself dry says it does. With the help of the Russia Today TV programs of course. The cabal claims that Putin, through RT, plays evil, insidious propaganda lies that are also very powerful and causes strange things to happen in America. Many US lawmakers are calling for the US to outright ban RT being broadcast in and into America. So much for freedom of speech.  So do I watch RT?


I do, and I don’t even have television.  I get RT through my computer.  I also tune in to other alternate news casts but none have the constantly growing ratings of RT.  I recommend RT to everyone.  Of course they are presenting the Russian point of view which the Russians say is the purpose of the news shows. Why would the Russians have a television show of Russia Today if not to present the Russian point of view? How can Canadians and Americans make up their minds about anything if they only hear one side?  That’s all we hear in most of the news programs that service the cabal (the side that CNN and 90 per cent of the other US broadcasting and our very own CBC) wants us to hear. Shouldn’t we also hear the other side?  Shouldn’t we all hear honest debate on how “the liberation of Aleppo” in The Russian media becomes the “the downfall of Aleppo” in the American media?  Even the government of British Columbia seems to think so.



The province of BC is now advertising on the Russian channel. The BC provincial government has been running a large, chatty video showing and explaining how wonderful British Columbia is to countries everywhere through the RT channel.  Christy Clark knows how many people worldwide watch RT.  Other Canadian businesses are beginning to catch on, too. I think it is too late to shut RT up. The cabal is trying to distract the people who are slipping out of the middle class, and even out of the working class, into abject poverty by blaming their economic and physic woes on the bogyman Putin instead of their own blood sucking policies which will eventually fail.  However, I think a “hard rain has to fall” before the US and Canada comes up with economic programs that allow all in our countries to prosper, not just the banks, and without prosperity being based on war.  But war with Russia is exactly what the US is conditioning the western world to accept by constantly presenting Putin as being beneath the consideration of civilized nations; of being inhuman.  The US headed cabal wants war with Russia in the New Year.  And apparently, listening to the CBC, Canada is willing to tag along.
