WHAT, WHICH, WHOSE WAR??

Well, guess WHO RETURNS TO IRAQ?

THE COMPANY TRUMP SUPPOSEDLY FIRED as Secretary of State!

What an extraordinary coincidence!!

At same website below find members, companies,  represented by JAFAR family dynasty in separate article/s.

Only question remains, I suppose, TERMS.

So, will there be FURTHER war, occupation, invasion than that already existing??

If so, where and for, with, by whom, against whom, and, why??

For all global knee jerk anti- war responses especially those representing ANY presumable stripe of  "Left," opposition, FRONT groups, organizations, they can just stop yapping, empty sloganeering, rhetoric, jargon, about NATO, EU, IMPERIALISM, ETC.

Every step of the way THEY practise policies of benign neglect, regional appeasement, collaboration, denial, with CRYPTIC, FASCIST, PSEUDO ISLAMIC, REGIMES and their regional movements like IRAN, HEZBOLLAH, Egypt's MB, "Arab Spring/Nightmare," AKP,  ALL helping to DESTROY, destabilize, what formerly were NATIONALIZED ARAB countries and INDUSTRIES.

ALL FAKE, LIKE TRUMP AND an ENTIRE PRIVATELY OWNED, FASCIST, CORPORATE MEDIA, WHORES, INSTITUTIONS, ESTABLISHMENT, HERE AND ABROAD:

HOW TO BECOME A SERIAL MASS MURDERER & EARN BILLIONS??

ANSWER...

...BECOME A PRIVATE CORPORATION!

Formula guaranteed BY LAW to make a killing.
History proves me correct each and every time.

Speaking of which, whatever happened NOT to Baby Jane but former Republican VP Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, nominated by Presidential candidate McCain, a woman our Love Me I'm Liberal Front groups and their barking dogs loved to hate, vilified??

Is Palin represented in NAZI Trump's Administration??

Unfortunately Palin, as I said previously, was NOT part of an Exxon fan club.
So, she's been effectively nullified, neutralized, eliminated.

However, Exxon, et.al., are doing JUST FINE.

Last, for some mild entertainment, amusement, and/or edification, a slice of history from a slightly lesser known region, but, part and parcel of a much larger, broader, context, subject matter, encompassing Civil War, post Civil War, Lincoln AND RRs, land investments, industrialization, PRIVATE OWNERSHIP, here and abroad, indigenous tribes, etc.:

NOT MISSILES: GROUND TROOPS!


One can dismiss ALL theatrical hyperbole, sensational, streaming, tabloid, media, GARBAGE, emanating out of reality TV star, parasitic real estate developer, casino, gambling, mafia connected, petty hustler, Trump's many orifices.

HOLDING GROUND REQUIRES PEOPLE, TROOPS, ARMIES, MERCENARIES AND/OR PROXIES, SURROGATES, PARTISAN, RESISTANCE, FIGHTERS, ETC.

THEIR MIDEAST SOLUTION, conundrum, translates to MORE OCCUPATION, "INVASION," DIVISIONS, coalition/s of the "willing or unwilling" to RECONCILE IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES, COMPETING, CONFLICTING, PRIVATELY OWNED ENERGY DEVELOPERS, INDIVIDUALS, CORPORATIONS, future, present, potential, INVESTMENTS.

So, NOTHING resolved by squandering multi-million/billion dollar TAXPAYER monies on military hardware and demonstration missile strikes, but, it does LOOK "good," powerful, for all concerned.

Demonstrations of power helps justify increasing, escalating, like national debt, astronomical military expenditures for TAXPAYER SUBSIDIZED, but, PRIVATELY OWNED, NAZI CORPORATE STATE APPARATUS, DICTATORSHIP, its/their bottom line, profit, and, THEIR PARTNERS IN CRIME ABROAD, including THEIR defined enemies. 

In my FIRST, for reasons unknown, but, at which I can guess, BLOCKED BLOG, I have appxly 300 entries pertinent to all happening now, a chronological continuum.

I decided to reproduce just a few, from time to time, selected randomly. 

Of course, embedded links OFTEN disappear.

So, for example, the following:

The Pakistan market up 800%, Crescent Oil, Dana Gas, BMA, Abraaj, Jafar, Iraq, the net grows wider and a side note about iron ore


A number of times, I've referred to "Sell, Sell, Sell in Pakistan," the title of a previous article from June 10, 2005 in the Asia Times regarding Pakistan's state selloff since the post-9/11 imbroglio. 
I've linked to this article in previous blogs, however, I'll do it once again, here:

www.atimes.com/atimes/South_Asia/GF10Df02.html 

A recent article in the WSJ, May 12, 2006, entitled, "Pakistan's Stock Surge Is Luring Foreign Funds," has the following statistics:

"Not many stock markets that are up 800% in recent years can be considered a good value. Some adventuresome investors claim Pakistan, which has kept pace with many of the world's hottest destinations for foreign capital, could be one...In the past 12 months, the benchmark Karachi Stock Exchange 100 index has surged 55%. With its huge gains since 2002, the index has outperformed better-known emerging markets Brazil, Russia, India and China....Alot of the fresh foreign capital is flowing through Pakistan-dedicated investment funds, including the first open-ended US-dollar dominated offshore equity fund, BMA Pakistan Opportunities Fund. Established in October, it has clocked a 23% return since inception, buying the prime beneficiaries of the country's strong economy: banks, cement and energy stocks...." 

Behind these sell-offs, privatizations, have been some very intense labor struggles, previously reported everywhere but here. And, of course, the Baluchistan situation has also been in the news regarding the proposed gas pipeline. And, American unions "advised" to invest in Pakistan.

Now, back to the firm mentioned in the article, BMA Pak Oppty Fund. 
It gets even better. BMA Pak Oppty Fund is a division of Abraaj Capital. 
Some of the following links regarding Abraaj Capital and BMA, for BEGINNERS/BACKGROUND:

www.ameinfo.com/67356.html 

and 

www.dinarstandard.com/finance/Abraaj041505.htm 

Long before the Iraq war began, I was posting/forwarding info on the establishment of these investment firms, of which Abraaj is but one of more than a few prominent names, generally, with interlocking directors. 
Follow another one called "Shuaa," for example, which is also represented on the Board of Abraaj. 
For more important info on Abraaj Capital, however, go to their corporate website and look around it:

www.abraaj.com/english

After looking around Abraaj's website, in case you happened to miss it, if you note on the Board of Directors of Abraaj Capital is none other than UAE's CEO and sole owner, Hamid Jafar of CRESCENT OIL! 
See my numerous previous blogs on this issue, Crescent, Dana Gas, Iran, etc! 
If anyone reading this hasn't been following the Crescent, Dana Gas, etc., story, go to my blog from March 7, 2006 and work backwards. 
And, while we're at it, on the Abraaj Board is ex-intelligence chief Saudi Prince Turki of previous Bin Laden, 9/11, TAP pipeline fame! 
Abraaj's entire Board of Directors is worthy of study. 
ALSO, it turns out, Hamid Jafar, sole CEO and owner of UAE's Crescent Oil, on the Board of Abraaj, is of Iraqi descent, AND, it seems, brother of British educated Iraqi physicist Jafar Dhia Jafar, supposedly involved wtih Iraq's "nuclear" project, who subsequently "fled" Iraq prior to the invasion. 
Hamid Jafar of Crescent Oil is on the Board of the American University at Sharjah, UAE, AND, as well, he's part of an organization about which I knew/know nothing called the "World President's Organization:" 

www.wpo.org  

For more detailed bio on the CEO of Abraaj, Masood Naqvi, try the following link:

www.clubs.wharton.upenn.edu/arabia/bios/conf_naqvi.html 

If this link does not work, simply do a search on his name, Masood Naqvi and you'll come up with this link plus more than you care to read. 
Another firm in which Naqvi's involved is the Cupola Group. 

And, lastly, it seems, there is a PRIVATE oil company operating in Iraq called Dome Group, or, Dome International, or, Dome Oil, which, it seems, is actually a UAE company. 
The CEO of UAE's Dome Oil/Group is, I believe, someone named Amin JAFAR. 
And, it turns out, Dome Oil/Group International was awarded a contract in southern Iraq:

www.menafn.com/qn_news_story_s.asp?storyid=78631 

Getting specific details other than the above regarding the Dome Group/Dome Oil/Dome International and Jafar has been very elusive. 
The financial web certainly grows wider and more internecine.
(For more generalized background, go to the ABANA website, Arab Bankers Assoc of North America, www.arabbankers.org).

A side note. 
Since steel production is very much in the news, these days, regarding takeovers between Mittal, Areclor and now the Russian firm, I think it important to keep in mind the following very significant statistic mentioned in passing in a brief article in the WSJ discussing the supply of iron-ore in the production of steel, the title of the article, May 19, 2006, "China's Steelmakers Hold Out As Suppliers Set Pricing Deals." According to one paragraph in this article, as follows: 

"....Just three companies--[Anglo-Australian] Rio Tinto, CVRD [Brazil's Companhia Vale do Rio Doce, SA], and Australia-based BHP Billiton Ltd--control roughly 75% of the world's exports of iron ore, which unlike most other commodities is priced according to annual contracts.

The impact of those few sentences is breathtaking.

End reproduced post above.

LAST, from THIS, AS YET, UNBLOCKED blog, another reminder:

FRENCH STRIKES, FAKE TRADE WARS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY


In view of recent French strikes, events, scroll earlier link down to topic above encompassing all else globally:


http://karlmarxwasright2.blogspot.com/2008/11/dubai-deutsche-bank-and-french-edf-cgt.html

As for Establishment trade war rhetoric, ignore it!


EMPTY RHETORIC, POLITICAL POSTURING, GARBAGE, BLUSTER, for election purposes.


Trump and all our NAZI DEMOCRATS, their CORPORATE CLONES and PARTNERS ABROAD, being economically intertwined and conjoined at the hip, dependent on one another to sustain their ZOMBIE, REACTIONARY, PRIVATIZED, VOODOO ECONOMIC SYSTEM, producing endless garbage transported back and forth across seas and around the globe, including energy, LNG, which these idiots want to export to China, amongst other places.


Meanwhile, most everyone  in Dis-united SUCKERS AND ASSHOLES homeland being slaughtered ECONOMICALLY by SAME local as national policies, i.e., TAX ABATEMENT, STIMULUS, QE, FREE INTERNATIONAL MONEY FUNNELED TO REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS, SPECULATORS, artificial PROSPERITY, ASSET BUBBLES, slave labor.


Someone wakes up almost overnite here with a house/home/building/rental valued at $30,000 to find it NOW taxed at $300,000 instead.

Same house, same everything!
EVERYONE ELSE  SUBSIDIES ARTIFICIALLY INFLATED ASSET PRICES!
A complete ARTIFICIAL prosperity--
on paper, like our PRIVATELY OWNED FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM.

Local, state, city governments, corporate whores, prostitutes, pimps, grovel and trip over themselves providing HUGE TAX ABATEMENT to LARGE INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE CORPORATIONS as so-called job incentives.


Only style, NOT substance, differentiates our twin NAZI political Parties.


An ONGOING REAL fighting and proxy war does exist, however, in the Mideast with millions of casualties, refugees, and, NO ABATEMENT in sight in THAT arena.


On the contrary.


That setup predetermined also in my previous posts.


I DID PROMISE EVERYONE PARTNERED WITH NAZI IRAN TO GO DOWN TOGETHER HOLDING HANDS.


I keep MY promises.


Meanwhile, an irresistible conceptual note on "intellectual property," which, I think, highlights nicely the absurd economic system and fictional property relationships in which all live, NOW.


Aside from the FACT ALL current, so-called, information technology derives  from initially US TAXPAYER FUNDED research, technological development, subsequently PRIVATELY APPROPRIATED FOR COMMERCIAL PROFIT, military use, etc., ponder an oxymoron concept such as intellectual property.


Does intellectual property, for example, include Newton or Einstein gravitational theories, developments, concepts, math, we use, APPLY, every day in every way??


Every scientific development, discovery, advance, could be considered "intellectual property."


So, who gets paid for these scientific concepts, theories, developments, once they become applicable EVERYWHERE IN EVERY WAY AND BY EVERYONE??


A categorical universe such as intellectual property, as defined above, TO ME seems to possess infinite possibilities.


WHO OWNS ALL THESE APPLIED IDEAS, DEVELOPMENTS, THEORIES, CONCEPTS??


How are OWNERS paid, especially those deceased??


Unfortunately, I do NOT have MORE time to develop this conceptual puzzle palace, conundrum.

So, I leave it up to you to have fun!!

Enjoy yourselves!

IF you have good ideas, drop me a note for the comment section.

TODAY AND YESTERDAY

Sound similar to TODAY??



LINK FOLLOWS BELOW:

"THE TIME will come when people will not believe it was possible to mobilize 10,800,000 Americans to fight Fascism and not tell them the truth about the enemy. 

And yet, this is exactly what happened in our country in the Global War.


The Office of War Information published millions of words, thousands of pamphlets, posters and other material, most of it very valuable and all of it intended to inspire the people and raise the morale of the soldiers of production and the soldiers of the field; but it is also a fact that to the date of this writing the OWI did not publish a single pamphlet, poster, broadside or paper telling either the civilian population or the men and women in uniform what Fascism really is, what the forces are behind the political and military movements generally known as Fascism, who puts up the money, who make the tremendous profits which Fascism has paid its backers in Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and other nations. Certainly when it comes to relating foreign Fascism with native American Fascism there is a conspiracy of silence in which the OWI, the American press, and all the forces of reaction in America are united.


Faraway Fascism has been attacked, exposed, and denounced by the same publications (the Saturday Evening Post for example) which for years ran articles lauding Mussolini and his notable backers in all lands; and the Hearst newspapers, which published from 1934 to Pearl Harbor dozens of signed propaganda articles by Dr. Goebbels, Goering and other Nazis, now call them names, but no publication which takes money from certain Big Business elements (all of which will be named here) will dare name the native or nearby Fascists. In many instances the publications themselves are part of our own Fascism.


But we must not be fooled into believing that American Fascism consists of a few persons, some crackpots, some mentally perverted, a few criminals such as George W. Christians and Pelley, who are in jail at present, or the 33 indicted for sedition. These are the lunatic fringes of Fascism, they are also the small fry, the unimportant figureheads, just as Hitler was before the Big Money in Germany decided to set him up in business.


The real Fascists of America are never named in the commercial press..."

PEARL, DANA, IRAQ, KRG, A HAPPY REUNION

Read following report at website below and laughed aloud.

Old NAZI friends reunite, IRAQ TRAITOR EXTRAORDINAIRE, BCCI, JAFAR, DANA GAS, ABRAAJ INVESTMENTS, AND, then, BELOW:

https://www.iraqoilreport.com/news/new-deal-to-unlock-krg-gas-production-28341/

Searched my own blog under heading PEARL PETROLEUM.
Did NOT search above names, categories, which would yield hundreds, maybe, thousands, of entries.
Too many for a single post.
Do it yourselves IF you wish.
So, a simple minded refresher:

TREX; IRAN REGIME CHANGE; TAPI & DOMESTIC NOTES


I promised myself NOT to comment anymore on what SHOULD be obvious.


It gets boring and tedious to ME!

But, a RECENT US SEC'Y OF STATE, PRESIDENT, TREX RESIGNATION, NOT, AS NONSENSICALLY DEPICTED HERE, FIRING, WAS TOO GOOD TO RESIST.


But, firing sounds good to brainwashed, propagandized, masses.

TREX and EXXON liabilities to a Trump Administration and vice-versa AT THE MOMENT.

Exxon has lots of negative baggage associated with him/them, sued in various states HERE and major investments, involvements, abroad, along with its perfidious NAZI history.

Furthermore, he/they do NOT need or want such a HIGH PROFILE, UP FRONT, IN THE SPOTLIGHT, position, preferring, instead, to pull behind the scenes strings.

TRex did NOT accomplish what I'm sure Trex and Trump wanted, i.e., RESOLUTION OF MAJOR MILITARY CONFLICTS NOW DESTROYING, DESTABILIZING, AN ENTIRE MIDEAST ARC, AND, THEIR INVESTMENTS THANKS FIRST TO THEIR PARTNERSHIP with NAZI IRAN, (see my post/s below and their many links backwards), THEN, or, in addition to, SAUDIS, helpful conduits to OUR TALIBAN FREEDOM FIGHTERS IN AFGHANISTAN and counter-revolution everywhere. 


And, NOW comes implementation of a much sought TAPI PIPELINE, (see SYNOPSIS in link below, following), a project for which the US INVADED AFGHANISTAN IN THE FIRST PLACE, 9/11 PROVOCATION orchestrated and an area of the globe which MUST be secured for THEIR vast energy and PRIVATIZATION project/s to become reality, part and parcel of ABOVE contested and competing ground with NO security, stability, WHATSOEVER AT THE MOMENT.


So, in comes CIA Secy of State, I.E., direct COVERT AND OVERT MILITARY OPERATIONS DIRECTOR, regime change, etc.


And, of course, should things end badly, Trump IS both dispensable and disposable.
EXXON IS NOT.


Exxon, Trex, can exercise both plausible denial and distance.


NO change, like our elections.
EXXON IS NOT LIQUIDATED, PROSECUTED, ITS ASSETS NATIONALIZED, SEIZED!


Until and unless THAT happens, it's meaningless business as usual.
So, link to which I refer above:




https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkmenistan%E2%80%93Afghanistan%E2%80%93Pakistan%E2%80%93India_Pipeline




For a few irresistible domestic comments.


I commented many times before on a curious PATTERN of US homeland insecurity, supposedly homegrown, terrorists, who NEVER, EVER, attack strategic targets, AS THEY DO ELSEWHERE IN THE MIDEAST.


Next, I MAY be incorrect about this FACT, but, from memory, I BELIEVE, ALL School shootings occurred in PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS, NEVER PRIVATE OR CHARTER SCHOOLS!!


Another curious FACT, STATISTIC, to add to above and below.


All our homegrown terrorist attackers in SOME WAY or another are KNOWN beforehand to police, supposed internal, domestic, security, intelligence, agencies and/or they have been warned, suspicious clues, etc.


Yet, SOMEHOW, they manage to slip thru our vast, multibillion dollar security net, radar screen??


Further, NO investigation, accountability, responsibility, as to WHO AND HOW they manage to slip thru this vast security net without detection.
NO FOLLOWUP after the event occurs and drops off/out of the news.


ABOVE REPRESENTS A CURIOUS PATTERN, DOESN'T IT?


Instead, lots of demonstrations, protests, political jockeying, around issues of gun control, all of which may be viable ones, BUT, WHAT ABOUT ABOVE??


Doesn't it appear an odd inverse ratio?


The greater OUR NATIONAL SECURITY STATE APPARATUS INCREASES, the more monies spent, THE MORE TERRORISTS SEEM TO SLIP THRU THE NET.


It's a rhetorical question, obviously.


If they can get away with State Sponsored BARBARIC DOMESTIC terrorism, events like 9/11, Kennedy Assassination, brutal assassinations abroad, Fascist militias, regime change at home AND ABROAD, what's alittle school shooting more or less??


Mere collateral damage!


I have not even mentioned OUR privately USURPED, APPROPRIATED, COMMERCIALIZED, but, publicly, tax funded, creation, the internet, and it's domestic surveillance, clandestine, role, hacking, etc. 


Big Brother KNOWS everything!


But, that's another subject, too lengthy for one post.


Finally, as for prosperity in the US, there IS, HAS BEEN, WILL BE, NONE FOR ALL redundant reasons above and those enumerated repetitively on my many posts.


THEIR SYSTEM IS DEAD!!


It's been dead for the last 100 or so years.
Resurrecting it is IMPOSSIBLE!
It died with WWI and the BOLSHEVIK REVOLUTION.
It is impossible to reconcile the many CONTRADICTIONS within WITHOUT OWNERSHIP change!!
It is a SYSTEMIC PROBLEM, climate change being ONE of its MANY manifestations.
FUEL being NOT the ONLY reason, but, a fundamental aspect of ALL OTHER INDUSTRIES, INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION, TOXIC CORPORATE AGRICULTURE, CARS, REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT, SPECULATION, UNBRIDLED SPRAWL, EXPANSION, MARKETS, CONSUMPTION, HEALTH CARE, HOUSING, TELECOMMUNICATIONS, ETC.


The globe is producing TOXIC, USELESS, REDUNDANT, GARBAGE, COMMODITIES, products, SHIPPING THEM AROUND THE WORLD, expending enormous resources in their production, transportation, distribution, consumption, patterns, to satisfy AN EVER EXPANDING PROFIT NEED.


Lastly, to that end, the Chinese Communist Party, should be labeled, instead, the Chinese CAPITALIST Party!

A RECAP


I thought to do a very SMALL recap, selection, from a few earlier posts regarding salient points STILL much in the news as a continuum, answer, reminder, REJOINDER, to the UTTER HYPOCRISY of ALL below, here and abroad, labeled OPPOSITION CONTINUING TO DENY, REFUSING TO RECOGNIZE, ANY, and more, of the FACTS, REALITIES ON THE GROUND, named below.

So, AS PROMISED, ALL TO PAY for FASCIST treachery, barbaric collaboration, collusion, investments, denial, appeasement, EXPANSION, APOLOGISTS for HOSTILE OCCUPATIONS, regime changes, BIG and corresponding little LIES, ETC.

Never say I do NOT KEEP MY PROMISES!:

And:

http://karlmarxwasright2.blogspot.com/2014/07/ditto.html

Then, read ALSO an earlier entry today, just below...

ROSNEFT, ET.AL.


Below, some pertinent info, EXCEPT, I take issue at a continued Rosneft classification as some sort of State institution.


I think it imperative to remind everyone, amongst others, ROSNEFT is NOT a "state" institution.


If Rosneft is NATIONALIZED, then, so are EXXON and others named in MY many posts.


So, report, link, to which I refer above and then SOME of MANY earlier posts regarding this and related matters:
First:

If you wish to read further, simply search MY blog under, FOR EXAMPLE, ROSNEFT.

Or, the internet.

More to say ANOTHER TIME about most current BIG LIE FACTORY.


Experiencing some technical problems again.

"POWER TRIP" & "TREX KILLERSON" ADMINISTRATION


I don't bother posting anymore because ECONOMIC reasons, FACTS, motivations, are SO obvious, blatant, in one's face, TO ME, it seems like an exercise in futility, redundancy.

IF ONE SIMPLY LOOKS, it merely becomes a matter of filling in blank spaces, details, ECONOMICS, people, individuals, corporations, fighting one another in a BARBARIC, REACTIONARY, RECIDIVIST CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY NAZI/FASCIST FUTILE, DOOMED, PRIVATIZATION BATTLE.

SYSTEMIC COLLAPSE.

Occasionally, however, I look at SOME info, reports, and, laugh.
So, I thought to share this one ironic occasion with others.

Like, for example, website below where, along with a report about BP's RETURN to Kirkuk, the proceeding exists, also:

https://www.iraqoilreport.com/news/iraq-pushes-electricity-reform-prompting-protests-27379/

So, I juxtapose above with a very good, slightly older, documentary regarding same subject matter, but, different place and earlier time.

I did NOT find the documentary film to which I refer above, "Power Trip," DIRECTLY available on youtube.
The best I could do is a version, link, below.
IF you are able to find a more direct way to view it, be my guest.
Otherwise, make do, which IS possible:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gn-AuRIpcdU

I could go on and on with GLOBAL variations on SAME theme, but, will stop here.

Not just electricity, but, ALL ENERGY, industry, and, much, most, of everything regarding industrial production, distribution, communication, transportation, food, housing, natural resources, etc.

So, I'll just end with the following going, more or less, full circle around.

If you want more, read earlier posts and/or SEARCH the internet.

Whatever you do IGNORE FAKE, SPONSORED, OPPOSITION HERE AND/OR ABROAD, propaganda, disinformation, spin, revisionist history, distraction, diversion, etc.:


http://johnhelmer.net/we-are-back-again-just-two-years-to-go-before-the-profession-of-journalism-disappears-but-will-the-russian-oligarchs-go-first/


As for TRex Killerson's LATEST, ONGOING, DEPLORABLE, NAZI ROCKEFELLER/CITIGROUP/EXXON/MORGAN, ET. AL., US Dictatorship, Administration, it is, I THINK, best characterized by THEIR current mafia front man, idiot, thug, operative, trash, petty hustler, real estate developer, reality TV star, in Washington, i.e., Trump.

"MOURNING BECOMES ELECTRA": TO GREECE WITH LOVE


HAPPILY I stumbled upon an OLD US film initially a Eugene O'Neill theatrical, stage, production from early 1930s adapted in 1947 by the Theatre Guild to FILM.


Fortunately, the 1947 Theatre Guild version is available on YOUTUBE and I link to it below, at the end.


But, by way of introduction, for anyone NOT familiar with this 1947 classic, an EXTRACT below WELL characterizes the US both then and now, especially Hollywood AND its cheap, crappy, commercial, entertainment, exported, along with ALL other NAZI manufactured garbage, abroad:


"....Many reviews commented on the non-commercial, intellectual nature of this film. 

In a NYT article published shortly before the film's New York opening, Dudley Nichols voiced his concern about current Hollywood film making and the riskiness of projects like Mourning Becomes Electra 

"After spending a year's continuous effort on the film production of...'Mourning Becomes Electra,' I can only hope that it will be liked by the people whose judgment I respect....So long as the people demand witless entertainment and adolescent films, and stay away in flocks when an adult film is presented, they will continue to get them." 

As feared by Nichols, Mourning Becomes Electra was a box office failure, losing, according to modern sources, $2,310,000..."



FROM:


https://catalog.afi.com/Catalog/moviedetails/25275



I have one further comment, or, question to ask,
before film link, below.

ALL  in THIS film give superb performances, but, in MY opinion, well known GREEK classical performer KATINA PAXINOU simply was outstanding, breathtaking, mesmerizing.

IN MY OPINION, this particular production would NOT have had the spectacular dramatic qualities it possesses without PAXINOU!

PAXINOU MADE THE FILM, DROVE ITS DRAMATIC CONTENT, DEPTH, ALONG WITH A SUPPORTING CAST.

If one searches the internet, Paxinou's career is well documented.

HOWEVER, MY ONE CURIOUS, NAGGING, QUESTION ABOUT PAXINOU.

It is noted on ALL English language internet searches  Paxinou's PROMINENT FAMILY DISOWNED HER.

NEVER, however, named or noted as to WHO, precisely, is/was this prominent Greek family??

It is an interesting question for ME for a number of different reasons.

Unfortunately, her family name, Konstantopoulou, in ENGLISH being easily confounded with MANY Greeks.
Since I do NOT read Greek, I was UNABLE to ascertain anything more than above information IN ENGLISH.

Her father's first name is/was Basil.
I DID find that!

But, that's ALL I found available IN ENGLISH.

So, maybe someone else can answer THAT ONE nagging question for me.

An ASSUMPTION on MY part being ANY prominent Greek family relates to SHIPPING, somehow??

One additional comment before film.

O'Neill's original theatrical production appeared subsequent to WWI, the early 1930s.
This later film adaptation appears in 1947, just after WWII.

Altho ostensibly set in the US Civil War period, allusions to war, death, dying, dark philosophical ruminations, in MY opinion, reflect ALL war, but, most certainly, applicable to what had been experienced first in WWI, then, most recently, at THAT point, WWII.

These two factors hardly to be considered coincidental.

So, MOVIE LINK BELOW:
