Once upon a time, not too long ago, a little song, tune, rhyme, ditty, composed during a US Vietnam War period existed, which, IF not familiar with it already, asks following, above, question, more or less paraphrased:
"One, two, three, what are we fighting for?
No, I don't give a damn, I'm going to Vietnam.."
So, LINK BELOW represents most current answer to SAME question, song.
NOW, instead, US OUTSOURCES THEIR NAZI WARS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE with use of SURROGATES, mercenaries, at home and abroad, volunteer forces, armies, thugs, fascists, militias, private firms, etc., instead of a conscript army.
Politicians HERE are afraid to use ground troops from THIS country anywhere on the globe.
Coffins coming home do not make good politics.
Besides, it is NOT cost effective.
NO profit to be had from useless grunts, ground troops, humans, requiring taxpayer MONEY to meet their needs, feed, house, cloth them, then, administer to their disabilities, post traumatic stress, wounds, IF they manage to survive.
Instead, much better to produce LOTS of military hardware, TECHNOLOGY, a perpetual and growing national (in)security INDUSTRY, private intelligence agencies, assassins, thugs, gun and drug cartels, money laundering, privatized PROFITEERING, BUSINESS, market share, "homeland insecurity, terrorism," etc.
So, answer to heading and song above:
As for empty, bombastic, noises emanating out of most current idiot and reality TV star, mobster, entertainer, FRONT MAN, resident, in the US White House, a DIFFERENT kind of bombshell scheduled to explode FOR SURE come September, early Fall, when Congress returns, namely, "to raise or not to raise" US Federal DEBT CEILING limit.
THAT IS THE QUESTION!
This movie has played before, recently, but a command performance upcoming, a SURE, rather than uncertain, POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC BOMBSHELL, bet, starring PRIVATELY OWNED Federal Reserve MONEY with which one can bank and a revolving door of star studded faces!
In conclusion, I cannot resist tangentially adding my OWN commentary, that being:
Facebook is F-CKBOOK!
Hopefully, my blog will NOT be censored for obscenity!
Along with most all commercially USURPED internet garbage, a plethora of redundant and STUPID electronic gadgets, games, videos, apps, and so on.
NO value added.
They/it produce NO basic needs, related industries, such as housing, food, energy, transportation, education, medical services, etc.
It/they represent nothing but hype and another artificially manufactured, PRIVATIZED, ASSET BUBBLE, investment vehicle.
Finally, how about GLOBAL economic SANCTIONS against ALL those represented ABOVE?
Why do sanctions apply ONLY one way and not in multiple directions??
Monday, July 31, 2017
For reasons above, I do NOT WASTE MY own precious time listening to reality TV Congressional testimony, hearings, FAKE media of all stripes, hues, varieties, misnomer THINK TANKS, INTERNET websites, Establishment pundits, front groups, apologists, covert operatives, career politicians, and, so on.
It's a vast industry, employing many thousands, millions.
But, despite my best intentions, sometimes, like the other day, I happened to turn on my TV, briefly, to a C-Span channel, when, LO & BEHOLD, I saw in front of me in the flesh a GHOSTLY APPARITION, WILLIAM BROWDER of Hermitage Capital, and, could not resist watching this well SCRIPTED, made for TV, docudrama, comedy, soap opera, theatre, of epic historical and SORDID proportion IF one understands ALL BACKGROUND, context, players, and, so on.
TO ME IT WAS HYSTERICAL SITCOM, extraordinary hubris!
The multitudinous cynical and hypocritical contradictions represented by this entire TAXPAYER extravaganza are/were truly overwhelming, ghastly, jaw dropping, mind boggling, which is why one must take it with a grain of salt as scripted political theatre, no more nor less.
Otherwise, one would go mad, insane, rage, throw things at dumb, stupid, electronic devices--accomplishing nothing other than killing a messenger.
I warn all, testimony is LONG, over an hour, but, IF, instead, you prefer reading a FEW, relatively short, choice links FIRST regarding SOME connections to which I allude above, go to my 2ND link, just below, where I search my OWN blog for a refresher with the name Earl Browder.
And, then, IF you wish, return to first link, Congressional testimony.
So, FIRST LINK, WILLIAM BROWDER TESTIMONY:
Then, or, in addition, or, first, 2nd LINK for JUST A FEW CHOICE BACKGROUND CONNECTIONS:
Sunday, July 16, 2017
I can NOT do justice to this sort of subject matter with a well organized, GOOD, post, essay, presentation, BUT, it is of utmost importance for a number of different reasons which SHOULD become self-evident as you follow my links, below, IF you are not aware of this situation, already.
Bear with me because, of necessity, this will be a hasty, ECLECTIC, and somewhat disjointed, post.
I hate to present anything this way, but, I feel, believe, it MORE necessary to say SOMETHING, rather than nothing, even if it is a somewhat disheveled, disorganized, snapshot.
The motto for this post being, do not let perfection be an enemy of an albeit imperfect good.
Better to say something than nothing.
A NUMBER of different events and e-mails motivated, sparked, me to do this post.
The ONLY reason I have NOT done anything BEFORE about this subject matter being that the information is widely or reasonably well known and represents in ALL my posts what I refer to as a manufactured political bifurcation, dichotomy, LEFT/LIBERAL/RIGHT by a PRIVATELY OWNED, TWIN, FASCIST POLITICAL PARTY, ESTABLISHMENT, DICTATORSHIP, REGIME.
That's why I describe it as the one two punch or two step dance.
So, let's begin this little exercise with the following, a Kennedy Assassination conference featured recently on C-Span.
All below being NOT what it seems on first appearance, however.
The fact they/it appear on our PRIVATELY OWNED BROADBAND CABLE SYSTEM outlet, C-Span, being significant in itself to ME AND WHO SPONSORS their conference.
AND THEN WHO PARTICIPATES, thus lending credibility, TO THIS SHAM OUTLET!!
This helps discredit (and limit) by the LIBERAL MEDIA/INSTITUTIONS, the very information, much of which, but, not quite all, being valid, and, persons presenting.
The KOCH BROTHERS sponsor this event!
Who are the KOCH BROTHERS?
Well, they are well known HERE, PERHAPS, less so abroad, as a PRIVATELY OWNED, BUT, NOT LISTED ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE, GIANT INDUSTRIAL CONGLOMERATE.
I included NUMEROUS LINKS BELOW to indicate their assets, domestic and international, holdings, connections, in case you are unfamiliar with them.
One can do much more investigative research yourself if you wish.
First, a link to the Kennedy Assassination conference which THEY sponsored.
I warn you, it's LONG!:
Next, below, a number of links regarding Koch Brothers AND THEIR EQUALLY FASCIST AGENDA, PROGRAM, history, background.
But, HOPEFULLY, as you can or will see for yourselves, it is HOW they SPIN information and what is left out of their STORY, NARRATIVE, INTERPRETATION, REPRESENTED above and below, which leads to THEIR influence peddling and disinformation.
A very important FACT to remember ORGANIZED LABOR, AFL-CIA/SEIU, INVEST THEIR PENSION MONEYS IN NAZI ROCKEFELLER CITIGROUP/ EXXON/MORGAN/ET.AL., BUT, NOT KOCH BECAUSE it/they are NOT traded on the stock market.
This being a, if not THE, most important fact surrounding US ORGANIZED LABOR, AFL-CIA/SEIU, COMPROMISE, COLLUSION, CAPITULATION, PARTNERSHIP, with a ROCKEFELLER LED CARTEL, GROUPING, and, WHY NO INDEPENDENT CLASS resistance, opposition, party, program, exists HERE.
So, it's easy and simple for Koch to step into a political and economic vacuum.
I also have a few links below regarding what I recall the inter-connections of a former COVERT, PSEUDO LEFT, FRONT GROUP, led by a mysterious, cult like figure, Lyndon Larouche whom I assume to be interconnected with the proceeding, preceding, latest re-incarnation.
The Larouche group in years past was violently and severely anti-communist, physically threatening, intimidating, all the while claiming to be a TRUE re-incarnation of Communism!
I also have reason to believe Larouche was financially sponsored, or, connected, one way or another, with our NAZI pedigree Delaware DuPont chemical conglomerate and THEIR family business.
I included an OLD link, flow chart, NOT comprehensive and must be updated, from a Left Gatekeepers website, as you will see below, showing WHO AND HOW our VARIOUS Liberal/Left front groups are funded, BUT, also, there exist flow charts for the KOCH Brothers, additionally.
OCCASIONALLY, they overlap!
A flow chart for the Koch Brothers, I believe, is in one of the links below.
This is HOW our one two punch, or, two step dance works, and, our PRIVATELY OWNED NATURAL RESOURCES, INDUSTRIES, FINANCING, NEVER become SYSTEMICALLY CHALLENGED, THREATENED, CHANGED, INVERTED, OVERTURNED!
The NAZI OBOOMA CARTEL ALONG WITH OUR/THEIR UNIONS THREW EVERY HISTORICAL OPPORTUNITY, MOMENT, TO CHANGE, INVERT, REDUCE, CHALLENGE, THIS POWER RELATIONSHIP, OWNERSHIP, UNDER A NAZI BUS AND HISTORICAL DUST BIN!
And, so, this is what remains, representing NO answer, but, SYSTEMIC DESPERATION, CRISIS!
Wednesday, July 5, 2017
Already, I know WHO WINS and LOSES!!
For the latter, it is EVERYBODY except ALL, not some, PRIVATE interests mentioned below and in ALL my previous posts!:
For the latter, it is EVERYBODY except ALL, not some, PRIVATE interests mentioned below and in ALL my previous posts!:
One of MANY ways HERE AND ABROAD people suffer QUIET, INVISIBLE, "lives of desperation," economic death, aside from, in addition to, unemployment, underemployment, poverty wages, exploitation, inadequate and/or expensive health care, suffocating debt, hunger, war, dislocation, etc., is with/by/from homelessness and its corresponding GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZED, PRIVATE, LUXURY REAL ESTATE
SPECULATION, DEVELOPMENT, CONSTRUCTION, EXPANSION, occurring most everywhere in the US, and, abroad.
This subject rarely acknowledged or highlighted in everyday Establishment media and/or politics since most ALL private capital AND THEIR POLITICIANS in one or another way involved in this stealth SUDDEN DEATH, DISPLACEMENT SYSTEM.
These HOUSING, real estate, land speculation, development policies, KILL those our armchair, limousine, BILLIONAIRE sponsored, Love me I'm Liberal, institutions, think tanks, individuals, POLITICIANS, CLAIM they want to help, serve, etc., along with lots of "charity" monies available for those "less fortunate" victims who INCREASE PROPORTIONALLY AND ASTRONOMICALLY by the very policies THEY PERPETUATE themselves above/below!
It is a BIPARTISAN adventure.
Sleazebag, petty, small time, trash, inarticulate, stupid, gangster connected, hustler and real estate mogul, profiteer, TV entertainer, Trump, WELL understands the way the game is played from his own NYC background.
NYC subsequently becoming a playground for the GLOBAL wealthy, rich, famous, thanks to preceding processes removing ALL vestiges of ANY working class, modest income, housing INHABITANTS.
IF you do NOT like Trump, you do NOT like our ENTIRE SYSTEM!
So, stop complaining.
Trump is a perfect embodiment of our economic system but in your face, instead of with a genteel veneer!
Personally, I prefer my Fascism right up front.
NYC was/is a special national case event and prototype since it had a unique system of approximately, around, one million, more or less, RENT CONTROLLED apartments emanating from pre AND post WWII circumstances.
THAT SYSTEM HAD TO BE DESTROYED, DEMOLISHED, REPLACED, FROM WITHIN, FIRST, in order for inflationary speculation to occur.
NY sets a stage for elsewhere in the country.
Not ethnic, but, economic cleansing!
Also, any NYC industry which DID exist, at one time, DISAPPEARED, in significant part due to real estate economics, what they call GENTRIFICATION, nothing more than a name for another ARTIFICIALLY INFLATED housing, real estate, rent, "condo," land, asset bubble.
Urban renewal means urban removal.
Wealthy, or, those indebted, "upward mobile," move in, the rest move out or onto the streets, becoming a vast army, sea, of invisible urban refugees.
Housing, land usage, real estate, being just another commodity in a profit driven, commodity, PRIVATELY OWNED, SPECULATIVE, market system.
Major and minor urban centers thruout the US participate in this ongoing economic free for all fueled by CONTINUED OBOOMA FEDERAL RESERVE STIMULUS MONIES, QE, POLICIES EMANATING out of WASHINGTON, D.C., ALONG, IN CONJUNCTION, WITH LOCAL TAX REAL ESTATE TAX ABATEMENT FOR DEVELOPERS, FREE MONEY ALL AROUND, except, of course, for their disposable and dispensable economic victims.
A win-win for PRIVATE CAPITAL!
EVERYONE else SUDDENLY finds themselves FORCED TO SUBSIDIZE LOCAL TAX LOSSES, experiencing almost over nite, literally, ENORMOUS, ARTIFICIALLY INFLATED, GALLOPING, REAL ESTATE TAX ASSESSMENTS, VALUES, RENTS, AND, AS A RESULT, they MUST leave homes or apartments of long standing due to inability to PAY these exorbitant, ARTIFICIALLY DRIVEN, INFLATED, REAL ESTATE VALUES AND TAXES, ALL CONSEQUENCE OF OBOOMA PRIVATELY OWNED FEDERAL RESERVE QE, I.E., STIMULUS MONIES ALONG WITH LOCAL TAX ABATEMENT POLICIES!
Those 2 factors create SUDDEN ghettos, virtually overnite, working in tandem, hand in glove, together, creating yet another real estate asset bubble, generating MORE POVERTY BY ALL ABOVE who willingly participate in illusions, delusions, of economic grandeur and prosperity for all!
Well, THESE REAL ESTATE POLICES of FREE STIMULUS MONIES, TAX ABATEMENT, MUST CHANGE, STOP, HALT, IN ADDITION TO ALL ELSE.
There can, must, and, should be NO LOCAL collaboration, IMPLEMENTATION, cooperation, with ANY policies above, counter actions and polices developed accordingly!
Sunday, July 2, 2017
FIRST, by way of introduction, appetizer, to main event, a reproduction of a 1993 article, title above, I thought to HIGHLIGHT a CURRENT proposed investment partnership between GREECE, EXXON, our Resident NAZI INTERNATIONAL CARTEL, and, the CLIENTS THEY REPRESENT, with US Secy of State, i.e., PRESIDENT, TREX, BECAUSE, THEY, IT, ARE THE ONGOING HISTORIC LINEAGE, PRESENT, NAZI POWER relationship, nexus, here and abroad, with, of course, their cloned PRIVATE interests created in NOW garbage dump CHINA, Russia, Mideast, etc.
Everything they touch, they trash!
These are BARBARIC EMPIRES like those of yore, dressed in modern apparel.
There is NO, little, difference except superficial ones.
Substantially, the rules of the game operate on SAME principles, simply updated.
AS YET, NO ORGANIZED GLOBAL OPPOSITION, RECOGNITION, TO PRIVATE CAPITAL ACCUMULATION, certainly, specifically, capital intensive LNG DEVELOPMENT, EVERYWHERE, ANYWHERE, ITS EXPORT AND/OR IMPORT, ALL MORTGAGED in perpetuity IF this FRANKENSTEIN monster becomes reality!!
Anyone reading my blog for some time knows I reprint material from sources like FORMER Establishment, but, independent, financial Wall St Journal daily BEFORE its hostile takeover representing forces, above, below.
But, I have LOTS of material from OTHER sources, as well, which I do NOT reproduce simply because it is too voluminous and difficult for me to select one item.
However, I WILL do ONE example, below.
Once again, I can NOT link to this article ANYWHERE on the internet, I have NO access to the archives and I can not reproduce it myself except simply type it verbatim, a time consuming process.
If anyone KNOWS how to find or link ON to it via the internet, I would be happy IF they provided this information to the public and myself in the comment section.
So, here goes.
MY ONE AND ONLY BOLDFACE sentence below being SOLELY MY editorial EMPHASIS.
It is NOT highlighted in the article, itself.
The sentence I boldfaced, below, along with much of everything else in the article, has VOLUMINOUS amounts of FACTUAL information surrounding it which I can NOT comprehensively put into a single entry, or, blog.
It takes VOLUMES, libraries, books, multiple languages, sources, primary research, etc.
As MANY people DO know, for example, cryptic, pseudo, MANUFACTURED FASCIST Islamic forces were used thru Albania in what FORMERLY was Yugoslavia and subsequent NAZI IMPERIALIST WAR, ATTACK, COUP, instrumental in Yugoslav dismemberment.
Tons of information exists on THAT one item alone.
And, recall, remember, nefarious money laundering role, arms, drug cartels, represented by BCCI (Bank of Criminal and Crooks International, as WE called it/them, associated presently with, amongst others, CURRENT Iraq traitor extraordinaire Jafar and Company of Dana Gas/Crescent Oil/Abraaj Investment, et.al.)??
And, of course, Saudi (Rockefeller Saudi Aramco/EXXON/Citigroup/JP MORGAN CHASE) in Chechnya, Afghanistan, and more.
These SURROGATE, pseudo, cryptic, Islamic militias, armies, thugs, extend themselves NOW thruout the Mideast and elsewhere, globally.
ALL KNOWN TO and/or CREATED BY SO-CALLED DIS-INFORMATION COVERT, NATIONAL "SECURITY," AGENCIES, a PLETHORA of FRONT GROUPS, CIA OPERATIVES, foundations, and so on.
Returning full circle to whence I began this post, PERHAPS, GREEK boundaries MAY be next on THEIR agenda in the form of what THEY call irredentism.
I DID WARN everyone, accepting, appeasing, recognizing, a BRUTAL, BARBARIC, HOSTILE, NAZI MANUFACTURED ARYAN IRAN, PERSIAN, REGIME OCCUPATION, ANNEXATION, OF ARAB IRAQ, territories, NOW, SYRIA, PROXY FORCES, HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH, ETC., GUARANTEED DISASTER AND FURTHER WARFARE, liberation movements, resistance, armies.
What's good for an Arab goose good for a European gander.
Or, Asian, African, one, as well.
One Fascist Occupation begets another.
So, AS PROMISED above, MAIN EVENT BELOW:
FROM "PEOPLE'S WEEKLY WORLD"
(organ, publication, of the CPUSA, formerly published daily, now, available ONLY on line, weekly, not in print!)
July 3, 1993
"ANTI-FASCIST CONGRESS MEETS IN MOSCOW"
(NO Byline listed--sorry!)
"On June 22, 1941, the fascist forces led by the anti-communist Adolf Hitler, invaded the first land of socialism.
June 22, 1993, the anti-fascist forces of the former USSR gathered in Moscow to combat the rise of fascism in the former Soviet Union.
Today there are few places in the world where communists are more persecuted than in the former USSR.
Today, counterrevolution there is led by former leaders of the CP of the SU (CPSU).
These renegades made possible what even the mightiest, most savage armies in history could not achieve: the destruction of the great socialist state, the illegalization of the CPSU and a reign of terror against communists and patriots.
A new form of apartheid has been introduced into the 'independent' Baltic states, where recently enacted laws have transformed the substantial Russian speaking minority into disenfranchised, rightless, foreigners.
In Lithuania, whose president, a former communist leader, opened the gates to semi-fascist ultra-nationalists, CP membership can subject one to long imprisonment.
In Ukraine, where a united CP has just been reestablished, the party is still illegal and the western part is the stronghold of fascist like ultra-nationalists.
In Moldova a savage war was launched against the Dneister Republic, the sole, tiny outpost of the former USSR.
In the Russian Federation Yeltsin is now engaged in a drive to close off the constitutional channels to the growing movement against the return to capitalism.
As Oleg Sheinin, chair of the Union of CPs-CPSU (UCPs-CPSU), noted in his report to the Congress:
For the first time the world is witnessing a new form of fascization taking place in the former USSR.
Your correspondent, invited to speak as a representative of the CPUSA stressed that this development relfected the new critical problems faced by Communists and anti-fascists in Russia and former Soviet Republics arising from the temporary reversal of the progressive path of history.
The forces of reaction lead by the Yeltsinites and supported by world monopoly capitalism were coming into collision with the very forces of history.
They realize there will never be a second chance and are resorting to the most extreme methods to cling to power.
Alexei Prigarin, a leader of the Union of Communist Parties-CP of the SU (UCPs-CPSU), noted that the reise of fascism here differed from its classic form: instead of arising in the developed capitalist countries, it was aimed at the full destruction of socialism from within.
He warned against Russian fascist groups attempting to parasitize on the great patriotic movement but pointed out they have no mass base and their possibilities are inhibited by the deep roots of socialism and internationalism in Russia.
He cautioned that Islamic fundamentalism can provide a serious base for the fascist forces.
Deputy Issakov, a leader of the Left-Patriotic Bloc in the Supreme Soviet of Russia urged widening the broad anti-fascist front to include the center forces now in sharp collision with Yeltsin.
General Varrennikov, who led the Victory Parade in Red Square in 1945, warned against the danger of passivity.
Prof A. Sergeyev noted that capitalists with ties to foreign capital, speculative shopkeepers and criminal gangs, constitute a base for fascist forces.
Representatives of the CPs of the Baltic states and Dneister Republic described the development of fascist repression in their countries.
Viktor Chikin, first secretary of the newl-united CP of Belarus, dealt with the profound crisis there resulting in great strikes and demonstrations inspired by the Donetsk miners.
'In many respects our people live no better than under Nazi occupation,' he said.
This first effort at analyzing the specific character of the fascist danger in the former USSR understandably revealed sectarian tendencies toward premature characterizations of fascism.
But, the overall significance of this Anti-Fascism Congress is that it is setting itself the task of uniting all prepared to struggle against dictatorial rule leading to the rise of fascism.
The Congress, attended by 646 delegates from 46 regions, many former Soviet Republics and 22 parties, called for the freedom of all political prisoners in the Baltic states and elsewhere.
Immediate steps are:
To organize Anti-fascist Committees, the holding of an All-Union Veche (great town hall meeting) in Moscow in September and at the same time a Congress of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus to avoid the dissolution of the USSR in December, 1991.
The delegates joined the march of 30,000 to the approaches of Central State TV building where a delegation laid flowers at the spot of the bloody attack on demonstrators protesting Yeltsin's monopoly control, June 22, 1992."
END OF ARTICLE.
However, to end MY post, I thought to remind everyone it seems fine for STATE, GOVERNMENT, TO RESCUE CERTAIN TOO BIG TO FAIL PRIVATE FINANCIAL, ECONOMIC, INDUSTRIAL, ENERGY, INSTITUTIONS, CORPORATIONS, INVESTORS, BUT, THOSE SAME PRIVATE INTERESTS TELL YOU THE GOVERNMENT, STATE, ITSELF, IS TOO BIG, CAN, AND, SHOULD, FAIL while THEY eat at the trough.
Well, THE OTHER WAY AROUND is the ONLY ANSWER.
Our RECIDIVIST CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY PRIVATELY OWNED INDUSTRIAL, ECONOMIC, ENERGY, FINANCIAL, SECTOR MUST SHRINK IN SIZE SO IT/THEY CAN BE FLUSHED DOWN a proverbial TOILET BOWL, WHERE IT/THEY BELONG, while PROPORTIONATELY INCREASING STATE, GOVERNMENT, PUBLIC, COLLECTIVELY OWNED, OPERATED, SECTORS and ECONOMIC PLANNING FOR EVERYONE, NOT a few!!
Our economic, profit driven, private ownership, SYSTEM must be turned upside down or ALL to perish, species extinction, annihilation, not to mention ongoing merciless suffering!!
Saturday, June 17, 2017
I do not post much anymore because I find ALL "news" reported utterly nauseating, disgusting, sickening, repulsive, in the gutter FASCIST DRIVEL, A NATION, GLOBE, OF LIES, A GLOBAL NAZI CARTEL AND RECIDIVIST EMPIRE OF CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, it simply becomes too depressing.
Life being short, there is NOTHING positive, uplifting, about ANY of these developments.
One has only so much limited time, energy, resources, on Planet Earth.
I can't clone myself, much as I might try.
But, I will make an exception at the moment.
Amongst other items, CUBA resounds lately in OUR so-called CRAPPY COMMERCIAL FAKE NEWS, ESTABLISHMENT, MEDIA, INSTITUTIONS, ALL PART OF A VAST NAZI PROPAGANDA MACHINE, GARBAGE, ECHO CHAMBER of revisionist historical whitewash, so, I decided SIMPLY extracting A LITTLE FACTUAL counter information from ONLY 2 WALL ST. JOURNAL, WSJ, articles I happen to retain from 1993 and 1994, respectively, about Cuba, in my personal files.
REMEMBER, THIS EXERCISE IN FUTILITY BEING TEMPLATE, not totally, completely, comprehensive, exhaustive, but, certainly, emblematic of the REAL REASONS, economic motives, behind EVERYTHING happening everywhere.
I can NOT link directly to the articles nor can I reproduce them for this post without going thru an old fashioned effort simply TYPING copy directly on the computer which is very time consuming.
So, FIRST one.
BOLD FACE BEING MY EMPHASIS, NOT IN ARTICLES below:
FROM OCTOBER 21, 1993
BY JOSE DE CORDOBA
"CUBA IS SELLLING WHAT IT USURPED AND ORIGINAL OWNERS ARE FUMING"
Subheading: "US Cables Global Warning to Dissuade Investment in Confiscated Properties"
"Cuba's ...attempts to attract foreign investment are running into flak from the US Government as well as from BACARDI CORP, the rum giant whose first distillery was confiscated by Castro's government in 1960.
Prompted by reports that Cuba is selling or leasing to foreign partners properties confiscated from US companies years ago, the US government sent a cable last month titled 'Buyer Beware,' to all its embassies and consulates.
The cable orders US diplomats worldwide to inform host governments that the US 'strongly urges' them to dissuade their nationals from investing in Cuban properties that could be part of the $1.8 billion in US claims for assets expropriated by the Castro gov't.
TOTAL US CLAIMS OF $5 BILLION
It is the 2nd time the US sent out a warning since 1991.
Cuba has intensified its search for foreign investment after losing subsidies that disappeared with the collapse of its trade ties to the former Soviet bloc...
....Including interest, the US claims are now estimated to total about $5 BILLION.
Cuban officials say that Havana has settled claims made by Spanish, Canadian, Swiss, English and French firms.
They say Havana is ready to negotiate US claims if they are balanced against Cuban claims of economic damage caused by the US trade embargo of the island which Havana estimates at $40 BILLION....
....Meanwhile, Bacardi, which had properties including 3 breweries and a distillery seized by Cuban government is angry over reports that Cuba is searching for joint venture partners for the businesses...
....Bacardi's Cuban properties were worth about $70 million when they were confiscated in 1960...The 3 breweries, which used to produce Hatuey, prerevolutionary Cuba's largest selling beer, are on a list of 131 properties that Cuban officials circulated at a conference on foreign investment in Cuba that was held in CANCUN, MEXICO AND HAVANA LAST JULY.
Mr. Cutillas [chief executive officer of the closely held Bermuda based company] says Bacardi is limiting its efforts to confiscated businesses and would not touch the emotional issue of the return of private residences confiscated by Cuba.
He is a member of the family that founded Bacardi in the city of Santiago de Cuba in 1862. Industry analysts place Bacardi's annual sales at $2.7 BILLION.
Another company, Lone Star Industries, Inc. of Stamford, Conn., is worried that Cemex SA of MEXICO,the 4th largest cement company in the world, might acquire Lone Star's old cement plant in Cuba as part of a debt swap. Lone Star, emerging from a Chapter 11 reorganization, has a $24.9 Million claim for its cement plant registered with the US Foreign Claims Settlement Commission...
...Lone Star Chairman David Wallace....is also Chairman of the Joint Corporate Committee on Cuban Claims, a group formed in 1974 representing about 50 US corporations....
END OF EXCERPTS BUT following addition.
The article ALSO has a CHART which I cannot reproduce exactly, however, here is the information below.
"SOME of the US companies that have filed claims for properties confiscated by Cuba in the MILLIONS:
Boise Cascade $279.3; ITT 130.7; Borden 97.4; United Brands 85.1; Amstar 81; EXXON 71.6; Texaco 50.1; Freeport Minerals 33; Coca-Cola 27.5; Lone Star Industries 24.9; Colgate-Palmolive 14.5; Atlantic Richfield 10.2
ALSO, I note, MORE land issues exist around FORMER LARGE AGRICULTURAL PLANTATIONS, POSSIBLY, SUGAR production, not sure, not to mention exploitation and slavery.
The 2nd WSJ article I will ONLY EXCERPT in SMALL part essentially being a followup to above.
FROM DECEMBER 23, 1994
"GROWING NUMBER OF US COMPANIES PREPARE FOR FUTURE BUSINESS WITH CUBA"
BY MARY ROMANO
"....The US-Cuba Business Council--with a roster that includes American International Group, Anheuser-Busch Cos., Chrysler Corp., Coca-Cola, Colgate Palmolive Co, Dow Chemical and Honeywell--was formed in April to support the embargo until a free-market system is installed in Cuba and to plan for possible renewed access to the Cuban market...
...Cuba lost its main trading partner when the Soviet Union collapsed.
Agricultural production is down and industrial plants are not fully operational.
But, in the first year of a free market economy US trade with Cuba could reach $1 BILLION and after 5 years it could reach $7 BILLION....
END OF BRIEF EXCERPT
Of course, monetary figures above now much higher, INFLATED.

A recent report below/above regarding KRG/IRAQ PEARL PETROLEUM and names involved jarred my memory, piqued my curiosity.
So, I searched my OWN BLOG, which follows in second link below, at the bottom.
It takes very, extremely SMALL, LIMITED, brain power, intellect, to understand WHAT occurs NOW, WHY, here, there, AND, by extension, ELSEWHERE, IF one bothers looking at, following, the interwoven, overlapping, incestuous, but, often, competing, conflicting, PRIVATE FINANCIAL, ECONOMIC, names, threads, INVESTMENT interests, motivating past and current developments, actions.
One need merely extrapolate further with a wee bit more info, like, what "THEY" call "intelligence!"
Use your very, extremely limited, imaginations, intellect, brain power.
An illustrious example follows below.
But, who cares?
First, current report:
Then, MY OWN BLOG from a VERY, VERY, LIMITED, CURSORY, thumbnail, brief, search:

NAZI ROCKEFELLER CITIGROUP/EXXON/MORGAN ZOMBIE KENNEL DOG KISSINGER RETURNS; TRUMP; SELLING OUT & OFF THE US & GLOBE
Who runs latest made for TV US reality democracy carnival show??
NOT MOST CURRENT IDIOT and RESIDENT FRONT MAN TRUMP, FOR SURE.
NOR, OF COURSE, FORMER CIA PUPPET OBOOMA.
Ghoulish zombie apparition and architect of global death and destruction Kissinger appears seated with Trump JUST as Trump fires FBI director, Comey.
What an extraordinary coincidence!
NO good explanation forthcoming.
Maybe they should ask comatose Kissinger, instead.
Of course, Trump's entire Administration involved with the Russian mob, but, SO ARE ALL OTHERS NAMED ABOVE, and, plenty more.
After all, WHO orchestrated a USSR counter-revolution??
Who financed the TALIBAN war in Afghanistan against the USSR and flattened THAT country?
Who created Rosneft??
Certainly NOT Trump.
Our CRAPPY PRIVATE ESTABLISHMENT commercial media along with ALL its many outlets, Democrat sponsored Opposition, NEVER manage to find T-REX, nor, OF COURSE, ANY named above.
But, they can find THEIR impotent, two bit, second tier hustler, sleazebag, whore, pimp, Trump.
As for Trump's pseudo nationalism, ALL PRIVATE INTERESTS ABROAD invited to invest, OWN, everything in this country at rock bottom prices, subsidized by US taxpayers, of course, as ELSEWHERE abroad.
Come on in, yawl, to greatest sucker nation on planet Earth and their BIG BARGAIN BASEMENT SELL OFF AND OUT!
One huge flea market sale!
NO NATIONALISM, NATIONALIZATION!
Forget empty jingoism, jargon, slogans, rhetoric.
JUST THE OPPOSITE.
Big ruckus HERE about energy fracking, environment, pipelines, coal, oil, gas.
Lots of noise made.
Well, LNG EXPORT is at the CRUX of THEIR investment policies and NOBODY HERE OR ABROAD organizes ANYTHING AGAINST THAT MONSTROSITY!
NO demand FOR CHANGED OWNERSHIP from so-called PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP.
Not even 51% public REVENUES, not to mention COMPLETE nationalization.
NADA, ZERO, ZILCH.
OFF THE AGENDA, NOT FOR DISCUSSION OR ACTION!
It is not possible to export electricity abroad, via boat, water, pipeline, or, they would.
It's not possible, either, to export solar energy via boat, pipeline, or, they would.
And, so forth.
So, LNG it is!
That's it, pure and simple.
Coal, maybe, but, more likely, for domestic purposes.
Oil, of course, exported everywhere.
They just need SOMETHING more exotic to sell!
The more toxic AND capital intensive, the better!
How about tulips, instead?
Remember Holland in days gone by, 1600s.
A big tulip bubble explosion (*SEE link below).
Meanwhile, the US continues receiving, purchasing, GARBAGE Chinese products sold in equally miserable retailers like Walmart and Amazon as well as industrialized GARBAGE agricultural produce from now economically decimated Mexico.
Our agricultural polices another discussion.
ALL STINK, not to mention slave labor, natural resources, energy, etc., expended producing, transporting, distributing, all this GARBAGE, ELECTRONIC as well.
But, hey, folks, let the bell of Free and PRIVATE Enterprise ring out loud and clear!!
*UNFAMILIAR WITH TULIP HISTORY & HOLLAND:

SHOCK & AWE: NAZI TREX EJACULATES TWICE COSTING US TAXPAYERS BILLIONS & CORPORATE TAX WELFARE BUT NO CHANGED OWNERSHIP!
Bona Fide NAZI lineage ROCKEFELLER CITIGROUP/EXXON/MORGAN MOST CURRENT FILTHY, CARNIVOROUS, TREX TRUMP Administration demonstrates his/their military hardware, prowess, twice in one week at ENORMOUS US TAXPAYER cost!
Anyway, the boys with the toys are asses.
HERE very few people give a damn about North Korea which the US attacked in the 1950s and South Korea in which the US installed a BRUTAL CIA DICTATORSHIP!
All of it being OBVIOUS SHAM, SABER RATTLING, FAKE NEWS, like CHINA, which has become one large toxic parking lot and garbage dump with TONS of slave labor transporting THEIR GARBAGE products across the seas into places like Amazon and Walmart.
People here are too busy, preoccupied, SURVIVING, or, trying to survive multiple economic tsunamis created by THOSE above to worry about North Korea.
We have unemployed, underemployed, homeless, poverty stricken, declasse, impoverished, exploited, overworked, underpaid, working class, POVERTY TERRORISM, debt burdened students, credit card debt, national debt, medical debt, you name it, an intentionally INVISIBLE ARMY.
As a minor aside, reminder, whatever happened NOT to Baby Jane BUT Hillary Clinton's e-mails which snake oil salesman, two bit fleabag hustler, Trump trumpeted so much during his campaign??
Along with all else, Clinton's emails disappeared in CURRENT NAZI ROCKEFELLER CITIGROUP/EXXON/MORGAN T-REX ADMINISTRATIVE SWIRLING BLACK HOLE VORTEX.
Now, as for latest PRIVATE CORPORATE TAX WELFARE proposal by our MOST CURRENT ANAL RETENTIVE, IN YOUR FACE, REPULSIVE, REPTILIAN, PARASITICAL, PIRANHA, RECIDIVIST CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, TREX TRUMP ADMINISTRATION,
I make the following counter offer, proposal, SOLUTION, like Single Payer Health Care, OFF THE TABLE:
NO corporate tax, instead, PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP WITH MINIMUM 51% STATE OWNERSHIP, INCOME REVENUE SHARING, STATE AND LABOR DECISION MAKING, INCLUDING ALLOCATION OF RESOURCES, CIVIL SERVICE JOBS, AND, more.
How's that for DEAL MAKING??
Put it in your peace pipe and smoke it.
It SHOULD be 100% state owned, prosecution, liquidation, appropriation of assets, CHARGES of GRAND LARCENY, THEFT of BIBLICAL MAGNITUDE, RECIDIVIST HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS AGAINST HUMANITY.
I am more than very, very, generous proposing ANY partnership at all!
But, of course, HERE, in the world's GREATEST STUPID, IDIOT, SUCKER, BRAINWASHED, DUMB, NATION, they, our NAZI PARTNERED AFL-CIA/SEIU, demand NOTHING, NOTHING AT ALL, instead, told to grovel and be happy the ILL GOTTEN GAINS OF PRIVATE CAPITAL to be repatriated HERE!!??
That's THEIR idea of DEAL MAKING??
By the way, as another reminder, anyone remember former VP Dick Cheney of oil giant HALLIBURTON fame and ALL government cash flowing into THEIR pockets and OTHERS, LIKE, THEIR IRAN SURROGATES IN IRAQ??
OWNERSHIP THE ONLY ANSWER!
Too big to fail MUST be prosecuted, LIQUIDATED, their ASSETS SEIZED!
NO TAX SUBSIDIES FOR PRIVATE CAPITAL IN ANY WAY, FORM, SHAPE, REPRESENTING CORPORATE WELFARE, ENTITLEMENTS, STIMULUS, QE, SOCIALIZED DEBT, PRIVATIZED PROFIT, in another form!
NADA, ZERO, ZIP!
Collectively, here and abroad, WE pay MANY TIMES OVER for PRIVATE CAPITAL assets THEY seized from the US and abroad thru MURDER, WAR, LABOR EXPLOITATION, coups, assassinations, etc.
NO ADDED VALUE CREATED MERELY SUPPLYING MONEY.
ONLY those who LABOR create ADDED USE VALUE.
Without them, nothing happens.
This most certainly extends to industries like the internet, COMPUTERS, SOFTWARE, HARDWARE, CREATED BY PUBLIC, taxpayer, FUNDS NEVER intended for vast CRAPPY COMMERCIAL APPLICATION, USURPED BY PRIVATE CORPORATIONS LIKE NAZI IBM, MICROSOFT, PRIVATE DELIVERY SYSTEMS, PARIAHS, BEHEMOTHS, MONOPOLIES, PHONE AND CABLE COMPANIES VERIZON, COMCAST offering absolutely NO security but the illusion of it and a burgeoning NATIONAL INSECURITY STATE industrial apparatus!!
Meanwhile, garbage ghost ships crisscross oceans dumping CHINA TRASH products on US shores, and, as well, TRASH exists on the internet, TV, phones, a vast electronic media, a totally TRASHED, intellectually, physically, polluted, toxic, environment, including schools, education, food, you name it.
Human life has NO value HERE, despite meaningless, cynical, hypocritical, empty, rhetoric, shibboleths.
NO YOUNG PIONEERS EXIST TODAY, certainly NOT HERE, or, anywhere else in the world NOW!

France, in the news PROMINENTLY, once again, I thought SIMPLY to link to an earlier post I did.

Below, another one hour lecture video LINK more or less on subject matter above.
By definition, an hour presentation can NOT be HISTORICALLY COMPREHENSIVE, nonetheless, a very GOOD, nice, simplified, SYSTEMIC analysis, in a nutshell, basically, representing one big Ponzi scheme.
Not contained within a simplified one hour lecture are ALL the complicated, internecine, overlapping, HISTORICAL, CRIMINAL, external factors, context, mentioned on MY many posts, background, our major and minor corporations, private interests, people, investors, before and after WWII, THEIR NAZI support, policies, counter-revolution, coups, wars, Murder, Inc., drug monies, offshore tax havens, CIA/NSA, labor union participation, and, so on.
However, I do NOT want to diminish the elegant simplicity of his talk, lecture.
Just one more caveat, however.
POST WWII Union, AFL-CIA/SEIU, pension monies INVESTED into PRIVATE capital are THE MAJOR factor in reactionary, compromised, US politics, which I indicate over and over.
Thus, are they MARRIED, mortgaged, together after infamous codification of a 1947 US Congressional TAFT-HARTLEY SLAVE LABOR LAW, and, of course, its parent, 1947 NSA.
I do NOT have precise NUMBERS, FACTS, at my fingertips, but, with only a very few CURSORY searches suffice it to say LOW estimates of US PENSION FUND MONIES PRIVATELY INVESTED range from MANY BILLIONS to MANY TRILLIONS, with a T!
The HIGH end being most likely, but, give or take either way.
My point being, this does NOT represent small change.
These are SIGNIFICANT money flows, a BIG, GIANT, chunk of change ALSO subsidizing PRIVATE CAPITAL MARKETS!
And, of course, government, municipal, state, federal, local, civil service employee pension funds, (ALL SERVICE INDUSTRIES since our industrial, manufacturing, energy, natural resource, base is NOT COLLECTIVELY, STATE, OWNED) have an unusual distinction, unlike PRIVATE industry, guaranteed by TAXPAYER monies despite the fact THEY invest in CASINO CAPITALISM STOCK MARKET gambling corporations and exotic flavored financial instruments to generate income, profit.
As usual, tho, as THE payer of last resort, a very LIMITED government pension fund liability system does exist to help offset PRIVATE bankrupt capital pension funds, but, with very, very, significant decrease, haircut, in those obligations.
I do NOT know how it functions, precisely, but, rest assured, it is NOT comprehensive.
Somehow, however, civil service employees, which, lest one forget, include career politicians, do NOT get pension obligation haircuts when THEIR SYSTEM GOES BANKRUPT, BELLY UP, thanks to PRIVATE INVESTMENTS!
Thus, SOME, a significant portion, of Municipal, County, Local, State and/or Federal TAX increase actually goes NOT to increase government services BUT to subsidize PENSION FUND DEBT, LIABILITIES, offsetting THEIR PRIVATE CAPITAL losses, reflecting our SICK GOVERNMENT PRIVATE INSURANCE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, I.E., OBOOMA DOES NOT CARE.
THESE POLICIES MUST STOP!!
Our unions, AFL-CIA/SEIU, ARE AND MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CRIMINAL COLLABORATION, PARTICIPATION!
THIS MONEY SHOULD, COULD AND MUST, INSTEAD, FLOW INTO A NASCENT, already existing, NON-PROFIT, NATIONAL, LIMITED GOVERNMENT PENSION, INSURANCE, SYSTEM CALLED SOCIAL SECURITY, named appropriately representing what it can and SHOULD accomplish, i.e., SOCIAL SECURITY, as opposed to INSECURITY, INSTEAD OF ABOVE AND BELOW!
This MARRIAGE between LABOR and PRIVATE CAPITAL represents a HUMONGOUS conflict of interest to change, or, NOTHING to change FOR THE BETTER, just grow worse and worse, a downward spiral!:
Now, as afterthought, postscript, a word about the international front.
I do not bother with the OBVIOUSLY LAME, TRANSPARENT, RIDICULOUS, excuses for TRex's recent DEMONSTRATION of military muscle, POWER.
Their reasoning being comical, dark humor.
What is NOT comical, however, is that which I promised ALL along, namely, IRAN!
Just like above regarding nominal LABOR UNIONS, EVERYONE who did and STILL can NOT find NAZI IRAN IN OCCUPIED IRAQ, EXTENDING FURTHER THRUOUT THE MIDEAST NOW, ARE AS RESPONSIBLE AS OUR NAZI INSTITUTIONS, FOR THEIR UNPRINCIPLED COLLABORATION.
ALL, EVERYONE, FALL DOWN TOGETHER PARTNERED WITH BLATANT APPEASEMENT POLICIES.
NO such thing exists as a JEWISH state, i.e., ZIONISM, ISRAEL.
Equally, NO such thing as an ISLAMIC state, ISLAMIC FINANCE, exists!
The Muslim Brotherhood, Taliban, etc.
How many angels dance on the head of a pin??
Accept one, accept the other.
Once accepting a HOSTILE NAZI IRAN ARAB IRAQ OCCUPATION, ANNEXATION, WAR, extending now further on to the GREATER MIDEAST and beyond, then, you have opened a cesspool for EVERYONE, a cul-de-sac, point of NO return!
EVERYONE SUCKED INTO A SWIRLING ISLAMIC VORTEX!
So, I am NOT interested in FAKE outcries, laments, protests, about what is ANOTHER OBVIOUS pretext, fig leaf, chapter, in a NOT SO GREAT, GRAND, PATHETIC, ARCHAIC, SORDID, GAME!
