The Manifest of the American People for the 21st century.

Like: “The Entire Americana continent must be in the control and hegemony of the USA”

Posted on September 28, 2008

We all know by now that the September 11, 2001 attack on the Twin Towers and its consequences in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Muslim World in general were the events of the decade. 

We do feel deep in our guts that the fall of Wall Street and its consequences would be the events of the century.  The fall of the last bastion of unbridled capitalism is shaking the World economy and sending strong Tsunami waves to the global finance and investment institutions all around. 

The US Federal government is nationalizing the major banks, the foundation and symbol of greedy capitalism. 

For the time being, the Federal government has bailed out AIG and then nationalized banks, like for example Goldman & Sacks and G.P. Morgan who have the task of purchasing the remaining failing financial institutions. 

Since when the two relatively puny latter institutions could purchase Washington Mutual and other giants for a nickel?  What organizations are behind Goldman & Sacks and G.P. Morgan to obtain formal nomination of the US Federal government for the nationalization process?  

It is well documented that minor cataclysms generate abundance of investigation and public coverage, but the coverage of seismic cataclysms that are financial in nature are relegated to professional manuscripts that the general public would not touch with a long pole. 

Did anyone read any serious coverage of the financial repercussions of the September 11 nightmare?  

Quickly a war plan was set up and the people galvanized against an “Evil” enemy and then the financial problems were swept under the rug.  

Or do you know of the causes of the bankruptcy of the energy giant ENRON?  If anyone comprehend the causes of the fall of Wall Street. then please disseminate your knowledge profusely and immediately, in words understood by the common people. 

One hint though; follows the money trails and you will catch the head criminals. 

Astute Warren Buffet has already invested 5 billions in Goldman & Sacks or 10% of the shares; thus, this is a strong lead to follow. 

The most direct way for grabbing significant threads is by investigating Vice President Cheney and his inner circle: they were fundamentally following orders of the malefic financial giant organizations behind the turmoils of this decade.

I wonder though why the fall of Wall St. happened when the last bastions of communism definitely shifted gears to participate in the new world economic order! 

The fall of Wall Street should have taken place shortly after September 11. 

The invasion of poor Afghanistan was not credible to infuse over 4 trillion dollars into the already failing financial institutions in the USA, through fraud and the scapegoat of a major war against “terrorism”.

The Bush Administration and the behind the scene nefarious financial organizations needed to invade rich Iraq and blackmail the neighboring tiny Arab Emirate States to redirect the swindle on the largest scale through front re-construction companies such as Bechtel and Halliburton and others private security companies. 

The pre-emptive war on Iraqis could not cost that much money and certainly the Iraqi people didn’t notice any beneficial change in their daily lives for six years but they are much worse everyday. 

This gimmick of infusing another 700 billion dollars from the US citizens taxes is basically one of the last payments of the Federal government to the financial mega mafias. 

For a year, those malefic financial mafias might lay low to ride off the catastrophe on the US people and then the same cohabitation and capitalist schemes will resume under laws cribbled with loopholes as large as elephants.

They say that everything is politics; Not in capitalist systems where political structures are fundamentally legal front for the mega financial mafias to bleed dry the citizens.

I urge the US citizens not to wait and see!  If you do not do your homework now and before the 700 billions are issued and then actively revisite your political structures, then the same cycle would recur at a nastier magnitude.

Many contradictory economics school of sciences that earned Nobel Prices such as the School of Chicago, the School of Vienna and even Amartya Sen tried to interpret a few of Smith’s economic principles and his metaphor of the invisible hand.

Capitalists have usurp Adam Smith’s economic principles as their system guideline to cheat their countrymen. 

Let us revisit briefly Adam Smith who published in 1776 “Investigation on the nature and causes of the wealth of Nations”

He stated that individuals have the tendencies to invest whatever capital they own within the areas of their residence so that they could have better control over their business because they are aware of the people they can trust and the environment that can use their skills and products and the functioning of the legal system.

This process of increasing the added value of their businesses in the local commerce or inner commerce is like “an invisible hand” at work for increasing the wealth of the whole economy. 

When the State risks to orient or guide an individual or moms and pops family businesses in the manner of investing his capital, it is meddling in pointless exercises since the investor is better positioned to know the kinds of activities he is fit to undertake. 

Smith relied heavily on the liberal scientific economic principles of the French School of the Physiocrats and then three economic revolutions carried his manuscript as their Bible. Mainly, the French Revolution in the political debates, the industrial revolution seeking justifications for their capitalist system and lastly the scientific revolution.

Smith warned against freight commerce where the capital of an investor is divided among foreign countries and never under his control (does the stock market correspond to freight commerce?).

Thus, a businessman prefers to deal within the inner commerce over external commerce and by far over freight commerce. 

How Smith’s explanations for a strong economy could ever be matched with the principles of these mega businesses that nobody even know the behind the scene power manipulators?

Maybe the climatic changes would usurp the rank of the fall of Wall Street for dire consequences in the decade after the fall of Wall Street and maybe the decision of the next US administration to lead the environmental remedies in a political gimmick to redirecting the attention of its public away from this major handicap might generate the necessary good will for behavioral change and away from this “stupid increase of consumerism growth” ideology.

Are you hopeful that the temporary fall of greedy capitalism might enhance a revival for the environment?  Don’t count on it. 

Only a serious movement to restructure the actual US political system with serious independent institutions to control, monitor and investigate the so-called check and balance porous institutions might offer a glimpse to the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Once this mass movement is on the march then the rest of the world will back it with all its might to save this one Earth and its 8 billions inhabitants.

I sincerely expect the Chinese people, the huge continents of India, Brazil, Russia and the European Union to get the message of the pitfalls of an uncontrolled capitalist system and sever the cozy relations between their political structure and financial institutions.

It’s two-party presidential campaign, stupid!

Posted in April 20, 2012

Three years ago, the Tea Party seemed to be everywhere in the psychic of the US society. This party kept criticizing Obama policies for supporting multinational financial institutions, expanding the Federal government spending, failing to deal with budget deficit…and went too far into exhibiting racist tendencies.

(I guess this party resurfaced during the Trump candidacy to the President but failed to confront the multinational financial institutions recurring crisis)

The Tea Party was the spearhead into bringing back the Republicans as majority into the House of representatives. It’s “authority figures” were represented by Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio and Randal Paul…As the Republican regained majority in the House, the Tea Party receded into oblivion…and since then, the Republican Party maintained a sizeable distance with the Tea Party programs…

The same phenomenon occurred with the Occupy Wall Street movement that protested against Multinational financial corporations resuming their old habit of doing business, not paying the proper taxes, and bringing the country back to another recession…

In this presidential campaign, the Republican Party is in no mood to suffer moderates, and is proposing radical right programs: Senator Mark Rubio and South Carolina governor joined Mitt Romney…

The Democrats do not suffer conservative tendencies in its ranks.

And the struggle will be fierce during election time, to revert back to continuing “old-time well oiled” US policies as usual, of maintaining the 1%  richest citizens grabbing 40% of national wealth, and consciously keeping 20% of the population under poverty level, no matter what

Note 2: Do you feel that the analysis done in 2012 has changed in any minor way? If it were Not for the Covid-19 fiasco and the clownish behaviors of Trump, we would Not have had a reversal in this current election

Rafah, Gaza. Dead children kept in vegetable refrigerators

Posted on August 3, 2014

Note: Before this butchery, Rafah witnessed a prior butchery in 1956 as Israel participated in the invasion of the Suez canal. Israel army crossed Rafah and committed crimes against humanity: over 60 civilians were exterminated.

As Gaza stranglehold tightens, full morgues have forced people to store dead bodies in refrigerators

Abu Taha, a farmer in Rafah, opened the refrigerator he normally keeps his potatoes and carrots in.

In it were the corpses of children, young men and women lying on top of one another, soaked in blood.

Many were impossible to identify and only a few have been placed in white burial shrouds.

Such was the savagery of Israel’s bombardment in Rafah, such was the quantity of dead bodies, that there was simply no other option but to use vegetable refrigerators as makeshift morgues.

The closure of hospitals which came under bombardment led to a cascade of corpses. It started when medical staff were forced to abandon Rafah’s main hospital Abu Yousef al-Najjar which came under constant bombardment by artillery shelling from the east of the city.

They evacuated the injured to Kuwaiti Hospital, a facility totally ill-equipped to deal with major trauma injuries from the extended battlefield that the Gaza Strip has become.

Even so, several bodies were left lying on the roads, bleeding for hours without any ambulance crew arriving to rescue them.

Meanwhile, three ambulance crew members have been killed, their bodies were unidentifiable after they were hit by an Israeli tank shell directed at their ambulance.

Several of the cases close to the hospital gate were not reachable by rescue teams, says Abu Ahmed, an ambulance driver. 

Each time I drive through, tank shells are fired nearby,” he says while he is a couple of hundred meters from tens of victims bleeding on the road.

Most cases of those killed in Rafah are civilians slain by canon shells that wiped several homes in Hay al-Junina area.

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes fired missiles on several homes in Rafah targeting homes of Abu Suliman, Zorb, Alshaer, and Abu Suliman. 

The death toll in Rafah in the past 24 hours is now 110 killed and hundreds injured.  Medics say there are more bodies they could not reach.

The corpses were taken into vegetables refrigerators in Rafah, which have their own electricity generators. 

Even burying the dead was full of hazard, as the cemeteries in the east of the city have also been under Israeli artillery shelling over the past 24 days.

“We had no option but to put the bodies of tens killed in the refrigerators,” Subhi Radwan, mayor of Rafah told MEE.

Al-Nujjar hospital has only enough beds for a few dozen patients, but evacuation has meant nowhere else to go for victims of the attack.

Radwan says, the war on Rafah is not over, and his staff members are unable to offer any facilities to people on the ground, that includes water and electricity lines which were destroyed by strikes.

“We appeal to the international organizations to step in and help us evacuate injured people lying in the east of Rafah,” he says.

Meanwhile, international groups have tried to help evacuate victims, but to no avail.

Survivors of the 24-hour bombardment said they had seen nothing like it in their lives. They were bombed from the air, sea and ground simultaneously.

“It is terrifying, the Israeli military has gone out of control, they bombed a building of families fleeing and killed 23 innocents,” says Abdelraouf Ayyad, a 33-year old whose home he fled in Hay al-Junina when bombing started 24 hours ago.

“No one is safe; no home, no hospital, no shelter” he says as he runs into Tal al-Sultan to seek shelter at his cousin’s house.

Twenty three (23) family members have been killed by Israeli F16 missile, mostly from families that fled bombing in east of the city to the West of Rafah.

Radwan says, there is no other hospital, and now even the Kuwaiti hospital is under canonfire—journalists and rescue teams were forced to leave the area under gunfire.

Ashraf Al Qudra of health ministry appeals to the international community to allow ambulances to evacuate injured people from roads of East of Rafah and Kuwaiti hospital.

“We need safe routes for ambulance to evacuate victims into other hospitals in Khan Younis.”

Israeli tanks could be seen in the east, overlooking Rafah, home of 180,000 inhabitants in the far south border with Egypt.

“There are tens of cases of people bleeding and the hospital is unable to deal with massive number of victims”

Rafah’s massacre occurred two hours into the 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire announced yesterday.

Hamas and Israel exchanged accusations of breaking the ceasefire. However, Israel insisted on carrying out a military ground operation on the eastern border, despite the truce.

Israel announced one missing soldier during its ground invasion, while Hamas’s al-Qassam Brigades say they lost communication with some of their members who were in combat with Israeli troops before the ceasefire started.

Qassam Brigades said in a statement that the Israeli soldier was probably killed during in ambush along with Qassam Brigades members.

The death toll across the Gaza strip is 1680 dead and 8500 injured since the war began 27 days ago – the majority are civilians according to the UN.

Meanwhile, 3 civilians and 50 Israeli soldiers have been killed during the ground attack in Gaza.

Palestinian factions and Israel were expected to travel to Cairo for talks with Egyptian on a long-lasting truce, but the presence of Israeli tanks around the Rafah Crossing point will make this unlikely to happen anytime soon.
