Dictatorship USA – Part 3

The Snowden Revelations


In 2013 Edward Snowden uncovered the incredibly massive and constant world-wide spying operations of the US National Security Agency (NSA). The NSA is only one of several components – including the CIA and the FBI – of the even more massive United States “intelligence community,” better described as the monstrous United States “lie, spy, criminal, provocation, subversion and regime change, terror, drug-runnning, torture, war and mass murder apparatus.”


Let us review the known operations of the NSA.


«Nothing appears to be too small for the NSA. Nothing too trivial. Rivals, enemies, allies and friends – US citizens and 'non-Americans' – are all scooped up.


“The documents show the NSA, intent on exploiting the communications revolution to the full, developing ever more intrusive programmes in pursuit of its ambition to have surveillance cover of the whole planet: total command of what the NSA refers to as the 'digital battlefield'...

'When the NSA, the CIA and other parts of the intelligence community spied illegally on American anti-war protesters, civil rights leaders and trade unionists in the 1970s, there was at least certain technical limitation of their actions. The difference today is that technological revolution allows them to spy on almost everyone.” (“Portrait of the NSA: no detail too small in quest for total surveillance”, The Observer Nov. 2, 2013)

“From thousands of classified documents, the National Security Agency emerges as an electronic omnivore of staggering capabilities, eavesdropping and hacking its way around the world to strip governments and other targets of their secrets, all the while enforcing the utmost secrecy about its own operations. It spies routinely on friends as well as foes...

“The N.S.A. seems to be listening everywhere in the world, gathering every stray electron that might add, however minutely, to the United States government’s knowledge of the world... It sucks the contents from fiber-optic cables, sits on telephone switches and Internet hubs, digitally burglarizes laptops and plants bugs on smartphones around the globe...

“The agency’s Dishfire database stores years of text messages from around the world, just in case. Its Tracfin collection accumulates gigabytes of credit card purchases. The fellow pretending to send a text message at an Internet cafe in Jordan may be using an N.S.A. technique code-named Polarbreeze to tap into nearby computers. The Russian businessman who is socially active on the web might just become food for Snacks, the acronym-mad agency’s Social Network Analysis Collaboration Knowledge Services...

“Pressure to Get Everything... the agency expanded and decentralized far beyond its Fort Meade headquarters in Maryland, building or expanding major facilities in Georgia, Texas, Colorado, Hawaii, Alaska, Washington State and Utah. Its officers also operate out of major overseas stations in England, Australia, South Korea and Japan, at overseas military bases, and from locked rooms housing the Special Collection Service inside American missions abroad.

“The agency, using a combination of jawboning, stealth and legal force, has turned the nation’s Internet and telecommunications companies into collection partners, installing filters in their facilities, serving them with court orders, building back doors into their software and acquiring keys to break their encryption...

“WINDOWS WITH VIEWS ON EVERYTHING. Venezuela, for instance, was one of six “enduring targets” in N.S.A.’s official mission list from 2007, along with China, North Korea, Iraq, Iran and Russia.” (No Morsel Too Minuscule for All-Consuming N.S.A., New York Times Nov 2, 2013)

Startling Surge in Youth, Latino Homelessness

Conterpunch, June 20, 2017

On any given night in Los Angeles County, 55,188 humans are living in a state of homelessness.

The latest data from the countywide1 homeless count by the Los Angeles Continuum of Care, released just last week, shows a startling uptick: homelessness overall risen by 23% across the county—that’s 10,920 additional human lives added to the fringe.

Perhaps more alarming are the disproportionate affects on the Latino community and under-18 youth: nearly 7,000 of those folks are Latino, accounting for a 63% increase over last year, and nearly 1,500 of these people are under the age of 18, a 41% increase.

Successes remain limited compared to the surge in homelessness. Take, for example, the fact that over 14,000 people transitioned into permanent housing over the course of 2016—that’s a 30% increase over 2015 and a 61% increase over 2014. But with staggering increases in other areas, such as the 18- to 24-year-old population that saw a 64% increase in homelessness.

In fact, nearly every single population saw an increase in homelessness in 2016: families (up 29%), veterans (up 57%), seniors (up 30%), youth (up41%), and young adults (up 64%). Pair this with an alarming increase in folks with HIV/AIDS experiencing homelessness (up 67%) and those with severe mental illnesses also experiencing homelessness (up 13%), and one can feel a sense of hopelessness.

The main culprit of the surge? Affordability.

Latinos account for not only a large portion of the population but experience high levels of poverty, because households often consist of individuals working multiple low-paying jobs.

If work gets cut for any given reason, those small slivers of pay lost are devastating to a family or individual in a place that experiences some of the highest rent hikes in the nation.

"Risk Of A Big War Is Rising" Due To "Washington's Dangerous Cult Of Credibility"


TheLibertarianInstitute, June 21, 2017


Russia will not back down, and neither will its Syrian and Iranian allies on the ground, says a former White House insider.

After the dramatic downing of a Syrian Air Force jet over Raqqa province by a US Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet on Monday, a former senior national security advisor to the Obama administration, Colin Kahl, warns that the Washington “cult of credibility” will lead the United States into “quagmire” and “further up the escalation ladder in Syria.”

Kahl’s statement confirms a hawkish Washington national security culture which dangerously places credibility and political careerism over genuine US interests and defense.


Here is Kahl’s statement: «The cult of credibility is as popular in DC as it is dangerous. Watch Syria.
 
«The risk of sliding into a big war is rising. For years, hawks have argued that Assad & Iran (& Russia after 2015) were essentially paper tigers in Syria. The Axis of Assad could be backed down & easily deterred if the US just showed some muscle. A few threats, strikes, no-fly zones. Voila! Consider what Team Trump has now: Retaliated vs Assad for CW, Bombed Iranian-backed militia 3 times, Shot down an Iranian-made drone, Downed Syria jet.
 
«Yet the regime/Iran/Russia haven’t backed down. They haven’t been cowed & deterred. Why? Because the terrain they are fighting over, & the US coalition is now operating near, is very important. The days of the ISIS campaign happening in strategically marginal parts of Syria are over.
 
«The asymmetry of stakes means incremental escalation by US side isn’t enough. It encourages the other side to get more assertive. So we down a plane; Russ threatens our planes. We push toward areas in the east the regime covets; Iranian militia & missile strikes surge.
 
«That puts the onus back on the Trump administration to go further up the escalation ladder. Hawks at the NSC will argue US credibility has now been engaged, so they keep punching.
 
«So we down more Syrian planes, kill more Iranian proxies & maybe some Hezbollah & IRGC commanders if we’re lucky. Iran retaliates against our exposed forces in Iraq while the Russians & regime play chicken with us near Raqqa.
 
«So we have to get tougher still. More retaliatory strikes (maybe into Iran this time!), more US assets & troops for 'force protection.' That is the path to quagmire, a possible clash w/Russia & the war w/Iran some in Trump’s administration (& outside think tanks) want.»

The US already has enmeshed itself in the Syrian quagmire (and was even a driving force of bloodshed and the further Balkanization of the country) when it took up sponsorship of the armed opposition very early in the conflict (through both political support and covert military aid), and this happened under Obama, who as early as August 2011 declared Assad must go.

The covert program that began with weapons shipments ended with literal boots on the ground under Barak.

The US was already very far up the "escalation ladder” the moment it invested itself to the point of having to defend its assets on the ground (whether US-backed fighters, logistical infrastructure, or special forces operating bases).

This is the Obama legacy in Syria inherited by Team Trump: the covert war which is increasingly going overt.

Pregnant Black Woman Killed After Calling Police


TheRoot, June 20, 2017


Two white Seattle law-enforcement officers opened fire on a pregnant, black mother of four Sunday morning, killing the 30-year-old in front of her children after she called police to report a burglary.

Charleena Lyles was living in transitional housing for homeless families in Seattle, according to the Seattle Patch, when she dialed 911 to report an attempted burglary.

KIRO7 News reports that the police officers knew Lyles, so they sent two police officers because they were “concerned for their safety”— considering the “threat” of the undersized, petite woman whom family members called “tiny” and said “weighs, like, nothing soaking wet.”


Seattle police have released audio of the police shooting that ended with Charleena Lyles dead in front of her children.

The recording reveals that officers were aware that children might be in the home before they opened fire in the apartment.

Lyles allows officers to enter, and she explains the break-in to the cops. The children can be heard in the background as she answers questions. The conversation seems civil as she lists the items missing, and then the officers yell “Get back!” approximately 11 seconds before gunshots are heard.

The police have issued few details, but we can predict exactly what will happen next:

1. Seattle police officers will smear the victim with menacing photographs and release her criminal history.
2. The officers will be placed on paid leave, meaning that taxpayers will continue to give them full pay even though they are not working (referred to by many, including some dictionaries, as “vacation”).
3. The officers will meet with police-union officials and create a story that revolves around how they “feared for their life.”
4. There will be a march, a community vigil and a hashtag.
5. The police who shot her will never serve a day in jail.

Yes. The two officers—an 11-year veteran and a “newer” officer—have been placed on paid leave.

FBI Sham Organizations


In our book “Silent Terror” (One family's history of political persecution in the United States) https://arnoldlockshin.wordpress.com/, I wrote the following:


“FBI-selected leaders and organizations


“Psychological warfare attacks against individuals go beyond destroying certain leaders and organizations. FBI-selected and trained shams can be put in their place. The 'grander mission' of the campaign against (Martin Luther) King was to put in place a 'leader' chosen by the FBI. According to FBI memos, after a successful campaign to destroy King: 'then the right kind of a national Negro leader could at this time be gradually developed so as to overshadow Dr. King and be in the position to assume the role of the leadership of the Negro people.'


“This 'leader' undoubtedly would arrive on the scene with a well-trained supporting cast of FBI accomplices. As the CIA establishes front organizations for its international operations, the FBI does the same at home. The U.S. Department of Justice stated that COINTELPRO (FBI program of disruptive and murderous operations) included 'establishing sham organizations for disruptive purposes.' In order to misdirect, confuse and subvert genuine progressive efforts, the FBI has invaded and overwhelmed legitimate organizations.


“More importantly, the U.S. Intelligence apparatus sets up fake protest and 'revolutionary' organizations, replete with money, leaflets, placards and newspapers. An honest person joining such a group faces a treacherous road. He can be easiy tracked, and his ideals may be shaken by the disheartening or provocative behavior of his presumed comrades in struggle. Even worse, these very people are apt to be among the most malignant FBI or CIA accomplices operating against the unsuspecting and likely inexperienced victim.


“If a bevy of FBI-controlled 'leaders' and organizations were in place, it is not hard to imagine how damaging this would be for the sustained development of genuine mass movements in the U.S. Broadly developed progressive thinking, which is closely linked to these struggles, would also suffer greatly. This situation combined with the artful and characteristically silent destruction of honest activists would spell grave difficulties for a basic challenge to the policies of America's ruling class.


“Martin Luther King was targeted by the FBI and murdered precisely because he was a potent mass leader for progressive change. To judge progressive and radical movements and leaders in the United States, it is crucial to examine them with complete objectivity. How earnestly and successfully they work towards building on-going, powerful movements of mass struggle is decisively important.” (p. 79-80)

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

These conclusions were not only based on theoretical considerations, as important as they are. I also wrote:


“In 1969... the Vietnam war continued to rage and I became the state organizer in Ohio for the Communist Party (USA)... In the fall of 1972, we moved to Los Angeles, where I became Southern California organizer of the Party... It was at this time we realized we were targeted for heavy FBI harassment... Harassment took a sharp turn for the worse, and we decided it would be best for me to concentrate on science... This signified no change in political conviction, but was based on the realities we faced.” (p. 19-20)

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The main realitу staring me in the face was the fact that the so-called “Communist Party USA” was entirely a sham FBI organization! True, I could not have known every single “CP” member in the country, but I knew every single one in New England, Ohio and Southern California plus many others around the country. Fakes, fakes, fakes.


As for the “leadership” of the so-called “Communist Party USA,” every single one – without exception – was a bought-and-paid-for stooge of the US secret political police. Although it took me considerable time to come to this realization, it was not so difficult to ascertain as it might seem. Instead of any meaningful political action, the Party “leadership” held meetings after meetings, meetings about meetings, and meetings about meetings about meetings. I, of course, had to attend these affairs, and – with time and a growing understanding of what was taking place - I learned all I needed to know about my “comrades.”


“Silent Terror” was written during the Gorbachev “perestroika” period, when, as we now know, the Soviet Union was led - to its destruction - by a CIA conspiracy (with the critical connivance of the phony “communist” KGB!). At that time (1987) the “Communist Party USA” was formally a “fraternal” party of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.


I could not then write all that I knew.

Israel Has Been Secretly Funding Syrian Rebels For Years

ZeroHedge, June 19, 2017


Together with Turkey and the United States, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been major sponsors of the insurgency, arming an array of groups that have been fighting to topple Syria's Iran-backed president.

A key piece of data, one which was just revealed by the Wall Street Journal and which many had suspected: Israel and Saudi Arabia have been alligned from the onset of the Syrian conflict, "with Israel supplying Syrian rebels near its border with cash as well as food, fuel and medical supplies for years, a secret engagement in the enemy country’s civil war aimed at carving out a buffer zone populated by friendly forces."

The Israeli army is in regular communication with rebel groups and its assistance includes undisclosed payments to commanders that help pay salaries of fighters and buy ammunition and weapons, according to interviews with about half a dozen Syrian fighters. Israel has established a military unit that oversees the support in Syria—a country that it has been in a state of war with for decades—and set aside a specific budget for the aid,

It was well known that Israel has provided medical help for Syrian civilians and fighters inside its own borders in the past, with the IDF retaliating to occasional stray rockets in the restive border region with reprisals,.


“Israel stood by our side in a heroic way,” said Moatasem al-Golani, spokesman for the rebel group Fursan al-Joulan, or Knights of the Golan. “We wouldn’t have survived without Israel’s assistance.”


Al-Joulan is the main rebel group coordinating with Israel, according to fighters. It told the WSJ that Israel's support began as early as 2013 with the goal of creating a ‘buffer zone’ free of radical militants such as Isis and Iranian-allied forces along Israel’s border. A special Israeli army unit was created to oversee the costly aid operation, the WSJ reported.

The Journal also reports that Israel may be funding up to four other rebel groups which have Western backing. The groups use the cash to pay fighters and buy ammunition. 

Israel and Syria have technically been in a state of warfare for decades. Syria controls around one third of the Golan Heights border, and Israel occupies the rest.


Virtually for the entire duration of the Syrian conflict, Israel and Saudi Arabia were aligned on the same side against the Assad regime; it also means that one can now also add Israel to the ungodly proxy war in Syria alongside Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the US, Europe and most Arab states across from Iran, Turkey, Russia and, increasingly, China.

Today's revelation may also explain why ISIS has rarely if ever launched attacks against Israeli citizens or on Israel territory.

Comparing US Police to Slave Patrols

BleacherReport, June 18, 2017

Free-agent NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a picture on social media this week comparing modern police officers to fugitive slave patrols.

The 29-year-old quarterback garnered national headlines during the 2016 season for kneeling during the national anthem, a practice later joined by other athletes across the sports spectrum.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and police getting paid-leave and getting away with murder."

Those comments came less than two months after Castile was fatally shot by Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop last July.

On Friday,Yanez was found not guilty on all the charges brought against him in the case, including second-degree manslaughter and two counts of "intentional discharge of firearm that endangers safety."

Kaepernick posted a separate message on Twitter after the verdict was announced, which read: "My heart aches for Philando's family."Meanwhile, he's remained on the NFL free-agent market for a majority of the offseason with training camps now just over a month away.

Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com noted Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is among the players who said he believes the QB is being blackballed for his public stance.

This Is The Most Hideously Overvalued Market In History


TheDailyReckoning, June 18, 2017


“Markets go up on an escalator, they come down on an elevator. This is the most hideously overvalued market in history.”

David Stockman is a former Cabinet member where he served as the Director for Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. Ranging from 1976 to 1981 Stockman also served in the U.S Congress.  He went on to be a senior managing director of The Blackstone Group. The economic and financial analyst is now a best-selling author with his most recent book, Trumped! A Nation on the Brink… And How to Bring it Back.

«We have a government that is in total chaos. A president that they’re trying to unseat. A debt ceiling that can’t be raised. A tax bill that will never pass. Going into all of that, to say nothing of the red Ponzi in China that one of these days will spill its guts all over the world economy.
 
“And you want to pay twenty-five times earnings for today’s stock? Be my guest. This is a mania.”

David Stockman then targeted his sober analysis highlighting, “the Fed opened up the stimulus shoot and printed money like there was no tomorrow. Seven weeks after the Lehman bankruptcy [former Federal Reserve Chairman] Bernanke doubled the size of the balance sheet [of the Fed] from $900 to 1.8 trillion. He did in seven weeks what the Fed did in ninety-four years. They can’t do it again.»

“Anyone who is in the market today needs to get out of the market and out of harm’s way.”

US General Wants 20,000 Additional Ground Troops Sent To Afghanistan


ZeroHedge, June 17, 2017


The US is definitely going to be sending more ground troops to Afghanistan soon, but the exact number is yet to be determined, with the Pentagon today backing away from media reports yesterday that they’d settled on a figure of 4,000 more troops, saying no final decisions have been made yet on numbers.

Influential retired Gen. Jack Keane suggested that the US needed to send up to 20,000 more ground troops if they wanted to win the war.

Defense Secretary James Mattis conceded in testimony to the Senate this week that the US is “not winning” in Afghanistan, and President Trump has since given him unilateral authority to decide on troop levels and strategy. Mattis was seen as leaning toward the high end of escalation proposals.

Keane explicitly faulted President Obama for removing the 100,000 troops the US had in Afghanistan at one point and leaving only around 8,000 insisting that “we have to put that back if they’re going to be effective.”



16 years into the war, the US seems further than ever from something resembling victory. The United States has been formally at war with (or within) Afghanistan since 2001, with little to no tangible progress to show for it. No victory has emerged despite almost 16 years of war under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Barely even a month into his presidency, Obama approved a significant troop increase of at least 8,000 Marines, as well as 4,000 additional Army troops to Afghanistan (another 5,000 troops were to be deployed at a later date). By November of that year, Obama announced he was planned to send over 30,000 more troops to the war-stricken nation, highlighting a major escalation in the war and bringing the official number of U.S. troops to a whopping 100,000.

Although he originally indicated he would wind down the war, as early as 2009 it was reported that at one national security meeting, Obama told his advisors, “I want to take off the table that we’re leaving Afghanistan.” By 2014, he announced that the war was going to last additional two-and-a-half years.

The United States’ indiscriminate violence against its own allies on the ground — initiated by Bush and carried on recklessly under Obama — has been inherited by Trump. Barely a week ago, the U.S. killed three Afghan policemen in an air strike. The U.S. is killing its own allies on the ground and is creating more and more enemies in the process.

It is, therefore, no surprise at all that Afghans who have been trained by the U.S. turn their American-supplied weapons on the American soldiers who prepared them for battle. These incidents have occurred multiple times in the past.

The U.S. will almost certainly keep its defense contractors and arms dealers in business by ramping up a war with Afghanistan that has been escalated countless times with not so much as a shred of success.
