An open letter to Robert Parry & Tom Engelhardt - a Rant of the West - #MH17
I had higher hopes for your article (http://consortiumnews.com/2014/07/19/airline-horror-spurs-new-rush-to-judgment/), on the MH17 tragedy, not that is wasn’t some the best damn journalism I’ve seen to date on the event… please do take that as a critical compliment. It is not an “accident”, nor is it a “terrorist” attack by “Ukraine rebel/pro-Russian separatists”, nor is it a product of a “territorial” dispute. This is a bona fide International Tragedy of Historical Proportions. As I go through your recent article I will inadvertently unfold the deeper meaning of what that last sentence implies, although I do think that you have a clue or two.
You are very correct about the Media and Obama charging off. I remember Obama recently said something to the effect of (paraphrasing here), “We need to make sure the American citizens are aware and educated through the media.” Well, sad to say, but I give them both an F- and no, I’m not a professor. Any half-way educated person, and most especially anyone in the financial arena, should be aware that the BRICS nations just formed their Global Development Bank, Monetary Fund, Energy Commission along with plans for a transcontinental RxR from Peru to Brazil as well as a new canal to counter the Panama (http://thebricspost.com/brics-south-american-nations-discuss-shared-interests/#.U86keKiMFPJ & http://thebricspost.com/china-seeks-to-modify-global-governance-through-brics/#.U86kNaiMFPJ). All this was created and more in the summit that happened 7/14-7/16 this year. I should know, my birthday is on the 15th and I was hoping the new Bank would be my birthday present. I just didn’t know what all that entailed I guess, or I might’ve have wished for something different… like some chocolate ice-cream. Why is the Bank big news? Well, here’s Noam Chomsky from his book “Power Systems” 2012:
“Another respect in which the revolts (the occupy movements starting with Western Sahara Nov, 2010), are similar—almost identical, in fact—is that the destructive effects of neoliberalism are very highly praised by what’s sometimes called the International Monetary Fund (IMF)—World Bank—U.S. Treasury troika. In fact, in the case of Egypt, international financial elites highly praised the Mubarak dictatorship for its amazing economic performance and reforms up to just weeks before the regime crashed.” (pg 47)
And also… “The so called BRICS—Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa—also called for that.” (pg 50-51) This is reference to negotiations with Gadhafi, pushed by South Africa, much like what we saw with their accusations of apartheid practices by Israel upon Palestine (http://www.indiatvnews.com/news/world/brics-leaders-criticize-use-of-force-in-libya-3523.html & https://duckduckgo.com/l/?kh=-1&uddg=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.haaretz.com%2Fprint-edition%2Fopinion%2Fisrael-s-apartheid-is-worse-than-south-africa-s-1.4590).
The thing to recognize here is that BRICS are affecting the UN, they are allowing (in 1-2 years), for developing nations to use funding from something besides US policy driven economics for the first time in modern history. It is considered by some to be the answer to the World Bank/IMF/US global financial control that has existed since the eve of WWII when these two organizations were born, from a World War. Now, with flight MH17 we find ourselves on the verge of another WW, and what has been born… that’s right, BRICS Bank. This is no coincidence, this is more like a bad dream of history trying to repeat itself while drowning in vodka floating with anti-depressants moaning over some lost lover. That reminds me, you do know BRICS was coined by Goldman Sachs guru Jim O’Neil (http://snbchf.com/global-macro/jim-oneills-bullish-brics-outlook-until-2020-and-our-critics/), to inspire U.S. investors into developing nations, he also came up with MINT, but no time for that now. One of those rising Nations is Nigeria, I would like to mention here that during the WEF in Nigeria this year, during the “kidnapping” (that most of western media has all but forgotten), Forbes did an article (http://www.forbes.com/sites/mfonobongnsehe/2014/05/08/10-memorable-quotes-from-the-2014-world-economic-forum-on-africa/), listing the top 10 quotes, one was from a company named McKinsey & Company, they’ve been around since 1924 or so. Here’s the quote “Africa represents our fastest-growing region in the world. If you want to be relevant, you need to be in this part of the world” Dominic Barton, the Global Managing Director of McKinsey & Company. In other news I’ve read, they also look forward to a 20-40 growth in the rising middle classes of the world, they need iPhones/Pads & Google Glasses too, equal rights yo. Well, little do they know I went to their website (http://www.mckinsey.com/), that day I read the Forbes article, their frontpage read “RESOURCE REVOLUTION” (their caps), and yes, they’ve changed it since I’ve brought it up on twitter but I think we should get them to bring it back for Justice. Well, anyhow, Jim is retired now (http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/05/us-goldman-oneill-idUSBRE91411320130205), and last I heard he is being courted by the U.K. for some type of government pharmaceutical director spot, my guess was for nano-pharmaceuticals, a “hot” item in the investor pools… but, I tend to stay away from speculation.
You were only half right about the Media, but I’m not sure if they were jumping the gun so much as running with it. I have read much of the western media searching for any mention of the birth of BRICS bank in any of the articles regarding the “crash”… not one, not even Business Inside— are they looking for a motive too? (http://www.businessinsider.com/mh17-crash-investigation-2014-7), Especially not the Economist (http://www.economist.com/blogs/economist-explains/2014/07/economist-explains-14), propaganda is such a waste of trees)), both of these western financial journals have done articles on that topic and knew what was transpiring. The articles that did report on it just before the crash were slanted and hyper critical in tone. The Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2014/07/16/the-brics-have-a-bank-what-does-that-even-mean/), and Bloomberg (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-07-14/brics-fight-waning-clout-with-150-billion-deal-in-brazil-summit.html) are good examples of the recent western media tone… just before the crash, then… MEDIA BLACKOUT in any article regarding the “crash” in the main western press (include the BBC). Under the dawn of a new global bank, that Russia was instrumental in forming, why would Russia want to risk that with a plane “crash”… they wouldn’t would they? Further, why would pro-RUSSIAN separatists want to jeopardize such a new world venture, they wouldn’t? If our policy makers wish to argue about the rebels getting supplies, well, that could only mean they got information too, not to mention you can look up the BRICSPost.com on the internet… it doesn’t take much, not even for a “separatist” with no electricity or a migrant farmer like me… just love those smart phones & their mineral conflict reports (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XldYIDqcldc).
This is a glaring fact to witness in the world of media, and if it were the only one that would be slightly better, but it’s not. In the Guardian recently there was a great article regarding Gaza’s gas field and Israel’s coming fuel shortage in 20-40 years (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2014/jul/09/israel-war-gaza-palestine-natural-gas-energy-crisis). This is one of the main motives sighted by many Palestinians and sympathizers, like me. Now, when did Israel start their ground invasion? The next day after BRICS Bank had been formed, and when was Israel formed? About the same time as the World Bank, ironically? When the the “crash” of MH17 happen? On the 17th?
Another thing not mentioned in much of the western press surrounding the “crash” is the current pipeline offshore jackal jockeying seen world wide. TIPA is a great one to look at in this circumstance as it involves one of the BRICS nations, India. Either it gets it’s gas from Iran (interested to see how the new US - Iranifare will play into this), or it gets it’s gas from Turkmenistan… via U.S.’s TIPA of course. Or we could talk about the pipeline to the E.U. currently being brokered by BP to sidestep Russia and Gazprom, not to mention the U.S. Weapons deal just made with Qatar (http://politicalmunchie.com/2014/07/15/us-sells-qatar-11-billion-in-weapons/) again for the gas. Or the deal in Ukraine that Shell backed out of (http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/19/ukraine-crisis-shell-idUSL6N0MG40H20140319), or the deal that happened in Russia (http://seekingalpha.com/article/2104143-russias-gazprom-european-energy-and-u-s-oil-and-shale-gas-shorting-russia).
Ethics are really moving around: Barclay’s with it’s gold fixing (http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303480304579579360337255896), inspiring Shanghai’s gold exchange (http://in.reuters.com/article/2014/07/03/idINL6N0PE46E20140703), Germany still can’t get it’s gold (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/01/16/why-germany-wants-its-674-tons-of-gold-back/), from the U.S. while getting recorded by the NSA and btw… Merkel 1 vs NSA 0. Ukraine’s gold supposedly was flown to the NY Fed (http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2014/3/10_Did_Ukraine_Just_Airlift_Its_Entire_Gold_Hoard_To_The_U.S._Fed.html), with mentions of Goldman Sachs, who is still trying to get rid of that yellow cake uranium if you want some. Or the current Central Bank financial situation brought up by Jack Ewing on 6/29 in the NYT where he quoted Claudio Borio (head of the monetary and economic dept. at B.I.S.), as saying “The temptation to postpone adjustment can prove irresistible, especially when times are good and financial booms sprinkle the fairy dust of illusory riches,” & “the consequence is growth model that relies too much on debt, both private and public, and which over time sows the sees of its own demise.” Well, when you put it like that it gives you a picture that has many in the financial sector quaking (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/30/business/international/central-bankers-issue-strong-warning-on-asset-bubbles.html?_r=0). Couple that quote with the fact that Lloyd’s has been insurance advising European Central Banks on monetary pullouts since 2012 (http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/international/2012/06/15/251742.htm), with a little Tory, or, Irish Criminal lego armageddon with the Scots (lego’s got a bad reputation, greenpeace doesn’t like them either. I noticed in Israel they had the newest ones much like the animation when I was in Okinawa), and their current (and very british if I might say), “attitude” of the E.U. which doesn’t surprisingly sound much different than the U.S.’s “fuck the E.U.” Nuland “attitude”. Didn’t Ron Paul get boo’d off the stage when he said: “Maybe we ought to consider a Golden Rule…in foreign policy” (N. Chomsky “Power Systems” pg75). An older economist friend of mine wanted me to mention that the last quarter of 2013 the S&P was at 82% profits, 2014 second quarter 95% profits - thanks to the Fed for printing fairy dust for the newborns to play in. Sweden is mentioned a couple of times in this article in praise, well, they do have the largest weapons manufacturing industry in the world, thanks guys!
The media is not alone, Obama’s use the word ‘territory” when referring to the area where the missile in question came from. Was that land or air? Or how about the 3 “People” (what are those anyway?), arrested near the Ukrainian border with missile training?
The western media reminds me of the saying— Love is Blind, and it is in love with a lie. There is no “american dream” of exceptionalism left in this future of climate change, only hard work. All the major news conglomerates (not the Daily Show or Colbert), should be disintegrated into nothing, from whence it came. It has led us astray towards a cliff of sustainability, and has enticed the world with it’s now rotten apple pie. I am american, my ancestors came over on the Oregon Trail, we’d still have that farm in Independence in the family if it weren’t for what this “great nation” did to the small farmers (monsanto/subsidies/etc), my Grandfather quit the OR Agricultural dept. because of “too much red tape” and became a farmer. But enough about that bunch of ninnies in the media/government.
You and all of the Western Media I’ve read make no mention of the Ukrain’s Space and Missile industry in your article - here is a release from the Euromaiden Press from 5/12/14 (http://www.euromaidanpress.com/2014/05/12/ukraine-to-regain-position-in-world-space-and-missile-industry/), where they brag about “their" growing missile and space industry, and I’ll give you one guess as to why it is growing, new contracts, contracts that should be torn up by justice since they sell missiles to both the U.S. and Russia. My father’s side is Ukrainian Jew, so you can imagine how I feel about McCain (Why in the hell would you hire a born again to make the moral governors for LARs?), or Kerry. My grandfather moved when he was young after WWI to Cuba where he lived for about 8 years until he came to the U.S. and became a U.S. citizen and infantry soldier in the 11th tank battalion of the Battle of the Buldge, where he died before I was born. He died fighting Nazis, now the U.S. policy makers support them. Nazis like Svoboda Party member Oleh Tyahnybok that Stanley Cohen brought up the other day, the one who called for an ethnically pure nation purged of the…“Moscow-Jewish mafia and other scum” e.g. Homosexuals, Feminists & Leftists.” How many Aids activists and scientists were on that plane, no connection there is there? I also lived in Israel during the Yom Kippur War, I remember the graham crackers that Israel kept in their bomb shelters for the kids to race down the steps to. By the way Israel, you need to have eyes to cry that you lost one, are you the boy or the wolf? Or if that’s not good enough I could always point to my suspicion that Israel wants to create the world’s first Externalized Financialized Panopticon out of Gaza (http://www.timesofisrael.com/israels-cashless-society-wont-pay-say-critics/ + https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/08TELAVIV2447_a.html). My “other” name is David, put that in your pipeline and smoke it. It wasn’t until much later that I wondered about whether giving sugar to a child during an air raid might make a lasting imprint of an addictive nature…to war… no connection? To put it mildly, I am very connected to all of these horrible events (we all are), aside from them happening right after my 46th birthday (I already feel like Ellsberg btw (http://www.tomdispatch.com/post/175870/tomgram%3A_engelhardt%2C_the_future_is_not_ours_%28and_neither_is_the_past%29/). I demand that all those found connected to and approving of what I believe to be Kiev’s recent actions get removed from government and put in GITMO (after they release the “terrorists”, one of whom was 15), that includes the gas companies, the bankers and the other private sector amoralists that got us to this much needed reflective time in our history. So, here is my reflection…
I’d consider myself an International peaceful dissident politcally speaking, not “anarchistic”, democratic, neoliberal or other identity fallacy, but more like… Occupy Globalization - Occupy BRICS-A-MINT (my brain child O’Niel), Occupy the U.N., the U.S., the E.U. , NATO and throw in BITCoin and reshape the ethics and purpose for the 7th generation of the future, for the Dying Water behind the Dams or from mercury left over from the Gold Rush (the poor Water Bear Protozoa!), for something that matters besides the next elaborate world theft false flag song and dance for that old money, maybe say… a selfless directive global democratic economy, let’s just say it could be a branch off of the Enclave Theory of Global Markets… because the better of us know that control is an illusion best not served at all. With the erosion of liberties like that Holder vs Humanitarian Law Project, the young don’t need “terrorist” ideologies to be pissed (as U.S. policy makers would like many to think they’re all going to Yemen for training while the NSA gets free training from HALO), the U.S. actions, attitudes, “ethics” and utter lack of morality of our western policy makers, judges and private sector fraternities playing their dog eat dog game for table scraps while the chessboard cracks from climate change… that’s a good start this year for Japan huh? All those island and beachfront homes in say like…Saychelles (can’t remember where I saw that great aricle), or all those little tiny islands of the “world” in Saudi Arabia - HERE ME ROAR WITH NATURE! On a side note - I’ve already copyrighted the entire universe as a work of art in progress via the internet as my medium and my brother is a patent lawyer— as soon as I decide to have an address I’ll expect damages.
In closing I feel it necessary to clarify my pen name White Apple. I have chosen this moniker not to remain anonymous (Socrates wouldn’t have done that), as I have offered the NSA and other a plethora of clues as to my identity… just not worried about it anymore I guess. In the not so distant past “A real red apple” was a derogatory phrase used by “american” Indians to describe another as one who was red on the outside and white in the middle meaning that they sided with the “white” man. Well, I’m the opposite, or as I like to call it— A True American. I hereby humbly beg for forgiveness from the spirits of the long gone tribe of the Lukiamute Indians (the first to go to the camps, they were non-violent & unknowingly turned in other violent Indian tribes, a little different than some of the Jews of WWII), the land my ancestors INVADED for, KILLED for and STOLE, and I suggest many do the same. In closing my deepest and most sincere of regards to the families of the lives of MH17, Gaza, East Ukraine, Iraq, Syria and many many more that we didn’t have to lose (I have cried many times), they were all three point shooters at the end of a very close game, it’s about odds after all… isn’t it?
