Liar Pants On Fire

1952 Hanson Baldwin wrote, about the war in Vietnam, "The people
of France are becoming more and more Weary of conflict that brings them
no return at a cost known to every tax payer" In November 2006
the American taxpayers said the same thing with their vote against the
Bush War. There will be many investigations and subpoenas that will
now lead to chaos and turmoil in American politics. but In the end greed
will prevail. It always does. The liars will see to it.
In 1948 when the United States
and Israel became joined at the hip ("One nation Indivisible"
Senator Lieberman said) The very creation of the state was based on
Hypocrisy and Lies. Many of the Russians who made up the second Aliya
to Palestine in the early 1900s were committed socialists. Their influence
permeated the thinking of the next Kibbutzim generation, however when
western Jews brought the gathering instincts of their capitalist upbringing
to the land they came in direct ideological conflict with the Socialists.
Young Jews enamored with the idea of carrying a gun joined the Irgun
and found themselves in the midst of an exciting game. Their families
escaped Nazi Germany. They were Jewish. God gave them the land. They
will fight for it. They will bring peace, prosperity and Justice to
When they matured and their
Israel became the oppressor and began blowing
up Palestinian homes and
practicing blatant ethnic cleansing, what could they do? I remember
Rashod Hasson calling Uri Avnery the "anti-Zionist Zionist"
and there are many in Israel today who can be described that way. Each
day they wonder who they are and where they are going.
Since 1948 when America began
its mad dash to the extreme political right to build the empire, it
brought Israel right along with it. There are those who want to believe
that President Truman was an enthusiastic advocate of the creation of
a Jewish state and that it was important to the empire, however the
historical records show just the opposite. Read some of the quotes of
President Truman obtained from The Truman Library…
"I told the Jews that
if they were willing to furnish me with five hundred thousand men to
carry on a war with the Arabs, we could do what they are suggesting
in the Resolution [favoring a state] - otherwise we will have to negotiate
"It is a very explosive
situation we are facing, and naturally I regret it very much, but I
don't think that you, or any of the other Senators, would be inclined
to send half a dozen Divisions to Palestine to maintain a Jewish State."
"What I am trying to
do is to make the whole world safe for the Jews. Therefore, I don't
feel like going to war for Palestine.""
According to Henry Wallace,
Truman said, "Jesus Christ couldn't please them when he was here
on earth, so how can anyone expect that I would have any luck?"
Showing despair and anger
over the atrocities committed by Jews against the Palestinians, He wrote
to Eleanor Roosevelt on August 23, 1947,
"I fear very much that
the Jews are like all underdogs. When they get on top they are just
as intolerant and cruel as the people were to them when they were underneath.
I regret this situation very much because my sympathy has always been
on their side."
He was not the brightest
President we ever had, but he sure was on the mark with that one. Later
he was to admit that Zionists held his I.O.Us. "If not for my friend
Abe, (Feinberg') I couldn't have made the [whistle-stop train] trip
and I wouldn't have been elected," Truman stated
He was referring, of course,
to the financial help he received. He had no money of his own and got
little help from the Democratic Party.
On June 27, 1950, Truman
told the American people that North Korea's attack on South Korea showed
the world "Communism has passed beyond the use of subversion to
conquer independent nations and will now use armed Intervention, Truman
equated Joseph Stalin's actions with Adolf Hitler's in the 1930s. He
was terrorizing America and lying to the people about Soviets invading
Korea. It was the strategy of the empire builders. Americans feared
the "Reds" are going to invade us and blow up all of our churches.
The truth is that civil war
in Korea began the day the Japanese were driven out and with the help
of "American advisors" the South Koreans initiated most of
the border clashes with North Korean forces at the 38th parallel.
A young idealistic congressman
obviously propelled into a job above his head was sent to Asia to acquire
knowledge his Father thought he needed to become White House material.
Upon his return Congressman Kennedy he said,
"The Indo-Chinese states
are puppet states, French principalities with great resources but as
typical examples of empire and colonialism as can be found anywhere.
To check the southern drive of Communism makes sense but not only through
reliance on the force of arms. The task is, rather, to build strong
native non-Communist sentiment within these areas and rely on that as
a spearhead of defense. To do this apart from and in defiance of innately
nationalistic aims spells foredoomed failure."
It wasn’t long before those grooming the young man for the White
House instilled the Red bogeyman into his brain. He inherited the embarrassing
work of (code-named JMARC). concocted by the likes of Richard Bissell.
E. Howard Hunt and they even worked with such Mafia degenerates as Johnny
Roselli and SamGiancana. The purpose was to kill Fidel Castro and restore
Cuba to the Mafia Gamblers and the child prostitution racketeers that
Castro kicked out.
It must have been difficult
for the helpless Kennedy still trying to hold on to some of his youthful
Idealism. He disappointed the cutthroats by not send the bombers over
Havana during the Pay of Pigs fiasco and I do believe that his assassination
was planned that day.
Kennedy was still carrying
the inner shame of the hero label his father insisted he be given (Joe
Kennedy wanted him to get the Congressional medal Of Honor, But high
ranking navy officials put out the word that they would say he should
have been court-martialed for being asleep with no one on watch and
letting his speedy PT boat be run over by a Japanese war ship.) The
Congressional Medal was dropped.
This poor wretched man suffering
back pain and other ailments was pushed and pulled apart and final shot
dead. He had the war mongering Cardinal Spellman, Allan Dulles then
CIA head, and the kings of the Military Industrial complex who thrived
on the anti-Communist fear propaganda, all doing the pushing and shoving.
According to the terms of
the Geneva Accords, Vietnam would hold national elections in 1956 to
reunify the country. The division at the seventeenth parallel, a temporary
separation without cultural precedent, would be erased with the elections.
Dulles and Spellman had other
Ideas. Spellman saw it as an anti-Catholic Document and Dulles
a pro Communist one. The
debate about whether Kennedy wanted to pull out (and evidence seems
to show that Kennedy did want to withdraw the bulk of America troops
from Vietnam.) is no longer relevant. What is relevant is that millions
died and so many were wounded because of the lies and millions may die
because of the lies of the present Bush administration.
Only a few benefit from the
lies, Korea is still divided, Vietnam is Communist,
Israel suffers from the same
lies that brought America to its present state of deterioration.
Both are divided nations
with poverty, corruption, crime and violence making daily media fare.
Today I read a headline in
a local paper…"one out of every six children in Hartford
Connecticut has a relative in Jail". What kind of a society did
the lies build? Israel is awash in scandal and corruption. Poverty there
is a scandal in itself as it is in America.
The deadly lies are still
fed to us by the media. There for the main objective should be to direct
some of the subpoenas and
congressional investigative committees to the 5 huge corporations --
Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch's News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany,
and Viacom (formerly CBS) – who now control most of the media
industry in the U.S. General Electric's NBC is a close sixth so we might
as well include them.
Realism and Truth must be
reborn or the liars will thrive and millions more will die.
