Their Propaganda….Our Propaganda
The Guardian was able to get a hold of some paintings that were made by a North Korean propaganda artist, for the North Korean people. The paintings depict their “glorious neighbor” China.
Keep in mind, when you see these, that most North Koreans have never been to China:
What a glorious place…a Heaven on Earth mixed with The Land of Oz.
Fortunately, here in the United States, we have freedom of the press, and it takes hard effort for that press to pull the wool over our eyes!
Americans are not so easily fooled:

Roupakiotis: Action Against Golden Dawn “On instructions from US & European Commission”
The case against the Golden Dawn party is becoming into a soap opera, and everyday we are discovering more and more puzzling information. One more hit came on Friday, and it is a MEGA Bomb! Speaking on SKAI television, former Minister of Justice A. Roupakiotis, and DIMAR MP (surprise, surprise), argued that the government received a command to take action against the Golden Dawn party from US officials and members at the European Commission! -He said this ON AIR – And he went a step further adding that there was even an attempt by the government to intervene in the work of the Greek justice system (in this particular case)! A shocking statement, but this also explains why the President of Judges and Prosecutors sent out a warning one day earlier to all concerned noting that the Greek justice system should be left alone to conduct its work, without the influence of the government and/or media.
“Jewish American and Greek-American organizations were coming to Greece and pressuring (the government) about the Golden Dawn party. Clearly, this played a major role (in the action against them). Obviously the Prime Minister had to say something to them,” said Mr. Roupakiotis, referring to the statements of the Greek premier earlier in the week which reassured these organizations that he would crackdown on GD.
“On January 1, 2014 Greece assumes the presidency of the EU, and there was mounting pressure from the European Commission against the Golden Dawn party,” added Roupakiotis.
Some reports on Friday claimed that specific advisers to the government, and those who permitted Evangelos -The Large- Venizelos to hammer down on this party, is based on his own personal strategy. And if true, then can we safely assume that these forces have promised something to Venizelos? Because it is clear that the case against the Golden Dawn party (guilty or not) is poor and lacks the evidence needed.
Is this just a smokescreen? Is it another game by Venizelos to begin eliminating his political opponents in a ploy to save his own party -which incidentally is bankrupt? Or is it because the Golden Dawn party filed a lawsuit a day before the arrests calling on the Supreme Court to investigate PASOK?
Who knows? One thing is certain, Venizelos is the eyes and ears of the Troika in Greece, and a favorite in Brussels, and for the European Commission to come out and make such a demand, then surely they have promised him something because he materialized on it.

DC is hurt by the government “shutdown.” The United States is better off.
Well, the sun came up again today in Charlottesville Virginia. Quite a lovely morning. The last warm rays of summer are shining down. The leaves are just beginning to change color. The goldenrod is in full bloom as we await the first frost of the Fall season. It’s nice.
But 90 miles to the north we are told the world is ending. The government has shut down. Didn’t we notice? Aren’t we concerned. How will life go on?
I barely noticed. I am not concerned. Life will go on just fine.
First the government hasn’t “shut down.” The Navy didn’t just pull over the USS Eisenhower and give everyone leave. The government is still “open,” it’s just working at a reduced capacity. And I am just fine with that. Much of America is just fine with that.
Only “essential” federal workers are reporting to work, less than 10% of the governmental workforce. This begs the question, why do we pay for the other 90%? Is the US government really 90% fat?
That’s probably about right.
Since World War I, and it should also be noted the advent of the Federal Reserve system, the government has grown ever larger. In 1900 the government constituted less than 7% of the US economy (perhaps the tail end of most productive period ever for this country) now it is at around 40%. The government is an ever growing blob of red tape and waste. It takes from the productive part of the economy and feeds its insatiable appetite. Leviathan is never satisfied. It will eat until it consumes everything.
This is why I, and many other Americans shrug when we hear that the government has “shut down.”
Here’s a compromise, keep things going at the current “shutdown” levels and let everyone else go. Imagine a 90% reduction in the size of government. It would do wonders for our economy and would get us primed for the new and much more dynamic world ahead of us.
But what of the laid off federal workers? Wouldn’t that be a shock to the economic system?
Of course, but we could let them all go over the next 5 years in stages. Give them a nice severance and then send them out into the big wide world.
There is no doubt that life would get much harder for many government workers. But there are a lot of smart people working in government who would be more efficiently utilized in the private sector. Instead of doing the “meeting circuit” which any federal worker will tell you is often a big part of how they pass the time, these people could be out starting businesses and making the world a better place. Some of the best software people in the world work for the US government. Turn them loose on the marketplace. Amazing things will happen.
Many of these workers are relatively wealthy already. The average total compensation for a federal worker is over $120,000. They should have saved some. With a bit of severance there are worse employment situations to find oneself in.
But it is a harsher world outside the bosom of the Beltway than most government workers are used to. The mere thought that they could lose their job at all, under any circumstance is bewildering to many who exist within the federal worker bubble.
If you think I’m kidding I am not. I’ve known plenty of folks in government agencies, many of them fine upstanding people, who think they are entitled to a job courtesy of the taxpayer – for life. The whole bureaucratic part of the city (that is most of the city) operates under this assumption.
And that’s why there has been so much wailing this week. The bureaucracy, Leviathan, can not believe that it is being denied in any way. “How dare they “shut down” the government. I’ve got a BMW payment to make!”
That’s what all this nonsense is about. That and that most government workers know they have a good thing going and they can’t (really would just prefer not to) conceive of a world in which the cold winds of the marketplace ever buffit their federally fattened behinds. The wealthiest city in the US is Washington DC largely because of federal workers and federal contractors. These folks don’t want government reduced ever. Heck they don’t even want Americans thinking about ending federal programs.
The reason government workers don’t want America even thinking about Leviathan, about the writhing pulsing, growing, blob of red tape is because they know that America might just wake up and realize that for the most part she is much better off without Leviathan.
If America ever figures this out on a wide scale the Beltway party might be up. And no one ever wants a party to end.
Except the people paying for the party.

My applause to Nick, well stated. Enjoyed the same beautiful morning here in east TN. I do find humor in the “shutdown” catastrophe while others are crying. With all of the people, working tirelessly as individuals or in groups, try to dismantle or at least downsize the beast, the beast has, even temporarily, accomplished this. Amazing is the power of greed and ego in action when feasting on itself. Now if we could just replace the “non-essential” 90% with nothing.
Dozens Killed By Freakishly Huge Hornets In China – And Now They Are Attacking People In The U.S. Too0
Dozens Killed By Freakishly Huge Hornets In China – And Now They Are Attacking People In The U.S. Too
The photo of an Asian giant hornet posted above was taken by blogger Kurt Bell, and as you can see, these Asian giant hornets are freakishly huge. They are also extremely aggressive and they are not afraid to attack people at all. And as you will read about below, getting stung by one of them is exceedingly painful. If they only attacked humans once in a while, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal. Unfortunately, Asian giant hornets appear to be multiplying rapidly and they have killed dozens of people in China in recent months. But most Americans are not going to get too concerned about a plague of giant hornets on the other side of the planet. Well, what if I told you that Asian giant hornets are now spreading like wildfire in this country and attacking people all over the United States? Would I have your attention then? Because that is precisely what is happening.
The recent giant hornet attacks in China have made headlines all over the globe. For example, the following is an excerpt from a recent article in the Guardian…
Twenty-eight people have died and hundreds have been injured in a wave of attacks by giant hornets in central China, according to reports.
Victims described being chased for hundreds of meters by the creatures and stung as many as 200 times.
Being stung feels “like a hot nail through my leg,” as one entomologist put it, and their venom can dissolve skin. They’re fast, too, flying up to 25 miles per hour (41 kilometers an hour). They’re also the largest hornets on the planet, reaching 5.5 centimeters (2.2 inches).
You can’t outrun these hornets and they are unbelievably vicious. Just check out what they do to other bees…
The Asian giant hornet is the world’s largest hornet, and is a voracious predator that dines on mantises, bees and other large insects. It has a deservedly evil reputation for wiping out entire hives containing thousands of honeybees by biting off the bees’ heads and then stealing their honey and bee larvae. The hornets are capable of flying up to 62 miles (100 kilometers) in a single day at speeds of 25 mph (40 km/h).
Asian giant hornets are five times larger than regular honey bees, and they have absolutely huge jaws. They work incredibly quickly and they can kill up to 40 honey bees in a single minute.
Perhaps this is one of the factors that is contributing to the massive decline in the honey bee population around the globe.
But much more frightening is what these giant hornets are now doing to humans. Just check out the following example from a recent Quartz article…
Here’s a chilling scene that Chen Changlin, an Ankang farmer, witnessed one evening a few days ago. As he harvested rice on evening, hornets swarmed a woman and child working nearby. When they reached Chen, they stung him for three minutes straight. Chen made it; the other two died. “The more you run, the more they want to chase you,” said another victim, whose kidneys were ravaged by the venom. When he was admitted to the hospital, his urine was the color of soy sauce.
Of course these giant predators no longer reside just in Asia. Thanks to “free trade”, they are now also in Europe…
That’s why bee populations in France, where Chinese hornets arrived via a Chinese pottery shipment in 2005, have already taken a hit. Since then, Chinese hornets have spread at a pace of up to 100 km (62 miles) a year. Within the last three years, they’ve invaded Spain, Portugal and Belgium; soon they’ll arrive in Italy and the UK, says the European Environment Agency.
And even though most Americans don’t realize this, they are also spreading all over the United States as well.
According to one very disturbing news report, there have been recent sightings of Asian giant hornets all over the United States…
A forum on DSLReports.com Need to kill Asian Hornets and comments on a BadSpiderBites.com Giant Hornet article includes reports of Asian Giant Hornets in Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. One of the pictures from a contributor from Tennessee shows a European Hornet. Last Fall posters reported aggressive infestations in recent years. In Georgia a poster reports he doesn’t go a day without seeing one of the giant hornets. One poster reports the insects flying into lights at night, and an infestation in a chimney with about 200 hornets getting inside the house. Many posters scoff at the comments that the insects aren’t aggressive. Some posters report that the large hornets are not affected by wasp/hornet spray.
Over time, Asian giant hornets will greatly multiply in this country and will be found almost everywhere.
So not only are millions of Americans losing their good paying jobs to “free trade”, we are also getting the added bonus of an endless plague of human-killing giant hornets.
These giant hornets don’t just attack little kids and elderly people. They will even attack full grown men. For example, just check out what happened to one man in Virginia…
I live in Richmond Virginia, & my parents live in King William Virginia. One day while visiting my folks, I was standing in their yard, talking to my mother with my arms crossed, when I heard what sounded like a rc airplane in a full on nosedive. I looked up just in time to see a humming bird sized hornet, identical to the picture of the Asian giant hornet, coming straight at me. It stung me on top of my ear & I have NEVER experienced such pain in my life, before, or since. The pain lasted for hours.
I am pierced & tattood all over, none of them hurt. This hurt. I cursed & cried like a little baby right in front of my mother. I am not allergic to bee or wasp stings, yet my entire face swelled up to extremely scary proportions. I have seen European hornets & cicada killers before. Nope, not it. Plus this thing was huge, & quite obviously, extremely aggressive, since I was doing NOTHING. Standing in the yard with my arms crossed. Not messing with a nest, not cutting grass, not doing jack. I have easily seen a dozen since that incident, & NO ONE will convince me they are not here. Yes it gets hot in VA, but NEVER over 100-105 degrees, so try again with the “It gets too hot here” B.S.. They ARE here.
Yes, they are here and now there is even a Facebook group dedicated to sharing spottings of Asian giant hornets in the United States.
What will you do when these vicious predators decide to take up residence in your neighborhood?
Are the Producers (in society) Losing to the Predators?
This is an article which should be read by anyone who understands the mission of Against Crony Capitalism.
What is a society to do as the population keeps getting older, when the economically “productive” people number fewer than the people who are retiring? This is the great question which is confronting this country and Europe right now. How can the 20th Century welfare state survive in the face of such an important demographic shift?
The answer is that it can not. We will go through hell coming to this understanding however.
(From Real Clear Markets)
Most Americans seem indifferent as to how they get ahead, whether by wealth creation or redistribution. The choice seems abstract. Fair enough. But for the country, the choice matters enormously. The appeal of the affluent society was that one group’s gains didn’t have to come at the expense of others’. The promise of economic growth was oversold, but it had the healthy effect of encouraging an expansive and inclusive vision of America.
What’s emerging today is more self-interested and self-destructive. The dilemma of a rich society is that its prospects can be undermined by its very abundance. Countries preoccupied with distributional wars are distracted from production.

US and Russia Reach Agreement on Syria Weapons — Can The US Stop Arming the Jihadists Now?
The US and Russia yesterday reached what looks to be a solid agreement on how to proceed with the dismantling of the chemical weapons stores of the Syrian government as well as destruction of Syria’s production capabilities. Syria agreed to the Russian-proposed deal (with a little inspiration from US Secretary of State John Kerry) with the understanding that giving up its chemical weapons would avert a US military attack.
The agreement seems full enough of ambiguities regarding the consequences of less than full Syrian compliance to allow the US government some face-saving saber rattling about retaining the option to strike unilaterally, while being vague enough in defining what exactly constitutes non-compliance to make difficult a clear cut case for a UN Chapter 7 use of force resolution. In other words, seemingly win-win.
The process of identifying and destroying the Syrian cache of chemical weapons is supposed to be completed by next year, but adhering to such a timeline can be difficult. In 1997, the US promised to destroy its vast stores of chemical and biological weapons in ten years. Thirteen years later, the US retains some 2,611 tons of mustard gas and 524 tons of other chemical weapons, including sarin gas.
The US and Russian side have both indicated a new determination to bring the Syrian government and the insurgents fighting to overthrow it to a new round of talks in Geneva, optimistically by October. This is unlikely, however, as although the Russian side had managed to secure agreement to attend on the part of the Syrian government, with which it maintains cordial relations, the US has been completely unable to secure any agreement with the various insurgent factions it is supporting.
Western media and governments claimed that the armed Syrian rebellion started because the Syrian government fired on peaceful demonstrators. That has been proven false many times over, as it became clear that the Islamist extremist struggle against the secular Assad regime had been planned well in advance by forces outside Syria and had been armed from the start.
That Assad retains a level of popularity among the Syrian population — particularly the Christian minority that has come under attack by the insurgents — has been confirmed by polls and by the simple fact that two years into an insurgency heavily supported by outside powers he has managed to retain his position. If his government were as unpopular as was claimed, it would have been impossible to withstand the internal and external pressure.
The US/Russia agreement takes the WMD issue off the table for the US and its regime change allies in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, and elsewhere. US action is required, it has been claimed, because the Syrian government’s chemical weapons stores are a threat to the region and beyond. Those are to be secured by the UN.
So by what justification does the United States continue to arm and train, in violation of international law, the insurgents that seek to overthrow the Syrian government?
The answer is that there is no justification, as should be obvious at this point. Will the media begin asking these questions? Don’t hold your breath, but there is a sense that a profound shift in the “unipolar moment” that has categorized the post-Cold War period has taken place. There is a sense that the tectonic plates of the existing world order have shifted slightly. History shows us that when a shift occurs, in plate tectonics and in world balance of power, the resulting earthquake can be sudden and profound.

Role Reversal: How the US Became the USSR — Paul Craig Roberts
I spent the summer of 1961 behind the Iron Curtain. I was part of the US-USSR student exchange program. It was the second year of the program that operated under auspices of the US Department of State. Our return to the West via train through East Germany was interrupted by the construction of the Berlin Wall. We were sent back to Poland. The East German rail tracks were occupied with Soviet troop and tank trains as the Red Army concentrated in East Germany to face down any Western interference.
Fortunately, in those days there were no neoconservatives. Washington had not grown the hubris it so well displays in the 21st century. The wall was built and war was avoided. The wall backfired on the Soviets. Both JFK and Ronald Reagan used it to good propaganda effect.
In those days America stood for freedom, and the Soviet Union for oppression. Much of this impression was created by Western propaganda, but there was some semblance to the truth in the image. The communists had a Julian Assange and an Edward Snowden of their own. His name was Cardinal Jozef Mindszenty, the leader of the Hungarian Catholic Church.
Mindszenty opposed tyranny. For his efforts he was imprisoned by the Nazis. Communists also regarded his as an undesirable, and he was tortured and given a life sentence in 1949.
Freed by the short-lived Hungarian Revolution in 1956, Mindszenty reached the American Embassy in Budapest and was granted political asylum by Washington. However, the communists would not give him the free passage that asylum presumes, and Mindszenty lived in the US Embassy for 15 years, 79% of his remaining life.
In the 21st century roles have reversed. Today it is Washington that is enamored of tyranny. On Washington’s orders, the UK will not permit Julian Assange free passage to Ecuador, where he has been granted asylum. Like Cardinal Mindszenty, Assange is stuck in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London.
Washington will not permit its European vassal states to allow overflights of airliners carrying Edward Snowden to any of the countries that have offered Snowden asylum. Snowden is stuck in the Moscow airport.
In Washington politicians of both parties demand that Snowden be captured and executed. Politicians demand that Russia be punished for not violating international law, seizing Snowden, and turning him over to Washington to be tortured and executed, despite the fact that Washington has no extradition treaty with Russia.
Snowden did United States citizens a great service. He told us that despite constitutional prohibition, Washington had implemented a universal spy system intercepting every communication of every American and much of the rest of the world. Special facilities are built in which to store these communications.
In other words, Snowden did what Americans are supposed to do–disclose government crimes against the Constitution and against citizens. Without a free press there is nothing but the government’s lies. In order to protect its lies from exposure, Washington intends to exterminate all truth tellers.
The Obama Regime is the most oppressive regime ever in its prosecution of protected whistleblowers. Whistleblowers are protected by law, but the Obama Regime insists that whistleblowers are not really whistleblowers. Instead, the Obama Regime defines whistleblowers as spies, traitors, and foreign agents. Congress, the media, and the faux judiciary echo the executive branch propaganda that whistleblowers are a threat to America. It is not the government that is violating and raping the US Constitution that is a threat. It is the whistleblowers who inform us of the rape who are the threat.
The Obama Regime has destroyed press freedom. A lackey federal appeals court has ruled that NY Times reporter James Risen must testify in the trial of a CIA officer charged with providing Risen with information about CIA plots against Iran. The ruling of this fascist court destroys confidentiality and is intended to end all leaks of the government’s crimes to media.
What Americans have learned in the 21st century is that the US government lies about everything and breaks every law. Without whistleblowers, Americans will remain in the dark as “their” government enserfs them, destroying every liberty, and impoverishes them with endless wars for Washington’s and Wall Street’s hegemony.
Snowden harmed no one except the liars and traitors in the US government. Contrast Washington’s animosity against Snowden with the pardon that Bush gave to Dick Cheney aide, Libby, who took the fall for his boss for blowing the cover, a felony, on a covert CIA operative, the spouse of a former government official who exposed the Bush/Cheney/neocon lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.
Whatever serves the tiny clique that rules america is legal; whatever exposes the criminals is illegal.
That’s all there is to it.

Trans-Pacific Partnership and Monsanto
Something is looming in the shadows that could help erode our basic rights and contaminate our food. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) has the potential to become the biggest regional Free Trade Agreement in history, both in economic size and the ability to quietly add more countries in addition to those originally included. As of 2011 its 11 countries accounted for 30 percent of the world’s agricultural exports. Those countries are the US, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Canada, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Viet Nam. Recently, Japan has joined the negotiations.
Six hundred US corporate advisors have had input into the TPP. The draft text has not been made available to the public, press or policy makers. The level of secrecy around this agreement is unparalleled. The majority of Congress is being kept in the dark while representatives of US corporations are being consulted and privy to the details.
The chief agricultural negotiator for the US is the former Monsanto lobbyist, Islam Siddique. If ratified the TPP would impose punishing regulations that give multinational corporations unprecedented right to demand taxpayer compensation for policies that corporations deem a barrier to their profits….
Though TPP content remains hidden, here are some things we do know:…..
The labeling of foods containing GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) will not be allowed. Japan currently has labeling laws for GMOs in food. Under the TPP Japan would no longer be able to label GMOs. This situation is the same for New Zealand and Australia. In the US we are just beginning to see some progress towards labeling GMOs. Under the TPP GMO labels for US food would not be allowed.

Previously stated, Syria’s war is nothing close to being domestic. With Saudi Arabia, Qatar, US and other European interests backing the secularists rebels, the Russians, Iranians and Hezbollah backing President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and the Islamists from Iraq and other regions, at times defined and mixed with secularists, everyone is essentially looking to snatch their piece of the pie when Assad’s regime crumbles.
Unfortunately for the West and its quest to seek secularist influence, the United Nations reported on Tuesday that Islamists in the rebel faction “al-Nusra” have received more members as well as equipment in recent months. Since pledging their adherence to the main faction al-Qaeda, their response has obviously been a positive one for fighters. This appears more and more to be a massive sectarian war coming to the works – Sunni rebels versus Shiites – which are ultimately defending the Assad regime.
McClatchy wrote, “Religious and sectarian extremism is worsening on both sides as tactics grow more savage, the report said, with sharp rises in hostage taking, the use of underage combatants, sexual violence and forced displacement.” From mid-January to mid-May, UN officials compiled over 400 interviews and other materials to create the recent detailed report. Most importantly, the report labels how dangerous the sectarian war is becoming, adding how it could lead to ruthless killing of communities.
The UN pointed a finger at both the Assad regime and rebels for immoral tactics. Assad’s people have been found to conduct torture techniques and keep individuals in infested prisons, which are immensely overcrowded and use of sexual aggression. Probably one of the more immoral acts is “forced disappearance”; this is when Syrians literally vanish without a trace and are either never found or are discovered deceased in random areas. “For example, turning up among the 200 bodies that were dumped in Aleppo’s Queiq waterway.”
Interestingly, besides rhetoric that violence within the rebel opposition is mainly from Islamist extremists, the UN reported that unnecessary violence is a product of the opposition as a whole. “The report offered no good guy-bad guy narrative – indeed, the rebels were blamed for many of the same tactics as the regime,” which if anything, is the exact opposite of what the West’s narrative has been on Syria. Syrian rebels have committed sectarian violence, kidnappings, thieving through houses and other aggressive acts.
Not to label all Syrian opposition as al-Nusra types, some are far more secularist. However the UN report did find that Nusra’s presence has seemed attractive compared to others, explaining part of the increase in size of the faction. “Foreign fighters with jihadist inclinations, often arriving from neighboring countries, continued to reinforce its ranks,” the UN-sponsored report notes.
A prominent al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri told Syrian rebels to unite behind each other on Thursday. Zawahri said, “Lions of the Levant, unite around this honorable goal and rise above party affiliations,” while calling out the US for wanting to influence the region. “America, its agents and allies want you to shed your blood and the blood of your children and women to bring down the criminal Baathist regime, and then set up a government loyal to them and to safeguard Israel’s security,” Zawahri explained, calling for the solidarity of Syrian rebels to combat such opposition.
