Fourth of July Lies

by: June C. Terpstra
Sunday July 3, 2016 - 19:41

July 03, 2016

Be it with the farce the US has made of democracy and humanitarianism or US manufactured terror wars and assassinations the greatest of the Fourth of July lies told globally is that the USA is a free country that liberates “others” so it’s citizens can remain “free”. In actuality, the USA is the country that mass incarcerates and kills its own citizens more than any other country while creating illusions of freedom. The American revolutionaries of the 1700’s sponsored a new nation with a constitution built on genocide and “native removal", slavery of Africans, and consistent repression of workers. Since World War II, the United States actually dropped bombs on countless countries. These include but are not limited to: China 1945-46, Korea 1950-53, China 1950-53, Guatemala 1954,Indonesia 1958, Cuba 1959-60, Guatemala 1960, Congo1964, Peru 1965, Laos 1964-73, Vietnam 1961-73,Cambodia 1969-70, Guatemala 1967-69, Grenada 1983,Lebanon 1984, Libya 1986, El Salvador 1980s, Nicaragua1980s, Panama 1989, Iraq 1991-1999, Sudan 1998, Afghanistan 1998-present, and Yugoslavia 1999, Iraq 1998-present, Libya 2011, and ongoing in Syria and Yemen. The United States has also assisted in coups throughout the world with an on-going focus on Latin America where the CIA was responsible for assassinations of political heads of state.

For over five hundred years whether it’s Europeans calling themselves Catholics or Puritans; Europeans calling themselves Zionists; or the capitalist crusaders of the USA it’s never a good thing for indigenous populations to have invaders "settle" on indigenous land to which the Euros say they have a “divine right”. Their mantra of "God told me it’s mine" means the shit is hitting the fan for the people of the land.

The descendants of these Europeans have a chaos and destruction campaign going on today in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Somalia and the Sudan. The war hawks are down right rabid when it comes to taking over the Middle East. They also have their sights on Africa and they continue to go back to South America for coups against those leaders who have risen against the US hegemony.

De-programming the minds and the hearts from the powerful propaganda machine that poisons the intellectual and emotional capacities of people in the USA is an arduous task. From birth to death cognitive and emotional dysfunction is embedded within and imprinted onto the “Exceptional American”, who has been exceptionally uneducated, exceptionally overstuffed and ill fed, and exceptionally programmed for violence. The national religion, an ugly mix of Calvinism and evangelical Christianity, is the ultimate expression of greed and manifestation of death wishes destroying any human love for the poor and downtrodden.

Most “home grown” in the USA have not been taught the essential features and underlying intentions of the US constitution: centralized power at the national level by a marriage between corporations and the state, a system of checks and balances which strengthens private power, a system of separation of power which prevents a simple majority rule by and for the people, with an eroding bill of rights which protects property but which fails to guarantee participation by the people). The obedient folks in the U.S.A. are exposed to hundreds of Hollywood films, after-school specials and school projects that prioritize USA dominance, rabid consumption at the cost of the planet, and the repeated story of “The Jewish Holocaust” with a capital “H” as opposed to the “always forget” facts of Indigenous Holocausts of North America, Africa, Palestine, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and Syria promoting the take-over of as many countries as possible by the very real axis of evil, real dictators, and real gangsters—the corporate-government elites of the USA, Britain and Saudi-Israelia. The people of the USA, Europe and Israel do not see themselves as the oppressors, the occupiers, the killers and the torturers they really are. They have convinced themselves of their superiority in all things and their exceptionalism to all the rules of decency, ethics and even law. The moral education system they have deconstructed forms a cognitive lens which views greed and aggression for “capitalist democracy” as their right.

As the greedy power elites manipulate legislation against immigration in their home countries while increasing criminalization to profit private prisons they simultaneously give the orders to bomb and plunder. They enslave the poor with debts while giving them “equal opportunities” to work in their sweatshops, agri-businesses, oil fields, diamond, copper and gold mines. The privatization of the prison industry (corporate owned prisons funded with tax dollars) creates an entirely new industry, which is dependent upon filling prisons cells to make a profit. This is accompanied by the equally disturbing trend towards the use of extremely cheap prison labor forces that make more profits for private industries than even sweatshops produce.

The same CIA cited by the Church Committee investigation on the revealing that 140 of CIA personnel consisted of professional propagandists who fed false stories about Cuba and the Soviet Union to the press back in the day are even more active in every from of media imaginable. The CIA co-opts countless journalists, including some of the biggest names in the business to pump its propaganda stories into our media be it the right wing, center or left wing. In today’s media sloganeering always support the troops because freedom isn’t free, and “we” fight over “there” so “we” don’t have to fight here because war is peace and safety/security is better than freedom.

The hate campaigns of past and present are slick and the propaganda program in the military and the media are one and the same: Hate the native, kill the native, and steal the land. The government media wing employs henchmen of all political ideologies who prance and dance for their masters in social media, mainstream media and independent media. They engineer pseudo journalism outlets, academic programs and vacuous propaganda films intended to scare white Americans and white Europeans so they will support “nuking” commies/Russians, Muslims, the poor and people of color to “kingdom come”. Today’s propaganda from Trotskyites turned neo-conservatives and neo-liberals hawks are as factual as the myths of the Fourth of July.

Let us not attempt to recreate or reform systems of domination. This tired planet cannot survive the games that the greedy play. To offer the people scams of debt based capitalism, sweatshop communism, neo-liberal hawkism, neo-conservative elitism, anti-racist racism, and liberal austerity is obscene, as these methods produce nothing but more poverty for the majority. The time for dialogue with the system is over. Our strategies now must be focused on the many acts of creation, invention, rebellion and resistance that it will take for us to live our visions of self-determining communities in liberated territories.

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

HOW MUCH CORRUPTION CAN DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
