#Election2016, Waiting for Superman
What was my favorite cartoon when I was a kid? Here is my favorite line, “For Truth, Justice and the American way,” to give you a hint. It’s Superman. I realize that Superman was created during a dark time in this country, 1938.
“…crime and economic collapse spread over the land as war loomed in the distance. Men sought dilligently for work to support their families, the Mob seized their claws on whatever they could, and in Washington; the President worked long hours repairing the critical state our fractured country was in. Yet, Americans managed to hold firm to hope, setting aside the worries of the day – we found peace of mind and joy at the movies, on the radio, and in the printed page.
“Then, two men from Cleveland introduced us to a legend. America would find a renewed hope and strength in their caped icon. The common man didn’t feel so small and helpless anymore. Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegal gave the Nation a hero, not from America like Babe Ruth nor of this world like Tarzan; but, a champion from far beyond the stars… from the planet Krypton,”said the Superman homepage.
We need a Superman so badly now. After almost 15 years of war, we have waited. Many of us have witnessed lie after lie and followed the stories where ever they lead. We have watched as our leaders have fabricated lies that have killed and displaced millions, destroyed cities, stolen from the people who they have killed. There has been so much corruption with a delicate, finely laid facade over it, one that discourages questioning. It is mafioso in nature. The facade says something like, “if you want your life, don’t look here. Don’t talk about these issues. Don’t print them, don’t publish them, don’t question.” There are at least quite a few hundred if not thousand people who still do. We work every day to understand what is going on and why.
The interesting thing is that these people, those of us who watch, are not sought after, we are avoided and feared. It is like when information comes to the surface that counters the propaganda, it is ignored and people are threatened. There is a very insidious game going on in the background. It is a fleecing of the American public, both of resources through the military and governmental budgets benefiting corporations who are using our military for personal and corporate profits and of leaders who control and manipulate the news so that none of it gets out in the mainstream, even when there are direct sources for the stories, such as incriminating, verified emails, statements, photographs, etc. It is overt, if you are watching.
Most people are watching the pundits on Super Tuesday, thinking about who we are going to vote for, as many of us are having our ballots stolen using Cross Check, especially if we fall into one of the “less desirable” voter groups – Hispanic, Black, Arab, Asian, etc. For viewers of main stream coverage, it is bread and circuses. It is not who has the best plan for America, it is who can say the best line or who can make the other look questionable enough or say all of the wonderful things the viewer would like to hear with little action if any behind the words.
Then enter in the Super Delegates and even delegates for that matter. If your vote was not stolen by Cross Check, it may be superseded by the delegates and Super Delegates who actually have the right to vote against the voters. Why even vote then? But that is too harsh, we must participate to have a “say.”
Do we really have a “say?” Where is the recourse for government officials using their positions to benefit others financially while committing crimes?
Theft is a crime. Stealing from another, whether it be a person, corporation or country, it is a crime.
Thinking about Libya, today and then listening to Hillary Clinton speak was a dichotomy. The whole Benghazi case was a lie. The most important story was regime change for profit. It was supported by Clinton who did nothing to thwart the plans of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, despite knowing his intentions. From an email retrieved from Clinton’s server, according to Foreign Policy Journal, “The email identifies French President Nicholas Sarkozy as leading the attack on Libya with five specific purposes in mind: to obtain Libyan oil, ensure French influence in the region, increase Sarkozy’s reputation domestically, assert French military power, and to prevent Gaddafi’s influence in what is considered ‘Francophone Africa.’ http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2016/01/06/new-hillary-emails-reveal-true-motive-for-libya-intervention/
“Most astounding is the lengthy section delineating the huge threat that Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves, estimated at “143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver,” posed to the French franc (CFA) circulating as a prime African currency. In place of the noble sounding “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) doctrine fed to the public, there is this “confidential” explanation of what was really driving the war [emphasis mine]”
So basically the French wanted to steal oil and gold from the Libyans and ousted Gaddafi to do so. In turn they killed hundreds if not thousands of Libyans and stole from those who survived the right to a prosperous life, unless they became a criminal and supported the crime.
That is not love based or nice, and also illegal for that matter when brought into a local court. What gives these international players the right to violate every law, every commandment, every teaching for their profit?
Obscurity. It seems we are out-matched. Will criminals prevail? Look at the war in Iraq, as of yet there has been no war-crimes tribunal for the killing of thousands for theft. They knew there were no WMDs and tried to discredit anyone who went against them. It was intentional. The Ukrainian coup was for big corporations to move into Eastern Ukraine as is evidenced by the speech of Victoria Nuland at a business conference and then her actions later at Maidan, as well as her “F### the EU” comment, and we still believe them?
Now Syria, our alliance with Saudi Arabia, the same country that financed the 9/11 attacks. Here is a great quote relating to the 28pages that Congress will not release to the public. “The U.S. government doesn’t want the public to know that the Saudis financed the 9/11 attacks because we provide the Saudis with billions in military aid,” said former Democratic Senator Bob Graham last year.
How relevant is this also to the war in Syria? Who is fueling the extremism? Why did we go into Iraq and Afghanistan and not into Saudi Arabia? They had good criminal friends in high places.
It goes on and on, government after government Honduras, Egypt, Israel and now even Argentina just paid vultures. Many more have fallen under criminal influence. Some still fight like South Africa and Syria.
The key question is how do we create a baseline of enforceable laws for the world? Theft is theft, but how can we enforce it, and how can we enforce criminal international law violations? As of now, we are still waiting for Superman. Hopefully, when we find him, he is not the Joker in Superman clothing.
