Islamic Republic of Iran

Tehran, Iran

Now THAT is "hate speech"::: The USA criminal regime (always aided by the so-called “white supremacist terrorist” Trudeau of the moment in Canada) openly threatens a mass war of murder and destruction against Iran, a modern state that it has attacked with aggressive sanctions during four decades, for daring in 1979 to oust a 1953 CIA-installed puppet administration.

Iran is a unique and diverse modern society that wants security and sovereignty, two forbidden commodities in the USA-dominated Middle East. Iran has 83 million citizens. 

Iran lost approximately 200,000 lives in the 1980s, during the USA-sponsored Iran-Iraq war. Iran supports the Palestinian struggle, and the independence of Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen, which are viciously attacked by the USA-et-al war enterprise for the "crime" of wanting independence from USA domination. 

The on-going war crimes perpetrated by USA-supported terrorists in Syria and USA-Canada-supported Saudi military in Yemen are off-scale, comparable only to USA atrocities in Latin America, Asia...

Stop the USA criminal regime from making more war and from supporting more terrorists and exploiters on every habitable continent.

Force the USA by public opinion to follow international law and to respect national sovereignty. We owe it to ourselves in the West to stop the USA's mass criminality.

My today's list of Trump PROS AND CONS

I get a lot of heat for seeing positive signs in Trump. But I do. It's what I honestly see. I may be totally wrong. If his actual acts contradict the positive indicators after we have had time to see statistics, then I will certainly admit my error.

Why does Trump-hate have to be a religion that we all follow? (I reserve the emotions of love and hate for the people I know personally.)

I like Trump's consistent spoken messages about:

1. Wanting to get along with the emerging powers Russia and China. (link)
2. Wanting to move away from regime-change wars and globalist interventions (except to negotiate new deals to advantage the domestic economy). I like that he wants other countries to pay for NATO, because that will weaken NATO, etc.
3. Letting go of (accepting the resignation of) his anti-Iran maniac. (Trump keeps saying nonsense about Iran but hopefully reality will prevent an actual military intervention.)
4. Trashing of the CO2 nonsense and the drive for a carbon economy for the globalists. (link)
5. Constant and correct criticism of the corporate media.
6. Intention to economically and infrastructure enable the inner cities, to solve the social ills, he says. (However, this may well be just a scam...? link)
7. Disregard for political correctness. Much needed in the spiraling madness of "words that wound".
8. The fact that Washington DC hates him and all these insiders work against him.

I worry about:

a. His possible approach to Syria and Iran. But I think reality will prevent military escalation.
b. His treatment of Mexican immigration (and will it actually be worst than what Obama was doing? link).
c. What his dealings with Israel will actually be. (link)
d. His apparent lack of respect for international law! (torture, assassinations, whistle-blowers, economic sanctions, etc.) (and will it actually be worst than what Obama has done?)

But he has not actually done much yet. And good that his stupid blanket travel ban against 7 countries has been reversed by the courts.

Amnesty International has discredited itself more than usual with its Syria propaganda

How easy is it for the US regime to buy out parts of Amnesty International for use in its war propaganda against Syria? 
Answer: This easy! 

Amnesty International has the resources to send crews of young workers into Ottawa (Canada) neighbourhoods for door-to-door propaganda just prior to putting out its sham "report".

Amnesty International exploits the good will of ordinary concerned citizen, in order to support US-regime war campaigns.

Causes of Quebec mosque terrorism

By Denis G. Rancourt, PhD

My blame list for the Quebec mosque terrorism, in order of importance:

  1. The increasingly unjust and authoritarian enforced class hierarchy in Canada, which attacks all in all of us: our very minds, families, communities, cultures, personalities, freedoms of expression, privacy, independence... using all the state institutions of education, media, law, enforcement, surveillance, health... (We become maintained zombies without independent thought or feeling.)
  2. Together with Canada's vicious foreign policy of global exploitation and war aggression, aligned with US dominance-imposition mass crimes and military threats in Latin America, Africa, Middle East, Eurasia...
  3. Specifically, the Quebec state and corporate media (prominently including Radio Canada CBC) campaigns that constantly and heinously vilify Muslim cultural and political independence that is rightly critical of the Quebec state, as exemplified by the unending barrage against Adil Charkaoui [1].
  4. The Canadian state use of "Security Certificates" that destroys Muslim families and communities across the country, and that serves the state's political and propaganda agendas without any societal benefit. (And the associated "security" assault-campaigns against Muslim communities.)

Brutal reality about the immigration-policy motives of dominant states

By Denis G. Rancourt, PhD

I'm going to express this controversial generalization.

The omnipresent propaganda of immigration is just that: propaganda. Immigration is virtually always solely to benefit the host country. It is never an act of charity, except incidentally for its propaganda value. Family reunification included.

Immigration reception by aggressor nations is a mechanism to recruit collaborators in geopolitical campaigns in some cases, economic policy in others, and an aggression by theft of human resources in still others. In addition, immigration loss is generally harmful to the attacked country, and as such can be a weapon of war. 

The question should not be how to "help" with immigration, which is a deceptive question, but rather how to stop covert and overt military and economic aggression led by the "free world", and how to actually help populations in the regions where they are devastated by both foreign regime-change designs and brutal globalist-led economic exploitation.

Impulsive Trump/Obama policies [1], therefore, if applied as actual bans, are harmful to the USA and will not last or even mostly not be implemented. Such is the cruel reality of empire dominance. Trump is a master manipulator of public sentiment but he will soon settle down regarding immigration.

Socio-Political Analysis of the Racism Charge against Outing of Racism

By Denis G. Rancourt, PhD

(This article was first published on Dissident Voice.)

When one is critical of the human-rights violations of the state of Israel, there follows a vehement charge of “antisemitism”. When one supports institutional measures to counter systemic racism, there follows a charge of “reverse racism”. And when a white person is critical of a black person’s apparent support for systemic racism, there again follows a charge of “racism”.

In all these examples, a charge of racism is levied in response to words used to criticize actual physical racism occurring on a spectrum from outright violations of personal safety to exclusion from status and resources.

The reason that such fallacious responses have sting is because there is a strong cultural taboo that racist language is as nefarious as violent physical racism itself. In present middle-class Western society, there is a pathological extreme intolerance against any expression that has cognitive similarity to racist expression.

The said taboo is not as present in the working-class because the economically stressed classes live a high degree of physical and status discrimination themselves. This discrimination is a higher priority to them than identity-tied system-ideology maintenance via personal investments in language policing.

The said taboo is poison because it precludes needed frank discussions and arguments about actual physical racism and hierarchical dominance. It also contributes to creating a class divide between those manipulated to adopt the identity politics of language purity and those who have less to gain from self-censorship and who “fucking need to speak”.

Thus, the taboo against racist and racist-sounding language is of great utility in enforcing an excessively totalitarian social hierarchy. Therefore, the said taboo is systemically promoted and enforced by major institutional instruments, including universities and the legal system.

In a healthy democratic society, free discussion between individuals and classes reigns and shapes a sustainable distribution of power and status. In a defective society, totalitarian encroachment is enabled by class divisions and by suppression of free expression. And there can be runaway encroachment when there are feedback pathologies such as when criticism of racism itself is reflexively tainted with the stigma of racism, or when social-media comments lead to terminations of employment, and so on. Excessive and widespread correctness policing is a recipe for disaster.

In that limited sense, the Trump and Brexit phenomena may well be expressions of natural societal repair mechanisms against runaway totalitarianism, rather than causal factors towards “fascism”. The said phenomena may be “indicators” of totalitarian encroachment by being indicators of responses against totalitarian encroachment (loss of democracy, globalization).

If so, the more the establishment bosses attempt to impose and leverage class-based containment against free expression and free political participation, the greater the danger of large future negative consequences for society as a whole.
