Michelle Obama used the US president’s weekly address yesterday to justify US military entering Nigeria (history/context here), pretending that her husband and she care about 276 Nigerian girls claimed to be kidnapped.
This is psychopathic pretense because the US reneges on every promise to end poverty that would save one million children from gruesomely slow and painful deaths every month (~20 – 30,000 daily). I witnessed both parties’ “leaderships” only and always lie and dishonor their promises to end poverty as a lobbyist with RESULTS over two World Summits with heads of state.
Since 9/11, US reneged promises to end poverty have killed over 100 million children, twice the number of children enrolled in pre-kindergarten to 12th grade in the US.
Since the 1%’s reneged promises from just 1998, the total deaths from preventable poverty is conservatively greater than from all wars, revolutions, murders, accidents, and suicides in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Since the 1990 World Summit for Children where the promise to end poverty was (again) sincerely pledged, total deaths from poverty eclipse all the above categories of death in all known human history.*
In addition, last September US “leadership” shed crocodile tears over 426 dead Syrian children, while all evidence shows they were murdered by US terrorist minions to justify US military attack on Syria.
And this psychopathy is US business as usual for lie-began unlawful Wars of Aggression.
The leverage point to remove the 1% is for those of us among the 99% with arrest authority to exercise it for “emperor has no clothes” obvious ongoing War Crimes and murders of US soldiers who were lied-into criminal wars.
The 2014 Worldwide Wave of Action (and here) began on the April 4 anniversary of Martin King’s assassination by the US government (civil court trial verdict), with this operation completing ~July 4 (Martin’ 2-minute plea to you). Its purpose:
- Expose 1% oligarchs in the US and elsewhere as OBVIOUS criminals centering in war, money, and media (also in ~100 other crucial areas).
- Cause their surrender through arrests or Truth & Reconciliation.
- Initiate true freedom for all Earth’s inhabitants to explore ready breakthroughs in economics (links here) and technology, and discover what it is to be human without psychopathic criminals who joke about killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.
*Assuming 15 years of poverty deaths totaling 225 million and 23 years at 400 million (poverty deaths have decreased over the past 20 years) compared to the estimates of 160 million war deaths from Scaruffi, P., Wars and Casualties of the 20th and 21st Centuries, and 230 million from Leitenberg, M, Deaths in Wars and Conflicts in the 20th Century, (along with the relatively smaller numbers for murders, accidents, and suicides). Total global deaths in recorded history is probably a safe estimate given a global population of ~1.6 billion in 1900. My assignment for high school students on ending poverty with all of the documentation: The Economics of Ending Poverty. Despite the investment to save a million children’s lives each month from preventable poverty being just 0.7% of our gross national income, despite that every historical case of ending poverty reduces population growth rates, and despite US promises to make that investment at global summits, the 1% “leadership” in government and corporate media renege and ignore all promises to end this crushing torture, these excruciating and prolonged deaths of children.
