4-minute video: Real global terrorism HAS ALWAYS BEEN empire/colonialism, always with criminal rhetoric for ‘freedom,’ ‘civilization,’ ‘love of Jesus’ as millions killed, trillions looted

res ipsa loquitur: facts speak for themselves

4-minute reminder of colonial history from Films for Action:

The Roman Empire fell in tragic-comedy; gluttonous plutocrats demanding literal worship as “divine” until critical mass among the people rejected such ridiculous subversion of former Roman virtue. The most prolific Roman historian, Livy, witnessed Rome’s transition into dictatorial empire with Augustus Caesar as first emperor. In his preface to address 700 years of Roman history:

“I have no doubt that the earliest origins and the immediately succeeding period will give less delight to the majority of readers who are hurrying to these recent times in which the might of a most powerful people has long been destroying itself.

… I shall seek this additional reward for my labor (recounting all Rome’s history) so that I may turn away from the contemplation of the evils that our age has seen for so many years.” – The History of Rome, Preface

As in Rome’s fall, the United States is a tragic-comedy of its founding ideals of limited government under our Constitution, and Enlightenment ideals of freedom for all in a meritocratic society. The United States today is the leading global criminal empire among the so-called “former” colonial powers; ridiculous in Emperor’s New Clothes obvious crimes for anyone caring to look at the facts:

These crimes annually cost millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted, with recent history continuing literal centuries of US lie-began Wars of Aggression that involved your families in two horrific global wars for colonial empire.

This quest for colonial empire merely changed names in the “Cold War,” and now under propaganda of “bringing freedom” and “fighting terrorism.” Consider these fully documented points that prove the “War on Terror” is a lie to cover for empire (for comprehensive history, I recommend this brief version, and this extensively documented comprehensive version):

ISIS is a .01% creation to incite fear against all Muslims (here, here, here), but never ever ever ever ever does ISIS state what would bring down the governments of the US, UK, and Israel: the Emperor’s New Clothes obvious  truth that We the People would embrace and use to arrest our own would-be emperors: ongoing unlawful wars, fundamental fraud to call debt as “money,” and continuous corporate media lies.

But you recognize this history as exactly what you’ve already learned, yes?

To remind you further in just two minutes of reading:

We were all born into a century of total deaths from government violence of over 230 million human beings. After two world wars, the US was the chief author of the treaty that makes war unlawful unless attacked by another nation’s military. As the links below document in conservative and now non-controversial history, current US wars continue a pattern of lie-started and unlawful wars for empire:

  1. The US regularly violated treaties with Native Americans, as well as manipulating their meaning for the purpose of stealing their land (literally over 300 violated treaties).
  2. US President Polk lied to Congress to initiate a War of Aggression in Mexico. The result was the US taking 40% of Mexico in 1848. This occurred despite Abraham Lincoln’s crystal-clear explanation as a member of Congress that the Adams-Onis Treaty placed the “border dispute” 400 miles within land forever promised to Mexico and forever promised as outside any US claim.
  3. The US violated our treaty with Hawaii and stole their country in 1898.
  4. The US reneged on promises of freedom after the Spanish American War to impose colonialism on the Philippines, and install US-friendly dictators in Cuba. US military slaughtered resisters, calling them yesterday’s version of “terrorists.”
  5. The US entered WW1 upon no national security threat to the US and put the 3rd party presidential candidate in prison for public speeches questioning the war.
  6. The CIA had several covert wars; perhaps most important in today’s context of war on Iran: “Operation Ajax” that overthrew Iran’s democracy and installed a US-friendly and brutal dictator.  When that dictator was overthrown and Iran refused another, the US aided Iraq to unlawfully invade and attack Iran from 1980-1988; killing up to a million Iranians. If the US lied and acted twice to unlawfully overthrew Iran’s democracy within many of our own lifetimes, shouldn’t we assume first another lie-started unlawful war today?
  7. The Vietnam War occurred after the US allowed the cancellation of an election to unify the country, as escalated with the Gulf of Tonkin incident: false intelligence at best, but then manipulated into a false-flag event for a “defensive” war.
  8. Perhaps most disturbing is the King Family civil suit that found the US government guilty in the assassination of Dr. King. Corporate media, including our text publishers, omit this history. The King family’s conclusion is that Martin was assassinated to prevent his “Occupy DC” plan beginning for the summer of 1968 to end his version of today’s wars.
  9. We now know from Congressional reports that all “reasons” for war with Iraq were known to be false as they were told.
  10. The two “reasons” for war with Iran are as false as the “reasons” for war with Iraq: Iran never threatened Israel, and Iran’s nuclear energy and medicine programs are IAEA-verified as completely safe and lawful.

Perhaps this famous quote makes better sense now:

“Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  – George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Vol. 1.

What is a solution?

I continue to assert a proven, obvious, and legal method:

  • Arrests of .01% “leaders” for obvious crimes centering in war, money and lies (4-part series on arrests with videos).
  • Leveraging a reclaimed media, continue arrests with generous plea bargains and Truth & Reconciliation for testimony, documentary evidence, and physical evidence to best put the “Big Picture” together in preparation to build the brighter future for all Earth’s inhabitants’ success.
  • SOLUTIONS: the .01% with corporate media have suppressed solutions documented beginning with Benjamin Franklin how government can abundantly operate without taxes: monetary and credit reform allow the public to have near-instant prosperity: full-employment, zero public deficits and debt, the best infrastructure we can imagine, falling prices, and release of public TRILLIONS held in “rainy day” accounts.

    four more pieces of the jigsaw puzzle which portrays Empire as the parasitical vampire-squid it is…
    four drone ops who could not deny their consciences any longer, and had to confess to their part in krimes against humanity…
    now -without charges, without trials, without judgments- they have their bank accounts and credit cards frozen by the gummint for having the temerity to pull back the veil…
    four heroes being martyred by Empire for daring to speak truth to power…

    just *when* do we officially call it a dictatorial, korporate police/military state ?
    that, right there, should be evidence enough…

    Whats equally important is the propaganda, about how well everything is, anyone contradicting this “everything is well” is scorned and riddicouled, because the Gov. wants the reality closed.
    And the people of Rome is as the Yankees, blind, both refused to see the reality right infront of your own eyes, even the economic propaganda is equally to the ancient Rome.
    And they even used the term, if we dont have an enemy, we create one.
    aka the UssA.

    Yea, there is Nothing new, the layout may change, but the politics dont.
    Truth is, this makes me worried, because the effect will be brutal, and civil war is the next phace in the imperial banana republic, because that what they are testing out right now in Europa, asymetric warfare.
    While the MSM bomberds them with contradictions, lies and fabricated storys, incl Islam.
    But of course, the Yankees need an enemy, and the Muslims is the target.

    Gideon Polya, an Australian researcher, has added up the ‘excess deaths’ caused by Western policy over the centuries. The numbers are staggering. Undoubtedly the glorious ‘West’ is a sort of death-cult, not unlike its progeny Daash, where genocide is not just permissible, but eternally lusted after. The ecological collapse that will end humanity entirely this century, would seem to be the apotheosis of Western evil. Perhaps, after all, they are not the same species, the elites, as the rest of us. Some explanation for such gargantuan Evil (leaving aside the lunacy of it declaring itself ‘Good’)must be discovered, if only to instruct other sapient beings elsewhere in the cosmos.

      The Try to BALANCE “Each & Everything” is more then Curious ! By Citing “Western evil” , You Plant “Eastern evil” in the minds of Readers ! The Only legal “CONTRADICTION” is “GOOD : Evil” ! But Poor Zionist “philosopher” SPINOZA invented the “ATTRIBUTAL NONSENSE”

    Jews invented terrorism. They invented communism. Who ever issues the currency, owns the government. Its not rocket science people…its a fight between liberty and tyranny and the people behind the tyranny are Talmudists, who control the banks, Wall Street, the media…everything, especially Congress and the oval office. Obama is a destroyer. He is not an American.

    “We intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed, not ‘deconstructed’ but destroyed.

    Even if reason tells us, even shouts with all its force the very absurdity of this confrontation between the small and insignificant people of Israel [i.e., all Jewry worldwide, not just “the State of Israel”] and the rest of humanity… as absurd, as incoherent and as monstrous as it may seem, we are engaged in close combat between Israel and the Nations ~ and it can only be genocidal and total because it is about our and their identities.” ~ Yitzhak Attia, Israel Magazine, April 2003

    “The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.
    In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.”

    — Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx,
    ‘La Revue de Paris’, p.574, published June 1, 1928

    yep…its those Muslims.

  • Aug 26, 2015 How the West Re-colonized China

    The “Chinese dragon” of the last two decades may be faltering but it is still hailed by many as an economic miracle. Far from a great advance for Chinese workers, however, it is the direct result of a consolidation of power in the hands of a small clique of powerful families, families that have actively collaborated with Western financial oligarchs.

    With reports emerging that China has signed on to Russia’s military coalition in Syria at the same time that the Chinese are signing new cooperation agreements with the US, the question is once again being raised: What is the nature of China-US rivalry?


  • Well, a blog for folks who hate and are, essentially, intimated by Jewish and American genius. Pathetic.

    • Carl_Herman

      Well, A Walker, a comment from a folk who covers for colonialism in our world of today, best legally categorized as unlawful “Wars of Aggression”!

      You, of course, will never ever ever ever ever address the facts within this article. But go ahead and surprise us: what factual claims in the article are somehow “hate” in your assessment?

      You won’t answer, of course.

      • How about some spit with extra phlegm in it? That’s the only answer you and your ilk deserve.

        • Carl_Herman

          That’s what I thought: all you have is repulsive insults without any factual substance. Thanks for choosing your side: that of hurling filth at the most important policies of life and death.

          Thank you for separating yourself from us; it’s time you have a realm for that kind of relationship among others, and we have one of intelligent consideration of objective facts, respect for different perspectives, and open consideration of public policy.

          That said, the window for your final choice is still open.

          But not for long.

          Choose wisely for the future you most care to live in; you’ll have it, bro.
