CNN Host Upset Phelps Chosen to Carry Flag

Oh the Humanity! CNN host upset Phelps chosen to carry flag.

CNN host upset Phelps chosen to carry flag. It’s not exactly like he was chosen; he was voted to carry the flag by the members of the US team. But what does that matter when you have a chance to be divisive and spew a nice fat load of politically correct propaganda.

Not only did the CNN host seem to find the teams democratically elected choice offensive, but also representative of what he deemed to be “hateful, xenophobic, and jingoistic.”

But the icing on the cake was that he suggested the Phelps was not qualified to carry the flag because he had been caught smoking pot, something the Left has been pushing hard for a long time to be legalized, as it should be in a truly free country (even a broken clock is right twice a day).


CNN Host Slams America’s Greatest Olympian Ever For Not Being Black, Muslim Woman

From Zero Hedge

Michael Phelps may be the greatest Olympian the world has ever known but for CNN host W. Kamau Bell, he is just a “tall, successful, rich white guy” who clearly didn’t “need the honor” of being chosen by his athlete peers as America’s flag-bearer. Instead, Bell exclaims, Ibtihaj Muhammad, a woman, an African-American and a Muslim to boot, should have been chosen because “right now America has enough tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great.”

After Phelps was chosen by his fellow Olympians, the U.S. Olympic Team tweeted proudly….

But American fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad is a different story . . . a woman, an African-American and a Muslim to boot. . . . (more)


Here’s an excerpt of what Mr. Bell said:

(CNN)Dear Michael Phelps,
 
Thank you! I really appreciate the fact that you have made — or will make — the right choice here. You haven’t announced it yet, but I’m sure you will soon.
 
I know you have a big machine behind you. With The Olympics coming up, it must be extremely hectic around you right now. It has to be difficult to contact all your trainers, coaches, business managers, talent managers, Hollywood agents, sponsors, counsellors, associated charities, foundations, staff, assistants, friends, family, boys clubs, and girls clubs to let them know that you have turned down such an honor.
 
Obviously, I am talking about what I hope will be your decision to decline the position as flag bearer in opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Rio De Janeiro on Friday. While you haven’t said this yet, I’m sure this is what you are going to do, because you are not only an Olympic hero, you are — by medal count — the Olympic hero. And yes, being asked to carry the flag is a big deal. I’m betting that even a star of your magnitude is still feeling the glow of being voted to carry the flag by your Olympic peers. But I know that you must know that there is a better choice to carry the flag — the athlete who came in second to you in the vote for flag bearer, fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad.
 
It shouldn’t be a big deal for you to give up your spot. For one thing, according to the Los Angeles Times, the vote was close. So Muhammad must have lots of fans among the athletes. And also, let’s be real here, Michael. It’s not like you need the honor.
 
With 22 Olympic medals, you are already the most decorated athlete in Olympic history. You already know how America feels about you. We even forgave that youthful indiscretion of being photographed smoking from a water pipe of the type that is often used for smoking marijuana. And we have forgiven those other youthful indiscretions (even the one that happened two years ago when you weren’t that youthful). . . . (more)

A Borderless World

A borderless world, a brave new world: Borderless for corporations and the hordes of unskilled, uneducated, third world immigrants they want to bring in to destroy the country, but not for you. Just like NAFTA brought open borders for corporations, but, on the other hand, if thought you were bringing something into the country from Mexico or Canada without paying tariffs, taxes, and duties, then you thought wrong.

If they can get the TTP passed, then we’ll all end up being wards of the state — spelled S-L-A-V-E-S. And if anyone but Trump gets elected president, then that is what you’ll get.


Congratulations Class Of 2016 You Are Screwed!

EU To Fine Nations for Rejecting Refugees

EU to fine nations for rejecting refugees. Well, if nothing has driven the EU to the point of disintegration, this ought to do it. Of course, as pretty much anyone can imagine, if Hillary were to be elected president, we’d all find ourselves in pretty much the same boat.


 

E.U. Will Hit Nations Rejecting Refugees With $300,000 Per Head Fine

From The Washington Free Beacon by

European nations that turn away refugees could be forced to pay roughly $300,000 in fines for each individual rejected, European Union officials are expected to announce Wednesday.

The plan is part of the European Commission’s plan to overhaul its current asylum rules that neared collapse last year after more than a million refugees and migrants flooded across E.U. borders, the Financial Times reported Tuesday.

The reshuffle is aimed at alleviating the strain on frontline nations, including Greece and Italy, that have grappled to absorb the heavy incursion of migrants.

Officials who saw the proposal in advance said the fine would act as a sanction on nations that refuse to adhere to the E.U.’s asylum system. While the exact penalty is still in flux, a diplomat said that it would amount to “hundreds of thousands of euros.” . . . (more)

Public support for the TPP drops as people become aware of what the ratification of the TPP would mean: An end to American sovereignty, and like NAFTA on steroids, more and more jobs shipped overseas; more and more Americans with no future.


A Great Awakening – Public Support for Fake “Free Trade” Deals Plunges in the U.S. and Europe

From Liberty Blitzkrieg by Michael Krieger

Public opposition to the sovereignty killing corporate giveaway marketed as a free trade deal known as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) has become so widespread that all the leading candidates for the U.S. Presidency are publicly against it. Specifically, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are virulently opposed, while Hillary Clinton is pretending to be against it in order to harvest votes.

Essentially, the more time the American public has to learn about this scam, the more they are against it. Which is precisely why the Obama administration wants to push it through as quickly as possible.

– From the post: Obama to Push Passage of TPP Trade Deal Despite Rising Public Opposition

One of the key themes here at Liberty Blitzkrieg over the past year or so, has been to highlight the fact that the plethora of “free trade” deals (TPP, TTIP and TISA) being promoted by the global robber barons are nothing more than fascist corporate handouts (links at the end). Calling them “free trade” deals is purely for PR, and primarily serves as a means for marketing these scams to the ignorant masses.

Fortunately, I have some good news to share. The public is not as ignorant as it used to be. There’s a massive awakening happening, and it’s sweeping these United States as well as Europe.

As Reuters reports in the article, Survey Shows Plunging Public Support for TTIP in U.S. and Germany:

Support for the transatlantic trade deal known as TTIP has fallen sharply in Germany and the United States, a survey showed on Thursday, days before Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Barack Obama meet to try to breathe new life into the pact. . . . (more)

I couldn’t put either book down.


Democracy Has Been Weaponized

From Mises Daily by Ralph Raico
[This article appears in the January-February 2016 issue of The Austrian.]

Hamiltontrumbull-crop

You may think you live in a Jeffersonian democracy, but it is, in fact, a Hamiltonian Oligarchy. No sooner was the Constitution ratified, than Alexander Hamilton, chief promoter of replacing the Articles of Confederation with the Constitution, got to work on undermining it. He fancied America as becoming a Mercantile Empire based on the British model that the Revolution had just been fought to be rid of.

THE AUSTRIAN: Among those of us who are very laissez-faire, Europe’s liberal nineteenth century seems like ancient history, and people like Richard Cobden seem to be incredibly far from what is now the mainstream. And yet, leftists seem to believe that “neoliberalism” (i.e., the ideology of “limited government”) is making gains everywhere. Can you put things into perspective for us? Historically speaking, how much cache does liberalism have right now?

RALPH RAICO: Yes, today Cobden is far from the mainstream, which is a pity. He was the best classical liberal (or libertarian) theorist of international relations who ever lived, and his incisive critiques of the greatest empire of his day, Britain’s, are totally pertinent to the greatest empire of our own time, America’s.

Leftists generally have been mistaken regarding our philosophy. What is called “neoliberalism” is in reality simply a center-right point of view, far from what authentic liberalism meant historically — so-called neoliberals include the Christian Democrats in Germany and Italy, for instance, and the Conservatives in Britain. The true anti-state position is represented by a number of relatively small groups, most of them associated with or inspired by the Mises Institute itself.

TA: In your lectures, you have noted that it was really the liberals who came up with “class analysis” which Marx later incorporated into his own work. What can we learn from this today?

512px-Abraham_Lincoln_by_Alexander_Helser,_1860-crop

The Civil war had nothing to do with slavery and had everything to do with graft and consolidation of power. It was about Crony Capitalism and keeping the agrarian South under the thumb of the industrial North. Lincoln referred to blacks as sub-human, and even supported an Illinois law preventing blacks from emigrating there. Had he lived he would have deported them all to Haiti and Africa. He had thousands of Northerners thrown in prison without charges or trial, and condoned Union mobs burning opposition newspapers to the ground, as well as breaking every rule of the then existing  Geneva Convention. First and foremost he was a war criminal and an enemy of the people.

RR: Liberal class analysis predated the Marxist version and in fact inspired it, as Marx and Engels freely admitted. It originated in France in the early nineteenth century, with the Industrialist school, but it permeates the whole history of liberalism and libertarianism, from Cobden and John Bright to Herbert Spencer, the great Gustave de Molinari, in America Albert Jay Nock and Frank Chodorov, and to the present day. It was central to the political outlook of Murray Rothbard. Liberal class analysis holds that history is indeed a struggle between two classes.

But these classes aren’t the “bourgeoisie” and the “proletariat,” as Marxism holds is the case in modern times. Rather, one group is composed of the beneficiaries of state action, the other of its victims. State subsidies and prohibitions, state-granted contracts and monopolies, tariffs, central banking and the manipulation of the currency, imperialism, above all preparing for and waging war — historically, the state’s preeminent business — these serve the interest of a favored few and are detrimental to the interests of everyone else.

TA: Much of Europe seems excited about belligerence toward Russia, combined with periodic attacks on African and Middle Eastern countries. Does the ghost of colonialism and nationalism still live among Europeans? Perhaps in some sort of mutated form?

RR: Mass democracy, as its nineteenth century liberal opponents foretold, inevitably devolves into a contest of contending forces, motivated by corrupt self-interest, either directly financial or ideological. (A superb dissection of this phenomenon, incidentally, is provided by my friend, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, in his Democracy: The God that Failed.) “Democracy” has become a concept weaponized by the US government in its global power struggles. . . .

Do pedophiles run the government?

Do pedophiles run the government? How did Dennis Hastert come from nowhere to be the Speaker of the House?

For the Military Industrial Complex, the Globalists, the Offshore Multi-National Corporatists, the Banksters,  or all lumped together as just plain Old School Mercantilists, or Empire, if you prefer; having bought and paid for, at your beck and call lackeys running the “of the people, by the people, for the people” government is standard operating procedure.

But what’s even better than bought and paid for is compromised because that hardly costs anything. Sure every now and then you might have to provide one of the lackeys in your stable some drugs or some young boys to play with, but other than that, the power exercised over them is the fear of exposure.

And why would politicians be drawn to pedophilia? Because they crave power: power over their young victims, power over the people, and just the pure joy of serving their masters in carrying out their dark deeds and dirty work as well as the power of being evil — the dark side of the force, if you will.

Smack Down: TPP Protester Hits Politician with Dildo for Raping the Country

TPP protester hits politician with dildo for raping the country

(ANTIMEDIA) On Thursday, a protester in New Zealand threw a pink dildo at a high-ranking politician to voice dissent against the recently signed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The multinational trade deal has drawn severe criticism around the world for what many say is the codification of corporate hegemony.

New Zealand’s economic development minister, Steven Joyce, was attending an event celebrating New Zealand’s upcoming Waitangi Day, a holiday to commemorate the creation of the nation. When he was talking to the media, a female protester launched the sex toy at the politician, hitting him square in the face.

That’s for raping our sovereignty. That’s for raping our country, because of the TPPA and selling away our rights and our freedom,” she said as she was carried away by police.

The TPP has been thoroughly condemned by activists and industrial, environmental, and labor organizations. The agreement, which includes “Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Canada, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, most critically Japan and potentially Korea,” the Washington Post notes, has been accused of providing protections for a wide range of industries. The text addresses pharmaceutical companies, financial services, and even sanitary standards for food.

TPP has also been condemned for its attempts to strangle internet freedom in favor of copyright protection for media giants. It also scorned for overlooking Malaysia’s immense human trafficking trade to include it in the deal.

One recent study found the deal could cost the United States 446,000 jobs, while another analysis concluded it will increase income inequality. Even the world bank has admitted the TPP will provide negligible economic benefits to the United States, Australia, and Canada.

The text of the TPP was kept secret over five years of negotiations, and the negotiations themselves have also been conducted without the public’s participation. The text was only released in November, and member nations signed the agreement in Auckland, New Zealand, this week. However, the TPP must undergo a two-year ratification process, and activists have vowed to continue fighting the bill’s final passage.

The deal has prompted ongoing protests, from Argentina, Chile, and Peru to Malaysia, Japan, United States, and New Zealand.

Steven Joyce, the minister hit with the pink dildo, has defended the TPP negotiations. “You can’t have a negotiation in the public domain without causing problems for the path of the negotiation,” he said.

He dismissed the woman who launched the dildo at him, making light of the situation. “We actually thought it was a little bit humorous at the end of it all … new experiences in politics everyday, it’s the privilege of serving,” he said, seemingly taunting the millions of humans around the world who understand that he and other politicians like him are, in fact, serving corporate privilege.

Obama signs TPP, giving power over our country to offshore multi-national corporations.

I’ve posted about the TPP before (see here and here), the TPA (see here, here, here, and here), and the TTIP (see here, here, and here).

If it’s ratified, this truly is the end of America.


BREAKING: Obama Just Quietly Signed the TPP

|

Obama just quietly signed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, one of the biggest multinational trade deals in history that aims to break down trade barriers between countries comprising 40 percent of the global economy, in New Zealand.

Yep. It’s done.

“We should get TPP done this year and give more American workers the shot at success they deserve and help more American businesses compete and win around the world,” Obama said.

Obama didn’t even sign it in person. He sent sent U.S. trade representative Michael Froman on his behalf.

Senator Jeff Sessions said the White House downplayed the news because the administration realizes how unhappy the public will be when the realization hits.

Via Washington Examiner:

“A trade deal is a contract, and it must be one that puts American workers’ interests first, not the interests of global elites,” Sessions said in a statement. “It is little surprise the administration is not showcasing today’s signing given its unpopularity with the American people.”

Only four others voted against fast tracking the deal with Sessions.

In addition:

A Tufts University study found the TPP will cost nearly 450,000 American jobs in the next nine years.

Obama will urge Congress to ratify it as soon as possible.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said:

“The American people have been left out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership from the very beginning and it shows in the resulting agreement. If this deal is enacted, the American people will be left behind as corporations benefit.”
