Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D.
Stuart Hooper is the only candidate for the House of Commons who opposes all kinds of austerity, from right-wing fiscal and wage austerity to left wing energy austerity. Hooper’s New Deal for the UK demands the rebuilding of infrastructure and industry, including a massive program to build modern housing, a rollback of all austerity measures, free university education for all Britons, the full funding of the National Health Service, and an £8 per hour minimum wage NOW – paid for by a 1% tax on the speculative turnover of the City of London, and financed by the nationalization of the Bank of England into a national bank. This includes an industrial renaissance for Scotland, Wales, and the north of England.
Stanislav Byshok of Moscow is one of the leading authorities on the rebirth of fascism in Ukraine in recent years. His background includes studies in psychology at Moscow State University, and attempting to monitor elections in Ukraine as an envoy of the Election Monitoring Organization of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS-EMO). (The CIS is a regional organization which includes many successor states of the USSR.) Together with his co-author Alexey Kochetkov, Byshok has produced Neonazis and Euromaidan: From Democracy to Dictatorship, the most comprehensive profile of how Ukrainian fascists, often backed by the US State Department and the National Endowment for Democracy, used the recent disturbances in Kiev to overthrow the elected government of Ukraine and then created the illegal government backed up by modern storm troopers which is at the root of the present crisis there.

“The state will push” — Boris Alekseevich Litvinov, a relative of the Soviet-era diplomat, emeritus prime minister, and now key economic policy maker of the Donetsk People’s Republic, shown with the author in Donetsk, April 22, 2015. Litvinov told Halyna Mokrushyna of New Cold War.org last November: “We want to build a parliamentarian republic, based on the state’s ownership of land and its resources, of air and water spaces, a state?s strong control of economic process, and a socially oriented state.”
In addition to formulating economic policy, Litvinov can be considered the Thomas Jefferson of his country, since it was he — aided in the drafting by colleagues Cherkashin and Purgin — who worked through the night of April 6 to 7, 2015 to compose the Declaration of Independence of the new People’s Republic of Donetsk. In contrast to the wildly false and defamatory portrayal of these events by Wikipedia (“The entity was declared on 7 April 2014 by a group of armed and masked militants …”), Litvinov and his associates — all leading intellectuals — carefully studied precedents in international law as they prepared for independence. Livinov has been working with two economic institutes in Moscow in developing his reform plans. The result may establish the DPR as one of the leading laboratories for anti-globalization and anti-IMF economic reform worldwide.

Hillary Clinton — The International Neocon Warmonger
As the National Journal reported in 2014, even the pathetically weak anti-war left is not ready to reconcile with Hillary given her warmongering as Secretary of State. And with good reason. Scratching just lightly beneath the surface of Hillary Clinton’s career reveals the empirical evidence of her historic support for aggressive interventions around the globe.
Beginning with Africa, Hillary defended the 1998 cruise missile strike on the El Shifa pharmaceutical plant in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, destroying the largest producer of cheap medications for treating malaria and tuberculosis and provided over 60% of available medicine in Sudan. In 2006 she supported sending United Nations troops to Darfur with logistical and technical support provided by NATO forces. Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi was outspoken in his condemnation of this intervention, claiming it was not committed out of concern for Sudanese people but “…for oil and for the return of colonialism to the African continent.”
This is the same leader who was murdered in the aftermath of the 2011 NATO bombing of Libya; an attack promoted and facilitated with the eager support of Mrs. Clinton. In an infamous CBS news interview, said regarding this international crime: “We came, we saw, he died.” As Time magazine pointed out in 2011, the administration understood removing Qaddafi from power would allow the terrorist cells active in Libya to run rampant in the vacuum left behind. Just last month the New York Times reported that Libya has indeed become a terrorist safe haven and failed state— conducive for exporting radicals through “ratlines” to the conflict against Assad in Syria.
Hillary made prompt use of the ratlines for conflicts in the Middle East. In the summer of 2012, Clinton privately worked with then CIA director and subversive bonapartist David Petraeus on a proposal for providing arms and training to death squads to be used to topple Syria just as in Libya. This proposal was ultimately struck down by Obama, reported the New York Times in 2013, but constituted one of the earliest attempts at open military support for the Syrian death squads.
Her voting record on intervening in Afghanistan and Iraq is well known and she also has consistently called for attacking Iran. She even told Fareed Zakaria the State Department was involved “behind the scenes” in Iran’s failed 2009 Green Revolution. More recently in Foreign Policy magazine David Rothkopf wrote on the subject of the Lausanne nuclear accord, predicting a “snap-back” in policy by the winner of the 2016 election to the foreign policy in place since the 1980s. The title of this article? “Hillary Clinton is the Real Iran Snap-Back.” This makes Hillary the prime suspect for a return to the madcap Iranian policies that routinely threaten the world with a World War 3 scenario.
Hillary Clinton is not only actively aggressing against Africa and the Middle East. She was one of the loudest proponents against her husband’s hesitancy over the bombing of Kosovo, telling Lucina Frank: “I urged him to bomb,” even if it was a unilateral action.
While no Clinton spokesperson responded to a request by the Washington Free Beacon regarding her stance on Ukraine, in paid speeches she mentioned “putting more financial support into the Ukrainian government”. When Crimea decided to choose the Russian Federation over Poroshenko’s proto-fascist rump state, Hillary anachronistically called President Putin’s actions like “what Hitler did in the ‘30s.” As a leader of the bumbled ”reset” policy towards Russia, Hillary undoubtedly harbors some animus against Putin and will continue the destabilization project ongoing in Ukraine.
Not content with engaging in debacles in Eastern Europe, she has vocally argued for a more aggressive response to what she called the “rollback of democratic development and economic openness in parts of Latin America.” This indicates her willingness to allow the continuation of CIA sponsored efforts at South American destabilization in the countries of Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil.
It is one of the proud prerogatives of the Tax Wall Street Party to push out into the light the Wall Street and foundation-funded Democrats. The final blow to Hillary’s clumsy façade comes directly from arch-neocon Robert Kagan. Kagan worked as a foreign policy advisor to Hillary along with his wife, Ukraine madwoman Victoria Nuland, during Hillary’s term as Secretary of State. He claimed in the New York Times that his view of American foreign policy is best represented in the “mainstream” by the foreign policy of Hillary Clinton; a foreign policy he obviously manipulated or outright crafted. Kagan stated: “If she pursues a policy which we think she will pursue…it’s something that might have been called neocon, but clearly her supporters are not going to call it that; they are going to call it something else.” What further reason could any sane person need to refute Hillary? A vote for Hillary is a vote for the irrational return to war.
The “Giant Sucking Sound”: Clinton Gave US NAFTA and Other Free Trade Sellouts
“There is no success story for workers to be found in North America 20 years after NAFTA,” states AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka. Unlike other failures of his Presidency, Bill Clinton can not run from NAFTA. It was Vice President Al Gore, not a veto-proof Republican congress, who lobbied to remove trade barriers with low-wage Mexico.
The record of free trade is clear. Multinational corporations and Wall Street speculators realize incredible profits, wages remain stagnant in the US, poverty persists in the developing world, and the remaining industrial corporations in America and Canada are increasingly owned by Chinese, Indian and other foreign interests.
America’s free trade policy is upside down. Besides Canada, Australia and Korea, most of our “free” trade partners are low-wage sweatshop paradises like Mexico, Chile, Panama, Guatemala, Bahrain and Oman. The US does in fact apply tariffs on most goods and on most nations of origin – rates are set by the US International Trade Commission (USTIC), a quasi-public federal agency: http://hts.usitc.gov/
Since a German- or Japanese-made automobile would under USITC’s schedule be taxed 10% upon importation, Volkswagen and Toyota can circumvent taxation by simply building their auto assembly plants for the US market in Mexico. In Detroit, an auto assembly worker is paid between $14 and $28/hour, ($29,120-$58,240/yr); hard work for modest pay. In Mexico, the rate varies from $2-5/hour.
In China, all automobile imports regardless of origin are tariffed as high as 25%. This allows the Chinese to attract joint ventures with Volkswagen and Toyota, and to paraphrase Abraham Lincoln, “keep the jobs, the cars and the money.”
NAFTA-related job loss is not a question of productivity, currency manipulation, “fair trade,” environmental standards, etc. While these issues are not trivial, free trade – as Lincoln’s advisor Henry C. Carey proved – is a matter of simple accounting. Can an American family survive on $4,160/year ($2/hr)? If not, cars and their components will be built in Mexico. If we want cars built in the United States, the only solution is a general tariff (import tax) reflecting the difference between those wage standards, like the very tariffs repealed by Bill Clinton.
In the United States the “runaway shop” under NAFTA and CAFTA has sent trade deficits and unemployment soaring while wages drop relative to the cost of living. Yet Mexico and other “partners” receive no benefit either. Many manufacturing sectors in Mexico pay wages lower than the equivalent sector in China. Mexico is now the world leader in illegal narcotics exportation and weapons importation. The poverty level between 1994 and 2009 remained virtually identical. (52.4% – 52.3%). The shipping of raw materials to Mexico comprise the majority of so called American “exports”. The finished products from these exports are assembled and sold back to the United States at slave labor prices.
Don’t expect Hillary to behave differently with the coming “Trans-Pacific Partnership,” which seeks to replace an ascendant China with less-developed Vietnam and Malaysia. Vietnam would overtake India-allied Bangladesh in the global apparel trade, and Malaysia has a high-tech manufacturing sector poised to rival China’s. With America’s manufacturing economy in shambles, the Clinton machine can now be redirected to geopolitical maneuvers.

Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D.
Warmonger madman Tom Cotton of Arkansas, instigator of the #47Traitors letter from GOP senators to the Iranian government seeking to sabotage international negotiations on lifting sanctions, is at it again: this past week he told radio bigot Tony Perkins that Iran needed to be bombed, and that the operation would be a cakewalk, pontificating: “Even if military action were required, the president is trying to make you think it would be 150,000 heavy mechanized troops on the ground in the Middle East again as we saw in Iraq. That’s simply not the case. It would be something more along the lines of what President Clinton did in December 1998 during Operation Desert Fox. Several days of air and naval bombing against Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction facilities for exactly the same kind of behavior. For interfering with weapons inspectors and for disobeying Security Council resolutions. All we’re asking is that the president simply be as tough in the protection of America’s national security interest as Bill Clinton was.” After passing Metternich and Talleyrand last week in the ranking of all-time greatest diplomats, the megalomaniac Cotton is now reportedly in line for promotion to Field Marshal. Another GOP presidency is virtually guaranteed to trigger general war.
Freemasonic opportunist Rand Paul posed this week on the deck of an aircraft carrier to stress his conversion to jingoistic “peace through strength,” meaning thinly veiled militarism, as he contorts himself to follow the psychotic humors of his GOP xenophobic base. Questions about his protean flip-flops have been met by self-righteous browbeating of reporters.(Photo Gage Skidmore)
Another tragic presidency waiting in the wings: Hillary Clinton is to announce her White House bid in the next several days. She is a warmonger and a Wall Street puppet. Her success, like Rand Paul?s, would spell yet another sickening downward lurch for the United States.
Greek Premier Alexis Tsipras visited Moscow this week for talks with President Putin. Discussions included ways to exempt Greek farm products from Russia’s countersanctions against the EU, the future prospects of the Greek Pipeline from Turkey to Macedonia, and no doubt much that was not mentioned in the readouts. Syriza has been in power for two and a half months, fighting the Deutsche Bank bloc largely alone in the EU. The words of Tom Payne from December 23, 1776 apply: “These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” Tsipras will keep fighting and will finally prevail.

Participants in the Lausanne Conference announce the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action Regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Nuclear Program (from left): Hailong Wu of China, Laurent Fabius of France, Frank-Walter Steinmeier of Germany, Federica Mogherini of the European Union, Javad Zarif of Iran, an unidentified Russian official, Philip Hammond of the United Kingdom, and John Kerry of the United States in the Rolex Forum auditorium of the EPFL Learning Centre, Écublens-Lausanne, Switzerland on 2 April 2015. The Lausanne framework has the potential to change the direction the Middle East away from conflict and towards peaceful coexistence.
The potential of Lausanne can be compared to that of the 1963 Limited Test Ban Treaty, which allowed the world to turn away from the brink of thermonuclear confrontation as seen during the Cuban missile crisis of October 1962, and to enjoy the benefits of war avoidance between the thermonuclear superpowers USSR and USA. What is shaping up now is the biggest foreign policy debate in US politics since `the rejection of the League of Nations after World War I. Do not let the GOP Congress of scoundrels and adventurers scuttle Lausanne, and place this country on the path to a general Middle East war and possible world war in the service of their sordid ambitions.
On October 7, 1963 President Kennedy signed the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty in the White House Treaty Room. Looking on were (left to right) William Hopkins, Sen. Mike Mansfield, John J. McCloy, Adrian S. Fisher, Sen. John Pastore, W. Averell Harriman, Sen. George Smathers, Sen. J.W. Fulbright, Sec. of State Dean Rusk, Sen. George Aiken, President Kennedy, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, Sen. Everett Dirksen, William C. Foster, Sen. Howard W. Cannon, Sen. Leverett Saltonstall, Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel, Vice President Johnson.
Last Thursday seven British Party leaders met in a televised debate. Those present included Cameron for the Tories, Miliband for New Labor, Clegg for the Liberal Democrats, Farage for the xenophobic UK Independence Party, and Natalie Bennett for the Greens, plus Scottish and Welsh regional parties. Natalie Bennett of the Greens (photo) claimed that hers is the main anti-austerity party. But while the Greens may oppose certain forms of fiscal and wage austerity, they demand a ferocious energy austerity which is every bit as destructive, especially when combined with de-industrialization and the rejection of vital infrastructure investments.
So far as is known, the only candidate standing for the May 7 elections in any of the UK’s 650 election districts who rejects both fiscal/wage and budget austerity is Stuart J. Hooper of South Basildon and East Thurrock, Essex. Hooper wants a trading tax or financial transfer tax on the transactions of the City of London banks to replenish the Treasury. He also proposes the nationalization of the Bank of England to provide several trillion pounds sterling of national credit to fully fund the National Health Service build attractive, modern housing units, and rebuild Britain’s depleted infrastructure.
