McCain Treason

“Conspiracy Theory!!!” cried the New York Times in its recent attempt to defend John McCain against revelations that show the Senator from Arizona providing material support to terrorism. The NY Times was called into action to “debunk” the evidence that McCain had met with terrorists, cannibals, and ISIS militants in Syria after the photographs of those meetings began circulating in the alternative media and more mainstream figures began to pick up on and run with them over the last few months.

From the New York Times, Rick Gladstone writes,

Senator John McCain was one of the earliest advocates of American military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. So it has been vexing for Mr. McCain to be battling persistent — and false — Internet rumors that he not only helped invent the group but also knows its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Muslim world and America’s latest Public Enemy No. 1.

The rumors are based partly on images of a Syrian fighter who resembles Mr. Baghdadi, seen in photographs with Mr. McCain — some originally posted on Twitter by the senator — during his visit in May 2013 to northern Syria. He met members of the Free Syrian Army, an insurgent group that opposes ISIS and that President Obama, in a speech Wednesday on his new strategy for battling ISIS, has vowed to strengthen.

Nurtured by conspiracy blogposts, social media and photo-altering tricks, the false rumors of Mr. McCain’s relationship with ISIS have taken on a life of their own.

While the NY Times denies the photographs showing John McCain and Baghdadi together, it freely admits that McCain met with the Free Syrian Army, itself a terrorist organization responsible for indiscriminate killings, imposition of sharia law, murders, rapes, cannibalism and more.

Although Gladstone and the NY Times attempt to portray the FSA as moderate rebels, the writer and the publication should remember one of its own articles from as far back as April, 2013, written by Ben Hubbard. Hubbard wrote,

In Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, rebels aligned with Al Qaeda control the power plant, run the bakeries and head a court that applies Islamic law. Elsewhere, they have seized government oil fields, put employees back to work and now profit from the crude they produce. 

Across Syria, rebel-held areas are dotted with Islamic courts staffed by lawyers and clerics, and by fighting brigades led by extremists. Even the Supreme Military Council, the umbrella rebel organization whose formation the West had hoped would sideline radical groups, is stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government. 

Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of. [emphasis added]

Even one of the FSA commanders, Bassel Idriss, recently admitted to openly collaborating with ISIS and al-Nusra, revealing yet another example of the fact that the “moderate rebels” are not moderate at all.

Tax Wall Street Party campaigns are bearing fruit: our agitation against McCain and to end the phony war of appeasing terrorism with token bombing has contributed to an increase of US sorties, bringing about a decisive defeat of ISIS at Kobane, Syria. With this, the US media hype portraying ISIS as invincible falls to the ground, preparing the annihilation of this terrorist congeries.

TX Gov. Rick Perry

The realization that, were it not for the budget cuts and sequester sabotage imposed by the Tea Party Republicans, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) might already have a vaccine for Ebola is teaching millions what we have been arguing for years — that budget cuts kill, austerity cuts are genocide, whether they be Republican or Democratic in origin. In addition, the Ebola chaos in Dallas, Texas has underlined that Gov. Rick Perry’s arch-Republican austerity regime has given that state the worst public health system in the US, inflicting needless health emergencies on the rest of us. Perry has done far more damage than Obama. With this, the myth of Texas as the free enterprise paradise falls, revealing a backward, low-wage, dead-end state.

But despite the spectacular failure of Perry’s Texas health system, the Democratic National Committee and its House and Senate campaign arms appear asleep. Why let reactionaries blame the fiascos of Perry’s Texas on the Obama White House? Where is the War Room? Where is the counterpunch? Where is the coordinated barrage by members of Congress? With the Wall Street Democrats incapable of fighting, it falls to persons of good will to save the country from the horrors of the looming Republican austerity dictatorship.

From now through November 4, let the watchword be: #ArrestMcCain4ISIS!

General Gamelin

General Maurice Gamelin in 1939-40 had 110 British and French divisions to Hitler’s 25 on the western front, but he sat still and refused to attack while Poland was crushed, because London and Paris wanted to keep Hitler in power and send him east against the USSR. This was known as the phony war, the drôle de guerre, the Sitzkrieg. Today it is the Syrian Kurds who are about to be massacred at Kobane and elsewhere because the US, NATO, Turkey, and the Gulf monarchs want to use ISIS against Syria, Iran, Russia, China, and India – BRICS nations who have been challenging the IMF world system. The US media are playing up ISIS as invincible supermen with magical powers, but in reality they are only 25,000 psychotic patsies and brigands who could be pulverized by a 3 to 4-week air campaign of 100-200 sorties/day over Iraq and Syria, while arming the Syrian Kurds and forcing all neighboring nations to cut off support to the terrorists.

General Dempsey

If 200 sorties a day seems like a lot, remember that the US-centered coalition flew about 100,000 sorties against Iraq in about one month at the beginning of 1991, for about 3,335 sorties per day. The US and other nations have flown about 2,000 sorties against ISIS over the last two months, for about 35 per day. The current effort is thus about one one hundredth of the daily attacks launched under Desert Storm. Is Obama even aware of this state of affairs?

US General Martin Dempsey (photo) was thought to be Obama’s hand-picked man in the Pentagon, but he may have more recently gone over to the Petraeus/McCain faction of extreme neocon warmongers. In any case, Dempsey and US Central Command boss General Lloyd J. Austin III are now on their way into the history books as appeasers and defeatists in the infamous tradition of Gamelin.

Senator Joe Biden US Vice President Joseph Biden has — for reasons still being clarified — just dished up a large portion of truth about recent events in Syria. Biden’s revelation came during an October 3 speech to Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Biden was responding to a question about US policy regarding Syria.

“Our allies in the region were our biggest problem in Syria,” Biden said. “The Turks are great friends and I have a great relationship with Erdogan. The Saudis, the Emiratis,etc. But what were they doing? They were so determined to take down [Syrian President Bashar al-]Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war that they poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except the people being supplied were Al-Nusra and Al-Qaeda and extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world. We couldn’t convince our colleagues to stop supplying them.”

Biden added that these countries had “awakened” to the threat from IS and other militants: “It took a while for Turkey, a Sunni nation, to figure out that ISIL was a direct and immediate threat to their well-being,” Biden commented.

Biden also claimed that Erdogan had confessed his own mistakes directly to the Vice President. “He said, ‘You were right. We let too many people through.’ Now they’re trying to seal their border,” the Vice President said.

While not the whole story by any means, these observations are more accurate than any description of the Syrian crisis coming thus far from the US government. Indeed, Biden with this statement has endorsed the basic contentions of Assad, Moallem, Mekdad, and other Syrian officials about the nature of the Syrian destabilization.

Apoplectic over Biden’s speech was by contrast Turkey’s megalomaniac neo-Ottoman strongman Erdogan, whose main divergence from ISIS is that Erdogan wants the post of Sultan and Caliph for himself, and not for the upstart Ibrahim backed by Senator McCain.

Erdogan “No one can accuse Turkey of having supported any terrorist organisation in Syria, including IS,” railed the aspiring neo-Ottoman Erdogan, attempting to deny what is common knowledge in the Middle East and worldwide. “If Biden told these words, then he will be history to me. I never uttered such remarks.” Erdogan advanced the grotesque claim that his government had not provided “even the smallest amount of support” to IS or any other terrorists: “Nobody can prove it. Foreign fighters never crossed from Turkey to Syria. There were people coming to Turkey as tourists and went to Syria, but nobody can suggest that they were armed while crossing the border.” These absurd statements refute themselves.

Erdogan continued: “I view [Biden's statement] with regret. I never admitted any mistake, nor did we tell them that they ‘were right’ during my visit to the US. If Mr. Biden uttered these remarks at Harvard, he should apologize. I’m saying this clearly. And we won’t accept slender, indirect explanations.”

Expert linguistic opinion is solicited as to whether Erdogan’s “He will be history” remark should be construed in the original Turkish as a death threat to Vice President , and therefore be inserted in the pattern of pro-terrorist War Party threats against the White House which have proliferated over recent days.

Just a month later, the infamous underwear bomber Umaru Mutallab made his appearance in the skies over Detroit on Christmas Day, 2009. The first reaction of the Obama White House was that the underwear bomber incident had been manufactured by political networks hostile to the president. Later, the White House backed down. photo courtesy wikipedia.org

Full details are here and in subsequent posts:
Incidents like these must always be read as likely blackmail threats tending to extort wider wars, escalation, and other concessions by the pro-war faction of the US ruling class, including its operative arm, the Rogue Network. This War Party cannot be defeated until a political analysis of such threats becomes commonplace and routine.


McCain Republicans Fomenting Insubordination in US Military in Quest of Wider War in Middle East, Ukraine; Syria Warns of False Flag Chemical Attack; #ArrestMcCain4ISIS Campaign Grows

Reactionary and neocon Republicans of the McCain faction are active behind the scenes in fomenting insubordination and mutiny in the US military, combining their hatred for Obama with their demand for a wider war in the Middle East and in eastern Europe. Now, one of McCain’s fellow putschists has blurted out the program of this faction, which consists in attempting to cripple the US armed forces by mass resignations of flag officers, despite two ongoing wars.

Doug Lamborn

Congressman Doug Lamborn (photo), whose mind can best be compared to a rag bag, while speaking to a modest crowd during a tiring campaign, has for whatever reason revealed the actual subversive intent of the McCain GOP.

MSNBC reported Lamborn’s statement as follows: “A lot of us are talking to the generals behind the scenes, saying, ‘Hey, if you disagree with the policy that the White House has given you, let’s have a resignation.’” Lamborn told supporters that if generals resigned en masse in protest of President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy, they would “go out in a blaze of glory.”

This treasonous rhetoric goes far beyond the protections offered by the speech and debate clause. Department of Justice officials must take action to block further seditious actions by the McCainites, including their plausible cooperation with false flag attacks, including chemical and gas attacks now being planned by the anti-Assad terrorist rebels of Syria, as well as with similar machinations by the anti-Russian fascists of Ukraine. This is the same rogue network suspected in relation to the two intruders who appeared at the White House last weekend.
