Perhaps intimidated by the steady stream of security threats around the White House (two more in the past week), Obama on Nov. 24 unwisely dumped Defense Secretary Hagel without having a suitable replacement ready. Hagel had objected to the Syria policy demanded by the Kerry-Rice-Power humanitarian bomber group, who insist that the main enemy remains Assad, not the ISIS terrorist congeries. The rational US approach would be rather to work with Assad, Iran, and Russia against ISIS, while forcing Erdogan of Turkey to cooperate in opposing the terrorists – or else. Once Hagel had been ousted, a pre-Thanksgiving power play was launched to give warmonger Michele Flournoy the Pentagon post. Flournoy is deeply associated with the Center for a New American Security, the think tank in the orbit of Gen. David Petraeus, who continues to function as the focal point for a political comeback — possibly in authoritarian form — by the hated neocon faction. Push-back against Flournoy quickly emerged in a number of quarters, including this web site. Flournoy was forced to drop out of contention on Tuesday, Nov. 25, just after this broadcast was pre-recorded. It is not known how Flournoy was stopped, but her professed desire to spend more time with her family can safely be considered spurious. There is now grave and immediate danger that the Allen-Petraeus clique will initiate bombing and decapitation attacks against the Assad government. As for the Pentagon post, the controlled media are touting Hagel’s deputy Robert O. Work (also of CNAS), Defense Department veteran Ashton Carter, Homeland Security boss Jeh Johnson, and the Saudi-linked former Mississippi Governor and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus.

The world economy is now harvesting the bitter fruits of the neoliberals’ killer austerity. The main central banks are now falling back on the discredited Quantitative Easing, meaning massive purchase of bankrupt and toxic derivatives, with the hope of saving the zombie banks from another round of bankruptcy. But six years of Quantitative Easing have already failed to produce a recovery in the US, where stagnation continues.

Lautenbach
Wilhelm Lautenbach

Instead of pouring more central bank credit down the derivatives rat-hole, we should now implement the anti-deflation, anti-depression ideas proposed in 1931 by Wilhelm Lautenbach of the German Finance Ministry and Wladimir S. Woytinsky of the German trade unions. In today’s US terms, their call would translate into a credit stimulus of $5 trillion in Fed credit used to buy 0% coupon, 100-year infrastructure bonds to be issued by states, counties, cities, and regional authorities.

Woytinsky
Wladimir S. Woytinsky

Large-scale shovel-ready projects would begin at once. No tax increases, and no borrowing from China, would be involved. The short-term goal would be the creation of 30 million new productive jobs, giving the US full employment for the first time since 1945. Further credit stimulus would be used to refinance the Exim Bank for a campaign of high-technology exports, and to freeze the burden of $1.3 trillion in student loans by refinancing these loans at 0%. (These measures can be easily adapted to other economies worldwide.) Monetary stimulus has been tried and has failed (QE), fiscal stimulus has been tried and has failed (the Pelosi stimulus and supplemental laws of 2009), and is threatening. Credit stimulus for tangible physical commodity production — not bailouts — is the only way out, and it should start immediately.

House Foreign Affairs Chair Ed Royce referred on Nov. 13 on CNN to a “policy review,” making clear that US aggression against the Assad government of Syria was the desired goal. Royce recounted happily that the US strategy might now include a bombing campaign against the Assad government (the main barrier to ISIS) to impose a no-fly zone over Syria designed to please the treacherous President Erdogan of Turkey — who has been a strong backer of the ISIS butchers — and “other regional actors” including “the Gulf states” — i.e. Qatar. Royce indicated that the US air campaign, including the overthrow of Assad, would be the price for a Turkish invasion of Syria with troops and tanks. All of this would add up to a general war in the Middle East — which may well be the goal of the more lucid of these plotters.

Royce also praised disgraced Marine General John R. Allen, once the deputy chief of the US Central Command for the Middle East, who was forced to resign after the revelation of his extensive and dubious email correspondence with the mysterious Lebanese society woman Gilberte “Jill” Khawam Kelley was revealed in November 2012. Allen, along with his colleague David Petraeus, was one of about two dozen generals and admirals forced out of the military after the Benghazi incident, which was a provocation to deliver the presidency to Romney, and has been compared to a warmonger putsch.

On September 13, 2014, Allen — although demonstrably a serious security risk — was appointed by Skull & Bones Secretary of State John Kerry as “Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL” based in the State Department — in effect, as ISIS Czar. Despite Allen’s checkered past, there was little media hue and cry. Allen was malodorous enough to be denied his promised Supreme Command in NATO after his missives to Kelley were revealed, but he somehow was rehabilitated in time for ISIS. Allen’s job description is to “sustain the coalition so it can operate across multiple lines of effort in order to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL.” Is Allen a focus of the defeatism and internal self-sabotage which has crippled the anti-ISIS effort? Has he been responsible for coddling Erdogan’s and Qatar’s pro-ISIS treachery? As part of the Petraeus faction, Allen must in any case be considered as a dangerous advocate of escalation and wider wars.

Allen’s sidekick is the randy Brett McGurk, a former National Security Council official who was denied confirmation as US Ambassador in Iraq in June 2012 when Cryptome published a series of his scabrous emails sent to Wall Street Journal reporter Gina Chon. Kerry soon rewarded McGurk the “Iraq expert” with the post of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.

Allen and McGurk are thus both rejects, who should have been stripped long ago of the security clearances they need to hold these jobs. It appears they are both serving as advocates for Turkey, Qatar, and the Moslem Brotherhood. They should both be fired at once.

In a monstrous frameup, overreaching Michigan prosecutor Mike Sepic is demanding an incredible and outrageous sentence of life in prison for Reverend Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor. Pinkney is a veteran anti-austerity and civil rights community leader of international importance; his testimony was key to convincing United Nations human rights officials to condemn policies which deprive poor people in Michigan of their human right to water.

Reverend Pinkney was been fighting trumped-up charges that he tampered with petitions in the course of his efforts to organize a recall election aiming at the ouster of Benton Harbor Mayor Hightower, an austerity enforcer and privatizer imposed by Whirlpool Corp. and Wall Street. A handwriting expert testified during the trial that Pinkney was innocent, and prosecution witnesses were discredited, but a lily-white judge, jury, and district attorney combined to railroad a conviction on the basis of zero evidence.

In the course of decades of struggle against racism and exploitation, Pinkney had been found guilty of “crimes” like buying votes (despite his meager means) and making threats (Pinkney had dared to quote the Christian Bible). Sepic is now arguing that Pinkney is a repeat offender who must be jailed for life. This must be stopped.

The Pinkney frameup is one of the greatest human rights violations in present-day America. Persons of good will all over the world must join in the effort to denounce this colossal injustice, while also helping to recruit a qualified pro bono civil rights lawyer to defend Rev. Pinkney.
