“A Silent Coup”: Jeremy Scahill & Bob Herbert on Corporate, Mil itary Interests Shaping Obama’s SOTU ( with intro from ohnwentsya)

(This is a repost from the Democracy Now! site. You can see the original at the link below. Truthout listed this as a video interview on their site-I am trying to find a link to the video to post it too.

I believe we have the best President we could possibly have, under the circumstances but no matter how great a man Barack Obama himself may be- the circumstances I mentioned are indeed most dire for America and the human race as a whole.

Right now most of our planet is ruled by a fascist oligarchy with our governments-whether democracy, republic, kingdom, socialist or other type of state- as very limited puppet regimes to the true powers who we rarely ever see or hear accurate news about.

President Obama went into this knowing a good bit about that situation but perhaps not realizing the full extent. He called on us all to back him up and be personally involved in creating change the night he was first elected.

I do not know if we the people let him down by not participating enough or in great enough numbers to make a difference or if, in fact, the level of control was already too vast and entrenched to change as I am sure President Obama envisioned doing when he was first elected.

This SOTU is evidence to me that whatever the background reason, Barack Obama now knows that the power structure-invisible to most- that he hoped to change is beyond his ability to do so.

I still have hope that we WILL topple that corrupt structure but I see through the words and actions of a brilliant man who is in a position to be better informed than most about the reality of the situation, that the plainly visible tools and methods of democracy have failed so far to accomplish it.

Barack Obama is far too intelligent and well educated to believe that a monstrosity like the TPP is good for America or the world. His acceptance of it bespeaks his deeper understanding of the current power and control structure we live under far more than any personal good opinion of it.

If you pray, please pray for our President, our world and all living beings.

When the best efforts of wise, educated and passionate human beings are not enough to stop true evil we still have an ace up our sleeve in the fact that the Universe we live in is alive and aware.

Whether you call it Universe, God, Goddess, Great Spirit, Allah or any of a thousand other equally accurate names; we can pray and know that miracles far beyond our wildest dreams are always possible.


“A Silent Coup”: Jeremy Scahill & Bob Herbert on Corporate, Military Interests Shaping Obama’s SOTU

On issues from domestic inequality to foreign policy, President Obama delivered his fifth State of the Union with a vow to take action on his own should Congress stonewall progress on his agenda. But will Obama’s policies go far enough? We host a roundtable with three guests: Jeremy Scahill, producer and writer of the Oscar-nominated documentary “Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield” and senior investigative reporter at First Look Media, which will launch in the coming months; Bob Herbert, distinguished senior fellow with Demos; and Lorella Praeli, director of advocacy and policy at the United We Dream coalition.

AMY GOODMAN: Our guests are Jeremy Scahill—his film,Dirty Wars, has just been nominated for an Oscar; Bob Herbert with us, former New York Times columnist, now with Demos; and Lorella Praeli with the United We Dream coalition. Nermeen?

NERMEEN SHAIKH: We’re continuing our coverage of President Obama’s State of the Union address. During Tuesday’s speech, he announced an executive action to raise the minimum wage for some federal contract workers from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour.

PRESIDENT BARACKOBAMA: In the coming weeks, I will issue an executive order requiring federal contractors to pay their federally funded employees a fair wage of at least $10.10 an hour, because if you cook our troops’ meals or wash their dishes, you should not have to live in poverty.

Of course, to reach millions more, Congress does need to get on board. Today, the federal minimum wage is worth about 20 percent less than it was when Ronald Reagan first stood here. And Tom Harkin and George Miller have a bill to fix that by lifting the minimum wage to $10.10. It’s easy to remember, 10-10. This will help families. It will give businesses customers with more money to spend. It does not involve any new bureaucratic program. So join the rest of the country. Say yes. Give America a raise.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: Bob Herbert, can you respond to that, the significance of this raise for some federal workers?

BOB HERBERT: Sure. I think it’s symbolically significant. So, it’s not going to take effect until new contracts come up, so federal contract workers will have to be paid at least a minimum of $10.10 an hour. The reason I think it’s symbolically significant is because it keeps a spotlight on the issue of the minimum wage, on the issue of employment going forward.

You know, to Jeremy’s point about the State of the Union essentially being a propaganda speech, which is absolutely true, what you didn’t hear there was really what the state of the economy is for ordinary Americans, for working people in this country. You didn’t hear anything about poverty, for example. So, for years now, the American people have made it clear, in poll after poll and in other ways, that employment is their top priority. I mean, people need jobs. But neither party, presidents from either party and Congress, whether it’s in the control of the Republicans or the Democrats, have had a sustained, effective job creation program in this country. And the United States is never going to get out of its morass until it’s able to put people back to work.

We now have nearly 50 million people who are officially poor in the United States, according to federal guidelines. Another 50 million people are just a notch or two above the official poverty rate. That’s nearly a third of the entire population that’s poor or near poor. One out of every three black children in the United States is poor. If you just walk a few blocks from this studio, every day you will see enormous lines wrapped around the corner for soup kitchens and that sort of thing. And that’s the case in places across this country. None of that was addressed. And none of the initiatives that the president has offered, and nothing that the Republicans have offered in years, would begin to address this state of distress among American working people and among the poor.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: Just to give us an idea, Bob Herbert, how many employees does the federal government have through contractors?

BOB HERBERT: Well, it’s interesting. It was actually Demos that—it was a Demos initiative that put the spotlight on this $10.10 initiative, because Demos was the first organization to point out that the federal government, through its contractors, employs nearly two million low-wage workers, which is more than Wal-Mart and McDonald’s combined. So, if you could get this initiative expanded to cover all of the workers who are contracted to work for the federal government, then you would help an enormous number of people.

AMY GOODMAN: Mention of unions? I saw Richard Trumka in the audience.

BOB HERBERT: You know, get me started on unions. One of the reasons American workers are in such a deep state of distress is because they have no clout in the workplace. They are not organized, and they are not represented, so they cannot fight for their own interests. Corporations are organized every which way from sundown, and they have tremendous amounts of money. They have a lot a political clout and that sort of thing.

Workers go to work. You know, it’s just one man or one woman, you know, against an employer in a terrible job market. So you’re afraid to even ask for a raise, even if you deserve a raise, because you think the employer is going to say to you, “Take a hike.” And then you go out there in this terrible job market, and there’s no jobs to be had. If workers were organized, then they would be able to have clout. You’d be able to bring pressure not just on employers, not just on corporations, but also on the federal government to get legislation passed that would be beneficial to workers.

And one of the most important things you could do is to just enforce the laws that are on the books that have to do with labor organizing. I mean, so, if you’re in an organization, a corporation, a plant, that sort of thing, where workers are not organized, do not belong to a labor union, they want to organize—the majority of the workers want to organize—the corporations fight you every step of the way. And they use a tremendous number—amount of unfair tactics. That’s illegal, but the federal government has not enforced the laws.

AMY GOODMAN: Let’s talk about international trade policy and how that relates. In his State of the Union, President Obama also sought fast-track authority to give lawmakers an up-or-down vote on the trade deals such as TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

PRESIDENT BARACKOBAMA: When 98 percent of our exporters are small businesses, new trade partnerships with Europe and the Asia-Pacific will help them create even more jobs. We need to work together on tools like bipartisan trade promotion authority to protect our workers, protect our environment, and open new markets to new goods stamped “Made in the U.S.A.” Listen, China and Europe aren’t standing on the sidelines. And neither should we.

AMY GOODMAN: That was President Obama in his fifth State of the Union address. We just returned from Japan, Bob Herbert. There, there’s a huge discussion about the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Here, most people, if you asked them, they wouldn’t even know what it is.

BOB HERBERT: Well, one of the things that’s a problem in this country is because the economic situation has been so stagnant for most people for so long and because the government has been—the government in Washington has been so dysfunctional, that Americans have really tuned out. And also, I don’t think that the press has done a good job at all on trade agreements, if you go all the way back to NAFTA in the 1990s. So people essentially don’t even understand these agreements. But what they do understand is that they have not been helpful to the vast majority of workers over all these years. So…

JEREMY SCAHILL: Can I just make a comment?

AMY GOODMAN: Jeremy Scahill.

JEREMY SCAHILL: I mean, you know, what Obama was doing there—in his last major address that he gave, he—at the United Nations General Assembly, he laid out this sort of forceful defense of American empire, and even went so far as to say that the U.S. will use its military might to continue to secure energy resources. In this speech, it was a pretty forceful defense of a neoliberal economic agenda. And, you know, what Bob is saying about corporations resonates on a foreign policy level, as well.

What is widely being considered to be the most moving part of last night was when this U.S. Army Ranger was addressed in the crowd and who was severely wounded and had done 10 tours. Think about that for a moment—10 tours in these war zones. You know, this young American spent his entire adult life in these combat zones. And, you know, the issue of how veterans are treated in this country is one thing, but at the end of the day, did he benefit from these wars? Does the average American benefit from the continuation of these wars? No. Who benefits? That’s the most important question we all have to ask. It’s corporations.


JEREMY SCAHILL: War corporations, the Halliburtons of the world, the Boeings. John Kerry, yesterday it was announced, is giving these awards for corporate excellence around the world. He’s giving them to Citibank, to Apache, to Boeing, to Coca-Cola. And so you have this neoliberal economic agenda, which is sort of the hidden hand, in many ways, of the U.S. empire, and then you have this iron fist of U.S. militarism that is being sold to the American public, and increasingly to the world, as national security policy.

And so, you know, when I see that Army Ranger who’s wounded like that, the first thing that just occurs to me is: Who has benefited from all of this? When corporations control our political process in this country through a legalized form of corruption that’s called campaign finance, what does that say about the state of our democracy? In a way, there already has been a coup in this country, but it’s been a silent coup. And it reminds me of that famous line from the great movie The Usual Suspects. At the end of it, Kevin Spacey’s character says the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. In many ways, a coup has happened, and the brilliance of it is that it’s not sparking major uprisings because we’ve been pacified and taught to just accept this as how things work. We have two parties in this country, the minimum wage is going to be the minimum wage, and corporations are in control, and these wars are fought in our name, but without our consent.

BOB HERBERT: And the flipside of who benefits is the suffering that is so tremendous out there among the warriors who have been sent over to fight these wars since late 2001. And so, you just have hundreds of thousands of people who have—men and women, who have come back from the combat zones, who have terrible, disabling injuries, who are going to have to be cared for—we have an obligation to care for them—in many cases, for the rest of their lives. We have to pay, as a society, to care for these folks. You know, it’s probably—Joe Stiglitz has estimated that now these wars are probably going cost cumulatively $4 trillion or more. None of this has been really explored clearly or properly explained to the American public.

JEREMY SCAHILL: You know, just a small sort of side point on this, you know, when we talk about the U.S. withdrawing from Iraq and Afghanistan, the conventional military, a story that very seldom gets attention is the connection between a paramilitarization of law enforcement inside of the United States and increasing use of what they call counterterrorism tactics onSWAT-style operations in the U.S. The military is donating a lot of its equipment to local police agencies and other so-called law enforcement agencies, and the communities that are most at risk here are communities of color and poor communities. Everything is about war—the war on drugs, the war on crime.


JEREMY SCAHILL: And war requires some kind of a militarized response. And that’s what we’re seeing. This is deeply connected to the wars abroad, the wars at home, as well.

BOB HERBERT: And this is actually going into our public schools, where you have that type of militarized behavior going on actually in public schools. That’s how you get the school-to-prison pipeline that people are talking about.

AMY GOODMAN: On Afghanistan, President Obama said, “If the Afghan government signs a security agreement that we have negotiated, a small force of Americans could remain in Afghanistan with NATOallies.” But the latest news says the Pentagon has proposed up to 10,000 troops remaining behind, Jeremy.

JEREMY SCAHILL: Yeah, and if you look at what sort of various senior anonymous military officials have been saying for several years now, they’ve known that the withdrawal is not really going to be a withdrawal. Yes, we’re going to see the Marines pull out. We’re going to have this thing where journalists can ride on the tanks, like they did out of Iraq. But at the end of the day, this is an Afghanization of a U.S. policy. So, what’s going to happen is that you’re going to have these advise-and-assist squads of highly trained U.S. special ops and CIApersonnel accompanying Afghan units, and they’re going to try to have the Afghans do the fighting and dying and killing on behalf of U.S. policy. But what I think should be of greater concern to the American public is that you are going to have these strike forces in place. It’s taken as conventional wisdom now that the U.S. is out of Iraq. Actually, the U.S. has a massive paramilitary presence inside of Iraq and is going to continue to have one inside of Afghanistan. So, these wars are going to continue on for at least another generation, albeit on a sort of covert, hidden-hand manner of doing it.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: But what’s the justification, Jeremy, for keeping troops in Afghanistan?

JEREMY SCAHILL: I mean, there is no counterterrorism mission in Afghanistan anymore. I mean, no one wants to talk about this, because you’re going to be accused of being sympathetic to the Taliban. The Taliban is not a terrorist organization with global aspirations. The Taliban has a constituency, has a greater constituency than the U.S., arguably than Hamid Karzai, who the U.S. recognizes as the president. And I think the Taliban is a morally reprehensible group of individuals, but they do have indigenous support. And the reason that they’re fighting right now is because the U.S. and NATO are in their country. And so, to sort of imply that what we’re doing there is countering terrorists, when in the first months of the Obama administration his own national security adviser said there are less than a hundred al-Qaeda operatives in Afghanistan, we should be asking that question that John Kerry asked in 1971: Who wants to be the last to die for this failed war? What do they tell the families of the soldiers who die from here until they pull out the conventional military?

AMY GOODMAN: Now, the significance of that, for people who don’t remember, John Kerry, who is the secretary of state and formerly senator, was—fought in Vietnam, and when he came home, he was strongly opposed to the war in Vietnam, and he testified before Congress asking that question.

JEREMY SCAHILL: Yeah, I’d love to see 1971 John Kerry questioning, you know, 2014 John Kerry at a hearing about all these policies that he’s having to sell as secretary of state around the world.

What is “Snowden’s secret?”

Thank you for sharing this. I thought when I first heard of Snowden that he never lost employment with the NSA unless maybe he was transferred to CIA. Nothing he has revealed was unknown to those of us who pay attention. Controlled opposition and disinformation are in constant use but most people just can’t grasp that others really will go to such bizarre lengths of manipulation.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Yes, I’ve been saying this about Snowden — that people should read the book, “The Key: How to Write Damn Good Fiction Using the Power of Myth.”

As an English Major, it’s so obvious it hurts. Americans have become so myth illiterate, so out of touch with soul that they fall for any advertising or news story that even hints at deeper meaning. Of course, the meanings are all contrived and disempowering, but hey, there’s a hero, a chase scene and a Guardian.

The Oracle Report- Wednesday, January 29, 2014


Balsamic Moon Phase – Moon: Capricorn – Ruling Mahavidya: Kali

We have a lot going on right now with the Moon opposing the Black Moon today, the New Moon starting tomorrow, and Venus stationing direct on Friday. But today it is most important to really plant ourselves in the present moment or we will lose the opportunity this last day of Balsamic Moon phase presents.

First off, slow down. When the Sun is in Aquarius, we tend to move faster and faster, chasing things and taking things too far until they spin out. So if you feel at all like the Tasmanian Devil from Looney Tunes, take note that the remedy is to slow down and be more like the a wise owl in a tree.

Second, do your own thing today. It’s really not a day to play in collective reality. It’s a solitary day for inner contemplation because messages, guidance, information, insight, and wisdom are on tap. Tune out and tune in even if you are in the midst of the matrix.

And third, understand that because Venus is completing its retrograde cycle, things that seemed pretty good before may not see as good now. Venus retrograde takes blinders off and removes obstacles. Our feelings about relationships have changed and our views about what we truly value have undergone revision. These internal changes now begin to manifest or reflect in the real world in the form of relationships ending or moving to another level. We begin to use our resources (energetic resources, not just financial resources) in ways that reflect what we truly need and care about. We are investing and re-investing differently. This is happening to everyone, so we are also adjusting to whatever changes others are making. All of this can cause drama.

But the most important thing is to take a step back and gain some perspective today. Connect with the natural cycles of the Sun and the Moon by taking in the energies of the Balsamic Moon phase. It’s the dreamy time, the time when the veils between the worlds are thinnest, and the creative time. We touch the wellspring of Source to facilitate heaven on Earth. Think of today as your own private party with Kali on the final day of her visit.

To take some pressure off and help us gain some perspective, check back for my audio recording about the upcoming month, the New Moon in Aquarius, and also a special report

Planet Alert February 2014  January 28th, 2014

We are ready to enter the Year of the Wood Horse on the new moon of January 30, 2014 at1:38 PM PST. What a year this will be. There will be lots of action and very fast-moving energy. Gemini is the astrological sign for The Year of the Horse. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which acts like quicksilver. The glyph for the Dreamspell calendar on January 30 is the Yellow Magnetic Human. The energy from that glyph strengthens and clears your physical body to prepare for expanded energies so you can open the door to Cosmic Consciousness. Magnetic energy is feminine heart energy so this is the year to think with your heart.

Jupiter is on 13 degrees Cancer right now, which is right over Washington, D.C. This degree rules business, publicity, insurance, religion, high offices of government, and the star Sirius. The Obamacare insurance plan is now in affect and there is always lots of business going on in Washington, D.C, and also in the United States. The United States and Russia will be in our focus this month, along with China. Russia is hosting the Winter Olympics which will be held in Sochi, Russia.

At this new moon, which signifies upcoming events, Mars is being activated in the cardinal cross. This is very interesting because Mars rules sports, and the start of the Olympics is February 7th. Mercury is in Aquarius and turns retrograde on February 7th. I wonder how that will affect the Olympics. Mercury usually causes things to get mixed up in its retrograde phase.

The Sun is now in Aquarius, which is ruled by Uranus, so expect some unexpected events. Uranus rules revolutions and look what is going on in Egypt again. Uranus also rules strikes, uprisings, electricity, lightening, computers, and modern technology.

The north node moves into Libra on February 18, 2014 and Mars will be in Libra until July 25, 2014. The combination of Mars and the node together will be very interesting. This means the node will trigger Mars energy for the next six months. The north node has been in Scorpio for the past year and a half. Scorpio rules hidden secrets and there sure have been a lot of secrets brought to light recently like the event with Edward Snowden and the NSA information. Saturn will still be in Scorpio for another year and this planet will continue uncovering more secrets that will be brought to our attention to be transformed into light.

The north node in Libra will be a whole new ball-game. Libra is usually a peaceful sign that rules justice. It also rules the balance between positive and negative energy, and relationship issues. That energy will be affecting the Vatican and more rules will change. Look at what happened in January-the Pope fired all the top people in the Vatican Bank, except for one person. This is awesome because the Vatican Bank has been at the top of the control ladder for a long time. The buck stops there.

We have yet to see what will be brought forth through that action. One of the results might be the Stock Market fall that happened on Friday, January 24th. I don’t know if this had anything to do with the Pope firing the top leaders of the Vatican Bank, although when something happens at the top it trickles down through the other banks, which could affect the Stock Market.

Our Sun flipped, or finished its pole shift at the end of December. The flip started in 2013 and it takes over a year to complete. I think that was part of the chaotic energy we experienced in 2013. The Sun has a pole shift every 11 years so this is not unusual, although because of the placement of the planets in a cardinal cross we will be greatly affected by this new energy. The energy will continue to be chaotic for a while. I think it is a good idea to focus on this new energy and ground it into our beloved planet Earth. This will help us to stay grounded and stable during this time period.

I think this chaotic energy will culminate in April of this year. There will be a perfect cross in the heavens on April 22nd. The cross will be formed by planets on 13 degrees of each cardinal sign. There will be a total lunar eclipse on April 15th which is on the first day of Passover. This is called a blood red moon because the moon is expected to turn red. In fact there will be two blood red moons in 2014, and two in 2015. The second one in 2014 is on October 8th which is also on a Jewish festival called Sukkoth.

Palm Sunday is on April 13 and Easter is on April 20th. This red moon eclipse will happen during this holy week. The cross in the heavens will start forming on April 13 and will become exact on April 22. I was impressed to reread the story of Moses and the Passover. That event occurred in Egypt with the people of Israel crying to the Pharaoh to let them go, they wanted to be free and not be slaves anymore. Isn’t that what has been going on in Egypt, and the other Middle East countries for the last 3 years? Now it has reached a crisis in Egypt, and the people are really crying to be free. Is this history repeating itself?

Think back to the story of Moses. First the people were told to put blood above their door so they would be safe as Passover occurred. Then there were several plagues that affected the people. Hasn’t the Earth been going through accelerated Earth changes for the past 3 years? Then the Sun became black and the people escaped from Egypt and were set free. Doesn’t the sun turn black in a solar eclipse? There will be a solar eclipse on April 27-28this year, depending on what part of the world you live in.

Many people have been waiting for the return of Christ. One of the prophecies I heard about was that after Ariel Sharon died, and also Nelson Mandela, we would then witness the return of the Christ. Both of those men have recently died. It says in the Bible that Christ will return in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory and we will rise to meet the Lord in the air. This is a possibility because I know many people who have been waiting for a long time for the return of Space Beings and to have open contact with them. The dark ships are on a lower frequency so our consciousness has to be high enough to be able to contact the higher Beings of light who come in awesome crystal ships of light.

Easter is considered the celebration of the risen Christ. Haven’t we all been working on purifying our minds and our bodies so we can manifest Christ Consciousness? Aren’t we the ones we have been waiting for? It’s exciting to think that we may have reached the point in our lives where we can now manifest Christ Consciousness. Many of us have worked for years to release and transform all the garbage we have been carrying with us for eons of time. Don’t you feel lighter and more in tune with the higher frequencies? Isn’t it time to create a beautiful new planet on fifth dimension Earth? Aren’t you excited to be living on this planet so you can witness all of these marvelous events that will soon transpire? I can hardly wait.

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! So Be It! ***** Mahala Gayle *****

So Long, Pete & Toshi Seeger, It’s Been Amazingly Great to Know You … by Harvey Wasserman

Thank you for sharing this Jean. I grew up hearing and admiring Pete Seeker tho I did not know him personally. He was one of those amazing elders who first made me aware that the mainstream media telling me my parents generation just suddenly woke up all by themselves and decided to save the world from the oligarchs was a lie. I am grateful we had the benefit of his beautiful soul for so long.
