Fascism is a very real possibility, given the breadth and depth of the unending global downturn...
Zeitgeist, The Movie - Remastered / Final Edition
The report talks about the genocide committed by the Khmer Rouge's Santebal and the Pinochet junta's Caravan of Death in Chile but fails to mention the support for these operations given by Albright's and Cohen's old friend Henry Kissinger, who was recently tapped as Obama's special envoy to talk to the Kremlin.
Nor does the report mention the genocide of Serbs carried out by Albright's "boy toy," Kosovo Liberation Army terrorist leader Hashim Thaci, who now governs independent Kosovo, a state beholden to organized criminal syndicates that hosts one of the largest U.S. military bases in Europe, Camp Bondsteel.
Arab Middle Easterners still painfully recall the days when Clinton's foreign policy was dictated by the "ABC team" of Albright, Berger [National Security Adviser Sandy Berger], and Cohen, all of whom were known to be pro-Israeli due to their family backgrounds.... in pursuit of possible new leads in the story of the ill-fated SS Poet, which disappeared in 1980 while shipping arms to Iran on behalf of the Reagan/Bush campaign to forestall an "October Surprise" by the Carter administration and the pre-election release of U.S. hostages in Iran....
Similarly, Albright's Czech roots and the Yugoslav warrant issued for the arrest of her professor-diplomat father, Joseph Korbel, for the theft of art from Prague, brought forth extreme anti-Serbian policies by Albright, much as Zbigniew Brzezinski's Polish heritage evoked almost-pathological hatred of Russia while he served as Jimmy Carter's National Security Adviser.... Bare minimum steps needed to save USA from ruin: cut off Israel; no more dual citizenships allowed to hold public office or important positions in government; federalize the so-called Federal Reserve and create our own currency; require AIPAC to register as a foreign agent; prevent Israel spying on USA...; and realize, by examining the documents, that there is a Zionist conspiracy to rule the world, and take steps to fight back..."
For aficionados of the Clinton-era interventionist policies that saw the first aerial bombing of a European city, Belgrade, since the days of Adolf Hitler, the Albright-Cohen report does not disappoint. The two argue for a continuance of such tactics to combat "genocide" as arms embargoes (such as the disastrous embargo of Iraq that resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths of Iraqis, including children), radio and cell phone jamming, no-fly zones, "covert operations," covert military training and assistance, "safe havens," economic threats, increased intelligence collection and surveillance, use of satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles to collect intelligence, jam media and "hate radio," precision targeting and air campaigns.
Napolitano appoints her friend to newly-created DHS post
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the former Arizona Governor, has created a new position, Special Advisor on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Detention & Removal, and appointed her friend from Arizona, Dora Schriro, to fill the post. Schriro was the chief of the Missouri prison system, where she was responsible for carrying out 40 state executions, before Napolitano brought her to Arizona to be the director of the Arizona Department of Corrections.
In the official DHS announcement of Schriro's appointment, Napolitano wrote: "Dora is one of America’s leading minds on modern, effective prison management. In Arizona, she visited every correctional facility in the state and conducted a top-to-bottom review of their operations, tackling and reducing both overcrowding and recidivism. Her proven leadership and skills will serve not only this department, but also the individuals we need to house as we enforce our nation’s immigration laws."
Although Schriro is known as a prison reformer, Napolitano is an avowed admirer of the fascist prison tactics of Maricopa County, Arizona Joe Arpaio, who is infamous for forcing prisoners to wear pink outfits and having them perform other degrading acts. Napolitano is a former U.S. Attorney. Schriro is a widow whose husband, Gay Carraway, the director of public safety for St. Louis and ultimately her boss at the time, died of cancer ten months after he and Schriro were married.
In what may be a bad omen for freedom of information for the media in covering the Homeland Security Department, the Napolitano-Schriro team was infamous for withholding public information from the press in Arizona. Even the names of prison guards were considered some sort of "state secret"
Schriro also has problems telling the truth, even under oath. On February 3, 2004, U.S. Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri Carol Jackson rejected a city of St. Louis motion to have a lawsuit dismissed by an inmate in the state prison system. Schriro was named as a defendant. Judge Jackson ruled that Schriro and her co-defendants displayed "demonstrated unreliability" and added that it "is beyond dispute that the defendants' affidavits contain false statements."
After the secrecy and obfuscation within DHS under the regimes of Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, Obama's message of "change," at least at DHS, is falling on deaf ears. The Napolitano-Schriro team is definitely "change we cannot believe in."
Napolitano's stewardship of DHS also appears to be having no effect on plans by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to deal with nationwide social unrest. We have confirmed with FEMA sources that the agency has drawn up plans to remove to relocation centers around the country, U.S. citizens deemed to be national security "threats." FEMA sources confirm the agency has procured buses for this purpose. Round-up lists of those to be re-located are collected by state and local "fusion centers." These centers are linked together by a nationwide DHS network. The fusion centers collect intelligence from DHS, the Department of Justice, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the FBI, tribal, state and local governments, including local police forces. The economic stimulus bill being signed by President Obama allots $250 million for the "upgrading, modifying, or constructing State and local fusion centers."
