Nearing March 2012

There are huge cultural and religious tensions in the world. Activists are protesting the burning of Korans in Central Asia plus the Middle East. Newt Gingrich is the neo-con Republican candidate. Gingrich comments that America shouldn't apologize at all for the Korans being burned so profusely. Gingrich is saying these words since he has a reactionary viewpoint on foreign policy affairs. He actually wants a war in Iran if necessary. Also, he conceives that his words will cause more support to his campaign by the Republican bases. It's strange that Gingrich's Presidential campaign has been floundering and he is desperate. Now, we have violence and murder by some Muslim extremists (incited by the Taliban and Wahhabists, who were funded and some were outright created by the Pakistanis ISI & the CIA). President Barack Obama expressed regret about the whole incident. The current installed President of Afghanistan is the former UNOCAL consultant Hamid Karzai. Newt Gingrich accuses Karzai of tolerating the violence in Afghanistan as a means to blame America first. It is wrong to see 2 American troops to be murdered. That is wrong. Also, these events prove that the Afghanistan war should end as soon as possible. It was unjust from the start, because Afghanistan nationally didn't attack us on 9/11. The people who attacked us on 9/11 were a group of people desiring conflict in the world. We know those people. They are of the elite. Afghanistan can be a real democratic society, but this will not occur until years down the line. There were the torture deaths of Afghan prisoners at the Bagram Theater Internment Facility, also known as the Bagram Collection Point. In 2002, U.S. soldiers chained two Afghans to the ceiling at the facility and beat them to death. Seven soldiers who took part in the torture and homicide were never charged. “In interviews and statements to investigators, soldiers who served at Bagram have at times echoed the defenses offered unsuccessfully by the soldiers charged with abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, saying they were acting on instructions from military intelligence personnel or on the authority of superior officers,” the New York Times reported on August 8, 2005. In early 2011, Der Spiegel published photographs of U.S. soldiers posing with dead Afghan civilians. Five soldiers based at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state have been charged with murder and conspiracy in the case. “In addition to the five soldiers charged in the deaths, seven soldiers in the platoon were charged with lesser crimes, including assaulting the witness in the drug investigation, drug use, firing on unarmed farmers and stabbing a corpse,” the AP reported on March 20, 2011. In January of 2012, American soldiers were caught urinating on dead Afghan bodies. These examples along with Abu Ghraib exposes the evils found in American imperialism. A lot of civilians have died in Afghanistan. The U.S. military slaughtered nine children in an air strike in Afghanistan's northeastern Kunar province. NATO has killed people in the Ghaziabad district of Kunar province killing 65 civilians. There were 40 children under the age of 13, 22 women died, and dozens more were injured in the event. In April of 2010, there were U.S. soldiers raking a civilian bus with gunfire near Kandahar. In 2010, Wikileaks released massive, documented war crimes done by the U.S. and NATO in Afghanistan. The U.S./NATO war crimes are found in Serbia, Libya, and other sovereign countries inside of the globe. There were found in the release of civilian murders. The documents revealed the covert unit that will “kill or capture” Taliban leaders, a clear violation of international law and the Geneva Convention. On July 26, 2010, the Obama White House condemned the release of 92,000 military documents but said nothing about the war crimes perpetrated by the Pentagon and NATO. Newt Gingrich outright supports the slaughter in Afghanistan and desires more mass murder in Iran. President Barack Obama and Newt Gingrich agree a lot with foreign policy. The difference is how each man proceeds with their ideas of foreign policy. Gingrich is more reactionary obviously on foreign policy issues. The lesson here is that we should continue to oppose war crimes against humanity and the international bankers ought not to control our system. Mutual negotiation, peaceful colloborations among nation-states, and peace are superior to embracing a war mongering ethos. I don't agree with Americans being murdered over there or innocent Afghanis being murdered as well. 2 wrongs don't make a right. That's common sense. For the record, President Barack Obama was right to apologize for the Koran burning. I don't agree with the President on every issue, but he was right on that. Lives are in stake and a man has to show cultural/religious sensitivity in a complicated culture.

It's easy to witness that many Founding Fathers had links to a secret agenda and secret societies. That secret agenda is to allow America to be the new Atlantis or the new revolutionary state whose influence would spread all throughout the Earth precipitously. George Washington, John Hancock, and Benjamin Franklin are well known Freemasons. Some Founding Fathers used Freemasonic Lodges as a conduit instrument to promote the American Revolution. John Hancock was a ship owner and a trader of goods. He used his expertise in smuggling order for the funding of the Revolution to continue. St. Andrews Lodge was the famous Masonic Lodge during the 18th century that Hancock including the elite classed people were a part of. The Lodge was a place where secret oaths, secret handshakes, and assistance to fellow "brothers" were common place. If a Mason was on the square or on the level, he would be trusted by the Lodge. At least 12 people from St. Andrews Lodge participated in the Boston Tea Party (in protesting the British Empire's oppressive policies against the colonists in colonial America). The Boston Tea Party has 30 men dressed with Mohawk to dump 10,000 pounds of the King’s tea in Boston harbor. Green Dragon Tavern was another place where Masons from St. Andrew's Lodge came into. There were the Sons of Liberty and the Loyal Nine working in the Boston Tea Party as well. George Washington was a very intelligent man. He worked as a farmer, surveyor, and a military man (as far back as the French and Indian War). He believed in the Masonic ideas of liberty and fraternity (except when it came into black slaves, females, etc.). To Masons, God is like the Great Architect who used geometry in creating the Universe in general. The surveying tools of architecture is found in Freemasonry. Benjamin Franklin was a member of the controversial Hell Fire Club. Sir Francis Dashwood headed the Hell Fire Club, which was filled with orgies, hatred of mainstream religion, and the worship of the human will. Franklin loved sciences, so he devised inventions including other infrastructure (inside of Philadelphia for example) in order for the American experiment to flourish for long generations. The Lodge of the Nine Sisters welcomed Benjamin Franklin as well. Yet, you have to give credit when credit is due. George Washington survived assassination attempts by British spies. Many early Americans sincerely desired liberty from the oppression from the British Empire. Also, back then (like in all eras of human history), there were forthright, authentic believers in God in America that desired religious freedom. The defeat of Cornwallis in Yorktown along with the Treaty signed among both sides caused America to have freedom. Ironically, the Inauguration actions of George Washington was highly Masonic. For example, the marshal of the day's events was Freemason and general Jacob Morton. The oath of office was administered by New York State's Grandmaster Robert Livingston. Livingstone of course was a Mason. Washington's escort was Freemason and General Morgan Lewis. The Bible used in the oath was from the St. John's Lodge in New York. Washington, D.C. was laid out by Freemason Pierre Charles L’Enfant and other folks too. Some French Knights of Malta were in the Order of Cincinnati.

The extremist Tucker Carlson recently said that America has the right to annihilate Iran, because Iran was evil. Iran isn't perfect, but there are tons of Iranians that desire a real, great system in their respective nation. Not all Iranians are monolithic in their thinking process. To ascribe a collective, faulty interpretaiton of all Iranians is representative of embracing ignorance not accuracy. This philosophy is embraced by some people who believe that Muslims are a bloody thirsty enemy (and Islam is represented as totally embracing never ending terrorism and bigotry). Of course, these views are false. Many extremists want the war on terror to act as religious crusade in order for the West to control Middle Eastern oil. There are still numerous progressive Muslims that desire equality, freedom, and authentic dialogue with the rest of humanity. There is still the myth repeated by American media and politicians that Iran’s President (Ahmadinejad) said that Israel should be “wiped off the map." The truth is that Ahmadinejad was talking about getting rid of the current political administration in Israel (as the New York Times translation notes) not destroying Israel off the face of the Earth. Ahmadinejad is quoting Ayatollah Khomeini. Even Arash Norouzi (who doesn't like the current Iranian leadership) admitted that Ahmadinejad didn't say that he wants Israel to be eliminated from the Earth. Many Orthodox Jewish people oppose the call for invading Iran. America overthrown Iran's democratically elected government. It backed Iraq during Iraq's war against Iran. The U.S. supports terrorist groups trying to overthrow the Iranian government. So, it's hypocritically to call for an attack of Iran when Iran hasn't preemptively invaded nations or overthrown governments in a long time. Even the Constitution is clear in saying that we shouldn't militarily intervene in any nation without Congressional approval & moral reasons. Tucker's father directed the Voice of America, which is a CIA operation according to sources. To advocate to attack and kill innocent men, women, and children (while stealing a nations wealth and resources in the process) is blatantly immoral. We have serious economic problems here. Another war could make our economic vitality more fragile and more unstable. Tucker opposes 9/11 Truth. That is why he criticized David Ray Griffin and Jesse Ventura for questioning the official story of 9/11. Griffin and Ventura has more evidence and credibility on discussing this issue than Tucker Carlson. No body has the right to annihilate everyone in a nation. That's Nazism. The American Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Dempsey said that the Pentagon believes that Iran "hasn't decided to make a nuclear weapon. Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said that an attack on Iran would be catastrophic. The reason is that Iran is an ally of Russia. An attack on Iran is equivalent to an attack on Russia according to Putin. That means that if Iran is attacked, Israel, NATO, and American forces could fight Russia along with Iran. This would cause an all out war, the economy in the world could suffer, and oil prices could rise radically (by the Straits of Hormuz being restricted of trade via oil supplies). So, we should hope that there will be no attack in Iran.

Now, we live in a new era of politics. People want to be free. They desire to free in America. They desire to be free in Europe when the Berlin Wall fell down. There were revolutionaries who fought to defeat apartheid in then fascistic South Africa. Then, Mandela came to be the first black African President of South Africa. During the 1960's, students and the youth fought for liberation in South Africa, Asia, and America. Today, many followers of the Occupy Movement have protested to demand economic fairness, and end to the war on terror, and real populist solutions to our present economic inequality. The insurgent workers in Wisconsin even began a new revitalization of the labor movement. For years, the labor movement has been dormant. Not anymore, since labor groups are strongly advancing the call for collective barganiang all over the nation. I am an egalitarian. In other words, I believe that all human beings are equal in the qualities of mind and character. There are, in the human race, people who are unjust, just, wise, and ignorant people. There is a common humanity and the inherit dignity of the human personality. That is all the more reason for us to not degrade a human being, because of his or her physical differences, personality differences, socioeconomic differences, or backgrounds. Decades ago, there was huge Jim Crow racism and exploitation. That experience was cruel, nefarious, and outright repugnant. Today, racism still exists in the world and we should fight against it now. Yet, our issues are more complex. There is economic injustice effecting a wide spectrum of people. This economic suffering affects the poor, people of every color, and people of every background or preference. There are people struggling to pay for health care. Some folks have to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to corporate insurance companies just to survive. There is an exorbitant amount of school debt that folks have to pay. Before Dr. King died, he created a multiracial coalition to promote the interests of the dispossessed. Dr. Martin Luther King's Poor Peoples Campaign even desired an Economic Bill of Rights to allow the federal government to be made accountable for its crimes against the poor in the USA. While, I do make critiques on the liberal establishment. I do not condemn sincere progressives in the Occupy Movement that want to make progressive changes in American society. Therefore, I will always place my views in intentional context. Even Malcolm X before he died made a radical critique of capitalism as a foundation of racism (like Dr. Martin Luther King believed. Dr. King felt that we should embrace a people oriented society instead of a thing oriented society). Modern day Goldwaters like Ron Paul may be correct on various issues, but not on public solutions to help the human race. For charity and private industries alone can never solve poverty or promote full individual liberty. You need an active public and private services avaliable for the people to develop their own standard of living. True human rights ought not to be divided into 50 different interpretations, but it should be uniform across the board in the nation including the world. Freedom ought to be demanded. Dr. King indeed was right to promote "...a RADICAL REDISTRIBUTION or economic and political power." The government is by of, and for the people, so people have the right to make demands on the government to genuinely make solutions in the world.

Fred Hampton was one of the warriors of liberation. He's an inspiration of black people. He's an inspiration of all people as well since he advocated power for all of the people. He lived a short life, but he made a wide impact in the world stage. He lived from August 30, 1948 to December 4, 1969. He was the chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party (BPP). He was born in Summit, Illinois and grew up in Maywood. His parents moved north from Louisiana. He worked in sports and graduated from Proviso East High School with honors back in 1966. He studied the law in order for him to be conversant with the law in defense against the police. He enrolled at Triton Junior College. Ironically, he was active in the NAACP to promote freedom and nonviolence for his community. He utilized his great organizational and leadership skills to improve educational resources for the impoverished black community in Maywood. He agreed with the Black Panther Party's philosophies. He started to ally with the BPP and adopted their 10 point program. He moved into downtown Chicago and joined the Party's Illinois chapter in November 1968. The Illinois chapter was created by SNCC (organizer Bob Brown in late 1967. In a short span of time from 1968 to 1969, he made significant achievements in Chicago. He made a nonaggression pact among Chicago's most powerful street gangs. He united factions of African Americans and Latino Americans, because both groups suffered poverty. He wanted to have a class conscious, multi-racial alliance between the BPP, the Young Patriots Organization, and the National Young Lords (under the leadership of Jose Cha Cha Jimenez). Others joined this coalition like the SDS, the Blackstone Rangers, the Brown Beres, and the Red Guard Party (of the Asian American community). In May 1969, Hampton called a press conference to announce that a truce had been declared among this "rainbow coalition," a phrase coined by Hampton and made popular over the years by Rev. Jesse Jackson (with his Rainbow PUSH Coalition). Fred Hampton had street smarts, book smarts, oratorical ability, and organizing skills. He was a threat to the corporate fascists. He supported the Free Breakfast Program. Fred Hampton was about to be appointed to the Party's Central Committee's Chief of Staff. At times, Fred utilized controversial language, but you have to realize what he been through. Folks were lynched, the police were killing innocent human beings at will (with no accountability against the officers), and conditions in our communities were bad (as they are now ironcally enough). So, we know where Fred Hampton was coming from. He was murdered by the CPD and the feds in the morning of December 4, 1969. The FBI monitored Hampton and tapped his mothers phone in February 1968. The FBI used the traitor & informant William O'Neal to cause dissension and infiltration of the Black Panthers. The FBI sowed distrust and division by forging a split between the Panthers and the Rangers. The FBI used disinformation to lie about brothers and sisters involving the BPP too. This was a part of the COINTELPRO plan that would try to stop the rise of a "Black Messiah" to radically improve the conditions of the black community. COINTELRPO harmed labor leaders, civil rights activists, anti-war activists, and a wide spectrum of revolutionaries who disagreed with the establishment. The police first shot Mark Clark and he died instantly. One man of the Panthers fired a weapon and the rest of bullets fired were from the crooked Chicago Police Department. The FBI agent Clark placed drugs or barbiturates in the drink of Fred Hampton. Therefore, Fred Hampton couldn't wake up during the time of the shooting. Fred was lying on a mattress in the bedroom with his pregnant girlfriend. Two officers found him wounded in the shoulder, and fellow Black Panther Harold Bell reported that he heard the following exchange (of the police killing Hampton in the head to make sure that Fred Hampton was dead). The rest of the Panthers were assaulted, wounded, and arrested. They were accused of false charged and each were held on US $ 100,000 bail. This atrocity occurred less than 45 years ago. Fred Hampton’s funeral was attended by 5,000 people. He was eulogized by Jesse Jackson and Ralph Abernathy (plus other). In his eulogy, Jackson noted that "when Fred was shot in Chicago, black people in particular, and decent people in general, bled everywhere." The coward William O'Neal committed suicide since he was responsible for his death like the other cops were. The families of Fred Hampton and Mark Clark stood strong and sued the city, state, and federal governments. The government was forced to pay the Hampton and Clark families for $1.85 million. If Fred Hampton was alive, he could of made not only Chicago better in solving gang violence, drugs, violence in general, etc. He could of made America better, because of his great organization skills, charisma, intellect, and oratory abilities. Fred Hampton to us liberty lovers of every background was a freedom fighter and a warrior for justice. He did a lot for his people. He was an inspiration for us to do what is right to improve the conditions at least for our family and people in our own communities.
