After Obama
by Victor Davis Hanson
Tribune Media Services

The next president will jettison the sort of class warfare that has led only to short-term political gain and long-term polarization.

Obama's "fat cats" and "one percenters" will disappear from the presidential vocabulary.

We will hear no more accusations that the successful really did not build their own businesses, or that they should have known when it was time not to profit because they had made quite enough money.

EXPECT JUST THE OPPOSITE: A BILL CLINTON-LIKE SCHMOOZING OF SMALL BUSINESSES TO PLEASE START BUYING, HIRING AND EXPANDING AGAIN.

Aside from the partisan furor over whether the Obama policies have worked — Democrats will say that things would have been worse without them; Republicans will insist that BECAUSE OF OBAMA, A NATURAL RECOVERY WAS TURNED INTO LONG-TERM DOLDRUMS — we will not see them continued.

We are institutionalizing, in European style, huge government, high unemployment, sluggish GDP growth, serial annual deficits, ballooning aggregate national debt and massive dependency, along with near-zero interest rates.

The two parties will disagree over the contours of this chronically weak economy, but not over the fact of its weakness — or soon, even its causes.

Most Americans will not wish to continue down the road to Italy or Spain (with record unemployment at over 25%).

BARACK OBAMA IS A LANDMARK FIGURE: YOUNG, CHARISMATIC, SEEMINGLY POST-NATIONAL AND SUPPOSEDLY POST-RACIAL. FOR THOSE REASONS ALONE, HE ENJOYS A LEVEL OF UNSHAKEABLE POLITICAL SUPPORT NOT PREDICATED ON THE ACTUAL RECORD OF HIS TENURE AS PRESIDENT

— IN THE MANNER MOST REMEMBER FONDLY THAT HE WON THE NOBEL PRIZE BUT DON'T QUITE KNOW WHAT HE DID TO EARN IT.

OBAMA'S ECONOMIC RECORD WILL BE DISPASSIONATELY ACKNOWLEDGED TO BE SIMILAR TO THAT OF JIMMY CARTER.

BUT, UNLIKE CARTER, OBAMA WILL REMAIN A MYTHICAL FIGURE IN LIBERAL CIRCLES.

To borrow a line from a classic Western, "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." And so we will do just that.

The Creation of A New Legend:“The Chechen Connection”

A new legend is unfolding:“The Chechen Connection” is threatening America. Islamism homegrown in the Russian Federation is now being “exported to America”.

Plastered on news tabloids across the United States, the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings on Patriots’ Day are relentlessly compared to September 11, 2001.

According to the Council of Foreign Relations:

Law enforcement agencies at all levels have made advances in surveillance and policing since the September 11, 2001 attacks, but security risks persist. Many counterterrorism experts call for a renewed focus on the ability of the United States to weather and recover from such incidents…(emphasis added)

Is the Boston tragedy being used by Washington to usher in a new wave of police state measures directed against different categories of “domestic terrorists?

Is this catastrophic event being applied to foster public reaction against Muslims?

Is it being used to build acceptance of America’s holy crusade –initiated during the Bush administration– directed against a number of Muslim countries, which allegedly “harbor Islamic terrorists”?

According to the powerful Council of Foreign Relations (which exerts a pervasive influence on both the White House and the State Department), the Boston bombings once again “raise the specter of terrorism on U.S. soil, highlighting the vulnerabilities of a free and open society”.(Ibid)

Counter terrorism and Martial Law –implying the suspension of civil liberties– rather than civilian law enforcement are the proposed solutions. In the words of Secretary of State John Kerry,‘‘I think it’s fair to say this entire week we’ve been in pretty direct confrontation with evil.’’

The unfolding mass media consensus (including that of Hollywood) is that America is once again under attack. This time, however, the alleged perpetrators are “Muslim terrorists” not from Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia but from the Russian Federation:

If a connection between the marathon bombing suspects and Chechen separatists was established, it would mark the first time militants from the former Soviet republic have launched a deadly attack outside Russia. Chechen insurgents deny any link to marathon bombing – U.S. News

“The Chechen Connection” has become embedded in a new media consensus. The American Homeland is potentially threatened by Muslim terrorists from the Russian Federation, who have links to Al Qaeda.

Al Qaeda and the CIA

The American public is misled. The media reports carefully overlook the historical origins of the Chechnya jihadist movement and its pervasive links to US intelligence.

The fact of the matter is that the jihadist movement is a creation of US intelligence, which has also led to the development of “political Islam”. While the role of the CIA in support of the Islamic jihad (including most Al Qaeda affiliated organizations) is amply documented, there is also evidence that the FBI has covertly equipped and incited would be terrorists within the US.(See James Corbett, The Boston Bombings in Context: How the FBI Fosters, Funds and Equips American Terrorists, Global Research April 17, 2013)

The CIA’s agenda starting in the late 1970s was to recruit and train jihadist “freedom fighters”(Mujahideen) to wage “a war of liberation” directed against the pro-Soviet secular government of Afghanistan.

Ronald Reagan meets Afghan Jihadist Commanders at the White House in 1985 (Reagan Archives)

The “Islamic Jihad”(or holy war against the Soviets) became an integral part of the CIA’s intelligence ploy. It was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia, with a significant part of the funding generated from the Golden Crescent drug trade:

“In March 1985, President Reagan signed National Security Decision Directive 166 …[which] authorize[d] stepped-up covert military aid to the Mujahideen, and it made clear that the secret Afghan war had a new goal: to defeat Soviet troops in Afghanistan through covert action and encourage a Soviet withdrawal. The new covert U.S. assistance began with a dramatic increase in arms supplies — a steady rise to 65,000 tons annually by 1987 … as well as a “ceaseless stream” of CIA and Pentagon specialists who travelled to the secret headquarters of Pakistan’s ISI on the main road near Rawalpindi, Pakistan. There, the CIA specialists met with Pakistani intelligence officers to help plan operations for the Afghan rebels.”(Steve Coll, The Washington Post, July 19, 1992.)

Mujahideen from a large number of Muslim countries were recruited by the CIA. Jihadists from the Muslim republics (and autonomous regions) of the Soviet Union were also recruited.(For further analysis see Michael Chossudovsky, Al Qaeda and the “War on Terrorism”, Global Research, January 20, 2008)

Al Qaeda and the Chechnya Jihad

Chechnya is an autonomous region of the Russian Federation.

Among the recruits for specialized training in the early 1990s was the leader of the Chechnya rebellion Shamil Basayev who –in the immediate wake of the Cold War– led Chechnya’s first secessionist war against Russia.

During his training in Afghanistan, Shamil Basayev linked up with Saudi born veteran Mujahideen Commander “Al Khattab” who had fought as a volunteer in Afghanistan. Barely a few months after Basayev’s return to Grozny, Khattab was invited (early 1995) to set up an army base in Chechnya for the training of Mujahideen fighters. According to the BBC, Khattab’s posting to Chechnya had been “arranged through the Saudi-Arabian based [International] Islamic Relief Organisation, a militant religious organisation, funded by mosques and rich individuals which channeled funds into Chechnya”.(BBC, 29 September 1999).

a chorus of high school students in the Future Democrats of the One World Club will sing the Hamas National Anthem. to belong to the FDAC requires a tiny vocabulary, no self-discipline, poor nutrtion, terrible sleep habits, unstable home lives and emotional, behavioral and developmental problems. but they all will get trophies and attend ivy league schools as foreign students studying The Sociology of Transgenders and whose college records will be sealed.

Time to Renounce the “War on Terror,As a perpetual emotion machine — producing and guzzling its own political fuel — the “war on terror” continues to normalize itself as a thoroughly American way of life and death. Ongoing warfare has become a matter of default routine, pushed along by mainline media and the leadership of both parties in Washington. Without a clear and effective upsurge of opposition from the grassroots, Americans can expect to remain citizens of a war-driven country for the rest of their lives.Across the United States, many thousands of peeling bumper stickers on the road say:“End this Endless War.” They got mass distribution from MoveOn.org back in 2007, when a Republican was in the White House. Now, a thorough search of the MoveOn website might leave the impression that endless war ended with the end of the George W. Bush presidency.

MoveOn is very big as online groups go, but it is symptomatic of a widespread problem among an array of left-leaning organizations that have made their peace with the warfare state. Such silence assists the Obama administration as it makes the “war on terror” even more resolutely bipartisan and further embedded in the nation’s political structures — while doing immense damage to our economy, siphoning off resources that should go to meet human needs, further militarizing society and undermining civil liberties.

Now, on Capitol Hill, the most overt attempt to call a halt to the “war on terror” is coming from Rep. Barbara Lee, whose bill H.R. 198 would revoke the Authorization for Use of Military Force that Congress approved three days after 9/11. Several months since it was introduced, H.R. 198 only has a dozen co-sponsors.

Meltdown in progress!

Did you hear about the new theory of not putting diapers on your baby? You have to learn to notice the signs on your babies face when he's about to take a dump and run him to the toilet. It'll be great for the environment, but, in your alley in the projects, it'll be brutal, better buy a shovel.
You're pretty good at shovelling shyt anyway so it's a no brainer.
