Out of the Mouths of Babes_ A 3rd Grader Just Exposed Trump*

Out of the Mouths of Babes_ A 3rd Grader Just Exposed Duck Trump*

Eight-year-old Jackson Wheeless, a 3rd grader at Millis Road Elementary in Jamestown, North Carolina, has written a stunning letter to the Republican frontrunner Donald Trump ripping him off for his disturbing, ugly and dangerous campaign – summing up exactly why he shouldn’t be the President of the United States of America.

Wheeless penned the epic letter to Trump after his teacher, Mrs. Brown, encouraged her students to watch current world news and read current news articles to become more informed about the world around them. His mother, Kelley Wheeless, told WXII12.com that

“the research and writing behind the letter started in the beginning of the school’s quarter, when his accelerated class was instructed to pick four projects out of a total of six or eight to complete by the end of the quarter. One option was to write a letter to a celebrity.”

He came running home from school and immediately was trying to get on the computer because he wanted to send a letter to Donald Trump. And I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ What do you know about Donald Trump? He said, ‘Not really anything except what everybody says at school, and I want to see if it’s true. Can I do this?’”

As he wisely pointed out, children need leaders they can look up to, and what Donald Trump utters is inappropriate for a 3rd grader and flat-out terrifies adults. Wheeless wrote:

“I have read several articles about you and have seen you on the television. I think you have been very rude to many people.

“I would like for you to know that kids are watching you. The president of the United States is supposed to be our leader. You should be someone that we can learn from and hope to grow up to be like. I do not think you are doing a very good job of this. I know that you are talking to adults when you give your speeches, because they are the ones that can vote. It is important for you to remember that children are watching and hearing you, too. Someday, we will also be able to vote. Someday, we will be the ones running for President.”

“I learned about The Golden Rule when I was VERY young. How would you feel if people said some of these terrible things about you that I have heard you say about them? I would like to know if you would want your young children or grandchildren hearing the things that you say about people? Do you ever feel sorry about the things that you say that are hurtful to others? I have never heard you apologize.”

I saw a video of you making fun of a handicapped reporter, and I thought that was TERRIBLE! My friends and I talked about that at school. What would happen if young people decided that it was OK to make fun of handicapped people after watching you do that on national TV? Bullying is already a HUGE problem, and it is NOT OK! I feel like you could make that problem much worse!”

You bragged that you “could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” and wouldn’t lose any votes. I REALLY hope this is not true! You make kids afraid when they hear that someone who could be our next President would even think of doing something like that!”

Please, Mr. Trump, start thinking about the children in this country. We may not be able to vote yet, but we are the future. I think it is important for us to have a kind, honest, caring person as our leader that we can look up to and respect. I am in the student government this year at my school. I try to be a student that everyone can look up to. I will grow up to be a husband, a father, hopefully a police officer, and a good friend. I will choose to be a better person than what you have been teaching me to be. I will live like my parents, teachers, and church leaders have taught me to be. Some kids don’t have don’t have great adults in their life like I do. Please try to remember that!”

Many would suggest that Wheeless couldn’t have possibly written the letter. But is a 3rd grader too young to have an opinion? Or is it unusual for a 8-year-old to have more sense than many adults? The fact that Americans will question who wrote this letter, the son or the mother, than what is conveyed, says a lot about their priorities. The fact that Donald Trump can gain so much popularity from his racist and hateful remarks may say more about the American people than Trump himself.

Hiding in the U.S Ireland to Prosecute Top Banker for Destroying Their Economy*

Hiding in the U.S Ireland to Prosecute Top Banker for Destroying Their Economy*

moneyblackholeBy Claire Bernish

A former head of a major Irish bank has been extradited from the U.S. and brought before Dublin District Court to face several charges stemming from the bank’s role in the 2008 financial crisis.

David Drumm, former chief executive of Irish Anglo Bank from 2005 until 2008, had been arrested in Boston in October 2015, and originally attempted to fight extradition — but he recently withdrew the objection and was returned to Ireland early on Monday.

Drumm faces 33 charges in Ireland, which echoes Iceland’s unprecedented move to hold its bankers criminally accountable for their role in that country’s economic meltdown. Though Drumm predictably denied wrongdoing, his charges include “fraud, forgery, misleading management reporting, unlawful lending, falsifying documents, and false accounting, linked to financial transactions prior to the collapse of Anglo,” according to the Irish Times.

Former CEO of Anglo Irish Bank David Drumm arrives at the Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin this morning.

Though prosecutors consider Drumm a flight risk — after all, he seemed to be seeking safe haven inside the United States — the court allowed the ex-banker to post bail under several conditions. Drumm’s passport is currently being held by the Gardaí (Garda Síochána, or Irish Police), and under the bail arrangement, he assured the court he would not apply for another and does not possess a U.S. passport. Seven of Drumm’s relatives offered to put their houses on the line as ‘security’ for his bail, though the judge only required four names.

As RT reported, Drumm is alleged to have participated in transactions totalling around €7 billion between Anglo and a second lending institution, Irish Life and Permanent. Anglo “posted the worst corporate results in Irish history with losses of €17.5 billion for 2010.”

Drumm came to the United States in 2009, and reportedly refused to cooperate with an investigation. Prosecutors fear his “capacity to marshal significant sums” of money adds to the possibility Drumm could easily disappear. However, his solicitor argued that in order to better prepare his defence — including sorting through the “millions of documents” and nearly 400 hours of phone conversations — Drumm needed to remain out of prison. As the Times noted, two “books” of evidence will need to be heard by the court — one of which entails bringing 120 witnesses to testify. The former banking executive has not yet entered a formal plea. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison if found guilty.

Iceland, and now Ireland, have taken action to hold criminal bankers accountable for their direct role in the economic devastation which enveloped most of the world beginning in 2008 — the exact opposite of what the U.S. does.

As of October, Iceland’s criminal bankers had been sentenced to a combined 74 years in prison — with others awaiting trial. Then, the sale of one of its national banks meant a payout, albeit small, for every Icelandic citizen. The U.S. notoriously and controversially bailed out its banks — essentially rewarding them, or at least, excusing them for the crisis they created. Drumm was ordered by the judge to remain in Ireland. Notably, according to RT, the Irish ex-banker has appealed a U.S. court’s refusal to grant him bankruptcy on over €10 million of debt

Israel has blocked Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi’s entry into the occupied West Bank, where she was set to hold talks with Palestinian leaders, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry says.

The Palestinian ministry said in a statement on Sunday that Israel refused to allow Marsudi to visit the the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, where she planned to meet with Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas and her counterpart Riyad al-Malki.

The top Indonesian diplomat also planned to open an honorary consular office in the Palestinian city, the ministry noted.

According to the statement, Marsudi and a high-level accompanying delegation will instead meet Malki in neighbouring Jordan.

Reports by Israeli media said that the Indonesian foreign minister was refused access to Ramallah after declining to meet with Israeli officials. Israel and Indonesia do not have formal diplomatic ties.

This comes as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) recently called for a global ban on products from illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The global body made its request during the 5th Extraordinary OIC Summit on Palestine and Al-Quds al-Sharif in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, which was attended by representatives from 57 countries, including Abbas.

The OIC urged “member states and the wider international community to ban products produced in or by illegal Israeli settlements from their markets.”

More than half a million Israelis live in over 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem (al-Quds). The Israeli settlements are regarded as unlawful by the United Nations and most countries.

The developments also come as the occupied Palestinian territories have been the scene of heightened tensions triggered by Israel’s imposition in August 2015 of restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds.

Nearly 200 Palestinians, including women and children, have been killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of last October.

Syria Forces Backed by Russian Airstrikes Advance toward Palmyra*

Syria Forces Backed by Russian Airstrikes Advance toward Palmyra*

By Jim W. Dean

[Editor’s Note:  This is the first report showing Russia withdrawing and attacking at the same time, on the day after Putin’s pullback announcement. This sent a needed signal to the Syrian people that Moscow will remain in the offensive against ISIL and al-Nusra until they are defeated.

But we will need to see if between the Russians and Syrian Air Force there are enough planes to rub air operations in the Idlib, Aleppo, Raqqa, Palmyra and Deir ez-Zor areas where Syrians are suffering under the boot of a very unhappy and nasty ISIL as the war turns against them.

As to news of the Geneva talks, incredibly there is nothing today yet at 12 pm EST, on the second day. That indicates that the foreign backed opposition is waiting for instructions on what to say.

Staffan  de Mistura was quick to support the Russian pull back as supportive of creating a less hostile climate for the real opposition groups that are wanted in the talks.

The showdown is going to come when there are enough “oppositionists”, as the Russians are now calling them, on board to have substantive talks, where those wanting to wreck them can be shown the door. What will those that get kicked out, or walk out do? And we are yet to see any reaction from Turkey. By Friday we will know a lot more Jim W. Dean ]

Syrian forces backed by Russian airstrikes have made major gains to the west of the central city of Palmyra, which is held by the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group, a report says.

The Syrian troops were supported by “heavy air cover from Russian jets,” the Lebanese satellite television station affiliated with the resistance movement of Hezbollah reported on Tuesday.

On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the bulk of Syria-based Russian military forces to withdraw from the conflict-ridden country. The pullout process started on Tuesday.

Putin’s order came hours after the new round of indirect peace talks between the Damascus government and the foreign-backed opposition, aimed at resolving of the five-year deadly crisis in Syria, resumed in Geneva, Switzerland.

The negotiations are underway as a ceasefire has stood in Syria since February 27.

U.N. Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said the Russian drawdown was a “significant development.”

“We hope it will have a positive impact on the progress of the negotiations in Geneva aimed at achieving a political solution to the Syrian conflict and a peaceful political transition in the country,” de Mistura said in a statement released on Tuesday.

The European Union also welcomed Russia’s announcement that it was pulling out its troops from Syria.

Catherine Ray, a spokeswoman for the E.U’s foreign service, said, “Any steps that help achieve de-escalation of violence inside Syria and the prolongation of the cessation of hostilities is very important for the overall peace process.”

Russia launched an aerial campaign against terrorist groups in Syria last September upon a request from Damascus.

According to a February report by the Syrian Centre for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people and displaced nearly half of Syria’s pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.

The Clinton’s Eugenics Agenda in Haiti*

The Clinton’s Eugenics Agenda in Haiti*

By Jeffrey St. Clair, Alexander Cockburn

Cut through all of Hillary Clinton’s reassuring lingo about “empowering women” and consider the realities of Clintonian population policy in Haiti.

As revealed in an internal U.S. Agency for International Development report, the fundamental goal of the American government is to keep the natives from breeding.

The June, 1993, document (unearthed by Ken Silverstein in CounterPunch) states policy “targets” for Haiti baldly: to obtain 200,000 new “acceptors” of contraception; a “social marketing component” target of “6,000 cycles of pills/month,” and the establishment of 23 facilities to provide sterilizations–soothingly referred to as “voluntary surgical contraception,” a goal that has been exceeded.

There is no mention of any “targets” with regard to women’s health.

The cynicism of the “empowerment” rhetoric is also apparent in the memo’s main recommendation, the “de-medicalization or liberalization of service delivery.” The agency suggests “elimination of the practice of requiring physician visits” before doling out hormonal methods.

In plainer English, this means that AID feels that doctors in Haiti need not waste time with pelvic exams or pap smears; just get the “acceptors” on stream with the hormonal method of choice.

A Brooklyn-based Haitian women’s group, Women of Koalisyon, published a pamphlet detailing abuses at clinics in Haiti funded by AID.

Local clinics offered food and money to encourage sterilization. “Acceptors” were promised that vasectomies were not only reversible, but would help prevent AIDS. Women were offered clothing in exchange for agreeing to use Norplant (the five-year contraceptive implant), which led to a host of problems including constant bleeding, headaches, dizziness, nausea, radical weight loss, depression and fatigue. Demands that the Norplant rods be taken out were obstructed.

Such brute realities of population control are rarely mentioned in the United States, where reports from the U.N. population conference in Cairo have depicted a clash between libertarian respect for individual choice and the medieval tyranny of the Catholic or Muslim clergy. The Clinton Administration is not the first to flaunt its concern for individual rights where such issues are concerned. Back in 1974, in Nixon’s White House, Henry Kissinger commissioned National Security Study Memorandum 200, which addressed population issues.

Prefiguring the current “empowerment” shoe polish, Kissinger stressed that the United States should

help minimize charges of imperialist motivation behind its support of population activities by repeatedly asserting that such support derives from a concern with the right of the individual to determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of children.”

But the true concern of Kissinger’s analysts was maintenance of U.S. access to Third World resources. They worried that the “political consequences” of population growth could produce internal instability in nations “in whose advancement the United States is interested.” With famine and food riots and the breakdown of social order in such countries, “the smooth flow of needed materials will be jeopardized.”

The authors of the report noted laconically that the United States, with 6% of the world’s population, used about a third of its resources. Curbs on Third World population would ensure that local consumption would not increase, and possibly affect availability of Third World resources. As a natural extension of this logic, the report favored sterilization over food aid.

By 1977, Reimert Ravenholt, the director of AID’s population program, was saying that his agency’s goal was to sterilize one-quarter of the world’s women. The gearing between Third World fecundity and First World prosperity is still a core policy theme. The immensely wealthy Pew Charitable Trusts–a cluster of foundations with an abiding interest in population control, recently issued a report that stated frankly:

“The average American’s interest in maintaining high standards of living has been a prime motivator for U.S. population policy from its earliest formation and it is likely that this will continue for the foreseeable future.”

In other words, the issue is distribution. But distribution raises uncomfortable questions of social justice. Sterilization, along with less drastic inhibitors, is far easier, particularly when it is made palatable to the liberal conscience by being tricked out in the verbal bunting of “empowerment” and “respect for the rights of women.”

Three days of peaceful assemblies, non-partisan citizens’ marches and rallies at Federal Parliament and around Australia to protest against government decisions that are against the common good of our nation.

This signifies a ‘people’s vote of no confidence’ in government policies and decisions that go against common principles of humanity, decency, fairness, social justice and equity, democratic governance, responsible global citizenship and conserving our natural heritage.
