Our interventionist foreign policy is the gift that keeps on giving. Is there any Middle Eastern country that we haven’t screwed up yet? Oh yeah – Iran. Give Obama and McCain time. That will be the clusterfuck that destroys the world.

I love the fact that the spelling on all of the signs is correct.  If this was in the US half of the spelling would be wrong.

Motorhead's picture

Thankfully the spelling wasn't in cursive, too.  None of Travon's friends (star witnesses) would be able to read it.

I bet they can read "curses" too.

It's not. read the smaller print in photo of Paterson with a red X through her. They start using P instead of B

I Like the "Obama backs a fascist regime in Egypt" poster, Nice to know that we in the USA aren't the only ones similarly suffering.

I can assure you, having had conversations with friends who were born and raised in Iran, that Iranians view our support for, and the failures of the Shah, back in the 1950's, as unwelcome meddling and general obnoxiousness.  Frankly, I can see their point.  My protestations that this was part of insuring that the cold war did not go hot, were not really considered acceptible.  

I can see both sides of intervention/non-intervention.  Somehow, I'd imagine simply leaving something alone, does not assure that this thing might not grow to be an enormous threat (e.g. Weimar Germany grew to warlike Germany without much intervention), and yet, I see that stupidly designed and implemented action is probably even more likely to generate threatening foreign national sentiment. 

These latest actions do not seem the least be well thought out. They seem to be born out of something else entirely.  I'd say that the only thing worse than this kind of foolishness is the foolishness that says: "my vote doesn't count...I'm sitting this one out....".

You are one ignorant MoFo!

"Weimar Germany grew to warlike Germany without much intervention"

In 1936 the Nazi Schroeder Bank in New York merges with the Rockefeller interests to form Schroeder, Rockefeller & Company, Inc.

Carlton P. Fuller of Schroeder Banking Corporation is made president and Avery Rockefeller, nephew of John D. Rockefeller, owns 42% and is made vice president.

Baron Bruno von Schroeder and his cousin, Kurt von Schroeder of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Gestapo, own 47 percent.

Nazi shyster Allen Dulles serves on the board of the Schroeder Bank. Nazi shyster John Foster Dulles is the bank's legal counsel. The German parent bank acts as the financial arm of the Nazi Party and will, in the next few years, siphon large sums of money from the U.S. to Nazi Germany.

Prescott Bush, grandfather of George "I'm A Lyin' Guy" Bush, hires Nazi shyster and financier Allen Dulles to create a massive legal smokescreen behind which to conceal his dealings on behalf of the Thyssen steel interests, major backers and financiers of Adolf Hitler.

Do some homework before posting on ZH!

You left out how Henry Ford and others helped Hitler build his war machine that killed millions.  Ford was anti-semetic to the core

DavidPierre's picture


Beginning in 1923 George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, is the Managing Director of the notorious investment bank, Brown Brothers, Harriman, from the 1920s through the 1940s and, like his father Samuel Bush, becomes a devoted lifelong minion of the Harrimans, one of the leading families in the U.S. ruling class.

In league with Averell W. Harriman and his younger brother, E. Roland Harriman, Bush serves as front man for and facilitates investment in and for a score of Nazi businesses.

Bush, the Harrimans, the Rockefeller family, Standard Oil, the Duponts, the Morgans and the Fords provide funding for the Hitler Project, financing Adolf Hitler's rise to power and the takeover of Germany starting in 1923. This includes direct funding of the SS (Schutzstaffel or Black Shirts) and the SA (Sturmabteilung, storm troops or Brown Shirts).

The "approved" version of Hitler's rise to power has the German people, economically devastated by the First World War and the destructive terms of the Treaty of Versailles (written by the Dulles brothers, the Morgans and the Warburgs among others) embracing Hitler as their savior. In fact, it took some 300,000 SS and SA thugs, armed and financed by the Rockefellers, Fords, Bushes, Harrimans, Duponts et al to terrorize the German people into submission to the Nazis.

These same thugs assassinated more than four hundred German politicians who had the courage to oppose Nazism.

The cash supplied by the American ruling class to the SS and SA is channeled through a variety of German companies by International Telephone and Telegraph (IT&T).

Virtually all of the weapons used by the SS and SA to terrorize the German people, primarily Thomson submachine guns and pistols, are supplied by the Rockefellers' Remington Arms and carried to Germany by the Harriman-controlled Hamburg-Amerika line fronted by George W. Bush's great grandfather, Herbert W. Walker.

The Rockefellers’ Chase Manhattan Bank serves as a major source of finance for the Nazis and, as the Nazis send Jews, Gypsies, socialists and other “sub-humans” to the gas chambers in accordance with the eugenics agenda promulgated by the American ruling class, closes the accounts of its Jewish customers.

Chase will continue to serve as banker for the Nazis even after Germany declares war on the U.S.

Joseph Kennedy, multi-millionaire bootlegger, Mafia associate, stock market swindler and founder of the Kennedy political dynasty, is a major contributor of capital to the Nazis via Prescott Bush. Kennedy is a vocal anti-Semite and pro-Nazi who later becomes U.S. Ambassador to Britain. His pro-Nazi statements do much to mold U.S. public opinion.

In 1946 the U.S. government releases a film entitled "Death Stations" documenting the liberation of Nazi concentration camps. In May, Henry Ford, who had been awarded Nazi Germany's Grand Cross of the Order of the German Eagle for his invaluable contributions to the Third Reich, attends a private showing of the film at the auditorium of the Ford plant in Rouge River, Michigan.

Ford executives are horrified by the gruesome images of the Majdanek concentration camp in Lublin, Poland which had been liberated by Soviet troops in July 1944.

When the movie ends Adolf Hitler's greatest inspiration and one of his main arms suppliers, the man who ran the "arsenal of Nazism" according to the U.S. Army, is found slumped in his seat, barely conscious.

Sitting there witnessing at least part of the Nazi atrocities he was instrumental in unleashing upon the world, Ford had suffered a massive stroke, from which he would never fully recover.

Perhaps, after all, there some sort of God.

 When asked in 1933, by a reporter for the Detroit News, why he keeps a life-sized portrait of Henry Ford in his office, Adolf Hitler replies, “I regard Henry Ford as my inspiration.

They elected this dude. I'm sure in a year they will be ready to hang the next guy they pick and that will be Obama's fault too. 

marcusfenix's picture

look at these guys assembling in public places, marching around, holding sings, petitioning their government for a redress of grievances,  associating freely with others like-minded. taking to the streets and asserting their will, voicing what is very clearly an anti-government position...

god, I'm starting to hate these Egyptians for their freedoms...

And not one of the 100,000 all-day and all-night protesters pitching about the complete lack of porta-potties.

The US Mainstream media really are in the business of covering up the news, not reporting it!  Of course they would never report what Egyptians on the streets are saying about Obama and the USA. Just like the Media does not report the murdering of Christians by the foreign terrrorists on Syrian soil that NATO arms, funds and trains. No, do you see them beheading Christians in publlic executions? Of course not, these Jihadist killers are not held to account by US corporate media. The meida has become an agent of US foreign policy and a cheer leader for Government Police state formation at home.

The fact that the US media hides, covers up and totally fails to report on or investigate is the morphing of the USA into a One Party State that is primarily operated by the elites of America. These elites fall into various groups with similar interests and they operate in a loose alliance to control and manipulate the Government via a campaign system that allows open bribery and kick backs. The elites could roughly be classed as part of these groups. The Military Industrial Complex, The Financial Services Industry, Banks and Wall-Street trading houses, Government employees,  the pro Israel religious crowd and members of America's great monied families. Others come and go, but the members of the power elites usually fit into and further the interests of these groups. Simply look at foreign and domestic policies, and you can see how these interests are served.

Where Media really comes into it's own is as a vast propaganda and marketing agency for the interests of these elites. And TV news shows or newspapers will spout news that makes the elites control over American minds more and more firm. The media does not need to take orders from Washington, they are owned by major corporations and their boards, thus the news is carefully crafted to present what the corporate sector wants Americans to know.  Channels like CNN and FOX are totally shameless in how they report straight from the Washington playbook, and what they DO NOT report to Americans is MORE IMPORTANT than what they DO REPORT!

Be it the lingering recession/depression, to the US support of a terrorist army in Syria, to the crimes of Washington based secret police agencies, the US media lies, covers up and diverts America's attention. The greatest enemy to the "Powers That Be" seems to be the spread of blogs and alternative news sites on the internet. "Zero Hedge" being the greatest example of real news and commentary on the web that absolutely DESTROYS the main stream media lie machine. Others exist as well, but ZH is a model of exposing real news and economic data that the Government and Corporate America, especially the banks and military do NOT want Americans to know.

The US Government is putting in place a vast police state in service of the banking elites and the new class of military elites. Along the way they use social issues to divert and divide Americans by playing to personal religious and social opinions that really are open to being played upon by the political rulers. Be aware that these social issues are the poison that Washington's rulers use with the help of Public Relations experts and Advertising experts to drive Americans to endless play the game of Two party politics. While honest Americans are taught to hate each other over gays, guns and god, behind that social issues agenda, the one party state works as virtual dictators of a domestic policy that favours the 1% and furthers state control over all aspects of American life. The two party system uses social issues of no real consequence to divide the people into tow different camps who hate each other. All this is just what the rulers have prepared vis their ownership of the media.

The true story of Egyptian anger at US meddling in the Egyptian political system will nevr be reported by the State controlled US media. Just like all the other stories will not be told. They will instead, divert, divide and entertain the US people with a news agenda that is little short of thought control, just a milder form of what George Orwell wrote about in "1984".

Our only weapon is the interent, our only way to communicate with other desenters and to access real news and opinion such as Zero Hedge excels at. To my way of thinking, the rulers in Washington and their military and corporate masters must be racking their brains thinking of a way to shut down the freedom of thought that internet sites like ZH feed.

I'll be surprised if Zimmerman is not acquited.  That should create some diversion and division. 

Looks like NBC may have to pay for their part in hyping this into a big racial issue:


lakecity55's picture

I think the whole point IS to get him acquitted, so as to start riots and increase Gestapo Activity.

Legolas's picture

Agreed.  I'm just glad it didn't go to the jury today.  Would have been a perfect setup for a horrible 4th of July holiday, maximizing impact by destroying public events.


I think we avoided MAYHEM until another day.

krispkritter's picture

He should sue the fuck out of them.  Tray-tray's ever-not-so-present parents promptly sued the Homeowners Assoc. and raked in a reported 7-figure settlement and meanhile trademarked his name.  Talk about the 'Ghetto Lottery'.  If Zimmerman is acquitted, the HOA should get their money back, Zimmerman should win against NBC, and the 'special' prosecutor should be disbarred.

knightowl77's picture

the so called "special" prosecutor should go to PRISON for bringing Zimmerman to trial...political correctness again puts the innocent on trial

YHC-FTSE's picture


Yep. Same with our British media.  I posted last night that I took a gander at all the terrestrial news channels in the evening and they bore no relation to reality whatsoever.  I call their antics, "Lying by ommission". 

Jack Burton's picture

Ideed, lying by ommission is exactly what the media does. Imagine that when I was a youngster, I listened to BBC world service to get the real news on the radio. Surely one would not tune into the BBC to get anything that resembles the real news now-a-days. Their, the BBC's, surrender to the ruling elites has been total and shamelss!

The Main Stream Media is a giant Hoax, delivering only what our rulers think is fit for us to see, read or hear. Without places like ZH, there would be no hope in the world.

smacker's picture

For information...

BBC World Service Radio used to be very good because it was an entirely separate organisation to BBC Domestic, funded separately with its own journalists and management system. They simply couldn't get the worldwide listeners if they spewed propaganda. But several years ago the BBC merged WS news/current affairs operations into the domestic structure to save money. I have since noticed a marked deterioration in BBC WS output, where garbage news reports are shared between the two broadcasts.

The BBC is the mouthpiece of the British Establishment.

Screw the main stream media.

Just give me the facts as is done on ZH.

I can make up my own damn mind.

MSM=foder for the free shit nation.

I especially like the banner "We know what you did last summer."

smacker's picture

Yep, the logos of the Salafi Al Nour Party and Obama's campaign logo are frightening similar.

Is Obama a secret advocate of Sharia law???


Here's what Wiki has to say about the Salafi Al Nour Party:

"The al?Nour Party (Arabic: ??? ?????‎, ?izb Al?N?r) ("Party of The Light") is one of the political parties created in Egypt after the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. It has an ultra-conservative Islamist ideology, which believes in implementing strict Sharia law."

I think the "Party of Darkness" would be a far more appropriate description.

Didn't he speak in Cairo a few years ago? That really got them on our side. Maybe he can go speak to them again right now to calm them down - he's still on the same Continent - just a few more millions for the jet fuel and the security detail and it's done.

Love the pics but it's a little suspect to see signs written in English.  I'm pretty sure the Occupy and Tea Party protests didn't have any signs written in the Arabic or Cyrillic alphabets.

ross81's picture

A good portion of those anti-Morsi Egyptians on the streets are likely well educated, secularist, middle class & young so it's not really a surprise to see English signs.

Joe Sixpack's picture

Not all the English is that good, and some of the signs are mixed English Arabic, and at least one looks to be Italian/French/Spanish (but clear what it means in English). Clearly some of the Egyptians want to send a message to those who support Morsi externally.
