New Anti-Russian Hysteria July 3, 2020 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet

New Anti-Russian Hysteria

      Intelligence “Officials” have made claims, without providing evidence, that Russia secretly offered Afghan militants Bounties to kill US troops. Remember these same Intelligence Services and “officials” lied about WMDs (Weapons of Mass Destruction) in Iraq. Those lies led to the illegal U.S. invasion of Iraq and endless war in the region including millions of people killed, wounded, displaced, and widespread destruction and chaos.

      Make no mistake. I am not a supporter of Donald Trump. Far from it. But I am raising the alarm and important questions: Are we being lied to again? And where could such lies lead? Iraq had no WMDs. Russia is a nuclear power. Amid a global Covid Pandemic, massive economic disruption threatening a global depression, climate catastrophe, etc. do we want a nuclear war too? 
                                                                  

       Mainstream and social media are on fire with angry pundits, anti-Trump politicians demanding action against Russia. A new wave of anti-Russia hysteria is being whipped up. In contrast, is the voice of Scott Ritter. a former US Marine Corps intelligence officer. He served in the Soviet Union as an inspector implementing the INF Treaty, in General Schwarzkopf’s staff during the Gulf War, and from 1991-1998 as a UN weapons inspector.  Ritter wrote a piece that everyone needs to read and ponder in the midst of this anti-Russia hysteria.

      The initial report of Russia offering bounties to kill US troops came from the NY Times. Ritter says “There was just one problem — nothing in the New York Times could be corroborated. Indeed, there is no difference between the original reporting conducted by the New York Times, and the “confirming” reports published by the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. All of the reports contain caveats such as “if confirmed” and “if true,” while providing no analysis into the potential veracity of the information used to sustain the report — alleged debriefs of Afghan criminals and militants — or the underpinning logic, or lack thereof, of the information itself.” Ritter raises a lot of other questions.

Trump Disbans

Coronavirus Task Force

as U.S. Death Toll Mounts – topping 71,000

on May 5, 2020

It appears that Trump is trying to wash his bloody hands of responsibility for the mounting death toll, his slow response, lack of tests, protective equipment, etc. Instead, he is trying to dump responsibility on to State Governors and at the same time blame and bully China to take the focus off his poor leadership. China now warns of possible war with the U.S. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55135.htm

                  Trump orchestrates Military Propaganda Air Shows throughout the U.S.                   

                                                                             blue

      Six planes each Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels (total of 12 planes) costing over $20,000 per hour per plane to fly are involved.   Military propaganda shows are planned all across the US over the next few weeks as a so called “salute to Covid 19 responders and frontline workers.” 

      Let’s cancel the propaganda shows and give the funds instead to the frontline workers and/or for protective equipment  and testing for Covid 19.  It’s bloated military spending that has stolen funds to prepare for pandemics like Covid 19 and to provide Medicare and basic income for all people.

Earth Day film — Planet of the Humans

Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late. Removed from the debate is the only thing that MIGHT save us: getting a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption. Why is this not THE issue? Because that would be bad for profits, bad for business. Have we environmentalists fallen for illusions, “green” illusions, that are anything but green, because we’re scared that this is the end—and we’ve pinned all our hopes on biomass, wind turbines, and electric cars? No amount of batteries are going to save us, warns director Jeff Gibbs (lifelong environmentalist and co-producer of “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Bowling for Columbine”). This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way—before it’s too late.
