Pageantry at Tel Aviv: America’s neglect funds $BILLIONS in Israeli aggression, welfare

Self-eating, lies 

Neglected children
“Americans who are going to bed hungry only want to see and hear just so much about life in Israel, the endless free time, the beaches, how all hard work is performed by one million foreign nationals who do the shopping, cook the food, run the farms and factories, leaving real Israelis to enjoy the existence of H.G. Well’s “Eloli” from his novel, The Time Machine,” Duff wrote.

Wikipedia note: Eloi in The Time Machine: “The Eloi are the childlike, frail group, living a banal life of ease on the surface of the earth, while the Morlocks live underground, tending machinery and providing food, clothing and infrastructure for the Eloi. Each class evolved and degenerated from humans.

The novel suggests that the separation of species may have been the result of a widening split between different social classes. The main difference from their earlier ruler-worker state is that, while the Morlocks continue to support the world’s infrastructure and serve the Eloi, the Eloi have undergone significant physical and mental deterioration.

While one initially has the impression that the Eloi people live a life of play and toil-less abundance, it is revealed that the Morlocks are attending to the Eloi’s needs for the same reason a farmer tends cattle; the Morlocks use the Eloi for food. This is why there are no old people, and why the Eloi seem to fear the dark.

“The American entertainment industry may have to take a spare moment away from its glorification of torture and abuse, its demonization of ‘the inferior races’ and return to its role of incessant victimization mythology. If this fails, Israel may find its free ride on the ‘gravy \train’ at an end.”

A December 10, 2012, Glenn Greenwald article addresses a dark Hollywood case, “Zero Dark Thirty,” in which he asks and answers the question: “Can a movie that relies on fabrications to generate support for war crimes still be considered great?”

“What this film does,” Greenwald says, “is [it] uncritically presents as fact the highly self-serving, and factually false, claims by the CIA that its torture techniques were crucial in finding [Ethnic Yemeni Kindite, member of the wealthy Saudi bin Laden family, al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad] bin Laden.

“[It] propagandizes the public to favorably view clear war crimes by the U.S. government, based on pure falsehoods.”

 spliced in the ending of Gordon Duff’s article. This is the heart of Duff’s development pegged to the current pageantry in Tel Aviv and less-headlined neglect at home. U.S. President Barack Obama’s message to Israel, Duff says, “will never be reflected in a press release.” Certain utterances will never reach screaming network news. Duff says ─  
U.S. workers

It isn’t just that America can no longer function as the largest unpaid mercenary force in the world; America is broke.

America’s ‘free money’ printing presses are at the ‘end of the line,’ policing the world is no longer an option when America itself is coming apart ‘at the seams.’

It is Obama’s job to explain to [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu that America is going to have to cut back on its deliveries of free white phosphorous and cluster bombs; this may require cutting back Israel’s bombing of Gaza.

“$25 billion in American money buys a life in Israel that those who pay for it will never be able to enjoy,” says Vietnam Veteran Duff, “unless they happen to be of the right religion and ‘theoretical ethnicity.’

Between 25,000 and 50,000 veterans of the ‘War on Terror’ have killed themselves, quite honestly to the relief of American ‘conservatives’ who looked on them as unpleasant reminders of Bush-era failed policies.

America’s GOP ─ the Israeli dominated political party of Mitt Romney, John McCain and Lindsey Graham ─ has long played the American people for fools, attacking ‘entitlements’ … , Social Security retirement, Medicare/Obamacare [Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, the Affordable Care Act)], veterans benefits and military pay as money ‘stolen’ from America’s ‘tax cheating’ one percent-ers.

[Yet] … one rule has been inviolable: no matter how many veterans die of exposure and starvation, no matter how many children of the poor go to sleep hungry or … are forced to eat rats to stay alive, the endless overt and covert aid to Israel ─ up to $25 billion dollars per year ─ is supposed to continue.

Affordable Care Act

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) (commonly called Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act) is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. Together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, it represents the most significant government expansion and regulatory overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obamacare

Zero Dark Thirty
In a December 10, 2012, article in The Guardian UK, Glenn Greenwald addressed the “Zero Dark Thirty” issue. “Can a movie that relies on fabrications to generate support for war crimes still be considered great?” he asked and answered.  

“…That this film would depict CIA interrogation programs as crucial in capturing America’s most hated public enemy, and uncritically herald CIA officials as dramatic heroes, is anything but surprising.

A large Hollywood studio would never dare make a film about the episode which is America’s greatest source of collective self-esteem and jingoistic pride without clinging tightly to patriotic orthodoxies.

The events that led to bullets being pumped into Osama bin Laden’s skull and his corpse being dumped into the ocean have taken on sacred status in American lore, and Big Hollywood will inevitably validate rather than challenge that mythology.

“…The claim that waterboarding and other torture techniques were necessary in finding bin Laden was first made earlier this year (2012) by Jose Rodriguez, the CIA agent who illegally destroyed the agency’s torture tapes, got protected from prosecution by the DOJ [U.S. Department of Justice], and then profited off this behavior by writing a book. He made the same claim as ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ regarding the role played by torture in finding bin Laden.

That caused two Senators who are steadfast loyalists of the CIA - Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein and Armed Services Committee Chair Carl Levin - to issue statements definitively debunking this assertion. Even the CIA’s then-Director, Leon Panetta, made clear that those techniques played no role in finding bin Laden. An FBI agent central to the bin Laden hunt said the same.

“What this film does, then, is [it] uncritically presents as fact the highly self-serving, and factually false, claims by the CIA that its torture techniques were crucial in finding bin Laden.

“Put another way, it propagandizes the public to favorably view clear war crimes by the U.S. government, based on pure falsehoods.

“Shouldn’t that rather glaring ‘flaw’ preclude gushing admiration for this film? Is it possible to separate the filmmakers’ political propaganda and dissemination of falsehoods from their technical skills in producing a well-crafted entertainment product?”
