13-07-15 US: Where left-right-and-center converge - illegitimacy of the Bush II / Obama regime

This is from the left, but tell me if you could distinguish it from extreme right writing... jz
Coup d’etat

By Paul Craig Roberts
July 14, 2013 "Information Clearing House -The American people have suffered a coup d’etat, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the US Constitution is a mere “scrap of paper.”

An unconstitutional government is an illegitimate government. The oath of allegiance requires defense of the Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” As the Founding Fathers made clear, the main enemy of the Constitution is the government itself. Power does not like to be bound and tied down and constantly works to free itself from constraints.

The basis of the regime in Washington is nothing but usurped power. The Obama Regime, like the Bush/Cheney Regime, has no legitimacy. Americans are oppressed by an illegitimate government ruling, not by law and the Constitution, but by lies and naked force. Those in government see the US Constitution as a “chain that binds our hands.”
The only constitutional protection that the Bush/Obama regime has left standing is the Second Amendment, a meaningless amendment considering the disparity in arms between Washington and what is permitted to the citizenry. No citizen standing with a rifle can protect himself and his family from one of the Department of Homeland Security’s 2,700 tanks, or from a drone, or from a heavily armed SWAT force in body armor.
Like serfs in the dark ages, American citizens...


13-07-15 Tel Aviv: Memorial for self-immolated social protest activist Moshe Silman

The memorial was erected without permit during last Saturday night's Occupy demonstration on the site, where the incident took place a year ago.
The plaque calls for social justice in Israel.
It is unlikely the city hall will have the guts to have the modest memorial removed.
In the meanwhile, candle-lighting vigils are going on.The writing in ash on the sidewalk says: "This is NOT a personal tragedy", in deference to Prime Minister Neyanyahu, who tried to dismiss the case as "a personal tragedy".

13-07-15 China, US, Israel - Bank of China case - beginning of the end of US hegemony in Israel and beyond?

Bank of China is claimed to have been involved in money laundering for terror group Hamas. But Israel will NOT cooperate with the US in actions against the bank, for fear of hurting its budding strategic relationship with China...   The US, under the guise of fighting terror, claims jurisdiction over all banking operations world-wide.  But this recent case demonstrates China being able to foil the scheme, and through no lesser party than Israel - US key ally, and direct victim of terror activities.  Yet, this escalating critical story is hardly covered by media.
Former Israeli National Security Advisor Jacob Amidror, Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Oren, are facing subpoena in the US in a case against Bank of China!

Today's paper edition of YNET claims that Israel Ambassador to the US Michael Oren was summoned back to Jerusalem over a boiling crisis in US-Israeli relations, over Israeli non-cooperation, under Chinese pressure, with US actions against Bank of China over money laundering for Hamas.
YNET reports that Ambassdor Oren, as well as former Israeli National Security Advisor Jacob Amidror are facing the prospect of subpoena by a US court over the matter.
Israel fights to have EU and other nations treat Hamas, Hizbollah, and others as terror groups.  
The US on its part, through a series of laws, is claiming jurisdiction over of all banks world-wide, under the perennial claim of fighting terror.
Under such matching interests, Israel was cooperating with the US in providing evidence against Bank of China, pertaining to its involvement in money laundering for Hamas.
However, according to Israeli paper media (but not online), the Chinese government threatened to cancel Prime Minister Netanyahu's recent visit to China, if Israel continued in cooperating with the US in this matter. Media report that Bibi folded under the pressure, preferring the budding strategic relationship with China over joining the US efforts against Bank of China.
The story has been brewing for at least a couple of months, and more recently has been escalating.  Yet, it is hardly covered by media.  The paucity of reporting on this story only emphasizes its overarching significance relative to Israel-US-China relationships, US efforts to control world banking operations under the guise of fighting terror, and China's quiet ascendance to dominant world power.

The report below is lame and outdated, but the only one I could find online.  jz
