Apartheid Approval

The U.S. Senate vote to suppress campus criticism of Israel passed unanimously on December 1. Responding to pro-Zionist organizations like AIPAC and ADL, the Senate attack on free speech seeks to use the Department of Education and Department of Justice to punish proponents of equal civil rights for Palestinians in Israel, and those advocating for a human rights boycott against the Israeli Apartheid State.

A Clear Agenda

As Cory Morningstar and Forrest Palmer report, the corporations that fund the non-profit industrial complex through tax-exempt foundations have a clear agenda, even though that agenda is obscured by the much-hyped show business of the so-called ‘activists’ on their payroll. For corporations like Unilever–owner of Ben & Jerry’s, as well as the “Fair and Lovely” line of products for people of color to whiten their skin–funding foundations run by sellout NGO elites in service to Wall Street is just part of doing business.

When these co-opted NGOs, i.e. Greenpeace USA and Earth Economics, partner with Wall Street fronts such as 350, Avaaz and Ceres, they function as well-heeled pied pipers that distract concerned people from more serious and effective political engagement. To call this aspect of the thoroughly-corrupted, non-profit industry serious fraud is an understatement. When this complex exploits indigenous peoples fighting for their lives against Wall Street, it becomes an exercise in Orwellian doublespeak.

As a result, caring but naive followers of these pied pipers are led into “consumer activism” and other infantile civic roles, where they are easily manipulated by public relations firms such as Agit-Pop Communications (formerly Ruckus Productions). These PR firms, in turn, promote fascist enterprises such as The New Economy.

Week in Review-3

The Presidential Inaugural Committee advertised two tickets to an “intimate policy discussion” with Cabinet members for between $100,000 and $249,000, and, for more than a million dollars, eight tickets to a “candlelight” dinner with an appearance by the president-elect.--Harper's

Fracking Bakken

The moral theatre at Standing Rock has been inspirational, but it all could have been avoided had Obama not approved fracking millions of acres of Bakken Shale in North Dakota. The pipelines and bomb trains emanating from that disastrous decision will haunt us for generations.
