The Unwelcome Return of the Real Purveyors of Violence

With the mainstream media still obsessing about the January 6th “violent coup attempt” at the US Capitol Building, the incoming Biden Administration looks to be chock full of actual purveyors of violent coups. Don’t look to the mainstream media to report on this, however. Some of the same politicians and bureaucrats denouncing the ridiculous farce at the Capitol as if it were the equivalent of 9/11 have been involved for decades in planning and executing real coups overseas. In their real coups, many thousands of civilians have died.

Take returning Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, for example. More than anyone else she is the face of the US-led violent coup against a democratically-elected government in Ukraine in 2014. Nuland not only passed out snacks to the coup leaders, she was caught on a phone call actually plotting the coup right down to who would take power once the smoke cleared.

Unlike the fake Capitol “coup,” this was a real overthrow. Unlike the buffalo horn-wearing joke who desecrated the “sacred” Senate chamber, the Ukraine coup had real armed insurrectionists with a real plan to overthrow the government. Eventually, with the help of incoming Assistant Secretary of State Nuland, they succeeded – after thousands of civilians were killed.

As we were unfortunately reminded during the last four years of the Trump Administration, the personnel is the policy. So while President Trump railed against the “stupid wars” and promised to bring the troops home, he hired people like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo to get the job done. They spent their time “clarifying” Trump’s call for ending wars to mean he wanted to actually continue the wars. It was a colossal failure.

So it’s hard to be optimistic about a Biden Administration with so many hyper-interventionist Obama retreads.

While the US Agency for International Development (USAID) likes to sell itself as the compassionate arm of the US foreign policy, in fact USAID is one of the main US “regime change” agencies. Biden has announced that a top “humanitarian interventionist” – Samantha Power – would head that Agency in his Administration.

Power, who served on President Obama’s National Security Council staff and as US Ambassador to the UN, argued passionately and successfully that a US attack on the Gaddafi government in Libya would result in a liberation of the people and the outbreak of democracy in the country. In reality, her justification was all based on lies and the US assault has left nothing but murder and mayhem. Gaddafi’s relatively peaceful, if authoritarian, government has been replaced by radical terrorists and even slave markets.

At the end of the day, the Bush Republicans – like Rep. Liz Cheney – will join hands with the Biden Democrats to reinstate “American leadership.” This of course means more US overt and covert wars overseas. The unholy alliance between Big Tech and the US government will happily assist the US State Department under Secretary of State Tony Blinken and Assistant Secretary of State Nuland with the technology to foment more “regime change” operations wherever the Biden Administration sees fit. Finish destroying Syria and the secular Assad? Sure! Go back into Iraq? Why not? Afghanistan? That’s the good war! And Russia and China must be punished as well.

These are grave moments for we non-interventionists. But also we have a unique opportunity, informed by history, to denounce the warmongers and push for a peaceful and non-interventionist foreign policy.

  1. If Americans believe for one moment that a small handful of “Trump supporters” could overthrow the government by storming the Capitol Building and maybe even taking hostages, they are CHILDISH in their perceptions! Of course, the so-called “storming” was an OBVIOUS false flag event, with Antifa and BLM, not to mention the media, at the head of the charge. With the damage inside done and the building breached, DC cops all but invited Trump supporters inside to take the blame for ALL of it! The thought that agitators could easily have disguised themselves as “Trump supporters” was not even considered by the lockstep lying media. Assuming Trump supporters DID do all the media said they did, however, would certainly fall far short of ever “overthrowing ” the government. Military and law enforcement would have quickly put down the “insurrection” and to think that they would consider Trump THAT stupid, aware of this reality, shows just how stupid and disdainful they consider the American public! Maybe in a Steven Siegel movie, but certainly not in reality. Anyone who thinks this was a possible “overthrow” is very childish in their knowledge AND perceptions of how things work in this nation! And the media plays on this stupidity constantly.

    • I would suggest that everyone, patriot or traitor, normal person or one in the media or government, read Hank’s post. Then read it again. Then once again. Evaluate the actual events at the Capitol on January 6, not from the standpoint of what you’re being told by the lying press, but (if you can find them) from the viewpoint of those who actually attended. This was a peaceful outpouring of anger by those who cherish and value this country and the Constitutional form of government that has served it fairly well for over two hundred years–and which is being taken away from us in the same manner that Russia turned into the USSR just over a hundred years ago.

      And unfortunately, there is an entire generation of adults now who never lived before 2001 took our freedoms away from us, and who have been brainwashed in the socialist/fascist/communist mindset, who are willing to give up all freedoms–ALL freedoms!–in order to not have to go to that job every day, that job that has been taken away from them anyway by lies and corruption from the very top.

      I’m looking for a meme to commemorate the late, somewhat great, United States of America. Born, July 4, 1776, received a fatal blow December 1913, placed on a ventilator January 6, 2021, and murdered January 20, 2021. R.I.P.
