Corporate Bankster Pirates=Fascism

I highly recommend watching this German TV channel ZDF video.  They speak the truth about US-NATO endless wars for oil.  In the hot seat is pitiful US Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, the Commanding General, of United States Army Europe.  He hails from Quincy, Florida which speaks for itself.  

In my view the US is totally exposed for its greedy-sick-hypocrisy and the audience applause helps reveal that the people, all over the world, see the truth that the US is a 'global force for evil' and corporate interests.  The only people falling for the Pentagon's propaganda any more are the majority of the American people.

The participants are: Aktham Suleiman, a Syrian journalist; Ursula von der Leyen, the Secretary of Defense of Germany; Jean Asselborn, the Foreign Minister of Luxembourg; Oskar Lafontaine, a member of the Left Party in Germany.

The fact that Hodges has to sit on camera at the same table as the Left Party representative indicates how far the US power of persuasion has fallen in Europe.  The US is trying to break Europe away from Russia and is using 'terrorism' as an excuse to force fascist-led regime change in nations that don't wish to be colonized by the US corporate mafia.  The empire is indeed collapsing and is kicking the shit out of anyone that gets in its way.

I lived in Florida for 30 years.  That state is a perfect example of a corporate colony in the US.  The public education system has always been weak in order to keep the populations there ignorant and subservient to corporate interests.  Historically, beginning during the slave trade, Florida oligarchs have been instrumental in US foreign policy development in the Caribbean and throughout Latin America.  They have been leaders in US fascist operations toppling governments throughout Central and South America.  Washington's early Cuba policy was centered around drugs, gambling, prostitution, sugar, and the enormous profits that flowed to the mobsters based in Miami.

Over the years when right-wing governments were challenged in Latin America those oligarchs would run to Miami looking for shelter from their storm.  The politics of Florida reeks with the smell of this sordid history.

After having lived in Florida for 30 years, been in the military, led groups to Cuba, and been part of movements trying to challenge these entrenched right-wing forces in that state I can easily attest to it being a fascist corporate colony.  I will always remember watching the sons of the elite arguing against progressive issues at the University of Florida Student Government Senate.  It was their training ground before running state and corporate operations.

There won't be peace in the world until the American people stand up to their own dictators who push oil wars (sold as 'war on terrorism') and destroy our own nation's publicly funded infrastructure. They are nothing more than corporate bankster pirates.

Take a close look at Ben Hodge in the video.  He's out of his league - he is a corporate knuckle-breaker who has been given a nice suit with lots of splash on it.  The rest of the world sees it - Americans should be embarrassed and at shame that we have swallowed the dark pill in order to feel like 'we are the exceptional people'.
