"A time has come, WHEN SILENCE is BETRAYAL."
Unfortunately for us all, that time, in America today... is NOW.
Martin Luther King speech - Continued support for the Vietnam War is a crime against humanity.... http://youtu.be/Q5VhCvrEcPY
Earlier we wrote of so-called "liberal Democrat" President Barack Obama, regarding his ruthless & murderous prison & prosecutions JIHAD against courageous Iraq War Whistleblower Private Bradley Manning
(in prison in torturous ISOLATION to this day, for releasing the U.S. Army's own video of their helicopter gunships killing over a dozen unarmed Iraqis in Baghdad in 2007)
or for making wikileaks founder Julian Assange a virtual PRISONER in the Ecuador embassy in London, or for the many other MURDERS BY cowardly U.S. DRONE ATTACKS signed off by Mr. Obama in his metastasizing evil jewish wars across the world:
"the increasingly foul and dictatorial Mr. Barack Obama has DOUBLED DOWN on his DICTATORIAL REPRESSION and INTIMIDATION of the American people,
'intimidation' of the same sort as
the APPLIED TERRORISM of the SLAVERY and SEGREGATION ERAS..."
Fortunately, we are not the only ones to see through Mr. Obama's wretched "pretend liberal'' but actually radical right-wing warmongering, treasury looting, worker crushing, police-state dictatorship enabling agenda, as Mr. Tony Cartalucci observes in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day, today:
The Greatest Way to Dishonor Martin Luther King Jr.
[is to Compare his life standing up for the downtrodden, the debt-ridden, the enslaved, the bombed and the terrorized; with CORPORATE FASCIST ENABLER and appartchik, president Barack Obama.]
by Tony Cartalucci, Prison Planet.com Jan 21, 2013
What’s the greatest way to dishonor Martin Luther King Jr.?
Compare him with US President Barack Obama – a servant of an engine for the greatest disparity, inequality, and injustice on Earth – driven by the very corporate-financier interests King stood up against, was opposed by throughout his entire life, and most likely was killed by.
For Martin Luther King Jr. – whose famous speeches still echo through the halls of time, who spoke a message of peace and of the importance of character over the mere color of one’s skin – he is ironically compared to Barack Obama simply because of the color of their skin, despite the fact that these two men possess the opposite in character, and represent infinitely opposing causes.
below illustrations: Obama's ruthless "OF, BY, AND FOR giant CORPORATIONS" staffers, aides, and cabinet officials, starting (left) with Eric Holder - who is criminally WHITEWASHING financial CRIMES ON WALL ST., by the gross, as we speak...
Image: A visual representation of the corporate-financier special interests represented by US President Barack Obama’s cabinet, past and present.
….Indeed, despite the left-leaning facade President Obama displays publicly, his entire cabinet, past and present, is a collection of corporate-financier special interests, warmongers, criminals, and elitists who merely couch a corporate-fascist, self-serving agenda behind well-meaning liberal-esque causes. A look at these characters more closely reveals just this:
Timothy Geithner (Secretary of the Treasury): Group of 30, Council on Foreign Relations, private Federal ReserveImage: Brookings Institution’s corporate backers – clearly nothing to do with left-leaning liberals
Eric Holder (Attorney General): Covington & Burling lobbying for Merck and representing Chiquita International Brands in lawsuits brought by relatives of people killed by Colombian terrorists.
Eric Shinseki (Secretary of Veteran Affairs): US Army, Council on Foreign Relations, Honeywelldirector (military contractor), Ducommun director (military contractor).
Rahm Emanuel (former Chief of Staff): Freddie Mac
William Daley (former Chief of Staff): JP Morgan executive committee member
Jacob “Jack” Lew (Chief of Staff) Council on Foreign Relations, Brookings Institution (Hamilton Project)
Susan Rice (UN Ambassador): McKinsey and Company, Brookings Institution, Council on Foreign Relations
Peter Orszag, (former Budget Director): Citi Group, Council on Foreign Relations
Paul Volcker: Council on Foreign Relations, private Federal Reserve, Group of 30
Ronald Kirk (US Trade Representative): lobbyist, part of Goldman Sachs, Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts, and Texas Pacific Group partnership to buyout Energy Future Holdings.
Lawrence Summers (National Economic Council Director): World Bank, Council on Foreign Relations, Brookings Institution (Hamilton Project)
Of course, representation of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Brookings Institution (page 19, .pdf) should give any genuine left-leaning liberal pause for thought.
These are think-tanks created by and for big business
[and DOMINATED by the evil JEWISH WAR LOBBY & Goddamn-Sachs, Fed, Citi, et al Financial Rapists]
The Brookings Institution in particular is home of the very architects of “George Bush’s” myriad of wars – wars the faux-left in America claim Obama only grudgingly has... stuck with.
In reality, his policy is driven by not only the exact same corporate-financier interests that drove Bush’s, but in fact, many of the exact same individuals are writing the policy versus nations like Libya, Syria, and Iran today who were behind “Bush’s” Iraq and Afghanistan wars – the consequences of which still are reverberating. This is what is called, “continuity of agenda,” with the feigned political proclivities of both Bush and Obama being nothing more than carefully orchestrated theater to divide and distract the public as a singular agenda transcends presidencies and perceived political lines.
[That would be the NEO-CON agenda, as we have documented 1,000 times here at TJW. ]
And in reality, Martin Luther King Jr., should he still walk this world today, would undoubtedly be taking the podium and speaking out against this outrageous conspiracy against free humanity, and the affront to equality poseurs like President Barack Obama are attempting to foist upon the public and the world at large. He would undoubtedly condemn the global war Obama is waging from Mali to Libya, from Syria to Afghanistan and the borders of Pakistan, from Yemen to Somalia, to Uganda and beyond.
In a speech given on April 4, 1967 in New York City titled,
“Beyond Vietnam – A Time to Break Silence,”
King gives what is perhaps the widest encapsulation of his philosophy and worldview, one that would undoubtedly criticize and clash with the disingenuous US presidents of today, celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day. And the beauty of the equality King helped usher in is, the fact that Obama is black should not shield him from the criticism of the very man that helped pave the way for his accession to office.
One section of King’s enlightening speech criticizing the Vietnam War states:
“It is with such activity in mind that the words of the late John F. Kennedy come back to haunt us. Five years ago he said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” Increasingly, by choice or by accident, this is the role our nation has taken, the role of those who make peaceful revolution impossible by refusing to give up the privileges and the pleasures that come from the immense profits of overseas investments. I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin…we must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.It is safe to say that America has not mended its ways and only traveled further down the dark path King warned us of back in 1967. The man “leading” us, or at least the front-man for the corporate-financier interests that drive America’s destiny, may honor King with carefully contrived words and well orchestrated public stunts, but in deeds and actions Obama and the corporate-financier elite that hold his leash, defame and dishonor King in every way imaginable.
A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. On the one hand, we are called to play the Good Samaritan on life’s roadside, but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho Road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life’s highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say, “This is not just.” It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of South America and say, “This is not just.” The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.... (cont'd)
If you want to honor King and his life’s work, honor it by implementing the words he uttered while alive, not by playing along with a system that resisted him until his death, and has since dishonored and exploited his memory with disingenuous praise while maliciously carrying out an agenda contra to everything King ever stood for.

Not only is President Barack Obama using the force & power of the entire United States government to pretend that KILLING CIVILIANS in Iraq in this below wikileaks video IS NOT A CRIME...
...but he has EXPANDED the use of United States government (military) "MURDER FROM THE AIR" and indeed, his evil judeo dominated presidency is working relentlessly to INSTITUTIONALIZE "DRONE" murder-attacks, reprisals bombings, and assassinations from the air as "THE NEW NORMAL" that Amerikans should passively accept as "normal."
The above is ALL THE MORE RANK, when the TREASONOUS Mr. Obama, and his cabinet, and his government officials, AND the "opposition Party" (Republicans) in Con-gress, Senate, and across America, have been HIRING AND FUNDING AL QAEDA TERRORISTS to wage PROXY WARS, U.S. sponsored mass-murderous INVASIONS, domestic sabotage, and TERRORIST JIHADS against Libya, Syria, and indeed against any country, and everywhere the treasonous, treacherous, murderous Neo-Cons NEED AN EXCUSE to UNLEASH THE KILLER DRONES which they have gone "Dr. Strangelove" insanely, blood-lustingly, mad over.
MARTIN LUTHER KING OPPOSED the bombings of VIETNAMESE villages** by United States government military aircraft... but today, the ruthless Neo-Con handlers behind Mr. Obama, the ruthless Neo-Con handlers who own the sordid Meyer/Graham Washington Post, who own the Sulzberger New York Slimes, and who own the CNN/Time/Wonsakaler Bros. (ne "Warner bros.") warmongering media propaganda empire, are attempting to spin Obama's presidency as modern, progressive, democratic, and humanitarian... despite the rain of TERROR & SUMMARY MASS MURDER FROM THE AIR Mr. Obama and his puppet-masters and the U.S. military are dispensing, daily.
** note: The South Vietnam regime was created out of whole-cloth by U.S. authorities attempting to put despised CATHOLIC DICTATORS on top of a 90% Buddhist country, where the Catholics were hated for being ALLIED WITH JAPAN's IMPERIAL ARMY in WWII under the Vichy French - that's correct, America's ruling elite sided with those French & Catholics in Vietnam who had FOUGHT American & Allied forces in WWII, in particular, handing captured U.S. & British airmen over to the Japanese for torture and execution!
note too wikipedia's horrendous, warmongering, "murder is tolerable" article on the release to the world of the above video of American, United States Army helicopters killing over a dozen unarmed Iraqi civilians, including those who attempted to rescue their friends who had been machine-gunned by those U.S. helicopters in the first murderous pass....
In typical Sulzberger New York Slimes / Meyer/Graham Cowardly, lying, jewish traitorous Washington Post fashion, American 'mainstream" corporate media fashion, the editors and writers at Wikipedia try to SMOTHER THE BASIC FACTS of the story - US HELICPOTERS GUNNING DOWN IRAQI CIVILIANS - by burying the reader in details, most notably technical details about the U.S. military industrialized, mechanized killing machines (i.e. helicopter gunships, missiles, cannons, etc.) and the detail that one of the men may have had an AK-47 rifle - which is standard "sentry/guard" equipment for just about anyone in any war-torn land...
THIS wikipedia story is STRAIGHT OUT of NAZI WWII propaganda:
"WE FOUND A GUN in one of the villager's homes... SO THEY WERE ALL SHOT as terrorists and partisans" !!
