Obama's Demagoguery on Counteering Viiolent Extremism

Obama's Demagoguery on Countering Violent Extremism

by Stephen Lendman

Obama proliferates Big Lies. He's incapable of truth-telling. On February 18, he delivered closing remarks at the just concluded White House summit on countering violent extremism.

Last month, Obama's press secretary Josh Earnest called it a summit "to highlight domestic and international efforts to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting, or inspiring individuals or groups in the United States and abroad to commit acts of violence, efforts made even more imperative in light of recent, tragic attacks in Ottawa, Sydney, and Paris."

"This summit will build on the strategy the White House released in August of 2011, Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States, the first national strategy to prevent violent extremism domestically."

In September, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson first announced it. He cited a nonexistent Islamic State threat.

Saying an October summit would be held. It was delayed until mid-February. Why wasn't explained.

Obama stressed nonexistent "genuine challenges to our security today." America's only threats and enemies are ones it invents.

Obama lied claiming otherwise. Ludicrously saying America faces a "terrorist threat from groups like Al Qaeda and ISIL."

"It's a challenge for the world. ISIL is terrorizing the people of Syria and Iriaq…We've seen deadly attacks in Ottawa and Sydney and Paris and now Copenhagen."

"…(I)n the face of this challenge, we have marshalled the full force of the United States government, and we’re working with allies and partners to dismantle terrorist organizations and protect the American people."

Fact: Al Qaeda, the Islamic State and likeminded groups are US proxy forces.

Fact: Washington recruits, arms, funds, trains and directs them.

Fact: They're used as US death squads against designated American adversaries.

Fact: Most recently against Libya's Gaddafi and Syria's Assad - with disastrous results showing no signs of ending.

Fact: At times, these and likeminded groups are used as both allies and enemies. America uses them strategically.

Fact: They pose no homeland threat. Claims otherwise are Big Lies.

The so-called "scourge of violent extremism" Obama cited is headquartered in Washington. He highlighted nonexistent challenges.

The only way to stop proliferating violence is by replacing responsible rogue US governance. Allied with Israel and rogue NATO members, it threatens humanity's survival.

Obama absurdly declared America isn't "at war with Islam." He said the same thing weeks into his first term.

He promised hope and change. Peace, not wars. Closing Guantanamo by yearend 2009.

Ending torture, illegal surveillance, detention without trial and a "new era of openness."

He expressed willingness to engage Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea and other countries diplomatically.

He broke every major promise made. He's waged direct and proxy wars throughout his tenure.

He asked Congress for unlimited war-making authority. He has lots more targets in mind.

Perhaps US boots on the ground in Ukraine. Possible direct confrontation with Russia looms.

His attempt to oust Venezuela's model democratic government complicit with Britain and Canada failed.

His economic and political war on Bolivarian fairness continues. It's one of his many wars on sovereign independent states.

He wants all of them transformed into US colonies. He's waged war on Islam from day one in office at home and abroad.

Wars against Islamic nations continue. New ones are planned. Innocent Muslims languish in America's global gulag. They're political prisoners denied all rights.

Torture remains official US policy. Obama governs under a homeland police state apparatus.

Fundamental freedoms are disappearing in plain sight. Obama calls his rogue agenda "American leadership."

Its phony war on terror is a US war OF terror against humanity.

Obama and likeminded lunatics infesting Washington reject fundamental democratic rights.

Wars without end persist. State terror is official US policy. Obama makes painful listening.

A litany of Big Lies dot his rhetoric. His actions belie his words. He heads a bipartisan gangster regime addicted to war.

Fundamentally opposed to peace, equity, human dignity and justice. Ravenously pursuing imperial madness.

Obama's legacy is a blank check for endless wars of aggression. Continued mass slaughter and destruction.

Propaganda claiming war is peace. Homeland repression against nonbelievers.  

A slippery slope risking global war. Washington’s plan to own planet earth may end up destroying it.

Never before in human history have things looked this grim. Peace and stability depend on stopping this monster before it destroys us. There's no in between.
