Biden appoints warmongers

first_imgThink-tank war hawks Within 24 hours of Biden’s inauguration, a large convoy of U.S. military supported by helicopter gunships headed into Syria from Iraq, according to the SANA, the Syrian state news agency. The convoy of 40 trucks, loaded with weapons and logistical materials, reinforced illegal bases in the area. Tons of U.S. heavy equipment were observed travelling toward U.S. positions at the Conoco oil and gas field. This aggression continues the direct imperialist theft of Syria’s oil resources and is intended to disrupt Syria’s efforts to rebuild and provide for its war-torn population. (tinyurl.com/y3tor8fq)This convoy movement showed the Biden administration’s rush to affirm its absolute commitment to ruthlessly enforce U.S. imperialist interests, within a “two-party system” unified in serving U.S. capitalism.U.S. wars provided guaranteed profits and lucrative military contracts stretching back through decades to banks and military industries. The trillions for endless war leaves working people in the U.S. holding empty promises, while they struggle and die in the surge of the COVID-19 virus, in the grip of racist police and under the collapsing infrastructure of an economy in crisis. The trillions spent on war for profit could easily alleviate all these crises and give health, housing and hope to the millions of U.S. working and oppressed people.  The Senate confirmation hearings for Biden’s cabinet appointees — which began the week of Jan. 18 — should serve as a sharp warning of the continuation of dangerous U.S. war policies. Jan. 25, 2020, Philadelphia.The corporate media has focused on Biden’s promise to overturn many of former-President Trump’s policies. But Biden pledged throughout his campaign to make “no substantial change” — and his foreign policy appointments show he meant that. Despite the media talk of justice, new policy and diversity, behind the scenes the same old U.S. militarist policies are being reinforced through Biden’s cabinet choices and their direct ties to industry-funded think tanks and military contractors. Biden’s cabinet nominations follow the failed imperialist policies of the Trump, Obama, Bush Jr., Clinton and Bush Sr. administrations of the past three decades. These choices are ominous for working people in the U.S. and for people around the world suffocating under the knee of U.S. imperialism.The appointment and testimony of war hawk Anthony Blinken, nominated to serve as secretary of state, is one of many searing examples of Biden’s militarist stance.Blinken, in his Jan. 19 confirmation testimony, was clear that he supports expanding imperialist war in Syria, saying: “The U.S. is not doing enough.” He is for “unrelenting pressure on North Korea [the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea]” to “cut off all resources.” He is for expanded deployment of missiles to surround and pressure China. He is for new demands and continued sanctions on Iran. He supports continued efforts to overthrow the elected government of Venezuela. (Blinken’s full testimony is available at tinyurl.com/yyr7k58w.)Blinken also testified: “Our commitment to Israel’s security is sacrosanct, and this is something that the president–elect feels very strongly.” He repeatedly praised Trump policy on normalizing relations between apartheid Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan, emphasizing: “There are a number of things from where I sat that the Trump administration did beyond our borders that I would applaud.” Right-wing racist South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham called Blinken an “outstanding choice.”  (Washington Post, Jan. 19) Wars abroad — and wars at home WW PHOTO: Joe PietteFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thiscenter_img Blinken, a former deputy secretary of state under Obama, is well–known for trading on his past government positions to get lucrative consulting jobs with military contractors. Blinken co-founded WestExec Advisors, a secretive consulting firm for military industries like Boeing and for major banks and investment firms such as Bank of America and Blackstone. WestExec has actually been called a shadow “government-in-waiting” for former Obama administration officials tied to U.S. military policy. (politico.com, Nov. 23, 2020)  It boasts on its website that its name “is derived from ‘West Executive Avenue,’ the closed street that runs between the West Wing of the White House and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. It is, quite literally, the road to the Situation Room.”WestExec partners are former government officials, military officers and diplomats. By defining themselves as “strategic consultants,” they can avoid becoming registered lobbyists or foreign agents and can thus (re)enter government service without the one-year wait required of paid lobbyists. The clients who consult with WestExec are kept secret.Recently confirmed Biden cabinet nominee General Lloyd Austin has been affiliated with WestExec Advisors, as well as sitting on the board of the one of the largest U.S. weapons manufacturers, Raytheon. Austin formerly served as commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and special forces in Syria. His appointment required a special waiver since by U.S. law; the secretary of defense must be a civilian.Avril Haines, recently confirmed as Director of National Intelligence, has also been affiliated with WestExec. As the former deputy director of the CIA, Haines headed its drone program and helped create the legal justification for targeted killings as a normalized action within U.S. foreign policy. Along with assassination by drone strikes, she supported U.S. economic sanctions that attack the nutrition and health of civilian populations of entire countries. According to Politico News, WestExec is loaded with other former top Democratic national security and foreign policy officials who raised money for the Biden campaign, have joined his transition team or have served as unofficial advisers. Many other consultants are expected to receive Biden appointments.  (tinyurl.com/y2hydkdm) Military-industrial insiders There are a variety of other think-tank and strategic consulting firms that provide extremely well-funded positions for government officials — both Republicans and Democrats — between government appointments. The role of these think tanks is to develop a well-vetted and experienced staff who are on-call to serve corporate power both inside government and out. A 2020 report from the Center for International Policy found that defense contractors, as well as U.S. government national security and defense agencies, contributed more than $1 billion to 50 of the most influential U.S. think tanks over the last five years. (tinyurl.com/y45jkd52)Other recent think-tank appointees by Biden include Kathleen Hicks as deputy secretary of defense. She served as senior vice president of CSIS (Center for Strategic and International Studies), the most hawkish think tank in Washington. CSIS  is funded by and acts as an “influence center” for giant military industries such as BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. Hicks opposes the drawdown of U.S. troops from South Korea, Afghanistan and Syria.Kurt Campbell — chairman of The Asia Group, a “strategy and capital advisory” think tank — has been appointed to the newly created position of National Security Council Indo-Pacific coordinator. Campbell, as the former deputy assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, was considered the architect of Obama’s “Pivot to Asia.” This was a provocative policy of repositioning missile batteries, troops and aircraft carriers to encircle China and threaten the DPRK. His new role as Biden’s “Asia Czar” is to integrate anti-China strategy and strengthen U.S. alliances in the region. The naming of Victoria Nuland as under secretary of state is especially revealing of Biden’s militarist policy. Nuland has served as the CEO of CNAS (Center for New American Security), another well-funded military think tank. She has also been with the Albright Stonebridge Group, a think tank set up by former-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Nuland served in both the Bush-Cheney administration and the Obama-Biden administration. Under the latter administration, as assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, Nuland bragged that she helped engineer the 2014 fascist coup that overthrew the elected government of Ukraine, using $5 billion in funding from National Endowment for Democracy.All these appointees promoted U.S. wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya;  starvation sanctions on Venezuela, Korea and Iran; and U.S. plans to reinforce NATO against Russia, surround the DPRK and especially threaten China militarily and economically.These appointments contradict those liberal and social democratic forces who argued that Biden could be pushed into progressive policies by left pressure.  last_img read more

Facebook Shannondoc operating but only by appointment NewsBreaking newsBishop’s pleaBy Bernie English – September 4, 2015 541 No vaccines in Limerick yet First Irish death from Coronavirus TAGSBishopBrendan LeahyfeaturedRefugee center_img Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Linkedin Twitter Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April by Bernie English [email protected] Brendan Leahy has said that a major interagency and organisation response is required if Ireland is to have a meaningful impact in aiding the biggest refugee crisis since the second world war.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And he said he would be willing for the diocese of Limerick to play its part in a government-led initiative to pool resources and find the best and quickest way forward for a collective response to the crisis.He added that he is also “far from convinced” that the accommodation centers where alsylum-seekers are held are the best that can be done for people who come here.In a statement issued this week, Bishop Leahy said that the State, NGOs, the Church and many other organisations need to work together to find a solution to the ongoing emergency.  But a wider strategic review also needs to take place in relation to Ireland’s handling of asylum seekers generally, with facilities and conditions for refugees falling way below acceptable standards.“Last month alone, according to reports, a record 107,500 migrants crossed the European borders. The word ‘migrant’ could as easily be replaced ‘refugee’ as over 60 per cent have come from Syria, Eritrea and Afghanistan, nations in the grip of war and religious persecution.  In all reality we are probably looking at over 70 per cent of people crossing into Europe eligible for asylum.“Regardless, these people are seeking refuge for one reason or another; they are people in tremendous need and would not have set out on the hazardous journey unless there was an element of desperation about their situation.The Bishop said that he finds himself asking “what is my response or our response as a Diocese? I can’t but think of the heroic women and men of past generations in religious orders who set up projects to feed, teach and care for the poorest of the poor in our society. They responded to Jesus’ cry for help in their times.“The time is on us now again to have such courage as we all have a role to play, locally and nationally in response to what is truly a tragic and shocking crisis.” Proceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHLlast_img read more

For some couples this is having devastating effects.“Pregnancy loss can be a very lonely grief. Unfortunately, the companionship of the cup of tea and the chat that usually follows the ceremony will be missing this year. We would encourage people to join with us in the company of a family member for the online ceremony.”“In this year of COVID-19, our Ceremony of Remembrance remains an important date in our calendar, perhaps more so than ever, and we are profoundly grateful to Fr Des and the Church of the Holy Rosary for enabling us to stream the event online, and hosting the recording of the service afterwards on their parish website,” Rita added.To maximise the involvement of families at this time of social distancing, Rita encouraged women and their partners and families to email her with the names of their babies to be included in the service. Please email your baby’s name to Rita on [email protected] before 4pm on Friday November 20th, 2020.

The order has come in a plea moved by Member of Parliament from Trinamool Congress, Mahua Moitra, seeking the quashing of a summoning order passed by the trial court in a defamation case filed against her by Zee Media. While observing that a criminal reference concerning this matter is pending before a Division Bench of this court, the Single Bench of Justice Vibhu Bakhru noted that it’s unlikely that the trial court will commence the recording of evidence before the said reference is taken up the High Court. Filed by Mahua Moitra, the present petition seeks quashing of the summoning order dated 25/09/19 passed by an Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate in a criminal defamation case filed against her by Zee Media. Ms Moitra has also challenged the order dated 10/01/20 whereby the ACMM had framed notice against her by noting that a Magistrate does not have power to discharge an accused in a summons triable case. In addition to this, the petition has also asked the court to exercise its powers under Article 227 of the Constitution to issue practice directions to the subordinate courts in relation to exercise of powers under Section 251 of the Criminal Procedure Code to discharge an accused in a summons triable case instituted on a complaint. While claiming that the said order was passed by the Magistrate without even providing proper hearing to the Petitioner, a set of following questions of law has been presented before the court: Whether a Magistrate seized of a complaint case that contains offences that are in the nature of “summons triable cases”, has the power to discharge an Accused under Section 251 of the CrPC; Whether a Magistrate is to act as a post box upon appearance by a person summoned, and to simpliciter frame notice under Section 251 CrPC, irrespective of the reason placed by such person upon appearance? Whether a Complainant in a defamation case can claim defamation in respect of utterances made while being hounded and abused continuously? Whether the right of self defence exists in a case of defamation? It is argued by the Petitioner that the court did not consider the fact that the statements made by the Petitioner were in the form of a fair retort to the constant haranguing by the reporters of Zee Media. The said controversy pertains to the speech given by Moitra on the floor of the Parliament wherein she had highlighted early signs of fascism. Sudhir Choudhary from Zee Media claimed in his show that Moitra’s parliamentary speech was plagiarised.Next Storylast_img read more

Steeple placed in memory of Doris Adams

first_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Steeple placed in memory of Doris Adams Latest Stories Book Nook to reopen Email the author By Jaine Treadwell “But the donations were enough,” she said. “People wanted to do something for Doris.”The new steeple will be dedicated, and a memorial plaque will be placed in the church at a later date.The Rev. Wes Hatcher, church pastor, said hope was that, when the steeple was replaced, that the old church bell would be found in the bell tower.“I can remember ‘riding’ on the rope to ring the bell when I was a boy,” he said. “Years ago, the bell was not secure and could have fallen, so it was taken down. We were hoping that it had been left up in the bell tower, but it wasn’t.” Several members of Northside Baptist Church stood and watched Friday morning as a new steeple was put in place on the church building.The 14-foot fiberglass steeple replaced the three-foot tin steeple that has been a part of the church since around 1947.“We were so proud to get the new steeple,” said Agnes Johnson, church member. “We had wanted and needed a new steeple for a long time. But it was also sad to see it go up because it was placed in memory of a dear, sweet lady.”center_img The new steeple is a beautiful addition to the church, and it almost dwarfs the three-foot steeple that it replaced.“We are proud to have the new steeple and appreciate those who made it possible,” Hatcher said.
