Marines guilty of endemic violence! Ghosts of my father & grandfather!

11 NOV 2017 (04:39 UTC-07 Tango 06) 20 Aban 1396/21 Safar 1439/23 Xin-Hai 4715

Couple of U.S. Marines found guilty of crimes; a Drill Instructor, and a General!

On 10 NOV 2017, a military jury found a Iraq occupation vet, and Drill Instructor (DI), guilty of punching, kicking and choking U.S. Muslim recruits in his charge, one of those U.S. Muslims killed  himself.  The DI was reduced down in rank to private, lost his pay and will spend ten years in a military prison: “Felix was accused in more than three dozen criminal counts of being a central figure in an abusive group of drill instructors at Parris Island that came to light after the March 2016 suicide of one of the three Muslim-American recruits Felix targeted.”-Associated Press

Does anybody remember the U.S. Marines Afghanistan pissing contest, back in 2011?

Now-retired USMC General James Amos found guilty of ‘Unlawful Command Influence’ (UCI) regarding the incident, and as a result the conviction of a Marine sniper involved in the Afghan urinating case has been thrown out.  The court ruled that General Amos used his authority to illegally influence events surrounding the case, and to focus the investigation unfairly on one particular sniper.  Investigations into the UCI by General Amos also included his chief legal adviser, and a Major who resigned from the USMC.

The UCI case against James Amos is considered unprecedented in USMC history.  But USMC violence is not unprecedented, its endemic.

My paternal grandfather is a prime example of a hardcore Marine whose only response to difficult situations, real or imagined, is to fight your way through.

O.G. Hutchins  spent 30+ years in the USMC, serving in World War Two, Korea and Vietnam.  He also served as a DI and recruiter.  He was so hardcore that after his forced retirement he furnished his bedroom in his Jackson, Mississippi, home with wall and foot lockers, a hammock for the bed, and a huge Marine Corps flag covering one wall.

O.G. Hutchins, 30+ years hardcore Marine

O.G. Hutchins, 30+ years hardcore Marine

I remember one night in a drunken rage he broke a bowl made from walnut shells and began crying about it, saying it was made by one of his buddies in Vietnam.  The next morning he accused me of breaking it, and my father had to intervene to stop hm from beating me.

This wasn’t the first time my father stood up to his father.  In the 1950s, while my grandfather was stationed at Yermo, in California, my father tried to protect his mother from being beaten and got beat himself.  My grandmother could take being beaten by my grandfather, but seeing her son get beat was too much for her. She not only got a divorce but got a California arrest warrant issued for my grandfather.  The Marine Corp protected him from arrest by shipping him outside The Golden State (which was typical back then).

But my father is guilty of being an abuser as well, yes he was a Marine.  My father was a USMC BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) gunner for two years, before transferring to the U.S. Air Force in the early 1960s (you could do that then).  Strangely, after the mid-1970s incident where my grandfather wanted to beat me for his breaking of his Vietnam buddies’ bowl, my father started abusing me whenever he got drunk. This lasted until the early 1980s when he tried to do it in front of some of my high-school friends.  He grabbed me by the neck, made a fist with his free hand, and ordered me to call him ‘sir’.  I looked him in the eyes, then looked at my friends, then back at my father and said “No.” and added “Go ahead.”  Realizing there were witnesses he angrily backed off.

For a few years my mother didn’t believe me about my father’s abuse, until one day he did it in front of her.  I believe that’s what finally lead her to divorce him, she began to fear him and claimed during the divorce trial that he threatened to kill her.  She told me afterwards that she stayed in the marriage for as long as she did because she thought he loved his children, until he tried beating me in front of her.  I have a sister and brother, but for some reason I was the only one he was abusing (as far as I know, I don’t communicate with my siblings), what used to be called a Whipping Boy.

It was after my parents’ divorce that paternal grandmother revealed the abuse at the hands of my grandfather.   While my father and grandfather were both Marines there’s a major difference between them; my grandfather was honest about who he was, my father was a coward.  My grandfather openly told people how he felt about them, how he hated ‘blacks’, how he hated Asians more than blacks, how he hated anybody who wasn’t a Marine (when I told him I joined the Army he cursed me, but later on after I got married and joined the Air Force he forgave me because he was happy at the chance of becoming a great grandfather).

My grandfather honestly told me how, during World War Two, they would murder Japanese PoWs (Prisoners of War) and get away with it by claiming the PoWs were trying to escape (its legal to kill PoWs if they’re attempting to escape).  They would unlock the PoW cage at night, and when the first prisoner opened the cage the Marines would open fire, on everybody in the cage.

He also told me how they would kill women and children, and then blame the Japanese.  There are plenty of reports of the U.S. military trying to help civilians on the islands they were capturing, one way was to drop leaflets telling civilians to surrender themselves to the U.S. forces.  My grandfather said many times, at night, civilians would approach their front lines and try to cross the barbed wire only to be shot down in a hail of bullets as everybody in the unit would ‘open up’ with everything they had.   He said in the morning all you’d see were the bodies old people, women and children hanging the wire.  But he was unphased because he was tired of pulling the bodies of his dead buddies from burned out tanks (he was a tank commander).  The reason why the civilians approached at night was because the Japanese army had orders to shoot any civilian that tried to surrender (the Japanese army was terrible at night operations), but the Marine Corps reported that the civilians were being used as human shields by the Japanese army to probe U.S. defenses.

My grandfather had similar stories about Korea and Vietnam.  He was brutally honest.  My father was the opposite, a bold faced liar.  He was still a ‘racist’, hated a lot of religions (he was raised Lutheran), would complain about government corruption yet as a civil servant joyously took part in ripping off taxpayers (he would actually brag to me about the latest gadget he acquired from the Air Force, without the Air Force knowing about it, or put in for every taxpayer funded education convention when he was a member of the Hesperia school board).  My ‘black’ hating father could convince ‘blacks’ in church that he was ‘on their side’.  At home my father would yell about corporate executives and politicians ruining the country, but then in public, when confronting them he suddenly became the biggest ass-kisser I ever saw!  I think one reason my father started abusing me was because even as a child I was calling him out on his dishonesty (especially on government corruption and his civil service ‘crimes’, and his lies to black church members).  My grandfather would never do that, instead he would risk getting arrested for assaulting people for being ‘in violation’ of his personal beliefs, he admitted to me that the reason he became a Marine was to get away from what he saw as a ‘corrupt’ civilian world.

While my father and grandfather were polar opposites regarding living an honest life, they were both Marines and both dealt with stressful situations with violence, because that’s how a Marine is made. Or is it?  Is it possible that the United States Marine Corps attracts people who are already violent?  It should be noted that even before O.G. Hutchins joined the Marines in the late 1930s he had a history of violence, even being shunned by the larger Hutchins clan of Mississippi because of it.  Education could be a factor, my grandfather made it through only junior-high, as a result he could never find decent paying work, even back then.   My father was always a high achiever; an Eagle Scout, high scoring high-school graduate and a ‘letterman’, even getting an Associates Degree from Victor Valley College while working at Edwards AFB in the 1970s.  Yet my poorly educated grandfather was the honest one, my high achieving father was a liar.

A couple of years before my grandfather’s death he had been barred from every VFW (Veterans Foreign Wars) post in the Jackson area, for causing fights (and he was in his late 60s/early 70s). He openly hated anybody who “wasn’t a Marine” or wasn’t ‘white’, at least I can respect him for living his brutal life openly and honestly, especially since the highest academic education level he achieved was junior-high.

Syria, Russia defeat U.S.-NATO created Islamic State? Israel next?

04 NOV 2017 (02:34 UTC-07 Tango 06) 13 Aban 1396/14 Safar 1439/16 Xin-Hai 4715

“…the units of our armed forces, in cooperation with the allied and supporting forces, have accomplished their tasks of restoring security and stability to Deir Ezzor city!”-Syrian Arab Army, 03 NOV 2017

It’s official, Syria, with help from Russia, is on the verge of defeating the U.S.-EU-NATO created Islamic State (DAIISH=DA for al-DAwla, I for al-Islamiya, I for al-Iraq, SH al-SHam)!  Only the DAIISH occupied city of Raqqa is left and the Syrian Arab Army plans on fully overrunning it.

At the same time, Syrian officials sent letters to the United Nations Secretary General, and the Security Council, complaining that Israel continues to bomb civilian economic areas of the Province of Homs: “The Government of the Syrian Arab Republic calls upon the UNSC to condemn the blatant Israeli aggressions and calls on the international organization to adopt firm and immediate measures to stop those attacks and hold Israel accountable for its support of terrorism which would inflame the situation in the region and the world.”

While DAIISH is on the run, Syrian towns are still being attacked by Israeli backed Nusra Front (Jabhat al-Nusra).  Today, nine people were killed, and dozens wounded, by a Nusra Front car bomb in the town of Hadar.

Video of Syrian Arab Army movement of forces around Deir Ezzor:

Video of Syrian Domestic Trade Minister touring Deir Ezzor, 02 NOV 2017:

Also, Russia used aircraft and submarine launched cruise missiles to bomb DAIISH command posts and depots around the town of al-Bokamal-Abu Kamal, southeast of Deir Ezzor, near the border with Iraq.  Russian military leaders in Syria said it was a major step in creating an environment that will allow the Syrian government to fully liberate eastern Syria.

Today, Russia openly accused the United States and NATO of committing war crimes by deliberately preventing humanitarian aid for refugees near al-Tanfnear the Syrian–Iraqi border: “By having organized there its military base and prohibiting anyone from approaching it closer than 55km, the U.S. bears responsibility for the situation, where dozens of Syrian internally displaced persons, staying at the al-Rukban camp nearby, are deprived of a chance to receive humanitarian assistance.”-Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties in Syria

Russia is hosting peace talks in Sochi, called the Syrian National Dialogue Congress: “Moscow hopes that all Syrian parties which care about the future of Syria and its sovereignty and territorial integrity will participate in the Syrian National Dialogue Congress to be held on November 18th in Sochi.”-Mikhail Bogdanov, Russian deputy Foreign Minister

Algeria expressed support for the Syrian government: “Algeria rejected freezing Syria’s membership at the Arab League and it has called for activating bilateral cooperation.”-Saleh Bosha, Algerian ambassador to Syria

Just a day before the victory in Deir Ezzor, Syria and Oman signed an ‘understanding’ with the future goal of expanding, and even fully nationalizing, their oil industries.

Operation Jupiter: CIA fake vaccination programs are covert DNA collection ops!

26 OCT 2017 /23:58 UTC-07 Tango 06  (05 Aban 1396/06 Safar 1439/08 Geng-Xu [9th month] 4715)

For years pro-vaccination mainstream news media have denounced groups of people in war torn countries who claim that foreign-UN-U.S.-NATO-NGO vaccination programs are covert operations to destroy them.  It turns out those people are correct, yet even after the U.S. CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) admitted to operating such fake vaccination programs, the mainstream news media, along with the vaccination pushers like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have yet to apologize to those people directly affected by Fake Vacs Programs.

The fake vacs program was revealed after the U.S. assassination of Osama bin Laden (allegedly) in Pakistan.  In 2011, under the presidency of Barack Obama, the CIA was using fake hepatitis vacs programs in Pakistan to covertly collect DNA samples in an attempt to find bin Laden.  Then, after the person who supposedly was Osama bin Laden was assassinated, Pakistanis became so suspicious of foreign vaccination programs that many tribes banned vaccinations, some even began assassinating health workers.  In 2014, the Obama regime swore that the CIA fake vacs program was ended, but only after 16 months of complaints from U.S. health organizations pointing out that legitimate vaccination programs were suffering as a result of the covert CIA ops.

The Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA run its fake vacs program is now in his 6th year in a Pakistani jail for his role in the covert operation.  The arrogant and uncaring U.S. Congress declared him “Doctor Hero”, yet they obviously don’t give a rat’s ass that he’s facing trial for treason in his home country for helping the United States.  As of yet, the doctor still hasn’t had a trial, the court keeps postponing it, he hasn’t even seen a lawyer in more than a year.

Since the 2011 assassination of supposed Osama bin Laden, the government of Pakistan makes it almost impossible for International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGO) to conduct operations, including vaccinations.

There’s now reports that the recent rescue of the Canadian couple in Afghanistan by Pakistani troops was delayed, possible by years, because of outrage over the CIA fake vacs program in Pakistan.

But the official halt to CIA fake vacs programs hasn’t stopped the U.S. Department of Defense from operating its own bullshit.  In June of this year a former U.S. mercenary (contractor), who was captured in Yemen in 2015,  just months ago revealed his job of helping with medical aid distribution for United Nations’ Unicef and the International Red Cross is actually an ongoing covert U.S. military operation!  The ‘company’ he worked for is called Transoceanic Development, based in Louisiana, who had a contract to deliver humanitarian aid to Yemen.  According to The New York Times report, unnamed U.S. government officials confirmed the covert military operation, under the guise of medical aid, but refused to give details.

Official video celebrating California National Guard’s 20+ years of False Flag-ism known as NATO’s Partnership for Peace, started under then U.S. president Bill Clinton.  While watching this please note that Ukraine descended into an overtly U.S.-NATO backed civil war, is that what our leaders mean by ‘partnership for peace’?

The obviously ‘christian’ Army National Guard personnel are deploying as part of Barack Obama’s ordered Operation Freedom’s Sentinel, to act as NATO trainers for the Afghan military.  The unit still needs to complete training at Fort Bliss, Texas, before actually deploying.

Whoever says this isn’t a religious war never heard the song Onward Christian Soldiers, which, by the way, is an 19th century British empire song, so I guess the U.S. is still a tool of the British.

What all the whiners about there not being enough federal government response to the massive hurricane damage in Puerto Rico don’t realize is they’ve inadvertently opened the door to massive militarization of the island territory.

Despite what the U.S. mainstream (fake) news reporting a ‘lack of response’ there is a massive military operation taking place all over Puerto Rico, and to a smaller extent on U.S. Virgin Islands.  The military is even using the U.S. Postal Service!

While FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) is officially in charge of responding to the hurricane damage, it’s actually U.S. Army North (a component of U.S. Northern Command) who’s in charge. However, the Department of Defense claims Army North is there to “support FEMA”.
