Hillary's Honduran Death Squads Through Assassinations, Kidnappings, Rape & Torture Keeping US PUPPET IN POWER

Update on Vatican Sex Scandals:

I had to add this report that the Vatican it is claimed has said in effect that the Sex Scandals are just an attack on the Catholic Church by the Jews. Once again the Vatican if this report is true has reverted to its historical 2000 year campaign against the Jews After 2000 years of incessant anti-Semitism this is a hard habit for the Vatican to quit.

Bishop 'blames Jews' for criticism of Catholic church record on abuse the Guardian April 11, 2010

A furious transatlantic row has erupted over quotes that were attributed to a retired Italian bishop, which suggested that Jews were behind the current criticism of the Catholic church's record on tackling clerical sex abuse.

A website quoted Giacomo Babini, the emeritus bishop of Grosseto, as saying he believed a "Zionist attack" was behind the criticism, considering how "powerful and refined" the criticism is.

The comments, which have been denied by the bishop, follow a series of statements from Catholic churchmen alleging the existence of plots to weaken the church and Pope Benedict XVI.

Allegedly speaking to the Catholic website Pontifex, Babini, 81, was quoted as saying: "They do not want the church, they are its natural enemies. Deep down, historically speaking, the Jews are God killers."

Secondly in a bizarre move the Vatican removes its Fatwa against the Beatles which it imposed over forty years ago. So how is the Catholic Church and other Christian institutions different from Extremist Muslims who get all worked up over what to others seem trivial .

Thirdly the Vatican makes more empty promises and white washes the abuse of children by Catholic Clergy. The Vatican contends this is an internal matter & not one for the police. As one victim on CTV News today asked "why is the clergy exempt from Canadian law regarding child abuse ?". Teachers, Social Workers, therapists , doctors and other professionals are not exempt from Canadian or other countries laws regarding Child abuse.And note this is not merely an issue of so called Political Correctness but is an issue concerning very real crimes with disastrous catastrophic consequences for its victims which the Vatican and Catholic
have little interest in.

The Vatican is just upset that this issue has received too much publicity about what they see as an internal issue for the Church. The Vatican is angry that members of its Church would dare to go public or to ask for police help in regards to sexual abuse cases involving Catholic Priests since they are these Holy Beings who may be according to the Vatican incapable of sinning so whatever they do is alright by the church as long as it is kept quiet. But abuse victims are always told to keep quiet and the Church over the years has protected these priests but had little interest in the welfare of those abused.


Hilary's Neoliberal policies regarding her support of the illegitimate regime in power in Honduras is just Neocon or the same old American Imperialist' anti-Democratic policies with a Happy Face. Hilary is proud of her Honduran Death Squads who keep the military backed regime in power.

Anyway here is another story about injustice this time regarding America's backing of the illegitimate anti-Reform Phony Regime in Honduras.

From Real News Network:

While State Department attempts to sell the world that the inauguration of a new president in Honduras has brought an end to the country's crisis, the continuing assassinations of anti-coup activists and their children stands as sharp evidence to the contrary. Video includes interviews with Father Ismael "Melo" Moreno, director of Honduras' Radio Progreso, and Adrienne Pine, anthropologist from American University and Honduras expert.

Produced by Jesse Freeston.


JESSE FREESTON, PRODUCER, TRNN: Since the inauguration of Pepe Lobo as the president of Honduras on January 27, the US State Department has been the new government's most vocal supporter, urging the region to follow the US lead in restoring relations with the Honduran government, relations that were largely cut after the military coup of June 2009. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made Honduras one of her top priorities on her recent tour of Latin America.

HILLARY CLINTON, US SECRETARY OF STATE: We think that Honduras has taken important and necessary steps that deserve the recognition and the normalization of relations. Other countries in the region say that, you know, they want to wait awhile. I don't know what they're waiting for, but that's their right, to wait.

Poor delusional Hilary chastises other nations who refused to kow tow to her and Obama's administration regarding foreign policies including that of America's relationship with Honduras.

From the moment President Zelaya was ousted by the military in Honduras there were growing suspicions that this was another made in America Military Coup d'etat and those suspicions are probably closer to the truth than Obama or the Mainstream Media wants to admit. Under the freedom of information act in the USA we may find out the truth in about 25 to 50 years unless Wikileaks is able or has been able to get hold of secret documents pertaining to America's involvement in the Coup d'etat and the phony elections and the cover up of torture and murder and rape committed by the new government. The historical record on American backed coups and other interferences in other countries internal affairs has been a typical trend throughout US history-

The American government, the Pentagon & CIA backed the vicious vile and brutal Shah of Iran, Saddam Hussein of Iraq , General Pinochet of Chile , the brutal Marcos regime in the Philippines , Suharto of Indonesia , the Apartheid regime in South Africa, the dictators in Guatemala , Nicaragua , Franco's dictatorship in Spain and numerous other dictators, Junta's Oligarths around the Globe . This on going CIA and Special Ops. Black Ops policy is not for the benefit of foreign country but is rather to do with America's strategic , political and ideological interests. When eve some country moves to what American's call the left their recourse is to oust such a government by military means with the help of CIA etc. and those locals who have been trained in Assassination , torture, intimidation at the Infamous School of Americas where the Americans train Death Squads , professional agitators and propagandists to ensure their countries are pro-American and pro-rapacious capitalism.

What Hilary says about the Military regimes making the right moves in the right direction what she means is that the current regime will do as America orders it to by crushing any attempts to make Honduras into a real democratic more liberal and egalitarian society in which all citizens have equal rights and there is respect for Human rights.

What the Honduran people want is a system which takes care of all citizens not just the rich and well connected. What the Honduran people want and deserve for more just and fair economic and social system. This would mean for instance the creation of a free good quality education and a modern effective Health Care system for all citizens. The government should essentially have policies which are beneficial for all Hondurans and not necessarily beneficial to America's government policies in South America and Central America or to the benefit of American industry and multinationals in Honduras. But as we know America even under Obama still sees the world in terms of the Cold War of Rapacious unfettered Capitalism versus any sort of socialist type policies.

Besides as we know she and others in Washington are involved with the Cedar Street "Fellowship aka Doug Coe's The Family which has supported over the years various brutal mass murdering dictators as long as long as they believe the Warrior Jesus.

For some reason Hilary Clinton and the US are backing another anti-Democratic military elitist Regime which to stay in power relies upon the use of intimidation,kidnappings , assassinations & torture have continued fro the day Zelaya was ousted from power by the Honduran Military and the US Government & CIA
The election that was held was far from a legal or just election. All of those political parties and individuals who were against the Coup d'etat refused to take part in the Phony election proving just because a country has an election does not mean it is a democratic regime.

Hilary Clinton & Obama administration approves of the killing of peaceful dissidents. No surprise here for anyone who has paid attention to American foreign policy in Latin America and the backing of anti-democratic elitist military Regimes

From Real News Network: Honduras Still Under The Thumb of Anti-Democratic Brutal Regime which kills unarmed dissidents.

The Honduran coup: another US destabilization operation by Barry Grey and Rafael Azul at Global Research Institute.ca, June 30, 2009

While publicly opposing the military coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya on Sunday, the Obama administration on Monday indicated that it will not cut off aid to the Central American country or demand Zelaya’s reinstatement.

Following a White House meeting with Washington’s closest Latin American ally, Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, President Obama reiterated the position that the ouster of Zelaya was illegal. However, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters at a State Department briefing that the US government was refraining from formally declaring the removal of Zelaya a “coup.”

Under the Foreign Assistance Act, no US aid can be given to a country whose elected head of government is removed by a military coup. The US is providing Honduras with $43 million in aid this year and maintains a major military presence in the country, including a base staffed by 600 US troops located 50 miles from the capital, Tegucigalpa. The US has also refrained from recalling its ambassador to Honduras.

Earlier on Monday, Clinton was asked whether the stated US goal of “restoring democratic order in Honduras” included returning Zelaya to the presidency. “We haven’t laid out any demands that we’re insisting on,” Clinton replied.

The official US line is that it attempted unsuccessfully to convince the Honduran military not to proceed with the coup. However, this amounts to a tacit acknowledgment that Washington was well aware of the coup plans.

Given the intimate and long-standing ties between the US and the Honduran military, the record over many decades of US-backed coups and military dictatorships in the country and the region, and the ongoing efforts to destabilize the regime of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, it is not credible that the US played no role in the removal of one of Chavez’s allies in Latin America.

and from Australia on the Honduran situation and that it is similar to US involvement in Guatemala , Nicaragua, El Salvador in the 1980s when Americans backed death squads and the Mercenaries known as the Contras .

and : Honduras: US-backed mediation legitimizes military coup By Bill Van Auken 11 July 2009

The talks convened in the Costa Rican capital San José on Thursday with the purported aim of resolving the political crisis unleashed by the June 28 coup in neighboring Honduras, are shaping up as a farce. The apparent object of this fraudulent exercise is to legitimize the military overthrow of the elected president of Honduras and realize the aims of Washington and the predominant sections of the right-wing Honduran oligarchy.

Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, who last month was seized by troops, bundled onto an airplane and flown to San José and exile, returned to the Costa Rican capital Wednesday and was the first to hold talks the next day with the US-designated mediator, Costa Rican President Óscar Arias.

One of America's concerns about Honduras or other nations is that the American government and the business interests which it represents they fear the improvement on civil rights and the rights of workers, increases in minimum wage , overtime regulations, benefits for workers etc. Such changes American and international and Multinational Conglomerates they believe would reduce their already exploitative profit margins.

Honduras: Military Coup Engineered By Two US Companies? By John Perkins August 07, 2009 "Information Clearing House"

-- I recently visited Central America. Everyone I talked with there was convinced that the military coup that had overthrown the democratically-elected president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, had been engineered by two US companies, with CIA support. And that the US and its new president were not standing up for democracy.

Earlier in the year Chiquita Brands International Inc. (formerly United Fruit) and Dole Food Co had severely criticized Zelaya for advocating an increase of 60% in Honduras’s minimum wage, claiming that the policy would cut into corporate profits. They were joined by a coalition of textile manufacturers and exporters, companies that rely on cheap labor to work in their sweatshops.

Memories are short in the US, but not in Central America. I kept hearing people who claimed that it was a matter of record that Chiquita (United Fruit) and the CIA had toppled Guatemala’s democratically-elected president Jacobo Arbenz in 1954 and that International Telephone & Telegraph (ITT), Henry Kissinger, and the CIA had brought down Chile’s Salvador Allende in 1973. These people were certain that Haiti’s president Jean-Bertrand Aristide had been ousted by the CIA in 2004 because he proposed a minimum wage increase, like Zelaya’s.

I was told by a Panamanian bank vice president, “Every multinational knows that if Honduras raises its hourly rate, the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean will have to follow. Haiti and Honduras have always set the bottom line for minimum wages. The big companies are determined to stop what they call a ‘leftist revolt’ in this hemisphere. In throwing out Zelaya they are sending frightening messages to all the other presidents who are trying to raise the living standards of their people.”

Responding to the Honduran Coup By Rosie Wong, March 16, 2010

The Honduran Coup and the Clinton Connection:A pro-coup faction in the Obama administration by Justin Raimondo, July 27, 2009

and from ACLU two stories about the US draconian treatment of Muslim Americans:

Formerly-Excluded Muslim Scholars Arrive in U.S.
Two prominent scholars arrived in the United States after years of being wrongfully-denied entry to the country on the basis of their political views. The ACLU challenged the denial of visas to Professors Adam Habib of the University of Johannesburg and Tariq Ramadan of St. Antony's College at Oxford University in separate lawsuits filed on behalf of American organizations that had invited them to speak to U.S. audiences.

During the Bush administration, the U.S. government denied visas to dozens of foreign artists, scholars and writers not on the basis of their actions but on the basis of their ideas, political views, and associations.

In a major victory for civil liberties, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in January signed orders effectively ending the exclusion of Professors Habib and Ramadan. Both men have since obtained 10-year visas.

This week, Professor Adam Habib spoke about his exclusion and transnational social movements at Harvard Law School at an event co-sponsored by the ACLU of Massachusetts, and gave a public talk at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York on the topic of political and social movements in South Africa today. Upon his arrival in the United States, Professor Habib commented: "This is not only a personal victory but also a victory for democracy around the world, and I hope this signals a move by the administration to begin restoring the liberties and freedoms that have been so badly eroded in recent times."

The ACLU also co-hosted a panel discussion in New York that featured Professor Tariq Ramadan in his first U.S. appearance since he was barred from entering the country in 2004. Before a sold-out audience at Cooper Union’s Great Hall, Professor Ramadan discussed and defended his views related to secularism, Islam, and democracy on a panel. In an article about his entry to the U.S., Professor Ramadan stated: "I'd like to carry on the work I've been doing, to create a collaboration between western countries and Muslim majority countries."

Private Contractor at DHS Instructs Police to Arrest Mother of Four

As the ACLU has been pointing out for years, the terrorist watchlists are a mess. But a recent story in the New York Times illustrates this very well.

The name of a Stanford University doctoral student and mother of four, Rahinah Ibrahim, was found on a no-fly list when she tried to fly out of the United States recently. She was handcuffed, searched and jailed—then released without explanation. She then had her U.S. visa revoked—blocking her from returning to the U.S., again without explanation. And of course, like everybody else whose name comes up on one of these watchlists, she could not find out why she is on the list or how to get off.

The Times reports a very interesting new piece of information about the operation of the watchlists, however. When Ibrahim triggered the no-fly list at the airport, the San Francisco police contacted Washington, where an employee of U.S. Investigations Services—a private company contracting for DHS—told the San Francisco police to arrest her. In the United States, nobody is supposed to be arrested without probable cause that they have committed a crime. The idea that someone can be arrested based on the fact that their name is somewhere within our security bureaucracy—at the direction of a corporate contractor 2,500 miles away—just sums up what's wrong with the watchlist system.

As the ACLU has reported on several occasions, there is a newfound enthusiasm for reporting suspicious activity within the security establishment. What it translates into is the logging and reporting of a broad range of innocent, everyday behavior, and innocent people are being harassed for no reason—especially when they look Arab or Muslim. In her lawsuit over her arrest, Ibrahim has had to battle against a government which used secrecy at every turn to try to defend its actions. Ultimately, as the Times reports, "a federal judge scoffed at the government's claim for secrecy" and accused the government of "abusing" the secrecy privilege.

The United States can't simply throw together new infrastructures like the watchlists without including rigorous due process procedures. But that's what the Bush administration did, and unfortunately, the Obama administration is following suit—full steam ahead. We must demand that fairness and due process be integrated into this system on a much deeper level.

and so it goes,
