Obama and Eric Holder Do Nothing to stop The Draconian Unconstitutional Stop & Frisk & Sanctions on Iran Constitute An Act of War and A War Crime

Stop and Frisk

Welcome to Obama's  (not so) Post -racial / racist society

 Odd Obama doesn't suggest the AG Eric Holder look into these alleged criminal activity on the part of the police in New York City or any other places such abuses and crimes are committed. Of course it won't happen as we saw throughout the brutal unconstitutional crackdown on the Occupy Wall Street Movement Obama could have stepped in at anytime to voice his disapproval of the police tactics but he didn't not because of jurisdictional concerns but largely because he thought it might hurt him in his bid for re-election .   

But Obama is also fairly conservative and on many issues prefers the status quo like all the presidents before him and because he is America's first African-American president he has a tendency to over-compensate.

So to prove that he is a "real American" and not a leftist commie socialist extremist Obama as we have seen has been  revving up of the war on drugs shutting down state legislated legalized medical Marijuana dispensaries and filling the jails with even more black and Hispanics to gain approval from his white American critics.

So for all his talk and blather about Hope and Change Obama has turned out to be another conservative more in favor of law and order than in justice or doing the right thing such as seriously considering reevaluating the whole unsuccessful war on drugs.

Police officers are not just encouraged but are threatened with disciplinary action or sent into more dangerous situations ala Serpico
As the video below  shows the police department  is just concerned with filling their quota and not necessarily with law and order and justice. Their main concern is arresting as many people as possible even if it means finding excuses to do so ie claiming someone is showing disrespect for the police or that they are resisting arrest. In the video below the guy being stopped tries to explain he had just been stopped a few minutes prior to this stop and so he is understandably annoyed .

The police argue that he looks suspicious because he was looking behind -so anyone looking back over their shoulders is considered suspicious along with those who are black or Hispanic, or wearing baggy jeans and walking too slow or too fast or whatever. So in certain neighborhoods just being outside on the sidewalk is considered suspicious .  So like Trayvon Martin just strolling home from the corner shop because he is black and wearing a hoodie somehow can be stopped by police and harassed or beaten by police or tasered or just shot point blank by the trigger happy  self-anointed neighborhood watch thug. That's Obama's America where justice is an empty promise by propagandists running for public office but once on the inside soon learn the rules of this corrupt game of injustice.

To put it another way people in certain neighborhoods are supposed to stay in their homes or apartments except when going to and from work or going to a store . To the police and the mayor of New York and other cities and towns everyone especially those who are not white or who are poor are to be treated as if imprisoned in their own homes with few privileges ie going to work or shopping but not just hanging around or sitting on their stoops with friends and relatives.

Afghanistan: Killing the Kids that Don’t Need to Die
by Bill Moyers and Michael Winship Common Dreams, Oct. 10, 2012

Matt Sitton knew the war in Afghanistan was going badly. He knew it because he was fighting it. He could see for himself. Twenty-six years old, with a wife and child back home, Staff Sergeant Sitton was on his third combat tour there.

Time and again, he and his men were sent through what he called “a minefield on a daily basis.” His comrades were being blown apart — at least one amputee a day, he said, “Because we are walking around aimlessly through grape rows and compounds that are littered with explosives.”

Morale was low; the men struggled to remain alert. Sitton said he asked his officers to give them a break but was told to stop complaining.

“I am all for getting on the ground and fighting for my country when there is a desired endstate and we have clear guidance of what needs to be done,” he wrote. “But when we are told basically to just walk around for a certain amount of time is not sitting well with me.”

“Look at it this way,” journalist Dexter Filkins recently wrote in The New Yorker. “After eleven years, more than four hundred billion dollars spent and two thousand Americans dead, this is what we’ve built: a deeply dysfunctional, predatory Afghan state that seems incapable of standing on its own — even when we’re there.”

There are two more presidential debates. They will be yet another hoax unless someone puts to Barack Obama and Mitt Romney the same question asked by Congressman Young: “Why are we killing the kids that don’t need to die?” And then asks it again and again to each of them until we get an honest answer.

Crimes against humanity being committed against the Iranian people by USA given a legal veneer and supported by US and European Mainstream Media and the American controlled United Nations and NATO .

Here is some background to America's hatred and bigoted irrational views on Iran and the Iranian people since  As I have argued and Khamenie  also recently stated the the USA and Western nations have been gunning for Iran since the 1979 revolution . First they used Saddam and the Iraqis to fight a brutal proxy war against Iran for some 8 years according to conservative counts costing the lives of at least 1 million Iranians and Iraqis but this is as we see has not been enough to quench America's thirst for revenge so now the Americans and their allies are using the imaginary threat of a nuclear weapons stockpile to enforce inhumane brutal immoral sanctions on the ordinary people of Iran.

Ironically Iran was one of the first nations to express its sympathy with the USA after 9/11 and Iran offered to help find and destroy or capture  Al Qaeda's followers. The USA flatly refused since the Bush Regime was more interested in using the situation to invade Afghanistan and find or create a non-existent connection between Saddam and the 9/11 attack  .

Afghanistan was not innocent since it was harboring Bin Laden and Al Qaeda but the USA with the help of the intelligence agencies of other nations could have used other more subtle tactics to capture and or kill Bin Laden and AlQaeda but Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rice wanted something more dramatic to prove that George W. Bush was a worthy Commander in Chief so Bush rather than using the sympathy of the majority of nations to achieve his goal preferred to make dramatic statements which undermined the willingness of other nations to support the USA . So Bush recklessly and pointedly stated Either you are with us or against us therefore antagonizing America's would be allies.

After fabricating evidence that Iraq had WMDS and that Saddam helped Al Qaeda the USA convinced the UN through manipulation lies and propaganda and arm twisting and threats that Saddam was an imminent threat to its neighbors especially Israel and to the United States .  All of this was one Big Lie and yet the USA has not been made to in some way be held responsible for the unnecessary deaths of some 1 million Iraqis let alone the 500,000 Iraqi innocent civilians  who died needlessly during the decade or so of brutal barbaric inhumane sanctions which by definition fitted the crime of Genocide.

Harsh on Iran: 'Sanctions disgusting, hit ordinary people'

Published on Mar 23, 2012 by RussiaToday

The European Union has expanded its sanctions against Iran, freezing assets and adding more officials to a visa blacklist. It cites 'serious human rights violations' for the measures - which follow other similar penalties over the Islamic republic's nuclear programme.

The U.S. has just drawn up a list of countries which are to be cut-off from the American financial system - if they don't reduce Iranian oil imports within 6 months. Meanwhile, Israel says its threat of a military strike on Iran is stopping it from building a suspected nuclear bomb. Tehran maintains its atomic programme is for peaceful energy purposes only. But the U.S. is against an imminent attack on the Islamic state - believing it would drag the whole region into war.

'Iran sanctions genocidal, kill ordinary people'

Published on Aug 23, 2012 by RussiaToday
Iran and the UN nuclear watchdog will resume talks on Friday - more than two months after the previous, failed, round. Iran insists it only wants peaceful energy, but the West thinks a bomb's in the making.

Hopes aren't high for these negotiations either - and, all the while, sanctions from the U.S. and Europe continue to hit Iranian citizens hard. RT asks journalist and political commentator Hamid Reza Emadi how sanctions affect ordinary citizens.
