The Greatest Predators On Earth

The face of colonialism has not changed; it has simply been morphed into a kinder, gentler murder-machine by the corporate "mainstream media"

WORLD NEWS

Having endured a series of colonial extermination campaigns, thirty-seven years ago, one year before his body returned to Mother Africa, President Jomo Kenyatta announced a ban on big game hunting. Kenyatta, Kenya's first black leader, and his people knew only too well who the greatest predator on Earth was, including the worst purveyors of violent extinctions. While certain Kenyans had endured near-mass extinctions, some animal and plant species had already disappeared. As part of a drive to conserve wildlife, he made sure the elephant, an endangered species, would also be protected in Kenya.


For centuries Kenyatta and his people, the Kikuyu, suffered under British colonial rule and economic exploitation. Discriminated against at every level, even forced to be outsiders of their own country, the British settlers excluded the Kikuyu and reserved exclusively for themselves the best farm land. During a six-year rebellion, 90,00 Kikuyu and black Kenyans were imprisoned without trial. Women and childrenwere herded like cattle into concentration camp-like conditions. Thousands died of starvation or succumbed to diseases. Young and old men were tortured and executed.


Mountain Bull has just been discovered dead in Kenya. The tusks of the forty-six-year old bull had been ripped out, his body covered with visible spear marks. The legendary six-ton elephant had become the face of the illicit poaching-for-ivory crisis in Africa. Despite being adopted by Save the Elephantsand fitted with a GPS tracking device, he was killed in theLewa Wildlife Conservancy, located in northern Kenya. Like the colonial powers which were amused by their imperial holdings and vast extermination campaigns, who will be entertained with a poached piece ivory marketed as jewelry or a carved statue?

Although Kenyatta helped liberate Kenya from British imperialism, it still suffers under the weight of colonial rule. Any benefits of westernization were distributed very unequally, often causing intertribal wars. Colonialplantations usually concentrated on cash crops for profit, much of the land ruined due to commercial farming and pesticides. Having been stripped of vital resources that were exported to Britain, scarcity has become an unwelcome visitor. Imperialists also ensured that agrarian and industrial economies would remain dependent on imports from theWest.


Although Kenya has a strong current of indigenous Africancapitalism and a substantial middle class, it still suffers from landlessness, high rates of unemployment (45 percent), and income inequities higher than most African standards. One-fifth of Kenya's population, six-million people, are squatters. Political, economic, and cultural independence has been agonizingly slow. It seems that uhuru (Swahili for "freedom") always comes with a price, even when imperial powers leave. The specter of conquer and divide and rule has transformed itself into the specter of capital and invest and control.


But if political and economic poverty is endemic in some parts of Kenya, so is population growth and drought. Poaching is only one reason that the world's largest land animal has nearly disappeared. Continued destruction of Kenya's elephant habitat, mainly its forests and grasslands, has also collapsed entire elephant populations. So too has climate change and industrial pollutants. Just as deadly as forest clearance for agriculture and logging, though, is a rapacious supply and demand market economy. Poachers supply the demands for statues and jewelries made from poached ivory. Elephants suffer annihilation.

Whether old or neo-colonialism, dehumanization, inequality, and exploitation, all which leads to near- and mass extinctions, still haunts Kenya's geography. These predators and purveyors of violence stalk the rest of Africa too, even the entire world including its living organisms and ecosystems. These are the original sins, often dressed up in imperial benevolence, corporate and financial board rooms, racial-political ideologies, adorned in religious garb. Occasionally an individual like Kenyatta is a reminder of what it means to be human, of what it means to be a liberator of people, and of elephants.


In Joseph Conrad's controversial but illuminating "Heart Of Darkness," he writes: "The mind of man is capable of anything-because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future. What was there after all? Joy, fear, sorrow, devotion, valour, rage-who can tell?-but truth-truth stripped of its cloak of time." 


Kenyatta and his people stripped theBritish predators of their self-righteous cloak. They uncovered a heart of cruelty, a pathology of other-imposed inequalities that still exists today. The truth of time always exposes genocidal crimes against humanity and all diverse species, including elephants.

As for a liberated Kenya and its unsatisfied wealthy, its economically disadvantaged, and its dwindling elephant herds: A few years back they shared a master. Today corrupt officials in their seated opulence have none, while others are forced to buy beyond their means. And yet some are expected to give what they cannot afford, what costs them their lives. Have they exchanged a parasite for something worse? But maybe a few years is too long a time.(1) The greatest predators still stalk Kenya and the rest of the Earth. But then can there really be freedom without equality among all organisms?

The British Royal Family Supported Hitler And The Nazis

Elephant-eared, anteater-nosed, cross-dressing Charles the epitome of limey lunacy, in-bred retardation, physical and moral cowardice

GLOBAL RESEARCH
By Kurt Nimmo
05/23/2014

In 1937 the Duke and Duchess of Windsor visited Germany and met Adolf Hitler.


Windsors do the Heil Hitler; kiss fascist ass
Prince Charles’ “well-intentioned” remark comparing Russian President Vladimir Putin to Hitler is ironic considering the well-established fact the British royal family was cozy with the real Hitler back in the day.

Prince Harry’s Nazi uniform, explained away as an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction in 2005, revisited a public relations disaster the royal family spent decades patching up.

Following the First World War, the royal family changed its name from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor to distract attention from its German heritage.


Family members of Prince Philip, who is from the house of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg, were unabashed supporters of Hitler and the Nazis.

Brother-in-law, Prince Christoph of Hesse, was a member of the SS. He piloted fighters that attacked allied troops in Italy.


Fruitcake Charles rivals U.S. coward John Kerry for sheer lunacy
Several weeks before Germany invaded Poland King George VI and his wife, the late Queen Mother, sent Hitler a birthday greeting.

“I never thought Hitler was such a bad chap,” said George’s brother, the former King Edward VIII, who became the Duke of Windsor after abdicating in 1936. 



Edward made this remark in 1970 when it was widely known that Hitler and the Nazis had directly and indirectly killed more than 40 million civilians and soldiers.

The Nazis planned to install the Duke as leader after a successful conquest of Britain. The former head of British naval intelligence said Hitler “would soon be in this country, but that there was no reason to worry about it because he would bring the Duke of Windsor over as king.”

Other royals were also connected to the Nazis. Baron Gunther von Reibnitz, the father of Princess Michael of Kent, was a party member and an honorary member of the SS. The brother of Princess Alice was a Nazi who claimed Hitler had done a “wonderful job.” 


Queen must be genuinely horrified at spasm she sired
Charles Edward was placed under house arrest after the war for his Nazi sympathies. He was sentenced by a denazification court, heavily fined and almost bankrupted. 

Much of the British gentry also held a fondness for Hitler and the Nazis. Lord Halifax was infatuated with Hitler and Sir Oswald Mosely served as the leader of the British Black Shirts. Montagu Norman, 1st Baron Norman, the Governor of the Bank of England from 1920 to 1944, was a close friend of the German Central Bank President Hjalmar Schacht. 


Schacht was an ardent supporter of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party and served in the Nazi government as President of the Reichsbank and Minister of Economics. Norman played a key role in transferring Czechoslovakian gold to the Nazis in March 1939.

Ukraine Descends Into Chaos Ahead of Sham Elections

Run-up to bogus fascist "elections" bear all the hallmarks of the Third Reich Nuremberg rallies and "Triumph of the Will"

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK
By Tony Cartalucci
05/23/2014

The regime in Ukraine is rushing forward with elections, supposedly to take place on May 25, even as much of the country descends into chaos. With Crimea now part of Russia, and two more provinces declared autonomous after recent referendums – with more provinces to follow – Kiev has responded with a campaign that resembles more of a foreign invasion and occupation than a national security operation. 


Naziism:  History repeating itself in Ukraine
With its regular army in shambles, Kiev has turned to a patchwork of militias, ad hoc mercenaries, armed gangs, and has even tasked loyal corporate-financial oligarchs with raising and deploying private armies of their own. 

The results is predicable mayhem and can be seen playing out most acutely in the breakaway province of Donetsk in Ukraine’s east. Recently militants, militias, and even helicopter gunships clashed near the town of Volnovakha leaving up to 16 dead.


Conflicting reports are emerging from the clash, but statements from both sides and video taken of helicopter gunships strafing what remained of an ambushed convoy of troops from Kiev depicts the regime engaged in a desperate and losing battle.

The BBC in its article “Ukraine crisis: Donetsk sees deadliest attack on troops,” reports:

A dawn attack on a checkpoint in eastern Ukraine has left at least 14 soldiers dead, in the worst loss of life for government forces to date. Heavily armed militants attacked the checkpoint in the Volnovakha area, in one of four attacks reported overnight in eastern Ukraine. It is unclear who attacked the checkpoint, with one Ukrainian officer telling the BBC it was not separatists.


BBC frauds, MSM liars will burn for aiding, abetting CIA
The BBC article never mentions gunships. RT’s report, “16 Ukraine soldiers killed in deadly Donetsk region checkpoint attack,” states: 16 Ukrainian troops were killed and over 30 injured in an attack on a military checkpoint in Donetsk Region. The deadliest assault on the army since Kiev launched its military operation in the south-east of the country comes a few days ahead of election. 


 The checkpoint on the edge of Blagodatnoe village, near the town of Volnovakha, was assaulted on Thursday night. Eyewitnesses told Russian Chanel One that the attackers arrived in transit vans, with armored vehicles and combat helicopters providing cover for them. The gunmen set fire to the military’s armored vehicles and began shooting at the rookie soldiers, who had their encampment near the checkpoint.


Obama and his murdering CIA, Merkel, Ashton, Hollande, Cameron, Hague responsible for failed Kiev coup and all resulting Ukrainian deaths

RT also provides two videos – one showing gunships at low altitude approaching the scene, and another of the aftermath of the attack. An additional video has surfaced showing the gunships strafing the convoy as Kiev troops huddle behind a troop transport truck in confusion, radioing in for confirmation as to why they are being attacked by their own air support. Several theories are emerging from the incident.

One is that the troops refused orders from Kiev and were attacked by local mercenaries raised by oligarchs loyal to Kiev. Another incident in Lugansk appears to also have involved Kiev troops opening fire on their own who refused orders. While the West attempts to blame Russia for the deaths, no theory has been offered by the US State Department or its echo chamber within the Western media as to how or why Russian gunships would have penetrated so far into Ukrainian airspace for a single attack.


Putin has had it up to the gills with the ludicrous lies and shenanigans of the Obama/NATO/EU fascists and would be justified invading Ukraine and advancing into Europe to put a once and for all decisive end to NATO, Merkel and the EU robber baron fascists

These incidents highlight Kiev’s inability to govern a country that its own belligerence is playing a key role in breaking apart. Despite the dangerous deterioration of Ukraine’s sociopolitical stability, it is rushing ahead with elections, with full backing from the West who already has its compromised “election monitors” in place to declare whatever takes place on May 25, “free and fair.”


Perhaps most ironic of all is the fact that troops in the streets across Crimea when it held its historic referendum was cited by the West as one of many reasons the referendum was “illegal.” It appears, suddenly, that not only troops, but ongoing armed clashes, is no longer an obstacle for polling to take place – as long as those armed are loyal to the regime in Kiev. Fears that anti-Kiev forces will disrupt the elections were suspiciously absent when armed thugs attempted to block polling stations in Donetsk during a recent referendum and began shooting dead unarmed voters. 


TIME magazine, in their “lightbox” section would feature a polling station blocked by armed militants wearing mismatching uniforms who beat and began shooting voters – at least two of which were killed.

Worse yet, the above cited BBC article also mentions in closing – almost as a side note – that:

In another development, residents of a village near Sloviansk, a town in Donetsk often seen as the separatists’ stronghold, complained of shelling that appeared to come from government positions.

As Kiev troops surround and shell populated centers in Donetsk, the West is not only failing to condemn war crimes it condemns elsewhere – including in Syria where it is trying to involve the International Criminal Court (ICC) - it is insisting that the regime carrying out these crimes in Ukraine should be allowed to hold and contest elections just days away.


Biased reporting has been the mainstay of special interests across the world and throughout history. 

However when such hypocrisy and systematic distortion works its way into a nation’s foreign policy, the entire political system and that nation’s ability to associate with others internationally is put in jeopardy. 


It is certain that elections in Ukraine will not solve the ongoing conflict, and very likely they will in no way even help the West advance its agenda in Eastern Europe. They will however further undermine and compromise the concept of Western-style “democracy” and all the institutions, organizations, infrastructure, and participants arrayed to perpetuate it. In the process, the crisis in Ukraine will only spread and intensify, costing many their lives undeservedly on both sides while the West pursues its ill-conceived extraterritorial agenda in Eastern Europe.

Donetsk Bloodbath : Insider Video Shows Ukraine Helicopters Firing At Own Checkpoint

Misguided Ukrainians sucked into the CIA/EU/UK fascist propaganda, riots and subsequent coup have only themselves to blame for the disintegration of their country

RT
05/23/2014

Ukrainian helicopter gunships shot at a Ukrainian military checkpoint in Donetsk Region in the aftermath of a night battle, a video presumably shot by one of the soldiers indicates. Apparently, Kiev’s troops suffer from gross lack of communications.


The eight-minute video on YouTube was shot near the town of Volnovakha in Ukraine’s Donetsk Region, according to the description. It shows a group of armed uniformed men with Ukrainian army insignia and at least two others in civilian clothes taking cover behind a military truck.

The vehicle is at a field and the men are observing from a distance a woodland belt separating on the field border.


At least two vans are seen and fire burns among the trees. Sporadic gunfire can be heard, possibly from ammunition detonating in the fire, and then a massive explosion erupts at the camp. The soldiers discuss whether they should fall back.

Then two Mil Mi-24 helicopter gunships start barraging at low altitude over the area. After several passes the aircraft start barraging the burning camp from their cannons.

“What are their doing?” one of the soldiers exclaims in surprise. “Are they ours?” “Who the f*** else?”another replies.

The group hastily flees the scene, but the cameraman continues shooting the footage, cursing and praying as he runs.

A couple of minutes later he gets to another woodland belt. He approaches another Ukrainian military man, who is speaking on a mobile phone.


People stand in a line to enter a polling station and take part in the referendum on the status of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, in Moscow May 11, 2014

“Who are they shooting at?” the man says. “There are civilians and our soldiers there. Do you have a line to the army aviation, what the f*** is happening?”

“Two [Mi-]24s and one [Mi-]8 arrived. They are flying over our checkpoint and shooting at our checkpoint,” the report continues. “There are lots of corpses there. We were dousing the burning BMP [infantry combat vehicle], we thought the Mi-8 was going to pick up the bodies. Now they are shooting.”

Ukrainian troops use their helicopters in the fight against the local armed militias opposing Kiev’s rule to destroy hardware damaged in the clashes to prevent it from falling into the hands of the militias. Miscommunication among the troops could have led to the aviation command believing that the checkpoint was taken over by the militias.

The video was uploaded on YouTube on Tuesday, which puts the timing of the video hours after a night attack on the military checkpoint near Volnovakha. The attack may not have been a militia raid, but rather a case of friendly fire, in which one pro-Kiev unit mistakenly attacked another unit.

The battle left at least 16 Ukrainian troops killed and 30 others injured.
