Journalism and Pornography: Real Crime is Always Organized

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

Douglas Valentine latest study of the CIA shows him to be “an excellent history teacher” – which is high praise from the reviewer, an excellent teacher, himself. The CIA is a banditry on a huge scale, “invented not simply as an advisory and coordinating instrument for spying but as a criminal organization to cover for the fundamental criminal activity of US corporations and those who own them.”

Sporting News: The International Olympic Committee and FIFA as Corporate Rod and Gun Clubs

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

The essence propaganda is not in the skill of the lies, or the slogans, but in the power to provide the context and interpretation of events, real and fictional. A guiltless president is impeached by a thoroughly corrupt legislature, while Olympic games provide the money and political cover for the crime. Corporate media provides a “context” that makes the coup look reasonable, so that the U.S. does not need to send in the fleet, as in 1964.

Moderate Extremism and Extremist Moderation: Symptoms of Structural Illiteracy and Racism in the US-European Empire

Dr. T. P. Wilkinson

U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children was “worth it” – meaning, a reasonable price to pay for continued U.S. global dominance. There is no price in “colored” people’s blood and sovereignty that the U.S. Empire is not willing to “pay.” Fortunately, “Russia has done for Syria what the Soviet Union was unable to do for Lumumba’s Congo” – prevent Syria from paying America’s “price.”

Mom, Is It War Yet? Part III: "Terminological Inexactitudes"

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

The only real challenge to the lies of Empire is to confront the Empire, itself. “The unstated premise of Euro-American domination is that the US and its European vassals constitute the highest stage of human and political development to which all other peoples and cultures naturally must aspire.”

Obama: Valedictorian of the U.S. School of Lies and Aggression

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

After 70 years of routine U.S. aggression and lawlessness in the world, Russia has drawn a line in Syria. President Obama’s response is to make veiled threats “to use whatever means are necessary to make Russia’s defense of Syrian sovereignty as impossible as its defense of the sovereignty of Afghanistan.

My Name is Nobody: Religious Fanaticism is a Western Tradition

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

Europeans and white Americans like to believe that religious fanaticism is endemic to the non-white, non-Christian world, and that they are the guardians of secular civilization. In reality, the historical rise of the West is a saga of fanaticism. In modern times, it was President Jimmy Carter who “started the wave of fanatical reactionary Islam in Afghanistan – to crush a secular regime there and indirectly attack the Soviet Union.”

What NEW World Order?

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

The current world older is nothing new. It is more than a half millennium old, having begun in 1492 when western Europeans began their conquest and enslavement of the rest of the planet. The order that white people created “has been nothing but a collective death sentence for the non-white world.”

Mom, Is it War Yet? – Part II: Two Suns in the Sunset

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

The United States has been under no threat from any other nation since the end of World War Two, but has invented various menaces to mask its own unrelenting quest for world domination. The Soviets, the “Red” Chinese, falling dominos, and now “terrorists” (created by the U.S.) provide “imaginary enemies that would continue the super-profits that had begun in the West.”

Color Blind or Just Blind

by Dr. T.P. Wilkinson

Liberals, the Phony Left, and the supine Black Misleadership Class spread the false gospel that, as bad as things are, they are far better than they used to be. But what could be uglier than summary police murder of Black people, mass Black incarceration, or the dispossession of thousands of Blacks from their homes? The arc of in-justice is also long. “By the time Martin Luther King had finally realized that Malcolm X was right, he too was dead.”

The Only Issue in 2016 – the Legacy of 1776

by Dr. T. P. Wilkinson

The clowns are gathering for the circus that tours the U.S. every four years. There will be sideshows aplenty, but the central theme of the extravaganza – its sacred core – is worship of the right to private property, including the human kind, “the biblical ecumenical movement that has kept white supremacy strong, healthy and unrepentantly racist since the Founding Oligarchs.”

Who Won Which War? A fly’s Eye View of the American War Against Vietnam: 40 Years Later

by Dr. T. P. Wilkinson

If you believe that there was only one, multigenerational war in Vietnam, then the history of the country has escaped you. One war defeated French and Japanese colonialism. In the next, Washington “sent mainly African-Americans and poor whites to kill ‘gooks’” in the millions, followed by a covert war against the people of the region and, since 1975, a U.S. campaign “to both punish and further exploit the Vietnamese people.”

U.S. Empire-Building “Interventions”

by Dr. T. P. Wilkinson

After World War II, the U.S. rushed to replace European colonialism with its own, corporate variety. When it encountered resistance in Korea and Vietnam, Washington deployed “the strategy and tactics derived from the fundamental principles of white America: Negro slavery and annihilation of indigenous peoples.” But “war” was never declared. Instead, the U.S. developed and refined an elaborate fiction of “intervention” to explain its aggressions.

Do Americans Really Want a Genuine US Policy that Respects an Independent Cuba?

A review by Dr. T. P. Wilkinson

By its own admission, the Obama administration’s new stance towards Cuba is not a change in policy. It still favors regime change. U.S. obsession with the island to the south is historically rooted in race; Cuba’s blackness made it impossible for the white supremacist United States to absorb, but also required that the island be prevented from providing a “good example” to the world – and to Blacks in the U.S.

Charlie Hebdo and the “Wild West”

by Dr. T P Wilkinson

Charlie Hebdo propagandists are sending a cowboys-and-Indians media message. “The image of the fanatical Muslim ‘Indians’ – on the warpath – attacking a tiny, helpless intellectual family in the Parisian prairie is pure fantasy cultivated by the mass media presentation of events.” The cartoonists may have been civilians, but they were hardly non-combatants.

Mass Murder as Political Marketing

by Dr. TP Wilkinson

The CIA’s infamous program to crush the resistance to U.S. occupation of South Vietnam is largely remembered as a gigantic campaign of assassination that claimed tens of thousands of lives. However, the Phoenix Program is best understood as an extension of U.S. propaganda.

The “Moral Equivalence of the Founding Fathers”

by Dr. T P Wilkinson

The tall tale that claims to be U.S. history depicts the war of independence from Britain as motivated by a deep yearning for democracy. Dr, Gerald Horne’s new book frames the white settler secession as a revolt to ensure the continuity of slavery, which was growing unpopular in the home country and intolerable to the Black captives. Horne “shows that slave resistance forced the settler elite to declare independence from Britain.”

Is a New “Cold War” Coming? You Can’t Be Serious

by Dr. T P Wilkinson

We are said to be returning to conditions of Cold War – although the term was never sufficiently explained back in the days when it was believed operative. In reality, Cold Wars past and, supposedly, present, are also hot and always deadly to millions of people. They are “the logical extension of Manifest Destiny, the particularly US term for imperialism.”

Psycho-Cartoon Warfare: Putin as Hitler

by Dr. T P Wilkinson

The real Hitler was rather popular in upper class western circles, at least until the start of World War Two. The media’s use of “Hitler” as a pejorative has little to do with the actual politics of the world’s most famous fascist. The Hitlerization of Putin turns reality on its head, “making the actual aggressor appear to be a victim by accusing one's target of all the acts actually perpetrated by oneself.”

1776, The Slaveholders’ Revolution: A Review of "Negro Comrades of the Crown"

 

by Dr. T. P. Wilkinson

Blacks posed a military threat to the slaveholder’s plans for an independent America. “Horne’s history of African-Americans fighting on the side of Great Britain against the United States and its racist regime shows that the continued hostility of the United States government at all levels toward African-Americans is not the product of mere cumulative prejudice against people of color.”
