"Obama is a War Criminal!", and so IS Trump
The following is a link to a transcript of a speech given by Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law. He’s the senior professor at the College of Law having taught there for 41 years and attended Harvard Law School, the same as war criminal Barack Obama.
It’s not a long speech, more like some prepared remarks. He explains how he was initially “fairly disposed toward Obama” but learned quickly like many of us that Obama was just a Big Fat Liar, and a war criminal to boot. His remarks were evidently in response to the University of Illinois giving Obama an “ethics in government” award (at least it's not another Nobel prize). He doesn’t mince words.
“The University of Illinois is giving him an “ethics in government” award. This is a sick joke and a demented fraud! The University of Illinois, for its own typical bootlicking reasons, wants to whitewash all of Obama’s international crimes. Obama should be sitting in a jail cell in The Hague with the International Criminal Court and not here getting some bogus “ethics in government” award from the bootlickers of the University of Illinois campus bigwigs."
He goes on the say he’s hardly alone in his sentiments (Chomsky, Unger, etc.) and that Trump is simply continuing the same policies put in place under Obama and Bush. But, he says, Obama definitely knows better (as opposed to Trump who knows only himself) because “He’s a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School just like I am. Obama has abandoned and betrayed every known Principle of the Rule of Law that I ever learned at Harvard Law School including the United States Constitution which he doesn’t give diddly-squat about. “
Just to be clear, he states:
“Obama is a monster! He’s a criminal! As I said he should be in jail, not getting some bogus “ethics” award from the bootlickers at the University of Illinois administration.”
Right on, Francis.
He goes on to list some of Obama’s war crimes including his “genocidal work” in Afghanistan, and his wars in Libya, Syria and Yemen. For those that know the truth about U.S. imperialism it’s not new nor a surprise (always an enlightening read however). But shout it from the rooftops Professor, the more the merrier as they say in antiwar land.
Which brings me to Trump. I’ve been concerned about all the talk of the deep state, the democratic party and evidently the lizard people as well all wanting to take down Trump. My concern isn't for Trump. His supporters who dig in even deeper (THEY hate HIM so HE must be on OUR side!) and many others, including a segment of the left, are quite concerned about our “democracy” and our “constitutional process” being damaged beyond repair (FUBAR) because of this elected and unelected cabal trying to prevent him from doing his duties and possibly remove (a bona fide war criminal) him from office.
The most common refrain is that they’re preventing Trump from seeking peace (yes, I'm exaggerating) with North Korea, Russia and Syria, like that’s some kind of fact or something and that it will result in World War III or worse. All of this conjecture on what Trump would or wouldn't do is all based on Trump’s own words (as opposed to what he's actually done), and what exactly IS Trump boys and girls? That’s right, a Big Fat Liar just like Obama (and a war criminal to boot).
Here's Paul Craig Roberts:
"This plot against Trump is dangerous to life on earth and demands that the governments and peoples of the world act now to expose this plot and to bring it to an end before it kills us all."
In other words,
"The reason that America is at risk is that the CIA and the presstitute media have put America—and Europe—at risk by frustrating President Trump’s intention to reduce the dangerous level of tensions between the two major nuclear powers."
Regardless of what Trump would or wouldn't do without parts of the ruling class affecting him, what he has done is without question. The fact is that Trump is also a war criminal like his predecessors. It's too fucking late, he not only should be removed from the office of the president like yesterday, he should be put on trial and sentenced to life in prison for his crimes. Regardless of his meetings with Kim and Putin and his interminable bullshit tweets, Trump has been Commander in Chief (CINC) of the U.S. imperialist military machine for over a year and a half and is responsible for the war crimes conducted under his command, of which there are many. It's that simple. It has to be that simple, doesn't it?
So all this talk about Trump being stopped from doing this or that regarding foreign policies is troubling to me because he’s already done enough to justify throwing him in prison alongside Obama and Bush and many, many others, and throwing away the fucking key. No one talks about THAT.
Those attempting to defend Trump against the deep state seem like they’re accepting Trump’s war crimes because they think, based on Trump’s own words (um, he’s a fucking liar) that he wants some kind of peace with Russia, North Korea and Outer Space (you know that's next don't you?) but the deep state won’t let him, and those trying to stop him are out to start absolute chaos. The last part certainly is true but that doesn't change what Trump has done while in office. Since when do words from a lying billionaire cancel out the murdering of innocent children?
It all seems so ass backward, which of course is the way it is now. War is peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength and Donald Trump, the war criminal, is our only hope for "Peace".
