Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (9/23/18).
Despite very clear evidence that the US oligarchy has long-sought the overthrow of the Iranian government — for their own self-serving hegemonic interests — and members of the current Trump administration continuing to openly say that the goal is currently regime change, the White House ridiculously continues to assert that “regime change in Iran is not the official policy of the US.” They are clearly banking on the hope that Americans, due to years of relentless social programming, do not have the mental fortitude to research back more than a few days, if at all.
As if such monstrously false statements were not enough, in a staggeringly absurd display of flat-out deception by Nikki Haley — something she has made into a daily occurrence as a US representative at the United Nations — she not only stated that the US is not seeking regime change in Iran, but that “we’re not looking to do regime change anywhere.”
Well let’s take a moment and demonstrate just how truly ludicrous such a statement is coming from a US official. These stats come from Global Research:
Instances of the United States overthrowing, or attempting to overthrow, a foreign government since the Second World War. (* indicates successful ouster of a government)
Q: Why will there never be a coup d’état in Washington?
A: Because there’s no American embassy there.
Now one may say, “that was all before Trump was elected, and he is different.” Ignoring for a moment the fact that Syria is still under way with Trump in office, the reality is that aggressive and violent regime change in the name of “democracy” and “liberation” is the foundation on which US foreign policy was built. And without fail, US intervention under any guise has left the “liberated” nation in absolute and utter ruin. More to the point, not only is President Trump’s foreign policy no different, he has in fact increased every field of war on which the US fought under Bush and Obama, and done so in bloody and relentless fashion — even getting the US embroiled in new areas of war that cannot be excused away as “trying to finish what other presidents had started.” This all following an entire campaign run on the idea of not being the policemen of the world, an end to US interventionism, and “America First.” Well sadly, very little Trump has done has been in any way “America First.”
This by the way should be in no way taken as a shot at Trump himself, I do see him as part of the problem, but no more or less than any puppet-in-chief before him. If he woke up tomorrow and began doing what is truly in the best interest of Americans, I would have no issue with singing his praise. However, any rational individual, who can see beyond the illusion and comforting suffocation of two-party politics, can see that not only is Nikki Haley’s laughable statement a willful lie, but that US policy has long been about neocolonialism and geopolitical control, and has very little (if any) do with American interests — even, and especially, under Donald Trump.
As always, take the information discussed in the video below and research it for yourself, and come to your own conclusions. Anyone telling you what the truth is, or claiming they have the answer, is likely leading you astray, for one reason or another. Stay Vigilant.
