AMTV News: Barack Obama Arms Syrian ‘Rebels’ & Ryan Lochte’s Ridiculous Grill
Welcome to AMTV News, I’m your host Topher Morrison. Today is Thursday August 2nd, 2012.
Put your tinfoil hats on…
Barack Obama’s ‘Official’ Approval of State Terrorism
Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The same day a chilling video detailing bloody summary executions of pro Assad soldiers by rebel groups amidst a chorus of ‘Au Akbar’ was released. For over a year now report after report has been proffered to the world illustrating the sordid nature of the rebellion, the major powers behind its genesis and the influx of well-financed fundamentalist jihadists. The Obama administration is now, in a brazen effort, funding this most violent and dubious endeavor with tens of millions of dollars provided through various channels including the US state department, the Pentagon and the US Treasury. Obama has seemingly found solidarity with a group that relishes executing its own citizens without trial. Making the world safe for democracy is indeed a dirty business and like most of the businesses Obama touches guaranteed to fail and blowback on the American public.
Disarmed Chicago Now ‘Deadliest Global City’
Among the world’s alpha cities: Hong Kong, New York, London, Paris, Moscow even war torn Sao Paulo – Chicago is the deadliest. On its way to host 505 homicides this year Chicago, according to the Chief of Police, is in a state of ‘tribal warfare.’ But why? Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation yet mobs are common, lawlessness grips the city and Rahm Emanual is at a loss for solutions. NBC’s Edward McClelland blames it on lack of tough national gun laws, urban poverty and the history of segregation, but gang violence is of course an extension of the Drug War – something, which enjoys bipartisan support.
Li(e)bor: The Cartel Emerges
In the world of high finance the money market traders were low on the totem poll until they met for lunch one day around 2005. These generally unassuming, but eager traders wanted to make a big splash and they did. From Japan to Europe to Canada the small group formed a global cartel, which worked in synchronous to obfuscate the largest scandal in history affecting the interest rates of every human on the planet. During the boom years these underdogs were barely heard, but on the brink of the world financial crisis these rate manipulators became big bank saviors.
‘Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day’ Success & Failure
Business Insider & Huffington Post
It looks like Gov. Mike Huckabee’s “Chick-fil-A Appreciation day was a wild success packing fast food dispensaries all over the nation and beating back an early backlash against COO Dan Cathy’s admission the company doesn’t support gay marriage. Some incensed elected officials have urged Chick-fil-A to stay out of their cities and gay rights groups are organizing national protests. The real question is why are we allowing government to rule on relationships in the first place, defining our relationships is our prerogative.
These are not your grandparents criminals…
Flash Mob Crimes & Organized Looting
Until recently, most Americans had never even heard of “flash mob robberies” or “organized looting”. By now the shock has faded and it barely makes national headlines. It has been reported that tens even as much as 100 people mob a store and steal thousands in merchandise for only a few to be caught later – anonymity in numbers. Elizabeth Warren may think government protects us from marauding bands, but the scores of precious metal looting tells us a different story – the streets of America are changing.
This is over the top…
Ryan Lochte’s Ridiculous Grill
Nationalism has reached a new low embodied by none other than US Olympoan Ryan Lochte. While the Chinese wipe the floor with American flags Lochte rather than following in their footsteps chooses to follow the likes of Flavor Flav, Nelly, Lil Wayne and Lil Jon – you know the kind of guys you would love to be repping your country around the world. Don’t get me wrong I love a dope grill, but sporting your $25,000 smile biting into history’s biggest gold medal – that isn’t really gold – says not only something about Lochte, but says a lot to the world about America – disconnected and laden with hubris.
