Since on international matters the New York Times lies systematically in order to support the U.S. Government against all Governments (and others) that the U.S. Government wants to eliminate or overthrow, such as in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Ukraine before America’s 2014 coup there, and the Palestinians, only one example will be analyzed here, to show the general method by which it deceives its readership.
Nicholas Kristof is as much a part of the New York Times U.S. Establishment as anyone except the family who own the newspaper, and has worked there for 39 years in many capacities, including as economics reporter, Managing Editor for the Sunday Editions, and now, columnist. He, like his friend Bill Clinton and many others at top levels in the U.S. Government, was a Rhodes scholar studying at Oxford with only fellow-supporters of U.S. and UK imperialism and support of and by the CIA and MI6, as well as of other agencies of regime-change (by coup or else invasion) for the spread of ‘democracy’ by the U.S./UK empire that had started its control over America on 25 July 1945 and that has continued expanding this empire ever since except for the final two years of the JFK Presidency. (Is it a democracy? No empire can even possibly be a democracy, because its vassal-nations or colonies — ‘allies’ — are subordinates to the imperial regime, and are actually its slave-nations. So, Rhodesism, commonly called “neoconservatism,” like any other imperialistic ideology, is a dictatorship, never a democracy. However, America’s empire promotes itself as ‘spreading democracy’. That’s its “brand.”)

Part of the Rhodes doctrine was introduced actually after Rhodes’s 1902 death, by his followers who saw in zionism an opportunity to use a Jewish-controlled state in the Middle East as a beach-head for themselves (the “Special Relationship” UK/U.S.) to continue controlling the Arab states after Britain’s direct control of them would wind down. When U.S. President Harry Truman on 25 July 1945 accepted the advice from both the plain imperialist General Eisenhower, and the committed Rhodesist imperialist Winston Churchill, for the U.S. Government to take control over the entire world because otherwise the Soviet Union would take it over (which was actually a lie, but Truman fell for it), that was the big Rhodesist (or commonly called “neoconservative”) win, which actually started the Cold War. And the lie that it actually was, became clear after the U.S./UK regime secretly continued the Cold War on its side after the Soviet Union ended it on its side in 1991.
Kristof’s special double-length column on October 28th headlined “‘We Are Overpaying the Price for a Sin We Didn’t Commit’” (quoting there sympathetically from a Palestinian), and this actual enemy of rights for the Palestinian people (Kristof) pretended there, both in that headline and in his column and ‘news’-report, to be sympathetic to the Palestinians whom Israel now is slaughtering. Such pretense of sympathizing with the U.S. Government’s (and its ‘allies’) victims, has been his stock-in-trade trick throughout his career. But then he got to his real message, when he wrote:
Israel has the right to defend itself and strike military targets in Gaza, and there should be strong international pressure on Hamas to release its hostages. My reporting in Gaza over the years convinces me that Gazans themselves would be much better off if Hamas could be removed: Some American liberals don’t appreciate how repressive, misogynistic, homophobic and economically incompetent Hamas is in Gaza, to say nothing of its long history of terror attacks on Israel. All this explains why many Gazans are fed up with Hamas.
Those hostages were taken and are being held by Hamas as a self-defense tool for the Palestinians; they are a message to the Israeli regime — a message to the prison-guards in this the world’s largest open-air prison, containing 2.2 million inmates many of whom had been born into it and none of whom are allowed by Israel’s regime ever to leave it — a message to the Israeli-American regime from Hamas, saying: If you kill us, we shall kill them. War is a continuation of politics by other means, and when the opponent is out to kill you, then you have the right to seize some of the opponents to be hostages. If you were born into this prison, then doubly is this so. Those hostages won’t be released except in trade for some weakening of Israel’s invasion of Palestine. They are tools on the political aspect of a war. Kristof’s assumption that “there should be strong international pressure on Hamas to release its hostages” lies about the reality there. This is war. Kristof, always a fake ‘defender of the underdog’ and real propagandist for maintaining and expanding the U.S./UK empire, ignores the reality, he lies about it, and pretends that Hamas has no right to seize and keep those hostages.
The conference brings together some of the leading lights in Liberty to discuss our current political situation and SOLUTIONS, including how to create local Liberty groups and Freedom Cells and how to move yourself out of organized crime’s crooked admiralty law system by correcting your status and standing.
