Blinken’s Big Lies and Mass Deception
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Like most others in Washington and the West, interventionist Blinken lies, deceives and can never be trusted.
His hostile to world peace, stability and the rule of law is all about advancing US imperial interests through perpetual wars by hot and/or other means against invented enemies.
On Monday before the House foreign affairs committee, Blinken recited us usual litany of Big Lies and mass deception.
He falsely called “stopping” annual flu-renamed covid a “major test” for the US.
He lied claiming that the US is committed to “defend(ing) the international rules-based order” it systematically breaches multiple times daily — as it’s done repeatedly throughout the post-WW II period and earlier.
He called for “renew(ing) (US) democratic values” that never existed before and clearly don’t now.
He requested congressional approval of $58.5 billion for USAID.
Promoting US imperial interests, the organization seeks to undermine nations free from US control by coups, color revolutions and other dirty tricks.
What Blinken called US “foreign assistance to advance human rights” is all about abusing them at home and abroad by diabolical US policies.
His congressional request of $300 million for the so-called National Endowment for Democracy is all about NED’s mandate to combat and eliminate rule of, by and for people equitably wherever it exists.
His State Department budget request has nothing to do with “prevent(ing) violence, reduc(ing) poverty, curtail(ing) endemic corruption, and expand(ing) job and educational opportunities” anywhere.
Nor will any funding be used for supporting “refugees, victims of conflict, and other displaced people.”
Their status is largely to entirely because of US wars of aggression in multiple theaters.
Funding Middle East countries is all about US pursuit of control over the oil-rich region.
Funds go largely to apartheid Israel, its war machine, and for permanent US occupation of regional countries.
There’s little or no humanitarian aid for Palestinians in need.
What’s budgeted goes entirely to the pro-Western, Israeli installed PA puppet regime for controlling Palestinians, not serving them.
There’s nothing for besieged Gazans, nothing for other Occupied Palestinians, nothing for regional peace and stability over endless US/NATO/Israeli aggression.
Like many times before, Blinken falsely accused China and other nonbelligerent nations on the US target list for regime change of “work(ing) hard to bend international organizations to their worldview (sic).”
At a time when Washington’s only enemies are invented, Blinken falsely claimed that US “national security depends on the strength of our armed forces” — to rape, plunder, and control other nations he left unstated.
A Final Comment
In separate remarks about ongoing JCPOA talks in Vienna, Blinken falsely claimed that “it remains unclear whether Iran is willing and prepared to do what it needs to do to come back into compliance (sic).”
Iran is in full compliance with its JCPOA and other international law obligations.
The Trump regime abandoned the landmark nuclear deal.
Blinken-led Biden regime hardliners refuse to comply with Security Council Res. 2231.
The unanimously affirmed agreement is binding international and US constitutional law under its Supremacy Clause.
Since replacing Trump in January by brazen election rigging, the illegitimate Biden regime refuses to return to the JCPOA in its binding form — wanting unacceptable demands enforced on Iran no responsible governments would accept.
Based on its false remarks, stalling tactics, and Big Lies about an Iranian nuclear threat and hostile actions that don’t exist, Blinken-led Biden regime hardliners appear hell bent on undermining the JCPOA instead of return to the agreement as mandated by international law.
Days earlier, Blinken falsely said “(w)e’re not even at the stage of returning to compliance for compliance.”
“We don’t know if that’s actually going to happen.”
On Monday, Blinken falsely called “Iran’s nuclear program…out of control (sic)” — a bald-faced Big Lie, adding:
“Iran is carrying out activities that would have been worse if it had been a nuclear power (sic).”
Its “nuclear breakout time” was shortened to several weeks (sic).
All of the above Big Lies suggest that Biden regime hardliners have no intention of returning to JCPOA compliance in other than unacceptable revised form to include draconian demands its government won’t tolerate.
In response to Blinken’s hostile remarks, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif tweeted:
“It remains unclear whether @POTUS and @SecBlinken are ready to bury the failed ‘maximum pressure’ policy of Trump and @mikepompeo, and cease using #EconomicTerrorism as bargaining “leverage.”
“Iran is in (full) compliance with the #JCPOA.”
“Just read paragraph 36. Time to change course.”
Based on what’s clear at this time, the Biden regime continues unlawful maximum pressure on Iran.
It shows no intention of changing its predecessor’s war on the Islamic Republic by other means.
If this policy remains unchanged, what’s highly likely, the landmark JCPOA as affirmed in 2015 is doomed.
