Joe Biden 'appears to be going senile' so his VP pick holds extra importance


Sky News host Andrew Bolt says it often seems Joe Biden is "going senile" so who he picks as vice president holds extra importance as he may in fact be picking the real US president if he were to win the election in November. Mr Bolt discussed facets of American politics and the election with former White House staff member Barbara Heineback. Ms Heineback said she didn't think Joe Biden "would have a prayer if he didn't select a woman" as his running mate. 

Iraq snapshot

 Tuesday, August 11, 2020.  Two attacks on military convoys in Iraq (US military says none, Iraqi government admits otherwise), covid continues to terrorize the globe and Joe Biden's got a War Hawk party platform but watch corporate news work overtime to ignore that reality.  

Starting with Iraq where a convoy was attacked.

REUTERS reports:

An explosion near the Jraischan border crossing at the Iraqi-Kuwaiti border on Monday evening targeted a convoy carrying equipment for US forces, three Iraqi security forces told Reuters.

[. . .]

A security source had earlier said that the explosion was caused by an Iraqi Shi'ite Muslim militia targeting a US military base near the crossing by smuggling in an explosive device, and that some staff on the base had been injured, but this was later contradicted by other security sources who said a convoy was attacked, not a base.

REUTERS also notes, "Kuwait and Iraq separately denied an attack took place against a convoy carrying equipment for American forces."  The denials come as the attacks increase to two -- one this morning, one Monday evening.  AL KHALEEJ TODAY notes that, while denying any attack took place, "The US said on Tuesday it will investigate claims of an explosion on the Iraqi-Kuwaiti border that was aimed at a convoy carrying equipment for American forces."  While the US military command continues to play dumb, the Iraqi denial has ceased:  "A blast from a planted explosive device hit a convoy of the U.S.-led coalition near the Taji base north of Baghdad on Tuesday, the Iraqi military said in a statement."

In other violence, Lawk Ghafuri (RUDAW) reports:

An Iraqi police officer from a federal police unit was killed and two civilians were wounded in western Kirkuk province on Monday, in what the Security Media Cell labeled a terror attack.

“Security forces repelled an attack by terrorist elements on the village of Al-Majid in Al-Riyadh district in Kirkuk province,” the statement read. “The attack resulted in death of an officer in the Third Infantry Brigade of the Fifth Division of the Federal Police, and the wounding of two civilians.”

The statement also revealed that the attack wounded a member of Hashd al-Ashairy, the Sunni unit of Iraq’s Shiite majority Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), known in Arabic as Hashd al-Shaabi.

In other news, INTERNATIONAL QURAN NEWS AGENCY notes that Iraq, on Monday, "records highest daily coronavirus infections."  Again.  That's been a near daily headline for weeks now.  As Feng Yasong and Gao Wencheng (XINHUA) note, the pandemic is worldwide, "Global COVID-19 cases reached 20 million on Monday, with more than 730,000 deaths worldwide, according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.  The global case count reached 20,001,019, with a total of 733,897 deaths worldwide as of 2335 GMT, the CSSE data showed. The bleak number of global infections has doubled in less than two months as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage across the world."  XINHUA also notes, "Iraq has so far confirmed 153,599 coronavirus cases in the country amid a surge in new infections.  It also reported 72 fatalities on Monday, raising the death toll to 5,464, while 2,015 patients recovered in the day, bringing the total number of recoveries to 109,790."  At the end of June, Jane Arraf filed a report for NPR:

Jane Arraf: This is a war against the coronavirus, and we've lost the war, a government official tells me. He doesn't want his name used because he's not authorized to speak publicly. It's so difficult getting accurate statistics in Iraq that almost no one believes the official ones. And although on paper there are more than enough intensive care beds in Iraqi hospitals, that's not the reality. Dr. Aizen Marrogi is a former senior medical officer for the U.S. Army and at the U.S. embassy in Iraq.

AIZEN MARROGI: Corruption is No. 1. All the medications get - first, second, third day after they arrive, they disappear. The government pays for a lot of employees that don't exist. They're ghost employees.

ARRAF: He says the health care system lacks proper managers, nursing staff and technical expertise. The crisis is a major test for the country's new prime minister. Mustafa al-Kadhimi took power in May after anti-government protests forced out his predecessor. He's promised to fight corruption and rein in Iran-backed militias. But now he's also grappling with a drop in oil prices and a deepening crisis over the virus.

Iraq can't seem to catch a break.  RUDAW notes:

A large medical warehouse storing medications needed to treat coronavirus in downtown Kirkuk caught fire on Friday. The crucial supplies were destroyed as numbers of new cases rise on a daily basis. 

The fire started place around 6:00 Friday and was extinguished about two hours later. Firefighters had to break through the walls of the building to access the interior. 

The warehouse belonged to Kirkuk’s Great Hospital, one of the main hospitals in the city. It was storing a large amount of medications, but is one of 10 such sites in Kirkuk so the fire may not lead to a major shortage, head of the provincial health directorate Ziyad Khalaf told Rudaw. 

The fire is not thought to have been set on purpose.  Instead, they believe it was an electrical issue.  Iraq's infrastructure continues to crumble as money that could upgrade the infrastructure instead goes into the pockets of various Iraqi politicians.

"The problem is," THE NATIONAL's Mina al-Oraibi observed in a podcast with AL-MONITOR, "the system of corruption that set into the country."  And the possibility of reform as the prime minister insists he wants to carry out?  "The corruption, nepotism, mafia-state that has emerged in the country makes their ability quite limited."  Mina has a clear-eyed view of how things are in Iraq but she also expresses hope and ties that to, among others, the youth of Iraq and their ongoing protests.

The protesters? Since September 30th, they've been protesting.  Nothing has ended the protests -- not covid, not attacks on the protesters, not murder of the protesters.  Iraq's youth -- the bulk of the country is the youth, it's a land of widows and orphans as a result of the never-ending war -- is not backing down in their quest for a better Iraq.  Lawk Ghafuri (RUDAW) reports a new development:

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi received in Baghdad a group of wounded Iraqi protesters from the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah on Monday, during which the official promised to aid those injured in the mass demonstrations that began in October.

“Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi directs the formation of a committee to coordinate between the Prime Minister's office and the wounded protesters to monitor their health conditions,” the Iraqi PM’s media office tweeted on Monday.

Kadhimi “vowed” to provide medical treatment to wounded protesters in a separate tweet, saying they would “transfer some of them for treatment outside Iraq if necessary.” 

“The government is determined to fulfill the demands of the peaceful demonstrators, which are among the priorities of its program,” the office stated in another tweet.

As for the mafia-style corruption . . . 

The interview is in Arabic but the closed caption is in English.  MEMRI notes:

Iraqi journalist Hussein Al-Sheikh said in a July 27, 2020 interview on Al-Ahd TV (Iraq) that Iraq is run by gangs and that his situation is as if someone broke into his house, raped his mother and his sister, stole his money, and told him to remain silent. He said that in light of the assassinations of journalist Ahmed Abdul Samad and researcher Husham Al-Hashimi were killed anyone could be next.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party seems about to put together yet another presidential ticket where at least one of the people on the ticket voted for the Iraq War.  They've never put together a ticket with someone in Congress who voted against the Iraq War but, since the start of the 2003 wave of the never-ending war, the Dem's presidential ticket has always had at least one person who supported and sold the Iraq War.  Joe Biden is expected to be this year's presidential nominee.  He is a War Hawk.  Patrick Martin (WSWS) examines the party platform his people just put together:

The Democratic platform backs a continued US military presence in Iraq “to train our Iraqi partners,” and in Syria to keep up “the offensive against ISIS” while restoring the US alliance with Kurdish forces in Syria that Trump reneged on.

The platform declares “Our commitment to Israel’s security, its qualitative military edge, its right to defend itself” to be “ironclad.” Initially, the platform language referred to the Israeli “occupation” of the West Bank, a term that was removed at Biden’s personal insistence. The draft now merely criticizes “settlement expansion” and “annexation.”

Biden pledges to “close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay,” as Obama pledged in 2008. Twelve years later, the prison still stands and not one of the prisoners has been brought to trial.

On China, the Democratic platform attacks Trump from the right, claiming that his trade war policies have not restored jobs in the United States and pledging to “stand up” to China on its trade practices and alleged theft of intellectual property.

There is also this pledge: “We will underscore our global commitment to freedom of navigation and resist the Chinese military’s intimidation in the South China Sea. Democrats are committed to the Taiwan Relations Act and will continue to support a peaceful resolution of cross-strait issues consistent with the wishes and best interests of the people of Taiwan.”

In his interview with the minority journalists referenced in the first part of this article, Biden answered one foreign policy question. He said that Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods had provoked retaliation that had devastated US manufacturing and agriculture. “We’re going after China in the wrong way,” he declared, saying that a Biden administration would review the tariffs and focus on issues such as protecting intellectual property and opposing Beijing’s restrictions on US businesses operating in the Chinese market.

This morning, the 'public affairs' programs are yet again jaw boning about who Joe Biden might pick as his running mate.  They've done that non-stop since June.  It's cheap and easy journalism.  And it doesn't anger anyone.  It also serves no public purpose.  Examining the party's new platform is a public service, it is news and it does have value.

David Bacon's "The Right To Remain"


David Bacon Fotografias y Historias
Interview with David Bacon
franknews, 6/29/20

This interview with David Bacon, journalist, photographer and author of Illegal People: How Globalization Creates Migration and Criminalizes Immigrants, was conducted and condensed by franknews.

franknews:  Can you start by talking about your background a bit?

I grew up in Oakland. The racial politics of my youth was centered around Black people and white people. Learning about how the imperial and racist history of this country affects African American people, Asian American people, and Latino people and their migration has been a lifelong learning experience for me. I say that because, I want to make sure that it's understood that I'm a learner, a lifelong learner.

In the 1960s, I was involved in supporting the Delano grape strike by the workers in Central Valley. I would stand in front of Safeway and try to convince people not to buy grapes. After a while, I wanted to know more about what was going on with the workers themselves. In the 1970s I convinced a friend of mine, a lawyer for the United Farm Workers Union, to let me volunteer in one of their offices. I began working at the union, on a ridiculous salary of $5 a week, taking statements from workers who were being fired or beaten up because of their union sympathies. Using the skills I learned with the UFW I worked as a union organizer with other unions for about 20 years. As time went by, I became more and more drawn into documenting what I was seeing. So I made the transition to the work that I do now, and have done for the last 30 years, as a writer and a photographer.

I look at the process of migration from the perspective of those who are migrating. I ask: What uproots people and sets the process of migration into motion? What is the experience of traveling as a migrant? What happens to migrants once they reach the place they are going?

franknews:  How does your work with the unions inform your perspective of immigration.

The union was a school for me  - it taught me Spanish, it taught me organizing, it taught me about immigration. I'll never forget how one evening, I was meeting with a group of date orchard workers at the union office. The next day, when I went out to talk to them again, they were being handcuffed and loaded into a green border patrol van. I was just floored by it. I didn't know what to do. I couldn't stop it. I chased the van all the way down to the Imperial Valley, trying to figure out how to help them. It was a very brutal learning experience, certainly more brutal for them than for me, but it also taught me something very important. I realized that this country's immigration policy has a great deal to do with work, and a great deal to do with labor.

I've written a lot about the US immigration process over the years, and I have tried to put an analytical framework around the process. The framework I use is this: people get displaced in their countries of origin due to the penetration of capital from large wealthy industrial countries into developing countries. Those who are uprooted become an important part of the workforce of the countries that displaced them in the first place. It's a singular system. And it is a system that is motivated by producing economic results.

franknews:  What is an example?

Well, there was economic incentive in the process that made Walmart the largest employer in Mexico.

Mexico used to buy corn from small producers in states like Oaxaca to help those communities survive. They would then turn that corn into tortillas, and sell them at state run markets in the cities to help poor people.

That system became illegal under the new rules of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Walmart comes in as the big retailer of tortillas in Mexico, and the tortillas are no longer made from Oaxacan corn, but corn imported from Iowa. What happens to the farmers who were previously supported by Mexico's system? They become migrants. About a third of the agricultural workforce in California is made up of people coming from Oaxaca. The irony is that Oaxaca is the birthplace of domesticated corn -those farmers are coming from towns that gave corn to the world, but they can no longer grow it themselves, so they became migrants.

franknews:  You have worked with migrants for many years. What is the starkest example of change in the migration system that you have seen?

The border has become much more militarized. Largely that is due to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.  

Before '86, if a hot band was playing in Mexicali, undocumented workers working in the Imperial Valley would cross the border, see the show, and go back across the border to sleep in the labor camps that they were living in. In many places, even now, the border consists of nothing. For all of Trump's talk about the border, the reality is that it is still hardly marked at all in some places, but the process of crossing has become much more difficult and deadly, and much more expensive.

franknews:  At the time that you were organizing with unions how did migrants look at immigration?

People generally looked at the United States as a place that they had to come to in order to work. The Bracero Program from 1942 to 1964 was crucial in shaping this dynamic. Hundreds of thousands of people were recruited in Mexico, contracted a short period of time to work in the US, and then sent back to Mexico.

We still have programs that are very much like the Bracero program today, such as the H-2A. People have very conflicting feelings about those programs. On the one hand, people want to come here to work. They know the wages they can get here, and they see the programs as a possible way to get US jobs. On the other hand, people know that those programs do not offer you the ability to stay in the US permanently or the ability to bring your family to the US. It's just work.

At the same time, there are thousands of undocumented migrants in California who live in garages or shacks or even under trees.  People put up with conditions that are sometimes worse than the poverty in the communities they come from, because they need to work and send money home.  Sometimes folks say, "Well, it's just for awhile. I can put up with it for now while I send money home. In a way, it's better for me - if I don't have to pay rent, I can send more money home."
