Saban.Hillary 2

The next American president will almost certainly be bought and paid for by the Israel Lobby. Hillary Clinton has already declared that that when she is elected president she intends to take relations with Israel “to the next level” and has also promised to invite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit on her very first day in office. It is difficult to imagine what the next level might actually be in America’s already servile deference to Israeli interests so she should perhaps be careful regarding what she commits herself to do. Netanyahu just might feel empowered to remain in the Oval Office on his visit, possibly also moving the Knesset to Washington so it will be closer to the U.S. Treasury if Israel’s budget comes up a bit short as well as just across the river from the Pentagon and all those nifty weapons that can be used to kill Palestinian children.

Hillary’s pledge of fealty to Israel took place at a meeting of the Saban Forum, which is an annual dialogue between American and Israeli leaders from across the political and social spectrum, hosted by the Brookings Institute, which also has a Center for Middle East Policy, formerly also named after Saban. The eponymous Saban is Haim Saban an Israeli who has made his billions of dollars in the United States in the television and entertainment industry. His best known brand is the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He is consistently one of the largest donors to the Democratic Party, contributing $10 million in 2001-2, whose stated formula for influencing American politics is to donate to politicians and parties, establish think tanks and control the media message. He has worked hard to do all three on behalf of Israel, to include paying for the Democratic National Committee headquarters in DC.

Saban’s dealings with the Democrats have apparently not inhibited his cooperation with Israel’s intelligence service Mossad. In 2009 Congressman Jane Harman was contacted by an Israeli intelligence “agent” and reportedly agreed to attempt to influence a reduction in the espionage charges in the then ongoing trial of accused American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) spies Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman. In return, Harman’s contact promised to support her bid to become chairman of the House Permanent Committee on Intelligence. The Israeli, who some suspect was Haim Saban himself, indicated that he would pressure House speaker Nancy Pelosi using threats to withhold political contributions from Saban if Harman were not given the position. Harman was later spoken of as a possible candidate to become Director of Central Intelligence and, without the FBI recordings of her phone conversations, which were made known to Pelosi, she might have obtained either position or possibly both in succession.

Saban has also long been associated with the Clintons and he and a tight group of like-minded donors may indeed constitute the most financially significant part of Hillary’s political base. When Bill was president Saban was a regular overnight visitor at the White House. He has pledged to spend “whatever it takes to elect Hillary in 2016 because “the relationship with the US and Israel will be significantly reinforced.” Saban has repeatedly claimed that “I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel.” Hillary and Bill appear to agree and one might even argue that Bill has a soft spot for money coming from Israeli spies, witness his pardoning of fugitive Marc Rich in 2001. So put it all together if you will and if you think that the wag the dog relationship between Washington and Tel Aviv is bad now, just wait because it will be moving “to the next level” if Hillary is elected.

So who is standing up for the interests of the American people? Nobody, apparently. Senator Ted Cruz has no less than 69 press releases on his web site pledging support for Israel. Jeb Bush has pledged to ban the pro-Palestinian Boycott Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement in the U.S. which most people would consider to be free speech. Every Republican candidate also continues to pander directly and personally to Benjamin Netanyahu, including Donald Trump who planned to drop in on Bibi but had to cancel the trip because of the reaction to his comments about Muslims. Trump had also caused somewhat of an uproar by telling a Jewish Republican audience in New York City that they wouldn’t support him because he didn’t need their money. Imagine the cheek of Trump to link Jews with money with buying influence! In any event, Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), determined that Trump’s comments were not anti-Semitism because they had been misinterpreted and I for one am relieved that we have a brave and enlightened organization like the ADL to keep us on our toes when it comes to potential hate speech.

George Washington could not have envisioned the manner in which money has corrupted American politics. Congressmen complain that much of their time is spent fundraising and, in such a system, it is inevitable that the most generous donors are able to position themselves for favors from the political class. Some become Ambassadors even though they are completely unqualified. Others choose to push certain legislative agendas, to include tax breaks and bailouts that enrich them personally.

But now we have something that goes way beyond that in the new breed of mega-rich, colossally wealthy multi-billionaires who are well positioned to use their resources to support a political candidate willing to accept the money and sell out his or her principles to someone advancing the interests of a foreign country. We are now on the verge of having a Manchurian Candidate president.

Last November an organization called the Israel-America Council (IAC), which ostensibly represents expatriate Israeli citizens residing in the United States, hosted an inaugural bash in Washington. Present were Saban and Sheldon Adelson sharing a stage. Adelson, the principal funder of IAC, was born in the United States and lives in Las Vegas but also has a home in Israel and presumably has Israeli citizenship. His wife is Israeli and he has said that he regrets serving in the US Army in World War Two while also expressing a fervent desire to have a son who would serve as an Israeli military sniper. Both Adelson and Saban are essentially Israelis who live in the United States for economic reasons. Scott McConnell has described them as having “maximal loyalties to Israel and minimal ones to the United States.”

Adelson is the Republican version of Saban. He believes that the United States should nuke Iran as a “negotiating tactic,” has an estimated $23.8 billion fortune derived mostly from casinos in Las Vegas and in Asia. He is a Republican funder for those prospective candidates who promote unlimited US support for Israel. He bankrolled Newt Gingrich’s bid for the GOP nomination in 2012 as well as Mitt Romney for a total of $150 million and also contributed $10 million to Republican candidates in the 2014 congressional campaign. Newt Gingrich in return repaid the favor by praising Israel in his foreign policy pronouncements, taking a hard line with Iran and describing the Palestinians as an “invented people.”

Adelson and Saban’s “spirited public discussion” at IAC included a number of zingers that have been widely reported in the alternative media. Saban commented that in the event of a “bad” deal between Washington and Tehran over the latter’s nuclear program (bad as being defined by Israel) Netanyahu “should bomb the living daylights out of the sons of bitches.” Adelson noted that “the purpose of the existence of Palestinians is to destroy Israel” before dismissing the possibility of a democratic state including both Arabs and Jews by responding “So Israel won’t be a democratic state, so what?” He added that democracy was not mentioned in the Torah. The two also joked about combing their resources to buy the New York Times by offering to pay “more than it’s worth” to make its coverage of Israel even more favorable than it already is. Saban added that he had even used “threats” to obtain favorable media reporting about Israel. The seven hundred “Israeli-Americans” in the audience reportedly responded to the conversation with “wild applause.”

Adelson and Saban concluded that “there’s no right or left when it comes to Israel” and the conference Chairman Shawn Evenhaim joked at its conclusion that “After the election in 2016 one of you will get me a private tour of the White House.” The jest was on target. At this point it is almost certain that both Saban and Adelson will become the largest single donors for whoever becomes the GOP and Democratic candidates. That will buy them enormous access, as Hillary Clinton has already demonstrated. Given that reality one has to accept the obvious conclusion that the two Israeli billionaires might well be able to substantially define the relationship between Washington and the Muslim world, to Israel’s benefit.

That Adelson and Saban might think privately that they have become political kingmakers is one thing, but stating as much in a public forum defies belief. They should be recognized for what they really are: agents of a foreign government and there is no reason why the Justice Department should not require them to register as such under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938. Their close and continuing relationships with Israeli government can no doubt be demonstrated, validating the claim and registering as foreign agents would make illegal their funding of American politicians.

And once one starts recognizing foreign advocacy groups for what they are, other organizations like IAC, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) and AIPAC should also be required to register as agents of the Israeli government. And there are many more such organizations, a virtual alphabet soup. Registration would mandate transparency in their funding and end their phony status as educational tax exempt organizations.

It does not require any particular genius to realize that someone living in one country while favoring the interests of another is not a desirable citizen but we retain at least some semblance of freedom of speech and anyone should be able to advocate anything. But it would be nice for a change if our two venerable national parties might for once seize the high ground and act respectably. I would suggest that the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee might consider developing some backbone and combine in issuing a joint statement refusing to take any donations from either Adelson or Saban in the current election cycle. It could remove both considerable influence peddling and Israel itself from the electoral process, which would be a blessing all around. Might it actually happen? Almost certainly not.

  3. I wouldn’t wish to appear as approving of the ‘amigos’ and so consider the open nature of their buying the USA to be chutzpah as opposed to straight up honest about what they’re up to. When considering the influence of John Roberts’ SCOTUS has played in opening American politics to practically unlimited influence buying, it does well to note it would appear on its face it is not only lax enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act has opened the virtually endless vaults to our halls of congress; but the Christian Zionists on the right of the highest bench in DC enabled this (noting the Jewish justices sit on the left or minority opinion in the decision “Citizens United”)

    Then, it recalls John Roberts close buddy Shannen Coffin served as vice presidential counsel to Dick Cheney…

  4. Mega-billionaire crypto-Israelis like Adelson and Sabin (as well as countless, pro-Zionst NGOs) dominate Washington and enjoy extraordinary influence in London, in Paris, in Frankfurt and in Brussels. Additionally, there are politically-active Jewish communities in virtually all of the world’s developed nations. And they stay in touch with one another.

    At the same time, Zionists hold most of the key positions of power in Hollywood as well as throughout America’s news media.

    Wall Street is similarly pro-Israel, with big checks being written for an array of candidates just so long as none deviate from the Zionist script. No deviation is allowed. Even a ‘whiff’ of antisemitism will not be tolerated. Hitler, remember.

    See for yourself: no candidate seeking high US office is hostile to Zionism, even though tiny, recalcitrant Israel consumes a disproportionate amount of Washington’s energy, depletes our treasury, initiates wars, and dominates America’s political landscape. Being pro-Israel is nevertheless Washington’s most essential litmus test. Non-conformity is not an option.

    In fact, any rising pol that exhibits ‘hostility’ to the Israeli-Washington special relationship is preemptively scrubbed before they run for county clerk. It’s part and parcel of what our two political parties do. There will be no exceptions. This political value also permeates mainstream news and entertainment. Hitler, remember.

    This is Israel’s ongoing policy of ‘preemption’ in America. It has been with us for decades. And it is now more entrenched than ever.

    With that in mind, a case can be made that it is Israel–not Washington–that is the world’s foremost superpower.

  6. Bibi lives in your head. The foreign agents law is based upon the agent being paid by a foreign government. Any cursory evaluation of AIPAC would note that they receive support from donors in this country. To challenge that problem we would have to abolish dual citizenship, on the presumption that every Jew is an automatic citizen of Israel.

    What they do is no different than Phil’s pro-Iran sentiment, just with far more money. And if Iran offered Phil a seven figure salary to lobby for them, I’m betting he’d take it. But Iran is under sanctions, so they can’t do that right now.

    You want to see the real problem, look beyond some arrogant PM despised by half of his country.

  8. No Kong, I am not and have never been a advocate for Iran and would not go on their payroll under any circumstances. You confuse demanding basic objectivity in our foreign policy with advocacy. And you are wrong about FARA. This is what the website says: “FARA is a disclosure statute that requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities. Disclosure of the required information facilitates evaluation by the government and the American people of the statements and activities of such persons in light of their function as foreign agents.” They don’t have to be on the payroll. Your link regarding Stanley Fischer is, however, well taken.

  9. This was really sad to read. The US, “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” has become “The Land of the Slave and the Home of the Ass-Kisser”. 99.99% of US citizenry still has no idea whose slaves they are.

    I wanted to ran a little wager against my friends: who is going to win to become POTUS, but 100% said Hitlary. There is only one candidate in the race.

    Things are not much different in UK, France, Italy, Denmark, and so on.

    Amplified by the latest investigative salvo from the perennially credible Seymour Hersh, who reveals that the pernicious policies that are bought are so contrary to U.S. strategic interests, that the military brass has had enough and is actively undermining them:

  11. I’m here to quibble though your articles carry weight with credit. On a relatively trivial matter I am sorry that you undermined your standing as a sage and heavyweight pundit with “the nifty weapons that can be used to kill Palestinian children”.

    Apart from that…. what reason is there to suppose Hillary would stay bought? Especially in a second term?

    On the question of who is a foreign agent who should register you have failed to sew up your case. It is not enough just to quote what is said about the relevant legislation: if you want to be sure and make others sure about its proper interpretation you need to quote the actual statute.

  13. “Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon.”
    (Yoded Yinon)

    The civil war that Israel helped foster fractured Lebanon for a decade and a half. It was Lebanon’s chaotic fragmentation that Yinon cited as the model for the rest of the Arab world.

    “More quietly, Israelis have increasingly argued that the best outcome for Syria’s two-and-a-half-year-old civil war, at least for the moment, is no outcome.
    For Jerusalem, the status quo, horrific as it may be from a humanitarian perspective, seems preferable to either a victory by Mr. Assad’s government and his Iranian backers or a strengthening of rebel groups, increasingly dominated by Sunni jihadis.
    (New York Times 2013)

    The West may become a Global Israel, forever occupying, forever dispossessing, forever bombing, and forever insecure. And the Middle East may become a Global Palestine, forever occupied, forever dispossessed, forever bombed, and forever desperately violent. That is how war is realizing the Israelizing of the world.”

  14. It might take decades; it might take centuries; hell, it might require Martian historians to get a truthful, untainted account….but I feel quite secure in history’s judgment affixing the date of the beginning of the end of Western Civilization at 1948.

  16. Was Trump dis-invited to israel because of his comments about Islam or because he has rejected Democratic and Republican interventionist policy in the Middle East, including stating the obvious that Iraq and Libya have been disasters for all concerned? And Trump supports the Putin/Assad campaign against ISIS, something which is an anathema to Washington pro israel group thinkers on both sides of the aisle. Perhaps Bibi doesn’t want to force his friend Hillary to have to explain to the American people in a debate with the Donald why she has been an advocate of American intervention in Iraq, Libya and Syria.

  18. Mr. Giraldi knows well that as long as America’s corrupt and immoral Christian politicians are at the payroll of Jewish oligarchs – Israel will keep winning – not only politically but also keep robbing US taxpayers of trillions of dollars.

    As for “Iranophobia” is concerned – it’s as much a myth as Antisemitism.

    In September 2015, American vice-president Joe Biden admitted this fact. The only thing that would satisfy (US-Iran nuclear) deal opponents including Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is a regime change that could only come with US power, Biden said during a speech at the Ahavath Achim synagogue in Atlanta.

    No idiots can call Joe Biden an anti-Semite – as both his son-in-law and daughter-in-law are Jewish.

  20. Dear Mr Giraldi,

    It seems there is one candidate, who presents himself as ” not ” a wholly owned subsidiary of the ” Beyond-the-law Billionaires bellowing for even more Belligerence” ……That candidate seems to be Donald Trump.

    Is it a mistake to see” The Donald”, in being wealthy enough to fund his “own” campaign, as being independent enough to speak his “own” mind ?

  21. I read the Hersh article. What is missing (in my estimation) is the taboo subject of the split in the American military officer corps itself; the division between secular and Christian dominion officers. There is ample evidence of this developed by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which has received direct feedback at the general officer level in the command structures explaining any push-back against the hardcore Christians pushing forward their agenda within our military can be a career ending move. So now, you have what? General officers who see the middle east conflict as a crusade and religious duty and general officers who see through a secular geopolitical lens. Until this tension is resolved, I doubt we’re going to see any clear and stable policy. Maybe a clue to the “mystery” Hersh closes with?

    And perhaps it can get even more sticky than that; considering the highly classified circumstance where CIA officers are concurrently American military officers in a career cover…

  23. “He has said he regrets serving in the U.S. Army in World War Two while also expressing a fervent desire to have a son who would serve as an Israeli military sniper”

    I checked Giraldi’s link for the source of this information about Adelson. His source is a pro-Palestinian and viciously anti-Israel website.

    Their source for this information is a dead link.

    I did a Google search for any information in which Adelson expressed any regret for serving his country. Funny, absolutely NOTHING came up besides this pro-Palestinian site that Giraldi gets his information from. (Trust me, I found plenty of negative stuff about Adelson out there).

    I highly doubt that “Electronic Intifada” is the most reliable or objective source of information relating to news about Israel.

    If Giraldi wants to make his living bashing Jews and Israel that’s his right. However, he should be able to responsibly back up the sources of his venom.

    Grimaldi is simply rehashing and regurgitating outright lies. He is lazy and irresponsible.

  24. This article aptly described the carrot that is dangled before American politicians and media figures. But what about the stick? Not just the smearing in the media they can expect if they represent their own country rather than another country (witness the way that Ron Paul was treated). Blackmail. Amdocs was an Israeli company, and its ownership is still, I belive in the hands of those sympathetic to Israel. As the primary telephone biller in the US, Amdocs had the means to cultivate targets for blackmail. Of course, there are many more ways of doing so now. For example, one can wonder exactly who or for what the NSA actually works.

    Our politicians are bought, but they are more than just bought. They are coerced.

    For those who are unaware, there have been several previous attempts to get Israel Lobby groups registered under FARA:

    ZOA ordered to register as Israeli foreign agent seven times – declassified Justice Department files

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The following is being released by Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy:

    The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) was ordered on seven separate occasions to register under the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) according to newly declassified Department of Justice (DOJ) files. On October 17, 2012 the National Archives and Records Administration released under FOIA the long-secret files, now available online at the Israel Lobby Archive.

    ZOA incorporated on April 14, 1920 in New York. DOJ officials determined in 1947 that ZOA was controlled by the World Zionist Organization (WZO), a global entity composed of dues-paying members committed to the Zionist program for a Jewish state in Palestine. ZOA activities, negotiations with governments and NGOs were all subject to WZO approval. ZOA regarded WZO as the ultimate disciplinary and dispute resolution authority. ZOA was also beholden to WZO orders for unspecified “political actions of another kind.”

    In 1956 ZOA Pittsburgh chapter President Zalman Shapiro incorporated the Nuclear Material and Equipment Corporation (NUMEC) which operated a nuclear processing facility on the Apollo Industries steel site. Future ZOA national president Ivan Novick was an original Apollo Industries founder. The FBI investigated excessive NUMEC losses of weapons-grade uranium and Shapiro’s 1960s interactions with Rafael Eitan, an Israeli spymaster who later ran Jonathan Pollard against the United States. NUMEC established a joint venture with the Israel Atomic Energy Commission, later revealed by researcher Avner Cohen to be a front for Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program. A 2001 Energy Department audit found that NUMEC lost more weapons-grade uranium (337 kilograms) than any other facility in U.S. history. Declassified CIA and FBI files reveal US officials believed NUMEC illegally diverted nuclear material to Israel.

    The newly released DOJ files reveal a secret 1948 meeting where the Attorney General promised to exempt ZOA from all FARA registration and prosecutions in exchange for changes to ZOA/WZO governing documents. However reports filed by Justice Department staff responsible for FARA enforcement reveal that even by 1960 the promised changes had not been made. ZOA is currently attempting to regain tax-exempt status revoked by the IRS in 2011.

    The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the nation’s record keeper. It retains 1%-3% of the most important documents of business conducted by the United States Federal government. The Israel Lobby Archive, http://IRmep.org/ila is a unit of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington.

  27. That’s another White Supremacist BS. Trump is financed by his Jewish friend Adelson – something he admitted himself. Do you believe Trump became billionaire without Jewish help? May be you should put that question to supporters of Trump’s anti-Muslim crap like Pat Buchanan and Dr. Kevin MacDonald.

  28. Okay, okay …… you don’t like pro-Palestinian bug – so how about an American Jewish bug – The Washington Post?

    “What are we going to negotiate about? What I would say is, ‘Listen, you see that desert out there? I want to show you something,’” Adelson said at Yeshiva University. “You pick up your cellphone, and you call somewhere in Nebraska, and you say, ‘okay, let it go.’ So there’s an atomic weapon goes over — ballistic missiles — in the middle of the desert that doesn’t hurt a soul.”

    Adelson continued: “Then you say, ‘See? The next one is in the middle of Tehran.’ So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.

    Now, tell me who study Holy Talmud – Adelson or Netanyahu?

    On October 27, 2015, Arthur Topham appeared in a British Columbia court to defend his freedom of speech rights. He is accused by B’nai B’rith of inciting hatred toward Canadian Jewish community (310,000 in country’s population of 35 million). BC province is home to 32,000 Jews.

    Topham is also accused of believing anti-Jewish ‘conspiracy theories’ like The Protocols, 9/11, etc. and re-blogging anti-Israel articles from other websites. If convicted, Topham will spend some time in a jail, in addition to a heavy fine and his website, Radical Press, would be removed from internet – like British vicar Stephen Sizer‘s personal blog 7 months ago.

    Terry Wilson, ex-anti-hate crime squad detective had accused Arthur Topham of quoting anti-Jew statements from Elizabeth Dillings’ book, The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today. While cross-examining, Topham’s defense lawyer asked Wilson if he had read Ms Dillings’ book, he replied that he did. When further questioned that if he had cross-checked the book’s allegations with Talmud, Wilson admitted that he had never read Talmud. However, Wilson lauded Talmud as one of Jews “Holy” books and attempting to convince the Jury that any negative criticism of it was just pure anti-Semitism and hatred (here).

  40. & Mark Green, Dec 22 2015

    Query:

    it is Israel–not Washington–that is the world’s foremost superpower.

    True, in many important aspects. But the question remains–how did it come to it?

    —–
    Response:

    Niccolò Machiavelli
    The Prince, (1532), ch. III

    And on these matters I spoke at Nantes with Rouen, when Valentino, as Cesare Borgia, the son of Pope Alexander, was usually called, occupied the Romagna, and on Cardinal Rouen observing to me that the Italians did not understand war, I replied to him that the French did not understand statecraft, meaning that otherwise they would not have allowed the Church to reach such greatness.

    And in fact it has been seen that the greatness of the Church and of Spain [insert of Israel] in Italy [insert in United States and in Palestine] has been caused by France [insert the United States], and her ruin may be attributed to them.

    From this a general rule is drawn which never or rarely fails: that he who is the cause of another becoming powerful is ruined; because that predominancy has been brought about either by astuteness or else by force, and both are distrusted by him who has been raised to power.

  42. First of all, being that Adelson was 12 years old when WWII ended, I don’t see how he could have possibly served in this war (as Giraldi claims).

    Secondly, at no point does Adelson express “regret” for serving in the U.S. military. He simply says it is “unfortunate” that he never served in the Israeli military.

    Third, as far as wishing that his “son” becomes a sniper for the IDF Adelson simply jokes that maybe someday his young grandchild will join the IDF.

    Adelson’s comments might be stupid or even offensive but Giraldi has taken them wildly out of context.

    Calling America’s corrupt politicians “Christian” is patently ridiculous and you should know better. If they were truly Christian they wouldn’t be doing what they are doing.

    WofP, why do you think I appended (after the FARA section) the newswire story that underlines your point?:

    For those who are unaware, there have been several previous attempts to get Israel Lobby groups registered under FARA [but to no avail]:

  56. It’s more than ‘Israel wins’.
    It is ‘Jews win’. Israel is but a small piece of the Jewish Global Empire.

    Jews want it all. They want the Force. They hate China, Russia, and Iran cuz they remain independent.

    Anyone who favors ideology over identity is a fool. Jews own both ‘ideologies’ in the US cuz they want the power, and this power is really to serve their identity.

    One thing for sure, most of history was not about this -ism or that -ism.

    It was about the ruling elites or radical rebels invoking whatever -ism to seek power.

    Most people are clueless about -isms of all kind.

    The prevailing -ism happens to be whatever is promoted by the ruling elites. It can change if the ruling elites adopt a different ideology or if they are overthrown by radical rebels who become the new elites and use media power to enforce the new prevailing -ism. And most people will go along since they don’t think and don’t want to think. They just wanna believe whatever is told to them and whatever is taught to them in schools. People are sheep, and sheepdom is more effective than ever cuz of mass media, social networking, PC education, and globalism. Look how fast ‘gay marriage’ craze spread among the masses, not least through celebrity worship.

    Oftentimes, when we focus on this-ism or that-ism, we lose sight of those with the power to control which -ism should prevail and how.

    Also, all -isms are at the mercy of those who control it. The same -ism can be very different depending on WHO controls it.
    ‘Capitalism’ can mean lots of things. There is no pure practice of any ‘ism’.
    Jewish democracy in Israel and Turkish democracy in Turkey work very differently even though both are said to be ‘democratic’. What Jews mean by ‘free speech’ is different from what Russians mean by ‘free speech’. In France, badmouthing Jews means jail time. In the UK, free speech doesn’t allow making funny tweets about Mandela. In Russia, free speech doesn’t protect calling Soviet troops of WWII a bunch of drunken rapists(as many 0f them were).

    Communism can come in many flavors. Surely, Trotsky’s communism and Stalin’s communism were at odds. So was Khrushchev’s communism and Mao’s communism. So, who-had-the-power mattered more than the nature of communism. If Mao said communism is pro-Russian and anti-American, it was. If he then said communism is anti-Russian and pro-American, it was the new truth.

    Indeed, when Jews complain that Russia isn’t a ‘liberal democracy’, they really mean that Russia politics isn’t controlled by Jews.

    Suppose Russia were to adopt genuine liberal democracy but suppose the vast majority of voters were to elect a right-wing populist-nationalist government in Russia. Would Jews then be happy with Russia’s liberal democracy? No, of course not. Jews are less interested in ideology than in who gets to control the ideology.

    There is no single liberal democracy, just like there was no single communism or fascism. Indeed, some of the most fanatical and toughest Polish resistance fighters against Nazi fighters were far-right nationalists.

    And some of the toughest anti-Russian forces in current Ukraine are far-right nationalists. But Jews don’t complain about them because those right-wingers are working with globalist Jews. Jews also don’t complain about the anti-liberal Saudis because Saudis are allied with US and Israel. Jews bitch that Putin has been working with people like Assad and the enemies of the US, but US is allied with arch-reactionary nations like Saudi Arabia that kills journalists and has no use for liberal democracy. Actually, Assad is more liberal than the rulers of Saudi Arabia, but Jews who claim to care so much about liberal democracy prefer the Saudis over the secular Assad.

    So, all this stuff about -ism misses the point. It’s really about who has the control.

    When Liberal Democracy was firmly controlled by Wasps in the US, many Jews turned to socialism/Marxism and were against democracy and capitalism. But once Jews took over the American system, they’ve been championing ‘liberal democracy’ while dumping Marxism.

    So, wasp-ruled ‘liberal democracy’ was bad, but Jewish-ruled ‘liberal democracy’ is good.

    When Jews controlled communism, many Jews liked it. But when communism grew independent of Jewish influence, Jews came to hate it. Jews prefer the value of power over the value of any ideology. And even when Jews use ideology, it is to make it serve their power. In contrast, naive dumb white liberals use power to serve an ideology(that is really manipulated by Jews).

    So, Jews were always more about tribal power than about the purity of any ideology.

    And this is why Jews hate fascism. Fascism developed as an adaptive, malleable, and flexible meta-ideology and strategy of power that didn’t fixate on a single ideology. It took ideas from socialism, capitalism, nationalism, imperialism, traditionalism, futurism, modernism, and etc in the service of the Power of the Nation and Race. In a way, fascism is a gentile form of Judaism. Jews have been very adaptive and flexible in using all kinds of ideas and all forms of organization to gain more power and wealth.

    Via fascism, gentiles learned to do the same thing. Jews hate gentiles most when gentiles act most like Jews. Gentiles who act like Jews have learned the secret of power from the Jews. Don’t fixate on any ideology. Fixate on your race and nation and then use whatever ideas that are useful to further your own interest. Paradoxically, Jews hate gentiles who think and strategize most like Jews. Jews want others to fixate on ideologies while they themselves fixate on the power. Jews want others to use their power to serve an ideology(shaped and molded by Jews) while Jews always use ideologies to serve their power.

    Fascism wasn’t anti-ideological but it wasn’t subservient to any single idea. Ideas were subservient to identity, race, and vision.

    It’s like the ultimate obsession in STAR WARS is the Force. It is not ‘equality’, ‘diversity’, ‘progress’, ‘tradition’, ‘tolerance’, ‘free enterprise’, ‘individualism’, etc. It is the Force. Force can come in the shape of anything but it is always more than any one ideology, any single viewpoint, any single cause.

    The Force is a fascist idea because it cannot be explained with a single ideology, viewpoint, or philosophy. It has a light side, a dark side, and so many facets. The thing is to have it. You can do good with it or do bad with it. But unless you have it, you aint got shit.

    It looks like with the new Star Wars, Jews finalized what they’ve been working toward for a long time. They’ve come to own the fascist aesthetics as their own. FF Abrams looks like Sergei Eisenstein and uses images like Riefenstahl.

    Lucas is a political Lib but he was obsessed with fascist-Nazi imagery and modern rightist mythology. The idea behind Star Wars is very ‘modern rightist’ with its immersion in the Irrational, sacred, and mystical. In the 20th century, the Left was into rationalism and materialism. The modern Right was into romanticism, spiritualism, the power of the irrational, etc. Himmler was into the Occult. Hitler drew inspiration from Wagner and partly from Nietzsche. Americans in WWII were about democracy and industry. Japanese were into Shinto, Bushido, vision of Japan as a sacred land, identity of Japanese as part of a sacred race. Americans believed in the might of arms. Japanese hung their hope on the spirit world: kamikaze and pure faith of warriors.

    The Left was supposed to have simple rational and material answers for everything. In the realm of science and medicine, materialism and rationalism won. But in the realm of art and culture, the appeal of the romantic, occult, mysterious, magnificent, and magical was undeniable. It couldn’t be suppressed. But such themes were associated with the Nazis and the style of fascist narcissism, and Jews were nervous about playing with them.

    But the success of STAR WARS showed that this stuff was appealing to many many many people all over the globe. It wasn’t just somewhat successful but the making of the biggest movie hit of all time.

    Jews tried to suppress this kind of aesthetic initially, but it was too bankable, too profitable. So, they decided to appropriate fascist imagery and themes but ostensibly in the name of fighting fascism.

    So, the new SW is very multi-culti. But if we look at the nature of its struggle for power, it’s really about multi-culti fascism vs mono-racial fascism. It is about micro-fascism vs macro-fascism. The good guys are obsessed about the Force, the power of the occult, the themes of unity and sacrifice, the need for iron discipline and warrior honor, the heroic ideal. The female hero is like the heroine of many Riefenstahl mountain-climbing movies.

    Susan Sontag was right to note that fascist themes are not exclusively intrinsic to Nazism or Europeans. its themes can be found or imposed on any people. For example, Riefenstahl’s celebration of warrior culture among the Nuba of Africa was in keeping with her cult of the health and virility in her Nazi films. (Where Sontag was completely wrong was in assuming that the fascist aesthetics was totally out of fashion and gone for good. During the early 70s of New Hollywood defined by Altman, Scorsese, and others, it really did seem as though there was no more appeal to fascist grandeur in the arts. But her kind was totally blindsided by STAR WARS and how it would popularize fascist aesthetics.)

    http://www.nybooks.com/articles/1975/02/06/fascinating-fascism/

    ftp://ftp.uic.edu/pub/library/scua/Journal%20of%20Historical%20Biography/2009.05.01.JHB.pdf

    Jews want to own fascist aesthetics cuz it’s so bankable and profitable, so appealing to people around the world. But Jews also know that such aesthetic has long been associated with anti-Jewish Nazis and the far-right Europeans.

    So, what the new SW does is to give fascist aesthetics a ‘progressive multi-culti’ sheen.

    It’s like the fascist robot Terminator was reprogrammed to be ‘good’ and ‘progressive’ in part 2. But he was still the badass Aryan robot warrior.

    Likewise, the new SW keeps with all the fascist themes of heroism and superiority and irrational cult of holiness. After all, the very notion of the Jedis is exclusive and hierarchical, and the very idea of the Force is Nietzschean-Jungean.

    It is not about equality or tolerance but about a special elect with special superior powers. It is like the samurai, or the Nazi SS.

    So, how can this fascist idea be made palatable? By making the story ‘interracist’ and ‘feminist’.

    But it is ultimately about feminist fascism. it is not about a girl fighting for equality for all women but gaining super power to be superior to everyone else. And it is about a Negro going from a storm-trooper(who was equal with other storm troopers) to a holy warrior imbued with special superior powers. It is about both of them gaining superiority over the rest. So, as they will surely mate and have a mulatto child(as the new Obama-like savior of the universe), it is not about equality but about interracism as the new form of supremacism. The mulatto Jedi kid of their union will be regarded as SUPERIOR because his parents are this SUPERIOR white girl and this SUPERIOR Negro.

    This way, the Jews came to own fascist themes and aesthetics. They appropriated elements of Fascism and National Socialism to serve the agenda of globalist Jews(who, of course, are Jewish supremacists who believe that Jews as the Chosen and Elect should rule the world).

  57. This is what I mean when I talk about sleazy South Asian tendencies.

    The show Duck Dynasty morphed an upper middle class conservative Southern white family into rougher and more earthy “rednecks.” All the way to the bank.

    To which one of his worshipers responded:

    Keen observation about Duck Dynasty

    An essentially useless comment, to which I responded:

    That wasn’t his.

    Because it wasn’t. I read it in some MSM rag more than a year ago (in the form of an “expose”). Somehow the useless, fawning comment is germane, and lives up to Razib’s rigorous intellectual standards, but pointing out that the “keen observation” wasn’t Razib’s is what JayMan might refer to as “uninformed criticism.” So, Razib deleted it.

    White people are embarrassed by this kind of thing (censoring someone on a “free speech” site for accurately deflating unearned praise is gauche). South Asians seem to lack that gene.

  59. The uniform I wore in the military unfortunately was not an Israeli uniform, it was an American uniform

    Secondly, at no point does Adelson express “regret” for serving in the U.S. military. He simply says it is “unfortunate” that he never served in the Israeli military.

    Nobody forces Jews to do this – tell obvious lies that make them look bad.

  62. Reading these comments, I wonder: why are you guys so obsessed with Jews ? True, they are over-represented in many areas of US socio-economic & cultural life, but they don’t “own” the US. Nobody does that.

    1. the text about Adelson and Saban has just been copy-pasted in a new article. Why ?

    2. why do you think that Trump would be a puppet to Israel ? No US president has been so far. Trump is an American nationalist & Netanyahu is on the same wave-length (himself being, like Trump is, a race realist & a nationalist)- and that’s all. Trump was booed by American Jews when he told them explicitly that he wouldn’t recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

    3. whatever I- and you- may think of Obama, it is evident he is not an Israeli puppet. Iran deal was a clear defeat not only for Netanyahu, but also for hawkish Jews anywhere on the globe.

    The real problem with most writers & commentators here is that you conflate two groups, leftist liberals & Jews, and on top of that, you equate the decadent phase of Western civilization with imagined malign influence of “Jews”.

    Jews are not that important nor influential nor malign….. This obsession is unhealthy.

  69. a puppet to Israel ? No US president has been so far.

    ever heard of George W. Bush?

    ever heard of a war on Iraq?

    ever heard of Obama’s war on Syria?

    how many billions do we send to Israel every year?

    how has our special relationship with Israel benifited the American people?

    we go to endless wars and our young people come back in bags or worse. We slaughter innocents and destroy entire countries and create refugees by the millions upon millions. We facilitate the daily humiliations and use of Palestinians as walking organ storage units for Israelis so that if they need a kidney, they just shoot a teenager and remove it. They buy and sell smuggled Eastern European young women who’ve been raped and drugged like chattel on the block to pimps who treat them worse than animals.
    They steal other people’s land, like the Golan Heights and settlement in the West Bank and generally act like monsters to their victims who’re at their mercy. And we’re forced to fund all of that because of Jewish influence on our politics. Jews own our media and they own Hollywood and they produce movies that relentlessly promote degeneracy.

    There are a lot of things that Jews are doing that are objectionable. Is it misguided to point that out?

    Is it misguided to point out the incident of the USS Liberty and 911 and the treachery behind those singular events?

    What about Wall Street and the Fed and how between Goldman Sachs and the Federal Reserve Bank and the US Treasury there’s an obvious incestuous gang of super thieves looting this country dry? Is that something we should all carefully use our blinders to avoid seeing, or certainly mentioning?

    Many Jews are extraordinary people and have done extraordinary things. Some of them good. Jonas Salk for instance. But some of them very, very bad. Jonathon Pollard for instance.

    The reason Jews are often singled out for comment is because their collective influence on our countries and culture and societies often times is notable.

  72. The Iraq & Afghan wars were fought on multiple levels, and Israeli component was just one among many others (more important included Haliburton and British Petroleum); Obama’s “war on Syria” has more to do with the blockade of Russian Fleet in Syrian ports & is simply a mess many hubristic politicians wade off into frequently; most money sent to Israel is from military-industrial complex that wants to sell even more military equipment to rich Arab Gulf countries- no Israeli lobby is as strong as are US military equipment producers; “special relations” are not that special. Real special relations are with those countries belonging to the Anglosphere (five eyes), where Israel is still not permitted to enter.

    Most of the rest is just an unsubstantiated rant, peppered with gory Frankenstein details I’m well acquainted with from Serbian propaganda during 1990s.

Offcurse it’s not ” the jews”, these are a small number of very rich people of jewish religion who work, and thats quite sure, in the interest of the israeli Government. But I can understand less educated people, especialy here in Germany and belief you me thats the majority here, that they get proven right in there opinion by pointing at exactly people like those mentioned in the article. By doing , what they probably thinking it’s service for Israel, the do in reality a very bad job for there country.

    Have you ever heard of the Golan Heights?

    Do you know who’s drilling for oil there right now?

    But is it their land?

    So yes, it does have to do with oil and weapons too! And there are other actors involved, not just Israel. But to pretend that Israel wields negligible influence on American foreign policy especially as regards the wars on Iraq and Syria is disingenuous, to say the least.

    Have you ever heard of the neocons Bardon?

    do you know who Pearl and Wolfowitz are? How about Netanyahu, have you heard of him?

    Do you know that Netanyahoo had the nads to lecture our president from the podium of the capital in front of an obsequious congress, and demand that they do more to foment war with Iran?

    How’s that for chutzpah, eh?

  77. Yes but…. It also reflects if only incidentally the fact that the Israel firsters are by no means a majority of US Jews. Mind you I don’t know where the small sample of American Jews I met earlier this year in Israel (my first visit) would stand. I expect they would confound most of the vigorous oversimplifying generalisations found on this blog. What, for example, to expect of one from the NE who accepted “Jewish atheist” as a description of himself when I mentioned Bertrand Russell’s writing of the difference between Protestant and Catholic atheists and asked him if he was a Jewish atheist. Also he was totally laid back about two non-observant daughters married to (presumably lapsed) Catholics. My own Jewish inlaws in the UK are highly critical of Israel without being fashionable London lefties.

But, as well as your question mark, I have trouble knowing what you are trying to say when I offered my gentle tease with possible element of truth that some of the moderators’ habits complained of may be just the human failing of not being able to find 36 vigorous hours of activity in a day.

  83. I’m disappointed. I would have hoped my gentle jest (a jest, but also pointing to something worth saying to those who hadn’t put themselves in the shoes of busy moderators whom they criticise) deserved a more sophisticated and civilised response. When I am accused with more or less justice and more or less courtesy of talking too much I try to respond with something that has at least the tone of “But surely you will be pleased to know that I have enough breath left for another hour without paragraph breaks”. As I have reason to know about PR and those that employ it I could proffer advice but let it go at suggesting that there is little point in crudity.

    As you weren’t bothered with any subtleties or precision I don’t suppose you chose the words “troll by consensus” much thought but I would be intrigued to know what you intended to convey. Surely RTW isn’t deciding to form a view about me because of a handful of highly inconsistent blog statements have accused me of being some kind of troll, especially as that small handful aren’t really in your camp. But equally it is hard to believe he has paid serious attention to my output and concluded that it is itself a consensus view of a gang of trolls.

  85. Will you get a load of this? I know Trump is a joker, and a great nation deserves someone better than the likes of him, but what kills me is the notion among some Americans that they are still living in a dignified nation and that the likes of him are just too low and vulgar for national pride. Hardy harhar.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/dec/22/half-us-voters-would-be-embarrassed-have-donald-tr/

    Americans embarrassed? Really? Americans are still capable of feeling shame?

    After Clinton the pimp, Bush the moron, and Obama the sleazebag, Americans have any pride left? They still have any dignity left to feel outraged? Really? A nation that makes ‘gay marriage’ law of the land still has pride left? A nation where the president praises a man, Bruce Jenner, for putting on a dress and getting a boob job still has pride left? A nation where people like Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor are appointed to the Supreme Court still has pride left? Come on. US has no pride left. Trump or no Trump, US should be embarrassed of itself.

    Only a moron nation has rap music as its national culture. Only a moron nation makes STAR WARS over and over to fool and milk the dummies. Only a moron nation promotes someone like Miley Cyrus as role model for kids. Only a moron nation has a foreign policy that totally messes up the Middle East. Only a moron nation shuts down entire cities to have massive homo pride parades. Only a moron nation restarts the Cold War because globalist Jewish elites don’t like Russia’s ban on ‘gay’ pride parades.
    Only a moron nation has most Conservatives getting their news from talk radio and Fox news. Only a moron has most Liberals getting their news from the likes of Jon Stewart(now replaced by some glib Jewgro from South Africa) and Stephen Colbert.
    Only a moron nation destroys businesses cuz they won’t bend over to the homo agenda. Only a moron nation has University presidents and deans fired because of loud black thugs, bitchy homos and trannies, and deranged feminists.

    This is a nation where Rolling Stone magazine, the rag of young dolts everywhere, gave us the UVA rape hoax story and still refused to fire that lowlife rotten hag bitch Sabrina Rubin Erderly.

    I think part of Trump’s appeal is as a scapegoat. Americans without dignity, culture, and pride look at him as the ‘crazy guy’ & ‘clown’, and by denouncing him they make themselves feel more intelligent, sane, and dignified than they really are.
    It’s how morality works on sensational talk shows. You bring on some ‘crazy personality’ and the audience members smugly and glibly feel sane and superior because the guy on stage seems so ‘beyond the pale’.

    Prissy, my dear child, my naughty daughter with a potty mouth. I have changed my mind about just about everything regarding the ladies, the loopy ladies. Nothing is ever Enough, nothing is good enough for the Princess. Blemish is the game, one little blemish and NO!

    Now what every princess (or the occasional prince) needs to know is that throwing tantrums, particularly those with Big Words in them, only signals people that , in this case, they got a spoiled child in their midst who needs a time out, or even standing in the corner, which seems to have gone out of fashion, but always worked for me, although i rarely got it, because it communicates very well that one has hit the wall, usually of one’s narcissism, pride, and insolence to just about everybody.

    Nothing is good enough. All or Nothing…that is the female negotiating position. Sort of like Hillary, the Bitch of all bitches in the national memory. Even now despised by a large portion of females themselves.

    Trump is the Only persona we got, and you trash him cuz he plays the game to some degree to get elected. You cannot wait until he is elected ….you are really an amateur tyrnant, the worst kind, because a successful tyrant at least negotiates with his tribe and supporters, and of course dissembles to his Enemies.

    No, a patriotic American who is proud of his service in the US army would not say ““The uniform I wore in the military unfortunately was not an Israeli uniform, it was an American uniform………..”. The sole mention of his service in American arms was as an “unfortunate” contrast to what he (said) he really would have liked to have done. It was implicitly derogatory.

  90. Generally, politicians don’t get “bought” by donors, in the sense of getting bribed to advocate a certain policy. What usually happens instead is that donors give money to politicians who already agree with their policy priorities.

    If you doubt that, answer this question: when’s the last time a wealthy pro-life donor has bought off a formerly pro-choice Democrat? Or consider this thought experiment: how much money would you have to donate to Hillary to make her become pro life?

  94. At least the oligarchs are out in the open about their intentions so no one is under the impression that their vote matters. The only hope I have now concerning foreign policy is that the US military will not go for something completely stupid. If Seymour Hersh and Chalmers Johnson are right then the US military has its limits (war with Iran/supporting Salafi Jihadist). That will be the only check on the next president’s psychopathy. Hillary is unapologetic concerning the evil she has done. She might very well fulfill all of Saban’s desires if she is unopposed.

  96. Reasonable premises all, having grown up through the military and commercial side of Military Industrial in the DC area, I concur all. No one is stronger than defense contractors and security/Intel types. They get the toys and strategies they request without fail it seems. It’s a parallel government, governed by no one and if you aren’t inside, you are most assuredly are not invited. I feel that the Bushes, Obamas, Clintons and Reagans of the White House are other-ruled in many items of the duties of Executive Branch.

    And so I ask Bardon, having read Brzezinski, Kissinger and Engdahl, when you look out over the foreign landscape, are we screwed, or do we always prevail? And especially, within our own borders, how do you see it all coming out, say, 50 years out? Brzezinski and Kissinger have woven themselves into and out of the very top for many decades now, I have my opinions on them, but whatever you think of them, when they talk, you must listen. All these years, they always seem to have the ear of folks that have a rather large say in “things”.

    will ?

    there are a lot of people who look back on WWII with horror

    Sixty million Russians, Germans, Poles, Ukrainians, British, Americans and others were horrifically burned alive or ripped apart by lead and shrapnel, or raped and/or tortured or starved to death in that orgy of Satanic slaughter that engulfed much of Europe and Russia and left it reduced to smoking ashes.

    Then there are also a lot of people who contemplate all of that and believe it was a good start, but it has to get finished!

    as long as there are Germans who are happy and Russians who are strong and British who are out ridding or playing cricket, there will be some whose souls are twisted into tormented wraiths. Agonizing at the sounds of laughter and the sight of ruddy cheeked youth.

    For them these minor skirmishes that only get a few millions ground up here and there is foreplay. They can mollify their angst by droning a wedding here and there or blowing up a commercial jet in the sky, but it only puts salve on their soul-wounds – but does nothing to sate that eternal imperative surging in their veins.

    The followers of Leo Strauss understand that to make an omelet, you have to break some eggs. And the omelet they have in mind is something from Moloch’s abyss.

    So if you think the wars in the Middle East are something, wait until that gorgon gets in there and tells her newly confirmed State Dept. that job number one is to “get Putin”. No matter the costs or consequences.

    Then we’ll see some carnage like you’ve never dreamed of

    And she’s just the vicious hag to see it though, believe me ; )

    Rurik, your comment about Strauss reminded of an exchange I had with another Unz commenter, a couple of years ago:

    other commenter: I’ve been thinking for a while that the US has been hijacked by people who are sophist in the mold of Thrasymachus and Callicles who rejected conventional morality.”

    geokat62: You’re one of the few who understands the philosophical roots of the neocon ideology. The father of neoconservatism is Leo Strauss who looked to the ancients, especially Plato and his concept of the Noble Lie, for inspiration. The fundamental tenet of this ideology is that “there is no rational foundation for morality… It’s all about benefiting others and oneself; there is no objective reason for doing so, only rewards and punishments in this life.”

    Here’s an excellent interview about Strauss – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article5010.htm

    why do you think they picked her?

    they picked her because she is damaged goods and they picked her when she was damaged goods. They — you know who They are — saw the right combination of simmering ambition and seething humiliation and offered her the realization of a revenge fantasy served up from a bottomless bowl. It’s about the money, but it’s so much more than the money.

    Hillary is the prime example of the banality of evil.

    Same goes for Congress — it’s money, but more than money. The Straussians know how to make their Mark part of the “in-crowd;” when you’re on-board the Straussian-zionist train, you are In. You have Power, baby.

    Speaking of the banality of evil — what troubles me most is how our young people have been turned into agents to work out the genocidal rage of the Straussians: the brightest of our young engineers are seduced to work for their spy organizations. The best of our young historians will NOT see an acceptance letter from a publisher, nor from one of the formerly fine universities that old-line Americans built with their hard-earned dollars and ideals, unless they megaphone the Straussian narrative. America’s own young people are turned against it in their idealistic quest to be part of the nation, and their psychological need to compete and achieve.

  104. It is, of course, impossible to predict anything on that level. But, looking from our vantage point, I would say that the most important thing is to win a war on ideas, the culture war demonizing Euro-Americans & their identity and heritage. The affirmation of the American nation as basically white, or having roots in broader Western culture ( Greco-Roman heritage; Enlightenment & Rationalism; mostly Christian and, perhaps, post-Christian spiritual culture & official American English language) would end in a “browner” US, but still a recognizable historical country.

    If not, the US will become a mega-Brazil (not South Africa) with nukes and, eventually, fall apart into a few ethno- states. Other scenarios are possible, of course, but neo-liberal imperialism cannot last. History has taught us something Pat Buchanan has aptly summarized: “Race matters. Ethnicity matters. History matters. Faith matters. Nationality matters. While they are not everything, they are not nothing. Multiculturalism be damned, this is what history teaches us.”

  108. Sovereignty or Suzerainty?

    That is the question of the 21st century for most nations around the world.

    The Jewish-controlled US will not tolerate the sovereignty of any nation.

    If it says ‘someone must go’, that someone must go. Jews say Assad must go. (But the thug Netanyahu can go on taking land from Palestinians and killing Arabs. And demanding billions more from the US.)

    The real crime of Syria is that it’s been a sovereign state allied with nations like Russia and Iran, both hated by Jews. Its sovereignty will not be tolerated.

    To break the hold the Zio-globalist Suzerainty all over the world, white gentiles must first emerge from Jewish elite domination. Jewish power is enabled by white gentile collaboration. Indeed, if white gentiles were to overthrow the Jewish yoke, Jews would not be able to cause so much trouble and suffering all over the world via finance capitalism, military interventions, subversion, cultural degeneration, and etc.

    But why is Jewish domination to difficult to break?

    1. Jews control the media and can destroy anyone’s reputation in a sec.

    2. Jews control finance and can destroy anyone’s wealth in a sec.

    3. Jews control the academia and mold elite minds of gentiles.

    4. Jews use Holocaust guilt to mute any criticism of Jewish power.

    5. Jews ally with people-of-color(ennobled by the Narrative as the perennial victims of white ‘racism’ and ‘imperialism’) and play on ‘white guilt’ to prevent the emergence of any white power movement. For white power movement to emerge, whites must feel victimized, wronged, dispossessed, and oppressed, thus justified in their demand for power.
    And many whites are beginning to feel this way under the power of Jewish-global-domination. Jews fear this, so they buy off elite whites as comprador-collaborators and vilify angry middle class/working class/poor whites as deranged, ‘racist’, ‘xenophobic’, and etc.

    This is why Jews need diversity to play on white guilt. Suppose there were only whites and Jews in a nation and suppose whites were to notice that Jews have great power and privilege over them. Despite the Holocaust cult, whites will eventually come to see Jews as the ruling elites. White Guilt will gradually ebb away as it becomes ever more apparent to whites that Jews rule over them and that Jewish power must be challenged.
    So, in order to play on ‘white guilt’ in regards to ‘white privilege’, it is helpful to Jews to have a big population that is poorer than whites. That way, Jews can badger whites and say, “Look at those unfortunate blacks and browns. They are poorer and worse off than you whites, so that must mean you whites have white privilege over them.” Thus, as whites are made to feel ‘guilty’ for having more than blacks and browns, the fact that Jews have more than whites is pushed to the back while Jews encourage blacks to scream BLM.

    In a world of only Jews and whites, it would become obvious to whites that their sovereignty has been taken away as they live under a state of suzerainty under the Jewish elites. So naturally, the masses of whites will look upon Jews as the rulers whose power should be challenged.

    In order for Jews to keep their suzerain power over whites, they must convince whites that they, the whites, got all the power in the world and are ruling over everyone else. Thus, whites are distracted from demanding their own sovereignty(independent of Jewish power) and instead made to obsess about their ‘white guilt’ and ‘white privilege’ over blacks and browns, to whom so much is owed.

  109. Dear Mr Giraldi,

    Has anyone taken the time to ask any of the extremely wealthy patrons of Israel who are bankrolling their American President of choice, whether they have a “peace plan”. ?

    Do any purport to actually having a plan for resolving the conflict that does not involve, war, occupation, land grabbing, and the expulsion and/or extermination of Palestinians?

    Does Mr Netanyahu, as a leader, have a “plan” for peace ?

    Does Israel, as a nation, have a plan for peace ?

    Is there currently a ten point” peace plan”…. somewhere…… sponsored by the Israeli government,that shows specific resolutions to all the outstanding issues within the conflict ?

    If there is , I would like to see it.

    I am well aware of the entire international communities requirements for peace as spelled out most succinctly in U.N.S.C. resolutions 242 and 338

    I am well aware of the 2002 Arab peace plan…which conforms wholly with the U.N.S.C. mandates.

    I am well aware that the Palestinians have accepted nearly all ,if not all ,the Security Council resolutions, as well as those enumerated within the Arab peace initiative.

    But where is Israel ?

    Has Israel articulated to anyone, anywhere ” their” peace plan ?

    Mr Giraldi,……. I need to ask you this, in complete honesty….

    If” you” are the guy who has “No” plan for peace….how can the “other guy” be the terrorist ?

    If “you ” are the guy who wants “war”….and the other guy has “accepted” all the peaceful resolutions to the conflict…..how is it “he” can be the terrorist…and “not” you?

    I need to understand how it is possible that this may be so.

    Do you know?

    Obviously a Senator Rockefeller is prima facie not owned/leashed and maybe there are other names that come to mind from recent decades but for those in serious need of money and of there being no well financed opponent even or especially in the primaries how does it work?

  112. Good question(s) but I think there are two possible lines of argument that negate your premise to some extent. One is that Israel would say that it is all too complicated to have a single credible peace plan. There are so many avowed enemies who want the destruction of Israel that there is no choice but to be nimble, flexible, strong, adaptable and opportunistic in the realistic expectation that peace in the sense enjoyed by most countries outside the ME is unlikely. The other (and no doubt there are others) is that they take the Daniel Pipes realist view that there will only be peace when the Palestinians are defeated and recognise that they are defeated. There is obviously much more to say but gotta run.

  120. You are saying I think that Israel needs to be seen by the big players in the world to have a peace plan if it is not to be regarded as a pariah that, in the end, cannot count on support for its survival if any hostile power in the ME becomes powerful enough to defeat it.

    Or are you just saying that morally Israel ought to be putting forward proposals for a peace agreement in good faith (that is not one that is designed to fail) even if it is vanishingly unlikely that all the necessary parties will accept? Who btw do you think are the necessary parties?

  122. {If the Holocaust of Jews in Nazi Germany was an abomination…which it was…how can the holocaust of Palestine …today…be no less so ?}

    How are the war crimes committed by the State of Israel against Palestinians remotely comparable to the Holocaust ?
    What the heck are you talking about ?
    Nazis systematically murdered 6 million (or so) Jews in an industrial scale, meticulously organized program.
    (amongst millions of other Untermenschen, e.g. Slavs)
    Jews came close to being wiped out from the face of the Earth.
    How may Palestinians has the state of Israel killed and murdered since its founding?
    25,000 ?
    30,000 max ?
    The population of the Palestinian Territories (W. Bank and Gaza) is about 4.5 million.
    In 1970 it was about 1 million.
    Population of both has been growing handsomely.
    Yes: from 1970 to 2015 population of PT grew from 1 million to 4.5 million.
    What holocaust are you talking about.

    Apartheid practices by Israel ? Yes.
    Atrocities ? Yes.
    Land theft ? Yes.
    Murder ? Yes.
    Ethnic cleansing ? Yes.
    War crimes ? Yes.

    Holocaust ? Give me a break.

  124. “are you seriously trying to attribute everything the western civilization has accomplished to christian faith? not despite of it?”

    Yes – I am saying that despite the priests and preachers and their exclusion and inclusion hate games – that Christianity has been a big plus for humanity.

    That plus comes in the form of the volitional Western Christian philosophy for living. This philosophy has little to do with God – it is a prescription for free living. It takes the form of a set of ideals to live by – it says – live with hope, respect life, seek the truth, forgive, love your neighbor as you love yourself, regardless of who your neighbor is. Aren’t those the ideals that drive Western culture?

    No one is perfect, but if we work towards these ideals 80% of the time – 80% of the time things will work out. The world does not need perfect, it needs better. Living out ideals does that.

    Have there been major failures – of course – tribal waring still churns our souls. But in the private world (the non-state world) Western life is steadily improving. As the state gains more power over its private citizens, things turn the other way. Force will never ever bring a better world.

Why the hell would we need it now? the last few hundred years? in 2016 no less? are you saying you need the stupid bible to tell you not to kill or steal? If so, then we have a bigger problem on our hands as a min of 40% of the american population identified with your beliefs.

    it will soon be 2016. if you need the bible to lead your life, you might as well just end your self. If the entire western civilization truly depends the bible and adheres to it, what the hell have we been doing the last 25 years in the middle east?

  126. Hi Avery,

    Israel has no peace plan, none that I have seen, but if you know of one, please oblige me.

    Israel has made no indications to anyone that it plans to recognize Palestine at all,ever.

    The last leader who seemed to be genuine about recognizing Palestine,Yitzhak Rabin, was exterminated by a Jewish terrorist for suggesting it.

    Rather It seems Israel is very interested in consuming” all” the Palestinian territories, and using as much of the land and resources it can for itself.

    It seems Israel wants to reclaim all of “Judea and Samaria” as part of its greater nation state, in the process remaindering Palestine to the dust bin of history.

    In subsuming all the territory from river to the sea, Israel will exterminate Palestine as an viable national entity.

    That, Mr Avery, can only be defined as the Holocaust of Palestine.

    How would you define it? Liquidate? erase? disintegrate ? eradicate?

    I think Israel will deal with the “demographic threat of a potential Palestinian majority within a democratic “Greater Israel” through expulsion and extermination. I think Israel will try to have Jordan and Egypt absorb massive numbers of Palestinians, to perhaps minimize the amount of extermination that is required for a substantive Jewish majority in the newly expanded “greater Israel”.

    I think Israel is doing everything in its power to initiate a new Intifada, right now, as a pretext to exterminate Palestinians in massive numbers.

    I think Israel would like to Initiate a world war between the United States and Iran within the next decade, and use that as a pretext to exterminate Palestinians in massive numbers.

    I think Israel has a thirty year time horizon for the completion of the holocaust of Palestine, it may take longer, I cannot be sure.

    If you feel I am wrong about this,please illuminate me as to what plans Israel has for Palestine, or for that matter what plans Israel has for Peace.

    At the moment, I see none.

    Well as long as they’re only guilty of a few little peccadilloes like apartheid, atrocities, land theft, murder, ethnic cleansing and war crimes that’s OK then. Such minor blemishes are hardly worth mentioning.

  128. Yiddish is spelled with Hebrew letters. In Hebrew the consonant “Pey” is pronounced P or F pending on where it is located in the written word.

    To transcribe the German “Pferd” as Pey, Phey, Ayin, Reysh, Dalet goes against the spirit of Hebrew..

    To have two Pey one after another at the beginning of a word? Nah!

    An Ivrit speaker, may read your spelling of Horse as Perd not Ferd.

  132. Doesn’t the word Holocaust mean Burnt Offering? Hasn’t white phosphorous been used on civilians in Gaza? Pretty nasty burns there. The 25 – 30 thousand numbers you toss out like it’s insignificant but they are people too. No doubt the numbers differ but the morality?

    On the subject of numbers, somewhere between 50 and 60 million people were killed in WWII, many of them innocents. It was a tragedy in every sense but why does the number 6 million keep coming up and rarely the number 60 million?

    There are other similarities too… collective punishments for one. Just wrong!

    One could make the argument that the term Chosen People isn’t very far adrift from Master Race.

    I don’t think opinion towards Jews in general is helped when people defend the indefensible when it comes to Israel.

  133. Thanks I love it. Cheerful in the spirit of a Merry Christmas:)

    On words… My south slav bookkeeper was complaining about the time wasted in writing Happy New Year after Merry Christmas so I explained that there was an old-fashioned English class distinction involved. My mother had met lots of upper class English girls in the 1920s so passed on the (Nancy Miford approved) preference for “Happy Christmas” to me. Googling got me more or less confirmatory information – though Merry Christmas (with its overtones of drunken revelry dates back to the 16th century). Then I came across two over 30s men of English upper middle class background who both said Happy Christmas whereas a younger one admitted that his usage was probably that of the the standard Christmas Card. I’m not sure what my English fellow atheist, fellow grandfather, Jewish friend and I will say to each other on the telephone tomorrow:)

  134. Some of your words are a bit loose. “Exterminate in massive numbers”. How could a new intifada lead to anything remotely describable as an extermination? One per cent of that 4.5 million would be 45,000. Is it even thinkable (and it’s hardly an exterminatory percentage) – taking into account the decisions that would have to be taken on both sides?

    Also you seem to be unaware of the (typically Jewish?) forcefully expressed differences of opinion amongst Israelis. Certainly there are some who would like to push policy and practice towards enlarging Israel at Palestinian expensive and no doubt many more that would go along with it passively. But you can take it that Israeli governments from time to time will have a range of options and preferences that they keep in mind and occasionally push for depending on opportunity and cost. All will share the priority of Israel’s survival as a Jewish state since the overwhelming majority of Jewish Israeli voters would regard both loss in war and a single state solution where Arabs might become a majority as totally unacceptable. Whatever we think that’s standard ME thinking.

  135. I think Israel should accept the borders of the state in which it is recognized by the majority of the world.
    I think the Palestinian refugees, who were expelled (or forced to flee) from their homes in what is now “Israel “..should give up their right of return, but they should be compensated for doing so.
    they should be allowed to settle in Palestine, not Israel.

    I think if Israel wants to retain the use of the Golan heights, and it is recognized as “Syrian sovereign territory” by the whole world , then it should offer to “lease’ the land from Syria, on a hundred year basis…much like Hong Kong was leased to the Brits.

    I think if Israel wishes to build a New Solomon’s Temple”, that is fine, but why does it have to be built on the dome of the rock ? I think Israel would be better served to pick a new spot for it, and accept a percentage of the tourist income from Palestine for all the Muslims that wish to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque every year.

    I think Israel should trade its desalinization technology for a percentage of the gas reserves owned by Gaza within Gaza’s territorial waters. Gaza gets clean water and Israel gets cheap gas.

    I think settlers who wish to live in what was once Judea and Samaria, should be entitled to do so..but they need to find a Palestinian who wishes to sell his property and buy it..But if the Palestinian does not wish to sell it…he should not have to. End of story.

    I think all the illegal settlement blocks beyond the green line should be abandoned, or integrated into Palestine,of which Settlers could retain dual citizenship…they could be Israeli citizens but pay property taxes to Palestine. if Israel wishes to retain large blocks as part of Israel, they should offer to purchase the land from Palestine.

    I think the enormous income and good will from entering into a durable peace deal would overwhelm Israel with positive energy…..like they have never seen or felt before..Jerusalem would be swarming with tourists….bursting in fact…..It would be a very exciting time for Israel and the world.

    Mr Netanyahu is always talking about “security”…”security”….what better security could Israel have than being at peace with its neighbors ?

    It could be a new golden age of peace and prosperity …..What would that feel like ?

    Aren’t you curious to find out ?
