OK … here’s a question for you. Let’s assume, strictly for the purposes of argument, that Donald Trump is literally Hitler, or at least a proto-Hitlerian fascist, like the neoliberal ruling classes and the corporate media have been saying he is. And let’s go ahead and also assume that he’s a treasonous Russian intelligence asset working in league with Vladimir Putin to destroy the very fabric of Western democracy, and that he isn’t even legitimately President, because he stole the election from Hillary Clinton with all those Russian bots and Facebook posts, and all that other stuff they’ve been accusing him of, which would make him the most monstrously evil villain in the history of monstrously evil villains, not to mention an existential threat to the nation, and Americans, and … well, the rest of humanity. And so, basically, what I want to know is, why don’t they just kill this guy?

Seriously, if Trump is really Hitler, and a traitor, working for a foreign enemy, like The New York Times and more or less every other organ of the corporate media has been telling us he is for the last two years, well, how about getting SEAL Team 6 to storm the White House in the dead of night and shoot him in the face or something? That seems to go over pretty well with people. Or what about a simple heart attack? Don’t our spooks have some kind of heart attack juice that they could slip into his Diet Coke, or smear onto the doorknob of the Oval Office?

Not that there’s really any need for subtlety. After all, if he’s actually a Russian operative, and a proto-Hitlerian genocidal dictator, there’s no reason to run a covert op or attempt to cover anything up. On the contrary, you would want do it openly, proudly, where all Americans could see it. Which is why I’d go with the DEVGRU option. They could waste him live on CNN. The bloodier the better. Just imagine the ratings! They could march into the Oval Office in that cool-looking kill squad body armor and beat him to death with a gold-plated golf club. It’s not like he’d put up much of a fight. What is he, like seventy years old or something?

All right, I know you’re probably thinking that beating a sitting president to death with a gold-plated gap wedge is nothing to joke about, and that doing so (i.e., joking about it, not actually beating the President to death) is possibly a federal crime or whatever, but we’re talking Adolf Hitler here, folks. Do I have to link to every one of the literally thousands of impassioned editorials, articles, and TV and radio segments in which respected journalists at serious news outlets have warned us, over and over, and over, that Donald Trump is literally Hitler, or virtually Hitler, and probably also a Russian agent? I don’t think so. Do you think that respectable publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Atlantic, Time, and so on, would print such inflammatory allegations if the fate of democracy were not at stake? That would be rather reckless, wouldn’t it? I mean, how many times can you call a guy Hitler before Americans demand that somebody kill him?

This is what we do, after all. Killing Hitler is America’s thing. America has been killing Hitler since … well, since Hitler killed himself. Saddam was Hitler. We killed him, didn’t we? Or we got some guys to kill him for us. Same goes for Gaddafi. He was Hitler. We killed the hell out of him. That was fun. We got some guys to sodomize him with a bayonet, and shoot him in the head, and then we laughed about it on national television. Oh, and Osama bin Laden. He was definitely Hitler … OK, not while he was working with the CIA, but later, after he went native on us. We shot him in the face and dumped in the ocean. And Milosevic, he was also Hitler! OK, we didn’t kill him, but we killed his whole country, then we put him on trial in the Hague for war crimes. And what about Stalin, Ho Chi Minh, Castro, Khomeini, Bashar al Assad, and all the other Hitlers we wanted to kill, or tried to kill but couldn’t kill? The list goes on and on, and on.

I kid you not, if there is anything Americans love more than working a hundred hours a week and buying stuff with credit cards, it is repeatedly killing Adolf Hitler. You just point at somebody, call him Hitler, and Americans are ready to help you kill him. And, even if someone isn’t technically Hitler, as long as those respectable news sources tell us it’s OK to kill them … well, that’s usually good enough for us.

For example, if you’re messing around with our “interests,” like maybe interfering with our corporations’ exploitation of your Central American country, we will have no choice but to fund and train some sadistic death squads to hideously torture and murder your people until you come to your senses. Or, if you’re even considering aligning with some annoying, fanatically religious regime that deposed the puppet we installed in their country, and that is sitting in the middle of the Middle East screwing up our restructuring plans, and which the Russians won’t let us tactically nuke, well, we’ll have to help our friends, the Saudis, bomb the living Allah out of you, starve your women and children to death, and otherwise wipe you off the face of the Earth.

So let’s not suddenly get all squeamish about killing Hitler or … you know, whoever. Killing Hitlers, and other bogeymen, and innocent men, women, and children is as American as apple pie, not to mention an extremely profitable business. So what’s the problem here, exactly? Either Trump is Hitler or he isn’t Hitler. If he’s Hitler, and a traitorous Russian agent, like all those respected media sources, and those anonymous “Intelligence Community” sources, and those people on Twitter say he is, what the hell is taking so long? Why doesn’t somebody get in there and kill him? What good are all these black ops types if they can’t even save America from Hitler?

I don’t know, maybe the ruling classes don’t believe they have generated enough public support with all their “resistance” and “Hitler” stuff to brutally assassinate the president on television (which is hard to fathom, given the relentless propaganda campaign they’ve been concertedly waging). Perhaps it needs to be a grassroots effort. In which case, maybe the Democratic Party, Bill Kristol, Rob Reiner, Rachel Maddow, Michael Moore, General Hayden, Hillary Clinton, Alec Baldwin, the Editorial Board of The New York Times, and other key Resistance fighters could organize a “March to Assassinate Trump.” People could break out their pussyhats again. Everyone loves those pussyhats! They could march on CIA headquarters in Langley. Just think of all the signs and slogans … “SCREW DEMOCRACY, JUST KILL HIM ALREADY!” “WHAT WOULD WILLIAM CASEY DO?” and the always popular call and response, “TELL ME WHAT THE DEEP STATE LOOKS LIKE … THIS IS WHAT THE DEEP STATE LOOKS LIKE!” The possibilities are almost endless!

I’m not saying it would be a cakewalk … or that there wouldn’t be any kind of blowback. The Resistance would likely catch a little flak from the millions of toothless, Oxy-addicted, white supremacist Nazis that voted for the guy. There would probably be a bit of “civil unrest,” but then, what’s the point of militarizing virtually every major police force in the country if you’re not prepared to turn them loose on the citizenry every once and while? And anyway, the main thing is, regardless of how messy things would probably get, it would provide the global capitalist ruling classes with an opportunity to remind these unruly “populists” what happens when you vote for Hitler!

  1. This column seems to contradict his earlier effort in which he said the whole political process is just puppet show theater designed to create the illusion of choice. Now he’s saying there is a difference. Unless he’s taking the piss and saying there’s no difference, only that some unhinged folks on the left think there is. Whatever…

    P.S. Hopkins should really lose the “award-winning” descriptor in his bio. A committee of Scottish Neds telling you you’re great and giving you a lump of haggis really isn’t much to brag about.

    Are you serious?

    The entire American mainstream media apparatus and its online supporting cast of acolytes, shills, Twitter twats and useful idiots has been hysterically screaming for two years that Trump is a treasonous fascist goon (“literally Hitler”) who gets his marching orders from the Kremlin.

    We are reminded of this on a daily basis and told the Moscow installed neo-Hitlerian POTUS’s goal is nothing less than the destruction of “our democracy” and the “rules based” global order that it champions.

    Yes, the President of the United States is a Russian controlled fascist operative who is literally as dangerous as Adolf Hitler was before he blew his brains out. The NYT, WaPo, CNN and Guardian do Serious Objective Journalism and do not joke about this kind of thing. As you well know frivolous comparisons to Hitler and the Nazi regime are anti-Semitic. This is not some stupid satire from The Onion, this is REAL LIFE. (Think FEMA camps and “soap” factories.)

    Consider: A low-IQ troglodyte goat herder/terrorist we were once on good terms with goes rogue and is accused of killing a few thousand people. American people, which is very bad, but this goof was a lightweight compared to the Russian agent Hitler incarnate POTUS we are dealing with now. How many years in a row did the NYT write about this tool? Exactly.

    Nevertheless he becomes the catalyst for a U.S. led Global War of Terror and when we catch his Allahu Akbaring ass he gets dispatched, with extreme prejudice, to the afterlife. American justice at its most, uh, just. A proud moment in our history. The media agreed that justice had indeed been served.

    Yet in 2018, two years after Soviet dictator Putin’s internet troll farmers installed him in Hillary’s White House, a treasonous neo-Nazi president (literally Hitler!) is still walking around in the open and allowed to suck oxygen out of the atmosphere at his leisure like he’s a human being and not a genocidal maniac whose violently oppressive Twitter feed alone has already caused more trauma than Pearl Harbor and 9/11 combined?

    That is batshit insane! This guy is HITLER and he’s allowed to live in peace and propagate his evil like he’s no worse than Bubba Clinton! If you don’t think there is anything wrong with that you are no better than Joe fucking Goebbels and I spit in your general direction.

    P.S. – I applaud your condemnation of Mr. Hopkins’ un-American frivolity. Calling out disgusting fascist apologetics disguised as humor takes real guts. Thank you, sir, for doing the right thing. They will say you are an idiot snowflake who didn’t “get” the joke but with a Soviet installed Hitler in the White House laughter is the worst kind of hate speech. (Calling it the fucking WHITE House is so racist! How degrading and offensive! I bet Hopkins thinks that’s pretty “funny” too!)

  10. BaronAsh says:

    This is a really stupid article and the entire contemplation (of assassinating the Head of State) is dangerously misguided.

    It seems people today, especially those often in the public eye, are ignorant of the self-existing power of symbol. The leader is not just an individual doing a job but also a symbol of leadership which in turn is a symbol of things working properly, of a society having internal and external meaning. Joking about murder (of anyone) is bad symbology; discussing assassination of the national leader is a sign that the society is losing its grip, is falling apart, indeed almost wishes to suicide itself.

    Interestingly, Trump’s over-arching theme is that of ‘America First’ or ‘Make America Great Again.’ He is not in favor of national suicide. The fact that his stance is regarded as proto-fascist, or Hitlerian in the evil post-war sense, is both twisted and ominous.

    I personally deplore Unz publishing this piece. If it was tongue in cheek, it was too subtly worded for me to ‘get’ that way. Again, the entire thesis, or subject matter, was/is truly deplorable, and I urge the author to rise out of his mental gutter and start writing better stuff.

    The problem with satire in an age that is already self-righteously nuts and apparently determined to top any previous record for societal nuttiness is that by the time you start to get your satire to the extremes, the people you satirize have been there, perhaps getting bored from their sojourn.

    Of course our world of Progressives/Liberals/SJWs/Persons on the Correct Side of History is simply inundated with individuals whose groupthink has advanced to the level of mentally plotting the tortuous death not merely of Donald Trump but also of every white male Christian who has dared oppose them and their faith in any way they deem insufferable.

  20. PeterMX says:

    Hitler was the good guy leading the good guys. He was defending his country and the rest of Europe from the murderous Jewish Bolsheviks who murdered at least eight million Ukrainians in the 1930′s while Germany had very little violence in the 1930′s. Germany probably even had less violence than the USA before the war, the USA being known for its criminals and gangsters like Al Capone. The Jewish Bolsheviks were working to spread this violence throughout Europe, such as in Spain, Hungary and wherever they could. When the brave fascists stood up against these murderers thugs, wealthy Jews paid off Churchill and lobbied others to start a world war and attack Germany. That is why German Jews were incarcerated and it’s why Jews suffered in the war. Jews created WW II and were responsible for the genocide the allies committed against the Germans, murdering probably between 12 and 20 million Germans and they have been lying about it since they started the war.

    Many famous people unequivocally stated that Jews pushed Britain and the west into the war with Germany (the Duke of Windsor and former King of Graet Britain, Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, Adolf Hitler, Oswald Moseley, British newspaper magnate Lord Beaverbrook and many others). And the first President of Israel, Chaim Weizmann wrote to Chucrhill that Jews could bring the USA into the war on Britain’s side if Churchill accomodated the Jews wishes, namely, work towards the creation of Israel. The letter resides in Weizmann’s archives in Israel and a copy is on David Irving’s website. For this, for turning against every country in eastern Europe and for leading the murderous NKVD against east Europeans, Jews brought hatred and revenge upon themselves. They reaped what they sowed. David Irving discusses the Jewish payoffs that created WW II.

    The anti German propaganda, when will it ever end ?
    In 1870 the French emperor lost popularity, and had the idea that success in war would help him.
    He attacked what now is S Germany.
    What th attack made possible ws to unify Germany, then a large number of petty kingdoms, each with import duties, own currency and whatever.
    The unified Germany developed with a speed that astonished and frightened the world, especially the British empire was frightened.
    Around 1900 Germany was ‘on top of the world’, scientifically, technically, socially, democratic, economically.
    Except for the fright of Great Britain, there of course was the fright of other empires, the tsarist, the Habsburg, and the French.
    And there was a big problem, German antisemitism.
    As in other countries jews had got equal rights, the expectation was that they would disappear through assimilation.
    But it went the other way, jews made use of the quick economic development of Germany, and became more prominent in German society, through close economic cooperation, intermarriage.
    So the contrary of assimilation.
    Thus antisemitism.
    As a result many jews left Germany, such as the father of Bernard Baruch, the grandfather, I think, of Morgenthau sr.
    They were anti German.
    So what did the world get, empires afraid of Germany, rich jews with revenge ideas.
    Never found anything that jews planned WWI, the British were the main instigators.
    But Morgenthau sr financed Wilson’s election campaign, as a result the USA became anti German.
    The follow up is known, Hitler resurrected Gemany after Versailles, Bernard Baruch financed FDR getting into politics.
    In 1939 Hitler ws quite clear ‘if jews again caused a world war, jews themselves might get ausgerottet’, what exactly then the word meant, open for discussion.
    Germany lost the war, but many or most of the deported jews perished.
    The victors propaganda continues to the present day, great advantages, Germans still feeling guilty, the basis of the EU, that brings peace.
    Hollywood, great in propaganda.
    Never seen one movie about heroic Germans.
    What we need is a European Chrustjow,who has the guts to change history.

    I think it may come down to how one chooses to define “Hitler” in our day and age.

    Twenty years ago, the notion of “Hitler” functioned as a metaphor for any imperial tyrannical world leader who sought to conquer the planet through wars of aggression.

    Intermingled with this metaphor was the notion of fascism, totalitarianism, militarism,Jew hatred, antisemitism, Germanic supremacy and genocide .

    It seems, however, over the past twenty years, The epitaph of Hitler has been transformed into both a psychological prod and a weapon of war, inveighed against any and every world leader who has attempted to stand up against the total conquest of Palestine, by Israel.

    A unique twisting of the meaning, and well worthy of some consideration.

    If one examines a singular common trait of every nation we have “preemptively attacked” over the past 18 years….(.as well as nations we are planning to attack)….that “common”trait is crystal clear…. their unwavering support for the continued existence of Palestine and their refusal to recognize the state of Israel..

    One could well conclude that our “preemptive” destruction of nearly all of the “Shia Crescent” nations, (as well as Libya) was a direct byproduct of either their enmity towards Israel, or their support for Palestinian rights to self determination.

    The very notion these nations were destroyed because we were seeking to spread “democracy”and “freedom” by ousting brutal dictators….quickly collapses when we recognize just how many brutal dictators we prop up…merely because their sympathies align with Israel, and not Palestine.

    It is worthy to note,too, how many Western leaders (and thinkers) have been vilified as “Hitler” for merely recognizing the rights of Palestinians to their own freedom and sovereignty .

    It is worthy to notice how the epitaph of “Hitler” is hurled at any who expose and condemn the brutal treatment of Palestinians under Israels ongoing military occupation.

    Here is a partial list of “Hitlers”(who have criticize Israel or its lobby) over the years:

    Pres. Jimmy Carter- “Hitler” .
    Mearsheimer and Walt-”Hitler(s)” .
    Richard Falk-”Hitler”
    Judge Goldstone-”Hitler”
    Norman Finklestein- “Hitler”
    Pres. Barack Obama-”Hitler”
    Rev. Desmond Tutu- “Hitler”
    Pope Benedict- “Hitler”
    Jeremy Corbyn- “Hitler”

    There is also an alternate “Hitler” epitaph, used as weapon to subjugate American leaders into maintaining an “Israel first policy”…..

    Both Senator Chuck Hagel and later ,Candidate Donald Trump were vilified as “Hitler” for two reasons…one, for criticizing our wars in the middle east…..and two, for attempting to put America’s national interests before “Israels”…which is absolutely “taboo” in Washington.

    If Vladimir Putin became “Hitler” it was not before his “Look at what you have done “speech at the UN in 2015…condemning our utter “decimation” of countries in that region which never attacked us . Putins’ willingness to enter the fray in Syria, wipe out ISIS , and stave off the total collapse of that country is what made him an “Uber Hitler”.

    One could argue that Donald Trump’s stinging critiques of our catastrophic wars in the middle east,our lying media, and our horrendous national debt, is what won him the White House.

    It is also may well be what made him the new “Hitler ” as well as a ” Putin Stooge”.

    Of course Trump has since redeemed himself by doing five things , Attacking Syria..Sanctioning Russia….Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem….Tearing up the Iran deal…Gut punching the UN body…and cutting off all US aid to Palestine.

    If Trump is not “Hitler” anymore, he is getting close.

    Well, first off, I skimmed it a second time but still felt it was serious, so clearly I didn’t get the sarcasm. Perhaps it was because of the glaringly inappropriate image of a beheaded President, something which shouldn’t be shown even in jest. My point, no doubt clumsily expressed, was that whether or not it was sarcasm, the symbology of showing a decapitated leader is harmful, even dangerous, and symptomatic of a society hell-bent on self-destruction. I continue to be amazed that this photo keeps getting shown by the likes of Hannity, and now also Unz etc.

    Maybe it’s because I was raised in the UK – where sarcasm is rampant btw – but the visceral reaction I get from seeing the photo makes it pretty much impossible to ‘get’ that the whole thing was tongue-in-cheek. Even if it was, as you say, the image overpowers the bafflegab wordshmithery and the result is still something that stinks….. again, I recommend the author move on to better, deeper and wiser subject matter.

    You also have a conveniently short memory.

    There was a President of the United States, (our last Constitutional President), John Fitzgerald Kennedy, – who actually lost his head (in Dallas, on November 22, 1963).

    This individual, acting for others, and she is no fool, is clearly advocating the murder of the ‘official’ if not actually Constitutional President of the United States, Casino Trump.

    There was a time that a suggestive stunt such as this would earn the stuntee some Hard Time in the calaboose. There was a time that our Government, while never perfect (actually highly corrupt at all times), represented a Constitutional Sovereign Nation. There was a time when our people had hope, pride, honor, and liberty (did I mention the time our people also had jobs that paid a living wage – where workers made things that people needed)? There was a time…..

    Please pay attention: A President of the United States, a war hero, brilliant, an author, (I didn’t say perfect), and fearless when it came to protecting his PT Boat crew, or the rest of the American People, was assassinated, along with our Republic, (in a hail of bullets).

    And the Mainstream Media have insisted, and the brains washing educational establishment has taught that the assassination of JF Kennedy’s brother, Robert Kennedy has NO connection to the earlier murder of his brother.

    I agree with a fair bit of what you’ve written, particularly this:

    “The leader is not just an individual doing a job but also a symbol”.

    I believe the answer to the authors question lies within this statement. I also believe many commentators/pundits, amateur and professional alike, lose sight of the significance of the symbolism re: Trump, whatever their reasons (dishonesty and faulty reasoning being the two most likely).

    The answer to the authors question is because someone very powerful, or a group of very powerful someone’s, doesn’t want him dead and this someone or group of someone’s is more powerful than those who probably do want him dead. Yes, I believe they exist and if they believed they could get away with it, they would do it. But, they know they can’t get away with it and settle for the next best thing: dehumanization and harassment in the hopes of driving him out. They want the symbol gone.

    So, why is he hated so much by so many political elites? Because he isn’t one of them.

    I know many people who find it difficult to believe since he shares similarities with those in Mordor-on-the-Potomac (fame, wealth, power, a certain lifestyle, etc.) and Europe but, he isn’t one of them. Basic logic tells us that if he were one of them we wouldn’t be witnessing much of what we are witnessing.

    Thus, the revealing of the significance of the symbol and what Trump symbolizes. They hate it but someone else more powerful, for now, sees the value in what he symbolizes.

    It can’t be because he is white for obvious reasons. It can’t be because he’s a male for obvious reasons. It can’t be because he is nominally Christian for obvious reasons. It can’t be because he’s married. And it can’t be because he doesn’t enjoy and appreciate, wealth, power, fame, etc. It can’t be due to dishonest gain for obvious reasons so, what is it really?

    Hopkins would be clever if this were still 1994. The culture has changed.

    I maintained no such premise. I would suppose that quality, in Ron Unz’s eyes, is very much a “condition for publication.” Your failure to recognize quality doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

    If Mrs. Claus’s reindeers’ menu were published here, I’m guessing you’d read it, along with the appended comments, in order to become all offended by it.

  63. BaronAsh says:

    My initial appraisal of this – also as no more than armchair amateur – is that he would not have run without the backing of a power network with the capability to guarantee his family’s security. Which also further implies that he is beholden to it/them in some way in order to maintain such a guarantee.

    My first guess was that this was most likely the Zionist/Nationalist faction of Israeli/Jewish power networks, who have been reported, of late, as being in a long-term struggle with the globalist/credit-cartel bloc of the Jewish international diaspora. The latter, for example, does not really need the former for anything in that Israel is not much of an asset for them on any level. But then I read somewhere the story about how a group of military insiders with access to top-level Army Intelligence – which is hierarchically above lower level agencies such as CIA, NSA etc. and pretty much everything they have is filtered or scanned by the senior military intel folks. This faction wanted to, generally speaking, restore the Republic versus allowing it be dissolved into the World Bank/UN/IMF globalist gloop, held together by the questionable adhesive of social dysfunction brought to us by your friendly neomarxist ‘liberal progressives’ who are chipping away at the post Christian, post industrial, post colonial empire world order and trying to replace it with some sort of modern, expert-driven utopia (which like all such ideas will cause untold death, misery, disease and suffering, all for the ‘greater good’ which they fervently believe they are promulgating).

    Something like that. In either case, the same sort of underlying structure is assumed: somebody has Trump and his family’s back, and therefore he must be aligned with some very powerful networks.

    This is problematic because not only is the Presidency beholden to a hidden power network, but also, let’s face it, the military intelligence aspect is where much of the swamp action is based, or put another way: the military industrial complex, along with its need for black op under-the-table funding with secret agencies and suchlike, is the nexus from which many of the deep state tentacles have been grown (that and fuzzy math central banks issuing private credit lines to fund public currencies and taxpayer-funded debt).

    But one thing which has surprised me the most about T’s presidency is that he has kept his promises to a surprising degree. The big one lacking is the Wall, but there he has clearly been stymied by the Congressional Establishment, and I suspect he is about to solve that logjam in the next few months, either by hopskotching over them by using the military, or by finally getting a Congress willing to play ball if/when the R’s maintain both Houses after the mid-terms.

    As to the symbology business: the thing is, Trump is not just a character (big, brash, vulgar etc.) he is also a President. Which is a role. Which is also a living symbol, similar to a King or Queen. Kill that symbol and in some ways you are damaging the life force of the country. I think it’s terrible that Unz published that photo, for example. I guess people are inured to such crudeness these days. But if so, they can’t blame Trump for that as they keep doing. The roots go much further back and far deeper than him… and again, all this does not bode well for the Republic.

    However, maybe in two years time things will be looking up again. If he keeps winning, and in ways more substantive than he has ably managed so far.

    Point of protocol.. American politics it is not.. Politics is the business of the Democratic party and the Republican party and those it allows and selects to be elected. Being elected to the USA is the prize, but no American is allowed to play politics unless he or she is elected. Israel, Saudi Arabia, British Bankers, Foreign persons and foreign governments can all play, but playing politics is off limits to Americans.

    Could the reason the USA is so problematic to so many Americans be, because Americans are not allowed to play the game of politics? Americans are spectators, but not players.

    Politics is off limits to Americans. Americans politics is just one more coached sport that Americans watch on their media gadgets. Americans are encouraged to watch for free 24/7 privately produced fake news on public media infrastructures and if they wish, Americans can still buy the same fake news at a newsstand; but still Americans cannot play politics, they can only watch.

    Americans just watch.. complain a lot in between football, basket ball, Job, and under water basket weaving events. Americans argue about, but not with, privately owned fake news producers. Americans increase their credit card debt each time a psychologically engineered advertisement is presented. Americans have babies (future consumers are important to the political system). Americans work, pay and retirement taxes, support the medical system scams, read about new wars, go to funerals, grow old and get cremated.. But Americans do not, and constitutionally cannot engage in Politics. That’s why Americans don’t engage in assassinations or care about history or foreign languages (Americans leave those kinds of things to the CIA, Mossad, and other intelligence services, people who are trained to support politicians). Some few Americans are registered (licensed voters) and they are allowed to vote in elections. Each voting licensee, is allowed to vote for 1 of 2 or more persons to fill one of 5 salaried jobs in the political system, yep, American voters may only vote for 5 politicians, hummm but there are 527 to be elected?
    1 vote for P, 1 vote for VP, 1 vote for each of two Senators, and 1 vote for 1 house member. That’s five.

    The elected are politicians, they are elected ( better than being licensed?) and paid a giant salary to practice politics (meaning they can lie as they see fit, they can call each other names (so long as they don’t mean it), and if the elected get paid enough, they can vote for laws no American would vote for, they sit on committees that keep what they do secret, the visit at taxpayer expense foreign countries, etc. ). To be a politician in America, one must first be elected.

    But Americans cannot and never will be allowed to vote on one single issue, not one vote to decide peace or war, not one vote to decide who gets what lucrative government contract, not one vote to decide who shall be assigned highly paid, all expenses vacations as Ambassador to one of the many nations of the world, not one vote to decide on who shall represent Americans at UN (the USA is well represented), Not even one vote on who should be Admiral of the Navy, or General of the Army or who shall be a life-time member of the US Supreme Court, or who shall be the Chairman of the Federal Reserve or head of the dreaded U. S. Treasury or IRS. When is the last time, or the first that you voted on a law.

Stealth assassinations, false flag operations and closed door conspiracies are a reality and even the people who use “conspiracy theorist” as a snarl term (e.g. Russiagaters) believe in them when they are prepped by the media, or leaders they consider trustworthy, to do so.

    I think the upheaval across Europe and North America is here to stay. It’s not just a blip that will fade after this or that party is elected because none of those parties are going to change anything fundamental. A guy like Trump knows how to use rhetoric to tell people what they want to hear, and he will tinker around the edges of the system, but after he leaves office the status quo will still be in place, and so will the anger of the people it is screwing over and displacing. It will get worse. This is just the beginning.

    Schumer: Russia Manipulates US Political System to Impose Sanctions on Itself As a Way To Make Us Think They Don’t Manipulate Our Political System

    Foreign meddling in the US political system continues to worry US policy-makers and, with Congress preparing to launch another investigation into Russian meddling next month, it is clear Russia continues to be the main focus of concern.

    This will be the third investigation into Russian manipulation of our political system since 2016. It became necessary to add the third investigation after the first two investigations turned up no evidence at all of Russian interference in our democracy.

    Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona brushed off charges that the investigation was a giant waste of taxpayer money. “Nothing is more sacred than the sanctity of our democracy,” he said Thursday at a press conference held behind a Home Depot in Rosedale, Maryland to announce new sanctions on Russia.

    “And to those who say there is no reason to go to war with Russia, that we have no trade disputes, no religious or ethnic conflicts, no unsettled territorial claims, let me just remind them that Vladimir Putin is literally Hitler,” he said.

    He paused momentarily as pro-Israel stalwart Diane Feinstein, US Senator from California, stepped up and whispered something in his ear.

    “Sorry, make that ‘Putin is basically Hitler’,” Senator McCain corrected himself. “Trump is literally Hitler.” The senator giggled sheepishly. “I always fuck that up.”

    Senator Ben Cardin 0f Maryland, a pro-Israel stalwart and ranking member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, has been floating a report among colleagues recently purporting to show the diabolical hand of Putin behind recent Middle East conflicts.

    At Thursday’s press conference, Senator Cardin demonstrated how the bewildering pandemonium of Middle East politics has a single source: Russia.

    He emphasized five undeniable facts about the US/Russia relationship:

    1. The United States recently bombed Syria, Russia’s ally and Israel’s longtime foe.
    2. The United States recently invaded Iraq, Russia’s ally and Israel’s longtime foe, and killed four million Iraqi civilians.
    3. We overthrew a pro-Russia government in the Ukraine.
    4. We’ve got troops massed on Russia’s borders.
    5. The list of sanctions we’ve imposed on Russia gets longer every day.

    “Which country, aside from the US, is the one country common to all five of those facts?” Senator Cardin asked, pausing for effect. “Russia,” he said.

    Pro-Israel stalwart and Senate Minority Leader, Charles Schumer, agreed that all the evidence points to Russian meddling. “It is a little too perfect,” he argued, “how consistently American foreign policy aligns with Israeli objectives, while acting against Russian interests.

    “What better way for the Russians to disguise their meddling and manipulation in our democracy than to make all the evidence indicate otherwise?” Senator Schumer said.

    The Jewish senator, who spearheaded a successful effort to include 700 million dollars in the federal government’s 2018 omnibus spending bill to fund a missile defense system for the Jewish state of Israel, continued, “I know, if I were Russia, and I wanted to manipulate the American political system, but make everyone think it was Israel, I would contrive to meddle in such a way that American foreign policy would dance to Israel’s tune.”

    Visibly moved, the New York senator stopped speaking and dropped his head. “When I think about how Christians in Russia used my great-great-grandmother for sword practice…”, his voice broke. “And now this… this…”, blinking back tears, he spat out the word, “Putin… and his meddling… meddling!” A sob escaped him.

    Senator Schumer wiped his nose on his sleeve. Then, slowly pulling his head down into his neck and looking up from under his eyebrows, he said, “Perhaps it is time to put thermonuclear war back on the table.”

    Behind Senator Schumer, standing in a line with the other senators, Senator McCain squealed and began clapping his hands together in a rapid staccato. Standing beside him, Senator Feinstein quickly pushed Senator McCain’s hands back down to his sides while Senator Schumer, clearly infuriated by the outburst, remained at the podium glare-grinning while some sort of lizard creature whispered something in his ear.

  80. C.J., I love this article and the accompanying sarcasm that it is thoroughly infused with. Not that many on the Left would be reading this article (while wearing their pink pussy hat of course), but I would think if they chose to venture out of their Blue Bubble and risk getting totally outraged, they may start calling that journalist and writer of ever so witty articles Adolf Hitler as well. Just as those idiots in France went around marching “Je suis Charlie Hebdo”, I suggest that those of us not encased in that Blue Bubble have a march with a sign (and maybe a pussy hat of a different color – lol) that says
    “I am Adolf Hitler – because the MSM tells me so.” I would sure love to put that mustachioed manlet to bed once and forever.

    Anyway!!!!
    What I am trying to say that any white person who is voting for Democrats is contributing to:
    Destruction of American way.
    Destruction of American power.
    Destruction of American Constitution.
    Destruction of American government.
    And so destruction of America.
    Destruction of white people in America.
    And so destruction of white people around the world.

    Pretty much.

    He was too good a player for his own good. Besides….he’s been the only European president delivered to that thing.
    Intelligence, experience….pride…..access to information those stooges had no clue about.

    When powers realized he couldn’t be bought, couldn’t outsmart him…”death in a cellar”.Medieval shit.

    And…haha….most people raging against The Empire don’t know that.

    Maybe, even on a subscouncius level, it’s too just scary to take a good look at.

    I mean….if “they” can do that to a president of European state…what they can do to “me” if they find that useful ?!

    Hess was a very old man. I am sure that, if he had ever been allowed to speak freely, he would have had much of interest to say.

    It is interesting that he was, in the end, the only prisoner, and in solitary confinement all along.

    Also that the prison warden’s regimes there were the last reflection of the former occupation zones of Germany (one day French, one Brit., one U.S.). IIRC, the USSR and Russia had been excluded by the time of his death.

    I was convinced that you are absolutely rigid. But I see now that you, as everybody else, is developing your views. Pleasant surprise to me.

    The tale of Hess is surely of interest.

    However, except perhaps for some of his prison guards.nobody ever got to hear it. Solitary confinement for such a long time, when he had landed on a peace mission in the first place.

    It is also curious that he was the only prisoner left there, and that the prison admin. was the last remnant of the ‘zones’ set up after WWII, control was still rotating between France, U.K., and U.S.A. at the time of his death. IIRC, the USSR had been excluded. I may not recall correctly on that point.

    Hess was very old, so possibly natural. Which ‘power’ was in charge of the one-prisoner prison at the time (will look it up myself tomorrow)?

    I am confused now….

    I was convinced that you are absolutely rigid.

    Well, no man is. I mean, with age that rigidity becomes more of an issue with each passing decade. True, there are medical remedies, access to younger partners, some physical and mental tricks but still. Plumbing and time…

    But I see now that you, as everybody else, is developing your views. Pleasant surprise to me.

    THAT is confusing. I thought that being rigid was what pleasant was all about ?!? At least the important part of the play. Well, for a man perspective, anyway.

    Ah, well, the things about humans, women in particular..learning never stops.

    On a more serious note, also about people, most people tend to think that way only when they find other’s views similar to own.

    And, serious….when I get complimented for my views by, say….certain…types (not saying you are one of them, mind you), I take that as an urgent need to re-evaluate my position.
    Say….as long as around 60 % people commenting here disagree with me I am good.

    Makes sense?

    Back to Mr. Milosevic and the rest of people there.
    What majority in “alt” keep failing to understand from that charade….that’s the way it will be when “they” decide to clamp on decent.

    Well…obviously multitasking isn’t my forte, especially when mixing work and posting here.
    That “decent” should’ve been “dissent”, of course.

    One more thing about Mr. Milosevic and the rest of the guys who’ve gone through that.
    The utter ignorance about all that on “alt” environment in West is, for me, the only indicator I personally need to know how all …this…. is really serious.

    There are some examples there of extraordinary competence and courage, when faced with The Empire’s wrath.
    True, those guys don’t speak much English, so, simply too much of an effort. Understandable. True, there are tons of related material in English, but, boring, I get it.

    TPTBs do know all that, of course, and use those experiences to improve their systems, processes and procedures.

    Ah, well, people learn the best by own experience. Worse it is, better the learning is.
    All good.

    Being white isn’t going to do you any good dumb ass if Trump, who takes orders from Adelson’s ZOA, lets his pet Jew, Kushner, and his bffs, MbS and Netanyahu blow up more of the ME.

    Hope you got lots of guns and can do more than shoot your self in the foot when the US goes belly up and you have to fight off blacks and other whites for food from garbage cans.

  91. Well?
    Yes and no. Trump is at least trying. But I do not think he has enough elks.

  92. JLK says:

    I’m not convinced that Trump ever was an “outsider.” He’s been receiving plenty of media attention since the 1980s, which is often a sign of an “anointed one.”

    I’ll believe he’s an outsider when he appoints a special counsel to investigate the crimes of 9/11. I don’t know if there was ever a risk of him doing such a thing. Maybe there was- Mueller was put in charge of the FBI a few weeks before the event, and he’s the one (metaphorically of course) holding a gun to Trump’s head.

    As a practical matter I don’t think Presidents have very much power over deep intelligence operations, many of which span several decades.

    The Nazi spirit rules the world by proxy of the US, both through the Republicans and Democrats (beside the European/Canadian puppet democracies) and the so called ‘respectable’ publication organizations, especially the mentioned ones, beside many alt-right publication systems. The public has to be kept confused by pointing at Russia or whatever one is puppet trained by the puppet training propaganda systems to accuse, in order to distract attention.
    Nazi spirit does not at all point to neo-Nazis or white-supremacists by the way… That’s for the public to dig into.
    Divide and rule.

  96. Addendum.
    And the Jews are the most cohesive Nacis living in all Naci lands.
    What do you think how long it will last when all Nacis will explode in violence.
