OK, so, that was a close one. For a moment there, I was starting to worry that the Democrats weren’t going to take back the House and rescue us from “the brink of fascism.” Which, if that had happened, in addition to having to attend all those horrible stadium rallies and help the government mass murder the Jews, we would have been denied the next two years of Donald Trump-related congressional hearings and investigations that we can now look forward to … I’m going to go ahead and call them the Hitlergate Hearings.

Staging these hearings has always been a crucial part of the Resistance’s strategy. As history has proved, time and time again, when literal fascists take over your democracy, outlaw opposing political parties, and start shipping people off to concentration camps and revoking journalists’ White House access, the only effective way to defeat them is to form a whole buttload of congressional committees and investigate the living Hitler out of them. This is especially the case when the literal fascists who have commandeered your democracy are conspiring with a shifty-eyed Slavic dictator whose country you have essentially surrounded with your full-spectrum dominant military forces, and who your media have thoroughly demonized, but who is nevertheless able to brainwash your citizens into electing his fascist puppet president with a few thousand dollars worth of Facebook ads.

Once you’ve determined that has happened (which it obviously has), the gloves have to come off. No more prancing around in pussyhats, not with Russian Hitler in office! No, at that point, you really have no choice but to wait two years until your opposition party (which Hitler somehow forgot to ban) regains control of the House of Representatives (which Hitler somehow forgot to dissolve), wait another two months until they take office, and then immediately start issuing subpoenas, auditing Hitler’s financial records, and taking affidavits from former hookers. I realize that may sound extreme, but remember, we’re talking literal fascists, backed by literal Russian fascists, who are going around emboldening literal fascism, and making literal fascist hand gestures on television, and doing all kinds of other fascist stuff!

Now, OK, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably wondering, if Trump is really a fascist, not to mention a Russian intelligence asset, why hasn’t the “Resistance” just assassinated him? Many of them are ex-CIA, after all, or are otherwise members of the Intelligence Community. Why bother with all these congressional hearings? Why not just go in there and kill him?

Well, the problem with that apparently is, they have to follow “the rule of law,” which prevents them from just assassinating people, and “regime-changing” governments that are not playing ball, and, you know, staging military coups, arming and training sadistic death squads, and sanctioning thousands of children to death. That kind of stuff is not just wrong, like, morally, or whatever, it is also illegal. So, even though a Russian agent, who is also literally Adolf Hitler, stole the election from Hillary Clinton, and is remaking America into a fascist dictatorship, the only recourse the “Resistance” has is to mount these congressional investigations and publicize them in excruciating detail until November 3, 2020, at which point all this “Fascism” hysteria will just disappear into the ether like the “War on Terror” hysteria did the moment Trump won the nomination.

But that’s two years from now, which is almost an eternity. In the meantime, the neoliberal “Resistance” has got some serious investigating to do! And not just Mueller’s investigation of Trump’s treasonous activities as a Russian agent. No, we’re talking congressional investigations of his tax returns, his Deutsche Bank statements, takeout receipts, dry cleaning tickets, his entire fascistic financial history! And then there’s that emoluments thing! And that Kavanaugh thing! And that security clearance thing! And that bimbo thing! And some other things! And, well, I think it’s pretty safe to assume we are on the road to Subpoena City!

The corporate media appear to agree. Scanning the post-election coverage, it looked like most “Resistance” journalists got the official press release. The Guardian started taking live bets on which investigations the House would launch first. The New York Times, in its ongoing efforts to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller from the fascistic “muzzling” its editorial staff are certain that Trump is about to subject him to in order to prevent him from presenting evidence of Trump’s formative years in the GRU (and possible links to the Skripal assassins), published a “roadmap” Mueller can follow to “send incriminating evidence directly to Congress,” bypassing the Nazified Justice Department! According to CNN (a dissident samizdat owned by the Turner Broadcasting division of Warner Media, LLC, which, in turn, is owned by AT&T, a multinational conglomerate holding company), “House Democrats are preparing to unleash the full force of their oversight powers on the Trump administration” in series of “high-octane Democratic-controlled hearings,” which Jim Acosta will be covering live, if he has to take out every jackbooted Nazi intern on the Hill to do it! I could go on, but you get the picture. And for anyone who doesn’t, here it is …

The next two years will be a demonstration of the power of the global capitalist empire and its predominant propaganda machine the likes of which the world has never witnessed. By November 3, 2020, they will need to have brainwashed enough Americans into voting for whatever global capitalist puppet the Democrats end up nominating to defeat Donald Trump in the general election, which isn’t going to be a cakewalk. To do this, they will need to foment such an atmosphere of mindless hysteria, emotional exhaustion, and paranoia that anyone to the left of Mussolini will stagger to the polls on election day and vote for the Democrat just to make it stop.

In addition to the Hitlergate Hearings, each and every excruciating moment of which will be broadcast live and then milked to death by the corporate media’s experts and pundits, they will continue to subject us to a torrent of messaging designed to convince us that Donald Trump is simultaneously Hitler and a Russian operative, and that America is literally “on the brink of fascism,” and that anyone who questions this narrative is a Putin-loving Trumpian fascist, and a hate criminal, and probably a “domestic terrorist.”

None of this messaging will need to make sense. The goal of the “Resistance” is not to present a credible case that Donald Trump is literally a fascist or a Russian operative, or that global capitalism is in any real danger of being torn asunder by literal fascism (whatever your definition of fascism is). The goal of the “Resistance” is to make it unmistakeably clear who is really running things, and what happens to annoying billionaire ass clowns who get elected president without their permission, and to the ignorant rabble who elect such ass clowns, or who vote to leave the European Union (which, of course, they will never allow to happen, except perhaps in some nominal sense).

In other words, the global capitalist ruling classes are about to teach the world a lesson. It is the same basic lesson they have been teaching the world since the dissolution of the Soviet Union. They taught it in the former Yugoslavia. They taught it in Greece, and Iraq, and Libya. They have taught it throughout the Middle East. They are about to teach it throughout the West. The lesson is, resistance to global capitalism is not just futile, it is suicidal. The lesson is, play with identity politics and all that “cultural wars” stuff to your heart’s content, but fuck with global capitalism and we will squash you like a tomato bug.

The Hitlergate Hearings, the fascism hysteria, the Russian mind control paranoia, and the rest of the concerted propaganda campaign we have been subjected to since 2016 (and are about to experience the full force of) are all just parts of a broader effort, not just to crush the “populist” insurgency that began in the West with the Brexit referendum, continued with Trump, and then spread throughout Europe, but to crush all hope for any future rebellions against global capitalism and its ideology, regardless of whether they stem from the Left or Right. (If you think they’re just focused on the neo-nationalists, you obviously haven’t been paying attention to the ongoing demonization of Corbyn, Mélenchon, Sahra Wagenknecht, and assorted other “populist” leftists.) In the old days, this was the part where the king would mount the usurper’s head on a spike to remind everybody who was boss. Nowadays, of course, we do it on television, or the Internet, like when we hung Saddam, or sodomized Gaddafi with a bayonet. They’re not going to do anything like that to Trump, who is, after all, an American usurper, but they are going to make an example of him.

So, get out your popcorn, and your pitchforks, and so on, and get ready to cheer them on as they do. The future of democracy hangs in the balance! And, if you’re on the Twitter, make sure you fulfill your daily Calling-Trump-a-Fascist and Feeding-the-Fascism-Hysteria quotas. And Putin, of course. Don’t forget Putin … and whatever other mindless hysteria the capitalist ruling classes need us to parrot. Trust me, in about two years, when the post-Putin-Nazi celebrations begin, and people are running around in the streets burning effigies, hooting vuvuzelas, and hunting down anyone wearing the wrong hat, you’re not going to want to be mistaken for having been on the “populist” side of history.

    I don’t understand how “Hitler” logically works in with allegations of Russian tampering or the rest of the article.

    Why don’t you focus on the real agenda of those making the allegations if you don’t take them at face value?

    As far as Russia and the former USSR is concerned, there is probably plenty of ground to plow for those looking for past interference in US society. We know that most of their technology was transferred by “friendly elements” in the West. If I was running the FBI, I’d take a close look at the American media and see how much of the cultural Marxism was being exported from Moscow to weaken the fabric of Western society.

    They didn’t do it to their own people.

    Most FBI agents are ordinary people with normal political views, working long hours doing their jobs in the department to which they’ve been assigned. However, their budget allocations are driven by politics, which in turn is driven by the media. FBI leaders are as scared of the media as politicians are. There would be a lot of blowback if they started investigating former still-hooked Soviet moles at the major papers and networks.

    It bears repeating that spies and collaborators are hooked for life, regardless of the collapse of the USSR.

  8. Donald John Trump has a trump card against Robert Mueller, apparently a factor at the moment in behind-the-scenes interplay in Washington

    Last month on 25 October there was a filing with US Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, by an ex-DOJ employee, on a history of crimes involving Robert Mueller in his past role as FBI director

    It describes Mueller’s role in an alleged scheme defrauding millions from a Hillary friend and donor via Mueller’s eventual law firm that hired him post-FBI, whilst two federal judges were bribed, with Mueller getting a share of the loot when he joined the law firm whose crimes he enabled as FBI supremo

    The report speaks of how extradition requests by the USA are being denied, given other governments have files on the Mueller-tied crimes, exposing corruption amongst both US national judges and DOJ; countries including Russia LOL

    Mueller is described as agent of a British criminal group seeking to damage the US presidency, this group a foreign source of USA crime funds involving Mueller

    The DOJ filing also states that key media agitating against the President – Boston Globe, NY Times CNN, UK Guardian – are doing so, in part because these media outlets fear felony indictment in the schemes with Mueller, due to received bribes to create ‘fake news’ for criminal purposes as they worked with Mueller’s law firm

    It was apparently one of the last files Jeff Sessions read before resigning -
    ‘Report on evidence of felonies violating Civil Rights, and bribery by foreign agents, implicating United States Special Counsel Robert S Mueller III as a criminally-tainted agent of foreign & racketeering interests’

  10. I wonder if not the last USA elections made clear that money no longer controls the USA.
    Five billion dollars were spent, in the presidential campaign in total just two.
    The trust of common people in mainstream media seems to be diminishing.

    Since quite a few years in Germany the word Lügenpresse exists, ‘press with, or of, lies’.
    Brussels, and pro EU European governments, are doing anything they can to censor fake news, in anticipation of the 2019 EU elections.
    Anywhere in Europe populist parties get more and more support.

    The present struggle in the world I see as between nationalism and globalism, globalism meaning that money rules the world.
    A globalism that wants open societies, that is, tries to destroy existing cultures through mass immigration.
    If it will succeed, I do not know.

    How difficult it is to destroy cultures maybe now can be seen in the Netherlands where the Black Pete discussion escalates more and more.
    Those that try to abolish Black Pete because he signifies racism and discrimination do not realise how their protests and demonstrations further racism, whatever that is, seldom a definition, and discrimination.
    I’m beginning to wonder if the Rutte government may fall over Black Pete.

    More and more in the Netherlands realise that this is not just over Pete being black, a little black, or coloured, but that w’re in the middle of a cultural battle.
    Is the majority in the Netherlands going to bow to a minority ?

    So, if I were a philantropist trying to make the world better, I’d wonder if my billions spent are well spent.
    If Mueller’s show trials will have the desired effect, or if they will backfire, I’m not sure.
    As I stated before here, Mueller is accused of having perpetrated Lockerby.
    If this is true, do not know.
    But in my view the possibility exists that Mueller himself will be investigated.

    I don’t see how “Hitler” sensibly functions in with charges of Russian altering or whatever is left of the article.

    For what reason don’t you center around the genuine motivation of those creation the charges in the event that you don’t fully trust them?

    To the extent Russia and the previous USSR is worried, there is most likely a lot of ground to furrow for those searching for past obstruction in US society. We realize that the vast majority of their innovation was exchanged by “well disposed components” in the West. In the event that I was running the FBI, I’d investigate the American media and perceive the amount of the social Marxism was being sent out from Moscow to debilitate the texture of Western culture.

    I know of no weapon or process that can address the 360 degree target CJ has identified. The hangHitler problem revolves around a government that conducts its affairs in secret. Hitler has risen falsely or truly because the government is not transparent to Americans and because the Oligarch insiders blackmail each other for the right to screw Americans in back room scheme sessions. Its a government of the crooks, for the crooks and by the crooks no matter how you look at it.

    Maybe a Constitution made by the American, of the American, and for the American is needed but no constitution should survive longer than a 10 year period. At each 10 year constitutional referendum: proposals (words, sentences) not affirmed by at least 65% of then resident Americans would be dropped and what remains would be the constitution.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, and most cops are upright and decent, and so on and so on. But they are servants of an organization, and every individual person is responsible for their choice to serve, and go on serving, an organization.

    Whence comes this “FBI?” Where does Our Glorious Dead Constitution authorize a national police force? (Especially one as given to secrecy and lying as the Fibbies.)

    All FBI agents should be doing honest, productive work instead. This would be a great time for it — “help wanted” signs everywhere. If Trump were at all serious, he’d burn FBI to the ground and piss on the ashes. Right after giving CIA the same treatment, of course.

    FBI whistleblower Coleen Crowley has accused Mueller and Comey of handling the FBI’s end of the 911 coverup by destroying/withholding evidence, intimidating witnesses and the families, etc. There’s also the red herring of the Mueller team’s supposedly inexplicable incompetence in leaving a paper trail exposing their botched cover up Saudi involvement in 911, which was and remains a probable limited hangout obfuscating the overwhelmingly conclusive circumstantial evidence implicating other foreign nationals for this act of war against our country. The question arises whether Russiagate and the rest isn’t a more comprehensive diversion from the massive, de facto theft of our military secrets and hardware; espionage cooperation in all levels so deep it’d bring down the msm and deep state tomorrow; the coverup of 911, of course; and, criminal violations of FISA and our election laws.

    Sadly, it’s now too late to take down Torquemada Mueller. They had to put a stop to his sham witch hunt BEFORE the midterms, when the GOP had both Houses. Now, with the evil D’s set to take back the House, and start issuing their ridiculous subpoenas, Mueller breathes new life. I do not believe those who claim that Mueller is about to wrap up his investigation. With a unlimited budget he’s got two more years, thanks to the voters, to sh*t all over Trump. Just like Michael Myers, he can’t be killed!

  24. Too bad that Mr. Trump, a virgin in the ways of the Swamp at the time of election, didn’t act with more haste and damn the torpedoes. To whit, the first thing the Swamp hit him with was their baseless claim he was a Russian Agent, a Manchurian Candidate. If he had had good loyal advisors around him (which I think he never did) I wonder if he would have taken the Swamp Monsters head on, and met with Mr. Putin out of the gates, to work toward friendly relations between the Super Powers. His base would have supported him, and that’s all that counts.

    Also, in hindsight, I wonder if Mr. Trump ever wishes that he had never run for the office. The trappings of power must be great for his huge ego, and one way or another he will go down in the history books, but trying to run this godforsaken country when you are an outcast to the Swamp, and are unfairly hammered daily by the Fake News media, hardly seems worth it. Especially when you could spend your declining days playing golf at your many courses.

    There is only one way, you must analyse what is presented as news yourself.
    The leading principle here is ‘the truth is consistent’.
    Very important by considering accusations is the question ‘who benefits ?’.
    A very cynical view on the world helps, never think ‘this is impossible, such bad people do not exist’.
    Then, what politicians say is completely unimportant, important is what they do.
    It also helps to learn the way of thinking of others, opponents or not.
    I for one was amazed many times about ideas I considered completely crazy, but I found out these ideas were seen by those who held them as rational and morally justified.
    When idiotic or destructive policies are continued, one must consider the possibility that continuing is the intention.
    One should try never to underestimate anyone, on the other hand sometimes I found out that there was no ingenious plan, just plain stupidity.

    The problem I have with you crazed anti-Trumpers is that you assume anyone who doesn’t go along with your agenda, must see Trump as their hero. Was Hilary your hero? Why didn’t the feds indict Manafort for his crimes years ago? Did you guys even have lives before you became obsessed with Donald Trump? Do you really believe someone as obviously corrupt as Hilary was a better choice? You’re a funny guy.

    –> for EVERY hour spent brainwashing American schoolchildren with holocaust disinformation

    Heh. Logic is not a strong point for you and Wally, is it?

    If those plugs were in those venues then fine, go for it. Multiple times per showing, broadcast, claim, conference, hour and anything else you can think of.

    But that’s not what you’re advocating, is it? No it isn’t. You’re advocating infinite plugs here on unz.com where every single reader has seen the plugs an infinite number of times already.

    Why didn’t the feds indict Manafort for his crimes years ago

    Because they didn’t know about them years ago. Now if you want a good theory to rag on here’s one that is actually FACTUAL;…..the FBI budget for pursing white collar crime was reduced by 90%and the money devoted to “terrorism’ in 2001, following 911…..rotflmao, how convenient!…..for crooks .

    Manafort was found guilty of the following:

    Filing false U.S. individual income tax returns, 2010. Verdict: Guilty
    Filing false U.S. individual income tax returns, 2011. Verdict: Guilty
    Filing false U.S. individual income tax returns, 2012. Verdict: Guilty
    Filing false U.S. individual income tax returns, 2013. Verdict: Guilty
    Filing false U.S. individual income tax returns, 2014. Verdict Guilty
    Failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, 2012. Verdict: Guilty
    Bank fraud ($3.4 million loan). Verdict: Guilty
    Bank fraud ($1 million loan). Verdict: Guilty

    There were 8 other charges involving money laundering thru foreign banks that resulted in a hung jury and were part of Manaforts plea agreement and cooperation with the special prosecutor.

    Are we correct in assuming you have told Steven Spielberg & other Hollywood producers that they’re boring for pushing so many holocaust films; that you’ve addressed your local school board about the outrage of enforcing teaching of the quasi-dogma of holocaustism and forbidding critique or even balanced discussion of the total event; and that you’ve scolded the 52 presidents of Jewish org’s, ADL and AIPAC for calling everyone and his house cat an antisemite when all they really needed to do is drop the a-s bomb once a month or so in a “mop-up” operation?

    And speaking of logic — Wally’s use/abuse of the Unz forum is not really about logic, it’s about access and finance. The core dynamic of Unz.com is to expose the overwhelming control over media of those who preach a distorted version of holocaust, among other things; and to provide a venue presenting those facts and perspectives that media hegemons censor.

    If Wally had the financial wherewithal, media savvy and access of a Spielberg, Foxman, Kristol, Kagan, or Blitzer, he wouldn’t be endlessly, repetitively, even obnoxiously posting Burma-shave signs directing readers to the CODOH forum. Unz.com is one of the few media outlets available to him.

    As for the repetitiveness of Wally’s posts, which I agree is tiresome: I monitor C Span’s Washington Journal, usually all three hours; I take notes and compile data bases. Every frigging day the off-camera female voice recites exactly the same message: “C-Span is brought to you as a public service by your cable provider as a public service . . . ”
    Everybody who watches C Span knows that.
    It’s tiresome, boring and obnoxious to hear that over and over and over.

    Anyone who followed the Lockerby case knows that the convicted Lybian did not do it.
    Already during the trial the father of one of the flight attendants who died explained that the evidence about the detonator was inconsistent, this has later been confirmed.
    The Lybian was in prison in Scotland, a more or less independent part of UK.
    An investigation committee quite soon concluded that he was innocent.
    The relatives of those who died never got an explanation of who, why, on what instructions, shortly before take off in London several VIP’s were taken off the plane.
    Thus the question: who did it ?

    During the trial it emerged that a Mossad man had bought the clothes for the suitcase with the bomb in Cyprus.
    My idea thus was that Israel did it, Israel and Ghadaffi were not friends.

    But recently, on a German website, the Mueller accusation, if it is true, no idea.
    Anyhow, the explanation given was that Mueller’s Lebanon CIA drug trading organisation had been found out by a rival CIA group there, and that this group was on its way to the USA to expose Mueller.
    If all this is true, Mueller must have been quite happy that he became the USA Lockerby investigator.

    Wow, you really can look things up on the internet, can’t you? Paul Manafort was convicted of crimes committed long before he ever met President, or candidate, Trump. In fact, Manafort was recommended to the Trump organization by establishment repubs like the Bush people, no friends of the Trumps. But how integral a piece was Manafort? You have a google machine, but you didn’t look that up, did you? He was Trump’s campaign manager from June 20, 2016 until August 17, 2016. Less than two months.

    So the establishment folks plant a crook in the Trump campaign, as soon as Trump figures him out, he fires the guy, but he’s still guilty by association? Come on, you can do better than that. Disagree with the guy on policy, not on nonsensical stuff like this.

    Refusal to fire on their own people is the conventional wisdom. I prefer the fact that the French army from privates to generals was thoroughly infiltrated by masons then. And the masons were the major overwhelming force behind the revolution.

    Then there is the fact that the bastile was an armoury administrative records headquarters and retirement home for disabled and retired soldiers who did the clerical and administrative work. They couldn’t have really fought if they wanted

    The object was to seize the weapons in the country’s biggest armory. There were only 7 “ prisoners” actually inmates in the bastile at the time. There were severely mentally ill dangerous mental patients. They’d been transferred there when the entire hospital system of the country was closed down. They were deemed too dangerous to themselves and others to be turned out in the streets.

    The bastile was never a real prison for common criminals and ordinary people. It was a military administrative center and armory.

    The only prisoners were aristocrats politicians and high ranking people guilty of malfeasance in office treason , backing overthrows of Kings etc. they lived in spacious 3 and 4 room apartments with servants, nice furniture, good food and their visitors came and went at will, often staying several days at a time

    The conventional version of the taking of the bastille is a triumph of endlessly repeated Masonic fake news, like let them eat cake.

    It’s a play on words. In English, pussy is a term for cat.

    Etymology 1. From a common Germanic word for cat, perhaps ultimately imitative of a sound made to get its attention (compare Arabic بسة). Akin to Dutch poes (“puss, cat”, slang for “vagina”), West Frisian poes, Low German Puus, Puuskatte, Danish pus, dialectal Swedish kattepus, Norwegian pus.

    Here’s a whole essay, by a Huff-Po Pussy Warrior. (Of course, she’s wrong. If you’ve seen older British films, they call their cats puss, or pussy, all the time, probably do today also.)
    “Pussy is a strange word. Cross reference the definition with Merriam-Webster online and you’ll find the number one entry is also “cat.” You’ll need to scroll down a bit before you land on “vulva,” “sexual intercourse,” or “the female partner in sexual intercourse.” But who actually uses “pussy” in conversation about a cat? No one.” https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/where-does-pussy-come-from_us_57fc0968e4b0b6a43034e7ac

    But is this a genuine querry? I.E.,, is it real or fake obtuseness? You do know that the Pussy Hats first appeared for the anti-Trump march?

    FIRST
    you didn’t refute my post about the taking of the Bastille at all with your Masonic propaganda high school level book about the alleged causes of the French Revolution.

    SECOND
    Did you even read my post? I doubt it. My post was about a few days during the revolution, the surrender of the clerical disabled and elderly soldiers who ran the armory and military headquarters and the confiscation of the armory. That confiscation enabled the revolutionary French to invade Germany and the Lowlands and start off 25 years of devasting wars that ranged all over Europe from Russia to Sicily.

    THIRD. Don’t refute posts about a specific event with an irrelevant book about something else.

    I’d tell the history of how Orleans who was also the wealthiest man in France fomented and effected the revolution. He was something like Lenin only with enough money of his own to effect the revolution all by himself.

    But they’re back from the beach and I have to make sure the kids hang up their wetsuits correctly and the girls wash and dry their hair fast so we can get out of here by 2.

    I wish your statement were achievable, but, get ready for a new crop of so-called “holocaust survivors”.
    You see, according to two jewish psychologists, “holocaust transference syndrome” is the concept that “holocaust” dreams and anguish are not only inheritable, but can be transferred to non-related individuals, but only by and to jews. These two jewish psychologists advocate that holocaust “reparations” be extended to these (and future) “survivors” of the so-called “holocaust”.
    It is interesting to note that there are “holocaust survivors” who never set foot outside the United States, were never in Europe, but are still eligible for “holocaust reparations”.

    Both were no diplomats, what they said, often in no uncertain words, they tried to execute, or executed.

    The problem in the comparison of course is caused by what is attributed to Hitler: trying to subjugate the world (how, with 44 million inhabitants), waging agressive wars (nobody ever could define ‘agressive war’), and murdering six million jews, the majority in specially designed death factories.
    A quite different reality is denied, the cozy occupations of the Netherlands, Belgium and France.

    And this all amounts to nothing. Making a small error on an income tax return could result in a verdict of guilty of filing a false income tax return. Big deal. And what exactly were the details of the so called false income tax returns? What was the bank fraud involved in these various loans? If you don’t really know all the details then it looks like a bunch of petty technicalities that the guy was nailed on to me. Maybe you are too ignorant to know about liar loans in which banks actively look the other way and hope you “lie” so that they can make the loan. This is one of the things that led to the 2008 crash. Too many of these loans are what led to the crisis and they were as common as dirt and the government actively promoted it. The idea is to baffle fools with a bunch of trivial crap so they think that something of substance has actually been found. To give you an example of how small a thing it can be to file a false income tax return, failing to report a gambling win, failure to report your garage sale receipts, failure to report sales on ebay or Craigslist, failure to keep accurate records, failure to report fantasy football winnings or prize money because in most cases you are winning about equal to losses. There were no charges filed against the banks that bundled junk loans and sold them as triple A and then were made good on their losses by our government.

    I’ve never known anybody having trouble with that definition. If you send your armed forces into another country with the intent of taking its land by force and killing/subjugating its citizens – this is a war of aggression.
    No matter how you twist it, it isn’t a walk in the park. If I came up to you and hit you in the face – it’d be aggression, and I am quite sure you wouldn’t misinterpret as a friendly greeting.

    Russian citizens quite willing to assist the German Army, and the millions from the USSR fighting Stalin on the German side.

    Of course, the Russians have done it to themselves, and the Germans just walked by. And who exactly fought the Germans, then, and moreover, annihilated them? Who kicked the Germans out of the Soviet Union and took Berlin? Surely not “the millions of Russians” so willing to assist them? The Russians did “assist” them, however – all the way to their graves.

    The problem with reactions with such ignorance is always: reply or not ?
    You’re obviously a hopeless case, but if I do not answer others may think that I’ve no reply.
    So, if you can anywhere find in international law the definition of war of agression, please quote.
    I’m a curious person.

    About the Russians welcoming the German army, and the millions that fought on the German side against the USSR, most of them were forcibly repatriated to mr Stalin, who annihilated them:

    Thank you jilles.

    I am reading “The Sandcastle Girls” by Chris Bohjalian. It’s a novel, but I think it’s soundly based on personal history. Its about the Armenian genocide — Bohjalian is Armenian — and details the incredible suffering of Armenians, mostly women and children, who were force-marched through the desert, tortured, raped, starved — forms of inhumanity not even the British propagandists of German brutality could make up.

    Germans were Turkey’s ally in the time of the Armenian genocide & WWI, but Bohjalian treats Germans sympathetically. In fact, a crucial element of the book’s plot revolves around photos (taken on glass plates) of Armenian deportees in their naked, starved, brutalized state, taken by German soldier/engineers at one or another of the points where the Turks collected Armenians before their forced trek to “settlement” in Deir Ezor.

    That situation is based on fact: http://www.armenian-genocide.org/photo_wegner.html

    Bohjalian’s novel is impressive in that it is the first, perhaps only book I have read that provides a graphic depiction of the suffering of anyone other than Jews. In fact, the novel’s narrator explains that her goal is to understand what happened to her Armenian family and her people.

    This is one of my own pet peeves about the incessant holocaust narrative: it has sucked all of the oxygen out of every other nation’s and people’s history.

    For me, this is personal: my Dad was in WWII, was injured and had a pretty hard time. No one ever talked about any of it. Several years after he had died, a relative told me how Dad had been injured. He was a sailor, tasked with lowering the gate on a landing craft for soldiers to go ashore near Palermo. This happened — that happened — something else happened –. Bohjalian includes a very similar scene in “The Sandcastle Girls.” I have read it three or four time. It feels like the first time I have been able to understand what Dad and all those other young men went through. I sure wish I had known before he was in the ground.

    It is so extremely outrageous that my Father’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren are being so completely misinformed about their own history. It is child abuse and culture-cide, nothing less.

    It’s curious that your link to the alleged ‘Armenian genocide’ provides no proof of such a ‘genocide’, which you say is fact.
    Certainly there was a civil war with both Turks & Armenians being killed, but as for the claimed ’1.5M Armenians’, I see no such proof whatsoever. Why is that?

    Can you help me find that proof?
    Can you direct me to verifiable forensic studies?
    Can you direct me to the huge physical remains that would certainly exist if true?
    If this alleged ‘genocide’ is established & proven, then why is free speech about it illegal in some countries?

    Thanks.

    This asserted Armenian genocide is one of the things that bore me more and more.
    Why do not interested people take the trouble to read a few books ?
    Why is it so difficult to understand that after the kingdom of Armenia declared war on the Ottoman empire the Armenians living just south of the Armenian Ottoman border grabbed their chance to try to join their region to Armenia ?
    Why does nobody take the trouble to look at the map of the Treaty of Sèvres 1921 where a large Armenian state was projected through all of E Anatolia, to the projected Syrian border ?
    Why does nobody understand that, had this christian Armenian country become reality, it had been a great help for the future Israel ?
    Why does nobody understand that for this reason jew Morgenthau, USA ambassador in Istanbul, wrote propaganda for the asserted genocide into deep in the thirties ?
    This time I do not specify the books, nobody is going to read them.

    ‘Wars without international legality (i.e. not out of self-defense nor sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council) can be considered wars of aggression…’

    And this…

    ‘War is essentially an evil thing. Its consequences are not confined to the belligerent states alone, but affect the whole world.

    To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.’

    You have demonstrated quite plainly you have no reply worthy of the name. Yes, there were traitors, collaborators and also emigres that fought on the Hitler’s side. Many were indeed repatriated by the Allies to the Soviet Union where the received the punishment they amply deserved.

    However, you failed to answer my question: Who fought and defeated the Germans as well as their assorted allies (Italians, Hungarians, Romanians) if the Russians were so welcoming and cooperative? The Germans themselves didn’t find them to be so. And the outcome of the war speaks for itself. Or don’t you know what it was?

    WWII was won by Russian blood and western industrial production.
    Who won, in any case militarily; FDR and Stalin.
    If your suggestion is that USA and Russian people wanted war, I must disappoint you.
    Beard demonstrates quite clearly that FDR needed some seven years, and even Pearl Harbour, to bring the USA people into war mood.
    About the USSR, if you have the idea that the Russian people wanted war, even less.
    However, Stalin wanted war, Hitler knew this, attacked defensively.
    Even then the Russian people did not sacrifice their lives willingly, read, alas the book just exists in Dutch and Russian, how Red Army officers sent their men into certain death.
    Russian atrocities in WWII are well described, this of course escalated.
    Stalin dropped partisan fighters behind German lines, both partisans and Germans treated villagers cruelly.
    All this of course helped in creating an anti German attitude, plus the propaganda of Ilja Ehrenburg ‘kill, kill, kill’.

    Antony Sutton is considered a nutcase…don’t have much time here for nutters but look up who flew the first scramjet engine in 1991 and who invited Nasa to participate…in effect a technology transfer from Russia to Nasa…here’s just one nasa paper…

    Under a contract with NASA, a joint Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM) and NASA team recently conducted the fourth flight test of a dual-mode scramjet aboard the CIAM Hypersonic Flying Laboratory,“Kholod.” With an aim test Mach 6.5 objective, the successful launch was conducted at the Sary Shagan test range in central Kazakhstan on February 12, 1998.’

    Even given this technolgy help the US is nowhere near achieving a production scramjet engine, while Russia is producing the scramjet powered Zirkon missile and Avangard boost glide vehicle…

    US is still buying Russian rocket engines and getting rides to the ISS [Russian tech...it's core is the Mir 2]…

    .
    You head is full of such garbage, it’s unbelievable. Naturally, only in Russia Russian blood flows independently outside of the bodies of the Russian people, and there were no people with minds, no emotions, no attitudes – this was simply blood, which was dropped on the Germans from the sky or what? See how absurd your words are when one is trying to put them in the context of reality?

    You’d say any idiocy, you’d twist and turn, and contort, and stand on your head, because you wouldn’t admit a simple fact staring you in the face – that the Russian people fought for their country with determination and courage.

    The Western industrial production contributed some but not much. Not to mention, it didn’t just drop from the sky or work its magic – to have an effect, it had to be delivered to the right place in the right time and it had to be appropriately used by people who knew what they were doing.

    About the USSR, if you have the idea that the Russian people wanted war, even less.

    You are going to tell me how the Russian people didn’t want war? My mother’s family is from Stalingrad, my dear friend, and it lost all men, every single one of them in that war. That war was forced upon us, and we fought it because we had to.

    attacked defensively

    Hitler attacked Russia three weeks before Stalin’s planned attack.

    I think that what you are referring to is better described as a pre-emptive invasion and you’d need solid evidence to justify such a thing on moral and legal grounds. I’m not arguing the case one way or another because I simply don’t know the truth. The term defensive attack does seem like a contradiction in terms though.

    Sure thing, simple enough – you starve a million people to death, the whole city, and you kill millions more just because you imagined that someone was going to attack you. There is not a single piece of evidence of “a planned attack” and plenty to show exactly the reverse – that Stalin realized that the Soviet Union wasn’t ready to stand up to Germany in a war and was extra careful not to give them a pretext to attack. He was right – it took us more than two years to get up to speed and start beating the crap out of them. But everybody in the country realized that the Nazi Germany was going to attack sooner or later – the hope was it’d be later.

    The Germans knew that perfectly well, for they had excellent intelligence. They just underestimated our stamina and the desire to resist. In other words, they got too soft dealing with you Europeans and they assumed a war in Russia would be the same walk in a park as they operations in Europe were.

    Well, then Germany shouldn’t complain – whatever was done to it in that war, was done in response not to some “planned attack” to the actual one. Have a nice day.
