    Iran’s radical Marxist cult Mohajedeen e Khalq, better known by its acronym MEK, is somewhat reminiscent of the Israel Lobby’s American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in that it operates somewhat in the shadows and is nevertheless able to punch well beyond its weight by manipulating politicians and understanding how American government functions on its...

    Hi R.T.W.,

    Agreed on Rudy G. as a top ranked (Roman Catholic) "creep."

    There is another less well-known "creep" to the dumb goyim who might have well served as another "world class creep" in your writing.

    Remember Marc Rich, the high-rolling jailbird pardoned by POT(Z)USA "Slick Willie" Clinton? He's the Jew who brokered oil & weapons to Israel's "existential" enemy, Iran. Refer below WSJ column's "different angle" on Rich?

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB982885815892990443

    Thanks, R.T.W.!

    Not contributing to Rupert Murdoch’s wallet (WSJ paywall) … bash the Jews all you like Chuck, there’s criminals aplenty there, Marc Rich is excellent example but without so-called ‘Christian’ support, e.g. Bush, Gates and company, or these days Mike Pompeo and associated morons, Zionism wouldn’t be/couldn’t be nearly so malignant. In any case criminals are endemic to society regardless of ethnicity or faith and I’m not one to get hung up in that aspect. It’s the criminals are the problem, not whether they are Mormons, Jews, or for that matter, hairy fishnuts or Moonies.

    Above, am honored to get your approval, R.T.W. Thank you!

    Ronald Thomas West evidently tried to refresh my memory & wrote:
    "without so-called ‘Christian’ support, e.g. Bush, Gates and company, or these days Mike Pompeo and associated morons, Zionism wouldn’t be/couldn’t be nearly so malignant."

    Above, (zZigh) it took a lot of Jewish Lobby & billionaire bribe-money for Zionism to become so malignantly popular with the ZUS Christians named above, along with Legions of "moronic" others since the start of the 20th Century.

    (zzZigh) To conclude R.T.W. opined:
    "It's the criminals are the problem, not whether they are Mormons, Jew's, or for that matter, hairy fishnets or Moonies."

    Thanks very much for writing so plain-spoken (above) resulting in my now knowing where you are coming from! (zzzZigh)

    Hi Ronald Thomas West,

    Fascinating is your review of Menashe's "Profits of War."

    As incompetent with "copy & paste" action, and while at Allentown's Da Vinci Center, I will kop-out & selfishly cut-to-the-bone, expose my "take."

    1. Since the killing of JFK, I see elite US Zionist Jews as having great influence upon presidential elections.

    2. As the Iranian hostage crisis dragged on, with great MSM & subsequent public pressure upon President Jimmy Carter to do something, he tried with futility what became known as "The Debacle in the Desert."
    (For me, I have some admiration for PreZIdent Carter for his restraint & not launching an awful bombing attack upon Teheran and gain VOTES)

    (Zigh)

    3. I intuit Carter was too genuinely committed to the rather practical Camp David Peace agreement and the long-range Israeli "Greater Israel" plan required America to have the tough conservative (?) talking Ronald Reagan as president.

    4. With the Carter administration history, the Zio-Republicans were in a great position to allow the survival of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and such temporary distortion came with the huge Zionist "bonus" of having a nine (9) year savage war between Iraq and Iran. Of course, ZUS helped each side!

    (Zigh)

    I have an inexplicable sense that Ben Menashe's experienced-recording of what he knew was taboo for general dumb goyim knowledge, but having all of it appear availably in print did not ruffle anyone in Tel Aviv, London, & D.C.

    Regret I dodged the meat in your valuable article, R.T.of the Wild West.!

    P.S. We are fucked to a point where the top of our government can do shit like below, and come out smelling like a Cleome hasslerana.

    http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/05/29/563309/US-goes-to-Security-Council-to-defend-innocent-Israeli-civilians

    Well, it’s good you appreciated the article on Menashe … but back on topic I’d really like it if people read my article on MeK. I’d interviewed MeK people personally and went to considerable length to develop their story and it’s not pretty. Some of what I’d written overlaps Phil’s article (the creep Giuliani is to be found wherever neocon world class crimes are perpetrated) but includes the human elements and a bit different angle on their history. At the time my piece had been written (2013) only 250 MeK rank and file had been evacuated from Iraq to Albania. That larger rank and file have been hostage to the USA and Israel but most of all hostage to the narcissism of its leadership.

    Hi Ronald Thomas West,

    Hi R.T.W.,

    Am free from work now, but must mow lawn.

    Am still digesting Menashe's being described as a "rogue Israeli agent," and the fact that Zio-approved Newsweek covered Mr. Parry's possibly explosive article.

    Weird.

    After grass cut & a too large rose bush trimmed, I should be objectively prepared to read your article, contemplate, & offer a response.

    F.y.i., since Newsweek ran a magazine-cover depicting Slobodon Milosevic as "The Face of Evil," I disdain that rag. Thanks!

    P.S. As you know, staying square with sophisticated methods of Mossad / CIA deception is challenging, as such is meant to be.

    Hi Ronald Thomas West,

    Fascinating is your review of Menashe's "Profits of War."

    As incompetent with "copy & paste" action, and while at Allentown's Da Vinci Center, I will kop-out & selfishly cut-to-the-bone, expose my "take."

    1. Since the killing of JFK, I see elite US Zionist Jews as having great influence upon presidential elections.

    2. As the Iranian hostage crisis dragged on, with great MSM & subsequent public pressure upon President Jimmy Carter to do something, he tried with futility what became known as "The Debacle in the Desert."
    (For me, I have some admiration for PreZIdent Carter for his restraint & not launching an awful bombing attack upon Teheran and gain VOTES)

    (Zigh)

    3. I intuit Carter was too genuinely committed to the rather practical Camp David Peace agreement and the long-range Israeli "Greater Israel" plan required America to have the tough conservative (?) talking Ronald Reagan as president.

    4. With the Carter administration history, the Zio-Republicans were in a great position to allow the survival of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and such temporary distortion came with the huge Zionist "bonus" of having a nine (9) year savage war between Iraq and Iran. Of course, ZUS helped each side!

    (Zigh)

    I have an inexplicable sense that Ben Menashe's experienced-recording of what he knew was taboo for general dumb goyim knowledge, but having all of it appear availably in print did not ruffle anyone in Tel Aviv, London, & D.C.

    Regret I dodged the meat in your valuable article, R.T.of the Wild West.!

    Rogue Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben Menashe blew the whistle (eye witness to GHWB present at Paris), another source was the SR-71 Blackbird pilot who flew Bush to Paris somehow got crossed up with his ‘seniors’ and gave up the fact he’d provided the transport. That 2nd is off the top of my head.

    The recently deceased Robert Parry was covering Iran-Contra and had written about Ben Menashe for Newsweek and Ben Menashe is likely how he was put onto the ‘October Surprise’ story but I’ve since come to the conclusion Parry was a limited hangout. In any case when Ben Menashe published his memoir naming GHWB and Robert Gates as October Surprise principals, Newsweek immediately turned on him, he was no longer a credible witness according to mainstream-

    I am not defending Rajoy. I am just pointing out the obvious. Racist and supremacist acts are the way they are, no matter who is committing them.

    The fact that Rajoy is doing wrong does not mean the Catalan supremacist voters are doing right. They are both doing wrong. And treating fellow human beings as inferior beasts is wrong, no matter who is doing it. And the Catalan politicians are doing and their voters are supporting it.

    If you believe in fair treatment to everyone then you cannot support a supremacist Catalan movement which is treating other human beings as inferior beasts instead of persons with the same dignity as them.

    Maybe they should have allowed investiture of Puigdemont, and avoided the more hardline and reactionary replacement due to Rajoy’s juvenile and recalcitrant behavior. Why would anyone be surprised if Rajoy’s militancy produced a mirror image of himself? But I am not convinced ‘the Catalan supremacist voters’ are any less criminal than Spanish voters at large, actually they are probably more innocent; for the very fact of the history of repression stems from the Spanish side. If what Rajoy is doing is wrong, does not Rajoy’s behaviors make the voters who’ve kept Rajoy in power at least as criminal? And what of the growing perception throughout Europe’s judiciary that Pablo Llarna is something like a hybrid of a joke and horror story and Rajoy’s lap-dog? Are the consistent judicial victories of the exiled Catalans proof Spain’s courts are right and the courts of Belgium, Scotland, Germany and Switzerland are all wrong? I know it is difficult to look past one’s own cultural prejudices but I can assure you I have met many fine Catalan people who are pro-independence and I do not consider them to be criminal in any way.

    “Bestias con forma humana que destilan odio”
    En su artículo, lo explicó con estas palabras: “Ahora miras a tu país y vuelves a ver hablar a las bestias. Pero son de otro tipo. Carroñeras, víboras, hienas. Bestias con forma humana, que destilan odio. Un odio perturbado, nauseabundo, como de dentadura postiza con verdín, contra todo lo que representa la lengua”.

    This is the current Catalan separatist president writing. Change Spaniard and put any other human group name and you would call any person writing this a supremacist. If you still believe this is center right, by these standards nobody could ever be extreme right, imho.

    It was Rajoy ‘kicked the ball forward’ when it came to radicalizing the Catalans, when he sabotaged the agreement worked out between Barcelona and Madrid (around 2010 I recall) and in any case, I suppose you believe Rajoy’s hero Francisco Franco was benign like a teddy bear in Catalan history.

    Now, tell me this: How is it Catalan politicians are prosecuted and jailed but identified criminal fascists with program to undermine Spain’s democracy have never been brought to trial under Rajoy? Is it because they are Francoists? How is it “So far, all accusations pertaining to this group have been in vain, even though Article 22 of the Spanish Constitution and Article 515 of the Penal Code prohibit secret associations”

    “I agree to join the National Organization of the Anvil, assuming the fight for the kingdom of Christ in Spain as the most important activity in my life. I swear to keep the existence of the organization absolutely secret, as well as its members, actions and strategies. I also swear to obey its commands and act responsibly as a leader when told to do so. As a Christian knight I pledge to defend, even at the expense of my own life, this tool that God has given us to establish his kingdom on Earth.”

    The witness continues: “I’m not the first one to come out of this with serious pathological conditions, and I won’t be the last. It’s a destructive political-religious organization that acts like a real mafia. They broke my spirit as soon as they realized that I was starting to distance myself. They prepared to ambush me during the María Reina ceremony, one of the obligatory yearly rituals along with the Cristo Rey (Christ the King) and the ritual of loyalty to the pope and its founder, Ramón Plata. They humiliated me, they made fun of my parents and spread rumors that I did drugs and went whoring. It was a lie, but my girlfriend, who was in Pre, the phase that comes before being admitted to the sect, dumped me and my whole world came crashing down.”

    “In theory, they accept the social doctrine of the Catholic Church, which thinks that, despite its flaws, democracy is a more just system than others. But we also studied Jean Ousset’s book Pour qu’Il règne, in which he argues that a ruling politician gets his legitimacy directly from God, and thus he must only answer to the Supreme Maker. It’s a thesis comparable to Italian fascism and Spanish National Catholicism, whereby the leader only answers to God and history for his actions. They use democracy and people to achieve its ends.

  • “As in Spain, the Left has won in Portugal. Almost all the parties of note that actually win votes are Left or Center-Left”

    Perhaps ‘somewhat true’ of Spain ten or more years ago; but since, getting the über-conservative, corrupt, Popular Party out of control in Spain has proved almost impossible until only recently, like trying wash tar off your hands with dish soap. Spain is deeply divided, the Spanish Civil War never really resolved politically and the death of Franco resulting in re-establishment of the monarchy, albeit a ‘parliamentary constitutional monarchy’ simply saw the Spanish State’s divisions swept under the rug.

    Catalonia remained a Republican sympathetic entity (where Catalan nationalism is somewhat fused with, or is a branch of, the Republican cause), was repressed severely under Franco, and today’s Spanish regional crisis reflects a strong and ongoing (not merely lingering) resentment at a lack of political opportunity for self-determination. It should be noted in this context it was the Popular Party’s Rajoy sabotaged an agreement for larger autonomy in Catalonia, further alienating and radicalizing Catalans, leading to the present political impasse.

    If the right-wing Popular Party’s (the party of Franco’s legacy) Manuel Rajoy is forced out as Prime Minister with a Socialist no-confidence motion pending in Spanish parliament as I write this, and snap elections are called, the center-right Cuidadanos party will return with the largest block in Spain’s national parliament. The Popular Party is tarred as hopelessly corrupt as well as ham-handed [crude and arrogant] in its’ handling of the Catalan crisis and the Socialists are perceived as both; corrupt and ineffective.

    Insofar as the Catalan separatist parties, the Catalan nationalists, however in partnership with the hard left Republicans, are more or less a center-right majority (in Catalonia.)

    Spain’s political demographic has undergone much change over the past ten years, since the Socialists had been relegated to barking from the back-bench. My time living in Catalonia was about the time there began a shift away from the Socialists and the left:

  • Jesus saying ‘the truth will make you free’ notwithstanding, The Saker should recall he lives in, and preaches from, a liberal democracy where the more apropos position might be Oscar Wilde’s ‘truth is seldom pure and never simple.’

    The point with this preceding is, ‘truth’ is as multifaceted and malleable as reality and there are many realities, each embracing (or denying, as the case may be) their respective ‘truth.’ One of those ‘truths’ could be Iran’s ayatollahs need the madman Netanyahu’s animus as much as he needs theirs; to keep their respective grips on power, a necessarily symbiotic relationship of necrotic politics as it were.

    There is a large segment of Iranian society that is absolutely NOT in love with rule by the mullahs, even while tacitly supporting them; for the facts of Iran’s complicated history with the West. Were these people ever to be freed from the constraints imposed by that history, i.e. the USA (particularly) injecting even so little as what amounts to aroma of geopolitical flatulence (supportive noises) into any political dispute with the governing theocratic republican principles, we might see a different political configuration altogether emerge in Iran.

    The article is too cocksure, too preachy. I expect this aspect extends to Saker’s likely mistaken idea the ‘Atlanticists’ are secure in Russia (more so than matches the actuality.) To those, example given, who propose Medvedev is a committed Atlanticist in some simplistic context would be an insult to the man’s intelligence; after-all, it was then President Dimitry Medvedev ordered the military response to Georgia’s initiating the South Ossetia aggression when Putin was sitting beside Bush at the China Olympics – and I recall then Prime Minister Putin’s comment concerning President Medvedev during that period: “I just trust him.”

    Any ‘Atlanticism’ attributed to Medvedev (and many more in Russia) that would look to Europe as opposed to Asia (considering USA is culturally Europe or European derived) is certainly tempered with a healthy dose of reality; an understanding ‘Atlanticism’ itself is (at least in the present) hopelessly compromised. I expect this is why Medvedev is willing to work with Putin as a reliable partner (and vice-versa.) Putin himself has made many ‘Atlanticist’ noises, if tempered in a context of wishing he could find a reliable partner in the West (which he obviously cannot.) ‘Truth is seldom pure and never simple.’

  • The mixed race question is important, since, as seems likely given recent archaeological finds, the Lost Colonists merged with Native American tribes in eastern North Carolina, who in turn merged with the growing African American populations around them (this seems true of the Lumbee as well, who have European and West African haplotypes and only, at most, a tiny percentage of Native American gene types, though direct tribe members did not participate in the study). By the late 19th century, all people of color in NC (setting aside the remnant Cherokee tribe in the mountains and the Lumbee who were granted Indian status based on Democratic politics of the 1880s) were classified by law as African American. Marriage with whites was forbidden. Therefore, if there are surviving Lost Colonist genes, they are within today’s African American community. So if Virginia Dare survived and had children, her descendants today are black. Whatever one thinks of American race issues, this does feel a little ironic, does it not?

    Meanwhile Thomas Paine couldn’t get his views aired in the same public space today…

    “The Deist needs none of those tricks and shows called miracles to confirm his faith, for what can be a greater miracle than the creation itself, and his own existence? There is a happiness in Deism, when rightly understood, that is not to be found in any other system of religion. All other systems have something in them that either shock our reason, or are repugnant to it, and man, if he thinks at all, must stifle his reason in order to force himself to believe them. But in Deism our reason and our belief become happily united. The wonderful structure of the universe, and everything we behold in the system of the creation, prove to us, far better than books can do, the existence of a God, and at the same time proclaim His attributes. It is by the exercise of our reason that we are enabled to contemplate God in His works, and imitate Him in His ways. When we see His care and goodness extended over all His creatures, it teaches us our duty toward each other, while it calls forth our gratitude to Him.”

As military leader, in absence of declaration of war, he should be able to use the military for sole purpose of defensive measures, held well short of taking general offensive measures.

  • The ignorance of a demonstrable misreading of American history in this statement is profound…

    Essentially, the Neoconservatives were “unpatriotic” in the sense that they placed their zealously globalist values of equality and liberal democracy ahead of their allegiance to their country, or, rather, converted their allegiance to their country into a kind of “world faith” which trumpeted disconnected “ideas” and airy “propositions” over the concrete history of the American experience, itself.

    The revolution was betrayed in 1791 when the elites were faced with paying the 13 billion in 1770s French money the founders borrowed from France to pay for the revolution *

    How to pay this debt?????

    Auctions of confiscated Tory or alleged Tory property? Never, Tory property belonged to whoever could grab it.

    Property tax, income tax, sales tax, luxury tax like the English window and carriage tax?

    Horrors no Those taxes would have a disparate impact on the coastal elites. They owned a lot of property. They had the high incomes. The bought more stuff and more expensive stuff.

    Where or where would the money come from???

    Out in the frontier, fighting off the Indians, are these mostly Scot lowlife trash. They grow a lot of corn tobacco and other things but there are no roads to get high volune cash crops to market.

    The Scots made use of the corn and clean water to make whiskey which is easier to transport through the wilderness.

    Hamilton the usurer figured out a way to make the frontiers men pay if the French loan, a tax in their whisky. It was the first federal tax.

    Washington, the Democrat Jefferson Madison and the rest of the wealthy agreed. It was great for them, no taxes on the wealthiest.

    So Washington led more troops than he ever led against either the English or the French and Indians 6 years after the end of the revolution Washington attacked the very frontiersmen who fought against the English

    The whiskey rebels were defeated many were hanged. And so the American tradition of the working middle class paid all the taxes while the elites paid minimum tax began

    Colonel Bacevich is only playing the devil's advocate, and, in a diplomatic manner, showing the contradictions between the "official" military agenda and the reality of today's world.

    If the US was ruled with the interests of its people and servicemen in mind, it would not be engaged in endless and unwinnable wars. But the NeoCons imperial elite don't care, as they don't have skin in the game, unlike the military (Colonel Bacevich lost his only son in Iraq).

    The fate of an Empire is demise, because it is ruled by the few, who don't care about reality, until this reality engulfs them.
    Patriots try to stop such demise by the modest , realistic means available to them: enlightening people.

    Well, Iris, in the geopolitical parlance called ‘realpolitic’, the term ‘diplomatic’ could approximate ‘white lie.’ Are there ‘shades of white’? If you were to dig behind the cover Colonel Bacevich provides to the generals, example given is General Patreaus, the white lie gets pretty dark:

    Ronald, Christ stated plainly that He has no concord with Belial. That “His”light has no concord with darkness.

    That being said- what makes you think that Constantine’s Roman Empire synthesis of paganism/Catholicism is actually representative of Christianity? It’s architectural and musical glories notwithstanding- it is plainly unscriptural!
    Transubstantiation, Mariology, unmarried priests are an elaborate man made labyrinth of “myths.”

    However, the historical Jesus is real. You and l can only learn about Him through Gods word. It is the armor of God and the sword of His spirit. It is sharper than a two-edged sword and able to accomplish what God wants it to.

    In this day and age, when white people in particular have traded in their identity as Christian absolute believers in an un-changing Godhead; in exchange for the ever shifting alliances of politics- it is no wonder that the moral relativistic center cannot hold and an anomic, drugged society suffers from ever frequent outbursts of paroxysms of rage-in the form of school shootings, corruption in high places and merciless fraudulent wars for lucre.

    The choice is stark:
    The Absolute unchanging truth, transcendent- a free gift received by grace and faith.

    Or...

    Materialism, hedonism, Nature red in tooth and claw, rationalized by moral relativity.

    Remember, Heaven is heirarchical and exclusive......Hell is egalitarian and has open boarders!

    So who will you choose to serve:

    Jesus -who went to the cruel cross WILLINGLY ( l am a Baptist- we yell..lol)
    Or...

    Mammon...and serve at the alter of the
    ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.

    History is a simple story- for simple stupid mankind.
    And......man’s passions never change. There’s no need for a generational update to the “plot”

    If I have it right that is an intentional misdirection from Jesus' wise words.

    My take would be cannibalism and torture are at odds with everything he’d actually taught. When Constantine turned Christianity into the Roman empire’s state religion, his political appointments (bishops) saw that St Paul’s ideas displaced the historical Jesus whose authentic teachings were added to, perverted and finally, buried. Christianity as we mostly know it today is a Roman State legacy having little to do with the historical Jesus. That’s how I see it.

    We are told that all the missiles hit their targets, that seventy percent were shot down by Soviet-era anti-aircraft defenses, and everything between. I wish someone with the knowledge to do so would say what if anything was shot down by what, what the incoming missiles were, and so on. Soviet weaponry was lousy almost across the board and across decades. If the seventy-percent figure is correct, which I extremely doubt, US effectiveness has gone backward.

    “Soviet era” is a bit of propaganda coming from the Russian side, technically correct in that the system the Syrians are recently in possession of are based on model that had been developed in Soviet era but overlooking multiple upgrades since. It is these ‘modernized’ units are what had been recently provided to Syrian forces and the S-1 is a new beast:

    &

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pantsir-S1#Pantsir-SA

    Noteworthy is, this is the system that would be required to protect the longer range S-300 Russia is now saying the Syrians could be given on account of the USA’s recent ‘adventure.’ So part one of the S-300 is already in place. Also it is noteworthy that, since the Israelis’ recently lost the F-15, they seem to have fallen back to a more distant air to ground missile launch tactic (no bombing.)

    One thing I don’t see talked about is the why of the missiles tactical route; where the Russian fleet has been positioned between Syria and the NATO fleet … and there was no overflight of the Russian fleet whose position prevented ship launches (presuming launches headed towards the Russian fleet would have demanded immediate engagement by the Russian side as a fleet protection precaution.)

  • The most important lesson from this latest development is that there are still some people in key positions in the US who did what had to be done to avoid a catastrophic escalation in Syria. The question now is how long can these “sane forces” (for lack of a better identifier) continue to resist the “crazies”?

    It’s a mistake to think that are any genuinely “sane forces” in Trump’s inner cabal. Mattis, Dunford the the other “Generals”, e.g., Votel (CENTCOM), Scaparrotti (EUCOM) are all in to the Global Cop Gorilla model.

    Mattis is no doubt reluctant about Syria for tactical reasons only. As he explicitly demonstrated in his overview the National Security Strategy, he’s fully invested in a hyper-militarized foreign policy unconstrained by global multi-polar reality, international law or taxpayer dollars.

    There may be distinctions in how to deal with Syria in real-time with that crew, but strategically, those are distinctions without a real difference. Everyone whispering sweet militarist nothings into Trump’s ear wants the U.S. to aggressively play in the Hegemonic Sandbox with the War Machine as their favorite toy.

    With that gaggle of Neocon Nitwits seducing Trump into militarized stupidity, candidate Trump the realist, if he still actually exists and can reassert himself, may be the only sane (even if deeply flawed) actor on the stage.

    My take would be Mattis is not actually sane, if he were holding back, there should be an ulterior reason, for instance he’s not yet comfortable with something, example given, ‘The Donald’ might balk at a nuclear launch, whereas a President Pence would not.

    Just now a revolver should be in the illustration, and change it back to an automatic when Trump has been disposed of by the hardcore Christian Zionists and PNAC types surrounding him.

On the other hand, I do believe there was a historical Jesus that was a remarkable man, but there is a world (or universe) of difference between the man and the mythology. Here’s some of my thoughts on the matter:

    Ronald, Christ stated plainly that He has no concord with Belial. That “His”light has no concord with darkness.

    That being said- what makes you think that Constantine’s Roman Empire synthesis of paganism/Catholicism is actually representative of Christianity? It’s architectural and musical glories notwithstanding- it is plainly unscriptural!
    Transubstantiation, Mariology, unmarried priests are an elaborate man made labyrinth of “myths.”

    However, the historical Jesus is real. You and l can only learn about Him through Gods word. It is the armor of God and the sword of His spirit. It is sharper than a two-edged sword and able to accomplish what God wants it to.

    In this day and age, when white people in particular have traded in their identity as Christian absolute believers in an un-changing Godhead; in exchange for the ever shifting alliances of politics- it is no wonder that the moral relativistic center cannot hold and an anomic, drugged society suffers from ever frequent outbursts of paroxysms of rage-in the form of school shootings, corruption in high places and merciless fraudulent wars for lucre.

    The choice is stark:
    The Absolute unchanging truth, transcendent- a free gift received by grace and faith.

    Or...

    Materialism, hedonism, Nature red in tooth and claw, rationalized by moral relativity.

    Remember, Heaven is heirarchical and exclusive......Hell is egalitarian and has open boarders!

    So who will you choose to serve:

    Jesus -who went to the cruel cross WILLINGLY ( l am a Baptist- we yell..lol)
    Or...

    Mammon...and serve at the alter of the
    ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.

    Trump's biggest mistake was choosing Mike Pence Mr. Ziocon Deep State as his running mate. His second biggest mistake was putting Pence in charge of the transition team that put together the cabinet. Pence saturated the Trump cabinet with his fellow Ziocons(and former Trump haters) like Nikki Haley, John Bolton, Rod Rosenstein, McMaster, Mike Pompeo, and all the Cohens from Wall Street to continue looting the treasury. I believe he also played a big hand in convincing Trump to keep Ryan, despite everything Ryan did to Trump during the campaign, they have a tight bond through their deep Christian faith. Pence also got rid of Chris Christie, though that was in deference to Jared Kushner.

    I think Pence has been pulling a soft coup since Day 1. He wants to be POTUS, not VPOTUS. He's Francis Underwood minus the murderous zeal.

  • “Hope springs eternal” would be the cynical folk wisdom. FYI we haven’t had a functioning constitution since the National Security Act of 1947 brought this nation under color of law, but the IC types wouldn’t have you know that. Too tough to square the idea you’d never have had your CIA career in a world where the FISA court couldn’t exist either.

    Consortium News many sops tossed to ‘realpolitik’ where false narrative is attacked with alternative false narrative, example given, drunk Ukrainian soldiers supposedly downing MH 17 with a BUK as opposed to Kiev’s Interior Ministry behind the Ukrainian combat jet that actually brought down MH 17, poisons everything (trust issues) spewed from that news service.

    The realpolitik ‘face saving’ exit/offer implied in the Consortium News narrative where Russia doesn’t have to confront the West with Ukraine’s (and by implication the western intelligence agencies) premeditated murder of 300 innocents does truth no favors.

    Time to grow up and face reality. Realpolitik is dead; the caliber of ‘statesman’ required for these finessed geopolitical lies to function no longer exist on the Western side, and the Russians (I believe) are beginning to understand there is no agreement can be made behind closed doors that will hold up; as opposed to experiencing a backstabbing (like NATO not moving east.)

    Back on topic; the National Security Act of 1947 and the USA’s constitution are mutually exclusive concepts, where you have a Chief Justice appoints members of our FISA Court, er, nix that, let’s call a spade a spade, it’s a Star Chamber. There is no constitution to uphold, no matter well intended self deceits. There will be no constitutional crisis, only a workaround to pretend a constitution still exists:

    Normally I enjoy Israel Shamir's reporting. However, in this piece he writes as a military analyst, which he is not.

    On the one hand there is nothing to be gained by using satire to describe the recent strike on Syria. There is nothing funny about it politically or militarily.

    Next, it has already been reported on other sites that the Syrian military hardware used to deflect the large majority of US missiles has been heavily upgraded to support better responses even when using rather dated missile technology.

    Israel Shamir has also recently written in other pieces that Putin has little liking for Isreal's Netanayu and that in all of the meetings the two had, the Israeli prime minister received very little to nothing as Putin ignored his requests.

    It has also been reported that Syria will receive the upgraded S-300 missile systems. And it is expected they will be moved into the hands of Syrian troops rather quickly.

    In terms of US hardware, there is really no such thing as "old" as much of the hardware is junk in any case. Since the Vietnam Conflict, US military suppliers have attained a very well deserved reputation for producing low quality weaponry with only a few exceptions withstanding (ie: F-16). In fact, all of the recent, major US military systems that have been placed into operations or trial-testing have proven to be less than adequate for their tasks.

    Finally, quite a number of military analysts have already demonstrated that Russian missile technology is, at the minimum, ten years in advance of similar US technology. Right now there is no contest.

    The Russians know how to build exceptional equipment at a fraction of the cost that the US spends on similar equipment. And they will continue to do so.

    This is the single reason that the US did not go for the throat in this recent attack as foolish as it was. What we have now is similar to the US Army facing the Wehrmacht in WWII; there was no contest between the two as German soldiers and their equipment were far and away the best in the world at the time. This time however, the US will not be able to count on overwhelming numerical superiority and its manufacturing prowess to subdue a well armed adversary since it has lost both a long time ago...

    Where are they protesting against their rulinig imbeciles?

    Theirs meeting with realitity could be very painful.

    The Americans who want war are a minority but they hold the positions of power that count; military-industrial corporate board seats with nearly limitless money to buy votes (of congressmen) … this makes more money than it spends, so it is an endless, profitable loop. What is stupidly inexcusable is ordinary Americans allowing this to go on; for too many reasons to note here, but a few reasons stand out, like Americans too busy hating each other to work together to stop the stupid stuff… or too caught up in the ‘it’s all about me’ to even care what the future will bring (that’s a big one) … and what none of them will wish to look at is if the USA quit it’s aggression and related arms production, the economy would likely collapse, the trap the rabbits avoid discussing because it’s too scary to contemplate.

    And so it is the fringe right warmongers rule, except when it is the fringe liberal warmongers rule; in any case, the label is ‘humanitarian violence’ .. a sort of ‘let’s kill to keep it all civilized’ rationale that is a peculiar form of insanity perhaps inherited from the emptied jails and lunatic asylums of Western Europe prior to the USA’s founding; hybridized with Europe’s banished religious fanatics.

  • This Margolis article is a load of self-aggrandizing horse sh*t from nose to tail. Better is the following from a real intelligence hand:

    [MORE]

    Mirzayanov’s book, published in 2008, contains the formulas he alleges can be used to create Novichoks. In 1995, he explained that “the chemical components or precursors” of Novichok are “ordinary organophosphates that can be made at commercial chemical companies that manufacture such products as fertilizers and pesticides.”

    If his claims are remotely accurate, then that means Novichoks can actually be manufactured by anyone who reads Mirzayanov’s book with access to a decent laboratory. Which means that Theresa May’s claim that Novichoks lead only to Russia is little more than a deception.
    Other states have Novichok capabilities, but the British government doesn’t want to investigate them

    The OPCW’s authoritative verdict on Russia’s now destroyed chemical weapons capabilities should be enough to give anyone pause for thought in rushing to judgement concerning Russian responsibility for the Novichok attack.

    Instead, the British government appears to have no interest in investigating the fact that there are other state agencies with significant nerve agent capabilities. Like its ally, the United States.

    Under Boris Yeltsin, who won Russian elections thanks to Western covert meddling, the Russian government had declared that it was not stockpiling Novichok. This is why Yeltsin did not report Novichok’s existence under chemical-weapons conventions at the time — because the official Russian position was that the stockpiles no longer existed.

    It turns out the Americans themselves were involved in the dismantlement of Russia’s remaining Novichok capabilities.

    In August 1999, as the BBC reported, US defence experts arrived in Uzbekistan to help “dismantle and decontaminate one of the former Soviet Union’s largest chemical weapons testing facilities.” The facility was known as “a major research site for a new generation of secret, highly lethal chemical weapons, known as Novichok”, and provided the US ample opportunity to learn about this nerve agent and reproduce it for testing and defence purposes.

    But it is not just the US. According to Craig Murray — former US Ambassador to Uzbekistan and prior to that a longtime career diplomat in the UK Foreign Office who worked across Africa, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia — the British government itself has advanced capabilities in Novichok:

    “The ‘novochok’ group of nerve agents — a very loose term simply for a collection of new nerve agents the Soviet Union were developing fifty years ago — will almost certainly have been analysed and reproduced by Porton Down. That is entirely what Porton Down is there for. It used to make chemical and biological weapons as weapons, and today it still does make them in small quantities in order to research defences and antidotes. After the fall of the Soviet Union Russian chemists made a lot of information available on these nerve agents. And one country which has always manufactured very similar persistent nerve agents is Israel.”

    But the British government doesn’t want to investigate Porton Down, not even to rule out the possibility that it may have ‘lost control’ of some of its Novichok stockpiles.
    Porton Down: proudly experimenting with nerve gas on the British public from the 1950s to 1989

    Perhaps the government is worried about what it might actually discover if it asks too many questions about Porton Down itself.

    The facility has a somewhat chequered history in relation to the abuse of chemical and biological weapons programmes that has been largely forgotten. This history illustrates that the British government has not at all been averse to using chemical and biological weapons on its own population, just to see what happens.

    Two years ago, the Independent reported on new historical research which found that during the Cold War, the British government “used the general public as unwitting biological and chemical warfare guinea pigs on a much greater scale than previously thought.”

BTW, that armory was where the cannons were kept, so, yeah, ‘regulating the militia’ had to do with making certain the people with the keys to the armory would hesitate to turn those cannons on the populace. If your neighbors are liable to shoot you for taking armed stance on the side of the state in a widespread circumstance of civil disobedience, the presumption would be one should hesitate to employ those cannons.

    Empiricism according to Ronald:

    David Hume’s impossible postulation…

    “In every system of morality, which I have hitherto met with, I have always remarked, that the author proceeds for some time in the ordinary ways of reasoning, and establishes the being of a God, or makes observations concerning human affairs; when all of a sudden I am surprised to find, that instead of the usual copulations of propositions, is, and is not, I meet with no proposition that is not connected with an ought, or an ought not. This change is imperceptible; but is however, of the last consequence. For as this ought, or ought not, expresses some new relation or affirmation, ’tis necessary that it should be observed and explained; and at the same time that a reason should be given, for what seems altogether inconceivable, how this new relation can be a deduction from others, which are entirely different from it. But as authors do not commonly use this precaution, I shall presume to recommend it to the readers; and am persuaded, that this small attention would subvert all the vulgar systems of morality, and let us see, that the distinction of vice and virtue is not founded merely on the relations of objects, nor is perceived by reason”

    …is summed up in Western ethics as ‘Hume’s guillotine’ or the ‘ought-is problem.’ Now, forgive my naiveté when faced with this immutable Western dilemma of philosophy where the ‘ought-is problem‘ is posed…

    “how, exactly can an “ought” be derived from an “is”? The question, prompted by Hume’s small paragraph, has become one of the central questions of ethical theory”

    …as it occurs in my small universe if my ass IS dirty I had OUGHT to wash it. Correct? Or, if it is in the natural order of things one were to have a dirty ass as a matter of fact, expectation and normalcy, and those hairy-assed little shit-balls, quaintly known as ‘dingle-berries’ in the vulgar tongue, must endure .. would it be a violation of IS to pull them out? Had one OUGHT *NOT* do that? What I’m getting at is, there was this time during my progressing baldness I had my head waxed to remove what amounted to an annoying residual fuzz. Now, it’d never occurred to me (previous to faced with Hume’s ‘ought-is problem’) hairy people OUGHT to have an ass-wax-job, but now this seems a logical progression from dirty ass as a result of hairy ass-crack, or that is an IS to an OUGHT.

Isn’t that the real purpose of the indictments, to add another layer of dirt to the mountain of unreliable, uncorroborated, unproven allegations of Russian meddling. Mueller is not acting in his capacity as Special Counsel, he is acting in his role of deep state hatchet-man whose job is to gather scalps by any means necessary [...] It’s worth noting, that if Mueller really wanted to get to the bottom of the Russia-gate allegations, he would interview the people who have first-hand knowledge what actually happened. He would question Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) and Craig Murray, both of whom have stated publicly that they know who stole the Podesta emails.[sic][...] None of this reflects well on Mueller who, by any stretch, appears to be either woefully incompetent or irredeemably biased

    Trump's failure to fire people by the truckload during the first week of his presidency is a topic worth exploring. Probably we won't know why he failed to do this until after his presidency sometime, but it is a curious choice given how widespread and intense was the hatred of him.

    We can know why now. Trump was kneecapped from day one in the Oval Office and he’s surrounded by treasonous people who’ll either keep him in line or step out of the way of Trump’s political enemies. Pence and his ideologically (theologically, actually) aligned Christian Zionist generals have it under control:

    https://original.antiwar.com/justin/2018/02/11/president-held-hostage/

    Meanwhile Trump is the perfect idiot to take the heat and end up holding the bag. The momentary big, inside fight, is fundamentalist Christian Pentagon vs neoliberal CIA for upper hand at the White House with Bibi (via AIPAC) solidly on the side of Pence, probably not if, but much more likely when, Trump is taken down.

    That fool actually believed he would be allowed to become President. Well, he was wrong. He got the title, he gets the heat, but he’ll never be allowed to exercise the power.

They didn't need any encouragement to rise against Yanukovich's broken promise when he backed away from Europe, and tried to sign Ukraine over to Putin's kindly attentions. Ukrainians have always been restive under the Russian thumb and they have intention of being put back under it.

    “Yet we do have evidence that a senior British spy and Trump hater, Christopher Steele, paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC to dig up dirt on Trump, colluded with Kremlin agents to produce a dossier of scurrilous and unsubstantiated charges, to destroy the candidacy of Donald Trump”

    …bs claiming ‘Kremlin agents’ when it would appear the entire hit job on Trump originated with s**t made up on the USA end, and Steele was little more than a cut-out to give the USA’s DoJ (and more likely CIA) cover? Isn’t that more than just a bit like playing the insider game? If you”re going to take a shot at Hillary, why not bring up the actual Russia collusion concerning uranium?

    In 1997 Andrew Weissmann was officially reprimanded by a judge in the Eastern District of New York for withholding evidence.

    More specifically, Weissmann withheld evidence to a court that would have helped the other side in a criminal case, which is required by law. In that previous case:

    Evidence suggested that Scarpa was involved in a personal relationship with his FBI handler, Lindley DeVecchio. DeVeccio, who was also a witness in a case connected to the Persico case. Weissmann had DeVecchio testify against Michael Sessa, a captain in the Colombo family, despite knowing DeVecchio was under investigation by the FBI for his relationship with Scarpa. Weissmann and his team failed disclose that to the courts and presented him as a solid witness in the case, according to Schoen and court documents.

    Mafiosos may not be a sympathetic bunch, but the law is the law and Weissmann didn't think it applied to him.
     

    I wonder how this ties into the deep-sixing of evidence of Qaeda activity in New York to get Mafia prosections through ( timeline here, this is crazy, we will never know what's true or not, also no dancing Israelis, but if the FBI knew, other TLAs and the linked-to network knew,: http://www.peterlance.com/Triple_Cross_PB_Timeline_2009.pdf )

    April 10, 1996: While Scarpa Jr. is providing the FBI with key al Qaeda intelligence from Yousef, the FBI’s New York Office grows concerned about the widening scandal of alleged corruption between Supervisory Special Agent Lin DeVecchio and Scarpa Sr. and its effect on the sixty remaining Colombo war cases in the EDNY. James Kallstrom, ADIC of the NYO, sends a memo to FBI director Louis Freeh suggesting that there is: “insufficient evidence to take prosecutive action” against DeVecchio. This despite the Corcella letter from a year earlier citing eight suspected leaks to Scarpa Sr. Pushing for a resolution of the OPR investigation, Kallstrom writes that the scandal is having a “negative impact” on LCN [La Cosa Nostra] prosecutions and “casts a cloud over the NYO.”

    The Feds are so impressed by the quality of Scarpa Jr.’s intelligence on Yousef that they set up a phony Mafia front company, called the Roma Corp., and allow Yousef to make outside calls from jail. While Yousef believes that his calls to al Qaeda members in the U.S. and the Mideast are being patched through by Scarpa’s wiseguys, the phones are actually manned by FBI agents. But they only speak Arabic, and Yousef is talking in Baluchi and Urdu. At least one call goes to Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, hiding out in Doha, Qatar, while perfecting his nephew Yousef’s planes-as-missiles plot. The FBI sends its HRT team to arrest KSM, but he escapes. Meanwhile, Yousef renews his threat to
    have his people put a bomb on a U.S. airliner to get a mistrial. One of the notes Yousef passes to Scarpa Jr. is entitled “How to Smuggle Explosives Onto An Airliner.” It cites the explosive RDX and acetone peroxide, an ingredient that will show up in a reincarnation of the Bojinka plot by al Qaeda in 2006.

    September 1996: Half a dozen senior DOJ and FBI officials are a party to the treasure trove of al Qaeda intelligence from Yousef from March 1996 through February 1997, including James Kallstrom, Patrick Fitzgerald, and AUSAs Dietrich Snell, Valerie Caproni, and Ellen Corcella. Contained in dozens of FBI 302s, the intel demonstrates proof of an active al Qaeda cell in NYC, and a threat by bin Laden to hijack a plane to free Sheikh Rahman. But within months, reputedly on the word of a Mafia informant named John Napoli, the Feds label the “Scarpa Materials” a “hoax” and “scam.” A key agent in Fitzgerald’s Squad I-49 claims that he never sees this intel on al Qaeda’s active presence in NYC.

    October 1998: At trial, Greg Scarpa Jr . testifies about the eleven-month intelligence initiative in which he risked his life to provide the Feds with evidence of an al Qaeda presence in New York City. But Judge Reena Raggi believes Patrick Fitzgerald ’s contention that the Yousef/Scarpa evidence, contained in dozens of FBI 302s, was a “part of a scam.” She sentences Scarpa Jr. to forty years for RICO violations; he is to be housed in the Supermax prison, along with convicted terrorists including Ramzi Yousef and Terry Nichols.

    Spring 2004: After briefing the 9/11 Commission, on the hijackers cells and al Qaeda’s ties to the blind Sheikh, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer’s testimony is ignored by Dietrich Snell, the former SDNY AUSA who is now a senior counsel to the commission. In the commission’s final report, Snell pushes the origin of the plot forward two years and alleges that Ramzi Yousef was not involved—relying solely on the word of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who has been tortured. Testifying before the Commission, Patrick Fitzgerald calls Ali Mohamed “one of the most chilling examples of al Qaeda’s espionage,” but says nothing about how Mohamed outgunned the FBI for years. Meanwhile, after talking openly about the Able Danger cover up, Shaffer has his security clearance pulled, and the Bronze Star winner becomes the target of a DOD witchhunt.

  • If you’d like to see an example of this in action, take a few minutes and watch what happens to Luke Harding, author of the book Collusion, when he is interviewed by Aaron Mate. What you will witness is Harding melting down as his “collusion” narrative (i.e., the premise of his book) falls to pieces under Mate’s questioning, which remains collegial and calm throughout. Clearly, it had never occurred to Harding that anyone would question the “RussiaGate” narrative, and especially not someone else in “the business,” as mainstream journalists are trained to accept and parrot whatever the ruling classes tell them. When he finally realizes what is happening, (i.e., that his “reality” is melting away like your face in the mirror on a bad acid trip), he calls Mate a “collusion rejectionist,” and abruptly ends the interview.

    Well then, Mr C.J., why does Aaron Mate and The Real News allow Marcy Wheeler to do what Harding was too stupid to do effectively; make repeated, ongoing case for collusion? (noting Wheeler prefers the stronger term ‘conspiracy’) Watch or read transcripts:

    Yes, because flintlock muskets and rifles were state of the art military small arms in those days. The 2nd Amendment recognized the right of human beings to have the same arms as agents of their government.

    There's no need to go back to the drawing board. Someone who has been personally targeted for assassination by agents of his own government, as you have, should have a better view of the rights of people to keep and bear state of the art small arms to defend themselves against their own government

    “There’s no need to go back to the drawing board. Someone who has been personally targeted for assassination by agents of his own government, as you have, should have a better view of the rights of people to keep and bear state of the art small arms to defend themselves against their own government”

    Actually, my experience has (as some might imagine) caused a deep reflection. I don’t question the premise of the 2nd Amendment, it is what it is. What I question is, the de facto ability, whether a state or individual, to take upon themselves 1) the right to kill, and 2) easily possess the means to go about it.

    As you might note, in my prior comment I express a high degree of doubt there is an easy answer, if there is an answer at all.

    What to watch for: enough mass killings generating pressure to employ the simplest legal means to outlaw the possession of weapons by the populace without curtailing the power of the state to employ extra-judicial murders. How this could initially come about would be the ‘supremacy clause’ of the constitution applied to entering a multilateral treaty banning sales of weapons and ammunition to private parties, for instance a small arms control treaty aimed at reducing numbers of AK 47, AR 15 and other high volume fire models, interpreted in such way as Ruger, Colt, et cetera can only wholesale to federal military, example given. All it would require is the Executive to sign and the Senate to ratify, said treaty and it becomes “the supreme law of the land”, the 2nd Amendment lawfully canceled out. Then you will finally have a science-fiction medieval authority with 21st Century killing technology. We’re not there yet, but we may not be far away either.

    Meanwhile look for the FBI and other agencies to continue to stand back and ‘fail’ to stop massacres like this most recent. It’s a matter of septic flotsam rising to leadership at the top:

    https://ronaldthomaswest.com/2018/02/07/bob-manson-charlie-mueller/

    ^ There is nothing these people would not stoop to, to consolidate power, if for no reason other than saving their own asses as a criminal actors and political class; inclusive of state initiated mass murders on a vast scale, were the 2nd Amendment to ‘come into force’ so to speak, pitting the people in open warfare with the central government.

    It seems there should be a better way out of the dilemma of the USA having morphed into a criminal state apparatus. Meanwhile, I hate to say ‘democracy’ is a failed experiment but the prognosis is not good.

    Evil has its own hierarchy of rewards. Perhaps the most famous man of the 20th century was Hitler, with Stalin and Mao among his leading rivals.
     
    Thanks for commenting on that.

    Funny how that paragraph is sitting right next to an image of Pat's book. You'd think he'd know better than to make a doofus statement like that. Churchill, FDR, and their Wall Street buddies were all much worse than Hitler, and PB should know that.

    A die hard nationalist like Paddie ought ot have a bit of empathy if not sympathy for Hitler, I'd think.

    The German-Polish war had come out of a quarrel over a town the size of Ocean City, Md., in summer. Danzig, 95 percent German, had been severed from Germany at Versailles in violation of Woodrow Wilson’s principle of self-determination. Even British leaders thought Danzig should be returned.
    …Was Danzig worth a war? Unlike the 7 million Hong Kongese whom the British surrendered to Beijing, who didn’t want to go, the Danzigers were clamoring to return to Germany. [As were several other populations in countries surrounding Germany.]

    "The revolution was fought with, and the 2nd Amendment was written, in the era of flintlocks. "

    Yes, because flintlock muskets and rifles were state of the art military small arms in those days. The 2nd Amendment recognized the right of human beings to have the same arms as agents of their government.

    There's no need to go back to the drawing board. Someone who has been personally targeted for assassination by agents of his own government, as you have, should have a better view of the rights of people to keep and bear state of the art small arms to defend themselves against their own government

    Concerning the numerous anti-Semites who cling to his comments sections like flies attracted to stink, the attraction to these more noisome types is as easy as reading the disqualifying all American Jews, in sweeping language, in regards to Israel; recalling the suspicions placed on all Japanese Americans during WWII.
     
    Never mind the comments, did you even read Phil's articles ?

    You do recall Phil saying something like that there has been a longstanding policy in the .gov that US policy not be made by ethnic nationals in what concerns their country origin? This being for the obvious reason that they might not be impartial in their decisions. Also, there is the very possible risk that their family and relatives in their US and national communities might be put under pressure to affect US policy. Is it not clear to you that this might be a consideration?

    What would speak in your opinion against the entire Chinese government foreign policy establishment from becoming naturalized US citizen and demanding jobs in the state department to decide US policy toward China? Can you not see that there might be, in this case, some potential conflict of interest ? Or would you consider me to be Sinophobic?

    How about if the Russians, or Syrians, or Iranians or any of the other countries we're busy entrapping or are actively fighting against were to send send their nationals into our government as US citizen? And if you accept that they not be allowed to dictate US policy, then on what basis do you maintain that we should allow the Israeli partisans, who are instigating some of these conflicts, to do just that ?

    Can you see why it is not strictly necessary to be rabid anti-semite in order to make such an argument ? (Unless you now consider me to also be a rabid anti-Russian or anti-Persian as well.)

    “Never mind the comments” … I don’t think so.

    What jumps out is how you ignore my conclusion, which does NOT ignore the content of the article, and the issue at hand cannot separate the article from the comments:

    But does one disqualify all Murphys in regards to making policy concerning Ireland, whether they have dual citizenship or not? Or does the individual’s patriotism play? These are questions can be intelligently discussed sans mass indictment

    Multiple critics of Phil’s article point to identical conclusion. It begins with his article’s title America’s Jews are Driving America’s Wars, or what can be read as an all-inclusive line of crap.

    Setting aside ‘New Jew’ (Christian) froot-loop-war-drivers like John McCain and Lindsey Graham and their ilk, or about 90 million evangelicals (ok, so they’re not all voting age yet but do you even remember war in relation to George W Bush?) Giraldi’s selective title of mass indictment panders to the worst in our society, as well Giraldi’s language also ignores American Jews opposed to America’s wars, or Noam Chomsky, Glenn Greenwald, examples given, and particularly J Street:

    http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20110308005806/en/STREET-Providing-Alternative-AIPAC-reports-Jon-Basil
