On October 21st there will be a Women’s March on the Pentagon hosted by the Global Women’s Peace Action. My wife and many of our friends will be going and even I will tag along in support in spite of my gender. We participate with some reservations as we have only demonstrated publicly twice since 9/11, once opposing the then about to start Iraq War and once against the annual meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). All too often demonstrations morph into progressive exercises in flagellation of what are now referred to as “deplorable” values with little being accomplished either before, during or afterwards, apart from the piles of debris left behind to be cleaned up by the Park Service. And such events are rarely even covered by the media in Washington, where the Post generally adheres closely to a neocon foreign policy tactic, which means that if you ignore something distasteful it will eventually go away.

Hopefully on this occasion it will be different because the time for talking politics is rapidly being rendered irrelevant by the speed of Washington’s disengagement from reality and Americans of all political persuasions must begin to take to the streets to object to what their government is doing in their name. I am mildly optimistic that change is coming as I find it difficult to imagine that in spite of the relentless flood of mainstream media propaganda there is even a plurality of Americans that supports with any actual conviction what the United States is doing in Syria and what it intends to do in Iran. And apart from a desire to make voting in America safer and insofar as possible interference free, I also believe that most think that Russiagate is a load of hooey and would prefer to be friends with Moscow.

Why now? “Now” is a whole new ballgame, as the expression goes, because the utter insanity coming out of Washington could easily wind up killing most of us here in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Specifically, in a press conference on Tuesday, Kay Bailey Hutchison, a former Senator from Texas who is currently the United States’ ambassador to NATO, declared that Washington was prepared to launch a preemptive attack on Russian military installations as a response to alleged treaty violations on the part of Moscow. Note particularly what Hutchison actually said: “At that point, we would be looking at the capability to take out a missile that could hit any of our countries. Counter measures would be to take out the missiles that are in development by Russia in violation of the treaty. They are on notice.”

And note further what she was implying, namely that Washington, acting on its own authority, has the right to attack a nuclear armed and powerful foreign country based on what are presumably negotiable definitions of what are acceptable weapons to base on one’s own soil. It would be an attack on a neighbor or competitor with whom one is not at war and which does not necessarily pose any active threat. By that standard, any country with a military capability can be described as threatening and one can attack anyone else based purely on one’s own assessment of what is acceptable or not.

It is quite remarkable how many countries in the world are now “on notice” for punishment when they do things that the United States objects to. United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has warned that she will be “taking names” of those United Nations members that criticize U.S. policies in the Middle East. As increasing discomfort with U.S. initiatives there and elsewhere is a worldwide phenomenon, with only Israel, the Philippines, Nigeria and Kenya having a favorable view of Washington, Haley’s list is inevitably a long one. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton, when they are not fabricating intelligence and inflating threats, have likewise warned specific countries that they are being judged by Washington and will be punished at a level proportionate to their transgressions.

Hutchison is not known as a deep thinker, so one has to suspect that her expressed views were fed to her by someone in Washington. Her specific grievance against Russia relates to Moscow’s reported deployment of new land-based missiles that have a claimed range of more than 5,000 kilometers, which is enough to hit most targets in Europe. If true, the development would be in violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty of 1987 and would definitely pose a potential threat to the Europeans, but the more serious question has to be the rationale behind threatening a nuclear war through preemptive action over an issue that might be subject to renewed multilateral negotiation.

Hutchison and the State Department inevitably went into double-speak mode when concerns were expressed about possible preemption against Russia. She clarified her earlier comments with an almost incomprehensible “My point: Russia needs to return to INF Treaty compliance or we will need to match its capabilities to protect U.S. & NATO interests. The current situation, with Russia in blatant violation, is untenable.”

Spokesman Heather Nauert at State then chimed in “What Ambassador Hutchison was talking about was improving overall defense and deterrence posture. The United States is committed to upholding its arms control obligations and expects Russia to do the very same thing.” Both disclaimers were needed, even if lacking in clarity, but they did not dispel the ugly taste of the initial comment regarding starting a war of preemption. Russia took note of the back and forth, with a Foreign Ministry spokesman drily observing “It seems that people who make such statements do not realize the level of their responsibility and the danger of aggressive rhetoric.” Hutchison and Nauert also do not seem aware of the fact that Russia’s frequently stated defense doctrine is to use nuclear weapons if and when it is attacked by a superior force, which might well be Moscow’s assessment of the threat posed by U.S. led NATO.

The disconnect between the White House’s often expressed desire to improve relations with Russia and the bureaucracy’s tendency to send the opposite message is typical of what has been referred to as Trump’s “dual-track presidency”. Gareth Porter has recently observed how President Trump, for all his faults in so many ways, is indeed desirous of military disengagement in some areas but he is repeatedly being overruled or outmaneuvered by the permanent bureaucracies in government, most notably the Pentagon and intelligence services. Hutchison, Haley, Pompeo and Bolton speak and act for that constituency even when they appear to be agreeing with the president.

So given the danger of war based on what Washington itself says about the state of the world and America’s presumed role in it, it is time to take the gloves off and march. That a high-level official can even stand up and speak about preventive war with a major nuclear power is disgraceful. She should be fired immediately. That she has not been fired means that someone somewhere high up in the bureaucracy agrees with what she said. Nuclear war is not an option. It is an end of all options.

    Look no further than Mike Pence. The NYTimes’ anonymous op-ed clearly said there is a cabal inside Trump’s cabinet that actively works against all his wishes, esp. on foreign policy. Haley, Bolton, Pompeo, Mattis, Hutchison, Kelly, Rosenstein, Sessions, Kirstjen Nielsen were all brought in by Mike Pence, and I strongly suspect one of these people wrote that op-ed, despite their denial. Haley and Kelly didn’t even bother denying. All are warmongering neocons working for a tiny kingdom in the Mideast, God’s chosen.

    I have suspected for a long time that Mike Pence is plotting a soft coup against Trump, and that Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions are both in on it. I honestly don’t know why Trump still hasn’t fired Rosenstein. The fucking weasel has got to be the most hated face among Trump supporters. Everyone knows he is the face of Deep State, except Trump, who still insist “we get along very well”. WTF is he thinking? I would really like to know.

  4. I am mildly optimistic that change is coming as I find it difficult to imagine that in spite of the relentless flood of mainstream media propaganda there is even a plurality of Americans that supports with any actual conviction what the United States is doing in Syria and what it intends to do in Iran.

    Bravo for taking action and speaking truth to power, whether or not it is effective. Sure beats sitting in front of the TV doing nothing.

    I, too, am mildly optimistic that change is coming. The gulf between what the people want and what Washington is doing has never been wider. This comes due to the heightened awareness by the common citizen that we are being manipulated by a foreign nation, and the Internet has contributed greatly to that apocalyptic revelation, as have writers such as yourself and Ron Unz, and a host of others too numerous to list. Slowly, but surely, the MSM is being beaten back and their propaganda is rapidly becoming far less effective. I have to credit Trump for making “fake news” a meme. Whatever else he has done (or disappointingly, not done), credit where credit is due.

    I stand by my previous comment that the time for attacking Syria has now passed, and no matter the amount of verbal diarrhea spewing from talking heads in DC, or the warmongers in Israel, the situation in the ME is radically different today than it was in 2011. Israel may (I hope) attempt to send a few F35s over to Syria to take out the S-300 sites, but the first F35 that drops from a “bird strike” will be the last such adventure. I expect the withdrawal of US military misadventures after that, and with that, the end of Israel – Samson Option or not.

    I would invest in Orville Redenbacher’s® Popcorn stocks (Conagra Brands).

  5. Further to my “mild optimism” fueled by the increasing awareness by our fellow citizens:
    Most Americans would support withdrawal from Afghanistan

    https://today.yougov.com/topics/politics/articles-reports/2018/10/08/most-americans-would-support-withdrawal-afghanista

    The results show that if President Trump were to announce that he was ordering the withdrawal of all troops from Afghanistan he would have the support of 61% of Americans. A parallel survey of current and former armed forces personnel found that such a move would be even more popular, with 69% in support.

    Many critics of the war in Afghanistan have blamed the lack of success on the absence of a strategy for operations in the country. Such a view seems to be shared by the American public, with the majority (55%) saying the US does not have a strategic objective for the conflict (as do 59% of veterans).

    :
    :
    The results of the survey come at a time when the public is sceptical about the US global military presence. Close to half of Americans (45%) and veterans (49%) think that the US should be less militarily engaged worldwide. Around a third of each group (32-33%) would keep engagement levels about the same, while 14-16% want to see them ramped up.

  6. I suspect everyone dismissed Hutchison as a stupid political bimbo for threatening to ignite World War III, but no one can say that or they would be fired or forced to resign, and heavily criticized for insulting a woman.

    The nuttiest member of the Trump administration is UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Her latest neo-nazi stunt was to join protestors last week calling for the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Venezuela. She grabbed a megaphone at a tiny New York rally and told the few “protesters” (organized by our CIA) to say the USA is working to overthrow their President. This was so bizarre that our corporate media refused to report it. Jimmy Dore assembled this great video of CNN presenting their expert calling the President of Venezuela paranoid for saying the USA wants to overthrow his government. A few hours later, a different CNN report documented recent efforts by the USA to overthrow his government!

    Empires that are in the midst of collapse often focus on external enemies, real or imagined, in order to distract from domestic troubles. Therefore, the Empire goes in search of enemies to attack. This will end very badly. Personally, I think breaking up the United States like the Soviet Union broke up is probably the best thing that could happen for world peace. Let the Red States/counties break apart from the Blue ones. Afterwards, both sides will moderate and there will be a period of world peace; in any case, neither side will have the will, manpower, or finances to rule the world even if they wanted to. This is an elegant, peaceful solution that I think Giraldi can understand. He should perhaps address this possibility.

  8.

    In the 1960′s there was a popular awareness of the risk of nuclear war. Americans (Anglo-Americans) were scared, and were out building nuclear shelters and studying survivalism, with the risk of nuclear war a top social issue. e.g. the 1963 success of Bob Dylan’s – “A Hard Rain’s a Gonna Fall”:

    Oh, what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
    Oh, what’ll you do now, my darling young one?

    …… And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
    It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

    Almost as if Dylan wanted it to happen.

    Well, with a further half century of US Jewish activism the US has got there, with the right level of hubris, aggressiveness and public indifference. Putin’s March 1st speech was lost on the US public. They swallow the media manufactured anti-Russian agit-prop, and have the most blasé indifference to the millions killed in America’s ME wars of aggression.

    It doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen – there’s some push back against Netanyahu ( the world class criminal feted by the US Congress) and the Zioglob – but a nuclear war is a real possibility.

    Aux Barricades Mes Enfants: Non! Apprenez La Vérité Mes Enfants!

    And that is the trouble with people whom are poorly educated: lack of education. Giraldi you’ve done it again.

    Do you understand, Giraldi, what “Aux Barricades Mes Enfants” signifies? It had nothing to do with the French Revolution, it had to do with the Franco-Austria war. In short, it was a battle cry for war, not change.

    May well you march Giraldi, but will you accomplish anything? No. Personally I am sick and tired of reading ignorant and manipulative readings of Americans with a poor understanding of world politics and an incredible indignant chip on their shoulder (you’re one of them Giraldi) that can sit back and write the dribble you write from a position of utter self learnt ignorance of facts and a huge ability to pretend sympathy for the rest of the world.

    As an European, you know Giraldi, one of those people that you Americans are threatening annihilation every time when somebody over here doesn’t kowtow to Washington’s demands, it is truly beginning to really grate against my sense to understanding people like yourself.

    Giraldi, you are prepared to march. Fine. But do you still buy gas for your car? You know the gas, that all your Presidents since Roosevelt (whom was the first President to make the House of Saud what they are today, rich, evil, and psychopathic murders) have made deals with those psychopaths in Saudi Arabia. How many marches have there been over the decades where Americans have protested of all the wealth the Saudis have been stealing from the Arabic people, and giving to the US for cheap? How many marches have there been that Americans have been paying too little for their very cheap petroleum? Have you Giraldi ever protested for that? No. You’re a hypocrite.

    Shall we continue Giraldi? Yes why not, you need to learn some real facts. You’re very quick to point fingers at people, like Hutchison, as you stated, “Hutchison is not known as a deep thinker.” Really? And I suppose you are? Bwahahahahahaha!

    Where are your solutions Giraldi? Let me ask you Giraldi, you are quick to cast dispersions upon Republican members of government, so I suppose your a Democrat? When have the Democrats in the last 100 years ever did anything that wasn’t warmongering?

    It is clear, like it was in your last article, “One Click Closer To Annihilation”, and my response to it “One Step Closer To Retribution”, that you are devoid of common-sense, and poorly educated in the facts of the world. Let me enlighten you Giraldi.

    Instead of marching for something useless as your governments warmonger, which has been going on since 1770, how about you start educating your fellow Americans about some truths:

    1) The First Amendment Of The United States Of America: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

    It clearly states, “the right of the people peaceably to assemble.” Why then do those Demcrate AntiFa thugs are allowed to bully, intimidate and bash those whom are “peacefully assembling”? Why aren’t they in prison for breaking the First Amendment? Why don’t you protest against the bullying of the Left?

    Then there is the clause, “prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” Why is the government allowing companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter disenfranchising the right of Americans to say what they like on these social platforms? Do you protest for that? These companies are breaking the First Amendment, and yet no body is marching, or more pertinently putting these monsters of social injustice in prison!

    Giraldi, you march because you don’t like the present administration, but you don’t do, write, say anything about protecting the rights that ALL Americans have? Shame on you! You’re a disgrace to the freedom of everyone on this Earth!

    2) The US Continually Breaks International: Here is just a sample of cases;

    - US Breaks International Law Against Antigua (G. Bush): Since 2003, the US have been refusing to pay Antigua hundreds of millions dollars in damages ordered the WTO. Read all about why, US-Thuggery-On-Antigua

    -US Invasion of Iraq (G. Bush): not much to speak of here, we all know the truth now.

    - The illegal (both Internationally and US law) bombing of the former Yugoslavia regions (Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina) in 1999 (B. Clinton): False allegations and out right lies where used to weaken a strengthening Serbia (ally to Russia).

    - Illegal invasion and occupation of Syria (B. Obama, D. Trump).

    I could go on for many pages writing about how the US doesn’t follow law. Laws that the US has signed to agree to up hold. For example, the 1955 Treaty of Amity, was signed by the Eisenhower Administration. Yet as soon as the US doesn’t like something (that is, Trump), they break the Treaty and cry foul. Foul for whom? A treaty is a compromise between two parties, not to satisfy the whims of only one party. Yet do you march for that Giraldi? Nope.

    Giraldi, you live in a country of thieves. The USA is continually going around the world stealing all the resources it requires, including human labour for less than slave wages. Think about this everyone. During those wicked days of slavery in the South, the slave owner had to pay at least food and board to house his slaves. Whereas, the likes of Apple don’t even have to do that, they get away with paying a few dollars a day per Chinese slave. Can any American in the US of A, live on $2 a day? Nooooo, but people like you Giraldi, are prepared to march for a cause that has NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE USA been bestowed upon the rest of the world, that is, freedom from US oppression, thuggery and war. So Giraldi, why don’t you march against Apple? You know the Slave merchants.

    Before you Americans, like Giraldi, think you can do something about helping the rest of the world -please don’t, you Americans have helped us enough, like fostering and aiding evil elites to create useless wars like WWI and WWII – try fixing your own country. You have a government that doesn’t even follow the Constitution, deigning the rights of Americans, that is enshrined in the Constitution. Fix up your country and start following your own laws!

    As for you Giraldi, go back to school and learn about hypocrisy, rhetoric and history. It is clear you have very little understanding of these concepts. Marching for something that has never been achieved in your country is stupid. Its even worse, when the very next day you go buy gasoline for your car, clothes and technology that you pay cents on the dollar for in the cost of making those products, and enjoy an unrealistic life style while your country enslaves, tortures, genocides itself to prosperity.

    GIRALDI, YOU WRITE, THINK, ANALYSE AND LIVE LIKE A HYPOCRITE. You’re everything the ordinary European on the streets hates; pompous, arrogant and self-servering, we have enough of these ****holes in the European Parliament. The last thing we need is people like you trying to help us. If you’d people would just follow your Constitution, you wouldn’t be needing to march for anyone!

    “Americans of all political persuasions must begin to take to the streets to object to what their government is doing in their name.”

    Problem is ‘Americans’ don’t agree on anything, and even if they did, they’d never stoop to allying themselves with the other side. America has been transformed into a multi-cultural empire where everyone hates each other. Therefore, the public is easily divided by the Ruling Class. This is why the people’s views aren’t expressed by the government: various groups are distracted by petty tribal emotionalism. I think this was by design. Americans may want out of Afghanistan, but as soon as one side supports it, the other will oppose it. Multicultural empires don’t work. That’s not “white nationalism” but a simple statement of fact recognized by various peoples around the world and throughout history.

    “Three of those four names mentioned were empowered in their respective positions by none other than Donald Trump himself.”

    True. Trump = generally good instincts but bad judge of character and easily manipulated due to his extreme vanity. These people sucked up to him, so he gave them jobs, despite the fact that they undermine his policies. Like I said, bad judge of character. If you’re the evil deep state, probably the best thing that can be done at present is to hire PIs and dig up dirt on each one of them, leading to new blood and a staff that doesn’t manipulate Trump for ill gotten purposes. The press and deep state have focused on Trump when they probably should have been focusing on his staff. No one ever accused them of being particularly intelligent; evil yes, but not so wise.

    “I have suspected for a long time that Mike Pence is plotting a soft coup against Trump, and that Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions are both in on it.”

    Too late, if so. Their coup has failed by this point. They’ll have to tolerate the man as he has made it clear that he is too temperamental and vain to ever resign; he’s no Nixon and republicans won’t turn on him, no matter what he does or says. Full stop. No matter what dirt they dig up on him, he’ll either deny it or turn it around on his enemies. Kavanaugh is representative of this. I believe the man is likely innocent of anything serious, but notice how Trump, despite seemingly throwing the man under the bus (upon advice by his staff), immediately reverted back to his instincts and publicly declared Dr. Ford to be a liar with almost no ill effects. He’s now more popular among Republicans than any other Republican in history, including both Reagan and Lincoln. This is why the Mueller report won’t be out until later this year, a very long while after it was started. They thought he’d be gone by now, so they’ve got nothing left after firing all their ammunition and him refusing to quit in response. Even if they did try something, you shouldn’t expect anything other than a strong retaliatory reaction – a military coup or secession.

    The only real option these people ever had – assuming they are as nefarious as we seem to think they are – was to find a republican even more popular than him to oppose him. Unfortunately for the deep state, they’ve created a system where all of their controlled politicians are incompetent, out-of-touch, and hated buffoons. And Pence, Sessions, Cruz, etc. aren’t as popular as him. Period.

    Dear Mr. Giraldi ,

    One could argue, that ANY march against the (immensely corrupt) Pentagon for its immense corruption, by anybody,(not just women), is not only worthwhile, but long overdue.

    Does anyone know what it means that our Pentagon has refused an audit for the past 18 years ?

    It means that (even as I write this) our beloved Pentagon could be billing out “60 million dollars “for a half bar of ivory soap sent over to scrub the arse of some new Afghan recruit, just hours before he “defects” to the Taliban… for the 10th time..in 10 years….and NO ONE can or would ever know about it.

    Its scary.

    The layers upon layers of fraud and pilfering may well be so humongous ….they defy description.

    One begins to recognize that perhaps the true purpose of these stupid “endless” wars is nothing more than to CONTINUE to “bill out” the 60 million (to the taxpayer) for the “Afghan, arse cleaning soap”, indefinitely…and nothing more..

    Hence our , current, $22,000,000,000,000.00 National Debt.

    All designed to “engorge” our war making “elite” with “trillions” of (un-audited) pilfered and pocketed “taxpayer” dough.

    Hands down, the greatest , single “18 year pillage ” on our national solvency, in American History.

    The “rot at the top” is ….. staggering …….and utterly disgraceful.

    The lack of accountability, even worse.

    I, too, am mildly optimistic that change is coming…….. I have to credit Trump for making “fake news” a meme.

    Yup, they are pushing fake news from all sides. I was the first one on this site who claimed the Shia Crescent was empowered by USA. About a week ago, Ehud Barak was discussing on CNN about Shia Banana, as he didn’t have the courage to call it Shia Crescent. However, he was tempted to call it Shai Kotex, but being chicken shit, he was afraid a blow back from feminism.

    Yesterday Debka reported, “Russia imports Iranian teams for S-300s in Syria – 24 launchers in all. Shocked alarm in US, Israel.”

    For Israel this move has both good and bad aspects: On the one hand it will be a relief for Israeli air crews to know that when they go for Syria’s S-300 air defense batteries, they need not fear hurting Russian troops; but, on the other, by managing Syria’s air defenses, Iran further strengthens is military foothold in Syria, which the Netanyahu government is dedicated to rooting out. By the same token, Iran takes Moscow’s decision as an endorsement of its claim to a solid military presence in Syria.

    Do you understand, Giraldi, what “Aux Barricades Mes Enfants” signifies?

    He obviously does, but you obviously don’t understand what “Non! Apprenez La Vérité Mes Enfants!” means, self-righteous as you are.

    As an European, you know Giraldi, one of those people that you Americans are threatening annihilation every time when somebody over here doesn’t kowtow to Washington’s demands, it is truly beginning to really grate against my sense to understanding people like yourself.

    Are you really so dense? Giraldi is anti-war.

    Have you Giraldi ever protested for that? No. You’re a hypocrite.

    You do have some valid points in that rant of yours – now climb off your high horse, make your points without needlessly and pointlessly attacking the writer or your readers, who have about as much control over the political process as you do, and are as much to blame for it. Use persuasion, not accusations, and you might actually have some effect. As it is, your effort is wasted.

Starting with all the Jews that surrounded him long before he became President (personal doctor, personal lawyer, foundation head, daughter, son-in-law) and he’s been taking Netanyahu’s cock deep and hard ever since taking office. If he’s not a crypto-Jew I don’t know who is; maybe it’s because they control his wealth and have enough dirt on him to put him in jail, in any case, he is a traitor.

    i have heard this Trump has been overruled so many times, that I wonder if I could overrule him?
    Overruled is a copout.. if Trump came to the American people and said these bastards are all trying to steal your country, I need you the people to help.. I believe finding a Neocon, a member of the MSM, or a member of the Deep State in America within a few days would be next to impossible and at the same time, I also believe that is a time when America will be nuked; these people are vicious, certainly not people in love with America.
    My personal opinion is that Trump is the last stand, if he fails or betrays Americans, it will be over for the USA. something very different will emerge and no telling the blood shed in between.
    Five votes (pres. vp, 2 senate, 1 house) per American has proved to be insufficient for Americans to keep those who conduct the affairs of the USA on track.

    Al Gore didn’t need the Electoral College votes of Florida if he had won his own State of Tennessee. And, Ohio was called for John Kerry, but later at night California time, they switched it to Bush Jr.

  41. @NoseytheDuke

    Three of those four names mentioned were empowered in their respective positions by none other than Donald Trump himself.

    Exactly the case. That is why DJT is not viewed as a treaty-worthy party. Trump’s “John, I need you in my cabinet” towards Bolton pretty much sums it up both for Trump and for US “cadre pool”. Interestingly, Putin few days ago at Energy Summit was explicit when stated to the effect that why don’t you impose every possible sanction on us–this will completely untie our hands. This is in a large sense message to Trump that he is not to be trusted. Indeed, he is not even in control of own Administration, which he himself assembled.

Media propaganda has been so effective in demonizing Putin, demonizing Russia, and linking Russia to Trump’s election victory that most if not all mainstream Democrats do view Russia as the enemy.

    However, on the positive side, the American public will not support any wars that involve significant US boots on the ground. There is no public will for it. Nor will be there any nuclear exchanges because this is suicidal. Therefore our future conflicts will continue to be fought with missiles, planes, drones, special forces, and proxies.

Isn’t it what appointment is for–to appoint one to be a member of Cabinet? But if to bypass this mind-bending issue, the point is absolutely not in that–it is in the fact that Trump completely on won volition and with enthusiasm appointed to an important position a man who is utterly unqualified to advice on any national security issue and is known to be a neocon and war-monger.

    George Kennan had a similar suggestion in his book Around the Cragged Hill, back in the 1990s, mostly on the grounds that eight of so regional states in North America wouldn’t have the resources to attempt to rule the planet they way Imperial Washington now seeks to.

  78. With some amusement I read what a Frenchman, or -women, here accuses Giraldi and/or the USA of.
    As if not Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, the British, the Belgians tried to form, with more or less succes, and with more ore less terror and massacring, empires.
    When exactly USA empire building began, I’d say with the Monroe Declaration, 1820 or 1830: South America is ours.

    Now the big difference between USA imperialism and the other imperialims was just a matter of words, the USA liberated, brought civilisation, it did not colonise.
    In the 20th century this USA benevolence succeeded in destroying all empires, through WWI and WWII, then just the USA empire remained.

    Of course, no empire, ‘the international community’.
    Pity that a few major powers did not want the USA yoke, China, Russia, India, and of course tiny Iran.
    Countries like Indonesia are under the USA yoke, North Korea resists, as does Syria.

    We in the Netherlands more or less happily do what Uncle Sam wants us to do: join in wars in Afghanistan, in Irak, in Syria, buy seemingly worthless Patriot missiles, cruise missiles wa cannot use without USA permission, and JFS’s that hardly fly and defend us against what ?
    But, the USA is the biggest customer of Rotterdam harbour.

    This is one side of the USA.
    The other side is USA society, a society stuck in the second half of the 19th century, the time of the robber barons: Rockefeller, Flagler, Carnegy.
    There has never been a significant change in the USA, the only thing that counts is money.
    USA democracy, who has the most money wins the elections.
    That the richest country in the world is unable to provide decent health care for the whole population, incomprehensible in Europe.
    No or bad pension systems, the same.
    But money for weaponry, never a problem.

    However, on the positive side, the American public will not support any wars that involve significant US boots on the ground.

    Recent US ‘wars’ have not involved boots on the ground, they involve spies in the corners, advisors in the consulates and embassies, drones in the skies, controllers manning (term used loosely) joy-sticks (term used obscenely) in air-conditioned offices thousands of miles away, planes dropping bombs from god’s great heaven (more obscenity).

    Moreover, and judging strictly from obsessive and singular C-Span-watching, the American public that calls in to C Span does not know and cares even less that USA is killing people in multiple obscene ways; they are fanatically invested in expressing Hate — raw, visceral, ignorant HATE for Trump, because he “grabs pussy,” and the deplorable people who voted for him.

    Years ago Zbigniew Brzezinski said that the biggest danger to USA is the ignorance of its citizens.

    Corporate media, and that includes allegedly “fairest of them all” C Span, plays the major role in making and keeping Americans misinformed; US education system comes in a close second.

    My optimism does not come from some magical change in what Trump and cohorts are doing – it comes from the rising awareness of jewish influence in our politics, and we are many and they are few.

    As for the resignation of the witch, there is no question that she and a host of other women are being groomed for the presidency. Hey, we have had a catholic, several crypto-jews and freemasons, and a (half) black president, time to hoist a woman to that role – after all the presidency should be an example of affirmative action, no?

    Well, to my mind one of the most totally insane U.S. actions was our recent imposition of new economic sanctions against China

    Indeed. Time was when we were not so dependent on China for nearly everything, having outsourced nearly all of our manufacturing to them and others in exchange for corporate profits for the globalists. Now, we are full of bluster and idle threats. Sure, China will be (temporarily) hurt if the US market is closed to them (they have been lending us money to buy from them), but if the sanctions on Russia is anything to go by, it will push China to greater self-sufficiency, while inflation goes through the roof over here and all but the elite are reduced to abject poverty.

    You know, that could be the silver lining. Empty bellies are the catalysts for revolution.

    Let the Red States/counties break apart from the Blue ones. Afterwards, both sides will moderate and there will be a period of world peace; in any case, neither side will have the will, manpower, or finances to rule the world even if they wanted to.

    That was the original plan of the Founding Fathers to construct a confederation of independent States wherein concentrations of political and military power would be impossible to achieve. This was the first and most important “separation of powers” that, once destroyed, rendered separation of powers between the three branches of government obsolete.

    The S-400 is not merely military equipment for Russia but a tool for geopolitical strategy. The Russians, despite the sanctions on Almaz-Antey, are actively offering it to a number of countries, including NATO members such as Turkey, which has signed a provisional agreement to purchase it in December, despite US warnings. China has reportedly already acquired the first set of S-400 system including the command post, radar stations and launching stations. The S-400 may also be purchased by countries such as Algeria, Belarus, Iran and Vietnam, thus reducing the American sphere of influence.

Trump did his usual Kabuki theater with the “she’s done a fantastic job”, allowed her to resign rather than firing her in exchange for her not running in 2020, not that she’d come anywhere close to winning anyway. Maybe she’s going to run as Pence’s running mate 2020 or 2024. They make quite the warmongering neocon pair from hell.

    Now we can only pray Trump replaces her with someone who will actually carry out his campaign promise of no more wars — Tulsi Gabbard. She was under serious consideration during the transition but Pence pushed for Haley. Now if Pence objects to Gabbard once more he can go to hell.

    When Putin made the offhand remark…”Maybe it was the Jews”…..his remark wasn’t played up much as so called ‘antisemitic’ remarks usually are. Why?….because the Jewish controlled media didn’t want it to become a topic. I guarantee Putin knows everything the Jewish oligarchs are up to and is no doubt getting some satisfaction in how they and the Israelis are screwing America.

    Analysis : The Countless Israeli Connections to Mueller’s Probe of Trump and Russia

    The Israel-lobbyists, Netanyahu cronies, psyops manipulators and well-connected oligarchs — could it all be just one big coincidence?

    Haaretz

    *Know your oligarch: A guide to the Jewish billionaires in the Trump-Russia probe
    *Mueller investigators questioned witnesses in Israel and seized computers, report says
    *Jared Kushner’s business interests in Israel revealed in full

    (excerpts)

    The Israeli media usually takes scant interest in Robert Mueller’s investigations. It prefers to dwell on Donald Trump’s supposedly pro-Israeli policies. Last week’s report in the New York Times about the participation of Joel Zamel, the Australian-born “Israeli specialist in social media manipulation,” in an August 3, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in New York was an exception to the rule. The FBI, the Times reported, had even come to Israel to search the offices of Zamel’s company. Here was a direct Israeli link to the scandal that has bewitched much of America since Trump was first elected.

    The moment of fleeting interest was followed up by a report, published by Walla! News, that another Israeli-based company called Inspiration, run by former IDF intelligence officers, had been employed by a super PAC that supported Trump’s election. The report alleged that after retiring from the race, Housing Secretary and then-candidate Ben Carson personally presented Trump with Inspiration’s plan for voter manipulation in swing states. A source in the company told Walla! that Inspiration had received “enormous amounts” of information from the Super PAC, which it then used to compose strategies and slogans that would elevate Trump and “float all kinds of things” about Hillary Clinton.
    The two separate cases of Israeli involvement fed into sometimes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that seek to place Israel on the same level as Russia in its intervention in the 2016 presidential elections. In Israel’s case, however, there is no indication or allegation of direct government involvement or of Mueller’s interest. Nonetheless, beyond Zamel and Inspiration, a disturbing number of the main players implicated so far in Mueller’s investigation, many of them of Russian origin, have a direct link to Israel in their past or present.

    Interestingly, a BBC story published this week about payments made to Michael Cohen by Ukraine in order to secure a long White House meeting with Trump for Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko notes that the approach to Trump’s lawyer was made through attendees at a Chabad function in Port Washington, New York.
    (The Chabad is Kushners Jewish contact)

    Exactly! What makes the situation so *totally* insane is that one of America’s relatively few great advantages is the dollar’s role as the international currency, and they’re basically destroying it.

    Another pillar of the dollar’s reserve role is the Saudi requirement that their oil be purchased in dollars and since that 33-year-old MSM idiot has apparently started dismembering his prominent critics in foreign countries, I doubt if he’ll be around much longer.

    Once the international use of the dollar collapses so will its value, given our horrendous budget and trade deficits, and Americans will discover just how totally impoverished they currently are. At which point, it wouldn’t much surprise me if most of our incompetent ruling elites need to flee or be guillotined. I just hope they don’t start a nuclear war along the way.

    The only good thing about having an insane leadership elite is that they often destroy themselves more quickly than they can destroy the people they rule.

    “Uncle Sam has got biological weapons factories all round the former Soviet Union in countries like Georgia, Kazakhstan. I think there are about 20 of them. The people who work there have all got diplomatic status, so they can move across borders without being checked. They are known to have been collecting DNA samples from Russians, supposedly for some kind of “ethnic bomb.” I’m not sure how this would work, given the 100+ nationalities in Russia, but they’re obviously up to no good. This takes some front when they’re issuing ultimatums to Russia to confess to a non existent biological weapons programme. But you can do that when you’re “exceptional.” Personally, I never stand behind an American for fear of being blinded by the sun shining out of their a***holes.

    They did something similar in Afghanistan. They recruited Save The Children to collect DNA samples for the CIA under the guise of vaccinating children. This was then used for targeting drone strikes. Not surprisingly, the locals weren’t too impressed, and if any genuine health workers turn up in their villages trying to vaccinate children now, they shoot first and ask questions later. As a result, polio, which was virtually eradicated, has been making a comeback. If it spreads back here, then the NHS will have to go back to a comprehensive vaccination campaign against it costing billions. But when you’re “exceptional,” little things like that don’t matter.

    Just after that, Save The Children gave their “Humanitarian Of The Year” Award to our very own Tony Blair. Nice to know that all that charity money is being put to good use.”

    Wages have stagnated since 1970. It was capitalist policy to force all the married women into the workplace thus increasing the work force by about one third and forcing every married couple to have 2 wage earners to buy what one wage earner could but 5 years later.

    It gave the capitalists what they wanted; 2 wage earners for the price of one.

    Anyone who thinks the feminazis were tools of the left are mistaken. They were nothing more than a front group for the capitalists who successfully rolled back every gain employees(labor) made since 1880.

    Every person who gets a paycheck from someone else is an employee ( labor) no matter how many advanced degrees you have or what your job title.

Connecting the dots, well let’s just forget it, and keep digging potholes, with little or no association between one another. We call it “lineal narratives”, fairy tales for adults, and a living for middle class serfs to the master class.

A short notice would be helpful. “A made fortune in software”, and thus convention, the banking sector?, sounds like a variant of classical Chomsky, and not good enough to keep you doing what you fully understand, “educating the public” being a moron’s task.

    It was capitalist policy to force all the married women into the workplace

    In part, it was also Bolshevik (Feminist) policy. Feminism’s main goal is to destroy the institution of the family, which is one of the three primary goals of the Communist Manifesto (the other two being: destroying religion and destroying the nation state). Gay rights, transgenderism, genetic engineering, no-fault divorce and public education, all to various extends related to feminism, will combine to destroy the family. Religion in the West has obviously already been destroyed, in the US they mainly used the Supreme Court and the mass media for that. The nation state is being destroyed with the Global Carbon Tax scam, “open borders”, “supranational states”, free-trade agreements and the like.

    It gave the capitalists what they wanted; 2 wage earners for the price of one.

    Who benefits even more than the “capitalists” is the Bolsheviks, particularly, the State. Before women entered the workforce, they worked at home, providing daycare, food preparation, house-cleaning, etc. This created value, but was not taxable. By placing women in the workplace, and requiring households to outsource the tasks theretofore performed by them, they managed to tax another huge segment of the population. Of course the capitalists also tax workers in terms of “surplus value”, but the government tax is significantly higher.

    That this is not a particularly “capitalist” policy is supported by the fact that Communist countries also had women work away from the home.

    We were the hardest working nation on earth….and had the numbers to PROVE IT !
    We had a GDP to Debt ratio of almost 2 to 1 (9.8T to 5.6T) representing 25% of the WORLDS PRODUCTIVITY !
    We were operating at a federal SURPLUS of almost 200 billion per year, paying down our debt.
    We were a nation of FREE MEN, whose constitution guaranteed each of us, the right to pursue our own potential, and capture the American Dream.

    If there was another nations currency, anywhere, which could even come close…..WHERE WAS IT ?

    Then, post 9-11, the “neocons” took over the shop.

    https://williamblum.org/essays/read/overthrowing-other-peoples-governments-the-master-list

  152. I respect Gareth Porter. His recent article gives pause for thought re: Trump, here are some excerpts:https://russia-insider.com/en/trump-has-done-more-take-and-take-down-american-empire-any-other-president/ri24992

    Trump Has Done More to Take On and Take Down the American Empire Than Any Other President

    More than any other presidency in modern history, Donald Trump’s has been a veritable sociopolitical wrecking ball, deliberately stoking conflict by playing to xenophobic and racist currents in American society and debasing its political discourse. That fact has been widely discussed. But Trump’s attacks on the system of the global U.S. military presence and commitments have gotten far less notice.

    It doesn’t take away from the fact that he has failed to deliver on some key promises, but it does provide a slightly more nuanced perspective:

    He has complained bitterly, both in public and in private meetings with aides, about the suite of permanent wars that the Pentagon has been fighting for many years across the Greater Middle East and Africa, as well as about deployments and commitments to South Korea and NATO. This has resulted in an unprecedented struggle between a sitting president and the national security state over a global US military empire that has been sacrosanct in American politics since early in the Cold War.

    I remember this incident:

    In a meeting with his national security team in the summer of 2017, in which Secretary of Defense James Mattis recommended new military measures against Islamic State affiliates in North Africa, Trump expressed his frustration with the unending wars. “You guys want me to send troops everywhere,” Trump said, according to a Washington Post report. “What’s the justification?”

    Mattis replied, “Sir, we’re doing it to prevent a bomb from going off in Times Square,” to which Trump angrily retorted that the same argument could be made about virtually any country on the planet.

    Are you starting to get the picture? There are dark forces at play here and Trump is not strong enough to overpower them:

    Trump’s national security team became so alarmed about his questioning of US military engagements and forward deployment of troops that they felt something had to be done to turn him around. Mattis proposed to take Trump away from the White House into “the Tank” at the Pentagon, where the Joint Chiefs of Staff held their meetings, hoping to drive home their arguments more effectively.

    It was there, on July 20, 2017, that Mattis, then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other senior officials sought to impress on Trump the vital importance of maintaining existing US worldwide military commitments and deployments. Mattis used the standard Bush and Obama administration rhetoric of globalism

    This is not an attempt to apologize for Trump’s failures, but we need to be more strategic. Just attacking him plays into the hands of the deep state.

    Trump said nothing, according to Woodward’s account, but simply shook his head in disagreement. He eventually steered the discussion to an issue that was particularly irritating to him: US military and economic relations with South Korea. “We spend $3.5 billion a year to have troops in South Korea,” Trump complained. “I don’t know why they’re there. … Let’s bring them all home!”

    At that, Trump’s chief of staff at the time, Reince Priebus, recognizing that the national security team’s effort to get control of Trump’s opposition to their wars and troop deployments had been an utter failure, called a halt to the meeting.

    Again, Trump has to take the blame for putting these vipers into power, but attacking Trump doesn’t change the picture:

    But such arguments made no impression on Trump, who saw no value in having troops abroad at a time when the United States itself was crumbling. “We have [spent] $7 trillion in the Middle East,” Trump said at the end of the meeting. “We can’t even muster $1 trillion for domestic infrastructure.

    Perhaps not the strong man we need to drain the swamp, but it does show that his heart is in the right place – he is just unable to execute on his vision. The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak – a biblical reference that captures the sentiment.

    “I still think you’re wrong” [about the war], Trump said, [it] “hasn’t gotten us anything.” But he went along with Mattis and announced that he had been convinced to go against his own “instincts” by approving the 4,000-troop increase.

    I encourage Unzers to go read the article in its entirety and form your own opinions about this man.

    But Trump’s unorthodox approach has already emboldened him to challenge the essential logic of the US military empire more than any previous president. And the final years of his administration will certainly bring further struggles over the issues on which he has jousted repeatedly with those in charge of the empire

    .

    Gareth may be completely wrong about Trump, but I don’t want my attitude or actions against Trump to cause the deep state to win. A CEO at one of the companies that I was on the board of, once asked me: Do you want to be right, or do you want to win?

    Introductory paragraphs from Jennifer Rubin’s latest column, Why Nikki Haley’s resignation is no surprise:

    Count me among those least surprised that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is departing. I’ve repeatedly urged she do just that to preserve her reputation and political viability and to get out before the special counsel’s report lands. Aside from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, she is the only Cabinet-level official whose stature has arguably increased (or at least not decreased) during her time in the administration. She is the only one with a political future who can say that.

    Haley was a forceful advocate at the United Nations, a staunch ally of Israel and, in an administration that pandered to dictators, a credible voice for human rights.

    She enumerates the following four options.

    First, she has invaluable insight into the president’s mental condition and temperament…

    Second, she might simply bide her time, waiting for the Trump administration to collapse under the weight of multiple investigations…

    Third, she might prepare to primary fellow South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey O. Graham, who is up for reelection in 2020…

    Fourth, if Trump’s grip on the GOP remains — and his attacks on the rule of law, facts, women and decency continue — she would be an entirely credible member either at the top of or in the No. 2 slot on a center-right independent ticket, especially if the Democrats choose a far-left candidate with limited appeal. Haley-Murkowski? Kasich-Haley, or Haley-Kasich? Haley-Heitkamp? There are oodles of options.

    (What we do about that beyond investigating is far from clear, but if Haley knows of a risk to the country, she is obligated to come forward.)

    Yes, of course, Jennifer. If anyone knows of a risk to the country, they are obligated to come forward. One question, Jenn: does that include the tiny risk that Israel has, as Profs Mearsheimer and Walt put it:

    … managed to divert U.S. foreign policy as far from what the American national interest would otherwise suggest…

    Wow, I’m simply in awe of how The Lobby can so easily accuse liberal goyim of hijacking progressive ideals, while at the same time condemn non-liberal goyim who accuse The Lobby of hijacking the US gov’t. This is simply beyond everyday Chutzpah. This is Chutzpah to the nth degree!

    Take a gander (my commentary bolded in square brackets):

    TIP CEO: “Progressive Ideals Have Been Hijacked by Anti-Semites”

    In a speech to the Beth Am congregation in Los Altos Hills, California, on Friday evening, Joshua S. Block, CEO and President of The Israel Project, warned of the rise of far-left anti-Semitism [WTF is that? Far left? You got to be kidding me? Both Blair and Bubba destroyed the last remnants of the labour party (which represented the interests of the working class) into a subsidiary of big business and this guy has the cahones to label today’s labour parties “far left”?], which he described as “cloaked in the language of progressive idealism and far more nuanced than traditional alt-right anti-Semitism.”

    According to Block, “for most of us, there is a reflexive tendency to think about anti-Semitism as something that is propagated by the alt-right,” such as the march on Charlottesville last year. However, Block asked, “what happens when the hate comes from somewhere unexpected, somewhere much closer to home?” [Ooh, cue the scary music, lol]

    This form of far-left anti-Semitism has a name, Block said [Get ready for this]. “Intersectionality is the radical academic theory which holds that all forms of social oppression are inexorably linked. It has become a code word for anti-American, anti-Western, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic bigotry.” [I read this sentence ten times and I still don’t understand a single word of it... intersectionality? really? Where do they get this sh*t from?]

    For his claim, Block referenced several examples, including that of Palestinian anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour, an organizer of the Women’s March who recently said Muslims must not “humanize” Zionists.

    “Imagine if Sarsour had made those comments about any other minority. The Left would be up in arms,” Block observed. “But because Jews are increasingly seen as persona non-grata among America’s far Left, Sarsour is celebrated as a heroine of the progressive movement.”

    According to Block, “extreme anti-Jewish and anti-Israel sentiments” have been parachuted “from the obscure fringes of the political spectrum into the mainstream,” not least by far-left [there’s that BS label again]movement such as the Labour Party in the United Kingdom under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.

    “There is only one Israel and we don’t get the luxury of being supportive one year and not the next,” he said.

    “This trend can’t be allowed to continue,” Block said. “Make no mistake, this is a war for the soul of the progressive movement.” [Only Josh and his co-religionists are permitted to use such strident language. If a goy tried doing the same, they’d have him hanged, drawn and quartered].

    Aside from the economic issues (and, honestly, leaving aside how filthy rich the oligarchs are, people, even poor people, have it way better off than anytime in history – I’ve often made the argument, quite persuasively, that a poor working man in US today has a better life than King Louis XIV), I feel I have a lot of freedom in capitalism that doesn’t exist in Communism. I would never want to live in Communist China, no way, despite the fact that it is no longer as Communist as it once was (on the economic front, at least, it has liberalized considerably).

    But you are right in one respect, both systems concentrate power in an oligarchy. We have a lot of filthy rich men in the US – the public ones, never mind the dynasties / clans – who are multi multi billionaires and contribute virtually nothing to society. In fact in many cases I would say they are a positively negative influence, are criminals. The same holds in Communism. But in Chinese Communism, at least it appears on the surface, the ethnicity is not the same.

    When I was in college a professor with experience in the field explained to me how “foreign assistance programs” work.

    In the first instance, the funds are used to build infrastructure that is of little if any use to the locals, but helps some connected capitalist exploit the country at a cheaper rate of investment. I.e, corporate welfare/cronyism.

    In the second instance, it is subsidies for specific industries, like the MIC or farmers. That people get killed or saved is a side effect, not the goal. I.e., corporate welfare/cronyism.

    In the third instance, it is recent college grads who know nothing about a poor country writing a report about it, for whom the government pays say $200 / hr, to produce a worthless report that won’t improve anything. The college grad makes $30 / hr. The rest goes into the pockets of the connected capitalist who was able to secure the contract. I.e., corporate welfare/cronyism.

    Where Haley goes will be interesting…she needs money.

    Nikki Haley lists up to $1 million in debt as she steps down as U.N. ambassador
    By Andrew Brown and Andy Shain [email protected] [email protected]

    COLUMBIA — Nikki Haley’s political capital and foreign policy credentials skyrocketed during her time as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, but one aspect of the former South Carolina governor’s life didn’t get the same boost: her personal finances.
    Federal ethics reports show Haley had debt from $525,000 to about $1.1 million in 2017, the latest year available.
    Her U.N. office put Haley’s overall current debt at less than $500,000 but did not offer specifics. Haley’s office added her debts were not why she announced Tuesday that she will resign at the end of the year
    Haley listed ranges of debt and income on the federal income disclosure records. As of last year, she owed $25,000 to $65,000 on two credit cards and listed a mortgage and a line of credit each for $250,000 to $500,000.
    She claimed to have $1,000 to $15,000 in the bank and earned roughly $10,000 last year with a month’s salary as governor before she was confirmed as ambassador. She also listed that she made no money last year from her 2012 memoir “Can’t is Not an Option.”
    Her earnings did not include her salary at the U.N., which is about $180,000 a year
    Michael Haley earned $50,000 to $100,000 last year from a Lexington shopping center he bought from the ambassador’s parents and had $15,000 to $50,000 in a bank account, according to Nikki Haley’s disclosure form. Michael Haley works for the S.C. National Guard.
    Haley’s planned resignation from the U.N. was a surprise to many, creating a frenzy of speculation about why she would leave the influential Cabinet position. Former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford, now a congressman, told MSNBC that her departure at the end of the year did not pass his smell test.
    Haley suggested she is about to find a job after six years in the South Carolina governor’s office and two years as United Nations ambassador.
    In her resignation letter to President Donald Trump, she wrote: “As a businessman, I expect you will appreciate my sense that returning from government to the private sector is not a step down but a step up.”
    A spokeswoman for Haley sent a statement that said, “The Haleys’ debt that was disclosed in 2017 is very different from what it is today. … Their current debt level is well below $500,000, and it had no bearing whatsoever on Ambassador Haley’s decision to leave her position.”
    Haley’s finances have received attention in the past, notably how they see-sawed before she became governor 2010.
    But some of Haley’s relatives also are having financial issues.

    The home of Haley’s parents, Ajit and Raj Randhawa, is going through foreclosure, according to court records.
    A hearing with the Lexington master-in-equity for the 5,487-square-foot lakefront home valued at $1.1 million is scheduled for Oct. 30.
    The Randhawas owe $740,708 according to court documents.

    By the way, your tremendous effort, undoubtedly, what is your ego and financial motivation for it, dare we ask?

    Well, most of my motives are rather obvious ones, e.g. WW3 being a really bad idea. But there is an additional one…

    I’d say that the concentration of Jewish-activists in ADL/AIPAC/etc is an *exceptionally* powerful political/ideological force as we can obviously see by the trajectory of the last couple of decades. So taking them on is a very worthy challenge.

    Probably most of you aren’t aware of it, but for decades the bilinguals were regarded as absolutely invincible, easily crushing all attacks against them from President Reagan on down. Then I came along in 1998 and completely broke them in twelve months, afterwards spending the next few years in mopping-up operations. I ultimately annihilated them so thoroughly that most people have forgotten they ever existed, let alone how enormously powerful they were.

    And just about the only major economic victory achieved by ordinary workers or labor unions in the last half-century have been the tremendously successful recent campaigns for huge hikes in the Minimum Wage. And frankly, I think my own efforts were a very substantial part of that success.

    So the extremely formidable power of the ADL and its allies is actually a rather tempting target…

    Hypothesis: TPTB will collapse the economy due to a “nationalistic trade war”, which will fester for many years to turn into the “nationalistic WW III”, which will cause a lot of damage but not be too nuclear, perhaps some bio-weapons to cull the population, out of which will arise, as a dialectical result (the Oligarchs just love dialectical development) of the “nationalistic fervor” (haw haw) unleashed by the Mushroom and “populists” globally, a Global Government with a Carbon Tax to fund it (already there is talk of a carbon tax of $30/gallon of petroleum), a Omnipresent Surveillance State and an Omniscient AI Police State.

    The New Yorker does good background pieces….here’s a deep look at Pence. Scary guy.

    .The Danger of President Pence

    https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/10/23/the-danger-of-president-pence

    And a liite blurb below about Ivanka meddling , in this case spured by Jared no doubt.

    ”Another consequence of Trump’s choice for Vice-President may be the widening federal investigation into possible connections between his campaign and the Russian government. Before Pence took over the transition team, Christie had warned Trump not to give a high-level job to the retired general Michael Flynn, whose financial ties to foreign interests triggered the investigation. Flynn, whom Obama had fired as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was not on any of the original transition team’s long lists for government appointments. Christie considered him too risky.
    On November 11, 2016, Christie was chairing a transition meeting, when, according to four sources, Flynn walked in with an ally, General Keith Kellogg. “Gentlemen, can I help you?” Christie asked. Ivanka Trump, who was a member of the transition team’s executive council, announced that she had invited them. Christie tried to reclaim control of the meeting, but Ivanka took over. Praising Flynn’s “amazing loyalty to my father,” she turned to him and asked, “General, what job do you want?” A participant at the meeting said, “It was like Princess Ivanka had laid the sword on Flynn’s shoulders and said, ‘Rise and go forth.’ ” (A source close to Ivanka didn’t deny the account, but said that it exaggerated her role, and that she was merely trying to show appreciation for Flynn’s support.)”
    A few hours later, Christie was deposed. Kushner, he felt, had humiliated him a second time. Bannon, who was given the job of dismissing him, admitted to Christie that Kushner had been against him all along, for personal reasons.”

    “Now we can only pray Trump replaces her with someone who will actually carry out his campaign promise of no more wars — Tulsi Gabbard.”

    Gabbard would only go for that in exchange for an implicit guarantee to replace Pence on the VP ticket with her down the road after she changes parties; otherwise, she’d be trading one valuable job for another where she could be fired on a whim, despite the obvious advantage in terms of increasing name recognition that the ambassador gig would yield. This is actually something a lot of people would support as about a third of Trump supporters admire the woman for standing up to the warmongers on the issue of Syria. Also, as a vet, she’d be popular enough with the GOP. The alternative is to run as a democrat in 2020, but there are several problems with her that would preclude her from getting the nomination:

    1. I believe she married a white man and racist black voters in Southern primary states hate that kind of race mixing (ask Nicole Brown Simpson about that)

    2. She’s not black but Hawaiian, so Kamala Harris and Cory Booker would beat her in heavily black Southern states.

    3. She has spoken out against belligerent military polices in the Middle East, including questioning the Syrian Gas Hoax narrative, causing the Democrat elite like Howard Dean to attack her – even threatening to “primary” her; so, there goes her financial support.

    However, putting her as the VP on Trump’s 2020 ticket might be just the trick Donald would need to ensure re-election. It would defuse many left-wing talking points while also uniting anti-war Gary Johnson types behind him. The Left falsely believes Hillary “won” the popular vote when she merely got a plurality. The two white guys combined for about 2-3 million more votes than she did. Trump has room for improvement.

The effort is not a cheap one, there must be interested financing in the background, of third parties. It would be enlightening to know on what the pool consists of.

    Alexander, I understand your view and certainly things have got much worse since 2000 but the seeds of doom were planted far earlier and were already sprouting in the 1990s

    Think: the origin of the National Security State was definitely in the 1950s – Eisenhower’s farewell address referenced it

    Think: the removal of constitutional restraints over Presidential war making began with Korea, accelerated with the Gulf of Tonkin and Vietnam and by the 1990s Bill Clinton was bombing Serbia and Sudan using Area Force resolutions

    Think: the destruction of American manufacturing started in the mid 70s accelerated in the 80s and NAFTA set the stage for general outsourcing in the 1990s.

    Think: Political Assassination and Intrigue: Began witb the Kennedys and King then the take down of Nixon through Watergate. The CIA were infiltrating Europen political parties through Operation Gladio as early as the late 40s. By the 70s and 80s they were bombing in the guise of the Red Brigade planes and railway stations in Italy

    Think Media complicity in particular narratives. Started with the takedown of McCarthy then the Kennedys and King again, then by the 1990s you have the Oklahoma lone nut bombing and the shootdown of TWA 800, expertly described by Ron in his American Pravda series

    Think: the groundwork for the Cultural Marxism of today began with the so called Sexual Revolution of the 60s but really got its kick from the dumbing down of Education standards and the infusion of propaganda narratives from the 1960s onwards.

    It’s absolutely true we weren’t aware of it or only dimly but the seeds were planted earlier and now we are reaping its bitter harvest.

    There’s a joke people are telling in Israel about Nikki Haley, President Trump’s Ambassador to the United Nations who just announced she would be stepping down in January. The joke’s setting is Mea Shearim, one of Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods. Nine men are seeking a tenth to complete the quorum necessary for prayers. Just as they are despairing, one of them spots Nikki Haley walking down the street.

    “Davenin, Davenin!” He shouts at her. “Come complete our minyan!”

    Of course, Orthodox Jews don’t count women in a minyan; that’s the joke – that for Nikki Haley, they would make an exception.

    Great points.

    Also, notice how the need for workers during WW2 got women into the workforce outside the home and the nation used to the idea that women could be employed to do the work traditionally done by men. Post WW2 subsidized schooling also contributed to cementing the idea in the minds of ‘Merkins too.

    Furthermore, schools are essentially baby sitting organizations that make it convenient for the moms to get out of the house to serve their real masters, among other things such as removing the ability of parents to significantly impart their values to their kids and substituting brainwashing with the values that serve our corporate masters. The whole system is sick.

    WW2…the gift that keeps on giving; to the ruling schmucks.

    “But in reality the abolition of serfdom and of slavery was only the abolition of an obsolete form of slavery that had become unnecessary, and the substitution for it of a firmer form of slavery and one that holds a greater number of people in bondage.”

    In the case of communism, it is supposedly the commune; in reality it’s just another way of benefitting the ruling clique. Bolshevism merely transferred wealth to a different set of liars, murderers and thieves and did it with the support of one particular bunch of mega-rich arseholes.

    Our pentagon has become a lot like a heroin addict, only its addiction is not to heroin, nor to war…Its addiction is to “war profiteering” and massive systemic pilfering.

    There is not an American alive who can tell how much, out of every dollar we have spent , has gone directly into the pockets of our war mongering elites…as pure profit.

    We have no clue..we literally have NO CLUE.

    There are no audits, no disclosures,….Nothing.

    Its like a big, black, five sided box sucking in trillions upon trillions of taxpayer dollars with no accountability anywhere for as far as the eye can see.

    There are things we can, however, figure out.

    We know, for example, we have budgeted in,on average, approximately 550 billion per year every year since 2000. This is taxpayer money already allocated , already spent.

    Lets assume, for arguments sake, that ten percent of that 550 goes to profits,this leaves 500 billion of taxpayer money which goes to our actual defense.

    In my book that’s fine (its a lot) but its fine.

    The problem is, I have no way of knowing what percentage is what…Nobody does.

    I don’t know whether the war profiteers are extracting ten percent, twenty percent, forty percent, sixty percent….or even seventy percent.

    Even within the pentagon’s budget we have already paid for with our tax dollars…we don’t really know what the profits are….This is important in gauging both our true “defense” readiness….and our bang for the buck.

    Consider for a moment, that are war profiteers are pocketing fifty percent in pure profits…this leaves our actual spending on our defense at 225 billion per year….Not much more than China spends today.

    Then there is our government “overspending” since 9-11.

    Our government has OVERSPENT its budget by 800 billion per year, (on average) every year, since 2000…Bringing our nations overspending to about 16 trillion dollars in just 18 years.

    All of this overspending went to our big bank bailout and to the wars in Iraq,Afghanistan,Libya,and Syria (and wherever else).

    I cannot tell you how it splits out.

    Of the 16 trillion in total overspending…did we spend 5 trillion on the Big banks, 4 trillion?

    Lets “assume” we spent 6 trillion on the big banks…..that leaves 10 trillion in overspending on the wars.

    I have no clue what percentage of that 10 trillion in overspending on the wars..is pure profit and pilfering for our war profiteers….and what percentage is actual cost….. because our Pentagon will not tell us.

    The Brown University study said zilch about profit percentages., just estimated the breakdown of costs….

    The actual ….”true “… war costs could have been only 200 billion, but they billed out two trillion and our war profiteers pocketed 1.2 trillion in “pure profit”.

    which brings us all to what………”Citizens United”.

    The key “preemptive law” passed by our supreme court, guaranteeing our war profiteers the right to “buy out” every single elected representative of the American people, until the end of time.

    We were the free-est nation on earth.

    You’ve got to be a dumb American to believe that load of nonsense.

    True. It makes on wonder what these people regard as freedom and whether they’ve ever experienced any other “culture.” In fact, there are many places that have long been much freer.

    The “anti federalist” arguments regarding loss of freedom were about 99% correct and here’s but one example.

    Here we conceive the people may be very materially injured, and in time reduced to a state of as abject vassalage as any people were under the control of the most mercenary despot that ever tarnished the pages of history. The depravity of human nature, illustrated by examples from history, will warrant us to say, it may be possible, if not probable, that the congress may be composed of men, who will wish to burden and oppress the people.

    But says the advocates for the constitution, “it is not likely this will ever happen; we are not to expect our rulers will ever proceed to a wanton exercise of the powers given them.” But what reason have we more than past ages, to expect that we shall be blessed with impeccable rulers? We think not any. Although it has been said that every generation grows wiser and wiser, yet we have no reason to think they grow better and better. And therefore the probability lies upon the dark side. Does not the experience of past ages teach, that men have generally exercised all the powers they had given them, and even have usurped upon them, in order to accomplish their own sinister and avaricious designs, whenever they thought they could do it with impunity? This we presume will not be denied. And it appeared to us that the arguments made use of by the favorers of the constitution, in the late convention at Boston, proceeded upon the plan of righteousness in those who are to rule over us, by virtue of this new form of government. But these arguments, we confess, could have no weight with us, while we judge them to be founded altogether upon a slippery perhaps.

    But as for the alt-right types aversion to Soros, (if I may speak for them) we consider the ethnic and cultural identity of Western civilization as something worth preserving. And that by opening the borders of Europe to unlimited throngs of military age young Arabs and Africans (and everybody else), will cause unpleasant strife in the short term, and irreparable harm to the lands of our ancestors, and the hopes for their progeny to maintain their identity. An identity that some of us consider worthy of persevering.

    I too agree with Soros on some things. I don’t approve of the war on drugs, as it’s been fought over the last few decades, and like Soros, I’d like to see marijuana de-criminalized.

    But where many of us draw the line with Soros, is his imperative that Western civilization die under a tsunami of non-Western immigration/blending.

    Trump is clearly a fraud

    Depending on your definition of fraud, he may well be one, although one could question “clearly”. My current thinking (and it does vary based on events and actions by him) is that he does want to do the right thing, but is unable to because of either inability, blackmail, weak character, fear, insecurity, …, etc., and that could be described as fraud.

    We can accept that and choose to do nothing. We have no other alternative strategy that is apparent.

    Or, we can believe (with a high likelihood of disappointment) that he is trying to fight the forces of darkness, but stands alone in the middle of the room with enemies on all sides, and choose not to side with his enemies, who are our enemies as well.

    We can choose not to help him, but perhaps also choose not to be among the rock-flingers that weaken him further.

  267. Netanyahu’s Wet Dreams as reported by Debka.com

    Not one Palestine State but two Palestine States.

    Gaza will be a State itself, under the rule of Hamas. Part of Egypt territory will be added to Gaza. Jared and Qatar are for it, and since Turkey is Qatar’s friend, they will join in this endeavor too.

    West Bank will be State itself. Trump and Saudi Arabia (MBS) are lately having falling out with each other, especially due to Khashoggi’s saga. Trump is also not pleased with bad behavior of Abbas. This State if it materialize will be under siege, the odds for this State gaining independence are almost none to nothing.

    Hi C&D,

    By making a decision to become ZUS president, Trump strengthened Zionist Jew warmongering and thereby weakened himself. He can only look within now, summon courage and be willing to take a hit.

    Fyi, in James Douglass’s important book “JFK & The Unspeakable,”Trappist monk Thomas Merton’s letters to Kennedy’s sister Ethel take front & center. Please refer to the informative article below, Cloak?

    http://www.dcdave.com/article5/180129.htm

    Regrettably, Paul Craig Roberts read & praised the book, but he ill-advised readers to passover stuff about Thomas Merton’s coining of the “Unspeakable.”

    As expressed to Ethel Kennedy, Thomas Merton’s deep fear was that JFK did not have the inner strength & conviction needed to take a principled stand against the NB nation-killing Pentagon, M.I.C. war/profit machine, and anti-American Israeli fanatics

    Suppose we’ll never know actual names of the multiple “Unspeakables” who the daring JFK feared most.

    Nonetheless questions, C&D-Lite.

    Who most ideologically benefited from the president’s murder in Dallas? Who had motive, capability, plausible deniability, and U.S. Federal Reserve coup d’etat practice? (Zigh)

    Sharpen 1st Amendment Dagger! Thank you.

    I “think ” you are absolutely right.

    All the seeds of our belligerent, murderous, solvency swallowing , unaccountable “Deep State” were planted much earlier.

    I do believe, however, the hinge of American history turns in the post 9-11 era on our oligarchs determination to commit the supreme crime of humanity……”war of aggression”.

    It was absolutely unthinkable, for most Americans, and most of their representatives, to ever even consider “war of aggression” as an option, for anything.

    So ingrained, in all of us, that “mass murder” is a heinous, heinous crime.

    Yet, our “elites” managed, through their clever deceptions, to make it happen.

    This changed “us”, transformed our country into something we never believed it could become.

    This is the crisis all Americans face,whether we recognize it or not, our nation has been defrauded by our “elites” into committing the worst crime we could ever possibly commit..How do we deal with that ?.

    It is such a shameful, ….. horrible thing.

    Maybe you are right.

    The eternal thing still stays: “power corrupts”.

    Maybe thinking about correct society isn’t what we, at the moment, should be focused on spending our time and energies on.
    Maybe thinking of something just not as bad as the current is (and looking to get worse) is where the effort should be.

    Because, at the end of the day, really, can we, humans, even have a correct society?
    Maybe the trick is in accepting what we are (or better, what we aren’t….), what we can (or, better, what we can’t) and work from there.

    Accepting, ultimately, that, well, we aren’t that smart and good as we like to think we are.

    On practical level:
    Yes, Asange could be plant and part of the “bad guys” plan. Doesn’t matter. He did bring something good.
    Yes, Unz and his team/backers could have nefarious motives. Doesn’t matter. They maintain this site I can type this on. Good enough.

    Then, it goes darker, or course. That desire to bring down to our level those better than us. Feels good.
    Actually…..feels even better if/when we bring them below us. We are better than them now. That feels great.
    Goes deeper and darker from there sometimes, but, that’s not for an online pub talk.

    And:
    By focusing on “proper”, “best”, “ideal”, meaning “see, can’t be done” people actually absolve themselves from even trying. That feels good too.

    As to what you call pedantry in seeking to minimise PCR’s admittedly petty solecism, I point out that such niceties can make the difference between conviction and acquittal for fraud. In the current instance a defamation action might provide better illustration of the problem. His credit as an impartial witness might be impugned and if he were defendant and the issue was malice the choice to suggest she “served” Israel (i.e. took directions or orders from it) rather than merely supported it by speaking up in a supportive way could cost a lot in damages.

    Absolutely correct. So, with that being said, what comes next? Well, if I were in charge, I’d institute a voluntary genetic engineering program aimed at 1.) increasing the mean IQ to 140+ 2.) altering the mean personality type to be center-right. If these two objectives were accomplished over the next 50 years, the year 2100 would be a paradise akin to Star Trek: no crime, high quality culture, peace and understanding – at least to a much higher degree than present…and all without the need for a police state. Now, it’s not really as simple as that; this will be harder than the moon landing to accomplish, but it could be done without violating any known moral principle because it’s voluntary and open to all regardless of expense. All we need is someone like me in charge to implement the program. Simple, right? The fact that there are options like this one available that would fix basically all human problems – moral, financial, and political – within a couple of generations but yet humans can’t even think about the topic seriously says quite a bit about how far we have to go as a species.

That is because its was the first step, DEBKAfile reports, towards implementing the administration’s Israel-Palestinian peace plan, partnered with Israel and Egypt, to eventually separate the Gaza Strip from Judea and Samaria (West Bank) to form two separate Palestinian entities.

    New rules proposed by the Trump administration and Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke will impose steep fees and costs on demonstrations in Washington, D.C; effectively ban protests on the White House sidewalks; force protesters to pay the costs of barricades erected at police discretion, park ranger wages and overtime, and harm to grass from standing on it; create waiting periods removing any obligation of the government to promptly process or approve permits; restrict and suppress spontaneous demonstrations that respond to breaking events; create hair-triggers allowing police to end protests for the most minor of issues; restrict sound and staging; ban long term vigils or protest presences; make protesters pay for expensive “turf covers,” among many other radical restrictions of free speech rights.

    These changes will affect all parkland under the National Park Service (NPS) in the nation’s capital including the National Mall, Lafayette Park, the White House Sidewalk, Lincoln Memorial, the Ellipse, Freedom Plaza and the sidewalks and parkland along Pennsylvania Avenue – including the sidewalk in front of the Trump Hotel.

    This is a dangerous anti-democratic proposal. If enacted, this will mark the end of free speech as we know it and will be a dystopian model that spreads across the county. The NPS is required by law to respond to the public’s comments on these new changes. Comment now and make them stop this proposed roll back of precious civil rights and democratic freedoms. Don’t delay – you must submit your comment by October 15.

    Rereading the comment, I forgot to put the “/s” for sarcasm. Basically, I’m the guy you’ve been looking for to fix your problems. Too bad I’m currently a nobody. We’ll see if by divine providence that changes in the future (I doubt it).

    “1. Why would the low IQ people TRUST that the high I.Q. level people, when get into power, will treat them well?”

    They shouldn’t. In fact, high IQ people don’t treat lower IQ people well now. Most of society is a shell game aimed at maximizing the comfort and luxury of those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom, with the bottom benefiting only via what trickles down. Those at the top tend to be disproportionately intelligent and/or psychopathic; hence, my desire to also alter personality types in order to remedy the exploitative situation we have now. We already know of several genes correlated with increased empathy, creativity, error avoidance, intelligence, religiosity, leadership ability, etc. We have the potential to start the process now.

    Allowing all people to ensure their progeny are smarter, better people would benefit lower IQ people as well, which is very different from the current situation where the children of the elite are automatically advantaged by accident of birth. My system would aim to ensure greater opportunity regardless of station in life – a program open to all. The disadvantaged would benefit and society at large would also benefit.

    “2. And…hehe…nothing personal, but why would anyone trust somebody like you with that power?”

    They shouldn’t…automatically. Consider the position something like being the CEO of a company. Should I continue to do well, the people will support me. If not, there will be some kind of institutional bias in place to remove me. And I’m fine with that. I do not desire power (or apparently think in the same manner) as other humans do.

    “And all that assuming that the current power would relinquish it for the common good. Just like that. Because they are good people and do care about humanity etc. Crackup.”

    They won’t. But perhaps some miracle will occur and something positive will happen. Usually what happens is that the elite get themselves into trouble only to have a popular usurper arrive on the scene and take advantage of their weakness (Napoleon, Hitler, Lenin, etc.); although, I’m a pretty swell person in contrast to those types.

    “Good you mentioned police state. Your suggestion vs that option, say…….10/90 % probability?”

    I’m afraid it’s much worse than that. Probably less than 0.1% probability. The police state option is more likely, unfortunately. In that case, the only real option after that is to hope the AI singularity happens within our lifetime and that our new computer overlord is nice to us. Sad. The Roman Empire didn’t have the science, knowledge, and tools we have now to save themselves but we still can’t save ourselves even with them.

    “Assuming that the regimes in Kremlin and Beijing keep caving in. If not, well, there is that “bang” possibility, too.”

    That’s a result of evolutionary psychology, not cognitive ability. That’s why “smart” people can also be fooled into believing in and promoting stupid things when they aren’t busy refusing to change their minds about something. People falsely believe other humans who are smarter are also wiser, but they are susceptible to the same kinds of biases as others on the left side of the Bell Curve. People also falsely believe that other people tend to base their opinions on fact. They don’t. Most people, including the cognitive elite, are like any other human: they base their opinions on affiliation and they refuse to accept contrary evidence when presented. This is actually a psychological defense mechanism that evolved to prevent stupid people from being taken advantage of by conniving, smooth-talking psychopaths eons ago. Unfortunately, that bit of genetic programing is no longer advantageous in our current society as we could simply choose to increase cognitive abilities across the board (everyone can be scammed…but it’s harder to scam a genius twice) instead of letting people remain stubborn jerks.

    I propose using genetic engineering to change that. People would not only be smarter but be engineered to be “skeptical” (increase self-reflection) as opposed to being blindly loyal to some affiliation or being concerned with not being socially ostracized. That’s the short version as it’s actually a lot more complicated than that.

    “The Wall Street military industrial complex” cannot wait to eradicate humanity, beginning with the Russians, Ukrainians and other peoples of the former USSR: https://www.globalresearch.ca/video-the-pentagons-insect-army/5656578

    “Swarms of insects, transporting genetically modified infectious viruses, attack the agricultural crops of a country and destroy its food production – this is not a science-fiction scenario, but a plan that is actually being prepared by DARPA, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
    Five scientists from one French and two German universities have revealed this information in Science, one of the world’s most prestigious scientific revues.

    …the programme is “widely perceived as an effort to develop biological agents for hostile purposes and their means of delivery”, in other words “a new form of biological weapon”. This violates the Biological Weapons Convention, which came into effect in 1975, but which has remained inactive mainly due to the refusal of the USA to accept inspections of their own laboratories.”

    — Here we are again: the “most victimized” Jewish State squealing about the alleged Iranian nuclear program while nuclear weapon-stuffed Dimona is unavailable for inspection, and the sanctimonious US squealing about “bad Assad poisoning Syrian people” while the US murderous biochemical labs are unavailable for inspections.

    These experiments, supposed to fight Hepatitis C, have cost the lives of 73 patients, of which at least 49 have been deliberately sacrificed.”

    – When the sanctimonious US will be sanctioned by the sanctimonious EU and “Skripalized” UK for the criminal activities involving biochemical WMD? A plague on both the Pentagon & NATO houses and an ebola on the Presidents’ families in the US/EU/UK.

    I indeed see in Soros the Bernard Baruch of our times.
    Baruch’s project failed completely, but cost over sixty million lives, not to speak of suffering and misery.

    Well Jiles, I disagree. Wholeheartedly disagree with that assessment. Rather, I’d say that based on your characterization, Baruch’s project was monumental, epic success!

    Not only did it wipe out scores of millions of anti-Semites, (often in the most horrific ways imaginable, as in burning them alive in Old Testament wrath) but it delivered their destinies to the tender mercies of the tribe.

    As George Soros wrangles to open the gates of the West to the Muslim and African and entire Third World, (especially Hungary, where his predecessor Bela Kun’s sadistic cruelty to the Hungarian people was legendary, even for those times)- if every last Hungarian young woman and girl were to be gang raped, “leb syle’, in much the same way England’s school girls are systematically gang raped, this would be George Soros’ greatest triumph.

    How it is possible that such men exert such an influeance baffles me.

    It shouldn’t.

    When Woodrow Wilson betrayed the Western world by handing the keys to the US Treasury over to the world’s most Satanic men, he gave them the power to print unlimited money.

    That power is what has established the reign of the tribe to unprecedented heights- near absolute power over the West.

    “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none”

    ~ Gutle Schnaper, Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s wife in 1849 on her death bed.

    And this was decades before Wilson betrayed our civilization and handed unlimited financial power to that house of Satanic hatred for the West.

    So it shouldn’t baffle you, when a tribe dedicated to the destruction of the Western world and its people has at its pleasure the power to print unlimited Fecal Reserve Notes. That gives them near infinite power to buy up nearly everything. Media, governments, and to insinuate their fellow tribal members into every nook and cranny of the centers of influence in our societies.

    Duh.

    If you’ve ever played monopoly, and the rules were changed so that the banker could hand himself a much money as he pleased, he’d win every time.

    It’s much the same today on a larger scale. They print as much lucre as suits them to reign over the dumb goyim, and watch with contempt as the doomed goys are forced to kill each other in zio-contrived wars while their nations commit depraved suicide.

    And no one seems to notice that the ones demanding all the wars, are the ones who control the central banks.

    Hey Jacques,

    our government rests upon force – as much so as any government that ever existed.

    -Lysander Spooner, No Treason No. 1 (1867)

    Lysander’s philosophy is as close to mine as anyone’s I’ve ever read.

    As I’ve mentioned before, he’s an idol of mine. No matter the ubiquitous tyranny and idiocy he found himself surrounded by, nothing and no one could put a chink in his iron will to think and decide for himself.

    He was the ultimate ‘captain of his soul’.

    Since I’ve been on this theme recently, here’s another of his quotes.

    The Rothschilds, and that class of money-lenders of whom they are the representatives and agents – men who never think of lending a shilling to their next-door neighbors, for purposes of honest industry, unless upon the most ample security, and at the highest rate of interest – stand ready, at all times, to lend money in unlimited amounts to those robbers and murderers, who call themselves governments, to be expended in shooting down those who do not submit quietly to being robbed and enslaved.

  309. Phil is captured by his past employment. He blames the CIA—as a part of the government and represented by the President—to be responsible for wars initiated by the United States. Wrong. John Perkins identifies the CIA, the US military, the IMF, the WB, and cut-outs to be the muscles for the shadow government.

    Gareth Porter (http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50373.htm ] has creditably documented Trump’s opposition to perpetual wars (as being promoted by military leaders). Unfortunately, he misses the point that wars have, and are, consistently initiated by financial interests. The government makes no profit from war. [Trump’s words at the UN are not consistent with the quotations by Porter. Has Trump been compromised ?]

    The Spanish-American War involved the sabotage of the USS Maine so the Cuban sugar industry could be seized by Wall Street interests. The thinly disguised British warship Lusitania loaded with 500 tons (some sources suggest 3000 tons) of military explosives was deliberately sacrificed — with U.S. passengers — so Wall Street could have their huge investment to European nations rescued by WW I. Robert Stinnett has documented, with official government documents obtained by FOIA in DAY OF DECEIT, that FDR connived with Wall Street imposing economic sanctions on Japan to initiate WW II. The War on Terror initiated by 9/11 has skeptics claiming a false flag government involvement. Ref. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50337.htm

    David Talbot [THE DEVIL’S CHESSBOARD] and Stephen Kinzer [THE BROTHERS] have identified Wall Street used Allen Dulles to create the CIA to hide their earlier war-mongering. John Perkins has exposed the WS pattern of economically subjugating nations using the CIA and US military. Cf. Michel Chossudovsky. William Blum has compiled a list of the multitude of international disruptions which utilize internal chaos attributed to the US government. Cf. Terry Reed, Jerome Corsi, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), Sibel Edmonds, Kevin Shipp, and other CIA whistle blowers. Globalist/ Wall Street/shadow government nefarious acts have been identified by John Stinnett, John Groden, Mark Lane, Fletcher Prouty, Philip Giraldi, Paul Craig Roberts, Sherwood Ross, Rebekah Roth and Greg Palast among others.

    Douglas Valentine, in THE CIA AS ORGANIZED CRIME, has contended CIA created chaos in SE Asia are being developed in the U.S. The ultimate goal, revealed in an internal memo, is subjugation of the US by collecting on the $21 trillion National Debt. Greece, with a total lose of sovereignty, is a prime example of Wall Street’s nefarious acts.

    Evidence of Wall Street chicanery (in the opinion of this writer) is now surfacing in the DoJ, FBI, State Department, Treasury, and others. Cf. https://www.kpbs.org/news/2018/sep/28/frontline-trumps-showdown/. Porter’s thesis on the U.S. military demanding more aggression extends (in this writer’s opinion) Wall Street actions. [Current US aggression in the ME has been linked to oil and pipelines. Afghanistan involves drugs as did Vietnam and Arkansas. If you help the CIA, you can become president (even if you are a serial rapist or do not have a valid SS number or have your law license revoked); have your wife appointed Secretary of State (and receive a DO-NOT-GO-TO-JAIL pass); and receive lucrative speaking engagements and book publishing commissions].

    If Trump wanted to strike at the Wall Street cabal, he could request the GAO conduct an audit of specific accounts of government funds involving $10 trillion annually. The accounts are exclusively handled by the FRBNY and have never been audited. Crimes are alleged to have occurred. Ref. https://thedailycoin.org/2018/08/16/a-look-at-the-federal-reserve-through-a-different-lens/.

    ADDENDUM

    Legal historians affectionately reflect on the Magna Carta as the evolutionary watershed of feudal societies to elected representation of governing rulers. Seldom is it conveyed that the revolt of the Barons, who were the king’s appointed governors of His territory, was initiated after John’s decree that the Barons must fund and staff His invasion of Normandy as instigated by London financiers. War-mongering by financiers is not a new phenomenon.

    If a similar revolt were to develop today, we might see the legislative state bodies rise up in unified protest. They might even point to the Constitutional provision that the States shall have the authority for “Appointment of (military) Officers…and the Authority of training the (called out states’) Militia” (which was to form the Standing Army). But don’t hold your breath. The constitutional prohibition of a standing army in time of undeclared war has been ineffective since 1946—and we have had perpetual war since then.

    Hey C&D (and S2C and Chuck),

    Yeah, it’s been a while. I’ve been hanging out on Mr. Karlin’s threads for a bit, so I thought I’d poke around here to see what’s been up and unfortunately came across this stuff again.

    I suspected this “Jeffery Cohen” character

    Your intuition served you well.

    What is interesting is that Mr. Cohen, in his response to me cited an article by Imam Tawhidi (the self-proclaimed “Imam of Peace”). The funny thing is, Tawhidi is like kryptonite in the Muslim community. Nobody wants to go near him because he raises so many red flags – including the fact that people like Pam Geller and Robert Spencer love the guy and he says stuff like this:

    Tawhidi is also throwing Sunnis under the bus whenever he gets a chance as well. Most Muslims don’t take him seriously, he actually seems to be more of a Sacha Baron Cohen caricature:

    For the record, I have had Shiah friends since I went to college and I’ve read some of the proclamations by Shiah scholars (many of them top-level) and none of them have been this eager to trash Sunnis or to cause divisiveness (especially in a time when conciliatory and accommodating approaches should be the call of the day given what we are seeing on the ground) as people like Mr. Cohen here or Tawhidi.

    As far Mr. Giraldi’s post, that sounds like an awesome rally and I hope it gets media coverage (though I’m not holding my breath). It’s been a while since my wife and I marched in a protest – reminds me of good times…

    … wars have, and are, consistently initiated by financial interests.

    I’ve just been re-reading Spooner, who said something very similar,

    These money-lenders, the Rothschilds, for example, say to themselves: If we lend a hundred millions sterling to the Queen and Parliament of England, it will enable them to murder twenty, fifty, or a hundred thousand people in England, Ireland, or India; and the terror inspired by such wholesale murder, will enable them to keep the whole people of those countries in subjection for twenty, or perhaps fifty, years to come; to control all their trade and industry; and to extort from them large amounts of money, under the name of taxes; and from the wealth thus extorted from them, they (the Queen and Parliament) can afford to pay us a higher rate of interest for our money than we can get in any other way. Or, if we lend this sum to the Emperor of Austria, it will enable him to murder so many of his people as to strike terror into the rest, and thus enable him to keep them in subjection, and extort money from them, for twenty or fifty years to come. And they say the same in regard to the Emperor of Russia, the King of Prussia, the Emperor of France, or any other ruler, so called, who, in their judgment, will be able, by murdering a reasonable portion of his people, to keep the rest in subjection, and extort money from them, for a long time to come, to pay the interest and principal of the money lent him.

    And why are these men so ready to lend money for murdering their fellow men? Solely for this reason, viz., that such loans are considered better investments than loans for purposes of honest industry. They pay higher rates of interest; and it is less trouble to look after them. This is the whole matter.

    It’s been a police state from the beginning. In fact, the term is a redundancy, i.e., states exist to parasitize societies and that’s why they need police and armies.

    4. All political power, as it is called, rests practically upon this matter of money. Any number of scoundrels, having money enough to start with, can establish themselves as a “government;” because, with money, they can hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort more money; and also compel general obedience to their will. It is with government, as Cæsar said it was in war, that money and soldiers mutually supported each other; that with money he could hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort money. So these villains, who call themselves governments, well understand that their power rests primarily upon money. With money they can hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort money. And, when their authority is denied, the first use they always make of money, is to hire soldiers to kill or subdue all who refuse them more money.

    ‘can it happen again ?’

    ‘It’ is the Holocaust?

    This is the thingy…

    There seems to be something in the Jewish supremacist id, (or narrative, or Zionism, or psyche, or whatever you want to call it), whereby they MUST rule in absolute terms over the non-Jews in their midst – who’re slated for slavery to the Jews by the Old Testament / Torah. Blah, blah blah. It is written’. And that failing that, all the non-Jews (Gentiles / goyim) must perish in the Jewish supremacist’s god of wrathful, tribal vengeance. (which today means being blended with into an identity-less, heritage-less, mongrel slave race ; )

    Now, where does that leave the Gentiles?

    So you see, that is the Jewish question.

    How do the Gentiles and sane Jewish people who’re unperverted by the genocidal insanity of the Torah, impress upon the Jewish supremacists that demanding the subjugation and/or obliteration of the (especially White) Gentiles, is likely to cause a backlash?

    It’s a difficult question, because as soon as you ask it, all the rabbis and leaders who’ve become fat and rich from the hysterical frothing about how evil and anti-Semetic the goyim are, will screech ‘SEE!!! I told you they would never accept their God-given states as slaves to the Jews!!

    They’re irredeemable anti-Semites! who demand to be free!! Even when it’s brutally obvious that we Jews are superior, and loved alone by god!

    ‘And yet the intransigence of the cow-like goyim to reject his role as our slave, is congenital!! ‘

    So this is the dilemma. The leadership of the Jews is operated by rabbis and others who profit off the supremacist lunacy. And so the more you point out the dangers of that lunacy, the more they'll screech that such observations are proof that the goyim are unworthy, and sinister and recalcitrant anti-Semites who MUST be mongrelized and destroyed!!!

    When I read of Mr. Unz’s designs to take on the ADL, this is getting at the crux of the matter, and might just be the single most existential battle of our times. For both the Jewish, and the rest of the people on the planet. IMHO

    For the record, I have had Shiah friends since I went to college and I’ve read some of the proclamations by Shiah scholars (many of them top-level) and none of them have been this eager to trash Sunnis or to cause divisiveness (especially in a time when conciliatory and accommodating approaches should be the call of the day given what we are seeing on the ground) as people like Mr. Cohen here or Tawhidi.

    Salam Talha,

    Unfortunately, you are selectively reading my posts. I live in Middle East and in GCC, and I keep on writing that there is a big push to reconcile the Muslims as one Ummah (Community). Now, I know you are Pakistani, who for long time are under the influence of Wahhabism and you live in USA, so you miss the heart throb of what is happening in Islamic World. I have posted earlier that with Imran Khan becoming Prime Minister of Pakistan, things will change and there will be reconciliation with Sunni and Shai, instead of Shia being mascaraed en masses by Sunni.

    [MORE]

    1. I believe both Shia and Sunni are helping USA to get rid of Israel.
    2. What do the Sunni rulers get for to help to USA. No more dream of each and every Sunni wanting One Caliph over the all Ummah ruling on all Muslims as in past. These rulers are not interest in One Caliph, they are more interested in saving their own individual rules.
    3. What does the Shia get for to help USA. The unity of Ummah. Thus, the true history of Islam will be taught in all Muslim countries. The wives of Prophet (saws) will be respected along with first four Caliph of Islam. After the fourth Caliph, the Caliphate become dynasties and these dynasties of Caliphate will be thrown under the bus.
    4. Wahhabism is thrown under the bus too. KSA need push and some support from outside to accomplish this. Please Google, Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi or watch MSM/CNN/Fox News for the last two weeks.
    5. This will hopefully bring KSA and Iran in one fold, InshaAllah.

    The Islamic history taught to Sunni for the last 1500 years, cannot be changed to true Islamic history overnight, but you have to watch the Sunni Arabic Scholars how they are changing hearts and minds. ISIS is godsend and it showed the Muslims the ugly face of Islam. The theology of ISIS (762), ibn Taymiyyah (1263-1328), Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab (1703-1791) the leader of Wahhabism who got his theology from ibn Taymiyyah, Ahmad ibn Hanbal (*), Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya, Muhammad Hayyat ibn Ibrahim al-Sindhi.

    Ahmad ibn Hanbal (*) is one of the four Imam of Traditional Sunni Islam.

    If you read my posts carefully, I am very optimistic about two things:
    1. End of State of Israel.
    2. Ummah becoming as one.

    80 % of people are hard coded to be followers. Fact. Can’t function without somebody else leading.
    They SHALL find somebody…anybody…to follow. Always.

    So…

    states exist to parasitize societies

    Often.
    Sometimes, though, they do exist to protect people within.

    All political power, as it is called, rests practically upon this matter of money.

    That’s one way to look at it.
    Another is:
    All political power, as it is called, rests practically upon its ability to deliver violence.

    Visualize what happens, for example, if you refuse to pay taxes.
    The full path of that refusal doesn’t end with them taking all your money; it ends with you dead.
    And they don’t kill you by swamping you with ton of coin. They use weapons.

    Now, the question of some interest could be:
    Is the present Money Power about supporting the present Legions, or, the present Legions are about supporting the present Money Power?
    Something like that.

    To us, a year of a talented person’s time sounds expensive.

    What you call automation, must be the closest thing to AI as it stands. Automating content and formatting both, concerning “news” where external variables change from day to day, opinionating, on top as the editor in chief add content, being the software engineer in chief, the IT department’s chief, the chief executive, the CFO of half a million pageviews (your words), running an array of egos, and paying them for attributing content (to our best understanding) is automation as never seen. Ron Unz wakes up every day, and voila, the site needs no tweaking, no managerial tasks, no adjustments to faulty glitches (pages too long). Golf carries the day. If something happens to Ron, we the passive absorbers of the believes of our choice can have unz.com as usual at our morning coffee.

    Above is derisory, a distraction as to our suggestion. Repeated below.

    Does Ron Unz have any kind of exterior financing that might concern unz.com. Is there no exterior financing involved? Does Ron Unz want to keep hiding in plain sight and stone-wall the question? Some readers and commenters are concerned. For now, from the tree latter suggestions, the last one is taking hold. That makes unz.com a “sleeper cell” of propaganda, to build reader market share, to uproot “evil” commenters, to be asked to put the pages weight at the appropriate time in the appropriate direction.

    Hot off the press. The ADL’s Center on Extremism has just released their latest report on how the Alt-Right is driving the resurgence of white supremacy.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY of New Hate and Old: The Changing Face of American White Supremacy:

    [MORE]

    White supremacists in the United States have experienced a resurgence in the past three years, driven in large part by the rise of the alt right.

    The white supremacist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 11-12, 2017, attracted some 600 extremists from around the country and ended in deadly violence. These shocking events served as a wake-up call for many Americans about a resurgent white supremacist movement in the United States.

    Modern white supremacist ideology is centered on the assertion that the white race is in danger of extinction, drowned by a rising tide of non-white people who are controlled and manipulated by Jews. White supremacists believe that almost any action is justified if it will help “save” the white race.

    The white supremacist resurgence is driven in large part by the rise of the alt right, the newest segment of the white supremacist movement. Youth-oriented and overwhelmingly male, the alt right has provided new energy to the movement, but has also been a destabilizing force, much as racist skinheads were to the movement in the 1980s and early 1990s.

    The alt right has a white supremacist ideology heavily influenced by a number of sources, including paleoconservatism, neo-Nazism and fascism, identitarianism, renegade conservatives and right-wing conspiracy theorists. The alt right also possesses its own distinct subculture, derived especially from the misogynists of the so-called “manosphere” and from online discussion forums such as 4chan, 8chan and Reddit.

    Though aspects of the alt right date back to 2008, it was Donald Trump’s entry in 2015 into the 2016 presidential race that really energized the alt right and caused it to become highly active in support of Trump. This activism drew media attention that provided publicity for the alt right and allowed it to grow further. The alt right interpreted Trump’s success at the polls in November 2016 as a success for their own movement as well.

    After the election, the alt right moved from online activism into the real world, forming real-world groups and organizations and engaging in tactics such as targeting college campuses. The alt right also expanded its online propaganda efforts, especially through podcasting.

    As the alt right received increased media scrutiny—in large part due to its own actions, such as the violence at Charlottesville—the alt right experienced dissension and disunity in its own right, including the departure of many extremists who did not advocate explicit white supremacy (the so-called “alt lite”). The backlash against the alt right after Charlottesville hurt many of its leading spokespeople but has not resulted, as some have claimed, in a decline in the movement as a whole.

    Other white supremacists—neo-Nazis, traditional white supremacists, racist skinheads, white supremacist religious sects, and white supremacist prison gangs—have also continued their activities. Some white supremacists, such as neo-Nazis, seem to have been buoyed by the alt right to some extent, while others— most notably racist skinheads—may experience a loss of potential recruits at the hands of the alt right.

    Violence and crime represent the most serious problems emanating from the white supremacist movement. White supremacists have killed more people in recent years than any other type of domestic extremist (54% of all domestic extremist-related murders in the past 10 years). They are also a troubling source of domestic terror incidents (including 13 plots or attacks within the past five years).

    Murders and terror plots represent only the tip of the iceberg of white supremacist violence, as there are many more incidents involving less serious crimes, including attempted murders, assaults, weapons and explosives violations, and more. In addition, white supremacists engage in a lot of non-ideological crime, including crimes of violence against women and drug-related crimes.

    As I’ve repeatedly pointed out, rather than ceasing and desisting from engaging in their nefarious activities, The Lobby is doubling down. Rather than admitting they are responsible for creating this backlash by relentlessly pushing for a non-restrictionist immigration policy that would inevitably lead to the displacement of the European-majority, these Jewish supremacists have the Chutzpah to blame their victims of the policies they plumped for, by portraying them as as a bunch of losers, a fringe group of skin heads or KKKers. Wasn’t it Jeremy Corbin who recently remarked that zionists struggle to get English irony? Well, here’s another stellar example. They really do believe we are all just a bunch of Dumb Goyim.

    Jewish media acknowledges that a large part of their community is “all about Israel,” with no concern for what damage that does to the United States.

    Indeed…and it’s probably just the tip of the iceberg.
    If they are so bold as to call for Jews to use their billions to buy all US media and press for it to become a organ for Israel and to claim publically they ‘made’ America….what are up to they don’t say publically?

    Billions in our community’ — Israel supporters make frank appeals to Jewish wealth and influence
    Philip Weiss on September 25, 2018

    In the last year, Israel’s supporters in the U.S. have been making frank appeals to Jewish money and power as weapons to fight Israel’s delegitimization from the left.
    Josh Block of the Israel Project says there are “billions… at rest in our community” that can be used to invest in media properties and make them tribunes for Israel.
    TIP [the Israel Project] was founded in 2002 based on the recognition that “they who control the media, define the narrative – and they who control the narrative secure the outcomes they desire.”…

    ”People write a book called the Israel lobby and complain that AIPAC is one of the most powerful lobbies in Washington. My response to that is, that’s not good enough. We should be the most powerful lobby in Washington….We are entitled to use our power. We have contributed disproportionately to the success of this country. We have done so much for this country. When you think of how much better this country has become since our grandparents and great grandparents took the risk of coming here, we have not only the right we have the obligation to speak out, and use every piece, every bit of power available in support of Israel…. Look, we are the most affluent successful generation of Jews anywhere in the world, that’s the good news. … We are a very influential community. We deserve our influence.”

    They even claim Jews state is not bound by any laws anywhere on anything. Their hubris is beyond any limits. They must be taken down.

    Justifying landgrab, Israel says it is ‘allowed to ignore international law’ anywhere it wants
    Israel/Palestine
    
    ”The Israeli government has recently claimed that it can “legislate anywhere in the world”, that it is “entitled to violate the sovereignty of foreign countries”, and that “is allowed to ignore the directives of international law in any field it desires”. This was written in an official response letter to the Supreme Court last month.
    On the face of it, these are audacious claims. Is it really that bad? I would say that it’s even worse. The background to these statements is a new law from last year, which legalizes outright theft of Palestinian land.
    Several Palestinian human rights organizations have challenged the law in court. The plaintiffs are Adalah, the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center (JLAC), and Al Mezan Center for Human Rights (Gaza) on behalf of 17 local Palestinian authorities in the West Bank. The Israeli government was represented by a private lawyer, Harel Arnon, because Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit refused to defend the law in court, since he deemed it illegal by international law already when it was first passed.”…..continued.

    Excerpts from Philip Weiss’, Israeli reporter for ‘New York Times’ praises AIPAC at closed event: ‘You’ve got our backs’:

    Ronen Bergman, a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine, gave a talk to the Israel lobby group AIPAC in White Plains Monday night and lavished praise on AIPAC for its support of Israel.

    “You know, I’ve been all over the U.S. with AIPAC and it’s always a great pleasure, as an Israeli. I always tell AIPAC, you do so much in the U.S., and I know that Israel is not the spirit of where you work, but you need to do a little more to explain to Israelis how much they owe AIPAC. Israelis are not aware. I am aware… I know that you’ve got our backs. It’s such a great feeling.”

    I especially liked this little anecdote:

    The talk was titled, “Redactions Revealed.” Bergman referred to all the jokes about killing Palestinians and Arabs that Israeli agents make in his book. Saying that “Israelis have sometimes black humor,” he quoted a Mossad source who called Bergman on the day in February 2008 that Imad Mughniyah of Hezbollah was assassinated in Damascus by detonation of a bomb hidden in the spare tire cover of his Mitsubishi Pajero. When the source told Bergman the news, Bergman said, “You sound sad. Why are you speaking with a heavy voice?” The source said, “Ronen, I’m very sad…. It was a grand Pajero.” The hall resounded with laughter. The quote is not used in Bergman’s book, apparently because it was redacted by the Israeli government.

    Yours is an excellent article, as they always are, but judging by the “chaos commenters” it is much too early to mount the barricades because too many people do not understand such simple concepts as this,

    … the State itself, in its very nature, [is] coercive, exploitative, parasitic, and hence profoundly antisocial. The State is, and always has been, the great single enemy of the human race, its liberty, happiness, and progress.

    Instead, we must first prepare the ideological ground by helping folks rid themselves of the old canard and false dichotomy that it’s either the state or chaos.If we fail in that, we’ll just trade one monstrous master for another like we did ~250 years ago.

    How did McCollum become so outspoken, even using a term such as “apartheid” to describe Israeli law? Why is she willing to be courageous on the issue of Palestinian rights given the dynamics in Washington, DC?

    Early in her remarks she highlighted the impact of constituent engagement.

    “My constituents here in Minnesota’s Fourth District who send me to Congress, they expect me to fight for progressive values, human rights and policies that respect and elevate our shared human dignity,” she said.

    “I am representative, a reflection of the people who elect me. So my work to promote peace, attack poverty, defend the rights of children and stand in solidarity with the oppressed, including the Palestinian people, is because I have the support of my wonderful constituents.”

    While it may often seem pointless to call members of Congress, send emails, attend town hall meetings, and go on lobby visits in Washington, McCollum reminds advocates that these small actions can make a difference and are counted when officials make decisions.

    Building alliances with other communities on shared interests, such as the welfare of children, and mobilizing together can have even greater impact than individual efforts. As McCollum began her advocacy for Palestinian children, local groups joined together in the Twin Cities to support her – and helped to keep the phone calls and letters supporting her work coming over these past few years.

    And when will the Irish Senate (Seanad Éireann) take a stand for the Irish people whom they are supposed to be representing?

    The below excerpt was taken from debate about mass immigration into Ireland in May 2006 and can be found about two thirds the way down on the link to the Irish government website provided.

    ‘It may not be politically correct to say so but it is a major contrast to our [Irish] workers.’

    Seanad Éireann – May 11, 2006

    Ms White: ..Immigrants here work in restaurants, hotels, shops, IT customer support companies and on building sites. I find them an inspiration. Their work ethic, dedication and enthusiasm in customer service is outstanding. It may not be politically correct to say so but it is a major contrast to our workers. Last night on the way home I went into a beauty salon in Dundrum at around 8.45 p.m. An advertisement for a new service was displayed and I went in——

    Mr. Bradford: There is no need for the Senator to go there.

    Ms White: I thank Senator Bradford for the courtesy. I went into the salon and there were four Irish girls behind the counter who told me the salon was closed. I said I wanted to make an appointment but they said they had nothing available until next week. This was Wednesday night. We all know that foreign people working in shops, or the service industry generally, cannot wait to pack the bags properly and so on…

    Mrs White continues on in her testimony, again at Irish expense.

    They dote upon their slaves.

    ‘The standard of service has increased greatly because of the work ethic of our immigrants…I asked my daughter where they [the Chinese] got their work ethic and she said that under Mao all they were allowed to do was work.’

    Seanad Éireann – May 11, 2006

    Ms White: The Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism, Deputy O’Donoghue, made a good point recently about the Ryder Cup tournament, to be held in the autumn. He said that he hopes we give good service and value for money to the visitors who will come here for that event and not exploit them. The standard of service has increased greatly because of the work ethic of our immigrants.

    My image of Chinese people was that, under communist rule, they did what they were told; it was the ultimate in bureaucracy. I asked my daughter where they got their work ethic and she said that under Mao all they were allowed to do was work. These immigrants are the children of people who lived under Mao, who made them work. It was the other extreme with Mao, as we know, but it was an interesting point.

    And the ulterior motivations for what this push for mass immigration has historically in reality been about just about everywhere, ie a perverse form of ‘people power’ so as to divide and conquer, divide and rule, found on pg 4 of the academic paper linked below:

    ‘..the immigrants usually serve three main functions: cheap labor to replace native groups; settlement in the ‘frontier’ (periphery); and control over the natives and their land (Stasilius and Yuval-Davis, 1995). These dynamics generally result in the maintenance of hegemony..’

  360. @Miro23

    This is how real Democracy works – bottom up rather than top down – and Washington type Special Interests have problems dealing with it.

    The type always has had such misgivings and that’s why those who imposed the constitution on us took such pains to ensure that there would only be a democracy in name only. Many of them feared that “democracy” was essentially chaos and anarchy.

    Our masters no doubt still feel that way, and I find it amusing that those who decry anarchy deify democracy. Furthermore, some still confuse the desire for leadership as a need for a master or a set of them. It’s partly a problem of brainwashing from mass schooling and mass media, ignorance, lack of reasoning, and an inability to grow up,i.e., political neoteinia or Kant’s Unmündigkeit. Most Americans today strike me as spoiled but hardly enlightened and that’s one of the downsides of living in a state of de facto slavery amidst relative material well being.

    Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance from another. This immaturity is self-imposed when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without guidance from another. Sapere Aude! [dare to know] “Have courage to use your own understanding!”–that is the motto of enlightenment.

    Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why so great a proportion of men, long after nature has released them from alien guidance (natura-liter maiorennes), nonetheless gladly remain in lifelong immaturity, and why it is so easy for others to establish themselves as their guardians. It is so easy to be immature.

    - Immanuel Kant, An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment? (1784)

    Agreed. Lazy cowards are easy to dominate. Just offer to look after them and do their work for them and they’re yours.

    It’s a parent/child relationship with an implicit threat (in case of misbehavior). Often found in hierarchical societies, hierarchical corporations, established religions and always present in totalitarian regimes.

    Real Democracy offers adult/adult relationships.

    It needs active and informed people working together for good group outcomes. The general public need to be forced into it (money, time off work, legal obligation, special meeting rooms, preparation of documentation giving opposing views, permanent staff, voting procedures etc.) to justify their voting rights and to prevent the mechanism falling into the hands of activist minorities.

    Difficult but not impossible.

    Under this scenario, the residents of a place like Jefferson County, Mississippi (86% Black) would make their own decisions about their own policing, healthcare and schooling, run it themselves and pay for it themselves. Inevitably it would be basic but they could have some pride in it when it worked.

    Uh…, Donald J. Trump’s into abasement obedience for less than a year, and as Iran and Syria are advertised as high on the adminiZtration’s hit-list, your selection of Tony Blair as # 1 ranking is under challenge.

    Ah yes, I’m more or less well aware of your opinion of DJT. There are others here who share your sentiments, and like you, whose voices I humbly respect.

    But I confess I find myself more in the Z-man camp, of a ‘wait and see’ flight pattern.

    Tony Blair lied his country into war. He also opened the gates to the ultimate and permanent destruction of the British way of life for its citizens. His crimes are so off the charts, that I consider him far more in the Bush/Obama/Clinton camp than anything close to Trump, who was elected specifically as a repudiation of those monstrous regimes.

    Yes, he’s appointed fuckheads like Bolton to his cabinet, and sabre rattles at Iran, but for me, there is a world of difference between saber rattling and sanctions, than ‘Shock and Awe’.

    The day Trump commits the ultimate crime of starting another war of aggression upon an innocent nation like Iran, is the day I will regretfully agree with you that he’s just another Tony Blair.

    But that day has not yet come, and for me, two years into his administration – that means that he has not crossed that Rubicon, and there is yet still hope that he will not.

    Hope is tenuous, and ephemeral, but it’s the only thing I’ve got at the moment, and so I’ll cling to it, however Pollyanna that makes me for the moment.

    I intuit international Jewry honchos realize that millions of people have reached an undesirable state of mind and “get it.”

    Such situation suggests to me that less cool-headed (“Luke”) Top Financial/ /Foreign Policy Command ZUSA-Jews are getting dangerously desperate for action.

    So naturally, such impatient creatures want a Homeland Security “home-run” which would clear the Oded Yinon plan’s bases of Iran & Syria, very soon. As we know, Jacques, the Jews always get their wars!

    If Saudi is put into the dog house Israel and the US Jewish lobby will then become the advocate for Saudi in exchange for whatever Isr wants from Saudi.

    Minnesota legislator boycotts AIPAC
    By NATHAN GUTTMAN
    May 20, 2006 23:32

    ”Representative Betty McCollum, a Democrat from Minnesota, has announced that she is cutting off all ties with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) after what she described as a “hateful” and “vile” attack from an AIPAC activist who had called her office.
    McCollum was one of two members of the House International Relations Committee who voted against the anti-Hamas bill last month. The AIPAC activist, Amy Rotenberg of Minnesota, spoke to the congresswoman’s chief of staff after the vote and, according to McCollum, told him that “on behalf of herself, the Jewish community, AIPAC, and the voters of the Fourth District, Congresswoman McCollum’s support for terrorists will not be tolerated.”
    In response, McCollum wrote a letter to AIPAC’s executive director, Howard Kohr, in which she said that until she received a written apology, “AIPAC representatives are not welcome in my offices or for meetings with my staff.” McCollum’s letter was first published in The New York Review of Books. Rotenberg wrote back to McCollum, saying that the account of her conversation with the chief of staff was “seriously distorted” and that she “was not accusing anyone of anything.” In a separate letter, AIPAC director Howard Kohr proposed to meet with the congresswoman to discuss the issue. His letter, sent a month ago, was not answered. ”

    A Letter To AIPAC

    [MORE]

    April 10, 2006

    Mr. Howard Kohr
    Executive Director
    American Israel Public Affairs Committee
    440 First Street, NW; Suite 600
    Washington, D.C. 20001

    Dear Mr. Kohr:

    During my nineteen years serving in elected office, including the past five years as a Member of Congress, never has my name and reputation been maligned or smeared as it was last week by a representative of AIPAC. Last Friday, during a call with my chief of staff, an AIPAC representative from Minnesota who has frequently lobbied me on behalf of your organization stated, “on behalf of herself, the Jewish community, AIPAC, and the voters of the Fourth District, Congresswoman McCollum’s support for terrorists will not be tolerated.” Ironically, this individual, who does not even live in my congressional district, feels free to speak for my constituents.

    This response may have been the result of extreme emotion or irrational passion, but regardless, it is a hateful attack that is vile and offensive to me and the families I represent. I call on AIPAC to immediately condemn this un-American attack and disavow any attempt to use this type of threat and intimidation to stifle legitimate policy differences. I will not stand to be labeled or threatened in a manner that questions my patriotism or my oath of office.

    Last week, I did vote against H.R. 4681 during mark-up of the bill in the House International Relations Committee. As a Member of Congress sworn to uphold the Constitution, and ensure the security of the US and represent the values and beliefs of the constituents who I serve, it was my view that H.R. 4681 goes beyond the State Department’s current policies toward Hamas and the Palestinian Authority and potentially undermines the US position vis-à-vis the coordinated international pressure on Hamas. The language contained in S. 2237 accurately reflects my position.

    Keeping diplomatic pressure on Hamas to renounce terrorism, recognize the State of Israel, dismantle terrorist infrastructure, and honor past agreements and treaty obligations, while preventing a humanitarian crisis among the Palestinian people, are all policy goals already strongly supported by myself, the Bush administration, Congress and the American people. But, if the purpose of H.R. 4681 was to send another strong message to Hamas and the Palestinian people, as Congress already has sent with the passage of S. Con. Res. 79, then I disagree with the vehicle for that message. In my opinion, Congress should be articulating clear support for the Secretary of State’s present course of action; not creating a new law which likely diminishes the diplomatic tools needed to advance US policy goals with regard to the Palestinian people, potentially cuts US funding to the United Nations, and largely restates current law while creating on-going and burdensome unfunded reporting requirements.

    As you well know, in Congress we do not shy away from condemning the vile words of despots and dictators who use anti-Semitism as a weapon to incite hatred, fear and violence. AIPAC should not have a lower standard for persons affiliated and representing its organization when they label a Member of Congress who thinks for herself and always puts the interest of our nation and people first a supporter of terrorists.

    You and your colleagues at AIPAC have the right to disagree with my position on any piece of legislation, but for an AIPAC representative to say that I would ever vote to support Middle East terrorists over the interests of my country will never be tolerated by me or the families I serve. This incident rises to a level in which a formal, written apology is required.

    Mr. Kohr, I am a supporter of a strong US–Israeli relationship and my voting record speaks for itself. This will not change. But until I receive a formal, written apology from your organization I must inform you that AIPAC representatives are not welcome in my offices or for meetings with my staff.

    BINGO!!!
    You, my friend, have pointed out the difference between the vengeful god of the jews and the merciful, forgiving God of Christianity.
    The jewish god is a being of vengeance, war and destruction which demands that ALL non-believers be subjugated and even destroyed, at the whim and command of their god.
    Contrast that with the Christian God of mercy, who views his creation (all humans, not just jews or the “chosen”) as beings to be guided along, shown the path to spiritual enlightenment and ultimate personal salvation. There is NO WAY the jewish pharasaic belief system has anything to do with Christianity.

    It’s no wonder they hate so much, when their entire religious belief system starts on a premise and foundation of hatred and murder and genocide for all non-Jews.

    Rurik,

    All great religions have an expressed relationship with their god – and they have a set of views (a philosophy) of how they are too treat their fellow humans.

    It is accepted that a religion’s views “on god” should be respected. The same is NOT true about a group’s philosophy. A religion’s philosophy on how to live with others – is not sacrosanct.

    The Jewish philosophy for living with others, found in the Talmud – is unacceptable to the rest of humanity. It does not respect the norms of human behavior. We have an obligation to reject it, and to ostracize it – we cannot live peaceably with it around us.

    Three thousand years ago many different peoples had the same mean-god outlook as the Jews. Most of those people’s views have evolved to be kinder and gentler. A significant number of Jews have also evolved. But NOT those who practice the philosophy found in the Talmud.

    If you are a Jew who practices the Talmud – get out of our lives – period!

    To ostracize is moral.

    That has been their traditional “liberal” strategy from the outset. My sense is that they are about to pivot away from this strategy and move further to the right on the political spectrum. As I have previously pointed out, the central question of Is it Good for the Jews? must be broken down into its components parts:

    a) Is it Good for Villa Jewry?
    b) Is it Good for Diaspora Jewry?

    Things have evolved to the point where organized diaspora Jewry will no longer be the strong proponents of liberal ideology that they’ve traditionally been strong advocates of. Two reasons for this shift in strategy:

    1. Their liberal ideology has been so ardently embraced by The Dumb Goyim that they are adamant that these principles be applied universally to all countries, including, horror of horrors, their beloved Villa. This represents an existential risk to the Jewish state and its residents, which violates subcomponent a) of the central question, above.

    2. The key development that made this shift in strategy possible is the effects of the double whammy of mass immigration and the encouragement of widespread miscegenation.

    Their calculus was as follows: the increased risk to diaspora Jewry by abandoning liberal ideology (that had protected them from the outset) was justified by the reduced risk to Villa Jewry who were being subjected to the increasing risk due to the universal application of this same ideology.

    So, instead of promoting liberal policies, which had traditionally been the lynchpin of their security, organized diaspora Jewry has recently begun the shift to their new strategy of shifting further to the right.

    This shift in strategy has already been revealed by one of the key figures in the constellation of organized diaspora Jewry, CEO of TIP Josh Block. The title of his recent article says it all, “Progressive Ideals Have Been Hijacked by Anti-Semites”:

    Joshua S. Block, CEO and President of The Israel Project, warned of the rise of far-left anti-Semitism, which he described as “cloaked in the language of progressive idealism and far more nuanced than traditional alt-right anti-Semitism.”

    According to Block, “for most of us, there is a reflexive tendency to think about anti-Semitism as something that is propagated by the alt-right,” such as the march on Charlottesville last year. However, Block asked, “what happens when the hate comes from somewhere unexpected, somewhere much closer to home?”

    http://www.thetower.org/6725-tip-ceo-progressive-ideals-have-been-hijacked-by-anti-semites/

    My prediction is that we will soon be witnessing the end of all talk of progressivism. They tried to maintain the untenable position of Progressive Except for Palestine (PEP) for as long as they could. But they are now prepared to turn the page of progressivism for good… thanks to the effects of mass immigration and widespread miscegenation.

    Think hard.

    Identity politics (created by the Jews) is being taken over by the gentiles. Blacks and Latinos do not like Jews. Gays have their own intelligentsia. Jew money has lost control over these groups. These groups are truly liberal, and they do not like what is happening to the Palestinians. The divide is between gentile liberals and Jews is real.

    I wish that were true, but it ain’t.

    In fact, it’s already been done and has failed. If one reads the political writing of a century ago, the most significant source of our woes was well and commonly known, but to say much amounted to political suicide. For instance, McCarthy is libelled, slandered and smeared to this day, and Cynthia McKinney is hardly remembered even among die hard “libs”.

    In fact, even people who were once regarded as great heroes such as Lindbergh are now falsely known mostly as “anti-Semites” (G-wd, I hate that doofus term!…the worst anti-Semites in the world are the ones who use the term to snuff the truth).

    Anyway, we should not look to politicians for deliverance from the big evil, since they and the system they infest are custom made to be exploited by the slimiest of the smelliest creatures on Earth and they’ve had more than 2 millennia to perfect their skills. We, the Palestinians and many others are living the nightmare that these monsters always produce.

    They have always been prepared to flip-flop at the drop of a hat without blinking an eye. It still astonishes me how they pushed Communism until they didn’t then back to advocating it then abandoning it again.

    “And all those changes in the newspaper headlines with regards to Nazis — once the meetings of our friendly sentries in this shabby Poland, and waves of sympathy for those brave soldiers, who fight against the Anglo-French bankers, and Hitler’s uncut speeches over whole pages of Pravda; and then suddenly one morning the explosion of headlines, claiming the whole Europe is moaning heart-breakingly under their heel.”

    I don’t agree. “Organized Jewry”, i.e. ADL, AIPAC, and their ilk, are unaffected by what the jewish diaspora wants.

    The former will continue to act as the guardians of Israel and the controllers of the US government and other institutions – because they are the elite jews, and like all elites, they only care about themselves and their continued elite status. They will continue to veer right and promote wars.

    The latter, I believe, will continue to be pushing liberal causes like immigration, because they believe that the dilution of the American populace with as much diversity as possible will prevent them from being expelled for the 110th time. They may not be wrong about that.

    We can’t depend on either of those two groups to right what is wrong in our country. It really is up to us to find a working strategy to do that ourselves.

    A remake of Magnitsky affair, with the Arab-American nuances: http://www.turcopolier.typepad.com

    The US Congress has been trusting a tax evader and well-known crook Bill Browder and his fairy tales about the death of the “lawyer” Magnitsky, which allegedly happened in response to Magtnitsky’s “investigation” of the alleged misdeeds of the Russian State. The fairy tale has been exposed in a documentary by a harsh critic of Putin: https://nationalvanguard.org/2018/07/must-watch-russian-documentary-banned-in-the-west-the-magnitsky-act-behind-the-scenes/

    Meanwhile, a real murder of a critic of a Saudi despot Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is not going to be punished by the sanctimonious US government:

    “Jamal Khashoggi went missing on 2 October after entering the Saudi Embassy in Ankara. His fiancee was left waiting outside the embassy entrance. … Turkish authorities, including Turkish Intelligence, believe Khashoggi was interrogated, tortured, murdered and dismembered by a Saudi assassination squad sent by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS). They say there is video and audio evidence of this. Pretty damning if true. …

    A number of journalists and media CEOs have pulled out of a major investment conference in Riyadh later this month. However Steve Mnuchin, Dina Powell and Thomas Barrack still plan on attending this event.”

    Many excellent points there, but I think Trump is more of a Trojan horse or even a dupe than a Messiah

    .

    At the risk of repeating myself, I have no illusions of attaching messianic attributes to Trump. I have some doubts about him being a “Trojan Horse” since he is reviled by the deep state – unless those are wheels within wheels beyond my ability to perceive. He may well be a dupe, but that would be remarkable for a dupe to have the reached the pinnacle of power (although one could have said that about ‘W’).

    In fact, there is no political solution to what is essentially a huge set of moral problems that we in this country have been facing for a very long time, and for which we have never come close to solving.

    So, how do we solve these moral problems – we know (((who))) are creating them, and ejecting them would be the logical solution? There may not be a political solution – I think there is, but we do need to get (((them))) removed from positions of power. How do we do that, short of violent revolt with guillotines in tow? I am not even sure that the latter is possible in today’s America.

    We could all resign to our fate and surrender to the deep state. In the absence of any other solution, it behooves us to help Trump drain the swamp, unless the effort is proven to be futile.

    It is far from a perfect strategy, but I have not read any other solutions on this forum. Hopes and wishes are not a strategy.

    I could not agree more.

    I do not see any planned solution coming from the American people and certainly not from their “elected” officials. The American people seem too brainwashed and too dull to care enough to work for the truth, and too bone idle to do much about it if they understand that they’re being screwed by the system. In short, the masses are not mature enough to do anything but hold an opinion based on what some bozo’s been feeding them. Their rulers are in the game for themselves and will never change. It would be great if people turned their backs on them and quit putting their faith in them but I don’t see either happening.

    The best I can come up with is to suggest that each individual must do his best to solve his own moral problems before there can be anything done about the bigger picture, and we all know how that would work. Another thing we can do is to work to understand the truth and to confront and challenge liars at every turn. If nothing else, that can be a lot of fun, and I thank UR for the opportunity!

    “White knights,” real or imagined, are not a long-term strategy. I don’t think a real solution can be found without major political change.

    As long as we have “representative” democracy, the small number of representatives can always be easily suborned and pressured into doing the oligarchy’s bidding. “Representative” democracy is antiquated; it may have had some justification in the days of the stagecoach, but nowadays there is no valid reason why substantive legislation could not be initiated or put to a direct vote by the citizenry.

    “Do you, Joe Blow, agree to pay with your taxes for the killing of Palestinian and Syrian children? Yes/No”

    “Do you, Jane Doe, agree to send your kids to decrepit, drug-ridden schools with overworked, underpaid and -qualified teachers, so that our bloated military can have three more useless aircraft carriers? Yes/No”

    If we had ballots like that, we would get rid of the all-encompassing systemic rot in a hurry. (Of course that presupposes voting systems that have not been rigged. I’m sure Google and Facebook would love to provide those for free; I hear they care very much about ethics, values, stuff like that.) And that is the whole reason why all countries that have it cling to their “representative” so-called democracy – to deny their people any real political power, to keep the swamp firmly in control.

    I must say that I have always been skeptical of any system in which someone else has been nominated to represent my interests. I believe it is referred to in the literature as the Principal-Agent Problem.

    As I’ve commented before, matters as important as foreign policy that involve life and death decisions should never be contracted out to a third party. That’s why I’m a big proponent of direct democracy. Given the requirement for every citizen to be present at the Assembly to vote, however, this form of government had the unfortunate limitation of being practical for smaller-scale communities, or city-states. With the advent of computers and the Internet, however, people can congregate in a virtual Town Hall to deliberate on the merits of proposed legislation and to cast their votes.

    But if we’re “stuck” with representative democracy for the foreseeable future, and if “the entire system [has become] so corrupt that the populace as a whole [has] lost virtu,” the question becomes: who will be the tyrant to win our salvation, today?

    If the Pentagon bills out 60 million (to the taxpayer) for a half bar of ivory soap sent off to the theater of war, you can be sure each cent, over cost, goes right into the pocket of our “war profiteers”…not the incinerator behind the parking lot.

    In military rather good in analyzing situations, even developing excellent operational plans. Just don’t give them command of even a squad.
    Able to see the best approach to attack; incapable to visualize how EXACTLY the assault squads will cover those last 50 meters.

    In normal world, as managers, those types are called somewhat “seagull”. They come in department with shitload of good ideas, spread them around and then leave without making sure people understood them, let alone taking ownership and responsibility for implementations.
    As engineers, able to see how Five Eyes work on global scale. Incapable for setting a basic cabling under a building.

    People of ideas. Just don’t give them anything practical.

Now, as most informed people know, The Lobby had pushed for almost a hundred years to get Hart-Cellar passed in 1965. A half century later, Americans are left dealing with the consequences of this pernicious legislation. Although The Lobby has spent oodles of money trying to convince The Dumb Goyim that Diversity Really Is Our Strength, as the title – Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape – of this report reveals, The Lobby may be prepared to admit that there could be Trouble in Paradise.

    As the tweet indicates, the OSF report https://hiddentribes.us/pdf/hidden_tribes_report.pdf was conducted by a globalist initiative called More in Common. Here’s a backgrounder:

    a new international initiative to build societies and communities that are stronger, more united, and more resilient to the increasing threats of polarization and social division. We work in partnership with a wide range of civil society groups, as well as philanthropy, business, faith, education, media and government to connect people across the lines of division.

    Polarization and social division? What on earth are they talking about. I thought mass immigration was supposed to be a blessing onto the nation. Could it be that The Lobby was engaging in a bit of deception? Nah, perish the thought. Only a “white supremacist” would ever think such thoughts.

    Not only is the title of the report startling, I conducted a search on two terms – tribe and race – and 191 results for the former and 207 results for the latter were returned.

    This, to me, is a clear indication that the hypothesis I presented in one of my previous posts may have some validity to it – i.e., The Lobby is shifting away from promoting “liberal” values and, instead, in order to thwart progressive criticism (e.g., BDS) directed towards their beloved villa in the jungle, is in the business of promoting more “conservative” ones.

    While it is still early days, I encourage fellow Unzers to keep a watchful eye to see if they too can detect any discernible evidence that supports this hypothesis.

    For those that are interested in more details about this report, here’s an excerpt of the Executive Summary:

    [MORE]

    This report lays out the findings of a large-scale national survey of Americans about the current state of civic life in the United States. It provides substantial evidence of deep polarization and growing tribalism. It shows that this polarization is rooted in something deeper than political opinions and disagreements over policy. But it also provides some evidence for optimism, showing that 77 percent of Americans believe our differences are not so great that we cannot come together.
    At the root of America’s polarization are divergent sets of values and worldviews, or “core beliefs.” These core beliefs shape the ways that individuals interpret the world around them at the most fundamental level. Our study shows how political opinions stem from these deeply held core beliefs. This study examines five dimensions of individuals’ core beliefs:
    – Tribalism and group identification
    – Fear and perception of threat
    – Parenting style and authoritarian disposition
    – Moral foundations
    – Personal agency and responsibility
    The study finds that this hidden architecture of beliefs, worldview and group attachments can predict an individual’s views on social and political issues with greater accuracy than demographic factors like race, gender, or income.
    The research undertaken for this report identifies seven segments of Americans (or “tribes”) who are distinguished by differences in their underlying beliefs and attitudes. Membership in these tribes was determined by each individual’s answers
    to a subset of 58 core belief and behavioral questions that were asked together with the rest of the survey. None of the questions used to create the segmentation related to current political issues or demographic indicators such as race, gender, age or income, yet the responses that each segment gives to questions on current political issues are remarkably predictable and show a very clear pattern.

    The segments have distinctive sets of characteristics; here listed in order from left to right on the ideological spectrum:
    – Progressive Activists: younger, highly engaged, secular, cosmopolitan, angry.
    – Traditional Liberals: older, retired, open to compromise, rational, cautious.
    – Passive Liberals: unhappy, insecure, distrustful, disillusioned.
    – Politically Disengaged: young, low income, distrustful, detached, patriotic,
    conspiratorial.
    – Moderates: engaged, civic-minded, middle-of-the-road, pessimistic, Protestant.
    – Traditional Conservatives: religious, middle class, patriotic, moralistic.
    – Devoted Conservatives: white, retired, highly engaged, uncompromising,
    patriotic.

    The relevance of the segmentation is evident on a wide array of subjects, from issues of race and prejudice to gender and sexuality. Progressive Activists, the most liberal group, and Devoted Conservatives, the most conservative, show strong degrees of consistency within their ranks, while being almost perfectly at odds with each other. Middle tribes, by contrast, orient themselves incrementally on the ideological spectrum.
    Further evidence of the relevance of core beliefs and their associated tribal identities is that tribal membership predicts differences in Americans’ views on various political issues better than demographic, ideological, and partisan groupings. This can be seen on subjects such as approval of President Trump, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and approval of the modern feminist agenda. On these questions and many others, the differences between the most ideological segments are greater than the differences between, for instance, self-described “strong Republicans” and “strong Democrats.”

    There is Trouble in Liberal JEW Paradise. The political identity groups that the Jews created and controlled by funding them – are turning on them. Tribal blacks, Latins, and women’s groups are now leading themselves. A lot of them do not like Jews or Israel. For obvious political reasons, the Jew media cannot trash them publicly.

    The Jews can still depend on US elite gentiles of all stripes and the Zionist Christians. That is why they are turning right.

    As always you are very pertinent, we are not. The implementation, format and secondly content, the back-office of raw data collection, the lack of advertising, the use of http instead of https at times?, the reliance on out-sourced hardware, the lack of redundant set-ups, deserves better then wild guesses.

    To be short then, what bothers most is the lack of raw data feeds by insider sources, which makes the analysis whatever the rational and logical approach up in the air. Saker and a pertinent situation like Syria is a good example.

    Some ideas and suggestions seem to be blindsided by commenters and contributors. The long term, the global picture, not applying de facto an American-centric approach, the Jewish question never mentioning that the Jewish elites are as far apart of most Jewish Americans as White Americans are distanced from their own elites. The layered consensus of global elites. In the spirit of the approaching death of Stephen Hawking, the “biologically distinct” (our term) elites in the making. The confusion between toxicity as we post it, and the narrow, politically motivated “climate change” or not.

    As you suggested yourself (the pub cosiness), our reference to a sand-boxed environment, there are just too many variables to be bounced of the walls where they deaden up for grabs. Google was made up as it went, Wikileaks had a conceptual phase more then twenty years ago. Not giving priority, relative issues, the dynamics of caloric uptake and fertility. The self imposed deadline that there must be news daily.

    If one “controversial” issue should be prioritized it is, in the Western World the footprint of the individual, globally, the eight billion and growing world population, it’s dynamics. That variable has intercourse with anything, now and in the future with anything else as the dominant subverter. One of the pets of unz.com, immigration is mostly a derivative of the latter.

    Just from the top of the head, we alluded to this in other comments side-wide. —Form and content are entwined, page-views and deep logic are opposite often, the goal projection of unz.com is probably more of the first. That is the choice of almost anything on the web, maybe it takes balls to steer away from it, our guess is that the global masses and their future distinctness by environment and genetically, as compared to the power elites might make the priority of survival of humanity mostly the obligatory better individual and social engineering of the ones in charge. The masses are to put it in terms of “business” and “finance”, a liability. A half a billion world population of quality could procure, abet, supply and sustain all of the goodies that might now shrink in front of the derivatives and waste they now produce.

    To get back to technicalities, it is evident that the unz.com site is not harnessed for redundancy, independence, but relies on complicities. A weakness that kills when touching content where it matters in combination with exposure. Or not, …the Assange tweets were more effectual than the whole of Wikileaks.

    High thinkers, Seagulls, we see fit descriptions, it is an evolutionary process from “digging holes that spit coins”, over the course of the lifetime of some. Then indeed some bluff, Elon Musk is a prime example.

    No we cannot dissertate detailedly and practically in the space us attributed. Our suggestions must underwrite the substance of the back office.

    Apology. You aren’t that “seagull” type. I stand corrected.

    As always you are very pertinent, we are not. The implementation, format and secondly content, the back-office of raw data collection, the lack of advertising, the use of http instead of https at times?, the reliance on out-sourced hardware, the lack of redundant set-ups, deserves better then wild guesses.

    Can’t say I disagree there. Especially with http/https.

    Out-sourced hardware is an interesting question re privacy. Granted, no privacy then, but, as soon as one is “marked” by the real players, there is NO privacy on the Internet.
    Actually…..there is no privacy at all if one is really “marked” by “them”.

    As for redundant setups, well, I am, of course, not privy to actual setup, but what I can deduce, yes, you are correct. Still, at the end of the day, this IS an online pub. Should it go down for a week not a big deal, really.

    Maybe you are onto this too seriously. This “Internet Information Thing”. Maybe…just maybe….that isn’t as powerful and important as you feel it is. Probably for some other conversation.

    To be short then, what bothers most is the lack of raw data feeds by insider sources, which makes the analysis whatever the rational and logical approach up in the air. Saker and a pertinent situation like Syria is a good example.

    Again, this is an online pub. Not a place for serious analysis, let alone project/action. Bunch of guys talking. Nothing more…….nothing less.

    Some ideas and suggestions seem to be blindsided by commenters and contributors. The long term, the global picture, not applying de facto an American-centric approach, the Jewish question never mentioning that the Jewish elites are as far apart of most Jewish Americans as White Americans are distanced from their own elites.

Google was made up as it went, Wikileaks had a conceptual phase more then twenty years ago. Not giving priority, relative issues, the dynamics of caloric uptake and fertility.

    “variables to be bounced” sums it up. Again…nothing more, nothing less.

    If one “controversial” issue should be prioritized it is, in the Western World the footprint of the individual, globally, the eight billion and growing world population, it’s dynamics. That variable has intercourse with anything, now and in the future with anything else as the dominant subverter. One of the pets of unz.com, immigration is mostly a derivative of the latter.

    Makes sense. Still, don’t tell me you would expect a serious conversation about it here?
    You know, just keeping constantly in mind that this is a PUB would, I feel, keep things in perspective.

    Now, if you want to create a place in Internet for serious conversation, again….how would you do it?
    Let’s say, for the sake of conversation, I know something about related matters. I DID think about that some time ago and, well, came to conclusion it can NOT be done.

    Granted, I am not “high thinker”. More of a practical guy. But…hehe..I just have a feeling I can deconstruct any such effort with ease.

    That is the choice of almost anything on the web, maybe it takes balls to steer away from it, our guess is that the global masses and their future distinctness by environment and genetically, as compared to the power elites might make the priority of survival of humanity mostly the obligatory better individual and social engineering of the ones in charge.

    That’s it. “…takes balls….” sort of sums it up. Will it and how remains to be seen. I am not optimistic.

    The masses are to put it in terms of “business” and “finance”, a liability. A half a billion world population of quality could procure, abet, supply and sustain all of the goodies that might now shrink in front of the derivatives and waste they now produce.

    “Reduction”, a? Don’t think it will pan out that way. More likely something along, say “Brasil on steroids” type.
    Or….hehe…”Soylent green”.
    Or “The Day After” even.
    Who knows.

    To get back to technicalities, it is evident that the unz.com site is not harnessed for redundancy, independence, but relies on complicities. A weakness that kills when touching content where it matters in combination with exposure. Or not, …the Assange tweets were more effectual than the whole of Wikileaks.

    Again, depends on what you want and can, realistically, expect.

    I believe that a free speech (up to a point, of course) online pub is the max possible and, really, needed.
    Be realistic. Look around. Do you really think that you could do anything serious with people posting here?

    If I were to do anything serious (say, create an open letter to US Congress), I’d select not more than 5 guys posting here, 8 tops, organize a place for them, give them some time and collect the work. Makes sense?

    High thinkers, Seagulls, we see fit descriptions, it is an evolutionary process from “digging holes that spit coins”, over the course of the lifetime of some. Then indeed some bluff, Elon Musk is a prime example.
    No we cannot dissertate detailedly and practically in the space us attributed. Our suggestions must underwrite the substance of the back office.

    No prob.

    We, “practical people” see all that differently.

    Now……..ONE more thing.
    We aren’t talking Elon Musk here and related matters.
    We are talking …say…… Brzezinski, Wolfowitz and related matters.
    There is world of difference there. A WORLD.

    The game played at that level ain’t “Musk” type. The rules and outcomes are at next level. Risk/reward too. Prices paid as well.
    “Musk” world is a child play compared to “Wolfowitz”.

    Good analogy that “sandpit” you use. Kids playing in sand. We…here.
    Anyone on Internet.
    Playground where Wolfowitz types play is……..something else.

    Makes sense?

  472. @geokat62

    So, I briefly skimmed that document you provided. Fascinating overall. I find that I don’t really fit neatly into any one of the “tribes” they provided, though I cluster to the right. Of course, it was not lost on me that a Jewish source constructed “tribes” based on values and beliefs rather than ancestry and geography, further inflating the tired old proposition nation canard, and obscuring the true notion of what a tribe really is.

    Additionally, the thesis of the piece seams to be that there is a large cluster of people in the middle of the spectrum (more on the liberal side) who still buy into the American project and want “compromise.” I found myself disgusted at the amount of even “Devoted and Trad Cons” who still define American as being about values. Europe is a in a much stronger place in this regard. Anyway, “compromise”, being an implied good is interesting if you think about the dynamics of political reality. How does compromise work in the real world? Well, if you are conservative you have things like gun rights or immigration. Continually “compromising” on these issues just means that you will have less gun rights as the ball moves ever leftwards, and there will be less conservatives numerically due to immigration for the liberals to compromise with in the future.

    Of course, you could flip this around on any given liberal issue and say the same thing happens there, but in reverse. However, immigration eventually defeats this mechanism, as it perpetually increases the democratic weight on the left side of the scale, even when considering the higher birthrates of conservative Americans. Maybe the point of the document is that process of globalizing the world should be less aggressive in order to boil the white frogs?

    It is still clear that almost all political issues are downstream of immigration and demographics.

    The last, world stage level, was the fall of Communism, I guess. The very same people who brought the Wall down, had they tried that stunt just a year before, would’ve fared rather differently.

    The guy popular around had his timing wrong once; almost got killed. 10 years later he walked into power.

    Not voting is the only stylish, smart, honorable, courageous statement to make, and make it now.
