Ever since Tulsi Gabbard announced that she will be running for President in 2020 her personality and candidacy have been a subject of heated debates and after I posted a rather small message from her, I have been getting panicked emails warning me that she is a fake and that I not should “jump on her bandwagon” or otherwise endorse her.

So, first and foremost, I am not – repeat NOT – endorsing her in any way shape or fashion.

However, I do find her and what is taking place around her extremely interesting and I want to look at it a little closer. This won’t be a review or analysis of her ideas, political platform or chance of getting elected. Neither will I try to read her mind and do what so many other folks are doing and confidently declare that I know what her true values, ideas or plans are. I don’t.

But there are a few things which can already be observed about her which I want to comment on.

First, one might imagine that she would be the dream candidate for the Democratic Party: she is a female, she is not White, she has impeccable “patriotic” credentials, she is obviously both very good looking and very smart, she does not have any skeletons in her past (at least none that we know of for the time being) and she is not associated with the notorious Clinton gang. So what’s there not to like about her if you are a Democrat?

Well, as we all saw, the putatively “liberal” legacy Ziomedia hates Tulsi Gabbard with a passion. Maybe not as much as that legacy Ziomedia hates Trump or Putin, but still – the levels of hostility against her are truly amazing. This may seem bizarre until you realize that, just like Donald Trump, Tulsi Gabbard has said all the right things about Israel, but that this was not nearly “enough” to please the US Ziolobby. Check out the kind of discussions about Gabbard which can be found in the Israeli and pro-Israeli press:

This is just a small sample of what I found with a quick search. It could be summed up “Gabbard is not pro-Israel enough”. But is that really The Main Reason for such a hostility towards her?

I don’t think so.

I believe that Gabbard’s real “ultimate sin” is that she is against foreign wars of choice. That is really her Crime Of Crimes!

The AngloZionists wanted to tear Syria apart, break it up into small pieces, most of which would be run by Takfiri crazies and Tulsi Gabbard actually dared to go and speak to “animal Assad”, the (latest) “New Hitler”, who “gasses his own people”. And this is an even worse crime, if such a thing can even be imagined! She dared to disobey her AngloZionist masters.

So, apparently, opposing illegal wars and daring to disobey the Neocons are crimes of such magnitude and evil that they deserve the hysterical Gabbard-bashing campaign which we have witnessed in recent times. And even being non-Christian, non-White, non-male and “liberal” does not in any way compensate for the heinous nature of “crimes”.

What does this tell us about the real nature of the US society?

Appeasing never works with the Neocons
Appeasing never works with the Neocons

It is also interesting to note that the most vicious (and stupid) attacks against Gabbard did not come from “conservative” media outlets or journalists. Not at all! Most of the attacks, especially the more vicious ones, came from supposedly “liberal” sources, which tell us that in 2019 USA “liberals” do not refer to folks with liberal ideas, but to folks who are hell-bent on imperialism and war; folks who don’t care one bit about any real “liberal” values and who use a pseudo-liberal rhetoric to advocate for war outside the USA and for a plutocratic dictatorship inside the USA.

As for Gabbard herself, she already managed to publicly back-peddle to one obnoxious lobby (the homo lobby) on the issue of marriage (see here, here, here and here) and I fully expect her to cave in to the Zio-lobby just like Trump has been doing every day since he made it to the White House. Apparently, US public figures like Gabbard and Trump still don’t understand the simple fact that NO amount of grovelling will EVER appease the Neocons or the Ziolobby (see here for a perfect example of that attitude from Commentary).

This entire business about Rep. Ilhan Omar also illustrated something very crucial to Donald Trump’s personality. Let me explain:

A typical “lowered” “rooster” (and no, in Russia they are not Presidents!)
A typical “lowered” “rooster” (and no, in Russia they are not Presidents!)

In the bad old days of the Soviet Union, one of the tricks used by the prison/camp administration to break a prisoner (be he political or not) was to stick him into a cell with the so-called “roosters”. In the slang of the Russian criminal underworld, the “roosters” are the very lowest category of prisoners (in what is a rather complex hierarchy): “roosters” are either homosexuals, rapists, child molesters or men who have been down-ranked (“lowered” in slang) to that status as a punishment for some kind of action which the criminals consider reprehensible (like interacting with other “roosters”, mistakenly sitting down next to one, not repaying a card-debt, etc.). I won’t go into all the details here, but suffice to say that one thing which was well known in the Soviet jails/camps is that somebody who has committed some kind of trespass can be “lowered” to the status of “rooster” and that the prison/camp administration often uses these man as “combat roosters” – they send them to attack and even rape some prisoner who needs to be broken. And, needless to say, after you have been raped by such “roosters” you yourself get that status for the rest of your life.

Trump wants her to resign from Congress
Trump wants her to resign from Congress

What Trump did in the case of Rep. Ilhan Omar is act like a “lowered combat rooster”, sent to abuse somebody else on the behalf of the prison/camp administration. Of all people, Trump ought to know that accusations of anti-Semitism are absolutely, total hogwash. This is just a verbal whip used by AIPAC/ADL/etc to beat up their opponents. In fact, all Omar did was to say on Twitter that some members of Congress support Israel because they are collecting money from Jewish groups like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Duh?! Is that really news to anybody? Even Trump himself mentioned that during this campaign.

By the way, check out how Rep. Ilhan Omar grills that sorry SOB Abrams here: http://thesaker.is/rep-ilhan-omar-vs-elliott-abrams/ . This young lady clearly has more courage and integrity that all her colleagues taken together!

ORDER IT NOW

But the Neocons have now “lowered” Trump to the status of “rooster” and he now is acting like a willing “combat rooster” for those who “lowered” him to that status, which makes Trump the worst and most despised kind of “rooster”: one who willingly serves his own rapists. See for yourself:

The amazing thing is that Trump seems to be completely oblivious to how utterly dishonorable, spineless, subservient, weak and cowardly he looks every time he tries to so crudely brown-nose the Neocons. Apparently being a narcissist does not include the ability to be aware of how others might see you.

In fact, one of two things are most likely to happen next:

  1. Tulsi Gabbard remains true to her ideals and views and she gets no money for her campaign
  2. Tulsi Gabbard caves in to the Neocons and the Deep State and she become another Obama/Trump

Okay, in theory, a third option is possible (never say never!) but I see that as highly unlikely: Tulsi Gabbard follows in the footsteps of Trump and gets elected in spite of a massive media hate-campaign against her and once she makes it to the White House she does what Trump failed to do and appeals directly to the people of the USA to back her in a ruthless campaign to “drain the swamp” (meaning showing the door to the Neocons and their Deep State). This is what Putin did, at least partially, when he came to power, by the way. Frankly, for all her very real qualities she does not strike me as a “US Putin” nor does she have the kind of institutional and popular backing Putin had. So while I will never say never, I am not holding my breath on this one…

Finally, if Gabbard truly is “for real” then the Deep State will probably “Kennedy” her and blame Russia or Iran for it.

Still, while we try to understand what, if anything, Tulsi Gabbard could do for the world, she does do good posting messages like this one:

I don’t know about you, but I am rather impressed!

At the very least, she does what “Occupy Wall Street” did with its “1%” which was factually wrong. The actual percentage is much lower but politically very effective. In this case, Gabbard speaks of both parties being alike and she popularizes concepts like “warmongers in ivory towers thinking up new wars to wage and new places for people to die“. This is all very good and useful for the cause of peace and anti-imperialism because when crimethink concepts become mainstream, then the mainstream is collapsing!

The most important achievement of Tulsi Gabbard, at least so far, has been to prove that the so-called “liberals” don’t give a damn about race, don’t give a damn about gender, don’t give a damn about minorities, don’t give a damn about “thanking our veterans” or anything else. They don’t even care about Israel all that much. But what they do care about is power, Empire and war. That they really care about. Tulsi Gabbard is the living proof that the US Democrats and other pretend “liberals” are hell bent on power, empire and war. They also will stop at nothing to prevent the USA from (finally!) becoming a “normal” country and they couldn’t care less about the fate of the people of the USA. All they want is for us all to become their serfs.

All of this is hardly big news. But this hysterical reaction to Gabbard’s candidacy is a very powerful and useful proof of the fact that the USA is a foreign-occupied country with no real sovereignty or democracy. As for the US media, it would make folks like Suslov or Goebbels green with envy. Be it the ongoing US aggression against Venezuela or the reaction to the Tulsi Gabbard phenomenon, the diagnostics concur and we can use the typical medical euphemism and say with confidence: “the prognosis is poor”.

    You really do need to take down that JFK portrait in your home….and burn it in the back yard. JFK was a true-believer Cold Warrior. And this obvious fact about JFK complete refutes the JFK C0nspiracy Theory…

    Which Liberals are you referring to? If you are referring to Corporate Oligarchs…you are probably right. They only care about acquiring DEMI-GOD LIFE AND DEATH POWER 0ver several billion human beings…..and they are SATANICALLY sexually perverted.

    The Democratic Party is effectively majority nonwhite at this point in time, and the non-whites are the Voting Bloc for war against Christian Russia…they are not holy innocents. Trump’s Native Born White American Working Class Voting Bloc admire Vladimir Putin and do not want war with Christian Russian….and they are already being accused of Treason by the Democratic Party Voting Bloc and it’s nonwhite majority Democratic Party Voting Bloc.

    America is politically split into a White Nation and a Non-White Nation…..And this is the context in which the war against Christian Russia must be understood……

  2. Prediction:

    Tulsi will support the war against Christian Russia….and here is why:The Demographic-Race War against The Historic Native Born White Christian American Working Class Majority is a much higher priority for Tulsi than opposing war against Christian Russia…Tulsi is ambitious and had big dreams……Watch Tulsi start making little bleats about how Crimea belongs to Ukraine…and Putin attacked our Democracy!!!…by the time of the Democratic Party POTUS debates:the little bleats will have become loud HOWLS…..it’s comming…it’s just a small skip and a hop from the Hare Krishna Cult….to the “PUTIN ATTACKED OUR DEMOCRACY!!!” Cult…..think of it terms of this physics model:synchronized oscillators….

    In fact, one of two things are most likely to happen next:

    – Tulsi Gabbard remains true to her ideals and views and she gets no money for her campaign
    – Tulsi Gabbard caves in to the Neocons and the Deep State and she become another Obama/Trump

    I think it is unlikely that Tulsi Gabbard caves in so soon. The way she has started her campaign, she is certainly aware that she has cut off herself from the normal donors of Democrats, and the way she talks shows that she is not afraid of alienating them even more because she won’t get money from them, anyway. The plan is to do the same like Bernie Sanders 2016 and raise small donations. Many Democratic candidates now say they don’t take PAC money, but there are different ways of getting money from big donors – Tulsi Gabbard is probably one of those who are more serious about avoiding reliance on big donors. It could work. In 2016, during the primaries, Hillary Clinton regularly had to interrupt her campaign in order to attend dinners with superrich donors, while Bernie Sanders asked people to donate as a part of his campaign on social media, and Sanders regularly outraised Clinton. Of course, 2016, we just saw that for the primaries, but it might also work for the general election (and numbers are not everything, Hillary Clinton spent far more than Donald Trump and still lost, so even if small donations would lead to a somewhat lower sum, she could still win with a popular message). And not only could it work, I think it would be the only way for Tulsi Gabbard to succeed because she has probably already been too outspoken about some things to ever gain back the trust of the neocons and their allies in the media and the billionaire donor class.

    Of course, if Tulsi Gabbard advances in the primaries, she will be attacked most viciously in the media. I am not so sure what the effect will be. On one hand, Trump‘s victory in the primaries and the general election showed that being hated by mainstream media does not have to be an obstacle that cannot be surmounted, and as long as there are so many primary candidates, such vicious attacks can also make her seem more interesting to some people. On the other hand, her main hurdle are probably the Democratic primaries, and, according to polls, Democrats have lost trust in the mainstream media to a lesser degree than the general public. But then again, vilifying her too much in the liberal media (as it has already started) is also a certain risk for them because it could become too obvious to see that the decisive feature that leads to such attacks is that someone is not seen as reliably pro-neocon, and that could also lead to doubts about the media in leftists who readily accepted the attacks on Trump because they hated him for other reasons. Therefore, I think the main hope of the establishment is that Tulsi Gabbard can be treated as a „minor candidate“ and won’t get far, in case she becomes a serious contender for the nomination, they are in trouble.

    If Tulsi Gabbard wins the nomination, we can almost be certain that the pro-neocon establishment will a) see a re-election of Trump as the lesser evil and b) they will support a pro-establishment third party candidate (already last time, Michael Bloomberg threatened to run if the two major candidates are Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, now Howard Schultz seems to have positioned himself that way, though I think he is too ridiculous and ineffective and will be replaced by someone else if the establishment needs a third party candidate because they lose the Democratic primaries). Such a third party candidate probably increases the chances of Trump‘s re-election (probably a desired side-effect, many of these liberal oligarchs probably prefer Trump to Gabbard and Sanders by far, but it would be difficult for them to support Trump in public, supporting a third party candidate is much easier), but a populist campaign against both Trump and that third party candidate as representatives of a corrupt billionaire class might well be successful.

    Then, if Tulsi Gabbard is elected, she certainly runs the risk of ending like JFK, but the fact that so many people now already talk and write about this risk might also protect her to some degree – the danger is so obvious that many people won’t believe theories about a lonewolf terrorist easily (and blaming Russia and Iran after Tulsi Gabbard had been vilified as an Assadist and Russian trolls‘ favorite candidate would also be difficult, if for some reasons relations with Saudi Arabia are not seen as so important any more, the more realistic option of blaming Saudi terrorists may be chosen). Another option would be to impeach her, though that could also be a big risk for the establishment, and depending on who would be her VP, it would not be enough. Of course, there could be bipartisan agreement about blocking all of her initiatives.

    Even if she is extremely smart and tough, alone against the united forces of the deep state, establishment media and the bipartisan war party, Tusli Gabbard probably could not achieve very much – of course, she would still be commander in chief and probably could prevent new wars, and she could open some people‘s eyes about who really holds power, but she could hardly achieve very much. The question is whether she still might get some institutional support like Putin when he became president. I think that is not so unlikely because there are indications that the deep state is internally divided (one small example is that the communications of Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were published) and that the neocons‘ grip on power is far from total. Therefore, it does not seem impossible that with a combination of support in the general public (and she certainly has the potential of becoming very popular) and the support of parts of the deep state that have not been subdued by the neocons, she might be successful – it would be a very harsh power struggle.

    As far as caving in to Israel is concerned, Tulsi Gabbard has never been too critical of Israel – there was some relatively mild criticism of attacks on Gaza (in a way that is fairly common among progressives), but in general, she has not been too critical of Israel and has also had some friendly contacts with the pro-Israel lobby. So, while she is very strong and consistent in rejecting neocons and their regime change wars, as far as Israel and Palestinians‘ rights are concerned, people should probably not expect too much from her. But if she is serious about fighting the neocons and limiting the power of the military-industrial complex and still could win an election, that would already be a big achievement.

    @Of all people, Trump ought to know that accusations of anti-Semitism are absolutely, total hogwash.

    But he takes them very, very seriously.

    “Trump: Pittsburgh shooting an ‘assault on humanity’, by Tal Axelrod – 10/27/18”
    @ttps://thehill.com/homenews/administration/413492-trump-pittsburg-shooting-an-attack-on-humanity

    “President Trump continued to condemn the Saturday shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed at least 11 people.
    “The hearts of all Americans are filled with grief following the monstrous killing of Jewish Americans at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pa., you’ve all seen it, you’ve been watching it, it’s horrible,” he said at a rally in Murphysboro, Ill.
    “This evil anti-Semitic attack is an attack on all of us, it is an assault on humanity. It will require all of us working together to extract the hateful poison of anti-Semitism from our world. This was an anti-Semitic attack at its worst,” Trump added. “The scourge of anti-Semitism cannot be ignored, cannot be tolerated, and it cannot be allowed to continue … It must be confronted and condemned everywhere it rears its very ugly head.”
    Through the centuries, the Jews have endured terrible persecution … And those seeking their destruction, we will seek their destruction. And when you have crimes like this, whether it’s this one or another one on another group, we have to bring back the death penalty,” he said.[the audience exploded in wild ovations].

    Trump is a recipient of the ‘The Tree of Life Award’ “the highest humanitarian award the Jewish National Fund* presents to one individual or family each year in appreciation of their outstanding community involvement, their dedication to the cause of American-Israeli friendship, and their devotion to peace and the security of human life”.

    *The Jewish National Fund (Hebrew: קֶרֶן קַיֶּימֶת לְיִשְׂרָאֵל‬, Keren Kayemet LeYisrael, previously הפונד הלאומי‬, Ha Fund HaLeumi) was founded in 1901 to buy and develop land in Ottoman Palestine (later the British Mandate for Palestine, and subsequently Israel and the Palestinian territories) for Jewish settlement.

  6. Biff says:

    After witnessing the temper tirades and the teeth gnashing of the deep states media minions after the anti-war-lite Donald Trump got elected, I’m guessing Tulsi Gabbard is in for one of two things:

    1) The 2012 Ron Paul treatment – total media blackout
    Or
    2) A media Blitzkrieg that will depend on outright lies to discredit her – in which case she might as well bring a hat and a broom to most debates.

    I don’t think American Democracy(AKA Empire) is in any mood for another spoiler.

    Saker is a serious analyst?

    Finding all this information below takes less time than burning a cigarette.

    United Christians for Israel, founded and led by pastor John Hagee, have millions of members and call themselves “the largest pro-Israel charity in the United States.” The organization was an important factor in the decision of US President Donald Trump in 2017 to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to transfer the US embassy there.

    Gabbard sponsored the resolution of the Congress criticizing Amnesty International for revealing Israeli atrocities against civilians in his blitzkrieg in Gaza in 2014. The resolution stated that Israel “focuses on terrorist targets” and “goes to extraordinary efforts to attack only terrorist actors”.
    https://www.counterpunch.org/2014/10/22/gaza-and-the-bi-partisan-war-on-human-rights/

    What it looked like “focusing on terrorist targets” according to Gabbard can be seen here
    https://www.google.pl/search?q=gaza+2014&source=lnms&tbm=isch

    Zionism and Islamophobia Gabbard have gained recognition and support from all kinds of unpalatable characters – like right-wing billionaire and Zionist Sheldon Adelson, who loudly declared that “all Muslims are terrorists”.

    In addition to Israel’s loyal defender, Gabbard has also proved to be a credible servant of Adelson’s business interests. Introduced regulations against online gambling to protect the casino’s empire from competition on the Internet. Adelson thanked her, giving her the Champion of Freedom award.
    http://time.com/3695948/sheldon-adelson-online-gambling/

    Her prejudices against Islam directly stem from her Hindu fundamentalism. Gabbard became one of the main American political supporters of Narendra Modi, the leader of the Hindu sectarian party Bharatiya Janata (BJP) and the current Prime Minister of India.

    Being the main minister of the Indian state of Gujarat in 2002, Modi helped spark a pogrom against Muslims, in which they killed 2,000 people and displaced over 200,000 people in the ethnic cleansing campaign. Since his victory in the 2014 elections, Modi has been a decidedly pro-Israeli Indian politician and has strong relations with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    At the invitation of Modi, Gabbard traveled through India for three weeks during which various Hindu fundamentalists greeted her as their American master. In probably the worst part of the tour, the India Foundation, a formation tuned to the Hindu fascist group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), hosted Gabbard to discuss the future of Indian-American relations. After the reactionary lovefest, the Indian newspaper Telegraph called it “the American Sangha mascot”
    https://www.telegraphindia.com/india/sangh-finds-a-mascot-in-american-tulsi/cid/1579985

    After returning to the USA, Gabbard defended Modi against any criticism. She was one of the few democrats who spoke against the federal government’s decision to refuse a Modi visa in 2014 because of his abolition of religious freedom

    A year earlier, she carried out a successful campaign to abolish legislation calling on India to improve the treatment of religious minorities. Gabbard condemned the bill as an attempt to “influence the outcome of the national elections in India.”
    https://www.alternet.org/2015/02/curious-islamophobic-politics-dem-congressmember-tulsi-gabbard/

    Gabbard’s service for the most right-wing forces in Indian politics leaves no doubt about its Islamophobia.

    Gabbard supported Donald Trump’s claim that Islam itself is the source of terrorist organizations such as Al-Qaeda and ISIS. She claimed that Obama “completely misunderstands the rational Islamic ideology that drives these people.”
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/knives-are-out-hawaii-dem-faces-backlash-for-taking-on-obama-over-islamist-extremism

    As with other leading liberal democrats, Gabbard’s alleged progressive values ​​do not extend to the Palestinian struggle for freedom. While she may support the resistance of Indian Native at Standing Rock, she will not support the indigenous people of Palestine and her struggle for self-determination against Israeli colonialism.

    Look at the Virgina DNC situation. The bar has been raise so high, odds are she has already transgressed at least one lefty taboo — Or will do so during the campaign — Or, will be accused of transgresing and be stoned under the “WE BELIEVE” standard even if the accusation later turns out to be unfounded.

    The unbridled hate Dems generated in the Stormtroopers of Antifa is now beyond their control. The question is, “Can any Democrat run the gauntlet?” Most likely scenario is an extreme Red/Green/Yellow candidate siphoning off votes in a way that will help Trump.

    …Be it the ongoing US aggression against Venezuela..

    Aggression? Clearly not…

    Number of U.S. troops landed = zero
    Number of U.S. shots fired = zero
    Number of U.S. bombs dropped = zero

    Venezuelan leaders like Chavez ran PDVSA into the ground. The situation in the Venezuela is the inevitable result of National Socialist/Communist rule. The U.S., at most, slightly impacted the timing of the self destruction.

  18. Yawn. Tulsi, Bernie, Corbyn – doesn’t matter. The ruling elites have the power to co-opt, demonize or kill them. And, that regime is desperate enough to do this.

    We are all waiting for the tectonic impact of some external shocks. Because the system is fragile, over-ripe. Collapse of debt bubbles, an infectious disease epidemic, a rogue general fires off some nukes. Whatever. Just passes the Global Tipping Point, then, everything disintegrates. The centre cannot hold. And at that point the tensions release and people go nuts. The regime divides against itself; the roof falls in. The whole world is waiting, expecting this to happen in some way or form.

    Go and max out your credit card, get hard stuff, don’t pay, stop buying anything. A few millions doing that. Empty your bank account. Stop paying your mortgage and car loan. Make them chase you. Work to precipitate the Big One. Help tear the fabric beyond its tensile strength. Do your bit.

    Don’t expect to see Tulsi on your side of the barricades.

    Nimrata Randhawa Haley is of Punjabi Sikh ancestry on both sides, genetically closer to southern Europeans than to most Indians.

    Kamala Harris is descended from South Indian brahmins on her mother’s side. You can’t get more Aryan than that – look up the word. And she is Jamaican on her father’s side. I haven’t seen a picture of him but I imagine he’s about as black as fellow Jamaican Colin Powell. An octoroon to use that old-fashioned term. But Negro blood was considered so polluting that just a smidgeon put you with the lower race. It’s still working like that, but in victim politics less is more.

    Tulsi Gabbard had a WASP mother who became a member of Swami Bhaktivedanta’s Krishna devotees. Her father was Polynesian. There’s no genes from India. It’s a mistake to think of her religion as Hindu, but it’s her mistake as well as that of many Indians. Hinduism is not *a* religion because Hinduism is the liberating realization that the idea of *a* religion is very shallow. It is a pleasure to see Tulsi, in videos, going about her devotions.

    I found your post to be a better analysis than the article and is close to how I view her and her candidacy. What’s interesting is the extent to which she has made anti interventionism a central part of her political platform from the very beginning. As part of the constituent who will vote for the anti-war candidate regardless of their party affiliation or other positions, I wonder if we’re not a more sizable part of the electorate than I thought.

    Apparently, US public figures like Gabbard and Trump still don’t understand the simple fact that NO amount of grovelling will EVER appease the Neocons or the Ziolobby…

    If it were the case that Tulsi were an Indian fifth-column traitor, like Rubio is a Israeli fifth-column traitor, So what? Objective indicators of world-standard state responsibilities show that the state of India is more developed, more legitimate, and more entitled to responsible sovereignty than the US government. India exceeds US performance on most of the top-level human rights indicators.

    You can see for yourself, in whatever level of detail you desire, with NGO input exhaustively compiled by elected independent international experts acting in their personal capacity.

    Tulsi’s exposure to superior Indian human-rights compliance is likely to build her capacity in terms of Responsibility to Protect Pillar 2. She will have a better understanding of rights and rule of law than provincial goober candidates with no international exposure. That will necessarily influence her evolving stance on systematic and widespread Israeli extermination of Palestinian indigenous peoples.

    We are at the extreme end of Kali Yuga, the Dark Age because in it people are as far away as possible from God, under the dominance of the demon Kali, the source of all evil. The name is derived from a root kad, “suffer, hurt, startle, confuse”. It is the era of the greatest confusion and deception.
    How is Kali Yuga described in the Mahabharata:

    “Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly
    Rulers will no longer see it as their duty to promote spirituality, or to protect their subjects: they will become a danger to the world.
    People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source.
    “At the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no topics on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and respectable gentlemen of the three higher varnas (guna or temperament) and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam (2.7)
    Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other. Ignorance of dharma will occur.
    People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
    Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
    Sin will increase exponentially, while virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
    People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
    Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings.
    Women will no longer get married.
    Traditional castes will disappear and everyone will belong to a single social class.
    Brahmins will not be learned or honored, Kshatriyas will not be brave, Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings, and the varna system will be abolished”.

    Now, you would also expect that devotees of pseudo-Hindu cults (secret Kali cults) would proliferate and raise to the top of the cesspool.

    Hope is such a frail and tenuous emotion.
    That said, l’m investing some of my dwindling reserves of hope in Tulsi. Your comments are very considered, and l share your concerns for peace with the current play of Theo-politics. Modi is an unapologetic Hindu chauvinist who has successfully incited brutal communalism for electoral gain. But my personal loathing of him has ameliorated over time (I shock myself!) because he has steered a pretty independent course for India, maintaining friendly relations with China for example,despite U.S. pressure to use India as a wedge. His Hinduva ideology appears to be a domestic political tool. This is a cunning but pragmatic approach and is distinct from a religious ideology with global ambitions. The latter is the province of Zionism which is not really a religion but has (other) religious affiliations or “allies”,including Hinduism but most importantly Christian zionism (or evangelicism or dispensationalism et al). It seems to me that a lot of what Trump is doing re. “Jerusalem as the capital of Israel” is to appease the Christian Zionists who comprise a large chunk of his support base, and not American Jewry.(They are democrats as a foregone conclusion).There is great irony in this if you follow the fantastical narrative of the Christian evangelical apocalypse.
    Political ambitions are the scourge of religion.I attend an Anglican Church,very traditional, because my preferred form of worship is hymn singing-the sung mass for Eucharist.I do this in contradistinction(!) to evangelicism. Unfortunately Islam too undergone a political makeover in recent history which has led to un utter corruption of prophet Mohammad’s words.It’s apogee is Wahhabism, a fad made manifest through money and power and war. Shia is also Islam, but not according to Wahhabis,who do not even relate to Shia as “self-hating Moslems.”And do not imagine that the Moslem brotherhood is any better for all the acceptable styling. Sunnism needs to detach itself from ideology.God is in the poetry and not the small print.
    Thanks for your patience with my digression. The Saker suggests we examine the Tulsi phenomenon as a diagnostic tool.

    To be allies it is only necessary that counties share enemies. When push comes to shove the US has a unspoken veto power over Israel, because Israel cannot expel the West Bank Palestinians although they would like to. Official US policy is for a two state solution. Israel has no intention of handing over the occupied territories for a meaningful Palestinian state, but cannot say that because they fear the reaction of the US. On the other hand, America cannot exclude domestic support for Israel from their calculations and act unilaterally in Middle Eastern policy, as Bush the Elder and Carter found out when they listened to foreign policy advisers such as Brzezinski.

  32. She cannot be anti war without being anti Israel. Her candidacy is going nowhere.

    It would be nice to have an anti war voice in the debates but Gabbard will be adrift in a sea of idiots. How many candidates will there be for the Democratic nomination? Twenty? Eighty? All of them competing for who hates whitey the most. Featuring as a side show Biden and Bernie expressing their shame at their skin color.

    So your argument would appear to be that since we can keep Israel from committing the greatest atrocity since Joseph Stalin’s little games that we control her. We can’t keep her from invading each of her neighbors in turn, we can’t keep her from sponsoring al Qaeda in Syria, we can’t keep her from masquerading as ourselves and commissioning terrorist bombings in Iran, and we can’t expect her to tell us that the Twin Towers are about to be destroyed — but we control her.

    Okay, let’s say you’re right; the relationship is reciprocal. So we, a global hegemon with over three hundred million inhabitants, manage to maintain equality with a tiny desert client state with a population of ten million that wouldn’t last a year if we pulled the plug.

    Osama bin Laden cited his outrage over Palestine as one of the factors that drove his ideological radicalization. And of course we never would have invading Iraq absent the ‘neo-cons.’ In fact, aside from the 1953 coup in Iran, it’s hard to think of any step along our descent into a virtual cold war with a fifth of the world’s population where we haven’t been given a helpful shove by our little buddy.

    Does Ms Gabbard propose to shrink the state back to its original constitutional size and limits, or beyond?

    Is she proposing ANY reduction in the overall size and scope of the Federal government at all?

    My guess is no, which means that Ms Gabbard , if elected would be just another fraud, just like Trump:

    “Because they are all ultimately funded via both direct and indirect theft [taxes], and counterfeiting [central bank monopolies], all governments are essentially, at their very cores, 100% corrupt criminal scams which cannot be “reformed”,”improved”, nor “limited” in scope, simply because of their innate criminal nature.”

    Wanting/expecting a 100% criminal org. to improve one’s life and country is obviously [ or should be] a complete waste of time .

    Until enough people come to recognize:

    1] the true, underlying criminal nature of government, and ….

    2] that its “solutions” always make matters worse, not better,

    ….and in light of those two facts decide en masse to vote for a candidate who is 100% dedicated to dramatically shrinking the government overnight to [ at the very least] its original constitutional size and limits, the government will continue to grow, start new wars [both at home on citizens, and overseas], enlarge the welfare state etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum, because, given its core, unchangeable, criminal nature THAT IS WHAT IT DOES.

  48. Attention all ye faithful and hopeful, especially the voters. Please pay attention to who really runs the government and how much effect the voting public has on them.

    In the Executive, the Governor is entirely independent of the choice of the people, and of their control; his Council equally so, and at best but a fifth wheel to a wagon. In the Judiciary, the judges of the highest courts are dependent on none but themselves.

    But we have made [those justices] independent of the nation itself. They are irremovable, but by their own body, for any depravities of conduct, and even by their own body for the imbecilities of dotage. The justices of the inferior courts are self-chosen, are for life, and perpetuate their own body in succession forever, so that a faction once possessing themselves of the bench of a county, can never be broken up, but hold their county in chains, forever indissoluble. Yet these justices are the real executive as well as judiciary, in all our minor and most ordinary concerns. They tax us at will; fill the office of sheriff, the most important of all the executive officers of the county; name nearly all our military leaders, which leaders, once named, are removable but by themselves. The juries, our judges of all fact, and of law when they choose it, are not selected by the people, nor amenable to them. They are chosen by an officer named by the court and executive. Chosen, did I say? Picked up by the sheriff from the loungings of the court yard, after everything respectable has retired from it. Where then is our republicanism to be found? Not in our constitution certainly…

    Tulsi’s speech patterns closely resemble Hillary Clinton’s. I put this down to various leadership classes they attended which likely have a common source. I think we are seeing a divergence of opinion in the Deep State with some wanting Globalism, while others are unwilling to accept the destruction of the United States as a price for Globalism. Call them the Fortress America wing of the Deep State. They want to rebuild America and preserve its wealth and autonomy while moving toward a world government.

    In other words, Tulsi could emerge as the candidate of the MAGA section of the Deep State.

    As for Trump, he is waist deep in the Swamp fighting for his life against pretty much everybody. If Omar had her way he would be impeached. Trump’s support among Republicans is the only thing keeping from being impeached. His partisan attacks are probably designed to signal his willingness to lead the fight for Republicans, hoping they will defend him in return.

    Back in 2015, Justin Raimondo expressed concern that Donald Trump could be a handpicked Clinton opponent, in light of his easily researched, inconsistent public statements over the years. (The hypothesis was consistent with a subsequently (?) leaked DNC memo that had Mr. Trump on such a short list, and the very odd NYT reportage of a phone conversation in which Bill Clinton urged him to run, shortly before he did.) While asking people not to vote for anyone, I pushed the Raimondo article out here at Unz, and was attacked by other commenters as a shill for Jeb Bush, then Hillary.

    The Zionist owned FED and wars of profit go hand in hand and so a peace candidate will never ever become POTUS as long as the SATANIC Zionist banking kabal is in control of the U.S. and it appears the Zionists will be in control until they have bled America dry in their wars for profit and the Zionist NWO!

    An example of the SATANIC Zionist mindset is the fact that they did 911 and murdered some 3000 Americans to get America into the Mideast wars and got away with it and every thinking American knows that Israel and Zionist controlled deep state did 911.

  71. The first time I saw Gabbard — when she recently announced her candidacy — I immediately thought she would make the best nominee for the Dirty Dems. She sounded smart, looked good, is female, brown, seemed tall, elegant, etc. She hit all the right leftist notes. Then she suggested that less USA aggression around the world is a good idea, which makes perfect sense.

    That the DDs instantly attacked her causes me to predict that they will self-destruct over the next two years and Trump will be reelected. (Thank goodness.) I also suspect that Hitlery is hoping for a deadlocked convention and a “dark horse” nomination.

  77. I read the entire article and it came across as honest and factual. And, speaking of honesty, let’s be honest – there has been a coup in America, and my fellow dumb Americans have allowed it to happen by believing the propaganda over the last 50 years. The coup os that in this so-called “democracy” (I know, representative republic internet know-it-alls) the average American has lost all power and leverage. In the mid-20th Century there was organized labor, hippie protests, the League of Decency, and citizens’ councils to give average Americans a say so in the direction of the country. Now all you have left is the illusion that your vote will change anything, or even that you are given a “choice” of candidates. The average American really has only two choices: submit to the Zionist dictators or support a revolution. Americans should be finding common cause with the yellow vests in France, Russians, and Hungarians. If you can’t organize a real revolution then the Zionists are now our authoritarian masters.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulsi_Gabbard#Early_life_and_education

    Gabbard was raised in a multicultural and multireligious household. Her father is of Samoan and European ancestry and an active lector at his Catholic church. Her mother, who was born in Decatur, Indiana, is of European descent and a practicing Hindu. Tulsi chose Hinduism as her religion while she was a teenager.

They don’t even care about Israel all that much. But what they do care about is power, Empire and war. That they really care about. Tulsi Gabbard is the living proof that the US Democrats and other pretend “liberals” are hell bent on power, empire and war.”

    The average Liberal voter thinks that Conservatives love Empire while Liberals oppose empires. Likewise, the average Middle American Republican voter thinks America is anything but the new British Empire and that America is always fighting against those bad empires and so must be very active globally to do good and prevent even worse bad.

    Speaking at a press conference on Friday morning, Gabbard said that Trump’s decision to pull out of the 1988 treaty was “reckless,” was “exacerbating a new Cold War” with Russia, and could spark another arms race.

    “Walking away from this agreement doesn’t solve our problems, it makes them worse. It doesn’t bring us closer to peace, it moves us closer to war,” she said.

    They don’t even care about Israel all that much. But what they do care about is power, Empire and war. That they really care about.

    I disagree. Empire is always dominated by a group, and US empire is dominated by Jews. If the US is merely after Empire, why not cook up excuses to sanction, invade, and destroy Israel? After all, the world community has condemned Israel many times over for its myriad crimes. Also, why not invade and smash Saudi Arabia as well? If US is just after empire and more wars, why not wage war on Israel and Saudis? More bucks for the military industrial complex.

    In truth, the US empire is selective. It is not empire for empire’s sake but empire for Zion’s sake. That is why US empire targets Russia, Syria, and Iran while hailing Israel and protecting Saudi Arabia. US empire is premised on the biases and hatreds of its ethnic super-elites. “Is it great for the Jews?”

    I think both the anti-war Left and anti-war Right are sizeable and growing. Speaking of the Dissident Right, which I am more in tune with, we just need a courageous leader to rally around. Right now the Dissident Right is more reliably anti-war than any other faction.

    But, really, the dissident right is not doctrinaire right at all as they are against Big Business and reject Libertarianism. Tulsi probably doesn’t even want the open support of the dissident right (very few are racist white supremacists, although the media has tarred us all with that brush). But I don’t see how she can get our support if she’s one of those Open Borders, eliminate ICE loons. I’m waiting for her to say something about the subject.

    There would have been no Bill of Rights without the anti-Federalist, not that it is of much use to us now.
    “From the beginning, the Antifederalists thought the Constitution favored a central government too heavily. They felt the state governments, and even individual citizens, lost too much power through its wording. Similarly, they felt the federal judicial system was much too strong. They did not agree that the balance of power provided for by the Constitution prevented one branch from becoming too powerful. They feared that Congress and the court system were too far removed from the people of the nation and that the voice of the people was not likely to be heard or heeded. Antifederalists, therefore, wanted a Bill of Rights added to the Constitution that preserved certain liberties of the common people. Even after the Constitution was ratified, they successfully kept their arguments in the forefront, pushing for the first ten amendments to be added to the document. The Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791, only two years after the Constitution went into effect.”

    The official mission is to serve as the voice for Jewish Democrats. According to its website, JDCA “promotes like-minded candidates and elected officials and embraces a platform that is grounded in fairness, integrity, the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam and a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.” JDCA claims that it “serves as the voice for Jewish Democrats and the socially liberal, pro-Israel values that Jewish voters hold dear.” The organization’s platform lists policies on numerous topics; among them are education, health care, paid family leave, taxes, climate change, Israel, Iran, fighting ant-Semitism, Holocaust education, immigration, criminal justice reform and reproductive rights…
    U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) issued a statement saying he looks forward with working with the JDCA on “issues that are important to all Americans, including maintaining the strong U.S.-Israel relationship, curtailing Iran’s malign activities, and combating anti-Semitism.”

    That act specifically gave the Supreme Court the explicit power to “interpret” the entire Constitution, including all amendments [ the first 10 of which had not even been ratified by the states at the time when the Judiciary Act became the law of the land].

    Your point is that the Ziocons or whatever you call them are so bent on war and empire that they’ll destroy anyone who tries to get in their way.

    It seems Jews are the only ones with real power. There are three kinds of people with power. Agents of Power. Wielders of Power. Directors(or Shapers) of Power. The fourth would be Architects(or writer-prophets) of Power, but their power is more complicated as it is often broadly historical than personally political.

    Marx didn’t have power but he was clearly an architect of history. Lenin and Stalin were Directors/Shapers of Power. Top communist elites who served under Stalin and Lenin were wielders of power. And below them was a whole bunch of agents of power.

    Most people in power are agents and wielders of power. They seek power mainly because they want to hold it or be held by it. They want to play with power but don’t own or shape it. And they didn’t make it. Imagine a sword that was made by a special someone. His vision and genius made it possible and forged it into reality. Then, imagine the person who comes to own the sword. He gets to decide what is to be done with the sword. Below him are those who are given permission to use the sword now and then but always for purposes given from above. And then, there are those who work to take care of the sword.

    Most people who seek power have no imagination and no ideas beyond what they were taught in schools and told by media. They are not curious or truth-seeking. They are mainly focused on status and success; they want to be in the best places with the best people. So, they are happy to be mere agents of power without ever asking what the power is about. (Edward Snowden is a rare exception.) Some individuals rise higher and become wielders of power. Military generals certain wield power, but they never have their own ideas or own agendas. They exist to execute the agendas and visions of others. They are top-managers and leaders-of-men. But leaders don’t dream up the agenda. They serve an agenda given to them and lead men to achieve its goals. Wielders of power submit to the Directors and Shapers of power. This tiny elite of shapers get to decide the direction of the nation or organization. It’s like a handful of rulers in Germany decided to invade Russia, and a handful of rulers in Japan decided to attack Pearl Harbor. They got to shape the direction and fate of the nation/world. Everyone below them could only wield power or serve it. They didn’t get to decide the direction of power.

    This is why US Power is both mighty and pathetic. It is the lone superpower with tremendous might. But look at most wielders and agents of power in the US, and they are hapless cucks. They wield tremendous power but have no say in the direction of power. All those people in CIA, NSA, Pentagon, FBI, and rest of Deep State have important positions with lots of power. But they lack will, independence, and autonomy. They have to be told what to do in order to execute the plan. They don’t get to decide the plan.
    Who gets to decide? The directors/shapers of Power, and this is where the real power resides. And given the character of American domestic and foreign policy, the real shapers of power are invariably Jews. Just listen to the official rhetoric and look at the results.
    Which Jews? It’s less about particular individuals though, to be sure, there is a handful of Jewish oligarchs with super wealth. Rather, it’s a coordinated mindset of tribal consensus and supremacism across many fields in media, academia, courts, law firms, finance, deep state, and etc. It’s like Jews have developed an elite hive mind that wink-wink knows what they are all thinking without having to meet together and discuss things. Neolib Jews, Neocon Jews, and other Jews know that IT(whatever must be done at the moment) has to be all about Jewish power, supremacism, Zionism, hoodwinking goyim, keeping goyim down and manipulating them, and etc. Take any subject or topic. Syria, for example. Whether it’s neocon Jews or neolibs, they have the same idea. Whether it’s Jews in media, academia, think tanks, or deep state, the words and actions flow from the same conviction: Anything must be done to bolster Israel’s power and globohomo hegemony, and if Syria must be torn apart or if a new cold war might do the trick, so be it. Such consensus across the entire stratum of Jewish opinions and politics and the fact that nearly all goyim serve and obey Jews on any given issue goes to show who are really DIRECTING the power. IF Jews were to suddenly reverse themselves and say “We are now okay with Russia and want Saudis destroyed”, most elite goyim will just go along and work for peace with Russia while planning the destruction of Saudi Arabia. It’s like horses are powerful but always move in the direction chose by the rider. John McCain held a powerful position and wielded a lot of power. But he was never a shaper of power. He barked and bit according to what his Jewish shapers and handlers told him.

    In some ways, the architect of power is the most powerful but in a historical and prophetic sense. Such people generally don’t get to have much power in the personal-political sense. Some end up badly. Jesus was killed. Muhammad was successful in war, but it was his followers who did the real conquering and power-grabbing. Marx died with almost nothing. Leo Strauss didn’t have power in government.
    And yet, by presenting new visions and laying down big ideas, they shaped entire histories and altered the trajectory of humanity in profound ways. So, in this sense, Jesus was the most powerful man that ever lived, and Marx was bigger than Lenin, Stalin, and Mao.
    In the current West, Jews are the only ones with prophetic power. As vile and disgusting as Homomania is, Jews envisioned it and put it out there. And then, Jewish elites directed and shaped the power to spread it far and wide. Why did the goy wielders and agents of power obey and go along? Because wielders and agents lack vision, imagination, and autonomy. It’s like so many German generals and officers went along with Hitler because, crazy as he was, Hitler had vision and could inspire others to see further ahead into the dream of 1000 yr Reich. Current Jewish Power may be crazy, but it thinks big and presents a worldview, a kind of globohomo prophecy of what must be. There is a messianic element in the madness. Madness may be maddening but it is also the stuff of passion, commitment, and conviction. It fires up those without imagination or inspiration.

    Unless there is a counter-prophetic force, Jewish Power will continue to own the architecture and shape of power. All the rest of power, from wielders to agents, will just go along with those with bigger vision and stronger will.

    But the Real Right can look back in history and recognize the noble themes of the Real Left and make them part of the Agenda. Thus, the Left-Right. A Real Right enriched with adoption of the best themes of the Real Left.

    The Real Right and the Real Left — need to get the Jews out of our lives. The first step is to get rid of the Federal Reserve.

    The Constitution says that the government should run a national bank owned by the government – not a privately-owned bank run by greedy Jew money changers. In 30 years, the Jew Allen Greenspan transferred America’s private corporate wealth into the hands of his Talmudic Jew tribe. Who can argue with that?

    The next thing to do is rediscover Jefferson. He was a local and state government advocate. The closer government is to its citizens the better. Today the US government is close to the Big Jews – PERIOD.

    The next thing is to recreate a cash society – a cash society is private society. A cash society keeps local money local. Wall Street is now a Jew playpen – where with almost every transaction in the nation – they take a slice of the money. Banking has become a new tax on society. Who needs that?

    Not so fast. Kennedy pictures should stay up. Increasingly I think I should mount one myself.
    Kennedy had questions about Israel getting nukes. Moreover his father – ambassador to England in the 30’s = had told him how the tribe had engineered the Brit war against Germany. My hunch is that Jack Kennedy had some healthy antisemitism in his system and the Anglo establishment, already semophiled, knew it And lets not forget that Kennedy was a Catholic at a time when the Church had not completely capitulated to Jewish Power. The old preVatican 2 church sometimes knew how to collar the tribe unlike Protestantism which is a kind of backsliding into the Hebrew Bible. Jews hated Catholics Angloes never stopped resenting Catholic Power or Irish Power for that matter. But Angloes were amenable to the tribe.

    Here is Perloff’s long, excellent and well footnoted article

    [MORE]


    So, not counting the “flash in the pan,” we have three shots from Buckman’s Tavern, four or five shots by the men who jumped behind the wall, perhaps more from “some quarter or other,” and “several” from the meeting house. Based on the British reports, it appears that possibly upwards of ten shots were fired on the redcoats before they returned fire. According to all British accounts, their return fire was not based on orders given, but was a spontaneous, disorderly reaction to the multiple shots the Americans fired. The green now billowed with musket smoke, and the British officers had to restrain their men with considerable difficulty.

    The three men who fired from the corner of Buckman’s Tavern surely knew they were jeopardizing the militia on the green. So must have the men who jumped the wall. It is noteworthy that Paul Revere – whose alarm brought the militia out in the first place – had been at Buckman’s Tavern only moments before the “shot heard round the world” was fired from that very place.

    The nonsense you spewed is simply to obfuscate the batshit craziness of your pagan beliefs.

    One only has to consider some of the following to understand the deceitful pretentiousness of what you say;

    1. Worship of the rapist Vishnu. According to Hindoo mythology, it is this “deity” who raped Tulsi, the wife of some Demon, who was granted unlimited powers. The demon’s only weakness, his “Achilles Heel,” was apparently the chastity of his wife… yes, Tulsi. So, Vishnu being impotent against said demon, rapes Tulsi. Chastity lost. Demon vanquished. Simple.

    2. Worship of gay deities. That would be Shiva and Vishnu… two of the Hindu Trinity. This is what one of their religious thinkers had to say about that.

    Homosexuality has never been considered a crime in Hindu culture. In fact, Lord Ayyappa was born of Hari-Hara (Vishnu & Shiva).

    3. Worship of genitalia. The Lingam and Yoni. Shiva’s Phallus and his consort’s Vagina.

    Similarly Jews think they are God ordained to rule, and the Goyim are at the bottom, just beasts, destined to serve the Jews. So its a caste system that they believe in. They teach this caste system religiously for generations and have passed down set techniques for achieving the goal of the caste system with themselves at the top as kings of this world, all the usual Protocols of the Elders of Zion stuff about infiltrating the local elite, taking over banking, academia, media, politics, etc, etc, etc.

    @Why did the goy wielders and agents of power obey and go along?

    First of all because they have been corrupted by Jewish money.
    The only ‘counter prophetic’ force was the Church that the ‘wielders and agents’ are hell bent to destroy.
    It was Voltaire who launched the rallying cry of the rationalists, libertarians, revolutionaries of all colors: “Ecrasez l’infâme” – “crush the infamous”, i.e. the Church and it was supposed to represent: “superstition, theological repression, Jesuits, monks, fanatical regicides, and the Inquisition in every shape and form; in short, all facets of the dark and regressive alliance between the Catholic Church and the French State” (of any state for that matter). He was drawing on the secret writings of the ‘first atheist’, Jean Meslier, a demented priest who had the revelation that “the Gospels were fables, Jesus Christ a fanatical lunatic, the Holy Trinity meaningless, the Eucharist only a bakery farce and the Old Testament nothing more than a compilation of pagan customs, that God, by relieving neither misery nor suffering, could not exist” (coincidentally, all the accusations that Jews bring against Christianity) and moved by “the greatest compassion for the people, proclaimed, 60 years before the French Revolution, that kings and religion were the root cause of their suffering and that their liberation required the fall of altars and the heads of kings. Aware that he was not a theorist, Meslier called on intellectuals to tackle this subject and to stand up for the causes of justice and truth”.
    So the Enlighteners and Encyclopedists set to the task. Diderot, one of the sacred monsters of Enlightenment drew the program of the Revolution: “Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest”.
    How could ‘Europe’ resist the Muslim neo-conquist when it fights against the only barrier against? When it continues to swear on the same ‘values’ of the Enlightenment?

She was calm – she talked of community and honor – she did not scream at the bad guys.

    It is interesting how Saker misrepresent “combat roosters” w.r.t. Trump here.

    “Lowering” is clearly terrorism at hands of anti-official criminal government of the “zone”.
    The same kind of Banderites’ assassinations so praised by Solzhenitsyn.
    BTW, Solzhenitsyn also said that in 1930-s Soviet jails arranged for condition, where even maintaining human-like appearance between arrest and trial demanded superhuman efforts, then he argues the fear of inhumanly cruel punishment make arrested to maintain themselves. Trick or treat.

    So, unable to challenge official powers of jails and camps in the open, criminal “authorities” instead compensated with irreversible cruelty and terrorism.

    Then, who had arranged “combat roosters”, their oppressors?
    Now, Saker admits it,

    > the prison/camp administration often uses these man as “combat roosters” – they send them to attack and even rape some prisoner

    So, 1) they could not “send” them – it would be a suicidal mission. If “roosters” had any power for – in the open – challenging the state if things, they would had done it without “being send”.
    If we may believe anecdotal evidence, then administration instead made special sectors, rooms, isolators, where viciously and mercilessly oppressed “roosters” were brought together, then they injected their one or two “urka” hard-case criminals to be threatened or “lowered”, basically using “criminal law” against itself.

    An, more importantly, 2) those were “administration” challenging the “criminal order” who arranged those “combat roosters” sections.
    In those safe heavens, inhumanly oppressed (no matter why), “roosters” then had their way to take revenge on the privileged oppressors when had chance. Also, those “combat roosters” obviously had no way back, after breaking taboo and assaulting non-rooster prisoner. They would be murdered if moved back to “common regime” sections. They could only survive as specially isolated administration’s tools.

    Now, what Saker is saying that Trump was lowered BY zyo-globy-lobby, and then became “combat roosters FOR his own oppressors, and against other anti-zyo-globby-lobby “prisoners”.

    This is not similar to what Saker tells about Soviet jails, it is the diametrically opposite of it.

  173. I like Tulsi Gabbard (though I don’t know her very well), but don’t care much for this:

    Megan McCain, was the most despicable, shooting daggers at Tulsi for her anti-war views. She apparently wants to continue the family legacy of dead bodies.

    Agree about Tulsi Gabbard – she sure is different from the rest of the identity screamers and screeches. If no one warms to her message of peace and oneness – America is lost.

    Chaney’s sour repulsive daughter has insinuated herself into the house GOP management. Same mean downer message as her father – America must always fear the worst – America must crush any opposition. When are these reprobates going to act like women? (There is something to be said about bad seed going from generation to generation.)

    The vast majority of Muslims are NOT Semites / Arabs.

    More than two hundred million muslims in India.
    More than two hundred million muslims in Indonesia.
    About two hundred million muslims in Nigeria.

    But you guys are of course right that Muslims of whatever race are trained into mindless obedience, irrationality, and fatalism — to a degree that’s impressive even for a religion — and the supposed non-extremists will go along with the extermination or subjugation of nonMuslims.

    The entire population of Nigeria is 196,000,000 (i.e. less than two hundred million) and only half of them are Muslim.

  178. I’m surprised that you don’t immediately find Tulsi believable. The simplest lie detector would have shown us what all the many parts of her total self reveal. I wonder how you can make judgements without looking at the whole person. Do you know what I mean?
    I wonder.
    The only thing that Tulsi needs to point out is that Assad has been tried in the Press. No one has proven anything. If Assad is guilty only because “The Press” says so, then the Press can judge her on the same grounds. Therefore it is important to defend Assad’s right to be proven guilty before slurs are thrown “in polite agreement” with her tormentors.

    Well, this is why her Assad remarks on The View were such a disappointment. Up until now she’s maintained that nothing has been proven, but suddenly “there’s no disputing” that he’s a brutal dictator who gassed his own people. Yikes! That was a brutal betrayal of her loyal (until now) supporters. How can she recover? Does she want to? Or has she slipped over to the dark side?

    Fatalism — I believe that the phrase “God willing” is debilitating for Muslims in today’s world.

    In Mohamad’s time the vagaries of God’s nature, was a chancy and unpredictable thing.

    Today much of what happens depends on what we do – not what God’s nature does.

    So today things are not always up to God – mostly they are up to us.

    The Muslim attitude and philosophy must change and get modern, reflecting our current capabilities.

    p.s. For what it is worth, I also believe that Arab Muslims would rather have a mystery – then a solution.

    Yikes is right – but – I am not going to cut and run just yet.

    If she still talks peace in the ME and says no to nukes – I will stick with her. That message is too important.

    Gabbard was getting murdered by the Assad thing. (He is not the nicest man in the world.) Every interview was about that – she was going against the whole Western media world all by herself – and losing!

    (Clearly I do not know – maybe that was the only reason anyone would interview her???)

    Everyone capitulates to the neocons/industrial/military complex or you end up room temperature. Financial collapse may be opportunity to regain control, but that will be dicey.

    Talsi Gabbard was on Tucker Carlson last night for a short segment. She did well.

    She talked about the wrongness of the US regime changes of other nations. She blamed the congress, MIC, Republicans, and Democrats.

    It was a good showing.

    Aloha!

  184. I am 74 years old. I have never voted for a Democrat, but I am supporting and contributing to Gabbard’s campaign because I am impressed with her articulate explanations of why we should not engage in these regime change wars. Even if she turns out to be flawed, it is important that she get into the Democratic nomination debates to make the anti-war case. She needs 65,000 donors to qualify.

    ” I have never voted for a democrat”

    Translated into precise English :

    “I have never voted for a Democrat, but now since I have lost my mind, and have become totally insane, I will proceed to vote for the party of blue-haired marxist lunatics, who are striving to transform the US into a northern version of Venezuela, simply because this woman is attempting to come across as an angel of peace”

    Absolutely, thank you!

  187. @RadicalCenter

    Thanks for the correction on Nigeria, Robin. Does that change the fact that the vast majority of Muslims in the world are not Arabs/Semites? Nope.

    Let me add another half a BILLION non-Semitic Muslims:

    210 million in Pakistan

    155 million in Bangladesh

    83 million in Iran

    80 million in Turkey

    10-12 million in Philippines

    OK. I’ve forgotten, what was the point of this?

    And for this she has been the target of the worst kind of smear campaign, one that was internally generated by a US funded, DNC-enabled, opposition firm.

    Gabbard Reveals the Bankruptcy of American Left

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D – HI) is a perfect case study with what is wrong with American politics. She represents fairly standard Democratic party positions on issues like gay rights, gun control, health care and redistributive tax policy.

    But on the crucial issue of foreign policy she’s a dissenter. And, from what I can figure out, this dissention comes from a principled position.

    And that makes her persona non grata in the current political climate of partisanship.

  190. If Tulsi Gabbard:

    – Keeps to the truth and keeps to peace and love.
    – Stay patriotic, for example speak positivley about a high border security and protectionism by Trump. Not fall into the Trump-circus, but focus on left-wing politics. – Speak about what she wants to do.
    – Does not act submissively to the nazi-Zio-lobby, but calmly points to the facts and say that her position is americans first, not sionists nor israelis first.
    – Get very competent and good security. Only military people she really knows and trusts.
    – Get help from alternative media and the people. I feel she has it.
    – Break away directly if the corrupted DNC does not choose her.
    – Be green. Get into ecological sustainability in an honest way (not the climate hoax way).
    – Promise people with jobs in the war industry other jobs or other security in a credible way. For examle. Lower working hours per week for all. Share work with same pay.
    – Open the door for broad Rainbow coalition for peace with Greens, Socialists and Libertarians etc. They might not join her, but it would prove her real willingness to topple the warmongers.

    …then her prognosis might be very good, in my opinion. She is a fresh wind in a stinking swamp.

    She could get far alone, but with support by many Greens and Libertarians she could get all the way easily. Bashing her in the media will not work, only black out or murder.
