“Racism is one of the main engines and expressions of the current counter-revolution. In Venezuela the revolutionary struggle to end white supremacy and for self-determination is slow, and complicated by white elites, backed by US imperialism, and by the denial of many that racism persists.” Quote from Venezuelanalysis.com, “Racism Without Shame in the Venezuelan Counter-Revolution

The US and Canada are not supporting “the return of democracy” in Venezuela as they claim. Instead, they are following in their histories of colonialism, imperialism, exploitation, illegal wars of aggression, and overthrowing governments. They are crushing democracy in Venezuela by exploiting class and race warfare, being carried out by an elite white-supremacist minority against the poor, Afro-Indigenous, and other Venezuelans of color.

A white-minority has dominated commerce and politics in Venezuela since the days of slavery in the 19th century. Venezuela had slavery, just as did the rest of the Caribbean and Latin America. Slavery went back to the early 16th century Spanish conquistadors. More abducted Africans were trafficked to the Caribbean and Latin America, than to the USA.

Slavery was officially abolished in all of the Americas in the 19th century. The history of slavery in the Caribbean and Latin America has left a legacy of prejudice, discrimination and class conflict, which has largely gone unresolved.

Different skin complexions of Latin Americans are due mostly to various mixtures of European, Spanish and Indigenous bloodlines. The darker the skin color, along with other ethnic features, the more there is of discrimination in education, employment, and opportunity. Discrimination against blacks and people of color perpetuates poverty and class conflict. In Venezuela, as elsewhere in the Caribbean and Latin America, political power, commerce and wealth is largely in the hands of a minority of upper-class elites, whom are mostly whiter and lighter than those with darker skin complexion.

One can get a sense of how much class and race affect Latin American society by watching Spanish language movies and soap operas. Here are just two examples below: the setting for the TV series “The White Slave” is 19th century Colombia; and the setting for “Teresa” is contemporary Mexico.

Hugo Chavez and his successor Maduro are exuberantly despised by the elite white-supremacis t minority. They still call Chavez negro, savage, monkey and ape. Maduro gets the same; and the media never fails to remind the public that he was a former bus driver, which is code for “low-class”. Maduro is proud of his humble beginning as a bus driver and his Afro-Indigenous ethnicity. Chavez was proud of his poor Afro-Indigenous background too, and his final resting place is in the barrio where he and Maduro came from.

In 1998 the elite white minority was voted out of the presidential residence Miraflores Palace. Instead of being purged by Chavez, as an authoritarian dictator would have done, the elites maintained their political power base, dominance in commerce, and control of the media. They have been trying to get back the Miraflores Palace, and indignantly consider it their birthright. They have used every means at their command, and even invited the US to invade the country, which would result in thousands of deaths.

In April 2002 the elite white minority tried a coup against Chavez, backed and financed by the US, which failed. In December 2002 they tried a strike by the management at the Venezuelan oil company Petróleos de Venezuela. They tried a recall referendum against Chavez in 2004, and lost at the polls. They tried to unify the opposition political parties with the sole purpose of defeating Maduro in 2013, and failed. They tried to delegitimize the 2018 presidential election by organizing a boycott. They tried to assassinate Maduro with a drone in 2018. Their attempts have failed.

The white elites have sabotaged the economy, used mass demonstrations, and organizeD violence. The self-appointed Juan Guaido declared himself the interim president, and called for a military coup d’etat, that failed miserably. Even with their control of the media and commerce they have failed to oust Maduro.

The elite upper class has millions of dollars of financial support from the US and Canada. Some of the EU countries, following pressure from the US, have thrown their support for the Guaido coup plotters too. The UK froze $1.2 billion of Venezuela’s much needed reserves for life-saving food and medicine. Spain turned its back on the people of Venezuela.

The above political caricature of Afro-Indigenous Hugo Chavez, is titled “Ape Commander”, an obvious racial slur. As the article Racism Without Shame in the Venezuelan Counter-Revolution from Venezuelanalysis explains:

”In Venezuela, the revolutionary struggle to end white supremacy and for self-determination is a slow slog, complicated by two forces: One, the white elites, backed by U.S. imperialism, and many of the middle class who support them, cling tenaciously to their power and privilege. Two, the denial by whites, and nearly everyone else that racism persists.”

Above is a caricature of Nicolas Maduro as a donkey, which is a racist slur. Animalization of black and brown people is a common theme in the white media. Maduro is pictured as a dumb animal being driven by a white Cuban. Ironically, one of the early achievements of the Cuban Revolution was to pass strong antidiscrimination laws, and largely end the racial divide in Cuba.

The US and Canada have opposed the government of Venezuela since the election of Hugo Chavez in 1998. Chavez won the election by a landslide on his platform of participatory democracy, local governance, frequent elections, rewriting the constitution, social reforms, healthcare for all, free education, adult literacy programs, and other basic economic freedoms. He called his platform the Bolivarian Revolution, his movement is called Chavismo, his followers are called Chavistas and they are fiercely loyal to Maduro. Maduro is fiercely loyal to Chavez’s memory, and the Bolivarian process. The country is renamed The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, after el libertador Simon Bolivar.

The Bolivarian process has had dramatic success in reducing inequality, cutting poverty in half, providing adequate housing, fighting child malnutrition, improving public education, practically eliminating adult illiteracy, reducing unemployment, and providing social security. (See appendix A for economic charts of the success of the Bolivarian Revolution, or click the link HERE.) The US and Canada are trying to destroy the successes of the Bolivarian process with an illegal economic blockade and violent subversion.

Before his death, Chavez endorsed his Vice President Nicolas Maduro as his successor. Chavez died in March of 2013, and a new election as required by the constitution was held in April. Maduro won by a surprisingly small margin of 1.5% against the pro-business opponent Henrique Capriles. The opposition cried foul as they always do when they lose.

Venezuela has a voting system with both an electronic ballot and a hard copy, which Jimmy Carter called the best voting technology in the world in 2012. In that election, which Carter monitored, Chavez beat Capriles by a landslide, 55.1% to 44.3%. Still, the US and the mainstream media called Chavez a dictator. Now they call Maduro a dictator.

In the 2018 presidential election Maduro won easily with 67.8% of the vote against his two opponents Henri Falcón and Javier Bertucci. Maduro had invited the United Nations to send election observers, but the UN declined because the opposition told the UN not to come. Why would the opposition disinvite the UN if they thought the election was going to be rigged? Answer, because they have given up on democratic elections. They are outnumbered by the politically awakened poor, Afro-Indigenous, and people of color who live in the barrios.

The US and Canada are violating international law and the UN Charter by interfering in the internal affairs of Venezuela. The fact that Venezuela has tremendous wealth in oil, gold, precious earth, minerals and abundant natural and human resources is the obvious lure in whetting their greed.

The killer economic blockade that the US and members of the Lima Group (a US-controlled international cabal designed as a propaganda prop to legitimate attacks on Venezuela’s government) have imposed is causing tens of thousands of deaths, needless suffering, and is destroying Venezuela’s economy. The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) estimates that 40,000 Venezuelans have died as a direct result of the economic blockade. Since the blockade is intentionally targeting civilians, it is a violation of the Geneva Conventions, and a crime against humanity.

The CEPR disputes the US, Canadian, and mainstream media narrative that Nicolas Maduro is the blame for the current economic crisis. Mark Weisbrot of CEPR says that denying that the blockade is the cause of Venezuela’s economic crisis is like “climate change denial”.

The US and the mainstream media blame Maduro for “wrecking” the economy. They blame the Bolivarian process for having spent too much on social programs for the poor, not diversifying the economy, not fighting crime, and not putting away reserves in anticipation of low oil prices. The problem is that it is not true. Watch the 17-minute interview of Mark Weisbrot below:

According to a United Nation’s analysis, and 150 experts and activists, the economic slump from falling oil prices was exacerbated by Obama’s economic sanctions in 2015. The blockade imposed by Trump and the Lima Group in 2017 has sent the economy into crisis. That is what economic sanctions are intended to do, as is well-known (e.g. “make the economy scream.”).

Other oil dependent countries in the region are struggling through the depression in oil prices. Venezuela could have too, except for the economic blockade, confiscation of Venezuela’s US oil company Citgo, and the freezing of assets by the US, Canada, and the EU countries. The constant threat of a US invasion diverts needed resources to increased defense spending, which is another drain on the economy.

What the US and Canada are doing to Venezuela meets the definition of terrorism. They are using violence against civilians, starving them to death and preventing life-saving medicine from getting through, for political and economic purposes. It is robbery in plain sight, but many people believe the mainstream media propaganda, rather than their own “lying eyes”. The blindness is caused by “blockade denial”.

The elite white minority of Venezuelans want control of the vast wealth of Venezuela’s natural resources, and the US and Canada are helping for their own imperial designs. It is a historical pattern. The US and Canada have long supported dictators and opposed anti-colonial and democratic movements in the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa and Asia. Before the rise of the US Empire, Canada backed the British Empire in the Caribbean, and even considered annexing its own colonies in the West Indies. Now the UK and Canada are the US Empire’s junior imperial partners.

After the 1898 Spanish-American war the US colonized Cuba and Puerto Rico, as well as the Philippines. The US invaded Mexico in 1914 to support the oligarchy against the nationalists. The US refused to recognize Haiti’s government until 1862, even though it had gained independence from France in 1804. The US militarily occupied Haiti from 1915 to 1934. During the Spanish Civil War, the US supported the fascist dictator Franco.

Some of the most notorious dictators that the US has backed are Batista in Cuba, Trujillo in the Dominican Republic, Pinochet in Chile, Noriega in Panama, and “Papa Doc” and “Baby Doc” Duvalier in Haiti. During the 1980’s the US sponsored death squads in Central America. The US backed the French in Indochina and Africa, the British in the Middle East and the 1982 colonial Falkland Island War. The US backed Suharto of Indonesia in his genocidal invasion of East Timor. The US backed apartheid South Africa, and had Nelson Mandela on its terrorist list until 2008. Is this the picture of a country that loves democracy and human rights?

Just as the US overthrew a democratic government in Guatemala in 1954 for United Fruit Company, the US is now trying to overthrow a democratic government in Venezuela for the benefit of US oil companies, and Canadian mining companies. And just as neocon Elliot Abrams was in charge of the death-squads in Central America during the 1980’s, he is now Trump’s special envoy for Venezuela. To believe that the US wants to “restore democracy” in Venezuela takes cognitive dissonance.

The US is supporting a cabal of elite white supremacists in Venezuelan to push the Washington Consensus of IMF loans, privatization of state-owned enterprises, invasion of foreign capital, Structural Adjustment Programs (SAP) by the IMF, neoliberal debt slavery and austerity for the poor, Afro-Indigenous, and people of color. Even Monsanto is behind the coup because Venezuela is one of the few countries that bans cancer causing Roundup and GMO seeds.

An article in the Journal of the US Army from 2005 laid out in detail the US’s objections against the Bolivarian process. Even when there was no question about the legitimacy of the elections and the economy was doing great, the US was planning a coup d‘etat. One reason is oil, and the US Army article is blunt about it:

So, the US and Venezuela disagree on their “preference” for “this strategic asset”. The Venezuelan people want to use their oil wealth for the benefit of Venezuelans, and the US objects? Of course, Canada’s “preference” is for Canadian mining companies to control Venezuela’s gold too.

Venezuela is a sovereign country, a member of the United Nations, and Maduro is the internationally recognized president. (A status the US and its vassals and allies in crime continually work to undermine). Venezuela has the right to choose its own preferences. What the article calls “this strategic asset” is not up for grabs. The US and Canada don’t have a right to vote on it. The fact that the US and Canada even think that they can dictate ownership of “this strategic asset”, shows how arrogant and bullying they are. This is the 21st century, the Monroe Doctrine should be dead, and the Caribbean and Latin America ain’t nobody’s “backyard”.

The US Army article further whines that Chavez and Maduro encouraged the unity of South America, challenging US hegemony. Venezuela has a right to its own foreign relations. Other invented crimes are that Venezuela backed a stronger OPEC, and opposed the illegal Invasion of Iraq, and the Worldwide War on Terror. Venezuela has good relations with Cuba and Nicaragua, thus irritating the US further.

Strangely, the US Army article finds the Bolivarian process of “participatory democracy” rather than “representative democracy” to be nefarious? It’s odd that the US would object to the Venezuelan people having more democracy and local control, rather than less. Try explaining to Chavistas how Trump became president even though he got fewer votes than Clinton, and they will laugh in your face about “representative democracy”.

What is depressing is that most of the North American public is still fooled by the US propaganda that it is motivated by democracy and human rights. The historical evidence is to the contrary. The US is a serial predator of illegal wars of aggression, which have killed millions of people, and Canada has been right there side-by-side. They have invaded at least a half-dozen countries in the past few decades, and they are threatening a half-dozen more. The US has imposed illegal economic sanctions on Russia, Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Venezuela. The US State Department has bragged that the sanctions are “working” because civilians are dying. That is not concern for human rights. It is coercion, hostage taking and demands for ransom.

The US often violates international law, reneges on treaties, ignores the United Nations, defies the International Criminal Court, and breaks domestic laws. It conducts illegal wars of aggression, drone assassinations, night raids, and covert operations . The US supplies weapons, logistics and ammunition that are used by Israel and Saudi Arabia to kill civilians. The US supports 70% of the world’s dictators. Does any of that fit with a country that is concerned about democracy and human rights? The US and Canada are recklessly instigating a bloody civil war in Venezuela.

A State Department official named Brian Hook in a leaked memo disabused his boss at that time, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, about the actual aims of US foreign policy. The memo tutored Tillerson that the US is only interested in weaponizing democracy and human rights to destabilize adversaries. The US should treat friendly dictatorships, such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Honduras, “different and better”, according to Hook.

As Hook explains, agitating countries about democracy and human rights is destabilizing, and the US does not want to do that to friendly dictators. With adversaries though, the US wants to destabilize them even if they are democracies, like Venezuela. For adversaries, they are never democratic enough to please the US. They should be destabilized and kept off balance, according to Hook.

It is false that US foreign policy objectives are for the benefit of the US public. US foreign policy is for the benefit of corporations, special interest groups and oligarchs. The beneficiaries of US foreign policy are the elites, and they grease US foreign policy with campaign contributions, bribes and other perks to government officials.

What drives US foreign policy is the quest for absolute military superiority, preservation of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency, maintaining the capitalist world order, controlling the world’s natural and human resources, promoting a stable business-friendly environment for Western transnational corporations, and seeking opportunities for windfall profits for cronies.

In other words, the US wants to control the whole world. If that means overthrowing non-compliant democratically elected governments and supporting military coups and dictators, killing millions of people, then as far as the US is concerned, so be it. That is criminally insane.

It is the US public that pays for US foreign policy and wars, either through taxes or by the lack of government programs, such as universal healthcare, education, mass transit and a “Green New Deal”. US foreign policy does not keep the American people safer. Wars and the threat of wars make the American people less safe.

The foreign policy elites, also called the “power elite”, which is a phrase coined by C. Wright Mills in his book The Power Elite, are a closely knit alliance of “military, government, and corporate officials perceived as the center of wealth and political power in the US”. The power elite usually come from wealthy families. They all went to Ivy League schools, they belong to the same country clubs, they are members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg group. They sit on the boards of corporations, the media, banks, foundations, universities, and think tanks; and they become Senators and Presidents.

The power elite is a clique. The members all go to the same cocktail parties, their spouses are friends, and their children go to private schools together. Those not born into the power elite have to earn admission by being faithful servants, and climb to the top while they gain experience, power and influence. The power elite is the Deep State. The Deep State makes US foreign policy and declares war; not the American people. The American people pay, but do not get to “play”.
The Deep State, and those that serve it, such as John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, have no moral and legal restraints.

Humanitarian interventionists, the right to protect (R2P), American values, democracy and human rights are weaponized, as Hook explained to Tillerson. It is all about US hegemony and world domination. Under three US presidents, Bush, Obama and Trump, the US has been trying to overthrow the government of Venezuela.

Twenty years ago, the democratically elected president of Venezuela became a target of the US. There was no question that the election was fair, democratic and it was declared so by international observers, including the Carter Center. Hugo Chavez won the presidency by a landslide. Instead of cheering for democracy at work, the US and Canada soon started plotting to overthrow the elected government.

In 2002 the US backed an unsuccessful military coup d’etat. The US immediately endorsed the coup government, and the mainstream media cheered. The coup failed because the people demanded a return of their kidnapped president. Within 48 hours Hugo Chavez was back in the Miraflores Palace.

Below is a 15-minute documentary on the 2002 coup attempt and the US involvement. The video features Eva Golinger. Golinger is a US attorney who has followed events in Venezuela for decades, she was a legal advisor to Hugo Chavez, and she has written several books. The most well-known is The Chavez Code: Cracking US Intervention in Venezuela.

So, how does the US square what it now says is its concern for democracy, when the US tried to overthrow the government in 2002, regardless of it being a democratically elected government? The US’s fallback argument is that an adversary is never democratic enough, as Hook explained.

It is the same answer the US gave in 1954 when it overthrew the democratically elected president of Guatemala, Jacobo Árbenz. It is the same answer the US gave in 1973 when it overthrew and assassinated Chile’s democratically elected president, Salvador Allende. It is the same answer it gave in the 1980’s when it was backing the Contras in Nicaragua. It is the same answer the US gave when it overthrew the democratically elected Jean-Bertrand Aristide of Haiti in 1994, and then overthrew him again when he was elected in 2004. It is the same answer that the US gave when it backed the military coup in Honduras in 2009. For the US, an adversary is never democratic enough, and it must go.

Maduro must go because he is costing US and Canadian corporations and banks money. He challenges the Washington Consensus. Maduro threatens US hegemony in Latin America and the Caribbean. Those are unforgiveable sins in the eyes of the US. It is like putting a great big bull’s eye on your back. Being a US target has nothing to do with democracy and human rights.

Vice President Pence and Prime Minister Trudeau met in Ottawa at the end of May. In their joint statement they spoke about many issues that the US and Canada share. They chitchatted about their peaceful borders, joked about basketball rivalry, and spared about trade. One issue that they agreed on was Venezuela. Both said that President Nicolas Maduro must go. When the US says “must go”, it includes assassination.

Here is what Trudeau had to say on Venezuela:

“This afternoon, the Vice President and I spoke about the concerning situation in Venezuela. Our government remains committed to the importance of finding a peaceful return to democracy and stability for Venezuelans.”

Pence followed with his statement on Venezuela:

“Canada has imposed sanctions on 113 of the dictator’s cronies. You’ve promoted the cause of freedom and a free Venezuela inside the Lima Group and the OAS. And the two of us have said, with one voice, that Nicolás Maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power, and Nicolás Maduro must go.”

Restoring democracy in Venezuela is a red herring. The US and Canadian foreign policies are not concerned about democracy. It is lip service for the home folks. US foreign policy has always preferred strong dictators and puppet governments in their “back yard”. The US and Canada have historically exploited their backyard for its natural resources, tropical monocrops, cheap labor, and schemes to get rich. Those that have opposed the US and Canada can be found in mass graves all over the Caribbean and Latin American.

Trump is refreshingly crude, compared to the smooth-talking Obama. Reportedly when Trump first took office, one of his first questions was why is the US not at war with Venezuela, since they have all that oil and they are right in our backyard?

International law is meaningless to the US, and that is not new with Trump. The US has a long history of ignoring international law. Both Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Trump’s national security advisor John Bolton have a vision of the world as the wild west, with no international law, just anarchy. It is the cynical view that might-makes-right, and that the US is above the law.

It was the Bill Clinton administration that injected new currency into the phrases American exceptionalism and the indispensable nation. That was the polite way to say that the US is above the law. It is just that Trump, Bolton, Pompeo, and Abrams do not have good manners. That is not a policy change, it’s Trump stepping into an imperial presidency that was left to him by Bush and Obama.

Oh, the Trump administration still speaks out of both sides of its mouth with platitudes that the US is a force for good in the world, and that its values are democracy and human rights. Only fools believe that anymore.

Venezuelan Economic and Social Performance Under Hugo Chávez, in Graphs

1. Growth (Average Annual Percent)

Source: Banco Central de Venezuela
Source: Banco Central de Venezuela

This graph shows overall GDP growth as well as per-capita growth in the pre-Chávez (1986-1999) era and the Chávez presidency.

From 1999-2003, the government did not control the state oil company; in fact, it was controlled by his opponents, who used it to try to overthrow the government, including the devastating oil strike of 2002–2003. For that reason, a better measure of economic growth under the Chávez government would start after it got control over the state oil company, and therefore the economy.

Above you can see this growth both measured from 2004, and for the 1999-2012 period. We use 2004 because to start with 2003, a depressed year due to the oil strike, would exaggerate GDP growth during this period; by 2004, the economy had caught up with its pre-strike level of output. Growth after the government got control of the state oil company was much faster.

4. Unemployment Rate: Before and After Oil Strike

After the oil strike (and the deep recession that it caused) ended in 2003, unemployment dropped drastically, following many years of increases before Chávez was elected. In 1999, when Chávez took office, unemployment was 14.5 percent; for 2011 it was 7.8 percent.

5. Poverty and Extreme Poverty Rate

    A white “supreeeeeeeemist” elite?

    C’mon.

    The nose isn’t going to allow that.

    The whole purpose of the U.S. military was to shore up white Capital on a global scale; up until Netanyahu took it over, and look where it’s at right now – seems to have given up on the Venezuelan project, and gunning for Israel’s enemy.

    Indian or more totalitarianly, Indigenista IQ in north and South America is average 83.

    White IQ average is 100, or for Spaniards, about 97 today.

    Indian low IQ is the main reason north America was taken by Whites, and ditto South America.

    Constant warfare amongst Indians prevented them from allying to fight off Whites..

    A recent parallel is the Palestinians fighting one-another as late at about 1947 when they should have been getting ready to kill Jews.

    Indians were a Stone Age, not even a bronze age culture when Whites arrived. If you credit Gibson’s Apocalpto, the movie, the Indians missed a chance to go with the Europeans and Christ …and just returned to the jungle.

    The jungle is where the indigenous/Injuns still are, both on the Rez here in the US and in S. America, or right now in Venezuela. I remember when Chavez won. a few years ago, an Indian women said (jewyorktimes article) that Hugo was going to build me a house.

    That is what Indian is, when they are not swinging machetes at one another.. White folks build their own houses and rocket ship to the moon.

    Evolution. Sorry, but that is just the way it is.

    by the way, average is only average. I chatted up an 18 year old Mexican kid yesterday. Very smart and getting into a local sort of prep school. He is for Trump and understands what I remark in my above post. He understands that if the Dem Coalition of the Low Life take over the ballot box, that the white guys are coming out . sounds like he may be on the White side of things.

    Remember in Camp of the Saints, the only guy willing to shoot the Indians was an Indian guy.

    Uhhh … that’s a tautology.

    One can get a sense of how much class and race affect Latin American society by watching Spanish language movies and soap operas. Here are just two examples below: the setting for the TV series “The White Slave” is 19th century Colombia; and the setting for “Teresa” is contemporary Mexico.

    We make up for it by using off-white actresses like Sofía Vergara in the US.

    What the US and Canada are doing to Venezuela meets the definition of terrorism. They are using violence against civilians, starving them to death and preventing life-saving medicine from getting through, for political and economic purposes.

    Why settle for the T word? Sanctions that operate on entire populations, even when they are UN approved, are still crimes against humanity in the way such things were defined for the Nuremburg Trials.

  15. Is it “white supremacist” to hire an editor? This takes TL;DR into previously uncharted territory.

  16. Pear, it’s your buddies, the anti-racists, who did all those bad things. they’ve been running the Federal bureaucracy for a very long time, and openly since c.a. AD 1970. You want to complain, complain to them.

    The anti-racists have the same problem Hitler did: where’s the money to keep the “welfare state” bribes coming for crucial constituencies? Hitler robbed the feeble minded (of their lives, to save medical costs costs) Jews, then neighboring countries [1]. Domestically, your buds (or perhaps I should say “con-specifics”, since they seem to regard themselves as separate from humanity) have sold the US capital stock and are now genociding the whites (sorry, “those who _they_ think are whites”). Internationally, they’ve stolen pretty much everything that wasn’t nailed down _and_ rented out the US DoD as mercs to anybody they needed as allies or to get needed votes/money from the foreigners’ relatives in the US.

    They (or rather, you) have also lied like wall to wall _carpeting_ in a grand ballroom about what they were doing, acting rather like a guilty three year old child.

    To paraphrase Zelazny:

    Monopoly power.. monopoly over everything<= people call it Hegemonia.. <= allows no competition to exist or survive. This I call Economic Zionism.. EZ tolerates no competition; it insist that only the EZ are entitled to a monopoly; and their entitlement is based in their power to destroy and take, so everything of value to a population or its civilization belongs to the EZ or the EZ have the right to come and take it so to speak.

    Copyright, patents are rule of law generated monopolies. Without law, rule or its equivalent (a gun) these types of monopolies cannot exist (governments are the guns). Copyright and patents are used to establish and maintain monopoly power in developed nations and in the global economy between nations.

    Copyrights and patents capture the human expression of ideas and know-how into public claims of private ownership and such claims are proved by recording the claim with some authority somewhere (usually a government office) because it takes a law claims that I have a monopoly (patent or copyright) to be recognized (recorded) and for such recorded claims to be enforced it takes the police power of a government to maintain a private claimant's right to the monopoly embodied in a patent or a copyright. (the state will arrest the violator, or force the infringor to restore the profits to the monopoly holder, just like a deed entitles the property owner to have the Trespasser arrested).

    Products of the mind are human expressions [of know-how, invention, and the like] that are themselves products (like art) or that can be used produce products.

    In nations that lack the capacity to contribute many profitable brain power generated expressions, colonialism is the name of the game. What is different about colonialism it that it works to take by rule of law (ownership, lease, franchise of a government service, franchise of a management contract with a government or governmental authority) the resources of a nation and to deplete the individual personal wealth of its citizens (company store concept so to speak), and to exploit (enslave) the labor in that colonized place to make or improve products or to extract minerals (like oil extraction and refinery operations, gold extraction, purification , storage and packaging operations, water service companies, etc. ). These products produce $ churn, and the dollars that flow through the local or global $ churns are called economies.

    The hegemon uses the rule making and behavioral control capacity of the state to make sure the profits derived from the products in the churn all flow into the pockets of the colonizer-hegemon. Again, the net benefit of all such operations from a place controlled much like a colony by a hegemon always end up in the pockets of the hegemon. The EZ allow no competition they destroy it until they own it, or until all the benefits of all of the profits earned by the competition flows into the possession and control of the EZ.

    I am not sure its limited towhite capital. The capital of the economic zionist is global and flows across national boundaries like water in a drain pipe. (many global bankers, elites and their attached monopoly powered corporations are owned by non whites); its not about racism, its a system of economics that exploits everyone and everything for the benefit of a very few.

    Economic Zionism (sometimes referred to a owners of everything and decision makers for all are color blind) is not about race, color, religion, culture, or anything but compete, absolute and total ownership and control

    Very good, informative and well-researched article. Thank you to the author and Ron Unz for his fair tolerance and liberalism to publish here the account of the Venezuelan struggle against the home-grown white elite supported by the Zionist regime in charge of the US.

    Hello white supremacist rednecks! The Nosey Uncle Sam (heretofore called NUS) appointed the evil spirit of Zionism, a.k.a. zombie Elliot Abrams, as the chief schemer of the conspiracy by white supremacists of Venezuela against the elected slightly socialist government of that country! What does that tell you? What side are you on?

    It tells me that the NUS and its agents are against socialism of any hue, properly elected or otherwise. The US history is strewn with examples of that visceral antagonism, the list too long to squeeze in here. If they are so fiercely anti-socialist it follows they are horribly fierce against communism: the redder it is, the greater the hate. Yet, it is commonly acknowledged in disparagement and scorn by some of the paragons of the commentariat (no names) here that the commie Judeo-Bolsheviks are in charge of NUS! That there is a strong Judeo component is clear, but commie Bolsheviks they are not.

    I haven’t the time or talent of C.J. Hopkins to elaborate on that conundrum. I only want to show hypocrisy and downright mendacity at work.

    Meanwhile, one should ask oneself whether the the racist whites of Venezuela deserve our support and solidarity. They are the elite and wealthy and behind them there is a sordid history of exploitation and abuse; they are the 1%, the same clique the deplorables and proles should detest.

    Marxist-Leninist Communism was tried (for a long time) and found wanting. But one could argue that the Bolshevist spirit of destruction survives, and is now attached to Anglo-American finance capitalism. And there were always strong links between American progressivism (now clearly the hegemonic ideology of the West) and Communism:
    https://www.unqualified-reservations.org/2013/09/technology-communism-and-brown-scare/

    [MORE]

    It’s actually not hard to explain the Brown Scare. Like all witch hunts, it’s built on a conspiracy theory. The Red Scare was based on a conspiracy theory too, but at least it was a real conspiracy with real witches—two of whom were my father’s parents. (The nicest people on earth, as people. I like to think of them not as worshipping Stalin, but worshipping what they thought Stalin was.) Moreover, the Red Scare was a largely demotic or peasant phenomenon to which America’s governing intellectual classes were, for obvious reasons, immune. Because power works and culture is downstream from politics—real politics, at least—the Red Scare soon faded into a joke.

    As a mainstream conspiracy theory, fully in the institutional saddle, the Brown Scare is far greater and more terrifying. Unfortunately no central statistics are kept, but I wouldn’t be surprised if every day in America, more racists, fascists and sexists are detected, purged and destroyed, than all the screenwriters who had to prosper under pseudonyms in the ’50s. Indeed it’s not an exaggeration to say that hundreds of thousands of Americans, perhaps even a million, are employed in one arm or another of this ideological apparatus. Cleaning it up will require a genuine cultural revolution—or a cultural reaction, anyway. Hey, Americans, I’m ready whenever you are.

    The logic of the witch hunter is simple. It has hardly changed since Matthew Hopkins’ day. The first requirement is to invert the reality of power. Power at its most basic level is the power to harm or destroy other human beings. The obvious reality is that witch hunters gang up and destroy witches. Whereas witches are never, ever seen to gang up and destroy witch hunters. By this test alone, we can see that the conspiracy is imaginary (Brown Scare) rather than real (Red Scare).

    Think about it. Obviously, if the witches had any power whatsoever, they wouldn’t waste their time gallivanting around on broomsticks, fellating Satan and cursing cows with sour milk. They’re getting burned right and left, for Christ’s sake! Priorities! No, they’d turn the tables and lay some serious voodoo on the witch-hunters. In a country where anyone who speaks out against the witches is soon found dangling by his heels from an oak at midnight with his head shrunk to the size of a baseball, we won’t see a lot of witch-hunting and we know there’s a serious witch problem. In a country where witch-hunting is a stable and lucrative career, and also an amateur pastime enjoyed by millions of hobbyists on the weekend, we know there are no real witches worth a damn.

    “Slavery went back to the early 16th century Spanish conquistadors. ”

    No farther back? American Indians in that area never practiced slavery? The Spanish did not stumble into American Indians with slaves? And those Numinous Negroes brought as slaves to the New World – that happened because there was no slavery in Africa, no African black kings waging wars primarily to capture slaves, no blacks operating huge slave markets, selling people to other blacks, to Mohammedans, to whites, to anybody who could pay the purchase cost?

    That is why most of even the best arguments starting from a ‘liberal’ perspective fail, invariably because of encroaching absurdity that is inherent in the starting point.

    Here is the starting point for all discussions of the effects of Globalism: The economic factors that are driving the wrongs of the Globalist cabal are first and foremost destroying, worldwide, the white middle class’s ability to have meaningful say in ‘local’ politics and fully destroying the white working class.

    You cannot steal from those who have nothing. The super poor, if you will, of the world cannot be a threat to the super rich. The super rich use the poor, of all gradations, to keep the middle class in check and to batter into utter submission and, it increasingly seems clear into racial extinction, the white working class. Those – not any of the world’s super poor or working class blacks and browns – are a threat to the super rich.

    This is not a matter of average IQ across various races and ethnicities. The high IQ Chinese have a history, their entire history, of a very small Elite owing and controlling 80% or more of the national wealth, meaning that for most of its history, China has had huge numbers of people living below or barely above the poverty line.

    The only people to develop societies strikingly divergent from the above are whites, and those are the only societies that have built in checks against the worst tyranny.

    Blacks and browns, at least those who have more than subsistence economies, are just like the Chinese in the above regard. If a black tribe/nation is not manipulated by whites, it will become one in which some 10% will own and control 60 or 75 or perhaps even 80% of the wealth of the tribe/nation. Another 10%, what passes for a middle class, will own and control perhaps 15%. Everybody else is below the poverty line.

    And that means that to effect any worthwhile changes in such communities, you must remake the entire community to think in terms of everything like traditional (i.e. not Modernist) whites, in accord with the heritage of white cultures.

    Liberalism does the exact opposite, as does what we know as Neoconservatism, or as I now say Anglo-Zionist imperialism, which is merely WASP imperialism admitting that its full partner has always been Jews who now own it as bankers. Bot are virulently anti Christendom, even anti-faint legacy of Christendom, which means each is at its core heart anti-white heritage.

    Liberals opposing any specifics of Anglo-Zionist imperialism are actually working for what they hate in that specific, because Liberals are also anti-white and anti-Christendom.

  51. I understand that The Unz Review seeks to present a variety of opinions. That said, I was appalled to see this garbage. I have spent more than thirty years in Latin America (including two in Venezuela). The entire thrust of this moron’s article is based on falsehood. He obviously knows nothing about Latin America. As a number of commenters have correctly pointed out, the issue here is IQ. Whites have a much higher IQ than Africans or Indians (on average) and, naturally, they dominate the Latin American societies. To be sure, there are highly intelligent mestizos, Indians, and blacks, but they are the exception and not the rule. The rule is, the more white blood, the higher the IQ. Most mestizo Latins are decent folk, but raise the amount of Indian or, God forbid, African blood too much and they turn into something far less appealing.
    In the case of Venezuela in particular, the Venezuelan lower class, which this author is so quick to praise, consists of the worst racial sludge in the continent. They are not just poor. They are generally stupid, violent, resentful, dishonest and lazy. Literally human garbage. I defy anybody who knows Venezuela to deny it and if they do I urge them to walk through one of the poor barrios. These people (and I use the word cautiously) are useless mouths, capable of nothing. It is enough to see the faces of most of the men around Maduro to see what kind of thugs and beasts they are. Venezuela is turning into Haiti and we should just ignore it.
    Re the largely white Venezuelan middle and upper class, they are also among the most unpleasant people in Latin America. Greedy, uncultured, totally corrupt, they have had to develop in this fashion to keep a lid on the seething masses of semi-humans they have to deal with. There is a reason death squads developed in these countries. In closing, let me at least admit that the middle and upper class Venezuelan woman are smoking hot. Watch out, though! If they get their claws in you they will peel you like a banana and leave you in your shorts in the middle of the street.

    Yes, there is an elite, more European class that was running things. This was based on IQ. Chavez originally kicked out European companies and the elite Venezuelans. His oil production went to crap and never came back. He was forced to bring back the Euro/American service companies just to maintain production, but the “elite” hi IQ Vens never came back, because they had a high enough IQ to read the tea leaves.

    Another point, the price of oil was around $8/bbl. right before Chavez. He ruled when oil was 10 times higher. However he blew all of the money on socialism and his oil fields got neglected. Venezuela sits on untouched elephant fields and insanely huge gas fields, but can’t develop them. Because the country is now run by idiots.

    Last story, when Chavez nationalized the upgraders in Jose, he had a huge problem. The evil Europeans and Americans were paying THREE TIMES the wage rate over PdVsa. He cut their wages.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2009/nov/18/africans-apologise-slave-trade
    “African chiefs were the ones waging war on each other and capturing their own people and selling them. If anyone should apologise it should be the African chiefs. We still have those traitors here even today.”

    Name a poor latin American country, bolivia, Hatii, venezuela and it will probably be run by non whites. The better latin american countries are run by a white elite:uruguay, argentina, mexico, Brazil, chile Costa rica.

    Your argument isn’t very convincing. All the richer countries in South America are in the South of the continent and maybe this plays a role. Maybe other countries haven’t been doing so well because they have a substantial part of the population which came as slaves without rights or which were indigenous whose communities were destroyed by colonization. In Chine only about 9% of the population has an indigenous background. As far as I know, Bolivia seems to be doing well under a president who belongs to the indigenous population. Venezuela wasn’t doing well before Chavez. So, things aren’t so clear as we might think. Maybe if you read articles like this you would change your mind:

    My comment has nothing to do with the African part of the slave trade, but with the economic role that black slaves played in Latin America. Who worked in the plantages earning the income of the white owners? Who worked in their homes doing all domestic work? Slaves from Africa.

    The US refused to recognize Haiti’s government until 1862, even though it had gained independence from France in 1804.

    unbelievable!

    what racists!

    And this is doubly troubling because it was none other than the Haitian revolutionaries who showed the whole world how to solve, once and for all, that most intractable of all problems: racism.

    The Haitian solved racism, and have not had a problem with white racism in their society since.

    We could all learn a lot by studying and emulating what they did. There really is only one solution to white racism [redundant], and the Haitians figured it out.

    In all seriousness, the idea that the myriad and complicated problems of Venezuela (and the entire Caribbean and basically the entire Third World), can all be reduced to white people’s congenital “racism” and the effects of slavery, is beyond idiotic.

    The first thing all people, (white, black and brown, etc..) should learn is that if you can’t afford to feed them, don’t have offspring, until you can. The main problem of poverty in the Third World, is not “white racism’, but a refusal to provide birth control and empowerment to those nation’s women. – (like that most racist/whitest place of all, Scandinavia – does) The corrupt governments and churches (run by scumbags of every hue), always want more and more and more people. More people, no matter how wretched, means more money and power for the rulers. So that is the main problem, and that goes for Venezuela, as much as it does for Haiti or the entire African continent, which is not run by white racists (no matter how many professionally cucked-white liberals fear under their beds). But once these impoverished people over-populate their nations into shitholes, then the white world are all expected to absorb these extremely prolific peoples, or David will call them ‘racists!’, for their sanity in not allowing them all to come in a create the same shitholes here/there. (Miami, LA, et al).

    https://news.gallup.com/poll/259103/new-high-say-immigration-important-problem.aspx

    Corruption (by all ethnicities), over-population and poverty are all huge problems in the Third World, and none of that is going to get solved as long as imbeciles continue to see ‘Bubba the Southern Redneck racist’ behind every problem.

    Or by ignoring the Zio-fiend destabilizing entire nations who don’t do (((their))) bidding enthusiastically enough. Was it white racists who bribed Ecuador to toss Assange under the bus, or the zio-scum running the Western world as their own privately-owned little fiefdom? (actually that’s a rhetorical question).

    And Elliot Abrams, is not a member of the white community in good standing, FYI.

    It’s a question of context. The US has always opposed the Castros, who were White elite. Along with Canada and the rest of NATO, they opposed Milosevic, who was pretty darned White, and are part to the scheme to turn Jeremy Corbyn into a racist White elitist. Remember, working class Whites in every “Western liberal democracy” are the lowest of the low, having all other’s interests put before theirs.

Trump wants dirty, costly-to-refine $200/bbl Venezuelan oil as much as the rest of the World, which is none at all. The hundred billion in US “reserve currency” that Venezuela had was spent by Maduro on imports, and the reserve dollar won’t be worth anything to US exports or to exporting US debt inflation in the Venezuelan dystopia. Maybe the Afro-Indo population should have stopped having 6 retarded economic ciphers and useless eaters per woman long before they put the moronic bus driver in charge of looting the economy on their behalf.

    Well, they’re doing the same in California, too. California pozz is all about maintaining control for the economic elite, and they’ll do anything to maintain it, including embracing racist “otherizing” language pitting one group against another. That’s where the culture of SJW pozz comes from: the elite promotes hate against normal people in order to divert socialist Hispanic anger away from them and their business interests. This has lead to a culture of self-hate among some normies in the process (thus, the term “White Supremacy” … which is almost never used, especially with the implied connotation the Left gives it, even on the most extreme right websites I’ve studied). Movie producers attack their audiences and films, video game publishers made garbage products their target audience of straight males would never buy.

    Consider California’s current leadership:

    Lt. governor Gavin Newsom and Governor Jerry Brown are both white economic elites in the same vein as Hillary Clinton. That’s who the elite want to stay in charge, not the people who might trash things SWPL types care about – state parks, taxes, wealthy private schools … Even the Left’s latest effort to get rid of LA’s black lady DA could be construed as an effort to replace a POC with a white guy more amenable to the pro-buisness lobby … and they are being very disingenuous about it with this crime business – sociopaths will say anything to get their way, after all. That’s where all the pozz is coming from: as the Hispanic population increases in California, the Leftists there get ever more extreme in “otherizing” traditional whites so as to draw off ire from demographics who might wonder why it’s a bad idea to impose diversity requirements on Silicon Valley hiring, or a bad idea to raise taxes on the rich, or a good idea to let Malibu stay overwhelmingly white or the Bay Area remain a playground for the rich.

    It’s all a game of placation. Example: California’s latest proposal to give health insurance to illegals under age 26. They don’t care, though. It’s just another “otherizing” proposal because they think some whites elsewhere will complain about it – great opportunity to pit Hispanic group angst against someone else. It’s not that the economic Left are more virtuous than the rest of the country (polls reveal the Left increasingly supports illegal wars around the world, especially in resource rich areas), it’s just that they don’t want you noticing their hypocrisy and rich lifestyle.

    And if you don’t think my theory is correct, at least partly, you’re welcome to answer why Bernie Sanders has received so much hate in the mainstream media – up to and including outright lies and distortions of fact. You might think, “He’s left wing, so what gives?” Here’s what gives: the people who rule you are sociopaths who don’t actually care much about any of the SJW policies they promote. For example, they don’t really care about “reparations” (currently in the news) … but promoting said policy as a one-time payment might very well keep the POC from just outright raising taxes on them, instead; it’s also great way to bring blacks to the polls in 2020 through “otherizing” whites. It’s all diversionary tactics to keep the gravy train rolling by keeping the public from doing to them what Chavez did to his greedy elite in Venezuela: take their money. I believe Steve Sailer has alluded to this in the past with his “High-Low Coalition” thesis.

    Probably the best thing republicans in California can do to strike back is to 1) drop support for corporate America; they are Leftist creeps anyway 2) encourage a moderate Hispanic to run as California governor in the democratic primary but with republican crossover support. Raise those taxes up, impose hiring requirements on Silicon Valley, build section 8 in Malibu, and abolish private schools — among many other possible proposals. It’s not like the middle class whites of California, a shrinking demographic, benefit from the current order anyway, so it’s not like they’ll be harmed by trying to change it. Let’s give the Left what they say they want publicly but in spades. Let them drown in their sanctimony.

    I’ve never understood this “economic warfare” argument. If the Venezuelans want to seize US oil assets in their territory…well that is their business. It is their sovereign nation and they can do what they want. It’s PhillipsConoco’s fault that they took that risk.

    Conversely, if the US then wants to prevent Venezuela from selling products in US markets, well…the US has every right to do that. If, in turn, the US will organize with other nations to sanction Venezuela…well, it has every right to do that as well.

    The US is a sovereign state with a network of allies that it can leverage politically. The fact that Venezuelans did not take that into account is their fault, akin to a teenager losing her allowance because she pissed off her parents.

    I’m not an expert, but it could be the case that not all sanctions and other actions like threats are legal. But it doesn’t matter, if you have the power to do that, you do what you want. The question is whether we should support things which are not justifiable in themselves.

    One of the problems is the world that you are establishing through your actions. It’s the world where you also have to live. Many countries resist sanctions like Russia and China or Iran and the US cannot do anything about that. The problem is that you are creating more hostility from strong countries, and that you are creating weak countries where it’s impossible to live, that you are creating a system where international right has no value, where more countries think that the only way to keep their independence is to have military power, a world where nature is destroyed everywhere simply because you want to engage in silly disputes, or still worse, embrace outright injustice.

    Whitey’s the Golden Goose.

    You explain here an aspect of how that’s a basic truth all must accept in self-interest:

    The only people to develop societies strikingly divergent from the above are whites, and those are the only societies that have built in checks against the worst tyranny.

    Blacks and browns, at least those who have more than subsistence economies, are just like the Chinese in the above regard. If a black tribe/nation is not manipulated by whites, it will become one in which some 10% will own and control 60 or 75 or perhaps even 80% of the wealth of the tribe/nation. Another 10%, what passes for a middle class, will own and control perhaps 15%. Everybody else is below the poverty line.

    And that means that to effect any worthwhile changes in such communities, you must remake the entire community to think in terms of everything like traditional (i.e. not Modernist) whites, in accord with the heritage of white cultures.

    And the only way to accomplish such a beneficial “remake…in thinking” is for the entire population to embrace the moral authority of the traditional Roman Catholic Church as founded by Incarnate God Jesus.

    Let’ review what you said and are now trying to dodge”, you said:

    “If whites are so good, why did they need to take millions of black Africans to build their homes in the Americas? You speaks of “constant warfare amongst Indians”. Didn’t the Europeans also have wars among themselves?”

    – So in fact it has everything to do with the fact that is was Africans who sold their own slaves so your “whites” could take them to the Americas.
    And then, as if very Euro-white household had slaves, you absurdly claim that slaves built the Americas.The fact is that only a very small percentage owned slaves. Your point is invalid.

    BTW, the vastly disproportionate number of slave owners in the US south were in fact Jews. Black scholar Dr. Tony Martin’s research has let us know who the prime sellers & owners of slaves really were, Jews.

    The inconvenient fact is that slavery was common throughout the world in every culture.

    – Yes Europeans had wars, but the issue is that American “Indians” (really Asian migrants) were not the peaceful at-one-with-nature people that the left falsely depicts. Quite the opposite.
    They had slavery & lot’s of it. They were quite brutal in the treatment of women, and they simply ravaged the environment with their slash & burn methods and devastation of wildlife, hence their ‘nomatic’ ways.

    I’m opposed to US intervention in Venezuela and everywhere else it pokes its nose into other peoples business, but the term “white supremacist” is a new term used to describe countries and societies created by Europeans which have been the nicest and most prosperous countries in the world to live in, that is until they became less white over the last few decades. Other than Asians and Jews, most other non-whites (blacks and indigenous North and South Americans) have not been able to successfully compete in these countries.

    Europe was the most advanced continent for at least the last 500 years, and much longer. It’s a fact but for stating this fact some people will call you a “white supremacist” If Americans can call their country the greatest in the world, I will assert my right to say Europe is the greatest, because history supports that claim and Europeans need to be proud of their accomplishments or they will be wiped out in the next 50 years. Their enemies are well on their way to accomplishing that goal.

    Up until about 30 years ago, Europe still had the nicest cities in the world, that was when Europe was still European, or “white” (although less so than 30 years before that). Some western European countries have now been completely transformed into multi-cultural countries. I’ve been to Germany several times and it’s hardly recognizable. The same I believe goes for Great Britain, France and the other western European countries.

    I believe a similar statement can be made about South America. It is not by accident that the three most prosperous counties in South America are South America’s three countries with the highest percentage Europeans making up their populations, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. But like the rest of South America, which were also successful, the percentage of Europeans making up the population has decreased. This is due to the fact that Europeans (whites) have less children than blacks and indigenous Americans and immigration has also been a factor. I read somewhere that in the late 19th century Argentina was one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Up thru WW II, under its leader Peron it was still a European derived country. I believe that is much less so today. In Brazil, South America’s biggest country, non-whites make up a very big part of the population and many of their cities are crime ridden. Again, it’s no accident that Brazil’s most prosperous city is Blumenau, a smaller city of German speaking Brazilians. No doubt, for stating this fact some would call me a “white supremacist”.

    The same sadly can be said about Africa. Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and South Africa were beautiful, prosperous countries with thriving white populations, and yes, blacks didn’t thrive and were kept separate, Now, no one thrives. South Africa’s beaches used to resemble southern California (of the 60’s and 70’s). Now it is a crime ridden and dangerous country with some of the most horrific crimes committed against whites.

So I wonder about your description of the whites “[stealing]” the land from people who are in substantial part of African descent. I guess there was plenty of “land” to feed and maintain the whole population 100 years ago and that the closest your remark gets to the truth is that those smart enough to develop the country above subsistence agriculture and fishing didn’t cut the burgeoning population of mestizos and blacks in on a big share of what they, the smart, had created.

    Hey Mr. Unz! Just a thought, I been reading or trying to find Anti-zionist books and articles from Soviet Russia or other communist countries. They seem to be hard to find, even in Russian language. Ever thought of adding some of these books to your archives? These two articles list many, but searching for them turns up nothing.

    http://fathomjournal.org/soviet-anti-zionism-and-contemporary-left-antisemitism/

    https://www.marxists.org/subject/jewish/lewis-soviet-jews.htm

    Some of the authors and titles:
    Trofim Kichko – Judaism without Embellishments – Judaism and Zionism, Judaism Unmasked and Judaism in its True Colours
    Yuri Kolesnikov – The Promised Land
    Yuri Ivanov – What Is Zionism?
    Yevgenii Yevseev – Fascism Under the Blue Star
    Lev Korneev – On the Course of Aggression and Fascism, The Class Essence of Zionism

    Seems these books have been banned from Amazon as well as the internet. Apparantly some of these authors wrote about having proof of the links between the Zionists and Nazis and even Zionist complicity in the mass murder of fellow Jews. Probably some intresting stuff in them? Apparantly Mahmoud Abbas the leader of Palestine/West Bank wrote one called The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism that talked about the links between Nazis and Zionist Jews and the holocaust as well, can’t seem to find that one in english either, think maybe Israel Shamir may have a copy he could upload?

    Anyhow, just a thought, might be some cool stuff to study, apparently these books drove American and Israeli Jews completely bonkers when they came out. I’d be interested to read them, I’m sure many of your other fans may as well. I know you probably don’t have a lot of spare time on your hands, but I thought with all your connections and being kinda Russian maybe you could find something easier than I could…

    Jews did not control the economy of Malaysia during the riots there. We’ve already established, years ago on another site now, that various regions have different market-dominant minorities.

    Without exception, the median IQ of this group is higher than that of the demographic majority. Always. So race could play in issue.

    These so-called market-dominant elites always have the same strategy. They arrive as bush peddlers, make money in business, align themselves with some political party and rarely intermarry with the locals. Jews, unlike Chinese in Malaysia, are more adept at media and PR. Chinese in SEA are little more than glorified shopkeepers.

    But even in other countries there are smaller market dominant elites who enrage locals. Like Koreans in the black ghetto of Los Angeles. Or Cubans in Miami.

    Because it is a distinction without a meaningful difference.

    Russia in 1917-1919 is all the evidence needed. The Russian Liberals were divided on whether to allow the ‘bad’ Leftists who called for mass slaughter (the Bolsheviks) to participate with them as they brought peace and true equality. And before the smartest of those Russian Liberals could assess that anything had changed, the Bolsheviks made them an offer they could not refuse: support us without any question, and torture and kill whom we tell you to torture or kill, or we will torture you and kill just as if you were a deplorable Monarchist or devout Orthodox or Catholic.

    That is the relationship between Liberals and the Left. When true conservatives are silenced, Liberals assume the world is theirs. And then the amoral and psychopathic Left places the guns to the temples of Liberals, delighting as much in forcing pacifist-leaning Liberals to torture and murder as they take in murdering Royals and Nobles and devoutly Orthodox and Catholic and middle class whites.

    How did those people get to amass the economic resources in the first place – Whites in Latin America or other colonies by brutal force, Jews in America by finance setups, Chinese in SouthEast Asia by shop-keeping, is another issue. Smartness might have played a role in the past, but not much in today’s CAPITALism.

    Both Britain and Argentina have reasonable arguments for possession of the Falklands, but seeing as Britain has had continuous possession of them for circa the last 175 years or so, that gives them more right than the Argentinians as far as I’m concerned. And, of course, a small British expatriate population for all that time as well.

    The Falkland Islands are several hundred miles from the South American coast – not a stone’s throw from Buenos Aires – lest people get the false notion that they are somehow within Argentina’s territorial water’s.

    Also, as a direct result of this conflict, the military dictatorship collapsed and civilian rule returned to Argentina.

    He also received a completely free and fair trial when sentenced to life imprisonment. Amnesty International refused to take up his case for that very reason.

    Whilst in prison, he gave the go-ahead for the Church Street bombing in Pretoria. Clearly a terrorist act.

    I say all this not because I’m anti Mandela. Whether pro or anti is not the issue. The fact of the matter is that we have to define terrorism and terrorists by their actions – and not their causes.

Which they did, and others joined in, all Europeans, plus the African slaves they brought with them.

    I had a perfunctory read of the Jewish complaints about the book:

    Trofim Kichko – Judaism without Embellishments

    and the critical outcry about its anti-semitism, supposedly in breach of Soviet laws. What I have extracted from the hullabaloo is the following:

    1. Jewish power was very active in mobilizing resources against any criticism of Jews/Judaism.
    2. They used international pressure groups to accuse USSR of being anti-semitic.
    3. Stalin was the bete-noire of Jewry.
    4. USSR protected religious practices.
    5. Criticism of any religion was permitted.

    Those are the salient features I got from the comments/complaints, namely that the Jewish Lobby was very powerful outside the USSR while the official Soviet response was a polite rebuke.

    NUS patriots should take notice that in 1962 in the USSR, was published a book with vile caricatures of Jews without any fuss, nobody raised an eyebrow. International Jewry went up in arms, put diplomatic pressure and whatnots to get the book and author condemned and the official communist response was: Get lost! So much for Judeo-Bolshevism!

    I specifically said that the early church was not the Church of Rome. The early church was in Jerusalem and spread out from there. Rome being just one of the areas it spread to. Hardly unusual as Rome was the seat of the Empire.

    However one wants to read the New Testament, it is clear that the churches that were founded, whilst interdependent of each other, also exercised a certain degree of autonomy as well.

    The Church of Rome declared itself, over a period of several centuries, to be Lord and Master over all Christendom.

    From there, more and more erroneous doctrine crept in over the succeeding centuries.

    The Church of Rome became an institution to itself.

    The Reformation was an attempt to get back to the more sound doctrines of the New Testament. That the Reformers were not perfect men I’m well aware of.

    Had the Church of Rome not been so arrogant, doubling down in it’s error and hubris, very possibly no Reformation would have been needed.

    Comparing the Reformers to Gnostics, Arians, JW’s etc. is just nonsense.

    The Reformers, and the Reformed churches, accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior – fully man and fully God. By contrast the Gnostics, Arian’s, JW’s etc. do not.

    Indeed, the only reason I can accept the Church of Rome as being a Christian church is that it teaches these basic fundamentals of the Christian faith. However, it has many erroneous teachings and doctrinal positions that I cannot accept.

    I am not anti Church of Rome as I’ve said to you before. I attended an Alpha course at a RC church several years ago. The folks there, mostly Catholic for obvious reasons, were clearly Christians. The Alpha course was started by an Anglican but has been embraced by much of genuine Christendom, including the RC church.

    I don’t like too much narrowness when it comes to different branches of Christianity. This is also true of Protestants that completely reject the Church of Rome out of hand, as well.

    The main reason why a White elite are propped up by an anti-White government is simple. They agree to rape the country to benefit foreigners or the US will promote a coup using the much greater numbers of non-Whites against them. They being a small minority are more vulnerable to foreign intrigues.

    The capability of the US to absorb the cartels and revolutionaries is going to reach saturation point sooner or later. Effective administration gets pretty hard when you have extremely violent and well funded criminal outfits growing in your country. The drug money corrupts all levels of society and throw in all different ethnic and racial groups into the mix and the result won’t be much fun.

    Ok, but why not yourself, Mr. Pear?

    did you notice the Israeli daily mentioned at the beginning of the video?

    Israel Hayom. It is the mouthpiece of a rabid, war mongering Zionist; one Sheldon Adelson.

    The same rabid Zionist whose minions in the DC capital are all very busy foisting serial wars upon defenseless nations far and sundry, and all in obvious and criminal schemes to bolster the Jewish supremacist, Zionist ‘state’ of Israel.

    Any moron with a shred of curiousity by now sees all of that as brutally obvious. So it’s no shock why Trump sent uber-Zionist neocon Elliot Abrams down there to agitate for more regime change.

    Good for Israel, it’z. Duh.

    But what I find curious, is how such knowledge of state-sponsored treachery and malevolence might dovetail with a liberal-progressive’s sensibilities.

    For a liberal-progressive, you must take your narrative and opinions from the NYT, right?

    And we all know the NYT is as much a Jewish supremacist mouthpiece, as is Sheldon’s daily in Israel. Duh.

    So what is a good liberal to do?

    Here we have Zionists agitating to take over an impoverished, Third World, brown people’s nation, and steal their oil, with a quisling running cover for the operation.

    And no doubt impose harsh measures on any who complain. Remember, it was the Mossad and their stooges in the CIA that ran SAVAK in Iran, once the democratically elected president was removed in a putsch. So I’m sure they’d have no problem teaching any recalcitrant Venezuelans how to toe the line, eh?

    Now, the obvious way for a liberal to spin all of this in his ‘cognitive dissonance’, (a liberal’s most important and constant companion), is to simply blame all of it on redneck, “white nationalists, or “supremacists”, who voted for Trump and hate all immigrants and POC (and LGBTs and ponies and puppies and every thing nice).

    Because that is their default paradigm. That is how their brains have been trained to function since they walked though those university lecture hall doors.

    But now what?! Now we have Jews! (those most put-upon gallant and violin-playing victims of white supremacists -[like my university professors!]- that ever lived or were turned to soap in ovens and gas chambers!!) And now somehow I, (the liberal-progressive in good standing), am supposed to unravel the indoctrination of a university “education’ and a lifetime of Talmudvision watching relentless indoctrination – and see A Jewish supremacist behind the Eternal War curtain?!!

    Oh my, but the cogs of cognitive dissonance must be spinning in overdrive.

    You don’t define “right” and “left” yourself. How were our (until recently) elevated corporate tax rates “right-wing” compared to Scandinavia’s, a third lower? Or Ireland’s and Canada’s, two countries that enticed major U.S. corporations to redomicile.

    How is the IRS practice of taxing Americans everywhere in the world far to the right of every other country’s just letting their people go?

    Our tax-supported stadia?

    Municipal fire departments vs Scandinavia’s Falck?

    Means-testing of public benefits? Richard Branson can use the NHS with no charge.

    The question came up on Quora if there was any issue in which the British were to the right of Americans. A Brit quickly replied with immigration, giving examples. Eg, vans with bullhorns roaming the alleys to frighten illegals. Trump is a bleeding-heart in comparison.

    I’ve given contrary examples. You seem to think these are reactionary as well, without explaining why.

    OK, it was a tongue-in-cheek reply; but I don’t see the point of hair-splitting expose’ to restate the obvious. Wanted me to explain the concept of “terra nulis” to the commenters here? That would be an unwanted intrusion into the chest-thumping ritual of white supremacy and adoration for their capitalist cum-commie Jewish master partners, whatever that means.

    Subtle yet VERY POWERFUL point – the Arabic world originated Arab Islam if the Jews didn’t do it for them and they are semites like the Jews with all the violent inclinations.

    The current intense focus on Iran reveals the Persian ethnicity to be very different and so much more civilized than the Arab ethnicity. The Persians are not susceptible to Jew manipulation to the degree the Arabs, and sadly, the Americans, are.

    Persians refuse to be Jew golem. Who else can so brag?

    So, yes, “Israel and the Arabic world”, not Israel and the Islamic world.

    “Elevated” until recently? The U.S. corporate tax rate has been declining gradually since 1950. The Scandinavian model is social democracy, not socialism. There is a difference but like most Americans you wouldn’t know, which is also why someone like Sanders (also a center-rightist) is able to sell himself as a radical when his positions are basically New Deal liberalism.

    As it isn’t about the Holocaust maybe you are not so well fortified by revisionist sources. Can you answer the following mythbusting on e.g. proportion of southerners who owned slaves?

    I wonder what you might explain about terra nullius since you spell it “terra nulis”. Actually it often does need explaining to those who suppose it to mean a denial that Australia was inhabited. It was in fact a well established rule (Common Law I think) that denied the title of people to land which was terra nullius – meaning approx. the land of no one – because no one had done anything to show possession of the land as understood by people from agricultural societies. Curiously, a worthy lot of High Court judges took the opportunity to overthrow the rule in a late 20th century case which actually had nothing to do with Aborigines or their claims but with Torres Strait islanders who had defined vegetable gardens.

    I know the difference between socialism and social democracy– I’ve lived in two Scandinavian countries, and have been telling fellow Americans how capitalist they are for 35 years now.

    Sanders made a fool of himself, and our pretend-right made the most of it. Who can blame them? Most of his young (and almost all white) followers went to public schools. Why would you expect them to know anything?

    America has stupid and evil abortion policies, way laxer than any country in Europe. We’re not even allowed to vote on them! Sperm “donation” is legal and unregulated. Surrogacy, a form of prostitution, is legal in nearly every state.

    Many of us using this site would be happy to trade Donald Trump for a Viktor Orbán or Jörg Haider. Or even some of the traditional laws the Irish are blithely tossing aside.

    New Deal “liberalism” outlawed the possession of gold. That’s pretty extreme. Prohibition– another and progressive idea– didn’t end in 1933, it merely switched targets.

    Europe, Asia, and Latin America have real rightists. America doesn’t.

    Maybe what the west considers civilization is the ability to mass murder insane number of people as fast as possible rather than human progress or society.

    But diversity is our strength!

    1.) It’s curious that your charts end at 2012, when Venezuela experienced a large rise in inflation and shortages in 2013.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Venezuelan_protests
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2013-11-07/venezuela-inflation-hits-16-year-high-as-shortages-rise

    Now, was this due to Chavez/Maduro’s policies catching up with them or Western economic warfare? I don’t know. But is it so hard to believe that an ambitious government intent on providing a slew of generous social programs might have engaged in some fiscal profligacy? Regardless, the current problems are likely a result of both internal corruption and foreign intervention. Hard to say which is the more responsible.

    2.) As for the racial aspect, it would probably be ideal at some point for the white minorities in these Latin American countries to either secede and form mini-states or relocate to some of the countries with higher white percentages like Chile, Argentina, southern Brazil, or Uruguay. Maybe even Spain. If they seceded, oil rights would have to be proportionally divided. If the mixed and indigenous populations don’t want to be ruled by whites, then as a white nationalist, I don’t think should have to be. But they may find that they are not as adept at running their countries.

    3.) White minority rule in Latin America has been compared to Jewish minority rule over white countries. This is an unfair comparison because the Jewish elite are actively trying to ethnically cleanse whites. I don’t really see anything similar happening in Latin America.

    4.) Venezuela and Iran have a cozy relationship, and I wonder how much of this is about isolating Iran. There are a lot of neocons involved in the Venezuela matter. Supposedly, Venezuela has been funding Hamas, Hezbollah, and other pro-Palestinian groups. Who knows if it’s true, but this would certainly raise the ire of Israel.

    I’m not disputing that the original church’s foundation was a theologically sound one – and embodied the gospel truth of Jesus Christ. That, as already pointed out, was not the Church of Rome.

    But don’t cite the subsequent heresies and heretics.

    I shall certainly not do that. Under no circumstances will I mention the heretical and wicked popes who were dime a dozen and “ruled” over Christendom for many centuries. Nor shall I mention all their dreadful heresies.

    The Reformers are worth mentioning on the other hand. They, despite danger and difficulty, succeeded in restoring much sorely needed sound doctrine and truth to the Christian church. Of course, they were not perfect in their endeavors, and like all men were flawed, but still they achieved a great deal.

    And even though the Church of Rome would possibly deny it, the Reformation had a good influence on the former in the long run.

    Certainly, the Church of Rome is a better institution today than it was 500 years ago.

    LOL… Like the US, Venezuela import most of what they need. The crucial difference is that the US can print Dollar to pay, Venezuela must pay with oil.

    I’m not sure this proves Americans are more “apt at running their country”, since the US is much deeper in debt than Venezuela.

    I don’t agree with the moron who wrote this article, but when I read some of the comments I have to admit the general IQ of the posters is on a constant downward spiral with every generation.
    Do you know Jeff Bezos is of Spanish descent?

    You’all are so fucking stupid the only thing you can think about is fucking our women while babies and chronic patients are dying in Venezuelan hospitals right this minute.

    Maybe if you´ve read a bit you would know Argentina was destroyed by a nazi whitey named Juan Domingo Perón. (Evita’s husband). So much for the white myth in the cono sur.
    Chile’s Allende was also white and a commie that was wiped out by another whitey by the name of Augusto Pinochet, as the stupid Bachelet is now. And they are pretty much shit holes too. They´ve always been in the last 70 years. The stupid Chávez gave away many billions of our oil revenue in order to rescue the Argentinians from their self made Corralito.

    British & French mercenaries helped Simon Bolivar get rid of the Spaniards in Venezuela in the 19th century, when Spain was trying to create a strong Spanish Commonwealth around the world with their colonies (Cadiz Constitution).
    Anglosaxons & Frenchies poisoned the well as they usually do when they loose whatever they cannot keep.
    Pure black legend believers & ignorant farts.

    Jeff Bezos was adopted by his mother’s second husband, who was of Spanish descent. His real last name is Jorgenson and his mother is of English heritage. Doesn’t mean there hasn’t been smart and successful Spaniards, just that Jeff isn’t one of them.

    Argentina and Chile seem to be doing fairly well. At least, it could be worse.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Happiness_Report#2019_World_Happiness_Report

    As has been the case for many throughout history, they (Argentina especially) have struggled to maintain sound monetary policy. Also, Peron was sabotaged by the U.S. and Great Britain to a certain extent by not allowing Argentina to convert their pounds into dollars in order to buy American capital goods. Of course, he did make mistakes of his own. However, despite these mistakes, he managed to industrialize the country and move Argentina away from being a largely agrarian based economy dependent on Britain. It should also be noted that Argentina had some major economic issues long before Peron.

    If I was a rich billionaire I would produce a movie and cast Elliot Abrams as the Devil. This would benefit the world in many ways. He looks like one and just needs horns, a tail and a red robe. He’s more venal and evil than the devil himself and if offered enough money, the dirty zionist will accept. It will keep him away from doing mischief.

    It will also make hiring a director superfluous as he’s a natural.

    Somebody please start a crowd funding site for this.
