Warsaw, Poland is not a fun place to visit in darkest February, but that is where the US just staged an anti-Iranian jamboree of 60 client states that brought derision and scorn from Europeans and much of the Mideast.

The point of this cynical exercise was to lay the diplomatic groundwork for an anti-Iranian coalition to act as a fig-leaf for an upcoming attack on Iran planned by President Donald Trump and his close ally, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu.

The real question is who is calling the shots in bleak Warsaw, Trump or Bibi Netanyahu? It seems to many that the Israeli tail is again wagging the American dog.

This is thanks to the power of America’s born-again evangelicals, hoodwinked into believing that a Greater Israel is somehow a key part of the Second Coming of Christ.

A Fox News poll this week finds that a quarter of these credulous folks believe that God actually summoned Donald Trump to become president. This may even be more than the number of Americans who believe that Elvis is still alive. More proof that the Republicans have pretty much become a theological party.

The three horseman of the hard right Republican Apocalypse, Vice president Mike Pence, Insecurity advisor John Bolton, and State Secretary Mike Pompeo (who reportedly keeps an open bible on his desk) joined their voices to the Warsaw jamboree to excoriate Iran for being a ‘sponsor of terrorism,’ and a danger to world peace and stability.

The never understated Bibi Netanyahu, whose nation has at least 100 nuclear weapons, claimed Iran, which has no nukes and feeble armed forces, was planning a ‘second Holocaust’ for Israel.

An over-excited Netanyahu even tweeted that the Warsaw meeting was preparing for `war with Iran.’ He was forced to retract his tweet. But he did get to sit next to the delegate from war-torn Yemen, a stooge put into place by the Saudis and Emiratis whose aggression against Yemen has so far cost hundreds of thousands of lives, mass starvation and epidemics.

This week a newly energized US House of Representatives voted for an end to their nation’s support for the Saudi-led war in the Mideast’s poorest nation. The Senate, still controlled by Republican Crusaders, will be likely to vote down the sensible House proposal.

Another participant at Warsaw was the largest Arab nation, Egypt. This nation just extended the rule of its military dictator, Field Marshall al-Sisi, to 2034. It was Sisi, backed by Saudi money, who overthrew Egypt’s first democratic government in history, killing and jailing thousands.

In a slap in the face to Washington, Europe’s leaders, France, Germany and the European Union government, either refused to attend the Warsaw hate-fest against Iran or sent low-level paper-passers.

ORDER IT NOW

Ironically, while Trump’s people were fulminating against Iranian ‘terrorism,’ it was Iran that was the victim of terrorist attacks. An attack from a Pakistan-based Sunni Jaish al-Adl extremist group linked to the CIA killed 27 soldiers and wounded a similar number. Iran has been the target of constant attacks since its 1979 revolution by groups linked to the US, and from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other US regional vassals.

Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is even a long-term lobbyist for the hyper-violent Marxist Iranian extremist group, the MEK which was even branded a ‘terrorist group’ by the US government.

The Warsaw jamboree was also supposed to set the stage for Trump’s much ballyhooed Mideast ‘peace’ plan. Run by son-in-law Jared Kushner, the full plan is expected to be released in April, right after Israeli elections. It will likely consist of trying to buy off Palestinian land claims with US taxpayer money and some cash from the Saudis. America’s Arab client states in the region will all provide polite applause.

The Warsaw jamboree produced no evident results and left the US even more isolated than before. Europe is moving ahead with a financial mechanism to permit trade with Iran that circumvents US sanctions. US intelligence itself reports that Iran is not working in nuclear weapons. Europe wants to trade with Iran.

America’s anti-Iran campaign has just suffered another blow. This after Washington badly damaged relations with China and Canada over the arrest of the daughter in Vancouver of the founder of Huawei over charges it traded with Iran. Most non-Americans view this as an outrage. But the later-day Crusaders around Trump don’t seem to care that they are damaging America’s reputation and making a mess of its foreign policy.

    Albert Einstein, the famous Jewish scientist once said: “ Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result ”, and yet that’s exactly what the American Zionist elites are doing to the US foreign policy:

    In the 1920’s, the elite Jews of Germany had similar influence over the Weimar government – interfering in German foreign policy to the extent that had led to the rise of Hitler, the WW2, and the Holocaust.

    Today, the political class in America is comparable to the 1920’s Weimar republic, where the German Jews were running the republic by proxy for their own tribal interests; like “the Israeli tail that’s wagging the American dog”; as such, should the Jewish and Zionist elites of America expect similar fate ? let’s hope not; we are certainly better than that.

    Yet, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity, or rather “Tribal Insanity” in this case !

  2. The three horseman of the hard right Republican Apocalypse…Pence…Bolton…Pompeo

    The three stooges cannot possibly be ‘hard right’. The hard right is strongly protective of the white race and Western civilization and, as a consequence, would not lift a finger to help either Israel or the diaspora; read Kevin MacDonald’s The Culture of Critique to discover why.

    The Bible on Pompeo’s desk is probably the ludicrous Scofield Bible, which fills the heads of the gullible with drivel like: ‘For a nation to commit the sin of anti-Semitism brings inevitable judgement.’

    You lose half of your audience when you associate the actions of the neocons with Christianity. It’s just one of those realities that there’s no getting away from.

    But good luck with it, anyway.

    The United States is currently Weimar Germany? Wouldn’t that make Trump the American equivalent of Hitler?

    Yeeeah you might want to rethink your comparison a little.

    Hitler dissolved the Weimar Republic in 1933; he wasn’t in power yet in 1920’s. Hitler’s seizure of power allowed governing by decree without legislative participation which effectively ended the Weimar Republic and began the Nazi era in 1933.

    So, 1/4 of some unknown number of people believe that everything is part of God’s plan?

    The horror…the horror!

    There are thousands of Jews who, as we speak, are following some other Jew around, calling him Messiah.

    More important than either group, of course, is the coterie of Jewish oligarchs who pour billions into Israel advocacy and Zionist causes.

    The three horseman of the hard right Republican Apocalypse, Vice president Mike Pence, Insecurity advisor John Bolton, and State Secretary Mike Pompeo (who reportedly keeps an open bible on his desk) joined their voices to the Warsaw jamboree to excoriate Iran for being a ‘sponsor of terrorism,’ and a danger to world peace and stability.

    Mike Pence doesn’t strike me as “hard right.” Perhaps because nobody who is “hard right” is allowed into the establishment.

    John Bolton is a neocon stooge, not “hard right.” “Invade the World, Invite the World” is the neocon’s design, not the “hard right’s.”

    Mike Pompeo is some tea party Heritage foundation stooge, he’s hardly “hard right.”

  9. at this point it’s evident that

    Trump, after betraying the Whites who voted for him on almost every issue,

    will attempt a Zionist false flag and then try to Zio-warmonger himself

    into a second term. This will, however, require fine timing – beginning the attack on Iran

    at the right moment – not too far in advance of the election and not too close –

    and another demoncrat joke as an opponent.

    we’ll see if the con artist-in-chief gets away with it.

  10. ATBOTL says:

    Poland allows itself to be used for the Israeli agenda, against its own interests, and Israeli repays it thus:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/poland-may-cancel-visit-to-israel-amid-new-holocaust-spat/2019/02/18/ff96437e-335c-11e9-8375-e3dcf6b68558_story.html?utm_term=.0dd96501cb97

    Hopefully the Visegrad group as a whole pulls back from Trump over this.

  11. @Alistair

    “This is thanks to the power of America’s born-again evangelicals,”

    Once again, Jewish gatekeepers selling the idea that the power does not reside with Jews but with evangelicals.

  12. What I learned from this is that reading Mr. Margolis is a waste of time; why is he on UNZ?

  13. @Alistair

    Hitler “seized” power by garnering well over 80% of the popular vote from German citizens who were fed-up with Jews running their country. Americans could never be so fortunate.

  17. “The point of this cynical exercise was to lay the diplomatic groundwork for an anti-Iranian coalition to act as a fig-leaf for an upcoming attack on Iran planned by President Donald Trump and his close ally, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu.”

    Such a war would probably directly and/or indirectly finish off what’s left of “America”; economically, politically, morally and perhaps physically (if it escalates to a world war). But…but…but…orange clown’s a good man, so many people keep telling me; even the senile sage, Paul Craig Roberts, is still claiming that orange clown’s a good man who really, really, really wants “peace,” despite the evil machinations of his own treacherous body, for example, which works tirelessly (and apparently successfully) to undermine his every good intention.

    “The real question is who is calling the shots in bleak Warsaw, Trump or Bibi Netanyahu?”

    And those are our only two choices for some reason? Perhaps a collective of some kind is “calling the shots”?

    “It seems to many that the Israeli tail is again wagging the American dog.”

    And it also seems to many (especially those who know something about history) that some maleficent entity was “wagging the American dog” even before there was an “Israel.”

    “This is thanks to the power of America’s born-again evangelicals, hoodwinked into believing that a Greater Israel is somehow a key part of the Second Coming of Christ.”

    Well these pathetic reprobates aren’t helping things, that’s for sure, but if they’ve been “hoodwinked” there must be a “hoodwinker,” and who or what could that be?

    “A Fox News poll this week finds that a quarter of these credulous folks believe that God actually summoned Donald Trump to become president.”

    The prophets had these foolish people pegged: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

    “This may even be more than the number of Americans who believe that Elvis is still alive. More proof that the Republicans have pretty much become a theological party.”

    Apparently a Satanic theological party.

  18. @druid55

    I believe you’ve misunderstood him.

  19. Alistair says:
    @Carroll Price

    America must root out “Tribal Nepotism” and takes the country back.

  20. @Alistair

    I wholeheartedly agree with you, Alistair. You correctly said the political class in the US is comparable to the 1920’s Weimar Republic, where German Jews were running the republic by proxy for their own tribal interests – like “the Israeli tail that’s wagging the American dog”; as such, should the Jewish and
    Zionist elites of America expect a similar fate? I hope not we’re certainly better than that.

    Albert Einstein once said, and he was right: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”; and that’s what the American Zionist elites are doing to our foreign policy. I couldn’t put it any better and agree with you more.

    Brilliantly said.

  21. Pontius says:
    @Alistair

    The biggest mistake these people are making is in thinking the American people will somehow be more forgiving than the Germans.

  22. Pontius says:

    Well, apparently, some bigshot rabbi claims the messiah will return before the Israeli elections, so someone is going to be quite disappointed very soon.

  23. @Johnny Rottenborough

    ..and also Agree.

    99.9999% of Americans are unable to make any distinctions between ‘hard right’, ‘alt-right’, ‘Republicans’, and Nazi larpers. They all go into one amorphous lump. Of course, this is exactly what the NPC echo chamber intended all along.

    Meanwhile, Christian churches have been compromised to the point where they now worship a saccharine lackey called Judeo-Christ, who does the bidding of the Almighty State from whence all morality flows. One of the tells: these so-called Christians are more concerned about building the 3rd Temple than they are about their own little froggy bottoms getting slowly boiled by the leftist theocratic state we now live in.

    Leftism is indeed a secular religion. The only thing that will save Western Civilization now is righteous warfare by a revitalized Church Militant. Time for Christianity to grow a pair, instead of sitting on its ass waiting for the Rapture.
