I have just finished reading William Shirer’s Berlin Diary. (This may not fascinate you, but I am coming to something.) I first encountered it in high school. It is of course Shirer’s account as a correspondent in Germany of the rise of the Nazis. Most of it is well known to the educated. The Nazis, who had control over the domestic press, convinced the German population that the Poles were threatening Germany, as plausible as Guatemala threatening the United States. The Poles were said to be committing atrocities against Germans.

Then the Reich, with no justification whatever, having absolute air superiority, attacked Poland, bombing undefended cities and killing huge numbers of people. It was a German pattern several times repeated. Many reporters told of the smell of rotting bodies, of refugees dying of hunger and thirst. Today the Reich is endlessly remembered as a paragon of evil. It was.

How did Nazi Germany differ from the United States today? There is the same lying. Washington insisted that Iraq was about to get nuclear weapons, biological agents, that it had poisonous gas. None of this was true. The government, unimpeded by the media, persuaded over half of the American population that Iraq was responsible for Nine-Eleven. Now it says that Iran works to get nuclear weapons, and of course that the Russians are coming. The American press, informally but strictly controlled, carefully doesn’t challenge any of this.

Having prepped the American public as the Nazis prepped theirs, Washington unleashed a savage attack against Iraq, deliberately destroying infrastructure, leaving the country without power or purified water. The slaughter was godawful. But, said America, the war was to rid the Iraqi people of an evil dictator, to bring them democracy, freedom, and human rights. (The oil was entirely incidental. The oil is always incidental.)

Fallujah, Iraq, after the American military brought it democracy, human rights, and freedom.

Washington never sleeps in its campaigns to improve the lives of people whose most fervent wish is that America stop improving their lives. To give the Afghans democracy, human rights, and American values, the US has for eighteen years been bombing, bombing, bombing a largely illiterate population in a nation where America has no business. It is a coward’s war with warplanes butchering peasants who have no defenses. The pilots and drone operators who do this deserve contempt, as does the country that sends them. How many more years? For what purpose? And how were the German Nazis different?

The German Gestapo perpetrated sickening torture in hidden basements. America does the same, mainltaining torture prisons around the world. In these, men, and no doubt women, are hung by their wrists for days, naked in very cold rooms, kept awake and periodically beaten (exactly as described by survivors of Soviet torture. Nazis, whether American, Russian, or German, are Nazis.)

Photos of Iraqis at the American torture operation at Abu Ghraib showed prisoners, almost naked, lying in pools of blood. Tell me, please, how this differs from what was done by the Reich? (The bloodier photos are no longer online. Many that remain seem to have been edited.)

Abu Ghraib. A happy American girl soldier. Note rubber gloves. The US military used many female soldiers for this duty. They apparently were kinky, as they seemed to get a kick out of it. A female general ran the operation.

Gina Haspel, head of the CIA, is a sadist who tortured Moslem prisoners, reminiscent of Ilse Koch, the notorious Nazi torturess, who also worked in prisons. It is easy to find victims there, I suppose.

An Abu Ghraib pic apparently no longer online. I found it on an ancient memory stick. Are we having fun yet?

President Trump has just pardoned several American war criminals, saying he wanted to give US soldiers the “confidence to fight.” This amounts to blanket permission to commit atrocities. A purpose of military training being to extirpate human decency and mercifulness, the obscene barbarism is not surprising. Atrocities are what soldiers do, and will do as long as the wars go on, being furiously denied by the government. (When I covered Force Recon, the Marine Corps Special Forces, the motto on the wall was “Crush Their Skulls and Eat Their Faces.”)

Perhaps the best known example of implied approval was Nixon’s pardon of Lt. Calley, who ordered the murder of Vietnamese villagers, for which he received three years of house arrest.

The Germans wanted empire, lebensraum, and resources, in particular oil. Americans want empire and oil, control of which allows control of the world They go about getting them by invasion and intimidation. Thus America wants to bring democracy and human rights to Iraq, Iran, Venezuela, and Nigeria, which have lots of oil, while it has occupation troops in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and elsewhere in the Mideast. What part of Syria is Trump occupying? Surprise, surprise! The part with the oil. Oil for the Americans, land for the Germans.

As Shirer points out, the German public was not enthusiastic about the war, at least not through 1940, as neither is the American public today. Neither public showed any concern about the hideousness its government inflicted around the world. What is the difference?

The parallels with the Reich are not complete. Washington does not essay genocide against Jews or blacks or any other internal population, being content with killing whoever its bombs fall upon. Trump cannot reasonably be likened to Hitler. He lacks the vision, the backbone, and apparently the viciousness. Hitler was a very smart, very evil man who knew exactly what he was doing, at least politically. This cannot be said of Trump. However, Hitler was, and Trump is, surrounded by freak-show curiosities of great bellicosity. Adolf had Goering, Goebbels, Himler, Rheinhardt Heydrich, Julius Streicher, Eichman. Trump has John Bolton, as amoral and pathologically aggressive as any in the Fuehrer’s entourage, or under a log. Pompeo, a bloated toad of a man, bears an uncanny resemblance to Goering. Both he and Pence are Christian heretics, Evangelicals, who believe they are connected to God on broadband. O’Brien sounds like Bolton. All want war with Iran and perhaps with China and Russia. Sieg heil, and run like hell.

My Lai, after Lt. Calley of the SS Totenkopf Div…excuse me, the Americal Division, I meant to say, brought human rights, freedom, and the American way.
My Lai, after Lt. Calley of the SS Totenkopf Div…excuse me, the Americal Division, I meant to say, brought human rights, freedom, and the American way.

Wikipedia: “Between 347 and 504 unarmed people were killed by U.S. Army soldiers …Victims included men, women, children, and infants. Some of the women were gang-raped and their bodies mutilated as were children as young as 12.”)

For this Calley got three years house arrest, less than the sentence for a bag of methamphetamine, until pardoned by Nixon. Many Americans said, and many still say, that he should not have been punished at all, that we needed to take the gloves off, let the troops fight. Again, this is what Trump said.

The German Nazis worshiped Blood and Soil, the land of Germany and the Teutonic race, which they believed to be genetically superior to all others. Americans can’t easily worship race. Instead they think themselves Exceptional, Indispensable, a Shining City on a Hill, the greatest civilization the world has known. Same narcissism and arrogance, slightly different foundation.

Nazi Germany was, like Nazi America, intensely militaristic. The US has hundreds of bases around the world (China has one overseas base, in Djibouti), spends appallingly on the military despite the lack of a credible military enemy. It currently buys new missile submarines (the Columbia class), aircraft carriers (the Ford class), intercontinental nuclear bombers (the B21), and fighter planes (the F-35).

Nazi Germany attacked Poland, Norway, Belgium, France, Russia, America, and England. America? Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Syria, supports a brutal proxy war against Yemen (Yemen is a grave threat to America), threatens Venezuela, China, and Iran with attack, embargoes Cuba. These are recent. Going back a bit, we have Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Yugoslavia, the intervention in Panama, on and on. Millions and millions killed.

The Third Reich was, and America is, the chief threat to peace on the planet, a truly rogue state.

Is this something to be proud of?

 

Other stuff

La FIL, Feria Internacional de Libros, International Book Fair, Guadalajara, an annual event. I post the photo with the joyous sense of mischief of an eleven-year-old poking a nest of wasps. It will infuriate the Dissident Right, or Alt Right, or Race Realists. Their leaders excepted, most of these are ill-tempered naifs who insist, and seem to hope desperately, that Latin Americans are illiterate. I occasionally have conservative friends down and they are astonished to find that Guadalajara, a large international city, has the sorts of bookstores had by large international cities. Duh. (If interested, here are a couple of dozen.)

Another and cherished conceit of the Dissident Right is that Latin Americans who can read must be white. Well, I guess. Why, you could easily mistake the crowd above for Norwegians. Their ancestors probably arrived with Leif Erikson.

  2. Biff says:

    Dare I say that Hitler’s Germany was of moral superiority than the freak show that Washington has become?

  3. So if the U.S. is the equivalent of Nazi Germany, why on earth would Canada, Cuck Island, France, Germany and Australia align with us? Surely they would see the same thing as Fred, because they’re smart people and would notice important stuff like oh, Nazi behavior. But they do align with us. Not only that, they actually get pretty pissy at any hint that the U.S. isn’t totally committed to NATO and other security pacts. They accused Trump of being “isolationist” back in 2016 if you recall, after some rather disparaging comments about NATO. Some believe the Cuck Islanders launched a coup attempt against him solely because of those comments.

    So if the high IQ peoples of Europe who presumably know Nazism when they see it don’t agree with Fred, and are eager to be associated with the American military, there can be only one conclusion. Reed’s full of shit.

  4. The Hun says:

    I do not know who said it first but I believe Hitler used to say it: The winner is always right. No soldier of the allied forces ever got punished for war crime. The allies did plenty torture during and after WWII, for example the Russians sentenced some German POWs after the war for the Katyn massacre and the prisoners actually admitted it in open court. The British admitted a few years ago torturing German prisoners to death, some even AFTER the war ended.

  7. unit472 says:

    I’m afraid Reed has gone off the deep end or is using his adopted homeland’s narcotics to excess. To compare the German invasion of Poland with the US toppling an Iraqi regime is ridiculous. Where is the US annexation of Iraqi territory? Who is our Hans Frank? I’m not even going to get into the difference between Abu Ghraib and Treblinka because if Reed can’t see the distinction between an incident and a national policy he is either just trolling or stupid.

    Odd that a man who, in his youth, was a writer for Soldier of Fortune Magazine. a publication that glorified everything he now finds objectionable ( which means Reed himself was a mercenary but a man’s got to make a living doesn’t he) but finds no fault with Mexico dumping its surplus population ( and criminal gangs) on the US. That is a genuine invasion far more destructive than anything the Wehrmacht did to the Polish people. Go to Poland today and the people, culture and language are still Polish not German. Reed is a fool.

  8. WHAT says:

    This very site has a big article about poles beginning a literal ethnic cleansing in Danzig, thus provoking Germany into starting war. Hitler tried every possible way to stop them before attacking.

  12. A flaw in this analogy is that the US Gov’t is still under the purported control of the American people, while, pretty early on, the 3rd Reich government under Hitler was not under the German people’s control any more. Now, the argument back will be that our politicians are mostly puppets and voting doesn’t matter. I agree with that argument.

    However, the Police State is not total right now. The American people have a chance to set things right. Will they? Nah, I doubt it, as they’re too busy with their Bread & Circuses, and afraid of being called names like “racist”, “survivalist”, “muh Constitutionalist”, etc.

  13. Americans want empire and oil, control of which allows control of the world

    Most Americans don’t want empire, and it’s not all about oil. It’s about the most powerful military by far in the world of 30 years ago, after the winning of the Cold War, being used by Neocons for their pet projects all over the world, like a toy. The Neocons don’t represent Americans, just as the Nazis didn’t represent average Germans. The fault in the people is in allowing it to go this far. The immense goodwill in the world that the US lost in the last 3 decades make the 1929 stock market crash looks like a rounding error.

    If there is any accuracy in this analogy of Mr. Reed’s, it’s just that indeed governments, if not restrained, become out-of-control BEASTS. (I believe it was Founder George Washington who said this better than I just did. He’d be ready to burn down the city with his name on it, were he alive today.)

    But, then your Big-Gov Socialists on here will tell us it’ll all be alright once we get the RIGHT KIND of Big Government.

  14. @Colin Wright

    Fred is almost always curiously quiet about Israel and the overwhelming influence of Jews on American life. It’s quite odd. Perhaps he’s just a man of his times. When he was younger, Jewish influence wasn’t pervasive. Gentile whites ran the show for their their own purposes.

  23. With this article, I finally have concluded that Fred is clinically insane. He seems to believe fervently that “right wingers” simply hate brown people when the reality is obviously that many people don’t want uncontrolled illegal immigration.

    He seems to think that German Aryan supremacists equates with the stupidity of US neo-con policy. It has nothing in common.

    Fred is so misguided and wrongheaded it’s really impossible to know where to start.

    But the key is his insistence that if you don’t want people streaming into your country, you are obviously fearful of the “other.”

    Fred is clearly insane. He should stick to the very narrow topics of which he knows. Will he?

    Guess not. Fred? You are taking a vacation right now? Can you just make it permanent? Nothing you write about is true or real. You’re living in your fantasy world. Go. Go with God, Fred. Happy New Year.

  24. @restless94110

    Fred is not insane, just ignorant. Apparently he believes all the lies that have been told about Hitler and the Germans. He should read revisionist (i.e., true) history. He could start with David Irving. Or read Unz, right on this site, about WW2, the Holocaust–lies that have deranged the world. Hitler bent over backward trying to make peace with England. Churchill and the Zionists behind him rejected all his offers. That war was, as Pat Buchanan put it in the title of his book, completely “Unnecessary”. Educate yourself!

  37. I was a Christian all those years who believed in militarism for a good cause, until my faith was sorely tested when I saw how evil it was 15 years ago, as redescribed here.

    I thought how terrible it was recently, how the President pardoned those military personnel, but then after a troubling dream I woke up realizing that the whole society has already pardoned the architects and commanders of the war, who conduct it from afar and in safety, killing many each day, whether combatants or not and will continue to do so indefinitely.

    Like Pilate, no political figure has the power to much alter the trajectory of war, we can say with assurance, emphasized again after all the recent three year sideshow.

    Why should those sent there to do the killing on the lower end be the ones to be the scapegoats, while the others not only get off scot free, but continue to profit in both careers and in finance?

    Hypocrisy of the most blatant degree – but only perceived by thinking more of why the grunts got “pardoned.” These realizations don’t make me a good Christian, but I cannot think otherwise about it without being a worse Christian, without indulging the lies.

    Correct.
    Sadly, my country, (Britain) does the same, sending our sons (and a handful of token daughters) on the putative bidding of elected politicians, to defend Israel’s interests.
    Curiously, the children of British Jews very, very rarely serve in “our” military, and even more rarely in roles and/or appointments where they will be likely to engage the enemy in close combat.

    One has to hand it to “our” vile political class. Although whenever the Jewish lobby shouts ” Shit!” they race to beat easc other to the shovel. some of them even manage to have both Jew and Arab bribing them–oops!- sorry, donating to their campaign funding or giving them part-time jobs as “consultants,

    Gulf Wahibis and Israeli Jews sometimes behave like hyped-up buyers at an auction, desperate to buy what’s on sale.

    You mention deracination of gentile Whites.
    Here in Europe this has been achieved by decades of force-feeding multi-kulti from primary school onwards, and “moral” blackmail to enable mass immigration of “refugees”>

    Strangely, Israel takes on a microscopic amount of refugees, few, if, any, being non-Jewish.
    Or Black and non-Jewish. Even those Abyssinian Jews who used The Right of Return Act which guaranteed the rights of ethnic Jews to settle in Israel are far from encouraged, although, to be fair, a minority of Israeli Jews do protest against Jewish Racism and privilege.

As we know from posters on this board, Europeans & Canucks are absolute darlings who are caught in an abusive marriage with Nazi America and simply can’t get out. (We can call this Battered NATO Member Syndrome–licensed therapists can help)

    Europeans would never use NATO cynically, or for sadistic sport–and if it appears that they did so, obviously Americans made them do it.

    Americans mostly don’t care about anybody else except themselves. Millions dead overseas as a result of US actions? Huh, what?

    The reason America is slaughtering innocent people all over the planet, is because the ((media)) and America’s powerful institutions (and in particular, its central bank) are in the hands of genocidal, supremacist, murderous fiends.

    The exact same genocidal, murderous, supremacist fiends that dragged America into both world wars on behalf of Zionism.

    Did you know that?

    Have you ever heard of the Balfour Declaration?

    Do you know why the ZUS of A destroyed Iraq?

    Do you know why the ZUS destroyed Libya and Syria?

    Have you ever heard of the Golan Heights?

    Provided you’re not a retarded kindergartener, this is all more or less common knowledge, for those with a shred of curiosity.

    But what’s far, far worse than a retarded kindergartener (who’s really blameless), is a venal whore – who shills for the very genocidal, murderous, supremacist fiends- by deflecting from their guilt, and attempting to place the blame on a ((lied-to)) and powerless populace, that never had a say in any of these devil’s wars.

    The American people always vote for the anti-war president, and always get betrayed by the venal whores in the pay of the genocidal, murderous, supremacist fiends.

    If it were up to the American people, these evil wars would all end yesterday. But it’s not up to the American people, rather it’s always up to venal whores and liars and the murderous, genocidal fiends that toss them their thirty shekels.

  46. Well said.

    William L Shirer is a favorite of mine in what I would call history-journalism.

    I read his Berlin Diary as well as other books.

    Shirer famously said – I think in the days when he covered the Nazis for the Chicago Tribune, approximately these words:

    “America could well be the first nation to go fascist voluntarily.”

    He was a keen observer and saw the tone and trends inside the United States.

    And he worked for “Colonel” Robert McCormick, publisher of the Tribune, a notoriously right-wing and biased newspaper.

    America’s laws for sterilizing “the unfit” came before Hitler’s, and thousands were abused by them.

    Henry Ford wrote appalling words.

    As did Rockefeller.

    The Nazi Bund became a big organization in the US.

    Of course, there was the KKK and others.

    There were many Hitler admirers in the ranks of corporate leaders and public celebrities, including Charles Lindbergh.

    If Iraq had all this oil why did Saddam invade Kuwait? If Syria had all this oil why did Assad the Younger (idiot) put up the price of fuel causing the protests that snowballed into the rebellion and civil war? The main reason for invading Iraq in my opinion was to pacifying the restive Saudi populace by getting the US army (in Saudi Arabia to protect its family dictatorship from Saddam’s Iraq) out of Saudi Arabia.

    The average Saudi Arabian objects to an infidel (American) Army being in Saudi Arabia to protect The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques (ie Saudi family dictatorship) from another Muslim country. So when Bin Laden did 9/11 Iraq had to be invaded to protect the Saud family dictatorship from its population by enabling the removal of the US army from Saudi Arabia.

    Having learned something, the US is avoiding sending its sending the 12,000 strong extra troops for the Middle East Trump recently announced to to Saudi Arabia, but it is Saudi Arabia they will be protecting (as best they can without being there). Which is not very well, but there are 70,000 US troops in an around the Middle East.

    The German Nazis worshiped Blood and Soil, the land of Germany and the Teutonic race, which they believed to be genetically superior to all others.

    https://www.historyextra.com/period/second-world-war/brendan-simms-biography-adolf-hitler-what-dictator-thinking/ The emigration argument was also the underpinning of the project of lebensraum – or ‘living space’ – in the east. When it came to plans for settling the eastern territories, Hitler specifically called the areas around the Volga the ‘Mississippi’ of the German Reich, and stated that he hoped to settle these areas not only with the demographic overflow from Europe but also with returning German-Americans

    . In the Thirties he was toying with the idea of swapping German Americans for Jewish Germans. Hitler thought the US had taken the best German blood. He feared economic penetration by Anglo Saxon powers and emigration , Hitler was pessimistic about German weakness in the face of the superior racial quality of the “Anglo-Saxon” antagonists , which he observed when he was escorting to America soldiers to escort back to headquarters. Hitler thought the demographic haemorrhaging of the highest-value German blood to American (mainly before Germany was unified) was its biggest l0ng term problem. Hitler was not evil (the Jewish doctor who treated Hitler’s mother for terminal cancer said he had never seen anyone so heartbroken as young Adolph) a brave and honourable soldier in WW1, and kind to animals (he forbade the boiling of live lobsters) but saw his country defeated and in peril of extinction in the long term. Hard times make hard people.

    Germany did not attack England or France, they declared war on it. When German reunification happened Irish politician and historian Conor Cruise O’Brien predicted that there would soon be a statue of Hitler in every major German town. Instead there is a brothel in every town in Germany, and some villages too.

    What you are ignoring is that Hitler was a socialist, just as are the present Democrats in the U.S. One of the first things he did after gaining power was confiscate all private firearms, just as Democrats wish to do here. The founding fathers wrote the Second Amendment to protect citizens against tyrannical government, the protection the Democrats wish to remove. Hitler was quite popular partly because of the social programs he instituted which are analogous to Obamacare for one.

    Trump is many things, many of those being irritating and grating. What he is not is a socialist/Marxist trying to destroy the Constitution as the Democrats have been attempting to do since the beginning of the FDR era.

    The Syrian war has never been about oil. It has been about destabilizing or toppling a government the United States and its regional friends dislike because it is independent-minded and does not embrace America’s vision for the region. It refuses to take the Pledge of Allegiance.

    You see he says “America’s vision for the region”.

    It isn’t the ((neocons)) who’ve hijacked American policy, but rather the Deplorables, who want a ‘wall’, and demand everyone bow down to the ‘Stars and Stripes’, and Pledge Allegiance to same.

    @Pat Kittle

    Fearless Fred Reed obviously is aware of all (((this))). He’s not clueless. Why he deliberately ignores (((it))) is the real key to understanding him.

    I’ve been reading (and generally enjoying) Reed’s articles for decades now. He’s always been rather circumspect when it comes to certain ((issues)), but he used to be a welcome breath of fresh prose when it came to- what I’ll call the ‘Oprah syndrome’.

    I suppose his myopia vis-a-vis the tribe has always simply been prudence, vis-a-vis his bottom line. The tribe has the shekels, and keys to ‘respectability’ in “journalist” circles around Virginia and DC, places I suspect Fredo likes to schmooze. So Fredo is simply like all the other “journalists”, and knows which side of the bread has the butter.

    But then something happened to Fredo with the advent of Trump. A rather startling transformation, whereby our former wry critic of all things PC, morphed into a rhetorical Oprah bot. And there too, I suspect I know why.

    When Trump proclaimed that white America wasn’t congenitally evil, and that Mexicans and Muslims and the overflow from ‘shithole’ countries, weren’t entitled to take back what evil, racist white Americans had collectively stolen from them, there was a skulking, seething response by the world’s butt-hurt professional POC and their apologists.

    For at least a generation, the trajectory in America (in particular, and the West in general) has been that whitey is racist and guilty and deserves a massive comeuppance for his crimes against all People of Color. Since we can’t lynch the Southern Plantation owners, (since they’re all dead) we can at least punish anyone who looks like them. So we get Affirmative Action, and massive immigration, and favorable treatment from all government and ((cultural)) institution vis-a-vis the evil racist white man, vs. ‘women and POC and Jews and everybody who isn’t one of those evil white racist men, who’re descended from slavers and genocidal rapists.

    This has been the mantra and cultural trajectory since at least a generation. And as whitey was/is excoriated and discriminated-against with bigoted laws that singled him out for myriad forms of disenfranchisement, the undercurrent of glee from the butt-hurts and SJWs could barely be contained. There will be a ‘Reconquista!’, they gloated with unbridled lust. Whitey is doomed!!’

    And so it was..

    But then Trump appeared on the political stage, and proclaimed that whitey isn’t really evil or racist or even doomed (yet). In fact, whitey still has a few decades left to serve as cannon fodder and mechanics to keep the wheels of Zion greased and running smooth.

    This was disruption! This was infamy! Allowing whitey to cling to some shred of dignity, was/is simply not something they were (or are) willing to tolerate. Fuck no!

    It is a complete reversal of the entire Matrix of ‘justified’ hatred and malice for all straight, unapologetic white men. Unacceptable!!

    Today this sanctimonious, butt-hurt rage is known as TDS, (Trump Derangement Syndrome), and we see it from all corners of the butt-hurt-asphere. But especially in Mexico, where the Reconquista was/is in full swing.

    Which brings us to Fredo. Fredo doesn’t just live in Mexico, his family is Mexican (for all practical purposes). Right now the roiling hatred for Trump (and the Deplorables/’gas station louts’) in Mexico is off the charts.

    If Fredo expects to have any kind of home life at all, with daughters who no doubt sympathize with the ‘Mexican plight’, (all a direct consequence of racist white, American ‘gas station louts’ who invaded Mexico and exploited her and looted and oppressed her, just as they continue to do today..), then he’s going to have to rail against Trump and the ‘louts’ who voted for him, or he’s simply not going to have the affection of his family.

    Voila’

    There you have it. Why our former Fred Reed morphed into the tiresome apologist for all things Mexican – Fredo.

    Now, as the necessary disclaimer; since we have all been marinated in the (((hysterical idiocies of our PC cartoon Matrix))), saying that white men are not evil racists who all must pay, does not mean I therefor hate all blacks and Mexicans and women and others, and want to kill or enslave them all. No.

    It only means that white people too, are entitled to self-determination, even white men living in N. America, and that if you don’t agree, then I consider you lowlife vermin scum.

    But if all people could simply agree that we’re all entitled to self-determination and dignity, and the right to raise our families with some hope that our children can grow up happy and well-adjusted, then there might be some shred of hope.

    There are eerie similarities between the methods employed by the Third Reich and the US empire.

    Recently I read where a congressman was ‘outraged’ over comparisons between the Nazi Germany and Israel today.

    I have to agree, than any comparisons are indeed outrageous.

    The Nazis were expelling a hostile people who had declared war on Germany, many of whom were seeking to genocide the German people from their ancient lands.

    Whereas the Zionist, Jewish supremacist in Israel today, are not trying to maintain ownership of their own lands, (as the Germans were), but are rather attempting to use terror and mass-murder and oppression and theft, to wipe out an indigenous population from their own ancient lands.

    It is a lie that (European) Jews have ties to the land of Palestine. It is a lie that they have a right to murder and steal those people’s lands.

    Germany was defending its ancient lands from those who would genocide them off of it, and steal it for themselves.

    Palestine and Palestinians are doing the same.

    The similarities between Germany and the USA, are that in both countries, Jewish supremacists were/are trying to genocide the rightful citizens (at least the white ones in America) from their lands.

    That these Jewish supremacists have coopted the governments and institutions of N. America, (though treachery, guile and theft), and are using their ill-gotten power over America’s institutions to murder and terrorize millions of other beleaguered people on this planet, (whom J-supremacists consider inconvenient) only goes to show what the German people faced when Jewish supremacists had coopted Russia, and used their ill-gotten power to genocide and terrorize the people of Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, and everywhere else these genocidal fiends could rain down horrors unleashed upon untold millions of people.

    So there are similarities between Nazi Germany and modern day America.

    Both nations were/are menaced by Jewish supremacists hell-bent on genociding the best of those nations. [‘kill the best of the Gentiles’]

    Both nations were/are in death throes do to their kindness and generosity by inviting in significant number of Jews.

    Both nations now pay untold billions of dollars of tribute to a rogue nation. that uses the extorted loot to corrupt their institutions, while simultaneously perpetrating atrocities and committing genocide. (Ironically, it took the advent of Israel, for the German people to be complicit in an actual genocide. That of the Palestinians).

    There are other ties, it was Jewish supremacists that dragged America into WW I, in a betrayal of America and Germany.

    It was Jewish supremacists that foisted the second world war, getting untold Germans and Americans slaughtered in the process.

    When you think about it, yes, Germany and America do have quite a lot in common.

    There are now 28 NATO members aside from the U.S. If your theory was correct, at least one of those countries would call timeout and say “you guys suck. We’re outta here.” But no one does.

    There would be Muslims rotting in jail if they presented the problem in the US they have in Europe. Try being a Pakistani groomer and working the public school system in America. Thirty cops will be surrounding you in ten minutes (On the other hand, if you are a female named Maxwell its cool).
    There are not enough Muslims in the US to elicit those kind of police state responses. But the US is a police state anyhow. Mostly because black and Mexican gangs have to be strong-armed but the same tactics could be applied to Muslims-however it is a big ocean and few of them can cross it to reach frisson, so to speak.

    Also, Trump is not responsible for the ME wars which created the mess post 9-11 which created the refugee crisis.

    The guy responsible is drinking beer on his ranch in Texas now. The white proles elected him. Not Jews by the way. They all voted for Gore. It was whites who felt Clinton’s behavior with chubby Jewish girls was untoward so they elected an alcoholic mass murderer instead.

    The only real danger comes from the other side of the Atlantic: from the US that since it conquered Europe in 1943-45 (paradoxically known as “liberation”), has made Europe into the main basis of its Empire. NATO is a criminal organization, a sham, no more.

    “It is of course Shirer’s account as a correspondent in Germany of the rise of the Nazis. Most of it is well known to the educated. The Nazis, who had control over the domestic press, convinced the German population that the Poles were threatening Germany, as plausible as Guatemala threatening the United States.”

    And that is why the “educated” are mostly uninformed idiots that think they know better than the people that lived there what the situation was. The Poles proposed to France three times that they jointly invade Germany after Hitler came to power. The French turned them down. The allies, eager to weaken and humiliate Germany after WW I, stole huge areas of Germany and Austria and put many millions of Germans under foreign rule and Germans were mistreated. Then Hitler was elected to stop the French and Belgians from crossing the border into Germany to beat up Germans when they didn’t receive their reparations money and to free the Germans under foreign rule. With encouragement from the British, Poland refused to negotiate with the Germans. Germany finally took back the land stolen from them and freed their people after making numerous attempts to solve their differences with Poland peacefully, a country that was 14 years old when Hitler was elected Chancellor.

Again, all because your supremacist ego objects to our country’s criminals and their atrocities being likened to the Nazis. How adroitly you skirt those issues! Does it matter what labels are attached to such atrocities?

Hitler won. it might have been different if the British had accepted peace proposals but FDR stiffened their spine as Herbert Hoover said FIFTY YEARS later in ‘Freedom Betrayed.Herbert Hoover p. 818 in his long history of the Second World War ‘Freedom Betrayed’
    said Kennedy, the Ambassador to Great Britain, told Hoover that FDR lobbied incessantly for Britain to give a war guarantee to Poland, thus steeling the Polish resolve and causing Britain to be drawn into a war that would lose its Empire.“Kennedy said that after the Germans had occupied Prague and the great cry of appeasement had sprung up in the world and after the Germans had pressed their demands for Danzig and an passage through the Corridor, that Roosevelt and Bullitt were the major factors in the British making their guarantees to Poland and becoming involved in the war. Kennedy said that Bullitt, under instructions from Roosevelt, was constantly urging the Poles not to make terms with the Germans and that he Kennedy, under instructions from Roosevelt, was constantly urging the British to make guarantees to the Poles. Kennedy said he had received a cable from Roosevelt to “put a poker up Chamberlain’s back and make him stand up.” Kennedy saw Chamberlain on numerous occasions, urging him in Roosevelt’s name to do all this with the implication that the United States would give the British support. He said that after Chamberlain had given these guarantees, Chamberlain told him(Kennedy) that he hoped the Americans and the Jews would now be satisfied but that he(Chamberlain) felt that he had signed the doom of civilization.”

  90. @John Chuckman

    read this just 90 min ago, from Lenni Brenner’s Zionism in the Age of Dictators: — Zionist Jews in Italy were tail over teacup in love with Mussolini and Fascism, going so far as to claim, as is the Jewish wont, that Jews invented Fascism before the Italians:

    “With this last meeting Mussolini became lionised by Zionism. Sokolow not only praised the Italian as a human being but announced his firm belief that Fascism was immune from anti-Semitic preconceptions. He went even further: in the past there might have been uncertainty about the true nature of Fascism, but now, “we begin to understand its true nature … true Jews have never fought against you”.
    These words, tantamount to a Zionist endorsement of the Fascist regime, were echoed in Jewish periodicals all over the world. In this period, which saw a new legal relationship established between the Jewish community and the Fascist state, expressions of loyalty and affection for Fascism poured out of the Jewish centers of Italy. “

    Labor zionists were not so enthusiastic about Fascism, but keen enough to operate in other Italian movements:

    The Labour Zionists were loosely affiliated to the underground Italian Socialist Party via the Socialist International and they complained, but the Italian Zionists were overjoyed. Prosperous and extremely religious, these conservatives saw Mussolini as their support against Marxism and its concomitant assimilation. In 1927 Rabbi Sacerdoti gave an interview to the journalist Guido Bedarida:

    Professor Sacerdoti is persuaded that many of the fundamental principles of the Fascist Doctrine such as: the observance of the laws of the state, respect of traditions, the principle of authority, exaltation of religious values, a desire for the moral and physical cleanliness of family and the individual, the struggle for an increase of production, and therefore a struggle against Malthusianism, are no more or less than Jewish principles.

    Brenner next identifies “The ideological leader of Italian Zionism,” lawyer Alfonso Pacific — Fascist before Fascism was Fascismi:

    An extremely pious man, he ensured that the Italian Zionists were to become the most religious branch of the world movement. In 1932 another interviewer told of how Pacifici also:

    expressed to me his conviction that the new conditions would bring about a revival of Italian Jewry. Indeed, he claimed to have evolved a philosophy of Judaism akin to the spiritual Tendenz of Fascism long before this had become the rule of life in Italian polity.

    “I actually did vote for it before I voted against it.”

Because of the media blackout a lot of people don’t know these facts. A documentary which is partly based on THE WAR THAT HAD MANY FATHERS is here.
    http://archive.org/details/HitlersWar-W … estVersion

    I have just finished reading the book on which the above documentary is based. It goes into a lot greater detail. Some interesting observations –
    1) The author Gerd Schulze Rhonhof is of the opinion Operation Barbarossa was preventive – Operation Barbarossa Was A Preventive Attack
    2) Roosevelt entered into agreements with the British and French navies to support a blockade of Germany if war broke out. He did this without the consent of Congress.
    3) Britain and France both stated they would declare war on the Soviet Union if that country invaded Poland which is what happened on September 17 1939 – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_invasion_of_Poland Neither country kept its word. In fact a few weeks after Poland’s surrender Britain and France asked Stalin if he would like to join them and change sides by attacking Germany. The duplicity of the Anglo-French governments is beyond belief.
    4) . . . in world war 2 France actually invaded German territory first. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saar_Offensive
    5) Before signing the nazi-soviet pact Stalin informed the German government that it refused to acquiesce to Soviet intentions regarding the Baltic countries (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) then it was no deal.

  103. William Shirer’s accounts of the Third Reich are frightfully dated and almost universally dismissed by modern academic historians. Dare I question his objectivity by observing that he worked as a reporter, one of “Murrow’s boys”, for a radio network, CBS, that was owned by a Jewish family, or does that make me a racist antisemite neonazi?

    The 75 million people of National Socialist Germany were opposed by the half- billion strong British and French empires. Since the unification of the German states in 1871, both global superpowers did everything in their power to neutralize Germany’s potential threat to their international preeminence. In 1919, even after the horrific bloodletting of the Great War, French premier Clemenceau lamented that there were still “twenty million Germans too many.” Churchill famously stated that it did not matter whether Germany was ruled by a Hitler or by a Jesuit priest, only that the challenge her powerful economy presented to British hegemony must be eliminated.

    And remember that Britain, with France, declared war on Germany after Chamberlain sabotaged the Polish-German border negotiations, removing Polish incentives to accept the generous solution Germany offered to resolve their dispute. Fed lies by German expatriate aristocrats, British leaders believed a timely war declaration would cause the immediate collapse of Hitler’s government, or failing that, that the war would be a repeat of the Great War in which the Royal Navy would again starve into submission a nation that experience showed British arms could not defeat on the battlefield.

    And Nazi Germany was truly evil.

    Of course, discerning that in any way greater than in knowing and resenting/fearing that per capita Jews lead the dirty work of and easily profit most from the Anglo-Zionist Empire 2.0 requires you to discern also that the original WASP Empire, the British Empire, likewise slaughtered grandly and worked to engineer genocide of many cultures, starting with white Christian cultures, praising itself as The Moral Paragon while slaughtering to steal from non-WASPs, and thereby spreading evil globally, including seeding its Judaizing heretical theology in secular forms so that the sun never sets on it. And now most nations must bow to it.

America’s butchery of the Philippine Independentists, from 1900-1904, was furiously exposed by America’s greatest Humorist & fine writer, Mark Train (Clements).

    And this century:

    Post 1963 America, now completely under the rule & education of the Zionist Oligarch’s New World Order, has continued to mete out terror on a global scale.

    There are some commenters, and writers, who expend every effort to convert the 1933-1945 German Nazi Leaders into meritorious individuals, (Hitler was a poor misunderstood Artist, who only wished to help Germans get back their economic wellbeing – say these fools). By praising the Totalitarian political model, they undermine the struggle of the Palestinians to recover their Country, block opposition to Zionism, as well as impede the effort of Americans to Restore Our Republic, and by doing so, regain our Sovereignty and Honor

    – The bombing was not done only by german planes , some italian planes participated too .

    – Guernica is a basque town , the basques are victimists , are very good at playing the role of

    – Picasso `s picture Guernica became a left antiwar symbol because Picasso was a communist and all the powerful propaganda machine of the left contributed to make his picture Guernica a famous left antiwar symbol . But I have read that the ugly abstract picture was done before the bombing , that the picture was about bullfighting , and that the Republican governerment of Spain payed him very good money for the picture as well as for his collaboration in the propaganda war against Franco .

    – The Spanish civil war produced about 400.000 deaths in both sides , a great tragedy for both sides of course , but little in comparison with the millions of deaths produced by WW1 and WW2 in which Spain , fortunately , did not participate .

    Endearing comparison. However, after reading Curzio Malaparte (Kaputt), Hans Frank somehow strikes me more like a tragic figure than as an evil administrator. I suspect Bremer was just too stupid to understand what he was doing. However, he did duly carry out the orders he was given. Carrying out orders is, of course, always the best way of making a career in a rule-based environment.

    I’d call Mexico a rogue state, but it’s not really a functioning state.

    You might apply the same standards of observation to post 11/22/1963 America.

    Mexico is an economically underdeveloped nation, and it relies on a few exports to maintain its economy (oil, drugs, and people), and substantial local food production to feed its population. Its government is slightly independent (unlike that of Zionist Puppet USA).

    Mexico’s current President, Obrador, has a long history of political struggle & has previously, twice, been blocked by the US Government – from assuming the Office of President, (after he won the elections). Ron Paul received the same treatment here in the USA. Obrador will attempt to reform/fix Mexico. It has been his goal all his long life. He is not likely to succeed. But he will try.

    Wiki link for quick ID purposes:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9s_Manuel_L%C3%B3pez_Obrador

    The major “rogue state” on this planet, is the Zionist Entity, which, in coordination with the Rothschilds and a dozen other Jewish Oligarchs, controls (to varying degrees), a hundred other Puppet “rogue” states.

    Democratic Republics, led by a People-In-Arms, are the solution to defeating Rogue states, and their Rogue leaders.

    Paul Bremer’s job was to dismantle the state and create the chaos of sectarian insurgency chiefly by disbanding the Iraqi army. The objective was to destroy Iraq and set it back decades in cultural and industrial development. His predecessor General Jay Garner actually was trying to make the transition for Iraq as painless as possible. That’s why he was recalled. Paul Brenner presided over the looting of billions of dollars of Iraq frozen money delivered to Iraq from the NY Federal Reserve on cargo planes.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/feb/08/usa.iraq1
    The US flew nearly $12bn in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, then distributed the cash with no proper control over who was receiving it and how it was being spent.

    In the year after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 nearly 281 million notes, weighing 363 tonnes, were sent from New York to Baghdad for disbursement to Iraqi ministries and US contractors. Using C-130 planes, the deliveries took place once or twice a month with the biggest of $2,401,600,000 on June 22 2004, six days before the handover.

    If Iraq had all this oil why did Saddam invade Kuwait?

    Pierre Salinger’s Secret Dossier: The Hidden Agenda behind the Gulf War https://books.google.com/books?id=gtM6gtDwHt0C&focus=searchwithinvolume&q=Kuwait offers this nuanced explanation.

    The overall idea is that Iraq was deeply in debt in aftermath of war with Iran, which Iraq said it waged in defense of the other Arab states. Saddam wanted those states to aid Iraq in getting out of debt.
    As you state, Iraq had “all this oil,” but in response to Saddam’s plea, Kuwait lowered the price of oil, (follow the economic impacts). Kuwait could afford to sell its oil more cheaply because
    1. it was stealing oil from Iraq by horizontal drilling into Iraqi fields; and
    2. Kuwait had substantial financial investments all over the world; Kuwait was small enough and invested well enough that it did not need revenues from oil.
    but Iraq had ONLY oil to sell, could not afford to undersell Kuwait, would not have enough margin to pay war debts.

    Hussein attacked Kuwait out of desperation — and perhaps also as an inevitable outcome of a well-used western imperialist gambit: provoke provoke provoke, and eventually the provoked party will react violently, at which time the provoked party will cry, I’m a Victim, and the big bad cop will come in and bust Iraqi heads — a desired outcome, from western pov.
    Saddam had served his purpose in bloodying Iran, now the west had an interest in getting rid of him– his experience at war fighting had perhaps made him overconfident and willing to chafe at western leash.

    So if the high IQ peoples of Europe who presumably know Nazism when they see it don’t agree with Fred, and are eager to be associated with the American military, there can be only one conclusion. Reed’s full of shit.

    There is another conclusion that Nazi’s like you don’t see. Those countries are part of “Team NATO”, one for all and all for one! By signing their name on the NATO contract is the same as joining the Military. A soldier might not agree with going to battle and killing innocent men, women and children, but he committed himself by signing his recruitment papers. So, he wakes up one day and finds himself in a third world country, breaking doors down and shooting the people that live there. He doesn’t like it, but hey that’s part of the job and is ordered to do that. Eventually his nightmare will end and he will complete his commitment and return to the safe home he left, where he will not be able to forget what he did and shoot himself in the head!

    Like the soldier, NATO Countries are finding themselves not being able to cope with what is expected from them by the U.S. and are starting to rebel against their NATO partner, but not because they can’t handle horrors of war! No, those countries you mention are ZioNazis just like you and yours, no they are bucking the system because of money! They want to do business with countries that the U.S. wants to oppress, regime change or attack. Money trumps Morality in the countries that you mentioned as having a high IQ! High IQ is associated with low Morality…all you have to do is look in the mirror, and you will know that I’m right!

    But, thank “God” the people in Germany and France are waking up! The Cuck Island is your Master so they British/Israel are joined at the hip, and you do as they order you to do! Mr. Reeves is on spot with his article, because I live in Mexico and we do read books, I have a different take on Germany and Hitler than he does but that is his view and I respect it.

    Hey insult man, I oppose our wars overseas. I oppose our bases. I’d bring all the troops home and station them on the Mexican border. But even I, a committed non-interventionist of the Pat Buchanan school, see the absurdity of likening America to Nazi Germany. Reed does too; he’s just a clickbait publishing troll with a deadline he had to meet. I’m not glossing over anything, the Vietnam War was terrible (Reed supported that) and so was Iraq. I marched against the Iraq intervention. But if you use the Nazi term, the bar is very high. Strong evidence must be assembled. And you’d be calling all of Europe “Nazi” for associating with us.

    By the way here’s Reed in February 2003 on going to war in Iraq:

    We are waging war on Islam. Put starkly, the idea is not convincing. If however one believed that, for whatever reason, we were seeing a civilizational conflict between European and Islamic societies, or anything resembling it, a case for invading Iraq could be made. Is such a conflict brewing? Cogent arguments can be made both that it is and is not.

  146. To begin with, William Shirer’s works on National Socialist Germany have been seriously questioned as to the accuracy of the information presented. Some researchers have seen Shirer as merely a shill for the Allied West.

    Second, the Third Reich never fostered propaganda to my knowledge that Poland was about to attack a defenseless Germany and so a pre-emptive invasion was required.

    In this regard, the leaders in 1930s Poland were quite delusional about their military capabilities and were always promoting an attack on The Reich to their own population (Ar favorite saying of the Polish leadership was that it would only take 3 weeks to have Polish Forces in Berlin.). So if a still struggling Germany had become somewhat nervous about such an endeavor they had good reason to be so.

    Third, the attack on Poland was not a pre-emptive strike. It was in fact, more or less a rescue operation to halt the violent and oppressive Polish policies that had been increasingly fomented by the Beck Administration against the German ethnic minorities who lived in Poland.

    So my recommendation to Fred Reed would be to find a better book about National Socialist Germany before writing commentary on it…

    We get dead and maimed soldiers..

    Untold trillions of dollars of unpayable debt. (for which our progeny will be on the hook to banksters for perpetuity).

    We get the well-deserved hatred of billions of people planet-wide. Including the over one billion Muslims, who must surely hate the west for its murderous and craven fealty to Zion.

    And, we get the karmic knowledge that we are a nation and nations of murderous curs. Slavishly slaughtering and maiming and displacing millions of innocent people, in abased obeisance to some very repulsive Jewish supremacists. [see Adlelson, Sheldon, et al]

    So that’s a short liturgy of some of the costs of these Eternal Wars for Israel, (including obviously all the wars on Iraq, going back at least to Desert Storm).

    So I’m at a loss for the ‘western interests’ that were served by these wars.

    I suppose what people mean, when they say that, is western oil interests, but even so, has it been established that western oil corporations have benefited from the Eternal Wars?

    And if so, (which I’ve seen no evidence of), how is it a corrupt big corporation’s bottom line, benefits anyone other than the pigs at that particular trough?

    Do mechanics and teachers in Nebraska (or Ireland or Belgium) benefit from Iraqi oil?

    I always enjoy Fred’s articles and this was no exception.

    However, I rather think that Fred has been somewhat hard on both Germany and on Hitler himself.

    Hitler had of course, had taken power in a country that was greatly impoverished both by war and the punitive Treaty of Versailles. By 1932 Germany was still, for all intents and purposes, surrounded by enemies, even though the fighting war had ended some years earlier. Germany’s excesses in attempting to rectify at least some of the glaring defects of the treaty were thus to some extent understandable, if not at all excusable.

    The US though, has never had to face similar harsh or even unjust impediments on its ability to function and so its long running miscreant behaviour can merit no mitigation or even sympathetic understanding.

    Fred has also it seems, taken to heart the whole basket of the now almost official truisms, in regard to the German treatment of Jewry. I do wonder whether he has kept abreast of all the related and informative articles that have appeared on the Unz Review over the past few years.

    And when this article casually mentions, in passing, that Washington lied that “Iraq had poisonous gas”, well, this better be immediately substantiated in the article, that this (regarding specifically to gas of all WMDs) was a known and intentional lie by DC.

    My Brother Rurik…been reading your comments! Always enjoy your passion brother!

    Hey, I just wanted to give you my opinion on current events in Mexico and the U.S. relationship with the new president. I know you read about the Sinaloa Cartel event with the Mexican Military and then just a couple of weeks latter the LeBaron ambush and murder of women and children.

    Trump offering Military support and the Mexican response of cooperation – yes, intervention – no.

    The U.S. sent Barr to meet with the president AMLO and Marcelo Ebrart in charge of Foreign Relations.

    After their meeting both countries agreed to work together and target the corruption, money laundering and weapons being trafficked by the Cartels and their U.S. partners. During the Chapo Guzman trial it was alleged that the Sinaloa Cartel had paid millions in bribes to Mexican Law Enforcement officials and two of the presidents in Mexico. It was also revealed that the D.O.J. had signed a contract with the Sinaloa Cartel that allowed them to ship loads of cocaine into the U.S. in exchange for providing information to the DEA on rival cartels.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/the-us-government-and-the-sinaloa-cartel-2014-1

    Last week the U.S. arrested an Ex Mexican Law Enforcement official in Dallas, TX.

    https://apnews.com/64ed8e71c818d766aa02e55b0bf9aff3

    It looks like this arrest was part of the collaboration agreed to by the U.S. and Mexico. Everybody in Mexico is talking about the Ex President Felipe Calderon being connected to the CIA and DEA during his presidency. The person arrested Mr. Garcia Luna was his right hand man and they were in business together ever since they worked together in Mexico. Mr. Calderon has been very vocal against the new president and was forming a new party to run against him. He and his followers have been behind of a lot of negative news and accusations including trying to blame him for the Sinaloa and Lebaron incidents. They have been on the news bad mouthing him and organizing protest marches with the LeBarons against the president.

    After the arrest of Garcia Luna in the U.S. and his possible ties to ex President Felipe Calderon and the Sinaloa Cartel, they have all stopped attacking the president. Calderon fell out of favor with the U.S. after it was reported that he met with Chinese officials about doing business with Huahwai cell phone company. The U.S. is looking for a trophy in the war against the Cartels, what better than to arrest one or two Corrupt Mexcican presidents!

    Here is were my opinion comes in, I believe that Felipe Calderon had something to do with the event in Sinaloa to make the president look bad. When it failed to turn into a blood bath, I believe he targeted the LeBarons in order to bring in the U.S. Military against the Cartels and somehow allow his people to organize a coup against the president. I always thought both events were “False Flag” operations, and the LeBaron event could have been a staged event or a real murder, but never by the Cartels. I said it first here, brother, now let’s see what happens in the coming days.

    From beautiful Northern Mexico with love…JG

    P.S. Fred is just seeing things from a different perspective and sometimes it gets you a little angry when you keep seeing things in the U.S. continue in the same direction.

    Hitler was a serious man with a worldview grounded by his extensive knowledge of history and the iron laws of nature. Trump is just a philo-semitic orange goofball who wings it each day.

    It will infuriate the Dissident Right, or Alt Right, or Race Realists. Their leaders excepted, most of these are ill-tempered naifs who insist

    So Mestizos in Guadalajara read? That’s great. Why would mestizos who read books infuriate dissident righters? But if they are so well read either America is getting mestizos who don’t read given their poor scholastic record in America or we’re out of magic dirt and they become dumb and incurious once they cross the border.

    Could it in any way exonerate the Germans to note that most of the areas they attacked: (a) were contiguous with Germany, or with such areas already occupied by Germany; (b) contained literally millions of German-speaking ethnic Germans; and (c) in many cases had been part of Germany a short 22 years before the Nazis attacked?
    None of these things is true of areas and countries attacked and occupied by the US.

    > If there was anything to find, the empire would have found it

    That is aposteriori, post-knowledge.

    What i said was about knowing for sure BEFORE invasion.
    There could have been two cases.

    1. USA (whatever you identify it with. CIA, Pentagon, Bush, Congress, people, whatever) did knew there is no more gas left, but pretended erring for the sake of invasion.
    2. USA did not know for sure and one of invasion reasons was to check.

    Depending on our emotional attitude towards USA we would be biased to choose and then emotionally defend one or another point. However, speculations aside, we have little facts to choose either stand. It is a matter of what you or me wish USA to be.

    Also, the original article did not speak about USA knowing this or that. The article bluntly claims Iraq did not had WMD. More so, there is no any time anchor given, so this ambiguous claim can be read both as “Iraq did not had gas starting year or two before invasion” and as “Iraq did not have gas, ever”.

    This does not add up to the article and makes all other claims in it look as more of emotional hype than accurate fact based reserved assesments.

    There is no excuse for Calley’s murders. There is no excuse for harming noncombatants. However, it is done and always has been either by accident or deliberately. The thing about being in combat or even close to it is you learn to hate the indigenous (natives). You hate their food, their language, their smell, their customs and just about everything. You just want to go home unless you are one of the few who simply love being an asshole. My Lai cannot be conflated with what the Nazis did in eastern Europe or the Japanese in Nanking and Manchuria. There is a difference between government policy and troops out of control. As for the “war criminals” that Trump pardoned, that is a joke. Seriously? Either an Army is made up of warriors who kill or it is made up of lawyers who really screw things up.

    Fred does not like his native country. He feels he has found something better. He is entitled to his opinion. Given time, the great southwestern US will be Mexico. Young folks would be well advised to take as many Spanish courses as possible while in high school/college. There will be much intermarriage as I already observe. Usually it is white males married to attractive Latinas. My own street in an upper class neighborhood demonstrates it.

    I am used to being lied to by the government, by businesses, even family. It is the human condition. It may be we are in an era where people don’t trust their institutions. Uhhhh, maybe the justice system as one prime example.

    As for WW II, anyone would be well advised to study it vis-a-vis Victor Davis Hanson’s books and youtube videos. He is a brilliant scholar and someone who delivers information in a calm and deliberative manner. Unlike Fred anymore. Fred, like many of us his age and also Vietnam veterans (drafted), is an angry person. His eyesight is a wreck and perhaps he struggles financially. He is fed up with the bullshit we have been fed all our lives. I get that. If someone comes up with another @#$%@%$ war, I’ll help my family to flee to wherever a draft cannot reach them. In WW II more civilians were killed by far than combatants and the losers killed more than the victors. A first.

    Did you know that in Europe in WW II when the allies had invaded via Normandy that there were some 55,000 desertions? Truman pardoned most of them. American service members. Patriotism? Ha! During the Civil War, there were tens of thousands of desertions on both sides but especially in the Confederate armies. After an ugly battle many faded away and headed west.
    People do get smart and it dawns on them that war is for the rich and the fight for the poor. Screw that.

    Things could be worse. Victorious armies could be like the Roman Legions. Enslave or slaughter a conquered region. Eradicate the future generations who might not like you. It worked for a long time. There are those who think we were far too lenient with Japan and Germany.

    yes the US has turned into a Nazi monstrosity

    You mean that the US is now an empire.

    Thing is, though, most of the world during the ten thousand years since the age of Gobekli Tepe has been organized on an imperial basis, and all empires establish themselves, grow, and fend of collapse in the same way: mass murder, theft and enslavement of conquered nations.

    Many may have hoped that the US would find a better way, and to a degree it has: consider for example the occupation of Europe since WW2, so lightly enforced that few Europeans even realize that they are under occupation.

    What is regrettable is the deliberate resort to brutality and humiliation of states recently reduced to subordination, as exemplified by the sexual humiliation of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, the use of napalm and white phosphorus in the siege of Fallujah, or the brutal murder of Muamar Gaddafi.

    All of which confirms that however wicked the methods of empire, one should be glad to be of the empire, rather than subordinate to it.

  196. @Arioch

    The US knew for a fact that at some point Saddam did have WMDs: the US via its puppets supplied the components and then watched with glee when Saddam used poison gas against Iran. I strongly suspect that at the time of invasion the US knew for a fact that Saddam did not have any left. Fact is, the US never attacks countries, however hostile and annoying, that do have WMDs. NK is a recent example. Lots of hot air and saber rattling, but no action.

    From what we know from former CIA analysts, deterioration of the US intelligence started later, when the CIA was forced to cook up false Iraq WMD evidence, so that everyone who had even a modicum of professional integrity and/or self-respect left. After that, I can believe that practically every event of consequence caught the US intelligence “community” with their pants down, be it Crimea in 2014 or Russian deployment to Syria in 2015.

    So, logically I can conclude that the whole Iraq WMD story was cooked up by those who wanted to use the US military to destroy Iraq. These people were likely incredibly dumb: the major winners were Iran and Al-Qaida, although Halliburton, weapons manufacturers, and Black Water snatched their dirty billions. The credibility of the US was damaged irreparably. About 4/5th of the people in the world still mention that vial of laundry detergent Powell shook. Considering how much the US elites degenerated after the fall of the USSR, the US actions were consistent with everything done before and after.

    And unpredictable dispersal after delivery make them very poor battlefield weapons: you are just as likely killing your own troops instead of the enemy’s. And even when on target, they don’t kill that many people (relatively speaking). Saddam’s chemical attack on Kurds killed at most about 5,000 people.

    When Poland was fighting in the east for its life to establish its eastern borders the Czechoslovakians broke its earlier agreement with Poland on the boundary demarcation and occupied the Zalozie where Poles were the majority.
    If Czechoslovakian would have honored its agreement on the border demarcation with Poland there would have not been no reason for Poland to go into Czechoslovakia in 1938.

    In January 1920 Czechoslovakian army breaking prior agreements with Poland, crossed the demarcation line and by force of arms occupied the Zaolzie, where a 60% majority of the population was Polish, compared to 25% Czechs. After brief fights they made a truce on the power of which Czechoslovakia occupied areas to the west of Olza River. The Czech claim to Lusatia, which had been part of the Bohemian Kingdom until the Thirty Years’ War, was rejected.

    Cieszyn Silesia was claimed by both Poland and Czechoslovakia: the Polish Rada Narodowa Księstwa Cieszyńskiego made its claim in its declaration “Ludu śląski!” of 30 October 1918, and the Czech Zemský národní výbor pro Slezsko did so in its declaration of 1 November 1918.[23]

    [MORE]

    On 31 October 1918, at the end of World War I and the dissolution of Austria-Hungary, the majority of the area was taken over by local Polish authorities supported by armed forces.[24] The interim agreement of 2 November 1918 reflected the inability of the two national councils to come to final delimitation.[23] On 5 November 1918, the area was divided between Poland and Czechoslovakia by an interim agreement of two local self-government councils (Czech Zemský národní výbor pro Slezsko and Polish Rada Narodowa Księstwa Cieszyńskiego).[25] Before that, the majority of the area was taken over by Polish local authorities. In 1919 both councils were absorbed by the newly created and independent central governments in Prague and Warsaw. The former was not satisfied with this compromise and on 23 January 1919 invaded the area[26][27] while Poland was engaged in its war against the West Ukrainian National Republic.

    The reason for the Czech invasion in 1919 was primarily the organisation of elections to the Sejm (parliament) of Poland in the disputed area.[28] The elections were to be held in the whole of Cieszyn Silesia. The Czechs claimed that the polls must not be held in the disputed area as the delimitation was only interim and no sovereign rule should be executed there by any party. When the Czech demand was rejected by the Poles, the Czechs decided to resolve the issue by force.[23]

    Czech units were held up near Skoczów and a ceasefire was signed on 3 February. The new Czechoslovakia claimed the area partly on historic and ethnic grounds, but especially on economic grounds.[29] The area was important for the Czechs as the crucial railway line connecting Czech Silesia with Slovakia crossed the area (the Košice-Bohumín Railway, which was one of only two railroads that linked the Czech provinces to Slovakia at that time).[29] The area is also very rich in black coal. Many important coal mines, facilities and metallurgy factories are located there. The Polish side based its claim to the area on ethnic criteria: a majority (69.2%) of the area’s population was Polish according to the last (1910) Austrian census.[8][30]

    In this very tense atmosphere it was decided that a plebiscite would be held in the area asking people which country this territory should join. Plebiscite commissioners arrived there at the end of January 1920, and after analysing the situation declared a state of emergency in the territory on 19 May 1920. The situation in the area remained very tense, with mutual intimidation, acts of terror, beatings and even killings.[31] A plebiscite could not be held in this atmosphere. On 10 July both sides renounced the idea of a plebiscite and entrusted the Conference of Ambassadors with the decision.[32] Eventually, on 28 July 1920, by a decision of the Spa Conference, Czechoslovakia received 58.1% of the area of Cieszyn Silesia, containing 67.9% of the population.[32] It was this territory that became known from the Polish standpoint as Zaolzie – the Olza River marked the boundary between the Polish and Czechoslovak parts of the territory.

    The most vocal support for union with Poland had come from within the territory awarded to Czechoslovakia, while some of the strongest opponents of Polish rule came from the territory awarded to Poland.[33]
    1918-19
    Leadership of the Civic Defence – Czech paramilitary organisation active in Cieszyn Silesia

    Historian Richard M. Watt writes, “On 5 November 1918, the Poles and the Czechs in the region disarmed the Austrian garrison (…) The Poles took over the areas that appeared to be theirs, just as the Czechs had assumed administration of theirs. Nobody objected to this friendly arrangement (…) Then came second thoughts in Prague. It was observed that under the agreement of 5 November, the Poles controlled about a third of the duchy’s coal mines. The Czechs realized that they had given away rather a lot (…) It was recognized that any takeover in Teschen would have to be accomplished in a manner acceptable by the victorious Allies (…), so the Czechs cooked up a tale that the Teschen area was becoming Bolshevik (…) The Czechs put together a substantial body of infantry – about 15,000 men – and on 23 January 1919, they invaded the Polish-held areas. To confuse the Poles, the Czechs recruited some Allied officers of Czech background and put these men in their respective wartime uniforms at the head of the invasion forces. After a little skirmishing, the tiny Polish defense force was nearly driven out.”[34]

    In 1919, the matter went to consideration in Paris before the World War I Allies. Watt claims the Poles based their claims on ethnographical reasons and the Czechs based their need on the Teschen coal, useful in order to influence the actions of Austria and Hungary, whose capitals were fuelled by coal from the duchy. The Allies finally decided that the Czechs should get 60 percent of the coal fields and the Poles were to get most of the people and the strategic rail line. Watt writes: “Czech envoy Edvard Beneš proposed a plebiscite. The Allies were shocked, arguing that the Czechs were bound to lose it. However, Beneš was insistent and a plebiscite was announced in September 1919. As it turned out, Beneš knew what he was doing. A plebiscite would take some time to set up, and a lot could happen in that time – particularly when a nation’s affairs were conducted as cleverly as were Czechoslovakia’s.”[35]
    Czech anti-Polish leaflet aimed at Cieszyn Silesians

    Watt argues that Beneš strategically waited for Poland’s moment of weakness, and moved in during the Polish-Soviet War crisis in July 1920. As Watt writes, “Over the dinner table, Beneš convinced the British and French that the plebiscite should not be held and that the Allies should simply impose their own decision in the Teschen matter. More than that, Beneš persuaded the French and the British to draw a frontier line that gave Czechoslovakia most of the territory of Teschen, the vital railroad and all the important coal fields. With this frontier, 139,000 Poles were to be left in Czech territory, whereas only 2,000 Czechs were left on the Polish side”.[35]

    “The next morning Beneš visited the Polish delegation at Spa. By giving the impression that the Czechs would accept a settlement favorable to the Poles without a plebiscite, Beneš got the Poles to sign an agreement that Poland would abide by any Allied decision regarding Teschen. The Poles, of course, had no way of knowing that Beneš had already persuaded the Allies to make a decision on Teschen. After a brief interval, to make it appear that due deliberation had taken place, the Allied Council of Ambassadors in Paris imposed its ‘decision’. Only then did it dawn on the Poles that at Spa they had signed a blank check. To them, Beneš’ stunning triumph was not diplomacy, it was a swindle (…) As Polish Prime Minister Wincenty Witos warned: ‘The Polish nation has received a blow which will play an important role in our relations with the Czechoslovak Republic. The decision of the Council of Ambassadors has given the Czechs a piece of Polish land containing a population which is mostly Polish…. The decision has caused a rift between these two nations which are ordinarily politically and economically united’ ( ….”[36]

    The affair soured the Prague-Warsaw relationship.
    View of Victor S. Mamatey

    Another account of the situation in 1918–1919 is given by historian Victor S. Mamatey. He notes that when the French government recognised Czechoslovakia’s right to the “boundaries of Bohemia, Moravia, and Austrian Silesia” in its note to Austria of 19 December, the Czechoslovak government acted under the impression it had French support for its claim to Cieszyn Silesia as part of Austrian Silesia. However, Paris believed it gave that assurance only against German-Austrian claims, not Polish ones. Paris, however, viewed both Czechoslovakia and Poland as potential allies against Germany and did not want to cool relations with either. Mamatey writes that the Poles “brought the matter before the peace conference that had opened in Paris on 18 January. On 29 January, the Council of Ten summoned Beneš and the Polish delegate Roman Dmowski to explain the dispute, and on 1 February obliged them to sign an agreement redividing the area pending its final disposition by the peace conference. Czechoslovakia thus failed to gain her objective in Teschen.”[29]

    With respect to the arbitration decision itself, Mamatey writes that “On 25 March, to expedite the work of the peace conference, the Council of Ten was divided into the Council of Four (The “Big Four”) and the Council of Five (the foreign ministers). Early in April the two councils considered and approved the recommendations of the Czechoslovak commission without a change – with the exception of Teschen, which they referred to Poland and Czechoslovakia to settle in bilateral negotiations.”[37] When the Polish-Czechoslovak negotiations failed, the Allied powers proposed plebiscites in the Cieszyn Silesia and also in the border districts of Orava and Spiš (now in Slovakia) to which the Poles had raised claims. In the end, however, no plebiscites were held due to the rising mutual hostilities of Czechs and Poles in Cieszyn Silesia. Instead, on 28 July 1920 the Spa Conference (also known as the Conference of Ambassadors) divided each of the three disputed areas between Poland and Czechoslovakia.

    The local Polish population felt that Warsaw had betrayed them and they were not satisfied with the division of Cieszyn Silesia. About 12,000 to 14,000 Poles were forced[38] to leave to Poland.[39] It is not quite clear how many Poles were in Zaolzie in Czechoslovakia. Estimates (depending mainly whether the Silesians are included as Poles or not)[39] range from 110,000 to 140,000 people in 1921.[40] The 1921 and 1930 census numbers are not accurate since nationality depended on self-declaration and many Poles filled in Czech nationality mainly as a result of fear of the new authorities and as compensation for some benefits. Czechoslovak law guaranteed rights for national minorities but reality in Zaolzie was quite different.[41] Local Czech authorities made it more difficult for local Poles to obtain citizenship, while the process was expedited when the applicant pledged to declare Czech nationality and send his children to a Czech school.[42] Newly built Czech schools were often better supported and equipped, thus inducing some Poles to send their children there. Czechs schools were built in ethnically almost entirely Polish municipalities.[43] This and other factors contributed to the cultural assimilation of Poles and also to significant emigration to Poland. After few years, the heightened nationalism typical for the years around 1920 receded and local Poles increasingly co-operated with Czechs. Still, Czechization was supported by Prague, which did not follow certain laws related to language, legislative and organizational issues.[41] Polish deputies in Czechoslovak National Assembly frequently tried to put those issues on agenda. One way or the other, more and more local Poles thus assimilated into the Czech population.

    Decree on the official language on the annexed territory
    “Zaolzie is ours!” – Polish newspaper Ilustrowany Kuryer Codzienny on 3 October 1938.

    Within the region originally demanded from Czechoslovakia by Nazi Germany in 1938 was the important railway junction city of Bohumín (Polish: Bogumin). The Poles regarded the city as of crucial importance to the area and to Polish interests. On 28 September, Edvard Beneš composed a note to the Polish administration offering to reopen the debate surrounding the territorial demarcation in Těšínsko in the interest of mutual relations, but he delayed in sending it in hopes of good news from London and Paris, which came only in a limited form. Beneš then turned to the Soviet leadership in Moscow, which had begun a partial mobilisation in eastern Belarus and the Ukrainian SSR on 22 September and threatened Poland with the dissolution of the Soviet-Polish non-aggression pact.[44] The Czech government was offered 700 fighter planes if room for them could be found on the Czech airfields. On 28 September, all the military districts west of the Urals were ordered to stop releasing men for leave. On 29 September, 330,000 reservists were up throughout the western USSR.[45]

    Nevertheless, the Polish Foreign Minister, Colonel Józef Beck, believed that Warsaw should act rapidly to forestall the German occupation of the city. At noon on 30 September, Poland gave an ultimatum to the Czechoslovak government. It demanded the immediate evacuation of Czechoslovak troops and police and gave Prague time until noon the following day. At 11:45 a.m. on 1 October the Czechoslovak foreign ministry called the Polish ambassador in Prague and told him that Poland could have what it wanted. The Polish Army, commanded by General Władysław Bortnowski, annexed an area of 801.5 km² with a population of 227,399 people. Administratively the annexed area was divided between two counties: Frysztat and Cieszyn County.[46] At the same time Slovakia lost to Hungary 10,390 km² with 854,277 inhabitants.

    The Germans were delighted with this outcome, and were happy to give up the sacrifice of a small provincial rail centre to Poland in exchange for the ensuing propaganda benefits. It spread the blame of the partition of the Republic of Czechoslovakia, made Poland a participant in the process and confused political expectations. Poland was accused of being an accomplice of Nazi Germany – a charge that Warsaw was hard-put to deny.[47]

    In Norway’s case, the British were preparing a full invasion themselves, and already had significant military assets in the country; in Britain and France’s case, they declared war over the rather myopic Danzig guarantee (from the perspective of May 1945, or any date since). Belgium is France’s shield, just as in 1914. Germany never attacked America at all.

    Mexico:NYT: The country that stopped reading

    Nowadays more children attend school than ever before, but they learn much less. They learn almost nothing. The proportion of the Mexican population that is literate is going up, but in absolute numbers, there are more illiterate people in Mexico now than there were 12 years ago. Even if baseline literacy, the ability to read a street sign or news bulletin, is rising, the practice of reading an actual book is not. Once a reasonably well-educated country, Mexico took the penultimate spot, out of 108 countries, in a Unesco assessment of reading habits a few years ago.

    One cannot help but ask the Mexican educational system, “How is it possible that I hand over a child for six hours every day, five days a week, and you give me back someone who is basically illiterate?”
    Despite recent gains in industrial development and increasing numbers of engineering graduates, Mexico is floundering socially, politically and economically because so many of its citizens do not read.

    Would WMD be nuclear-only – there would not be suchj a term, it would have no meaning.

    Casus belli can be anything.
    Yugoslavia and Serbia had no any WMD – did it prevent NATO attack?
    Vietnam, Korea, Nikaragua, Lybia, ….

    WMD can be a useful pretext, but it is not required, there are always many more pretexts to choose from.

    > Neither Chem nor Bio weapons have a track record of mass destruction.

    Oh, sure. So very few Vietnamese died from agent Orange, nothing to speak about. Chemical WMD as humane and safe, surething.

    > And unpredictable dispersal after delivery make them very poor battlefield weapons: you are just as likely killing your own troops instead of the enemy’s

    Drop a nuke on the battlefield – and you would have PREDICTABLE result of killing your own troops.
    So, by your definition, nukes are not WMD.

    > killed at most about 5,000 people.

    So very few, nothing to bother. Just some 5 thousand human-like beings, no one civilized should care. Of course.

    Nagasaki nuclear blast… “Casualty estimates for immediate deaths vary widely, ranging from 22,000 to 75,000”.

    So, 5000 is not enought to bother, but 22000 is oh no evil WMD ? Okay. Bombing of Dresden killed 23 to 25 thousand Germans. Was Dresden bombed by WMD then ?

    Tokyo bombing took about 100K lives (at least 80K bodies were foud and burried). It is much more than in Nagasaki. So, was Tokyo bombed by WMD then?

    Or maybe body accounting is a bad criteria here and WMD is not defined by mere body count?

    [In particular, they fretted that merging chemical with biological with nuclear weapons in the public mind had distorted the debate over how to handle Saddam Hussein’s unconventional arsenal. WMD implied nuclear for the untutored, demanding major military action to prevent an arms race in the Gulf region.]

    [The fine folks at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, who publish the authoritative guide to Deadly Arsenals periodically, put it best when they issued the 2005 edition. The coauthors disavowed WMD because the term, though convenient, conflates very different types of weaponry entailing very different characteristics, effects, and moral implications.]

    [More precise language, argued the Carnegie team, begets more prudent deliberations. If so, disaggregating these munitions for analytical purposes helps restore precision to debates over nonproliferation and counterproliferation. Deadly Arsenals maintains that nuclear weapons are the only true weapons of mass destruction. ]

It was also about ideals: America stood for something larger than itself—for freedom, human rights and the rule of law as universal principles . . . By the end of World War II, we and our British allies had in effect conquered a large part of the world. We could have become permanent occupiers, and/or installed subservient puppet governments, the way the Soviet Union did in Eastern Europe. And yes, we did do that in some developing countries; our history with, say, Iran is not at all pretty. But what we mainly did instead was help defeated enemies get back on their feet, establishing democratic regimes that shared our core values and became allies in protecting those values. The Pax Americana was a sort of empire; certainly America was for a long time very much first among equals. But it was by historical standards a remarkably benign empire, held together by soft power and respect rather than force.” Paul Krugman

    When ‘our’ asses (I was not of draft age myself) were on the line and ‘we’ were being drafted to pursue these wars, “Americans” got out into the streets and protested a war or two. We’re now at war for 25 years (starting with Iraq War I) and there’s hardly a peep out of the population. I agree with you that we always voted for the peace candidate and got cucked, but the whole thing is still in our hand. If we really were against it all how come all these neocon politicians always get voted in like McCain, Graham, and all the rest of criminal bastards Republican and Democrat? And though I, of course agree about how and why the machine keeps killing and who the operators are, no matter what arguments anyone makes, it’s still in our hands more than in anyone else’s.

    I always ask myself, what would I answer to one of the people from the countries we brutalize on a regular basis, if they asked me why I didn’t do more to stop the wanton killing we perpetrated on them and on their families.

    Never heard of him, or you.

    As a History Prof, I find my American Students, increasingly illiterate. They are incapable of reading a chapter in the text; they either do not understand what they have read, or they do not attempt to read it. They have 2 days to read the chapter (30 pages or so). Yes they have other courses, & a few have after school jobs, but they are attending College, and not pressed very hard. They are not reading at grade School level.

    In the elite Ivy League Universities, (such as the one I attended), the students are more competent. Nevertheless, it is my opinion, (and that of Lev Bronstein), that literacy is not a strong skill in America. Having attended schools in both countries, and tought in one other Country, I have not experienced Mexicans being less literate than their American cousins to the North.

    I will share a short story: In a recent History Class there was one student (I will identify her – without fear of being politically incorrest), she was tall, Blond, AMERICAN, stunning, and had read the required material & answered most of my questions.

    At the end of the class, as the students filed past my desk, she paused, and said: “I know what you are going to ask me. My father is an American diplomat, and I attended school in Holland.”

    I trust my own Heart, and defend my Mexican Cousins against slander & disrespect. This website discusses Literacy & IQ – as rated by who? Which large nation is a complete puppet to the Zionist Oligarchs? Which – one time World Power grovels at the feet of & spreads their ass cheeks for the Rothschilds & Epsteins, & Maxwells, Ehud Barak, Katsav, Polanski, et. al.?

    Mexicans construct our cities and houses, grow our food, and clean our toilets. Mexicans do not consider Americans to be more intelligent, or stronger physically or morally than they are.

    Americans, protect the Opium Fields in Afghanistan, and purchase most of the opiates. and steal, and attempt to steal the Oil that belongs to Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, and Venezuela. Re-read Fred Reed’s recent article.

    Americans are Slaves, but do not know it. At least the Africans understood that they were slaves.

    Now, who is more intelligent?

    My fellow American citizens must display their courage and intelligence, by Restoring Our Republic. Only by combat – in the field – against our Zionist Oligarch overlords/Slavemasters – may we regain our Sovereignty, self-Respect, and as we tread the road to Liberty, our Intelligence.

    > WMD implied nuclear for the untutored

    And that is exactly what you demnstrate here. So that your article calls you untutored.

    > The coauthors disavowed WMD

    In other words, they say 0 there is no such thing, as WMD. It is a made-up term lacking any pactical sense.

    Exactly. If you say “only nukes are WMD” then the very WMD term becomes redundant and confusing. You mean nukes – go on and say nukes.

    But as far as the term exists – it means all those weapons, not only those you like.

    > Agent Orange (herbicide) is a WMD – then the herbicide Roundup/ glyphosate is also WMD

    If it will be weaponized and will induce cancer and genetic mutation on thousands and thousands for decades and decades – then it would be WMD, like the Agent Orange.

    Even chlorine that is vastly used for water desinfecion can be and actually was used as chemical weapon. Since then defense measures were developed.
    But defense does not mean weapon was not weapon.

    Knives can still kill people, albeit medieval knights in plate armor could only laught at those.
    Hand gun can still kill people, albeit tank crew could only laugh at it.

    Inventing defense is good, but it does not mean weapon is not weapon and kill is not kill.

    But of course, for your preferred definitions those Vietnamese still many decades later dying of cancer – white men should not care.

    The US troops in Iraq killed people on the street in drive bys as they were approaching a action. In a documentary they were talking to people in a shop with washing machine and fridges displayed on the street suddenly there was shooting and the camera hit the deck when they refocused a man who had been looking at kitchen appliance was lying shot through the head. A US armoured personnel carrier had rolled by and they obviously blasted away the fellows brains for no reason. Anydriver (or pregnant wife in the passenger seat) in a car that got got a tad close to a US vehicle on the roads could with impunity be shot through the head.

    https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/COLONEL-S-TOUGHEST-DUTY-Battalion-commander-2601938.php
    Neither convoy stopped to help the civilians the soldiers had shot. It would be pretty much impossible to ascertain which U.S. unit was passing through the area at the time and track down those who did the shooting, Wood said. “Seems like I pick up a lot of people’s pieces around here,” he said. “These … patrols that drive around and shoot people have been a thorn in everybody’s side all year.”

    Other members of the 2-7 battalion are equally concerned about the incidents.

    “I hate the fact that American soldiers ride around killing civilians,” said Command Sgt. Major Samuel Coston, 44, from North Carolina. “All you got to say is ‘I feel threatened,’ ‘the car was driving aggressively,’ and you shoot. They have no remorse. They just keep on driving.”

    And Fred gets upset because a curious woman wants to look at a corpse that had been stored in one of their back rooms and whose death she and the rest of the night shift had nothing to do with. You know it was men that killed the Iraqi, even the Manson killings Tex Watson inflicted the fatal wounds, but the idea of demonic killer women is fascinating and makes a great story, especially if they are young.

So, they are presumed to be educated, college + grad school. In Russia a person like that, be it post-doc or professor, who knows nothing about classical music (never heard of Handel, Vivaldi, Beethoven, or Albinoni, and never heard any of their pieces), knows nothing about literature (never read Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Dickens, Shakespeare, Faulkner, etc.), does not know that human civilization is ~ 8 thousand years older than the US, cannot find Ghana or Luxembourg on the map, or uses the word “Nambia”, like someone we all know, is considered a moron.

    In Civil War Spain, the Left killed priests and political opponents after gaining control of an area.

Both sides committed atrocities and the death toll was fairly even with just shy of 1 million dead.

The Human misery caused by those past Presidents lining their pockets has been eliminated. The Degradation of Mexico was stopped in its tracks by the cancellation of oil contracts and the rescue of PEMEX (we just discovered 2 huge oil and gas deposits). Mexico’s backwardness will use it’s newly discovered Lithium, the largest in the world, we’re already discussing, how to use it to expand the process and build manufacturing or batteries and cars.

    The banks will accept our inferior peso’s backed by Lithium and Oil production!

    America has never been interested in peace . Peace has been anathema to it from the very beginning ,going back k to the early days of the founding of the colonies .

    Plenty of opportunities arose in 20th century and 21 st century when deal could have been made to prevent war . America has always chosen war.

    Expansion of NATO is the natural expression of that ingrained impulse and of that trait .

    About your faith, I can understand that you have to disavow something that has been the very foundation underlying American power and American claims of being the harbinger of the good stuff to the rest of the world.

  273. War on Terror is a 911 fraudster!

    War on Terror is actually war on Islam!
    ISLAM AGAINST TERRORISM •

    [MORE]

    1. Terrorism is above all murder. Murder is strictly forbidden in the Qur’an. Qur’an 6:151 says, “and do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” (i.e. murder is forbidden but the death penalty imposed by the state for a crime is permitted). 5:53 says, “… whoso kills a soul, unless it be for murder or for wreaking corruption in the land, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and he who saves a life, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.”
    2. If the motive for terrorism is religious, it is impermissible in Islamic law. It is forbidden to attempt to impose Islam on other people. The Qur’an says, “There is no compulsion in religion. The right way has become distinct from error.” (-The Cow, 2:256). Note that this verse was revealed in Medina in 622 AD or after and was never abrogated by any other verse of the Quran. Islam’s holy book forbids coercing people into adopting any religion. They have to willingly choose it.
    3. Islamic law forbids aggressive warfare. The Quran says, “But if the enemies incline towards peace, do you also incline towards peace. And trust in God! For He is the one who hears and knows all things.” (8:61) The Quran chapter “The Cow,” 2:190, says, “Fight in the way of God against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! God loveth not aggressors.”
    4. In the Islamic law of war, not just any civil engineer can declare or launch a war. It is the prerogative of the duly constituted leader of the Muslim community that engages in the war. Nowadays that would be the president or prime minister of the state, as advised by the mufti or national jurisconsult.
    5. The killing of innocent non-combatants is forbidden. According to Sunni tradition, ‘Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, the first Caliph, gave these instructions to his armies: “I instruct you in ten matters: Do not kill women, children, the old, or the infirm; do not cut down fruit-bearing trees; do not destroy any town . . . ” (Malik’s Muwatta’, “Kitab al-Jihad.”)
    6. Terrorism or hirabah is forbidden in Islamic law, which groups it with brigandage, highway robbery and extortion rackets– any illicit use of fear and coercion in public spaces for money or power. The principle of forbidding the spreading of terror in the land is based on the Qur’an (Surah al-Ma’ida 5:33–34). Prominent [pdf] Muslim legal scholar Sherman Jackson writes, “The Spanish Maliki jurist Ibn `Abd al-Barr (d. 464/ 1070)) defines the agent of hiraba as ‘Anyone who disturbs free passage in the streets and renders them unsafe to travel, striving to spread corruption in the land by taking money, killing people or violating what God has made it unlawful to violate is guilty of hirabah . . .”
    7. Sneak attacks are forbidden. Muslim commanders must give the enemy fair warning that war is imminent. The Prophet Muhammad at one point gave 4 months notice.
    8. The Prophet Muhammad counseled doing good to those who harm you and is said to have commanded, “Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
    9. The Qur’an demands of believers that they exercise justice toward people even where they have reason to be angry with them: “And do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.”[5:8]
    10. The Qur’an assures Christians and Jews of paradise if they believe and do good works, and commends Christians as the best friends of Muslims. I wrote elsewhere, “Dangerous falsehoods are being promulgated to the American public. The Quran does not preach violence against Christians.
    Quran 5:69 says (Arberry): “Surely they that believe, and those of Jewry, and the Christians, and those Sabeaans, whoso believes in God and the Last Day, and works righteousness–their wage waits them with their Lord, and no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow.”
    In other words, the Quran promises Christians and Jews along with Muslims that if they have faith and works, they need have no fear in the afterlife. It is not saying that non-Muslims go to hell– quite the opposite.
    When speaking of the 7th-century situation in the Muslim city-state of Medina, which was at war with pagan Mecca, the Quran notes that the polytheists and some Arabian Jewish tribes were opposed to Islam, but then goes on to say:
    5:82. ” . . . and you will find the nearest in love to the believers [Muslims] those who say: ‘We are Christians.’ That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud.”
    So the Quran not only does not urge Muslims to commit violence against Christians, it calls them “nearest in love” to the Muslims! The reason given is their piety, their ability to produce holy persons dedicated to God, and their lack of overweening pride.
    (For a modernist, liberal interpretation, see this pdf file, “Jihad and the Islamic Law of War.”

He has, by his own admission, read only three books: Don Quixote, an abridged version of which he was required to read in high school; a biography or autobiography of Mick Foley, the American professional wrestler, who is one of his heroes; and a book, perhaps a graphic novel, about Solid Snake, the video game character. That’s it.
    Incidentally, he and his Mexican friends are steeped in American pop culture and know far more about it than I do. He’s not stupid — far from it. But he just doesn’t read books.

    Open border globalists and Demoncrats want a porous border: it destabilizes the U.S., increases democrat voters/illegals, brings child sex slaves to the Standard Hotel so Adam Schiff can rape them, brings in cocaine, heroin and marijuana, fruit pickers, etc.
    When the elites in D.C. are totally corrupt, as in Obama-Killary, how can the Mexicans contain the situation when they have no partner? Corruption is mutual in this situation.
    Democrats can smell the absolute power that comes from demographic change. This is incredibly corrupting.

    Since the anglosaxon diaspora undertook to conquer all of North America and federalized in the “civil war” – since the Red Indian nations were liquidated, since bounties were paid to Anglo Indian hunters, yes, in the California budget, 10 dollars per scalp. Since the sutlers of the civil war made common cause with wall street and London and big money, since zionists were curated as an intelop, since the forward operating base Palestine become Israel…i can go on. It’s not Jews or Jewish, it’s greedy bankers and the nazis. Nazi, including Jewish nazis (well aren’t they?) tend to flock to the big money Jews and Money, yeah, but it’s not the Jews man, they’re being used by Jewish nazis.

    Don’t forget Wurzburg or the one thousand other German cities that had their citizens, their cathedrals and their art firebombed to oblivion. Talk about disparate impact! Where are their reparations?

  291. @Jay Igaboo

    The Cold War, founded on a lie of a Soviet Ambition to conquer first Europe and then the World, was planned from 1942 onwards. There never was a threat for NATO to defend Europe against, as was well known in NATO HQ from the start.

    As a National Service squaddie I could see that we were a joke army. We had a winter exercise in Lüneberger Heide and when the temperature dropped to -16C none of our transport would start! And we were supposed to be there to stop the Red Army. After a couple of days the exercise was called off because the MO threatened to resign were it not. That was how well we were equipped.

    I have no idea how many billions of man*hours of time conscription wasted but it must have been quite a drag on the recovery from the war. NATO is support for the US’s and to a lesser extent the MIC of other countries and the US Empire’s Foreign Legion. It never was a defensive alliance, except for a bit of doubt about the Korean War, it has never defended anyone against anything, it has only ever attacked.

  292. To be fair, I think that the truth is that both The Soviets (particularly Russia, AND the NATO countries had good reason to be fearful of each other.
    From the Russian viewpoint, they were surrounded by real or potential enemies in the north from the Baltic to The Aleutian Islands off Alaska, and in the south from Germany to China.
    From the West’s POV, they were threatened by an expansionist and tyrannical dictatorship.

    Given that we were both in possession of The Big Bomb, I think that despite the vast monies spent by NATO and The Warsaw Pact nations, this mutual fear served the very useful purpose of preventing either side from using it, allbeit that it was a close-run thing.
    I was a post-NS squaddie for 11 years as in the Para Reg and elsewhere, and although we were all gung-ho for action and hoping for some bust war to go to, NO ONE wanted WW3 to kick off.
    I always remember how quiet, chastened even, all the those hoping for a chance to be hero’s were after our first NBC lesson. I was just a young buck of 17 therefore boundlessly optimistic and boundlessly brainwashed, but the few older, married men with children were very, very pensive indeed.

    We all knew nobody would win. I also served in a stay-behind unit in the event (certainty!) of being over-run. I also did a scheme where the exercise narrative was that we had been overrun, and we were dropped with Noddy suits on mopping-up operations AFTER a rapid withdrawal/retreat of NATO forces to allow for a “local” nuke to vapourise the Soviet hordes.
    I don’t know if this WAS official doctrine, or just some imaginative/bored/ambitious general’s fantasy.
    At the same time British politicians were swearing on their children’s lives that WE would never use The Bomb in a first strike!

    I don’t trust any bastard with a lust for great power over others, they have no power over themselves, and are often functioning psychopaths.
    As it happened, I never fired a shot in anger in my 11 years, which included the only year in it’s existence that the British Army (claimed to) never lost man to enemy action. My only active service was a very short and uneventful few days in Londonderry.
    It pissed me off then, but now I’m glad that I never had to kill some poor stiff from Moscow or a farmer’s labourer from the steppes.
    Generals and politicians, well, I’m not so sure!

    … the German nazis were only one manifestation of a deep anglosaxon nazi elite, a secret elite that predated Hitler’ rise and paid for it too.

    Please see …

    Sure, this is well known and -methink- there is no need to read further. Anglosaxon polit style you find everywhere if you want. Call it deep state, “nazi elite” (whatever that means), Jews or Jesuits. That proves to nothing. Manifestations of the human mind to categories movements to personal preferences how to call (and eventually hate) an abstract enemy.

    For me the pattern is important. That is always similar. Whether Rockefeller finance Hitler to gain from war, the bastards sell drugs from middle east to fight Nicaragua to suck it out, Soros floods europe with migrants to speculate in real estate or Erdogan supports war to Syria to sell the robbed oil. Still the same game. Easy to see, except for the stupid German politicians who think – after moving to Berlin- that they can establish a 4th Reich.

    Yes, Mr G, you and I do not need to read further. But some others may need to do this, to read more.

    I might suggest also Tarpley’s : “George Bush, The Unauthorized Biography”.

    By “nazi elite” I mean those grey clubs, der verein, der Geheimbund oder der geheimer Verein, of finance and violence who care only for greed, money and power, and care nothing of their brothers. “nazi” has for me little to do with Hitler and his time, but instead means the sociopaths who would murder slaves for a dollar.

    And yes, it’s pretty much all about the money.

    My suggestion to YOU is that you learn how verb tenses are formed; the suffix “ed” after the verb signifies that the action the verb describes happened IN THE PAST. I stopped SERVING 40 years ago when I realised how corrupt and venal were the politicians who sent men to war were.

    When ‘our’ asses (I was not of draft age myself) were on the line and ‘we’ were being drafted to pursue these wars, “Americans” got out into the streets and protested a war or two. We’re now at war for 25 years (starting with Iraq War I) and there’s hardly a peep out of the population.

    Well Chris, a society of our type, is controlled by the media. Since the Vietnam war was putatively against the commies, the Jews who own the media were against that war. Jews like communism, it’s their Frankenstein’s monster. They created it and fostered it and lovingly nurtured it until it had driven into the ground hundreds of millions of the ‘best of the Gentiles’. Such a deal!’ What’s not to like?

    So Abby Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and all the other J-supremacists were frothing their bile against the war. They put dead American soldiers on the Talmud Vision every evening for Americans to look at. There was blood and gore in my childhood living room.

    But that was a war that Jews did not like, and so they used their complete control of our media and universities to agitate against it.

    I know today it seems incomprehensible that Jews, somehow, like in some alternative universe, might actually be against a war – seeing them today. But all the wars being fought today by the ZUSA, (just like both World Wars) are all being fought specifically to benefit Jewish supremacists, (at the direct expense of the American people). (Duh)

    Just imagine if the Eternal War decided to target our actual enemy in the Middle East. Imagine if demands were made to extradite the cowardly murderers and war criminals responsible for the USS Liberty. Imagine if sanctions were applied, and all aid withheld, and an actual president of the actual United States, demanded Israel comply or Shock and Awe was headed their way.

    The shrieking would be earth shattering. Every congress-critter would howl and contort in grotesqueries. Every dean of every university would demand the dogs of war be leashed and that any tenured professor that didn’t toe the line, be fired forthwith! ‘How dare you threaten the ‘shining light unto all nations’?!

    Our society would rend itself at the seams, much like it’s doing already, but with a thousands times the gusto.

    So, as long as all our wars are wars to benefit Israel and Jewish supremacists, then all is well at the (((media and universities))). And when looking for someone to blame it all on, no problem! Just have the hacks write that all the wars are all a direct consequence of White American men being intractable Nazis who love to bomb people, (because they’re Nazis after all). That should do it.

    An anti-war movement (lacking ownership of cable channels), needs iron voices of integrity. Instead we have antiwar.com, (which won’t even recognize who did 9/11), or Fredo here, whose tepid words directed at Israel are like a kitten mewling as the DU drops on Fallujah.

    Even worse, really. Fredo knows (((who))) are responsible for these evil wars. He knows, and yet he blames (one of) their victims, the American working white man. The American white working man who was the cannon fodder in both World Wars to benefit Jewish supremacists. The American working man who was the cannon fodder in Viet Nam. The American working man who is the cannon fodder in the Eternal Wars for Israel.

    He did it! He’s a Nazi!

    He doesn’t want to become Mexican, and so fuck him and his orange Nazi leader!!!!

    Huh Fredo?

    @J. Gutierrez

    Always enjoy your passion brother!

    Same to you, brother J.G!

    Hey, I just wanted to give you my opinion on current events in Mexico and the U.S. relationship with the new president.

    It’s funny, (or perhaps not), but when ever I read the lies they tell about Mexico, I find myself wondering what J.G’s take on it would be. Unz is blessed to have your refreshing and local perspective.

    I know you read about the Sinaloa Cartel event with the Mexican Military and then just a couple of weeks latter the LeBaron ambush and murder of women and children.

    Yes, Fredo even wrote an article on it. (I don’t always have the time to comment, but I do a lot of reading at Unz ; ) [I hope he’s not going to charge me for that ; ]

    In any case, does anyone know exactly what went down?

    I read something about “Los Jaguares” a cell of the Sinaloa Cartel, as perhaps the perps, but other than some vague talk about some arrests (patsies?), I still don’t know who killed those women and children, or why. I did hear that they were shot at close range, so mistaken identities seems out.

    D.O.J. had signed a contract with the Sinaloa Cartel that allowed them to ship loads of cocaine into the U.S. in exchange for providing information to the DEA on rival cartels.

    No one is more corrupt than the acronyms of Satan in the ZUS power structure. DEA, CIA, FBI, ATF, NSA, PNAC, AIPAC, et al ad nauseam.

    It may have been Mexican cartels who murdered those women and children. I wouldn’t put it past them, but even if they did so, compare that heinous crime with the ZUS government’s beyond heinous crimes in the 21st century. Perhaps it was the cartel who murdered 9 women and children, but the ZUS government has slaughtered ten thousand times that many women and children, and done so with the sanctimonious belligerence of a psychotic fiend. In fact, the callous evil of the ZUS implies, that ‘if our bombs slaughter you and your family, then you had it coming!’ And that goes for Dresden to Fallujah to sixteen year old American boys the ZUS considers inconvenient.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdulrahman_al-Awlaki

    Oddly, back when Fredo was sane, (before his TDS ; ), he penned some of the most wry condemnations of the ZUS droning weddings and ‘bug-splatting’ children, that I remember reading. Ahh, those were the days..

    Ex President Felipe Calderon being connected to the CIA and DEA during his presidency.

    Says it all, eh J.G?

    (btw, I’m of the ‘legalize it’ bent. And the death penalty for selling to children).

    In any case, there’s no organizations more corrupt than the CIA or DEA. [RIP Gary Webb]

    The U.S. is looking for a trophy in the war against the Cartels, what better than to arrest one or two Corrupt Mexcican presidents!

    Hopefully, if these officials are corrupt, it will be the Mexican government that arrests and imprisons them. That’s how it should be done.

    I always thought both events were “False Flag” operations, and the LeBaron event could have been a staged event or a real murder, but never by the Cartels. I said it first here, brother, now let’s see what happens in the coming days.

    Ok brother, hopefully we’ll find out what actually happened. But I doubt it. When high-profile murders like this happen, it seems they’re always guarded by an army of lies. Even now, we have no motive for the Las Vegas massacre. It isn’t because they don’t know, the reason they’re not saying, is because it doesn’t serve any agenda of theirs to say, and so we get crickets. I suspect it will be the same thing here. (personally, I think if they could blame them all on ‘white supremacists’, then that’s what they’d do ; ).

    I lived there 50 years my brother and I wish some of you guys could come here and experience what Fred, I and many other people that grew up somewhere else experience. I’m lucky to have family here and it made my transition easier. He’s is not being a traitor or hating on Americans, he just expresses himself that way because he knows what most people in the U.S. think about Mexicans.

    I envy you, (and Fredo and Jessie Ventura and all the other expatriates) that have managed to escape the insanity that is the ZUS of A. It is my full intention to do so, as soon as I can extricate myself from the exigencies of earning a living and caring for loved ones that need me.

    For what I can glimmer, is that most Americans harbor no fear or anger or certainly, no hatred for Mexico or Mexicans. Ditto for Muslims and Asians and Indians or anyone really, who posses no threat to them or their loved ones or communities. Mexicans are generally hard working and pleasant people, with (what I’ve seen) as having a great sense of humor and friendly demeanor.

    It isn’t Mexicans or Muslims or Martians that Americans resent. Rather, for the record, what it is J.G., is the collective and accumulative effect of all of these people’s coming into American communities and transforming them into places the native-born Americans no longer recognize. Nor feel welcome in. Forget the treasonous evil of Affirmative Action, and how that belittles and fucks over all poor and working class white men, and just consider the trajectory of a nation (and a civilization) that seems hell-bent on genocide.

    That is the problem J.G. Not any hostility to a Mexican, but yes, there is hostility to tens of millions of Mexicans taking over entire communities, and when they do so, it is with a mathematical certainty that they will then vote for Mexican nationals as their leaders, and will agitate for all things Mexican. Just as Somalis in Minnesota will, once they achieve political power, use that power to benefit and advance all things Somali. Now, that isn’t always a zero sum game, but occasionally it is, and when it is, then it would be literally, suicidally insane for the dying white populations of those comminutes to welcome their ethnic and cultural replacements. No?

    And perhaps more to the point, what the massive and transformational effects of Third World immigration into all dying (((murdered))) Western nations will amount to, is more politicians like Merkel and Macron and, horrifyingly Hillary Clinton.

    Because you see, J.G., sadly Mexicans (like Blacks and Muslims and tragically all other immigrants), always vote for the politician most likely to further fuck over ‘whitey’. (Working class white men, who’re the only group of people in the ZUS who it’s perfectly OK to fuck over officially in every way possible, by denying promotions or a thousand other aggressions, both overt and not so much).

    And it is these relentlessly fucked-over men and boys, who used to have a voice in the sublime and sardonic prose of Fred Reed.

    So it just stings that much more, to read one of the erstwhile voices of sanity, vis-a-vis the thongs of Oprah-bots- howling their unhinged hatred for all things white men- join that particular chorus. And rail against the white men stuck in the ZUSA, without the wherewithal to escape to beautiful Mexico. Where no doubt the tenor of the place lacks that certain grinding ethno-hatred on acid, we all get to marinate in, north of the border.

    Rurik my brother from another mother…I feel your pain! For the last 30 years, the world has been plagued by a US/British/Zionist constructed virus called Neoliberalism. The Politics of Poison, Power, and Pollution – Neoliberalism – serves only the Right-Wing Oligarchs who created it! NeoLiberalism is socialism for the wealthy!

    The Neoliberal Ideological Agenda effects not only working class people but the environment and social programs. The Oligarchs funded the climate change deniers, they are responsible for union-busting policies, recommendations for privatization, deregulation, fiscal austerity measures by the government, low taxes for corporations, a gutting of social programs, and crumbling infrastructure.
    Neoliberalism started with Reagan and Thatcher. In Canada, it was in hyper-drive with Harper. In Mexico, Carlos Salinas de Gortari, through a fraudulent election, came to power and began implementing his brand of Neoliberal policies. Right wing think tanks were set up and funded by the Oligarchs – the oil companies, the Koch Brothers, and other large corporations. Gradually, their right-wing policies were released to the media, the Universities, and to Politicians until they took hold in Society and became accepted policy: vis-à-vis a lot of reassuring lies.

    Warren Blumenfeld said: “Neoliberalism rests on the foundation of “meritocracy”: the notion that individuals are basically born onto a relatively level playing field, and that success or failure depends on the individual’s personal merit, motivation, intelligence, ambition, and abilities. Those who are, however, born or enter into difficult circumstances can choose to “pull themselves up by their boot straps,” and they can rise to the heights that their abilities and merit can take them. People, therefore, possess “personal responsibility” for their life’s course.”

    “The neoliberal battle cry of “liberty” and “freedom” through “personal responsibility.” How “free” are we when the upper 1-10% of our population controls approximately 80-90 percent of the accumulated wealth? How “free” are we when these corporations, many of them foreign-owned, are granted enormous tax breaks and subsidies? Then taxpayers are forced pay for the reduced revenues flowing to government with huge cuts to our public services like infrastructure, health care, and education?

    Neoliberalism was imported to Mexico and was introduced as the new economic ideology of the Conservative Party (PRI) but it was also partly adopted by some Liberal Parties – the past (PAN) Fox and Calderon governments are a case in point. The financial problems began in 1993 with the sale of ‘state owned companies”, by Salinas de Gortari. He sold Mexico’s Telephone System to Carlos Slim, the Banking System to friends and rich Mexican families and 950 other state owned companies. The Banking system was run into the ground by the new owners within his 6 years as president. Ernesto Cedillo inherited a banking crisis that required a 50 million dollar Bank bailout, of which the bank owners used to make more loans to friends and family before they sold the banks to private banking corporations. The bailout was quickly added to Mexico’s external debt for the citizens to pay.

    Vicente Fox (PAN) won the next election and became the first non-PRI president in Mexico. He is currently being investigated for corruption and accepting bribes from the Mexican Cartels among other things. Felipe Calderon (PAN) won the next election (with wide spread voter fraud) and is currently being investigated for his ties to the Sinaloa Cartel, Money Laundering, Accepting Bribes, among other criminal activity. His top Law Enorcement official Garcia Luna was arrested a couple weeks ago and charged with drug dealing and money laundering. Enrique Pena Nieto (PRI) won the next election (with wide spread voter fraud) and he and his associates are being investigate for corruption, taking bribes, accepting 100 million dollars from the Sinaloa Cartel and other crimes involving PEMEX.

    Since the Reagan Administration adopted the Neoliberal model, you can track the same types of crimes in Mexico as in the United States. Drug and Weapons trafficking under the Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama. Bank Bailouts, the Panama Papers, the Mortgage Crash, etc. all benefit the “Rich Political” class.

    According to Tariq Ali, Neoliberalism is a “culture of narcissism” and it’s directly responsible for the increasing rise of income inequality in developed nations. Nowhere is this more evident than in the U.S. and in the U.K. Canada and Mexico came on the scene later but we also saw rising income inequality. Working people and our social programs were ruthlessly sacrificed on the altar of corporate profit.

    Despite the fact that Neliberalism (trickle-down economics) has been debunked by large organizations who used to believe in it, the US and Canada still subscribe to the debunked economic policies of the right wing oligarchs who created it. Mexico elected a new President last year, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (MORENA) and he has moved our economic stratagem towards a more Nationalistic high-bread of “Old Capitalist Ideals” that incorporates “Social Programs” within that system… where profits benefit the citizens and not the rich 1% as before. Mexico is investing in it’s State Owned Companies (Oil/Gas/Electricity) keeping our resources and profits, created a farming program that finances the production of crops, free Health Care and Medicine, scholarships to universities and technical schools for students that can’t afford it, building a Banking network that will support these programs and many new programs that benefit the less fortunate. Here is a link to 10 new projects of already started this year including an option to the Panama’s Canal long wait! Sorry it’s in Spanish.

    “Mexico’s President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, is an ardent believer that governments should do more than play a passive role in fixing market failures, and be allowed to embrace their entrepreneurial spirit to steer the direction of innovation and economic growth.” Give tax breaks or higher wages to the poor, and the economy will grow. Give tax breaks or higher incomes to the rich, and you reduce economic growth.

    The People of the US are being manipulated so much by the current illegal alien problem and the “white genocide” propaganda that you are not focusing on the Neoliberal assault on your economy. The key to make a change in the US, is what Mexico did, elect a president that is neither Democrat or Republican and trash the neoliberal economic policies!!!

    You guys can do it brother, like Mexico was being destroyed, the US is going through the same thing! You might need to start thinking Immigration, if things don’t change there, my brother! You are not alone!

    With love from beautiful Mexico…J.G.

I did hear that they were shot at close range, so mistaken identities seems out.

    I see both incidents as being orchestrated by the “Mexican Right Wing Parties” with the help of the US Ambassador and DEA/CIA assets. “False Flag” events that could be used to solicit US intervention and create an event so bloody and tragic that they could be used against the new president, which they tried. The MSM in the US as well as Mexico came out and criticized his policies in what looked like well planned, coordinated effort. Trump offered military support to which the Mexican president thanked him and kindly refused. The right wing politicians (led by ex-president Felipe Calderon) were quick to criticize his stance against US involvement in Mexican affairs, began insinuating the government was protecting the cartels.

    At the same time right wing governors from the northern Mexican states began supporting a US intervention, and there was talk of separating from the Federal Government. Sonora, Chihuahua, Cuahuila, Taumalipas and Nuevo Leon (where I live) all governed by opposition parties (PRI/PAN) began pushing a US intervention agenda. The northern states of Sonora, Chihuahua and Cuahuila are rich in mineral resources, mining gold, silver, copper and iron ore. Taumalipas and Nuevo Leon have the largest deposit of oil and gas (the Burgos Quencka) in north America (which comes close to my ranch) ;-). The US has very little oil and gas left, the fracking wells do not produce the same as a normal well. The Republicans approved a change to a law that prohibited the sale of US oil overseas sponsored by Obama, which quickly sold the US Strategic Oil Reserves to China.

    The secession talks by Mexico’s northern states and Trump’s Military intervention offer is not a coincidence. The Sinaloa Confrontation (False Flag) failed to allow the US intervention because the Mexican president released El Chapo’s son avoiding the planned blood bath. The Lebaron massacre seems to be planned in order to force a US Military intervention (religious, American women and children murdered by supposedly Cartel members), but the Mexican president stood strong against it. The video shot by Julian LeBaron of the burnt SUV shows no sign of burned bodies, while he is filming he talks to a news reporter and shows no sign of emotional stress normally seen in people that are witnessing the murder of loved ones. This makes me think the massacre was faked, Mexican news media publish gross pictures of butchered bodies all the time, but not one picture has been published of any of the victims.

    The Lebaron’s were quick to ask the US government to intervene in the case and put the Cartels on the terrorists list, which is not something that comes to mind when you are experiencing such a loss. They were all over the MSM trying to justify something that had not been proven, how did they come to the conclusion it was the Cartels? The Mexican people were quick to condemn them, but to this day their lobbying continues.

    Mexico stands strong against any US intervention in Mexican territories because we have seen what can happen, one just needs to look at Iraq, Libya and Syria. We are also very well aware of the northern states have been talking to the US government requesting intervention. One very important piece of information came out because of these incidents, it has been reported that Mexico has the largest Lithium deposits in the world, coincidentally located in the northern states of Sonora and Chihuahua where this incident occurred.

    American intervention in Mexico’s northern states makes a lot of sense now, not only would the US gain more territory, but they would control the largest Lithium deposit in the world and have access to the huge oil/gas deposits in Taumalipas and Nuevo Leon. No one has reported on the LeBaron properties, do they sit on deposits of Lithium? In Mexico the Federal Government and the people own all the mineral resources so the LeBarons would not receive any financial compensation, but they would become richer than their wildest dreams if the US annexed their state.

    I believe the women and children are in a safe place at another cult site, one of many established throughout Latin America. The LeBaron’s have a history of violence and murder which include their own family members, so I wouldn’t put it pass them, to actually sacrifice those people in the form of a “Blood Atonement” which they believe in.

    I hope this gives you a little bit more information, than the lies the US MSM use to create division throughout the world.

    Mexican’s will never support a US Military invasion, never my brother, I’m not fucking lying when I say that I and the majority of Mexicans love the people of the US, but one foot from a US soldier on Mexican land will change that to hatred and revenge! Enough of our wealth was taken in 1848 by a greedy US government and I have in my possession a Spanish Land Grant or 26,000 acres in Nueces County, TX. They were forced off by Texas Rangers paid by the King Ranch. I have no desire to be humiliated by an invading army looking to steal more property, so I’m locked and loaded and ready for what comes on my property.

    Take care my brother, I stand with the German, the Irish, the American Indian, the Mexican, the Cuban and all the people that were invaded, raped, tortured and murdered by the Anglo/Zionist British/Israel Supremacists that have controlled the world, and still do through their proxy the United States of Zion!

The Germans under Hitler thought no such thing. Hitler praised other races, like the Chinese for example. The German army had 90,000 quarter Jews and 60,000 half Jews. The Waffen SS volunteers consisted of 40% non-German, to fight the spread of Bolshevism. The quote above is typical of the victor’s propaganda.

    NeoLiberalism is socialism for the wealthy!

    I humbly suggest it’s more than that, J.G., it’s also a collective spiritual rot.

    The Oligarchs funded the climate change deniers,

    Well, OK.. but I too am a ‘climate change denier’.

    One of my personal anguishes is that my species is slated to utterly wipe on most wildlife on this planet. It’s beyond madness and it’s the human species worst sin imaginable, that we’d sit by and allow the infinite greed in the black human heart to asphalt-over every last place where wildlife flourishes, with more and more and more bipedal consumer unit$.

    The planet’s oceans are already polluted. You can’t eat too much fish or you’ll get mercury poisoning. Species are being wiped out right and left in our insane imperative to demand more and more and infinitely more people.

    Who needs rhinos grazing around on all that land, when you can replace them with humans, that can be taxed and consume and generate funds?

    As the chart shows, with the explosion of human numbers, there is an equal and predicable loss of the planet’s diverse species. And in exactly the same way, so too are the rain forests and other fauna all being wiped out to make room for infinite numbers of taxable, bipedal farm animals.

    So, as human numbers exponentially exploding in the Third World, wiping out Earth’s plants and trees and forests and wildlife with it, no on seems to notice that this might just possibly have an effect on the Earth’s ecology.

    Nothing to worry about there!, as far as all those ‘climate “scientists” are concerned. No. All we need to do is figure out a way to tax the fuck out of certain first world nations, (Europe, N. America, Australia, et al,- while carefully ignoring China and India), and all will be wonderful!

    So what if human populations of Africa blow out by the billions, we’re taxing the fuck out of N. America and Europe!, so there’s nothing to worry about. Who needs elephants and lions anyways?! All they do is take up valuable space that can be settled by consumer unit$ who pay taxes and need mortgages and will service the infinitely expanding debt! We need 3% growth, or the whole rotten house of cards comes crashing down.

    If someone wants to see a giraffe, that’s what zoos are for. And when they’re all gone, there’s videos.

    So, you see J.G., I’m exasperated by a societal hysteria over a guy driving a 4×4, as that same society blindly goes about destroying every last blade of grass, to make more room for electric cars and recycle centers. They even pretend to themselves that what they’re doing is virtuous, because after all, taxing the fuck outta Bubba driving his 4×4 *feels* good! And sea turtles and whales have never really done anything for ‘social justice’, so who needs them around anyways?

    Before I start frothing, I gotta go. Will reply to your other comment later, brother.

    Hmmm

    The most direct and accurate comparison between Nazi Germany and today is hands down, without a shadow of a doubt ISRAEL! The Israelis have taken up where Germany left off and keep right on going. Simply substitute “Palestinian” for “Jew” and look at what has happened in Palestine since the 1030’s. From that perspective, it is hard to see where the Nazis left off and the Israelis started up.

    Most people are not aware that Zionist Jews were dealing directly with Hitler throughout the 1930’s until well into the war. In part to allow them to transport thousands of Jews out of Germany to Palestine. This occurred both before and during the war. Most people also don’t know that Hitler had many Jewish senior officers including members of his Senior Staff like Erhard Milch who was his Air Force Chief of Staff.

    Basically, right after the war, starting with the Nuremberg Trials, Zionist Jews began to completely rewrite historical fact to fit a carefully contrived narrative. They have been rewriting history which is being served up on a platter to the American people ever since.

    “The neoliberal battle cry of “liberty” and “freedom” through “personal responsibility.” How “free” are we when the upper 1-10% of our population controls approximately 80-90 percent of the accumulated wealth? How “free” are we when these corporations, many of them foreign-owned, are granted enormous tax breaks and subsidies? Then taxpayers are forced pay for the reduced revenues flowing to government with huge cuts to our public services like infrastructure, health care, and education?

    How free are we when we’re forced to fund an Endless War (for Israel) to the tune of untold and presumably unlimited trillions of dollars? Last I heard the estimate for the Eternal Wars for Israel was in the $even trillion figure and rising..

    Look at how Nazi Germany went from being one of the most impoverished, prostrate, humiliated and pimped-out nations on earth, during the heinous (((Weimar regime))), then exploded into the most powerful nation on earth, simply though the act of pulling out the zio-fangs that were lodged deep into the jugular of the German people.

    Imagine where our nation and societies and civilization might be, were it not for the parasites looting and sucking the blood of our people’s lives.

    Salinas de Gortari. He sold Mexico’s Telephone System to Carlos Slim, the Banking System to friends and rich Mexican families and 950 other state owned companies.

    Well, at least Mexicans also must know what it’s like, to be ruled by the very worst scum that bubbles up from the slime.

    Isn’t it amazing that men like Salinas de Gortari and Tony Blair and Dick Cheney and Dubya, are all free to travel and schmooze with celebrities?

    The People of the US are being manipulated so much by the current illegal alien problem and the “white genocide” propaganda that you are not focusing on the Neoliberal assault on your economy.

    Well, J.G., when it’s your people being genocided, the lens you look at it (The Great Replacement) though, tends to be a shade different from the lens of the people perpetrating the genocide.

    Today it’s a soft genocide, of ethnic replacement. I have ties to Miami. Worked down there for many years. I dated a girl that grew up down there, and graduated from Hialeah High. I was amazed at her yearbook photos, as all the kids were white. Today, Hialeah is a Cuban town. All the signs are in Spanish. If you go into a café or store, no one speaks English. Whitey has been thoroughly cleansed out of the area. Soft genocide. It’s going on all over the place. Dearborn, MI is turning Arab/Muslim. And if Whitey complains, just as in Rotherham, England, they’ll call him a ‘racist’.

    I can understand why Muslims and Mexicans and Asians and Africans and everybody else wants to demand to be able to immigrate into Europe and N. America, but what I can’t understand is a self-castrated people unwilling to demand their own space for their own self-determination so their children can grow up and raise children of their own. Turkey says if Europe doesn’t behave, he’ll unleash millions of “refugee”, because apparently, Europe is not allowed to control her borders. That is a soul-dead people.

    The Jews have really done a job on the people of the West, with their endless propaganda equating unapologetic white people who want to persevere = Nazis.

    Even nations as far flung as New Zealand, are expected to sign their own ethnic and cultural death warrants.

    The key to make a change in the US, is what Mexico did, elect a president that is neither Democrat or Republican and trash the neoliberal economic policies!!!

    You guys can do it brother, like Mexico was being destroyed, the US is going through the same thing! You might need to start thinking Immigration, if things don’t change there, my brother! You are not alone!

    I hear ya!

    Sounds like Mexico finally has an honest leader. If so, then God bless you guys. And you’re right, we need one here very, very badly.

    As for myself, I’ve intended to emigrate ever since I heard that Affirmative Action was the law of the land, and that meant that my country is run by racist, criminal scum. So I’ve gotten out from time to time, even spent some time in Cuba, (that was interesting), but I’ve got deep ties to this place, (in spite of the sinister fucks that run it) so permanently escaping the insanity is difficult, but not impossible.

    This makes me think the massacre was faked, Mexican news media publish gross pictures of butchered bodies all the time, but not one picture has been published of any of the victims.

    I put nothing past the scumfucks. Just consider the Jeffry Epstein farce, and how all the videos conveniently disappeared. They’re lying, as usual, and the rot goes all the way to the top.

    The LeBaron’s have a history of violence and murder which include their own family members, so I wouldn’t put it pass them, to actually sacrifice those people

    Wow.

    What kind of people could do that?

    I once had a conversation with another person here about Muslims being sanguine over the slaughter of some Muslims, if it meant that more Muslims would be able to colonize another soul-dead white, formerly Christian nation, (New Zealand). I had to admit, that I must be wrong, as no people can really want to see their women and children slaughtered, for any reason. At least no sane people. Sounds like you have very little use for these LaBarons, J.G.

    the lies the US MSM use to create division throughout the world.

    There is a demon in the flawed human psyche, full of viciousness and cruelty. One day I hope humanity finds a way to expunge it from the earth.

    I have no desire to be humiliated by an invading army

    I hear you brother! Ditto!

    so I’m locked and loaded and ready for what comes on my property.

    Ditto

    Take care my brother, I stand with the German, the Irish, the American Indian, the Mexican, the Cuban and all the people that were invaded, raped, tortured and murdered by the Anglo/Zionist British/Israel Supremacists that have controlled the world, and still do through their proxy the United States of Zion!

    Same here brother! With an emphasis on Palestine. Not only are they being genocided, but they’re forced to live right next to the very demonic scum who’ve murdered their loved ones, stolen their lands and homes and farms, and mock their suffering, as they heap humiliation upon humiliation on those people whose only ‘crime’ is that they exist. In that, I not only sympathize with the Palestinians, but relate with them as well. Like all white men in the dying Western world, I know what it’s like to be viscerally hated- not for anything I’ve ever done, but for simply being what I was born.

    My heart goes out to those people, perhaps most of all. Not that there aren’t untold millions of Iraqis and Syrians and Libyans and Afghans and Venezuelans, and God knows how many others are endlessly tormented by the zio-fiend. That yes, is holed up in London, Paris, NYC and menaces the planet from Washington, DC.

    Always good to get your perspective on things, brother!

    Whereas Zionist Jewish supremacists used terror, mass-murder, theft and genocide to steal other people’s ancient lands for themselves.

    Mr. Reed engages in the standard orthodox WW2 narrative, all of which was invented by the allies to cover up their own war crimes which were far worse than the Germans ever committed in self defense..
    I survived German occupation in the Netherlands and 3 fire bombings by the Americans. Americans and the RAF destroyed far more of the Netherlands than the Germans ever did. Was bombing the Dutch dikes against Germany or Dutch civilians – about 2000 of whom drowned?
    I grew up 7 km from the German border, speak German fluently, and for the life of me I do not understand how rational people can continue the official drivel of WW2. Lebensraum another invention by the allies. Germans are not an aggressive people. They ARE, by far, the most cultured people I know, more so than the Dutch. The warmongers in Europe are 1. France and 2 Britain. Not Germany who was attacked and illegally invaded 3 times since the unification of 1870 simply because the notion that a united Germany instantly becoming the second largest economy after the U.S. could not be tolerated. Mr. Reed shows an astounding lack of real history, facts and WHY these 3 wars AGAINST Germany, which destroyed Europe TWICE really happened. Reed uses typical buzz words….Lazy!!!
    There was ONE Holocaust only and that was AGAINST the German people. WW1 and WW2 were caused by France/Britain and the U.S…. So was I liberated by the Americans. NO.
    The ICRC who visited every camp throughout the war states that about 10% of camp inmates were Jews, which leaves the other 90% other…So how is it that WW2 is all about the Jews and no one else?. People in camps died from Typhus epidemics and eventually starvation due to the carpet bombing by the allies. I want to know why I was bombed 3 times. Why I had to attend school in bombed out buildings. Of what benefit was it to bomb 35 Dutch cities an the City of Rotterdam over 3000 times??? The allies did not win the war, the Soviets did. Articles like these are a dime a dozen.

    Intermarriage among diaspora Jews is ‘like a second Holocaust,’ Israel’s education minister says

    Israel’s education minister has likened intermarriage among diaspora Jews…to the Holocaust in a recent cabinet meeting. …Peretz said that “assimilation is like a second Holocaust.”

    Last year, Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel…sent a letter to employees at his ministry discussing the “assimilation Holocaust.” According to Ariel, “During the Holocaust, we’ve lost about six million Jews. Without at all comparing the two, we’re losing a part of our people to assimilation.”

    …Eli Ben Dahan said in 2014, while he was deputy minister for religious affairs, that intermarriage are “a silent Holocaust. We must remember that the Jewish people, unfortunately, has gone through a Holocaust. It has been diminishing over the past century … In Europe we have as much as 80 percent intermarriages; in the United States it’s 66 percent. It’s horrible.”

    Don’t assume smart people recognize Nazism when it is right in front of them. It’s been repackaged and resold under many different names by sociopaths in nearly every country. The will to dominate and rule was expressed in the reach of the British around the world, the French in North Africa, the Middle East, and the Far East. Australia in the Middle East and Far East. Canada in the Middle East.

    They, the sociopaths that run governments everywhere, have all adopted the mindset of Fascism, even if they don’t have the wherewithal to imitate the militarism. But don’t call it Fascism…call it National Greatness, or National Security, or some such B.S.

    Indeed Reed is full of BS on this one. Who killed more Jews in the third reich, the Germans or the US and UK? It was actually UK bomber command and the US Army Air Force. By bombing the rail lines around the concentration camps in Europe they guaranteed the starvation and death due to disease of political prisoners in camps throughout Europe. For the most part, the camps were not put in place to kill people, but rather to produce war material for the German Army. It was a strategic decision by the allies. We’ve been fed a huge diet of lies regarding WW2

    So the biggest mass murderers were US and UK air crews.

    I have a 17 year old girl who has been coming one hour a week, when she can, since she was 11 years old. We read a lot of books, then she was obviously not being challenged, so I dragged out GUYTON AND HALL, physiology text book, 11th ed., used in American medical schools. It is in English, and each Saturday, she reads 8 pages of medical school level text on human physiology. Most university graduates in the US would be strained to read the book. Her last session had to do with body functions during terminal shock…

    She is not the only genius I have had in my classes.

    “There were many Hitler admirers in the ranks of corporate leaders and public celebrities, including Charles Lindbergh.”

    Adolf Hitler was an admirable leader, you Jew or “Jew between the ears.”

    I learned a long time ago to like and even love what the Jews dislike and hate. That contrarian approach has NEVER failed me. That being said, Hitler to this very day is the Jews’ number one villain. That makes Uncle Adolf someone to admire, especially after reading MK and several of his speeches.

    “What you are ignoring is that Hitler was a socialist, just as are the present Democrats in the U.S. “

    Lies and disinformation are so hard to kill simply because they are continually being repeated.

    Here’s the reality of the matter as stated by The Man himself during a speech in Munich on April 12, 1922:

    “1. ‘NATIONAL’ AND ‘SOCIAL’ ARE TWO IDENTICAL CONCEPTIONS. It was only the Jew who succeeded, through falsifying the social idea and turning it into Marxism, not only in divorcing the social idea from the national, but in actually representing them as utterly contradictory. That aim he has in fact achieved. At the founding of this Movement we formed the decision that we would give expression to this idea of ours of the identity of the two conceptions: despite all warnings, on the basis of what we had come to believe, on the basis of the sincerity of our will, we christened it ”National Socialist.’ We said to ourselves that to be ‘national’ means above everything to act with a boundless and all-embracing love for the people and, if necessary, even to die for it. And similarly to be ‘social’ means so to build up the state and the community of the people that every individual acts in the interest of the community of the people and must be to such an extent convinced of the goodness, of the honorable straightforwardness of this community of the people as to be ready to die for it.”

    That last part George Washington could have stated it.
