Now that the Democratic Party has apparently succeeded in getting rid of the only two voices among its presidential candidates that actually deviated from the establishment consensus, it appears that Joe Biden will be running against Donald Trump in November. To be sure, Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard are still hanging on, but the fix was in and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) made sure that Sanders would be given the death blow on Super Tuesday while Gabbard would be blocked from participating in any of the late term debates.

It is widely believed that the abrupt withdrawal of candidates Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg on the eve of Super Tuesday that targeted Sanders was arranged through an intervention by ex-President Barack Obama who made a plea in support of “party unity,” offering the two a significant quid pro quo down the road if they were willing to leave the race and throw their support to Biden, which they dutifully did. Rumor has it that Klobuchar might well wind up as Biden’s vice president. An alternative tale is that it was a much more threatening “offer that couldn’t be refused” coming from the Clintons.

Tulsi meanwhile was marginalized after being smeared by Hillary Clinton’s claim that she was a “Russian asset” being “groomed” by the Kremlin. She was then denied her rightful place in the March 15th debate by a sudden and unexpected rules change in the format which was deliberately designed to exclude her. So much for the internal democracy of the so-called Democratic Party.

Now that the line-up for November seems set, the discussion has moved to specific policy issues. Foreign policy did not play much of a part in the Democratic Party debates, but it is expected to be more visible in the presidential race, particularly in light of some of the more visible blunders committed by Donald Trump and his associates.

The latest mistake by the White House, the January 3rd airstrike in Iraq that killed Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani and eight Iraqi associates is still resonating, having just last week produced an attack on a U.S. base that killed two American and one British soldiers, followed by a retaliatory bombing by U.S. forces directed against Iraqi militia Kataib Hezbollah, which is reported to be supported by Iran but has also been integrated into the Iraqi armed forces. The U.S. unilateral action is taking place without Baghdad’s consent and in spite of Iraqi government demands that Washington close its bases and withdraw its remaining troops, numbering approximately 5,000.

Ironically, killing Soleimani and the consequences is unlikely to be a theme picked up on by the genial but muddled Biden as both major parties are firmly in the grip of the Israel Lobby and are unlikely to complain about killing a senior Iranian official. Nor will the next president, whoever he is, reverse the disastrous Trump decision and rejoin the JCPOA agreement of 2015 which was intended to monitor Iran’s civilian use nuclear program.

Both Trump and Biden might reasonably described as Zionists, Trump by virtue of the made-in-Israel foreign policy positions he has delivered on since his election, and Biden by word and deed during his entire time in politics. When Biden encountered Sarah Palin in 2008 in the vice-presidential debate, he and Palin sought to outdo each other in enthusing over how much they love the Jewish state. Biden has said that “I am a Zionist. You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist” and also, ridiculously, “Were there not an Israel, the U.S. would have to invent one. We will never abandon Israel — out of our own self-interest. [It] is the best $3 billion investment we make.” Biden has been a regular feature speaker at the annual AIPAC summit in Washington.

Trump might be described as both paranoid and narcissistic, meaning that he sees himself as surrounded by enemies and that the enemies are out to get him personally. When he is criticized, he either ridicules the source or does something impulsive to deflect what is being said. He attacked Syria twice based on false claims about the use of chemical weapons when a consensus developed in the media and in congress that he was being “weak” in the Middle East. Those attacks were war crimes as Syria was not threatening the United States.

Trump similarly reversed himself on withdrawing from Syria when he ran into criticism of the move and his plan to extricate the United States from Afghanistan, if it develops at all, could easily be subjected to similar revision. Trump is not really the man who as a candidate indicated that he was seriously looking for a way out of America’s endless and pointless wars, no matter what his supporters continue to assert.

Biden is on a different track in that he is an establishment hawk. As head of the Senate Foreign Affairs committee back in 2002-2003 he green lighted George W. Bush’s plan to attack Iraq. Beyond that, he cheer-leaded the effort from the Democratic Party benches, helping to create a consensus both in Washington and in the media that Saddam Hussein was a threat that had to be dealt with. He should have known better as he was privy to intelligence that was suggesting that the Iraqis were no threat at all. He did not moderate his tune on Iraq until after 2005, when the expected slam-dunk quick victory got very messy.

Biden was also certainly privy to the decision making by President Barack Obama, which include the destruction of Libya and the killing of American citizens by drone. Whether he actively supported those policies is unknown, but he has never been challenged on them. What is clear is that he did not object to them, another sign of his willingness to go along with the establishment, a tendency which will undoubtedly continue if he is elected president.

And Biden’s foreign policy reminiscences are is subject to what appear to be memory losses or inability to articulate, illustrated by a whole series of faux pas during the campaign. He has a number of times told a tale of his heroism in Afghanistan that is complete fiction, similar to Hillary Clinton’s lying claims of courage under fire in Bosnia.

So, we have a president in place who takes foreign policy personally in that his first thoughts are “how does it make me look?” and a prospective challenger who appears to be suffering from initial stages of dementia and who has always been relied upon to support the establishment line, whatever it might be. Though Trump is the more dangerous of the two as he is both unpredictable and irrational, the likelihood is that Biden will be guided by the Clintons and Obamas. To put it another way, no matter who is president the likelihood that the United States will change direction to get away from its interventionism and bullying on a global scale is virtually nonexistent. At least until the money runs out. Or to express it as a friend of mine does, “No matter who is elected we Americans wind up getting John McCain.” Goodnight America!

  1. This is a brilliant panoramic summary of the American political situation and prospects for any change in foreign policy.

    I believe the investments in current foreign policy – the Pentagon, the CIA, the State Department – and the power of those they serve – America’s plutocracy – are too huge to take even the slightest risk of change.

    Why is it that in America, at least 70% of the people are against starting any new war of choice, and yet they always get a warmonger as president, making aggressive war in about 7 countries openly and God knows how many covertly?

    Democracy in the USA is a sham.

    This stupid, narcissistic man can’t give up the narcotic of being in the spotlight even as he’s looking at eighty years of age approaching. The Dem party and American politics in general are sclerotic as they rely on people like this, a person in the early stages of dementia. No new up-and-comers, no new ideas, just the same old formulas. The world is changing; what worked before won’t work forever. The interventionism and bullying is going to be increasingly stymied as other countries develop capabilities to resist and form alliances to do so. What then? What’s the US strategy when it can no longer get its way? What happens when the dollar is no longer the world’s reserve currency? That’s on the horizon. The shrillness of rhetoric against countries such as Russia, China, Iran will escalate even as the ability to do anything about them goes down. The future looks bleak as we head for the iceberg even while this clown show plays out on deck.

    Bipartisan. You mean top-down. Presumptive Vegetable-in-Chief Biden was polling at 9% in MA and won the primaries with like 33%. That’s LATAM-scale electoral fraud for which only CIA has form.

    And if there were any vestige of doubt that it’s CIA that’s crushing insubordinate rule-of-law reformers, just look at Scotland, where CIA has scripted a show trial for Alex Salmond in its most servile satellite. It follows the script for Julian Assange, Jacob Appelbaum, and other CIA political enemies.

    On NATO Pact crimes against peace, Salmond’s better than Sanders and Tulsi put together. So CIA ventriloquists are dragging him through his every lame grampa smoov move, making shit up as needed. Salmond is convicted of counterrevolutionary horndog deviationism or something. Murray’s on it, you should put him up again because it’s more evidence of systematic CIA repression in the Western bloc, here through kitchen-sink kompromat.

    https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/

    After the crime against humanity of systematic and widespread CIA torture and treaty-party mutiny on US breaches of the BWC, CIA is facing an impunity crisis. Their only hope to get away with their crimes is to start a war. So they did: CIA aggression by germ warfare in breach of the 1925 Geneva Conventions, the Convention Relative to the Opening of Hostilities, and London Agreement Articles 6a and c. Without general war, the world has got the nuts of DO vermin in the vice. So they’ve bought themselves some time. Until they lose. Which they will. They pushed Russia and China and the rest of the world too far.

    Better decide whose side you’re on, because CIA has infested and perverted every corner of society and state. Postwar rehabilitation will have to cut a swathe through the ranks of brainwashed tools, pols, cops, military, journalists, and corporate drones.

    There’s this idea people like PG and other jihadis and Euroweenie-dhimmis have, that the strong support for Israel is because of the End Times stuff, the Jews have to return to Israel to start Jesus’ second coming.

    That is part of Israel’s US support for sure. But a pretty small part.

    Mostly people just like Jews because (1) Jews are all around pretty great people (2) Israel has been a solid US ally for 71 years (3) Israelis are (mostly) Western and white people who stand up to jihadis and third world immivasion (4) white Americans are about 8% Jewish or partly Jewish.

    It is a pretty stark choice.

    -1- Biden is a tool of the elite Globalist MIC, and will put more boots on the ground in Afghanistan. Intervention in Ukraine for his family’s financial backer Burisma is 100% certain. He will probably, invade Libya and Iran too.

    -2- Trump is fighting the Deep State and trying to end the messes created by NeoConDemocrats. Second term Trump will likely be able to pull the full Gorbachev. 100% withdrawal from Afghanistan, just like the USSR did in 1989. When the Iranian people inevitably manage to get rid of regional menace Khameni, a even larger draw down will be possible.

    Go back to 1970s article from Times or WSJ when Israel was seen just another county struggling to survive but can’t without American military and financial support .

    What does AIPAC do when America tries to militarily withdraw from Asia ,? It sees red . Peaceful ,democratic ic not at war , America is not good for Israel for continuity of the support .

    It decides that it has to educate US .
    This education was no less sinister than that undertaken by Nazi or Pol Pot only more pervasive ,markedly subliminal and persistent . Above all those ‘ re-education ‘ camps were built around media, defense,churches,academic,Supreme Court, school , college , film industries and built repeatedly from 1913 .

    If the USA were to ditch Israel – which can never happen with the current bought-up blackmailed political class – the country might be able to salvage its reputation worldwide.

    The idea that US citizens are enamoured with Israel is fiction propagated by the Jewish-controlled media. Every vote in the UN confirms that almost all the countries of the world despise Israel for good reasons.

    Here is a classic by the Times of Israel hailing the fact that a handful of countries changed their voting pattern. These countries are totally under the thumb of the USA.

    In surprise change, 13 countries vote against pro-Palestine UN resolution

    UN Charter, eh? Rick McLaren tried that in 1996 with his Republic of Texas movement which led to the 1997 Republic of Texas standoff right in my neck of the woods. And how did that work out? Why in the world would a secessionist movement need the UN’s permission? Even Bill Cooper lambasted McLaren about this. McLaren even tried the Court at the Hague, who turned down the case “for want ot jurisdiction.” Why?Because the UN has no jurisdiction, that’s why!

    Is there no DC politician capable of speaking the truth. Had pinned my hopes on Tulsi, not only does she drop out, she urges us fools to back Uncle Creepy Joe. Nothing says progressiveness like putting someone who obviously has dementia and a fondness for rubbing on little girls into the WH.

    Wonder what Tulse got in return? Did the DNC dangle the Sec of State job in front of her quisling face?

    Or is it much more simpler, just spell Tulsi’s first name backwards.

    Americans are deluded when they think America has two distinct political party’s, the Repubs and Dems.

    Thanks Mr. Gerald, as ever an excellent article.

    However, from my east Mediterranean perspective there IS a better option and it is most certainly NOT more Clinton-Obama. Greece is currently suffering under uber-Clintonite US Amb. Pyatt [imported direct from Ukraine; and hunkering down here on extended time when Ukrainegate broke in Sept.] talking out of both sides of his mouth as he organises with his Ankara counterpart Turkey’s depredations on Greece and fake neo-Ottomanism [heads up State department: rump Turkey was after the Ottoman empire, but its good Disney isn’t it], while US troops in east Syria (a non-Kurd area slated for “Kurdistan”) facilitate Turkey’s removal of US’s paid terrorists to Tripoli in Libya.

    From a regional perspective no new wars have been started. No New Wars – I repeat that. And Syria with Russian help is slowly reclaiming its territory.

    Trump has tried – or appeared to have tried – to withdraw from Syria, Afghanistan and South Korea (the N. Korea peace attempt) : all scuppered by his deep state establishment babysitters Pompeo and Bolton.

    So – sorry! – NO. Outside the US and inside the Cebrowski zone, things look quite different.

  36. My question is why didn’t the US just nuke various Muslim countries instead of spending all that money occupying them?

    I understand that the US was being guided by Israel’s agents in the upper echelons of the US government, but why didn’t these Jewish sadists advocate for the nuclear option?

    Think of all the time and money America could have saved by taking the nuclear option, it would also he a good form of population control.

    Have you forgotten about Russiagate, Ukrainegate and all the minor attempts to remove Trump by the Deep State Jew Coup? There is no doubt that Trump was as “unqualified” to assume the presidency as George W but at least George W had his party backing him. Trump was surrounded by his enemies, even many of those in his administration. Even the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence headed by Burr who deferred to Warner was part of the coup attempt. This is not to excuse many of Trump’s mistakes but let’s not assign everything to faux paranoia.

    I thought about your narcissism comment. I was unemployed for years. Over %90 of the decision makers were women when deciding if I was even allowed entry level work. A lot of the jobs even included training, so there was no excuse. Today we have people on skid row in the wealthiest nation on earth. We also have a lot of women in decision making position that smile and think it is funny when a man is suffering. In the wealthiest nation on earth, getting an entry level job is considered every bit as difficult as becoming a rocket scientist. We produce 200,000 scientists per year compared to China’s 3.6 million. Could it be that we put people in leadership positions that only want to win arguments and ensure their narrative is victorious instead of considering the devastating impact on others and what is good for the nation? You know that if the majority of women were on skid row politicians and lawyers would be losing their minds and suing men for everything they are worth for their biases. Could it possibly be that women went to the University system that promoted the evil patriarchy narrative and when they get into the workplace they actually believe men deserve their suffering? When I talk to Chinese people they do think of themselves, but they also have a strong sense of what is good for China. Could it possibly be that the University harbored this animosity toward the “evil patriarchy” to such an extent that they did not care at all for what was good for the country? Imagine if all of those women who kept me on the unemployment line thought to themselves that having long term unemployment was not good for the country, and I should do my part to help instead of opening the journal of psychology and looking for labels to justify their inaction?

    Evangelicals make up approximately 35% the American population and they and their leaders are very strong supporters of Israel. Ask John Hagee if you have any doubts.

    And a great deal of ordinary Americans really believe that Israel is our ally and best friend. Again, ask Sean Hannity or virtually any other anchor at Fox News what they think about Israel. Their opinion reflects what a lot of ordinary Americans believe.

    Much as I might hope that the average American would wake up and recognize the damage to our Republic and our integrity that has come from the Israel based takeover of our government, I do not see any evidence for this.

    In fact, the mass hypnotic delusion that Israel is our best friend and ally not only persists, it may soon be a requirement in the land of the free and the home of the brave for all of us to take a loyalty oath to Israel.

    She was no fraud.

    But in either of the two parties in the US, if you do not endorse the party’s candidate, you might as well consider your political career over.

    Remember, Bernie, in 2016, even after clearly being cheated out of the nomination by Hillary Clinton, still endorsed her and even worked for her.

    That’s just the way the establishment works.

    Tulsi is one of the few honest – in at least over a range of important matters – American politicians to come along in recent years.

    The result of being honest about America’s imperial wars was her virtual exclusion from speaking and from decent press coverage.

    That is how the American establishment remains the establishment.

    There is no sense of genuine democracy in America, nor do independent, third-party efforts enjoy any success owing to the huge bankroll needed to play at the table.

    It’s not just in the deep south, my friend. Christian patriotards are everywhere.

    I tried to get an older Vietnam war vet to even entertain for a second that Israel might not be our ‘bestest buddy in the whole wide world’, and he would not budge. He just kept parroting, “But they’re our closest ally”. So I went in for a deeper attack, asking in which branch he served.

    “Navy man!” was the proud reply.

    “Ever heard of the USS Liberty incident?” I meekly queried.

    “Nope. Should I have?”

    I then went on to describe the attack, leaving to the very last the critical fact of who attacked the ship.

    “That can’t be true. I don’t believe it. No way Israel would attack one of our Navy ships.”

    I tried to get him to fire up his computer to do the search. “Google search it”, I implored him.

    Nope. No way in hell. He did not want to know. And he was a so-called ‘Navy man’.

    I went a little deeper. I asked if he was a Christian, to which he replied, “Yes.”

    “Do you believe that the jews are God’s chosen people?”

    “Yes, I do.”

    That was when I decided not to pursue it any longer, but instead simply wrote down a search to do on Google: ‘USS Liberty Israel attack deliberate’, or something to that effect. I am sure that, fearing for his eternal soul, as soon as I left he promptly tossed the piece of paper in the trash as being a temptation from the devil. He was old and obviously desperate to secure a place in jew-controlled Heaven, complete with an eternity of “Gilligan’s Island” reruns and Dennis Miller monologues.

    I think these sadly deluded everyday Christians, and worse, the militant Christian Zionists (CZs), are the grassroots bulwarks of ever-growing full-spectrum Tribal dominance in the USA and countless other countries (Brazil immediately comes to mind, and their CZ fascist hero, Jair Bolsonaro), who would unhesitatingly support criminalization of any Tribal criticisms along the lines of the EU and their idiotic Holocaust denial laws, except even broader and more draconian. With these cretins as their willing foot soldiers (and there are millions and millions of these creatures roaming about), one wonders just how far the Tribal elites will be willing to push things.

    With two ultra pro-Israel boot-licking shabbos goy zio-slaves now squaring off to fight for who can be the next president of the United States of Judaism, I firmly believe that what the future holds for the US and the world is nothing short of terrifying (and nauseating……)

    Part of the reason Israel gets so much support among the American people is decades of constant propaganda from both the news media and “entertainment” industry. The Israelis are routinely portrayed as likeable and heroic, and any little “oopsies” like the USS Liberty attack or the Lavon Affair are sent down the Memory Hole.

    Israelis also are, on the whole, more “westernized” than the Arabs, and better able to push their party line on gullible, untraveled Americans. Kind of like how, in World War One, the British and French used the prestige they had in Americans’ eyes to make sure that the average American was pro-Allied, while the Germans made mistake after mistake. The British in particular just knew better how to appeal to Americans.

    However, the last few decades haven’t done the Israelis’ PR men any favors. As of September 10, 2001, they were getting to be less and less popular; more people were asking why we have to endlessly support them and bankroll them. I don’t know that they knew in advance about 9-11, but they were well-positioned to take advantage of it, posing, yet again, as “our only friend in the Middle East.” If 9-11 was a Mossad op, the people responsible pulled off an incredible intelligence coup.

    “WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is praising Jewish leaders for helping change American attitudes about gay marriage and other issues.

    Biden says culture and arts change people’s attitudes. He cites social media and the old NBC TV series “Will and Grace” as examples of what helped changed attitudes on gay marriage.

    Biden says, quote, “Think — behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry.”

    Biden says the influence is immense and that those changes have been for the good.

  82. I agree with most of your conclusions, but

    the disastrous Trump decision and rejoin the JCPOA agreement of 2015 which was intended to monitor Iran’s civilian use nuclear program.

    is off base. The JCPOA was an excuse to curb Iran’s non-existent weapons programme. In reality, it was designed to prevent Iran from competing in medical radio-nuclide sales.
    In 2004, Canada, which produced approximately 30% of the world’s supply, had a partial shutdown or its Chalk River reactor, causing a greater shortage of Technetium99. It was also having difficulty meeting the unusually high standards set for its new reactor, which was using new multiple source technology. As early as 2006 the US understood the opportunity to ramp up production to meet the shortfall and expanding use of medical radio-nuclides. The new Iranian Bushehr site could do much more at less cost, which would mean competing with both the US and Israel for sales of Technetium99.
    The JCPOA limited the enrichment to 5%. Technetium99 requires 20-25% enrichment. The JCPOA was an early economic “sanction” against Iran to the great benefit of the US and Israel. Trump leaving the JCPOA actually untied Iran’s hands for that market. The Zio-cons, who can’t think past their noses, figured Iran would go full bore, but they didn’t. Then it clicked that the US and Israel could lose billions if Iran produced Technetium99, so broad sanctions were introduced.
    Prior to the JCPOA, Iran had voluntarily allowed the most invasive IAEA inspections ever. The IAEA can’t make normal inspections in the US, because the US has “lost” not only a lot of proscribed material, but several warheads as well.
    For a good primer on the Iranian situation, see Dr. Gordon Prather’s archives at antiwar.com

    He endless talked about how barbaric Yahweh is in the Old testament.

    An early Christian preacher thought the same. His name was Marcion. Marcion (84 – c.160 AD), born at Sinope in Pontus, the son of a bishop, he traveled to Rome circa 135 and became a member of the church there.

    http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/marcion.html

    Marcion taught that the god of the Old Testament was not the true God but rather that the true and higher God had been revealed only with Jesus Christ. Marcion wrote the Antitheses to show the differences between the god of the Old Testament and the true God.

    The great Greek, Roman and Egyptian cultures gave the world so much.

    There are two reasons why the US is having troubles with Islamic countries (who are perpetually angry by the way, the great myth of racial equality had convinced people that all ethnicities think the same way)

    1. The US interfered in their countries, which was like poking the hornets nest

    2. Once the hornets nest was poked, they just kind of loitered around, when the rational thing to do would be to destroy the nest.

    No other nuclear-armed country in the world would be willing to get involved in a nuclear exchange with America over some obliterated Arab cities. Peter Giraldi often complains about America and how they have done wrong, but it is my view that America is one of the most benevolent world hegemons to have ever existed (it will not remain so in the near future, some argue if it still has the right to be called a world hegemon)

    Here we have the greatest military the world has ever seen, and what do they do with it? Nada, zip zilch.

    The war in Afghanistan could easily have been won had the will been there. If gunfire came from a hamlet or village, the entire village should have been liquidated just as the SS police battalions did on the Eastern Front.

    Instead we are crying over when some soldier with initiative kills a raghead.

    Hannity apparently gets paid $40 million a year, or about $165,000 a show. A regular guy, just like his audience, right? As Spengler pointed out, his sort represent the interests of the Jews who pay their salaries and no other. Several years ago in a dialogue on his TV show with Ann Coulter, both enthusiastically agreed that if they could, they’d have Netanyahu serving simultaneously as president of the United States. Netanyahu, as Christopher Bollyn has persuasively demonstrated, was unquestionably one of the chief architects, if not the chief architect, of 9/11. Hannity’s relentless complicity in the cover up provides powerful evidence he’s guilty as well as his love, Netanyahu.

    As others have pointed out, no one has been more responsible for sending Americans to die and be maimed serving Jewish interests and at the cost of bankrupting America that the traitor Hannity. And what a tragedy that people in the heartland of this country can’t see that this Long Island huckster’s flag-waving jingoism and Country Western shtick are a total con piped into their TV sets straight from Times Square, New York.

    The great Greek, Roman and Egyptian cultures gave the world so much.

    The certainly did. Sadly, this treasure of ancient thought and spirit has been substantially dropped from school curricula. It was feared it no longer suited today’s technological society. And its authors were deemed overly white.

    Began reading today Werner Jaeger’s masterwork, “Paideia: the Ideals of Greek Culture,” translated from the German by classisist Gilbert Highet. It serves very well to get my mind off Corona.

    One such ideal I cherish is the Greek belief in the Ontos, the self-existing primodial principle to the cosmos. St. Paul alludes to this belief in his missionary speech in Athens. For Christians the Ontos is Christ—“In the beginning was the Word, and Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1

    It is the greatest spiritual salve I know in times of grave challenge. God bless our nation with the wisdom and fortitude to overcome.

    who are perpetually angry by the way, the great myth of racial equality had convinced people that all ethnicities think the same way

    I don’t think its a racial thing – Islam in its current form encourages anger and attracts chronically angry people.

    Witness Kevin Barret – a chronically angry person who converted to Islam. And the angry blacks who for a short period in the 70s found Islam attractive – and the way angry alt-right types on Unz find Islam attractive.

    Anger is the emotion of the weak – and the more I read about Islam and interact with Muslims, I see that Islam has a massive inferiority complex.

    It is no surprise that Muslims around the world are chronically angry. As the latecomer, and least sophisticated, the religion started out with a feeling of inferiority towards Christians and Jews – especially Jews, I am now realizing – but it immediately provided the cure for this – to feel good about itself, Islam had to conquer and subjugate Jews and Christians – everyone, really. That way it could feel superior.

    A massive inferiority complex needed a massive cure. And as long as the cure was available, Islam was not particularly angry.

    But the conquering energies of a new civilization never last, and inevitably one has to create a new self-image for oneself. All civilizations go through this. They grow up. What was possible in the beginning, when energy is fresh and young, isn’t possible later.

    The glory days of conquest will never return for Islam, but it has not yet internally accepted this. So there is a massive gap between reality and self image – and hence anger.

    But that too won’t last – we forget Islam is the youngest civilization, perhaps on this planet, and has many changes to undergo as it matures.

    Well there was an up-and-comer named Tulsi Gabbard. But not only did the DNC & Big Media shut her out, the people did too. She spent literally 4 months campaigning full time in New Hampshire, and anyone there paying attention had to have heard her antiwar message, yet came away with 3% of the vote. I guess the people are not as sick of war as some think.

    Phil must have written this before Tulsi dropped out. To top it off, after quitting her campaign she threw her support behind Biden. If you go to Facebook (I don’t do twitter), her supporters are plenty pissed off. Who knows if they will hold a grudge if Tulsi runs again.

    Absurd claim about white Americans being 8% Jewish. Not even close to true or arguable. Definitely not true of white Americans of English, Scottish, Irish, and welsh ancestry, who still are probably the largest single white American group.

    Even Italian-Americans, one of the few very-numerous white American groups with common Jewish ancestry, rarely have even that much. I’m Italian-American, and my genetic tests show nearly 50% Italian and about ONE percent middle eastern (could be either Arab or Sephardic Jew), ZERO percent ashkenazi (“european/white Jew”).

    You can express your affection for Jewish people or Jewish culture without inventing your own “facts.”

    As for Jewish people being mostly great people, guess that depends on your personal experience. On balance, I’d say no. With the exception of my current boss, most of my nastiest, most demeaning, least humane bosses and coworkers have been Jews. Absolutely miserable pricks who relish the chance to hurt others and lord it over them.

    Nonetheless, I find and enjoy my relationships with the exceptions. My closest friend from back home on the East Coast is about half ashkenazi Jew genetically but not typical, as his Jewish parent was born and raised Catholic (as were her parents). My closest friend here in Los Angeles is all Jewish, and happy to let you know it; also not typical for American Jews, as he’s half Sephardic, half ashkenazim, and all standard neoconservative “free enterprise” Republican Party enthusiast and reasonably “socially conservative.” He’s not a popular guy at the weekly klatsch after temple, especially during election season.

    It’s always cute to see the anti-Christian cultists always out in force to pat themselves on the back whenever the Jews are up to no good.

    Here’s the facts, gents – The Jews today have rejected the Messiah – Jesus Christ – and His only Church – the Roman Catholic one – led by that Pope fellow – the quality of that guy varying from time to time, and very providentially at its worst today as more Catholics entertain the possibility that Francis is an anti-Pope based on Benedict’s shoddy bifurcated abdication that wasn’t really an abdication. But let’s not get into too much inside baseball here.

    [MORE]

    The ‘Christians’ that make up America – are not Christians, but Bible-readers birthed as bastards after bastards following the examples of the heretic Martin Luther, and the adulterous Henry VIII. I won’t even get into the complexities of the East/West Schism, but the ‘Christians; who largely make up America are rejects who didn’t like ‘Popery’ and fled their ways to the New World en masse, and finding that they were too splintered up to be any good because there was no standard of unity as Catholics have under a hierarchy instituted by Christ with consistency and where no idiot could just invent his own church and come up with his own bullshit, the ‘Christians’ settled on the freemasonic idea of America and its secular promises under a bullshit consitution that said everyone was free to practice whatever religion they wished as a God-given right, which is blasphemy to the Christian God Who very clearly demands only He be acknowledged. Because so long as you have ‘freedom of religion’ for every pagan moron, cult-protestant and new-age agnostic spiritual atheist fellator, in love with the sound of their own jargon and what they interpret history to be, this eventually leads to more chaos. Something no doubt all the reasonable immigration-control people would understand – too much multiculturalism leads to disaster.

    So America is certainly not a Christian nation, it’s a free-masonic one, which means it’s kosher to have the Jews come in and boss you around so long as they light incense to the flag and yell USA! USA! and so long as USA! is behind Israel – which by the way is also a secular state, and not in any way comparable to the Old Testament Israel which was rightfully a monarchy as much of the Catholic world was before the Lodges convinced populations of idiots that democracy was better, adn we all know how well democracy has been working out, haven’t we?

    I don’t know where the American ‘Christians’ are, but if these mythical creatures couldn’t halt abortion and homosexuality and the trans-menonite madness, there’s little they can do if their ‘free’ country is run by Jews loyal to another state and who send their men to die for it just as surely as they’ll make life miserable for anyone who doesn’t bake cakes or photograph sodomite weddings.

    But that’s exactly where the idea of ‘America’ built on erroneous philosophies leads to, and why the Papacies were right to condemn the French and American Revolutions for the bullshit they were. In the end, America will eventually vote itself to communism, even one run by capitalist corporations as the committee chairmen who are very grateful for all your bailouts.

    But the icing on the cake is that once the Protties chucked overboard the Papacy and the Catholic Mass, they then couldn’t make sense of Biblical prophecies concerning the continuance of the Sacrifice and priesthood and numerous other things. But being unwilling to recognize their colossal mistake, had to try and interpret all this to mean that the State of Israel had to be reformed and the Temple rebuilt so that the Messiah comes again, or for the Jews finally comes – but as the Catholic Church held, the Church was the New Israel, and the New Jerusalem, outside of which there is no salvation.

    This Americanist/Jewish nonsense sadly finally infiltrated its way into the Church in the 1960’s at the Vatican Council II, which continues to divide Catholics today with the consensus amongst those who give a shit finally shifting to see it for the hijackery that it was to push more openings to the Jews and Freemasonic Americanist ideas. But when 70% of Catholics are liberal Americanists who don’t care, it’s not going to amount to much, especially when quite a number of commies, sodomites and liberals infiltrated the priesthood, pushed out orthodox men and then went on their merry way abusing boys and young men whilst pushing more social justice policies from the pulpit, and jettisoned the entire intellectual and rigorous heritage the Church preserved from the ancient Jews, the ancient Greeks and Romans and every other wisdom but filtered correctly through Revelation from the One True God. And as the modern world continues to learn, their whole sexual revolution isn’t the party they were hoping it would be, but that’s the bed they shat in and then defined it as an acceptable fetish supported by American freedom.

    The point being – the great USA and all the other little USAs out there neutered and constrained the only organization that could check the Jews and the leftist crazies – the Catholic Church – and turned much of her into a den of harlots pushing more of the USA! USA! ISRAEL! Liberty & Tolerance & Democracy! religion.

    It’s gotten to the point where there is no human means to help ourselves out of the grave we’ve dug. So it will take a direct intervention of God into History once again. But God likes to wait until we’re much further along in our wretched stupidity before that happens, because after all, history needs to record for eternity the facts about how far mankind can fall when left to its own devices.

    Any ‘Christian’ ought to go pop open that Book as the back of their Bibles called ‘The Apocalypse’ and then try to convince themselves that what is going on in there sounds like a good time… And here’s a little secret —- There is no such thing as the Rapture —- No, my friends, when the shit hits the fans that you’ve helped pile up, you’re going to be down here just as much as all the rest of us.

But there’s that little point about the utterly homosexual deviant clergy and leadership of the RC Church. Moreover, how has the RCC fared in staving off the spread of homosexual and other perversions being practiced, glorified in our popular culture, and urge on our children? And how would the odd unmarried childless sheltered misfits who too often pass for RC priests have any credibility in these matters?

    Sean Hannity and anchors of Fox News are not at all representative of the views of “ordinary Americans”, whoever they are. Many people voted for Trump because he campaigned on being anti-war, anti-immigration. His overt pandering to Israel, hawkish stance on Iran, Syria and continued warring in the Mideast turned off a lot of his supporters. I think he is in big danger of losing in November.

    Sanders is popular because he campaigned on the same anti-war platform, not just socialism. The only reason Biden is winning now is because many on the left despise Trump and will vote for anyone they think have the best chance to beat him, and they think Biden is the man not Sanders because Zionist owned msm has worked hard to tarnish Sanders.

    I agree that it’s always cute to see the anti-Christian cultists babble on, simply revealing their delusions. But you with mentioning but then avoiding anything about the East/West Schism and throwing off language like “and His only Church — the Roman Church — led by the Pope fellow” do not impress. In strangely elevating the Mass above the Pope fellow. And not explaining why when the Latin Church split from the Orthodox Church, the Unorthodox Church is the Only Church. There is something about the claim to be the Only Church that you haven’t noticed, though it is certainly the central position of the hierarchy of the Pope fellow, the implication goes unnoticed. Let’s leave it hidden for now.

    The Only Church relies a lot on words of Peter that appear in Matthew a few verses before Jesus shouts at Peter, “Get thou behind me, Satan!” Peter had been told by his brother Andrew (see John chapter 1) that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and when Jesus asked the group of apostles who they said he was, Peter by chance was the first to reply and piped up with what Andrew had told him. But any one of them could have said that. They had been with him, seen his miracles, they all knew it. That fact, that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, is obviously the foundation of Christ’s Church, the rock on which He built His Church. Obviously the Church has no other foundation, could only be built on that rock. Obviously!

    But I was interested in your attributing the appearance of the “Protts” or “cult Protestants” to Luther and King Henry VIII. That bespeaks childhood brainwashing, which is very much a characteristic of the Church of that Pope fellow. And otherwise of the Jews. In fact the king was exploiting a situation not of his making. The Reformation was led by Luther, Calvin, and some lesser-known reformers.

    The key purpose of that childhood brainwashing and indoctrination is to prevent you from knowing what the Pope fellow does not want you to know, fill your mind with mad ideas such as that Henry VIII led the Reformation, and close your mind.

    It replaces an earlier system in which anyone found in possession of the Bible in the common language was executed. It has the same purpose. You are only allowed to know what the man in black tells you. Otherwise you are bible-readers birthed as bastards. The Bible is evil except for what the man in black tells you.

    And you with your “Pope fellow”. You want your infallible Pope to rule the Only Church, but only in conformity with your own judgement. You are in mental conflict.

    I suppose this religious diversion here is on topic in the sense that the religious self-righteousness that infects all religions, has the potential to motivate men to commit great crimes against humanity and that describes recent and current foreign policy to an insane degree. Religions, while having some potential for good, also bring with them a long history of the madness that all too often takes over and leads to things like, “Kill them all! God will recognise His own”. It’s nuts!

    What about the Nazoreans? The Jerusalem church headed by James the Just, immediately following the death of Jesus, isn’t that the One True Church of Christ? And isn’t what is now referred to as Christianity actually more aptly described as Paulianity or Peter’s religion called Christianity?

    I think the majority of those lower level Nazorean Jesus followers likely fled East into Syria and beyond and there are, or were, still groups there that retain many of the rituals that Jesus would actually be familiar with and approve of rather than the rituals of all of the different branches of what is today known as Christianity. Maybe the ISIS proxy war eliminated them, what a terrible coincidence!

    And then there’s the massive input of Emperor Constantine and his mighty clan, what about their role in “the Good Book”? What would Jesus make of it? I wonder. I would have thought that Jesus would have made the Sabbath as his special day rather than the day named in honour of the Sun. The Flavian God was Sol Invictus, hmmmm what, another coincidence? Does anyone question this at all? I’m asking in all sincerity and not knocking any of them. It’s not my thing but I know there’s more to it, most likely allegorical and oh so open to interpretation anyway.

    Anyway, America is supposed to have a distinct separation of church and state and it’s all gone to Hell due to too many Americans being religious nuts themselves and going along with the nuttiness. It concerns me that this Corona event is driven by such nuttiness. Evil genius!

    Those who follow the SatanoAllah and the Anti-Christ Muhammad are doomed to Hell unless they repent and do pennance. Those with high or average intelligence realized their fatal error long ago, and repudiated the evil of the SatanoAllah.

    Thus, the surviving Muslim sub-species is abysmally stupid and obstinate. Islam a walking, grunting, squealing example to civilized people of what happens to those who worship the SatanoAllah.

    It takes huge amounts of repetition to get sub-80 IQ drones to absorb even simple lies. Muslims are called to prayer five times a day to slowly ‘learn’ from the the adult version of TeleTubbie.

As a former atheist, I never had a problem with Christians or Christianity, because at least the New Testament promoted great values for a person to live by. Personally, I am a Christian but what causes me to sometimes doubt my beliefs and fall back into being an agnostic or even atheist is knowing who wrote the Holy Bible. Much of the Old Testament reads somewhat like a fairy tale or even a Marvel comic. Comics? More Jewy than Hollywood. haha. But alas, I fight the temptation and know that there must be a God who created this mess, and there certainly is an evil force in this world, evil people like YOU for example. So I will put my faith in Jesus Christ, knowing that in the end, he will indeed come back and rule with a rod of iron. Like my favorite Al Pacino movie, finally there will be, JUSTICE FOR ALL.

She has enormous power in the party and has the base, funding and DNC support to launch by far the best campaign. Hillary received 95% of the Super Delegate’s vote in the 2016 Convention. The Super Delegates are the heart and soul of the Democrat Party, made up of all Democrat Senators, House members, Governors, ex-Presidents, etc… approx 775 delegates.

    She has learned from her mistakes in 2016… she has avoided running in the primaries, thus avoiding any negative press so far. She has been very visible lately with appearances on late night talk shows, podcasts, book tours, HULU biography launched last week during Super Tuesday, thus polishing her image before entering the race.

    Last year Nethie got the Golan Heights.

    https://www.algemeiner.com/2019/03/24/president-trumps-purim-gift/

    [MORE]

    Nearly forty years ago, Prime Minister Menachem Begin canceled Israeli military rule over the Golan Heights, replacing it with Israeli law. It was a prescient decision, now enhanced by President Trump. And the day of his announcement — appropriately — was Purim. As Israeli journalist Boaz Bismuth wrote: on the very day when, according to the Book of Esther, “The Jews had light and gladness and joy and honor,” President Trump bestowed the “wonderful gift” of recognizing the Golan Heights as part of Israel.

    Purim this year was March 9-11. March 9 – Queen Esther fast, March 10 – Purim day, March 11 – walled Purim day – celebrated in walled cities like Jerusalem.

    Coronavirus was the Purim gift this year. It is the biggest Purim gift since the first Purim in Persia since 2500 years ago.

    Purim gifts of the past.

    1917 – 1st Revolution in Russia, the February one (old time day, March 8th our time) Purim

    1946- Nuremberg trials had a Purim theme – ten National Socialists hung like Haman’s ten sons

    1953- Stalin poisoned on Purim day

    1991- 1st war on Iraq ends on Purim

    2003- 2nd war on Iraq starts on Purim

    2011- war on Libya starts on Purim

    The most common English language version, King James 1769 is derived from the King James 1611, which was a itself was a significant edit of prior versions.

    One of the great strengths of modern day Christianity is the fact that it is not tied to a single locked, elitist document, written in a dead language. Instead of bickering over the placement of punctuation, Christians can follow the intent of The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.

    Are you saying that education in China has become a commodity?
    Since the late 1980s, I have spoken to many Chinese students who have come to Canada to study in high school (usually grades 11 & 12) to learn English. They are always at the top of the academic pile, because they have already studied the material in more detail in China. Their marks at home, aren’t good enough to get them into university. I have also spoken to Chinese university students, as well as Korean and Filipino university students who find the course work much less strenuous than at home.
    My job required, from time to time, that foreign degrees, not covered by professional bodies, be evaluated for equivalency, before someone was hired. I seldom saw one from China or any other Oriental country, that was not fully recognized. At best, one course would be recommended. As you know, it is not uncommon for North American universities not to recognize an equivalent degree from another North American university, so it’s not really a big deal.

    Historic Catholicism (pre-Martin Luther) extensively used the dead language Latin for the Bible and ceremonies such as mass.

    Modern Christianity escaped the Latin-Only trap via multiple Bible translations into languages accessible to every literate church member. The concepts in the Bible are sacred. However, the vast number of differing (and sometime contradictory) editions makes it clear that any given printing is merely man communicating with his fellow man.
    ____

    While I would not advocate burning a Bible, there is nothing inherently sinful about it. If you dig enough, you can find rumours/stories/jokes of entire Bible runs that were pulped due to awful typos. For example, “sheep” and “sleep” are not interchangeable. And, lying down with “sheep” is definitely not permitted behaviour.

    Sorry, but that is dreaming in technicolor.

    The fact is the US is pretty much a plutocracy now, and the two parties are heavily supported by that plutocracy.

    You cannot even sit down at the card table without a huge stake.

    It’s what we call in economics, a barrier to entry.

    The many quasi-monopolies and duopolies we see in our economy work the same way, as with gigantic advertising budgets a newcomer cannot hope to match.

    A few facts on America’s plutocracy.

    The Supreme Court decision that “money is free speech.”

    Hillary Clinton burned through 1.2 billion dollars in just one campaign for one person.

    Mike Bloomberg spent about $900 million on his recent brief effort for the nomination.

    In practical terms, there are no limits on political spending and donating.

    And there are no real limits on the work of lobbies for private and special interests.

    It has become a standing joke that America has “the best Congress money can buy.”

    America’s Frankenstein military/security apparatus is not about defense, at all. It is about the maintenance of global empire. It burns through a trillion dollars a year, and it exists to serve America’s plutocracy and its establishment.

    The American tax structure has become terribly bent. It is helping to generate huge disparities, the so-called “one percent”, and support plutocracy.

    The main difference between the two parties is the Democrats talk about various domestic social measures.

    In all other respects, the parties are identical – in support for the Pentagon/security establishment, support for global empire, and support for almost continuous wars and coups, and both depend on plutocracy for a flow of funds. Voters get no choice at all in such matters.

    And the irony for the Democrats is that so long as America burns through a trillion dollars a year for supporting empire – money it doesn’t even have, all borrowed – none of large social programs can possibly happen.

    And who do you think ends up paying for all the interest on all that immense borrowing? It sure ain’t the plutocrats that its expenditure served.

    America’s political system is pretty much a rigged game. There’s no serious chance of changing it either, although a catastrophe like we’re now headed into could do that. But they are already talking in Washington of suspending habeas corpus and about which Pentagon general might step in.

    Tulsi Gabbard wasn’t even allowed to compete because she questions the wars.

    Bernie Sanders has been cheated a second time. He really isn’t a socialist, he’s an FDR progressive. But his being cheated twice by elaborate measures is the perfect example of how risk-averse America’s establishment is.

    It ain’t a pretty picture, and the reality always gives me a little chuckle when I read of American officials telling others abroad how they should do things.

    By the way, that vast expenditure on empire also gets in the way of improving America’s infrastructure – from schools to bridges.

    The genuine way to compete with China is not Trump’s noise and threats and tariffs, it is old-fashioned getting down to work and improving your competitiveness, but America’s establishment isn’t the least interested in doing that. It feels entitled to be number one in everything and so it just demands it. It’s what Putin accurately describes as “a sense of entitlement.”

    In the end, it will get America nowhere, except into trouble. The American Dream was the simple result of having been the last industrial power standing after WWII and having invested heavily for the war.

    But those conditions and that era are gone, for good. Others have invested and worked hard, and they do many things better than America does.

    After all, do we not see throughout our lives the rise and fall of great firms, of great families? It is no different with empire.

    America has been decling in relative terms in the world economy for decades. It is just theway thingswork. You cannot bully your back either like big bully in the White House thinks you can.

    Pursuing that course is almost certainly is going lead to war, and I can’t imagine that any sane person wants that, but to call some leaders in Washington sane is seriously stretching the truth.

    Trump is going to create a monetary disaster – literally, a disaster – with his zero interest rates and his notions about tons of monetary stimulus.

    Huge inflation is going to be set into motion on top of everything else, his ignorant fights with the whole world on trade, and even his threats of war.

    The US, dragging along everyone else, is marching into a swamp.

    Depending on how things go, it might bring the beginning of the final break with the dollar internationally, something which is on its way eventually.

How about Bush, I am sure he would with meeting with Cheney and Rumsfeld now to determine how the Bush clan can turn a profit from the disaster while getting ready for next week’s Mission Accomplished photo op.

    I agree with Trump’s premise that if he nationalizes businesses haphazardly the government could end up destroying them and the economy during the recovery. It is really not in the countries best interest to allow Boeing to bankrupt itself’ no matter how deserving and satisfying such a scenario would be. He has also stated clearly that the money is not to be used for buybacks. Without corporate employment, the US doesn’t and won’t have the social safety net required to protect our populace. The US will inevitably become dysfunctional and just militarize to protect the elites from a ravaged, starving public.

    Ideologically, Trump is certainly lacking, but this crisis is nuts and bolts management, which I certainly would not say he is handling as the most incompetent leader on the planet.

    The good thing about this charade is that everyone outside the USA now knows that it is not a democratic country.

    Most people inside America know this, too, even if only on a visceral level. They simply can’t bring themselves to admit the lie publically. The indoctrination of the masses has been extensive for far too long, and most have invested too much of their being in the myth to change now.

    Is there no DC politician capable of speaking the truth. Had pinned my hopes on Tulsi, not only does she drop out, she urges us fools to back Uncle Creepy Joe.

    Tulsi might very well have been extended “an offer she couldn’t refuse.”

    Hopefully it will catch up with Hitlery as well.

    Have you forgotten about Russiagate, Ukrainegate and all the minor attempts to remove Trump by the Deep State Jew Coup? There is no doubt that Trump was as “unqualified” to assume the presidency as George W but at least George W had his party backing him.

    The attempts to remove Trumpstien were not serious. If they were his enemies would bring up Yemen, Genie energy, the money laundering, the corruption of his son in law ect.

    The attacks against him are superficial while the NWO moves ahead.
