At least since the time of Marcus Tullius Cicero in the late Roman Republic everyone has certainly understood that politicians lie all the time. To be sure, President Donald Trump has been exceptional in that he has followed through on some of the promises he made in his campaign, insisting periodically that he has to do what he said he would do. Unfortunately, those choices he has made to demonstrate his accountability to his supporters have been terrible, including moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, threatening to end the Iran nuclear agreement and building a wall along the Mexican border. Following through on some other pledges has been less consistent. He has increased U.S. military engagement in Afghanistan and turned the war over to the generals while also faltering in his promise to improve relations with Russia. The potential breakthrough offered by promising exchanges during phone calls to Vladimir Putin have been negated by subsequent threats, sanctions and expulsions to satisfy hysterical congressmen and the media.

Concerning Syria, Trump last Tuesday said “I want to get out,” promising to pull U.S. troops out very soon, but was quickly brought to heel by pressure from Congress and a phone call from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that compelled him to change his mind within 24 hours. Israel wants chaos in Syria and its instrument of choice is the American military. Netanyahu has Congress to do his bidding and, for whatever reason, appears to also have Trump under his thumb.

So Donald Trump turns out to be a pretty good liar, even if one has to take into account the fact that he frequently has no idea what he is talking about. But the prize for lying at a high level has to go to the British as related to what has been going on both in the Middle East, with Russia, and also in Britain itself. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair was the first master at dissimulation in 2002 when his intelligence chief Sir Richard Dearlove told him that the Bush White House had decided on war and “the intelligence and facts were being around the policy” regarding Iraq, meaning that it was ignoring the information that did not support its desire to create a pretext for invading the country and removing Saddam Hussein. Blair presumably could have derailed the ill-fated invasion by refusing to go along with the venture, which was a war crime, but instead he fully supported George W. Bush in the attack and thereby had a hand in America’s worst foreign policy disaster ever. In 2016 an official British government inquiry determined that Bush and Blair had indeed together rushed to war. The Global Establishment has nevertheless rewarded Tony Blair for his loyalty with Clintonesque generosity. He has enjoyed a number of well-paid sinecures and is now worth in excess of $100 million.

Moving along to the present, we have Prime Minister Theresa May. May has been in serious trouble, politically speaking. After losses suffered in the recent parliamentary elections, she is clinging to power and is increasingly unpopular even within her own Conservative Party. So what do you do when you are in trouble at home? You create a foreign crisis that you have to deal with. If you are someone as venal as former American President and bottom feeder Bill Clinton you accomplish that end by firing off a few cruise missiles at a pharmaceutical plant in Sudan and at some mud huts in Afghanistan. If you are Theresa May, you up the ante considerably, coming up with a powerful enemy who is threatening you, enabling you to appear both resolute and strong in confronting a formidable foe. That is precisely what we have been seeing over the past month relating to the alleged poisoning of former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

There is quite a bit that is odd about the Skripal case. Even the increasingly neoconnish Guardian newspaper has conceded that “the British case [against Russia] has so far relied more heavily in public on circumstantial evidence and secret intelligence.” And secret intelligence, so called, has all too often been the last refuge of a scoundrel whenever a government is selling snake oil to the public. In this case, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson rushed to judgement on Russia less than forty-eight hours after the Skripals were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury England, too soon for any chemical analysis of the alleged poisoning to have taken place.

Theresa May addressed Parliament shortly thereafter to blame the Kremlin and demand a Russian official response to the event in 36 hours, even though she had to prevaricate significantly, saying that the apparent poisoning was “very likely” caused by a made-in-Russia nerve agent referred to by its generic name Novichok. She nevertheless rallied the backbenchers in Parliament, who responded with a lot of hearty “Hear! Hear!” endorsements. When Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn attempted to slow the express train down by suggesting that it might be wise to wait in see what the police investigation uncovered, he was hooted down. The British media was soon on board with a vengeance, spreading the government line that such a highly sensitive operation would require the approval of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin himself. The expulsion of Russian diplomats soon followed.

One of the strangest aspects of the Skripal case is what is going on now that daughter Yulia will soon be out of the hospital and Sergei is no longer in critical condition. A cousin Viktoria Skripal has offered to fly in from Moscow to provide support for her family, but it is believed that she will not be able to receive a visa from the British. Russian television aired a recording of a phone call between the two cousins in which Yulia said that she was disoriented but improving and that neither she nor her father had suffered permanent damage from the poisoning. The call ended abruptly and Viktoria Skripal believes that it was scripted by the British government on a controlled phone line.

Repeated requests by Russia to obtain a sample of the alleged nerve agent for testing have been rejected by the British government in spite of the fact that a military grade nerve agent would have surely killed both the Skripals as well as anyone else within 100 yards. As the latest British account of the location of the alleged poison places it on the door handle of the Scripals’ residence, the timetable element is also unconvincing. That means that the two would have spent three hours, including a stop at a pub and lunch, before succumbing on a park bench. Military grade nerve agents kill instantly.

A request to have the testing done by the politically neutral Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is in progress, but there is little enthusiasm from the British side, which does not want a Russian observer to participate in the process. The May government has already established its own narrative and certainly would have plenty to hide if the whole affair turns out to be fabricated. And fabricated it might have been as the nerve agent, if it actually exists, could have been manufactured almost anywhere.

The head of Britain’s own chemical weapons facility Porton Down has contradicted claims made by May, Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, and British Ambassador in Moscow Laurie Bristow. The lab’s Chief Executive Gary Aitkenhead has testified that he does not know if the nerve agent was actually produced in Russia, a not surprising observation as the chemical formula was revealed to the public in a scientific paper in 1992 and there are an estimated twenty countries capable of producing it. There are also possible stocks of Novichok remaining in independent countries that once were part of the Soviet Union, to include Russia’s enemy du jour Ukraine, while a false flag operation by the British themselves, the CIA or Mossad, is not unthinkable.

The resort to official Orwellian govspeak by the British is remarkable throughout the process, but is particularly painful reading regarding the treatment of the Skripals’ pets, two guinea pigs and a cat. A spokesman for the Department of the Environment reported thatThe property in Wiltshire was sealed as part of the police investigation. When a vet was able to access the property, two guinea pigs had sadly died. A cat was also found in a distressed state and a decision was taken by a veterinary surgeon to euthanize the animal to alleviate its suffering. This decision was taken in the best interests of the animal and its welfare.”

So the presence of squadrons of technicians and cops in the residence did not permit anyone to take a minute to feed the cat and guinea pigs. And the cat was killed as a purely humanitarian gesture – it’s “best interest” was apparently to die. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Finally, the best argument against the British government’s evasions about what took place in Salisbury on March 4th remains the question of motive. So the British would have one believe that Vladimir Putin personally ordered the killing of a former British double agent who had been released from a Kremlin prison in a spy swap and who was no longer capable of doing any damage to Russia. He did that in spite of the fact that he had an election coming up and would be the host of the World Cup in the summer, an event that he would want to go smoothly. So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil. Does that make sense to the reader? It doesn’t to me.

    Your decrying confirms that the British has done something wrong and they did poison Skripals in Salisbury England. This unscrupulous false flag op, crying foul and smearing the innocent for the crime they committed relentlessly is a special signature of the British/Anglo culture and trait. The following history provides the evidence the above is not allegation but fact.

    Nov 24, 1784, a British gunner on the ship “Lady Hughes” fired cannon against Chinese law and killed two Chinese in Guangzhou. The British refused to hand over the gunner to the Chinese authority for trail and called up few hundred armed sailors to stop the Chinese authority from searching the perpetrator in the British warehouses and living compound.

    Anyhow the British was outwitted and the perpetrator was tried by the Chinese, convicted and executed in according to the Chinese law; during that time the British law also gave death penalty for the same crime.

    The British had been trampling other people’s sovereignty and law like India with impunity for a couple of hundreds of years already by then. Never a British was tried and punished for the crimes, murder or not, they committed since they supplanted the Spanish. British viewed themselves above all human beings and not bound by any other people’s law. The execution of the gunner made the British Council of Supercargos feel humiliated and devastated as well as being impotent and incompetent in the eyes of their superiors in London and their peers (other Europeans) in Guangzhou.

    In order to cover their crimes and failures, the megalomaniac British decried Chinese legal system was barbaric and sanguinary relentlessly like Anonymous[338] is doing here to Russia. All the Europeans jumped on the British mudslinging bandwagon for the effort to gain extraterritoriality in China, so they could steal, loot, plunder, etc. Chinese wealth with impunity like Elizabeth I’s Sea Dogs. Soon after the “Lady Hughes” incident the view that entire Chinese legal system was barbaric and sanguinary or there is no law in China become the dominant representation of China ever since.

    The British then engineered Opium Wars for the vengeance of their “Lady Hughes” humiliation, and set to destroy the last nation denying their piracy and other unscrupulous deeds on the moral high ground. If history can be any guidance, the Anglo is not going to stop at smearing Russia; more vicious plot is going to come.

    His phrasing did not make sense. Trump hasn't built the wall, so I'm not sure how that could be an example of Trump carrying out his campaign promises.

    Despite being anti-war I would strongly support a border wall, given how inefficient and feckless the USA seems to be at handling its illegal aliens. Congress would never pass something that would meaningfully restrict illegal immigration though, everything has been through the executive branch thus far.

    A great man once wrote that the “big lie” had a force of credulity among the broad masses, as the latter were wont to engage in lying about minor quotidian matters of little or no significance while the big lies were engaged in by the mainstream press, dominated by the usual tribal suspects.

    It was the case with blaming General Ludendorff for Germany’s defeat, and it is the same case today, 100 years after the fact.

    The Mockingbird Media lies and equivocates about everything. Insofar as the deep state spider’s web of hegemony spreads all over the world and becomes more odious, the lies become more copious and more predictable, and their acceptance relies upon the lever of public credulity and kosher Newspeak.

    What the unconditional and incorrigible Trumpetistas do not realize is that those of us- a very large plurality of of Trump supporters- voted for him because he was not Hillary Clinton and had pledged to keep us out of foreign wars. We will neither support, nor abet, foreign wars for the sake of Israel, whether they are started by Trump or anyone else. Intervention in Syria against the Assad regime is a no go. Trump cannot hope to compare himself to Assad, since the latter has formed a real and effective alliance against the Christian hating head choppers with Russia and Iran. Trump is totally clueless with respect to geopolitics. He is a rank amateur.

  5. Does that make sense to the reader?

    No, it doesn’t.

    But here’s something else I don’t quite understand:

    To be sure, President Donald Trump has been exceptional in that he has followed through on some of the promises he made in his campaign, insisting periodically that he has to do what he said he would do. Unfortunately, those choices he has made to demonstrate his accountability to his supporters have been terrible, including moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, threatening to end the Iran nuclear agreement and building a wall along the Mexican border.

    Now, Trump is a sense-free random number generator, I will fully agree. But you list three “choices he has made” that you describe as “terrible:” the US embassy move to Jerusalem, the threats against Iran, and “building a wall along the Mexican border.” The first two Trump has done, and I agree that “terrible” is the right word to describe them. The third thing — the border wall — he hasn’t done. And had he done so, it wouldn’t have been “terrible” … it would have been the obvious and sensible thing to do. I think he clearly isn’t serious about building the wall, as far as one can discern the intentions of so random an individual. But your list presents three items in parallel, with one item being quite unlike the others.

    I too noticed that and agree with you. Do not understand why the National Guard can only serve in a supportive, non-enforcement role on the border. Heck, every nation uses its military to guard its borders. We need to send our military to guard our border. It's really very simple--no one can enter the US unless they have been admitted legally.

    Another thing I don't understand is how these "sanctuary" cities can so blatantly flout federal law by sheltering illegals from ICE or any federal law enforcement agencies. If any city does so, the federal government should put them on notice that ALL federal funds will be cut off.

    It’s surreal to watch such staggering levels of dishonest incompetence among our globalist “elites”.

    One of these days I am going to stop doing this (it seems to be a fool's errand, but hopefully there's some chaotic positive side-effect)... but here goes (again) -

    dishonest incompetence among our globalist “elites”
     
    One of the biggest category errors that people make when considering the political class, is that the chaos that they generate is the result of 'incompetence' (or 'stupidity', or some other such trope).

    In fact, even though they are - by and large - second- and third-quintile talent, they are ruthlessly competent... so long as you premise things correctly and have a decent guess as to what their objectives are.

    That's the key thing: their objectives are not what most normal people are led to believe. We're encouraged to think that the political class give a flying rat's ass about 'national greatness' (or even less plausibly, social welfare/public will/public good etc).

    They don't. Their objectives are all about themselves - their wealth, their social power, and their in-group reputation (among their peers, which does not include us). Blair, Bush, Straw, Hoon, Howard, Addington, Yoo, bybee. Feith, Bolton, Cheney and everyone else involved in the Iraq and Afghanistan war crimes, are doing just fine thank you very much.

    So there is no "dishonest incompetence"; there is dishonesty - as a noun - absolutely; but one thing about megalomaniacal sociopaths is that they have intense goal-focus and they dedicate that to ensuring extreme competence.

    ...they don’t care about credibility going forward. Like it won’t matter.
     
    No, they absolutely don't care about credibility ('national' or personal), because it absolutely won't matter - to them, as far as their ability to achieve their actual, personal goals is concerned.

    They know that they will leave their tax-fed positions far richer than can be explained by any plausible combinations of savings rates and rates of return; they will also be exculpated (or at the very least, not inculpated) and their public image will be given a makeover (for a price). Bush is a perfect example: his approval rating is almost 3x its level when he left office (59% now, vs 22% then).

    Adjust your conceptual framework: try to see the world through the eyes of an individual for whom a dead baby is a photo opportunity.

    Then, and only then, will you cease to be surprised, shocked, saddened [insert inappropriate emotional trope here]... you might be (as I am, often) outraged, but that would be entirely appropriate.

    “In 2016 an official British government inquiry determined that Bush and Blair had indeed together rushed to war. The Global Establishment has nevertheless rewarded Tony Blair for his loyalty with Clintonesque generosity. He has enjoyed a number of well-paid sinecures and is now worth in excess of $100 million.”
    – The character of Blair and the Establishment is well established: Blair is a major war criminal supported by the major war profiteers. His children and grandchildren are a progeny of a horrible criminal.
    What is truly amazing is the complacency of the Roman Catholic Church that still has not excommunicated and anathematized the mass murderer. Blair should be haunted and hunted for his crimes against humanity.
    With age, Blair’s face has become expressively evil. His wife Theresa Cara “Cherie” Blair shows the same acute ugliness coming from her rotten soul of a war profiteer.

    The Skripals are to be disappeared.
     
    Most likely, they are ALREADY DEAD.

    Reported plans to demolish entirely (1) Sergei Skripal's residence; (2) the restaurant where they at; and (3) a pub where Sergei and Yulia happened to stop also show that we are looking at a major theatrical production by the UK government, and seem inconsistent with the supposition that Sergei Skripal' is still alive.

    https://112.international/politics/skripal-case-ex-gru-agents-residence-pub-and-restaurant-to-be-demolished-27400.html

    Similarly, for linguistic reasons, Yulia Skripal' COULD NOT have said what she is supposed to have said in either Russian (which simply does not use the expressions in her statement) or in English (she speaks good English but not British bureaucratese). Her alleged statement was clearly written by British bureaucrats.

    Craig Murray, a former British ambassador to an ex-Soviet republic (Uzbekistan) also notes that the language is simply inconsistent with what purports to be a statement by Yulia:

    To put it plainly, as someone who has much experience of it, the English of the statement is precisely the English of an official in the UK security services and precisely not the English of somebody like Yulia Skripal or of a natural translation from Russian.
     
    https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/04/yulia-skripal-is-plainly-under-duress/comment-page-8/#comments

    The Russian embassy to the UK notes an interesting contradiction in the statement attributed to Yulia:

    Particularly amazing is the phrase “no one speaks for me” appearing in a statement which, instead of being read on camera by Yulia herself, is published at Scotland Yard [sic] website.

    Keep in mind how long ago all this is:
    Skripal was recruited around 1990 and arrested in 2004. Guess that the Russian attitude towards Skripal took the chaos of the 90′s as mitigating circumstances into account.
    Skripal served his sentence of only 13 years till 2010 when he was pardoned and given the option to leave. Russia did not revoke Skripal’s citizenship. The UK issued Skripal a passport too. On arrival in the UK Skripak was extensively debriefed by UK intelligence services. Skripal has lived for 8 years in the UK now.

    And now out of the blue this incident nicely dovetailing with May ratcheted up anti Russia language only a few months before this false flag incident and the rapidly failing traction of the Steele/Orbis/MI6 instigated Russia collusion story on the basis of that fake Trump Dossier. By the way Orbis affiliated Steele and Miller have been among Skripal’s handlers.

    A cousin Viktoria Skripal has offered to fly in from Moscow to provide support for her family, but it is believed that she will not be able to receive a visa from the British.

    Yulia is most likely DEAD. If she were alive, we would see interviews, pictures, etc.

    Russian television aired a recording of a phone call between the two cousins in which Yulia said that she was disoriented but improving and that neither she nor her father had suffered permanent damage from the poisoning. The call ended abruptly and Viktoria Skripal believes that it was scripted by the British government on a controlled phone line.

    Not Yulia? Or perhaps they spliced together some phrases recorded while she was still alive.

    Prediction: neither Yulia Skripal nor her father Sergei will be seen again in public.

    Rather doubt that Sergei and Yulia Skripal are still living and talking (as the UK government insists). If they were still alive, we would have seen breathless TV interviews, magazine stories about Yulia torn between East and West, perhaps by now even a romantic angle.

    Civilian medical researchers would line up to ask for blood and tissue samples, do batteries of medical tests etc. and and would rush out scientific papers about the mechanism and effects of the alleged poisoning.

    Instead, we hear of a bizarre alleged phone call between Yulia Skripal's cousin and her cousin Viktoria Skripal which Viktoria noted seemed "scripted" and was terminated abruptly.

    Most likely, both Sergei and Yulia were MURDERED by British intelligence services around the time of the "incident." Ironically, the strongest evidence for this theory lies in the fact that the UK continues to claim, without public verification, that both are still alive.

    BTW while we hear endless repetitions of the cool-sounding Russian term "Novichok," nobody seems keen to tell us WHICH specific compound in the "Novichok" group (known to the West since the 1980s) was allegedly used on Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

  32. It does look rather like those Syrian chemical weapon attacks that happen whenever the rebels are about to be defeated.

    I am pretty sure that it was not ordered within the British government and that most of the British government don’t know where it came from, but are willing to believe it was Russia.

    While the CIA does have plenty of form on assassinations, the risk if they were found to be assassinating in Britain seems quite high due to the close CIA links with the UK intelligence sector. But CIA agents could have paid someone else to do it.

    Mossad is the one group that can act freely in the UK, has a record of assassinating scientists, engineers etc here, and unlike CIA, can take the risk of being caught. So it’s a possibility – OTOH Israel has shown a lot less anti-Russian hatred than the US Deep State has.

    Normally I’d assume it was indeed Russia – I thought there was plenty of evidence the Polonium poisoning was Russia – and it still seems possible, but US or Mossad must be at least equally likely in this case. It’s just possible it could have been British initiated but I doubt it.

    Bernhard over at his blog, Moon of Alabama, is advocating for the poisoning being real, but being traceable to shellfish poisoning. The Skripals had a shellfish dish at a local restaurant about 40 minutes prior to their discovery on the park bench. While very serious, and potentially fatal, if addressed with respiratory and cardiac support in a timely fashion, this poisoning is survivable.

    http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/04/the-best-explanation-for-the-skripal-drama-is-food-poisoning.html

    The toxin involved in classic shellfish poisoning is a naturally occurring neurotoxin, Saxitoxin, which agent remains toxic even after boiling or steaming, exactly the food preparation techniques likely to be employed in preparing shellfish for consumption. This is, indeed, what makes it so pernicious.

    That the Brits, primed for lies in aid of the Hate On The Rooskies campaign, lit on their story is unsurprising. Of course, the denial of the authorities at the hospital that anyone , the Skripals and the supposedly affected policeman, was suffering from exposure to a chemical weapon, along with the refusal of Porton Down officials to lend credence to the hoo haw that this was surely traceable to Novichok series chemical agents identifiably produced by the Russians kind of shot some holes in the big lies.

    Anyway, cast an eye at the post at Moon of Alabama. Bernhard is pretty damn good at winnowing facts from the chaff of propaganda, and when he makes a mistake, he openly confesses it instead of doubling down on a falsehood.

    May is English, and she has the very long line of Brit Empire secret service evil at her disposal. And her move is a bold one. What it means is that she is signaling that at least if she is PM, the UK could replace the US as Fearless Leader of the actual New World Order, which is the WASP Empire with Israel and worldwide Jewry as Junior Partner #1 and Saudi Arabia elevated to Junior Partner #2 in an insane attempt to make Israel secure forever.

    The English have never been happy that the lowly Americans leaped them as A-#1 of the WASP Empire, and being English they have no permanent alliances, no permanent allies, not even kin (perhaps especially kin – which type and degree of ruthlessness impresses all Semites).

    This alliance was sealed by none other than the very epitome of WASP culture: Mr. Archetypal WASP himself, Oliver Cromwell. The Anglo-Saxon alliance with Jews precisely to wage wars against non-WASP white Christians was the logical (and inevitable if WASP culture were to acquire large scale political power) .

    By the Victorian era, virtually all Elite Brit WASPs were knowing philoSemites. The new twist was that a growing number of them were becoming obsessed with Arabs and/or Islam. decades before the Balfour Declaration, the Brit WASP Elites were wrangling among themselves over how best to use the largest and wealthiest Empire in world history to express its philoSemtism.

    The solution recently agreed upon was to elevate the Saudis. The assumption is that as the Saudis control the actual land of Mohammed, if they are elevated to suzerainty over not merely all Arabs but the entire Islamic Middle East, then the entire Islamic world can be controlled, including to allow Israel to exist in ‘peace.’

    And that means all that oil is under the indirect, but very firm, control of the WASP Empire, or as The Saker calls it: the Anglo-Zionist Empire.

    Of course, the Saudi royal family is the most amorally vicious power party in the Middle East. They would slaughter half the Sunni Arabs in order to become unrivaled suzerain over the entire Islamic world. Such monstrousness makes the House of Saud exactly the type partner that those who control the WASP Empire want as partners.

    The Russians are in the way of that beautiful plan of world domination. Russians have common sense and, much worse, they express it, even publicly. Russians know that Sunni Islam is a much worse threat to the world than is Shiite Islam. The Russians know that the Iranians are much more honorable and moral than are the Saudis. The Russians know that as bad as the Turks are, they are more honorable and trustworthy than the Saudis.

    And the Russians also know that the Anglo-Zionist Empire would be tickled pink to make all non-WASP Elite whites – all in the world – a permanent serf class, treated the way Cromwell treated the Irish, the way the Israelis treat the Palestinians.

    Overall, pretty accurate. But permit me point out a few things:

    *There is no "land of Mohammed." His mission had nothing to do with land--it was about human hearts. Also, proper spelling is Muhammad. Indeed, when his daughter after his death, asked the first caliph (Muhammad's closest companion) if she could have a few things of her father, she was told that "a prophet has no possessions."

    *There are no Islamic countries, but there are Muslim-majority countries. As scholars have noted, the correct comparison should be between Christ and Koran, not Christ and Muhammad, because (according to both Christianity and Islam), Christ is the word of God just as for Muslims the Koran is the word of God.
    , @anonymous

    Russians know that Sunni Islam is a much worse threat to the world than is Shiite Islam.
     
    Perhaps that is because the polytheist world subliminally views the Shiite deviants, with their hyper-veneration of a man, bordering on polytheism, to be closer to their own pagan spiritual faiths. You know, a certain camaraderie which comes between "co-religionists."

    Even Judaism which claims a strict faith in His Oneness, fails miserably with their pagan "in-his-image" argument of the Almighty One.

    Sunni Islam stands alone in the world, with its crystal clear and unshakeable message of True Monotheism. God is One, Infinite, Unique. In that way it is indeed a threat... a threat to the godlessness and heathenism of the world's majority.

    We true monotheists are hardly looking for "acceptance" as a "lesser threat" by the hypocritical spiritual ciphers of the world.


    And, much worse threat? Sigh!!

    In a world where white christian-jew psychopaths are running rampant, plundering and mass murdering innocents, it is bizarre to read how True Monotheism is a "worse threat" than some other...

    It is also deceitful to imply that Saudi Arabia and its gulf minions represent Sunni Islam. Their conniving treacherous ruling class are simply puppets of the Anglo-Zionist evil. The only power they have over us majority Sunnis, is their entry visa... for pilgrimage.

    Finally, let it be clear, there is no other "much worse threat to the world" than christian-jew whites. Everybody else need to content themselves with lower positions on the Worst Threat rankings.

    I watched Tucker Carlson last night as well.

    He makes great points, and I'm encouraged that he's allowed to do so on to a big and important audience.

    I remember when his predecessor, Bill O'Rielly, claimed to have seen the evidence of Saddam's WMD, and told his audience, on the run up to war, and I was appalled. As indeed, it turned out he too was lying.

    When the ZUSA was entrenched in the highly profitable war on Vietnam, there seemed to be no way to end it. Protests in the streets and at the universities, and anger at the war and war pig$ seemed to no avail.

    But then a phenomena began. Fragging.

    one wonders....

    at seven minutes in, Carlson interviews a senator. The senator does his best to lie and deceive, as only a ZUS senator can. But Tucker eviscerates him on screen.

    now if this senator, and others like him, were themselves put into peril by these serial, treasonous wars for Israel, would they still be so keen to have Americans die, slaughtering innocent people- to bolster and benefit the main enemy of America; Israel?

    I imagine the parent of a young American, who's life was sacrificed to augment the career of Lindsey Graham. Or other Americans who're fed up with the endless wars for Israel, and are willing to do something about the treasonous scum who're demanding and foisting all of these Satanic wars.

    Just as Tucker says, any general who advocates for these wars, should be required to actually visit a battlefield, so too I wonder about the politicians, and how they eventually have to go home, and live among their constituents. What if some of the worst of them, like Graham for instance, were to actually suffer some consequence for all the evil he's done, and continues to do?

    Of course I'm not advocating anything illegal. Just ruminating on potential solutions to the Eternal Wars for Israel - which are nothing more or less than a continuation of the first two World Wars (for Israel) duh

    END the FED!

    A cousin Viktoria Skripal has offered to fly in from Moscow to provide support for her family, but it is believed that she will not be able to receive a visa from the British.
     
    Yulia is most likely DEAD. If she were alive, we would see interviews, pictures, etc.

    Russian television aired a recording of a phone call between the two cousins in which Yulia said that she was disoriented but improving and that neither she nor her father had suffered permanent damage from the poisoning. The call ended abruptly and Viktoria Skripal believes that it was scripted by the British government on a controlled phone line.

     

    Not Yulia? Or perhaps they spliced together some phrases recorded while she was still alive.

    Prediction: neither Yulia Skripal nor her father Sergei will be seen again in public.

    These ridiculous, suicidal gas attacks by Assad seem to coincide not only with battleground victories against the head-choppers, but co-incidentally with Israel’s murderous attacks on unarmed Palestinians “throwing stones”.

    What nobody seems to have picked up is the emphasis – and red lines – on Gas; gas, gas attacks. Why is gas so much worse than being dismembered, disembowelled, and mutilated by high explosives? Certainly I would favour unconsciousness and death by gas before being smashed to pieces by depleted uranium.

    These relentlessly repeated claims are an exercise with the dual purpose of providing a subliminal message about the greatest tragedy in human history, repeated ad nauseam. The massive ‘gassing’ of European Jews some 65 years ago. Lest we forget.

    It does look rather like those Syrian chemical weapon attacks that happen whenever the rebels are about to be defeated.

    I am pretty sure that it was not ordered within the British government and that most of the British government don't know where it came from, but are willing to believe it was Russia.

    While the CIA does have plenty of form on assassinations, the risk if they were found to be assassinating in Britain seems quite high due to the close CIA links with the UK intelligence sector. But CIA agents could have paid someone else to do it.

    Mossad is the one group that can act freely in the UK, has a record of assassinating scientists, engineers etc here, and unlike CIA, can take the risk of being caught. So it's a possibility - OTOH Israel has shown a lot less anti-Russian hatred than the US Deep State has.

    Normally I'd assume it was indeed Russia - I thought there was plenty of evidence the Polonium poisoning was Russia - and it still seems possible, but US or Mossad must be at least equally likely in this case. It's just possible it could have been British initiated but I doubt it.

    I do think it's most likely the person who actually poisoned them was not an employee of any agency.

    Agreed, but as an American, I think our CIA is nothing more than a branch of the Israeli government.

    You look throughout the US government, years of ownership of the politicians has lead to most political appointments being run by zionist jews, who once in position start converting the institution into a 100% controlled branch of the zionists.

    What is going on you say? the Jewish lobby AKA Israel lobby is going on.

    Sadam's Iraq, Gaddafi's Libya, Mubarak's Egypt, Rouhani's and Khamenei's Iran and Assad's Syria: three first are gone through either direct military "humanitarian" interventions or CIA instigated "color" revolutions. The last two are on the verge of another "humanitarian" military intervention instigated by the Jewish lobby, because all five have been and last two still are historical Israel's foes.

    Harvard’s JFK School of Government professor of International Affairs Stephen Walt and Chicago University professor of Political Sciences John Mearsheimer explain clearly in their 2006 paper what the Jewish lobby is and what exactly is its modus operandi to steer US foreign policy in Israel’s favour.

    The following link brings to a comment of mine explaining what the Lobby is and how effectively operates to steer US foreign policy through four excerpts from their well researched 2006 paper The Israel Lobby

    http://www.unz.com/article/what-the-alt-right-and-regressive-left-have-in-common/#comment-2276493


    The Israeli government and pro-Israel groups in the United States have worked together to shape the administration’s policy towards Iraq, Syria and Iran, as well as its grand scheme for reordering the Middle East.
     

    Pressure from Israel and the Lobby was not the only factor behind the decision to attack Iraq in March 2003, but it was critical. Some Americans believe that this was a war for oil, but there is hardly any direct evidence to support this claim. Instead, the war was motivated in good part by a desire to make Israel more secure. According to Philip Zelikow, a former member of the president’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, and now a counsellor to Condoleezza Rice, the ‘real threat’ from Iraq was not a threat to the United States. The ‘unstated threat’ was the ‘threat against Israel’, Zelikow told an audience at the University of Virginia in September 2002. ‘The American government,’ he added, ‘doesn’t want to lean too hard on it rhetorically, because it is not a popular sell.’

    That's probably because the usual thugs don't need to do that any longer since they control virtually everything.

    A couple of anecdotes to illustrate my point.:

    2 of the reasons we don’t hear much about mobsters these days are that the press and judiciary are owned by them and if you do get something published, you run the risk of getting snuffed. They probably don’t stop at mere blinding anymore.

    Victor Riesel was an American newspaper journalist and columnist who specialized in news related to labor unions. In 1956 a mobster threw sulfuric acid in his face on a public street in Chicago causing his permanent blindness.


    “Treason is a strong word, but not too strong to characterize the situation in which the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.” This indictment launched a nine-part series of articles entitled “Treason of the Senate.”

    The history of lies and subterfuge is long and has a revered place in Jewish history:

    "But that night the king, being sleepless, ordered the chronicles of the nation to be read to him. Recalling that Mordecai had never been rewarded for his service in revealing the plot of the eunuchs, he asked Haman, the next day, to suggest a suitable reward for one "whom the king desired to honour". Thinking it was himself that the king had in mind, Haman suggested the use of the king's apparel and insignia. These the king ordered to be bestowed on Mordecai.[9]
    Esther denouncing Haman by Ernest Normand.

    Only at the second dinner party, when the king was sufficiently beguiled by her charms, did Esther reveal for the first time her identity as a Jew, and accused Haman of the plot to destroy her and her people. The king ordered that Haman should be hanged on the gallows prepared for Mordecai, and, confiscating his property, bestowed it upon the intended victim.[9] The king then appointed Mordecai as his prime minister, and issued a decree authorizing the Jews to defend themselves.[8]

    The Jews established an annual feast, the feast of Purim, in memory of their deliverance"

    Churchill used poison gas in Damascus in 1918.
    He defended what he did in parliament.

    Churchill advocated both the use of gas as well as terror, so I find it interesting that so many suddenly tender hearted “officials” and war criminals now affect squeamishness regarding the use of it, yet fail to condemn Israel for its hideous, terroristic use of white phosphorous among other crimes

    Winston S. Churchill: departmental minute (Churchill papers: 16/16) 12 May 1919 War Office
    I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas.

    I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas …gasses can be used which cause great inconvenience and would spread a lively terror

    from Companion Volume 4, Part 1 of the official biography, WINSTON S. CHURCHILL, by Martin Gilbert (London: Heinemann, 1976)

    I challenge anyone to name a modern war prosecuted by the US government and its allies that did not involve at its root the direct fabrication of blatant lies on enormous levels, both as a casus belli and also to manipulate public opinion in favor of hostilities.

    The clandestine activity represented by these *provocations* isn't even good spycraft. The Skripal case and the latest use of chlorine gas in Syria are risible, clumsy, amateur attempts to wangle the empire into war that the callowest rube could see through. And yet, it's working its magic on the media. The politicians, suborned by the war machine, give unanimous bipartisan assent.

    Saddam's WMD, Gulf of Tonkin, etc., etc. And now a ridiculous false flag attack in Syria. Did it take place at all? But the narrative is all. The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than in Germany in the late 1930s and nobody goes around beating up journalists or sending them to a KZ. The Syrian Gov't is winning the civil war, things are going well but what Assad really needs is to have the crap bombed out of his military by Uncle Sam. What transparent bullshit.

    The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than in Germany in the late 1930s

    Who controlled the press there and then?

    What can be said about the control and conformity of the Soviet, British and American press of the time?

    …and nobody goes around beating up journalists or sending them to a KZ.

    That’s probably because the usual thugs don’t need to do that any longer since they control virtually everything.

    A couple of anecdotes to illustrate my point.:

    2 of the reasons we don’t hear much about mobsters these days are that the press and judiciary are owned by them and if you do get something published, you run the risk of getting snuffed. They probably don’t stop at mere blinding anymore.

    Victor Riesel was an American newspaper journalist and columnist who specialized in news related to labor unions. In 1956 a mobster threw sulfuric acid in his face on a public street in Chicago causing his permanent blindness.

    “Treason is a strong word, but not too strong to characterize the situation in which the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.” This indictment launched a nine-part series of articles entitled “Treason of the Senate.”

    -David Graham Phillips, Cosmopolitan magazine, February 1906

    In 1911 Phillips was shot multiple times by Fitzhugh Coyle Goldsborough, a Harvard-educated scion of a prominent Maryland family ,at Gramercy Park in New York City.

    The intent of my post was to show that the MSM here is conformist and doesn't like to stray far from what the USG is claiming and what other journalists are writing. Rather than explore the topics you raise, as worthy of exploration as they might be, I thought I'd offer what newspapers around the USA were saying about Saddam's WMD after Powell's UNSC speech; seems a bit more germane.


    The Powell evidence will be persuasive to anyone who is still persuadable.

    The Wall Street Journal


    Piling fact upon fact, photo upon photo Wednesday, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell methodically demonstrated why Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein remains dangerous to his own people, Iraq’s neighbors…

    The Los Angeles Times


    On Wednesday, America's most reluctant warrior, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, presented succinct and damning evidence of Saddam's enormous threat to world peace.

    Arizona Republic



    Saddam Hussein's illicit arsenal of biological and chemical weapons, as well as the equally illicit means that he possesses to deliver them, poses a tangible and urgent danger to U.S. and world security. Millions of innocent lives are at risk.


    Dallas Morning News



    At some point, the world chooses to believe President George W. Bush and Secretary Powell or the international community chooses to side with Saddam Hussein and those who broadcast his lies to the world. …Powell has painstakingly presented a strong case against Iraq.

    Greenville News/South Carolina



    Iraq is busted. U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell laid out the case clearly. No one hearing Powell's presentation to the United Nations Security Council could doubt Iraq's actions and intentions.

    Jacksonville Times-Union/Florida



    The threat is real and at our door. Sept. 11, 2001, stripped away the belief that the United States can peacefully coexist with evil. Prove it, they said. Powell has.

    Charleston Daily Mail/West Virginia


    We are a country always loath to fight unless provoked. The reluctance of Americans to initiate a war needlessly does the nation credit. But this is not a needless war, nor is it unprovoked. Powell laid out the need, and explained the provocation, in step-by-step fashion that cannot be refuted without resorting to fantasy.

    Chicago Sun-Times



    The Dispatch repeatedly has called on the Bush administration to make a compelling case that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is developing weapons of mass destruction and hiding these efforts from U.N. inspectors. Yesterday, Secretary of State Colin Powell made that case before the Security Council.

    Columbus Dispatch



    Powell has methodically proved Iraq's failure to comply with U.N. mandates. With each passing day, Iraq's own choices move it closer to a war that full compliance would prevent.

    Indianapolis Star



    Secretary of State Colin Powell's 90-minute presentation to the U.N. Security Council, buttressed with surveillance photographs and recorded phone conversations, should remove all doubt that Iraq's Saddam Hussein has developed and hides weapons of mass destruction, in violation of U.N. resolutions.

    Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel


    Powell's speech to the U.N. Security Council presented not just one ‘smoking gun’ but a battery of them, more than sufficient to dispel any lingering doubt about the threat the Iraqi dictator poses.

    Denver Post


    The United States has made a compelling case that Iraq has failed to rid itself of weapons of mass destruction. This failure violates the U.N. Security Council resolution of late last year which ordered Iraq to disarm. As a consequence and it is a grave one, the Security Council must act now to disarm Iraq by force.


    Salt Lake City Tribune


    Powell has connected enough dots to tie Iraq to al-Qaeda and show that this alliance is a threat to all of Europe as well as the United States.

    Manchester Union Leader


    In fact, the speech provided proof that Saddam continues to refuse to obey U.N. resolutions. Any amount of time he has now to comply fully and openly with U.N. demands should be measured in days or a few weeks - and no longer.


    Portland Press-Herald/Maine

    the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.”

    -David Graham Phillips, Cosmopolitan magazine, February 1906
     
    and to think that was over a hundred years ago

    they've only gotten better at it with time

    if you read The Protocols, one thing that I remember was the contemptuous way it referred to the goyim as having the minds and souls of beasts. Lumbering, mindless cattle, chewing their cud in a kind of catatonic stupor.

    what else can we conclude about the kind of people who would vote for Lindsey Graham or John McCain? These guys get reelected again and again.

    The saddest and most tragic thing about The Protocols is that the goyim seem to be as accommodating to the Elders as any farm animal can be. At least a pig might be apprehensive of the trip to the slaughter house. I remember a video where a pig jumped out of a moving truck, and walked off. But the goyim suit up their children and hand them over as cannon fodder, to be slaughtered on behalf of their enemies.

    In the last century, there may have been an excuse for not knowing the nature of the ZUS government, being as ((they)) controlled virtually every source of information.

    But today it's all out there. Today everybody knows that all of these wars are for Israel, at the direct expense of America's blood and treasure and (I won't say good) name.

    And yet, (especially from the Christian churches) the call to suit up the young people to die in more wars- slaughtering innocents - for our enemies, will resound in the nation.

    If I were a British soldier, told to kill some Russian soldier, because Putin is Hitler.. as my daughter languishes in a mental hospital, having been gang raped into a shell of a human being, and my son was brutalized by a British aristocrat, but now I'm called up to kill Russians in a contrived World War, to benefit the pedophile Peerage and their ((patrons)), I don't know how I'd resist pointing that weapon away from the Russian, and towards England's true enemies.

    So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil. Does that make sense to the reader?

    Yes, absolutely. Sounds 100% vintage Putin, although I don’t consider these impulses “pure evil” except in the eyes of partisans. It’s also untrue that he “shot himself in the foot”, as the event, if anything, strengthened his image for the election. The world cup has not been cancelled and is at no risk of being cancelled even if some spoiled-sports don’t show up.
    I’d also add that Skripal was released by Medvedev, not Putin, that the claim Skripal could no longer do damage to Russia is supposition, and that the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks makes the threat toward bigger fish to fry stronger.
    None of that however proves Putin did it. It’s just a possibility. After the dissolution of the USSR, there was enough chaos that private individuals seeking revenge could have gotten hold of military poisons. So this can also be a private act of revenge by someone with access and knowhow. It could also be the work of Ukraine or someone else trying to frame Putin.

    To you, perhaps.

    In reality, it's almost inconceivable that Putin, who is on record as saying not that traitors like Skripal will be killed but that their own treasonous nature will cause them to suffer and die (hardly an unusual view for any patriot), would concoct or allow such an absurdly involved and gratuitously costly (in diplomatic and economic terms) method of trying to send some sort of message.

    Frankly I can't see any reason not to accept George Galloway's opinion in the video posted in #38 above of anyone who so desperately twists reality into a form that allows them to believe the British government's case against the Russian government.

    It’s also untrue that he “shot himself in the foot”, as the event, if anything, strengthened his image for the election.
     
    The election that he was so certain to win he didn't even bother to campaign, according to the NYT? Sure, it makes absolute sense that it would be simpler to conduct a hugely emotive "wmd" attack on British territory, in a manner calculated to have the maximum diplomatic and economic costs to Russia, rather than give a couple more speeches.

    Though of course it was not the attack but the British government's, and the rest of the US sphere's, response that arguably gave him an electoral boost. How stupid does that make them?

    I’d also add that Skripal was released by Medvedev, not Putin
     
    And of course Putin would have had no input into such decisions. After all Putin was PM at the time and Medvedev rightly seen as merely a placeholder in the Presidency to allow Putin to get around term limits.

    that the claim Skripal could no longer do damage to Russia is supposition
     
    But far less speculative than the rather far-fetched supposition that he was somehow still in a position to do Russia harm, after serving four years in prison in Russia, and being exchanged, then living in Britain for 7 years under his own name and with his address in the public domain, and with no protection.

    , and that the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks makes the threat toward bigger fish to fry stronger.
     
    If the Russians want to warn their expats, a few bullets in the backs of heads would do so far more convincingly and at far less cost than this pantomime.

    But by all means keep making excuses for this literal nonsense. By the way, how did the fact that they apparently miraculously survived an attack with a poison "8-10 times more deadly than VX" fit into the "message", despite not getting any treatment whatsoever for several hours?
    , @EugeneGur

    It’s also untrue that he “shot himself in the foot”, as the event, if anything, strengthened his image for the election.
     
    What strengthened his image was an insane hysterics by the UK and the West in general. The Russians do tend to consolidate when perceive themselves under external threat.

    the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks
     
    Neither Putin personally nor the Russian government in general have ever shown themselves to be petty. On the contrary, one of the notable qualities of Putin's is that he believes, as we Russians put it, "the crown would not fall off his head if he bows". Apparently, he feels strong, so he is not afraid to be magnanimous and make concessions. This quality is much appreciated by some but drives other people crazy.

    None of that however proves Putin did it. It’s just a possibility.
     
    Theoretically, it's a possibility that the Martians did it. However, given the behavior of the UK authorities, there is no reason to believe anything even remotely like the picture described happened in reality. There is a scientific impossibility to identify the agent, first, as fast as it was supposedly done, and, second, unless they had a sample and/or detailed information in their possession. It's scientifically impossible to establish provenance unless the UK had samples of both the agent used and a comparison sample. Multiple comparison samples, I should say, since there are many such compounds. But if they did, the whole premise "only Russia could have done it" goes out of the window.

    Add here the inconsistency of the symptoms and the outcome with the "military grade" nerve agent poisoning - and here you have a complete a story of a very clumsy false flag operation.
    , @Joe Correa
    So are you implicitly suggesting Putin tried to kill a Mr Nobody with... wait for it... a f*cking military grade nerve agent with 10x the power of VX!? and failed to kill the tough-as-nails Skripal after succesful delivery!? and his daughter!?

    Come on now. Honest.

    Are you f*cking kidding me!?

    Besides that, they do have special compounds that give you a good ol' heart attack and leave no trace, you silly boy. They had them in the 70's, God knows what they've got now.

    Toward the end, Giraldi stumbles upon the Brits' true motive for cooking up this affair, the upcoming soccer World Cup, but he does not fully explore it.

    The clue is in the history of abysmal failure of the English teams at those World Cups. As the supposed motherland of soccer, the British have lost face, and they simply can't stomach the prospect of another ignominious first-round exit. So, what to do? Simple - create a pretext for "boycotting" the venture while putting the blame squarely on the host.

    I can’t find the comment because the comment archive is down — I think it was annamaria who reported that the British were holding assets of Russian oligarchs and that Russia wanted the funds back. The speculation was that Teresa May would take possession of the assets.

    As these two articles state, most of the Russian billionaire oligarchs are Jewish

    US Treasury Putin List Features Jewish Billionaires Times of Israel

    LOL! Denial proves guilt, forsooth!

    Michael Kenny, George Galloway is talking to you, too, in the talk radio piece linked in #38 above.

    The claim that the head of Porton Down “contradicted” British government claims comes from the anonymous “Moon of Alabama” website.

    No it doesn’t. It’s in the public domain, since the BBC interviewed him after the clownish Boris Johnson claimed on the record that he had been directly assured by Porton Down experts that the material came from Russia, and he denied that Porton Down had been able to identify the origin.

    How far are you willing to go in discrediting yourself to try to save this failed narrative?

    Agreed, but as an American, I think our CIA is nothing more than a branch of the Israeli government.

    You look throughout the US government, years of ownership of the politicians has lead to most political appointments being run by zionist jews, who once in position start converting the institution into a 100% controlled branch of the zionists.

  68. I am very fond of the British. They have provided a good deal of what makes the US a healthy and blessed place to live.

    But I will admit that I was disappointed in PM Blair on the Iraq invasion and that of Afghanistan. It seemed so blatantly obvious to me, that I thought there was no way the prime minister would buy in. I was wrong. But then who would have believed that the Tory’s would abandon natural relations for same sex relations, muchless marriage.

    It’s unclear how to respond when the leadership is so afraid that they advance anything to avoid grappling with hard reality. PM May has the hurdle of guiding Great Britain out of the EU.

    I wonder if all of this is to avoid that.

    @Reactionary Utopian

    Does that make sense to the reader?
     
    No, it doesn't.

    But here's something else I don't quite understand:

    To be sure, President Donald Trump has been exceptional in that he has followed through on some of the promises he made in his campaign, insisting periodically that he has to do what he said he would do. Unfortunately, those choices he has made to demonstrate his accountability to his supporters have been terrible, including moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, threatening to end the Iran nuclear agreement and building a wall along the Mexican border.
     
    Now, Trump is a sense-free random number generator, I will fully agree. But you list three "choices he has made" that you describe as "terrible:" the US embassy move to Jerusalem, the threats against Iran, and "building a wall along the Mexican border." The first two Trump has done, and I agree that "terrible" is the right word to describe them. The third thing -- the border wall -- he hasn't done. And had he done so, it wouldn't have been "terrible" ... it would have been the obvious and sensible thing to do. I think he clearly isn't serious about building the wall, as far as one can discern the intentions of so random an individual. But your list presents three items in parallel, with one item being quite unlike the others.

    I too noticed that and agree with you. Do not understand why the National Guard can only serve in a supportive, non-enforcement role on the border. Heck, every nation uses its military to guard its borders. We need to send our military to guard our border. It’s really very simple–no one can enter the US unless they have been admitted legally.

    Another thing I don’t understand is how these “sanctuary” cities can so blatantly flout federal law by sheltering illegals from ICE or any federal law enforcement agencies. If any city does so, the federal government should put them on notice that ALL federal funds will be cut off.

    Another person said the president must make the federal military presence permanent. One knows the Potemkin purpose of the whole exercise from the use of the National Guard in small numbers on a temporary basis with unclear mission. What is still bedrock policy is that any border official will serve a "welcome and process" function only. The word "repel" is forbidden in all discussion.

    In short, betrayal.

    He did that in spite of the fact that he had an election coming up and would be the host of the World Cup in the summer, an event that he would want to go smoothly. So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil. Does that make sense to the reader? It doesn’t to me.
     
    Well, there is a pattern evident here. We are also supposed to believe that the Assad government carries out gratuitous chemical attacks at precisely the worst possible moments for itself, to no plausible benefit and in fact in direct opposition to its own interests, seemingly out of pure joy in doing evil.

    Those who claim to believe this are - there's no kind way to put this - idiots or liars. Given that this includes almost the entirety of the US political and media elites, where does this leave the US?

    Here's a rare exception to the above, in the US media elite crowd. Tucker Carlson proving to be one of the rare, precious few who "stands athwart the rush to war, yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it":

    https://youtu.be/M28aYkLRlm0

    I watched Tucker Carlson last night as well.

    He makes great points, and I’m encouraged that he’s allowed to do so on to a big and important audience.

    I remember when his predecessor, Bill O’Rielly, claimed to have seen the evidence of Saddam’s WMD, and told his audience, on the run up to war, and I was appalled. As indeed, it turned out he too was lying.

    When the ZUSA was entrenched in the highly profitable war on Vietnam, there seemed to be no way to end it. Protests in the streets and at the universities, and anger at the war and war pig$ seemed to no avail.

    But then a phenomena began. Fragging.

    one wonders….

    at seven minutes in, Carlson interviews a senator. The senator does his best to lie and deceive, as only a ZUS senator can. But Tucker eviscerates him on screen.

    now if this senator, and others like him, were themselves put into peril by these serial, treasonous wars for Israel, would they still be so keen to have Americans die, slaughtering innocent people- to bolster and benefit the main enemy of America; Israel?

    I imagine the parent of a young American, who’s life was sacrificed to augment the career of Lindsey Graham. Or other Americans who’re fed up with the endless wars for Israel, and are willing to do something about the treasonous scum who’re demanding and foisting all of these Satanic wars.

    Just as Tucker says, any general who advocates for these wars, should be required to actually visit a battlefield, so too I wonder about the politicians, and how they eventually have to go home, and live among their constituents. What if some of the worst of them, like Graham for instance, were to actually suffer some consequence for all the evil he’s done, and continues to do?

    Of course I’m not advocating anything illegal. Just ruminating on potential solutions to the Eternal Wars for Israel – which are nothing more or less than a continuation of the first two World Wars (for Israel) duh

    END the FED!

    I can't find the comment because the comment archive is down -- I think it was annamaria who reported that the British were holding assets of Russian oligarchs and that Russia wanted the funds back. The speculation was that Teresa May would take possession of the assets.

    As these two articles state, most of the Russian billionaire oligarchs are Jewish

    US Treasury Putin List Features Jewish Billionaires Times of Israel

    So at least (conspiracy theory) part of the Skripal scheme is for Teresa May to be an angel and return their assets to the Jewish billionaires who stole Russian wealth fair and square.

    WASPs allied with Jews of other nations, WASPs making deals with and for Jews at the expense of non-WASP whites – sounds exactly like Archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell.

    it was the American WASPs who voted for Trump, because he said he'd end the wars, and do other common-sense things. Like end the ZUS government's overt war on it's dying WASP population.

    I can hardly think of a group of people more marginalized and disenfranchised than America's WASPs. And sure, they're being betrayed by their own, of course, but no more so than the Catholics are being betrayed by the Vatican.

    the cowardice and venality of the goyim leadership is fulsome across the landscape, from Catholic France and Italy and Poland and beyond. And yes, it includes the WASPs of England and the ZUS, but to pretend that all of these evils are emanating out of the WASP power structure, even as WASPs are a dying breed- their nations invaded, and their identity demonized, is beyond ludicrous.

    Theresa May as more evil than Bill Clinton? That will sound odd to some, but I think it is true. Hillary is the pure evil half of the Clinton marriage. Bill is simply charming and filled with a desire to amass enough power to have a group adore him as he finds new panties to explore.

    May is English, and she has the very long line of Brit Empire secret service evil at her disposal. And her move is a bold one. What it means is that she is signaling that at least if she is PM, the UK could replace the US as Fearless Leader of the actual New World Order, which is the WASP Empire with Israel and worldwide Jewry as Junior Partner #1 and Saudi Arabia elevated to Junior Partner #2 in an insane attempt to make Israel secure forever.

    The English have never been happy that the lowly Americans leaped them as A-#1 of the WASP Empire, and being English they have no permanent alliances, no permanent allies, not even kin (perhaps especially kin - which type and degree of ruthlessness impresses all Semites).

    This alliance was sealed by none other than the very epitome of WASP culture: Mr. Archetypal WASP himself, Oliver Cromwell. The Anglo-Saxon alliance with Jews precisely to wage wars against non-WASP white Christians was the logical (and inevitable if WASP culture were to acquire large scale political power) .

    By the Victorian era, virtually all Elite Brit WASPs were knowing philoSemites. The new twist was that a growing number of them were becoming obsessed with Arabs and/or Islam. decades before the Balfour Declaration, the Brit WASP Elites were wrangling among themselves over how best to use the largest and wealthiest Empire in world history to express its philoSemtism.

    The solution recently agreed upon was to elevate the Saudis. The assumption is that as the Saudis control the actual land of Mohammed, if they are elevated to suzerainty over not merely all Arabs but the entire Islamic Middle East, then the entire Islamic world can be controlled, including to allow Israel to exist in 'peace.'

    And that means all that oil is under the indirect, but very firm, control of the WASP Empire, or as The Saker calls it: the Anglo-Zionist Empire.

    Of course, the Saudi royal family is the most amorally vicious power party in the Middle East. They would slaughter half the Sunni Arabs in order to become unrivaled suzerain over the entire Islamic world. Such monstrousness makes the House of Saud exactly the type partner that those who control the WASP Empire want as partners.

    The Russians are in the way of that beautiful plan of world domination. Russians have common sense and, much worse, they express it, even publicly. Russians know that Sunni Islam is a much worse threat to the world than is Shiite Islam. The Russians know that the Iranians are much more honorable and moral than are the Saudis. The Russians know that as bad as the Turks are, they are more honorable and trustworthy than the Saudis.

    And the Russians also know that the Anglo-Zionist Empire would be tickled pink to make all non-WASP Elite whites - all in the world - a permanent serf class, treated the way Cromwell treated the Irish, the way the Israelis treat the Palestinians.

    Overall, pretty accurate. But permit me point out a few things:

    *There is no “land of Mohammed.” His mission had nothing to do with land–it was about human hearts. Also, proper spelling is Muhammad. Indeed, when his daughter after his death, asked the first caliph (Muhammad’s closest companion) if she could have a few things of her father, she was told that “a prophet has no possessions.”

    *There are no Islamic countries, but there are Muslim-majority countries. As scholars have noted, the correct comparison should be between Christ and Koran, not Christ and Muhammad, because (according to both Christianity and Islam), Christ is the word of God just as for Muslims the Koran is the word of God.

    The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than in Germany in the late 1930s

     

    Who controlled the press there and then?

    What can be said about the control and conformity of the Soviet, British and American press of the time?


    ...and nobody goes around beating up journalists or sending them to a KZ.
     
    That's probably because the usual thugs don't need to do that any longer since they control virtually everything.

    A couple of anecdotes to illustrate my point.:

    2 of the reasons we don’t hear much about mobsters these days are that the press and judiciary are owned by them and if you do get something published, you run the risk of getting snuffed. They probably don’t stop at mere blinding anymore.

    Victor Riesel was an American newspaper journalist and columnist who specialized in news related to labor unions. In 1956 a mobster threw sulfuric acid in his face on a public street in Chicago causing his permanent blindness.


    “Treason is a strong word, but not too strong to characterize the situation in which the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.” This indictment launched a nine-part series of articles entitled “Treason of the Senate.”

    -David Graham Phillips, Cosmopolitan magazine, February 1906

    In 1911 Phillips was shot multiple times by Fitzhugh Coyle Goldsborough, a Harvard-educated scion of a prominent Maryland family ,at Gramercy Park in New York City.

     

    The intent of my post was to show that the MSM here is conformist and doesn’t like to stray far from what the USG is claiming and what other journalists are writing. Rather than explore the topics you raise, as worthy of exploration as they might be, I thought I’d offer what newspapers around the USA were saying about Saddam’s WMD after Powell’s UNSC speech; seems a bit more germane.

    The Powell evidence will be persuasive to anyone who is still persuadable.

    The Wall Street Journal

    Piling fact upon fact, photo upon photo Wednesday, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell methodically demonstrated why Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein remains dangerous to his own people, Iraq’s neighbors…

    The Los Angeles Times

    On Wednesday, America’s most reluctant warrior, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, presented succinct and damning evidence of Saddam’s enormous threat to world peace.

    Arizona Republic

    Saddam Hussein’s illicit arsenal of biological and chemical weapons, as well as the equally illicit means that he possesses to deliver them, poses a tangible and urgent danger to U.S. and world security. Millions of innocent lives are at risk.

    Dallas Morning News

    At some point, the world chooses to believe President George W. Bush and Secretary Powell or the international community chooses to side with Saddam Hussein and those who broadcast his lies to the world. …Powell has painstakingly presented a strong case against Iraq.

    Greenville News/South Carolina

    Iraq is busted. U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell laid out the case clearly. No one hearing Powell’s presentation to the United Nations Security Council could doubt Iraq’s actions and intentions.

    Jacksonville Times-Union/Florida

    The threat is real and at our door. Sept. 11, 2001, stripped away the belief that the United States can peacefully coexist with evil. Prove it, they said. Powell has.

    Charleston Daily Mail/West Virginia

    We are a country always loath to fight unless provoked. The reluctance of Americans to initiate a war needlessly does the nation credit. But this is not a needless war, nor is it unprovoked. Powell laid out the need, and explained the provocation, in step-by-step fashion that cannot be refuted without resorting to fantasy.

    Chicago Sun-Times

    The Dispatch repeatedly has called on the Bush administration to make a compelling case that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is developing weapons of mass destruction and hiding these efforts from U.N. inspectors. Yesterday, Secretary of State Colin Powell made that case before the Security Council.

    Columbus Dispatch

    Powell has methodically proved Iraq’s failure to comply with U.N. mandates. With each passing day, Iraq’s own choices move it closer to a war that full compliance would prevent.

    Indianapolis Star

    Secretary of State Colin Powell’s 90-minute presentation to the U.N. Security Council, buttressed with surveillance photographs and recorded phone conversations, should remove all doubt that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein has developed and hides weapons of mass destruction, in violation of U.N. resolutions.

    Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

    Powell’s speech to the U.N. Security Council presented not just one ‘smoking gun’ but a battery of them, more than sufficient to dispel any lingering doubt about the threat the Iraqi dictator poses.

    Denver Post

    The United States has made a compelling case that Iraq has failed to rid itself of weapons of mass destruction. This failure violates the U.N. Security Council resolution of late last year which ordered Iraq to disarm. As a consequence and it is a grave one, the Security Council must act now to disarm Iraq by force.

    Salt Lake City Tribune

    Powell has connected enough dots to tie Iraq to al-Qaeda and show that this alliance is a threat to all of Europe as well as the United States.

    Manchester Union Leader

    In fact, the speech provided proof that Saddam continues to refuse to obey U.N. resolutions. Any amount of time he has now to comply fully and openly with U.N. demands should be measured in days or a few weeks – and no longer.

    Your comment is well taken but I'd like to point out a couple of ways to hone your mostly correct impressions of the press. 1.) Please don't call the corporate propaganda "MSM" because that's a subtle way of legitimizing it. It is not mainstream in that it works against the interests of most Americans. 2.) That media is little more than a tool of the interests, and most "journalists" are parrots and propagandists. It's obvious that bulk of their info is obtained from the government which itself is a tool of the big money crowd.

    I think that your comment would read more correctly this way.:

    The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than it allegedly was in Germany in the late 1930s.

    “… this entire myth, so prevalent then and even now about Hitler, and about the Japanese, is a tissue of fallacies from beginning to end. Every plank in this nightmare evidence is either completely untrue or not entirely the truth.
    If people should learn this intellectual fraud about Hitler's Germany, then they will begin to ask questions, and searching questions…”

    The U.S. is controlled by Zionists and Zionists are the greatest liars on earth , they lied about 911, the wars in the middle east , the false flags that have been perpetrated on America, they lied about the FED, they are the mother of all liars, and they are destroying America.

    One of the zionists biggest lies was 911, which was done by Israel and the zionist controlled deep state and we are being lied into our destruction.

    The history of lies and subterfuge is long and has a revered place in Jewish history:

    “But that night the king, being sleepless, ordered the chronicles of the nation to be read to him. Recalling that Mordecai had never been rewarded for his service in revealing the plot of the eunuchs, he asked Haman, the next day, to suggest a suitable reward for one “whom the king desired to honour”. Thinking it was himself that the king had in mind, Haman suggested the use of the king’s apparel and insignia. These the king ordered to be bestowed on Mordecai.[9]
    Esther denouncing Haman by Ernest Normand.

    Only at the second dinner party, when the king was sufficiently beguiled by her charms, did Esther reveal for the first time her identity as a Jew, and accused Haman of the plot to destroy her and her people.

    The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than in Germany in the late 1930s

     

    Who controlled the press there and then?

    What can be said about the control and conformity of the Soviet, British and American press of the time?


    ...and nobody goes around beating up journalists or sending them to a KZ.
     
    That's probably because the usual thugs don't need to do that any longer since they control virtually everything.

    A couple of anecdotes to illustrate my point.:

    2 of the reasons we don’t hear much about mobsters these days are that the press and judiciary are owned by them and if you do get something published, you run the risk of getting snuffed. They probably don’t stop at mere blinding anymore.

    Victor Riesel was an American newspaper journalist and columnist who specialized in news related to labor unions. In 1956 a mobster threw sulfuric acid in his face on a public street in Chicago causing his permanent blindness.


    “Treason is a strong word, but not too strong to characterize the situation in which the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.” This indictment launched a nine-part series of articles entitled “Treason of the Senate.”

    -David Graham Phillips, Cosmopolitan magazine, February 1906

    In 1911 Phillips was shot multiple times by Fitzhugh Coyle Goldsborough, a Harvard-educated scion of a prominent Maryland family ,at Gramercy Park in New York City.

     

    the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.”

    -David Graham Phillips, Cosmopolitan magazine, February 1906

    and to think that was over a hundred years ago

    they’ve only gotten better at it with time

    if you read The Protocols, one thing that I remember was the contemptuous way it referred to the goyim as having the minds and souls of beasts. Lumbering, mindless cattle, chewing their cud in a kind of catatonic stupor.

    what else can we conclude about the kind of people who would vote for Lindsey Graham or John McCain? These guys get reelected again and again.

    The saddest and most tragic thing about The Protocols is that the goyim seem to be as accommodating to the Elders as any farm animal can be. At least a pig might be apprehensive of the trip to the slaughter house. I remember a video where a pig jumped out of a moving truck, and walked off. But the goyim suit up their children and hand them over as cannon fodder, to be slaughtered on behalf of their enemies.

    In the last century, there may have been an excuse for not knowing the nature of the ZUS government, being as ((they)) controlled virtually every source of information.

    But today it’s all out there. Today everybody knows that all of these wars are for Israel, at the direct expense of America’s blood and treasure and (I won’t say good) name.

    And yet, (especially from the Christian churches) the call to suit up the young people to die in more wars- slaughtering innocents – for our enemies, will resound in the nation.

    If I were a British soldier, told to kill some Russian soldier, because Putin is Hitler.. as my daughter languishes in a mental hospital, having been gang raped into a shell of a human being, and my son was brutalized by a British aristocrat, but now I’m called up to kill Russians in a contrived World War, to benefit the pedophile Peerage and their ((patrons)), I don’t know how I’d resist pointing that weapon away from the Russian, and towards England’s true enemies.

    I can't find the comment because the comment archive is down -- I think it was annamaria who reported that the British were holding assets of Russian oligarchs and that Russia wanted the funds back. The speculation was that Teresa May would take possession of the assets.

    As these two articles state, most of the Russian billionaire oligarchs are Jewish

    US Treasury Putin List Features Jewish Billionaires Times of Israel
    https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-treasurys-putin-list-features-jewish-billionaires/

    In pictures: Russia's oligarchs
    Luke Harding (2007) The Guardian
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/jul/02/russia.lukeharding1

    So at least (conspiracy theory) part of the Skripal scheme is for Teresa May to be an angel and return their assets to the Jewish billionaires who stole Russian wealth fair and square.

    If ~ $10bn is the price to be definitely – FOREVER – rid of the Jewish mafia on Russian soil, if I were Russian I’d gladly pay it.

    "So the British would have one believe that Vladimir Putin personally ordered the killing of a former British double agent who had been released from a Kremlin prison in a spy swap and who was no longer capable of doing any damage to Russia. He did that in spite of the fact that he had an election coming up and would be the host of the World Cup in the summer, an event that he would want to go smoothly. So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil. Does that make sense to the reader?"

    Absolutely. Under the Putin regime, the body count of his enemies has grown. He put the "de Thirty-four Russian journalists in the last decade just somehow "died". Occam's Razor applies here.

    Yes, absolutely. Sounds 100% vintage Putin, although I don't consider these impulses "pure evil" except in the eyes of partisans. It's also untrue that he "shot himself in the foot", as the event, if anything, strengthened his image for the election. The world cup has not been cancelled and is at no risk of being cancelled even if some spoiled-sports don't show up.
    I'd also add that Skripal was released by Medvedev, not Putin, that the claim Skripal could no longer do damage to Russia is supposition, and that the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks makes the threat toward bigger fish to fry stronger.
    None of that however proves Putin did it. It's just a possibility. After the dissolution of the USSR, there was enough chaos that private individuals seeking revenge could have gotten hold of military poisons. So this can also be a private act of revenge by someone with access and knowhow. It could also be the work of Ukraine or someone else trying to frame Putin.

    It’s also untrue that he “shot himself in the foot”, as the event, if anything, strengthened his image for the election.

    What strengthened his image was an insane hysterics by the UK and the West in general. The Russians do tend to consolidate when perceive themselves under external threat.

    the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks

    Neither Putin personally nor the Russian government in general have ever shown themselves to be petty. On the contrary, one of the notable qualities of Putin’s is that he believes, as we Russians put it, “the crown would not fall off his head if he bows”. Apparently, he feels strong, so he is not afraid to be magnanimous and make concessions. This quality is much appreciated by some but drives other people crazy.

    None of that however proves Putin did it. It’s just a possibility.

    Theoretically, it’s a possibility that the Martians did it. However, given the behavior of the UK authorities, there is no reason to believe anything even remotely like the picture described happened in reality. There is a scientific impossibility to identify the agent, first, as fast as it was supposedly done, and, second, unless they had a sample and/or detailed information in their possession. It’s scientifically impossible to establish provenance unless the UK had samples of both the agent used and a comparison sample. Multiple comparison samples, I should say, since there are many such compounds. But if they did, the whole premise “only Russia could have done it” goes out of the window.

    Add here the inconsistency of the symptoms and the outcome with the “military grade” nerve agent poisoning – and here you have a complete a story of a very clumsy false flag operation.

    it was the American WASPs who voted for Trump, because he said he’d end the wars, and do other common-sense things. Like end the ZUS government’s overt war on it’s dying WASP population.

    I can hardly think of a group of people more marginalized and disenfranchised than America’s WASPs. And sure, they’re being betrayed by their own, of course, but no more so than the Catholics are being betrayed by the Vatican.

    the cowardice and venality of the goyim leadership is fulsome across the landscape, from Catholic France and Italy and Poland and beyond. And yes, it includes the WASPs of England and the ZUS, but to pretend that all of these evils are emanating out of the WASP power structure, even as WASPs are a dying breed- their nations invaded, and their identity demonized, is beyond ludicrous.

    A great man once wrote that the "big lie" had a force of credulity among the broad masses, as the latter were wont to engage in lying about minor quotidian matters of little or no significance while the big lies were engaged in by the mainstream press, dominated by the usual tribal suspects.

    It was the case with blaming General Ludendorff for Germany's defeat, and it is the same case today, 100 years after the fact.

    The Mockingbird Media lies and equivocates about everything. Insofar as the deep state spider's web of hegemony spreads all over the world and becomes more odious, the lies become more copious and more predictable, and their acceptance relies upon the lever of public credulity and kosher Newspeak.

    What the unconditional and incorrigible Trumpetistas do not realize is that those of us- a very large plurality of of Trump supporters- voted for him because he was not Hillary Clinton and had pledged to keep us out of foreign wars. We will neither support, nor abet, foreign wars for the sake of Israel, whether they are started by Trump or anyone else. Intervention in Syria against the Assad regime is a no go. Trump cannot hope to compare himself to Assad, since the latter has formed a real and effective alliance against the Christian hating head choppers with Russia and Iran. Trump is totally clueless with respect to geopolitics. He is a rank amateur.

    The little lie is more difficult because the veracity thereof may be observed. A large lie or untruth is more difficult to observe. Such as what is visible from outer space is not something anyone can falsify.

    The history of lies and subterfuge is long and has a revered place in Jewish history:

    "But that night the king, being sleepless, ordered the chronicles of the nation to be read to him. Recalling that Mordecai had never been rewarded for his service in revealing the plot of the eunuchs, he asked Haman, the next day, to suggest a suitable reward for one "whom the king desired to honour". Thinking it was himself that the king had in mind, Haman suggested the use of the king's apparel and insignia. These the king ordered to be bestowed on Mordecai.[9]
    Esther denouncing Haman by Ernest Normand.

    Only at the second dinner party, when the king was sufficiently beguiled by her charms, did Esther reveal for the first time her identity as a Jew, and accused Haman of the plot to destroy her and her people. The king ordered that Haman should be hanged on the gallows prepared for Mordecai, and, confiscating his property, bestowed it upon the intended victim.[9] The king then appointed Mordecai as his prime minister, and issued a decree authorizing the Jews to defend themselves.[8]

    What is truly amazing is the complacency of the Roman Catholic Church that still has not excommunicated and anathematized the mass murderer. Blair should be haunted and hunted for his crimes against humanity.

    I appreciate your sentiments Dave, but I'd offer that there isn't anything 'Moslem-loving' about Blair or his stripe.

    The reason Muslims are overrunning many parts of England (and Sweden and Germany and France and elsewhere) isn't because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly. Rather the motivations for the massive migrations (of Muslims and Africans and S. Americans and everybody else they can get) into all Western nations are motivated by a pure, incomprehensibly Satanic hatred for the people of the West.

    They'd use Martians if that was all that was available in order to see England destroyed, and sent reeling into a nightmare, Orwellian dystopia.

    Orwell didn't conjure the 'inner party' out of thin air. He saw it up close and personal, during the nascent Soviet-imposed genocide and slavery that England and the ZUS doomed the people of Eastern Europe to suffer under.

    All the psychotic manifestations of Ingsog were all glaringly visible to George, during the wars, and especially following the "liberation" of Germany.

    What Solomon Morel did to his many victims, he didn't do out of revenge. They were innocent, often just children. He did what he did out of an expression of his pathologies; a need, an imperative to feel the pleasure it gave him to wield absolute power over others. As an end in itself. To not just make them suffer, but to make them know who was making them suffer. And then, compound their suffering.

    If Solomon were an aberration, and was prosecuted for what everyone knew he did, then that would imply a proscription upon his brand of ethnic sadism and cruelty. But he wasn't prosecuted, rather he was allowed sanctuary and coddled.

    This is telling. It isn't out of love for Muslims that they're demanding the West open its gates. Rather it's out of raw hatred. A kind of all-consuming hatred that I know (thankfully) I'll never comprehend.

    the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.”

    -David Graham Phillips, Cosmopolitan magazine, February 1906
     
    and to think that was over a hundred years ago

    they've only gotten better at it with time

    if you read The Protocols, one thing that I remember was the contemptuous way it referred to the goyim as having the minds and souls of beasts. Lumbering, mindless cattle, chewing their cud in a kind of catatonic stupor.

    what else can we conclude about the kind of people who would vote for Lindsey Graham or John McCain? These guys get reelected again and again.

    The saddest and most tragic thing about The Protocols is that the goyim seem to be as accommodating to the Elders as any farm animal can be. At least a pig might be apprehensive of the trip to the slaughter house. I remember a video where a pig jumped out of a moving truck, and walked off. But the goyim suit up their children and hand them over as cannon fodder, to be slaughtered on behalf of their enemies.

    In the last century, there may have been an excuse for not knowing the nature of the ZUS government, being as ((they)) controlled virtually every source of information.

    But today it's all out there. Today everybody knows that all of these wars are for Israel, at the direct expense of America's blood and treasure and (I won't say good) name.

    And yet, (especially from the Christian churches) the call to suit up the young people to die in more wars- slaughtering innocents - for our enemies, will resound in the nation.

    If I were a British soldier, told to kill some Russian soldier, because Putin is Hitler.. as my daughter languishes in a mental hospital, having been gang raped into a shell of a human being, and my son was brutalized by a British aristocrat, but now I'm called up to kill Russians in a contrived World War, to benefit the pedophile Peerage and their ((patrons)), I don't know how I'd resist pointing that weapon away from the Russian, and towards England's true enemies.

    You and me both, friend.

And that Russia and China and Pakistan and Turkey and others will all consider any further aggressions against sovereign nations as an act of war by Israel (regardless of it’s stooges the ZUSA, France, England, etc…) and that all of these wars are obviously being waged by Israel, (using the ZUS and others as proxies) against the collective nations and common decency of the rest of the world.

    what, one wonders, is to be done with people like me?

    do I have too much power? Am I (and others like me) foisting all the wars and globalism and all the rest?

    The fundamental, TL;DR, take-home points:

    1. If a Jew has his and his people’s interests at heart, he’s fine with the status quo.
    2. If an Anglo-Saxon has his and his people’s interests at heart, he opposes the status quo.

    Put another way, the status quo serves Jewish interests, and opposes Anglo-Saxon interests.

    In other words, from an ethnopatriot’s POV, inside every Anglo-Saxon, there’s an ethnonationalist trying to get out. Jews, on the other hand, have to be talked out of their ethnonationalism, to the extent that they step down from the Jewish Supremacy, to some form of reciprocal, universal ethnonationalism. Good luck with that, I say to anyone who’s trying.

    As you say; the Anglo-Saxons are being sold down the river. Jews are not (that comes later, when the backlash starts, for the umpteenth time, and Jews are shocked, SHOCKED, for the umpteenth time).

    The whole “Anglo-Zionist” thing is a thing because flatheads are pussies who can’t just name the Jew.

  102. An old rhyme, “Liar, liar, house on fire.”

    Anyone here recall the attempt to impeach ZUS President Clinton for lying under oath.

    One of his lesser known “sins” was Clinton’s refusal to meet before with Netanyahu in the White House. (I think it was Netanyahu & not Ariel Sharon)

    Recall also that Clinton was under fire for stupidly having denied indulging sex with Jewish intern, Monica Lewinsky?

    In order to reduce pressure on his preZidency, Clinton ordered a bombing of what turned out to be an Islamic nation’s aspirin factory.

    Fast forward today: ZUS President Trump hunted by Mueller and FBI busted his lawyer Cohen’s office to get hard copy information on the Stormy Daniels pay off.

    Please realize the fact that I consider PreZident Trump as an extraordinary and willing puppet for Jewish Neoconservatives.

    So given comparison to PreZident Clinton’s slick method to escape Zio power, the question for me becomes:
    Is the Stormy scandal conveniently intensifying now so that Trump quickly EXPEDITES his Zio-assigned work of bombing either or both Syria and Iran? Secretary Mattis is mad, but is he presently in the dog-White House quarters ’cause he’s too “risk averse”?

    Clinton's serious crimes weren't investigated by "The Bulldog". Instead he was given an out by being charged with lying about sex with an intern. Clinton could have been tried on charges of serious crimes including accessory to murder if not for the creativity of his "accusers" in government who saw to it that all he was ever accused of doing was cheating on his wife and trying to cover that up.

    Yes, absolutely. Sounds 100% vintage Putin
     
    To you, perhaps.

    In reality, it's almost inconceivable that Putin, who is on record as saying not that traitors like Skripal will be killed but that their own treasonous nature will cause them to suffer and die (hardly an unusual view for any patriot), would concoct or allow such an absurdly involved and gratuitously costly (in diplomatic and economic terms) method of trying to send some sort of message.

    Frankly I can't see any reason not to accept George Galloway's opinion in the video posted in #38 above of anyone who so desperately twists reality into a form that allows them to believe the British government's case against the Russian government.

    It’s also untrue that he “shot himself in the foot”, as the event, if anything, strengthened his image for the election.
     
    The election that he was so certain to win he didn't even bother to campaign, according to the NYT? Sure, it makes absolute sense that it would be simpler to conduct a hugely emotive "wmd" attack on British territory, in a manner calculated to have the maximum diplomatic and economic costs to Russia, rather than give a couple more speeches.

    Though of course it was not the attack but the British government's, and the rest of the US sphere's, response that arguably gave him an electoral boost. How stupid does that make them?

    I’d also add that Skripal was released by Medvedev, not Putin
     
    And of course Putin would have had no input into such decisions. After all Putin was PM at the time and Medvedev rightly seen as merely a placeholder in the Presidency to allow Putin to get around term limits.

    that the claim Skripal could no longer do damage to Russia is supposition
     
    But far less speculative than the rather far-fetched supposition that he was somehow still in a position to do Russia harm, after serving four years in prison in Russia, and being exchanged, then living in Britain for 7 years under his own name and with his address in the public domain, and with no protection.

    , and that the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks makes the threat toward bigger fish to fry stronger.
     
    If the Russians want to warn their expats, a few bullets in the backs of heads would do so far more convincingly and at far less cost than this pantomime.

    But by all means keep making excuses for this literal nonsense. By the way, how did the fact that they apparently miraculously survived an attack with a poison "8-10 times more deadly than VX" fit into the "message", despite not getting any treatment whatsoever for several hours?

    So, like the rest of us you haven’t a clue but for some reason beed to babble on feverishly as though you know something and feel it important to show your confidence in what you have no right to feel confident about.

    What strengthened his image was an insane hysterics by the UK and the West in general. The Russians do tend to consolidate when perceive themselves under external threat.

    the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks
     
    Neither Putin personally nor the Russian government in general have ever shown themselves to be petty. On the contrary, one of the notable qualities of Putin's is that he believes, as we Russians put it, "the crown would not fall off his head if he bows". Apparently, he feels strong, so he is not afraid to be magnanimous and make concessions. This quality is much appreciated by some but drives other people crazy.

    None of that however proves Putin did it. It’s just a possibility.
     
    Theoretically, it's a possibility that the Martians did it. However, given the behavior of the UK authorities, there is no reason to believe anything even remotely like the picture described happened in reality. There is a scientific impossibility to identify the agent, first, as fast as it was supposedly done, and, second, unless they had a sample and/or detailed information in their possession. It's scientifically impossible to establish provenance unless the UK had samples of both the agent used and a comparison sample. Multiple comparison samples, I should say, since there are many such compounds. But if they did, the whole premise "only Russia could have done it" goes out of the window.

    Add here the inconsistency of the symptoms and the outcome with the "military grade" nerve agent poisoning - and here you have a complete a story of a very clumsy false flag operation.

    You are just babbling your amateur speculations without it even being properly responsive to Zogby’s measured and limited case.

    It’s the oldest trick in the book, dating back to Roman times;
    creating the enemies you need.

    In 70 BC, an ambitious minor politician and extremely wealthy man, Marcus Licinius Crassus, wanted to rule Rome. Just to give you an idea of what sort of man Crassus really was, he is credited with invention of the fire brigade. But in Crassus’ version, his fire-fighting slaves would race to the scene of a burning building whereupon Crassus would offer to buy it on the spot for a tiny fraction of its worth. If the owner sold, Crassus’ slaves would put out the fire. If the owner refused to sell, Crassus allowed the building to burn to the ground. By means of this device, Crassus eventually came to be the largest single private land holder in Rome, and used some of his wealth to help back Julius Caesar against Cicero.

    On the British Establishment:
    The Skripal affair is better understood in the context of "sir" Savile' knighthood -- when the influential pedophile had been raping and molesting kids for 40 years and none stood up to the criminal. The BBC has dutifully refused to publish anything that would upset "sir" Savile. The Scotland Yard looked the other way -- precisely as the Establishment ordered them to do.
    Savile' specialty were orphans. He was the embodiment of British Establishment.

    The British Establishment has done with the concepts of honor. The loudest lying voices against Russia belong either to the whoring "aristocrats," who found that war profiteering (by any means) pays well, or the opportunistic parvenu like Gavin Williamson representing the vulgarity and intellectual inadequacy of the Establishment.

    I hope someone doesn’t report you to Moscow where it is most likely that your solecisms revealing ignorance of the UK would be well recognised. (At lesst you seem to do it all yourself toute seule so I fon’t suppose you will disappear like the Rehmat team).

    “Sir – let slone ‘sir’ – Savile”! Really! Worthy of the Turkish cleaner.

    Perhaps you have in mind a different Savile.

    The "sir" Savile -- a vicious heartless pedophile and friend to many influential Brits -- was indeed the Establishment: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Savile
    Here are the facts:
    "Savile was made a life member of the British Gypsy Council in 1975, becoming the first "outsider" to be made a member. ...
    Savile became a friend of Margaret Thatcher... He reportedly spent eleven consecutive New Year's Eves at Chequers with Thatcher and her family… Letters released in December 2012 by the National Archives under the thirty-year rule confirm the close friendship between Savile and Thatcher.
    In 1984, he was accepted as a member of the Athenaeum, a gentlemen's club in London's Pall Mall, after being proposed by Cardinal Basil Hume.
    Savile met Prince Charles through mutual charity interests, and Charles reportedly sent him gifts on his 80th birthday and a note reading: "Nobody will ever know what you have done for this country, Jimmy. This is to go some way in thanking you for that."
    In the 1972 New Year Honours, Savile was appointed Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, entitled to append "OBE" to his signature.
    In the 1990 Queen's Birthday Honours he was made a Knight Bachelor "for charitable services", entitled to use the honorific prefix "Sir". Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher had made four attempts to have him knighted before succeeding in her final year in office.
    Savile was honoured with a Papal knighthood by being made a Knight Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of Saint Gregory the Great (KCSG) by Pope John Paul II in 1990.
    -- There were more awards and prestigious memberships.

    It was widely known that Savile was a vicious pedophile. Similar to Blair, Savile had been protected by his powerful friends.

    "Immediately after Savile's death, the BBC's Newsnight programme began an investigation into reports that he was a sexual abuser. ... Newsnight also discovered that Surrey Police had investigated allegations of abuse against Savile. ... There was no public mention of the Newsnight investigation into Savile at the time ... there had been a cover-up by the BBC. ...
    By 19 October 2012, police were pursuing 400 lines of inquiry based on testimony from 200 witnesses via 14 police forces across the UK."

    "It is now known that Jimmy Savile sexually abused hundreds of children and women at the height of his fame. Investigators believe the late Top of the Pops host preyed on around 500 vulnerable victims as young as two years old at institutions including the BBC's broadcasting studios, 14 hospitals and 20 children's hospitals across England." https://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/jun/26/jimmy-savile-sexual-abuse-timeline

    I appreciate your sentiments Dave, but I’d offer that there isn’t anything ‘Moslem-loving’ about Blair or his stripe.

    The reason Muslims are overrunning many parts of England (and Sweden and Germany and France and elsewhere) isn’t because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly.

    It does look rather like those Syrian chemical weapon attacks that happen whenever the rebels are about to be defeated.

    I am pretty sure that it was not ordered within the British government and that most of the British government don't know where it came from, but are willing to believe it was Russia.

    While the CIA does have plenty of form on assassinations, the risk if they were found to be assassinating in Britain seems quite high due to the close CIA links with the UK intelligence sector. But CIA agents could have paid someone else to do it.

    Mossad is the one group that can act freely in the UK, has a record of assassinating scientists, engineers etc here, and unlike CIA, can take the risk of being caught. So it's a possibility - OTOH Israel has shown a lot less anti-Russian hatred than the US Deep State has.

    Normally I'd assume it was indeed Russia - I thought there was plenty of evidence the Polonium poisoning was Russia - and it still seems possible, but US or Mossad must be at least equally likely in this case. It's just possible it could have been British initiated but I doubt it.

    I do think it's most likely the person who actually poisoned them was not an employee of any agency.

    Is Simon in London trying to be objective and reasonable or is he just rather cleverly sowing doubt and disinformation? I smell a limited hangout rat here from reasonable Simon.

    Realistically there is hardly any chance that it was “Russia did it” when it had absolutely nothing to gain. Even if it had why go about it in this highly farcical and incompetent manner? It makes zero sense and the whole thing is screaming false flag from the roof tops, as was the similarly theatrical Litvinenko affair.

    In both instances there is no reason whatsoever to give the benefit of any doubt to western countries or their “security services” and this includes all of their chums in the middle east.

    So, like the rest of us you haven't a clue but for some reason beed to babble on feverishly as though you know something and feel it important to show your confidence in what you have no right to feel confident about.

    No, there’s no equivalence here between making obviously silly assertions to try to support a failed narrative, and pointing out the obvious flaws in those obviously silly assertions.

    If there were, even an “anon” like you might have bothered to actually try to argue the case, rather than just insisting, in effect, “nobody knows anything so nobody can say anything”.

    I have briefly pointed to, argued for, the non negligible possibilities which give the lie to the overconfident assertions of Colonel Blimps and other blow hards. Surprisingly it has been necessary to point out to a sane enough commenter that the (asserted) fact that Putin could have ensured death from a heart attack with no possibility of certain detection doesn't negate the possibility (whatever low probability one assigns in almost total ignorance) that he didn't want it to be undetectable. As it is, what lessons do you think potential spies and defectors might draw - even without knowing who was responsible in this case?

    https://www.theguardian.com/news/2018/mar/16/vladimir-putin-russia-politics-of-eternity-timothy-snyder

    The collapse of the politics of inevitability ushers in another experience of time: the politics of eternity. Whereas inevitability promises a better future for everyone, eternity places one nation at the centre of a cyclical story of victimhood. Time is no longer a line into the future, but a circle that endlessly returns the same threats from the past. Within inevitability, no one is responsible because we all know that the details will sort themselves out for the better; within eternity, no one is responsible because we all know that the enemy is coming no matter what we do. Eternity politicians spread the conviction that government cannot aid society as a whole, but can only guard against threats. Progress gives way to doom.

    In power, eternity politicians manufacture crisis and manipulate the resultant emotion. To distract from their inability or unwillingness to reform, they instruct their citizens to experience elation and outrage at short intervals, drowning the future in the present. In foreign policy, eternity politicians belittle and undo the achievements of countries that might seem like models to their own citizens. Using technology to transmit political fiction at home and abroad, eternity politicians deny truth and seek to reduce life to spectacle and feeling.

    Inevitability and eternity translate facts into narratives. Those swayed by inevitability see every fact as a blip that does not alter the overall story of progress; those who shift to eternity classify every new event as just one more instance of a timeless threat. Each masquerades as history; each does away with history. Inevitability politicians teach that the specifics of the past are irrelevant, since anything that happens is just grist for the mill of progress. Eternity politicians leap from one moment to another, over decades or centuries, to build a myth of innocence and danger. They imagine cycles of threat in the past, creating an imagined pattern that they realise in the present by producing artificial crises and daily drama.

    Putin is getting the West to cut itself off from Russia, which has the added bonus of reversing capital flight, but the real objective is a long term alienation that will continue after he is gone. They will always be a Russia, because the West is going to be like a bear with a sore head after endless flouts and affronts from Putin’s troll state.

    I’m (putatively anyways) a ‘WASP’

    what, one wonders, is to be done with people like me?

    do I have too much power? Am I (and others like me) foisting all the wars and globalism and all the rest?
     
    The fundamental, TL;DR, take-home points:

    1. If a Jew has his and his people's interests at heart, he's fine with the status quo.
    2. If an Anglo-Saxon has his and his people's interests at heart, he opposes the status quo.

    Put another way, the status quo serves Jewish interests, and opposes Anglo-Saxon interests.

    In other words, from an ethnopatriot's POV, inside every Anglo-Saxon, there's an ethnonationalist trying to get out. Jews, on the other hand, have to be talked out of their ethnonationalism, to the extent that they step down from the Jewish Supremacy, to some form of reciprocal, universal ethnonationalism. Good luck with that, I say to anyone who's trying.

    As you say; the Anglo-Saxons are being sold down the river. Jews are not (that comes later, when the backlash starts, for the umpteenth time, and Jews are shocked, SHOCKED, for the umpteenth time).

    The whole "Anglo-Zionist" thing is a thing because flatheads are pussies who can't just name the Jew.

    "So the British would have one believe that Vladimir Putin personally ordered the killing of a former British double agent who had been released from a Kremlin prison in a spy swap and who was no longer capable of doing any damage to Russia. He did that in spite of the fact that he had an election coming up and would be the host of the World Cup in the summer, an event that he would want to go smoothly. So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil. Does that make sense to the reader?"

    Absolutely. Under the Putin regime, the body count of his enemies has grown. He put the "de Thirty-four Russian journalists in the last decade just somehow "died". Occam's Razor applies here.

    The intent of my post was to show that the MSM here is conformist and doesn't like to stray far from what the USG is claiming and what other journalists are writing. Rather than explore the topics you raise, as worthy of exploration as they might be, I thought I'd offer what newspapers around the USA were saying about Saddam's WMD after Powell's UNSC speech; seems a bit more germane.


    The Powell evidence will be persuasive to anyone who is still persuadable.

    The Wall Street Journal


    Piling fact upon fact, photo upon photo Wednesday, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell methodically demonstrated why Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein remains dangerous to his own people, Iraq’s neighbors…

    The Los Angeles Times


    On Wednesday, America's most reluctant warrior, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, presented succinct and damning evidence of Saddam's enormous threat to world peace.

    Arizona Republic



    Saddam Hussein's illicit arsenal of biological and chemical weapons, as well as the equally illicit means that he possesses to deliver them, poses a tangible and urgent danger to U.S. and world security. Millions of innocent lives are at risk.


    Dallas Morning News



    At some point, the world chooses to believe President George W. Bush and Secretary Powell or the international community chooses to side with Saddam Hussein and those who broadcast his lies to the world. …Powell has painstakingly presented a strong case against Iraq.

    Greenville News/South Carolina



    Iraq is busted. U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell laid out the case clearly. No one hearing Powell's presentation to the United Nations Security Council could doubt Iraq's actions and intentions.

    Jacksonville Times-Union/Florida



    The threat is real and at our door. Sept. 11, 2001, stripped away the belief that the United States can peacefully coexist with evil. Prove it, they said. Powell has.

    Charleston Daily Mail/West Virginia


    We are a country always loath to fight unless provoked. The reluctance of Americans to initiate a war needlessly does the nation credit. But this is not a needless war, nor is it unprovoked. Powell laid out the need, and explained the provocation, in step-by-step fashion that cannot be refuted without resorting to fantasy.

    Chicago Sun-Times



    The Dispatch repeatedly has called on the Bush administration to make a compelling case that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is developing weapons of mass destruction and hiding these efforts from U.N. inspectors. Yesterday, Secretary of State Colin Powell made that case before the Security Council.

    Columbus Dispatch



    Powell has methodically proved Iraq's failure to comply with U.N. mandates. With each passing day, Iraq's own choices move it closer to a war that full compliance would prevent.

    Indianapolis Star



    Secretary of State Colin Powell's 90-minute presentation to the U.N. Security Council, buttressed with surveillance photographs and recorded phone conversations, should remove all doubt that Iraq's Saddam Hussein has developed and hides weapons of mass destruction, in violation of U.N. resolutions.

    Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel


    Powell's speech to the U.N. Security Council presented not just one ‘smoking gun’ but a battery of them, more than sufficient to dispel any lingering doubt about the threat the Iraqi dictator poses.

    Denver Post


    The United States has made a compelling case that Iraq has failed to rid itself of weapons of mass destruction. This failure violates the U.N. Security Council resolution of late last year which ordered Iraq to disarm. As a consequence and it is a grave one, the Security Council must act now to disarm Iraq by force.


    Salt Lake City Tribune


    Powell has connected enough dots to tie Iraq to al-Qaeda and show that this alliance is a threat to all of Europe as well as the United States.

    Manchester Union Leader


    In fact, the speech provided proof that Saddam continues to refuse to obey U.N. resolutions. Any amount of time he has now to comply fully and openly with U.N. demands should be measured in days or a few weeks - and no longer.


    Portland Press-Herald/Maine

    The intent of my post was to show that the MSM here is conformist and doesn’t like to stray far from what the USG is claiming and what other journalists are writing.

    Your comment is well taken but I’d like to point out a couple of ways to hone your mostly correct impressions of the press. 1.) Please don’t call the corporate propaganda “MSM” because that’s a subtle way of legitimizing it. It is not mainstream in that it works against the interests of most Americans. 2.) That media is little more than a tool of the interests, and most “journalists” are parrots and propagandists. It’s obvious that bulk of their info is obtained from the government which itself is a tool of the big money crowd.

    I think that your comment would read more correctly this way.:

    The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than it allegedly was in Germany in the late 1930s.

    “… this entire myth, so prevalent then and even now about Hitler, and about the Japanese, is a tissue of fallacies from beginning to end. Every plank in this nightmare evidence is either completely untrue or not entirely the truth.
    If people should learn this intellectual fraud about Hitler’s Germany, then they will begin to ask questions, and searching questions…”

    Mr. Rothbard was an American Jew and an historian of the very highest caliber.

Would he go back to that same audience and tell them we need to intervene in a country that’s been wracked by warfare for years, with no real hope of a peaceful settlement? Of course not.

    On the British Establishment:
    The Skripal affair is better understood in the context of "sir" Savile' knighthood -- when the influential pedophile had been raping and molesting kids for 40 years and none stood up to the criminal. The BBC has dutifully refused to publish anything that would upset "sir" Savile. The Scotland Yard looked the other way -- precisely as the Establishment ordered them to do.
    Savile' specialty were orphans. He was the embodiment of British Establishment.

    The British Establishment has done with the concepts of honor. The loudest lying voices against Russia belong either to the whoring "aristocrats," who found that war profiteering (by any means) pays well, or the opportunistic parvenu like Gavin Williamson representing the vulgarity and intellectual inadequacy of the Establishment.

    Theresa May as more evil than Bill Clinton? That will sound odd to some, but I think it is true. Hillary is the pure evil half of the Clinton marriage. Bill is simply charming and filled with a desire to amass enough power to have a group adore him as he finds new panties to explore.

    May is English, and she has the very long line of Brit Empire secret service evil at her disposal. And her move is a bold one. What it means is that she is signaling that at least if she is PM, the UK could replace the US as Fearless Leader of the actual New World Order, which is the WASP Empire with Israel and worldwide Jewry as Junior Partner #1 and Saudi Arabia elevated to Junior Partner #2 in an insane attempt to make Israel secure forever.

    The English have never been happy that the lowly Americans leaped them as A-#1 of the WASP Empire, and being English they have no permanent alliances, no permanent allies, not even kin (perhaps especially kin - which type and degree of ruthlessness impresses all Semites).

    This alliance was sealed by none other than the very epitome of WASP culture: Mr. Archetypal WASP himself, Oliver Cromwell. The Anglo-Saxon alliance with Jews precisely to wage wars against non-WASP white Christians was the logical (and inevitable if WASP culture were to acquire large scale political power) .

    By the Victorian era, virtually all Elite Brit WASPs were knowing philoSemites. The new twist was that a growing number of them were becoming obsessed with Arabs and/or Islam. decades before the Balfour Declaration, the Brit WASP Elites were wrangling among themselves over how best to use the largest and wealthiest Empire in world history to express its philoSemtism.

    The solution recently agreed upon was to elevate the Saudis. The assumption is that as the Saudis control the actual land of Mohammed, if they are elevated to suzerainty over not merely all Arabs but the entire Islamic Middle East, then the entire Islamic world can be controlled, including to allow Israel to exist in 'peace.'

    And that means all that oil is under the indirect, but very firm, control of the WASP Empire, or as The Saker calls it: the Anglo-Zionist Empire.

    Of course, the Saudi royal family is the most amorally vicious power party in the Middle East. They would slaughter half the Sunni Arabs in order to become unrivaled suzerain over the entire Islamic world. Such monstrousness makes the House of Saud exactly the type partner that those who control the WASP Empire want as partners.

    The Russians are in the way of that beautiful plan of world domination. Russians have common sense and, much worse, they express it, even publicly. Russians know that Sunni Islam is a much worse threat to the world than is Shiite Islam. The Russians know that the Iranians are much more honorable and moral than are the Saudis. The Russians know that as bad as the Turks are, they are more honorable and trustworthy than the Saudis.

    And the Russians also know that the Anglo-Zionist Empire would be tickled pink to make all non-WASP Elite whites - all in the world - a permanent serf class, treated the way Cromwell treated the Irish, the way the Israelis treat the Palestinians.

    Russians know that Sunni Islam is a much worse threat to the world than is Shiite Islam.

    Perhaps that is because the polytheist world subliminally views the Shiite deviants, with their hyper-veneration of a man, bordering on polytheism, to be closer to their own pagan spiritual faiths. You know, a certain camaraderie which comes between “co-religionists.”

    Even Judaism which claims a strict faith in His Oneness, fails miserably with their pagan “in-his-image” argument of the Almighty One.

    Sunni Islam stands alone in the world, with its crystal clear and unshakeable message of True Monotheism. God is One, Infinite, Unique. In that way it is indeed a threat… a threat to the godlessness and heathenism of the world’s majority.

    We true monotheists are hardly looking for “acceptance” as a “lesser threat” by the hypocritical spiritual ciphers of the world.

    And, much worse threat? Sigh!!

    In a world where white christian-jew psychopaths are running rampant, plundering and mass murdering innocents, it is bizarre to read how True Monotheism is a “worse threat” than some other…

    It is also deceitful to imply that Saudi Arabia and its gulf minions represent Sunni Islam. Their conniving treacherous ruling class are simply puppets of the Anglo-Zionist evil. The only power they have over us majority Sunnis, is their entry visa… for pilgrimage.

    Finally, let it be clear, there is no other “much worse threat to the world” than christian-jew whites. Everybody else need to content themselves with lower positions on the Worst Threat rankings.

    the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.”

    -David Graham Phillips, Cosmopolitan magazine, February 1906
     
    and to think that was over a hundred years ago

    they've only gotten better at it with time

    if you read The Protocols, one thing that I remember was the contemptuous way it referred to the goyim as having the minds and souls of beasts. Lumbering, mindless cattle, chewing their cud in a kind of catatonic stupor.

    what else can we conclude about the kind of people who would vote for Lindsey Graham or John McCain? These guys get reelected again and again.

    The saddest and most tragic thing about The Protocols is that the goyim seem to be as accommodating to the Elders as any farm animal can be. At least a pig might be apprehensive of the trip to the slaughter house. I remember a video where a pig jumped out of a moving truck, and walked off. But the goyim suit up their children and hand them over as cannon fodder, to be slaughtered on behalf of their enemies.

    In the last century, there may have been an excuse for not knowing the nature of the ZUS government, being as ((they)) controlled virtually every source of information.

    But today it's all out there. Today everybody knows that all of these wars are for Israel, at the direct expense of America's blood and treasure and (I won't say good) name.

    And yet, (especially from the Christian churches) the call to suit up the young people to die in more wars- slaughtering innocents - for our enemies, will resound in the nation.

    If I were a British soldier, told to kill some Russian soldier, because Putin is Hitler.. as my daughter languishes in a mental hospital, having been gang raped into a shell of a human being, and my son was brutalized by a British aristocrat, but now I'm called up to kill Russians in a contrived World War, to benefit the pedophile Peerage and their ((patrons)), I don't know how I'd resist pointing that weapon away from the Russian, and towards England's true enemies.

    and to think that was over a hundred years ago

    That, my friend is one reason why I like sharing the old stuff.

    Another reason I share the old stuff is that it shows that we shouldn’t be so smug. In other words, despite our vaunted “greatness,” there is little evidence that we’ve solved or improved anything significant in any substantial way.

    BTW: Did ya catch the name and background of the sicko that shot him? Probably no surprise there, either.(In 1911 Phillips was shot multiple times by Fitzhugh Coyle Goldsborough, a Harvard-educated scion of a prominent Maryland family ,at Gramercy Park in New York City.)

    Compared with the Litvinenko umbrella attack with its tip having been dipped in an Amazonian Indians' style curare variant of Polonium the intelligence level of the MI6 & CIA seems to have hit the ground with the twofold miracle of the dead being raised. Now the miracles are posing a big problem for the demonizers of Russia & President Putin: how to spirit these two living & talking people away, who have returned from the dead, where they were supposed to be so safe and well for all truth-loving investigators. This whole story seems to unfold like a Jesus Christ Superstar sequel with James Bond appetizers having been added. At present the roles have been reversed: the Russians being the champions of free will and the Western intelligence services being the Joker.

    how to spirit these two living & talking people away, who have returned from the dead,

    Rather doubt that Sergei and Yulia Skripal are still living and talking (as the UK government insists). If they were still alive, we would have seen breathless TV interviews, magazine stories about Yulia torn between East and West, perhaps by now even a romantic angle.

    Civilian medical researchers would line up to ask for blood and tissue samples, do batteries of medical tests etc. and and would rush out scientific papers about the mechanism and effects of the alleged poisoning.

    Instead, we hear of a bizarre alleged phone call between Yulia Skripal’s cousin and her cousin Viktoria Skripal which Viktoria noted seemed “scripted” and was terminated abruptly.

    Most likely, both Sergei and Yulia were MURDERED by British intelligence services around the time of the “incident.” Ironically, the strongest evidence for this theory lies in the fact that the UK continues to claim, without public verification, that both are still alive.

    BTW while we hear endless repetitions of the cool-sounding Russian term “Novichok,” nobody seems keen to tell us WHICH specific compound in the “Novichok” group (known to the West since the 1980s) was allegedly used on Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

    I do not think it is impossible, that the MI6 & CIA are capable of hideous crimes, even of homicide. But up till now I interpret the declaration of the Salisbury hospital and of the head of Porton Down as unexpected and contrary to the MI6 & CIA policies. Also I notice a lack of cleverness all over the handling of this Skripal case by both the UK government and the secret services. This is going to backfire. Happily the new Cold War that these secret services wish to renew between East and West is not so easy to realize.

    Please convey some useful knowledge. What does "Balfour in 1907 already announced [sic] war against Germany" mean when you switch your brain on to it? Discussion of war involving Germany had been commonplsce for years. NB Erskine Childers "The Riddle of the Sands" was published in 2003.

    I am very fond of the British. They have provided a good deal of what makes the US a healthy and blessed place to live.

    But I will admit that I was disappointed in PM Blair on the Iraq invasion and that of Afghanistan. It seemed so blatantly obvious to me, that I thought there was no way the prime minister would buy in. I was wrong. But then who would have believed that the Tory's would abandon natural relations for same sex relations, muchless marriage.

    It's unclear how to respond when the leadership is so afraid that they advance anything to avoid grappling with hard reality. PM May has the hurdle of guiding Great Britain out of the EU.

    I wonder if all of this is to avoid that.

A hag because she's 90+ though still as well presented as any Hollywood star who starts looking pretty good, doesn't take drugs, and lives a long time? Moreover it is hard to think of anyone else who might beat Mother Theresa for living a long life of duty fulfilled.

    Moslem-loving filth
     
    I appreciate your sentiments Dave, but I'd offer that there isn't anything 'Moslem-loving' about Blair or his stripe.

    The reason Muslims are overrunning many parts of England (and Sweden and Germany and France and elsewhere) isn't because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly. Rather the motivations for the massive migrations (of Muslims and Africans and S. Americans and everybody else they can get) into all Western nations are motivated by a pure, incomprehensibly Satanic hatred for the people of the West.

    They'd use Martians if that was all that was available in order to see England destroyed, and sent reeling into a nightmare, Orwellian dystopia.

    Orwell didn't conjure the 'inner party' out of thin air. He saw it up close and personal, during the nascent Soviet-imposed genocide and slavery that England and the ZUS doomed the people of Eastern Europe to suffer under.

    All the psychotic manifestations of Ingsog were all glaringly visible to George, during the wars, and especially following the "liberation" of Germany.

    What Solomon Morel did to his many victims, he didn't do out of revenge. They were innocent, often just children. He did what he did out of an expression of his pathologies; a need, an imperative to feel the pleasure it gave him to wield absolute power over others. As an end in itself. To not just make them suffer, but to make them know who was making them suffer. And then, compound their suffering.

    If Solomon were an aberration, and was prosecuted for what everyone knew he did, then that would imply a proscription upon his brand of ethnic sadism and cruelty. But he wasn't prosecuted, rather he was allowed sanctuary and coddled.

    This is telling. It isn't out of love for Muslims that they're demanding the West open its gates. Rather it's out of raw hatred. A kind of all-consuming hatred that I know (thankfully) I'll never comprehend.

    I’d like to second that and add that it’s a twofer. By doing that, both Muslims and the rest of us goyim suffer gratuitously to satiate their insatiable barbarity.

    And they not only hate us but seem to loathe each other as well.

    It’s not just American bombs killing Syrian children…let’s not forget the head-choppers that the USA sponsors and has been sponsoring these past seven years…the so-called moderate ‘rebels’…

    What really galls me is how stupid they take us to be…

    Eastern Ghouta has a population of 400,000…over 150,000 civilians have left into the arms of the government as soon as the headchoppers agreed to let them go…and agreed to be evacuated with their headchopper families and light arms…

    The total amount of headchoppers, their families and sympathizers has so far been about 40,000…

    So do the math…40,000 head choppers were holding 360,000 civilians hostage…

    Yet we never here these plain facts hiding in plain view…this is sickening…

    The intent of my post was to show that the MSM here is conformist and doesn’t like to stray far from what the USG is claiming and what other journalists are writing.
     
    Your comment is well taken but I'd like to point out a couple of ways to hone your mostly correct impressions of the press. 1.) Please don't call the corporate propaganda "MSM" because that's a subtle way of legitimizing it. It is not mainstream in that it works against the interests of most Americans. 2.) That media is little more than a tool of the interests, and most "journalists" are parrots and propagandists. It's obvious that bulk of their info is obtained from the government which itself is a tool of the big money crowd.

    I think that your comment would read more correctly this way.:

    The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than it allegedly was in Germany in the late 1930s.

    “… this entire myth, so prevalent then and even now about Hitler, and about the Japanese, is a tissue of fallacies from beginning to end. Every plank in this nightmare evidence is either completely untrue or not entirely the truth.
    If people should learn this intellectual fraud about Hitler's Germany, then they will begin to ask questions, and searching questions…”

    Very good point, Jacques, but I would go further and say that you couldn’t embark on building the colossal empire without a strong and faithful propaganda arm. The prestitute media is as much a requirement of the empire as the weapons and the soldiers.

    Where do we start,
    Why not the beginning ?

    It's the oldest trick in the book, dating back to Roman times;
    creating the enemies you need.


    In 70 BC, an ambitious minor politician and extremely wealthy man, Marcus Licinius Crassus, wanted to rule Rome. Just to give you an idea of what sort of man Crassus really was, he is credited with invention of the fire brigade. But in Crassus' version, his fire-fighting slaves would race to the scene of a burning building whereupon Crassus would offer to buy it on the spot for a tiny fraction of its worth. If the owner sold, Crassus' slaves would put out the fire. If the owner refused to sell, Crassus allowed the building to burn to the ground. By means of this device, Crassus eventually came to be the largest single private land holder in Rome, and used some of his wealth to help back Julius Caesar against Cicero.

    The Ziowest likes to attack on holidays. This “gas” attack happened on the Last day of Passover and on Orthodox Easter Good Friday. Purim attacks – Iraq invasion 1991 ended on Purim, Iraq invasion 2003 started on Purim, Libya bombed on Purim Eve 2011 and Dresden was bombed on
    2/14-15/45 on Purim, Ash Wednesday, and Valentines Day – the Zio-west had a trio of holidays for that holocaust. On Purim 2018, Putin gave his big speech about weapons he has as a warning. He knows how the Ziowest loves Purim for war games.

    The Zios also likes to play with numbers too. The 70th anniversary of the founding of Israel is on 5/14/18. The gas attack this year happened on the 7th day of the 4th month. Haley talked about this happening last year exactly the same time. In 2017, the US bombed Syria on the 7th day of the 4th month . She went on and on about it being exactly a year later like it was big deal for her to do some “work”. MLK had a similar deal with ZUS. He gave his Beyond Vietnam speech on 4/4/67. He said that the US is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world. It still is 51 years later. He was assassinated by the US deep state exactly a year later on 4/4/68. His speech for that day was “America is going to Hell”. I guess the ZUS deep state likes year anniversaries for its terror games. It is odd that the “gas” attack last year happened on 4/4/17. Two fours again.

    Number 11

    The number 11 is a number that often comes up for ZUS terror attacks – 911 and 9/11/73 Chile coup and 11/22/63 – JFK assassination. 11 and two 11s (22).

    The criminals of the Zio-west may plan an attack on Syria on 4/11/18 – another 11.

    33 number

    4/11/18 is exactly 33 days from the 70th anniversary of Israel’s founding. 33 is considered 3 11s in numerology.

    David reigned for 33 years in Jerusalem. (1 Ch 3,4) . The Hebraic tradition distinguishes 32 ways of the Wisdom to which it adds “Ain Soph” or the unknowable one. So 33 again.

    Trump must have purposely put the US embassy in Jerusalem to get ready for this “big” anniversary. In order to “celebrate” the 33 years of David’s rulership of Jerusalem with perhaps an “invasion” of Syria 33 days before the “big” day. Hope it does not happen. But with all the insane chatter coming from the ruling Ziowest crazies at the UN on 4/9/18 it does not give much hope for any humane or rational thinking to come from the Ziowest.

    Other 33s – 233 is Skull and Bones. 33 is the highest level for Masons.

    6 number

    6 points of the Star of David, D-day was on 6/6/44 – 6th day, 6th month, 6th hour. 666. Operation Overlord it was called. 6 million for the Holocaust.

    Number 7

    Israel’s 70th anniversary must be a very “big” deal for Ziowest. The number 7 is another trigger number for them. Here is Christiane Lagarde talking about how great the number seven is on Jan. 2014. 2014 was the start of the intense anti-Russia hysteria we have today, it started that year when the US backed Banderists took over Ukraine on 2/22/14. That is an odd number combination. 11 number again, 22 is considered 2 x 11 by our ruling Zio-numerologists.

    The Zios are definitely playing games with numbers like they have some “magical” powers.

    He did that in spite of the fact that he had an election coming up and would be the host of the World Cup in the summer, an event that he would want to go smoothly. So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil. Does that make sense to the reader? It doesn’t to me.
     
    Well, there is a pattern evident here. We are also supposed to believe that the Assad government carries out gratuitous chemical attacks at precisely the worst possible moments for itself, to no plausible benefit and in fact in direct opposition to its own interests, seemingly out of pure joy in doing evil.

    Those who claim to believe this are - there's no kind way to put this - idiots or liars. Given that this includes almost the entirety of the US political and media elites, where does this leave the US?

    Here's a rare exception to the above, in the US media elite crowd. Tucker Carlson proving to be one of the rare, precious few who "stands athwart the rush to war, yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it":

    That's the question...

    “How stupid is…”

    Maybe were gonna find out. There are reports (don’t know if they are true) a Russian SU-34 carrying Kh-35u or Kh-38 air launch anti ship missiles has been spotted over Tartus. Apparently the Russians are going to make a fight of it, even if substantially out gunned in the region.

    Is Simon in London trying to be objective and reasonable or is he just rather cleverly sowing doubt and disinformation? I smell a limited hangout rat here from reasonable Simon.

    Realistically there is hardly any chance that it was "Russia did it" when it had absolutely nothing to gain. Even if it had why go about it in this highly farcical and incompetent manner? It makes zero sense and the whole thing is screaming false flag from the roof tops, as was the similarly theatrical Litvinenko affair.

    In both instances there is no reason whatsoever to give the benefit of any doubt to western countries or their "security services" and this includes all of their chums in the middle east.

    He's one in a million, that's for sure. I respect him hugely (and that's despite the fact I hate his general politics).

    As for Carlson, I like his overall politics much better and I've seen a few good performances from him, but with this particular one, given the context and timing, he earned Galloway-like status imo, in the sense that he deserves respect from both sides of the partisan political divide.

    It does look rather like those Syrian chemical weapon attacks that happen whenever the rebels are about to be defeated.

    I am pretty sure that it was not ordered within the British government and that most of the British government don't know where it came from, but are willing to believe it was Russia.

    While the CIA does have plenty of form on assassinations, the risk if they were found to be assassinating in Britain seems quite high due to the close CIA links with the UK intelligence sector. But CIA agents could have paid someone else to do it.

    Mossad is the one group that can act freely in the UK, has a record of assassinating scientists, engineers etc here, and unlike CIA, can take the risk of being caught. So it's a possibility - OTOH Israel has shown a lot less anti-Russian hatred than the US Deep State has.

    Normally I'd assume it was indeed Russia - I thought there was plenty of evidence the Polonium poisoning was Russia - and it still seems possible, but US or Mossad must be at least equally likely in this case. It's just possible it could have been British initiated but I doubt it.

    I do think it's most likely the person who actually poisoned them was not an employee of any agency.

    “I do think it’s most likely the person who actually poisoned them was not an employee of any agency.”

    It’s also possible that nobody was poisoned and that nothing happened involving any nerve agent at all. May has shown herself to be the worst kind of liar., and the British press is as rotten as the US press is. I don’t believe any of this bullshit, because none of it makes any sense at all.

    Toward the end, Giraldi stumbles upon the Brits' true motive for cooking up this affair, the upcoming soccer World Cup, but he does not fully explore it.

    The clue is in the history of abysmal failure of the English teams at those World Cups. As the supposed motherland of soccer, the British have lost face, and they simply can't stomach the prospect of another ignominious first-round exit. So, what to do? Simple - create a pretext for "boycotting" the venture while putting the blame squarely on the host.

    You ARE kidding, aren’t you? Starting a world war to keep a few football teams from being embarrassed is a bit of a stretch.

    Saddam's WMD, Gulf of Tonkin, etc., etc. And now a ridiculous false flag attack in Syria. Did it take place at all? But the narrative is all. The press in the USA is more effectively controlled and conformist than in Germany in the late 1930s and nobody goes around beating up journalists or sending them to a KZ. The Syrian Gov't is winning the civil war, things are going well but what Assad really needs is to have the crap bombed out of his military by Uncle Sam. What transparent bullshit.

    It's not clear to me that we have 'been reduced to' this; it seems to me that it has been ever thus. (Obviously nobody was glued to the boob tube prior to the late 1920s... but still).

    1991's "Babies from Incubators" (a Hill & Knowlton/Tom Lantos co-production) is a re-make of "Huns Bayonetting Babies" from WWI; the "questioning is treason" trope has been around since Sparta.

    Also, there have always - always - been people who could see through the bullshit; in WWI in Australia, they were sent white feathers and accused of cowardice, for the supreme crime of having the good sense not to involve themselves in a pissing contest between 3 European cousins.

    The cognitive bifurcation in humanity is, in all likelihood, not 'getting worse' - except relative to a brief period in the late 20th century. It's more likely that it is returning to something approaching its natural level.

    It bounced around during the 20th century - the dummies became a larger proportion of the population when child mortality was dramatically reduced; then there was a wholesale change in the reproductive strategies of the dummies in the 1960s (after which women could surreptitiously control their fertility using contraceptives: they could have sex without procreating)... which reduced the fertility rate of the bottom half of the IQ distribution.

    Now, the cognitive profile of the West seems to be heading back to what it was at the start of the 20th century: the bottom 30% of the IQ distribution are at a higher base level than back then, but they're still not much good for anything except cannon fodder... and we don't do large-scale land wars anymore.

    Oh, and I forgot...

    Was Hitler evil?
     
    Almost certainly not. He was probably very slightly mentally ill (no more than any of us, of course), and he seems to have laboured under the misapprehension that European Jews are a race (rather than a religious and cultural group) which had him asking the wrong questions about important issues for a goodly part of his political career. (Example: he hated Communism for the wrong reason. It should be hated because central planning is a farcical joke... instead he hated it because it was the intellectual output of, and its hierarchy was dominated by, Jews).

    I've been listening to Toland's "Adolf Hitler" (a 44-hour audiobook!!), and at the moment I am up to the point at which Nasty Uncle 'Dolfie issues his ultimatum to the Austrian government (January 1938, for those paying at home) - the prelude to Anschluss.

    Although I'm a militant anarchist, I've been fascinated by Hitler since childhood: it's the fault of the education system for putting forward a cartoon-villain version of the guy (it immediately triggered my bullshit detector). WWI corporal, failed painter, writer of windbaggy manifesto... ends up leading an entire country.

    How did a man who was homeless in the aftermath of WWI, wind up as undisputed head of one of the most educated industrial nations in the world at the time? Force of will only gets you so far, and then you actually have to have something concrete to offer.

    The European practice of assassinating unpopular political figures was kind of a 'thing' - yet Hitler could go about in public with no fear of someone taking a potshot at him: the only assassination attempt on him was during the war, by the German officer caste.

    So there were no Gavrilo Princips in Germany between 1926(ish) and 1939? No Saccos or Vanzettis? Literally nobody who had a personal hatred of Hitler, and nothing to lose? How odd.

    These ridiculous, suicidal gas attacks by Assad seem to coincide not only with battleground victories against the head-choppers, but co-incidentally with Israel’s murderous attacks on unarmed Palestinians “throwing stones”.

    What nobody seems to have picked up is the emphasis – and red lines – on Gas; gas, gas attacks. Why is gas so much worse than being dismembered, disembowelled, and mutilated by high explosives? Certainly I would favour unconsciousness and death by gas before being smashed to pieces by depleted uranium.

    These relentlessly repeated claims are an exercise with the dual purpose of providing a subliminal message about the greatest tragedy in human history, repeated ad nauseam. The massive ‘gassing’ of European Jews some 65 years ago. Lest we forget.

    Not just gas, but its use against children.

    They are pulling at all the hearstrings, but for some reason not enough of us are buying the party line.

    An old rhyme, "Liar, liar, house on fire."

    Anyone here recall the attempt to impeach ZUS President Clinton for lying under oath.

    One of his lesser known "sins" was Clinton's refusal to meet before with Netanyahu in the White House. (I think it was Netanyahu & not Ariel Sharon)

    Recall also that Clinton was under fire for stupidly having denied indulging sex with Jewish intern, Monica Lewinsky?

    In order to reduce pressure on his preZidency, Clinton ordered a bombing of what turned out to be an Islamic nation's aspirin factory.

    Fast forward today: ZUS President Trump hunted by Mueller and FBI busted his lawyer Cohen's office to get hard copy information on the Stormy Daniels pay off.

    Please realize the fact that I consider PreZident Trump as an extraordinary and willing puppet for Jewish Neoconservatives.

    So given comparison to PreZident Clinton's slick method to escape Zio power, the question for me becomes:
    Is the Stormy scandal conveniently intensifying now so that Trump quickly EXPEDITES his Zio-assigned work of bombing either or both Syria and Iran? Secretary Mattis is mad, but is he presently in the dog-White House quarters 'cause he's too "risk averse"?

    Clinton’s serious crimes weren’t investigated by “The Bulldog”. Instead he was given an out by being charged with lying about sex with an intern. Clinton could have been tried on charges of serious crimes including accessory to murder if not for the creativity of his “accusers” in government who saw to it that all he was ever accused of doing was cheating on his wife and trying to cover that up.

    Moslem-loving filth
     
    I appreciate your sentiments Dave, but I'd offer that there isn't anything 'Moslem-loving' about Blair or his stripe.

    The reason Muslims are overrunning many parts of England (and Sweden and Germany and France and elsewhere) isn't because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly. Rather the motivations for the massive migrations (of Muslims and Africans and S. Americans and everybody else they can get) into all Western nations are motivated by a pure, incomprehensibly Satanic hatred for the people of the West.

    They'd use Martians if that was all that was available in order to see England destroyed, and sent reeling into a nightmare, Orwellian dystopia.

    Orwell didn't conjure the 'inner party' out of thin air. He saw it up close and personal, during the nascent Soviet-imposed genocide and slavery that England and the ZUS doomed the people of Eastern Europe to suffer under.

    All the psychotic manifestations of Ingsog were all glaringly visible to George, during the wars, and especially following the "liberation" of Germany.

    What Solomon Morel did to his many victims, he didn't do out of revenge. They were innocent, often just children. He did what he did out of an expression of his pathologies; a need, an imperative to feel the pleasure it gave him to wield absolute power over others. As an end in itself. To not just make them suffer, but to make them know who was making them suffer. And then, compound their suffering.

    If Solomon were an aberration, and was prosecuted for what everyone knew he did, then that would imply a proscription upon his brand of ethnic sadism and cruelty. But he wasn't prosecuted, rather he was allowed sanctuary and coddled.

    This is telling. It isn't out of love for Muslims that they're demanding the West open its gates. Rather it's out of raw hatred. A kind of all-consuming hatred that I know (thankfully) I'll never comprehend.

    I understand your key point perfectly – and you’re right, of course. Their deliberate, considered, ruthless, godless, degenerate evil is the overriding reason why a bullet in the head is simply far too good for these traitorous, nation-wrecking filth.

  156. There’s a subconscious racism in the way liberal westerners treat Russia. Saudis execute gays and transsexuals but the West focuses on Russian “homophobia,” which amounts to little more than discouraging gay pride marches and sexual orientation education to children. China has open censorship of the media and doesn’t even have elections, yet the West imposes sanctions on semi-democratic Russia and trades freely with China. Islamists are taking over in Turkey, yet liberal westerners attack the Russian Orthodox Church for spreading moderately conservative values.

    Basically Russia is bad because it’s a white country that’s relatively conservative and does things a bit differently than other white countries. Non-white countries can do whatever they like because they aren’t white as so can’t be expected to live up to western liberal values.

    Do you have any reference/link for this?

    Don’t know how true it is, but this is what Veterans Today says about the captured spooks and weapons lab:

    Russia also confirms that there are British, American, Israeli and Saudi intelligence officers who were caught by the Syrian army in one of the heavily fortified operations rooms during the invasion of the Syrian army and its allies of the East Ghouta.”

    American, British and Israeli military personnel captured in Syria have confirmed they were ordered to stage chemical attacks in East Ghouta by their governments.

    The Americans are still being held along with Israeli’s while British prisoners are being negotiated for. Sources in Damascus told us that representatives of Oman in Damascus approached the Russian Office of Reconciliation on behalf of Britain for the return of British chemical warfare personnel.

    Thanks for the links...

    Gordon Duff [Vietnam Marine grunt veteran] and Jim Dean of Veterans Today are well meaning fellows and are on the 'right team' so to speak...

    They are often dismissed as Conspiracy Kooks...and they sometimes go a bit over the top...

    I suspect this is because they rely on sources that are perhaps somewhat unreliable...[VT says some of these sources are ex intel guys...so some truth bending might go with the territory...]

    Here is what we do know...last month the Syrian government did say it found a 'rebel' chemical weapons workshop and this was reported in Sputnik and RT...

    Reuters ran a one-sentence 'report' on this...

    What has been documented much more extensively especially in RT and Sputnik are huge conventional weapons caches seized by the SAA as it liberates various locations from terrorists...often these weapons are visibly stamped with manufacturer data plates from US and Nato countries...

    This is beyond doubt...

    So the logical question is how are these holed up bearded fanatics in Ghouta...who are surrounded on all sides...getting this stuff for the last five years...?

    There is a logistics question here...who and how has been smuggling this into the besieged enclave [including possibly chemical weapons]...?

    That is really cloak and dagger stuff no doubt...and actual verifiable info would be very hard to come by...

    So there could be some truth to this idea that various Western spooks or at least contractors are involved in this game of smuggling in everything from guns to chlorine...[which is readily available]...

    However it is doubtful that these personnel would have been caught by the advancing SAA...

    Even if SAA did capture various Nato operators or agents there...it might not be something that the Russian side would publicize...[I'm just guessing as a layman here...Mr. Giraldi would certainly have a much better grasp on the nuts and bolts of such things...]

    So overall I think this is a case where VT is perhaps a bit too optimistic...

    Still...reading Duff and Dean is always helpful...for instance we have this...


    '...We are still waiting for the first verifiable report of a jhadi and or family that has been killed by one of these “attacks”, or a cemetery of the gassed martyrs, or even a headstone for such.

    The amateur script writers forgot about that part...'
     

    That's a very good observation...

    With all these 'gas victims' churned out by the white helmets how is it that no such 'martyr' graves have ever turned up...?

    Or this observation...as to how those chemicals might be used that the headchoppers are cooking up in their workshops...


    '...As for what these could be used for, how about throwing into a cellar filled with human shield pro-Damascus family members to generate a nice pile of bodies for our “un-free” Western media...'
     
    We do know that the Jaish headhcoppers just released a whole bunch of Syrian prisoners that they had been holding in on of their 'jails'...as part of the evacuation deal...many of them women...these freed prisoners have now been evacuated and taken to a sports stadium in Damascus for reunion with family...

    Photo showing the buses with the freed prisoners below...


    https://s20.postimg.org/s9tz0hl8d/Jaish_Prisoners_Evac.jpg


    On March 26...even the French AFP ran this story...


    '...In the largest city of the East Ghouta district, Douma, civilians and military personnel have been liberated from the “jail of repentance,” where they were kept prisoners for years by Jaish al-Islam terrorists...'
     

    There were hundreds of women and children from the city of Adra, which was captured by terrorists in December 2013. Adra is one of the largest industrial cities in the suburbs of Damascus.

    “In such places, extremists tortured the abducted people, forcing them to repent of their sins. Thus, they wanted to realize the doctrine of a peaceful revolution. But what sins do children, who were the greatest number in the prison, have to repent?” the source asked.

    According to the source, there were 3,500 inmates in the prison. The terrorists used them as a human shield to put pressure on the Syrian army, which did everything possible to save the lives of the people of the city...'

    and to think that was over a hundred years ago
     
    That, my friend is one reason why I like sharing the old stuff.

    they’ve only gotten better at it with time
     

    That's another one.

    Another reason I share the old stuff is that it shows that we shouldn't be so smug. In other words, despite our vaunted "greatness," there is little evidence that we've solved or improved anything significant in any substantial way.

    BTW: Did ya catch the name and background of the sicko that shot him? Probably no surprise there, either.(In 1911 Phillips was shot multiple times by Fitzhugh Coyle Goldsborough, a Harvard-educated scion of a prominent Maryland family ,at Gramercy Park in New York City.)

    Another reason I share the old stuff is that it shows that we shouldn’t be so smug.

    you’re absolutely right of course. And it’s enlightening to read the stuff you post, to say the least.

    I don’t always delve deeply into all of them, because I have to journey down the rabbit hole gently, careful not to get too cynical, but please do keep posting your gems, Jacques. You’re doing your part to edify a lot of people, (myself included) into many otherwise cryptic truths.

    All history that is potentially inconvenient to the PTB is always passed over, if not memory-holed altogether. And we need to know where we came from, if we’re ever going to navigate where we’re going.

    Or, more humbly, simply to glimmer what’s going on, and why, for sanity’s sake.

    I'd like to second that and add that it's a twofer. By doing that, both Muslims and the rest of us goyim suffer gratuitously to satiate their insatiable barbarity.

    And they not only hate us but seem to loathe each other as well.

    China again showed that is a petty US COLONY

    [Russia on Tuesday vetoed a US-drafted United Nations Security Council resolution that would have set up an investigation into chemical weapons use in Syria following an alleged toxic gas attack in rebel-held Douma.
    It was the 12th time that Russia has used its veto power at the council to block action targeting its Syrian ally.

    Twelve of the 15 council members backed the measure, including France, Britain, African countries, Kazakhstan and Kuwait. Bolivia voted against the draft resolution, while China abstained.]

    Why petty China always cave in with US. In the latest resolution China AGAIN abstained. China is a petty colony and people must boycott its garbage, that is called goods. Chinese criminal ‘leaders’ still have their slave mentality. They are nothing but petty slaves in the service of the mass murderers.
    They also voted for illegal sanctions against Iran, N. Korea and any other country that American criminals and mass murderers wanted to kill their children. Chinese petty ‘leaders’ are as criminals as US mass murderers. Down with petty colonies and cowards chinese ‘leaders’.

    Moslem-loving filth
     
    I appreciate your sentiments Dave, but I'd offer that there isn't anything 'Moslem-loving' about Blair or his stripe.

    The reason Muslims are overrunning many parts of England (and Sweden and Germany and France and elsewhere) isn't because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly. Rather the motivations for the massive migrations (of Muslims and Africans and S. Americans and everybody else they can get) into all Western nations are motivated by a pure, incomprehensibly Satanic hatred for the people of the West.

    They'd use Martians if that was all that was available in order to see England destroyed, and sent reeling into a nightmare, Orwellian dystopia.

    Orwell didn't conjure the 'inner party' out of thin air. He saw it up close and personal, during the nascent Soviet-imposed genocide and slavery that England and the ZUS doomed the people of Eastern Europe to suffer under.

    All the psychotic manifestations of Ingsog were all glaringly visible to George, during the wars, and especially following the "liberation" of Germany.

    What Solomon Morel did to his many victims, he didn't do out of revenge. They were innocent, often just children. He did what he did out of an expression of his pathologies; a need, an imperative to feel the pleasure it gave him to wield absolute power over others. As an end in itself. To not just make them suffer, but to make them know who was making them suffer. And then, compound their suffering.

    If Solomon were an aberration, and was prosecuted for what everyone knew he did, then that would imply a proscription upon his brand of ethnic sadism and cruelty. But he wasn't prosecuted, rather he was allowed sanctuary and coddled.

    This is telling. It isn't out of love for Muslims that they're demanding the West open its gates. Rather it's out of raw hatred. A kind of all-consuming hatred that I know (thankfully) I'll never comprehend.

    Those swine never gave a damn about the working class; their concerns were used merely as pretexts by the ruling classes to consolidate more wealth and power into their own hands.

    I could not at that time know, as I did later, how men of wealth use the communist movement to bend workers to their will. So I quite willingly adopted the clichés about secrecy being necessary because of the brutality and savagery of the working-class enemies. I soon learned that the members exposed to the public were not the important Communists. [ Most of whom were Red millionaires as a matter of fact.]

    I challenge anyone to name a modern war prosecuted by the US government and its allies that did not involve at its root the direct fabrication of blatant lies on enormous levels, both as a casus belli and also to manipulate public opinion in favor of hostilities.

    The clandestine activity represented by these *provocations* isn't even good spycraft. The Skripal case and the latest use of chlorine gas in Syria are risible, clumsy, amateur attempts to wangle the empire into war that the callowest rube could see through. And yet, it's working its magic on the media. The politicians, suborned by the war machine, give unanimous bipartisan assent.

    What the hell is going on?

    What is going on you say? the Jewish lobby AKA Israel lobby is going on.

    Sadam’s Iraq, Gaddafi’s Libya, Mubarak’s Egypt, Rouhani’s and Khamenei’s Iran and Assad’s Syria: three first are gone through either direct military “humanitarian” interventions or CIA instigated “color” revolutions. The last two are on the verge of another “humanitarian” military intervention instigated by the Jewish lobby, because all five have been and last two still are historical Israel’s foes.

    Rouhani’s and Khamenei’s Iran:

    Saddam’s Iraq:

    Since coming to power, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had been a leader of the rejectionist Arab states and one of the most belligerent foes of Israel

    http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-gulf-war

    This has the Lobby’s fingerprints all over. It’s a bit shocking that seemingly smart and sensible people such as yourself are still wondering and asking the internet “What is going on?”

    Harvard’s JFK School of Government professor of International Affairs Stephen Walt and Chicago University professor of Political Sciences John Mearsheimer explain clearly in their 2006 paper what the Jewish lobby is and what exactly is its modus operandi to steer US foreign policy in Israel’s favour.

    The following link brings to a comment of mine explaining what the Lobby is and how effectively operates to steer US foreign policy through four excerpts from their well researched 2006 paper The Israel Lobby

    http://www.unz.com/article/what-the-alt-right-and-regressive-left-have-in-common/#comment-2276493

    The Israeli government and pro-Israel groups in the United States have worked together to shape the administration’s policy towards Iraq, Syria and Iran, as well as its grand scheme for reordering the Middle East.

    Pressure from Israel and the Lobby was not the only factor behind the decision to attack Iraq in March 2003, but it was critical. Some Americans believe that this was a war for oil, but there is hardly any direct evidence to support this claim. Instead, the war was motivated in good part by a desire to make Israel more secure. According to Philip Zelikow, a former member of the president’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, and now a counsellor to Condoleezza Rice, the ‘real threat’ from Iraq was not a threat to the United States. The ‘unstated threat’ was the ‘threat against Israel’, Zelikow told an audience at the University of Virginia in September 2002. ‘The American government,’ he added, ‘doesn’t want to lean too hard on it rhetorically, because it is not a popular sell.’

    Red Crescent Says No Evidence of Chemical Attack in Syria’s Douma

    Patients treated by aid group not exposed to any chemical agents
    Jason Ditz Posted on April 9, 2018

    The Syrian Red Crescent issued a statement Monday dismissing the allegations of a weekend chemical weapon attack in the city of Douma. The statement insisted their medical personnel in the city had found no evidence any such attack took place.

    https://news.antiwar.com/2018/04/09/red-crescent-says-no-evidence-of-chemical-attack-in-syrias-douma/

    You might think it would be easier if not more foolproof for the warmongers to stage a fake chemical attack in Syria by 2018 than it was staging the false flag attack on the WTC in 2001, but even this simple but bogus narrative crumbles under perfunctory inspection, and the lies stick out like a pitchfork in a goat’s ass, or UA 175 stuck in the middle at WTC 2, a lie for the ages frozen in pixels.

    Not that obvious lies have been any detriment to the warmongers of the past, even when George W. Bush told his whopper about watching the first WTC crash on the boob tube because “the TV was obviously on.”

    Well, Shrub is part of the ruling oligarchy, so he’s an untouchable with royal jelly or something, like Blair, who probably caught it from the Queen.

    In October 2001, Rudy Giuliani was even knighted by Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, who bestowed upon the NYC mayor the modest title of Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire ostensibly for his “outstanding help and support to the bereaved British families in New York.”

    Of course, successful destruction of WTC evidence had nothing to do with Rudy’s award in the same way that BBC’s foreknowledge of WTC 7′s destruction was just one of those doggone quirky things that happen, during false flags, when the evils hacks can’t get their timing right.

    Just one more thing. I noticed that the slim 9/11 articles section has been removed from the front page at Unz Review. Linh Dinh’s article from August 13, 2017 “George Orwell and Mohammed Atta Were Here” can be found under his name, as can the earlier sole entry in the now-defunct 9/11 section, author Philip Giraldi’s 10-25-2016 article “9/11 Truth?” which drew over 1,000 comments.

    https://news.antiwar.com/2018/04/09/red-crescent-says-no-evidence-of-chemical-attack-in-syrias-douma/
     
    Crisis Group's Sam Heller wordsmiths a different question, the next question:
    Can the U.S. Respond to the Syria Chemical Weapons Attack without Risking Escalation?

    After a seemingly sanguine introduction --


    So far, no international party has said definitively or presented conclusive evidence that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons use. . . .
     
    Heller tightens the frame to fit a preconceived image:

    While the lack of access makes it difficult to immediately verify, chemical weapons use would be consistent with past behaviour by the Syrian government. The government has repeatedly employed chlorine and, more infrequently, sarin gas against areas under rebel control, as documented by nonpartisan international bodies such as the United Nations-established Joint Investigative Mechanism and the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic. Chemical attacks fit within a broader strategy the government has used of targeting civilians and fighters alike in rebel-held areas. Through brutal means, this strategy renders these areas highly dangerous and ultimately unlivable, permitting no viable alternative to government control.
     
    That last bit is problematic: if gassed "areas are rendered unlivable," will the British be holding hosts of quiet funerals for fallen White Helmet rescuers who entered the areas and came in body-contact with victims?

    Heller next constructs a scenario intended to provide a rationale for the Syrian government to have made the attack, then reports that


    "Syria’s T-4 airbase was hit by an apparent Israeli airstrike on the morning of 9 April, although it remains unclear whether the strike was related to the Douma chemical attack. . . .from Lebanese airspace . . . killing seven Iranians. . . . "
     
    Though Israel declined to comment, Heller noted that

    "Israel also struck the T-4 base in February, after an Iranian drone it said was launched from the base entered Israeli airspace."
     
    If all is fair in love and war, one must forebear pointing out the hypocrisy of Israel attacking a Syrian target from Lebanese airspace in retaliation for Iran flying drones over Israeli airspace. However, the same logic conveys the right to Iran and/or Syria and/or Russia to attack an Israeli launching site in retaliation for its attacks on Syria.

    But even wars have rules, that civilized people comply with -- statesmen like Sergei Lavrov and Vladimir Putin understand this. But when the adversary/aggressor is a psychopath who disdains convention's rules and limits, then what?

    Israel is not like a drunk or addict that has hit the wall -- such a person is, at that point, ready for intensive rehabilitation. But a psychopath is not in that category.

    What huge imago made
    A psychopathic god?
    - W H Auden

    How does one deal with a psychopath?
    How does one deal with a rabid dog? Can a rabid dog be medicated, or re-trained?
    What signals do Israelis send about how an entity that fails to comply with demanded norms should be treated? Israelis insist that such entities respond "only to force." Projection may be as close to insight as a psychopath can get.

    If it is the case that Israel can only be dealt with by force, that the rabid dog must be put down, then what are we to make of Phil Weiss's recent claim that Israel's attacks on Palestinians has caused American Jews to distance themselves from Israel.
    Does that mean they will ignore the mad dog as long as it does not roam on their street, or does that mean they will agree that for the good of their own neighborhood as well as the entire community, the dog must be put down?

    , @Twodees Partain
    "You might think it would be easier if not more foolproof for the warmongers to stage a fake chemical attack in Syria by 2018 than it was staging the false flag attack on the WTC in 2001,"

    Maybe they haven't grabbed for the gold ring, a faked chemical attack in Israel, because those fakes are much more readily exposed as fakes than they were in '01. Maybe, though, they are hoping to disable internet outlets so that a faked attack on Israel can be staged , starting WWIII in a day or so unchallenged by any debunkers.

    So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil. Does that make sense to the reader?
     
    Yes, absolutely. Sounds 100% vintage Putin, although I don't consider these impulses "pure evil" except in the eyes of partisans. It's also untrue that he "shot himself in the foot", as the event, if anything, strengthened his image for the election. The world cup has not been cancelled and is at no risk of being cancelled even if some spoiled-sports don't show up.
    I'd also add that Skripal was released by Medvedev, not Putin, that the claim Skripal could no longer do damage to Russia is supposition, and that the pettiness of going after apparent pipsqueaks makes the threat toward bigger fish to fry stronger.
    None of that however proves Putin did it. It's just a possibility. After the dissolution of the USSR, there was enough chaos that private individuals seeking revenge could have gotten hold of military poisons. So this can also be a private act of revenge by someone with access and knowhow. It could also be the work of Ukraine or someone else trying to frame Putin.

    So are you implicitly suggesting Putin tried to kill a Mr Nobody with… wait for it… a f*cking military grade nerve agent with 10x the power of VX!? and failed to kill the tough-as-nails Skripal after succesful delivery!? and his daughter!?

    Come on now. Honest.

    Are you f*cking kidding me!?

    Besides that, they do have special compounds that give you a good ol’ heart attack and leave no trace, you silly boy. They had them in the 70′s, God knows what they’ve got now.

    I love how obtuse Konspiracy Kooks are. The only idiots on the planet who haven’t heard of signature killings intended to send a message. Konspiracy Kooks: “WTF? Why would drug dealers behead people or give them Colombian neck ties when bullets are so much more efficient, and don’t send a message? LOLZ.”

    Dumb fucks.
     
    Of course, one major advantage of the "signature killings" to which you refer is that they actually kill the target, unlike (we are supposed to believe) this super duper 8-10 times as deadly as VX compound the Russians supposedly tried to use in their signature bumbling but at the same time cunningly evil manner.

    Interesting to see you seemingly backing the (literally stupid) government line on this. If there are "Konspiracy Kooks" in this case, it's certainly the people who actually believe the nonsense put about by the May government and all the usual suspects about a supposed Russian conspiracy to create a disastrous diplomatic mess in the process of trying to use a fantastically complicated scheme to kill a former spy they clearly didn't care much about and whom the UK intel people clearly didn't think was at all at risk (for all their transparent lies after the fact about a supposed "pattern" of Russian killings of such people) since they were quite happy for him to live openly under his own name, without protection and with his address a matter of public record.

    So you're a Konspiracy Kook, eh? I suppose that means you believe the remarkably similar nonsense about the Assad government launching chemical attacks whenever it's most disadvantageous for them and most useful for the usual warmongering suspects? Seems odd to believe in one daft Konspiracy Theory without adding the other one as well, since they are superficially so similar and seem to appeal to broadly the same types of people.

    I hadn't realised you were suffering so badly from Putin Derangement Syndrome.

    Who is a konspiracy kook? follow the link to the Congressional hearing starting at second 20 you shit-for-brains muppet.

    What is the point of sending a message brainiac? Lets see, mafia bosses send messages to would be informants and to would be transgressors of the underworld's unwritten laws.

    What was the fucking point of killing this nobody in such a silly way, you silly man?!

    Was it then to send the World the clear message "Putin is a mafia boss and Russia a mafia state"?

    That is not how democratic, respectable governments operate, but mafia states, organized crime groups and dictatorships. Democratic governments kill covertly when the target is in a Western country.

    If your transgression was public and outrageous enough or your persona was publicly demonised enough and if you are located in a developing country, they just drone your ass Jihadi John's style, or have you raped with a bayonet Gaddafi style. They would never ever do that if the target is in a Western country! really bad diplomatic backlash and a PR disaster!

    Hasn't been the anti Russia propaganda narrative that Putin was a quasi dictator and that Russia was a mafia state? Why in the world would he want to reinforce that image you muppet?

    Colombian ties? leftists are swivel-eyed maniacs? ahaha give me a fucking break. You have seen definitely too many movies and the Sopranos episodes, muppet. Your mushy brains are ready to serve. What a fish you are my boy.

    Svigor,

    Let me perfectly clear; only a DUMB FUCK could possibly believe the ludicrous nonsense about Putin ordering the poisoning of the Skripals...
    So... are you a DUMB FUCK, or is it merely a case of extreme intellectual dishonesty?

    Btw, I remember when you tried to make a case that the Syrian government had gassed some folks in Syria, when your hero, the orange Bozo, ordered a criminal missile strike on Syria...

    Again, only dumb fucks believe that the Syrian government, then or NOW, gassed civilians in Syria.
    Not only there was never proof, but there was never motive, much less in the past 2 years...
    Only stupid idiots fall for such crude atrocity propaganda... then there are those who push this shit knowing perfectly well that the stories are false... which one are you? Rhetorical question...

    You have denounced the, what is it you call them, Russian flatheads, ultranats? The types can be really quite annoying and dishonest, particularly when dealing with Russia's imperial PAST, but you are their mirror image, a zamerican flathead/ultranat, eh?
    Which is WORSE, because, see, after the collapse of the Soviet Empire, Russia has basically given up imperialism, but the ZUS, oh, it merely aims at full spectrum dominance!

    I'll tell ya what; since you would like to share a foxhole with the Zionist shibags, your chance may come soon, check it out!
    With more Palestinians than Jews, Israel is waging a numerical war of attrition
    by Jonathan Cook / The National – 2 April 2018

    Last week, ahead of the Gaza protests, the Israeli army made an unexpected admission. It told parliamentarians that for the first time Jews are outnumbered by Palestinians living under Israeli rule, both inside Israel as citizens and in the territories under occupation. [...]
    In a sign of growing levels of desperation, the Diaspora Affairs Ministry, headed by settler leader Naftali Bennett, announced a plan last week to track down those around the globe with an “affinity” to Israel or Judaism. In the ministry’s view, 90 million people may qualify.

    "the fact that a military grade nerve agent would have surely killed both the Skripals as well as anyone else within 100 yards"

    Depends on the dose and route of administration. Article fail.

    Of course, having engineered undetectable toxins that give heart attacks since the 70′s it is only logical that a smart guy like Putin would have used a totally detectable and difficult to deliver and mortally dangerous to manipulate such as a nerve gas 10x as powerful as VX.

    Not to talk about the social panic and international drama created if discovered, which surely would because the guy had been a double agent.

    It's surreal to watch such staggering levels of dishonest incompetence among our globalist "elites".

    This is worrying. Nobody is that stupid so it's more like they don't care about credibility going forward. Like it won't matter.

    One of these days I am going to stop doing this (it seems to be a fool’s errand, but hopefully there’s some chaotic positive side-effect)… but here goes (again) –

    dishonest incompetence among our globalist “elites”

    One of the biggest category errors that people make when considering the political class, is that the chaos that they generate is the result of ‘incompetence’ (or ‘stupidity’, or some other such trope).

    In fact, even though they are – by and large – second- and third-quintile talent, they are ruthlessly competent… so long as you premise things correctly and have a decent guess as to what their objectives are.

    That’s the key thing: their objectives are not what most normal people are led to believe. We’re encouraged to think that the political class give a flying rat’s ass about ‘national greatness’ (or even less plausibly, social welfare/public will/public good etc).

    They don’t. Their objectives are all about themselves - their wealth, their social power, and their in-group reputation (among their peers, which does not include us). Blair, Bush, Straw, Hoon, Howard, Addington, Yoo, bybee. Feith, Bolton, Cheney and everyone else involved in the Iraq and Afghanistan war crimes, are doing just fine thank you very much.

    So there is no “dishonest incompetence”; there is dishonesty - as a noun – absolutely; but one thing about megalomaniacal sociopaths is that they have intense goal-focus and they dedicate that to ensuring extreme competence.

    …they don’t care about credibility going forward. Like it won’t matter.

    No, they absolutely don’t care about credibility (‘national’ or personal), because it absolutely won’t matter – to them, as far as their ability to achieve their actual, personal goals is concerned.

    They know that they will leave their tax-fed positions far richer than can be explained by any plausible combinations of savings rates and rates of return; they will also be exculpated (or at the very least, not inculpated) and their public image will be given a makeover (for a price). Bush is a perfect example: his approval rating is almost 3x its level when he left office (59% now, vs 22% then).

    Adjust your conceptual framework: try to see the world through the eyes of an individual for whom a dead baby is a photo opportunity.

    Then, and only then, will you cease to be surprised, shocked, saddened [insert inappropriate emotional trope here]… you might be (as I am, often) outraged, but that would be entirely appropriate.

    Saddam’s WMD, Gulf of Tonkin, etc., etc. And now a ridiculous false flag attack in Syria. Did it take place at all?
     
    And so it goes and continues to go, because this has worked since the last century. We have been reduced to an unquestioning blob of biological mass, incapable of reasoning, glued to the boob tube, engrossed in the scandals of celebrities.

    Did it take place at all? Did the holocaust take place at all? Was Hitler evil?
    Enquiring minds want to know.

    We have been reduced to an unquestioning blob of biological mass, incapable of reasoning, glued to the boob tube, engrossed in the scandals of celebrities.

    It’s not clear to me that we have ‘been reduced to’ this; it seems to me that it has been ever thus. (Obviously nobody was glued to the boob tube prior to the late 1920s… but still).

    1991′s “Babies from Incubators” (a Hill & Knowlton/Tom Lantos co-production) is a re-make of “Huns Bayonetting Babies” from WWI; the “questioning is treason” trope has been around since Sparta.

    Also, there have always – always - been people who could see through the bullshit; in WWI in Australia, they were sent white feathers and accused of cowardice, for the supreme crime of having the good sense not to involve themselves in a pissing contest between 3 European cousins.

    The cognitive bifurcation in humanity is, in all likelihood, not ‘getting worse’ – except relative to a brief period in the late 20th century. It’s more likely that it is returning to something approaching its natural level.

    It bounced around during the 20th century – the dummies became a larger proportion of the population when child mortality was dramatically reduced; then there was a wholesale change in the reproductive strategies of the dummies in the 1960s (after which women could surreptitiously control their fertility using contraceptives: they could have sex without procreating)… which reduced the fertility rate of the bottom half of the IQ distribution.

    Now, the cognitive profile of the West seems to be heading back to what it was at the start of the 20th century: the bottom 30% of the IQ distribution are at a higher base level than back then, but they’re still not much good for anything except cannon fodder… and we don’t do large-scale land wars anymore.

    It does look rather like those Syrian chemical weapon attacks that happen whenever the rebels are about to be defeated.

    I am pretty sure that it was not ordered within the British government and that most of the British government don't know where it came from, but are willing to believe it was Russia.

    While the CIA does have plenty of form on assassinations, the risk if they were found to be assassinating in Britain seems quite high due to the close CIA links with the UK intelligence sector. But CIA agents could have paid someone else to do it.

    Mossad is the one group that can act freely in the UK, has a record of assassinating scientists, engineers etc here, and unlike CIA, can take the risk of being caught. So it's a possibility - OTOH Israel has shown a lot less anti-Russian hatred than the US Deep State has.

    Normally I'd assume it was indeed Russia - I thought there was plenty of evidence the Polonium poisoning was Russia - and it still seems possible, but US or Mossad must be at least equally likely in this case. It's just possible it could have been British initiated but I doubt it.

    I do think it's most likely the person who actually poisoned them was not an employee of any agency.

    Bernhard over at his blog, Moon of Alabama, is advocating for the poisoning being real, but being traceable to shellfish poisoning. The Skripals had a shellfish dish at a local restaurant about 40 minutes prior to their discovery on the park bench. While very serious, and potentially fatal, if addressed with respiratory and cardiac support in a timely fashion, this poisoning is survivable.

    http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/04/the-best-explanation-for-the-skripal-drama-is-food-poisoning.html

    The toxin involved in classic shellfish poisoning is a naturally occurring neurotoxin, Saxitoxin, which agent remains toxic even after boiling or steaming, exactly the food preparation techniques likely to be employed in preparing shellfish for consumption. This is, indeed, what makes it so pernicious.

    That the Brits, primed for lies in aid of the Hate On The Rooskies campaign, lit on their story is unsurprising. Of course, the denial of the authorities at the hospital that anyone , the Skripals and the supposedly affected policeman, was suffering from exposure to a chemical weapon, along with the refusal of Porton Down officials to lend credence to the hoo haw that this was surely traceable to Novichok series chemical agents identifiably produced by the Russians kind of shot some holes in the big lies.

    Anyway, cast an eye at the post at Moon of Alabama. Bernhard is pretty damn good at winnowing facts from the chaff of propaganda, and when he makes a mistake, he openly confesses it instead of doubling down on a falsehood.

    That does sound possible, but to me, the most likely explanation is that nobody was poisoned, the Skripals were simply whisked away out of public view while the ridiculous scenario was pushed by the media.

    It would seem likely to me that Skripal would go along with his hosts to present a fake event, especially since he could have been threatened with deportation. The entire story is so ludicrous that it's easy for me to lean toward the possibility that the whole thing is a poorly produced fake.

    Red Crescent Says No Evidence of Chemical Attack in Syria’s Douma

    Patients treated by aid group not exposed to any chemical agents
    Jason Ditz Posted on April 9, 2018

    The Syrian Red Crescent issued a statement Monday dismissing the allegations of a weekend chemical weapon attack in the city of Douma. The statement insisted their medical personnel in the city had found no evidence any such attack took place.
     

    https://news.antiwar.com/2018/04/09/red-crescent-says-no-evidence-of-chemical-attack-in-syrias-douma/

    You might think it would be easier if not more foolproof for the warmongers to stage a fake chemical attack in Syria by 2018 than it was staging the false flag attack on the WTC in 2001, but even this simple but bogus narrative crumbles under perfunctory inspection, and the lies stick out like a pitchfork in a goat's ass, or UA 175 stuck in the middle at WTC 2, a lie for the ages frozen in pixels.

    Not that obvious lies have been any detriment to the warmongers of the past, even when George W. Bush told his whopper about watching the first WTC crash on the boob tube because "the TV was obviously on."

    Well, Shrub is part of the ruling oligarchy, so he's an untouchable with royal jelly or something, like Blair, who probably caught it from the Queen.

    In October 2001, Rudy Giuliani was even knighted by Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, who bestowed upon the NYC mayor the modest title of Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire ostensibly for his "outstanding help and support to the bereaved British families in New York."

    Of course, successful destruction of WTC evidence had nothing to do with Rudy's award in the same way that BBC's foreknowledge of WTC 7's destruction was just one of those doggone quirky things that happen, during false flags, when the evils hacks can't get their timing right.

    Just one more thing. I noticed that the slim 9/11 articles section has been removed from the front page at Unz Review. Linh Dinh's article from August 13, 2017 "George Orwell and Mohammed Atta Were Here" can be found under his name, as can the earlier sole entry in the now-defunct 9/11 section, author Philip Giraldi's 10-25-2016 article "9/11 Truth?" which drew over 1,000 comments.

    https://news.antiwar.com/2018/04/09/red-crescent-says-no-evidence-of-chemical-attack-in-syrias-douma/

    Crisis Group’s Sam Heller wordsmiths a different question, the next question:
    Can the U.S. Respond to the Syria Chemical Weapons Attack without Risking Escalation?

    After a seemingly sanguine introduction –

    So far, no international party has said definitively or presented conclusive evidence that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons use. . . .

    Heller tightens the frame to fit a preconceived image:

    While the lack of access makes it difficult to immediately verify, chemical weapons use would be consistent with past behaviour by the Syrian government. The government has repeatedly employed chlorine and, more infrequently, sarin gas against areas under rebel control, as documented by nonpartisan international bodies such as the United Nations-established Joint Investigative Mechanism and the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic. Chemical attacks fit within a broader strategy the government has used of targeting civilians and fighters alike in rebel-held areas. Through brutal means, this strategy renders these areas highly dangerous and ultimately unlivable, permitting no viable alternative to government control.

    That last bit is problematic: if gassed “areas are rendered unlivable,” will the British be holding hosts of quiet funerals for fallen White Helmet rescuers who entered the areas and came in body-contact with victims?

    Heller next constructs a scenario intended to provide a rationale for the Syrian government to have made the attack, then reports that

    “Syria’s T-4 airbase was hit by an apparent Israeli airstrike on the morning of 9 April, although it remains unclear whether the strike was related to the Douma chemical attack. . . .from Lebanese airspace . . . killing seven Iranians. . . . “

    Though Israel declined to comment, Heller noted that

    “Israel also struck the T-4 base in February, after an Iranian drone it said was launched from the base entered Israeli airspace.

    If all is fair in love and war, one must forebear pointing out the hypocrisy of Israel attacking a Syrian target from Lebanese airspace in retaliation for Iran flying drones over Israeli airspace. However, the same logic conveys the right to Iran and/or Syria and/or Russia to attack an Israeli launching site in retaliation for its attacks on Syria.

    But even wars have rules, that civilized people comply with — statesmen like Sergei Lavrov and Vladimir Putin understand this. But when the adversary/aggressor is a psychopath who disdains convention’s rules and limits, then what?

    Israel is not like a drunk or addict that has hit the wall — such a person is, at that point, ready for intensive rehabilitation. But a psychopath is not in that category.

    What huge imago made
    A psychopathic god?
    – W H Auden

    How does one deal with a psychopath?
    How does one deal with a rabid dog? Can a rabid dog be medicated, or re-trained?
    What signals do Israelis send about how an entity that fails to comply with demanded norms should be treated? Israelis insist that such entities respond “only to force.” Projection may be as close to insight as a psychopath can get.

    If it is the case that Israel can only be dealt with by force, that the rabid dog must be put down, then what are we to make of Phil Weiss’s recent claim that Israel’s attacks on Palestinians has caused American Jews to distance themselves from Israel.
    Does that mean they will ignore the mad dog as long as it does not roam on their street, or does that mean they will agree that for the good of their own neighborhood as well as the entire community, the dog must be put down?

  185. Generally, a good article. But the author is wrong in one thing: clumsy fake with Skripals is not the latest chapter. The latest is surprisingly clumsy (even for White Helmets, well known for the poor quality of their fakes) fake about alleged gas attack in Douma, Syria. As Syrian and Russian troops captured a lot of the chemical weapons containers with stuff (all made in “democratic” countries) belonging to head-choppers, they had to do without any props. Besides, head-choppers are right now surrendering Douma to the Syrian government. Naturally, nothing was spread in Douma, so the video had to be hastily concocted somewhere else. Pathetic quality shows that the makeshift studio used was not conducive even to their usual low level of fakes: the video is dismal, only bought and paid for “people” can possibly believe it. As we see, Macron, Merkel, and May are indeed bought and paid for.

Seems odd to believe in one daft Konspiracy Theory without adding the other one as well, since they are superficially so similar and seem to appeal to broadly the same types of people.

    I hadn’t realised you were suffering so badly from Putin Derangement Syndrome.

    Of course, one major advantage of the “signature killings” to which you refer is that they actually kill the target, unlike (we are supposed to believe) this super duper 8-10 times as deadly as VX compound the Russians supposedly tried to use in their signature bumbling but at the same time cunningly evil manner.
     
    Svigor is a bit on the slower side. Russia's public position is that they don't have those weapons. Now, whether anyone wants to accept that or not is immaterial. This is what they want the world to believe and that's the message they're sending.

    So, Svigor's proposal that they'd use a nerve agent for "signature killings intended to send a message" is obviously wrong. I believe he also lost the right to call anyone a "dumb fuck". At least for a while.

    , @Twodees Partain
    Svigor still hasn't learned to use the reply key. I once thought that maybe he didn't use the key so that those he addressed in his shitposts wouldn't see that he had replied to them, but decided that is giving him credit for a little basic intelligence.

    There's no hope for such a ninny.

    I hope you get the chance. Once you’ve shared that foxhole, you can come back and tell us what it’s like to be gang shagged by a half dozen IDF troopers you thought were your homies.
     
    Zionists (I'm talking Israelis here, not diaspora Jewish "leftist" phonies) take their own side in a fight. White Nationalists take their own side in a fight. Leftists are swivel-eyed maniacs; religious zealots with no love of their own kind, only their Holy Writ.

    Zionists currently think their best move is to side with the leftists, because diaspora Jewry. They think they'll be eaten last, something like that. So a conversation with a Zionist is ultimately about tactics, not motives. Leftists speak a whole other, alien language. There's no reasoning with them.

    A pox on both their houses, but I stand by what I said; I'd rather share a foxhole with a Zionist.

    Say what you will about the Israelis, but I don't see them on TUR calling Trump's wall "crazy."

    Besides that, they do have special compounds that give you a good ol’ heart attack and leave no trace, you silly boy. They had them in the 70′s, God knows what they’ve got now.
     
    I love how obtuse Konspiracy Kooks are. The only idiots on the planet who haven't heard of signature killings intended to send a message. Konspiracy Kooks: "WTF? Why would drug dealers behead people or give them Colombian neck ties when bullets are so much more efficient, and don't send a message? LOLZ."

    Dumb fucks.

    Who is a konspiracy kook? follow the link to the Congressional hearing starting at second 20 you shit-for-brains muppet.

    What is the point of sending a message brainiac? Lets see, mafia bosses send messages to would be informants and to would be transgressors of the underworld’s unwritten laws.

    What was the fucking point of killing this nobody in such a silly way, you silly man?!

    Was it then to send the World the clear message “Putin is a mafia boss and Russia a mafia state”?

    That is not how democratic, respectable governments operate, but mafia states, organized crime groups and dictatorships. Democratic governments kill covertly when the target is in a Western country.

    If your transgression was public and outrageous enough or your persona was publicly demonised enough and if you are located in a developing country, they just drone your ass Jihadi John’s style, or have you raped with a bayonet Gaddafi style. They would never ever do that if the target is in a Western country! really bad diplomatic backlash and a PR disaster!

    Hasn’t been the anti Russia propaganda narrative that Putin was a quasi dictator and that Russia was a mafia state? Why in the world would he want to reinforce that image you muppet?

    Colombian ties? leftists are swivel-eyed maniacs? ahaha give me a fucking break. You have seen definitely too many movies and the Sopranos episodes, muppet. Your mushy brains are ready to serve. What a fish you are my boy.

    The clandestine activity represented by these *provocations* isn't even good spycraft. The Skripal case and the latest use of chlorine gas in Syria are risible, clumsy, amateur attempts to wangle the empire into war that the callowest rube could see through.

    Such has indeed been the MO for over 120 years… others, such as the British, have acted in similar ways as well.

    The reason Muslims are overrunning many parts of England (and Sweden and Germany and France and elsewhere) isn’t because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly. Rather the motivations for the massive migrations (of Muslims and Africans and S. Americans and everybody else they can get) into all Western nations are motivated by a pure, incomprehensibly Satanic hatred for the people of the West.

    They’d use Martians if that was all that was available in order to see England destroyed, and sent reeling into a nightmare, Orwellian dystopia.

    Never underestimate the raw, visceral hatred of Leftists who were disappointed in their revolutionary expectations of the “working class.”

    Those swine never gave a damn about the working class; their concerns were used merely as pretexts by the ruling classes to consolidate more wealth and power into their own hands.

    I could not at that time know, as I did later, how men of wealth use the communist movement to bend workers to their will. So I quite willingly adopted the clichés about secrecy being necessary because of the brutality and savagery of the working-class enemies. I soon learned that the members exposed to the public were not the important Communists. [ Most of whom were Red millionaires as a matter of fact.]

    Russia is a country of unbridled greed. An insatiable appetite for blood , land , alcohol ,and loot . Why else then does the worlds largest country need to invade and occupy more lands ? Invasion,occupation and genocide in Chechnya ? More occupation and killing in Crimea and Dagestan . Occupation and opression and turning Kaliningrad into a toxic waste dump.

    Something is fundamentally wrong with the rabid bear . Alcoholism , krokodil and heroin may mask the symptoms but we all see the utter rot in the negative birth rate , low life expectancy , high suicude rate , high homicide rate , high abortion rate and rampant alcoholism and drug addiction. The men are drunks and theives and the women are sluts .

    Your decrying confirms that the British has done something wrong and they did poison Skripals in Salisbury England. This unscrupulous false flag op, crying foul and smearing the innocent for the crime they committed relentlessly is a special signature of the British/Anglo culture and trait. The following history provides the evidence the above is not allegation but fact.

    Nov 24, 1784, a British gunner on the ship “Lady Hughes” fired cannon against Chinese law and killed two Chinese in Guangzhou. The British refused to hand over the gunner to the Chinese authority for trail and called up few hundred armed sailors to stop the Chinese authority from searching the perpetrator in the British warehouses and living compound.

    Anyhow the British was outwitted and the perpetrator was tried by the Chinese, convicted and executed in according to the Chinese law; during that time the British law also gave death penalty for the same crime.

    The British had been trampling other people’s sovereignty and law like India with impunity for a couple of hundreds of years already by then. Never a British was tried and punished for the crimes, murder or not, they committed since they supplanted the Spanish. British viewed themselves above all human beings and not bound by any other people’s law. The execution of the gunner made the British Council of Supercargos feel humiliated and devastated as well as being impotent and incompetent in the eyes of their superiors in London and their peers (other Europeans) in Guangzhou.

    In order to cover their crimes and failures, the megalomaniac British decried Chinese legal system was barbaric and sanguinary relentlessly like Anonymous[338] is doing here to Russia. All the Europeans jumped on the British mudslinging bandwagon for the effort to gain extraterritoriality in China, so they could steal, loot, plunder, etc. Chinese wealth with impunity like Elizabeth I’s Sea Dogs. Soon after the “Lady Hughes” incident the view that entire Chinese legal system was barbaric and sanguinary or there is no law in China become the dominant representation of China ever since.

    The British then engineered Opium Wars for the vengeance of their “Lady Hughes” humiliation, and set to destroy the last nation denying their piracy and other unscrupulous deeds on the moral high ground. If history can be any guidance, the Anglo is not going to stop at smearing Russia; more vicious plot is going to come.

    No doubt we need a reminder of the pathetic strain of Chinese nationalism that regurgitates old grievances from times long past which should inspire Chinese people first with a determination to find the institutional failures responsible for China's failures from the moment modernity started to dawn. We need a reminder by hearing the symptoms you embody so we can fairly anticipate how Machiavellian [not an insult] Chinese leaders will behave as they accord some priority to pleasing the masses.

    But you should also take note that sounding unintelligent - even in an abusive rant intended to offend - is at best bad tactics. For example your taking Anonymous's comment to prove anything - as in your first sentence - is beyond bizarre it is so idiotic. Worthy only of a 10 year olds' playground. Do spare us on UR please.

    Don't know how true it is, but this is what Veterans Today says about the captured spooks and weapons lab:

    Russia also confirms that there are British, American, Israeli and Saudi intelligence officers who were caught by the Syrian army in one of the heavily fortified operations rooms during the invasion of the Syrian army and its allies of the East Ghouta.”

    American, British and Israeli military personnel captured in Syria have confirmed they were ordered to stage chemical attacks in East Ghouta by their governments.

    The Americans are still being held along with Israeli’s while British prisoners are being negotiated for. Sources in Damascus told us that representatives of Oman in Damascus approached the Russian Office of Reconciliation on behalf of Britain for the return of British chemical warfare personnel.

    https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/03/14/trumps-jihadi-chemical-weapons-factory-captured-in-ghouta-in-living-color/

    https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/04/08/proof-intel-drop-trump-bolton-behind-syria-chemical-attacks-confirmed/

    ‘…Don’t know how true it is, but this is what Veterans Today says about the captured spooks and weapons lab…’

    Thanks for the links…

    Gordon Duff [Vietnam Marine grunt veteran] and Jim Dean of Veterans Today are well meaning fellows and are on the ‘right team’ so to speak…

    They are often dismissed as Conspiracy Kooks…and they sometimes go a bit over the top…

    I suspect this is because they rely on sources that are perhaps somewhat unreliable…[VT says some of these sources are ex intel guys...so some truth bending might go with the territory...]

    Here is what we do know…last month the Syrian government did say it found a ‘rebel’ chemical weapons workshop and this was reported in Sputnik and RT…

    Reuters ran a one-sentence ‘report’ on this…

    What has been documented much more extensively especially in RT and Sputnik are huge conventional weapons caches seized by the SAA as it liberates various locations from terrorists…often these weapons are visibly stamped with manufacturer data plates from US and Nato countries…

    This is beyond doubt…

    So the logical question is how are these holed up bearded fanatics in Ghouta…who are surrounded on all sides…getting this stuff for the last five years…?

    There is a logistics question here…who and how has been smuggling this into the besieged enclave [including possibly chemical weapons]…?

    That is really cloak and dagger stuff no doubt…and actual verifiable info would be very hard to come by…

    So there could be some truth to this idea that various Western spooks or at least contractors are involved in this game of smuggling in everything from guns to chlorine…[which is readily available]…

    However it is doubtful that these personnel would have been caught by the advancing SAA…

    Even if SAA did capture various Nato operators or agents there…it might not be something that the Russian side would publicize…[I'm just guessing as a layman here...Mr. Giraldi would certainly have a much better grasp on the nuts and bolts of such things...]

    So overall I think this is a case where VT is perhaps a bit too optimistic…

    Still…reading Duff and Dean is always helpful…for instance we have this…

    ‘…We are still waiting for the first verifiable report of a jhadi and or family that has been killed by one of these “attacks”, or a cemetery of the gassed martyrs, or even a headstone for such.

    The amateur script writers forgot about that part…’

    That’s a very good observation…

    With all these ‘gas victims’ churned out by the white helmets how is it that no such ‘martyr’ graves have ever turned up…?

    Or this observation…as to how those chemicals might be used that the headchoppers are cooking up in their workshops…

    ‘…As for what these could be used for, how about throwing into a cellar filled with human shield pro-Damascus family members to generate a nice pile of bodies for our “un-free” Western media…’

    We do know that the Jaish headhcoppers just released a whole bunch of Syrian prisoners that they had been holding in on of their ‘jails’…as part of the evacuation deal…many of them women…these freed prisoners have now been evacuated and taken to a sports stadium in Damascus for reunion with family…

    Photo showing the buses with the freed prisoners below…

    On March 26…even the French AFP ran this story…

    ‘…In the largest city of the East Ghouta district, Douma, civilians and military personnel have been liberated from the “jail of repentance,” where they were kept prisoners for years by Jaish al-Islam terrorists…’

    There were hundreds of women and children from the city of Adra, which was captured by terrorists in December 2013. Adra is one of the largest industrial cities in the suburbs of Damascus.

    “In such places, extremists tortured the abducted people, forcing them to repent of their sins. Thus, they wanted to realize the doctrine of a peaceful revolution. But what sins do children, who were the greatest number in the prison, have to repent?” the source asked.

    According to the source, there were 3,500 inmates in the prison. The terrorists used them as a human shield to put pressure on the Syrian army, which did everything possible to save the lives of the people of the city…’

    So these are the ‘good guys’ for whom Dump is sending the United States to war…?

    If he is as stupid as all that…then I certainly hope that the Russians don’t pull their punches…

    At this point Dump is beyond redemption…the sooner his disillusioned base cuts him loose the better…

    No, they most certainly are NOT. The problem is not with them talking about conspiracies, conspiracies do take place all the time...
    Problem is these guys are disinformation, especially Duffy.
    http://www.bollyn.com/14934/

    Gordon Duff: 9-11 Disinfo Toad
    The fact that Gordon Duff is a "disinfo toad" is certainly no secret. He has openly admitted that "about thirty percent of what is on Veterans Today is patently false" and that at least forty percent of what he writes is "purposely partially false". ...

    ... Gordon Duff, senior editor of the website Veterans Today, published an article on May 20, 2014, that can only be described as rank disinformation that is meant to obscure the truth about 9-11. To deliberately spread lies about what caused the deaths of thousands of people on 9-11 is an egregious and unforgivable offense. ... The Duff article, which was edited by Jim W. Dean, is so full of errors that it cannot be taken seriously, except perhaps as evidence of his role as an agent of disinformation about 9-11.
     
    Also, both Duff and Dean were 100% supporters of the ZUS/NATO war on Libya, and became furious when several readers protested and confronted them in the comment sections, which led to censorship. Maybe Duffy boy's defense contracts he claims to have in Africa and the ME had something to do with that.

    The Ziowest likes to attack on holidays. This “gas” attack happened on the Last day of Passover and on Orthodox Easter Good Friday. Purim attacks – Iraq invasion 1991 ended on Purim, Iraq invasion 2003 started on Purim, Libya bombed on Purim Eve 2011 and Dresden was bombed on
    2/14-15/45 on Purim, Ash Wednesday, and Valentines Day – the Zio-west had a trio of holidays for that holocaust. On Purim 2018, Putin gave his big speech about weapons he has as a warning. He knows how the Ziowest loves Purim for war games.

    The Zios also likes to play with numbers too. The 70th anniversary of the founding of Israel is on 5/14/18. The gas attack this year happened on the 7th day of the 4th month. Haley talked about this happening last year exactly the same time. In 2017, the US bombed Syria on the 7th day of the 4th month . She went on and on about it being exactly a year later like it was big deal for her to do some “work”. MLK had a similar deal with ZUS. He gave his Beyond Vietnam speech on 4/4/67. He said that the US is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world. It still is 51 years later. He was assassinated by the US deep state exactly a year later on 4/4/68. His speech for that day was “America is going to Hell”. I guess the ZUS deep state likes year anniversaries for its terror games. It is odd that the “gas” attack last year happened on 4/4/17. Two fours again.

    Number 11

    The number 11 is a number that often comes up for ZUS terror attacks - 911 and 9/11/73 Chile coup and 11/22/63 – JFK assassination. 11 and two 11s (22).

    The criminals of the Zio-west may plan an attack on Syria on 4/11/18 – another 11.

    33 number

    4/11/18 is exactly 33 days from the 70th anniversary of Israel’s founding. 33 is considered 3 11s in numerology.

    David reigned for 33 years in Jerusalem. (1 Ch 3,4) . The Hebraic tradition distinguishes 32 ways of the Wisdom to which it adds "Ain Soph" or the unknowable one. So 33 again.

    Trump must have purposely put the US embassy in Jerusalem to get ready for this “big” anniversary. In order to “celebrate” the 33 years of David’s rulership of Jerusalem with perhaps an “invasion” of Syria 33 days before the “big” day. Hope it does not happen. But with all the insane chatter coming from the ruling Ziowest crazies at the UN on 4/9/18 it does not give much hope for any humane or rational thinking to come from the Ziowest.

    Other 33s - 233 is Skull and Bones. 33 is the highest level for Masons.

    6 number

    6 points of the Star of David, D-day was on 6/6/44 - 6th day, 6th month, 6th hour. 666. Operation Overlord it was called. 6 million for the Holocaust.

    Number 7

    Israel’s 70th anniversary must be a very “big” deal for Ziowest. The number 7 is another trigger number for them. Here is Christiane Lagarde talking about how great the number seven is on Jan. 2014. 2014 was the start of the intense anti-Russia hysteria we have today, it started that year when the US backed Banderists took over Ukraine on 2/22/14. That is an odd number combination. 11 number again, 22 is considered 2 x 11 by our ruling Zio-numerologists.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYmViPTndxw

    The Zios are definitely playing games with numbers like they have some “magical” powers.

    LaGarde is an important name in French History. It is hard to look up though because most hits are Christine LeGarde.

    No, there's no equivalence here between making obviously silly assertions to try to support a failed narrative, and pointing out the obvious flaws in those obviously silly assertions.

    If there were, even an "anon" like you might have bothered to actually try to argue the case, rather than just insisting, in effect, "nobody knows anything so nobody can say anything".

    I have briefly pointed to, argued for, the non negligible possibilities which give the lie to the overconfident assertions of Colonel Blimps and other blow hards. Surprisingly it has been necessary to point out to a sane enough commenter that the (asserted) fact that Putin could have ensured death from a heart attack with no possibility of certain detection doesn’t negate the possibility (whatever low probability one assigns in almost total ignorance) that he didn’t want it to be undetectable. As it is, what lessons do you think potential spies and defectors might draw – even without knowing who was responsible in this case?

    One can always make this kind of argument that a particular possibility cannot be ignored, however silly on its face, because you can't prove it is absolutely zero. It's rather a waste of time, imo.

    Why do you feel a need to defend the establishment narrative on this supposed incident? Frankly, having looked into it pretty closely, I maintain the position that there are no credible arguments in support of it, and only ignorance can excuse defending it.

    Would not it be possible to substitute the U.S. or, let’s say, England for Russia and then list. Their illegal invasions and exploits? They could easily match the social vices and degeneracy..

    Your decrying confirms that the British has done something wrong and they did poison Skripals in Salisbury England. This unscrupulous false flag op, crying foul and smearing the innocent for the crime they committed relentlessly is a special signature of the British/Anglo culture and trait. The following history provides the evidence the above is not allegation but fact.

    Nov 24, 1784, a British gunner on the ship “Lady Hughes” fired cannon against Chinese law and killed two Chinese in Guangzhou. The British refused to hand over the gunner to the Chinese authority for trail and called up few hundred armed sailors to stop the Chinese authority from searching the perpetrator in the British warehouses and living compound.

    Anyhow the British was outwitted and the perpetrator was tried by the Chinese, convicted and executed in according to the Chinese law; during that time the British law also gave death penalty for the same crime.

    The British had been trampling other people’s sovereignty and law like India with impunity for a couple of hundreds of years already by then. Never a British was tried and punished for the crimes, murder or not, they committed since they supplanted the Spanish. British viewed themselves above all human beings and not bound by any other people’s law. The execution of the gunner made the British Council of Supercargos feel humiliated and devastated as well as being impotent and incompetent in the eyes of their superiors in London and their peers (other Europeans) in Guangzhou.

    In order to cover their crimes and failures, the megalomaniac British decried Chinese legal system was barbaric and sanguinary relentlessly like Anonymous[338] is doing here to Russia. All the Europeans jumped on the British mudslinging bandwagon for the effort to gain extraterritoriality in China, so they could steal, loot, plunder, etc. Chinese wealth with impunity like Elizabeth I’s Sea Dogs. Soon after the “Lady Hughes” incident the view that entire Chinese legal system was barbaric and sanguinary or there is no law in China become the dominant representation of China ever since.

    The British then engineered Opium Wars for the vengeance of their “Lady Hughes” humiliation, and set to destroy the last nation denying their piracy and other unscrupulous deeds on the moral high ground. If history can be any guidance, the Anglo is not going to stop at smearing Russia; more vicious plot is going to come.

    No doubt we need a reminder of the pathetic strain of Chinese nationalism that regurgitates old grievances from times long past which should inspire Chinese people first with a determination to find the institutional failures responsible for China’s failures from the moment modernity started to dawn. We need a reminder by hearing the symptoms you embody so we can fairly anticipate how Machiavellian [not an insult] Chinese leaders will behave as they accord some priority to pleasing the masses.

    But you should also take note that sounding unintelligent – even in an abusive rant intended to offend – is at best bad tactics. For example your taking Anonymous’s comment to prove anything – as in your first sentence – is beyond bizarre it is so idiotic. Worthy only of a 10 year olds’ playground. Do spare us on UR please.

    Hi Kiza,

    in a smaller context, this reminds me of something I witnessed recently, with hurricane Irma.

    Hurricane Irma was a significant sized hurricane in 2017, that potentially might have caused significant damage to some parts of Florida, if it had remained a category five and hit Florida directly, as the media obviously hoped it would.

    And then the hype went full-blown *on*, in a way I'd never seen before, (even tho they typically hype these storms to maximum effect). But with Irma it was so over the top as to be beyond ludicrous, with calls of a "Hell Storm!", and demands to evacuate your families if you love your children!, blah, blah..

    They'd computer enhanced the satellite imagery and plastered in on every TV and Internet computer screen from Florida to all the way up the coast in the North East US and presumably beyond.

    http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/goes/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/I05_090517_055442_HurrIrma_Bach_nolabels.png

    OK, so far, par for the course, even if a lot more over the top.

    But then this is where it gets really interesting. Because I knew people living in Florida at the time. (I wasn't there, I was in the Midwest). But as Irma approached, there was a natural desire to stay informed, but something happened, and this is what I'm getting at.

    At the point when Irma was approaching the coast of S. Florida, a media blackout occurred for every single honest image of radar or satellite feed or anything else that might give people an honest assessment of what exactly this hurricane was doing.

    It was total, across the board.

    You could not find information from NOAA, National Hurricane Center, National Weather Service or anywhere else, at the very time you needed it most.

    They all blacked out all actual coverage of the storm, and forced anyone who wanted to know anything about it, to go to the commercial channels like The Weather Channel or CNN or other sources of pure, over-the-top - hype.

    I know some really computer savvy youngsters, who're in the business, and I asked them to use all their skills, to find an honest radar or satellite imagery of the storm, as it was approaching Florida, and every one of them came back to me and said it had been scrubbed from every source on the Internet. It simply was not there. Right when millions of people wanted it the most.

    So that was when I learned that even now, the entire Internet (and obviously cable and network TV) is under total control.

    And they didn't even wait for something like a war to clamp down and censor the Internet, they showed their hand, (at least to me) for something as mundane as causing a deliberate panic.

    They usually cause a deliberate panic, and then say 'it's better to be safe than sorry', blah, blah.

    But in this case they wanted a massive evacuation. They said things like 'do you love your family? Are you willing to see your children die because you were too lazy to leave?

    'Do you know what a nine foot wall of water will do to your home?!'

    Anyways, they wanted to manufacture this terror and panic and they did so, but in this case they used their total domination of the access to information, and certainly showed me how full-spectrum it actually is.

    When we really need to know what's happening, is when will all be more in the dark, (and subject to only their lies) than even before the Internet was available, and all we had were the newspapers or radio.

    They say China's Internet is controlled but I saw total control when it came to Irma.

    @FB

    '...Don’t know how true it is, but this is what Veterans Today says about the captured spooks and weapons lab...'
     
    Thanks for the links...

    Gordon Duff [Vietnam Marine grunt veteran] and Jim Dean of Veterans Today are well meaning fellows and are on the 'right team' so to speak...

    They are often dismissed as Conspiracy Kooks...and they sometimes go a bit over the top...

    I suspect this is because they rely on sources that are perhaps somewhat unreliable...[VT says some of these sources are ex intel guys...so some truth bending might go with the territory...]

    Here is what we do know...last month the Syrian government did say it found a 'rebel' chemical weapons workshop and this was reported in Sputnik and RT...

    Reuters ran a one-sentence 'report' on this...

    What has been documented much more extensively especially in RT and Sputnik are huge conventional weapons caches seized by the SAA as it liberates various locations from terrorists...often these weapons are visibly stamped with manufacturer data plates from US and Nato countries...

    This is beyond doubt...

    So the logical question is how are these holed up bearded fanatics in Ghouta...who are surrounded on all sides...getting this stuff for the last five years...?

    There is a logistics question here...who and how has been smuggling this into the besieged enclave [including possibly chemical weapons]...?

    That is really cloak and dagger stuff no doubt...and actual verifiable info would be very hard to come by...

    So there could be some truth to this idea that various Western spooks or at least contractors are involved in this game of smuggling in everything from guns to chlorine...[which is readily available]...

    However it is doubtful that these personnel would have been caught by the advancing SAA...

    Even if SAA did capture various Nato operators or agents there...it might not be something that the Russian side would publicize...[I'm just guessing as a layman here...Mr. Giraldi would certainly have a much better grasp on the nuts and bolts of such things...]

    So overall I think this is a case where VT is perhaps a bit too optimistic...

    Still...reading Duff and Dean is always helpful...for instance we have this...


    '...We are still waiting for the first verifiable report of a jhadi and or family that has been killed by one of these “attacks”, or a cemetery of the gassed martyrs, or even a headstone for such.

    The amateur script writers forgot about that part...'
     

    That's a very good observation...

    With all these 'gas victims' churned out by the white helmets how is it that no such 'martyr' graves have ever turned up...?

    Or this observation...as to how those chemicals might be used that the headchoppers are cooking up in their workshops...


    '...As for what these could be used for, how about throwing into a cellar filled with human shield pro-Damascus family members to generate a nice pile of bodies for our “un-free” Western media...'
     
    We do know that the Jaish headhcoppers just released a whole bunch of Syrian prisoners that they had been holding in on of their 'jails'...as part of the evacuation deal...many of them women...these freed prisoners have now been evacuated and taken to a sports stadium in Damascus for reunion with family...

    Photo showing the buses with the freed prisoners below...


    https://s20.postimg.org/s9tz0hl8d/Jaish_Prisoners_Evac.jpg


    On March 26...even the French AFP ran this story...


    '...In the largest city of the East Ghouta district, Douma, civilians and military personnel have been liberated from the “jail of repentance,” where they were kept prisoners for years by Jaish al-Islam terrorists...'
     

    There were hundreds of women and children from the city of Adra, which was captured by terrorists in December 2013. Adra is one of the largest industrial cities in the suburbs of Damascus.

    “In such places, extremists tortured the abducted people, forcing them to repent of their sins. Thus, they wanted to realize the doctrine of a peaceful revolution. But what sins do children, who were the greatest number in the prison, have to repent?” the source asked.

    According to the source, there were 3,500 inmates in the prison. The terrorists used them as a human shield to put pressure on the Syrian army, which did everything possible to save the lives of the people of the city...'
     

    https://s20.postimg.org/x9rf8ij65/1062570207.jpg


    So these are the 'good guys' for whom Dump is sending the United States to war...?

    If he is as stupid as all that...then I certainly hope that the Russians don't pull their punches...

    At this point Dump is beyond redemption...the sooner his disillusioned base cuts him loose the better...

    FB:

    Gordon Duff [Vietnam Marine grunt veteran] and Jim Dean of Veterans Today are well meaning fellows and are on the ‘right team’ so to speak…

    No, they most certainly are NOT. The problem is not with them talking about conspiracies, conspiracies do take place all the time…
    Problem is these guys are disinformation, especially Duffy.

    http://www.bollyn.com/14934/

    Gordon Duff: 9-11 Disinfo Toad
    The fact that Gordon Duff is a “disinfo toad” is certainly no secret. He has openly admitted that “about thirty percent of what is on Veterans Today is patently false” and that at least forty percent of what he writes is “purposely partially false”. …

    … Gordon Duff, senior editor of the website Veterans Today, published an article on May 20, 2014, that can only be described as rank disinformation that is meant to obscure the truth about 9-11. To deliberately spread lies about what caused the deaths of thousands of people on 9-11 is an egregious and unforgivable offense. … The Duff article, which was edited by Jim W. Dean, is so full of errors that it cannot be taken seriously, except perhaps as evidence of his role as an agent of disinformation about 9-11.

    Also, both Duff and Dean were 100% supporters of the ZUS/NATO war on Libya, and became furious when several readers protested and confronted them in the comment sections, which led to censorship. Maybe Duffy boy’s defense contracts he claims to have in Africa and the ME had something to do with that.

    As I am sure you are both well aware, sometimes you can understand a lot by reading propaganda.

    Actually, it is more interesting to me how Glenn Greenwald finally completely exposed himself as a sellout. For an undisclosed amount of money he sold the remaining Snowden info back to the regime via Omidyar, but he continued writing critical articles for a little while. Now, he has openly come out in support of the regime's CW lies. Now he burns out the last grains of his credibility and retires a wealthy man. Snowden has destroyed his own life so that this PoS queer member of the tribe can retire into comfort and luxury.

Why would drug dealers behead people or give them Colombian neck ties when bullets are so much more efficient, and don’t send a message? LOLZ.”

    Dumb fucks.
     
    Of course, one major advantage of the "signature killings" to which you refer is that they actually kill the target, unlike (we are supposed to believe) this super duper 8-10 times as deadly as VX compound the Russians supposedly tried to use in their signature bumbling but at the same time cunningly evil manner.

    Interesting to see you seemingly backing the (literally stupid) government line on this. If there are "Konspiracy Kooks" in this case, it's certainly the people who actually believe the nonsense put about by the May government and all the usual suspects about a supposed Russian conspiracy to create a disastrous diplomatic mess in the process of trying to use a fantastically complicated scheme to kill a former spy they clearly didn't care much about and whom the UK intel people clearly didn't think was at all at risk (for all their transparent lies after the fact about a supposed "pattern" of Russian killings of such people) since they were quite happy for him to live openly under his own name, without protection and with his address a matter of public record.

    So you're a Konspiracy Kook, eh? I suppose that means you believe the remarkably similar nonsense about the Assad government launching chemical attacks whenever it's most disadvantageous for them and most useful for the usual warmongering suspects? Seems odd to believe in one daft Konspiracy Theory without adding the other one as well, since they are superficially so similar and seem to appeal to broadly the same types of people.

    I hadn't realised you were suffering so badly from Putin Derangement Syndrome.

    I do recall svigor trying to defend the Trump 2017 Shayrat missile strike….

    Zionists (I'm talking Israelis here, not diaspora Jewish "leftist" phonies) take their own side in a fight. White Nationalists take their own side in a fight. Leftists are swivel-eyed maniacs; religious zealots with no love of their own kind, only their Holy Writ.

    Zionists currently think their best move is to side with the leftists, because diaspora Jewry. They think they'll be eaten last, something like that. So a conversation with a Zionist is ultimately about tactics, not motives. Leftists speak a whole other, alien language. There's no reasoning with them.

    A pox on both their houses, but I stand by what I said; I'd rather share a foxhole with a Zionist.

    Say what you will about the Israelis, but I don't see them on TUR calling Trump's wall "crazy."

    Besides that, they do have special compounds that give you a good ol’ heart attack and leave no trace, you silly boy. They had them in the 70′s, God knows what they’ve got now.

    Let me perfectly clear; only a DUMB FUCK could possibly believe the ludicrous nonsense about Putin ordering the poisoning of the Skripals…
    So… are you a DUMB FUCK, or is it merely a case of extreme intellectual dishonesty?

    Btw, I remember when you tried to make a case that the Syrian government had gassed some folks in Syria, when your hero, the orange Bozo, ordered a criminal missile strike on Syria…

    Again, only dumb fucks believe that the Syrian government, then or NOW, gassed civilians in Syria.
    Not only there was never proof, but there was never motive, much less in the past 2 years…
    Only stupid idiots fall for such crude atrocity propaganda… then there are those who push this shit knowing perfectly well that the stories are false… which one are you? Rhetorical question…

    You have denounced the, what is it you call them, Russian flatheads, ultranats? The types can be really quite annoying and dishonest, particularly when dealing with Russia’s imperial PAST, but you are their mirror image, a zamerican flathead/ultranat, eh?
    Which is WORSE, because, see, after the collapse of the Soviet Empire, Russia has basically given up imperialism, but the ZUS, oh, it merely aims at full spectrum dominance!

    I’ll tell ya what; since you would like to share a foxhole with the Zionist shibags, your chance may come soon, check it out!
    With more Palestinians than Jews, Israel is waging a numerical war of attrition
    by Jonathan Cook / The National – 2 April 2018

    Last week, ahead of the Gaza protests, the Israeli army made an unexpected admission. It told parliamentarians that for the first time Jews are outnumbered by Palestinians living under Israeli rule, both inside Israel as citizens and in the territories under occupation. [...]
    In a sign of growing levels of desperation, the Diaspora Affairs Ministry, headed by settler leader Naftali Bennett, announced a plan last week to track down those around the globe with an “affinity” to Israel or Judaism. In the ministry’s view, 90 million people may qualify.

    Go George! It is refreshing to see that at least one of our cousins from across the pond is still in command of their reasoning capabilities. Harsh? I love it that he doesn’t mince words and calls an idiot an idiot – and deservedly so.
     
    He's one in a million, that's for sure. I respect him hugely (and that's despite the fact I hate his general politics).

    I recall his performance in front of your Senate in 2005 when he basically tore them a new one. If you haven't seen it, it's worth a watch:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5u1skEoqLs
    (Galloway's on from around 6:30)

    As for Carlson, I like his overall politics much better and I've seen a few good performances from him, but with this particular one, given the context and timing, he earned Galloway-like status imo, in the sense that he deserves respect from both sides of the partisan political divide.

    Thank you for that video – I do recall watching it on CSPAN at the time and marveling at his enviable oratorial skills in eviscerating those two ziocons, Coleman and Levin. I wish there were more of him in the world and his performances were visible to more of our somnambulant citizenry. If he were able to run for president of this country, I would support him with all of my resources. But alas, we appear to be suffering from a lack of moral leadership as demonstrated by the gaggle of venal presidents since JFK who have been foisted on us under the banner of democratic choice.

    I can hardly think of a group of people more marginalized and disenfranchised than America's WASPs. And sure, they're being betrayed by their own, of course, but no more so than the Catholics are being betrayed by the Vatican.

    the cowardice and venality of the goyim leadership is fulsome across the landscape, from Catholic France and Italy and Poland and beyond. And yes, it includes the WASPs of England and the ZUS, but to pretend that all of these evils are emanating out of the WASP power structure, even as WASPs are a dying breed- their nations invaded, and their identity demonized, is beyond ludicrous.

    "So the British would have one believe that Vladimir Putin personally ordered the killing of a former British double agent who had been released from a Kremlin prison in a spy swap and who was no longer capable of doing any damage to Russia. He did that in spite of the fact that he had an election coming up and would be the host of the World Cup in the summer, an event that he would want to go smoothly. So he deliberately shot himself in the foot on both counts, allegedly because he wanted to send a message to traitors and also because just can’t help himself since he is a vindictive KGB type whose impulses are pure evil.

    Absolutely. Under the Putin regime, the body count of his enemies has grown. He put the "de Thirty-four Russian journalists in the last decade just somehow "died". Occam's Razor applies here.

    Savile became a friend of Margaret Thatcher… He reportedly spent eleven consecutive New Year’s Eves at Chequers with Thatcher and her family… Letters released in December 2012 by the National Archives under the thirty-year rule confirm the close friendship between Savile and Thatcher.
    In 1984, he was accepted as a member of the Athenaeum, a gentlemen’s club in London’s Pall Mall, after being proposed by Cardinal Basil Hume.
    Savile met Prince Charles through mutual charity interests, and Charles reportedly sent him gifts on his 80th birthday and a note reading: “Nobody will ever know what you have done for this country, Jimmy. This is to go some way in thanking you for that.”
    In the 1972 New Year Honours, Savile was appointed Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, entitled to append “OBE” to his signature.
    In the 1990 Queen’s Birthday Honours he was made a Knight Bachelor “for charitable services”, entitled to use the honorific prefix “Sir“. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher had made four attempts to have him knighted before succeeding in her final year in office.
    Savile was honoured with a Papal knighthood by being made a Knight Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of Saint Gregory the Great (KCSG) by Pope John Paul II in 1990.
    – There were more awards and prestigious memberships.

    It was widely known that Savile was a vicious pedophile. Similar to Blair, Savile had been protected by his powerful friends.

    “Immediately after Savile’s death, the BBC’s Newsnight programme began an investigation into reports that he was a sexual abuser. … Newsnight also discovered that Surrey Police had investigated allegations of abuse against Savile. … There was no public mention of the Newsnight investigation into Savile at the time … there had been a cover-up by the BBC. …
    By 19 October 2012, police were pursuing 400 lines of inquiry based on testimony from 200 witnesses via 14 police forces across the UK.”

    “It is now known that Jimmy Savile sexually abused hundreds of children and women at the height of his fame. Investigators believe the late Top of the Pops host preyed on around 500 vulnerable victims as young as two years old at institutions including the BBC’s broadcasting studios, 14 hospitals and 20 children’s hospitals across England.” https://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/jun/26/jimmy-savile-sexual-abuse-timeline

    I certainly wasn't aware that the connections the social climbing creep had made were so extensive but I might still quibble about his being part of the Establishment or observe that the word or concept doesn't remain a very useful tool for understanding and anslysis of politics, power and influence if you are going to count him as any more than a fringedwelling hanger on of the Establishment. Being someone who, as entertaining celebrity or old school friend of a Prime Minister, can rely on a secretary passing on your message or letter does'nt make you a person of influence such as "Establishment" connotes. (It occurs to me to Google "what is the difference between the concept of a UK Establishment and the US Deep State". Want to have a go at making the connection?).

    Mind you it is an interesting reflection on London clubs and their status that it was the Athenaeum that he joined. Membership is confined to those, now including women, who are "distinguished in the Arts, Sciences or Letters". (When I asked a friend who was a member, though only a quite senior partner in a firm of City solicitors, about the gaitered bishops I had observed he said "Oh Letters I suppose!"). There would be and have been senior civil servants who were members but I doubt that Jimmy Savile had much time in their company.

    Well done using a search engine but I'm afraid your "sir Savile' usage - repeated - disqualifies you from posing as having any reliable knowledge of the UK. Within the UK you might find a Lancashire labourer or Polish plumber who wouldn't say "Sir James - or Sir Jimmy Savile" except that most would probably call him just "Jimmy Savile" or "that slimy bastard Savile".

    Gordon Duff [Vietnam Marine grunt veteran] and Jim Dean of Veterans Today are well meaning fellows and are on the ‘right team’ so to speak…
     
    No, they most certainly are NOT. The problem is not with them talking about conspiracies, conspiracies do take place all the time...
    Problem is these guys are disinformation, especially Duffy.
    http://www.bollyn.com/14934/

    Gordon Duff: 9-11 Disinfo Toad
    The fact that Gordon Duff is a "disinfo toad" is certainly no secret. He has openly admitted that "about thirty percent of what is on Veterans Today is patently false" and that at least forty percent of what he writes is "purposely partially false". ...

    ... Gordon Duff, senior editor of the website Veterans Today, published an article on May 20, 2014, that can only be described as rank disinformation that is meant to obscure the truth about 9-11. To deliberately spread lies about what caused the deaths of thousands of people on 9-11 is an egregious and unforgivable offense. ... The Duff article, which was edited by Jim W. Dean, is so full of errors that it cannot be taken seriously, except perhaps as evidence of his role as an agent of disinformation about 9-11.
     
    Also, both Duff and Dean were 100% supporters of the ZUS/NATO war on Libya, and became furious when several readers protested and confronted them in the comment sections, which led to censorship. Maybe Duffy boy's defense contracts he claims to have in Africa and the ME had something to do with that.

    Sorry LK and FB, but the truth is somewhere between the two of you. I do consume VT, almost regularly but, of course, consider it always as potential disinformation from the US military intelligence. Only the things which get corroborated by totally unrelated sites pass muster.

    As I am sure you are both well aware, sometimes you can understand a lot by reading propaganda.

    Actually, it is more interesting to me how Glenn Greenwald finally completely exposed himself as a sellout. For an undisclosed amount of money he sold the remaining Snowden info back to the regime via Omidyar, but he continued writing critical articles for a little while. Now, he has openly come out in support of the regime’s CW lies. Now he burns out the last grains of his credibility and retires a wealthy man. Snowden has destroyed his own life so that this PoS queer member of the tribe can retire into comfort and luxury.

    A draft of the “Never Again Education Act” calls Holocaust education “a national imperative to educate students in the United States so that they may explore the lessons that the Holocaust provides for all people, sensitize communities to the circumstances that gave rise to the Holocaust, and help youth be less susceptible to the falsehood of Holocaust denial and distortion and to the destructive messages of hate that arise from Holocaust denial and distortion.”

    NY Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the lead sponsor of the legislation, will promote the bill on Tuesday at the Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights in New York City, accompanied by representatives of Hadassah, B’nai B’rith International and the Association of Holocaust Organizations.

    Also sponsoring the bill are Reps. Peter Roskam, R-Ill.; Ted Deutch, D-Fla.; Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla.; Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.; Kay Granger, R-Texas; Nita Lowey, D-N.Y.; and Dan Donovan, R-N.Y. Lowey and Granger both sit on the House of Appropriations Subcommittee.

    MI6 planted disinfo in HK media about an imminent China sponsored coup , supported by ethnic Chinese fifth columns.
    CIA planted ‘evidence’ of Chinese supplied arms , to be conveniently ‘discovered’ by Indon police

    That devious plot provoked a bloodbath by jihadists death squads against the PKI communists members and ethnic Chinese indons.

    CIA whistle blower, John Mcgehee,

    The Indonesian covert action of 1965, reported by Ralph McGehee, who was in that area division, and had documents on his desk, in his custody about that operation. He said that one of the documents concluded that this was a model operation that should be copied elsewhere in the world. Not only did it eliminate the effective communist party (Indonesian communist party), it also eliminated the entire segment of the population that tended to support the communist party – the ethnic Chinese, Indonesian Chinese. And the CIA’s report put the number of dead at 800,000 killed. And that was one covert action. We’re talking about 1 to 3 million people killed in these things.

    [2]

    [1]
    U.S. officials were particularly interested in linking the September 30th plotters to Beijing. They helped to spread stories about China’s alleged involvement and reported on caches of weapons purportedly “discovered” by the Indonesian army with the hammer and sickle conveniently stamped on them. “

    We have bonanza chance to nail chicoms on disastrous events in Indonesia,” Green wrote the State Department. He urged a “continuation [of] covert propaganda” as one of the “best means of spreading [the] idea of chicom complicity

    Deep data mining, medicine, banks, investment pundits and all other scientific fields keep past events as invaluable foundation to do their research, development and projection of the future. Even in court your past is the evidence to convict or disprove of your crime. Without past we have no future; only constantly referring to the past/history we can avoid past mistakes and create better future.

    That is the positive side of using past or history, but for the morally defunct psychopathic repeat crime offenders, past is the thing they want to hide, so they can repeat crimes without moral burden, if not claiming moral high ground.

    I use procedure established in the science and historical fact to prove the British/Anglo is a repeat crime offender, the poisoning episode in Salisbury is the same crime pattern the British/Anglo committed in the “Lady Hughes” episode. But if you only use denial and baseless allegation to white wash the fact that British/Anglo as repeat offender, it seems you are doing a poor job comparing to Colin Powell’s allegation that Iraqi has WMD with fake Photoshop evidence.

    So what important lessons do you derive from the failure of the great Han people for 300+ years to cope with the innovations stemming from a tiny handful of people in Europe?

    A special relationship which requires Washington to look the other way when the Indon army murdered US citizens…..
    Sounds familiar ???

    ———————————-
    U.S. Secretary Of State Condoleeza Rice’s recent visit to Jakarta was the concluding act in the Bush administration’s five-year drive to whitewash the Indonesian military’s sordid past, green light Indonesia’s occupation of West Papua, and forge another l ink in Washington’s plan to ring China with U.S. military bases and allies.

    To appease Jakarta, Washington exonerated the notorious indon army from the murder of several US citizens and framed a dozen of innocent people instead, just to get the Indons onboard its coveted anti Chinese bandwagon.

    what a lovely country !

    The one incid ent that caused the TNI trouble with the U.S. Congress, however, involved accusations that it had a role in the 2002 murder of two American teachers and an Indonesian colleague near the huge Freeport McMoRan gold and copper mine in West Papua.

    The TNI cl aimed the attack was engineered by the Free Papua Movement (OPM), a group resisting Indonesia’s 1969 unilateral seizure of West Papua.

    But the OPM vigorously denied any involvement in the ambush, and human rights groups and the local police instead implicated Kopassus.

    A police report argued that the OPM “never attacks white people,” and found that the teachers were killed with an M-16, the TNI’s basic weapon. The OPM is generally armed with bows and arrows. Based on the investigation of the incident, then Police Chief of West Papua concluded that the TNI was behind the ambush.

    Attorney General John Ashcroft and the FBI soon rode to Wolfowitz and Rice’s rescue, indicting self-described OPM “commander” Anth onius Wamang for the attack, even though the OPM says Wamang works for Kopassus. This past January, the FBI helped arrest Wamang and 11 other civilians, including a priest, a teenager and several farmers, for the murders.

    The arrests allowed the Bush adm inistration to declare Indonesia a “strategic partner,” and waive congressional restrictions on military aid.

    What nobody seems to have picked up is the emphasis – and red lines – on Gas; gas, gas attacks. Why is gas so much worse than being dismembered, disembowelled, and mutilated by high explosives? Certainly I would favour unconsciousness and death by gas before being smashed to pieces by depleted uranium.

    These relentlessly repeated claims are an exercise with the dual purpose of providing a subliminal message about the greatest tragedy in human history, repeated ad nauseam. The massive ‘gassing’ of European Jews some 65 years ago. Lest we forget.

    It does look rather like those Syrian chemical weapon attacks that happen whenever the rebels are about to be defeated.

    I am pretty sure that it was not ordered within the British government and that most of the British government don't know where it came from, but are willing to believe it was Russia.

    While the CIA does have plenty of form on assassinations, the risk if they were found to be assassinating in Britain seems quite high due to the close CIA links with the UK intelligence sector. But CIA agents could have paid someone else to do it.

    Mossad is the one group that can act freely in the UK, has a record of assassinating scientists, engineers etc here, and unlike CIA, can take the risk of being caught. So it's a possibility - OTOH Israel has shown a lot less anti-Russian hatred than the US Deep State has.

    Normally I'd assume it was indeed Russia - I thought there was plenty of evidence the Polonium poisoning was Russia - and it still seems possible, but US or Mossad must be at least equally likely in this case. It's just possible it could have been British initiated but I doubt it.

    I do think it's most likely the person who actually poisoned them was not an employee of any agency.

    ” OTOH Israel has shown a lot less anti-Russian hatred than the US Deep State has.”

    ‘Israel and the US Deep state’, a distinction without a difference.

    I love how obtuse Konspiracy Kooks are. The only idiots on the planet who haven’t heard of signature killings intended to send a message. Konspiracy Kooks: “WTF? Why would drug dealers behead people or give them Colombian neck ties when bullets are so much more efficient, and don’t send a message? LOLZ.”

    Dumb fucks.
     
    Of course, one major advantage of the "signature killings" to which you refer is that they actually kill the target, unlike (we are supposed to believe) this super duper 8-10 times as deadly as VX compound the Russians supposedly tried to use in their signature bumbling but at the same time cunningly evil manner.

    Interesting to see you seemingly backing the (literally stupid) government line on this. If there are "Konspiracy Kooks" in this case, it's certainly the people who actually believe the nonsense put about by the May government and all the usual suspects about a supposed Russian conspiracy to create a disastrous diplomatic mess in the process of trying to use a fantastically complicated scheme to kill a former spy they clearly didn't care much about and whom the UK intel people clearly didn't think was at all at risk (for all their transparent lies after the fact about a supposed "pattern" of Russian killings of such people) since they were quite happy for him to live openly under his own name, without protection and with his address a matter of public record.

    So you're a Konspiracy Kook, eh? I suppose that means you believe the remarkably similar nonsense about the Assad government launching chemical attacks whenever it's most disadvantageous for them and most useful for the usual warmongering suspects? Seems odd to believe in one daft Konspiracy Theory without adding the other one as well, since they are superficially so similar and seem to appeal to broadly the same types of people.

    I hadn't realised you were suffering so badly from Putin Derangement Syndrome.

    Of course, one major advantage of the “signature killings” to which you refer is that they actually kill the target, unlike (we are supposed to believe) this super duper 8-10 times as deadly as VX compound the Russians supposedly tried to use in their signature bumbling but at the same time cunningly evil manner.

    Svigor is a bit on the slower side. Russia’s public position is that they don’t have those weapons. Now, whether anyone wants to accept that or not is immaterial. This is what they want the world to believe and that’s the message they’re sending.

    So, Svigor’s proposal that they’d use a nerve agent for “signature killings intended to send a message” is obviously wrong. I believe he also lost the right to call anyone a “dumb fuck”. At least for a while.

    As my knowledge of Jewish history extends little beyond Paul Johnson's "History of the Jews" (recommended to me by a scholarly Rabbi) I am grateful for easy access to Heinrich Graetz's magnum opus. However, as I read the first two volumes and discovered that they were completed in 1874 I wanted to ask you or "anonymous [107]" what modern archaeology says about the Torah's myths and legends that Graetz seems happy to rely on. Having read Graetz's Wikipedia entry where he is accused of sloppy scholarship I am even more keen to get a modern scholarly update on the pre Babylonian exile history. Any chance you can point me efficiently in the right direction to find reviews, learned articles or indeed books which might serve my purpose? There is of course nothing in Graetz about the theory that the Hebrews got their monotheism from Akhnaten and his acolytes, let alone any idea that Moses was mythical.

    Red Crescent Says No Evidence of Chemical Attack in Syria’s Douma
    Patients treated by aid group not exposed to any chemical agents
    Jason Ditz Posted on April 9, 2018
    The Syrian Red Crescent issued a statement Monday dismissing the allegations of a weekend chemical weapon attack in the city of Douma. The statement insisted their medical personnel in the city had found no evidence any such attack took place.
     
    https://news.antiwar.com/2018/04/09/red-crescent-says-no-evidence-of-chemical-attack-in-syrias-douma/
     
    Crisis Group's Sam Heller wordsmiths a different question, the next question:
    Can the U.S. Respond to the Syria Chemical Weapons Attack without Risking Escalation?

    After a seemingly sanguine introduction --


    So far, no international party has said definitively or presented conclusive evidence that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons use. . . .
     
    Heller tightens the frame to fit a preconceived image:

    While the lack of access makes it difficult to immediately verify, chemical weapons use would be consistent with past behaviour by the Syrian government. The government has repeatedly employed chlorine and, more infrequently, sarin gas against areas under rebel control, as documented by nonpartisan international bodies such as the United Nations-established Joint Investigative Mechanism and the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic. Chemical attacks fit within a broader strategy the government has used of targeting civilians and fighters alike in rebel-held areas. Through brutal means, this strategy renders these areas highly dangerous and ultimately unlivable, permitting no viable alternative to government control.
     
    That last bit is problematic: if gassed "areas are rendered unlivable," will the British be holding hosts of quiet funerals for fallen White Helmet rescuers who entered the areas and came in body-contact with victims?

    Heller next constructs a scenario intended to provide a rationale for the Syrian government to have made the attack, then reports that


    "Syria’s T-4 airbase was hit by an apparent Israeli airstrike on the morning of 9 April, although it remains unclear whether the strike was related to the Douma chemical attack. . . .from Lebanese airspace . . . killing seven Iranians. . . . "
     
    Though Israel declined to comment, Heller noted that

    "Israel also struck the T-4 base in February, after an Iranian drone it said was launched from the base entered Israeli airspace."
     
    If all is fair in love and war, one must forebear pointing out the hypocrisy of Israel attacking a Syrian target from Lebanese airspace in retaliation for Iran flying drones over Israeli airspace. However, the same logic conveys the right to Iran and/or Syria and/or Russia to attack an Israeli launching site in retaliation for its attacks on Syria.

    But even wars have rules, that civilized people comply with -- statesmen like Sergei Lavrov and Vladimir Putin understand this. But when the adversary/aggressor is a psychopath who disdains convention's rules and limits, then what?

    Israel is not like a drunk or addict that has hit the wall -- such a person is, at that point, ready for intensive rehabilitation. But a psychopath is not in that category.

    What huge imago made
    A psychopathic god?
    - W H Auden

    How does one deal with a psychopath?
    How does one deal with a rabid dog? Can a rabid dog be medicated, or re-trained?
    What signals do Israelis send about how an entity that fails to comply with demanded norms should be treated? Israelis insist that such entities respond "only to force." Projection may be as close to insight as a psychopath can get.

    If it is the case that Israel can only be dealt with by force, that the rabid dog must be put down, then what are we to make of Phil Weiss's recent claim that Israel's attacks on Palestinians has caused American Jews to distance themselves from Israel.
    Does that mean they will ignore the mad dog as long as it does not roam on their street, or does that mean they will agree that for the good of their own neighborhood as well as the entire community, the dog must be put down?

    https://www.algemeiner.com/2018/04/10/never-again-education-act-to-teach-american-students-about-holocaust/
    A draft of the “Never Again Education Act” calls Holocaust education “a national imperative to educate students in the United States so that they may explore the lessons that the Holocaust provides for all people, sensitize communities to the circumstances that gave rise to the Holocaust, and help youth be less susceptible to the falsehood of Holocaust denial and distortion and to the destructive messages of hate that arise from Holocaust denial and distortion.”

    NY Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the lead sponsor of the legislation, will promote the bill on Tuesday at the Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights in New York City, accompanied by representatives of Hadassah, B’nai B’rith International and the Association of Holocaust Organizations.

    Also sponsoring the bill are Reps. Peter Roskam, R-Ill.; Ted Deutch, D-Fla.; Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla.; Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.; Kay Granger, R-Texas; Nita Lowey, D-N.Y.; and Dan Donovan, R-N.Y. Lowey and Granger both sit on the House of Appropriations Subcommittee.

    Russia is a country of unbridled greed. An insatiable appetite for blood , land , alcohol ,and loot . Why else then does the worlds largest country need to invade and occupy more lands ? Invasion,occupation and genocide in Chechnya ? More occupation and killing in Crimea and Dagestan . Occupation and opression and turning Kaliningrad into a toxic waste dump.

    Something is fundamentally wrong with the rabid bear . Alcoholism , krokodil and heroin may mask the symptoms but we all see the utter rot in the negative birth rate , low life expectancy , high suicude rate , high homicide rate , high abortion rate and rampant alcoholism and drug addiction. The men are drunks and theives and the women are sluts .

    Overall, pretty accurate. But permit me point out a few things:

    *There is no "land of Mohammed." His mission had nothing to do with land--it was about human hearts. Also, proper spelling is Muhammad. Indeed, when his daughter after his death, asked the first caliph (Muhammad's closest companion) if she could have a few things of her father, she was told that "a prophet has no possessions."

    *There are no Islamic countries, but there are Muslim-majority countries. As scholars have noted, the correct comparison should be between Christ and Koran, not Christ and Muhammad, because (according to both Christianity and Islam), Christ is the word of God just as for Muslims the Koran is the word of God.

    proper spelling is Muhammad

    the Koran

    Please don’t get me wrong, I am simply noting the minor irony of correcting one spelling, while getting another one wrong.

    The correct spelling for “Koran” is Qur’an, or more simply Quran.

    Peace :)

    You and me both, friend.

    It isn't only the Jews and the Moslems who will have cause to regret the war to end all (White) wars which is fast approaching.

    Moslems who will have cause to regret the war

    If such dire predictions come to pass, please remember that our regret will anyway be a short lived, like in, we won’t be around to regret any more. In a another life, in a blessed abode, we true monotheists are promised not to even comprehend what “regret” means.

    But, the godless heathen polytheist human worshippers who will most definitely initiate the “war to end all wars” will have an eternity of regret, as they get their multi-coloured hides roasted.

    I watched Tucker Carlson last night as well.

    He makes great points, and I'm encouraged that he's allowed to do so on to a big and important audience.

    I remember when his predecessor, Bill O'Rielly, claimed to have seen the evidence of Saddam's WMD, and told his audience, on the run up to war, and I was appalled. As indeed, it turned out he too was lying.

    When the ZUSA was entrenched in the highly profitable war on Vietnam, there seemed to be no way to end it. Protests in the streets and at the universities, and anger at the war and war pig$ seemed to no avail.

    But then a phenomena began. Fragging.

    one wonders....

    at seven minutes in, Carlson interviews a senator. The senator does his best to lie and deceive, as only a ZUS senator can. But Tucker eviscerates him on screen.

    now if this senator, and others like him, were themselves put into peril by these serial, treasonous wars for Israel, would they still be so keen to have Americans die, slaughtering innocent people- to bolster and benefit the main enemy of America; Israel?

    I imagine the parent of a young American, who's life was sacrificed to augment the career of Lindsey Graham. Or other Americans who're fed up with the endless wars for Israel, and are willing to do something about the treasonous scum who're demanding and foisting all of these Satanic wars.

    Just as Tucker says, any general who advocates for these wars, should be required to actually visit a battlefield, so too I wonder about the politicians, and how they eventually have to go home, and live among their constituents. What if some of the worst of them, like Graham for instance, were to actually suffer some consequence for all the evil he's done, and continues to do?

    Of course I'm not advocating anything illegal. Just ruminating on potential solutions to the Eternal Wars for Israel - which are nothing more or less than a continuation of the first two World Wars (for Israel) duh

    END the FED!

    (or watch your nation bankrupted and looted and made to die for Israel)

    I recently listened to an interview with Ron Paul on the Tom Woods show in which Ron said that when he was in congress he had stopped going to the security briefings given for congressmen because he thought they were just propaganda!

    I found it incredible that the back-channel information they’re all getting constantly is questionable enough to be obvious to an honest man.

    I wonder who is really informed. Somehow I don't see them giving Obama (or even Trump) actual intelligence.

    I suspect that they tell Trump 'Assad has used chemical weapons against his own people, and now we need you to read (or Tweet) a statement'.

    something like that. Hillary was probably given actual info, because they knew she was one of them. But Obama didn't much care for Bibi, and Trump is not part of the club. So I doubt very much they trust them enough to say..

    'the CIA/Mossad has just used some of their boys to perpetrate a chemical attack in Syria, that we're now going to use as a pretext to bomb Syria. We must not allow Assad to continue with his claims on the Golan Heights, but we also must pretend the Golan is irrelevant, and this is all about creating stability in Syria, and saving the children'. Got it?

    Trump: yea, sure. I got it.

    Trump may eventually evolve into this kind of tool, but for now I suspect they consider him too much of a loose cannon, and so they only give him specific things to say and do.

    The people who actually do get solid info? John Bolton, and the rest of the ideologically pure neocons. The ones who're kosher enough to keep the secrets like 9/11 to the grave.

    Moslem-loving filth
     
    I appreciate your sentiments Dave, but I'd offer that there isn't anything 'Moslem-loving' about Blair or his stripe.

    The reason Muslims are overrunning many parts of England (and Sweden and Germany and France and elsewhere) isn't because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly. Rather the motivations for the massive migrations (of Muslims and Africans and S. Americans and everybody else they can get) into all Western nations are motivated by a pure, incomprehensibly Satanic hatred for the people of the West.

    They'd use Martians if that was all that was available in order to see England destroyed, and sent reeling into a nightmare, Orwellian dystopia.

    Orwell didn't conjure the 'inner party' out of thin air. He saw it up close and personal, during the nascent Soviet-imposed genocide and slavery that England and the ZUS doomed the people of Eastern Europe to suffer under.

    All the psychotic manifestations of Ingsog were all glaringly visible to George, during the wars, and especially following the "liberation" of Germany.

    What Solomon Morel did to his many victims, he didn't do out of revenge. They were innocent, often just children. He did what he did out of an expression of his pathologies; a need, an imperative to feel the pleasure it gave him to wield absolute power over others. As an end in itself. To not just make them suffer, but to make them know who was making them suffer. And then, compound their suffering.

    If Solomon were an aberration, and was prosecuted for what everyone knew he did, then that would imply a proscription upon his brand of ethnic sadism and cruelty. But he wasn't prosecuted, rather he was allowed sanctuary and coddled.

    This is telling. It isn't out of love for Muslims that they're demanding the West open its gates. Rather it's out of raw hatred. A kind of all-consuming hatred that I know (thankfully) I'll never comprehend.

    On the subject of Moslem affections having a lot to do, or being the driver of mass migrations, I agree that it seems like kind of over indulgently or something out of balance with other concerns like the well being of the countries etc.

    Just to update with a couple snippets:

    The reason…]
    …isn’t because the people doing it (the Blairs and Bushes) love Muslims. Hardly. Rather the motivations for the massive migrations …]
    …are motivated by a pure, incomprehensibly Satanic hatred for the people of the West.]
    Rather it’s out of raw hatred. A kind of all-consuming hatred that I know (thankfully) I’ll never comprehend.

    But doesn’t it occur that it might be less pathological a plan to simply disable the bulk of human population by systematic death by a thousand cuts, starting with dumbing down and disabling the middle level ”journeyman” everyday kind of bloke, and the culture that made modern mass society possible.

    Systemic depopulation, CULLING of the HUMANS!

    How would you go about it better than by a smooth moving ever advancing cinch on freedoms. pulling out the supports, pins, rugs beneath, RAMP it all DOWN, Bring it all Down!

    Novchok to the hindmost!

    Doesn’t have to be crazy either, it might be a clever plan to restore a ratio of Man to Nature more sustainable in future times of less abundant resources… or AIR SPACE!

    'Muslim affection' has nothing to do with it. Barbara Spectre and her ilk surely hate Muslims almost as much as they hate Westerners, only not as much.

    The reason they went apoplectic over Trump's talk of restricting Muslim immigration is because that bodes ill for their ultimate intention to flood all Western nations with non-Westerners. Not because they love Muslims. That's utter nonsense, as we see them destroying Muslim nations with wild abandon and Old Testament wrath.

    Perhaps (((General Clark))) said it best when he explained why they bombed Serbia on behalf of Muslim terrorists and drug / human traffickers; the KLA.

    There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th century idea and we are trying to transition into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multi-ethnic states. – Wesley Clark, Retired General who commanded Operation Allied Force in the Kosovo War

    could have taken the words right out of Barbara Spectre's mouth

    so they use Muslims when Muslims are available, like in Sweden and Germany. Or they use Mexicans when Mexicans (and Caribbeans and El Salvadorians, Hondurans, etc...) are what's available.

    Australia will see more and more Asians and Indians and Africans and will be introduced to getting it 'Leb style', even more often.

    what ever and whom ever is available to achieve the goal. And it's only for Western nations. (except in cases like Syria, where they've used an 'immigration policy' that is even more strident than in the West)

    You won't see them telling Japan to open its gates to hoards of non-Japanese. Likewise, Mexico will not be welcoming in millions of Hondurans or Guatemalans, unless they're on their way to whitey land.


    it might be a clever plan to restore a ratio of Man to Nature more sustainable in future times of less abundant resources
     
    this is the saddest, most tragic part of all

    because we humans are mindlessly over-populating the planet into a dead rock, where all other species are being driven out of their ancient habitats, to make room for billions more bipedal consumers / cannon fodder.

    White nations, if left to their own devises, would be reducing their sheer numbers, out of cultural and other realties. So in order to continue the madness of exponentially exploding the numbers of consumers, they're using non-Westerners, with birth rates more attuned to the stone age, than modern societies, and this is all calculated to turn the planet into a human farm, where all wildlife and nature are all driven out to make room for the most lucrative animals of all.

    It's a terrible, terrible sin.

    At one time the Sierra Club understood this, and opposed massive immigration of super-prolific Third Worlders, but then right away a (((fiend))) stepped in with a hundred million dollar bribe, and the whores at the Sierra Club capitulated for their bag of thirty shekels.

    Perhaps you have in mind a different Savile.

    The "sir" Savile -- a vicious heartless pedophile and friend to many influential Brits -- was indeed the Establishment: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Savile
    Here are the facts:
    "Savile was made a life member of the British Gypsy Council in 1975, becoming the first "outsider" to be made a member. ...
    Savile became a friend of Margaret Thatcher... He reportedly spent eleven consecutive New Year's Eves at Chequers with Thatcher and her family… Letters released in December 2012 by the National Archives under the thirty-year rule confirm the close friendship between Savile and Thatcher.
    In 1984, he was accepted as a member of the Athenaeum, a gentlemen's club in London's Pall Mall, after being proposed by Cardinal Basil Hume.
    Savile met Prince Charles through mutual charity interests, and Charles reportedly sent him gifts on his 80th birthday and a note reading: "Nobody will ever know what you have done for this country, Jimmy. This is to go some way in thanking you for that."
    In the 1972 New Year Honours, Savile was appointed Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, entitled to append "OBE" to his signature.
    In the 1990 Queen's Birthday Honours he was made a Knight Bachelor "for charitable services", entitled to use the honorific prefix "Sir". Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher had made four attempts to have him knighted before succeeding in her final year in office.
    Savile was honoured with a Papal knighthood by being made a Knight Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of Saint Gregory the Great (KCSG) by Pope John Paul II in 1990.
    -- There were more awards and prestigious memberships.

    It was widely known that Savile was a vicious pedophile. Similar to Blair, Savile had been protected by his powerful friends.

    "Immediately after Savile's death, the BBC's Newsnight programme began an investigation into reports that he was a sexual abuser. ... Newsnight also discovered that Surrey Police had investigated allegations of abuse against Savile. ... There was no public mention of the Newsnight investigation into Savile at the time ... there had been a cover-up by the BBC. ...
    By 19 October 2012, police were pursuing 400 lines of inquiry based on testimony from 200 witnesses via 14 police forces across the UK."

    "It is now known that Jimmy Savile sexually abused hundreds of children and women at the height of his fame. Investigators believe the late Top of the Pops host preyed on around 500 vulnerable victims as young as two years old at institutions including the BBC's broadcasting studios, 14 hospitals and 20 children's hospitals across England." https://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/jun/26/jimmy-savile-sexual-abuse-timeline

    I certainly wasn’t aware that the connections the social climbing creep had made were so extensive but I might still quibble about his being part of the Establishment or observe that the word or concept doesn’t remain a very useful tool for understanding and anslysis of politics, power and influence if you are going to count him as any more than a fringedwelling hanger on of the Establishment. Being someone who, as entertaining celebrity or old school friend of a Prime Minister, can rely on a secretary passing on your message or letter does’nt make you a person of influence such as “Establishment” connotes. (It occurs to me to Google “what is the difference between the concept of a UK Establishment and the US Deep State”. Want to have a go at making the connection?).

    Mind you it is an interesting reflection on London clubs and their status that it was the Athenaeum that he joined. Membership is confined to those, now including women, who are “distinguished in the Arts, Sciences or Letters”. (When I asked a friend who was a member, though only a quite senior partner in a firm of City solicitors, about the gaitered bishops I had observed he said “Oh Letters I suppose!”). There would be and have been senior civil servants who were members but I doubt that Jimmy Savile had much time in their company.

    Well done using a search engine but I’m afraid your “sir Savile’ usage – repeated – disqualifies you from posing as having any reliable knowledge of the UK. Within the UK you might find a Lancashire labourer or Polish plumber who wouldn’t say “Sir James – or Sir Jimmy Savile” except that most would probably call him just “Jimmy Savile” or “that slimy bastard Savile”.

    One does not need to do an extensive Google search to find that Savile was OBE, Sir and that he was also a Papal Knight.
    My point was the dissolution of the concept of honor among the Establishment.
    Blair, Williamson, Johnson, May, Cameron, Straw et al are the Establishment -- and the criminal liars.
    Is Lord Arbuthnot the Establishment? -- Of course, he is. James is an important lobbyist for Israel and weapon manufacturers. His wife has become a celebrity by upholding an arrest warrant for Julian Assange. Want to compare the treatment of Blair with the treatment of Assange? -- The first is the UK Establishment, the second is an honest principled man.
    There was also Dr. Kelly.
    , @NoseytheDuke
    Annamarie doesn't have to pose nor prove to you or anyone else as to how knowledgable she is, her frequent comments establish quite clearly that she's far more knowledgable than your own comment history, or lack thereof, shows you to be. As for Sir Jim being Establishment or not, despite being from the lower classes, he was a procurer of little boys for former PM Ted Heath.

    how to spirit these two living & talking people away, who have returned from the dead,
     
    Rather doubt that Sergei and Yulia Skripal are still living and talking (as the UK government insists). If they were still alive, we would have seen breathless TV interviews, magazine stories about Yulia torn between East and West, perhaps by now even a romantic angle.

    Civilian medical researchers would line up to ask for blood and tissue samples, do batteries of medical tests etc. and and would rush out scientific papers about the mechanism and effects of the alleged poisoning.

    Instead, we hear of a bizarre alleged phone call between Yulia Skripal's cousin and her cousin Viktoria Skripal which Viktoria noted seemed "scripted" and was terminated abruptly.

    Most likely, both Sergei and Yulia were MURDERED by British intelligence services around the time of the "incident." Ironically, the strongest evidence for this theory lies in the fact that the UK continues to claim, without public verification, that both are still alive.

    BTW while we hear endless repetitions of the cool-sounding Russian term "Novichok," nobody seems keen to tell us WHICH specific compound in the "Novichok" group (known to the West since the 1980s) was allegedly used on Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

    I do not think it is impossible, that the MI6 & CIA are capable of hideous crimes, even of homicide. But up till now I interpret the declaration of the Salisbury hospital and of the head of Porton Down as unexpected and contrary to the MI6 & CIA policies. Also I notice a lack of cleverness all over the handling of this Skripal case by both the UK government and the secret services. This is going to backfire. Happily the new Cold War that these secret services wish to renew between East and West is not so easy to realize.

    I too noticed that and agree with you. Do not understand why the National Guard can only serve in a supportive, non-enforcement role on the border. Heck, every nation uses its military to guard its borders. We need to send our military to guard our border. It's really very simple--no one can enter the US unless they have been admitted legally.

    Another thing I don't understand is how these "sanctuary" cities can so blatantly flout federal law by sheltering illegals from ICE or any federal law enforcement agencies. If any city does so, the federal government should put them on notice that ALL federal funds will be cut off.

    Another person said the president must make the federal military presence permanent. One knows the Potemkin purpose of the whole exercise from the use of the National Guard in small numbers on a temporary basis with unclear mission. What is still bedrock policy is that any border official will serve a “welcome and process” function only. The word “repel” is forbidden in all discussion.

    In short, betrayal.

    the Senate is the eager, resourceful, and indefatigable agent of interests as hostile to the American people as any invading army could be.”

    and to think that was over a hundred years ago

    they've only gotten better at it with time

    if you read The Protocols, one thing that I remember was the contemptuous way it referred to the goyim as having the minds and souls of beasts. Lumbering, mindless cattle, chewing their cud in a kind of catatonic stupor.

    what else can we conclude about the kind of people who would vote for Lindsey Graham or John McCain? These guys get reelected again and again.

    The saddest and most tragic thing about The Protocols is that the goyim seem to be as accommodating to the Elders as any farm animal can be. At least a pig might be apprehensive of the trip to the slaughter house. I remember a video where a pig jumped out of a moving truck, and walked off. But the goyim suit up their children and hand them over as cannon fodder, to be slaughtered on behalf of their enemies.

    In the last century, there may have been an excuse for not knowing the nature of the ZUS government, being as ((they)) controlled virtually every source of information.

    But today it's all out there. Today everybody knows that all of these wars are for Israel, at the direct expense of America's blood and treasure and (I won't say good) name.

    And yet, (especially from the Christian churches) the call to suit up the young people to die in more wars- slaughtering innocents - for our enemies, will resound in the nation.

    If I were a British soldier, told to kill some Russian soldier, because Putin is Hitler.. as my daughter languishes in a mental hospital, having been gang raped into a shell of a human being, and my son was brutalized by a British aristocrat, but now I'm called up to kill Russians in a contrived World War, to benefit the pedophile Peerage and their ((patrons)), I don't know how I'd resist pointing that weapon away from the Russian, and towards England's true enemies.

    Well said

    Our new minister of foreign affairs Halbe Zijlstra had to resign after having been a month or so in office, because a newspaper exposed his 2016 lies at a meeting of Rutte, nicknamed Pinochio, for his lies, party VVD, where he
