Much remains to be learned about the coronavirus, though it is quite possible that it will not be possible to determine how it developed if the various governments that might be involved prove to be uncooperative. The Chinese carefully controlled the information on the virus in its early stages, though they eventually adopted a complete lockdown to prevent its spread that seems to have been successful and might serve as a model for other nations to follow if they can overcome concerns about threats to civil liberties that evolve from placing too much power in the hands of corrupt and ignorant government officials.

Over two weeks ago, I suggested that the current form of corona might have possibly escaped from someone’s lab where a weaponized virus was being developed, most likely in China itself, though nations like the United States and Israel which are believed to have significant capabilities in biowarfare as well as a geopolitical motive to unleash the disease on certain countries should not be excluded. I still believe that assessment should be considered as viable particularly as the politicization process involving the virus is now fully in play.

China is now claiming that U.S. soldiers involved in the World Military Games held in Wuhan back in October might have deliberately planted the virus, while President Donald Trump and other Republicans in the U.S. are calling the disease the Wuhan or China virus, implying willful or careless behavior by the Chinese and a clear effort to demonize the Beijing government by exploiting the appearance of the virus as a wedge issue. And one might take note of the fact that the virus has particularly hit both China and Iran, countries that are on Washington’s enemy list, which generates additional conspiracy theories.

Donald Trump is not exactly a person overflowing with compassion. When corona virus began to emerge in the U.S. he called it a “hoax” and urged everyone to keep going to work even if ill, precisely the opposite of what was being recommended by most responsible medical authorities. He is now planning to throw $1200 dollars at each American resident whether they need it or not to undo the political damage, a proposal that will cost as much as $500 billion of money that the United States does not have and which it will have to either print or borrow. The money should be going to those who are now unemployed as a result of the virus, a point that surprisingly enough is being made by several Republican Senators.

Hundreds of billions more will go to the usual “victims,” banks and large corporations that will use the cash to pay off long terms loans and also to buyback their own stock and raise the value of their shares for investors. That is precisely what happened in 2008, with little to show for the average American.

One of the most truly despicable aspects of the coronavirus is how it is being exploited by Washington to punish countries like Iran and Venezuela, currently the enemy-designates of the inside the Beltway crowd. It would be possible to describe the Trump Administration policy towards both nations as sadistic apart from the fact that the behavior of the president and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo might actually shock the Marquis de Sade.

Venezuela has been denied a $5 billion International Monetary Fund loan to combat the virus based on the seemingly irrelevant and politically motivated argument that it is not clear who represents the legitimate government in the country, whether it is Nicola Maduro, the president, or Juan Guaido, the aspirant to the position of head of state being promoted by Washington. The White House has also declared a “maximum pressure March” directed against the Venezuelan economy, with the health care sector particularly targeted. So, Venezuelans will die and Maduro will undoubtedly continue to run the government, making the position of the Trump Administration demanding regime change both toxic and pointless.

Iran is also seeking a $5 billion IMF emergency loan to cope with the crisis, a request that will almost certainly also be torpedoed by the Trump Administration. Last Thursday Pompeo doubled down on Iran, initiating new sanctions based on the evidence-free allegation that Tehran is behind the recent attacks on U.S. military bases in Iraq. He also confirmed that, as part of the “maximum pressure” policy, all existing sanctions will remain in place, saying “Our sanctions will deprive the regime of critical income from its petrochemical industry and further Iran’s economic and diplomatic isolation. The United States will continue to fully enforce our sanctions.”

The fact that the Iraqi government and parliament have asked the Americans to close their bases in the country while the U.S. is highly unpopular due to its killing of Iraqi militiamen and soldiers seems to have escaped Pompeo as possible causes of the series of missile strikes. Pompeo also seems oblivious to the fact that remnants of ISIS are active in the areas where the bases are located and have proven quite capable of firing missiles from improvised pick-up truck launchers.

Last week Iran confirmed that it had experienced 988 deaths from the coronavirus and the infected number in the tens of thousands, but many believe that testing has been inadequate and the government may be understating the number of cases for political reasons. Pompeo has repeatedly insisted that Iran will be allowed to buy necessary medicines from abroad, but the U.S-imposed currency exchange restrictions on the activity of the national bank as well as of the country’s remaining commercial banks means that there is no mechanism to pay for the drugs and medical supplies so the country is combating the epidemic without many badly needed pharmaceuticals.

Even some congressmen have noticed that there is something fundamentally evil about the U.S. policy. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren sent a letter to Pompeo and Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin that included “I am concerned about the vulnerability of the Iranian people to the coronavirus and the potential for Iran’s coronavirus cases to worsen the spread of the disease to neighboring countries, including regional allies, and to the rest of the world. Therefore, I seek an assurance that every reasonable effort is being made by the United States to ensure the availability of medicine and other non-sanctionable humanitarian items to the Iranian people to help prevent the further spread of the coronavirus.”

Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted “Iran is facing a catastrophic toll from the coronavirus pandemic. U.S. sanctions should not be contributing to this humanitarian disaster. As a caring nation, we must lift any sanctions hurting Iran’s ability to address this crisis, including financial sanctions.”

Iran’s government is admittedly unpopular due to the mishandling of the shoot-down of the Ukrainian airliner and the inability to cope with a deepening economic crisis caused largely by the U.S. imposed sanctions. Given the current signs of weakness and instability in Tehran, there was recently a meeting in the White House discussing whether the U.S. should take the opportunity to attack Iran. It was, fortunately, rejected by a narrow margin when the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff strongly opposed the proposal.

Meanwhile the usual Iranophobes in Washington at the Israeli-linked Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) have seen an opportunity to tighten the screws a bit more and hopefully bring down the Iranian leadership through economic warfare. Their support for increasing sanctions on Iran is a policy designed to inflict the maximum pain on the Iranian people so they will rise up seeking to destroy their government. If that were to occur it would mean a civil war, but the folks at FDD would be hard pressed to even acknowledge the blood on their hands.

Ironically, if the United States were to make a serious effort to actually help the Iranian people by suspending sanctions and helping to expedite medical assistance it might actually produce a genuine thaw in a relationship that has been unnecessarily locked into 1979 and the embassy hostage crisis. Waging war on innocent people should not in any event be what the United States of America is all about. A shift in policies that actually demonstrates that Washington might be interested in saving lives rather than destroying them would be welcomed by most of the world and also by many Americans.

  6. During the World War II, Iran was occupied by some 30,000 American troops. Americans filled key positions in Iran’s government, so the nation functioned as a colony of the American empire. After the war ended, most American troops were withdrawn, but thousands of soldiers and civilians remained to advise the Iranian government, military, and police to support the dictator they had installed. That puppet dictator was ousted in 1978 and the American empire has attempted to destroy an independent Iran ever since.

    The future model is simple: As soon as another coronavirus outbreak occurs in China, all other countries immediately cease all flights into China, block all Chinese airliners from landing on their soil, block all travelers who’ve been in China in the past 14 days from coming in, including all former citizens of China who’ve taken up citizenship elsewhere. Native US citizens can only return after they’ve been quarantined for 14 days on the island of Diego Garcia and have tested negative for the virus for 7 days.

    Ziocons led by puppets-in-chief Pompeo and Pence are seriously some of the most despicable, evil people. What they are doing to Iran and Venezuela during this crisis is beyond evil. In fact, it is this evilness that led me to believe they very well might have planted the virus.

    Lot,

    Ignore the known TROLL, Phoney Ploni Baloni, all he does is lie.

    The vicious sociopath Khameni is depriving his people of medicine so he can pursue nuclear weapons (1)

    The report showed Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium now stands at more than five times the limit fixed under the accord.

    It said that as of February 19, 2020 the Iranian stockpile stood at the equivalent of 1,510 kilogrammes, as opposed to the 300 kg limit set under the agreement.

    What is even more important… But not stated… Iran’s declared capabilities, as a matter of objective fact, are scientifically incapable of that rate of enrichment. Thus, the IAEA has produced incontrovertible and objective the proof that degenerate Khameni violated the JCPOA accords before Trump withdrew U.S. participation.

    Instead of blaming to foreign powers, all rational thinkers understand & admit the TRUTH. Sociopath Khamei is willing to let hundreds of thousands of Iranians die to boost his already inflated megalomaniac ego.

    At the rate WUHAN-19 is purifying Iranians, maybe they will get lucky and all of the current and potential Ayatollahs will die. The 40+ years of brutal Socialist oppression of the Iranian people started with an irredeemable sin (holding innocent civilians hostage). Perhaps the true God, enemy of the SatanoAllah, is offering the path to contrition and absolution that will let the Iranian people rejoin the community of civilized people. One must pray that this is so.

    @Just another serf

    This website has several articles posted on the home page that ask the question – Is the Coronavirus a bioweapon created by the USA and Israel and was it deliberately unleashed against China and Iran?

    I don’t have an answer to that question, but like Giraldi, my mind is wide open to the possibility that the answer could be affirmative.

    Israel has been trying to false flag or otherwise snooker the USA into launching a war on Iran from at least as far back as the Reagan Administration. Thus far, they have not succeeded in achieving that objective – so, perhaps they sat down with their 5th column of deep state rats inside the USA and decided that they could wreak havoc and orchestrate a ‘regime change’ inside Iran by using a bio-weapon? I don’t have the most recent count, but a week ago – I read where at least 23 high ranking Iranian politicians had died due to coronavirus. As the Church Lady (Dana Carvey) used to say on the old SNL TV show: “How Convenient!”.

    So, even if someone wanted to give Israel the benefit of the doubt – and try to dismiss the idea that they have their fingerprints all over this pandemic – the idea that the USA would deny access to critical drugs and medical supplies that are needed to combat this coronavirus pandemic – sure seems to me to add credence to the idea that it was a bio-weapon and it was deliberately unleashed and now the USA wants to prevent Iran from being able to combat it.

    Oh, one other point to make. I did read one article that claimed that Israel was offering some kind of medical assistance to Iran – but, the Iranian leadership declined due to their complete lack of trust in anything that Israel might provide them.

    I can’t blame Iran for that wise decision, because the Israelis have a well documented history of being deceitful, conniving, and treacherous.

    In fact British and Soviet troops occupied Iran, although US troops came later. A Kurdish statelet was established at Mahabad under Soviet sponsorship but was dissolved and its leaders executed after Red Army troops withdrew in 1946.
    The US largely took over from the British in Iran.
    I have not yet looked at the Youtube but that is clearly a Soviet soldier on the right in the thumbnail, wearing the uniform collar tabs in force until early 1943.

  21. As a caring nation,

    That’s hysterically funny – can we call Trump Agent Orange now.

  22. @A123

    “The vicious sociopath Khameni is depriving his people of medicine so he can pursue nuclear weapons (1)”
    So, we assert there is a tight linkage, indeed a causal relationship between producing nuclear materials & insufficient medicine. Why ? Why causally link those two ?
    Where’s the proof ?
    The UN, everyone
    knows that Iran produces (none military) low grade nuclear materials, well below weopnisable grades. Everyone also knows that US sanctions have rendered it impossible for Iran to export its excess (ie amounts over those allowed by the Treaty).
    Everyone also knows that US sanctions make it difficult for Iran to buy or sell anything internationally.
    So your nuclear program = lack of medicine is far from the best explanation.

    “In neither case did this justify waging a war of aggression against them.”

    I despise the Jewish occupation government of America as much as the next person, but your last comment reminds me of those Cultural Marxist talking points about how everything bad that happens in the world is due to the evil White Man and the poor natives were all pure and clean before we went along and corrupted them.

    I suppose on some level you are right. If there had been a level of White unity and different White nations had not been supplying these other countries with their tech to gain influence in the region, and had prevented non-Whites from studying at Western universities so the knowledge of Whites would stay with Whites, then these other countries would not have any medicine whatsoever nor would they have electricity and large food yields and everything else that leads to a higher standard of living and overpopulation. They would also not have anything more than primitive weapons, and their internal squabbles would be far less destructive.

    You can cry about America all you want, but the truth is that these Muslim nations are supposed to have a lot in common, yet when USrael throws a few shekels in one of their directions, they are fully willing to start killing their ‘fellow’ Muslims.

    One must also be reminded of the Barbary slave trade and the 700 year occupation of Southern Europe by the Saracen hordes. All people who have the might to do such things usually end up doing them.

    It is not in the US interest to let any more countries develop nuclear weapons, and that includes Iran. Realpolitik dictated actions and if that means squeezing Iran than so be it.

    It is rather funny, they petulantly chant ‘Death to America”, “America is the Satan” but when the going gets tough, it’s ‘why won’t America let us have IMF gibs”

While not a fan of Maduro and his government, failure to provide humanitarian aid because of political differences is a bridge too far for me; the same goes for Iran, although I don’t believe myself qualified to comment on their politics. Pettiness is never pretty and sadly it characterizes much of US politics and increasingly the society in general. One would hope a pandemic would be a karmic wake-up call, but…

  35. @Pat Kittle

    Just to clear up a misunderstanding, most of the ethnic enclaves in Europe that are Muslim in nature, have inhabitant sources from countries like Algeria, Morocco, Turkey and Pakistan. Countries which never had their land stolen by Israel.

    The point is, these “Arabs” would be in Western lands anyway with or without Israel. They are not fleeing from persecution but are coming for the generous benefits systems and much higher standard of living.

    Hypothetically speaking, if Israel and it’s Jews were to disappear right now, the Palestinians would get their land back but the other Arabs in Europe would stay and Whites would remain the object of hatred for them.

    It clarifies matters considerably when one realises Trump is, like his father before him, a Jew pretending in the interest of Jews to be a Christian. The Trumps were close to Robert Maxwell even before he hired Jeffrey Epstein in the reported employ of Mossad but actually to be a Judaic hierophant. Trump was associated with Epstein in the closest ways imaginable for decades. The most important clue is the the temple of Moloch.

    The True History Behind ‘The Plot Against America’
    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/true-history-behind-plot-against-america-180974365/

    If Jews were over-represented on the unemployment line or stuck in retail and factory labor jobs, there would be no end to their support for “America First” if they could see a direct connection between immigration and their inability to prosper. After the death of Soleimani, lying about Iraq, taking land and torturing Palestinians, Holodomor, Armenian genocide, Soviet gulags, and so much more, the Smithonian does not believe Jews are “war-agitators” even though they document this behavior in the Bible.

    All of this on top of scamming using hedge fund managers to Paul Singer to literally ship jobs to Israel. If we even suggest denying Israel money, they literally respond with their “right to exist”. By that same logic, their shipping jobs to Israel, blackmailing Congress for foreign aid money and keeping America as the leading debtor does not count as denying America’s “right to exist”. The only reason Jews have ever been successful is their exceptional use of double standards.

    Sorry, I think you have the wrong verb there after “America,” not “is” but “should be”

    That’s what sanctions and blockades always do. That’s what gives them their power. Even when there is not a pandemic.

    Sanctions are not war without hurting and killing. And the US just loves sanctions and blockades. Trump’s ugly gang have made them a full-time passionate hobby.

    I think it fair to compare their use to bombing urban areas or villages. Only the timeline of the hurt and deaths is different.

    Yes, the disease adds a new intensity, a new vivid awareness about how ruthless people like Trump, Pompeo & Co are, but we already knew that. through dozens of examples.

    And think back to the American-made holocaust in Vietnam. Good God, one long savage ritual of killing people for embracing the wrong political/economic creed.

    And the horrors of Iraq, still not over. And Syria. And Palestine. And…

    So, I disagree with the statement: “Waging war on innocent people should not in any event be what the United States of America is all about.”

    I very much wish it were otherwise, but the evidence of America’s postwar era – the time of the American Dream – very much suggests otherwise.

    It is not in the US interest to let any more countries develop nuclear weapons, and that includes Iran.

    Were you sleeping when Obama signed an agreement with Iran that was also signed by a few other countries including the EU? If you had read articles by Gareth Porter you would know more about this theme including the fact that Iran didn’t have any military nuclear program.

    Besides, it’s not in the interest of the US to act agressively. This might provoke Iran to develop nuclear weapons and show other powers like China and Russia that the US isn’t able to act rationally and in a fair way. This shows the world that there is no possibility of a world order based on legal rules that protects the rights of everyone.

    I’m not ready yet to accept the pandemic as an Israeli false flag. Tanking the US economy makes a regime change crusade in Iran less, not more likely. Indeed, the weakening of America’s capacity to fight puts Israel at greater risk, as well as the blowback from the disease in Israel, or the potential of a much broader war among big players that Israel, despite its influence and the financial string pulling by its enablers in the diaspora, can’t really control once the new bombs start flying. This isn’t the time for the Samson option, really. So unless someone shows me the equivalent of WTC7 with the pandemic, I’m not buying into the Mossad did it theory.

    Note how your response didn’t actually address my points regarding the identity of the Muslims in the West.

    Remember those gangs that raped tens of thousands of little White British girls? They were not poor Palestinians forced out by Israelis, but in reality Pakistanis.

    See all those Muslim areas in Sweden and Germany? Those are not Palestinians or even Syrian refugees, they are Moroccan, Turks and other Muslims from nations that are considered safe enough by millions of Whites to actually go on holiday there. Morocco and Turkey are big holiday estimations, Brits lobe the latter country.

    See those areas of Paris that look far worse than anything the “Nazis” could have done under their occupation? Yep, not Palestinians, but Algerians.

    And it is you pretending to be someone your are not, it is likely you are a Muslim trying to weasel your way into the White lead counter-Jew movement.

    The truth is the truth, the millions of Muslim would still be forcing their way into the West even if Israel did not exist, of course the Jewish NGOs support this invasion but the point it that the source of these migrants is not Palestine, even the “Syrian” refugees were mostly not Syrian and mostly economic in nature, the German government has admitted this much.

    PG is engaged in some heavy retconning and memory-holing. It hasn’t helped Iranians or Venezuelans and never will.

    Tempting as it may be, the two shouldn’t be conflated, except insofar as both government’s have been reliant on China and Russia.

    Venezuela turned to them to keep its socialist regime in power and the result has been anything but pretty. Besides precipitously falling living standards, China and Russia have looted the oil and gold rich nation via loans and ownership stakes in key industries, with the only success keeping the socialist dictatorship in power.

    Venezuela constitutes a rare instance of USG regime-change circumspection during the Bush and Obama years. Trump has brilliantly left China and Russia holding the bag. It isn’t difficult to figure out the eventual outcome, China and Russia will get pennies on the dollar in return for giving up their claims.

    Iran is similar in that it, too, has relied on China and Russia to resist the USG and its allies.

    Let’s just say that alternative is anything but appealing, as evidenced — though I’m the only one to have noticed — by both seeking large IMF loans. As I’ve explained multiple times previously — and really is just common sense — Chinese and Russian support has been opportunistic. It has never been and never will be a resistance blank check.

    It’s impossible to overstate how poorly the Iranian government has executed vis-à-vis the US since Trump took the oath. It’s alliance with Democrats culminated at the turn of the year in a plot to seize American personnel in a replay of the ’79-’80 Hostage Crisis that sunk Carter’s reelection.

Any leader of any nation that refuses to recognize that, or that raises as a defense the condition of the economy should be removed from the human race. The best thing that has come from the Virus thus far is just how far it may be able to bankrupt the scum that have been running the earth for so long..

    It’s true. Muslim immigrants which came recently aren’t all of them from Syria. But the other two main groups besides Syrians are from Iraq and from Afghanistan: countries which have been equally devastated by US-Israel wars. Many Africans are able to come to Europe through Libya, a country that was attacked t(h)anks to Bernard Henri Levy’s help. Another point which you don’t consider is that the capacity of Europe and the West to interact positively with Muslim countries generally has been much diminished because of our support of the small alien country in the ME. Much of the hostility of some people from those countries against Europeans (only some because most of them are probably happy to be in Europe) has to do with this support.

    What you say is very disingenuous. Obama was not generally criticised because he supposedly signed an illegal agreement as you say – although some Republicans were not really happy with the agreement and the fact that Congress didn’t aprove it. You know this is not the reason why Trump ended the treaty. The reason was the group of people that are his aides and which control him and the donors to his campaign. They demanded the end of the treaty as a payment for their support. I have just taken a look at some articles about the treaty and none of them seem to say that it might have been even technically illegal. Besides, there are enough people who still support the treaty. From the New York Times:

    Many Republicans fiercely objected to the deal, saying it was not tough enough, and in 2018, President Trump abandoned it and reinstated sanctions. But Iran kept up its end of the agreement until last month,

    Michael Bloomberg:
    I would re-enter the deal with no new preconditions.

  69. An indiscriminate policy that mainly affects a civilian population is condemned by most governments. Sanctions can have this effect. They are defended as an alternative to war: but in reality are often a precursor. What we are witnessing today is the build-up towards another world war; sanctions are part of the phenomenon: history is the pattern.

    It’s gone down the memory-hole that Germany offered twice to remove its forces and pay indemnifications for the damage if the Polish government would agree to respect the human rights of the German minority and return to the negotiating table, but, with Anglo-American encouragement, the aggressive Polish military dictatorship refused. They were so out of touch with reality that the Polish General Staff had prepared an invasion plan they thought would see their army, Europe’s fourth largest, in Berlin in four weeks. Germany’s ultimate plan after the war was to return the traditionally Polish lands to an autonomous Polish government, but why let facts get in the way of a good old fashioned hate?

    Waging war on innocent people should not in any event be what the United States of America is all about.

    That is what America does and has always done. When was it that things were any different?

    From personal experience, I can say that my experience of being an American, it wasn’t about waging war on innocent people.

    I was a child when America was engaged in Viet Nam.

    When I got to know what America was about, as a young adult, it was in the seventies, when Carter was pres. We weren’t bombing and waging war on innocent people anywhere that I knew of. It wasn’t part of the American experience, to destroy nations willy-nilly, and slaughter, maim and displace untold millions of innocent souls.

    We loved and made love and experimented with drugs and listened to music that seemed to be inspired from something ineffable in an exploding tsunami of human creativity.

    We built muscle cars and fabulous appliances and had a very successful agricultural sector that held out hope for a well-fed planet.

    The blacks and gays were into Motown and Disco respectively, with overlap from the white suburbs to the rural areas with our Rock and Roll and Country music.

    It was a magical time, and I very much lament its passing, but to be an American, was to be filled with love and hope and idealistic images of a bright future. The idea of America running a permanent torture camp would have been impossible! An anathema to everything that it meant to be an American.

    We watched the Partridge family and All in the Family and the Jeffersons, and the Waltons and Welcome Back Carter and Roots and Sonny and Cher on the TV, and SNL with Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd (back when it was funny). Perhaps it was a vapid culture in parts, but it wasn’t murderous or genocidal. It was Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones. It was Donna Summer and The Eagles and Sly and the Family Stone and Hank Williams Jr.

    The idea of using drones to blow up weddings in Third World nations and Total Police State surveillance would have seemed more Twilight Zone, than the actual Twilight Zone, which we watched.

    So yea, we’ve come a long way from all of that.

    It’s true what they said, about a ‘new catalyzing event’, to destroy everything that America had come to mean, and create this dystopian zio-hell on earth of the (((America))) of today.

    Just one (young) boomers perspective of what America used to be, at least to (perhaps hopelessly naïve) me.

    “Less than perfect” is certainly a mild euphemism for murdering ethnic Germans whose crime was still living on land that was theirs before the WWI allies gave it to the Poles,

    So much for Wilson’s 14 Points, the basis for ending the shooting and alleged basis for the Treaty of Versailles. The land in question was occupied by Poland after the November 11, 1918 Armistice. Germany had already relinquished claims to Upper Silesia and other territories.
    We won’t mention that the Munich Agreement solved the problem of Poland’s invasion of Czechoslovakia, as well as the Hungarian claims to territory. Of course, mentioning that the Soviets were backing Benesh, and that David Irving discovered Benesh via the Czech government was funneling money to Churchill, is an absolute no-no.

The rabbis derived these from Deuteronomy 25:17–18, Exodus 17:14 and 1 Samuel 15:3. Rashi explains the third commandment:

    From man unto woman, from infant unto suckling, from ox unto sheep, so that the name of Amalek not be mentioned even with reference to an animal by saying “This animal belonged to Amalek”.

    Indeed. It is now possible both to check for the virus in those currently infected and check for antibodies in the serum of people previously infected. The US CDC should insist on testing the stored specimens and current antibodies of Americans who were ill with either “influenza-like illness” or “vaping” illness during the second half of 2019, in order to put to rest the rumors that the virus escaped from Ft Detrick or the UNC lab and was subsequently transmitted to Wuhan during the military games there in October, whether deliberately or accidentally.

    Reading comments before responding to them is a good advice. I wish you had followed it. I never claimed that the US is using specifically medical sanctions against Iran. The US is using general sanctions, i.e., it aims to harm Iran in every way possible, and does not really care which aspect of sanctions does most harm. It refused to lift its sanctions, period.

    In case you have not heard: UN secretary general called on all countries to roll back sanctions in the face of pandemic (https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/03/24/un-coronavirus-cuba-iran-venezuela-north-korea-zimbabwe-sanctions-pandemic/). He said that it’s time for “solidarity, not exclusions”. Naïve guy: Empire won’t ever do what decent countries are doing. Russia, China, and Cuba are helping Italy fight coronavirus.

    The SPREAD going on is only the SPREAD of the TEST now carried to the last corners of this planet.
    Airplanes all over the world now mainly carrying Masks, Toilet paper, protective cloth and covid-19 tests.

    If “they” would have started to test in an old people home,.. testing before someone dies ..oh wow…he / she is positive! So of course this person would be listed now as a Virus victim!

    If you look to Italy more then 90% of all the people who died (Covid-19 victims per definition by the mass hysteria media) are over 70 year old and had serious health preconditions. Most of them end up on a respiratory machine!

    Here is what a respiratory therapist mentioned:
    “Holy shit”
    “your risk of mortality increases every day that you spend on a ventilator. The high pressures from high vent settings is pushing air into the lung and can overinflate those little balloons. They can pop. It can destroy the alveoli. Even if you survive ARDS, although some damage can heal, it can also do long-lasting damage to the lungs. They can get filled up with scar tissue”.

    Imagine how many old people are already in hospitals with some serious problems or had an operation where a respiratory vent machine was used.
    Then the Doctors seem to have no idea anymore why those people are in the hospital and make a covid-19 test.
    If its positive they tell this poor people that: “you have a deadly virus in your lungs which creates acute respiratory problems”

    This is the most negative placebo you can give to someone!

    Those old people in the hospital might have already problems with breathing from no fresh air and from lack of movement.
    Such a diagnosis creates additional fear and panic to an already weak condition.

    In absence of any refined breathing technique which could master this situation they start to hyperventilate and after a while they cannot open their lungs anymore because of the overloaded static energy contration in the lung tissue.
    After that they get the respiratory vent machine treatment….with the above described problematic. Especially for old and prestressed people this is the end.

    Does this sound like a fight with a virus?
    DR. Owen Tsang in Hong Kong described the “scar tissue” found on patients who whent through this nightmare but survied, as pulmonary fibrosis.

    “Don’t get fooled by the mushroom lady’s (camouflaged as Bill Gates) who want to sell you a vaccine to create antibodies which you already have”

    So much for Wilson’s 14 Points, the basis for ending the shooting and alleged basis for the Treaty of Versailles.

    Kenneth Davis talked about his book, More Deadly than War: Hidden History of Spanish Flu and WWI at Pritzker Military Library about 2 years ago https://www.facebook.com/PritzkerMilitaryLibrary/videos/kenneth-davis-more-deadly-than-war-the-hidden-history-of-the-spanish-flu-and-the/10155883479969355/
    Pritzker Military is a project of https://www.unz.com/estriker/american-oligarchs-i-the-pritzkers-and-transgenderism/”&gt; Jennifer Pritzker.

    Among other things, Davis said Woodrow Wilson caught the flu, was quite sick but recovered, but — and he emphasized this — “he was never the same afterward; radically changed . . .”

    Spanish flu was transported from continent to continent by ships; FDR was a Navy man at the time and also caught the flu.

    Bernard Baruch was Wilson’s close companion at Versailles. No information about him catching flu, or any member of the very, very large Jewish zionist delegation at Versailles sent by American Jewish Congress or as members of Wilson’s team, or as part of Lloyd George’s party.

    Baruch was also a close advisor to FDR for the duration of WWII; FDR visited Baruch at the latter’s plantation in South Carolina: it’s where military historian Andrew Buchanan claims FDR planned Mark Clark’s one-man capture of Rome. — Allied forces capture of Rome had been extensively designed as a joint operation of British and Americans.

    US-Led Iran Sanctions Blocking Medical Treatment to Thousands of Infirm – News From

    are “increasingly hitting vulnerable medical patients as deliveries of medicine and raw materials for Iranian pharmaceutical companies are either stopped or delayed,” reports the Washington Post.
    “The effect,” the Post continues, “is being felt by cancer patients and those being treated for complex disorders such as hemophilia, multiple sclerosis and thalassemia, as well as transplant and kidney dialysis patients, none of whom can afford interruptions or delays in medical supplies.”
    The Iranian Hemophilia Society (IHS) came out last month to say “the lives of tens of thousands of children are being endangered by the lack of proper drugs caused by international economic sanctions,”

    It’s increasingly obvious that Washington’s aim is to harm the Iranian people. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has admitted they aren’t changing the policies of the regime, but has insisted on their continuance nevertheless. As one of the top supporters of sanctions, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), said, “Critics [of the sanctions] argued that these measures will hurt the Iranian people.  Quite frankly, we need to do just that.”

    How AIPAC-OFAC Are Working to Maintain Iran Sanctions
    by FRANKLIN LAMB
    http://www.counterpunch.com

    [MORE]

    AIPAC sent a letter to Congress right after the vote laying out a new anti-Iran front which includes Israeli agents, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy  (WINEP) and its “Counselor” Dennis Ross, and criticizing President Obama, as well as urging him to transfer to Israel the “mountain-busting”  30,000 pound Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) for use against Iran when needed. The MOP is the world’s largest non-nuclear weapon and designed to destroy hardened targets, bunkers, and other locations deep underground. The MOP hits the ground at supersonic speed after being released from a B-2 bomber.
    Since Israel also does not have the B-2, AIPAC is seeking pledges from its agents in Congress and from Presidential candidates that the new administration will provide both the bomb and the bomber. Five Republican candidates, including aides to Mike Huckabee and Senator Lindsay Graham, have assured AIPAC that they see “no problem” with Israel’s request.
    Also engaged in keeping the pressure on Iranians is Adam Szubin, AIPAC supporter and former director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), which enforces sanctions.  Mr. Szubin has recently been appointed the U.S. Treasury’s acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence. He has made plain this past month that pressure on Iran will intensify and those who fantasize about doing business with the Islamic Republic, with or without sanctions, will face more hurdles. The latter includes, for example, barring from U.S. markets any foreign banks who knowingly or unknowingly engage in and transaction with any firm doing any business with Khatam al-Anbia (the Iranian construction company owned by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, or IRGC).
    OFAC and AIPAC have publicly pledged to combat “all of Iran’s other malign activities outside the agreement.”  “They will find themselves back on the list, and the Iranians I believe understand that,” Szubin stated this past week.
    He added, “We do not take the release of one dollar of sanctions lightly. We are committed to countering Iran’s ongoing illicit conduct and will aggressively enforce sanctions that target Iran’s support for terrorist groups, its abuses of human rights or its destabilizing activities in the region. That is why we are intensifying our work alongside Israel to continue to disrupt the front companies, intermediaries and money launderers that enable terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and Iran’s IRGC Qods Force.”

    Religion of AIPAC or the illegal occupants of Palestine is same . They want people fight among themselves . They have been doing it for centuries to eke out a good living for themselves .

    Will you be surprised if the future illegal incestous spawns of AIPAC now living in another country blames America for strangling Iran in order to maintain the hatred so that these clones of the evil can have foods on the tables without earning it honestly ?

    Not exactly. During WW2 Stalin and Churchill agreed to divide Iran between the UK or British Empire and Russia. The Shah, parliament and leadership of Iran objected.

    So the Shah was hurried into exile and his son was installed as Shah with a sister as chief advisor. After the war the USA ordered the English to withdraw. The UK lost it’s empire to the American merchant business Empire The Russians occupied Azbergian 1/4 of Iranian territory and refused to withdraw until 1955.

    There was never any American military occupation of Iran. By 1950 America sent many Drs, teachers and other do gooders to Iran just as we sent all those do gooders to Africa and other third world nations. Of course these do gooders were fronts for the informal capitalist colonialism that replaced the official British Empire.

    And once and for all, Mossadegh was not a democratically elected prime minister. He was a democratically elected member of parliament from one parliamentary district.

    After the election; in accordance with the existing constitution and ancient Persian custom; the Shah selected a member of parliament as an at will appointed prime minister.

    In accordance with the existing constitution and ancient custom, the prime minister was an at will appointee, hired by the Shah and fired by the shah for any reason.

    You people are like the Jews from 1917 to a few years ago. The Jews proclaimed America always bad, soviet Russia and communist China and Cuba always good.

    Unz proclaims America always bad America’s opponents always virtuous and good. Just like the Jews of the world did 1917 to 1990 re: USA vs communist Russia China and Cuba

    “There is no real purebred Amalek today since, according to the Talmud, King Sennacherib mixed up the nations,” Rabbi Winston told Breaking Israel News. “This means that we cannot point at any one nation and say that they are Amalek. It also means that Amalek has gotten mixed into the other nations and a little bit of Amalek is in everyone.”

    Amalek is the grand-son of Esau, the ancestor of the Edomites, therefore the Amalekites are close relatives of the Edomites who eventually absorbed them.
    “[the Hasmonean High Priest] Hyrcanus took also Dora and Marissa, cities of Idumaea, and subdued all the Idumaeans; and permitted them to stay in that country, if they would circumcise their genitals, and make use of the laws of the Jews; and they were so desirous of living in the country of their forefathers, that they submitted to the use of circumcision, and of the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time therefore this befell them, that they were hereafter no other than Jews”.

    “The House Office of Inspector General tracked the Awans network usage and found that a massive amount of data was flowing from the (congressional) networks,” said Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa. “Over 5,700 logins by the five Awan associates were discovered on a single server within the House, the server of the Democratic Caucus Chairman, then Rep. Xavier Becerra of California. Up to 40 or more members of Congress had all of their data moved out their office servers and onto the Becerra server without their knowledge or consent.”

    Becerra left Congress in January 2017. Before he left, Capitol Police wanted a copy of the caucus server’s contents.

    Becerra presumably told Imran Awan that Capitol Police wanted a copy of the server. What is known is that Awan did produce a copy of a server’s data for Capitol Police; however, after taking a look at the data they were provided, Capitol Police determined they were given a copy of data from some other server instead.

    Imran Awan was also going back to Pakistan for long stays and, in fact, at times worked remotely from Pakistan. This is where the case leads to possible espionage.

    Meanwhile, court hearings on the alleged bank fraud Imran Awan and Hina Alvi have been charged with have been delayed again and again. The last hearing took place in October 2017.

    And I remind you of the vast effort the US undergoing in the US, which aint cheap.

    Tell me more about it, like I don’t see it with my own eyes. First things the universities did was what? They sent their undergraduate and graduate students home. If there was any hotspot of infection anywhere locally, it’s now spread all over the country. But epidemiology (and the country) be damned, this was done to protect universities from possible lawsuits. The country isn’t going to sue them, but relatives of individual students might.

    Then the authorities, instead of following the example of those who cope successfully, like China, South Korea, or Russia, followed the example of European liberals who made a perfect mess of it, turning minor epidemics into a disaster. Instead of following the chain of infection and isolating those who could be infected, they closed all businesses indiscriminately, but left food and drug stores open, as if the virus cannot be transmitted in those places.

    They closed labs and forced scientists to stay home, and then started complaining about the lack of sufficient numbers of tests. Tell you a secret: fewer than a hundred semi-qualified post-docs could have purified enough reverse transcriptase (it’s an RNA virus, you need it) and designed several pairs of oligonucleotides for a few hundred million PCR tests. This is the only test that detects the virus regardless of symptoms or antibodies in the blood of an infected person. What’s more, it gives you an answer within a few hours. But there is no way the government, federal or local, would do anything sensible. That would be wrong, as those pesky dictators do it. So we are guaranteed Italy-stile disaster. It’s gonna cost a lot, sure. Stupidity is extremely expensive.

    From personal experience, I can say that my experience of being an American, it wasn’t about waging war on innocent people.

    Tell that to the hundreds of thousands of american indians that perished at the hands of the greedy white men. They stole their land, stole their gold, killed their liveleyhood and many just killed them for fun. And we called them savages. If we won, we called it a great victory but if the indians won (Little Big Horn) history books called it “the great Sioux massacre.”

    Fortunately, I am old enough to remember the carpet bombing of Vietnam and killing of innocent Vietnamese. We were killing them in their own country yet they were the bad people because they were fighting back.

    Now the boogey man is a Muslim or Islam. Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Lebanon, and Yemen; none of these countries attacked the US, but we are waging various kinds of wars against them, killing their leaders, starving and bombing the children, laughing at the carnage or declaring that killing of 500,000 Iraqi children worth it (US Secretary of State Madeline Albright). We are helping the Saudis in the senseless war in Yemen just so Muhammad Bin Salman can satisfy his murderous appetite, killing and starving thousands of innocent children, spreading the Cholera thus causing more deaths. Even if I accept the official account of 9/11, none of these countries were involved in it. Those who were involved, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, are enjoying our friendship. We are giving them weapons and financial aid. Some of these countires are so poor, even if they wanted to, they could not attack the US.

    But for Israel, we have waged war on Islam and the Muslim world. Had the US told Israel to take a hike, today this world would have been a peaceful place. We, the mighty empire, take orders from Israel and Saudi Arabia and do their bidding, who sit and enjoy seeing the American blood being sopilt all over the world along with the innocent blood of the natives.

    We have lost all sense of human decency that we are denying countries the basic necessities that the innocent people need, such as food and medicine, even at the time of this latest catastrophe. This is how we make America Great, through sanctions and bombings.

    As far as letting Iran and Venezuela goes I am happy if they cop it.
    China rejected every offer of help from the US.
    My readings early on confirmed that Canada sent the virus to the Wuhan Lab.
    China has a class of citizens called USELESS EATERS, and since viral weapons can be designed to target ages and sex this outbreak lines up with their stated problem of old unproductive people.
    In addition, the outbreak being coincidentally timed to match up with the Chinese New Year and signing of the trade agreement are a few too many coincidences to be ignored.
    Trump is not the problem with this viral outbreak much of the problem are the Sinophile, such as the author of this post.

    It’s not the first crime against humanity committed by the Empire. It won’t be the last, unless the Empire is defanged and America becomes a normal country. There are enough normal people in the US for that to happen.

    Unfortunately there seem to be a lot of normal Americans who have been fully onboard with their government’s crimes. There seem to be a lot of normal Americans who just love war (as long as it’s war against countries that can’t fight back).

    Where’s the massive pushback by those normal Americans?

    Not for you, but for those who have a chance to understand. For a full RT-PCR-based kit to detect RNA virus one needs the following:

    1. Reagent to extract RNA from the sample w/o damaging it (the world is full of RNAses that degrade RNA, so this reagents must kill RNAse activity). Available from many companies, the production can be scaled up; if they transferred all production to China out of blind greed, it can be started here from scratch using no more than 0.1% of NIH resources.
    2. DNAse and RNAse feee water. Also available from many companies, can be produced in unlimited quantities by a few qualified people.
    3. Reverse transcriptase (to convert RNA into DNA). Available from many companies. There are numerous clones driving its production in E. coli, 5-10 people can purify enough recombinant enzyme for hundreds of millions of kits.
    4. DNA polymerase that survives high temperatures, such as Taq. Available from many companies. There are numerous clones driving its production in E. coli, 5-10 people can purify enough recombinant enzyme for hundreds of millions of kits.
    5. Deoxynucleotides. Available from many companies, the production can be scaled up; if they transferred all production to China out of blind greed, it can be started here from scratch using no more than 0.01% of NIH resources.
    6. DNAse and RNAses-free bovine serum albumin (to prevent enzymes sticking to test tubes). Available from many companies, the production can be scaled up; if they transferred all production to China out of blind greed, it can be started here from scratch using no more than 0.001% of NIH resources.
    7. Oligonucleotides corresponding to viral genome. Ideally a pair of oligos should PCR out 150-200 nucleotide fragment. It is smart to have 3-4 pairs, so that even if the virus mutates, most reactions would work. Can be designed by existing software (or half-qualified graduate student) and synthesized in huge quantities by many labs and companies.

    The lab needs thermocylers for PCR (available from many companies; one thermocycler can run ~100 reactions simultaneously. 35-40 cycles would take less than two hours; thermocyclers are pretty common, we have four in the lab) and be able to run agarose gels (2% agarose is best for 150-200 bp fragments) – are available in practically every biological lab; we have something like a dozen. Electrophoresis takes 20-25 min. You also need standards to run alongside samples to determine the size of the fragments. Standards are commercially available and can be produced in huge quantities.

    With these reagents and equipment the test would give the result within ~4 h (20 min extraction, up to 1 h RT step, 1.5-2 h PCR, 20-25 minutes electrophoresis, plus 10-15 min for loading samples. You can do this in any place that has electricity. First year graduate students (and many undergrads, in my experience) are qualified to do it.

    Thus, claimed paucity of tests means that the leadership is totally inept and cannot organize anything. Exposed or suspected exposed people should be tested more than once, so something like two hundred million tests would be enough for the country the size of the US.

    The US had mysterious clusters of vaping diseases since August. CT scans of victims show the same characteristics as COVID-19 victims. There was a lot of flu deaths and the CDC director admitted that posthumous examination confirmed that some victims actually died of COVID-19.

    SJWs have their own mental health issues. Among any group adopting extreme and fanatical political positions you’ll find a very large number of people with serious mental health issues. That’s true of SJWs and the far right.

    An interesting question is – are the mental issues that afflict so many on the far right and on the SJW side the same mental issues? On the far right there is an astonishing amount of paranoia and an even more astonishing propensity to believe conspiracy theories that are clearly nonsense (such as the conspiracy theory that the moon landings were faked). Which leads me to suspect that schizophrenics are particularly attracted to the far right/dissident right. In fact of course the far right/dissident right position is inherently paranoid.

    But now we’re all supposed to sob down on our knees and beg forgiveness to every butt-hurt Person of Color, because our ancestors didn’t end up under their ancestor’s axes.

    Bullshit.

    It’s because of your ((Frankfort School)) buddies sinister intentions of using white people’s better natures, to guilt them into submission, thereby winning the genetic wars after all, that I’d never allow a POC any where near my child as a teacher or other authoritarian figure.

And now all the polar bears and all the little animals in the lands and oceans are all going to die, because of you and your evil people, Debbie. Did you know that.

    rich scumfucks were sending poor boys (white and black) to kill and die. Just like they’re doing today. Of every race. Blacks kill blacks, whites kill whites. Muslims slice the heads off of other Muslims.

    But you’d turn it all into “evil whitey is racist and a murderer and those working class white boys from Ohio did it all!!! They’re racists!!! and they bombed Viet Nam!!!

    More bullshit.

    No one on this site is more against the contrived wars for the wealth and amusement of wealthy and powerful scumfucks than myself. (in case you haven’t noticed ; )

    But the only thing more vile and repulsive, than contrived wars, are the butt-hurt People of Color going around heaping hatred and guilt upon all white people because their white ancestors were better at the survival game than their non-white rivals. It’s something white people should all be proud of, not wallowing in guilt over.

    Now the boogey man is a Muslim or Islam.

    the rest is blah, blah, blah…

    The exact same points I’ve been making for years.

    There are enormous numbers of untreated schizophrenics wandering about. It is entirely reasonable to assume that many of them are to be found on the internet. It is entirely reasonable to assume that many of them are going to be attracted to sites where paranoia is the order of the day.

    A defining characteristic of schizophrenics is lack of insight. They truly and sincerely believe their delusions. No amount of rational argument makes the slightest difference to them. That’s what I see among a proportion of the commenters here.

    Normal Americans continue to think that voting constitutes pushback. Besides, pushback results in de-personing and possibly worse. People don’t want to be bothered that much.

    The de-personing is a recent thing. Throughout the second half of the 20h century, before de-personing became a thing, a very large proportion of Americans enthusiastically supported America’s imperial wars. Even the Vietnam War, that tragic ludicrous farce, was quite popular.

    It’s because Americans love moral crusades (the Puritan inheritance) and they see wars for Freedom and Democracy as moral crusades. Plus, sadly, a considerable proportion of the American population seems to genuinely enjoy the idea of fighting wars against people who can’t fight back.

    It is true that these days people who disagree with insane government policies do think that just voting is enough. Whatever you think of the 60s at least young people back then understood that voting doesn’t change anything.

    With no disrespect, I think you’re forgetting that as result of the Anglo-French, Sykes-Picot Agreement (1916) which effectively divided the Ottoman provinces into areas of British & French control, created a number of “Arab” nations pretty much as ‘dependencies’ after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

    Backstory: After the coup led by Mustafa Atatürk, Turkey sided with Germany resulting in Germany’s only WWI diplomatic success (encouraged by the Entente Cordiale). These nations: Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Jordan, Lebanon, etc, had the dominant family in each nation installed on thrones as ruling ‘puppet’ monarchies (indeed Saudi still is an absolute monarchy).

    Under such arrangements, these monarchies are obliged to:
    1. not oppose UK foreign policy (they can vote against in the UN General Assembly, i.e. nonbinding);
    2. buy French-UK-US armaments;
    3. rely on France-UK-US (F-UK-US) for defense if attacked (witness Iraq’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait & the F-UK-US counter-attack);
    4. invest revenue from oil exports in the US (called petrodollars, after the US went off the gold standard in 1971 under Pres. Nixon, as negotiated by (((Henry Kissinger))) in what was called ‘the deal of the century’).

    The important sequence of events to remember is that after Edward I issued England’s Edict of Expulsion (1290) for their practice of usury (loaning money at interest) and its overturning by Oliver Cromwell permitting their return in 1657, with William & Mary of Orange (Dutch Republic) ensconced on the throne, the Bank of England being established in 1694 & the Bank of Scotland a year later, and with the Act of Union (1707) the UK has pretty much had a Zio-occupied government (ZOG) from that time.

    This of course culminated in the 1917 Balfour Declaration handing over the British Mandate of Palestine to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for its transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain & Ireland – when only 50,000 people of that ethno-religion resided within the territory.

    Indeed, even the name “the United Kingdom” is biblical referring to the united kingdom of Israel and Judah – and the unofficial anthem of the UK being, believe it or not, the hymn ‘Jerusalem’.

    These days, of course, as the dominance of agricultural, and then, manufacturing capital has been overwhelmed by financial capital and wealth has been concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, the 1 sq. mile of bankers’ HQ’s – an entirely separate legal jurisdiction to the rest of the UK – the City of London, aka ‘The City’ is where the real decisions are made re: the Anglo-American empire of the ‘Five Eyes’ nations & the British Commonwealth of Nations (consisting of 54 member states) are made. It also explains why the gold reserves of 30+ nations are held in the vaults of the Bank of England.

    So my point is, while it appears on the surface that millions of Arab/Muslims live in lands not occupied by Israel, in fact many “Arab” peoples, are effectively controlled and influenced by F-UK-US, to varying degrees, by their ruling (monarchical) families.

    Hope this long-winded explanation helps.

  241. Communism’s is spreading, it seems to me. Talk of universal basic income. Soldiers arresting people who dare step out of their own home. Government surveillance of every move. Fed mediation of all markets. Movement toward all-digital currency for total economic control. Hospitals considering universal no-resuscitation. Church prohibited for good hygiene. Freedom of assembly outlawed for >2. Arbitrary state government repeal of Second Amendment.

    The state is rapidly assuming total control of individual lives. Freedom goes the way of the Brontosaur, who died of his own weight.

    From an old boomer’s perspective all that is true, and absolutely idyllic compared to the current demonic shithole we live in, but it wasn’t hard to see the seeds of its own destruction in the Carter era.

    Sex, drugs and rock-and-roll had been the currency of pop culture since the early ’70s (I know the official narrative would say since the mid ’60s, but the new hedonism really didn’t take hold of middle America until the ’70s). And boy did it take hold, led by ((the cultural influencers)). A couple of ’70s snapshots: The 1974 Academy Awards and the camera momentarily pans on Paul McCartney and ((his heiress wife Linda)). They are obviously stoned out of their minds, all but passed out. Flash forward three years, and watch the gays running wild in Studio 54, copulating in public, etc., encouraged by ((the club’s owners)).

    Every excess naturally meets with a corrective, and for millions of young people cast adrift in the ’70s into a psychological space of meaninglessness by the new hedonism the corrective came in the form of non-denominational evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity, into which the virus of Zionism had been creeping since the Scofield Bible had been published. The ambiguity of hedonistic freedom was replaced by black-and-white answers all spelled out.

    There to meet this burgeoning movement was a new political phenomenon called the neocons, erstwhile ((Trotskyites)) who said they had come to see the virtue of traditional values and conservatism. Seemed harmless enough in the ’70s, even encouraging, but soon these wolves in sheep’s clothing had grafted themselves onto Reaganism, sunk knives into the backs of paleocons such as Sobran, Buchanan, and Kirk, and eventually took over the Republican Party for Israel and endless war.

    By the late ’70s the drug of choice among those able to tolerate the psychological ambiguity of hedonism had become cocaine, which (I’m told) is all about being hyped up with feelings of super competence and mastery. This was a very different high from the hallucinogenics that cocaine replaced, which were supposed to be about mind expansion (see Electric Kool Aid Acid Test). My guess is that cocaine was a superb gateway drug into the nihilism and Satanism that dominate culture today.

    I could go on, but the point is that from the viewpoint especially of someone who remembered the ’50s and early ’60s, in the late ’70s things were very clear: ‘This can’t last, and what replaces it is liable not to be very pretty at all.’ It turned out to be worse than anyone could have imagined.

    Amalek is the grand-son of Esau, the ancestor of the Edomites, therefore the Amalekites are close relatives of the Edomites who eventually absorbed them.

    Yeah whatever. The historicity of this tale (or absence thereof) is entirely irrelevant to its significance in this context. What matters is the Tribe’s understanding of this narrative, and their use of it as a template for attacking their perceived enemies.

    “There is no real purebred Amalek today since, according to the Talmud, King Sennacherib mixed up the nations,” Rabbi Winston told Breaking Israel News. “This means blablabla…

    This is a prime example of what MOTs commonly refer to as “pilpul.” What does “pilpul” mean? Here’s a jewish“explanation”. More succinct, straightforward definitions can be found here and here.

    A couple of examples of rabbis spewing more direct expressions of genocidal hatred toward the Iranian people (same link):

    “Amalek didn’t just do random ‘evil’,” Rabbi Dayan told Breaking Israel News. “They came to stop the Jews from entering Israel. Anyone who does the same, who tries to stop the Jews from doing ‘God’s will’ [i.e. whatever they want to do], from settling Israel, is Amalek. This can be Jews or non-Jews. This is certainly countries and leaders like Iran.

    Rabbi Berger quoted Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki…. The other nations* followed and were burned but they didn’t want to look bad in front of the others now that Amalek had jumped in.”

    “We see this happening today. Iran is willing to destroy their economy, they are willing to destroy their own country, just to convince the other Arab nations* to attack Israel… Anyone who acts this way today is from the seed of Amalek.”

    .

    *Note that Berger is using the term “nation” in the correct sense of “a stable community of people formed on the basis of a common language, territory, history, ethnicity, or psychological make-up manifested in a common culture.”

    He does not mean “nation-state” or “country.” He (and Dayan) are not merely advocating for so-called “regime change,” but calling for the genocide — the utter eradication — of the Iranian/ Persian people.

    All of those wars are all being foisted upon whitey by Jewish supremacists. Duh, fucking duh.

    What have the people of Yemen done to the US? Why are we helping the Saudis kill and starve the people of the poorest country in the world? Similarly, what have the Palestinians done to the US. Yes, Israelis are doing the killing, but the US is just as complicit as Israel when they supply the advance weapons to them to kill sitting ducks like Gazans. Why does Israel need F-35 to kill them when they could just well do the damage with F-16s?

    What has Iran done to the US or Israel? Both Israel and the US do not want the people or country the kill or plunder to retaliate. Because just as soon as they do, they are labeled terrorist and open for killing. Iran’s only crime is to challenge Israel’s hegemony. Israel wants to be the most powerful country in the Middle East. How dare Iran challenge that?

    But because I point out that my youth was not full of hatred and wars, you get triggered by your eternal butt-hurt, and demand that I’m somehow guilty for genociding the Indians, and no doubt for black slavery, and gassing the Jews! And burning the planet to a crisp with my white racist 4×4 F150!

    You need to chill out. I have read your posts and I am sure you have read mine. We have agreed on most of the things. My response to your comments.

    From personal experience, I can say that my experience of being an American, it wasn’t about waging war on innocent people.

    You talked about your experience and I spoke of mine. There is nothing wrong if we disagree some time. But you had that guilty conscious and you erupted. My point was that the US has a history of violence and violating the human rights of other people. I can’t help it if the majority of the US population is white but perhaps not for too long.

    Take your triggered, anti-white racist butt-hurt and stuff it where the sun don’t shine, OK?

    This comment proves that I hit the bull’s eye.

    Again take my advice and chill out. Stay home and be safe, because if your hate doesn’t kill you, the coronavirus will.

    Communism’s is spreading, it seems to me. Talk of universal basic income. Soldiers arresting people who dare step out of their own home. Government surveillance of every move.

    That’s not what’s happening. What we’re seeing is the steady growth of right-wing totalitarianism. The state exists solely in order to serve the corporate sector. The purpose of a universal basic income is to make the corporate sector richer by giving consumers more money.

    It’s much closer to fascism than it is to communism. Globalism is essentially internationalist fascism.

    What is happening bears zero relationship to communism. Or even to actual socialism.

    Excerpt from, Donald Trump sexual misconduct allegations:

    Donald Trump, an American businessman and current president of the United States, has been accused of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment, including non-consensual kissing or groping, by at least 23 women since the 1980s. The accusations have resulted in three much reported instances of litigation

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump_sexual_misconduct_allegations

    That short clip I previously posted was taken from a 2-part video series created by Johnny Gat.

    Here’s Gat’s concluding remarks at the end of Part 2:

    In these two videos, I’ve shown you 9 cases of Trump’s ties to pedophilia. Both Trump and Bill Clinton are compromised pedophiles…

    Trump’s Pedophiles 1



    A couple of quotes from Part 1:

    “Epstein’s phone directory from his computer contains 14 phone numbers for Donald Trump, including emergency numbers, car numbers, and numbers to Trump’s security guard and houseman,” the affidavit reportedly claims…

    In the affidavit filed in support of case, Mr Edwards claims that Mark Epstein (Jeffrey’s brother) testified that Mr Trump flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s plane with him, LegalNewz.com reported.

    Flash forward three years, and watch the gays running wild in Studio 54, copulating in public, etc., encouraged by ((the club’s owners)).

    Hello gsjackson,

    Life often takes me away from these conversations for a few days, and too often I don’t have adequate time when I return to properly respond, because in God’s cruelty, He didn’t make me a trust fund child. And I have to slave away at the grind stone.

    I say all of that because the issue you’re talking about is a significant one, both culturally and even existentially, (considering ((their))) end game is our extermination ; )

    But in the Seventies, who knew?

    In fact, I was recently talking to a smart fellow (older boomer, attorney and college professor), and I said that not one in a thousand Americans had any idea why America imposed a 55 mph speed limit in the seventies. He said ‘oil embargo’, ok, ‘but why did we have an oil embargo?

    Deer in the headlights.

    Because of Nixon’s secret military assistance to Israel during the Yom Kippur war.

    ‘Oh, I never thought of that’

    Well, consider yourself like 99.9% of the population, because it was officially kept a secret.

    If you just read this (long) Wiki article, without following the links, it doesn’t say one word about the reason for the gasoline crunch.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Maximum_Speed_Law

    This is supposed to be our collective online encyclopedia where people can go to get educated, but as with every issue related to our ((slavery)), it too is completely censored of any content that might be considered inconvenient to the tribe.

    Already I’ve run out of time. But there is a lot about the seventies and the cultural phenomena and how it all developed and what it’s consequences are, that might be worth examining.

    For me, personally, those days, even with the challenges, were (as I said) a magical time.

    I’ll respond a bit more when I get a little bit more time..

    Given the alternatives, Trump any day.

    I almost never agree with you, but here you are likely right: among mainstream politicians, Trump is better than the others. It does not mean that he is not a criminal, they all are, but he is the least dangerous criminal among Rep and Dem big shots.

    In 2016 Trump made history by defeating the first clinically insane presidential candidate in the US history. In 2020 he might make history by defeating the first clinically senile presidential candidate in the US history.

    Mind you, the fact that Trump is better than the alternatives reflects very badly on the US political system: even the lesser of evils is pretty bad. But it’s still the lesser of evils.

All agitations and demonstrations in these countries are CIA instigated. US goal is regime change in these countries. The press in the US is not free. The MSM does the government’s bidding.

    You must be naive and dillusional to believe this. For one thing, the US is short of medical supplies including Masks and ventilators. How can they offer them to Iran? Furthermore, even a casual reading of the sanction regime will tell you that this is for public consumption.

    Every excess naturally meets with a corrective, and for millions of young people cast adrift in the ’70s into a psychological space of meaninglessness by the new hedonism the corrective came in the form of non-denominational evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity, into which the virus of Zionism had been creeping since the Scofield Bible had been published. The ambiguity of hedonistic freedom was replaced by black-and-white answers all spelled out.

    I think that’s a bit of a leap there, but you might be on to something.

    I can only really speak for myself, and while I did embrace the freedoms (and the music and experimentation and ‘free love’ and wonderful cars [at least what I could afford], and the general feelings of mutual affection and ‘love’, that was so prevalent), I certainly didn’t become more susceptible to ‘evangelical, fundamentalists’ anything. Quite the opposite, in fact.

    But I can only speak for myself.

    There to meet this burgeoning movement was a new political phenomenon called the neocons, erstwhile ((Trotskyites)) who said they had come to see the virtue of traditional values and conservatism. Seemed harmless enough in the ’70s, even encouraging, but soon these wolves in sheep’s clothing had grafted themselves onto Reaganism, sunk knives into the backs of paleocons such as Sobran, Buchanan, and Kirk, and eventually took over the Republican Party for Israel and endless war.

    There can be no doubt that their machinations were involved. It was like they threw a switch, and boom, all the inspired music was shut off, and we were given MTV, and music videos, and Van Halen (with an obnoxious tribal front man), to replace all the great seventies rock bands.

    We were also allowed some Rush (tribal – but great in the early years), and still fed a diet of Aerosmith (tribal), and Bruce Springsteen (cuck – literally), Sting (cuck), Madonna, (gutter skank) Queen, REM (fags), Judas Priest (fag), and KISS, Duran, Duran (fags), and all those ‘dude looks like a lady’ bands, like Motley Crew and Poison and the rest. (Metallica the outlier).

    Yes, they did a job on us, and with their ruse of the Seventies, it caught us all off guard, and we were unprepared as Sumner Murray Rothstein commandeered the popular culture and turned the music industry into a ‘celebrate diversity, Globohomo fag fest.

    >>sigh<<

    By the late ’70s the drug of choice among those able to tolerate the psychological ambiguity of hedonism had become cocaine, which (I’m told) is all about being hyped up with feelings of super competence and mastery

    Well, from my perspective, the drug of choice of the Seventies was definitely weed.

    But then again, like hitting a switch on the wall, in the Eighties it became undisputedly cocaine.

    My guess is that cocaine was a superb gateway drug into the nihilism and Satanism that dominate culture today.

    Perhaps so, gsjackson.

    An entire thread could be dedicated to the effects on our society of cocaine, (and of course crack). Much like the fentanyl and opioids are wreaking their death and havoc today.

    With ‘such a deal!’ Sackler, laughing all the way to the bank.

    I could go on, but the point is that from the viewpoint especially of someone who remembered the ’50s and early ’60s, in the late ’70s things were very clear: ‘This can’t last, and what replaces it is liable not to be very pretty at all.’ It turned out to be worse than anyone could have imagined.

    Just as what I’ve witnessed, is all going to end very, vary badly.

    We’re in full-blown Weimar mode now, with our governments (most state and certainly federal), and our cultural institutions and courts and banks and universities, all in their supremacist hands.

    The Seventies was, (for me), a blessed kind of lull in-between the (((contrived))) World Wars, and today’s Eternal Wars, (all for Israel). It was a unique time in history, when the creative juices of our people were allowed to burst forth, onto a music scene and lifestyles that embraced the very ideas of freedom, unleashed. With a repudiation of war.

    Who’d have thunk it possible.

    But it couldn’t last, and it didn’t last. And everything that you, (I was a teenager and young man), saw coming down the pike, has certainly came down the pike.

    Even if I still like to listen to the music from time to time.

    we didn’t even know we were supposed to be filled with hatred

    I grew up on a farm in rural America, which had as much to do with what the CIA was doing in South America, as it did with the man on the moon.

    I guess you could claim that my $200.oo rusted-out Pinto, and summers bailing hay, was only possible because of all that lucre the CIA was pumping into my local economy, as GM was closing factories right and left, and there were no jobs, (or money) to speak of.

    Nevertheless, working in shops for minimum wage, and coming out with your nostrils full of black gases and burnt steel, was a product of my having exploited all of South and Central America. And of course enslaved the blacks, and genocided the Indians, and gassed the Jews, and raped Mexico, and imposed Allende on Chile and bombed Germany, and basically, if you asked L.K. – it wasn’t the white man per se, who destroyed everyone’s lives and ruined the planet..

    Rather it was me! Rurik, the unapologetic white American male, who did it!

    And, by God! he will have his satisfaction!

    LOL

    The US, in the guise of the CIA, was at that time still very busy doing all the gruesome things, which it still does in both Central and South America.

    That America (and England, of course, and too many nations to name here), have been co-opted by the forces of evil, are not in dispute. No one is more adamant about that terrible fact than moi. Here on Unz.

    But the fact is when I was coming of age, there was none of that bullshit on the radar.

    I’m sorry, (not!)

    I just didn’t know how evil I was, for doing that to everybody.

    I was too busy tying to earn $3.00 to put in my Pinto’s gas tank to go see my girlfriend.

    I didn’t realize at the time that I was exploiting and bombing and killing and enslaving everyone on a global scale.

    Who knew I was the one who was responsible for all of that. I had to come to the Unz Review, in order for L.K. to scold me on all the things I’ve done to him, going back to WWI, and presumably, earlier.

    The US has been attempting to fuck the world up since it was invented,

    You’re just clearly full of hate.

    There never was any monolithic “US” ever. It was always a bastion of Amerindians and Irish and Germans and French and untold thousands of people coming from the tyrannies and corruption of Europe and elsewhere.

    The salient thing I see about the “invention” of the These United States, (before Lincoln’s treachery turned it into The United States), was the desire to kill or die, rather than be slaves of the British bankers of the day. And, the invention of the Bill of Rights, perhaps the epitome of mankind’s historical triumph over tyranny.

    That it has all gone to shit, wasn’t my doing. (regardless of what L.K. would say ; )

    It went to shit for the same reason England went to shit. Because of the venality and vanity of corrupt Gentiles, who would sell out their nations and their people for a few shekels more. Exactly like we see today in Canada, England, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, and on an on.

    But never mind, I did all of that as well, because I’m an unapologetic, straight, American male, and for some people, (butt-hurt losers of every stripe ; ) that is the worst crime of all.

    The US has its bases in 140 countries. They are not there to distribute sacks of flour and slabs of bacon but to occupy those lands and steal their resources, just like they did to the American Indians.

    Don’t you mean ‘like American white men (- just like YOU!) did to the American Indians?

    Here’s a clue, the American white man today has no enemy more committed to his destruction and genocide that the Jewish supremaicists of the world. The same Jewish supremaicists that are menacing and bombing and genociding the Arabs, (especially from places like Palestine).

    But you’re too stupid to see that those Arabs, and the American white man, have the EXACT SAME ENEMY.

    Why are we helping the Saudis kill and starve the people of the poorest country in the world?

    Here’s another clue.

    You’re just as guilty as I am, OK? Does that somehow compute in your mind?

    You need to chill out. I have read your posts and I am sure you have read mine. We have agreed on most of the things. My response to your comments.

    No, you need to chill out, because every word of your comment is the same idiotic idiocy that I had to endure last time.

    Basically everything I’ve been saying here for years, but written back to me as if it’s a scold, ‘why don’t you understand what the ZUS is doing in the Middle East is wrong?!

    It’s like yelling at Phil, and saying why don’t you understand that what America is doing in the Middle East is wrong?!

    It even seems schizophrenic, if you actually have been reading what I’ve been writing since day one. And then almost use my words verbatim, to lecture me on what’s wrong. It’s surreal.

    There is nothing wrong if we disagree some time. But you had that guilty conscious and you erupted.

    No, I have no guilty conscience. Because in spite of what so many imbeciles here on Unz want to jerk off to, I am only responsible for what I’ve done. Not what Obama did, not what Trump does, but me. And it burns some butt-hurt people’s psyches to have me point that out, because they’d rather heap their butt-hurt on someone convenient, and I refuse to be their whipping boy.

    Sorry bitches.

    I can’t help it if the majority of the US population is white but perhaps not for too long.

    yea, this is the game all along.

    This is why Muslims preferred war pig cackling Hillary, over peace rhetoric candidate Trump.

    “I think that’s a bit of a leap there.”

    Referring here to the ’70s migration into non-denominational, evangelical/fundamentalist churches — where’s the leap? Estimating it to be in the millions rather than hundreds of thousands, because I think the phenomenon is pretty well-documented? Some history-minded people think of the decade as the Fourth Great Awakening. Or speculating that the psychology in play had to do with people in retreat from rampant hedonism seeking structure, boundaries and clear answers? Some personalities — probably most — don’t handle freedom real well. Hence, our nation of sheeple.

    There were noteworthy cars in the ’70s? Well, if you say so. It escaped my attention, having come of age in the muscle car era of the mid-60s. Learned to drive on my father’s 445 cu 1965 Buick Gran Sport.

    By the way, did you know that the Fed was ended yesterday — merged with the Treasury Dept and now under the control of the executive branch? That’s what the Q people are saying anyway. Potentially the most significant event of this century and nobody else noticed? Somebody please say in an authoritative-sounding manner whether or not this is true.

    I suppose as is so often with me, I wonder at the machinations of the tribe, and how they put all those vapid, repulsive (and Zionist to the max!) evangelical TV preachers on their television screens, to saturate the spiritual soil of America with moral rot.

    There were noteworthy cars in the ’70s?

    some

    But you’re right, the apex of Detroit’s genius was 1969.

    Potentially the most significant event of this century and nobody else noticed?

    it’s been touched upon here at Unz, where I characterized it as a process of ‘streamlining’, since they’re only codifying into law what Woodrow Wilson did effectively over a hundred years ago.

    Things are going to get a lot worse, before they ever get better. And the getting better part is not going to happen in my lifetime. Only the ‘getting worse’ part.

    I believe Jerry Falwell founded the Moral(((?))) Majority in 1979, a key institutionalization of Evangelikill churches into politics and government. Once they got a taste ‘Murkan and world power, they broke bad like Walter White: “The danger?! I’m the danger!” No amount of blood and money could satisfy, especially when their warmongering was done in the name of Christ and Zion. A lyric from Bob Dylan’s new release fits this worldly corruption as it does the Kennedy assassination: ‘Son, The Age of the Antichrist has just only begun.’”

    The real virus of this age is not Corona. It is the intoxication of world militarization and control. Power is the deadliest seducer, more fatal than a hundred Jezebels. “The world is yours” read the globe over Scarface’s pool. For Christians to support the conquest of other nations in His name decade after decade—is it not like Tony’s burying his face in a mountain of cocaine? How many ki’s can one exchange for the peace of Christ and the sanctity of His name?

    Ah, yes. Good ‘ol Jerry and the Jet.

    Excerpt from, Christian Zionism:

    That year, 1978, Begin invited The Reverend Jerry Falwell for his first official visit to Israel, and the following year, 1979, his government gave Falwell a gift — a Lear Jet.

    Begin’s timing was perfect. He began working seriously with Christian Zionists at the precise moment that Christian fundamentalists in America were discovering their political voice.

    The same year that Falwell received his Lear Jet, 1979, he formed the Moral Majority, an organization that changed the political landscape in the United States. What was Falwell’s interest in Israel? He was a Dispensationalist. Dispensationalism is a system of theology that believes the Jews must return to Israel as part of God’s plan for Christ to return.

    “… why not the established Catholic church, or Baptists or Methodists…?”

    That’s an easy one. Don’t forget these are still children of the ’60s, and the established churches represented the tired old corporate hierarchy and showy materialism (grand cathedrals and such) that were widely rejected by the youth culture in the ’60s. Out went cathedrals, quotidian rituals, authoritarian preachers, organs and choirs, in came hip young pastors, guitars, personal testimony (remember the ’70s were the “me decade”), and services conducted “wherever two or more of us are gathered in His name,” to quote a popular lyric of the day.

    I don’t know what’s going on with the Fed. The claim is that Trump has intended all along to end it and no longer create the money supply as a debt to ((private bankers)). In other words, the Big Enchilada.

    BTW and FWIW, one person worth paying attention to (though capable of being spectacularly wrong, e.g., on 9/11) shares your view that the mid to late ’70s in the U.S. were halcyon days, a heyday of freedom, creativity and high living — Alex Cockburn. He came over from Merry Olde and never left. Loved roaming the American highways in those ’70s cars.

    I was a young child in the Sixties. But much of that culture lingered, and you’re right, paved the way for the Seventies.

    This one had a lot of scratches from use..

    But was the cultural revolution about a rejection of cathedrals, per se? Or the mentality of collectivism, with an entrenched, authoritarian (is there any other kind?) hierarchy, as you mention?

    And, I might mention, a hierarchy that had recently sent the flower of Europe and (and hundreds of thousands of America’s youth) to get slaughtered in the trenches, and then cities of Europe.

    If Christianity was the moral foundation of Europe, as French boys slaughtered German boys, who slaughtered British boys, etcetera… then of what use was it, other than as the perfect ‘herding’ tool of the existential enemy of Christendom?

    All of that was a consequence of following the hierarchy. Doing your duty, and obeying orders. Orders that came directly from the top of the hierarchy. Churchill’s hierarchy, and FDR’s hierarchies, among others. ‘Go over there and kill those people for the good of all. It is your duty’.

    And then of course there was the Viet Nam slaughter-fest, where tens of thousands of young American men and boys were being killed and maimed physically and spiritually. And sent back in body bags, or with their souls filled to the brim with despair.

    How many committed suicide. How many do today?

    And why? Because they’re taking their orders from the hierarchy. And doing the right thing. And as they’re passed on the streets of America, the lemingry will dutifully say ‘thank you for your service’.

    Would you did for that?

    Or, as an individual, with an individual’s conscience, would you tell the war pigs to ‘go to hell’ ?

    I’d like to think that if I were facing down the fiend, that I’d take it upon myself as to what to do. Not wait for some ‘superior’ to tell me what is my proper duty.

    Perhaps I’ve rejected organized religion as the fount of all spiritual truth, but that’s not all I’ve rejected. I’ve also rejected the so-called authority of the secular power-structure. The one that tells me they’ve sworn a sacred oath to uphold the Constitution, but for me as an American white man, it doesn’t apply to me, so get your white arse to the back of the line white boy’. POC are in line for that job.

    The covenant is broken. I have or feel zero fealty to the authority of my ‘superiors’, or any of the treasonous politician scum who wear the banner of America’s hierarchy leadership.

    I owe them, or this government only a firmly outstretched middle finger.

    So that’s what all the contrived wars for the fun and profit of wealthy war pig$, has done to this American. I haven’t’ got a scintilla of respect for our so-called hierarchy. Neither in the ZUS or Europe, where that same hierarchy has been used by Europe’s existential enemy, to get it to slaughter itself. Such a deal! Just, as I might add, the same existential enemy has co-0ped the Pope and the Vatican into its demonic schemes for their planned slow and depraved death of Christendom.

    I wonder if some of the bitterness and individuality of the Sixties and Seventies was not only justified, but way over due.

    If your son or grandson receives a draft notice because Christian-Mike Pence (now president), has declared war on Iran, what would you tell him to do? Take his orders like a good American and Christian, and go kill and die?

    Or, like they did in the Sixties, would you counsel your offspring to tell uncle Sam to fuck off?

    I know what I would do.

    Some of them are just hate-consumed losers, and you’re never going to make any headway with that lot.

    And other’s are (justifiably) steaming with rage for what America is doing all over the place.

    But in their anger, they (stupidly) lash out any anyone and anything American, even those who agree with them. ‘But you’re an American!! YOU need to make it all stop!!!

    as if these guys..

    can control, or are responsible for what these guys..

    do.

    It’s patently absurd, and even surreal, because everything that they say America is doing wrong, is exactly what I’ve been saying for years, and shouting to the heavens, and yet their attitude is ‘why do you keep doing it?!

    They’ve been programmed, as much as any Pavlovian dog, to see a white American man, and brainlessly associate him with Trump and the ((Eternal Wars)) and all the financial swindles of (((Wall Street))), and all the rest.

    I sometimes wonder if that’s why a lot of American white men feel they have to go to the trouble of publically soiling themselves at the mention of Donald Trump. As their way of ‘virtue signaling’ to the ‘woke’ crowd, that they too hate Trump!, (and the Deplorables who voted for him!).

    And this is supposed to be the posture of all white American men in good standing. We should all agree that violently attacking men who’re protesting the removal of Confederate monuments from their town squares, is not bigotry, because it’s those white men who’re the bigots!, and we should and all must hate them!, and attack them at every opportunity, no matter how peacefully they’re pretending to be.

    They’re white men, and they’re not bowed or cowed, so that means they’re evil! and they’re bigots and must be attacked!!!!

    Huh Arnold? (you pathetic, kosher-dick-sucking putz)

    But this is the posture they’d like us all to adopt. Kneejerk apologetic shame for genociding the Indians, and enslaving the blacks, and gassing the Jews, and persecuting gays and women…

    And now it’s time for comeuppance for all these white men have done so much to everyone!

    Isn’t it- butt-hurt people of color, and radical homosexuals, and feminists and Jewish supremacists, and their legions of butt-hurt ‘wokeness’.

    And I laugh at them, and piss in their faces.

    Not because I support Trump, (as no doubt their mindless Pavlovian programming insists), but rather because I’ve never done anything to harm anyone, least of all them. And anyone who says ‘that doesn’t matter!! You look like them!!! Can suck it.

  301. @Corrupt

    You appear to be confused. I am not Israeli, or even Jewish…

    If (((you))) are not an Israeli hasbara Jew troll, (((you))) are doing a superb impersonation of (((one))).

    No hasbara Jew troll has ever ever ever admitted being (((one))), certainly not in my extensive interactions with the lying (((vermin))).

    Typically hasbara Jew trolls (if not anonymous) assume goyish avatars & screen names, and pretend to support most any cause. (((They))) give (((themselves))) away by (((their knee-jerk opposition))) to criticism of Israel, Jews, and/or Zionism.

    And if (((you))) walk like a hasbara Jew troll, talk like (((one))), divert & distract like (((one))), & lie like (((one))), (((you))) will be treated like (((one))).

    The US has been attempting to fuck the world up since it was invented, but has been doing so on steroids ever since the end of World War 2

    Indeed there is nothing new to American imperialism.

    David Ray Griffin, who has written extensively about 9-11, states in his highly recommended book “The American Trajectory: Divine or Demonic?”

    American imperialism is often said to have begun in 1898, when Cuba and the Philippines were the main prizes.1
    What was new at this time, however, was only that America took control of countries beyond the North American continent.

    As John Bassett Moore, who had been an assistant secretary of state at that time, later wrote:
    “It is true that the expansion of 1898 involved . . . the taking of a step geographically in advance of any that had been taken before; but so far as concerns the acquisition of new territory we were merely following a habit which had characterized our entire national existence”.2

    This statement is of utmost importance, because it points out that, already in 1898, imperial conquest was a long-standing habit of American policy makers. America had been engaged in expansionism from the outset.

    Also, in regards to excuses US imperialism was/is more benevolent:

    The view of American imperialism as a benevolent enterprise devoted to the promotion of freedom, democracy, and human rights is strongly challenged by intellectuals of varying persuasions. Rejecting the portrait of a democracy-promoting American empire as a myth, they argue that the United States, like Rome and every other imperial power, has used its power to enrich and aggrandize itself, a goal that has often led it to rob, oppress, terrorize, and even slaughter other peoples.

    Or, as famous US crime fiction writer, James Ellroy, states in “American Tabloid”:

    “America was never innocent. We popped our cherry on the boat over and looked back with no regrets. You can’t ascribe our fall from grace to any single event or set of circumstances. You can’t lose what you lacked at conception.”

    I find the far right more vocal and unhinged, but perhaps that is because I am not far right. The goalposts of the extreme do shift however, and also vary from person to person. If I had been told in early February entire countries would become more or less open prisons because of a virus, I am not sure I would have believed it. It is obvious to the point of banality that this thing is not going to do anyone’s mental health much good.
