Nobel Thirst Prize

When a world class grifter like Palin shifts . . .

Sympathy for the devils:  "Forced far from home, Syrians struggle to start over in Idlib".

"Alan Dershowitz has threatened to leave the Democratic Party if Keith Ellison becomes chair".  I wonder if Haim paid to extract Dersh from the Orgy Island mess, as otherwise this makes no sense at all.  Dersh would normally always take the standard 'liberal' position, and Ellison, apart from a few off-hand remarks years ago, has a demonstrated record as the perfect shabbos goy.

"The Fires of Standing Rock: How a New Resistance Movement was Ignited".  This is good, but I suspect we'll soon see the usual (Occupy, BLM) double attack from the media and the brutal institutional tools of the oligarchs.  The victory was based on the fact that Barry didn't want to leave his Presidency amid howls of having murdered a veteran.

Tweet (Nancy Sinatra) (lots of tweeting!):
"Hang tough!"
One of the most sordid examples of recent 'journalism', particularly the lying attempt at the cover-up: "Washington Post Admits “Russian Government Hackers do not Appear to have Targeted Vermont Utility”".  The forensics of the crime (an incredible web of documented straight-up lying by the Post):  "How The Washington Post's Defense Of Its Russian Hacking Story Unraveled Through Web Archiving".

"CNN Caught Using Screen Capture From Video Game About Nuclear War In Russian Hacking Story".  "CNN uses screenshot from ‘Fallout 4’ to show how Russians hack things".  Appropriately from the snarky parody of a neoliberal education video which plays while your game is loading.

"Why Crowdstrike’s Russian Hacking Story Fell Apart- Say Hello to Fancy Bear".  The number of Ukrainian connections to this story can't be a coincidence.

"U.S./UK Paid "White Helmets" Help Blocking Water To 5 Million Thirsty Syrians".  Also.  Very odd for a propaganda tool to break cover like this.  Jew-controlled media spin is 'accidental'.

Tweets by aleph on Turkey's grim future.  Usually, in this kind of case, the leader responsible is assassinated.

"Turkey’s Officials Say American TOWs are Hurting Them Big Time".  The very definition of irony.

"TURKISH CLUB SHOOTING PART TWO: Mistaken Prime Suspect? Turkish Nightclub’s Security ‘Taken Over’ Prior to Attack".  It is striking that the havens of the international trash set are almost always immune from 'terrorism', which is directed at the poor and working class.  As in Germany, a 'mistake' in identification gives the perp lots of time to escape.

"America or Israel?".  Is mustachioed Bolton in or out?

"Some of what Israel did to Palestinians in one year--or what US media don't cover".

"Zionist Extremism as Product of the Internal Dynamics of Judaism, Part 3: A Risky Strategy Becomes Mainstream" by
Kevin MacDonald:
"The point is that movements that start out on the extreme of the Jewish political spectrum eventually end up driving the entire process, so that in the end not only American Jews but pro-Israeli non-Jewish politicians end up mouthing the rhetoric that was formerly reserved for extremists within the Jewish community. In 2003, at a time when there are well over one hundred Israeli settlements on the West Bank and Gaza filled with fanatic fundamentalists and armed zealots intent on eradicating the Palestinians, it is revealing that Moshe Sharett, Israeli prime minister in the 1950s, worried that the border settlements were composed of well-armed exsoldiers—extremists who were intent on expanding the borders of Israel. Immediately after the armistice agreement of 1948 Israeli zealots, sometimes within the army and sometimes in the nascent settler movement, began a long string of provocations of Israel’s neighbors.104 An operation of the Israeli army (under the leadership of Ariel Sharon) that demolished homes and killed civilians at Qibya in 1953 was part of a broader plan: “The stronger the tensions in the region, the more demoralized the Arab populations and destabilized the Arab regimes, the stronger the pressures for the transfer of the concentrations of Palestinian refugees from places near the border away into the interior of the Arab world—and the better it was for the preparation of the next war.”105 At times the army engaged in provocative actions without Prime Minister Sharett’s knowledge,106 as when David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, led a raid in 1955 which resulted in a massacre of Arabs in Gaza. When confronted with his actions by an American Jew, Ben-Gurion “stood up. He looked like an angry prophet out of the Bible and got red in the face. He shouted, ‘I am not going to let anybody, American Jews or anyone else, tell me what I have to do to provide for the security of my people.”107

The war to occupy the West Bank did not take place until 1967, but Sharett describes plans by the Israeli army to occupy the West Bank dating from 1953. Throughout the period from 1948–1967 “some of the major and persistent accusations” by the Israeli right were that the Labor-dominated governments had accepted the partition of Palestine and had not attempted to “eradicate Palestinian boundaries” during the 1948 war.108 The annexation of East Jerusalem and the settlement of the West Bank began immediately after the 1967 war—exactly what would be expected on the assumption that this was a war of conquest. Menachem Begin, who accelerated the settlement process when he assumed power in 1977, noted, “In June 1967, we again had a choice. The Egyptian Army concentrations in the Sinai approaches do not prove that [Egyptian President] Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.”109"

Tweet (Glenn Greenwald) (spectacular catch of premature Clintonista gloating):
"The day the Post retracts PUTIN HACKED THE ELECTRICITY GRID! seems like a bad time to mock those who want evidence for such official claims."

PayPal versus cash:  Tweet (Club des Cordeliers):
"Gates, Omidyar, USAID, et al. are actors behind the scenes of India's catastrophic demonetisation policy"
Tweet (David Burge):
"Breaking: State Dept expels 20 Nigerian diplomats after John Podesta fails to receive $1 million wire transfer from nephew of General Okezi"
