Barbarians

"Trump‘s Red Line" (Hersh)!  As good as you might expect, but it bears the signs of American IC spin, making the IC look better than it should (and putting all the blame on Trump, consistent with IC attitudes towards him).  That isn't a bad thing, as it betrays an awareness that the whole Khan Sheikhoun conspiracy was a big American IC fuckup.  Added, for comic relief (Higgins must get paid extra for such a rush job!):  "Will Get Fooled Again – Seymour Hersh, Welt, and the Khan Sheikhoun Chemical Attack".

"Angry Dems Turn On Obama, Pelosi, Schumer: "Talk Less About Russia"".  It should be completely clear by now that they intend to go down with the ship (of 'donors').  Whining about Russia provides an excuse for the Killary loss (keeping Clinton 'viable' for 2020), prevents the entrenched apparatchiks from being removed, preserves the lovely, shekel-y 'donor' model, and takes up all the rhetorical space that might have to be used to preserve health care and any other mildly progressive possibilities.  What's not to like?

"Our Grand American Delusion by Publius Tacitus".

"CNN Deletes 'Fake News' Story About Russian Investment Ties To Trump".  This kind of thing, if it existed (and it may), would be the Holy Grail, but making up shit doesn't help.

"Policing ‘Truth’ to Restore ‘Trust’" (Parry).  To be read with "The Blathering Superego at the End of History".  The idea is that politics should consist of a credentialed priesthood who deliver the tablets containing the empirical facts of what must be done to the lowly populace.  It is immoral/blasphemous for any deplorable to resist.  There is a very strong element of religious mysticism in this.

"Democrats in the Dead Zone" (St. Clair).  Inauthenticity.  The Dems doubled down on every single one of their standard mistakes in an almost robotic way.

"18 Israeli Fighter Jets Landed in Saudi Arabia to Prevent Coup".  Sounds very fake, but if there is some Jew/Crypto-Jew conspiracy going on - and there are signs - this is the kind of thing that a nervous Salman might request.  It would also explain why the other royals have accepted this massive shift in power, and makes it, yes, a Khoup d'etat.

"Tensions Mount as the New Saudi Prince Takes Charge" (Margolis).  "Crises over Qatar Reaches New Levels: Assessing Implications".  You could choose to see Salman's foolishness as a very, very good thing, forcing the Turks to choose sides, putting the whole dispute over the Muslim Brotherhood on the table, and, as with all the other 'strategic' moves of the Khazars, strengthening Iran.

Salman has too much credibility invested in the slaughter of Yemen for it to be over before Salman is over.  He made the most basic mistake of statesmanship - starting a war with no defined outcome that could be declared a win followed by the end of the war.  The Americans make the same mistake in fighting Wars For The Jews - because there is no American national interest in fighting these wars, they never end, as no politician can plausibly declare that an American national interest has been met and the war can be concluded.  Witness the laughter over Bush's 'Mission Accomplished', and the current situation in Afghanistan.

"Israel's Fire Support For Its Al-Qaeda Mercenaries Started Three Years Ago".  The one thing about kleptomaniacs - or rather, Khleptomaniacs - is that you can be ready for them.  Surveillance, security guards, ink tags on the merch, S-300s, you know.  "State Fair’s ‘Swindler’ Sandwich Renamed After Being Called Anti-Semitic".

"GRENFELL TOWER: Boris Johnson Gives Millions to Fake White Helmets in Syria, Makes Savage Cuts to London Fire Service".  "VICTORIOUS SYRIA: The Axis of Resistance Confounds the Forces of Empire" (both Beeley).

"Twelfth of July Orange walk to be televised live on BBC One in Northern Ireland".  The spoils of holding the balance of power.  What could possibly go wrong?

"Athens versus Jerusalem":
"Inside of 70 years, Jerusalemites, with feverish dedication have successfully installed their peculiar brand of anarchy through the aggressive spread of divisive Identitarian Politics, tyrannical Political Correctness, ruinous Predatory Economics, vampirical Controlled Opposition, as well as a most lethal form of warmongering Jewish Power – all simultaneously and insidiously injected into Western societies.  Jerusalem has evidently delivered us nothing but endless warfare overseas and palpable instability and dystopia in our Western societies.  It has brought us a non-humanistic world.  It has given us a lowering of citizen morale and an increase in barbaric immorality where might over right is normalized.  Jerusalem has steeped us in an absurd environment where decadent perversions are permitted, but freedom of speech is curtailed.  A world where freedom of thought is punished instead of promoted."
