Rather not

"American Think Tanks Are Hired Purveyors of Fake News" (Roberts):
"A couple of decades or more ago when I was still in Washington, otherwise known as the snake pit, I was contacted by a well-financed group that offered me, a Business Week and Scripps Howard News Service columnist with access as a former editor also to the Wall Street Journal, substantial payments to promote agendas that the lobbyists paying the bills wanted promoted.

To the detriment of my net worth, but to the preservation of my reputation, I declined. Shortly thereafter a conservative columnist, a black man if memory serves, was outed for writing newspaper columns for pay for a lobby group."
"Now Mattis Admits There Was No Evidence Assad Used Poison Gas On His People" (Wilkie). Newsweek is obviously in big trouble, and, as shocking as it may seem, has been reduced to taking the emergency, last-gasp, refuge of the mainstream American media, telling the truth. By the way, is it even legal for a goy to own a mainstream American media outlet?  Perhaps that explains why American government authorities have been snooping around Newsweek offices.

Ha!:  "UNHCR in talks to send African migrants to ‘safe’ countries, let others stay".  They'll get around the non-refoulement problem by pawning the refugees off on countries run by western politicians bribed or blackmailed by the Khazars!!!

"Trump's Palestine deal is a real estate transaction" (Law).  The Africans are a trial run for mass transfer of Palestinians.

What is the United States coming to when a crooked slumlord agent for a very unfriendly foreign power can't get a security clearance (but acts like one is not needed)?:  "WTF is going on with Jared Kushner’s security clearance" (apologies for the revolting link).

Tweet (Gryper by the Pussy)"
"So wait.

Will they be given Israeli citizenship then?

This could be a good solution for everyone."
"A nation that is built on an ethnic definition of nationality and arose on the ashes of another people’s existence in the land is actually just the sort of country to deport refugees.  When one’s primary concern is to preserve ethnic purity and sovereignty, any admission of “others” – especially non-European others – is bound to be seen as dangerous contamination and to be avoided at all costs.  So that’s why I answer her rhetorical question with: “It’s the Nakba, Stupid!”"

A good start:  "Israel's Military Says One Of Its Jets Has Been Shot Down After New Raids In Syria".  Note that Syria needs to be punished for defending itself:  "Israel launches 'large-scale attack' in Syria after Israeli F-16 fighter jet shot down".

Wtf has happened to Counterpunch!:  "Germany Commemorates Auschwitz Liberation … with New Nazis".

A good summary, just missing the vital Ukrainian role, of the possible origins of the anti-Trump material:  "Is the Steele Dossier Full of ‘Russian Dirt’ – or British?" (Jatras).  It seems that it was a Shearer/Blumenthal product attached to Steele as Steele had a 'good reputation' with the FBI, thus giving the obviously partisan 'research' a veneer of objectivity.  It remains unanswered whether Steele was going rogue of his government, or whether the Brits were in on the anti-Trump conspiracy (I'd guess the latter, but of course they can't admit that now!).

"Cody Shearer: Who is the Clinton friend behind 'second Trump-Russia dossier'?" Note the Shaerer/Blumenthal connection over the lies involving the American attack on Libya.

Blumenthal's job, then, was to feed his own product directly into the DoJ (and thus to the FISA Court)!:  "Former Official Confirms Steele Dossier Was Shared With Obama State Department".

""Rather Not Have A Paper Trail" - Top Dem Texted Russian Oligarch Lobbyist For Access To Steele" (Durden).

The quintessential story!:  "Labour’s top Israel lobbyist accused of defrauding Jewish charity" (Winstanley).
