Babchenko

"Babchenko lives!" (Robinson).  He pops up, alive, and calls it a 'sting operation'.  How is that even possible?  If he's dead, he can't possibly trick that rascal Putin into killing him again!

Here's what it is, another false flag.  The idea was that he would die, assassinated by the evil Russians, with evidence of the gory violence published everywhere.  After Russiagate, Syria, the Skripals, and the just resurrected MH17, this was to have been the last straw for the Anglo-Americans, a part of the final casus belli for WWIII.  Once WWIII was started, Babchenko would have just laid low for a while, and WWIII would develop a logic of its own and progress to the ruination of Europe and much of the world.  The neo-Nazis in Ukraine and elsewhere would have been ecstatic.  It is a curious fact of history that both the Ukrainian neo-Nazis, and their Khazar pals, really, really hate Europe.  Needless to say, the despicable Euro-trash politicians do nothing to stop this and save the continent from utter destruction (and we're starting to see the revolt from Europeans who see these traitors for what they are).

Babchenko and his pals thought a little too much of the importance of his death, and while it was played up in the media, spread by the (((usual suspects))), it wasn't enough for WWIII, so they had to unwind the hoax.

"The Purpose Of The Babchenko Hoax" (Moon).  We need to keep a wary eye on Yevhen Lauer and Trident Group LLC.

"The Photo That Fueled The Hoax: Behind The Gruesome Image Of Babchenko's 'Death'" (note how incompetently done this was when Radio Free Europe is writing critically about it!; of course, we may also be seeing push-back from the Trump Adminstration):
"Additional questions were raised about its timing since Ukrainian officials, including a lawmaker, had said that Babchenko had died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital, suggesting he was still alive when the photo was taken.
In a posting to Facebook, the lawmaker, Anton Herashchenko, defended the secrecy, and the deception, of the SBU, which he said “was done to avoid even the slightest possibility of information leaking.”
“It was for this reason that a photo of the alleged victim Arkady Babchenko was made,” he wrote."
The critical background to understanding this is that Ukraine is readying its troops for a large summer attack on Donbass, an attack which of course is being prepared in the (((media))) with descriptions of a Russian attack on Ukraine!!!  "Donbass Calls Up The Reserves, Prepares For Attack From Kiev" (Batty).  "US Supplies Ukraine with Lethal Weapons to Escalate Conflict and Bury Hopes for Peace" (Savitsky).  This kind of report is everywhere in the last few weeks:  "Russian militants mount 22 attacks on Ukraine army in Donbas in past day with two WIA reported".  Post World Cup!:  "Turchynov: Russia may begin large-scale offensive in Donbas in July".  The Babchenko 'assassination' would have fitted neatly into the WWIII story.  Putin's next job is to stop this trick.

Obamagate

"Possible diplomatic breakthrough in southwest Syria - TTG":
"That Israel would give up their jihadist allies in exchange for a dozen or so miles of separation from Iranian backed militias and the IRGC indicates to me that they have no stomach for active conflict on the Golan front. Perhaps the last dust up in which the SAA fired back gave the IDF reason to rethink their long term strategy."
"UK medics treated Skripals for opioid overdose until Porton Down tests showed nerve agent poisoning".  They treated the symptoms they saw, and the medical issue they diagnosed, until James Bond showed up and set them straight.  The Skripals are lucky that BZ didn't actually require much treatment after they were stabilized, just time, or the improper quack treatments prescribed by James Bond for a problem they didn't have might have led to their deaths.

Note the first illustration:  "Novichok, Tommy Robinson, Isis, Duke Of Sussex, Elayn Neal, Kennedy, Bjp, Guatemala, Syria " (Aangirfan).  The Robinson case is weird as he was working his usual Islamophobia angle (you can identify the shekeled professional Islamophobes by their obsession with a fear of imminent imposition of 'sharia law'), and the British state would be expected to stand by and allow that to happen, but in this case a judge seems to have gone off script and gone ape shit on him with a bizarre over-extension of the concept of contempt of court (the gag order seems to have been tossed in, paradoxically, so that nobody could fail to notice).  Perhaps the plan is to burnish his credentials in the eyes of the public.

Still running:  "Elizabeth Warren is quietly working to defang Trump's 'Pocahontas' slur as 2020 looms".  A DNA test would answer the question of pretendianism, so her bloviation is pointless until she takes one and reveals the results.

"Oxford Union panel speaker Heather Marsh confirms debate was censored to protect CIA" (Reed).  These are people planning to take their rightful place in the world, on top, so they always act exactly as you might expect.

"Visualizing The Imperial Logic Of US Foreign Policy".  This is the way it used to work.  Now there is just one question at the top of the pyramid:  "Is the country on land that the Khazars want to steal, or might it in any way interfere with the Khazar land theft project?" Very simple!

"Republican Jewish Coalition emerges as Trump’s hub for raising money, and making foreign policy" (Weiss).  Although you still can't mention it in polite company, the connection between American foreign policy and shekels has never been clearer.

"Transfer of the US Embassy to Jerusalem: Legal implications" (Koechler).  I've always found it amusing that there was a complete change in international law right at 1945.  Killing people and stealing their land - the kind of thing Europeans were famous for - was essentially OK until Germany tried it on Europe, and suddenly it was not OK.  That 'sauce for the gander' didn't set too well.  Just after the change, and with a certain amount of irony (given that the particular suffering of the Khazars played a huge role in the PR at the time, and since), the Khazars tried it in the Middle East.  Completely and utterly illegal, so when the time comes to wind up the whole crime scene that is Israel, the restoration of the norms of international law should go off without a hitch.

"London-to-Langley Spy Ring; The Roots Of Obamagate Become Clearer" (Durden).  "The Plot to Slaughter Donald Trump by Publius Tacitus".  The Clintonistas are now straight-up stating that there is no proof of Obamagate, betraying a certain nervousness in the face of the early facts (what is yet to be revealed is how far up the machinations go, but the investigation continues).  The key point is that the conspiracy needed to develop enough probable cause to put into affidavits to get the FISA warrants.  The campaign was infiltrated, and the bait set, for that purpose.

Goyim, I . . .

"Merkel’s ultimatum to Orban".  Very specifically Soros.

"MUST SEE IMAGE …. TO MAIM OR TO KILL" (DesertPeace).

"#MeToo witch-hunt targets veteran actor Morgan Freeman" (Morrow).  The commie bros at it again, but there is something to be said for making a moral and legal distinction between men who are just assholes, and the actual assaulters like Weinstein or Polanski.  Stories like Freeman, and Aziz Ansari's 'bad date', and Tambor's rudeness, and even the creepy C.K. exhibitionism, confuse and dilute the response to the real criminals.  I suspect in many cases that confusion is the point.

"The Witch Hunt Against a 'pro-Israel' Wikipedia Editor" (Benjakob).  The view of 'Philip Cross' from the supremacist beneficiaries of his 'editing'.  Or, as they say in the memes, 'Goyim, I", generally the start of some part of our necessary education 'for our own good'.  Note that the author actually got a response, of sorts, from 'Philip Cross'.

More good advice/'Goyim, I':  "Tom Friedman has advice for Palestinians: Embrace Zionism" (Rose).  It is not too difficult to grasp why a certain tiny group of people has elicited such ill will over the years.  See also:  "NYT Edit Board Are Last Humans on Earth Who Believe US Neutral in Israel/Palestine Conflict (Johnson).

Peak 'Goyim, I':  "Alas, poor Bernard Lewis, a fellow of infinite jest" (Dabashi).

I feel sorry for the superior Khazars. It must be frustrating telling us retards - basically no better than farm animals - how things really are - the land theft, each War For The Jews, WWIII, being ground into hamburgers.  We're not smart enough to realize the inevitability of their plans, and how our resistance just makes things worse for us.  The condescension just drips off each word they deliver.

A wonderful example of The Clarification:  "Leading Democratic activists accidentally share photos of immigrants detained under Obama administration" (Leigh).  The hilarity continues when they had trouble recovering from the ironies:  "Caged Migrant Children Photo Goes Viral As Left Rages At Trump; Except It Happened Under Obama" (Durden).  The parody tweets at the end are clever.  The #Resistance characters were all remarkably quiet when the sainted Barry was doing the same things as Trump, or worse.

"Israel, Russia said to reach secret deal on pushing Iran away from Syria border".  This is refreshingly different from what we usually see, which is Israel promising something everybody knows they have no intention of doing.  The fact is that when Iran needs troops near the border, nobody will be able to stop them from moving troops near the border.

Tweet (We Are Not Numbers #Gaza):
"The World Health Organization just voted by a margin of 90-6 to send a fact-finding mission to Gaza. The six in the hall of shame: Canada, Israel, United States, U.K., Australia, Guatemala #Shameless"
"Russian Billionaire Roman Abramovich Reportedly Immigrating to Israel".

"MH-17 Probe Follows Frame-Up Process of Skripal Poisoning" (Cunningham).  Layers of the same WWIII-mongering operation, which also includes #Russiagate and numerous other bits of nonsense.  It is a remarkably lackluster operation throughout, performed by grim bureaucrats and 'journalists' without any enthusiasm.

Tools and patsies

The James Bond who conspired with Brennan to start Russiagate 'resigned' days before Trump's inauguration: tweet (GCHQ)"
"We're sorry to announce that Robert Hannigan, our Director since 2014, has decided to step down as head of GCHQ https://www.gchq.gov.uk/news-article/director-hannigan-gchq-step-down …"
I know it's Steyn, but he has a pretty good timeline, although he goes characteristically off the road towards the end, as the real target throughout was never Trump (and I'm shocked he mentions the Israeli involvement in the plot!): "Tinker, Tailor, Clapper, Carter, Downer, Halper, Spy".  One of the main parts of The Clarification is that the traditional American 'left', who don't usually miss a trick, particularly an IC trick, are completely oblivious (or pretend to be) to these wild and breathtakingly obvious manipulations.  "The Dummies Guide To The Russia Collusion Hoax: Who, What, Where, When, & Why" (Kimball).  Somebody needs to set up an actual day-by-day timeline showing how various assets pushed the Trump campaign pieces around.  One of the keys of the conspiracy is getting the FISA warrants based on Brennan/Clapper-organized machinations which started months before (and were performed in cahoots with British and Israeli and Australian assistance).  One big hint is that the 'bait' was always Russian control of the cache of Killary emails, as the point throughout was to leave a trail that pointed back to that rascal Putin.  Essentially, all these Easter eggs were planted by Brennan-Clapper and their pals, and every day the 'left' shouts with glee as it uncovers a new one.  The plot might have worked much better had the Trump campaign staff been even slightly competent!

"The FBI uses "confidential informants?" So did the Cheka." (Lang).  "Solzhenitsyn breaks last taboo of the revolution " (Walsh).

"Carter Page Speaks Out: This Is How The FBI Ruined My Life" (Durden) (I'm guessing that "wealthy donors from California and New York" is code for something, what could it be?):
"Caputo noted that Senate Intelligence Committee members are working together and contributing to the "swamp," pointing to the fact that a former Senate Intelligence staffer to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) - Daniel Jones, was one of two sources in a recent McClatchy report about Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney whose office, home and hotel room were raided last month at special counsel Robert Mueller's request.

“But who is McClatchy’s second source? It couldn’t be Dan; he was the first source ... So who could it be — perhaps one of his former Senate Intelligence colleagues? I mean, you’re all in this together. You’re the swamp.”

Jones, a former FBI investigator who was previously one of Feinstein's top aides, is conducting an ongoing, private investigation into Trump-Russia claims using $50 million supplied by George Soros and a group of 7-10 wealthy donors from California and New York. Jones is working with opposition research firm Fusion GPS - and Christopher Steele, the former UK spy Fusion commissioned to create the infamous "Steele Dossier" which former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe said was instrumental to the Trump-Russia investigation."
The Soros/Bliar/ Remain conspiracy continues.  Comment at Naked Capitalism by Ed:
"“New polling analysis reveals that a second referendum would swing to Remain Prospect”

You are going to see a lot of these headlines. Its worth keeping in mind that during the actual referendum in 2015, Remain was leading in the polls throughout the campaign. It would never have been called otherwise."
"RFK Jr. doesn’t believe the ‘official story’ that Sirhan Sirhan shot his father alone — and wants a new investigation" (Brigham).  "The Blatant Conspiracy behind Senator Robert F. Kennedy’s Assassination" (Curtin).  "'The girl in the polka dot dress'".  This is the sloppiest of the big American conspiracies (shot from behind by a guy standing in front of him, who didn't have enough bullets for all the shots fired, jeez!), with an Official Story that contradicts itself and makes even less sense than usual.

There's this connection between the far right and conspiracy theory, where the Deep State uses marginal far right operatives as tools and patsies, which seems to pop up in all the big conspiracies.  I'll just leave these here (Houghton - 'Raoul'?! - was supposedly assassinated in 1967, but no body was found, and a government informant/operative might have gone into witsec):

  1. "Re: Troy Houghton: The Minuteman";
  2. "Troy Houghton and the Minutemen" (note!:  "Pastor Dennis P. Mower");
  3. "Troy Houghton: The Minuteman";
  4. "Troy Houghton aka Haughton"; and
  5. "The Minutemen".

"How a Bernie Sanders resolution is normalising the war on terror" (Davis):
". . . while Sanders' resolution would curtail the more direct forms of support for these hostilities, it would allow the other US war in Yemen to continue. In fact, it makes sure that the proposal is not construed as limiting it, providing an exemption for "United States armed forces engaged in operations directed at al-Qaeda or associated forces".
If Sanders' resolution had been passed on January 20, 2016, that language would mean that every raid and drone attack in Yemen that Trump has authorised since would have happened anyway. US cluster bombs will continue to fall on Yemen, so long as it is part of a war on terror."

Rise to the bait

"The hunt for Xiemen: the mysterious Vancouver firm at the centre of a C$3.3M Trump-fundraiser payment" (Ball/Peng).  The Official TDS Story is that Broidy covered for a pregnancy caused by Trump.  Now we have a mysterious Nader/Broidy financial connection, with Broidy paid off for accepting a bit of personal embarrassment with big UAE (i.e., MbZ) contracts.

Just as an aside, I really don't know what to say about any woman who claims to have been bamboozled by Trump, famously married, and famously, well, Trump.  The idea that any human being could fall for his early sweet talk is baffling.

"Draft Version of Scotland Yard’s Statement on Behalf of Sergei Skripal" (Slane).  "Of a type developed by Russia".

"How The Code Name ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ Undermines The FBI’s Russia Story" (the incomparable Lee Smith):
"The New York Times’ 4,000-word report last week on the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign’s possible ties to Russia revealed for the first time that the investigation was called “Crossfire Hurricane.”

The name, explains the paper, refers to the Rolling Stones lyric “I was born in a crossfire hurricane,” from the 1968 hit “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” Mick Jagger, one of the songwriters, said the song was a “metaphor” for psychedelic-drug induced states. The other, Keith Richards, said it “refers to his being born amid the bombing and air raid sirens of Dartford, England, in 1943 during World War II.”

Investigation names, say senior U.S. law enforcement officials, are designed to refer to facts, ideas, or people related to the investigation. Sometimes they’re explicit, and other times playful or even allusive. So what did the Russia investigation have to do with World War II, psychedelic drugs, or Keith’s childhood?

The answer may be found in the 1986 Penny Marshall film named after the song, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” In the Cold War-era comedy, a quirky bank officer played by Whoopi Goldberg comes to the aid of Jonathan Pryce, who plays a British spy being chased by the KGB.

The code name “Crossfire Hurricane” is therefore most likely a reference to the former British spy whose allegedly Russian-sourced reports on the Trump team’s alleged ties to Russia were used as evidence to secure a Foreign Intelligence Service Act secret warrant on Trump adviser Carter Page in October 2016: ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele."
Note how Steele is being written out of the story, to be replaced by Mifsud and Halper, who are themselves now being written out of the story!
"So what was Halper doing in this instance? He wasn’t really a spy (a person who is generally tasked with stealing secrets) or an informant (a person who provides information about criminal activities from the inside). Rather, it seems he was more like an agent provocateur, whose job was to ask leading questions to get Trump campaign advisers to say things that would corroborate—or seem to corroborate—evidence that the bureau believed it already had in hand.
Halper met with at least three Trump campaign advisers: Sam Clovis, Page, and George Papadopoulos. The latter two he met with in London, where Halper had reason to feel comfortable operating.
Halper’s close contacts in the intelligence world weren’t limited to the CIA. They also include foreign intelligence officials like Richard Dearlove, the former head of the United Kingdom’s foreign intelligence service, MI6. According to a Washington Times report, Halper and Dearlove are partners in a UK consulting firm, Cambridge Security Initiative.
Dearlove is also close to Steele. According to the Washington Post, Dearlove met with Steele in the early fall of 2016, when his former charge shared his “worries” about what he’d found on the Trump campaign and “asked for his guidance.”
London was therefore the perfect place for Halper to spring a trap — outside the direct purview of the FBI, but on territory where he knew he could operate safely. It appears Halper’s job was to induce inexperienced Trump campaign figures to say things that corroborated the 35-page series of memos written by Steele—the centerpiece of the Russiagate investigation—in order to license a broader campaign of government spying against Trump and his associates in the middle of a presidential election."
I should reiterate that the target of this wasn't Trump's supposedly hapless campaign, but Putin and the Russians after Killary's inevitable win (and the planned subsequent WWIII).

"Hillary Clinton Dons Heavy Coat and Scarf in Sweltering 90° Boston Heat" (Laila).  When she dies there will be a slew of stories about how she courageously suffered through terrible health problems, which she had to conceal in order to avoid the inevitable attacks by the haters, in order to serve the American people.

I'm surprised to see Cockburn pick up on this:  "The Manchester Bomber Was Enabled by the British Government".  Cockburn naturally pulls his punches, the comment by Steve gets to the real point.  Note how the Americans instantly knew the name of the terrorist, and how a photo from the scene was immediately tweeted by a guy who turned out to be an employee of . . . Jared Kushner.  'Blowback' is bad enough, but active encouragement of, and participation in, terrorism is yet another level.

"Black Cube: Inside the shadowy Israeli firm accused of trying to undermine the Iran deal":
"The firm was founded by former Israeli military officers in 2011. It retains close ties to the Israeli intelligence community, and many of its recruits are former Mossad agents.

Those links are part of its pitch to clients.

"The insinuation is that 'we’re so powerful, we have these links, and we can call on them,'" said the source, who asked not to be identified, fearing reprisal from Black Cube. "They want that veneer of 'we're still the state, but we’re not really the state.'""
and:
"“They would never work against Israeli interests,” said the source who was familiar with Black Cube's Iran work. He likened the firm to an “almost privatized wing of Mossad.”

He also suggested there was little chance that the Israeli government or its intelligence agencies were unaware of Black Cube’s work to discredit the Iran deal."
and:
"As part of the company’s work for Weinstein, a Black Cube operative befriended the actress Rose McGowan while posing as an investment manager focused on women's empowerment at a London-based firm, according to emails between her and McGowan obtained by NBC News. The operative used the alias Diana Filip in the Weinstein scheme, according to the emails. That bogus firm was the same that Gavrilo, in reaching out to Rebecca Kahl, claimed as her employer.

The identity of Diana Filip was revealed to be an Israeli army veteran named Stella Penn Pechanac by the British tabloid The Daily Mail.

Elsewhere, Black Cube’s underhanded tactics have been revealed to the embarrassment of its clients.

Hired by a Canadian investment company in a dispute with another firm, a Black Cube operative attempted to embarrass an Ontario superior court judge who had ruled unfavorably for Black Cube’s client by trying to induce him to make anti-Semitic comments. The effort went nowhere, and Black Cube’s client in that case is now mired in lawsuits."
In the last link above (requisite Blatchford warning), note how on point the attack was!:
"A former Ontario Superior Court judge was targeted in a sting designed to discredit him days before his decision in a controversial case with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake was scheduled to be heard at the Ontario Court of Appeal.

The sting saw the 74-year-old former judge, Frank Newbould, audiotaped and photographed surreptitiously at a posh Toronto restaurant as an agent posing as a potential client apparently tried to induce him, in vain, to make anti-Semitic remarks."
and:
"In the first meeting at Newbould’s office, Rodriguez said he thought his case might have to be heard in New York, but he expressed doubts about getting a fair hearing there because of “the Jewish lobby or influence in New York.”

Four times in this conversation, Rodriguez mentioned as a potential problem for his client “the Jewish lobby or influence,” “the Jewish issue,” “the Jewish way of doing things…. All the time trying to take more than they should, and more than agreed.”

Newbould failed to rise to the bait, repeatedly responding only with such benign disclaimers as “there’s good Jewish people and there’s some bad Jewish people … some good Spaniards and bad Spaniards” and “My experience is arbitrators aren’t influenced by that (ethnicity).”

He also tried to explain the rules of arbitration to Rodriguez and the two agreed to discuss the job over dinner that night at Scaramouche, an expensive midtown Toronto restaurant known equally for its fine food and sweeping views. Rodriguez paid.

The judge did not see a tape recorder being switched on. Nor did he notice a photographer taking his photo, careful it would seem to only capture the back of Rodriguez.

They quickly returned to that morning’s discussion. With little preamble, Rodriguez said the man heading the company that was allegedly stealing his client’s technology was “this Jewish guy.”

Newbould ignored this, told him he needed to retain both a lawyer and an arbitrator, and said it wasn’t clear to him which role Rodriguez saw for him. “If you have in mind that I would be the arbitrator,” he said, “I couldn’t give you advice on all that you’re asking me.”

To do so, he said, would be inappropriate. “I couldn’t do that,” Newbould said. “Nobody, no good arbitrator, would ever do that.”"
They attempted to plant doctored evidence in the media by using Blatchford, who isn't quite as stupid as you might think from reading her body of work (see also:  "Christie Blatchford: The night two alleged spies were sent to dinner and two more spies showed up").  If this is true, Catalyst needs to be sanctioned, hard, by the courts for this (there's a hell of a lot of chutzpah involved in threatening to abuse obviously faked sting evidence, and the lawyer, named Greenspan, also seems to have his fair share!).  I would think a judge would want to deter this kind of attack on a brother judge, but of course there are usually other (((factors))) in these decisions (but the Ontario courts do seem to be thus far sending quite a message). 

What we have to notice from the Mossad in recent years - extremely aggressive, almost comically so, and extremely incompetent.  They have so many things going for them they seem to feel that they can just do what they want in the sloppiest way possible, and their general control of various institutions - courts, (((media))), politicians - will see them through.

The Empire of Bluffing

"Trump Now Says the Korea Summit is Back on for the 12th" (Anglin).  When the two Korean leaders said 'who needs Trump, we'll figure it out ourselves', emergency sirens went off in Washington.  What kind of indispensable Empire are you if people start ignoring you?  Suddenly, Trump is available to meet again,  as if his funny little passive-aggressive letter had never been sent.

The Europeans should take heed in figuring out how to surmount the Empire in dealing with Iran (and Russia, and China, etc).  The Empire is a bluff.  It issues orders, but has neither the political nor the military ability to enforce them.  The American military, burdened by massive white elephant spending (F-35, all those incompetently designed and built warships that just serve as juicy targets), and corruption at inconceivable levels, physically and morally weakened by spending literally all of its time dropping bombs on, and droning, civilians, can't be relied upon to enforce any threat against a determined national actor, and the Washington elites are now trying to ensure that nobody finds that out.  Call the bluff!  Ignore the Americans, and they will have to come crawling back as they are terrified that the world will find out that the Empire has already died, in the dark, sucked dry by the (((parasite))).

Change My Mind

Odd:  "IMF Pledges Continued Work With Central Bank of Iran".

"US House strips Trump of War Powers on Iran – Story buried".  It will be interesting to watch how quietly this is stripped out of the bill.

Mysterious rash of removal of articles reporting on the arrest of Tommy Robinson.  "Orwell’s Nightmare: Articles About Tommy Robinson’s Arrest Rapidly Scrubbed From the Internet" (Fairbanks).

"Naomi Wolf and Anti-semitism’s Mystification" (Cook):
"In our subsequent exchange she also noted that she was uncomfortable with the fact that the cartoonist was German."
Engaging with these people in any way means Evil has already won.  "German Newspaper Apologizes for “Anti-Semitic” Cartoon" (Anglin).  "Cartoonist Fired From German Newspaper Over Netanyahu Drawing" (Durden).  The intended effect of these 'well-meaning' 'liberal' (((critics))) is to put a stop to any possible criticism of their program of murder and land theft.  The next cartoonist who is outraged is going to have to think long and hard about whether mentioning it is worth a career.

It is interesting, not to mention increasingly geopolitically important, that the German people, having a media mostly without ((())), are the most woke people in the western world.  "Saudis Halt Orders From German Companies; Crown Prince "Deeply Offended"" (Durden).

"On Accountability in the Light of Israeli Brutality" (Atzmon).

"Propaganda 101: How To Defend A Massacre" (Robinson).

"“Suppressing a Truth of Nature Does Not Make It Go Away”: Guillaume Durocher Interviewed by Hubert Collins".  Interestingly explicit that the appeal of Hitler for the intellectual extreme right is that:
". . . some self-interested, even “barbaric” violence and lordship have been necessary to development of higher life and civilization. Homer and Darwin are very clear on this. All life is made up of love and war. Differentiation implies hierarchy. We can aspire to be like the peaceful lotus flower growing in the muddy pond, but prior to that, we’d never have gotten here without the instinct of the blood-drenched tigress, securing a kill for her cubs. Without such “unfairness,” life would never have developed beyond the stage of the amoeba.

Hitler, because he recognized this reality so clearly and affirmed it as a State religion, has been made to carry the entire burden of this necessary cruelty, which runs across the entire animal kingdom and all human history."
A comment by Durocher himself (the comments also get into Durocher's praise of Assange as "an artist who has transcended the Left-Right divide"):
"While I am open to contrary evidence – e.g. detailed accounts of his Eastern policy – I see no other way of qualifying Hitler’s attitude towards the Slavs of Poland and Russia than one of lordship and “eternal war.” Mein Kampf is already quite explicit and, according to the Table Talk, Hitler thought that regular war in the East would keep the Germans on their guard and stave off decadence. He posited a radical racial difference between Germans and Slavs – including anti-miscegenation laws – which was completely excessive given the genetic reality. Furthermore, understandably or not, his preference was for a permanently disabled France.

That is not to say Hitler favored gratuitous and permanent war with all European peoples. Besides the Italian alliance, he sought an alliance with Great Britain and generally wished for peaceful and productive ties with America and many European nations, namely Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria. He also regretted the decline of the white race in Asia. Hitler wished to unite the Germanic tribes, destroy Bolshevism, and create a great autarkic world-power through conquest of the East.

There is no evidence that Hitler had any interest in conquering Britain, let alone America. It is certainly quite interesting that the-powers-that-be have felt the need to systematically lie on the latter point before, during, and ever since the war. This may betray a guilty conscience. On a final note, as Pat Buchanan has observed, Britain made peace with Germany in 1939 or 1940, it seems quite unlikely the Jews of Europe would have died in the numbers they did, the Germans’ preference was to ship them, quite alive, to Palestine or Madagascar. The fact that pointing this out is taboo – see Ken Livingstone’s troubles – is also highly interesting"

"Jewish Telegraph Agency: "A Guide to the Jewish Machers in the Russia Probe"" (Sailer).  Cohen, Sater, and the main gangsters under discussion - all Jewish, but all we hear is Russia, Putin, Russia, Putin.  It is particularly charming to watch Marshall consistently misconstrue this, while studiously failing to notice the Khazar elephant in the room.  It is bizarre, audacious, and exactly what I would expect.

"Review of Thomas Goodrich’s “Summer, 1945—Germany, Japan and the Harvest of Hate”" (Magnusson).  It is instructive that such a massive amount of crime involving 1000s of participants committing the worst types of atrocities that men are capable of has been completely covered up.  Note that a lot of this was considered justified due to the acceptance of allied war propaganda as truth.  Worth contemplating when somebody asserts some conspiracy could not possibly have happened as 'somebody would have talked'.

" 1.  In the NW the Turkish Army has violated the Astana Agreement's terms by sending a column into Latakia Province (as opposed to Idlib Province) to establish another of their fortified company sized Observation Posts.  This OP is in the Jabal al-Akrad area west of Jisr al-Shugur where the main road approaches the low ground to the east.  In the SW of Idlib Province the Turks are building yet another OP.  IMO they are playing a long game believing that they can retain possession of the Afrin District of Aleppo Province and that Trump will allow them to push the SDF Kurds back to east of the Euphrates and out of Manbij.  Idlib Province is still on the menu as well.  These were all former Ottoman lands.

2.  In the far SW of Syria, the government is massing its forces for an offensive in the next few weeks which will aim to clear and regain all the ground up to the UNDOF line in the Golan Heights and the Israeli fortifications thereon.  Whether or not they have the strength to do that remains to be seen.  The troop list for this large operation includes among others; some TF task teams, 4th Armored Division and Palestinian Liwa al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade).  The presence of this last unit will undoubtedly upset the Israelis."

Beginning of the end?

"President Bolton Cancels Meeting with Kim After Torpedoing Nearly Completed Peace Process" (Anglin).  The Khazars are doing so well at manipulating Trump, on such a roll of Evil, apparently they decided they could have all the wars, Iran, Russia and NK/China.  The short video at the end is worth watching.  The Republicans are doing quite well politically recently, and it would be fun if this reverses the trend, leads to big Democrat gains in Congress which leads directly to Trump's impeachment, and then possible jailing.  The blackmail material held by the Khazars must be terrible stuff.

Rending / Punked / Sorted it out / chicken guy

"Did Fracking Cause The Hawaii Volcano Eruption?" (Durden).  Read through to the end for the usual angle.

"Gaza killings are rending the Jewish community" (Weiss).  Requisite goy management.  Weiss hears sobs in between the back--slapping and high-fiving.  If you actually read the article, it is a list which completely disproves the title.  Note that even his commentators are getting very tired of the Weiss shtick, but Weiss, the ultimate hasbara troll, labors on regardless.

The recent Khazar massacre in Gaza?  Trump's fault, and Jews are the real victims here!:  "Thanks to Trump and Netanyahu, it's Jew vs. Jew".

"Lying Liar James Clapper Just Lied Again About His Previous Lies About NSA Spying" (Payton).  Clapper has a meta-lie to explain his lying to Congress.  Since it was none other than Meghan McCain who asked the surprising question - shocking, in fact, because one of the mainstays of the (((media))) is never to question these guys in any way - I assume the question was created by Clapper's team to allow him to trot out the lying explanation.

"Second Trump Campaign Spy Was From NSA, Offered Hillary's Emails: Caputo" (Durden).  The problem with the Clintonista apologies for the IC operation against Trump, as spouted by places like Lawfare and TPM, is that mere law enforcement investigators don't keep consistently offering up Russian access to intriguing oppo like these guys did (though it is interesting that this early ratfucking attempt seemed to be packaged as coming from the NSA), and we haven't even heard what Mifsud was doing.  It was entrapment, and a very specific form of entrapment, as it was directed at implicating the Russians, not Trump, as part of the post-Clinton-victory plans for WWIII.  It is actually much, much, much worse than Watergate, high treason in fact. It won't, of course, happen, but people should be hanged over this.

It is funny how often Marshall keeps looking for Russians and running into Khazars (who are usually, of course, called 'Russians' or 'Russian-Ukrainians', whatever that is!):  "Important".

Europeans won't be able to live in nuclear rubble, They have not prepared their nations to live underground.  Russia on the other hand has been preparing to go to ground if and when that time happens."
If Europe wasn't run by such Euro-trash, everybody involved in this warmongering stunt would be rounded up and jailed for decades.  I'd charge them with conspiracy to attempt mass murder.

Tweet (Charles Shoebridge):
"The statement of Yulia #Skripal may be entirely genuine. But if such similarly rehearsed words had been said in a similar way by a UK citizen in the ‘protective custody’ of #Russia, US UK govts & media would very quickly claim they’d been said under duress"
It is exactly like the statements ISIS/al Qaeda hostages are forced to read.  It is a wonder they didn't put her in an orange jumpsuit.  Lucky for her, the British IC probably feels her organs are too poisonous to eat.  Speaking of which, an alleged 'terrorist'/freedom fighter in Canada took a polygraph, and was apparently flummoxed when they asked him if he preferred the human heart or spleen as a snack:  "Canadian ISIS fighter at heart of NYT podcast says RCMP gave him a lie detector test".  To be fair, it is a difficult question, and he was allegedly more of a head-lopper than a human organ eater.  Related (and important!):  "One Year On – The Truth About The Manchester Bombing Scorpion" (Nick for The Saker Blog):
"Press coverage of the trial confirmed that Abdullah and his friends joined the terror group after fighting in Libya in 2011. But the same mainstream media carefully avoided the fact that the Manchester terror cell to which Abdullah, and his close friend Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, belonged was formed as a direct result of the British government and security services trying to use radical Muslims as weapons to achieve ‘regime change’ in Libya.

The Daily Mail was among the media outlets that reported on the conviction of Mohammed Abdallah:

“Footage has emerged of the jihadi linked to the Manchester Arena bomber fighting with militants in Libya before he tried to become an ISIS sniper.

“Mohammed Abdallah and his brother Abdalraouf were at the centre of a Manchester-based terror network which included Salman Abedi, who killed 22 at the Ariana Grande concert earlier this year.

“As unemployed former drug dealer Abdallah was jailed for 10 years today, footage showed him and his brother during a spell they spent in Libya fighting along militants in the country’s civil war.

“The brothers, who grew up in Manchester had dual Libyan nationality, joined the ‘Tripoli Brigade’ when the North African country fell apart in 2011.”

Hold it right there! Because the Tripoli Brigade was not some random bunch of Jihadi crazies. It was a part of the so-called National Liberation Army, the umbrella force organised to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. The NLA was the ground-force backed by none other than David Cameron, who turned the RAF into the air arm of the Islamist rebellion.

It was founded, organised and led by Mahdi al-Harati, a Libyan-Irish citizen. It was armed by the CIA, through the American puppet regime in Qatar. The brigade included officers who had lived most of their lives in English speaking countries including Ireland, Canada, UK and the US.

An article in Ireland’s Sunday World drew attention to relations between Mahdi al-Harati and an unnamed US intelligence agency.

According to the article on November 6, 2011, €200,000 in cash was stolen from al-Harati’s Dublin house a month previously.

The Sunday World reported that a criminal gang working the area found two envelopes stuffed with €500 notes during a raid on the al-Harati’s family home, October 6.

The article, apparently relying on police sources, stated that al-Harati, who has been a Dublin resident employed as an Arabic teacher for 20 years, claimed, when contacted by police, that the stolen cash was “given to him by an American intelligence agency.”"
and (reminds me of 9/11!):
"As he was travelling back to Libya in May 2011 he was approached by two counter-terrorism police officers in the departure lounge who told him that if he was going to fight he would be committing a crime.

But after providing them with the name and phone number of the MI5 officer he had spoken to previously, and following a quick phone call to him, he was waved through.

“As he waited to board the plane, he said the same MI5 officer called him to tell him that he had ‘sorted it out’.”"
Breaking the weird extraterritorial application of insane, beshekeled, American law, which has to happen sometime and might as well happen now, is the main issue in the Iran sanctions.

"Mike Pompeo claims Iran carrying out 'assassination operations' in Europe".  He just made this up, but it is weirdly like actual Mossad assassination operations in Iran (and the Burgas attack was an obvious Israeli false-flag directed at Hezbollah's relationship to Europe).

"As US Tries to Remake Rather than Rebuild Northern Syria, Local Resistance Groups Emerge " (Webb).  The world, and Americans, need to see a lot of American troops in body bags as quickly as possible.  Perhaps the Iraqis could kindly supply, as a humanitarian gesture, some IED experts.

Bibi gets his answer:  "Pullout of Iranian Forces, Hezbollah Units From Syria Out of Question - Damascus".  Note:
"The international coalition led by the United States has deliberately bombed oil wells in Syria, so that the government would not be able to use them, Mikdad said.

"They made it necessary to spend tens of millions of dollars to resume work at these [oil] fields," Mikdad added."
"Syrian official rejects US demand for Iranian withdrawal" (Isachenkov).

"Falsely accusing Palestinians of anti-Semitism is malicious" (Salaita).  Getting involved in this discussion just plays into the Khazar game (just as 'denying' - note the weird choice of words - the Holocaust is the best thing you can do for them).  We need to get to the point where being an 'anti-Semite' - again, totally nuts as a term as it refers to people who are woke about a supremacist conspiracy run by people who aren't Semites! -  is the most distinguished and honorable thing anyone could aspire to be.  There needs to be something like the Nobel Peace Prize, given annually to the world's finest anti-Semite.

I'll just leave this here:  "Image Of Jewish Temple Photoshopped Over Jerusalem Mosque Embroils US Embassy In Controversy" (Durden).

"Report: Angola's envoy to Israel fired for attending embassy opening".  Fired "for harming Angola's good reputation".

You've got to love that Roth, who chronicled #metoo amongst the Khazars like no other (but is, as usual, highly overrated as a novelist by the Khazar-controlled Litarary Criticism Industrial Complex), and decades before the Great Shiksa Progrom of 2017-2018, never got his Nobel as the awarding apparatus had its own #metoo moment.

"Israeli Parliament Reportedly Considers Promoting Kurdish State".  They've been 'promoting' a Kurdish state - an integral part of Yinon - for years.

"Rudy Giuliani won deal for OxyContin maker to continue sales of drug behind opioid deaths" (McGreal):
"But Giuliani and his team seemed to be also working their Washington contacts. The Purdue lawyers complained to the office of the then deputy attorney general, James Comey, whose tenure as head of the FBI lay ahead of him, that Brownlee was exceeding his legal authority in pursuit of documents from the company.

“The defence lawyers contacted Mr Comey unbeknownst to us and said those guys down there are crazy,” said Brownlee. The US attorney went to Washington to explain to Comey in person. Purdue was not instantly recognizable as a pharmaceutical company to most people in DC. The name was easily mistaken for Perdue Farms, a regional chicken producer well known for its television ads featuring the owner, Frank Perdue. “Mr Comey said, why are you prosecuting the chicken guy?” said Brownlee."
There must have been a big party when the huge bags of shekels arrived at the PMO:  "At the U.N., Trudeau Opposes an Investigation into Israel’s Shooting of Unarmed Civilians – Including a Canadian Doctor" (Lascaris).  Justin's surprising initial remarks must have been a play to get more shekels.

I swear that Trudeau's going to segue directly from ridiculous over-the-top virtue-signaling over identity politics to sending in the Canadian army to murder natives for righteously protesting against an already obsolete pipeline owned by a company from Texas (and that nobody, except for the 'socialist' government of Alberta, actually wants!):  "The Dispossession of Canada’s First Nations and the Kinder Morgan Pipeline" (Petersen).  He's even going to pay the Texans billions for their inconvenience in having to wait for Canadian political discussion of the issue.  Of course, the bigger story is the Canadian government really wants to break the pattern that the US is the only buyer for oil sands oil, and move a lot of it to China (a plan with massive environmental dangers).

Concentration camp guard discusses concentration camp inmate (not to be read if you are prone to projectile vomiting):  "John McCain’s Greatest Fear" (Goldberg).

Trump, who was off to a rocky start but generally held it together, has suddenly, and totally, gone off the rails on multiple fronts:  "President Bolton Announces the Korea Summit May be Canceled" (Anglin):
"President John Bolton, through his puppet-figure Donald Trump, former star of “The Apprentice” who now does a heavily scripted reality TV show called “Wars for Jews” which runs on all television networks and is produced and directed by President Bolton, has announced that he may be canceling the Korea summit – because reasons."
"Today's Blind Items - Which One" (CDaN). The guesses:

Novichok, the new health food

"Philip Cross Madness Part IV" (Murray).  This is interesting as it appears that the hasbara troll farm known as 'Philip Cross' has some kind of insider access to alerts from Wikipedia on any truth that needs to be stomped down, even in odd places you wouldn't expect them to find (which access would explain the airy dismissals from Wales).

Tweet (George Galloway).  One of the problems of using a front to cover for your hasbara is that it is difficult to mount a defense of an fictitious entity.

"Antifa or Antiwar: Leftist Exclusionism Against the Quest for Peace" (Johnstone).  It is not surprising that the usual suspects would want to infiltrate and ruin Counterpunch, but the attempt is so obvious that it is disappointing that the editors would let it happen.  Note how much of this attack turns around a guy named Yoav Litvin (and other practitioners of the 'dialectic' pop up throughout).  What is that, a Somali name, Fiji Islander, perhaps Irish?  I think Draitser is a traditional Maori name.  You have to laugh.

"FBI Informant Stefan Halper Paid Over $1 Million By Obama Admin; Spied On Trump Aide After Election" (Durden).  The three baseline facts about Trump running for President:

  1. everybody assumed his chances of winning even the nomination, let alone President, were somewhere around 0% (remember the guffaws when Coulter named him as the front-runner at being nominated?);
  2. he was so hated by both Democrats and Republicans that he had to make his campaign staff up out the various dregs and riff-raff who hang around Washington;
  3. his campaign was so disorganized there was absolutely no vetting of anybody who offered to help.

"Peace with a price: Iran promises EU to adhere to nuke deal on one condition".  Does the EU have enough money to pay the American fines?  This is shaping up to be a critically important game of chicken, and Trump has shown himself to be reasonable after receiving an education outside his inner circle.  Lurking around the discussion is that big American companies could find themselves permanently excluded from the biggest profit-making opportunities in the world, just to satisfy a tiny band of supremacists.  Of course, Trump is also further endangering the status of the dollar as world reserve currency, and once that ends the printing presses have to slow down and a lot of old imperial bills fall due.  Iran is also a vital piece of the New Silk Road, so one way or another China is going to have to get involved.  Countries could agree that any American fines were illegal and not enforceable in their courts, and companies and banks could be set up with no American exposure for the single purpose of dealing with Iran.

"Trump Collusion: How afraid should we be of Mohammed Bin Zayed of the UAE?" (Cole):
"The pedophilia angle on Nader needs to be unpacked. Did his activities in those circles in Washington, DC, in the 1980s and 1990s allow him to discover which American politicians and even foreign dignitaries were engaging in secret pedophilia activities, and then to pass that information to foreign intelligence agencies so that these individuals could be blackmailed? It is worth noting, though no one does, that at least allegations have been made against Trump by underaged girls. If Nader had files on “colleagues” in those circles, it might explain why he kept being picked up as useful even after the Prague year in jail. He was in Iraq with Prince’s Blackwater in the 2000s, and then around 2011 suddenly pops up in Abu Dhabi as adviser to Mohammad Bin Zayed, the crown prince."

'Sources'

"Framing the Trump Campaign as Lackey's of Russia by Publius Tacitus" (my emphasis in red):
"There are still many unanswered questions, but the evidence that now is part of the public record removes any doubt that British and US Intelligence services collaborated in a devious and fabricated scheme to portray the Trump campaign as intent on collaborating with Russia. The evidence was planted and cleverly fabricated. It was done through highly classified intelligence channels, which created a paper trail and provided prima facie "evidence" that individuals with tenuous ties to the Trump campaign where seeking meetings with Russian officials. What was not reported, however, was the fact that the original impetus for those reporting on those communications originated with an individual who appears to be an MI-6 intelligence asset. His name is Joseph Mifsud and I believe that evidence ultimately will establish that he was directed to contact and then feed incriminating information to George Papadopoulos. That information became the foundation of creating a counter intelligence investigation of Donald Trump and his campaign."
and:
"When Papadopoulos communicated to persons in the Trump campaign the results of his meetings with Mifsud and Mifsud's Russian contacts, that information was relayed from the UK to America via telephone and email. Those conversations, without one doubt, were intercepted and put into a Top Secret intel reports (known in intel circles as SIGINT) by GCHQ.

It would be damning if Papadopoulos had initiated the contact with Russian sources and was lighting up the web with requests for info about Russians willing to work with or help Trump. But that did not happen. The impetus to talk about Russia originated with Mifsud, who, based on circumstantial evidence, was a British intelligence asset and was direct to target and bait Papadopoulos. It was Mifsud who raised the specter of the Russians targeting Hillary Clinton (see pp 6-7 of the Statement of Offense):

On or about April 26, 2016, defendant PAPADOPOULOS met the Professor for breakfast at a London hotel. During this meeting, the Professor told defendant PAPADOPOULOS that he had just returned from a trip to Moscow where he had met with highlevel Russian government officials. The Professor told defendant PAPADOPOULOS that on that trip he (the Professor) learned that the Russians had obtained "dirt" on then-candidate Clinton. The Professor told defendant PAPADOPOULOS, as defendant PAPADOPOULOS later described to the FBI, that "They [the Russians] have dirt on her"; "the Russians had emails ofClinton"; "they have thousands of emails."

Mifsud provided the Russian information. Not Papadopoulos. Mifsud's mission of feeding Papadopoulos "Russian intelligence," which the later then reported back to the Trump campaign produced the casus belli (of sorts) to justify opening an FBI counter intelligence investigation. The FBI also was ensnared, most likely. It does not appear the FBI was briefed immediately on these matters. Instead, John Brennan and Jim Clapper built up a pretty sizable intel file, filled with SIGINT reports from the UK's GCHQ, which contained American names and reports of efforts to broker a meeting with Vladimir Putin. Of course they (Clapper and Brennan) conveniently failed to mention to the FBI that the information originated with a UK plant. But it did provide legal cover for unmasking the identities of Trump campaign personnel.

This was not the only "information dump" in place. MI-6 also helped ensure that there was an "independent" source of intelligence--human intelligence. Hence the Steele Dossier, with the first reports being produced in June 2016. It is this combination of SIGNALS INTELLIGENCE and HUMAN INTELLIGENCE, which persuaded the FBI that something serious was going on. While it may be possible that that Comey and McCabe conspired initially with Brennan and Clapper, I do not think that is what happened. Comey and McCabe were duped by Brennan and Clapper into believing that there was actual malfeasance  underway with the Trump campaign. They were naive, even stupid, but not engaged in sedition."
The main reason this operation seems so odd is that the target wasn't Trump - he was irrelevant as he had no chance of winning - but Putin. They were trying to frame Putin for buying Trump, and used the bumbling minor functionaries in the Trump campaign to accomplish this by leading them on using various intelligence operatives.  The bait was a mythological trove of dirt on Hillary held by the Russians.

"All Russiagate Roads Lead To London: Evidence Emerges Of Joseph Mifsud’s Links To UK Intelligence" (Vos).  Mifsud had an unfortunate love, for an intelligence asset, of appearing in selfies, and an extensive and varied list of associates, often of the hinky persuasion:  "United States: who is Joseph Mifsud, the mysterious professor who put the Donald Trump team in contact with the Russians".

"The mysterious work of the Maltese professor identified in the FBI’s Russia probe" (de Haldevang) (a screamingly obvious spy front, as depicted by Hollywood in productions like 'Rubicon' and 'Three Days of the Condor'):
"LCILP didn’t respond to multiple phone and email requests for comment on this story. When a Quartz reporter visited LCILP’s headquarters inside a handsome Georgian building, he found that the office amounted to four people working in an undecorated backroom, all of whom declined to comment."
"A Spy in the House of Trump" (Raimondo) (the second link is worth reading):
"Papadopoulos’s meetings with Mifsud, and Downer, and Halper’s first approach to the Trump campaign (via Carter Page) occurred well before the FBI officially opened its investigation on July 31, 2016. A few days later the FBI sent agent Peter Strzok to London to meet with an unknown person in the Australian embassy (probably Downer). And now we are learning that the preliminary stages of the probe began well before July – in March of that year. Writing in The Federalist, Margot Cleveland asks: “But on whose behalf? And for what purpose?”"
"'The Day that We Can't Protect Human Sources': The President and the House Intelligence Committee Burn an Informant" (Lawfare).  Note how the intelligence assets who ran the entrapment operation are now described as 'sources'!  It is a very American argument deriving from Nixon - and Trump has tried it on from time to time - that the wrongdoing of various government agencies and functionaries has to be ignored as to look too hard would undermine the very foundations of these entities and positions, thus damaging their ability to keep the country running, and safe (though this kind of argument has much more consistency if applied at the executive level, with the IC, in this case, just committing unjustifiable crimes, in fact the worst kind of crimes, intended to lead to WWIII).  In fact, this entire skulduggery is beginning to sound like a reverse Watergate - of course, we now know Watergate itself was a reverse operation, a successful IC plot to remove a President, based on treasonous insiders and the President's own paranoia - with the criminal acts being committed by the IC rather than the President, and the story coming out in dribs and drabs (but Nunes and the dogged journalists working it don't get the hagiographical treatment around Watergate, just the opposite).
