Morally abhorrent

"The US & Nicaragua: a Case Study in Historical Amnesia & Blindness" (Kovalik).  The mysterious snipers, just like at the Maidan, seem to be the new technique.  The other noticeable feature, part of The Clarification, but not new, is that the US 'left', even those of which who should know better, sides with the CIA.

"Tales of North Korean Abuses: No Facts, All Fiction" (Cartalucci).  Another technique, as old as the CIA, is spreading CIA propaganda by 'journalists' posing as well meaning proponents of 'human rights'.

"The Babchenko False Flag Exposed The Deep State-Journalist Nexus" (Korybko):
"By now it’s taken for granted that some journalists clandestinely cooperate, and even coordinate their activities, with their de-facto handlers from the permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies after witnessing how the media waged its infowar against Trump over the past 3 years, but Babchenko’s false flag “assassination” introduced a new dimension into all of this.

Surprisingly, the US-funded “Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty” platform reported that the staged photo of his “killing” was “first published on the Facebook page of a former Ukrainian reporter who says he now works for a shadowy consultancy organization based in the Washington, D.C., area”.

The only way that he could have received that was from a member of the Ukrainian “deep state” itself, which passed it along to their DC-based asset with the intent of “laundering” the picture through social media and making it “organically” go viral, representing yet another level of collaboration between the “deep state” and so-called “journalists”.

Altogether, this false flag involved two separate, but interconnected, influence operations through willing journalist participants, the first and most obvious being Babchenko himself – who can be described more as an information provocateur and even a troll instead of a journalist – and the second DC-based individual who laundered the fake pic of Babchenko’s ”assassination”."
 Tweet (Adam H. Johnson):
"you have to read the fine print to see beyond their moral preening but the WaPo editorial board has opposed all measures to actually end the US/UK/Saudi bombing of Yemen. Now it acts like a bunch of bleeding heart humanitarians. Peak liberal militarism."
"They Want to Cut the Main Vein of Yemen. US Supported Naval Blockade, Widespread Famine".  "Deadly siege of Yemeni port of Hodeidah begins with Washington’s aid and approval" (Van Auken).  "The Saudi-UAE Alliance is the Most Dangerous Force in the Middle East Today" (Bandow).  ""No Escape": Don't Expect A Yemeni Version Of The White Helmets" (Durden).  As usual, the Houthis are all on their own on this one, and will have to fight their way out, hopefully by posing a real military threat to MbS and the Saudi royals (if MbS is indeed still alive - or is that Putin smirking along with a body double?).  It appears that MbZ actually intends to steal the port.

"Desperate Poroshenko Calls Putin as War Stakes Escalate" (Popov).  I hate to say it, but it is possible that Poroshenko is a sane, patriotic guy who realizes that Ukraine is being used as a puppet to start a WWIII which is not in its best interests, and realizes he needs Putin's help to manoeuvre amongst the traitors around him.

Tweet (Michael Tracey):
"Finally Democratic senators exercise their oversight powers to ensure that Trump doesn't... withdraw troops from Korea? Amazing"
"In Their Own Words: Was Every Israeli Prime Minister A Racist?" (Inlakesh).  "The Knesset officially declares that Israeli democracy is for Jews only" (Gurvitz).  Supremacism is the thing that is never to be noticed, no matter how often the supremacists insist on it.  See also!:  "Michael Chabon’s views on intermarriage are increasingly mainstream. They are also morally abhorrent."

O Superwoman!:  "Laurie Anderson screams in Jerusalem, but has nothing to say about Gaza" (Agnon). I don't believe she's Khazar, but her husband, Lou Reed, certainly was.

"What's causing unusual bullet wounds among Gaza protesters?" (Stollar).  The non-fatal hits often require leg amputations.

My proposed game show, where the studio audience strives to tell whether a contestant is a Khazar or a psychopath, has been a complete failure as nobody can figure out how to tell the difference!:  "Gaza and the Psychopaths" (Tarrant).

"Russia, the Neoconservatives, and the Real Issues Involved" (Cathey).

"US Officially Resumes Funding For The White Helmets In Syria" (Durden).  You can track the shekel shipments as they arrive in Washington.  The Russians, who have an excellent track record at this, are predicting another false-flag chemical attack to be blamed on Assad, for which the White Helmets will be needed to produce the PR videos:  "Russia Warns "Credible Information" Of Impending Staged Chemical Attack In Syria" (Durden).

"Torture, starvation, executions: Eastern Ghouta civilians talk of life under terrorist rule" (Bartlett).

"NATO’s Terrorist Bases in Europe" (Madsen).  MEK, for which both Bolton and Giuliani work for pay.  MEK, and some terrorism in South and Central America, are the clearest demonstration of how utterly bogus the GWOT really is.

"Can the EU Become a Partner for Russia?" (The Saker).  "Is Europe Too Brainwashed To Normalize Relations With Russia?" (Roberts).  There is a massive structural problem, with all the worst Eurotrash politicians at the top of party 'lists', or appointed by those at the top of party 'lists', thus completely insulated from any possible electoral consequences - note how the Ontario Liberal party was just completely extinguished in the latest Ontario first-past-the-post elections, ruining the best job most of the members could ever hope to have - and can just lay around and take the most appealing bribes without any fear of repercussions.  It is not brainwashing - everybody knows what the only long- and short-term rational decision is - it is just corruption encouraged by utterly incompetently devised political systems (specifically imposed by the Americans after WWII to emasculate Europe, as Europeans were considered, not without reason, to be incapable of governing themselves, systems so terrible, but so successful from the point of view of oligarchs, that they are considered the political science gold standard to apply everywhere else!).

"Arron Banks Scandal: ‘Investigating’ Non-Events to Smear Russia" (Cloughley).

The red bag:  "Joining Some Dots on the Skripal Case: Part 5 – An Educated Guess" (Slane).

"War on Iran is US Policy Now According to US Secretary of State" (Boardman).

"The Trump-Kim Deal Is the First Example of the “New Washington Consensus”" (Korybko).  Writing geopolitics on the basis that the Americans have big, rational, intellectual plans to deal with their imperial collapse, and are capable of following these plans, is a business fraught with peril.

"Of Carrots, Sticks, And How The Empire Fails" (Luongo):
"Once you start with sanctions and threats, you can’t stop.  It’s go all the way or have your bluff called.  With Europe Trump holds aces.  They are dependent on the U.S. and their weakness will be the U.S.’s gain over the next year or two.  Europe’s sovereign debt crisis will explode and the U.S. will see massive foreign in-flows.

It’ll be a massive win but it won’t be the win.  And in winning over Europe it sets him up for the big loss; the fight for the Middle East and Eurasian integration.

His gambit with Russia and Iran becoming an all-or-nothing proposition.  Trump has just about pushed all-in.  Russia/Iran/China’s passivity has emboldened him. The fecklessness of the Obama administration creating dumpster fires in Ukraine and Syria, however, handed him bad cards and a dwindling stack.

He hasn’t won a hand in the Middle East yet.  Sure he’s made headlines but Putin, Rouhani, Nasrallah and Assad have won all the skirmishes that matter.  Any wins Trump has gotten were easy ones to pick up.  The framework for a deal has always been the same.  And no amount of Kissinger-style complications were going to change them.

Iran no more wants to stay in Syria than Putin wants to intervene in The Donbass. So, getting Iran out of Syria is easy.  All Trump has to do is leave.  Israel won’t like it, but it won’t be their decision.  Putin made that clear to Netanyahu when he visited Moscow.

The Kurds are the ones to make that decision for Trump, now that they are openly negotiating with Damascus after Trump backstabbed them over Manbij.

Without the support of the Kurds, the U.S. cannot stay in Syria at all.

So, when we reach the showdown hand Trump won’t have aces.  And the classic Russian cauldron will collapse in around him.  And losing there will be the end of the U.S. empire abroad.

And the world will rejoice."
