Just happens / questions like that / revolutionary act

""The Holocaust" Is a Myth That Conceals Our Shame" (Barrett).  A lot of people won't read this because of its title, but it is quite good:
"If it is partly true that some Holocaust revisionists spin their histories to conceal or absolve shame—and I personally believe that National Socialist Germany’s treatment of Jews among others was in fact shameful, regardless of the extent to which the conventional history of the Holocaust may be false or exaggerated—it is obvious that the conventional story is “institutionally involved in concealing our shame.” By focusing so relentlessly on the metaphysical evil of the big-H Holocaust, our cultural custodians conceal the at least equally shameful behavior of World War II’s victors.

The real Holocaust, of course, was the war itself. 70 million people were massacred, two thirds of them civilians. Those nearly 50 million civilians were singled out for extermination on the basis of their ethnicity, just as surely as a vastly smaller number of Jews, Gypsies, and Slavs may have been by the Reich. When the Allies firebombed Dresden, which was not a military target, more than 100,000 innocent civilians were deliberately burned to death for the crime of being German. Centuries of German cultural achievement, too, went up in flames. Now that is a real holocaust: a gratuitous burnt offering.

And Dresden is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Anyone who honestly explores the history of the deliberate Allied firebombings of civilians, the respective treatment of prisoners by both sides, the atrocities against Germans during the invasion and occupation of their homeland, the firebombings and nuclear bombings of Japanese civilians, the brutal torture that elicited false confessions from “Nazi war criminals,” and so much more, will inevitably conclude that, as Pogo might say, “We have met the Nazis and they are us.”"
"US Military Attack on Venezuela Mulled by Top Trump Advisors and Latin American Officials at Private DC Meeting" (Blumenthal).  Quite the list of thugs!

Tweet (John Hudson):
"I asked Peru’s foreign minister what he might do if sanctions against Maduro start negatively impacting the humanitarian situation in Venezuela. Pompeo stepped in & said I “shouldn’t ask questions like that” & accused me of blaming the crisis on the US. I didn’t, but you decide:"
See Larison's tweet (this 'deep intent' crap extends all across the Assholian political spectrum, and ios the basis of R2P, which never dies despite consistently leaving humanitarian disasters in its bloody wake):
"Pompeo's whining is a useful window into the mindset of a certain kind of hawk. As long as he has the "deep intent" of making things better for people in Venezuela, he cannot be faulted for making things worse even if the policies he supports make things worse"
"Special Report: Massacres in Haiti – Pacifica’s Margaret Prescod".

"Roméo Dallaire and the Toronto Star’s distortion of Rwanda’s tragedy" (Engler).  Note the forged additions to the 'genocide fax'.  I can't determine if Dallaire is mentally ill (perhaps driven that way by what he did), or just your everyday monster.  The Star, though, is just your everyday monster.

"American values: Embassies are for chopping up journalists, not protecting them" (MacDonald).  Cat spy.

I'd read all of this spectacular piece (some say that the state is an entity with a monopoly on the exercise of violence, but the hegemon has a monopoly on being allowed to have secrets):  "Phoenix in Knightsbridge" (Wilkinson) (footnotes removed):
"Despite some whining about violation of “freedom of speech” or “of the Press” from all the compatible corners of the Mass Media, the actual reporting serves to distract from the key issue which made Mr Assange’s Wikileaks revolutionary (as opposed to some other apparent disclosures): namely, that unlike Edward Snowden, and more like Philip Agee, Mr Assange rejected the premise that the State has any right to secrecy at all."
and:
"Julian Assange — by refusing to recognize State claims to secrecy — performed a revolutionary act. This is what made his work significant and why he ought to be praised and where possible defended. However, he cannot be defended by people who are not, in some serious sense, revolutionaries or sincere sympathisers. (That may even mean that Mr Assange’s defenders too become targets, if only in the “C” category.) The so-called Press or as the truly vain and vacuous are fond of calling it– the Fourth Estate– are merely calling attention to their role in upholding the regime they ostensibly would criticise. In the West the “journalist” has been marketed as a kind of holy person, when, in fact, the publishing journalist is often a “cleric”, or an advertising hack, or maybe someone who has to produce the “news product” with which the Fourth Estate (the propaganda industry) maintains the Establishment and its control over the system.

Gerald Horne’s suggestion that the Enlightenment “freedoms” were essentially articulated to create an ideology for white supremacy and private ownership of non-whites goes far toward explaining the contradiction in which these “lefties” find themselves. If one really treats information as public domain and denies the State’s right to secrecy (secrecy claimed to protect “interests”) then one strikes at one of the main pillars that supports the ideology of “freedom” for whites and slavery for the rest. The “interests” that the State ostensibly protects are the desire to retain and expand the private property owned by those who own the State. Today one State on this planet claims and defends its national sovereignty, denying all others, as an exclusive and globally enforceable prerogative—it is the sovereignty over the entire “owned” world and no one else has a right to property beyond the white elite by and for whom that State was constituted.

That State includes most of what is called the Press, concentrated as it is in some five global media corporations.

The fact that the Press is a business that trades in data, variously called information, advertising, etc., means that to publish beyond the Press — as Assange did — is to challenge the ownership of information, the propaganda of property, and the privilege of those who serve these institutions calling themselves “journalists”."
and:
 "By suggesting that this is an attack on supposed “freedom of the Press” attention is being distracted (one of the jobs of the Press and its functionaries) from the crimes against humanity upon which the regime has always been based. Wikileaks breached the wall which had allowed “media courtiers” to hide their knowledge of State crimes. It validated the practice of viewing “state secrets” and deciding for oneself what the State was doing. The Press was created to praise and protect those crimes — crimes committed by Business and the State: by the ruling elite, both individually and collectively — through the manipulation of public consciousness.

The significance of Assange’s Wikileaks was that it opposed the prevailing control of information by the PRESS– through its cadres, often also known as “journalists”. Mr Assange’s release of documents and data produced by the State and the corporations for which it works has been an attempt to prove that there is evidence to discredit and condemn State/corporate action — that there is malice aforethought."
"Snowden archives memory-holed !! -- As alarming as Assange's arrest!! --Cat McGuire".  I'm almost certain that Anglin isn't part of the 'dialectic', but I am certain that Greenwald is.  Both Chomsky and Greenwald have done a lot of good work, establishing the credibility required for their real aims.  Greenwald's contradictions have reached absurdity levels:
"Since the very beginning, my sister Colleen and I have wondered what manner of subterfuge has been going on with Greenwald et al. For a long time now, a few brave critics have raised serious questions about Snowden, Poitras, Greenwald, Scahill, and Omidyar to the ire of indignant leftists who deem them all sacred cows immune to criticism. 



Over the years, a multitude of dubious actions surrounding Omidyar beg massive exposure. To wit:

  • His many connections to the NSA
  • Cutting WikiLeaks' PayPal account, and supporting the criminal prosecution of Anonymous when they hacked PayPal
  • Attempting to steal Craigslist for which in an unusual move against a corporate principle, a Delaware judge all but called Omidyar a thief
  • Helping fund the neo-nazi coup d'etat in Ukraine 
  • Detrimentally undermining women's microfinancing in India
  • After taking over Intercept and poaching star reporters, barely allowing anyone to publish their whistleblowing articles (e.g., Ken Silverstein, Matt Taibbi)
  • And much more

Past duplicity notwithstanding, this recent development of the shuttering of the Snowden docs is an unprecedented violation of the public trust. Those documents belong to the American people, no matter how deftly Omidyar purloined them -- or whatever deals-with-the-devil Greenwald et al signed on to.  As Greenwald purportedly said in December 2014 when asked why he joined forces with Omidyar, "What billionaire do you expect me to go with?" 



Why is the press silent on such a momentous issue? Why has Greenwald colluded in this outrageous new development, including the ousting of Poitras? 




With the arrest of Julian Assange, Greenwald has rightfully spoken out in strong opposition to the extradition. Nonetheless, it is the height of unseemly opportunism when Greenwald sent the attached email on April 11 to The Intercept's readers bemoaning Assage's arrest. . . and then asking readers to support free speech by donating -- not to Assange's legal defense! -- but rather to the already richly-endowed Intercept, the very organization that is abandoning the valuable assets entrusted to them by Edward Snowden, another besieged whistleblower."
Kevin Gosztola tweets on the indictment.

"Behind the Assange Saga: Radicalized by Frustration" (Arkin).  The Vault 7 stuff is the purest conspiracy theory - hacking tools to create information false flags by making it seem that cyber attacks come from the source the CIA was trying to attack (you can immediately see how this applies to various Russiagate claims of Russian involvement in 'hacking'):
"The CIA's hand crafted hacking techniques pose a problem for the agency. Each technique it has created forms a "fingerprint" that can be used by forensic investigators to attribute multiple different attacks to the same entity.
This is analogous to finding the same distinctive knife wound on multiple separate murder victims. The unique wounding style creates suspicion that a single murderer is responsible. As soon one murder in the set is solved then the other murders also find likely attribution.
The CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques 'stolen' from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.
With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the "fingerprints" of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.
UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques."
From 2010:  "Assange Accuser Worked with US-Funded, CIA-Tied Anti-Castro Group" (Murphy) (as usual, these obvious conspiracies are a tiny bit of an IQ test to see if your IQ is over 75):
"Small world, isn’t it?  Julian Assange is the human face of Wikileaks – the organization that’s enabled whistle-blowers to reveal hideous war crimes and expose much of America’s foreign policy to the world.

He just happens to meet a Swedish woman who just happens to have been publishing her work in a well-funded anti-Castro group that just happens to have links with a group led by a man at least one journalist describes as an agent of the CIA: the violent secret arm of America’s foreign policy.

And she just happens to have been expelled from Cuba, which just happens to be the global symbol of successful defiance of American foreign policy.

And – despite her work in Sweden upholding the human right of gender equity – in Cuba she just happens to end up associating with a group openly supported by an admitted CIA agent who himself committed mass murder when he actively participated in the terrorist bombing of a jetliner carrying a Cuban sports team…an act that was of a piece with America’s secret foreign policy of violent attacks against Cuban state interests.

And now she just happens – after admittedly consensual sex – to have gone to Swedish authorities to report the sex ended without a condom…which just happens to be the pretext for Interpol to issue a “Red Notice” informing the world’s police forces of charges against Julian Assange.

Who just happens to be the man America’s political class – the people who run America’s foreign policy – have been trying to silence.  And who happens to be the man some of them have been calling to have murdered.

With a lust for vengeance like that, one could be forgiven for concluding they’ve just happened to have taken a page from Anna’s revenge manual."
"In his own words: Assange’s statement" (Roddis).  The CIA-'feminists' just ruin their own credibility, on all issues.

"Pro-Israel America - Influencing American Election Outcomes".  The non-billionaire, non-((())) way to financially support the monsters.

Sometimes I think they must just be pulling our legs:  tweet (Nancy Pelosi):
"Important discussion with former Labour Party MPs , & to hear their perspective on Brexit, why they left the Labour Party, and the importance of standing unequivocally against anti-Semitism wherever it is found."
Tweet (Max Bergmann).  You get a feel for how the Assholians can be such . . . assholes (Bergmann is good for it - Center for American Progress and The Moscow Project!).  Scroll down for the replies by Dan Henri.

"Wealthy Immigrants, Netanyahu and the Movie Tycoon" (Mykytyn):
"Ostensively to encourage immigration, during the 2008 global financial slowdown, Israel enacted Amendment 168 to its tax code exempting from both tax and reporting all foreign source income (income earned outside of Israel) of new or returning residents. By so exempting newcomers, Israel made itself into a tax haven.
Amendment 168 was called the Milchan Law in honor of the man who lobbied for the amendment and, in 2009, the Tablet announced that the “fertilizer company scion-turned-movie mogul Arnon Milchan is taking advantage of the generous benefits and moving back to Israel.”
In response to the law, in 2009-2010 many an expatriate Israeli billionaire decided to return to his homeland and in 2018 Russian Jewish billionaire Roman Abramovich became an Israeli citizen and instantly became the country’s wealthiest citizen with a net worth, according to Forbes, of $11.5 billion.
The provision may be a factor in the outsized number of millionaire immigrants to Israel In 2015 over 4000 millionaires moved to Israel, more than 10% of that year’s 31,013 immigrants. In fact, Israel was fourth in millionaire inflow — after Australia, the United States and Canada, in that order.
Haaretz called for a repeal to the exemption noting that it provides a “clear benefit to the billionaires who save on taxes for 10 years… [and] enjoy the fog of not having to report for 10 years – a fog that gives them time to conceal their assets and profits.” This benefit is paid for “by the citizens of countries where billionaires no longer have to pay taxes, and the citizens of Israel, who don’t benefit from a tax on the billionaires’ income.”
Israel’s Tax Authority Director, General Moshe Asher, said Milchan’s law made Israel into one of the world’s “most generous tax havens.” Asher defined a  tax haven as a place where a) one doesn’t pay taxes and b) there is an exemption from reporting one’s income. And, Asher pointed out: “In Israel we have something extra. We have an expansive network of tax treaties with developed countries that a typical offshore tax haven does not have. [This means that the immigrant] would pay no taxes abroad because of the tax treaty with Israel, and no taxes in Israel because of the law here.”
Israel’s state comptroller worried that the Amendment gave immigrants an incentive to launder money or to use money that was laundered abroad, “activities which may encourage crime and damage the integrity of Israeli society and the economy.” In 2014, an audit of 600 bank accounts belonging to recent immigrants found one hundred accounts to have irregular activity that caused the bank to flag them for suspected money laundering.
The reporting exemption also prevents Israel from honoring its 2013 commitment to follow OECD rules and share tax information with other countries. But each year since 2014, a provision canceling the reporting exemption has been included in legislation and each year it has been removed before the legislation was even voted on.
Despite these issues, Netanyahu attempted to increase the exemption period to 20 years in a move that would have helped Milchan but was rejected by the Finance Ministry. The Attorney General has accused Netanyahu of seeking the extension on Milchan’s behalf."
"The Betrayal Of Brexit Is A Mix Of Social Engineering And Mock Elections" (Korybko). The most obvious conspiracy around.  May is not even trying to hide it (though the (((media))) plays along by blaming everything on her 'incompetence').  Farange is attempting to save Britain (again) by threatening the Conservatives with splitting the right-wing vote if they don't stop the tricks:  "Nigel Farage launches Brexit Party ahead of European elections".

"Polls Show That Macron’s Great National Debate Flopped".  The Rothschild stunt didn't stop the goyim knowing.

"Thoughts on the Protected Race " (Joyce).  Things seem particularly grim right now, but 1000s of years of history show that the sun will, eventually, rise.

"Hague Court Caves To US Threats: Rejects Afghan War Crimes Case" (Durden).  The Zionist Criminal Court has reached Peak Joke.

"Malaysia to free Vietnamese woman accused of Kim Jong Nam murder on May 3: lawyer" (Rothchilds).

Gabbard is on another planet from all other American politicians (including Bernie) when it comes to boldly stating truths about American foreign policy:  "Tulsi Gabbard Calls Out Potatus on Twitter, Only Matter of Time Until He Lashes Out!" (Batty). She's the only serious candidate.

"Democrats Pursue Hoax Scandals Against Trump While Ignoring Treasonous Activities Involving the Jew Jared Kushner and Israel" (Rogers):
"They are pushing this nonsense while intentionally ignoring the very real scandal involving Trump’s Jew son-in-law Jared Kushner. The fact that Trump ordered Kushner be given a high level security clearance, despite all sorts of reasonable objections from career professionals, is something that deserves a real investigation.
Washington Examiner:
A White House security specialist was suspended for two weeks without pay days after a report came out that said Jared Kushner’s security clearance had been approved despite objections of career staff.
Tricia Newbold, the suspended specialist, has a rare form of dwarfism and had accused her supervisor Carl Kline of moving files to a new location out of her reach in December 2017. She filed a discrimination complaint against her boss three months ago, according to NBC News. Newbold alleged Kline told her she could ask someone to get the files she needed as a solution.
Security office chief Crede Bailey proposed Newbold’s suspension on Dec. 3.
The complaint against Kline was mentioned in an NBC News report last week that revealed he approved Kushner’s top secret security clearance despite two unnamed career White House security specialists denying the president’s son-in-law and adviser the clearance over concerns about potential foreign influence on him.
So they were concerned about potential foreign influence on him. It’s obvious to see why. Having this Jew Kushner in such a high level position is no different than having an Israeli Mossad asset in the White House. The recently released book Kushner, Inc. by Vicky Ward documents Kushner’s extensive connections to Israel. Anglin has already written a series of articles summarizing some of the book’s more important content.
Of course you could theoretically accuse any Jew of being a foreign agent of Israel. The thing is, it is especially true with a Jew like Kushner. This is a Jew who has substantial wealth and political connections. He has been the main individual responsible for transforming Trump’s MAGA agenda into a MIGA agenda.
Let’s again review all the things Trump has done for Israel. It seems like every week we have to add a new item to the list.
  • Recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
  • Recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the American embassy there.
  • Provided billions of dollars in foreign aid to Israel.
  • Cut foreign aid to the Palestinians.
  • Completely cut all formal relations with Palestine.
  • Attacked Syria twice over fake gas attack footage.
  • Criticized Ilhan Omar as an anti-Semite for saying that the pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC exists.
  • Spent a good part of his recent State of the Union speech reminding people of the Jewish Holocaust hoax.
  • Established a major arms deal to Saudi Arabia to help counter Iran, Israel’s main regional enemy.
  • Implemented sanctions on Iran and pulled out of the Iranian nuclear deal.
  • Consistently defended Israel at the United Nations.
  • Declared Iran’s military a terrorist organization at Benjamin Netanyahu’s request.
  • Supported Netanyahu’s annexation of West Bank settlements.
At this rate, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Trump send Israel billions of dollars so the Third Jewish Temple can be built. That’s how insane the shilling for Israel has become."
