Year of pain

"PATRICK LAWRENCE: Trump’s Foreign Policy Explained".  How the Deep State flattened Trump's 'art of the deal' attempts at diplomacy, largely through having his traitorous appointments subvert his efforts at sanity.  Once the stupid is done, Trump then had to pretend it was what he intended all along, or look like a powerless fool.

The record:  "Grading Trump on Foreign Policy" (Kuzmarov).

"Saudi severe Violations of Human Rights Law pose Challenge to new Biden Administration" (Rakipoglu).  For a country that does nothing except pump oil, they sure punch above their weight in the human rights abuse department.

"Merry Christmas – Your Account Has Been Suspended: Update & Cry for Help" (Illingworth).  The mysteries of the Twitter banhammer, and systematic social media effective censoring of any leftish thoughts.  Again, who thought it was a good idea to give these billionaires full control over allowed speech?

"There Goes the Neighborhood: What really caused the decline of 18th & Vine" (Larson).  The process by which political reform and 'progress' leads to destruction.  I've been thinking about that Hudson material from yesterday and wondering what possible steps could be taken to start to fix it, and I'm stumped.  Once the entire society and economy is gummed up by debt and rent-seeking, there is no hope.  You can't get there from here.  A jubilee might be a good start, but where is the political will for that?

"In a year of pain, one silver lining: fewer mass shootings" (Pane).  The mass shooters were too depressed to be bothered, and everybody was working from home.

"Stereotype Shattering Black Serial Killer Dies After Murdering Up to 93" (Sailer). The first profilers believed serial killers were all white.  I expect Sailer will be all over this story.

On birth certificates:  "The New Dark Ages" (Arnavi):
"The medical community has abandoned its primary mission of caring for the health of individuals based on the scientific method, pursuing evidence and truth wherever they lead. Instead, much as the medieval Catholic Church shut down Galileo, the modern-day woke leftist church shuts down any theories or research running counter to their holy doctrine. We are sadly moving back toward the dark ages. The authors of “Rethinking Sex Designations on Birth Certificates” have shrugged off the mantle of science and replaced it with that of social justice. At a time of global health crisis, when confidence in our public health leadership and institutions is both lacking and of paramount importance, it behooves every physician to cry foul and restore some semblance of credibility to the medical profession."
Tweet (Ali Abunimah) (Khleptomaniacs):
"Israeli media report that just weeks after direct flights started, Israeli tourists in Dubai steal anything that's not nailed down from hotels rooms... Did they not get the government training on how to give Israel a good impression when going abroad?"

Hard look

 "A Hard Look at Rent and Rent Seeking with Michael Hudson & Pepe Escobar":

"Michael Hudson:  . . . I think you have to frame the whole issue that China is thriving, and the West has reached the end of the whole 75-year expansion it had since 1945.

So, there was an illusion that America is de-industrializing because of competition from China. And the reality is there is no way that America can re-industrialize and regain its export markets with the way that it’s organized today. Financialized and privatized and if China didn’t exist. You’d still have the rust belt rusting out. You’d still have American industry not being able to compete abroad simply because the cost structure is so high in the United States.

The wealth is no longer made here by industrializing. It’s made financially, mainly by making capital gains. Rising prices for real estate or for stocks and for bonds.  In the last nine months, since the coronavirus came here, the top 1% of the U S economy grew by $1 trillion. It’s been a windfall for the 1%. The stock market is way up, the bond market is up, he real estate market is up while the rest of the economy is going down. Despite the tariffs that Trump put on, Chinese imports, trade with China is going up because we’re just not producing materials.

America doesn’t make its own shoes. It doesn’t make its own nuts and bolts or fasteners, it doesn’t make industrial things anymore because If money is to be made off an industrial company it’s to buy and sell the company, not to make loans to increase the company’s production. New York City where I live used to be an industrial city and, the industrial buildings, the mercantile buildings have all been gentrified into high-priced real estate and the result is that Americans have to pay so much money on education, rent and medical care that if they got all of their physical needs, their food, their clothing, all the goods and services for nothing, they still couldn’t compete with foreign labor because of all of the costs that they have to pay that are essentially called rent-seeking.

Housing in the United States now absorbs about 40% of the average worker’s paycheck. There’s a 15% taken off the top of paychecks for pensions, Social Security and for Medicare. Further medical insurance adds more to the paycheck, income taxes and sales taxes add about another 10%. Then you have student loans and bank debt. So basically, the American worker can only spend about one third of his or her income on buying the goods and services they produce. All the rest goes into the fire sector, the finance insurance, and real estate sector and other monopolies.

And essentially, we became what’s called a rent-seeking economy, not a productive economy. So, when people in Washington talk about American capitalism versus Chinese socialism this is confusing the issue. What kind of capitalism are we talking about? America used to have industrial capitalism in the 19th century. That’s how it got richer originally, but now it’s moved away from industrial capitalism towards finance capitalism. And what that means is that the mixed economy that made America rich. The government would invest in education and infrastructure and transportation and provide these at low costs so that the employers didn’t have to pay labor more to afford high financialized and privatized costs of living.

All of this has been transformed over the last hundred years. And we’ve moved away from the ethic of what was industrial capitalism. Before, the idea of capitalism in the 19th century – from Adam Smith to Ricardo, to John Stuart Mill to Marx – was very clear. Marx stated it quite clearly – Capitalism was revolutionary: It was to get rid of the landlord class. It was to get rid of the rentier class. It was to get rid of the banking class essentially, and just bear all the costs that were unnecessary for production, because how did England and America and Germany gain their markets?

They gained their markets basically by the government picking up a lot of the costs of the economy. The government in America provided low-cost education, not student debt. It provided transportation at subsidized prices. It provided basic infrastructure at low cost. And so, government infrastructure was considered a fourth factor of production.

And if you read what the business schools in the late 19th century taught like Simon Patten at the Wharton School, it’s very much like socialism. In fact, it’s very much like what China is doing. And in fact, China is following in the last 30 or 40 years pretty much the same way of getting rich that America followed.

It had its government fund basic infrastructure. It provides, low-cost education. It invests in high speed railroads and airports, in the building of cities. So, the government bears most of the costs and, that means that employers don’t have to pay workers enough to pay a student loan debt. They don’t have to pay workers enough to pay enormous rent such as you have in the United States.  They don’t have to pay workers to save for a pension fund, to pay the pension later on[1]. And most of all the Chinese economy doesn’t really have to pay a banking class because banking is the most important public utility of all.  Banking is what China has kept in the hands of government and Chinese banks don’t lend for the same reasons that American banks lend.

80% of American bank loans are mortgage loans to real estate and the effect of loosening loan standards and increasing the market for real estate is to push up the cost of living, push up the cost of housing. So, Americans have to pay more and more money for their housing, whether they’re renters or they’re buyers, in which case the rent is for paying mortgage interest.

So, all of this cost structure has been built into the economy. China’s been able pretty much, to avoid all of this, because its objective in banking is not to make a profit and interest, not to make capital gains and speculation. It creates money to fund actual means of production to build factories, to build research and development, to build transportation facilities, and to build infrastructure. Banks in America don’t lend for that kind of thing.

They only lend against collateral that’s already in place,because they won’t make a loan if it’s not backed by collateral. Well, China creates money through its public banks to createcapital, to create the means of production. So, you have a diametric opposite philosophy of how to develop between the United States and China.

The United States has decided not to gain wealth by actually investing in means of production and producing goods and services, but in financial ways. China is gaining wealth and the old-fashioned way actually by producing it. And whether you call this, industrial capitalism or a state capitalism or a state socialism or Marxism, it basically follows the same logic of real economics, the real economy, not the financial overhead.  So you have China operating as a real economy, increasing its production, becoming the workshop of the world as England used to be called. And America trying to draw in foreign resources, live off of foreign resources, live by trying to make money by investing in the Chinese stock market or now, moving investment banks into China and making loans to China, not in actual industrial-capitalism ways.

So, you could say that America has gone beyond industrial capitalism, and they call it the post-industrial society, but you could call it the neo-feudal society. You could call it the neo-rentier society, or you could call it debt peonage. But it’s not industrial capitalism.

And in that sense, there’s no rivalry between China and America. These are different systems going their own way."

and:
"Michael: Well, here’s the problem right now, they know that Biden is pushing militarily aggressive people in his cabinet. There’s one kind of overhead that China is really trying to avoid and that’s the military overhead because if you spend money on the military, you can’t spend it on the real economy. They’re very worried about the military and they say, how do we deter the Biden administration from actually trying a military adventure in the China sea or elsewhere. They said well, fortunately America is multilayered. They don’t think of America as a group. They realize there’s a layer and they say, who’s going to represent our interests. 

Well, Blackstone and Wall Street are going to represent their interests. Then I think one of the, Chinese officials last week gave a big speech on this very thing, saying look, our best hope in stopping America’s military adventurism in China is to have Wall Street acting as our support because after all, Wall Street is the main campaign contributor and the president works for the campaign contributors.

The politician works for the campaign contributors. They’re in it for the money! So fortunately, we have Wall Street on our side, we’ve got control of the political system and they’re not there to go to war so that helps explain why a month ago they let a wholly owned US banks and bankers in. On the one hand, they don’t like the idea of somebody outside the government creating credit for reasons that the economy doesn’t need. If they kind of needed it, the bank of China would do it. They have no need for foreign currency to come in to make loans in domestic currency, out of China.

The only reason that they could do it is number one, it helps meet the world trade organization’s principles and, number two especially during this formative few months of the Biden administration, it helps to have Wall Street saying; we can make a fortune in China, go easy on them and that essentially counters the military hawks in Washington."
and (on financing Belt and Road):
". . . China says, you know you don’t have to pay currency for this debt. We didn’t build a railroad to make a profit and you want, we can print all the currency we want. We don’t need to make a profit. We made the Belt and Road because it’s part of our geopolitical attempt to create what we need to be prosperous and have a prosperous region. So, these are self-reinforcing mutual gain. Well, so that’s what the West doesn’t get – Mutual gain?  Are we talking anthropology? What do you mean mutual? This is capitalism! So, the West doesn’t understand what the original aim of the Belt and Road was, and it wasn’t to make a profitable railroad to enable people to buy and sell railway stocks. And it wasn’t to make toll roads to sell off to Goldman Sachs, you know. We’re dealing with two different economic systems, and it’s very hard for one system to understand the other system because of the tunnel vision that you get when you get a degree in economics."

Pussy riot

"The Threat of Authoritarianism in the U.S. is Very Real, and Has Nothing To Do With Trump" (Greenwald): 

"Asserting that Donald Trump is a fascist-like dictator threatening the previously sturdy foundations of U.S. democracy has been a virtual requirement over the last four years to obtain entrance to cable news Green Rooms, sinecures as mainstream newspaper columnists, and popularity in faculty lounges. Yet it has proven to be a preposterous farce.

In 2020 alone, Trump had two perfectly crafted opportunities to seize authoritarian power — a global health pandemic and sprawling protests and sustained riots throughout American cities — and yet did virtually nothing to exploit those opportunities. Actual would-be despots such as Hungary’s Viktor Orbán quickly seized on the virus to declare martial law, while even prior U.S. presidents, to say nothing of foreign tyrants, have used the pretext of much less civil unrest than what we saw this summer to deploy the military in the streets to pacify their own citizenry.

But early in the pandemic, Trump was criticized, especially by Democrats, for failing to assert the draconian powers he had, such as commandeering the means of industrial production under the Defense Production Act of 1950, invoked by Truman to force industry to produce materials needed for the Korean War. In March, The Washington Post reported that “Governors, Democrats in Congress and some Senate Republicans have been urging Trump for at least a week to invoke the act, and his potential 2020 opponent, Joe Biden, came out in favor of it, too,” yet “Trump [gave] a variety of reasons for not doing so.” Rejecting demands to exploit a public health pandemic to assert extraordinary powers is not exactly what one expects from a striving dictator.

A similar dynamic prevailed during the sustained protests and riots that erupted after the killing of George Floyd. While conservatives such as Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK), in his controversial New York Times op-ed, urged the mass deployment of the military to quell the protesters, and while Trump threatened to deploy them if governors failed to pacify the riots, Trump failed to order anything more than a few isolated, symbolic gestures such as having troops use tear gas to clear out protesters from Lafayette Park for his now-notorious walk to a church, provoking harsh criticism from the right, including Fox News, for failing to use more aggressive force to restore order.

Virtually every prediction expressed by those who pushed this doomsday narrative of Trump as a rising dictator — usually with great profit for themselves — never materialized. While Trump radically escalated bombing campaigns he inherited from Bush and Obama, he started no new wars. When his policies were declared by courts to be unconstitutional, he either revised them to comport with judicial requirements (as in the case of his “Muslim ban”) or withdrew them (as in the case of diverting Pentagon funds to build his wall). No journalists were jailed for criticizing or reporting negatively on Trump, let alone killed, as was endlessly predicted and sometimes even implied. Bashing Trump was far more likely to yield best-selling books, social media stardom and new contracts as cable news “analysts” than interment in gulags or state reprisals. There were no Proud Boy insurrections or right-wing militias waging civil war in U.S. cities. Boastful and bizarre tweets aside, Trump’s administration was for more a continuation of the U.S. political tradition than a radical departure from it.

The hysterical Trump-as-despot script was all melodrama, a ploy for profits and ratings, and, most of all, a potent instrument to distract from the neoliberal ideology that gave rise to Trump in the first place by causing so much wreckage. Positing Trump as a grand aberration from U.S. politics and as the prime author of America’s woes — rather than what he was: a perfectly predictable extension of U.S politics and a symptom of preexisting pathologies — enabled those who have so much blood and economic destruction on their hands not only to evade responsibility for what they did, but to rehabilitate themselves as the guardians of freedom and prosperity and, ultimately, catapult themselves back into power. As of January 20, that is exactly where they will reside."
Trump took all blame for all things, real and imagined, and thus replaced any criticism of the system, for the last four years.

The new thing, (((media))) doxxing, which I guess CNN started but the JYT is taking to new depths:  tweet (Glenn Greenwald) (of course, all built on the model developed for 'Holocaust deniers'):
"This has become a cottage industry: teenagers monitoring each other's speech, turning each other in for transgressions, trying to ruin each other's lives. So toxic. Some have become social media stars doing it. 
But it only works because adults created a climate that rewards it."
Tweet (Zaid Jilani):
"When I was at ThinkProgress we had an informal rule against critically reporting on ordinary people -- focus on power players. That New York Times rap lyric/college admissions story is one example of this taboo being blown up but there are many more, symptom of sadistic media."
Tweet (Zaid Jilani):

Why not indeed?"

"Probably the most important story of 2020 for information control was when Twitter and Facebook explicitly censored the NY Post's reporting about authentic Hunter Biden documents -- just censored them from the internet -- and journalists cheered."

Biden's been around long enough that he probably learned his deflection techniques - turning the question around to an ad hominem attack on the asker - from Ronald Reagan.  The 100% (((media)))/(((Social Media))) deferential self-censorship is new.

A lot of people have been predicting a last-minute illegal Trump attack on Iran.  I don't see it, for many reasons.  However, say the 'American' Khazar billionaires made him a proposal:

  1. agree to pay him and his family $5 billion;
  2. arrange for Bibi to give him sanctuary;
  3. call off the (((attack dogs))) at New York State regulators who plan to come after him tooth and nail after the inauguration (and which he can't get out of even with self-pardoning).

In return, all he has to do is nuke Tehran.  I can't completely rule it out . . .

 "Goodbye, Lebanon" (Dinh):

"So who’s winning this conflict? Obviously Israel, if you consider how their recent assaults have met with almost no retaliation, and how many Muslim nations have normalized relations with the Jewish state. Just this year, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco have done so, and soon, Oman, Pakistan and Indonesia may join them. Israel is here to stay, it’s clear, while the Axis of Resistance is economically crippled, diplomatically isolated and militarily impotent, no?

A closer look, though, will reveal that Israel’s solidity is entirely illusory, for its sugar daddy, slave and hired gun has been economically, politically, socially, intellectually and morally imploded, thanks, in large part, to the machination of Jewish power, ironically.

Driven by spite, hubris and contempt, it doesn’t know when to stop. Wagging the dog for decades, the all-too-clever tail has just about killed it. Uncle Sam has been reduced to a limp and blathering cross-dresser with less than a penny in his pockets.

Esformes was sentenced to 20 years in prison last year after swindling $1.4 billion dollars in tax payer money through Medicare fraud. Esformes’ family made a large donation to the Aleph Institute prior to Trump breaking him out of jail. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Trump ally Alan Dershowitz, both active Zionists, are being credited with the decision.

Esformes is by no means the sole beneficiary of Aleph’s special access to the Trump White House. Five of Trump’s last 24 presidential pardons were granted at the behest of Aleph, including Charles Kushner, Jared’s crooked real estate mogul father, Daniela Gozes-Wagner, another Medicare fraudster, and Mark Shapiro and Irving Stitsky, two men who schemed to raise $25 million dollars from 250 investors in a fake development project. 
It should be noted that the third defendant convicted for aiding in Shapiro and Stitsky’s scam, a Gentile named William B. Foster, was not pardoned."

From Vespasian to Trump

You have to love any analysis of religion that is grounded in horrible things we have had to learn about Jews in the past few decades, things that people used to know but we have been taught to forget:  "How Yahweh Conquered Rome" (Guyénot):

"What is the biggest Jewish lie in history? Without contest, it is the claim that Jews, of all the nations inhabiting this earth, were once “chosen” by the almighty Creator of the Universe to enlighten and rule over mankind—while all their enemies were cursed by the same Creator. What is truly bewildering is not the enormity of the lie: many individuals may feel chosen by God, and even nations have done so. But only the Jews have managed to convince billions of non-Jews (Christians and Muslims) of their chosenness. How did they do it? “Almost by accident,” wrote Jewish author Marcus Eli Ravage in his must-read 1928 article “A real case against the Jews.” I think the accidental factor was rather minor.

The Christians’ theory that, after choosing the Jews, God cursed them for their rejection of Christ doesn’t contradict, but rather validates the Jews’ claim that they are the only ethnic group that God chose, loved exclusively and guided personally through his prophets for thousands of years. I have argued in “The Holy Hook” that this has given the Jews an ambivalent but decisive spiritual authority over Gentiles. In fact, even the Jews’ “cursedness” that goes with their chosenness in the Christian view has been beneficial to them, because Jewishness cannot survive without hostility to and from the Gentile world; that’s part of its biblical DNA. Jesus saved the Jews in the sense that their hatred of Christianity preserved their identity, which might otherwise have perished without the Temple. According to Jacob Neusner “Judaism as we know it was born in the encounter with triumphant Christianity.”[2] Christian Judeophobia had an advantage over Pagan Judeophobia: with Christianity, the Jews were not just hated as atavistically antisocial (i.e., Tacitus’ Histories v, 3-5), but as God’s once chosen people, and their Torah became the world bestseller. Chosenness is an unbeatable trump card in the game of nations. If you doubt its power, just ask yourself: would the Jews have gotten Palestine in 1948 without that card? The Holocaust joker alone would not have done it!"

and:
". . . Why did Christ ultimately supplant Osiris, even absorbing the cult of Isis? How is it that the glorious and self-confident Roman Empire converted to the cult of a Jewish healer tortured and executed by Roman authorities for sedition? This is the Jewish question that few people want to ask. Assuming that Christianity is a human creation—and that’s my premise—, it is obviously a Jewish creation to a large extent. How did Jews manage to create a religion for Gentiles that would ultimately eradicate all other religions in the Empire—beginning with the imperial cult? 
A full understanding of this question will probably never be reached, but with what we have learned about Jewish ways in the last hundred years, we can try to formulate some reasonable scenario, one that doesn’t involve God talking to emperors, but another talking device—money—as well as political leverage by a Jewish transgenerational network determined to seize control of the religious policy of the Empire. We, today, know that such Jewish transgenerational networks, capable of driving their host Empires or nations to their ruin, do exist. We also know that they are good at fabricating and promoting their Judeocentric macabre religion for the Goyim."
and (the first shekeling of a politician, a scheme that has led to such degradation, war and suffering):
"Barbiero makes the plausible assumption that Josephus had contributed his share of the Temple treasure to Vespasian. Since Josephus plays a big role in Barbiero’s theory, let us first outline what we know about him. Born Yosef ben Matityahu, he was from the first of the twenty-four priestly classes by his father, according to his autobiography. He also tells us that, in his mid twenties, he had spent more than two years in Rome to negotiate with Emperor Nero for the release of some Jewish priests who were prosecuted, probably for tax evasion (Vita 16). In 67, aged thirty, he served as a commander in the Jewish army, then defected to the Roman side the same year. He then served as a translator for Titus and Vespasian, and was able to save the lives of two hundred and fifty members of his priestly circle. When Vespasian became emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor’s family name. Back in Rome, Vespasian lodged him in his own villa (having built for himself a luxurious palace), and granted him a salary for life from the state treasury, as well as a huge estate in Judea. Josephus devoted the rest of his life to writing books celebrating Jewish history, his last book, Against Apion, being a defense of Judaism. Until his death at the turn of the century, he was a prominent member of the Jewish community in Rome, which comprised many other priests.

In Book iv of the Jewish War, Josephus recounts how, after his capture in Galilee, he was brought to Vespasian, and convinced the general to hear him in private. Vespasian consented and asked every one to withdraw, save Titus and two of their friends. Then Josephus delivered to Vespasian a “prophecy” from God, that Nero would soon die and Vespasian rise to imperial power. Vespasian kept Josephus with him and rewarded him for his prophecy when it came true. That particular story lacks the credibility that generally characterizes Josephus’ book. Flavio Barbiero therefore assumes that it should be understood as an embarrassed euphemism: in reality, Josephus provided Vespasian not with a prediction of his becoming emperor, but with the means for becoming emperor. That means was the Temple treasure.
Josephus Flavius was the first of the Jewish priests to fall into the hands of the Romans, and he was the one who obtained the greatest favors. Seeing that he not only belonged to the first of the priestly families, but also occupied a very high position of responsibility in Israel, as governor of Galilee, and that he had a profound knowledge of the desert of Judah, where he had spent three years of his youth, it is legitimate to believe that he knew about the operations to hide the treasure and was perfectly capable of finding the hiding places. During his private audience with Vespasian immediately after his capture, Josephus must have negotiated his own safety and future prosperity in exchange for the Temple treasure. The proposal would have been irresistible for the penniless Roman general, who thus saw the possibility of securing the necessary means for his ascent to imperial power. On that occasion, the two of them probably made a pact, which was to change the destinies of the world.[19]
This, rather than some “prophecy”, can explain the extraordinary favor that Josephus received from Vespasian, which, Josephus admits, stirred much jealousy among the Roman aristocracy."

Disgust and shock

Who better than an actual genocide practitioner to provide some verisimilitude to the weaponized Khazar genocide story, you know the one that lets them get away with things that nobody else could possibly get away with?:  "Former General Who Called for the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians Picked to Head Israel’s Holocaust Museum" (Cook).

Tweet (Yasha Levine):

"the squad —> the imperial firing squad"

"When a US politician calls for a new consulate to be established anywhere, remember "US consulate" basically means "CIA outpost.""
"Democracies Don’t Start Wars. But Democrats Do" (Giraldi).

Tweet (Dan Cohen):
"Tibet didn’t make the International Rescue Committee’s list of world’s most dire humanitarian crises because China’s “atrocities” are completely fictional. 
US genocidal wars in Yemen, Afghanistan and Syria, however, topped the list, because they’re real. https://google.com/amp/s/www.axios.com/world-worst-humanitarian-crisis-yemen-burkina-faso-266fe28d-ce25-4a8e-a22e-e2af97f22a2b.html"
You can see why China might be considered to be a terrible threat to the Assholian 'way of life':  "China Looks at Cutting Inequality in Order to Boost the Economy" (Hancock).  What happens to 'trickle down' if they try something 'demand side' like this and it works?

In contrast: tweet (Yasha Levine):
"translation: peasants are born to die and they should die quietly without making too big a fuss."
Note how the sexist STEM story was used by Harvard to cover up for the classic Khazar nepotism story:  "Larry Summers’ Opposition to $2000 Covid Payments Confirms Our Classic: “Why Larry Summers Should Not Be Permitted to Run Anything More Important than a Dog Pound”" (Smith).

Anti-terror

 Lest we forget:  tweet (David Gura):

"From a 2004 Department of Justice news release, RE: Charles Kushner:"

Obviously the most moral Khazar man who has ever existed and kudos to Trump for ending this Holocaust.

It may be some kind of Christmas miracle, but it seems to be the extra pork for the Khazars that created the outrage around the paltry $600, leaving political space for an increase in the amount (which will still be wildly insufficient, as the amount decided on should be a monthly payment, not a one-off).

"US Jews need to stop Biden from reentering Iran deal — Israeli tells Israel lobby group" (Weiss).  
But we all only want peace, goyim!

"Lawyer for Israeli “anti-terror” group was convicted terrorist" (Winstanley).  I guess it takes one to know one (of course, the people called 'terrorists' by the Khazars are all people resisting Khazar terrorism. with, as we all know, modern terrorism being entirely a Khazar invention).  Not ironic when you consider that 'terror' can only be applied to human beings, and Khazars are the only human beings.  Never, ever, forget, goyim.

Tweet (Michael Tracey):
"One of Tulsi's final bills would prohibit taxpayer funds or government resources from being used to enact sanctions that inflict suffering on civilian populations anywhere in the world https://congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-resolution/1270/text?r=2&s=2"
"Pakistan court orders release of accused in Daniel Pearl killing".  Still awaiting final determination.  Pakistan is angry about all the pressure being put on it to 'normalize' relations with Khazaria, i.e., fuck over the Palestinians.

"China to strengthen military coordination with Russia" (Bhadrakumar) (good approach to any Assholian 'divide and conquer' strategy):
"The US-Russia-China triangle is sure to transform under the Biden presidency if Washington sets sights on Moscow as the biggest threat to the US national security.

The craziest

"Turkey gets an ally in Ukraine" (Bhdrakumar).  Using Turkish techniques used in Karabakh to capture eastern Ukraine.

"Don’t Blame the Soviets for the War in Nagorno-Karabakh" (Parry).  There is a discussion of the photo in the comments.

"Propaganda Pandemic: The Craziest COVID Claims Of The Year" (Cohen).  China's success is a PR problem for the Empire.

"Washington vetoes aid to Sri Lanka and paves the way for Chinese expansion" (Leiroz).  Backfiring 'humanitarian' bullying.

"US sanctions London-based family of Assad's wife under Caesar Act".

Cole, shamefully reprinting Khazar WWIII propaganda from HRW:  "Why is the Russian Public Paying for Bombing Schools in Syria?" (Wille).

"Dream of Greater Europe dies: German efforts to create a Europe without Russia forged a Europe against Russia" (Diesen).  "Does Russia Actually Have an Advantage in the Battle for Multipolarity?" (Kirby).

"Israel’s Genocide in Gaza Goes Uninterrupted, But Is Europe Finally Taking Notice?" (Peled):

"In fact, according to the Israeli press, Germany just announced that in order to provide Israel with a European made vaccine for Covid-19, “Germany used its influence in the EU to bend the rule that a European-produced vaccination would be given to European countries first. Germany justified the decision in part through its “historical commitment to supporting Israel.” Knowing full well that millions of Palestinians are denied health care and that the spread of Covid-19 among Palestinians is alarming, no such commitment was made to assist the Palestinians in their fight against the deadly disease.."

"Joint Statement: 10 Israeli, Palestinian and international health and human rights organizations: Israel must provide necessary vaccines to Palestinian health care systems" (reliefweb).  Striking in that Israel is vaccinating the squatters while ignoring the actual owners of the land.

"Israel illegally recruits Canadian citizens to its army" (Barrows-Friedman).  Laws obviously don't apply to Khazars, there are too many examples to count.  'Honoring' these monsters, while mopping up the blood pouring off their fangs.

"Imperial Intent: Destroying India’s Farm Sector" (Todhunter).  The usual.

Charismatic buccaneer

"White Helmets founder James le Mesurier’s widow pins his death on a colleague in latest bid for posthumous PR" (Klarenberg).  One of the many reasons why this cowboy shit is so popular is that the sheer amount of money required to move whole proxy armies around allows for quite a bit to 'slip between the cracks' into somebody's pocket.  Nobody seems to get too mad about this until the operation takes a back seat to personal financial grifting.  It is curious to watch the 'journalists' fall into line on the cover-up, even as the grifter in question is no longer with us.

"Covid-19 catch-22: Regime-change policies come packed with US pandemic relief" (Rubinstein/Sprague).  Looks like we should be watching out for regime change in Belarus.

"Deficit Hawk Joe Biden Sabotaged Pandemic Relief Efforts" (Moon).  The Grand Bargain to gut any remaining assistance for the poors is also in the works, and the Biden-McConnell handshake sealing the deal will by lauded by 'journalists' as one of the greatest moments in Assholian history.  Not being able to fuck over the poors is regarded by Barry as the single greatest disappointment of his Presidency.

Two mysteries on the verge of being solved:

  1. Mostly Harmless; and
  2. the Sumter County Does (one of my favorites, as there is evidence they may be Canadian).

The cost of a good pardon these days

"Will Trump Pardon Himself? Why the Hell Not?" (Scofield):
"To set a benchmark for the worst Trump could come up with as he issues the standard raft of end-of-Presidency pardons on his way to his last journey on Marine One, allow me a brief walk down memory lane to remind readers of one Bill Clinton’s highlights in sleaze: the Marc Rich pardon. It would be hard to top the standard set by the Clintons there.

Ex-wife, New York socialite and campaign fundraiser Denise Rich managed to secure a pardon for the fugitive financier from Clinton.

She denied that any money changed hands.

Sure. I believe her totally. Why should I not?

What I remember at the time was the strong, persistent rumors from well-connected contacts that more than money changed hands.

Leave it to Bill that money wasn’t quite sleazy enough – but that there also had to be a bedroom angle.

Rich also denied she had an affair with Bill in this Irish Times account, Denise Rich denies Clinton’s pardon bought:

Wealthy Democratic Party donor Denise Rich, in her first interviews since former President Bill Clinton’s pardon of her ex-husband, Marc Rich, insisted the pardon was not bought and said she supported it under pressure from their daughters.

“That’s not at all what it was about,” Ms Rich said in the 20/20 interview to be broadcast today.”I wanted to support the president, and I wanted to support my country.” Ms Rich also denied tabloid reports suggesting that she and Mr Clinton had an affair.

“I never had a sexual relationship or anything else that’s improper,” she said. “Any kind of relationship that would be improper with President Clinton.” In both interviews, Ms. Rich, 57, admitted that her contributions to the Democratic Party, including former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign for a US Senate seat from New York, had bought her access to the White House.

The office of the US Attorney for Manhattan, Mary Jo White, is examining whether Marc Rich, 66, bought his pardon with political donations and gifts that Denise Rich gave Mr Clinton, the Democratic Party and Senator Hillary Clinton.

Vanity Fair traces Rich’s dealings in North Korea, Russia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Jamaica, Venezuela and South Africa, when anti-apartheid sanctions were in force.

“The smoking gun is greed,” Ken Hill, the US Marshall who hunted Mr Rich around the world for 14 years, told Vanity Fair. This is what Marc thrived on – the greed of those who had commodities and were in positions of influence and power."

Juju

"The Dangerous Alliance of Rothschild and the Vatican of Francis" (Engdahl).  'The Guardians'.  Reality sounding like the most insane conspiracy theory.

"IMF Proposes Punishing Dissidents by Lowering Their Credit Score if They Go to Bad Websites" (Trejo).  The elites, having just got away with mass murder and mass vote fraud in Assholia, all with no repercussions, are loony with power.

"Biden Quietly Adds Goldman Sachs, Big Tech Officials to Transition" (Johnson).  "Big Tech's stealth push to influence the Biden administration" (Bose).  Not reassuring if you think breaking the tech monopolies is an important issue.

"Va. Judge Rules Black Defendant Can’t Get a Fair Trial in Courtroom Largely Featuring Portraits of White Judges" (Sailer).  Note the remedy is to remove the portraits which are creating the evil juju.

"The Case for Secession" (Dalton).  Secession is exactly what the most hard-core of the white nationalists have always called for, essentially physically separating themselves from other races.

"In last push before Trump exits, GOP tries to erase Palestinian refugees" (Reubner).  I long for separation from the Khazars.  Apparently, it is very easy, just pass legislation making ritual torture of animals illegal:  "Memo to Belgium: A country that wants Jews doesn’t ban kosher meat" (Brand).

"Alyssa Milano Posts Tweet About Israel Aid, Deletes After Being Goy-Shamed" (Anglin).

"Controversial ‘Spy Tech’ Firm Palantir Lands £23m NHS Data Deal" (Fitzgerald).  Another use of the excuse of the virus to do what they have wanted to do, but didn't dare.

"The Left’s Culture War Rebranding" (Mesrobian).  Identity politics sucks all the life out of class politics, and we are seeing it demonstrated now (AOC, morphing into Pelosi right before our eyes, runs the 'impossibility' of reform up the flagpole once again).

Pepe is losing his mind:  "Behold the dawning of the Age of Aquarius" and "Kim No-VAX Does DARPA".

Underpants gnomes

"US Cyber Spy Scandal: Pompeo Blames Russia, Trump Blames China. Why?" (Korybko).  The Zionists will take any war, but a War For The Jews against Russia more directly fixes their problem of Russia's position in the Middle East, which is gumming up the all important land thievery of the Khleptomaniacs.  Is the Fat Fuck delusional enough to think of himself as a serious Presidential candidate?  He certainly won't want for shekels.

The ol' novichok in the underpants trick:  Maté is skeptical but open to the possibility; Ames et al find it a hilarious prank, with underpants as the tip-off.

Priorities

Tweet (Jordan):

"priorities" 

I think they have now established that there is nothing, no matter how preposterously unfair, that the Assholian elites can't get away with.  There will be no serious push-back (and the weak response to the serial bumbling of the incompetent politicians and bureaucrats concerning Covid proved that the people are spineless).  The historic fear of the elites of revolution, which put a slight damper on the grasping, and in fact allowed for the social development that is now being entirely rolled back, is no longer an issue.  They can't even be bothered to hide their disdain.  Let the pillaging begin!

"$500m to Israel in midst of Covid relief bill sparks ire" (North/Weiss).

"And, on pages 2630-2633, Congress decides to regulate the selection of the next Dalai Lama."

"Pork City: Here Are The Most Ridiculous Pet Projects In $900 Billion Stimulus Package" (Durden):

"Top Russian Scientist Alexander ‘Sasha’ Kagansky Working On COVID-19 Vaccine Assassinated In St Petersberg",

"Purdue Pharma Owners Were Wary Of Lawsuits Before Moving $10 Billion From Company" (Durden).

"Europe’s Machiavellian Moment" (Crooke).  The Europeanization of Assholia, accomplished almost without a hitch
"Well, thanks to the ‘Great Disrupter’ (Trump), as David Stockman is wont to call him, many Americans have come to the settled view that their votes matter naught in eyes of those navigating ‘the centralisation project’. That there is scant accountability to it, and that all benefits accrue to the oligarchy. They feel disenfranchised – and are angry.

What they are traumatically experiencing, though, is the planned transition from ‘the politics of rules’ to the era of coerced consensus – as Middelaar so proudly outlined it.

The ‘Project’s modus operandi of a seemingly ‘depoliticised’ progress towards centralization, however, has crashed into the ever-unpredictable ‘rock’ of Trump. He intends to drive straight through – and past – the election ‘fraud’.

Even if it takes longer than 6 January (or the Inauguration of Biden), it seems plain that Trump is determined for the election entrails – with all the fingerprints – to be pulled out, and laid bare. This eventuality was not fully in the blueprint: Trump was supposed, under pressure, ultimately to concede. It is thus far from over. The election and Biden personally are de-legitimised for half America: Will the MSM ‘dam’ succeed to hold back the waters at this level?

Usually, such ‘coups’ are supposed to proceed quietly – with decisions presented as ‘depoliticised’ necessities, imposed by a series of emergencies (Covid being the most obvious example) – thus casting all opposition as ‘extremist’, or even as a ‘security risk’ (as in the case of anti-vaxxers). 
However, risks are attached to the ‘coercive consensus’ stratagem of the U.S. Tech platforms, and of Merkel’s similar tactic of declaring measures ‘alternativlos’ (translation: alternative-less, or TINA) – a favourite formula of Merkel’s. This strategy of endlessly repeated fait-accomplis feeds public scepticism: The public hears this as ‘like it or lump it’, and becomes more angry."
The virus facilitated the massive vote fraud, and it also facilitates the repression, which mostly takes the form of middle-aged white men angrily refusing to wear a mask, easily picked off one by one by the authorities on public safety grounds.
