Don't do that

"Escobar: Russia "Would Really Not Want" Cold War 2.0".  Lavrov is the Russian big brain we usually hear from, but Russia is well equipped with wisdom.  Sadly, wisdom isn't much use if the Assholian neocons again manage to set up a war tripwire, as they now have in Ukraine.

"Greenwald: Due Process, Adult Sexual Morality And The Case Of Rep. Matt Gaetz".  What we're seeing is one of those rare situations where the blackmail victim calls the bluff of the blackmailer.  Usually that is done by acknowledging the truth of the alleged impropriety - remember when David Letterman was blackmailed and had to admit to an affair? - but Gaetz and his handlers seem to have constructed an even more elaborate story, which so far does not include the admission of guilt.  Basically, Gaetz is trying to force the government to back down for 'national security' reasons, which means revealing the existence of systematic Israeli blackmail of Assholian politicians.  It is fun that the 'national security' issue isn't the blackmail, but the threat of revealing the extent of the blackmail.  This is a dangerous game of chicken, and Gaetz is more likely to end up dead than arrested.

"'Is Biden Really In Charge?' Asks A Skeptical Sen. Cornyn" (Durden).  It is really quite something, right out in the open.  Like woke capitalism, it is something that is happening which is unimaginable, yet here we are.

Doubling down on strange corporate behavior:  "Woke Capital Unites Hundreds of CEOs, Corporations, Oligarchs, Wall Street Law Firms and Hollywood Celebrities Behind Assault On Democracy" ('Hunter Wallace').

"Biden’s Claim To Be Ending America’s Longest War Misleading" (Kuzmarov):

"The meaninglessness of President Biden’s announcement becomes apparent when we consider that the Pentagon employs more than seven contractors for every serviceman or woman in Afghanistan; an increase of one contractor for every serviceman or woman a decade ago.

As of January, more than 18,000 contractors remained in Afghanistan, according to a Defense Department report, when official troop totals had been reduced to 2,500."

Tweets by Richard Hanania on the extremely negative reaction, even to a phony withdrawal.  I'd also be expecting some terrible false-flag attack in the next few months, making any kind of withdrawal 'premature'.

"Top 7 Most Ridiculous Hate Crime Hoaxes" (revolver).  No longer just rabbis!

"“Don’t Do That”: Reporters Tell Police Chief Not To Use The Term “Riot”" (Turley).  'Don't do that', i.e., don't tell the truth about what is happening and what you saw with your own lying eyes.  He should have listened, as telling the truth cost him his job.

"US Claims Preventing Fuel Ships From Docking in Yemen Is ‘Not a Blockade’" (DeCamp).  A series of extremely convoluted rationalizations.

"How Bellingcat Launders National Security State Talking Points into the Press" (MacLeod).  Knowing how people naturally feel about 'journalists', intelligence agencies find it increasingly difficult to get the PR lies out.  Everybody now assumes all words in the (((media))) are outright lies.  Bellingcat was an attempt to get around this with the addition of faux authenticity, supposedly deriving from the fact he was billed as a 'citizen journalist', and not just a 'journalist'.  We saw the PR transition in the incident documented by Maté where an already prepared piece of PR was to be published by the Huffington Post, but was pulled and directed through Bellingcat.

Completely unpredictable events

"Corporations of the World, Unite!" (Edsall) (title is now changed to an inferior one).

"Big Corporations Now Deploying Woke Ideology The Way Intelligence Agencies Do: As A Disguise" (Greenwald).  The virtue-signaling, gaywashing kinds of activities Greenwald discusses are cheap or free, are arguably an attempt to increase market share amongst certain groups while losing few normies, and can be distinguished from boycotting a whole state over its voting laws - though MLB isn't really subject to the same rules as long as the owners are on board - or insulting its main customers in advertising, for example.

It appears likely that wokenness is cutting into profits, at least in some cases.  Recent corporate actions seem to defy the first law of modern corporate governance, that directors and officers have one sole duty, which is to maximize corporate profits.  Breaching that duty is actionable, and the shareholders can sue to get back their 'stolen' profits.  So none of this makes any sense.

There's a whole new category of completely unpredictable events.

The game goes on

"The Magic of Israel" (Giraldi):

". . . a group called “UK Lawyers for Israel” acting on behalf of the Israeli government has been altering the material included in secondary school text books. Per a statement issued by Pearson, the largest publisher of school books in the UK, the company has suspended publication of two textbooks responding to “an eight-page report, by Middle East specialists Professors John Chalcraft and James Dickins, which found hundreds of changes to the textbooks overwhelmingly favoring an Israeli narrative and removing or replacing passages that support Palestinian narratives.”

Censorship of course materials as well as textbooks by Jewish groups to depict Israel in a certain way has certainly been going on in the United States for many years. And the corruption of our institutions to favor Israel and protect it from criticism is incessant. It will be interesting to see if the Gaetz story in all its aspects will ever be allowed to surface or whether the congressman will be offered some inducement to allow him to quietly resign. Somehow, it reminds one of the still unresolved Jeffrey Epstein case in which Epstein and his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell obtained blackmail material relating to world leaders and celebrities having sex with young girls, somewhat similar to the claims regarding Gaetz.

Many including myself believe that Epstein was part of an Israeli intelligence operation, similar in scale to what was being run on 9/11, which sought to “influence” key figures on issues regarded as important by the Jewish state. Clearly, the game goes on with no one in Washington caring much about the damage being done. Do corrupted and intimidated Congressmen over their morning coffee ponder whether certain activities are “Good for Israel” and therefore not subject to further scrutiny? Judging from Epstein and Gaetz, one would have to believe that to be the case."
"The ‘NY Times’ is whitewashing Israel’s efforts to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal" (North).

You have to love that (((they))) set out what all your opinions are going to be in the ad!

"Is It Time to Cancel FDR?" (Lind). 
"For its part, the Democratic Party has been transforming itself into the older Republican Party under a new, ostensibly progressive label. In 2020, while losing some Black and Latino voters to Trump, the Democrats gained notably among only one major demographic—the affluent, highly-educated white men whose forebears were “country club Republicans.” It is no surprise that the geographic heartlands of today’s Democratic Party are those of the old Federalist-Whig-Republican coalition—New England and the regions of the Midwest and the West Coast that New Englanders settled in the 19th century. In addition to being in large part the children and grandchildren of yesteryear’s upscale Republican voters, today’s white Democrats have also inherited the causes of the liberal, old-money Republican establishment of Nelson Rockefeller and John Lindsay: conservationism (now “environmentalism”), family planning (now abortion rights and gender fluidity), and support for civil rights for racial minorities (now racial quotas in firms, government offices, university curricula, and literary and artistic canons). 
But weren’t the New Deal and the Great Society America’s versions of European social democracy? Isn’t “democratic socialism” more or less the same as New Deal policy? That’s what democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders has suggested. But Norman Thomas disagreed. The leader of the Socialist Party in the United States during Roosevelt’s four terms, Thomas published an essay asking, “Is the New Deal Socialism?” Not at all, he answered: “Emphatically, Mr. Roosevelt did not carry out the Socialist platform, unless he carried it out on a stretcher.” 
In fact, Thomas had no trouble identifying Roosevelt as a Jacksonian populist: “His slogan was not the Socialist cry: ‘Workers of the world, workers with hand and brain, in town and country, unite!’ His cry was: ‘Workers and small stockholders unite, clean up Wall Street.’ That cry is at least as old as Andrew Jackson.” 
Indeed, the New Deal can be seen as a Jacksonian counterrevolution among farmers, small-town provincial business elites in the hinterland, and white working-class urbanites, pitting themselves against the alliance of Northern industrial capitalists and moralistic Greater New England Yankee Puritans who dominated the federal government between Abraham Lincoln and Herbert Hoover. The New Deal was a religious rebellion as much as it was an economic struggle. Support for the New Deal Democrats was strongest among groups of white outsiders that were long despised by the mainline Protestant elites of Greater New England: white Northern Catholics, Jews, and white Southern evangelical Protestants."
and:
"Today’s left-wing academic historians often complain that the beneficiaries of New Deal peripheral modernization were chiefly landowners and Southern and Western businesses. It’s true! Thank you, Professor Obvious. The goal of the New Deal was not to foment a biracial communist revolution in the countryside against the kulaks, but to help the Jacksonian business elites of the South and West to catch up with their Northern rivals. Even so, in the long run poor white and Black Southerners alike benefited from industrialization and urbanization, which in turn helped make the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s possible."
and:
"The verdict seems clear. In the 21st century, there can be no room in the Democratic pantheon for a rich, white, male, heterosexual politician known for his extramarital affairs and who sought to identify himself in the public mind with Andrew Jackson, who disliked dense cities and wanted to promote suburban and exurban sprawl, who rejected single payer health care, who cultivated oil and gas tycoons, who condemned universal cash subsidies to all Americans as demoralizing and creating dependency, and whose typical supporters were the sort of non-college-educated, working-class voters who were drawn to Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020. 
Face it, Democrats. Dumping Jefferson and Jackson was only the beginning. It’s time to cancel FDR."
'Hunter Wallace' has been all over these shifts in the two parties for weeks now.

"Israel’s judicial system is the most rotten part of the Jewish state. They have sanctioned the use of torture, ethnic cleansing, confiscation of Palestinian lands and homes, the expulsion of Palestinians, and have approved the bombing of Gaza and Lebanon. There was no war crime or crime against humanity committed in Israel that did not receive the approval and blessing of the judiciary. Even for straightforward mass murder, the Israeli court had sentenced the murderer to a fine of ten cents! The courts have declared all the state lands of Palestine to be the property of the Jewish people. They have also allowed the construction of Jewish settlements on Palestinian lands, and the indefinite imprisonment for Palestinian parliamentarians. The judges are as unfair and dishonest as in the US."

Gays versus diddlers

I was wondering why Greenwald was so sensible on the tranny stuff (to the extent they call him a terf, the finest honor that one can receive in 'the current year'), as you might have thought he would be a dumpster fire.  Then I read this remarkable thread from September by Malcolm Clark and all became clear.  There is a war to the death going on behind the scenes between the trannies and the gays, all arising out of the self-sabotage by the gays, tricked by the trannies, in the 90s (over the issue of 'self-identifying').  

It is curious that the gays are fighting for their rights, but self-styled reps for women, the 'feminists', have collapsed like a cheap suitcase facing the ultimate patriarchy of trannyism.  Also, as Anglin so astutely pointed out, enforced trannyism is the opening for the concept that children can make complicated legal and medical decisions, and give legally-binding consent thereto, a view which is unambiguously intended to legalize pedophilia.  Women having abandoned themselves and children, and men hiding in terror of being seen as having any opinion, it may be the gays who are left to save the kids from the pedos. This would be good for the gays, who could always use a bit of an airgap from the pedos.

I can't help but notice that the technique, getting ahead of the agenda by drafting it, is pure Zionist technique, as is another common trick, tying your interests to a bigger, more popular issue, as the Khazars have bizarrely been allowed to use Holocaust talk and 'human rights' to promote their genocide and mass human rights abuses.  There is also the issue of keeping your worst excesses out of the (((media))), easy if you own it.  Finally, the ultimate trick is to insert into the debate seemingly innocuous wording that can then be used for lawfare purposes (see the 'self identifying' wording, and the enforced definitions of 'anti-Semitism', which suddenly become weaponized once accepted by the unwitting).

Last tweet in the thread:

"How could an idea so fundamentally irrational and with such dodgy roots in notions inimical to kids have wriggled its way into the minds of so many legislators? Perhaps if we can learn from this farce we can defend ourselves from the next incursion of the delusional."

Systematic collapse

Tweets by Elijah J. Magnier:

"#Lebanon

I can't share with u the (Valid/tangible) reasons but in 1 year (more or less), the financial situation in Lebanon will drastically improve. Prices of Goods, medicine, oil (et al) will be much cheaper and the Americans and their Gulf allies will wake up & lift sanctions

The #US and Gulf won't do it out of support and humanitarian approach but out of necessity. 
I won't give any further explanations but mark my words.

If I explain why this will happen and what are the elements that will change the financial situation in #Lebanon, the Americans will wake up earlier but won't be able to change the course of events in the direction I foresee. Therefore, no details and no articles about it now."
Von der Leyen loses a spirited game of musical chairs:  "Turkey blames EU in 'sofagate' diplomatic spat".  It is clear from the picture she was just as close to the chair as Erdoğan, so it is her own damn fault for failing to pay attention to the tune.  Being good at musical chairs is against Euro-trash 'norms'.

Thread by Human Rights Watch Watcher on AOC's thugs.  The soul of AOC was up for grabs, but after she got The Visit and with it her first bag it has been all morally down hill for her, and recent statements demonstrate that she is the reincarnation of Nancy Pelosi.

"WEF Warns Of Cyber Attack Leading To Systemic Collapse Of The Global Financial System" (Webb):
"Given that experts have been warning since the last global financial crisis that the collapse of the entire system was inevitable due to central bank mismanagement and rampant Wall Street corruption, a cyber attack would also provide the perfect scenario for dismantling the current, failing system as it would absolve central banks and corrupt financial institutions of any responsibility. It would also provide a justification for incredibly troubling policies promoted by the WEF-Carnegie report, such as a greater fusion of intelligence agencies and banks in order to better “protect” critical financial infrastructure."
and:
". . . Bank of America, the second largest bank in the US and part of the WEF-Carnegie Initiative and FS-ISAC, was reported to have “actively but secretly engaged” with US law enforcement agencies in the hunt for “political extremists” following the January 6th events at Capitol Hill. In doing so, Bank of America shared private information with the federal government without the knowledge or consent of its customers, leading critics to accuse the bank of “effectively acting as an intelligence agency.”

Yet, arguably the most troubling part of the report is its call to unite the national security apparatus and the finance industry first, and then use that as a model to do the same with other sectors of the economy. It states that “protecting the international financial system can be a model for other sectors,” adding that “focusing on the financial sector provides a starting point and could pave the way to better protect other sectors in the future.”

Were all the sectors of the economy to also fuse with the national security state, it would inevitably create a reality where there is no part of daily human life that is not ultimately controlled by these two already very powerful entities. This is a clear recipe for techno-fascism on a global scale. As this WEF-Carnegie report makes clear, the roadmap regarding how to cook up such a nightmare has already been charted out in coordination with the very institutions, banks and governments that currently control the global financial system.

Not only that, but – as pointed out in Unlimited Hangout‘s article on Cyber Polygon – the World Economic Forum and many of its partners have a vested interest in the systemic collapse of the current financial system. In addition, many central banks have recently backed new digital currency systems that can only achieve rapid, mass adoption if the existing system collapses.

Given that these systems are set to be integrated with biometric IDs and so-called “vaccine passports” through the WEF and Big Tech-backed Vaccine Credential initiative, it is worth considering the timing of the expected launch of such systems in determining when this predicted and allegedly inevitable event is likely to occur.
With this new financial system so deeply inter-connected to these “credential” efforts, this cyber attack on the financial sector would likely take place at a time when it would best facilitate the adoption of the new economic system and its integration into credential systems currently being promoted as a “way out” of COVID-19-related restrictions."
(((Biden's teleprompter))) is doing exactly what it wants to do:  "Biden’s Presidency Will Be Destroyed By His Foreign Policy" (Johnson).  "Ukraine’s NATO fantasy is a suicide pill in disguise; military action by the alliance against pro-Russian forces would be crushed" (Ritter).  Of course, the lack of success of the Ukrainians is the desired outcome of the (((warmongers))), who hate both Russia and Ukraine, and want to use this conflict as the stepping stone to WWIII (hint: (((they))) also hate Europe).  Putin will sweep in and take over eastern Ukraine in hours, just as China will retake Taiwan before anything can be done about it (though there will probably be decades of insurgency after the initial take-over), leading to the obvious conclusion that these western 'protectorates' are more accurately described as 'bait'.

This posting about Chechnya might be topical (Russians are not passive victims):  "27 February 1993 Outisiev Brothers Murdered Day After WTC Is Bombed" (Holloway).  "The US war on Europe: a continental 911?

The wife of infamous Thiel-philosopher Curtis Yarvin has died, so he wrote a pretty good poem.  'Tubes'.  The past isn’t past—it isn’t even deleted.

Assortative mating at Ivies

Some tweets out of a thread by a "Jew adjacent apologist for white genocide", who writes for Tablet:

"People who understand the social construction of race  are engineering a new elite ethnogenesis: assortative mating at Ivies will create racially mixed elite overclass as remaining legacy and athlete whites mate with "POC" majority

This is "dismantling whiteness" in practice. Soon, K-12 schools will teach majority POC classes that the new locus of American national unity is the POC nation overcoming the remaining influence of Trumpian whiteness

The rapidity with which Princeton successfully engineered its POC majority points to how this can be done nationally -- you make whiteness a toxic identification that limits opportunity but then let whites flow easily through self-identification out of whiteness

It's the obverse of the process that "whiteness studies" scholars claim manufactured whiteness out of distinct European ethnicities in the first place (it amounted to a single generation of intermarriage in mid-century) and at least in the domain they control, it's working

This of course leaves the rump of Trumpian whites who lack the emotional and rhetorical lability to play the new game of race and gender fluidity in an increasingly isolated situation; as they lash out in rage, they will further delegitimize themselves

And create pretexts for the continuation of the agonistic process through which the new American nation emerges in opposition to the legacy one -- it may well involve a domestic war on terror as the rump turns violent"

I always recommend putting down the opium pipe before tweeting, but this works too.

Jordan

"Jordan: Why King Abdullah's troubles are not over" (Hearst): 

"When Abdullah’s son, Crown Prince Hussein, was supposed to visit and pray at Al Aqsa Mosque, over which Jordan has custodianship, a row broke out between the Jordanian mukhabarat and Shin Bet about how many of his bodyguards could carry arms. 

Humiliated, the crown prince cancelled the visit. In retaliation, the helicopter which was supposed to carry Netanyahu to Amman, where he would pick up a private jet sent by Mohammed bin Zayed for a photo-op in Abu Dhabi, was denied permission to cross Jordanian airspace.

In truth, the whole spat was a charade, as Netanyahu may have been under orders to stay at home. His wife Sara was undergoing surgery. After Netanyahu had an extramarital affair, Israel has been flooded with rumours that the prime minister signed a contract with his wife which stipulates that she accompanies him on overnight visits."
and (pointing to the Saudis):
"While no evidence links Prince Hamzah to the alleged coup attempt, it is also significant that Jordan security sources picked out to the foreign media, the role of two of the 20 or so who have been arrested.  
They did so because of their links with Saudi Arabia. They were directing the finger of blame to the Gulf when most of the action is taking place inside the kingdom. The two men are Hassan bin Zayed, a member of the royal family, and Bassem Awadallah. 
Awadallah’s role was terminated in 2018, when the king was persuaded that his envoy was closer to Riyadh than he was to Jordan. Awadallah holds both Saudi and Jordan citizenship. Awadallah was once very close to King Abdullah. Awadallah served as economic secretary to the Jordanian premier from 1992 to 1996. He was appointed head of Jordan's royal court in 2007, before being sacked from the position less than a year later. When he left Jordan, Awadallah moved to Dubai, setting up a company called Tomouh. Awadallah shuttled between the Emirates and Saudi, where he still acted as Jordan’s special envoy. 
Awadallah had meanwhile set up a network of prominent businessmen and was working as a consultant for the Saudi crown prince. He became Mohammed bin Salman's economic adviser and is helping the planning of his futuristic city Neom. He also forged strong ties with bin Zayed and was appointed to the board of directors of the University of Dubai. According to sources inside the Emirati court, Awadallah is more important to MbZ than the exiled Palestinian security chief Mohammed Dahlan.  
Some news media outlets called Awadallah one of the masterminds of the privatisation of Aramco. Mastermind is a curious epithet as this has largely failed. But Awadallah appeared alongside his new master bin Salman at the annual Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, the so-called Davos in the Desert, in January. 
Arresting Awadallah is the biggest one finger sign Abdullah could have made to both bin Salman and bin Zayed. 
But Jordan cannot confront Saudi Arabia openly. If they did, and accused Saudi of sending messages to Hamzah through Awadallah to mount a coup d'etat, it would mean the expulsion of Jordanian workers and businessmen from Saudi which would spell economic ruin for the kingdom. 
Within hours of the news of Awadallah’s arrest, a Saudi delegation headed by the foreign minister requested permission to visit Amman. According to an intelligence source of an unnamed Middle Eastern country monitoring these events, which was quoted by the Washington Post, the Saudis requested the release of Awadallah. "The Saudis were saying that they won’t leave the country without him," the official said. "It would appear that they are worried about what he would say," the Post reported
Nor can Jordan confront Israel directly. It was the Israeli media that delved into the past of Roy Shaposhnik, the Israeli living in Europe who offered a private jet to Hamzah, so that his wife and children could leave the country. 
Shaposhnik denied he was a member of Mossad, but he worked for Erik Prince, established his own company RS Logistical Solutions which provided services to Prince’s company for training Iraqi soldiers in Jordan. He met Hamzah through mutual contacts and their families became close friends."

Miserable necessity

"Who was Behind the Attempted Coup D’etat in Jordan?" (Danilov):

". . .  the events of April 3 can hardly be called a clear attempt at a coup d’etat in Jordan, which is denied to this day by both the official authorities and the media of the kingdom. Most likely, this was another (as in 2017) signal to King Abdullah II from Washington and Riyadh to “tame him,” to make him obedient to the selfish goals of Washington and Saudi Arabia."

Maybe, but I think Israel and MbZ had bigger plans, and the Saudis may not have been involved at all.

"Ukraine's Zelensky: "NATO Membership Is The Only Way To End War In Donbass"" (Durden).  The frightening part is that neither 1) the Assholes (or their Khazar bosses), 2) the government of Ukraine, or 3) the oligarchs who actually run Ukraine, gives a shit about the people of Ukraine, so the immediate massive humanitarian issues raised by NATO gamesmanship is not a factor in decision making.

"Claims of Uyghur genocide in China are ‘lies,’ adviser to B.C. premier says" (Nuttall/Chiu).  All hell is now going to pour down on this poor guy for bravely stating an obvious truth.  Related, is Trudeau a retard?  Serious question, as this is Peak Retard:  "Canadian warship transits South China Sea as diplomatic tensions remain high".  China still holds the 'two Michaels', who Trudeau pretends to care about, but obviously doesn't considering this unnecessary lackey foolishness.

Name game

"Syria war: Who are the real anti-imperialists?" (Massad).  More on the imperialist trick of personalizing future or present targets of the Empire.  'Assad', that monster!, is the problem, and not the actual target, the people of Syria.  There is no reason we should continue to fall for this trick.

"Saudi aid worker sentenced to 20 years in prison".

"Are Vaccines the Real Driving Force Behind the Latest Donbass Destabilization?" (Korybko).  WWIII would certainly re-distance Europe and Russia if the pandemic happened to bring them too close together.

"Wikipedia’s Deep Ties to Big Tech" (Olenick).  Note the section labeled "Conflicts of Interest: Wikimedia".

No recollection

"Hunter Biden has ‘no recollection’ of meeting stripper with whom he had a child" (Moore).  Does he think that makes it sound better?

"Starmer isn’t “too cautious”: he is ruthlessly tearing Labour apart" (Cook).  What happens when you foolishly elect a 'leader' who is actually only interested in ensuring the party fails?  The Canadian NDP might ask themselves the same question.  The commonality is that both 'leaders' are working on pure shekel programs, i.e., doing nothing that does not increase their own personal stashes of shekels.  Btw, if we don't name this, and make it commonly understood, it will just continue.

The undeniable advantages of being conspiracy woke:  "Dealing With Demons" (Romanoff):

"One reason the Chinese were able to deal with the epidemic while the UK and USA stumbled in the dark is that the Chinese think, with considerable justification, that they have been under biological attack, on and off since c.1950, and were therefore prepared with well-laid plans and competent organisers to respond to such an event. As soon as the central government learned the specific nature of the outbreak, it responded massively and to a very large extent the population understood the necessity of what was asked of them and cooperated."

"Bombshell book in Germany revives 9/11 as a business model" (Escobar).  There was undeniable insider trading going on involving foreknowledge of the attacks, yet Assholian authorities have never looked into it except to dismiss it.  Schall interviews Chesney (it is worth watching the video).  Buying unhedged options on airline stocks was a sure fire way to make a lot of money, but required foreknowledge.  As with the JFK assassination, a full analysis, with names, would have solved the case.

"Would Israel Blackmail a US Congressman?" (Giraldi).  Ha ha!  Tip of the iceberg.  A comment or two wonders about Scott Adams.

"Prosecutors Ask Jurors To Dismiss George Floyd Autopsy Findings" (Turley).

Tweet (Joe Catron):
"Critical support for Comrade Thomas."

The real art of the deal

"China and Russia Launch a ‘Global Resistance Economy’"  (Crooke):

"The ‘resistance’ lies precisely with the way they’re trying to help each other. It is a mode of economic development. It represents the notion that any rent-yielding resource – banking, land, natural resources and natural infrastructure monopolies – should be in the public domain to provide basic needs to everybody – freely."

and (whoa!):
"There is in Washington (and to an extent in Europe too), a faction entertaining a pathological emotional desire for war with Russia, largely stemming from a conviction that the Tzars (and later Stalin), were anti-Semitic. Their emotion is one of hatred and anger, yet it is they who largely are responsible for bringing Russia and China together. This, and America’s proclivity to sanction the world, has given China and Russia their opportunity."
"How Eurasia Will be Interconnected" (Escobar).

"The Iran-China pact is a huge blow for Western imperialists who want war in Asia (2/2)" (Mazaheri).

"Russia, China Uphold Rules-Based Order – In Spite of Western Roguery".

"Nasrallah: US’ top priority is preventing a China-Russia-Iran alliance".

"How China is Going to Reshape Asia" (Sheikh).

"China Isn’t the Problem, Neoliberalism Is" (Urie).

It is still fun to watch the Assholes, with their shekeled and Maxwell-blackmailed politicians, and, of course, Biden's Khabinet, spend all their time setting up future Wars For The Jews, while the rest of the world, except Europe and other lackeys, just gets on with business.

The gang's all here

"Jordan claims businessman who offered to help arrested prince is former Mossad agent" (Ravid) (my emphasis in red):

"Between the lines: Shaposhnik, 41, was a political operative in the centrist Kadima party in Israel 15 years ago. He served as an adviser to then Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

  • Later he went to the private sector and worked for U.S. businessman Erik Prince's security company. After several years he established his own company, RS Logistical Solutions, which provided services to the U.S. State Department and other governments around the world.
  • Shaposhnik’s company also provided logistical services to Prince’s company as it was training Iraqi soldiers in Jordan. This is when he met Prince Hamzah through a mutual friend. The pair and their families became close friends."
Israel, Prince, U.S. State Department. That sounds about right.

Sincere conviction

"Cuba is a vaccine powerhouse" (Doctorow).

Tweet (Ali Abunimah):

"Just listened to @theJagmeetSingh on @CBCTheHouse. He was asked a question about Palestinian rights. His answer: I’m against anti-Semitism. He would not mention even the word Palestinians. He’s the Canadian @Keir_Starmer. Absolutely pathetic."

Tweet (BenAris):
"Why would Atlantic council want to think Putin would want a war in Ukraine

1. To continue to hype russian fear to keep money coming in

2. ensure Washington keeps listening 2 AC

3. keep seen leading ukr advocate in US so those indie director post on ukr SOE  boards"
"Crucial interview of Foreign Minister Lavrov (MUST READ!)":
"Dimitri Simes: Richard Nixon once told Nikita Khrushchev that there would be no true harmony or true partnership between the Soviet Union and America unless the Soviet Union stops spreading its ideology. And that was a big problem in the Brezhnev era, I must say, because they discussed a détente while at the same time supporting a continued international class struggle. As I see it, Leonid Brezhnev was doing it without much conviction. But now, things have turned the other way around. Now the collective West is eager to proliferate its ideology and values. And they seem to be doing so with far greater conviction and perseverance than the Soviet Union under Leonid Brezhnev ever tried. Does this pose a risk of collision? 

Sergey Lavrov: Under Leonid Brezhnev, the Soviet Union saw no threat to its existence. One can argue whether that stance was far-sighted enough, but that is how it was. Today’s West senses a threat to its dominance. It is a fact. So all those wiggling moves, including the invention of some ‘rules’ – as in the rules-based international order, something the West has come up with to replace the UN Charter – they reflect precisely this tendency.

I agree that we have swapped positions, or rather the Soviet Union and the modern West have. I don’t think this will offend anyone since this is not a big secret. I spoke with Rex Tillerson when he was US Secretary of State. He is a thoughtful and experienced politician and diplomat. It was good to work with him. We disagreed on most things, but we always wanted to continue the dialogue to bring our positions just a little bit closer at least. When he first told me they were concerned about Russia’s interference in some elections, I said they had not proved anything to us yet, and all we heard was accusations. When they began to accuse us of interfering in their elections, we repeatedly proposed using the special channel we had for exchanging information about threats to information networks and organisations. They refused. We had repeatedly offered dialogue even before that, when Barack Obama was president, from October 2016 until Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. They always refused.

I pointed out to Tillerson that they had in fact directly stipulated in legislation that the US State Department should spend $20 million a year to support Russian civil society and promote democracy. That was not even a suspicion on our part as they did it openly (for example, the Ukraine Support Act). There was nothing to prove – they just announced that they would interfere. He told me that was totally different. I asked him why, and he said because we promoted authoritarianism, and they spread democracy. That was it.

Dimitri Simes: And he said it with sincere conviction, didn’t he?

Sergey Lavrov: Yes."
Tweet (Bryan MacDonald):
"This thread is being widely started by the so-called 'expert community' on Russia/FSU, so I asked a source who has been involved in setting Kremlin policy on Ukraine what they thought.
 
They replied: "Западноцентричная фигня."

A coup attempt in Jordan

Jordan has been completely cucking to Israel for decades, but recently caused some flying problems for Bibi in objecting to the 'Abraham Accords' (and there might be a pipeline issue), so this happens:  "Nearly 20 Arrested In Coup Attempt Against Jordan's King Abdullah" (Durden).

The Israeli prince

"New Evidence Shows Israeli Consulate Is Behind Matt Gaetz Extortion Scandal" (Striker). Scott Adams, of all people, adds details connecting the Levinson plot to the Israeli embassy.  This is obviously supposed to look like a scam to get money out of Don Gaetz, dad of Matt, and a lot of it sounds like something you would hear from a Nigerian prince (with a soupçon of Iran-Contra).  It doesn't look very good for Matt, as the crux of the pressure on Don is an offer to pull strings to get Matt out of legal trouble, which adds credibility to the idea he had real legal trouble.  The Gaetz family plan - I guess with the help of the Israeli embassy, scrambling to keep everything under wraps - seems to be to turn the usual Israeli Epstein-style blackmail into 'extortion', leaving the idea that Matt is a victim here (and forget about the underlying legal issues).  Something went seriously sideways, in that the underlying blackmail material is never supposed to see the light of day, and certainly is never supposed to be the subject of criminal investigations/proceedings.  Maybe Matt should hire Dersh as his lawyer!

Dog and pony shows

Tweet (Tim Xeriland):

"Pete Buttigieg's dog and pony show.

Use an armored Suburban to bring a bike within a short distance of the destination. Unload it and ride in with a security detail in tow, pretending to save energy" 

"The Suez Grounding Was an Accident. The Next Blocked Chokepoint Might Not Be." (Savitz).

"“Wipe out China!” US-funded Uyghur activists train as gun-toting foot soldiers for empire" (Singh).  They have really assimilated to Assholian life!

"The Endless War: Afghanistan Goes On and On" (Giraldi).  The war's purpose is to continue to pressure Pakistan - a Sunni majority state with nukes that makes Israel nervous - and to use heroin profits to fund various CIA projects.

Tweet (Dean O'Brien - BA (Hons)) (also missing that it is stated official Ukrainian government policy to invade Crimea):
"The main news in The Times today is that "Russia is stationing 4,000 troops on the border with Ukraine."  The author does not write about the fact that the Ukrainian Armed Forces has been transferring tanks to the Donbass for a week & shelling its own civilians for 8 years."
"British lawyer Geoffrey Robertson and his fake Magnitsky story" (Komisar).  Definitive history of all things Magnitsky.  It is worrisome that Assange's counsel seem to think airing various lies about Magnitsky is a good idea, though it is not known if Fitzgerald knew anything about this.

"Again, Washington jumps to conclusions over Ukraine-Russia skirmish" (Lieven):
"How often in the past has the United States been seduced into disastrous international actions by local actors who knew the right American buttons to push and the right misinformation to feed to Washington? Iranian monarchists, British intelligence, the United Fruit Company, Vietnamese politicians; Cuban, Iraqi and Libyan exiles, Arab princelings, Afghan warlords, an almost endless succession of Latin American generals and oligarchs — I could go on. "
Yes, yes you could go on.  (((Something))) seems to be missing.  I wish we could be sure of this:
"To repeat the vital point that I made in an article for Responsible Statecraft last month, if Ukraine goes to war with Russia, Ukraine will lose, and the United States and NATO will not fight to save her. The consequences for Washington will be deep humiliation, and Russia will be driven into the arms of China. So the duty of the Biden administration, the CIA, the State Department and the media is clear: find out what is really happening in the Donbas and then use that knowledge to help craft a strategy for preventing a new conflict, not inflaming one."
Tweet (Glenn Greenwald):
"Remember: when reporting on this story was suppressed by Facebook before the election, it was a life-long Democratic operative, @AndymStone, who announced FB's decision. Even more disturbing: FB's head of content election-moderation, Anna Makanju, was a long-time Biden advisor."
"Demented Thinking About Joe Biden" (Rall).  Brendan Fraser is a much greater actor than Streep because he is, in fact, a great actor, and she isn't.  She won all those awards because of Weinstein.  His career was derailed by the usual (((Hollywood))) metoo crowd.  Watch him in 'Trust'.

Bracing for WWIII

"As Russian Tanks Move Toward Ukraine, The Globe Braces For World War 3" (Snyder).  Of course, the (((media))) reports on the movements of Russia troops, with no mention of why.  Classic warmongering.  When something bad happens, it will all be Putin's fault, requiring regime chance to right the world.  The fact that this may lead to easier Yinon in Syria is just a happy accident.

The post-Epstein/Maxwell blues

Just because Epstein is 'dead' and Maxwell  is 'in jail' doesn't mean that the difficult and important work of herding the farm animals through blackmail can stop.

"Joel Greenberg, Matt Gaetz visited closed Seminole tax office together on weekend, source says" (Comas/Garcia/Weiner).

"Who Is Joel Greenberg? Meet the Jewish Florida Politician at the Center of the Matt Gaetz Scandal".

"The guy who tarred Matt Gaetz: Joel Greenberg, accused of child sex trafficking" (Kampeas):

"Greenberg is the son of Andrew Greenberg, who in the 1980s founded an empire, Greenberg Dental, which now has over 90 practices across Florida. Joel Greenberg is a millionaire, mostly because of his stake in the dental practice.

Defending himself in 2018 against the Islamophobia charge, Greenberg said that one of his brothers is Black.

“One of my best friends is Muslim, and I have a Black brother,” Greenberg told the Orlando Weekly. “I’m Jewish, which is probably one of the most hated groups. I don’t go out there to be a demagogue against anyone else. I think it’s fun to have a discussion.”

His Facebook page features an undated photo of himself at the Western Wall."

This looks to be a huge clusterfuck, as the blackmail operations are sacrosanct, obviously, and the mess was uncovered by accident as part of an investigation of Greenberg's many, many other shady activities.  The feds investigating Greenberg, "Central Florida’s worst politician", must have had heart attacks when Gaetz' name popped up.  This isn't how blackmail is supposed to work - you lose hold once the bad deeds of the blackmailee hit the news.  We should develop a new appreciation for the professionalism of Epstein/Maxwell, who managed to stay in their lane for decades.

Of course, Gaetz has been a rabid supporter of the temporary Zionist entity.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!:  "Gaetz crony Joel Greenberg is only Jewish ‘as a prop’ say his critics" (Pinsky).

Of course, the hillbillies of the Florida Panhandle are just relieved Gaetz isn't gay.

"Propaganda By Omission: Libya, Syria, Venezuela And The UK" (Media Lens).  "CNN Publishes Real News Story For April Fools' Day" (The Babylon Bee).  

Magic spray stream theory

 "Democrats' "Terrorist Insurrection" Narrative Collapses As Most Capitol Rioters Likely Won't Face Jail Time" (Durden).  Waived through an open door by the security officials in charge, to a public building - no charges should have been laid unless somebody committed vandalism or took something.

"Twitter and YouTube Manipulation in Trial of Derek Chauvin for the Death of George Floyd?" (Smith).  Very odd.  (((Social media))) generally can be counted on to damage society as much as possible, which would include stirring up riots.  You have to wonder if a decision has been made, in concert with the government, to attempt to limit the damage after the inevitable acquittal.  I don't think he should be acquitted, but it appears he was following his Israeli training.  Following workplace protocols is reasonable doubt.

Magic spray stream theory:  "So-Called “Assault Video” Creates Big Problems for Prosecutors in Sicknick Capitol Riot Death Case" (revolver).

"Bolsonaro sacks military command in bid to consolidate authoritarian rule in Brazil" (Castanheira).  This is the kind of thing you do the day before the successful coup against you.  

"Biden, the Blob & the Banderites" (Robeson).  The neo-Nazis plan WWIII with their Asshole friends, including "Rep. Andy Levin.  "Levin, the deputy whip of the Congressional Progressive Caucus . . . "  As we all should know by now, there is nothing more progressive than WWIII.

"The shame of our Syria policy – TTG".  Unshakeable Yinon.

"Gaetz ‘Extortion’ Figure's Levinson Obsession" (Stein).  Gaetz's counter-theory is so bizarre it might be true.  Levinson is almost certainly dead, so raising money for a rescue mission looks like a scam.  Of course, Gaetz, who seems to be some kind of weirdo, and wants to be President (but I repeat myself), may have committed the underlying crime that became the subject of the alleged extortion attempt.

"Glenn Greenwald Is Making a $Million/Year Off Substack Newsletter" (Sailer).

"'CNN News' Writer Claims "Not Possible" To Assign Gender At Birth" (Desanctis).  Tweet (Michael Tracey):

"I'm sorry but this thread is fucking insane, and it's doubly fucking insane that so many journalists and other blue-checks are lavishing praise upon it"

Preparing for war

"Understanding Anti-Putin PSYOPs: Preparing for War" (The Saker).  The anti-Putin propaganda is directed towards the Assholes themselves, part of the usual process of personalizing the targets of future Wars For The Jews.  We've seen this over and over with Saddam, Assad, the leaders of Iran (the 'Mullahs'), Maduro, Gaddafi, etc.  It is what Khazars think motivates Assholes to war. In fact, we're seeing the entire Khazar warmongering playbook, which we have seen over and over and over, rolled out by the (((media))) on multiple fronts (Ukraine, Iran, China, Venezuela), with Russia the only real target.  Since nobody can remember history, even extremely recent history, we're doomed to repeat it.

"No More Obstacles for War in Ukraine. Russia Deploys Troops in Crimea" (South Front).  Note that alongside the show of strength, Putin is going to try to talk some sense into Merkel and Macron.  Such 'Trash are usually worse than useless, but the prospect of leaving Europe as a smoldering radioactive uninhabitable wasteland might just be enough to lead to common sense.  Oh, who am I kidding, Europe is fucked.  Years ago, Europeans should have locked all their political 'leaders' and high bureaucrats in large buildings, and burned down the buildings, and then changed their voting systems to obtain responsible government.  Having failed to do that, there is nothing more to do than kiss your ass goodbye.

"Washington's Hegemonic Ambitions Defy Multipolar Reality, Risking Catastrophic Conflict" (Cunningham interview of Diesen):

"Glenn Diesen: How can relations be repaired? The source of all problems with Russia was the failure to reach a mutually acceptable post-Cold War settlement. Efforts to create a Europe-without-Russia inevitably became a Europe-against-Russia. Initially, Russian apprehensions could be ignored as Russia was weak and did not have anywhere else to go. This is no longer the case. The EU can either treat the underlying problem of excluding the largest state in Europe from Europe, or it can aim to treat the symptoms that include Russia’s pivot to the east – primarily China. 

Both France and Germany have become more vocal about the folly of continuing to push Russia towards China. France has been more ambitious in terms of rethinking relations with Russia to resolve the underlying problems, while Germany has been more focused on treating the symptoms by maintaining economic connectivity with Russia. 

What can the EU do? Suspending NATO expansion towards Russian borders or ending anti-Russian sanctions would undermine both EU and NATO solidarity as it is opposed by the U.S. and certain Central and Eastern European countries. The EU and the West were not designed for a multipolar world and so risk its internal cohesion no matter what is done. 

The EU is not demonstrating any intentions of altering its subject-object relationship with Russia, and seeking solutions through mutual compromise. When the EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell went to Moscow last month, the effort to improve relations with Russia was therefore limited to lecturing Russia about its domestic affairs and transgressions in international affairs, which, it was inferred, Russia should correct in order to earn the EU’s forgiveness and improve relations."

Imperial temptations

"They’re Not Even Trying to Make Sense Now" (Armstrong).   "Master List Of Official Russia Claims That Proved To Be Bogus" (Taibbi).

"The Iran-China Axis Is A Fast Growing Force In Oil Markets" (Messler).

"U.S. tries to break Iran nuclear deadlock with new proposal for Tehran" (Toosi).  Every word in the headline is a lie.

"More at Stake for Iran and China than just a Trade Deal" (O'Neill).  Heroin and the CIA.

"Requiem for the ‘American Century’" (Bacevich):

"The longest war in U.S. history should by now have led Americans to reflect on the consequences that stem from succumbing to imperial temptations in a world where empire has long since become obsolete. Some might insist that present-day Americans have imbibed that lesson. In Washington, hawks appear chastened, with few calling for Biden to dispatch U.S. troops to Yemen or Myanmar or even Venezuela, our oil-rich “neighbor,” to put things right. For now, the nation’s appetite for military intervention abroad appears to be sated.

But mark me down as skeptical. Only when Americans openly acknowledge their imperial transgressions will genuine repentance become possible. And only with repentance will avoiding further occasions to sin become a habit. In other words, only when Americans call imperialism by its name will vows of “never again” deserve to be taken seriously."

"Biden's Ukrainian "Putin Push" May Lead To World War III" (Wilds).  You can see why Ukraine has a Khazar leader, as Khazars are notorious for not caring about anybody other than other Khazars, so the inevitable deaths of very many Ukrainians won't bother him in the least.  One of the dynamic parts of planning for WWIII - for this is what we're seeing - is the economic hit to Ukraine once Nord Stream 2 is completed.

"“Poor Rich Haiti”: How Imperialists and Local Oligarchy Have Sought to Destroy Haitian Agriculture" (Rivara).

"The British ambassador who supported a coup" (Curtis/Kennard).

"U.S. Government Turns Somalia Into Failed State to Steal Its Oil for Shell and Exxon-Mobil" (Alexandrov).

"Antisemitism definition to take center stage at NDP convention" (Engler).  These 'socialists' take the shekels.  Every.  Single.  Time.  There is literally no chance they will do the right thing.  They are simply disgusting.

"Who are the Israel lobbyists that want David Miller fired?" (Winstanley).  One of the most striking things about Khazar Zionists is how hate-filled and unlikeable they are, right on the surface.  It is the main reason why they will eventually lose, shekels notwithstanding.  Any normal, decent person is immediately disgusted by any of these thugs.  The weirdest thing is that they have no clue about how they are perceived, and think of themselves as completely loveable.
