The stinktank trick

This is classic - the Americans yell and scream and sanction and threaten war, and the Russians and Chinese step in to make money and friends:  "Venezuela wins Russia and China backing as it says it is honoring debt".  "Venezuela will finish paying its debt to Russia within 10 years after restructure".  "Venezuela Signs $3.2 Billion Debt Restructuring Deal With Russia" (Durden).

Interview regarding the 87% (!) increase in opium production in Afghanistan over the last year with a UN official, who sounds drunk or perhaps on an opium high:  "Who Promotes Afghan Farmers' Opium Cultivation and Production?":
"Q: Do you think that the powerful countries (without names) in Afghanistan, under security and military pretexts, are behind the increase of the cultivation, production and distribution of opium?

Answer: No, I don’t think so, no state in power is involved.

Q: What is your comment on the saying that the US military is behind the increase of production of opium?

Answer: I do not think so, we have no information directed against the US military in Afghanistan.

So where does the opium of Afghanistan go if America is not the beneficiary and who is responsible for producing opium?

Answer: Farmers are responsible, and a lot of opium production goes to Canada."
Meanwhile, the Canadian smuggling problem continues: "Colby Cosh: The egglegging party's over: Kinder Eggs are coming to America. Sort of".

"Different Hoax for Different Folks" (Sailer) (on the hoaxing outbreak due to the money and fame to be made from hoaxes, with no consequences if caught):
". . . higher-ups almost never suffer consequences for encouraging hate hoaxes by taking them seriously. Both Silveria of the Air Force Academy and Greenblatt of the ADL have fallen for hate hoaxes this year in what should have been a humiliating fashion. But instead, the two chumps/exploiters were honoring each other this week.

Last week, comedy legend Larry David shocked much of the country by devoting one joke in his Saturday Night Live monologue to noticing that his fellow Jews were overrepresented in the ongoing Harvey Weinstein-inspired sexual-harassment scandals.

Similarly, Jews tend to disproportionately figure in validating and promoting hate hoaxes. But few know this because David-style criticism of any Jewish tendencies toward self-indulgent behavior is punished in modern America.

Indeed, the ADL says it exists to “to put an end forever to…ridicule of any sect or body of citizens.” In essence, Jews are off-limits to satire. Yet being vulnerable to criticism encourages us to behave better, which is why people like Weinstein and Greenblatt are able to run amok for so long."

"John Kerry and Prince Charles kill the Israeli project" (Alexis).  "Foreign, European Jews".  Chuck nails it - the problem isn't Jews, it is Khazars.  If you say that, you are labeled an anti-Semite, when the Khazars aren't even Semites (if you can get your head around that!).  In fact, the real Semites are mostly what we now call Palestinians, the descendants of the Jews to whom the mythological promise of land was given by the mythological deity to the mythological Abraham, the promise that is the stated basis today for the Khazar theft of Israel!  The truth is mind-blowing!  We've been manipulated so much we don't even have the vocabulary to discuss it.

They are usually at least a little more subtle than this!:  ""I've Been Banned From Facebook For Sharing An Article About False Flags"" (Johnstone).

Nice to see another (Khazar) warmonger called out for it:  "Monbiot, Syria and Universalism" (a very woke Roddis).  Note the Chomskyesque technique - you develop a 'progressive' reputation in one area, and then use that to further your real appalling goals.  It is especially ironic in this case as the main cause of world environmental degradation is the universal wars that these people keep whining for.

This is quite something in terms of the communal organization and presentation of information, in this case about the largely hidden Awan scandal:  "Hillary's Hamlet".

Spectacular Sailer (Hall of Fame example!):  "Peter Beinart Exposes Marty Peretz's Bias at TNR for Grooming His Fellow Straight White Men".  If you multiply this kind of thing by a trillion you get the current state of the deception, but Beinart is a particularly striking - not to mention silly in the extent of his assumptions of the stupidity of his audience - example.  Note the Trump awareness at the end.  Generally, the decoder ring is 'straight' = 'gay' and, particularly, 'white' = 'Khazar'.

"In early September, before the existence of the warrant for McGowan was public, Weinstein held a meeting with his private investigators that was focussed on the efforts to arrest McGowan, according to a source who was at the Weinstein Company at the time. Weinstein suggested leaking the information to the New York Post. A reporter from the Post, who declined to comment and asked not to be named in this story, followed up with McGowan shortly thereafter to inquire about the warrant. Fearing that the Post reporter would publish a story, McGowan tweeted that she was facing charges in Virginia. “I beat him to it,” she said."

Both the CIA and the FBI were well aware of this during the immediate aftermath of the assassination.

So ask yourself this question: Why would someone who wasn’t Oswald pretend to be Oswald and run around visiting Soviet and Cuban embassies? Could it be that someone was trying to set up Oswald to make it look like he was working with the “commies” to kill Kennedy? If anyone wanted an excuse to start a war with Cuba and the Soviets, this was an opportunity served on a silver platter.Clearly something very strange was going on in Mexico City in the months leading up to JFK’s assassination.

Interesting development

"I can confirm to you that Saad Hariri is indeed held against his will: although Western governments are covering it up" (Angry Arab).  What's important is that the Saudi kidnappers haven't fooled one person in Lebanon.  Also:  "The shoddy journalism of the Economist magazine: how I miss the old Economist and former correspondents".

"UK prosecutors admit destroying key emails in Julian Assange case" (I can't think of a non-criminal reason for them ever destroying any electronic material):
"Adding to the intrigue, it emerged the [Crown Prosecution Service] lawyer involved had, unaccountably, advised the Swedes in 2010 or 2011 not to visit London to interview Assange. An interview at that time could have prevented the long-running embassy standoff."

 "According to the [Campaign Against Anti-Semitism], X is not guilty of committing Y as long as X is stereotypically associated with committing Y. If X is guilty, for instance,  of shoving a banana into someone’s eye (Y), the  defence would be that shoving bananas into other people’s eyes (Y) is one of the stereotypes about X.

Similarly, the CAA claims it is anti-Semitic to refer to the Jewish Lobby as the strongest lobby in Westminster because the accusation is consistent with the Jewish stereotype of Jewish lobbies being influential. Likewise we should vindicate Harvey Weinstein of any wrong doing because Larry David admitted on Saturday Night Live that predatory behaviour has become a Jewish stereotype. I expect Bernie Madoff to capitalise on this line of defence and appeal for his immediate release. Alan Dershowitz can also come clean about his bad habits by blaming them on Jewish stereotypes.   

The paradox here is obvious, The CAA’s circular argument has nothing to do with any consideration of ethics, truthfulness or correspondence with reality. The ‘stereotype’ redeems the sin. By this logic the CAA itself is innocent of any wrong thinking because such a Jerusalemite anti-ethical intellectual pattern is also a Jerusalemite stereotype. "

Surely some US president / at a woman

"Why Saudi Purge Signals War Footing" (Cunningham):
"Potentially most sinister is that on the day of the mass arrests, a contender for inheriting the Saudi throne was killed in a helicopter crash. Prince Mansour bin Muqrin (42) was among eight officials who died when their chopper went down in southern Asir Province near the border with Yemen. Saudi media have not given any details about the cause of the crash. One might have expected the Saudis to lay the blame on Houthi rebels and, by extension, Iran. But no. The House of Saud and its media outlets have said little about the death of this senior royal. Significantly, too, the Houthi rebels and their media have said little about the incident. If there was a chance of the rebels being involved, one might expect them to prompt a propaganda coup claiming a spectacular blow against the Saudis whom they have been fighting a war against since March 2015.

The chopper victim Prince Mansour was the son of 72-year-old Prince Muqrin, who is one of the last surviving sons of the Saudi kingdom’s founder Ibn Saud. (He is a half-brother to the sitting King Salman.)

Prince Muqrin was also former head of Saudi state intelligence (2005-2012) before he was made Crown Prince in January 2015 upon the death of his brother, the late King Abdullah. In the arcane world of Saudi power inheritance, the throne has always passed between Ibn Saud’s sons, or from brother to brother. When Abdullah died in January 2015, the next in line was their brother Salman (the present king). After Salman, according to traditional succession rules, the next heir to the throne should have been Muqrin, who indeed was made Crown Prince in January 2015. However, three months later, King Salman demoted Muqrin as heir apparent. He was sidelined to make way for the emergence of Mohammed bin Salman, the son of the king, as Crown Prince. That marked an unprecedented rupture in Saudi royal tradition, and no doubt has left a seething resentment among the clans comprising the House of Saud.

Prince Muqrin and his lineage of six sons therefore can be seen as a dangerous rival to the ambitions of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. As his own father King Salman’s health declines, the next-in-line appears to be clearing the royal court of potential competition for the throne.

It is not yet known what actually happened to the helicopter ferrying Prince Mansour last weekend. But it seems more than a coincidence that the crash occurred on the same day as the arrest and round-up of several other senior royals. Two of those arrested were Prince Mataib bin Abdullah and Prince Turki bin Abdullah. They are the sons of the late King Abdullah, and like Prince Mansour, they are cousins of Crown Prince MbS, and therefore could potentially mount a challenge to his succession to the throne."
It appears that wars and the Iran obsession are going to be used to distract from Prince Salman's succession problem.  WWIII so one guy can jump the queue doesn't usually work out well.

Never let it be said that Saudis lack a sense of humor:  "Saudi Arabia alleges citizen kidnapped in Lebanon". They have also accomplished the impossible in making Saad Hariri a popular politician in Lebanon.  And congratulations to the entire population of Lebanon for being so extremely woke!

Saudi hands

"Harvey Weinstein’s Israeli spy was music video vixen and Israeli air force officer, with Holocaust backstory" (Deger).  McGowan was very brave when she stuck her neck out, but she really had no idea of what she was dealing with.

The AIPAC of the 820s (Agobard was as shocked as Rose McGowan):  "Agobard of Lyon and The Origins of the Hostile Elite" (Joyce; footnotes removed):
"To date, our best understanding of modern Jewish political strategies in the context of the “taboo” can be found in Chapter 6 of Kevin MacDonald’s Separation and Its Discontent: Toward an Evolutionary Theory of Anti-Semitism, titled “Jewish Strategies for Combatting Anti-Semitism.” One section deals with “Political Strategies for Minimizing Anti-Semitism.” MacDonald notes that Jews have been flexible strategizers in the political arena, buttressed by an IQ substantially above the Caucasian mean, and argues that the foundations for Jewish influence are wealth, education, and social status. Today, Jews apply this influence in order to stifle negative discussion of their group, and at times to stifle any discussion of Jews at all. MacDonald points out that this is normally done via extensive communal support for “self-defense committees,” which are a feature of every Diaspora population. These committees invariably lobby governments, utilize and influence legal systems, produce pro-Jewish and pro-multicultural propaganda, and fund pro-Jewish candidates or initiatives. Another of their vital functions has been to monitor and expose “anti-Semites,” and to use legal systems in order to exact individual punishments, thereby making an example of individuals and thereby imposing a deterrent atmosphere on the rest of the population.

It almost goes without saying that in the modern era Jews have been very successful in making anti-Semitism a disreputable and unsavory enterprise. Perhaps more than any other shaming device, accusations of anti-Semitism can be socially and professionally devastating. Academic studies which argue that anti-Semitism has a rational and understandable basis, such as MacDonald’s work, are monitored and excluded from scholarly discourse in an unceasing effort to maintain Jewish control over narratives concerning their group and deflecting antagonism to it. A foundational idea underpinning the creation of this most modern taboo is that anti-Semitism is a personal flaw indicative of psychiatric disorder and a social aberration, epitomized by the writing of the Frankfurt School of Social Research. Despite achieving an almost monolithic position in the public mind of most European populations, it is particularly noteworthy that such conceptualizations of anti-Semitism as an irrational and inexplicable form of psychosocial illness are extremely recent, having been developed only in the last sixty years by a cast of Jewish intellectuals—particularly those at the nexus of psychoanalysis and the Frankfurt School.

This reframing of European understandings of anti-Semitism has been due not only to Jewish influence in academia, the media, and the development of social policy, but also to a general ignorance among Europeans of the historical experiences of their ancestors. Europeans cannot come to terms with the issue of Jewish influence purely by confronting its contemporary manifestations – they must engage with the experiences of their forebears, and understand how and why they viewed Jews as a hostile elite.

All of these considerations led me to one question: when and how did this “hostile elite” begin? Although Jewish influence was noted during the life of the Roman Empire, I excluded this period from my deliberations for a number of reasons. The first was that I wanted a close contextual proximity to present conditions; in other words, as a bare minimum I felt it necessary that I should find an early example of Jewish influence that still mirrored enough features of the modern experience to be broadly valid in comparison. Despite a proliferation of expatriate communities, during the Roman Empire, or at least until the sack of Jerusalem by Titus in AD 70, Jews could be considered as predominantly a national people rather than a Diaspora. It could thus be argued that relations between the Roman Empire and Jewish populations could on some level be understood within the framework of traditional diplomacy and power relations.

It was only after Rome’s demolition of the Second Jewish Commonwealth in the first century that the Exilic period ushered in significantly novel forms of Jewish political activity. These political activities also became uniform, with Amichai Cohen and Stuart Cohen noting of the new Diaspora: “Notwithstanding variations dictated by vast differences of location and situation, all Jewish communities developed and refined a remarkably similar set of broad [political] strategies.” The second reason is related to the first in the sense that this set of Jewish political strategies had to be present in a broad geographical area of Europe. This breadth of geographical dispersion, and the subsequent extension of Jewish interactions with European populations, only occurred after the fall of the Roman Empire. A third and final reason for omitting the period of the Roman Empire was that my precondition of close contextual proximity required that the nation states of today, at least in their prototypical form, should be broadly recognizable. Finally, the Jews of Visigothic Spain, although wealthy, powerful, and incredibly hostile, have been discounted due to their failure to establish a relationship with Visigothic elites. This failure most notably resulted in the Jews providing assistance to a replacement elite — Muslim invaders.

The set of “broad political strategies” referred to above requires further elaboration. Lacking a state, and insistent on remaining apart from their host nations, Diaspora Jewish populations developed an indirect and at times highly abstract style of politics in order to advance their interests. In Jewish sources it became known as shtadtlanut (“intercession” or “petitioning”), and represented a personal and highly involved form of diplomacy or statecraft that, in the words of the Cohens, “prioritized persuasion.” In the modern era we are familiar with such shtadlans as the Anti-Defamation League, and AIPAC. These bodies claim to represent all Jews, and the interests of all Jews, and do so when interacting with, interceding with, or “persuading” host nation governments or other arms of the White elite. However, the shtadlan as a large formal body or committee is a relatively modern development, and was a necessary response to the end of absolute monarchy at the beginning of the nineteenth century (and the corresponding rise of parliamentary democracy and the modern state). Prior to c.1815, Jews often pursued their interests via a small number of very wealthy and “persuasive” individual shtadlans who would form personal relationships with a king, prince, or other powerful members of the European elite. This was most pronounced during the Early Modern period when Hofjuden, or Court Jews, negotiated privileges and protections for Jews with European monarchs. An excellent example is that of Daniel Itzig (1723–1799), the Court Jew of Kings Frederick II the Great and Frederick William II of Prussia, who used his wealth and influence to persuade these monarchs to abolish many restrictions on Prussian Jews and grant them a succession of privileges. Put simply, the concentration of power in individuals meant that Jewish interests could also be negotiated by individuals.

However, although we may still see echoes of the old shtadlans in individuals like George Soros or Sheldon Adelson, the dispersal of political power following the collapse of the absolute monarchies required a greater number of Jewish “persuaders,” thus necessitating the development of the modern Jewish “diplomatic” organization. Of course, the majority of these modern bodies vigorously deny their “diplomatic” or political function, preferring to style themselves as “self-defense” bodies or similar abstractions. Writing on the subject of shtadtlanut Samuel Freedman has argued that Jews have “become wedded to a “crisis model” in community-building, in which either Holocaust commemoration or opposition to anti-Semitism are the raison d’etre for the largest communal organizations, from the Simon Wiesenthal Center to the American Jewish Committee.” This masking of deeper political interests should be seen as combining deception (of Europeans) and self-deception (among some Jews) in the broader Jewish strategy, or at least as a device designed to boost the recruitment of “persuaders.” Jews (at least those not consciously engaged in deception) and Europeans are thus led to believe that such bodies are necessary to defend and protect a vulnerable community in crisis, when in fact their primary function is to advance the interests of an extremely wealthy, culturally invulnerable, and politically powerful community — a hostile elite."

Fingernails

Comment at Naked Capitalism by southern appalachian:
"I keep thinking Brexit will have a much larger impact on the US and our foreign policy than I ever hear discussed. Maybe it won’t. But with the UK out, I don’t know that it will be as easy to build a coalition of support for the war against Iran. I assume in fact it will be something that more or less happens one day, that the natural appeal to the majority of the EU of working with China and Russia over the US and UK will suddenly seem obvious. There will be, I expect, a Chinese or a joint Chinese-Russian proposal for negotiations instead of war, and if the US/UK invasion idea does not have EU support, not sure we’ll get our way. That’s the day the world stops the US. With a proposal at the UN. And the work the Israelis have been doing to secure the support of the UK won’t have the payoff they are hoping for.

Possible, anyway."
Responses are less optimistic (Eurotrash will always be trash), but we have to start seeing Brexit as the equivalent of the Holocaust.

Note that his whole Patel incident is regarded as a trick, that Patel was working for May, and only was forced to resign when she clumsily got caught and thus threatened May's deniability. The whole thing is even more complicated if we assume the Zionists were behind the leak.

Comment by Oilman2 at Moon of Alabama:
"I'm just going to suggest that the inbreeding among the various royals in KSA is a factor in their mental processes. Having met around 12 or so of the lower end of their princelings, I can tell you all that two of them had no fingernails and another two had ungulate nails. Both of these are caused by inbreeding. This same proclivity to marry sisters and cousins, to keep the money in the family, throws hemophilia and reduced mental capacity offspring. Both of these are quietly kept secrets in KSA.

Anyone who has met a few will know that the majority are small in stature and share numerous physical characteristics, many of which are indicative of inbreeding at this point in time. This could very well be a factor in why KSA can be led about by others and why they often make strategically poor choices.

Never imagined that my seeing obvious inbreeding among royals while in the oil business might have a bearing on events like this, but there it is. It is perhaps of benefit to admit the possibility of MBS as an idiot, but ruthless, offspring. Then again, he could just be following suggestions from another (Kushner) idiot son-in-law.

These guys seem to run in ever smaller circles as global money is held in fewer and fewr hands."

Rate per bungle

Those sweet, sweet shekels:  "What did Israel hope to gain from Priti Patel's secret meetings?" and "UK minister Priti Patel secretly urged aid for al-Qaida via Israel" and ('Climate Barbie' edition) "Catherine McKenna takes responsibility for tweet praising Syria" and "The Greek Occupation" (Shamir).  The seemingly never ending corruption makes me sick.

The beauty of it is that even lowly 'student politicians' can find themselves generously beshekeled, and receive the early training they need to graduate to real politics and grow the big pockets and artful palm-up skills needed for real beshekeling:  "Israel boycott fails at uOttawa student union, but pro-life group loses".

What is the going rate in shekels these days for a 'bungle':  "Swiss admit drone test bungle in Golan Heights".

"NBC Calls Hugo Chavez a Dictator, Guardian Cheers Actual Saudi Dictator".  "More ‘Fake News,’ Alas, From the New York Times" (Bacevich).

"Whose Team Is He On?" (Marshall; the level of crazy is breathtaking):

"Is Saudi Arabia bluffing on Iran?" An actual Iran-Saudi war would last about five minutes.

"EU, U.S. affirm Lebanon support, diverging from Saudi".  Reflecting possible concern about Salman's longevity.

"China and the US: Rational Planning and ‘Lumpen’ Capitalism" (Petras).  A lot of the comments reflect the utter cluelessness of the American Exceptionalists, explaining why imperial decline is inevitable and irreversible.

Particularly puzzling and troubling

Tweets by Barak Ravid on Israeli diplomatic use against Hezbollah of the Hariri resignation/removal by the Saudis.  ""Explosive" Leaked Secret Israeli Cable Confirms Israeli-Saudi Coordination To Provoke War" (Durden).  Obvious war preparation (and some Israeli diplomat didn't like it, and leaked the cable, or the Israelis wanted it to be known).

"Saudi Purge a Part of Murky Developments in West Asia That Presage Escalation of Conflict":
"The Trump presidency has affiliated itself very closely with the crown prince and has extended solid political support to the kingdom in its confrontation with Iran and, since June this year, with Qatar. There are reports of close personal ties between the crown prince and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, who, among other responsibilities, is heading the president’s efforts at promoting peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Curiously, Kushner, designated as senior adviser to the president, visited Saudi Arabia on an unannounced tour, a week before the purge; he spent four days in the country, returning home on October 28. He was accompanied by deputy national security adviser Dina Powell and the US envoy for the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt. After Saudi Arabia, Greenblatt visited Amman, Cairo, Ramallah and Jerusalem.

The conclusion is unavoidable that during the discussions in Riyadh, certain major policy decisions were taken that would have serious implications for the West Asian political and military scenario. These would have included the US green signal for the wide-ranging purge of possible opponents of the crown prince and the decision to initiate confrontation against Hezbollah, and by extension Iran, in Lebanon."
"Pepe Escobar: The Inside Story Of The Saudi Night Of The Long Knives".  Chabad versus the CIA?  Note the deep problems that the Saudi war on Yemen is causing.

"What is actually happening in Riyadh? Everybody should be on alert, US and Israel are establishing a ‘front’" (Karagül).  Wow.  Mohammed bin Zayed (UAE) versus Turkey, Israeli war on Lebanon/Hezbollah, an attack on Iran, the military destruction of Qatar (and perhaps a coup), refighting in Syria and Iraq to obtain a Zionist/Saudi result, the reestablishment of Greater Kurdistan, and breaking Saudi Arabia into three states on the UAE model.  It would be funny, and ironic given the recent Turkish mischief, if Turkish awareness of the evil plans saves the Middle East from its complete devastation.

"What is unique about the rule of Muhammad bin Salman" (Angry Arab).  Complete reversal of the consensus governing that came out of local rulers sitting around a fire at night in the desert.  Even more than his consistently bad decisions, the reversal of what the Saudis princes believe is their true strength through the decades is what is going to finish Salman.

"Saudi Arabia Is About To Confiscate $33 Billion From Four Of Its Richest People".  When we criticize Salman, let's not get ahead of ourselves, for stripping the worst thieves of their loot to restock the treasury from whence the loot was stolen is simply a splendid idea.  Let's see:  Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, George Soros, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg . . . . - Americans could fix their infrastructure, and pay for free health care and free education through college, all on the foundation of morally righteous thief stripping.  This kind of thing is going to have to happen everywhere - with optional helicopter explosions and deaths in gun fights - in order to rebuild all our societies from the waste to which they have been laid by the monsters.

"Why WikiLeaks Was Right: Rigging the Democratic Way" (Kampmark).  Note the unbelievably corrupt Warren, who could have done something with her knowledge at the time, but decided instead to continue in her careerist grifting.  She has form on this sort of thing.  Also remember, exactly like Hillary (and like Trump, but in reverse), she is a Republican posing as a Democrat.

"Donna Brazile, the “Rigged” Democratic Primary, and Relitigating 2016" (Strether).  Long and detailed analysis backing up Brazile.  Brazile is actually quite careful and accurate in her denunciations, but the Clintonistas have created straw man versions of what she has said and written to give their counterattacks some credibility.

"Donna Brazile Has A Few Theories About Who Might've Killed Seth Rich" (Durden).  'Patriot'. Given what we're told his role was in the DNC, it must have been his typing and filing skills, and nothing to do with leaking embarrassing internal documents to WikiLeaks.

"Intel Committee Demands Fusion GPS Bank Records; Suspects Journalists Paid To Spread "Russian Collusion" Claims".  Another neat reversal of the claims made by the Cintonistas against Trump.  I know you are, but what am I?

"There Is A Lucrative Espionage Industry For Covering Up The Crimes Of The Rich" (Johnstone).  Oddly misses the point that Weinstein got a special kind of help from his special pals.  The general story that rich people can pay for 'fixers' isn't a story worth writing.

The Farrow piece:  "Harvey Weinstein’s Army of Spies".  Farrow's now doing the only journalism in America, certainly the only journalism that might just have an effect on ameliorating the lives of the large class of victims.  He is literally risking his life in the spirit of Casolaro and Webb and Hastings.  Noah Oppenheim!

Putin/Trump Derangement Syndrome should be in the next edition of the DSM.  "It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health."

See also:  "As Weiner Enters Jail, Outlines of Anti-Clinton Scheme Emerge"!!!  The Chuck Johnson Lolita honeypot conspiracy to take down Hillary through Huma (the first signatory of the letter above)!  If you are bat-shit insane, the pieces are all coming together:  "‘Alt-right’ figure who set up Assange meeting refuses to cooperate with Senate intel probe".

"The Sexual Harassment Storm in British Politics. Defence Secretary Michael Fallon’s Fall" (Kampmark). "Britain’s Defence Secretary Fallon resigns in anti-democratic “sex pest” scandal". There are so many politicians involved in these crimes that the powers that be can now use them as a tool to prune those it wants removed for other reasons.  The ones that aren't removed can live under the threat of blackmail for the rest of their careers, making them even more compliant than usual.

"Washington's Wonderful World of Corruption" (Giraldi).  Note the thick CIA spin here.  As good as Giraldi is, it is worth remembering that he is CIA.  It is good to see what real CIA thinks of Woolsey and similar neocon stooges.

The Trump-koi story was a real, and textbook, example of 'fake news' (link may be iffy as The Daily Stormer bounces around the internet like the Wandering Jew, so see 'Miscaptioned', but not 'False').

Apology

I'm switching ISPs (finally) so no posting for a while. The new Farrow New Yorker article on Weinstein is worth while for the extreme use by Weinstein of 'ex' Mossad agents (Farrow tweeted it is the first time an article made him fear for his life). Also, we know now why the Saudis removed Hariri - it is to claim that the only political check on Hezbollah has been removed, thus posing an existential threat to Israel, who now has its casus belli to attack Lebanon.

Entire box

"Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC" (Brazile).  It is amazing that the financial manipulation of the donation solicitation mechanism and distribution by the party for the sole benefit of one national nominee - something the Clintonistas blamed on Bernie - was actually done by Clinton (in the most corrupt way imaginable), that the Russian financial corruption ascribed to Trump by the Clintonistas actually occurred (and drew repressed official notice), with the connivance of Barry, and was for the sole benefit of the Clinton family, that the American election manipulation still blamed by the Clintonistas on the Russians also actually occurred, but the only serious and important manipulation was done for the sole benefit of Clinton, and, finally, that the identity politics card played by the Clintonistas, with Clinton running almost solely as a representative of women and families (while providing absolutely no policies that would actually benefit women or families), is funded by Jewish billionaires who are serial rapists and pedophiles. All the sins described by the Clintonistas are actually sins they committed against Democratic party members and the American people.

"Four Viral Claims Spread by Journalists on Twitter in the Last Week Alone That are False" (Greenwald).  The Clintonistas are having trouble countering what she actually said, so they make up stuff to create straw men they can shoot down.

Meanwhile, in Canada:  "Liberal fundraisers held family millions in offshore trust, leaked documents reveal":
"“Our government has long known — indeed we got elected — on a promise to make sure that people were paying their fair share of taxes,” Trudeau said shortly after his election victory. “Tax avoidance, tax evasion is something we take very seriously.”

Two generations of Liberal fundraisers — Stephen Bronfman and his godfather, 88-year-old retired senator Leo Kolber — are tied together in a complex offshore structure that amassed $60 million (U.S.) in a tax haven beyond the reach of tax collectors in Canada, Israel and the U.S., a newly leaked trove of documents reveals.

Buried in the Paradise Papers, a massive leak to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which includes the Toronto Star and CBC/Radio-Canada, are more than 5,000 pages of internal records detailing how the Bronfmans and Kolbers invested in Israel through two offshore trust funds in the Cayman Islands.

It was a two-family affair: Stephen Bronfman personally lent millions to the Cayman trust that handled his family’s investments in Israel, run by Leo Kolber’s son, Jonathan, 55.

Offshore trusts are perfectly legal. Wealthy Canadians have long used them as estate-planning tools for moving wealth that has already been taxed in Canada to offshore jurisdictions with far lower — or even zero — taxation. If that wealth were left in Canada, tax would have to be paid on its investment returns every year.

Internal email correspondence and financial records in the Kolber trusts appear to show evidence of bogus records to hide payments, false invoicing and six-figure gifts to avoid paying tax, raising red flags for experts consulted by the Star and CBC/Radio-Canada.

To remedy tax concerns over the years, the Bronfman and Kolber advisers kept two sets of books, opened shell companies in tax havens including Nevada and the British Virgin Islands and created other offshore trusts, working the laws of three different countries to circumvent taxes, the records appear to show.

“This definitely merits an audit by the Canada Revenue Agency,” says Denis Meunier, former director general of compliance at the CRA.

“What strikes me is the multi-jurisdictional location of the trusts and implications for the tax authorities that are involved, creating over time, with changing legislation, a more complex arrangement. Whether in the end, all tax obligations for all jurisdictions have been met is a matter for tax authorities to decipher,” said Meunier, who also served as assistant director of financial analysis at Fintrac, Canada’s money-laundering watchdog."
Then, lots of background on shekels, which, of course, explains a lot.  Remember also that the Bronfman's are so rich because of the profits of illegal bootlegging.

"Israeli-Saudi Tandem Adjusts to Syria Loss" (Crooke).

"The Fall and the Fall of Hariri" (Kadi), and its comments.

"Moscow Outmaneuvers Washington’s Kurdistan Project" (Engdahl).  While the dead-enders - Israel and its puppet Americans - continue to play ideology and nationalism cards, and lose, the winners - Russia, China, and Iran - consistently win with actual economic development (not to mention control of the physical movement of resources based on geography and alliances).  I still fear that the immediate collapse of Kurdistan was a little too convenient and easy, and that Barzani-controlled forces also backed down from confrontation with Iraq, meaning that there is more to this story yet to unfold.

"Did Russia's Iranian Energy Deal Kill Four Birds With One Stone?" (Korybko).  Note that the corrupted Armenians chose the wrong horse, and are thus permanently screwed.  People (eventually) notice these things.  It would be a huge shift if the Indian government, for once, decided to act in in the national interests of India!

"Cartoon of Dershowitz mingled appropriate satire and anti-Semitic imagery".  Worst spider drawing ever.

"After Balfour" (Khalidi"):

"The overwhelming Arab majority in Palestine (then around 94 percent of the population) appears only in the most backhanded way, as the “existing non-Jewish communities.” The statement does not recognize them as a people — neither the word “Palestinian” nor “Arab” appear in the declaration. The British government offered this majority “civil and religious rights” but no political or national rights.

In contrast, Balfour ascribed national rights to what he called “the Jewish people,” who, in 1917, represented just 6 percent of Palestine’s population. Ironically, most of the Jews then living in Palestine were either Orthodox or Eastern Jews (mizrahim), who were overwhelmingly non- or anti-Zionist. In this context, the United Kingdom’s decision to back Herzl’s call for Jewish statehood, sovereignty, and control — softened in the deceptive language of British diplomacy to “a national home for the Jewish people” — had portentous implications. It meant the world’s most powerful nation would support implanting a foreign majority in Palestine at the expense of the indigenous people.

That is, the Balfour Declaration announced that the Palestinians now faced the eventual prospect of losing control of their nation to the Zionist drive for sovereignty over a country that was then almost completely Arab in population and culture. This prospect may have seemed farfetched at the time, but it became a reality just three decades later."
"The Real Promise of the Manafort Indictment" (Bershidsky).  The paradox is that the real dirt on Manafort held by Mueller relates to the kind of money laundering that must not be discussed in Washington, and has nothing to do with Russian interference in American politics. Mueller's job, in a nutshell, is to bluff Manafort into making up some anti-Trump collusion allegations in order to avoid the technical corruption charges.

"Google escalates blacklisting of left-wing web sites and journalists" (Damon).  "Who’s Afraid of Corporate COINTELPRO?" (Hopkins).  Quiet, almost undetectable, censorship is the worst kind.

"Four For Friday - More On The Island And A Child Rapist That Needs To Be Brought To Justice" (CDaN).  It is funny how many of these new shocking revelations have been on the gossip sites for years (#2 is the guy at Nickelodeon who is constantly mentioned).  For example, Richardson's assaults were almost a running joke.  By the way, the big, big fish that others seem to have been sacrificed to protect is Geffen.

Ne'er-do-wells

Tweet (Amir):
"This is a bigger interference in the election than all Russian ads combined. Twitter just admitted to hiding 48% of tweets about  DNC leak.This is a bigger interference in the election than all Russian ads combined. Twitter just admitted to hiding 48% of tweets about  DNC leak."

"Manafort Indictment Underwhelms, Poses No Immediate Threat to Trump" (Scofield).

"How Obama and Hillary Clinton Weaponized the ‘Dossier’" (Szamuely).  Extremely good.

Curiously, the Mueller work burnishes Trump's reputation.  The rag-tag cast of characters around Trump reflects the fact that he was shunned by the traditional swamp operatives of Washington politics, and was forced to rely for help in his campaign by anybody who would dare - participating would get you blackballed - to show up.  He wouldn't be President today if the last of these ne'er-do-wells didn't happen to be Bannon (with Mercer's money).  "Mueller Mugs America: The Case of Baby George Papadopoulos" (Stockman).

"Iran’s snub to US has meaning for India" (Bhadrakumar). Iran is countering the neocon inevitability-of-war argument - the one they always use - by emphasizing the real back channel relations of the two countries.

"Panic Hits Hollywood and Media Elite: Which Harasser Will Be Outed Next?"  "Today's Blind Items - The Financier" (CDaN).  Spacey's Bohemian Grove camera:  "Blind Items Revealed #6" (CDaN).  "Today's Blind Items - The Island" (CDaN).

Taibbi's explanation is better than Ames' 'satire' one.  Will any victims come forward?  A lot of powerful people would like to see Taibbi silenced.

Explaining the bizarre belated CIA dump of bin Laden material:  "Neocons Push Dubious Paper To Allege Iran - Al-Qaeda Connection" (Moon).  It reminds me of this example of a neocon lie (and we know how those lies turned out!):  "THREATS AND RESPONSES: THE CZECH CONNECTION; No Evidence Of Meeting With Iraqi" (Risen).  Angry Arab on general CIA (or Kristol?) forgery incompetence:  "The Bin Laden documents: do I smell a US propaganda scheme?".

Kristol has been getting his recent warmongering funded by Singer, but back in the day BigJew was too smart to get its fingerprints all over this obvious treason, and he had to go to Christian Zionists, particularly Scaife, to fund PNAC (which was, of course, instrumental in producing the string of lies and PR that led directly to the disastrous American attack on Iraq).

"Is The "Moderate Al-Qaeda" Set To Target Hizbullah?" (Moon).  The rebrand, and just when bin Laden is back in the news - they really think Americans are stupid!  Al Qaeda would be no match for Hezbollah, but might be used to draw Hezbollah resources during an illegal Israeli attack on Lebanon.

"The case of Ouroba Barakat: not a single Western newspaper corrected its early stories that they were assassinated by Syrian regime" (Angry Arab).

"Iraqi counter-offensive roils Kurdish Regional Government".  Read the last two paragraphs, for the usual Zoggery!

"This week a world leader much worse than Donald Trump is visiting the UK – but I don't see any protest from MPs" (White).

"Britain still proud of its shameful role as patron of Israel's occupation" (Cook).  We're now seeing the downside of this strategy as Israel continues to rely automatically on a failing US and is thus not getting what it demands (e.g., war in Syria, Kurdistan).

A scalp too far:  "Facing outcry, UK Labour reverses expulsion of anti-Zionist Moshé Machover" (Winstanley).

"House Democratic Whip Resists Effort to End U.S. Involvement in Yemen War" (Fang).  Hoyer.

Tweet (Greenwald)  (Trump's ace in the hole is that he has no plausible opposition, except in his own party):
""Warning of a 'weakening Democratic brand,'” pollsters say "voters don’t see them as alternatives" to Trump b/c of no focus on economics:"
Tweets by Kumail Nanjiani‏ on the peculiar lack of political involvement in the decisions of technologists.

"Catalan Independence Flounders on the Rocks of Reality" (Wight).  It is completely impossible to find even the slightest sympathy for these entitled fuckers.  Puigdemont scurrying like a cornered rat is symbolic of the whole mess, a mess that should have been avoided had he gone to Brussels first and asked them what would happen if he went down this road.

Tweet (CSIS Canada) (the poor kids must be devastated - you know that horrible moment when you discover your parents are Peeping Tom losers?!):
"We have lots of grade 9 students finding out this morning that their parents aren't really travel agents... #KidsToWork"

More layers than a wedding cake

"Woody Allen Was Going to Perform at the Wedding of the Amazon Executive Ousted for Harassment".  "Playboy Puts Brett Ratner’s Hugh Hefner Biopic on Hold Amid Sexual-Harassment Allegations".  It is good to start the day with a laugh.

"What everyone has largely ignored about the Weinstein scandal" (Greenhalgh).  The fundraising war of the Republican pedophiles versus the Democrat rapists.  There is something oddly anti-feminist about this, as if the group of blushing ingenues can only be saved from the Khazar hordes by another group of patriarchal men.  It sounds like something Roger Stone could come up with.

Vance, bought and paid for:  "Embattled DA defends not prosecuting Weinstein, Trumps over the years".

"Kevin Spacey’s Statement Blasted by GLAAD, Rose McGowan, Billy Eichner, and More".  The homosexual lobby has spent decades with one of the largest PR campaigns in history, largely through 'Hollywood' (note the url), to establish as a fact - a fact, an indisputable fact! - that pedophilia and, more to the point, pederasty/ephebophilia have absolutely nothing to do with homosexuality, and Kevin Spacey wrecked it all with one short change-the-subject PR release!  First comment!!!:  "Why hasn't Bryan Singer denounced him yet?"

A lot of these guys are sexual deviants, and some are outright psychopaths, but listening to the details of the fumbling, coarse, cringe-inducing wooing attempts of Weinstein and Ratner I'm hearing guys with zero 'game', not the mark of psychopaths.  These Khazar violations are starkly political, exactly paralleling the parasitic violations of the American body politic which have led directly to massively destructive wars in the Middle East which have largely destroyed the United States as a functioning country:
"“What I’m saying, Doctor, is that I don’t seem to stick my dick up these girls, as much as I stick it up their backgrounds — as though through fucking I will discover America.  Conquer American — maybe that’s more like it.”"  

Rose McGowan was suspended from Twitter right in the middle of her Weinstein revelations, which caused a firestorm resulting in Twitter saying it was just temporary.  I can't believe Twitter could be so tone deaf, and thus assume that Twitter's connections to Wall Street, and thus 'Hollywood', mean that this was a desperate ploy to allow Weinstein to buy some PR time from the barrage of uncomfortable facts.  We lose sight of the fact that we are speaking of enormous amounts of money here - billions could be lost - and the powers that be are pulling out all the stops, even in cases where it seems to embarrass them and implicate them in the scandal.  "Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan fears months-old warrant aims to 'silence' her".  I would literally fall over dead in shock if this wasn't due to shekels finding their way into the pockets of Virginia officials.
