It was really repetitive

"Paper ballots protect against hacks, but other election cyberthreats loom".  Canada steels itself for that rascal Putin and his damned bots!

The UAE is trying to restart the war on Qatar.  "Qatar denies intercepting Emirati civilian aircraft".

"Prince Alwaleed Moved To Highest Security Saudi Prison After Refusing To Pay $6 Billion For Freedom" (Durden).  "Swiss Newspaper Reveals: Secret Military Cooperation Between Saudi Arabia and Israel".

"LAST STEP IRAN: What Our Recent Protests Were Really About" (Ghashghavi).  It should be no shock that Iranians know what is going on.  It is instructive that American 'journalists' treat Iran as if it was on the far side of some distant star, when they could fly in any day they wanted and ask questions.  As the Empire is destroyed by ZOG, the only people who can't be allowed access to the truth are Americans.

"Ahed Tamimi is the Palestinian Rosa Parks" (Love).  Israel is so utterly bad, so evil, that it is impossible for a moral and decent person to come to grips with the reality of it, even if the Jew-controlled media weren't also involved in a massive conspiracy to cover up for it.

"US media reverse Ahed Tamimi’s reality" (Brown).  As far as I can tell, Newsweek is an organ for David Jang, a quasi-Moonie evangelical Christian, which explains why it is so consistently embarrassing.

"New South Carolina Law Will Make It Illegal to Criticize Israel" (Striker).  With helpful illustration of King Zog.

When I first read this, I thought it was a parody, another woman incapable of hanging up the phone or walking to the door and leaving:  "Aziz Ansari Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Photographer" (is 'sticking his fingers down my throat' a thing?):
"“It was 30 minutes of me getting up and moving and him following and sticking his fingers down my throat again. It was really repetitive. It felt like a fucking game … most of my discomfort was expressed in me pulling away and mumbling. I know that my hand stopped moving at some points, I stopped moving my lips and turned cold.”"
You have to fear there is a whole generation of snowflake women incapable of running their own lives but very capable of whining about what they allow to happen to them.  Requisite apology:  "Aziz Ansari Issues Statement After Sexual Misconduct Accusation: ‘I Took Her Words to Heart’". I hope this at least produces some material for him.

"CIA and the Assassination of Leaders Overseas" (Platov).  Not to mention all the Russian diplomats.

The theory that it was a false flag attack by Syria or Iran to force the Russians to stay!!!:  "Who Really Attacked Russia’s Air Base in Syria?" (Iddon).

The Clarification:  tweet (Cow Eye Press):
"Not a Trump fan, but have to give him his due here: he is exposing America's essence in ways our best satirists could only dream. Enjoy the show while it lasts because we won't see performance art like this, on a scale this grand, for generations. #shithole #maga #artasspectacle"
"Bill Clinton Triggered, Denies Clinton Foundation's Haiti Funds Were Used For Chelsea Wedding"(Durden).  Given the way we found out about this, through WikiLeaks, there seems to be no chance that the substance of the story is wrong.  The Shithole, appropriately, funded Chelsea's wedding!

This is weird when you know, as we do, that Dean was the IC's insider whose job it was to set Nixon up:  "John Dean: Nixon ‘Might Have Survived If There’d Been a Fox News’".

Menschian / mostly just depressing / Groyper

Just watch - the phony Hawaiian scare will now be used as an excuse for WWIII on the basis that Americans have a right not to be scared by bullshit, so the American government has to act to remove the plausibility of a North Korean missile threat.

It's almost as if Nash or Gillray or Rowlandson were still around, a new golden age of cartooning.

In case you are not keeping up, when Matt Furie made an intellectual property claim to Pepe, the alt right largely switched to Groyper.

Wikipedia has inspired various, superior, parody sites:  "Windians".

Stink tanks can't possibly win any argument on the merits, so they use their political power to shut down venues of dissent:  "Neocon Think Tanks Not Russian Media Are the Enemy Within" (Wight).

"Moby's "CIA Friends" Asked Him To Spread Word Of Trump-Russia Collusion On Facebook" (Durden).  'Menschian'!

"Democrat Senators publish a deeply disturbing and profoundly racist report about Russia" (Mercouris).  Dossier problems seem to have led to a doubling down on the McCarthyism.

"WSJ Calls For End To Trump Dossier "Silly Season" - Declassify It & Let The Public Decide" (Strassel).  Shockingly woke from the WSJ!

The best of the best on #Russiagate:
  1. "Did President Obama Read the ‘Steele Dossier’ in the White House Last August?" (Smith);
  2. "The DOJ and FBI Worked With Fusion GPS on “Operation Trump”…." (sundance); and
  3. "Did Glenn Simpson Lie to Congress?" (Smith).
I wonder why Smith is so uniquely excellent on this issue while normally being a crude Zionist propagandist.  For example:
"For if the FBI and Department of Justice used a piece of opposition research paid for by a political campaign as evidence for a warrant to intercept the communications of a rival campaign—and the questions asked by congressional investigators suggest they did—then we are now living in a very different America than the one that generations of civil libertarians and small-government conservatives alike desired to maintain, and which large majorities in Congress have repeatedly voted for. The DOJ, the FBI and perhaps the CIA would be embroiled in a scandal likely to have long-lasting and sweeping consequences for intelligence collection, national security, and the safety and privacy of American citizens, to say nothing of how it will demoralize federal law enforcement, which will appear to be mired in partisanship and political corruption.
Even more disconcerting is the increasing likelihood that the Steele dossier was used as a platform for a Russian information operation, which successfully managed to leverage nearly the entire American press corps and sections of the security bureaucracy toward the goal of encouraging Americans to rip their own country apart."
See also:  "Politicizing Steele’s Raw, Unverified ‘Intelligence’" (McCarthy).

"Neo-Nazi behind Daily Stormer website Andrew ‘Weev’ Auernheimer 'is of Jewish descent, his mother says'".  Weev's extreme technical prowess is what has kept The Daily Stormer on the internet during the unprecedented multi-faceted attack against it.  The interesting issue is whether the fact that so many 'neo-Nazi' leaders turn out to be Jews is some kind of weird 'self-hating' psychology, or an actual conspiracy to create a fake enemy to complain about.

""We Know Who They Are": Putin Claims "State Provocateur" Behind "Terrorist Drones" In Syria" (Durden).  The list would be the US itself, or Britain (working out of Cyprus), or Israel.

"Venezuelan Food Company Caught Burying Alive Millions of Chicks".  There are some interesting issues concerning the class cohesiveness of the 0.1%.  Big Venezuelan companies are so concerned about removing socialism that they are willing to forgo considerable profits as part of the conspiracy.  "Western Journalists Threaten Venezuela" (Emersberger).

"Trump Turns on Pakistan" (Margolis).  As usual, Zionism clearly interfering with real American national interests.

"Great Moments in Google: “American Inventors”–Almost All Black" (Sailer, from September):  "Bing’s list is more fun than Google’s, which is mostly just depressing."  This kind of thing should give us all pause, as we automatically assume the objectivity of search results.  The algorithms are powered by peanut butter.

'Shithole' Haitians are still being punished for having the temerity to revolt in 1804!:  "No Regrets for Making Haiti a 'Shithole'?" (Sanders).

"Blind Item #9 - Trafficking" (CDaN).  Note the link to Aangirfan in the comments (and other surprisingly woke areas of discussion), as gossip crosses paths with our kind of stuff!

"Why is Qatar being blockaded and isolated?"  Note the author!!!  This is completely out of sync with the usual pro-Saudi, anti-Muslim-Brotherhood slant of current Zionist PR.

"Liberal Zionists can’t talk about the shooting of Mohammed Tamimi" (North/Weiss).

"NOTHING FUNNY: Disgusting Pictures of Comedian Jerry Seinfeld at ‘Anti-Terror Fantasy Camp’ in Occupied West Bank".

"How anyone who questions the White Helmets narrative became victims of the Guardian propaganda machine" (catte).  Monbiot is lower than whale shit, just another vile supremacist hiding behind another issue, in this case environmentalism.  "Request to Guardian for response & right of reply to Solon White Helmets article".  "The Guardian, White Helmets, and Silenced Comment" (Hayward).

"The Persecution of Julian Assange" (Roberts).  White hat.

"Two party system".

"And Then They Came for James Franco … " (Sailer).  The standard cynical conservative comment on many of these revelations (which isn't to say that it is wrong - see also):
"It’s that second movie I signed a contract to do full nudity in for you that was really exploitative. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me for not going to the NYT earlier."
Professional 'feminists' are creating a complex guide to male-female relations based on body parts and geographical location (after you pay for three martinis you may graze the knee in the bar), while somehow completely ignoring the power relationships that surely are the real heart of #metoo.  "What the actual fuck is this."  Were I a conspiracy theorist I'd almost be inclined to think they were intentionally hiding the real issues.

Hawaii

It is obvious that whoever wants WWIII, now upset that the two Koreas have decided to talk things out, arranged for a phony missile scare and, perhaps underestimating Trump, assumed he would take the bait and 'retaliate', thus starting a real WWIII.  I sure hope patriotic Americans are aware of what traitors within their midst they are up against.

Diab

This is one of the most egregious and outrageous examples of Khazar manipulation of governments and oppression of human beings that I have ever seen:  "Updated: French courts drop terror allegations against Ottawa prof Hassan Diab"  and "'We're all at risk': Hassan Diab's lawyer on what's wrong with Canada's extradition system".  These goddamn fuckers have had a completely innocent man in jail for years because it suits the Pure Evil narrative of their supremacism!  We're all at risk as long as we tolerate rule by Khazars!

Note that Trudeau, who swans around in a cloud of Bronfman shekels, and who has done sweet fuck all to help Diab, is now trying to appropriate some credit for this!

Exactly the same trickery has restarted in Argentina: "Jewish prosecutor Alberto Nisman was murdered, Argentine federal judge rules".

With cases like Diab and Assange, we need a new underground railroad to move victims of injustice away from their oppressors.

Related:  "Sessions creates team to focus on Hezbollah financing and drugs".

"Privileged American Jews are safe thanks to ‘Israel’s might’– Roger Cohen" (Weiss).  It is just another manifestation of supremacism - to save a Khazar hangnail we're morally entitled to slaughter the rest of the world.

It seems like half of WSWS is now dedicated to outrage over #metoo, not a good look for them, and one which greatly diminishes their credibility on what is supposed to be their focus:  "Washington Post columnist goes after Woody Allen’s “lechery”".  Faced with the Great Shiksa Pogrom of 2017-18, I can only ask the obvious question, who funds WSWS?

Despite all the phony concerns about 'due process' - which doesn't even apply, as I see none of these guys in court - it is difficult not to notice that the three big fish, Allen, Geffen, and Spielberg, still walk free.  "Four For Friday - Someone Help Me" (CDaN).  Guesses:  "Ariana Richards (Lex/"Jurassic Park")/Steven Spielberg".

Trump is an insane, senile, monster and any power he has is a threat to human civilization, except when it is time to dole out more power:  "The Same Democrats Who Denounce Donald Trump as a Lawless, Treasonous Authoritarian Just Voted to Give Him Vast Warrantless Spying Powers" (Greenwald).

"Why ‘Coercive Diplomacy’ is a Dangerous Farce" (Porter).  Part of Imperial Decline is that you think you have to act like an asshole and get everything you want by obviously pushing people around, or everybody will think that you have lost your power and are weak.  The paradox is that consistent misfires of this strategy lead everybody to that conclusion anyway.

"North Korea Is Walking Back War – And Pundits Are Strangely Disappointed" (Feffer).  Disappointment background, Weiss, from 2007:  "30 Years Ago, Neocons Were More Candid About Their Israel-Centered Views".  The same small group from the stink-tanks are all in favor of American militarism, warmongering, and wars for the simple reason that these things are thought to be 'good for the Jews'.

"The Times discovers ‘the best interests of the American people’ in the Russia case" (Weiss/Johnson).

"‘Curricularizing Israel’– the Hebrew program in suburban Chicago schools".  Note that the underlying assumption is that American Jews, and only American Jews, are going to save the Israelis and the Palestinians and the world from the evils of Zionism, if only there wasn't some shekel push-back by the Jewish billionaires, the essential Weissian lite-Zionist lie which is intended to buy time for more killing and land theft.

"Meet Hen Mazzig, Israel’s “guru” of grotesque behavior" (Cronin).  Hasbara has been such an abject failure I'm inclined to let them have at it.  Supremacists are always their own worst enemies as their supremacism hides their own problems from them.

Unstable

"Russia knows who staged attacks on Syrian base & it’s not Turkey – Putin".  Putin is saying these weapons were factory-made from an identified sophisticated country, but disguised to look like terrorist field-made weapons.  A false flag.

"Syria - Erdogan (Again) Switches Sides - Delivers New Supplies For Terrorist Attacks" (Moon).  Managing Erdoğan is like herding cats.  You basically have to stay on your line and ignore the provocations, believing that the realities of the geopolitics will eventually cause the Turks to fold their weak hand.  One of the reasons why Putin is so successful is that he uniquely always manages to keep emotions out of the calculations.

"Rikers Guards Are Allegedly Sexually Assaulting Visitors in the Bathrooms".  This sounds like something you might hear about rural Mexico.  Americans are somehow still convinced they live in a first world country.

"These are the Palestinian children Israel killed in 2017" (Angry Arab).  I'm trying to imagine what would happen if any other country went on a systematic intentional child murdering spree.

Defunding UNWRA - as opposed to defunding the PA, which would cost the Khazars money in replacing the self-brutalizing - is one of the holy grails of modern Zionism, and President Kushner is hard at work on it:  "Trump to punish Palestinians as example for rest of world" (Abunimah).

"No Jews, no 9/11, says leading US neo-Nazi".

"Overwhelming Majority of Americans Oppose Jewish Neo-Con Wars" (Striker).  From 2014, a collection of illustrative cartoons.

Spousal privilege:  "Huma May Have Dropped Divorce To Keep Weiner Quiet Over Clinton Email Probe".  Sloppy headline - it doesn't keep him quiet, it just means he can't be compelled to testify against her (and, perhaps more importantly, she can't be compelled to testify against him).

I can't even:  "Feinstein Makes Startling Admission: "I Got Pressured" To Release Fusion Transcripts" and "Feinstein Admits She Was Mentally Unstable When Releasing Fusion GPS Transcript" (Durden).  Released so the Republicans, some of whom demonstrate very keen prosecutorial expertise, couldn't cross examine subsequent witnesses on contradictions with the Simpson testimony.  Now everybody can bone up on the Official Story.

"The Trump Dossier Timeline, A Democrat Disaster Looming by Publius Tacitus" (with timeline and unanswered questions):
"When the entire episode about the creation of the Trump dossier (by former Brit spy, Christopher Steele) and its dissemination (by Steele and the Democrat hired contractor, FUSION GPS,) to the FBI and the press, is fully exposed, the American people will be confronted with the stark dilemma of how to deal with the fact that there was a failed domestic coup attempted by members of the U.S. intel and law enforcement community. The facts will show that the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the CIA and the FBI conspired and meddled in the 2016 Presidential election. They lied to a Federal judge about the origins of the dossier and used those lies to get permission to spy on Trump and members of his campaign staff."
"The DOJ and FBI Worked With Fusion GPS on “Operation Trump”…." (sundance).  FISA queries used by a private contractor to establish the basis for a partisan FISA warrant to snoop on the Trump campaign.  Rogers continues to be the only non-traitor in the bunch.

"The FBI Hand Behind Russia-gate" (McGovern):
"Despite his former job as chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence section, Strzok had the naive notion that texting on FBI phones could not be traced. Strzok must have slept through “Security 101.” Or perhaps he was busy texting during that class. Girlfriend Page cannot be happy at being misled by his assurance that using office phones would be a secure way to conduct their affair(s)."
"Ecuador and Assange" (Murray). The international law.

"Google's Fact-Check Feature Targets Conservative Sites" (Durden).  Oddly sloppy in making the proof so easy and obvious.

"Coverage Of Iran Protests Illustrated With Protests Not In Iran––organized By Fringe Cultists" (Johnson).  Shameless MSM lying, as always.

The video analyzed by Moon of Alabama (crediting M. H Arsalai for finding it):  "Military Investigates Leaked Afghan Combat Video" (Durden).  Classic reaction, concern about the information getting out, not the content of the video.

Thanks, Obama.

Bounce the whiteman

"US Military Intelligence Has “Weaponized Democracy” Worldwide" (Korybko).

"NATO’s Fraudulent War on Behalf of Women" (Szamuely).  "Serbia’s Sovereignty as a Nation State: “A Policy of Complete Surrender”. Kosovo and EU Integration" (Trifkovic).

"Your King Husayn" (Angry Arab), linking to:  "JFK files: CIA lined up actress for date with Jordan's King Hussein during visit to United States" (read the whole thing):
"Eager to please the young leader of a promising potential ally in the Middle East, the CIA enlisted the help of billionaire Howard Hughes’s longtime fixer to find women for Jordan’s King Hussein, according to documents recently made public.

That help for Hussein during his spring 1959 trip to the United States, newly released documents from the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy show, likely turned into a relationship between Hussein and B-movie actress Susan Cabot that may have produced the son who eventually beat Cabot to death in 1986."
Is your child texting about decolonialization?

Asignmetrical warfare:  "DC Council renames street in front of Russian Embassy after Putin critic" and "Turkey-UAE Spat Escalates: Ankara Rename Abu Dhabi Embassy’s Street".

"Well, no one thought the Turks were subtle ... And I like Turks." (Lang).

"Ecuador Grants Citizenship To Julian Assange Amid "Threats To His Life"" (Durden).  It would not shock me if Trump quietly ordered the sniveling Brits to honor the passport by looking the wrong way at the appropriate time.

"Senate Democrats accuse Russia of ‘assault on democracy’ in conspiracy-laden report".

Passport

Maybe Gab was right:  "BREAKING NEWS: Ecuador 'gives Julian Assange a passport' – just a day after it threatened to kick him out of London embassy in row over tweets".

Hell just froze over and pigs can fly:  "UK minister on Ahed Tamimi: ‘Israeli soldiers should not have been there’".  He's not exactly a minister, but still  . . . :  "The truth is the soldiers shouldn’t have been there and the young woman shouldn’t have needed to do what she did.  We should be working hard to get a settlement for this issue so that these young people don’t have to continue to do what they’re doing."  May and the Israeli ambassador will take turns kicking him in the ribs tonight, and the sincere, heart-felt apology will come tomorrow.

Landlocked

"US, Israel step up hybrid war in Syria" (Bhadrakumar).  Good stuff.  The proposed Yinon statelet of Syrian Kurdistan is landlocked and surrounded by very unfriendlies, and the good guys know they have only to block any possible passage to the Mediterranean, which is being done quickly, as I type, and the Khazar-stooge fuckwit Americans are fucked.  I'd almost suggest that the Pentagon should invest in some maps.

Shows

"I lost so much money, I’m doing shows in Israel."

"Are Israeli Jews the Most Sadistic Butchers in the World?" (Bacon).

"'God Help Us if This Gets Out': The Full Transcript of Yair Netanyahu's Wild Tel Aviv Night".

Posted already, but a working link:  "Ahed Tamimi’s arrest sheds a disturbing light on how children are targeted by Israel" (Cook).  It is obvious that Israeli snipers are focusing on targeting Palestinian children, and are working their way through the Tamimi family, but we're told the unforgivable outrage is returning a slap.

"Surrounded by Neocons" (Giraldi).  Giraldi wouldn't have to keep writing this same column if this same small group of supremacists didn't have this same media outlet to promote the same type of horrible wars for the same horrible supremacist reasons Americans have already seen too much of.

Just what we need, the Latin neocon!:  "D-Day Venezuela".

"Dylan Farrow Asks Why Hollywood Says It’s #TimesUp For Everyone But Woody Allen".  I used to really like 'Manhattan' but now its just a combination of cringe-inducing and hilarious-in-the-wrong-places.  To a large extent he got away with it as he has always, even today, looked much younger than he actually is.

"New Whistleblower Site FaithLeaks Releases Confidential Documents About Child Sexual Abuse in Jehovah’s Witnesses Community".  I never realized these annoying people were pervs as well.

"Highly Classified Spy Satellite Is A "Total Loss" After SpaceX Mission Fails" and "Highly Classified Satellite Plummeted Into Indian Ocean After SpaceX Launch, Official Confirms" (Durden).  Too bad they can't ask that rapscallion Putin, who could reliably launch their spy satellites.  Note that the plan is to have Musk, in his never-ending grifting, murder astronauts to be sent to the space station.  We have to entertain the possibility that all the weird contradictory statements are actually hiding the fact that the satellite was launched successfully (but why, given that the big intelligence players should be able to identify it in the sky, unless of course it is up there to do something illegal under international law?).

The "technologically advanced state" referred to yesterday?:  ""A Strange Coincidence": US Spy Plane Circled Near Russian Base During Massive Drone Attack" (Durden).  Curiously, another example of asymmetrical warfare that is surely going to come around to bite the American Empire on the ass.

"Top 10 Revelations From Leaked Fusion GPS Testimony" (Durden):
"After Senator Dianne Feinstein leaked the transcripts of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's Congressional testimony - tainting every single witness from here on out who can now corroborate their testimony . . ."
Note point 6 - Simpson lied about Nellie Ohr.  Also, they also really don't want to release client list.

I'm sorry, but all these repeated efforts to bolster the Trump-Bannon/Trump-Mercer break just make the story look even less plausible.  They are doing all they can to put Bannon on the extreme outside, from whence he operates best.

"Voters Drafted a Reluctant Trump Because They Hated Hillary That Much" (Rall).  Trump reluctance is the new narrative from the Wolff book, but the facts don't match.  I'm sure he entered the race as a favor to golf buddy Bill to muck up the Republican nomination (and perhaps even serve as a phony nominee for Hillary to run over in a landslide), and I'm sure he had periods of lack of enthusiasm.  Having said that, when at the end Mercer's numbers guys pointed him to a narrow path to squeaking out a win, he went out and did the work in the Rust Belt states, work that Hillary wouldn't - or, likely, couldn't (fits!) - do.

Excellent internet sleuthing:  "Afghanistan - U.S. Special Forces Commit Drive-By Murder (Video)" (Moon).  As with police brutality directed at minorities, we're seeing stuff that has been going on for years, in this and other wars, due to the ubiquity of video cameras in phones and the ability to widely publish on the internet.

"The New Gilded Age: First Time Arrogance, the Second Time Vengeance" (Rosen).

"Trump Clears Path for Assange to Leave London" (Corsi).  A lot of posters at Gab are convinced Assange has already left the embassy.

"Big Nibba Harvard Jew Professor Admits the Alt-Right is Right About Everything" (Batty).  Watch the video!  His certainty in his counter-examples is bizarre.  The fact that groups that are poorer - because they are systematically discriminated against - commit more crimes isn't interesting, nor is it at all clear that, absent the actual starvation in NK caused by factors other than communism, the places he is so sure are better to live in are/were better to live in.  Of course, his lousy opinions are less interesting than the fact he apparently considers it now chic to say them out loud.

Tragically

"A tribute to James Dolan, co-creator of SecureDrop, who has tragically passed away at age 36" (Timm).  With Crazy Pierre and his well-paid stooges mounting yet another attack on WikiLeaks funding (Timm is also part of the hilariously monikered Freedom of the Press Foundation, whose board of directors, except for Barlow, is suspicious as heck, kind of the all-stars of the phony opposition), and another 'suicide' of a perceived enemy of the IC - and we might want to reexamine whether the Swartz suicide was actually a suicide - we are clearly in the middle of a new program of dissent clean-up by the swamp and its minions.

It is telling that in any one day Assange does more real damage to IC power than these phony opposition characters will do collectively in their lifetimes, with most of them spending their time trying to curtail/derail the damage to the Empire done by Assange.

Related:  "How The FBI and DOJ Intelligence Units Were Weaponized Around Congressional Oversight…".  Rogers was the one guy who wouldn't go along with the Barry/IC plotting.

Not remotely credible

"Russian army repels attack by 13 militant drones on its Syrian compounds - MoD":
"Russian military have repelled a massive drone attack on its bases in Syria, which was carried out by militants, Moscow said. The extremists may have been aided by a “technologically advanced state,” it added."
Added:  "Israel attacks Syria with jets and ground-to-ground missiles, claims Syrian army".

Marshall, unsuccessfully and comically trying to handle the paradox of why Trump, who supposedly had all these high-level crooked and treasonous contacts with Russia, ended up having to use ridiculous staff members to make ridiculous contacts with ridiculous Russians:
"To me the sheer ubiquity of approaches to the Trump campaign – the significance of which the Trumpers constantly deny – actually tells us this. (I’m actually surprised the smarter ones haven’t made this point. It’s not exonerating. But it is complicating.) If Trump and Putin had an understanding going in – you do this and I’ll do that in return – do you really need operatives courting Trump’s doofus foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos in London. Or having Trump’s oligarch friend’s publicist setting up a meeting with Don Jr. and a lawyer most known for working to overturn the sanctions tied to the Magnitskey Act? These are clearly overtures, dangles as intelligence professionals call them – almost all of which got a positive response. If the plan is set, you shouldn’t need so many of what amount to cold approaches like this.

On the other hand, Trump’s connections to Russia, Russian money and the machinations of Putin-aligned oligarchs runs so deep, it is simply not credible to imagine that these pre-existing relationships with Russia and Russian money is unrelated to what happened in 2016. Not remotely credible."
"Russiagate Turns On Its Originators" (Roberts).

"Ahed Tamimi’s Arrest Sheds a Disturbing Light on How Children are Targeted By Israel" (Cook).

"Let the two-state solution die a natural death" (Falk).

"Breaking Down Bannon's Betrayal Of Trump".  Korybko accepts the entire Trump/Bannon/Wolff story at face value.  Note that Bannon has apologized for his attack on Don Jr. (or rather claims he was misquoted), but not for his attack on Javanka.  I seriously doubt that there has actually been a falling out between Bannon and Mercer, but letting that be the story allows Mercer to avoid taking blame for any fallout of the kayfabe.

"Kushner family’s extensive business ties with Israel deepen: Report".

"IN DEPTH: Haley's massive UN fail over imaginary Iran crisis" (Flores):
"The optimal script was that the US was supposed to have some sort of false flag successfully executed, snipers on roof tops, something that would produce protester fatalities. But as it's been demonstrated historically, the US generally goes on ahead with the various moving parts of its plans even though critical pieces failed to fall into place. So they roll these out in a hedged form."
With all the virtue signalling at the Golden Globes, they hilariously gave a major award to the notorious James Franco, and, even more spectacularly, honored Kirk Douglas!!! It would have been less offensive to honor Weinstein, who may be a terrible rapist, but at least, as far as we know, hasn't actually murdered any of his victims.  The people who run 'Hollywood' just sent an unambiguous message that no amount of slogans, pins, and black dresses is going to change the fact that the power over careers still rests with the same small group who are going to continue to humiliate, rape and, yes, murder, with impunity.

Heists

"Clinton, Sachs' Role in Post-Soviet 'Privatizations' Deserves Scrutiny – Analyst".

"Scottish shell firms used to launder tens of millions of dollars looted from Ukraine by country's former leaders revealed". You have to wonder if we're hearing about historical looting as a distraction from the looting by oligarchs connected to the current junta in Ukraine.

"Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one" and the Saudis clearly own this one.

"Who Killed The Iran Protests?" (Durden).

Tweet (Dan Cohen):
"Israeli soldiers killed Ahed's cousin Musab today, shot her cousin Mohammed in the head two weeks ago, killed her cousin Rushdi in 2012 and killed her cousin Mustafa in 2011. But @Newsweek says the Israeli occupation is the victim."
Tweet (Michael Bueckert):

Gorilla channel

"New Video Emerges Of ISIS Convoys Leaving Raqqa Under US Coalition Watch" (Fadel).  Cell-phone video - from Kurds and other riff-raff members of the US-stooge Syrian Democratic Forces - confirmation of the story from the BBC, an amazing story in itself about the care and nurturing of terrorist proxy armies by the US, and that it came from the no-truth desert of the BBC.

"Pro-Israel editor’s joke about Iran-Iraq War provokes response".

"Pepe Escobar: Why There Won't Be A Revolution In Iran".  Contrast with CIA-asset Cole, who calls the basij "street thugs loyal to the ayatollahs (the paramilitary ‘basij’)".  You can feel the CIA fury that the spirit of the Islamic revolution lives on.  The big problem with this Zionist nonsense is that it prevents actual Iranian reforms, as protesters back down specifically for the reason that they saw exactly what the Ziowahhabicans did to Syria starting with manipulating street protests.  Of course, the Ziowahhabicans don't want the reforms they espouse for fear reforms would strengthen the Iranian government,.

"Western Arrogant Doublethink on Iran":
"The irony of Western doublethink is rich. Over the past year, there has been a recurring theme among Western governments and media of “foreign interference” allegedly in their political affairs. Russia has been the focus of these allegations, even though there is no evidence to support such claims. The ever-so pious Western governments and media have no such reservations about “foreign meddling” when it comes to their brazen rush to pile into Iran’s internal politics as shown this week. Or in the forthcoming Russian presidential elections.

Western interference is not just limited to pejorative statements on Iran’s protests. The US State Department has openly admitted that it is communicating via social media with anti-government protesters. This active involvement by Washington is a repeat of similar outside agitation during the so-called Green Movement disturbances in Iran back in 2009. As mentioned above, one can imagine the hue and cry in Western capitals if Iran, or Russia, or some other foreign state, was agitating anti-austerity demonstrations in Washington, London and Paris.

Iranian authorities have sound reason to suspect that Western interference may be even more sinister. The protests – while largely peaceful – have included what appears to be an organized violent element. At least one police officer was reportedly shot dead and police stations have come under armed attack. The rapid escalation of violence and burning of public property suggest a subversive agenda. Comparisons have been made to the way protests in Syria in 2011 were exploited by Western powers for an agenda of regime change which led to all-out war in that country."
"Chaos Strikes As 1.4 Million Afghans Have 30 Days To Leave Pakistan" (Durden).  "A foreign leader — Netanyahu — set Trump’s agenda in Middle East, Michael Wolff book says" (Weiss). Even more interesting if you think, as I do, that the Wolff book is basically Trump PR, a sort of SOS ("Several of his sources, he says, were definitely lying to him, while some offered accounts that flatly contradicted those of others.").  Jared is a very costly mistake for the US.

"Judge Rules Fusion GPS Must Turn Over Bank Records" (Durden).  "Devin Nunes Demands Remaining 9,500 Strzok Text Messages, Expands Investigation Of Russia Probe" (Durden).  "GOP Senators Ask For Criminal Probe Of British Spy Who Wrote "Trump Dossier"" (Durden).  Finally, the Republicans are dealing with #Russiagate by turning it around on the Clinton campaign and the IC.  You have to assume the Republicans will back off once the Clintonistas raise the white flag and back off trying to start WWIII.

"Four Years of Ukraine and the Myths of Maidan" (Cohen):
". . . the day before Yanukovych was forced to flee the country by an armed street mob, he signed an agreement, brokered by three EU foreign ministers, to end the crisis peacefully by forming a coalition government with opposition leaders and agreeing to an early presidential election. That is, a democratic resolution of the crisis, privately endorsed by President Putin and President Obama, was in hand. Why none of the Western parties defended their own agreement, insisting that it be honored, remains uncertain, though perhaps not a mystery."

Lizard brains

"Iranian prosecutor points finger at CIA, Israel and Saudi Arabia for unrest".  Michael D'Andrea.  "Why is Trump’s man in Iran, Michael D’Andrea, missing from conversations about the protests?" (Fisk).

"Best Served Cold: Responding to the Iranian Protests".  So batshit crazy that the batshit crazy Wittes at the batshit crazy Lawfare and his batshit crazy editorial board had to change their entire editorial policy to keep this kind of thing out in the future.  These are your greatest American minds in action!

"Trump's Tweets Are a 'Narnian Wardrobe to His Lizard Brain'".  Two patriots named Goldberg, on 'opposite' sides of the political spectrum, discuss America.  I'll just leave this here:  "The Latest Anti-Semitic ‘Alt-Right’ Meme: ‘Fellow White People’".  It is often the case that the only good thing you can say about Trump is the nature of the people who don't like him.

"Jewish Identity Politics and the Struggle to Liberate Palestine" (Najjar).  The Khazars cycle through genetic Judaism, cultural Judaism, religious Judaism, and political Judaism depending on which argument they are attempting to make.

"ISIS Declares War on… Hamas!" (Anglin).  As usual, helpfully illustrated.

" . . . the entire ‘controversy’ over the Steele Dossier is meaningless in any substantive sense. Even if it were literally propaganda from the DNC comms office it wouldn’t change the facts about what the FBI and then Mueller investigations have already uncovered. It is classic misdirection and mendacity in its most direct form." (Marshall!).

"FBI Launches New Investigation Into The Clinton Foundation" (Durden).

"Fallout: ABC Abruptly Cancels Special After Rolling Stone Founder Is Accused of Sexual Misconduct".  "Photographer Terry Richardson Under Investigation by NYPD for Sex Crimes".

"Trump on Saudi Leadership Shake-up: “We’ve Put Our Man on Top!”" (Saleh).  I don't know how much more obvious it could be that Wolff is working for Kushner to produce exactly what Trump considers to be the most favorable spin.  Everybody seems to have bought it, despite the obvious problems with the story:  "They have not explained what possessed Trump to approve the Wolff book . . . ".

"Bannon loses support of pro-Trump billionaire backer over media fights".  This is like Vince McMahon standing in the middle of the ring lighting fire to your wrestling contract while Trump smirks in the background.

Steve the heel

"Trump Tower meeting with Russians 'treasonous', Bannon says in explosive book". Kayfabe.  Though it is a heel-rich environment, in this case Bannon is the heel and Trump is the face.  This is a Mercer-driven, I'm guessing, plan to get rid of Jared, for MAGA.  Trump's not entirely on board, because Ivanka, but it is entertaining enough for him to play along and see where the chips fall.  This feels off, and out of character for Bannon, because it is a ploy.

Spontaneous

"Henry Kissinger: White House Is ‘A War Between Jews And Non-Jews’" (Wallace).

"Erasing Obama’s Iran Success" (Pillar):
"Meyer’s piece suffers from a sourcing problem in that it relies heavily on just two sources who currently are employed by, or affiliated with, organizations in the forefront of opposing the JCPOA.  One of those sources, David Asher, is on an advisory board of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, which has become mission control for undermining and trying to kill the nuclear agreement.

Whether or not such institutional connections affected what was told to Meyer . . . "
"Iranian Protests: Deep State's Unfinished Business" (Cartalucci).  Brookings, a Saban project.

Spontaneous (Doran).  As opposed to 'far from spontaneous'.

"Iranians Take to Streets to Denounce Violence and Show Support for Islamic Republic".

"Where We Can Agree on Iran".  We've reached levels of chutzpah that break our chutzpah-measuring machines!

"Iran at UN accuses US of 'grotesque' meddling".  But that rascal Putin spending 79 cents on BLM Facebook ads is the end of the world.

Americans still don't seem to realize that even though the War On Iran is impossible, and won't happen, allowing the Khazars to continue to monger it still takes a serious toll on the United States.  Every single move Trump is making under Jared's firm Khazar direction is backfiring as he drives countries together to counter the insane American threats.

"America's endless, invisible wars" (Linker).  All Wars For The Khazars.

"The fate of Jerusalem is not a Manhattan real estate deal" (Lang). More Jared.  Empty threats, as 'aid' to the Palestinians is just money to bribe the Palestinians to suppress themselves, money that Israel would have to pay if the US doesn't do it.  We've been through this before.

Full retreat from the now dangerous dossier:  "The End of the Beginning" (Marshall) and  "The Republicans’ Fake Investigations" (!).  "Fusion GPS Co-Founders Deny Knowledge Of Trump Tower Meeting, Dossier Triggering FBI Investigation" (Durden), noting that they used their privileged NYT outlet in a rather unconvincing way, leaving out much of the important allegations of sleaziness they really needed to rebut.

It's the wives, a Killary back-channel operation!

"Facebook deleted accounts at the behest of US, Israeli and German governments" (Niemuth):
"The current campaign of censorship against Palestinians began after high-level meetings in September 2016 between Facebook representatives and Israeli officials including Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked of the far-right, pro-settlement Jewish Home party. Shaked once notoriously referred to Palestinian children as “little snakes.”

After the meetings with Facebook, Shaked publicly bragged that the company had granted 95 percent of more than 150 requests by Tel Aviv for removal of content during a four-month period that the Israeli government declared “incitement.”"

"Wilderness of Mirrors" (Morley). On Angleton, Nosenko, and mole hunting, including raising, and dismissing, the possibility that Angleton himself was the Soviet mole in the CIA.

"Google Maps’s Moat" (O’Beirne).  This article is wonderful, and must have been a tremendous amount of work (it also looks like Google PR).  Note how Google created new data - orange buildings, a real-life useful concept - by combining its street photos with its aerial photos.  Also note that Apple, while trying to do the same thing, is orders of magnitude behind Google, which should lead investors to wonder if there is something deeply flawed at Apple.

Let’s make that very clear

"Iran - Few Protests - Some Riots - U.S. Prepares The Next Phase" (Moon).  Strikingly similar to Color Revolution techniques used in Syria (and elsewhere).  You build on some actual populist protests, containing legitimate progressives who want reform but not regime change (there is a legitimate case for reform away from neoliberalism in Iran, exactly as there was in Syria).  Once the real protesters have had their say, and are turned off by the suspicious types who seem to be hijacking the protests, you turn to professional agents provocateurs who transform the protests into riots and violent attacks against property and police (including Maidan-style false-flag attacks on civilians).  All the while, the (((media))) creates the impression through its usual lying that the protests are much more significant than they really are.

Tweet (Glenn Greenwald) (and following tweets:  "Bill Kristol is not advocating to kill anyone. Let’s make that very clear"):
"Bill Kristol, at his TV home (MSNBC), prances around feigning concern for The Iranian People. @tparsi rudely reminds everyone Kristol has long advocated dropping bombs on The Iranian People. MSNBC host angrily intervenes to defend Kristol. This is 2017"
Robert Parry has some lame excuse for not recently publishing a huge article every day on #Russiagate, and turns philosophical.

The unspeakable three things of interest about #Russiagate:
  1. the fact that the hack was a leak and the identity of the leaker (i.e., the uninvestigated assassination of Seth Rich);
  2. the fact that we have good evidence that FBI employees were actively working as agents for the Clinton campaign in leaking dirt to both the media and members of Congress (referred to here);
  3. the fact that somebody with Hillary connections going back to the Rose Law Firm - and there are way, way too many conspiratorial connections throughout for any of this to be a coincidence - appears to have been extremely involved, probably with the Obama Administration and maybe Barry his own self, in creating most of the basis of #Russiagate (referred to here).
The two other striking things are that while Trump surely has a lot of real dirt to examine, the Clintonistas and FBI have concentrated entirely on made-up stuff (presumably because the real dirt implicates 'donors' associated with life-long Democrat Trump), and that none of the interesting unspeakable issues have made it very far in even the alternative media.

The manufactured oppo also made its way into the FBI materials to obtain the FISA warrant for Page.  Judges don't look kindly on being lied to, even in a rubber-stamp situation.  Thus the need to turn the spotlight from Page to Papadopoulos.

A lot of the paradoxes of #Russiagate derive directly from the fact that the oppo was developed as part of an emergency strategy, only to be used if Trump was doing particularly well (likely due to Clinton having an unhideable medical emergency), and was never actively used as the Clinton campaign anticipated a landslide win for Clinton well into the evening of voting day.  The oppo has now been repurposed from emergency PR should Killary have a public fit, to the basis for an affadavit in the FISA warrant against Page, to some kind of Hail-Mary Trump-removal scheme, or at least a political check on the exercise of his powers as President.  That's some good oppo!

"Huma Abedin Forwarded Top Secret Passwords To Yahoo Account Hacked By Russian With Odd Clinton Connection" (Durden):
"While Clinton and Abedin woefully mishandled classified information, they were never prosecuted - after an investigation led by disgraced FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok determined that Clinton's behavior did not warrant litigation. "We do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private email accounts of individuals with whom Secretary Clinton was in regular contact from her private account," said former FBI director Jim Comey in the agency's exoneration of the former Secretary of State.

In this case, the "hostile actor" was none other than a man employed by the very bank Bill Clinton gave a 2010 speech to for a cool half-million dollars. What a small world!"
"Bridgewater Executive And Family Killed In Costa Rica Plane Crash"(Durden).  The conspiracy theory floating around is that this, and the Sherman hangings, are part of a campaign to remove 'donors'.

"Israeli judge asked the Palestinian girl Ahd al-Tamimi: "How did you slap our soldier?" She answered : "Remove the handcuffs so I can show you how.""
"Shmuley Boteach’s unhinged attack on Lorde will only help the movement to boycott Israel" (Gupta).  Violent racist group supremacists always make the same mistakes in their fury at being disrespected by their inferiors.

Tweet (Caleb T. Maupin):
"So, a UK spy agency has been caught setting up fake twitter accounts, pretending to be Iranian. #IranianProtests #Iranprotests People I know on the ground tell me these protests are actually rather small. #Iran"
And of course you as would expect, the (((media))) has been reduced to replaying tapes of previous protests, or even playing tapes of large protests in other countries, in order to create the illusion that there is large-scale dissent in Iran.

"John Bolton: “Our Goal Should Be Regime Change In Iran”" (Wallace).

"Blind Items Revealed #40" (CDaN).  The murdered actress is Heather O'Rourke.   From the comments:

"Canada’s foreign policy annus horribilis" (Lam). Canadians are going to be paying the price for Trudeau glibness for decades (and having an actual Nazi as foreign minister doesn't help).

"How a Liberal Scholar of Conspiracy Theories Became the Subject of a Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory" (warning: non-Farrow New Yorker link!).  The click bait title makes you read it so you'll see who is being unjustly treated.  A Cass article without one mention of the ol' ball and chain!

"“One lady said, ‘Louis C.K. masturbated in front of me, ruined my comedy dreams,’” he says in the bit. “Word?’ Well then I dare say, madam, you may have never had a dream. Come on man, that’s a brittle spirit. That is a brittle-ass spirit, that is too much, this grown-ass woman.” He also mentions Schachner’s story more specifically. “I know that sounds fucked up, I’m not supposed to say that, but one of these ladies was like, ‘Louis C.K. was masturbating while I was on the phone with him,’” Chappelle says. “Bitch, you don’t know how to hang up a phone? How the fuck are you going to survive in show business if this is an actual obstacle to your dreams?”"

Fourteen-hour tour

Tweet (Jessica Willey):
"Breaking: Russell Ziemba, 49, is the man arrested at downtown #Hyatt with weapons. He told police he was there to celebrate #NYE, brought weapons in so they wouldn’t get stolen. @houstonpolice believe he had no intent to use them. #ABC13"
Sounds legit: 'Sir, would you like to check your RPG, or are you going to take it up to your room?'

"Hillary Clinton backer paid $500G to fund women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day, report says".

"Weiner Laptop Doc: Assange Warrant Issued 2 Weeks After Swedish Election Leaks Warning" (Durden).  This looks like a motive for the Swedes abusing their own legal system to attack Assange. 

What we may also be seeing here is Weiner's particular, and illegal, interest in seeing classified documents relating to Israel.  Is Weiner a Mossad operative?

"Crisis for Mueller: Lindsey Graham calls for new Special Counsel to investigate Trump Dossier and FBI" (Mercouris).  Due to his remarkably high levels of blackmailability, Graham isn't reliably able to follow through on any real attack on the IC, but the tax changes were such a boondoggle for traditional supporters of the Republicans we may be seeing a shift towards support for Trump with some push-back against the IC.

"2018 will see US fighting three and a half wars in Middle East" (Bhadrakumar).  This extreme not-MAGA could be fixed if only Jared were led away in handcuffs and placed in the deepest available dungeon.

The Steele dossier is proving to be very dangerous from the point of view of the Clinton campaign, McCain, and the FBI, so the NYT is attempting to shift the narrative away from it:  "NYT Publishes Report ‘Debunking’ FBI Use Of Dossier, Immediately Shredded For Fake News" (zeropointnow) (containing some killer tweet threads - note how Mary B. Jacoby, wife of Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, to whom she was married in Little Rock, and daughter of Jon E.M. Jacoby, an executive at Stephens Inc., and former file clerk at Hillary Clinton’s Rose Law Firm, had an April 2016 fourteen-hour White House guided tour, and is finally receiving notice, fitting into a grand GPS Fusion/Hillary Clinton/Nellie and Bruce Ohr/FISA Court/Barack Obama/IC/Steele dossier conspiracy theory that might make your head spin, much of it based on that excellent foundation article by Lee Smith).

"Statement On Oz Katerji’s Request To Be Given A Platform After ‘No-Platforming’ Rania Khalek" (Gosztola).  Khalek is driving both the Zionist 'peace' scammers (JV'P') and the Saudi-financed anti-Assad operatives crazy.  Of course, there is an overlap of interests as the Khazars want a 'piece' of Syria.

"France denies report its tax authority has ‘secret’ department devoted to Jews".  'Anti-Semitism' is the word used for Khazars having to pay taxes.

"Lorde called a bigot over cancelled Israel concert in full-page Washington Post ad" Boteach, clueless!  One of the main reasons that the resistance of young women is so dangerous is that it is impossible to take PR swipes at them without embarrassing yourself.

"Why Ahed Tamimi’s slap is so thrilling to Palestinians" (Kanaaneh).  She's doing the resistance that spineless beshekeled Palestinian politicians won't do.

Looks like another government conspiracy to me:  "Video shows Egypt’s church gunman calmly walking away".

"The Hidden-in-Plain-Sight Mechanism of the Super-Wealthy: Money-Laundering 2.0" (Smith).  The title is awful - call it what it is, tax evasion.  I do like the concept of 'control fraud' (which, again, could stand a better name).

Many of the Iranian protest signs are in English, and the chants have a peculiar interest in Iranian government support for Hezbollah and the people of Gaza, not something your average legitimate Iranian economic protester would have an interest in.  Tweets by hadi on other peculiarities.  Of course, we've just been informed of the Khazar plans for Iran:  "Report: US, Israel sign secret pact to tackle Iran nuclear and missile threat".  Also:  "Report: U.S. Gives Israel Green Light to Assassinate Iranian General Soleimani" and "Israeli minister encourages Iran protests, says Israel is not involved".

Happy New Year!
