Burnt Phuds

"The Philip Cross scandal: How Wikipedia is being used against left-wing journalists" (Black).  Telling concentration on pro-Corbyn, and generally anti-war, writers.

"Bibi’s Week, The Jewish Perspective" (Atzmon).  You have to figure that this run of shekeling/blackmailing success will break sometime, but how much damage gets done first?

"Trump Says North Korea Summit May Be Rescheduled" (Baker).  Maybe to the same day!

Tweet (Elon Musk):
"Going to create a site where the public can rate the core truth of any article & track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor & publication. Thinking of calling it Pravda …"
There is a big push by the bad guys and their lackeys to clear the decks, all at once:  "Julian Assange “in jeopardy” of being forced into UK and US detention" (Head).

"Mike Pompeo’s 12-Step Plan for Disaster With Iran" (Ritter).

"Yulia Skripal and the Salisbury WUT" (Murray).  Odd, as the symptoms and testing show it was BZ, or something like that, so it seems irrelevant how much novichok Porton Down has.

"Stormy Daniels Day Was a Portrait of America in the Year 2018" (Holmes).

"Canada’s Trans Mountain Pipeline, Civil Society to Justin Trudeau: “The Time for Investment in New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure Is Over”" (Rowell).  I don't think Justin could have possibly managed worse optics for a huge project to stand behind if he tried.  It is comically awful in every possible way.

"It Only Took Until 2018 For Britain To Get A Conviction In Pakistani Forced Marriage Case" (Sailer).  "Swedish Airports Encourage Nubile Kebabesses to Hide Spoons in Underwear" (Byron).

"Fate of Gaza Dim: Enclaves Surrounded by Hostile Powers Never Fare Well" (Madsen).  Worth reading for the details of the history of similar situations, and accompanying atrocities.

"Gilberto Gil cancels Tel Aviv gig" (Abunimah).  "Video: “Nikki Haley, the blood is on your hands!”" (Abunimah).  Nimrata has a vigorously colorful personal life, with which she is no doubt being blackmailed, and they also appear to have promised her the Presidency, as laugh-out-loud improbable as that may appear to us, if she plays along.

"Review of Thomas Goodrich’s “Summer, 1945—Germany, Japan and the Harvest of Hate”" (Magnusson).  It is instructive that such a massive amount of crime involving 1000s of participants committing the worst types of atrocities that men are capable of has been completely covered up.  Note that a lot of this was considered justified due to the acceptance of allied war propaganda as truth.  Worth contemplating when somebody asserts some conspiracy could not possibly have happened as 'somebody would have talked'.

"History: Italy’s 1937 Ethiopian Massacre Finally Comes to Light" (Makinde).  Note the geopolitical strategy excuses for not doing anything about it - keeping Mussolini away from Hitler, or Italy out of the hands of the communists.  We've got lots of similar big play excuses for not doing the right things now.

"Report exposes UK role in Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen" (Mason).

"Syria Notes - 25 May 2018" (Lang):
" 1.  In the NW the Turkish Army has violated the Astana Agreement's terms by sending a column into Latakia Province (as opposed to Idlib Province) to establish another of their fortified company sized Observation Posts.  This OP is in the Jabal al-Akrad area west of Jisr al-Shugur where the main road approaches the low ground to the east.  In the SW of Idlib Province the Turks are building yet another OP.  IMO they are playing a long game believing that they can retain possession of the Afrin District of Aleppo Province and that Trump will allow them to push the SDF Kurds back to east of the Euphrates and out of Manbij.  Idlib Province is still on the menu as well.  These were all former Ottoman lands.

2.  In the far SW of Syria, the government is massing its forces for an offensive in the next few weeks which will aim to clear and regain all the ground up to the UNDOF line in the Golan Heights and the Israeli fortifications thereon.  Whether or not they have the strength to do that remains to be seen.  The troop list for this large operation includes among others; some TF task teams, 4th Armored Division and Palestinian Liwa al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade).  The presence of this last unit will undoubtedly upset the Israelis."

"Rob Malley and Chris Hayes can’t talk about Adelson’s influence in scrapping Iran deal" (Weiss).

"Michael Cohen’s Still-Missing Ukraine Background Info" (Baker).  The coverage of Cohen and his stable of clients by those suffering from TDS grows increasingly bizarre (TPM is also full of this stuff).  Cohen's relevant client list is mostly from Ukraine (the current enemy of Russia), and other former states in the Soviet Union.  The vast majority of them are Khazars, and all of them could accurately be described as gangsters.  Almost none of them are Russians!  Yet somehow Trump's connection to Cohen, and Cohen's ludicrous list of clients, is somehow supposed to prove #Russiagate!  I haven't yet decided whether TDS is a variant of Alzheimer's, or some new kind of mad cow disease.

"New Forensic Tool Can Predict Hair, Eye, And Skin Color From A Tiny DNA Sample".  "New forensic tool: Using DNA to predict hair, eye and skin color".  They are starting to do sketches of what a suspect might look like based on a dna sample.  Also, new search tools using protein from hair or bones:  "Researchers expand forensic method to identify people using proteins from bones".

"Never Solved, a College Dorm Fire Has Become One Man’s Obsession" (Kleinfield).

Beginning of the end?

"President Bolton Cancels Meeting with Kim After Torpedoing Nearly Completed Peace Process" (Anglin).  The Khazars are doing so well at manipulating Trump, on such a roll of Evil, apparently they decided they could have all the wars, Iran, Russia and NK/China.  The short video at the end is worth watching.  The Republicans are doing quite well politically recently, and it would be fun if this reverses the trend, leads to big Democrat gains in Congress which leads directly to Trump's impeachment, and then possible jailing.  The blackmail material held by the Khazars must be terrible stuff.

Rending / Punked / Sorted it out / chicken guy

"Did Fracking Cause The Hawaii Volcano Eruption?" (Durden).  Read through to the end for the usual angle.

"Gaza killings are rending the Jewish community" (Weiss).  Requisite goy management.  Weiss hears sobs in between the back--slapping and high-fiving.  If you actually read the article, it is a list which completely disproves the title.  Note that even his commentators are getting very tired of the Weiss shtick, but Weiss, the ultimate hasbara troll, labors on regardless.

The recent Khazar massacre in Gaza?  Trump's fault, and Jews are the real victims here!:  "Thanks to Trump and Netanyahu, it's Jew vs. Jew".

"Lying Liar James Clapper Just Lied Again About His Previous Lies About NSA Spying" (Payton).  Clapper has a meta-lie to explain his lying to Congress.  Since it was none other than Meghan McCain who asked the surprising question - shocking, in fact, because one of the mainstays of the (((media))) is never to question these guys in any way - I assume the question was created by Clapper's team to allow him to trot out the lying explanation.

"Second Trump Campaign Spy Was From NSA, Offered Hillary's Emails: Caputo" (Durden).  The problem with the Clintonista apologies for the IC operation against Trump, as spouted by places like Lawfare and TPM, is that mere law enforcement investigators don't keep consistently offering up Russian access to intriguing oppo like these guys did (though it is interesting that this early ratfucking attempt seemed to be packaged as coming from the NSA), and we haven't even heard what Mifsud was doing.  It was entrapment, and a very specific form of entrapment, as it was directed at implicating the Russians, not Trump, as part of the post-Clinton-victory plans for WWIII.  It is actually much, much, much worse than Watergate, high treason in fact. It won't, of course, happen, but people should be hanged over this.

It is funny how often Marshall keeps looking for Russians and running into Khazars (who are usually, of course, called 'Russians' or 'Russian-Ukrainians', whatever that is!):  "Important".

This is amazing, Marshall throwing in 100% with Bolton!!!:  "How Trump Got Punked By Kim Jong-Un".

"Israel lobby group spreads hoaxes to whitewash Gaza massacre" (Cronin).

"Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency Presents "Om kriget kommer" -- by J":
"I ask the Swedes why they don't band together with the other European nations that border Russia, to tell NATO that their intention to wage war with Russia, should be abandoned before it reaches the point of no return. Europeans won't be able to live in nuclear rubble, They have not prepared their nations to live underground.  Russia on the other hand has been preparing to go to ground if and when that time happens."
If Europe wasn't run by such Euro-trash, everybody involved in this warmongering stunt would be rounded up and jailed for decades.  I'd charge them with conspiracy to attempt mass murder.

Tweet (Charles Shoebridge):
"The statement of Yulia #Skripal may be entirely genuine. But if such similarly rehearsed words had been said in a similar way by a UK citizen in the ‘protective custody’ of #Russia, US UK govts & media would very quickly claim they’d been said under duress"
It is exactly like the statements ISIS/al Qaeda hostages are forced to read.  It is a wonder they didn't put her in an orange jumpsuit.  Lucky for her, the British IC probably feels her organs are too poisonous to eat.  Speaking of which, an alleged 'terrorist'/freedom fighter in Canada took a polygraph, and was apparently flummoxed when they asked him if he preferred the human heart or spleen as a snack:  "Canadian ISIS fighter at heart of NYT podcast says RCMP gave him a lie detector test".  To be fair, it is a difficult question, and he was allegedly more of a head-lopper than a human organ eater.  Related (and important!):  "One Year On – The Truth About The Manchester Bombing Scorpion" (Nick for The Saker Blog):
"Press coverage of the trial confirmed that Abdullah and his friends joined the terror group after fighting in Libya in 2011. But the same mainstream media carefully avoided the fact that the Manchester terror cell to which Abdullah, and his close friend Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, belonged was formed as a direct result of the British government and security services trying to use radical Muslims as weapons to achieve ‘regime change’ in Libya.

The Daily Mail was among the media outlets that reported on the conviction of Mohammed Abdallah:

“Footage has emerged of the jihadi linked to the Manchester Arena bomber fighting with militants in Libya before he tried to become an ISIS sniper.

“Mohammed Abdallah and his brother Abdalraouf were at the centre of a Manchester-based terror network which included Salman Abedi, who killed 22 at the Ariana Grande concert earlier this year.

“As unemployed former drug dealer Abdallah was jailed for 10 years today, footage showed him and his brother during a spell they spent in Libya fighting along militants in the country’s civil war.

“The brothers, who grew up in Manchester had dual Libyan nationality, joined the ‘Tripoli Brigade’ when the North African country fell apart in 2011.”

Hold it right there! Because the Tripoli Brigade was not some random bunch of Jihadi crazies. It was a part of the so-called National Liberation Army, the umbrella force organised to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. The NLA was the ground-force backed by none other than David Cameron, who turned the RAF into the air arm of the Islamist rebellion.

It was founded, organised and led by Mahdi al-Harati, a Libyan-Irish citizen. It was armed by the CIA, through the American puppet regime in Qatar. The brigade included officers who had lived most of their lives in English speaking countries including Ireland, Canada, UK and the US.

An article in Ireland’s Sunday World drew attention to relations between Mahdi al-Harati and an unnamed US intelligence agency.

According to the article on November 6, 2011, €200,000 in cash was stolen from al-Harati’s Dublin house a month previously.

The Sunday World reported that a criminal gang working the area found two envelopes stuffed with €500 notes during a raid on the al-Harati’s family home, October 6.

The article, apparently relying on police sources, stated that al-Harati, who has been a Dublin resident employed as an Arabic teacher for 20 years, claimed, when contacted by police, that the stolen cash was “given to him by an American intelligence agency.”"
and (reminds me of 9/11!):
"As he was travelling back to Libya in May 2011 he was approached by two counter-terrorism police officers in the departure lounge who told him that if he was going to fight he would be committing a crime.

But after providing them with the name and phone number of the MI5 officer he had spoken to previously, and following a quick phone call to him, he was waved through.

“As he waited to board the plane, he said the same MI5 officer called him to tell him that he had ‘sorted it out’.”"
Breaking the weird extraterritorial application of insane, beshekeled, American law, which has to happen sometime and might as well happen now, is the main issue in the Iran sanctions.

"Mike Pompeo claims Iran carrying out 'assassination operations' in Europe".  He just made this up, but it is weirdly like actual Mossad assassination operations in Iran (and the Burgas attack was an obvious Israeli false-flag directed at Hezbollah's relationship to Europe).

"As US Tries to Remake Rather than Rebuild Northern Syria, Local Resistance Groups Emerge " (Webb).  The world, and Americans, need to see a lot of American troops in body bags as quickly as possible.  Perhaps the Iraqis could kindly supply, as a humanitarian gesture, some IED experts.

Bibi gets his answer:  "Pullout of Iranian Forces, Hezbollah Units From Syria Out of Question - Damascus".  Note:
"The international coalition led by the United States has deliberately bombed oil wells in Syria, so that the government would not be able to use them, Mikdad said.

"They made it necessary to spend tens of millions of dollars to resume work at these [oil] fields," Mikdad added."
"Syrian official rejects US demand for Iranian withdrawal" (Isachenkov).

"Falsely accusing Palestinians of anti-Semitism is malicious" (Salaita).  Getting involved in this discussion just plays into the Khazar game (just as 'denying' - note the weird choice of words - the Holocaust is the best thing you can do for them).  We need to get to the point where being an 'anti-Semite' - again, totally nuts as a term as it refers to people who are woke about a supremacist conspiracy run by people who aren't Semites! -  is the most distinguished and honorable thing anyone could aspire to be.  There needs to be something like the Nobel Peace Prize, given annually to the world's finest anti-Semite.

I'll just leave this here:  "Image Of Jewish Temple Photoshopped Over Jerusalem Mosque Embroils US Embassy In Controversy" (Durden).

"Report: Angola's envoy to Israel fired for attending embassy opening".  Fired "for harming Angola's good reputation".

You've got to love that Roth, who chronicled #metoo amongst the Khazars like no other (but is, as usual, highly overrated as a novelist by the Khazar-controlled Litarary Criticism Industrial Complex), and decades before the Great Shiksa Progrom of 2017-2018, never got his Nobel as the awarding apparatus had its own #metoo moment.

"Israeli Parliament Reportedly Considers Promoting Kurdish State".  They've been 'promoting' a Kurdish state - an integral part of Yinon - for years.

"Maduro’s Win: A Bright Spot in Dark Times" (Pemberton).  Hear, hear, but he really needs to hire some central bankers who know what they are doing (hint: hire some from Argentina).

"Rudy Giuliani won deal for OxyContin maker to continue sales of drug behind opioid deaths" (McGreal):
"But Giuliani and his team seemed to be also working their Washington contacts. The Purdue lawyers complained to the office of the then deputy attorney general, James Comey, whose tenure as head of the FBI lay ahead of him, that Brownlee was exceeding his legal authority in pursuit of documents from the company.

“The defence lawyers contacted Mr Comey unbeknownst to us and said those guys down there are crazy,” said Brownlee. The US attorney went to Washington to explain to Comey in person. Purdue was not instantly recognizable as a pharmaceutical company to most people in DC. The name was easily mistaken for Perdue Farms, a regional chicken producer well known for its television ads featuring the owner, Frank Perdue. “Mr Comey said, why are you prosecuting the chicken guy?” said Brownlee."
There must have been a big party when the huge bags of shekels arrived at the PMO:  "At the U.N., Trudeau Opposes an Investigation into Israel’s Shooting of Unarmed Civilians – Including a Canadian Doctor" (Lascaris).  Justin's surprising initial remarks must have been a play to get more shekels.

I swear that Trudeau's going to segue directly from ridiculous over-the-top virtue-signaling over identity politics to sending in the Canadian army to murder natives for righteously protesting against an already obsolete pipeline owned by a company from Texas (and that nobody, except for the 'socialist' government of Alberta, actually wants!):  "The Dispossession of Canada’s First Nations and the Kinder Morgan Pipeline" (Petersen).  He's even going to pay the Texans billions for their inconvenience in having to wait for Canadian political discussion of the issue.  Of course, the bigger story is the Canadian government really wants to break the pattern that the US is the only buyer for oil sands oil, and move a lot of it to China (a plan with massive environmental dangers).

Debrothelization

We're living in interesting times.  People generally all over the world haven't been this woke since the 1930s, yet BigJew gets everything it demands:  "Virulent Rat Kikes Celebrate Ken Livingstone Resigning from Labor" (Anglin) (for a less lively account, see here) and "Trump to Unveil New Middle East Peace Plan" (Gorka), hot on the heels of Iran and the embassy move (and accompanying sanctification through blood obtained in massacre).  It is shekels and a constant whining, which eventually wears you down.  When will it end?

"Anti-semitism: Israel’s get-out-of-jail-free card" (Cook).

This is ironic chutzpah:  "Liberman suggests Muslim ad money causes CNN, BBC, France 24 bias against Israel".

"Tehran eyes path ahead after US withdrawal from nuclear pact" (Escobar).  Interview with Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif:
"I ask whether Tehran should expect further Israeli strikes in Syria. Bahmani: “Not for the moment, no. This is just a chapter. A new one may be opened, in a month or two.” "
"Media Ignore Government Influence on Facebook’s Plan to Fight Government Influence" (Johnson). 

"Propornot 2 — Setting Up the Atlantic Council for Lawsuits" (Elias).  The Propornot mystery.  Names Michael Weiss and The Interpreter.  The general slant of both is consistent with the Propornot program, but I don't think we can say there is proof yet.

"Why did Facebook ban The Electronic Intifada’s ad for “Killing Gaza”?" (Abunimah).  I still find it striking that the usual niceties have been thrown out, and (((they))) no longer care how bad things look as long as they tamp down the truth.

"Emma Barnett: A Classic “Philip Cross” Wikipedia Operation" (Murray).  Very specific debrothelization.

"Chuck Schumer Is the Worst Possible Democratic Leader on Foreign Policy at the Worst Possible Time" (Schwarz).  Khough, khough.

"#MeToo at the Cannes Film Festival: All about money and power" (Steinberg).  The commie bros cite Polanski to back up their case!  I still want to know who is paying for this embarrassing campaign.  The 'socialists' have picked their side, the winning and honorable Harvey side:  "Asia Argento Condemns Harvey Weinstein at Cannes Awards: ‘I Was Raped Here, This Festival Was His Hunting Ground’".

Concentration camp guard discusses concentration camp inmate (not to be read if you are prone to projectile vomiting):  "John McCain’s Greatest Fear" (Goldberg).

Trump, who was off to a rocky start but generally held it together, has suddenly, and totally, gone off the rails on multiple fronts:  "President Bolton Announces the Korea Summit May be Canceled" (Anglin):
"President John Bolton, through his puppet-figure Donald Trump, former star of “The Apprentice” who now does a heavily scripted reality TV show called “Wars for Jews” which runs on all television networks and is produced and directed by President Bolton, has announced that he may be canceling the Korea summit – because reasons."
"Today's Blind Items - Which One" (CDaN). The guesses:
"A: Pamela Anderson
B: Kylie Minogue
C: Nicole Scherzinger
M: George Soros
N: Julian Assange"
A fairly obvious PR attack on Assange, including the idea he is being funded by Soros.

Novichok, the new health food

"Philip Cross Madness Part IV" (Murray).  This is interesting as it appears that the hasbara troll farm known as 'Philip Cross' has some kind of insider access to alerts from Wikipedia on any truth that needs to be stomped down, even in odd places you wouldn't expect them to find (which access would explain the airy dismissals from Wales).

Tweet (George Galloway).  One of the problems of using a front to cover for your hasbara is that it is difficult to mount a defense of an fictitious entity.

"Antifa or Antiwar: Leftist Exclusionism Against the Quest for Peace" (Johnstone).  It is not surprising that the usual suspects would want to infiltrate and ruin Counterpunch, but the attempt is so obvious that it is disappointing that the editors would let it happen.  Note how much of this attack turns around a guy named Yoav Litvin (and other practitioners of the 'dialectic' pop up throughout).  What is that, a Somali name, Fiji Islander, perhaps Irish?  I think Draitser is a traditional Maori name.  You have to laugh.

"FBI Informant Stefan Halper Paid Over $1 Million By Obama Admin; Spied On Trump Aide After Election" (Durden).  The three baseline facts about Trump running for President:

  1. everybody assumed his chances of winning even the nomination, let alone President, were somewhere around 0% (remember the guffaws when Coulter named him as the front-runner at being nominated?);
  2. he was so hated by both Democrats and Republicans that he had to make his campaign staff up out the various dregs and riff-raff who hang around Washington;
  3. his campaign was so disorganized there was absolutely no vetting of anybody who offered to help.
"Iran Announces Plan To Stay In Syria As Pompeo Issues Unprecedented Threats" (Durden).  "Pompeo as imperial proconsul" (Lang).  "US Secretary of State Pompeo presents war ultimatum to Iran" (Van Auken).

"Trumpism Folds into Netanyahu-ism, or ‘Neo-Americanism’" (Crooke).

"Peace with a price: Iran promises EU to adhere to nuke deal on one condition".  Does the EU have enough money to pay the American fines?  This is shaping up to be a critically important game of chicken, and Trump has shown himself to be reasonable after receiving an education outside his inner circle.  Lurking around the discussion is that big American companies could find themselves permanently excluded from the biggest profit-making opportunities in the world, just to satisfy a tiny band of supremacists.  Of course, Trump is also further endangering the status of the dollar as world reserve currency, and once that ends the printing presses have to slow down and a lot of old imperial bills fall due.  Iran is also a vital piece of the New Silk Road, so one way or another China is going to have to get involved.  Countries could agree that any American fines were illegal and not enforceable in their courts, and companies and banks could be set up with no American exposure for the single purpose of dealing with Iran.

"Trump Collusion: How afraid should we be of Mohammed Bin Zayed of the UAE?" (Cole):
"The pedophilia angle on Nader needs to be unpacked. Did his activities in those circles in Washington, DC, in the 1980s and 1990s allow him to discover which American politicians and even foreign dignitaries were engaging in secret pedophilia activities, and then to pass that information to foreign intelligence agencies so that these individuals could be blackmailed? It is worth noting, though no one does, that at least allegations have been made against Trump by underaged girls. If Nader had files on “colleagues” in those circles, it might explain why he kept being picked up as useful even after the Prague year in jail. He was in Iraq with Prince’s Blackwater in the 2000s, and then around 2011 suddenly pops up in Abu Dhabi as adviser to Mohammad Bin Zayed, the crown prince."
"Blind Item #8" (CDaN).  The guesses (probably too conveniently tying a lot of current conspiracies together, and the last sentence surely refers to wives of Gulf princes, not Melanie Melania!) (links removed):

'Sources'

"Framing the Trump Campaign as Lackey's of Russia by Publius Tacitus" (my emphasis in red):
"There are still many unanswered questions, but the evidence that now is part of the public record removes any doubt that British and US Intelligence services collaborated in a devious and fabricated scheme to portray the Trump campaign as intent on collaborating with Russia. The evidence was planted and cleverly fabricated. It was done through highly classified intelligence channels, which created a paper trail and provided prima facie "evidence" that individuals with tenuous ties to the Trump campaign where seeking meetings with Russian officials. What was not reported, however, was the fact that the original impetus for those reporting on those communications originated with an individual who appears to be an MI-6 intelligence asset. His name is Joseph Mifsud and I believe that evidence ultimately will establish that he was directed to contact and then feed incriminating information to George Papadopoulos. That information became the foundation of creating a counter intelligence investigation of Donald Trump and his campaign."
and:
"When Papadopoulos communicated to persons in the Trump campaign the results of his meetings with Mifsud and Mifsud's Russian contacts, that information was relayed from the UK to America via telephone and email. Those conversations, without one doubt, were intercepted and put into a Top Secret intel reports (known in intel circles as SIGINT) by GCHQ.

It would be damning if Papadopoulos had initiated the contact with Russian sources and was lighting up the web with requests for info about Russians willing to work with or help Trump. But that did not happen. The impetus to talk about Russia originated with Mifsud, who, based on circumstantial evidence, was a British intelligence asset and was direct to target and bait Papadopoulos. It was Mifsud who raised the specter of the Russians targeting Hillary Clinton (see pp 6-7 of the Statement of Offense):

On or about April 26, 2016, defendant PAPADOPOULOS met the Professor for breakfast at a London hotel. During this meeting, the Professor told defendant PAPADOPOULOS that he had just returned from a trip to Moscow where he had met with highlevel Russian government officials. The Professor told defendant PAPADOPOULOS that on that trip he (the Professor) learned that the Russians had obtained "dirt" on then-candidate Clinton. The Professor told defendant PAPADOPOULOS, as defendant PAPADOPOULOS later described to the FBI, that "They [the Russians] have dirt on her"; "the Russians had emails ofClinton"; "they have thousands of emails."

Mifsud provided the Russian information. Not Papadopoulos. Mifsud's mission of feeding Papadopoulos "Russian intelligence," which the later then reported back to the Trump campaign produced the casus belli (of sorts) to justify opening an FBI counter intelligence investigation. The FBI also was ensnared, most likely. It does not appear the FBI was briefed immediately on these matters. Instead, John Brennan and Jim Clapper built up a pretty sizable intel file, filled with SIGINT reports from the UK's GCHQ, which contained American names and reports of efforts to broker a meeting with Vladimir Putin. Of course they (Clapper and Brennan) conveniently failed to mention to the FBI that the information originated with a UK plant. But it did provide legal cover for unmasking the identities of Trump campaign personnel.

This was not the only "information dump" in place. MI-6 also helped ensure that there was an "independent" source of intelligence--human intelligence. Hence the Steele Dossier, with the first reports being produced in June 2016. It is this combination of SIGNALS INTELLIGENCE and HUMAN INTELLIGENCE, which persuaded the FBI that something serious was going on. While it may be possible that that Comey and McCabe conspired initially with Brennan and Clapper, I do not think that is what happened. Comey and McCabe were duped by Brennan and Clapper into believing that there was actual malfeasance  underway with the Trump campaign. They were naive, even stupid, but not engaged in sedition."
The main reason this operation seems so odd is that the target wasn't Trump - he was irrelevant as he had no chance of winning - but Putin. They were trying to frame Putin for buying Trump, and used the bumbling minor functionaries in the Trump campaign to accomplish this by leading them on using various intelligence operatives.  The bait was a mythological trove of dirt on Hillary held by the Russians.

"All Russiagate Roads Lead To London: Evidence Emerges Of Joseph Mifsud’s Links To UK Intelligence" (Vos).  Mifsud had an unfortunate love, for an intelligence asset, of appearing in selfies, and an extensive and varied list of associates, often of the hinky persuasion:  "United States: who is Joseph Mifsud, the mysterious professor who put the Donald Trump team in contact with the Russians".

"The mysterious work of the Maltese professor identified in the FBI’s Russia probe" (de Haldevang) (a screamingly obvious spy front, as depicted by Hollywood in productions like 'Rubicon' and 'Three Days of the Condor'):
"LCILP didn’t respond to multiple phone and email requests for comment on this story. When a Quartz reporter visited LCILP’s headquarters inside a handsome Georgian building, he found that the office amounted to four people working in an undecorated backroom, all of whom declined to comment."
"A Spy in the House of Trump" (Raimondo) (the second link is worth reading):
"Papadopoulos’s meetings with Mifsud, and Downer, and Halper’s first approach to the Trump campaign (via Carter Page) occurred well before the FBI officially opened its investigation on July 31, 2016. A few days later the FBI sent agent Peter Strzok to London to meet with an unknown person in the Australian embassy (probably Downer). And now we are learning that the preliminary stages of the probe began well before July – in March of that year. Writing in The Federalist, Margot Cleveland asks: “But on whose behalf? And for what purpose?”"
"'The Day that We Can't Protect Human Sources': The President and the House Intelligence Committee Burn an Informant" (Lawfare).  Note how the intelligence assets who ran the entrapment operation are now described as 'sources'!  It is a very American argument deriving from Nixon - and Trump has tried it on from time to time - that the wrongdoing of various government agencies and functionaries has to be ignored as to look too hard would undermine the very foundations of these entities and positions, thus damaging their ability to keep the country running, and safe (though this kind of argument has much more consistency if applied at the executive level, with the IC, in this case, just committing unjustifiable crimes, in fact the worst kind of crimes, intended to lead to WWIII).  In fact, this entire skulduggery is beginning to sound like a reverse Watergate - of course, we now know Watergate itself was a reverse operation, a successful IC plot to remove a President, based on treasonous insiders and the President's own paranoia - with the criminal acts being committed by the IC rather than the President, and the story coming out in dribs and drabs (but Nunes and the dogged journalists working it don't get the hagiographical treatment around Watergate, just the opposite).

Ingénue mourning

"The Other Art of the Deal, Tehran-style" (Escobar):
"Pyongyang was also in the house. The North Korean delegate had produced an astonishing speech, essentially arguing that Palestine should follow their example, complete with a “credible nuclear deterrent."
"Will Trump’s Pyrrhic Victory End with America’s Role as Global Bully?" (Giraldi).  This phase transition has to happen sometime, why not now?  It is inevitable that the Khazar parasite will kill the American host.

Tweet (Matt Taibbi) (link to the supremacism; I assume the JYT still has editors, so whatever this means, it was intentional):
"New York Times op-ed gives a big thumbs-down to “ingenue mourning” of slain protesters."
"Bill Maher and Bari Weiss Cruelly Blame Palestinians for Gaza Massacre" (Stern).  "Israeli Government ‘Justifies’ Killings of Palestinians Saying ‘We Can’t Put All of These People in Jail’".  Supremacists often manage to pass as human beings by mimicking normal human emotions, but they get tripped up in their inability not to gloat by victim blaming, something that is abhorrent to non-psychopaths.

"Did Putin Just Ask For Iran's Exit From Syria In Meeting With Assad?" (Durden).  Obviously not.  Assad is in no position to deliver on such a promise, still needs the Iranian troops, and if they were to leave Putin would have to replace them with Russian troops.  Note how 'journalist' (((Sly))) immediately, in typical Khazar fashion, interprets ambiguous words as answering Bibi's call from his visit to Moscow.

"Russia’s Relationship with Israel and the S-300 Controversy" (Turbeville).  Supplying, or not supplying, S-300s/400s is part of Putin's diplomatic arsenal in dealing with third parties, most notably the US (one of his few tools in dealing with the imposition of sanctions is promising not to deliver defensive tools to an American Israeli enemy).  Note the possibility raised by Webb that the Israelis are cloaking themselves as American, thus protecting their planes from defensive counter-attack!

"Mainstream Media Names FBI Informant Who Invaded Trump Campaign a Week After Alex Jones Broke Story" (Anglin) (he's not wrong):
"We get a lot of press for being the most genocidal website, and the most censored, but we are rarely acknowledged as the most accurate.

Seriously, not even messing with you here – name a single website that has a better track record for absolute accuracy than this one. There is not one.

"Nunes Outraged that [American] Spies Paid to Brush Up against Trump Aides" (emptywheel).  Note, again, the sad deterioration of emptywheel, laid low by Trump Derangement Syndrome, which appears to be a form of Alzheimer's (to be fair, she's picked one quote by Nunes to attack, but the general Clintonista line -  see Marshall's paywalled blog - is that the IC did nothing wrong and was just investigating credible threats of Russian meddling).  Nunes is about the only guy in Washington doing his job, which in this case is hunting down a Nixon-level plot by the American IC and the Obama/Killary operatives to mess with the Trump campaign, while setting up a warmongering narrative to lead to WWIII once Killary won (I think commentator Zachary Smith is correct).  In particular, the Department of Justice went after, and got, FISA warrants bootstrapped on material which was created by the IC through their infiltration of the Trump campaign.  So far we've got at least Halper, Mifsud (probably the key, but still 'mysterious'), and likely Page, spying on, and even manipulating (to create #Russiagate), the Trump campaign.  There is no possible world in which this isn't a huge deal.  If Roger Stone pulled anything close to this on the Clinton campaign, he'd be in jail (one of the striking things about the Trump campaign is, despite all the sleazy operators, they were still mostly 'babes in the woods' in the slimy world of Washington swamp politics).

"Gina Haspell: She’s Certainly Qualified for the Job" (Jacobs) (should be 'Haspel').  "Facile Haspel" (West).  Haspel is another part of The Clarification.  A lot of people in the CIA perceive themselves as just doing their job, protecting the country.  A lot apparently even think of themselves as liberals.  Now that the Chief Motherfucker in Charge literally has blood on her shirt, it is impossible to maintain the same delusions.

#Russiagategate

"Obama’s Legacy Has Already Been Destroyed" (Sullivan).  I'm not a big fan of Sullivan, but this is quite the spectacular column.

"Poisoned former Russian spy Sergei Skripal to be offered secret new life in America".  Not wise to go into WITSEC, as then they can disappear you for good and nobody would know.  It is funny that the article is written as if all the spectacular lies of the British government haven't been mocked to death.

A compendium of #Russiagategate articles assembled at Niqnaq:  "spies".  The Barry/IC infiltrators - and Misfud seems more important and suspicious than Halper (Halper's role may have been more directed at Page, with just one September encounter with George Papadopoulos) - nudged the Trump campaign into acting on the idea that the Russians may have had dirt on Killary, using the very weakest link, Papadopoulos.  Unfortunately for the conspirators, the Trump campaigners were too incompetent to take the hint with any kind of focused determination, and nothing other than the ridiculous Don, Jr. June 2016 meeting - the one where Don thought he was going to a meeting to get dirt, and the Russian thought it was a meeting to discuss Russian adoptions and the Magnitsky Act - came of it.

If it was left at that, this is nothing more than the usual campaign dirty tricks in the style of Roger Stone, and is probably not even illegal.   The important criminality comes out of the fact that the American IC acted as if their trick worked, and based their whole ongoing anti-Trump operation on the untrue supposition that Trump had taken their bait, and was somehow colluding with the Russians.  It is worse than the usual entrapment, as the intent was to interfere with a Presidential election by Democrat partisans, with the power of the American IC and Barry's Administration, behind them (not forgetting that Power and Rice and Brennan were involved in a frenzied and clearly illegal 'unmasking' operation of NSA snooping at the same time).  There is also the fact that a real attempt to suborn an American election did come from a foreign government, that being the government of Britain.  Also note that an "an Israeli embassy official" was a go-between in setting up the infamous drunken Downer-Papadopoulos meeting, which really served as the basis for the subsequent American IC operation.

"Democrats defend FBI following reports it spied on Trump's election campaign" (Gray).  The Democrats are arguing that revealing the identity of their moles would damage the 'War on Terror' and treasonously threaten the lives of brave IC operatives working undercover!  Now that the worm has tuned, and their operatives are threatened, isn't it time to let bygones be bygones, and put all this divisive nonsense behind us?:  ""It's Over" - Biggest 'Russiagate' Cheerleaders Start Covering Their Tracks" (Lazare).

"Review: Michael Hayden’s “The Assault on Intelligence: American National Security in an Age of Lies”" (Van Buren).  Hayden's one of this type of American official who actually seems like he should be in a straight jacket, but everybody acts as if nothing is wrong and this kind of insanity is normal.

"Facebook & Atlantic Council unite: Now social media giant serves NATO’s agenda" (MacDonald).  Things seem to be clarifying at scary rate when Facebook starts boasting of its connections to a NATO PR operation.  The Euro-trash are tied to the Empire directly though their obligations to NATO, which constrains their choices on Iran. "With Iran sanctions Trump made Europeans look like the fools they are" (Laughland):
"The angry statements by European leaders might lead one to think that we are on the cusp of a major reappraisal of trans-Atlantic relations. However, the reality is that the EU and its leaders have painted themselves into a corner from which it will be very difficult, perhaps impossible, to extricate themselves.

First, the links between the EU and the US are not only very long-standing, they are also set in stone. NATO and the EU are in reality Siamese twins, two bodies born at the same time which are joined at the hip. The first European community was created with overt and covert US support in 1950 in order to militarize Western Europe and to prepare it to fight a land war against the Soviet Union; NATO acquired its integrated command structure a few months later and its Supreme Commander is always an American.

Today the two organizations are legally inseparable because the consolidated Treaty on European Union, in the form adopted at Lisbon in 2009, states that EU foreign policy “shall respect” the obligations of NATO member states and that it shall “be compatible” with NATO policy. In other words, the constitutional charter of the EU subordinates it to NATO, which the USA dominates legally and structurally. In such circumstances, European states can only liberate themselves from US hegemony, as Donald Tusk said they should, by leaving the EU.  It is obvious that they are not prepared to do that."
 We're living in a NATOcracy.

"Why Germans Are Getting Fed Up with America" (Bershidsky) (my emphasis in red):
"Now, another incomprehensible economic spectacle is unfolding parallel to Trump’s pressure on European steel and aluminum exporters. National Security Adviser John Bolton is threatening sanctions against European companies for dealing with Iran — and, at the same time, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is promising U.S. investment in North Korea if it denuclearizes. Wasn’t that what the Iran deal was about?

“So, American firms will soon be able to do business in North Korea, but not European ones in Iran,” commentator Mark Schieritz wrote on Twitter. Schieritz published a column in Zeit Online arguing that the U.S. was no longer a partner but a rival for Europe. He argued that time had come for Europe to confront the U.S. and respond to its “blackmail” in a tit-for-tat format — something the more sober Spiegel editorial didn’t advocate."
"Lauder refutes statement on OSF move attributed to him".  Lauder protests he didn't defend Soros.

"Eurovision: A False-flag Operation or Something More?"  Eurovision songs are so consistently horrible that it is impossible to prove a conspiracy in even the most bizarre choice, but this particular one, given its timing, is extremely suspicious.

Tell me another one, Schlomo

"The US political police and the 2016 elections" (Martin).  The investigations keep bumping up against wrongdoing, just not the wrongdoing they are supposed to find.  "Trump Tower transcripts show how one reckless meeting led to probe" (Turley):
"Many of the media continue to refuse to acknowledge the fact that both campaigns were actively seeking dirt on the other side, including information from Russian intelligence figures. While the Clinton campaign long denied the connection to the Steele dossier, including in meetings with investigators, Clinton and her top campaign officials belatedly admitted to funding the dossier after media found evidence linking it to Clinton’s top lawyer. It was buried as a campaign expenditure to a law firm. Clinton aides now express disbelief that anyone would question such “opposition research” on Trump, even from Russian sources."
"WSJ Asks "Was Trump's Campaign 'Set Up'?"" (Durden).  Comey and the FBI started the ball rolling by telling Barry's White House that they had concerns about Manafort and Page, then Killary picked up Jeb!'s dossier, feeding the British/Ukrainian intelligence fiction back to the American IC, who then started leaking it to the American (((media))).  It is quite a sordid story, and Trump is entirely the victim.  It remains to be seen if there were active steps, by the Barry/Killary conspirators and their IC, to trick Trump, though his less intelligent operatives/hangers-on, into trouble.

"The Philip Cross Affair" (Murray).  Looks to me like one of these hasbara farms, paid armies of computer jockeys spreading a certain kind of PR (Murray, to his great credit, 'names the Jew'; and note the connection of 'Philip Cross' to neo-con Murdoch writer/lackey Oliver Kamm).  This kind of systematic distortion is, of course, completely uninteresting to the (((media))) or Wales, but 'Russian bots' spending $100,000 looking for clicks on hot-button topics is the worst thing imaginable, a threat to democracy itself.

"Facebook partners with Atlantic Council to improve election security" (Breland).  This sounds like a joke, but is just shamelessness.

Shadow banning isn't new:  "Twitter Is Going To Limit The Visibility Of Tweets From People Behaving Badly" (Kantrowitz)

"Syria Notes - 18 May 2018" (Lang).  Assad is the latest pilgrim to Moscow, and at least pretends to be happy.  The de-terrorization of Syria continues, slowly and systematically, with Turkey still the wild card.

The Democrat/Settler Party:  "Deafening Democratic Silence on Gaza Is Because They Own It Too" (Dixon).

"Corbyn Backs Hard Brexit" (Smith).  Corbyn may very well be the perfect politician.

"13 Inconvenient Truths About What Has Been Happening in Gaza" (Rosenberg).  Tell me another one, Schlomo.  The official anti-settler but lite-Zionist line amongst the 'left' is now that this kind of thing wouldn't be happening if Israel improved prison conditions for the Gazans.

"US Scrapped B-52 Military Drill With South Korea After Kim Jong Un Complained".  It was the South Koreans who scrapped it, but Trump did the right thing, and implicitly censored Bolton, by going along.  That Nobel peace Prize is still in play!

"Orban: Hungary ‘insulted’ by Lauder’s comments".  I think it odd that Lauder went out of his way to Judaize the desorosization.

"‘Extraordinary’ homicide cases push Toronto police budget into deficit".  The walking cliché of the gay serial killer, the Armenian terrorist van of peace, and the OJ-style enterprise of finding out who really killed Honey - it's all costing a fortune, with a lot of money wasted as wokenness is not permitted.

The latest familial DNA, using a DNA database, arrest:  "Arrest made in 30-year cold case of murdered B.C. couple" and "Washington police announce arrest in 1987 murder of Victoria couple":
"Talbott was identified after a company called Parabon Nanolabs was hired to assist investigators using new DNA technology.

Genetic genealogist CeCe Moore used a public databank to upload the suspect’s DNA and build a family tree from those with partial matches back to Talbott’s great-grandparents.

She then started building the tree forward until “two of the closest matches’ trees converged. They intersected into a marriage, and from that marriage there was only one son.”

“That led us to really only one person who could carry this mix of DNA,” said Moore, who offered her condolences to the families."
There's an active program of investigation using Parabon NanoLabs and GEDmatch: "DNA Data From 100 Crime Scenes Has Been Uploaded To A Genealogy Website — Just Like The Golden State Killer".  Note the idea of giving reward money to those who submit DNA which leads to a match.

The violence did it

"Canadian doctor: Israeli soldiers shot me in both legs as I was treating injured protesters in Gaza" (Loubani).  There is an obvious break within the Khazars, even up to ordering one of their more pitiful shabbos goyim to mutter some platitudes, albeit much less tepid, and more pointed, than I would have expected (he managed not to call it a 'clash', use the passive voice - you know 'Palestinians were mysteriously struck by bullets', though apparently the cause of the problem is the 'violence' - mention Hamas, or say it was 'complicated', but he failed to mention the obvious perpetrator):  "Canada’s Trudeau calls for inquiry into Israeli Killings in Gaza" and "'Appalled' Trudeau calls for inquiry after Canadian doctor wounded in Gaza ".  The Bronfman money that pulls all of Justin's strings is embarrassed by the fact Israel is run by the guys who swing live chickens above their heads.

"Palestine: “In half of the injured we received… the bone has literally been turned into dust.”".  One of the slimy tricks of these vile people is to blame the problem on untrained young soldiers making split-second bad decisions, but the choice of ammunition comes from the top.

The Land Day Massacres have been very clarifying, as not all the powerful Khazars have a problem with settler-run Israel:  "Exclusive: The Complete Moral Collapse of Labour Friends of Israel" (Wight).

"Supporters desert Labour Friends of Israel" (Winstanley).  The price in shekels of buying these people has just gone up.

Trash, there is simply no other word for them:  "Perverse lobby parties after Gaza massacre " (Cronin).

An old guy named Stefan Halper is in the conversation as the IC mole within the Trump camp.  He's got all the hinky connections, but I find it odd he hasn't already been revealed if he is indeed the guy.

"The Shocking Truth About Russia’s Troll Campaign" (Marcetic).

"Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung fuels the campaign against Julian Assange" (Schwarz).  A big part of The Clarification is stressors that force the worst to come up out of the weeds/swamp and publicly pick sides.

"The New York Times can’t even report on the Eurovision Song Contest without resorting to Israeli propaganda" (Rothchild).  The usual from the Jew York Times (or is it the Ew! York Times, still promoting the most famous typical Khazar proclivites), but don't you find it strikingly odd that this particular selection was made in this era of increasing Khazar skepticism, in a 'contest' with a history of fraud?

"Syria - Inconsistent, Incomplete And Implausible - The OPCW Report On Saraqib Is Another Disgrace" (Moon).  I guess we shouldn't be surprised that all the 'objective' investigators chosen by the Empire are frauds.

"Sergei Skripal discharged from hospital after being poisoned by ‘deadly’ agent".

"Trump the Schlump: Iran Nuclear Deal Is Bad; North Korean Nuclear Deal Is Good" (Madsen):
"Trump’s turning back the clock on Western relations with Iran plays directly into the hands of the Israelis. While Israel’s agents-of-influence in the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) drew up primary and secondary sanctions lists against Iran, in violation of the JCPOA and, in the case of Iran’s other trading partners, the World Trade Organization, Israel continues to secretly import Iranian oil via Turkey and the Netherlands. These covert transactions are handled by the Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline Co (EAPC) and Trans-Asiatic Oil, Ltd., which have been buying oil from Iran since the days of the Shah. Iranian oil, refined at Israeli facilities in Haifa and Ashdod, makes its way into the vehicles driven by everyday Israelis. The Israelis hide their transactions with the state-owned National Iranian Oil Company via a series of shell corporations, including Eilat Corporation, based in Panama; a holding company called APC Holdings, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Fimarco Anstal, an Iranian front company based in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. In a rather typical case of “do as we say and not as we do,” the Israeli government wants sanctions on Iran to apply to every country but Israel."
and:
"Israel’s clandestine links with North Korea date back to the operations of the Israel Corporation, which controlled Israel Aircraft Industries and Zim Israel Navigation Shipping Company. Eisenberg was the first Israeli to establish trading links with the People’s Republic of China, which eventually extended to North Korea and Khmer Rouge-controlled Cambodia. Eisenberg’s chief exports to China and North Korea were weapons. In the latter part of his life, Eisenberg was found more often in Beijing, where he died in 1997, than in Tel Aviv. As with Israel’s covert oil business with Iran, Eisenberg’s weapons sales to China and North Korea were handled by a shell corporation in Panama called United Development, Inc.

On December 5, 2007, the Japanese paper “Yomiuri Shimbun” reported that Israel was conducting secret operations with North Korea in the early 1990s that involved proposed Israeli investments in a North Korean gold mine. The paper also reported, "a senior official of the Israeli Foreign Ministry received a phone call at home from a senior North Korean official, and was asked, 'Would you like to hold talks with the husband of Kim Il-sung's daughter, Kim Kyong-hui, as he is in charge of missile development?’" The son-in-law of North Korean founding father Kim Il-sung was Chang Song-taek, the first vice director of the Organization and Guidance Department of the governing Korean Worker's Party.

It was reported in 2004 by the New Zealand media that Mossad agent Zev William Barkan, alias Lev Bruckenstein, wanted by New Zealand for illegally attempting to obtain New Zealand passports, turned up in Pyongyang as a security adviser for the North Korean government. Barkan and other Mossad agents were in Pyongyang to negotiate a deal to build a West Bank-style security wall along the border with China, which was to be outfitted with Israeli-manufactured motion detectors and night vision equipment. The North Korean people, isolated for so long from other nations, are naturally suspicious of foreigners. For that reason, Mossad chose to rely on South Korean evangelical Christian agents working in the North, individuals who were better able to blend into North Korean society.

Several Israeli interlocutors in Pyongyang reportedly managed to convince Kim Jong-un’s government that Koreans, as a “Turkic people,” are one of the lost tribes of Israel."

Exterminate the brutes!

"The Russian-Israeli-Iranian conundrum in Syria" (Bhadrakumar).  Putin's diplomatic juggling, clever enough so he remains pals with everybody - you don't get the Putin you want, just the Putin you need.

Tweet (Adam H. Johnson):
"amazing how the David Frum and Anne Applebaum and Evan McMullins of the world have a definition of "authoritarianism" that excludes every non-Trump specific transgression the US does, ignores Israel, exempts wars of aggression, overlooks CIA/FBI and only applies to enemy states."
We're in the tail end of the era where the US could use terms from human rights and political and democratic morality to describe itself and its enemies, without everybody laughing.

"Iran Deal Abandoned, INF Next. US Steadily Dismantling Arms Control" (Gorka).  With demonstrated massive superiority of the Russians in new weaponry, it is a particularly stupid time for the Americans to be picking an arm's race, so of course they are, in line with all other recent imperial decisions to do the stupidest thing.

"Inside Ecuador's Multi-Million Dollar Operation To Spy On Julian Assange" (Durden).  Most of this is from the previous regime, which was actually trying to be helpful.  There is a current high need for whistleblowers with very embarrassing information from within the government of Ecuador.

"Ecuador’s Ex-President Rafael Correa Denounces Treatment of Julian Assange as “Torture”" (Greenwald).  "The Guardian Rejoices in the Silencing of Assange" (Murray). "WikiLeaks and whistleblowers condemn new allegations against Julian Assange" (Cogan). Probably would have been wise for the Guardian to tamp down the gloating.  I assume there was some big conspiracy behind the instant 180 degree shift between the Guardian being on Assange's side, and a 'partner' in disseminating information (you know, like journalists are supposed to do), and turning into raving anti-Assange fanatics.  Of course, as important as Assange is personally in allowing us to know things we need to know, this is more important than Assange, as the Powers-That-Be and their 'journalist' allies want to establish the principle that dissent will not be tolerated, with consequent punishment so horrible that nobody will dare try it.

""Operation Crossfire Hurricane": FBI Sent Strzok On Secret Mission To London Before Election" (Durden).  Russiagate has still led to nothing incriminating against Trump - though that group with Trump/Putin Derangement Syndrome whisper, with increasing desperation, that it is still early days, with the real dirt yet to come out - but (perhaps ironic) ugly evidence of abuse of power by the IC and Obama-Clinton partisans in their anti-Trump machinations.  If Mueller were an honest man - and there is not a shred of evidence during his entire career to suggest that he is -  he'd come out with a bunch of indictments against the Never-Trumpers, the real criminals here.  Of course, one thing he is proving is that everybody in Washington is on the grift, and it is not pretty.

"Missing Files Motivated the Leak of Michael Cohen’s Financial Records" (Farrow).  I have to say this is one of the least plausible whistleblower motivations I have ever heard.  The most interesting thing about Cohen is that Washington is so corrupt that big corporations would pay him - a guy expressly excluded from any position in the Administration, no doubt because he was perceived as a sleazebag - hundreds of thousands of dollars just on the hope that his iffy proximity to the Administration might bring some benefits.

"Initial Coin Scams" (Roubini).  It is rare to see scams on such a massive scale which are less plausible than, but essentially similar to, email offers from Nigerian princes. Who falls for this crap?

The huge advantage of the Khazars, and the cause of their imminent downfall, is that they are supremacists who don't realize that they are supremacists, or what supremacism sounds like to non-psychopaths:  tweet (Anderson Cooper 360°):
"Hamas is responsible for “human sacrifice” in Gaza, says @TomFriedman. “I am sorry, when you throw thousands… of the flower of your youth against an Israeli fence … it was inevitable that a lot of people were going to get killed … and Hamas knew that” https://cnn.it/2rJgZev"
It is particularly striking to hear a Khazar complain about 'human sacrifice' when it is apparent that part of the Khazar motivation for the massacres is shedding blood of the goyim to sanctify the new embassy and the Khazar land theft project (the blood 'libel').  Note the obvious, and consistent, hasbara talking point that this whole series of massacres is on Hamas, as if they had the power to force such huge crowds to throw themselves into Israeli bullets (and as if the poor Israelis had no choice but to shoot in the face of such tempting provocation from the PR masterminds at Hamas).  See also:  "GAG: NYT Publishes Major Human Interest Piece Saying Israelis Feel Bad About Opening Fire on Protesters" (Anglin).  You could write these articles before the atrocity, as the (((media))) will always do everything it can to protect its supremacists: "Passive media whitewash Israel’s massacre in Gaza" (Abunimah).

"Israel, Like the Nazis, Values "Postenpflicht" by Publius Tacitus".  I will always believe that Israel is the current vessel for the spirit of National Socialism, as if it flew out of the corpse of Germany in the mid-40s, and landed in the Middle East. People would say this is ironic, but it is not if you consider the crucial role in National Socialism in creating the 'refugee crisis' that stoked the stolen land with Khazars.  Every Israeli city and town should have a venerated statue of Adolf Hitler.

"Kill and Kill and Kill" (Makdisi):
"The Palestinians targeted and executed one-by-one by Israeli snipers had gathered to demand their right of return to their lands and homes inside the rest of Palestine, from the coastal plain up to and including Jerusalem.  They or their parents or grandparents were driven from their homes during the Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 for the simple reason that they are not Jewish: too many non-Jews in the putative Jewish state would not make for much of a Jewish state after all.  (“There could be no Jewish state with a large and hostile Arab minority in its midst.  There would be no such state.  It would not be able to exist,” the Israeli historian Benny Morris bluntly pointed out in an interview justifying ethnic cleansing with the newspaper Ha’aretz in 2004; “a Jewish state would not have come into being without the uprooting of 700,000 Palestinians . . . [therefore] it was necessary to uproot them”).  They have been denied the right to return to their homes ever since for the same reason: they are not Jewish, and their presence would upset the carefully-engineered demographic tables maintained by the state to preserve its tenuous claim to an exclusively Jewish identity.  The maintenance of that demographic balance and the suspension of their political and human rights are inseparable from one another: the one enables, produces and requires the other.

The demographer Arnon Sofer of Haifa University is the architect of the current isolation of Gaza.  In 2004, he advised the government of Ariel Sharon to withdraw Israeli forces from within Gaza, seal the territory off from the outside world, and simply shoot anyone who tries to break out.  “When 2.5 million people live in a closed-off Gaza, it’s going to be a human catastrophe,” Sofer told an interviewer in the Jerusalem Post (11 November 2004); “Those people will become even bigger animals than they are today, with the aid of an insane fundamentalist Islam.  The pressure at the border will be awful.  It’s going to be a terrible war.  So, if we want to remain alive, we will have to kill and kill and kill.  All day, every day.”  He added that “the only thing that concerns me is how to ensure that the boys and men who are going to have to do the killing will be able to return home to their families and be normal human beings.”

This imperative to kill and kill and kill human “animals” explains the violence taking place at the gates of Gaza—which has been sealed off precisely according to Sofer’s prescription—for the past several weeks, most calamitously this Monday.  The killing now taking place is, in other words, exactly, to the letter, the “killing and killing and killing” he called for fourteen years ago.  Calmly premeditated and intentionally designed by its architect, it is equally calmly and intentionally being carried out by Israeli soldiers (about whose psychological traumas I, unlike Sofer, am not even remotely interested).  In response to the current killing and shooting, a senior member of the Israeli parliament, Avi Dichter, reassured his audience on live television on Monday that they need not be unduly concerned.  Their army, he told them, “has enough bullets for everyone.”  If every man, woman and child in Gaza gathers at the gate, in other words, there is a bullet for every one of them. They can all be killed, no problem.

Remember Kurtz in Heart of Darkness? “Exterminate the brutes!”  The genocidal intent expressed by the likes of Sofer and Dichter—mainstream and senior figures in Israeli politics—is so obvious as to make assiduous interpretation of their words unnecessary.  The people of Gaza are exterminable because they are not Jewish: that is what the situation amounts to, not according to critics of the siege of Gaza, but according to its architects, planners, enablers and supporters.  For that exterminability, and the ability to calmly and methodically transact it (“kill and kill and kill”) guarantees one thing, according to Sofer (in that same interview): “it guarantees a Zionist-Jewish state with an overwhelming majority of Jews.”  To be clear then: according to its own planners and architects—these are their words, not mine—the maintenance of a “Zionist-Jewish” state fundamentally requires the Israeli army to prepare itself with a bullet for every man, woman and child in Gaza, and to shoot them one by one if they approach the gates penning them in.  And if none of them are left after the smoke clears, well, so much the better; Israeli “boys and men” will return to their families and sleep better at night for not having to kill them any longer."
