Conundrum

Tweet (Maya Gebeily):

Mysterious financial entanglement

"Billionaire businessman Leslie Wexner refuses to reveal full scope of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged multimillion-dollar theft" (Remillard):
"But perhaps the most mysterious financial entanglement between Wexner and Epstein is scattered across thousands of pages of S.E.C. filings and other records identified by criminologist and ABC News contributor Tom Volscho and reviewed by financial investigative journalist and ABC News contributor Boyd.

Volscho and Boyd found nearly a dozen trusts -- with names like Health and Science Interests, Arts Interests and Community Interests -- connected to Wexner that listed Epstein as trustee and received large gifts of stock in Wexner’s company, The Limited. These trusts may help explain how Epstein’s wealth grew so quickly.

Records show that between 1991 and 2006, Epstein oversaw the sale, mostly through the New York Stock Exchange, of more than $1.3 billion of company stock held by these trusts, representing a vast pool of cash largely controlled by Epstein.

Much of the money was certainly used for charitable purposes, but according to Volscho and Boyd, a potential pattern appears to emerge, one in which Epstein liquidates large amount of stock on behalf of these trusts and then, shortly after, makes large purchases for himself, including homes, planes, even a private island."
Yep, that's how it's done. Wexner will be the beneficiary of these trusts, and will hoover up all the assets, leaving an empty shell for the victims to sue. Sorry, goyim!  Had Wexner given the money to Epstein, he would have no claim, and if he had loaned it, he would have to stand in line with other unsecured claimants, including the victims.

But (my emphasis in red):
"A pair of aspiring models have both publicly described disturbing encounters with Epstein, having being lured into a private meeting with him after he portrayed himself as a talent scout for Wexner’s flagship brand, Victoria’s Secret.

In an interview with ABC News, Alicia Arden said she met Epstein at a hotel in Santa Monica, California, in 1997, believing that Epstein could help get her photo in the Victoria’s Secret catalog. When she arrived at his hotel room, Arden said, Epstein groped her.

“He was putting his hands on my hips and my buttocks and saying, ‘Let me manhandle you,” Arden told ABC News. “So I got extremely terrified of that.”

Arden left the hotel room and later filed a report of sexual battery with the Santa Monica Police Department, one of the earliest known reports against Epstein for abusive behavior. The police, however, do not appear to have pursued the matter.

ABC News reached out to the Santa Monica Police Department about Arden’s case, but did not receive a response.

Elisabetta Tai told a similar story to New York Post last year. In 2004, she said, her booking agent set up a meeting with Epstein at his Upper East Side mansion, and she visited Epstein’s home under the impression that he was in “charge of Victoria’s Secret” and could get her into the company’s catalog.

While at Epstein’s home, Tai told the Post, Epstein stripped naked and handed her a vibrator. She threw it at his head, she said, and then left.

L Brands has since told Business Insider that it hired an outside law firm to review Epstein’s relationship with the company, but they do not believe he was ever an employee or authorized representative of the company.

But when ABC News reached out to L Brands, asking whether Epstein ever served as talent scout for Victoria’s Secret, the company did not respond to a request for comment."
I can see a good claim against Santa Monica - had the police not been bribed to fail to do their jobs, a lot of the attacks might have been averted - and a claim against Victoria’s Secret if they can show Epstein was its agent (which they probably can).  At the vary least, there was a sloppiness in allowing Wexner's interests to be mixed up with Epstein's.

"Who, exactly? Cindy McCain says ‘WE’ all knew about Epstein’s sex crimes":
"“Epstein was hiding in plain sight,” said Cindy McCain. “We all knew about him. We all knew what he was doing, but we had no one that was – no legal aspect that would go after him. They were afraid of him. For whatever reason, they were afraid of him.”"

Cropped out

Pompeo is furious at the journalist he yelled and swore at.  There appears to be a tiny understanding at the base of his lizard brain that what he is doing is Pure Evil, and his outbursts are the evidence for it.

Obviously the Khazars are by far the biggest culprits in turning the United States into a shithole, but satanists like Pompeo and Pence also have a huge role:  "The Evangelicals Who Pray for War With Iran" (Posner).

Tweet (Art Nouveau w/ Brutalist Characteristics):

"Whenever Laurence Tribe pretends to be a good guy we should all collectively remember that he made his money helping coal companies commit EPA violations. He's a climate villain. To say nothing of blowing the Florida recount for Gore in 2000."

When pigs fly

"Goldman to Refuse IPOs If All Directors Are White, Straight Men" (Green).  They're going to need to put in a big order for fruit machines (speaking of which, one of the weirdest monuments in the world).  I can just see the bros choosing straws to see which one gets to sashay around.  What if the entire board is transgender whites (female to male), who identify as straight?  Asia is exempt (but Asians aren't white, so I'm confused).  I don't think they've thought through the trouble they are making for themselves.

Greenwald tweets on pigs, and I look up in the sky only to see pigs flying past:  "Washington should stand up for US journalist Glenn Greenwald" (Rupert!).

Tweet (Saagar Enjeti):
"The Joe Rogan freakout is about power. He has a bigger more engaged platform than most of the people on MSM combined. The internet has shifted the power dynamics and he is now more kingmaker than they ever were"

Electoral poison

"Pompeo Won't Say Whether He Owes Yovanovitch An Apology. 'I've Done What's Right'" (Breslow):
"Immediately after the questions on Ukraine, the interview concluded. Pompeo stood, leaned in and silently glared at Kelly for several seconds before leaving the room.

A few moments later, an aide asked Kelly to follow her into Pompeo's private living room at the State Department without a recorder. The aide did not say the ensuing exchange would be off the record.

Inside the room, Pompeo shouted his displeasure at being questioned about Ukraine. He used repeated expletives, according to Kelly, and asked, "Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?" He then said, "People will hear about this."

The State Department did not immediately respond on the record to NPR's request for comment."
See also "Lunatic: Pompeo threatens Putin with Drone Assassination".

"‘Targeted and governmental terrorism’: Iran slams US for threat against Soleimani successor".

That protest in Iraq might have been one of the largest demonstrations in world history, completely anti-Assholian, and disturbing to Assholes, even amongst those few who don't habitually lie:  "Harper: A Tale of Two Protests in Baghdad".  Note the need to compare the tiny inconsequential anti-government protest, and the m-a-s-s-i-v-e under counting - also, of course, throughout the entire lying (((media))) - perhaps by as much as ten or more times, of the number of protesters.  It was a thorough and complete repudiation of Assholia.

This is a key point in understanding how sick in the head the warmongering Democrats really are:  "Adam Schiff’s Very Scary Warmongering Speech" (Lazare).  If you'd told me five years ago that things were quite this bad with the Democrats and their supporters, including liberals who seem quite reasonable on the surface (who are saluting Shiffty as the oratorical reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln), I would not have believed you.  The apotheosis of The Clarification.

The quintessential, and bafflingly out of touch, Assholaian self-regard!: tweet (Alexey Kovalyov):
"No we don’t, you’re pretty screwed yourself guys, don’t drag us into your mess"
Tweet (Michael Tracey):
"One more thing on Joe Rogan. Upsetting the professional "progressive activist" class is probably the best thing Bernie could do because those people are electoral poison"
Trump stumping on Biden's criminality would be something to see!  "Joe Biden’s ‘conspiracy theory’ memo to U.S. media doesn’t match the facts" (Solomon). "NYTimes Quashed Story About 2016 WH Meeting With 'Whistleblower' & Ukrainians On Burisma: Report" (Heine).  "Law School Memes for Edgy T14s Endorses Joseph “Sloppy Joe” Biden" (LSMFET14)!

"While Trump cuts food stamps, USAID bankrolls Venezuela regime change with half a billion in tax dollars" (Norton).  A lot of money going personally to Guido and his pals.

I can remember when you were called a 'Nazi Jew-hater' for even suggesting that the Khazars might be so utterly evil to do what they are openly doing and planning today:  "No opposition from the international community as Israel alters the two-state paradigm" (Wadi).  There is no opposition because of bribes and blackmail.  Again, like the persistence of the US National-Security State, I see no way out of this other than revolution.  Politicians simply can't let those videos get out.

If you want a short guide to distinguishing American politicians from the Euro-trash, the Americans go for young teenagers, while the more sophisticated Euro-trash likes babies and very young children.  And thus was Greater Israel created, goyim!  Appropriately - very, very appropriately - it will be the first modern state whose foundational documents are under-aged pornos.

Yikes, were you woke you might notice a pattern!: "Oligarch Overload".  It's based on a famous Assholian court case called, I think, Khazars United.

Higgins doesn't react well to being caught red-handed, perhaps concerned his paymasters might notice the incompetence:  tweet (Piers Robinson):
"What does this tweet tell us about Higgins? And would you like to address this evidence that he knew a crime scene had been manipulated but helped disguise that fact?"

Fetishizing consistency

Tweet (Patrick Henningsen) (more examples in the replies, including Bloomberg claiming it was an anti-government demonstration!):

"Immediate US Withdrawal Due to Its Violation of the Agreement and Iraq Sovereignty" (Magnier)

Tweet (Stephen Wertheim):
"“The Pentagon has increased its overall Middle East footprint by more than 20,000 troops since last spring.”"
This is the best! - consistency in being for the people all the time for decades is a troubling attribute as only straight white males have the 'privilege' to be able to be consistent:  tweet (Anne Helen Petersen):
"This is not for or against Bernie, but there is a certain kind of man who fetishizes consistency in this way. I don't know if consistency is something that's always available to people who aren't straight white men."

'Hundreds', dozens even

Tweet (NPR Politics - 2008):
"Clinton Adviser Says Obama Not Electable: Yesterday during a conference call with reporters, Sen. Hil.. http://tinyurl.com/2zsryb"
Some Colonel Cassad from Niqnaq: "iraq demos, mind-blowing photos". Tweet (Louis Allday):

The Irony of the Year Award is already won: "Australia’s Largest Mining Company is Worried Bushfires are Affecting Coal Production" (Butler).

Gut-wrenching

"Capitalism and the Gut-Wrenching Hijack of India" (Todhunter) (if you read on you'll see he means 'gut-wrenching' literally):
"In India, the ‘development’ paradigm is premised on moving farmers out of agriculture and into the cities to work in construction, manufacturing or the service sector, despite these sectors not creating anything like the number of jobs required. The aim is to displace the existing labour-intensive system of food and agriculture with one dominated by a few transnational corporate agri-food giants which will then control the sector. Agriculture is to be wholly commercialised with large-scale, mechanised (monocrop) enterprises replacing family-run farms that help sustain hundreds of millions of rural livelihoods while feeding the urban masses.

Renowned journalist P Sainath encapsulates what is taking place when he says that the agrarian crisis can be explained in just five words: hijack of agriculture by corporations. He notes the process by which it is being done in five words too: predatory commercialisation of the countryside. And he takes five works to describe the outcome: biggest displacement in our history.

Why would anyone sanction this and set out to run down what is effectively a productive system of agriculture that feeds people, sustains livelihoods and produces sufficient buffer stocks?

Part of the answer comes down to India being the largest recipient of World Bank loans in the history of that institution and acting on its directives. Part of it results from the corporate-driven US-Indo Knowledge Agreement on Agriculture. On both counts, it means India’s rulers are facilitating the needs of Western capital and all it entails: an inherently predatory economic model based on endless profit growth, crises of overproduction and overaccumulation and market saturation and a need to constantly seek out, create and expand into new, untapped (foreign) markets to maintain profitability."

"How The Military-Industrial Complex Gets Away With Murder In Contract After Contract" (Smithberger). The most curious thing is that this is not a political issue.  Years of total corruption has resulted in the US in a disadvantaged position against its rivals in the overall state of military technology, despite the fact that the Americans have essentially unlimited procurement budgets.

"An Army for Hire: Trump Wants to Make Money by Renting Out American Soldiers" (Giraldi).  The corruption is now so extreme that the Assholes now need other countries to help pay for it.  You have to love the renting of American soldiers to the Saudis for the purpose of serving as human shields.

Just a good short summary:  "The FBI Scandal" (Lake).

 Tweets by Ben Norton on the hilarious, not to mention Khazar, history of the 'human rights' grifters Amnesty International!

That crippling ((('donor'))) problem keeps cropping up at Jacobin, but I guess we should not be surprised that one of the few voices from the 'left' is phony:  tweet (Joe Catron):
"Jacobin was literally publishing propaganda against Soleimani less than two weeks ago, but okay."
"Theatrics aside, Macron supports Israeli apartheid" (Abunimah).  There is tension between Globo-Homo-Rothschild-o, Macron's owners, and the Sheldon billionaires who own Trump, particularly over whether WWIII would be a good for the Jews or not, but they all agree, as do all Khazars, that killing people and stealing their land is simply wonderful.

Bibi took the occasion of Jewapalooza to advocate for WWIII, completely fitting:  "World leaders gather in Jerusalem for Holocaust memorial, but Poland absent after diplomatic spat" (Trew).  Whatever official reason they might give, the Poles weren't there in protest of the Khazars claiming all their stuff, and as we know, once the kleptos decide they want your stuff, there is really nothing to do but give it to them.

Shocking development in the wonderful world of shekels!:  "ICC judges dash hopes for swift probe of Israeli war crimes" (Murphy).

Ol' Kil looks like she just put out a hit. To be fair, she always looks like she just put out a hit. To be fairest, she always has just put out a hit.

I know she had to put damper on Bernie's momentum, but did she have to show so much nastiness? "Hillary Clinton on Bernie Sanders: "Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him"" (Ayesh).  Tweet (Biden's Hairy Leg):

Saudis are the worst

Tweet (Shashank Joshi):
"As with Khashoggi, the first Saudi response is: 'nonsense, that's untrue', and the second, shortly afterward, is 'maybe it's true, but it's not as bad as it looks'. In a day, you can expect 'it's true, it's bad, but it wasn't the crown prince's doing'."
Note that the attack on Bezos - which ended up costing him $38 billion! - is part of a pattern that has been going on for a while:  "Government agents likely affiliated with Saudi Arabia spying on dissident in Canada, Citizen Lab alleges" (Freeze).

"Saudi critics should revisit Sue Myrick's 'Wake Up America Agenda'" (Caschetta).  The consistent Saudi trick of using its diplomats to sneak out privileged and feckless Saudis who have committed a crime is starting to grate (see the Canadian case from a year ago).

All the stories on this incident are hilariously slanted to the Saudi perspective, but essentially the Houthis managed to take out another large group of Saudi-hired mercenaries:  "Iranian-backed Houthi rebels slaughter 116 Yemeni troops in weekend missile strike on barracks mosque before Saudi Arabia blows a rocket out of the sky over its airspace" (Ibbetson).  Just look at all the tendentious words in the headline!

The UN tried to pin the Houthi attack on Saudi oil installations on Iran, with strangely little spin from the neocons, presumably as the standing order is to downplay the vulnerabilities of all oil installations in the Gulf area, as such thoughts are not 'good for the Jews':  "UN monitors say Houthis not behind Saudi Aramco attacks: Report".

For a guy who is supposed to be stopping a war, he still manages to kill a lot of civilians:  "Saudi-led coalition resumes airstrikes near Yemeni capital" (al-Haj).

Added: "The Saudi Connection: Inside the 9/11 Case That Divided the F.B.I." (Golden/Rotella) (this kind of warning pops up whenever the American government is angry with the Saudis, and the real problem, prompting JYT involvement, is whenever the Saudis sanely contemplate better relations with Iran):
"What little they knew about life in the West came mostly from a crash course in Pakistan, in which Mohammed tried to teach them to read airline timetables and telephone books and showed old Hollywood movies with hijacking scenes."
Added:  "America Is Giving Saudi Arabia Cover for the Worst Human Rights Abuses in Decades, Watchdog Warns" (Brennan).  Again, bizarre sudden Assholian interest in 'human rights' is an indication that the Saudis are displeasing the Khazars.

Grim landscape

"Now Three Years into the Reign of Trump, What’s Left?" (Harris) (a disturbingly good point - Bernie prevents a real progressive alternative party, as he, an imported ringer for the left, keeps the Dems of the real left satisfied during nomination runs, up to the inevitable shivving by the Clintonistas, and he seems fine with it):
"Bernie Sanders had raised genuine issues regarding runaway income inequality and plutocratic politics. However, Sanders was suppressed by a hostile corporate press and an antagonistic Democratic Party establishment, which arguably preferred to risk a Republican victory in 2016 than support anyone who questioned neoliberal orthodoxy.

Sanders’ issues got asphyxiated in the juggernaut of Russiagate. His legacy – so far – has been to help contain a progressive insurgency within the Democratic Party, the perennial graveyard of social movements. Had Mr. Sanders not come along, the Democrats – now the full-throated party of neoliberal austerity at home and imperial war abroad – would have needed to invent a leftish Pied Piper to keep their base in the fold."

Schiffty

The CIA 'whistleblower':  "Whistleblower Was Overheard in '17 Discussing With Ally How to Remove Trump" (Sperry):
"The whistleblower’s candor is also being called into question.  It turns out that the CIA operative failed to report his contacts with Schiff’s office to the intelligence community’s inspector general who fielded his whistleblower complaint. He withheld the information both in interviews with the inspector general, Michael Atkinson, and in writing, according to impeachment committee investigators. The whistleblower form he filled out required him to disclose whether he had “contacted other entities” -- including “members of Congress.” But he left that section blank on the disclosure form he signed.
The investigators say that details about how the whistleblower consulted with Schiff’s staff and perhaps misled Atkinson about those interactions are contained in the transcript of a closed-door briefing Atkinson gave to the House Intelligence Committee last October. However, Schiff has sealed the transcript from public view. It is the only impeachment witness transcript out of 18 that he has not released.
Schiff has classified the document “Secret,” preventing Republicans who attended the Atkinson briefing from quoting from it. Even impeachment investigators cannot view it outside a highly secured room, known as a “SCIF," in the basement of the Capitol. Members must first get permission from Schiff, and they are forbidden from bringing phones into the SCIF or from taking notes from the document."
Trump caused a tsunami in Washington of people so upset at his stated policy positions that they were willing to subvert the entire democratic process in order to get him out, in any way possible.  This is even weirder as it becomes clear that Trump is no revolutionary, but just a standard Republican President.

Pegasus, etc

"Israeli Cyberattack Firm NSO May Have Helped Saudis Hack Jeff Bezos' Phone, UN Experts Say " (Rothschilds).  Tweets by Jacob Silverman (the actual blackmail threat).

"We can now apparently add that if NSO hadn’t sold Pegasus to the Saudis, Jeff Bezos would still be married to his first wife, MacKenzie." (Cole).

(((Somebody))) is getting ready to interfere in an election:  "Why a shadowy tech firm with ties to Israeli intelligence is running doomsday election simulations" (Webb).

No way out

"Secret Wars, Forgotten Betrayals, Global Tyranny. Who Is Really in Charge of the U.S. Military?" (Chung) (my emphasis in red)):
"One could speculate that the President was set up, with the official designation of the IRGC as “terrorist” occurring in April 2019 by the US State Department, a decision that was strongly supported by both Bolton and Pompeo, who were both members of the NSC at the time. This made it legal for a US military drone strike to occur against Soleimani under the 2001 AUMF, where the US military can attack any armed group deemed to be a terrorist threat. Both Bolton and Pompeo made no secret that they were overjoyed by Soleimani’s assassination and Bolton went so far as to tweet “Hope this is the first step to regime change in Tehran.” Bolton has also made it no secret that he is eager to testify against Trump in his possible impeachment trial.

Former CIA Director Mike Pompeo was recorded at an unknown conference recently, but judging from the gross laughter of the audience it consists of wannabe CIA agents, where he admits that though West Points’ cadet motto is “You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do.”, his training under the CIA was the very opposite, stating “I was the CIA Director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It was like we had entire training courses. (long pause) It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment.”

Thus, it should be no surprise to anyone in the world at this point in history, that the CIA holds no allegiance to any country. And it can be hardly expected that a President, who is actively under attack from all sides within his own country, is in a position to hold the CIA accountable for its past and future crimes."
Most of the article is on the immediate post-war creation of the National-Security State, and how the CIA's big fuck-up on the Bay of Pigs left it vulnerable to a JFK attack, thus leading inevitably to his assassination.

Without an actual revolution, it is difficult to see how to get out of this mess.  The National-Security State exists entirely for the benefit of itself, and increasing its power.  Complete surveillance and new technologies mean that the American IC has enormous blackmail material, and they are prepared to assassinate if blackmail doesn't work, thus making it impossible for politicians to put up any opposition.  The Khazars, with their total control of (((media))) and (((entertainment))), and their own blackmail and shekeling operations, have glommed on to the National-Security State for a mutually beneficial relationship, allowing a psycho like Wurmser to quietly hang around for years until the time is right to present another terrible idea, immediately taken up as it seems to help both the all-important settlers, and the self-aggrandizement of National-Security State operators.  Everything is set up in such a way that it can only get worse.

Parnas

"‘Once This Is Over, We’ll Be Kings’: How Lev Parnas Worked His Way Into Trump’s World" ('Hunter Wallace').  $50,000 to Trump and all his problems would be fixed!

Parnas is a Khazar, another Orthodox Jew of the cluster of them around Trump (ninety some percent of the characters involving Trump in #Russiagate are Ukrainian Khazar gangsters, who the Clintonistas/Never Trumpers choose to call 'Russians' - Marshall does this repeatedly - as it fits their ridiculous narrative), who was born in the Ukraine.  Although he has lived in the US since he was three, the Clintonistas and Never Trumpers fit him into #Russiagate, as he was born in Ukraine when Ukraine was part of the old Soviet Union, which is enough for them to see him as best buds with that rascal Putin!

Not to put too fine a point on it, but Parnas, like so many Khazars surrounding Trump, is a gangster, and is in heap big legal problems (although his current legal problems relate to #Russiagate-related election interference, allegedly on behalf of Russia).  For some reason, he decided that he could help himself by spilling his guts to the Clintonistas.  While the Clintonistas were thrilled to have more to throw at Trump, there is also a very strong feeling that this is some kind of trick (a Trojan Horse), and that Parnas is still working for Trump, perhaps hoping the Clintonistas/Jewish impeachers will rely on something he tells them which Trump can easily rebut.

"Lev Parnas Dishes on Kushner, Maduro, and Soros" (Swan):
"Parnas, Fruman, Giuliani, diGenova, and Toensing worked to push Ukrainian authorities to announce an investigation of a company linked to Vice President Joe Biden, and to oust U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. But that wasn’t all, according to Parnas. He said they also angled to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to force at least two people out of his own orbit: former journalist Serhiy Leshchenko and then-national security adviser Oleksandr Danylyuk. The reason? In Parnas’ words, they were “Soros people.”

George Soros, an American billionaire who has invested heavily in progressive political causes and philanthropies around the world, has long been a bête noire of conservatives and regularly vilified in Russian propaganda—the same kind that Trumpworld is accused of subscribing to in its Ukraine dealings. Giuliani, diGenova, and Toensing were particularly opposed to Soros’ work, Parnas said.

“Soros became Enemy Number One, and it was understood that Soros infiltrated the U.S. government and State Department over a certain period of time,” Parnas said.
“He employed different prosecutors in different states, different congressmen, and the biggest thing was they thought Victoria Nuland was his person in the State Department and then let him control Eastern Europe by naming ambassadors and stuff, and then opened up this anti-corruption-type of system to cover up, actually, his corruption. That’s what we were running with.
Parnas said he didn’t have any particular interest in Soros, but got pulled into the conservative lawyers’ allegations. Many of Trump’s thorniest problems, in their view, started with Soros. 
“The consensus was that the reason Trump had the Russiagate and everything that was happening was because Soros and the Democrats controlled certain U.S. embassies in Eastern Europe, particularly the Ukrainian one, and were able to help with the Manafort stuff and all other kinds of stuff that basically caused problems in the Trump World,” he said.

So the effort to influence Zelensky’s administration included machinations against Soros, he said—in particular, to push Zelensky to distance himself from people perceived to be close to billionaire. That push and the push for political favors for Trump were one and the same, he said. In retrospect, Parnas said, the Soros focus grew out of an atmosphere he described as cult-like. When asked if he believed his former allies’ claims about the billionaire, he said he got sucked in at the time.

“When you’ve got the president saying it, you’ve got his attorneys saying it, you’ve got all these congressmen saying it, you’ve got all these senators saying it—again, when I say Trumpworld, that small inner-whatever, everybody would talk about it: ‘This Soros guy.’ That’s why I look at it as a cult.”"
and (the failed attempt to buy off Maduro):
"The small group of Trump allies who worked on the Ukraine project also had visibility into other foreign policy efforts–namely, a push to moderate the Trump administration’s hawkish stance toward Venezuela. In April 2018, then-Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) traveled to Caracas and met with the embattled President Nicolás Maduro. Months later, in September, the congressman gathered with pals in a little-known VIP room at the Trump Hotel BLT Prime restaurant for a follow-up call. Parnas said he was there.

Giuliani and Sessions staffer Caroline Boothe were also present, Parnas said. (A spokesperson for Sessions declined to comment, a lawyer for Boothe did not respond to multiple requests for comment, and Maduro officials did not provide on-record comment). The call with Maduro came over Sessions’ cell phone, and the Congressman put him on speaker for the whole room to hear.

“Rudy didn’t want to be on the call because he felt that it might not be proper because he was the president’s attorney,” Parnas said.

Despite any misgivings, Giuliani was present when the call began. The group exchanged pleasantries, and several introductions were made, including with Giuliani. After a short time, Sessions took Maduro off speaker and chatted with him in the room as other attendees–including Parnas–listened in.

Parnas said he gleaned from their conversation that Maduro and Sessions had hashed out a tentative agreement to give him a way to step down from power. The plan would be for Maduro to announce free and fair elections, and then leave the country if he lost.

“I think the biggest part of the call was that Maduro was trying to be closer to the United States because he didn’t want to deal with Russia or China because he wanted to somehow move his family here,” Parnas said.

He noted that Maduro telegraphed interest in American sports, and there was some discussion of him potentially moving to Texas and watching the Dallas Cowboys.

A source with direct knowledge of the call confirmed several details of Parnas’ account to The Daily Beast, including that Sessions and Giuliani were in a restaurant, that Maduro was initially on speaker phone for a brief time, that Parnas was present, and that the topic of American professional sports came up.

The conversation, some of which the Washington Post has reported on, did not bear fruit. It came as then-National Security Adviser John Bolton worked to heighten the Trump administration’s bare-knuckled approach to the South American country. Instead of negotiating a soft exit for Maduro, the White House rolled out rounds of punishing sanctions and declared (along with other countries) that his presidency was illegitimate. Venezuela hawks in the administration had hoped Maduro would flee the country, but instead–with support from Russia and China–he has toughed out the United States’ pressure campaign. In the year since Washington recognized Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s interim head of state, Maduro has shored up his grip on power and drawn his country closer to Russia and China. "
and (OG Kush-ner):
"Parnas’ standing as a generous Trump ally also won him access to some memorable events. In October 2018, he attended a dinner in a private suite at Trump Hotel hosted by the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action. The dinner, with around a dozen people, connected Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump with leaders in the cannabis industry. Parnas said he was invited because he “was a Trump loyalist,” and because the super PAC’s Director of Development Joey Ahearn knew he was pro-cannabis.

The White House has claimed that a picture of Parnas with Kushner and Ivanka Trump was “taken at an event in a photo line.” Parnas, however, said it was taken at the intimate dinner with cannabis industry insiders. Two sources with knowledge of the dinner confirmed that it happened in October 2018 and that Parnas attended. The decor in the background of the picture–as Zack Everson, author of a newsletter on Trump properties noted–indicates the photo was taken in the pricey Trump Hotel suite where the dinner was hosted.

The cannabis entrepreneurs there hoped to shape the administration’s policy on pot, Parnas said.

“They wanted Jared to be more involved, maybe help push the agenda with the president because they felt that that was something he needed to be more lenient on,” Parnas said."

In the anteroom

Americans would be much more 'anti-Semitic' if they had any idea of how bad it really is:  "A New Definition of Warfare" (Giraldi) (my emphasis in red):
"After dealing with Iraq, the Trump Administration turned its guns on one of its oldest and closest allies. Great Britain, like most of the other European signatories to the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has been reluctant to withdraw from the agreement over concern that Iran will as a result decide to develop nuclear weapons. According to the Guardian, a United States representative from the National Security Council named Richard Goldberg, had visited London recently to make clear to the British government that if it does not follow the American lead and withdraw from the JCPOA and reapply sanctions it just might be difficult to work out a trade agreement with Washington post-Brexit. It is a significant threat as part of the pro-Brexit vote clearly was derived from a Trump pledge to make up for some of the anticipated decline in European trade by increasing U.K. access to the U.S. market. Now the quid pro quo is clear: Britain, which normally does in fact follow the Washington lead in foreign policy, will now be expected to be completely on board all of the time and everywhere, particularly in the Middle East.
During his visit, Goldberg told the BBC: “The question for prime minister Johnson is: ‘As you are moving towards Brexit … what are you going to do post-31 January as you come to Washington to negotiate a free-trade agreement with the United States?’ It’s absolutely in [your] interests and the people of Great Britain’s interests to join with President Trump, with the United States, to realign your foreign policy away from Brussels, and to join the maximum pressure campaign to keep all of us safe.”
And there is an interesting back story on Richard Goldberg, a John Bolton protégé anti-Iran hardliner, who threatened the British on behalf of Trump. James Carden, writing at The Nation, posits “Consider the following scenario: A Washington, DC–based, tax-exempt organization that bills itself as a think tank dedicated to the enhancement of a foreign country’s reputation within the United States, funded by billionaires closely aligned with said foreign country, has one of its high-ranking operatives (often referred to as ‘fellows’) embedded within the White House national security staff in order to further the oft-stated agenda of his home organization, which, as it happens, is also paying his salary during his year-long stint there. As it happens, this is exactly what the pro-Israel think tank the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) reportedly achieved in an arrangement brokered by former Trump national security adviser John Bolton.”
The FDD senior adviser in question, who was placed on the National Security Council, was Richard Goldberg. FDD is largely funded by Jewish American billionaires including vulture fund capitalist Paul Singer and Home Depot partner Bernard Marcus. Its officers meet regularly with Israeli government officials and the organization is best known for its unrelenting effort to bring about war with Iran. It has relentlessly pushed for a recklessly militaristic U.S. policy directed against Iran and also more generally in the Middle East. It is a reliable mouthpiece for Israel and, inevitably, it has never been required to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.
To be sure, Trump also has other neocons advising him on Iran, including David Wurmser, another Bolton associate, who has the president’s ear and is a consultant to the National Security Council. Wurmser has recently submitted a series of memos to the White House advocating a policy of “regime disruption” with the Islamic Republic that will destabilize it and eventually lead to a change of government. He may have played a key role in giving the green light to the assassination of Soleimani.
The good news, if there is any, is that Goldberg resigned on January 3rd, allegedly because the war against Iran was not developing fast enough to suit him and FDD, but he is symptomatic of the many neoconservative hawks who have infiltrated the Trump Administration at secondary and tertiary levels, where much of the development and implementation of policy actually takes place. It also explains that when it comes to Iran and the irrational continuation of a significant U.S. military presence in the Middle East, it is Israel and its Lobby that are steering the ship of state."

Comment by Tony Hall:
"For the government of one country to designate another country’s armed forces as a “terrorist organization” is essentially a declaration of war. When in April of 2019 Netanyahu claimed credit for Trump’s designation of the IRGC as a terrorist organization, he created the pseudo-law framework which became part of the justification for the Israeli-US war crime of 2 Jan. 2020.
Now the pressure is being placed squarely on the NATO countries, but especially Canada, to follow the Netanyahu-Trump lead by designating the IRGC as a terrorist organization. The Canadian branch of the ADL has even gone as far as giving an ultimatum to Justin Trudeau, an ultimatum to make the designation within a month… or else. Is the agenda to get NATO ensnared in a US war against Iran to serve Israel?
Ever since the misrepresentation of the events of 9/11 we have been engulfed in a massive propaganda campaign aimed at giving the appearance of legitimacy to pseudo-laws founded in major war crimes extending from Sept. of 2001 until today. The continuing reign of the ongoing lies and crimes of 9/11 has brought us to this point where the Axis of Deception, whose mascot of human degradation is Jeffrey Epstein, stands against the Axis of Resistance. In recent days a guiding spirit of the Axis of Resistance has become the martyred holy warrior, Qassem Soleimani."
"The Many Matryoska Dolls to America’s Way of Imagining Iran " (Crooke):
"Wurmser, Eli Lake reveals, has quietly been advising Bolton and the Trump Administration all along. This was the neo-con, who in 1996, compiled Coping with Crumbling States (which flowed on from the infamous Clean Break policy strategy paper, written for Netanyahu, as a blueprint for destructing Israel’s enemies). Both these papers advocated the overthrow of the Secular-Arab nationalist states – excoriated both as “crumbling relics of the ‘evil’ USSR” (using Popperian language, of course) – and inherently hostile to Israel (the real message).
Well (big surprise), Wurmser has now been at work as the author of how to ‘implode’ and destroy Iran. And his insight? “A targeted strike on someone like Soleimani”; split the Iranian leadership into warring factions; cut an open wound into the flesh of Iran’s domestic legitimacy; put a finger into that open wound, and twist it; disrupt – and pretend that the U.S. sides with the Iranian people, against its government.
Eli Lake seems, in his Bloomberg piece, to think that the Wurmser strategy has worked. Really? The problem here is that narratives in Washington are so far apart from the reality that exists on the ground – they simply do not touch at any point. Millions attended Soleimani’s cortege. His killing gave a renewed cohesion to Iran. Little more than a dribble have protested.
Now let us unpack the next ‘doll’: Trump bought into Wurmser’s ‘play’, albeit, with Trump subsequently admitting that he did the assassination under intense pressure from Republican Senators. Maybe he believed the patently absurd narrative that Iranians would ‘be dancing in the street’ at Soleimani’s killing. In any event, Trump is not known, exactly, for admitting his mistakes. Rather, when something is portrayed as his error, the President adopts the full ‘salesman’ persona: trying to convince his base that the murder was no error, but a great strategic success – “They like us”, Trump claimed of protestors in Iran.
Tom Luongo has observed: “Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate begins next week, and it’s clear that this will not be a walk in the park for the President. Anyone dismissing this because the Republicans hold the Senate, simply do not understand why this impeachment exists in the first place. It is [occurring because it offers] the ultimate form of leverage over a President whose desire to end the wars in the Middle East is anathema to the entrenched powers in the D.C. Swamp.” Ah, so here we arrive at another inner Matryoshka.
This is Luongo’s point: Impeachment was the leverage to drive open a wedge between Republican neo-conservatives in the Senate – and Trump. And now the Pelosi pressure on Republican Senators is escalating. The Establishment threw cold water over Trump’s assertion of imminent attack, as justification for murdering Soleimani, and Trump responds by painting himself further into a corner on Iran – by going the full salesman ‘monte’."
and:
"But also, as someone who once worked with Wurmser observed tartly: when you hear that name (Wurmser), immediately you think Netanyahu, his intimate associate."
The reason for the e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y Khazar nature of the impeachment in the House (the politicians, the witnesses, all the lawyers hanging around) - the noticing of which got TruNews in trouble with JewTube - is becoming clearer, with the most Khazar-bribed/blackmailed Republican Senators like Rubio, Cotton and Graham able to hold Trump to ransom in the impeachment in the Senate, insisting on what Bibi wants to have happen to Iran.

"Welcome, swamp monsters! How Bush-era warmonger David Wurmser is helping Trump take down Iran " (Bridge):
"Now the question: what could have compelled Trump to place any trust in Wurmser, whose resume reads like that of a bull in a china shop? One possibility is that Trump had no idea Wurmser was feeding Bolton and other members of his administration what amounted to yet more regime change shenanigans in the Middle East. This seems plausible considering the contradictory messages the White House was sending immediately following Soleimani’s cold-blooded murder.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, for example, claimed the US had specific information on “imminent” Iranian attacks “against American facilities, including American embassies [and] military bases.” Trump, meanwhile, didn’t sound any more confident with regards to the “imminent threat” of an Iranian attack when he told Fox News, “probably it was going to be the embassy in Baghdad.
Stranger yet, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, perhaps being more forthcoming than is usual for a military man with secrets to protect, admitted “I didn’t see [evidence], with regard to four embassies” being targeted for attack by Iran. Esper eventually came around to saying that he “shared the president’s view” of an imminent attack from Iran.

It seems plausible that the Trump administration could not get its story straight on where the information about Iran and an "imminent attack" had originated, because admitting it had derived from 'the swamp' would not have sat well with their voters. That is certainly no small consideration in an election year."
"Worst lie since fake claim sparked Iraq war? OPCW report behind Syria bombings was altered, whistleblower tells UNSC" (not giving Henderson a visa is Peak Asshole!):
"Even though several members of the fact finding team “had serious misgivings that a chemical attack had occurred” as early as July 2018, the organization’s final report – compiled by another group that never even visited the incident site – nonetheless concluded there were “reasonable grounds” to all but pin the blame for the attack on Damascus.
Sanitized of any dissenting opinion, the report ignored “findings, facts, information, data or analysis” gathered by the team in the areas of witness testimony, toxicology studies, chemical analysis, as well as ballistics, the retired inspector said."
"Interview: How the Libyan Landscape Is Changing As New Players Get Boots on the Ground " (Jay interviews Eljarh):
"Although reports have emerged that the recent phone call between Erdogan and Putin regarding Libya went badly, the two men have an interest in working together in Libya like they did in Syria. Both men have animosity towards Europe and the west and believe through a strategic partnership in Syria, Libya and elsewhere, they can form a bloc that would counter western influence and dominance in the region. Both Erdogan and Putin have shown pragmatism in Syria despite being on the opposing sides of the conflict, but they have managed to work out their differences and established a cooperative relationship that secures the interests of the both sides at the expense of western influence in the region. The difference between Erdogan and Putin in Libya is that Erdogan is much more forceful and aggressive in his approach. Putin still denies Russian involvement in Libya, while Erdogan is making it clear that he is ready to deploy forces to Libya in support of the GNA in Tripoli."
Ha!  Reminds me of those conferences the Khazars are always holding to discuss the 'plight' of the Palestinians, consisting of a bunch of Khazars and no Palestinians:  "Berlin conference prepares military occupation of Libya" (Schwarz) (it is funny to watch the various Euro-trash getting involved, on one side or the other depending on what they want to steal):
"The Libya conference, which took place this past Sunday in Berlin, was not about “peace” in the war-torn country, but about the distribution of the loot. It is reminiscent of the conferences at which the colonial powers of the 19th century divided up entire regions and continents among themselves.

The composition of the conference alone shows this. At the table sat the heads of state and government of the most powerful great and regional powers, but no representative of the country whose fate was being decided. The two main adversaries in the Libyan civil war, Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj and General Chalifa Haftar, had indeed been summoned to Berlin, but they had to wait in the anteroom until they were told what the conference had decided. Moreover, neither of them represents the Libyan people, serving rather as puppets of the various powers fighting for control of the oil-rich country."
and:
"The conflict between Turkey and Greece, which was not invited to Berlin despite outraged protests by the Athens government out of concern for gas deposits in the eastern Mediterranean, has also intensified. Over the weekend, Turkish hackers paralysed the websites of the Greek Foreign Ministry and secret service. Greek hackers retaliated by doing the same to the website of the Turkish Foreign Ministry. The two hostile NATO members have previously been on the verge of war."

"The Mad Geopolitics of Israel’s EastMed Gas Pipeline" (Engdahl). The Khazars are not used to a truculent bastard like Erdoğan who doesn't fold up immediately in the face of their plans.

We've sat around and let the Assholians and their vassals abuse the term 'terrorism' to play their geopolitical games ('terrorists' being basically people who want things that the Khazars don't want), so now we reap the reward of having 'terrorism' turned around and applied to domestic politics, with 'terrorists' being anybody who doesn't agree with the plans of the 1%:  "UK Counter Terrorism Policing document seeks to outlaw political dissent" (Scripps).

That expensive Assholian LNG is going to get dumped on Britain:  "Into the Fire: Boris Johnson's Call For New 'Iran Deal' Show UK Deep in 'Washington's Camp' - Prof" (Cureton):
"A UK government report also explained that the UK has been losing natural gas production capacity while increasing its demand and imports of liquid natural gas (LNG), further complicating issues for energy suppliers.
Boris Johnson's pivot to Washington could potentially satisfy two preconditions for a major trade deal with the US: allowing the United States to sell its expensive LNG to the UK and deterring Iranian oil firms from selling its own reserves, potentially the largest in the world via the South Pars 11 fields.
But the US is still the biggest winner in this by racketeering the UK's energy security and controlling who London can trade with, namely those already in the US geopolitical orbit along the North Sea, in addition to the UK being pressured from receiving future reserves shared amongst the EU27 set to earn new inflows from the nearly complete Nord Stream II pipeline."
