We need to clean this up

"Real Takeaway: The FBI Influenced the Election of a President" (Van Buren):
". . . the most important conclusion of the report: there is no longer a way to claim America’s internal intelligence agency, the FBI, did not play a role in the 2016 election. There is only to argue which side they favored and whether they meddled via clumsiness, as a coordinated action, or as a chaotic cluster of competing pro- and anti- Clinton/Trump factions inside the Bureau. And that’s the tally before anyone brings up the FBI’s use of a human informant inside the Trump campaign, the FBI’s use of both FISA warrants and pseudo-legal warrantless surveillance against key members of the Trump team, the FBI’s use of opposition research from the Steele Dossier, and so on.

The good news is the Deep State seems less competent than we originally feared. But even if one fully accepts the IG report’s conclusion that all this— and there’s a lot — was not intentional, at a minimum it makes clear to those watching ahead of 2020 what tools are available and the impact they can have. While we continue to look for the bad guy abroad, we have already met the enemy and he is us."
"FBI Agents Called Hillary "President" While Investigating Her, Texted "Screw You Trump" On Election Day" (Durden):
". . . all four FBI case agents working the Hillary Clinton email investigation - the other two being Peter Strzok and Lisa Page - were ardent Clinton supporters, and at least three harbored animus towards Trump."
"DOJ IG, Horowitz, Fails to Admit What He Proves by Publius Tacitus" (my emphasis in red):
"There is more evidence of the FBI's extreme prejudice against Trump and in favor of Hillary. Again, Horowitz only mentions this in passing, put does concede that the behavior and actions are bizarre, but this is hidden in footnote 181 (which is found on page 328):

We were surprised to learn that FBI leadership decided to assign many of the key members of the Midyear team, immediately after determining that no charges should be brought against then candidate Clinton, to the Russia investigation, which touched upon the campaign of then candidate Trump. This is particularly so given the questions being raised by candidate Trump and his supporters regarding the declination decision in the Midyear investigation. While we recognize that staffing decisions are for management to make, we question the judgment of assigning agents who had just determined that one candidate running in an election should not be prosecuted to an investigation that relates to the campaign of the other candidate in the election. The appearance problems created by such a staffing decision were exacerbated here due to the text messages expressing political opinions that we discuss later in this report.

When I worked with the CIA we used to call this No Shit Analysis. Thank you Captain Obvious. Why in the world would you assign the same people who were working on the Hillary Clinton investigation on the Trump/Russia Collusion investigation when both cases were still active? This is more than a problem of appearance. This is circumstantial evidence of an attempted political coup. I give Horowitz credit for at least putting this fact on the record. But his refusal to call this out for what it is can be attributed to his caution of not appearing to be partisan. He is striving mightily to be a straight shooter."
and:
"Comey and his band of incompetents insisted, apparently, that they found no evidence of intent by Hillary Clinton to misuse classified material. That is total horseshit. The evidence is indisputable by the very fact that classified material was on  an unclassified server. How is that so? There are two types of classified computer systems throughout the U.S. Government. One handles material classified as CONFIDENTIAL and SECRET (the military calls this the SIPRNET). The other handles TOP SECRET material (it is called SOIS in the military network). You cannot send TOP SECRET material to a computer that is cleared only for SECRET. The only way to move TOP SECRET or SECRET material to an unclassified computer requires that you print off a hard copy and scan it or that you download it on a thumb drive (or other media) and then physically copy it to the UNCLASSIFIED server. This is not something that happens by mistake or is inadvertent.

Helen Keller could see this simple fact. Hillary Clinton most certainly showed intent to put classified material on an unclass system. The central question is who did this and why? Unfortunately, Horowitz does not address this point. It remains unanswered."
 "IG Report Confirms Obama Lied About Hillary Email Server" (Durden):
"What's more, FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok told the Inspector General that the top brass of the agency wrestled over whether or not to include Obama's involvement in Clinton's exoneration statement - and that former FBI Director James Comey knew Obama had lied:

“A paragraph [in Comey’s "exoneration" statement] summarizing the factors that led the FBI to assess that it was possible that hostile actors accessed Clinton’s server was added, and at one point referenced Clinton’s use of her private email for an exchange with then President Obama while in the territory of a foreign adversary,” the IG report reads. “This reference later was changed to ‘another senior government official,’ and ultimately was omitted.”"
Referring to the Obama connection to Clinton emails, Cheryl Mills told Podesta "we need to clean this up".

Morally abhorrent

"The US & Nicaragua: a Case Study in Historical Amnesia & Blindness" (Kovalik).  The mysterious snipers, just like at the Maidan, seem to be the new technique.  The other noticeable feature, part of The Clarification, but not new, is that the US 'left', even those of which who should know better, sides with the CIA.

"Tales of North Korean Abuses: No Facts, All Fiction" (Cartalucci).  Another technique, as old as the CIA, is spreading CIA propaganda by 'journalists' posing as well meaning proponents of 'human rights'.

"The Babchenko False Flag Exposed The Deep State-Journalist Nexus" (Korybko):
"By now it’s taken for granted that some journalists clandestinely cooperate, and even coordinate their activities, with their de-facto handlers from the permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies after witnessing how the media waged its infowar against Trump over the past 3 years, but Babchenko’s false flag “assassination” introduced a new dimension into all of this.

Surprisingly, the US-funded “Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty” platform reported that the staged photo of his “killing” was “first published on the Facebook page of a former Ukrainian reporter who says he now works for a shadowy consultancy organization based in the Washington, D.C., area”.

The only way that he could have received that was from a member of the Ukrainian “deep state” itself, which passed it along to their DC-based asset with the intent of “laundering” the picture through social media and making it “organically” go viral, representing yet another level of collaboration between the “deep state” and so-called “journalists”.

Altogether, this false flag involved two separate, but interconnected, influence operations through willing journalist participants, the first and most obvious being Babchenko himself – who can be described more as an information provocateur and even a troll instead of a journalist – and the second DC-based individual who laundered the fake pic of Babchenko’s ”assassination”."
 Tweet (Adam H. Johnson):
"you have to read the fine print to see beyond their moral preening but the WaPo editorial board has opposed all measures to actually end the US/UK/Saudi bombing of Yemen. Now it acts like a bunch of bleeding heart humanitarians. Peak liberal militarism."

"Desperate Poroshenko Calls Putin as War Stakes Escalate" (Popov).  I hate to say it, but it is possible that Poroshenko is a sane, patriotic guy who realizes that Ukraine is being used as a puppet to start a WWIII which is not in its best interests, and realizes he needs Putin's help to manoeuvre amongst the traitors around him.

"Finally Democratic senators exercise their oversight powers to ensure that Trump doesn't... withdraw troops from Korea? Amazing"
"In Their Own Words: Was Every Israeli Prime Minister A Racist?" (Inlakesh).  "The Knesset officially declares that Israeli democracy is for Jews only" (Gurvitz).  Supremacism is the thing that is never to be noticed, no matter how often the supremacists insist on it.  See also!:  "Michael Chabon’s views on intermarriage are increasingly mainstream.

"US Officially Resumes Funding For The White Helmets In Syria" (Durden).  You can track the shekel shipments as they arrive in Washington.  The Russians, who have an excellent track record at this, are predicting another false-flag chemical attack to be blamed on Assad, for which the White Helmets will be needed to produce the PR videos:  "Russia Warns "Credible Information" Of Impending Staged Chemical Attack In Syria" (Durden).

"Can the EU Become a Partner for Russia?" (The Saker).  "Is Europe Too Brainwashed To Normalize Relations With Russia?" (Roberts).  There is a massive structural problem, with all the worst Eurotrash politicians at the top of party 'lists', or appointed by those at the top of party 'lists', thus completely insulated from any possible electoral consequences - note how the Ontario Liberal party was just completely extinguished in the latest Ontario first-past-the-post elections, ruining the best job most of the members could ever hope to have - and can just lay around and take the most appealing bribes without any fear of repercussions.  It is not brainwashing - everybody knows what the only long- and short-term rational decision is - it is just corruption encouraged by utterly incompetently devised political systems (specifically imposed by the Americans after WWII to emasculate Europe, as Europeans were considered, not without reason, to be incapable of governing themselves, systems so terrible, but so successful from the point of view of oligarchs, that they are considered the political science gold standard to apply everywhere else!).

"The Trump-Kim Deal Is the First Example of the “New Washington Consensus”" (Korybko).  Writing geopolitics on the basis that the Americans have big, rational, intellectual plans to deal with their imperial collapse, and are capable of following these plans, is a business fraught with peril.

"Of Carrots, Sticks, And How The Empire Fails" (Luongo):
"Once you start with sanctions and threats, you can’t stop.  It’s go all the way or have your bluff called.  With Europe Trump holds aces.  They are dependent on the U.S. and their weakness will be the U.S.’s gain over the next year or two.  Europe’s sovereign debt crisis will explode and the U.S. will see massive foreign in-flows.

It’ll be a massive win but it won’t be the win.  And in winning over Europe it sets him up for the big loss; the fight for the Middle East and Eurasian integration.

His gambit with Russia and Iran becoming an all-or-nothing proposition.  Trump has just about pushed all-in.  Russia/Iran/China’s passivity has emboldened him. The fecklessness of the Obama administration creating dumpster fires in Ukraine and Syria, however, handed him bad cards and a dwindling stack.

He hasn’t won a hand in the Middle East yet.  Sure he’s made headlines but Putin, Rouhani, Nasrallah and Assad have won all the skirmishes that matter.  Any wins Trump has gotten were easy ones to pick up.  The framework for a deal has always been the same.  And no amount of Kissinger-style complications were going to change them.

Iran no more wants to stay in Syria than Putin wants to intervene in The Donbass. So, getting Iran out of Syria is easy.  All Trump has to do is leave.  Israel won’t like it, but it won’t be their decision.  Putin made that clear to Netanyahu when he visited Moscow.

The Kurds are the ones to make that decision for Trump, now that they are openly negotiating with Damascus after Trump backstabbed them over Manbij.

Without the support of the Kurds, the U.S. cannot stay in Syria at all.

So, when we reach the showdown hand Trump won’t have aces.  And the classic Russian cauldron will collapse in around him.  And losing there will be the end of the U.S. empire abroad.

And the world will rejoice."

False-flag whistleblowing

"The Mueller Indictments Still Don’t Add Up to Collusion" (Maté).  Exemplary explanation of the state of play.  If you got your information from the Clintonista 'journalists' (e.g., Marshall), you wouldn't know any of this (though Marshall has mentioned the telling fact that Papadopoulos was pressured to take a plea through Mueller's threats to charge him with being an unregistered foreign agent of Israel - ironies abound when #Russiagate is a Khazar conspiracy to remove Putin from the scene as he is interfering in their land theft scheming - where the real possible collusion lies, though, of course, nobody dare mention it).

"On The Skripal Poisoning Case And The Questions It Leaves Unanswered" ('Adam Carter').  A summary.  See also Slane:  Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, with Part 5 yet to come.  I'm still of the opinion that attempts to tie Skripal to the Dodgy Dossier serve to obscure the real culprits, Ukrainian intelligence.

"Guccifer 2.0: Game Over" ('Adam Carter'):
"Anyone critically analysing the nature of Guccifer2.0 can see enough to identify whom he was most likely was or was serving through his activities online. - His lack of credibility and the inevitability of his Clinton Foundation server hack 'take' being exposed as nonsense makes it clear that Guccifer2.0 was a fraudulent construct intended to counter the leaks and try to take-down the credibility of Wikileaks as collaterol in the self-destruction of it's own reputation."
and:
"It seemed like there was a good chance Warren Flood had involvement at first, however, he doesn't appear to have been actively working for anyone's campaign in 2016 and it had been 6 years since he had worked at the White House. His name and the fact it's on the GSA license could suggest that the dodgy Russian template document was generated on a computer at (or previously from) the White House (from when Flood was Senator Biden's technology director).

However, Flood himself didn't appear to be someone (or likely to be working for someone) with a motive to discredit Wikileaks and have Russian hackers blamed (nor the experience to pull off the mimicry and deceptions observed).

Those with a motive mostly strongly correlating with this at the time would have been the Clinton Campaign (to mitigate damage to HRC's electoral campaign) and the DNC leadership (who also had reputations at stake from the real leaks being published)

As of June 12th, they were in a position where Julian Assange had just announced WikiLeaks' upcoming release of Clinton's emails, Clinton was still under FBI investigation, Trump was attacking Clinton for her use of a private server with his supporters frequently chanting "lock her up!" at rallies).

The campaign and the DNC were in a desperate position and really needed something similar to a Russian hacker narrative (something that leaks have since shown the DNC had started building a month or two prior to the hacking claims) and one where they would be fortunate to have a seemingly clumsy hacker that leaves lots of 'fingerprints' tainting files and bringing the reputation of leaks into question. - Sure enough, 2-3 days later, Guccifer2.0, the world's weirdest hacker was spawned and started telling lies in an effort to attribute himself to the malware discoveries & to Wikileaks.


Of course, attribution to the HRC camp or DNC leadership is difficult because what we've seen from Guccifer 2.0 suggests an operation carried out by someone with considerable cyber-security and counter-intelligence skills (the misdirection and deception fooled a lot of the cyber-security industry and had multiple intelligence agencies convinced - they knew exactly what they were doing) and while their breach claims were discredited, they still had or had been given access to files.

Who we're really dealing with requires understanding the full picture (everything outlined above for starters), knowing about CrowdStrike's activities in April of 2016 (which you'll find in additional articles provided further down this page), considering the claims they made in an article released on 14 June 2016 and then considering that there is only really one party that could feasibly have pulled of the whole fake Russian hacker persona.

Surely, it had to be those who had access to everything and that, thanks to the DNC's handling of DHS/FBI, were the only party ever allowed to directly assess the alleged crime scene of the DNC's server, didn't it?

They also issued specious claims about the "Trump Opposition Research" being targeted (never demonstrated or explained) which, in turn, actually gave the Guccifer 2.0 persona the means of "authenticating" himself to the press the very next day (on which he, of course, appeared and used a deliberately "Russia-tainted" version of the Trump opposition research document to lure the press with).

So, at present, in my personal opinion, it looks a lot like Shawn Henry & Dmitri Alperovitch (CrowdStrike executives), working for either the HRC campaign or DNC leadership were more likely to have been behind the Guccifer 2.0 operation."
"Guccifer 2’s West Coast Fingerprint" (The Forensicator).  CrowdStrike's main offices are in Sunnyvale, California.

"These Messages Show Julian Assange Talked About Seeking Hacked Files From Guccifer 2.0" (Collier).  Another embarrassing attempt (the comments are funny).  See:  "Attorneys In Seth Rich-Linked Defamation Case Demand Identifying Info Of Thousands Of Twitter Users [Updated]".  It seems obvious that people bizarrely trying to tie Seth's brother (wtf?) into this did so solely with the motive of trying to confuse the situation.

Ukrainian Americans with ties to the Clinton campaign, Ukrainian Khazar gangsters with ties to Israel, and the Khazar desire to start WWIII in order to rein in Putin's disruption of the Khazar land theft schemes, all of course tied together with the Khazar fascination with the false flag as a tool of war.

Rootless hair shafts

"VIDEO: Anthony Bourdain’s Last Interview".  Suicidal?  "Was Anthony Bourdain Murdered for Humanising Palestinians?"  Not crazy at all, as the Khazars have an obvious scorched-earth policy in dealing with even the slightest deviation from their supremacist orthodoxy.

Seemingly endless article documenting in minute detail how conventionally American Bourdain's opinions were (probably explaining why he was so universally beloved by Americans - he exemplified this idea that even though the American government does atrocious things, Americans themselves are actually kind and well-meaning people who just want everybody to get along):  "Anthony Bourdain’s State Department Smorgasbord".  Comment at OffGuardian by tutisicecream:
"Interesting insight into the underbelly of the MSM and it’s ever increasing ways to create the story in order take-in the population at large. To feed them a memes based diet at every turn.

This part grabbed my eye:

“According to Bourdain, one of the security personnel available to him was

a British guy who’s sort of in and out of public service, shall we say. Sometimes he’s helping film crews, other times he’s suddenly vacationing in Libya during the run up to the revolution. He was sending me emails saying, “Oh it’s awesome here. The kids are great. There’s like a Libyan anti-Gaddafi rap scene. It’s a really hopeful awesome place. You should totally come here.” So from that point on we were looking.

Someone doesn’t necessarily need to be a treasured asset of the Time Warner media empire in order to work with MI6 officers fomenting regime change, but it can’t hurt.”

Is this James LeMesurier and his private company Mayday of the White Helmets fame? Highly possible, it’s known he was working in Libya. This in and out of public service… involved with training/helping film crews… setting narratives [stories for public consumption] such as Little Bana… All reminds me of the other story creator for MI6 Christopher Steele his private company Orbis linked to many fake narratives and the Skripal affair."
"George Clooney’s Monsters: Read About the White Helmets".  The PR movie-making business is tough on everybody.

I guess somebody in the British intelligence unit that publishes the Guardian still thinks it is worthwhile to flog this dead horse:  "The Guardian mounts defence of British government lies over Skripals" (Shaoul).

"Israeli army edits video of Palestinian medic its troops shot dead to misleadingly show she was 'human shield for Hamas'" (McKernan) (also, isn't supremacism amazing?!).  It is funny (((they))) aren't more competent at lying, but (((they))) assume the (((media))) will have (((their))) backs. "NYT Carries IDF Attack on Murdered Medic–Reveals It’s a Smear in 20th Paragraph" (Johnson). Buchsbaum, again.

David Koch, mysteriously retired (who retires from being an asshole?), gets epsteined and makes the gossip blinds:  "Blind Item #4 - A Birdie Blind Item" (CDaN). The lesson is that even the biggest asshole can fall into a trap set by bigger assholes.

"Documents reveal the vast influence of Koch brothers in US universities and public schools" (Simkins).

"More Than Just Russia — There’s a Strong Case for the Trump Team Colluding With Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the UAE" (Scahill).  I haven't got the time (who does?) to watch what is no doubt a lousy propaganda video, but the comments are mostly woke.  The Clintonistas, for the purposes of WWIII, and their need to avoid positive political policies, need the villain to be Putin, even as what evidence there is of hanky-panky points towards Israel and MbZ.  See also (it never ends, despite the fact the unceasing nonsense has obviously started to hurt the Democrats politically, and all the evidence thus far points directly to a Barry-Killary trick to subvert Trump's campaign using illegal means, while trying to jump-start WWIII):  "There’s actually lots of evidence of Trump-Russia collusion" (Yglesias).

"Maltese Professor Interacted With Institutions Known For Propaganda Peddling" (Craddick):
"In the latest revelation concerning the ‘mysterious Maltese Professor,’ Joseph Mifsud, and his involvement in the “Russiagate” saga, Disobedient Media can additionally reveal that Mifsud interacted on a number of occasions with individuals tied to think tanks known for engaging in “pay to play” behavior for the purposes of pushing specific policies on behalf of donors. The involvement of these institutes, which include the Atlantic Council, Brookings Institute and Open Society Foundation raises questions about whether or not certain private parties were involved with efforts to target Donald Trump’s presidential campaign for their own political benefit."
A tough row to hoe, given Soros' own public boasting, but it is done with elaborate strawmen (he wasn't a 'Nazi' as he wasn't in the SS, or wasn't a signed-up member of the Nazi Party):  "George Soros is not a Nazi, explained".

Finally (sheesh! - are the Kurds just morons?):  "US-Backed Kurds Agree To "Unconditional Talks" With Syrian Government After Pentagon-Turkey Deal".

I wouldn't hope for any help there, despite the fact it is clearly the right and obligation of the Australian government to be screaming bloody murder in diplomatic protests over what is being done to an Australian citizen:  "Pressure Builds On Australian Government To Act On Assange Stalemate" (Tranter).  Have you noticed that the most vehement critics of Assange are 'journalists', no doubt embarrassed at how he constantly upstages their incompetence and toadying?  Some room for hope:  "Is The Zeitgeist Finally Shifting In Favor Of Julian Assange?"

"“A lot of people have asked, ‘Can you run a separate race, can you put an asterisk next to their name, do something that shows there is a standard that is different from that?'” CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff noted to the CT Post. “When you get into that playing out, you have got civil rights issues.”"
"Air Force officer missing for 35 years found living in California":
"The Air Force said that Hughes had a "Top Secret/Single Scope Background Investigation" clearance at the time of his disappearance.
His mysterious disappearance during the Cold War spurred theories that he had been abducted by the Soviet Union or defected to what was then known as the USSR to work against the US.
In 1985 and 1986, several French and American rocket ships failed to launch properly and subsequently exploded, including the Challenger space shuttle. In the wake of those disasters, Los Angeles Times journalist Tad Szulc reported in July of 1986 that intelligence officers believed the rockets may have been sabotaged with Hughes' help.
"(Intelligence officers) see a clear link between Hughes and possible sabotage of the American and French launches," the newspaper reported then.

Unwilling to consider

"How Corporate Media Got the Trump-Kim Summit All Wrong" (Porter) (my emphasis in red):
"One of the few Americans who can speak with authority on North Korea’s calculus regarding nuclear weapons is Joel S. Wit, who was senior adviser to the U.S. negotiator with North Korea, Ambassador Robert L. Gallucci, from 1993 to 1995, and who from 1995 to 1999 was coordinator for the 1994 “Agreed Framework” with North Korea. More importantly, Wit also participated in a series of informal meetings with North Korean officials in 2013 about North Korea’s thinking on its nuclear weapons.

At a briefing on the Trump-Kim summit last week sponsored by the website 38 North, which he started and still manages, Wit made it clear that this dismissal of North Korea’s willingness to agree to denuclearization is misguided. “Everyone underestimates the momentum behind what North Korea is doing,” he said. “It’s not a charm offensive or a tactical trick.”

Wit revealed in an article last month that the North Koreans had informed the American participants in those 2013 meetings that Kim was already anticipating negotiations with the United States in which North Korea would agree to give up nuclear weapons in return for steps by the United States that removed its threatening posture toward North Korea. Wit said his North Korean interlocutors had pointed to a June 2013 statement by the National Defense Commission of North Korea—the nation’s highest policymaking body—which they stated emphatically had been ordered by Kim himself to indicate a readiness to negotiate with the United States on denuclearization. The statement declared, “The denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is the behest of our leader” and “must be carried out . . . without fail.” And it went on to urge “high-level talks between the DPRK [North Korea] and the U.S. authorities to . . . establish peace and security in the region.”

The statement came a few months after Kim had resumed nuclear testing in an intensive effort to establish a credible nuclear deterrent. In part that was because of the young Kim’s conviction that the United States believed it could “bully” his regime in the transition after Kim father, Kim Jong Il, died in December 2011, according to Wit’s North Korean interlocutors.

But those same North Korean officials also told Wit that the new buildup would be of limited duration—only until it became possible to improve relations with the United States. That explanation suggested that Kim was pursuing a military capability primarily to serve as an incentive for Washington to come to the negotiating table and as a set of bargaining chips to obtain what it really wanted—an end to the hostile policy toward the regime by the United States.

Wit revealed that in the private meetings with Americans, North Korean officials presented a concrete plan for a three-phase agreement with the United States on denuclearization in which each side would undertake a set of related steps simultaneously. The American participants were told that the first stage of North Korea’s implementation would be a freeze on its nuclear weapons development, followed by disabling key facilities and finally dismantling the facilities as well the nuclear weapons. The U.S. steps would include diplomatic recognition, ending economic sanctions and removing the U.S. military threat to North Korea, in part by finally bringing the Korean War to a formal conclusion.

It was the same approach to a denuclearization agreement to which North Korea had agreed in 1994 and again in 2005 and 2007, but which had failed primarily because of the reluctance of the Clinton and Bush administrations to commit to entering into a normal political and economic relationship with North Korea.

The political context for U.S.-North Korean negotiations has changed dramatically since 2013. The most obvious change is that North Korea has an ICBM capable of reaching the United States for the first time. Although it provoked threats by the Trump administration in 2017 to attack North Korea if it completed work on the ICBM, it also has prompted the White House to consider going further than previous administrations in meeting North Korean diplomatic demands.

Furthermore, in 2013, the South Korean government was hostile to diplomacy with the North, and the Obama administration was unwilling to consider any major political or security concessions to North Korea until after it had given up its nuclear weapons. Now South Korean President Moon Jae-in has gone further than any previous government in pushing to end the 70-year military tension and formal state of war between North and South. Moon’s commitment to a Korean peace agreement appears to be the single biggest reason that Kim switched gears so dramatically in a New Year’s Day speech that presaged dramatic diplomatic moves in 2018.

Reflecting the new political-diplomatic situation, in April Kim put forward a new strategic line calling for the bulk of the state’s resources to go to economic development. That replaced the bjungjin line that Kim had introduced in March 2013 putting economic rebuilding and military needs on an equal footing.

Kim has made major adjustments in the North Korean negotiating posture that prevailed when the 2013 meetings were held with nonofficial Americans. The North Koreans had insisted then that the United States would have to remove their troops from South Korea as part of any agreement, according to Wit. But that demand has now been dropped, as Moon told Trump in mid-April."

Orderly transfer of power

It looks like Trump's performance at the G-7 was supposed to prove to Kim what a hard ass Trump is, not a guy to be messed with, and everybody else was supposed to play along, until Trump failed to read the room and overdid it.

"After What Trump did to Iran and Canada, why Should N Korea trust Talks with Him?" (Cole).  The fact that Bolton was uninvited, and then re-invited, to Singapore is not a good sign.

"Korea, Russia, China: The Neocon-Trump’s Strategy" (Konstantakopoulos).  Starts out fine, but gets a little weird at the end.

"In China the SCO Is Conducting a Productive and Civilised Summit While the G7 Is One Big Argument Inside a Political Circus" (Garrie).

"Putin and Xi top the G6+1" (Escobar):
"In parallel, diplomats in Brussels confirmed to Asia Times there are insistent rumbles about Trump possibly dreaming of a G3 composed of just US, Russia and China. Trump, after all, personally admires the leadership qualities of both Putin and Xi, while deriding the Kafkaesque EU bureaucratic maze and its weaklings, currently represented by the M3 (Merkel, Macron, May).

In Europe, no one seems to be listening to informed advice, such as provided by Belgian economist Paul de Grauwe, who’s pleading for Frankfurt and Berlin to manage a common debt, without which the EU won’t survive the sovereign crises of individual members.

Trump, for all his dizzying inconsistencies, seems to have understood that the G7 is a Walking Dead, and the heart of the action revolves around China, Russia and India, which not by accident form the hard node of BRICS.

The problem is the US national security strategy, as well as the national defense strategy, advocate no less than Cold War 2.0 against both China and Russia all across Eurasia. All bets are off, however, on who blinks first."
Running the entire EU solely for the benefit of German banks isn't working out!

As straight-up insane as it sounds, all the usual Democrat suspects are still spouting their conspiracy theory that everything Trump does is based on his repaying Putin for Putin arranging for him to beat Killary! The paradox is that it appears that the obsession with #Russiagate - an obsession which voters rightly see as a confusion intended to replace actual positive policies for governing - will cost the Democrats the chance to take over enough seats to actually have a chance to remove Trump through impeachment.

Do we dare guess that Trump's weakening of the United States is intentional, like the British effectively turned over control of the world to the US during the Suez crisis?  "Trump’s Big Picture" (Stryker).  The Brits did a deal where their 0.1% would continue to maintain and build upon their massive wealth in return for a certain loss of geopolitical power.  American elites could do the same thing in the face of the inevitability of the shift of power to China-Russia.  The current bubble in the American economy makes acceptance of weakness difficult, and Trump himself is probably not aware of what he is doing, but an orderly transfer of power would be in everybody's best interests.

Soul to the devil

A comment to the CDaN gossip blind by 'Bobbi Beausoleil' on the possible faked death by car crash of James Dean, and an old guy from Alberta with a strange name:
"Piecing it all together... someone posted a link to William Jabez Stoness (as the guy who died in the card accident in his 90s, which would be the pseudonym of James Dean - if we believe it's him). Apparently Jabez Stone (damn close) is a character in a 1941 movie called The Devil and Daniel Webster: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Devil_and_Daniel_Webster_(film). It's about a guy who starts out as a simple, kind farmer, but who sells his soul to the devil, becomes rich, etc, a morality tale. Dean was raised in Indiana in farm country and his dad was a farmer (before he became a dentist). Could the story have had an impact on him? Enough for him to base his new name on the main character? In addition, screenwriter William Bast was one of Dean's best friends (William Jabez Stone - ss)."
The dead guy from Alberta liked motorcycles (and the date of his marriage could have been faked, with the moving multiple times having to do with keeping his identity hidden) (my emphasis in red):
"William Jabez Stoness, 95 years, of Trochu, Alberta went to be with his Lord Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at 2:30 pm.  Bill was born in the family home in the Bellgrove district, September 3, 1922, to William Thomas & Nellie Ardeena (Clough) Stoness.

Bill was very active, enjoyed farming, hunting, fishing, construction, and mechanics.  Bill owned several Harley’s, an Indian & a BSA, on which he drove his mother to church.  He met his lovely wife, Reta Winnifred Orr at the Nazarene Church in Red Deer.  They were married November 18, 1949.  Over the years they moved multiple times, developing lasting friendships.  Bill always made time for others and always kept busy building or modifying items.

Loving father to Elsworth Lester (Penny) Stoness, Barbara Lorraine (Terry) McMillan, Joan Valerie (Elmo) Guynup, and Carolyn Lorna (Alan) Ritter.  Bill is blessed with 15 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.  He was predeceased by one brother Harold, and four sisters – Muriel Sich, Catherine Klepper, Gladys Leonard, and Viola Saxby.  Funeral Service will be held 11 am on Friday, May 4, 2018, at the Olds First Baptist Church, Olds, Alberta.

Real love stories never have endings."
Jabez Stone is indeed a character in the story, and movie, The Devil and Daniel Webster, a farmer who sold his soul to the devil.  William Bast was Dean's friend and eventual biographer.  Thus William Jabez Stoness is William + Jabez Stone + ss.  Dean seems to have been concerned with being corrupted by Hollywood, and thus perhaps saw himself as a man who sold his soul to the devil.

"80 Things You Didn’t Know About James Dean" (Hiebert):
  • "3. As a child, Dean would disassemble and then reassemble his bicycle over and over again." 
  • "4. Dean told more than one friend that he did not expect to live past 30. When discussing the risk involved in racing cars, he said: “What better way to die? It’s fast and clean and you go out in a blaze of glory.”"
  • "12. A few weeks before his death, Dean appeared in a short public announcement about road safety, where he said, “Take it easy driving. The life you save might be mine.”"
  • "43. Dean spent a great deal of his childhood on his uncle’s farm, where he swept the barn, fed the chickens, collected eggs, milked the cows, and planted seeds."
  • "62. As a teen, Dean was a member of 4-H, and even won a blue ribbon for a soil project."
There are issues with the crash.  "Death of James Dean" ('Philip Cross').  The driver who allegedly turned in front of Dean was found not criminally responsible, yet Dean, an experienced race car driver, wasn't speeding, and there were no adverse weather or road conditions.  He conveniently had a photographer following behind him in another car.  His car, which would have had considerable value, has subsequently disappeared.

‘Religious Discrimination’

"Nordstream 2 Reveals the Extent of U.S. Weakness" (Luongo).  "The Next US President Will Save Europe From Russia’s Secret Plot" (Fomine).

"Jews Falsely Claim That Iran has Admitted Involvement in the 9/11 Attacks" (Rogers).  Tweet (Tarik Cyril Amar) (the link is probably this one):
"IF you actually watch the interview, then interpreting it as an ‘admission’ of Iranian support for 9/11 is absurd. It’s rather the opposite. That this is misrepresented in this manner right now may be part of preparing another insane war in ME. https://twitter.com/ozkaterji/status/1005241699738808320 …"
More obvious, and desperate, crap from the Saudi/Khazars, but there is a market for nonsense amongst the extreme American right and some evangelicals. See "Mossad agent: Israel wanted to create World War III in 2011" (Alexis).

"When Private Ryan is shamed by quiet heroes in the Syrian Arab Army".  Part of the problem is that the US cannot admit it has lost its power, from which much of the self-worth of Americans derives, but the other part is that Americans can't admit that, since its creation, the United States has usually been the biggest asshole nation in the world (with Israel, of course, the other contender). Have you noticed how much Americans go out of their way to praise their own country - 'this great nation of ours' - when they casually talk about anything?  It's bizarre!

"For Lasting Peace, President Moon Must Lead South Korea Out of America’s Orbit" (Smallwood).  We can thank John Bolton for clarifying things for the South Koreans.  American influence is entirely toxic.

"Pepe Escobar: How Singapore, Astana, & St.Petersburg Preview A New World Order" (Escobar).  Remember, things like the G-7 were set up to increase American power over its lackeys, so it is almost too on point that a shambolic G-6+1 occurs more or less at the same time as SPIEF and SCO meetings.  The usual all-stick/no-carrot policy means Americans have no way to deal with this.

"EAEU, Iran Sign Provisional Deal to Create Free Trade Zone".  "Eurasian Economic Union" ('Philip Cross')

"That Satanic Orb Thing Returned, This Time Appearing in Paris – Macron Swore Allegiance" (Anglin).  I usually don't go in for that traditional conspiracy stuff about the Illuminati and secret hand signals, but somebody is up to something here, probably some Saudi/crypto shit.

Speaking of cryptos, MbZ/Dahlan:  "‘UAE buying Jerusalem properties on behalf of Israel’".

"United Against Swindlers" (Atzmon).  It isn't just the massive over-representation in con-men and grifters, but the fact that Israel has been set up to shelter them from any law.

"Ex-Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Announces He Considering Overpriced, Mediocre Presidential Run" (The Onion).  Also.  Did you notice how suddenly un-funny The Onion instantly became when Haim took it over, but how he appears to have found his funny bone when Israel decided to massacre Gazans?  "The Onion’s Brutal Israel Commentary Goes Beyond Satire" (Peyser).

'Presidential material' news:  tweet (eve peyser):
"SERIOUSLY?"
"Sheldon Adelson: the casino mogul driving Trump's Middle East policy" (McGreal).  Just saying this out loud is taboo.

"Israel, Gaza, Google, and Kneecapping" (TNB).  "Israel To Ask FIFA to Ban Argentina From World Cup Over ‘Religious Discrimination’ After Canceled Match".  "US Ambassador to Israel (((Frum))) Tells MSM to "Keep their Mouths Shut" when Talking About Israel Murdering Palestinians " (Bacon).  "Argentinian soccer team boycotts Israel — and ‘NY Times’ whitewash fails to quote a single player" (North).  "‘Kite terrorism’ — Israeli government takes on ‘sarcastic’ global press".  Kite?  With a 't'?

I don't usually recommend videos, but this is a very good, very thorough, evisceration:  "Empire Files: John Oliver and Venezuela". Oliver is a hero of what passes for American 'progressive' politics, and he is, undoubtedly, Evil.  He lies constantly.  See also:  "Observing Venezuela’s Election and the Myths Around It" (Fox) and "Venezuelan elections: chavismo still in power, US still belligerent, media still dishonest" (Vaz).

Trump corporate holdings (Cryptome).

Another famous unsolved case and familial DNA:  "Aurora cold case investigators seek genealogy DNA link to solve notorious hammer murders".

"When, Where, And How Will The Empire Strike Back?" (Jatras).  The logical step is to assassinate Trump and blame it, false-flag style, on Putin.

Complex and heartbreaking

Well, it is not all bad news, some things are just pure joy:  "Fox News star Charles Krauthammer reveals he has weeks to live in heartbreaking letter" (you may have to cut and paste this link as i can't get it to work from this posting).  What is the exact opposite of 'heartbreaking'?  I wondered why he hasn't been screaming recently for the violent death by the millions of the enemies of his group of supremacist monsters.

And yet more Goyim, I . . . "‘Israel has no choice’ — ‘NY Times’ columnists largely line up behind Gaza massacre" (Weiss).  "With Literal Nazis Running for Office, NYT Suggests Candidate’s Israel Criticism Is Antisemitic" (Johnson).  "Israeli military attempts to smear slain Palestinian medic with inaccurate video" ('inaccurate' is too polite).  "‘New York Times’ teams up with Israel to smear slain medic Razzan al-Najjar as ‘complex,’ not innocent" (Johnson, North, Weiss).  His name is Herbert Buchsbaum.  I often wish I wasn't such a stupid farm animal, unable to grasp the subtleties of how shooting dead an unarmed medic tending to the wounded is for her own good.

Goyim, I  . . .  "Jared Kushner 'annoyed' with Kuwait's Palestine resolution at UN".

TDS:  "Is There Really Any Doubt That Trump Is Collaborating With Russia?" (Kuns) and "We’ve Got a Problem. A Big Problem." (Marshall)!  Lunatics inspired, if you can believe it, by Trump's wise suggestion that Russia be brought back into the G-7.

Now it gets interesting:  "Senate Investigators May Have Found a Missing Piece in the Russia Probe" (Bertrand). Unified Conspiracy Theory:  "Weldon on Able Danger".  Weldon was removed from Washington as he wouldn't stop noticing the US government was monitoring Atta well before Atta was supposed to be in the US, not to mention that Atta appeared to be working for the US military.

"Still Waiting for Evidence of a Russian Hack" (McGovern). The importance of the WikiLeaks disclosure of the Marble Framework tool.

"Justin Trudeau Was Accused Of "Groping" A Reporter At A Music Festival In 2000" (Daro).  Taken from a newspaper article published in 2000, right after the alleged incident, so it is difficult to claim it is just taking advantage of Trudeau's current position (and the ironies of his 'feminist' virtue signaling).  It is difficult not to notice that 'listen to the women' is only selectively applied.

"Syria - Is The ISIS Attack On Abu Kamal Part Of A U.S. Plan?" (Moon).  Or, as Americans say, "Thank you merchant Bibi, you are my greatest ally.".

Half of a murder-suicide

"Four For Friday - She Didn't Go" (CDaN).  Asia Argento, fearless warrior in the Great Shiksa Pogrom of 2017-18, was the real target, and it was supposed to end up as a 'murder-suicide' with the boyfriend, but somehow it all went sideways and the only one dead was Bourdain, whose death is a message.  This makes more sense than the Official Story.

You can hang yourself this way - it's how Barry did it after he murdered Honey - but it is difficult as you have a way out by pushing your body up using your legs (plus you can pull up on the door handle), and instinct causes you to save yourself:  "The Eerie Similarities Between the Deaths of Kate Spade, Alexander McQueen and L’Wren Scott" (Vigilant Citizen).

Added!:  "CNN's Anthony Bourdain dead at 61".  Stated to be suicide. Quite woke (but he fell for the latest false-flag 'chemical attack' in Syria).

"Soros Veteran And Former CIO Quits Firm" (Durden).  "Associate Of Joseph Mifsud, Described By EU Parliament As "Reliable Ally" To George Soros" (Whittle).  "In Heated Interview, Putin Says "Ask The State Department About Soros"" (Durden) (Putin actually mentions the Soros currency speculation!).

"The Maltese Phantom of Russiagate" (Lee Smith, who seems to have some kind of monopoly on reporting on this issue) - rebutting the nonsense that Mifsud is some kind of Russian spy, rather than the western intelligence asset he obviously is (and why oh why can the mighty US IC and all its allies not find him?):
"According to Roh and Pastor’s book, however, he’s part of an international clique that identifies itself with the values and causes represented by the Clintons and their various enterprises.

Mifsud, they write, “was always a ‘Clintonist.’”

Mifsud said something similar in the interview he gave to the Italian newspaper La Repubblica shortly before he went into hiding. “The only foundation I am a member of,” he said, is “the Clinton Foundation.”

It’s not clear what Mifsud may have been meant by that — there is no membership, as such, in the Clinton Foundation — except perhaps to identify himself as a part of liberal, internationalist circles, like his friend and Link Campus colleague Gianni Pittella.

Pittella made a splash at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, where he took a very vocal position against Donald Trump. “I have taken the unprecedented step of endorsing and campaigning for Hillary Clinton because the risk of Donald Trump is too high,” Pittella told Time magazine. “I believe it is in the interest of the European Union and Italy to have Hillary Clinton in office. A Trump victory could be a disaster for the relationship between the U.S.A. and Italy.”

Mifsud’s worldview, along with his array of European and American contacts, and the lack of response by those high-level figures to the spy charge, have led Roh to conclude that if Mifsud is working for any intelligence agency, it was Western rather than Russian.  “I call him an asset, a person who cooperates in an operation, but is not a member of the team.”"

Ditching

"The Political Significance of LSD" (Zutshi).  Part of the creepy - Peter-Thiel-level creepy - nootropic supremacism led by Silicon Valley.  Better, longer, smarter living through chemistry.  Mary Pinchot Meyer thought she was going to 'turn on' JFK and thus start the era of world peace, and both she and JFK ended up dead.

"Is Alexander Dugin an Undercover Queer Theorist?" (Gelfer).  This might be satire but the implication is that Dugin is important enough as a Big Thinker to obsess about.

"Is Putin really ready to “ditch” Iran?" (The Saker).  Part of the 'Putin ditching' series of the (((media))), famously over-played recently regarding the alleged ditching of Assad by Putin (it seems that every week for years the (((media))) has breathlessly had a new story on this 'ditching'), and part of the standard Khazar play to fool the goyim into allowing something to happen because it is inevitable, or can't be helped as it has already happened.

"Slavoj Zizek: The secret of how to defeat Trump lies in Europe":
". . . in his populist version of class warfare, Trump’s goal is (also) to protect the American working class (and are metal workers not one of the emblematic figures of the traditional working class?) from “unfair” European competition, and thereby save American jobs. This is why all the protests of public officials and economists in EU, Canada and Mexico, as well as the countermeasures proposed by them, miss the target: they follow the WTO logic of free international trade, while only a new Left addressing the concerns of all those left behind can really counter Trump.

At some deep and often obfuscated level, the US neocons perceive the European Union as the enemy. This perception, kept under control in the public political discourse, explodes in its underground obscene double, the extreme Right Christian fundamentalist political vision with its obsessive fear of the new world order (with conspiracy theories such as how Obama is in secret collusion with the United Nations, international forces will intervene in the US and put all true American patriots in concentration camps etc.) 
Conflicting ideas

One way to resolve this dilemma is the hardline Christian fundamentalist one, articulated in the works of Tim laHaye et consortes: to unambiguously subordinate the second opposition to the first one. The title of one of la Haye’s novels points in this direction: ‘The Europa Conspiracy.’ So, the true enemies of the US are not Muslim terrorists, they are merely puppets secretly manipulated by the European secularists, the true forces of the anti-Christ, who want to weaken the US and establish a new world order under the domination of the United Nations. And, in a way, they are right in this perception: Europe is not just another geopolitical power bloc, but a global vision which is ultimately incompatible with nation-states.

This brings us back to Trump and Putin: one openly supported Brexit, and the other is believed in the West to have desired it. Both figures belong to the conservative-nationalist line of “America/Russia first,” which should perceive a united Europe as its biggest enemy (even if Putin publicly says the opposite and many Russians resent their exclusion from the European project, rather than the notion itself) – and they are both right.

The problem for Europe is how to remain faithful to its emancipatory legacy, which is now threatened by the conservative-populist onslaught? In his ‘Notes Towards a Definition of Culture,’ the great conservative T.S. Eliot remarked that there are moments when the only choice is the one between heresy and non-belief, when the only way to keep a religion alive is to perform a sectarian split from its main corpse. This is what has to be done today: the only way to really defeat Trump and to redeem what is worth saving in liberal democracy is to perform a sectarian split from liberal democracy’s main corpse."
Bizarrely smart from an unexpected source:  "America’s allies should respond to steel tariffs with targeted sanctions on the Trump Organization" (Yglesias).  People are already bribing Trump, with great success, by indirectly assisting/enriching his companies (not to mention the Schlomo-schlepped bags of shekels), so a quiet indication that things might not go so well for his businesses in various places would go a long way to calming his protectionist enthusiasms.

"Report: Cambridge Analytica Director Had Post-Election Visit With Assange" (Shuham).  "Cambridge Analytica director 'met Assange to discuss US election' ".  There's quite the anti-Assange push going on from the usual suspects.  This is getting close to as parody of peak TDS.

There's an election in Ontario today, probably very important, as we could either go forwards very quickly, taking care of some obvious things that should have been done years ago, or regress even more quickly.  We're still being consistently told that the drug dealer is going to win.

Death squads

"The Salvador Option: the US is Once Again Supporting Death Squads in Central America" (Wilkins).  The Americans complain about emigration pressures caused by the violence in Central America, violence which is fostered by the American government.  See also Honduras and Nicaragua, and this:  "NATO Comes to South America: Colombia Becomes Alliance’s Official Partner" (Gorka).

"India, Iran and the Strategic Implications of the US Pull Out from the Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA)" (Seethi):
"In early May 2013, India and Iran decided to step up their bilateral relations in all aspects including connectivity for which New Delhi would be assisting in the upgradation of the strategically crucial Chabahar port located in south eastern part of Iran (Seethi 2015). During a meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Iran, the two sides agreed to work on a trilateral transit agreement involving India, Iran and Afghanistan (India, Ministry of External Affairs 2013). Tehran saw this important not only for Iran and Afghanistan, but for the entire Central Asia. The two countries reiterated the significance of greater connectivity between Russia, Central and South Asia through the International North South Transport Corridor (INSTC). India viewed this project as part of reinforcing its ‘Connect Central Asia’ and ‘Look West’ policy. Given India’s sensitive relations with Pakistan, New Delhi saw the Chabahar port as an alternative route not only to Afghanistan, but also to resource-rich Central Asia. It may also be noted that India was keen to open alternative routes to Afghanistan ever since China took over Pakistan’s Gwadar Port (a warm-water, deep-sea port located in the Arabian Sea at Gwadar in Baluchistan province), which is about 76 km from the Chabahar port. The Chabahar port, surrounded by a free trade zone, is vital particularly since Islamabad does not permit transit facility from India to Afghanistan (Seethi 2015). 

With the US pull out, India’s growing interest in Afghanistan and Central Asia is now at risk. The Chabahar port is set to give a transport corridor to Afghanistan, providing the landlocked country a new facility to have a deepened Indian Ocean trade. Now that a fresh US sanctions are round the corner, the agencies involved in the port project are apprehensive about the US retaliation for engaging Iran. Though the Modi Government is claiming that it still sustains ‘strategic autonomy,’ it remains to be seen if it can ignore the strategic imperatives of the emerging Indo-Pacific collaboration where both New Delhi and Washington have vital stakes."
"The Weekly Standard Finally Finds a Hill Worth Dying On: Defending George Soros Against His Own Admitted Work for Nazis in Confiscating Jewish Property" (Ace of Spades HQ).  Using George's own public statements against him is causing some consternation.  It is interesting that Soros' defenders are the Khazars for whom, one might think, Soros' actions are the worst crime imaginable.

"US Regime Change and its Armies of "Garbage"" (Cartalucci). Color revolutionaries are, as you might expect, a motley crew.

"US, UK and France 'Inflicted Worst Destruction in Decades on Raqqa'" (Cockburn):
"“On the ground in Raqqa we witnessed a level of destruction comparable to anything we have seen in decades of covering the impact of wars,” says Donatella Rovera, a senior crisis response adviser at Amnesty. She says that the coalition’s claim that it had conducted a precision bombing campaign that caused few civilian casualties does not stand up to scrutiny. She quotes a senior US military officer as saying that “more artillery shells were launched into Raqqa than anywhere since the end of the Vietnam war”.

The air and artillery strikes by the US and its allies killed many civilians – the number is unknown because so many bodies are buried under the ruins – during the four-month-long siege, beginning on 6 June and ending on 17 October last year according to the report. Citing the testimony of survivors, it contradicts assertions by the US-led coalition that it took care to avoid targeting buildings where civilians might be present. Witnesses say that again and again their houses were destroyed although there were no Isis fighters in them or nearby."
Not at all a surprise from these monsters, but it is a bit of a shock still that these same people and the (((media))) continue to advertise their various Wars For The Jews on the pretense that they are concerned about human rights and lives, and always act from the purest motives.

"Israeli Owned Geothermal Company that Possibly Fracked Hawaii Volcano to Life has 80 of these Plants" (Bacon).  The (((media))) can't mention the fracking-earthquake connection, not to mention who might be behind this all over the world as they literally could not care less what happens to the farm animal victims.  This is the same mindset, for the same reasons, as the oxy peddlers at Purdue.

Behind his paywall, Marshall has been wondering why the wife of George Papadopoulis - a wife currently lobbying for some kind of Trump pardon for her husband (and, to be fair, he seems to have been set up rather badly by the Clintonista conspirators and Mueller) - who purports to be Italian, and - Small World Warning! - used to work for Mifsud (!!!), appears to be Russian.

"Proportional representation is only great for unelectable 'professors,' Jean Chretien says".  You'd think the example of Europe would be a cautionary tale of what never to do.  With all the numerous advantages of first-past-the-post, Chretien hits on perhaps the most important.  Of course, the counter-argument is that it discriminates against unlikeable sociopathic nerds in favor of the Chad glad handlers..

"Palestine is not occupied, it is colonised" (Baroud).  It is funny how many terms the Khazars have invented to place in their (((media))), and attempt to place into international law, to describe their murder and land theft.

"Sacrificing Gaza: The Great March of Zionist Hypocrisy" (Kavanagh).  "‘Let’s talk about art’– NPR promotes Israeli claims about Gaza massacre and leaves out medic’s killing" (Weiss). "The unwarranted presumption of Israeli soldier innocence in the killing of Palestinian medic Razan al-Najjar" (Ofir).  Tweet (Ayman Mohyeldin).  Every day, more and more people are woke, and have access to more and more information, yet the (((media))) continues to lie following the same patterns, and in fact is reacting to the horrible facts by increasing the audacity of the lying.  Something has to give sometime.
