Bringing an electric bone saw to a fist fight

"Israel lobbyists smear Khashoggi as terrorist so as to maintain Saudi alliance — and plans for Iran war" (Weiss).  This is deceptive - as you would expect - as while there is some Khazar talk of Khashoggi's connections to the MB, Hamas, the Palestinians and even bin Laden, almost the entire (((media))) is on fire to promote the removal of MbS. My theory, that the Khazars have decided that MbS is not capable of moving their plans ahead, and needs replacement (it seems his younger brother is the preferred choice), remains intact.

Note that Graham, and Schiff (!), and even mass shekel recipient Corker (!!) remain on the MbS-out bandwagon even after the Saudi (ridiculous) limited hangout:  "Saudis confirm Khashoggi's death, claim he died in 'fist fight'" (Toosi/Griffiths).

Remember when President Jared got into trouble with his security clearance over divulging American intel info - and thus sources and methods of American spying -  on which prominent Saudis MbS needed to torture and shake down to maintain his control?  Apparently no one else remembers either!

The Khazars have amassed a tank army to enter Gaza and start that kind of slaughtering again, and are waiting for this issue to be hammered out before proceeding.

Khashoggi and first principles

"The reduction of Israel’s reliance on Bin Salman".

This whole dismemberment thing could have, and normally should have, gone away in a couple days ('journalists' just stop writing and talking about it, and poof! it's gone), yet it continues to linger, and perhaps even intensify (this is nuts, something that would have been incomprehensible a few months ago!:  "Lindsey Graham Wants to ‘Sanction the Hell Out of Saudi Arabia’ Until Crown Prince Is Ousted").

We need to go back to first principles.  The ruinous series of Wars For The Jews has had the cumulative effect of greatly strengthening the position of Iran as a power broker.  The Likudniks, needing an enemy, had already decided to appoint Iran to the role (though, as I keep saying, it is not really suited to the role of Israeli enemy). That's why Trump, beshekeled by Sheldon, pulled out of the nuclear deal, and is perilously risking American hegemony with the sanctions bluff.  The short-term reason for focusing on Iran is Iran's ally Hezbollah, and the Khazar khleptomaniac need to steal land in Lebanon.  The theory, which is largely not true due to the fact that Hezbollah is such a formidable organization by itself, is that weakening Iran weakens the threat from Hezbollah, and will make an Israeli land-theft war on Lebanon possible.

The Saudis have always had this weird two-faced position on the Muslim world.  On the one hand, there is this idea that the Saudi Royals are guardians of world-wide Islam (sometimes, at its most liberal, encompassing Shi'ism).  On the other hand, the princelings are paranoid about their status as unentitled grifters, and won't stick their necks out too far, lest they be chopped off. Hence, the great ambivalence over the Palestinian issue, with traditionally lots of rhetorical support, and fuck all in actual help.  With MbS, the Khazars for the first time got a guy who is unambiguously anti-Shi'ite, extremely reckless, and at the same time willing to publicly support President Jared's ethnic cleansing plans for the Palestinians.  The Khazars saw this as nothing short of a miracle, with all their plans backed up at once.

Yet, something happened.  The senile King (or, we have to assume, the princeling consensus that runs things) stepped in and publicly embarrassed MbS by pulling Saudi support for the plans of President Jared.  A number of weeks later Khashoggi, a well-known defender of the Palestinian cause, is dismembered while still alive, a pure power move by MbS, pour encourager les autres.  The American (((media))) won't shut up about it (I have to note that Khashoggi was the property of The Richest Man In the World, and MbS probably wasn't fully cognizant of the Washington nuances), and characters like Elliott Abrams and Lindsay Graham say surprising things.  Something is up.

What's up is that the Khazars have identified MbS as incapable of maintaining their plans for the Middle East.  He talks a good game, but he can't deliver, and his recklessness, coupled with a simply amazing series of horrible decisions, not to mention a technical lack of ability to govern (this hasn't been mentioned, but it is important and instructive, and turns directly on Iranian relations with the rest of the Middle East:  "Oil output from Saudi, Kuwait shared zone on hold as ties sour"), means that he could be out in a hurry, with who knows what to replace him, possibly leaving Israel in the lurch, having put all its eggs in the MbS basket.  If the Saudis go all the Gulf States would go, leaving Egypt as the only tenuous friend.

I assume the Khazars have somebody in mind to replace MbS, and these machinations are the part we're not seeing.  MbS is, typically, panicking in a reckless but clumsy way ('car accident').  I should also note that the main reason for the falling out of Khashoggi with the Saudi government was his support for the Muslim Brotherhood, which is also the principle reason for the Saudi attack on Qatar (and also explains the position of the MB-allied Turkish government), the princelings having decided that the main threat to their hold on power is a kind of MB populism.

Monkey Business

"Was Gary Hart Set Up?" (Fallows):
"Atwater had the strength to talk for only five minutes. “It wasn’t a ‘conversation,’ ” Strother said when I spoke with him recently. “There weren’t any pleasantries. It was like he was working down a checklist, and he had something he had to tell me before he died.”

What he wanted to say, according to Strother, was that the episode that had triggered Hart’s withdrawal from the race, which became known as the Monkey Business affair, had been not bad luck but a trap. The sequence of events was confusing at the time and is widely misremembered now. But in brief:

In late March 1987, Hart spent a weekend on a Miami-based yacht called Monkey Business. Two young women joined the boat when it sailed to Bimini. While the boat was docked there, one of the women took a picture of Hart sitting on the pier, with the other, Donna Rice, in his lap. A month after this trip, in early May, the man who had originally invited Hart onto the boat brought the same two women to Washington. The Miami Herald had received a tip about the upcoming visit and was staking out the front of Hart’s house. (A famous profile of Hart by E. J. Dionne in The New York Times Magazine, in which Hart invited the press to “follow me around,” came out after this stakeout—not before, contrary to common belief.) A Herald reporter saw Rice and Hart going into the house through the front door and, not realizing that there was a back door, assumed—when he didn’t see her again—that she had spent the night.

Amid the resulting flap about Hart’s “character” and honesty, he quickly suspended his campaign (within a week), which effectively ended it. Several weeks later came the part of the episode now best remembered: the photo of Hart and Rice together in Bimini, on the cover of the National Enquirer.
. . .
Aware that this might be one of their final conversations, Hart asked Strother to think about the high points of the campaign, and its lows. Hart knew that Strother had been friends with Billy Broadhurst, the man who had taken Hart on the fateful Monkey Business cruise. According to Strother and others involved with the Hart campaign, Broadhurst was from that familiar political category, the campaign groupie and aspiring insider. Broadhurst kept trying to ingratiate himself with Hart, and kept being rebuffed. He was also a high-living, high-spending fixer and lobbyist with frequent money problems.

Strother talked with Hart this spring; Broadhurst had died about a year earlier. In retrospect, Hart asked, what did Strother make of the whole imbroglio?

“Ray said, ‘Why do you ask?’ ” Hart told me, when I called to talk with him about the episode. “And I said there are a whole list of ‘coincidences’ that had been on my mind for 30 years, and that could lead a reasonable person to think none of it happened by accident.

“Ray replied, ‘It’s because you were set up. I know you were set up.’

“I asked him how he could be so certain,” Hart told me. Strother then recounted his long-ago talk with Atwater, and Atwater’s claim that the whole Monkey Business weekend had occurred at his direction. According to Hart, that plan would have involved: contriving an invitation from Broadhurst for Hart to come on a boat ride, when Hart intended to be working on a speech. Ensuring that young women would be invited aboard. Arranging for the Broadhurst boat Hart thought he would be boarding, with some unmemorable name, to be unavailable—so that the group would have to switch to another boat, Monkey Business. Persuading Broadhurst to “forget” to check in with customs clearance at Bimini before closing time, so that the boat “unexpectedly” had to stay overnight there. And, according to Hart, organizing an opportunistic photo-grab.

“There were a lot of people on the dock, people getting off their boats and wandering up and down on the wharf,” Hart told me. “While I was waiting for Broadhurst and whatever he was working out with the customs people, I sat on this little piling on the pier.” Hart said that Donna Rice’s friend and companion on the boat, Lynn Armandt, was standing a short distance away. “Miss Armandt made a gesture to Miss Rice, and she immediately came over and sat on my lap. Miss Armandt took the picture. The whole thing took less than five seconds, with lots of other people around. It was clearly staged, but it was used after the fact to prove that some intimacy existed.”"

""Who needs Saudi Arabia?" Washpost editorial" (Lang).  Trump touts military deals that are largely fictitious, and the Saudis are totally invested in American military production (meaning they have no choice but to continue to buy American), so even the most cynical arguments about the US sticking by MbS are nonsense, a combination of bribes (riyals and shekels) and force of habit.  It is no longer 1973.

Princelessness

"Khashoggi Picked the Wrong Prince" (Angry Arab):
"I also should say that for many years he continued, and he became a spokesperson for Prince Turki when he became ambassador in Washington, DC. And he got to be close to Western journalists because he was the man to go to. When they wanted to travel to Saudi Arabia, they wanted to interview this prince, that king, the crown prince, he was the fixer for them in that regard and that’s how they got to know him. And then, he attached himself to another prince, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, who got in trouble with the new crown prince. That’s where his troubles started. He did not bet on democracy in Saudi Arabia, he bet on the wrong princes.

There princes he bet on fell out of favor, Prince Turki, as well as Prince Al-Waleed, later who wound up in Ritz in Riyadh last year. And for that reason, he had no prince. According to his own testimony, in an article that was written by David Ignatius who was close to him, he tried to be an advisor to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, but he wouldn’t take him as an advisor because he always was suspicious about his Islamist past, the fact that he was a member and later close to the Muslim Brotherhood. So, he became – spoke the language of democracy upon leaving the country.

The reason why they wanted to go after him, it had nothing do with his courage or anything like that. It’s because he was so central in the ruling media and political establishment, that his departure from the kingdom was not seen as dissent. He was not a dissenter, he was not a dissident. He never saw himself as one, or even an opposition figure. He spoke of himself as somebody who believed that the crown prince was doing the right thing but going about it the wrong way. I basically believe that he was seen by the government as a defector, that one of their own left the country and joined the enemies rank. And he was also having an audience with Western audiences from Washington DC, from one of the major mainstream newspapers. That was highly embarrassing to the ruling family."
and:
". . . the thing is that the government of Saudi Arabia has changed in the last two years in a major way. For much of the history, since 1953 and the death of the founder, Saudi Arabia, even though it’s a despotic monarchy, is ruled by a collective leadership like the Politburo of the former Soviet Union. You have the royal family, and then you have the senior princes. Those are the ones with whom the king would consult on every matter. For that reason, as sinister and reactionary as Saudi policy was all these decades, but it was a result of a consensus within the royal family. For that, it exhibited signs of caution, reservation and deception always, because they were doing something in secrecy, and in public they were saying something entirely opposite.

Under the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, government has changed. There is no collective leadership. For the first time in the history of the monarchy, we have a sole, undisputed despot who does not allow not only dissent, but advisers. Everybody has to be yes-men, and of course all of them are men, around him. He subordinated all the princes, he ended all the factions representing different princes. So previously, no matter who was king, Jamal Khashoggi was able to move between the princes, to have one patron one day, another patron of another day. That always worked because they were part of the senior princes’ set-up.

Now, there is no set-up like that. All the other princes, even his own half-brother, is under house arrest. This guy doesn’t want to allow anybody to share government, he makes all the decisions. And in fact, we can say that was his death knell. Maybe this is why this is going to change the course of his history. I mean, he will most likely stay in power, but I would argue that his best days are behind him. He will never be as powerful as he has been for the last two years, because now he knows he cannot trust his own instincts. When he ruled entirely based on his instincts, he presumably made the decision to get rid of this guy. He did not think the repercussions were going to be big enough.

And I still argue he’s going to get away with it, and there’s not going to be a price to pay by Western countries, by Turkey or by the United States. I feel they are working on a cover-up story as we speak. But because he had no advisers, he made these decisions. And he is not somebody who is knowledgeable about the world. He does not know about foreign policy as much, and he calculated wrongly. And he is now in very awkward, embarrassing positions, and for that, he will be weaker than ever. And most likely, he will be compelled to bring in other princes, not to share power but at least to be around him when he contemplates making decisions."
"The latest (but likely not last) social media purge".  There aren't any 'norms', and the idea that there are things they wouldn't do for moral or even practical business reasons is simply incorrect.  We have to get over it and realize that it is open season on everybody not in the 0.1%, or anybody who might pose the tiniest possible threat to the status of the 0.1%.

Pow Wow Chow

"Khashoggi Mystery: Rogue Killers or Rogue Royals?" (Korybko)  The ultimate 'rogue' story would be that the Khashoggi assassination was an attempt by the political enemies of MbS to force him out.  It is not true as, if it were true, MbS would have naturally used this excuse immediately.  In fact, efforts by the Americans to provide MbS with a 'rogue' story are sputtering - requiring sending Pompeo to Riyadh to provide a push to MbS - because, it appears, MbS is so full of himself he wants to take full credit for the attack, and doesn't want to even entertain the possibility that there could be rogue elements in Saudi Arabia damaging his status as the Chief Motherfucker In Charge.

"Dubious Apple Watch link to Jamal Khashoggi ‘killing’" (Greenhalgh).  The watch might be a little Turkish macabre embellishment.

"What Happened to the F-22s at Tyndall?" (Greenhalgh) (of course the entire F-35 fleet, both American and Israeli, is 'indisposed', leaving the Khazars with a temporary (?) case of the 'shorts' when it comes to killing people and stealing land):
"We are told that 33 of the 55 F-22s stationed at Tyndall AFB were evacuated to Ohio due to Hurricane Michael which trashed Tyndall AFB. Nothing has been said about the other 22 F-22s.

I am very suspicious about this and it is my strong suspicion that those 22 aircraft have in fact, been transferred to Israel rather than having been destroyed by the hurricane.

We all know that Russia supplied a significant number of S-300s systems to Syria recently, a move which really, really upset the Israelis as it means that their aircraft, with the possible exception of their small number of F-35s are now very vulnerable to being shot down should they enter Syrian airspace.

I am sure that the very moment those S-300s arrived in Syria, the Israelis were demanding the US supply them with weapons to counter this new threat and the obvious choice of weapon to counter S-300 would be the F-22 which might stand a chance due to it’s stealth characteristics.

So have the US secretly transferred 22 F-22s – two squadron’s worth, to Israel as a counter to the Syrian possession of S-300s batteries? The US taxpayer will pick up the bill of course, and they will doubtless be told that the plans were destroyed by Hurricane Michael as a convenient cover story."
"Why do Ukraine’s arms dumps keep exploding?" (Greenhalgh):
"Why is this happening? The answer is simple – to cover up the wholesale theft of arms from Ukraine, arms that later turn up in the hands of fake terror groups like ISIS. Ukraine blames Russia for these incidents of arson, but of course, they always blame Russia; truth is, the Ukrainians are fully complicit in this crime, it is just another aspect of the wholesale theft of Ukraine’s resources and wealth that has been going on for 30 years now, since the Soviet Union fell.

There is a more disturbing aspect to this case though, and it makes a mockery of the official tales of disarmament an destruction of nuclear weapons arsenals in the wake of the fall of  the Soviet Union. In the 1990s, Ukraine signed a nuclear non-proliferation treaty and voluntarily disarmed itself of nuclear weapons, as international inspection teams toured their weapons stockpiles and monitored the process of removing and shipping off for destruction, of the nuclear warheads.

All the big stuff, the hundred of kilotonnes and megatonne class weapons, the sort of thing you hurl at the enemy atop a long range ballistic missile, those were all disposed of under the watchful gaze of the inspectors and often, Western TV crews. However, the Ukraine also possessed huge numbers of far smaller, tactical class nukes, the sort of thing you would use on a battlefield and ideal for clandestine use.

Many of those Ukrainian mini nukes simply disappeared, most of them were squirrelled away in various depots around Ukraine, secretly kept for future use or, more likely, future highly profitable sale. These hidden, secret nukes were a tempting target for groups who might put a tactical nuke to good use, and inevitably, several were stolen. This is the likely source of the mini nukes that have been used covertly in the Middle East in recent years, such as the Baghdad marketplace bombing on Eid and multiple times in Syria, Damascus being hit more than once.

The destruction of the arms depots by fire is simply the thieves covering their tracks, destroying the evidence of their theft. On at least one occasion in the last couple of years, we believe, based on video footage of the explosion, that a Ukrainian arms dump was completely obliterated by the explosion of a mini nuke in the sub-10 kilotonne class, such an explosion is guaranteed to destroy the evidence of theft.

So ignore the ‘Russia did it’ narrative being pushed by the Ukrainians and the compliant Western media, the people who did it are criminals working for the international crime cabal that created ISIS, that overthrew the Ukrainian government on the Maidan four years ago, that installed Trump in the White House. These Ukrainian ammo dump explosions are an indicator that they are still preparing for further violence, why else would they need to steal weapons and ammunition in huge quantities?"

Broad Benefits

"Citizen journalists – the fighters on the frontline against Russia’s attacks" (Cadwalladr). Even by the standards of the Guardian, this is beyond awful.  It is like what is going on in Brazil - things are so fucked up, the only people who can save us are fascist strong men connected to the military.  In this case, 'citizen' journalism is getting your news directly from NATO.  The Guardian is so bad these days it reads like a parody.

"Britain On The Leash With The United States... But At Which End?" (Jatras):
"In sum, we are seeing a massive, coordinated hybrid campaign of psy-ops and political warfare conducted not by Russia but against Russia, concocted by the UK and its Deep State collaborators in the United States. But it’s not only aimed at Russia, it’s an attack on the United States by the government of a foreign country that’s supposed to be one of our closest allies, a country with which we share many venerable traditions of language, law, and culture.
But for far too long, largely for reasons of historical inertia and elite corruption, we’ve allowed that government to exercise undue influence on our global policies in a manner not conducive to our own national interests. Now that government, employing every foul deception that earned it the moniker Perfidious Albion, seeks to embroil us in a quarrel with the only country on the planet that can destroy us if things get out of control.
This must stop. A thorough reappraisal of our “special relationship” with the United Kingdom and exposure of its activities to the detriment of the US is imperative."

Hyperbole:  "Trump, Kavanaugh and the Path to Neoliberal Fascism" (Giroux).  Note how the natural consequences of various Clintonista wrongdoing which led directly to Trump's election (institutional crooked screwing over of Bernie, Clinton's lazy, feckless and stupid campaign decisions, Clinton's general ridiculousness as a candidate, superdelegates, etc) and the use of the usual rules which were established by Democrats for their own political gain, has led to 'neoliberal fascism'!  Note also the archetypal tell, the last refuge of scoundrels, the fall-back to 'anti-Semitism' (see this remarkably similar article, in particular, complaining about objections to obvious Soros wrongdoing as 'anti-Semitism':  "Tapping the 'hidden spring' of anti-Semitism in Orban's Hungary")!

Broken spearhead

The best thing I've read on the subject, putting the assassination in a wider context of a big battle of elites in various countries:  "The Killing Of Saudi Journalist Khashoggi Could Spell The End For Mohammad bin Salman" (Pieraccini):
"What happened to Khashoggi is the story not so much of a dissident as of a struggle within the highly complicated Zionist-Saudi-Neoconservative nexus that is intertwined with the struggle against the neoliberal component of US imperialism. It is a story that deserves to be fully explored to understand the behind-the-scenes struggles that afflict US politics, the hypocrisy of the media when it comes to the Saudi dictatorship, and the ambiguous role of Turkey.
Returning to Khashoggi, it was during the Obama presidency that the journalist played a primary role in encouraging important reforms in Saudi Arabia as being essential to the survival of the Kingdom. During this time, relations between Riyadh and Washington steadily worsened for many reasons, primarily in regard to diverging policies on Egypt and Syria as well as on human rights in Saudi Arabia.
Many in the Saudi royal family suspected that Obama was willing to use the Arab springs to get rid of the Al Saud family in Saudi Arabia. The relationship between Riyadh and Washington subsequently sunk to an all-time low. Khashoggi was the spearhead of this media and political strategy against Riyadh. An intimate friend of the royal family who ends up publicly criticizing them causes quite a stir, selling copies and drawing attention to what he writes.
Keep in mind that we are splitting the atom of the Saudi universe. But it should never be forgotten that we are talking about a regime that tortures and kills its fellow citizens as well foreigners. It is a regime that creates terrorism as a weapon used to further its own political goals. These are not people burdened by moral scruples.
Yet in spite of this, no country is monolithic in terms of those who hold the reigns of power, especially when it comes to foreign affairs. It is the competing views and internal struggles that determine the course of events, as with the case of Khashoggi's death.
During the Obama administration, the former Saudi intelligence man and intimate of the royals continued to work as a house organ linked to the US world of soft power (color revolutions, Arab Spring), the form of power that was particularly favored by the Obama administration as a new strategy to extend US imperialist domination following the disasters of Iraq and Afghanistan. The criticism of the Saudi royal family was constant, even though the journalist appreciated the role Riyadh played in the region, especially with regard to the aggression against Syria.
In the following years, with the rise to power of King Salman, and especially after the victory of Donald Trump, everything changed for the worse in the region and for the “dissident” journalist. Bin Salman became the strongman holding power in Saudi Arabia, triggering, with a nod from Trump, a near war with Qatar, especially over the role of Al Jazeera, which often hosted Khashoggi and was increasingly critical of bin Salman and his vision for the Kingdom’s future (Vision 2030).
During bin Salman’s campaign of repression, the King's nephew took the opportunity to attack all his opponents, with many people close to Khashoggi being arrested, tortured and killed. His old acquaintance in particular, Al-Waleed bin Talal, was arrested and tortured, much to the displeasure of the West, given that he was one of the most famous Saudis abroad, being involved with companies like Twitter. In a climax of repression, even the Lebanese prime minister, Saad Hariri, was kidnapped and spirited to Riyadh to be re-educated over a number of days. Khashoggi sensed the looming danger, and in 2017 escaped from Saudi Arabia to settle in the United States.
Khashoggi continued with his columns criticizing the Saudi regime, attacking its campaign in Yemen on Al Jazeera, and accusing bin Salman of being anything but a positive revolutionary for the Kingdom. Khashoggi’s criticism pointed to the lack of democracy as well as the sclerosis at the top in the Saudi kingdom, accusations that bin Salman chafed at, finally deciding to be rid of the journalist.
The events in Istanbul are the culmination of a grotesque situation whereby Donald Trump has granted a free hand to his two close allies in the region, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Analyzing the actions of these two countries over the last 24 months, the extent of Washington’s carte blanche has become clear."
Note that the bifurcation isn't over long-term goals, but over strategy, hard power  (e.g., Wars For The Jews, unilateral imposition of a deal on the Palestinians, Bandar Bush), versus soft power (negotiation and robust diplomacy, Prince Turki), though everybody agrees on the ultra-hard line against Iran.

Building the Official Story, which is going to be attempted detention gone bad, fitting the American concept of 'resisting arrest', and its sad but understandable consequences (like Eric Garner, the fault lies completely with the error in judgment made by the resister):  "US intelligence intercepts reportedly show Saudi crown prince ordered detention of journalist Khashoggi".

"End Arms Sales to Saudi Arabia until Fate of Dissident Journalist is Known: Human Rights Watch".  The Khazar hordes (Abrams, HRW) seem to have decided they can use this assassination to pressure the King to reverse his decision not to back up MbS's support for President Jared's extermination plans for the Palestinians.

The simultaneous release of all the Turkish forensic examination (a big deal, as it revealed that the Turks are bugging embassies!), and the physical release of the American missionary/spy, can't be a coincidence, and seems to be a Turkish play to get back into the good graces of the Americans (while assisting its allies Iran and Qatar), looking for American help in its attempts to steal both eastern and western parts of northern Syria, plans so far stymied by Putin.

Meanwhile, the adults continue to get to work:  "Multi-Polar Political Project Pushed Forward By Putin In India" (Luongo).  This is interesting as the Russia-India-Pakistan (!) -Iran (!!) stuff is being done through an absence of press coverage.  It's Ninja Putin, you don't even see him coming!

"Soyuz was sabotaged?" (Greenhalgh).

"Choices Made: From Zionist Settler Colonialism to Decolonization" (Halper).  I'm very nervous about basing this entire struggle on 'decolonialisation', which sounds like another Jewish/SJW/Khazar-controlled academia trick (like BDS), with the rug pulled out at the last minute based on some new sociological theory (Halper does make a passing reference to the essential ridiculousness of Khazar claims to the area).  "In the end, analysis matters.", but what happens when the thieves completely dominate the analysis?

That doesn't help us

"Khashoggi Burial Negotiations Commence - Saudis Will Cough Up Billions To Settle The Case" (Moon).

"Mohammed Bin Salman: The Character Behind the Caricatures" (Korybko).

"Turks Had Saudi Consulate Bugged With Audio: Khashoggi Death Chronology Details Leaked" (Durden).

"‘Sweep it under the rug’: Fears grow Trump won't confront Saudis over journalist's disappearance" (Toosi).

So Erdoğan and Trump are both using this as part of the usual grifting, probably both personally and on behalf of their respective military contractors.

Trump (part of The Clarification, the kind of standard operating procedure that other Presidents wouldn't say out loud):
"We’ll have to see what happens. A lot of work is being done on that, and we’re going to have to see what happens. I don’t like stopping massive amounts of money that’s being poured into our country on — I know they’re talking about different kinds of sanctions, but they’re spending $110 billion on military equipment and on things that create jobs, like jobs and others, for this country.

I don’t like the concept of stopping an investment of $110 billion into the United States. Because you know what they’re going to do? They’re going to take that money and spend it in Russia or China, or someplace else. So I think there are other ways. If it turns out to be as bad as it might be, there are certainly other ways of handling the situation.

But I will tell you, upfront, right now, and I’ll say it in front of senators: They’re spending $110 billion purchasing military equipment and other things. If we don’t sell it to them, they’ll say, “Well, thank you very much. We’ll buy it from Russia.” Or “Thank you very much. We’ll buy it from China.” That doesn’t help us — not when it comes to jobs and not when it comes to our companies losing out on that work.

But there are other things we can do. Let’s find out what the problem is first. Okay?"
It is amusing that some Clintonistas are criticizing Trump's approach, based on vague allegations of personal corruption, when Killary has been much more obviously personally bribed by the Saudis, and certainly would have squashed even the slightest attempts at reining in MbS.  We seem to be in the process of being set up for a story that the murder was an accidental act by some 'rogue' Saudi intelligence officials.  That favor, one that could be reconsidered at any time based on 'new evidence', can then be used as an inducement for return favors from MbS.

MbS has an obvious and well documented propensity to make rash, momentous, and stupid decisions, and at some point the Saudi royals will have to decide whether they can afford to keep him in charge.  Unfortunately, in the short term, there is still so much money sloshing around that just about anything can be covered with a pile of it, and this very action demonstrates a ruthlessness which will keep most people cowed.

Moderate, but doesn't smell right

"As Nikki Haley Resigns, Critics Forced to Clarify That “Pro-War, Pro-Imperialist” Sycophant for Trump Is No “Moderate”" (Queally).

"‘Something doesn’t smell right’: The curious timing of Nikki Haley’s exit" (Blake).

Some thought she was the anonymous 'senior administration official' who dissed Trump, but that doesn't make sense, given how Trump graciously treated her exit (he's not that good an actor).

Most likely:  "Israeli Government Encouraged Nikki Haley to Run for President in 2024" (Diversity Macht Frei).  This is ominous, as the Khazars seem to want to protect Haley as a viable future political stooge by extracting her and thus isolating her from the stench of whatever they shekel Trump to do in the next few months.  This is the Khazars playing the long game, as they won't be able to find any replacement who will be so willing to whore him- or herself out for shekels.  She has an irreplaceable combination of a complete lack of self-respect and an unwavering willingness, for the right price, to commit treason (although I think they are paying her more in current and future political support from the (((media))) than actual shekels).

"Turkish Officials Say Khashoggi Was Killed on Order of Saudi Leadership" (Kirkpatrick/Gall) (also):
"The security establishment concluded that Mr. Khashoggi’s killing was directed from the top because only the most senior Saudi leaders could order an operation of such scale and complexity, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to disclose confidential briefings.

Fifteen Saudi agents had arrived on two charter flights last Tuesday, the day Mr. Khashoggi disappeared, the official said.

All 15 left just a few hours later, and Turkey has now identified the roles that most or all of them held in the Saudi government or security services, the official said. One was an autopsy expert, presumably there to help dismember the body, the official said."
"How a Map of Palestine Drove the American Neocolonial Elite Mad" (Cole) (surely he means 'Khazar Neocolonial Elite').  The concentration camp guard has completely shed his skin, to become a 'fellow white person', who, of course, isn't obsessed with one issue:  "Goldberg, reinvented, asks Clinton zero questions about Israel" (Weiss).

"SWEIDA: A Bloody Massacre Barely Registered by Western Media as ISIS Slaughter Innocent Civilians in their Sleep" (Beeley).

"Future of Western Democracy Being Played Out in Brazil" (Escobar).

"India-Russia relations go way beyond defence deals" (Bhadrakumar).  Calling the American sanction bluff.

"International Team of Researchers Concerned Over US Efforts to Create Bio-Weapons" (Korzun).  "Scientists Raise Alarm Over U.S. Bio-Weapon Programs" (Moon).  "Russian Military: US Killed Dozens By Bioweapon Disguised As Drug Research" (Slavo).  Gilead (and Rumsfeld)!  "Gilead Sciences’s criminal drug testing: a cover for the Pentagon’s illegal arms testing?".  I still think it probable that somebody in Rumsfeld's circle was the showrunner/conspirator-in-chief behind 9/11

"The GRU close access operation against the OPCW in perspective" (Electrospaces.net).

"Omidyar’s Intercept Teams Up with War-Propaganda Firm Bellingcat" (Webb).  The Intercept seems to have completely skated on ratting out Reality Winner after she attempted to rely on their whistle blower protection, although I guess we'll never know which whistle blowers looked at this honey trap and decided to go elsewhere.

Tweet (Trita Parsi):
"Very strange... Iran fired missiles at ISIS in Syria. Killed several ISIS leaders - almost killed Al-Baghdadi. US complained (!!) saying Iran was reckless, cuz the strike was within 3 miles of US troops. But why was ISIS leader Baghdadi feeling so safe so close to US troops????"

Worst premise ever

"Kunstler: Civil War Two Looms As Deep State Circles The Wagons":
"It turns out that the Deep State is a small world.

Did you know that the lawyer sitting next to Dr. Ford in the Senate hearings, one Michael Bromwich, is also an attorney for Andrew McCabe, the former FBI Deputy Director fired for lying to investigators from his own agency and currently singing to a grand jury?

What a coincidence. Out of all the lawyers in the most lawyer-infested corner of the USA, she just happened to hook up with him.

It’s a matter of record that Dr. Ford traveled to Rehobeth Beach Delaware on July 26, where her Best Friend Forever and former room-mate, Monica McLean, lives, and that she spent the next four days there before sending a letter July 30 to Senator Diane Feinstein that kicked off the “sexual assault” circus. Did you know that Monica McClean was a retired FBI special agent, and that she worked in the US Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York under Preet Bharara, who had earlier worked for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer?

Could Dr. Ford have spent those four days in July helping Christine Blasey Ford compose her letter to Mrs. Feinstein? Did you know that Monica McClean’s lawyer, one David Laufman is a former DOJ top lawyer who assisted former FBI counter-intel chief Peter Strozk on both the Clinton and Russia investigations before resigning in February this year — in fact, he sat in on the notorious “unsworn” interview with Hillary in 2016. Wow! What a really small swamp Washington is!

Did you know that Ms. Leland Keyser, Dr. Ford’s previous BFF from back in the Holton Arms prep school, told the final round of FBI investigators in the Kavanaugh hearing last week — as reported by the The Wall Street Journal — that she “felt pressured” by Monica McLean and her representatives to change her story — that she knew nothing about the alleged sexual assault, or the alleged party where it allegedly happened, or that she ever knew Mr. Kavanaugh. I think that’s called suborning perjury."
The GOP theory that something bad happened but alcohol, time, and therapy washing caused her to misidentify the actual perp, is quite plausible, and forms the basis of innumerable alibi defenses raising the issue of reasonable doubt in criminal cases.  Of course, this isn't a criminal prosecution, and the standards are different (no prosecutor would have, or should have, taken on this as a criminal case, based on the sorry state of the evidence, and I say this as somebody who believes her), but the Clintonistas didn't even bother to hide the creaky mechanisms of the IC/Deep State in mounting this PR operation.  See also:  "Flyers Blaming Jews for Kavanaugh Allegations Found on UC Davis" (Bandler).

"'They all take Saudi money': Suspected murder of WaPo columnist by Saudi Arabia ignored by UK press".  On the other hand:  "Where is Jamal Khashoggi?" (Elliott Abrams!).  When MbS was unable to push through President Jared's ethnic cleansing plan for the Palestinians, you have to wonder if he lost his utility for the Zionists, who perhaps have another princeling in mind to run the Saudi show.

"Investigative Journalist Probing EU Corruption Found Brutally Raped And Murdered" (Durden).

"Google is Totally Not Politically Biased, And You Can Always Trust Them to Run the World Fairly" (Anglin).

"Few Admiring Words for “Crypto-Socialist” Singapore" (Vltchek).  "Singapore court convicts activist, politician over Facebook posts".  A lot of people think Singapore could still succeed with all the good things it accomplishes while laying off the Orwellian shit just a tad.

"Yemen’s Descent Into Hell" (Menon).  The comments try to steer it into war for oil and other suspicious places (though it seems clear that MbZ wants to steal some territory out of this war).  The sad fact is that all these people are dying in Yemen just to make the odd PR point that Iran is somehow bad, based on a semi-fictitious connection between the Houthis and Iran.  That is basically the whole point of the war, to give the idea that MbS and MbZ have good reason to attack the always vaguely bad Iran (at some future point).  It is the worst premise for a war, ever.

"Is The U.S. Using Force To Sell Its LNG To The World?" (Berke).  One of the striking things about Trump is his unabashed use of the entire resources and reputation of the American state for the benefit of particular friends of his.  Of course, this kind of corruption goes on all the time, but Presidents usually try to hide it.  Here he is boasting about sticking his nose into NAFTA negotiations for a very, very specific purpose to benefit NFL owners to the extent of a surprisingly small amount of money:  "Trump says he fixed an issue the NFL had with Canada when Obama didn’t".

"Roosevelt Wanted to Spread Jews Thinly Throughout the World So They Could Cause as Little Harm as Possible" (Diversity Macht Frei).  Quite reasonable, with no 'denying':  "An Apology for Adolf Hitler" (Klingenberg).

"Aux Barricades Mes Enfants!" (Giraldi).  Almost all of these efforts are phony PR stunts by the usual suspects, but this march looks legit.

Red Tuesday / Elevator Screamers

"Makow, Shamir and Unz – Judeo-Zionist disinfo stooges" (Greenhalgh).  There's a theory that Khazars who seem to turn against the supremacist group are just setting up their credibility for when they need to lie about the really serious stuff.

"Macabre Saudi Disappearance Shatters Western Media’s Illusion of ‘Reforming’ Crown Prince" (Cunnigham).  "Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, lionized by U.S. pundits and politicians, is a — suspected murderer" (North).

"For Zionists, the ‘two state solution’ has always meant more ethnic cleansing" (Ofir).  Good stuff, in particular demonstrating the ratcheting - using each concession as the basis for future concessions, and rejecting vehemently any real give-and-take negotiation - typical of Khazar thieving.

Thanks to recent comments, I now know without doubt that Trutherism is a new Assholian religion, explaining why facts have absolutely no effect on it (and no, I am not going to waste any time and dignify this foolishness by listing what parts of the obvious nonsense are nonsense, no matter how much Khazar-like wailing you do!) .  What is striking is that it is an exact parallel - a mirror image - to the Holocaust religion of the Khazars.  The entire concept of controlled demolition  - literally laughable on the face of it - is a necessary and key part of the religion, as that's how you tie this attack on the 'completely innocent' Assholians to 'Lucky' Larry, the only guy with the inside access to allow the planting of the explosives.  The religion then proceeds outward from there.  The parallels to the Holocaust religion are amazing, as the anti-Semitism of Trutherism is exactly the kind of irrational Jew-hatred that is the key tenet of Khazar justification for Khazar evils.  In each case, the supremacists are:
  1. completely innocent, subject to terrible unprovoked attacks;
  2. attacks based on irrational and inexplicable hatred;
  3. the attackers are ingrates ('we've done so much for them');
  4. the leaders of the group - whether Holocaust or 9/11 - have absolutely nothing to do with the attack, and there was no conspiracy within the group;
  5. facts, and basic logic, have absolutely no effect on the beliefs of the adherents of the religion;
  6. the religion is used for absolving the group for any responsibility for past crimes, or future crimes, which continue unabated, and any criticism of the group's actions is completely explained away as irrational hatred of the supremacist group; and
  7. each of the two parallel religions plays off the other, justifying actions by each of the respective supremacist groups.
I tire of your religious kookery. Assholians ought to reflect on how similar they are to the Khazars.  Maybe that explains the 'special relationship', just a commonality of self-worship coupled with a hint of paranoia.

Remember when the Israelis arranged for that Russian plane to be shot down, and the Russians complained about it?  Just more anti-Semitism, goyim!:  "Downing of Russian Plane Exposed Putin's Court Jew" (Shumsky).  It doesn't take much for these religions to turn into parodies of themselves.

More innocence:  "Soros color revolution in Syria?" (Kadi).  'Red Tuesday' versus secular reforms, on point with Soros.  "Trump accused of anti-Semitism over claim Soros funds ‘elevator screamers’".

"The Claim That CCTV Shows the Salisbury Poisoning Suspects in the Vicinity of Mr Skripal’s House is Deeply Misleading" (Slane).  A comment by Denise on the theory they were steroid smugglers.  That may explain why the Russians were able to identify and find them so quickly - they were on the Russian police radar.

"NATO Coordinates Information War on Russia".  "Bikini Girls and Cyberwars" (Murray):
"What kind of mindset do you need to have, automatically to equate opposition to Monsanto and to chlorinated chicken with being an agent of the Kremlin? Why is The Times publishing this absolute rubbish? It says something both about the quite hysterical Russophobia gripping the media and political class, and about the desire to delegitimise environmental activism, as witness the jailing of the anti-fracking protestors (against which jailing 1,000 academics have now signed a letter of protest)."
It is funny that they pick things like promoting BLM, or activism against Monsanto, as an attack on 'western values'.

"The mask slips off: Appointing judges is just as political as electing them" (Willmann):
  1. Kavanaugh could and should have been blocked for his Panopticon shenanigans;
  2. Where's Rand Paul? (a reoccurring question);
  3. the law clerk scam (having been a law clerk is very good for your future income stream, so there is a small industry in selecting and providing them).
"Pakistani Poker: Playing Saudi Arabia Against China" (Dorsey).  Pakistan is playing a (dangerous?) game of chicken in order to try to improve its rather sorry bargaining position with the Chinese.

"Is India on Its Way Out of Poverty?" (it is telling they seem to be going out of their way not to measure it):
"GREG WILPERT: I just want to turn now to the other point that I mentioned in my introduction, which is that the government of Narendra Modi has introduced this health care plan which is supposed to deal with poverty as well, of course. But some say that it is a scam and that it will line the pockets of private health insurance companies. What is your take on this plan, and who would benefit from it?
JAYATI GHOSH: I would definitely go with the second version, that this is a scam that is going to benefit private healthcare companies, because it doesn’t actually provide healthcare. It provides healthcare insurance, which is a completely different thing. In other words, it’s kind of based on the U.S. model, which we all know is a broken model because the U.S. has very, very extensive healthcare, but it doesn’t give you good health outcomes. You get good health outcomes when you have public spending from publicly provided healthcare. It’s much more inclusive, it’s much more accessible, it’s much more affordable and it reduces inequalities in health.
What this is doing is to say that the government will allow individual families to take on a health insurance which will provide them up to 500,000 rupees totally for the entire family in the course of a year. Now, that’s the maximum you could get, but it would depend on whether you have a particular illness. And different illnesses, different kinds of treatment have a maximum amount. So if you have a cesarean section delivery, you get 20,000 rupees. If you have to have a bypass operation for your heart, you get maybe 80,000 rupees. It’s all defined in those terms. But these are just the rates that are nominally proposed. It doesn’t mean that individuals will necessarily get them, because it’s all being run by private insurance companies.
And so far, we know that the payment rate of these private insurance companies is pretty bad. It’s about 73 percent of the are actually settled. So there’s a lot of concern, and we also know that a private health insurance model will only work if you have really strong regulation and monitoring. In India, regulation and monitoring are non-existent. We just do them very, very badly. And so what we’re doing is exposing the poor to, I would say, a potentially disastrous system of relying on private healthcare, instead of expanding a public health system which could actually provide this much more cheaply, much more equitably and much more efficiently."

Switcheroos

Very woke:  "Syria: The New Terra Nullius" (Forte).  'We're here to help' carries with it the implication that the target state is incapable of fixing its problems - problems always caused by the Assholians, the Zionists, and their lackeys - due to the racial inferiority of the people running the target state (classic 'white man's burden').  This 'humanitarian' veneer of 'caring' is bullshit - we all know the politicians just want the shekels - but it is surprising how much of it is promoted by the virtue signalers, some of whom actually appear to believe it.  Gotta love the lists of academics who have permanently embarrassed themselves over this, some degrading themselves so far to sign Saudi propaganda letters!

"Kavanaugh Confirmation Deals Major Defeat to Subversive Anti-American Jews" (Rogers).  It's true (but officially invisible, as they are all 'fellow white people'), that all the major players - except for Avenatti, whose job seems to have been to undermine the case against Kavanaugh by pushing the allegations against him into reductio ad absurdum territory - were Le Merchant and La Merchantesse!  While Kavanaugh is indubitably an asshole - albeit an asshole with all the intellectual qualifications to sit on the Court, with the confirmation being no more than a relitigation of the results of the Presidential election - this entire production was really another example of anti-gentilism.

"Smear and Shekels" (Atzmon).  Another example - one of many - where what appears to be honest 'organic' criticism is actually part of an elaborate, and expensive, PR campaign.  We should be noticing that the over-the-top degree of invective directed at people like Atzmon is not natural.  He's just not enough of a sinner to be the new Hitler, so we have to ponder just what is going on.  Important!:
"This dynamic can be explained. My study of Jewish controlled opposition postulates that self-identified Jewish activists always attempt to dominate both poles of any debate that is relevant to Jewish interests. Once it was accepted that Palestine was becoming a ‘Jewish problem,’ a number of Jewish bodies became increasingly involved in steering the Palestinian solidarity movement. We then saw that they diluted the call for the Palestinian Right of Return and replaced it with watery notions that, de facto, legitimise Israel.
When it was evident that the Neocon school was, in practice, a Ziocon war machine, we saw bodies on the Jewish Left steer the anti-war call. When some British Jews realised that the Jewish campaign against Corbyn might backfire, they were astonishingly quick to form Jews for Jeremy that rapidly evolved into Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL). The battle over the next British PM became an internal Jewish debate. The rule is simple: every public dispute that is somehow relevant to Jewish interests will quickly become an exclusive internal Jewish debate."
"China’s Uyghur Problem — The Unmentioned Part" (Engdahl).  This is exceptionally good (note the reference to Fuller)!  The unmentioned/unmentionable abuse and manipulation of terrorism by the Turks and the Saudis. As with Rohingya, civilians end up paying the price for this.  The Saudis are involved in this for their usual reasons - terrorism is just a word for Saudi foreign relations! - but the Turks actually have irredentist goals for the Uyghurs, who they consider to be Turks.

Sailer continues his cynical examination of Barry:  "High School Never Ends (Part MCVII): NYT's "The Jocks Will Inherit the Earth"".

"The new Silk route on rails" (South).  Part of the staggering quantity of development that people not fighting Wars For The Jews can do.

"“World War III” and the American Switcheroo" (Richardson).  Pretty smart, but so are its comments.  Zuesse consistently gives me the creeps and I don't link to him.

I get uncharacteristically (?) furious about the 'truthers' as 9/11 was, at one point, a solvable conspiracy, with lots of weak points (the damage to the Pentagon, the work done by Hopsicker in Florida, Able Danger, etc), but has been completely ruined by free fall/controlled demolition/holograms/the Israelis did it, and equally ridiculous crap that immediately turns off anybody with an IQ over about 85.  I don't know if the 'truther' ringleaders are just stupid or paid off, but the CIA, whose job it is to manage US government conspiracies, must be thrilled with how they have managed to derail any proper investigation of the conspiracy.  Note also the sheer quantity of invective that pours out if you dare question any part of the 'truther' orthodoxy.  It has all the attributes of a religion, including being obvious nonsense (I'm still struck by the fact that I was assumed in the early days to be a 'truther' as I never explicitly countered their tall tales when they came out, when the reason I never mentioned them is that I literally thought them too comical to bother to mention!).

Cut into pieces

""Preplanned Murder": Turkey Says 15-Member Saudi Hit Team Murdered Journalist Inside Consulate" (Durden).

"Saudi Arabia's Weakness Is Showing After a Week of Bad Publicity" (Cockburn).

As to 9/11, I not-so-regretfully decline to participate in your circle jerk, which, of course, is designed further to obfuscate as only phony Official Counter-Official Stories are meant to do  The CIA may not be paying for this shit, but they really should.  As to not being informed, have you actually fucking read the archives of this blog?  I've been at the top level of this stuff before some of you pissants were born.  Just how well is your 'truth' working out for you?  Excuse my anger, but the 'truthers' have totally ruined any possible chance at arriving at actual truth, something in which I've invested quite a bit of angst.

Hoax

"Everything Is A Hoax" (Roberts) and its linked article:  "The Skripals Are an MI6 Hoax - 'Not Worthy of Ladies' Detective Novels' - Israeli Expert Demolishes UK Case".  The levels of ridiculousness of the story don't bother British intelligence.  They just want something that one of their controlled 'journalists' can fashion into a misleading front-page headline, to be seen by low-information commuters walking by the newsstand headed for the tube.  These layers of nonsense are intended to build a base of understanding - that the Russian government is recklessly evil - which will grease the skids for WWIII when the actual casus belli is created.  If you ignore a considerable amount of truther nonsense - which doesn't help his case or his credibility - Roberts is on the right track.

Wrongnotvoting

"Mattis Says Russian GRU Caught Red-Handed Hacking OPCW, Vows Cyber Support To Allies" (Durden).  If true, they parked a car near the office and listened in due to the essentially non-existent security of the OPCW.  It is like your neighbor stealing your wifi using your password (which is 'password'). Mattis should have been complaining that he pays these goofs all this money and they still can't manage even rudimentary security (it is possible they were instructed to have no security so Mattis could blame the Russians for breaking in).  Understandable spying, since the NATO-corrupted OPCW is clearly one of the sharp points being used in the PR battle against Russia.

"Bellingcat’s Very Obviously Fake Chepiga Photo" (Murray).

"MI6 Will Be So Proud: Urban & Harding Continue The Ludicrous Skripal Narrative" (Kurley).  Urban's curious, and unique, access.

Just four, and maybe obsolete versions, the classic Russian diplomatic caution, essentially a warning to Israel that more could be sent, if needed:  "S-300s and Other Military Hardware for Syria" (The Saker):
"During the past year the Israelis informed the Russians about their planned airstrikes in Syria via their deconfliction line only in 10% of the cases. For the remaining 90% they did not even bother, in spite of having promised to do so in their agreement with Russia. In sharp contrast, the Russians always informed the Israelis of their operations, as did the Americans towards the Russians. But the Israelis simply think that they don’t have to abide by any kind of norms of behavior. That kind of contempt for agreements (and for non-Jews in general) is typical of the Israeli mindset and it will eventually bring the downfall of the last openly racist regime on the planet."

"Tomgram: Ben Freeman, The Saudi Lobby Juggernaut".  Not losing sight of the fact that it is relatively wasted money, and the (((media))) has another master.  As stinktanks go, the Center for International Policy isn't obviously Evil.  Also:  "President Trump Exposes Truth of US Relationship with Saudi Arabia – Kevork Almassian Analysis".  Example of the messaging incompetence:  "Saudi Embassy Video Claims Al-Qaeda Likes Iran But Proves The Opposite" (Moon).

"Is Saudi Arabia the Middle East’s Next Failed State?" (Lazare).

Sometimes these big changes occur, the most interesting aspect of which is that nobody notices:  "BRIBERY (Patrick Armstrong)".  More to the point:  "Best government money can buy" (Giraldi).  Or, to summarize in one single word, shekels.  It is bad enough to be bribed by your own ruling elite, but what happens when your political leadership is bribed by the ruling elite of a foreign country?

"US cancels 1955 Treaty of Amity with Iran after UN court ruling".  "Iran Sanctions - U.S. Responds To Court Order By Canceling Treaty That Gave The Court Jurisdiction" (Moon).  It is actually shocking how much of the legal and institutional structure behind American hegemony is being suddenly, and irreversibly, dismantled, all for shekels.

"Wikileaks: To Weaken Iran, US Undermined Democratic Elements of Syrian Opposition to Empower Radical Groups" (Webb).

"France points finger at Iran over bomb plot, seizes assets" (The Rothschild Family).  Funny that nobody asks why France was hosting a conference on 'regime change'

"Imran Khan: “American Drone Strikes in Pakistan Must Stop. It’s Butchery, and the True Horror of It Is Hidden From the West”" (Drone Warfare).

"Netanyahu Bans Publication of Archive Materials on Deir Yassin Massacre".  Shut It Down.

"Russia Disrupted NATO’s Victory in Macedonia by Voter Apathy – We Are Waiting for New Sanctions" (Kornilov). Yet another example of wrongvoting, or rather in this case, wrongnotvoting.  There's a good reason why voting opportunities and systems are set up in such an elaborate manner to preclude the possibility of the people expressing an opinion on their oppression.

"Police Respond To Incident At Turkish Cleric Gulen's Poconos Compound" (Durden).  Whatever else you might say about Erdoğan, he's sure got some balls on him, testing the security of the CIA!

"Russia Says Space Station Hole Was Deliberate Sabotage After Formal Investigation" (Durden).  Shamir!

Tweet (alex thomson) (David Kelly?) (see various tweets assembled by niqnaq):
"A court in London was told today that MI5 agents are  authorised to commit serious crimes, on British soil, without informing prosecutors, under a secretive MI5 policy..."
"Jerusalem: Israel settlers occupy buildings near Al-Aqsa Mosque".  Typical Khazar ratcheting.  One day they'll just storm the place, and the Israeli government will claim they can't possibly be dislodged due to the danger of loss of human life.

"Canary Mission Blacklist Is Secretly Bankrolled By Major Jewish Federation".  Changing the subject?:  "Censored film names Adam Milstein as Canary Mission funder" (Winstanley/Abunimah).

"Trump's telephones in the Treaty Room" (Electrospaces).

"Robert Crowley; CIA Plots; Shastri Murder" (Aangirfan).

Related to everybody

Thread.  Typical Snopes low-energy 'debunking'.  If this was an American IC operation I'd expect her story to be a little more rigorous and complete, but who knows, maybe this is a very sophisticated job.  Her story is, after all, extremely credible to its target audience.

One thing we should draw from this is how incestuous the whole coastal elite/IC nexus really is.  Pick any random one of these types and you'll find all manner of connections, family, school, church, club.  Just as the neocons are a closely-related group of Khazars, the American IC is a closely-related group of WASPs.  Drunk Irishman Kavanaugh must have been an exciting novelty for the coeds.

Take their potatoes away

Very woke:  "“Why I read Counterpunch less often than I used to”" (Church).  Cockburn and Counterpunch both give me the willies.  The editors of Counterpunch seemed to have lost their minds completely on encountering an alleged Russian troll named 'Alice Donovan' (to be fair, this meta-meta-analysis is very good).

"At Israel’s behest, we are blocking the Teheran-Baghdad-Damascus highway."  The Assholians are moving the 'enemies' they are 'fighting', ISIS, to Afghanistan, to help with killing American soldiers there (the wages of shekels is death).  "Our enduring presence” - TTG":
". . . Erdogan has announced that his forces are preparing to secure the YPG-held territories in the al Raqqa, al Hasaka and Deir Ezzor governorates. How does that square with the US-planned enduring presence in those areas? Are we gearing up for a US-Turkey war for eastern Syria? My second point is that the Rojava Kurds are about to receive a right royal screwing. They pulled out of the talks with Damascus, probably under pressure of the US. That was a supremely boneheaded move by the Kurds. All they have to do is look at the fate of those who chose to take part in the reconciliation process. Former jihadis are being welcomed back to the fold. The Kurds would do at least that well if they stayed the course with the Damascus talks. Now they stand to be kicked in the teeth by the Turks and stabbed in the back by the US. Such promise. Such waste.Their choices exasperate me."
My favorite politician in the world:  "Malaysian prime minister calls Jews 'hook-nosed'".  "Israeli left lawmaker says Corbyn is an ‘anti-Semite,’ but Netanyahu isn’t a racist cause ‘you can’t be an Israeli PM and be racist’" (Ofir).  "Colonialist Settlers Flood Al-Khan Al-Ahmar With Sewage".

"More Holes Appear As Records Raise Questions About Ford's Double-Door Story" (Lipscomb).  Clever analysis (note that her infamous therapist seems to live behind the door!).  I believed her story as it was too sloppy to have been made up (a real lie wouldn't have been full of so many holes, and certainly wouldn't have been so wispy and tentative and confused), but I'm starting to have doubts.  I'm sure Kavanaugh is an asshole, but he is exactly what the Clintonistas should get when they rolled Bernie and ran such an awful candidate.  The Republicans seem to think that this is a midterm winner for them, that independent voters will see the Democrats as not plying by the rules.

Banana-less republic news.  "As Saudis Defend Against War Crimes Allegations, Saudi Airstrike in Yemen Kills Entire Family" (Abdulkareem).  "Washington Post Columnist Kidnapped in Turkey by Saudi’s".  "Report: Saudi Arabia Used Israeli Cyberweapons to Target Dissident in Canada".  "Saudi economist who criticised Aramco IPO charged with treason".

"President Putin’s Visit to India Will be a Moment of Reckoning for Both Countries" (Korybko).

"New Shiite-led Gov’t in Baghdad: How Iran won the Iraqi Elections & Frustrated Trump" (Cole).

"Irish are whiny as all fuck talking about their potatoes, but at least someone actually did take their potatoes away."  Is 'heavy drinker' code for 'Irish'?
