"Eric Bogosian’s Operation Nemesis"  Most topical given that Turkish imperialist supremacists are at it again.

"NATO Member Busted Massively Supporting ISIS … Now Declares War Against ISIS, But Instead Goes After Its Political Rival (Which Is the Most Effective Force FIGHTING ISIS)"

"Now the Turks Are All In" by Pat Buchanan:
"The speculation is that Erdogan is going to war for political reasons. When a Kurdish Party captured 13 percent of the vote in the June 7 elections, it broke Erdogan’s parliamentary majority, blocking his path to the presidential republic of his dreams and designs.
Critics believe he is provoking conflict with the Kurds before new elections, so he can cast himself as a fearless warrior against Arab terrorists and Kurdish traitors, discredit the small Kurdish party, and capture a sufficient majority to create his all-powerful presidency."

"ISIS - a Black Hole in the Heart of the Middle East: the Kurdish Factor (1/2)" by Patrick Bahzad

"Several dead in Turkey in attacks blamed on PKK group"

"Syrian Conflict: Al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front Abduct Leader of US-backed Rebels Dealing Blow to Plans to Build Moderate Opposition to Regime"  "Syria’s al-Qaeda captures US-Linked Free Syrian Army Commander, troops"  It is amusing how much trouble the Americans are having with their lie about 'moderate' Syrian rebels.

"*Jewish Daesh Settlers Burn West Bank Palesnian Baby Alive – AFP"

"6 stabbed in Jerusalem gay pride parade"  "Cops Knew Haredi Gay Pride Attacker Was Getting Out Of Prison, Failed To Watch Him During Parade"  "Rabbi Rules Against Renting Apartment to Lesbians"  Israel is one of the very few places in the world that has actually had an anti-gay riot:  "Israeli Anti-Gay Riots Worsen". Facts on the ground don't match the pinkwashing agenda.

"AP finds new ways to smear Palestinians over same-sex rights"

"In NY Times the Fate of One Israeli Soldier Trumps Massive Suffering in Gaza"  The word you are looking for is chutzpah.

"MSM avoids central Pollard question: Did Israel trade secrets to Soviets for emigres?"

"Pollard Soon Coming To A Theatre Near You"  I'd cast Jason Alexander and give him the Oscar immediately, as there will be no contest.  It is the universal story of a brave whistle blower crushed by anti-Semitism.

"Tracking the Lion Killers Back to the Old Oval Office" "Secret Memo Reveals US Was Aware Of Americans Killing Zimbabwe Lions; Only Concern Was Getting Caught"

Armenia:  "Russia Shoots Down US Stealth Coup"

"Hillary Lies Again"

"The NSA’s 9/11 Cover-Up: General Hayden Told a Lie, and It’s a Whopper"  It is also worth remembering that the two San Diego based 'terrorists' were living in an apartment owned by an FBI informant.  They also flew into and within the US despite being on a 'watch list'.  The entire Official Story is ludicrous.

About as blatant as it gets:  "Fed Reporter Pedro Da Costa Is Leaving The Wall Street Journal After Asking Yellen "Uncomfortable" Questions"  Note that the crime was asking questions that hadn't been pre-approved by Queen Yellen.

"So What Is the Real Deal with Iran?" by The Saker.  99% of everything written about the Iran deal, even writing in favor of peace, is based on the assumption that Iran had a nuclear arms program, an assumption based on ludicrously clumsy Israeli/MEK propaganda lies.

Gentile whisperers

Tweet (Violet Blue):
"Really curious as to why this gov encryption story was published and then pulled: Archive: "
Explaining why congenital assholes like Mike McConnell, Michael Chertoff and Michael Hayden are sounding relatively sane - hint: it's a trick: "The Red Herring of Digital Backdoors and Key Escrow Encryption":
"While many scientists and researchers ‒your author included‒ insist that key escrow is a ridiculous zombie idea, it’s important to recognize what’s being left out of the aforementioned discussion. Pay attention and you may detect a telltale whiff of public relations tradecraft in the air. Specifically, notice how the debate over back doors is almost entirely focused on back doors implemented through cryptographic technology.
This subtle misdirection shifts the conversation away from a different sort of back door currently being leveraged on a global scale. That would be back doors that are built upon zero-day exploits. An entire industry has emerged to cater to the growing demand for zero-day bugs and the tech monoliths have quietly provided assistance. For example it’s well documented that companies like Microsoft gave the NSA early access to information on zero-day bugs in their products.
By concentrating on key escrow the CEOs of Silicon Valley are able to conjure up the perception of an adversarial relationship with federal agencies. This is absolutely crucial because tech companies need to face the public wearing a white hat. In the aftermath of the PRISM scandal, where C-suite types were caught colluding with the government on a first-name basis, American executives are frantically trying to convince people on behalf of quarterly revenue that they’re siding with consumers against spying. An interesting but fundamentally flawed narrative, given how much economic espionage the government conducts and how much spying corporate America does. Who do you think benefits from this sort of mass surveillance?"
"The Cuckservative Phenomenon" by Kevin MacDonald.  The genius of the Southern strategy and other appeals to social triggers was to fool uneducated white trash into voting for Republican plutocrats whose class interests could not possibly be more different from the white trash.  The contradictions are finally exploding under the pressure of Trump and his unabashed appeal to racism under the guise of discussing immigration (there are real economic repercussions to mass immigration involving depression of wages, which is why mainstream Republicans like Jeb are so pro-immigration).  The pressures of the officially hidden American depression are devastating the 99%, requiring scapegoats.  It is telling that supremacists immediately reach for cuckoldry as a metaphor, given the psycho-sexual nature of supremacism (the horrible mass rape by the Red Army of German women at the close of WWII was a message delivered through race tainting, and the constant fantasy/fear of American white supremacists is rape of their women by black, and now Hispanic, men).

"Cruz says Iran could set off Electro Magnetic Pulse over east coast, killing 10s of millions"  You have to feel sorry for Cruz, whose plan to win involved taking the maximalist insane position on every mainstream Republican issue, only to be rendered irrelevant by Trump's taking the maximalist insane position on every non-mainstream Republican issue.

"Denmark Bans Kosher and Halal Animal Slaughter" This kind of legislation is inevitable in civilized places, meaning those who think they have to eat in a specific way are going to have to come up with new methods of killing.

"Wieseltier on Iran: Laughable"  Jews have done very well passing as Americans while giving Americans Zionist imperial advice.  This is the entire shtick of the concentration camp guard, who claims to be a true-blue American giving Americans advice based on solely American interests (you know, the kind of true-blue American who had to leave the USA based on the pressures of the horrible anti-Semitism he faced in America to become a concentration camp guard in Israel!). The Iran deal has pushed them to trying to pass pieces written for and to Jews as pieces written for Americans.  They've lost their talent as gentile whisperers.

"NYT Publishes A Lengthy Editors' Note About Its Mistaken Clinton Email Story"  Pre-President Hillary is so powerful she forced the NYT to change its reporting - twice! - and even forced the DOJ to change the underlying story.  The real story is that aspiring President Hillary wanted to run the State Department doing illegal and immoral things, and didn't want pesky problems with email evidence popping up of such crimes and misdemeanors.

"Pardon Snowden? Nah, White House Says":
""How does President Obama think Snowden should have 'constructively addressed these issues' when his administration has led the worst crackdown on national security and intelligence whistleblowers in U.S. history?" says Jesselyn Radack, an attorney for Snowden.
"The actual consequences of Snowden’s revelations have been an informed global debate that even the president acknowledges 'we needed to have,' two federal court decisions finding that the phone dragnet program [was] 'unlawful' and 'likely unconstitutional,' and the first significant intelligence reform legislation in 30 years."
Radack adds: "Civil disobedience does not require that a person of conscience go to jail. Snowden is not 'running away from his actions' or 'hid[ing] behind the cover of an authoritarian regime.' Snowden is in Russia because of the United States, which revoked his passport while he as transiting through there to Latin America.""

From a review on Yelp of River Bluff Dental which will surely be removed by Yelp so here it is:
"Went in for a routine cleaning with Dr. Palmer, but he kept insisting that I take an anesthetic.  I was confused and refused, but then he offered me a steak (I LOVE steak) so of course I said yes and before I knew it I was super sleepy and passed out.

When I came to, he was pointing a crossbow at me and I had those cartoonish "cut lines" drawn around my neck. Awkwaaaaaard.

Needless to say, I will not be coming back again.  2 Stars because the steak WAS quite good."

Fair game

Traditional enemies of peace:
  1. "How to Defeat the Grand Bargain with Iran"  The Iran deal is a personal tragedy for Ledeen, whose life work has been tricking Americans into various Mid-East holocausts.
  2. "Bernie Sanders: Savior or Seducer of the Anti-War Left?"  The voting record is incredibly damning.  You can see why the Traditional Enemies of Peace don't care for Counterpunch.  Having said that, and in the full expectation of many, many more Wars For The Jews from President Bernie, he's still a lot better than Hillary.
  3. "The Iran Deal and the Rut of History" by Leon Wieseltier.
  4. "Israel's $100 Million Gamble"
  5. "Israel exploits Syrian chaos to plan looting of Golan oil"
  6. "Goals Diverge and Perils Remain as U.S. and Turkey Take on ISIS"  The contradictions are only understandable within the context of an Israeli-driven rolling Yinonization of Syria.
  7. "How to Treat Jonathan Pollard in the Age of Edward Snowden"  You see, Pollard, if understood correctly, is just a noble whistle blower!  Rummy disagrees!
"Did Iranian Nukes Matter?":
"I think it’s become exceedingly clear over the last few months that US hawks, Israeli hawks, and the various Gulf states did not, and do not, care about the Iranian nuclear program. These groups have shifted, almost effortlessly, from whining about Iran achieving nuclear capability in “18 months,” to whining about Iran achieving nuclear capability after the sunset of the current inspection provisions in ten years. This isn’t even an accurate characterization of the deal, but that’s beside the point; the threat of a nuclear Iran has never amounted to more than a side-show for the hawks.
What the hawks want is indefinite militarized confrontation between the United States and Iran. From the perspective of Israel and Saudi Arabia, this is hardly irrational. Iran supports terrorist groups and other non-state actors that like to mess with the Saudis and the Israelis, and both the Saudis and Israelis would like to have the military capabilities of the United States at their disposal. Nor is it irrational for the Saudis and Israelis to believe that the US will come through with this kind of support; the entire GOP Presidential field (with the possible, partial exception of Rand Paul) seems committed to making it happen.
The nuclear program provided a convenient rhetorical focal point for this argument, for the same reason that WMD provided a focal point in the case for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The idea of nuclear weapons is scary; we have an emotional commitment to freaking out about nukes well beyond any operational or strategic utility that they offer. Bleating about how Iran will have nukes in less than 18 months (a claim that Israeli, US, and Saudi hawks have been reiterating since the 1990s) is an easy way of saying “hit those people hard” without the need for any careful strategic analysis.
This is why, for hawks, it is always the right time to strike Iran.  The Oren piece is useful in this regard.  No conceivable deal could achieve what Oren declares that he wants, but of course the point is that he doesn’t want a deal.  He, and other hawks, want the constant threat of US military action, in order to reassure our allies that we will always be prepared to bomb their enemies. There is no conceivable set of nuclear concessions that could make Michael Oren (or Doran, or Kroenig, or Lake, or Kristol, or Cotton, et al ad nausuem) pleased with this deal, because they want military confrontation based on other Iranian foreign policy behaviors.  They’ve known, for quite some time, that the Iranian nuclear program actively detracts from Iran’s ability to pursue its national security goals, both in terms of sucking up resources, and in drawing international sanctions."

"The Indoctrination Game, Part 2: Jewish media influence as decisive in creating a positive public culture of homosexuality"  One of the obsessions of the far right is that the Jews are conspiring to sap the 'precious bodily fluids' (the Jewish Kubrick mocking the American far right!) of Americans by turning Americans queer using their control of the media and entertainment industries.  Given the strange psycho-sexual notions of supremacists - remember Dershowitz actually got away with writing an anti-miscegenation book! - the far right is not necessarily wrong.

This is a piece of knowledge or a technique that, while not exactly criminal, certainly skirts the customs of the time, and possibly the laws as well. All of them, he says, involve 'some sort of scheme for defeating the forces of market competition'. Many involve legal manoeuvrings or the exercising of political influence. Boldness and fearlessness are a given. Mild psychopathy probably helps, too."

"The Inside Story of the Feud Between the Obama and Kenyatta Clans"

"Turkey's war on ISIL a major policy shift"  It's phony.  The intention is to kill Kurds, stop the creation of a Kurdish political entity, and probably steal land from Syria (New Ottoman Empire), all under the politically correct guise of fighting Turkish ally ISIS ("For Erdogan, Turkish assault is about containing the Kurds as much as fighting Isil" and "Has The US Finished The Trap Assad Had Begun To Set For Turkey?" and "Greater Kurdistan for the win!").  I suspect the attack in Turkey blamed on ISIS was false flag, or even a real attack by ISIS encouraged by the Turkish government.  Tweet (Ben Norton):

"Mystery of dead man and his 1,200 guns deepens" (seems legit; my emphasis in red):
"Several neighbors said the man was known only as “Bob” in the local area and described him as a gun fanatic who claimed to have worked covertly for either the FBI or the CIA. His fiancée had lived in the town home on Palisades Drive for years, they said.

“He'll say crazy things to people like he does night missions swimming to Catalina,” said one neighbor, who declined to give her name, saying she was afraid. “He would come … and tell us he would show us self-defense moves.”

An attorney representing the man’s fiancée said that he was the one who contacted police last week about the man’s death and the weapons at the home.

But that’s where the mystery began.

Harland Braun, a veteran criminal defense attorney who has represented celebrities and other high-profile clients, said the story the fiancée told him about what occurred “sounds so bizarre.” The dead man, he said, had told his fiancée that he was an undercover operative for the government and was being watched by the unnamed agency he worked for.

“The problem is that the truth may be unbelievable,” Braun said. “She’ll talk to the LAPD, but will anybody believe it?”

The man’s mysterious past is the reason why his fiancée, Catherine Nebron, didn’t immediately report his death to authorities, her attorney said. Braun said the dead man, whose name he said he couldn’t remember, had been suffering from cancer.

On the Fourth of July, the man, Nebron and two friends were in the parking lot of Bristol Farms on Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica when the man began feeling hot and sick, Braun said. They tried to cool him down with ice, but it didn’t work and he died, Braun said.

The fiancée wasn’t sure what to do with the body, but figured the same unnamed agency watching him would know that he died and would come for him, Braun said. Nebron parked the vehicle on Palisades Drive and left it because she “assumed they were tracking him,” the lawyer said.

The woman went on a trip to Oregon, Braun said, and returned to find the vehicle still parked in the same spot.
Nebron, he said, is “sort of in a state of shock” over the death of a man she knew for 17 years. She had lived in one room of the house while the weapons were locked in another, the attorney said.

“One of the mysteries of this guy is who he really is,” Braun said.

Coroner Deputy Chief Ed Winter said an autopsy was completed Tuesday but a cause of death has yet to be determined. The man’s body was badly decomposed, he said, and the man’s identity remains a mystery.

Los Angeles Police Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese said detectives don’t believe the death is the result of foul play. Albanese said the man was suffering from end-stage cancer and did not work for a government security agency, despite the man’s claims about his past.

But questions remained about why the man had amassed so many weapons. On Tuesday, police were still performing background checks on the man’s firearms."

"Diary" by Tariq Ali"
"Greece, in fact, has a lot of tanks, because the German and French arms industries, eager to get rid of surplus hardware in a world where wars are fought by bombers and drones, bribed the politicians. During the first decade of this century Greece was among the top five importers of weapons, mainly from the German companies Ferrostaal, Rheinmetall and Daimler-Benz. In 2009, the year after the crash, Greece spent €8 billion – 3.5 per cent of GDP – on defence. The then Greek defence minister, Akis Tsochatzopoulos, who accepted huge bribes from these companies, was convicted of corruption by a Greek court in 2013. Prison for the Greek; small fines for the German bosses. None of this has been mentioned by the financial press in recent weeks. It didn’t quite tally with the need to portray Greece as the sole transgressor. Yet a Greek court has been provided with conclusive evidence that the largest tax avoider in the country is Hochtief, the giant German construction company that runs Athens airport. It has not paid VAT for twenty years, and owes 500 million euros in VAT arrears alone. Nor has it paid the contributions due to social security. Estimates suggest that Hochtief’s total debt to the exchequer could top one billion euros."

Broken, but not set

"COUNTERPUNCH - Time for Socialists & anti-imperialists to Boycott It"  It appears that Bibi has issued orders to his lite Zionist troops to shut down all sources of inconvenient information.  I wonder if the lite Zionist hasbaraists are organized and financed through Sheldon's organization.

"Merkel and the Palestinian Refugee Girl: Why Everyone Missed the Point" (an example of the kind of analysis that World Jewry wants censored):
"All these analyses missed the most important point.

Not one of them touched on the fact that Reem is a refugee directly and indirectly because of German actions. Reem, and “thousands upon thousands of Palestinian refugees,” as Merkel put it, are stateless precisely because Germany, along with other western nations, continue to support zionist colonialism that expelled, and continues to expel, native Palestinians from their ancestral homeland.

Reem would not need German “charity” were Germany to insist that the massive military and financial aid it gives to Israel were contingent upon Israel’s adherence to basic tenets of morality and international law that explicitly provide for Reem’s right to live in her native homeland. Reem might not be lost in the world were Germany to make the many lucrative European economic and trade incentives with Israel subject to the dismantling of zionist Apartheid that deems Reem a lesser human, unworthy of her own heritage, home and history.

More than the enormous material support is the favor that Germany provides for Israel to continue its entrenchment of the structural and institutional racism that offers state privilege and entitlement to citizens in accordance with their religion. It because of the political cover that Germany offers Israel to destroy Palestinian life, society and culture with impunity that Reem remains a refugee. Last summer, for example, after Israel slaughtered Palestinians in Gaza from land, air, and sea, the UN Human Rights Council urged the UN to “urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry to investigate all violations [of international law] in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip, in the context of the military operations conducted since 13 June 2014.” Despite the horrors that Palestinians endured in the course of 51 days, Germany could not muster the most minimal affirmation of Palestinian humanity to vote in favor of such an inquiry.

Watching the footage, those of us with a sense of history seethe at such a spectacle of western paternalism. Merkel’s response to Reem was a perfect display of the breathtaking willful denial of western governments, which are, indeed, creators of refugees. The truth is that our part of the world lay in ruin, fear, and devastation largely because of imperialist western “operations” in pursuit of a hegemony that holds our lives in contempt, utter disregard and disrespect. From Iraq to Palestine to Libya, Germany has played a terrible and pivotal role in the evisceration of us. Together with her western allies, they have made beggars of our mothers, doctors and teachers, and produced generations of traumatized, illiterates into what were once high functioning populations. They destroyed our societies down to their foundations, vanquishing the social mechanisms that marginalize extreme elements, such that into the chaos and gaping misery of our lives now runs amuck a powerful organization of ghoulish fanatics."

Guilt by association

"[Marxism] [UCE] The Jewish Voice for Peace Attack on Alison Weir: JVP Loses Its Balance":
"JVP’s entire accusation against Weir is based on guilt by association . . . "
The core concept of Judaism is the concept of uncleanliness, the taint which occurs by virtue of coming into contact with the Unclean (menstruating women, the dead, and the whole food thing).  Such concepts are not unique to Judaism, as religion itself seems to be a set of lists of the good and the bad, but the Jews are obsessed with it.  It is thus no surprise that Jews are completely comfortable with attacking opponents of Jewish supremacism using guilt by association, a clear logical fallacy, and something which many of the rest of us find deeply intellectually offensive.  The rest of the attack consists of the usual Jewish supremacist rhetorical - definitely not logical - approach that any challenge to Jewish supremacism is just disguised 'anti-Semitism' (thus hiding the truth of the facts behind the irrelevant supposed motives of the conveyor of the facts), exactly the way any world-revolves-around-us group would handle any situation.  Of course, Weir's real deep problem is she musters piles and piles of damning information which the Jews are trying to hide.

"SPIEGEL Interview with Julian Assange: 'We Are Drowning in Material'":
"SPIEGEL: Do you see a potential blackmail situation?
Assange: They wouldn't leak transcripts of tapped phone calls as that would draw focus to the spying itself. The way intelligence services launder intercepts is to extract the facts expressed during conversations; for example to say to their contacts in the media, "I think you should look into this connection between this politician and that person, what they did on that particular day."
SPIEGEL: Have you got a documented example in which this sort of tactic has been used?
Assange: We haven't published one yet about a German politician, but there are examples of prominent Muslims in different countries about whom it was leaked that they had been browsing porn. Blackmail or representational destruction from intercepts is part of the repertoire used.
SPIEGEL: Who uses these methods?
Assange: The British GCHQ has its own department for such methods called JTRIG. They include blackmail, fabricating videos, fabricating SMS texts in bulk, even creating fake businesses with the same names as real businesses the United Kingdom wants to marginalize in some region of the world, and encouraging people to order from the fake business and selling them inferior products, so that the business gets a bad reputation. That sounds like a lunatic conspiracy theory, but it is concretely documented in the GCHQ material allegedly provided by Edward Snowden."

Dark thoughts (or 'such a cohen does not exist')

"Dark Thoughts and Quiet Desperation" by David D. Perlmutter (April 07, 2002):
"But what to do? I have other dreams as well--apocalyptic ones. I think:

Israel has been building nuclear weapons for 30 years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance of doom has meant for them in the past, and they have ensured against it. Masada was not an example to follow--it hurt the Romans not a whit, but Sampson in Gaza? With an H-bomb? What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter. Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens?

For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the world either cackles or looks away--unlike the Armenians, Tibetans, World War II European Jews or Rwandans--have the power to destroy the world. The ultimate justice?

These are my dark thoughts and quiet desperations. Who will dissolve them? Who will silence the madness? Will I even be allowed to become an old, bitter man? Will any of us have the chance to look back on these days beyond the mushroom clouds of tomorrow?"
"Israeli Professor: 'We Could Destroy All European Capitals'"

"The Iran Deal Strengthens America's Military Option" (my emphasis in red):
"The nuclear deal strengthens the military option in a number of different ways. One of the least understood is Iran’s decision to relinquish the plutonium route to the bomb. In one of the only permanent features of the deal, Iran has agreed to redesign its Arak heavy water reactor so that it is incapable of producing weapons-grade plutonium, and promised to ship all the spent fuel from the reactor abroad. Furthermore, Tehran has pledged to never acquire reprocessing facilities, which are necessary to produce fissile material for a nuclear weapon.
This is crucial. Although the heavy water reactor is not the most technically difficult nuclear facility to destroy, it is easily the most politically challenging. Indeed, if the Arak heavy water reactor went critical, it would have been impossible to bomb the facility without releasing large amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere. As Amos Yadlin, the former head of Israel’s military intelligence, has warned: “Whoever considers attacking an active reactor is willing to invite another Chernobyl, and no one wants to do that.”
The intrusive inspections of the nuclear deal will also strengthen the military option by allowing the United States and its allies to better map out Iran’s nuclear program. Although the broad contours of Iran’s nuclear facilities are well known, their exact dimensions, as well as the entire supply chain, almost certainly eludes the United States and its allies. As a major 2012 report by the bipartisan Iran Group noted, “complete destruction of Iran’s nuclear program is unlikely” even if U.S. airstrikes are carried out to “near perfection.” Similarly, Greg Thielmann, a former State Department intelligence official, recently pointed out that, after a U.S. attack, it’s hard to imagine “there would not be hundreds of centrifuges left intact.” Intrusive inspections will give the United States and its allies better intelligence to successfully eliminate Iran’s nuclear program.
Most importantly, the new nuclear deal will give the United States and Israel time to develop the capabilities they need to carry out a military strike. A frequent criticism of the deal is that Iran will have few, if any, restrictions on its nuclear program after the deal expires in ten to fifteen years. This ignores that the United States and Israel will be similarly unrestricted after the deal’s expiration.
Moreover, while Iran’s nuclear program will be frozen in place for over a decade, the United States and Israel will be free to strengthen their military capabilities. This will be especially important for Israel, which currently lacks the requisite aircraft and payloads to successfully destroy Iran’s Fordow enrichment plant, which is buried deep within a mountain.
The United States is more capable of bombing the enrichment plant. Over the past decade, it has developed the 30,000-pound massive ordnance penetrator (MOP) for the exact purpose of destroying underground facilities like the Fordow enrichment plant.
Still, it’s unclear if the MOP can successfully destroy all Iran’s nuclear facilities. The bomb can reportedly burrow through 200 feet of earth before exploding, but the Fordow plant is buried 250 feet below a mountain and likely reinforced with concrete. As late as 2012, the U.S. military conceded the bunker-buster MOP couldn’t destroy the Fordow plant.
The Pentagon’s current war plans reportedly call for dropping two bunker-buster bombs on top of each other in order to reach the enrichment plant. This requires excellent precision and, despite recent upgrades to the bomb’s internal guidance system, would be extraordinarily difficult to achieve in the fog of war. However, given all the progress the United States has made in building more powerful bunker-busters over the past decade, there is every reason to believe that Washington will have a bomb capable of destroying the Fordow plant in ten year’s time.
"Zionist Columnist Calls for Economic Sabotage and Cyber Warfare Against Iran":
"Joffe’s provocative screed seems to mimic a little-known 2009 strategy paper produced by the Brookings Institution (a US-based neocon, pro-Israel think tank) entitled “Which Path to Persia?” That paper, co-authored by former high-level American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) member Martin Indyk, likewise outlined duplicitous strategies for out-and-out regime change in Iran including cyber warfare, terrorism, inciting internal ethnic and religious strife, provoking rebellion among minority groups, a military coup, and overt military invasion. The Brookings neocons weighed the pros and cons of each “option” and even went so far as to call for “goading” Iran into retaliating to US covert operations as a pretext for war."
"Will a red cow ignite the Mideast?":
"At the same time, religion scholar Tomer Persico says Jewish law presents a seeming Catch-22: The red heifer must be ritually slaughtered by a cohen who is ritually pure himself – and due to the lack of red heifer ashes, such a cohen does not exist.

But Temple Institute activists say this problem can be circumvented to create the necessary ashes."

Literally in the middle of this outing operetta, they publish this:  "Bill Clinton Allegedly Tried to Sex Bill de Blasio's Press Secretary"

I agree with this comment on a trend in comments. It is particularly noticeable when we're served up a steaming pile of hasbara nonsense from liars like the NYT, and the comments are 90% aware.  This isn't the usual lite Zionist stunt, but real Americans with real opinions.  I expect we will see this trend continue, but comments will be edited or banned from mainstream media outlets.

"Pope Francis, Alison Weir and the Sanhedrin" (Atzmon; my emphasis in red!):
"Alison Weir has recently joined the long list of Goyim who have been charged by the Palestinian Solidarity Movement's Sanhedrin Court. Alison, however, should cheer up, Pope Francis has also been charged in a Sanhedrin court in a different jurisdiction. This time it is the Jerusalem Sanhedrin, pretty much the same Jewish Judicial entity that charged Jesus before he was brought up in front of Roman Governor Pontius Pilate.
An Israeli media outlet reported last week that The Jerusalem Sanhedrin –a Jewish religious ‘High Court composed of 71 sages’, has declared that it is putting Pope Francis on trial unless he retracts his statement that the Jews have no right to the land of Israel or to Jerusalem.
Pope Francis’ crime is that he officially recognised the existence of the State of Palestine. The trial and judgment will be on September 20th, 2015. Fortunately, this leaves Pope Francis enough time to seek legal advice from Alan Dershowitz. However, if Pope Francis chooses to ignore the summons, he will be judged in absentia."

Note that the traditional enemies of peace can't block the deal (Barry's political machinations were clever and the usually useless Congressional Black Congress has his back), so all the whining is extortion for more free Weapons For The Jews from American taxpayers.

"Greece: The Struggle Continues"  Useful but strangely uninformed about backroom dealings.  It remains unclear if:
  1. Tsipras was bought off or blackmailed;
  2. Tsipras is a buffoon;
  3. this highly peculiar politics is part of some larger plan.
It is difficult to criticize the Greek government if there was no sane deal available from the Nazis under any circumstances, something which has now been definitively established. On the other hand, the complete absence of a Plan B is the fault of the Greek government.

"Grexit or Jubilee? How Greek Debt Could Be Annulled" The entire crisis is a paper-shuffler's scam.

"The most successful female athlete of all time just got body shamed in the New York Times"  "David Frum Implies Serena Williams Won By Juicing"  "Top Conservative Pundit Suggests That Serena Williams Won Wimbledon By Cheating"  Let's spell it out for the slow-witted:
  1. performance-enhancing drugs have a remarkable effect on athletic performance;
  2. those who take performance enhancing drugs tend to beat those who don't;
  3. there is oodles of money involved;
  4. there is so much money involved that you'd have to be completely naive to think that warnings aren't given to elite athletes of drug tests, particularly in professional sports.
I have no idea whether any particular earner is on the juice or not, but I know with certainty that some very, very, very high percentage of consistent winners is on performance enhancing drugs (and frankly, you can often tell by looking at the cheaters, as the physiques give them away, particularly in those cases where there has been a marked change).  Note how they try to spin this as a sexism/racism thing, but we went through exactly the same crap with Lance Armstrong.  Frum, who is used to fooling the stupid, is right to raise the issue.  It is disheartening to see this level of gullibility, gullibility which is reflected in the horrible general political situation we are in.  Greenwald is in the wrong line of work.

German problems

Any crisis anywhere is as good an excuse as any for commies to call each other names, hence:  "Requiem at an Empty Grave? Syriza's Momentous Day".  I note comment #6 by tobias:
"The situation as it has developed seems to indicate that Germany, with a trade surplus tied to undervalued the undervalued Euro when compared to the German economy, will not countenance any disruptions in the status quo. Germany wants and needs a Eurozone where they have the premier manufacturing and export economy built on the disadvantages that this currency means for its primary trading partners -- since the Euro is overvalued to them. The Germans will not give an inch to Greece and would rather toss them out and in concert with the ECB cut off Greek banks and let them suffer the consequences. This provides a fine example of the willingness for Germany and Brussels to engage in economic executions. Does anyone think that Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland or even France is willing to follow that same path? Political courage, when facing the banking cartel, evaporates like alcohol on a sunny day. Lets see how it plays out. Greece may ultimately have no other choice but to risk an exit and a re-establishment of the drachma. That will be a tough row to hoe with its meager export economy."
Making the problem not Greek weakness and incompetence in negotiation, but German weakness. The German elites are terrified at the prospect of the combination of their demographic problem and the loss of their competitive advantage caused by the relative cheapness of the Euro compared to how the Deutschmark would be valued.

"Is Merkel Being Irrational?":
"Since the beginning of the crisis, Germany’s position has been one of defending austerity as the only way out of it. This meant “sacrifices” for everyone in Europe: not only for the southern European populations with neoliberal bombs dropping in their backyards, but also for the German working class, which has witnessed a strong deregulation of the labor market, precarization of labor relations, and a loss of purchasing power.
The ideological story sold to the German working class was that the European project would collapse if they bailed out southern Europeans, whose plight was self-inflicted through over-spending and poor productivity. However, it soon became obvious that austerity does not solve any economic and financial problems — it deepens them (debt has grown in relation to GDP in all countries that have tried the austerity remedy).
When Syriza came to power in Greece, there was finally one voice inside the European institutions that could prove this fact and eventually challenge the hyper-neoliberalization of Europe.
But for Germany to accept Syriza’s demands would be to acknowledge that austerity was not a solution but a problem — that Germany’s political and economic agenda over the last seven years was wrong and has completely failed to provide the results it promised. More than this, it would be a concession that the sacrifices imposed on the German working class were actually in vain, and only served to further tilt the balance of power away from labor and toward capital.
German elites are thus willing to let the euro crash (or transform it into something else — an exclusively center and northern European currency, for example) to guarantee their political survival.
There is also nothing irrational about the way they are playing the “blame game.” If Germany forces Greece into bankruptcy (which is bound to happen sooner or later), this would create a domino effect that destabilized the European economy for a period of time. The blame would then be placed on the “stubborn” Greek government that refused to negotiate and to accept the “help” and “aid” that Germany was willing to give them."
'Life' in Greece under austerity: "Life Under Austerity"

"Greek debt crisis: Goldman Sachs could be sued for helping hide debts when it joined euro"  The real damages to Greece and Europe should be enough to wipe Goldman Sachs off the map.  The problem is that all parties on all sides knew they were being defrauded.  The grifter's motto, and the corporate strategy statement of Goldman Sachs, is you can't con an honest man.
