Murky details

"Britain’s Jewish Press are Revolting" (Greenhalgh).  "Coordinated Amplified In-Your-Face Jewing" (Tanstaafl). On Hodge:  "Labour’s Gas-Chamber Blues: Pink Berets vs “F***ing Anti-Semites”" (Langson).  "Bogus anti-Semitism campaign against Corbyn and the “left” escalates" (Shaoul/Marsden).  Given the blatant ridiculousness of the attack, and the highly coordinated nature of the PR, it is impossible to maintain the usual Weissian line that this doesn't represent the views of the wider Jewish community.

Just in terms of pure political tactics, these Khazar attacks on Corbyn are difficult to understand.  Why do they think they'll succeed now when they've failed on so many other attempts?  Corbyn is immune to the usual financial blandishments, and refuses to kowtow to the 'donor' model, so they lack their usual weapons.  He's strengthened with each wave of attacks, and they can't expect any sympathy when he is Prime Minister.  Their failure to give up is a sign of pure desperation

(((Somebody))) is up to the usual trick, trying to have something happen by setting it up as a fait accompli:  "US Preparing To Bomb Iran's Nuclear Capabilities As Soon As Next Month: Report" (Durden).  Mattis walked it back immediately, demonstrating that even the hint of such talk is damaging to the Powers That Be.

"Russia Swats Away Israeli Bluster on Syria" (Bhadrakumar):
"Damascus is now turning attention to the liberation of the northwestern province of Idlib. It will be a major confrontation due to the presence of a large number of foreign terrorists in Northwestern Syria. The Iranian media reported that a Russian flag ship Ro-Ro Sparta was spotted crossing the Bosporus en route to Syria’s Tartus, carrying military cargo mostly ammunition, shells and missiles and that the reinforcements are meant for the Syrian Army’s “upcoming assault” on Idlib province."
Particularly clownish effort by Margolis, decimated by its first comment by bob sykes:  "The Looming War Against Iran".  The Iranians are fully aware of what another Assholian carpet bombing campaign could do to them, and thus have pre-planned extensive Revolutionary Guard operations all along the coast of the Straits.  These will continue even if there is no functioning government in Tehran, and there is no practical way to stop them.  All they have to do is sink one oil tanker, doable in a very low tech operation.  I've been saying for years in the face of 'Iran Talk' that a war on Iran is impossible, and it is still impossible, no matter how many shekels rain down on American politicians.  The Deep State would immediately assassinate any American politician who took the shekels and effectively decided to ruin that much wealth all at once.

"Painting a false picture" (Such) (review of "The Wrong Story: Palestine, Israel and the Media" by Greg Shupak).  "Israel’s Crimes Against Humanity, Videos they Don’t want you to see".  I note that most of this stuff is within the bounds of 'controlled opposition' (e.g., Noam!), and they don't mind our seeing it at all (much of it on the heavily policed YouTube, which should tell you a lot!).

"Saudi Arabia Teams Up with the UK to Kill Off Al Jazeera" (Dorsey) (like the Fox link of the other day, and a new trend, is that you may not be able to click on the link and have it open as a hyperlink, but may have to copy and paste the url in a new window).  It seems this was a main reason behind the Saudi/UAE attack on Qatar.  The other reason was a doctrinal issue of whether the Muslim Brotherhood and its operations should be supported - the Qataris said yes, but the Saudis really fear that it is a MB uprising which will end with the princely heads on pikes.

"A Look at Saudi Arabia: Barometer of World Evil" (Butler).

"The Pentagon, the CIA, and the NSA Are in Charge" (Hornberger).

What makes Assholians proud!: tweet (Murad Gazdiev):
"Imagine if the Russian military posted something like this."
"China Days Away From Test-Firing Russian S-400 Missile Defense System: Tass" (Durden).

Odd:  "NSA has yet to fix security holes that helped Snowden leaks".

"'Western' Press Dislikes Imran Khan's Win In Pakistan's Election" (Moon).  Best endorsement you can get!

"The social and political background to the forest fire disaster in Greece" (Selin):
"While no statements have been made about the motives and causes of arson, many observers suspect land speculation. In Greek regions that promise lucrative profits through the sale of real estate, fires are started time and again, to later build illegally on the burnt-out former forestland. This criminal practice has been possible for years because politicians and the authorities take no action against it, but, on the contrary, retrospectively legalize the repurposing of forestland as building land. The fact that Greece has no national forestry register and the ownership of the land is often not clear plays into the hands of the real estate mafia. The Syriza government has also not changed these conditions. The business with fire makes room for the many private investors—which Syriza woos at every opportunity.

. . .

This also affects the fire department. Before the onset of the economic crisis in 2009, the Greek fire service had an annual budget of 452 million euros. By 2017, this had been cut by more than 20 percent to 354 million. The media report a lack of protective clothing, faulty breathing apparatus and outdated and often unusable fire trucks and fire fighting planes."

Blatant deception:  "Twitter Disavows Shadow Banning, But Facts Say Otherwise".  Caught red-handed on your secret program - well, naturally, you lie about it.

More questions that won't be answered:  "The Salisbury Poisonings: 10 Questions for the Authorities to Answer About Their Handling of This Case" (Slane).

"Carter Page Pressed on CIA Links and Says a Jew Invited Him to Speak in Russia" (Rogers).  Shlomo, no less:
"So long story short, Page was hastily and curiously invited to speak at a high profile event in Russia by a Jew who spent a significant part of his life in Israel. Page’s speaking engagement was then referenced within the #pissgate dossier. The speech allowed Steele to claim that Page had met with various Russian government officials while he was in Moscow. And this was a big part of what the FBI used to request the warrant to spy on Page and by proxy the Trump campaign as a whole.

I would say that all of this makes the theories about Page being a CIA asset planted inside the Trump campaign even more credible. It certainly helps explain why he hasn’t been arrested and why he keeps talking to the media. And of course, it also shows more Jewish involvement in this Trump-Russia hoax circus."
Unlikely hero news, part of a series from The Clarification:  "Liberals Leap to Defend Neo-Con Henchman McFaul" (Cartalucci).

"Judge Forces Fusion GPS To Disclose Murky Details Behind Steele Dossier" (Durden).  This could end up being quite important.

After much unnecessary death, the Syrian Kurds are slowly coming to their senses:  "Kurdish delegation in Damascus for peace talks" and "Kurds reach deal with Damascus to end Syria conflict" and "US-backed Syrian Kurds agree to 'roadmap' with Assad government".  Neither the Americans nor Israelis can help them in the stark choice between being slaughtered by the Turks and seeking some protection within the Syrian state.  This is important as these 'militants' have been working for the Americans on Yinonization of Syria.

"Vanessa Beeley: White Helmets are Israel’s terrorist organs" (Alexis).

The Great Shiksa Pogrom continues (with thanks to Farrow for his usual excellent work):  "The New Yorker Piece On Les Moonves Came Out, Wife Julie Chen Is Defending Him" (Harvey).
