Link contamination

You have to wonder why the academic topic of rhetoric has essentially disappeared.

"Uber-loser Poroshenko goes “full Saakashvili”" (The Saker).  On the prospects of WWIII as Poroshenko's Plan B - after his attempt to block the elections through martial law failed - to keep himself from losing the next election and, inevitably, going to jail.

"Syria: Alleged Chemical Attack Elicits 180 Degree Response from West" (Cartalucci).  A chemical attack in Syria and crickets from the (((media))) means somebody screwed up!  Where are the White Helmets when we need them?!

"Trump tries to play ‘Cowboys and Indians’ with international treaties" (Madsen).  This is mostly about suppressing competition in the casino business for the benefit of Khazar billionaires and Trump himself.

"If The Saudi's Oil No Longer Matters Why Is Trump Still Supporting Them?" (Moon).  The Clarification.  Just a few years ago fracking seemed like it might be technically impossible, but it has changed the entire world in profound ways, a fact not yet digested by the slowest of world 'leaders'.  The concept of a 'war for oil' is now completely ridiculous.

One of the big crapification developments in recent years - and yet another outrage we can blame largely on the Khazars - is the complete weaponization of 'human rights':  "“Human Rights Movement” Shifts for Focus to Rohingya Conflict yet Again" (Terehov).  The removal of all credibility from human rights complaints is exactly what (((they))) want.

"Major psy-op in Europe exposed: UK government tramples on values it vowed to protect" (Gorka).  "Lack of integrity" (Robinson).  You're not supposed to notice that the Brits have been doing much worse than what Putin has been accused of doing to Americans.

"The criminalization and censorship of Palestinian solidarity on campus" (Elia).  This is just corruption.  'University administrators' are notoriously beshekeled.

"Twitter closes down my account for ‘hateful conduct’" (Greenstein):
"Above all we should recognise that Twitter, like Facebook, is not an impartial platform. It is very much part of Western capitalism and imperialism. It defends the values of oppression and imperialism and it does so in the depoliticised language of equalities. In essence this is an outgrowth of identity politics whereby any identity, even those of Zionists and capitalists is protected because there is no means of differentiating between identities of oppression and the oppressed."
"Dispute Over ‘Lingerie’ Comment Persists, as Society Rejects Professor’s Appeal" (Mangan).  Note that the complainant, who appears to be insane, "was born in Romania and raised in Israel", and this looks exactly like what somebody would do if she were trying to damage the credibility of the entire #metoo movement, a movement which has taken an awful toll on machers.

It pays to increase your word power:  "deadnaming".

"WASHINGTON POST: Tucker Carlson Is Guilty Under The Transitive Property Law Of Crimethink" (Sailer).  It's funny how much the idea of kosher/treif, and the accompanying concept of contamination (requiring two sets of cooking equipment, for example), has infected discussion of intellectual issues.  Remember back to the days of the illegal and immoral and stupid American attack on Iraq, and somebody would righteously complain about it, drawing an approving link from somebody like David Duke (he's still greatly fascinating to a certain group), meaning that the original writer, by the concept of link contamination, was suddenly a 'Nazi'.  Why do we allow (((these people))) to manipulate us this way?

An interesting convoluted Zionist attempt to de-Palestinianize the #Resistance, again with the concept of contamination (a real stretch in this case, involving another favorite 'contaminator' of the Khazars, Louis Farrakhan):  "A Record Number of Women Were Just Elected, but the Women’s March Is Imploding" (see also here and here).  The alleged 'turmoil' is entirely made up by Khazars with the goal of getting Linda Sarsour out of a prominent media position.  Note that Sarsour is contaminated even though she didn't personally attend the contaminating speech!

Called his wife after

"US Mass Mobilizations: Wars and Financial Plunder" (Petras).  Nobody dare say it, of course, but there is a vitally important fifth kholumn, both in the organization of the 'anti-war' movement, and in the media, which operates to ensure that the wars continue for the perceived benefit of the people in said fifth kholumn.

"Israeli Cyber Firm Negotiated Advanced Attack Capabilities Sale With Saudis, Haaretz Reveals" (Kubovich).  "Kusher pumped up Saudi sales from $15 to $110 billion? “Say it ain’t so Joe”."  "Israel’s espionage crimes in Gaza and abroad" (Murphy).

"Pierre Omidyar: A Dangerous Billionaire-Backer of the “Resistance”" (Haiphong).

"Key Witness Poisoned In "Mysterious" Death Surrounding Colombian Corruption Probe" (Durden).

"Liberal MP's name came up in wider police probe into money laundering: CP source".  Just the usual casino laundering of money to be used to fund terrorism, from Trudeau's 'full-service' caucus.  They almost got away with having him slip out without anybody knowing why.

"U.K. and Ecuador Conspire to Deliver Julian Assange to U.S. Authorities" (Porter). Luke Harding is so obvious an active intelligence plant that it is almost funny.

"Guardian ups its Vilification of Julian Assange" (Cook).  The alleged Monafort-Assange meeting was a lie, and the very public nature of Assange's imprisonment would make checking this easy, if The Guardian had any concern for annoying facts that interfere with its slurring.

"New York Times: Our crime was telling the truth" (Damon):
"Over the second half of 2016, WikiLeaks released information provided to it by an unknown whistleblower documenting massive corruption on the part of Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and the Democratic National Committee. The emails showed that, in exchange for six-figure speaking fees, Clinton would tell Wall Street bankers that wealthy people should have more influence in American politics.

They also documented how Clinton received debate questions in advance that her opponent did not have access to, and how the Democratic National Committee leadership had been bought by the Clinton campaign and worked to ensure the defeat of her opponent. These revelations were reported throughout the print and broadcast media.

According to Stamos and Kristof, the major newspapers should have simply censored themselves and refused to cover WikiLeaks’ revelations."
I'm certain they would have buried this material but for the fact the Clintonistas were so certain of winning that they thought it could not threaten her victory.

Tweet (Lincoln's Bible):
"Today is a good day 2 remind every1 that Dershowitz is Jeff Epstein's best friend & attorney, who was also named by at least 1 girl alleging assault. His defense was that he did have a massage from a woman named Olga, didn't like it, kept his underwear on & called his wife after."

'The 'Texans' arrive

The most important preparation for running for President is 'The Visit'.  By 'Texans'!

Added:  "Beto O’Rourke’s presidential flare reminds progressives of his fawning to AIPAC" (Weiss).  We can laugh, but this kind of utterly immoral cluelessness - or feigned cluelessness (you'd have to think his political backroom operators are young enough that the cluelessness may be meant ironically, at least as an in-joke, while still allowing him to take the bags of shekels schlepped by Shlomo) - won't end until there are real consequences for it.

Facing disaster

"The American ‘melting pot’ can turn into a volatile mixture at the top" (Madsen, who lists many other examples, including the crop of squatters who have settled in the White House to advocate for the Khazar Empire):
"The bitter feud between Melania Trump and Mira Ricardel likely has its roots in their backgrounds in the former Yugoslavia. Ricardel was born Mira P. Radielović, the daughter of Peter Radielovich, a native of Breza, Bosnia-Herzegovina. in the former Yugoslavia. Ricardel speaks fluent Croatian and was a member of the Croatian Catholic Church. Melania Trump was born Melanija Knavs [pronounced Knaus] in Novo Mesto in Slovenia, also in the former Yugoslavia. Villagers in the village of Sevnica, where Ms. Trump was raised, claim she and her Communist Party parents were officially atheists. Ms. Trump later converted to Roman Catholicism. She and her son by Mr. Trump, Barron Trump, speak fluent Slovenian. The Yugoslav Civil War, which began in earnest in 1991, pitted the nation’s ethnic groups against one another. There are ample reasons, political, ethnic, and religious, for bad blood between the Slovenian-born First Lady and a first-generation Croatian-American. The “battle royal” between Ms. Trump and Ricardel is but one example of a constant problem in the United States when individuals with foreign ties bring age-old inter-ethnic and inter-religious squabbles to governance.

Perhaps no one in recent memory brought such a degree of ethnic baggage to her job like Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Albright’s Czech roots and the Yugoslav warrant issued for the arrest of her professor-diplomat father, Joseph Korbel, for the post-World War II theft of art from Prague, brought forth extreme anti-Serbian policies by the woman who would represent the United States at the United Nations and then serve as America’s chief diplomat. Albright’s hatred for Serbia was not much different than Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Polish heritage evoking an almost-pathological hatred of Russia, while he served as Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser.

Albright’s bias against Serbia saw her influence US policy in casting a blind eye toward the terrorism carried out by the Kosovo Liberation Army and its terrorist leader Hashim Thaci. That policy resulted in Washington backing an independent Kosovo, a state beholden to organized criminal syndicates protected by one of the largest US military bases in Europe, Camp Bondsteel."

The false-flag gas attack the Russians were warning about appears to have happened, but was bungled (thus it is not on the front page of every western newspaper) - perhaps because the White Helmets aren't around to manage things, living 'peaceably' in Canada!:  "Syria Chlorine Reprise, Act 27" (West).

"Brexit Is the Equivalent of a Major Defeat in War" (Cockburn).  As usual, comments far superior to whatever the article was. Ten years from now Europe will be even more of a mess than it is now, and the Brits will realize how smart they were to get away.

A story appeared that a critic of the Syrian government was assassinated, leading you to believe, in typical 'journalism' fashion, that Assad did it:  tweet (The War Nerd):
"What's up with the Guardian? Fares is killed in Idlib, and the first part of the story is still about his problems with The Regime. Casual readers are invited to miss the key fact—Fares was killed by the jihadi militias we've been coddling all these years"
"More Details Emerge Behind Washington's Decision To Leave INF Treaty" (Akulov).  Another arms race.  Bonus - neither side has any defensive capability against the new weapons!

More of that crack Russian diplomacy:  "The Final Push for Idlib Will Come Soon" (Pieraccini) (my emphasis in red, with the idea that Russia providing 'obsolete' equipment may have been part of the trick):
"Russian and Syrian efforts have been moving in two very specific directions over the last few weeks. While Moscow supplies Damascus with new equipment in preparation for the future advance on Idlib, Putin and his entourage continue diplomatic efforts to draw more of Syria’s enemies closer to the Russia-Iran-Syria axis. The meeting that brought about the demilitarized zone included Macron and Merkel, the Europeans having evidently come to terms with the impossibility of overthrowing the legitimate government of Syria. Macron and Merkel were offered a way out of the Syrian conflict, decoupling themselves from the belligerent stance of the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The intention is to usher Paris and Berlin towards the same direction Qatar, Turkey and Jordan have been progressively gravitating. Certainly, these are not countries to be considered friends of Damascus. Rather, they are parties with whom a constructive dialogue needs to be entered into in order to advance common diplomatic interests.
Moscow has often found it possible to reach an agreement or start unpublicized negotiations with each of these parties. Erdogan seems to have preferred an agreement with Putin rather than waiting for the liberation of Idlib by the SAA, thus being able to postpone the natural conclusion of the war that will find him sitting at the table defeated. At the same time, Erdogan wants to concentrate on the Kurds in order to secure the border between Syria and Turkey controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), and to prevent any partition of Syrian territory that would favor other parties. Jordan has even reopened the border crossings with Syria, appearing to be the first country in opposition to Damascus that is now taking practical steps to mend fences.
The case of the participation of the two European countries at the summit with Erdogan and Putin is more complex. The rift between Washington and the other European capitals is wide and well documented, even more so after the events in Paris commemorating the end of the First World War. Macron and Trump seem to be diverging further in terms of policy and ideology, while Trump and Merkel have always had their differences. Trump's choices in the Middle East, in the wake of the destructive actions of Israel and Saudi Arabia, marked a profound point of difference and mistrust with the European allies. Macron and Merkel have a huge problem dealing with refugees flowing from areas in North Africa and the Middle East destroyed by US-led wars. The prospect of working with Erdogan, and indirectly with Damascus, to bring back hundreds of thousands of refugees currently in France and especially Germany, seems to have been Putin's winning argument during the talks in Istanbul.
This slow diplomatic approach has been accelerated as a result of Israel’s downing of a Russian electronic-surveillance aircraft. The need to avoid a direct conflict between Moscow and Tel Aviv allowed the Russian missile forces to deploy to Syria an advanced model of the S-300 in addition to the existing S-300/400 systems on the ground. The presence of these advanced systems, and Moscow’s threats to use them, together with American concerns over the possibility of an F-35 being shot down by Soviet systems dating from the 1970s, forced the Zionist entity to halt its attacks on Syria."
Surfing with weev (scroll down to the comments; it's going to take me a month for each blog posting!):
"I am careful in how I use the Internet.

I generally do not connect to web sites from my main machine, aside from a few sites I have some special relationship with. I usually fetch web pages from other sites by sending mail to a program (see that fetches them, much like wget, and then mails them back to me. Then I look at them using a web browser, unless it is easy to see the text in the HTML page directly. I usually try lynx first, then a graphical browser if the page needs it (using konqueror, which won’t fetch from other sites in such a situation).

I do have a disposable machine I use for gaming, but I reimage it regularly, and keep it on a segregated network away from serious business stuff. I also have a separate machine I use for doing stuff like looking up images to put in articles, or finding YouTube embeds. It gets wiped every day.

The web browser I use to access the BBS and other things I login that I have a personal connection with is not present on my actual machine. It is displayed on my desktop via remote X."

"Hate Hoaxer Michael Ron David Kadar Sentenced In Israel" (Sailer):
"The New York Times runs a sizable article on the sentencing of the Israeli-American Jewish man who phoned in all those bomb threats to Jewish institutions in the U.S. and yet, incredibly, never mentions his name nor that he is Jewish."
"Regime Change In China? The Kristol Never Rests" (Sailer).

"Death of HHS official Daniel Best is ruled a suicide". The ol' suicide-by-repeated-blunt-force-trauma, almost as good as the suicide-by-multiple-gun-shots-to-the-head.  He "was found "unresponsive" near the garage door exit of an apartment building" - do you think he could have been under the garage door which went up and down on him (classic place and method of committing suicide!) - and, by complete coincidence, had the single most dangerous job in America, leading "U.S. Department of Health and Human Services efforts to lower prescription drug prices".

After Trump's bizarre attempt to protect MbS, the CIA ups the ante:  "CIA has Recording of Saudi Crown Prince planning Hit on Khashoggi: Turkish ‘Hurriyet’" (Cole).  The CIA and Turkey have got a little thing going on, probably hatched when Bloody Gina paid a personal visit.  I'm sure Erdoğan has told Bloody that he doesn't actually expect to get his hands on her pet, Gülen, but talking about it is good for his domestic politics.

"Russian diplomacy is winning the New Cold War" (Cohen).  The Americans have no answer to this.  Any American attempt at any kind of give-and-take negotiation would, according to the (((neocons))), be a fatal admission of weakness.

"Phanar Phantom" (Shamir).  Heavy duty analysis of the complex Ukrainian/American ecclesiastical attack on Russia.  This is more what American 'diplomacy' looks like, though I'm sure the actual idea came from Ukraine.

"Thanks to the BBC Propaganda Show, the Plausibility of the Door Handle Theory Just Plummeted to Freezing Point" (Slane), describing a series of obvious lies pasted together into a TV show, including:
"At one point the presenter, Jane Corbin, stated the following:
“In Salisbury, it takes two weeks of painstaking investigation for scientists and police to work out exactly how the Skripals came into contact with the Novichok.”
Dept Asst Commissioner Dean Haydon is then seen saying:
“To find the source of the Novichok, actually was our first breakthrough. We identified that it was Novichok on the front door the front door handle of their home address.”
This two week period makes little sense. From the moment it was known that Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey had been poisoned, it should have been very straightforward to start zeroing in on the location of the poisoning. The reason for this is that logically it could only have been in a place that both he and the Skripals had been. And according to Mr Bailey’s story, which was completely different than what many officials previously told us about his movements, this can only have been at the house (not even the bench according to his testimony, as he now apparently wasn’t there when the Skripals were). And so the house should have been locked down, with swabs taken as early as 6th March, and the location of the poison identified. But instead, we got two weeks of “it could be here, it could be there” — all in various places which couldn’t possibly have been the location because Mr Bailey hadn’t actually been to them."
"Hillary Clinton Blames “Vitriolic Jew Media” for 2016 Election Loss" ('Shmuley Ben Shekelheim').  I wouldn't change a word of this.  Clinton's officially throwing refugees under the bus in order to win encompasses the two parts of Clintonista/liberal strategy:
  1. the core concept that 'deplorables', whether European or American, are irredeemably racist, but so stupid as to be easily manipulable; and
  2. the fact that they don't give a shit about the objects of their virtue signalling, except insofar as they can use them to gain votes from the tender-hearted.
'Cluster'-ratfucking:  "British Government Runs Secret Anti-Russian Smear Campaigns" (Moon).

""The Chimera Of Donald Trump, Russian Money Launderer"" (explaining why Mueller is spinning his wheels):
"Is Donald Trump guilty of money laundering? If you ask most Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans, they fervently believe that he has been moving money for Russian mobsters for more than twenty years and that an investigation of this will bring Trump’s Presidency to an end. Don’t count on it. Although there is clear evidence of Trump’s past relationship with Russian/American mobsters, knowing someone or collaborating on a business deal is not proof of money laundering. I have spent three decades investigating money laundering cases (I helped develop the civil money laundering case against Philip Morris—click here) and it is clear to me that those who are earnestly accusing Trump of such a crime do not understand what constitutes money laundering.

Apart from not understanding how to make a money laundering case, the anti-Trumpers have failed to grasp another key element to the narrative that Trump was a puppet to the Russians—one of his longtime Russian business associates, Felix Sater, was an FBI informant during the entire time that Robert Mueller was FBI Director. Since Sater was a fully signed up FBI informant or asset, he was in a unique and powerful position to implicate Trump. But none of the “evidence” uncovered or planted by Sater ever produced an indictment of Donald Trump. With the benefit of hindsight it appears that the FBI, relying on Sater, used Trump and his organization as bait to go after Russian mobsters."
"And who was in charge of the FBI during all of the time that Sater was a signed up FBI snitch? You got it—Robert Mueller. Let us just stick with the facts—during Mueller’s term (2001 thru 2013) the FBI did not make or bring a case of money laundering against Donald Trump. Yet, during this period, Felix Sater, a fully signed up and opeating FBI informant, was trying to cobble together real estate deals with Russians of questionable character. Trump and his organization were not implicated in any of this activity in a way that led the FBI to seek an indictment against them.

Many House Democrats are convinced that there is untapped evidence implicating Trump in a variety of money laundering schemes. But their belief, in my view, is based on a fundamental ignorance about money laundering and financial crimes in general. Tax avoidance, for example, is not money laundering. Highly publicized real estate deals are not the kind of cleaning operation that genuine money launderers embrace. Why? Those kind of deals come with scrutiny and the last thing that criminals with dirty money want is a high profile and public attention.

If you hate Trump and are betting that the Democrat investigative tsunami will bring Trump down, I have a word of advice—don’t bet your house. Donald Trump may be guilty of boorish behavior and brash comments, but the evidence of laundering money for the Russians is not there."
Trump has an insatiable need for capital for his real estate development projects, and a complete lack of scruples about the source of the capital, but that, in itself, doesn't constitute money laundering. The economy would screech to a halt if the source of all investments had to be certified as pure. There is more than a hint that Trump was in on Sater's actions, meaning he was helping Mueller (!) and the FBI fight actual money laundering. If they wanted to find actual Trump criminality, they would be investigating Trump's involvement with corrupt unions in New York City, but, as such unions are firmly Democrat supporting, nobody wants to go there.

"Zionism, Judaism and the Jewish State of Israel" (Brayer).  Rigorous legal analysis of how the law and legal practice in Israel is so fucked up as it is grounded in one principle (I would read all of this as the analysis is consistently impressive):
". . . the most significant binary opposition of Rabbinical Judaism: the Jew/Gentile or Jewish/goy opposition, the consequences of which have always been, and remain, central to Jewish life. Talmon did not explain that the principle of separation derives from kadosh – which is translated as holy, but its literal meaning is “set aside” or “separate from”. The separation that both exists and is demanded for Jews is the separation from the “impure”. God is kadosh and His people must be kadosh too. This is the significance of “chosenness” – chosen by God to have the existential quality of purity. The Jew is pure because he possesses a soul – – nefesh in Hebrew. The purpose of all Jewish ritual is to sustain the state of purity of the Jew. Jews are commanded to do all in their power to avoid being contaminated by what is considered impure. In contrast to Jews, goys or goyim, the latter having the same dictionary meaning as gentium, people, fall into the category of the impure because they are not born with souls and are therefore, existentially separated from God without any possibility of “closing the gap”. Hence in the Jewish lexicon the term goy has a pejorative meaning while gentium does not. This is the fundamental reason that the Jew is not required to the treat the goy as an equal because, according to Judaism, he is not equal. In fact, the goy is considered as chattel because chattel do not have souls. The goy is therefore not fully human. In this essay I shall only use the term goy for this reason.
This existential distinction between the Jew and the goy is reflected in the absence of a Jewish universal moral code, an absence which is not found within either Christianity or Islam. Judaism’s moral code is characterized by its particularity: it only binds Jews vis-à-vis Jews, not Jews vis-à-vis goys. The most outstanding exemplar of this system is that a Jew is not bound to save the life of a goy if saving the life requires the use of electricity or travelling in a motor vehicle, such as an ambulance, because such activities are forbidden on the Sabbath as they are considered forms or work, and a Jew may not work on the Sabbath. a Jew may do so for another Jew according to the law known as pikuah nefesh which translates as saving a soul. A Jew not only may break the Sabbath to save a Jewish soul, he is obligated to do so. Pikuah may be translated as to take care of and to oversee, and nefesh means soul: because goys do not have souls, pikuah nefesh cannot be applied. In addition, another exceptional phenomena of the Jewish moral code is that it does also not make truth binding upon the Jew with respect to the goy. There are only two instances where it is recommended that a Jew ought to tell the truth to a goy: when there is a danger to his life, or if it is in the interests of the Jew or the Jewish community."
Israel is fucked up because 'European Judaisim' is fucked up.  Additionally insane, of course, because, according to their own theology, the people with souls are the people we call Palestinians, and the 'Rabbinical Jews' are just a bunch of pagan goys who have stolen their claim to having souls.

 "Jewish leaders call for new editions of the Bible and the Koran to carry trigger warnings highlighting anti-Semitic passages".  Paul/Saul traveled all over the Middle East preaching and converting, and went on that weird boat trip to Rome to be tried - the irony throughout is that, like with the assassination of Christ, it is the local Jewish leaders who insist that the Romans take action to execute Paul, but, until his conversion 'on the road to Damascus' Saul was himself a local Jewish leader who insisted that the Romans suppress Christianity! - but ended up everywhere else around the Mediterranean, and never once encountered a Khazar, yet people with names like Shmuley Ben Shekelheim now want to censor references to what the 'Jews' did in the Bible and Koran, when those people are now what we call Palestinians!  I can't even explain how seriously fucked up this is!

Laughing his head off

"Luongo: Is Bill Browder Behind The Anti-Russia Interpol Propaganda?"  Problem solved:  "Interpol Defies Russia, Elects South Korean As President".

"Khashoggi: How US Media Is Losing Its Moral Compass by Feeding Off Conspiracy Theories" (Jay):
"Erdogan must be laughing his head off in Turkey as he sees day after day that western media just report as facts, what his officials say about the details of the murder. And laughing even hysterically when all he needs to do is write an article taking the moral high ground – don’t laugh – on the rights of journalists in the region and give it to the Post to publish.
Good investigative journalists are cynical about everything which is presented to them. Is, for example, the relationship between Khashoggi and his fiancé entirely what it seemed, or was she directed by Erdogan to ‘honey trap’ the Saudi journalist as part of an elaborate plot to ensnare the Saudi crown prince? Sources from the intelligence community of one middle eastern country (I prefer not to name which one) are at least beginning to wonder about this. And almost certainly so are the Saudis. Yet western journalists who refuse to at least consider that the Khashoggi abduction was bungled (and ended up being a murder) are likely to call this a conspiracy theory. Even if it is, they should at least report on it and mull it. What about all the tools which the hit team brought, they might ask. Could they have been brought to be used to scare Khashoggi into handing over the information that MbS was seeking?
Khashoggi’s fiancé doesn’t seem distraught and the sheer speed in which the couple headed towards the marriage courts is questionable, as is, indeed her own personal relationship with Erdogan, which she even admitted to the BBC. Other questions should be the ‘evidence’ presented by Erdogan, which is looking ropy to say the least, which some journalists are identifying as such.
For the moment, the only certain thing about the Khashoggi affair is how standards of western media have plummeted to an all time low with the Post leading the pack with partisan judgment, check book journalism and an internal guilt trip fuelling their unremarkable reporting, not to mention their abysmal editorial judgment. American media has lost the moral compass and Khashoggi will be remembered for this above all – with many arguing that this, in itself, plays a role in the impunity of those carrying out the rendition and murder. When the Saudis fell into the Turkish trap, they probably believed that Turkey would be the last place in the world to care about one kidnapped journalist. But they could never have imagined how partisan, sloppy and hypocritical western media would be in covering the story. What Khashoggi has taught us is that the day that Americans read newspapers based on the editors’ judgment are well behind us. So why should we read them at all?"
One possibility is that he was acting as a spy for the CIA (that would explain his working for the CIA house organ, the WaPo), and wanted to pretend to 'come out of the cold' and get back in with the princelings (to aid his spying), and was tricked (by the fiancé?) to attend at the consulate so the Saudis could deal with a spy in the traditional manner (the killing of spies is not generally regarded as a moral or legal issue).  Comment by Southerly Buster:
"This is all a struggle between Mossad and the CIA.

Mossad usurped the Saudi Throne and installed Prince MBS, much to the shagrin of the CIA who had been backing the old school hereditary Princes. Khashoggi was in the 'old school Princes' team.

Turkey misceviously exposed the deed as payback, knowing it would cause all types of internal struggles.

It's obvious that Trump's bizarre response (with his heart on his sleeve it reminds me of a Rodney Dangerfield comedy bit, including flop sweat), with its unnecessary and factually incorrect statements about Iran - only one (((bunch of monsters))) cares about Iran - was paid for by Sheldon and perhaps (((others))), putting the King and MbS deeply in the debt of the Khazars.  I wonder if we will soon see a reversal of the King's refusal to allow MbS to endorse President Jared's eliminationist plans for the Palestinians.  I am still 100% sure that this whole kerfuffle was a Khazar attempt to replace MbS with someone who could move the Zionist agenda along with more vigor, but Plan B would be to weaken both the King and MbS so (((they))) can push them around more.

CIA involvement makes Trump's statement less about foreign affairs and more about a power struggle within the US government (Trump again siding against the American IC).

"Escobar: Erdogan, MbS, Islamic Leadership, & The Price Of Silence".  So I'm guessing the big deal will be the CIA gets to keep Gülen and other inmates of their asshole-storage farms in return for eating some shit in that there will be no repercussions for the death of its spy, the MbS jackboot will come off Turkey's friend Qatar (no more canal), and the Khazars will (again) cash in their shekels for continued US insanity about Iran and possibly a reversal of the King's veto of the plan of President Jared.

In notes between Steele's former employer, Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, and the former #4 official at the Justice Department, Bruce Ohr, Ohr writes "Much of the collection about the Trump campaign ties to Russia comes from a former Russian intelligence officer (? not entirely clear) who lives in the US," quoting Simpson. "
"Aspiring Actress Files Restraining Order Against Michael Avenatti" (Durden). I suspect he's good for it, but this has some earmarks of Republican ratfucking.

"Harper: Two Bolton Neocon Aides Are Ousted From The NSC".  Even by the standards of neocons, these were both vile monsters (and one seems to have gone on a royal whim of Melania), so there are some subtleties of power amongst the shekel-storm currently engulfing Washington.

Sheldon's installed a conveyor belt right into the Oval Office, to save poor Shlomo's back bent with having to have schlepped all those bags of shekels:  "US Sanctions Russian, Iranian Companies To Disrupt Oil Shipments To Syria" (Durden).  I'm not sure when we can announce we've reached Peak Jewing, but we're well on the way.

"How ‘The New York Times’ Deceived the Public on North Korea" (Shorrock) (even by the lofty millerian standards of the JYT . . .):
"But even a cursory analysis of the imagery should have raised questions. On Monday night, a Korean news outlet pointed out that all the photos analyzed in the CSIS report are dated March 29, 2018—almost two and a half months before Trump and Kim met in Singapore on June 12.
The dates make Sanger’s claim that North Korea is “moving ahead” on missile production after its pledges to Trump laughable; indeed, they make his story look like a serious attempt to deceive the American public about the real progress that has been made in ending the standoff."
"“Moral Hazard” vs Mutual Aid" (Hudson).  'Anti-Semitism' pops up in the comments to this piece published at Naked Capitalism!  Debt, by its very nature, just keeps piling up until it completely gums up your entire economy.  What are you going to do about it?

Tweet (Hanna Jonasson) (if I ever have cause to refer to her again - unlikely as she's lost her fucking mind - I'll call her 'FBI informer Marcy Wheeler', as that's what she has been reduced to!):
"Some journalists keenly cite FBI informer Marcy Wheeler's wild & eager speculations on EDVA's indictment. But indications so far in fact point to the indictment relating to 's case & revelations of US wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Cablegate, GITMO."

Shabbat scare

Sailer on the marching orders of the JYT:  "NYT: "Trump’s Border Stunt Is A Profound Betrayal Of Our Military"".  The funny thing is that this bizarre thinking is automatic - of course the American military can only be used to fight Wars For The Jews.  What else would you do with it?

It is completely clear now that the 'invasion' was a Republican stunt, replete with hat, and not a Soros stunt.  It seems to have worked.

"The Egregious Lie Americans Tell Themselves" (Bacharach).  One of the more obvious costs of all those Wars For The Jews.

"The Only Regime Change That Is Needed Is In Washington" (Giraldi) (on James Jeffrey, a spectacular pos even by Washington neocon standards):
"Actually, the only regime change that is needed is in Washington and it would include Jeffrey, Bolton, Haley, Pompeo, and Miller. And while we’re at it, get rid of son-in-law Jared Kushner and his claque of Orthodox Jews, Jason Greenblatt the “peace negotiator” and David Friedman the U.S. Ambassador in Israel.
None of them are capable of acting to advance any American national interest, which they wouldn’t recognize even if it hit them in the butt. Once they are gone the U.S. can bid the Middle East goodbye and leave its constituent nations to sort out their own problems.
Jeffrey’s ridiculous prescriptions for the Syrians and Russians are symptomatic of what one gets from a team of yes-men who have latched onto some dystopic ideas and pursued them relentlessly, blinded by what they believe to be American power. Someone should tell them that their antics have made that power a commodity that is dramatically depreciating in value, but it is clear that they are not listening."
The bizarre notion that the law applies to Khazars: "Registering Israel's Useful Idiots" (Giraldi).

'Terrorism':  "Blundering American ambassadors unmask the ‘War on Terror’" (Boyajian). On the strangeness that has occurred once the Israeli stinktanks decided that the fear of 'terrorism' had to replace the fear of commies as the main motivation of the goyim.

Another example of human beings working out peace while the 'Americans' seethe in the background, ignored as much as possible:  "Execution of Inter-Korean Summit Agreement in Military Sphere" (Asmolov).

"Afghanistan Takes Center Stage In The New Great Game" (Escobar):
"What matters most for China is Afghanistan becoming part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). That’s exactly what Chinese envoy Yao Jing told the opening session of the 4th Trilateral Dialogue in Islamabad earlier this week between China, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
 “Kabul can act as a bridge to help expand connectivity between East, South and Central Asian regions,” Jing said.
Pakistani Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed said: “The Greater South Asia has emerged as a geo-economic concept, driven by economy and energy, roads and railways and ports and pipelines, and Pakistan is the hub of this connectivity due to CPEC.”
For Beijing, CPEC can only deliver its enormous potential if Pakistan and India relations are normalized. And that road goes right through Afghanistan. China has been aiming for an opening for years. Chinese intel operatives have met the Taliban everywhere from Xinjiang to Karachi and from Peshawar to Doha.
The China card is immensely alluring. Beijing is the only player capable of getting along with all the other major actors: Kabul, the Taliban, the former Northern Alliance, Iran, Russia, Central Asia, the US, the EU, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and – last but not least – “all-weather” brothers Pakistan.
The only problem is India. But now, inside the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), they are all on the same table – with Iran and Afghanistan itself as observers.  Everyone knows that an Afghan Pax Sinica would involve tons of investment, connectivity and trade integration. What’s not to like?
So this is the ultimate goal of the ongoing Moscow peace talks. It’s part of a concerted SCO strategy that has been discussed for years. The long and winding road is just starting. A Russia-China-driven peace process, Taliban included. Stable Afghanistan. Islamabad as guarantor. All-Asian solution. No Western invaders welcome."
"Media Ignores Damage Stone’s Recovered Emails Do To Mueller Probe" (McNicoll):
". . . none of the reports mentioned that the messages Stone unearthed from an old telephone on Wednesday essentially end a line of inquiry that had become a central focus of the Mueller probe.
Mueller’s interest in Stone is based on the notion Stone received advance notice of the Wikileaks revelations from Russian sources, establishing a near-direct link between the Trump campaign and Russians seeking to influence the election.
The text messages Stone produced establish he learned what he knew of the Wikileaks revelations from Credico, a New York City radio host, who, according to Stone, got the information from Margaret Ratner Kunstler, a lawyer for Wikileaks and a close friend of Credico.
The Daily Caller, a conservative website, grasped the importance of the story.
“Stone, 66, reluctantly told the House Intelligence Committee in October 2017 that Credico was his back channel to WikiLeaks and Assange,” wrote Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller under the headline “Bombshell text messages support Roger Stone’s claims about Wikileaks Backchannel.”
“But he has claimed that he did not know the source or content of the Clinton campaign emails. Credico has adamantly denied being Stone’s conduit, saying in numerous interviews over the past year that Stone was lying.”
Credico has denied being Stone’s source for the information, and the two had engaged in what Ross called a “he said, he said” battle. Stone said Wednesday the texts, which his lawyers were able to obtain off a phone he stopped using in 2016, “prove that Credico was the source who told me about the significance of the material that Assange announced he had on Hillary.”"
The Clintonistas have been crowing that Stone was going to jail - "Roger Stone Is Running Out of Options" - but now it appears they'll have to try to get their revenge on the much less interesting Credico, who also did nothing wrong - "Roger Stone Contact Credico To Meet With Mueller Team After Thanksgiving".

"In Hollywood, the stars are out for the Israeli army" (Weiss/Miranda).  Thanks to shekels from both Saban and Adelson, not to mention the general 'Hollywood' corrupting!

"Malta 'identifies masterminds' of Daphne Caruana Galizia murder".

"Operation Temperer Exposed: UK Army's Secret Plan For Martial Law If 'No Deal' Brexit" (Durden).  Complaining about May's demonstrated utter incompetence is 'terrorism'.  It is still difficult to determine if this whole charade is intended to lead to a do-over referendum - following the normal practice of ignoring the will of the people in those few times when they slip up and allow it to be expressed - or whether May is legitimately this stupid.

"Jewish Students Applaud Canadian Federation of Students’ BDS Resolution". Bearing in mind that BDS is a Khazar trick . . .

"Trump’s jaded view of two world wars" (Madsen).  This is Madsen at his absolute worst, contentless, evidenceless #Resistance-style drivel, but he may be inadvertently pointing to the fact that on a deep level, Trump is indeed woke, and realizes that these celebrated wars - celebrated by exactly the people who want to use them as the template for the next one - were rackets.

That rascal Putin, weaponizing friendship and playing a new angle:  "Is Russia full-on supporting Hamas?" (Abu Amer).

"Netanyahu’s Ceasefire Is Meant to Keep Gaza Imprisoned" (Cook).  Cook uncharacteristically falls for the Israeli spin on the 'botched' Israeli commando mission.

"The Reason for Killing Iranians" (Hornberger).  'Regime change' from within.  You have to remember that this might be a trick on the Khazars, who have paid lots of good bribing shekels for a real war with American boots on the ground, but are being pawned off with (extremely) unlikely hopes of a new Iranian counter-revolution.

"Ecuador’s Soft Coup and Political Persecution" (Correa).  The South American pattern of getting the extreme right-wing government you want by extremely unconstitutional measures, so outrageous that people are taken aback, and flat-footed in responding, by the fact they had the nerve to try it.

"Report: Saudi royals turn on king's favourite son after killing".  Qatari mischief?  No, it's Rothschild mischief:  "sources close to the royal court told Reuters news agency".  Also:
"Senior US officials, meanwhile, have indicated to Saudi advisers in recent weeks they would support Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz - who was deputy interior minister for nearly 40 years - as a potential successor to King Salman, according to Saudi sources with direct knowledge of the consultations.

Amid international outrage over Khashoggi's murder, dozens of princes and cousins from powerful branches of the Al Saud family want to see a change in the line of succession, but will not act while King Salman - the crown prince's 82-year-old father - is still alive, sources said.

They recognise the king is unlikely to turn against his favourite son, the report added.

Rather, they are discussing the possibility with other family members that after the king's death Prince Ahmed, 76, uncle of the crown prince, could take the throne, according to the sources.

Prince Ahmed, King Salman's only surviving full brother, would have the support of family members, the security apparatus, and some Western powers, one of the Saudi sources said."
"El Al diverts flight after religious passengers cause uproar over Shabbat scare".  The riots were to get the planes to crash - or at least land! - before sunset, so all would be well.  Given everything that is done for them, it much be a bitch to mange that level of entitlement.

Unable to control your sadism

"The Iranian Albatross the US Has Hung Around Its Own Neck" (Crooke):
". . . the future axis of conflict in the region will not be as Trump and PM Netanyahu had hoped. It will be focused not on Iran, but will rotate towards a further round of conflict with the Muslim Brotherhood and its patrons – Turkey and Qatar. Some Gulf states are more frightened of Islamist Muslim Brotherhood dissidence within their emirates than they are frightened of Iran, which has no history of external state expansion. These anxieties are driving – and represent – the new regional re-alignment.
And these Gulf states, the UAE and Saudi, are fearful that Turkey – the old Ottoman imperial political power, and seat of the Islamic Umma – might just succeed in usurping Saudi Arabia’s Islamic credentials – as diminishing Saudi’s position as being no more than an inept Custodian of Mecca and Medina (the Turkish press is full of such claims). This would strip the Gulf of much of its significance and value to Washington. 

And whilst the Gulf has made its turn toward a quasi-secularism to please the West, Turkey has been quietly vacuuming up what there is of the Gulf’s discarded Islamic credibility in the form of a MB-style, ‘soft’ Islamism – and a very explicit neo-Ottoman revanchism, fueled by Turkey’s sense of being victim to a conspiracy led by Mohamed bin Zayed, the US and Israel.

Thus, the axis of the coming conflict is more likely to be that between a fearful Gulf, and an increasingly assertive Turkey, bidding for the leadership of the Islamic sphere. As for Iran, it can contemplate these events with sanguinity: Saudi being pressed to end its campaign against Yemen -and end its siege of Qatar. And, additionally, this new regional dynamic will only serve to push Turkey and Qatar closer to Iran.
None of this can be countered as promising for Mr Trump. Turkey will ‘lead’ on embracing the Palestinian cause (with Iran and Qatar in the rear), and MbS will lack the credibility or standing to lead any new ‘war’ against Iran after the disaster of Yemen, nor be able to coerce the Palestinians into capitulation in the face of the ‘deal of the century’. Even his near incapacitated father, as well as the al-Saud family, understand Netanyahu’s strategy to bury the ‘idea’ of a Palestinian state – and in any event, Bibi’s strategy is likely to be overtaken by internal politics, as Israel struggles with the implications of Lieberman’s resignation."
Long American interpretation of Iran and Soleimani, based, of course, on coarse falsehoods, but by a sophisticated analyst who is not stupid (note how much time the author spends on rationalizing some of the nonsense):  "Qassem Soleimani and Iran’s Unique Regional Strategy" (Soufan).  Although it may seem like the Americans haven't got a clue, useful information is available to them (particularly from non-neoconned professional sources, which still exist, even if deeply buried within the Pentagon).  They can't act on it because  . . .shekels.

"After Lebanon 2006, Syria 2011 And Iraq 2014, The “Arab NATO” And A Sunni-Shia War To Revive" (Magnier):
"All wars initiated or supported by the US establishment – from the occupation of Iraq in 2003, the second Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006, the regime-change in Syria in 2011 and the occupation of a third of Iraq in 2014 – have failed in their goal of stoking the fire of sectarian war between Sunni and Shia in the Middle East. The failure of this strategy has pushed the US establishment towards two new options: the first, of using media to reveal Saudi Arabia’s intention to harm the Iranian economy and assassinate its military commanders. The second is to promote and advertise for an “Arab (Sunni) NATO Army”. The goal is to keep the possibility of sectarian war alive.

The struggle for dominance between Saudi Arabia and Iran has been going on since the fall of the Shah and the victory of the Islamic Republic in 1979. Nevertheless, today’s level of direct confrontation in various parts of the Middle East (Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Bahrein and Yemen) is unprecedented. This is partly the result of US efforts to throw gasoline on the fire of hate and competition between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

It is against the interests of the US establishment to see the Iran-Saudi struggle wane because that would damage the US economy. Trump said clearly that he needs Arab money in exchange for the protection he is offering, otherwise “the Arab regimes won’t last for one week”. Accordingly, a state of non-war or non-competition between Tehran and Riyadh would significantly reduce the billions of dollars in US arms sales to Saudi."
There is nothing even slightly 'American' about this, it is pure Yinon.  A massive war in the Middle Eat would permanently ruin the American economy, and, as has been made clear, the Saudi arms contracts are either illusory or not that important.  Just as with the nonsense of 'wars for oil', 'wars for arms contracts' is the lie told to protect the real scoundrels.  Manipulating the Sunni-Shiite divide, though, is real, and has been the keystone of Zionism for years.

"A Singularly Semitic Scandal" (Langdon) (a reverse #metoo, with bizarre vehement calls not to listen to the victim, and an amazing component of violent nepotism, what's not to like?):
". . . no-one has taken account of an obvious and important fact: all four of the most important figures in the scandal are drawn from a single tiny ethnic minority. This is a singularly Semitic scandal, because Avital Ronell, Nimrod Reitman, Judith Butler and Jacques Derrida are all Jews. Indeed, Ronell and Reitman are both “of Israeli heritage.

But that is not the only reason that the scandal is singularly Semitic. The unhinged behaviour of both Ronell and Reitman casts an unforgiving light on Jewish psychology and on the strong Jewish tendency towards both megalomania and malice. Bernd Hüppauf, a German academic who worked at NYU and was ousted by Ronell after giving her a job there, offers this assessment of his nemesis in the left-wing journal Salon:
Before I offered Avital Ronell her job, I’d had many in-depth conversations with her. She engaged my queries with what seemed like understanding. She said she’d throw herself into the building of an integrated study and research program. She promised actively to contribute to department research, conferences and publications. Once she had assumed the position, however, she broke all her promises. She did her best to sabotage the program. She pursued one goal: The work of Avital Ronell and Jacques Derrida must be at the center of all teaching and research. Instead of an academic program, we were left with boundless narcissism. Once she’d become the head of the German department, she had her secretary announce in a departmental meeting that in the German department no student’s written work would any longer be acceptable unless it cited Derrida and Ronell. …

The quality of teaching in the department unraveled. The carefully planned program of teaching German literature was ignored. Many students arrived in the department with minimal knowledge of German literature or history. The courses that were meant to correct this no longer existed. Now philosophy, from Hegel to Judith Butler, was taught. But multidisciplinarity quickly deteriorated into dilettantism. Students were encouraged to take philosophy seminars at other universities. Soon, students who had learned about deconstruction and feminism in Paris, but who had no idea who Gottfried Benn, Joseph Roth and Alfred Döblin were, were no exception in the department. As one student told me, “We study in a German department where French theory is taught in English.” …

Included in Professor Ronell’s instruments of domination was the absolute control of information. Information streams were strictly controlled, and a thick net was spun that captured and distributed them as she saw fit. At a department meeting Professor Ronell let it be known through her secretary that no member of the department would be allowed to make contact with any dean at NYU without her (Professor Ronell’s) explicit consent. Soon after that, there were no more department meetings. Information was exchanged only in one-on-one conversations. Whoever did not belong to the inner circle had no access to information. …

I have saved a letter from a student who was close enough to Avital Ronell to study her in detail. He was an older student who had completed training as a psychotherapist. He had wanted to write his dissertation under her guidance. After one year, he gave up, disillusioned, and left the department. I quote from an E-mail he wrote to Professor Ronell:

From my interactions with you and observing you 
in various settings, you give the impression that you suffer from a well-known mental illness referred to as malignant narcissism in a borderline structure … There are clear clinical descriptions of sadistic object relations. You may get some sense of why your criticisms of students are so often felt to be destructive and disillusioning: you appear to be unable to control your sadism.
Hüppauf also notes that “squeezing me out wasn’t enough for Ronell. … At a public event she labeled me an anti-Semite. Not that she actually believed this smear. But the accusation, once uttered, was not easy to unhear, and since it fit into her political calculations, she had no scruples deploying it.” No scruples? Devious manipulation and power-grabbing? Surely those are classic “anti-Semitic” accusations. That they all seem to be perfectly true makes no difference in the modern world. Typhlism [“the practice of turning a blind eye to essential but inconvenient facts”] rules, remember.
But Ronell didn’t win all that power and control on her own. Just as she promoted Derrida’s and Butler’s work and reputation, so her friends promoted hers. In other words, the scandal also reveals the ethnic nepotism that has allowed Jews to dominate and corrupt certain fields in modern academia. I would say that Derrida, Butler, Ronell and Reitman are all intellectual charlatans who owe their success to ethnic nepotism and imposture. Judith Butler and Jacques Derrida, two giants of the modern humanities, have contributed nothing to serious scholarship, but enormous amounts to obscurantismand logorrhoea. Derrida’s philosophy is obscurantism, but with a strong ingredient of ethnic interests. As philosopher John Caputo puts it, “the idea behind deconstruction is to deconstruct the workings of strong nation-states with powerful immigration policies, to deconstruct the rhetoric of nationalism, the politics of place, the metaphysics of native land and native tongue” (here, p. 200). In other words, it is a philosophy which is useful in subverting the traditional peoples and cultures of the West, a common theme in Jewish intellectual activism in the diaspora."

"United States Budgetary Costs of the Post-9/11 Wars Through FY2019: $5.9 Trillion Spent and Obligated" (Crawford).  Hey, that land for the Khazars isn't going to steal itself!  Note that if Trump told Shlomo to schlep all the bags of shekels back today, and put a full stop to all the Wars For The Jews, even the ongoing cost of looking after the veterans - many traumatized by the horrors that they did to completely innocent victims, and many others permanently damaged by innocent people trying to defend themselves from their illegal/immoral actions - is incomprehensibly enormous, and won't end for decades.

"NY Times: Are Jared and Ivanka Good for the Jews?" (Wallace).  Are they good for Americans?  Are they good for humanity?

"Bin Salman 'tried to persuade Netanyahu to go to war in Gaza' say sources" (Hearst) (I'm guessing this is Iranian propaganda, but it is good Iranian propaganda, and might even be true):
"Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman attempted to persuade Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to start a conflict with Hamas in Gaza as part of a plan to divert attention from the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, sources inside Saudi Arabia have told Middle East Eye.

A war in Gaza was among a range of measures and scenarios proposed by an emergency task force set up to counter increasingly damaging leaks about Khashoggi's murder coming from Turkish authorities, according to sources with knowledge of the group's activities.

The task force, which is composed of officials from the royal court, the foreign and defence ministries, and the intelligence service, briefs the the crown prince every six hours, MEE was told.

It advised bin Salman that a war in Gaza would distract US President Donald Trump's attention and refocus Washington’s attention on the role Saudi Arabia plays in bolstering Israeli strategic interests.

It also advised bin Salman to “neutralise Turkey by all means” - including attempts to bribe Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan with offers to buy Turkish arms and statements by the crown prince attempting to shore up relations between Riyadh and Ankara."
"A political analyst in Israel with knowledge of Israeli government dealings with Saudi Arabia, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject, told Middle East Eye that Netanyahu was eager to help bin Salman and that it was "possible" that the Saudis had tried to persuade him to go to war in Gaza.

"But I don't think they succeeded," the analyst said. "If Netanyahu was acting upon some deal with bin Salman, he wouldn't have stopped after 48 hours, giving victory to Hamas and worse - in Saudi eyes - to the Qataris who just transfered money to the Hamas administration.

"It's evident that Netanyahu is eager to help bin Salman, but he is not ready to endanger, on MBS's behalf, the strategic asset that Hamas' rule over Gaza presents him.

"With Hamas in power and the consolidation of the division between Gaza and the West Bank, Netanyahu can continue with his primary goal: to prevent any option of an independent Palestinian state between the river and the sea. To achieve this goal, he is even ready to be humiliated by Hamas, as happened in the last round of violence.""

Curious late entry to the rodeo:  "Is CIA leak of Bin Salman’s guilt in Khashoggi Murder aimed at Kushner, or Trump himself?" (Cole).  Actually, I think it is aimed at putting a leash on MbS.

The JYT keeps up the pressure with a nice little documentary: "Killing Khashoggi: How a Brutal Saudi Hit Job Unfolded".

Peak Jewing:  "In first, US endorses Israeli occupation of Golan, votes against 9 anti-Israel resolutions".  Trump's unbelievable level of corruption has nothing to do with Russia, but the (((media))) will never mention it.

"Pompeo Reveals Trump-Era Confusion on Iran" (Maupin).  Pompeo is incoherent because it is impossible to describe the American position on Iran in terms of real American national interests, and he can't, of course, state the main reasons behind it, which are big bags of shekels schlepped by Shlomo to Trump and his Administration officials.  To a large extent, the point of #Russiagate is to hide the real high treason, which has been going on for decades, but has reached a fever pitch under Sheldon and other Khazar billionaires.

"How Trump’s Game of Chicken With Iran Could Weaken the Dollar’s Role as the World’s Currency" (Auerback).  Naked Capitalism always pooh-poohs the idea that world reserve currency status is in any jeopardy, so this is interesting.  Of course, loss of world reserve currency status would be the ultimate price to Americans and their empire of all those shekel bribes.

"Top Cheney Aide in Mueller’s Sights as Probe Expands" (Banco/Woodruff).  Investigating Zionist Central, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, would actually get to the real heart of the corruption.  Thus, this won't get very far!

"Middle East: Who is Actually Fighting Terrorism" (Mikhin).  The CIA seems to be rationalizing and consolidating its two terrorist wings, ISIS and al-Qaeda.

Ha!:  "US State Dept. Claims Assad Brought ISIS Into Syria, Admits US Has No Intention of Leaving Syria":
"Jeffrey opened his address by rattling off a series of lies – none of which were challenged by the mainstream media stenographer pool."
"Copy-Paste Error Reveals Assange Already Facing US Indictment"(Durden).  Almost certainly not an error but rather an attempt by somebody to warn Assange and his supporters.

From September:  "Speculation over fate of missing Dutchman linked to WikiLeaks" (Henley):
"A kayak believed to belong to Kamphuis, who advised governments, corporations, journalists and activists on information security, was pulled from the sea about 50km from Bodø on Thursday, police said, the day after an amateur fisherman found some of his belongings – reportedly including an ID card – floating in the water.

But mobile phone records show that 10 days after the Dutchman was seen leaving his hotel, both his work and personal mobile phones were briefly switched on – with German SIM cards inserted – more than 1,700km from the small northern town, at Vikeså near Stavanger."
"US, Britain Push Yemen Ceasefire as Tactic to Defeat Houthis" (Cunningham).

"Why Washington Blows Up over European Army":
"The irony is that now the French and German leaders are talking about setting up their own military defenses, Trump has blown a fuse.

Evidently, the American contention is not about “burden sharing” of defense. If Washington was genuinely aggrieved about supposedly defending Europe at too much of its own expense, then Trump, one would think, would be only too glad to hear that the Europeans were at last making their own military arrangements, and taking the burden off Washington.

This gets to the heart of the matter about the real purpose of NATO and presence of tens of thousands of US troops stationed in bases across Europe since 1945. American military presence in Europe is not about “protecting” its supposed allies. It is, and always has been, about projecting American power over Europe. In reality, American troops and bases in Europe are more functioning as an occupying force, keeping the Europeans in line with Washington’s strategic objectives of hegemony over the continent.

Macron and Merkel’s vision of a European army is probably fanciful anyway, without any real prospect of materializing. How such a new defense arrangement would work independently from the 29-member NATO alliance led by the US seems unwieldy and impractical.

But the latest tensions between Washington and European leaders over military organization demonstrate the real nature of America’s relationship to Europe. It is about domination by Washington over Europe and has little to do with partnership and protection.

When Trump and previous US presidents have urged greater military spending by Europe the ulterior agenda is for Europeans to pay more to underpin American military presence, not for Europeans to find their own independent defense arrangement."
"NATO’s Military Buildup along Russia’s Borders is No Joke, or is It?" (Berger) (my emphasis in red):
"Most journalists seem to agree that this senseless and comic saber-rattling was reminiscent of a blockbuster movie shooting rather than a military operation.
For instance, Der Spiegel found it rather comical that on top of erecting a platform for 300 guests, Norwegian journalists were broadcasting every stage of Trident Juncture live. In turn, the New York Times would report that ‘Cold War’ took a new meaning for US marines at these military games that Washington deemed to be extremely successful.
Although it is true that success may be measured in different ways and forms, it was of little concern for NATO commanders that the tasked force started losing ships without the opposition even showing on the horizon.
For instance, in the course of the military games Norway’s KNM Helge Ingstad collided with an oil tanker and sank. A total of eight sailors suffered severe injuries, while the crew of 138 men was forced to abandon the frigate in a bid to save their lives. It’s curious that Helge Ingstad was equipped with the Aegis combat system that should have been transmitting data from other ships and aerial vehicles to increase the survivability of the ship by increasing the situational awareness of its crew. Yet, this system has somehow managed to miss an oil tanker.
To make the matters worse, a report released by the Royal Canadian Navy states that a ‘minor fire’ broke out in a gas-turbine engine onboard HMCS Halifax in the course of Trident Juncture.
Further still, the Harry S.Truman carrier strike group had to abandon their allies in the height of an imaginary battle as its commander, rear admiral Eugene Black got overly concerned with a storm approaching the Northern Atlantic.
One can only imagine that if Russian forces would make their presence in the course of the exercise, the consequences could be far more disasterous for the formidable force assembled by Washington in Norway."

"Whose Money Stoked Religious Strife in Ukraine – and Who Tried to Steal It?" (Jatras) (watching the grifters grift each other reminds me of the novel by Cain, The Grifters):
"As reported by this analyst in October, according to an unconfirmed report originating with the members of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (an autonomous New York-based jurisdiction of the Moscow Patriarchate), in July of this year State Department officials (possibly including Secretary Pompeo personally) warned the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (also based in New York but part of the Ecumenical Patriarchate) that the US government was aware of the misappropriation of a large amount of money, about $10 million, from estimated $37 million raised from believers for the construction of the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine in New York. The State Department warning also reportedly noted that federal prosecutors have documentary evidence confirming the withdrawal of these funds abroad on the orders of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. It was suggested that Secretary Pompeo would “close his eyes” to this theft in exchange for movement by the Patriarchate of Constantinople in favor of Ukrainian autocephaly, which helped set Patriarch Bartholomew on his current course.
[Further details on the St. Nicholas scandal are available here, but in summary: Only one place of worship of any faith was destroyed in the September 11, 2001, attack in New York and only one building not part of the World Trade Center complex was completely destroyed. That was St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, a small urban parish church established at the end of World War I and dedicated to St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, who is very popular with Greeks as the patron of sailors. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, and following a lengthy legal battle with the Port Authority, which opposed rebuilding the church, in 2011 the Greek Archdiocese launched an extensive campaign to raise funds for a brilliant innovative design by the renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava based on traditional Byzantine forms. Wealthy donors and those of modest means alike enthusiastically contributed millions to the effort. Then – poof! In December 2017, suddenly all construction was halted for lack of funds and remains stalled to this day. Resumption would require having an estimated $2 million on hand. Despite the Archdiocese’s calling in a major accounting firm to conduct an audit, there’s been no clear answer to what happened to the money. Both the US Attorney and New York state authorities are investigating.]

This is where things get back to Ukraine. If the State Department wanted to find the right button to push to spur Patriarch Bartholomew to move on the question of autocephaly, the Greek Archdiocese in the US is it. Let’s keep in mind that in his home country, Turkey, Patriarch Bartholomew has virtually no local flock – only a few hundred mostly elderly Greeks left huddled in Istanbul’s Phanar district. (Sometimes the Patriarchate is referred to simply as “the Phanar,” much as “the Vatican” is shorthand for the Roman Catholic papacy.) Whatever funds the Patriarchate derives from other sources (the Greek government, the Roman Catholic Church, the World Council of Churches), the Phanar’s financial lifeline is the ethnic Greek community (including this analyst) in what is still quaintly called the “Diaspora” in places like America, Australia, and New Zealand. And of these, the biggest cash cow is the Greek-Americans.

That’s why, when Patriarch Bartholomew issued a call in 2016 for what was billed as an Orthodox “Eighth Ecumenical Council” (the first one since the year 787!), the funds largely came from America, to the tune of up to $8 million according to the same confidential source as will be noted below. Intended by some as a modernizing Orthodox “Vatican II,” the event was doomed to failure by a boycott organized by Moscow over what the latter saw as Patriarch Bartholomew’s adopting papal or even imperial prerogatives – now sadly coming to bear in Ukraine.

…and the Payoff

On top of the foregoing, it now appears that the State Department’s direct hand in this sordid business may not have consisted solely of wielding the “stick” of legal threat: there’s reason to believe there was a “carrot” too. It very recently came to the attention of this analyst, via an unsolicited, confidential source in the Greek Archdiocese in New York, that a payment of $25 million in US government money was made to Constantinople to encourage Patriarch Bartholomew to move forward on Ukraine.

The source for this confidential report was unaware of earlier media reports that the same figure – $25 million – was paid by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to the Phanar as an incentive for Patriarch Bartholomew to move forward on creating an independent Ukrainian church. Moreover, Poroshenko evidently tried to shortchange the payment:

‘Peter [Petro] Poroshenko — the president of Ukraine — was obligated to return $15 million US dollars to the Patriarch of Constantinople, which he had appropriated for himself.

‘As reported by Izvestia, this occurred after the story about Bartholomew's bribe and a "vanishing" large sum designated for the creation of a Unified Local Orthodox Church in Ukraine surfaced in the mass media.

‘As reported, on the eve of Poroshenko's visit in Istanbul, a few wealthy people of Ukraine "chipped in" in order to hasten the process of creating a Unified Local Orthodox Church. About $25 million was collected. They were supposed to go to the award ceremony for Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople for the issuing of a tomos of autocephaly. [A tomos is a small book containing a formal announcement.] However, in the words of people close to the backer, during the visit on April 9, Poroshenko handed over only $10 million.

‘As a result, having learned of the deal, Bartholomew cancelled the participation of the delegation of the Phanar – the residence of the Patriarch of Constantinople, in the celebration of the 1030th anniversary of the Baptism of Russia on July 27 in Kiev.

‘"Such a decision from Bartholomew's side was nothing other than a strong ultimatum to Poroshenko to return the stolen money. Of course, in order to not lose his face in light of the stark revelations of the creation of the tomos of autocephaly for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Peter Alexeevich [Poroshenko] had to just return those $15 million for the needs of Constantinople," a trusted source explained to reporters.

‘For preliminary information, only after receiving the remaining sum, did Bartholomew finally give his consent to sending a delegation of the Phanar to Kiev … ‘

Now, it’s possible that the two identical figures of $25 million refer to two different pots of money (a cool $50 million!) but that seems unlikely. It’s more probable the reports refer to the same sum as viewed from the sending side (the State Department, the Greek Archdiocese) and the delivery side (Poroshenko, Constantinople).

Lending credibility to the confidential information from New York and pointing to the probability that it refers to the same payment that Poroshenko reportedly sought to raid for himself are the following observations:

  • When Poroshenko generously offered Patriarch Bartholomew $10 million, the latter was aware that the full amount was $25 million and demanded the $15 million Poroshenko had held back. How did the Patriarch know that, unless he was informed via New York of the full sum?

  • If the earlier-reported $25 million was really collected from “a few wealthy people of Ukraine” who “chipped in,” given the cutthroat nature of disputes among Ukrainian oligarchs would Poroshenko (an oligarch in his own right) have risked trying to shortchange the payment? Why has not even one such Ukrainian donor been identified?

  • Without going into all the details, the Phanar and the Greek Archdiocese have a long relationship with US administrations of both parties going back at least to the Truman administration, encompassing some decidedly unattractive episodes. In such a history, a mere bribe for a geopolitical shot against Moscow would hardly be a first instance or the worst."
