The Transit of Hermes

Tweet (Dilma Rousseff) (the comments are almost all with the Generals, presumably reflecting the racial situation of Twitter in Brazil):
"Lula pour le Prix Nobel de la Paix! "
Tweet (Mark Weisbrot) (I keep seeing impressive tweets and statements from Khanna):
"More Courage from Congressman Ro Khanna , writing in Washington Post against the Trump regime change operation in Venezuela. Why are so many sitting on the sidelines as neocon extremists create chaos and destruction and prepare for another war?"
Tweet (Dan Cohen) (with Abrams running the show, and this, we're looking at another War For The Jews):
"Sadistic language from this former Obama aide. People are already dying in Venezuela as a result of US sanctions. Now wants a full lynching."
Tweet (Daniel McAdams):
"What would happen to an American politician who proclaimed himself president, openly accepted foreign money to set up a parallel government, and attempted to get the US military to join him in a violent overthrow? A hell of a lot more than an "investigation"!"

Times’ Support of U.S.-Backed Coups in Latin America" (Johnson).  "CNN Goes ‘Undercover’ To Manufacture Consent For Coup Attempt In Venezuela" (Gosztola).  "Venezuela: Guardian sparing neocon blushes" (Knightly).

"Why Is Justin Trudeau Backing Trump's Coup in Venezuela?" (interview with Engler):
"There’s a quote in terms of Canada’s role historically in terms of serving empire, and the fact that sometimes it’s better to have a sort of Canadian face on an intervention than a more sort of, more easily demonized U.S. face. In his biography, Jacques Chretien, a former prime minister, says quite explicitly that he told Bill Clinton that if we just go along with you in everything, we’re just going to be perceived as a 51st state. But if we, if it looks like we have a little bit of independence, we can do more for you than the CIA can do. And it was almost like–that’s a paraphrase, almost word for word. So there’s just this historic kind of putting a bit of a Canada, a positive Canada cover on policies that the U.S. is pursuing around the world.

And there’s a long history of that in the hemisphere beyond the example that Paul gave with regards to Afghanistan. In Haiti in 2004 Canada played a very important role in the overthrow of the elected government of Jean Bertrand Aristide. And again, there was Bill Graham, the former defense minister, said in a book about about the war in Afghanistan, he said that because Canada officially joined the coalition of the willing that invaded Iraq in 2003, they felt like they needed to not only go heavily into Afghanistan, but also participate significantly in the coup in Haiti.

So part of this Canadian policy in Venezuela today is about Canada’s close ties to the U.S. empire. And Canada, in my opinion, has been quite a beneficiary. The Canadian corporate class have been very much beneficiaries of U.S. empire for half a century. And the mining sector in Latin America is a big force, banking sector is a big force that partly explains Canadian policy there today."
"The US Aggression Against Venezuela as a Diagnostic Tool" (The Saker):
"Remember the almost universal reaction of horror when Bolton was appointed as National Security Advisor? Well, apparently, either the Neocons completely missed that, which I doubt, or they did what they always do and decided to double-down by retrieving Elliott Abrams from storage and appointing him US Special Envoy to Venezuela. I mean, yes, of course, the Neocons are stupid and sociopathic enough not to ever care about others, but in this case I think that we are dealing with a “Skripal tactic”: do something so ridiculously stupid and offensive that it places all your vassals before a stark choice: either submit and pretend like you did not notice or, alternatively, dare to say something and face with wrath of Uncle Shmuel (the Neocon’s version of Uncle Sam). And it worked, in the name of “solidarity” or whatever else, the most faithful lackeys of the Empire immediate fell in line behind the latest US aggression against a sovereign nation in spite of the self-evident fact that this aggression violates every letter of the most sacred principles of international law. This is exactly the same tactic as when they make you clean toilets with a toothbrush or do push-ups in the mud during basic training: not only to condition you to total obedience, but to make you publicly give up any semblance of dignity."
Assholians are all about the sanctity of 'the law' these days:  "Trump/Bolton Threatens ICC Judges: Senior Judge Resigns, Cites US Interference".

"Belarus Prostitute Admits She Fabricated Trump-Russia Evidence Claim" (Durden).  "Don Jr. is Next" (Anglin).  "An American Nightmare" (Napolitano).  "Mueller’s Indictments and James R. Clapper Jr." (Hornberger).

More than just shekels:  "Barbara Walters boasted of love affairs with Israel’s foreign and defense ministers while covering Camp David — former Carter aide".

You'd wonder why the Rothschilds would go after big Israel ally UAE, but it is to whitewash Israel out of the story, and blame it all on 'the Americans':  "Inside the UAE’s secret hacking team of American mercenaries" (Bing/Schectman) and "When 'Former' Spies Run Wild Bad Things Happen" (Moon).

"Gladio Redux – Europe Divided, Conquest to Follow?" (Greenhalgh).  I don't buy a lot of this, but the bomb is clearly Gladio-style 'strategy of tension' applied to deal with the Brexit 'backstop', no doubt by Remainers.

"Between a Rock and a Hard Place - Meng Extradition a No Win for Canada" (Donovan).  Freeland is simply too evil, and Trudeau too stupid, to hold their current positions.

"French President Macron visits the hangman of Cairo" (Morrow/Lantier).  Looking to the expert for hints on how to get away with ultra-violent ways to deal with big protests.

"“How Did Anyone Even Notice Me?”" (Thoresen review of "(((Semitism))): Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump" by Jonathan Weisman, which is basically all about the 'dialectic'):
"In the second chapter, which focuses largely on Israel, Weisman reveals the accuracy of even more of what White Nationalists and the Alt Right already know about Jews: that differences of opinion within the Jewish community exist only to the extent that opinions on what is best for Jews differ. He begins with the notorious Iran nuclear deal of 2015. Those Jews who supported it, Weisman included, were seen as traitors to Jewry. He frames this as a debate between two conceptions of Israel, one tribalist and one internationalist, but writes, “Embedded in both sides of the angry Jewish debate was the freighted question, Which camp supported Israel more?” (p. 72). This, then, is not really a debate between two conceptions of Israel, but rather between two conceptions of Jewish tribalism. Weisman believes that the focus on Israel among Jews residing in America has caused them to neglect their precarious situation here. Though this is not a new position, its advocates lost momentum following the Second World War. However, with America’s slavish devotion to Israel all but enshrined in the Constitution at this point, Weisman and others are even freer now to meddle in domestic affairs for the benefit of Jews without having to worry about being accused of dual loyalty. They can now claim a sort of impartiality with regard to Israel while knowing that it is safely in the hands of the American taxpayer. He writes, “American Jewry should be at least as focused on maintaining political support for Judaism in the United States as it is for sustaining Israel’s security” (p. 84). With Israel secure, Jews can focus even more on dominating American domestic policy and culture. And to do this, they have the perfect weapon."
A reminder of the three seminal Laurent Guyénot articles from the Unz Review:
  1. "Was Vietnam a Holocaust for Zion?";
  2. "Did Israel Kill the Kennedys?";
  3. "9/11 Was an Israeli Job".
In Dialectical engineering, I quoted the Vietnam piece (note that Unz also noted, though I now can't find where, something I never noticed since I wasn't 'woke' at the time I was reading them, that many of the early important writers on the JFK assassination, i.e., Brussell, were Jewish):
"Many of the leading figures of the anti-war movement were also Jewish. But soon after the leaking of the Pentagon Papers by Daniel Ellsberg, with the help of Anthony Russo, Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn (all Jewish by birth), other liberal Jewish intellectuals made a 180-degree turn and became leading advocate of the war: they called themselves “neoconservatives”. We have here a fine example of dialectical engineering of history: as Jewish leftists like Noam Chomsky started to protest against the war, former Jewish leftists like Irving Kristol started to protest against the protesters. Meanwhile, Israel could be pushed out of the headlines. Kristol wrote in the magazine of the American Jewish Congress in 1972 that it was necessary to fight against George McGovern’s proposal to reduce the military budget by 30 percent: “This is to drive a knife into the heart of Israel. […] Jews don’t like a big military budget, but it is now an interest of the Jews to have a large and powerful military establishment in the United States. […] American Jews who care about the survival of the state of Israel have to say, no, we don’t want to cut the military budget, it is important to keep that military budget big, so that we can defend Israel.”[20]

Against McGovern’s demand for immediate withdrawal from Vietnam, Kristol could have added: “American Jews who care about the survival of the state of Israel have to say, no, we don’t want to withdraw from Vietnam, it is important to pursue the genocide of the Vietnamese, so that America’s youthful idealists will protest against their own government rather than against Israel’s violation of international law.”"
"2019.01.26 Vietnam: How They Play(ed) Us" (Morrissey) or "Vietnam: How They Play(ed) Us", and its comments.  Long but worthwhile.

"Sure, Donald – Let’s Go Ahead and Go to War with Iran Too. Fuck It. Might as Well at This Point." (Anglin):  "The fuck is this shit?"
