Anthropocene

Gosh, we're getting a lot of The Clarification.

Here's the monster AOC, replete with leftish mumbo-jumbo, laid on suffocatingly thick (Americans Assholians don't seem to get the simple fact that if their 'leftist' politicians get Venezuela wrong, their 'socialism' is also a fraud):  tweet (Ben Norton):
"This is an outrageously misinformed statement, . The problem in Venezuela is not a "failure of democracy" from the government; it's a violent right-wing US-backed opposition that has dropped all pretense of wanting democracy and demanded a coup and war"
Here's the monster Bernie (also):  tweet (Jose Rios):
"“Saudi Arabia Venezuela, you know they are pretty much the same thing”"
Hopkins calls Bernie out for running the same 'socialism' scam again and again.  He has some good policies, but he throws them out there just as the placeholder who will lose so the policies have no chance.  "The Magic Socialist".  It's good that Venezuela gave him the chance to so thoroughly out himself as a monster.  Of course, he's a Khazar, so QED.

Here's Pierre-employee-of-the-month Greenwald trying to say Bernie just has a messaging problem!

"The Global Left and the Danger of a Dirty War in Venezuela" (Koerner).  The fucking 'global left' is of no fucking use at all - the only thing that will save Venezuela is Trump's basic common sense about the stupidity of fighting wars, if in fact that common sense exists.

They all pretty much work for the Koch Brothers.  Tweet (Mark Ames):
"The three leading DC advocates for Venezuela regime-change happen to be Koch Cartel's three stooges: Rubio, Pence, Pompeo. Related: Koch Cartel wants to wet its beak again on Venezuelan oil, fertilizers & petrochemical products"
"The Koch Brothers’ Top Political Operative Just Went to Work for Marco Rubio" (Choma). Are they anticipating that Trump won't run again?

Tweet (Aaron Maté):
"It's wrong to confine opposing Trump on Venezuela just to hypothetical military intervention: a devastating economic war is being waged. That's uncomfortable for Dems because Obama paved the way (), but that makes it all the more of an obligation to oppose."
The entire Assholian political spectrum, from extreme right to extreme left, goes from the Koch Brothers all the way across to . . . the Koch Brothers.

The Brits pop up out of the blue with a random swipe at Hezbollah (if you are going to be out of politics soon, it's wise to build your shekel collection while you can):  "Has the Elite’s Slavish pro-Israel Agenda Finally Gone Too Far?" (Murray).

"Hassan Nasrallah about Hezbollah’s Precision Missiles: Netanyahu is Lying to his People".  If he's going to hit the (Khazar-run) comedy club circuit, he's going to have to work on his jokes.

"Israel Burying ‘Nuclear Waste With Radioactive Content’ in Golan – UN Report".

I wonder if the Australians were reminded by recent British discussion of de-passporting of ISIS 'brides', that such actions are completely illegal (although he appears to have had the passport for some months, with only the revelation coming out now):  "Shifting the Centre of Gravity: Julian Assange Receives His Passport" (Kampmark).  We're reached the curious point where the Russians and Chinese scrupulously follow international law, and the 'West' breaks it every time it can, as a matter of principle (one of the main reasons being that international law, by not supporting Khazar supremacist murder and land theft, is inherently 'anti-Semitic').

Corbyn's commitment to principles - in this case, his righteous hatred of the Eurotrash - has been his main strength (despite shakiness on the 'anti-Semitism' scamming of the Khazar group supremacists, part of their never-ending anti-gentilism), so this is disturbing:  "People’s Vote: Corbyn Signs His Own Death Warrant" (Knightly).

Also disturbing:  "Iran's FM Zarif Abruptly Resigns Just As Assad Makes First Visit To Iran Since War's Start".

"Attacking Iran" (Giraldi).  On the bizarre recycling by the neocons of the same alleged (and ridiculous) al-Qaeda connection that the concentration camp guard used as a casus belli for the illegal Assholian attack on Iraq.  Just at the time when al Qaeda just attacked and killed a large number of Iranian soldiers!

"Mr Bolton’s Long Game Against Iran – Pakistan Becomes Saudi Arabia’s New Client State" (Crooke) (read the whole thing, but MbS just bailed out Pakistan and it is part of a plan):
". . . there are credible reports that ISIS fighters in the Deir a-Zoor area of Syria are being ‘facilitated’ to leave East Syria (reports suggest with significant qualities of gold and gemstones) in a move to Afghanistan.

Iran has long been vulnerable in its Sistan-Baluchistan province to ostensibly, secessionist factions (supported over the years by external states), but Iran is vulnerable, too, from neighbouring Afghanistan. Iran has relations with the Taliban, but it was Islamabad that firstly ‘invented’ (i.e. created) the Deobandi (an orientation of Wahhabism) Taliban, and which traditionally has exercised the primordial influence over this mainly Pashtoon grouping (whilst Iran’s influence rested more with the Tajiks of northern Afghanistan). Saudi Arabia of course, has had a decades long connection with the Pashtoon mujahidin of Afghanistan.

During the Afghan war of the 1980s and later, Afghanistan always was the path for Islamic fundamentalism to reach up into Central Asia. In other words, America’s anxiety to achieve a permanent presence in Afghanistan – plus the arrival of militants from Syria – may somehow link to suggest a second motive to US thinking: the potential to curb Russia and China’s evolution of a Central Asian trading sphere and supply corridor.

Putting this all together, what does this mean? Well, firstly, Mr Bolton was arguing for a US military ‘hub’ in Iraq – to put pressure on Iran – as early as 2003. Now, he has it. US Special Forces, (mostly) withdrawn from Syria, are deploying into this new Iraq military ‘hub’ in order, Trump said, to “watch Iran”. (Trump rather inadvertently ‘let the cat out of the bag’ with that comment).

The detail of the US ‘hub encirclement’ of Iran, however, rather gives the rest of Mr Bolton’s plan away: The ‘hubs’ are positioned precisely adjacent to Sunni, Kurdish, Baluch or other Iranian ethnic minorities (some with a history of insurgency). And why is it that US special forces are being assembled in the Iraqi hub? Well, these are the specialists of ‘train and assist’ programmes. These forces are attached to insurgent groups to ‘train and assist’ them to confront a sitting government. Eventually, such programmes end with safe-zone enclaves that protect American ‘companion forces’ (Bengahazi in Libya was one such example, al-Tanaf in Syria another).

The covert element to the MESA programme, targeting Iran, is ambitious, but it will be supplemented in the next months with new rounds of economic squeeze intended to sever Iran’s oil sales (as waivers expire), and with diplomatic action, aimed at disrupting Iran’s links in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq."
"SITREP France: Is Macron a puppet and, if yes, whose puppet is he?"  Note the comment that he is obviously on something.

"Kamala Harris told AIPAC she backs Israel because of civil rights struggle on Pettus Bridge, 1965" (Weiss).  The usual Clintonista fix is in for Harris, but I wonder if she is actually smart enough to pass the usual muster by the Powers That Be to be an American President.  It's what you get if your impressive skillz are bedroom related.

"This Map Shows a Trillion-Dollar Reason Why US is Backing Terrorism in Western China" (Cartalucci).  Roth amusingly nails what he is actually up to.

No stars for the Jewish Film Awards.  Something I've been pondering which may explain the ridiculous level of incompetence in 'Hollywood', is the completely new emergence of Netflix, etc, and their requirement for literally hundreds and hundreds of scripted televisions shows.  Actors aren't the problem - you can train actors, and the standards of acting are now quite high.  What you can't train is excellence in writing and directing, and the talent is now spread so thin that all 'Hollywood' can come up with is pure crap.

"Anthropocene".  "The Anthropocene Project".  "The Anthropocene Project".  The Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been taking photographs of this awful, but stunningly beautiful/sublime, shit for years before they had a name for it.
