Tit-for-tat

"Venezuela Aid Trucks Set Ablaze As Maduro Tells Trump: "Yankee, Go Home"" (Durden).  If you read the (((media))) coverage of this, it is all written in the passive voice - 'aid trucks were set on fire' - as the trucks were set ablaze while they were still fully under control of the Colombians, at a time when crossing the border was hopeless but they still wanted to create a minor false flag, but the (((media))) wants you to think Maduro did it to hurt his own people!

"Venezuela - No More Than 20,000 People Came To Branson's Concert Stunt" (Moon).  All in all, a hopeless day or two for Abrams and Bolton.  Btw, Branson is one of those 'self-made' guys who mysteriously became a billionaire, starting in media and music (influence over young people), and is thus almost certainly a creature of British intelligence.

"Venezuela: An Open Letter to the UN Secretary General" (de Zayas).

"Charging into Venezuela – Disastrous Overstretch for US" (Sieff).

"Canadian military in Haiti. Why?" (Engler).  No mention in the House of Commons, and none of the other parties are the least bit curious.

"Red Cross denounces unsanctioned use of its emblems to smuggle US aid to Venezuela".  "Venezuela: Red Cross Denounces ZOG For Using Their Symbols On Terrorist Supply Trucks" (Cicero):
"Maybe my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I seem to remember voting for Donald Trump at least partially because he promised an end to these foreign wars that have killed hundreds of thousands at the very least, cost trillions of dollars, and do nothing except trigger migrant floods into both America and Europe.

I don’t exactly remember cheering at the thought of a mentally deranged White guy (Bolton) and a scheming Jew (Abrams) smuggling weapons to random South American rebels in trucks painted up to resemble a medical convoy."
"Mike Pompeo: US Will “Take Action” In Support of Venezuelan Democracy" (Wallace).  Collection of lying tweets by various Assholians.

Bibi called all Poles Nazis and the Poles found out about it, a problem which needs fixing:  "Concern as Soros-Backed Ventures Buy Major Polish Media Group".

"Pentagon Says Multinational Force to Establish ‘Safe-Zone’ in Northeastern Syria" (South Front). Late Yinon.  Even by the standards of Wars For The Jews, this is going to be a particularly ignoble venture in which to die.

"Black NATO Troops Feel Unwelcome in Estonia" (Batty).  Read down to the part where you find out that Russia was behind it all!

As usual, we wait, perched on the edges of our seats, to see if the Eurotrash can put down the bribes long enough to take steps to prevent nuclear annihilation of Europe (the Warsaw debacle was a small, encouraging sign of sanity and self-preservation):  "Pepe Escobar: Memo from Moscow" (Escobar).  When the few survivors raise the guillotines for the Eurotrash, they can't day they weren't warned.  Escobar/Dugin/Crooke!:
"The day before Putin’s state of the union address I went to visit Alexander Dugin at his office in the deliciously Soviet, art nouveau building of the former Central Post Office. Dugin, a political analyst and strategist with a refined philosophical mind, is vilified in Washington as Putin’s ideologue. He has also been targeted by US sanctions.
I was greeted in the lobby by his multi-talented daughter Daria – active in everything from philosophy and music to geopolitics. Dugin was being interviewed by RAI correspondent Sergio Paini. After the wrap-up, the three of us immediately engaged in a discussion on populism, Salvini, the Italian politician, and the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests in France), in Italian. (Dugin is fluent in many languages).
Then we picked up on what we had left behind, when I was in Moscow last December and talked extensively with Daria. Dugin was in Shanghai teaching an international relations course at Fudan University (see here and here), and gave lectures at Tsinghua and Peking University. He returned quite impressed by Chinese academia’s interest in populism, plus German philosopher Martin Heidegger and the Gilets Jaunes, as well as the evolving paths of Russia and China’s strategic partnership.
So inevitably we delved into Eurasianism – and strategies towards Eurasian integration. Dugin sees China applying a sort of remixed Spykman outlook to the “Road” component of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which is maritime, along the rimland. He privileges the “Belt” component, which is overland, with one of the main corridors going through Russia via the upgraded Trans-Siberian railway. I tend to view it as a mix of Halford Mackinder, the famed English academic, and the influential American political scientist Nicholas Spykman; China advancing on the West, simultaneously in the heartland and the rimland.
Dugin’s office has the atmosphere of a revolving think tank. I was trying to inform him on how Brazil – under the ‘leadership’ of Steve Bannon, who walks and talks like he runs the Bolsonaro presidential clan – has been dragged to the frontline in the US in contrast to the Eurasian integration chessboard. Suddenly, none other than Alastair Crooke drops in. Serendipity or synchronicity? 
Alastair, with his consummate diplomatic flair, is, of course, one of the world’s foremost experts in the Middle East and Europe – and much else. He’s in Moscow as a guest for one of the Valdai Club’s famed discussions, on the Middle East, along with key figures from Syria and Iran.
Soon the three of us are engaged in an absorbing conversation on the soul of Islam, the purity of Sufism, the Muslim Brotherhood (those fabled friends of the Clinton machine), what President Erdogan and the Qataris are really up to, and the sterility – intellectual and spiritual – of the Wahhabi House of Saud and the Emirates.
We tend to agree that discussions like this, going on in Moscow – and in Tehran, Istanbul, Shanghai – would greatly profit from the presence of a progressive Steve Bannon, capable of organizing and promoting a running, non-ideological debate on multipolarity.
A day before Putin’s stark reminder against any slip towards nuclear Armageddon, we were also discussing the post-INF world, but with emphasis on post-Mackinder (and post-Brzezinski) Eurasian integration. And that includes Russian and Chinese intellectual elites acutely aware that they can’t afford to be isolated by American hyperpower.
I walked Alastair to his hotel, past a gloriously illuminated Bolshoi. I kept going, and as Lubyanka disappeared from view, a sidewalk busker was playing ‘House of the Rising Sun’, the Animals version. In Russian.
Hopefully, it will not feature a rising nuclear sun."
Excellent:  "The Hunt for Konstantin Kilimnik" (Stryker).  Kilimnik is the 'Russian' great white whale to the Clintonista Ahabs, the last possible thin strand to 'collusion', with the only tiny problem being he's Ukrainian, like all the thugs and gangsters Manafort dealt with.

"Can AIPAC sell Netanyahu’s Kahanist Terrorists to Middle America?" (Cole).  It's the benjamins Euros baby:  "Leading Israel lobby group sees massive rise in budget" (Cronin).  The JQ isn't new (but back then, the Saudi royals were still pretending not to be cryptos):  "Spiro Agnew And The Saudi Royal Family — Peas In An Anti-Semitic Pod" (Worthington).

"US lawmakers bully Ireland over move to ban Israel’s settlement goods" (Tierney). See another example, with gloating over the success of the bullying:  "BDS Suffers Humiliating Reversal in Iceland" (Lieberman).

"Bari Weiss clumsily regurgitates old hasbara talking points" (Samel).  Weiss is another example of the perils of the main identifying feature of the Khazars, extreme nepotism, and what happens when the second and third generations take their promotions through the system for granted.

"France to criminalize anti-Zionism" (Abunimah). The Rothschilds really have this ultra-pervert over a barrel, and the people of France know it.

Shekels to the strongmen for 'diversified' support as Americans get woke (come to think of it, it is identical to how American support has been obtained!):  "Now Chad, then Mali: Why African Countries Are Normalizing with Israel" (Baroud). "Israel opens first ever embassy in Rwanda".

"NPR reporter defends one-sided report on Ilhan Omar" (Weir).  NPR has to lie constantly to keep from being wound up, which of course makes you wonder why anybody would oppose having it wound up.

""Elizabeth Warren Opens Door To Reparations For Native Americans"—Does She Qualify Under Her Own Plan?" (Sailer).  The first day of fundraising Bernie raised almost 6 million; Warren got two blankets dipped in smallpox from a donor named D. Trump.  I laugh, but some of her economic ideas are quite good - too bad she's such a hapless candidate.
