Priceless state-stabilization experiences

Must read of the day:  "Comments on Official Response by OPCW to the Engineering Assessment on Douma" (McKeigue/Miller/Mason/Robinson):
  • "Other journalists who have been in touch with us have told us that their stories were spiked by editors."
  • on the obvious program of leaks to friendly liars journalists NATO employees:  "It is likely that (at least on this occasion) Lucas and Whitaker are telling the truth, and that they have been briefed by someone with close knowledge of how the FFM Final Report was prepared. If these briefings had not been authorised, OPCW Public Affairs could easily have responded to Hitchens’s question with a standard statement reiterating that “there is no further public information on this matter” and that this extended to off-the-record briefings. We would expect OPCW press officers to be reluctant to issue further statements that could subsequently be shown to be false.

    Like cellular biologists who perturb a complex system and measure its outputs, we can infer from these observations the existence of a pathway. This pathway connects the production of OPCW reports on alleged chemical attacks in Syria with a network of communicators in the UK who in different ways have promoted the cause of regime change in Syria since 2012. It is evident that Lucas and Whitaker are output nodes of this pathway. From August 2012, Whitaker as the Guardian’s Middle East editor promoted Higgins from obscure beginnings as a blogger to become a widely-cited source on the Syrian conflict. Whitaker was the first journalist to devote an article to attacking the Working Group, in February 2018 when its only collective output had been a brief blog post.

    It is of course possible that OPCW management for some procedural reason was unable to provide further information on the record, and sought to disseminate an accurate version of events via off-the-record briefings. But the choice of such highly partisan commentators as Lucas and Whitaker as channels inevitably calls into question the good faith of whoever provided these briefings, and undermines any remaining pretence to impartiality on the part of OPCW management."
  • "A useful way to take forward the investigation of the Douma incident would now be for the Syrian government to invite an international team of neutral experts to examine the cylinders, to assess whether the observations support the findings of the Engineering Assessment or the conclusions of the published FFM Final Report, and to publish their findings in a form that allows peer review and reproducibility of results from data. The next step would be a criminal investigation of this incident, focusing on where, how and by whom were the 35 victims seen in images at Location 2 killed."
Whitaker thinks the Syrians should let these liars in for another PR production! "‘Not even White Helmets confirm it’: Russian MoD rubbishes Washington’s Syria chemical attack claims".

"Robert Stuart vs the BBC" (Dirgham/Sterling).

This stuff is yuge, yet the (((media))) just wants to whine about Putin spreading memes:  "Trump’s trade war has probably permanently damaged America’s tech leadership position" (Knapp)"
"Nothing Trump does can likely put Huawei out of business. He can temporarily hurt it, but he can’t permanently kill it. The most momentous effect of his order is to put Huawei on notice that it must not, under any circumstances, ever again find itself at the mercy of US suppliers and of the US government’s good will.

If Trump “wins” his trade wars, will Huawei go back to using the US suppliers it was just cut off from? That’s very unlikely. Once bitten, twice shy.

Other global tech companies and other governments are watching, and unless they’re stupid they’re drawing the same conclusions. If it can happen to Huawei, it can happen to them. No matter the immediate outcome, Trump’s stunt has done irreparable long-term damage to global trust in America’s tech giants.

As for those American companies if they’re smart, they’re already looking into what it will take to move their executive functions, and as much of their operations as possible, offshore, for the same reasons. They’re in business to make money, not to serve the whims of economically illiterates like Donald Trump."
The (((media))) loves this as it represents American belligerence, and American belligerence is part of the way of looking at the world that Irving Kristol identified as being 'good for the Jews'.  It is simply incredible the price tag Americans seem prepared to pay for having a terminal case of the Jews. There is something funny about Trump doing real, permanent, irreparable harm to the US, while he is criticized for ridiculous issues of style, or even better, for the few things he does right.

"Bolton Says "No Doubt" Iranian Naval Mines Used In UAE Tankers Sabotage" (Durden).

"Perry’s Attack on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 and the Empire’s Lost Grip on Reality" (Ehret). A serious question - do you think Perry's IQ is under or over 85?  He's an inspiration, proof that even the stupidest retards can rise to positions of great power.

"Sanctions Or Sucking Up? US Grovels In Ukraine" (Luongo):
"Everywhere you look Trump is lashing out at whoever he thinks he can gain leverage over to force concessions for US interests. But all he is doing is making it clear to everyone that the dollar now carries unacceptable political risk to carry on their company’s balance sheet.
And it will only further lower the barrier both economically and politically to shift away from using it leaving the US ever more isolated. And the fact that this is happening over such a small thing like a pipeline and a failed state like Ukraine makes everyone involved look desperate and pathetic."
"Stefan Halper, the FBI's Rat F****r? by Larry C Johnson".  I think the Swamp will have to settle this case before discovery, as the kind of things that will come out will not look good at all.

"The Campaign to Paint Trump as a Russian Stooge Started on May 4, 2016 by Larry C Johnson":
"Here is what I think really happened.
Seth Rich, a DNC employee and Bernie Sanders supporter, downloaded the emails and then gave them to Wikileaks. Rich was in contact with Wikileaks. That is not my opinion. We know that courtesy of a FOIA request by lawyer Ty Clevenger to the NSA filed in November 2017, who requested any information regarding Seth Rich and Julian Assange. The NSA informed Clevenger in a letter dated 4 October 2018 that:
Your request has been processed under the provisions of the FOIA. Fifteen documents (32 pages) responsive to your request have been reviewed by this Agency as required by the FOIA and have found to be currently and properly classified in accordance with Executive Order 13526. These documents meet the criteria for classification as set forth in Subparagraph © of Section 1.4 and remains classified TOP SECRET and SECRET.”
Former NSA Technical Director, William Binney commented on this revelation:
Ty Clevenger has FOIAed information from NSA asking for any data that involved both Seth Rich and also Julian Assange. And they responded by saying we’ve got 15 files, 32 pages, but they’re all classified in accordance with executive order 13526 covering classification, and therefore you can’t have them.
That says that NSA has records of communications between Seth Rich and Julian Assange. I mean, that’s the only business that NSA is in — copying communications between people and devices.
We already know, as noted above, that the CIA had a task force set up. I believe this intelligence was communicated to the Clinton campaign and that a bogus story, with Crowd Strike in a starring role, was cooked up. Implausible? Not as implausible as a supposed cracker jack cyber security company waiting almost six weeks before taking common sense steps to shut down and clean the DNC servers.
It was Crowd Strike with the help of the Washington Post that went public and pinned the blame on the Russians.
But that was not the only active measure in place. Christopher Steele, a fully signed up FBI informant, was hired by Fusion GPS and produced his first block buster report on June 20thclaiming Trump was under the thumb of Vladimir Putin."
The uncovering of the attempted coup has revealed some strange artifacts, including Marshall's attempts to get in front of it for his suddenly in peril Clintonista pals:  "The Other Shoe Dropping".

"Taken together, the prevailing trend is that Russia has been so wildly successful in implementing its low-cost and low-commitment “Democratic Security” model in CAR that many other African countries are now more than eager to have Moscow share its priceless state-stabilization experiences with them in exchange for valuable extraction contracts, which could lead to Russia becoming the vanguard defender of their Silk Roads."

"Far from solving the Palestine-Israel conflict, the US ‘deal’ will take it to an unimagined level" (Balawi):
"There is a bright side to this tragedy, though; we no longer have to believe in the myth of the left-wing coloniser and the liberal Zionist. According to Professor Ilan Pappé, it is such people who have shielded Israel for the past seven decades and convinced many in the Western world that you can colonise someone else’s land and be good at the same time.

Now we hear no more talk about the “two-state-solution”, and that there is such a thing as a “peace process” which is yet to deliver a miraculous solution that is going to please everyone. From now on it will be crystal clear to Arabs, Muslims and everyone else who cares, who their enemy is and who is cooperating with it in order to facilitate its plans in our region. It is those Arab and Muslim regimes who have thus far used lame excuses to evade their responsibility towards the Holy Land and the Palestinian people which will, shamefully, be exposed.

Just when the Americans think that they have liquidated the Palestinian cause and its legitimacy, they are actually taking the conflict into a new era. Far from solving the Palestine-Israel issue, the US “deal of the century” will take it to an unimagined level, with consequences that Washington never even thought could exist."

At some point it is just territory marking:  "Britain doesn’t need another Holocaust memorial" (Alderman).  All these monstrosities will have to be taken down, or turned into remembrances of the Nakba, the Wars For The Jews, and other vile incidents of anti-gentilism, the scourge of our time.

Surprisingly, Bibi is having trouble forming a government out of all the Judeo-Nazis he has to choose from:  "Why Israeli Gov’t May Fall: Like US, Secularists and Fundamentalists are Polarized" (Cole).  "Netanyahu and Lieberman's Political Fight Just Got Out of Hand" (Hecht).

The Assholians are rapidly running out of 'friends' prepared to allow themselves to be used as a launching pad for yet another War For The Jews:  "The geography of war: No Iraq…? No Iran!" (Redmayne-Titley).

On the other hand, Pakistan is looking very good, and seems to have the skills to manage relationships with both Iran and China.  "Iran’s Relations with India and Pakistan. Couldn’t Be More Different" (Korybko).
