For No Reason

"Zarif reminds Trump: Did you know Netanyahu pushed you into Afghan war, too?"  From September 10.  I wonder if this comment got through to Trump.  "Trump Gives Anti-Semitic Press Conference Says Middle East Wars “For No Reason”" (Anglin):
"At a press conference today, Donald Trump said that the wars in the Middle East were a mistake and that he doesn’t have a responsibility to found a new democracy for the Kurds.
“The worst mistake the United States has ever made is going into the Middle East… it’s a quagmire,” said this orange individual.
This virulent statement is a direct attack on the identity of the Jews people – God’s precious chosen ones.
We all know that these wars in the Middle East were to protect Israel.
It is hatred of the worst sort, inspired by a dark evil.
For the orange man to say such hate-filled things in the aftermath of the tragedy in Germany – it’s unthinkable.
In other news, Joe Biden is calling for this hate-filled orange individual to be impeached over his conspiracy to investigate the brutal corruption of Joe Biden and his son.
It’s about time that a man of noble honor stood up to the villain Trump, and Joe Biden is just the honorable man we’ve been searching for.
Biden is just the man that the Kurds need to elect to form a new country for them inside of the borders of Syria, Iraq and Turkey.
This is why I believe Joe Biden will win the 2020 elections of Kurdistan."

"Russia controls Syrian skies: Possible coordination for Turkish ops in NE Syria in progress. RuAF Tupolev 134AK brought top brass & military airspace coordinators to Ankara. Russia has a direct hot line with Turkey to prevent unintentional air incidents in the Syrian airspace."

"Tracking foreign interference in Hong Kong" (Escobar). I should note that after the 'Hello Newman' re-education office ("Letter: 62 Duke faculty respond to Department of Education directive"), and the Sanctions For The Jews office, an undisguised division of the Mossad, the NED is the most consistently Jewed-up operation in Washington, and has been since it was created (and given the grim realities of ZOG, that's really saying something).

"The Anglo-American Origins of Color Revolutions & NED" (Ehret) (a little too LaRouchian for me):
"Contrary to popular opinion, the British Empire did not go away after WWII, nor did it hand over the “keys to the kingdom” to America. It didn’t even become America’s Junior Partner in a new Anglo-American special relationship. Contrary to popular belief, it stayed in the drivers’ seat.
The post WWII order was largely shaped by a British coup which didn’t take over America without a fight. Nests of Oxford-trained Rhodes Scholars, Fabians and other ideologues embedded within the American establishment had a lot of work ahead of them as they struggled to purge all nationalist impulses from the American intelligence community. While the most aggressive purging of patriotic Americans from the intelligence community occurred during the dissolution of the OSS and creation of CIA in 1947 and the Communist witch hunt that followed, there were other purges that were less well known.
As an organization which was beginning to take form which was to become known as the Trilateral Commission organized by Britain’s “hand in America” called the Council on Foreign Relations and international Bilderberg Group, another purge occurred in 1970 under the direction of James Schlesinger during his six month stint as CIA director. At that time 1000 top CIA officials deemed “unfit” were fired. This was followed nine years later as another 800 were fired under a list drafted by CIA “spymaster” Ted Shackley. Both Schlesinger and Shackley were high level Trilateral Commission members who took part in the group’s 1973 formation and fully took power of America during Jimmy Carter’s 1977-1981 presidency which unleashed a dystopian reorganization of American foreign and internal policy outlined in my previous report.
By the 1970s, the CIA’s dirty hand funding anarchist operations both within America and abroad had become too well known as media coverage of their dirty operations at home and abroad spoiled the patriotic image which the intelligence community then desired. While the internal resistance to fascist behaviour from within the intelligence Community itself was dealt with through purges, the reality was that a new agency had to be created to take over those functions of covert destabilization of foreign governments.
What became Project Democracy herein originated with a Trilateral Commission meeting in May 31, 1975 in Kyoto Japan as a protégé of Trilateral Commission director Zbigniew Brzezinski named Samuel (Clash of Civilizations) Huntington delivered the results of his Task Force on the Governability of Democracies. This project was supervised by Schlesinger and Brzezinski and presented the notion that democracies could not function adequately in the crisis conditions which the Trilateral Commission was preparing to impose onto America and the world through a process dubbed “the Controlled Disintegration of Society”.
The Huntington report featured at the Trilateral meeting stated: “One might consider… means of securing support and resources from foundations, business corporations, labor unions, political parties, civic associations, and, where possible and appropriate, governmental agencies for the creation of an institute for the strengthening of democratic institutions.”
It took 4 years for this blueprint to become reality. In 1979 three Trilateral Commission members named William Brock (RNC Chairman), Charles Manatt (DNC Chairman) and George Agree (head of Freedom House) established an organization called the American Political Foundation (APF) which attempted to fulfil the objective laid out by Huntington in 1975.
The APF was used to set up a program using federal funds called the Democracy Program which issued an interim report “The Commitment to Democracy” which said: “No theme requires more sustained attention in our time than the necessity for strengthening the future chances of democratic societies in a world that remains predominantly unfree or partially fettered by repressive governments. … There has never been a comprehensive structure for a non-governmental effort through which the resources of America’s pluralistic constituencies . .. could be mobilized effectively.”
In May 1981, Henry Kissinger who had replaced Brzezinski as head of the Trilateral Commission and had many operatives planted around President Reagan, gave a speech at Britain’s Chatham House (the controlling hand behind the Council on Foreign Relations) where he described his work as Secretary of State saying that the British “became a participant in internal American deliberations, to a degree probably never practiced between sovereign nations… In my White House incarnation then, I kept the British Foreign Office better informed and more closely engaged than I did the American State Department… It was symptomatic”. In his speech, Kissinger outlined the battle between Churchill vs FDR during WWII and made the point that he favored the Churchill worldview for the post war world (And ironically also that of Prince Metternich who ran the Congress of Vienna that snuffed out democratic movements across Europe in 1815).
In June 1982, Reagan’s Westminster Palace speech officially inaugurated the NED and by November 1983, the National Endowment for Democracy Act was passed bringing this new covert organization into reality with $31 million of funding under four subsidiary organizations (AFL-CIO Free Trade Union Institute, The US Chamber of Commerce’s Center for International Private Enterprise, the International Republican Institute and the International Democratic Institute) (2).
Throughout the 1980s, this organization went to work managing Iran-Contra, destabilizing Soviet states and unleashing the first “official” modern color revolution in the form of the Yellow revolution that ousted Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos. Speaking more candidly than usual, NED President David Ignatius said in 1991 “a lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA”.
With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the NED was instrumental in bringing former Warsaw Pact nations into NATO/WTO system and the New World Order was announced by Bush Sr. and Kissinger- both of whom were rewarded with knighthoods for their service to the Crown in 1992 and 1995 respectively.
Of course, the vast web of NGOs permeating the geopolitical terrain can only be effective as long as no one says the truth and “names the game”. The very act of calling out their nefarious motives renders them impotent and this simple fact has made the recently announced China-Russia arrangement to formulate a proper strategic response to color revolutions so important in the current fight."
"Syria Between the Ottoman Hammer and the Israeli Anvil" (Samo):
"Erdogan has three objectives regarding the establishment of a safe zone; two declared short range and a third undeclared long range. The first objective is security; the withdrawal of the armed Kurdish groups from the zone, a process which appears to have started. The second objective is resettling the Turkey-based Syrian refugees in the zone. The third and insidious objective is potentially reclaiming Syrian territory which was occupied by the Ottomans for 400 years, until the end of World War I. It should be noted that the 800 kilometers Syrian-Turkish border was based on the Sykes-Picot Agreement and drawn after WWI and the demise of the Ottoman Empire; it is not a historic nor natural border. A substantial part of the border is the Orient Express rail track, built by German Christians to be the border between two antagonistic Muslim states and not to the liking of either.

Erdogan is using a double strategy in dealing with the great powers to implement his three objectives. With Europe, it is blackmail. He either gets European support, or he will facilitate shipping hundreds of thousands of refugees to Europe. With Washington and Moscow, it is ‘the other woman’. I recall the Israeli-Palestinian and the Israeli-Syrian peace negotiations in the early 1990s. Whenever the Israelis didn’t get their way in one track, they would hint of reverting to the other track; so is the case with Erdogan vis-a-vis Washington and Moscow.

As for southern Syria, although Netanyahu and Erdogan overtly appear antagonist, they in fact share one common objective which is to squeeze and occupy Syrian territory. In the pursuit of their objectives, both rely on questionable historical claims and power differential between Syria on the one hand and Turkey and Israel on the other. Netanyahu’s annexation of the occupied Golan on the basis of questionable historical claims and Trump’s blessings is not objectionable to Erdogan despite his pretentious public protestations. The Ottomans occupied Syria for 400 years and Netanyahu claims the Golan historically belongs to Israel. Both Turkey and Israel have ‘recovered’ part of what they believe was theirs; Turkey ‘recovered’ Syrian Alexandretta district in 1939 and Israel ‘recovered’ two thirds of the Syrian Golan in the 1967 War and one assumes that both would like to ‘recover’ more."

"Mysterious killing of Saudi King's bodyguard sparks intrigue" (Younes):
"Al-Fagham's death led to rumours of palace intrigue. Some Saudi analysts have questioned whether the bodyguard was in communication with senior Saudi princes regarding MBS's possible plans for succeeding hid father.
"Because of al-Fagham's relationships with many princes of the royal family since the days of King Abdullah, for whom he was his personal bodyguard as well, it's possible that he was suspected of leaking some information about MBS's plans," said Hamzah al-Kinani, a Washington-based Saudi academic and dissident who has worked previously for a senior Saudi royal.
Al-Kinani said his beliefs are based on his knowledge of the workings of the Saudi royal family.
In a video posted online after the killing and apparently filmed by an onlooker in a parked car as the bodyguard exercised in the upscale Al Shatee neighbourhood in Jeddah, al-Fagham was seen walking down the street wearing running shoes, a sweaty T-shirt and dark coloured shorts.
"Walking in public like that is rather unusual for a royal guard who rarely left the king's side and whose family said publically they have not seen in years," said Ali al-Ahmad, long-time Saudi affairs analyst and a dissident based in Washington, DC.
Other Saudi watchers said that exercising in public perhaps was an indication that al-Fagham was communicating with others in the royal family who were unhappy with MBS's policies, including the war in Yemen and the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which have tarnished the kingdom's image in the Arab and Muslim world in particular.
Robert Baer, a former CIA agent who worked in the Middle East, said the killing of al-Fagham is "very strange" and "does not make any sense".
"To put this incident in perspective it goes along with the Khashoggi's killing, the attack on the Abqaiq oil storage facilities at Aramco Company and the war in Yemen. All of this makes me worried about the future and stability of Saudi Arabia," he said."
"Saudi Arabia Recognizes Its Weakness and Is Ready to Talk to the Iranian Foe" (Bar'el):
"The prospect of negotiations between Saudi Arabia and Iran may lie in the portfolio of Prince Mohammed’s diplomatic and military failures: the boycott and blockade of Qatar initiated by Saudi Arabia; the fiasco in Lebanon where he tried to oust the prime minister; the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which dumped Saudi Arabia in the pit of pariah nations in the West; the military failure in Yemen and the way Riyadh’s partner, the United Arab Emirates, abandoned the arena; and now the attack on the oil facilities. They all label Prince Mohammed a failed leader unable to protect his country’s interests.
Around him is a bevy of princes removed from power, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, who was the crown prince until he was ousted, and Prince Mutaib bin Abdullah, the National Guard commander for years.
The killing (or murder) of Abdulaziz al-Fagham, King Salman’s personal bodyguard, was portrayed as a crime in which a friend of Fagham’s acted out of “personal” disagreements. But the Saudis prefer the version being circulated by the anonymous blogger Mujtahid, who wrote that Fagham was murdered in the palace and not in his friend’s home.
According to Mujtahid, who provides controversial reports on what goes on in the royal court, Prince Mohammed considered Fagham disloyal and sought to replace him with an associate. Indeed, Fagham was replaced Gen. Saad al-Qahtani, the cousin of Saud al-Qahtani, the former adviser to Prince Mohammed who is suspected of planning Khashoggi’s murder."

"Brexit: the Banality of Treason" (Joyce).  Brexit is too boring for words (the coverage of today's events is just a duplication of two months ago, or three, or six . . . ), but I am still struck by the fact that what we are seeing is a conspiracy between the Euro-trash - who are terrified that the successful escape of Britain will send a message to countries like Italy that salvation is possible - and the globo-homo-Rothschildos of all parties in the British Parliament to subvert the clearly expressed desire of the British people.  Basically, the Euro-Trash is pretending that they hold all the cards - which they don't, as many of the largest European firms would go bankrupt immediately if they were to lose access to the British market - and the various British parliamentarians are playing along with this, all hoping to terrify the British people into accepting that they are stuck with Europe.  The Queen should order the lot of them to The Tower for immediate beheading for high treason.  Much as I hate Boris, anything he does pales into insignificance beside the horrors of this anti-democratic conspiracy.

"Indonesia's security minister Wiranto hurt after stabbing attack":
"In recent months, Wiranto has been designated by President Joko Widodo as the person in-charge with the handling of the unrest in the country's West Papua region.

President Widodo had appointed the former military chief as the top security minister in 2016.

General Wiranto, 72, had been previously accused of committing atrocities during Indonesia's occupation of East Timor.

He was in charge of the military when the Indonesian army and paramilitaries carried out deadly assaults after East Timor sought independence from Indonesia in 1999.

About 100,000 people are estimated to have been killed, mainly by Indonesian forces and their proxies, or died of starvation and illness during the occupation.

Wiranto was among other senior officers indicted by UN prosecutors over human rights abuses during the 24-year occupation period.

Despite evidence gathered proving his role in the killings of 1999, Wiranto denies any wrongdoing and has never faced court over the atrocities."
"Bringing SNC-Lavalin to Mind in this Uninspiring Federal Election" (Panitch):
"The privatizations of recent decades have resulted in the loss of essential public capacities. This is especially serious in the face of the scale of the environmental crisis we face today. That the neoliberal mania is wearing off is clear from the way the deficit obsession that dominated previous federal elections now suddenly seems a thing of the past. Yet with the Liberals $4.5-billion Trans Mountain pipeline nationalization, and the Conservatives astronomically more expensive pan-Canadian energy corridor proposal, it appears their only interest in public infrastructural capacities pertain to sustaining the very industry that is at the root of the climate crisis.
This is of course par for the course. The $3-billion left unpaid by General Motors from the $12-billion public bailout provided to it a decade ago could have covered all the costs entailed in implementing the Oshawa worker-environmental alliance plan to save the GM plant by taking it into public ownership and converting it into producing battery electric powered vehicles for Canada Post and other public fleets. That not even Unifor, let alone the NDP or the Green Party, has championed this plan only goes to show how bereft of big ideas are the foremost institutions that pass for the left in Canada today.
To really implement a Green New Deal of the scale required by the climate emergency would require developing the kind of public engineering and construction capacities that underpinned FDR’s New Deal during the Great Depression. It is the merest illusion to imagine that this crisis can be addressed through regulatory and tax inducements rather than the acquisition and application in the public interest of precisely the kind of engineering and construction capacities that are concentrated in SNC-Lavalin – the too big to fail corporation that the Trudeau government turned itself into knots to keep from failing.
The half million Montrealers who joined the global student-led climate strike at the end of September probably comprised the largest proportion of the population of any city in the world. Yet during the leader’s election debate staged in that city less than a week later no one connected the dots to raise the efficacy of turning SNC-Lavalin into a public utility. This marked, at least to this point, the most depressing moment of this entirely uninspiring election."

There is no 'left' or right when it comes to violent racist supremacism, but it is interesting how the Khazars on both 'sides' are piling on BDS and the problems of the mythological 'anti-Zionism' (btw, this makes perfect sense from a PR point of view for group supremacists, as it hides the uncomfortable fact that there actually is no Khazar opposition to ultra-Zionism).  "The Case Against the Zionist “Left”" (Litvin).  "How Not to Fight Anti-Semitism" (Weissmann).  "Why ‘moderates’ don’t have a clue what to do about Israel’s settlements" (El Kady).  "Anti-Zionist Jews are ‘as deeply opposed to Jewish interests as our enemies’ — Bari Weiss" (Weiss).  "Anti-Zionist Jews are like Jews who reversed circumcision to fit in with ‘cool group’ — Bari Weiss" (Weiss).  "American Jewry’s days of reckoning" (Glick).  Remember that they don't care about BDS, which was long ago defanged into a pro-Zionist position, so all the usual whining is just posturing.
