Seth Rich, again

Very nicely written summary of the Seth Rich assassination:  "Seth Rich, Julian Assange and Dana Rohrabacher - Will We Ever Know the Truth About the Stolen DNC Files?" (Giraldi).  Also read the first comment - the only comment at this time - by plantman.

I note that Mueller could have asked Assange about this, but tellingly choose not to, one has to assume because he knew he wouldn't like the answers.


Tweet (Bloomberg Management):
"JUST IN: Activist investor Elliott Management has taken a sizable stake in Twitter and plans to push for changes, including replacing CEO Jack Dorsey, sources say"
Nobody's going to miss that fucker Jack, but look for the censorship to rise significantly, as this is blood-pouring-from-the-fangs (((Singer))) we're talking about, probably the single worst human being on the planet at this time.

"The Media’s Deafening Silence on Mike Bloomberg’s Ties to Epstein and Other Criminals" (Webb) (also).  You'd think the high-level Khazars would have enough sense to stay away from the bait, but the need to humiliate shiksas is just too strong.

He's literally bought the superdelegate votes that will determine the nominee, and nobody blinks an eye!:  "Bloomberg Has Hired the Vice Chairs of the Texas and California Democratic Parties" (Lacy).

Note this conspiracy theory response to the Webb tweet linked above, by Dilemma.  "8 people from Winnipeg dead in Tehran plane crash" (Dacey/Greenslade).  Then the second or third (after South Korea) biggest outbreak occurs in Iran!  The first vaccine may come out of Montreal (Michel Chrétien, world famous medical researcher, is Jean Chrétien's brother!).

It would be hilarious if the US economy crashes due to an American bioweapon used against China and Iran, Trump thus loses the election, and ends up in jail.
 "Coronavirus: US says Russia behind disinformation campaign" (Glenza).  Of course . . .

"Luxembourg is first country to make all public transport free".

Tweet (Dimitri Lascaris):
"Trudeau’s government acknowledges that #Israel’s West Bank settlements violate the Fourth Geneva Convention. The settlements are a war crime. Now @JustinTrudeau’s two-faced government is trying to persuade the ICC not to prosecute Israeli war criminals."
Response by BEEHEMOTH:
"What does Israel have on our government employees? There is a complete absence of logic concerning any of their actions.
Actually, I'd be shocked if the most obviously blackmailed person in the world acted any differently:  tweet (Mark Ames):
"Lindsay Graham wants Trump to risk nuclear war with Russia to help authoritarian thug Erdogan protect Al Qaeda's largest global franchise. You can't even make satire with this material, it's just too fucking insane."
Tweet (John Bolton):
"I support @Liz_Cheney & the 22 Members who signed her letter questioning a peace deal with the Taliban. "Commitments" made by these terrorists have no credibility. Any peace that surrenders American interests is no peace at all."
Tweet (Tariq Nasheed):
"So Steven Spielberg's 23-year-old adopted Black daughter who is now doing porn, says she was groomed & sexually abused as a child via
Spielberg's alleged predilections are one of the most venerable and repeated gossip items:  "Today's Blind Items - More, More, More" (CDaN).

Luck of the 'Irish'

"Julia Ioffe: The Weaponized Immigrant Journalist" (Levine) (also).  "Anonymous Sources and the Guys and Gals Who Made the Iraq War a Reality Are Now Claiming That the Kremlin Is at It Again!" (Giraldi).  Comment by Mustapha Mond:
"Sanger. Nuland (Nudelman). Kagan. Albright. Harman. All Irish people!

It’s those damned Irish again, subverting our country and destroying our freedoms.

I blame Sinn Fein. And Russia.

Who should we nuke first…… ?"
WWIII is necessary, goyim, as Putin is interfering with the killing and land theft that is the right, and obsession, of all Khazars.

"Lest We Forget – Hillary Clinton: We Must Destroy Syria for Israel" (Uprooted Palestinians).

"Joe Biden, Ukraine, nazis, John Conyers and the fall election" (Bellant). We'll know for certain after South Carolina, but the Clintonista plan to remove Biden using the impeachment of Trump seems to have been remarkably successful.

Tweet (Independent Jewish Voices) (unanimous, so the Liberals and NDP, who aren't Christian Zionist nuts, took the shekels):
"#Bill168 to adopt the Orwelllian IHRA redefinition of antisemitism was just adopted unanimously by the #Ontario legislature at 2nd reading We commend MPPs for wanting to fight antisemitism, but the IHRA is the wrong way to go about it. #noIHRA"
"Canada Joins ‘Friendly States’ in Opposing ICC War Crimes Investigation in Palestine" (Palestine Chronicle).  Beardboy is amassing a huge pile of shekels.

We haven't seen this palpably unbridled lust for power since . . . Killary:  tweet (Jimmy Dore) (also):
"I don't know about you but I wish people would stop pointing out horrible stuff like this that further reveals Elizabeth Warren as a duplicitous untrustworthy liar,... mostly because it will make it harder for me to vote for her after they steal it from Bernie."
A wasted day, though it did emphasize how compromised and incompetent the judge is:  "Judge: Julian Assange Must Remain in Glass Box During Extradition Proceedings" (Gosztola).  "Julian Assange, Political Offences and Legal Restraints" (STCLAIR).  "Julian Assange, the Glass Cage and Heaven in a Rage: Day Four of Extradition Hearings" (Kampmark). There are a lot of recesses in this show trial, required, of course, so the judge can keep getting her instructions from Langley.  If the defence can stretch this out to November, and on the huge assumption Bernie doesn't get shivved by the Clintonistas (again), that's the only way out (I'm naturally assuming Bernie has no trouble with Trump - the way you know that Bernie will have no trouble with Trump is that all the usual suspects claim he will have trouble with Trump).  It is striking how far the British people, who invented much of judicial protection of human rights and security, have fallen.

"The Modi/Trump Anti-Muslim Alliance" (Brauchli).  "Who Will Douse Delhi’s Flames?" (Versey).

"With Help From US Media Allies, Nicaragua’s Coup-Mongers Are Aiming for Western Hearts and Minds" (McCurdy/Mitchell).

Remind me again how these 'nice' people always end up in conflict with the people who have to live near them.  It's a real puzzler.:  "On Hanging from the Blades of an Israeli Bulldozer: Al-Naem is Every Palestinian".  "Iran: Dubowitz’s coronavirus remarks ‘shameful and inhuman’".

"One Way Apartheid Israel Hides its Crimes against the Native Palestinians; The Kyl-Bingaman Amendment" (Bacon).

"One in Five Europeans Aware of Jewish Domination of the West" (Anglin).  I assume the one in five is an under count, as people are rightfully terrified of saying what they really think, but we still need to get that number up.

"Are Russia and Turkey on a Collision Course?" (The Saker). "Turkey, Russia tiptoe toward ‘unnecessary war’" (Bhadrakumar).  "Turkey's Losing Bet in Syria" (Cartalucci).  "Turkey: Why is the ‘Sick Man of Europe’ itching in Syria?" (Sheikh). 

"The Afghanistan ‘peace Deal’ Riddle" (Escobar).  You have to wonder if Trump could get a deal if he could just peel the CIA's hands off the heroin.

So what's Bezos up to here, publishing something truthful, totally against consistent WP policies (it must be a trick of some kind!)?:  "Bolivia dismissed its October elections as fraudulent. Our research found no reason to suspect fraud." (Curiel/Williams).

Tweet (Alex Rubinstein):
"Seems like there's a pattern emerging of Twitter suspending accounts that point out that Mike Bloomberg was in Jeffrey Epstein's Black Book. My guess is it's because of mass reporting by paid Bloomberg operatives"

Erdoğan's Syrian adventures

Tweet (Syrian Girl):
"Turkey has admitted that dozens of Turkish soldiers have died trying to invade #Idlib. Who sends soldiers to a place where they don’t have air defence? Trump and Erdogan have that in common."
Not only that, but supplies the jihadists with the same vehicles the Turkish army uses, and then whines when the Syrian army, fighting these terrorists, kills Turkish troops (the Turks also refuse to tell the Russians where they are, further endangering their troops, whose lives are unimportant except as Turkish PR). You'd be forgiven for thinking that Erdoğan planned this on purpose, to give him a casus belli for some land grabbing, and even to try to get NATO involved. "Russia sends warships to Syria, blames Ankara for deaths of Turkish troops".

Magnier thread.

He's softening up the Eurotrash with his main weapon, refugees.

Dangerous for Trump

"Here's Why WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Is Dangerous for Trump" (Gilbert/Walters).

CIA truck lane

The very essence of 'political':  tweet (Naomi Colvin):
"Ed Fitzgerald: what other point could there be to publish evidence of war crimes, torture and human rights abuses if not to produce a change in policy? "WikiLeaks did effect a change, this is one of the reasons policy did change" re: Iraq withdrawal #Assange"
It is interesting to compare this case to the Canadian case, where again the US is attempting to circumvent the vary obvious 'political' nature of the issue by glomming on to a supposed criminal act, in Britain, having a part in releasing the identities of people whose lives may be thereby threatened (though the real crime was committed by 'journalists' at the Guardian, including the laughably spooked-up Luke Harding, who negligently (?) let the password out, and American authorities apparently didn't care when Assange gave them a panicked head's up), and in Canada, conspiring to breach the ridiculous American sanctions on Iran (another very obvious 'political' crime, as there is nothing more obviously political than 'regime change' and Sanctions For The Jews).

Unfortunately, relying just on the one statute, and the unique absence of an exception in that statute (allowing the use of the statutory interpretation angle that the words must have been left out on purpose), and completely ignoring any other laws, British common law, the Magna Carta and international law, there will be enough wiggle room of a lane for this corrupt and obviously dim-witted judge to drive her CIA truck through.

Day 4

Gosztola thread for Day 4, including this, on Assange's normal and reasonable request to be able to confer with his lawyers in real time, a right taken as a given in every non-corrupt court in the world (the judge seems to think all hell would break loose if he isn't tied up Hannibal-Lecter-style):
"Issue isn’t can Assange hear but can he participate in his defense. He wants to be able to consult with attorneys during proceedings and judge is prioritizing the security concerns of guards and counter-terrorism courthouse personnel over due process rights."
Also (where it gets interesting):
"In so many words, prosecutor says political offense exception was useful to countries in Western empire (who upheld “liberal democracy”) long ago, but times have changed. Their power has waned. Who are dissidents we wish to protect is more murky #Assange"
"It definitely sounds like Lewis is arguing political offense exception was tool for US government to protect dissidents that were useful to its agenda. Government does not rely on it as much anymore. Of course not because it gets in the way of terrorism extraditions #Assange"
In other words, express statement from the agent for the hegemon that the 'political' exception only exists to protect 'color revolution' style dissidents who are working for the hegemon in regime change, is no longer needed for imperial projects, and therefore should be abandoned!

Courage Foundation thread on Day 4.

M. A. E. thread, mostly on statutory construction and 'political offences'.

Tweet (Dame Cathy Vogan):
"#Manning's crew were forbidden video games in the brig. In an Apache helicopter was another story...

Biggest revelation was that password crack was to download video games & music video; not state secrets. NO login was needed for the military database."
 Tweet (Flick Ruby):
"What have we learned from @WikiLeaks? Friends, this thread will go for a while. Consider and evaluate whether this material is in the public interest as events regarding #WikiLeaks and #Assange unfold. Also, feel free to unfollow if you can't hack it."
Added: Murray on the truly embarrassing judicial shitshow that was Day 3:
"Baraitser started to throw out jargon like a Dalek when it spins out of control. “Risk assessment” and “health and safety” featured a lot. She started to resemble something worse than a Dalek, a particularly stupid local government officer of a very low grade. “No jurisdiction” – “Up to Group 4”. Recovering slightly, she stated firmly that delivery to custody can only mean delivery to the dock of the court, nowhere else in the room. If the defence wanted him in the courtroom where he could hear proceedings better, they could only apply for bail and his release from custody in general. She then peered at both barristers in the hope this would have sat them down, but both were still on their feet.

In his diffident manner (which I confess is growing on me) Lewis said “the prosecution is neutral on this request, of course but, err, I really don’t think that’s right”. He looked at her like a kindly uncle whose favourite niece has just started drinking tequila from the bottle at a family party."


"Acting DNI chief Grenell ‘was taking orders’ from Trump when he sought to secure Assange’s arrest, leaked call suggests",  "Trump’s Jew Told Cassandra Fairbanks That Trump Personally Ordered Persecution of Julian Assange" (Anglin).  The extradition is abuse of the British legal system in order to fulfill some revenge fantasy of Trump, which includes steps up to and including murder (bizarre, as Trump knows Assange revelations about how crooked Hillary is were a big part of Trump's win).  If the British courts weren't so corrupt, this should immediately sink the extradition, and, if American politics weren't so corrupt, immediately end the political career of Trump's thug, the guy/gay now in charge of all American intelligence operations, Grenell.

"Live Updates From London: Assange Extradition Hearing—Wednesday" (Consortium News).

"Prosecution: Us-Uk Treaty Does Not Apply to Assange Extradition" (Gosztola). The pay-off of the ongoing brave resistance of Manning:  "Assange Extradition Hearing: Chelsea Manning’s Grand Jury Resistance a Major Hurdle for Prosecutors" (Gosztola).

This is a rather striking example of how we have to rely on the alt-media, and not traditional 'journalism', to find out what the hell is going on.

What an incredible shitshow!  I should note that Day 3 featured the bizarre notion of the thick - she appears to be borderline retarded! - judge that Assange would require bail, and thus a bail hearing, if he would be allowed to confer privately with his lawyers!  You have to wonder if this judge had ever run a trial before, or even been in a courtroom.  Also, the Americans are growing concerned that the judge and judicial system are being so harsh on Assange - showing off for CIA approval (the entire show trial seems to be set up to scare any future leakers or publishers or real journalists) - that they may lead to a mistrial!:  tweet (Matt Kennard):
"District Judge Vanessa Baraitser is being so punitive towards Assange that the US prosecution is clearly worried that the irregular and harsh conditions of the proceeding could force a mistrial.

What is going on?"
"While demanding Assange, US refuses to extradite CIA agent who killed British teen" (Rubinstein).

Its not allowed for a Defendant to speak

Gosztola thread for Day 3.  Note that the judge seems to be throwing out any argument about a 'political' exception to extradition, so the defence is layering the record with material for appeal courts, which are hopefully less crooked.  From what I'm reading this judge also seems a bit thick.

Tweet (Diani Barreto):
"Julian #Assange is speaking now to the Magistrate; that he cannot instruct his lawyers; that there is no privacy, he cannot participate. He cannot speak to his lawyer’s, without any confidence. Judge orders him to cease speaking; its not allowed for a Defendant to speak."
See, a judge with an IQ over 75 would be able to put this a little better!

Annexation mapping committee

"With Grenell Appointment, the Israel Lobby’s Foothold on US Intelligence Grows Even Stronger" (Webb).  Lots and lots more ((())).  It is ridiculous the extent to which the American government has been taken over.  Note the prominence of the MEGA Group.  Blackmail pays.

"Trump and Netanyahu prepare for West Bank annexation" (Nassar).  The "joint US-Israel annexation mapping committee".

"We should applaud the Syrian military’s actions in Idlib, not deplore them" (Gowans).  Really excellent.  It shouldn't be so hard to find common sense in writing about Syria.

Tweet (هادي نصرالله):
"The recently liberated Idlib and Aleppo countrysides. A thread.

There was no “moderate rebels”. There was no “rebels” in Syria.

They were always Al Qaeda and ISIS.

We were called conspiracy theorists and liars when we said Syria is fighting global terrorism. Who’s lying now?"
The most amazing thing about all this crap we're being fed is that this is literally al Qaeda we're talking about. Remember al Qaeda?  9/11?  Osama bin Laden?  The stated cause of all those disastrous Wars For The Jews?  Now the (((media))) is telling us that protecting these monsters is the single most important humanitarian mission in world history!

What Erdoğan is up against is that the Russians can't accept his idea that an al-Qaeda statelet in Syria would be a good thing, as such a terrorist base of operations is literally an existential threat to Russia:  "Ankara has Shot Itself in the Foot in Syria" (Kulikov).  Putin can't bend on this point as stopping this vary thing is the whole basis for Russian involvement in Syria.

"Credibility of European Court of Human Rights lies in ruins after judges’ links to Soros revealed" (Laughland).  Soros weaponizing 'human rights'.

Ha!:  tweet (Chip Gibbons) (you're not supposed to say that out loud!):
"Thank you to everyone who thought resurrecting paranoid Cold War rhetoric was a surefire way to "resist" Donald Trump. This moment couldn't have happened without your help."
Tweet (Michael Tae Sweeney) (as was the case with Corbyn, they are trying to use Sanders' long history of being right against him):
"So one year after they toppled the democratically elected government of Chile and installed Pinochet and one year before the Church Committee revealed widescale illegal domestic spying and CIA lawbreaking?"
 "How We Stay Blind to the Story of Power" (Cook):
"(Trump’s relation to power could be the basis for an entirely separate post. He is not an ideological threat to power, he is one if its functionaries. But he is a potential Harvey Weinstein or Prince Andrew. He can be sacrificed if needs be. The Russiagate narrative has served two purposes useful to power. It has tamed Trump’s ego-based politics to ensure he does not threaten deep power by making it more visible. And it has created a compelling political drama that channels and dissipates the “resistance” to Trump, satisfying much of the left’s own need to feel they are doing something, when in fact they are simply strengthening Trump and deep power.)"
"Six-Year-Olds Being Trained To Save Opioid OD's In Appalachia" (Langum).  You won't read that this is entirely a problem caused by anti-gentilism and Khazar shekel grasping.

Tweet (Madame Boukman - Justice 4 Haiti):
"President of #Haiti issued a decree on FEB 12 to declare energy, mining, offshore islands, and ALL other resources for development a matter of NATIONAL SECURITY, thus no parliament approval or contract bidding required, just hand everything to multinational business vultures."
Murray on Day 1, the Kafkaesque show trial of Assange, locked in a plastic box as if he might explode at any minute:  "Your Man in the Public Gallery – Assange Hearing Day One" (the prosecutor seems none too bright!):
"There was a separate media entrance and a media room with live transmission from the courtroom, and there were so many scores of media I thought I could relax and not worry as the basic facts would be widely reported. In fact, I could not have been more wrong. I followed the arguments very clearly every minute of the day, and not a single one of the most important facts and arguments today has been reported anywhere in the mainstream media. That is a bold claim, but I fear it is perfectly true. So I have much work to do to let the world know what actually happened. The mere act of being an honest witness is suddenly extremely important, when the entire media has abandoned that role.
James Lewis QC made the opening statement for the prosecution. It consisted of two parts, both equally extraordinary. The first and longest part was truly remarkable for containing no legal argument, and for being addressed not to the magistrate but to the media. It is not just that it was obvious that is where his remarks were aimed, he actually stated on two occasions during his opening statement that he was addressing the media, once repeating a sentence and saying specifically that he was repeating it again because it was important that the media got it.
I am frankly astonished that Baraitser allowed this. It is completely out of order for a counsel to address remarks not to the court but to the media, and there simply could not be any clearer evidence that this is a political show trial and that Baraitser is complicit in that. I have not the slightest doubt that the defence would have been pulled up extremely quickly had they started addressing remarks to the media. Baraitser makes zero pretence of being anything other than in thrall to the Crown, and by extension to the US Government.
The points which Lewis wished the media to know were these: it is not true that mainstream outlets like the Guardian and New York Times are also threatened by the charges against Assange, because Assange was not charged with publishing the cables but only with publishing the names of informants, and with cultivating Manning and assisting him to attempt computer hacking. Only Assange had done these things, not mainstream outlets.
Lewis then proceeded to read out a series of articles from the mainstream media attacking Assange, as evidence that the media and Assange were not in the same boat. The entire opening hour consisted of the prosecution addressing the media, attempting to drive a clear wedge between the media and Wikileaks and thus aimed at reducing media support for Assange. It was a political address, not remotely a legal submission. At the same time, the prosecution had prepared reams of copies of this section of Lewis’ address, which were handed out to the media and given them electronically so they could cut and paste.
Following an adjournment, magistrate Baraitser questioned the prosecution on the veracity of some of these claims. In particular, the claim that newspapers were not in the same position because Assange was charged not with publication, but with “aiding and abetting” Chelsea Manning in getting the material, did not seem consistent with Lewis’ reading of the 1989 Official Secrets Act, which said that merely obtaining and publishing any government secret was an offence. Surely, Baraitser suggested, that meant that newspapers just publishing the Manning leaks would be guilty of an offence?
This appeared to catch Lewis entirely off guard. The last thing he had expected was any perspicacity from Baraitser, whose job was just to do what he said. Lewis hummed and hawed, put his glasses on and off several times, adjusted his microphone repeatedly and picked up a succession of pieces of paper from his brief, each of which appeared to surprise him by its contents, as he waved them haplessly in the air and said he really should have cited the Shayler case but couldn’t find it. It was liking watching Columbo with none of the charm and without the killer question at the end of the process.
Suddenly Lewis appeared to come to a decision. Yes, he said much more firmly. The 1989 Official Secrets Act had been introduced by the Thatcher Government after the Ponting Case, specifically to remove the public interest defence and to make unauthorised possession of an official secret a crime of strict liability – meaning no matter how you got it, publishing and even possessing made you guilty. Therefore, under the principle of dual criminality, Assange was liable for extradition whether or not he had aided and abetted Manning. Lewis then went on to add that any journalist and any publication that printed the official secret would therefore also be committing an offence, no matter how they had obtained it, and no matter if it did or did not name informants.
Lewis had thus just flat out contradicted his entire opening statement to the media stating that they need not worry as the Assange charges could never be applied to them. And he did so straight after the adjournment, immediately after his team had handed out copies of the argument he had now just completely contradicted. I cannot think it has often happened in court that a senior lawyer has proven himself so absolutely and so immediately to be an unmitigated and ill-motivated liar. This was undoubtedly the most breathtaking moment in today’s court hearing.
Yet remarkably I cannot find any mention anywhere in the mainstream media that this happened at all. What I can find, everywhere, is the mainstream media reporting, via cut and paste, Lewis’s first part of his statement on why the prosecution of Assange is not a threat to press freedom; but nobody seems to have reported that he totally abandoned his own argument five minutes later. Were the journalists too stupid to understand the exchanges?
The explanation is very simple. The clarification coming from a question Baraitser asked Lewis, there is no printed or electronic record of Lewis’ reply. His original statement was provided in cut and paste format to the media. His contradiction of it would require a journalist to listen to what was said in court, understand it and write it down. There is no significant percentage of mainstream media journalists who command that elementary ability nowadays. “Journalism” consists of cut and paste of approved sources only. Lewis could have stabbed Assange to death in the courtroom, and it would not be reported unless contained in a government press release.
I was left uncertain of Baraitser’s purpose in this. Plainly she discomfited Lewis very badly on this point, and appeared rather to enjoy doing so. On the other hand the point she made is not necessarily helpful to the defence. What she was saying was essentially that Julian could be extradited under dual criminality, from the UK point of view, just for publishing, whether or not he conspired with Chelsea Manning, and that all the journalists who published could be charged too. But surely this is a point so extreme that it would be bound to be invalid under the Human Rights Act? Was she pushing Lewis to articulate a position so extreme as to be untenable – giving him enough rope to hang himself – or was she slavering at the prospect of not just extraditing Assange, but of mass prosecutions of journalists?
The reaction of one group was very interesting. The four US government lawyers seated immediately behind Lewis had the grace to look very uncomfortable indeed as Lewis baldly declared that any journalist and any newspaper or broadcast media publishing or even possessing any government secret was committing a serious offence. Their entire strategy had been to pretend not to be saying that."

Day 2

Gosztola thread on Day 2 of the Assange persecution.  It seems defence counsel are doing their jobs, but with a judge so utterly compromised by conflicts of interest, and obviously biased, it is probably hopeless.

"As Assange’s trial begins, his lawyers highlight risk of extradition with CIA spying operation’s ‘extreme measures’" (Gosztola). The apparent quid pro quo that Rohrabacher tried to arrange - a pardon for Assange spilling the beans on Seth Rich - would seem to create the 'political' exception which should preclude extradition, if the judge cared at all about the law.

"WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Hrafnsson Briefly Banned From Assange Hearings With No Explanation" (Elmaazi/Korso).

It is curious that British prison officials seem to be going well out of their way to mistreat Assange, as if they, and the judge, are looking to Langley for a thumb's up.  Perhaps they'll all get CIA awards - the Guardians of Vault 7.

Sheer torture

Funny time to remind Erdoğan that it was the CIA behind the last coup attempt against him, the ultimate goal of which was to have Erdoğan killed, and the memory of which constitutes the strongest lever that Moscow has in reminding him of who his real friends are:  "Escobar: Putin Keen To Cool Turkish Hawk Down":
"The crucial NATO story is actually way more muddled. Diplomatic sources in Brussels say the new NATO offensive is to try to interfere deeply in both Iraq and Jordan as a means to keep the situation in Syria unresolved.

To complicate matters, a new report by the RAND Corporation, entitled Turkey’s Nationalist Course, ruffled countless feathers in both Ankara and Istanbul, spinning the possibility of a new military coup in Turkey after the failed 2016 adventure.

This could be either wishful thinking or a “recommendation” to Trump from the Deep State. Both scenarios are plausible. It’s easy to imagine Erdogan’s serial sleepless nights trying to figure out who his friends really are."
"Russia Isn’t Dividing Us — Our Leaders Are" (Taibbi). The thing about Russiagate is that it is a series of statements which purport to be factual but which are more accurately seen as part of a religious belief system.  The key is that none of the components of Russiagate is falsifiable, which is to say that there is no possible evidence that could be presented to the Clintonistas which would cause them to admit that they are wrong.  In fact, if you raise an obvious objection - like, say, under Trump NATO operations in Europe have increased to a dangerous level that Putin could not possibly want - the instant response is for the Clintonistas to claim that you are obviously an agent of Putin!  This can go on forever, as no changes in facts, or proffered hard evidence, can possibly change the minds of a religious believer.

"Why Exactly Does Putin Love Bernie?" (Ioffe).  Khazar domination of the (((media))) has resulted in the hilarious situation where (((people))) who shouldn't be allowed to write for the local dog-owners association are suddenly given mass public platforms on which to embarrass themselves (see also, Bari Weiss).

Excellent reminder that hydrocarbons are finished as an economic way forward, and it is only dead-ender grievance politicians that are keeping it alive:  "The real betrayal of Albertans? Lifer politicians who won’t tell them the truth." (Gilmore).  You know how stupid it is when the hydrocarbon companies themselves are more woke that the politicians who purport to work for them:  "Teck to pull proposal for Frontier oilsands mine in Alberta" (Leavitt/Scoffield).  This is just common sense - why pick now of all times, when emotions are stirred up all over the country, to force through approval of a massively dirty mine that can't possibly be operational until the oil price almost doubles, a very unlikely situation which may not ever occur, and at best may take decades to happen?

Trudeau jumped the gun, thinking he'd solved the BC pipeline problem and letting the police start arresting people, a mistake that has actually slowed the process of sorting things out:  "Coastal GasLink sent back to the table with Indigenous leaders" (Fletcher) and  "Planned meeting between feds, Wet’suwet’en now delayed due to Trudeau’s comments: chief" (Boynton) and "OPP arrest 10 demonstrators at Tyendinaga blockade site, charges pending" (Tunney).

The interesting Asshole component to this is that American buyers get Alberta oil at discount prices because land-locked Alberta has no other place to sell oil, and this pipeline, albeit all in BC, represents the beginnings of a Canadian policy decision to start to sell hydrocarbons to China:  "U.S. foundations funding Canadian anti-pipeline protests: fair or foul?" (Hunt).

Tweet (Dylan Penner):
"Given police in Ottawa have admitted to using controversial facial recognition and Stingray cell monitoring tech, can #cdnmedia ask what kind of surveillance this van is doing and why? It's been following the Ottawa #WetsuwetenSolidarity demo all day."
"How Hindu Supremacists are Tearing India Apart"(Subramanian).  Supremacism is such a powerful drug that its adherents will literally destroy their own county in order to continue the delusion.  While other countries continue to advance, India is going backwards, fast, in almost every way.

Micromanaging the PA (presumably under the orders of President Jared) - installing the properly bribed traitors to the Palestinians - required three days of Bloody Gina, in person, and three days of her is sheer torture!:  "US-Palestinian intelligence talks focus on Abbas’ successor" (Abu Amer).

Using Hollywood to trick Americans into anti-MAGA Wars For The Jews is not new:  "Foreign Propaganda Interference Done Right: Brits in 1940s U.S." (Sailer).

"Manhattan DA Who Declined To Prosecute Weinstein Years Ago Celebrates Demise Of "Vicious Sexual Predator"" (Nathan).  It's shocking, given Vance's obvious corruption, that a conviction was obtained.  Don't people realize how it is the essence of anti-Semitism to stop powerful Khazars from humiliating gentile women?  The shiksa revenge on the Khazar humilators continues! I can't wait to see how much more of their credibility WSWS throws away to kvetch about this 'travesty of justice'.

Day 1

Gosztola thread on day 1 of the persecution of Assange.


"They gave $25 million to Jewish nonprofits. Was some of that money laundered from Ukraine?" (Boigon).  At this point, with massive piles and piles of evidence, I see no reason to describe Chabad as anything other than a group of gangsters, an organized crime gang which includes President Jared.

"Who Is Funding The Anti-Bernie Sanders Super PAC?" (Hasan).  Lotsa ((())).

"Iran Now has Second Most Deaths from Coronavirus – Weird Coincidence!" (Anglin).  "US State Department Blaming Russians for Coronavirus “Disinfo” (Are They Talking About Me???)" (Anglin):
"With regards to the Coronavirus – I don’t actually know that this is a US bioweapon, nor do I state for a fact that it is a US bioweapon.
What I have said is this:
  • DARPA was doing research on a “novel Coronavirus” to be used as a bioweapon
  • The claim that the virus escaped from a Chinese lab – promoted by CIA shill Tom Cotton – was a hoax spread by State Department fake news outlets (why would they feel a need to preempt the bioweapon angle unless they were worried about someone proving it was not a natural virus? And how would they know it was not a natural virus?)
  • The disease appears to primarily affect Chinese people (though we do know now whites can contract it)
  • There is no valid explanation of where this came from (Chinese people have been eating bats for thousands of years)
  • The US government and Mike Pompeo in particular are obsessed with attacking China
  • The US State Department and the CIA were 100% responsible for the attempted color revolution in Hong Kong
  • As soon as the color revolution in Hong Kong fizzled out, all of a sudden this virus popped up
  • The virus has done extreme damage to the Chinese economy at the exact time that the US State Department was calling for attacks on the Chinese economy
All of that leads me to believe that the simplest and most obvious explanation for the virus is that it is a bioweapon released by the US government.
I will not state that I know this for a fact, because I do not know this for a fact. But given how hard it is to get facts while living in an information control grid, we have to rely on informed speculation as we attempt to understand what is going on."

(((John Hannah)))

"Iraq Needs Regime Change Again" (Hannah).

(((John Hannah))), one of the worst of the neocons who conspired for the worst foreign policy decision in American history, wants a do-over!

  • from 2016, pre-Trump, and pre-Trump blackmailing, hoping that President Killary would scupper the Iran deal:  "Hillary Clinton, Neocon?"
  • "John Hannah is IMO a shill for Israel" (Lang) 
  • "John Hannah" (Militarist Monitor)
  • "Are the Neocons Finally with Trump?" (Mills)
  • withering attack on Hannah from Corn (!):  "GOPers Probing Iran Deal Turn to Cheney Aide Who Was Involved With Bogus Iraq Intel"
  • in case you wonder about the ((())) (I like how it is common now to send subtle ((())) warnings, as it is the most important thing you can know about someone, as well as the worst):  "Hannah and his wife Laura joined Temple Sinai, Washington DC, in the fall of 2006."

A vote for Bernie is a vote for democracy

Tweet (Rania Khalek);
"Greatest democracy in the world. This is why we invaded Iraq, to bring them this..."
Tweet (Matt Stoller):
"First Putin installed @TomPerez as DNC Chair. Then he hired ACRONYM to build an app for the Iowa caucuses ominously named Shadow. Then he got Bloomberg to spend $400 million on ads. Then he made sure Democrats had no agenda..."
Tweet (Ryan Grim):
"James Carville says the big winner in Nevada is Putin"
It has reached the point where people who might not vote Bernie have seen enough of the derangement of the Clintonistas, and enough of the open crookedness and bias of the DNC, and are starting to assert themselves, and reclaim the franchise which Clinton wants to steal, by voting for Sanders.  This has become a trend, with voting making a particular statement - besides wanting their vote back, it is also a statement against the War For The Jews known as WWIII (ironically, perhaps, as the Khazar Bernie may not be able to help himself) - which will need to be made through all the remaining states.

"Karl Marx and Jewish Power" (Guyénot):
"Marx redefines Jewish religion as the cult of money: “Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist.” He does the same for Jewish nationality, in one short sentence: “The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.” It follows naturally, according to Marx, that if you abolish money you will solve the Jewish question:

“Very well then! Emancipation from huckstering and money, consequently from practical, real Judaism, would be the self-emancipation of our time. An organization of society which would abolish the preconditions for huckstering, and therefore the possibility of huckstering, would make the Jew impossible. His religious consciousness would be dissipated like a thin haze in the real, vital air of society.”

Jews will be emancipated when all men will be emancipated, for there is no other emancipation than emancipation from money.

Marx makes the radical claim that love of money and economic alienation came to the world from the Jews. He equates economic alienation to Jewish influence:

“the practical Jewish spirit has become the practical spirit of the Christian nations. The Jews have emancipated themselves insofar as the Christians have become Jews. … The Jew is perpetually created by civil society from its own entrails. … The god of the Jews has become secularized and has become the god of the world”

And so, “In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism.” That sounds terribly anti-Semitic, from today’s standards. Because of these essays on the Jewish Question, Marx’s biographers have been more concerned by the question, “Was Marx an anti-Semite?” (see Edmund Silberner’s 1949 book of that title) than by the issue of his Jewish background, environment, and mindset. This is best illustrated by this article by Michael Ezra, “Karl Marx’s Radical Antisemitism.”

But in the context of the time, Marx’s view of the Jews as money worshippers was rather banal. It was almost unanimously shared among socialists, as Hal Draper reminds us in “Marx and the Economic-Jew Stereotype.”[18] It was especially common among revolutionary Jews as well as among Zionists who were generally socialists. Moses Hess himself, for instance, wrote in “The Essence of Money”: “The Jews, who in the natural history of the social animal-world had the world-historic mission of developing the beast of prey out of humanity have now finally completed their mission’s work.”

What Marx did was to push the stereotype to its limit: he made the love of money not just an attribute of some Jews, but the very essence of the Jews. But by doing so, he was in effect dissolving the Jewish question into a socio-economic question: the Jew becomes the archetypal bourgeois. By this sleight of hand, Marx eliminated the Jewish question once and for all. He would never come back to it.[19]

In fact, never again would Marx target specifically Jewish financiers. Nesta Webster draws attention to that anomaly in her World Revolution: The Plot Against Civilization (1921):

“The period of 1820 onwards became, as Sombart [Werner Sombart, The Jews and Modern Capitalism, 1911)] calls it, ‘the age of the Rothschilds,’ so that by the middle of the century it was a common dictum, ‘There is only one power in Europe, and that is Rothschild.’ Now how is it conceivable that a man who set out honestly to denounce Capitalism should have avoided all reference to its principal authors? Yet even in the section of his book dealing with the origins of Industrial Capitalism, where Marx refers to the great financiers, the stock-jobbing and speculation in shares, and what he describes as ‘the modern sovereignty of finance,’ he never once indicates the Jews as the leading financiers, or the Rothschilds as the super-capitalists of the world.”[20]"
and (my emphasis in red):
"Jewish movements seem to be working history through dialectical antagonisms that ultimately advance the Big Project. The capacity of the Jewish community to present itself either as a religion or as a nationality, depending on the circumstances, is the prime example. After gaining political emancipation in the name of religious freedom in the first part of the 19th century, European Jews were in the position to reclaim their special nationhood. For a few decades, reformed rabbis would ostensibly oppose Jewish nationalism, proclaiming in the 1885 Pittsburgh Conference: “We consider ourselves no longer a nation, but a religion community.”[25] Yet the same Pittsburgh Conference saw no contradiction in adopting the theory of German rabbi Kaufman Kohler, that “Israel, the suffering Messiah of the centuries, shall at the end of days become the triumphant Messiah of the nations,”[26] which amounts to say that Israel is not an ordinary nation, but the super-nation. In the 20th century, any trace of a contradiction between Reformed Judaism and Zionism was removed.
The early collaboration between Marx and Hess and the late encounter between Marx and Graetz both prefigure another dialectical opposition between Communism (the International revolution aimed at destroying Christian nations) and Zionism (the national project aimed at building the Jewish nation). Both movements developed in the same milieu. Chaim Weizmann recounts in his autobiography (Trial and Error, 1949) that in early twentieth-century Russia, revolutionary communists and revolutionary Zionists belonged to the same milieu. Weizmann’s brother Schmuel was a communist, and that was not a source of family discord. These divisions were relative and changeable; many Zionists were Marxists, and vice versa. The borderline was all the more vague that the Communist Bund, born the same year as Zionism (1897), inscribed in its revolutionary agenda the right of the Jews to found a secular Yiddish-speaking nation. As Gilad Atzmon recently wrote, the Bund was “also an attempt to prevent Jews from joining the ‘Hellenic’ route by offering Jews a tribal path within the context of a future Soviet revolution.”

But the most important thing to note is that, from the early days, Jewish revolutionary activity provided Zionists with a diplomatic argument in favor of their alternative program for the Jews. Herzl mentions in his diary (June 4, 1900) that “intensifying Jewish Socialist activities” was a way to “stir up the desire among the European governments to exert pressure on Turkey to take in the Jews” (Palestine was then under Ottoman control). He hawked Zionism as a solution to the problem of Jewish revolutionary subversion when meeting Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1898, and again when meeting Russian ministers in St. Petersburg in 1903.[27] The next generation of Zionists continued the stratagem. Churchill, who spoke with one voice with Chaim Weizmann,[28]dramatized the opposition between the “good Jews” (Zionists) and the “bad Jews” (communists) in his 1920 article “Zionism versus Bolshevism: A struggle for the soul of the Jewish people.” He referred to Bolshevism as “this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization” and to Zionism as the solution “especially in harmony with the truest interests of the British Empire.” (Churchill’s later alliance with Stalin proves that his Zionism was stronger than his anti-communism.)
In the aftermath of World War II, the rivalry between the Communist and the Capitalist worlds remained the indispensable context for the creation and expansion of Israel. That explains why Roosevelt’s administration, largely controlled by Jews, helped Stalin conquer half of Europe and thwarted all attempts to stop him. Curtis Dall, Roosevelt’s son-in-law, has revealed a secret diplomatic channel demonstrating that the White House went out of its way to give the USSR all the time and the armament necessary to invade Central Europe.[29] Thus the Second World War was completed with the determined aim of laying the foundations for the Cold War, that is, a highly explosive polarization of the world that would prove crucial for Project Zion. In fact, during this whole period, it is almost impossible to distinguish, among the Jewish advisors of Roosevelt and Truman on foreign policy, the pro-Communists from the pro-Zionists, as David Martin remarks in The Assassination of James Forrestal. A case in point is David Niles (Neyhus), who was guilty of spying for the Soviets while advising Roosevelt, but then played a key role in Truman’s support of the U.N. Partition Plan and the recognition of Israel.[30]
The Cold War proved instrumental when Nasser, Israel’s most formidable enemy, was pushed into the communist camp in 1955, setting off an intense Zionist campaign to present him as a danger to the stability of the Middle East, and to present Israel, by contrast, as the only reliable ally in the region. The Cold War was also the crucial context for Israel’s defeat of Egypt in 1967 and Israel’s annexation of territories stolen to Egypt, Syria and Lebanon."
