Bernie Sanders and the True Nature of the State

I mostly try to avoid the counterproductive partisan nonsense between the two sides of the one-sided political system.

Occasionally, however, extreme polarization and quibbling over minor issues by antagonistic factions—made hysterical by the echo chamber of political inanities and mental illness—results in revealing what one side would do to the other if it held the rein of state and exercised its prerogative of violence. 

Martin Weissgerber, a top-level Bernie Sanders organizer, was secretly videotaped by Project Veritas. He advocates rounding up his political opponents in throwing them in “re-education” gulags. As for millionaires, he believes their heads should be liberated from their bodies. 

No doubt Mr. Weissgerber, who appears to be in his 20s, would celebrate a Bernie version of the NKVD troikas, the simplified Soviet system of ferreting out and punishing political opponents. The commie troikas did not allow for the presumption of innocence or legal representation of the accused. It was simply assumed when the state accused somebody of being an “anti-Soviet element,” guilt was indisputable and prison or execution inescapable. 

That’s what the kid Weissgerber dreams of for America—a sweeping cultural revolution not much different than the one Mao organized in China, resulting in the murder of millions. It is estimated during Mao’s rule around 80 million people were murdered directly and indirectly by the state. Mao made Hitler and Stalin look like rank amateurs in the practice of mass-murdering political opponents while centralizing and consolidating power. 

It would be interesting to get Weissgerber’s take on the Khmer Rouge, the Communist Party of Kampuchea (Cambodia). His ideology is similar to the Khmer Rouge with mention of guillotines and forced re-education. The Khmer Rouge’s Maha Lout Ploh—a repeat of Mao’s cultural revolution and (sic) Great Leap Forward—ultimately resulted in the organized murder of more than three million people. 

This overgrown child living the violent dream of a now geriatric Weather Underground psychopath was undoubtedly trained to hate and advocate murder by “cultural Marxist” professors and instructors “teaching” at “public” (state-run and taxpayer-financed) institutions. It is likely he harbored violent and envious fantasies before attaining a position as a top-level Bernie Sanders organizer and political activist. 

It’s not likely Bernie Sanders will become president. He will simply fade into the background after Trump is re-elected or a Democrat acceptable to the ruling elite—think dementia candidate Joe Biden—is selected to read from the teleprompter. 

If Trump is indeed re-elected—and this is certainly a possibility now that impeachment is basically a nonstarter—demented fantasists like Weissgerber will take to the street in Antifa fashion, assaulting enemies pointed out by their autocratic leaders and theorists. This will result in furious retaliation and a further widening of the dangerous polarity between political factions. 

This division, polarity, and simmering hate between political groups will ultimately result in an all-out war in America—probably between now and the election, and definitely after if Trump is voted back into office.  

I have no idea how all of this will play out. I know, however, looking back at history, that people advocating and practicing violence against their opponents on behalf of the state—and this is precisely what Weissgerber is advocating in turn if the Bernie vanguard makes it to the Oval Office—are often the first to be singled out, accused, tortured, imprisoned, and executed as “counter-revolutionary” by the new government. This is what happened to Mao’s Gang of Four after the murderous “reforms” in China failed.

The state invariably requires patsies and false flag events to deflect blame and distract the masses of ill-informed and propagandized citizens from real problems and real solutions.

Propaganda and Lies: Iran and Ukrainian Flight PS752

Here is the cardinal rule about government—everything it says through its spokespersons, hired guns, public relations adepts, and the mockingbird corporate media should be considered a self-serving lie, or at best a distortion hammered into shape to fit a predefined agenda.

For instance, we should question who is ultimately responsible for the shootdown of the Ukrainian airliner in Tehran following the assassination of Qassem Soleimani. 

Former CIA military intelligence officer Philip Giraldi believes there is a possibility Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 was a false flag designed to put further pressure on the government of Iran and feed the USAID “opposition” to the mullahs. 

Giraldi writes “there just might  be considerably more to the story involving cyberwarfare carried out by the U.S. and possibly Israeli governments.”

What seems to have been a case of bad judgements and human error does, however, include some elements that have yet to be explained. The Iranian missile operator reportedly experienced considerable “jamming” and the planes transponder switched off and stopped transmitting several minutes before the missiles were launched. There were also problems with the communication network of the air defense command, which may have been related.

Giraldi explains the 

…SA-15 Tor defense system used by Iran has one major vulnerability. It can be hacked or “spoofed,” permitting an intruder to impersonate a legitimate user and take control. The United States Navy and Air Force reportedly have developed technologies “that can fool enemy radar systems with false and deceptively moving targets.” Fooling the system also means fooling the operator. The Guardian has also reported independently  how the United States military has long been developing systems that can from a distance alter the electronics and targeting of Iran’s available missiles.

Naturally, this possibility is not even mentioned by the corporate war propaganda media, with the notable exception of The Guardian. Instead, we are pelted with tweets and news articles purporting to show just how angry the Iranian people supposedly are over the shootdown, accidental or otherwise. 

The establishment media, long-serving as war propagandists, would have you believe the people of Iran care more about the shootdown of an passenger airliner than the four-decade long  economic war against them waged by the USG, Israel, and Saudia Arabia—a war that has the possibility of breaking out into a conflict that will kill far more than the 176 who died when two missiles hit flight PS752. 

This reminds me of a murderous trick pulled by the Israelis. In September 2018, Syrian anti-aircraft defenses shot down a Russian military plane near the Hmeimim airbase where the Russians stage military operations against USG supported terrorists in Syria (and invited, along with Iran and Hezbollah, to do so by Syria, unlike the illegal American occupation and the apparently endless Israeli air raids). 

“A Russian military spokesman said Israeli F-16 pilots were using the Russian plane as a shield while carrying out missile strikes against targets in Syria’s Latakia province and put it in the line of fire from Syrian anti-aircraft batteries,” The Guardian reported at the time. 

Russia’s defence minister, Sergei Shoigu, told a senior Israeli official that Israel bore “full responsibility” for the incident and the death of the Russian crew, a military spokesman said later on Tuesday. Israel’s ambassador in Moscow was summoned to the Russian foreign ministry over the incident.

Putin let it go, however, realizing that pushing the issue too far would worsen the conflict and possibly result in further Russian causalities.

Such caution, however, cannot be attributed to the USG and certainly not Israel. Bibi Netanyahu, the Israeli PM, said Bashir al-Assad and the Syrians were solely responsible for the attack. 

No such caution or diplomacy can be expected from the USG and its current loudmouth know-nothing president, Donald Trump. The death of nearly two hundred people is simply an excuse to whip up hysteria and push forward the covert war against Iran. 

First and foremost, when you read the “news” dispensed by the war propaganda media, you should assume, unless otherwise proven and verified independently, that what they say about Iran and the Middle East is nothing less than a carelessly and hastily assembled pack of lies, distortion, and omissions, all designed to destroy Iran and kill thousands, possibly millions of innocent men, women, and children.

Trump Threatens to Kill Iran’s Spiritual Leader

Trump murdered Qassem Soleimani for “saying bad things” about the USG, according to The Hill. The president, gathered Friday at Mar-a-Lago with donors and supporters, also threatened Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader. 

In other words, if the leader of Iran criticizes the USG for wrecking Iran’s economy and forcing hardship on the people through sanctions, he might find himself targeted by a Hellfire missile.

For Trump, however, criticizing the USG for its endless war crimes comes in second to personally insulting the stable genius. On the day Trump made this threat, Khamenei characterized Trump as a clown, and this prompted the president to basically say he will kill the leader of a foreign nation for saying bad things about him. 

It should be noted Khamenei is not stranger to assassination attempts. In 1981, Mujahedin-e Khalq tried to kill him with an exploding tape recorder, which seriously injured Khamenei, who was Iranian president at the time. His right arm was paralyzed by the attack.  

MEK was delisted as a terrorist organization by Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State. The murderous organization, guilty of killing American citizens, is lauded on both sides of  the artificial political divide. For instance, the former Marxist terror cult has shared friendly relationships with the likes of Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton, Ed Rendell, R. James Woolsey, Porter Goss, Louis Freeh, Michael Mukasey, James L. Jones, Tom Ridge, and Howard Dean. Most receive piles of money for their support. 

Imagine the result if Trump was injured by an exploding tape recorder and the culprit was Iran. The exceptional nation, with its neocons running foreign policy, would waste no time bombing the hell out of Iran, killing thousands, and this would be cheered on by the American people, so easily hoodwinked and ready to believe lies. 

This is precisely why Iran has yet to seriously confront the USG despite its four decades of economic warfare and absurd propaganda pegging it as the world’s top international terrorist nation. However, if we step outside of Bizarro World for a moment and confront reality, we will discover that the USG is the number one terror organization in the world. 

Iran has to go because it is a symbol of resistance to bankster neoliberalism. Donald Trump is the current Mafia don for the financial elite. He is threatening to kill the top leader of Iran—its spiritual as well as political leader—and if he manages to do that, there will be serious blowback, not only against the USG military bases scattered around the Middle East, but quite possibly in the American heartland as well, including the targeting of neocons and others pushing for a war that would benefit Israel and further deplete America’s treasure (or rather, require more debt piled on future generations) and spill an incalculable amount of blood.

David Wurmser and Trump’s Zionist Occupied Brain

It’s antisemitism time. If you criticize Israel and the cadre of chickenhawk neocons steering Donald Trump’s foreign policy, you will be pilloried and exiled to the political wilderness, forever condemned as a white supremacist.

Scratch a little bit beneath the surface and you will discover at the core of this anti-free speech campaign a rabid Zionist, the same Zionist agitators responsible for advocating and organizing the murder of over a million Iraqis. 

It’s no longer permissible to criticize Jewish neocons. The very word “neocon” is considered an antisemitic slur because most of these chickenhawk war criminals are Jewish. It is never mentioned in the NYT or WaPo that the second Iraq mass murder campaign was strictly a Zionist (another word that will get you labeled an antisemite) affair designed to benefit Israel at the expense of the United States. 

Jon Schwarz, writing for The Intercept, tells us something many of us already knew—the forever war neocons are embedded deep within the Trump administration, led by David Wurmser. 

“An influential neoconservative in President George W. Bush’s White House who became a significant force behind the push for war with Iraq in 2003, Wurmser has recently been serving as an informal adviser to the Trump administration, according to new reporting from Bloomberg News. In that capacity, Wurmser helped make the case for the recent drone strike that assassinated Iranian Gen. Qassim Suleimani,” Schwarz writes. 

During the reign of the second dynastic Bush, Wurmser advised Dick Cheney on how best to destroy Iraq and  immiserate millions of people and kill what turned out to be a million and a half Iraqis, the vast majority innocent civilians. 

Wurmer’s inside man in the Trump WH was John Bolton, Trump’s former national security adviser and one of the most vociferous and hateful non-Jewish individuals within the creative destruction klatch. Bolton’s over the top calls for endless violence, cruelty, and his apparent inability to kowtow to the narcissist Trump resulted in his departure from the administration. 

Bolton may be gone but the Zionist blueprint for undermining Israel’s neighbors and gobbling up as much land and expelling (in addition to torturing and murdering) as many native inhabitants as possible. This is being driven from afar and in secret by David Wurmser and his equally repugnant wife, Meyrav, from the heights of the vile Zionists outfit, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Meyrav helped found the organization. As well, she is the director of the Center for Middle East Policy at the neocon-infested Hudson Institute.

Her husband played a key role in the pro-Zionist formulations at the American Enterprise Institute, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies. The Wurmsers are rock-ribbed Zionist provocateurs. 

David Wurmser might be considered a guardian of the neocon mission. In 2018, he sent a letter to Newt Gingrich demanding then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson purge all staffers at the State Department not sufficiently loyal to Trump—that is to say, not sufficiently loyal to the neocon cause, which is Israel’s cause. 

He is responsible in large part (along with his wife, Paul Wolfowitz, and Richard Perle) for A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm, a document prepared for incoming Likud PM Bibi Netanyahu. The document recommends working closely with “Turkey and Jordan to contain, destabilize, and roll back” regional threats (for instance, advocating on behalf of the Palestinians) and using “Israeli proxy forces” based in Lebanon for “striking Syrian military targets in Lebanon.”

If that should “prove insufficient, [Israel should strike] at select targets in Syria proper.” It argues “Israel can shape its strategic environment, in cooperation with Turkey and Jordan, by weakening, containing, even rolling back Syria.” This would create a “natural axis” between Israel, Jordan, a Hashemite Iraq, and Turkey that “would squeeze and detach Syria from the Saudi Peninsula,” which “could be the prelude to a redrawing of the map of the Middle East, which could threaten Syria’s territorial integrity.”

The staying power of the neocons—analogous to the grip of a pit bull—is one of the more remarkable political stories of our time. The exit of the neocons during the second term of George W. Bush was viewed by many as a purge from the government of a group of fanatical ideologues doing the work of a foreign government. 

The neocons, of course, didn’t disappear—they slunk back to their think tanks and foundations and conspired with more politically palatable (and more skilled at telling lies) “humanitarian interventionists” in the Obama administration. 

The result was 30,000 dead in Libya, the engineered influx of crazed Wahhabi mercenaries in Syria (over 600,000 Syrians killed thus far) under the direction of the cackling war criminal Hillary Clinton, then-Secretary of State.

Obama also continued and expanded Bush’s illegal drone murder program and intensified the war against whistleblowers such as Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. Obama redoubled the war on investigative journalism. Despite all this, Democrats consider Obama a saint. 

It has been obvious for many months that Donald Trump is nothing if not an automaton for the Israelis. He routinely fawns over Israeli war criminals and medieval Saudi head-choppers. He has given Israel whatever it wants—billions of dollars a year, recognition through an embassy in contested Jerusalem, a thumbs-up for Israel’s theft of around 700 square miles of land in Syria, encouragement to finally annex the West Bank and squeeze out the Palestinians, considered drugged cockroaches in a bottle by the Zionist settler-racists, and a program aimed at the heart of the Bill of Rights in America to stifle any criticism of this brutal little racist state and its war on Palestinian women and children (along with shooting, killing, and maiming activists, medics, and journalists). 

Of course, Donald Trump is a dupe for fanatical Zionists determined to expel all Arabs and non-Jewish goyim from its half-pint country established on mass graves and the bloody remains of terror attacks (the King David Hotel, Deir Yassin, Lydda, al-Dawayima, Qibya, and many others). 

Trump’s brain is not his own. It is owned by his orthodox Jewish son-in-law and his converted wife. The president’s obsessively self-referential brain is influenced by Sheldon Adelson (he gave Trump over $100 million during the campaign) and his wife Miriam (who wants a “Book of Trump” inserted in the Old Testament), in addition to other Jewish mega-donors, and a groundswell of enthusiastic support among orthodox Jewish voters.

Thus it is hardly a surprise the neocon’s neocon, David Wurmser, is a puppet master driving USG foreign policy in the Middle East. He has the chops, the experience, the appetite for dispossessing and arranging the murder of Palestinians, Iranians, Syrians, and Lebanese.

Pompeo and the Mafia Hit Strategy

The USG Mafia hit on Qassem Soleimani is part of a larger murder campaign, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. 

For the former tank commander, murder—not simply double-tapping the target with a firearm, but blowing him into meaty chunks with a Hellfire missile—is “real deterrence.” 

Pompeo said during a speech at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute “there was ‘a bigger strategy’ behind the killing of Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force, Iran’s elite foreign espionage and paramilitary force.

“President Trump and those of us in his national security team are re-establishing deterrence – real deterrence ‒ against the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.

“Your adversary must understand not only that you have the capacity to impose cost but that you’re in fact willing to do so,” Pompeo said, adding that the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal from which Trump withdrew in 2018 had emboldened Tehran.

The USG Mafia Hit Strategy on steroids is not confined to threatening Iran, however. Pompeo eluded to Russia and China’s leaders being assassinated. 

“The importance of deterrence isn’t confined to Iran,” Pompeo said. “In all cases, we must deter foes to defend freedom. That’s the whole point of President Trump’s work to make our military the strongest it’s ever been.”

He cited the resumption of lethal military aid to Ukraine for defense against Russia-backed separatists, Trump’s withdrawal from an arms control accord with Moscow and tests of a new U.S. intermediate-range cruise missile.

Pompeo also pointed to increased U.S. naval exercises in the South China Sea in response to China’s militarization of disputed islands and Trump’s imposition of tariffs on Chinese imports as aspects of the administration’s deterrence strategy.

“We’re restoring credibility to deterrence,” he said.

Pompeo didn’t come out and say Trump’s government will steer Hellfire missiles specifically at Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, or even Kim Jung-un. The message, however, is inescapable, especially for folks opposed to neoliberal crony capitalist domination of their national economies, industries, public services, and natural resources

Iran wants a nuke to prevent an attack by the USG in collaboration with the Zionist government in Israel. Ditto, North Korea. It remembers when the USG bombed virtually every city, town, and hamlet in the country and killed a third of the population. No doubt the mullahs in Tehran vividly recall Muammar Gaddafi’s fate. They also remember how the CIA colluded with the Brits to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran and installed a monarchial tyrant. 

It is entirely rational to seek the most effective deterrent to foreign invasion and mass murder campaigns waged relentlessly by the crony capitalist neolib USG and its little vicious client, Israel, the racist state where only Jews are considered first-class citizens and Arabs are tortured and killed—or at best maimed (during anti-occupation protests, Israel snipers are instructed to aim for the eyes). 

For neocons, Trumpsters, and Fox News teleprompter readers, “taking out” Soleimani in Mafia hit fashion “was a brilliant move.” 

Yes, of course, murdering leaders of recalcitrant nations is considered a “brilliant move” by psychopaths. The Italian-Jewish Mafia killed opponents one-by-one or in small groups while the USG kills opponents in the thousands, even the millions. The Gambino family and Kosher Nostra founded by Arnold Rothstein (who was himself assassinated) would have loved to take out their opponents with Reaper drones and Hellfire missiles, courtesy of witless US taxpayers and debt-serfs. 

USG embassies were not and are not under threat by Iran. In Iraq, the people protesting outside the embassy are Iraqis. They want the USG and its contractors out of their country which is still reeling from Bush the Lesser’s invasion, a follow-up on more than a decade of child-killing (over 500,000) sanctions and a previous invasion by Junior’s father, the former CIA boss who would become president. 

Corporate war propaganda media is pushing the narrative that Trump impulsively decided to slaughter Soleimani, as if it simply came to him out of the blue. 

Hardly. This is simply another anti-Trump gimmick. If you look beyond this one-dimensional pre-election circus, you’ll see Trump’s orthodox Jewish son-in-law, Sheldon Adelson, and a cast of Zionist characters steering the president into war with Israel’s enemies. Indeed, Trump is driven by a pathological need for attention and this has been successfully exploited by neocons in the service of a tiny nation based on racial and religious superiority. 

The neolib USG with its Israel-first neocon faction is the largest and most deadly Mafia organization in the world. The US government has killed millions since the end of FDR’s war under false pretense and has overthrown countries far and wide. It trains and enables sadistic paramilitaries, has armed crazed Wahhabi jihadists, and is the only country to have used a nuclear weapon against innocent civilians.

Neocons, War Media Exploit the Dead of Ukraine Flight 752

Social media produces idiots, know-nothings raging about Iran and how unfair it is when a US citizen is killed by people who want invaders and occupiers to leave their country, which was mostly destroyed by the USG and its corporate partners in crime.

The “Trump War Room,” a fitting name for a social media account posting faux patriotic hogwash, is not concerned about the million-plus Iraqis killed by the USG and its money-grubbing “national security” partners. 

Meanwhile, Mark Levin, masquerading as a constitutionalist, finds it very interesting that the CIA and USAID folks are disrupting and destabilizing Iran. 

Yes, Mark, it is very interesting when neocons and Zionists work covertly to destabilize countries, subvert elections, assassinate leaders, insert malware, organize violent demonstrations against the medieval mullahs for USG propaganda purposes, and wage relentless economic war, impoverishing millions. 

Political opportunists, such as the dynastically entitled one-time black-faced PM of Canada, are squeezing the shot-down Ukrainian airliner mishap for all it is worth, which isn’t much. 

From Global News: 

Trudeau spoke with Global National‘s Dawna Friesen on Monday about the Canadian response to the plane crash and the ongoing work happening to support the families, identify the victims, and hold Iran to account in the investigation into how the missile that took down the plane was fired.

Not much to investigate here. Iran, blinded by the fog of Israel and Trump’s war, accidentally shot down a civilian jetliner, same as the USG when it shot down Iran Air Flight 655 in 1988, killing 290 innocent civilians. The USS Vincennes lobbed a surface-to-air missile at the domestic aircraft while the warship sat parked in Iranian territorial waters. 

Flight 752 is receiving widespread coverage and has provided Israel and the United States with additional war propaganda talking points. Of course, there is no mention of Israel shooting down Libyan Flight 114 traveling from Tripoli to Cairo in 1973, killing 108 innocents. 

The US neocons, attached at birth to Israel and the Zionist agenda, hate Donald Trump so much they can’t bring themselves to admit he is the most pro-Zionist president in US history. 

Here is “Republican Leader and Representative of California’s 23rd District in the House of Representatives,” Kevin McCarthy. 

Common sense, Mr. McCarthy, would dictate you call for the removal of our troops from the Middle East, the end of the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, and an end to the sort of mass murder you and your fellow corporate crony serving colleagues support without consulting the people you supposedly represent.

But then both “conservative” and “liberal” statists follow national security state marching orders handed down from above, and the American people—who do the fighting and dying in addition to paying the bills—are only relevant when the election circus comes to town.

Israel never gets tired of demanding Americans pay for wars that have zero benefit for the American people and in fact diminish their security as the victims seek retribution (as demonstrated by the death of the US contractor mentioned above). 

The “Jewish state” never gets tired of fear tactics or coming off like the boy who cried wolf, claiming Iran will nuke the entire world if the neocon-dominated USG war machine doesn’t flatten the country like it did Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and Syria.

It is, naturally, antisemitic to point out the truth—these are wars for Israel and they have zero benefit for America. 

In a perfect world, the USG would have never invented atomic weapons, thus motivating everybody else to develop and deploy nukes (in Israel’s case, by stealing the technology). This includes Iran. It knows that if it has deployable nuclear weapons, Israel and the US will be far less likely to invade. 

It should not come as a surprise that the Silicon Valley warmongers, masquerading as touchy-feely liberals and progressives, are busy shutting down any opposition to the ongoing plan to get a war going against Iran. This includes not only antiwar citizens but the leaders of target countries not allowed to voice concern and opposition to the invasion of their nations and the mass murder that will ensue. 

Khamenei is not alone—there are thousands of us cut-off from social media for the crime of calling out the warmongers. The next war will march forward emboldened by neocon lies and without the threat of serious resistance by the commoners, debt-serfs who will be forced at gunpoint to pay for endless war and be expected to quietly and without complaint bury the dead. 

Inner Party member O’Brien would be proud.

Ukraine Airliner Down: Does Anybody Remember USG Targeting IR655?

The shoot-down of a Ukrainian airliner is the latest propaganda ploy by the state to further demonize Iran and prepare for war. Unfortunately, there are a lot of folks who experience amnesia during such events. 

I suppose she deserves a pass, being young and more than likely “educated” in a public school and like far too many Americans believes whatever the USG tells her. 

Obviously, she is unaware of this, rarely talked about in the exceptional nation:

Hannity, Levin, Jones Push for Mass Murder and War Crimes

Trump adviser Sean Hannity is calling for the president to use “the full force of the greatest, most advanced, most sophisticated military this world has ever seen” to flatten Iran and engage in the mass murder of Iranian civilians. 

He is not alone. It appears many alt-righters are calling for war crimes, including talk show performance artist Alex Jones. 

I received an email this morning from an Infowars watcher who says Alex Jones declared at the outset of his show today its OK for the USG to assassinate foreign leaders. Once upon a time, Alex Jones pretended to be a defender of the Constitution and the rule of law, but now that his guy is president, Jones is a reformulated neocon. 

Meanwhile, Republicans are coming out of the woodwork in an effort to outdo each other in blaming Iran for past terrorist attacks. 

Rep. Scott, like his president, is a geopolitical ignoramus. Soleimani had nothing to do with the bombing in Saudi Arabia. Initially, the blame was placed on “Saudi Islamic militants, including many veterans of the Afghan War,” according to The New York Times. 

The FBI eventually blamed Iran, as required by political expediency. What is forgotten here is that the FBI did this to derail Bill Clinton’s thawing of relations with Iran and its then-president, Mohammad Khatami. Ever since, the US has blamed Iran and its “proxy,” Hezbollah for all manner of evil in the Middle East. 

Never mind that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. John Shalikashvili, admitted at the time there wasn’t enough evidence to blame any group or individual. 

In 2001, an indictment was issued in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in Alexandria, Virginia charging members of both the Lebanese and Saudi versions of Hezbollah for the attack. Eight Saudis were also charged. The 9/11 whitewash commission bent over backward to blame Osama bin Laden. Soleimani was not mentioned. 

In fact, at the time, Soleimani was the IRGC commander in Kerman Province. He was busy fighting the Kurds. He didn’t become Quds commander until 1998, two years after the Khobar Towers bombing. 

William Perry, Clinton’s Sec. of Defense, was confused about where the blame should be pinned—on al-Qaeda or Iran. During a June 2007 interview Perry, however, said: “he now believes al-Qaida rather than Iran was behind a 1996 truck bombing at an American military base.”

By 2006, it was official. The high court judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled that Iran and Hezbollah were directly responsible for the attack, never mind the absence of evidence (this is now a routine practice). 

None of this is relevant now that Republicans are demanding full-fledged war on Iran, thus potentially soon providing Israel with a belated Hanukkah and Asarah B’Tevet present. 

“Iran launched an attack against our brave men and women in the region,” said the talk show host. “For years, since 1979, they’ve been at war with us.” 

In fact, these “brave men and women” are illegally and violently occupying a country that never threatened America or the US government. Hannity the historical and geopolitical retard did not mention the fact widespread hatred of the USG by average Iranians is the result of Eisenhower and the Brits overthrowing the democratically elected prime minister of Iran, Mohammed Mosaddeq, and then installing the Shah and his CIA and Mossad trained SAVAK secret police. 

This is precisely why Hannity is cognitively challenged. As history amply demonstrates, the CIA is a far larger threat than Iran or even Russia and China. It is directly responsible for overthrowing Iran’s government. It has a long and extremely bloody track record and is guilty of participating directly and indirectly in the murder of millions of people since its creation as the primary covert terror component of the national security state. 

Next up, the Zionist shill Mark Levin. This “conservative” has turned history upside down with his lies and misinformation. 

Iran didn’t have “democracy” under the Shah. It had a brutal dictatorship that tortured and killed political opponents and rivals. As noted above, this was directly supported by the USG and later Israel. (See The Unwritten History Of Israel’s Alliance With The Shah’s Dictatorship.)

Have the mullahs of Iran murdered opponents? You bet. This is something all states do, and the USG and Israel are at the top of the list. However, Iran is not killing US and Israeli scientists or engaging in concerted economic warfare against America and its people. Iran is not bombing its neighbors and stealing their land. It is not assassinating the Joint Chiefs of Staff or neocons advocating bombing Iran (like big-time Israel and Trump booster Sheldon Adelson called for). 

Finally, the son of Trump has provided us with yet another example of the manufactured  war between Republicans and Democrats. 

Democrats have a support Iran fan club, according to Junior. This is delusion, hallucination, dishonesty, malfeasance, and the continuation of brazen and stupid lies, the sort of behavior that should be expected from the son of a guy who learned his political chops from his personal lawyer, the miscreant Roy Cohen.

Surprise, Iraqi Resistance Bombs Green Zone! 

Sky News, doing what it does best—dispense war propaganda—broadcast this know-nothing report soon after “Iran” attacked the Green Zone in Baghdad this evening. 

This fellow fails to name the group allegedly responsible—Kata’ib Hezbollah, depicted as a zombified Iranian proxy. (On the other hand, this attack may be a false flag to drive the war narrative forward and keep the heat on Iran. Point is, we really don’t know.)

Kata’ib Hezbollah is a Shia paramilitary organization formed when George Bush and his neocon handlers invaded Iraq in 2003. It was specifically organized to resist Dick Cheney’s illegal and brutal invasion. It’s leader, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, was murdered along with Iranian major general Qasem Soleimani on January 3. 

Additionally, the chattering teleprompter readers and newspaper scribblers say almost nothing in regard to the Preamble to the 1899 Hague Convention II on Land War (specifically the Martens Clause) or the 1977 Protocol Additional to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949 relating to the Protection of Victims of International Armed Conflicts.  Article 1, Paragraph 4 refers to armed conflicts “in which peoples are fighting against colonial domination and alien occupation and against racist regimes.”

Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis was killed specifically for his resistance to US occupation in addition to his relationship with Iran, which was natural considering he was a Shia Muslim, as are most Iraqis, and there are strong religious and cultural ties between what are now Iraqi and Iranian Shias. 

But we are not allowed to hear any of that from the war media. Instead, we are told Iran is responsible for the deaths of US soldiers illegally occupying Iraq. Forgotten is that fact both Sunni and Shia Iraqis have resisted US occupation for well over a decade. In the United States of Lies, this resistance is depicted as terrorism. 

Soleimani was murdered because he planned to talk with the Saudis about deescalating tension in the Middle East. Trump’s high-tech Mafia hit on Soleimani was also designed to please the Israelis. They have waged an assassination campaign against Palestinian activists for more than sixty years. Additionally, they have murdered a number of Iranian nuclear scientists and Lebanese Hezbollah leaders and activists (most notoriously Sayyed Abbas Musawi in 1992). It is safe to say the double hit in Baghdad was coordinated with the Israelis. 

Donald Trump is the most outspoken pro-Zionist president in US history. The Zionist agenda, most urgently advocated by Bibi Netanyahu lo these many years, calls for the destruction of Iran on par with the destruction of Iraq and similar criminal acts in Afghanistan,  Syria, and Libya by Bush, Obama, and Trump. Iranian nukes serve as a pretext, however flimsy, to realize the Israeli agenda of political control in neighboring states and the further annexation of land in the Golan and the West Bank (and no doubt beyond; the Israelis have coveted Lebanon’s water resources for decades, i.e., Operation Litani). 

Donald Trump’s Kabuki theater of Fire and Fury must drive the neocons and Israelis up a wall, though. It was a different story under Bush. The neocons simply told a bunch of less than plausible lies, the media did the propagandizing and mesmerizing in preparation for the mass murder to follow, and it was off to the races. 

It can be said we were a somewhat different people in the first couple of years after 9/11. Now most people distracted, they’re inured to war, it has become part of the cultural fabric, it is endlessly portrayed as service to the nation in defense of freedom and liberty—and it’s all bullshit. 

Here’s what the corporate media never tells you. 

The killing of US soldiers in occupied Iraq is legal self-defense and resistance to alien occupation. Iran is not firing ineffective Katyusha rockets into the occupation Green Zone, Iraqis are. Iran is certainly provoking and assisting and can you really blame them? Brother and sister Shias just over the border are long-term occupied by alien invaders and the invaders keep making threats against Iran. 

Reality is irrelevant for the reality TV president. Reality dictates people invaded and occupied will resist, often with devastating result. The most radical Zionists in Israel do not and never have planned to make peace with the Arabs and Muslims around them. They have worked for many decades to undermine Arab nationalism, engage in false-flag deception, assassinate opponents in Mafia fashion, and prevent the barbarians from coming together, to paraphrase the late globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Delisted by Google

Eugene Vollokh writes on his blog the behemoth Google has delisted articles critical of a legal judgment punishing author Jim Fetzer for daring to write a book questioning the official narrative on Sandy Hook. 

Fetzer, a retired university professor, was ordered by the court to pay nearly a half-million dollars to Leonard Pozner, the father of a child allegedly killed at Sandy Hook. 

Google received a request under the plaintiff’s name “asking Google to deindex pages that contain copies of the libelous book, and Google has gone along with those requests. Google generally does remove from its indexes links to material that a court has found to be libelous, so Google searches for such material no longer find it,” Volokh writes. 

I can’t think of a more perfect contemporary example of Orwell’s truth incinerating Memory Hole, a mechanism for eradicating the off-narrative. 

But a week and a half ago, another request came in to Google, and this request also sought to deindex material that simply discussed the case and criticized the court decision, such as various copies of “The Legal Lynching of a Truth-Seeker: Jim Fetzer’s Stalinist-Style Show Trial” and “Sandy Hook and the Murder of the First Amendment.” The court’s judgment of course didn’t find these items (posted in response to the judgment) to be libelous, and it offers no basis for Google to deindex them.

I wrote and posted the latter article in October. In it, I argue the lawsuit judgment against Fetzer represents another attack on an already decimated First Amendment, which is now almost completely irrelevant and, in the case of writing about Sandy Hook, might as well not exist at all. 

“The Fetzer trial is a big win for the ruling elite,” I wrote. “For years now, it has worked tirelessly to characterize investigative journalism outside limits imposed by the government as criminal—and now, according to the FBI, as terrorism.”

Last week my Twitter account was put in the deep freeze for repeating what Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity said of the Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity. I used the same selectively-banned pejorative to criticize Hannity the lunkhead teleprompter reader after he justified the murder of a foreign leader in broad daylight.

Not even Mossad is brazen and outrageous as Donald Trump and his Reaper drones bristling with Hellfire missiles. Israel is notorious for its deception. Trump is a ham-fisted primitive with a mobile phone and a Twitter account. 

Now that war looms—as it has since Donald Trump the promise-breaker took office—we can expect more Orwellian behavior on the part of the government and its media. The state cherishes war, for only then can it truly trample liberty to the utmost. You’re either with us, or you’re with the terrorists. 

The severity of the crackdown will depend on the severity of any military conflict between Iran and the US and its coalition of willing neoliberal nation-states, the latter increasingly cold footed as Trump tweets like a Mafia don at a meeting between the families. 

It could be more Trump political Kabuki theater. Kim Jung-un found out just what a used car salesman Trump really is. 

Or it could be worse, not only for the average Iranian suffering under the unwarranted onslaught of US economic and now military warfare but also for the average American. Not simply through the probability of retaliatory terrorism in America responding to US government terrorism ongoing in the Middle East for decades, but also as economic victims as the global petroleum-driven economy collapses.
