Syria and the Kurds: Trump Demonstrates Ignorance of History and Geography

According to the stable genius, the Kurds are similar to violent children playing in a bloody sandbox. “They’ve got a lot of sand over there. So there’s a lot of sand that they can play with,” he said, once again displaying his remarkable ignorance and monosyllabic arrogance. 

The areas claimed by the Kurds are to the northwest and northeast along the Turkish border. The latter is east of the Euphrates and is anything but a sandy desert—it is a fertile region known as Jazira located on the eastern plateau. It is often referred to as the “breadbasket” of Syria. 

Trump went on to characterize the people of the Middle East as violent and intractable because that’s “what they do.” 

Under the rule of the Ottoman Empire, much of the Middle East remained largely free of war and violence. Autonomous communities were organized as millets along religious and tribal lines, thus ensuring peace. This stability, which began to erode during the nineteenth century, came to an end with the defeat of the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. 

The current situation in the Middle East is a direct result of Britain and France carving up the region under colonial “spheres of influence” put forth in the Sykes-Picot Agreement. Britain promised the Arabs autonomy if they helped defeat the Ottoman Empire during the war. T.E. Lawrence (“Lawrence of Arabia”) promised a united Arab kingdom of greater Syria, encompassing present-day Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and parts of Iraq and Jordan. The British never intended to follow through on this promise and subsequently betrayed the Arabs. 

 Sumaia N. Masoom writes:

Western governments arbitrarily drew lines dividing up the land forming the remains of the Ottoman Empire, ignoring traditional ethnic, religious, and tribal divisions. To add insult to injury, however, Sykes-Picot… double-crossed the Hashemites, who had been promised their own kingdom in return for helping the Western forces take down the Ottomans from the inside. Rather than becoming stewards of one of the greatest kingdoms the Middle East had ever seen, the Hashemites were instead thrown out of Syria, the new French protectorate… In the words of one historian, the agreement was “greed allied to suspicion and so leading to stupidity.” 

The current conflict between the Kurds and Turkey is a result of British and French colonialism, violence, and treachery. Treaty of Sèvres in 1920 promised the Kurds a homeland, but the promise was never implemented, primarily due to the response on the part of Turkish nationalists. The fate of the Kurds was sealed with the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923. 

“Today, more than 30 million Kurds, and millions of Assyrians, Yezidis and other stateless ethnicities straddle the makeshift borders originally created by Mark Sykes and Francois Picot 100 years ago,” notes The Kurdish Project. 

It’s true the Kurds fighting Turkey are not “angels,” as Trump said. For instance, Amnesty International has accused the Kurds of ethnic cleansing of non-Kurds. 

“By deliberately demolishing civilian homes, in some cases razing and burning entire villages, displacing their inhabitants with no justifiable military grounds, the Autonomous Administration is abusing its authority and brazenly flouting international humanitarian law, in attacks that amount to war crimes,” Lama Fakih, Senior Crisis Advisor at Amnesty International, said in October 2015. 

Additionally, the establishment of the state of Israel, made possible under the Balfour Declaration, has fueled wars and conflicts in the Middle East. Israel has a long history of subverting and attacking its neighbors, most recently Syria. 

According to Adeyinka Makinde:

After the establishment of Israel in 1948, a national policy of weakening Arab and Muslim states, balkanizing them, or keeping them under a neo-colonial state of affairs has persisted. The prevailing logic was and always has been that any stable, nationalist government in the Arab world poses an existential threat to Israel… The deliberate and calculated intervention in the affairs of the Arab world is something which [Oded Yinon, author of “A Strategy for Israel in the 1980s”] is content to admit is unnecessary given the artificiality of the states which are the product of imperial draughtsmen.”

Considering the short reach of Trump’s intellectual ability and his refusal to consult history and geography before making simplistic declarations—to say nothing of his emotional attachment to Israel—the tumultuous state of affairs in the Middle East will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future. All Democrat political candidates to date have promised to maintain the present status quo with the Jewish state. The House of Representatives, dominated by Democrats, overwhelmingly signed off on a resolution calling for US troops to remain illegally in Syria. 

Finally, I have no hope for the return of US troops from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan in the short and even the long term. Forever war in the Middle East will continue so long as the ruling elite control US foreign policy from behind the scenes and control what is fallaciously called “democracy” in the United States.

Democrat “Debate” Ignores War Crimes of the State

Did you watch the Democrat debate? I didn’t. I haven’t had cable television and access to the alphabet propaganda networks for well over a decade. I suppose I could have watched it on the web, but why bother? The outcome was predictable. 

For instance, it was predictable the candidates had no intention of addressing the forever wars engineered by the ruling elite. That is a strict no-go zone. Ask Tulsi Gabbard what happens when a hopeful dwells too closely on war and its consequences. The war party propaganda media have relentlessly attacked her. 

And yet, we can’t trust Tulsi to follow through. On Wednesday, virtually every member of the House of Representatives, both Republican and Democrat, supported a resolution to condemn Trump’s decision to move troops out of Syria. Here is the final roll call. 

Scroll down to the bottom of the document. Those not voting include Gabbard and Elijah Cummings. Mr. Cummings had an excuse—he was in the hospital, awaiting death. But what about Tulsi? She didn’t vote “nay” on this bill, more than likely due to its deceptive wording—manufactured outrage over Turkey’s decision to invade northern Syria and massacre an unknown number of Kurds. 

Do you really think the Demopublican war party cares about the Kurds? Of course not. The resolution is another anti-Trump stunt designed to tarnish the self-proclaimed stable genius as we slip and slide into the election season. 

Tulsi opted out, realizing if she voted against the bill she would be ruthlessly pilloried by the war propaganda media, not that it really matters—they have gone after her for months now, even though she carts around the same identity demagoguery as her fellow Democrats.

If we really want to know what the Dem side of the Demopublican party favors, it might be instrumental to read a Julian Zelizer op-ed posted at CNN. 

Mr. Zelizer enumerates what he considers top priorities for the red and blue serpentine hydra navigating the murky water of the swamp. 

What should immigration policy look like in the 21st century? How would they define the limits of presidential power? Will internationalism continue to be a priority—in terms of policy and institutions—over the next decade? What are the steps that need to be taken to curb the devastating effects of climate change? How can the federal government start to reverse the growing economic inequality that defines our country? How can we begin a new phase of the civil rights movement that deals with institutional racism? What are the key goals in the pursuit of women’s full equality? How can we do more to ensure that people are not discriminated against because of their sexuality? What is the proper role of government in taxing and regulating the economy?

Did you see anything in there about ending the wars? Neither did I. Instead, we are subjected to unabashed veneration of war crimes. 

The history of great leadership revolves around moments when US presidents have been able to tackle these sorts of challenges. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman defeating the forces of fascism and participating in the establishment of institutions such as the United Nations and NATO that entrenched liberal alliances…

Nazism—not fascism per se, which is alive and well within the state—was primarily defeated by Russia, not FDR (who, it can be argued, lied America into a war it overwhelmingly wanted nothing to do with) or Truman (who is the only human to have presided over nuking hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese civilians). 

As a nation, it is clear that we are in desperate need of great leaders. We face an enormous number of problems and crises that keep going unaddressed from one administration to the other. The debates should offer a first forum for voters to hear what a potential president has to say about how we can get out of these messes.

No, as a nation, we need to reject what the ruling corporate elite designates as “great leaders,” modeled on the aforementioned war criminals. 

The reason “problems and crises… keep going unaddressed from one administration to the other” is simple—first, there is very little difference between leaders selected by the state, and second the ruling elite thrive on crises, most manufactured in Hegelian ordo ab hoc (order out of this) fashion, a very effective method of emotionally manipulating the plebs and gaining consensus for war, torture, mass surveillance, and rampant violations of international law.

Finally, and somewhat comically, liberal Democrats are expressing their outrage that supposed liberal lesbian Ellen DeGeneres yucked it up with “conservative” war criminal George W. Bush during an NFL game in Texas. 

Of course, as framed by the corporate media, this incident had nothing to do with Bush’s neocon wars of mass destruction, but rather LGBT issues that are of far more importance to liberals than the ongoing wars that have killed well over a million innocent people and destroyed entire nations. 

DeGeneres would have us follow her “lessons in kindness.” However, her version of soft and squishy (and highly selective) kindness seems to be tailored for those who sit in exclusive boxes at football games played in stadiums paid for by taxpayers. She can forgive Bush for his support of anti-LGBT legislation while completely ignoring he is one of the vilest war criminals in recent memory.

Israel’s Mistress of Sex Entrapment Escapes Justice

According to the New York Post, two of the supposedly late sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein’s co-conspirators in the rape of minor girls—Ghislaine Maxwell and Jean-Luc Brunel—are hiding out in the Brazilian Rivera of Santa Catarina. 

A former cop traced the pair through their phones to the posh resort, according to the New York newspaper. 

The lurid front-page story of sex with children and Mossad blackmail has slipped largely from the news. Investigations into the disgusting entrapment scheme appear to be going nowhere. Both Maxwell—a documented Mossad operative—and Brunel have nothing to fear. It is unlikely they will be arrested and sent to the United States to face justice for their roles in the molestation of an unknown number of girls. 

Maxwell was allegedly photographed at an In-N-Out fast-food joint in California back in August. I say “allegedly” because researchers, relying on photo metadata, say the photos are fake. 

Regardless, a message was sent when the photos appeared in the media—Ghislaine Maxwell is untouchable. The farce was punctuated by a book Ghislaine was supposedly reading—“The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives,” by Ted Gup. 

Here’s the takeaway from the sordid affair—Israel’s Mossad is free to do whatever it decides necessary to protect its special status. From stealing state secrets, pilfering uranium to build atomic bombs, dancing before the backdrop of a burning WTC where 3,000 innocents died, and killing US sailors without consequence, Israel can do pretty much whatever it wants in the United States and the West. 

Every member of Congress knows you don’t call out the racist state of Israel for its crimes (ethnic cleansing, the murder of journalists, medics, and the torture of children).

In fact, our “representatives” are expected to ignore murderous and racist Israeli settlers killing  Palestinians and flooding schools with raw sewage, among other despicable crimes. This ongoing cruelty and inhumanity are rarely if ever reported by a corporate media celebrating Israel’s “democracy” ad nauseam. 

Instead of justice and punishment for crimes against humanity, Israel receives billions of dollars every year from oblivious American taxpayers (or, more accurately, their children and grandchildren because the state now operates in deficit fashion, borrowing trillions the unborn will be obliged to pay). 

As I wrote earlier this year, the culprits in this execrable political blackmail scheme will never face a judge and a jury, and will certainly never see the inside of a prison cell. 

Ghislaine is laughing in your face from her manse on the Brazilian Rivera. She is an asset cherished by the criminal and pariah state of Israel and will be protected, so long as she doesn’t make the same mistakes made by her double agent father (Mossad, British intelligence), MP Robert Maxwell. 

Finally, it should be noted Ghislaine’s father was given a state funeral in Israel. After all, Robert Maxwell “was behind… [Mossad’s] successful attempt to install a trapdoor in software intended for government use, allowing the Israelis a direct pipeline into a vast network of computers installed with undetectable malware,” writes Jennifer Matsui. 

His daughter’s service is of equal if not greater importance—keeping pedophile influencers and “representatives” on the zionist reservation through blackmail.

Stable Ignoramus Trump: Kurds Didn’t Help US Win WWII

It is a strange experience witnessing The Donald fumble his way through foreign policy, which he knows almost nothing about. In the awkward press conference below, Trump stumbles his way through history. His explanation for abandoning the Kurds? They didn’t help “us” win the Second World War.  

Undoubtedly, there were Kurds fighting during that completely avoidable carnage that killed more than 70 million people, 25 million of that debated number in Russia alone. Trump does not know if soldiers of Kurdish ancestry died at Normandy. The stable ignoramus is famous for not doing his homework and talking off the top of his coiffured head. 

Moreover, the United States did not single-handedly “win” the Second World War—that achievement should be credited to Stalin and the Soviet Union. Ditto Syria. It was Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah that beat back the CIA and Saudi Arabia’s murderous jihadi proxies, not Trump and his neocons. 

Abel Cohen writes: 

America shouldn’t mythologize a war against the Nazis we didn’t wage until the last minute. Like Truman said: “If Germany is winning the war, we ought to help Russia; if Russia is winning, we ought to help Germany, and in that way let them kill as many as possible.” America waited as long as it could to join the war—and ended it by firing the first shots of the next one.

Truman’s final homicidal act was to drop two atomic bombs on Japan, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians and traumatizing millions of others. He then inaugurated the Cold War, founded the national security state, and set the stage for the military-industrial complex which, incidentally, Trump mentioned during his press conference. Since taking office, Trump has acted as salesman-of-the-month for the MIC, selling death merchandise far and wide. This is just about the only growth industry in a crumbling America. 

The Kurds probably knew Trump would betray and leave them at the mercy—and, if news reports are accurate, mercy is in short supply—of Turkey with its resurgent form of Sunni Islam exploited by President Tayyip Erdogan. 

“Uniting around our common Islamic identity is the only way to solve the Kurdish problem,” a leader of Justice and Development party told The Economist. “Islam bound us in Ottoman times and during the war of independence, why not today?”

Left out of the discussion is the fact two-thirds of Kurds follow the Shafi‘i madhhab, which distinguishes them from Arabs and Turks in the region who are primarily Hanafi. In Islam, like any religion, divergent sects rarely make peace. For example, consider the death count attributed to the Reformation and Counter-Reformation in Europe (instrumentally, the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre, responsible for more than 30,000 dead in France).

Erdogan’s solution to the “Kurdish problem” is to invade Syria and Iraq and kill as many Kurds as possible. 

Trump’s response is to move US troops—illegally in Syria in violation of its national sovereignty—out of harm’s way, which is, of course, the sensible thing to do, never mind the ranting criticism of neocons and their Republican and Democrat fellow travelers. 

However, it is impossible to hold this president to anything. He changes with the wind, following the weathervane of his outsized ego.

Tulsi and Rigged Elections

Tulsi Gabbard, who has at best minimal support by Democrats (around one percent), and zero from the corporate DNC, posted the following video earlier today.

There are so many of you who I’ve met in Iowa and New Hampshire who have expressed to me how frustrated you are that the DNC and corporate media are essentially trying to usurp your role as voters in choosing who our Democratic nominee will be.

This, of course, is nothing new, but thanks to Tulsi for reminding us of how “elections” are conducted. In fact, the state long ago corrupted the process and has selected candidates for long as anybody can remember. 

How is it possible a cognitively challenged and corrupt hack like Joe Biden is number one in the running—or was until Elizabeth Warren took that spot away from him? It’s possible because Biden is a trusted asset eager to do whatever he is told, same as Obama, Bush the lesser, Clinton (a “brother by another mother”), Bush the elder, Reagan… on and on, down the line. Like Hillary Clinton, the Democrat establishment believes it is Biden’s “turn” to read the teleprompter. All the others, well, they’re spoilers. 

They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten.

That replacement happened decades ago. Trump won the election because our rulers left the election process intact, arrogantly confident their handpicked candidates will win because only those who have come up through the system are permitted to run. It’s left intact as a public relations gimmick designed to fool the proles who are, regrettably, all too easy to control—or were until Trump appeared on the scene. 

Tulsi is spot on about the “debates,” which are nothing of the sort. Indeed, they are a form of televised bread and circuses—bread because most Americans receive some kind of support from the government, and a circus because all circuses are comical, theatrical, and well-scripted. 

As for being informed, that’s the last thing the ruling elite want. They have us believe in fantasies so absurd they may as well be props in a Luis Buñuel film—for instance, killing people in foreign lands is humanitarian and the economy is doing great (never mind the unemployed, the homeless, and record debt, both governmental and personal). 

In order to bring attention to this serious threat to our democracy, and ensure your voice is heard, I am giving serious consideration to boycotting the next debate on October 15th. I will announce my decision within the next few days. With my deepest aloha, thank you all again for your support.

This is commendable, although, sadly, an almost transparent blip on the political radar screen. Big corporate media will certainly not take notice, and if they perchance do it will be with snide commentary. 

The soft totalitarian machine rejects the socialist palliatives of Elizabeth Warren. She appears to be anti-corporatist, and that is inexcusable. Many of our political and social problems are related to the domination of corporations, most of the crony variety. 

Elizabeth Warren will be unable to break the corporate stranglehold on America. It is pure insanity to believe otherwise. The Democrat and Republican parties—one party disguised as two—will not savage corporations with taxation and redoubled punitive regulation, not if they wish to remain in Congress and receive money to run obscenely expensive campaigns. 

Warren will be overshadowed by the Hildabeast, Hillary Clinton, who is determined to be president. She will enter the race sometime next year, overturning the apple cart of other hopefuls, all spouting the same wealth distribution nonsense because, after all, a well-trained and ceaselessly indoctrinated public, most on a modern version of the Roman Cura Annona grain dole, love free stuff (stolen from others).

No way will the DNC accept Elizabeth Warren as the nominee. She will be subverted, the same way Bernie Sanders was. 

Most Americans don’t trust or like Hillary, but that hardly matters. 

The days of Trump may soon be over. If he’s not impeached on spurious grounds, he will enter the race under a toxic cloud of accusation and unproven high crimes and misdemeanors greatly amplified by a propaganda media. Polls consistently show he is losing traction, and the MAGA crowd is increasingly disillusioned, unable to realize its populist agenda. 

I’m sorry, Tulsi. Your effort to unmask the subversion of the election system will largely fall on deaf ears. As of this morning, the above video garnered a mere 800 views.

It will take more than a “debate” boycott to send the message. It will take a revolution to finally drain Trump’s swamp, end the endless wars, and force transnational corporations and foreign governments (most egregiously Israel) out of the bed they have shared for so long with our “representatives,” who are largely nothing more than self-seeking sociopaths on short leashes.

Steve Bannon: You’re a Nut Case If You Believe in the Deep State

There isn’t a state within a state—popularized as the term Deep State—and if you believe this, you’re a nut case according to Steve Bannon. It’s simply a big bureaucracy, and it’s right out there in the open for all to see, according to Trump’s former White House strategist. 

If that were indeed the case, you’d be able to stroll into a Bilderberg meeting or one organized by the Council on Foreign Relations or the Trilateral Commission. These guys decide your destiny in private, behind closed doors guarded by police and security details. 

Bannon is considered one of the shining lights of the so-called Alt-right, the “New Right,” the “Dissident Right,” whatever. His inability or unwillingness to admit the obvious reveals something—he is a sellout and has always been a sellout. 

Bannon is a member of the “dissident” establishment squaring off loudly against the “resistance” establishment—two factions of the same beast engaged in divisive, often scripted theatrics—and the time has arrived to let go of the well-documented fact a financial elite, hereditary aristocracy, and transnational corporations control governments around the world. 

See, if you want to be “the infrastructure, globally, for the global populist movement,” you will have to make compromises, the same or similar compromises made by any other politician. 

Steve is a former Goldman Sachs banker, so he has a good idea of how the system works. He once admitted an affinity for Vladimir Lenin.

“Lenin,” he answered, “wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.” Bannon was employing Lenin’s strategy for Tea Party populist goals. He included in that group the Republican and Democratic Parties, as well as the traditional conservative press.

Except he really doesn’t want to control the state—he wants to own it, or pretend to own it, a wish that will never be, even though he agrees with the ruling elite there is no such thing as a deep state and those who believe in “conspiracy theories” have lost their marbles.  

Bannon later denied his populism is based on the ideology of revolutionary communism that ultimately resulted in the murder of tens of millions of people. 

As for the Tea Party, it did not begin as a populist group. It came together to oppose the financial elite that Bannon insists are not in control of the state. 

In 2018, Ron Paul wrote:

The movement commonly referred to as the tea party arose in opposition to the 2008 bank bailouts. The tea party grew as its focus shifted to opposition to President Obama’s policies, particularly his stimulus spending bill, cap-and-trade legislation, and, of course, the health care plan tea party leaders successfully branded as Obamacare. In its early days, the tea party was equally opposed to big spenders in both parties. In fact, it was often harder on Republicans than on Democrats. Tea party groups even backed primary challengers to Republican incumbents.

Paul writes that the GOP subverted the original Tea Party. It now operates as a cheerleading section for establishment Republicans like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

Not unlike Stalinist historical revisionism, the supposed Tea Party Republicans airbrushed out the original tea party historiography and replaced it with interventionist policies—statist interventions both abroad and at home—and the original Tea Party was denigrated as a gaggle of blue-sky isolationists and worse, libertarians. 

Bannon now agrees with his erstwhile foes—the deep state and what Peter Dale Scott (who coined the term) calls “parapolitics,” go no deeper than the establishment parties (essentially a single party) and the entrenched bureaucracy of the state. 

Time spent at Harvard, the military, Breitbart, and Goldman Sachs forged Bannon’s populist ideology, therefore it makes sense he does not see a government within a government and dismisses it as a Turkish or Egyptian thing, an impossibility in America. 

In this regard, he agrees with establishment Democrats, said to be his dire enemies and destroyers of western civilization and the belief in God. Bannon is in total denial of the fact a mega-wealthy financial elite and its internationalist corporate partners are destroying what was once upon a time a republic.

Govt. Gatekeeper Forces Establishment Journo to Admit He is a Propagandist

Ben Johnson, a journalist working for the Atlantic owned Defense One, wasn’t allowed to enter the exceptional homeland until he told a government goon (Customs and Border Protection “staffer”) he writes propaganda. 

The goon held up Watson’s passport. He wouldn’t return it until the guy admitted writing propaganda. An exasperated Watson did so and was allowed back into the country after the goon copied everything on his devices.  There isn’t a Bill of Rights on the border, even if you’re a citizen of the indispensable nation. It’s a Constitution-free zone and you are at the mercy of vindictive and brain-dead border interrogators. 

I sort of feel sorry for Watson, but not too much. He’s a mote in a corporate media machine responsible for turning America into a highly polarized, neurotic, and hysterical mess on the verge of slipping into mass psychosis and civil war. The nation’s not a house divided—it’s a house on fire and the firefighters are passed out on opioids. It will burn to the ground. 

I’m not saying Watson is complicit in this. I know absolutely nothing about him beyond what I read in the Stamford Advocate, and then The Washington Post. 

I can understand WaPo defending one of its own at the border, but would the same apply to Alex Jones? But he’s not a journalist, you might argue, he’s a fake news provocateur, therefore the First Amendment, or what’s left of it, doesn’t apply. 

I agree he’s a performance artist, as his lawyer admitted, but even so, he’s entitled to say whatever he likes, never mind the clownishness. 

I believe Orwell said it. Some animals are more equal than others. 

A dumbass vengeful bully reading the president’s tweets gets to decide if a “fake news” journalist will be allowed to return home. 

Mr. Watson probably doesn’t know we live in a police state. Maybe he does now. The Atlantic, out there on the vanguard of vengeful Trump-haters, will no doubt attribute Watson’s maltreatment to the president and his mob of populists, otherwise known as deplorables. 

Problem is, Trump isn’t a populist. He’s not interested in “the people” or their problems, most created by the government. Donald Trump is too busy driving his obese and cognitively hobbled ego around town on an eight-wheel drive wagon dumper. He used to get his ideas from the leggy and smarmy cast reading from teleprompters over at Fox News. But that honeymoon seems to be over. Even the Drudge Report has turned on Trump. It seems Ann Coulter snarls at him daily now.

It took a while, but those of us working and writing outside corporate propaganda media (compliments of the CIA and its Mighty Wurlitzer) are lately considered white nationalists and terroristic conspiracy theorists, as the FBI would have it.  

If you want to be safe and earn awards, you’ll work for The Atlantic and the Emerson Collective, never mind pesky gatekeepers on the border. After Hillary is elected, there will be a change of the guard. 

The bullies and thumb-sitters will be retrained. They will in Pavlovian fashion regard populists, MAGAites, the “Dissident Right,” constitutionalists, libertarians, free thinkers, radio talkshow hosts, and all flyover country deplorables who refuse narratives churned out by the state and its media, as white nationalists and conspiracy mongering terrorists out to destroy the neoliberal version of democracy. 

After Trump is gone and Hillary (or suitable clone) sits on the throne, there will be hell to pay. 

It will undoubtedly become mandatory on pain of fine and imprisonment to mindlessly accept there are hundreds of sexual preferences, climate change will eat us alive (we must move into mud huts immediately), millions of post-slaves are due billions of devalued dollars (even the gangbangers selling meth down on the corner deserve free money and special accommodation), and anybody from anywhere is free to “immigrate” to America and receive free everything. 

The Final Purge is coming. It won’t be long now. 

The neoliberal elite that has lorded over financial (the Federal Reserve, banksters) and social policy (the welfare state) since the end of the completely unnecessary Second World War are shaken to the core. Trump, Russia, China, and the white nationalist free thinkers are the problem. It’s time for a witch hunt, a Medieval Inquisition following to the letter an updated ad extripanda

Everything is starkly black and white. If you reject the agenda—world government, global corporate plantation, and endless debt servitude for the peasants—you will be picked off sooner or later.

I believe the identity lemmings will also fall victim. The elite doesn’t believe the demented palaver of gender binarism and anamorphic climate change. It has but one belief—the supremacy of raw psychopathic power, the hegemonic drive to control everything on the planet and rub out whatever stands in the way. 

Prepare for Hillary to step in and overshadow Elizabeth Warren and the rest of the “progressive” control freaks running for president. Joe Biden is done and the rest of the pack are, well, crack-brained sycophants mimicking identity gibberish. None of them will make the grade. They’re simply a bizarre and irrational warm-up act for the grand finale.

Assange is a “Lab Rat” Force-fed “BZ Variants”

I don’t know where Karen Kwiatkowski gets her information. She is former military, so I assume she has insider information on the torture, breaking down, and eventual murder of Julian Assange.

She writes at Lew Rockwell’s website today:

Julian Assange is reported to [be] very thin, very sick and being treated at this point, as little more than a “lab rat” by his state doctors and interrogators at Belmarsh.  Word is that his encryption key ring (with his private keys that unlock his various public keys) has already been extracted, under physical duress, cold, light and noise torture, food deprivation, BZ variants, some experimental, and now that he is very physically weak, PCP.  The arrests have started and they won’t stop until the injured parties—mainly the US government—have satisfied their bloodlust.

If this is indeed true, whistleblowers having contributed or reached out to WikiLeaks are in serious danger. 

If the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of donors of information to WikiLeaks around the world haven’t begun to already, they need to rapidly take cover—legal, physical, operational and otherwise.

I’m not certain Assange will live long enough to be deported. I believe the plan is as follows—torture Assange slowly to death, thus sending a strong message to those who would expose the crimes of the state. 

Finian Cunningham writes:

Evidently, his detention is being used by the British government (no doubt at the behest of Washington) in order to destroy his health and very being. At age 48, his physical and mental condition are deteriorating by the day under the extreme conditions which amount to torture, as the UN special rapporteur Nils Melzer noted after visiting the prisoner back in May this year. The UN report called for Assange’s immediate release.

Julian Assange’s father, John Shipton, during an interview in late September with Strategic Culture, had harsh words for Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden, who deemed Assange a cyber-terrorist. 

US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, moron and crook or if you prefer, crook and moron, if memory serves, first uttered this phrase purportedly bringing Julian under the Patriot Act as a terrorist, thereby able to be extra-judicially murdered. Floundering morons repeat meaningless phrases echoing other bubble-head nonsense. Everyone of those morons are horrified by and terrified by truth and facts which everyone all can see and read on Wikileaks.

Forget the buffoon and establishment lickspittle Biden, the real agenda, as expressed by Hillary Clinton, is the murder of Assange. 

Venezuelan-American lawyer, writer, and journalist, Eva Golinger, understands the state’s endgame:

Trump Admin. Reigniting War Against Syria

The neocons are not about to give up and admit defeat. Due primarily to Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah, the presence of the Islamic State is now considerably reduced in Syria. 

This is, of course, unacceptable for the neocons and Trump’s State Department, so last week Sec. State Pompeo accused Syria once again of using chemical weapons. 

Right on par, Sen. Lindsay Graham inserted himself. 

There is no evidence this incident occurred. This is the case with all of the supposed chemical attacks in Syria. 

From The Guardian, May 22, 2019. 

The use of chlorine was alleged by the Idlib province health directorate but has not been corroborated by monitoring groups or international media. No casualties were reported in the mountainous area, where most residents have fled because of fighting… Morgan Ortagus, a state department spokesman, said in a statement on Tuesday: “We are still gathering information on [Sunday’s] incident, but we repeat our warning that if the Assad regime uses chemical weapons, the United States and our allies will respond quickly and appropriately.”

Pompeo sat on the flimsy allegation for months. It is of use now because the State Department has decided once again to turn up the heat on Iran, this time for supposedly attempting to deliver a large tanker of oil to Syria. 

Pompeo’s remarks alarmed Tanker Trackers, a service that tracks tanker activity with leading satellite and maritime tracking technology companies. 

The service tweeted it wasn’t happy when it discovered its information is being used as part of Pompeo’s neocon agenda and its propaganda. 

“As we have warned all along, the Iranian regime has once again reneged on its assurances to the international community about its intentions to transport illicit oil to the murderous Assad regime,” a State Department spokeswoman said early last month.

The sale is not a violation of international law or a United Nations resolution. Iran has decided to ignore an EU sanction imposed on Syria in an unrelated matter concerning an individual who owns a Syrian oil refinery and an alleged violation of human rights. 

“The Adrian Darya-1—formerly known as Grace 1—was released by Gibraltar authorities on August 15, after Tehran offered assurances that the ship will not make its way to Syria because the Assad regime is under an EU oil embargo,” New Europe reported on September 9. 

Iran was not obliged by “assurances to the international community” and the delivery is entirely legal.

The US government is a serial abuser of international law. The current neocon-captured administration violated the Iran nuclear deal and shifted blame to a previous president. It does not believe in diplomacy, preferring instead lies, intimidation, and economic warfare.

Neocon: Trump “Misunderstood” On War to Destroy Syria

“The United States’ special representative for Syria has defended the controversial decision by President Donald Trump to withdraw troops from the Middle Eastern country and declare that the war against the so-called Islamic State had been won,” Trump’s envoy to Syria, James Jeffrey, told the German newspaper, Deutsche Welle. 

Jeffrey is Trump’s the United States Special Representative for Syria Engagement (sic) and the Special Envoy for the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIL.

Talking to DW’s Conflict Zone host Tim Sebastian in Washington, Ambassador James Jeffrey rejected the idea that Trump’s decision had been costly and misleading, and instead said the president had been “misunderstood.”

“President Trump made it clear at the time to us and to other leaders that he wasn’t losing the bubble, as we say, on the fight against ISIS, which he recognized could reconstitute itself,” Jeffrey said.

Not “losing the bubble” means US troops must remain in Syria, a direct violation of that nation’s national sovereignty and a threat to its very existence. 

Trump’s message was unmistakable. He wanted to remove troops in Syria. It would appear he had a good talking to by his neocon-CFR advisers and possibly his good friends in Israel—all advised him to stay the course, lest the Pentagon ISIS experiment in destabilization fades away, or is defeated by the Syrians.

The objective has not changed—the wholesale destruction of Syria, balkanized into ethnic enclaves, large chunks swallowed up by Israel and Turkey. The “rebels” (Wahhabi mercenaries) would like nothing better than to give Bashar al-Assad the Gaddafi treatment. 

Trump, like a puppet on a string, turned around and said he wouldn’t pull troops out of Syria. He misspoke or was misunderstood (a common occurrence with this president). 

Our “God-blessed” troops will remain, or at least some of them will never mind the government routinely lies and misleads about troops numbers occupying foreign lands. It also lies about how many innocents it has slaughtered. This is nothing new. The state has done as much at least since the Vietnam War. 

Jeffrey offered the stale neocon explanation why troops should remain, never mind the violation of national sovereignty and international law, let alone the completely avoidable death of hundreds of thousands of Syrians. 

Iran. 

“I don’t know of anybody in the US government at any level that does not think that Iran’s encroachment on the region, its hegemonic tendencies, its use of asymmetrical warfare throughout the region … is not at the very top of the threats to regional security,” he said. 

Jeffrey is a visiting fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), a member of the CIA External Advisory Board, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. This explains everything you need to know. 

WINEP is a spin-off the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the fiercely pro-Israel driver of US foreign policy in the Middle East. Like its predecessor, WINEP holds an inexplicable voodoo trance grip on Congress and relentlessly pushes the bomb Iran and destroy Syria mantra, two key objectives of the Zionists in Israel and the Israel-first neocons at home. A massive chorus of ideologically lobotomized Christian Zionists serves as cheerleaders. They foolishly believe all Jews will be Christianized after the Final Battle and Return of the Messiah, the Jew Jesus of Nazareth, who is detested by many Jews. 

Let’s face it. Trump is connected at the hip to Israel. His daughter has converted to Orthodox Judaism and her husband is a wealthy Jew who approves of Israel stealing Palestinian land, running off its residents with bullets and truncheons, and shooting Palestinians protesting their captivity in the Gaza open-air prison by shooting them dead or, when the media cringes, deciding it is more effective to hobble them for life by shooting them in the ankles.

President Clueless and Confused is yanked back and forth like the tide. One day he says the neocon wars in the Middle East are a waste of lives and money—and then the next day says he will respond to Iranians defending themselves with overwhelming military action. 

The neocons—following orders from Zionists in Israel and at home—are attempting to restart the “rebel” (cutthroat jihadist mercenary) effort to oust al-Assad and establish a Wahhabi caliphate taking orders from Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the US. So blinded by their absurd medieval religion, these criminal jihadi psychopaths are only dimly aware they are useful idiots. 

That plan—long ago put together by Zionists as part of the Greater Israel project—will not be allowed to fade into the fog of soon forgotten history. Trump vacillates too much for their liking. 

The next president may not be as reluctant and indecisive about killing people. Certainly not Hillary Clinton, who will soon enter the field of Democrat hopefuls. She has broad experience—and a psychopathic personality to go along with it. Clinton is, after all, not shy about condoning and facilitating murder. She chortled on national television about accomplishing the brutal and sadistic murder of Libya’s Gaddafi. 

If she runs and captures the nomination, supposedly Republican (before that Democrats, and before that, Trotskyites) neocons will march to the polls to pull the lever in the hope Israel’s wars will not end until the entire Arab, Persian, and Muslim Middle East is cowed, irreparably harmed, its infrastructure and mosques in ruins, and the people divided into mutually antagonistic balkanized vassal states.
