Reply to the NY Times article "American Jews Divided Over Strain in U.S.-Israel Relations"

Jeff Davis

 Baja California 
But everything ***IS*** Israel's fault. Seriously. I'm an American and a Jew and I wouldn't give a nickel in bag of sh*t for the geopolitical crime-in-progress that is Israel. And all those Jews worldwide who continue to support Israel, now that its criminality is clear for all to see, are complicit in those crimes. Crime has no right to exist. Criminals have no right to defend themselves.

Dream the impossible -- don't be so sure -- dream!

Donna Brazile, the butterfly ballot, and a lifeless Al Gore gave us Bush/Cheney, which gave us the Neocon subversion, wars-for-Israel and the looting of America, which gave us Obama/Clinton and wars-for-Israel part two, and more looting of America.  That's 16 years of the continuous rape of America on behalf of the 1% and the Zionists.  This might be seen as incompetence -- as in the Iraq war was caused by "faulty", ie incompetent, intelligence -- except that the 1% and the Zionists made out like the bandits they are.  That's not incompetence, that's something else.

If the inability to face up to or even comprehend the cause of their failure is any indication, then the Dem party could well be in terminal phase, circling the drain, headed for the ash bin of history.  They can't return to being a party of the little guy, because no one will believe them -- and besides, Trump has laid claim to that territory -- and because if they were genuine, they would lose their big-money donors.  The Dems have no place to go.  They have no constituency left, and no new constituency to replace the old.  Blacks, Hispanics, and other identity-politics constituencies want and need jobs like everyone else, and Trump, if he can deliver -- a serious if -- is their guy, even if they don't know it just yet.     

I expect Trump to reinvent American politics -- reinvented for the digital age, a centrist single-party system -- reinvent the Republican party as that centrist, populist, working man/woman's party, and rebuild America.  

I know, that's too much for any man, ... or is it?  We shall see.

It appears the CIA has declared war on Trump.  To the CIA spook army of the war-for-profit globalists, Trump's notion of peace/cooperation with Russia is anathema.  Russia, the new boogieman, same as the old boogieman, is their meal ticket.  Trump to them is an existential threat.  So war it is, battle looms.  

Will Trump wuss out?  I think not.  (I certainly hope not.  I await that battle with more delight than even for the spectacle of Nov 8th.  I'm all giddy with the audacious hope that the Trump presidency's entertainment value will never disappoint.)  

So, come Jan 20th, if true to his bad boy reputation, the Trumpinator will dish some back-atcha whoop-ass on those folks at Langley.  Per my favorite metaphor: throw a rope around the ankles of that anti-democratic enabler of the deep-state tyranny, and drag it behind a pick-up truck until it's nothing but a smear on the pavement.  

How to do this you might ask?  Trump will do it his way, that much is certain, and he'll keep his plan-of-attack secret until he's in the big chair.  That said, here's my suggestion (by the way, the Congress has provided the Trumpinator with ample ammunition to also put them in orange jump suits and off to oblivion at Guantanamo or other federal facility at an undisclosed location in the desert southwest.  But we'll have to wait on that episode of "The Trumpinator Eats Swamp Creatures for Breakfast".)

For a while now, I've been convinced that in order to get the DC criminal horde in a cooperative mood, Trump would have to make an example of someone -- the Chinese have a saying, "Kill the chicken to scare the monkey".  Thus I've been wondering: Who might be "the chicken"?  It appears the CIA will be one of "the chicken(s)".  Personally, I can't think of a better chicken.

Here's how it might go:  On day one he releases the entire 6,700 page CIA torture report, complete and un-redacted, with all the real names, all in the clear.  The horrifying truth of the torture report, exposed for all Americans to see, will flat out destroy the CIA. Knockout punch, down for the count, helpless.  Then Trump gathers Cheney, Yoo, Addington, and Bybee, and ships them, and Jose Rodriguez and all his torturers, to the Hague for trial.  Then Trump identifies and fires all those individuals who attempted to delegitimze his presidency by creating and leaking the bogus "Russia hacked the election" report.  The torture report alone will finish the CIA.  Stick a fork in that chicken, he's done.  Nothing left but the clean up.

The audacity of hope.  Dream the impossible(?) dream.  Trump makes America feel good again.

The Kikes have won, let them have the damn place.

Sykes-Picot is dead. George Bush strapped a bomb to it and blew it up.
What was once Iraq is no more. The Shia have the plum part, Baghdad and the lion’s share of oil. The Kurds have a part, with more than a bit of oil as well. But the Sunnis, once the masters but now stripped of power, have been reduced to refugees and confined to their “reservation” in the wastelands of Anbar or fighting a grueling/losing battle for control of Mosul.
Syria the same. The remnants of Saddam’s regime fled there after the US invasion. But the Neocons weren’t through with them. Meat puppet Bush and anti-Christ-wannabe Cheney handed off the Neocon/Oded Yinon project to spineless phony Obama and mad dog Hillary, who then proceeded to do to Syria what their predecessors had done to Iraq. So the remnants of Saddam’s regime came out of retirement, and now Syria is broken as well, with the Sunni tribal regions of the east — the Upper Euphrates valley — in possession of radical Sunni head-choppers.
All of Sunnistan, from the Saudi border with Anbar in the south to the Euphrates crossing at the Turkish border in the north is “in play”. The Sunnis will not abide Shia domination, from either Baghdad or Damascus. Absent a “political solution” there will be “forever war”.
The solution — a Trumpian solution in accord with a new Trump Doctrine of foreign policy — akin to Mr. Shamir’s projection, is offered here for your consideration: the voluntary relocation of all the Palestinians — all of them: those in Israel proper, the West bank, Gaza, and the diaspora — to the new Sunnistan now aborning in the Sunni tribal regions of what was once Iraq and Syria.
In contrast to “the nakba method” — the violent expulsion at bayonet point incentivized by massacre and threat of massacre — the “voluntary” method/Trump-the-builder method uses the carrot rather than the stick. Pony up the cash — the Brits who started this shit, the Saudis and Gulf Sheikdoms, and the f*cking Jews — and buy/build the Sunnis a whole shiny new country with all the bells and whistles. Here's a Trumpian real estate project if I ever saw one.  Talk about "qualified"!  Who could be more qualified than the world's preeminent deal-making real estate wizard himself?  Trump tower, Trump America, Trump Palestine,… (Trump World ... coming soon to a planet near you).  The Chinese could be contracted for the actual construction. Lots of upside for everyone.
The Israelis would certainly get behind such an effort. They would like nothing more than to get rid of their Arab trash. The Palestinians would certainly appreciate the idea of getting the f*cking Zionist jackboot off their throat.  Ditto the rest of the world. Make the offer to relocate generous enough and almost every Palestinian would accept. (A few stubborn souls would no doubt refuse, but few enough that it wouldn’t scotch the deal. Certainly less than the current 20% of Palestinian Israelis.)
The Kikes have won, let them have the damn place. See what happens to them when they don’t have anyone to blame for their bad behavior. My guess: they never learn -- they haven't learned in five-thousand years -- so they'll screw themselves yet again and that shitty little place will soon enough “pass into the pages of history”.

And FYI, I'm an American and a proud fucking Jew, deal with it.

re censorship at antiwar.com

Really, Thomas? Who is the drama queen here? You're embarrassing yourself with this name calling. My comment disappeared. What am I to think, you're on a coffee break? So I posted the link to my backup, my all-but-invisible, low-traffic,... make that no-traffic,... blog. The "rules" you cite give the Jews a free pass on their complicity in the Zionist project. It's ok to criticize Zionism or Israel, but not the Jews that make their crimes possible. That appears to be the rule, and it amounts to Antiwar.com caving to Jewish/Zionist intimidation. It may be discretion -- as in "discretion is the better part of valor" -- but absent the lethality of bullets-and-bombs-combat, it's cowardly. It was cowardly then, as it is cowardly now. That said, it ***IS*** Justin's website and he gets to decide on when "discretion" -- strategic restraint -- is called for. I've had this issue since before you were moderator. Someone Jewish among the staff at Antiwar.com -- kudos guys, on your good work -- considered my criticism so virulent that they saw in it an attempt to discredit them. On that occasion I figured out how to draw that individual out from behind his protective curtain of anonymity, and engage him in the light of day, challenging his claim and regaining my commenting privileges. To your credit, you are out in the open. Regarding your "hint". You control the content of Antiwar.com, I control the content of my almost-a-blog. You can censor me here; you cannot censor me there. From here on out I will append to all my comments a link to my blog, and after a while all who participate will come to associate jeff_davis with http://whimsicaldog.blogspot.mx/ . Then, hopefully, I will be able simply to post "Comment moderated, you know where to find it." jeff_davis: http://whimsicaldog.blogspot.mx/

And as always, for the record, I'm an American and a Jew.

Give it ***ALL*** to them

Sykes-Picot is dead. The question then, "When ISIS is gone, who will replace them to rule Sunnistan:  newly created from Anbar and the Upper Euphrates Valley (Iraq and Syria)?" I have a notion that the world will need a confab of all concerned parties to redraw the boundaries of the Mideast.
My own proposal for that confab, discussed nowhere before this comment, is the voluntary relocation of all Palestinians -- Israeli, WB & Gaza, and the Palestinian diaspora/refugee camps, to the newly formed Sunnistan. The Israelis would be all in with such a plan, and would throw the full weight of their international political influence behind it.

In contrast to the "Nakba method" -- brazen theft, and ethnic cleansing by massacre and threat of massacre -- this relocation would be based on making the Palestinians an offer too good to turn down. (No doubt some would stubbornly refuse to relocate, but they would be few, and thus acceptable to the Israelis . The incentives provided -- new cities, new homes, new businesses (to be built by experienced Chinese city builders, perhaps) -- would be designed to be ***irresistibly*** generous -- "lavish" even. Consequently, it would be, for the overwhelming majority of Palestinians, too good to turn down. Naturally, the current Sunni occupants of Anbar and the Upper Euphrates would be persuaded to accept the Palestinians by being rewarded with Sunni national sovereignty and a corresponding share of the largess.
The Saudis, the Brits, and the worldwide Jewish community -- in particular the US Jewish community -- would foot the bill.
A confab of all the interested parties would work out the details. There are many, but what is the alternative,... perpetual war?
There is no one- or two-state solution. That's always been bull. From the first, the Zionists were determined to take all of mandate Palestine, and is clear that they are as committed as ever to that end -- Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem, Gaza -- they will have all of it. And frankly, I don't see any force among the world's nations willing to try and stop them.
A final note: I struggle with the clear injustice of allowing the Zionist criminals to win, to legitimize and enjoy their criminal gains. But the ugly truth is that they ***have*** won -- for now at least -- and the only option remaining for some fragment of justice is to find a way to get the Zionist jackboot off the throat of the defeated Palestinians.

9/11: Saudis, Israelis, and Zionist captivity

http://news.antiwar.com/2016/11/30/sens-graham-mccain-unveil-plan-to-weaken-saudi-911-bill/

My reply to pensword re Saudi/Israeli involvement in 9/11:

I agree, both the Saudi and Israeli govts were involved: the Saudis in financing and the Israelis in "shepherding".
A separate, overarching, and much more difficult matter however, is the subversion of the US govt by the Israelis. The Neocons -- Israeli agents -- currently control the Executive(Trump may boot them, we shall see.), and AIPAC -- Israeli agents -- has for many years maintained ownership of the House and Senate.
Breaking out of Zionist "captivity" is a yuuuge challenge. Consider, its mention is taboo in the MSM media, dangerous in the alternate media, and a life destroying, career-killing offense in politics, media, academia, commerce,... hell, across the spectrum of civil and cultural participation.
The Jews have once again risen to prominence among the powers of the world, and loyalty to Israel is their poisoned chalice. But it is perilous to state as much. I can only do so because I'm an old, retired, pissy-ass, Jew-of-no-importance-whatsoever, living happily, and comfortably below my means, in Brigadoon.

Worse than a crime...

"...it's the neocons and their salaried brain dead puppets, all a pack of lying scumbags responsible for the deaths of millions." Love the fierce intensity of your language. If more people would call out these traitorous rat-b@stards -- The Neoconservatives: Agents of Zionism -- using language like yours, language proportionate to the supreme international criminality of these death-worshipping monsters, and naming them, and naming the Zionist evil that spawns their savage predations, maybe the world would at last rise up and hold them accountable and terminate their insane agenda -- Full Spectrum Dominance: the Wolfowitz Doctrine: the Zionist-owned US jackboot on the throat of every human being on the planet. [Too harsh? Too "anti-Semitic" -- bleeeeck! -- for Anti-War.com (the moderators et al)? How much truth is too much truth?] Full disclosure, as always: I'm an American and a Jew. But I will not condone the Zionist criminal project. Founded as it is on the destruction of Palestinian humanity, it is a geopolitical crime-in-progress, and cannot but end badly. Heed then, before it's too late, the old French political truism: "It was worse than a crime, it was a mistake."

The Cult of Zionism

Response to Mazzel Stof's comments to the article:
New CIA Chief Was Excited About Attacking Syria’s Assad
https://www.antiwar.com/blog/2016/11/18/new-cia-chief-was-excited-about-attacking-syrias-assad/
Your screen name "Mazzel Stof" is clearly a modification of "mazzeltof". Thus I conclude you are Jewish. Consequently, it is almost certain -- and your comments indicate as much -- that you are biased by the Zionist Kool-Aid.
There is no doubt that Syria is a majority Muslim country, and that Muslim values predominate. This, in much the same way that the US is a predominately Christian country where Christian values predominate. That's not in dispute. But just as the US governmental tradition maintains a separation of church and state -- a secularism at the government level -- Baathism does the same.
The dominant religious values of a nation inevitably "leak into" and influence the behaviors of government, composed as it is of humans who cannot but act in accord with those values when making decisions, including decisions of state, but that is quite different from the state being overtly theocratic in nature.
Your refusal to acknowledge these self-evident features of the Syrian state suggest that you are a Zionist seeking to demonize Syria as a Muslim enemy state.
A cultish tribal loyalty for Israel and Zionism have forced your thinking into the distortions of reality necessary to justify to yourself the ongoing crimes of Zionism. Consequently, the secular nature of the Syrian regime, a good thing, must be discredited in order to maintain the belligerent stance:
Syria=Muslim=evil=enemy.
Try this instead:
Israel=Zionist theocracy=geopolitical-crime-in-progress=enemy (of world peace).
Israel is a violent, criminal, anti-democratic, theocratic state ***POSING*** as a secular democracy.
The defects in your beliefs and ethics are almost incurable, as explained here:
"Why I left he cult" by Avigail Abarbanel 
http://mondoweiss.net/2016/10/...
I'm an American and a jew, but tribal loyalty cannot compel me to condone, much less support, Jewish/Zionist crimes.

A presidential pardon for Hillary?

An aspect not yet mentioned -- have any of you seen or heard a peep? -- Presidential pardon.
There must be whole bunches of folks thinking hard about this, but no one is talking. Please, start the conversation. I want to hear from youse guys, what do you think?
If Hillary loses, Obama pardons her in a heartbeat. If she wins, ditto (or not?), but with ***unprecedented*** political consequences, which would take the US political system into truly uncharted territory. And then... what about a pardon in the next few days, before the election? Boom! A frikkin' political nuke,.. in an electoral season where the spectacle leaps by the minute to a new, ever more spectacularly outrageous level.
So far, deafening silence. Mum's the word. How is that possible? I mean shouldn't the Trump side at least, be going to town, preemptively shouting their condemnation of the planned, expected, predictable, and thoroughly corrupt nature of a looming -- yeah, speculative and semi-fictional like the Russia/Wikileaks/Trump Manchurian candidacy, but so what? -- Presidential pardon?
Ford pardoned NIxon ***on the way out***, a totally different creature than a pardon for Hillary ***on the way in***.
I'm goin' a little crazy wondering, astonished, "How?,... Why?,... the silence?
Surely someone has said something and I've just missed it, right? Help me out here.

What the thunder said

The entire establishment is scared shitless of Trump. His bid for the presidency is nothing less than a revolution in American politics -- a challenge to their "ownership" of the country --

-- and they are going all out to prevent his election. This will no doubt have some limited success  Without question, it is the conventional, proven technique for manipulating public opinion. But the world is changing. The internet as an alternative source of info has broken the MSM monopoloy on "narrative" construction, so there is mounting cognitive dissonance created by the conflicting narratives. And that dissonance actually **forces** people to think, forces people to **learn to think**.
It has often been said, in frustration and disgust, that the American people are stupid. I understand the situation, but I just don't think it's as bad as one might think. People who are intentionally manipulated, misled, maleducated, and propagandized, may speak about the world, and do things at the voting booth, that seem "stupid" to you, particularly if your political views are not theirs. But when people have no real choice, any vote they cast will look stupid. So what's really going on -- in my view -- is not stupidity, but helplessness.
Not stupidity. And the Trump movement phenomenon demonstrates this. Millions of regular people from across the political spectrum have thrown in with Trump. They are smart enough to know that they have been getting screwed "by a system that threw them overboard thirty years ago", and now, long-frustrated, their instinctive intelligence sees and seizes the opportunity to actually vote in their own interest,... for the first time in my lifetime (67 years). For Trump the blue-collar billionaire. Despite all his wealth, Trump is one of them: a blunt-to-the-point-of-rudeness, NY working-class, horn-doggie alpha-male. A guy who hangs out with the elite-and-snobby, caters for a premium price to the elite-and-snobby, hits on the wives of the elite-and-snobby, but is still at heart a working-class bad boy in the mold of Tony Manero. Oh, how the elite-and-snobby hate him. Their hatred, and their snob-based cluelessness is what signals regular folks to stream to support him at his rallies -- the enemy of their enemy is their friend -- and what makes me think the American people are smarter than the elite-and-snobby think they are, and are secretly, quietly supporting Trump. Secretly and quietly so that they do not have to be annoyed by the flailing and spittle-flecked hysteria of politically correct sissies.
So for the next 26 days we will have more of the magnificent spectacle. But after the polls and pundits,...
After the torchlight red on sweaty faces
After the frosty silence in the gardens
After the agony in stony places
The shouting and the crying
Prison and palace and reverberation
Of thunder of spring over distant mountains

...
We will have the reality of Nov 8th.
Then we shall see.
Good luck.

Madame President

Gina my dear, I am thoroughly enjoying the spectacle of this political season. The last few days of Trump-trashing have made Trump supporters glum -- booey hooey! -- but for me that's just the back and forth of the political battle. Like watching a football game, sometimes your team is in the lead, sometimes behind. High drama, yum! And there's still 3+ weeks of drama left, and regardless of the outcome the entertainment value promises to be delightful. Yes, I have a pleasant emotional investment in the Trumpinator -- it's more fun that way -- but it's limited and I try to suppress it, because in the end it's just Kabuki, with no perceptable effect on me **personally**. I think of myself as a "Carlinite". Divorcing myself from "The Freak Show", my view aligns with George: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ERFBg2Uh1c Whatever genuine emotional engagement I have -- human weakness that it is -- stems from the circumstance George describes here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsL6mKxtOlQ Your "Madame President" -- enjoy it while you can -- is as phony as a three-dollar-bill. Her tell-them-what-they-want-to-hear "public positions" are thirty years of practiced insincerity, empty platitudes, and "panderisms". She, like WJC, Bush/Cheney, and Obama is the candidate of Carlin's "the owners". Her presidency will give us more of the same-old-same-old, which is to say nothing,... or less than nothing, which is to say more wars and chaos internationally and the continued looting of America. Trump, by contrast, is outside Carlin's cynicism box, a revolutionary, a radical change agent, who might or might not overthrow the established order. We really don't know, and that uncertainty is his greatest weakness. What will we get with a Trump presidency? It's all political talk -- when not drowned out by "Trump the Sexual Predator" sensationalism -- so nobody knows. And of course, the Clinton folks want to fill that vacuum of uncertainty with their defamation narrative -- fact-based and otherwise. Facts? Is anyone really interested in facts? Voters, maybe. Political assassins and commercial eyeball sellers?... not! I'm not complaining. That's the way the game is played. All's fair in love and war, and this is basically war sans bloodshed. Consequently, it will not be the "right" person or the "wrong" person who will win, but the better political "war fighter". Opinions and partisan cheer-leading abound, polls and pundits pontificate, but the noise aside, one thing and one thing alone matters, one thing alone is "real": Nov 8th. We shall see. Okay. Now I'm a Trump guy, howbeit a light-duty Trump guy, an entertainment-value-focused (mostly) Trump guy, a poke-my-finger-in-the-PC-sissies-eye kind of guy. But let me indulge you in your warm-and-fuzzy Hillary love. Let's look at an HRC presidency: Trump fades away, and the GOP is restored to its former leadership. Hillary's negatives remain, which enables the Repubs to sit on her like they sat on Obama. Full spectrum obstruction. She gets nothing done that doesn't serve the one-percent, which is no big deal ***for her*** and is, in fact, her plan: pander, promise, and then use GOP resistance as the excuse for not being able to deliver for her black and minority constituencies. Meanwhile the banks and insurance companies, the military contractors, the hedge fund people, the oil companies, the drug companies and multi-nationals, Saudis and Israelis -- all these folks -- will get everything that they want because the GOP will be happy to cooperate. Her Supreme Court nominees will be centrist: she'll claim, rightly, that she "had to compromise", but -- secretly -- she'll be fine with that, because she's one-hundred-percent establishment and hasn't a progressive bone in her body. Where things get interesting is in foreign policy. People are -- in my view rightly -- concerned that her hawkish attitude will lead the entire world to the brink of nuclear war. She seems committed to facing down a nuclear-armed Russia. And her aggressive posture is amplified by the war-pimping Neocon Kool-Aid that demonizes Russia/Putin as threatening and aggressive. This is old hat: the political utility of the boogeyman-du-jour, in this case a spiffed-up and recycled Commie boogeyman from the good old days of the cold war. I understand the fear, but I'm not as concerned as some folks. I think the fear is overblown, which is the way fear works, particularly in a political context. No, I'm a little worried, but not much, because I believe Putin is a cool-headed and brilliant strategic actor, against whom Hillary will be hopelessly out-matched. Putin will not let Hillary win, and he most certainly will not let her take us over the brink into nuclear war. He will be ready for her, and if she pushes the matter **up to the brink**, Putin will be prepared to defeat and humiliate her and forestall a full nuclear exchange. It is clear that in her arrogance -- and dare I say comprehensive record of strategic incompetence -- she is no match for Putin. After four years of failure and humiliation with Hillary, the country will once again be ready for a revolution, and she will be history. The first woman president, like the first black president, an utter failure. But who can say? I wish you luck. I'm an American and a Jew and I live deep in Mexico outside the nuclear blast zone, so come what may, I'll be just fine. You?

The US massacred: Native Americans, enslaved Africans, Filipinos, Vietnamese, Guatemalans, Nicaraguans, Salvadorans, US Confederate rebels, and many many others; beyond direct mass murder, the US abetted oppression, coups de etat, slaughter, and torture in countries across the planet:  Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, Angola, South Africa, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, now Syria, Palestine of course, Egypt, now Yemen, Panama, Grenada, and others, many many others.

This BS about Assad being a bad guy is total Kool-Aid.  When the Confederate South revolted against the North a slaughter ensued.  Surprise! surprise! Revolt leads to civil war which, being war, involves "massacres".  That's what war is, one giant massacre fest.  When Sunnis revolt in Syria, they are slaughtered until they get the message, which is: if you take up arms against the govt you will be slaughtered without mercy.  This is reality.  This is the real world.  The idea that when "we" slaughter it it a humanitarian act, and when "they" slaughter back its terrorism or "genocide", is the criminal insanity of tribal "exceptionalism".

Hafez al Assad -- father of today's Bashar -- put down the Hama rebellion of 1982 by surrounding the rebel area and  subjecting it to a relentless artillery bombardment until 20,000 were dead and the rebels -- Muslim Brotherhood Islamists -- surrendered.  Thirty-five years later, the Neocon-subverted US, acting as Israel's proxy, has fomented a war of aggression against Syria, and pawned it off as a "legitimate" civil war.  In their arrogance, HRC and her Neocon accomplices in the State Dept thought they could duplicate their "success" in Libya and send Assad packing.  But they were wrong, and now instead of a few thousand dead rebels and peace restored, we are approaching half-a-million dead, millions fleeing for their lives, and confrontation with a Radical Islamic Terrorist cancer, funded, armed, and unleashed by Obama/Clinton to rampage across the planet.

And if that isn't bad enough, we're about to suffer the election of HRC to the Presidency of the World's-Greatest-Death-Machine.  Meet Hillary Rodham Clinton, the enthusiastic "point-person and executor" of Mideast horrors, she who destroys entire countries, who believes she can repeat in Syria her "no-fly-zone success" from Libya, who arms terrorist monsters, who is so arrogant that she thinks she can face down nuclear-armed Russia, and a person of such frustrated ambition and depravity that she chortled in delight at the sodomized-to-death-by-bayonet of the legitimate head of state of Libya, a country she transformed from a stable and prosperous nation -- 2nd highest standard of living in Africa -- to a death zone of savagery and barbarism.  Thus did Hillary Rodham Clinton bestow upon the Libyan people the great American blessing of "freedom and democracy"!

War is a business horrific beyond words.  Under HRC, somewhere on the planet someone is likely to "feel the burn", the nuclear burn that is, pray that it isn't someone you care about.

Putin's "cancer cure"?


I keep mulling over the likely course of the US/Russia confrontation we will see if HRC is elected. She will try to face down Putin, to no avail. Putin is a cool-headed and very capable strategic thinker and will have gamed-out the various scenarios. He will do what he has to do to prevent the situation getting out of hand. With that as a premise, I ask myself "How will he do that? What plan of action by Putin will prevent (or more crucially, halt) an out-of-control escalation?"


First and foremost of course is to put the entire Russian nation in a state of readiness. Civil defense for the civilian population, and defensive deployment and a highest state of readiness among both the conventional military and the strategic nuclear forces. That's just the bedrock of strategic deterrence: eliminate the element of surprise and with it any hope of first-strike effectiveness.


But let's say HRC gets militant and arrogant, and persuades herself -- all those marvelous weapons and enthusiastic generals -- that Putin will inevitably have to back down, and having thus persuaded herself, decides she can get away with attacking Russian forces in Syria. How will Putin be ready for that? What can he do?


I don't much like indulging in this sort of speculation, because there are so many known unknowns that I can't avoid feeling that I'm talking out my ass, and also because it appeals to my inner GI Joe.


That said, I stumbled upon a strategy that seemed to have a very compelling logic, so allow me to share it with you.


There are a number of relatively safe and semi-conventional -- destructive and disabling but "non-lethal" -- preventive attacks short of all out war: attacks that do not involve human casualties -- electronic warfare, cyber warfare, destruction of the US satellite fleet, and a limited EMP attack to degrade/disable certain assets while simultaneously send a message.


Not very interesting.


But if Putin's Russia and HRC's Pentagon death machine are nose-to-nose, sphincters rigid, ready (various insane generals more or less enthusiastic) to destroy the world, what could stop that in its tracks?


The Russians are very discreet when it comes to issuing "threats". They seem to favor a very light -- dare I say "diplomatic" -- touch, issuing an almost neutral assertion, but one that carries with it a cautionary element. Two have been issued recently: a little-noticed announcement that Russia plans a test of an airborne ***anti-satellite*** laser, and a comment from Maria Zakharova, Russia's Foreign Affairs spokesperson, that a US attack on Syrian/ Russian forces would have "tectonic consequences" in the Mideast.


Focusing on the latter comment: what might these "tectonic consequences" entail? If the US and Russia are nose-to-nose, US psychopaths -- HRC/Neocons/Pentagon -- unwilling to back down, locked on a course to blow up the world, notwithstanding the threat of mutual annihilation, what could stop that seemingly unstoppable march to war?


Call me crazy, but if at that point Putin de-fangs or annihilates Israel with a brace of nuclear weapons, any confrontation between the US and Russia would come to a screeching halt. 

While the US would most assuredly retaliate for a nuclear attack on the US, the end of the world notwithstanding, they would not commit suicide in response to an attack on Israel. And since all the problems in the Mideast, as well as the rising antagonism toward Russia, originate with Israel through the Neocon/AIPAC domination of US foreign policy -- Oded Yinon plan and the Wolfowitz Doctrine -- the destruction of Israel would -- in a stroke -- moot virtually the entire US foreign policy.


The destruction of Israel would not only eliminate the cancer at the heart of the "Clash of Civilizations", but knock everyone back on their heels with an apocalypse-lite demonstration of what a full-on apocalypse would look like. Plus, the non-Jewish world would secretly be delighted to see the Zionists gone.

Nasty?  Absolutely.  But nowhere near as nasty as a full-on nuclear exchange.

Okay, your turn.

    The Zionist cesspool: Syria today, America tomorrow


    Response to some damn-fool-with-a-penis who calls himself "The Eagle".  I don't remember where.

    Flag-draped, Kool-Aid saturated patriot zombie spouting pure unadulterated "rah rah USA" propaganda, with a pinch of ye olde anti-Communism thrown in.  Not one original thought, not a single thought of your own.  A tribal robot.

    On behalf of Israel, the subverted US Govt, using State, the DOD, and the CIA, created the war in Syria.  You got that, douchebag?  The war in Syria is an illegal war of aggression, using proxy terrorist mercenaries -- al Qaeda and ISIS -- to overthrow the legitimate govt of Syria.  Every single death resulting from that war, every single refugee fleeing for their lives from the US created horror, every single one, is a criminal act for which Bush/Cheney/Obama/Clinton -- following the Neocon program -- are culpable.

    Syria/Assad are fighting a totally legitimate defensive war against the criminal monsters sicced on them by the US/UK, their degenerate Sunni Gulf allies, and Erdogan's Turkey,... with Israel -- Oded Yinon plan -- behind it all.  

    And regarding all those "innocent" civilians.... They are Sunni tribalists in revolt.  They don't do democracy,  they don't do freedom, they don't do justice.  They do tribal tyranny.  And if they "won" the war they would be ten times as brutal and tyrannical as Assad.  They support the Sunni jihadists monsters fighting Assad's stabilizing leadership, and the reasonable and logical thing to do to such traitors and their terrorist buddies is to bomb them all.  Bomb them and bomb them and bomb them,... until they either surrender or die.  It's called war, and it's a nasty business, and if they can't handle it, they shouldn't have started it.  

    Now that they have started it, they discover that all their people -- their families and friends, women and children, old and young, doctors, nurses, poets, and clergy -- end up being slaughtered by the neighborhood-full.  Surprise!, surprise!  It's called "war".  

    There are lessons to be learned here: "Jihad" is a lot more "glorious" when it's going your way, when you're dishing rather than suffering the head-chopping.  And perhaps the most important lesson: you screwed up big time when you trusted the CIA-sponsored NGOs that encouraged you to revolt in the first place.  As to your current predicament, here's the answer: flee the death zone and surrender to the legitimate govt forces.  That's the way to keep you and your family from being blown to bits.  Otherwise, it's stay put and die.  You make the call.  

    Death and destruction is the inevitable fate of those who throw in with the Zionist-subverted US, the fully-owned subsidiary of the Zionist crime-in-progress that is Israel.

    Your country Mr. Eagle is being violated by the Zionists, and all you can say is "Putin did it!", and beg for more.  Your mindless stupidity and easy manipulation are the reasons your beloved country is being sucked dry.   America is being flushed down the Zionist toilet, and you are the reason why.   I hope you are young enough to enjoy a long life living neck-deep in a Zionist cesspool.

    The US makes a "mistake"


    War is a nasty business.  Quaint notions to the contrary, there are no rules save one: win.  The Aleppo rebels and their supporters could have peace, safety, and full bellies on the instant: just walk away.  Wave a white handkerchief and surrender.  It's as simple as that.  Otherwise stay there and die.

    The "rebels" were stupid to let the US (acting as Israel's stooge) dupe them into helping in a failed criminal regime change enterprise.  They trusted the US (!!!!!!), and now they're screwed(surprise! surprise!): ruled by fundamentalist Islamic head-choppers, bombed and starved by the government they and their Saudi and Turkish "friends" tried to destroy.  (This is your brain on fundamentalist Islam -- or fundamentalist anything, for that matter.)

    For five years Deir ez-Zor remained under Syrian government control and the Jebel Tharda hill-top military position provided protection for  the area.  Five years they were there, and the US, which for five years has wanted to destroy Assad and his govt, would have us believe they forgot, or didn't notice, or... something,... "Sorry, the airstrike was a mistake."

    Here's my take:  "Let's bomb the Jebel Tharda position and let ISIS take Deir ez-Zor.  That will, in a stroke, clear Assad's forces from all of Eastern Syria (so we can take possession after ISIS has been disposed of), and send a message to Assad that he needs to wise up.  He's certainly not going to attack us  -- we wish -- because then we would have the excuse we have wanted for so long to bomb his army to dust.  It's a total win win.  Let's go for it.  Then of course we'll pour a little salt in the wound by saying 'Whoops!  We made a mistake. Sorry about that.'  (He he, wink wink.)"

    It appears that Assad's response has been to send a message of his own: "You're right, we don't dare bomb American forces.   But the Russians will help us reinforce Deir ez-Zor, retake Jebel Tharda, and win the war by bombing the living crap out of all your terrorist proxies in Idlib province,.... and retaking Aleppo.  Suck on that!  And you thought you would screw us with your phony-ass "cease fire" scam.  Riiiiiight!"

    Whistling past the graveyard


    In the Zionist-controlled Economist, responding to the article "Pepe and the Stormtroopers", hasbaroid zombie daydreambeviva, daydreams his Zionist exceptionalist mythology, whistling past the graveyard:
    "Israel chooses not to be destroyed."
    To which I respond:
    Like a person with cancer chooses not to die.
    The internet freed up the truth about Jewish/Zionist supremacism. The geopolitical crime-in-progress that is "Israel": the theft of Palestine, genocidal war against the Palestinians in particular, the Arabs in general, and the Muslim world broadly (actually the entire Goyische world) is now revealed from behind the curtain of the Jewish-controlled MSM Zionist mythology. The truth of Zionist savagery now stands revealed to the world.
    Enjoy your moment in the sun. The rest of the world sees your criminal acts and recognizes the unrestrained nature of Zionist aggressiveness. For Five thousand years the Jewish nature has remained the same: un-self-aware, unapologetic, "exceptionalist" (the "Chosen People" bs) predation. And for five thousand years Jewish overreach has had the same predictable result: it's called "blowback".
    Nothing has changed. The Jews still haven't learned. The Zionists today in "Israel" are once again diligently building the next Jewish holocaust. They think their nukes will protect them. My God! what delusion!
    I'm an American and a Jew, and I support the "retirement", by whatever means necessary, of Israeli sovereignty. Payback is coming, and as always payback is a bitch.

    The Celebrity Death Match of the Millennium!


    The Saudis -- ***NOT IRAN*** -- are the world's leading state sponsors of terrorism and facilitated the 911 attacks. The Saudi oligarchs fund the Wahhabi clerics who run the madrasas across the Muslim world that train the extremist jihadi fighters that spread radical Islamic terror worldwide. The 911 attack was an act of war -- the "Pearl Harbor" -- used cynically by the Neocons as an excuse to destroy Iraq, while the real culprits, the Saudis, were given a pass, the "28 pages", "the smoking gun", held back. And let's not forget the near certainty that the Israelis had foreknowledge of the coming attack and held back that vital information from their American "ally". The Zionist subversion of the US Govt by the Neocons and AIPAC -- Israeli agents -- places beyond the realm of imagining even the mere suggestion of a casus belli case against Israel, no matter the facts: "Treason doth never prosper, what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason." John Harington The Saudis, by virtue of big oil money and billions in MIC purchases, have also enjoyed a protected status, (though not nearly the total immunity enjoyed by Israel -- the "special relationship"). That said, in light of Saudi complicity in 911 revealed the 28 pages, and their central role in spreading Wahhabi terrorism, the American people would have no problem whatsoever supporting a war to terminate the degenerate Saudi regime and the cancer they spread worldwide. The Trump movement has broken the "rationality logjam" created by the PC/Zionist "narrative", and the emerging truth is making reality-based policy -- ie ***rational policy***, which is to say ***effective*** policy -- accessible. "Take the oil" says Trump, and the PC police scream "Outrageous!" Really now? Deprive radical Islamic terrorism, the enemy of modern civilization, the resources, the economic fuel for their savage worldwide onslaught? This is "outrageous"? No, this is the emergence, finally, of rational thought from the delusional fog of Kool-Aid saturation. Disorienting and refreshing is the light of truth,... at last. And all that formerly-Saudi oil wealth confiscate it. Confiscate as well, from their accounts, all the preciously accumulated Saudi wealth: as penalty for terror sponsorship. Cancel/retire that 750 billion in Saudi-held US treasuries. Just cancel it! Then, take all those trillions and create a new home for the Palestinians, modernize the Arab world, and bring prosperity to Arab "Main Street". Maybe, just maybe, that might bring peace to the Mideast, ya think? Thank you, presumptive President-elect Donald Trump, for all this. For innovation in the political system. For the inspiration, the optimism, and the return to rational self-interest. For restoring representation to the American people, for putting Americans first, and for restoring America to reality-based thinking and the rational policies it enables. Thank you for putting our neoliberal-and-Neocon beleaguered country back on the path to greatness. (Please God, let Hillary live long enough to participate in the debates. It would be deplorable if the reality tv celebrity-death-match-of-the-millennium -- The Trumpinator vs Godzillary the Destroyer -- were cancelled due to Hag-O-War enfeeblement.)

    The Trump Era begins


    From the Washington Post
    Morell and Vickers: An open letter to Donald Trump

    These intelligence community flacks are professional liars from the Professional Liars Institute(the CIA). Believing them is an act of infantile gullibility, and in this case gullibility abetted by a longing for the old days of the anti-commie hate fest addiction. These spook boosters want the gravy train of perpetual war to continue. Trump sees endless war as both dangerous and wasteful, and an artificially pumped up antagonism with Russia and China as unnecessary, stupid, dangerous, and wasteful and will seek to put an end to it. The spooky boys feel threatened. A dearth of credible boogiemen means unemployment and loss of prestige for death-worshippers of every stripe. So naturally they are applying their "trade-craft" of mind-rape to forestall the looming threat of peace.  

    Yet there is hope -- the success of the Trump "movement" in spite of comprehensive MSM opposition is suggestive -- that the American people see through the establishment anti-Trump crusade. In fact, it may actually be the case that every time Trump is slammed by the ruling class hacks, the regular folks take it as a sign that Trump is their guy. The American people are smarter than they look -- they just never had a ***SMART*** choice before -- as the smug ruling-class elites will soon discover.  

    I prefer Trump the Builder to Hillary the Destroyer. 

    And so, the Trump era begins. Ivanka Trump will be elected the first woman president in 2024. The Trump team will indeed make America great again,... because Trump delivers. (And you thought it was just a slogan!) 

    The Great Oblunder


    The article in Antiwar.com was entitled


    We shall see what we shall see.

    I can only hope that this action by Obama will the blunder that stains his legacy forever. Call it the "Oblunder".   Surely the Republican-dominated Congress will override this veto. The long-concealed 28 Pages now revealed, show that the world's leading State sponsor of terrorism is in fact Saudi Arabia not Iran. This clear fact, suppressed for over a decade, now reveals the corruption of the American government and the capture of The American Nation by the ruling class, a variety of special interests and corrupted American institutions.

    The truth of the Saudi origins of both the 9/11 attacks and worldwide terrorism stand now in clear view of the American people.   Obama must be insane to imagine that this will be approved by the American people. My guess is, that this is a signal to the establishment that Obama is one of them, and he's angling for his cushy post-presidential position as an elder Statesman.   Personally, I hope he is rewarded for his failed presidency -- for his failure to remove the Bush/Cheny neoconservative appointees from their positions in the foreign policy establishment, and for his appointment of the monster Hillary Clinton as his  Secretary of State -- with the eternal scorn of History.

    Can Israel now be sued for its "terrorist" attack on the USS Liberty?


    The following is a comment posted to the article

    House Unanimously Passes Saudi 9/11 Lawsuit Bill

    I was responding to another comment cascade which went:

    Ricardo CabezaUSS Liberty survivors and families can finally sue Israel! 

    to which masmanz replied: 

    masmanzThey were attacked by Israeli military not by terrorists. It is terrorism only if done by non-state actors. This bill will not allow harmed Iraqis to sue the US government.

    Whereupon I commented:

    I doubt this "technicality" will matter. What will matter is whether or not Americans were killed. That will be enough for the legal process to be initiated. After that the usual political "thumb on the scales" will doubtless be applied. What favors the case against Israel for the USS Liberty attack is the "special status" -- the "patriotism amplification factor" if you will -- afforded murdered American military personnel. Also, with the internet providing access to the nasty truth about Israeli behavior past and present, shredding the Zionist-controlled MSM pro-Zionist narrative, the perception of Israeli behavior has become substantially more negative, which is to say more consistent with the truth.

    Working against the case of course -- and it's a "yuuuuge" negative -- is the pervasive Zionist influence -- dare I say "control" -- in both the DoJ and the judiciary. Jewish judges, Jewish prosecuters, Jewish Congresspeople, Jewish campaign contributors, etc have pervasive influence in any Israel-related matter.
    Taking into account these various factors -- including the Lavon affair, the dancing Israelis of 911, the pre-911 Israeli "art student" espionage -- a terrorism case against Israel for the USS Liberty attack could be a very spicy affair.
