a video blogger describes things you may want to know about in about eight minutes;
a friend just alerted me to the author of this article, and i believe i'll be visiting her url frequently. i like her low level sarcasm in describing the empire's actions for one thing;

In a recent meeting with the press, British ambassador to the United Nations Karen Pierce told reporters that it is absolutely unthinkable that the terrorist factions in the terrorist-held Syrian province of Idlib could possibly be planning a terrorist attack using chemical weapons with the intention of blaming it on the Syrian government.
Her reasoning? Since the Russian government has been warning of this possibility, the exact opposite must necessarily therefore be true.
Yes, really.
“There are many terrorist organizations in Idlib,” a reporter asked as a follow-up to previous questions regarding Russia’s allegations that terrorist factions had received a large batch of chemical weapons which they intend to use in a false flag attack. “Why do you rule out that they would perpetrate such an attack?”
“Because this story is coming from the Russians,” Pierce responded, with a straight face, and without honking a novelty-sized bicycle horn and saying “Wocka wocka!”
“It is much more likely for this to be a smoke screen for things that the Syrian authorities are planning to do,” Pierce continued. “The way to deal with any terrorists who are in Idlib is to ask the UN to negotiate safe passage, such as has been done before.”
saw this and smiled in a sardonic manner after which i immediately pasted it here for you to have the same opportunity;

everything i have encountered on this subject tells me the separating kids thing has been going on for some time;

i've seen this in several locations and smiled each time;

 this article has some questions you may wish to find an answer for, but probably won't have the ability to do so for;

News reports from journalists embedded with American troops serving in Syria and Iraq are enlightening. They tell a daily story of operations, life behind the lines and the real story of America’s controversial mission that many believe is not only illegal and fully in support of organizations the US government has branded as “terrorist.”
There is a problem. There are no reports. There are no embedded journalists. There are, in fact, no reports of any kind, not from war correspondents, not from troops who have returned home or left the military entirely, not from anyone. In fact, access to US controlled regions in Iraq and Syria is totally restricted and all information on activities there not just classified but beyond the purview of even members of Congress.
No one knows what America’s mission is. Photos used in the media are often archival and years old.
More frightening still, the only reports about journalism inside Syria are of kidnapped and killed journalists, reports covering areas allegedly under US control, reports accusing the Damascus government of widespread censorship and press restrictions in regions where such actions are obviously impossible.
It gets worse. There are, in fact, no journalists serving in the American enclave in Southern Syria at al Tanf, an area the Damascus coalition and Russian claim is simply a protected zone for ISIS operations.
In Northern Syria, north and east of the Euphrates river where the US claims to control, with its Kurdish allies, up to 30% of Syria, no American, British or French news service operates at all, not with US military organizations nor at any of the US bases which include air fields, training operations and newly constructed AEGIS type radar stations. These radar stations are suspected as an attempt by the US to institute a “no fly zone” over Syria such as was advocated by the Atlantic Council in January 2014.
Then again, nobody asks. No one seems to have noticed that there are no reports, no combat footage, no videos posted, absolutely nothing from US operations in Syria and Iraq. In fact, there is nothing from Afghanistan either, nor is there coverage of new US bases in Niger, Chad and South Sudan or of activities there as well.
By the time Vietnam came along, the history of American combat journalists was over. Those who “made their bones” in Vietnam did so from outside the country, too often, or from briefings at headquarters in DaNang of Saigon.
 everyone i know who has a brain is fully aware that the 'official' 911 story is a fictional as is the 'official' story of the murder of jfk. this writer pursues some parts of that official crap herein;

Mister President,
The crimes of 11 September 2001 have never been judged in your country. I am writing to you as a French citizen, the first person to denounce the inconsistencies of the official version and to open the world to the debate and the search for the real perpetrators.
In a criminal court, as the jury, we have to determine whether the suspect presented to us is guilty or not, and eventually, to decide what punishment he should receive. When we suffered the events of 9/11, the Bush Junior administration told us that the guilty party was Al-Qaïda, and the punishment they should receive was the overthrow of those who had helped them – the Afghan Taliban, then the Iraqi régime of Saddam Hussein.
However, there is a weight of evidence which attests to the impossibility of this thesis. If we were members of a jury, we would have to declare objectively that the Taliban and the régime of Saddam Hussein were innocent of this crime. Of course, this alone would not enable us to name the real culprits, and we would thus be frustrated. But we could not conceive of condemning parties innocent of such a crime simply because we have not known how, or not been able, to find the guilty parties.
We all understood that certain senior personalities were lying when the Secretary of State for Justice and Director of the FBI, Robert Mueller, revealed the names of the 19 presumed hijackers, because we already had in front of us the lists disclosed by the airline companies of all of the passengers embarked – lists on which none of the suspects were mentioned.
 something for you catholics here from pat buchanan and it makes several good points;

This summer, the sex scandal that has bedeviled the Catholic Church went critical.
First came the stunning revelation that Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, former Archbishop of Washington and friend to presidents, had for decades been a predator-priest who preyed on seminarians and abused altar boys, and whose depravity was widely known and covered up.
Came then the report of a Pennsylvania grand jury that investigated six dioceses and found that some 300 priests had abused 1,000 children over the last 70 years.
The bishop of Pittsburgh, Donald Wuerl, now Cardinal Archbishop of Washington, defrocked some of these corrupt priests, but reassigned others to new parishes where new outrages were committed.
This weekend brought the most stunning accusation.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, Vatican envoy to the United States under Pope Benedict XVI, charged that Pope Francis had been told of McCarrick’s abuses, done nothing to sanction him, and that, as “zero tolerance” of sexual abuse is Francis’ own policy, the pope should resign.
In his 11-page letter of accusations, Vigano further charged that there is a powerful “homosexual current” among the Vatican prelates closest to the pope.
What did the pope know and when did he know it?
 a good question with an equally good answer i believe;

After decades of warfare, the federal drug war has become a predictable cycle.
Drug dealer, drug gang, or drug user busted. DEA agents celebrate the bust. Newspaper reporters laud the DEA. Defendants prosecuted, convicted, and sent to jail.
And then?
Then, the cycle repeats itself. Drug dealer, drug gang, or drug user busted. DEA agents celebrate the bust. Newspaper reporters laud the DEA. Defendants prosecuted, convicted, and sent to jail.
And again and again and again. Month after month. Year after year.  Decade after decade. The cycle never stops.
Normally when one wages a war, he strives for victory. But no one ever defines what victory in the drug war would look like. The feds seem satisfied to simply engage in the same cycle, over and over again, into perpetuity.
Some proponents of the drug war say that if only the federal government really cracked down in the war on drugs, the war could be won. But what they fail to recognize is that over the years, the federal government really has cracked down.
The feds adopted mandatory-minimum sentences, which took sentencing discretion out of the hands of federal judges and imposed draconian sentences for drug-law violations.
They enacted asset-forfeiture laws, which enable the DEA to seize people’s money without charging them with any offense.
 the author of this, reputed to be former cia, has an interesting take on some of the 'russians did it' crap and where that might lead;

A quite astonishing article recently appeared in the New York Times, astonishing even by the standards of that newspaper, which featured Judith Miller and Michael Gordon in the Pentagon-sponsored lie machine that led up to the catastrophic war against Iraq.
The article, entitled “Kremlin Sources Go Quiet, Leaving CIA in the Dark about Putin’s Plans for Midterms,” claims that the United States has had a number of spies close to the Russian president “who have provided crucial details” that have now stopped reporting at a critical time with midterm elections coming up. The reporting is sourced to “…American officials familiar with the intelligence” who “…spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to reveal classified information.”
After reading the piece, my first reaction was that Judith Miller was back but the byline clearly read Julian E. Barnes and Matthew RosenbergNoms de plume, perhaps? The article is so astonishingly bad on so many levels that it could have been featured in Marvel Comics instead of the Gray Lady. First of all, if American intelligence truly has in the Kremlin high level human agents, referred to as humint, it would not be publicizing the fact for fear that Moscow would intensify its search for the traitors and discover who they were. No intelligence officer speaking either openly or anonymously would make that kind of fatal mistake by leaking such information to a journalist.

i paste here in its entirety an email from a friend received this am. i think what he sent is worthy of your attention and says it all better than i believe i could, so here it is;

Ron Unz (jew) just authored a blockbuster (almost book-length) article laying out the sordid development of the "holocaust" hoax and the revisionism exposing the grand deception.     Here's a little taste:

"Both of these simple facts have been widely accepted in America throughout my entire lifetime. But combine them together with the relatively tiny size of worldwide Jewry, around 16 million prior to World War II, and the inescapable conclusion is that in per capita terms Jews were the greatest mass-murderers of the twentieth century, holding that unfortunate distinction by an enormous margin and with no other nationality coming even remotely close. And yet, by the astonishing alchemy of Hollywood, the greatest killers of the last one hundred years have somehow been transmuted into being seen as the greatest victims, a transformation so seemingly implausible that future generations will surely be left gasping in awe. 

Though he does a bit of weasel wording and peppers the text with the usual disclaimers and qualifiers of being only an amateur and not an expert, the below leaves little doubt as to his conclusion.

"However, as an outsider exploring this contentious topic I think it far more likely than not that the standard Holocaust narrative is at least substantially false, and quite possibly, almost entirely so. "

The cat's getting out of the bag and one can only hope that this will help further open the floodgates of truth.  

Ron Unz will soon be demonized as an anti-semitic, neo-nazi, self-hating jew.  God bless him.
this is a curious video revealing things i hadn't been aware of. it does show more evidence of the crimes of the bush dynasty. its about twenty eight minutes long and worth watching;
his death creating antics on the enterprise are enough to support this graphic without even beginning to consider all of his other criminal actions;
i believe this sums it up fine;

works fine in my mind;

the empire is an aging bully who doesn't realize its past its prime as it continues its attempts to rule the world, and its citizens continue to buy the crap sold by 'our free press' to their detriment.

Hysteria reigned supreme after the first round of US sanctions were reinstated against Iran over the past week. War scenarios abound, and yet the key aspect of the economic war unleashed by the Trump administration has been overlooked: Iran is a major piece in a much larger chessboard.
The US sanctions offensive, launched after Washington’s unilateral pullout from the Iran nuclear deal, should be interpreted as an advance gambit in the New Great Game at whose center lies China’s New Silk Road – arguably the most important infrastructure project of the 21st century — and overall Eurasia integration.
The Trump administration’s maneuvers are a testament to how China’s New Silk Road, or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), threaten the US establishment.
Eurasian integration on the rise
Eurasian integration is on display in Astana, where Russia, Iran and Turkey are deciding the fate of Syria, in coordination with Damascus.
Iran’s strategic depth in post-war Syria simply won’t vanish. The challenge of Syrian reconstruction will be met largely by Bashar al-Assad’s allies: China, Russia and Iran.
Echoing the Ancient Silk Road, Syria will be configured as an important BRI node, key to Eurasia integration.
In parallel, the Russia-China strategic partnership – from the intersection between the BRI and the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU) to the expansion of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the solidifying of BRICS Plus — has immense economic stakes in the stability of Iran.
The complex interconnection of Iran with both Russia (via the EAEU and the International North-South Transportation Corridor) and China (via BRI and oil/gas supplies) is even tighter than in the case of Syria in the past seven years of civil war.
 the empire is a dying dog but it will bite anything it can on its way out. perhaps soon we will be seeing the biblical armageddon being fought which is also predicted in different words by other sages throughout the ages, nostradamus being the most notable;

It would seem that the proxy war that Washington has been waging on Syria has been nothing but a terrible, humiliating mess, but instead of calling it quits the White House is busy shifting gears again. While demonstrating its intention to strengthen its military presence in Syria, while still providing assistance to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party or PKK that is outlawed in Turkey, the US is now embarking on the mission of creating no-fly zones, the goal it has been after all along.
To achieve this goal, the Pentagon has deployed its radar systems in a number of cities in northern Syria, that are supposedly going to be used to monitor the operations carried out by the Turkish military. It seems that the relations between Ankara and Washington has hit an all time low if it comes down to the latter keeping a watchful eye of the former. It’s obviously not a coincidence that the safety umbrella that US policymakers are trying to pop open over the northern Syria is going to cover massive detachments of radical militants that have been rallying in Idlib from all parts of Syria, and now we see the reasoning behind this trend. It’s clear that Washington didn’t want to waste those valuable psychopaths that received an extensive amount of military training, since it hasn’t lost hope that it could still take down Damascus if the no-fly zones plan comes into fruition.
There has already been three full radars installations deployed in the areas of Kobani and Sarrin in the north of the Aleppo Governorate along with a total of 13 mobile radar systems that are going to be used for the monitoring of the Syrian sky. The rapid creation of no-fly zones in Syria has marked a new phase of Western military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic. This scenario has already been tested by Washington in Iraq and Libya, that is why American think tanks have been pushing for this option in Syria for almost a decade now.
Once a no-fly zone in Syria is declared, this step can followed by high precision weapons being used by the US-led coalition to destroy Syrian airfields, leaving Syrian armed forces without close air support. Should this plan come to fruition, any plane entering the no-fly zone will be detected and destroyed. Back in 2011, Washington was following the same exact path in Libya, first rendering Libyan airfield useless, before destroying radar installations and launch pads that could still prevent strikes on Libyan military facilities.
However, one must not forget that, according to the UN Charter, the authority to maintain international peace and security rests upon the shoulders of the UN Security Council. Both Washington, and its obedient vassals like the Great Britain have no privilege to do whatever they want if the rights of yet another international player is violated by their actions. It is the Security Council that determines the course of action whenever any threat to the international peace and security surfaces on the horizon. In a desperate attempt to force the UN Security Council into introducing a no-fly zone over northern Syria, the United States and its allies have been staging a new chemical provocation, for this time in Idlib, in a desperate attempt to push the blame on Damascus yet again.
pcr here in this piece describes why the empire is a potemkin village. he also tells us why we will fall and perhaps soon;

A Book For Our Time, A Time That Perhaps Has Run Its Course
Paul Craig Roberts
American post-WW 2 supremacy, writes Andrei Martyanov in his book, Losing Military Supremacy just published by Clarity Press, has been destroyed by America’s narcissism.
The arrogant hubris of American exceptionalism and the myths that sustain it are subjected to devastating analysis in this long overdue book. Martyanov has no patience with American strategic thinkers, Russian experts, American war myths, and General George S. Patton. No nation has ever assembled a greater collection of ignorant fools than the US and trusted them with the leadership of the country.
The consequence for America of the unreal image of itself in which the ruling elites live is a “very dangerous decline of American cognitive faculties” and “a complete loss of sound reasoning across the whole spectrum of national activities from foreign policy, to economics, to war, to culture.” The hegemony claimed and pursued by neoconservatives, liberal interventionists, and garrulous patriots is inconsistent with the incompetence and delusion of the ruling American elites.

every so often my local electronic fishwrap publishes one of my 'letters' aka, article. here is the latest with the rest at the link;

American politicians and media talk of regime change in Iran as if it’s their divine right, and actively do so about countries worldwide. Most Americans think the 1979 seizure of the American Embassy in Tehran by Islamist revolutionaries was the start of the Empire-Iran conflict. ‘Consumers’ don’t know that those Iranians were reacting to seventy years of American/British interference in their country in which Iran’s oil resources and people were terribly exploited by the Empire and brutally oppressed by an American installed dictator some of that time.
Winston Churchill, as a naval cabinet official, began abusing Iran before WWI using the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, known today as BP, stealing Iran’s oil to fuel Britain’s warships. During WWII British and American actions caused the death of large numbers of Iranians. The Empire was then replacing Britain as the world’s superpower. State Department official Wallace Murray described America’s intentions in 1942: “The obvious fact is that we shall soon be in the position of actually running Iran.”
In 1951 Iran’s citizens, perhaps encouraged by Truman’s promise to “assist free people to work out their own destinies in their own way”, elected Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh as prime minister. Mossadegh fought Western exploitation, nationalized Anglo-Iranian Oil, expelled British technicians and broke off diplomatic relations with London. His was the most popular and democratic government Iranians have ever known: Time naming him its Man of the Year for 1951, called him “the Iranian George Washington”.
The British were furious and plotted to remove Iran’s democratically elected government hoping for American help. Truman opposed it but Eisenhower didn’t. Eisenhower’s secretary of state, John Foster Dulles, whose brother Allen Dulles was director of the CIA, wanted Mossadegh out. Both brothers had been attorneys at a law firm that represented Anglo-Iranian Oil.
The CIA launched Operation Ajax in 1953 headed by Kermit Roosevelt, inciting street violence creating revolution. Americans got access to Iranian oil, the Shah was given his throne and Mossadegh was imprisoned. Iran’s oil was again controlled by foreigners. America claimed all of this was done to prevent Iran from “going communist”. A 1953 State Department report concluded that Mossadegh had no communist sympathies and had opposed Soviet meddling. Iran’s main communist party had opposed Mossadegh.
 i have several sites i go to daily to see if anything new is posted because i enjoy what they say and how they say it. this viderebel is one of those along with paul craig roberts and kunstler. he makes many good points in this post some of which i've been thinking about for some time;

If you see a candidate for the Senate or Congress, please ask them if they will fully fund a wall. If not, will they be willing to share America with 877 million other people, most of whom do not care about our culture?
Milton Friedman once said that if you have no border, people will continue to come until wages are equal on both sides meaning Mexicans come until wages in Juarez and Tijuana are the same as Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
For some time I have been looking at Venezuela. People argue back and forth about their politics. But am I the only one looking at their Population Bomb? In 1950 there were 5,482,000 Venezuelans. Today there are 31.57 million. That is an increase of 576%.
In 1950 America had 152.3 million people up from 123 million in 1929. We lost 3 million Americans to starvation in the 1930s, but gained 30 million which would include a lot of (Jewish?) immigrants.
If America’s population had grown by 576% since 1950 we would have 877.4 million people today.
America’s infrastructure deficit is about $4 trillion. That means if we can’t find $4 trillion to spend on American nation building, we will be a Third World country in a generation. A friend or relative who just had a baby will raise a child who might graduate from high school and might find a job but have no expectation that the roads will not destroy their cars and bridges will not collapse while they cross.
 this is one bit from the article which i found to be quite well constructed, with some great comments as well;
i was sent this via email and include the message and link as it came to me. i think the person who sent it sums it up much better than i could add to in any useful way;

I urge you to access the link I provide below to an 11 min+ video of high value. 

Look well beyond the click-bait title and the paltry-short segment of Dr. Phil's show - aired March 5, 2018.

His lady guest was in Tower 1 at the time of AA11's impact - and speaks of traveling UP an elevator to the Plaza (street) level.
Then she describes being jolted and rocked in the elevator that had its doors blown open.
She mentions an explosion and debris field in the lobby - well after the plane had hit some 90 floors above, before the collapse.

This video is about much, much more than anything Dr. Phil ever did or said - on any show prior or since.
It's about 500+ eyewitnesses' video-archived oral testimonies about explosions before and after the impacts and collapses.
It's about the NY Times' court-ordered publication of that list of eyewitnesses and references to their testimonies...and of course...crickets.

In spite of the BBC's and Jane Pauley's kowtow role being outed by the premature announcement of the Salomon Brothers Building's collapse...
...and more's about much, much more than a bats, balls and wickets game in bloody ol''s about verifiable explosions...
...and the hundreds who testified about them.  Explosions for which...somehow I suspect...The City of London is likely one epicenter.

As everyone in this group is well aware - many among those 500+ were first responders, NYFD and NYPD - reputable, believable, trustworthy.
It also features CNN's, BBC's and others' audio recordings of explosions accompanying live video feeds - after the Towers' collapses...
...and before Tower 7's.  And mention of Barry Jenkins' story (when he escorted a FEMA official to Giuliani's 23rd floor command center)...
...where he was met with a tremendous explosion in the stairwell near the 8th floor - and his courage and heroism to save his and another's life.

In short...this video is well worth 12 minutes of your time...and your subsequent efforts to help it go viral.
It shows barely over 9000 views after 5 1/2 months!??  As such, I must wonder if this video had been uploaded previously and taken down??

Please view and listen - and let me know your thoughts.  Tag, you're it.
 those of us who see israel as a criminal enterprise welcome articles like this one posted here. much more can be found at the link providing more details;

The failure of the coordinated efforts of the West, its Arab allies, and Israel to redraw the map of the Middle East by forcing regime change in Syria has exposed Israel’s declining power across the region.
Russia’s intervention in the Syrian war on the side of Syria’s government turned the tide against ISIS, al Qaeda, and the al-Nusra Front who received arms, intelligence, and training from the West and its allies, especially Britain, France, Turkey, Jordan, Israel, and Saudi Arabia. It also placed a spotlight on a regime change policy that had all the hallmarks of a neoconservative agenda that risked helping Israel find an excuse to go to war with Hezbollah in Lebanon and provoke a major confrontation with Iran that would drag in Western powers.
Israel has been advocating for regime change in Syria from the days of the Bush-Cheney administration. It convinced Vice President Dick Cheney that Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Iran were ripe for a campaign to overthrow their leaders. Cheney saw to it that Syria was at the top of a regime hit list drawn up in the Pentagon and in the smoke-filled rooms of big corporate donors in Washington.
The reason Syria featured so prominently was because of Israel’s undue influence in Washington politics and its determination to hold on to the Golan Heights, which it illegally seized and has continued to hold since the 1967 Six-Day War. The Golan Heights was and, according to international law, remains Syrian territory that Israel is exploiting for military and financial gains.
From the time it seized the Golan Heights, Israel has been determined not to lose it. To that end, it has plotted to weaken Bashar al-Assad’s government and to advocate in Washington for a plot to put in place a pro-Western Syrian government that would never question Israel’s Golan occupation.
During this latest regime change war in Syria, Israel secretly aided the al-Nusra Front and illegally bombed Syria. It has continued to do this as the war winds down. Israel has also made every effort to drag Hezbollah and Iran into a shooting war, but they have not taken the bait.

this is, seemingly, the state of the catholic church from days gone by, and now;

john mccain's funeral procession;

i pasted all of the article here as its short enough to do so, and worthy of a full read i believe. you can certainly make your own conclusions, and if you disagree, say so in the comments;

It probably goes without saying that Israel is continuing its preparation for war against its regional rival Iran on the basis of the alleged ‘Iranian threat’ to its existence. (1) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has sought to provoke a coup against the Iranian government by agitating for regime change by ‘ordinary Iranians’ on Twitter (2) and he has also been caught on video explicitly calling for the Iranian government to be subject to Iraqi-style ‘regime change’. (3)

This has been echoed by Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman who has explicitly discussed Israeli military action in Syria – a key regional ally of Iran’s – to stop the secular Arab country rebuilding its military following the coming end of country’s long-running civil war. (4) In addition to an unnamed senior Israeli official echoing this view in an interview with Israeli newspaper Haaretz in recent days. (5)

Add to this the fact that Israel has been running ‘mock raids’ against Syrian targets on the shared border between the two countries (6) and the fact that Israel’s Manchurian candidate in the White House – Donald Trump – has been busy explicitly threatening to invade Iran on Israel’s behalf. (7) While American traitors – bought and paid for by the Israel Lobby – like US National Security Adviser John Bolton, (8) former US National Security Adviser Henry McMaster (9) and CIA Director Mike Pompeo (10) have been desperately talking up the ‘necessity’ of spilling gallons of American blood and spending untold amounts of taxpayers’ money in service to the foreign policy of Israel.

Heck the United States has even created a joint task force with Israel to ‘increase internal pressure’ in Iran – in the same way the United States ‘increased internal pressure’ in Eastern Europe with the ‘colour revolutions’ in the last two decades – with a view to ‘regime change’. (11) This is despite the occasional perfunctory ‘denial’ by senior US officials like US Secretary of Defence James Mattis. (12)

After all you don’t want to make it too obvious that Donald Trump is operating in Israel’s – not America’s – interest now do you?

The reason for the ramping up of Israeli rhetoric and the Israel Lobby trying to prod the United States into invading Iran on Israel’s behalf is the same as the reason that Israel is now increasing closely-allied to the main purveyors of Islamic fanaticism and terrorism to Western Europe and North America: Saudi Arabia and Qatar. (13)

This is simply that Iran bet on the right horse – Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian Arab Army - at the start of the Syrian Civil War and is reaping the spoils with lucrative rebuilding contracts (14) along with Russia. (15) While Israel, the Sunni bloc led by Saudi Arabia and their bought and paid for agents in the West bet on the wrong horse – Islamic State, Al-Qaeda’s Al-Nusra Front and a variety of other jihadi… sorry… ‘pro-democracy’ groups – and are now trying to re-inflame the war by widening it to Iran itself or at the very least bomb Assad’s Syrian Arab Army into the ground.

If the West wasn’t controlled by jews – aided and abetted by their fair-weather Islamic allies – then we would have done what Russia did and supported the legitimate government of Syria against the Islamic fanatics that were armed by Israel and the Sunni bloc. We would also be threatening to bomb Israel and Saudi Arabia not Iran and Syria. Who would be natural allies in such a fight against the imperialist insanity of Islamic State and Wahhabi Islam.

We cannot let such a travesty happen not least because of all the American blood that would be spilled in support of Israel’s foreign policy, but also because such a conflict would have the strong potential of dragging in Russia and thus triggering a true Third World War.
 this article shows where the empire's residents are headed, and if you can see between the lines, why.
years ago a friend asked when everyone has a college degree, who will pick up the trash. then 'our' government enabled 'our' corporations to move your job to asia sose they could make more profit for their 'shareholders'. it won't be long until much of what this article speaks about is reality here and if you think back forty years, our current state of affairs would have equally been unimaginable;

My first book, Fake House (2000), was dedicated to “the unchosen,” and by that, I meant all those who are not particularly blessed at birth or during life, just ordinary people, in short, with their daily exertion and endurance. Further, I’ve always considered losing to be our common bond and bedrock, for no matter how smug you may be at the moment, you’ll be laid out by a sucker punch soon enough. Being born into a war-wracked lesser country undoubtedly made it easier to think this way.
Though I spent more than three decades in the shining city on a hill, the indispensable, greatest nation ever, I was still mostly surrounded by the unchosen, such as Tony, who died at 56, just months after being fired from his restaurant job, with his last apartment freezing from unpaid bills, or 66-year-old Chuck, who’s carless and has but a tiny room in a group home, as he suffers through his divorce and alimony payments, or 55-year-old Beth, whose crepe restaurant has gone belly up, so for economic reasons can’t dump a husband who chronically cheats on her with both men and women.
A 35-year-old Philly friend who’s been semi-homeless for the last two years just told me she doesn’t even have a phone any more, so must wait for up to an hour at the library to use a computer for 30 minutes, a predicament that severely limits her ability to find a job. She barely survives by cleaning houses.
Surely, all these American tales of woes must pale next to Vietnamese ones, you must be thinking, for it must be horrific to be poor in such a poor country, no?
 whitehead focuses upon 'law enforcement' in much of his writing. in this piece he shows us how the fourth amendment has essentially vanished and this is due to actions by 'our' government which is tasked with enforcing that law, but doesn't and hasn't since the 911 false flag;

“There are always risks in challenging excessive police power, but the risks of not challenging it are more dangerous, even fatal.”—Hunter S. Thompson, 
I have known a lot of good cops, I have defended a lot of good cops, and I have been fortunate to call a number of good cops friends.
So when I say that warrior cops—hyped up on their own authority and the power of the badge—have not made America any safer or freer, I am not disrespecting any of the fine, decent, lawful police officers who take seriously their oath of office to serve and protect their fellow citizens, uphold the Constitution, and maintain the peace.
My beef is with the growing squads of warrior cops who have been given the green light to kill, shoot, taser, abuse and steal from American citizens in the so-called name of law and order.
These cops are little more than vigilantes with a badge.
Indeed, it is increasingly evident that militarized police armed with weapons of war who are allowed to operate above the law and break the laws with impunity have not made America any safer or freer.
Don’t take my word for it.
A new study by a political scientist at Princeton University concludes that militarizing police and SWAT teams “provide no detectable benefits in terms of officer safety or violent crime reduction.”
anyone who has been reading my posts will be aware i value what pcr has to say about most anything he writes about. in this one he makes clear that the 'international order' we hear 'our free press' speak about means the control of the world by the empire. it has become a sick joke to me, and many, that russia runs america, and here pcr goes into detail about that fantasy. its longer than his usual postings but well worth reading i believe;

According to the New York Times Putin Rules America
President Trump is only his handyman
Paul Craig Roberts
When I first read this — — I thought it was a caricature of fake news. Then I realized it was a New York Times article, and being fairly certain that the arrogant presstitute organization was not taking the piss out of itself, as it is one of the main purveyors of fake news, I found the conclusion unavoidable that Julian E. Barnes and Matthew Rosenberg were so tightly bound inside The Matrix that they might actually believe the nonsense that they wrote.
Here is an overview of the fantasy that the two presstitutes have penned in the New York Times:
US intelligence (sic) had “informants close to President Vladimir V. Putin and in the Kremiln” who provided “urgent and explicit warnings about Russia’s intentions to try to tip the [2016] American presidential election.” The NYT presstitutes do not say why nothing was done by US intelligence which had inside information from the Kremlin itself that Putin was about to steal for Trump the US election. Certainly CIA Director Brennan and FBI Director Comey, both of whom are Hillary’s allies, would not have approved of Putin stealing the election for Trump. But there is no criticism from the NY Times’ presstitutes for this massive intelligence failure to act to prevent Putin from stealing the election from Hillary. Brennan and Comey sat on their hands and permitted Putin to steal the election for Trump. So, who is really guilty of “Russiagate?”
 this looks like the empire is on another rampage intending to stir up more crap. what do you think?

Weapons in, drugs out.
Via: Russian Government / TASS:
Russia has recorded flights of unidentified helicopters delivering weapons to the Taliban (a movement outlawed in Russia) and the Islamic State (a terror group outlawed in Russia) units active in Afghanistan, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday.
“We would like to once again point to the flights of unidentified helicopters in northern Afghanistan, which deliver weapons and ammunition to local ISIL [the former name of the Islamic State group – TASS] units and Taliban members cooperating with the group. In particular, the Afghan media and local residents say that such helicopters were seen in the Sar-e Pol Province,” the Russian diplomat said.
“This is happening in close proximity to the borders of Central Asian states, while many of the IS militants active in Afghanistan come from those countries,” Zakharova pointed out.
The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman also said that the Afghan security agencies, as well as the Command of US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, did not react to those helicopter flights. “In this regard, the question arises – who is behind these flights, who provides weapons to the terrorists and secretly creates springboards for them near the southern borders of the CIS and why is it happening at all, given NATO’s actual control of Afghanistan’s airspace,” Zakharova said.

here's a five minute video well worth considering in my estimation. perhaps you have someone 'official' you can speak with about this;
i've always found brother nathanael to be accurate in his videos, and as a jew who converted to christianity, he has a front row seat to the foolishness;
this is a good question you'll not hear asked by 'our free press';

i've liked everything i've seen from this site. the video url is listed because i don't know how to copy the graphic showing it. he always raises good questions;

For some time I have been telling my readers that we can expect a worldwide Depression far worse than 1933 because we have more Unpayable Debts to cancel than at any time in history. We do not have a non-interest bearing currency Like President Lincoln’s Greenbacks or the British Bradford pound of WW I.
We compound our errors by allowing banks to create checking account money that enables them to charge us interest on money they create out of nothing. This generates enormous quantities of Unpayable Debts. This in turn sets us up for another Great Depression. My regular readers know three million Americans starved to death in the last Depression in the 1930s.
Of late I have warned readers that we are entering a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) in 2019. In the Maunder Minimum the price of wheat rose 400%. Wheat is already in short supply. In the Dalton Minimum there was a volcano in Indonesia in 1815 that sent so much ash into the air that there was no summer in 1816. There were only one billion people living on the earth at that time. Now we have 6.6 billion more people and we have all seen lots of earthquakes and volcanoes in the news of late.
We could easily get into a currency reset where foreigners dump their dollars devaluing the purchasing power of our paychecks and pensions by 50% or more overnight.
We could also see huge crop losses due to drought in many regions while others lose their harvests to early frosts and even to hail and torrential rains. This has happened in previous Grand Solar Minimums.
One escape route for the Bankers who have robbed American taxpayers of tens of trillions of dollars would be to start race wars all over the globe. Against whites in South Africa. Or by Mexicans against blacks in California.
Below is a video from Red Ice. It is an appeal for us to help the Boers of South Africa.

i can't imagine thinking this stuff would be worth trying;

when you next tell me that the empire is a democracy, consider the following article which surely shows that concept to be a dead skunk in the middle of the road;

Eric Zuesse
Yet another poll confirms that America’s dictatorial clique take advantage of the ignorance and gullibility of the average person so that the clique’s politicians can win votes no matter how much these politicians block passage and enforcement of any proposed laws that the dictators don’t want to pass or to be enforced.
In this latest case, the owners of the insurance companies refuse to allow single-payer (i.e., tax-financed, as opposed to for-profit) health insurance, though three-quarters of the American people, in the latest poll, want it, and though past polls (which likewise were hidden from the public) also overwhelmingly indicate that the public want it.
For decades now, the owners have blocked it, though the public have overwhelmingly wanted it.
This particular poll-finding was a poll taken by Ipsos for the Reuters ’news’-agency and was made public by Reuters on August 23rd; and what Ipsos found, regarding this matter, was effectively kept secret by the sponsoring ’news’-organization (Reuters), by their burying it within a bad article that Reuters issued under an almost unrelated headline, “Inside the progressive movement roiling the Democratic Party”, in which report, this finding didn’t even pertain to “the progressive movement roiling the Democratic Party” (the article’s alleged topic) but instead, pertained to the entire U.S. electorate, and was merely found to be more pronounced among Democrats than it was among Republicans — as it long has been, and so that’s not even news at all.
the equivalent of this would be hard to find but the false flag tactic is a large tool of the empire; 

The US warned Russia it would attack Syria again if chemical weapons (CW) were used by the government forces. According to Bloomberg, National Security Adviser John Bolton told his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, at a meeting in Geneva on Aug. 23 that the US “is prepared to respond with greater military force than it has used against Assad’s regime in the past.” US officials supposedly “have information” that the Syrian military is preparing a chemical attack in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib. Mr. Bolton had also stressed publicly the US readiness to use force on a larger scale before the meeting with his Russian counterpart. On Aug. 21, the US, the UK, and France issued a joint statement likewise threatening military action against Syria if a chemical attack occurred. The US has delivered strikes against Syria twice before, in 2017 and 2018. No evidence to confirm the allegations that the Syrian government was behind the chemical attacks has ever been presented.
Russia believes a potential attack is nothing more than a provocation to justify military action. The Russian Defense Ministry issued a statement on Aug. 25 stating that the Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham militants had brought eight containers of chlorine to Idlib in order to stage a false-flag attack with the help of UK intelligence agencies. A group of Tahrir al-Sham fighters trained to handle chemical warfare agents by the UK private military company Olive arrived in the suburbs of the city of Jisr ash-Shugur, Idlib, 20 km. from the Turkish border.
This prompts some questions. The Syrian government forces are winning the war. They control most of the country and continue to make advances. Why would they use CW now if they did not use them in 2014 or 2015 when they were retreating? The political and military gains the rebels could win by staging provocations are obvious, while the Syria military has no reason to use CW even if it had them. After all, the Syrian army has no trouble winning with conventional weapons wherever it goes.
As the previous military actions in Syria demonstrated, the attacks boost presidential approval ratings. President Trump needs to distract the public’s attention from the hush payments made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal after his alleged affairs. These dalliance scandals are the last thing he needs during the midterm election campaigns. Syria and alleged CW attacks could come in handy.
He and his party badly need to do something in Syria before the November vote to support the image of the US as the defender of the “poor” Syrians suffering from the “atrocities” of Assad’s regime. The US global standing has suffered as a result of unimpressive operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. It needs to be burnished. Heading an international coalition against Syria, an Iranian ally, is the way to restore the US image as an indispensable nation in the Middle East.
If Syria establishes full control over Idlib province, the hope, no matter how slim, of overthrowing Syrian President Assad will be dead. Any pretext would do to justify an intervention to prevent such a turn of events. The rebels in Idlib are viewed as allies in the fight against Iran. Besides, the alleged CW in the hands of Assad fuels the narrative of Russian cheating in 2013 during the elimination of the Syrian CW stockpile. “Losing” Syria would lead to diminishing US influence in Iraq, which is also viewed as a battlefield against Iran.
The US administration has frozen some $200 million in funds earmarked for Syria’s recovery but it is ready to spend money on military actions against that country. Congress has failed to include a Senate-backed provision in the 2019 FY budget law to give the Defense Department $25 million per year and increased authority to support stabilization efforts in Syria. But the use of force in Syria is by and large warmly supported by lawmakers.
A staged “chemical attack” is the way to invent a pretext for using force against Syria and pressing for a rollback of Russia and Iran. With Idlib liberated and an agreement reached between Damascus and the Kurds, Syria will have fundamentally regained its territorial integrity, making it “lost” to the West and its Persian Gulf allies. Russia, Iran, and Turkey will act as mediators promoting a peaceful settlement. The “chemical attack” provocation will be staged as an attempt to scuttle such a development.
it would appear that finally the germans may have had enough and i say why has it taken them this long;

Thousands of police have been deployed in the streets of the east German city of Chemnitz after huge crowds of angry Germans gathered to protest against—and attack—nonwhite invaders pretending to be refugees after yet another murder by Syrians and Iraqis in the city. 
According to a statement issued by the police in Saxony, the crowds gathered after “there were several calls in social media to be in the inner city area” following the attack on the whites by the nonwhite gang.
The police statement said that people started gathering in the city center at 3 pm, and within an hour and half, the crowd had swelled by another “estimated 800 people” who gathered “in the area of the Karl Marx Monument.”
this article from  unz could easily be titled 'israel owns the world' as seen from the evidence and points it provides;

Many believe that the easily observable dominance of the friends of Israel over some aspects of government policy is a phenomenon unique to the United States, where committed Jews and Christian Zionists are able to control both politicians and the media message relating to what is going on in the Middle East. Unfortunately, the reality is that there exists an “Israel Lobby” in many countries, all dedicated to advancing the agendas promoted by successive Israeli governments no matter what the actual interests of the host country might be. Failure to confront Israel’s crimes against humanity combined with an inability to resist its demands regarding how issues like anti-Semitism and hate speech are defined has done terrible damage to free speech in Western Europe and, most notably, in the Anglophone world.
For the United States this corruption of the media and the political process by Israel has meant endless wars in the Middle East as well of loss of civil liberties at home, but some other countries have compromised their own declared values far beyond that. Former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper praised Israel completely inaccurately as a light that “…burns bright, upheld by the universal principles of all civilized nations – freedom, democracy justice.” He has also said “I will defend Israel whatever the cost” to Canada, an assertion that some might regard as very, very odd for a Canadian head of state.
In some other cases, Israel plays hardball directly, threatening retribution against governments that do not fall in line. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently warned New Zealand that backing a U.N. resolution condemning Israeli settlements would be a “declaration of war.” He was able to do so because he had confidence in the power of the Israel Lobby in that country to mobilize and produce the desired result.
as you may have noticed i think pcr to usually be quite good at describing the scenario that surrounds us.  in this piece he speaks of several hypocrisies, mcstain being one of them;

Caitlin Johnstone warned us that the liberals were going to make a hero out of warmonger John McCain.
All morning long NPR has been conducting eulogies for warmonger McCain, who is having a state funeral both in DC and in Arizona. Liberal Democrat Charles Schumer wants to rename the senate office building named after Richard Russell, a real senator, after McCain, a pimp for the military/security complex and supporter of every terrorist group that Washington could organize to sic on the Soviets, the Sandinistas, the Libyans, the Syrians.
McCain’s hero status from being a POW in North Vietnam is disputed by other POWs who say that he collaborated with the North Vietnamese.
It was John McCain’s father, Admiral John McCain, who covered up the Israeli attack on the USS liberty that produced 208 US Navy casualties. Admiral Tom Moorer, Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told me that a real US Navy admiral would have resigned before he would participate in a shameful coverup at the expense of the lives of American service men.
In America the way to become a hero is to stand up for war and more war. On this basis, John McCain is a hero.

 kunstler again with some good points about 'our' current political games that you probably won't see on 'our' free tv indoctrination programs;

With Russian “meddling” stalled in the dead letter office, The New York Times has apparently re-branded itself Floozie Central in its quixotic campaign to unseat the Golden Golem of Greatness by all means necessary. The Stormy Daniels affair, and its slime-trail of payoffs, is the slender thread that the Resistance hopes to hang Donald Trump on.
The great legal minds of cable TV have been very busy trying to suss out which part of the $130,000 non-disclosure payoff might apply as a campaign financing violation. If Rudy Giuliani still had his wits about him, of course, he would claim that the money was just Ms. Daniel’s going rate for an overnight frolic amongst her legendary twin peaks, that is, a sex worker’s simple transaction fee. Where does it say in the constitution that a president may not consort with tramps and hussies?
It was hilarious to discover that Mr. Trump’s erstwhile personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, picked DC Swamp attorney and Clinton insider, Lanny Davis, to represent him in negotiations with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It must be like the old days in the locker room of the Burning Tree Golf Club for Lanny and Bob. They go back at least to the days when the Clintons fended off accusations of issuing pardons to special friends for a $450,000 payoff on Bubba’s last day in office, January 19, 2001. And there must have been a reunion around 2010 on the Uranium One matter, in which a tidy $145-million from Russian Oligarch Central landed in the Clinton Foundation coffers after Madam Secretary Hillary signed onto a go-ahead with the U-1 deal.
 this came in from a friend this morning and i include it here as being fully worthy of attention with no more needed to be said by me;


This article was written by JJ Paul McCartney who says:

For anyone who doesn’t know the real John McCain let me help you get to know
him. And remember this doesn’t even mention his traitorous acts while he was
a POW.
Okay, people…before John McCain dies and the ridiculous “tributes” to the man make me vomit, let’s remember what McCain’s real legacy is: His father was the Admiral in charge of the Pacific fleet prosecuting the war in
Vietnam Nam.
Because of this McCain got preferential treatment in the Navy. He was allowed to become a Navy pilot. But he was a terrible pilot.
McCain crashed two Navy Jets in his early career. Then while aboard the Aircraft Carrier USS Forrestal, McCain got angry because he had to wait in line to take off on a bombing run.
He shut off his engines, opened the cockpit, and in his haste to exit the aircraft to chew someone out about his having to ” wait”, he hit the button that released his live bombs onto the deck of the Forrestal.
 a great idea and move that's long behind the time it should have been made;

In a firm display of confidence, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called for the creation of an independent payment system that doesn’t rely on the U.S. dollar.
Citing the Financial Times, a Zero Hedge report quoted Maas (emphasis ours):
Europe should not allow the US to act over our heads and at our expense. For that reason it’s essential that we strengthen European autonomy by establishing payment channels that are independent of the US, creating a European Monetary Fund and building up an independent Swift system…
The report continued, stating Europe no longer wants to be a “vassal state” to the global currency monopoly the U.S. has enjoyed since 1944 when the Bretton Woods agreement was put into place.
In light of the Foreign Minister’s proclamation, the dollar’s domination may well be coming to an end.
For decades, the dollar has been the most circulated currency in the world, with $580 billion located outside of the U.S. That, combined with the general strength of the American economy, has put the dollar in first place.
 what will happen next? finally someone has found a way to get the questions out in some public and perhaps official avenue;

Good news has finally come along for the many people who know office fires cannot bring down modern steel framed skyscrapers, and it’s good news for the rest of the world as well. On April 10th of this year, the non-profit Lawyers Committee for 9-11 Inquiry filed a petition with the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, Manhattan, formally requesting that he present to a grand jury, as a U.S. Attorney, extensive evidence of federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11/2001. The petition cites broad and conclusive evidence, providing proof of explosives and incendiaries employed at ground zero to bring down the twin towers and WTC Building 7.(1)
Incredibly, America’s government waged war around the world to retaliate for 9-11, but never thoroughly investigated the collapse of these three WTC skyscrapers. This petition with the Department of Justice, for the first time, brings forward into a court of law the cavalcade of credible evidence disproving the official story which blames fire alone for the collapse of these buildings. The 52 page petition, with 57 exhibits, also points out that this crime of bombing a public building was not committed by a single person acting alone, and asks the jurors to inquire into the crimes of aiding and abetting and conspiracy.

Pope Francis was greeted by rapturous crowds as he toured the streets of Dublin yesterday at the start of his historic visit to Ireland – only the second ever to the country by a Pontiff.
It was a warmth that will no doubt have come as some relief, given the cold shadow of abuse now covering the Catholic Church. That shadow will be all-too apparent once again today when Francis travels to Knock and its famous shrine to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
For Knock in the west of Ireland is just a short distance from another, darker landmark – a mass grave containing the remains of up to 800 babies and children at a former home for unmarried mothers in Tuam, Co Galway.

Investigative Journalist Jen Moore was found dead in a suburban Washington D.C. hotel room Monday. August 20, 2018, according to police and shocked and distraught friends and colleagues.
Moore died of an apparent seizure. Police are closely investigating the cause of death after former FBI Agent Robyn Gritz, a friend of Moore’s, made inquiries with homicide detectives Monday afternoon in Prince Georges County, Maryland. Preliminary reports from police said the death was not the result of suicide.  
Moore’s body was found by employees at the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Washington, D.C. East – in Capitol Heights, Maryland. The investigation is ongoing. An autopsy had not been scheduled as of late Monday.
Moore, an advocate who investigated abused and trafficked children, had been in the process of investigating allegations by a 26-year-old man that — as a young boy — he was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and pimped out at private sex parties attended by other D.C. elites.
In fact, just four weeks before her death, Moore filed details of the alleged victim’s claims with the Department of Homeland Security, detailing the allegations against Clinton. Moore contacted Homeland Security beginning on July 6th through July 9th, records show. A week later, she contacted the FBI with identical details about the victim and the shocking allegations against Clinton.
FBI sources report no case has been opened on the evidence supplied by Moore. Homeland Security officials could not be reached for comment.
Moore had approached True Pundit’s Thomas Paine in June with the allegations against Clinton. Paine conducted a series of face-to-face interviews with Moore and the alleged victim in various locales. By July, the victim agreed to tell his story to Paine. But Moore and the traumatized victim wanted to contact Homeland Security and the FBI first to see if they would open a criminal case against Clinton prior to publicizing the claims.
“Jen thought that with a criminal probe, federal agents could use the victim possibly to dangle in front of Clinton to see if he made a mistake or tried to pay him off,” Paine said. “She was worried about the safety of the victim and was working to find him safe harbor until this story broke.
Now she is the one who turned up dead.”

Guest Post by Ben Garrison

  • 1. On July 29, 1967, the spoiled brat McCain pulled a prank and wet started his jet as while aboard the USS Forrestal. His mother lovingly called him a ‘scamp’ and it was well known he was a practical joker and rule breaker. He finished near rock bottom in a class of over 800 at Annapolis because he tried to break every rule in the book there while also making terrible grades. Such a prank befits his character. The huge flame created touched off a bomb on the plane behind him which led to more bombs going off from other parked planes, which then led to the deaths of 134 sailors. McCain did nothing to help during the fire. He was whisked off the carrier and protected because his father and grandfather were Navy admirals. The Deep State Swamp media has since tried to cover this up. They protect their own.

  • 2. He was not a hero. Getting shot down and captured may make him a victim, but not a hero. He probably didn’t pay attention during a training class, and so he didn’t pull in his arms when he ejected over North Vietnam–and that’s why they were broken. His captors knew he was the progeny of four star admirals and if anything gave him special treatment. McCain begged for medical treatment and sang like a bird at the ‘Hanoi Hilton’ to get it. He gave up vital intelligence that led to the deaths of more aviators.
 there have been more attacks against this country than that upon the uss liberty. this article explores another that i'm sure you are unaware of;

John Gunther Dean, now 92, and a former American ambassador to five countries, has long maintained that Israel was behind his attempted assassination on August 28, 1980, in a suburb of Beirut, which was attributed to a rightwing Lebanese group.
Dean and his wife and daughter and son-in-law were in a motorcade and narrowly escaped serious injury.
Dean said that he was targeted because he was doing something regarded as antithetical to Israel’s interest: consulting with the Palestine Liberation Organization and its head, Yasser Arafat, at a time when such contacts were the third rail in US politics.
He was also outspokenly critical of Israeli attacks on Lebanon.A new book offers backing to Dean’s claim. But while that book has been highly-publicized, the question of whether Israel attacked our ambassador has gotten no attention in the press. That is not a surprise; for Dean has asserted that the case itself was never thoroughly investigated by the U.S. government.
Let’s begin this story where I first heard about it, from historian Remi Brulin’s twitter thread on May 30:
“On August 28, 1980, the three-car motorcade of John Gunther Dean, the American Ambassador to Lebanon, was attacked on the motorway by several assailants armed with automatic rifles as well as light anti-tank weapons or LAWs. The ambassador and his wife escaped unscathed.
“This attack is in RAND’s ‘terrorism’ database. Entry states that ‘responsibility for attack was later claimed by the Front for the Liberation of Lebanon from Foreigners, a shadowy right-wing group.’ Various media outlets at the time reported on FLLF taking credit for the attack…
“Over the years Ambassador Dean has repeatedly argued that Israel was behind the August 1980 attempt on his life. In an interview for the Oral History Project in September 2000, he explained how the Lebanese Intelligence services had managed to retrieve the empty canisters of two of the light anti-tank weapons (LAWs) that had been used during the attack on his motorcade and, during raiding a house by the intersection where the assault had taken place, found 8 more. Dean collected the numbers on the 10 missiles & sent them to Washington to be traced.
“Three weeks (and one angry phone call) later, the US Ambassador finally learned ‘where the light anti-tank weapons came from, where they were shipped to, on what date, who paid for them, and when they got to their destination.’

the following is more of things i've been working on in word docs for potential publishing in the local electronic fishwrap, but since i have more of that than they will actually publish, here it is here;

Trump’s triumphs: to favor obscene wealth in taxation; to scrap diplomacy and bait Russia; to fund military horrors he vowed to reduce; to vilify and punish the vulnerable; to spurn the world effort to reverse climate change; to reject the Iran nuclear deal; and to decapitate regimes in Syria, Venezuela, and fill in the blank. Each of these bizarre acts had to be based on his conviction of their supreme importance and his expectation of “winning” outcomes.  Each had to be carried out against resistance by misguided “losers” and perverse and deluded enemies.  The fact that his appalled opposition comprised the vast majority of the human race carried no weight with him. Suppose his tax lunacy or trade madness triggers the titanic meltdown in our Funhouse Finance Economy that experts know is in the cards?  Suppose his Middle School Macho provocations of Iran, or Korea, start a complex, irreversible slide to world war as the Serb ultimatum did in 1914? 
It’s hard to be empire, but it’s even harder, to be a truly virtuous society. First, I suppose, you can’t be insane. It’s hard to think of one aspect of American life that’s not insane now. Here are some; our politics are insane, our ideologies, universities, Medicine, Show biz, Sexual relations, and ‘news media’ are utterly insane. What passes for business enterprise in the Empire these days is something beyond insane, like swarms of serpents and bats issuing from some mouth of hell in the medieval triptychs.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote.
The Syrian ‘gas attacks’ are false flag events, and the idea that the Empire has their hand in such attacks to help oust Assad, while at the same time branding him a dictator and a war criminal, is nothing new. It’s not ‘Russian propaganda’ and it’s something that’s been happening for a long time. How many of these potential wars with North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China could we fight without having America bled and bankrupted? What conceivable benefit could we derive from these wars, especially with a China or Russia, to justify the many various costs? ‘Terrorists’ attacks of all varieties are certainly designed to lead ‘consumers’ to beg the state for greater security and restrictions. Guess who that benefits: the state.
Working people have no voice whatsoever in the control of the economy and their well-being. They’re forced instead to play an insulting game in which various parties of capital offer them candidates to choose from, in what are called “elections,” but really are selections; a system of appointing, through the illusion of the popular will, pre-selected candidates of wealth to carry out money’s agenda while candidates that represent the interests of the majority who have to work for a living aren’t permitted to be heard or are marginalized and ridiculed.
When Lord Acton coined the phrase “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” he might have had America in mind. Never mind ‘our’ leaders’ professed good intentions: possession of extraordinary military power continues to lead otherwise sensible people to pursue dangerous, even monstrous policies.

Media punditry in America is rarely fact-based, is never held accountable, and it’s nearly always ideologically driven. ‘Our’ government offers only war. We’re approaching the time where we’ll be forced to choose between obeying government; the law, or whatever a government official judges the law to be, and maintaining our individuality, integrity and independence. Orwell’s 1984, where “you had to live from habit that became instinct in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized” has now become our reality. Walking through a store, driving, checking email, or talking on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior.
The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about what government officials do: that’s why they’re called public servants. They’re supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that’s why we’re called private individuals; the hallmark of a healthy and free society has been radically reversed. Now, they know everything about what we do, and are constantly building systems to know more. Meanwhile, we know less and less about what they do, as they build walls of secrecy behind which they function. That’s the imbalance that needs to come to an end. No democracy can be healthy and functional if the most consequential acts of those who wield political power are completely unknown to those to whom they are supposed to be accountable. Truth requires more courage than lies.
