@ "dumbass" in the "France" thread: my point is that when historians/liars tout the "collapse of communism" they fail to draw a distinction between Stalin and Khruschev. Thus: Stalin died and was replaced by just another dictator. But that was the moment the Soviet experiment went off the rails, culminating in the pathetic Gorbachev falling beneath the spell of Reptilian Glamour.

I wasn't disagreeing with your main point but nitpicking. Thanks for clarifying your point here though, because it seems to me you're actually making a broader statement than I picked up in the prior thread. And it's regarding a geotemporal slice of history I "know" little about, other than the lies "taught" to every Oceanian but which I realize I must learn anew.

US media working overtime to promote/reinforce false narratives. Soon to be released Hell on Earth makes the case that "Assad created ISIS". Don't miss Owen Gleiberman's rave review (scroll down page at link) which includes the harrowing point of the whole exercise (manufactured consent):

... it's no longer possible to think of those citizens as "them." They are us, or could be.

Produced by National Geographic - which most USians view as trustworthy and non-political. Also slated for release worldwide.

Anyone that knows the truth should distribute copies of Sy Hersh's "The Redirection" (with highlighting of important passages), Ted Postol's reports about the faked sarin attack on April 4th, and other pertinent material at these movies.

I don't understand James Corbett citing an article from the NYT and joining in its mockery of Trump's "armada" going in the wrong direction. The mockery has spread to PBS.

Are NYT and PBS so eager for the war to start that they're making this the subject of their "news" and not calling out other bull?

Was Presidente, Militarist, CEO, and Entertainer Trump speaking on a tactical timeframe? If he said "I'm going to do another reality show", would people fault him for the series not starting immediately but waiting until fall? My point is: I'll withhold judgment on whether "Trump was making an empty boast" until a few months pass. And I'll refrain from mocking him at all if he refrains from unnecessarily killing people (otherwise known as murder).

The issue with Syria and "supporting Assad" (versus utter violent anarchy like libya and/or some other Sunni/KSA supported strongman like Egypt) such "when did you stop beating your wife" b.s. with the suggestion that one is condoning or accepting "crimes against humanity" by advocating Assad stay in power until he (and/or his party) is defeated in the normal course of national elections (another connundrum of "legitimacy" what with the percentage of the population either displaced or now "refugees", although a sustained national ceasefire and the prospect of election might see a mass migration of Syrians returning to Syria) ...

My impression is that the non-Jihadi Syrian anti-Assad populations (in county and in exile) are -- like their jihadi brethren and proxies -- anxious that "peace" not "break out" with Assad in power ... not that peace would "break out" if Assad left voluntarily (leaving a vacuum in which whole sale violence would, imho, almost certainly be reignited)

@Susan Sunflower #16:

>>>My impression is that the non-Jihadi Syrian anti-Assad populations (in county and in exile) are -- like their jihadi brethren and proxies -- anxious that "peace" not "break out" with Assad in power ...

You are demonstrably wrong about that. The non-Jihadi (i.e.: peaceful) opposition opposition to the Syrian Government have come out on MANY occasions, in the last 6 years, and declared that until the end of the fighting they:

A) Support the government, and
B) Devoutly oppose the armed opposition groups. Additionally,
C) Assad personally implemented several reforms and laid down several reforms that *immediately* increased democratic participation, along with accepting a timeline for full elections *BEFORE* full-blown Daesh aggression had been unleashed on the country.

These are commonplace facts that the Western media (along with that infantile moron, Louis Proyect) have all conveniently overlooked and maliciously ignored. Thus, the myths about Assad being an overarching evil figure that must be deposed first, before any progress can be made on democratizing the country and giving the people there more freedoms, are demonstrably wrong, and false.

@b (or anyone else here who wants to chime in): I'm just curious why the recent Russian-brokered "de-escalation zones" agreements are being discussed, here, as if they are some sort of "clever trick," or "ploy." I find it highly unlikely that the US/uk/Froggie/ZioNATO side doesn't know what is going on. And yet, I also scratch my head a bit, because yes, it does seem as if the outline suggests a set of actions that will strongly counter the Neocon/CFR plans, in the region.

In What Fascism Talk Really Accomplishes Peter Berkowitz of Stanford misses the duopoly forest for the partisan trees.

Razzel-dazzel faux populist leaders need a reason to betray their base, excuse their caving, and otherwise toe the establishment line. I call shill opposition to a faux populist President "enforcers". They are joined by "apologists" who try to explain away betrayals and caving on issues.

Trump is a 'fascist' as much as Obama was a 'Muslim socialist'.

Trump wasn't turned by the Deep State as apologists claim. He knows how faux populist politics works because he was close to the Clintons and led the 'birther movement'.

Long time lurker- Now with time to comment.

It is interesting how the debate about the causes and meaning of the collapse of the Soviet Union has bubbled up to the surface recently. In the 90's I followed the general consensus that the USSR focused too heavily on military spending with no societal benefit (much like the MIC in the US today) leaving a permanently dissatisfied populace. Military expenditure has no feedback benefit to the wider economy. A tank is a useless lump of iron. An MRI machine can improve health, improving economic potential and potentially saving money.
Today I would add that the Soviet elite came to the conclusion that they would materially benefit from 'westernization'. Their accurate view that they could have multiple Mercedes' and as many Italian suits as their hearts desired instead of a single Italian suit and a Volga. The luxury of having access to Nomenklatura stores paled in comparison to the prospect of flying to London and shopping in Harrods. Unfortunately for them many of could not ride the bucking pony as it descended into anarchy, though some did successfully transition to oligarchs.

What is Stalinism exactly?
As a thought experiment transport yourself back to 1914 and predict what nation on earth would be the first to put a man in space? Add on top of that, a nation that would experience a civil war, 2 wars- one of which is by a long margin the most brutal and devastating of all time, losing roughly a quarter of their population and having three quarters of their production infrastructure completely destroyed. At the same time improving literacy from 15% to near 100%, and providing universal (if not fantastic) health care and on and on.
I am not defending the brutal inhumanity of Stalinist USSR (Gulags, Holodmirs, KGB, show trials etc.) but when people talk about the 'failure' of the Soviet economy they are talking bollocks. Stalinist USSR achieved growth that arguably only present day China has seen the likes of.

New biography out about Obama, including conclusion that he has told out to the rich and famous. Along with a story of his college romances. Seems he ended up weighing what race his wife should be based on his desire to win in politics and get ahead fast and to the very top.

I remember how damn difficult it was to get information google searches back in 2007-8. I found enough to understand he was a Corporatist inside, and his actions belied his words very, very often. He also tended to suck up and kick down.

Remember all the questions about his life during uni years? That so little was known about him and his friends? This author decided to check the student directory, got the address, found out who else lived there. Seems it was only Obama and a long term girl friend.

If you google Stalin's crimes you will get bilge like this, page after page ad infinitum:

http://www.ibtimes.com/how-many-people-did-joseph-stalin-kill-1111789

In his acclaimed book “The Great Terror: Stalin’s Purge of the Thirties,” Anglo-American historian Robert Conquest said: “We get a figure of 20 million dead [under Stalin], which is almost certainly too low and might require an increase of 50 percent or so.”

See, it's an "acclaimed book". So, you know it's legit /s.

You like "thought experiments", eh? Here's one you can practice in the privacy of your own home. No internet, no textbooks, no history lessons required; just a working knowledge of arithmetic and cause and effect. Now ask yourself, How the heck do you get rid of 20,000,000 dead bodies? One way, the most obvious, is with mass graves. At, say, 10,000 corpses per grave, that's the equivalent of 2000 mass graves! Now ask yourself, Why has there been no outcry from confirmed anti-Communists, who love Freedom(tm) and hate Tyranny(tm) to "open the mass graves"? Because it's bullshit, that's why. Clearly, when it comes to Wicked Stalin and his Evil Deeds, forget most of what you think you know.

The last IS pocket in Mosul is rapidly shrinking.

Iraq is starting operations to close and control the Syrian border.

Iraq's prime minister made it clear US regime forces are getting kicked out as soon as IS finished off.

US regime planes banned from large parts of Syria including the Turkish border.

Huge numbers of Syrian troops are being freed up and being mobilized for a massive campaign with Russian airpower.

The dwindling number of terrorist pockets are rapidly being cleaned out around Damascus.

South East Aleppo will be the first areas to be cleared of remaining terrorists.

Some more cleanup in Homs and then huge pushes towards the Iraq and Jordan borders to sequre them.

And a massive assault on Deir al Zour once East Homs is wrapped up will effective end the US regime's attempts to partition off the East of Syria for their attack on Iran.

The silence from the US regime is a good indication of just how badly they have been beaten by Russia. Over the past few months US regime troops had been flooding into East Syria and clueless people were trying to claim a partition was inevitable.

Everyone but the US and Israeli regimes are onboard with the Russian plan. Russian troops are going to start flooding into Syria as peacekeepers. Both Russia and Turkey have come out and made explicit public statements that they are both completely commited to the complete territorial integrity of Syria.

There is going to be some messyness putting the Kerds in their place once Syria and Russia finish off the remaining terror groups like IS, FSA, etc. But the Kerds have little ability to make any serious trouble.

@30
Musings on the arithmetic of mass murder can be intellectually illustrative but they are rarely probative.

Who is the champion brutal killer? Stalin? Hitler? Mao? Pol Pot? Suharto? Nixon/Kissinger? Bush II? Madeline Albright? Kaiser Wilhelm?, King Leopold of Belgium? Genghis Khan? Cortez? etc. etc. Interestingly looking over that list only two left the world/their country a better place. Stalin and Nixon. Stalin as I argued above. Nixon did after all introduce the EPA and withdraw from Vietnam eventually.

Disposing of a purported (theoretical, abstract, non-natural causes) 20 million bodies over Stalin's reign (28 years) is easy. No mass graves required.

A 'thought experiment' for ruralito: If Stalin could be revived for a short chat, would he deny that his rule had been brutal? I think not. He would most likely, with a sanguine shrug of the shoulders say, that one cannot make an omelette without breaking some eggs. So why do you persist in denying Stalin's brutality when he would (and did in private correspondence!) admit it himself? Of course capitalist historians harp on endlessly about his brutality but your deny-response means they have tricked you into focusing on that issue exclusively so you never examine the other side of the coin. They have dictated to you the boundaries of the debate on Stalin's legacy.

@33 Perimetr

It seems like a collection of naysaying in that Fox report, from a scan of it. Nothing of substance, military posturing on the surface, and on the ground a different story.

As far as I can gather, all planes and drones are grounded in the deescalation zones. The Astana Memorandum has already been approved by the UN, I believe.

If US planes fly into a zone it'll be to bomb something, and they'll be the only thing in the air and on the radar. Even with the MSM providing smoke, it will be a significant fail to create such a naked footprint of what will presumably kill civilians. Russia has promised a full investigation of any incursion by any player. There will be clear evidence. I don't think the US likes to play so visibly.

Mercouris has laid out a pretty decent timeline of the last week to suggest that Trump and Putin have agreed on these zones, including in these particulars. Diplomatic exchanges suggest deal between Trump and Putin about Syria

Doubtful that the US-Israel-Saudi group is giving up, though.

E. Syrian gas fields are still in play, I would suspect.

Also, Yemen genocide looks inevitable if Trump insists on continuing the neocon arms trade with the Saudis.

The State Dept. line was pretty dismissive about de-escalation deal. Ceasefires have been broken before.

Were it not for Turkey throwing in with the R+6 consortium, the balance would be considerably different.

>> Anglo-American historian Robert Conquest said

"Historian"? Even wikipedia hasn't been scrubbed enough for me to refer to him as such:
----------------------------------------
In 1948 Conquest joined the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD), a "propaganda counter-offensive" unit created by the Labour Attlee government[9] in order to "collect and summarize reliable information about Soviet and communist misdoings, to disseminate it to friendly journalists, politicians, and trade unionists, and to support, financially and otherwise, anticommunist publications."[10] The IRD was also engaged in manipulating public opinion.[11]

But, we're supposed to presume Robert had no more business with the IRD while writing his historically accurate tomes about Voldemort.

Stalin and Trotsky had opposing views on the critical matter of "Socialism in one country"[Stalin} and Socialism exported outside USSR borders, immediately Europe and specificly Germany [Trotsky].

Stalin made the decision. Of course I do not know his thinking, yet I can guess he anticipated any overt attempt to spread Socialism would unite disparate The Powers That Be in many sovereign states to crush such a real threat to their status as TPTB. After all, Stalin was known to be an avid reader and quick-study of complex situations, especially regarding power politics.

On the other hand, IMO, Trotsky predicted that Socialism would be immediately attacked and overwhelmed whether it was exported or not. Recall, if you please, that Socialism was an idea that already had spread and indeed just the idea itself was a warning shot to any Kingdoms-of-interest. Ummm... UK? Kaiser Willy? and assorted plutocrat families, robber barons, dynasties? et al.

Regarding what exactly is Socialism, my own view was influenced by a 1949 essay Einstein wrote. I really had no view at all before I read it, so when it came to my attention, well... if Einstein had some thoughts on it, how could I ignore him:

Ruralito and all,

Which portions of the following speculative narrative -- "backfitted" to history given my understanding of Oceania's Machiavellian ways -- do you agree with or believe to be true? Why? Why not?

----------------

I value much of the information Alex Jones provides. But, I doubt his characterization of the Bolsheviks as just another set of bankers' puppets.

Alex said bankers bankrolled Lenin and then made a lot of money on loans to the USSR. But, even if that's true, the bankers probably didn't want the commies to *succeed* beyond destabilizing the existing regime.

For Oceania's bankers, the plan failed. First, Oceania rushed in with some troops to "help" the tsar they destabilized, a day late and a buck short. Second, the plan actually backfired. It created the first real threat to oligarchy, which at a meta level is the only type of government we've had since antiquity.

What did the bankers do next? They funded Hitler. Ultimately, Oceania made money on both sides of the action. After those two ground themselves down, Oceania swooped in to carpetbag scientists and occupy.

Taking banker money doesn't make you their evil puppet unless you follow their course. If you plot your own course and your agenda clashes with theirs, you're not their puppet.

Posted by: dumbass | May 8, 2017 12:06:58 AM | 39

add to my above commint:
Forgot to state that...
Trotsky wrote that the spread of Socialism might offset the predicted violence that was to come. Other sovereign states would be too busy suppressing the strikes, demands widespread violent unrest in their own fiefdoms. He certainly was familiar with the Romanov family' 300+ years of Tsardom.

By the way, anyone notice that broadcast of Stalin's brutality/crimes and USSR's horrible history seems always to omit the Romanov reign of slavery [serfdom] and general flogging by the ruling class.
Recall that Lincoln knew directly of the Tsar's freeing of serfs [2 years before Lincoln free the slaves]. Lincoln's own Ambassador [Cassius Marcellus Clay 1810-1903] witnessed it first-hand.

It is pretty clear that Marx was a globalist.

The bourgeoisie has through its exploitation of the world market given a cosmopolitan character to production and consumption in every country. To the great chagrin of Reactionists, it has drawn from under the feet of industry the national ground on which it stood. All old-established national industries have been destroyed or are daily being destroyed. They are dislodged by new industries, whose introduction becomes a life and death question for all civilised nations, by industries that no longer work up indigenous raw material, but raw material drawn from the remotest zones; industries whose products are consumed, not only at home, but in every quarter of the globe. In place of the old wants, satisfied by the production of the country, we find new wants, requiring for their satisfaction the products of distant lands and climes. In place of the old local and national seclusion and self-sufficiency, we have intercourse in every direction, universal inter-dependence of nations. And as in material, so also in intellectual production. The intellectual creations of individual nations become co mmon property. National one-sidedness and narrow- mindedness become more and more impossible, and from the numerous national and local literatures, there arises a world literature. The bourgeoisie, by the rapid improvement of a ll instruments of production, by the immensely facilitated means of communication, draws all, even the most barbarian, nations into civilisation. The cheap prices of commodities are the heavy artillery with which it batters down all Chinese walls, with which it forces the barbarians’ intensely obstinate hatred of foreigners to capitulate. It compels all nations, on pain of extinction, to adopt the bourgeois mode of production; it compels them to introduce what it calls civilisation into their midst, i.e., to become bourgeois themselves. In one word, it creates a world after its own image. .... The essential conditions for the existence and for the sway of the bourgeois class is the formation and augmentation of capital; the condition for capital is wage-labour. Wage-labour rests exclusively on competition between the labourers. The advance of industry, whose involuntary promoter is the bourgeoisie, replaces the isolation of the labourers, due to competition, by the revolutionary combination, due to association. The development of Modern Industry, therefore, cuts from under its feet the very foundation on which the bourgeoisie produces and appropriates products. What the bourgeoisie therefore produces, above all, are its own grave-diggers. Its fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally inevitable.


The USSR called themselves socialist - not communist - for a reason.

>> How is that possibly failure?

Loose language on my part.

The initial plan failed. The initial plan was to destabilize the regime in the 1910-20's enough for a pretext to invade, occupy, dismember, etc. They invaded but with insufficient forces for the situation, perhaps because they were too stretched in too many places and didn't expect the Bolsheviks to succeed so well.

The second plan took more than another 10 years to develop. They backed a strongman in Germany, weakened rules against German disarmament (undermining France -- at the time a first-rate colonial power with far-flung possessions), and succeeded in pitting the two against each other. It seems they snatched success from the jaws of defeat.

Had their first plan succeeded, would they have done as well, worse or better without having to execute the second plan? Hard for a dumbass like me to tell. But, they did take over France's possession's and now much of the former USSR's anyway. So, I'm inclined to agree with you.

The news about Turkey disowning Al Qaeda and Al Nusra to die in the de-escalation zones should be seen in light of the prior meeting between Erdogan and Putin where the normalisation process between the two countries was finally pronounced complete.
The Duran analysis is still vague on those groups that have agreed to the initiative and those that have not etc.

Anyone noticed the Kirdish calls for land stretching to the Med and threatenting to take the Kurdish fight to Iran!! (a trade off?)
And Turkey is now extending its border wall to cover the Iranian border - both signs that there is a lot of unfinished business.

And I read, albeit in an AKP rag, a few days ago that DAESH are preparing to attack Kirkuk (!!!???) - if true, doing Erdogan's bidding to enthrone the 'right' kurds and eliminate the rest, no doubt.

Have been checking this site for the last week for some analysis, but nothing. So, I guess everything is as clear as mud.

"Everyone but the US and Israeli regimes are onboard with the Russian plan."
I had read that the Trump team were appraised of the de-escalation zones and supported then.

"There is going to be some messyness putting the Kerds in their place"
Fully agree - defining their position in Syria is necessary. But what of Iraqi Kurds. A referendum is coming and Barzani is going to be given hard hitting support. An independent Kurdish state could well be a threat to Iran - its interests in Iraq qnd maybe even domestically; Turkey will try to enthrone Barzani and then by helping him fight 'kurdish terrorism' in the area it will continue to destroy the 'wrong' kurds.

Agree that Mercouris doesn't include the info you cite, but it was written 3 days ago and much water has flowed since, and its inclusion wasn't what he set out to do. What appears to be happening now is establishing more facts on the ground by Syria and allies as a several pronged offensive headed East has launched.

It will be interesting to see what occurs at UNSC today as Russia has introduced the de-escalation plan for its blessing.

If your laptop/desktop runs on an Intel chip with the vPro sign, then you might want to turn AMT off in the BIOS as it's backdoor created by Intel that operates on a low level of your computer. That means that Intel (and thus NSA/CIA/... doubt there are many persons of interest dwelling in these forums) can remotely log on to your computer as long as it's hooked on to the internet, and perform ANYTHING they want. That means extracting everything, even keys from your RAM memory that are used to encrypt your HD but also planting files on your computer like highly illicit pornography for example. This can all be done remotely, traceless and without you ever knowing and is thus the perfect crime.

This AMT backdoor that is normally supposed to be used by network admins to manage networks is embedded in most intel chips produced after 2010 and recently it was revealed that it contains security flaws whereby hackers could also exploit this backdoor and Intel was forced to release a patch. What's worse is that some BIOS' don't even allow shutting down AMT. The only way I see to stop it then is to block ports 16992 and 16993 but that would be in the router sitting between your PC and your ISP. Your PC itself is chanceless as remote packets reach AMT in the hardware before they reach the OS. Obviously virus scanners are totally out of the picture.

I don't agree at all. His game changes according to factors often beyond his control, he is opportunist maybe, and he plays the sides off against each other, but that is not the same as claiming that he 'changes his mind like a girl'.

Found an english language article on the Kurds taking the war to Iran point I mentioned above. Wishful thinking in my opinion, but maybe it does herald the future use of Kurds as an instrument of regime change / management by the US/ Germany. Interesting read whatever conclusions you draw ...

Good points, but as one of the 'clueless people' you mention, I'm still a bit cautious.
Something has changed in Syria/ Iraq, it's hard to overlook that fact.

But why?

What you observe are symptoms, and unless we know their underlying cause, we can't tell whether they'll be short-lived or long-term 'sustainable'. The US & allies have in the past undermined all efforts to end the war, instead escalating time and again in one way or the other.

To prevent this from happening again, there would have to be some sort of pressure/ threat/ leverage tying Washington's hands. Such pressure is usually financial in nature, i.e. China engineering the next crash...of which I see no signs, other than a falling oil price?

In any case, Moscow can be pleased that this happens just ahead of the big V-Day parade. Let's see which countries participate this year: India? Libya? Philippines? Turkey?

nb, the Kurds seem to be playing quite a good double game.

Erdogan Regime Establishes a Military Base in Qatar, Opposition Objects


Israeli website Rotter.net revealed that Turkey and Qatar signed an agreement to establishment a Turkish military base in Qatar,

600 Turkish soldiers and officers are said to be transferred to Qatar in the first phase.

According to an agreement, the base which is financed solely by Qatar, will be managed by two colonels, one Qatari and one Turkish.


... i still have to wonder if turkey does not have its eyes on the prize in riyadh.

there's the black cross, the green cross, the white cross, the double cross, the criss cross, and the lost cross ... but one is supposed to keep goin' on and carrying the cross on his shoulder ... because you ain't s'posed to let no cross cross you up ... you s'posed to let a cross help you get across ... and if you let a cross help you get across you won't be crossed up, but you'll be on the cross because you done got across on the cross ... so if you remember this you won't get lost on the cross while you done tryin' to get across on the cross. i think erdogan is trying to follow that philosophy with respect to the double cross. and when he crosses us up we just gotta deal with it. and leave it alone. Recep Tayyip has yet to master circular breathing, can't yet blow no stritch.

Depends on what you mean by 'traditional' tories I guess.

If they are still Empire/ exceptionalist minded, they have to follow Mackinder's script and prevent any power or alliance from controlling Eurasia - or die trying. From such a perspective, Brexit is a logical step before either provoking a major war or destroying Europe (scorched earth).
Is this hegemonic in today's tories? I don't know. But I'm sure such strategies still exist among the (extreme) right in Britain and the US, just as the extreme right in Russia, Germany or China has far-reaching plans on how to achieve 'global domination'.

Didn't pay much attention to the mentioning of Russia in the Grauniad article, but it's not the main point there anyway, is it? On the other hand, Russian right-wingers would love to see nationalist infighting among western states, of course...so it would make sense for them to support such movements in Europe and the US, wouldn't it?

Don't know if this information's been posted yet, but I was made aware of the existence of a UN Holocaust File whose total amount of information wasn't released until last month against the demands of the Outlaw US Empire and its mother UK. An article by Finian Cunningham alerted me to its existence, http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/05/04/deep-history-us-britain-never-ending-cold-war-russia.html I then googled UN Holocaust File and got a trove of hits, the lead being a Guardian article headlined "Opening of UN files on Holocaust will 'rewrite chapters of history'," https://www.theguardian.com/law/2017/apr/18/opening-un-holocaust-files-archive-war-crimes-commission

Given what little I've gleaned they most certainly will. Plus, they'll vindicate several writers whose theses have always purported the Nazi role being first and foremost the destruction of the USSR. Combined with Fritz Fischer's discoveries while doing research for his Germany's Aims in the First World War that the Kaiser saw the coming war as one of racial survival between the Slav and Teuton, the files release provide proof that the US/UK aim was to make certain the Teutons won by eliminating the Slavs; and when that failed, they took the job directly via the Cold War. That similar levels of racist Russophobia continue without any overt cause, it seems clear the US/UK Deep State players still desire their long-sought outcome. The Files demand a complete re-examination of inter-war events given the new information they reveal.

The Guardian article contains some excellent info, particularly the link to the main archive website which will be searchable. Also, it announces Dan Plesch was given extraordinary access to the archive which sources his Human Rights After Hitler: The Lost History of Prosecuting Axis War Crimes, which provides even more relevance to the discussion of Japanese War Crimes that were never prosecuted. I find it extremely ironic that Neocon Samantha Power was involved in the archive's release, a nugget provided by the article.

Very bizarre. Trump fired FBI Director Comey even though in the dismissal letter he went out of his way to write While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau, Trump wrote.

Okay, so he wants us to believe this firing is because Comey was not very nice bringing up Hillary's emails during the Campaign, when during the Campaign he couldn't praise Comey enough for doing just that.

Ha! that's funny. Let me get this straight: Trump: this is not because of what you're doing to me; this is about what you did to Hillary.

How about this: I'm bringing up the fact that you assured me three times that you're not investigating me, because I want to assure people that this has nothing to do with that; I want people to know that I'm not a vindictive guy; I'm just a guy who needs to do the right thing.

Trump speak or more like Swampland salesman. The fall authored by Trump himself is coming as I predicted all along.

Look Trump's behaviour has nothing to do with Russia. Take Russia out of the equation. Trump is all about Trump. What Trump did today demonstrates that he will do anything to save his ass. There is no one he won't throw under the bus, betray or stab in the back. Now I'm not trying to defend Comey; I could care less. What I find disturbing here is abusing power for personal interest/benefit and gain. This is what I find most reprehensible in Trump aside from his manipulation of the truth via deception.

Even Edward Snowden who was a target of Coney condemned this and I know he condemns it for the same reason I do.

Set aside politics: every American should condemn such political interference in the Bureau's work," Snowden tweeted.

This FBI Director has sought for years to jail me on account of my political activities. If I can oppose his firing, so can you.

Forgot the link: Sarkozy's Strategy of Violence


The connection with Israel is paramount in Sarkozy’s project. Although no official pronouncements have been made, a highly respected weekly newspaper, Le Canard enchaîné, has reported rumors from the ranks of French internal security forces that the Israeli national police, the 26,000-member-strong Mishtara, is now the model, given its fusion of population control, policing powers, intelligence activities and counter-terrorism operations.

Already in 2005, after days of insurrection in some French suburbs, Israeli experts in urban counter-guerilla operations reportedly visited Paris, presumably at the behest of the French authorities (Sarkozy was then Minister of the Interior). In June 2010, it was reported that officers of the Israeli army participated in combat simulations in France and that their French counterparts would soon go to Israel “for combat training in inhabited zones”.

Israeli technology is another dimension of this collaboration, although it is not yet considered that the French population is ready to accept some of the more interesting innovations. For example, the Shofar (Hebrew for a trumpet made of a ram’s horn), an Israeli “sound cannon” that emits a noise comparable to a fighter jet flying directly over your head (145 decibels) was rejected. Colonel Didier Quenelle of the Gendarmerie in the Saint Astier (Dordogne) training center explained to Hacène Belmessous in January 2010 (cited in Belmessous’ book Opération Banlieues, 2010) that he refused to test the device. However, Quenelle’s new superiors have not ruled it out. “We concluded that many demonstrators of different ages would be injured and that the capacity of our fellow citizens to accept such a tool seems problematical,” it was said in an official report, which nevertheless went on to call for tests. “Rubber bullets”, on the other hand, have been accepted.

I recommend everybody should see an excellent movie by Ken Loach "The Wind That Shakes the Barley". Usually I plan for all the flick I see, but that was that rare occasion when I started watching it by accident and could not stop.

It's a fascinating, yet gruesome, portrayal of how the global evil cabal of the Brutish Empire, "Perfidious Albion" if you will, operates in occupied territories.

It has had no match in scope and in depth around the world in its cruelty, brutality, savagery. When military occupation is no longer sustainable because of the defiance or resistance from the population, The Largest Empire In the History of the World resorts to the trick when it apparently withdraws, but in reality establishes an rule of the local oligarchy supporting its interests. That's what the Commonwealth of Nations has been about. Thank to that strategy the Brutish Empire of satanists and pedophiles can implement its overarching imperial policy of "divide et impera" through proxies (tentacles, outposts) such as USA, Canada, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Barbaria, Qatar, UAE, Japan, Azarbaijan, South Sudan, Gibraltar, Cyprus, Northern Ireland, Baltic States, Middle/Eastern Europe ... Thus creating in strategic geopolitical places choking points on global commerce, migration, energy allowing that anti-human thalassocracy to maintain its world hegemony.

Since 2012 the colonies have started to loosening that cruel grip - USA, now Turkey, Poland - switching to the lighter side of the forming Eurasian block connected via New Silk Roads.

The Brutish Empire has been desperately trying to stop this process and destroy the competition via permanent terrorist threat and destabilization in the way - Syria, Ukraine, soon the Baltics. Started to send large amounts of armaments and troops to the occupied colonies under various pretexts - Estonia, Saudia.

The masks comes off and recent threats from that sick fuck MoD Fallon against Russia aren't so veiled any more. The same with recent threats from that odious whore Theresa May against continental Europe, i.e. the EU,

"if the Brexit is not done our way, we will not cooperate wrt to terrorism" = "we will unleash Daesh et cohortes on you".

I wonder why those stupid fucking people that elected that disgraceful Bilderberg and Rothshild clown Macaron has not yet realized this ?!

But the most grave threat coming from the global evil cabal of City of London are the bioweapons since they hve no time to prepare the nuclear strike against Russia.

Watch carefully and prepare yourself for the news of coming many new, strange outbreaks in the EU and the USA carried by the "refugees" send by the cabal.

This is my last call for the good people in the UK, to appeal to their conscience, reason, morality, to stand up against that cruel tyranny of London. If you not oppose them in the coming elections nobody will be sorry for you when you you will be oblitarated by those Tsar bombs that Russia has started to deploy recently in their Tupolev bombers sqaudrons around the country.

No Indon generals and their fukus mentors ever stand trial in the dock for that genocide of the century against ethnic Chinese in 1965 !
These guys belong to the teflon club remember,
nuthin sticks !

FFW May/2017,
According to veteran reporter Allan Nairm who specialise in Indonesia,
Trumps buddies in Jakarta are plotting to oust prez Joko, who's ethnic Chinese. Joko's buddy the former Jakarta governor Ashok is already in jail for some trumped up charges about 'blasphemy' against the Koran'.
Ashok is also an ethnic Chinese.

The key coup plotter is none other than sinophobe gen Prabowo, indicted by an official inquiry for his role in the 1998 attacks on chinese girls.

For some reason best known to themselves, fukus seem to loathe any Chinese enclave much as nature abhors vaccum.
Gen Prabowo is Washington's go to man in indon whenever uncle sham fancies some de-sinicisation project [2]

Many people are getting jittery, Is another genocide in the works ?

Prabowo's job may be to rid Indonesia of Chinese influence.

Sometimes you have to wonder where the bullshit ends.
US controlled media/MSM publishing pure propaganda.
The likes of Sputnik publishing unicorn farts filled with glitter.
almarsdanews publishing this shit ..
https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/map-syrian-jordanian-border-shows-latest-us-military-build/

b debunked the almarsdanews piece over at SST and when I looked up the location on wikimapia the pics of the Jordanian military junkyard matched the pics in almarsdanews of the US military build up

All I can say is keep up the good work b.

Is it only my impression that any false flags or military offensives since the "Arab Spring" have been conducted over weekends?

I'm a bit suspicious that the Borg is planning something big for the coming 3 days, maybe in Kiev in Banderaland during the Eurovision contest, or something threatening the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the phenomenon in Fatima?

Also a thread devoted to the UK (s)election should be created. This is something I cannot understand: supposedly, the consensus in the lame-scream and alt media is that the Brexit is the result of popular vote against the corrupt establishment. So how on Earth is that possible that this old, disgusting, perfidious rag Theresa May with that sick fuck Fallon and their cronies is polling now at around 70% ? Where the fuck did all those anti-establishment millions of votes go ?!!! Am I supposed to believe that the Brexit supporters also support one of the most disgraceful, compromised, hideous, anti-human, murderous bunch of criminals called the UK government? Are you fucking kidding me ?! Possible explanations:

1) Brexiters did not vote anti-establishment but anti-Europe, in favor of much more increased lethal Brutish imperialism, but without the constraints that the EU has been imposing, the voters want more war, more invasions, more state-sponsored terrorism

2) the polls are rigged

3) millions of people in the UK has been turned into mindless zombies since Brexit vote through some unknown exotic technology

@Willy2 | May 11, 2017 4:44:04 That article seems to blame everybody for bad things except for the current Brutish government, that is just nice and dandy, filled with good intentions, a steadfast for rule of law, higher values, world peace, and unicorns. As opposed to those threatening military men in Trump's administration... Boo-hoo, scary!

Voting for May's party is not an option if the Britons do not want their country to be nuked by the Russians and Chinese with the rest of the world cheering with a sign of relief. Here are some interesting analyses:

A little rant.
The last few years I have imported a little tooling from China to resell on the internet which keeps me in smokes and beer. I found the Chinese people I deal with to be far better than arrogant yanks who I previously dealt with. As the US pivot on China ramped up, it became more difficult in small ways to import from China in a small way. One of the problems of being a vassal state in the US empire...
Makes me more pissed off with the US and our puppet leaders.

mmm... Trump nationalist seems better than Clinton or Obama Globalist for the world, but making Obama's excepional - ly arrogant nation great again? I think I prefer the Chinese.

Thanks to Saudi Bombardment, Yemen is now Facing an Outbreak of Cholera ... if there's any one group on earth that deserves a taste of its own 'medicine' it's the criminal saudi royal regime.

well, there's a line of them i suppose, headed by the usa and israel, as always.

@Peter AU #89 tell me about it Batteries I just cannot get batteries from china any more. Still I hear the situation in Oz may be worse, I buy a handful of reconditioned Galaxy s7's now and again from China and I just cannot get one to my daughter in Oz, Apparently Oz customs just won't let mobile phones in unless they are from Samsung themselves. This is protectionism by stealth - a way to keep monopolies unchallenged & no one hardly seems to notice or care. amerika is expanding its ban on laptops as onboard luggage to include some euro destination/sources and altho the euro courts have said it is illogical there is no serious opposition. We appear to be surrounded by those asleep at the wheel.

@92 pp

yeah. that's good to read. i was thinking more like riyahd, where the devils themselves live.

@95 anon

yeah, only the brits or the yanks would have the nerve to mouth that kind of crap. the rest ... mutti, for instance ... said she deplored the the saudi war against the yemenis ... but germany will still sell the saudis more weapons.

i wonder which is more despicable, really? the brits' in-your-face denial of reality ... hey, no crimes here!

or the germans admitting the crimes and deploring them, but admitting, too, that they just can't stop taking the money.

they're both despicable. as are the french and the rest of nato. academic question.

How long before west, media will blame "russian hackers" for the ransomware? Perhaps they have already done that?

@98, Media will have to be clever because, apparently, Russian computers were the most affected.
