The New York Times walks back a false propaganda claim it made against Venezuela: Footage Contradicts U.S. Claim That Maduro Burned Aid Convoy.  Unmentioned in the Times piece is that this was already know and reported on February 24. The NYT may believe that this very late confession makes its other propaganda claims more believable. It doesn't.

Anyone remember Mullah Omar, the deceased leader of the Taliban? The U.S. military and intelligence services claimed over and over again that he was hiding in Pakistan. Bette Dam finds (pdf) that he wasn't:

After 2001, Mullah Omar never stepped foot in Pakistan, instead opting to hide in his native land—and for eight years, lived just a few miles from a major U.S. Forward Operating Base that housed thousands of soldiers.

In late 2001, after the U.S. invasion, Mullah Omar resigned as leader of the Taliban and the movement officially surrendered to Hamid Karzai who promised them reconciliation. The U.S. did not like that and launched a vengeful campaign against all former Taliban member. Eighteen years later the U.S. is suing for peace.

Mullah Omar lived quietly, meditated and studied religious text. Allah remarked on his death:

On April 23, 2013, Mullah Omar passed away. That day, Jabbar Omari told me, the hot, dry lands of southern Afghanistan experienced something he’d never seen before: a hail storm. I assumed it was hagiographic bluster, but later I found a U.S. army publication referring to that day: “More than 80 Task Force Falcon helicopters were damaged when a sudden unprecedented hailstorm hit Kandahar Airfield April 23, where nearly half of the brigade’s helicopters were parked.”

On the NYT story, you have to love how transparent the propaganda is, and yet they (Bolton, Pompeo, Rubio) don't care whatsoever. Oh, and not one critical word about people throwing Molotov cocktails. Like that's a perfectly normal, non-violent means of protest.

Since the last "open thread" I've spent a little time trying to learn something about "5G" technology. One thing I found out was that the 5G radiation doesn't have much range in the atmosphere, and as the frequency in use gets higher that range gets shorter. I suppose this is why they don't use 5G wavelengths for radar.

Whenever a person is walking around today, he or she is moving through a thin 'soup' of radiation from AM/FM radio stations and cell phone towers and all the other devices in service. The new 5G towers are going to use a process already seen in long-range ABM radars called beamforming. Another term is "phased array" antennas. A specialized and very capable computer will determine where you and your cell phone are, and send as many individual "beams" as necessary to get you connected to the system. So you're no longer moving through a 'fog' of radiation, but instead are more like a WW2 bomber over nighttime Germany caught in the beams of as many searchlights as can be pointed at you by the defenders on the ground.


The link speaks of the microwave exposure of the hand holding the cell phone, but I think I'd be even more worried about my eyes and the soft tissues in my neck. After all, the phone isn't going to be any kind of a perfect "bulls eye" from the beams bouncing off buildings and the general landscape. I doubt if I'd want to be standing among a crowd of 5G users in public places, either.

Hopefully I'm all wet about the perils of this new technology, for it's going to be darned near impossible to avoid exposure to the 5G beams zipping around everywhere in the near future.

The fact that Mullah Omar's death was suppressed for two years even from high-level official sources, indicates to me that the theory bin Laden died in 2001 is very plausible. We even have a similar progression of statements regarding their respective health, doubts of whether they were alive at the respective time, etc.

Of course, both terror leaders were kept "alive" for geopolitical reasons. Once ISIS (and later Russia/China) took over as a serious threat in the corporate media narrative, they no longer had to cling to those old phantoms.

Posted by: David | Mar 10 2019 18:18 utc | 9

The story on Omar is astonishing, but to me not surprising. If the US spends billions on finding one guy, and at the end of the day, he is literally just down the road, it shows how incompetent and useless our intelligence gathering has become. That 93% of all personnel that are employed by the CIA are paper pushers in Langley and just 7% are in the field, of which I read sometime ago, has a ring of truth to me. Stupidity has a firm grip on our rulers, and they are getting, not only us but many others, killed for absolutely no reason. And the dunces called the American voter, keep re-electing them. It leaves me breathless.

Speaking of anti-semitism, what do Dershowitz, Netanyahoo, Adelson and Trump all have in common? Here's the thing (if any of the stated things in the article are true): Bibi's up for re-election on the 9th, and not looking too well, it seems. Elijah Magnier has sounded alarm bells, too: Things might be getting quite interesting in the next weeks. Oh, we can add Corbyn
with the anti-semitism accusations against him and the Brexit mess into the mix, too, with the big vote on May's deal on Tuesday. It's small wonder why there is so much talk of anti-semitism these days, given the stellar cast of characters involved.

The anti-semistism charges against Corbyn only seem potentially damaging because they occur in the echo chamber of a media system unanimously organised against him and the anti-imperialism that he supports.
There are signs-one of which is the desperation of the media in making ever more extreme charges- that the campaign has had very little effect. Labour Party membership is increasing steadily, the largest political party in Europe gets larger every week, making the party financially independent (it relies much less now than it ever has in the past on Union financing) and organisationally stronger, as thousands of energetic, intelligent youthful people volunteer to work for it.
Part of the antisemitism campaign has consisted of MPs going out on a limb and, with maximum publicity, resigning from the party, thus saving the members the messy job of expelling them or refusing to select them for re-election. At the same time local party organisations, long strongholds of municipal and regional bosses and Blairite politics, are being re-captured by the membership. Both Scotland and Wales, for example, are now led by anti-imperialist socialists. Two years ago they were centres of anti-Corbyn organising.
These things are important because this is a demonstration of the way that a media system, by consistently promoting the interests of the 'elites' loses its credibility. Most of those who read and contribute to this site were once regular and comnplacent consumers of the MSM. We used if not to accept uncritically then at least to take as probably true the 'news' on public broadcasters and quality broadsheets. Now we realise that they are utterly unreliable retailers of propaganda.
The good news is that this is becoming a majority attitude- we are on the way to a situation, already achieved in France I suspect, in which nothing from the state is taken on trust. And people are making up their own minds after comparing information, thru places such as this one, with each other.
To get back to Corbyn, I find it hard to believe that he will not only win the next general election but in doing so lead a new sort of party, backed by a powerful and massive popular movement, full of committed, if often mild reforming, socialists into Parliament.
If that happens it will only be fair if the Israeli government be asked to take a bow for 'going over the top' to such an extent that it is going to be difficult to convince anyone that Corbyn is other than spotlessly clear, politically and highly principled.

Are Chinese and Russian ruling classes just another group of capitalist oligarchs that we (mere mortals) should fear and loath?

donkeytale (and maybe a few others) seem to think so. After all, Russia and China are both capitalist now and each has a very wealthy group of oligarchs. donkeytale writes:

... I fail to invest global capitalism with any [make-believe] sheen of a nationalistic morality.

Capitalism is evil. In all its national currency manifestations.

So why is there a conflict between the Empire of capitalists and these two capitalist nations? Why don't they get on with it? Why are we not already not enslaved by the New World Order of oligarchic control?

There is something beyond capitalism that makes Russia and China reluctant to join the Empire's NWO: a deep distrust. While Western propaganda depicts the West as a welcoming democratic meritocracy, anyone that scratches the surface finds that the reality is very different.

>> The Empire provides overwhelming political and military support for autocrats and rascists;
Examples: apartheid Israel; wealthy white Venezuelans; takfiri proxy armies; Ukrainian Nazis; dictators; etc..

>> Democratic safeguards (even Constitutional 'checks and balances') no longer meaningfully constrain Western elites.
Our democracy is a largely a mirage. In practice, Western society operates as a plutocracy that is administered by the Deep State.

If this were not enough, it's clear by now that the allure of mutually-beneficial joint capitalist conspiracy against ordinary people is not enough to entice Russian and Chinese ruling classes into a submissive position. This may stem from the great suffering they experienced during WWII when the fought off a more virulent form of fascism.

Lastly, the reluctance of Russia and China to be 'assimilated' into the Borg Empire is actually likely to be beneficial for ordinary people as it may cause our ruling elites to treat us better - just as they did in the first Cold War.

So no, I don't think we need to fear and loath the oligarchs of Russia and China. Instead, we need to fear the callousness of our own elites much more as it is their deep wish to have total control that is most dangerous to us.

US Presses India to Stop Buying Oil from Venezuela

Jeremy Corbyn is a dead man walking. His failure to stand by his allies (from Ken LIvingstone to the more recent Chris Williamson) within the Labour Party as they have been successfully picked off, victims of anti-semetic smear campaigns, has seriously undermined his leadership and increasingly isolated him within his own party. Corbyn's policy of accommodation and appeasement is obviously failing and has only emboldened his attackers. From his failure to geld the Blairites within his party by expelling its most vocal zionist mouthpieces (the odious Margaret Hodge and Joan Ryan being prime examples) to Labour's adoption of IHRA's redefinition of anti-semetism to include anti-zionism, Corbyn's appeasement policy has been an unmitigated disaster, leaving him effectively neutered in the face of this unremitting onslaught as his poll numbers continue to drop. Even George Galloway, a staunch Corbyn supporter, is despairing of this state of affairs.

There are similarities between Western oligarchs and 'other' oligarchs. It would seem that all oligarchs invest in nominally pro-govt think tanks. One significant difference between Western and 'other' think tanks is that the highest profile Western variety are known for producing unhinged and aggressive pro-war threats, narratives and talking points via the revolving door of Neocon-ism.

Since neither Russia nor China's leaders habitually swagger around threatening, insulting and lying about other countries, one may speculate that Neocons are considered to be a superfluous luxury in Cn & Ru. It's probably relevant that AmeriKKKa, in particular/ uniquely, elevates intellectual pygmies/ certfiable morons to the post if Prez; wheras Ru & Cn install leaders capable of coherent thought and the natural ability to distinguish Good ideas from Lousy, Stupid, Evil ideas, without help from a semi-anonymous Peanut Gallery.

Politics in the West is such an effing insult to voters that I'm sure our pollies convene regular meetings just Roll On The Floor Laughing Their Arses Off. At us.

@ Ghost Ship #15

... Hauwei's 5G technology is a secret multistatic radar system to monitor the movement of aircraft equipped with stealth technology and mustn't be installed in NATO countries

When the same radiation comes from a WESTERN company's equipment it won't be a problem! Sounds like something they could sell to the Orange POTUS.

Have you seen reports that stealth airplanes can be detected by the current 4G phone systems?

Mobile telephone masts 'can detect stealth bombers'

I'm really worried about the way the US is putting all of its eggs into the "stealth" basket. Even if they were totally undetectable (which they're not!) the things have to land somewhere. Obviously an enemy would try to smash them then. But as the 1999 F-117 shootdown over Serbia demonstrated, they can be seen by radar. Airborne sensors can detect heat from their jet engines. And for all I know, what you wrote isn't really a joke. Everybody writes about future "swarms" of offensive drone aircraft. I've seen nothing about doing the same thing in the defensive situations. The 5G equipment is necessarily small and low-powered, so wouldn't it easily fit aboard long-duration drones orbiting a high value target as part of the defense system there? Water seems to be the "kryptonite" at 5G frequencies, but usually atmospheric water vapor goes down at higher altitudes.

One of the drawbacks of the US military for at least the past hundred years is a stout belief they're smarter than anybody else. This kind of arrogance led to the defeat of the Germans and Japanese in WW2, and how on earth does it do us any good? Don't know if you've noticed the numbers of dueling editorials about the prospective production of the F-15x. Lockheed is desperately trying to convince everybody we need to increase production of their dreadful F-35s. This despite new issues being uncovered constantly.

Concerning the differences between oligarchies.

Being rich does not make you safe, and clearly, you may loose more than the poor fellah. There are two main routes to achieve that safety:

1. Controlling a military force so powerful that even utter stupidity cannot undermine you too much. Once your state is so powerful, it suffices to maximize benefits for yourself, your company etc. in part by supporting the most pliable individuals to "positions of power", be it executive, legislative or whatever.

1b. Latching your state to the one with military force so powerful.... think about EU, most of Latin America etc.

2. The oligarchy of type 1/b does not like you. At this point, it really matters if your state is rule stupidly or with at least a mediocre level of competence.

Jaackrabbit - Thanks for the shout out. Welcome to the donkeyhole. Now duck into your rabbithole because you are about to get splattered. Lol. And no, as you cherry pick pieces of my argument and reply with non-sequitors and strawmen I will not further respond. This is my all-encompassing argument. For now. I know you hate lengthy replies too!!

You misunderstand or maybe choose to ignore the differing roles of nationalism, national politics, and the class interests of individual elites within the global capitalist system. I suspect you disregard the easy utility of international financial structures, especially the sheer amount of private held capital traversing over, under, around and through borders without regard to any patriotic or national priorities whatsoever because this damages your argument of "national oligarchs" pitted against other national oligarchs.

China very willingly buys US debt in order to subsidise the US consumer's creditworthiness at very low interest rates. In turn the insanely materialistic US consumer continues to happily buy tons of ever more sophisticated cheap Chinese merch while the staggering amount of total US consumer debt continually metastasizes through the roof (mixed metaphor alert).

And a stunning amount of this capital moves secretly through opaque, quasi-legal and outright illegal processes ("money laundering") to evade taxes and invest preferred assets backed by the safest reserve currencies internationally at optimal rates of return. These are games played by oligarchs of all nations with impunity to the detriment of the non-capital owners of all nations.

Here is where Russian oligarchical collusion with Trumpworld meet head on and have for decades. Here is where Trump and Putin are on the friendliest terms imaginable. Here is where Xi and Trump will come to an easy accommodation on trade sooner rather than later. They back the same system because the system works for them and their main constituencies.

I say the Russian and Chinese people need to fight back against their own oligarchs because these are their elites directly oppressing them just as we non-capital owning westerners need to push back against our own .01%. Clearly, this is well past due. Why are we even arguing who has the better elites on a national level, or wtf? Beside the point JR. Well beside the point.

How much Russian capital has exited Russia and ended up in European and US real estate assets as example, when this treasure could be invested beneficially in developing Mother Russia's own economy? Why, because the Russian oligarch will receive a much safer, and greater tax-free ROI elsewhere, that's why.

Likewise, we need to fight back against our own oligarchs who hoard the majority of the incredible amount of wealth this country generates without any flowing down to more than 90% of the population (the Deplorables) who live better today than our parents only because the trinkets we buy at low interest rates are better quality.

If we could somehow align class interests across borders and fight together with our non-capitalist brothers/sisters in a global united front against the oligarchs in all countries that would be optimal in terms of class struggle, IMHO.

But we have been brainwashed and I believe too many here (sadly) agree with the lie of the poor, darkskinned foreign national as the enemy of the good American and European [caucasian] bloke.

The global financial system exists to further enrich global oligarchs at expense of the non-owners of capital. Nationalism exists to obfuscate the reality of the oppression of non-owners of capital by the owners of capital and sidetrack our discontment with the status quo into promoting nothing burgers such as border walls, Brexits, racial divisions, etc.

Nations exist for many reasons of course but foremost of which is to protect the economic interests of those who most benefit from the prevailing socioeconomic system. When the government is controlled by, say, multinational corporate special interest groups then the government responds mostly to the interests of its multinational corporations.

The owners of those multinationals (shareholders) are themselves multinational. That is, they reside in many nations. And they move around freely wherever a private jet can land or a yacht can set anchor.

They exist in a closed society to which we will never be allowed to enter.

Except as butlers, drivers, gardeners, of course.

Piotr - IMHO, the world is safer today than it was in 1961, 1913 and 1938 combined.

Sure, there exists today international rivalries, spheres of influence, proxy wars etc.

There always have been and always will be.

However, the elites today are more bound together in their class interests than tied to financially to the nationalism of yesteryear by virtue of the hyperfast international markets which never close and are instantaneously liquid. Nothing remotely like these existed even in the 1980s. The elites are no longer simply owners of companies based in their own nations employing their own people who require a government and military to protect their assets. Even large parts of the supply chains of defense industries rely on foreign made cosmponents and technologies.

Those nationalist owners still exist of course but the very, very wealthy have ownership interests scattered around the globe in conjunction with each other more than any interest in their wage slaves also scattered around the globe.

“So why is there a conflict between the Empire of capitalists and these two capitalist nations? Why don't they get on with it? Why are we not already not enslaved by the New World Order of oligarchic control?”

Good questions. Short answer “Fake Wrestling”.

It’s just a matter of timing. Both Russia and China have populations increasingly agitated by growing/sustained wealth inequality. They need to keep their populations under control. Conflict with the US provides Xi and Putin with excuses and a unifying nationalist support. Both countries, like the US and Eu/UK are moving ahead full speed with implementing the technological tools for ultimate technocratic authoritarian control.

Once 5G and the IoT surveillance and control concepts are fully developed globally, and information on the internet is completely sanitized, along with a cashless digital transactional system the elites will pull back the curtain and announce the NWO that is basically Global Governance and had been agreed to 30 years ago when Soviet and Chinese elites decided to go capitalists and become as rich as western elites on the road to partnership in the future Global Government

Trump plays a key role in all this because in order for the rest of the worlds population to accept this they must be assured the US elites are not in control. The US is being painted as the Evil Empire, with capitalism and democracy discredited, and the US will be forced to pay reparations under a modern version of the Versailles treaty. Of course, the US elites, like the Nazi and Japanese elites will mostly be free to resume their activities, so this is a ruse. The US people will be sacrificed and its national assets globalized and shared among the rest of the 95%. The US peoples sacrifice will allow global support for this New New World Order resulting from the defeat of the Evil Empires National Democratic Capitalism by the Green Globalists who saved the planet from Global Warming caused by the Evil Empires greedy overconsumption

The New New World Order will not be democratic, it will not be capitalist either. The elites rule, and those who are ruled work. In return the ruled are fed and allowed to live within their allotted carbon credits. There are no freedoms, just rules and responsibilities. Technology gives the elites the ultimate control. 1984 on steroids. There will be far fewer people given robotics and AI will eliminate the need of much labor, which will allow for less consumption of resources.

" From his failure to geld the Blairites within his party by expelling its most vocal zionist mouthpieces (the odious Margaret Hodge and Joan Ryan being prime examples..."
Corbyn is watching while these people commit political suicide. just as ten of them did last week.
You have to bear in mind that there are constitutional procedures around matters such as discipline, expulsions, re-selection. Corbyn cannot 'defend' Williamson by stopping constitutional procedures in their track or interfering in the discipline process. He is acting democratically and constitutionally.
As to the idea that he is losing support, there is little evidence that this is the case and, as I reported, the party membership is growing.
Those who criticise Corbyn for not acting like a left wing Blair are forgetting what makes him so popular.
Chris Williamson is not going to lose the 'whip' or get expelled. There is no evidence against him, with the exception of his foolish apology which suggests that there could be.
The bottom line, as Cook recognises, is this: the Labour Party is moving to an unequivocal pro-Palestine position. And it is doing so in the only bullet proof way, not by issuing top down edicts or imposing a policy on the 'leader knows best' principle but by heeding resolutions passed by the constituency parties and conferences, enunciating policy.
Did you miss the scene-a sea of Palestinian flags- at the Liverpool Conference last year: those flags came from the people, the delegates and the militants in the constituencies.

How do US courts value lives. It seems to depend on "who did it". In the case of Syria, the sum is a very large one.

U.S. Court Finds Syria Responsible for Killing American Journalist Marie Colvin

A federal judge in Washington, D.C. has ordered the Syrian government to pay $302 million in damages for the murder of journalist Marie Colvin in a 2012 artillery strike. The decision, issued on Wednesday, marks the first time in the seven-year conflict that a court has declared Syrian forces loyal to the government of President Bashar al-Assad responsible for deliberately attacking civilians.

Then there is the case of Iran's destruction of the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001.

US judge: Iran must pay $6bn to victims of 9/11 attacks

Iran is ordered to pay "$12,500,000 per spouse, $8,500,000 per parent, $8,500,000 per child, and $4,250,000 per sibling" to the families and estates of the deceased, court filings say.

A 4.96 annual interest rate will also be applied to the amount, starting from September 11, 2001 to the date of the judgement.

I'm mentioning this because of a story I saw on a blog operated by the son of America's Most Famous Jewish Orthodox Author. The fellow was gloating about the apartheid Jewish state "...cutting terror salaries from Palestinian Authority taxes..."

The guy's smug satisfaction gave me an idea. What If the US of A chose a number somewhere between the "life value" of Marie Colvin and the values assigned to the 9/11 victims, and subtracted the money from the 'allowance" given to the apartheid Jewish state. Every time they murder a Palestinian, they lose XX million dollars. Naturally the same thing would apply to times Palestinians murder one of their occupiers.

Or is it "anti-semitic" to even compare God's Most Favorite Thieves and Murderers with the subhuman creatures they're trampling underfoot?

IF this article has validity, there was absolutely no play on MSM anywhere.

"A group of progressive lawmakers including Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ro Khanna, Elizabeth Warren, and many others are signing onto a pledge saying that they will not support the endless “forever wars” that the U.S. loves to engage in. This is a big leap forward, and it shows that the military industrial complex might struggle for relevance as the country continues to move to the left. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this."

George Galloway and Steve Topple of the Canary posted this video on the ongoing transatlantic attack campaign against the left wing, including Ilhan Omar, Jeremy Corbyn, and the Yellow Vests under the canard that they are anti-Semitic. This has now reached the level of the transnational RussiaGate hysteria to the point where it is obviously a coordinated smear by global corporate and political Establishment and ruling class people to muzzle the voice of a rising generation which is anti-capitalist and anti-war.

@4 Adam Curtis is always great, I personally preferred The Trap and his short film on Nixon, but Hypernormalisation is arguably the most powerful and illustrative film of our times. It would be perfect if it weren't for the Russia segment.

The Jewish Labour Movement was revived in 2015 to battle Jeremy Corbyn, The Electronic Intifada can reveal.

A right-wing organization with intimate ties to the Israeli embassy, the Jewish Labour Movement claims to have been affiliated to Labour for a century.

But a transcript of an undercover recording, obtained by The Electronic Intifada, casts doubt on this narrative.

The 2015 plan to reconstitute the Jewish Labour Movement came against the backdrop of what Newmark described as “the rise of Jeremy Corbyn” and “Bernie Sanders in the states.”

Corbyn, a longtime supporter of Palestinian rights, was first elected Labour leader in September 2015.

You probably think I'm going to disagree. But much of what you say is right. The problem is, you're dancing around the main issue: why is there such discord between the West and Russia-China? You ask that we not believe the tension we see with our own eyes... because capital flows. But the complexity of global asset holdings is proof only of how close the Empire came to achieving their NWO goals.

And that's the problem with the donkeyhole, it's just a special kind of memory-hole. It hits some important points (oligarchs are bad and exploit their own people first) but asks that we ignore the Cold War elephant in the room as well as the absence of an explanation of: why THERE MUST BE a uni-polar world? Sadly, tale-chasers caught in the donkeyhole lose the presence of mind necessary to formulate such questions.

Kissinger warned in 2014 that his cherished 'world order' could break into spheres of interest. Cry me a river Dr. K! Russia and China's experience in WWII makes them wary of the fascist-racist nature of the Empire as it is today. (Hasn't Putin essentially said the same?) We are seeing the Empire adjusting to that painful reality in ways that are both practical/predictable and frightening. For example:

> fixing the 2016 Presidential election;

> neoMcCarthyism;

> the plan to charge a 'tax' for US troop presence which can be used to pay for German LNG imports, Ukrainian arms imports, replacing Iranian oil imports; etc.

In short, they are doubling-down because all they know is the self-licking ice-cream cone of the control-paranoia DOOM LOOP.

IMO there should be more focus on the DOOM LOOP insanity. Even oligarchs can see the danger that such thinking poses.

It is no coincidence that Israel is smearing and targeting members of the Democratic Party and the Labour Party at the same time. What greater threat can Israel suffer than for members of these parties to use their influence to change their Parties' platform on Israel to one that no longer gives Israel a free pass on its crimes and then follows that with concrete measures? Israel, and its expansive Lobby are using nuance to sharpen and weaponize the anti-Semitism tool.

However, if I were a member of Labour or the Democratic Party and I wanted to attract attention to Israel's crimes that are never condemned, I too might throw in what could be interpreted as a trope just to stir hysteria that I had to resort to anti-Semitism to bring attention to the fact that they, Jews, are responsible for the crimes of Zionism carried out with impunity for way too long. i.e. through major funding and by insisting on blind and unquestioned allegiance to Israel. Also, it's a good way to smoke out the Lobby's enhanced predictable ADL strategy to squash dissent against Israel policy. Ilhan Omar is very intelligent and brave to stir the hornets' nest. But how else can you attack the problem if you don't drive them out of their apathy or expose and shame it?

Russia and China clearly have no fundamental opposition to the rise of a global police state. Their elites seem to be positioning for a better slice of the pie. These secondary powers also seem to play a useful role by providing controlled opposition and testing grounds. The hegemonic elites don't prefer to trial run everything in the US. This universal camera surveillance was pushed to the point of saturation in Britain, not the US. Social scoring as a system of control was perfected and rolled out in China first. Right now Russia seems to be playing a particularly useful role as a bete noire which is being used to justify many evils in the US, from drastically increased censorship to heightened militarization.

The situation in Venezuela, which at first seemed to portend the utter victory of fascist forces in Latin America,seems now to promise the possibility of a counter-fascist wave that could even be global,because the hegemon has allowed the mask of kindness to slip to such an extent that the depraved monster within seems to have become more visible to many. Globally there seems to be the possibility of a wave of enlightened horror and newfound courage. There is a surprising glimmer of hope for humanity.

Despite the claims that Antisemitism is widespread in the Labour party, I am probably guilty of underestimating it by claiming that because only 12 members have been expelled out of a total membership of 550,000 which equals just .002% that the claim that it is widespread is false. Chris Williamson was suspended simply for casting doubt on the inflated claims. It seems we are both Antisemitism deniers.

@14 m

Netanyahu is in a precarious position and may indeed try to grandstand militarily to avoid losing the election and then, as Magnier puts it in the latest article you cite, "going to jail."

Alastair Crooke unpacks this more broadly in his latest piece, and shows how Russia and the regional axis around Syria are weaving a "containment" architecture to forestall such grandstanding, by either Israel or the US:

Will Trump’s Hawks Dare to Risk Israel? - Crooke

I must say I'm relieved to read Crooke's piece. Magnier has been alarming - and may well be right - in his recent speculations on how far Netanyahu may go in his election desperation. The commenter Lone Wolf added a welcome and dampening counter-view of the risks and likelihoods, in his comment to Magnier's first such speculation, ten days ago: Can Netanyahu risk a “battle of missiles” with Syria? - Magnier.

And now Crooke elaborates on the risk-management scheme of deterrence being put in place by the allies:

What is being constructed here is a complex, differentiated deterrence, with ‘constructive ambivalence’ at all levels. At one level, Russia deploys full ambiguity over the rules of engagement for its S300s in Syria. At another level, Syria maintains some undefined ambiguity (contingent on the degree of Israeli escalation) over the geographic siting of its response (Golan only; or the extent of Israel); and Iran and Hizbullah maintain ambiguity over their possible engagement too (by saying their advisors can be everywhere in Syria).

Currently, neither the Israeli military command (without whose approval Netanyahu cannot do much) nor the US (whose military command have no desire for escalation) can realistically assess the risks of undue action in the theater.

While the adventurist politicians are blinded by hubris, the risk-averse generals are being deliberately blinded by their opponents. Let us hope this works to ensure safety.

Well, discord exists for sure. Whether this indicates a "new cold war" is in the eye of the beholder. And maybe we are in the opening stages of what you suggest. But the discord will have to grow abundantly from where it is today before I buy into a "new cold war", which means to me advancing mobilisation on both sides of the discord stopping just short of "hot war," with both sides ready to rumble at the next prevarication. This mostly media shorthand and scare talk.

Personally, I think trade-related discord certainly exists but other than rhetorical battles mostly instigated by Trump for domestic consumption in deplorable-land, I also see relatively close cooperation between the US, Israel, Turkey and Russia in Syria.

In the "old cold war" it would have been inconceivable for Russia/China and the US to coordinate military activities in Vietnam or the Korea.

In support of Jackrabbit's theory, let me use a well worn analogy. If you are a hammer, every problem tends to look like a nail. So, if in the analogy the world's oligarchs can be considered to be hammers, the danger is that they'll go around nailing down every problem they are given the power to nail down. Okay, so many people have the idea we must therefore eliminate all the hammers. But hey, I actually can't find my own hammer, and I need it because my house is falling apart. The solution is: hang onto your hammer but don't let it go around bashing in the windows and clobbering the chihuahua! Give it a good talking to and lock your tool box when you put it away! I control my hammer; I say where I want it to fall and when. I need it, and if it wants to have fun banging things, I say what and when!

Mullah Omar fled on a moped. I recall some evocative pix, sadly couldn’t find one now via a cursory search.

Haji Gulalai, the head of intelligence in Kandahar, said that Omar had fled on a motorcycle from a village near Baghran in Helmand province, where he was said to have been cornered for more than two days.

Telegraph, Jan. 2002

V. Low tech and not being connected to the internet seems to work quite well. :)

Man hunts for ‘leaders’ to butcher them (e.g. Omar, Osama ..- heads of state other story -) is calculated to appeal to mopes in the USA, on the model of Hollowood and scary tales for children, chopping off the head of the snake is a breath-taking victory, etc. It is probably (imho) not an endeavour that those on the ground pursue with zealous ardour, only token moves and dubious reports need be made, while graft and inflows can be upped (see Garcia @10.)

Omar was a important figure, but by 2001, nope..? Osama was the poster boy ‘terrorist’, handsome and exotic, show-cased on TV (practically all MSM vid) before 9/11: the evil mastermind whom Obama finally pretended to kill off.

Crooke's latest article is interesting piecing together the moves to block and contain the Trump US. Patick Armstrong also has a piece up at Strategic Culture "Trump and the Gordian Knot, Year Two" on the Trump admin alienating so called US 'allies'. b's recent piece on the Trump admin looking to charge countries a fee for the US occupations is very much a part of that.
With sanctions and threat of sanctions against anyone and everyone, Trump's US is burning not only whatever soft power (covert arm twisting) the US may have had, but also the US petro-dollar.
Crooke has outlined the moves made to block US initiating a war against Iran. Venezuela - a large media build up for the 23rd but nothing happened.
Even the crazies lie bolton seem to realise they need to be able to take the American people to war with something a little better than tales of weapons of mass destruction.
Syria 2013 - Putin took away the neo-con excuse (chemical weapons) to take the US into overt war with Syria.
The Trump admin is still busy burning US bridges behind them, but they are now being blocked from moving to what they want to be a new era of US world dominance.
There is a religious element to the Trump admin, judeo-christion zionists and jewish zionists. Rubio, though not a Trump appointee is crazy enough to feel at home there, tweeting quotes from the bible interspersed with threats against Venezuela and pictures of Gaddafi.
Earlier it was difficult to see the benefits of countries absorbing punishment from the US without responding in kind, but it is easier to see now that the US needs its targets to respond to be able to take the US people to war. Goebbels "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it" seems to have run its course.
Putin when asked about Gorbachev and Yeltsin and the collapse of the Soviet Union replies "Everyone one knew that the Soviet Union had to change but nobody knew how to do it". US is at, or close to that point now. The difference is, the US will go to war if it gets the chance rather than giving up its aspirations of world dominance peacefully.

Syria may also be ready to Stand Up & Fight… ?

By World Israel News Staff
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad reportedly warned Kristin Lund, head of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), that “Syria will attack Israel if it does not leave the Golan Heights.”
“We will not hesitate to confront Israel,” Mekdad said. “We are also not scared away by its [Israel’s] supporters who are helping to perpetuate the occupation of the Golan,” he added.
* * *
The message has been interpreted as a sign that Syria is concerned that the U.S. will recognize Israel’s sovereignty on the Golan Heights.
Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), and Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wisconsin) introduced legislation last week urging the United States to officially recognize Israel’s sovereignty. The IDF captured the territory in the 1967 war. In 1981, the Knesset passed legislation applying Israeli law on the Golan.

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad submitted an official warning to the head of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) Kristin Lund, in what seemed to be an attempt to prevent official US recognition of Israeli sovereignty in the Golan.

Blue and White party politicians Gabi Ashkenazi, Yair Lapid, Benny Gantz and Moshe Ya'alon visited the Golan Heights on Monday and vowed never to give it up.

"We will increase the numbers of residents in the Golan, sending a resounding message to all - we will never relinquish the Golan Heights," Gantz said.

"We will enlist the support of the US and the international community to promote Israel's interests on our northern border," he added.

"We have a historical right to it and it is a strategic asset," Lapid said, adding that "we will never give up the Golan Heights. It is ours and it will stay ours."

Discord with Russia/China is very understandable:
1) MIC and "war socialism": Defense is an enormous part of the US Economy. The F35 procurement strategy is only the most blatant; it is very clear that a significant cutback in defense spending by the US would have serious negative economic consequences even disregarding defense company profits.
2) "Reactive intelligence" as opposed to intelligence for a purpose. The US method of gathering intel - by the middle agency, primarily but to some degree by the others as well - has morphed into a reactive as opposed to a mission driven goal. The problem with this approach is that it easily slides into paranoia and fog of war even beyond the normal fog of war - regardless of the intentions of those managing it. The sad reality is that the agencies themselves very clearly don't know where all the spending goes and what everyone is doing, much less outsiders.
3) Locus of power and profit: US inequality in the form of an oligarchy has become ever worse. In the past, the government, military and private (multiple) oligopolies were separate. Now they're increasingly just one. And in the presence of a single oligopoly over US society, the only possible enemy has to be external.

As for 5G: I've posted elsewhere just how little energy is actually involved in cell tower signals.
Before becoming panicked, it is useful to understand just why so little an amount of energy - both absolute and per "wave" or "particle" could possibly matter.
For 4G: LTE cell tower broadcast power: 20 watts per radio, 3KW to 6KW per tower
Average cell tower coverage area in a dense urban area: 1/4 square mile = 160000 square meters (note this distance is up to 2 miles or more in rural settings, or 8 times more area)
Energy of cell signal: 0.0375 watts per square meter (6000/160000)
So in other words, sunlight is over 36000 times stronger than a cell signal (1367/0.0375)
The actual energy is far lower on average, although higher during transmit.
The very simple question to ask is: what is the mechanism by which less than 1 watt (much less) of radio signal can affect anything? Specifically ionize, denature or otherwise cause a chemical effect which in turn could cause a health problem.

Every night I sincerely thank the awesome g*d who didn't pick me or anyone I love that our government is back cranking out wisdom and light after the terrifying "shutdown”.

Yes, I'm sure glad our wise and noble government, the mighty protector of Israel and globalist (((plutocrats))), is back up and running. It's doing a lot of good, let me tell you.

News article: “The House passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred on Thursday following days of debate over comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., that some lawmakers said were anti-Semitic.”

If you still think we're going to vote our way out of this catastrophe, let this be the final straw. A Somalian refused to bow down to the true rulers of our dead country, even after they yanked the kosher choke-chain on her.

Instead, she kept on naming the obvious, something the useful idiot White Loser Party would profusely apologize for doing, even if they only did it in a dream.

Reeling from the shocking hate truth spewed by a Muslim from Somalia we chose the only sensible course of action: attacking the legacy White population.

News article: “The vote was 427 in favor, with 23 against and one member, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, voting "present." The 23 lawmakers who opposed the resolution were all Republicans, many of whom wanted a measure that focused solely on anti-Semitism.”

comment: We also have 23 Real Conservatives who didn't think this bullsh*t favored the poisonous mushroom enough.

After all, what can be done about the special and unique suffering of a people who control the money, the government, the media, Hollywood, sports, big tech and so on but are otherwise powerless and unfairly victimized by evil White "racists" who disguise themselves as Somalis.

“The very simple question to ask is: what is the mechanism by which less than 1 watt (much less) of radio signal can affect anything? “

From a thermal effect viewpoint you are correct. However many studies have shown these waves can cause adverse biological effects. The safety standards in effect only consider thermal effects, and even these are not being adequately enforced.

Juliania @ 54 and anyone else who is interested:

A former work colleague of mine from years ago, Clint Burnette, has written a screenplay "Enemies Within: When Israel Declared War on the United States of America" of the Israeli air and naval attack on the USS Liberty in international waters near Egypt in June 1967, during the Six Day War. The screenplay is available for purchase from Amazon.

As the blurb states, Burnette interviewed a number of survivors in writing his screenplay to get the details of the attack down in a way that demonstrates the deliberate nature of the attack on the USS Liberty. Over 170 men were injured in the attack and some 34 were killed. Most of those killed died during the torpedo attack by Israeli naval boats that came after the air attack.

Both those who survived the attack and those who did not are surely also worthy of recognition as victims of Israel's aggression against Palestinians and neighbouring countries.

Global Timeseditorial about Outlaw US Empire's tizzie-fit over Italy's endorsement of BRI minces no words:

"Washington seems to be inextricably bogged down in its sense of superiority. Such a sense will not fade away anytime soon, as it is the result of years-long accumulation of strength and being spoiled. Europe should understand that if it continues to spoil the US, this does no good to either Europe or the US. [My Emphasis]

"Over the past year, relations between China and Western countries have experienced twists and turns. The US has been engaged in obstructing China from all aspects, be it trade or technology, which has also dealt a heavy blow to China-Europe ties.

"Many EU members are US allies and have traditional defense ties and common security interests with the US. However, such alliances were formed during the Cold War and do not totally conform to the demands of today's Europe and the world.

"Europe should not let the US infringe upon its China policies. If Europe follows the US suit and stands with the US to contain China, it is giving away its position as an important pillar of the world, which does not fit Europe's interests and goes against the trend of European integration."

Pepe Escobar weighs-in on the issue and describes how the EU is already tied into BRI. This article and video provides an excellent example of BRI integration. (Yes, there're more than a few surprises.) The engineering alone--100KM underwater railroad tunnel!--is spectacular.

And with the release of Trump's proposed budget, the contrast between Rising China and Sinking USA couldn't be more stark.

Rather than going to the expense of designing an entirely new fuselage and normal length landing gear for its larger and much more powerful 737 MAX engines Boeing stuck with the now ancient 737 fuselage design that sits only 17 inches from the ground – necessitating changes to the positioning of the engines on the wing, which together with the vast increase in power, created aerodynamic instability in the design that Boeing tried to correct with software, while not alerting pilots to the changes.

Through the 1980s and early 1990s Boeing executives had largely resisted pressure from Wall Street to cut staff numbers, move plant to non-union states and outsource. The 777 was the last real Boeing, though significant outsourcing did take place – but under the strict control and guidance of Boeing engineers. After the “reverse” takeover of MacDonnell Douglas in 1997 the MDD neoliberal culture swamped Boeing and its HQ was moved from the firm’s home near Seattle to Chicago so executives could hobnob with speculators. Wall Street had taken down another giant.

@ Jen #70

Regarding the USS Liberty, here is a graphic which is an accurate indication of how the apartheid Jewish state feels about that one.,fl_lossy/t_Article2016_ControlFaceDetect/436872

I can't verify the claim, but I've read in more than one place of a naval museum over that way displaying a trophy from the Liberty. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if it's true.

With bank interest rates so low a person is tempted to dabble in stock, and I'm afraid I was looking over Boeing when the first 737-MAX went down. After getting the details, I told the stockbroker No Deal, and was surprised she agreed with me. Naked Capitalism has a post on the subject today.

Yes, interesting article. Going to be a great series when complete. Many thanks.

Imagine an oligarch made rich by teaming initially with Soros to crash the British Pound, then later repeating the same thing on Mexico, causing economic crises throughout Latin America, and now owning, through various tactics including suspicious deaths, a vast territory in Patagonia, to which estate some 8,000 to 10,000 soldiers of Israel's IDF, among others, come yearly to take a little holiday.

A compelling story of greed, ambition and Zionist future real estate plans. That link again:

@ Grieved with the link to the rape of Patagonia

I read it and hope others do as well.

The solution is to take away global private finance so the world cannot be gamed by anyone. Going after ANY individuals is what they want you to do because it is a losing proposition and never addresses the underlying structural issue of private/public finance.

With private finance gone the "wealth" of the oligarchs drys up and blows away in one or two generations and their ill gotten properties like Patagonia are taken away and folks prosecuted.....
It is called return to The Rule Of Law and it is coming.

if one reads the talmud and the encyclopedia judaica it states very clearly that irania and the the arabs are gypsy and that the children of isreal are the only true semite.
it is this hatred and anti semenism and jealousy that many countries have purged the innocent children of isreal out and away killed them poisoned them.

That is a lovely little clip. I really like Khamenei. I like to hear his voice and to read his words. He has much wisdom, and that clear view, undistracted and unforgetting, that Nasrallah also shares. I actually finally got to read just last night the piece you posted for the "Second Phase of the Revolution". Wonderful stuff.

I had read Khamenei's statement before about women and what the west has done to them, or with them perhaps. I find it compelling.

I confess that I don't know how to take "sides" in such a drawing of lines, but I respect people and cultures who know where they stand and receive psychological balance from this.

And as I watch the utter degradation of western culture, decaying practically before our eyes, I concede that the Supreme Leader has a good point. In fact, all of those cultures and people who never yielded to the liberalization of position of the last century seem now in their conservatism to have a point. I suppose the balance tipped when liberal become licentious.

The pendulum always swings both ways. There is a middle place that is silent, and forgiving of all things.

So the US is withdrawing their remaining staff from their embassy in Venezuela - Sputnik.
Spells "war", doesn't it? Get any potential hostages out, so you have a free hand to start a proper war. That's basically what Pompous Pompeo's saying with his tweet: "the presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy." Poor country, raped live on stage with the whole world just watching.

Military Moves into Environmental Management in South America

Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela and others increasing the militarization of extraction and ecological destruction. They're still in the mode of being imperial flunkeys on the global commodity exchange, but soon it'll be direct resource wars over water, agricultural Lebensraum and other elite industrial needs. Of course none of this is for the people.

Peter AU @ 56 (and others.)

I didn’t see Nasrallah’s latest mentioned, did I miss the ref? A. Crooke (“Will the US risk Isr?” 11 March, see Peter's post) refers to him. Nasrallah clearly exposes, point by point, what is going on re. Syria, Turkey (role of US, Russia) etc.

He describes the disarray of KSA (+ UAE etc.) very well, also not too bad on Israel, good on Trump (imho..)

About Venezuela.

I listened to Alexander Mercouris while chopping the veggies. (Posted March 12. The Duran.) He says, the USA will most likely double down on Venezuela, and won’t give up, it might even go to ‘invasion.’ This is contrary to my view (as I have posted here) so it was interesting to me. Worth a listen.

Occasionally, I take a trip in my Wayback Machine that reminds me of what life was like not all too long ago. The Seashell on the Mountaintop: How Nicolaus Steno Solved an Ancient Mystery and Created a Science of the Earth delves into Steno's life and times--mid 1650s Copenhagen: 30 Year's War, Plague and the 4 different fathers it caused, War with Sweden, competition between religions and budding science, passed away before 50 years of age--an ordinary yet amazing story of a man who would eventually become a Saint. Given his life's circumstances, it's a wonder he survived. And given life's circumstances, it's almost fantastical that any critical thinking and writing was done at all, that universities even existed. It's excellent to be reminded how sordid ordinary life was, particularly in cities as they were places to be feared with so many hidden sources of death and the related morality that developed.

IMO, it's helpful to remind oneself about the evolution of the human condition and how that's affected the status of men and women. Simone de Beauvoir in The Second Sex posited the notion that women were/are "Slaves to the species," which contributed mightily to how men were able to subordinate/dominate women. It's been 70 years since its publication but little has changed over those years. Indeed, most of today's self-declared feminists haven't read it, which inhibits women's drive to gain parity with men. With medical & science advances, women no longer need to be reliant on men and could live without them completely since they'd no longer Slaves to the species. Something tells me the Deep State wouldn't like that to occur.

"With medical & science advances, women no longer need to be reliant on men and could live without them completely since they'd no longer Slaves to the species."

Mm hmm, just slaves to the technosphere, much better. And then, once the technosphere became sufficiently "advanced" and sentient (we're continuing with your techno-fantasy here; I see no advances whatsoever, when all is factored in) that it no longer needed such slaves, it would make the logical decision to exterminate the parasitic biological infestation, as forecast by various sci-fi writers. Exactly the end all techno-cultists fantasize.

Meanwhile the point is to do away with ALL slavery.

Russ @86--

Yes, point taken! That possibility was pointed out in an earlier discussion of that scenario several years ago. Did you ever read Asimov's Robot and Foundation scifi series? He only touches on the topic of total robot domination since he framed those stories within his 3 Laws of Robotics which require robots to protect humans. The Will Smith vehicle I, Robot is a compilation of several Asimov stories, one of which deals with a renegade robot the movie centers on. Of course, our world lacks the 3 Laws and such a development as you posited could occur. Asimov was amazing as he anticipated so much of our current and future world, which is to say that he discussed the issues related to AI and robotics long before they materialized.

Some are calling Russiagate a "conspiracy theory". I think that's an insult to conspiracy theorists. IMO Russiagate is more hoax than 'theory'. Anyone that understands that the 2016 US election was fixed by the Deep State (as I've been saying for 20 months) understands this.

Via the 2016 election and "Russiagate" which it laid the ground for, the Deep State got: a nationalist President to respond to the challenge of Russia-China alliance; neo-McCarthyism to dissuade critics; and settled scores with Assange and Flynn.

Dear coffee-shop feminists, if you are recommending us to read Simone de Beauvoir as an example of a “good” feminist, then you either haven’t read her yourselves and you’re mentioning her just to appear cultivated, or, on the contrary, you have read her and agree with what she stood for, in which case any normal non-feminist human being would have to be at the very least insane to believe that you have the best intentions in mind

granted the dude's a staunch non-feminist, but he makes a pretty solid case.

Hoax, wild goose chase, Sting, and numerous other adjectives were used, but I prefer Cover-up--a Cover-up many times the importance and gravity of Watergate that ought to have destroyed the Democrat Party, indicted a former POTUS, Attorney General, Secretary of State, FBI Chief, and numerous other high ranking officials and civilians. That's how I see it. Oh, and I agree those promoting the hoax aren't conspiracy theorists--Con men and women is the more correct term, IMO.

Skimmed the beginning of the diatribe you linked to filled with ad hominin and straw man attacks attempting to smear the character without addressing the message. Ignored is the Existentialist POV de Beauvoir wrote from, and of course she's dead and cannot defend herself from the many slanders.

Judging by how, out of sheer stupidity of premise and design, robots have crashed two planes and (in the form of "self-driving cars") murdered several pedestrians, not to mention how much misery and death they've already caused through destroying jobs (that part goes precisely according to premise and design), we hardly need to wait for the de jure Skynet.

But that too inevitably would come, if it were actually physically possible to construct the kind of artificial intelligence the techno-wingnuts fantasize about. That's how we can say with assurance that all technocrats and their fanboys already have committed total genocide in their minds.

ad hominin[sic], straw man? perhaps you should have read the whole thing, including the rather extensive footnotes, before dredging up those two bland internetty diversions. aside from ms. Beauvoir's intellectual prowess, i think we can safely say that her character was pretty damn shabby. her sexual proclivities for and psychological manipulations of minors is well documented, as well as those of her partner in squalor, Jean-Paul Sartre.

Ignored is the Existentialist POV de Beauvoir wrote from, and of course she's dead and cannot defend herself from the many slanders

again, if you'd read the whole thing you'd know that there is some elaboration in regard to her POV, and the fact that she's not here to defend herself is irrelevant. her penchant for the debauchery of minors got her licence to teach in France revoked way back in 1943.

Genuine philosophers argue the essay's merits and don't engage in hit pieces like that one

mr. Vâlsan doesn't mention any of ms. Beauvoir's merits, other than the fact that she's mostly lauded in feminist and scholastic circles.

It's been 70 years since its publication but little has changed over those years

yeah, legacy existentialism, the exercising of free will in an hostile environment, more recently expressed by the likes of Jimmy Savile.

I suddenly realized that my comments @17 and @42 are incomplete without mentioning the Western approach to the Russia-China challenge.

USA believes that Russia will ultimately be absorbed by the Empire or China as Russia lacks the capacity to stand on it's own (they used to deride Russia as: not a country but a 'gas station'). But Russia's hopes to straddle east and west and be a stabilizing influence on both.

The Western strategy seems to be to deny Russia that privileged 'straddle' position. Thus the West is hostile and has terminated most commercial activity. They seem to believe that Russia will ultimately choose the West once frictions with a growing China (which needs resources and space) become menacing. Along those lines, we can expect that Germany will not import gas from Russia via Nordstream until/unless Russia chooses the West.

As commercial ties between the West and Russia-China increasingly flow only through China, Russia will become more and more a satrap of China. Many Russians will grow to resent their subservience to China and the immense potential value of restoring commercial ties with the West will be an added incentive for these malcontents.

@donkeytale: what makes this a 'Cold War' instead of a 'Cold Shoulder' is the arms race that has developed.

And what makes this strategy risky is the unintended consequences of a Cold War mentality.

As for 5G: [very] little energy is actually involved in cell tower signals.
Before becoming panicked, it is useful to understand just why so little an amount of energy - both absolute and per "wave" or "particle" could possibly matter.
For 4G: LTE cell tower broadcast power: 20 watts per radio, 3KW to 6KW per tower
Average cell tower coverage area in a dense urban area: 1/4 square mile = 160000 square meters (note this distance is up to 2 miles or more in rural settings, or 8 times more area

Energy of cell signal: 0.0375 watts per square meter (6000/160000)
So in other words, sunlight is over 36000 times stronger than a cell signal (1367/0.0375)
The actual energy is far lower on average, although higher during transmit.

The very simple question to ask is: what is the mechanism by which less than 1 watt (much less) of radio signal can affect anything? Specifically ionize, denature or otherwise cause a chemical effect which in turn could cause a health problem.

Posted by: c1ue | Mar 11, 2019 3:21:29 PM | 64

consider for your answer this article from Business Wire ..Dr. Pall is an expert in how wireless radiation impacts the electrical systems in our bodies. He explains wireless emissions disrupt the electromagnetics of each cell, impacting one aspect of the cell, the voltage sensor, with a force over 7 million times compared other parts of the same cell. The FCC guidelines for microwave radiation consider only potential heating effects from the radiation, but not the electromagnetic effects, he says.
In a Letter to Legislators, Dr. Pall said, “It would be a disaster for the health of Californians to be exposed to the antennas envisioned in SB.649.” Pall says, “Thousands of published studies show biological and health effects from electromagnetic fields. We now know the mechanism that can explain these effects…The EMFs put forces on the voltage sensor that controls the VGCCs (Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels) of about 7.2 million times greater than the forces on other charged groups in our cells. This is why weak EMFs have such large biological effects on the cells of our bodies.”
CA Legislators Told of Biological & Health Risks from Pervasive 4G/5G Wireless Antennas Envisioned by SB.649


“The very simple question to ask is: what is the mechanism by which less than 1 watt (much less) of radio signal can affect anything? “ <= many studies have shown these waves can cause adverse biological effects. The safety standards in effect only consider thermal effects, and even these are not being adequately enforced. This appeal by EU scientists is worth reading Posted by: Pft | Mar 11, 2019 5:14:41 PM | 69

@ 69 Thanks for Your EU scientist link but like you say, it fails to state already known organ and bioprocess interactions with external energized frequencies. Frequencies are part of the between body part communications, frequencies management controls your entire physiology.
why did they not detail the known impacts of energized frequency on specific biological elements (eyes, ears, and heart there is a ribbon surrounded by efforts that are frequency driven) <=mechanism is at least the Calcium channel pathways ..
CaCAV plays a giant part in opening and closing channels that transport nutrients and signals between cell transport and between organelle transport within the cell. Membranes separate chemicals and something has to open to allow and shut to close transport through membranes. Some cells generate frequency domain as part of the physiology that depends on signals for proper operation. See Dr Pall's work , California Legislature 5g is 75000 times more intense than.. and I am told the California fire fighters have refused 5g at their fire station premise.
5g comes at the cost of no or faulty hearing, no or faulty seeing, no or faulty heart and muscle function and probably it eventually will show up in the reproduction processes, not to mention the oft used fund raiser of the cancer it might generate..
2g comes at a lesser cost than 5g.
see: Voltage-gated Cav1 channels in disorders of vision and hearing Mei-ling A. Joiner and Amy Lee PMCID: PMC4634632 NIHMSID: NIHMS730963 PMID: 25966695 and you will see just how a very low energy signal can wipe out body function.

Already the floors under my house shake and vibrate.. just as soon as certain frequency experiments were put into operation.

Posted by: the banned | Mar 11, 2019 3:11:49 PM | 62 mentions "psycho-electric weapons" and “EM effects on human”. Interesting read.

All of this suggest frequency coordination manages every aspect of body physiology and human consciousness.

Venezuela is not about oil. If Venezuela had good relations with Israel and bad relations with Iran, the US wouldn't care, it's because of Venezuela's political alliances, Iran, Russia, and China, that it is targeted

Venezuela is just another extension of endless Wars for Israel, bank bailouts, billions to Israel, Hate policy against Russia and Iran (enemies of Israel), US support of Zionist colonization of West Bank, (((SPLC))) and (((ADL))) censoring whites, Trump moving US embassy to Jerusalem, pardons or the failure to prosecute Wall St criminals, and so on....

Caitlin Johnstone defends Tulsi Gabbard but fails to notice that Gabbard carefully toes the line. My comment (left on Caitlin's site):

Beware the phony left that pretends to be principled but then, strangely, breaks those principles. Sanders the ‘sheepdog’ pulled punches and supported Hillary after she conspired against his Movement. Gabbard now offers the reassuring trope that USA is the ‘good guys’ along with the lie that Syria was a (rouge) CIA effort.

The CIA reports to the President. It was Obama that ignored ISIS (dismissing its importance by calling it Al Queda’s “JV team”). It was the Obama Administration that made a ‘wilful decision’ to support ISIS because they weren’t able to bomb Syria as planned.

When Gabbard tells America the truth about the White Helmets then I’ll believe that she’s not a controlled opposition plant like Sanders.

Wake up.
