The MoA Week In Review - OT 2019-29

Last week's posts at Moon of Alabama:

Other issues:

British media try to whitewash al-Qaeda in Syria, which controls Idleb governorate, into "moderate rebels".

  • BBC: Syria group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and al-Qaeda legacy

    HTS says: Democracy is blasphemy. Shia and Christians should be slaughtered. Jihad is a holy duty.
    al-Qaeda says: Democracy is blasphemy. Shia and Christians should be slaughtered. Jihad is a holy duty.
    BBC says: See, HTS is moderate and not at all like al-Qaeda.

  • Sky: Sky News crew deliberately targeted and fired at by Syrian regime forces

    The Sky crew collaborated with the U.S. Jihadi Bilal Abdul Kareem, who is allegedly on a drone kill list. BAK led them to the front line where HTS/al-Qaeda, a designated terrorist organization, at that time attacked the Syrian army. They film an al-Qaeda armored fighting vehicle that just got hit and is still burning. A shell comes down near them. They claim that they were "deliberately targeted". No shit! Here is a good thread that details the lunacy of such reporting.


On May 13 we covered the leaked OPCW engineering assessment which proves that the alleged gas attack in Douma in April 2018 was a false flag incident created by the Jihadis and their White Helmets propaganda arm. The mainstream media ignore the report the OPCW management tried to suppress. Only a few independent writers have since covered it. All make good points:


The Ukraine elected a new president. Now the NATO mouthpieces tell him to stay in line with their program - or else ... :

Mark Ames @MarkAmesExiled - 14:57 utc - 24 May 2019

This list of demands by western-funded Ukraine NGOs—threatening to overthrow Zelenskiy if he doesn't follow their demands—perfect example of Arundhati Roy's critique of "civil society" as an elite construct designed to subvert & control popular democracy:
- Joint statement by civil society representatives on the first political steps of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky

Sure enough one of the signatories is "NGO 'CentreUA'"—same NGO, funded by Omidyar, Soros, USAID, that organized Maidan revolution. That's like a gun pointed at Zelensky's head. Outrageous.
- Pierre Omidyar co-funded Ukraine revolution groups with US government, documents show

Zelensky was elected by 75% of Ukrainians. Who the fuck elected Pierre Omidyar, George Soros, USAID, National Endowment for Democracy — and their “civil society” satraps — to supersede Ukraine’s democracy?

Fear not. There are stronger powers involved:

max seddon @maxseddon - 7:53 utc - 26 May 2019

Ukraine’s western backers are worried notorious oligarch Igor Kolomoisky’s influence on new president Zelensky could torpedo its IMF support. Now Kolomoisky says Ukraine should just tell the IMF to screw itself and default. Our @FT interview: [paywalled]

Kolomoisky said the idea he owns Zelensky is so common it’s awkward. “People come to see me in Israel and say, 'Congrats! Well done!' I say, 'for what? My birthday's in February.' They say, 'Who needs a birthday when you've got a whole president!'"


Use as open thread ...

Joe Rogan had a very good chat with Tulsi Gabbard. This is how interviews should be done and the millions of views for each, show that people agree. Rogan goes against the mainstream conventional wisdom that people only want sound bites of info, when his videos are usually several hours long each.

Also this video by a 26 year old using facts, is taking aim Angela Merkels party. This video is almost an hour long and has over 11 million views. Wish that it could be made into an English version since it is now only in German.
( use private browsing to get around paywall )

Perhaps there is still hope with platforms like Youtube, until they are fully censored, which they are starting to do now with demonetizing videos.

Re the US-Iran bluster-fest.
Xymphora's May 26 post reproduces a critique of the pitfalls for an unlikely AmeriKKKan attack on Veneuela (S-300, S-400); or Iran (hasn't been disarmed, unlike Iraq & Libya).
I'm sort of hoping the Yanks will attack Iran because I'd like to see "Israel" reduced to rubble before I croak.

Concerning Ukraine, 100 years ago "representatives of the civil society" were called Freikorps, bloody riots, assassinations, that type of stuff. It reminds me a youtube video on English Civil War -- "But why was it civil? Kindly sir, can I kill you, please?"

Who starts, he looses.

US Army (and Marines?) already has trouble filling the position from voluntary enlistments. Unfortunately, unemployment is low, if they add a meat grinder to the job package it will not be nice at all. Navy bosses have other reasons for misgivings, "small missile boat gap". And I would not expect patriotic fervor if USA starts it. Actually, both sides can get bucketfuls of problems if they start armed hostilities.

I worry about Robert Fisk. Over a couple of years I worked my way through the 1300 pages of his great book, The Great War for Civilisation. Again and again and again he wrote of the lies told by Western powers and the eagerness of the media he worked for to adopt the lies.
And yet he still thinks Syria "might be" responsible for gas attacks. He is still wary of alternative media, and thinks they carry more lies.
I guess he is trying to remain usable as a proper journalist. Someone needs to remind him that The Independent stopped printing on paper just over 3 years ago - he is just working for an alternative newsite already.

On the Huawei thread's end, I provided a link to Xi's 2017 major policy speech (PDF) at the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China as it provides the official template for China's socioeconomic future planning. At 66 pages, it's not too terribly long and can easily be digested in a Sunday afternoon/evening. It's essential if you want to know China's plans.

I was wondering when the topic was gonna get around to Kolomoisky. All I know is that he’s Zelensky’s patron, an Ukrainian oligarch who owns the TV station Zelensky had his show on, and that they’re both jewish, like Poroshenko and Timoshenko, despite jews being only a small percentage of Ukrainians.

I wondered why, and commented on this on a minor discussion site, and my comment was deleted and I received a warning. Apparently such observations are anti-semitic ?

Posted by: Featherless | May 26 2019 19:31 utc | 11

I've not seen any credible source that Poroshenko is Jewish. This is the second time I've heard that rumor, but the first was from...let's say a Ukrainian nationalist source, if not openly Banderite.

Tymoshenko might be Jewish, but that's speculation.

The election of a Russian-speaking Jew is a safe sign that Maidan nationalism has lost its oomph.

@ Michael Droy | May 26, 2019 2:02:31 PM | 8 "I worry about Robert Fisk."

I generally respect Fisk, but over the years it's become more of a "curate's egg" appreciation.

BTW, I commend your actually reading Fisk's magnum opus; I enthusiastically purchased a copy years ago, and it's been gathering dust at the bottom of a stack of "must-read" books ever since.

Your comment rang a bell. I peeked into my own chaotic comments archive, and found references to Fisk articles from 2013 that express the same unwillingness to "excuse" Assad, i.e. asserting that despite cumulative countervailing and contrary evidence that Assad might have authorized chemical weapons attacks after all.

Fisk seems to be an authentic irascible curmudgeon, occasionally hobbled by compulsive crankiness. As you suggest, he's certainly a "trutherphobe".

When I skimmed through those 2013 comments, it reminded me of another worrisome tendency: Fisk is too ready to peremptorily label politicians and public figures he dislikes as "crackpots", "madmen", etc.

Surely madness and badness exist, and as a curmudgeon myself I believe in calling a spade a spade. But when this kind of facile exasperated name-calling creeps into one's professional writing, it amounts to idiosyncratic bias.

CESARE, indeed, I definitely should’ve said « I’d heard/read » instead of « I know » concerning that part of my statement !

Posted by: Featherless | May 26 2019 19:54 utc | 14

My understanding is that Poroshenko is his mothers maiden name, his fathers surname was Walzmann or something similar but he changed it. His father was the head of the Red Mafia in Odessa, the most corrupt city in the USSR. Yes Porky was born corrupt, a perfect tool for the Borg.

As an oligarch, I’m guessing Kolomoisky is an Atlanticist, as I believe they generally tend to be. Also, as a jew, I imagine he’ll be pro-US and Israel (etc.). Apart from that, I was wondering about his motivations, with the Zelensky presidency project. Anyone have any clues on that ?

My Sunday reading began with Federico Pieraccini's "Shielding the World From US Chaos Is No Easy Task" to which he linked in his conclusion to a fine, complex review of Hudson's 2nd edition of Superimperialism. Many have read me citing that book, so here's an opportunity to learn much more about it without having to read it through. In that review's intro is cited another of Hudson's papers that's seminal to understanding how the Outlaw US Empire functions, "Economic Meltdown: The 'Dollar Glut' is What Finances America’s Global Military Build-up". Finding the last essay wasn't easy as I thought it would be archieved at Project Censored since it won its 2008-09 award.

Many criticize Russian PM Medvedev, particularly The Saker, but he was essential in getting the move toward a Multipolar world moving when he served as Russia's President as this now historic essay proves. And to round-out my Sunday reading expedition, we have Hudson's examination of the Ukrainian Coup. I hope barflies will find the time to read some of these excellent essays or at least bookmark them for later!

I watched « Mission Impossible : Fallout » (2018) on netflix last night.
There were little bits I found technically interesting :

The bad guy (a terrorist with 3 nukes) looked a lot like Julian Assange (bearded),
had a name finishing with -uk (usually Ukrainian),
and he got his nukes all the way from EASTERN Russia.

Also, during the end/epilogue, seemingly out of the blue :

An item of importance that didn't get much press occurred at the Arctic Forum held in Finland earlier this month: Crazed Mike Pompeo called Canada's claims to sovereignty over the Northwest Passage "illegitimate" where much of it clearly passes through Canadian territory. Now, think about that while watching this excellent vid, "Icebreakers and the Arctic Power Play." Bluster and bombast or just Neocon insanity, or all three rolled into one?

This might seem self-evident, but at least it's now been said; now it just needs to be broadcast worldwide:

"There are more ex FBI & CIA operatives now shaping American news for mainstream outlets than there are at Langley and the J. Edgar Hoover Headquarters combined. The dominance of security state agents in US media coverage is remarkable. It used to be covert. Now it's not hidden:"

Paraphrasing what came next: Former FBI Special Agent will now inform NPR Weekend …

How does anyone really know the agent's genuinely "former"?

A similar point raised by this tweet:

"How can NBC and MSNBC possibly report credibly or fairly on allegations about John Brennan or the question of whether he and the CIA should be investigated when they hired Brennan and he's now the colleague, friend and 'expert' of those same NBC/MSNBC reporters?"

Spanish regional elections.

Iñigo Errejon after giving Podemos the backstabbing by transfugate to join the party which held the Major of Madrid, has achieved losing this city even to the loser of the last national elections, the PP. Who would be voting such a traitor?

The PSOE, having winned in Madrid Autonmous Community, can not govern since can not achieve majority by alliance with other leftist parties due the crash of the "new left".

I read time ago that Errejón had been in the US in a "gifted young program", and I am starting thinking he is "highly likely" the Trojan Horse of the CIA in the Spanish left.
In the European left it is the "Greens" of Soros.

In the end., the PSOE wins regional elections and European elections in Spain but loses Madrid Community.

Probably what's not so self-evident is that the FBI operatives (ex or not) at those MSM outlets are checking the CIA operatives' work to make it sure it fits in with the FBI agenda and the CIA operatives (ditto) are checking the FBI operatives' work to make sure ... you know the rest.

I'm concerned that Glenn Greenwald hasn't mentioned the operatives (ex or still current) from the NSA, the DIA and the other 13 intel agencies working in the same media outlets.

Is it up to Greenwald to perform that service? IMO, we should treat all BigLie Media with massive contempt and cynicism, and be as diligent as possible when exposed to its messages--become a massive skeptic as I wrote not too long ago. What I do wish Greenwald would do is liberate what remains of the Snowden archive and publish it to the world as he walks away from the criminally financed Intercept he's currently employed by.

On Memorial Day --

news report
Army and Air Force units from Germany take part in Memorial Day ceremony at the largest World War II cemetery in Europe to honor servicemembers' ultimate sacrifices.

We are more civilized now on sacrifices
wiki -- When the Aztecs sacrificed people to Huitzilopochtli (the god with warlike aspects) the victim would be placed on a sacrificial stone. The priest would then cut through the abdomen with an obsidian or flint blade. The heart would be torn out still beating and held towards the sky in honor to the Sun-God.

That's progress. What's constant is the need for sacrifice to sanctify the governors.

Macron Suffers Huge Blow With Defeat To Le Pen
by Tyler Durden
In what may be the biggest shock from today's European parliamentary elections, President Emmanuel Macron is set to suffer a blow with French voters set to hand a victory to Marine Le Pen’s National Rally, picking the vocal Eurosceptic and nationalist over the former Rothschild banker.

Posted by: Don Bacon | May 27 2019 1:06 utc | 42

It looks like shooting people in the face was not such a great campaign strategy. The Macronistas have been edged out in the EU election by the (renamed) FN/ Le Pen party. Before the vote, the Golden Boy was stressing the importance of this election. Now that they have lost (by just a few percentage points, but lost nonetheless), it’s being cast as a “European election” that has little to do with policy in France and he is going to continue on his oh-so-popular path.

George Galloway and Steve Bannon at the Eurasia Media Forum 2019 in Almaty. Video starts around 23:00. Panel takes about 2 hours, with questions in the end. Now one makes Bannon really, really furious. Poor guy dared to ask about Palestine.

Some here may be interested what the global/international national liberator Steve Bannon has to say. Galloway and especially Bannon dominate the scene. Date was May 25, he expected a big rise of the right in Europe, something he worked hard for over the last years. The Leni Riefenstahl of the Tea Party Movement did his very, very best to spread the nationalist perspective of Trump in Europe .... But apparently he has to continue do work towards his aim of re-nationalizing the Judeo-Christian West in its common fight against the Yellow Peril of old. Russia according to him is part of that Judeo-Christian West. The American Southern best example so far is Brazil.

On SST one occasionally the impression Bannon has been missed dearly in the States itself, but those ideologically can take care of themselves, while Europe has to be aligned under the present US perspective. ... We'll see.

@ karlof1 with the link to the 66 pages of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics....and others who should read his link at #11

I have copied out a bunch of excerpts to save/look into and am including them read the whole thing
The Three Stricts and Three Earnests are: to be strict with oneself in practicing self-cultivation, using power, and exercising self-discipline; and to be earnest in one’s thinking, work, and behavior

The Four Cardinal Principles are: keeping to the path of socialism, upholding the people’s democratic dictatorship, upholding the leadership of the Communist Party of China, and upholding Marxism-Leninism and Mao Zedong Thought.

A hundred years ago, the salvoes of the October Revolution brought
Marxism-Leninism to China. In the scientific truth of Marxism-Leninism, Chinese
progressives saw a solution to China’s problems. With the advent of modern times, Chinese society became embroiled in intense upheavals; this was a time of fierce
struggle as the Chinese people resisted feudal rule and foreign aggression. It was
in the midst of this, in 1921, as Marxism-Leninism was integrated with the Chinese
workers’ movement, that the Communist Party of China was born. From that
moment on, the Chinese people have had in the Party a backbone for their pursuit
of national independence and liberation, of a stronger and more prosperous
country, and of their own happiness; and the mindset of the Chinese people has
changed, from passivity to taking the initiative.

the Theory of Three Represents, and the Scientific Outlook on Development.

We will improve systems and mechanisms for stimulating consumer spending, and leverage the fundamental role of consumption in promoting economic growth. We will deepen reform of the investment and financing systems, and enable
investment to play a crucial role in improving the supply structure.

We will fully implement the Party’s basic policy on religious affairs, uphold
the principle that religions in China must be Chinese in orientation and provide
active guidance to religions so that they can adapt themselves to socialist society.

We will improve and strengthen our ideological and political work, and launch
initiatives to raise the public’s cultural-ethical standards. We will promote the
spirit of science and make scientific knowledge widely attainable; we will work to
see the back of outdated social mores and to promote good and up-to-date
practices and trends; and we will resist the corrosive influence of backward and
decadent culture. We will promote credibility building, institutionalize volunteer
services, and heighten people’s sense of social responsibility, awareness of rules, and sense of dedication

We must not forget that housing is for living in, not for speculation. With this
in mind, we will move faster to put in place a housing system that ensures supply
through multiple sources, provides housing support through multiple channels, and encourages both housing purchase and renting. This will make us better placed to meet the housing needs of all of our people.

Man and nature form a community of life; we, as human beings, must respect
nature, follow its ways, and protect it. Only by observing the laws of nature can
mankind avoid costly blunders in its exploitation. Any harm we inflict on nature
will eventually return to haunt us. This is a reality we have to face

The Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence are: mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual nonaggression, mutual noninterference in each other’s internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful coexistence.

The future of the world rests in the hands of the people of all countries; the
future of mankind hinges on the choices they make. We, the Chinese, are ready to
work with the people of all other countries to build a community with a shared
future for mankind and create a bright tomorrow for all of us

I've just finished reading Kees van dr Pijl's excellent book "Flight MH17, Ukraine and the New Cold War: Prism of Disaster". Igor Kolomoisksy features prominently as the most pro-Western and anti-Russian of Ukraine's oligarchs. Kolomoisky's Burisma gas company had gained control of the shale gas resources of the Donbass, fueling his fury at the at the anti-Maidan 'seperatists' who were living on top of his gas. If you recognise the name 'Burisma', it's probably because Hunter Biden sits on its board.

The book also examines the possibility that Kolomoisksy, through his Dnipro 1 battalion, was responsible for the downing of MH17. Putin's presidential Ilyushin was transiting through Ukrainian airspace at the same time on his return from a BRICS summit, and both aircraft are large jetliners painted red, white and blue (although Putin's plane had 4 engines while MH17 had only 2). Thought I'd take the chance to plug the book anyway, an extract is available on globalresearch

There's only one viable candidate to wash away the stain of Trump; Bernie Sanders. Everything else is more of the same or will end in failure to defeat Trump therefore the beginning of the catastrophic Trump 2nd term.

Trump is about to pardon war criminals. He removed some troops from the Middle East and now he signed off on a new deployment of troops. Trump is like the evil preacher in Night of the Hunter -- he gives a little to take alot; he's the ultimate conman.

Meanwhile he's off to Japan rubbing Xi's nose in the pomp, circumstance and imperial fakery he's being showered with in Japan.

Trump is a menace to this planet and his first term was just the intro. His second term will be titled IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE by all historians. His mission
Will be fully unleashed after 2020. We've only seen the tip of the iceberg.

Someone mentioned on some other website that Iranians have installed brand new S-400 across Iran last week. They didn't provide any reference or source.

Can someone confirm, did this really happened or is it just a made up story ?

Thank you.

USA Dept of Energy would sponsor (private market, huh!) new nuclear research projects.

What underlines those projects is:
* trend to walk away from physical experimentation and observation to mathematical-computer simulation
* trend to remove "excessive" safety margins in favor of enhancing commercial efficiency. Hello, Boeing?

EU election

If MSM wouldnt have initiated the climate hysteria the EU skeptics would have won even more seats.
While the MSM have fooled alot of people that climate is the biggest issue there is a tremendous more important issue and that is of immigration and the breaking up of states.
The socialists/liberals are still having alot of power but the more they push on with their policies, EU skeptics will probably win majority of seats in the parliament if not next but 2 elections ahead.

First and foremost immigration must be stopped, millions have arrived to europe and millions will arrive if it is not put an end to it - its not working. Because, either european states dissolve to nothing with unlimited immigration (the dream of liberals but also socialists) or the immigration is stopped and each nation could start growing again, as they should, according to their specific interests and not of the elite's (i.e. Merkel, Macron) ideologies and their obviously failure to govern western europe.
Just look at Macron, thinking hes the king of europe but are now beat by Le Pen, but Macron and others do not seems to understand what their politics lead to.

Quoth karlof1 @32: "How does anyone really know the agent's genuinely "former"?"

That is a trick question. There is no such thing as a "former" spook. Claiming to be a "former" intelligence asset is exactly like claiming to be a former murderer or former rapist. Being a spook isn't an activity that one can start and stop at will. It is an inescapable component of one's identity; an indelible stain on one's soul, if you will. It is not a job one can walk away from for good any more than being a hitman for the mob is.

I realize that karlof1's question was rhetorical, but I think this point needs to be stated explicitly. Ex: Anderson Cooper? Yeah, he's still CIA and has been all along.

When you make a pact with the devil it is permanent.

Immigration will not be stopped. It's not stoppable and is not caused solely by imperialist war but rather is also a symptom of the same global capitalist expansion which causes war. Someday our great grandkids will emigrate towards the Arctic Circle for the same reasons.

Welcome back. Let's be honest here. Nader is being as disengenuous as always. He has long hated Bill Clinton because he failed to recognise Nader's obvious brilliance and bring him appoint him to the cabinet lo! those many moons ago. For him, the root of all evil is always Bill Clinton, no matter what the problem. A trick he inherited from the far right and ran with it all the way to....irrelevancy.

The actual causes of Trump were several but I would finger the confluence of three main ones, necessarily in this order: 1. the destruction of the white working-to-lower-middle-class wrought by globalism 2. The racist reaction of this cohort (played like a Heifitz by the birther showboat Trump) to the usurpation of executive power for 8 years by a consummate globalist who is also guilty of being black 3. the final, complete and udder descent of the GOP into fascism.

OK, and 4. the worst presiditzial candidate in US herstory on teh Demotardic side whose only qualifications were her gender and her marriage.

Actually the "enemy" in this case is the liberals/socialists that now, because, its not anti immigrant parties that have ruled europe past 20 years and got it in to so many troubles.
Its not a matter of liking or disliking immigrants as you seems to frame it, but what is left with the welfare state, democracy and the nation itself if this keep on going. If you believe being against unlimted immigration is racist you have been really fooled by the media and parties now wrecking your nation. Where europeans always racists according you? After all, the immigration flow would never been accpted 20 years ago.

I am interested in hearing your view though. Should european nations accept unlimted immigrants?

lysias @68 sez: "People like Scott Ritter and John Kiriakou don't qualify as ex-spooks?"

No, and the same goes for Binney and Snowden and anyone else who has been an "asset".

Of course, that doesn't mean one should close one's ears to what they say. If a mafia hitman is willing to inform you of what is going on in his world do you refuse to listen? Of course not! They have information that you might have difficulty getting any other way, but it would be foolish to overlook where that information is coming from.

It is also useful to keep in mind some of the ways that organizations like the CIA (and also the mafia... they both use many of the same techniques) "recruit" assets and assure those assets are loyal. They don't always rely upon appeals to the patriotism of fools or hand over suitcases full of cash. They also make Bolton-esque threats to harm family members and loved ones. They dig up blackmail material (that's a major reason why they spy on and build files on as many people as possible) or just manufacture such blackmail material if they cannot find any. This last, by the way, is why so many CIA operators are gay: Being "outed" as gay used to have extremely dire consequences and was thus an easy way to guarantee loyalty. It was easy for CIA recruiters to figure it out in frat houses and elsewhere on college campuses when hunting for talent, and collecting a stock of incriminating videos in that environment has always been trivial to accomplish. Now that the seriousness of being outed as gay has faded it still remains simply as part of the internal culture of the organization.

There are other things that they do to assure loyalty as well that are really creepy and shocking, but I'll leave that to your own research. Just look into what any criminal gang does to bind new members and know that the CIA uses precisely the same techniques with their "assets".

Keep all of this in mind when you evaluate what a supposed "former" spook has to say. Are they open and repeatedly forthright about their relationship to the intelligence agency? Is what they are revealing truly critical of the agency or is it just a "limited hangout" intending to deceive you on an issue of greater significance? And, just as important, just because a "former" spook today earnestly wants to inform the public about the evils of the agency he foolishly signed a pact with doesn't mean that agency won't reel him in tomorrow and recycle him for disinformation.

You're using the exact same argument of the neofascists.

In the manifesto written by that guy from Christchurch, he's clear: the fault for Muslim immigration to Europe is not the interventionist wars in the ME, but because the "Muslim race" naturally reproduces more and at a faster rate than the "white race".

At the same time, he's nominally against war between races: he says the existence of other races is fine -- as long as they keep themselves in their respective nations.

But here's the catch: if the "Muslim race" naturally reproduces more and faster than the "white race", then it's just a matter of time before the Muslims start to expand territorially too. He's basically stating that the "Muslim race" is aggressive by definition, and a war between them and the "white race" is inevitable either way. Therefore, any form of war against the Muslims in their own territory is preemptive by definition. In other words, genocide with extra steps.

That's why the neofascists don't blame the interventions in the ME for the mass immigration of Muslims to Europe: they are pro-war, they want to exterminate the Muslims to begin with. In their vision, it wasn't NATO's fault when it bombed and invaded the ME: the fault was with the citizens of those countries, who dared to flee war. In their vision, they should've died in their countries.

Featherless above. Kolomoisky is Jewish, as to his ‘roots, origins’ or so it is claimed, by wiki, etc. He is a tri-national, Ukr., Cyprus (thus a EU passport) + Israel. He actually lives in Switzerland - is domiciled in Switz. (wife and kids - Schengen agreement with EU) but spends most of his time in France, it is more scenic, less cramped, more servants, etc. Just one article, in F, to evidence that. (Poroshenko, Tymoshenko, not, and anyway, what is the point?)

Zelensky is a clown who will destroy the last vestiges of the Ukr. state, while a TV Show Pretense Gvmt will air. (My pessimistic view at present.) Everything that moves will be privatized, monetized, and the oligarchic hold on ‘territory’ will be upped. Ukr. will end up in a condition similar to medieval fiefdoms (with modern dystopia traits), or today’s Mafyia-run districts. That trend has been there for a while, it was covered up by the US (hoping for rapine, see Biden, Son, Burisma, etc.) and EU, same.

The Ukr. population will continue to bleed away, or die on the spot (the last two polio outbreaks in the world! were in Ukraine, and you don’t want to hear about AIDs.. tuberculosis, nor child deaths..) Russia doesn’t want to - or can’t (for now, pragmatically), take over Donesk + Lugansk Rs, never mind the rest of the country. The EU no longer wants anything to do with Ukr. (largely for sanitary reasons, plus loss of influence..), they feel betrayed by the US (though they can’t say so, and eschew their own responsibility) has become a headache best ignored, a failure to be hidden.

The Christchurch guy's manifesto literally begins with the title "It's the birthrates" (which he then repeates two times). Then, literally the next paragraph is this:

If there is one thing I want you to remember from these writings, its that the birthrates must change. Even if we were to deport all Non-Europeans from our lands tomorrow, the European people would still be spiraling into decay and eventual death.

from NBC News
Trump's ban on Chinese telecom giant Huawei could cut off rural Americans' cell service
"These rural areas are going to not get served, and it puzzles me why these senators ... don’t see the problem here,” a former FCC commissioner said.

The Trump administration's ban on goods produced by a Chinese tech giant would seem to have little to do with rural America. But rural cell service providers across the U.S. are almost entirely dependent on the company, Huawei, which produces inexpensive wireless communications equipment.
These small telecom companies now face billions of dollars in costs or the end of their businesses entirely after the Trump administration effectively banned the Chinese company last week over spying accusations. . .here

Many nation states claim they have no resources to share with refugees. Exactly zero nation states claim they have no resources to share with tourists.

That leads one to ask, what is the difference between refugees and tourists? One group has a piece of paper with an official stamp (visa) and official approval to access resources (currency or bank account). The other has only their labor and the will to survive.

As far as I'm concerned the tourists can stay home. Flashing wads of cash and gold jewelry doesn't impress me. The most they can accomplish is to drive up land prices so local people can no longer afford to live here.

Will some refugees cause problems for their neighbors? Of course. It really is true that "no good deed goes unpunished". But that doesn't matter. The good deed must still be done for its own sake, not for possible reward or otherwise.

My impression of immediate post World War II Europe is heaps of rubble everywhere, millions of refugees, and much suffering. One hopes that the descendants of those earlier war refugees would not want to see a repeat of that suffering imposed on anyone, anywhere.

The infamous Defense Intelligence Agency memo (from 2012?) plainly stated that the rise of the "Islamic State" was a desirable policy outcome. I speculate there is another memo someplace that states an increase in refugees headed to Europe was also a desirable outcome. Every war creates refugees, so it doesn't take a genius to predict that destroying Iraq, Syria, Libya, etc. would create many refugees, some of whom would head for Europe.

Now why would Uncle Sam want to see more refugees in Europe? Because he knows the only way to stay on top is to stomp on everyone else. Divide-and-conquer is still the easiest, most effective strategy to keep enemies weak and malleable. Pitting groups of workers against each other is child's play for the Empire. I've been watching this dynamic at work my whole life, and I'm very sorry to say it is still as easy as taking candy from a baby.

But you're not the anti-immigration leader. The Christchurch shooter's opinion has as much value as yours -- with the advantage that he articulated his opinion and is very similar to past terrorists from the far-right of the recent past. He also mentions a list of clandestine groups he claims he either sympathizes with or is "blessed" by.

There is no -- and probably never will be -- a systematized literature about far-right thinking. The reason is very simple: its main pillar is irrationality. It is anti-intellecutalism by default. It relies mainly on propaganda, art (aestheticization of politics) and, most importantly, brute force (as a repository to Reason).

The argument of the far-right is a dead-end for the rest of the world: if your "race" reproduces at a higher rate than the "white race", then you are comitting a "relative genocide" ("replacement") against the whites, therefore comittin an act of aggression against the whites; if you reproduce at a lower rate than the whites, then the whites will extinguish your race through the same mechanism - then it will be up to your race to try to exterminate the whites. Your mere existence can be considered an act of aggression.

The only hypothetical solution would be if every "race" have exactly the same birthrate -- which is impossible (even more so because the concept of race is pseudoscientific: who would determine how many races exist and who would belong to each race?). It is an ideology that, taken to its logic consequence, leads humanity to endless wars of anihilation and, therefore, systematic genocide.
