Who Are The Illuminati?

Who Are The Illuminati?

By Richard Stone 

“A loose affiliation of millionaires and billionaires” (Paul Simon).
“The world is governed by far different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes” (Benjamin Disraeli).
“Give me control over a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes the laws” (Mayer Rothschild).

Conspiracy theory is the theory that most of the world is secretly governed by a small group of men who operate behind the scenes. Conspiracy theory is now an accepted turn of phrase but sometimes one hears the expression, sometimes whispered rather than spoken. “The Illuminati”.

What does this mean? Who are the Illuminati? They are, in essence, a cartel of international bankers and industrialists based in Western Europe and North America. The names of certain families persist over long periods of time. Some of the most important names are Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff.

The pivotal family is probably the house of Rothschild, the descendants of Mayer Rothschild (1743 – 1812) of Frankfurt. The male descendants of this family, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. The family established banking institutions in Vienna, London, Naples and Paris as well as Frankfurt. Ever since the middle ages, these families have been building their power by lending money at rates of interest to the monarchies and governments of Europe who were forever in debt, particularly in times of war. Sooner than tax the population to raise funds, always an unpopular measure, they usually preferred to borrow money from the money-lenders. This was the birth of the concept “the national debt.” The countries of the world are forever in debt but where there is a debtor there is a creditor – who is this money owed to? It is owed to this coterie of international bankers.

By the nineteenth century the power of the Rothschild family was immense. They increased their wealth with great cunning and cleverness, while maintaining a low public profile. A notable example of their methods was their exploitation of the battle of Waterloo. The Rothschilds had spies watching the course of the battle and as soon as became evident that Wellington had won, a Rothschild agent traveled at maximum speed to London, arriving hours before Wellington’s own messenger. Rothschild received the messenger and began conspicuously selling his stocks. The whole stock exchange assumed that Wellington had lost and Napoleon had won so everybody started selling, at this point, other Rothschild agents bought up huge stocks at give-away prices. Thus an already massive fortune was massively increased.

The Rockefeller family may be equally important. The pivotal figure in this family was J.D.Rockefeller, who made his fortune out of Standard Oil or Esso in Ohio and Pennsylvania. He also controlled the railroads. When rival road transport systems were established he attempted to block them by parking his trains across the roads at level crossings. His basic business technique was the elimination of competitors at all costs, followed by the establishment of a monopoly, followed by profit taking. He rapidly gained a name for huge wealth, secrecy and hard and dirty business practice. In his later years he had a harsh and gaunt appearance, so to counter his bad “public image” JD more or less invented the PR industry. He had short films of himself made, calculated to charm the public, himself playing golf with a pretty little child for instance. This film was shown on TV recently. It has a rather false and amateurish air but was very effective with the public of the day.

The Rockerfellers currently have controlling interests in Exxon (the world’s biggest company) and the Chase Manhattan Bank, which turns over trillions of dollars a week. With so many billions in their hands already, what does more money mean? Obviously it means more power and more control over other human beings, but to what end and in whose name?

Apparently in the name of Lucifer, the fallen angel also known as the bringer of light, hence the name “Illuminati”, which means “the enlightened ones”. Lucifer is also known for the characteristics of pride, deception and impermanence. The illuminati were apparently founded in Bavaria in 1770 by one Adam Weisshaupt, a student of the Jewish philosopher Mendelsohn, and backed by the Rothschild family. The society has always been based on the lodges of Freemasonry, which was taken over at the highest levels during the course of the eighteenth century by agents of the Illuminati. Freemasonry is a very secretive institution, to the extent that members at one level do not know what members at another level are doing. Hence it is an organisation which is full of bonhomie and good deeds at the lower and middle levels, while its motives and deeds at the highest levels veer towards the dark side.

Both Freemasonry and Judaism have strong roots in the ancient Egyptian systems of religious belief, and it was this very similarity which attracted the illuminati to Freemasonry, for most of them were Jewish. It is a source of controversy today to speculate whether or not they are still predominantly Jewish. No unfair racism intended – they either are or they aren’t. Certainly there is much evidence to suggest that they are not, George Bush for instance, a prominent illuminati figure and obviously not Jewish.

The all seeing eye on the U.S. Dollar Bill

The United States of America is more or less a creation of Freemasonry. The symbol of Freemasonry was placed on the cornerstone of the Whitehouse, while the assembled Freemasons lodges stood and watched the ceremony. The famous all-seeing eye in the pyramid appears on the one dollar bill. It is one of the main symbols of Freemasonry. This bill also bears the inscription, in Latin, “1776, the year of inception of a new world order”. If one joins the dots formed by the stars of the thirteen original states one obtains an exact Star of David.

The goal of the IlIuminati is total control of the world. The only nations, which are holding out against their power, are some Islamic nations and China but this resistance is limited because the Illuminati have crushing economic power.

There are certain methods of subjugation and control which are indispensable to this power. The first is, of course, complete control over all financial systems, all borrowing and lending. All banks, all building societies, all insurance companies have to be under their control. At the lowest level even the smallest bank will be forced to toe the line. At the highest level the World Bank decides the fate of countries. It is an interesting and amazing fact that both the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England are controlled by these Illuminati dynasties, in spite of the names of these banks, which suggest that they are run for public benefit. It is said that both Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy wanted to change this system.

The second essential component is control of the media. It is controlled through business fashion. If the board meeting, or the management meeting, or the sales meeting, or the training meeting suggests that facts should be presented in a certain way, who is going to present them differently? There is an implied threat to one’s job and one’s career. Few people would gladly face demotion, retrenchment or the dole and most people are so ambitious they will do nearly anything “reasonable” to court favour with their superiors. This is how business is controlled and the media is the most important part of business, for it controls people’s minds. People are very suggestible and often lend more credence to what they see on “the box” than to what happens on their own street. The Illuminati know this and use this suggestibility factor to the full. Lenin’s key move during the Russian revolution was the capture of the radio station.

The third factor in the control system is the universities, and through them the whole education system. Particular effort is put into the schools of sociology, politics, economics and education, hence “liberal” systems of education which are often degenerate and even violent. Their men are inserted into the universities through the power of funding by big business. They then spread their influence downwards through tertiary to secondary and primary education.

The fourth factor is the enormous influence wielded by two similar organisations, The Council of Foreign Relations in the USA and the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England. These institutions are schools for statesmen, Illuminati statesmen. They are the stamping grounds of men such as Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinksi and Lord Carrington. These two “think tanks” have a crucial influence on all US and British governments, no matter which party is “in power”. The statesmen produced by these institutions can and do decide the fate of nations.The tax-exempt foundations are also instruments of Illuminati power. The Ford foundation and the Rockefeller foundation are two prominent examples of this type of “charitable” institution. They were heavily involved in supporting various communist powers when the cold war was at its height. Communism versus capitalism arms race = more money and power for the Illuminati. So these are some of the structures through which the Illuminati work but what methods do they use?

Pitting one side against the other, using a theory devised by Hegel, which is: Thesis versus antitheses – synthesis.

Every force tends to have an opposite counterforce. The conflict between the two results in a new situation, the synthesis. The illuminati make it their business to be the synthesis. Thus no problem situation is ever “nipped in the bud” it is rather fostered and used, just as the Soviet Union was fostered and used.

The insertion of immigrant groups into countries is a variation of this divide and rule process. Each group can be played off against the other.

“Double talk” and “double think”. George Orwell knew instinctively what was going on when he invented these two expressions:
I categorically deny = it will happen a bit later.
Peace = war by another means.

To say one thing and do another is fundamental to Illuminati practice. They believe that the public will accept these lies through laziness and wishful thinking. Unfortunately they are usually correct.

“Keep them busy busy busy, back on the farm with the other animals.” We are kept so busy with business (or busyness) that we do not understand or participate in the decisions and events that will crucially affect our future.

When a real power move is made it is usually done secretly and suddenly often with the pretence that nothing has happened. There is preparation for opposition, but conflict is often not necessary as most people have been trained to be so passive that they will probably not create an effective opposition.

Use of front men in important positions. These front men have the characteristic of “servile obedience”, probably because of a blot or blots on their character which they are anxious to conceal. Most of the Presidents of the USA fall into this category. The current situation springs to mind. Behind the opponent stands the man with real power, who has long been groomed for this position. Men like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and George Bush are in this category.

The assassination of opposing leaders as quietly and as secretly as possible, so as to simulate a natural death. If this is not possible due to time constraints or other limited circumstances, surrogates are used and the lines of suspicion are covered by deception, false accusation and if necessary, multiple assassinations. Induced heart attacks, fake motor accidents and apparent suicides are also favoured methods of assassination.

Social engineering. An easily manipulated rabble is what is required. Mixed population groups with weak morals, weak traditions, low educational standards and weak group willpower are the aim. Those with special aptitudes can be taken out and trained to serve the illuminati for technical purposes, security purposes or as part of the propaganda apparatus. The middle class will become surplus to requirements and will be reduced to relative poverty.

Mockery and submission of the manners and morals of societies which show any resistance. Control of the media, the fashion industries and the education systems are essential components in this strategy. “Free love”, the cult of youth, mockery of the Christian and Muslim faiths also fall into this category. “I don’t give a rats ass about Jesus Christ” is one recent masterpiece from one of Hollywood’s biggest starts. He probably didn’t realise what he was saying, which makes him a “useful idiot’. A “useful idiot” is much more effective than a conscious supporter. By these means of subversion societies and nations are conquered from within and open battle is usually not necessary.

The conduct of unrelenting economic warfare. This is the real war and continues even while the bombs are falling and the bullets are flying. The important part is the control of the enemy’s economy after the conflict. The recent economic crash in the far-eastern countries is in reality an assertion of the Illuminati’s economic power, an expression of economic dominance. The Illuminati now control 10-15% of the Japanese economy. This is public knowledge, that is what has been bought at bargain prices. In reality they probably control much more.

Control and exploitation of the standards of public health. The sale of prescription drugs is a huge business generating mega profits. Medical operations and treatments can also be very profitable to big business. These extreme treatments have their place but are over-used for the sake of profit.

In fact big business, particularly the big drug companies, have a vested interest in the ill health of the population. These companies, working through the US Food and Drug Administration, have tried to suppress the health food industry. In this they have largely failed but now the game is to own it and control it so that health foods can only be afforded by the elite.

Argument through defamation of character. The factual debate is ignored while characters are defamed. This is usually a very effective technique as many human beings are very suggestible and seem reluctant to use their reasoning abilities. Thus a “smear campaign” can easily draw attention away from the facts.

To conclude, it is growing increasingly evident that a world government is developing, and many would say that it is probably no bad thing, but few have asked for what purpose this “new world order” is created. Nor have they asked themselves what the consequences will be. These consequences (or some of them) will probably be as follows:

• Increasing profits for big business, increasing poverty for the middle class (who they despise). A rapid decline in moral standards and the promotion of social decay.

• Transience. Jobs that don’t last; neighbourhoods that don’t last.

• Increasing levels of crime and violence.

• Decline and demise of public services; replacement by private enterprise – good service for the few who can afford it.

• Ongoing ill health for the bulk of the population because of stress; poor quality foods; food additives; genetic engineering; pollution and drugs. There may be good health for those who can afford it – only the rich and well informed.

• The gradual phasing out of national governments, which will have powers more like the regional governments of today.

• The formation of several conglomerations like the United States.

In time a world leader will be announced, a real one this time. A pity he will have a cynical contempt for the most of humanity. Do we deserve it?

“That Poppy”: You Tube Star Under Illuminati Mind Control

Vigilant Citizen — March 28, 2017

That poppy

The YouTube channel of an artist named That Poppy has been mystifying viewers for years. Behind the weirdness of her videos is a disturbing story: The mind control of a young pop star.
After receiving several e-mails requesting to check out That Poppy, I sat down and went through the 70+ videos on her YouTube channel. The experience was, to say the least, perplexing. Spending more than a few minutes watching this girl speaking in a childish and robotic tone, repeating specific words and phrases, quickly leads to thoughts such as: “What am I doing with my life?” and “I really should be doing something else right now”.
But That Poppy is not a random YouTube personality who is simply being “random”. She’s an actual musical artist signed to Island Records (owned by Universal). Her singles Lowlife and Money were heavily promoted by the label and obtained significant radio and TV airplay.
While her official VEVO channel contains the few music videos she released on Island Records, That Poppy also stars in a separate YouTube channel where bizarre, absurdist videos are uploaded on a regular basis. For example, this video is That Poppy repeating “I’m Poppy” for over 4 minutes.
Many of these shorts videos appear to satirize YouTube stars who babble about inane things, beg for “likes, comments, and subscribers” and use their fame to sell their products. But, as the videos progress, themes associated with Monarch mind control and the satanic occult elite begin surfacing. Through subtle clues peppered throughout her videos, we see That Poppy being introduced to the dark side of the industry … and humanity being sucked out of her. Her robotic voice and the constant repeating of specific keywords are reminiscent of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practices, causing YouTube viewers to instinctively ask “Am I being brainwashed by That Poppy?”.
What makes these video even more disturbing is that they are getting darker as That Poppy – the musical artist – is going deeper into the industry.
Let’s look at the most important themes of the video – which happen to be the entertainment industry’s favorite themes. Of course, I will not go through all 70 videos because that would be INSANE … Kind of like making a 30-minute video of a girl playing a tiny xylophone.

Five Eyes Allies Do Spy on One Another

Wayne Madsen — Strategic Culture March 28, 2017

One eye Union Jack

In a rare public announcement, Britain’s signals intelligence agency, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), issued a rare public statement concerning a charge by an American former judge that it conducted electronic surveillance of president-elect Donald Trump after his upset victory on November 8, 2016. GCHQ stated: «Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct ‘wiretapping’ against the then president-elect are nonsense. They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored». Its public announcement belied the fact that GCHQ and its four Five Eyes partners have spied on each other’s citizens as a legal «work around» to their national laws designed to prevent such domestic eavesdropping on citizens by their respective agencies.

In the U.S., domestic surveillance orders are issued by a special Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), pursuant to the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The other nations, the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, have similar restrictive laws in place.

Such spying took place against two British Cabinet members in 1983 by Canada’s SIGINT agency. Former Canadian Communications Security Establishment (now known as Communications Security Establishment Canada or CSEC) officer Mike Frost said that Margaret Thatcher used the five-power global surveillance network to spy on two of her Cabinet members because she did not believe they were loyal in supporting Thatcher’s policies. Frost told CBS’s «60 Minutes», «[Thatcher] had two ministers that she said, ‘They weren’t onside’… so my boss went to London and did intercept traffic from those two ministers». Frost confirmed that the five countries could circumvent domestic laws against spying on citizens by asking another member of the alliance to do it for them.

One of the British ministers spied upon and then fired by Thatcher after her resounding re-election in 1983 was Foreign Secretary Francis Pym, a Conservative Party moderate who, ironically, was also in charge of GCHQ and the MI6 Secret Intelligence Service. The other was Deputy Prime Minister and Home Secretary William Whitelaw, who was moved to be Speaker of the House of Lords, an insignificant position.

In 1998, it was revealed by Margaret Newsham, a former Lockheed contractor for the National Security Agency, that the GCHQ and NSA were involved in warrantless surveillance of U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond’s overseas phone calls. In the early 1970s, NSA and GCHQ reportedly cooperated in conducting warrantless eavesdropping on the communications in New York City of Beatles singer John Lennon.

The Canadian agency also eavesdropped the car phone of the U.S. ambassador in Ottawa, with NSA liaison officers fully aware of the espionage. In the 1960s, when French President Charles de Gaulle made common cause with the independence movement of French-speaking Quebec, the Canadians had the Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish SIGINT agencies («THIRDPARTY» members of the five-party SIGINT alliance) conduct surveillance of communications between Paris and the Parti Quebecois Premier of Quebec Rene Levesque and his separatist movement.

During the 1980s, the Canadians were used by NSA to conduct «black bag» surveillance, including breaking and entering into the homes of U.S. citizens believed to be working with the Soviets. It was a work-around designed to circumvent the lack of evidence, which made a court order from the FISC nearly impossible to obtain. In the late 1990s, NSA eavesdropping devices were discovered in email routers located in the European Parliament headquarters in Brussels. Among the email being intercepted was that of British Members of the European Parliament.

In 2015, New Zealand’s then-Prime Minister John Key was placed under surveillance by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) in Canberra. The transcripts were not only passed on to Australia’s government and the NSA, but also to the New Zealand Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB). The Australian eavesdrops detailed Key’s negotiating stance with regard to Pharmac, the government’s drug purchasing agency, and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal. In December 2016, Key abruptly resigned as prime minister for «personal reasons». Asian trade negotiations also resulted in the ASD conducting surveillance of the Chicago-based law firm Mayer Brown on behalf of NSA. In 2013, Mayer Brown was representing the government of Indonesia in trade talks with the Unites States.

GCHQ also owes the United States a few favors. in 2007, the U.S. Defense Department, which oversees the NSA, confirmed that the NSA did «download [Princess] Diana’s conversations» in the years before her death in 1997, but insisted it was only part of a security operation involving «other targets». British law prohibited GCHQ from monitoring Diana, so the NSA gladly conducted the surveillance on behalf of its British counterpart.

Legal work around surveillance operations are detailed in a 2005 Secret NSA draft directive, titled «Collection, Processing and Dissemination of Allied Communications,» which was revealed by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The draft states, «[The 1946 UKUSA] agreement has evolved to include a common understanding that both governments will not target each other’s citizens/persons. However, when it is in the best interest of each nation, each reserved the right to conduct unilateral COMINT [communications intelligence] action against each other’s citizens/persons… Under certain circumstances, it may be advisable and allowable to target second party persons and second party communications systems unilaterally when it is in the best interests of the US and necessary for US national security… Such targeting must be performed exclusively within the direction, procedures and decision processes outlined in this directive… There are circumstances when targeting of second party persons and communications systems, with the full knowledge and co-operation of one or more second parties, is allowed when it is in the best interests of both nations. This targeting will conform to guidelines set forth in this directive».

At a meeting of Five Eyes agencies at GCHQ headquarters on April 22-23, 2008, it was agreed that the five agencies would share their intercepted bulk data with one another, even if it includes their own citizens. The Australian Defense Signals Directorate (DSD), now the ASD, showed the least concern about its citizens being caught up in bulk data sharing. The Australians also appeared willing to share intercepted data with «non-intelligence agencies, for example, the Australian Federal Police.

The targeting of other Five Eyes partners was carried out by the CSEC during the G20 summit in London in 2009. Members of the delegations of Canada, the United States, and Australia saw their cell phone and email communications intercepted by CSEC eavesdroppers who conducted their operations on British soil. A document classified TOP SECRET STRAP 1 states the inter-Five Eyes eavesdropping was conducted by CSEC on behalf of GCHQ to «ensure that intelligence relevant to HMG’s [Her Majesty’s Government] desired outcomes for its presidency of the G20 reaches customers at the right time and in a form which allows them to make full use of it».

A similar legal work around occurred during the 2010 G8 and G20 summits in Toronto. There, a special NSA surveillance operation conducted at the U.S. embassy in Ottawa targeted the communications of members of the Canadian, British, and Australian delegations. At the same, the CSEC, from its headquarters in Leitrim, outside of Ottawa, intercepted the communications of American, British, and Australian delegates. Technically, no laws were broken.

The GCHQ and the British government have cried foul over reports they surveilled Trump’s transition team on behalf of the Obama administration. However, there is a wealth of historical information on such cooperation between the Five Eyes. The fact that GCHQ squawked publicly about it being implicated in political eavesdropping makes it more likely that it was caught red-handed. GCHQ and its partners have come a long way from simply offering «no comment» to such press accounts.

Adam Schiff is a Traitor to Humanity

Paul Craig Roberts — paulcraigroberts.org March 28, 2017

Adam Schiff is a traitor to the United States. Indeed, to all of humanity. Yes, he is a Jew, but America has many loyal Jews. What makes Schiff a traitor is not that he is a Jew. He is a traitor, because he is undermining American democracy and the forces for peace.

The Clintons and the Democratic Leadership Council sold out the Democratic constituency, that is, the working class and peace, because they were convinced that they could get more money from Wall Street, the global corporations, and the military/security complex than they could from the labor unions.

The labor unions were going to be destroyed by jobs offshoring and the relocation of US manufacturing abroad. This relocation of American manufacturing would destroy the budgets of the state and local governments in America’s manufacturing regions and result in fierce pressure on the public sector unions, which are being destroyed in turn.

In short, Democratic Party funding was evaporating, and Democrats needed to compete against Republicans for funding from the One Percent. George Soros helped the Clinton Democrats in this transition, and soon there was no one representing the working class.

Consequently, since Clinton the real median family income of the working class has been falling, and in the 21st century the working class has been buried in unemployment and debt.

But the Democratic Party has prospered, and so have Bill and Hillary Clinton. The Democratic Party raised far more money, especially from the One Percent, than Trump, who allied with the working class, in the past presidential election. Bill & Hillary have a personal fortune of $120 million at least, and $1.6 trillion in their personal foundation that supports their daughter.

Using Government to get rich is an old trick in America, but the Clintons took it to new highs when they flushed the working class and became the whores for Wall Street, Israel, and the military/security complex.

This is where the Democratic Party is today. The despicable Adam Schiff’s function is to discredit the presidency of Donald Trump by creating an atmosphere in which any interest in establishing normal relations with Russia, thus reducing the tensions that could result in nuclear war, is proof of being a “Putin agent” and a “traitor.”

What Schiff is doing is making it impossible for President Trump to reduce the dangerous tensions between the nuclear superpowers that the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes created. These tensions can easily result in nuclear war, as I have often emphasized.

It is extraordinary that Schiff, who endangers the existence of all life on planet Earth, is a hero of the liberal/progressive/left. The pressitute media whores love him. He always gets top billing as he urges on humanity to its final destruction.

How is it that Donald Trump, who says he wants to reduce tensions with Russia is portrayed as a threat, while the liberal/progressive/left, the CIA, and the Democratic Party are portrayed as the salt of the Earth for promulgating nuclear war with Russia (and China)?

I have no explanation as to why the peoples of the West, as ignorant and idiotic as they are, and their ignorance and idiocy are extreme, prefer nuclear war with Russia (and China) instead of normal relations.

But the utterly evil Adam Schiff prefers nuclear war, and that is where he is leading the insouciant West.

And you can bet your last cent that the media whores will continue cheering Schiff on.

So Who Annexed the Crimean Peninsula Then?

Arina Tsukanova — Strategic Culture March 28, 2017

Who annexed the Crimean Peninsula

Due to the international media’s continued claims about the «annexation of Crimea», it’s been difficult for the citizens of the US and Europe to make sense of the details of the peninsula’s recent history. Exactly three years ago, on March 16, 2014, the Crimeans were offered a choice: to rejoin Russia or to return to the constitution of 1992 that proclaimed Crimea a legal, democratic, secular state whose relationship with Ukraine was based on bilateral agreements. That constitution was unilaterally abolished by Kiev on March 17, 1995, and here’s what’s surprising: no one at that time in the West demanded that the Ukrainian government stop violating the provisions of international law and the rights of the inhabitants of the Crimean peninsula. And then in 1995, special ops forces from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and the Armed Forces of Ukraine (ZSU) landed in Crimea and Sevastopol in order to establish «Ukrainian law and order», seizing the building housing the Supreme Council of the republic, where the administration of the acting president of Crimea, Yuriy Meshkov, was also headquartered, and demanding that he be turned over. Since Meshkov refused to vacate his office, they tried to poison him. Much later he described how his drink had been poisoned, and that later in the hospital he was refused proper medical care. Only an emergency evacuation to Moscow miraculously saved his life.

In this manner, the real annexation of Crimea by Ukraine, which no one condemned, was completed in 1995. It all began in 1991 with a power grab by the Ukrainian parliament, which annexed the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, forcibly joining it to Ukraine despite the results of the January referendum about reestablishing Crimea’s autonomy. The annexation by Ukraine culminated in the revocation of the constitution and the liquidation of the office of the president of Crimea. However, no one in Europe or America introduced sanctions against this new Ukrainian state that had flagrantly trampled on the right of nations to self-determination: according to the 1989 census, three-quarters of the population of Crimea were not ethnic Ukrainians.

From standpoint of the overwhelming majority of Crimea’s residents, a historical injustice was redressed in March 2014: Ukraine was stripped of what it had obtained illegally between 1991 and 1995 using deception and military force. In the eyes of Crimeans, Ukraine’s claims to the peninsula and the support of those claims by the West look very odd. In the 1990s, the world «overlooked» Ukraine’s annexation of Crimea, and no one was concerned that the rights of the inhabitants of the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic had been violated. But when those citizens again took it into their heads to determine their own destiny in 2014, an international scandal blew up that still burns today.

Furthermore, Ukraine is floating the idea of dragging the peninsula «back» under its jurisdiction, knowing perfectly well that the Crimeans themselves are overwhelmingly and unequivocally opposed to this. It is very strange that over the course of the last three years the international community has not once listened to the voice of this majority. Moreover, international sanctions have not been imposed against Ukraine for its attempts to leave the inhabitants of the peninsula without water or electricity. Kiev has actually been working against the Crimeans, under the slogan: «Crimea will either be Ukrainian or uninhabited!»

In 2014, Kiev ordered the North Crimean Canal (built by the USSR between 1961 and 1971) to be cut off, as a result of which the acreage of irrigated land in Crimea declined by 85%. At the end of September 2015, a group of Ukrainian «activists», representing the ultra-right organizations Right Sector and Azov battalion as well as several fugitives from the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar People organized a transportation «blockade of Crimea»: the highways into Crimea were shut down to prevent Ukrainian goods from reaching the peninsula, with the intention of thereby triggering a food shortage and a rise in food prices, due to the complexity and expense of obtaining supplies from mainland Russia by sea, air, or across the Kerch Strait.

Later, when it turned out that the plan had come to naught and that the «food blockade» had mostly caused harm to small shops owned by Crimean Tatars, the chairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis, Refat Chubarov, unexpectedly claimed that the blockade «was instigated by several people, including the leaders of the Mejlis, but it had no connection with the institution of the Mejlis itself». As a result, Ukrainian businesses, which were deprived of the opportunity to sell food to Crimea, suffered the most from the actions of the «blockaders». In the peninsular, however, wholesale merchants quickly adapted to obtaining their supplies from Russia, domestic producers got a shot in the arm, and traveling markets popped up, offering products from as far away as Belarus.

By late 2015, the sponsors of the «trade blockade» of Crimea realized that they had not achieved their goal: there was no sign of hunger, nor a significant increase in food prices, nor social protests on the peninsula. In addition, many residents of Crimea began to ridicule the blockade on social media, publishing photographs from markets and stores that showed nothing resembling a food shortage, on the contrary they documented that meat, bread, milk, and cereals were easily available and that fish and fruit were in fact abundant. Then formally uncontrolled by Kiev Crimea Tatar activists led by Lenur Islyamov blew up electricity pylons in the neighboring Kherson region of Ukraine supplying the peninsula. Crimeans were left without electricity on the eve of winter. Since at that time the energy bridge from Russia had not yet been built, a state of emergency was declared on the peninsula. Kiev then set about to blackmail the inhabitants of the peninsula: they were offered electricity in exchange for signing an agreement with an electric company that included a line acknowledging Crimea and Sevastopol to be part of Ukraine. This blackmail ended in a massive failure. Only 6.2% of the Crimean residents surveyed supported the Ukrainian proposal, and 93.1% rejected it, agreeing to endure their difficult conditions for several months. The contract with Ukraine was not finalized on Kiev’s terms.

For three years the Western democracies have been turning a blind eye to the historical choice made by the people of Crimea. Ukraine has repeatedly tried to challenge this choice through provocations, blockades, and blackmail. However, the people of Crimea used to live without electric lights or heat and to endure inconveniences and deprivations, if only to avoid becoming once again part of Ukraine.

Another conspicuous result of Crimea’s transition to Russian jurisdiction is also telling: it turns out that, contrary to Ukrainian and Western propaganda, there are no conflicts between the Russian and Ukrainian populations in their shared home. Without the Ukrainian nationalist element in Crimea, it becomes clear that between the Russian and Ukrainian peoples there is no enmity, no tensions, and no reason to fight one other. Three state languages are officially recognized in the republic: Russian, Ukrainian, and Crimean Tatar. And Muslim mosques peacefully coexist with Russian Orthodox churches. Were it not for the warmongers who are trying to jump-start the underground activities of Hizb at-Tahrīr and other radical organizations in Crimea, Crimea would have no other problems, except one – coping with the devastation wrought by Ukraine.

Throughout all the years of its independence, Ukraine enjoyed what it had inherited from the USSR in Crimea, without investing a cent in the peninsula, as a result of which Crimea today lags noticeably behind Russia’s flourishing Kuban region. For the last three years Russia has been actively investing in Crimea (annual subsidies amount to more than $600 million, which does not include the multi-billion-dollar investments in the construction of the Kerch Strait Bridge, which is a separate line item in the budget). Despite the enormous pressure from the international sanctions, these measures are already bringing real benefits to people’s lives. And in the next article I’ll tell you all about life today on the peninsula.

Vehicle Attacks are “Not Our Style” – Radical Muslim

henrymakow.com — March 28, 2017

Vehicle Attacks Are Not Done By Muslims

westminster terrorSalmon Hossein is a radical Muslim living in Bangladesh who believes all terror attacks in the West are organized by intelligence agencies under the coordination of Mossad.

by Salman Hossein — (henrymakow.com)

The Westminister Bridge/House of Parliament attacks and the Berlin Marketplace were textbook Mossad ops carried out with the assistance of the (((BND))) and (((Mi-5))). The operations were conceived by Jewish scriptwriters in what can only be described as an art-imitating-life scenario.
The Westminster bridge car attack in London exactly a year after the Jewish terrorist bombings in Brussels on the occult date of 3/16/2016 was carried out by either a Jew or (((Mi-5))) asset. The BBC’s Daniel Sandford stated that there were two attackers involved – one being a bald (((Caucasian male))) and the other described as a black male with a goatee. The vehicle was driven by the bald male while the dual citizen British-Nigerian got out of the passenger’s side to storm into parliament square to carry out the alleged stabbing against the cop (if the official story can actually be believed).
Why did the (((White))) driver have to crash the car into the railings of the Parliament instead of driving right into it? Was it done in order to avoid direct CCTV capture of his involvement?
How could Adrian Elms aka “Khalid Masood” (a man with a violent criminal past)  be seduced into allegedly running out of a vehicle with just a knife (if the official story is to be believed)? He must have been tricked into thinking that “Islamic terrorism” in the West is a real thing and clearly didn’t socialize much with the mainstream Muslim communities in the United Kingdom.

His (((Mi-5))) Caucasian handler(s) must have sold him the idea that there would be multiple co-ordinated attackers (like in the Orlando gay nightclub incident) that would join him in the operation and the main targets were the local politicians in the Parliament Building (or else why would he go all in as a lone wolf?).
The blades used in the alleged stabbings show no blood stains from the images seen so far. There are no images/CCTV footage showing Keith Palmer being stabbed.
The truth is that no matter what conflict zone in the Muslim world one goes to – one will never witness trucks being rammed into random civilians (not our style). Except in one instance:- the “Israeli”/ Palestinian conflict. In this instance, all Israeli Jews are considered Occupiers and all of them above the age of 18 irrespective of gender is a legitimate target to be killed.
This is the original position of Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad with respects to the presence of Jews in Palestine. This is a position billions strongly support.
The Israelis, in their direct contact with the Palestinian resistance, have projected their experience with Palestinian Muslims unto (mainly) white gentiles in the Western world – thereby attempting to create/instigate a greater Islam versus Western clash of civilizations debacle (as per the Bernard Lewis/Samuel Huntington Jewish conspiracies dictate).
As two of the five dancing “Israelis” (Oded Ellner and Sivan Kurzberg) y stated explicitly: “The fact of the matter is we are coming from a ‘country’ that experiences terror daily (sic!)…” and “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.”

Welcome To The Third World, Part 22: Whites Are Dying “Deaths Of Despair”

Dollar Collapse.com — March 27, 2017

“White privilege” is such a commonly accepted pillar of American society that it’s become material for comics. As Chris Rock tells his audience in the following clip, “There ain’t a white man in this room who would change places with me. And I’m rich!”

.

But what if that turned out not to be true? What if the collapse of the middle class brought on by the past four decades’ debt binge is hitting the “used to haves” harder than the “never hads”?

That’s what the life expectancy numbers seem to indicate. Check out the charts that appeared in today’s Wall Street Journal:

Death Rates Rise for Wide Swath of White Adults, Study Finds

Increases in ‘deaths of despair’—from drugs, alcohol-related liver diseases and suicide.

In 2015, two Princeton University economists published a landmark paper showing that mortality was rising for white middle-aged Americans after decades of decline, a startling development for an economically advanced nation. Now a new analysis from the same pair, released Thursday by the Brookings Institution, paints an even bleaker picture of the nation’s largest-population group.

Mortality has been rising since the turn of this century for an even broader swath of white adults, starting at age 25, the researchers found, driven by troubles in a hard-hit working class. Death rates for white non-Hispanics with a high-school education or less now exceed those of blacks overall, the pair said—and they’re 30% higher for whites age 50 to 54 than for blacks overall of that age.

A Rising Toll

New research shows the increasing mortality rate among white Americans spans age groups and is most acute among the less-educated.

White deaths are rising…

Mortality rate by race, ages 50-54

…among all age groups of less-educated whites…

Mortality rate for whites with high school education or less, by age

…in contrast to elsewhere…

Mortality rate for all causes, ages 45-54

…due in part to increases in ‘deaths of despair.’

Mortality rate due to alcohol, drugs and suicide, ages 50-54

Mortality rate=deaths per 100,000

Blacks have long had a much higher death rate than whites, but that rate has dropped steeply since the beginning of this century, while the rate for whites has crept up.

Driving the uptick are increases in “deaths of despair”—from drugs, alcohol-related liver diseases and suicide, as well as a slowdown in progress against death in middle age from heart disease and cancer, the nation’s biggest killers, wrote Anne Case and Nobel Prize-winning economist Angus Deaton, her husband. The pair examined more than 15 data sets, including government health statistics, death certificates and various economic indicators.

The analysis paints a portrait of a gradual “collapse of the white, high-school-educated working class after its heyday in the early 1970s,” whose health, mental well-being, and attachment to the labor force have become successively worse for people born after 1945, they said.

The opioid epidemic has only heightened a trend that was already under way before those drugs hit the market, they said.

By contrast, Ms. Case and Mr. Deaton noted, the mortality rate has continued to decline this century for whites with a college degree, albeit more slowly than before.

“This doesn’t seem to be about current income,” Ms. Case said in a call with reporters. “It seems to be about accumulating despair.”

The rising mortality of working-class white adults appears to be rooted both in worse job opportunities and increasing social dysfunction, following generations of relatively stable lives that involved job advancement and an expectation of living better than one’s parents, the researchers said.

Wages aren’t rising with age now as much as they once did for high-school-educated white men, Ms. Case said, suggesting that the composition of jobs available to them has changed and that there is less upward mobility. “The company man job has gone away for working-class people,” Mr. Deaton said.

Those changes have come along with trends such as a decline in marriage, more temporary relationships and children out of wedlock, and a rise in social isolation that have made life less stable, they said. Taken together, these changes in life may be leading to physical and mental-health problems, they said, calling their hypothesis “preliminary but plausible” with more research needed on several fronts.

The work deepens a growing body of academic and government research into the possible causes of rising mortality rates among whites, whose ills among the working class are reshaping the nation’s social, political and economic landscape. Non-Hispanic whites make up 62% of the U.S. population, and their rising mortality rates helped to push overall U.S. life expectancy down slightly in 2015, to 78.8 years.

“For many Americans, America is starting to fail as a country,” said James Smith, chair in labor markets and demographic research at the Rand Corp., who wasn’t involved in the paper and said he was struck that mortality rates are rising for young working-class adults. “The bad things that are going on in America do not appear to be going on in Western European countries, and that’s a big deal.”

The phenomenon is occurring all across the country, both in urban and rural areas, Ms. Case and Mr. Deaton wrote. And the ills are so deep and complex that it could take many years and many changes in policy to reverse.

“As these people move into old age, they’re going to be sick, and that has disastrous consequences for Medicare and Social Security policy,” Mr. Deaton said.

—-

Perhaps “former privilege” is more spiritually destabilizing than “no privilege ever.” In any event, it’s not getting better. Debt — the main culprit in this story — continues to accumulate everywhere, while automation increasingly claims jobs that used to pave the way to the middle class.

And this is before the next financial crisis decimates huge swaths of auto manufacturing, home building and retailing. Millions of Americans will experience that Hemingway quote — “He went bankrupt slowly at first, then all at once” — first-hand.

World SITREP Heads and Tails

The Saker — March 27, 2017

World Sitrep

Pentagon has finally discovered a “link between Russia and Libyan commander Haftar”

Marine General Thomas Waldhauser, the head of U.S. forces in Africa told reporters on Friday March 24 that there was an “undeniable” link between Russia and powerful Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar, underscoring U.S. concerns about Moscow’s deepening role in Libya.” as Reuters reported.

General Khalifa Haftar, commander in the Libyan National Army (LNA), visit to Moscow was announced last summer and he visited Moscow in November 2016,. His meeting with Sergey Lavrov took place on November 29, 2016

The information about the meeting between Lavrov and General Khalifa Haftar was posted the same day on the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs website.

The Pentagon’s presentation of this fact four months later as some kind of deeply classified Intel just discovered by their Intelligence services just to show you what kind of complete and utter morons work for the US military and intelligence.

That’s however, doesn’t mitigate an interference of the US into the relations of Russia with other countries.

It’s none of your business, Pentagon!

============================

A district court in Moscow threw out a civil complaint filed by Yuri Kanner, the head of the Jewish congress in Russia, and the vice president of the World Jewish congress (WJC). The complaint was filed against  Maksim Shevchenko, an opposition journalist and a member of the Council for Human Rights for the President of the Russian Federation.  A year ago Shevchenko published an article that criticized the policies of the state of Israel against occupied Palestine.

What makes this court decision truly remarkable is that the Jewish World Congress alleged his article to be an example of “anti-Zionist speech,” instead of traditionally used by them term “anti-Semitic speech.”

The court’s decision has underscore the fact that freedom of speech protects people as individuals, not political organizations and their geo-political concepts.

An aftermath of Balaklaya arsenal explosion

The Balakleya lost one civilian killed, two wounded. And according to Vice Premier Zubko:

“We identified five destroyed private houses. Damages of different degrees were identified for 243 building, including 117 apartment buildings, 87 private houses, 12 social facilities, 22 facilities and industry. Assessment of volume of damage and destruction of these buildings is still underway”

90 servicemen were on duty at this military facility at any given time. Not a word a word about them from the government of Ukraine.

An unofficial  search was conducted across the local hospitals. No one reported any injured people arriving from this area. It looks like those 90 troops just vanished into thin air, literally or figuratively.

According to the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Center:

NATO troops are moving into the area around Kharkov.

NATO envoys arrive in Balaklia to assist in humanitarian demining NATO representatives are arriving in the town of Balaklia, Ukraine, to conduct demining operations in the area where a large-scale fire engulfed a military munitions depot on March 23, head of the Kharkiv regional state administration Yulia Svetlichna said on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

 “I can say that NATO envoys are already arriving to carry out demining the military munitions depot, at the request of the president,” Svetlichna said.

She also noted that the city’s electricity supply would be resumed on Sunday, while gas services would be renewed before next Thursday. Svetlichna emphasized that the residents had already been provided with humanitarian aid. She also reported on the preparation of applications for financial assistance from the Cabinet of Ministers to carrying out restoration work. Read also Almost 20,000 residents evacuated due to blasts at Kharkiv region military depot As UNIAN reported earlier, overnight Thursday, March 23, a fire broke out at Ukraine’s largest munitions depot in Balaklia, Kharkiv region. Mass detonations led to an evacuation of nearly 20,000 residents of nearby settlements. There were no casualties among the military, but one civilian woman was killed and several others were injured. Poroshenko said on March 23 that he instructed the Foreign Ministry, the Defense Ministry and the State Emergency Service “to attract NATO assistance for humanitarian demining in Balaklia.” On March 24, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze said that the United States and Slovakia had already expressed their readiness to assist Ukraine in demining the military arsenal in Balaklia in the framework of cooperation with the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Center.”

Also, there are reports of NATO troops moving to take over Ukrainian nuclear stations.

This is a full-fledged overt NATO invasion of Ukrainian territory.

Now, we can safely suggest that it was NATO behind the organization and execution of this explosion at Balakleya in the middle of Donbass. Most likely, they will proceed with consolidating their army against the Donetsk and Lugansk republics.

By taking over the nuclear power stations with 15 nuclear reactors, NATO gets a tool to start blackmailing Russian government with the threats of nuclear explosions.

============================

Who makes claims for Daesh?

This question was asked by a blogger I closely follow, Cat (Matvey) Motja, after the attack on the military base in Chechnya left six servicemen dead and three wounded.  So, I decided to look into who or what was the initial source for this information.

After a bit of research, I came to a conclusion that an initial source of this claim was the SITE Intelligence Group.

It was their website  that has announced that it was ISIS, and not some kind of CIA special ops or Mossad, that organized and executed this attack on the territory of Russia and by the hands of the Russian citizens

============================

Last night, the Kulak had dropped me this link to an FP article about a new TV show recently broadcasted in Russia titled “Adaptation.” The FP recommends us to watch this show, which means that this shows is yet another Russophobic anti-cultural project financed by Gazprom.

The Kulak: “Reminds me of that old Russian joke from the 1980s Cold War: the CIA dispatched an elite operative whose Russian was perfect to infiltrate the country. When he parachutes in with his secret radio into eastern Siberia, a babushka captures him with the help of some local militsiya. As the CIA agent is led away to be flown to KGB headquarters the dejected agent asks ‘How did you spot me as an American spy?’ and the babushka ‘ Oh, dear, we don’t get many blacks in our region.’” It’s worth noting that the gas behemoth’s media arm, Gazprom Media, owns the TNT network.”

Gazprom Media also owns Echo of Moscow, one of the most liberal and anti-Putin and pro-Washington and pro Israel news opinions dump.

The question is, who owns Gazprom Media?

The Foreign Policy article quotes Alexey Kovalev, “a Russian journalist and founder of Noodleremover, a Russian site that monitors the media”

Just a reminder that he dedicates himself attacking RT, TASS and Sputnik News for  what he calls “Russian propaganda for the West.”

Another FP sentiments, which is exactly why they posted this article: “is that sanctions have put several oil and gas exploration and drilling projects on hold, such as a huge Arctic gas plan with ExxonMobil.”

This should explain to you why a Russophobic show that depicts “drunk Russians working for Gazprom” is made and why it’s being promoted by the FP.tru to get a Pro-Russian TV show to be promote by the FP.

To create a fake reality and to demonstrate that Russia cannot function under sanctions and without the US technologies.

In reality

In 2017 Russia LNG export from Yamal will increase by 12% to 11.2 million tons.

People living in Norilsk said that the show hurts their patriotic sentiments and that Yamal was much better than it was depicted in this show.

They even started a twitter hashtag #Yamalisbetterthaninthemovie #ЯмалЛучшеЧемВКино

In the US the entertainment industry depicts the US as ‘shining city upon a hill” above everyone else, disregarding the reality of how dilapidated and crumbling it really is.

In Russia, it’s a complete opposite. People employed by an entertainment industry try to instill gloom and doom upon the country that is growing, building, inventing, investing in its economy and has the best prospects for the future than anyone else in the world now.

U.S. To Escalate Its Two Years War On Starving Yemen

Moon of Alabama — March 27, 2017

saanarally

The picture shows yesterday’s rally in Sanaa,Yemen where up to 1 million people were condemning the war Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and the U.S. have been waging on them for two years.

Nether the New York Times nor the Washington Post reported of the million strong rally. Both though reported widely of a 8,000 strong demonstration in Moscow led by the ultra-nationalist anti-semitic racist Alexey Navalny (vid). Navalny, who polls less than 1% in Russia, is their great and groundless hope to replace the Russian President Putin.

The war on Yemen was launched to show the manliness of the Saudi princes. Well, that may not be the proclaimed reason but it is the only one that makes sense. The U.S. takes part in the war because … well – no one knows:

The morning after that NSC news release was posted on the White House webpage two years ago, Gen. Lloyd J. Austin, commander of the U.S. Central Command, was asked about the objectives of the U.S. support. His stunning reply remains the most accurate characterization from a U.S. official: “I don’t currently know the specific goals and objectives of the Saudi campaign, and I would have to know that to be able to assess the likelihood of success.” Other than dropping weapons with an unconscionable lack of discrimination and proportionality, it appears there are no clear goals and objectives to this day.

The Saudis claim their coalition has dropped 90,000 bombs during the two year war. That are 123 bombs per day. 5 each and every hour for no good reason. It hasn’t helped them at all. The Houthi/Saleh alliance the Saudis fight claims (vid) to have destroyed 176 AFVs, 643 MRAPs, 147 MBTs, 12 Apaches, 20 drones, 4 aircraft. Additionally 109 tactical ballistic missiles were fired. Many of those (certainly exaggerated) Houth/Saleh successes happened on Saudi ground. Its southern desert does not protect Saudi Arabia, it opens it up to attacks.

The U.S. provides planing, intelligence, air-refueling and the ammunition for the Saudi bombing. Without U.S. support this war would not happen at all!

The United Nation claims that the death toll of the war is a mere 5,000. Others speak of 7-8,000. These numbers are laughable. One Saudi attack alone, a “double tap” on a Sanaa funeral hall, killed more than 800. The real death toll of the war is by now likely beyond 100,000. Especially in north-west Yemen, along the Saudi border, each and every Yemeni town and city has been bombed into ruins. Where are the people who once lived there?

The Saudis have simply threatened the UN that they will stop to provide any money for any of its relief efforts should it make any noise. The UN folded.

Yemen is starving. Even before the war 90% of Yemen’s staple food was imported. The Saudis have since bombed each and every food production facility, chicken farm and port. All larger bridges have been cut. There is no longer any way to import food into the capital Sanaa and the other areas the Saudis besiege. Too small official relief efforts are still running through the Hodeida port on the western coast. The port itself is controlled by the Houthi/Saudi alliance the Saudi want to eliminate. But the port is blockaded from the water side. The Saudis navy and airforce destroys all ship who try to enter or leave it. Some official relief ships are allowed to pass but they have difficulties to unload. All large cranes in the harbor have been destroyed by air attacks.

Still – to deliberately starve off all of the 17 million Yemenis who are “food insecure”, i.e. extremely hungry and nearly starved, the port needs to be closed down for good. That is why the UAE and the Saudi plan to invade, conquer and occupy it. The fighting about the port will be a good excuse to close it down for good until no one in Sanaa is left alive.

The Pentagon is now requesting a free hand to help the Saudis to conquer and occupy the Hodeida harbor. Why the U.S. would do this? Well – the reason is at least as good as the one given two years ago:

[I]f decisions are not made soon, the senior administration official said, “we’re afraid the situation” in Yemen may escalate, “and our partners may take action regardless. And we won’t have visibility, and we won’t be in a position to understand what it does to our counterterrorism operations.”

So if the U.S. does not “help” (i.e. organizes) to close down the last source of food for the millions besieged by the Saudis then it may not be able to understand what that means.

Now there is a really good reason to put boots on the ground! “Unless we do it, we will not know the consequences and that is something we would want to know, right?”

Diary reveals JFK doubted Hitler was really dead & predicted Nazi leader will ‘emerge from hatred’

Russia Today — March 25, 2017

Kennedy and quote. Click to enlarge

A young John F Kennedy once pondered over Adolf Hitler’s death, wondering whether the Nazi leader had really died or was still alive, according to a diary he kept while travelling through Europe in 1945.

The 28-year-old future president kept a 61-page diary of his experiences, which will be up for sale at RR Auction in April. Kennedy passed the diary to Deidre Henderson, who was his research assistant at the time he was a Senator.

The diary reveals that during his time in Berlin, Kennedy wrote about visiting Hitler’s bunker only months after Germany surrendered in the Second World War.

“The room where Hitler is supposed to have met his death showed scorched walls and traces of fire,” he wrote. “There is no complete evidence, however, that the body that was found was Hitler’s body.”

The Russians doubt that he is dead,” Kennedy added.

JFK was visiting Europe after a stint in the Navy.

After visiting Hitler’s mountaintop retreat, The Eagle’s Nest, the young Kennedy reflected on Hitler’s legacy in a manner that could be mistaken for admiration.

“You can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived,” he wrote. “He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him,” the future US president said. “He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”

RR Auction’s Bobby Livingston is certain Kennedy’s legend reference was not meant as admiration for the dictator, however. “He said that in reference to the mystery surrounding him and not the evil he represented,” he said.

“This exceptional diary sheds light on a side of John F. Kennedy seldom explored and confirms America’s enduring sense that he was one of the most qualified, intelligent and insightful commanders in chief in American history,” Livingston said.

Kennedy served as the 35th US President from January 1961 to November 22, 1963, the day he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

The diary, which is up for auction at RR Auction in Boston on April 26, is believed to be the only one he kept.

The diary also showed Kennedy expressed doubts about the role of the United Nations, writing, “In practice, I doubt that it will prove effective in the sense of its elaborate mechanics being frequently employed or vitally decisive in deterring war or peace.”

Those Disturbing Shrieks of Agony and the Rattling of Oxycontin Pills.

Reflections in a Petri Dish — March 27, 2017

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
Well… it looks like Israel will be reforming and streamlining the way the US government operates. This is probably fitting because they already control most United States policy, through the (lying in) State Department, their blackmail fueled and financial stranglehold on Congress and most other governmental agencies, especially the Department of Sexual Depravity and Progressive Decadence, as well as the Division of Gangsta Rap and the ‘ get laid in under 30 minutes or it’s free’ Pedophile Pizza, Drone Delivery System.
How is it that that the inarguable and blatantly obvious manipulation of material existence, goes on and on and on, with nary a whimper from those persistently and routinely violated to the degree that they can no longer sit down at all, unless they place a doughnut cushion beneath them first (exaggerated sigh, preceded by disturbing shrieks of agony and the rattling of Oxycontin pills, as they are poured from a plastic container into a trembling hand). Let’s see if I can find an analogy or a ‘by extension’ example for you…
Okay… as any regular visitor to these sites know, Visible is not a jersey wearing fan of Eckhart Toll-booth Tolle. He’s seen enough to be convinced about the motives and intentions of the fellow and his near equally expensive, escort-consort associate, Kim Eng. Chris Titmuss goes into his perspective on Tolle. None of the 3 sources just linked here are the example I am looking for. Of course we can study the details of origin for Jared Kuchner or the usual slum lord operations that are the bread and butter of Tribe enterprises, along with certain other business models that we have called attention to in these sites recently. The example we are looking for, to explain why people put up with the “ inarguable and blatantly obvious manipulation of material existence”, can be found in the comments at the Chris Titmuss site. You just scroll down for the first page of responses here and you will find the second page of responses at this location. You will find a few people who get the grasping, greed driven material excess taking place in Tolleton and then you will get plenty more who have all kinds of justifications for why it is perfectly okay for Tolle to be raking in the big bucks. This includes a reference to Osho’s 19 Rolls Royces but… as far I clearly remember, he had 99 Rolls Royces and I used to love looking at the pictures of his sannyasin bodyguards, who would run alongside whichever Rolls he was in, with their machine-guns at port arms. It made me nostalgic for the photos of the .50 caliber, Barrett machine-gun mounts, at Elizabeth Claire Prophet’s spiritual compound.
I stand back in suspended awe at the logic employed by these apologists for this kind of laissez faire perspective. Of course, laissez faire is generally used to define an economic policy/mindset but I am applying it here as a philosophical definer of the ‘anything goes’ variety. I am set to wondering if many of these ‘Tolle defenders at any cost’ are perhaps the same person, or representatives of the same conscious coalition of individuals that are employed by Tolle-House Industries …because the same eerie similarities of syntax and colloquial particularizations are there to be seen… it leads the mind to certain considerations… or it does me. I get certain ‘feelings’ and ‘leadings’ that make me highly suspicious when people come in with the appearance of arriving from a different location vector but are wearing the same uniform style of argument so… there might be something to that. However, I only want you to look at the justifications for it being okay to haul in boatloads of cash for what is advertised as priceless spiritual truth and how nearly all of them are saying the same thing and how most of it rings with that party line dialectic… often the same phrases, with only an occasional change in the sequencing of the words.
How is it that these “ obvious manipulation of material existence” gets a free pass from the American public? Of course there is a wide reach of collective stupidity in operation but I suspect that in the case of Tribe activities and Tolle-House Cookie cutter cheerleading enterprises and ANY large industry for the proliferation of shaped ideologies that there is a hidden army at work which orchestrates the general tone of it and which renders it acceptable and palatable to the tastes of the herd as they feed upon what is slurried into their troughs.
As I look back upon what I have wrought (or what has been wrought through me) here today, I must admit to a sensation of feeling rather ‘elegant’ so far (grin).
Yeah… (‘yeah’ is not so elegant), I suspect that there are some synchronized swimming displays going on, except that they are not being displayed but rather concealed from sight and only the effects are being experienced without any reference to the actual source of them.
When the high born marry one another, I get the impression that it is seldom by accident. Then when some of them are thrust into high profile positions of power, I presume no accident in this either. When serial plagiarists of the works of timeless masters find themselves on the crass media’s most widely watched television program and shamelessly praised as a source of spiritual originality, I wonder. I wonder about all of these things. When I see hideous Satanists like George Soros praised as a philanthropist, I wonder. When I see someone with no experience put at the head of the restructuring of the day to day operations of the most powerful nation in the world, I wonder. When I find that I am simultaneously watching the most atrocious big budget disaster I have seen in many a year, “Kong; Skull Island” (rated at 7.1 on IMDB) and I watch the last ten minutes of something that was agonizingly bad all the way through, get exponentially even worse, to the tune of “We’ll Meet Again” I wonder at how it was possible that someone paid $185,000,000 to ‘getter done’. I am not a movie director or screenwriter but I have not the shadow of a doubt that I could have done better; you could have too. It is past strange!!!
Now we have put on “Get Out” which is a miscegenation driven, mad scientist horror movie and I do not wonder about how this got done. Hollywood is past sold on their race agenda and surprise! Surprise… it’s financed by the same demographic that is doing PCP driven origami on the culture. Right from the getgo we have what looks like the man’s friend, or something (over the phone) making some reference to the white girl ‘licking his balls.’ I understand, the film has to do with killing black people and then I see it is presented as a black guy killing white people. Here’s a review from someone about this film. He says it is worse than ‘Django Unchained’ and I have only seen one film worse than that in years and it was ‘The Hateful Eight’ by the same director. I can already see the dialogue is filled with white liberal PC speak and every kind of pandering imaginable and this is only 17 minutes in. Ooops!!!!! The black guy sees a black maid in the kitchen; cue the eyebrows raised moment of awakening. Wow! Now we see a black gardener, more eyebrows raised!!! They must have been out of Mexicans. Never mind. I suppose my point is how it’s all a lead up to the coming race war. Now the white estate owner mentions how he would have voted for Man’s Country Obama for a third term and how he was the best president in his lifetime. It is something to see and it is going on right in front of my eyes!
I’m not going to degenerate into a fearmonger. I know what I see and what part of ‘their plans’ are at work. I have made up my mind about every position I will take and every posture I will assume. The ineffable is the be all and end all of my life and in all things may the will of the ineffable be done! Somehow, against all appearances to the contrary, I believe that the ineffable has a plan. It might be far reaching and we will certainly not see the end game in this lifetime but “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Of course, I suspect Paul said that and not Jesus Christ but I believe it no matter who said it.
As canny as any of our minds might be; no matter how clearly we may think we see and no matter how sharp is the quality of our reasoning capacity, I believe we see only ‘through a glass darkly.” There is much before us that can stimulate our paranoia. There are specters and premonitions that can shake our atavistic self and frighten us… cause us to shake in our shoes. I hear the marching tread of distant boots, thrumming on the road that comes out of the mist, which obscures the future as it rides up to our doors. I give none of this more than a cursory attentiveness. I pray that my love for the ineffable be increased beyond my ability to measure it. I pray that it consumes me. I pray that I might be transformed into a little child who dreams beneath the wings of overshadowing angels. I seek to sink back into the everlasting presence of the one who commands all things. It is no concern of mine anymore what appearances show, or what anyone might tell me about anything they think they see or believe to the contrary.
A few years ago, the ineffable said to me, over and over, while I was in Italy, “rely on me. Rely on me. Rely on me.” Over and over I heard this. I was told that states of awareness would only come if I did so. I was told that certain conditions could only come to pass when I had accomplished this to the desired level. I was told it would happen anyway, regardless, whether I resisted or applied myself to the limits of my capacity. I have wondered then, what difference it might make. I have come to believe that part of it only matters to me and I rest assured that it will come to pass as it was always meant to. I believe this is also true for every one of you who believe and aspire as do I and… of course, it could well happen, “in the twinkling of an eye.” For all we know, the wolf in the night will be bringing it, gently gripped in his jaws. This is the self same wolf who will come bearing each and everything destined for everyone. The metaphor might change but the result will be the same.
Walk in the consciousness of the presence of the ineffable. Speak with the ineffable all through your days. Walk with the ineffable. Commune in the wonderful tranquility of the ineffable, who exists in that timeless and inviolable light that is the composition of the being of the ineffable that makes it possible to see and hear and feel the ineffable, whose real being resides beyond the bandwidth of our capacity to register the ineffable. However it comes about; whatever the mysterious process might be… we are able to be aware of the ineffable. Rely… rely… rely on the ineffable…

Warning that Beijing’s military bases in South China Sea are ready for use

China has largely completed three major military bases in the South China Sea that have naval, air, radar and missile-defence facilities, according to a US thinktank.

“Beijing can now deploy military assets, including combat aircraft and mobile missile launchers, to the Spratly Islands at any time,” said the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI), part of Washington’s Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The thinktank published images taken this month of what it calls the “big three” island air bases – Subi, Mischief, and Fiery Cross reefs – which it has analysed via commercial high-resolution satellite imagery for two years.

“China’s three air bases in the Spratlys and another on Woody Island in the Paracels will allow Chinese military aircraft to operate over nearly the entire South China Sea,” AMTI said. “The same is true of China’s radar coverage.”

China denies it is militarising the South China Sea, which is thought to have significant oil and gas reserves and is a route for half of the world’s commercial shipping. The reclamation of the islands has also had a devastating impact on some of the world’s most biodiverse coral reefs.

Beijing asserts sovereignty over maritime areas that span 3.5m sq km but are also claimed by Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines and Japan. China’s military build-up has become one of the US president Donald Trump’s most explosive foreign policy challenges.

Under Barack Obama’s administration, Washington claimed it was neutral on the question of sovereignty over the South China Sea islets, reefs and shoals, but also conducted regular air and naval patrols to assert its rights of passage.

But the US secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, said in January that the US should go further by blocking Chinese access to the islands. Last week the Chinese premier, Li Keqiang, said defence equipment had been placed on islands to maintain “freedom of navigation”.

Chinese warships frequently radio US aircraft in the region, warning them not to approach. And last month a Chinese military aircraft had an “unsafe” encounter with a US navy surveillance aircraft over the area, the US Pacific command announced.

AMTI said China had installed HQ-9 surface-to-air missiles at one island as well as anti-ship cruise missiles. It had also built enough hangars for 72 combat aircraft and several larger bombers.

The group’s director, Greg Poling, said the images showed new radar antennas on Fiery Cross and Subi: “So look for deployments in the near future.”

KEVIN MACDONALD’S THE CULTURE OF CRITIQUE IS THE GROUNDBREAKING ANALYSIS OF JEWISH CULTURAL SUBVERSION
Jewish values and attitudes now constitute the culture of the West. Because of deep-seated Jewish hostility toward traditional Western  (i.e. Christian) culture, the founding peoples “have been made to feel deeply ashamed of their own history, surely the prelude to their demise as a culture and a people.”
My only reservation about MacDonald is that he doesn’t seem to recognize  or even care that Judaism is Satanism; and as far as I know, he never mentions Freemasonry.

by Henry Makow Ph.D. — (Updated from 27 June, 2003)

Kevin MacDonald book The Culture of Critique (2002) portrays the 20th century as a Jewish century.
A hundred years ago, Jews were an impoverished people living mostly in Eastern Europe surrounded by hostile populations. Today Israel is firmly established in the Middle East and Jews have become the wealthiest and most powerful elite in the United States and other Western countries.
More significantly, according to MacDonald, the Western intellectual world has become Judaized. Jewish values and attitudes now constitute the culture of the West. Because of deep-seated Jewish hostility toward traditional Western (i.e. Christian) culture, the founding peoples “have been made to feel deeply ashamed of their own history, surely the prelude to their demise as a culture and a people.” (lxix)
Specifically, Jewish organizations promote policies and ideologies aimed at undermining cultural cohesion while practising the opposite policies themselves. While they promote multiculturalism and internationalism in the West, they insist that Israel remain a racially pure national enclave for Jews.
“The present immigration policy essentially places the United States and other Western societies “in play” in an evolutionary sense which does not apply to other nations of the world,” MacDonald writes. “Notice that American Jews have no interest in proposing that immigration to Israel should be similarly multiethnic, or … threaten the hegemony of the Jews.” (323)

Orwell Rolls in Grave as Police Roll Out Unprecedented Drone Air Force to “Track Anti-Social Behaviour”

The Devon and Cornwall police force, tasked with the patrol of the largest geographical area in England, are pioneering perpetual drone surveillance by establishing an unprecedented 24-hour drone surveillance of its patrol area set to begin this summer.

The police drones, also identified as “unmanned aerial systems,” have undergone smaller tests last year. Multiple reports state that the drones will mostly be used for locating crime suspects and missing persons as well as surveillance of crime scenes.

Steve Barry, the UK’s National Police Chiefs’ Council spokesman regarding police drones, touted the cost savings of choosing these devices rather than deploying police helicopters; according to a report from The Daily Mail, Barry predicts “forces across Britain would soon be using them as they are cheaper than helicopters and can perform some duties of bobbies on the beat.” The does not specify how deeply these police drones will be able to inspect individuals, including in regards to audio capacity.

The Mail noted that Barry has pondered the possibility of drones replacing some officers and said “there may be an opportunity at some point in the future to rationalise what we need our cops to do because we find drones can do it more effectively and more cost-efficiently.” However, Barry did not indicate that he approves of a reduced police force in favor of the devices, and other officers and experts were quoted in the report as viewing drones as a supplement for police rather than their replacement.

Drones indeed have a unique ability to scope areas that officers cannot approach on foot.  A report published by the Cato Institute acknowledged that drones “allow police to investigate dangerous situations such as bomb threats and toxic spills.” These devices can seen as an advantage for civilians in peril, but they also serve as a troubling mechanism of undermining the personal privacy of a large population.

The Daily Mail highlighted how drones are useful for aerial footage of crime scenes, but also pointed to their use in monitoring “protests, sieges and football matches,” and noted that they “have been tested for use in terror attacks and to track anti-social behavior.”

The use of drones as a law enforcement tool has been taking place for years. Since the beginning, civil liberties advocates have warned of the consequences that heightened, innovative surveillance can unleash on the populace. Drones “deployed without proper regulation, drones equipped with facial recognition software, infrared technology, and speakers capable of monitoring personal conversations would cause unprecedented invasions of our privacy rights.

Interconnected drones could enable mass tracking of vehi­cles and people in wide areas. Tiny drones could go completely unnoticed while peering into the window of a home or place of worship,” the ACLU advises. While the 24-hour drone surveillance initiative is based in one large area of England and has yet to be introduced publicly in the United States, Cato cautions that the courts have yet to tackle drones and their capability to obstruct our Fourth Amendment.

The Devon and Cornwall police are currently recruiting a “drone manager” to oversee this new program. The law enforcement agency is also expressing confidence that this program will motivate police across the country to follow their lead. “‘I would not be at all surprised if other forces follow in due course – the question is not whether they will, it’s when,” Barry said.

‘Not if, WHEN!’ Experts warn devastating tsunami WILL hit Spain and Portugal

Katie Mansfield — Daily Express March 27, 2017

“La Gran Ola” warns the monster wave in the Gulf of Cadiz could devastate the coast of Huelva and Cadiz and leave more than 1,200 dead.

Unable to pinpoint the date of the tsunami, experts say alarm systems must be put in place in order to save lives.

The tsunami hotspot has been identified by experts, with the Gulf of Cadiz sitting on a major plate boundary posing a huge risk to coastal areas.

Begona Perez, Head of the Division of Oceanography of Spanish Ports, said: “The question is not whether there will be another tsunami, but when will it happen.”

Luis Matias, Researcher of Tectonic and Seismic Risk at the Dom Luiz Institute in Portugal, said: “In the Gulf of Cadiz, several faults could cause an earthquake any time.”

Spain-tsunami-784453The documentary warns Spain’s Andalusian Atlantic coasts are under threat of recurring tsunamis.

Director Fernando Arroyo suggests the Great Lisbon earthquake of 1755 which sparked a tsunami killing more than 10,000 people could be repeated.

He said: “The only reality is that no scientist in the world can claim that it will not be repeated in the short term because there are no indicators in the area.”

The director says if the tsunami was of a similar size of the Great Lisbon disaster the huge wave could travel for miles without hitting any obstacles for 20 minutes and cause huge devastation.

He said: “It would affect hundreds of thousands of people and cause very high economic losses.

“For days, large areas could not be evacuated, there would be no electricity, no communications, no water, and entire cities such as Cadiz would have to be evacuated.”

Maria Belon, a survivor of the devastating Boxing Day tsunami in 2004 whose story and family provided the inspiration for the film The Impossible, said: “That giant wave is already on its way. We don’t know when it will get here.”

Spanish officials are also urged to secure a warning system to save lives before the tsunami hits.

Mr Arroyo said: “What will happen when the tsunamis that in the past have ravaged the coasts of Spain and Portugal reoccur?

“Here, as in the Indian Ocean before 2004, we do not want to talk about this for fear of the consequences for tourism.”

He said Spain and Portugal must create “the best possible detection and alert system, because the current one does not confirm the arrival of a wave until it reaches the shore”.

Emilio Carreno, Director of the National Seismic Network said: “Some people won’t be saved because if you don’t have higher ground where you can go, you can’t do anything.”

Antonio Pazos, head of the Seismology Service of the Royal Navy Observatory: “If it happened, how many people would there be in the coast of Huelva and Cadiz?”

Mario Lopes, Professor at Technical Superior Institute in Lisbon, said: “Politicians know about the seismic risk and they know it can be reduced, but they do nothing.”

Russia builds an ‘unstoppable’ 4,600mph cruise missile

Chris Pleasance — Mail Online March 26, 2017

Artists impression of the hypersonic Zircon missle.

Artists impression of the hypersonic Zircon missle.

Russia has built a hypersonic missile capable of destroying an aircraft carrier with a single impact, it has been reported.

Kremlin chiefs claim to have constructed a Zircon cruise missile which travels between 3,800mph and 4,600mph – five to six times the speed of sound.

Experts warn the ‘unstoppable’ projectiles could spell disaster for the Navy’s new £6.2billion aircraft carriers, the HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.

Current Navy anti-missile defenses are only equipped to shoot down projectiles traveling 2,300mph, meaning they would be useless against the Zicron.

This would force aircraft carriers to anchor outside of their estimated 500 mile range

That would make it impossible for the carrier’s jets and helicopters to reach their target, carry out their mission, and return without running out of fuel – effectively rendering them useless

Pete Sandeman, a naval expert, told the Sunday People: ‘Defence against hypersonic missiles presents a huge challenge to surface ships.

‘There is so little time to react that even if detected, existing defences may be entirely inadequate.

‘Even if the missile is broken up or detonated by close-in weapons, the debris has so much kinetic energy that the ship may still be badly damaged.’

The weapon entered testing earlier this year, and could be fitted to nuclear-powered cruiser Pyotr Velikiy as soon as 2018, Russian state media reports.

It can be fired from land, sea and submarines carrying payloads ranging from high explosive to nuclear.

The Zicron uses Scramjet technology which mixes fuel with air and allows it to burn at hypersonic speeds.

That means the projectile can travel at astonishing speeds – covering 155 miles in 2.5 minutes, which is faster than a sniper’s bullet.

The setback is just the latest in a long line of problems with the Royal Navy’s new carriers after a report earlier this month found they were beset with technical issues, facing delays and could go over-budget

Flashback: Israel to pay students to defend it online

USA Today — August 13, 2013

1social_mediaIsrael is looking to hire university students to post pro-Israel messages on social media networks — without needing to identify themselves as government-linked, officials said Wednesday.

The Israeli prime minister’s office said in a statement that students on Israeli university campuses would receive full or partial scholarships to combat anti-Semitism and calls to boycott Israel online. It said students’ messages would parallel statements by government officials.

“This is a groundbreaking project aimed at strengthening Israeli national diplomacy and adapting it to changes in information consumption,” the statement said.

An Israeli official said Wednesday that scholarship recipients would be free to decide whether or not to identify themselves as part of the program, which would begin within months.

“Everyone who believes in the cause, and wants to join, can join,” he told The Associated Press. He said the office was looking to budget $778,000 for the project, and that the national Israeli student association would select participants from a pool of applicants.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity as the project is still under development and he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about it.

The Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz identified the official heading the project as Danny Seaman, a public diplomacy official who has written posts on his personal Facebook page which Haaretz described as being incendiary and anti-Muslim.

Haaretz posted what it said were four screen shots of his recent posts. In one of them, Seaman wrote: “Does the commencement of the fast of the Ramadan mean that Muslims will stop eating each other during the daytime?” In another, he uses profanity in a comment about the chief Palestinian peace negotiator.

The Israeli official said Seaman’s posts were “unacceptable and do not reflect the position of the Israeli government.” He said the national communications directorate in the Prime Minister’s Office had instructed Seaman to “immediately cease from making such pronouncements.”

Seaman declined comment, and the posts could no longer be seen on his Facebook profile on Wednesday.

The official from the prime minister’s office would not say whether Seaman would be the project’s director. Seaman, a former director of the Government Press Office, had a contentious relationship with the international media and banned Palestinians from receiving government press cards during his tenure.

Israel isn’t the only country to set up such a system. In China, members of the so-called “fifty cent army” sprinkle positive, pro-government messages across the web and social media.

Public image is also a paramount concern to Israeli officials. The prime minister’s office oversees a national initiative for “hasbara” — a Hebrew term that officials translate as public diplomacy and critics call propaganda. This initiative is intended to combat what officials see as popular discourse that goes beyond legitimate criticism of Israeli policies and constitutes hate speech that threatens the very legitimacy of Israel’s existence.

The Israeli army has set up an “Interactive Media” division of a few dozen soldiers tasked with spreading the army’s message on social media sites.

When Israel’s army launched an offensive on Gaza militants late last year, the Israeli government set up a “media bunker” with hundreds of young volunteers posting updates reflecting Israel’s point of view. Many Israelis believe the international news media are anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian.

At the time, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the volunteer media recruits in a video conference.

“We are (operating) on four fronts: The military front, the home front, the diplomatic front and the public diplomacy front,” Netanyahu said. “We must fight for the truth, for the facts, and your help is worth more than gold … refuting the industry of lies”.

The Secret Playbook of Internet Trolls

WashingtonsBlog — August 21, 2014

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
What’s confusing you
Is the nature of my game

– The Rolling Stones

What’s Confusing You Is the Nature of Their Game

The reason that Internet trolls are effective is that people still don’t understand their game.

There are 15 commonly-used trolling tactics to disrupt, misdirect and control internet discussions.

As one interesting example, trolls start flame wars because – according to two professors – swearing and name-calling shut down our ability to think and focus.

And trolls will often spew divisive attacks so that people argue against each other, instead of bad actions and policies of the powers-that-be.   For example, trolls will:

Start a religious war whenever possible using stereotypes like “all Jews are selfish”, “all Christians are crazy” or “all Muslims are terrorists”.

Yesterday, the alternative news site Common Dreams caught a troll using scores of different user names to spew anti-Semitic bile. (Common Dreams discovered that the same troll was behind the multiple user names by tracking their IP addresses. And the troll confessed to Common Dreams.)

The troll is a “a Jewish Harvard graduate in his thirties who was irritated by the website’s discussion of issues involving Israel”.

He posted anti-Semitic diatribes – such as Hitler should have finished the job and killed all Jews – using one alias.  Then – a couple of minutes later – he’d post an attack on the first poster using a different alias, claiming that criticism of Israel is the same thing as anti-Semitism.  (Note: Holocaust survivors and Israeli ministers say it’s not.)

Why would a Jew post vile anti-Semitic comments?  Because normal people are offended by – and don’t want to be associated with – pure, naked anti-Semitism, and so they will avoid such discussions.  If the discussion was originally criticizing a specific aspect of Israeli policy, the discussion will break down, and the actual point regarding policy will be lost.

Similarly, anti-Semitic posts weaken websites by making them seem less reputable. Indeed, Common Dreams says that the troll’s anti-Semitic comments drove away many of that site’s largest donors … dealing a severe blow to its continued viability. That’s exactly what trolls spewing anti-Semitic bile are trying to do: shut down logical discussion and discredit and weaken sites which allow rational criticism of policy.

It is well-known that foreign  governments and large companies troll online. See this, this this, and this. For example, the Israeli government is paying students to post pro-Israeli comments online.

And American students are also attempting to influence internet discussion.

While the Common Dreams troll claims that he’s not sponsored by the state of Israel, government  agencies have manipulated  Internet discussion for years. This includes the use of multiple “socket puppet” aliases.  The potential for mischief is stunning.

Unless we learn their game …

‘Someone is protecting Madeleine McCann’s kidnappers’ claims cop who spent years hunting her

Paul Byrne, Martin Fricker — Mirror.co.uk March 26, 2017

Madeleine McCann. Click to enlarge

Madeleine McCann. Click to enlarge

Someone is protecting Madeleine McCann ’s kidnappers, says a detective who hunted for her for three years.

As Kate McCann faced her 10th Mother’s Day without Maddie, retired Det Insp Dave Edgar broke his silence for the first time to open his files.

Revealing findings, that a child-sex gang most likely took the three-year-old, he said: “Someone knows what happened and it’s time they came forward.”

Mr Edgar believes an abductor has secretly confessed to the crime and, speaking for the first time since his three-year private investigation into the 2007 disappearance, he said one of those involved will have opened-up to a friend or relative.

Calling for an end to the agony of Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry, he pleaded: “If anyone confided in you, now is the time to come forward.”

One of the top experts on the case, he also believes:

  • There is no evidence to suggest Kate and Gerry were involved.
  • It was a well planned abduction.
  • There was no evidence against two prime suspects of abducting her from Praia Da Luz in May.
  • The motive for taking three-year-old Madeleine was sexual.
  • There is still hope she is alive.

When the Metropolitan Police took over the search in 2011, Mr Edgar handed his files to the force.

But he has kept in contact with the probe and believes a new appeal could finally solve it.

He said: “Someone knows, it must be on someone’s conscience, please come forward.”

After Madeleine vanished from the McCanns’ Warner Ocean Club holiday flat, while her parents were dining with friends, Portuguese police named Kate and Gerry as “arguidos” or suspects.

But Mr Edgar dismisses that, flying in the face of last week’s Lisbon court decision to uphold the right of Portuguese detective Goncalo Amaral to publish his book alleging Madeleine had died and the McCanns covered it up.

“I was looking at everything and that would include them,” he said.

“If I found any evidence against Kate and Gerry I would have given it to the police immediately. Kate and Gerry would expect no less. But I found no shred of evidence.

“We obviously look at all factors – motive, preparation, opportunity – and there was absolutely nothing.”

During his probe, paid for by the Find Madeleine Fund, Mr Edgar’s small team of investigators examined a number of potential suspects, including two of the most high profile names on the list, Raymond Hewlett and Euclides Monteiro.

Convicted UK paedophile Hewlett was living near the resort in 2007. He died, aged 64, of cancer in Germany in 2010.

Mr Edgar, 60, said: “He was high on the person of interest list as far as the press were concerned but he was someone who we just wanted to speak to and look at. In terms of fitting the profile, Hewlett would probably come as close as you would get to a main suspect.

But he added: “There was no hard and fast evidence because, if there had been, he would have been arrested.”

Monteiro, 40, a drug addict and ex Ocean Club worker, who died in a tractor accident in 2009, was also ruled out.

“Yes, he was a suspect but on the files that I saw there was no evidence that he was involved to the level that the Portuguese police thought” said Mr Edgar.

“My understanding is that they were convinced he had done it. They decided it was him. On what basis?”

So what did happen to Madeleine? Mr Edgar had a 30-year career with the RUC and Cheshire police and worked on high profile murder cases, including Shafilea Ahmed and Garry Newlove.

He has heard dozens of theories about Madeleine – that she had wandered off, and been run over, become the victim of a random burglar or taken by someone wanting to raise a child for themselves.

He believes it was a planned operation by a lone kidnapper or a gang.

He said: “There was a very narrow window of opportunity for them to get away with Madeleine. So it does point to it being planned and some level of surveillance, perhaps of the apartment.”

He added: “If the motive was gang-related child prostitution, there might have been more than one involved.”

And that’s where a breakthrough may come. He said: “They can’t keep it to themselves and research has shown they always confide in someone else.

“I think that someone else apart from the perpetrator knows and that is one of the best hopes of getting to the truth, that someone comes forward and says what they know.”

He says a cash reward, like those offered in the past, is unlikely to yield results, but an appeal to the heart might. Instead, he wants a police-backed European campaign.

“I’m talking about TV, posters, letters, text messages, new technology. We’re talking Europe. Get the message out there.”

He fears whoever was responsible will have struck again. He said: “It’s the type of crime they cannot help themselves, certainly if it was sexually motivated.”

Like millions of others, the retired detective clings to the hope that Madeleine is still alive, possibly being held prisoner and potentially still in Portugal.

There have been a number of cases where victims have emerged after being held in captivity for years.

“Until such time that a body is found it is a live investigation and there is always hope,” he said.

‘We see them as monsters. At least Israel makes normal, typical war': As Isis caliphate shrinks, Syrian anger grows

Robert Fisk — The Independent March 26, 2017

Syrian Army and Russian soldiers monitor as rebel fighters and their families evacuate Homs last week. Click to enlarge

Syrian Army and Russian soldiers monitor as rebel fighters and their families evacuate Homs last week. Click to enlarge

It must be the most beautiful front line in the world. Turn right at the ancient city of Qatna, drive east for 40 miles and you’ll come to a village called Telwared, the “Hill of Roses”. There are fields of yellow flowers, sheep and cattle and almond orchards and an old T-62 tank and then a series of largely empty, slightly sinister two-storey houses and a row of gentle hills to the south. That’s where Isis holds its ground, an ideology quite divorced from all this beauty and bright sky and sunlight.

They’re just the other side of the low mountain range to the south which stretches all the way across to Palmyra. But it’s difficult to shrug off the lethargy. Surely the old shepherd sitting with his back to the road, two cows tethered beside him, isn’t worried about the war. Can the children playing with their mother behind a red-painted house have the slightest idea why there’s a Syrian army checkpoint down the road at Jibl Jarrah, the very last bit of territory before the forward troops of the shrinking Isis caliphate?

The great geopolitical battles in Iraq seem far away until you notice the contrails sweeping the skies far above Jibl Jarrah and the military map in the local company headquarters which depicts three bleak grey and black circles to the right. “South al-Mushairfeh, east Habra, west Habra” are written in them. Isis holds these villages to this day.

On the highway driving out here, there were Russian military engineering convoys on the Palmyra run, heavy armoured vehicles between each truck, soldiers with cloth webbing draped from their helmets to their chins. Some of them wear Ray-Bans and you remember that this is also a European war, that these are Putin’s men, their equipment gleaming, their heavy machine guns pointed up the road.

You’d think the crusty Syrian colonel round the corner, billeted in an ancient shrine, would be watching the television news of the fighting for Mosul, the suicide bomb attacks on his Iraqi brother soldiers far to the east. Nothing of the sort. Isis mortared Jibl Jarrah a few hours ago. They send in artillery rounds each night. When their men captured and held the village for six hours on 21 January, the colonel managed to evacuate every civilian safely – but it cost the lives of three soldiers, another 12 in the neighbouring village of Mesaudia, and six members of the local “national guard” militia.

So much for the hill of roses. The colonel saw one of the Isis men who was captured on the road. “They send in Syrians first and then foreigners behind them,” he said. “Chechens and Afghans. He was a short man, blond-haired, about 19 or 20. He said he was from the village of Ankalhawa. He said they wanted to attack with waves of fighters. Fifteen at first, then maybe 200. They failed. Isis couldn’t operate here if they didn’t have Syrians with them. All of us grew up loving our homeland, but they’ve played on the sectarian question to turn these people into extremists.

“We never thought a Syrian would turn a gun against another Syrian but the Arab nations – Qatar, Saudi Arabia – they give them the money and ideology. This situation is very strange to us.”

As the colonel says repeatedly, most of the Isis men on the other side of these gentle hills are clearly not Syrians. Repeatedly, Syrian intelligence officers monitoring their radio chat find themselves listening to Dari (the Afghan version of Persian) and Chechen, which is meaningless to them.

The Syrian soldiers agree that they all talk about the motivation of these strange men. The colonel saw a lot of prisoners in Idlib. “I arrested a lot of Syrian fighters. Before this, I thought they were forced to fight; but when they were questioned, they said they believed in what they did.”

Deceptive, too, are the quiet roads leading west from Jibl Jarrah. You would never imagine that the blasted old building at Alamod was a school targeted by a suicide bomber two years ago. Thirty children were killed, all Shia Muslims, four from one family, the killer a Sunni Muslim. In Mukharam, there’s a pulverised building in the corner of the square, where another Sunni man, an Islamic student well known in the village, blew himself up among his neighbours just four months ago, wearing a suicide belt, waiting till market day to kill as many as possible.

No wonder the colonel, puffing away on his Armenian cigarettes – they say that Akhtamar cigarettes have to be smoked to be believed – is so puzzled. This web of villages, right up to the front line, has for years been a blaze of mixed religion so typical of Syria; Christians, Shiites, Alawites, Sunnis. Many people here are Sunni Circassians and the locals insist their white complexion comes from Russia generations ago. And looking at the young Russian soldiers on their Palmyra convoys, you can see a faint similarity.

The colonel kept shaking his head. “We see Isis as kind of monsters,” he said. “Even traditional enemies are more honest than these people. Killing pregnant women. Why would anyone do such a terrible thing? At least Israel makes normal, typical war.” The colonel wasn’t being kind to Syria’s traditional enemy. He merely hasn’t fathomed what lies behind Isis and he’s too far from Mosul to work out if his monsters are in their death throes.

But like as not – if any of them can get out of Mosul, or if the Iraqi army and Americans let them – Isis will move across to the lands east of Homs and try another attack on this all too beautiful front line.

Movie Review: “Get Out” is Jewish Parable of Goy Guilt

Henry Makow Ph.D. — March 26, 2017

movie taglineA critical and popular hit, “Get Out” is a “comedy horror” that is not funny. I didn’t crack a smile. As for horrifying, think of the death grip Masonic Jews have on  America’s mind.
(Movie tagline: “Just because you’re invited, doesn’t mean you’re welcome.”)

by Henry Makow Ph.D 

Despite being written and directed by Mad-TV veteran Jordan Peele, Get Out is a dreary cliche-ridden horror flick bereft of any humor or satire. It flogs the tired liberal-Jewish theme of white racism and black enslavement that, in this context, is somehow considered edgy and chic.

Jordan Peele

This movie is heralded as Peele’s debut as an astute social observer but it really marks his coming out as a modern day Uncle Tom. He will not be the first Negro or goy who sold out to the Illuminati for fame and fortune.
In the month since its release, this movie, which cost Blumhouse Productions  $4.5 million to make, has grossed $145 million  The Jewish hype machine has gone into overdrive. The Rotten Tomatoes critical consensus is 99% favorable; audience consensus is 98%.
Rotten Tomatoes: “Critics Consensus: Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride.”
Here is a sample of the fake news reaction.
“”Jordan Peele’s Get Out is the satirical horror movie we’ve been waiting for, a mash-up of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? and The Stepford Wives that’s more fun than either and more illuminating, too.” David Edelstein, Vulture
“Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless.” Peter Debruge, Variety
“Peele’s Get Out is a spectacular horror-comedy masterpiece that you have to see!” Geek Tyrant rating 10/10
