Tom Mysiewicz — The Unz Review May 30, 2019
The Mueller Report is done, and from the digest made public, its conclusion of no collusion to “fix” the last election by the Russian or “other” foreign governments does not surprise me. I agree with this conclusion. These foreign governments would, presumably, include Israel. However, in the case of Israel, I believe this may be a question of semantics.
There is, I believe, considerable evidence that non-governmental forces acting on behalf of Israel succeeded in placing an individual in charge of the U.S. who is currently redirecting the power and financial resources of the nation to almost entirely serve the interests of a foreign power. (And that entity is not Russia!)
There are numerous NGOs that act on behalf of Israel in the U.S., examples being CUFI, JINSA, AIPAC and the Chabad Lubbivitcher sect. There are many super-wealthy patrons of Israel and the Netanyahu government, such as Sheldon Adelson, that were involved in Trump’s election. Finally there are shadowy private Israeli contractors, such as those referred to by Cambridge Analytica’s Alexander Nix, and the so-called “Russian” mafia, which is reputedly controlled by individuals loyal to Israel. Trump apparently has had business proximity in the past to such entities and their bank.
First indication along these lines can be deduced from special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s indictment of General Michael Flynn
Flynn admits lying to FBI agents about his conversations with Sergey Kislyak, then-Russian Ambassador to the United States, in December 2016, when Trump was president-elect. Apparently acting on orders from Jared Kushner, Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law, Flynn contacted Kislyak to ask if Russia would delay or veto a UN Security Council vote criticizing Israeli settlements. It’s certainly a stretch to see how aiding and abetting actions illegal under international law would benefit the U.S. or Trump’s MAGA agenda.
Empirical evidence of the preceding and a good example of the type of Israelocentric policy making that came in with the election of Mr. Trump can be found in the book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.[2a] There author Michael Wolff relates an alleged conversation between former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Roger Ailes, the former CEO of Fox News. Bannon reportedly told Ailes that Trump, Bibi Netanyahu and Trump-Netanyahu backer Sheldon Adelson are in agreement with moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. The national interests of the U.S. and possible international ramifications of this act apparently were not considered.
Trump’s reaction to Bannon’s alleged statement: “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”
“Donald Trump is the Zionist water boy in the Oval Office. Trump’s collusion was never with the Russian government; it was always with the Bolshevik/Ashkenazi/Zionist mafia (the new Deep State) that has now ousted the old Clinton-Bush mafia (the old Deep State) from power. And that coup was stunningly successful and swift. Accordingly, Donald Trump has faithfully filled his administration with quintessential Zionist insiders—including Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Nikki Haley, Elliot Abrams, Gary Cohn, Steve Mnuchin, Wilbur Ross, David Friedman, Jared Kushner, et al.,” comments America’s most courageous evangelist, Chuck Baldwin, “God help us.”
MAGA—Make America Great Again—was widely believed to be a spontaneous outpouring of authentic nationalistic sentiment embodied by President Donald Trump. Trump’s election was initially welcomed by some countries as a government acting in the actual self-interest of the U.S. because it would be far more predictable than one acting for hidden interests. And Trump’s election, promising to reduce the footprint of the U.S. abroad, offered the hope of rolling back the push toward a world war.
Alas, much as was the case with the so-called “Arab Spring”, these hopes did not materialize and U.S. interventions overseas have grown. Often, these are somehow related to the interests of the Israeli state and its Likud government:
- Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal and placed new sanctions on Iran, in accordance with the wishes of Netanyahu and Sheldon Adelson. On April 22nd, for instance, oil prices jumped 3% as the Trump administration promised to remove sanction waivers on Iran oil—which had allowed countries such as India to continue buying Iranian oil—prompting threats from Iran to close the Straits of Hormuz for this violation of the nuclear disarmament treaty. American consumers could pay soaring prices on all their purchases for this act which demonstrably is connected to pre-election planning by backers of Israel with the Trump campaign. (Apparently fearing that this would cause a major rift with India, further alienate Turkey, and scuttle hopes of a trade agreement with China, Trump quietly reversed course to give these countries another year to comply, further demonstrating the Israelocentric monomania of the Neocon-Zionists vs. the actual interests of the U.S.)
- The ongoing negotiations with North Korea appear centered on its “giving up” Iranian nuclear and missile secrets—as well as destroying its own offensive missile capabilities–in return for normalization.
- Trump recently vetoed a bill to pull U.S. troops out of Yemen and their support of the Saudi aggression (apparently as part of a deal to have Saudi Arabia guarantee Arab support for Trump and Jared Kushner’s new Mid-East “peace plan”.)
- Trump’s promises of reducing involvement in Syria appear stalled and the U.S. continues the de facto support of he partition of Syria (A future Kurdistan may well become a part of Eretz Israel in the future—the Barzani brothers were trained by Israel and articles have appeared linking the Kurds to the genetics of the Israeli population) as well as the protection of the evacuation of key ISIS operatives.
- In South America, war is on the horizon as Neocons move to topple Venezuela—going so far as to name an alternative president. Venezuela’s heavy crude is key to diesel production and China has substantial claims on it (which might not be honored if they don’t play ball with Trump.) And the restructuring of South America may also play a role in the creation of a “New Israel” in Patagonia—a potential evacuation zone of Jews from Israel, the U.S., Canada and elsewhere in the event of war or national chaos–where Israeli operatives are reported to be extremely active.[4a]
- Meanwhile, President Trump has destroyed the last vestiges of international law relating to conquest of territory by aggressive warfare, as in the case of the 1967 Mideast War. He has ceded control of territory so seized (recognizing Israeli conquest of East Jerusalem and Syria’s Golan Heights) despite U.S. membership in the U.N., which was created to prevent such events in the future so as to make war less attractive. Was this done for any specific U.S. benefit? I think not. But it may have something to do with President Trump’s “fabulous” new Mideast peace plan that is similar to Bill Clinton’s fabulous new peace plan.
- Possibly to pressure Europe to support the redrawing of the Mid East, the Trump administration is expected to launch a tariff war with the EU starting this May. (This will apparently follow an expected superficial agreement with China during the same period.)
- And money for Israel has not been stinted either. Military aid for Israel apparently avoided the budget ax in Trump’s 2020 fiscal plan sent to Congress. It includes the full $3.3-billion in assistance promised under a 10-year memorandum of understanding, despite spending cuts in other sectors affecting American interests throughout the proposal.
While the interests of the Israeli ally have been thoroughly protected, in the economic sphere, Trump’s MAGA has been something of a train wreck for Trump’s populist supporters on main street. Their indebtedness has soared while the interest on savings (for the 40-something percent of those who have any) dropped to near zero. They got tax breaks that were temporary (as opposed to the massive permanent tax cuts for corporations who are often heavily indebted to large banks) and then, many learned they wouldn’t be getting their usual annual tax refunds due to quirks in the tax law—something that has hit the retail economy hard. Wall St. and the big banks have certainly prospered. U.S. Corporations were allowed to repatriate huge sums of money with no strings attached. And what did they do with this money? Did they invest in infrastructure, job training of Americans and building/retooling of factories as President Trump should have insisted? No, they used it for stock buybacks and acquisitions—mostly paper shuffling—that has kept the stock market propped up.
Trump’s tariff war, meanwhile, has imposed new costs on average Americans—not on the Chinese—with industrial production dropping or remaining flat and U.S. trade deficits soaring. The ham-handed imposition of tariffs without corresponding domestic industrial capacity may also have destroyed some of America’s backbone and staunch Trump supporters—farmers on small- and mid-sized farms. Large amounts of corn and soybeans were placed in silos awaiting the end of Trump’s “trade war”. These have mostly been destroyed by record flooding and are NOT covered by crop insurance. Many of these farmers will go bankrupt and big agribusiness may ultimately take over their land. (And the “farm bailouts” announced by Trump will mainly go to large farms and big agribusiness—including farms owned by Chinese interests!)
In a nutshell, Trump “jazzed” a brief economic recovery in the U.S. with massive tax cuts for big business and temporary cuts for voters (more bark than bite variety) while increasing the national debt, which these same overtaxed voters will ultimately be on the hook for. At the same time Trump “jawboned” the Federal Reserve to ease monetary policy so interest rates wouldn’t rise as a result of the vast increase in national indebtedness. He has laid the groundwork for eventual hyperinflation (or hyper-stagflation) that may well ruin more of his middle class voters after the 2020 election.
“Manufacturing production (in March—Ed.) was flat after dropping in January and February. In the first three months of the year, factory output fell at an annual rate of 1.1%. Production of cars, truck and auto parts dropped 2.5% in March and 4.5% over the past year.” The Cass Freight Index, a measure of truck shipments indicative of overall economic activity is down for the fourth consecutive month year-over-year. Sales of Class 8 trucks (18-wheelers) hit the ditch in January, with orders down 58 percent from a year ago hitting a level not seen since October 2016, near the end of the transportation recession, “when Class-8 truck orders had plunged to the lowest levels since 2009, and truck and engine manufacturers responded with layoffs,” writes Wolf Richter.
American businesses expanded in April at the slowest pace in 31 months, according to IHS Markit’s survey of business executives. IHS Markit’s flash PMI for services slipped to 52.9 from 55.3, while the manufacturing index was flat at 52.4. Any number over 50 signifies expansion. “The U.S. economy started the second quarter with its weakest expansion since mid-2016 as businesses reported a marked slowing in output, new orders and hiring,” said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at IHS Markit…”
“Manufacturing production has pivoted to the downside in the first quarter of the year, showing the revival in factories and output is sputtering for the first time since the Trump economics team took office,” said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at MUFG in New York. “The trade war and America First policies have not brought factories back home yet.”
What about immigration? While President Trump “talks the talk” he has failed to close the border as previous presidents have done and seems more interested in expanding the H1B program for large corporate interestsinstead of retraining Americans to fill at least some of the gap of necessary skills . He allows American soldiers to be captured and disarmed by the Mexican military inside U.S. borders (as happened recently without a proportionate response) and the rate of “catch and release” has soared due to lack of internment facilities. America is filled with unemployed (U6—the real unemployment rate—is 3 times higher than the publicized rate and many of the real jobs are part time and multiple jobs can be held by a single person), homeless and homeless camps, yet we need hordes of unskilled labor pouring into the country? Trump proposes to dump refugees in sanctuary cities, which sounds nice until one realizes that these cities will simply give the refugees tickets to go elsewhere in America. (This already happens in some places in the U.S. where indigents are given tickets to go elsewhere.)
The empirical evidence is therefore clear. Trump’s announced program vs. what he has actually delivered to nationalist voters who supported him is what a Hollywood Western town is to a real Western town: it is only a facade. (It should be remembered that Steve Bannon, one of the chief architects of the Trump victory, went from being a Goldman Sachs investment banker to being a Hollywood movie director!) The only plausible explanation? That the Neocon-Zionist power structure co-opted the authentic nationalist sentiments of Americans for their own ends and disguised this control with “Pepe”: a neo-Nazi green frog “front man” wearing a red “MAGA” ball cap. It stands to reason that such potent and capable forces are the real source of President Trump’s power.
Amazingly, Trump’s approval rating remains surprisingly high despite the outcome. Part of this may be the unwillingness of average people to believe their vote counted for nothing and they are heading for the same outcome as if Hillary Clinton had been elected. Then there is something called the Galileo gambit (also called the “Galileo fallacy.”) This informal logical fallacy is a way to convince listeners (or viewers) that a questionable leader (or his policies) are good despite evidence to the contrary. I believe this was accomplished using the Russian meddling meme and having the establishment media—widely distrusted by Trump supporters—pile on Trump. For, if the real intention had been to “get” Trump post election—and not make him a sympathetic character to the average American—an investigation would have focused on the “Russian” mafia and their banks, Israeli intel, Trump’s bankruptcies (and who got him out of them) and the Chabad Lubbavitcher sect. Does anyone really believe that a U.S. legislature that previously violated protocol and invited Bibi Netanyahu to the U.S. on its own—and then gave him more than 15 standing ovations—would impeach the man who gave Jerusalem and the Golan Heights to Israel? This is sheer nonsense–theater intended to sway the gullible public.
To make a case for the election of Trump being a soft takeover of the U.S., it’s necessary to examine how this might have been accomplished. It is child’s play to hack Diebold voting machines for which no paper trails exist. But due to the nature of such rigging it would likely be impossible to prove, say, a hypothesis that Hillary had some machines in key states rigged and “someone’s” black ops unrigged them. We also know one of Trump’s major backers, the Zionist Sheldon Adelson, is also the main backer of Netanyahu in Israel. In fact, Adelson even funds a major newspaper in Israel—Israel Today–that has helped keep Netanyahu in power. (The 85-year-old and his wife Miriam gave $82-million+ to Republicans and candidate Trump in 2016.) But, alas, this alone is not enough to account for the election upset (if that was what it was.)
America is pretty well divided by party and elections are typically very close. There is a block of Israeli-indoctrinated Pentecostal and “Christian Zionist” voters that could deliver 20% of votes. But many of these are already on the Republican rolls. In order for Trump to win, it would be necessary to swing a small percentage of disaffected white Americans from both parties. That small percentage (8%-10%) is now referred to as the “Alt Right.” And it is the Alt Right—comprised of voters who might otherwise not have voted in the election–that swung the election coupled with the divisive campaign of Hillary Clinton, which many middle class Americans found odious. (It must be remembered how quickly Trump backed off his “jail Hillary” meme at the conclusion of the election. Was this also play acting? It should be remembered that, during the 2016 campaign, Hillary had discussed creating a private non-monitored hotline to Netanyahu when she was elected)
So, we may start with the genesis of this Alt Right movement. Which was in Israel. Breitbart News, the flagship of the Alt Right movement and a mouthpiece for the Trump campaign (and the eventual nesting place of Steve Bannon) was actually started by a Jewish lawyer and businessman, Larry Solov.
In a 2015 post announcing the opening of Breitbart’s Jerusalem bureau, Solov wrote that Breitbart News itself was conceived of in Israel, when Solov traveled to the Israeli state with Andrew Breitbart, the now-deceased founder of Breitbart and met with him and Bibi Netanyahu in planning sessions. (There are pictures of this event.)
“One thing we specifically discussed that night was our desire to start a site that would be unapologetically pro-freedom and pro-Israel. We were sick of the anti-Israel bias of the mainstream media and J-Street,” he wrote.
Breitbart’s infatuation with Israel is eerily reminiscent of a similar situation in the 1930s. National Socialist propagandist Josef Goebbels ran a publication called the Algerminer in the 1930s prior to the Second World War. Goebbels was quite sympathetic to Zionist interests, sponsored a fact-finding trip to Palestine and had a commemorative coin issued in honor of this collaboration depicting a swastika on one side and a Jewish hexagram (“Mogen David”) on the obverse.
Subsequently, the so-called Transfer Agreement saw German Jews brought to Palestine on German ships.
Andrew Breitbart subsequently died—but not before Steve Bannon had him narrate one of his turgid Hollywood conservative documentaries and got on his and Larry Solov’s “good side.” Solov then tapped Bannon as Breitbart’s successor and brought him on to run the website—possibly also due to his links with the wealthy Mercer family. Bannon went on to transform Breitbart into the spearhead of Trump’s campaign to disaffected Americans vis a vis the Alt-Right. (Although Bannon was reputed in a divorce proceeding to have once made a comment about “whiny Jews,” he was given a kosheresque seal of approval by no less than the Israeli ambassador to the U.S.)
Bannon’s masterful use of Breitbart’s ideas and website pale in comparison with the impact of his creation of Cambridge Analytica in 2013 (with billionaire fund manager Robert Mercer) as a spinoff from Strategic Communications Laboratories (SCL.) SCL is a UK firm whose niche “specialties” were once described as psychological warfare, public diplomacy and influence operations.
For its part, Cambridge claimed that it believed GSR had abided by the UK Data Protection Act and, as soon as it found out this was not the case, terminated the data and deleted the information. And that, after being paid $6.2-million by the Trump campaign, none of the consent-less data was used to elect Trump. (Reuters relates that the N.Y. Times interviewed half a dozen former employees and contractors and reviewed documents and records and claimed these indicate Cambridge retained the data and did use the data. Facebook, after receiving information that 270,000 people had downloaded Kogan’s app and that data obtained without consent had not been deleted, then banned Cambridge Analytica and Wylie from using its platform.)
What is even more disturbing is that foreign players may also have been involved in the 2016 election. While Cambridge Analytica and its parent SCL ceased operations on May 2nd, 2018 (possibly to stymie investigations as to the extent of its activities for the Trump campaign and foreign governments) that cessation came after its former CEO Alexander Nix had some interesting things to say when recorded by TV Channel 4 with a hidden camera while making a sales presentation. In addition to the usual allusions to prostitutes, shady characters, blackmail and the like, Nix carelessly “…boasted of his ability to employ “Israeli companies” to gather intelligence on politicians…Nix then went on to praise the ability of “Israeli” intelligence personnel in what can only be described as a power sales pitch to a would-be client.”
Like Bannon with his revelations to Wolff, Nix had gone too far and was quickly sacked pending an investigation. Had he committed the unforgivable sin of speaking the truth in an insecure venue??? According to a statement put out by CA at the time:
“In the view of the Board, Mr. Nix’s recent comments secretly recorded by Channel 4 and other allegations do not represent the values or operations of the firm and his suspension reflects the seriousness with which we view this violation. We have asked Dr. Alexander Tayler to serve as acting CEO while an independent investigation is launched to review those comments and allegations.”
Much like exploding armor on tanks, Trump seemingly uses associates and then fires them to deflect criticism when they become compromised. In the case of the massive Cambridge data breach and its possible use to swing the election, Steve Bannon fared no better than General Flynn.
After Bannon’s departure from the White House, quoting McClatchy Washington Bureau: “…Bannon sold his stake in Cambridge Analytica–the controversial data firm Donald Trump’s campaign employed to reach voters with hyper-targeted online messaging–in April, as required by his ethics requirement. But Bannon only notified the government of the sale in November, three months after he had left the White House and one month after McClatchy asked him if he still had an interest in the company. He was fined for the late report about the sale…Bannon was supposed to sell his $1 million to $5 million stake in Cambridge Analytica while he served in the administration as part of his ethics agreement, but it was never clear until now if he had done so…Under Federal law, late filers such as Bannon are fined $200. However, while the fine is small only a tiny percentage of such government-required reports are filed late. Obviously, most reports are timely filed because tardy filing could be an indication of some misfeasance or malfeasance.
 United States of America vs. Michael T. Flynn, Violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1001
In a plea agreement, Flynn admitted that he had lied to Justice Dept. investigators, with regard to a resolution submitted by Egypt to the UNSC concerning sanctions on Israel for illegal settlement construction in Palestinian areas, he contacted the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. on December 22nd, 2016 at the behest of a “very senior member of Trump’s transition team” (believed to be Jared Kushner—Ed.) and requested Russia vote against the resolution or at least delay it. He met again with the Russian Ambassador on December 23rd and was informed Russia would not comply if the resolution came to a vote. https://www.justice.gov/file/1015126/download

 Baldwin further adds that (in addition to the Kushners—Ed.) Trump’s association with Jewish mafia billionaires…is easily documented. I’m talking about men such as Alexander Mashkevich, Tevfik Arif (not Jewish by birth but a strong Zionist), Felix Henry Sater and Lev Avnerovich Leviev. Look them up for yourself. Jewish Zionist Wilbur Ross (Bilderberg), whom Trump appointed as Secretary of Commerce, was one of the Jewish billionaire Rothschild bankers who bailed Trump out of one of his bankruptcies. “Donald Trump, John Hagee, Zionism And The Chabad,” by Chuck Baldwin, February 14, 2019

 Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, in 2016 praised President-elect Donald Trump as a “true friend of Israel” and said he looks forward to working with incoming White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. “Israel has no doubt that President-elect Trump is a true friend of Israel…”
 According to testimony given to British lawmakers by a company whistle blower, Christopher Wylie, Cambridge Analytica was founded by billionaire Robert Mercer and Steve Bannon.
In other words, Bannon was likely a kingpin and not just a bit player in what transpired—and probably the real reason he had to leave the White House. “Trump and Brexit: Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower Gives Bombshell Testimony to British Lawmakers,” by Pam and Russ Martens, Wall Street on Parade, 27 March 2018

 Are Cambridge Analytica and SCL Group attempting to evade recent negative coverage, only to re-form and continue their work as part of a new entity? “The news Wednesday about the closure of Cambridge Analytica does not mention Emerdata or its subsidiary Firecrest Technologies…All of the other UK SCL-related companies are still listed as active and have no pending filings….
The business purpose of Emerdata is not known, beyond the general description of “data processing, hosting and related activities”. However, in a channel 4 News report, the SCL Group founder, Nigel Oakes, said it was his understanding that Emerdata was set up to acquire all of Cambridge Analytica and SCL.
