    I love the words, music, and soul of my Israeli-born truth jihadi brother Gilad Atzmon. In fact, I enjoy his company so much that just about every year I take up the largely thankless task of organizing a public event for him here in Israeli-occupied Madison, Wisconsin. Last year the local Israeli Occupation forces got...
  • America, sadly has a tradition of persecution its dissident citizens. So, for the historical record, I would like to introduce (in sections if allowed to do so) the WWII (made from his residence in Italy) speeches by none other than Ezra Pound (recall Eustace Mullins learned most of what he published from Ezra Pound)

    Thank you, tac, for posting the Ezra Pound speeches.
  • Coming up is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. In 2016, a survey showed that 52 percent of the British public thought that Apollo missions were faked. Skepticism is highest among those who were too young to see it live on TV: 73 percent of aged 25-34 believe we didn’t land on...
  • @Anonymous
    That you are agitated and not on your meds is obvious** but it appears you are muddled as well. A review of WoZ comments suggests you are thinking of some other Commenter when you refer to "scientific and peer review". Not once that I can see and anyway none relevant. Perhaps you are confused also because of your ignorance of the legal notion of expert evidence. (It means courts can ignore opinions like yours and other uneducated shouters and accept opinions only from real experts - and even then subject to testing crossexamination).

    You cap the absurdity by suggesting the WoZ moniker conceals a Jew or even Israel supporter. But that's OK I don't imagine any offence will be taken at your proof that nothing you say about a Commenter can be believed.

    **excuse the use of the sacred nutters' word generally used of matters in truth really complex about 9/11, USS Liberty or JFK assassination....

    Hey, you are one ignorant idiot to boot!take your meds and take them plenty….so you’ll have afterthoughts soon after!

    Just remember what traitors like YOU receive in the end?

    And your answer to your being called out on your foolish bluster is?
  • @Ron Unz

    Ron, With all due humility, I was 45 years ahead of you on JFK, 15 years ahead of you on 9/11, and maybe five years ahead of you on the Holocaust....So since it takes you on the average about 25 years to catch up with me on these issues, I predict that you will start to doubt the moon landings story in 2034.
     
    Actually, I think the example you describe are extremely different, both in my own case and generally.

    First, with regard to those other "conspiracy theories" it's not that I had previously looked into them and found them wanting, it's that I never paid any attention to them. As I eventually discovered that numerous prominent and credible people believed them, I gradually became more and more suspicious and finally read various persuasive books on the subject that provided copious strong evidence.

    For example, I was absolutely shocked 15-odd years ago when I learned that a couple of reasonably credible people believed that the Holocaust was all a hoax, and that made me somewhat suspicious. Over the years, I gradually came across numerous other highly-credible skeptics, and eventually decided to look into it by reading some of the very detailed books on the subject, all written by serious academics, historians, and other scholars, which seemed quite convincing.

    The Moon Hoax situation is entirely different. The Moon Hoax advocates claim the Official Story is obviously scientifically impossible. Okay, but if that's the case, why can't they provide the name of a single reputable scientist in related areas who has publicly declared that he agrees with them? Just about the only supporters seem to be anonymous conspiracy-activists apparently lacking any scientific or engineering background who point to photographs with squiggly lines as their major proof, or maybe cryptic messages secretly embedded in old Stanley Kubrick films.

    I started to become suspicious about 9/11 when I discovered that just a couple of years after the attacks, a high-ranking former CIA official wrote an article saying he'd looked into some of the evidence and thought that the official story made absolutely no sense and seemed impossible. He'd been in charge of 200 CIA analysts, being exactly the sort of person a president would have normally consulted after a 9/11-type attack. Similarly, an anti-Truther friend of mine mentioned that a very highly-regarded former French Defense Minister had privately said the same thing to top French media and political elites. All sorts of recognized experts have taken that position. Maybe they're all mistaken, but I do think their views should be treated seriously.

    A few alleged discrepancies here or there won't do it. What the Moon Hoax people need to do is produce a sufficiently strong scientific case that at least half a dozen highly regarded astrophysicists or aeronautical engineers are willing to publicly declare that the official lunar landing story was scientically impossible (and I'm not talking about incompetent TV celebrities like that deGrasse Tyson fellow). Then I'll take them seriously.

    I'm not really surprised that at least some of the most energetic Moon Hoax commenters on this thread also seem to be "Nuke Hoax" people, claiming that nuclear weapons are also a hoax, presumably along with nuclear reactors, nuclear power plants, and nuclear submarines. Given our crazy government leaders, I'd very much like to believe they're correct about the non-existence of nuclear weapons, but I just can't.

    The apparently substantial overlap between Moon Hoax people and Nuke Hoax people seems quite suggestive to me...

    What is need to be known about Einstein?:

    The nuke hoax and flat earth theories are self-evidently absurd.
     
    Well, based on the responses and earlier comments, I'd guess that something like one-third of the more energetic Moon Hoax people are also Nuke Hoax people, and perhaps a somewhat lower percentage are Masonic/Cold War Hoax people. There's also at least one apparent Flat Earther. So I'd say that you have your debunking work cut out for you...

    My rule of thumb is generally to disregard these sorts of massive "conspiracy theories" until I see that at least a few highly-credible individuals or perhaps a substantial group of Ph.D.s have publicly endorsed them. And reasonably well-written published books impress me much more random websites or personal videos.

    After all, one could suggest an infinitude of such possible---and mutually contradictory---"conspiracy theories," and it's important to maintain some sort of reasonable filter lest too much time be wasted on likely nonsense.

    Ron, you are such a coward! Only reputable people would be sufficient to inform you. What if they intended to lie–much like the COWARDS that they truly are!–in the first place?

    I’ve opened my mind to people who contribute to the discussion with facts–or at least the way they seem them.

    In WWII EXACTLY HOW many prominent scientists/engineers/doctors have made an opposing statement in the matter? NONE! Why? because they are ALL COWARDS…not worthy of any opinion, much less ‘courage’.

    That you are agitated and not on your meds is obvious** but it appears you are muddled as well. A review of WoZ comments suggests you are thinking of some other Commenter when you refer to "scientific and peer review". Not once that I can see and anyway none relevant. Perhaps you are confused also because of your ignorance of the legal notion of expert evidence. (It means courts can ignore opinions like yours and other uneducated shouters and accept opinions only from real experts - and even then subject to testing crossexamination).

    You cap the absurdity by suggesting the WoZ moniker conceals a Jew or even Israel supporter. But that's OK I don't imagine any offence will be taken at your proof that nothing you say about a Commenter can be believed.

    Presumably you are referring to some European cases where people have jailed for blasphemy on the Holocaust but does that have to do with an Australian obviously very concerned about injustices to individuals even in Common Law countries trying people with juries? And what, with the study you imply that you have given, can you say to justify the words you have shouted in CAPS? What interests? What group? You claim to have read the WoZ stuff so you shouldn't try and wriggle out of proving that you are not just careless and abusive when you think someone disagrees with you.

    I’ve stated and responded to: WoZ’s vacuous assertions and his/hers demand for scientific and peer review, nonetheless, WoZ has not ONCE–not a SINGLE TIME–demanded nor expressed such scrutiny when it comes to the WWI & WWII ‘review’ of the so-called ‘history’ of the mater! I wonder why? because WoZ is a hasbara sayanim: a FRAUD of epic proportions! IOW: WoZ is simply an (((Australian))) supremacist [yet that is somehow in doubt, given the myriad of lies and non-sequesters, deflections or outright denials] much like that of (((Trump))) in the US.

    If you would like the proof presented of the many aspects of the holocau$$$t simply look back at my posts (especially against WoZ and in early 2018) and then you’ll be witness to what I’ve stated now.

    Sorry, when I said back-and-forth it did not mean to the vehicle, but to the place to where the subject of the photo was in the vicinity of.

    The so-called ‘photographer’ never seems to look back at his subject for the best perspective to take a HISTORIC picture of (while walking away and in front of him to get the perfect shot) judging by the footprints. Simple nonchalant footprints without a second thought to the HISTORICAL nature of the event.

    A lot of people believe that Stanley Kubrick directed the "fake" Moon landing, drawing on his experience making 2001: A Space Odyssey. There is even a thoroughly debunked video of an imposter posing as Kubrick admitting this. They even go so far as to say that making 2001 was part of the whole plan.

    This is what the Moon looked like in 2001:

    https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/images/ic/976x549_b/p02cpx0p.jpg

    This is what it looked like to the crew of Apollo 16:

    https://static.independent.co.uk/s3fs-public/thumbnails/image/2015/11/02/14/Nasa-Charles-Duke.jpg?w968h681

    If Kubrick made both and made both to fool the public, why do they look so different?

    Keep putting up the pictures (and Ron can LOL all he wants), but can you (or Ron for that matter) answer a few points of contention in the bottom so-called ‘Apollo Mission’ picture you’ve presented?

    1)
    Trace the footprints from the ‘astronaut’ back. …all seems fine with ALTERNATING footsteps in the fore ground until in veers off picture to the right …. (but ladies and gentlemen do continue to trace the so-called footsteps ALL the way back to the lunar vehicle?) Do you notice a pattern in the background as these ‘footsteps’ re-emerge? HINT: Do they alternate now? NO THEY DO NOT! Now, instead they follow a hop-pattern (like a bunny–with both feet next to each other at EVERY interval)! Do, however, continue to laugh, but do also ZOOM-IN!

    2)
    There are TWO ‘astronauts’ in this photo: an ‘photographer’ AND the ‘subject’ of the photograph. CAN you or LOL RON show us EXACTLY two distinctive foot patterns from the lunar vehicle all the way to the ‘photo shoot’???

    LOL…Ron…I’ve noticed you’ve managed to simply skip or disregard my direct question to you previously in this thread….will you answer, or will you simply post a LOL according to your preconceived belief?

    How about back-and-forth foot patterns from both? LOL! They had to go back

    That I've come to the debate late hardly affects the relevance, truth, cogency, or logic of what I wrote.

    At least you've done better than utu, who was so utterly incapable of dealing with a fact-based argument that he resorted to the TROLL button, a convenient way the less intelligent have for dealing with challenges to their fantasies.

    I'll give those, who believe the lunar landing was faked, a head start in ridding themselves of this delusion:

    Such individuals should conduct Google searches on: "ham radio operators and the Apollo missions" and on "amateur astronomers and the Apollo missions". Then sample all the decades of information, going back to the first missions to the Moon, and confirming the direct observation of the Apollo missions by tens of thousands of independent observers scattered all around the globe.

    I hope I will have assisted some in ridding themselves of a sad and rather pathetic delusion.

    Can you tell us exactly what the so-called “amateur astronomers” OBSERVED beyond take-off and flight into low-Earth orbit? Were they plotting the trajectory and OBSERVING those inflection points at expected time intervals with their telescopes, or were they glued to their telescope continuously spinning around following the path around the Earth’s orbit and the entire trajectory to the moon confirming the flight patterns? Or where they simply listening to what was RELAYED to them as described by NASA?

    But wait for it…you’ve been ‘honored’ with a golden outline for WHAT EXACTLY? Who do you think you’re foolin’? Congratulations it is akin to Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.

    But better yet the ‘impeccable’ voice of proof, peer review, and need of a qualified witness in a courtroom before a judge and a jury finally decides to chime in: WoZ, the only caveat–ONLY WHEN IT SERVES HIM AND HIS GROUP’S interests….How about it WoZ, can we finally apply those same stringent requirements that you constantly whine about to the areas where people are jailed for simply trying to apply scientific principles to ‘historical EVENTS’???

    There are many problems with the photos produced by NASA, but the most compelling for me are the imprints of tire tracks from ‘moon’ rover, inconsistencies in the footprints (pattern, distance relative to each other, and absence at times where there should have been), shadows cast, illogical reflections from the visors of some of the astronauts (based not only on the supposed objects that should have been there, or unexplained ones in some instances, but also the number of astronauts present given the group), and defects, cracks in the lunar modules.

    I’ve seen photos of the lunar vehicle that has chevron (to halves of 45 degree angled that converge on the tires, yet the imprints in the dirt the vehicle supposedly traveled on are somehow parallel ***cannot seem to find on internet anymore, but I’ll continue to locate and post if I find it again.

    They ones still on the net (Notice: I’ve just encountered some of these photos, yet whenever they are present, many have inconsistencies–even if viewed for the first time–arise almost immediately. ***Note: many of the photos made available on NASA’s official Apollo website have been removed or simply cropped so the previously mentioned inconsistencies are removed***):

    1)

    Notice the tracks are visible from the behind the rear tires, but notice the absence of tire tracks in between the front and rear tires (Pay very close attention to the marks directly behind the contact surface of the rear tires and compare that to the absence of those behind the front tires). Don’t be afraid to zoom in! There are other inconsitencies, like the clear difference in foreground surface and background mountain (front-screen projection–a Kubrick specialty)

    Here’s another one:

    2)

    Notice a set nice of outlined footprints just behind and to the right (from his perceptive). Also notice the American flag behind and to the right, yet there are NO visible footprints anywhere near that flag. So how did the flag plant itself into the dirt? (Also front-screen projection here and an unexplained reflection in the visor and no visible reflection of the astronaut in the reflection who is taking this photo)

    Just compare the #2 pic to this and notice the abundance of foot prints present in this one:

    3)

    Notice the lack of tire tracks again (We are looking at the rear of the vehicle were tracks should be present–especially on the right side of the vehicle (rear and front both) where light is abundant). The shadows of the vehicle and the inconsistent pattern one would expect–especially looking the astronauts visor (half dark and half light along the horizontal axis)

    Will the intrepid Ron Unz respond to my challenge? What say you? No, worries …. there’s more ….

  • tac says:

    I’ve heard almost all what was presented in this article before, and after still ongoing analysis, and after so many red flags, I too am almost certain that there were no manned missions to the Apollo space program. Couple other points to add to the article as well as further links for the reader’s own research.

    Manned missions never went past 500 miles above Earth orbit (low-Earth orbit) because of the Van Allen radiation belts that start at 1000 miles above Earth and extend to ~26,000 miles above Earth. There is enough evidence to prove that the Apollo Moon missions were filmed on Earth and reproduced as ‘Manned Moon landings’ in a Hollywood like studio conditions. There are myriad of photo/video inconsistencies from the Apollo missions to prove they are frauds, but one has to have an open mind and investigate. It takes 1.3 secs for sound to travel one-way to the moon and then another 1.3 secs to travel back to the Earth. On at least three occasions from the Apollo missions the recorded communication between Astronauts and mission control is UNDER 2.6 secs (***not including the time to process the questions in the human mind before producing and answer). Thus a 4 secs delay would be considered normal.

    Friends still send me copies of some of the more remarkable verbiage that spurts from Belmont, and I note that Welch, perhaps on instructions, no longer has much to say about the “Communist Conspiracy,” and, after flirting with the notion of reactivating Weishaupt’s diabolic llluminati, seems to have settled on the conveniently nameless and raceless “Insiders” as the architects of all evil, inspired by an unexplained malevolence. The principal purpose, aside from keeping the members in a revenue-producing excitement, is to make certain that their chaste minds are insulated against a wicked temptation not to love their enemies. The pronouncements from Belmont are of some slight interest, since one may be sure that the B’nai Birch are told only what has been approved by the B’nal B’rith. In addition to the Bulletin, often called the “Welch Belch” by bored members, the Society still publishes American Opinion and the Review of the News, for which very competent journalists are hired to write under Jewish supervision, and both periodicals contain some authentic information that is not found in the New York Times, since they are censored for distribution to a different audience.

    Second, how predictable was the sign of bad manners characteristic for chosenites when they can be anonymous in a company with non-chosenites. Your supposedly "exquisite" humor has an Israeli flavor of superiority.
    This Muslim woman Omar did indeed hurt your feelings...

    Speaking of worshiping Jews, tell that to Trump. Here is his latest response to the Ilham Omar and his categorization and disappointment at a lack of a ‘stronger’ response to [perceived] it. It seems that there is a contest between Demos vs Repubs at who can out-grovel then next for more pronounced outcry. They can do nothing the for US citizens–AND NEVER IN UNISON, but boy do the act unison and within a day or two for Zio-Jewish interests! That should tell you all you need to know:

  • Ilhan Omar has been in office two months — and she’s already done more for America than most of ‘our’ white, Christian, male representatives.

    That’s pathetic.

    This whole episode works out nicely for the Israel/Zionist lobby. Now it appears to the man in the street that the only opposition to Israel comes from a dingbat Minnesota Muslim lady who "married" her brother so he could come to the US.

    https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2019/03/01/trump-national-security-council-225442

    ''During the brief Flynn era, NSC staffers were shocked when two men who said they were associates of Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, showed up at NSC offices in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, wearing badges that indicated someone in the West Wing had let them on the White House grounds.
    They came with a 10-point plan for how the United States could turn Venezuela’s strongman president, Nicolas Maduro, into a U.S. stooge. The basics, according to people familiar with the incident, were as follows: The U.S. would release two nephews of Venezuela’s first lady who were in prison on drug charges; in exchange, Venezuela would free a young American man it had imprisoned on dubious weapons charges; then, Trump would meet with Maduro and the two would hash out some sort of arrangement where the U.S. would lift sanctions on the country’s kleptocratic government in exchange for unfettered access by American companies to the oil-rich Venezuelan market.
    The entire pitch appeared to be “a pretext for this great business opportunity for them,” one person familiar with the incident said.
    To prove their bona fides, the men — Gentry Beach and Wadie Habboush — called Venezuela’s foreign minister in front of the NSC staffers, leaving a voicemail, and showed a picture of themselves with Maduro, another person familiar with the episode said. “They pulled out a picture of them hugging Maduro. They were like, ‘Yeah, we were in Venezuela two weeks ago.’ And they were all doing the Trump thumbs-up sign,” the person said. The incident, details of which were first reported by Mic, so rattled the NSC staffers that they immediately reported it to the institution’s legal officers. One of the staffers was so alarmed at what he was being asked to consider that he drafted a resignation letter. The men pitching the idea even managed to get a meeting with Bannon.
    Habboush and Beach did not reply to messages from POLITICO. Their plan, however, was not adopted. Even Bannon, known for his unconventional views, was hesitant, and besides, from the start, Trump harbored an antipathy toward Maduro, whom he recently decided to no longer recognize as Venezuela’s president''

    "What is your take on the reason/necessity to use basement nuclear bombs? "

    Thanks for your courteous reply. Please believe that I have an open mind about how 9/11 was practically executed: the collapse of WTC7 makes it totally obvious that controlled demolition was utilised, so all the rest are just details.

    When the planning application was made for the construction of the WTC towers, the architects and civil designers had to provide a detailed means of demolishing them once the constructions become obsolete (a building's lifetime is typically 100 years maximum). It sounds crazy today, but in the 60's, it was completely normal and fashionable to use nuclear explosions for non-military purposes: civil works, fracking, creating a new Panama Canal, you name it ..
    Between them, the USA and USSR carried out at least respectfully 27 and 127 Peaceful Nuclear Explosions (PNE's) between 1957 to 1989:

    https://www.wired.com/images_blogs/wiredscience/images/2009/04/09/nukecrater.jpg

    Please bear in mind that there is nothing comparable to a nuclear explosion in equivalent kilotons.
    The reason why the 9/11 masterminds had to use nuclear bombs is because if this is what the designers had previously calculated as necessary to demolish the towers, then using any weaker explosive would have risked resulting in partially demolished buildings with lots of forensic evidence of controlled demolition. In other terms, the demolition had to be right first -time, so they could not deviate from the design.

    Now regarding the evidence that nuclear explosives were used, they are evident to somebody with a physics background because of at least 3 physical manifestations that cannot be explained by any other cause:

    - 1-Temperatures generating molten steel for over 3 months: it is just impossible to obtain such effect, in the open air, for such duration, unless adding fuel. The comparatively tiny WTC was cooling down by transmitting heat by radiation, convection and conduction to the infinite and much colder atmosphere surrounding it. This process would never have taken 3 months . Unless there was a massive amount of heat trapped underground and slowly dissipating mostly by conduction.

    -2- The seismic shock recorded by several witnesses standing in different locations, that took place before the South Tower's perfectly-timed collapse. The time gap between the seismic shock and the collapse was identical on all videos. This is due to the well-established phenomenology of underground nuclear explosions: the blast first causes a cavity, which roof collapses only after a few minutes (in hard/granitic terrain).
    Again, the several minutes-gap between the ground shaking and the tower collapsing can correspond only to a nuclear underground explosion.

    -3- The volcanic aspect of the WTC foundations remaining once they had been cleared. There never was volcanos in this geographical area. The only possible explanation is an explosion powerful enough to melt the bedrock. An A bomb only can do that.

    The idea that nuclear bombs were used to kill innocent people is revolting, scary, desperating, but it is most likely what actually happened . I can provide many sources of information if you want to research the subject further. Kind regards.

    Thank you for that reply. I am not convinced thus far, but do, if you would like, provide additional material so that I can study it and take it into consideration. If what you provide has any merit to what you claim I will notify you in future postings as such.

    No fire, let alone office fires, can burn in the open, for over 3 months (dixit Rudy Giuliani), producing "molten steel" (dixit NY firemen) with a finite quantity of fuel.

    This is basic thermodynamics, very basic stuff one learns in first year of physics /science / engineering university curricula.

    http://www2.ae911truth.org/images/infoitems/IRimages.jpg

    The WTC, in addition to the use of military-grade nanothermite , was detonated with underground nuclear explosions that were considered at a very early stage in the 60's as part of the construction application.

    The Talmudists crushing the American people have blown up 3000+ defenceless individuals in the heart of Manhattan with nuclear bombs. This is the truth.

    I agree with most of what you say, but to me nuclear bomb blasts in the basement of WTC1 & 2 have no necessity in order to accomplish this and, more importantly, judging by the way the two building fell (blown-up in sections in a top-down matter)–in stark contrast to WTC7, which was blown from bottom with gravity doing the rest of the work in classical building demo fashion–what would be the need to use nuclear bombs in the basement? The concrete, steel, and other organic material was pulverized section-by-section as their remains where ejected laterally as the towers were coming down. There were certainly ‘conventional’ bombs/explosions in the basements to weaken the structure–as is visually and by way of witness statements proven beyond doubt–, but judging by the way the building progressively fell section-by-section in a top-down fashion there would be no practical reason, nor is there any visual evidence in the way those building fell to suspect the scenario which you describe (i.e. nuclear explosion in the basement of WTC1 & 2). What is your take on the reason/necessity to use basement nuclear bombs? As far as I’m concerned I see none. The long-lasting high temperatures could have alternative explanations.

    Dear Brothers & Sisters,

    I for one pause (in awe) to consider how in < 1/2 century, Israel became an Imperial & nuclear weaponized world power. Not too shabby, eh?

    No doubt, having toppled the US government by the terrorist-hit on President JFK, November 1963, was a huge OPERATIONAL step for Jewkingdom, and afterward, The Lobby advanced & formally made the US 'guvmint its rubber-stamp preserve for Israeli purposes.😖

    Clearly, I predict even our uniquely strong U.R.-commenter, Desert Fox, would be persuaded to "gallows" marvel at the diabolical strategies & successful Zionist Jew advantages reaped since Israel became an (outlaw😕) state, 1949.

    In conclusion, linked below & fyr, is a follow up article on the Pilgrims progress of Israeli "Genie oil" of New Jersey.

To direct north of my position was Israeli military forces. In middle was UN peacekeeping deployment. Was to say the least, a troubling vision! 😢 Upon having returned to my "Homeland," Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982, killed 20,000 innocents, and the Reagan administration did not provide "humanitarian" military intervention to stop them.🤔

    Bolton to Netanyahu: We have the best US-Israel relations in history

    Less than a week ago, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reaffirmed to Netanyahu that the US would stand by Israel’s side and that its commitment to the “protection” of the Jewish state remains unchanged despite its planned withdrawal from neighboring Syria.
    […]
    Notably, the first bill to be rolled out by the US Senate in 2019 is aimed at protecting Israel from boycotts. Meanwhile, Tel Aviv apparently sees the present situation as a good moment to further its interests and solidify its grip over the Golan Heights, which it seized from Syria back in 1967.

    I'd also like to know how you determined that Greeks are lazy or do you just assume that they're like most Americans?

    LOL, the muricans–the very dumb, self-absorbed, distracted idiots who simply believe what they are told by the media–and Wally has the nerve to call Greeks lazy and somehow stupid? Newsflash: the banker ZOG austerity measures placed on the Greeks are currently making their way through the EU (simply look at the UK, Gilets Jaunes, Italy, etc), Canada, Australia and the US!

    It has and will affect the rest of us …. are we all just lazy and stupid? The answer is quite evident: until some great awakening, absent of bombs (even nuclear ones) raining down on US cities, doubt muricans will pay attention to foreign policy [They’re too busy by the fake deep state vs Trump theatre] that makes murica/Srael hated more and more as time passes.

    For example, for quite some time Blumenthal went along supporting the Zio-US propaganda line in Syria, all with "opposition" and "rebels" fighting evil Assad.
    Until he finally "discovered" the truth and changed his position completely.

He, along with the other contributors to the GreyZoneProject site are certainly doing a great job [thus far] in exposing the lies and propaganda in Venezuela. I have corroborated their stories with that of others’ and so far they check out. Their expose on Juan Guaido was exceptional.

The offended parties (notably Vanessa Beeley and Sharmine Narwani) may not be satisfied until and unless they get a profuse apology - and rightly so. (And Max should bow in shame to Alison Weir.) But he claims to have explained himself, somewhere or other, so maybe we should forgive.

    The people being eviscerated here are living in the American bubble and believed what they were being told until they fought through it to find their own position on Syria. They should be commended for it. The only legitimate criticism is that they apparently have not explained the process that led them to change their position, though Rania has on Facebook at least. They should be celebrated for eventually breaking from the pack, which takes no small amount of courage living in the U.S. Fire should be directed at those who still push the U.S. narrative.

He says that the produce is “sold well-below market value,” adding that the prices appear to be quite affordable for locals as well.

    Maduro, for all his faults, turned out not to be a coward. He defies the hysterical empire. In contrast, self-proclaimed “president” Guano is a coward: he is afraid even to be in Venezuela, ran away to Columbia.

    Yes, after so many attempts at the lives of both Chavez and Maduro by the Evil Empire, it is a testament of courage to stare down one’s own nemesis and live to tell the tale about it. Certainly Maduro has many faults–as any elected leader does–but he certainly did not take his fortunes and disappear to exile, as he was threatened to do, much like Chavez.

    If Guaido steps foot back in to Venezuela he faces a 30-year jail term. In reality, however, one can easily make an argument that he deserves to be hanged as a traitor to his ‘fellow countrymen’ for colluding with a foreign power that is only interested in plundering the country’s natural resources.

    Funny that Guaido claimed that he would personally lead the aid convoys across the border, yet when push came to shove he made a token appearance and then disappeared to his bunker to watch the events unfold.

    The Jewish State (under Bibi's leadership) has been providing Israel-made rifles to neo-Nazis in Ukraine; the deliveries have been going on under the watchful eye of the ethnically Jewish Ukrainian prime minister Groisman. At the same time, the 52 main Jewish American organizations have been successful in blocking the anti-neo-Nazi Amendment proposed by Conyers.

    This is a scandal of biblical proportions, considering the holo-biz extortions and demonization of Germany and Poland by the Jewish thugs and hypocrites of all calibers.

    What triggered the escalation of US-Venezuela policy?
    For two decades the US was powerless to alter the course of Venezuela’s socialist rule. But, in recent weeks Trump has turned the screws on the Maduro regime. So, what changed? How a casual meeting at Trump Tower and a photo op at the White House, dovetailed with the evolving crisis inside Venezuela

    Two days after taking office in January 2017 President Donald Trump surprised White House staff by asking for a briefing on Venezuela. At the time, Fernando Cutz was on the National Security Council staff as the President's Director for South America.
    “For whatever reason, and honestly I don’t know what the reason was, but President Trump started on Day One, literally on Day One, asking about Venezuela. So, it was a priority of his from the very start,” Cutz told a forum at the Wilson Center, a Washington think tank, after he left government last year.

    Cutz didn’t know, but the seed was planted a few days before Trump’s inauguration during a casual meeting at Trump Tower in New York. Trump had invited some South Florida friends to pay him a visit, among them Freddy Balsera, a Cuban American Democrat, who represented the real estate mogul on several South Florida golf projects.
    During the meeting, Trump asked Balsera for some advice on what South Floridians would like to see from his presidency, according to witnesses. Balsera mentioned taking a tougher line on the Maduro regime in Venezuela, adding it would have bipartisan support and could make for a good foreign policy victory
    The president’s son-in-law and close advisor, Jared Kushner, was in the room and his ears picked up, the sources said. Balsera told Trump and Kushner about Venezuela’s most famous political prisoner: Leopoldo Lopez. And he had a suggestion: “You should meet with his wife, Lilian Tintori,” he said.
    That’s precisely what happened a few weeks later, courtesy of another Cuban American - a Republican this time - Senator Marco Rubio

    Rubio’s influence has also grown since that White House visit with Lilian Tintori. Despite calling him ‘Little Marco’ during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump has now taken to heaping President Donald Trump has lately taken to heaping praise on his former presidential rival

    “I do listen a lot to Senator Rubio on Venezuela, it’s close to his heart,” Trump told a small group of reporters representing regional news outlets last month.

    Rubio was also instrumental in bringing into the government some key Cuban Americans; Mauricio Claver-Carone at the NSC. Another John Barsa, is awaiting confirmation to lead USAID’s operations in Latin America. Claver-Carone is a longtime activist on Cuba policy and staunch backer of the economic embargo against Havana’s communist government]

    Otto Reich, another conservative Cuban American and former U.S. Ambassador to Venezuela says the Trump administration clearly has Cuba in its sights.
    "I think that what they are preparing in the government is first of all to use the fall of the Venezuelan dictatorship that has financed so much violence and subversion in the hemisphere, to later bring about changes, transitions in Cuba and Nicaragua,"


    White House to appoint Cuba hardliner to head Latin America policy
    Mauricio Claver-Carone, a vocal critic of the Obama administration’s engagement with Cuba, is taking over as the National Security Council’s influential director for Latin America policy.

    Robert Kraft Was Charged For Soliciting A Prostitute. What Does Judaism Say About Prostitution?
    February 22, 2019

    Robert Kraft, the billionaire owner of the Patriots and a major Jewish philanthropist, was charged on Friday in a prostitution sting in South Florida. Kraft, who is 77, was charged on two counts of soliciting prostitution along with 24 other people. Police say that incidents in which Kraft solicited prostitution were caught on hidden cameras.
    Kraft was awarded the 2019 Genesis Prize this year, which recognizes Jews for extraordinary works, and gives winners $1 million to distribute to causes as they see fit. Kraft, who succeeds last year’s wildly contentious winner Natalie Portman, is still set to distribute the prize money to causes that will “combat anti-Semitism, efforts at de-legitimization of Israel,” according to the prize’s website
    Interestingly, prostitution is legal in Israel. Simultaneously, Israel has a massive sex trafficking problem.

    The very term 'anti-Semitism' should be drummed out of the English language. Its conceptual framework is a linguistic trick based on dubious testimony, biased interpretation, and compromised historiography.

    'Anti-Semitic theory' is highly-politicized, self-serving collection of myths and half-truths. Bad guys: virulent anti-Semites. Good guys: innocent kosher underdogs. Yet Jewish-concocted, anti-Semitic theory has engulfed Western civilization. It has become a tyrannical force that has been used to destroy entire nations while holding others captive.

    Here at home, anti-Semitic theory functions as a gag order on Free Speech. This empowers Jews as it undermines the liberty of gentiles.

    The actual phenomena that Jews call 'anti-Semitism' should be renamed either 'anti-Jewishness' (this at least is straightforward) or 'counter-Semitism' (for those who are willing to play semantic games). At the very least, there's a yin and yang to this conflict, though Jews will not concede as much.

    Keep in mind that 'anti-Semitism' has little or nothing to do with prejudice directed at ethnic Semites. The inappropriate imposition of that term ('Semite') is a calculated ploy.

    Meanwhile, with rising 'anti-Semitism' as their backdrop, Jews get to study the evil goyim without guilt or apology. When will we get to return the favor?

    What is it about Jewish conduct that causes so much friction in the larger world? Anything substantial?

    Sure looks that way.

    Isn't it time we examined it?--Openly.

    Why not expand the analysis? Let the debates begin!

    Why not talk about it, pro and con?

    Why? Because powerful Jews don't want an open or evenhanded exploration of the ceaseless conflicts that have occurred between Jews and gentiles through the ages.

    An open examination would reveal complexity, forbidden history. It would also undermine Jewish authority. Zionist power could crumble.

    So, with anti-Semitic theory in a dominant position, Jews expect silence and submission from their goyish critics. And they get it. For now.

    In the meantime, the charge of 'anti-Semitism' remains a powerful and calculated smear--more damaging than the various offensive words that have been made magically taboo over the past half century. So watch what you say, white man.

    Their basic message to us us this: Shut the fuck up. Don't talk back.

    Meanwhile, the (global) 'Jewish community' remains wedded to the faux concept of anti-Semitism since it gives them authority, safety, identity, and privilege. 'Anti-Semitic theory' functions as a deflection mechanism. Critics (of Jews) get smeared. Jews on the other hand get an automatic free 'Get out of Jail' card as well as higher marks on the Holocaust Survivor victim meter.

    Meanwhile, informed and legitimate disdain for Jewish malfeasance has nowhere to go.

    Jews have re-packaged appropriate and understandable anti-Jewish sentiment into something that it is not: a psychiatric disorder born from prejudice that afflicts envious and troubled gentiles who then resort to political 'extremism'.

    That's the official explanation. They consider it 'settled science'.

    Jewish experts on this subject expect us to believe that our critical perception of Zionist criminality is born from prejudice ('anti-Semitism').

    This kosher paradigm is devious, self-serving, and manufactured.

    Embrace your anti-Jewish sentiment, my friends. It is well-earned and well-deserved.

    Unchecked Jewish criminality is a real. Zionist aggression is pressing threat to international law and world order. It has thoroughly contaminated the Western world.

    Consider Zio-Washington's irrational reaction to non-existent Iranian nuclear weapons while Israel enjoys a ready arsenal of nuclear bombs and the means to deliver them. Oh, and there's still the messy issue of Palestine.

    Hello?

    If you're not at least a little bit 'anti-Jewish' (and anti-Zionist) at this time then you're either clueless or part of the problem.

    Greater Israel has become a fountainhead of lethal political malfeasance. And these kosher darlings happen to enjoy untoward influence wherever they nest.

    But there are cracks in the Zionist wall. A hard rain is gonna fall.

    Yes there are cracks in the Zionist wall which will only get wider in due time, but before that inevitability catches up to reality, things will get only harder for the goyim. Nonetheless, we must continue with this virtuous, righteous and inevitable struggle much like that of the Palestinian resistance–for if not fought will valor it will be us who will end up consumed in the precarious position of the present and long-lasting Palestinian conundrum.

    We are united, in the aftermath of a bloodthirsty birth of the Zionist entity–with unscrupulous determination for its own survival, prominence, and dominance at the expense of all others willing to stop at nothing in achieving these aims–to defend our own civilizations from extinction much like that of the epoch of Western civilizations namely that of the Greeks and Romans. There comes a time when one must either make a stand or fall into the dustbin of history and irrelevance. What will history reflect upon this period?!?!

    Meanwhile in France, in the wake of Gilets Jaunes Acte XIV:

    1. There is a perfectly good word in the English language for mindless or unfounded prejudice.
    The word is "bigotry." A person who exhibits such behavior is a bigot.
    To my mind, we do not need "special" words to describe ostensibly "special" forms of bigotry.
    If you mean anti-Jewish prejudice, or anti-Hindu prejudice, or anti-any-other-group prejudice, just say so.
    2. That said, not all prejudice is unfounded, nor is all prejudice (i.e., pre-judging) absolute and unyielding. Example: I have a close friend who dislikes Chinese businessmen, based on his experience working in the computer industry. Based on his experience (ymmv) , he regards Chinese business people to be clannish and untrustworthy. He does not like them, in that context. On the other hand, this same man taught school for 10 years in a community with a large Asian population, and he readily and unhesitatingly brags up the achievements of his Chinese-American students. Oh, yeah, my friend is a mischling (Jewish father, Methodist mother). So we have the interesting situation of ein halb Judische Amerikaner who dislikes oriental business people. Somewhat ironic, at least to me..
    3. "Semitic" is a category of languages:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitic_languages

    The most widely spoken Semitic languages today are (numbers given are for native speakers only) Arabic (300 million),[7] Amharic (22 million),[8] Tigrinya (7 million),[9] Hebrew (~5 million native/L1 speakers),[10] Tigre (~1.05 million), Aramaic (575,000 to 1 million largely Assyrian fluent speakers)[11][12][13] and Maltese (483,000 speakers).[14]
     
    It seems logical to me to call anyone who comes from a culture which speaks one of the semitic languages a "Semite." Thus, an "anti-Semite" would denote anyone who dislikes or is prejudiced against all of these people, or their cultures. Using the term "anti-Semitic" to denote only "anti-Jewish" is either a) ignorant, or b) itself "anti-Semitic," because in the latter case it implies that, of creatures which speak a Semitic language, only the Jews are human.
    Which side are you on?

    Yes, there are cracks opening up.....they are scattered around and we have to look for them.
    The Jews have clogged up US courts for decades, using us to sue everyone on earth, now the Palestines have wised up and are suing back. If they can avoid a Jewish judge hearing their case they have a good chance.

    Here's one example:

    Palestinian Lawsuit Alleging Genocidal Plot From Adelson And Other Mega-Donors Revived
    February 20, 2019 By Ari Feldman

    ''A U.S. appeals court has ruled that a billion dollar lawsuit accusing Sheldon Adelson and other major pro-Israel donors’ participation in alleged war crimes may proceed, Reuters reported.
    The suit, brought by Palestinian and Palestinian-American plaintiffs, alleges that Adelson and the other defendants are co-conspirators in a plot to remove non-Jews from Israel’s occupied territories and aid in alleged war crimes committed by Israel, including genocide. The defendants include the Jewish billionaires Haim Saban and Larry Ellison; former national security advisor Elliott Abrams; the prominent nonprofit Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces; two Israeli banks; as well as multiple other nonprofits and construction firms.


    A 3-0 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit reversed a judge’s August 2017 ruling that the case could not be decided in U.S. courts because it directly related to U.S. foreign policy in the region.

    The judge that dismissed the case had said that it was “close to the heart of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and central to the United States’ foreign policy decision-making in the region,” and thus that it was “inappropriate” for her to rule on it.

    But in Tuesday’s decision, a judge for the appeals court said there was only one political element of the suit: the question of sovereignty in the territories occupied by Israel. She said that the case can therefore be decided “without touching the sovereignty question, if it concluded that Israeli settlers are committing genocide.”
    The suit is being brought under the Alien Tort Statute, which allows U.S. courts to hear suits brought by defendants claiming that U.S. citizens have breached international law. ''

  • Maduro announced the closing of the border between Venezuela and Brazil today, and is considering closing the border with Colombia. The border with Colombia, especially at Colombian town of Cucuta (where the infamous images of tankers blocking the bridge–that was NEVER opened in the first place, but the MSM left that part out conveniently–were constantly cycled in the news) should be of particular interest since that is where most of the ‘humanitarian aid’ is parked to be delivered on 23rd of February. What is noteworthy is that one day before on the 22nd of February there is a scheduled Live aid concert, organized by Richard Branson, set to take place with up to 300K attendees in a town of 700K. That event could be a natural opportunity to set off a false-flag event, an opportunity of smuggle weapons and mercenaries, or be used as a Trojan Horse for an invasion (with that many attendees serving as cover). Here is a video of the venue and its proximity to the border (i.e. it is literally on the bridge):

    The opposition is made up of a number of parties in a coalition (one of which Guaido is the ‘leader’ of) against the Maduro Government; incidentally Guaido’s term (the opposition coalition cycles through different leaders of opposition parties as the current acting President for a short acting term) as acting President of the opposition expires on 23rd of February so after this date inferring to him as the ‘President’ without that duplicitous cover will become hard. So it seems that the Evil Empire will be forced to act by this date to try and install a unconstitutionally selected puppet; the only question is to what extent!

Bush," began Omar. "I fail to understand why members of this committee or the American people should find any testimony that you give today to be truthful."

    "If I could respond to that..." interjected Abrams.

    "It was not a question," shot back Omar.

    After a brief exchange in which Abrams protested "It was not right!" Omar cut Abrams off, saying "Thank you for your participation."

    Imagine this psychopath’s ((Elliot Abrams’)) mindset to be instrumental in the cover-up–all the while holding up the holocau$$$t card in peoples’ faces of unspeakable brutality against his tribe–of unspeakable atrocities by his sponsored and paid for Kaibiles–especially that of small children–that this vile creature still walks and is somehow in charge of ‘humanitarian’ mission in Venezuela now:

    In October 1982, guerrillas ambushed an army convoy near Palestina, in the vicinity of Dos Erres. They killed 21 soldiers and took 19 rifles. On 4 December, a contingent of 58 Kaibiles (the elite special forces commandos of the Guatemalan Army) was flown into the area. The following day, they received orders to disguise themselves as guerrillas, deploy to Dos Erres and kill the inhabitants, who were considered guerrilla sympathizers. Dressed as guerrillas, the Kaibiles arrived in the hamlet at 02:30 hrs on 6 December. They forced the inhabitants out of their homes, corralling the men in the schoolhouse and the women and children in the hamlet’s two churches. A subsequent search uncovered no sign of weapons or guerrilla propaganda. At 06:00, officers consulted superiors by radio, then informed the commandos they would be “vaccinating” the inhabitants after breakfast.[1]

    In the early afternoon, the Kaibiles separated out the children, and began killing them. They bashed the smallest children’s heads against walls and trees, and killed the older ones with hammer blows to the head. Their bodies were dumped in a well. Next, the commandos interrogated the men and women one by one, then shot or bashed them with the hammer, and dumped them in the well. They raped women and girls, and ripped the fetuses out of pregnant women. The massacre continued throughout 7 December. On the morning of 8 December, as the Kaibiles were preparing to leave, another 15 persons, among them children, arrived in the hamlet. With the well already full, they took the newcomers to a location half an hour away, then shot all but two of them. They kept two teenage girls for the next few days, raping them repeatedly and finally strangling them.

    The problem is the politicians are the ones that would have to do it and they aren’t going to do it because they benefit from it.
     
    True enough. So, that’s when Step 2 kicks in where, I believe it was your idea that, constituents call out their representatives as TRAITORS if they refuse to introduce campaign finance reform that removes the Zionist yoke from around their necks.

    Game plan:

    Step 1: Constituents demand pubic money for public elections

    If their representatives refuse to support this initiative:

    Step 2: call them TRAITOR in public

    Rinse and repeat.

    Agree…..I have called them traitors in my mails and faxes and phone calls to them.
    What can they do about it if I stand in the middle of one of their campaign speeches and call them a traitor….they can do nothing about it.

  • The “Act.IL” organization, which is coordinated and backed by Israel’s so-called Ministry of Strategic Affairs, had used a troll army to spread false information about Jeremy Corbyn – the leader of the UK’s official opposition party.

    Whitson commented, “Why is this #Israel interference in domestic UK politics acceptable? Is it only a problem when Russia does this?”

    But predictably, Israel’s propagandists attacked the article as “anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”

    What Whitson’s attackers refused to address was the substance of the report. Instead, they falsely accused her of spreading “anti-Semitism.”

    This is a deliberate tactic to distract from how Israel interferes in domestic UK politics – and indeed around the world.

    “Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House. “And I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

    Whenever a sordid socialistic regime rises then collapses they are sure to receive suport by the enlightened Russians, Cubans, Chinese, Nicaraguans, North Koreans, etc., etc. America and the West are flawed nations without a doubt but the totalitarians are repulsive.

    Who gets to decide the leadership of a sovereign country? The US Empire?!? How many times over the last twenty years has the CIA tried to assassinate Chavez and then Maduro (see the links I’ve provided up thread)? I see you explicitly included the countries Bolton deemed as the so-called ‘Troika-of-tyranny’. Face it, your puppet Guiado has NO leg to stand on:

    A few weeks before on January 5, Guaidó had been selected as president of Venezuela’s National Assembly, their unicameral legislature. He had been elected to the assembly from a coastal district with 26% of the vote. It was his party’s turn for the presidency of the body, and he was hand-picked for the position. Guaidó, even within his own party, was not in the top leadership.

    Guaidó’s party, Popular Will, is a far-right marginal group whose most enthusiastic boosters are John Bolton, Elliott Abrams, and Mike Pompeo. Popular Will had adopted a strategy of regime change by extra-parliamentary means rather than engage in the democratic electoral process and had not participated in recent Venezuelan elections.

    Although anointed by Trump and company, Guaidó’s Popular Will Party is not representative of the “Venezuelan opposition,” which is a fractious bunch whose hatred of Maduro is only matched by their abhorrence of each other. Leading opposition candidate Henri Falcón, who ran against Maduro in 2018 on a neoliberal austerity platform, had been vehemently opposed by Popular Will who demanded that he join their US-backed boycott of the election.

    The Venezuelan news outlet, Ultimas Noticias, reported that prominent opposition politician Henrique Capriles, who had run against Maduro in 2013, “affirmed during an interview that the majority of opposition parties did not agree with the self-swearing in of Juan Guaidó as interim president of the country.” Claudio Fermin, president of the party Solutions for Venezuela, wrote “we believe in the vote, in dialogue, we believe in coming to an understanding, we believe Venezuelans need to part ways with the extremist sectors that only offer hatred, revenge, lynching.” Key opposition governor of the State of Táchira, Laidy Gómez, has rejected Guaidó’s support of intervention by the US, warning that it “would generate death of Venezuelans.”
    […]
    The Guaidó/Trump cabal’s fig leaf for legitimacy is based on the bogus argument that Article 233 of the Venezuelan constitution gives the National Assembly the power to declare a national president’s “abandonment” of the office. In which case, the president of the National Assembly can serve as an interim national president, until presidential elections are held. The inconvenient truth is that Maduro has shown no inclination to abandon his post, and the constitution says no such thing.

    In fact, the grounds for replacing a president are very clearly laid out in the first paragraph of Article 233 of the Venezuelan constitution and do not include fraudulent or illegitimate election, which is what the cabal has been claiming. In the convoluted logic of the US government and its epigones, if the people elect someone the cabal doesn’t like, the election is by definition fraudulent and the democratically elected winner is ipso facto a dictator.

    How does it improve the living of the Venezuelan people when Chavistas use the looted money to buy foreign luxury goods or use looted real estate for their enjoyment?
     
    What if the "looted" wealth was stolen in the first place? Is it morally wrong to steal from a thief?

    And Chavez was certainly not enjoying the loot: he used it to greatly benefit poor Venezuelans. He was not a wealthy man when he died.

    For me the conclusion is that the Chavistas have failed the Venezuelan people.
     
    For me, the conclusion is that Chavez didn't have time to overcome the entrenched oligarchs. It takes many years and generations to educate people and build infrastructure, and it takes longer, far far longer, when the country's oligarchs are fighting your reforms. Even China needed generations, in spite of having defeated its corrupt elites in a civil war. Fortunately, a unified China was too strong for the West to break. Unfortunately, a divided Venezuela was and is too weak.
  • @annamaria
    Venezuelan people have elected Maduro, not the ridiculous and treasonous Guaido.
    If your chosen boy is so good, why did the Venezuelans show no support for him during the legitimate election process? No wonder that the chosen boy Guaido has promptly gone to pledge his allegiance to the zionized international banking cabal.

    LOL, indeed Venezuela has one of the best, most secure elections in the Western world.

    Henri Falcón was the opposition politician who finished a very distant second in that election, over four million votes (47%) behind Maduro. Nobody has shown or even attempted to show that any votes, never mind millions of votes, were stolen from Falcón. In Venezuela’s electoral system, a very small amount of ballot stuffing is detectable in any contested election. That’s why, in 2012, Jimmy Carter said the electoral system was the best in the world.

    That soundness of the electoral system helps to explain the vitriol Falcón received from other Maduro opponents over his decision to run in the election. US officials threatened Falcón with sanctions if he ran. During the campaign, one of Falcón’s top advisors became exasperated enough to publicly ask the opposition party Voluntad Popular (Guaidó’s party) to “stop spreading lies” that a secret pact existed between Maduro and Falcón.
    […]
    First, votes are secret in Venezuela, so offers of a chance at a prize or other inducements at these puntos rojos can, at best, increase turnout, but not the government’s share of the vote. Second, there were four different groups of observers who monitored the election, and they concluded it was clean. Their reports are here, here, here and here. Third, economic sanctions and threats by the US government were a massive attempt to sway the electorate – to send the message that voting for Maduro will bring intensified economic sanctions (which, in addition to being illegal, were already killing people).

  • Perhaps the [s]election of Trump will hasten what has been in works as a result of US’ foreign policy heretofore–induced by Israel and its fifth column, at the very least least since 9/11: a realization of US hegemony, arrogance and disdain for its own (populace) representative interests.

    The need to get out from this imperious foreign policy disaster has had the side-effect of precipitous collaboration amongst some of unlikely bedfellows, as a result of the inescapable recognition of this pronounced and inevitable fate–sooner-than-later–to form alliances (even against their respective natural distrust in the face to this ever belligerent Goliath).

    The growing multi-polar world is one that will, in the end, be the the best countermeasure to the runaway narcissism of [exceptional–as it believes itself to be ever more so arrogantly] the dominant empires of the world.

    We just got done conquering Iraq. We haven't stayed to loot the oil. So now you believe we're going to Venezuela to take their crappy heavy oil? It would be easier for us just to build a pipeline to Alberta and import all their cheap, shut-in heavy crude. Mr. Hudson apparently doesn't read Platt's.

    Afghanistan has more minerals than Venezuela. Why are we leaving then?

    This article has many inaccuracies. You accept them at face value, knowing nothing about the oil business. In fact, Venezuela has 10x the refining capacity of Trinidad. And Texaco gave up on it years ago. Heavy Ven crude takes special refining equipment and usually has to be blended with lighter crudes. Oddly enough, Ven. has to import oil for this reason.

    And in 2008, Ven. produced around 2.4 mmbbls/day. Their stated refining capacity is around 2/3 of this figure. PDVSA has raised all kinds of financing over the years including in the US. To say they've been starved of refining capacity or capital is just absolute BS.

    Yes, American foreign policy is a mess. But folks thinking we have designs on Venezuela are just nuts. Meanwhile, Mr. Hudson continues to talk out of his asshole on subjects about which he is manifestly ignorant. Every interview and article is the same : "The US is responsible for all the problems in "fill in the blank"".

    I wish we had the power he ascribes to us. Lately we mess up everything. The best thing that could happen to Ven. is that we invade it bloodlessly, mess it up more and inject $3Trillion into it the way we did in Afghanistan. Sheesh!

    We just got done conquering Iraq. We haven’t stayed to loot the oil.

  • Venezuela has claimed to have unveiled a mass conspiracy involving military personnel and politicians trying to unseat the country’s government by force, as well as plans of potential U.S. military action.

    Venezuelan Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez has alleged that Julio Borges, an opposition politician and former head of the National Assembly, was behind both a failed 2014 coup and an assassination attempt last August against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. The information was allegedly gathered by confessions from recently-arrested Colonel Oswaldo García, who was behind another unsuccessful conspiracy to unseat Maduro last year and was seen confessing on video during Thursday’s conference.

    We are, in the end, who we are defined by our contributions–aside from the leeches (poor or rich) who simply have found a convenient way to profit from such lazy scheming! These, especially ones that make a fortune from other’s work should NOT be rewarded from their theft, but they are, nonetheless, in our societies!

    I keep pointing out to what is happening in front of the world’s eyes (eyes wide shut and fed distortions by TPTB, to be more realistic) in France with our own democratic cousins, although far from a real revolution and for many differing reasons, who, week-after-week, continue to mobilize and choose to make their voices heard. [I must admit, despite my attempts to awaken people, few seem to care or pay attention to what I post…at least that is what I believe]

    This is a real-life example of an organic uprising–grievances aside–of what could gain traction–in large numbers if people kept an eye on it, but will the average distracted person even dare to challenge his/her place in the rapidly changing world? Doubtful, to say the least, but it is a real-life avenue of what resistance really looks like–no matter their abuse by the security services!!!

    Most people are simply not sufficiently ‘moved’ to imagine their future subservience or utter destruction from the gene pool. The future prospects for people’s progeny is unfathomable to contemplate; it is likely more profound than anyone of can dare to imagine.

    So it comes to this: either you stand up and fight, no matter the outcome, or you are resigned to the will of the powers who scheme endlessly in opposition to your will, desires, and way of life–NO MATTER YOU LEANINGS! They control BOTH SIDES for a reason….and that reason is simple: their will, their desire, their ability to make a difference!

    Now, comes the difficult question: when will WE (as a whole, even if in the minority) dare to stand-up, not to be raped anymore, guided by principle, morality, self-confidence, and a greater-than-me willingness to finally challenge authority, what is spoken, what is happening to our own citizenry beyond the keyboard?

    One only has a single life; what one chooses to do with it is entirely up to each individual, but having done NOTHING (or the minimum) is but a recipe for what will be done when left for others, more powerful, economically and politically more advantaged to do as they wish.

    So, is it too late? Are we too distracted with our everyday lives to see what awaits us and our children….?

    What it boils down ultimately is this: WHO is to be sacrificed, you or your progeny? tic-toc, tic-toc, tick-toc….

    Max Blumenthal: How US trained Juan Guaido for Regime Change:

  •   "Pay the soldiers. The rest do not matter." This was the deathbed counsel given to his sons by Roman Emperor Septimius Severus in A.D. 211. Nicolas Maduro must today appreciate the emperor's insight. For the political survival of this former bus driver and union boss hangs now upon whether Venezuela's armed forces choose to...
  • In what appears a wild and bizarre attempt to kick start an “arm the moderate rebels” campaign or establish a “Free Venezuelan Army” of sorts, a rogue Venezuelan colonel who’d been living in exile was arrested after he slipped back into the country as part of a clandestine operation to organize and arm the opposition. The arrest and detention of 54-year old retired Colonel Oswaldo Garcia Palomo was confirmed by his associates on Tuesday, and came after the former National Guard officer tipped off Bloomberg that some kind of secret mission was in the works last week with the cryptic words, “Pay attention to me in the coming days.”

    A fugitive Venezuelan colonel who has been actively and publicly seeking the ouster of President Nicolas Maduro has been detained by the government, two people close to him said on Tuesday.

    That Colonel was picked up in a border city just across from Colombia. He was easy to spot, looked well fed, to escape any notice if one wishes to clandestinely enter Venezuela is first to go on a starvation diet for some months so the agent would look like a typical local.
    , @David
    I imagine the Venezuelan Security folks were reading Bloomberg as well and were indeed paying attention to him. Great plan to slip into a country after broadcasting your intentions on a global news outlet, what genius, what intelligence, what daring, what bravery, what idiocy!!! And I suppose by now the State Security folks have extracted whatever useful info they needed from this clown.

    Hey Tac,

    I think that's a fake Twitter account, but you can be very much forgiven the mistake, because the actions of that psychopathic criminal are all too real.

    @Anon[248]

    time to impeach Trump, Mike Pence is already the real POTUS anyway.
     
    the problem with that is Pence is far worse. A true believer in 'Christian' Zionism, he wants his rapture! And by the devil - he'd murder millions to force the Christ to give it to him.

    I can’t say for sure if it is real or not (it does not have the blue check verification), but it was setup in 2009 and has only 16 total tweets total. It seems to me that setting up a fake account in 2009 only to use it now would require some serious foresight. Moreover, if you read the few tweets from 2009 it certainly sounds like they would come from him. Nonetheless, I understand were you are coming from. It is certainly not my intention to mislead anyone here. Thanks for pointing out your skepticism, and feel free to do so again in the future if it does not meet you smell-test, sometimes having extra eyes helps.

    Now on a related note:

  • @Rurik

    an embattled defender of Venezuela being attacked by Yankee imperialists and their domestic lackeys, that could resonate among the masses in Latin America.
     
    Well, it resonates very strongly with this particular 'Yankee' American, tired of all the zio-wars, and assorted horrors these zio-fiends are perpetrating in my nation's (now blackened) name.

    The "Yankee" imperialists just appointed neocon- super asshole Eliot Abrams to further menace the people of Venezuela.

    Abrams has never in his feculent life thought or done anything that wasn't Israel-first.

    A Jewish supremacist most foul, being part of the neocon cabal responsible for 9/11, and all the subsequent wars and horrors.

    I guess David Frum or Max Boot were otherwise occupied telling lies.

    God speed to Maduro and the good people of Venezuela!

    Trump is a neocon stooge.

    May we all somehow survive the murderous, megalomaniacal insanity of these neocon, Jewish supremacist psychopaths.

    Here is what the despicable psychopath Elliot Abrams said himself:

    https://twitter.com/Elliott_Abrams/status/1090025434538946560

    “I think we can acquire Venezuela’s oil without much fuss. Advisor asked what would happen to citizens who depend upon that wealth to survive. Not my job to care! Their impoverishment is inversely related to our success.”

    BTW, Bibi announced Israel’s support for Guaido:

    86% of Venezuelans Oppose Military Intervention, 81% Against US Sanctions, Local Polling Shows

    The vast majority of Venezuelans oppose military intervention and US sanctions to try to remove President Nicolás Maduro from power, according to polling by the local firm Hinterlaces.

    https://grayzoneproject.com/2019/01/29/venezuelans-oppose-intervention-us-sanctions-poll/

    background on political neophyte Guaido:

    Juan Guaidó is the product of a decade-long project overseen by Washington’s elite regime change trainers. While posing as a champion of democracy, he has spent years at the forefront of a violent campaign of destabilization.

    He seems a little out there, but if he's sincere, then he's a thousand times better than the whores of Zion currently betraying our nation and people in the Senate.

    He actually talked a lot about Paul Nehlen when he was running (they kept in touch regularly according to him).

    He seems genuine, but these days one cannot easily tell. If you want to follow him and make up your own mind this is his YouTube channel

    Congratulations, Mr. Pear.

    You really got under the skin of the commentariat's crypto-zionists. That RT and Press TV must be forced to register under FARA tells us everything we need to know about the character of America's Deep State.

    Thanks,

    I believe in the free marketplace of ideas, no matter how disagreeable or repulsive to others they may be. It just seems like a good idea that we not let the government go around arresting anybody they want to without due, and public, process.

    What crime could Marzieh Hashemi possibly have witnessed that it is so secret that the public (and maybe even the witness) is not allowed to know? I would still like to know what the supposed crime was.

    Almost all of this government secrecy is bs, including grand jury hearings.

    As the astute Bernie Sanders is in his mid-70s, maturely educated & set in his defiant "crony capitalist"political principles, I can see how, as reflected in your comment # 335, that "New member of congress schools Bernie Sanders on how to oppose US imperialism...,"

    No doubt, given the enormity of US federal deficit & overwhelming military expense involved in maintaining hostile imperialistic military-action, one can expect a new Congress to sprout and display a flower that "opposes" some US imperialism.

    For me, the huge problem shall remain, and such is the masterfully engineered-psychosis that the US's passion to go to war for the sake of Israeli territorial & financial interests will not be tagged as "imperialism."

    In addition, am confident that the The DNC Kings & Queens are presently cultivating new versions of US Congressional darlings who will promote a united Legislative & Executive Branch that will excoriate "Imperialism" but of course will not pertain to doing such awful stuff on behalf of Israel.

    At any rate, tac, am assuming you're domiciled in France. Fyi, during the 2016 Democrat presidential campaign, I followed Bernie Sander's political fortune and unique DNC system misfortune; the latter hard knock "schooling" executed under the direct influence of Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (Zigh)

    Despite "The Bern's" political awareness that his own Democrat Party royally screwed his presidential nomination chances, Sanders ate kosher crow, and went on to campaign & passionately endorse the cackling & Middle East warmongering HRC for president. (Note: At Scranton High School's auditorium venue, Autumn 2016, I was present for a really great & principled speech delivered by "The Bern" but one that unabashedly supported (ugh) Hillary for president)

    To conclude, tac, linked below & fyr is a clip from a 2016 HRC/Sanders televised debate. Am figuring a new & AIPAC-refreshed Sanders shall rise this year. Thanks a lot tac, 'cause we must tick-tock carefully with eyes/ears open & heads up!
